Low   Wages tho Source of Increasing
Low wages is the source of the largest
share of immorality. It is so easy to
talk platitudes when you've had a good
dinner and sit comfortably clothed and
warm in your snug room. But think ot
youth and fresh girlhood fading dav
after day in the dim precincts of factory
and sweatshop; think of every hope slowly dying, ol the want und despair and
pinching out of all the meagre gray days.
And side by side "with this terrible existence place the temptations that always
come to poor youth and to poor girlhood.
How ninny of us who are better off would
keep to the straight and narrow path
were we in n like case, while the broad
highway on which lie the pleasures aud

that way lies sin! Well, when the he.-rt
and brain aro dulled to apathy, tho conscience is nut apt to be very sensitive
When want of decent food, of clothing
and I.eat, and the common necessities
assail one, when honest toil will not bring

to keep on thnt narrow, grim wny, And
we are only human. A great and ten 1*

Sick headaches! Always trace them to a lazy liver or a sick stomach. Poisonous matter, Instead of being
thrown out, Is reabsorbed into the blood. When this poison reaches the delicate brain tissue it causes congestion
and that dull, awful, throbbing, sickening pain. CASCARETS remove the cause by stimulating the liver, making
the poison move on and out, and purifying the blood. The effect is almost instantaneous. Ladles, whose sensitive
organisms are especially prone to sick headaches, do not suffer, but find relief in CASCARETS Candy Cathartic.

The speech made by W. VV. B. Mclnnes M. P. at Nanaimo, on Labor
Day, is causing n commotion nmotigj
the eastern press. (specially his remarks
on the Chinese problem. It is having
the desired effect of awakening the
people of the east to the grave dangers
that are confronting their western
Province, by the influx of this yellow
hordo of Asiatics. The workingmen
ut this province have long suffered
from the neglect of the Dominion Government to put a stop to the immigration of the Chinese, and it needed
just such honest, outspoken words
from some prominent public man,
such as those uttered by Mr. Mclnnes
to bring them to the senso of the
danger by which this province is
threatened. The Chinese who keep
flocking in, and who are pampered aud
encouraged by a rotten aristocracy,
little better than the Chinese they
employ, are a source of grave danger
to this New Dominion. The United
States, which has had the largest
experience of any nation in the world
in handling and amalgamating foreign
immigration, after devoting years of
experience and millions in money to
the problem, were at last obliged to
exclude the Chinese whom they found
could not be amalgamated with a
white race. If the people of the easl
wish to save themselves the phock of
hearing of such doiugB in their western
province as thoKO that were witnessed
a few years ago in Seattle and Rock
Springs, they bad better take in hand
quickly the suppression of this loathsome Chinese immigration. There, is u
limit to the patience of even a good
citizen, and honest men will not long
ondure seeing their daughters driven
onto the streets and their sons made
tramps  because   they   cannot   lower
