Discus sion of proposed legislation looking to the exclusion of Japanese labor era yesterday In the British Colum bia parliament, brought forth strong language from members from Van couver, who declared that the situa tion la growng serious and will re sult in a re-sort to arms unless some measure to relieve It is adoated soon. Dr. McOuIre, on of the members from Vancouver, made a strong ap peal to the .house, asking that some remedy be applied before the citizens of Vancouver take desperate meas ures to prevent Japanese aggression. "The situation is growing desper ate," he said, "and if the Japanese continue to encroach on the rights of our citizens as they have done In the past and are doing now, a resort to arms will undoubtedly be neces sary for self protection. The recent open breach between citizens of Van couver and Japanese Is but an Indi cation of what will come shortly un less the Japanese ere excluded. "Every Japanese Immigrant is armed and this Is a menace to the peace of our citizens. Hi nee the open break a short time ago Japanese have been pouring into Vancouver by the hundreds and every one that arrives is armed and becomes a part of the horde already residing in the city. Thus armed, they are able at a minute's notice to rally to the sup port of any member of the colony who might get into trouble and would then have at a disadvantage citizens of the town. "Unless measures are taken at once to disarm them, citizens of Vancou ver will be forced to arm themselves In self defense, and should any trou ble arise thereafter between individ uals It would In all probability de velop Into a riot -which could only result In many crimes. "The 125,000,000 due British Col umbia and which is now held by the government, should be expended without delay in providing armored cruisers to patrol and defend the Pa cific coast of Canada. As It Is now we are without defense of any na ture, and this defect should be rem edied before it is too late. "Urgent measures should also ',e taken to exclude all Japanese from Canada, -whether such measures are displeasing to the government of Japan or not. We owe our citizens the protection which they naturally expect and should not be influenced in this matter by the wishes of the people whom we are trying to ex clude." Other members for Vancouver were Insistent that the exclusion of all Japanese must be accomplished before tho situation is relieved of the serious aspect given it at the recent rioting.
