For the last three weeks .the citizens of the district have been"great-  Iv exo-cised over the action of one  of the foremost mining companies  ���The Atlin Mining Co.���by its  bavins: entered into a contract with  a number of Japanese laborers, and  indignation mass meetings have  been the order, of Uie "day. Many  of these meetings have been fully  reported iu the columns. of the  Claim, but the climax was reached  last Ty'iday. when the creeks sent  their quota of- miners, organized  into a body, to endeavour to persuade the Japs that Atlin was a  very unhealthy country���for them.  The bait took, and now the Japs  are basking in the sun of the sunny  south, doubtless retailing this inhospitable clime of snow and ice to  their fellow-countrymen���they cannot say enough bad about us aud  the district.  Naturally, Mr. Fetherstonhaugh,  Manager of the company, endeavored to explain the position ot his  company in the matter of the employment of Japanese, but he was  practically powerless in view of the  public feeling against them, and  had, eventually,, to give way to  popular sentiment. Iir an interview he expresses himself, thus:  "I left with Mr. Plum be for McKee creek about'2 a.m. on Saturday morning last, and arrived there  at 5.30. The situation when I arrived was as follows: The miners  were loading the Japs''baggage on  a sleigh, brought down for the purpose, the Japs were all in front of  the boarding house alone. I asked  the interpreter what the trouble  was, and he slated that all these  men had come down to tell them  they had lo go out, but said, for  himself, he was not afraid, but the  rest of the men were scared and  had agreed'to go out in the morning, the miners having agreed to  pay their expenses. By this time  the crowd of over too men were  coming up. . I told the interpreter  to tell his men that there was nothing to fear as I would not allow  anyone to touch them and told him  to ask his men if they were willing  to go to work.,    He came back and  said to me that, now that I was  therewith" them, ' they were not  afraid and would go lo work. I  told him then lo lake his nioii to  the log house, which he did. The  crowd then came up and I went  out to meet 'them and asked who  their spokesman was? They replied that they were all-spokesmen.  I said, ���"��� T.s this' mil a verv highhanded proceeding to ��� take, , lo  come on a mans;, property and take  his men away."- They replied that  the men had agreed to go. L told  them that .the men told ine they  were ���frightened last' night at so  many men-, but that now they were  prepared. to go- to work and that  they were all- in the.house, and I  would not allow.them to-go- . They  said that '-the. "Japs.would not'say  that'to them. I sent for and brought  out the iuterpreler and asked him  in front of the miners if the}- wanted  to go to work. Then the miners  started talking to the interpreter  asking him if he had not promised  them last night to go' out. He  said that last night his men were  afraid and had agreed to go out, ^  but that, now they .were not afraid  and-they owed the company money  and wanted ��� to- go to work. 1 reminded the'inen of the arrangement  made at the meeting in Atlin. Mr.  Ward said that .that arrangement  was not ��� authorized by the Miners'  Association, and- that the committee appointed was not appointed by  the Miners' Association. ��� Mr.  Ward then stated .011 behalf of the  Miners'-Association that he iully  realized that, they could not take  these men away without my consent. A general clamour ensued,  everybody- speaking at once. [  then told Mr. Ward that nothing  could be accomplished -with that  crowd, but that ii"a small commit-,  tee were appointed to confer with  me I would see what could be done,  which they did. The result of  that conference was that I consented to allow 15 of the Japs to go,  retaining the two cooks, ou condition that they would pay their expenses from the mine to Vancouver  anda guarantee from the Miners'  Association that if I brought iu  white lalxir at $2 a day they  would take no action ' to prevent it.

