.To understand the bitterness of Asiatic race, antagonism ,on the Pacific
coaatQit is ..necessary to. realize-that
while the number of Chinese in the Far
West declined during the census decade
of 1890-1900 the1 Japanese increased six*
fold in that period, the number in'the
nation'mounting from14,899 to 86,000,
of, whom 10,151 .were concentrated in
California (an.increase from .1,147), 8l,»
ill iu Hawaii, 5,617 in Washington and

. Of the Chinese population of 119,050
in 1900,'thou.rh the number in California
lind decreased'from'72,472, it was yet
..45,753, 'or1 more than 40 per cent."- of all
,the Chinese iii the United States. The
Chinese' in Oregon iu 1900 numbered
10,C97, in -Aliu-ka 3,116 and in Hawaii
*. '20,767.   New York had -7,170.'      ;
Tlie questions raised by Asiatic immigration havo become aeuto- in -the'
Transvaal,' where," following the ordi'
nance of 1904 allowing the importation
of coolies to"work in the, mines, 43;-191
, were brought in .within a year. Since
1905,permits for this class of immigration
have been.refused and the Transvaal
Parliament has passed a law looking to
the eventual exclusion, of .all- Asiatics,
including Hindoos—despite,their status
" as British subjects—along-with Chinese
, ,and Japanese.;;,-, ..■.■• -v.;* '..'"_... yy

population and.outnumber:the, 97,000
Europeans, Mongolians have been excluded from Australia and New Zealand.
These British colonies, in the words of
" the,"London Telegraph";of July 10th
last,  are "determined to keep* their
».  several countries  to  themselves, and
prepared to'^make aiiy .sacrifice,'.'1 to
that end: Canada, by the,"act. of;'l903,
imposes a head tax of $500 on all Chinamen entering the Dominion.. j,.-?.:,
Movements of India's teeming people
Buch as caused the riot at' Bellinguam,
Wash.;' have only recently begun to
affect this country. By the census of
1900 the Hindoos, of tho United States
numbered only 2,069. Within tho last
few years their entrance into the Canadian Northwest has been encouraged
by employers of labor.-In thoTransvaal,
according to a recent statement in the
British Parliament, the British" Indian
population of the colony numbers about
10,000, the majority "of wliom are shopkeepers, street venders, jewelers, tailors and market gardeners. Virtually
ndno'of the.Hindoos\ot theJTransva'al
are coolies, miners or mechanics.      "'''
British opinion regarding tho inroads
of Oriental populations 'in 'the'" colonics
is now tempered by the uglv fact of the
Vancouver riots. It is "significant of
the real attitude of the nation that the

I, A: E. Watts, hereby challenge Sir

indicated by the attached resolution
and thereby show their desire that
political campaigns, shall be conducted
decently and honestly, and that in
futuro thoy will prosecute offenders and
see that justice ia effectually applied,
and thereby cleanse Canada of the foul
blot they have put upon'her fair name.
io prove:my sincerity aiid to shield
a part of British Columbia from the
shameful stigma, the crying disgrace of
Canada which makes her appear'as a
harlot among the clean nations of the
earth, I will offer 85,000.00.reward foi;

