Ninth Year
THE GERMAN PUBLIC
N
Blame the Government for
Weakness.
GROWING EXOITEMENT,
Berlin, May fi.���Tlm belief has take
complete possession ot the public mind
in Germany that interests in Samoa
have been brutally and ruthlessly disregarded both hy Eugland and the
"United States. It seems that this
view is steadily gaining strength with
nearly all classes. The press certainly
reflects the sentiment with increasing
violence. The Government has done
nothing the past week, either to fortify or to dispel this trend of publio
opinion. Tho Government pross has
been strangly silent on the subject,
Tho Agrarian newspapers press and
many other journals have seized the occasion of the birthday anniversary of
Imperial Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Baron Von Buelw, to severely attack
him for what they style his supine
disregard for Germany's legitimate interests in Samoa, and his alleged obsequiousness towards Great Britaiu and
the Uuited States. The matter of
olainis for damages both in Samoa
and tbe Philippines for German property destroyed in recent engagements,
has also been interjected into the press
discussion with steadily growing excitement, tho assertion being made
that the Foreign Office however, has
(���tone nii'Sii*)*** bn create or fosier this
condition of pubilo feeling. The
Agrarian Dentche Tages Zeitung in
the course of a severe review of Germany's attitude towards the United
States during the pist year, blames
the Imperial Foreign Oflice for
"knuckling dowu to tbo Americans
in every case, even in the instance of
Admiral Von Dlodricha ar. Manila, so
as not to hurt the toolings of Messieurs
Les American." Tho article concludes as follows:
"Only by now showing a bold aud
unyielding front can the prestige of
tlio Empire, which lias suffered so scr
iously latterly, be re established."
The small newspapers and a number
of others blame the Emperor for
showing too muoh friendliness toward
Americans and charge President
McKinley with a gross want of tact in
not replying to the German Emperor
William's telegram of congratulations, on the subject of tbe new Trans-
Atlantic cable and "thus outraging all
international courtesies,'
DEPENDENCY OF ENGLAND.
Tho Friendly Islauds Havo Formed a
Treaty of Alliauco With England.
San Francisco, May ii. ��� A letter
from Tonga, Friendly Islands dated
April 11, says that a treaty has been
entered into between Great Britain
and the Islands. Germany has made
a demand on this government for ��2b,-
000 for debts contracted by Tongan to
German traders. Great Britaiu offered to pay the claim and protect these
littlo islands that Goi-muay is so eager
to acquire . It is not tho iutoriou of
the British at this time to annex the
islands, comprising theVavan.Ilasplian
and Togu groups. The British and
King George 2d have merely formed a
treaty of alliance for offence and defense, the German claims will bn paid
as presented and the islands have virtually become a dependency of Great
Britain.
FRENOH   MINISTER    OF    WAR.
The Now Minister of War Realizes tho
Difficulties  Bofore Him.
Paris, May 6.���M. Oamillo Krauts*,
the new Minister of War, said in the
course of an interview today that be
fully realized tho difficulty surrounding tho olllco to whioh ho has been ap
pointed, but he declared that be had a
porfoctly open mind with regard to
the Dreyfus oase. Ho novor had been
eonnooted with the affair. It is understood that M. Kinutz will cleanse
his departmont of ovoryono who wi'B
mixed in anvwav with Dreyfus. M.
De Froyoiuo't's resignation was a great
surprise to Frenoh politicians but it is
tho general impression that ho was
anxious to eseapo a probable downfall
in the near future.
BRITISH   COLUMBIA   EXHIBITS.
Mr. F. W. Heubach, the tireless and
capablo manager of tho Winnipeg Industrial who has boon at Ottawa, has
been telling The Free Press :
"For the past two years tho Board

benefit of out American visitors. While

the Governmeut would be willing to
pay for tlie cost of the erection of a
building lor there exhibits. It is possible that tbe 0, P. R. will carry the
lumber' fiom British Columbia at a
very nominal charge and the British
Columbia mon aro willing to supnly
tbe lumber necessary for tlie building
free of charge. After leaving Mr.
Sifton bad au opportunity of speaking to Mr. Morrison, M. P., and ilr.
John MoRao, two prominent British
Columbia lumber men, who happened
to ho in Ottawa, and they both
agreed that the idea of having British
Columbia exhibits at tbo fair was
an excellent one and fully accorded
with it so far as tbeir firms were concerned. The details of iho scheme am
to be arranged with Mesi-r-! Campbell
and Philipps of Winnipeg, representing western interests in this matter.
Mr. Sifton also said that ho would
endeavor to arrange with Prof. Dawson, who is now making a collection
of British Columbia minerals for tho
Paris tan, to send a portion of tho collection here."

