Find what is conserved in space where an infinite cylindrical helix is homogeneous.

It comes from Mechanics by Landau and Lif****z, page 21, solution on page 22. Here is a google books link to it

(the solution is at the top of the linked page 22, part h)

I don't see why partial L/partial phi is dM_z/dt..
