DEMANDS REPEAL OF CONSCRIPTION AND STANDS FOR THE FRANCHISE Sir.-~-I enclose, a copy of a resolution carried, without dissent, at. our las-t W.C-T.r. meeting. Auckland Central, which celebrated the nineteenth anniversary of the granting of electoral franchise to tbe women of New Zealand.-E. J. PUDNEY. "This meeting of Auckland Central Women's Christian Temperance. Union desires to enter its emphatic protest against the compulsory of the Defence Act, now in force ii*/ New Zealand,"and urges that no young man or boy should be compelled to bear arms or" undergo military training who objects on conscientious grounds to do so. . "Further, that this meeting regards the possession of the electoral franchise as the inalienable right of every adult citizen of this Dominion, and therefore considers that no conscientious objector to compulsory military training, whilst under the age of 21 years, should be deprived of his electoral rights in tbe replace.
"PROFESSOR MILLS (who c-n't a Professor, and therefore stands convicted of decept ; or) wrote an art.cle last week in the Pi age or Page called "Revolutionary Journalism," which icsolved itself into a most elaborate explanation of his conduct in the Auckland Mayoral election, but which neither helps the alleged Professor nor justifies the conduct. Mills was editor of a paper for whose editorials ho now disclaims responsibility!!!! —was there ever before such an editor shue Adam ? "Americr.n nicthcds" again, we- presume. As ago:i*st this revolutionary scapegrace and the I .deration Mills ends his article by quoting Col. Worn stock's summary, of I.W.W. ten-dungs, which is almost as logical and weighty a proceeßag as quoting Taffc on Socialism or the devil on Jesus. Docs Mills quote his enemy to endp-se HIS teachings? Anyway, there has never been a man in New Zealand so elaborate and verbose and meaningless in "explaining away" such facts as cannot bo drowned hi n diarrhoea of words as W. T. Mills.
Capitalism stunts the child: Socialism will develop it. Capitalism educates the child in prejudice: Snchilisni will teach it to think for itself.
