The poor Asiatic appears to be
persona non grata In society of all
kinds, whether commercial, political
or domestic, in what Is called the
white man's country. First It was
tho Indian who seems to have made
his way, If speculative historians are
to be credited, from Asia to this con
tinent by way of Behrlng's Strait.
He came cast and should have gone
west so as to reach America in the
regular order and by century-slow
stages. Then came tho Chinaman
who, thirty years ago met- his fate
In the Chinese exclusion act. After
this Jho little Jap began to provoke
hostilities and now tho poor Hindoo
in the Sound cities, is meeting op
position. The trouble with the Indian wa3
that ho wouldn't work and would
light. So we killed him off. Had
he gone with his tartaric kind from
tho desests outsido the Chinese Wall
and settled In Hungary with the
Magyars or in Allemanla and Gaul
with the Goths and Vardals he might
have received a European education
and so been qualified to begin tho
breeding of American citizens for the
future. He reached tho promise land
tho wrong way and so met his fate.
But the Chinaman and the Jap show
signs of moving west. The Japs are
entering Corea and China. The
Chinese are moving into Siberia and
Tibet. It were better so. Let them
go west as the white man's remote
ancestors did and come with the ris
But what about tho Hindoo? He
can't go west. The Himalaya moun

CAPTAIN HARRIS' EXAMPLE.
An incident waB reported in tho
columns of tho Times a few days
ago which indicates tho deep interest
the substantial class of farmers and
stockmen in tho Coos Bay district
take In tho building of a city on
Cogs Bay. Captain Harris, of Sum
ner, well known and greatly respect
ed in Cooa County, learning that the
hotul at jMurslilleld was to bo actual
ly built, oxpressed a hope that he
and tho people of Sunnier might be
allowed to furnish tho first day's
"feed" when tho hostolry was fin
ished. Tho idea appeals to tho appe
tite and tho imagination. It sug
gests tho remarkable bill of faro
containing only Items of homo pro
duction which can bo offered to tho
fortunato guests. Think of tho
clams, llali, crabs and sea food; of
tho rich cream, butter and cheese; of
tho beef, pork, veal, lamb or mutton;
of tho chicken, turkey, duck, geese,
enlpo, and, possibly tho venison and
other ganio (given, of course); of
tho wonderful potatoes, turnips,
beets, tomatoes and innumerable and
perfect vegetables!; of tho peaches,
pears, plums, prunes, apples, straw
berries, blackberries, huckleberries,
nuts and fruits which would bo on
that bill of fare now, If tho hotel
were tluished. And all produced in or
near Sumner. Would not tho guest
from an eastern stuto opon his eyes,
aud under tho inllucnco of such a
banquet and of Coos Bay's ovor de
lightful climate, would ho not
lengthou his sojourn and Anally go
back homo to pack up and return
with his friends and neighbors?
But tho appeal to tho appetite and
fancy Is not all that this offer of Cap
tain Harris exemplifies. Tho wlso

to Coos Bay, oven as far south as
Myrtlo Point yes , of Port Orford
and as far north as Florouce, ap

mines, justify a market town of moro
