J.  H.   Hawthornthwaite   Propounds Socialism — J.  M
Kellie     Defends    Himself
Against Attacks.
A fair percentage of citizens turned
out on Wednesday night to hear J. H
Hawtliorntbwai'e'B, the socialist leader, address ou tlie issues of the day
and the great problem of Socialism,
at the opera house.
\V. W. Lefeaux took the chair and
iu a lew words reviewed the past history of feudalism and chattel slavery,
and why the present wage Blsve system, as the socialists call it, evolved.
Chattel slavery was the result ol war
since tbe old time masters found it
more profitable to make their enemies,
captured in war, work for them than
to kill them. Mr. Lefeaux endeavored
to point out bow tbe slaves in tbe
early days were better off than the
wage slaves ol the present century.
He asked any political opponents to
come on to the platform and speak but
said that the socialists got but scant
courtesy at either liberal or conservative meetings in that direction.
Mr. Hawtbornthwaite said that the
reason politic 1 opponents were backward in coming onto the platform at
Socialist meetings was because they
knew nothing about socialism. He
denied that the report was true which
claimed that he hud been turned down
by the miners at Nanaimo but tbat be
bad been robbed of votes which Bhould
have been his. He showed how socialism had increased 100 p.c. and was
the great iesue o! the campaign, although liberals and conservatives refused to discuss tbe question. He
referred to the fact that Smith Curtis
had refused to meet him on the public
platform, and refuted Smith Curtis's
idea of capital and saved l.bor. He
said that the workers were robbed of
4-5 of tbe value of tbeir labor, and the
middlemen were tbe robbers. He
pointed out that il a worker bad saved
up bis wages thousands ol years ago
he would oot have anything like tbe
amount of cash tbat Bockfeller, for
instance, bad, wbo never saved up
anything. He referred to tbe wage
trick system and explained bow the
workers were robbed ol the greater
part of what they ptoduced, saying
tbat this would always go on while
capital owned the legal possession ot
the means ol production. The workers were not paid in full value for
their labor, and after they had receiv-
ceived their wages the rest of tbe
rest cl ihe wealth they produced went
as profit to the boss. He bitterly complained tbat the feudal system, chattel slavery und wage slavery today
were all the same; the workers were
afraid of tbe boas and were compelled
to submit in order to live and produce
what would never belong to tbem.
He pointed out that he had never
attacked religion, tried to pull down
the British ilag or overthrow tbe
British constitution, as he hsd been
accused of doi.ig, and cited tne case of
how he hid refused to take off bis hat
to Dunsmuir at the opening of the
parliament, as being similar to what
is done in the Hriiish House liefore
the speaker, the representative of
royalty. He reviewed the difference
between an autocracy such as Russia
and a limited monarchy such as England. He showed how be had been
called to order when trying to bring in
an impeachment against Dunsmuir
lor bringing in Oriental labor. He
allirmed thai socialism was here now
since necessities ol lile were being produced collectively iu mills and factories, and all that is now required is
socialist ownership.
He made a dramatic appeal for tho
starving thousands, the result of capital rule, and urged that the people
realize what it really meant. He reviewed the present political campaign
and referred to the statements ol the
liberals und conservatives, that the
socialiits hud done no good in the
House (or labor legislation, claiming
that Smith Curtis had tried to rob
bim ol tlie credit of putting through
many bills for tbe benefit of labor,
when he (Hawtbornthwaite) bad been
largely instrumental in putting thru'
these bills himself in spite of opposi-
t 1 ni Irom liberals and conservatives.
He explained that the "Coal Mining
Bill," 'Trades 1'nions Bill," Workmen's Compensation Act," and other
bills bad been his own work and
allirmed that Smith Curtis was mil)
hypOOritioal in his interests lor labor.
He pointed out that Smith Curtis had
never got a bill passed in the House,
and wss  always   bringiog in amend
ments, thereby getting the name ol
"amendicitis." Tbe speaker then went
into the Columbia A Western deal
and showed bow he bad been accused
of voting for land subsidies to tbe C.
IMI.. the explanation being that he
had objected from the first to millions
ul acres being given and voted with
the others that this Bhould be cut down
and beld out that he would have
stripped the company of everything to
which tin v were not legally entitled.
He attack I .1. M. Kellie at thiB point
as being pn rty to this scheme ol land
Mr. Kellie came up on the platform
and explained the nature of tbe Columbia it Western deal, claiming tbst
Hawthornthwaite had voted for tbe
subsidy whioh the C P.R. bad no right
to. He said that Hawthornthwaite
only pretended to look after the people's interests and had only quibbled
when he claimed that he didn't vote
for the subsidy.
Mr. Hawthornthwaite upheld that
Mr. Kellie bad not done his duty in
tbe House and could give no satisfactory explanation of bis action in the
matter, and contended that he had
never voted for a subsidy bill and
claimed that he would cut land grants
down as low as he oould, which was
more than bis liberal and conservative
friends could do.
Mr. Kellie said that Mr. Hawthornthwaite didn't carry out hia principles and still maintained that Hawtbornthwaite had voted for the C.P.R.
land subsidy.
The matter of the Kaien Island deal
was taken up, a lengthy argument
ensuing, both Mr Kellie and Mr.
Hawthornthwaite valiantly holding to
their own convictions.
Mr. Hawtbornthwaite claimel that
the socialists and a few liberals were
the only ones who voted against the
grant to the G. T. P. for lands and
went ou to say that other motions in
the interests of tbs working man and
settler were voted down by the combined forces of liberals and conservatives to gain their own ends. He
pointed out tbat be had gained many
concessions for farmers and had introduced measures protecting the workers
against increased taxation and that
neither liberals or conservatives bad
brought in any labor bills. These
patties, be claimed, were not working
lor reforms but did their best to make
the life ol the workingman a struggle
for existence. He urged that the people study tbe issues at stake, freedom
and capitalistic robbery.
Mr. Kellie strongly poiuted out tbat
be had introduced several measures
for the benefit of labor and said that
Mr. Hawtbornthwaite bad taken a
mean advantage ol him in bringing
him into the discussion of the C. &\V.
unawares, he not having time to collect bis facts aud data, but be said
that he would bring necessary evidence
on tbe 11 tli of Nov. wbicb would
force Hawthornthwaite to take back
bis accusations.
The latter replied that Mr. Kellie
should have known that tbe question
would come up, since it bad been
thrown at bim (Hawthornthwaite) by
Smith Curtis. In conclusion be urged
tbe electors to think of tbe great issue
and do their duty to themselves and
their freedom on Nov. 12th.
A collection was taken up and the
meeting terminated.

