Washington. Dec. 12. Another ses
sion of the committee of Wcutqrn
Representatives, charged with tho
cnslderatloa of Chlneso exclusion
h glslatlon, was held today. The KBhn
bill Is being us'd as n basil upon
which to work, and with n few amend
inents decided upon by the committee
will unquoHlonnbly bo submitted with
tho Indorsement of the entire Pacific
Coast delegation of both Houses. Tho
ground work of the Knhn bill Is con-
, ilncl to hn the most stringent ami
comprehensive exclusion bill yet drawn
and the committee docs not fear, la
view of the overwhelming senamem
in favor of exclusion, that it will meet
with serious objection.
Theru was fear in some quartors
that a new bill might meet with so
much objection and arouse sucn UC
bata that oxclUBlon mlgnt bo Jcopardlz
..,1 mt thla fear Is nast. With the
monster petition coming from labor
unions all over too country ami west
ern Senators and Congressmen out
spoken lor exclusion, then1 Is no doubt
that whatever tho l'nclflc Coast asks
roi, wlthla tho bounds of rcauou, wilt
bo granted. Representative Henry C.
.Smith of Michigan, who was quoted
among the few as aga.nst exclusion,
hnu ansurud UonrOHentatlvc Kabn that
ho H In favor of tho Kabn bill wl
will votu tor 11. ttaruiy an uuturaj
eiltlelsm Is heard against exclusion,
mid It Is significant '.that such papers
n:i tho Philadelphia hucord. which
was against exclusion before Congress
, convened, have taken the other tack.
Among the ardent supporters of ex
clusion are a number of Eastern Con
messmen. who were Bhown through
San Francisco-Chinatown by Repre-
hi ntative Kahn during the past year.
Cach one of these men Is ready to
speak oa well as vote against admit
line Chlnesa Into the country. In
iiulry Ir.'icates that the point raised
by certain Senators that no exclusion
bill should bo- passed to operate for
lengor than the life of the present
f hlncsfl-Amcrlcan treaty nns no par
ticular weight. It Is pointed out that
tho 8upremo Court has repeatedly
held that a law of Congress, if passed
subsequent to a treaty annuls the con
necting parts of such treaty in tba
samu manner that a treaty ratified
subsequently to an act of Congress
annuls the conflicting parts or sucn
Coombs today presented a number
o.' suggestions. In the form of amend
ments to the bill prepared by the Im
migration Bureau. Onu of the amend
nrnts will reach Chlncso highbinders.
It provides: "Every notorious Chinese
criminal, or Chinese engaged in Incit
ing disorder or brenlelng the law, or
tcrrorlilng tho community, or whoso
general manner Is against tho peaco

shall bo deemed to bn unlawfully in
th United States and subject to do
pi rtation. Such facts shall bo estab

Chinese upon tho testimony of not less
than two credltablo witnesses other
Another amendment provides for
keeping Chlneso now In tho Philip
pines or Hawaii from coming to this
ccuntry, an follows: "No Chlneso or
person of Chinese descent, being
lawfully In Hawaii or any of tho Insu
Inr possessions of tho United States,
shall be entitled to land or remain In

