Washington, May 17. At a cabinet
meeting with a full ntrenilHnc3 the Chi
nese question, as complicated by the deci
sion of the supreme court, was discussed
from every point of view, and it is under
stood that the conclusion reached -nsthat
the law could not be enforced for the rea

that purpose. The net only carries un ap
propriation of SKX1.C00. Secretary C i: lisle
showed tht ..M more than $33,000 of that
sum remained, with some bills still un
audited to be acted upon. It was estimated
that it would cit to deport all the China

This statement exhibited what one mem

the law without further nction by con

understood that nothing could 13 d ne

making any immediate effort to put t!i

short of a political scheme enacted for

about "demagogues"), and he iutimared
that there had been a general hope among
his associates that the court would Iklvc

DOINGS OF ILLINOIS SOLONS-
Over Four Months in Session and Hardly
a Dozen Hills Passed.
Springfield, May 17. The legislature
hits been in session going on five months
and but eight bills have reached the gov
ernor. As the latter has ordered an elec
tion June 10 to fill the vacancy caused by
the death of Representative Meyer, it looks
as though there would be no end to the
session at all. The governor sent to the
senate the nomination of Adolph Sturm to
lie labor commissioner vice Kichter, refused
to serve. The bill fixing a scale of fees for
incorporation of companies passed. The bill
fixing compensation of legislators at $1,OX
for regular and $5 per day for special ses
sions was reconsidered so as to recall and
amend, it being of doubtful constitutional
ity. The agreeing vote on a report unfa
vorable to a northern state normal school
was reconsidered, and the bill reinstated.
The house refused to return the bill fixing
salaries of legislators, and the foregoing
action on that bill was thereby vitiated. A
resolution for a road improvement commis
sion was referred. Ford's compulsory
school bill was made special order for

editorially regarding the decision of the
constitutii nality of the tl.-ary law in the
supreme court of the United States: "It
can only be regarded as a national misfor
tune that the views of tlie three minority
judges were not proclaimed as the judg
ment of the court. The law upheld is the
embodiment of a Chinaphohia as fanatical
as the old-time ravings of Denis Kearney
on the sand lots of San Francisco."

Houses Left Standing Revival of a
Gang That Was Thought Suppressed
Two Boys Found Poisoned.

ness house is standing. The burning was
an act of revenge for the imprisonment in

was the protection of its members from the
usurpation of land by the railroads and
new settlers, and it was thought to have
been overcome after years of strife and

that the boys met their death from poison
ing by strychnine, though by whom ad
ministered is a mystery.
