ote of the Kanm Inquiry Claim of a
WAMiiNivrov, April Si The status ci
the Chine-e exclusion law was the subject
ofadebate iti the senate yesterday, in which
the Geary bill which p.-issod the house
some days ago cnnie in for some decided
fcostility on loth sides of the chamber.
The Geary bill was taken up on motion of
Dolph. The bill had been amended by
the senate committee so as to continue
In force the present restriction laws f.r
ten years. The Geary bill was passed in
the house with a rush without discussion
and has been denounce! 1 by many con
gressmen as an outrageous violation of
Iolph Want. Karljr Action.
Dolph insisted upon some immediate
action on this question. He had read in
the Xew York papers that there were 2,000
Chinese in Vancouver ready to cross into
the United States after the 6th of May,
and thnt they had engaged eminent conn
Bel to defend their rights. He said he dif
fered from the chairman of the committee
on foreign relations (Sherman) that no
further legislation was needed Wore the
6th of May next because existing laws
Continued iu force until He believed
It was atisolutely necessary to at least
iwss & hill continuing existing laws as
proposed in the bill introduced by him
and now ending as an amendment to the
Hoar Suggests a Time Saver.
Hoar asked why was it profitable to en
ter upon a protracted discussion of the
question at this time A-simple resolu
tion that the provision of the act of ivy
should lie co tinued in force nntil some
time in 1SI4. it seemed to him, would re
lieve all doubt as to the construction of
existing laws, and such a resolution could
be passed in five minutes.
Mitchell Better pass the house bill.
Hour replied thatag.MHl deal could be
aid against the house bill, and Sherman
proceeded to prove that Hoar was right by
opposing Geary's measure very vigor
ously. Calls It a Itarharnns Decree.
Sherman then took the floor, and stated
kis objections to the bill. He said that a
bill which prohibited 4i,(Nt,noo of people
from landing o:i our shores for any purpose
under penaltv of Iieing sent to prison for
five years was little more than a barbar
ous decree, only to lie justified by circum
stances which did not now exist. The pas
sage of such an act won 11 inevitably break
off diplomatic relations with China, and
what would liecome of our commerce with
that country? We should once more be
compelled to obtain our tea and other Chi
nese products through British ports, and
Vancouver might soon rival San Francisco;
and what would lieconie of the thousands
of American citizens in China?
. "l iijust, Vnmanly and Un-Auierlrau."
These considerations should cause sena
tors to pause a little before they entered a
maelstrom, the effect of which might pass
all their comprehension. AVhen congress
was urged to repeal a treaty the reasous
must be Rpparent, or the general judg
ment of all the nations of the world would
denounce the United States for its action.
It would be unjust, unmanly and un
American for us to violate and break
down our treaties with China, without
stronger reasons than we had today. He
presented figures showing the result tif the
exclusion law (passed in 18s:!). Custom
house records showed that since its pas
sage there were 32,000 more departures of
Chinese from our ports than arrivals.
Effect on Chiueae Merchant.
Hundreds of wealthy Chinese merchants,
representing firms here, have gone to
Ch ina and other countries on business un
der faith of existing laws, having prop
erty interests here valued at hundreds of
thousands of dollars. The Geary bill
would debar them from returning ami
virtually confiscate their property. Much
had been said about thousands of Chinese
crossing the boundary from Canada. Col
lectors of British Columbia report for lW,
8,275 arrivals at British Columbian poVts
and 2,2i . departures for China.
Ilutler. I'eraonal Opinion.
Wilson of Iowa strongly condemned the
Geary bill, and argued against its passage
by the senate, aud Butler of South Caro
lina followed on the same side, reading the
treaty stipulations with China, which he
contended the (Jeary bill violated. He
added his personal opinion that the passage
of the Scott exclusion act was a disgrace
to our civilization.

some marvelous French fashion, ' and
the deep bordering at the foot was merely
a slight frosting of green crystals and tin
sel embroidery. The long train was quite
plain, falling in graceful folds. The
corsage was decollete, with half long
sleeves elaborately festooned with yellow
chiffon, green ribbons and large and small
emerald and diamond pins set ulternately
from side to side. Her jewels Included a
necklace of emeralds of great size, to
which was attached a pendant. Her coif
fure was dressed with an ornament of
emeralds, each oue of which was the size
of a pii;eou's egg.

ceremony the couple were congratulated,
