.CRITICISM OF MR. ALGIE (•Parliamentary Refiflrter. WELLINGTON', this day. "This attitude was just that of a pettifogger of tn« most smug and supercilious kind,'\said Mr. Thorn (Govt., Thames) in the",, House of Representatives to-day inYreply to the criticism of the Unifted Nations Charter levelled by Mr/ Algie (Nat., Remuera) last evt*ri ! .i?.'g;' He said Mr. Algie's spee-'i'ii was deplorable and accused F bim of being pitiful and childish.'

Mr. Algie seemed to be a pitiful ease of a man who had dedicated his intellect to the task of putting the clock back, continued Mr. Thorn. He came from the university and was supposed to represent learning in the world of to-day. Mr. Algie should be holding up a light by which ordinary people might better be able to see their way, but he would lead the people of New Zealand into a sort of valley of dry bones, where all the hope they had would be extinguished. He was trivial and childish. The same triviality existed in his reference to the International Court of Justice, the constitution of which was drafted by the highest jurists of 50 nations, all of them making a sincere contribution to the organisation for world peace. All Mr. Algie could do with that part of'the Charter however, was to scoff.
