CIVIC REFORM LEAGUE.
The Civic Reform League has lost no time since the New Year, and, at a well-attended meeting of the executive last night, arrangements were made to hold the first general meeting on Mon- day, January 12. A number of progress associations have approached the league for information as to its activi- ties, and steps will be taken to place the views of the organisation before those bodies. With this end in view, a meet- ing of representatives of the associa- tions interested will shortly be called, when the executive of the league will be present. In the meantime the en- rolment of members of the league is proceeding satisfactorily, and much en- thusiasm is being displayed. No steps have yet been taken to finalise the se-
lection of candidates for each ward at the municipal elections, but arrange- ments to that end will be made at an early date. Promises of enthusiastic support have been forthcoming from every district in the Greater Brisbane area. Brigadier-General L. C. Wilson, who presided at the public meetings held at the City Hall when the league was formed, was unanimously elected as president of the league, subject to his approval. Brigadier-General Wil- son it at present absent from Brisbane, and he will not return until early next week. A telegram has been despatched to him, expressing the hope of the executive that he will accept the office.
