Tbc question as to the admission
of Asiatics is common alike to tbe
United States and to Canada. It
is by far the most perplexing, serious and vital problem of the present day because its settlemeut will
determine the civilization, welfare
and destiny of the white race of
America. On one side of the Pacific are the over-crowded countries
of Asia, searching for an outlet for
their sulplus population. On the
other side is the broad continent of
America,with its boundless prairies,
its vast forests and its rich mineral
deposits,all waiting for the immigrant. But although America needs
immigrants, she must have settlers
ot the right kind. America needs
people who have the same social,
domestic and political notions as herself which qualifications the Asiatics most emphatically lack.
There is something even in the
national valor, of which tbe Asiatics
have made so splendid a display,
tbat differs irom ours. It bas au
air of fanatical ckvotion tbat reminds oue of tbe story ot the three
liegemen ot Tiruur, who, when ordered by him to prove to a -tranger
their devotion by committing sui
cide in different ways, at once obeyed. In all the large cities along
the Pacific coast Chinese aud Japanese quarters are to be found. They
live as Americans and Europeans
cannot live; it is not unusual for
fifty or sixty ot them to be crowded
together in a building barely large
enough for the family of one white
man. In these crowded quarters
life may be seen as it exists in fai
away Asia. Chinese barbers, busilj
shaving the heads, trimming the piy
tails of their countrymen, merchants

The Chinaman especially is .
menace to tbe white laborer becans
ot his very efficiency. It is this
that was one of tbe principal cause-
of the recent labor riots in Vancouver. He is industrious, quiet,
sober, patient and always willing to
learn. He keeps to himself, saving
his money with the bope ot some
dav returning to bis native land or
at least ol laying his bones there. It
is this strong national spirit that is
characteristic alike of all Asiatics
Tbe Hindoo hopes to have his
bones thrown ou the Gauges aud
the Japanese is always ready to give
his life for the Mikado. This spirit
is a tremendous power that binds
them together constantly by direct
iug their gaze toward Asia, ami
along with tbe antipathy that exists
between the white and yellow races,
prevents their fusion into the gener
al population. Perhaps it is this
antipathy that is the chief cause of
the present difficulty and where
two distinct races exist side by side
one of tbem will surely dominate
tbe other.
It has sometimes been urged that
the public schools ot our laud will
bring about assimilation, liut so far
the assimilation has been intellectual rather than moral or politic il
The evils of a vast unassirailatetl
population are to be seen in the
Southern states where 12,000,000
blacks exist side by side with the
whites. The Japanese, however,
are far more intelligent than the
negro, they are alive with social
pride and social as; irations  which
makes it so difficult  to  deal  with
The progress of Japan is without
a parallel in the history of the woild
except perhaps that of Greece after
the Persian  war*    It  is  less  than
fifty years ago since she joined  the
great family of nations, to-day she
ranks as one of the great powers of
the world.    In  1870 she  bad  no
navy or mercantile marine, and a
Jap was   seldom   seen  outside  of
his native land.    Now Japan has a
splendid navy; up-to-date  in  every
respect,  75  per cent of the ships
having been built in England.   Her
mercantile    marine,    manned    by
cheap crews  and  engaging   huge
subsidies from a liberal government,
has   ousted  many   British   vessels
that formerly  enjoyed a   monopoly
of the carrying trade ot the Pacific,
Japanese aggressiveness, energy and
modernism is spreading to China,
arousing    the    "sleeping    Giant"
with  immense resources and great
population.    Can the white people
of America be blamed then for looking with   misgiving  and  alarm   at
the vast inrush of Asiatics to  their
country which   is  taking  place  at
tbe   present time.   Australia also
is thoroughly alarmed and   has  already passed rigid exclusion laws,
barring out the Japanese and Chinese.    They realize that a  union   of
the Anglo-Saxons and Japanese can
never be, the two races being alien
in all  their ideas  and  ways.    The
Japanese are already looking with
covetous eyes upon the possessions
of the British, French, Dutch,  and
Americans in Asia.    One  third  of
the  population   of the   Philippine
Islands, consists of Japanese, many
of them being spies, serving the interest- of    the    mother    country.
Canada   has   sent    Mr.   Lemieux
to Japan to negotiate with them tor
the restriction ot Japanese immigration   to   Canada.    While  he   was
treated with every courtesy, entertained at elegant banquets, he was
respectfully told that Japan  could
not  consider  anything that would
tend to abrogate the treaty already
existing between Great Britain and
herself.   But this is only an excuse
The truth is that Japan will   never
of its  own  free will  restrict emigration   from   her   shores.      She
knows that   every  subject of hers
in   a   foreign   land   is   to   ber   a
source of  revenue  and   strength.
Japs are Japs wherever they  may
be, and in case ot war would fly  at
ouce to the aid of tbe mother country,  therefore  Japen's  best   policy
is to encourage immigration. Above
all treaties, above  all  laws,   above
every   other   consideration   is  the
great law of self-preservation.    Japan needs new territory to  serve  as
an outlet for her surplus population

The Market.
New Westminster. Jan. 25���
Yesterday's market, owing perhaps
to the inclemency of the weather
keeping tbe purchasers at home,
was considerably less active than
those of the past few weeks. Plenty
of produce was in evidence in nearly all lines, but the demand was
not as brisk as usual, and quite a
large quantity of vegetable produce
was left on the hands of the vendors.
The auction also experienced a
falling off, there being but few animals put up for sale.
One of the most noticeable features of the dav's trading was the
falling off in the price of eggs
which sold as low as 35c retail.
Some of the sellers, however, who
had judged the demand better,
found tbat it was just as easy to
obtain 40c and disposed ot tbeir
stock at that figure. There was a
large supply, but the demand was
such that few remained at the close
of sales. The opinion was freely
expressed that more eggs would be
on the market from now on and
that the price would fall still lower.
Wholesale price was 35c. Butter
found no change from previous
week's selling from 35c to 40c.
The meat supply was somewhat
short, more especially in beef, the
only exo _jtion being pork, of which
there was a liberal amount on hand.
All sold at slightly increased mini-
mums over the prices ot last week.
Hindquarters of beef sold from 8c
to 8}��c and forequarters from 6c to
6#c. A fair supply of mutton wa*
offering and all found ready sale at
13c, lamb selling at 14c. Veal sold
readily at toe to nc for small carcases and 7c to 8c for large; tbe
small stock finding a more ready
demand. Hogs were scarcer than
they have been for some weeks and
sold at 9c and g%c.
A plentiful supply of chickens
aud fowls was offered, selling largely to the Chinese, whose New
Year, in which these birds largely
figure, commences next week. The
celestials endeavored to force down
the price, but finally toed the marlc
and purchased large quauities, paying from $8 to $9 per dozen, according to quality for the larger
birds, and $5 50 to $7 for chickens.
A lew geese were offered and sold
at from $1 to $1.25 each. Ducks
fetched from $9 to $10 a dozen,
Quite a number of mallards changed
hands at 75c a brace.
Apples were plentiful but the
quality was not of the highest, and
only a few of the best fetched
about $125. The ruling prices
were from 85c to $1.25, the latter
being mostly for Baldwins.
A new departure in vegetables
was the supply of turnips from
Delta, which sold slowly at 75c a
sack. A lew cabbages were also
offered. Potatoes were very plentiful at $1 a sack, $18 per ton tor
