i No Chinamen Wanted.
. Vancouver. B. C. Jan. 30. "No
Chinamen wanted." Is the slogan for
the moment for the Winnipeg Trades
nd Labor CounclK It was recently
reported that an overall factory on the
Pacific coast Intended to estabjisn a
branch at the prairie capital, and op
erate it entirely by oriental labor. ,
Winnipeg has no objections to an
other factory, but it does not want the
Celestials. It prefers that British Co
lumbia keep them. The labor count-it
has accordingly taken the matter
up, and has particularly appealed to
to the women to back It up m Keep
ing the Chinese out "Knowing some
thins: of the injurious effects that such
concerns have," says, a resolution of
the council, "especially as they are in-
lurious to the women workers, we feel
alarmed that any such proposition
should be entertained by any gooa citi
zens." The council accordingly calls
on all Winnipeg merchants, workers,
employers and employes to discounten
ance the Inauguration of a Chinese-1
operated factory in as strong a man
ner as possible. ,
Threstened From Another Quarter.
Paris.. Jan. 80. Oscar T. Crosby,
the American explorer, has returned to
Porli frcm a trip to central Asia, where
he explored parts of Turkestan and
Thibet never before visited by a white
mwv. On his way to Thibet Mr. Cros
by skirted Afghanistan, visited Chinese
Turkestan and later traversed the
Kashmir and Karakorum route, prob
ably one of the most difficult used by
human beings, to India. His investi
gation developed that China was
threatened from another quarter, by
her rear door, and that an advance by
Russia and Great Britain In this direc
tion may become as Important In its
possible result to the United States as
a move of the European powers from
the sea.
Washington, Jan. 30. Secretary
nitchpock today received the following
telegraphic report of wholesale arrests
made in the land fraud cases at Pen
dleton, Ore.:
"The important arrests made yester
day in the land fraud cases Includes
eight entrymen, Notary Public Parks,
who prepared fraudulent homestead
entries; County Judge Hartman, who
certified the same; and Cunningham, a
sheep king of eastern Oregon, who fur
nished money and for whose benefit the
land was taken. It is believed that
Cunningham has many thousands of
acres acquired In the same manner."
Will Wait For Japan.
' Paris, Jan. 30. Gaulols quotes a
high authority as follows: "Russia
will not' declare war unless she Is at
tacked by Japan. This Is the will of
the czar and the fundamental base up
on which negotiations will be contln
ued. At St. Petersburg it Is believed
that Japan, despite her belligerent at
titude, appreciates the madness of en
gaging in war.
"Russia Is ready to give satisfaction
to the legitimate claims of Japan, on
condition that her Interests are safe
guarded. At this hour war depends
upon two eventualities an attack by
Japan or some local incident In Corea
necessitating military intervention."
