"WHITE CANADA"
VANOOUVBRITBS CREATE RIOT ON
ASIATIC QUARTERS.
Windows   Smashed   And Chinatown
Generally    Demollihed -Large
Meeting Held In City Hall
Previous to Riot,
Last Saturday and Sunday evenings
Vancouverites had a new sensation
which has given that city much undesirable notoriety.
On Saturday evening a procession of
citizens formed and marched to the
city hall, where a meeting was to be
The September Rod and Oan.
Extent of ground covered and variety
in snbjects dealt with are the dominant
features of the September issue of Rod
and Gun and Motor Sports in Canada,
j published by W. J. Taylor, at Wood-
| stock, Ont. Fishing, shooting, exploration, natural history, mountaineering,
club house building, how to carry firearms, are only some of the matters in
which all sportsmen are interested
which find places in the pages of this
number. Fishing incidents in Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Quebec,
Ontario and British Columbia are recorded, each one having an interest all
its own, and to those who have fished
in the different Provinces each will
bring back pleasant recolections of days
gone by, and hopeful anticipation of
others to come.   In the Heart of the
POLO CLUB RACES
held on the Asiatic question. Torches t ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
and banners were in evidence and at the j Rockies is quite as delightful in its way
meeting stirring speeches were made ias Nova Scotian woodcock is in another;
declaring that something must be done
to take definite action to prevent the
large number of Japanese and Chinese
from coming into the province.
After the meeting although more
level heads had requested that no force
or disorderly conduct be used, a gang
of men headed for the oriental quarters
and when the rioters got through with
Chinatown it looked like a wreck.
Every Chinese window was broken.
Thousands of dollars' worth of plate
glass lay in fragments; and then a
start was made on Powell street, where
not a Japanese window was spared.
The mob respected the Japanese mission
building, but showed no mercy even to
the little private houses of Japanese
residents. They did not get off quite
scot free, though, the Japanese being
more or less armed with clubs and
bottles, which they used with damaging
effect on a few heads.
As the mob surged through the streets
of the Asiatic quarters, though composed chiefly of peaceable citizens, bent
on seeing what was going on, it was
impossible for the police to tell who
threw the stones that from time to
hurled over the heads of the crowds
into the windows. All the police could
do was to keep the mob moving, and
after a while, to clear Chinatown and
keep it clear by putting a rope and a
cordon of police across the end of
Carrall street���opposite the Woods'
hotel. The fire department was held
in readiness all night and was out on
several false alarms, but one engine
was kept in Chinatown for emergencies.
A number of arrests have been made
and investigations are now going on in
the police courts.
During the past few months Vancouver has been receiving more than its
share of the Oriental traffic and although
sympathy is felt for the Japanese and
Chinese as a matter of British fair
play, the workingman and citizens
generally feel that some action must be
taken to make this a " White Canada."
one living in the interior has not the
difficulties to contend with on the question, but fully realize that Vancouver
citizens have reason to rebel.
Representations are being made by
prominent men to the government and
there is no doubt now that the citizens
have brought the matter so forcibly to
the front, that something must be done
to prohibit the large number of Asiatics
from entering this province. All other
colonies have the right to prohibit and
the same privilege will have to be given
British Columbia, otherwise more
trouble, probably an international affair
may crop up.
and How to Carry Firearms is as useful and as informing as the full and
interesting summary of the new Game
Laws of Alberta. The Alpine Club
records are of value not merely to those
directly interected but also to a far
larger number who believe in the active
outdoor life that is doing so much to
retain our national vigor and will prevent the crowded cities from dragging
us into national degeneracy. The dog
hunters are still at it and no doubt
mean to die game when death may
come to them-if it ever does.-The
Departments are all healthy and the
specially written account of the Dominion Trap Shooting Tournament is one
that every trap shooter should read.
Altogether the number well sustains
the excellent reputation its predecessors have made.

New Zealand's New Tarrlff.
J. S. Clarke, commercial agent at
Sydney, reports that a new tariff is
now under consideration in New Zealand. Preference granted heretofore
to Canadian goods is retained with the
exception of paper hangings, on which
preference will be removed at the end
of October.
As parliament may change its mind
in the meantime the preference covers
nearly all lines now exported to New
Zealand from Canada as well as some
others in which trade may be carried
on. The principal tariff increase is in
the case of boots and shoes.

Splendid weather graced the horse
racing at Quilchena under the auspices
of the Quilchena Polo Club on Saturday
afternoon, which had been postponed
from Monday. There was but a fair
attendance, which considering the
splendid sport provided during the
afternoon was rather discouraging for
those in charge of the sports.
The first call for the afternoon was
the quarter mile open in three heats
for which there were four starters,
Ginger, Rosy, Home Rule late Hot
Stuff and Douglas. Ginger won the
first heat easily from a good start, and
also the second heat being about three
lengths ahead. Second money went to
Donglas, Home Rule unfortunately
being rather restive at the starting
post and not taking part in the second
heat. In the Quilchena Stakes the
honors went to Grey Eagle with Tosti
second, the latter being badly pocketed
at the turn or the positions would have
been reversed. Madrone was the only
other starter in this race. The race of
the afternoon was the one mile Polo
Stakes, for which there were three
starters, Rubber Neck, Tosti, and Sally
Goodwin. The three were got off to a
splendid start and kept bunched for the
first half with Sally Goodwin in the
lead, Rubber Neck close up and Tosti
behind in the inside. At the first turn
of the second half Tosti endeavoured to
get in front but was shut out, but a
little later managed to get in front and
kept the lead to the finish, winning
easily by a good length from Sally
Goodwin. This the last race of the
afternoon was worth coming a long
way to see, and seldom in the upper
country has a finer or closer race been
witnessed. The following are the detailed results of the afternoon's sport.

