MONDAY, APRIL 1, 1912.
Laborers on the C. N. It. in the
seighuorhood of Kamloops are reported to be quitting work, and the strike
ia said to be spreading . rapidly
-through ,the camps. The men's demands are giving as $3 for an eight
bour day in tbe place of tho present
42-60 for ten hours, and board at $5 instead of $6 a. week. The llrst change
ia a big one. le means an advance in
-wages from 26 cents an hour to 37 ^
cents, which the employers are not
likely to grant, but a settlement could
probably be.affeoted on a compromise
of say, an eight-hour day at the old
day's wage. As for the price of board
it must depend to a certain extent on
tho location of the camp, but In the
neighborhood of Kamloops $6 a week
���If the figure ls correct���seems to be
m. high price for the contractor to
charge, lt is a big proportion of the
men's wages, and In the absence of
special circumstances would constitute
a legitimate grievance.
Th�� telegram published in a Vancouver morning paper ends by reporting
that, contractors say that, if the strike
.continues to hamper operations and
they are expected to finish their work
-within the stipulated time, they may
-appeal to the government for permission to employ Asiatic labor. If such
a demand is made we hope, in fact we
are confident that the present or any
other government will not grant such
permission. Far better wouid it be to
oxtend tho time of the contracts, in
which in any case thero is almost certain to a strike clause. Government
permission to employ yellow blacklegs would be a horrible portent. It
wonld be laying an emphasis on the
""Yellow Peril" that might well shock
the whole province into a violent realization of the gravity of this question.
The yellow peril at present, it is
generally recognized, is an economic
peril rather than a military one. Orientals can work for less than white
men can. That is the whole difficulty.
If we mean to keep British Columbia
a white man's country some raoatii
must be devised of preventing Oriental
and white labor from coining into direct competition; either that or the
-white man must learn to live like a
Chinaman. One way of fighting tho
���difficulty is to forbid the employment
of Asiatics on all contracts let by public bodies or by corporations acting
tanker public franchise. This is tlie
-policv that is adopted at present. To
rescind this prohibition at the time of a
���strike would be to desert tbe policy nt
the very moment that it becomes ef- ,

The Sikhs are members of a religious community domiciled in the Bun-
Jab, the "Land of the Five Rivers," so
famed in Indian history, and all who
lmve so far emigrated come from a
.district immediately surrounding tho
city of Lahore. Their position as tbo
���most enlightened race in India is
.largely due to Use character of their
religion, which in its spiritual influ-
-��noe is no,vise inferior to Chilstlanlty,
and, in its lack of ritual and obfuscating ceremony, gains by comparlsic��i

