A highly-placed Salvation Army of ficial says: 'The injunction will make void the whole of the High Councils prior proceedings, but will not pre vent it re-assembling and passing a similar resolution. The Council will probably take that course within the next few days, with the difference that we will possibly hear Mr. Jowett, KXX, on the General's behalf.'
