ALLEGED SALE OF BEER AT 1 shilling A GALLON
At a meeting of the Licensed Victuallers a statement
was said to have been heard by various members, 
that one of the members of their association was
selling beer at 1 shilling a gallon. The matter had
previously been before the committee, when the
secretary was asked to investigate. He had since done
so, and found that the allegation had been applied to
Mr. Pilkington of the Ribble View Inn, and it was
untrue.
