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 comrade Peter Hußby, Itoom 209 Stokes Hldg., 1616 1-2 Hewitt Aye., Everett, Wash. 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. THE BEST EVER! 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 cials. 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 clusive. 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 economy. 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 discretion. "The Washington Socialist" can 1 make no better use of its very limited space than to urge upon all locals in the state of Washington to order a plenteous supply of these little pamph lets. Ord< rs may be sent to Local Puy allup, or to C. W. Garrott, Charli'siuM, Wash., or to Charles H. Kerr & Co., 118 W. Kin/.ie St., Chicago, 111. If we are not mistaken, our state secretary, also, has the pamphlets on sail-. MILITIA ORDERED OUT. Will Terrorize Strike Zone. On April T.\ (Thurgdaj 1 the entire enlistment of the Colorado state mili tia, including all branches of the ser vice, left Denver to aßfilsi the coal barons in crushing (lie workers of the Trinidad strike zone. Colonel Lee stated a dozen militia men who had boarded the train with the remainder of his command, lefi it, giving as a reason failure lo re ceive back pay and personal consider ation!, which they refused to disclose.

C. INVESTIGATION. Well, It'i nil over l-"«>r ten dayi Comradei Uotloy and Klchardson, with it patience beyond comparison, nut iimi listened to lies, vituperation .■mil tnlsoonstruotlon or (acts, all of which were pound Into their ears with tin' Intent and purpose of proving iimi the members or the regular orgnlsa don, indlviiiuiiiiy and collectively, were and ntiii are, Imposslblllsts, <n reel aotlonlsts, sabotagers; In fast, wi> iiiii mil limvc one redeeming fes lure 111xin t us, from the polnl nf \ lew 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 slnco It has been in exiitenoe '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 HabotaKO. 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 winners. "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. WAR! WAR! illy 0. D, Kline.) Wsir! War! What for? For the satisfaction of tii" blood thirsty worshippers of Plutus, the, blind Ood of money, for the conquest of nations, thai America might become the empire of the two American oontlnents, And the Islands of the deep, For th( de structlon of millions of homes, and the subjugation of the producers, that the homes might be devoured by the money fiends, and the producers made miserable slaves. Ah! proud Amerloa, Yon in abondonlng your goddess of liberty have ohosen Mhtb as a guide lie Ih guiding you hk he guided Rome, Whose rose in the bloom of youthful beauty, only to die on the stem of a horribly corrupt civilisation. you have kowii the dragon's teetn and you shall reap its fruit.

Fraternity, comrades! Hi ill nut Mexico, but hurrah for Colo rado! At the Tacoma convention, you thought you Were landing with the winning side, and now your small soul is consumed with hato because you I made a poor guess. George, your tac tics have been as rotten as your con ception of the Socialist philosophy. Will, what did the whole investi gation amount to? Well, I deduct these lessons. Lessons of the Investigation. First, no lasting victory can be gained when the gaining of that vic tory is attempted by underhanded methods. 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. W. 11. STACKHOUSE.
