After the elections lie. will put in a couple of-months or so *t Auckland. A very fine art postcard photo, of the visitor has been turned out in England, and a supply forwarded to F. B.

Branches should purchase a supply ia readiness for Hartley's meetings. o Gustavo Herve's "My Country, Right or .Wrong," is now to be had in cloth binding for 4s 6d. No better Christmas gift could be suggested. The edition has recently reached Wellington, and this unique work is on sale by the 'Socialist Party, Manners street. Buy while the supply lasts. W. E. Parry, vice-president N.Z.F.L, was hea*d to exc-ollent advantage on the Wellington wharves whilst in Wellington. He is at present at Waihi, but is likely to be back in the capital shortly. T. A. Eagle contemplates a, run to Auckland, Huntly, Hamilton and other northern, centres on "Maoriland Worker" business. "Tom" has been for years a foremost .toiler for the Socialist cause,-and .is a speaker of earnestness, logic and acceptance. Comrades couldn't do better than arrange for him to "take tlie stump" whilst he is with them, and they might do much worse than further Tom Eagle's quest for ads. and subs. it Visitors to cmr.-om.ee last week were Jack Desmond and A. Knight (of Gr'eymouth and Runanga. respectively), both bound for Sydney, the latter probably for good and the former on holiday. Scott Bennett "was at Waihi and Huntly this week. The British "Social Democrat" for September contains a character sketch (witli portrait) of Edward Hartley, who comes to organise for the N.Z. Socialist Party. A splendid reception was given to Scott Bennett on Sunday night week. The theatre was packed and many turned away. Before an audience eagerly anticipating the Mills-Bennett debate, Bennett was loudly cheered when he told same he was now waiting for Mills. Miss Helen. Barton, a temperance lecturer now touring the Dominion, is an ex-conncillor of Glasgow and a friend of Mr. Keir Hardie. She recently lectured in New South Wales for the No-license party, and has been engaged in similar work in the Dominion for the last five months.. She is an ardent advocate of prohibition. Points from E. J. Howard's speech at Christchurch: No palliative measure would help tlie workers as long as the shirkers robbed them.'- Tlie Socialists did not stand for the patching up of the present rotten syste —proved rotten over arid over again. What mv.st.be done was to provide a bran d N new article. Revolutionary Socialism did not mean bloodshed, but it meant a> complete r change from production, for profit to production for use; The killing would not be done under Revolutionary Socialism, but was being done now under the present system.