Clergyman Deals  With Present Styles
of Theatrical   Advertising.
London, May 6.���During a meeting
of the Preventive and Reformatory
Institute lor females held at Exeter
Hall, the Rev. Mr. Mowle said: "We
are living in an age when Christian
work is largely counterbalanced by
Indeoent piotures and publications.
The literature of day is as bad as it
possibly could bo but the advertisements are worse. They aro positively
indecent.
It is deeply to he regretted that tho
stage in the matter of indecent adver-
tisments is the worst offender. Its
pictures are horribly suggestive and
indecent, and include fas* living, yet
Christian men and women patronize
tbe stage, (Cries of 'Shame'). Iu fact,
Mr. Mowle, went on, ho found that
tbe Bishops nf tho Oburcb of England
wero recommending thoir clergy to
go to the theatre (Cries ot "shame,
shame'') and he was bound to say tbat
felt the neod of reformation. The
British stajro, ho declared, was distinctly immoral, and ho hoped tbat a
determined crusade would he oar-
ried ou against it.

Buffalo, May fi. ���At the annual
meeting of the International Typographical Union held iu Syracuse iu
July last it was decided thai: the question of linotype machinists joining the
Union should be submitted to a referendum. At today's session of the
International Association of Machinists, President Donnelly of the I. T.
U , addressed the delegates in support
of this decision, but tho question was
decided adversely by tho machinists,
who, believing in tbe autonomy of tho
trades, think the linotype men should
affiliate with tho Machinists National
League.

London, May (1. ���In connection with
the commercial invasion of tho old
world by America, a Chicago engineer named Bates arrived in London
this wook. Eighteen months ago tho
Russian Government requested Mr.
Bates to make a study of the River
Volga with a view to improvement of
its navigation. As a result tho Gov-
eruinout docidod to adopt his methods
for some S.BOO miles of river improvement and instructed him to construct
tbo largest and most powciful dredging machine that could bo built. This
macbino has just been completed in
Belgium. It is an electrical solf-
propelling hydraulio dredge, of li.fiOO
pounds power. It is creating a great
deal of comment and speculation in engineering and scienflc olroles,
Princo Hilkoff, tho Russian Minister of Public Works and the Belgium
Minister of Publio Works together
with a large company of Belgian officials were present at testl of thn dredging machine which were made on tbe

ON SECRET COMMISSIONS.
Great Britain on rho   Statos Trying to
Abolish Them.
Toronto, May 0���A City paper says:
" In two countries, Great Britain and
tho United States a movement looking
to the suppression of secret com missious is going on. In England it
takes the form of a bill introduced by
the Lord Chief Justice, Baron Russell,
in the Houso of Lords; iu tho Uuited
Statos, information ou tl-,6 subject is
being obtained by au investigating
committee in Now York. Iu that city,
Mr. Croker, the Tumniany political
hiss, has boon ou the staud, as well
as some of his accomplices. Twenty
per cent, of the stock of the Flushing
Gas Co., was issued to the Tammany
Boss, the different holders contributing in equal proportions for this purpose. The transaction was, of course.
intended to be kept secret. Mr. Croker, on his part, undertook that tbo
company should receive orders for 51)0
gas lights. In this way the citizens,
who usod the gas. wero to pay the
bribe at second hand. As Mr. Freedman, a servant of tbe gas company,
got ��15,000 a year salary, partly for doing work of this kind and partly to bo
aide to divide with Boss Croker. Mr.
Freedman refused to say that the
Boss' emoluments from this oompany
wero under $25,000, though he said
they wero not $50,000, When Oroker
was on tbo staud ho offered to have
his arm cut off if anyone could prove
tbat ho had ovor tukeu a "dishonest
dollar." All dollars that are genuine aro honest, and wo suspecr that the
Boss could not be put off' with hopes

bill is a most sweeping measure, for
besides being directed against publio
companies, it levels its prohibition
and punishments against secret commissioners in private trade. Tbe Lord
Chancellor gave a bill a support whiob

