MR. M. J. SAVAGE FOR AUCKLAND.
Tho progress of Socialism in Auckland continues. We have taken a new homo and moved into it. Our address is now Federal Hall, Wellesley St., W., and Aye are at home to callers, friends, or foe at all time-;- The hall is a good one, and Avhen Aye get fairly settled will be very comfortable. Our monthly socials are a hugs sue- C 9?.-;. and Avill be. move so now that Aye shall bo able to hold them in onr oavh premises. Tho Sunday afternoon teas aro also a great feature cf our Avork here and for the success of this also tho Social Committee are to be thanked. All the A-isitors Aye have had from A-iilages doAvn south, such as Wellington, have expressed surprise and i>le;u=t'.se nt being able to meet so many at 'there social gatherings on' Sunday afternoons.
The good work of onr Comrade Scott Bennett at the Opera House and also tbe speakers class and leading*' d.viii:__ the week al-so continue. The Opera House lecture-; are the talkof the ciiy. Many are the anxious enquiries we h.ave as to whether Scott Be)inctt really intends to go away, and as tr> Avho-u avo shall get to fill h's place. And ib would never do to tell him all the nice things the people say about him who ask these questions. Although if flattery would spoil a man, then surely lie Avould bo spoilt, for there couldn't avcll be a greater source of flattery to himself if he cared to take them as'such, than these great
audiences which gather every Aveek to hear him speak. The sale* of literature are good, and still grooving, already this year Aye haA-o Kold OA-er £100 worth of literature, including neAvspapers. The Social Democrat and Thk Maokiland Wokke'R are in great demand. And engaged in the selling of these Aye haA-e a band of workers Avbo .always want to .sell more, no matter lioav iiiany the./ sell. City Central, Avhich is to be represented in Parliament by'our Comrade Mr. M. J. Savage, is being flooded Avith propaganda matter. Comrade Savage is not going into the fight in the way of ordinary -saA-ages. He Avill use no obsolete Aveapcns, but only the most up-to-date scientific methods of polltical
Avarfare. AVhen Savage Avins it Avill not be merely a win for him. but it Avill be a Avin for Socialism, for if one man more than another is to be thanked for the organisation of Socialism in Auckland then that man is our secretary, M. J. Savage; to him first occurred the idea of engaging H. Scott Bennett and on him has fallen a large part of the vrork which has fclloved as a result of that engagement. And that he has done that AAork Avell the state o? the organisation Avill testify. We shall see things being done Avl-.eii Aye have Fred Cooke, Ted Howard. Jim Munro, M. J. Savage, and a fe"* more of the same ilk in Parliament, and rhey Avill be there if the movement determines to put them there and Avorks toAynrds that, and at the same time Avorks for Industrial organisation outside of Parliament—T. BLOOD WORTH.
