Socialism. In the London Express of Thursday last appeared a scathing article on Socialism. It ran:—"The sponger, the cadger, the good- for-nothing, the hanger-on, the man who is struck with palay at the bare thought of an honest day's work-that is socialism. Thrift, to these people, is a horrid thing. Do you know what Mr John Barns said about thrift ? Speaking at the Trade Union Congress in Norwich on September 6, 1894, he stated: Thrift was invented by capitalistic rogues to beguile fools to destruction and to deprive honest fools of their diet and their proper comfort." There you have the first text in the cadger's bible, and it is the text upon which Socialist bids to cupidity are being preached every day. Mr. Burns said this years ago. He has since succeeded in securing hia proper com- fort," but others who have not been so fortun- are are passionately declaiming against thrift. Why be an honest fool and work and save, when by glorious means of Socialism you may live at the expense of the honest fools who have worked and saved ? Land and industrial capital are to be "emancipated" _from individual and class ownership and vested in the community for the general benefit." This is to be done "without compensation," so that rent and interest may be added to the reward of labour.
