I read the date as Meiji 31, 10th month 明治三十一年十月 (1898.10) -- it's a little hard to read the numbers all squished together like that, but I'm pretty sure that's what it is.
Also, I believe the publisher is Fukuda Hatsujirō 福田初次郎 -- the middle kanji is indeed hard to be sure of, but the address given in the colophon matches the one listed by Marks for Fukuda Hatsujirō.
