month. Tlie ground will bo thoroughly
prospected belore snow flics and it is
presumed that suitable buildings will be
credted. This property lies directly
below the Wakefield mine on Four
Mile creek at about the same elevation
and -exactly opposite ilie Vancouver

negotiated and put through by the Grin
of Cross & Co. the local mining brokers
who have lieen very successful in placing prope rties in this section.
Fonr carloads of ore wero shipped from

We have been called upon this week
to bid farewell to the Slocan City News
which has until now flourished In our
midst. According to D R Young its
proprietor and nurse, it has been languishing lor some time past and at last
has given up the ghost and ceased to be
except as a memory. Our hearts are
filled with an overflowing sadness somewhat tempered with the hope that at no
distant dav we will see a great nnd

P E Seeleye of Spokane who was here
in connection with the Alexander mine,
situated on the second north fork of
Lemon creek, started for Spokane last
Monday. On his recent trip to the mine
he brought back with him some of the
finest specimens of high grade silver ore
ever seen by your correspondent. Mr.
Seeleye is feeling very much elated over
the showing. They have sunk on the
ledge to a depth of over sixty feet. The

Because lie don't live, you see;
Leastways, he's got out of the habit
Of livin' like you and me.
Wharo havo you been ior the last three
That you haven't heard folks tell
How Jimmy Bludaon passed in his checks
Tho night of the Pratie Belle?
He weren't no saint- them engineers
Is all prettv much alike
One wife in Natchez-under-the-Hill
And another one here in Pike;
A keerless man in his talk was Jim,
And an awkward hand In a row,
Bntlie never flunked and he never liod-
I reckon he never knowed how.
And thia was all tho reli^iou he hod:
To treat his on.ine well
Never be passed on the river;
To mind the pilot's bell;
And il ever the Prairie Bell took fire-
jV thousand times he sworo
He'd hold her nozzle again the bank
Till the last soul got ushore.
All boats has their day on the Missiseip,
And her day came at last-
Tim Movaster was a better boat,
But the Bell she wouldn't be passed,
And so she came tearing along that night
The oldest craft on the line—
With a nigger squat on her safety valve.
And her iurnace crammed  rosin   and
Tlie fire bust out as she cleared tho bar,
And burnt a whole in the night,
And quick as » flash Bhe turned and Biade
For the wilier bank on tbe right
Thero was running and cussiu', but Jim
yelled out,
Over all the infernal roar:
S'I'I1 hold hor noz.el again the bank
Till tho last galoot's ashore."
Through the hot,  black breath oi tho
burnin' boat
Jim Bludson's voice was heard,
And they all had trust in his cusmdness,
And knowed he would keep his word.
And sure's your born, they all got off
Afore the smokestack fell—
And Bludson's ghost went up alone
In the smoke oi the Prairie Bell.
He weren't no soint-but at judgement
I'd run my chance with Jim
'Longsideoisome pious gentlemen
That wouldn't shook bonds with him-
He seen his duty, a dead Bhure tliing-
And wont for it thar and then;
And Christ ain't a-goin'tobe too hard
On a man that died for men.

Celebration—A Good Time Bad
By Kveryone.
The clouds that for some preceding
diys had overhung the Slocan were
p tshed away on Monday in honor of the
I ibor Day Celebration in Sandon and
t e weather was all that could be desired.
Early Monday morning the patriotic
tizens of that mining centre began de-
crating their street in honor oi their
e-peeled visitors, who arrivad shortly
a terwards over the K. & S. and C. P. P..
Some little delay, common to * all celebration, was experienced in beginning

wail of triumph. The Kaslo boys, true
s-jorts, took their defeat gamely and expressed their satisfaction wilh the fair
chance given them and the courteous
treutment they had received. The 100
v.trd dash proved on exciting race with
a close finish, being won hy Dill of Kaslo.
As an outcome of this race two matched
rites were run, one between Dill, Kusio's
champion, and Charley Wilson, New
Denver's sprinter, and tlie second between the winner of the first race and