New Weighty Organization in

New York, Nov. i—One of tlie
weightiest organizations ever torn ed
in New York was established yesterday. It is tho Fat Men's Club of the
east side. There was not a man pret-
ent who weighed less than 300 pounds.
At the outset a lew slender persons
who weighed not more than 280

vote against anyone tipping the
scales at le-8 than 80U, becoming an

was held on Thursday night with
Mayor Lin.1 mark and Aldermen Woodland. Sawyer, and Lefeaux present.
Tbe bylaw called tbe Tax Levy Bylaw for 1908 was introduced, passing
its three readings and with tlie unanimous consent of the council.
Tbe question of hospital charges
and city patients was taken up, the
council feeling tli it the city should
receive more consideration at the
hands of the hospital in regard to
medical fees and attention for city
patients mid a resolution was passed
that the city clerk should communicate with the hospital board to the
effect tbat considering that the city
suppl.es the hospital with water and
light iree of charge ami also that the
city has exempted the hospital from
taxation, and bas supplied all material
for installation for light and power
and bus also agreed to wire the new
wing, when built, free of charge, the
city council does not expect in future
to be charged witb any fees for the
city's patients, either for medicines,
medical attention and hospital treat-
meet; and the city oouncil would like
to have a written assurance from the
board ol hospital dir. ctors, carrying
into effect the requests as outlined.
A resolution was p isted that during
the absence of the city medical health
officer Dr. E. H. S. McLean be appointed to tbat position.
Tbe city scales were discussed and
the need of the scales being iu a more
central position. The council deemed
it necessary that they should be pro-
protected from tbe weather aod in
charge of the police aud a resolution
was passed that tbe mayor and chairman ol the public works committee be

