T. T. NcDOVOA L, EDITOR AND PROPRIETOR. Wtdnewlav, Feb. 13, HM>7. No War With Japan. Naturally trie talk ol war with Japan is all jingoism, and a very poor quality of jingoism at that. Japan does not want any war with the I_ nited States lor a great many years at least, and in fact does not want any war with anybody until she somew hat reduces her I'lioruioin national debt and gets industrially reorganized. At the same time, the bellow Peril as regards Japan is a| very real menace. Thrs is made plain by the report of the ( onunis sioo? r-General of Immigration who has recently retimed to Washington from the Hawaiian Islands and who made a special study ol the Japan ese situation in Calilornin. He says that the menace of the Japanese invasion is not militaiy, but industrial. The Japanese is not like the Chinaman. lie does not take a laundry on the eorner and stay there until he accumulates enough money to return to Japan, but he comes with a readiness to take any position however menial that will give h;m a start in life, and this once attained, there i nothing in tbe way of trade, busi ness or profession, that he considers beytnd his reach. The situation on the Pacific coast where in spite ol their protests against social equality they art; con tinually inviting the coming of Japanese. laborers is simply this: The Jap comes to this country and takes a position as a laborer, a , household servant, or a fat in hand, and by industry and frugality, tor the nation possesses both in a high degree, be soon obtains enough money to buy the farm on which he is workmg, or another in the iin mediate neighborhood, to start an opposition business as a blacksmith, a contractor, or a mechanic of some aort, or possibly to attend a profes sional school and branch out as a dentist, a doctor or a lawyer. There is no denying that the Japanese are a thrifty and capable people and the experience of Calitornia and the whole Pacific coast has been that where they once gel a foothold they stick and are soon the equals, if not tbe superiors of the natives in an\ business or profession they adopt. -tjOThe of the railroads in the west are already replacing their laborers. | their train crew, and their dining and sleeping cars crews with tb« Japanese employes so far as the\ are able to do it. President Jamer Hill of tbe Great Northern is one ol the leadr rs in this railroad move ment, although he doubtless would! deny it if the accusation were made The id*a of ihe railroads is to get as cheap labor as possible regard- ! less of the fact that the Japanese! once installed ihey will not be loi g in adopting the trade union system, and they have this unpleasant feature in addition to American trades union traits, that they always •trike without giving notice. They may be considered an exceedingly dangerous factor in American civilizalior. Hut the danger will not come in the probability of war at any near date, but rather in introducing into American life a race of people who regard us as oarbarians, who will never assimi. late with the communities in which they live, and who, all things con sidered, are qu’te our equals in acuteness, but she will never be a reliable factor in the equation of American citizenship.

It bent its boughs and softly breathed tollowing with a sigh: I have lived here for many a year and saw the summers come and go. The spring time with its bowers and rain, the win ter with its chilling blast, when white with snow and ice the skies are over-cast, in sum mer time beneath my shade have children of teu played, and oh, how oft beneath my boughs have lovers reuewed their plighted vows and many a time the old aod feeble have sought n.y shade to smoke their pipes or ply the needle; and thus it's been with smiles and tears I have watched them come and go for three score years, and mauy a tale I could tell of what iu that time befell, but age is now creeping o’er my head and I fear my limbs are getting dead: and soon I w i I 1 dry and decay like those who sought mv shade each day — Kx.
