THE VOTE OF THE SEAMEN

AND THE REJECTED DEMOCRAT. NOTABLE CHANGE OF ATTITUDE. [Special, to ran Stab.] AUCKLAND. November 25. The concisely compiled pamphlet entitled ‘ Whom to Vote For.’ and issued in the name of the Wellington Branch of the Federated Seamens Union of Australasia, was somewhat bitterly referred to to-night by Mr M. J. Savage, Social Democrat candidate for Auckland Central. The Social Democratic party, Mr Savage said, were the practical issuo of a Labor Conference held in Wellington, when there were 407 delegates present, representing 245 organisations. Tho Federated Seamen’s union were represented at that conference, “ and,” said Mr Savage, “in Auckland Central I represent officially the findings of that conference.” And vet he now found the secretary of the teamen’s Union in Wellington advising seamen to voto for tho sitting member in Auckland Central, and stating that lus union in meeting assembled had resolved to recommend members to vote for various candidates named. Mr Savage wanted to know how many members were represented at the meeting that was alleged to have been held. .1 ho pamphlet was signed by Mr W. T. Young, who. about this time last year, was talking about marching workers 15,000 strong upon Wellington. (Laughter.) “ The days of these things have gone,” declared the candidate, “ and tho days of reason and common sense are here.”
