' It .appears he wished to  get a bed but being in an intoxicated state he was refused. ��� Not content, however, he stole upstairs and  made himself comfortable between  the sheets, boots and all. This was  too much of a strain on Mr. Rox-  borough, and Mr. Swede was summarily ejected.  To get even, so it is supposed, he  started a fire in a back room of the  hotel, close to where some gasoline  was stored. He theu proceeded to  the warehouse, which is built into  the bill, and with a pick smashed  in a hole in the door big enough to  crawl through. Here another fire  was kindled. Fortunately both the  fires were discovered and extinguished before any damage was done.  At the trial-held in Discovery  Thursday forenoon, the accused was  given thirty days with hard labor.  He can do a little thinking while he  is drawing a1 piece of thin steel  notched on one edge back and forth  across government cordword. He  may thank his lucky star he got off  so lightly.  , 'Rev.

T11 reference to the enquiry of  "Seeker After Truth," appearing  in this issue,'we say. in answer:  There was and is an order-in-  council to the effect that any and  all public servants should acquiru  110 interests in mining properties,  but, should they wish to become  possessed of property then the hc:id  of the department must be made  aware of the transaction and give  sanction' to same.  This ruling" was intended to and  does safeguard the interests and  rights of individuals. ��� It put a stop  to talk about officials being prejudiced in their own favor, and had  the effecL of inducing officials to  mind their own business, i. e.., the  duties of their position. In other  words, it checked a tendency on the  part of public servants to look after  their own welfare at the expense of  the unknowing and unthinking  public; thereby assuring a better  and a cleaner adiriinistration of om  public affairs.  Though  not   the wording of the j  order-in-council  the above is about  the meaning  it  intends  to convey  -  and the good  that followed.    That  there  are  breaches of the order-iu-  council   by  public  servants \\\e  do  ��� not doubt.     The  best laws in the  world will not keep some people in  the straight  road,  because they are  just naturally crooked.    Public servants are no more exempt from- .this  than any other cktss.  Just exactly why Ihis letter was  sent to us for publication we caiiiiot  as yet fathom. We answer the  question as fully as is in our power.  We cannot say that we know of  any transgression of the order-in-  council by public servants in the  Atl'iirdislrict. There is no attitude  of defence iu this for anyone, it h  simply a declaration [of our belief in  the honest efforts of our local public  servants. And we will continue to  think so till it is proven otherwise.  Re Public  Servants.

Japanese Invasion of B.C.  We do not think there is auy^  ' hotter way of expressing our views  on the invasion of British Columbia  by the Japanese, than by republishing some of the views of B. C.Sati,  uulay Sunset while commenting on  the demonstration at Vancouver  occasioned bj- the visit of Prince  Fushimi:  - "Quite recently the white section  of this city had   the felicity of vievv-  '   ing in a mass the greater portion of  ' .qur-Japanese fellow British Coliim-  .bians. IXbtiletions'of brotherly feeling were not conspicuous either 611  .the part oflhe little brown processionists" 'or of the white spectators.  In fact the strutting, banzaing,'paper lam-ecu bearers aroused absolute-  ly no other sentiment than curiosity  ' and subdued resentment. Also- the  presence of four "or five thousand  little brown men in a bunch was a  fairly impressive ��� demonstration of  the fact that British Columbia is beting pretty effectively invaded. Considering that we are -a-city of -ahout  70,000, that we - are' hardly-'old  enough to vote and can produce on  suitable provocation'a procession, of  brown celebrationists such as paraded our streets a short time ago, it  must  be' admitted ,we .are' ''going  ��� some.  - The. labored, effort put forth by a  contemporary to show that Japan is  ��� a great nation and that because it is  \ , -  .a great nation and the ally" of Great1  *���  Britain, that we  should accept  the  Japanese as our equal's is apiece of  impudent silliness. Lam sufficiently medieaevilist in .my notions to'  discredit that hoary slop about all  men having been born free and  equal. The Jap,- Chinaman, negro  nor any other colored race is the  equal of any white race, and it is  not in the course bf nature;that it  should be.  Because Great Britain forms an  alliance with a tribe of naked sav-'  ages in Fast or. Central Airica, or  with a tribe of painted Indians, as  she has done in the past years, there  is no reason why we Canadians  should .be,asked to fraternize with  them or accept them as either social  or political equals.  ' iVaccepY them as equals implies  giving them the franchise. .-It'also  makes possible that most repulsive  o'f all the'^rcsults of fraternizing with'  inferior peppjes,  the-mixiug of the  and variegated assortment of Orien-  t.ils.., We.,haye ourtiirbaned fellow  iBriiiaiier,s ��j;om India and"our'pig-  tailed..brothe'rs in empire from Hong  Kong and ^Shanghai. We have  the Empire's allies from the flowery  "kingdom and numerous others. But  because- we belong to the same  great and glorious Empire to which  we are all proud to belong, there is  no reason why we should embrace  or slop over fellow.subjects who are  in no sense, one with us either in  sentiment .or .physical or mental  affinities. "  Those same people who gush over  about the greatness of our allies or  fellow subjects and crave our consideration . of them as our equals  would-hardly''think of -admitting  the cook to their table or the footman,to their.drawing room. Yet',,  because a man comes>'to us as the  prince-of a people of newly initiated  Western progressiveness, we''are  asked to do him deference as such.  Prince Fushimi conducted himself .as became a gentleman representing a-great nation, and as such  he was oflicially received and treated iu Canada:, To assume that he  was received with spontaneous enthusiasm by_ the people at large  would' be to brand Canadians as  snobs and knee-benders, which they  .neither, .showed . themselves to be,-  nor are, \'   .    ���  We'have"'-'the. Jap's.'trie Chinese  and the Hindus and- with them we  have problems. That they are or  are not a necessity "is a question. If  they are, it is our misfortune and  adds nothing to the homogeniety of  our people, nothing to our free institutions, nothing to the elevation,  of our mental,- moral and physical  standards, We simply have to bear  with them until we cau do without  them, and the'man, public or, private, .vho can. show this province  how to dispense with Oriental labor  and keep Orientals out of the province will be its greatest benefactor  iu  every .sense  in  which the word  -.ysrrrjm* 13.7-.-t.t^ t .,.���- jj .v^tv-  'THE ATLIN TRADING  '��� CO.,LD,  It lias been decided, at a meeting of the  shareholders" of the" Atlin Trading' Com-'  pany, Limited,, held on Tuesday, afternoon^  June 4th, 1907, to   wind  up  the affairs of  the company.