Much interest was felt iu regard to
the six-round ulove contest between Sy.

as it had been whispered around among
the knowiiiis'onen tbat the mill would he
(ought to a finish, An hour before tho
event was to be pulled off, the entrance
to the riuk, where the contest was billed,
was crowded by those anxious to be in
the front row when the fistic carnival
began. After au impatient waiting the
spectators loudly cheered the appear
ance oi the pugs. The mill began in a
lively manner and lasted until about tbe
middle of the third round when White
fouled Percy in n break-away. The
referee then awarded the purse to Wilkinson, the finish thus following closely
ou the heels of the beginning.
The two dances, one in tbe Virginia
Block and one in Spenser's Hall, were
both successes although the floor in the
former hall was considerably crowded
at times.
The order during the day wos good
and   no unseemly rows disturbed the
course of the program. All participants
in the sports were satisfied with tne impartial rulings oi the Judges and every
visitor left Sandon ieeling that that citv
was a good place to go to. The New
Denver Brass Band iurmshed the wind
ior the occasion and covered themselves
with glory and flooded the gulch with
The I'iti/.ens of Sandon and tho committees in charge are to bo congratulated
on the success of their celebration and
tbe satisfaction which was felt with the
day by all who visited their town.
J, C. Harris, who has made a success
oi whatever be has gone Into in this
district, is about to invest in a new
direction tbat is bound to be a profitable
speculation ior him. He has purchased
a number of lots in Silverton and will
build several neat cottages on them.
It is said that some of these are already
rented ior good figures and Mr. Harris
should have no dificultv in securing
good tenants ior all. The noed ot residences lias been much ielt here and it ia
suprising tbat no one else had taken the
move just made by Mr. Harris. Silver-
ton has business blocks enough but lew
residences and we predict that a building
boom in tbis line will start in the early
spring. Our ore shipments this winter
is bound to attract the notice oi investors
in this direction and the coming winter
will be an eventful one in the history oi
The history ol thestruzgling existence
and final starvation of many local papers
published in prosperous mining localities
is not a creditable record Ior an industry
so broad and liberal in many other respects, says the Western Mining World.
Especially is this true in view of the fact
that the mines have been most faithfully
upheld and owe the large proportion of
their value aud 6ucceB8 lo the very means
which has heen neglected and unrewarded. The report of mining properties,
t-trikes of ore bodies in mines, shipments
irom smelters, value of ores and mill runs
has been most carefully made, to be copied by the metropolitan review in the
center ut capital, until tbe tide of inquiry
and investment has lieen attracted to the
locality and a general condition of prosperous activity established by which hundreds have been benefited. In many
eases thi-i gratuitions work, which has
cost time and money, has been done faith
(ullv and impartially ior those who have
navar, eaaUtbuUid theJMftauj-toi __. annual aubscrttMion to the paper which has
been the chief cause of their prosperity.
The mining industry owes its promising
condition, ita general activity, theTfavorable state o{ public opinion towards mining, tho investment cf capital aud the
remarkable developement now takimz
place more to the influence of the press
than to any one ot all other influences
combined, but its return for all this
benefit has, as a rule, been most niggardly and certainly unjust.