in the year 1460, al a place near Lahore. Ile preached a monotheistic doc-

largely responsible for the development of that perseverence, optimism

sweet pudding), signifying the aboll-
Hindus. The father of the tenth
teacher, Govind Singh, was executed
by Lmperor Aurangzeb for refusing to
renounce bis faith and to accept the
Moslem religion.
Guro Covin.1 Singh was a born
leader of men, a teacher of great influence and a man possessed of unusual courage and determination. It was
he who organized the Khalsa, the
great army of Sikhs which eventually proved the most stubborn opponent
of British expansion, swearing its
members by a ceremony, known as
"the baptism of steel, and the water of
life," He also introduced the distribution of "Karad Prasad," (a sort of
swet pudding), signifying the abolition of caste. From his amplifications of the Sikh faith came the most
notable Sikh characteristics; their allegiance to their religion; their ab-
horence of revolting superstitions;
their tolerance of other religions; and
their practice of equality. The chief
rite of their faith, in which fraternity
ln God is signified, very nearly resembles the "love feast" of ths Methodists.
As the Moslem faithful have their
salutation,   meaning   "there   is   onlv
one God and Mohammed is His Prophet," so the Sikhs have    a greeting
which is, literaly interpreted "Victory
to God, to Whom the Khalsa belongs.'
Govind  Singh gave to  all the Sikhs
the name of Singh, which means Lion,
and the name was well merited, for, In
the years that intervened bet wen the
passing of this teacher and the establishment of British rule in India, thousands    of Sikhs were    martyred    for
their convictions.      No one who has
come into close contact with the various races of India ean have failed to
notice tbe unusual strength of character which shows in    the face of the
Sikhs, as compared with other people
amongst whom they live.
I    The organization of the Khalsa by
Govind   Singh  so    strengthened    the
Sikhs that, after his death, the Punjab came into their hands.   The king
was then  Ranjit Singh,  "the Lion of
the Punjab."   Ranjit Singh was one of
the  most  remarkable    of the  Hindu
rulers      with    those      lives     history
makes   us  familiar.      His  friendship
vvas   courted   by   the   British,    whose
diplomacy was exerted, at all   times,
to avoid conflict with the Khalsa.   His-
toiians differ in their summing up of
his personal qualities, but this much
ean be stated with truth; that he was
respected and loved by his people, and
that  he kept  faith   with   the  British.
Alter bis death had removed restraint
fiom the Sikhs, they were   intrigued
into war with tlie Britisli troops and
eventually the Punjab   passed   under
Hritish rule.    In the two wars which
were   waged   before   this  eventuated,
the  Sikhs  proved  themselves  foemen
of no mean ability, fighting  valiantly
against troops more skilled in the art
of     war,  and     readily   acknowledging
ttielr ultimate defeat.    From that time
' up to the present day tbe Sikhs bave
been the most loyal of all the Indian
races.    When the  mutiny threatened
to  shake   British  rule   in  India,  the
Punjab   stood     tirm   and    tbe    Sikhs
fought    side  by  side  with    Kngiish,
Irish and Scotch regiments with never
a hint of treachery or a show of fear.
j    During  the last    decade  the Sikh
'has found his way to many places out-
Fide of his native land.    He is to be
j found in the Federated ..Malay States;
!.e is the policeman    of Hong Kong.
| Australia, Canada and the Biitish territories of Hast, West and South Af-
Irlca   have  become   familiar with  bis
j boarded face and his picturesque tur-
jban.    His loyalty to  British rule admits no question, but   in  the light of
'present    conditions,  he    finds    much
| cause for dissatisfaction.   In the various dominions of the  British  empire,
of wbicli India is a part and of which
jthe Sikh is a citizen, the Hindu from
ithe Punjab finds an almost unrenress-
led hostility to his advent.    He is discriminated   against     in   favor  of  the
Galaolhn,   the  Greek   and   the  Italian
| and other scum of Europe.   The Chi
nese and tne Japanese, aliens from
the far east, who hold all things occi-
ental in contempt, who have not the
Sikh's inbred respect for British rule
or his sympathy with British customs,
are admitted to Canada, out, by the
operation of an unjust immigration regulation, the Siivn is now deuarreJ
noiii entering this fair dominion.
Mora serious in its effect"is the operation of tills law in its relation to tho&j
Sikhs already living in Canada, for it
prevents them from bringing their
wives and families from India to shard
their lives in tneir new land of adoption, ln Australia and New Zealand
the Hindu may pot trvael even as a
tourist and keep his dignity, leaving
apart his settling there to some future
age. In British Kast Africa- the Sikh
j has been made welcome only while
his services were necessary ta the de-
! velopment of the country. It is said
that every mile of the Uganda railroad
in British East Africa has been built
upon the bodies of people from India,
who gave their lives in its construc-
I tion.
j Some of the Sikh settlers in Canada are carpenters, mechanics, elec-
j triclans and builders. The rules of
the trade unions in British Columbia,
fwhich are mostly run by aliens, niaku
it impossible for them to obtain work
in these trades. Therefore they have
to take what they can get. And in
Canada, the land of freedom, where
every "white" man is entitled to life,
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,
the Sikh our British fellow subject,
has been taught to expect no more
than a mere license to live.
Even the city councils of British Columbia do not allow the Sikhs to work
on the civic contracts, although they
i employ al sorts of alien "white" labor,
j which  labor,  the writer    is sorry  to
confess,   includes   such   promiscuous
! elements   as the Galicians, the   Italians,  tbe   Greeks, and even   the   negroes; whilst the Sikh, who has fought
to build up tbls sreat empire, and wbo
is helping to develop this new country
by  clearing land,    building railroads,
and paying taxes, i3 tabooed.
It is not natural for the Sikh to ask
: why, while he is allowed to travel and
settle, if he so desires, in Italy, China,
or Algeria, he is denied the rights of
citizenship in the empire of wliich he
'is a subject and for the establishment
of which his fathers gave their blood?
He is not a pagan and bis life in many
I ways reproaches that of his white fei-
'lovv citizens.    He does not believe in
caste.    He has no barbarous customs
Or rituals.    To   him, western civilization, fraught with teachings of brotherly  love,  of fraternity, of liberty of
! mind and body, and such other aspirations and practices as the best of the
occidental   intellectuals  are   working
for, must now savor of cant, hypocrisy
| and untruths.     He is taught that tho
j British flag flies over free countries,
and  in those countries he finds that
he is not free.    As an indentured la-
i borer in Mauritius, in Natal, in Trinidad, Demerara and   Jamaica, he has
learned that, while slavery has been
theoretically abolished, it    still    survives in practice.
In the consideration of this question
It is necessary to sink all racial prejudices,   and   realise  the     SIMi's   viewpoint   and  to  see  the    justice  of  his
complaint.    We  should  recognize  tbe
truth  that    the  Sikh  and    his  white
| brother have   each their boni" in God
'and that   such external difference   as
color, creed, convention and e;i?tp are

