Itis said that P. A. Heinze has^one of the largest and most ex^^pensive libraries in the state,^which contains all ^^f the leading^works on Socialism. \o wonder^that the Hrooklvn hoy has been^enabled to combat single handed^with the greatest money power on^earth. It gDCl to prove what a^knowledge of scientific economics^will do for a person, ami if for an^individual, then for the whole^world; but perhaps there is aK^^^another moral in hil method, for^if the Amalgamated Copper com^^pany sues him for a few more mil^^lions and should get judgment,^the defendant would be prepared^to preach the gospel of social^economy to honest effect and^thereby properly defeat the graft^^ers after all.

Alarge delegation of Socialists^left ButtC Sunday evening to at^^tend the labor convention which^met at Hamilton. Mont.. Mondav.^A tig. 22.
Thereferendum r*^ti for the^amendment of the Socialist state^constitution was taken in Butte^Locals Monday evening, Aug. 15.
Thehalf-day wage assessment,^as proposed by the state conven^^tion, was talked over in the ButtC^locals last Monday night, but was^btid ^ii the table and will be taken^up for further consideration at the^Itexl regular meeting.
TheSocialist club has engaged^Mrs. Ida Crouch-Hazlett to speak^on the streets of ButtC and it is^expected that she will begin the^work on the first evening in Sep^^tember.
Quitea heated discussion tool;^place at the last meeting in Butte^Local No. 1 on the intellectualist^and the common labor question.^As a matter of course it was^looked upon as propaganda work,^since no one would be so foolish^as to take offense at what the^comrades had to say, for all are^endeavoring to aid the advance^^ment of Socialism as far as their^time and earnest efforts will per^^mit ; however, it is time that the^middle class, the professionals,^etc., awaken to the fact that they^are wage slaves as well as the^Commonest working man and it is^aLo high time that the mechanic^and all laborers recognize the^same great fact and no longer try^to draw a line between class la^^bor. The world may advance to^the sense of univ ersal brotherhood^sufficiently to get along without^some of the professionals, the^lawyer, for instance, and the real^estate agents, but the teacher, the^seientist, the chemist, the book^^keeper, the physician, the dentist,^are hard-working people, and will^always be needed by the masses.^Suffering humanity will forever^continue to require their services^just as much as those of the com^^mon laborer and the mechanic.
Amoral for the unconscious^conservative to ponder: Cood,^wholesome criticism is a real ben^^efit to an honest-thinking person,^but it is unwise to depreciate that^which you possess, even though^it may seem to be of little value.

amass convention of the So^^cialist party ^jf Lewis and Clarke^county is hereby called to meet^Saturday, August 27th, 8 p. m., at^Soeialist headquarters, No. 22^PeHl av enue, Helena, for the pur^^pose of nominating a county^ticket, and for the transaction of^such other business as may prop^^erly come before the convention.
Allparty members in good^standing are eligible to participate^in said convention.

AnotherImportant Amendment Needed
Thereferendum has gone out^to the locals of the state for their^\ litis on the new amendments to^the constitution submitted by the^state committee. The new^ft mend mentl are very important^and are all needed, but there is^one that has been left out and it^should be put in by all means.^I hat is an amendment providing^for the raising of a fund to pay the^rilro.nl and hotel expenses of dele^^gates to state conventions. The^Montana News has published ar^^ticles before on this matter, and^we urge again upon the member^^ship the importance of an amend^^ment of this kind. No convention^of the Socialists should be made^up of a class who can ^afford^ to
goon their own expense account.^You cannot keep a movement on^the right road by following any^of the old party tactics, and this^is one of their strongholds. When^there is a fund provided and set^aside, as there should be, then^each local can select their best^convention material, and their^poverty will be no excuse for not^going.
Thisis the keynote to holding^a class conscious movement with^^in the proper bounds, and the^Newi urges upon the membership^the trreat importance of this sug^^gest, ,| amendment providing for a^fund that will liquidate all ex-1^pensei of delegates to state con^^ventions.
