COMMISSIONER HODDER, Commissioner Hodder, who has been appointed to command the Salvation Army forces in New Zealand, will be officially welcomed in Dunedin by the Salvationists of Otago on Tuesday in the Salvation Army Hall, Dowling street. On this occasion the officers of Otago will, as far as possible, be present, and a large gathering of Army friends is anticipated. Commissioner Hodder became an officer in 1882, and has therefore seen 32 years of service in the ranks, during which time, besides very important commands in Great Britain, he lias commanded the Holland, territory. His last appointment was Japan,' where for the last five years his influence has been largely instrumental in assuring a work of permanent good. So great lias this work been that the Mikado has just acknowledged'its value by donating to the Army funds £3,000—-a very large sum indeed for Japan. The Army started their work in this interesting country in 1895, and among the principal features has been to make it possible for the Yoshiwarra women _ to abandon immorality. The establishment of 7o corps, or societies, and eight social institutions, with over 200 officers, is an evidence that the Army have become a permanent factor in the future of Japan. Commissioner Hodder and Mrs Hodder (who is an able second to her husband and a fine speaker) have therefore brought good eredentials, and the Salvation Army in New Zealand may look forward with every confidence that their new leaders will uphold and advance their interests. Colonel and Mrs Powley will also be present and conduct the induction on Tuesday next.
