REINFORCEMENTS.

Considerable enthusiasm was displayed at tho recruiting meeting at South Duncdiu last night, and some 15 applications were received for enrolment. It is understood that less tlian half a dozen of these are eligible for tho reinforcements, several being under ago. One of the number enrolled for tho suggested force to Samoa. Captain Eraser and Sergeantmajor J. Cummings were the military officials present on duty. The 'Otago military district is divided in four area districts, Dunedin City and suburbs being one of these. It is a notahlo fact that the bulk of tho men at present enrolling are from £ho Dunedin area; in fact, it in said that this particular area haa contributed almost 50 per cent, more than the other three areas combined. If the other three areas, which include such centres as Oamaru, Gore, Invercargill, Milton, Balclutha, Lawrence—in fact, all tho towns south of the Waitaki—were to respond to tho call for more men aa liberally as Dunedin has dono Otago's quota would be about completed now.
