the Gerrymander A Reciprocity
Scheme in Chinese Immigration.
Washington, May 16. Senator Gor
man's declaration in the senate Friday in
debate on the naval bill that the limit of
appropriations fixed by the Fifty-first con
gress could not be restricted to any ap
preciable extent by this congress, has ar
roused renewed interest as to the probable
amount that will be carried by the appro
priation bills of the present session. It is
conceded that the sum will be in excess of
the total of the appropriations of the
Fifty-first congress at the first session; but
the Democratic house leaders argue that
the Fifty -second congress is favorably
situated for making an economical record,
inasmuch as its heaviest appropriations
must be made at the first session, with the
lighter ones devolving upon the second
session. The reverse of this has been true
for many years past.
Comparative Totals so Far.
As to the comparativ- totals of the ap
propriations at tbis se sion and the first
session of the Fifty-first congress, the fol
lowing table will be of interest. It shows
the aggregate of the eight appropriation
bills which have passed the house, as com
pared with the amounts of the same bills
as they passed the house (not as they
finally became laws) in the first session
of the last congress:

There are three bills now on the house
calendar the sundry civil, postoffice and
fortifications. There yet remain to be re
ported the legislative, general deficiency
and agricultural. The first named will
be reported to the house Friday or Satur
day of this week. It will be ready for the
action of the full committee on appropria
tions Wednesday or Thursday. The agri
cultural bill will come from the agricul
tural committee and probably will not
carry a total any less than that of the bill
of last year. So that the general deficincy
bill is the only appropriation measure
(aside from the sundry civil) yet remain
ing for action upon which "the majority
can make important reductions as com
pared with the appropriations of the cor
responding session of the Fifty-first con
gress. RECIPROCITY IN IMMIGRATION.
Dr. MacGowan's Advice to the State
Washisgtos, May 16. A letter ad
dressed by Dr. D. J. MacGown, for many
years an American missionary in China,
to Secretary Blaine, through the United
States consul general at Shanghai and the
United States legation at Pekin, dated
March 81, is as follows:
"Sin Lest it be considered presumptu
ous in me, a private citizen in China, to
address the chief of the department of
state on the subject of Chinese immigra
tion, I plead in extenuation that in re
spect of age, and in respect of period of
residence, I am the senior American resi
dent in China.
The Way China Looks at It.
"So far as I am capable of understand
ing the view which China takes to the
situation she does not desire to see the
United States flooded with her people.
Certainly she has little reason of desire
Buch a consummation, inasmuch as this
empire already possesses vast regions in
the north of fertile virgin soil, while in
the tropics illimitable regions invite im
migration from her souther provinces.
Hakes Ah Sin Too Muchee Independent.
"Chinamen who return from a few years
residence in the United States are less
easily controled by the mandarinali than
those who have never been exposed to the
operatiou of revolutionary ideas. What
China has a right to demand, and what
our country is bound to concede, is to be
treated as an equal. Self resnect, the duty
she owes to her people and the position
which Bhe desires . to maintain among
civilized states, impose on her the necessi
ty of contesting for reciprocial conces
sions. Count 'Em on Both Sides.
"In view of these considerations it seems
that the unsatisfactory and anomalous re
strictions which now exist might be cor
rected by an immigration reciprocity
treaty fixing the number of the citizens of
each state to be admitted to reside in the
other. Indubitable difficulties will attend
the solution of the imbroglio on these
lines, bat the statesmanship of the two
countries is not likely to find them insur
mountable. A modus vivendi can surely
be devised on some basis of this kind."
THEY WANTED ECONOMY, .
And Didn't Like the Idea of Showing
Bow They "Got There."
Washington, May 16. The third and
last edition of the congressional directory
of the first session of the Fifty-second con
gress baa been issued under the editorship
of W. H. Michael, clerk of the printing
record. The directory has maps of states
showing the boundaries of each congres
sional district. There was much opposi
tion by congressmen to the insertion of
the alleged extraneous matter on the
ground that it lumbered up the volume
and was not in line with economy.
Gerrymanders Are Aot STetxy.
Members who sustained Mr. Michael's
Idea of inserting this statistical matter
contended that the men who made objec
tion did so because they did not want it
known how their states had been gerry
mandered. Mr. Michael, however, con
eluded that he was Justified la introducing
statistical matter in ms voiuuie, auu oe

sion, had a conference with Director of
the Mint Leach at the treasury depart
ment Saturday as to the issue of $10,000,

souvenirs of the World's fair. They sug
gested that the $3,000,000 asked of congress

scignorage would be $1,500,000. The mat
ter will be further discussed with Secre

QUICK VICTORY FOR STRI KERS.
A Street Car System Tied l"p for Five-and-a-Balf
Cleveland, May 16. The shortest
street car strike on record, considering the
number of men involved and the immenst
amo unt of traffic tied up, occurred here yes
terday. Promptly at 6 o'clock yesterday
morning, the motormen and conductors
on the East Cleveland street railroad line
went out. This railroad controls the
traffic of nearly the entire eastern half oi
the city, and the men who have been
working from 11 to 12J hour, atl6 3-
cents per hour for motormen and 16 centi
for conductors demanded $2.00- per day of
ten hours for both classes of workmen.
Would't Let a Car Go Out.
The men collected at the barns, and
there the president and vice president ot
the company attempted to start a car
down town. When the vice president
turned the current on a car a strikei
pulled downed the trolley and stopped the
motor. President Everett then tried it,
but found that the "plug'' had been
pulled from the motor. After these fail
ures the officials consulted and decided
to meet the men. Concessions were made
on both sides, and in just five and one
hours the strike was over. The motor
men were granted 18 cents per hour for
ten hours' work, and the conductors 17
cents per hour. For overtime motormen
get 20 cents per hour and conductors It
