SOCIALISTS HEAR
THEIR CANDID ATE
Fenton   And   Hawthornthwaite Address
Meeting at Opera House on Some/
what Short Notice
[10 SERIOUS ACCIDENTS
The Socialists held a meeting    in on a platform adopted by the Labor
the opera house on Saturday night, party at Nelson. No. 5 plank ol this
a rather impromptu-affair as it was platform was public ownership ol all
late in the afternoon before it was franchises. Mr. Smith had not   been
decided to have the gathering. How- loyal to    that platform at Ottawa,
the party and sajd jn _utetance tllat t|)C cmm
ever, Mr. Win. Fenton,
candidate, and J. H. llawthornthwaite, M.P.P., who had been out on
the islands, arrived somewhat unexpectedly, and so it was decided to
take the opportunity ot addressing
the electors. Probably on accjnni o!
the short notice, the audience was
somewhat slim.
Mr. Geo. Hannay, who was in lhc
chair, explained the treason why so
short notice of .he Seating had teen
given, and introduced Mr. (!. I! Wilson as llie first sp,\ik'ir.
Mr. Wilson said that Mr. Fenton
would not go to Ottawa to represent
.simply British Columbia, but tlie I'i>-
minion of Canada, Talking along Ibis
line, he said anyone knew Hint today
it look it took nearly all a working-
man made to pay for the necessaries of life. This could not he laid altogether to transportation. If the
pentilc at Ottawa took a real inter-
tst in Ihe whole Dominion things
would be improved. For instance,
the government could do belter for
the people of thc prnlrjcs in the matter of lumber. When the jmcnlbers
went lo Ottawa they slioiill lie cognizant of the matters affecting other
parts of the country and act for the
people as a whole. He read a complaint front'Ontario of the small price
the country got for timber limits
sold to speculators, a most utibusi-
noss-like disposal ol the property of
the people nf Canada. If tlieSc resources Werc administered for the
good of th,' people instead nf the
speculators bow much would the condition of thc people lie improved.
Mr. Win. Fenton, the Socialist candidate said he had been making     a
tour of the conttiluency; he had been
received very favorably and had    no
doiibt of his ultimate success.  ( Applause.)     The    other parties were
Ogliting for thc hone but he was going to step In nnd get it,   Amongst
the many charge: in the Literal press
was one that the Socialists'were allied to thc Conservatives.  That was|
a falsehood; simply a campaign dodge.
He believed lhat it originated in an
attempt to injure the Socialist members    in the local house, Dial the)
were keeping  the Conservative government in power.   But the Socialists had uo interest in keeping either
of thc other parties in power.   Thc
Socialist     platform, from which he
read an extract, made it a matter of
indifference as to which of tlie other
parties was in power.   Some o[ thc
Liberal press bail  interviewed     Mr.
Wolley, who said he was not  a Labor
man,   nor    was he in favor of class
legislation. That did not harmonize
with the Socialist platform. Prior to
the    advent nf thv Socialists there
never was ,tt Labor party in the province.   He had once been a follower
of     Mr. Smith, but had abandoned
that  man when he found him allied
lo the Liberals.   Tlicy were charged
with following Mr. Smith round. Yes
hut be was hard to calch.  Mr. Smith
had one ail vantage over theni, he had
steamboats and trains at Ills disposal and some of the big guns among
the capitalists behind him.   Was that
the   position  of a Labor candidate?
Exception had been taken lo     _ho
speaker for chasing up Mr. Smith's
career.   Anyone  who deceived labor
like Mr. Smith deceived all themmm
like Mr. Smith deserved all thc condemnation that could be heaped upon him.   Mr. Smith had charged the
Socialists with llie Extension strike,
whereas   everyone knew the Socialists were nut in the majority ami the
Socialists did not believe In strikes.
Mr. Smith bad advised them the other night to join the American Federation ol Labor, but formerly hail opposed any  organization outside    of