Paris, Sept. 6.—M. Oavaignac Saturday
sent tbe following letter of resignation to
M. Brisson, premier and the president of
tbe council:
"I have the honor to send you and beg
you to transmit to the president of the
republic my resignation as minister of
war. There exists a disagreement between us, which being prolonged, would
paralyse the government at a time when
it most needs full unity of decision. I
remain convinced of the guilt of Dreyfus
and am determined as heretofore to combat a revision of the case. I do not intend to shirk the responsibility of the
present situation, but I can not assume
it without being in accord with the chief
of the government to which I have the
honor to belong."
These aro the circumstances which led
M. Cavaignac to resign: After the discovery of Lieutenant Colonel Henry's
forgery the government sought means to
reassure the public. The question of revision was broached. Certain ministers
believed the time had come to throw full
light and to establish every responsibility. M. Cavaignac strongly objected. He
declared that he was convinced of the
guilt of Dreyfus.
M. Brisson vainly pointed out to M.
Cavaignac that the revision would be
purely judicial.
M. Cavaignac replied that revision
could only be justified if some new fact
developed to show that there had been a
judicial error and that no such fact existed, Henry's forgery being subsequent
to the conviction of Dreyfus and only indirectly connected with it.
M. Bourgeois, called from Switzerland,
made a new effort but M. Cavaignac
still refused. The latter saw M. Brisson,
the premier, and declared that his determination was immovable and that he
would resign. After M. Cavaignac's departure, a conference was hold at the ministry of the interior between M. Brisson,
Minister Bourgeois and M. Barrier- About
9 o'clock M. Cavaignac's letter of resignation was received. It is assumed that
a majority of the cabinet accept the views
of M. Brisson as the others retain
their portfolios. The resignation of M.
Cavaignac enables the government to decide the matter and it is believed M. Cavaignac's successor at the_war ollice will
aoon be appoinlecTamTa definite resolution taken.
Populace Inflamed.
The Dreyfus agitation is not abating.
The populace was again inflamed today
by posters, printed by Siecle, with which
the town has been plastered. They reproduce two letters which Dreyfus wrote
to the minister of war in 1804 and one
which he wrote to his counsel, De Mage,
in 1895, protesting innocence and denying
that he ever had been guilty of any indiscretion. The posters also deal at length
with the fact that Colonel Picquart wrote
on July 9 affirming the falsity of Lieutenant Henry's documents, and they decry tbe arrest and imprisonment of Picquart.
Pacific Troopa Will Slay.
Washington, Sept. 6.—Adjutant General Corbin Saturday announced the intention of the war department in the
matter of mustering out and retaining in
the service the volunteers.
Among the regiments to be retained in
service until further notice, and the list
covers from UO to 125 regiments, are the
following: First Washington, First Idaho, First and Eighth California, Second
Oregon and First Montana, all infantry;
Batteries A, B and C, Utah light artillery, First troop Utah cavalry, battalion
of California artillery, the North and
South Dakota, Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Indian Territory infantry,
First troop Nevada cavalry, First Wyoming artillery, with regiments from
nearly all the states, including the Astor
Talked Too Mnch.
Washington, Sept. 6.—The navy department has ordered the trial by court
martial of Chaplain J. P. Mclntire of thc
Orgeon on the charge of "using language
prejudicial to good order and discipline
and conduct unbecoming an officer." The
charges grow out of statements made by
Jtfclntire derogatory to Admiral Sampson, Captain Evans and various other officers of the American fleet.

the "mark of blood" the Spaniard has

Spanish people are essentially good-natured. They are singularly kind to children, and their family relations are among

his return from work and kiss his hand.
In ,a way the nation is the most truly
democratic in the world, for it has but
one standard of manners. The children
of the rich man do precisely as the children of the poor. The peasant of Castile
is as self-possessed and as polite as the
"hidalgo." Moreover, they speak the same
Castilan—or, if there is a difference, it is
that the peasant speaks a purer Spanish
than the educated man, whose tongue is
rather Frenchified. There are four languages spoken in Spain: the Galician,
whicli is closely akin to the Portuguese;
the Basque; the Catalan, which is a
branch of the Southern French; and the
Castilian. But they are all spoken alike
in all classes. There is no distinction between the language of the upper and the
lower class. Tbe Toloflan. speaks better
Castiliuu than an Andalusiun.