Wauts Natioual  Organization.
Philadelphia, May (>.���As a direct
outcome of the arrest of W. M. Jacobs
and his co-cousnirators iu tho big rev-
enuo stamp counterfeiting case, an
effort will be made to at the national
meetiug of tho cigar leaf tobacco trade
in this city May 22 to form a permannt
orgnization of cigar leaf dealers. It is
proposed to formulate a plan whieh
will enable the Government to protect
itself and reputable tobacco dealers
from fraud.
Tho Government was a great sufferer by Jacobs, swindling, but the cigar leaf dealers and the members generally lost a great deal more. Jack-
sou's cutting of prices upset the whole
cigar business. A suggested remedy
which the lobuoco men hope will be
incorporated in the laws of tbo land

CHAMBERLAIN      TO     KRUGER.
A Firmly Woided Demand Made Upon
the Transvaal Government.
London, May 5.���Tho Outlook,
in this week's issue, publishes a special dispatch from its Capetown correspondent,in which it is suited that tbe
British Seoretary of State, Mr. Chuui-
berlain.has dispatched a (irmly worded
demand upon the Transvaal republic
that it must observe the obligations
to tho Queen, as tbe paramount power,
by scouring peace and ordor within
tne republic. This demand , tho despatch says, is supplementary to the
demand for tho cancellation of tho dy-
namito concession aud is taken to
mean that the British Government
deems that tho time has come to invite President Kruger to observe tbe
letter as well as tbo spirit ot the Lou-
uou convention.    It is uot stated how-
far tbe demand takes tho form of
an ultimatum, or if a period is to bo
fixed within which redress of the
grievances of Utilandors shall be
made.
9 Capetown, May, 5.--Tho reply of
President Kruger of the Transvaal
republic to the demand of the Secretary of Stain for the Colonies, for tlie
cancellation of the dynamite concessions, is published today. President
Krueger contends tbat tl e concession
is bona fide, and constitutes no breach
of tho London convention. The Transvaal, President Kruger insists is
entitled to its opinion as to what ii
in the best interests of the republic. Tho amendment of tho concession as asked for by tho British Government, the President adds, would
bo a breach of faith with regard to
other parties.
COMING TO NELSUN.
A Well   Knowu   Artist   to   Take   Up
His Abode Hero For tho Summer.
Mr. H. J. DeForest, of St. John,
N. B., who has made a very good
record as a painter iu oils of scenery,
is now at Vancouver, on route to Nelson, where ho and Mrs. Do Forest will
take up their abode for tho summer.
Mr. Do Forest has just returned by
way of New Zealand, where ho has
been engaged in transferring some of
the beautiful scenes there on to canvas, from a course of two years study
in Europe.
Two of his paintings, representing
scenes on the mam lino of tho O P.
R., are now on exhibition at Neel-
and's Bros., store and are well worthy
of a visit.
CANADIAN   TOBACCO.
The farmers of Essex aud Kent seem
to huve made a common mistake when
they rushed into the growing of tobacco. They did not sufficiently consider whether there would he a market for the increased product. They
took it for granted that because tbey
were able to dispose of about a million
pounds of the plant in 1H07, that they
could disposo of any amount they
might raise, but it now appears that
some Canadian maunufaclurers of tobacco do nor, use the Canadian raw
product at all, while others only u*ie ir
mixed with American, in small proportions. This being tho case tho imposition of an increased duty ou tbe
Amorican raw leaf doc*** not meet rS;p
case. It may bo that bo that it is
prejudice that causes rho Canadian article to be rejected by manufacturers.
If so, tbe romedy for Canadian tobacco growers will be in the education
of tobacco users and manufacturers to
a belief that Canada can grow as good
an artiola as Virginia, or that at
least it can be substituted to a certain
extent. If this is inoapable of demonstration then tho outlook for the
production of tobacco even in the favorable climate of Essex aud Kent is
uot a very hopeful   ono.
SURVEYING       NEW      BRANCH.
A big  force  of C.   P. R. engineers

gaged on tho survey of tbe branch lice

camps with tbo main line at Greenwood. Work on the branch lines has
commenced, so that communications
will soon be had with tho shipping
mines of tho district.

