" They  would, at best, possess only the e!e-  menls of expediency. They conk!  never possess elements of pennau-  auce and stability. It was impossible, it was impracticable, nay,more  il was unnatural. As individuals,  races'did not,and never would assimilate. As nations their ultimate  and individual destiny, their world  wide interests, their ' undying ambition, centered in points as opposite as the poles. -Canada recently  accepted this treaty-'made by Great  f'ritain. whether .this was done at  the request of the Imperial authorities or of her own volition mattered little. It was' claimed that trade  relations with Japan and ihe Orient  were of paramount importance. It  was found ou investigation that  trade with Japan was not an important factor. Japanese commercial aud manufacturing activities  were rapidly increasing, and those  who were then pressing for -trade  relations would, in a few years be  praying for relief, for protection  against the cheaper manufactures  of Oriental origin. The United  States was not disturbed over trade  relations with the Orient, and. why  should- Canada? Oriental trade  would flow'in the most favourable  competeing channels, and when we  consider that the ports ol" Vancouver, Victoria aud Alberni were 600  miles nearer Hongkong than San  Francisco, it gave Canada an undeniable advantage. And again,  Frince Rupert/with a harbor equalled by few ancl surpassed by none  in the North Pacific ocean, east or  west - aud he had visited all  those  of importance with   the  exception  i.  of Port Arthur and V'oladivostock -  Prince Rupert occupied a commanding position from the fact that  the distance to the Urieul was 350  mile's less than from Vancouver,  aud nearly 1000 miles loss than  from San Francisco. Prince Rupert, backed by the grain fields of  Alberta and Saskatchewan, equipped with elevators and terminal facilities, ' was destined to command  trans-Pacific trade, irrespective of  oriental restrictions. It had however, only taken a i'cw 'mouths experiment with this treaty to manifest the weakness of our position  in so far as immigration is concerned, and it had been found necessary to send a plenipotentiary in tiie  person of.the .Minister of Labor to  Japan with view to a more definite,  understand ing. That our representative lo Tokio would be firm,  even to the verge of failure, was  his hope for Canada at this time,  thus leaving the government iu a  position to carry out their avowed  policy of 1963, and he trusted rihat  legislation would ha introduced this  j session with .this,in view. Canada  I should not and must not recede  from Jus position that immigration  lo this country should be  controlled from within, not   from  without.  Other self governing colonies assumed and maintained, this position  That Canada, the connecting0 iink  of British dominion:*, should do  likewise was doubly imperative.  He noted in recent ��� press dispatches from Tokio a statement  credited to Baron Ishii, chief of the  bureau of commerce of the Japanese foreign office, who had just returned to Japan from a triy to the  United States and Canada, investigating the immigration   problem.  The essence of hisslatement was  that Japan would bow with deference to the wishes 'of the United  States and discontinue sending her  laborers to that country, but would  continue to send a limited ntimber  lo Canada. If this v/as correct,  that Japan had yielded to the wishes of the .United -Stales, ..disj-eg-ard-  ing the understanding with this  government as expressed 011. the  floor of this house, the position oi"  Canada as a colony of Great Britain was indeed humiliating. .It-  had beeu charged that the whole  question of Oriental immigration  was largely the result of labor agitations and labor unions. Speaking  for himself, the charge was absuru.'  The ������'���Isrest he had in this was a  uatiouai interest. In his coustil-  -ueucy lie had not even a labor union, much less a labor agitator.  He mentioned this matter oi local  interest to corroboorate what he  said. He had no sympathy with  mob demonstrations or mob violence, but he did sympathize with  legitimate agitation, the recognized  weapon of every free born Uritisii  subject. Were Canadians to stand  idly by and see our .Canadian national iife dragged down to the standard of a contract slave? Were we  to saddle upon our offspring and  the future generations of Canada.'  the blighting prospect of everlaot-  ing competition with the out-pourings of the Orient? Were we to-  allow our Dominion lo b_- sacrificed to commercial and corporati-jn  greed of expediency? \\ hy should  we not agitate for the future of our  country? Agitate for a 'A'hile Canada from Atlantic to Pacific? it  has been stated lhiil tin's was- a  problem for the west. '���-, ith that  he took exception, in his opinion  it demanded the highest consideration of s;atesmaii:'h..p and '-'.luia-  macy, both colonial and Imperial.

