The C.L.C. class has started its second session, the book now being studied it "V alu, Price and Protit," by Marx. Sonio most interesting discussions have already taken place; and the interest shown i« reflected in the increased and more punctual attendance. It looks as if there will be a good winter chus. Anyone interested ss invited to the I.L.P. Rooms, Charlea-atrect, Sunday, 11 a.m. I.L. P. and Industrialism. I.L.P. members are asked to set an example to the friends who attend the meetings, by being more regular and punctual in coming to "public and branch meetings. In the absence of Mr. Walton Newbold, M.A., through illness, the Saturday address at the I.L.P. Rooms was given by Mr. S. Fisher, of Wattsville. The; speaker gave a short account cf the Workers' Movement from the Guilds to the present Industrial Unionism. Only so far as the workers' power had been strong enough, had Parliament permitted reforms to be made. Usually Parliament had been a reactionary in- stitution aiming at keeping the workers "in their proper places," and so the workers must develop their industrial power, to obtain a pro- per reflection of their opinions in the political field. The chief means of obtaining this industrial power and political reflection was by education. This education had to be along the lines of In- dustrial History, showing that the present system of society had not always existed, and need not always exist; and also in Political Economy, to enable the workers to understand the foundation of the present corrupt system and any reformed system which a revolution in thought would bring about. It would, perhaps., l have been better to have concentrated activities on obtaining industrial power through educa- tion, than to have given so much energy to ob- taining representation in Parliament. Real, live, working-class, political and social revolu- tionary representatives would be obtained only as a reflection of the educated, revolutionary Democracy. All working-class organizations should pay more attention to industrial and political power obtained by greater attention to a fundamental working-class education. Triumphs of Despised Man. On Sunday evening Mr. Skinner gave an ad- dress on "The Triumphs of the Despised Man. With many interesting illustrations, he showed how the most advanced thinkers were perse- cuted and despised in their own time; but now their ideals and visions were considered the best and most practical. He drew parallels with our own time and prophesised that the men and causes which were despised to-day, would to- morrow be most faonowrecL Organisers Wanted.