Canada. A few years ago Mr. Smith
had met Mr. (lumpers and had   not
agreed with that gentleman In    his
views. Now  he  was advising people
to join  Mr.  (lumper's organization.
This showed how slippery Mr., Smith
wns. Mr. Smith was supported    by
Mr. Dunsmuir and other large capitalists,     thai
try could not own the railway, but
could operate it. So might a man
who drove a team ol horses own it
Thc Nelson platform advocated compulsory arbitration. Mr. Smith bad
not been loyal lo that, but believed
in tho old adage "Let him take who
hath the power, and let him keep
who can."
Mr. Hawthornthwaite taking up the
Nelson platform, said Mr. Smith had
never introduced a single plank    of
that platform in the house, Mr. Hawthornthwaite tlien expressed his anxiety to meet Mr. Smith on the public platform, but said that gentleman
had always evaded doing so. Turning
to the discussion ol thc various parlies, Mr. Hawthornthwaite said that
the Conservatives charged that   the
Liberals werc owned by thc G. T.l\,
while the Liberals, on the other hand
said (lie   Conservatives were owned
by tlie C.P.R.; he believed they were
both right.   Instead.of a govcrnincnt-
owncd railway, the socialists believed in a collectively owned railwaj,
so that every one ol the wage earners would be stock-holders in    the
railway and participate in all    thc
benefit* of that railway, and      the
wage system would be abolished. The
wage system,  wage slavery,   would
rlill remain under the system      of
government ownership. Rut uo Sociai
list would oppose government ownership- ju tlio    house, as there werc
onie     benefits     to    he     had.     It
was under present    conditions only
ommon decency  trial a government
should build, own and operate    its
railway as in Australia.   That was
better than private ownership.   Bill
to turn lo lhc chief subject that interested    them, thc question of Socialism.  On one side there was plenty tor all in this world; on thc other
hand were people living in degradation and want, and workiogmen fighting from day to day that their families should not sink into this condition.       Thirteen millions of people
in    the Old Country were underfed,
and twelve millions on the verge of
starvation.      In the United States
Hicy were rapidly approaching   that
rendition.   High tariff or low tariff
did nqt alter the conditions.   Capitalistic development would bring into    this province just such degradation    and want as he had pictured,
whether tlicy wanted or not, inside
ol twenty-five years every!man, in the
building would be a Socialist. ( Applause.   The Socialist movement was
gaining    ground and nothing could
stop it.   On thc other hand capitalists were riding to their doom. Japan and Russia were fighting for llie'
last great market of the world. Just
as the workingman had to sell his labor, so the capitalitts had to    sell
thcir products or go out of business.
The reason Great Britain ami   the
United States upheld Japan was be
cause they favored the open market;
while    Germany and France favored
Russia because they stood for a closed market.   It was this fight for the
last market of tlie world and nol admiration for the Japs that made Britain and the United  States    want
them lo win.    It was the same way
all through    life, one class working
against another and one town against
another.  Was it not true that   Nanaimo  was hoping that Ladysmith
would conic to grief and the    merchants ol Ladysmith were actucatcd
by the same feeling towards Nanaimo?   The secret ballot today was a
slave's ballot, because the working-
men were afraid the musters should
know for whom they were voting and
they might lose their jobs. The hu-
nilialiim    and     degredation of the
working class was gradually becoming     greater,   Socialism prescribed
the only remedy to take hold legally
ot those means and life ami wealth
production antl operate them for the
benefit ol all. Capitalism held these
advantages because its representatives werc voted into the house. Ai|lo

