Marshfleld, Oregon, Nov. 19. To
tho editor of Coos Bay Times:
Dear Sir: In today's number of your
valuable paper appears n very in
teresting, but rather one-sided ar
ticle, picturing in vivid and sympa
thetic colors tho arrival, prosecution
and departure of a number of His
British Majesty's East Indian sub
jects, who recently arrived in this
city In quest of employment. As
cited, they came to these shores,
after having heard of tho wealth, tho
education, tho goodness and toler
ance supposed to exist amongst fol
lowers of the lowly Nazarene. Wheth
er the people appreciate or care for
that distinction, I will leave aloho,
and if the Asiatics anticipated any
correspondingly welcome, it was
their mistake, for nobody ever asked
them over hero, except, perhaps, tho
agents for a trans-Pacific steamship
company, who In order to Increase
the company's dividends, conjured
pictures of fabulous wages, that
could be earned here, up for a people,
used to starvation and famine. It
was the quest for the American man's
wealth, his dollars, and not his other
advantages, that made tho Hindu
cross the thousands of miles between
his native land and our shores. And
disillusion became a natural conse
quence. We tolerated the Chinese
and received the Jap, while they con
tented themselves with employment
as house servants or work In laun
dries, but when the Asiatics Invaded
the field of the white laborer, troub
le loomed up, and as now, when
steamship after steamship dumps
hundreds of Aslntlcs, unclean and Ig
norant Lascars, sheiks and Hindus,
who encroach upon the field of la
bor to Buch an extent as1 to jeopard
ize the very existence of 'the white
man, something was sure to happen.
The white man resented the Intruder
and did It forcibly as In Vancouver
and Bellingham, Portland and Se
attle. And why should not the la
borer resent? Why should he silent
ly submit to be replaced by a being
so much his physical and moral in
ferior? Should men, born and raised
in this country, who support families,
educate their children, build up
homes, and directly or indirectly
bear their share of taxation, should
they step aside, looking Idly on,
while a horde of Asiatic degenerates
usurp their place? Should they grin
and bear, while those same beings
returned to their homeshores, there
to live in frugal contentment, on the
money they earned and hoarded,
while men of oi' n flesh and blood
are left for t. "t Ives and theirs
to face starvation. If this Asiatic
invasion was directed against some
professional class of citizens, their
association would move Heaven and
earth, forcing legal acts, that would
prevent the Intruder from becoming
a competitor on that special field
Or If skilled labor In any one of Its
branches was threatened, the unions
would declare strike after strike
until the danger was past. But tho
common, unskilled, white- laborers
of this country are powerless against
Invasion, he cannot Influence legisla
tures, nor can he declare strikes,
only when his own particular "jqW
is threatened, he acts, can act and
does so, violently maybe, but ha Is
fighting his own fight for existence
in the face of heavy odds, and all
credit Is due to him.
The only recommendation, tho
Hindu or his brethren have to offer,
is their willingness to work for less
than the white laborer. If an Aslatlo
is paid two thirds of a white man's
wn-roB. lio can still save as much
and more than the white man, as his
living expenses are as small as pos
sible. While tho average white la
borer pends his money or Invests It,
as ho please, the Asiatic hordes his
money not banking it, mind you
until such a time when they judge
themselves able to live the rest of
their lives in comparative ease and
luxury; returning with belts lined
with gold, not stocks or bonds, but
cool coin. And as for our religion,
our civilization, our literature, our
language, wo can keep them for our
selves. There Is hero on this bay tho
making of a city, second to none
from Cape Prince of Wales to the
Horn, but If tho hospitality, your
sympathy Infused' you with, had been
extended the myriads that would
have followed tho few, would have
driven every white laborer from here.
And It Is undisputable that the la
borer Is tho backstay of the commu
nity; on his earning capacity and
his spending ability rests the pro
gress of any small community, If
the white man was supplanted by
Asiatics your business would de
crease, your community would lose
men of brawn and brain, supplanted
by an unassimilating race, with
strange, yes, hostile, manners and
Your editorial song of sympathy
was grand, poetic and well meant.
But In this day and age of cool facts,
that this city bo easily got rid of un
desirable citizens, without a blot oh
Its fair name, ought to have Inspired
an article, brimming over with
thankfulness for good riddance,
sounding in an undertone the warn
ing, that this place is for those only
who will upbuild the community
while working for themselves; men
for whom this country Is fair enough
to live In and good enough to die In.

LONG TIME A DRUMMER.
Among tho arrivals on the Plant,
and who has just returned from a'
business trip from the river, is Dr.
W. H. Wood. Known to every one
as "Dr." The old man holds his
years well, and looks no older today
than he did years ago, when he first
started on tho road peddling drugs.
Doctor Is one of the oldest of tho old
guard, and In a reminiscent mood last
night, at the Blanco, he related some
of the experiences he had run Into in
his long life as a drummer. Whem
the old wheel-horse first started In
the drug biz., Lydia Pinkham's com
pound had never been heard of
Mexican Mustang liniment had been
only one year on the market, and
Hostetter's Stomach bitters and
Wizard OH had just been started.
Clay Moore had just discovered The
Buffalo Hump country. Dr. Straw
was wearing his 'first pair of yarn,
galluses back in the Old Dominion,
and Chas. Howard was plodding to
school, a bare foot boy, with a little
green primer. Father Time has
dealt kindly with the old man, and
he Is today as nifty after biz. as any
of the younger generation of electric
lights of commerce, who have come
and gone during his long and suc

than you have been paying. Watch
