Leclnre on New Zealand.
An appreciative audience- assembled Fri
day night at tho First Christian church
to hoar a stereopticon lecture on "Social
and Political Customs of New Zealand"
given by( Rev. William J. Hastlo Under
the auspices of tho Equal Franchise
league. Mr. Hastlo paid high tribute to
tho practical humanity of governmental
affairs In New Zealand, lie told of tho
conservation of human forces, of an eight
hour labor law enforced, of municipal
control of public utilities and how the
natural resources of the soil are not mo
nopolized. Mr. Hastlo Is an ardent advocate of
woman suffrage, and he spoke highly of
the Influence of New Zealand women in
public affairs. Equal suffrage has ex
isted twenty years In New Zealand, and
Is said by priest and laymen to have ex
erted a refining Influence on the home
and public life there.
Rev. William A. Pollock, pastor of the
United Presbyterian church, said that he
favors equal suffrage; he believes his
mother, his wife and other good women
equally competent, and as much or more
entitled to a voice in tho public welfare
as the masses of untrained men voters
now allowed, even urged to express them
selves at tho polls. H. F. Bennett and
tho choir provided suitable music. The

Ono very curious package, from which
the address had boen lost was an nlmum-

Tiio method of locating tho owners of
theso artlcloa Is little leas interesting
than the articles themselves. On regular
dates each nlxy station throughout tho
country makes a list of theso articles
received by them and the list Is published
and sent to all of tho postal Inspectors,
Complaints of articles lest In tho mall

postmaster who receives such a com'
plaint reports it to his district inspector,
who has ail of these lists, and he refers
to the list of tho territory through
which tho article would havo traveled In
going to its destination. Most of tho arti
cles aro thus returned either to tho sender
or to the addresses. That Is all except

the articles are at once forwarded to tho
person who Bent or was to receive tho

dollvered overy year without being placed
on the Inspector's lists at all. On the
