[fH'KOIAh TO run OliAI.U.l  Victoria, May 1; (Special.)���Tlie  'present provincial 'government has,  at all times,- taken the stand against  the employment of Oriental labor,  and lias at each, session passed legislation to exclude such immigrants  and lias tried every means to keep  these people out of ��� the country.  The government at Ottawa have  'disallowed such acts as were passed  by this government and refused an  amendment to the Grand .Trunk  Pacific charter introduced- b/ Mr.  Earle, of Victoria, whereby the employment of Orientals was prohibited .The, result is that British  Columbia will be over-run during  the coming summer,' as the Japanese government has raised the embargo which prohibited emigration  from Japan, and advices show that  some thousands are ou their, way ..to  work on the -construction of ,the  Grand Trunk Pacific. Once they  are in the country the provincial  government has absolutely no power to control their movements in any  way. H. E. .Young.  It might be a good idea to. wire  Mr. Sloan, our representative at  Ottawa, and obtain his opinion of  the vexed "question.  Ferine, May 3.���The coal strike  situation is still unchanged. The  miners and.operators have failed to  reach an agreement.  ' Ottawa, May 3.���The house pro-'  rogued on Saturday, April the 27th.  Fielding and Fisher leave for England to join Laurier. The legislative results for the past five month's  session include only three measures  of any importance. The revision of  the tariff, the increase of the provincial subsidies and the labor bill.  Vancouver, May 3.���The carpenters' strike which began a month ago  is ended. The men asked for $4.50  a day, but will resume work nt  $.|.oo per day until August ist,  when the wages will be increased to  "tfi   oc  Jp+- -���>���  Rome, May 3.���Mount Stromboli  is becoming active. A snow storm  is raging, and a panic prevails.  Many people were injured during  the excitement.  Montreal, May 3.���Owing to the  trouble that occured, last year the  mayor prohibited the socialists to  parade last Monday.  .Vienna, May 3.���A revolt has  taken place and a grave political  crisis is imminent at Montenegro.

Nanaimo May 3.���A wealthy  Chinaman named Mali Boch committed suicide here a few days ago  by hanging himself to the limb of a  tree by his queue.  "London, "May -3.7���Sir Wilfrid  Laurier addressing " the Canadian  Club said he had no fear of Canada  ever becoming Americanized.  ' Chicago, May 3.���Charles Gates  & Co., probably the largest brokerage firm in the world, has failed,  owing $90,000,000 on Wall street.  Toronto, May 3.���There is a milk  famine here owing to the trouble  between the producers aud the distributors.  ' St.. John, May 3.���It' is now  learued that the Hon.' A. G. Blair  left an estate valued at $200,000.  The general impression was' that-he  died a poor man.  Recent Arrivals.  The Public Meeting.  Kenny McLaren arrived Thursday. He is looking fine after his  holidays.  Alex. Alliott, of Spruce, and Pete  Gabrio came in over the Fautail  Saturday night.  Captain Bragg was in town during the week. Pie reports the  Scotia as -almost ready to take to  the water, though she's still 'on ice.'  .Miss Carrie Doelker returned to  Atlin on Saturday last after an absence .of eighteen months. Her  many friends welcome her return.  Saturday's stage: Ed. Helgren,  Oscar Wilcox, W. C. G. May, Ed.  Telford, Archie Beatty, Jack McDonald, John Stronach, Bruce Anderson, Jack Buchanan and Miss  Carrie Doelker.  . T. Obalski, manager of Boulder  Creek Hydraulic Co., accompanied  by Mrs. Obalski, arrived last Saturday; also Georges Krivocha'pkinc,  an eminent mining engineer, and  Georges Mainnet. Konrad Waw-  recka and Joe. Traber brought the  party in. It is understood work on  Boulder will begin at once.  