The President lias signed the Chinese restriction hill. Since it is a fact that the bill was an Administration measure, it is difficult to see how he could have done otherwise than he has. That it will cut any especial figure in the campaign so far as to assist Mr. Cleveland to re-election, or to lessen the probabilities of the election of Harrison and Morton, which is now as nearly an assured fact as well as can be before the the poll:, are closed, we do not believe. On this coast there is no division of opinion among parties as to the need for such a measure as that just approved. The present bill, while originating with the Democratic House, was passed by tlie Republican Senate, and when Democratic Senators sought to reconsider the action ot that body, Republican strength prevented them from doing so. While there is gen eral rejoicing upon this coast that the bill has become a law, there is also surprise that the President should advise Congress to appropriate $270,000 to be paid over to China as salve for supposed hurt she lias received by rwsou of injuries Chinese in this country may have suffered it the hands of some of the people. The logic of payi. I i China the sum pi ivitleil tor la the treaty she has refused to ratify is not ■;iv!erstandable, and will not meet with (he approval of this coast. If any claims for indemnity are made, tliey would pre fer that they should be specified and proved, and the facts ascertained in each case. They have a moral conviction that if the sum recommended is paid over, not one cent of it will ever reach any Chinese who may have been tbe victims of injustice in the I'nited States. As it is probable, or at least to be hoped that this Scott bill is the culmination of the Chinese question, it may be profita ble to glance at the history of past anti- Chinese and pro-Chinese legislation. In January, 1852, Governor McDougal, Democrat, advised this State in his annual message to adopt a policy, in the disposal of tale lands, that would promote the im migration of Chinese laborers. He went further and extolled the worth and dwelt upon the desirability of the new immi gration. In tbe Legislature of California in 1852 a bill to legalize contracts for labor made in <hina was introduced by Mr. Peachy, Kttd supported by him, Mr. Roach, Judge Hager and all the leading Democrats in the two Houses. Not long after that the Democratic majority in the Legislature refused to pass a bill specially taxing Chinese. Judge Hager, when in the Legislature, introduced a resolution, that passed, to send a Commission to China to promote commercial relations. In the year 1852, al.- , a Whig introduced a bill in the Leg islature to place a head tax upon Chinese, and the Democratic majority tabled tbe proposition. In 1856 the Democratic Legislature ap pointed a committee on tbe Chinese ques tion which reported that "the Chinese have done us no harm." In 1859 John B. AVeiier, a Democrat, and Governor of Cali fornia, expressed to the Slate gratification that China had "been duly subjected to the law of nations," beeaoaeof the ratifi cation of the Reed treaty negotiated by the Democratic Administration of Presi dent Buchanan. In 1862 Governor Stanford, the first R:pubiiean Governor of California, in bis tir.st message urged the prohibition of Chinese immigration. W. EL Sears, a Re publican in that Legislature, offered a bill to protect white lalxir, but a bill to levy a miners' tax took its place, and the Sapreme Court declared it unconstitu tional. A later bill to levy a lax on all Chinese in tbe State was voted down by .the Democratic majority. When the Ptirlingame treaty was ne gotiated, and Mr. Burlingaiue and the Chinese Embassy passed through San Francisco, Governor Haight, Judge Hager, General Rosecrans, and other distin gui-bed Democrats attended a banquet in their honor, where the treaty and the Embassy were extolled, and Mr. Ilur ligame congratulated. In 1869 the Demo cratic Legislature refused to attach a con dition to a grant of tide lands, that the beneficiary should not employ Chinese. As early as 1801 a Massachusetts Repob lican. Mr. Elliott, introduced a billinCon gre-s to prohibit the importation of coolies. The bill passed, and was signed by Presi de:.'. Lincoln. Senator .Stunner, Henry aYiison, Senator Stewart and Mr. Sugenl, all Republicans, thereafter introduced !