CHRIST CHURCH LITERARY SOCIETY. A well-attended meeting of the above society was held on Monday night, presided over by the Vicar, when Mr W. Inglefield read a paper on Socialism." Mr Inglefield dealt with his subject in an exhaustive manner, and touched upon the sorrow and suffering which was brought about by unemployment. During an observation on Protection, the speaker said that every country had its poor, and its unemployed, therefore why try to take each other's trade when no country had too much. He also spoke on the evils of competition, on infantile mortality, which was greatly due to poverty. and asked why eight millions of people should go hungry in a rich country like ours. From Mr Inglefield's remarks it was gathered that the unequal distribution of wealth was the crux of the whole matter. He strongly objected to royalties, and condemned the present system which enabled some men to draw thousands of pounds from localities to the support of which they did not contri- bute anything. The speaker went on to say that there was a great deal of misconception as to Socialism. As Socialists one of their great aims was that there should be a fair chance for every man -the uplifting, not the dragging down of Society. Socialism was not Godless as some people tried to make out, for it numbered amohg its supporters many men of high standing in the church and elsewhere. A short discussion followed, at the conclu- sion of which Mr Inglefield was heartily thanked for his able paper.