The

Oct. 24, developed into a fiercely raging battle yesterday, when, according to a hitherto reliable source, the
Japanese flung heavy forces against
the fortress in the third attempt to
secure a commanding petition. The
result ol yesterday's fighting is unknown. The Japanese have been pre
paring for this assault for a month.
It is believed that the Japanese did
not expect to capture the town on
this occasion, but to accomplislian-
other important step. This plan
was adopted following thc first assault, when thousands of lives were
sacrificed in an attempt to swarm
over tho fortifications by a mere
force ol numbers regardless of loss.
This assault like.the previous one,
was a climatic incident of weary
weeks of trench digging, gun mounting, and small engagements. In the
opinion of experts the assault will
cease when, the Japanese have secured such positions aa  will enable

sides hurling hand grenades at each

The Japanese infantry are now using mechanical devices which enable
them lo throw gienades with great
accuracy and rapidity.
In the meantime another body ol
Japanese assaulted the trenches on
the slope and stopped some  distance

St. Petersburg, Oct. 31 .-The Rus-
rian papers this morning, notably
the Gazette, give much credit to
France lor the favorable turn in tho
North Sea incident. The paper says:
"To French diplomacy, in a great

nf the papers, however, continue to

SUSPECTED OF

To-day Provincial Constable Cas-

blankets Irom Robt. Hughes, near
Cornelius Bowalcrs' place, close to
thc Whcatshcaf Hotel and also taking an overcoat and gloves, the property ot a Japanese. A man answering to the description ol McGregor, committed the theft and the information was 'phoned in to Mr.
Cassidy. He found that McGregor
had came to town yesterday and
some of thc stuff he had with him,
resembled the stolen goods, so the
man is now under arrest, awaiting
thc arrival of the persons who werc
nibbed to see whether llley can identify tho property.

THE MINT.
II Is good news for British Columbia especially that the government
has at last decided to call for tenders for the erection of a mint at
Ottawa. A number of years ago representations were made at Ottawa
for the establishment of a mint ami
filially thc project was adopted by
parliament and initital steps talicji
to carry it out. One delay alter another ensued owing, largely ho dbrrtit,
to the pressure of such banks nf* feared that thc establishment of a mint
would lake away from them son!'? ol
the advantages they enjoyed. Had
there been a mint in the earlier days
of the Yukon gpldfielils, Brltilli Columbia would have been a targe gainer
by the fact that there would have
lircu a ready market for the northern
gold. Failing this, furwever, the iprc-
ciocs metal has been nearly all sent
direct to the United Stales cities,
and by this means much of the trade
of the miners was lost to us, as they
naturally purchased in the places
where they sold lhc products ol their
mines. However, the mint is now assured and Canadian trade will be thc
gainer by thc market opened for gold,
and the inducement that miners will
have to conic to Canadian cities to
sell their dirlrt and in return make
their purchases here -instead of in the
States.

surmounting these difficulties, removing obstacles or building canals    on
those portions where they are needed, would only cost some $3,000,000,
exclusive of a canal around the Dalles
some   213   miles    from thc mouth,
which is being constructed now     by
the United Stales government.     A
great deal ol the stress is made of
the immense amount of traffic that
would be handled by this route    in
competition  with railways; and one
of the arguments used is that     it
would free the people of the districts
drained by the river from the power
of railway corporal ions.   It is   very
questionable,  however, whether    the
scheme, if carried out, would do all
for it that the promoters claim. Water carriage is certainly cheaper than
by railway, hut thc railways arc not
always us black iV; they are painted,
and would secure their share of   the
freight, even ii llie river was made
navigable throughout the whole    ol
its length, because they are more direct between objective points and aro
s%-niiicb swifter carriers,   l't is not
very likely, for instance, that freight
intended for thc const points of Uri,

through United Slates territory and

A canvass of the city is being made for subscribers to
I aily Ledger.    It has been suggested by some of the'
... T.ess men that it would be of interest and value to the
I community to know how many people live in Ladysmitli
land immediate vicinity, 'this means all ofthe actual reside
cuts within half a mile of the postoffice in Ladysmith, exclusive of Chinese.
Each subscriber to the Daily Ledger will be handed a
card and asked to write dowu a guess of the number of
people our census, which will be taken with reasonable ac
curacy will show.
Envelopes will be given with thc card. Write.down your
guess, sign your name, put the card in the envelope and seal
it up; eitheivhaud it to the canvasser or lpave it at the
Ledger office. All guesses must be in during October; none
will be counted after that date.
The census will be computed by the 15th of November.
The envelopes will then be opened and the following prizes
given:
1. To the person who guesses nearest to the exact num.
ber of people living within one-half mile of the postoffice
(exclusive of Chinese) $20.00 in gold.
2. The person coming second nearest, $10.00 in gold.
3. The person coming third nearest, $5.00 iu gold.
If two or more persons tie for any place the money will
be divided.
This contest will be absolutely fair. No person in any
way connected with the canvass will either give out any information or be allowed to compete.

