THE PROHIBITION POLL. "I am in favour of Prohibition, but I am against paying a cent of compensation to The.'Trade," says many a moderate drinker. Tens of thousands of N.Z. electors feel exactly the same way, yet have determined to strike out the top line on Thursday, April 10, for a very good reason. They realise that compensation is only being paid so that Prohibition can operate immediately instead of giving the Trade the four and a-half years' additional life provided under tlhe old Act. The National Efficiency Board—a body of keen, shrewd business men, unbiassed by any considerations as regards the moral! aspect—after hearing the sworn evidence of both Prohibition and liquor advocates, decided that it was essential in. the national interest that Prohibition should be secured at once. The report is a startling indictment of the liquor trade yet, despite this fact, the Board also recommended the payment of compensation. Why? Because it realised that Prohibition should bo secured immediately. See to it tJhat New Zealand obtains this great reform on Thursday, April 10. Strike oxit the top line! 5 36
