POLITICAL BOMB EXPLODED
Inward History Japanese Immigration Traced
to Very Door of McBride Ministry
by Duncan Ross, M*P*
McBride and Bowser Facing Both Ways in Their Endeavors
to Please the Soulless C.P.R. and the Working-
men Voters oi this Province.
On January 20tb, Duncan Ross, M. P.
for Yale-Cariboo, delivered a speech in
the House of Commons on the Japanese,
dealing particularly with the part played
by Premier McBride and Attorney-General Bowser on this all absorbing Oriental
immigration question. Mr. Rosa in an
able and pointed speech shows up the
mendacious actions of McBride and Bowser in indeavoring to fix' the blame on
the Dominion Government for the
Japanese influx to British Columbia.
I n order to give Star readers a chance to
learn the truth of this matter, and show
them how the country has been betrayed
by Messts McBride and Bowser, we publish the speech, as follows:
"As was our duty, representing public
opinion in the Province of British Columbia, members from British Columbia
have in this House endeavored to prees
upon the Government and upon Parliament and the people of the east the views
of the people of British Columbia.
"On the other hand, friends of the
honorable gentlemen opposite, have represented the other extreme views. The
Canadian Pacific Railway Company and
the Canadian Manufacturers Employers'
Association, and other large employers of
1 ibor who are known to have been
friendly to the honorable gentlemen op
posite, have laid it down as their policy
that all barriers to cheap labor in this
country should be broken down and tht t
an unlimited supply of Oriental labor
should he allowed to come into this
country.
"Again, the Right Hon. the Premier,
exercising that sound judgment which
he has always displayed, stepped into the
breach and by a happy compromise has,
I believe, succeeded in satisfactorily set
tling this question. It has not been
settled in the way people of British Columbia wanted it settled, because, though
we were ready and even anxious to take
most drastic measures to absolutely insure that there should be no further
Oriental immigration into that province,
;he people of that province are reasonable people and so long as they have assurances that this question hi s been
settled in a manner that will insure them
what they want, they are not going   to
I complain because they possibly did not
get everything they wanted. There is no
good reason why if by diplomatic action
which has been successfully carried on
by the Honorable the Postmaster-General
a satisfactory solution of the dangerous
question has been secured, that anyone
should complain because his own method
of settling the question was not adopted.
"But, sir, notwithstanding the fact that
everything that has been done lookin'g
towards the settlement of this question,
and every effort that has been made to
meet the views of the people ot the prov
ince of British Columbia are to the credit
of this Government, the Premier of the
province of British Columbia and his fol
lowers are day in and day out attempting
to convince the people there that the
Laurier Government is hostile to their
views an 1 is not anxious for a settlement
of this question. This Government appointed a royal commission to investigate the question a number of years ago
and jn accordance with the recommendation of that commission they imposed a
$500 head tax on Chinese with the result
that that portion of the question was
settled to the satisfaction of the people of
British Columbia. In response to representations made by the people of British
Columbia, the Postmaster General was
sent to Japan for the purpose of arranging a settlement of the other side of the
question and he returns with a settlement
which I am bound to believe will result
as satisfactorily so far bs the province of
British Columbia is concerned as the imposition of a $500 poll tax on Chinese.
' Notwithstanding these facts, sir, it
cannot be disputed that the Conservative
party in the province of British Columbia
are endeavoring to keep alive this agitation and by the passage of acts which
have been declared again and again to be
ultra vires of the authority of provincial
legislation, they are endeavoring to make
it difficult for this Government to secure
* satisfactory settlement of this question.
No opportunity is lost by Conservative
leaders in British Columbia to endeavor
tp_.pl ace British Columbia representatives
in this House in a false light before the
people of British Columbia, and   in   jus-

FIREMEN'S HOP A SUCCESS.
Annual Dance Well Attended and
Enjoyable Time Spent—Twenty-
Eight Dollars Surplus.
The annual ball given by the Princeton
Volunteer Fire Brigade Wednesday night
proved a most enjovable affair. The ball
room had been artistically and appropriately decorated for the occasion and presented a very pretty picture. Everything
tending to the comfort and well being of
the dancers was provided for and a
sumptuous repast was served at mid
might. Dancing was kept up till three
a. m. and even then the merry dancers
were reluctant to pass from the scene of
festivities, so well had they enjoyed
themselves, and all are agreed that the
fire laddies are pastmasters in the art of
entertaining.
