Mr. George .Sinclair brought word  to town Wednesday noon that Mr.  Ed. Ridd had been hurt, by a tree  falling on him, in the .woods at  Tory Inlet. Mr. Sinclair had a  most trying time getting to Atlin.  The injured man was carried to the  steamer Blair Athol, steam gotten  up and she was under way in a  short time. Unfortunately ice was  encountered. An attempt wasmade  to go around the south of Goat  island, with the same result. The  ice made faster than it could be cut.  Mr. Sinclair and Mr. Jones started to walk to Taku, calling, on the  way, at McKenzie and Conroy's  camp, but the boys had left Monday morning. ' ��� Continuing their  journey they reached the Atlintoo  river about dusk Tuesday afternoon.  Building a fire they managed to at-,  tract the attention of Fred Wrong  and Bob Pelton. These gentlemen  tride to cross the river but only succeeded iu getting to the island.  They then put their boat on a sleigh  and dragged it to Atlin lake'. Here  they found it too rough and in the  dark could not get Mr. Sinclair's  whereabouts. Right here it seems  but fair to Wrong and Pelton, to  say .there must have been a misunderstanding, or they would hardly  have allowed Mr. Sinclair to remain  in the woods all night, as he did,  expecting, them to make another  attempt in the morning. Mr. Jones  in the meantime had started back to  the scene of the accident, to relieve  Mr. Johnston Woods, who had been  left to look after Mr. Ridd.  Wednesday morning Mr. Sinclair  signalled Taku Jack, who happened  to be iu camp nearby, aud was  brought by him over to Atlin.  As quickly as arrangements could  be made Dr. Young, Captain Bragg,  Dan McKenzie and Billy Conroy  left to render assistance. A dense  fog hung over the lake aud a biting  north wind was blowing. They  left Atlin at two o'clock and reached the ice in Tory inlet in less than  torty-five minutes. From there they  had to 'mush' on the ice and along  the shore of Goat island to where  the steamer lay. Mr. Ridd was  placed upon a sleigh and taken back  to the sail boat. After four hours  hard rowing they made McKenzie  and Conroy's camp. Here^ the)'  had something to eat and looked  after the comfort of'Mr. Ridd, placing hot water bottles around him to  keep him warm while crossing the  lake. A head wind had to be  bucked and the fog was so thick at  times they could not see a boat's  length ahead,' added to this the  thermometer registered somewhere  about 20 below zero. Atliu was  reached at 11.30. The return journey occupied over seven hours. A  number of citizens were iu readiness  with a stretcher and sled, Mr. Ridd  was immediately taken to the hospital. The captaiu aud ctew enjoyed  a  warm   and substantial   meal  at  Mrs.    Mitchell's,     thanks   to    the  thoughtlnlness of Mr. Rcssclli.  At the present time Mr. Ridd is  resting as'.easily as can be expected.  His injuries are-of a serious nature,  but as yet no alarming symptoms  have appeared. The' right hand  had to be amputated. The shoulder bones are badly broken and some  ribs on the right side broken.  Local Events.  A. J. Burnside, of the Bank of  Commerce staff, left for the outside  the beginning of the week.  Dan McKenzie and   Billy Conroy .  left yesterday   for their camp across  the lake, after a week's visit.  Charley Baker and Dick Smail,  of-Spruce, were in town this week.  Charley intends taking a trip outside as soon'as the ice makes.  The Rev. A. M. Ross leaves next  week for a trip to home'and old  acquaintances iu Manitoba and Ontario. When he leaves he bids  farewell to his bachelor quarters.  G. S. Cummings and Jim Stokes  came in from Gold Bottom Sunday  last. They enjoyed the trip, both  felt so"good they occasionally turned  somersaults or stood on their heads-  C. S. aays sv'ow "shoeing is splendid  exercise.  Messrs. McCulloch, Johnson and  Auld have a shaft 42 feet on their  property at the mouth of Gold Run.'  Louis Clarke is in charge of the  pumping and hoisting gear. They  are waiting for timbers and lagging.  There is a rumor to the effect that  Tommy Fletcher has entered the  pugilistic arena and is willing to  take on all comers, 'Bob' Jamieson  preferred. Tommy stipulates that  'Bob's' costume must be of the very  lightest, aud he would rather have  the fight come ofT iu the open with  the thermometer about 45 below.  Jack Fox and 'Vic' Ericson came  in last Monday from Conrad. Dal-  ton's property is the only one being  worked, he has six men doing development. The showing iu the  Venus, on the upper level is very  good, the lead is from two to four  feet wide. Four shots brought  down too sacks.  It is said that the reason ofthe  closing down of the Conrad mines  was that two much money was  spent in needless outside work instead of actual development. There  is plenty of good ore and it assays  high. When work is started again  it will probably be under different  management.

