ANNOUNCING THE RESULT.
WELLINGTON, April 9
The Hon. T. M. Wilford fill receive all returns in connection with to-day's licensing poll, and the first official announcement made by him will be through the "Gazette." The Government has decided that district results may be made public as soon as they go to the Chief Returning Officer, but even with the last district result known, the issue will be in doubt, unless one side or other has a majority of 45,000—the approximate size of the soldiers' vote. • The votes recorded in the United Kingdom, France, and Egypt will be cabled out,, but wireless will not be used. Thus the final result of the poll cannot'be announced till after the arrival of the last troopship sailing from En-o-land before April 10th. It will, therefore, be fairly late in May before the official announcement is made. No soldiers' votes will be announced till the "Gazette" is issued.
