By this uiethod unemployment ctibe abolifth- od for every person who would will- ing to work could have the same op- portunity as another, advancement would dc-jjend upon the individual, but compulsory poverty would be ab- solutely wiped out.

This will be published shortly. Socialism, them in their po- litical sense and wishes to know the difference of policies.

One can see at a glance thoy do not recognize there is a social problem to ba solved for thoy never take into wealth of the world (or a country) would be parcelled out, both to the deserving and undeserving, in equal quantities. Socialism has nothing to do with such absurd ideas ajid a casual per- usal of its literature would soon dis- Now, a brief summing up of the .policies of Labor and Socialist par tics. When I speak" of the Labor Par ty, I am not referring to the Inde pendent Labor party of Great Britair or that of Australia for they are both distinctively Socialistic in their pro gram and propoganda, but refer to Labor parties which spring up disappear. These so-ailed Labor parties, whicl jumble a few palliate measures to gcther and call them a platform, lik they dif' in the early days of work ing clasa politics in B. C., are no- thing else but capitalist parties, fo they uphold a system that places hu man energy, both mental and phy the category o commodities, that can be bought an sold like old junk. The Socialist party stands for every measure of reform that will benefit the wage-earner, and being different from the "Conservalib" party, we re- cognize only two classes in Society, capitalist and wage-earning classes; and we stand for the latter. The difference between a "Labor" man and a Socialist was aptly des- cribed by a friend of mine when he 'said: "A Labor man will be satis- fied with part of what he produces SOME WHEAT Wells Land and Cattle Co., Ltd, shipped over bushels of fall month Dili (us and spring wheat this past from their Alberta farm 20 south of Lethbridge.

They do not understand the system of-, economics which govern modern society, and, failing that, cannot get an exact di- agnosis of the disease which is afflict- ing humanity, a disease which is de- stroying society, by a small possess- ing class 'dying of surfeit and an enormous multitude of property-less .vorkers perishing for the want ol that which the few have too much.

MARX. A Socialist is an individual who is conscious that the greatest prob- lem confronting the human family, the social problem, is that every man, womsri and child shall have a full! of subsistence; and such can only bfi; guaranteed by allowing free access t mills, factories, railroads and nation al resources, etc., to take ALL the product giving in return, on an aver age, a bare subsistence. The Socialist sees that the lega machinery of capitalist society i working continually to it property rights and that the only waj out is to get the working class aliv to its own interests; capture the rein government and legislate fo the benefit of those who use the in- ed at Niagara Falls as about to be In no year in the history of the inaugurated, he explained that a mod- ;onservative Government which erate form of that service has been leld office from 1878 to 18% did the planned, which will utilizse the ex- 'ostoffxce Department have a surplus, isting postal machinery; let ue n 1835 there was a deficit oi not prove too costly.

In reviewing the postal develop- ment since the Liberal Government took office, the present Postmaster-' reneral, Mr. Lemieux, said in a speech at Niagara Falls: "I take no i credit for this surplus. It was due] to the master hand of my predecrs- sor, Sir William Mulock, one of the most public spirited men this coun- try .has ever produced. I am only following in his footsteps. And. mark well, this magnificent surplus has coincided with a substantial in- crease in the salaries of the post- masters, with a large increase in the number of postoffices, with an mous addition in the mail service, and. last, but not least, with a re- du'cfton in the postal rates." Mr. Ltmitiux is entitled to the cre- dit of having proved himself a worthy successor of Sir William Mulock.
