"He was ONE MAN wa8 KILLED .AND 'DOZEN INJURED IN FIGHT WITH MEN London, Jan. 28.-An interesliiig (lis play of debates between George Bernard Shaw and llflalre Belloc drew crowds to Quonn's Hall last night. Hundreds wore unable to gain admission. , The. two writers met In a novel debate on Socialism, each having twenty minutes of argument alternately until each had spoken one hour. Mr. Belloo opened with ten remarks: "If we do not re-establinh the Institution of property, we shall reestablish the institution of slavery. There is no third course." In spite of-thls proposition, Mr. Belloo argued thuB: "If we do not manage to distribute the means of production among so large a number of families of the state as to determine the soul and spirit of the state, then, as an alternative, we shall re-establish the slavery which compelled certain families In large numbers by' positive law to work for the privileged minority." In reply, Mr. Shaw said: '*Mr. Belloq abhors slavery. So dc I. We both want to do away with it. Mr. Belloc says 'distribute private property.' I say abolish private property." Later on Mr. Shaw said: "One hundred years ago every man in America could get property for the asking. "Now, there Is iro greater hell of slavery on the face of the earth than in the United States of America. All that has grown, not from historical sources of conquest, but from.private property. I believe in Socialism, and if Mr. Belloc thinks there is anything impractical in Socialism let him tell me what it is." Then Mr. Belloc talked some more, without becoming very convincing, after which Mr. Shaw compared Mr, Belloc to a rubber band which flew back when pulled out and released In the final bout both appeared to divide the honors of the debate.

A certain gentleman called Phemistus happened into the company of a young lady, whose light struck him. with great admiration, Cclimene (for that was the lady's name), being but of a very-mean fortune, though, of extraordinary beauty. Phemistus, who had immense riches, made many serious reflections upon this sudden and violent engagement. He could take no rest. He found himself in a perpetual agitation. But, fearing lest his passion, which he felt so violent in Its beginning, should in the end lead hith to the satisfying his desires to the prejudice of his fortune, he resolved to banish from his soul so dangerous > a pendesses. He opposed it, therefore, all he could. But, finding he could not presently overcome it. he called in a,sentiment, of glory to the assistance of his reason. He had the resolution to part from what he loved, and to go a volunteer into the army. But he returned thence more amorous than he went, ,'and visited his mistress with greater joy,, and a stronger desire. Then blaming himself, for his weakness, he made a second effort, and undertook a second voyage, which.was to Italy.

Fielding occupied over four columns in the .Morning Post (Unionist) today to reply to critics of his assertions' oi reciprocity. "Imperial federation is a magnili--cent drtain," he says in conclusion,... "and we are all better for dreaming it. I am one who believes that if , we have patience and arc "hot too anxious to run before we have learned to walk we shall eventually evolve some system which, though it may not accomplish all that some Imperialists desire, 'will bring several portions of the Empire into closer union. But I am persuaded that in this movement, whatever unity we may bring -abotit '� 'will- only 'be -attained' bf being content to have unity in things necessary imperial 'and by. leaving tp every portion of the Empire the;largest possible measure of local liberty! The trade interests and revenue needs of different portions bf^ the empire dili'er so widely thai, an attempt to create a uniform commercial policy for all would not help the good causa at all." �'.� .
