Independent   Witness   Advocates   Employing Coolies.
Bishop Hanwell. of the Methodist
Episcopal church, who has just returned from Africa to the United States,
says that there are now about 50,000
Chinese laborers In the gold mines at
Johannesburg, The number will soon
reach 75,000, and probably iu the neai
future 76,000.    lie adds:
"Under the Immigration laws, which
return the labor.rs to iheir homeb at
the end of three years, unless they
desire to remoiii another term, thi-
ebb and flow of the Chinese tide to
and from the Transvaal will mean
much to the laborers and to ChinaMt-
self. The already enormous demand
for labor in the Transvaal ts sure to
increase far beyond the supply of native African labor, and the employment of white laborers as superintendents in Ihese mines, to any large ex-
tent, seems Impracticable, There are
nuw alsiui 100,11110 native laborers ln

Inconsistency Manifested
in New Appointment
Conservative Leader Borden so Stigmatizes Excuses For the Traitor's New Employment.
Two significant things happened In
Connection Willi the North Atlantic
Trading Company, both of which are
condemnatory of llle government responsible for them, nays the Colonist.
Our reaslers will remember that the
members of lbe government in parliament and their supporters out of parliament defended! the contract with
this nebulous corporation as a good
one, and in the best interests of the
country. Notwithstanding lis virtues,
however, the government cancelled the
contract, which had still some years
to run. The significant thing about
such a procedure is that the contract,
in such circumstances, should have
been cancelled. It would certainly be
as great a mistake to cancel a good
contract as it would be to make a bad
Bearing on the same question,, we
have the fact that W. T. R. Preston,
who was largely responsible for the
North Atlantic Trading Company, was
declared to have been a most zealous
and successful Immigration agent He
was backed up by the Liberal members of the committee before whom
the investigation of the affairs of the
North Atlantic Trading Company took
plgce. ami stoutly defended ln the
house by Liberals from Sir Wilfrid
Laurler down. Long articles in his
tis'half appeared In the Liberal press
extolling him to the skies, aB the greatest immigration agent Canada ever
The second significant fact to which
we hnve reference fs that with such
testimonials lu his favor by those in
power he has been removed from the
office he held and has been transferred
to a post in the department of trade
and commerce. The scene of his future operations will be in Japan and
Corea. Now it must be manifest to
every reasonably minded person that
to dismiss a man who was an efficient
und successful servant was an act of
ingratitude. If .Mr. Preston is as good
a man as his political friends say he
is, the government should not be
afraid of public criticism of his acts.
There is only one of two conclusions
to draw from Uie actions of the government in this matter. Either the
members In council assembled recognized the Indefensibility of the North
Atlantic Trading Company and Mr.
Preston, whom they had endeavored
to defend, or they have been actuated
by crnven cowardice and bowed before the storm of public opinion. Either conclusion Is decidedly discreditable to them as a government.
But to return to Mr. Preston. He
has entered the department of trade
and commerce under Sir Richard Cart-
wright. The latter haB a penchant apparently for succoring men of Mr,
Preston's class. It will be remembered that he gave an appointment to a
Mr. Jackson, whoso actions in endeavoring to unseat a local Conservative
member became notorious. It will be
remembered that Jackson had hired
persons to secure evidence, true or
i'ulsc, to unseat Mr. Sutherland, and
thus relieve ihe Ross government from
the crisis of a majority of one. Jackson was severely censured by the
courts, hut Sir Richard Cnrtwright
calmly assumed the responslDlltty, The
minister ot trade and commerce had
no criticism to pass upon Jackson's
errors, except that he had been indiscreet; then laying down the doctrine
lhat the only requirement for promo,
lion in the civil service of Canada Is
that dishonesty must be practiced so
tbat II cannot be proven. It was of
Ihis that Mr. It. L. Borden said ut lhe
time: "There never was ln public
llle of Ibis or any other country a more
damnable doctrine mure unblushliigly
It was a decided Bhoek to the sensibilities of the country and lo those of
parliament Even the ministers felt
constrained to leave the house while
lhe explanation was being made. Sir
Richard, being In  Ihe senate, will  no
doubt again assume the full responsibility of Mr. Preston's appointment to
a place under him.
Mr. Preston this tlmo has been
placed as far us possible away from
tho centre of affairs. Ono cannot very
well Imagine what sort of trouhlo he
can create for..the government and
himself In Japan and Corea, but Ills
mischievous    onergy    and    Ingenuity
may be depended upon for sure results
Booner or later. Mr. Preston has not,
by any means, exhausted his resources.
Notorious Swindler Said to be at Last
Readers of The Canadian will remember the meteoric career of Rev.
A. J. Day, who posed as the advocate
orphaned Macedonians, and who sue-
ceeded ln swindling the good people of British Columbia, Alberta nnd
elsewhere out of about $20,000. He
offered for a consideration to place
children, whose parents had been slain
by Infidel Turks, among Christian
families, and collected in advance the
cost of bringing them from Asia tu
this country, where they could grow
up amid good influences. Rev. Day
was a swindler, pure and simple, who
put on the garb of the minister in order to prey the better among good people.
Chief of Police Jarvls Is in receipt
of a letter from the coast, which states
lhat Rev. Day has been located; thnt
he is now in Persia, where he has settled, married and is living like a nabob on his ill-gotteo gains. It ls stated
that he is safe from prosecution for
hla offence, as there is no extradition
treaty between Canada and Persia,
and that he cannot be taken away
from his native land and brought back
here to answer before the courts for
his felonies. It Is said that the only
way in which he can be punished Is
for the Canadian government to furnish Muzaffer-ed-Oin, the shah of Per-
sia, an account of his misdeeds, and
perhaps he might elect to punish him.
The shah of Persia ls an absolute
monarch, and might think It worth
while to arrest and cut off Rev. Day's
head for his misdeeds In Canada and
confiscate his gains. This would he
profitable to the shah, but would be
rather disagreeable to Rev. Day. The
shah has the power, and the question
which is agitating a number is, will
he exercise it pro]ierly In the case of
Rev. Dayi It Is certain that such an
outcome of the case would not he received with tears by the many victims
of the oily Mr. Day.
Curious Medical Methods.
A physician has Just returned from
China laden with stories of Chinese
medicine. Medical consultations are
carried to their extreme limit ln China, he says. There, when anyone becomes seriously 111, a consultation of
15 or 20 doctors is held. The doctors
fill the house with their arguments.
They make as much noise as a political convention. But such a consultation as that would be considered small
and futile if a great man���a mandarin,
say, of the third class���were to be Ul.
To consult on his case at least 100
doctors would gather together. A
member of the royal family was taken
sick while I was in China, and my
Chinese host told me, with a good
deal of pride, that the largest consultation known to history had been held
over the sick man. No fewer than
316 physicians, he said, had come from
every part of the kingdom to study
and discuss the case. The royal na-
tlent, I afterward heard, died. This
mammoth consultation had been held
in vain.

