THE CHINESE PROBLEM.
EFFORTS FOR ITS SOLUTION IN THE
The Ten Year Prohibition Hill Before tlir House.
Uproar and Confitvion Anion? the lie miters.
The 3Iriwin Finally Passed Iiclicl
Promised for the Tncific Const.
The feature of legislation in Congress (luring
the -week -was the passicre by the House on
Monday of the anti-Chinese bill with the ten
year period of suspension of immigration.
The bill having been read, Mr. Willis (Ky.)
said that lie would vote for it.
From the conclusion of Mr. Willis's speech
until the adjournment, the House was most of
the time in a state of uproar and confusion,
which was started when Mr. Page, (CaU, who
was entitled to fifteen minutes for debate, in
stead of consuming that time, demanded a vote,
lie had no sooner declared his intention not to
speak, when Mr. Jlice (Mass.) claimed the floor
to speak apwinst the measure, but was not rec
ognized by the Speaker.
Mr. Randall asked leave to have the House
vote upon the amendment fixing the term of
suspension at fifteen years, but was met with a
storm of objections from the Republican side.
Then Messrs. Springer (111.) and Kenna (W.
Ta.) sprang to their feet, demanding that, as a
matter of justice, Mr. Rice (Mass.) should be
permitted to speak against the measure, and a
heated colloquy ensued between Mr. Kenna
and the Speaker as to whether Mr. Kenna had
risen to a parliamentary inquiry, and as to his
right to debate it.
Mr. Robeson (X. J.) also entered into the dis
cussion, wfeich was being carried on in an ex
cited manner, and he was greeted with cries of
The Speaker finally stated that he would
listen to the gentleman from West Virginia,
but that gentleman had proceeded no further
than to say, "If the chair will permit mo, I
respectfully desire " when again there were
loud calls for "Order!" from tho Republican
side, while Mr. Humphreys (Wis.) angrily ex
claimed, directing his scmarks to Mr. Kenna:
"Set him down." There was a great deal of
angry feeling shown on both sides, which led
Mr. Kenna jocularly to request his Republican
friends to have patience, and no blood would
be shed. Mr. Cox (N. Y.) here entered tho dis
cussion, declaring that, in good faith and
equity, the gentleman from Massachusetts (Mr.
Rice) should be heard in opposition to the bill.
The House had already obtained information
from tho gentleman from Kentucky (Mr. Willis)
that he was in favor of the measure, so that
the filing of tho claim meant a half hour in
favor of the measure, and not one moment in
opposition to it.
Mr. Randall (Pa.) took exceptions to some
remarks of the Speaker, and was recognized
by the Speaker to make an explanation, but
he had no sooner started to make his speech
than Mr. Valentine (Xeb.) called for " Order! "
and the call being taken up by other Repub
t. lican members Mr. Randall's remarks were
inaudible, and in a decided tone he exclaimed
that he would be heard.
Mr. Rice (Mass.) again appealed to be allowed
to speak on the bill. The gentleman from Ken
tucky (Mr. Willis) had made the strongest
speech that could be made in favor of it, and
he contended that it was only fair that a man
honestly opposed to it should be heard. The
Speaker lulcd that Mr. Willis having called for
the second had been recognized in opposition
to the. bill, and that tho remaining fifteen
miuutts wc nuvlcr the control of the gentle

colloquy between himself and the Speaker, Mr.

