HOW ELECTORATES VOTED.
An analysis of the unofficial figures of the polling published yesterday morning shows that 43 electorates ,yoted in favour of No-license,- and 33 in favour of Continuance. This majority of electorates in favour of Nolicense was largely secured in Otago, where not a single electorate voted in favour of Continuance, though two of the Southland electorates—Wakatipu and Wallace-^-did so. Another feature of the poll was that four of the "dry" electorates — Ohinemuri, Masterton, [Wellington South, and As'hbiirton— cast majorities 1 against Prohibition. Following are the electorates which voted for Prohibition:— Bay of Islands, Marsden Kaipara, Waitemata, Eden, Auckland West, Grey Lynn, Parnell, Mamikau, Franklin, Raglan, Thames, Tauranga, Waikato, Gisborne, Stratford, .
