London, Sept. 10. Neither the
Colonial office nor the foreign oflico
have received ofllcial information re
garding tho anti-Asiatic riots at Van
couver. Two long dispatches have
been received at tho Japanese em
bassy from Canada, but these have
not been'communlcated to tho British
government. The Colonial office di

cers of the Canadian government
Washington, Sept. 10. That a
stringent exclusion treaty between
America and Japan is measurably
nearer realization than tho most
optimistical administration officials
have believed forty-eight hours ago,
is tho judgment of the members of
tho diplomatic corps. This long
sought object is expected to bo ob
tained, perhaps as an indirect result
of mobbing of the Japanese at Van
couver. Tho officials deplore what
they view as an unfortunate and un
warranted Infraction of the treaty
rights of tho Japanese, but they do
not fall to perceive at once the im
portant bearing this Incident will
probably have upon negotiations be
tween tho state department and tho
Japanese embassador looking to
the drafting of a treaty.
The belief that the treaty is now
within sight Is based on the condition
that tho Japanese government will
now be brought face to faco with tho
fact that tho Asiatic cannot discrim
inate between Great Britain and the
United States in matters of demands
for fair treatment for Its subjects
and must by this timo be convinced
that tho problem presented Is really
a radical one. Tho only solution win
, Ho in a formal recognition by the
Japanese of tho right to restrict
Coolie Immigration, not only in
America but in British Columbia,
Australia and other British colonies.
To take any other view, it is pointed
out here, would mean a breach of
the alliance with England, of which
the Japanese have been so proud and
which they regard as so necessary to
development of their ambitious
schemes for exploitation of the east,
for though tho British government
may and doubtless will apologize for
tho Vancouver affair and even pay
indemnity, repetition of the incident
is believed almost certain unless tho
British government yields to the de
mands of British Columbia in tho
matter of restriction of Japaneso j
As a matter of fact
negotiations aro already on loot db
tween the British and Japanese gov
ernments to regulate the influx of
Coolie laborers into British Colum
bia. Tho Vancouver incident it is
believed hero will hasten tho nego
tiations to a conclusion, and if the
Japanese enter Into treaty relations
of that kind with Great Britain, she
cannot refuse to do so with America,
so that there Is after all prospects.
Embassador Orki Is again In confer
ence on thlB subject.
PROTEST AT OTTAWA.
Consul Nosso Presents Information to
Jannnese Consul Nosso today re

Consul Mora Kito at Vancouver
about 10:30 last night, (Monday).
"Rioters set the Japanese primary

Cotton WaMc, Saturated With Oil
Found Under Japanese
Vancouver, Sept. 20. In great ex
citement, Morlkawa went to Mayor
Bethuno this morning and demanded
he have tho militia called out to pro
tect his countrymen. Morlkawa
stated attempts was made to burn
every Japanese house in Vancouver
and that Cotton waste saturated with
oil had been found under the door
of tho Japanese methodlst Mission.
Tho mayor tried to reassure tho con
sul, assuring him that the authori
ties had the situation well In hand.
Finally to appease tho consul, the
mayor agreed to telephone to Col.
Holmes commanding the militia in
this district asking that the militia
bo ordered to hold themselves in
readiness. Tho body of a Chinese
was found hanging to a tree in a
suburban garden today. It is report
ed the Chinese was hanged by his

there has been no further attempts
at renewed rioting. None of the
Japanese have yet returned to work
In the lumber mills which are still

cooks bids fair to last longer and
tho restaurants are closed. Hotels,

VISIT HIS OLD
Wealthy Nevada Mining Man Visits
Ills Friend Clay Moore and
J. W. Crossen, from Sliver Peak,
Nevada, is a guest of his old time
friend, Clay Moore. Mr. Crossen
and Clay were companions and
friends twenty years ago, and punch
ed cattle on the ranges in Eastern
Oregon and Idaho together. Mr.
Crossen went to the Nevada gold
fields two years ago and since then
has accumulated a fortune. One of
tho Incidents of his visit here was
to look up a brother, Scott Grossen.
whom he had not seen for a number
of years. He was awaro his brother
was in this vicinity, but did not
know his exact whereabouts. Mr.
Moore was able to locate the broth
er, and Mr. Crossen spent several
days at his home on Kentuck Inlet.
This week, Mr. Crossen received
word from Silver Peak to return
home on business matters and he
will sail today on the Plant. He will
return, however, and finish out his
vacation on Coos Bay, which ho
thinks ono of the most pleasant
places ho ever visited. He Is inter
ested in many districts in the gold
fields and has twenty-seven claims
at Silver Peak which aro being
sought by largo operators in that
district. On his trip homo he will
likely dispose of several of these
claims, since that Is the matter
which calls him.
Mr. Crossen tried to prevail upon
his friend Mooro to accompany him
to Nevada for tho short Btay, offer
ing to pay all the expense Incurred,
but Clay has a certain prldo In tho
way of money matters and so Is not
Mr. Crossen, In his two years' ex
perience In Nevada has seen and ob
served a great deal and his tales of
the ups and downs among tho min
ing men and others Is interesting.
He relates one instance of sudden
acquirement of wealth which likely
has been equaled but seldom is
chronicled. A staid New Englander
came out from Boston. Ho had al
ways been a saving man and had ac
cumulated some money which he
took with him for Investment. Upon
becoming acquainted, he lost his
head and was drawn by tho fascina
tion of gambling into ono of tho
many games of chance which flourish
in the gold region. Ho thought to
take a short cut to wealth but in
stead, lost ten thousand dollars,
practically all ho had, except seven
or eight hundred dollars. Ho then
made up his mind to return homo
and get down to hard work again.
Before leaving, ho bought 60,000
shares of Mohawk mining stock, at
10 cents a share, and apparently for
got all about It. One day, some tlmo
afterwards, ho picked up a paper
andlooklngat tho mining puotatlons,
he saw Mohawk listed at $19 per
share. Ho did not believe it was tho
stock he held, and so, for a while,
paid no attention to It. But ho
finally made Inquiries and found his
stock had Increased to that figure.
He sold out at $18.50. The reader
can figure for himself what this man
made through sheer luck.
Mr. Crossen says it is gratifying to
get out of such a country for a tlmo
and see trees and running
water. In tho section of Nevada
where he is located there 1b no living
thing In tho way of verdure and
water Is such a rarity that It costs
consumers from three and a half to
seven dollars per barrel, and most
people think it cheap at that. Mr.
Crossen has visited several sections
of tho county, and thinks of making
Investments when ho returns. He
suggested to the Times roporter that
a good booster sent to the mining
districts of Nevada could interest
Imany people In Coos Bay, since there
are many there with accumulated
wealth which they desire to Invest
but do not know whoro to go, or
what to do with their money.