Mr. Page then took the floor, and, when order
was partially restored, said that he was in favor
of tho pending bill because lie believed that
it would bring relief to tho people of tho Pa
Mr. Kasson (la.) said he had opposed the
former bill because he thought that the Presi
dent, under the obligation imposed by treaties
of which he was the chief guardian, would be
obliged to protect the national faith against
some of its provisions. After another scene of
confusion, incident upon another attempt of
the opponents of the measure to be heard, the
rules were suspended and the bill passed yeas

The Senate Committee on Foreign Relations
lias agreed to recommend the passage of the
House bill, above referred to, with a number
of amendments, all of them verbal or other
wise unimportant, except the following: The
committee strikes out entirely the fourteenth
and fifteenth sections, which respectively pro
vide that hereafter no court shall admit
Chinese to citizenship, and define the words
"Chinese laborers" wherever used in the bill
as meaning both skilled and unskilled laborers
and Chinese employed in mining. The section
requiring collectors of customs to remove from
this country any Chinese who shall, hereafter,
unlawfully enter it, is amended by providing
that such removal shall be made by authority
of the President, under regulations to be pre

THE AURORA BOREALI3 DISPLAY.
The aurora display on Sunday night last was
the most brilliant and beautiful that has taken
place for many years. It bgan about 10
o'clock with a thin line light in the northern
heavens, parallel with th horizon. Streaks of
gauzy white clouds of h pyramidal shape shot
upward from this babe, gradually increasing in
number and brilliancy until, at 11:30 p. m.,
fully one-half of the sky was aflame with the
shooting lights of varied tints, and the waves
of electricity rolled over the city like the heav
ing bosom of n troubled sea. In the northwest
the northern lights. :is they are popularly
styled, were especially .beautiful. A heavy
mass Of 'cloud light raised itself above the tops
of the houses and slowly assumed a ruddy hue,
contrasting strongly with the fantastic spires
darting out apparently from its shelter. At
one time, the waves of light were continuous,
and the atmosphere below the line of the aurora
was very peculiar in appearance, and to thoso
unfamiliar with the harmless character of the
phenomenon somewhat awe-inspiring. Tho
coUirs represented, though exceedingly delicate,
were prismatic and easily pointed out. The
lights gradually assumed the shape of a cone,
with itsbaae in the north, northwest, and north
eaut. and its apex extending fur beyond the
zonith, containing within itself innumerable
minor rones very bright and beautiful. After
midnight the display died away, leaving the
ekv lighted up for several hours. Tho effect of
tile iiui-ora borcalis upon the lines of telegraph
wires was somewhat disastrous. It played such
tricks upon the wires that at one time it was
impossible for the New York office of the
Western Union to secure communication with
Chicago, and messages between intermediate
points were ont with great difficulty. ,
Communications from cx-soldicrs tire invited for

OX THE niniiT TRACK.
To tho Editor Xatiox.u. Tkiiiuki::
Sinco I have been in recciptof your valuablo
paper I have become more and more convinced
that tho true interests of our veterans of the
late war is in good hands; that you are on tho
right track, and that you arc pursuing it in tho
right spirit. There can be but one opinion
among the soldiers and sailors in regard to Tun
National Tnir.uxn. and that is that it is a
fjood paper, and one worthy the support of all ;
and they should not only do their utmost to
extend iisinfluoncc, but each individual should
feel it to be his duty to do all he can to enlarge
its field of operations. For myself I cheerfully
agree to do all in my power to aid in its circu
lation. I enclose list as requested.

A PRACTICAL VIEW OF THE MATTER.
To the Editor National Trirune:
In the months of April and May, 1SG5, 1 was
with my regiment in Alabama. The armies of
Leo and Johnson were breaking up, and the
defenders of the stars and bare were returning
to their homes as best they could. Often I
heard these poor men say, with tears in their
eyes, when wo were giving them of our rations,
" I don't know how I should ever get. home
were it not for you Yanks. Wo are driven
from the houses, and not even allowed shelter
at night on the floors of their piazzas. You
know how well wo havo fought you, and suf
fered for these people who have stayed at home,
aiuFnow to be treated so is bard." I did not
uieu think a like spirit could be found at tho
North among thoso men who stayed at home
and became rich by reason of the war. The
Union soldier returned home with broken con
stitution from hardships and exposure tha't
none but those who served in the field can
know, and now we are told by these stay-at-home
men that we received our pay for our
services, and should not bo pensioned. If these
men think by the building of churches and
seminaries (I might well say with the blood,
flesh, and bones of tho Union soldier) thoy are
to gain heaven, they will find themselves mis
taken. The Almighty is not blind. They may
obtain commendation and praise from some of
their fellow-men, but there are others who can
see their hypocrisy. If it has come to this let
tho Union soldiers unite in demanding their
rights. Let us make a political issue. Our
Government is rich, and can well afford to give
us pensions. Let the internal-revenue tax on
patent medicines, alcoholic liquors, and tobacco,
which docs more harm than good, be continued,
and give it to tho broken and prematurely old
men who gave their services to their country
when in peril. I feel that the work of your
ipaper in the interest of the ex-soldier of tho
Union army should receive a hearty support
from every officer and private. I enclose one
dollar for one year's subscription.