On Tuesday's stage: T. D. Harris, manager of the A. C. M. Co.,  operating the steam shovel on Tar  Flats, and his brother Chas. Harris.  George I. Wallace, secretary of the  company; H. T. Currie, and M. P.  Flanagan, engineers for the shovel;  A. J. Bedard, cranesman; and R. A.  Merrithew. R. M. Teer, cook for  the Scotia.  There are two or three places  about town where a guard rail at  the edge of the sidewalk would be  a great help in warding off the possibility of accident. One place is  at the Grand, on First., street, aud  the other at the head ofthe steps in  front of the post office. On a dark  night the last mentioned place is  positively dangerous.  At the public meeting,' held in  court room last Monday night, to  discuss the Japanese question, there  was a very large attendance. Every  creek was represented. A chairman and sccre'ary were elected and  the discussion was started. After  several speakers had expressed  their views, it was decided to form  a Miners' Association, for the protection of the miners and workers in  the district. Walter Cox was elected .president and Chas. T. Baker  secretary. A membership roll was  started. After that, committees were  appointed and ways and means discussed. It was decided to hold a  meeting in Discover}' Tuesday  night.  Tuesday night there was a very  large' and enthusiastic meeting in  Discovery. Mr. Ruffner was interviewed. Just exactly what has  been done.-hy the committee will be  known shortly. They are still  actively engaged in the work and  feel that it will be but a short time  till the Japs are 'hitting the trail'  with the north wind in their backs.  ' Nzw  Hydraulic  Company.  M. R. Jamieson yesterday received a cable from H. Malum stating  that: a company had been formed  and the money subscribed for the  working of Otter creek.  Mr. Maluin has been in Paris for  time past interesting capital in the  venture. It is very gratifying to  those immediately interested, and  to the people in the district generally, that his endeavors have been  successful.  The company will"-be known as  The Otter Hydraulic Gold Mines  Company, and will be under the  joint management of M. R. Jamieson and H. Maluin. Mr. Maluin  will not be in this season. He is in  Spain putting through a large deal  in connection with a tin mine. The  local management will be in charge  of Mr. Jamieson.  The property is a large one, running up Otter creek from Surprise  lake about five miles. Work will  be started immediately. A ditch is  to be run for a considerable length,  and a dam will be built. No doubt  a considerable number of men will  be employed.  Messrs Maluin and Jamieson are  to be congratulated.  Edwin Brown, secretary of the  Engineer Mining Co., of,Skagway,  was charged, ou information of Jas.  Alexander, with taking a false oath  in connection with the swearing of  the assessment work on the Hope  claim, one of the claims comprising  the Engineer Group. Afler hearing part of the evidence the case  was remanded eight days. Bail was  fixed at $500 J. A. Fraser, magistrate.  One of our citizens in the district,  who occasionally- wipes the dishes  for his wife became tired ofthe job  and refused, saying that "it was  not a man's work." Not feeling  disposed to lose his help she brought  the bible out to convince him of his  error and -read as follows, from II  Kings 21:13: "Aud will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish,  wiping it and turning it upside  down.'T It. is hardly necessary to  state that he still is doing his usual  stunt. Some of the other good  housewives arc seaiching the Scriptures trying to find something bearing ou getting up and lighting the  fire, splitting kindling, carrying in  wood and keeping the water barrel  filled.  :,  FOR   SALE���Reasonable   price.

