both Chinese and 1      ��� to which
we object verj Btronglj is that they
are brought Mere- in a Btate of semi-
slavery, you heard m; honorable
friend from Nanaimo [Mr. Ralph
Smith)  today ual a i of a con
tract  that had  been  male  with both
the  Canadian   Pacific   railway   and    a
coal company whereby a certain number of these men are brought out for
a given time by a <������ rtaln company.
The men are never consulted in this
matter at all, the business is all done
with the company, the wages areipald
to the company, and the employers In
this  country  do not   know    whether
these men receive any wages or not.
As I told the House last session, it an
employer of labor wants a mini er of
Chinese or Japanese, he doea   ont en-i
gage them individually, but goes to a
"boss" and employs so many men at
a   certain  wage,  and   he knows  noth-
| ing about the  wages  they   receive, or
If they receive any.    I consider that
i slavery to a certain extent, and something  that  should  not exist   in    this
1 country    of   'ours  which   aas  always
made a boast    that    we   never    bad
slavery   here.    what,  chance   has    a
white laborer lo live as a wh.ts man
should  and  compete   with  men    like
these '.'   It is all very well for clergymen and philanthropists to talk aboul
, what should be done for file laborers
and  wli.it  the laboring classes should
do, how they should lie elevated an l
made to live a higher and better life
fiian they do.    How may they do that
if they have to compete with men who
live   us  the  Chinamen and   Japanese
live.    Let. any one, as I said last session, follow a number of these Chinese and Japanese to their aonies and
see how they live and they ask himself if any  white man could compete
with men like them and keep a fam.ly,
lor   even  clothe   himself   decently   and
j live  as  a  white  man  should.    It    is
' utterly impossible. 1 do not know bet-
; ter how to bring this matter home to
the  members of this  House than Ly
| giving'them   a   few   examples    near
home.    Most  of us  ar >    acquainted
i with the city of Hull across the river
j from Ottawa.    If you go to Hull you
will   find  that   mojt   of  the  mea    of
that city  work  for  the  E.  B,   Ediy
rencern.    Let us  suppr.se  for a  moment that that concern  was mann-'d
almost entirely by Japanese or Chinamen,   then  where  would    Hull    be '.'
There would be no city, it would not
be even a village.    There would not
be 100 houses in the whole place. The

| these towns, and the pco; 1 > of    the
eastern provinces would Boon realize
that  the  people of British  Columbia
have good grounds  for  the objection
they   make    to    the   importation    or
orientals In   the  large   numbers  that
we >are now  receiving.    Many  people
have the idea that white laborers can-
I not .be obtained out there.   They can-
! not be Obtained until  we  get  rid of
. the  others, becau3e  the   presence  of
i the Chinese and Japanese there    has
'degraded   labor  to   a  certain  extent;
.cheap labor is always degraded labor;
land until we are willing to pay wdiite
labor decent wages, so  that  the  men
.can  live as they  Bhould,   wa  cannot
expect  many to go to the country.
Those who drew up the treaty with
Japan evidently did not think of the
difference that exists betw ion th ��� two
nations, Great Britain and Japan, i
pointed this out last session, Japan
has a very large population, but has
no ouu.de colonies of hi r ����.: ��� i
which she can send her surplus population. Great Britain, on the other
band, has many large colonies which
can absorb all her surplus populati m,
and 1 do not think that Britain should
have made any such treaty as the one
she did make wdth Japan, the very
first article of which recites:
"ihe subjects, of each of the two
high contracting parties shall have
liberty to enter, travel or re.si le In
any part of the dominions and possessions of tbe other contracting  party
; and shall enjoy full and perfect  pro-
; tectlon for  their  i>ersons    and    pro-
1 perty."
They might well Tiave changed    or
; omitted that clause. It certainly would
have been a very great .benefit to all
the other colonies as well .as to British Columbia.    We are told  in aome
' quarters that British Columbia can
look nowhere else for trade than to
the orient, China and Japan. We do
considerable business with other coun-
tries. A great deal of lumber is out in
British Columbia, and I do not think
so  much   of  It  Is   shipped   to  either
| Japan or China.    It goes to Australia,

FROM  THE  BENCH.
