     We are requested to insert the following notice :

     "The East-end branches of the Socialist League and our foreign comrades at the Princess Square and Berners Street clubs, have just formed themselves into The East-end Socialist Propagandist Committee, and are commencing a systematic distribution from house to house in all the streets, lanes, etc., of leaflets, pamphlets (which are left in the houses of one street one week, then called for and taken to another street the following week) and other literature, as well as posting up leaflets, bills, etc,, on the walls, hoardings, Lamp-posts, church notice-boards, and other similarly available places. They have besides commenced holding, regular open-air meetings at about twenty places in the district. Contributions, however small, which will be entirely devoted to the purchase of literature for distribution, will be gladly received by the treasurer, J. Lane, 38 Ainslie St., E., and any London comrades who can help personally in the work, should communicate with the secretary, F. Charles, at the same address, and in view of the threatened anti-foreigner agitation they specially appeal for the assistance of all the foreign comrades in London to show they are not the enemies of the English worker, but comrades working with them for the emancipation of labor the world over."
