ILAGEAITT. VIOLATION OF A TREATY
I. What the Chinese Minister Calls the
Measure, and Refers to American Con
gressmen for Proof Thereof Probable
Course of the Flowery Kingdom Feat
ures of the Debate on the River and
Harbor 11111 Carnth Pleads for Salt
River The President's Vote Official
WASHINGTON-, May 7. An emphatic pro
test by the Chinese minister has been Sled
already at the state department against
the Chinese exclusion act, which has just
become a law. The protest indeed was filed
at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon before
President Harrison had attached his sig
nature to the bill, in the hope that he
night veto it. It U probable, however,
that the Chinese minister, who has a pretty
thorough knowledge of American affairs,
bad little expectation that any protest
would override the political exigencies
which compelled the president to sign the
Quotes American Statesmen.
The protest goes over the history of
American legislation and the treaties by
Which China and the United States
have bound themselves, and declares this
particular bill to be the most flagrant and
direct violation of treaty stipulations
which baa ever passed con Kress. The
scathing denunciations of the measure
which were uttered on the floor of the two
bouses by Senator Sherman, Congressman
Eitt, and other opponents of the bill are
turned to good account in the protest as
deceptions of the real character of the
measure by American statesmen. There
is a fine vein of irony running through
some of these citations although it is care
fully veiled in diplomatic language.
Will Affect Our Missionaries.
The Chinese legation here has been in con
stant cable communication with the home
government during the consideration of
the bill in congress, and the Chinese gov
ernment has been promptly informed of
every step taken. There seems to be no
undue irritation felt in China over the
matter, but there is a disposition to make
It plain to the United States that the gov
ernment of China vievs the enactment of
the bill as a discourteous act hardly to
have been expected from a friendly na
tion. No radical steps of retaliation nre
contemplated, but it is not unlikely writ
the religious element of the community,
which has lieen most opposed to the bill,
will feel its first effects.
M ill Not Exclude Onr Traders.
There is no disposition on the part of
China to exclude American traders, for it
is clearly understood that they contribute
lai gel v t o the pros peri ty and ad vaneemen t of
the country. The Protestant missionaries,
however, are not looked upon with so much
favor, and the most enlightened Chinese
statesman would not consider that they
had suffered a serious loss if the mission- I
aries were deprived of existing privileges I
or expelled from the country. Those fa- J
miliar with the plans of rhe Chinese gov-j
ernment say that the missionaries will J
probably be deprived of authority to preach J

Harrison Figures Out 350 Delegates In
structed for Him.
Washington, May 7. All but sixteen
of the delegates to the Minneapolis con
vention have now been chosen, and on the
face of the returns President Harrison
will easily win a renomination four weeks
hence. A large number of ptvminent Re
publicans are still trying to form a combi
nation that will defeat the president, but j
as yet they cannot see their way clear to ,
success. The odds are decidedly against !
them, and in the president's favor. Illi-

Caruth then laconically inquired if the
survey could be made before the Novem

laughter. The amendment was over

witty appeals, an.l if the great defeated,
whoever he may be, or however numerous
benny present himself, finds the facili

Th Kentucky Statesman Wants Salt
Washington, May 7. There was little
Interesting in the house debate on the river
and harbor bill yesterday. One of the inci
dents worth noting was the jocular effort
of Caruth of Kentucky to obtain an appro

He wanted 3.000 for that classic rivnr. hn

ROME SPEAKS EIGHT TO THE POINT.
The Faribault, Minn., Plan of Turning
Over Parochial Institutions to State
Authorities, with Nuns as Teachers, not
Tolerated Except In Special Cases
Archbishop Corrlgan's Telegram and
Bis Views of Its Interpretation No
Mistaking Its Meaning-.
New York, May 7. Some time ago
Archbishop Ireland, of St. Paul, went to
Rome to see the Vatican authorities with
reference to the "Faribault system" as a
school policy. This system was the giv
ing up of the parochial schools to the state
school authorities and the employment of
nuns as teachers a system that was earn
estly opposed by the Protestant ministry,
by the way, because the nuns were re
tained. A dispatch was received here from
Rome stating that the pope had disap
proved of the system, but its authenticity
was denied. However, all doubt thereof
has been dispelled by Archbishop Corri-
What the Archbishop Says.
Archbishop Corriaa says he received the
dispatch himself. "It is true," said the
archbishop, "that I have received a cable
from Rome placing it beyond the possibil
ity of a doubt that what is known as the
Fairbault system habeen censured by the
pope. The cable reads: 'Fairbault system
condemned, special cases tolerated.' Xow,
of course, to know what special cases tol
erated' fully means we must wait until we
get official documents from Rome dealing
with the whole matter. There are un
doubtedly circumstances exininir in par
ticular Catholic districts which may war
rant an arrangement being made with the
local school anthorities somewhat similar
to that in force at Faribault.
Rome Has Spoken Plainly.
fcOn the broad question of the system
Itself, however, we cannot longer have any
misgiving. It is evident that Rome has
spoken. The cable come to me from a
source that cannot be questioned." Father
Jerce, the assistant provincial of the
Jesuits at St. Xavier's college, said: "It
settles the question at issue," waseen
FatherVTerce; "there will le no friction.
Archbishop Ireland will not persist in
carryingout his scheme in opposition to
the pronouncement of the pope.
Ireland Has Too Liberal Views.
When Archbishop Ireland recently went
to Rene, where he now is, it was widely
stat'.-d that he would be called to task for
what was called his "liberal views" on
the school question. The friends
of the archbishop ridiculed this
idea, and sent pamphlets broad
cast throughout the country advocating
the soundness of his position. But the
pope, it seems, has disapproved of Ire
land's "liberality" on the school question,
and except in "special cases," tlie "Far i
bault system"' is condemned.
