Heretofore It has not unfre<|iicntly
happened (hilt comrades ill trouble
sought the advice of Hie editor of
this paper. Hut. your editor la not a
lawyer, nor him ho the tlino to devote
to such matters. So from now on our
readers are Invited to address all
questions Involving points of law to

Stokes Hldg., 1616 1-2 Hewitt Aye.,
Q.—Kindly give your legal opinion
upon the following question, through
the Washington Socialist: A person
enters upon land, occupies, uses, and
Improves the same, by clearing the
land and fencing It, and has had un
disputed and sole possession for
twenty years last past. Is he entitled
to hold and claim ownership by the
law of adverse possession as laid
down by the rulings of the courts of
the state of Washington?—D. A. C.
A. —Yes; provided the party has
held the land under a claim of right,
or color of title: and provided further
that It Isn't government or public
land. The statute did require posses
sion for twenty years, but has been re
duced to ten.

Local Puyallup Publishes Most Valu
able Pamphlet—"Scientific So
cialism Study Course."
Ono of the most valuable ten-cent
pamphlets that has ever come to the
editorial desk of The Washington So
cialist is a ten-cent pamphlet—no, let
us correct that, a pamphlet for tin
cents, for the Uttls book Is worth at
least ten dollars to any study-club—
published by Local Puyallup.
In Puyallup they have, a real Red
local. And Local Puyallup has a
membership that not only does things,
jbut does them UNDKRSTANDINGLY.
After reading their ■'Scientific Social
ism Study Course," it will be easy to
understand why Local Puyallup al
ways stands on scientific ground when
voting on referendums or party offi
The first subject taken up is "A
Synopsis of Scientific Socialism," in
which are reviewed, in question and
answers form, the fundamental prin-
ciples of Marxian Socialism. The an
swers are all brief, clear, and con
The second section deals with "The
Law of Economic Determinism," and
treats simply and soundly all the
; topics fundamental to "The Material-
, istic Conception of History."
A third division deals with "Sur
plus Value, or Unpaid Labor," and
makes clear some of the least under
stood principles of Socialist political
Then comes the very vital question
of "The Class Struggle," most ably and
plainly explained and illustrated.
With each section is given a list of
books necessary to a fuller compre
hension of the fundamental principles
of Socialism, and it would be hard to
think out a bibliography of equal com
prehensiveness chosen with greater

Doctor Brown presented.
Tin1 Investigation was conducted
much in iiic manner of a court; Doc
tor Brown utlni as attorney for the
dual organization, the regulars being
represented by Comrades Bostrotn,
Wolls, Sadler ami the writer. Doctor
Brown'i tactics In presenting the Bldn
of tin' dual organisation, were just
about as rotten as worn the tactics he
and his "constructive" friends used
when they worn struggling to get con
trol of the regular organization, or the
tactics the dual organization has used

'I'lie incidents that led to the ex
elusion of Brown, Win! in. Hone, ii ,il
for party treason were thrust into the
background. Hours and hours were
lined in dealing with the petty Inci
dents of the guam] in Seattle In
general terms, hen Is what Brown
sought to prove:
Wh.it Brown Sought to Prove.
First, that tiie regular organisation
Wished to drive all doctors, lawyers
ami business men nut of the party.
Evidence : The fact that Hone, Will
sor, Coatea ami himself wan ox
pelled. The ruyallup riKolution, the
Wells resolution, etc.
Second, that the regular organiza
tion was under the Influence of the
I \V. W. and favored direct action and
Evidence: Phrases taken from
some speaker's address, or lentenoei
from some comrade's writings. Com
rade;; Allcr and Bottroro were cited
as the principal offenders, with Barth
and Boomer close seconds.
Third, that the regular organization
was incompetent, and that the people
distrusted it, and its officials.
Kvldence: The large vote the dual
organization's candidates received In
the recent elections in Seattle and
Tacoma. The falling off of the regular
organization's membership during the
last eighteen months from six thou
sand to four thousand.
Fourth, that the dual organization
was in harmony with tho national or
ganization, while the regular were not.
Evidence, that we "sassed" Berger;
also that we voted against the recall
of Haywood. That the dual organiza
tion was in harmony with the national
party, was proven by a constant itera
tion and reiteration of the declaration
that it was.
Assertions Offered in Lieu of Facts.
There you are. That is all of it.
The unsocialistic conduct of using
stickers to defeat regular nominees;
of going into the capitalist courts and
having regularly nominated candi
dates stricken from the ballot; the
use of the capitalist press to destroy
the good name of comrades, and final
ly the formation of a dual organiza
tion, were glossed over and justified
by Dr. Brown by the general charges
above enumerated, and I suppose he
will contend, proven.
Personally, I have not one spark of
ill feeling toward any one of the dual
organization with two exceptions, who
testified at the hearing, not even
Brown or Bone. In fact, during the
ten days the hearing lasted, I became
acquainted with many members of the
rank and file of the dual organization.
whom I would be glad to count as
members of the regular organization,
but there are two persons that stand
convicted, in my mind, of being in
conceivably small and contemptible.
I refer to Mrs. Cory of Sedro-Wooley
land George Davis of Bismarck. Mrs.
Cory, laboring under the impression
that the regulars were to be the losers
in the investigation, and no doubt, de
siring to make herself solid with the
victorious "constructives," at one of
the hearings, testified that Frans Bos
trom had refused to pay $56 due her
for services rendered as a regular or
gan i/er of the party. The falseness of
this charge is so plain that the charge
■ •ins like an utterance of an insane
person. What made her act look so
mean, was her very evident desire to
curry favor with the mpposed-to-be
"Useless to Object."
Oeorge. Davis reminds me of Judas
Tsrariot and Benedict Arnold. He re
pudiated his own acts as an executive
|committepman in his efforts to dis-1
credit the regular organization, on the
childish ploa that, the other members
of the 8. F. C. had "fooled" him, or
thai "they were in the majority and it
was useless for me to object."
George! fieorge! What kind of a I
spineless jellyfish were you, that you '
did not dare to lift your voirp in pro- j
tost against the acts of the S. E. C. j
which did not mpet your approval.
George, you even voted in favor of
those acts, and now, after two years
you come out with such bunk as this.

Lessons of the Investigation.
First, no lasting victory can be
gained when the gaining of that vic
tory is attempted by underhanded
Second, we Reds must never make
the mistakes of Dr. Brown and the
other "constructive" leaders of the
dual organization; that is, of assuming
that attacks on the personal character
of individuals will aid our cause.
Third, the Idea that the "construc
|tives" have a superior brand of intel
jlect from that of the workers is all a
mistake. They are mere unscrupul
ous. That's all.