Home, who stopped off here on Tues

strides In the Canndlan railway situn
Hon that it was nothing to be sur
prised at.
"Canada Is like Kipling's 'Ship thnt
found herself.'    Only Canada has nol
quite found herself. What we want la
population. Labor is required from
the Arctic ocean lo Pategonla throughout North and South America, but the
governments of other lands are nol
Biich idiots as we are in restricting immigration. Let them all come In.
There is work for all. Every two or
three men that come into Canada ansl

someone else to do. They are like a
new dollar. Hand It out from the
bank and it turns itself In value a dozen or more times in a year.
"I quite believe that within a year
we in Canada will be in a very serious condition as a reBult of not having sufficient labor."
Wages In York State.
���According to official figures given
out by the New York state department
of labor, the average earnings of the
first three months of the present year
of 333,000 workmen employed In factories, stores, hotels, railway service,
construction work and other occupations were (2.33 a day, or $212 for the
quarter. These figures are considerably above the average earnings of
wage earners generally, because they
relate chiefly to skilled workmen belonging to trade or labor unions. No
women and few minors are included,
and unskilled labor Is feebly represented. The average wage for a day's
work in this period was %'i, which is a
large advance on the wages of previous years. Last year the average daily wage, calculated by the same methods, was $2.85. Quarterly earnings
have increased even more than daily
wages, owing to steadier employment.
A year ago the average quarterly earnings of organized wage workers were
only $187, a3 compared with the present figure of $212, and last year the
average duration of employment in
the three months was only 66 days, aB
compared with 71 days this year. In
no other recent year has the average
number of days of employment in the
first quarter exceeded 68. The extraordinary demand for labor is not confined to the building and construction
industries, where it is most marked,
but is characteristic of nearly all the
industries of the state.

