CANTERBURY TOTALS.

The following are the totals for the Canterbury Province:— Continuance ... ... 40,866 Prohibition ... ... 39,311 Majority for Continuance ;-1,555 LEADERS' VIEWS. ' WELLINGTON; April 11. The Revs. S. Gray and J. Dawson, on behalf of the Alliance, -stated that they confidently expected the present majority would have been larger, but they refused to accept the suggestion that the Trade had already won the contest. The majority for prohibition was being steadily increased by every i corrected return. They declined to believe the young manhood of the I>o- i minion, who risked their lives for the ' Empire, were more interested in. con- ! tinuance of the liquor trade than the i welfare of the country. Whatever may be the final result of the poll, one thing had been .settled for ever, and that is the question of compensation. The question "Why pay £4,600,000?" will be asked, and with persistence, by the prohibition party. We are still of opinion that we have' a; distinct fighting chance of vanning this poll.
