New Zealand Alliance.

ANNUAL REPORT,

United Press Association--By Electrics Telegraph.

WELLINGTON, July 5 The Annual Conference of the New Zealand Alliance opened to-day. The annual report, after reviewing the work of the year, aaya that the chief difficulty and the deepest source of regret lie* in the fact that while the great number of the churches of the colony stand side by side with them in this great conflict, so niany Ministers of religion hold aloof from, if they do not actively oppose the No-license movement.

The report quotes tho effect of drink as proved by statistics, the " British Medical Journal," and also tho opinion of Sir F. Treves, tho King's surgeon, and says :— " Surely then we may, without offence, plead vvith Ministers of the Christ who came to save, to give their most earnest consideration to facts such as these, and to ask themselves again whether it can be right to support tho public sale as a beverage of a drug which, for centuries?, has proved it3elf dangerous to life and character."

A hopeful view is expressed of the pro gress of the No-licence movement.
