Neither abuse nor flattery will  deter ' Thc Claim ' from the duty  of publishing, what we believe to  be correct facts, however stubborn  they may appear; and, at tire same,  , time we shall expose'what.we deem  to be erroneous judgments ou the  issues of the day.  We are trot subservient to capitalists, nor, to airy political party;  we live in a free country, with a  free press; and, we intend to fully  exercise the privileges we'enjoy,  Orrr readers may see us through  various coloured spectacles, but we  firmly assure them, our only object  in view is to promote the progress  of the district on clear straightforward lirres.  This brief explanation arises from  recent correspondence appearing in  these columns.  We are always ready to hear the  \ opinions of our fellow citizens, and  to afford them oppcrtotrities to publish the same, although, their ideas  may be opposed lo our own; 'but,  we wish to point out the 'necessity  of adhering, as far. as possible, to  facts; nnd more particularly so,  when they'venture into the realms  of reasonable criticism.  Irr tli is issue wc are pleased to  publish a letter from Mr. Kirkland.  He does not require introduction",  for we all know him as an ardent  politician arrd a poprrlar pioneer of  pioneers.  We regret that our space is too  limited to do full justice to the  merits of his letter, so we will only  refer to the personal criticism with  which he favours   us.  His letter,'amongst other things,  comments on our having 'circulated  a petition, (since, many moons have  passed), with regard to Orientals  Now as far as we ' can recollect,  that petition was serrt up from Victoria to Atlin for signatures: we do  rrot remember any reference- in it.  being made lo Orientals; but think,  wc are quite correct in stating, that)'  its object was solely to facilitate the  immigration of Europeans into British Columbia.  Wc most heartily agree with Mr.  Kirkland's interpretation of lhe  word" menial'; and we are Hor  aware of having used it in any other  sense.  King Carlos.  >W*L  Fresh .Fruit and Vegetables  During the past few months, lhe  late King, Carlos, was in difficulties  for he was attempting to rule Portugal without a parliament --'- for  its own good; the political parties  have beerr playing into one another's  hands  for years.  He probably got his instincts for  ruling from his Sax-Coburg grandfather, Prince Ferdinand, who married Maria II. His own mother  was air Italian and his widowed  Queen, Marie Amelia, is French.  The late King reigned for eighteen years. His eldest son, who  was likewise victimized by the assassins, was the Duke of Braganza,  he would have attained his majority  next month.  We gather from European reports  that a decree was' lately issued  applying to political offences, the  proceedure' governing Arrarchisl  crimes and making them subject to  special jurisdiction. This, apparently, was the cause for some of the  Judges resigning.  In consequence of the crisis in  the wine trade a decree .'was- issued  suspending vine-planting for three  years.- Arrd a decree was published  for the reform of the Chamber of  Peers.  It is said that only 20   per  cent  of  tiic population can read arrd write.

Now, Mr. Editor, we pass on ton  more serious question effecting the  whole Province.- In an editorial of  a late date'you have exlribiu-d youi  pro-Jap proclivities, and been criticised in a later issue by our esteemed neighbour, Holmes Pineo. You  find favour in the London Times,  and other papers of that kidney;  subsidized capitalistic supp irters.  Your1 whole argument seems to  hang on the point, lhat England  must live up to the 'spirit of her  treaties. Mr. I.\dilor, if you have  rem I modern history, you will know  that England has only beerr too  rcaily to break every important international treaty where she has  had to choose between a rise or  fall, arrd the present situation looks  like the latter, or at least to lose her  first colony.  Now, Mr. Editor, there are yourself aird some others, who are, arrd  always were strong pro-Japs, more  especially yourself, agairrst, probably, 95 Per cent of the people here.  We have not forgotten that the  majority does not rule, -with 3-011,  , when you saw fit, in your wisdom,  to persist in circulating a petition  asking for the introduction of Japanese, at a time wlrerr the feeling  -berewas at fever heat'over that  ver3" same question.  Mr. Editor, we cannot subsidize  your paper; iro doirbt Japanese sympathizers will; nor cio we warrt to  cut off your livelihood,.but the producer, arrd the'aiiti-Japanese, which  means all but Iwo or three large operators irr the Camp, (some equally  as large operators have refused to  employ them) take exception to  your paper advocating Orientals lor  menial labour: tuere.. is rrot any-  thing too mean for a white man to  do, providing that it is honest, and,  Hi at he receives full value, for his  work.   - ,  Mr. Editor, you certainly have  the cheek of " Thei- vjphynx " to  hold as you do so strong agairrst  the concensus of opinion, so strong  'amongst the majority of this Province.  Tlie producer must be strictlj-  proiected, if we are to prosper as a  while prpubrce, whether England  in her treat}' rights is correc!, or,  has made a mistake.
