After  much discussion It was unanimously car-  Tied:.

The weather  was exceedingly warm  and had its effect on the Jolly Picnickers  in more ways  than  one.  One was  that  there was not as large a number In attendance as last year. Another was that  the  ''beeroglaphers"  were kept busy, at  their post,  making lemonade and  other  cooling decoctions  for     their     grateful  gucsts^jne grand stand was well filled  and  the contestants in tlie gamesWere  well anulauded.

ELECTIONS.  Elsewhere appear the latest corrected  returns   of   the    Provincial    elections  which   took   place   on   Saturday   last,  and   resulted  in   the  signal  defeat  of-  the   Government,    lt   is' perhaps   the  first  time  in  the history of Canadian  politics   that   two   Ministers    of     the  Crown, in the persons of Hon. .1. sitfilrt  Yates   and   Hon.   George   Washington  Heebe,   lost   their   deposits   while   the  rank and file of the party hut number  seven in a house of *iS members, counting Cassiar,  from which returns have  not yet been received, for the Oppc��i-  tinn, there being no supporters of the  Hon.   the   Premier  m   the   field   there.  ���It  is  understood   that  the  latter -will  resign oflice���Indeed there is no other  course open  to him���and  the question  arises who will be called upon to form  o an Administration.    The leaders have  ���fallen by tlle wayside with the possible  .   exception  of  the  Hon. J.   H.  Turner,  and rumor is rife  with  many  mimes,  the list including those of -Mayor Gar.  den,   Mr. ' D.   it.  Eberts  and   Mr.   II.  ���D., Helmcken   with   the   natural   conviction on the part of his many friends  lhat our Chief Magistrate would by his  "large abilities nnd suave mann-rs ee-  -..   ment   the  various   factions  anil,   surrounded   by  a   galaxy   uf   talent,   give  '.the   country   that   strong   and   stately  -.constitutional,.-government   for   ivhic'i  it   has   been   long   begging.     Aimtlior  rumor  is   that   Hon.  Mr.   .Martin   and  Hon. Mr. Turner will form a  Ministry.  However that may be it is clear 'that a  coalition must be formed if ihe present  chaotic   condition    of    things    Is    tu  cease. :.There is another, matter which  must  be  taken  Into  grave consi'b'ra-  ���tion,  and  that   is   the   probable  netiioi  ','ot'jhe  Lieutenant-Governor,'   in   view  of the statements made by the.  Prime  (Minister in the House of Commons and  ~the-Minister of Justice In  the  Senate.  ]   These were to the effect that  if Premier Martin was not sustained, the position of the Hon.  T. ;R. -.Mcinnes  became seriously imperilled.   His Honor  took-a heavy responsibility  upon  his  ���shoulders  and  must stand   the consequences.    A  few days  now will  clear  ���the air, but It is earnestly to be hoped,  in  the  best  interests  of  the  Province  .���which have  already  suffered   through  the   turmoil  of  politics,'   that   another  general   election   will   ue   avoided   for  a.  time  at least.    This  no doubt  will  ���be determined by the Opposition convention, called to meet in this city on  "Monday.  We regret extremely thatthe Labor  candidates in this constituency faileii  to win, though both Mr. Dixon and  "Mr. Williams put up a good light and  developed considerable strength that  will fell.In future conflicts. A powerful effort should be niade to increase  the membership of the Unions and to  make them-a-unit in behalf of Ihe  -standard-bearers of the Party. Both  gentlemen conducted-a manly, clean  and straightforward campaign, and  'dignified the Labor, cause, by i.heir appearance, on the platform, the manner  ��� in which they met the. electorate'generally. They won golden opinions for  themselves and on another occasion,  ���we trust, will be more successful. The  triumphs of President Ralph Smith  ,.^Jwas_one.._o.f, the_features._of_the^c_,im-.  paign, a Minister losing his deposit  and biting the dust in a seat to which  he  never  should  have  aspired.  The result, here, owing to the multiplicity of candidates, was doubtful  and may be said to have been unexpected. It was generally conceded  that the Mayor would be among the  ���winners and -thon certainly ended.  The large vote polled by-Premier .Martin was a surprise, as was the defeat  ot Mr. Cotton, while Captain Tallow  more than surprised his friends by tin*  plucky battle-royal he put up. The  closeness of the struggle between 'Aid.  Gllmour and Mr. Charles Wilson created large interest in the outcomel the  more especially as the latter was the  Conservative leader and it was very  desirable from their point or view that  he should have a place on the ticket.  However, the fates .were against him.  and he took his defeat by a small vote  philosophically. '  It is pleasant to look back over the  fight and to note that the best.of good  feeling prevailed on all sides: there  -was no rowdiness of any kind and  victors and vanquished were able to  shake hands over the bloodless chasm  and to take up their work again as  though nothing serious had happened. In the complex state of affairs  .Tvhieh now exists it is 'the duty of  every patriotic citizen to assist those,  ���whoever they may be,, who may be  placed  in  high  authority  to: the   end  that the public business may be carried on in n statesmanlike way, and  that such legislation may be placed  upon the statute books as will ensure  to the good of every man, woman and  child within our wide borders. As  to the promised measures we will have  sunn-thing to say when the proper time  comes.  