Strike  In  Finland    Proves    a Failure
Owing to the Falnt-Hearted-
ness of the Leaders.
St. Petersburg, August 2.���The collapse of the mutiny at Sveaborg, coupled with tbe break-down of the plans
of the revolutionists to secure possession of the Haltic squadron and promote an Immediate rising at Cronstadt, greatly changes the situaUon.
The spirits of the government officials
have risen, and those of the revolutionists are correspondingly depressed,
and tbe arrangements' for ordering a
general strike on Saturday may be
countermanded. The strike in Finland
ls already a failure, owing to tbe fact
that the more intelligent of the Finns
did not support it, ub they realized
that by placing themselves at the
head of a purely Russian revolutionary movement, they might justify reprisals and Jeopardize the newly-made
grant Ini their liberties.
The latest reports show that all the
rumors to the effect that the Baltic
squadron was In the hands of tho mutineers were untrue. When the mutineers, who were led by agltutors from
the shore, and who believed thut tho
squadron was coming to their rescue,
found thnt hope in Hint direction was
crushed, dissensions broke out among
ihem und they turned their guns upon
each other, those who had determined
to die rather than surrender shooting

Dr. McRae is a graduate of Dahl-

iu charge at Greenwood and Phoenix
for a part of 1900 and 1901, and has
definitely thrown in bis lot with Western Canada.
He is profoundly Interested In the
labor problem that confronts the west
at present. Having read the report of
the fruit growers' action In yesterday's
Canadian, he said:
"One cannot help sympathizing with
tb edestre to keep Canada as a home
for white men, If possible. But 1
doubt very much If It be really wisdom to retard development and cripple
every "Industry rather than avail ourselves of tbe supply of really efficient
unskilled labor tbat we can easily and
readily obtain by simply treating all
foreigners, including Chinese, in the
same way. ,
"I believe that the labor union men
are allowing themselves to be frightened by a shadow. There can be no
danger of tbe Chinese obtaining any
ascendancy in any part of Canada, ol
of really competing wltb white men.
On the contrary, there is no doubt In
my mind that a supply of Chinese labor would make possible such development as would permit tbe employment of far more white men than at
present, and on even better terms.
"Moreover, it cannot be-ignored that
are at present face to face with a
very serious problem. The building o(
railways, the clearing ot lands, opening up of mines and general development ot resources Is creating a great
demand for labor, skilled and unskilled. So tar all efforts to meet that demand have failed, and enterprises are
postponed ln consequence.
"At the same time the pinch ls being felt perhaps even more acutely in
another direction. Domestic help is
not to be obtained on any terms. The
consequences of that are obvious. It
is certainly preventing settlement and
postponing tbe attainment of the
means of comfortable living.
"That ls the aspect of the question
that appeals most directly to me. In
the college domestic help Is an absolute necessity. We cannot obtain
white help at all, and by the exclusion
of Chinese we have made that help
costly and uncertain, and provided for
its gradual destruction.
"The exclusion Is not benefiting the
labor unionists whose agitation secured It, and It Is Injuring the whole
country, probably the laboring classes
most of all.
"We ln Alberta are suffering from
the dearth of labor as much as you are
in Kootenay. I am very glad that the
Kootenay fruit growers have had the
courage to go on record. I fear there
Ib little hope, however, of early relief.
The question ls, I am sorry to Bay, almost certain to be treated, not from
a national, but from a political point
of view. " N

Gold Output In Rhodesia.
The Rhodeslan output of gold for
the month of Juno was 47.CIM ounces,
the Inrge-t amount on record for a
single month. This total was 935
ounces in excess of May, and 11,004
ounces above the output of June, 1905.
For the six months of this year the
production amounted to 263,460 ounces
���an increase of 66,174 as compared
with the same period of 1906, of 149,*
1161 as compared with 1904, and 145.-
169 us compared with 1903. The halt
year's output Is already within 6,000
ounces of the full year 1904, and al.
most 32,000 ounces In excess of the
full year 1903.

