Orsoya^ for- Londdnj^.vi^fi'Suezr-ivMov • only will the Army be" represented by its growing organisations in France, Italy, Belgium, Germany, Finland, and other European countries, but delegates. will bo present from Iceland, Korea, India, Ceylon, Japan, South Africa, the United States, and Latin South America It is remarked as a singular fact that in those European countries which have moro or less exhibited a materialistic spirit within the past half century, large masses of the people have within the last few years become whole-heart-ed Salvationists. The same applies to countries like -India, where by its social operations, the Army has won to its cause many- thousands of persons who were hitherto plunged in heathenism. The expansion of the medical work and the rescue work among the Eastern races, and among the natives / of South Africa, which is warmly encouraged by the authorities, is likely to receive the careful consideration of the congress.
