Shall Chinese Note?
The effort being made in C.ilifor-j
nia tu secure the privilege of the
ballot  for native-born Mongolians
is suggestive uf  a  similar danger
that is threatening Hritish Columbia anil may at some time be real- j
izetl.    Indeed, in   this  country the
fact of being native-born would not
have  to  lie established under the
law, nor  would it  in  all cases be
necessary, as subjectsof Her .Majesty j
from   Hongkong could reasonably |
claim the right to vole in common
with otlier subjects.
Last January, in order to lesl the
matter, a case was arranged in San
Francisco,and the opinion of Judge
Morrow, before whom the case was
heard, was in favor uf Wong Kim
Ark, a young Chinese who was horn
in 1873 at 751 Sacramento street.
This decision declared Wong to be
a citizen and entitled to vote. The
California jurist followed the decision which Justice Field gave in
1885 in the Look Ting Sing case.
Attorney George I). Collins, at the
request of Solicitor-General lb.lines
Conrad, is preparing a brief for Hie
United States Supreme Court having for its object the overthrowing
of Judge Morrow's decision. Speaking of the numerical possibilities ui
Chinese enfranchisement, Mr. Collins remarked: "1 know theChinese
nature well enough to know that if j
the Supreme Court sustains the
position of Justice Field and Judge
Morrow, nearly every Chinese in
the city will swear he was born in
this country, Collector Wise tells
me thai about every Chinaman that
conies over now represents himself
as having been burn here. For lhe
most cogent reasons," he continues,
" we have refused citizenship iu Chinese subjects, and yet as tu their
offspring who are just as obnoxious,
anil tu whom the same reasons apply with equal force, we are told
that we must accept I hem as fellow-
citizens anil that, tuu, because uf
the mere accident of birth.''
"Little Pete," otherwise known
as Fong Ching, is saitl to be getting
ready to become a local buss in San
Francisco, though he is not native-
born by several thousand miles:
and Li Gee and Lee Hoy, thc slave
trailers who cuiiduct a notorious
female mart on Jackson streel, both
highbinders and both claiming to
he American-born and talking fair
English, are vicing with him fur
this prestige.
lt is doubtful whether there are
over 250 native-born Chinese adults
in San Francisco. Altogether there
are 27,000 Chinese in that city, and
between 50,110(1 and 60,000 in the
state south of Sacramento, according to internal revenue figures, ilul
Little Pete boasts that a voting,
strength of -11)00 Chinese oould be
secured in that slate and boasts they
could hold the balance uf power.
Whatever may he the result in
California, ihe above fads indicate
an organized effort on the part uf
theChinese that may be extended
to this country the success of which
would be ruinous lo wurkiiiginen
generally and miners particularly
in British Columbia. If at the
coming election a candidate who is
an employe of the greatest employers of Chinese in Hritish Columbia,
to whose interests he is pledged,
receives any considerable support
from the labor element we shall
sadly miss uur reckoning as also
have our faith shaken iu the intelligence of ihe labor vole,
"17.dll or Bust."
The United Slates battle-ship
Oregon lias hail her official trial
trip. She has exceeded all expectations and is now mistress of the
seas. Sbe made a maximum speed
of 17.08 knots per hour. Her average for four hours was 16.78, the
best on record for her class. The
Oregon wins a premium uf .'15175,000
for the Scots, being $25,000 for
every quarter-knot over fifteen knots
per hour, lhe contract speed. The
system under which the naval speed
tests is carried on is farcical to a
degree. The coal is carefully picked and a certain quality of water
used. A particular course is chosen and the weather awaited until
the most favorable occasion oilers.
Then the creiv are selected, man by i
man, anil encouraged lo exert Ibeiu-!
selves to the superhuman point by
the prospect of a share in the premium. When Ihe lest is made,
after weeks of preparatory ''spinning," everything, man and machine, is exerted to the utmo t. The
results prove, not, what the vessel
is really capable of in actual service, but what may be accomplished
under extraordinary conditions,!
which will never be repeated.
Coast Seamen's Journal.
The Campaign.
The opposition candidate returned from a thorough canvass of Saa-
nich, Salt Spring Island Mayrie and
Pender Islands last Saturday. At
a meeting of his committee on that
evening he reported the results of
his trip. He reports the greatest
revulsion of feeling and confidently
expects two-thirds of the votes in
those districts. In North Salt Spring
Island, out of 52 possible votes, 4!)
were personally pledgetl to support
him. The meetings held were great
successes; the unanimity of sentiment was marked; the enthusiasm
was gratifying, ami at the close
resolutions were passed endorsing
the positions taken by Mr. Mclnnes
and pledging him their support,
Influential agents were appointed all
alongthe line, and the work so successfully begun will he energetically
carried on till the 23rd. Mr. Mclnnes left yesterday fur Alberni,
where a public meeting will he held
There is one ligure in Canadian

much of that kind of thing with us,

New York, May 23—A cable to the
