The matter will probably never
be satisfactorily settled. All
parties will certainly not be suited. If the white race succeeds
in keeping (he yellow man where
he belongs, insofar as the welfare
eif the white man is concerned,
then the Oriental will be dissatisfied, and if this is not done we
face a race problem that would

The black man has never been
assimilated in America. An octoroon, in the eyes of the white
man, is still a negro, and the
same will hold true in the case
of the oriental. The Japanese
and Chinese are so totally different in their ways and customs,
as are also the Hindus, that the
white race refuses to assimilate
them. This is not so much a
matter of choice, as it is the following of a natural law. The
Oriental is without doubt making
rapid strides towards national
freedom, and in the ca9e of the
Japanese it must be admitted,
admiringly, that during the past
two decades their progress has
been phenomenal.
The real questisn is, can we
stand idly by and see our own
citizens driven out of business by
the unfair competition of the
Oriental? Unfair in what way ?
you ask. Any reader who is conversant with the ways of the
yellow man, and knows anything
of his life, will readily admitthat
in his own country, speaking of
averages, he has at best but a
meagre living. Centuries of progress and the cultivation of a
taste for better things have rais-
el the white man's standard of
living away above that of the
Oriental, and for that reason the
white man demands more, and
is entitled to more—in his own
country at least   than the yellow
and state that will prevent the
Oriental from gaining a strong
foothold upon our shores.   The
question has been fought over so
much  that great bitterness has for the city from the money ex- i
pended, but it seems impossible
to get free from the loafer. It is
a strange thing that when an effort is made to assist a man who
claims to be in need he is not
anxious to do all in his power to
return value for the money received. In some cases an energetic boy could accomplish, with
little effort, twice as much in a
day as is done by some of the
men hired.

Cattle Rustling
in Carihoo District
A letter on the subject has been
received from Hon. C. A. Semlin
a former premier of British Columbia, whose ranch, The Dominion, is located near Ashcroft.
"That the evil exists to an
alarming extent is known to all
cattle men." writes Mr. Semlin.
"I know of one cattle raiser
who claims that his herd has been
reduced from over 1200 to less
than 900 in a few years—and this
in face of the fact that he has
branded more calves each year
than he has sold or killed, and
that in the time mentioned there
were no winter losses to speak of.
"There have been three convictions in a few months," continues Mr. Semlin's letter, "and
two are now waiting trial for
cattle killing. What is needed
to try to better matters is an active mounted policeman to be
constantly on the move and looking out for the rustlers."
man. The Oriental works hard,
having been accustomed to fighting for his very existence. He
will work as much as eighteen
hours a day, and for weeks at a
time will stay on the job, caring
little for anything but the saving
of money. And when he makes
the money, two out of every
three dollars find their way to
foreign lands. He can bury himself in his work here for a few
years, save a comparatively small
sum and carry it home with him,
and can live in comfort for the
rest of his days.

LONDON.—Belgrade, the old capital of Servia,
is again in the hands of the enemy. Austro-German
troops have crossed the Save and Danube Rivers and
are attempting to make a great drive into Servian
territory. French and British troops to the number
of 14,000 a day are being landed at Salonica to be
sent by railway to the assistance of Servia.
PARIS.—The Rumanian premier, Bratiano, has
given the Italian government to understand that
Rumanian operations on the side of the Entente may
be considered certain, says a special despatch from
Rome. The Rumanian government, however, will
choose its own time for taking the field against the
ROME. That a majority of the people of Bulgaria are not in favor of fighting the Allies, but are
anxious to fight on their side, was evidenced recently
when several Bulgarian regiments mutinied and left
their quarters, singing the Russian national anthem.
PETROtiRAD.-Fighting is still going on in the
vicinity of Dvinsk, but (leneral Ruzsky's troops are
putting up a stubborn resistance and are successfully
holding the city. In the marshes of Pinsk the (!er-

peasants have formed themselves into flying commands, armed with rifles, and are conducting a successful guerilla warfare against the invaders.

Mr. Bowser will reach here on

By-law No. 26, which provides
for the division of Prince George
into three wards, has been passed
and adopted by the city council.
Roughly speaking, George and
Victoria Streets will mark the
boundaries of the wards. Ward
one comprises all that part of the
city lying east of George Street.
Ward two lies between George
and Victoria Streets, while ward
three is all that part of the city
to the west of Victoria Street.
There will be two aldermen
elected from each ward, while
the mayor will be elected from
the city as a whole. It will not
be necessary, in order to have a
vote at the next civic election,
for voters to live within the city
limits. If they own property
within the city limits and are
registered on the voters' list they
will be eligible to vote. The list
for the next election is being
made up this month, and all desiring to vote should see to it that
their names are placed on the
list. Applications should be made
at the office of the city clerk,
John A. Turner.

