At the present moment the great  influx of Oriental Immigrants into  Canada is agitating the peoples of  the Empire and also of our Cousin  Republic. Every day one can read  articles in the press on this very  vexed question and still'very few  look at the fact fully and frornanon-  pa-tizan standpoint. The question  is not one that should be used as  political capital by any party, it is  too big and the outcome too  momentous to be relegated for settlement in party political wrang-  ings. The Exclusion League may  have the welfare of the County at  heart, but primarly they are striving  to make Party political capital out  of it, thus greatly curtailing their  strength and usefulness.  The only way the question can  be successfully dealt with, is for the  master minds, regardless of political  leanings, to meet together ' and  formulate a remedy that will be  beneficial and lasting. Until this  .is done, and the matter treated as a  national question, we will hope and  work in vain.  On July 16th. 1894, there wasa  Treaty of "Commerce and Navigation," between England and Japan  of which clause reads' as follows.  Subjects of each of the two  High  Contracting Parties shall  have full  liberty to enter, travel, or reside  in  any part of the Dominions and Possessions  of the  other    contracting  parly and shall enjoy full  and   perfect protection for their persons and  property.    In   whatever relates   to  rights of residence  and  travel;   to  the possession of goods  and  efects  of any kind   to   the   succession  of  personal estate, by will or otherwise  and the disposal of property of any  sort   in   any    manner    whatsoever  which they may  lawfully  acquire,  the  subjects  of  each    contracting  party shall enjoy in the  Dominions  and   possessions   of  the other  the I  same, privileges,  and  liberties  and  rights and shall   be  subject to  no  two years of the' ratification of  treaty.' Canada did not avail herself of the opportunity of becoming,  a pary to the treaty within the time  limited but iu 1S99 s*"ie had an informal understanding with Japan  that not more thau- five hundred  passports would be issued to subject of that country for entry into  the Dominion.  Some five years after the second  Anglo Japanese treaty, Canada,  seeing the advantages of the Oriental trade, made, overtures to Downing .Street lo be allowed to profit-.by  the then'new treaty. This was'not  possible by means of a mere notice,  and it became necessary to formulate  a new treaty, which was signed on  January 31st. 1906, and consisted  of practically one Articale.  "The"  Two   High    Contracting  Parties Agree that the stipulations  of the treaty of commerce and Navigation between Great Britian and  Japan signed at London on the i6th  of July 1904, shall be applied to lhe  intercourse, commerce and naviga*-  tion between the Empire of Japan  and the British Dominion of Canada."  Thus it was that Canada was  opened unrestrictedly to the Japanese. Ratification did not take place  until the July, following. In the  meantime the treaty was submitted  to the Parliament oi Canada, AND  WAS APPROVED. NOT A  SINGLE WORD OF PROTEST  WAS HEARD FROM THE SENATORS OR MEMBERS REPRESENTING BRITISH COLUMBIA. CONSERVATIVES AND  LIBRALS FROM ALL OVER  CANADA VOTING IN FAVOR  OF THE TREATY.  Canada  became  a  party  to the  treaty of her own volition, she  was  greedy  for    trade,     and    possibly  those in  high    places - wanted   an  abundant supply  of   cheap labor,  who knows?    At all events as a result of these negotition there was an  influx ot 10,300. orientals into Canada up to the end of October   1907.  These are the   facts.    As anation  having    entered      into    a  solemn  compact with another nation,   what  can we do?  It may   be  1  IN. C WHEBUNO  Ciroceries and Provteten&  Fresh Fruit and' Vegetables  .

A Grave mistake  has been made, the outcome lies in  the future.  A Few years ago the popular  feeling was against the Chinese,  with a result that a higher Poll-  Tax was levied on all celestials entering vvithin our Dominion. Since  then the number that have entered  has been so small that its not worth  mentioning. China had no treaty  allowing her subjects free entry,  and in all probabiity never will  have one. If the same policy had  been carried out with Japan, the  present turmoil and high feeling  wculti have been averted.  OPEN DAY AND NIGHT.

Having been tied tip for  years by hydraulic leases, a little  work was done in ie;o6 by the locators, but it wasnounttill 1907 that  the Creek got more than passing  attension. The boys located their  claims, and practically nothing more  ��� However this year there was  considerable work done on the  creek which is about 25 miles from  Atlin. Encouraged by the returns  obtained ou Discovery where Andy  Grier had a crew of 8 men, those  holding ground in the  vicinity  did  - considerable work, but as yet without any tangible results, still nothing discouraged, this work will be  continued the coming summer.  The valley itself is rather wide  and is about S miles long. . The  Creek itself has not very heavy  grade iu fact in some places there  are many twists ahd. turns to the  creek.  The gravel however is not so .far.  prospected very deep, after a claim  has been once opened up the cost  of mining will not be very heavy.  Ou Discovery claim the clean ups  varied from ��12. to $15. per day to  the shovel. Wilson Creek has only  been scratched,' there is room for  several hundred men and there are  no leases as yet.  This summer the Governemet  built a waggon road to the creek,  which will greatly reduce the cost  of supplies.  TO CONSUMPTIVES.

DIXIE    VALLEY.  ��� Several years ago this creek was  held under leases and some prospecting was done by O. B. Perry  and associates with a view of demonstrating its values as a dredging  valley. After some little work the  option was dropped and all the parties interested wished they had their  money back, with -~-ne exception  Mr. R. McKee. He held his leases  and started to  work  to prove  up.  Last year he did a lot of open cut  work, with fair returns.
