Local Leagues in Connection with the Convention
Local Leagues in Connection with the Convention.
Before the Convention adjourned, they adopted a resolution to the following effect:—
That the delegates be requested, on returning to their several localities, to establish local leagues, holding themselves in correspondence and connection with the Convention Council of Melbourne, and that these Leagues be requested to use a common card, and style themselves by a common name, varied only by the name of the place in which they may be established, thus—"The Convention Land and Reform League of Ballaarat," "The Convention Land and Reform League of Bendigo," &c., &c.
In accordance with this resolution, numerous local leagues have been established, and cards have been struck by the Council and circulated to these several leagues.
