raised by the Canadians over the bound
.rv line has left the territory between
the two lines claimed as
neutral ground, and been so accepted
by our government. Though it is safe to
assume that if the United tates > had seen
fit to send an armed force to Log Cabb, ?i
the generally recognized American bound
ary line, erected a mast and raised the
Stars and Stripei over it. Canada wo
have raised a howl that would have been
heard from one end ofthe land to t^e
other- The cry of disputed
territory would have been raised, and just
ly so; the agitation would never have
ceased until the United States had with
drawn its forces and awaited the amuable
Kttlemen'. of the question bv the two gov
ernments. Britishers have now taken a
step that will force the question to an
Issue. The United States cannot ignore
the high handed proceeding of arresting
two of its officers while in the discharge
of their duty on disputed territory and
subjecting them to the indignity ot being
placed in the position of prisoners and de
prived of th* ir libertv tor twenty-four
hours. There is a limit to even Yankee
endurance. The United States is a long
suffering nation and her people are accus
tomed to putting up with many indigni
ties before resenting them. Uur
British Columbia friends are presuming
upon the forbearance of the nation. The
discovery of gold in their territory and the
sudden rise from poverty to affluence is
proving too much for their over strained
intellects. The recent passage of the of
fensive exclusion ret ? worthv of the
teudal days? is now followed bv these
arbitrary self appointed dictators of a
boundary line, and the results in both
cases cannot help but create international
complications the ends of which no one
can now forsee. British Columbia in her
present arrogant self imposed assumption
of power Is fast assuming the position of
an over indulged, bad tempered child
whose only salvation lies in the adminis- (
iration of a first-class spanking. The rod |
is in pickle.
The irrepressible Yankee is not easily
put down bv such a little thing as the ex
clusion act which deprives him of a lo
cation in the Atlin district. His irrepres
sible energy pushes him a ong to new
fields and before the Britisher had fully re
covered from the exertion of raising a
Chinese wall around his donuin his ag
gressive American brother has delved in
the gtound here and there and lo and be
hold a ne* discovery of gold was made and
added to the long list of discoveries made
bv Americans. This ew discovery is on
McDonald creek. north of the Atlin dis
trict and in the Northwest territory across
the line from British Columbia. The dis
covery Is the result of the exclusion act
and a number of progressive American
prospectors not wishi g to waste anv
more time in the Atlin district wheie they
were not wanted, crossed over into the
more friendly Northwest territory and soon
made a find that promises to equal the
Atlin countrv in point of richness and the
extent of which will give claims to more
than fifty thousjnd miners. The condi
tions in this new district are also more
favorable to the Americans for besides be
ing able to locate, record and work as Am
ericans the sizes of the claims themselves
are larger than those in the Atlin district.
So it would appear that some good is yet
to come out of the exc4us!on act.