JUSTICE MUST RE DONE.
To the Editor National Tribune:
I am a subscriber to your invaluablo paper,
and I look for its weekly visits as I would that
of a dear friend, and it is indeed a true friend
to tho ex-soldier. I can but join with others
in admiration of the bold and fearless manner
in which it repels tho vile slanders and insults
which our enemies heap upon, us,, and I ani
glad we have some champions .for justice to tho
soldier. All honor to IngalhV, VoorneesY6s'f,
Blair, and others, who have taken a' stand for
the rights of the soldier. We do not come as
humble suppliants, asking tho Government to
give us alms, but wo do ask for a fulfillment of
its contract with us. "Who saved the Govern
ment in her great hour of peril ? At tho time
we marchod away they said our soldiers are
our jewels, but it is strange how thoso jewels
have depreciated in value in the estimation of
some of these men; but 1 believo there is yet
left honor enough in these United States, if we
keep it fairly before the people, that justice will
yet be meted out to the defenders of the dear
Old Flag. So, comrades, let us mako one grand
rally, and, with The National Teirune to
aid us repeat our words to the people, wo can
feel confident of justice being done us. So let
us give our hearty support to The Triiiune,
that has done and is still doing so much for the
soldiers of our country. A Soldier.
Lisbon, N. H., April S.
LET THEM IIAVE NO REST TILL THEY REPENT.
To the Editor National Tribune:
I think, as do also the members of mjr com
pany, The Tribune a very valuablo paper to
the ex-soldier, and one that he cannot well do
without; and we think it contains very enter
taining and instructive reading matter for thoso
who never faced tkc horrors of war or shared
in the sufferings caused by the lata rebellion.
It is comforting to tho ex-soldier to know that
lie has a friend in the editor who will so ap
pcalingly and persistently plead for his rights.
The fourth page, where the soldier's needs and
rights are so truthfully presented and com
pared with the needs of thoe upon whom the
Government is so lavishly bestowing its money,
is well worth the subscription price. Long
may you live to stand at the helm, until your
valuable paper shall reach tJ:o home of every
ex-soldier in the land. And more than this,
we hope Congress, (Senator Beck not excepted,)
together with all those opposing tho pensioning
of soldiers, may read your paper, and dud no
rest for their souls nor slumber for their eyes
until they have repented of their sins and come
over to the right side. Then perhaps the
clamor of those who never smellcd powder wlli
cease, and tho appropriation which Commis
sioner Dud icy has so long desired will be granted,
and the wounded and disabled soldier may get
his just dues. George Smith, Ex-Soldier.
P. S. 1 have sent you three names for The
Tribune, and expect to send more soon.
La Grange, Lorain Co., Ohio, April 10.
WOULD GO ON HALF RATIONS FOR IT.
To the Editor National Tribune:
Every ex-soldier in the United States should
take The National Tribune, when it is so
low that it is in reach of all. I would go on
half rations before I would do without itanjr
longer. I served my country over three j'cars,
and came back a wreck. I enlisted in '(51 in the
Thirtieth Indiana Vols., and I had a hand in
all the service the Army of the Cumberland
was assigned to. I think The National
Tribune deserves a place in every soldier's
home in tho land, for it throws its missiles in
the right direction. You will oblige mo by
sending your paper one year, and find enclosed
for the same one dollar ($1 J from an old soldier.

