(ESTABLISHED 1883.)

For the right moment you must wait, as Fabius did, most patiently, when warring against Hannibal, though many censured his delays; but when the time comes you

must strike hard, as Fabius did, or your waiting will be in vain, and fruitless."

The FABIAN SOCIETY consists of Socialists.

It therefore aims at the reorganisation of Society by the emancipation of Land and industrial Capital from individual and class ownership, and the vesting of them in the community for the general benefit. In this way only can the natural and acquired advantages of the country be equitably shared by the whole people.

The Society accordingly works for the extinction of private property in land and of the consequent individual appropriation, in the form of Rent, of the price paid for permission to use the earth, as well as for the advantages of superior soils and sites.

The Society, further, works for the transfer to the community of the administration of such industrial Capital as can be managed socially. For, owing to the monopoly of the means of production in the past, industrial inventions and the transformation of surplus income into Capital have mainly enriched the proprietary class, the worker being now dependent on that class for leave to earn a living

If these measures be carried out, without compensation (though not without such relief to expropriated individuals as may seem fit to the community), Rent and Interest will be added to the reward of labor, the idle class now living on the labor of others will necessarily disappear, and practical equality of opportunity will be maintained by the spontaneous action of economic forces with much less interference with personal liberty than the present system entails.

For the attainment of these ends the Fabian Society looks to the spread of Socialist opinions, and the social and political changes consequent thereon, It seeks to promote these by the general dissemination of knowledge as to the relation between the individual and Society in its economic, ethical, and political aspects.

Facts for Londoners.

THE Socialist Programme of immediately practicable reforms for Programme for the Kingdom. The mighty "province covered with houses," which we know as London, does but sum up, and present in aggravated form, the social problems everywhere awaiting solution. If London's million wage earners are oppressed by the abstraction of rent and interest from the produce of their toil--an inevitable result of private appropriation of the land and other instruments of wealth production necessary for their existence — their oppression is but typical of that of the workers elsewhere, and can be put an end to only in common with that of the rural and provincial workers outside the Metropolitan area

Accordingly, most of the immediate reforms of greatest importance to London are, at the same time, matters of national concern To reach the common end---the emancipation of land and industrial capital from individual or class ownership, and the vesting of them in the community for the general benefit--reformers in all parts of the kingdom must push forward together along a common path, The fiscal burdens of the London workers can be relieved only through a thorough REFORM OF NATIONAL TAXATION, by which Customs, Excise and other imposts falling upon the worker or consumer will be superseded by a gradual recovery of the entire Rent and Interest of the country for public purposes by means of an INCREASED LAND. Tax, especially on urban properties; a GRADUATED ANC DIFFERENTIATED INCOME TAX; and DEATH DUTIES, INCREASED, EQUALISED, CONSOLIDATED, and GRADUATED. The sweating system, and other forms of industrial oppression suffered by the poorer London worker, can be alleviated by a wide ExTENSION OF THE FACTORY AND WORKSHOP Acts, with an increase in the number of inspectors, and the further gradual reduction, by law, of the maximum hours of labor. The harsh treatment of the destitute poor can be humanized by a general REFORM OF THE POOR LAW AND ITS ADMINISTKATION so as to provide more satisfactorily than at present for the children, the aged, and the temporarily unemployed. The political helplessness of the London citizen can be remedied by ADULT SUFFRAGE, SHORT PARLIAMENTS, PAYMENT OF ELECTION EXPENSES AND OF ALL PULLIC REPRESENTATIVES, and EFFECTIVE CONTINUOUS REGISTRATION BY PUBLIC OFFICERS. In all these matters the Programme for London is identical with that for every other centre of population in the country.