HAS A CURE
FOR LEPROSY
George Pencloy, thirty-live years
a leper, has been cured ol the malady that through all the ages has
been regarded as beyond the reach
of medical skill, says a San Francisco despatch. During thc past 9
years he has been an inmate o! the
Kan Francisco pesthousc. Before goring there he was for a long time shut
uip in arsiinilar hospital at New Orleans, finally making his mcapc.
There can be no question that ho
was 'actually afflicted with leprosy,
having inherited the disease Irom his
mother, and nobody who ever saw
him at the institution on Twenty-
Sixth street would have any doubt
about it.
Thc San Francisco Board of Health
has declared 1'cpcloy to be fully cured, after thorough examination and
extended study ol his case by such
surgeons and physicians as Dr. 'James
W. Ward, now president ol the
Health Board; Dr. Howard Morrow
and Dr. Fred, G. Canncy. Although
the utmost precautions are taken to
keep lepers away Irom communication with (he general public, even as
in past centuries the victims ol the
"living death" werc isolated, compelled to wcai 'ong grey gowns and
hoods and to can y wooden clappers
"*Ior the purpose ol sounding warning tha «hey were lepers, tlie Board
of Health has released thc long imprisoned patient and alloweh bin; to
go wherever he pleases without surveillance or restraint.
Nothing is known to the doctors
about thc means or methods ol the
cure that, astonishes them. Thc credit is not theirs. Since miracles
were performed on earth, the medical men have regarded leprosy as absolutely beyond the possibility ol
cure. I'cpcloy, the subject, says
that he cured himself and that the
hca,.it! is thc result of a'discovery
never made before. He says that
all lepers can he cured; but lie has
suffered so long, and is now so helpless in the world to whicli he is almost a stranger, that he feels he has
a right to make a financial profit out
of his secret. So fur the present the
formula  is bis alone.
"Pcpelny is cured," said Dr. Ward
"His case has been looked into by
physicians whose standing and learning cannot be doubted, and there is
no question about the matter."
Dr. George I'urlensky, who has medical charge ol tile lepers at tile
pesthotise, says that in all certainty
a cure has practically lieen affected.
Tho disease, he thinks, niay not be
fully eradicated from the patient's
system, and he is to examine Pcpc-
loy once a month, lie agrees with
the other doctors, however, that the.
leper has been so thoroughly healed,
that there is no danger of the disease being spread by him and lhat
no trace of the leprosy can now lie
detected.
I'epeloy is about forty years olage
lie was born in Honolulu,

RAFFLE FOR
A HUSBAND
DOWIE LOSES
THE BEQUEST
Dowie has just ir*t a bequest from
a New Zfealander ol $56,000 and
John Alexander feels put out about
it. A jury in Judge Tuthill's court,
Chicago, has rendered a verdict tbat
Dowie is not entitled to $55,000, left
to him by the will ol "Red" Sutton,
described as a wealthy sheepherder ol
New Zealand, who died fa Dowie's
"hospice" several years ago. • The
jury lound that Sutton was not in
his right mind ' when he made his
will. The testament was contested
by a brother of the deceased. Counsel for Dowie has announced that he
will appeal.
By thc way, it is no longer correct
to refer to Dowie as Elijah II or III
He hali declared himsell Apostle and
High Priest of the Christian Catho-.
lie church in Zion and is sah) to be
preparing to move to Jerusalem.. He
has proclaimed eleven other men as
"apostles ot Jesus Christ," and be
and they are to hear conlessions of
sin. This establishment ol the confessional was not well received in
Chicago, but Dowie overruled all opponents in Zion and has had himself
recognized by his adherents as the
"Divinely Commissioned Apostle of
the Lord Jesus Christ." Dowie explained to his flock that tbe twelve
apostles at the head of the Church,
among whom he was the first, would
have the power to forgive sins and
to hold the keys ol heaven. The new
priesthood will also be tbe final authority in all matters spiritual, educational, industrial, commercial and
political.
As to going to Jerusalem a report
from Chicago puts it this way: —
"John Alexander w II enter Jerusalem as Christ did, on the back ol a
white ass. When that animal is
found, all will be ready lor the trip.
Dowie has also declared that be will
make "the most important announcement" that was ever shouted to the
world when he reaches the Holy
Land. Jerusalem has been flooded
with Dowie's literature, Large
handbills telling ol his entry into the
city on a white ass have been distributed. An interview with Dowie was sought on thc uubject, but the
First Apostle and High Priest had
gone lo Michigan "there to pray and
scok strength."

