This month marks a new era in steam navigation. Some changes that have come to pass and their tremendous meaning in \u25a0navigating the, sea will be described in The Sunday Call * VOLUME CH.— NO. 102.. California's Birthday Is Fittingly Celebrated at San Jose JAPANESE BUSH TO ARMS; WILL FIGHT TO DEATH Orientals Buy Firearms ,in Vancouver and Await Coming of Mob MORE RIOTS FEARED Rowdies Ready to Meet New Throng to Arrive From Japan Wednesday OFFICIALS ANXIOUS Dominion Government Says Only Way Out Is Apol ogy and Indemnity VANCOUVER, B. C, Sept. 9. As a result of disorders Satur day and Sunday nights, the situa tion here with regard to the Asi atics is increasing in menace, The Japanese have notified Chief of Police Chamberlain that police protection is inadequate and that they will take steps to protect themselves. The Chinese and Japanese employed in hotels and restaurants have withdrawn from work. It is said that their leaders have instructed them that they must not work, under penalty of $100. The Japanese are purchas ing- firearms and the aspect of affairs Js threatening-. The. steamer. Mont tagle, due \u25a0Wednesday or Thursday with many orientals on board, will be met by a hostile demonstration. It is freely -declared that the orientals will r.et be allowed to land- There is growing uneasiness In the city. The feeling is increasing that, In view of the number of Japanese, Chinese and Hindus in Vancouver, the minister of militia should take steps to protect them. Several restaurant keepers met this morning and resolved to employ nothing but white labor. The early reports of the disorders Saturday night yrere exaggerated. The crowd amounted to about 10,000, but the temper manifested was merely boisterous. The crowd surged through the streets in the oriental Quarter, cheering everything white .and hooting and denouncing everything colored.. At intervals from an indistinguishable point in the crowd, brickbats would hurtle over the intervening heads and crash through the windows. Chief of Police Chamberlain, recog nizing the inadequacy of the force at his disposal, relied on diplomacy, and, fearful of arousing the passions of the mob, he directed his men to lay aside truncheons and exercise moderation. Later the order regarding the trunch eons was revoked, but at no stage did the police and the populace come to blows. . Personal encounters were limited to ' the Japanese quarter. The Japanese resisted the mob. Arming themselves with knives, daggers, clubs and* bot tlea they charged the crowd with ehouts : .of"banraL** The crowd carried no arms .'and scattered after much damage had been done. One white man was .stabbed, . another cut by a stiletto and another's head was laid open with a broken bottle. The report that disorders were started by Belilngham men is not cred ited. The reports show that the riot ing was not confined to any particular class. Book keepers, loggers, laborers were among the 19 persons arrested. The hearing of the charges against the participators in the an tl- Asiatic riots was begun In the police court today. The courtroom was thronged and crowds lined the street* In its vicinity. The arming of the orientals becomes more alarming. Downtown stores have been cleared of their stocks of firearms. Oriental labor is suspended entirely and restaurants are hard put to carry on their business. Lumber mills re port that oriental laborers going to .work this morning were met by pick ets of fellow countrj'men . and were induced to return to their homes. Prominent Japanese residents take a grave view of the situation, declaring that the coming of the steamer Mont eagle Wednesday, In view of the pres ent* feeling among the Japanese, and whites alike. Is an Incident fraught with serious menace.

' . >\u25a0 This is not a-snapshotopinion, either, uttered in the heat of the moment, but the result of :long'deliberation, and presumably of much gazing at the heavens, where there ?is neither marriage nor giving, in marriage."

Seven years -ago he determined ; t6 give them -to the public/ ;butl thought; the .time; notj just ripe. \u25a0 He" concludes that the public-has now attained to a state of receptiveriess making it capable, of; appreciating his theories- regarding." life. - , . ,It ' was \ at .a- lecture -delivered :j last night: before the \ San .

Professor Larkin holds to, some ex tent' President Roosevelt's ideas on the race suicide question, but is not an •ex tremist, lie wants race-suicide Jimlted, but not abolished- To this end : mar riage should be abolished, 'allowing woman to develop mentally and - physi cally and be properly fitted for mother hood.
