Chinese New Year: 0050.0502

EDITORIAL COMMENT

                A complaint has been made to THE ECONOMIST that during the Chinese New Year festivities boys and girls of tender years were supplied with intoxicating drinks by the hospitable heathen Chinee.  If there is any foundation for this complaint, the police should turn their attention to the Chinamen who supplied the liquor, although the parents who permit their children to frequent Chinese joints cannot be held altogether blameless.
