G. McQuarrie,'Conservative member for New' Westminster asking L'o"  the. exclusion-of. immigration of this  type was defeated by a combined vote  of Government and Progressive members. 'Tlie Conservative members' in  the House voted solidly for. exclusion; of Vancouver, Messrs. Black,  Clark, Ladner, MacKelvie, and other  Opposition  members.  Mr McQuarrie -went into the question very, thoroughly^ his Resolution  providing "for the ; exclusioir^in ''the"  fiuure of all alien orientals who may  seek to enter Canada in any. capacity  far permanent residence. He quoted-  tlie-te^ms of the treaty with Japan,  and referred to the'- '-Gentleman's  Agreement." effected in 1907��������� restricting immigration", urging that-a request .should be made to the Britisii.  Government to .give notice- to-.Japan  that Canada wanted the treaty ��������� terminated,, and, that1 the agreement  should be directly cancelled. He gavo  ��������� a'- mass of' striking. figures' showing  how rapidly'the birth * rate of tin  Jaoanese'in particular was increasing  on the Pacific Coast.- In 1910 -the  proportion, of Japanese births to  whites was'only, one in 252. In 192J  this had increased to one in 17. He  estimated that there were over 57.-  000 Chinese-and .over 50,000 Japanese in Canada at the present time.

A. Munro (Fraser Valley):  Like other members who have spoken on this subject, I also consider it  the most important that has engaged  the attention of his Holism so''far this  session or that may engage it in the  future.  The/question involved moans to  the people of British Columbia in particular, and to the people' of-Canada  in general, tlieir right to develop  the highest type of . manhood and  womanhood with a great' national  destiny after the best traditions of  the British^ race.'

' We have performed  the filial duty of self-abnegation  with more or less grace for the good  of the mother country. When one  considers, the length,, strength and  alacrity of the British arm of justice  in succouring even a - single British  subject from danger or distress, or  demanding full restitution for foul  play, we .must confess after all that  the seeming injustices done have  been accompanied with the best intentions, and have grown out of her  multiplicity of cares and lier non-  acquaintance with the peculiarities  of the case rather than of material  neglect.  The position in which we find  ourselves in British Columbia with  respect to Orientals has grown out of  lack of knowledge of the real conditions there on the part of the Mother Country, and also on the part oi  Canadians generally.

This 'action Ts?/ due to a'  petition,made by Mr. Hector Stewart,  who claims that many farmers on  rthe lake lands' are putting in crop on  this year and' these cultivated areas  niust.be safeguarded.' Already herds  .of .cattle'.from other /districts ha'v*  been turned loose as .'in:;,' other' years  to fatten on the flopded'fands..

Following the engineer's -report  $100 will be spent in improving, the  Straiten road south of the , Vye road,  and $50 on tlie Maher road adjoining.  In response to the irequest from  Mr.-J. Burton and others a $200  grant was made for the-Farmer'road  west, local landowners making a substantial offer of voluntary labor in  addition.  The Potter drainage scheme, which  has recived the engineer's award,  promises to relieve more territory  than the originally proposed.  The provincial engineer has requested to draia the east of Huntingdon townsite into this ditch, and tin)  dead water on the south side of the  Vye road, on the Burton property will  find an outlet the same way, according to suggested arrangement.

A. BATES,' Editor and Proprietor  While no truly British institution  holds a brief for Oriental immigration, the people are warned to beware these lamentations which are  issued every now and then regarding  the "yellow menace," and which  savor too gireatly of party politics^  This so-called menace has - been a  veritable football in iho' province's  politics for a score of years. It would  seem that the new Farmer-Progressive Party launched in Kamloops is  making one of its stoutest planks refer to tills question an*', tlie hackneyed phrases of "lower standard of living" and the like are    again pressed  into duty.  It' is granted, that, these Orientals  have a lower standard of living than  the whites, but their    very presence  here reveals a monument of industry  and  frugality  which should"bc good  for the country as an example of what  can be done by    sheer    hard    work  Many whites' despise   such hours    of  labor  as  Chinamen  employ,  regard  ing    them as    demoralizing.      Work  never killed a man yet, when congenial returns were the result.of the labor    employed.    It    is    stated    thai  Chinamen have no conscience ' w'th  regard to impoverishing the land.    A  simple statute enforcing rotation  O''  crops would meet the case;  the yellow  men. are  proverbially   law-abiding.  We should face the facts. Theie  are tracts of land right at the city's  door which no whites saw their way  to cultivate and which Chinamen  have made a; veritable garden and  which;was with pride shown to Loid  Binrnham and the-imperial .press' conference delegates, to mention but  one body, as if it were done by tlie  brow sweat of our own people.  Chinamen'have many good qualities. They can' vastly improve lands  and make hopeless-looking "places fit  for good returns. As citizens, they  maybe quite useless from a-national  standpoint; their very creed forbids  their bones remaining in the country  of'their sojourn. But they have a  ��������� sense of honesty which,niight be emulated, a practise of hard work which  might likewise be copied with acl-  - vantage,: and an honorable thrift' to  which very many whites' are strangers.