Sheppard, Atlin.   >����������   It wasn't a Missouri editor but a  printer's devil who -was going  through his first experience on  "making-up" forms. Thepaper was  late and the boy got the galleys  mixed. The first part of the obituary notice of a, nee. t'iioii<- citizen had  been dumped iu the forms, and  the next handful of type came off a  galley describing a recent fire. It  read like this: -"The pallbearers  lowered the body into the grave and  as it was consigned to the flames  there were few if any regrets, for  the old wreck had been an eyesore  to the town for years.' Of course  there was individual loss, but that  was fully covered by insurance.'"  The widow thinks the editor wrote  the obituary notice thai way because the lamented partner of her  joys ard sorrows owed him some  back subscriptions.  A. Natural Query. -  Robinson had been down to the  club with a few of the boys, and  when he proceeded home his gait  was slightly unsteady. His tu".,]-  tank was a little bit befuddled. Ou  arriving.at his home he proceeded  with the utmost caution to let himself iu. 'ft was about 3 a. m., and  all was still. The keyhole .seemed  to be moving about in a most erratic maimer but finally he managed  it. After getting inside il appeared  to him as if the furniture had been  put in strange places. First he  collided with a hall chair and apologised. Next the table with a  flower-pot careened over; tin's time  there was no apology, instead it  was something in a hoarse whisper.  Tlist as he was about to make one  more heroic attempt to mount the  stairs his wife's voice was heard  in tones of enquiry: "George, is that  you?" George'.siBigliiened himself  up and answered, as dignified as he  possibly could under the^circumstances: "Cert'uly, m' dear, did  you expect anybody else?" ATLIN,    B.

GliANT,       Hl)l'IOH-.\lANAfli;il.  The  Question  of   Lhe   Flour.  The invasion ofthe Atlin district  by the Japanese under the auspices  of J. M. Ruffner, manager of the  Pine Creek Power Co., is tlie burning question of the hour.  That the greater majority of the  people do not want the 'little brown  men' is very evident. Adverse  comment and strong- expressions of  disapproval come from all sides.  The   Japanese   come   in  here to  work  for  a' lesser   wage   than   the  white   man,   and,   the chances are,  they will be paid   off at the expiration   of ' the   labor   contract  time.  They do not  spend their money in  the country the same  as the white.  They  do  not  live  the same as the  white.    And,   even .if they wished,  the would nol be allowed  to mingle  socially.    Would we care to see our  women married to Japanese;   would  .   the   women   themselves   fancy  the  alliance?     Well,   if the   white men  are diiven   out   by   the Japauese, it  will be a sad slate ot affairs.  Surely  they   are a  detriment  to   the community and an   alarming menace to  the   interests   of   the   white   race.  The   excuse   for the importation  of these objectionable people is, that  labor   was  scarce  and   even  those  who were here could not be depended upon to stay throughout the season.    Such   a  statement  sounds  a  wee  bit   out  o' tune.    Other companies operating in   the district had  not the slightest difficulty in getting  all   the   men   they required.    And,  what is more,   kept   them throughout   the  entire seascn.    Strange to  say these self-same men are back in  camp to seek employment with the  same  companies   they   worked   for  last year.    Providing tlie wages are  up   lo   the  camp standard  and the  manager treats his men justly there  will lie no scarcity of help.    A man  of -that stamp has the pick.      While  the   other   fellow,   well,   as   Paddy  says; "comparisons are odorous."  Considering the question broadly:  They should not be allowed to enter the Dominion of Canada. There  are millions ol Japanese crowded  into a very limited space in their  own land. Since the edict issued  by the Mikado that the Japanese  might not leave their native land  has  been  annulled,   thousands are  preparing to migrate. Tlie United  Slates has closed ils'doors. Canada  i.s the onI3" 'laud'of promise' open to  them in North America, and to  Canada they will assuredly come, if  there are no steps taken to prevent  them. , -    '     ^  The population of the Dominion  promises lo increase by almost a  million during the next year. -The  influx from the United Kingdom is  estimated at some 300,000. Added  to this there will be thousands fro.tn  European countries and the United  Stales. Such people arc of a class  wc most desite lo populate our fair  land with. They hi ing their small  savings, their wives and children,  aud, casting in their lot with us  help lo build up a sound, strong and  mighty empire.  Will any reasonable person-say  that the Japauese will do this? It  is hardly likely.  Out'of British Columbia every  year goes thousands of dollars, sent  home by the Asiatics. The object  is to get as much as possible out of  the country. It is a perpetual  'bleeding  process.  The state of California, for self-  protection, was forced to shut out  the Japanese. They were getting  control of the labor market. In one  of the most fertile valleys, we are  told, they were masters of the situation, and the whites had to  'knuckle under.' They would make j  an offer to recover the season's crop  aud if refused they would boycott  the owner. In more than one instance thousands of dollars worth of  fruit rotted ou the trees because  there was no one to pick it.  Let no one imagine for a moment that the Jap is a tame and  docile creature, to be herded here  and there with impunity, and to be  treated as a mere chattel. Such an  idea is absurd. The Japs are no  fools. On the contrary they are  bright and intelligent. They are  here for a purpose. They are intensely patriotic and united in a  common bond. A foothold or an  entrance is what they desire. To  obtain this they will work for low  wages and do most anything to get  a start. Once their goal is reached  they will be in a position to dictate,  aud it will be a sorry day for Canada and the Canadians when they  work under Japanese rule.