ABLE AND WELL DIRECTED.
To the Editor National Tribune:
1 have been a constant reader of The Na
tional Tribune for about six months, during
which time I have noticed its gradual and
steady improvement. I cannot express the
joy which 1 feel in looking for its weekly visits.
I ttdmiio your editorials. They are able and
well directed, and I am sure they produce good
results, and arc more than worth the price of
"subscription alone, to say nothing of the other.
interesting departments. I am not given to
news paper extoling, but in this case, I could not
well help saying Goo speed to you. If the old
soldiers would advauco their own interests
they will liberally support The National

the soldiers may be amply rewarded. I am very

I am delighted with it. The Tullahoma Cam
paign, by my old commander, General R03C

traveling over the ground again, and ought to

To tho Editor National Tribune:
I received through the post-office at this
place a copy of The Tribune, dated March 18.
I have carefully read it, and think it a God

saved this country, and kept in tact that which
our forefathers periled their lives for, is now
battling for the interest of the Nation's de
fenders. Tho rank and file of the army, who
bore tho burdens of over one thousand days in
the march and battles of the rebellion to save
the country from destruction, should be cared
for as a father cares for his children. Send me
your paper for one year. Enclosed jdcaso find

a reminder to congressmen.
To the Editor National Tribune:
" If Congress don't do something before long to
equalize our bounty and pension, they will not
oxpect much support at our hands at the polls."
The views of Comrade J. W. M. are my senti
ments. The Government can force us to fight,
bet they havo not got to that yet forcing us
to vote as they wish but thcro is no telling
how soon they will, as they can mako us go to
war, and promise us to look after us if disabled,
and then break their xironiises for the sake of
a few bondholders. Please take my mite, one

LET CONGRESSMEN DO THEIR DUTY.
To the Editor National Tribune:
Allow me, through your worthy paper, to saya
word in reference to the House bill increasing
the pension of thoso who lost a leg or arm in the
service of their country. I havosulfered the
loss of the use of my left leg by a slug ball and
three buckshot, which passed through it on the
battle-field of Chickamauga. Every amputated
limb that I know of is troublesome in the same
way that mine is, and I claim, with the fifteen
thousand of my own class, ($1S per month pen
sioners,) that 10 is little enough. Had I not
been wounded I would be earning $100 per
month in my profession. I appeal to every
Congressman, Houso or Senate, under whose
eye this may fall, to make this increase.

the suffering caused by delay. ,,.,
To tho Editor National Tribune:
Your paper seems to be the true friend of tho
soldier and thoso who battled for the preserva
tion of our Union. Through its columns the sol
diers areallowed tospeak,and pass the word back
all along the lino, for which thoy should ever
feel grateful. We see Congress is doing a great
deal for Mrs. Lincoln, Mrs. Garfield, and Grant,
and many others; also remembering the deluged
and flooded southern sections by appropriating
large sums of money for their aid and support;
all of which we concoivc to bo just, proper, and
right. But wo have widows and children
among us whoso condition is distressing. It is
true that soaio of the soldiers' widows draw a
small pension, but thousands have not had their
claims adjusted. We havo also another class
among us invalid men, who were once hale
and hearty. These men were among the first
to answer their country's call. Man- of them
arc growing gray; others are crippled, diseased,
and broken down in health. They toiled on
year after year, with large families, and finally
increase of their disabilities. They at last ap
pealed to the Government they had saved for
what it owed them. Six years havo passed,
and they are yet suppliants their claims un
settled. This class cannot labor; they havo
not money, and some are out of bread. In tho
name of humanity we ask should not these men
havosomo attention, and if possible their claims
bo passed upon. I am not a pensioner, nor tho
son of a pensioner, but say j usticc demands that
these men who helped save this Government
should no longer ho kept in suspense. Money
and clerks should be voted enough to clean up
the work in tho Pension Office. W. P. L.

