THE CHINESE QUESTION IN CANADA.
A meeting of citizens of Victoria,
' 1L C, was held on the -1 ill itisl. to
consider the Chinese question. A
scries of resolutions were passed
setting fortli that the responsibility
would rest on the Dominion govern
ment if rioting and bloodshed ensue,
and asking representatives of the
province in the House of Commons
at Ottawa to withdraw their support
from the government should it neg
lect to introduce and carry the bill
reported by the Chinese commission.
The feeling there is iutense against
the continued flooding of the pro
vince with pagans, and it is deemed
imperative that restrictive measures
should be passed at once, so as to
take effect July 1st.
The resolutions come to a climax
in the following bold and ominous
"That if in consequence the peo
ple should find themselves compelled
to take the law into their own hands
as a last resort, and abate, by forci
ble means, a public nuisance, as
they have an undoubted right to do,
then the Dominion Government and
the Judges of the Supreme Court
should, and must be, held answer
able for any riolings or even blood
shed which unf oi innately might
accompany a general uprising of the
white laboring classes in vindication
of their iust rights against their
national enemies, the Chinese."
Japan's terms to the Chinese Gov
ernment for the settlement of tbc
troubles arising out of the late
Corean cmbroglio arc: (1.) Corea
being an independent Stale, China
not to interfere with her affairs. (2.)
Chinese troops to leave Corea, and
China never to send troops there
again. (3.) On account of the
events' in Corea, by which a number
of Japanese lives were lost, through
the action of Chinese' troops, China
lo pay Japan an indemnity of
800,000 taels. (!.) Japanese sub
jects, journeying through Corea into
Kirin, to he at liberty to do so. (5.)

Telegraphic olllccs are to be es

Soul, in the Corea, is again open

police organization, Japanese resi

nnd Chincso to Suihiokio.
The Dutch authorities in Achccn
have already sent back to Java,
within the last three months, over
two thousand (including followers)
of the military and marine forces
hitherto stationed on tho coast of
Sumatra. Another thousand, it is
expected, will follow shortly j and
tho strength of tho permanent force
to be stationed at Oleleh and Pcdir
has been llxcd at five thousand five
hundred. All the other coast ports
hitherto blockaded have been desert
ed by the Dutch and the blockado
raised. This is the lcsult of a war
extending over nine years and which
has cost the Dutch nation millions
upon millions slciliug and thousands
upon thousands of valuable lives.
It is understood that the Indian
authorities investigated the military
resources of Persia with a view lo
coming events in Asia sonic months
ago. It was found that plenty of
good raw material for an army exis
ted, together with an organized
force of respectable size, but im
perfectly instructed, nnned and
equipped. It was estimated that in
Kliorassan, directly on the south
western border of Afghanistan and
south of the Russian line of the
Atlrek, together with certain no
madic tribes, could turn out nearly
100,000 irregular horsemen; be
sides these, the Shah's "regular"
army comprises 8.",000 more, prin
The Persian troops have been un
der different administrations in
structed by both English, Austrian
and Russian olliccrs. The present
organization is that introduced by
the English nearly half a century
since, with the exception of a few
regiments trained by Austrian olll-
cers two or three years ago. Major
J I. John j who visited them in 1877,
says the infantry are in reality of
the quality of militia. The men
serve for five years and arc then dis
missed for two years; they are
poorly dressed and equipped. The
arms include the Wcrndl, Pcrdan
and AVinchcster rifles ; the majority,
however, nre 'Wcrndl breech-loaders,
procured from the Austrian Govern
ment. Some 7,000 men are trained
as artillery, with guns of old pattern,
cxccptiiig a few Uchatius batteries.
Excellent gunpowder is manufac
tured at Teheran, but the troops
use metallic cartridges of Austrian
make. There is but little regular
cavalry, but its place is supplied by
the Ilyat horsemen, splendid riders,
and only requiring European leaders
to make them excellent light dra
goons. Altogether, the Persian
army, unfitted to cope with Euro
peans "in the open," would be
troublesome to dislodge in their
native mountains. The Persian
soldier possesses a fine physique,
marvellous marching powers, per
fect temperance, and ability to
endure extremes of temperature.
O'Donovan, in his " The Mcrv
Oasis," thus describes the appcar
ahec of a Persian fort which he
visited in 1880: "It is about 150
yards square. At each corner is a
brick bastion. The curtain walls arc
of unbaked brick, and in a very
ruinous condition. On each bastion
is mounted an. oldfashioncd bronze
twelve-pounder, beside which stands
a wild artilleryman, in a tattered
blue calico tunic, faced with red
cotton braid, and wearing a huge
shaggy hat of "brown sheppskin. A
colonel commands the post. lie
had under his orders 500 or GOO
nondescript soldiers'; some of whom
carried old smooth-boro muskets. A
select company was armed with
enormously long rilles of Persian
manufacture, having attached a fork
support as a rest, like the mediaival
arquebuses." With reference to
some cavalry which has been under
Russian instructors, it is rcporled
equal in appearance to tho best
Cossack cavalry. Under native
olliccrs the. Persian troops are in
efficient and unmilitary; under
European leaders they will compare
with some of the best troops in the
world. O'Donovan " saw them on
one occasion when his Majesty the
Shah was paying a visit of ceremony.
The new Austrian drilled infantry
were standing at case but keeping
their ranks, and in front of them the
traditional soldiers of Persia in their
slovenly garments, their attitudes
'at case' being more than any mili
tary code would have permitted. I
saw the 'old fogy' olliccrs sitting on
their haunches smoking their water
pipes and little troubling themselves
whether it was the Shah or anybody
else who was coining by. And a little
further on Demoutovieh's Cossacks
on foot, drawn up 'at ease' more
accurately aligned than ever the 'old
fogies' could have put themselves at
'attention. ' I subsequently visited
their quarters. The men were in
their white Summer tunics, scrupul
ously clean. In the stables the
horses were glossy with frequent
grooming, and tho place was care
fully swept up. Subsequently one of
the European instructors said : 'You
see what they arc now. When wo
arc gone in six months all will be the
same as if we had never been here.' "
It is estimated in India that Persia
could furnish 200,000 men, provid
ing the details of mobilization, or
ganization, instruction and command
were placed in the hands of an Euro
For tho reasous already mentioned,
because Skobelcff was permitted to
march troops across Persian territory
against the Tekkcs in 1878, and that
three roads exist through Khorasson,
from tho Caspian Sea to the Ileri
Rud, we hazard tho propheoy that
such an ally will be Russia. JVc-io