IT IS NOT LOST.  Some voters are heard tn say'it they  have failed to secure the return of their  candidates. "Well, that's a vote lost,"  heedless of Ihe fact tnat a vote for  principle is never lost. The man, It  is true, loses, but "the cause which he  espouses remains and, if founded upon  the eternal principles or truth and justice must eventually win. Take the  recent fight In this city for labor representation as a striking instance of  this great truth, while lis champions  fell, the cause Is as holy and sacred  as ever, Its numerical strength was not  by any means unsatisfactory. One'  learns much by failure; it shows him  where his weak points He and how, to  overcome them. The campaign that  we have just gone through has taught  many lessons and in a future election  these ivlll be availed of and better results obtained. A vote fur principle is  not lost, but what shall we say of those  who always try to get on the winning  side, who throw their manhood to the  winds, and for the sake of paltry gain  grovel at the feet of those who for the  time being seem to be, or are, the  most powerful and inlluentlal? They  are cancers upon the body politic, and  in every community live their brief day  and, after being despised, are forgotten. The man of principle, however,  though he may lose, can afford to hold  his head up high and to walk with a  ilrm step for he commands the respect  and confidence of his fellow-creatures,  whether thoyj agree with his views  or r.ot.  A SERIOUS CHARGE. .  In trying to account for the defeat  ot the Government, our contemporary,  the World, in the following manner  libels the whole electorate of the Province:  "The whole Province, as an���eastern  contemporary states it, was literally  manured with money to accomplish  the overthrow of his Government.  Some assert the amount expended, in  corrupting the electorate of this Province in the contest by the Opposition  Party was simply fabulous. In several  constituencies the election of candidates was obtained by the gro.-sest  misrepresentations and arguments of  a monetary nature."  There Is no evidence that, "'fabulous"  sums of money were spent In the election; :lf they had been the facts would  soon leak out. A matter of that kind  cannot be long concealed. However,  let that go. What ive do protest  against, and that streiitiusly. is the allegation that thi; electors nf this Province can be bought up like sheep in  the shamble's, that they vare open So  a bribe and that "arguments of a  monetary nature" have weight In the  purchase of their votes. Such a sweeping condemnation of as intelligent and  honorable a people as can be found  anywhere is unworthy of any . paper  making the lofty claims in respectability and decency that the World  does and the insult must be'thrown  back in its face. It wns just such  unthinking language as Ihe above, that  smells of the sewer, which prevented  our contemporary from wielding that  power which it should have done ln  favor of the party of its sudden choice.  If it knows its unsupported statements���in the endeavor to let' Itself  down easy���to be true, why not give  instances rather than'brand a whole  population as unworthy to exercise the  suffrage, for anybody -gtinly of wiling that God-given right for a mess  of pottage should be made to hard  with lower animals, upon whom an  all-wise Providence has not seen lit to  confer that dignify.  ensuring a splendid success. These  have gone to work with a will, and  from now on will devote their best  energies to making the anniversary of  Confederation in the year 1900 memorable in the history of this magic oily.  The programme runs over two days,  and is as varied as It" is excellent:  there is something in it for everybody to enjoy. We trust that the committee on subscriptions will be met In  a generous manner, a characteristic  peculiar to the people of the Terminal  City, and that each will give, when  called upon, according to his means,  which is all that is asked. The various issues of The Independent, until  the gala time is over, will contain Ihe  latest Information concerning the work  of the committees, nnd whatever new  features may be devised in connection  with  the event.  To our friends outside tho clly we  may say that a capable reception committee has been formed, and that  everything possible will be done to  make our visitors' stay enjoyable. The  railroad and steamship companies are  offering special rates, and the accommodation so far as hotels, restaurants  and rooms Is concerned, will meet all  the demands put upon it.  To many of us of the native-born  Dominion Day has the tenderest and  deepest significance, because it meant  the birth of a nation which is cutting  quite a large swathe in the great world.  Just'now. The name of Canada is upon  everybody's lips, though it is indeed  just entering upon the fulness of a  magnificent existence. Our sons have'  shown the, stuff they are made of on  the far-off African veldt, they have  fought and died for Queen and country  and have upheld the Imperial instinct  in such a manner as toearn for them  the praise of the greatest Generals of  our time and the thanks of Her Gracious Majesty, whose royal heart has  warmed to us as It never did before.  