Mr and Mrs P. Snowden- are duo to reacii Dunedin on Saturday next. Apart altogether from tho special topic on wliich they will speak, they both come with a splendid reputation for platform eloquence. Concerning Mrs Snowden, the testimony of those well qualified to judge is that she is the finest Indy speaker in England. Possessing an attractive personality, her appearance on the platform immediately wins the sympathy of any audience sho may address, and speaking, as shci does, with tho passion and pathos of stronglyheld conviction, her eloquence becomes effective to a remarkable degree. Although comparatively young in years, she has crowded within the area of her public life an amount of platform work that is simply astounding. During tho Lost nine years sho has addressed nearly 1,600 social, religious, and political meetings. She has been speaking, as a rule, almost every day of the week, Sundays included, and sometimes twice a day. She has visited America six times, and is almost as) well known there as sho is in her native land. Tho testimony to Air Snowdon’s effectiveness as a speaker is equally emphatic. He was elected as a Labor M.P. for Blackburn in 1900. and lias retained his seat ever since. He ranlcs easily among tho very ablest speakers in tho British Parliament. He has studied the social question from top to bottom, and there is no man who on that subject carries greater weight when ho speaks, whether it is in Parliament ct on tho public platform.