After 2 p. m. there is a great demand

Thc shopkeepers regard this as a national failing of Americans, and they endeavor to satisfy the craving of the soldiers
for this grateful refreshment It is the
custom in Spanish and Portuguese towns
to serve ice cream in the evening only,
there being ordinarily no cull for it until after sunset. A portion is very
small, quite too small for the healthy
American apjietite, nnd the average soldier puts away three or four platefuls
with astonishing rapidity. The cafe
keepers at first demurred against such
an unheard-of thing as "helados" (iee
cream) in the afternoon, but t*ey were
forced to yield to the demand. Every
freezer in town was purchased and orders have been sent to St Thomas for
more. As soon as one freciserful is made
it is sold, and the work of freezing is
kept up all afternoon, to the great profit of the trade. Here is another example of the readiness of our new citizens

The Turner combination in the Le Roi
won A decided victory in the courts of
"Hritish Columbia -ttst week. Judge Irving, of the supreme court of the province, discharged Receiver Carlyle, who
had been appointed by County Judge
Spinks on petition of the British America
Corporation, and declined to appoint another receiver.
The following telegram, Motived from
Senator Turner, brought the Hist news of
tlie decision:
Vancouver, B. C, Aug. 31.-—The court
discharged the receiver, on the ground
lhut Uie county court judge was without
power to appoint Daly, solicitor for
the 1). A. C, then filed a new suit, with
the Le Roi company and five trustees as
•iluiiitiifs, and four trustees as defendant-,
and asked for an injunction und receiver.
The court declined to appoint a recoiv':r,
saying that he hud nothing to do with
tlie internal management of the company,
but grunted a temporary injunction, until Wednesday, against making the output more than 100 tons daily. Plaintiff
is taxed with all thc costs.
This decision throws the legal battle
over the I.e Roi mine into the courts of
the stnte of Washington. Two suits arc
now pending in these courts. One is lo
restrain tlio, li. A. C, W. B. Heyburn,
Mcintosh, Carlyle und Durant from voting stock standing in their names, from
purchasing any more stock on account of
the B. A. C, from taking any part whatever in the affairs of the Le Roi company,
either as stockholders or otherwise, and
from completing the purchase of the
block contracted for hy the B. A. C. This
injunction has been grunted until the
timil hearing of the case. The petition
further prays for a sequestration of the
stock now alleged to be held and owned
by them, for its cancellation on thc hook*
of the I.e Roi Company, and its retirement from circulation.
The other case is an action against thc
B, A. C, Whitaker Wright, Mcintosh,
the two Peyton*, W. J. C. Wakefield,
and I). W. Henley for $780,000 damages
by reason of an alleged conspiracy to reduce the value of the stock.

Tho recent coal discoveries on Cornell
Creek, near Whatcom, promise great le
velopmenta. The vein which lias been
uncovered for a number of feet shows lo
feet 8 inches minimum width. Already
negotiations fur its sale to a syndicate
which will develop il are going on. The
Bite of the find is near where Glacier
enek empties into Nooksuek nnd where*
the llannegan trail begins to make its
way into thc heart of the Cascade mountains, and directly in the path of the
gold seeker making his way into the
Mount Baker mining country. The vein
itself was flint discovered while the rush
into the region was at its height lust fall,
but it was gold not coal that wus the
all .'.llining prospect then und it was allowed to stoud until this summer, when
the original discoverers, Thomas Tyler
and C. C. Cornell, together with Henry
Wiggins, who had lieen taken into partnership, commenced to develop it, wilh
the results above stated. Now it is said
thut men are deserting the gold regions
to come down and join in the search for
coul veins.
I'lncrr* Hear "*iel«on.
I-ist week a report gained currency
around Nelson to the etTect that a rich
strike of placer gold hud been made on
Rover creek, which Hows into the Koo-
tenuy river near Slocan Junction, about
10 mile*, from the city. Several parties
went out to inevstigulc und returned
with reports of rich finds. Thc Bpokse*
mnn-Rcvicw correspondent visited thc
scene of operations yesterday and found
the creek alive with prospectors und the
ground staked for fully four miles up.
There arc over 200 locations of 100 feet
square already made. Thc Discovery
claim wus located on the west fork of
Rover creek August 2*. by Martin Anderson, George W. Madden und Wash. C.
Miller, thri-e prospectors who had been
over the ground dozens of times before.
While going along thc river bed they
found a smull nugget. They begun to

feet in getting Values to the extent of $1

good colors have been found.