A meeting of the ball committee was
held on Friday evening when accounts
in connection with the dance were submitted and it was gratifying to leatn
that a surplus of $28 was shown over and
above all expenses. This will materially
swell the bell fund.
The committee also desire to thank all
those who so kindly donated cakes etc.,
thereby greatly assisting in making the
affair a success.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
DEATH OF JIMMY STEVES.
Jimmy Steves, who was injured a
couple of weeks ago by being thrown
from a sleigh, on the road between
Bromley's and Hedley, while breaking
a young horse, died on Sunday morning.
At the time of the accident Steves received a nasty cut on the head and other
injuries, but did not think it serious
enough to call in medical aid. He con-
tiuued to go about as usual for about a
week when he was stricken down with
partial paralysis of the brain and Dr.
Schon was then summoned. The doctor did all possible for the sufferer, but he
had been called too late, and the unfortunate man succumbed to his injuries as
stated. The Rev. Mr. Conn was called
to the bedside of the dying man and
comforted him in his last hours.
The deceased was in his twenty-ninth
year and leaves a mother, sister and
brothet to mourn his death. Steves was
well known in the Similkameen for his
daring feats of horsemanship and was
rated one of the best riders in the
country.
The interment took place yesterday
afternoon at the reservation near Allison
in the presence of a large number of
relatives and friends, Rev. Mr. Conn ofij-
ciating at the grave.
A report was circulated a few days ago
that a Chinaman at Granite Creek had
smallpox. Dr. Schon was despatched to
investigate and be-found that the Celestial was suffering from nothing more
serious than an attack of eczema.
Large Sale of Nursery Stock—Murderer Captured—"Sidelights on
Married Life."
The bridge over the Similkameen river
at Allison underwent repairs last week
new stringers being put in and is now in
first class condition.
Mrs. L. Huston left yesterdoy for Cas-
seltou,' North Dakota, haying received
the sad intelligence of her mother's serious illness.
On Friday evening Rev. Mr. Conn will
deliver his usual fortnightly lecture, the
subject for this occasion being "Sidelights on Married Life." He will also
conduct divine services o.n Sunday evening, usual place and hour.
The married ladies of Princeton propose giving a dance on the 28th inst. It
should prove the best ever. _
What is probably the largest sale of
nursery stock ever made by one firm in
British Columbia, says the Penticton
Press, is now being put through by the
Okanagan Nursery Co. of Penticton. The
purchasers are the Fraser Valley Nursery
Co. of Burnaby, near New Westminster,
and the nursery stock will aggregate between fifteen and sixteen thousand dollars and embraces nearly every variety of
fruit tree specially adapted to the province.
Mrs. Dell Young returned last Friday
from a visit to her brother, T. McAlpine,
of Summerland.
Francisco Cedio, who blew up the
Canadian Hotel, near Grand Forks, with
dynamite, killing Louise King, and who
was recently captured in Salt Lake City,
has waved extradiction. He will be
taken to Nelson and when the spring
assizes come on he will be tried at Greenwood on the charge of murder.
BOARD OF  TRADE MEETING.
The Board of Trade held a special
meeting last night to consider the request to donate a sum of money to Fire
Brigade to assist in purchasing a bell for
fire alarm and other purposes. The
meeting got down to business without
delay and Mr. Waterman's motion to donate $50 for this purpose was passed
unanimously, and one of the most businesslike meetings in the Board's history
came to an end.
OBITUARY.
The death took place last Wednesday
of Emil Rasmus, brother of Mrs. Chas.
Burch, caused by a hemorrhage of the
lungs. The deceased who was in the
prime of life had been a resident of this
district for about three years and was employed at Mr. Burch's sawmill on One-
Mile. The funeral took place on Friday,
afternoon and was largely attended.
In the absence of a minister Dr. Schon*
read the English church burial service.

POLITICAL, BOMB EXPLODED.
