will take up, they can remain;
but the moment they lift their eyes
to a higher plane of labor that
moment they must be banished
under a deportation law. I never
will consent to write that kind of a
1 w against the labor employed in
any part of this country.
Mr. Burton The comparison
the Senator makes is n complete
answer to his argument. In the
first place, we did no to the jungles
of Africa and we bound some and
brought them to this land. We
are not going to China to bind any
body to bring here. So the com
panion is not a comparsiou, but a
Under this amendment the China
man would come here of his own
free will, and he would come per
mitted to do only a certain kind of
work. The African came here be
cause he was captured and forced
to come and was then put into
slavery. What comparsiou could
anyone except the learned Senator
from Texas make bitween the
existing condition of things in the
old regime and this proposed amend
ment? Now, Mr. President, as I
said before, answer this question:
Docs not the Chinaman get a dis
tinct benefit if you allow him to
come? He docs not want to stay.
He will not stay. He wants to
come and engage in a certain kind
of work for a term of years and go
back. He of bis own volition con
tracts to come utid to do certain
work, just as much as any laborer
is employed to do any specific kind
of work. The only difference is
that we say he shall not come un
less he will contract to do only that
Now, he can stay in China if he
wants or he can come, and he will
come, as he wants to come, because
it is a benefit to him to come and a
ereat blessing to allow him to come.
It is an improvement to the China
man. He carries back to his
country something of a knowledge
of our wise laws and our better civ
ilization, and the employer, instead
of being mean to the Chinaman,
instead of being small with him,
wants to keep him, because he is
commercially honest. He wants to
keep him because he does keep his
contract. He wants to keep him
because it is beneficial both to the
employer and to the employed.
Now, Mr. President, I ask the
chairman of the committee if he is
not willing that this bill shall go
over, so that this amendment may
be considered in connection with
the bill? We can not hope to get
this kind of legislation enacted dur
ing the present ..session unless we
can nave it considered in connec
tion with the pending bill. Since
that is true, and since it is perfectly
apparent that the bill which is be
ing considered will pass I do tiot
mean my amendment, but I mean
the bill generally and since it does
not endanger its passage, I ask the
chairman if he is not willing that
the bill shall go over until such
time as the Committee on Pacific
Islands and Porto Rico can consider
it'and report, so that we may have
a better consideration of this amend
I know all Senators will acquit
me of any purpose to suddenly in
ject this amendment into the bill or
to take any snap judgment on any
body. I am earnestly in favor of
this legislation. I believe it is
necessary for one of our American
Territories, and I see that this is the
only practical way to get it during
the present session.
Mr. Penrose--Mr. President, as
chairman of the Committee on Im
migration, I could not favorably
consider the request of the Senator
from Kansas a moment, nor do I
think any member of that commit
tee would do so, because in my
opinion this amendment does not
belong in the bill. Whether it is
theoretically germane or not I will
not attempt to argue; but, as a
matter of fact, Chinese legislation
has always been kept separate and
distinct from other general immi
gration legislation. It does not be
long here and it is evidently pre
mature. 1 would suggest
Mr. Burton May I ask the Sen
ator from Pennsylvania a question?
Mr. Penrose Certainly.
MtBurton The Senator speaks
of geueral Chinese legislation.
This is not general Chinese legisla
tion. It relates only to one Terri
tory of the United States.
Mr. Penrose It should come in
the form of an amendment to the
Chinese exclusion law, which was
passed at the last session of the '
present Congress. It docs not be-!
long in this bill, which is general '
immigration legislation, and to at
tempt to put it in is to depart from I
the universal practice of Congress,
which is not to mix up the two
kinds of legislation.
The amendment is evidently pre
mature. The committee has not
reported it. The committee is ap
parently divided upon it.
When the Committee on Immi
gration had this question up in ref
erence to the restricted admission
of Chinamen in the Philippine
Islands and in the Hawaiian
Islands they decided not to let
down the bars. As late as last
spring, in the opinion of the Com
mittee on Immigration of the Sen
ate, it was thought better to delay
the development of the Philippine
Islands and the Hawaiian Islands
rather than to let down the bars for
the admission of Chinamen even
under restriction. As far as that
committee is concerned, therefore,
it has already taken a position
against such an amendment, and
no evidence has, been submitted to
it to alter its opinion.
I move, Mr. President, that this
amendment be laid upon the table,
so that when the Senator's commit
tee is ready to report he can bring
it up or introduce an amendment to
the Chinese exclusion act to carry
out the purpose he has iu mind.
I therefore make the motion.

The question of Sir Walter Ral
eigh's burial place has lately been
revived in England. Three church
es claim both the head and body
of the gallant courtier. Immediate
ly after execution, which took place
in Tothill street, Westminster, on
October' 29, 1618, his wife placed
the head in a red bag and rode off
with it in a mourning coach. This
treasure she kept for twenty-five
years. The body was buried in
St. Margaret's Church, but shortly
after the execution Lady Raleigh
wrote to her brother, Sir Nicholas
Carew, asking permission to bury
her husband's body in his church
at Beddington, where she desired
also to be buried. History is silent
from that time on. It is known,
however, that her son treasured the
head as his mother had, and, ac
cording to the London Daily Chro
nicle, tradition says it was finally
buried with him at West Horsley,
Surrey. Dr. Brushfield, who has
made a thorough study of Raleigh
history, is of the belief that when
investigation is made the three
bodies father, mother and son
will be found buried together. He
has suggested to the British Arch
aeological Socictv to inscribe the
stone under which his body is sup
posed to be buried in St. Margaret's,
London, with his name and coat of
arms. No EnglishJ memorial to
this "universal genius" exists.
The west windows in St. Margaret's,
dedicated to his memory through
the enterprise of Dr. Parrar, were
the gift of this country.