The practice of passing Inadequate
sentences upon criminal offenders, as
is the custom In several of the rural
districts, is becoming a matter of sunn.1
embarrassment to both police and gaol
officials here. Recently al Grand
Forks a knifing affray look place, and
the offender was charged with "stabbing with intent to kill." He pleaded
guilty tu the charge, and the magistrate who tried the case sentenced
the prisoner io three months in gaol
at Nelson, with an additional penalty
of one hundred dollars' fine. If the
tine la noi paid, the offender is to
serve an additional three months.
While The Canadian has little disposition to criticise the administration
of justice In Hritish Columbia, ii must
be apparent thai BUOb B meagre sen
ience can have but little deterrent ef
feet, and because of lis Inadequacy
will leave room for the suspicion tbat
life can be held as cheaply in Canada
as it is held iu the border states of
the union. When the facts are clearh
established by evidence against the
shrewdest defence that can be mad*
in the courts of law, it is the custom
in most places to impose penalties
that are at least an approach to even-
handed justice. Even when there are
extenuating circumstances, as does nol
appear to have been the case in   the
prosecution at Qrand Forks, th*- prac
tlce of police magistrates has been to
insist thai the us*' of the knife cannot
be tolerated In Canada. When a man
pleads guilty tn a charge of assault
with intent to kill, he must be u dan
geroUB character in the extreme, and
the option of a fine iu lieu of a longer
sentence seems to us to fall far shori
of meeting the situation. Nol long
since, a colored woman in the restricted district here committed d griavftis
assault upon another person with a
knife, Tin- sentence recorded against
her was 88 months, and this without
nny admission or evidence that tii
wounding was with intent to do grlev
o'in bodily harm, much less to kill.
(Jrand Forks in experiencing s boom
nt the present time, which is giving It
wide and enviable notoriety, and it
consequently attracts the mual horde
of adventurers and loos i t baraoters
thai make one's persona] safety a se
rious  consideration,    Under  the   hi
cutnstances    nny     slackening    of   the
reins of justice or failure to place emphatic emphasis on the sacredness of
human life in not the best way to ex
elude  the  Criminal   element.
Another practice of some of these
bonier towns is the common ono of
sentencing vagrants and tough characters to serve three weeks in the
common gaol here. They are escorted
to Nelson, their fares paid, they are
housed and fed for less than a month,
and finally emerge from tlie prison
financially broke and only to be a menace to the good reputation of the peo<
pie of this  town,    It   Is often  a   pity
thai a tramp must be sent to do time,
nnd the lot of the unfortunate some-
times Induces vagrancy. It Is a blot
Upon our civilization that we seem to
have no other method of dealing with
such cases than sending them Into
confinement; but if they must be sent
to gaol, some regard should be paid
to the welfare of the community into
which they must emerge ou the ex
piratlon of their terms.
Thf attorney-general might wisely
give instruction to stipendiary magistrates and justices of the peace tu
have regard to these conditions.
The passing of the influence and
power of John Alexander Dowle is one
of tbe lew psychological phenomena
which suggest so wide and particular
a sphere lor the study of human na
ture. That a meeting of the faithful
should be held In SSlon City under the
direction of the courts for the purpose
of electing a successor as overseer of
Zion's industries is In itself a crushing reminder of the uncertainty of human power, and that the meeting
should be held and its work done
without mention of the name of Dowir
ls a sad reflect ion on the man who
once heldf the faith, confidence and
even love of thirty thousand people
in the hollow of his hand, Dowie's career has heen as marvellous as that of
any prophet, or false prophet, but tho
ignominious oblivion in which he now
finds himself is a striking study in
contrasts and an unfailing indication
of the modicum of divine sanction
that  was  behind  his  fanatical career.
A tew years since his name was the
synonym for sensation, ami no king
or potentate more fully played the rule
of cynosure than did the self-appoint
td restorer, The indomitable perse,
rerance, tie- amazing vitality, th.- bus-
iness ability, tin- originality, the aggressiveness and the lighting power
of Dr. Dowle were���despite the suspi
dun of his motives, which he wns
never able to overcome���the aUniira-
tion of the world.
Thai he was a fakir those who knew
him most intimately never doubted,
and It is nothing to their credit that,
believing mis, then- were not wanting
those who, for the sake of a share in
the little halo of his glory, were equally willing to share in his duplicity.
Now he lives, a poor man, deprived of
ali that he strove so heroically tu gain,
''��� pendeni upon the cold charity of n
lew friends who plt> bis downfall,
Kveii his ecclesiastical crown has bei n
Irreverently placed on the head of another, and his office Is to be filled by
one who has been anointed with bolj

