y  our  correspondent at  the
-aiii iho evidence disclosed the
fact thai members of the Union   "endeavored to hold up thc tanners, putting pistols at   their heads, for   shares
in the profits at .ish nf loss of the season."    We  understand   the   reference
to   pistnls   Is    intended   to   be   taken
figuratively,    lie   also  savs tbat   tbe
Union leaders are nol bona fide fisher*
meu. but "agltuto_s from elsewhere."
The   elsewhere   is   ascertained   from
evidence given   several   days  ago   by
one of the  magistrates,   Speaking of
a rough element among the strikers,
he sa'ul:    "There   were   many I'nited
States citizens among this latter class,
and he thought they were   largely responsible for the  keeping  up of  the
trouble."    We quote   from the   report
published in The Vancouver World.
The wealth and   rapid   development
of thc Northern   Pacific   states  have
naturally attracted all sorts of people,
Some of them ofa desperate character.
and many of them lawless and turbulent.     Quite   a   proportion   of   these
have drifted across the boundary  into
liritisli Columbia,    They lire   citizens
Of the United Slates, and of a very undesirable   class.    We  suppose   it   can
be said with truth that they have been
the direct instigators of nearly all the
industrial disturbances that  have  occurred in   this   Provinco   during   the
jiast half dozen years.    It   ia  not   because they are United States citizens
that they have done this, but   because
tbey are had men,  loving mischief for
its own sake and never contented   except in the midst of some lawless agitation.      They   have   done    immense
barm to British Columbia,   If Canadian woikingmen of all classes had beeu
let alone there would have been few if
any troubles, for Canadians ns a  rule
are peaceable,   industrious, aud   law-
abiding.
We cannot keep t.iese mischief-makers out   oi the   country.    To legislate
iu that   direction   would be   regarded
as   an unfriendly act, inviting reprisals.    It would   be   a   violation of the
amenities   supposed   to govern in our
Internationa!   relations.     Hut   if we
Cannot keep them   out. we can surely
legislate   mi   special   lines to  protect
ourselves   against the   evils of   which
they are   the   unfailing   source.    The
development of    his   rich Province is
now fairly uinler way. and   our proximity to  the   lawless classes of Montana, Idaho, .nni Washington will always expose u> to their Invasion.    If
we cannot   protect   ourselves  against
the danger, wc shall iind that our Industrial troubles are   only beginning.
Tlie wit  of Government  and Legislature must be   indifferently small if it
cannot devise some means of guarding
against tin  danger that threatens us.
There should be special   laws against
foreigners   who are  lure on mischief
bent:   aic!   they   should  )�����  enforced
with   tin    utmost   rigor  and  on   the
est roles nf evidence.
of infinite value to the Em-
nor, it may be repeated, do
vc believe such a course waa ever
iintcmplated. ln the case of Cana-
lians, at any rate, it would prove of
little service, for they have a country
of their own that suits them much
better than Soutli Africa ever could.
AN   UNSOLICITED   OPINION   OF
The Waverley Hotel
Some returns  of the   I'nited   States
census   have   been   made   public,   audi
among them two that have been eagerly
awaited by multitudes of the  population.    In 1800 the live  boroughs   that
now   constitute   New York City   contained a population   of  3,500,50] ; thc
population now 18 3,437,202.      Chicago
has been hoping and boasting   that   it
would show a population of   over two
millions,    and    thus    demonstrate     a
growth   that   would   put   it   in   advance of New York in another  decade
or two.    The census gives it a population of 1,098,576, showing  a  ratio  of
increase not much   greater than   tbat
of its rival.    The disappointment of
Chicago must be painful.     Its growth
heretofore has been phenomenal; now
it is  little   more   than   normal, aud
there is no prospect thnt   it will   ever
again   be anything else,     it has  shot
its bolt,   and  must  now sink   to   the
level of ordinary cities.
The   Victoria  Times   has  scored   a
point that must count  heavily in the
game.    It has dug up out of the rubbish  heap of three  decades   ago   that
great Paeitie Scandal letter of the late
Sir George B, Cartler, and published
it.    What  this  generation   has to do
with   tbe  political   trickeries of   the
last, practised   by   men  who are dead
and gone, it   would   be   hard   to tell;
but  The Times  evidently expects  to
save the Laurier Government by means
of them, and   as tbe simplicity of the
faith is lost in  its  sublimity   we can
only   regard   our   contemporary   with
amazed admiration and await the inevitable earthquake.
