Comrie (chairman of the executive cf the New Zealand Alliance), in the course of an interview at Wellington yesterday, said: " There appears to have been a falling off in tho vqte for Nolicense and Prohibition. I am not surprised at it under tho present circumstances, and I do not look upon it as an indication that tho growth of the Prohibition vote has been permanently checked. I recognise that all great reforms are achieved slowly and through many difficulties, and occasional reverses. ‘lt’s a long, long way to Tipperary,’ but we are not downhearted.”