Mining In Cassiar.  There aie some ' 1:0 uuiri <_���.-> which  spring-at once into notoriety,-and  are successes from the finding* of  the first "float" like Cobalt, and  there are others' wliich have their  preliminary fliilleis, their subsequent.period of compai alive neglect  ami their ultimate ^revivals, or second births, like Caribr>o.  Cassiar belongs lo the same class  as Cariboo, which it resembles a  good ileal iu character and history.  Between them they make up the  northern half of British Columbia,  .and the gold we find in both is  found on ancient liver channels,  probably belonging to the pre-glac-  ial period.  Like Cariboo, Cassiar had its  early rush of . "cream skimmers,"  poor but energetic .individual miners, who fought their way into the  country in spite of all difliculties of  transportation, found gold, and  dealt with the richest aud most obvious deposits of it successfully, and  when they had exhausted .the very  richest spots which alone could pay  . under such conditions as they had  to contend with, abandoned the  ���country until the era of companies,  hydraulic mining, and Guggcii-  heimers should arrive.  In Cassiar iu 1873, Thibert and  McCullough and .others, . located  chums upon Dease creek, Thibert  creek and McDames, aud from these  the pioneers, and a few thousands  of similar character took, with the  rudest appliances, some $4,500,000  worth of gold dust; at least the'  government collected upon that  amount, though how much more  was won must be a matter of conjecture.  In those early days, men went by  steamer lo Wraogel Irom Victoria;  thence by canoe or over the ice up  the Stickine for 150 miles, thence  they had to pack over a forest trail  of 72 miles, boat across Dease lake  aud climb in from there to the various creeks upon which their claims  were located.  - Tne whole of a normal, season today is only 150 days', but luckily it  is not difficult to mine for the whole  24 hours of each'day, aud the difficulties of frozen ground, big boulders and cement are for the most part  absent.  Under such conditions it is not  wonderful that the first excitement  soon subsided, and by the early  eighties the country about the  Stickine settled down lo its primeval silence.  Then once again the cry was  "gold," this time in the Klondike,  and British Columbia had the  chance of its life, and missed it, because the senate of the clay was  afraid that Messrs. Mann & Mc-  Kenzie might make too good a  thing out of their grant of snow and  : ice in return for an all-Canadian  route, which would have given our  coast towns the trade which has  built Seattle.  About this time various smaller  'companies sprung into existence,  the Cassiar Central Railway Company, which proceeded Mann &  McKeuzie, and also ended in disaster; the Casca Trading & Transportation  Company,    which    went  out of business without a debt and  ivithout a nickel, setting a good example perhaps of business morality,  and affording au'example ofthe unwisdom of trying 10 rival the old  Hudson Bay Company���and some  others.  Kventually, when everybody had  lost all the money they had to lose,  some ol ihe members of these companies got hold of a piece- of property on lease on Thibert'crcck and  settled down to learn mining. The  adventures would furnish material  for a Ballantyue for life, and what  they don't know about the difficulties of ti anspoi latiou aud the charms  of opening a vast hydraulic property without working capital (assisted  fortunately by contributions from  the sluice boxes), i.s scarcely worth  consideration.  