Rossland, B. C, May 6.���International Revenue Collector W. S. Jonps
for the Dominion of Canada, has
skipped tho country with Goveruuiout
cash, tho amouut of which has not
yet boon learned.
Ho had collected $1,000 from Messrs.
Thomas & Griegor which he has not
accounted for to the authorities. Inspectors Miller and Gill are hore from
Vancouver investigating the matter
and Jones is���u i one kuows whore.
The investigation so far shows that
Jones commenced his defalcations
about tbo 17th of March last and it
is thought thoy will amount to $1,000,
and possibly a great deal more.
Tho people who were acquainted
with Mr. Jones' conduct of Iuto will
not be greatly surprisod at this news
about him.
Tho ollicials investigating this
affair slated late last night thut the-
amount in arrears will net exceed
$1,000 and will probably be under that
sum.

Kootenay instead of Nelson? It is
"South Kootonay" in the Record, and
perhaps nine of its readors out of

Oity -wants whatever advertisement
there is iu the name, aud for that reason we venture to suggest, with all
rospect aud a duo amount of timidity,
that it bo change to Nelsou.
OUR SCHOOL  SYSTEM.
Three gentlemen interested in mines
in the Nelson district brought their
families to the City, intending to
become permanent residents, but bo
cause of wretched and insufficient
sohool accommodation thoy wero obliged to send them elsewhere, to insure
the proper education of their children. This resolve was in no sense
due to the teaching staff, of which
there is not and has not been any
word of complaint. It is the great
desire of the people here to have Nolson known far and wide as the most attractive residential city iu Southern
British Columbia. In all respects
excepting tbis one of school accommodation it is fairly entitled to that reputation now. But that one, if cotinued
in its present aggravated form, promises to be fatal to all the others. Tbis
is a very serious matter, and should be
given tbe consideration due to its
gravity.
But what is the use? will at onoe
be asked. The citizens of Nelson are
not masters of the situation. They
may build sidewalks and construct sewers, but they have no power over our
school arraugements; tliese aro under
the exclusive control of tha Government. The Government build and
equip our school houses, arrange the
classes , and prescribe the number of
teachers and provide for thoir pay;
the people have nothing to do but to
sit down and accept whatever crumbs
are offered them. This principle of
extreme paternalism may have been de-
siiablo and even necessary in the early
days of the Province, but wo have
long since outgrown it, and it cannot
too soon be discarded. The schools
should be under the immediate and
direct control of the people themselves.
It is bad enough to have a system of
education imposed by Government
which represses individuality and prevents development ou natural lines, a
forced system of abominable uniformity, which turns out pupils as if by
machinery ;but when to this is added a
paternalism which assumes to control
overy detail of sohool administration,
the position becomes intolerable.
The situation in Nelson is anything
but satisfactory, yet we aro powerless
to remedy it. Our hands are tied.
Local trustees have not even the authority to repair a broken rail in tho
fence surrounding the school giounds,
or to replace a broken pane of glass, tbey
must run to tho Government with
every requirement, big or little. Under such a regulation it is not surprising that our school accommodation
and school equipment should show
signs of neglect. The Government
administer affairs connected with tho
echools on procisoly the same priuciplo
as they display in building bridges and
trails; when they have time to got
around to thorn thoy give them thoir
attention, and if there is money to
spare tho required appropriation will
bo made. It is a detail of admiuistra
tion with thein, just like the thousand
other details with which the business of Government lian to coucoiu itself. This is no way to conduct a
school system, and as long as this
priuciple is continued the schools of
the Provinco will suffer. Nelson cau-
uot afford to have it continued. We
are inviting the attention of tho world
to the advantages and attractions tho
City has to offer to thoso who havo capital to invest iu commercial, industrial, or mining enterprises; we do-
sire to seo it become u popular place
of residence; but with insufficient
facilities for the education of ohil-
dren, families will bo reluctant to settle hero, and some who do will go
away disappointed and give the place
a bad name. Evory ona interested in
the prosperity, of Nelson���aud all
its oitizens are that���should protest as
loudly as possible against a condition
that exposes uh to this risk.
The Japanese Ambassador to the
Court of St. James, Mr. Kato Taknaki
takes passage tomorrow* at Vancouver
for home, ou leavo of absence. He was
spending a few hours at Niagara Falls
on the way across, when the Toronto
Globe was foituuate enough to procure
an interview. We print in another
place that portion of it bearing on a
matter of deep interest to British
Columbia. Should our exclusive law
go into effect the Ambassador does not
know whether his Government would
adopt retaliatory measures, but has no
doubt they would he suggested. This
would not bo more unfriendly than
our legislation, bnt it would make
things very unpleasant. The friendly
relations between the Mother Oouutry
and Japan induce the Imperial Government to urge on tho Dominion authorities the expodiancy of disallowing the Act of our Legislature, and
this is probably what will be done, as
the only effectual way ont of thedifli
oulty. As Mr. Takaaki says, there
is no apparent reason why Japauese
should be excluded when wo admit
other foreigners who are in no way
superior to them.