The Newest Methods In House Oecora-
'.-■ tions.        ,    i
Taueled walls! were never cpusiderecl
sniartor than now, nor more 'pnu'tlcal
'for the average Hut or apartment, for
housewives, especially the progressive
ones', _ realize that Avails so decorated
make a  room  much more attractive
■than papers with crowns or borders
and, Incidentally, that richer effects for
less money,-aro*possible.,:-   ;"
There is another desirable feature to
panels, that thoughtful -women have
discovered, and thut Is with the walls
broken in this fashion h room requires
comparatively few pictures, for the
panels are decoration" In -themselves,
niul If expensive paper Is used an etch-'
■ Ing or au oi! painting is really out of
place, for thero Is no background to
show It to advantage, and, moreover.
It actually detracts from the effective-.,
ness of the panel by breaking tho lines.
"Panels," says a well known decorator, "are always effective If  made
' ercn from plain papers, but thc most
.ttrnclive methods are worked out by
.combining'.n plain., background with
striped, floral or'scroll panels.
■'To panel walls, the latter are first
covered with paper, preferably plain,
from the baseboard to the ceiljiig/arid
'on. this, the paiicls aro laid. '■ Tliose
pieces, contrary to tlio opinion of
many.' aro not wold In shapes ready t:>
■-•rat on. but by the roll, and are*'cut,
t.-my   width'or  length  desired.    As a'.
.-rule, -paiiols aro not placed more than
twelve luchcs above tho baseboard anil
oxtend  to within cighlocu or twenty--
"four inches of, tho ceiling, thus ma'lei-.Igor tiiL* background a frieze at the top
"and a dado at the bottom.   The'dis;
i.niL-es between panels depend upon the
wall space, for they may bo either wide.-
or narrow'.   '
•' ,;"If 'the panels are ^either wider orc
narrower  than   the   width, of   a  roll.
' which runs from twenty-seven to thlr-
.ty Inches wide, considerable paper is
.wasted, which makes this style of dec-
fOr.-iting more expensive than  tho'old
'-style/but the panels, if. desired, may
*bo made narrow—just the width,of the
■paper  or   wide  enough   to  take  two
::„widths.        ■ ■' "
•' ••Panels set on backgrounds naturally
need a. finish'-to cover,tho raw edges
where the two meet..and for this pur-'
!pose bands" of paper resembling-moldings are, used.   These bands or binders
-do not come ready to hang, but. must-
n design, that,has stripes" suitable "for
outlining panels.   Some border papers
have two stripes,  while others have
.three or five, that may be cut out and
.used hs molding'for panels."

Continued   inquiries   reach us (or

Tne advices received from,the cen-
.tres'df the mining industry in the
interior,of the province are to the
effect that the supply, of- coke, and
coal from the Crow's Nest Pass, is
once more adequate to the needs of
the smelters and mines; The Nelson,
Trail, Northport /and ,'Boundary
smelters , which „ depend upon ,this
source' for their fuel are again able
to work" at their full,capacity and.
so keep in continuous employment
the great forces of men dependent on
the mining industry for their livelihood, and, to create wealth for . the'
country.   It.is extremely, gratifying
"■ , '4 ' 4
that this relief, so, necessary-to the
progress of these great, enterprises of
the province, should have been se-,
cured, and it is mo^ gratifying still
that'some reasonable assurance* is
given that there will not be - any
recurrence of the conditions causing
the. shortage, which compelled the
smelters practically to shut down
during ihe past few weeks. It is to
be. hoped that when the government
commission, appointed to investi- |
gate the causes of the recent trouble
has fully ,enquire°d into the circumstances "ai.d made its report and recommendations,  it will be impossible
for'auy similar state of  affairs    to
- '*
arise without; at. least,  the    public
being able ,   at 'once     to place1   the '
blame where it should rightly lie.
But it is' significant that th'e'cred-
it for the termination of the recent
trouble and for securing the abundant' frepply which the smelters are
now, obtaining must be given, not to
any 'efforts of, governments or, arbitration boards, or to the pressure
of- public' " opinion and'  the    crying
iieediTof"the country, but~to~~the un-
aided efforts'©! one individual whose
great interests in the smelting" enterprise made it worth his while to
give' his personal attention to the
matter. 'It" will be"'remembered'that

