The Collector of Customs at Fort Ben

whether they are liable to duty. Assist
ant Secretary Tichenor replied that while
the increase in number of said animals,
which may naturally have occurred since
the arrival of the herd in the United
States, is not liable to duty, being of
domestic production, the animals which
strayed across the border are properly
subject to duty.

The Ticket Brokers Protest.
The National Ticket Broker's Associa
tion today presented to the House com
mittee on commerce a vigorous protest
against the passage of Baker's amend
ments to the Interstate Commerce act,
to prohibit the sale or transfer, by any

agents, of railway tickets. They hold
that the proposition would result in
higher railway rates to the public.
An Ocean Patrol.
Representative Turner today intro
duced a preamble and joint resolution
for the better protection of human life
on the Atlantic ocean. It calls attention
to the recent accident of the City
of Paris, and says the rivalry
between competing lines of steamships is
so keen that considerations of safety
and humanity are often lost sight of.
It holds that better protection to human
life and property can be afforded by a
system of ocean patrol than by any other
means. Such a system of ocean patrol
must necessarily be maintained by the
different nation's, and the resolution in
structs the President to communicate

AMENDMENTS TO THE CHINESE
Alterations Made, by the Senate Com

Pacific Coast—Agitation Among the
Celestials in New York.
Washington, April I.—At a meeting
of the Senate committee on census, the
House bill providing for the furnishing
of certificates to Chinese residents on
the Ist of June, 1890, by the enumer
ators of the census, with the view of
prohibiting the further immigration of
Chinese to the United States, was
As reported to the Senate, the bill, in
addition to the provisions heretofore
given, provides that Chinese children
born in the United States subsequent to
June 1, 1890, shall not be held to be
Chinese within the meaning of the act.
Another amendment makes the provi
sions of the act apply only to Chinese
who refuse to give the information re
quired by the census enumerators, and
who shall fail or refuse to obtain the
certificate of identification provided for.
By another amendment, Chinese mer
chants are exempted from the operations
of the act, provided they have certifi
cates required by the act of July 5,
An additional section enables a Chinese
resident who fails to obtain the required
certificate of identification, to prove by
competent testimony that he has a
right to one, which is his sole evidence
of being lawfully in the United States.
It is made a misdemeanor for a census
enumerator to wilfully neglect or refuse
to give the required certificate.
In its present shape the bill is wholly
unacceptable to the Pacific Coast.
A New York Celestlnl Makes An Appeal
to His Countrymen.
New York, April 1. —A big poster on
a bill-board, in front of 16 Mott street,
contains the following in Chinese char
"We, the undersigned committee, re
spectfully inform you that the principal
cause of our continued persecution by
the races who differ from us in civiliza
tion and language, is the fact that we
have no voting power, that power hav
ing been unjustly denied us by reason of
partisan legislation, through political
rascality. ,This unjust legislation against
us has been discovered by us recently to
be unconstitutional, and it is our sin
cere belief, also, that such unjust deal
ings with the Chinese do not represent
the true sentiments of the blue-blooded
Americans. We now desire our fellow
countrymen to unite with us in an
effort to present our many grievances
in a proper manner before the American
people. This is an important move
ment ; a movement that needs not only
good words, but good money to back it.
Let all those who wish to enter this
matter with heart and money report at
9 Dover street."
Wong Gong, the head of the committee
which signs the document, said to a re
porter: "I have been living here as an
American citizen sixteen years, and
lived like an alderman, too. When I
went to get my full naturalization papers
the other day, the officials at the court
laughed at me, and told me that had I
been born over again right here in New
York, if my parents were Chinese, I
could not become a citizen. I got mad,
and have been working hard ever since
to get vengeance. If all the Chinese
whose rights are denied them will join
me, we can obtain what we want."

MOST PERFECT MADE.

From the Professor of Chemistry, California
College of Pharmacy.
San Francisco, Jan. 24, 1889.
I have made a careful analysis of a sample of Dr.
Price's Cream Baking Powder purchased by me in open
market. The results of my analysis show that the Cream
of Tartar used in its manufacture is pure, and that it does
not contain any foreign substances, such as Alum, Am
monia, Lime or other impurities. I consider it to be
pure and wholesome, and in every way a superior article.
