We had both Canada and the United States's famous notice displayed out- side huge industrial establishments stating, "No Englishman need ap- ply." Australia's political cry is I "The Asiatic, is prohibited." Now, that thc, war is over we have been ! expecting those cries to be resurrec- ted and we are every day getting ' stronger evidence that the Govern- ment will be hanging out a notice in the Territory "No white men wanted/',. _-.-.-w ^Afready "Rainbow Cottage- il chock full of all the colors from the "Rajah " at the top to the pure blooded niggers at the bot- tom and the system as in operation at present looks good for extension.