May Day und spriii'*! Where is
spring V Tlm spring ot our childhood,
the spring of merry England, when
the broad leaved sallow shows once
more the soft yellow catkin, when the
storm cock forgets its wint.'i- wildncss
and tbe ring dove hovers in mid air
over its nesting tree; when the children make posies of the white violets
growing under the hawthorne hedges
on the chalk hillsides, spring that,
in defiance of time and trouble, renews
for 11 little time our boyhood, makes
us feel tho "child's heart within tlio
man's," move and tremble, as Wordsworth felt it when he lay upou the
grass in the spring time and listened
to the illusive cuckoo.
Shall we, we who have journeyed
from a far con try, ho permitted onoe
moro to handle the early song thrush's
alntel of hold hlnc, Mack-spot ted
eggs, to come upon tho fragile wood

Will tho "native born" pardon this
complaint'.' Honestlv we have not
repined without a cause. We, shivering and faint hearted, spent the
greater purt of the last day of April,
1899, huddled together round a lire
underneath a railway trestle.
The morning gave promise of a fair
day but we had b rely wetted our lines
before the chill ico blast smote us nnd
with it oame a biting rain so we had
to seek a shelter. For a brief hour
in tho afternoon the wind moderated
and wo succeeded in creeling a baker's
dozen of fish. Two of them were above
the average size, from 2*., and three
pounds. They were both female li**li

party simultaneously, Such un omen)
it were rash to neglect [therefore we set
off homewards curlier than is onr
���wont. That row back was the oddest
we have ever experienced on tba lake.
With numbed hands and feet we
shuffled home.arriving just in time for
the expected feast We saw uo other
craft on the lako that day nor did wo
hear of any other anglers who had
braved the elements,
The wind blew through the wooden

It was too cold to sleep: the grey
dawn appeared and lo! thero was a
white carpet on lhe ground and it wus
May Day. We had no May-pole bnt
we had our Queen, our little command-
nnt of the household. Poor littlo
shivering Queen; we had to light a
fire beforo it was daylight for tlie
Queen was imperious aud desired to be
carried in stale fiom 0110 end of the

No spring yet and snow on May

Enough '"Be still, sad heart, and

or tho possible stirring up of wrath.
We pray to he excused if wo are ponderous and moodv this week. We
fancy there are others besides ourselves

parsley, a pinch of thvme, and ono

with fresh butter. Hub somo of the
mixture well inside the fish, then
close them up again. Paste then,
with yoke of epg, slap them in a plate
of rolled oats, then fry in lard���not

a chopped onion, some sprigs of pur-
sley, a tnhlespoon of crushed popner
corns and salt to taste. When boiled
let them stand in the mixture until
cold, then remove the skin, ley them
on a dish (no juice please), and servo
with mayonnaise sauce. Wo will not
insult you by giving a recipe for that
snace.
Thirdly and lastly for dinner���
Ohooso the largest fish and copy the
first recipe down to the words "fresh
butter." Plouf the fish well, and
bake them in a slow oven. The following ingredients must be mixed well
in the order they are given, for a
sauce, a table spoonful of salad oil,

A Well   Contested   Uume   ou the
oreation Ground,
The Rughv football match played yesterday afternoon between the Nelson
and Ko-sland teams was a hard fought
and well contested game, though two
unfortunate aooidents rather marred
tbe pleasure. Early in the game Mr.
Sword broke his collar homo and had
to leave the field, leaving Rossland
with but 1-1 men against 16. The
Rossluud mnn played up luckily, however, and not until at tho beginning
of the second half was point scored
when Nelson secured a try, tho only
point scored in the game. During
the second half the Rev. H. Irwin.
equally well known as "Father Put"
and captain of the Rossland team got
a severe kick in the eye, and also hnd
to leave the field, though be would
have gone on playing hud the Ross-
hind men allowed him. F. H. Forbeg
also left the Nelson team to make
things oven, thus leaving the game
with It men against Ki.
Considering the small amount of
praotiee they had had, both teams
played a good game, tho Nolson backs
showing good combination, while
the forwards more than hold their
owns.    Tho names of   the players are :

