Having the i the different members of the Union. scheone in working order, let us turn it to use for Socialism: In the first place; the Government has Ihe Post Office already but it is more or less by favor that one can get a; place on the staff, even if it is only a postman required. The post-mastea- makes the selection, and he can often put in his own choice or oblige a friend by selecting a certain individual. This is not fair. Un*er Soolalism, everyone who is qualified tor a posfman has the right to apply and having saiasfieil the examiner anil passed the tests required, the selection that is. a beginner so much, and each stc;) up. so much, increasing according to qualification so that all branches are included: eat.-i> Union liaving fixed a scale for its o-,vn mprab"]-s at a meeting o' the ditiorent Union officials with the members of the Government, then draw up a scale between different l-aioiis and workers of all snrt.s and rtecid? if one-say the Carpenters-are worth so mucli: ji'hat is a Postman.

Clerk. Doctor, etc.. worth, and having fixed this in conference, the scale fixed by the Unions shall be increased or decreased as the case may be. to put all on an equality, according to the nature of the employment and the amount of training required. Trades Unions make a fast line and only permit the members tcf work at one trade, while Socialism should allow everyone to take any trade or .position for which they are qualified, so that labor of ail kinds can be transferred from a congested employment to any other requiring more help. The remuneration for everyone having'been fixed, it should remain in force for at least j a year, and at the end of that time it would be found that some trades were over-staffed while others were under | the mark. Th? reason probably being that the remuneration was greater ^than It ought to be, taking into consideration the time required to qualify, or that the duties to be performed were light and pleasant while on'the other hand you might have no one to take a job because it la so unpleasant; yoii -would then adjust the balance by raising or lowering the wages during the next year until you get a fairly steady stream of-workers for all employments; there being no necessity for any strike as each year the different trades would have the opportunity for adju.stment. At the end of each financial year, the surplus profits would gff into the Common fund to be used as thought best. At first It should be used mostly to acquire pri-rate property, but. afterwards it could be divided between Capital and Labor-that is, if a good surplus is in hand, a number of units should be added to every member df the com-mutiity according to age, the older members receiving most, while labor would get a raise of so much per cent all round. In this way there would be very little to quarrPl about as, if Capital gets more, everyone has a share in the benefit, and if Labor gets more immediately, by a raise in wages; he gets less as an annuity at the end. It is simply a question of immediate or deferred pay. Then comes the question' of.the vote, I would divide the voters iilto five stages or classes, viz., the . family, parfsh, district provincial and imperial. Ist-The Family vote: 1 -woiild here modify my previous proposition of the man with the largest ?;umber of annuities getting any job and instead, allow the man to produce ^his wife's book, and al^o the childreus' boolfs tip to the age of 18, and a!so the book of any adopted child or pe.son depend-j ant upon the father; and adding all together, give Ihe job to the one with l,he greater number, thus glvine the man with many dependants, a better chance against a bachelor or man with a small family, in this way you not only encourage the children to attend sclvpol and pass their grades but It is the direct interest of the parents to encourage the children to study and be regular viii attendance. 2nd-The Parish vote; As soon as the child reaches the age of \i and loses his or her family vote, they should be entitled to the vote for the Parish or smallest Community (;oun->:11, and so begin their education In cttiaensbip. This would apply to ev-erj- ijidlvldual not mentally deficient 'or illiterate. 3rd-The District vote including School Board: As the v'oter reaches the age of 21, he should be entitled to the District vote, if he has passVi a higher standard-say Grade V, and in possessed .'Of a definite number of annuities-say 50? 4th--The ProviacteJ.Tote is tbo next Klep.