Let us then, laboring together side by  side, make the coming Dominion Day  the most resplendent in the proud annals of the Liverpool of the West.  THEIR   INFLUENCE.  Our contemporary, the News-Advertiser, in Its leading article the: day  after the elections, among other things  said:   ���  "It may be pointed out also that It  was only the Tact that thei'e were Independent Labor candidates in the  field that prevented the Government  from carrying all the four scats in  Vancouver, it being generally conceded that the former's' support was  drawn almost entirely from that section ot" the electorate which would  ^oth(:r-wl.se^h.i-v.e^been-f<iun(hon^t-he=slde'  of the Government."  As to tlie accuracy of the foregoing  statement it does not matter, but our  |abor friends will observe that so "excellent an authority as Mr. Carter-  Cotton pays them this high compll-  ment. if It had not been for the entrance of the Labor candidates into the  Held, it says. the. Government .would  have carried all four seats. Those who  affect to despise the strength of Unionism and unorganized labor are requested fo paste the above clipping  in their Inns for beuettdal use on some  future  occasion.  THE ICE BROKEN.  It must be remembered that political  organization is a different thing from  Union organization for trade purposes.  Politics in  the general  acceptation  of  the term are as a matter of fact little  discussed in the Unions, the work the  latter have set out to perform being  of a  distinctive  character along  the  lines of mutual aid and. common defence.    This  fact  should   nots be  forgotten.   The Unions arrogate to themselves no right: to dictate to the large  body of organized labor;     they wish,  however,  to secure co-operation when  a juncture arrives and it becomes necessary for labor, organized and unorganized," to make a united fight, standing shoulder to shoulder for the right.  The  election   of  Saturday   last   broke  the ice and wc now know the position  we occupy.    It  is  one of  which  there  Is   no   reason   to   be  ashamed.    Never  before In  the history of this city bad  the  at tempt been  made   to  show  our  strength and,  for a  beginning, It was  creditable In  the extreme.   This even  the old parties 'acknowledge.'' Preparations must now be made for a thorough  organization    on  'Independent 'party  lines,   and. .this   can   be   done   by   the  calling of a Provincial convention, say-  on or about Labor Day, when enthusiasm will be keen and a fair representation of workers from all parts of British Columbia assured. "We trust, that  nctlon   in. this   respect   will  be   taken  at  once,  that  Is let  the  preliminaries  be arranged, for there is nothing like  taking time by the forelock in a matter of this kind.    Every name should  be registered forthwith; nobody eligible must on any consideration be missed.   This will be among the first work  tO;be done.    AVith another Provincial  election  possible  in  the Autumn   and  the Federal election in sight there is  ample opportunity for Labor to undertake the responsibilities that rest upon  It and to develop Its resources., AVith  hard, earnest and faithful work victory  should be achieved. --Let us, then; begin   how  and   keep   up   a  systematic  campaign   until   the   end   crowns   the  work. o  CHEAP RATES (FOR JAPS.  It appears from correspondence in  Leslie's Weekly that the horde of Japanese coolies now being landed on the  Pacific coast are cheap In more ways  than one. It costs them almost nothing to emigrate, and they can well  afford to work for wages that would  not support a white man. The most  extensive single operator In Japanese  Immigration Is the Japanese-American steamship line, Nippon Yusen Kal-  sha, -whoso vessels come tivo or three  limes a month, each laden with from  1.000 In 1.61)0 coolies ln the steerage.  These passengers are brought from  Kobe or Yokohama for US.yen, or'$17.50  in American money. This Includes  their accomodations on board and food  for the jouney of 20 days. Other transpacific lines and steamers offer lower  rates, the lowest being that given recently by the Mllos, a Germna tramp  steamer. It brought over about 1,00(1  al the seemingly impossible fare of  $0.50 each. This load, however, was  shipped not as passengers, but as  freight, the vessel having no license  to carry passengers, and the men providing their own food. When the Mllos  arrived in Victoria she was found to be  In a very filthy condition, and a heavy  penalty was assessed against the vessel. One way to check the undesirable  Immigration would be to make It unlawful for human beings to be shipped  as freight or ballast, and to allow no  discrimination in rates for a passenger,  be  he  while or brown.

Notwithstanding the excitement of the  election coming olT on the llth, there  was a larger attendance than usual,  which0showed that tho clerks are taking an active interest In the welfare  of the association. Six applications  for membership were elected to be received at the next regular meet ing.  it was unanimously resolved lhat a-  canvass of the city be made and that  all lady clerks be invited to join the  association. The union in this regard  is more than meeting its expectations  in the number of applications lieln'g  made for.imemborship. It is expected  by the latter part of 1900 the membership win 'bo doubled.  Sick People,  Purticiiliirly tlmj laborhiK innn, want Uio  VKUY UKST liiediciiK! it is' im'-'-ibh: tit  procure. Why'.'

