i slde-ave and 12_th-st.. where she had been
run down by a northbound 3d-ave. car. The
! child was not serlously injured. suffering only
from contusions of the face and left arm. in
? spite of the fact that the rapidly moving car
struck her full force and rolled her over ln
the street. When finally it was stopped the
. aby was beneath the axle of the forward truck.
The child, wlth an older sister, was walking
i ui the avenue. and at the time was crossing
3*J"?th-st. She failed to see the car, which was
heavily loaded and moving swiftly. The motor?
man. B. Mahoney, of No. 3_X> East 101st-st.,
made frantic efforts to stop the car, and rang
his pong, bul the accident was inevitable.
The Btreet was crowd-d. Women screamed
with horror, and several fainted. Quickly a
crowd gathered, and. looking beneath the car,
the motorman found the child was pinned under
the axle. She lay still and was apparentlydead.
Pollceman Stockhouse, of the West 125th-st.
. station summoned an ambulance, and then
cailed for volunteers to aid in an effort to raise
the car. Several hundred men sprang forward,
and by theSr united efforts ralsed the front of
the car from the track. With the car thus held
up Mahoney crawled under the front end and
drew forth the baby, who was unconscious and
seemed to be dead.
As the child lay on the walk, whither it had
been carried by Mahoney, Mrs. Kenny burst
through the crowd and fell on her knees beslde
the little bodv, weeplng and moaning. She re
: fused to be comforted. and when Dr. Burton,
who arrived on the ambulance, said that her
daughter wa_ uninjured, except for several un
lmportant brulses. .?~he refused to beiieve hlm.
1 The child was taken to the J. Hood Wright Hos?
pital where Dr. Burton's diagnosis was con
nrme'd, while the mother was led moaning to her
home. There was no arrest.

the neighbors claim, so astonishhed that he could
not keep the news to himself. He told the

He hurried Into an adjoining room, opened it,
and BoUed bills of all denominations fell from it.
Tuohv would not say last night what he did
with the money other than that it was ln safe

with pride to a few more. "I announce to all

dreamed before the catastrophe occurred of the

other marvellous dreams I have had that cannot
be hooted at as the results of imaglnation or

that he is not as crasry as our government to

view to remedying any evils found to exlst The

As a result of the inquiry, orders hava been
issued to the diplomatic and consular represen?
tatlves of the United States ln China by the
President himself that they must look closely
to the perforrnance of thelr duties under the
excluslon law and see that members of the ex?
empt class coming to this country have proper
certlflcates. These certiflcate9 wlll be accepted
at any port of the United States and wlU insure

THE PRESIDENT'S ORDERS,
The correspondence and orders on tha BubJeeS
were made public to-day by authority of Presl?
dent Roosevelt. The President's orders to tha
diplomatic and consular officers of thla country
ln China were transmltted through tha State
Department, and are as follows:
The Whlte House,
Washlngton, Juna 24, 1905.
To the Acting Secretary ot State:
The State Department wlll immediately issue
a circular to all our diplomatic-and consular rep?
resentatlves in China setting forth the following
facts and statlng that lt ls issued by direct or?
der of the President:
Under the laws of the United States and la
accordance with the spirit of tho treaties negoti
ated between the Unlted States and China, all
Chinese of the cooly or laboring class?that ls,
all Chinese laborers, skllled or unskllled?are
absolutely prohibited from coming: to the Unitetlj
Sta*e.., but the purpose of the government of
the Unlted States ls to show tha wideat and
heartlest courte.-- toward all merchants, t<_aoh-,
ers. students and travellers who may come to
the Unlted States, as well as toward all Chlnese
offlcials or representatlves ln any capacity of
the Chinese government. All Indlviduals of
these classes are allowed to come and go of
their own free will and accord, and are zo b~?
given all the rights. privileges, lmmunities ani
exemptions accorded the cltlzens and subjects
of the most favored nation. The President has
issued special Instructions through the Secre-i
tary of Commerce and Labor that, while laborers
must be strlctly excluded, the law must be en?
forced without harshness, and that all unneces
sary inconvenience and annoyance toward those
persons entitled to enter the United States must,
be scrupulously avolded. The offlcials of the^
Immigration Department have been told tbat nos
harshness ln the administratlon of the law wlU
for a moment be tolerated, and that any dis-.
courtesy shown to Chinese persons by any ofS
clal of the government wlll be cause for immedi?
ate dismissal from the service.
The status of thoso Chinese entitled freely*
to enter the Unlted States is primarily deter-.
mined bv the certlflcate provided for undeif
Section ti of the Act of July 5, 1S84. "Undei^
thls law the diplomatic and consular repre?
sentatlves of the Unlted States have by dlrec-<i
tion of the President been instructed befor__

the requlrements of that portlon of Section t_f
which provldes as follows:
And such diplomatic representatlve or cor.-*
sular representatlve whose lndorsement is
so required is hereby empowered, and lt shall
be his duty before indorsiug such certlflcates as

statements set forth in said certlflcates, and !$
he shall flnd upon examinatlon that said or any
of the statements thereln contained are untruey
it shall be his duty to refuse to lndorse the*
MUST RECOGNIZE CERTIFICATES.
The certlflcate thus vised becomes prima facie
evidence of the facts set forth thereln. The Im?
migration offlciels h?ve now been specflcally br*.
structed to accept this certlflcate, whlob. ls not
to be upset unless good reason can bo ehowa
for so doing. Unfortunately, in the past lt ha4
been found that offlcials ln the Chinese govern?
ment have recklessly issued thousands of such
certlflcates which were not true; and reckless-s
ness has also been shown in the past by repre?
sentatlves of the American consular servlcel tn
vlseing these certificates. The purpose of t; *
government is to make these vlsed certiAoatea
of such real value that it is safe to accept thera
here ln the Unlted States. Thls wlll result tn
doing away wlth most of the causes of com?
plaint that have arisen. The Chinese student.'
merchant or traveller wlll thereby secure before
leavlng China a certifleate which will guarantee
hlm against any improper treatment.
But ln order that thls plan may be carm_r.
