British Columiiian.
Nkw Westminster, B. C, Tuesday Evening, January 21, 1890,
Number 172
Whatbvbh Canada may think on tho subject, her
rivals in the emigration field uro evidently determined
to Bpnre no effort to secure desirable European colonists, remarks a cotemporary. The determined steps
which the Argentine Republic is taking in this direction has been often noticed, and now news enmos from
Queensland of the adoption by tho assembly, by
thirty-four votes to nineteen, nf an immigration vote
of £2.50,000 sterling, Some of tho memberii expressed
themselves opposed to immigration altogether, bllt the
minister of works, while admitting that an objection
might be taken to the introduction of artisans, contended that this could not apply to agricultural laborers. Without immigration, ho added, the colony
would havo been but little bettor than Western Australia, for the immigrants introduced now formed,
with their children, three-fourths of the population of
the colony. If tins need for greater activity in immigration bo allowed in Queensland, what shall be said
of tiio present immigration policy of Canada. Tho
statistical abstract shows thut last year Canada spent
$182,051 on immigration. Queensland is this year
upending *],2.*i0,(MI0. I" °-*lm words, Queensland,
with its (108,407 square milos of territory and ,'{.10,0(10
people, is spending seven tunes as much as Canada
with 3.J million square miles of territory and 5 millions
of people. Immigration of the right sort is needed
perhaps more than anything else at this time for the
development of Canada's vast dominions and splendid
resources. The same remark will apply particularly
to the Pacific province, and federal, provincial nn I
municipal authorities will do woll to make a note of it
und act accordingly.
Great Britain is in a pusitiou of peculiar difficulty,
observes an exchange, in regard to the Portuguese-
African dispute. If she uses force she plucoa herself
in tho position of a great power using its giant strength
upou u pigmy. And arbitration, after the manifestly
unjust decisions, such, for example, as tho Sau Juan
affair, has, reasonably enough, no attractions for her.
Bismarck has offered his good offices, but tbey will, in
view of bis known opinions, scarcely bo accepted.
Portugal suggests the Pope. But oneof tho predecessors of Leo XIII. gavo the very possessions in dispute
to Portugal some centuries ngo. As Bismarck's views
are no secret, neither of these arbitrators would lie
very satisfactory. But there is a possible contingency
not yet noticed hi the public roports, It does not
seem likely that Portugal would assume her present
attitude unless secretly backed by some stronger 'tower. It may be that the sealed orders and tho gathering of grent fleets are more for the instruction of thia
stronger power than for poor littlo Portugal.
I'koi'lk in Europe who regard Cnnnda as an Arctic
country will have a different opinion after they leurn
thnt while the Pacific railways iu the United ,Steles
were Btiow-hlocknded on the great .Americnn desert
nud in the Roekioaaiid trains delayed thirty-six hours,
the Canadian route wus opon nil along the line, with
trains arriving and departing on time ut all points;
This may be a gootl advertisement for the railway,
but it is a better oue for Canada, As a matter of fuel
the isotheruiul conditions iu tins country us the traveller proceeds westward are fur more propitious than
in the United .States. The snowfall is not so heavy
nor tho frosts so severe us on the elevated sterile
plateau south of tho boundary, while the lower altitude
of the mountains admits the warm winds of the Pacifio
to the plains and valleys of Alberto. These climatic
facts are welt known in America, and should lie widely published in Europe that travelers to India ami
Australia may he induced to try the route via Montreal, Winnipeg and Vancouver, ami thus see whnt
this Dominion really is.
A meeting of workingmen will be bold in the Foresters Hall on Thursday evening, which is of considerable importance to mechanics genornlly throughout tho city. A number of important subjects will
ooino before the meeting, which are of much interest
to the workingmen, uml a largo nml representative
gathering should bo the result. Oneof the principal
matters to bc laid before the meeting will lie the
length of a dnys labor, the genoral opinion among
mechanics being that nine hours Ib n fair dnys work.
