Sir,—Atlraeted   liy  a   leaderette   in
your issue of  the. bill, I  was indiivod
to lireak  a      ciisiom,   that of    never
.-readijiijr aiivthinjji fi/Diii   the   edition*!
chair     ol your paper.       So,  with s
K-cUlessHess > worthy 'of a  better    ve
.ward, I waded  l!uou»h the said lead
erctte in search-'of an idea, presented
in Uu- siiiiiiiiiiifr up of Socialism,  vet
in an article  of  llial headinjj I . iii ill
the word mentioned  twice only,    :m
not the    slightest     reference  to    th-
philosophy   of the   uiovuii?nl    for or
against.    1 shall liken your leadeicUt
nir.s the   ' apjiles     of  tlte'dead sen'
shore of much    promise      lo tlrj ew
but ashes  to- the  ta.ite.
litu'on says,      "A mixture of ial--.:
*- hood is liki  alloy "in yolrt and silver
whiih may   make     the     metal   wor
belter, but  it dibaseth it,"   It i.s fo
this very reason  that  I  be<; your in
iluljieniv.llie' mixUne of   falsehood   i '
your leadeiette     may make   il     wot'
so lniK.li   better, that  many  shall    1,*
. deceived as to tlie authentic farts   ol
the   day's proceedings. -
Bui before going further, I shall ask
you to satisfy    me      on     one   point..
Which of these two conjectures in cor
reel:   Were ^ you present      at"   tltos*
meetings,   and dirt     you  deliberalel'

price of admission,   thus   receiving
false  impression of tlie proce'eHings.
Now, let me inform you that Hawthornthwaite did nol limit his -'loud

who, mark ,you,'was nol tie ih*!*:-
man cjf the day's proceedings, but
acted chairman foi a short while
during the absence of Mr. "liggs,. i,«d
furthermore, Mr. Y.. Sherman was
chairman during this particular part
of the proceedings, ' and "that Mr.

Fred  Waters., superintendent  of   the

at Edmonton for use  in  the    woods.

Mr;IIawtlioinwiiite's ine-eliug in lhe
"Miners' Hull was not the. same i.v-
eiiing, but llie'next night. The greater part of his speech was not a bitter harangue against all forms cf
wealth (why, he extoled the trti-its),
but against the manner iu whi-.-li
'iiiosl ol the wealth produced is di-
varied Irom its rightful owners. Nor
did he propose to confiscate' it when
his'parly came into power, for he
inaiiiLained that until the U. S. took
the lead, his party were powerless'to
proclaim Socialism. Ne did not picture .Socialism in nil its" beauty, lie
painted capitalism, not in all* its horror (that were impossible to any living man), but in some phrases oi its
horror, San' Salaift,, having _ 'iiteu
,10 an end of these fabrications, ^ let
uie beg ol thee, forget, not this shining example of dutiful emulation of
lhy worshipful sainlship. ; .
Vou say that no sane man . vou'd
ever expect to see Socialism. "»iv, I
trust you will not allow the lbsurd
assumption ' thai only the exj>e-,..i;

he ever came back with his "lool-"
