Tho Visitors From White Horse  Receivo a Warm Welcome���-  Report of the Games.  " V'eni, vidi, vici," in tlie language of Ctcsar, which, interpreted,  means, "I came, I , saw, I conquered," and thus we can express  the arrival and departure of the  Hockey team ot the Northwest  Mounted Police from White Horse.  Unfortunately, owing to the bad  weather the visitors were late in arriving on Monday, and the necessity of the Police having to report  for duty on Friday night, the full  programme- of arrangements prepared- could not . he carried out.  However, what , was done, was  "done to.'the King's taste,"  and a disposition shown to reciprocate the hospitality extended to  the Atlin team on their recent visit  to White Horse.  The visitors were- nine in number, seven of tire Police and Messrs.  Simpson and McKitmon of While  Horse. They came in via Caribou  with Dixon's team.-which-had been  sent out to meet them, and arrived  about 4.30 Monday afternoon.  They were assigned to their quarters and given the freedom of the  town.  To those who witnessed the practice by the Police team on Tuesday  morning, only one conclusion  could be come to, and that, that  the best team in the district could  not hold its own against them, and  furthermore, that the spectators  would be treated to such a game of  hockey as they had possibly never  seen before.  The first game was played on  Tuesday afternoon, on tlie new  rin*;, between Atlin and the  Police, and the following is the  personel and positions of the respective teams:  Atlin  Goal  Point  Cover Point  Center  "Rover  Right Wing    Harbottle  Left Wing Fowell  I-L Gil lard captained the  home team and Cor. T. M. Swift  that of the visitors.  The puck was faced, off at 2.43,  p.m., and from that moment till  time was called, the excitement was  intense. The Atlin goal was hard  pressed during the whole progress  of the game, and to the hard work  of Heal and Owen as Goal and  Point is it due that tlie visitors only  scored what they did, large as that  score was. ft was demonstrated  that   the    Police   could   skate   all  Heal  Owen  Lawrence  Nicoll  Kaye  Bourne  Gillard  Mr. J.  N.W.M.P.  Brick wood  Piercy  Swift  Johnstone  Ferris  round our boys, and that the home  team were but pigmies to the visitors. In spite of opposing odds,  Atlin put up a very fair defense,  and never lost heart. For two,  practically, novices at hockey,  Lawrence and Bourne put up a  very fine game, and generally, our  team undoubtedly did the best they  could. ' On the rare occasions when  the puck got near the visitors' goal  cries of'"shoot " were heard,, but  in an instant the scene was changed, and the shtot would be at the  other end. To the plucky play of  Gillard is due the only goal that  was really scored ��� the other was  -given. The score, at the call ot  time, stood 15 to 2 in favor of the  Police.  On Monday evening a ball was  held iu Pixon's Hall, which was  very largely attended and thorougl}--  enjoyed. An excellent supper was  provided by the ladies, to which  ample justice was done.  Tuesday morning thc Police-  were driven to Discovery, where u  game was played in the afternoon  against a local team, resulting in a  score "of 9 to o. Tfhe game was  divided into two halves of 20 min-  tues each, but if another 20 had  been played, the chances are the  score in favor of 'White Hors-,  might have been doubled.  A'Smoking Concert"in honour oi  the visitors was held at the Grand  Hotel on Wednesday evening, and  was very largely" attended. The  concert'was in every way a success.  Mr. Gillard occupied the chair.  The White Horse , team left or;  their return about 2 o'clock Thursday morning, and we fear they  must have had a very hard trip.  The wind was blowing a gale fiom  the north and. the thermometer 36  below. Up to a'latelast night they  had not reached. Caribou. Had it  not been for the storm they could  easily have made connection with  the train at that point.  REX vs SANGSTER.  A   Case   of   Defrauding   the  Revenue.  The First Conviction in Atlin for  a Case of Smuggling ��� W.  Sangster Fined $50.  The Canada Customs authorities  have lately been 'given to believe  that the smuggling of contraband  goods to Atlin from Skagway, via  the Warm Pass, has been in  vogue, and, in consequence, a strict  watch has been kept. The first to  fall into the clutches of the law was  William Sangster, who came in by  the Warm Pass,.but -did not meet.  with any request to pay duty. Fit-  was interviewed by ,the Magistrate,  had to payl $50 for his trip and  had to present his sled and dogs to  the Government. He now believes it  is cheaper to patronize the regular  trails. ...  --', ��� "-J  -Y/l  ..X'  'I  -;. *��-���!  ~X1$  ���������- 4j  i  -. 1!  ��ift��*?��t��m(��>Kyytf-4o  i��^:MM��eMi#tt��anr-*-tt^-7-  sgjisw;-;  mm  'MV^.^^TT'n^  ^S^&^0^2S2--  aisii^^jv^-i-^^ij^te^^ ���fit*  ATUN,   B.C..'