All that nature could do for us  except as to transportation, had  been done. No one need want a  belter dump, and in the other essentials of hydraulicing, we were fortunate, but we had our business to  learn, and every experiment -we  made showed that our deposit was  larger than we had ever dreamed,  and richer, in that, iu addition to  the coarse gold for which we were  mining, we had a good deal of fine  gold and a very considerable quantity of osmiridium,, of the value of  which we had at first no'knowledge. All this had been going into  the dump. Today the property  consists of ten leases of Sco acres  each in one continuous body, fronting Thibert creek'for  15,000 feet.  The net result of the operation to  date are: We have opened and  equipped our mine thoroughly up-  to-date, and in the intervals of opening and equipping, have managed  to do 150 days of actual washing  for gold, although a very great deal  even of' thai lime we have been  washing the least remunerative top  gravel, but iu those 150 days,  which is just one normal season, we  have taken out $63,000.  Had we prospected the pockets of  Ihe public and handsomely advertised our property wc might have done  better still, but as an example of  what may be taken out of the gravel  itself by hard work and such persistent energy as has been displayed,  for instance, by our managing director (who is also our head piper),  Mr. Warburtou Pike, this is perhaps not bad.  Besides the Berry Creek Company there are two other hydraulicing companies in Cassiar; but these  are still iu their initial stages, and  when the day comes for dealing with lode mines, i.e., when  Cassiar has some transportation  facilities, it will be found that the  pioneers of the country have their  stakes upon some rock which would  not be sneered al iu any mining  camp.  g|It will be observed that in this  article no allusion,has.been made to  the .Atlin country, which is, of  course, a portion of Cassiar. This  is a wilful omission.' Atlin is sufficiently well known to the public  and is rapidly making itself a good  reputation. It lias the start in the  race. It will do well il it leads or  is in sight ot the Stickine country  at the finish. Good luck lo them  both.-���Clive Phillips-Wooley, in  The Canadian Mining Journal.  in  <��!7m*  ���fi   Jp   Jf>   ci*   *��   -jP  txcastsstiEzv.

SATURDAY,    MAY   4,   1907.  Presentation.  Monday evening- last a committee  representing the Sunday school and  managers of St. Andrew's Prcsby-  lerian church waited on Mrs. C, R.  Bourne and presented her with an  address and a handsome brooch.  The brooch is made up of small  nuggets into the design and shape  of a maple leaf. The delicate tracery of the veinsof the leaf is worked  out with a most artistic effect, and  is but another evidence of the skilled workmanship oi Mr. Jules  Eggert.  Following is the address;��� '  "On the eve of your departure for  Victoria, the Board of Managers and  the Sunday School of St. Andrew's  Presbyterian Church, take this opportunity of wishing you Godspeed  and a safe return.  Some months ago, when we were  iu difficulties, no organist being  available for our church, you, at  considerable inconvenience, to yourself, volunteered to come to our  assistance, and we have found you  ever ready and willing at all times  to lielp us not only in our regular  services, but in the work of the  Sunday School aud by' assisting in  the various other church functions.  As a token of our regard and a  partial recompense for'your services  we would ask yon lo accept this  small gift, 'and we hope your visit  to the coast will be pleasant and  profitable.  Committee:  M. R. J. Reid,  R. B. Anderson.  The same evening Mrs. Bourne  was presented with a very beautiful locket, by her friends and admirers in the district as a mark of  their appreciation of her contributions of music at the concerts and  socials during the past season.  A farewell dance was given lo  Mrs. Bourne last Tuesday evening.  They was quite a number present  and all enjoyed themselves. Mrs.  Woods played some new and entrancing dance music.
