—Thursday's Nanalmo Herald,
umbia is Humbugging.
Of late The Leader has had several
ixcollent opportunities for obtaining at
first hand the views of intelligent Bast-
em visitors, who, having spent some
time In this province, were, on their way
back to their homes in Ontario, Quebec
or tbe Maritime Provinces, AinongBt
the many queilloni aaked of them by
The Leader waa alwaya: "What do you
think of the Chinese problem out here?;'
In more than oue caee the answer hae
been more vigorous than polite, and in
nearly all caiei thoie visitor! from afar
have intimated pretty plainly that BritiBh Columbia ia trying to humbug tbe
Kast with its complainta of Chinese
competition. One gentleman who, like
all the others,■'■ insisted-' that -hi! name
ehould not he nae.l for publication, but
who promiied to ventilate' hll, visjwa in
the Eastern pren when he returned,
and then to uie hll own name, aaid:
"Your labor agitators here are a lot. of
arrant humbug!. Tbey talk glibly in
denunciation of the Chinese, and they
eeem always able to get a hearing on
that subject. They picture the dim-
cultieeof honest white labor getting a
living in thia province, Tbey attribute
all the backwardness and stagnation in
businen in thii province to the Chinamen. Like the single taxors they seem
to think that all evils nf preient society
can be cured by ooe simple prescription,
which they posses!; in lhe one cue it is
a tax on tbo land only, and in lhe othor
the expulsion of the Chinese.
"The glaring inconsistencies of tbo
single tax theory have been long ago ex.
posed, and nobody now talks seriously
about that fad; hut the inconsistency of
the labour agitator on the Chinese ques
tion ie amazing. Why, I have met one
fellow who wae alwaya railing againet
the Chinese, yet wore shirts and collarB
that had come from a CbinesB laundry
ate regularly hie three square meals a
day, cooked by a Chinaman,
"Then, wbo nan deny that it la the
encouragement given hy lhe wives of
the white workingmen that make! it
possible for the Chinese vegetable grower to live lu this country 1 Did you ever
hear uf a labouring man'a wife refusing
to tako vegetable! from a Chineie peddler became ehe thought tbat a white
peddler wonld be along in a lew minutes? No wonder your white market
gardeners cannot live iu ibis country,
and that your termors find it such hard
scratching to tnako ends meet. The
main support ol the Chinese lu thii
province ie the white working diss. II
tbey were to reiuse to patronize tbe
Chineie market gardener', lauudryuian,
or assistant in any line tiie CIiHicbb
could not live here.
"Your lawi to a certain extent debar
the Chineie Irom work ou certain ctn-
tracts, but bow oo earth do yon expect
ub iu the East to believe that your representatives are telling the truth about!
tbe Chinese queitlon wheu we who
come out here find the very clan in
whoso behalf the agltatiou is kept, up
supporting moBt generously tbt very
elms they say (at public meeting!, and
in letters to the papers' thty waut to get
rid of? It won't do; you can't fool us
back East with tuy of this anti-Chinese
cry; we limply don't believe it. If you
were in earnest about it you would toon
end it without 10 much noiie.
"The people ol British Columbia have
allowed the Chinese to get a thorough
grip oo the province and it will be no
easy task to unloosen that grasp. At
present you simply cannot do without
their help. It would paralyze every Industry in the province to deport suddenly, every Chineie iu the country.
British Columbians wlll hive to ihow a
little more consistency in their arguments il they hope to make any impression on the Eastern people."   .

"There ia only one way to advertise,
and that ie to hammer your naim*, your

pereletently, eo thoroughly, into the peopled heads thst if they walk in their

Long ago it was considered the height,
of modiehnesrj to carry a leopard'-*) i-kin

many years tbe fashion is being revived.
There are many emar*. patterns in muffe,

A favorite way of arranging tbo skirt
is to have all the fulness to the back,
bringing it in to regularly arranged single pleats. The plain backs, which we
have worn bo long, are slowly going out.
When the skirts are not planted, thoy
are either tucked, or Ihey are irude with
cross-shaped flounces, Somotimea again,
they are piped with velvet.
By a new whim of fashion ermine
tails are superimposed upon mink, eablf*,
and other dark furs, upon which tbeir
pure black looks well. White furs will
be very much worn whtn tbe weather
becomes colder. Stoles, it may bo noted, are becoming more and more (■•.pen*-
live. The most fashionable pelfs at
present are mole-skin, rquiirel, colt aud
oalf, beaver and otter.
Cashmere aud the whole rangeof merino materials are to be greatly used, rb
well ai a voile beige, and a woollen crepe
tbat resembles crepe-Je -chine, wiih
more lasting properties for rougher wear.
The flecked and mix d clot Iih and tstbe-
linea will be used, bnt a fino face cloth
will have preference for smarter wear,
together with the new velveteen, which

To look well, it is ofthe first importance tbat a velvet coat should he well
cut. The loose Russian blouse is as good
a style for them as any, aud trimmed
with sable they look very bandu'jiue.
Sometimes they are trimmed with appliques uf black silk, which if tho design
Is good, looks very effective. In velvet
coats as well as in walking costumes,
shoulder capes of the sanio material are
to be frequently seen, and I hear they
are coming in very rapidly. Sleeves
have many and diverse shapes, and
never has greater freedom been left to
the individual choice.