Rights'are measured by certain standards, and the higher the civilization  the higher the;,standard of decent living conditions;  we .recognize a standard day of so k many   hours for   so  much pay; we recognize   a standard  of individual obligation to    the community and the state;  we recognize  _a standard of. education;,   we recognize a standard .of morality based   on  the Ten Commandments.

His  first opposition to oriental immigration . was the magnitude of' the  source! There were 800,000 orientals  facing us on the Pacific .slopes in the'  East, and Canada could not absorb  any .considerable amount of imniigia-  tion.from such a source. He quo tad  Lord Milner when dealing with a  similiar question in South Africa; io  prove that the position of British  Columbia was not a narrow preju  diced one.

The way was open foi  Canada to .denounce the treaty i^  tween Great Britain and- Japan aftd  the Lemieux agreement, a? weK.  Mr H H. Stevens. Conservative  Member for Vancouver South; and  fmember of Mr. Meighen's   govern-  had been afforded stable and civiliz  ed communities in the .past, from  large migrations of alien people was  gone; modern transportation facilities had made it possible to move immense bodies of people, and this  -made'"the presence of 800,000 Orientals opposite us across the Pacific a  very serious-problem.  - The economic pressure from them  was terrifying;  wherever    the white  is'  brought  into ' competition     with  them the standard of living must be  reduced or there was no possibility of  successful competition. ��������� There was a  regular   slave    system    among    tho  Chinese in Canada, under which.syndicates brought in    individuals, paying all expenses, and    keeping them  almost as serfs until the    debt    was  paid at usurious rates    of    interest,  their servitude sometimes lasting as  Jong as 20 years.      The    community  where there was.a large Oriental population was a mighty    poor one for  j'tho sale of manufactured goods    ana  !tlie food products of the" ^white men.  iThey paid almost . nothing   into the  irevenues of the country.''  Mr. Stevens then dealt with the  constitutional aspect of the niattor  claiming that it "r was the inherent  right of Canada' to determine;the  conditions upon which anyone* might  be admitted within the bounds of  the state:-" This was recognized m  the "Immigration Act and'other Canadian" statues arid the Imperial Government had recognized - that rightr  All we"have to do is to exercise our  rights. For, himself he stood, for  the'exclusion of the Asiatic "as a permanent resident of Canada.  Hoir��������� Arthur-Meighen took a very,  emphatic position for    the exclusion  of the    Asiatic.      The - increase    in  numbers was alarming;  assimilation-  was impossible; the attitudte of British  Columbia towards    the problem,  was shared by    everyone    who    had  looked into the question. ��������� Reviewing  all the circumstances it    was surely  not illogical, he said, to conclude thai,  what had" been done was   not   sutlic-  ieht to-meet the situation.      At Ue  conference of Premiers which he attended in England last   s,ummer tne  opinion" was expressed    emphatically  that full and-unrestricted cpntiol    o..  Oration.'rested -in each Dominion-  of the Empire,-and as a-^matter    ot  fact, effective exclusion    already exists in other parts    ot    the   Empi e.  -Let it-be.  understood,"    he    said,  "that so far as I    am    c?n~���������edwill,  favor exclusion.       Restriction     wil  not do.    That is the position    I take  on this motion, and I    appeal to    the  government to help us reach a word-  ins- that will leave no doubt   in    the  SfnSof the people of Canada or in  the minds of the people of Japan as to  just what the will of this Parliament  iS Another member of the Meighen  Administration, in the P���������������;^1^  Dr. Tolmie of Victoria carried on the  debate in an effective speech Lorn  the standpoint of one who had been  born and brought up m British Col  umbia.    Dr. Tolmie    detailed    in    a  graphic maimer the development    of  the Orienetal menace,,   tracing    the  growth of the invasion from the time  when  there was only    one    Chinese  store in Victoria down to the present  time when orientals control much of  the business of (.he,. East,' -and have'   -  practically    a    hionopoly    of    truck  farming on    Vancouver.    Island.    He  pointed out how (he Hawaiian Islands  are now overrun  by .Japanese,    and  dwelt upon the   troubles    caused    in  California through   the  same  cause.  He -warned'   members    from Ontario  and the eastern sections   .of    Canada   .  that the day was    not    far    distant  when its difficulties    and    dangers,  how experienced by British Columbia,  would make- themselves   felt in   all'   -  -parts of Canada.  The debate thus brought'those   on   .  the government side and every member who-had spoken to a point where  all were of one mind as to the necessity  for exclusion'.      The resolution  proposed by Mr.'   MacQuarrie would    .  have very effectively expressed  this  sentiment.   But Plon. Charles    Stew-   '  art, minister of    Immigration,    was   :  put up ' to    move    an    amendment  :-r  which would substitute "restriction"   ���������  for ''exclusion."    Premier King   had  -  previously   spoken    and    held    that  ,-  there "were-lions in the path."    H*: -;.  thought Chinese could  be restricted '���������  by a passport   system,    and that - it ;"'  was to our interest to admit students.  Parliament, in considering the ques- ������������������  tion. of the exclusion    of  . Japanese .-  [should consider very    carefully    the  effect on the possible    development1,  of trade with the Orient:    He urged,  that we should negotiate'' with    the.';  Japanese Government ��������� and    find  ' if  they have any objection to the-clause"  in the Immigration Act being applied  to later amendments' ��������� to    our laws. ,  He thought the Japanese Government,  had lived up to the   Lemieux Agree-  .  ment.    The word    "exclusion" , too  had come to have a    meaning.which ,  was most offensive to    the Oriental  people.    In'short, "effective-restriction" was as far as - the Government  ,  was prepared to go and as, Mr.,Crera'r  was lying in wait in the   offing pre- .  pared to, come to    the   support ,'of"  the - Government,' that was as, jar a\.  the vote carried the matter.      ,    .  Just how effective    this   ."restric- .  tion" will be, and when, if ever,:-. ,it.  will be put info    operation,-', remains  to be seen; but in the meantime -the;,  Conservative party has   ,gone bn4 record in the most effective manner, as..  in favor of absolute exclusion,    and.  the sentiment of    practically ..every  member of the House who spoke on  the subject supported   .that attitude..