What with jubilations over the relief of Ladysmith unci Alafeklng and  Pretoria, to sny nothing u'r the election excitement, the Klrst of July celebration���our local notable feature of  the year���seemed to have been relegated to a back place, we say seemed, because It was only seeming. Just as  soon as fhe smoke of the political battle cleared away, Immediate action was  taken and at the call of His Worship  the Mayor a large number of citizens  met in tlle City hall on Tuesday evening and appointed committees.' the personnel  of  which   appears    elsewhere,  One ofthe big surprises of the campaign was the stiff fight put up by  the socialist candidate, "Will .'Mac.  Clain. One old party man was heard  to exclaim, "who would of thought  that there were so many socialists ln  this city?" We believe that there are  JusUas^uiany^who^dld-no'L^vnte-at.nll.  Socialism Is now a living factor in our  daily affairs. Unconsciously our public  men are advocating It, a little fit a  time, contenting themselves by saying  they believe "it Is time for a  change," nnd that they believe In the.  progress and rights ot the people.

Editor Independent:   One would imagine at this stage of the game-after  years of struggling and tons of literature had been used to apt-end knowledge among workingmen; after persecutions,   and   imprisonments,   of   long  suffering;   after   hours   ot   thouRhtful  rellectlon on  their behalf;  after labor  papers sending warnings and thundering red-hot shots at them; after hours  upon hours of hard ��ttidy upon political economy in the unions!���I say at  this stage of tlie game, when capital  is at the throat of labor In every land,  trying  to  crush  the  life  out  of  the  masses of humanity, when millions or  workingmen  are walking  the  streets  and T>ye--ways, looking for work which  they cannot get, through the introduction of machinery which has taken the  place of the workingman;   the  introduction in our land of the great trusts,  and monopolies, and combines; of the  coming to this province of thousands  of Japs and Chinamen, who will ultimately drive the present workers from  this   part  of   the  Dominion   to   make  room for cheap Asiatic labor.    I sav  one would think at this stage    of the  same,  workingmen   would   pause  and  think for themselves, instead of allowing Mayor Garden  or Jos.  Martin  to"'  think for them or any one else, or even  be led away by  reports such  as  has  been spread throughout the past campaign.    Workingmen.  for the sake of  your wives and  families,  throw away  tho suspicion which kills honest purpose.   What have you gained by supporting the old  parties?    What  have  you ever  gained?     The    only  thing  which can be shown Is that the rich  are growing richer and you are growing  poorer.    What  are  you   doing to  alter this state of things?   If you think  that  by  becoming  a  voting  machine  for some political demagogue Is going  to alter lt you will be sadly left.   Your  fellow-worklngmen have been working  for your best interest, and you voting  machines,    Dago-llko,    have    stabbed  them; and now you cannot look honest  men In the face.   I noticed on Saturday night after the count and on Sunday the   way   these   men,    who   an;  known  (don't  forget It),  slunk away  from   their   honest,    upright    fellow-  workingmen,   and   how   ashamed   Unil  sheepish they appeared.   Their actions  alone  told  a tale    of   bclraval    and  cowardice.    If  you   are  not  ashamed  of your work; If you nro not ashamed  to see your victim,  your own  fellow-  workman   and   toiler   bleeding   In   the  (lust by your treachery, you ought to  be;  you should  be repenting in sackcloth and ashes;  but what Is the use  If you don't think for yourself?   You  "vlll  only go and  do  the same  thing  again.   Learn wisdom from vour lask-  mastore-they  vote solidly  "for    their  own class into Parliament.   Why?   To  protect their Interests    You .don't find  them   quarrelling   over    one    another  either; they g�� and support their man,  if lie is capable or not. Why do rou not  do  likewise,  and  send   men  of  your  class   to  represent   yourselves   in   the  legislative chamber of this Province?  Do not be led away by every wind lhat  blows.    Don't believe  what Is said  to  the detriment of your fellow-workers,  until  you  have proof that  things  aro  not right.    Do not be satisfied  until  you have sifted the thing to the bottom. What have you gained by putting  two of eacli  party  in  power?    What  Is tho result?   Vancouver Is not represented  at   all.      The   two   votes���one  side kills the two voles of the other.  So you have the supreme satisfaction-  it  there  is any In  it���of placing1  the  Terminal  City,   the   first  city   In   the  Province, in the position of being unrepresented   in  parliament.    So  much  for your  treachery  to the  two  labor  candidates who would have been neutral and  have given   their support  to  either   party   bringing   in   measures  for the benefit of the city and workingmen in particular.  the exclusive  ..   gencv of the . .  .       .   ���   .

The Japs paid no attention to the warning given and attempted to pass up tho  gangway, when one of them was knocked back on the boat. When the second*  came up he met with the same fate.  Finally the steamer with Its cargo of*  foreign laborers proceeded on Its way to  Seattle.