In another column is advertised,  on behalf of the Yukon Government, the sale of several well found  Launches; anyone of which, would  prove eminently serviceable to ply  on Atlin Lake.  Since the steamer 'Ruth', and  Mr. Smith's ' side-wheeler:, and  the schooner ' Lady of the Lake ',  and the Government sailing-boat  have been wrecked or put out of  commission, there have been very  few sea-worthy boats available to  carry prospectors, or hunters, bent  on exploring the numerous inlets  and islands in the distant portions  of the Lake.  It is computed that the Lake has  about 500 miles of coast-line, including the inlets and islands, a  very small portion of which has  been explored or prospected. It is  also recognised, that many of the  more distant creeks carry goid; and  it is well known that a great number of mineral claims, bearing high  values in gold, silver, and copper,  have from time to time, been located on and near the lake-shores;  and, that specimens of coal and  good coal formations have been  found close to the southern shores  of Ihe Lake.  Taking these facts into consideration, we beg, in the interests of  the district, to suggest to the public  that, ways'aud means be found to  effect the purchase ot one of the  Yukon Government's Launches,  (about to be sold by lender,) for  service on Lake Atlin.  Independent of the needs of explorers, there is no telling, when  the presence of a strong sea-worthy  boat, may prove to be the.means of  -saving many lives from drowning,  ���or, people in distress from wrecking.  And, supposing, (.)'Donnell river  develops this year into a prosperous  ���camp, as in al! probability it will,  .and as anticipated by Mr. McKee  .and his friends, there must foll-w a  ���considerable passenger, and load  traffic over the lake course to the  ri vur. .  it is also frequently important  thai government officials, in Ihe execution of peremptory orders, be  able 10 sceme the services of a  ���'���..eedy boat, which can cross the  lake in rough weather.

Timber has beeu ancl will be, so  long as man requires houses to  shelter him, implemeoils which he  may use for'agriculture- or industries, one of the greatest needs of  the world. *Iircountries where the  forests have long beeu used, such  as a great part of Europe, aud they  are no longer capable of supplying  the needs of the inhabitants, efforts  ha*e been made to take stock of  the world's timber supply to ascertain from what source the deficiency is ito be supplied.  As a European writer has said,  " It is profoundly disquieting to  ascertain that 215 millions of inhabitants oi Europe constituting  the nations where commeice aud  industry have attained the greatest  power do not find euoi-gh of wood  for manufacturing purposes in the  forests of the territories which they  occupy.'''  No country in Asia, except  Russia, is able to furnish more than  its own requirements. Neither  from Africa nor South America can  an adequate supply be obtained.  Australia can furnish little. The  countries which have a great excess  ���of production are only seven in  number; live in I'uropc: Austria-  Hungary, Norway, Sweedeu, Fin-  hiud and Russia; and two in North  Aiiieiica, the United States and  Canada. The increase of population and theidwelopmeiu of industry i*i Austria-Hungary, in Russia,  and :in Ihe United Slates will soon  reduce lliem to the level of noii-ex-  porling counliies, Sweedeu, Finland and Canada are the only  countries that have a certain future  ,ij timber producers.

The Canadian  forests are, however, producing a  great deal more timber by yearly  growth than is cut from them.  If this could be kept up perpetually there would always be a sufficient supply; but fires are destroying considerable areas, almost e*.ery  year, and, as the forests of Europe  ��� and the United States become depleted, the quantities required for  trade will increase every year.  ' To meet this demand will require  that tlie forests be-thoroughly protected from lire, and ���'-���thai every  effort be made to assist ��a new  growth to follow that which is  being cut away.  } CONSUMPTIVES.  PRISONERS. AND THE  POLICE.  To the Editor,  Atlin Claim.  Sir,  It is stated iu the press that a  detective of eighteen years experience had great difficulty iu making an'alleged boy murderer confess. Now Sir, there must be some  very serious error in reportiug the  circumstances,or otherwise a detective "of eighteen years, experience "  should be prevented from arresting  another prisoner.  It cannot be too plainly stated  that the police have no authority to  make any prisoner confess a crime,  and the criminal code of Canada,  Section 591, .sets out very clearly  how a prisoner mt.st be treated in  regard to any statements he may  make.  " A confession of a prisoner is  only admissable when free and voluntary. It must not 'be extorted  by inducements or threats. R. v  Elliott, 31 O. R. 14- R. v Day, 20  O. R. 209; R. v Viau, 7 Q, Q- B-  362; li. v Thompson(iS93), 2 Q. li.  12; 17 Cox C. C. 641; R. v Jackson,  2 C. C. 149; R v Rose, 67 L.J. Q-  li. 2S9; R. v Mcdonald, 16 C. L. T.  Occ. N. 396; 32 C. L. J. 783-  Any inducement to confess held  out lo the prisoner by a person in  authority, or any undue compulsion'  upon him, will be sufficient to exclude the confession."  There aie many more authorities  and cases bearing upon this question, but, perhaps, it is 'not necessary to go into ihem, as, iu the interests of the people, the press will  probably think it coincides wilh  their duty to emphasize the fact  that a prisoner, even if he wishes to  make a statement voluntarily, musL  be warned hy the police officer in  whose charge he is, that any statement he may make will be taken  down in writing, and may be used  against him on his "trial.  Frank Richards, J. P.  Vancouver, B.C.,  ���    -Jany; "1st. 190S.  Note:-  That a case of this kind, in the  20th. century, should require publicity, seems strange. The "Law  of Evidence " is perfectly clear; and  precludes any possibility of doubt,  as to how far Ihe authority of police  officials extends.  - /   '    Ed.