To the beginner .in motor.ing, tour-.,  ing may seem like a simple . .proposi- .- , .  tion of driving along a road until you  get to your fixed    objective. In real-   ��������� .  ity there is a lore of touring, quite as  .  definite as woodcraft, and the motorist who has    learned    how to tour,  avoids trouble that his inexperienced -  brother falls into.  '  In planning any extended .motor  trio the first essential is' to get a dependable-map. The California Stata  Automobile Association publishes excellent maps, designed to serve the  motor tourists' needs. These are  kept up to date as the road changes  occur and for that reason are better  than route books which, though good  in their way, cannot be brought, up to  the minute as readily as the maps.  Routes Now Colored  In many parts of the country, particularly in New England, routes are  now colored, the telegraph poles  along the route being, painted with  bands of a particular color or combination. With a map indicating-  these colors, the tourist does not  have to worry even with a map; ho  simply follows the banded poles. '  Even at night the spotlight discloses  the color on the poles.  Now there is' a movement on foot  to improve on this color scheme by  giving distinctive numbers at all main  through routes.  And in this connection the motorist should always remember that.telegraph wires invariably lead to towns  or cities, it is practically always  safe to follow the telegraph wires. At  a fork in the road, follow the wires, y  unless definite directions to the contrary are at hand.  Nearly all good roads follow the  valleys along rivers and so do the  railways. With tlie.se facts in mind,  the motorist need not feci worried  about getting off on a road that lear:*  nowhere  Always Seek Aid  When it becomes necessary to ask  directions, from some passerby,    al-...;  -ways try to enlist the aid of another ,  motorist.  fn passing through cities.-the small  city maps, which usually make part  of-the- bigger maps or of the route  book, are valuable in piloting the  tourist through the urban section  The motorist should remember  also that the sun is an extremely  valuable guide as to general direction. The sun's' progress serves to  fix the two cardinal points of east  and west in the traveler's mind. A  compass, of course, is a valuable assistant.