Mining men nre being encouraged by
the increased values being secured on the
south half of the Colville reservation.
For tho first 30 days after the Opening
of the south hulf it seemed almost impossible to secure iwsuy values greater than
from $2.50 to $4 or even *5, with somo
rare exceptions. These returns were all
secured from the cropping* «nd it seemed
doubtful whether there was a single
property on the south half worthy of being located. However, some work has

Omdurman, Opposite Khartoum on the
Nile, Nubia, Sept. 2.—(By camel post to
Nasey.)—The sirdar, General Herbert
Kitchener with the khalifa black standard captured during tlie battle, entered
Omdurman, the capital of Mahdiam, at
4 o'clock this afternoon at the head of
the Anglo-Egyptian column, atter completely routing the Dervishes and dealing
a death blow to Mahdiam.
Koughly, our losses were 200, while
thousands of the Dervishes were killed
nnd wounded. Last night the Anglo-
Egyptiun army encamped at Agaiza, eight
miles from Omdurman. The DervisheB
were three miles distant. At dawn the
cavalry patrolling toward Omdurman discovered the enemy advancing to the attack in battle array, chanting war songs.
Their front consisted of infantry and cavalry, stretched out for three or four mile*!.
Countless banners fluttered over their
masses and their copper and brass drums
resounded through the ranks of the savage warriors who advanced unswervingly
with all their old-time ardor. Our infantry formed outside the camp. On the
left were the First battalion of Northumberland fusileers, the Second battalion
Lancashire fusileers and the First battalion grenadier guards with the Maxim
battery, manned by thc Royal Irish fusileers. In the center were the First battalion Warwickshire. First battalion
Cameron Highlanders and the First battalion Warwic-shire, First battalion
ims worked by a detachment of the royal
artillery under Major Williams. On our
right were the Soudanese brigades, commanded by General Maxwell and General
McDonald. The Egyptian brigades held
the reserve- and both flanks were supported by -laxiiu-Nordenfeld batteries.
At 7:20 a. m. the enemy crowded the
ridges above the camp and advanced
steadily in enveloping formation.
Swept Down  the  j.-il«ld«*.
At 7:40 our artillery opened fire which
was answered by the Dervish riflemen.
Their attack developed on our left and
in accordance with their traditional tactics they swept down the hillside with
the design of rushing our flunk. But the
withering lire maintained for 13 minutes
hy all our line frustrated the attempt
and the Dervishes, balked, swept toward
our center, upon whieh they concentrated
a fierce attack.
A large force of horsemen, trying o
face a continuous hail of bullets from the
Cameron Highlanders, the Lincolnshire
regiment and the Soudanese, was literally swept away, leading to the withdrawal
of the entire body, whose dead strewed
the field.
"llllKillllcl-iit   HiisIich.
The bravery of the Dervishes can hardly be overstated. Those who carried the
flags struggled within a hundred yards
of our fighting line. When the Dervishes
withdrew behind the ridge In front of
their camp the whole force marched in
echelon battalions toward Omdurman.
When our troops surmounted the crests,
tho Soudunese on the right came to attack those who had reformed under the
rocky eminence and had massed around
the black standard of the klialifa in order to make a supreme effort to retrieve
the fortunes of thc day. A mass 15,000
strong bore down on the Soudanese. General Kitchener swung round thc center
and left of the Soudanese and seized thc
rocky eminence and the Egyptiuns, hitherto in reserve, joining thc tiring line. In
10 minutes and before the Dervishes could
drive their attack home, the flower of thc
khalifa's army was caught in a depression
and within a zone of withering crossfire from three brigades, with the attendant artillery. The devoted mahdists
strove heroically to make headway, but
every rush was stopped, while their main
body was literally mown down by a sustained deadly cross-fire.
Died Around  Their  Stnndnrd*.
Defiantly the Dcrvisues planted their
standards and died beside them. Their
dense masses gradually melted to companies and the companies to driblets beneath the leaden hail. Finally they
broko and fled, leaving the field white
with the jibbah clad corpses, which like
a snowdrift, dotted the spot.
At 11:15 the sirdar ordered an advance
ond our whole force in lino drove the
scattered remnant of the foe into thc desert, our cavalry cutting off their retreat
to Omdurman.
None   ltniv.T  Thnn   En-rll*-.
Among the chief incidents of the battle was a brilliant churgc by the Twenty-
first lancers, under Lieutenant Colonel
Martin. Galloping down on a detached
body of the enemy they found the Dervish swordsmen massed behind and were
forced to charge home against great odds.

