The Third Congress of the R.S.D.L.P.
April 12 (25)-April 27 (May 10), 1905

A Remark During the Discussion of the Resolutionon the Relations
Between Workers and Intellectuals within the Social-Democratic Organisations

V. I. Lenin

April 22 (May 5) I could hardly keep my seat when it was said here that there are no workers fit to sit on the committees. The question is being dragged out; obviously there is something the matter with the Party. Workers must be given places on the committees. Oddly enough, there are only three publicists at the Congress, the others being committee-men; it appears however that the publicists are for placing the workers, whereas the committee-men for some reason are quite wrought up over it.

The statements by Comrades Golubin[1] and Mikhailov are highly valuable.

[1] Golubin—the Bolshevik P. A. Japaridze, a delegate to the Third Congress of the R.S.D.L.P.
