Mr. Smith said that ns the mutter in | n,ons warB entirely ignorant of the dls-
one form or other had previously come I abilities under whieh they Buffered, and
beiore the congress, lie tell he was right there was much room 'for discussion
in assuming that most of the delegates among them on this question. His
hud some acquaintance with the ques-1 presence at the Congress was an earnest
tion, He would speak first of the peti
tiun of the people of British Columbia
which was to be presented to parliament. That petition hud received its
origin iu the trades unions of that province; but the spirit and meaning it
breathed did not commend itself alone
lo unionists. The evil which the petition sought to correct wus one which affected and afflicted till classes of the
community, and the petition, therefore,
received the approval und attention of
almost the entire population in the
cities und rural districts. There was,
indeed, a small portion of the population, but no more than two per cent,
who were opposed to it, and their opposition would be readily understood
when it was known that their pecuniary
interests were involved with uml depended on the continuance of the evil ii
opposed. These people were willing to
sucriliee for the monetary gain accruing
to them the interests and happiness of a
whole country. The people of Eastern
Canada were io understand that it was
not to tbe importation of the Intelligent
and moral classes of the Chinese that
the people of British Columbia were objecting; it, was to the importation ofthe
owes*., most ignorant and most depraved of the population of China; the debused scum of the larger cities. They
pposed the bringing into Canada of
great crowds of Coolies, who were under
contract, the conditions of which meant
absolute and direct slavery, out of which
the contractors reaped a rich harvest.
The strongest presentation be conld
make of his case was from the economic
aspect of lhe question. Anyone who
had lived in British Columbia or knew
the conditions which existed there
would understand that it was impossible for a man to live and maintain u
family under an income of i'.i per day.
lint llie Chinese coolie was willing to
perform all kinds of manual labor foY
irom 80 cents tn $1 a day. This being
so, if capital continued, for its own advantage, to bring in this labor, une of
two things had Inevitably "to result:
either the Government must puss a re*
8t.ricti.vo. law which would meet the re-
piiremcnts of the-v,ise,,.''"r labor must
■onipieiely abandon the field. Then,
again, tfie Chinese coolie was able "to
■ ive on less than 20 eenls a day, and the
ilifi'erencu between what he received am!
what be spent was proportionately
greater, if it wus not actually greater,
ihuu the savings of the white man.
This difference the Chinaman had no
intention whatsoever of leaving in this
country or of investing in any wav. It
was saved with miserly closeness and
lahen back to China. Not only did
these people expend nothing in the
country beyond what was absolutely
necessary for their bare maintenance,
out Ihey would not deal with white
tradesmen or patronize any industry if I
they could in any manner obtain what
they needed Irom their own countrymen. Everything they did was with
the object of Chinese advancement and
■idvantage. This in itself waa sufficient
to make them the most undesirable kind
of residents, for citizens they would
never become, and, while it might be
important to bring population to that
vast territory, what was more iniport-
ilill wus the class of people thut wns
brought. From the economic aspect of
the question alone there was every reason why the iullux of this people should
be checked, and why the white people
hould protect themselves against the
imposition ■ f such a class upon them.
"'hen, as regarded the increase of the
tax, some contended, that it would noi
lie constitutional. It seemed to him,
however, that if it were constitutional
to put on a }50 tax it was equally constitutional to put on a $500 tax. lie
lid not think that a tax of .1500 would
by any means fully meet the necessities
of the cases; nothing hut absolute ex-
lusion would do tiiat. It was necessary, however, to proceed slowly, as it
was not what they wanted but what
ihey could get that they should strive
after. It was uot to bo forgotten that
llieir ideals were ahead of their possibilities, The people of British Columbia were not disputed to go to extremes
and prejudice lukewarm members
I'ailiameut against them. There were
in British Columbia about 11,000 Chinese laborers and 24,000 white laborers.
There were also about 1,000 Japanese
laborers, and these were were almost as
..real, an evil as the Chinese. Thore was
however, this difference between those
