All-India Temperance Conference.

WE understand preparations for the holding of the All-India Temperance Conference at Calcutta on Christmas next are going on apace and that we may look forward to a highly successful session. Rev. Herbert Anderson, a highly respected leader of the Temperance movement and an indefatigable worker in the cause is Secretary of the Reception Committee and Mr. W.R. Gourlay, C.I.E., I.C.S., has been selected as chairman of the Committee. We believe this is the first time in the history of this purely non-official movement that a distinguished member of the Indian Civil Service which runs the machinery of the administration and is responsible for the working of the Excise Department has been selected to act as its spokesman.
