BEN TILLETT'S ADVICE.
(Pkr Press Association.—Copyright.]
SYDNEY, October 6. A deputation of Socialists sought Mr Ben Tillett's advice regarding the reorganisation of the party. They stated that they had become thoroughly disorganised, and complained that Labor members as soon as they got into Parliament ceased to be propagandists of the cause, and no longer identified themselves with the leagues. Mr Tillett said that if the statements were true he would not run a single man for Parliament. He did not believe in those who were working in the interests of the cause going into Pai> liament. It was outside that they were wanted. A propagandist work was a matter of pure work, organisation, and patient plodding. They should stick at nothing in arousing public interest, and if the Press " slated " them them so much the better.
