"I would rather have 50 laborers

ul a lending Nelson business man tl e
other day. Asked for an explanation, he sialed that thc laboring man
always spent his tuonev at home and
paid the price asked for goods without haggling, while the customer of
the capitalist clar.s was prettj certain
to attempt the "Jewing'' process,
winding up with tho remark that
similar goods could bo purchased
much cheaper in the east. If the
price'is not made  to suit hi*1 views.

Sli can mi rchants voice similar experiences to that related above, ami

And laughs to think tomorrow's sun
May downward look in vain,
And men may bold their work undone
Throughout the bonis oi rain.

Prom oul the dingy marsh,
Sounding amid the grass and reeds

Prof.   Bell  Thinks  Pro
blem Will Never Be
Solved by Baloons
London, Oct. 30.— Prof. Alex.
Graham Bell leaves for America
today, where he will continue his
experiments in aerial navigation.
Prof. Bell said, "1 dont believe
that the great problem of aerial
navagition will ever be solved by
balloons. While you may successfully navigate a balloon in light
currents, it is obvious that any
floating body lighter than air is at
the mercy cf the winds. Such a
body cannot carry tbe motive machinery of great power. It
is little more than a toy. I have
been experimenting several years at
my laboratory although I never actually carried my theories into practice. Tbe theoretic results 1 reach
will be in time published in book
form. I believe tbe problem of
aerial navigation will be solved, hut
not by the use of balloons."

exerted that the soldiers even stole

three days at Hsuan Hua Fu, and
then, owing to the tear ot foreign

is shown in the case ofC, M. Cook,

ol passing bogus checks bearing

Cook, it is alleged, induced William J. Wright to deposit checks
purporting te represent $1100 to

bank. These bore Muhlman's name.
The committee not desiring to let
the amount of subscriptions be generally known, had arranged to cash
the checks in different banks.

and a few days ago tbe prisoner appeared again with $170x3 in checks,
The hank officials began an investigation and found the checks had
been forged.
Other similar transactions have
been reported from the interior
which lead to the supposition that
the total receipts by the forgeries

Socialism preaches the equality of
man; also, that man shall enjoy the
fruits of his labor in perfect freedom
and tranquility.
Shame upon tho white man who
would patronize an Oriental in preference to hard-working, honest and
respectable men and women of their
own race.
There is this difference between
the candidates.   Chris Foley appeals
<*to workingnien as a workingman;
his rival candidates as "friends" of
labor.   Do you see the point ?
Not content with stealing British
citizenship, the Japanese hordes are
applying at Vancouver for a place on
the voters' list. It is no wonder the
workingnien arc becoming alarmed.
By actual investigation, 120 Orientals are engaged in the merchant
tailoring for men and women in Van*
.couver as against 80 whites. Think
of tho liability to disease and the
menace to civilized workingnien.
Judged by their individual merits,
•Chris Foley is head and shoulders
above his two opponents. The Queen's
English suffers less at his hands, his
arguments are more incisive and
clearcut, nnd lie believes what ho
Western life inculcates and encourages independence, as much in the
thought as in the action. It is but
fit, then, that the Wes.. should be the
birthplace cf the Independent Labor
Party and witness its greatest glories.
Perhaps the chicfest of these glories,
will bo the election of Chris Foley.
Many profess alarm in the prospect
,of Chris Foley going to Ottawa, in
that he could command no pat-ro age
for the constituency. At the very
extreme he could do no worse than
llewctt Bostock or John Andrew
Mara. The alarmists also overlook
the fact that Chris Foley is gifted
.with brains and a tongue,

Canada of ours, government ownership of tho Intercolonial railway i»
pronounced a success; and, if the
government could afford to build tho
C.P.R. and give it away to men who
have since made colossal fortunes out
of it, why could they not afford to
operate the road along with the Intercolonial ? The exorbitant freight
rates of a greedy corporation like
.the C. P. It. have done more to
retard the growth of the West than
any other factor, but the time is at,
hand when a government road will
give us the relief needed. Thc Intercolonial is reaching out for Pacific
connections, and n vote for Foley at
this juncture will help the thing
We Canadians are wont to boast of
our country as a land of peace and
order, where the presence of the military is suffered simply for exhibition
purposes. Recent events, however,
have forcibly dispelled this pleasant
illusion and have brought tho public
face to face with an element of dan
ger in the growing power of corporations. The strike in Vallevlield,
Quebec, last week, of a couple of
hundred laborers, resulted in several
battalions of militia being sent to the
spot and a score or more of persons
being injured. As in the case of the
Steveston fiasco last Bummer, the military were really not required, Por a
little tact and judgment would have
settled the whole matter. Canada
loses greatly in reputation by these
.unseemly affairs and, incidentally,
the Laurier government will suffer at
the elections. Compulsory arbitration
