The campaign against the admission
of Japanese to Canada is on in earnest.
The trades councils of the various
cities are being aroused by the Van
couver workmen who were stirred by
the Kumeric shipment. The following
dispatches from late Canadian flics
tell the story:
Vancouver, B. .C, Aug. 14. After
the most thorough examination that
the Japanese and their yellow cousins
have yet received since the agitation
against them, they were unanimously
rejected as "Underslrables" at Labor
hall Monday night, their friendly op
ponents forming an Asiatic Exclusion
league, the first in Canada.
From every point of view the Japa
nese particularly were considered, and
from every point of view were found
wanting In the qualities required in a
white man's country, Just because they
are Japanese and the yellow can never
In Rapid Transit Co.
The Lockwood controversy has
brought on a small war . In Rapid
ri'.ansit circles. Lockwood is the ex
conductor of the Rapid Transit Com
pany, who was convicted of assault
on a Japanese a few days ago. Pre
vious to the conviction he had been
discharged from the employ of the
street railway , company. Manager
Ballentyne, of the Rapid Transit, has
been very persistent In the prosecu
tion of Lockwood, and even after a
conviction was obtained against the
conductor, it is said, kept matters so
warm for the man that a feeling of
resentment was aroused among the
other employes of the company.

all were agreed. The only difference
of opinion was In regard to the method
of keeping him out.
The discussion upon this lasted un
til 11:30 o'clock, when the majority
agreed that the remedy Is solely with
I the Government at Ottawa. The
I longest arid strongest resolution thus
far framed upon the subject was half
j an hour later sent to Sir Wilfrid Lan
kier by the chairman, John P. Mc
Donnell, editor of the Saturday Sun
I set. , A copy will also be Bent to Pre
, mier McBride. A second resolution
was also passed to similar effect, but
with a clause that the British Colum-
Ma legislature continue to re-enact
Hon. Mr. Bowser's Natal act.
I But as pointed out the mere enact
ment or re-enactment of that measure
is ineffective unless Ottawa author
izes Its assent, the Lieutenant Gover
Manager Ballentyne, hearing of
tills subscription move, attempted to
nip the bud before It bloomed, and
investigating the matter, discharged
the man whom he thought was the
prime mover In the affair. In mak
ing this move, he also made a mis
take in his man, which increased the
feeling already rankling In the
breasts of the men.
It is reported that the instigator
of the subscription moveNvoluntaiily
visited Mr. Ballentyne's office yester
day afternoon, and in very few words
read the manager the "riot act," and
is reported to have threatened to call

There was no time left for the elec

which was deferred for a meeting to
be held at the call of the chair, but
a committee was appointed to wait

The resolutions passed were as fol
lows: "One of the races now coming here
is excessively aggressive, and we fear,
that they look forward to ultimately j
controlling this part of Canada.
"Coming from a country where the
struggle for existence Is keener and
the standard of living lower than inj
