Editor' Lodger:- Dear Sir:���Enclosed you will .find'the Socialists' platform for School Trustees. If elected these are the questions I shall' endeavor to place on thc byclaws of
our City School.   .
Respectfully Yours,
Fellow Citizens:���As Socialist candidates in thc municipal cafnpaifcn of
lOOU we  stand primarily as advocates- of the principles of Revolutionary
Socialism.  We affirm  thai poverty in
its-entirely and thc major portion of
crime,   vice and '   wretchedness that
prevails in     our present social order
is the   result of the ownership by a
privileged  minority of  the es'.seniti-als
tools of wealth production.
Nothing short of the collective ownership by the workers themselves- of
all the means of wealth production
can give to the people that happiness and security which is essential
to   ife and liberty.
Our (mission as Socialists ;s to remove labor from tne category of coin
modifies; to abolish wage slavery,
and establish an industrial 'democracy, in which for the first time in human history,  mankind  may be free.
To this end we must ask always
and everywhere in regard to measures
brought forth by governing, bodies,

Popular   mis'jonceptions   with       le-
gard  to disease was the theme of an
address    delivered  by   Sii "Frederick
Treves  to    Ediiifcuigh     Philosophical
Institution recently.
Sir Frederick  Treves  said  the prevailing  idea  of disease  was   of something  that  was     woeful  and  malignant,    evil  >n origin and     m    intent,
evil in   effect.   The popular view was
that disease was a calamity,  that its
end was   destruction, and  that it was
purposeless  except in  the one direction   of doing  harm.    His contention,
however, was   thai there was nothing
preteinatural     >n disease,    that    its
phenomena, or symptoms were marked
���by  purpose, and that purpose      was
beneficent.       Thc processes of disease
hi?   held,   aimed   not    at thc  destruction of life,   but at the  saving of it,
and the 'manifestations   were  the outcome'of a natural'effort   towards     a
cure.   Disease,   as  popularly  realized,
was not, ;in   his opinion,   one  of   the
good  gifts,   for its  origin   was   benc-
voLriit and   protective.    If it  were not
for disease in.the  popular sense    the
human      race would  soon  be extinct.
Sir Frederick gave the illustration of
the  processes   in   the healing'of     :a
wound,  and  described  1hc battle   between     invading       micro-organisms
which sought to poison  tiie body and
the germs in  thc blood acting  on the
defence.    .Should   thc   invading   force
beat the  first line of-defence and find
a way  to   tlie channels   of   thc  body,
then  a stand  as  vigorous  was   made
at the second circle of entrenchments,
the lymphatic glands.   In the case of
a wound of the hand the glands under
(���lie  arm   opposed  the  invading  host.
They  inflamed;  possibly  they  suppurated.    The   subiicct   of this  condition
grumbled   and     deplored   misfortune,
which,    in addition     to     his wound
(which was  trouble enough) had given him  an inflamed   hand,   and  now a
tender  gland   under his  arm.       The
blame was  ill  placed.    It was     the
story  all over  again  of  Gellcrt,  the
faithful    but     misunderstood  hound.
This,   then,   was the infiamation   that

IMPRISONED  PENNIES.  The enormous decrease in thc, coinage of pennies, half-pennies and farthings, from ������14S,490 worth in 1902  lo ������77,895 worth in 190-1 is an aftermath of thc boom in pennies-caused by the greatly extended use of  penny-in-the-slot machines a few years'  ago, says the London Express.  The experts in coin production state  thai     there    was   something like a  "penny     famine," said one of      the  London and Southwestern Bank managers.  "For instance,  we think nothing of receiving at one city blanch of  our   bank ������100 worth of pennies   . in  one week, and the great producer  of  pennies  is Pechhani.    Many       branch  'banks  where business  men run in ami  ask  for   asovcrc-gn's   worth  of  pennies get their supply of coppers from  Pcckham.  "The secret of this is the penny-in-  thc-slot gas meter. The South Metropolitan Gas Company's army of  men who spend their time in eniply-  -ing the pennies out of household glutei's bank the money'at Peckham, an.l  mill.ons of pennies are poured into  our brandies1 in the Pcckham district  At present we find the demand for  big packets of pennies brisk." .  One of the secretaries of the South  Metropolitan tins Company ga\e an  account of thefne weeks' imprisonment  of millions  of  pennies.  "We  have  182,000  pentiy-in-the-siol  gas  meters.   A large corps  of  inspectors spend  their time in going round  emptying  these.    They      get  around  this   enormous   number  of   meters every five  weeks.      It is quite a usual  thing  for them   to  empty  out  2,500,-  OOOpennies in a few dajs.   These millions  of pennies have  been   loc'-ed    up  for  live   weeks   in   many cases,   an-1 i!  we    let   the emptying process sta:..l  still \ery long-we should make a in  terial difference to the stream of  coppers  in circulation."  ^DAVID SPENCER  j  STEAM   UKATKD  WJ-XL FUKNISJUO) ROOMS  ae-ae  \ i ���������* \j* \4l /  (Nanaimo) Ltd.  ���������TS.

As  men goiiig backiwards in time,'it     is  particularly noticeable in oui  Nanaimo neighbors'  newspapers. They are  usually     a day 'or two behind times,  sometimes even more.   The article referred to is as follows:  A  curious  pamphlet en  the subject  of- "Retrogression1 of Memory,       or  Thinking, Backwards,"  has been  published  by  the Colonial  Rochas, a former director  of the Polytechnic  (the  French   Woolwich),   who  is  endeavoring to prove the truth of the theory  of reincaniai-.on.

Colonel   Rochas   went  on  with  his  questions, and then  the woman     replied    in tore    deep   voice  of   a man.  She said her name was Jean Bourdon  and  that she was  a villager.  Colonel  Rochas caused inquiries  to  be    made,    and found that.a m-an of  that name had lived in the villagp the  woman mentioned as far back as 1812  After    three-quarters  of. an hour's  further   questioning the  woman     replied  in  thc deep  voice of a       man  called  Carterot.
