WELLINGTON, April 5
In reference to the cable message from New York stating that "prohibition was repudiated in Chicago by a. majority of 250,000," Professor Nicholls, lecturer in the employ of the £few Zealand Alliance, who left his home in Boston, as late as February 17, states as his opinion that no poll was taken in Chicago. This was unnecessary. "When prohibition is affirmed by the State a city does not vote on such matters. It is probable that the defeated candidate for the Mayoralty was a strong prohibitionist, hence this cablegram. / SYDNEY, April 6. Reuters Agency expresses the opini ion that the Chicago prohibition mes- ! sage is in no way ambiguous. It refers | purely to the prohibition vote taken in connection with the city municipal elecj tions as distinct from the previous State' vote. Considering the population, a I majority of 250,000 is reasonably probable. \
