A lot of Canadian people are sorry just now that they displayed so much anxiety for the Japs to defeat the Russians. There is no doubt that that victory has given the liltlo j'ellow men a heap of conceit. They think they can ru.sli into other countries and supplant white labor without objection being rai.sod, but in that they are mistaken. This is a free country up to the point when our own people's best interosts^ are at stake and then vo will put up tho barriers and force Japan to limit immigration at least. The Japs are not being treated nearly ns badly in this country as the Koreans are being treated by Japan. In Korea tha Japs take the homos of the iKjople away without the least hesitation; they abusa and maltreat men, women and clvildren. And .why? Just because they iasl they are aV powerful and can do as they like. The Toronto Glol)e, in two letters recently published from Korea, exposed the conduct of the 'Japs amongst thoso poor people in such a manner as to remove all the friendship a ixirson might ha%e pre-vjpiisly fcad for .lapan. Several clergymen think the bars .should not l>e put down to shut out the?Jap8 but they fail to realize the condition of things. What would the Hontreal minister say if a horde of Jajis were to rush into that city and agree to work for half the wages a white man receives ? Would he sit with foldee party, the Haliii.v litr- rcceivo that blessing." jald, one of the most pronon.iced'lo- ft is cheering to hear clergymen of. r,^' organizations in the Dq t'iiiion. another church speak so kincm- of the ""' that is a Mgn head of the Roman church.