Exit   White   Labor,,  "To Hi-: or not   to  be," Japs or  no Japs-���-that is the question.-  '  The above sombre heading has  a gruesome look, but, figuratively  speaking, not more . gruesome than  the feelings' of every citizen iu thc  district -when the ill-favoured report that "The Atlin Mining Co. is  bringing in Japs," received confirmation from that company's  Manager, R. D. Fetherstonhaugh.  True, corporations have no soul,  hence our opinions and feelings in  Ibis matter were not asked, but  nevertheless, we presume our  mouth-piece with the company, its  Manager, might at least have dissuaded the directorate from inftict-  . ing such atdastardly scourge upon  ��� the miners of this section of B.C.  by openly showing a preference for  Oriental cheap' labor over white  ' men.  In a manner, Atlin is our birthright; we have one and all of us  sacrificed .home, friends and comforts, aye, and endured hardships,  privation and want, ( and now a  silver tip is .just showing above  the horizon; our pluck and energy  seems in a fair way to reap its  reward, bitt no, we are confronted  with "work for Japanese wages  or beg your way out."  As is the position of the vast  majority'of us, we look for wages  during the few months of the season to' enable ns to prospect and  open out our own properties during  ��� the rest of the year,'and thus prove  up the value of these and of our  district, but this threatened influx  of Oriental labor will undoubtedly  retard much of the camp's development during ensuing seasons.  ' It may be said- that the few japs'  who are now coming in will not  and cannot materially affect the  welfare of the district. This may  be very true, though the' principle underlying the first introduction of Oriental labor, theinsertion  of the thin edge 'of the. wedge, is  too probable to be the advent of the  coming of hordes of this unwelcome  class of laborers.  In our knowledge we know of no  mining camp in B. C, or, for that  matter, on the Pacific coast, where  the employment of. Oriental labor  has proved a. success, why then  look for it in Atlin.  It is much to be regretted that  the proposal arranged by the Citizens' Committee and Mr. Fether-'  stonhaugh could not be carried out,  and it is to be hoped that if the  .miners take the matter in their own  hands to send those Japs back, who  ' are now on the way, they will recollect that they are entitled by law  to the same protection as we are  ourselves, and that violence will  not be resorted to.  IN ��� MASS'ASSE1  Employment of Oriental   La-  : .bor Deprecated.  Explanation  by the  Atlin Mining  Company.  At the request of several citizens  .a public meeting was-called by the  Deputy Gold Commissioner, Mr. E.  J. Thain, for Wednesday . evening  at 7 o'lock, at the Court House.  In response to the call a very large  number of the business men and  miners turned up and even standing  room was at a-premium. The purpose of the meeting was to consider  and devise wa)-s and means of prevailing upon Mr. R. I). Felherston-  haugh, Manager7o'r the'Atlin Mining Company, to. 'send 'whence  they came, the 16 Japanese laborers he is reported lo .be importing;  or if he refuse,, to take steps to prevent their coming here,  ��� Mr. Thain was appointed to take  the chair -and D. Todd Lees was  called upon to act as Secretary.  After explaining the object of the  meeting, Mr. Thain called' wpon  Mr. Charles Myers, one of the instigators of the meeting, to further  elucidate the .purport of its call.  Mr. Kirkland stated that unless an  acknowledgment were made by Mr.  Fetherstonhaugh that he was bringing in Japanese' laborers, the meeting would have no business:  Mr. - Fetherst.anhqngh acknowr  Iedged that 16 Japanese laborers  were now on their .way from .Vancouver under contract to his cotu-  pany, and -explained that m contemplation of. increasing the capacity of the plant, .the necessity of  much additional skilled white labor  in consequence, and the yet uncertain nature'of the ground, he had  been instructed- by his- directors in  London to employ Oriental labor  for work on the flumes and* dump,  and had no voice in the matter but  to carry out these instructions. He  was prepared to guarantee that no  more Japs, but those now on the  way, would be employed, and, further, that if the-' property was this  season* put Tipon a paying basis  even these few Japs would be conspicuous' in'their absence next year-  Mr. Kirkland -commended Mr.  Fetherstonhaugh on his- manly acknowledgment and, explanation, but  strongly deprecated the introduction- of the " thin edge/' as it had  ever been the case, when once the  gates were opened to Oriental labor  they could never be closed- ' He  therefore begged to move the following resolution-.  Whereas, the Atlin Mining District is being threatened with an influx of cheap labor in the shape of  Japanese���the first contingent of  which, we understand, is being  brought into the camp by Mr. R.  D. Fetherstonhaugh to work the  property of which he is Manager*.  And whereas we deem that the  entrance of these will be but the  precursor of further contingents,  and the ultimate banishment of  the white laborer from our midst;  And whereas   we   deem   that  Hyldir-aulllcf   Miming  &  acmnery.