When Mr. Alexander Henderson lefi
the bench to enter tile provincial cani-
palgn of 1907 the Conservative press
became frantic and characterized it as
a shani<ful proceeding dragging the
judiciary in the dust; but not a sound
Is heard, not a dismal note sounded
when Sir Alexander Lacoste BtepS
down from tlie chief justiceship of
Quebec io become Conservative <>r-
ganlzer in that provlnoe.
In his initial address bi tore one of
the Montreal clubs iu- showed plainly
thai those who had invited him to
take this course had forgotten how
Impossible it was tor a public man.
Vowever large his capacity, however
strong his brain, to keep pace with
the march of active |Militirs when removed ..'oni the arena tor oear twenty
years, He musl have dug up from
gome obscure corner of his library
the notes of one of his orations of
twenty years ago. When the Conservatives claimed that if they had not
been on earth Canada would not be
on the map, and that the Dominion
would vanish Into thin air if the
Literals ever took control of the
treasury benches. He tells the same
story now and must be excused for
thus living in the dead past, because
he has not had the opportunity of
studying tne development of the
Great West by leaps and bounds since
1896 broadening out more from 1896
to LO? than from 1879 to 1896. If Sir
Alexander  Lacoste  had    studied    the
president of the Cana llan Pa   He rail
way,   uno   was  in   Vancou    r,   made
the following statement
"H Is the Intention of th-j t
to reserve sites tor grain i leval rs on
the Vancouver waterfront. Thla Idea
is being kepi in view In the yard Improvements now being carried out, as|
it is Impossible to tell whal effect the
building of the Panama canal may
have on the export movi ment of
wheat from the prairi ��� provinCi i. Onj
ri suit may be that the v< ry large per-
centage of the grain may - ek an
outlet via Vancouver lustea I of reaching Liverpool market via the St. Lawrence nver route. Under these circumstances we have felt justified in
making provisions for future contingencies, If th- grain from I big area
Of ih" Canadian west can b ��� hauled
here and loaded on steamers, making
the passage of the Panama canal and
landing it In Livenr> ol, onlj ode transshipment being involved, as compared
wiih elevator charges tor transships
ment at Fort, William and Montreal
���I say if this can be done more
cheaply via Vancouver, then the business is bound to come this way."
Tine officials of the Canadian Pacific
railway may be credited with a good
deal of far sightedness In business
matters, and I think they have seen a
good way ahead in relation to this
question. They have shown us thai
the ports of British Columbia are n it
obliged to look to Japan and China
I for their business. But even if they
had, I would say that no matt": how
important the businiss of China and
Japan may he to Canada,  better that.
have done what no Conservative government ever did. In that they have
raised the head tax on Chinese to
|500. I only wish We could get the
government to do the same thing to
the Japanese. But both political
leaders Seem to Ce a little shy on
this question. Why, 1 can hardly understand. It is not verj long since
nearly all the writers in the religious
press of the country took strong
ground against any thing being done
to keep these people out of Canada;
but I noticed that a great change has
taken place within a year or two. I
notice that a change has taken place
In the Presbyterian church to which
I myself belong; and 1f any one will
take the trouble to look at the "Presbyterian Record" of last October or
November, he will see a sensible ar
tide written in a very different spirit
from that of the articles which used
to appear In the same paper. I think
that a similar change is going on in
all the denominations. They are now
beginning to see exactly how the question Btands, they are beginning to
realize I'iial the people of British Columbia have a substantial grievance.
and one that is well worthy of their
consideration.
I do not think it is much use to take
up more time of the House. This question has been   thoroughly   discussed, I
arguments  have  been advanced   from !
many   different    standpoints,    and     I I
think   by   this time   the   House must
be   convinced   that British   Colum ia
has  a grievance,  and  that   the  members of that province are justified in
trying  to   force   the   government    to