Congratulations are iii order  lo the miners, the merchants and  ihe people of Atlin upon the efforts  put forth and the success achieved  in dealing with the importation and  deportation of Japanese labourers.  Tti lhe worid it has been shown  thai Ibis cam]) at least is not in  sympathy with the Anglo-Japanese  Alliance, in as far as ' the eniploy-  mentiof Japanese as labourers in  our industries is concerned.  The courteous treatment which  the Atlin Mining Company's Japs  received at our hands is a strong  proof that, no matter how bitter our  feelings against their presence here,  the .citizens under the most trying  /circumstances respect the laws of  the land. The tactics pursued by  the miners last week is in strong  contrast to what were liable to have  been used by our neighbours on  tbe other side of the line, and  will show to them that the people  'of British Columbia are ever ready  fo resent a wrong and that there  are ways of doing, it other than recourse lo force or bloodshed.  The Skagway press, ever ready  to be-little Britain or the British,  must be prepared to pay tribute to  our methods of- lawfulness as in  contrast with the tactics of Soapy  Smith & Co., resorted' to in Skagway not so ' very long ago. The  "Alaska Travelers'Guide" of 17th  ' inst, would-thus guide public opinion: 't Atlin is a hoodoo, of a mining camp. First, the Canadians  drove out all the white men with  their Exclusion Act, and now they  are taking in Japanese to work in  the mines. Some say there will be  trouble when they arrive there, but  there will not. The miners will  take their medicine ��� like little men.  They are accustomed to having  policemen stand over them with  club's and they will meekly submit  . toanything."  This first experience of insisting  upon our rights as Free Miners has  imposed a somewhat heavy tax upon our slender resources, and reckoning up the miners' time and  other expenses incidental - to sending the Japs back to Vancouver, it  has co-il the camp all of $2000.  It is gratifying to learn thatboth  of our local members  in the House  .brought   the    matter   of   Oriental  labor in Atlin before the attention of  the    Government    and.  that   Mr;  Stables has: the  following question  upon   the   table   for  reply by the  Premier:  "What   action   (if  any)  ..  has' the  Government taken with a  ;   view to discouraging or preventing  the introduction   of  Japanese into  the Atlin District:"   ���  Get your friends to subscribe for  ''The Atlin Telegraphic Bulletin',"  published every Wednesday.  That the question of the employment of Oriental or other undesirable labour in the Province of Biit-  ish Columbia is receiving attention  from the local Government is fully  evidenced by a glance at the "Proceedings" of the Mouse. A few  extracts from these should not be  amiss at this time: An-timendrjicnl.  to the adoption of the Speech from  the Throne was moved by Mr.  Helmcken, and .duly seconded, is  as follows: .  " Whereas resolutions have been  passed, by this Honorable House,  praying the Dominion Government  to enact such legislation as will  prevent the immigration into this  Province of the citizens of the Empires of Japan and China:  " And whereas the Dominion  Government has .disallowed the  Acts known as the ' British Columbia Immigration ..Act, 1900,' and  the 'Labour Regulation Act, 1900':  "And whereas the Dominion of  Canada and the Province of British  Columbia have shown their loyalty  and devotion to ' .'the cause of the  Empire, and His Majesty the King  has had signal - proofs of such  loyalty:  "And whereas the people of the  Province of British Columbia have  an admitted grievance by reason of  their attempts to protect themselves  against the immigration of citizens  of the Empires of Japan and China  into this Province being frustrated:  "And whereas the Right Honorable the Premier 'of the Dominion  of Canada has accepted an invita-.  tion to be present ait the coronation  of Our Most Gracious Sovereign  King Edward VII., and it is also  proposed by the Colonial Premiers  to hold a conference in the City of  London, England, "after the core-  nation: ' ,  " Be it therefore- Resolved, That  an humble Address be presented to  His Honour the Lieut.-Governor,  requesting him to . communicate  with the Right Honorable the Premier of Canada, asking him at such  conference to bring to the attention  of the Colonial Premiers the question of the admission into Canada  of the citizens of Japan and China,  and to use their influence to cause  the Imperial Government to take  such steps with the Governments  of Japan and China as will enable  the question.to be governed in such  manner as will best accomplish this  object."  Bills, Nos. 14 and 15. entitled  respectively, "An Act relating to  the employment on Works carried  on under Franchises granted by  Private Acts," and "An Act to  Regulate Immigration into British  Columbia," are now before the  Legislature and at the last  advice, had gone through their  first ancl second- readings.

