Socialist Meeting.
The electors of Keremeos and
surrounding district turned out en
masse, as is their custom when
there is a political meeting on, to
hear the addresses of Chas Bunting,
socialist candidate for Vale-Cariboo,
and his right bower, Parker Williams, M.P. P., for New Castle, in
the town hall on Monday evening.

whether we will or not, socialism is
the next step in the evolution of the
human race and the only plausible
solution for the dire times, which he
claims, already threaten the white
race and will soon overwhelm it.
Much that he advocates is good
politics and rational doctrine, but a
good deal more is incendiary in
nature and calculated to appeal to
the discontent and dis-satisfaction
in man's nature rather than to the
higher intelligence.

could not resist the temptation when
ever opportunity afforded, of taking
a rise out of Joe, who is his inferior

The rather primitive team which
the latter drives appears to have
drawn more ridicule from our highland friend than the circumstances
would warrant and as 'he same pair

"What action, in your opinion,
would be taken by Japan if the Canadian government should enact absolute e\Jusion against the Japanese?" ,vas asked of Mr. R. Y;is-
hiro, a rear-admiral in the Japanese
navy and recently an attache ol the
Japanese Embassy at Berlin, while
in Vancouver last week. "Would
he [apaneae government retaliate
: nil would Japanese merchants enforce a boycott against Canadian
;,ooils .' "
"Neither one nor the other" said
Mr. Vashiro. "The Japan See gov-
emment would not retaliate and the
onlv loss ol trade to Canada would
be the rice and oth *r foodstuffs,
clothing, etc., that would be forwarded to the additional Japanese
who would be here were there IM
harriers. This slight loss, ol course,
would hardly he noticeable.
".Apart from this there would   be
no effect. The Japanese govern*
ment would endeavor to continue
its friendly relationship with British
Columbia, just as Japan is at the
preaent time endeavoring to main-
lain a friendly basis with all powers.
"Let me also emphatically state
that Japan has no territorial ambitions, despite the reporta concern*
ing Manchuria and the Phitlipines
and the even more nonsensical    war
bet areetf Japan and the l'nited Satee.
Japan desires to grow industrially
and commercially and in order to
achieve thia ambition her govern*
ment can harbor no thought at wai
with any nation.

Attorney General Assaulted.
Winnipeg, Oct. 2K. An aftermath of the bitter election contest
in this city took place this afternoon
on Main street, when Kdniund L.
Howell, a son of chief justice Howell, attacked Hon. Colin H. Campbell, attorney general for Manitoba.
The matter arose from a conversation over the telephone between
Howell and the attorney general
late on Sunday night, when the
former demanded admittance to bail

and asked him to apologize. Mr.

Notes and Comments.
William Sloan, liberal nominee
for Comox-Atlin, has been elected
by acclamation. It is announced
that the portfolio of inland revenue
and mines, rendered vacant by the
defeat of Hon. Wm. Templeman, is
to be given to Mr. Sloan. Just
how it can be handed to Duncan
Ross, Smith Curtis and Ralph
Smith at the same time will prove
an interesting stunt in legerdemain.
There is one fact that should   not
be lost sight of in   connection   with
the   election   in   Vale-Cariboo  and I cies have given   them,   the   liberals
that during the past four years
socialism has gained new adherents
in Yale-Cariboo, but it must be remembered that the population has
increased vastly and with it the
number of names on the voters'
lists. In 1904 Mr. Mills, the socialist candidate did not poll half enough
votes to save his deposit and it is
extremely doubtful if the socialist
gains since then have any more
than kept pace with the increase in
population. If Candidate Hunting
saves his deposit he will surprise
most people; that he should be
elected is beyond the shadow of a
possibility. The contest lies between Martin Burrell and Duncan
Ross and those inclined to be swayed by the arguments of Parker Williams or his principal into casting a
vole for the socialist party should
remember that by so doing they
will but help to that extent the man
they are most anxious to see left at

who is certain to meet with overwhelming defeat, is difficult to see.

Keremeos Poll.
Apparently without giving the
matter much consideration, arrangements have heen partially made for
the holding of the Keremeos poll at
the school house on Thursday next.
As we understand it, however, the
arrangements are not definite, and
as a suitable place in town can be
secured, which would appear to be
more convenient and would obviate
the necessity of interrupting the
school work, we would suggest that
the matter he re-considered, and if
possible the polling held here.

The Fernie Ledger announces
that two social evils which exist in
the new town will receive attention
in its columns until such time as
they are remedied. They are tinhorn gamblers and "women of the
restricted district," who persist in
parading the town at all hours. Public sentiment should render any
town too hot for the former and
plainly intimate to the other, that,
if their unwholesome presence is to
be tolerated, they must keep in
their own back yard.
