Dr. Young, will accept  the honor,thus conferred upon him  and will endeavor lo be present upon the occasion named for the conferring of the degree,, namely September 26th, al the inauguration of  President Ealconer. , ,  This morning the Hon. Dr. H. E.  Young, received a message from  the Toronto University acquainting  him with ihe fact thai he was to receive the degree. It was as follows:  "Hon. H. E. Young,���The University of Toronto desires to confer up��  on you the honorary degree ol L- L.  D., at the inauguration of President  Falconer, on September 26th.

Frascs,  gold commissioner,   Erring upon him.    Toronto's hou-  has recently returned from a visit to  the. Porcupine country.    He reports  very favorably   on   the  outlook   of  . thing's  iu  general  in   that section.  The miners have  been   prospecting  there, some of them,   for nearly  ten  years, and have been   badly   handicapped by not   having a good   road  into the   mines.      For a distance of  about   fifty   miles it took forty odd  days   to  pack   in  a  season's grubstake.    Fighting against such fearful obstacles as this and staying with  the work as they have   deserves only the highest praise.      These   men  must have  an   abiding faith in   the  country,   aud   surely   they   deserve  all the  assistance  the  government  can give them.      A. road is now under construction into the mines from  Pleasant  Camp,   on the  boundary,  which will connect with the American  wagon  road  now   under way.  This will be money well spent, and,  as it applies  there so it docs t6 the  district at large.  The prospector is the first man in  Ihe field and he must be helped else  the country never amounts to anything, and the best, surest and  quickest way is to build trails and  roads, this is Ihe first and most  essential move, and we are very  p'eased to see that the government,  through our member aud the gold  commissioner, recognize this fact,  and act accordingly.  orary degrees are not idly bestowed.  In the case of Dr. Young, the degree of L- L. D. will be most worthily bestowed. By- the exercise of  his conspicuous talent and energy  the Minister of Education has rapidly reached one of the most prominent positions in ihe gift of the people of the province. He possesses  the confidence in a most unusual  degree of his political opponents,  who recognize in him an administrator whose dominating desire is to  conduct his important department  iu such a manner as he believes to  be for the advantage of the province."  Certain Vancouverites, who seem  to have no work to do, are talking  of going with guns to drive back  the next batch of Japanese immigrants, who, under the treaty ot  commerce and friendship specially  entered into, come lo this country  to reside. This sort of talk is mischievous iu the extreme. It might  be well if the wise neighbors of  those who indulge in it persuade  them from a course that only fools  could think of.���Hamilton Spectator.

With regard to tlie present ruili-  Asiatic agitation a noticeable fact in  the speeches and writings of sonic  of the foremost men iu the movement is an attempt lo place the  blame of the influx upon the provincial 'government. In many cases  this is done' through ignorance ���  gross and inexcusable'ignorance al  that. In other cases, the speakeis  and writers are known to get their  inspitation from Ottawa,, where the  successful and prosperous administration of provincial affairs by Mr.  McBride and his colleagues of the  British Columbia goveninjenl is regarded with great and growing dissatisfaction and apprehension.  The plain facts of the case are  that for many years the passage ot  what is called Anti-Mongolian legislation has been almost as regular  a feature of each session of the Brit-  . ��� ish Columbia" legislature as the  opening and closing ceremonies of  the House. And in every case such  legislation has either been promptly  disallowed at Ottawa, or the-Lieut.'-  Governor, acting under instructions  from Ottawa, has refused his consent to the bill.   .  No   amount  of. cheap talk from  orators who are making a living out  of the  easy  and  foolish public by  "championing  the  cause  of white  labor"   can   alter   these   facts,   and  this paragraph   is   written in  order  that the people of British Columbia  may not have the   wool   once  more  pulled  over  their  eyes   by   the increasing number of gentlemen who  skillfully avoid the necessity of soiling their   hands   with   honest work  by howling  for  the  rights of labor  and getting paid for doing so.    The  provincial government  is as strongly in favor of white labor as any organization of labor in the country���  much more so than   the Trades aud  Labor Council, if that latler body is  to be judged by its actions in regard  to   the   proposed   Salvation   Army  immigration scheme.     But the provincial government cannot over-ride  the federal government.    And what  the federal  government  iays  goes.  Everybody   knows   that...   All   the  provincial government can do is to  foster the immigration of white labor, to encourage   in   every way the  influx of our own race  into  British  Columbia.    This it has done, and is  still doing���-and   finds itself blocked  at every turn by the very men   who  are now yelling because a few Sikhs  and  Japanese  are. coming in to fill  up   the   waste   places   which  they  have refused to allow our own flesh  and   blood  to   enter.���Editorial  in  the B. C. Mining Exchange.  This   world   is   enriched  by   the  good more than by the clever.  "Liquor is the curse of' Alaska,"'  said Ardeacon Stuck, of the Alaska  Episcopal Missions, iu an interview  at Seattle. "The Indian population  is being debauched, aud not one of  ihe officials 'will move a finger to  stop the outrage. Tlie law is there  aud provides penalties lor all crimes,  but with the tetter you must have  .the spiiit as well, and thai is lacking in ihe Northland:"    :':    ''���'    *  No'doubt the good man is very  sincere in what he says, but, iu the  the!sauie breath lie might have included the world at large. , Alaska  has no particular cinch on the  'liquor curse.' He goes on to say,  "the Indians arec being debauched,  aud not one of theofficials will move  a finger to slop the outrage." The  latler part of the statement we do  not believe. To say there is not  one. conscientious official in ��� the  whole of Alaska,is rather a broad  and sweeping statement, even for a  bishop. It is anything but flattering to the administration.  Is the reverend gentleman posted  on the pros and cons of 'the Indian  and the.whisky?! Far back in the  early-history of this country, when  the Indians out 11 umbered the whites  by hundreds to one, a wise regulation was made restricting the red  man from having liquor. The  reason is so evident to enlarge were  a waste of words. Even at that, in  spite of the law, he got 'hootch,'  such as it was, aud celebrated in the  orthodox manner. Times have  changed. The white man outnumbers the Indian, yet the regulation  remains the same, and, as before,  the Indian gets his 'firewater,' only  he gets more of it and gets it easier.  There are more white men to supply  him.-  Why not treat the Indian as any  other resident? Any man coming  into Canada, be he a Chinaman, a  Jap, a Hindu, or some dirty, low-  down, vicious specimen of the brow  beaten and down-troddeu races of  Europe, may buy whisky. But the  poor Indian, the Canadian pure and  simple, oh, no, he must not (by  law) have it. Does it not seem a  farce? Give the Indian a chance to  buy a decent brand of Scotch, Irish  or Canadian rye, instead of having  to pay three prices for 'rot-gut,'  made out of tobacco juice, alcohol;  red ink and pain-killer thrown in to  tone it up.    Is there any wonder he  goes  off his   bead  when he gets a  few 'jolts',of it?    It would drive the  white man clean crazy in no time.  Don't think for a moment we  want to make all the Indians drunk-  arks. Far from it. We can?t say  we are particularly 'stuck ou 'em,  yet we think they are just as much  en tilled to their liquor as anyone  else. And we have seen Indians  right iu town carrying what seemed  to be 'a pretty fair one,' better than  many white men.
