To the Editor. Sir,—Your correspondent, B. S. T., amongst other thing, outlines a scheme I by which every citizen of military age and physique would serve so much time per year in military training. I would like his definition of "A Citizen." If he means by every citizen, landlords, property-holders, capitalists, and the ) vast army of people who live on their means and who all have a real stake in the country and stand to lose by an invasion, then I say, let, this, class and this class alone do the fighting to defend their interests. It would only be poetic. j justice to compel the people who original- ly held land by force of arms to now do our fighting for us. If on the other hand he takes citizen to mean the wasters, out of works, men without votes, men who knew that, so soon as they cannot work they will be scrapped, those without any stake in the country who are allowed to starve but not always allowed to work to I enable them to live, I say let this class fight for their country when they have got a bit of country to fight for. The average workingman has too much sense to risk being shot at for about 6d. per day. In conclusion, the people who do most of the agitating for conscription are aliens, nationalised foreigners and Hebrew financiers.—Yours, etc., PIEID PIPER.