from Japan and those from China, that
the Chinese had no idea whatever of appropriating any higher civilization than
their own and had their faces continually towards their own country, They
cherished all their national customs,
prejudicesuud superstitions, an I refused
to assimilate with the whiles. It was
different with the Japanese. Thoy were
eager to pick up all the civilized ideas,
customs and manners they could. Il
was, however, desirable that the term
of their residence in the country should
have continued for live years before they
could lie naturalized,
What he was present as a delegate to
ask was that tho Executive Committee
of this Congress should meet with the
deputation from tlie Province of British
Columbia, and in conjunction with it
Walt upon the Government nt the next
session of Parliament to press for the
measure they sought. The Executive
of the Congress would go as Ibe repre-
sontatives of Dominion labor, thus
showing that Dominion labor
sympathy with the viows of the
or the Pacific Province. The object ol
this measure meant bread and butler b
every poor man  in   British  Columbia
f the intense feeling o' the people of
British Columbia in regard to tiiis question.
Coronado Shaft House and a Number
of Dwellings Destroyed
by Fire.
Desperate Miners Attack the Firemen
and a Number of Men
are Killed.
Leadville, Col., Sept. 21.—The bloody
phase of the great miners' strike had
come. Threo men ure known to be
dead and two others are dying. The
Coronado shaft bouse was destroyed and
four innocent householders rendered
homeless, ns a result of an attack by
parties unknown upon the Coronado iu
the dark hours of the early morning.
This was the first attack mude upon the
Coronado, which in in the city, being
only half a dozen blocks from the post-
oflice and surrounded by residences. The
Curuniula shaft house was built upon a
large embankment enclosed by logs and
machinery 50 feet above the street level.
A heavy plank barracade was built
around The machinery and shaft house
when the mine resumed operations last
month, and the bouse was well stocked
with provisions, Winchesters and ammunition. Beyond assaults on working-
men seen coming from the mine on different occasions, no overt act of violence
was attempted against the mine untill 1
o'clock this morning, when a few bullets
striich the barracade and the men on
guard prepared for action. It was a
night attoct upon the property. Judging from the sounds the firing came
from the east. Suddenly, after 25 minutes' firing, a sheet of name burst out
followed by a terrible detonation, theN
attacking using dynamite. The fire.i.
then seemed to slack op slightly.
Occasionally ti bullet went through tiio
air and then a sheet of flame was seen
irom Eight or Ninth streets, and it was
evident an attempt was being made to
lire the property at the east engine
house, and several tanks uf fuel oil, and
the attack was concentrated at this
point. There was a sheet of flame and
a sputtering as though of powder, and
the engine room was in flames. A few
moments later and the clang of fire engines was beard coming up the street,
but it wus not for them to save the Coronado, whicli was marked for destruction, and armed men held them at bay.
When the hose cart reached the corner,
the hose being unreeled and tlie marshal
and men getting ready for action, three
men appeared from uround a corner and
compelled the firemen with levelled
cities, to stop work. Meanwhile tho
flames grew fiercer and fiercer at the
shaft house and they were finally driven
from the fort, but fought to the last.
They then run over a high trestle work.
A dozen shots were fired, but the men
reached the dump in infety and escaped.
By this time a large crowd bad gathered. ' Hundreds were ready to assist, but
they were held at buy by the rioters
and lireliungs who were concealed near
the building. But, presently, us the
sheets of flume rolled over the building
it was apparent that unless timely action was taken buildings in the vicinity
were doomed. Tbe firemen rallied, for
by this time hundreds of citizens armed
with rifles appeared and guarded the
lire department and volunteers, and all
attention was devoted to saving the
houses In the vicinity. But in spite of
every effort four dwellings on East
Eighth street were destroyed. But
mure terrible oven than the liolocust of
flames was the loss of lives. Jerry
O'Keefe, the foreman, was turning on
water when a bullet entered his side,
lie was mortally wounded, dying in tho
hospital. An unknown man was taken
to 012 East "Eighth street dead, having
been blown to pieces by dynamite. Anil other unknown man was mortally
1 wounded hv dynamite. John Mnhoney,
who was near the Emmet washout, died
iu the arms of bis companion.

