In Mr. Gaims' logical letter,  which appears in' another column,  he brings to notice some original,  and at'the same time intelligible,  ideas with regaid to 'solving the  labour problem.       "     ,  Undoubtedly it is the 'duty of "a  government to' guide and protect  people iu the way they should go,  and, of course, governing powers  can do much in this direction, but,  they cannot do all!  We agree with our correspondent  that, the Natal Act is not likely to  have the desired effect 01 suppressing an excessive supply of Asiatic  labourV other measures ' must be  found ��� even if they are somewhat  experimental ��� and the proposition  to increase1 the wages of Asiatics on  the-lines suggested by Mr: Gairns,  we think, is well worthy of the consideration of politicians and statesmen.  If no strong argument can be opposed to the policy; no doubt the  government, wouldy-with the consent of the electorate, adopt it and  give it a fair trial.  Whether the majority of white  labouiers would consent or not it is  ^rather difficult to say.' It is well  kuown that many hard working  men are opposed to ai^ interference  whatever on the part of governments with regard to the wages for  which they are prepared to work;  and, there are others who are satisfied with enough to keep them alive  and able to work until they can  work 110 more; and, there are still  some blessed men, who, arc fanatical workers, and strive for more than  money ��� to whom Work aud Worship are synonymous terms.

Dr.  Young, in regard to the Tagish  Road and Atlinto River, was laid  before the Boaid, and on being read  produced considerable discussion. -  Mr. Eggert moved, seconded by  Mr. Dowling, that, ^the Secretary  should acknowledge Dr. Young's  letter and thank him for his suggestions.     ,i\   "  It was also moved by -Mr. Eggert,  and seconded by Mr. Faulkner, that  a committee be named "to communicate with Mr. Law and the Yukon Council with the view of enlisting their interest iu, and, having  a road built from Carcross to the  B.

'  The question of the purchase by  the Government of one of the Launches offered for sale 'by the N. W.  M.

To the Editor,  Atlin Claim.  Sir, _    -  During the tin moil occasioned by  the influx of Asiatics, and the subsequent seeking after a reasonable  solution ol the problem, both by  the Dominion and by the Provincial  Houses oi Parliament; two things  vveie bon.e in upou my mind :���  One is - Aie governments elected  by the people to look arier the  people's interests, and to guard  them from airy causes, whatsoever,  which would woik out the degradation of the people they represent ?  -then, to my mind, il that is so, the  permanent solution of the difficulty  is not iai to seek.  A fan wage, and reasonable comfort in life, is the best way to raise  any people to a higher standard of  life, both mentally, morally and  physically; aird, lhe darrgeis of lhe  Asiatic invasion lie, not so much in  rheir numbers, as, in their ability to  lower the wai>e, thereby 1 educing  the coinfoits ot life to a minimum,  or, lather, wiping them out altogether <nrd degrading the people of  this Country as a whole, into a COii-  n/Iacking    Bird       Mineral       Claim.

Chisel.  K50 St  dition that we find only amongst  the slum dwellers of the great cities  today.  Now it should not be haid for  any Government, having the genuine interests of the people at heart,  to make a law, compelling all lhe  employers of laDour who employ  Asiatics, to pay these people what  would constitute a living wage to  the whites, - say, for instance, that  the B. C. Government stipulated  that all employers of Asiatics should  pay them $3 per day of 10 hours,  fully that, - and fine them twice  thai amount for every day worked  at a lower rale.  -Under these conditions, I do not  think that thc white labourer would  find it hard to compete with the  yellow; and, I am sure that a measure of this kind would not bring  about any International complic  ations, and would as effectually  stop Asi.rtic invasion as airy Nalal  Act, or, any ton of Natal Acts that  the B. C. Government Could bring  up.  Concluded on Page A.

C. ? If that is so, again I say  the best way to look after this class  Is to exclude  the .Asiatic   by   the  ���--higher-wage clause.  - .The exploiters of labour In B. C.  should bear in mind, that the white  labourers are also the consuming  class, to whom, the manufacturers  expect to sell the finished article;  the Asiatic, as a rule gels his supply of the necessities of life from  whichever country hebelongsjlliere-  fore, bypassing a higher wage clause  the government would save this  class of capitalist who would like to  flood the country with this cheap  labour from committing industrial  suicide.  So anyway yon look at lhe matter, there seems only one course to  pursue - To make it compulsary  for employers  to   pay   any   wage,  ��� whereby Asiatic labour would be  rendered unprofitable to these,  otherwise .selfish exploiters.      l  Your9 etc.  Charles Gairus.