i ,   * -    .-..-*"
mi*u< labor disputes'act to investigate tlie differences between the
Hillcrest coal company and tbe U.
M.'- W. oii A:, relative to 'wage 'schedule, convened . at Frank » Monday
morning. The members'of the board
are Speaker Fisher, of the.. Alberta
leg-islature; chairman, J. "' R. McDonald," "' i epresentlftg ;,the Hillcrest
company, and F. H, Sherman representing. vthe*; mpn. ". Joseph, Kmmerson
of Blairmore is acting/ass clerk and
stenographer to . take testimony..
After organizing, the members of the
board decided to hold the sessions
at Hillcrest and proceeded to that
place to begin work. Daily' sessions
are being held. The inquiry is likely
to'last several day6. . ., -
i At the opening of the first session
Chairman Fisher inquired of . both
bides if they were willing , to te
bound by the finding ol the board.
Manager Hillj of the Hillcrest com:
pany, and John Galvin for the men,
both decliaed, and the investigation
comnienc-id. It" was made to, appear
that'" tbe men claim their remuneration should be based on tbe prices
and wages in vogue in No. 2 mine at
Coleman , where the contract price
for digging is 55 cents a ton, where-
,as ..the",Hillcrest /company claims'- ad-
vantages for its mine which entitle
it td'a pieferentialin the schedules,
the price paid by .the company being
50 cents a ton.. It was also shown'-
that other differences existed between
the company^and' the union rega-*.!-'
ing day pay aud accommodations as
to boarding'house, wash house, etc.
"In the'taking of -'testimony Tuesday and Wednesday; , the- following
.were examined: .Harry Cooper, acting secretary cf. , the local .union;
John Cameron; niiner;, Angus Camp-
id   Pritchard,, miner;   Daniel  Blavin,
..miner; H. C. Davis, miner, Abraham
Dodd, min^r, and- Henry Miller, tlm-
berman. ,'..''    .  -,   --"•
- Mr? Cooper testified as to the condition cf the mine and. general condition's about tbe .property. A concensus of tbe evidence of the miners
was fiv $o ^fftjot, tbafc .tho_j mine was
in good condition and thc seam a
goud ons to work in, but that    it
..was not as"'favorable as' No. 2   -at
i ...        ,
Coleman us to making wage's; as tht
eoal was harder. Fifty cents a ton
was considered an insufficient price.
All contended that from $5 to $6 a
day was fair wages for a miner.
.Exception was taken to -the* boarding housi* and the fact that there
.was no Hash house. As to timber,
were identical at Hillcrest with Cole-
ing, Henry-Miller said the-conditions
man No. 2.  ■■   ,   '     .

cure "deafness,,,and that Is by constitutional remedies. Deafness la
caused by an Inflamed! condition of
the mucuos lining of the eustachian

you have a rumbling Bound or Imperfect bearing;,, and whe» It le entirely closed, deafness is the result,
and unlesB tbe inflammation can be
taken "out and thia tube restored to
Its normal condition, hearing will be

Be'fbrej the .advent "of- packing.- establishment's;. .the domestic trade. - was

has passed, .into the hands " of the

Packers can,, afford to, • and.u actually

( i

that both farmers and packers have

This being tho caso, it is incumbent upon every farmer bringing

According to the statistics of the Patent office 75% of all money is
invested directly or indirectly in patents.
All big inventions have been sneered at and turned down, and stock went
begging at a low price, and hot one person in a,thousand took advantage of
the opportunity to buy the stock. For example, Mr. Westinghouse, inventor of
the now famous air-brake, was kicked, out of his own father's factory. Kelly, the
inventor of Bessemer steel, was called crazy. Bell Telephone stock went begging,
as also thousands of others too numerous to mention.
Mostly all the big fortunes have been made through patents, or brains
as it should be called.

are open to every shareholder for inspection;
, i
Buy at once ail you can afford,
In about throo months' time you may have to pay 500% more for stock.
Stock purchased now may lay tho foundation of a fortune lor life.
Tliis new propeller will, in our opinion, inako a great Having iii coal and
machinery, and on that account leave more space for moreliandiHe iu a vessel. It
will go at any speed desired, and is perfectly sale, as it can he repaired in ease of
breakage at sea or elsewhere without going into dry dock.