Japanese Expedition Was Not Likely
to Have Met Englishmen.
London, Marcli 31.���No anxiety is
felt here as to the safety of the Scott
expedition in the Antarctic, though
the date calculated for his return ls
now long past. Expectation is general
that before many days (or weeks at
the most) word will come from Captain Scott of his Antarctic experiences.
Speaking of   the statement by the
Japanese, who have just returned   to
New Zealand, that they saw nothing
| of Scott, Sir Ernest Snackleton  said
' today:
"Because the Japanese    expedition
saw    nothing   of    Captain   Scott,   it
doesn't follow that anything has hap-
I pened to him.    Tho Japanese landed,
i as Amundsen reported, close to    his
; winter quarters, which   were    nearly
I 400 miles to the east of Scott's winter
; quarters.    Therefore,  unless the Japanese expedition went to Scott's wln-
, ter quarters there was absolutely no
��� chance of their seeing him.
"Personally, I have not the slightest
. fear about him. He is not overdue in
' the sense of any danger because today
lis the anniversary of the day that we
; arrived bacK in New Zealand.
I "It is quite possible, and most
' likely, that Captain Scott has left the
' Antarctic by this time and has been
! engaged in picking up his subsidiary
I party at Cape Adare in the Nortli
'Antarctic. This would delay him. Be-
| sides this he may have, and most
' likely has, decided to make sea explorations toward the west.
! "We may hear of Scott at any mo-
i ment now, and if we do not hear of
I him by the middle of April the   only
��� anxiety that may be felt then is that
! the ship is not going to return    this
year.    In other words,   she   may   be
frozen in at his winter quarters.
"But as regards  the salety of the
expedition there is nothing to be concerned about.   Captain Scott is an ex-
I perienced   explorer,   and   knows   the
[Antarctic    condition*,    ind    lh��    nhnwcal
1 tor   u   disaster   is   remote.      In   fact.   It 1
need not enter into one's mind at this

"The Japanese expedition has evidently not done much serious work in
the Antarctic. The lirst time the
'Japanese went down South they were
badly equipped, and turned back soon
after reaching wbat might be called

MONDAY, APRIL 1, 1914.
Putney, Eng., March 31.���Tlie Oxford-Cambridge boat race was called
off on Saturday after both shells had
become waterlogged. Oxford paddled
clown to Mortlake after being capsized, but the Judges declared tbe
contest no race. The presidents of
the Oxford and Cambridge universities
havo decided to row the event agaiu
on Monday, starting at 11:30 a.m.
Oxford was robbed of what would
have been an easy victory by roligh
water. At 11:48 the pistol shot was
fired for the start. Both crews were
soon in difficulties owing to the rough
water created by the strong bead
winds. Their progress was very slow
and both shells were soon more or
less waterlogged. As they turned tbe
bend off Craven Cottage matters became worse and the Cambridge crew
.eventually abandoned the race before

advise the locals ln time to prevent
them from making the trip. Although
it means a couple of points to the
Senior Amateurs, many of th* team
could have used the time to better advantage and there is little prospect
ol ihem being allowed their car fare.
There is a general feeling abroad
that the sooner the teams put their
toot down on such doings the better
it' will be for the league and for football in general. It is too late In the
season to tako any action, but the
local players mean to keep this recent
treatment in mind when the time
comes to amend the rules and elect
officers for the year. They believe
that lf they make rules they should be
-enforced. , ,