Among the other amendments being

Which business bouse nas tbe first en

When tho people at the Inter-Ishnd

the) found that someone had I icon In

nnd connecting with the offices. One
of tbe smalt sk lights had been pried
op n anil someone had slid donn to otto
of the infters. walking along to tho
Mher end of the shed,
i:lilenll) the fellow nns grcatlv dls
nipoliiti,d with the appearance of
things. He had perhaps thought that
by entering the she-el, he could get
Into the main offices and make a big
haul. As It happened, he found a lot
of Iron shutters staring him In the face
ur.it so he did not make any further at
tempt, for it would hnvo been use-
lis. Hit neitded his way back to tht
nun skylight and mtdn his exit.
An attempt, nns made to get Into
Hie dry goodi store oflljrnvin Bros.
by means of the large sk) light In the
hack part of the store, but the pcoplo
of that business house had prepared
themselves for Just such nu emergency
nnd had had Iron bars put In beneath
the skylight. The housebreaker made
no attempt to break open the skylight
but he left signs of Ills call, one of
which nas the stump of a cigarette.
Tho people at II) man Bros, bad a good
larfgh this morning at the expensp ot
the thief, If the fellow had succeeded
In entering, he would have found quits
a good deal north while big while to
enrry an ay.
A thief, probably the same one that
made the previous tno nttempts, also
entered the two-story brick building at
the corner of Queen and Hotel streets.
He pried open tbo nludow of the
Worthliigton agency nt the back part
of the upper floor. On Mr. Tcaff's
desk, he found a big knife which ho
carried with him to the main entrance
of the Mercantile Printing Co.'s shop
which opens into the hall nnd close to
the stairway. There he cut nnuy the
wood surrounding the lock and enteied
place. He pried open tho eush drawer
and tho desks about the place but did
not get anything for his pains. Had he
blown open the safe, he might have got
In the neighborhood of $500 or so.
Nothing daunted, the thief went out
Into the hnll again and pried open the
door of the offices of DcKreest & Lnu
sing, the customs brokers. There he
rummaged around In all of the desks
until he came to tho one belonging to
the Chlnise office boy. There he
thought ho had struck a bonanza. Had
he been a little moro observing, he
would have been tbe richer by (34.
In one ot the drawers of the desk,
he found a lot of silver spoons which
the Chinaman hud bought for n Christ
mas present to ionic of his friends.
These he did not want nnd threw
them angrily all over the desk. A num
ber of books, he treated In the samo
manner. However, ha did not delve far
enough for, under the very next book
which was left In tho drawer, nas $J0
lu gold and $1 in silver.
When the Chinese boy arrived on tho
sceno this morning, ha thought he hud
lost nil ho had hi tbo desk. 1-ntcr on
he expressed his feelings to a friend
In tho following way: "When I see my
desk open, I very sick. That money be
long to u.Iiul. It was trust money.'
The poor fellow has not jet recovered
from bis "sickness."
When the thief nent out of this
place, ho had the kindness to return to

Cabinet Officer Talks
Very Positively on
TARIFF CONCESSION AND
Not Likely to be One Tariff for the
Philippines and One More Favor
able for CubaWhat the
Wnslilngton. Doc. 11 The Cub&a
iiigar planters, in conjunction with th
tugur trust, have established a lobby
n Washington for the purpose ot s
Lrlng, if possible, reduction on Cuban
jiigar turills. This lobby lias already
appealed to the Wnjt and Means Com
jlttie of the House, naklng for a hear
.ng upon the Cuban side ot tho case,
lid the Wa) 8 nnd Mentis Commlttoe
,as replied that It will be impossible to
jive any such hearing until utter
,ne Christmas holidays nt least. A
.nembcr of the Cabinet nas asked to-
Jay whether It nns true that President
f.ooscvcll would presently send a ei
.lat measnge to Congress asking for
a due tlon of at least 20 per cent upon
Cuban sugar Tho reply from this
Cabinet member nns ns follows:
"I do not believe President Roc--vclt
contemplates doing any such
thing, although he Is very much In
terested In Cuba and the Cubans, t
belle vo that, having already expressed
himself us being lu favor of Impo-dng
full Dlngley tariff rates against tbi
Philippine,' which belong1 to"uV. ha
will not now- turn around and advocate
giving the Cubans a reduction In tariff
upou their sugar. I do not bcllcvti the
Ways und Means Committee of thu
House, having already devised a bill
Imposing full Uluglcy tariff rates
against the Philippines, will now turn
uround nnd report a bill reducing tho
tariff upon sugar. There are always
many surprises In legislation, but such
a move as tnis would pass my com
prehension, and I do not believe It 1
being contemplated either by the
President or Congress. "
Many persons In Congress and out
confound the proposed tariff conces
sion lo Cuba with reciprocity. It
would be merely tariff revision, noth
ing else. There being no government
lr Cuba with which to mnko a treaty,
there can bo no reciprocity with tlyit
country; therefore reciprocity will not
enter Into the question nt all.
