Solution

This line refers to the following dialogue:

"And in this way, the ring will be broken up, you see, and then in every issue of the paper, we will enlighten the public on the Mayor‘s incapability on one point and another, and make it clear that all the positions of trust in the town, the whole control of municipal affairs, ought to be put in the hands of the Liberals."

It is said by Hovstad in conversation with Billing, as they celebrate Dr. Stockmann‘s decision to publish the report on the contamination of the baths. From this dialogue, Hovstad‘s true intentions can be understood. He wants to publish the doctor‘s report so that he can attack the local authorities and the Mayor by writing about their failures in his paper and eventually bring about their downfall.