to reply to his own health, which was
accompanied by tho well known re

got off at Ymir, and five wont through
to the Slocan. It is supposed that
they have come with the object of
stirring up similar troubles to thoso
recently raised in Idaho, but they
will find that British Columbia min-
eisjare a different class of men.
Mr. C. A E. Shaw has just completed the survey of   the   Thompson   pre
emption ou Beaver Creek, a tributary
of the west fork of Kettle River, and
is now engaged iu laying the land
out,in lots, tho place being known as
Beaverton. It is said several thousand
dollars worth of these lots have already beeu sold, the purchasers being
conversant with the fact that no title
cun pass for some time to come. From
this the deduction is drawn that Beaverton holds a somewhat commanding
position in that section of the country.
As it will have the largest circulation in the Kootenays of any issue
of a dailv paper ever published The
Miner's Special Kootenay Number
will be tho best advertising medium
that Nelson merchants have had an
pportuuity to avail themselves of.

DON'T WANT INSURANCE.
The Populist legislators of tbe State
of Arkansas having passed what they
oall an Auti-Tmst law, classify insurance companies under the head of
"Trusts" because of a number of them
having associated to prevent the cutting of rates of premium. Such association is tormed, under this new law,
a conspiracy to dotraud, and is punishable by fines ranging from $2b0 to
$5,000. The Attornev-Ueneral of the
state has declared that this statute
makes auy company belouging to any
rating association anywhere in the
world, liable to a fiue of $5,000 a day
as long as it does business iu tho state.
The people of Arkansas or of Kansas
do not yet realize what thoy nre doing.
If thoy drive the insurance companies away aud are thus left without indemnity in caso of loss by fire, they
will come to thoir sonses.���Monetary
Times.
JAPAN MAY RETALIATE.
That is a Possibility, According to the
Japanese  Ambassador.
Tho followiug is a portion of an interview with the Japanese Ambassador
to St. James, Mr. Knto Takaaki, procured at Niagara Falls by The Toronto
Globe:*
Tho reporter had heard from a supposedly authentic source that the Japanese Government contemplated meeting tbo recent, legislation of tho Pacific Coast Proviuce by severe retaliatory
measnros, and so informed tho Ambassador. "Is it a fact," ho inquired,
"that your Government has determined to sever all diplomatic and trade
relations wtih Canada aud prevent
Canadian vessels from entering Japan
ese ports?'
Mr. Kato answered promptly:���"I
do not. think the Government of my
country haB entertained any such idea
up to thu present, bnt I know there
has boen talk to that effect. Her
Britannic Majesty's Government and
also the Dominion authorities aro now
considering the matter in aa intelli
gent and enlightsuod manner, aud so
tar as t have gathered iu London, the
Provincial politicians in British Columbia will havo to recede from their
position. If that, turns out to be correct it will eud the matter, and Canada and Japan will remain as friendly
as possible in their various relations,
and their commercial intercourse will
not be impeded. That such mny be
the case is my heartiest wish. If,
however, tho British Columbia legislation is allowed by iho Dominion
Government the feeling in Japan will
bo vory, vory bad indeed, and some
such thing as you have spoken of will
almost certainly bo suggested by
tho newspapers and political agitnton,
and, as you know, a Government is
somotimes impelled by tho consequent
agitation which spriugs up to the
preseut, however, tho Government of
Japan has entertained no idea of such
a policy I hope and trust thero will
be no occasion to think about it. "
"You made a protest, did yon not,
against, the British Columbia lnw?"
"Yos; I lodged a protest with the
Imperial Government in London somo
timo ago. Tho authorities thore view
tho matter vory seriously in viow of
tho friendly relations between Great
Britain and Japan, aud thoy are trying to induco the Ottawa Government
to look at it in the same light. The
British Government received tho Jap-
auoso representation! in a friendly
and sympathetic manner, and I am
hopeful that the question will bo settled in such a manner as will not disturb tho friendly relations between
Britain and Canada on tho ono hand
and Japan on tho other. "
JAPANESE IN B. O.
"What does tho Japanese population
iu British Columbia number?"
"I understand about 8,000, which is
uot a very large number. Recollect,
I do not say that the Japanese coming
to British Columbia nre of a very high
oIhbb, but I do not think they aro at
all inferior to some other foreigners
who are admitted to Cauada; and I do
uot think they should ho maile subject
to tho restrictions in question while
other nationalities escape. Speaking
of the Chinese, their action is to be
commended in this respect. They work
very hard aud buvo their money.    The
