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restaurants have withdrawn from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eons was revoked, but at no stage did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
. 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.

Star Gazer Says That Marriage
"Is Greatest Crime Possible"
LarMri Waits- Twenty \u25a0 Years
to Utter-Startling Idea
"Marrikge for life is the? greatest crime, possible, and marriage
for any stated length of^time is a second degree crime," is the opinion
of Prof. P. Larkin, the i astronomer. . / . ' . >\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." ' Prof Jf Larkin \ says that it was 20 years ago" that j the ideas
he now sets forth came to him. 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 . Francisco
Sociological . society, at . 1091 ? Steiner. street, that ; Professor LWkin made \ the
revolutionary, statement that 'marriage should be abolished. "Is; the Anglo-
Saxon . Race to be ExtinguisHed" in ; America?" was " the title of the lecture,
and the lecturer's answer was ; "yes," and because women are; 'hindered fin
their progress, marriage; he says, surrenders -them: into a state of -bondage
in which 'they cannot develop, and without -the'- proper, development iof
women the race is '\u25a0 bound to die out: VThis '"extinction .will , be helped along,
he thinks, by ; the • 'death's/.: resulting -from attempts to evade .-the care" of
rearing a family, and by the ignorance*!
that -prevails -as to proper methods -of
avoiding this^ responsibility.
. 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. And he says "that, in order that
the - birth" rate shall ; be properly /reg
ulated the government should* remove
the restrictions its puts upon the trans
mission of -• literature of an : , aSvlsory
character, through the" mails. The^ full
est knowledge' regarding this vital mat
ter should . be :. freely V. distributed, he
thinks.; :• ' ', - : . . \u0084' \u25a0 . -.; \
While Professor. Larkin acknowledges
\ that his ideas are revolutionary in
| character, ) he believes that; within a
! very short time they .will be shared by
a large .number :of -.people;,': so,' rapid' is
I progress \ upon "sociological- lines. J y. In
his lecture \u25a0he did hot .work out ;\u25a0 the . de
; yelopment lof \u25a0 society .rj under t his „; plan
except in- the most general way, leav
| ing this i *\u25a0 tof : his \u25a0'• hearerl* ;' imagination^
; But, , any .way,' he is ' dead Bet against
marriage, the crime of the century, and
expresses" himself as in favor of a
promiscuity; such as;; prevails In the
countries :that missionaries have not
