COUNTESS WAVERS THE Countess o� Warwick, who has been for so many years a plHor of the Socialist movement, is no longer a devout disciple of Karl Marx and his theories for attaining a millennium. This is not to say that she has abandoned all her socialistic Views. LJke Hyndwion and one or two other of, the "Intellectuals" in the movement, she cannot support a policy that knows no such thing as patriotism. If one has any regard for law and order, at all, she prefers he be governed from the British House of Commons rather than from' Berlin or Vienna. Although she has not yet -made any 'Public declardtdon of her attitude, she, has privately intimated to the leaders of tlie Socialist movement that they can no longer depend upon her financial support to the extent that has been hitherto given. It Is understood that the prospect of "Syndicalism"-In which she has no * ,?_S&"*^ ' t confidence - �oml- as the consignment was at owner's, in his employ.
