■4 SYDNEY. April 16. . The "Daily Telegraph,'* in a leader on the New" Zealand prohibition vote, after referring to the fact that the reduction of tho ■ Prohibition lead resulted almost wholly from men on active service, says: New Zealand soldiers may be regarded' as typical manhood and none had been so long away as to forget locai conditions, among which Prohibition was one of the best known and most discussed. Their _ vote may therefore be taken as v guide ■to .the feeling of the rest' of the population. It is a fair inference that a greater number of supporters of [Prohibition are women and a greater number of its opponents are men. If this is,so., the people of New Zealand may fairly be congratulated that they refused to take the irrevocable step. , They will have abundant opportunities of introducing national prohibition in future, LONDON, April 12.

Other factors included the effect of British hospitality as expressed in beer.