FRIDAY - - - SEPTEMBER 25, 1896,
The Nigger in the Wood
Diligent research in the different branches of learning has unfolded to our knowledge many
things that were formerly considered mysterious, medical science
especially, has been very progressive in this respect. Many of our
wayward brethren who in the past
were punished as criminals would
at present, with the world's added
knowledge, be treated as patients.
Only on a hypothesis of this kind
can we reconcile ourselves to the
wild and exaggerated editorial on
the Municipal finances which appeared in the Free I'ress last Monday evening. The usual newspaper method of contradicting such
utterances would be bydeclaringita
a deliberate fabrication, but veiwed
from the standpoint of our last;
diagnosis of the case under con-!
sideration, we are impelled to pro- i
nounce it the periodical overflow
from the surcharged reservoir of a
diseased imagination. Unfortunately, acts perpetrated, whether
prompted by pure cussedness ori
c institutional frailty, have the
same results, otherwise we would
not feci obliged to disprove the'
extraordinary assertions contained
in the editorial referred to. The
supposed "Nigger in tl.e Woodpile," which our contemporary
eives the public a peep at is contained in the following extract
whieh we quote.
"It is an open secret that tlie
Council is to-day several months
in arrears in nearly every branch
of the Municipal service.'' By
turning on an X ray il will l.e
found that this statement is not
borne out by facts. On Sept. Ilih
the Council received the Auditors
report for the previous month,
which, after giving lhe usual statement of receipts and expenditures,
lias the following fool note. "Hills
passed and unpaid, $1,4-29.39; cash
in hand ahd haul;, $796.21." This
would leave on Sept. 1st unpaid
liabilities of $1133.IN, without avail
able cash to meet .hem. When it
is home in mind that the fixed
charges of the City, exclusive of
schools* amounts to about $1,200
per month it will be seen Unit our
contemporary's Several months
arrears vanishes into thin air. To
make assurance doubly sure that
the report we quote from was a
correct record of the financial standing ofthe city we interviewed City
Clerk Thompson and had his positive assurance that the Auditors
report was correct in every respect.
Our query of, were there many
people clamoring for payments of
their accounts, dieted the emphatic
in a worse' condition—if such is
possible—it is in exceedingly bad
taste for the Free Press to be the
first to criticise. It is well within
the memory of the citizens the
hopeless hunt the members of the
Council had at the beginning of
last year to locate the whereabouts
of the "Coon." Neither is it forgotten that they finally had to
spend about $500 of City funds for
the services of an expert to find out
"where they were at" in matters financial. Perhaps our contemporary
considers the services of the expert
a valuable asset in justification of
the expenditure, lie that us it may
tliere is a deep-rooted conviction in
the mind of a number of our
people that the "Gentleman of
color," so earnestly sought for both
by Council and expert is still in
concealment, not in the traditional
wood-pile but in the aohives of the
Municipality. Whether there is
gooil grounds for such an impression or not, we are unable to say.
Fire Alarm.
The little "kick" that the firemen made a short time ago, has,
no doubt, worked just in the way
it was intended—in spurring the
Council up to a sense of their duty
in reference to better fire protection
that is so evidently needed in this
We congratulate the "boys"  on
their success, but   would   strongly
advise them not to repeat   the  experiment, should they   have   occasion to require any  further assistance from the Council.     Not  that
we imagine they   would lose anything materially.    But  that  such
action   might  work   disasterously
among those  of our  citizens  who
have to depend  lo  a  large  extent
upon the status of  the  fire department of our city  for  their  com-
[ mercial  existence.      What   would
j have happened if the  rupture   be-
j tween   the  firemen   and   Council,
| had nut been settled as promptly,
I as it fortunately was settled, is not
I difficult to conceive.    We  venture
i the opinion that within forty-eight
hours after it had become definitely known that the fire company had
, become a thing of the past,   that at
least  $50,000  worth   of  insurance
would have  been  cancelled.    This
would  have  meant financial  ruin
to   those unfortunate   enough   to
, be  caught  in   such a  position  in
case of lire.
And this is why we saw fit to
condemn the move "as unwise, and
ill advised," but let that pass.
We notice that the ratepayers will
be called upon on Saturday the
.'!rd day of October, to vote upon
the "Fire Alarm By-law," we sin-
cerally hope that our citizens will
look with-favor upon this forward
movement, and give it the support
which is necessary, to carry it
through. An alarm system consisting of fifteen boxes, which we
are infomed is proposed to be
placed in different parts of the City,
would be most advantageous incase
of a fire. The horses and hose waggon will be a decided improvement
upon the present style of  dragging