Mr. Speaker, I wish to read a proposed amendment. I do not intend to  move it; because that would only  ���������block or spread-eagle this' debate,  and we do not want the discussion to  take that form, but I want the House  tolisten to'it in order that there may  be an understanding of what is go  ing to happen if something is not  done to remedy the conditions which  exist in British Columba. This' is  the proposed amendment; that the  following words be added to the resolution:  And; if for imperial or other reasons it is considered unwise to stop  all future immigraton of this kind to  Canada, our immigration laws be so  amended whereby all Orenfal aliens  province of Ontario where they and  ment, shall be taken in. bond to the  oroyice of Ontario where they and  tlieir offspring shall permanently reside, under a registration system, so  long as they remain in Canada or until such time as' the oriental population of Ontario stands in the same  ratio to the white population of  Ontario as' prevails in the province of  British Columbia, after.which another province may be substituted for  that of Ontario.  I do not want the province of  ���������Quebec to be jealous or any other  province. The object, Mr. Chairman,  of this proposed amendment is to  find out if the people of Ontario and  the other provinces are prepared ti  pay as high a price for imperial considerations as the people of British  Columbia have paid. We offer you a  draught from the bottle that for  long years you have been pressing to  our lips���������formulated ' by your own  physicians, mixed in your own laboratory. I doubt if an hon. member in  this House would be willing to advocate that-British Columbia should receive any more orientals. Assuming  this to be correct, we have but two  positions left: the one is in line with  the resolution, total exclusion which.  we British Columbians demand so  far as least, as our province is concerned and which we recommend generally. The second and last position  is that we cannot stop all oriental  alien immigration to this country for  various reasons, therefore, these  Asiatics must be settled outside of  British Columbia. If it is all right  for British Columbia to be loaded to  ���������the gunwale wth orientals it is ail  right for the province of Ontario, if  it is a good thing for the provinces  of Ontario to be like British Clumbte,  vote for the amendment. But if it  is a bad thing for the province tf  Ontario to be like British Columbia,  why, vote for the resolution.  We will take it as an evidence or  British fair play and of good faith towards the province of British Columbia if you shall rid British Columbia  BANQUET FOOTBALL  BOYS  c Thursday evening a free banquet  was given ,by Mr. Haddrell to the  football boys' and their friend players. That the banquet was of the  best goes without saying since our  genial host of the Abbotsford Hotel  had it in charge. ' A pleasant evening was spent by the boys. An impromptu programme helped to make  the evening still more pleasant.   * .  A petition" is being circulated  among the merchants of the town to  close the places of business at 6:30  week nights and 10 p. m. on Saturdays' and nights before holidays. Abbotsford is the only place in the Fra-  ser Valley of any size that is still  maintaining the unbuinesslike hours  of 2 0 years ago. The petition ha:;  been signed by every merchant .to  whom it has been presented but one,  and it is fully believed that by midsummer all stores will be compelled  to close.  ON THE MARKET  Tires guaranteed for  7500 miles with five ply  fabric.  Heavy five , ply. brown  tubes. Made in Canada.  J. W. WRIGHT'  THE  Waikins Man  Abbotsford, B. C..

LANGLEY  VOTFS  GRANTS TO PAIRS  MURRAYVILLE, May 15^���������Lang  ley municipal council at their regular meeting on Saturday passed  grants amounting to $285 for the  various fairs to be held in the" munici  pality. The grants were .allotted ?A  follows: Langley Agricultural Association. $100; Aldergrove Agriculr  tural      Sociey,      $100; Langley  Fort Flower Show, $25.  of this octopusby this resolution or  take the pressure off British Columbia by the amendment.  It may be said that Canada never  forced the orientals' to settle in the  province of British Columbia. Quite  true, but Canada forces us to accept  them by her disallowances, which  brought the same result. PVeely we  have received; freely we have given  unto you. There is an old sayiiit,  that what is good for the goose is  good for the gander. We have been  the goose long enough.  ,  I suggest, Mr. Speaker, that'this*  resolution and proposed amendment'  are dead in line and ready for action  if something is not soon done to arrest the blighting and withering effect of oriental occupation of the  province ov British Columbia.  Note by Editor���������Mr. Munro, in a  private letter to a friend, expresses  his regret at the defeat of the resolution, and also his regrets at not being present to vote with the other B.
