Judging from a remarkable incident which occurred in one of the liquor bars at the Carlton football ground, the use of noxious gas is to play an important part in the rivalry between hotel keepers in Melbourne.
The bar was crowded during the half-time interval of the Carlton-Geelong match, when nauseating gas was released in such quantities as to speedily clear it of occupants. The licensee, Mr. Charles Orr, is President of the newly formed Hotelkeepers' Association of Victoria, which embraces 200 licensees, all of whom sell Richmond beer. He stated to-day that he believed it was done to injure his business. All the barmen were effected by the fumes. One of them shortly before the occurrence noticed three men with a bottle, the contents of which were poured on the ground. The nature of the liquid or the gas is not known.