Continued from page 1.
tice to the course we have alwaye pursued
here I am compelled to crave the indulg
ence of the House while I £.ive it a little
inside history. By relating a few facts
concerning the question it will immediately be apparent that neither Premier
McBride uor his Attorney-General, Mr,
Bowser, have been either frank or sin
cere in their attitude on this question as
they have been neither frank nor sincere
in connection with many other questions
of a public nature.
"As is pointed out in the excellent report of McKenzie King, the origin of the
influx of Japanese into the province of
British Columbia during 1907 began with
the advent of Sauri Gotoh. This gentleman had a wide experience in supplying
labor to American railways'. He had
furnished men to the Oregon Short Line,
Union Pacific, Southern Pacific and
Northern Pacific. In 1901 he came from
Tacoma to Vancouver and established a
connection with the Canadian Pacific.
He succeeded in effecting an agreement
with that company similar to the agreement between railway companies and
Japanese contractors across the line. The
agreement was prepared by Bowser between Gotoh and the Canadian Pacific.
Mr. Bowser was then acting for Gotoh.
This agreement was renewed from time
to time until finally in December, 1906,
Gotoh organized the Canadian Nippon
Supply Company, Limited, and a similar
: agreement to that prepared bs Bowser
was entered into between the Canadian
Nippon Supply Company and the Canadian Pacific Railway Company and also
the Wellington colliery Co. As I want
the House to be in possession of the nature of  this agreemen, I   am   going   to
i$r':*'fl place it on Hansard."
£ Mr. Ross then read  the agreement and
i: ■:.*•'■' continued:
"I want the House also to keep in
mind .that Gotoh was the client of W. J.
Bowser and ihat W. J. Bowser prepared
. that original agreement. The general
provincial elections were held in the
province of British Columbia on  the 2nd
Rye-jj day of February, 1997, and on the evening of the first day of February, 1907, W.
J. Bowser, who was one of the Conservative members in the city of Vancouver,
and who was running for re-election, delivered a speech in the city of Victoria
■'''which is reported in the Victoria Daily
- Colonist of the morning of- February 2nd.
as follows: Here Mr. Ross read the report. The same information is contained
in the front page article of the Vancouver
Province, published on the evening of
the 1st of February. I also want to place
this article on Hansard with its flaming
headlines.    It reads as follows:
Here the report from the above paper
was given headidg and all.
"The Province of the same evening
has an editorial in which it commends
W. J. Bowser for drawing   the   attention
of the public to the efforts of the McBride Government to prevent the influx
of cheap Japanese labor into this country.
He was also commended for further
warning the puhlic regarding a contract
entered into by the Grand Trunk Pacific
for a supply of Japance labor, and the
Province intimated 'this contract would
be made effective if the McBride Government were defeated and the Liberals returned to power.'
"The editorial of the Province concludes in the following words: 'Mr.
Bowser's warning therefore to the people
of British Columbia who do not want the
province swamped with cheap labor is
worthp of most serious consideration.'
"The people of Canada were subsequently made aware of the strong position taken by the people of Vancouver
in regard to this question, and wheu the
Province's article appeared on the evening before election with its wealth of detail, giving particulars of this contract,
telling them about Gotoh betng in Japan
for the purpose of carrying out the con
ditions of this contract, it would have
been absolutely impossible to have elected the angel Gabriel in the city of Vancouver in view of the information contained in that article. It would have
been equally impossible to have secured
at that time any evidence strong enough
to counteract the effects of this alticle before the election look place on the day
immediately following the publication of
this article. The result was that the Liberal party did not carry a single seat in
Vancouver, although up to the time this
article was published it was confidently
expected by Liberals that they would
carry the five seats in Vancouver, and
prominent Conservatives admitted that at
least three Liberals would have been
elected. Wherever the Province got this
information, so far as the G. T. P. railway
was concerned, the report of McKenzie
King conclusively proves that there was
not a shadow of a vestage of truth in the
statement of the Province.
"The report of the Colonist states that
details of this information was giyen by
W. J. Bowser in a speech delivered in
the city of Vancouver. The Vancouver
Proviuce is the organ of the Canadian
Pacific Railway, a corporation which had
entered into a contract which Gotoh or
the Canadian Nippon Suppty Co. for
Japanese labor. The agreement entered
into was prepared by W. J. Bowser.
