• WELLINGTON, April 10. Seamen's and absent voters' permits jvill not fee announced until returning
I officers make the filial count, which will be available probably by tlie middle of next week in the case of city electorates and a few days later from country districts. • H. D. Hunt, president of the Efficiency League, in an interview, said that lie was disappointed that the majority for Prohibition was not larger, but he felt confident that the soldiers would be found voting in much the same proportion as the civilians. The greatest obsacle the. Prohibitionists had faced had been compensation, which was the Trade's chief card, and which had been blazed well. Compensation, however, was a double-edged weapon, which, if Prohibition was not carried at this poll, would probably act as a boomerang nest time.