PASTOR MANN'S EXPLANATION.
The Rev. George Swemforth, while holding
revival meetings at Pawpaw, Indiana, started
one day to drive sister Bookman, the principal
singer in his choir, to a railroad station. She
kissed her female friends in parting, and he,
thinking what "was sauce for the goose was
sauce for tho gander," kissed her also. The
matter causing considerable talk, the evangelist
stated, in a sermon, that Pastor Maim, of the
local church, had also khsed Miss Beekman,
and neither had meant any harm hy it. Such
kissing was commanded by Scripture, and ho
was going to obey, no matter what was said
about it by worldly people.

LEAVES FROM A LOST DIARY,
It war. only a pocket diary, and the finder,
who had picked it up on a street crossing, was
half inclined to toss it back into the gutter,
but on second thoughts put it into his pocket,
and when he reached his office proceeded to
examine it at his leisure. At first he perused
it with but a languid air, but as he read he
became more and more interested in its con
tents until he finally startled the clerks by
jumping up suddenly, putting on his hat, and
bolting through the door as if he had been sent
to summon a doctor in case of life or death.
What was the cause of this singular behavior?
One of the clerks, more curious than the rest,
picked up the diary and read:
Jan. 1. This, I fear, is the last New Year's
day I shall ever see. I feel that I am steadily
breaking down. Called at Mrs. , but could
see that the ladies were not pleased to see a
ghost at their sideboard.
1 Jan. 10. It was very imprudent in me to
"venture- 'out'Xew Year's day. I have had
another scige of it, and I think the doctors
were inclined to believe that I would never
rally again. However, I am now strong
enough to travel, and I shall start for Florida
to-morrow. I shall see the roses bloom again,
Feb. 1. I have been here nearly three weeks.
The air is soft and mild, and it seems good to
be still in this beautiful world; but I am no
better. I sutler less, per Imps, but I am tired
oh ! so tired !
Fel). 22. This is Washington's birthday, and
I can see that the Flag is dying from the flag
staff on the hotel. It is so hard to realize that
a year ago I was as strong and active as any of
these young ofiicers who have como over from
the fort tojyittend tho ball this evening. Tho
days pass slowly, and I am so anxious to get
well. Sometimes I think they have sent me
here only to die.
March 8. Tho doctors have given me up.
They say I may live months" yet, or perhaps
only a few weeks. I am glad to know the
worst. And yet the world is so beautiful, and
I am so young.
March 15. I had a letter from home to-day.
My brother Will sent me a box of pills which
he wants me to try as if I had not already
tried everything. He is a dear, good fellow,
but such an innocent!
March 27. I can hardly believe it, yet I
certainly do feci better. Can it really be the
pills? I concluded to try them, after all, just
out of consideration for Will's feelings. "Dr.
Foster's Bitter Tonic Pills" that is how the
label rends. I wonder what they contain?
April 10. I start for homo to-morrow I
am weak still, and thin, but oh! so much
better! Tho doctors think it is tho air that
has done it they forget that I was dying in
this balmly air only a few weeks ago.
April 15. Home again, and determined to
get well. I am actually gaining ilesh. Tho
pills are certainly curing me.
And that was all. The clerk smiled, tossed
tho little, diary aside, and went back to his
work. Had he followed his companion he
would havo been him embracing a big, burly
fellow, and heard the latter say: "So you
found that miserable little diary of mine, did
you, and didn't know, till you saw my name
in it, tha' I was in the land of the living?
Ye?, it is all true. I had a narrow escape, but
as you seo I have pulled through, after all."

evidence (medical if possible) to show its exist