Cheap? Labor.  The question of cheap labor seems  ,lo be agitating the minds of some  people in lower British Columbia.  They are, principally, the fruit  grower and the lumberman.  The fruit grower says he must  have cheap labor, therefore demands  the rescinding of the law re the  Chinese bead lax, so-hc may have  swarms of the almond-eyed laborer  dumped into British Columbia, and  the price'of labor cut in two! In  consequence the fruit grower-waxes  rich, and the toiler���well he's a  toiler, that's all.  ' The lumberman and boss logger  says:; I must have labor, labor of  some kind. If 1 could get white  men I would rather emplo}' them at  their own prices, but they are so  ,;.:arcc. The white man in the  ���.roods is far superior to the others.  He can do more work and do it  better, lint we must have labor to  parry on our business.  Ll' an individual or a company  wants anything and wants it badly  they make the want known to  others and the word spreads. We  imagine the same might apply to  the wants in the labor market.  Why not advertise the scarcity of  good, intelligent labor iu our province? The word 'labor' is used advisedly, because the laborer is what  we want. There are thousands of  good, honest laborers in the older  countries; Scandauavians. Germans,  eventide of their e.vi-.iciice on a few  cents a day. Should;'they shuffle  off the .moilai coil their bones are  s-.-iit back. Thuy are parasites and  vampires. They live'in hovels and  filthy dens, fairly reeking with disease and corruption. They wilT  never assimilate. They will never  adopt our manners customs .or be-'  lie'fs.  Is there a white man iu our country, be lie ever  so   far   down,  who1  will  acknowledge a Chinaman   liis���  equal?     ,It   would   be   an  insult to  ask.    Yet what   rue we coining to?  Jtn   lower   British   ' Columbia    the  Chinamen who .came ,to the country  years ago and   brought wives  with  them   have   raised families.    These  Chinese   boys and "girls   go, to our  schools and sit alongside our sisters  and brothers, and our children, and  Jhey demand equality! ��� In a generation  or  two  there  will  be mai'13'  more.    The}'  arc   born in Canada,  under the British flag, and are British subjects.   . As  such they have  equal  rights   with   any   of us.    In  time lo come ' they will be a peril to  this country the same as the colored  man is today a' thorn iu the flesh of  the United Slates.     It will be a case  of separate  schools, , separate cars,  separate hotels and' restaurants, till,  bye and bye  we will  have to separ  ate them   with   something stronger  than' the law.  This glorious country of Canada  is growing, growing fast, and she  has a healthy growth, why pollute  her. For the sake of ourselves, our  children, and our national pride let  us have only the best people other  countries can afford, but let us have  no strain ofthe inferior races within  our borders.      Canada  for the best,  the best for Canada.  ���1 1H&4   A man in an official capacity  should rise above petty personalities.

They  work, in.tact, they slave, the majority arc in a state of bondage, and  as their savings accumulate it, is  sent back to China. This money  leaves the country and we are so  much the poorer.

