That this hiring of aliens is
being carried on there cannot
be the slightest doubt. And
through an agency located
within tlie province!
Is it not time that something was done? The men
who are engaged to work here
are not to blame. They come
under misrepresentations. It
is the man or men who misrepresent conditions to them
and bring them here who are
at fault and who should be
made to suffer. If there is a
law on the statute books providing against such acts, then
the sooner it is enforced the
The reason of this attempted influx of alien labor cannot
but be apparent to all. But
the object sought will fall far
short in the end. It will be
found that the mines to be
worked properly and profitably require skilled miners, and
these are not what it is sought
to import. Having men employed who can" be made to
do the bidding of the bosses
under all circumstances and
just because such is the case
does not prove profitable to
stockholders, unless those employed combine with the sacrifice of their God-given rights
and liberties, the ability to do
thc work. This combination
is seldom found. Whajt we
have said will be found the
case in all mining camps and
Rossland will be no exception.
But we believe some people
would adopt any plan or
means to show their antipathy
to organized labor, even at
thc expense of their employers-the stockholders.

city, goes to the mines and is
extended every courtesy, even
permitted at times to talk to
the men while working, thus
causing delay. But a resident
of the city, paying his share
of taxes and assisting in the
upbuilding of the town, may
not stand upon the company's
property and talk to the men
when they are through with
their work and on their way
to their separate homes. Ami
this because lit: is appointed

wonderful world with some
truly wonderful inconsistencies.
On Thursday 500 Chinamen arrived at Victoria
direct from the Orient,
coming on the C. P, R. steamship Empress of China. The
C. P. R. put up the sum of
$50,000 with the government
as a guarantee for the head
tax. It is said some of these
will go to Mexico and others
to the United States, but we
wager the majority will remain in British Columbia.
This is news of a most cheering nature. And the corporations are putting up thi* head
tax, too. We had an idea
this tax was to be paid by the
Chinamen, but it appears
otherwise. The C. 1'. R. values a Chinaman very high,
far more than they do a large
number of their white employes. Is it any wonder that
white labor are circulating petitions in an attempt to secure
homes where they will not be
compelled to enter their labor
in competition with Chinese
an.l Japanese.

Union    Colliery   Company   Employa
Morn Asiatics
Ibe Naniiiino lloralil tfives Ibe following with reference to tbe work ot the
Chinese commission in Cumberland
the fore part of tlie week:
The takiug of evitlencc occupied almost all tbe time tbe commission
was iu Cumberland. One of the most
important witnetses was Frank Little,
who gave evidence strongly in favor of
the Chinese. Mr. Dunsiuuir's experiments, such as lum.in,; out white
labor to this country when there were
plenty of Chinese here, were all nonsense. The white man wbo could not
hold his own with any Chinaman should
get ont of the country.
Mr. Matthews, the mantger ol tbe
Union Colliery company, amured tbe
commissioner! that there was no feeling against the Chlnete it. Cumberland.
Commissioner Clute asked if that were
to, why had tbe while men made so
little effort to put out the fire. Mr.
Matthews said the men were afraid to
make themselves unpopular. He
admitted it was an nnpleasnot incident.
Again cime Commissioner dole's insistent, "Why?" He wanted to know
if everybody loved the Chinese why It
ihould be an unpopular thing to help
them lo pul Iheir fire out. And Mr.
Matthews opened not bis mouth.
Further examined. Mr. Matthews laid
that he did not care about the color ol
men he employed so long as tbey done
the work.
E. Roe, accoontant  at Grant k Co's
u, mill, handed in a statement, ihuw-
uig the number of men employed ol the
white and Mongolian races. He bad no
opinion to oflcr as to thc desirability ol
tbe Asiatics.
T. Comcrlonl. tailor, gave his experience of Chinese competition in bis own
line. He had worked underground at
one timr. and he waa itiongly of Ihe
opinion that the Cbineie were unsafe
there.   He   bad   beard   mtny  minen
| talking   among     th.-m-clv.-e   -iy     the
i lame.
James Certhew, mayor of Cumberland, a contractor, waa non-committal,
but he went as far ei to lay that he
thought there were quite enough Chinese
in tbe country now.

a statement of statistics, lie raid be

land, arriving Sunday.
Mr. l'ettipiece is loud in hi*, praise!
of the Lardeau country. He eayi they
have .tut as good mines as can he found
anywhere and they are just as numerous. Lack of railway faeilitiee baa been
a handicap to the proper development
of mineral resources ir that dlitriet, but
hopes were entertained that this will
be overcome the preient year. There
will he a large influx of capital in the
Lardeau as soon as the railroad geos
through and property will rapidly advance in raise.
Mr. Pettiplece hai great laith in the
luture of F'erguaon. It is located In tbe
heart ol one of the belt mineral belts in
tbe province and cannot fail ti oome to
the front ai a producer ai soon as
proper facilities are provided.

Commoners and Plutocrata.
The dictionaries tell us that a "commoner" is one nl the common people,
us diatingullhed from the titled class.
Having no titled Olatti no aristocracy,
iiiili whom shall we i ompnre u mnn In
order to  see    whether or  nol  be is a

The plain people .ire lift nn css.inly
coinmiiners: tbey are diltlngullhed by
nothing except the abttnee of oitenta-
tion. Tbe plain people may be rich or
poor, educated or ignorant; they mny
be more or leis worthy. As a mutter of
fact, the plain people comprehend all
lorts and condition ol men, und whereaB
to "common people" suggests merely
the mass; (be term carries wilh It no
cdium, antl implies the existence of no
contrast with a defined higher claie of
special privileges.
How, indeed, can there be any classes
in a county where any line that should
be attempted to be drawn between them
would be quickly tended out of sight
by Ihe feet of those pressing upward by
Intelligence, capacity and wealth,
"virtue and talents?" There can be no
daises in a connty where lhe commoner
ot yesterday is tbe statesmen, capilal-

And great hirm may !»■ done practically im! racially by Ihe propagation of the
idea that the people of the 1'nited
Slatee are divided inlo any other classes
but these two, the worthy and tbe unworthy; those who have "virtue nnd
Ulenls" nnd those wbo lack thcie
characteristics. Even in tbe most
democratic ol Europetn countries.
England, the ion of » farmer is dii-

to occupy a higher social poniinu. The
idea of dais or caste, in a form somewhat modified, is ts firmly held in
England today ai it wis ever held.
Hereon tl.e other band, the greatest
encouragement lo effort and improvement hat been Ibe knowledge thai tbe