The real difficulty in the  in the ' path of peace,   he  believes,  is the question oi granting amnesty  to Cape   and   Natal   rebels, while  vague promises by the British Government will not carry the slightest  weight with' the fighting  burghers.  Goldie  advocates   the   granting of  amnesty but  insists that every one  must be disfranchised for life.  This  he claims would go  far towards allaying  the  bitterness of the royalists:    He   estimates   that    100,000  armed   men   will   be   required  in  South Africa   for   years  after  the  conclusion of peace.

The following report ,of the  .committee ol miners has been handed us. and as it gives the miners'-  side of the matter, we have much  pleasure in publishing it. The  committee was composed of: II. K.  Ward, Discovery, John A. Clark -  son and Johnston Woods, Spruce  creek:  "When, lhe   miners  'arrived at  McKee creek-they   bad a talk wilh  the Japs, who  agreed    lo   leave on  the   following -morning.      Iu    the  morning, when   all   the baggage ol  the Japs was   loaded- on lhe sleigh,  Mr. Felhcrsloiihiuigh   appeared  on  the   scene.      lie   asked   who   the  spokesman   of. the crowd was, and  Mr. Ward replied   that they can all  speak if they want to.   Mr. Fether-  stonhaugh, ' What  do you want or  what did \-oii come for? Mr. Ward,  ' We came for   these   Japs?'     Mr.  P., 'Well, you   are    not  going   to  have them.    Do you not think this  is rather   a   high-handed   piece of  business?' .    Mr.    W.,    'I     don't  know;   I   think   not.'    With   this,  Mr. Fetherstonhaugh    put   all the  Japs into a log cabin.    The Crowd.  ' We came here   to  get   the   Japs,  and we are not going   till   we   gel  them and we are   prepared   to stay  as long as   you  like.    We  can get  lots   of   provisions, so il rests with  you how long   we   remain, but wc  thought we would like to get away  some   time   today.'    Mr.   P.   then  asked the miners to appoint a committee   to   confer  with    him.    He  then   lighted   a   fire in a Lent and  asked   the   committee to  come in.  Before this,   Mr.' Fcthevstonhaugh  had told them that he had paid -the  Japs $30 each   advance   wages aud  he   wanted   that   refunded.      The  Com.,   'That is out of the question;  \ve are all   poor  men and we don't  propose   to   reimburse  anyone  lor  the mistakes'  they   make.    Would  you have "any' objections to the Officers listening   to the.'discussion of  the  Committee ?'    Mr. F.,"'" What  do you -want them  in for?'     Com.,  'There might  be some trouble and  to avoid such we would like'to have  the   Officers.'    Mr.   Owen did not  .want  to'go iu.'but was appealed to  by the   Committee   as an officer of  the law.    Mr. Owen went in.    The  Committee then.asked 'Mr. F. what  kind   of a ��� proposition . he   would  make, and  lie replied,-'How about  allowing me two Japs for servants?  This was not received   favorably at  first, but was soon agreed to. Then  Mr. F. spoke, again  about the $30  advance,   :but   the.Committee _ informed, himthat.he', need not refer  to that'��� again- as-   they  would not  entertain,-such a proposition   for.a  moment.       Mr.  F., ' What excuse  ami to make to  my 'Company for  the   discharge   of     these    japs?'  Com.,   ' Write to the Company and  tell them that  the   white men had  sent the  Japs out, aud  every man  will sign it.'    Mr.   F.   then   asked  the Committee if they would guarantee   him   white  men  at $2.50 a  day and boaid until   the opening of  L  Dry   Goods,  Special Bargains in Clothing  .'IHi&wsse  Hoots ��� and  Shoes.  t��*  Jt>  t*  OUR    PRICES  ARE   THE   LOWEST.