SATURDAY,  OCTOBER  16th, 1915.
Despite the fact that there is
nothing definitely known about
the matter, it is certain that a
provincial election will be held
in the not too distant future.
Contrary to the expressed opinion
of the various opposition organs
throughout the province, the
government of British Columbia
is extremely anxious to see the
recommencement of construction
work on the Pacific Great Eastern Railway, and the furthering
of the progress of any undertaking that will benefit this
province. British Columbia today enjoys transportation facilities hitherto unequalled in the
history of western development.
Taking population into consideration, no other section of Canada
has ever been so fortunate in
this regard, and no comparatively new section of the whole
American continent ever possessed the railway mileage that
this province has. .till the completion of every bit of work already started is demanded at
once by every disgruntled man
on the street, who has a hazy
idea that he is the victim of the
maladministration of provincial
affairs, and that the legisla ors
in charge constitute a governing
body of the blackest stripe.
Each and every man wants his
individual needs attended to immediately, and if his demands
are not complied with there must
inevitably be something wrong.
In our own district campaigning has been the order of the day
recently, Mr. A. G. Hamilton,
the Conservative nominee for
the coming election, after returning from an extensive trip
through the Peace River section
of the constituency, stated that
wherever he went he found the
people loyal to the government
and firm in their faith that the
necessary money for development work would be secured.
The other two candidates, who
have also made campaigning
trips through the north country,
consider their election sure. If
each is to be elected we are about
to witness a successful ending to
the long-continued search for the
fourth dimension. In other
words, it will be interesting to
see how a 75 per cent grit vote
added to a socialistic majority
vote, to say nothing of the conservative vote, will be made to
produce a total of one.

The Germans are staking all
on a terrific   blow   at  Dvinsk.
Guns and   supplies   have   been
brought up, and even a railway
has been built along the Vilkomir
road to transport the heavy mortars required for a bombardment.
All this activity points to one
conclusion--the Germans are determined that the arrival of winter will find them in  Riga and
Dvinsk,  strongly entrenced and
able to hold off the Russians and
despatch more men to France or
to participate in the campaign
against Serbia.   Doubtless, they
will endeavor to hold the line of
the Dwina and the railway between Dvinsk and Vilna.   This
will secure their northern armies
while to the south they will probably concentrate around  Kovel
and make a stand there.

The annual mineral output of
British Columbia is valued at approximately $30,000,000, the figures for 1913 exceeding that
amount, while the product last
year was some $4,000,000 short
of that of the previous year. The
decrease in the value of minerals
produced in the province last
year, as compared with 1913, was
due to the European war, which
disturbed the metal markets

 . I - Fall and Winter.
Ashes placed against wood or
in wooden boxes or barrels, defective chimneys, fire-places,
stoves, furnaces, or pipes, overheated stoves, furnaces, or pipes
figure prominently in the list of
causes of fall and winter fires.
Such fires are, in the majority
of cases, caused in reality by
someone's carelessness. Furnaces and stoves are put into use
without inspection or without
proper protection. No provision
is made for ashes or for the removal of rubbish in which sparks
may alight and cause fires.
Ashes should not be placed
against wooden walls or in wooden receptacles—metal receptacles
should be clear of all wood.
Before the cold weather sets
in see that chimneys, fire-places,
stoves, furnaces and pipes are in
good order, and that the latter
are properly supported. See that
floors, walls and ceilings are
properly protected so that overheating of stoves or pipes cannot
start a fire. A sound stove properly placed and protected cannot
hum a house by being overheated.
Box<_s,   crates,   cartons,   and
paper are sometimes allowed to
accumulate in basements of
stores during summer and similar
inflammable matter is often found
in basements of dwellings.   The!
furnace is started in   a   hurry
without cleaning-up.   Cleaning-j
up should be done in good time,
before the furnace is started, so
that sparks from the furnace or
hot cinders accidently  dropped!
may not start a fire.   All such'
inflammable material assists fire
to spread rapidly.
Do not hang papers or clothes
on the wal, behind the stove-pipe.
See that clothing which is being
dried is so placed that it cannot
be ignited. Fires caused by
papers, clothes, or firewood left
too near stores are frequent.
Do not dry wood in the stove
Keep the wood-box where sparks
cannot fall into it.
The fire loss in our municipalities during last winter from
causes above referred to was
about one-fifth of total loss reported.
