n account of sex, race, or colour. This emancipated city in the mountains is spread in canvas and reared in plank, but five or six whisky-shops and faro-banks are being raised of brick. Yon dainty little sheds, with muslin blinds, are tenanted by Chinese girls, and I have reason to believe that all these Chinese girls are slaves. A centre of many roads, as well as a railway depot, Elko has a future history. Will that history be made and told by the offspring of Mongolian slaves? At Sacramento a street scene shows us how the White children of California are being trained to regard their Yellow brother. There's John! shouts a boy to his playmate; let's pelt him. The two urchins stop their play to shy pebbles at a Mongol labourer toiling at his task, giving his fair day's labour for his unfair day's wage.

Our master in the White House hasnt Grant has spoken either too soon or in too loud a voice. Opinion runs the other way. In Washington men may talk; in Sacramento they must act. The Mongol invaders have put republican principles to a strain which they were never meant to bear, and o justified the authorities, on which the merchants carried an appeal to Chief-Justice Wallace, in the Supreme Court at Sacramento, who sustained the verdict of the local Court. Foiled in their design, they went into the Circuit Court of the United ou compare this Message with the actual facts, what can you call such words but drivel? the Senator proceeds: Here, in Sacramento, we have no illusion on the subject of this coming in of Asiatic scum.
