The Party platforms became so filled with refortnist demands calculated to up to profun sionals and small property owners. the Progru aive Party adopted several of them in 1912. For the moment this did not effectually modify the Socialist vote; but when. four years later, under the threat of war, the Wilson Democrats adopted the same tactics, it roved fatal to the Party the Pruidential vote fel almost one half.
The St. Louis War Resolution, forced upon the Party othcinldom by the rank and file, gave promise ofsnewspiritintheSochlinmovunmnhorn of the shock of war. But how the Party oficinll and ofliceholden violated or apologised for the St.

Kate Richards Hnr The 4th English Branch, formqu owned and controlled by ex Assembly man Karlin, much to the astonishment of the late Amblyman, went left II its regular meeting, Friday, May 30. Dismayed at the course of events, Karlin becatne very melted, calling the chainmn. pins of cheese and threatening to beat him up. Finding that this line of action made no impression on the Death!! ship. he launched into an impassioned plea, citing hislongye nofmenhushipinthel urtyan have trad.
Central Branch of Lou! Patmon, the largest branch in the city, has joined the Left Wing.
Local Paterson was not given any bullot! for til referendum vote for National Executive Committee members.
The Telescopq understand that Morris Hillquit says that it is not the Foreign Federations who are to blame, but the economic org niutions of the oreign workers. Our left Wing Secret Service informs us that at the last meeting of the Local New York Executive Committee a motion to suspend the publication of The Socialist was only lost by a small margin. Apparently there are some Right Winger: who are occasionally visited with gleam of sanity.
The first editorial in the last issue of The Socialist begins: The Socialist justified a. nut.
ence. ls this a reply to the motion to suspend publication?
e e e We notice that Hillquit billet dots: to the left Wing has undergone a change in title since it uppeared in The Call. The Socialist is now night; it for sale under the somewhat lus ambitious title The Immediate lssue. Will someone tell us what immediate issue Hillquit discovered. Bill Feigcnhamn writes in The soc wan Nu tionalism Great Danga. He says: Speaking as a Russian sympathiner. Nationalism is put danger, but aympathizing with nationalism is of course quite alright! Now we would say, Spding as a sympathiur with the Russian Revolution. but than saying whatis meant is a me tail. r.
Billhasdiscovaedthatwhstiswrongwithflse Socialist movement is inverted patriotism, whatever thnt means. However, in future we would advise all Right Winger: to seednttheix pariah right side up.
We air xpuch obliged1 to Rober tISpmtiirhiar his approva our line iterary Sty e. quite relieves our mind, as we were afraid he might not like our little efforts. But now that we are K, why does not he give Bill Feigenbnnn a few lessons inhowtossy whathemosnsifhemesnslnything.
According to The Socialist, Lenin is of the opinion that Samuel Compete is a Soddist. ll this is true, then Lenin must have got hiLin iprssions from reading The Call, or perhaps from perusing one of Hillquit spend es.
