Lord Windsor on Chinese Labour. Speaking at a Unionist demonstration at Lowestoft on Wednesday, Lord Windsor (First Commissioner of Works) proposed a resolution congratulating his Majesty's Government upon the wise and prudent administration of home and foreign affairs, and more particularly upon the conclusion of the Anglo-French Convention, and for having laid broadly and permanently the foundations of a great educational reform through- out the country in the passing of the Education Act. Spe3king of Chinese labour in the Transvaal, his lordship said one objection was that the introduction of the Chinese would prevent the country becoming a white man's country; and another contention was that the conditions of the Ordinance in reference to indentured Chinese labour amounted to slavery. The only way in which Chinese labour could compete with white labour was by introducing without any restrictions; but the people of the Transvaal could not stand that, aud the Ordinance was 80 framed as to prevent that disadvantage. He said with confidence that under the regulations which were to be enforced Chinese labour would not compete with white labour. Surely, it was desirable to develop the resources of South Africa by the employment of lower class labour there in order to find work for British skilled labour. It was a monstrous abuse of language to say that the Government was condoning an Ordinance which partook of slavery, while the parties to the contract were perfectly free.
