ALL WERE JAPS No White Laborers on the Northern Pacific. Fear Expressed That Other L1r.es Will Secure Immigrants A Hint for Exclusion. (San Francisco Chronicle.) The employment of Japanese labor on the Northern Pacific Railroad has displaced a large amount of white labor and at the rate contracts are being made will soon supersede all of it. A gentleman who has lately returned to Taccma from a trip over the State says: "On the Northern Pacific, after leaving Elljensburg, I saw trainloads and trainloads of railroad laborers ana camps and camps of them, and not a white man among them. All were Japs." A Tacoma dispatch, printed yesterday, states that the coolies are "pouring into the country by thou sands, not only on the ships of the Mail Steamship -Company, but on the ships running into Seattle, Portland, Vancouver and Victoria." The Northern Pacific, having found this labor profitable it is onljr a ques tion or time when the Southern Pacific and all the other Western roads will, if permitted by law, also employ lu. There are literally some millions of Japanese who would like nothing bet ter than fifty cents a day, with food and housing, at any kind of manual labor in this country. Fifty cents ot our moaey is a dollar in the Japanese coinage, and the great mass of coolies outside the treaty ports do not earn an average of twenty-five sen (the na tive cent) per day the year around, and out of that they must pay all tneir living expenses. So a Japanese dollar per day and found means a fortune to the average native laborer. The Northern Pacific, as we believe, pays moro than that now; but when the coolie market becomes glutted the wage scale will fall. At the bottom figure, however, enough coolie laboi may be had to supplant every white section hand west of the Mississippi river, if not every one in the United States. So far, the -laws to restrain contract labor and indigent labor immigration have proved to be ineffective. A Jap anese contract laborer always swears that he is not one; the indigent labor er shows money enough to get him past the customs examiner and then, as soon as he turns the corner, hands it back to tne agent of the emigra tion society that loaned it to him. In Hawaii during Le period when Japan was trying to flood the islands with her surplus coolies every device to head off the influx was unavailing, and to day, if Hawaii had not been annexed, the Japanese might have outnumbered all other nationalities there. Before long, if the inrush is not stopped, there will be more Japanese here than Chi nese. It is greatly to be hoped that this kind oft immigration will not be per mitted to go on until it results in race trouble's and the revival of sandlot poli tics. As it must be "checked some day, it had better be checked soon. Hap pily, the Japanese Government has given many indications of a willingness to assist the United States in solving the problem, even conceding the right of this country, under the terms of one of its past treaties, to enact restrictive laws. If this mood has survived the ratification of the treaties whicb. are about to give Japan the status of a com pletely civilized power, then a way out will be easy to find. That it has done so there is some unofficial evidence, though any formal expression on that point would naturally wait upon the initiative of the American Government. OXNARD COMBINE. The Four Beet Sugar Refiners are Under one Ownership. VENTURA. The last step has been taken in the absorption of the Oxnard beet sugar factory at Oxnard by the American Beet Sugar Company, which was recently organized in New York with a capital stock of $20,000,000. Toland & Andrews, attorneys for the Oxnards, have filed for record with the County Recorder a deed whereby the Pacific Ba-et Sugar Company conveys to the American Beet Sugar Company the Oxnard sugar factory, the 100-acre site and 3,000 acres of farming land near Hueneme, 2,000 acres of which is planted to beets. This deed bears twenty-eight $50 revenue stamps, or a total of $1,400, which represents the consideration to be $1,000,400. The transaction looks to the consolidation of the four Oxnard factories, located at Norfolk and Grand Island, Neb., and Chino and Oxnard, Cal. FRAGMENTS ON TRANSMISSION. Dr. J. Marty, a French criminologist, has recently made an examination of 4,000 delinquent soldiers of the French army and has found that in height, weight, breast measure, muscular pow er and general condition they averaged much better than the well-behaved sol diers. Dr. Marty does not imply that criminals are by nature better physical ly than non-criminals, but suggests that the condition of criminal families is so much more wretched than re spectable ones that only the uncom monly strong survive. TRACT SOCIETY. "WASHINGTON. The annual meet ing of the American Tract Society was held here in the First Congregational Church, the Rev. S. M. Newman n. D. D., pastor, presiding. Rev. Jutlson Swift, field secretary at New York, presented a report of the society's work. Gen. Morgan, ex-Commissioner of Indian Affairs and corresponding secretary of the Baptist Home Mis sionary Society at New York, delivered a forcible address, setting forth the ob jects for which the society labors. The field secretary's report showed that the total number of periodicals printed during the year amounted to about 1,S06,000. and the total number of monthlies since the beginning of is sue about 213,000,000. The secretary published the gospel truth in 153 lan guages and dialects. The society, said the report, Is an ally to all Christian churches. It gives large aid to for eign mission stations. Through its colporteurs, it goes from house to house in the sparsely settled rural dis tricts and densely populated wards of our cities. Since the organization of colportage over 15,000,000 family visits have been made and upward of nine and a half million families have been prayed with or spoken to on the sub ject of personal religion. It was estimated that there are from three to five persons in each house hold. A considerable number of new publications have been added during the past year. The total number of grants in publication have reached a value of upward of two and a quarter millions. The grants of cash and elec trotypes to foreign missions to produce literature in native languages amount to about $S00,000.