traps were not desirable in the

ALLCOMERS 1; SCOTS 1.
The Scots were beaten by the Allcomers   in the Association Footfjall
match yesterday by a score ol  lour
goals to one.      Although it drizzled
at  intervals  through  the afternoon,
there was a fair attendance at    tha
Bunker grounds anil the coolness   of
thc air was rather an advantage   to
those engaged in the heat of the contest.    The game was rather    slow:
at timet but towards    the end was I
more    interesting,     The Scots during the first half played down   hill I
after-1 fciyards the Bukkcrs and after    the
'kick-off made    things warm for the
Allcomers.      The    latter,  however,
bucked up and carried the ball to the
other end until a long kick by Leahy from the side, so slow as to  deceive Ninimo in goal, passed him and
and scored first blood for thc   All-
comenr,  the only point secured    at
half time.
The Scots seemed to play better
up-hill than down, for Graham soon
scored their Iirst goal. With varying fortuncr the ball was kept going till from a bunch in front of thc
Scots goal. Adam sent the ball
through. Not long afterwards, Itli-
(hic improved another chance to
score for tbe Allcomers. Almost
from the kickolT, Adam by a brilliant run, dribbled the ball down
(ielil and passed to Mlchle who shot
successfully, making thc score All-

.SOCIALISTS HtiAR
THEIR CANDIDATE
(Continued from Page One.)
licvcd in capitalism, it was capable
of reform, but nu single great reform
movement had .been inaugurated     hy
theni, tlicy were lined up almost to a
■nan to vote down reforms that Socialists tried to bring hi.    There was
the hill to stop Chinamen working
underground     in mines in tlie local
house, aud the Settler's  Rights lull
that the Liberals in tlie house opposed.   The Socialists hud introduced a
bill to give engineers in mines    an
eight-hour day,  and every  iiicuiticr,
both Conservative and Liberal,   with
the exception of seven or eight, vot-1
ed against it.   The speaker had   in
traduced    thc workmen's compcusa
tion act, and carried il in spite   of
ail     opposition.    (Applause)     Mr.
Ralph    Smith had never introduced
such an act, nor even attempted to
do his duty; yet now came back   lo
them and asked for another chance.
The Socialists iu the last session of
the local house introduced ten measures and seven ol them went through.
One was a measure allowing working
miners to elect their own Inspectors,
lie had thought to meet Mr. Smith
here tonight to bring up that gentleman's broken pledge before him   and
hoped yet to catch him before    the
campaign was over.   Thc day of  the
Labor fakir was over.   Mr. Fenton
was   thc candidate that the people
could support and if there was  any
truth in thc statements they made,
let them support that gentleman.
Mr. John Johnson: "Why did you
vote 'against the ballot boxes going
back to Pernio?"
Mr. llawthornthwaite: "I don't
care whether they went to iFiornle or
to Halifax. They did go back, I believe, and the Liberal candidate got
the worst of it. That is, perhaps,
why you feci sore about it."
Mr. Johnson replied that Mr. llawthornthwaite promised to vote lor
the boxes to go'back but had not
done so.
After a few closing words Iront the
chair, the meeting adrourncil.
