WORK FOR THE UNEMPLOYED.

WORK FOR THE UNEMPLOYED. the E(litoi- ol' ihe Prestatytt Weekly." SIR,-I felt sure we could see with a "single eye if only sweet reasonableness held the balance. Just a word or two more on the points in your foot-note, please. I am certain more help might be given to those seeking work if only we grasp the necessity of honesty of purpose," and the responsibility of each person for a share of that which is happening arbund him. But pray do not put the onus upon the State! It is too much like putting a blind man to teach reading- possible, but not reasonable. Let the Poor Law administration be a per- petual warning. Conceived in love, and borne in charity by the electorate who too often can ill-afford to pay, these laws have been turned by the plausible politicians and the-wily self-seeker into offices for party- supporters and hangers-on, until the "adminis- trators are in many cases drawing their £ 1000 a year for what ?—giving the poor and needy a foretaste of hell Strong words, you will say, sir. Yes, they are, and need to be when we realize that J640 out of every JSlOO we pay for the poor relief is pocketed," and most of the other £60 is wasted. And these figures are supplied to us-if we could go through the items it might be even worse than that. The question before us is simply each helping the other." The people who are making this impossible are the Unsocial Christians and the Un-Christian Socialists. The latter we are not afraid of—but the un- social Christians are a plague in the land- inveterate liars and cunning schemers, setting one church against another and luxuriating in the froth of tumult. When the people clear out this scum and fraternize together in loving co-operation, we shall have a taste of the early Christian spirit, and want and misery will have a brief time to stay. Yours, &c., ".DIOGENES."