captured and held the gun, but it was
brilliantly retaken.
The heroic bravery of the Dervishes
evoked universal admiration. Time after
time their dispersed and broken forces reformed and hurled themselves upon the
Anglo-Egyptians, their emirs conspicuously leading and spurning death. Even
when wounded and in death agonies they
raised themselves to fire   a   last shot.

Mrs. Pinkham hasdone much to make

guard against disease and retain vigorous health m old age. From every corner of the earth tbere isconstantly coming the most convinciug statements
from women, showing the efficacy of
Lydia E. Plnkham's Vegetable Compound in overcoming female Ills. Here
is a letter from Mrs. J. C. Orms, of 220
Horner St., Johnstown, Pa, which is
earnest and straight to the point:
" DkarMbs. Pinkham.—1 feel it my

At leust #17,000,000 in pried money will
Im ilistrilmti'il among sailora us a result
of the war with Spain. More than a hulf
of this award will be in accordance with
tliat section of the law providing for the
payment of bounty to person- aboard the
ve-seb) that sunk the Spanish ileet.
Although not a penny of prize money
has yet been turned into the treasury
Judge Advocate Lemley and his chief
i clerk, Mr. llanna, are engaged in considering the various claims for prize money
that have been tiled by the otlicers und
men, and in passing upon tlie various
(jucalions which have arisen.
From the olliciul report of Admiral
Montojo, commanding the Spanish fleet
at Manila, there were 1875 persons aboard
his ships. The bounty amounts to $187,-
600, which congress will lie asked to appropriate during the coming session. One-
twentieth of this sum belongs to Hour
Admiral DeWey, commander-in-chief, and
he will therefore be $1)375 richer than he
was before the war.
SiiiniiMiin'M  Biff  Share.
Rcuv Admiral Sampson has realized a
snug little fortune as a result of the wuv.
As commander-in-chief of the North Atlantic fleet he will get one-twentieth of
every prize taken by the North Atlantic
fleet und one-twentieth of the head money
allowed for the vessels destroyed oil Santiago and in Cuban ports, lt is estimated
that he will iinally receive about $40,0'*0
as his shave of prize money.
In determining the amount of head
money due otlicers and men it will be
necessary for the department to decide
whether a vessel destroyed is superior or
inferior to her antuionfet. If the latter
the American ship will be entitled to $200
for each person on bourd the enemy. Of
course this will swell the amount of prize
money due thc admiral.
It is estimated that, including the Mercedes, sunk at the mouth of the harbor
of Santiago, there were _tl)_ persons on
board the Spanish fleet destroyed by
Sampson's command, which was superior
to the enemy and the amount of head
money due the Ileet will consequently ag
grcgate $240,'_0O. Besides these ships
Spanish men-of-war were sunk at Muii/.ii-
nillo, Nipe and other points along the
Cuban coast, the destruction of which
each means a prize for the ollieeis ami
men participating in the work.
Many 0.ue*tloiiH to Settle.
Legal ollieeis of the depart incut will
be requested to determine whether mei-
bhant vessels carrying guns in their hold
like the Santo Domingo, which was sunk
by the Krigle, come within the meaning oi
tlie section providing for the payment
of bounties for persons on bourd. These
question may delay the adjudication of
amounts due otlicers and men interested.
The department was notitied a few days
ago by Judge Locke of Florida that he
would turn into the treasury the net
amount resulting from the sale of the
cargo of coul on board the Hritish tramp
steamer Kestormel. The notification w is
subsequently withdrawn,
The Kestoniiel's case is the furthest ad-1
vaueed of  any  prizes.      Owners  of  the
great majority  of  the  captured  vessels
have taken appeals from the courts which
have condemned their ships as prizes and
it will be many months before the supreme court of the United States is able
to pass on them.