We do not think it necessary to
produce argument, that one class
of our citizens will be as muoh

Despite the almost universal belief that the Sultan is personally
responsible for the recent massacres
in Constantinople, and the equally
universal admission that something
radical must be done to prevent
further outrages, nothing actually
has been done, and it is more than
doubtful whether anything effective will he done. Rumors that the
Powers had agreed to remove the
Sultan have been enrrent, but have,
it is now thought, nothing substantial behind them. The almost official statement that Great Britian
would pursue an independent course
hits had as its outcome only the
presentation of a separate remonstrance to the Porte by Sir Philip
Currie. Of mere remonstrance Mr.
Gladstone says:
"Remonstrance wilh him whom
I always wish to call the Great
Assassin would not be of the smallest value unless it were known to
include a firm intention to resort
to measures of coercion in case of
need. The remonstrances of the
Six Powers during the last twelve
months have not been mere failures
or simple mockery, but a great instrument of mischief, for they ail
along implied that such a matter
can be disposed of  by   discussion.''
So long as any revolutionary outbreak or pretense of outbreak can
be found to serve as excuse, the
organized massacre of innocent
Armenians continues. Tlie actual
perpetrators of the Ottoman Bank
seizure were let go unharmed, while
hundreds of Armenians who had
nothing to do with it were murdered
in the streets und in their houses
without any attempt being made lo
arrest or try them. Two met caught
red handed near the Embassies in
the murder of Armenians were discharged in lhe face of direct evidence. Thc deportation of Armenians from Constantinople continues
without regard to the objections
made liy the foreign Ambassadors.
In short, the Sultan seems to feel
himself master of the situation, and
is doing as he pleases. A British
fleet lies off tiie coast of Salonica,
but no one believes that Great
Britain will use force without the
consent of Russia, France and Germany, and a concert of the Powers
for anything but inertia i« as far off
as ever. Public sentiment in England has been expressed energetically by almost all the papers
—the "Times" is lukewarm, however—by Mr. Gladstone, Lord Kuse-
bery, Mr. Asquith, and others; even
in Germany the press has lieen
aroused to denounce Abdul Humid.
Vet nothing is dune, and no practical plan is proposed to deal with
what Lord Rosebury rightly calls a
question of common Christianity,
humanity, and civilization. The
world has before it the wretched
fact that a homicidal maniac is
defying repeatedly and with impunity all Europe.
Spain's difficulties increase in
number and in gravity. Her financial situation is wretched; the
political trouble arising out of the
unpopular Railway Subvention Bill
may precipitate a Cabinet-crises at
any time; the attempts to put down
the Cuban insurrection are making
no headway; and now, finally, she I
has to deal with another insurrection in her only otlier important
colony, that of the Philippine Islands. These islands comprise)
several groups, and in all number
over four hundred. They lie in a
northerly direction- from Formosa
to Borneo. The natives are mainly
Malays. The trade of the islands
is chiefly in tobacco and sugar, and
tho total revenue of the islands is
estimated at about $11,000,000.
The Spanish Government keeps an
army of about twenty thousand
men at different posts throughout
the islands, the most important of
which is Luzon. The revolt in the
Philippine Islands is, doubtless, of
much the same character as tha
which exists in Cuba. It is sail
that it is being conducted through
a vast secret society which hopes in
bring independence to the islands.
Thc movement is said lo bespreading rapidly. The Spanish Government holds a monopoly of the
tobacco product, taxes the islanders
very heavily, and in all possible
ways uses this colony simply as a
source of wealth, and with no regard for the comfort and civilization of the people. Meanwhile
tliere is littlo news from Cuba. All
accounts agree, however, that the
insurgents are holding their own.
Havana correspondent of the London "Times" has recently written
to that paper that even Havana itself is honeycombed with intrigues
of the revolutionists, and that it is
too late now to compromise by
granting reforms. There have been
no military operations of consequence, as far as we can learn, for
some time. Some 40,000 new troops
are to be sent from Spain before

anticipated the opposition of the
Emperor to a measure establishing
the public character of such courts.
The Minister, as the responsible
official of the people, was successfully opposed by the Military Cabinet, which deems itself responsible
to the Emperor. The question is
thus broadly suggested as to which
set of advisers are to be listened to
in the future. If the Empeaor intends to have advisers who simply
eche his own notions und prejudices, there is sure to be prolonged
friction until one principle displaces the other. The German
people, and especially the party of
constitutional development, will
not rest content without knowing
in which Ministers the real power
inheres. Most of the difficulties
thus far have arisen in regard to
matters of army adrainisrrtttion,

is said to be quite determined to

paramount importance. The Military Cabinet is the embodiment of
his views on this point.

The Congress of tl.e British Trade
Unions held in Edinburgh lasl
week adopted an* exceptionally
conservative programme. It practically rescinded its Norwich resolution in favor of the nationalization of land, and at one time seemed inclined to declare against further participation in the international Congress, where the revolutionary element has made itself
so prominent. Upon this point,
however, the Congress finally adopted a resolution to the effect that
all future international Congresses
should be composed only of. representatives of bona-lide labor
organizations. In a Congress thus
constituted it is believed that comparatively few irresponsible vision-
itries could be elected. The most
important resolutions adopted re-j
lative to the condition of waee- j
earners were a declaration in favor,
of an eight-hour day, on the ground |
that it would increase "the health,
strength, and intelligence of the
workers," and a declaration in favor
of an employers' liability act which
would make.employers responsible
for all injuries to working people
not caused by the bitters neligence,
This last resolution particularly
declared that nn employee's prior
knowledge of adefectin the machinery or any other exceptional peril
in his position should not lesson
his right to damages, but that the
responsibility fur such defects and
dangers should rest upon those
having the power to remove  them.

The question of German competition with Ihe trade and manufacturing interests of Great Britain
has aroused much exciting controversy in the latter country. Ever
since the publication of a book entitled "Made in Germany" a certain
class of Knglish manufactures have
been anticipating ruin to Iheir interests, and initnv statistical returns
have been published for the pur-1
pose of showing the inroads made
on British trade by the cheeper
goods of Germany, It is pointed
out that there is a brisk demand in
Kngland for certain lines of goods
, in which the home manufacturer
,! was supposed to have an undisput-
superiorily; while lien.inn exports
to Switzerland, Russia, South America, and even to some of the
Hritish colonies have very largely
increased during the pasl few years.
These facts have caused n vigorour
restatement of the \iews of English
free traders and fair traders, The
party with protectionist sympathies
have adopted the latter name, and