sidered both in political us well as
in civic relationships;. A man docs
not deserve to have a vote if he
will not ubo it rightly and an
amendment to the eleotion law
that would Btrike from the list the
names of all wiio do not go lo Ilic
polls and record their votes would
lie in the direction of having much
cleaner election?. The surest way
lo inlluence a voter is to pay him
ior staying away from the polls
ami wc venture to say that a
scrutiny of tbejjunpolled voters at
elections would reveal a list that
could lie suspected of being influenced by considerations other than
that of their duty as citizens. One
of the favorite arguments of those
who advocate personal registration
is that a man who does not take
sufficient interest in public mailers
to go In the trouble of registering,
does not deserve to have a vole- It
follows then, logically, thai after
being on tlie list, if he does not
exercise the right to vote, he should
be struck off the list for want of
interest, or what is worse, of having
been bought or unduly influenced
to  stay  away.    At   election   (Hills
conies tlie chance of every man lo
say what he wants and if he is
weak enough to sell his own mind,
there is little use in giving him the
privilege of a franchise to he used
by some one else for his own   ends.
The city council have at lust
carried out what is perhaps tiie
most important work of their administration during this term, uud
une which is t.i particular interest
to the citizen- in tlmt it affrcls
their pookcts, wbicli are in reality
the scats of nil interest. Th.'
Oouncil have been very dilatory
this year in coming tn a (lecis-nii :,s
to what tax rate w.il to required
for all expenses, and although this
delay has given them morn time to
get as near as possible to lie correct figure, yet on the other hand,
it only gives the taxpayers but
short notice in which to pay their
taxes. Wc do not propose to go
into the question just now as to
how the present administration
have acquitted themselves, or bow
they have carried out what they
promised they would   do  at ihe
commencement of their term.
Suffice it to say, however, tlmt the
public improvements curried out
this year, can speak for themselves
and tin- hui of something along
thut line has been accomplished for
the lirst time. The tux rate is
always a subject for discussion both
for and against whatever has been
fixed upon, and although our property has gone up in value it has
had the efiect of reducing taxes
considerably below those of last
year, although tlie present rate for
many reasons, sooner or later to be
discussed, is higher than it should
be. It should be the aim and object of every council tu prepare the
estimate und strike tlie tax rate as
early in the year as possible and
not let expenditures run on indefinitely till they arc pulled up with
a jerk to Iiud out that money is
going out faster than it is coining
in. We give tlie present council
credit fur nnl being guilt} uf the
usual wild expenditures in public
works that are not permanent, but
claim Unit they cuuld havo very
easily struck tin- tux   rale  earlier.
There never was n preacher, poit

that could please everybody. There
never was a profession of any sort
that could suit us all. Show us a

of many, perhaps more or less
cynical, has never half succeeded
in comforting the human race.
There is not a thing on earth or
anywhere else that meets the approval nf ell mankind. Then it
would he nonsense fur editors and
correspondents to fret when their
honest efforts fail to please a certain few, and it is these few who

One of the most interesting results of the recent election, sayB
the Calgary Herald, will he the
accession to the cabinet of \V. 1,.
Mackenzie King and the establishment nf a separate department of
labor with him us the minister.
The establishment of a department
of labor by the Dominion Government is significant, and should
prove to he a beneficial departure.
During recent years the organization of lahor has made great strides
due largely to the recognition by
the labor element ui the fact thut
to make an impression upon public
sentiment requires on its behalf the
use of the same diplomatic and
political qualities as have proved
Ueces-arv to the advancement of
u-.iier interests. Tiie leaders of the
laW element today are diplomats
snd they have succeeded in impressing the claimp of lahor on
governments with a force lhat
would have been impossible while
mere demagogues represented it.
Underlying all labor claims, however, there iius been a tendency tn