Broken in health, the victim of a
lingering disease, a soiijen for pathos,
,"" refuses to di,., and even the king
of terrors avoids him. The worker
of miracles Is himself In ninny ways
the greatest of his miracles, aud without the sanction of similar Clrciim-
stances p ma) be aald 0r him. as was
ut4d ot anothei) "He saved others;
Himself He cannot save." aie transit
glorhi  mundi.
While we nre dealing with tho subject of justice. It is interesting to nolo
the speedy retribution that was meted
out to a colored criminal lu Kansas, as
reported in the news columns of Tho
Canadian yesterday. A charge of assault, the arrest of the victim, his Incarceration In prison for one week, his
trial hy jury, a verdict of guilty, nnd
an   execution   concerning   which   it   Is
reported that "the man was pronounced dead within 50 minutes after
fhe jury was sworn." While such
summary justice is better than lynching, it leaves the uncomfortable suspicion that in spirit there is little to
choose between such hasty execution
and the manner adopted by the mob
Sgainsl which civilized countries havo
been so long crying out.
The case Is the more striking be-
cause of its contrast wit., the tardy
ami dilatory methods adopted in the
United States to bring to trial and to
the gallows criminals in high life who
have ample means placed at their disposal to conduct a lingering defence.
Without ruference to the color line.
It Is just such inequalities before the
law and in the matter of public sentiment thai give the anarchist his
Btrongefll weapons and make ihe Socialist agitator almost a aeeea it\.
The crimes of the rich are not dealt
with as are the offences of the poor.
It Is not alone thai the mills of justice are in the hands of the money
powers, hut it is a sent intent thai la
Ingrained in the public mind, and M
will lake ;i long ami stirring educational process to eradicate it from
Advocates   Chinese   Labor.
Toronto. August 2.���Premier Walter
Scott, of Saskatchewan, wit,, i.-- in the
city, thinks ihe admission of al1*com
its into Canada is lhe only solution of
the scarcity of labor problem. Whilst
admitting that Asiatic invasion has Its
bad side, he points out thai certain
lines of labor are readily givon ovet
by Canadians to the foreign element,
and work Is being done with good re
suits without injury to anyone.
"We are going to have a lot of work
between the lakes and mountains in
the next ten years, and unless we get
foreign labor there will be great dlffl
rallies in the way."

Mr. Herbert Myrick, the president
and managing editor of two Important American publishing companies,
arrived in Vancouver on Sunday from
Bkagway by Uie steamer Spokane. The
half dozen magazines controlled by
his two companies, the Orange Judd
and the Phelps, circulate freelj
throughout almost the entire union, to
lulling nearly a mi.Hon subscriptions.
Tho magazines are agricultural and
domestic, their constituency beim;
mainly compOMd oi iarmorn and their
families. Ak Mr. Myricl. visits nearly
all the states and territories of the
Union in th eaourifl of hi,*, annual
round of inquiry, his views on lhe
subject of Hritish Columbia proved to
be very instructive. Ah this is his
first visit to Alaska and Hritish Co
lumbia, hl�� impressions are purlieu
larly   vivid.
One suggestion made by Mr. Myrick
was to the efTeci that all arable land
suitable tor mixed farming, whether
owned by the crown or by individuals,
should lie pooled- The exploiting of
the joint property could then lie carried out to much greater advantage
A bureau could be established to answer Inquiries from intending purchasers, and this bureau would bo in
a position to offer great range1 of
choice in land and to meet the requirements of the purchasers much
more exacliy than they were ever mel
at present except by good luck. The
control of ihese great bodies of bind
would also justify the employment of
itinerant lecturers and the press in
the country to the s'luth and south*
east of the province. These agencies
would be too cosily for individuals or
small groups of owners of land; but
the burden could be easily borne by
the |mji ' As far as he himself was
concerned, the publications in which
he was Interested would be available
to co-operate with any recognized body
In the work of exploiting the agricultural resources of Bri'iSh Columbia
He would not touch anything in the
papers controlled by him whose absolute reliability he could not guarantee
to his farmer readers all over the
States; but lie felt no fear,as regards
this province. He had been able to
guide many hundreds of settlers to the
Canadian Northwest, and lie hoped to
do the same for British Columbia, of
whose future in agriculture there could
be no doubt.
have more building projects on hand
than they can find men to carry out.
The Midway and Vernon people, of
course, might stipulate a condition,
but conditions are not often taken seriously from the fellow who is in the
last ditch. If the G. N. R. Ib the buyer
the road will he built as soon as they
can find the time and men, neither of
which seem plentiful to them at present. If it is the C. P. R., they might
shove things along pretty lively as
far north as the mouth of Wilkinson
creek, but from there they would be
very apt to dodge off westward to
Penticton and leave the rest of the
route for after consideration. The
Midway and Vernon people have made
a bad mess of things. In 1902 they
had people who could and would build
the road, but didn't know how to
treat them.
Alfonso is Travelling.
Cowes, isle of Wight, August 2.���
King Alfonso und Queen Victoria of
Spain arrived here today on the Spanish royal yacht Geralda, escorted by
the armored cruiser Hrincessa de Aus-
uirias. Salutes were exchanged, and
there was a great display of bunting
afloat and ashore as a welcome to
their majesties, who will remain hero
over Cowes' yachting week. King Alfonso intends to build a racing yacht
to compete here in 1907.
