Committee on Foreign Relations Finds
Bill Acceptable Discussion
of Effect on Trade With
Washington, Dec. 18. The House
Committee on Foreign Relations held
an Important meeting today and con
sidered tho subject of Chinese, exclu
sion In an informal way. Chairman
Jlltt announced an entire change of
heart on the subject, coming out
Htrongly for exclusion. The delega
tion representing ths American
Asiatic Association of New York ap
peared before tho committee and
inado a protest against a too rigorous
exclusion bill, on the ground that It
would affect commerce with China.
John Foord, secretary of the associa
tion, laid Btrcss on the point that Chi
nese merchants should be permitted
lo enter the country In order to buy
Ho admitted, after discussion, that
'' the exclusion act would not work Im
mediate harm to commerce, but feared
that when the awakening of China
nmo thcro would bo a protest from
the higher classes and merchants. The
committee was Inclined to leave that
bridge to bo crossed when China
Herman Gutstedt, representing the
American Federation of Labor, was
also before tho committee and advo
ated rigorous exclusion. It was ap
parent that tho commlttco was In fa
wr of rigorous measures. Chairman
llltt Bald: "Why, tho Chlneso are now
sneaking In over tho northern and
houthern borders, breaking the laws.
Wo must have a law that will exclude
" It Is certain that the bill framed by
thu Pacific Coast members known ns
tho Kahn bill, will be tho one taken
un by tho committee to be reported
Tho sub-commtttoo of the Pacific
) Coast Representatives In charge of
1 the Kahn exclusion bill met again
l today. Assistant Attorney General
Mloyt. who is thoroughly posted on the
exclusion laws, was witn mo commit
tee. Ho had tho bill in his possession
and went over It carefully and gave
his opinion that It was constitutional
nnd sound. The? Department of Jus
tiro favors tho Khun bill, with amend
ments offered by Coombs, because It is
n practical codification of tho exclu
sion measures, and slmpllfllcs pro
ceedings In all actions looking townrd
thu exclusion and deportation of Chi
nese. Representative Schlrm of Baltimore
Informed Representative. Kahn today
that the Maryland delegation had held
n caucus on Chinese exclusion, and
had decided to stand by tho California
members in any bill thoy might intro
duce. Eastern and Sotunern members
havo assured Kahn that they are ready
to vote for his bill, while tho opposi
tion, If any, has failed to mako Itself
Several California Congressmen
have received notes from tho commit
tee on Chinese exclusion appointed
by tho Exclusion Convention held In
San Francisco In October, requesting
them to hold un the Kahn bill until
thu committee could arrive claiming
that tho hill was too drastic, and that
better action would bo to work for tho

icfercuco to Qcary was unfortunate.

convinced that tho late convention was

JAPANESE ATTACKED AND

Cowardly Act at Kamoiliili Tuesday
Night-- J. Lekahio, Pasture
i Keeper, Tells Story
J. Kekahio was at the police station
early this forenoon complaining to the
authorities about the actions of a num
ber of Japanese last Tuesday night.
This Is the story he told and It la no
doubt the truth, for the native is well
known as a respectable, peaceable and
"I am the keeper of the Neumann
rasture in Kamoiliili. I was awakened
late Tuesday night by the nolsa of
horses running about In the yard. I
ran oui to see what was the matter
nnd , fearing that tho gate might bo'
open and that the stock might have
escaped, I saddled my horse and pro
ceeded nt once to Investigate.
"1 found that the gate was Indeed
open and that thcro were several head
of strange stock in the yard. I had
just started to diie them out when I
wai- seC upon by SI' teen or twenty Ja
ponesc, evidently the owners of the
animals. They bc.it mo almost ,rto In
sensibility and then lied rr.o to t!ia
fence, where I remained all night.
"In flio morning, iny friends, locat
ing me, untied tho ropes nnd set ma
free. Evidently, tho Japancsa had been
keeping watch for they set upon me
and my companions and there was a
terlrble fight. Other natives arrived
with blacksnakes and the cowards of
Japanese turned tall, retreating pell
mcll. The Japaneso give as an excuse
for beating be that they were of the
opinion that I was bent on stealing
A warrant for the arrest ot nine ot
the Japanese has been issued and they
will be arrested today. Kekahio can
identify every one of them.
At the meeting of the Governor's
council this morning, a protest -was
cubmltted from two property owners

ATTACK TWO OFFICERS
There was trouble last night In tho
Japanese theater, situated at the cor
ncr of River and Pauahl streets. The
crowds at tho place and the' delay In
getting information to tho police sta
tion, prevented the police from captur
ing any of those concerned.
The two special police officers detail
ed for duty at the theater Wm. Leh
mann and Gustav Anderson were at
tho door as usual. Tho theater was
crowded long before tho time set for
tho performance to begin. On tbo out
side wero about two hundred more Ja
panese, clamoring for admission. The
police officers would not allow any
more to enter the door.
It was at this point that the Japan
ese on the outside began to demand
entranco in nngry tones. The. police
persisted in their duty and soon Leh-
mann found himself on tho ground.
He has no Idea who hit him tor tho
blow came from behind. Anderson was
hit In (he head with n stone 'and felled
to the ground, a gaping wound with
blood spurting therefrom being his
payment for attending to tho duties
prescribed to him by his superiors.
Lehmnnn, when ho recovered, ran
to the police station for help and Cap
tains Parker and Kanae responded
As was expected, the cowardly fellows
who never attack unless they happen
to be in overwhelming numbers, had
slunk away In the darkness, leaving no
one but the Japanese doorkeepers, so,
of courso, nothing could bo done,
Mlther I.chmann nor Anderson can
Identify any ot the men who attacked
them bcrauso the crowd was so great.