New Maps of Province.
A new map of the railway belt of
British Columbia, corrected to July 1st,
has just been published by the Department of the Interior. The map, by a
system of coloring, gives the same class
of information as to lands disposed of
by the crown as is given by homestead
or even section. The map in addition
shows all timber berths and forest reserves in the railway belt under the
Dominion Forest Reserve Act.
The Department of the Interior has
also issued a new map of the railway
belt of British Columbia, an edition
which shows all timber limits.

A lawn tennis tournament which has
been productive of some very good
games was inaugurated on Wednesday
afternoon on the court of the Nicola
Athletic Association. Play was con
tinued yesterday afternoon and will be
continued to-day and to-morrow after
noon at two o'clock. A full report of
the several games will appear in the
next issue.
Change Timber Policy.
A change is being made in the manner
of disposing of the timber stretches by
the Dominion in the North-West and
the railway belt in British Columbia.
Until recently the practice has been
for individuals or companies to do cruising and undertake the exploration on
their own account and then make application to the Minister of the Interior to
have the stretches of timber land which
they would designate, advertised and
put up for public competition.
It is said at the Department that in
the past where there was not great
profits in lumbering operations this was
a satisfactory system as it encouraged
and promoted lumbering in a part of
the country where lumber was needed.
It had the drawback of having the
choicest portion of the timber stl etches
put up and disposed of and left the
persons who got them in a position to
control the less remunerative timber
stretches in the vicinity as few bidders
could be obtained for them when they
were advertised and they dropped into
the hands of the first parties on the
field at low rates.

Control Crow's Nest Coal.
J. J. Hill of the Great Northern Railway has acquired a controlling interest
in the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company.
The deal was closed within the last
fortnight. It is stated on good authority that the increased holdings in
the stock of the great corporation,
secured from Toronto shareholders,
cost him at the enhanced prices demanded, nearly $2,000,000 in hard cash.
The shares are held in trust by "interests friendly to Mr. Hill," but Hill's
money alone figured in the big transaction.
The first move made by the new controlling spirit was to dispense with the
services of Mr. G. G. S. Lindsey, general
manager, the reason assigned being
that he was unfriendly to organized
labor and that Mr. Hill had determined
that no differences respecting wage
scale shall ever again interfere with
the continuous operation of the three
colleries of the company. A successor
will be appointed this week.

Whe ��� at $1 a Bushel.
The days have been very favorable
for the harvesting of a bumper wheat
crop throughout the Northwest. The
entire harvest for the Northwest is
estimated at 75,000 bushels. This fact,
coupled with the knowledge that every
wheat growing country in the world
will show a decrease for this year, is
enough to warrant the prediction that
May wheat will be taken rapidly at

be the butt of discordant opinion is not to be wondered at, as
the local journal is usually the
principal means the community
has of expressing its requirements,
and the editor is naturally expect-
to do the talking for all. Consequently, as there are many opinions
about what a paper should say and
how it should be conducted, as
there are people, !t is not surprising that there should at times be a
little adverse criticism.
There are a few points, however,
upon  which   common judgment
should be exercised.    Take, for
instance, the publishing of foreign
or even provincial news.   Should
it be expected that  a  little  one
horse town could support a paper
publishing the   latest   telegrams
from the world over
such were done would the matter
not in many cases be old before it
appeared in the weekly from the
fact that most people at the present
day  receive one  or more  daily
papers, or at any rate one of the
larger weeklies published at commercial   and   industrial    centres
where the facilities for the gathering of the world's news are the
best.   All have noticed that, despite this fact, there is very little
appearing in even   the  leading
papers that is really interesting.
The casual reader glances at the
headlines, reads one or two items
and then throws the paper aside.
We have a few ideas of our ow".
about what a local paper should
contain. In the first place we
think it should contain everything
obtainable of local interest, whether
the matter suits the personal taste
of the editor or not, or whether
or not it suits the taste of every
individual reader. The community
must be considered, and it is not
the office of the editor to force his
likes and dislikes upon anybody.
Secondly, it should be characterized by loyalty. It should have
one purpose only, and that to for
ward the place it represents in
every honorable way.

Banking Methods.
John T. P. Knight, secretary-treasurer of the Canadian Bankers' Association and manager of the Montreal
clearing-house, interviewed at Winnipeg regarding his views on the financial
stringency, said:
"The Montreal Gazette in an editorial last week very ably dealt with the
Cobbler Critics, as the writer dubbed
them, who have been and are clamoring
for the return to Canada of the reserve
fund very properly kept in New York
and elsewhere.
" If foolish people are permitted to
control the policy of our chartered
banks and allowed to force the employment of this money in Canada, they
would cause more financial worry and
trouble within the Dominion than has
ever been experienced within my reflection."
Mr. Knight seemed strongly of the
opinion that call loans in Canada could
not be realized upon in case of
emergency. Therefore the term "call"
was a misnomer. Money lent under
similar circumstances in the United
States could be obtained for immediate
use, being covered by such securities as
could be realized on at once. When
there was depression in Canada its securities would naturally be unrealizable,
and the banks could not obtain the
necessary money to satisfy the demands of the depositors.

This little story comes from the South.
The first slice of the goose had been
cut, and the negro minister, who had
been invited to dine, looked at it with
as keen anticipation hs was displayed
in the faces around him.
" Dat's as fine a goose as I ever saw,
Brudder Williams," he said to his host.
"Where did you get such a fine one?"
"Well, now, Mistah Rawley," said
the carver of the goose, with a sudden
access of dignity, " when you preach a
special good sermon I never axes you
where you got it. Seems to me dat's
a triv'al matter anyway."