So far only oiie body has been  recovered of those drowned ou the  steamer Dix. The inspectors intend to hold.a rigid examination in  order to ascertain who is to blame.  There is something rotten somewhere. Either in the marine law or  the regulations, or in the lax way  in which they are enforced. The  death toll is constantly increasing.

There.are some   pretty good men  ���on   old- Mother  -Karth,   i\\\(.\    sonic  mean   ones   lo.      About   ihe   mosl  ���contemptible   is 'the individual'wiio  mingles with his  acquaintances;  he  ���has   no   really   true   friends, telling  itliem   what   a '.power   he   is   in tlie  -community and how the whole business would   go  lo-smash  if he had  -not stepped'in and saved it.' Should  .���an election be talked of this individual fairly revels in a halo of his own  home-made   glory   and importance!/  He thinks that his services to either  <party are so   essential that a victory  without him is impossible.    Which-1  -ever way he   throws his weight the  'Other parly must go'down to defeat.  With these notions under his hat he  approaches   the   men of both sides.  :at different times.      His   first move  iis to sidle'up and .very confidenti'al-  <ly ask how  much   there   is in it for.  ihiui. " Discovering that his .importance is not appreciated aud his help  ���not sought after, he turns rusty and  'declares he will simply 'throw them  down'   if  he  does  not get what he  ���  -demands.    Because a good  man is'  ���not   put  out  of office and this 'fathead'   installed;    he threathens   to  (destroy.     This performance is gone  rthrough with   tlie  other parly with  sthe ' same  result.     He is in a quandary.     Act two is.to  fawn and lick  the hand of anyone who will promise him position or spoils.     In  this  act   he  resembles  a   mongrel   that  ���crawls on it's   belly  for a bone, the  "���while   cringing   in   expectation   at  any   moment   to   get   the  toe   of a  ���boot.      Both   parties   have had experience   with just  such creatures.  They are not  confined.- to any particular   locality.      We   are sorry to  ���say Atlin has not escaped.     A man  ���who has lhe  courage of his convictions and the good of his country at  ihearl,  one cannot help but admire.  He  will  give  you  open   and   fair  fight.      But *he  other,   the Judas,  ���who would   betray   party and coun-  itry for a few shekels or an easy job,  ���is a thing  to  be looked upon with  .contempt and scorn.  Forest Protection. ���  Such' indorsement    and    reeoni  mendation as the following., from an,  entirely noii-politicsil and non-partisan journal,   is worthy of reproduction:���  11 is understood   that Hon. R. 1'"-  Green,   commissioner   of  lands nnd  works,   has  almost    completed   his  plan lor the protection of the forests  of the province fiom   destruction byj  fire.    The outline   of  the   plan has  already    been    published    .in    The  Lumbennairand Contractor. '    ll is  believed thai it can   be satisfactorily  worked out and be the cause o( saving much ofthe forest wealth ofthe  province.      Mr.   Green   has   given,  the question   of. forest   (ires a great  deal of attention,   aud   the McBride  govern ment will be   able lo put the  measure he has fathered into execution,   .'h'or this he and   the government   will  deserve  the commendation  of  every   man in the province  who believes in -conserving the forests., one of our greatest   natural re-  sources.   - Tt   is,   so   to  speak,   the  'ready money' of the province.  The  84,000,000 of people of the United  States   have   reduced   their   -timber,  ���limilsdo a very small area, and the  'lime is   not   far   distant   when they  will be compelled to rely on Canada'  for   nearly  all .of  the   lumber they;  use.    .Already   the  price of lumber;  has   advanced   to  high figures, ow-'  ing   10   its ��� scarcity -in   the  United  States,     From now on  the  outlook  is'that  lumber will keep increasing  in value with   each   year.    The demand will be  so 'great that British  Columbia , will "be   paid  vast sums  for her timber.    Timber will materially aid in enriching the people of  the  province.     It   is  a   wise   and  statesmanlike measure of piecautiou  on the part of Mr. Green to endeavor to save  as  much   of our timber,  limits   as  possible from destruction.