This tendency, however, is. gradually decreasing and there i- noticeable among tin- leaden ol tli" labor

is '.oiistantly decreasing and the

Has Much to be Thankful for.
Thanksgiving Day has again come
round and this great festival in its
ever recurring cycles once more reminds us that we are to return thanks
for mercies past received and to acknowledge that tbe Almighty has
showered bis many blessings of prosperity upon the people. On Monday
Revelstoke will celebrate tide festival
and all should remember that during
the past year there bas been much to
be thankful for. Kevelstoke has enjoyed good health, and she has, in
spite of the many dark shadows that
have fallen about her by reason of dull
times and eommercfal depression,
kept up her bead and emerged radiant
and bright, her people standing by ber,
convinced of ber strength nnd of ber
solidity. We cannot but be thankful for what Providence has given us.
Aro we not a prosperous people? Are
wo not blessed with health and a certain amount of the good things that
go to make life bright, and this world
desirable to live in. Our people are
reasonably happy and content and it
is to be hoped that at this festival of
Thanksgiving, we, in Revelstoke, will
return thanks for all the goodness of
life, and strive to still further improve
our condition and live in harmony
with our fellow neighbor.
Monday will be observed as a general holiday aud it is to be hoped that
people will give a l bought every bit as
earnest and sincere to the spiritual
aide of Thanksgiving D.iy as to the
temporal, and make up their minds
to profit by the lessons teamed during
the past yeai, and be gratified for the
bounties of peace, plenty, happiness
and prosperity.
The first Thanksgiving held on
American soil was by tbe Pilgrim
Fathers in the year 1621, shortly after
they landed at Plymouth rock. It
was not very much of a Thanksgiving
for tbey did not feel that they had
very much to be thankful for, but was
rather a revival of the English harvest
Over 3,000 years ago the Israelites
wandering in tbe desert were instructed by Mores to observe a holiday similar in character to the modern American Thanksgiving Day when tbey
came to tbe promised land. It was
called the feast of tbe tabernacles and
took place about the end of harvest
time. For eight days they dwelt in
booths made of evergreens. They partook ol corn, wine, oil and the fruits
of the ground. The priests performed
a magnificent ritual of which melodious choruses formed a large part.
In modern times the festival is generally an excuse to have an extra large
feast of rich things. The turkey is
prominent among the delicacies from
which tbe legend:
•To some tbe white, to some the dark,
Carves fate's myBterious ways,
For some it quite forgets to carve,
E'en on Thanksgiving Days.
Here's hearty hopes you may not be
Of those forgotten quite,
But may your plate return well filled,
With dark meat and with white."

Figures for the Year Reach Two
and a Quarter Millions
Tlie receipts on account of provincial
timbej und coal licenses fur Ootober
continue to approach tbe lf_U0,000
mark, and tluae receipts for the lineal
year recently ended ure in the neighborhood of $2,260,000. These figures
do not include royalties on cut timber,
but represent the iinnuul contributions
to the treasury of those who are holding timber on Crown lands for future
use. These figures effectually dispose
of the contentions of the opponents of
the government that the system of
timber license which they introduced
amounted to giving, away the timber
resources ol the country.
The October returns follow:
Timber licenses west of the
Cascades $101,184.96

During the Canadian Paoific strike,
which has recently been settled, the
company brought from the British
Isles a number of mechanics to act es
strikebreikers These parties, totalling in all 353 persons.
In all enscs the men were submitted
to a severe civil and medical examination, but as they understood fully the
circumstances under wbicli they were
brought out, and as they were physically fit they could not be debarred
under the Immigration Act, for although numbers of them were not
possessed of $25 in cash they had
asBiired employment with the Cena-
Pacific Railway.
Nevertheless before the immigration
otlicials allowed them to land tbe
company was obliged to give a written
guarantee that in tbe event of any of
them becoming public cbargeB the
company would be responsible for
tbeir keep, and if necessary for all
risk and expense entailed in returning
them to their former homes.
Already thirteen of the parties
brought out have shown by their
actions since arrival that they are
not desirable settlers and have been
deported and the same course will be
adopted if any more < f them prove