The prospects for the permanency

at any time as the present. Steady
developement work has been going on
in the surrounding mines and the old

have been added to our list of mines.
The amount of ore that will be shipped

and Silverton will rank n**xt after

Our business men who have been far-
sighted enough to see thn possibilities
of this camp will soon be reaping tbe
golden harvest that their pluck and
•staying qualities have made them
deserving of.
At tbe Canadian—American Conference, now being held at Quebec
the question of the doing away of the
Alien Labor Ar-t of the United States,
in so far as Canada is concerned, will
be asked by the Canadian Commission.
Although this request appears reasonable and fair on the face of it, it will
no doubt be refused, and the reason
for the refusal will by simple and just,
when the matter is properly and fairly
looked into,
The emigration laws of Canada and
the United States are both founded on
the same principles of justice and
freedom, but in many important details
are dissimilar, principally those of
contract labor, pauper and Mongolian
emigration. The U. S. laws carefully
guards its .(oiling millions of tradsmen
and laborers from allowing an employer to go into a foreign country where
labor may be exceptionally cheap and
contracting for craftsmen or laborers
and bringing them into the country to
compete, and necessarily lower tbe
scale of wages paid to the citizen
laborer. Mongolian emigration is
strictly prohibited and allowed to
land under no condition. Undesirable
and pauper emigrants are rejected and
turned back by thousands overy year.
Canada on the other band has spent
thousands and thousand? of dollars to
encourage thi- very class of emigration, considered obnoxious by our
southern neighbors. Thousands of thn
leperously tainted Mongolians land
on our shores yearly and enter into
the labor market in competition with
the Canadian working man, thus
driving them into the States to earn a
fair wage and respectable living for
their families. Until Canada bas an
emigration law that will do justice to
and protect her people against this
olass of emigration, it is altogether
unlikely that America will allow herself to be made tbe dumping ground
of the world and the emigrant's squ-
journ in Canada tor a period of a few
months would not make him the less
objectionable as a wonld be citizen.
This question ot restricted emigration is of vital importance to the very
life and national existence of this, our
Canada, of which we are so justly
proud, and it is principally owing to
this indiscriminate emigration to pur
land of the offscourings of Europe and
Asia, that drives thousands of our
young men and women yearly to find
homes and livings among our southern
neighbors. That these alien .emigration laws of the U. S. were not made
wjjth any idea or intention^ of discriminating against Canada or the Can-
idiuu peuple is evideiiucdby the fact
that there are at this present moment
hundreds of thousands of Canadians
occupying homes in that country and
holding some of the highest positions
within the gift of the people and
government of that land.
Let Canada enact a just and fair
emigration law that will shut out the
Chinese and other objectional classes of
emigrants, so thot our young men and
women may bo able to earn o living at
home, and none hut the best c lass of
emigrants will come amongst us. We
have lands and room for millions of
such, but not one inch of land in
Canada should be given to that class
of people who were no good in tho
land they camo from and who will
never do good to any country they
may come to. Let the Chinese be
shut out once and for all. They will
never amalgamate with us or any
others of the white race, and it will
cost us millions to get rid of those that
have already landed, and have commenced to sap the life out of British
Columbia, one of our best  provinces.