rest upon the driver."
Need  Co-operation.
This is a true saying. It Is Just
that sympathetic co-operation between
the pedestrian and the autoist which
is the secret of smooth traffic progress.
A vague hostility, such as is so
often manifested and felt, makes driving a nervous occupation,) particularly
in the large cities where everyone ls
ln something of a hurry.
Taking tho drivers of Seattle for on
Instance. Granting exceptions to
every rule, It Is to admitted thnt the
automobile drivers in Seattle use
every posslblo precaution to safeguard
the nubile and incidentally themselves.
Far from an ofton cvressed belief bv
the man ln tbe street, nn accident of
nny kind irlves nbsnlutely no pleas"re
to the motorlnt, :<nd hf> Is always willing to concede a little more on the
eiic of thc jedcstrlan than the pedes
trian is willing to grant to bim. Tbls
is the general rule.
Thinks of Pedestrian.   .
He ls always willing to grant tbe
pedestrian his rights and will assist
him to retain them. The fact that be
is- responsible when at the wheel is
always remembered. But when the
pedestrian not only takes such advantage of his common law rights as
come up ln the ordinary course of
events, but ln addition, goes consistently out of bis way to assert those
rights, it makes matters more complicated and adds to the difficulties of
the man ln tbe car.
Even if it ls only repeating what
has been said often before It is abundantly true that only by mutual toleration can traffic conditions be made
satisfactory to all parties.
The automobile driver ls a careful
man. He values his car. He values
bis personal safety, and he values and
respects the safety, and lives of others. Under ordinary circumstances
no accident happens that does not m
some measure fall due, at least, to a
certain amount of contributory negligence, on the other party's side.

For generations Sage and Sulphnr
have been used for hair and scalp
troubles. Almost everyone knows tho
value of such a combination for keeping
the hair a good even color, for curing
dandruff, itching scalp and falling hair,
and for promoting the growth 0f the
hair. Years n<jo the only way to get
a Hair Tonic of this kind wns to make
It in the home, which was troublesome
and not always satisfactory. Nowadays, almost any up-to-date druggist
can supply his patrons with a ready-to-
use product, skillfully prepared in perfectly equipped laboratories.
An ideal preparation of this sort
is Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Huir

hair that is losing its color or coming
out After using this remedy for a
few days, you will notice the color
gradually coming back, your scalp will
feel better, the dandruff will soon be
gone, and in less than a month's truo
there will be a wonderful difference in
your huir. �����
Don't neglect your hair if it is full
of dandruff, losing ita color or coming out Get a fifty cent bo"' -*t

treatment will do for you. All druggists sell it under guarantee that
the money will be refunded if the

New    Westminster,    B.   C.
Mr. .1. JI. Keith, manager for the
Vancouver branch of the Sheldon
Business College, speaking at the
V. M. C, A. yesterday afternoon on the
twentieth century business ideals,
said that in order to do any good in
Hie world we must do things, and
liiat in giving service we got faith,
and became greater and bigger men.
A loading business man of Chicago
h.i:t said to hiiu that the nineteenth
century was ono ol competition, but
the twentieth century would be one
of co-operation. Employers would not
be St-clng bow little they could give
48  wages, but how much.
Mr. Keith designated business as
service, dwelling very strongly on thai
point That man profited best, he
>,aid .who served best. Confidence being tbi.' basis of trade we ha.l to speak
and act in business in such a way as
to create confidence. His object in
coming there was to show how best
to ("e'.elop in order to render service.
Prayer was a valuable asset and It
had been truly said "More things are
wrought by prayer than this world
dreams of." but prayer of Itself was
;ise!e=s without service.
the end will be reached of what id
considered the greatest strike on record in the history of the world. Up
to date the men have set a splendid
record of orderliness and it is hoped
that nothing will happen to mar this
happy state of affairs before tbe mines
1 are once more working. There is, of
course, no relaxation in the distress
throughout the country which can do
nothing but grow worse from day to
'da? until the supply of coal begins
|    Although a week must elapse before
auy   of    the   collieries are reopened,
even if the miners' decision is favorable to a termination    of    the    coal
strike, indications afforded by the bai- j
lots thus far taken are that a large
majority of the men will vote for   resumption of work.   This enables   the
' country   to   face   with   comparative
'equanimity the prospect of a continuance of another week of the industrial
' distraction.
| With hardly an exception, leaders of
the miners are counselling the men
to vote for a resumption, and although
some districts are balloting contrary
to this advice, the figures so far received show a great preponderance in
favor of a, settlement.
Returns which have come from the
scattered coal districts of Great
Britain show that large majorities of
the miners desire to resume work.
The results thus far in Monmouthshire
are flve to one in favor of returning.
Hundreds more went back in Warwickshire yesterday and it is expected
there will be a general resumption on
Monday. At a conference of miners
in Glasgow a large majority of th-.i
men agreed to vote for resumption.
j The miners of South Wales, who
I have .supported extremist demands,
i dow are voting three to one in favor
of resuming work. Out of 20.000 votes
recorded yesterday, 15,000 favored immediate return, and in some districts
tho union leaders are advising the
men to go to work Monday. Seven
thousand miners at South Stafford
who were thus advised have announced their intention to comply.
Commencing Monday, April 1