>ill and resolutions striking at coolie importa tion and contracts for servile labor. In 1871 Mr. Coghlan, Republican, offered a measure in Congress to prohibit the im portation of ''Chinese coolies and prosti tutes." It became a law, Congre.-vs in l>otb branches being then Republican. In 187 A came the Page bill, and (be same year and the tiext President Grant urged upon Con gress the passage of laws to prevent tbe bringing in of Chinese coolies. In Janu ary, 1874, Representative Page, of Califor nia, Republican, proposed in the House the abrogation of the Curlingame treaty, in tbe same month came Senator Sargent's bill, forbidding naturalization of Chinese, and a resolution to modify tbe Burliogaroe treaty. In 1878 he secured tbe passage of a resolution looking to negotiations for modification of the treaty, so as to exclude Chinese immigiants. ISoth lie and Mr. Pane had already, in 1876, offered bills to eh« k the Chinese influx. in 1878 Representative Davis, of Cali fornia, Republican, proposed bis ten-pas sen_-. :■ 77.1. Two year- before, under the actii rrf Senator Sargent, Congress sent a Commission to this coast to examine into the Chinese question. In 1879 the Legis lature of California memorialized Congre.-.--, t iiu Democratic, to grant the State tbe right to tax Chinese immigrant*, but Con gress took no action upon the petition. The fifteen-passenger Act of Senator Sar gent was passed in 1879. President Hayes vetoed it because it contravened the exist ing or Burlingame treaty. Therefore, in 1880, Congress authorized and President Hayes appointed three Republicans—An gell, Swift and Trescott—to proceed to China and negotiate a treaty upon which restrictive legislation might be based, and that was done. In 1882 came the Miller (Republican) twenty-year exclusion bill, which Presi dent Arthur vetoed because of the length of the term. Mr. Page then proposed the ten-year clause, and the bill passed and was approved by President Arthur. The legislation since then is too familiar to the public to need recapitulation. It was more or less defective under interpreta tions of the Courts, the fraudulent certifi cate and " prior residence" obstacles be ing found to be almost insurmountable. One of the best and most forcible measures was a bill intr-.xluced in 1886 in the Senate by Mr. Fair and iv the House by Mr. Mor row. It came from the Committee on Foreign Relations with the approval of every member, General Harrison being au active member of the committee, passed without a division, and being sent to the Hou»e was smothered in committee by Mr. Belmont, Democrat. The people are to lie congratulated that the influence of a Presidential campaign upon the aspirations of a Democratic can didate has borne good fruit in the declara tion embodied iv the Scott bill that the United States lias the right and will exer cise it, to exclude from her territory whomsoever the people, in their legislative capacity, declare to be non-assimilative, cr whose residence in the country is inimical t'j the best interests of the nation. HARRISON AND MORTON. Hon. W. *»V. Williams of Indiana at tbe Cluulo Opera House. The annouueementthat Hon. W. W. Williams, au ex-member ol Congress aud a warm, per sonal friend of Benjamin Harrison, was to speak at ths Clunie Opera House last evening attracted a large audience. Before the meetiug the Hussar Band played patriotic airs in froui of tbe theater, and near]; every seal in she theater was taken beiore the hour for the meet inn to be called to or ier. I*. E. Piatt, a member of thd Central Commit ' c, called the meeting to order and read the i...iv. .ii,' listof officers: President, Chris. Green; Vice-Presidents, Stephen Dwyer, H. J. Norton, Judge J. C. Tubbs, A. Logan, Jamas I. Felter, George M. Mott, S. Gottleib, M. Barber, Johu M. Milliken, W. R. Jones, Frank Ruhstaller, Matt. Flynn, Henry Longtou, Richmond Davis, J. t\ Richardson, Seth Garfield, i^aniel Flint, John Wall, Frank L. White. Charles F. Gardner, E. Franklin. F. X. Ebner, Charles A. Luhrs, Johu Rider, T. C. Pockmau, O. W. Erlewiue. Secre taries, Frank Hickman, H. I. Seymour. Governor Waterman occupied a seat upon the stage. A double quartet composed of members of the Harrison and Mortou Glee Club, sang "The Democratic Boat,"which was loudly applauded, and for au encore rendered "The Red, White aud Blue." On the chorus to the last verse they ptiiled from their coat pockets small silkeii American flags, which tliey waved while sing ing. This was a decided hit and brought down tlie house. Mr. Green introduced the speaker of the even ing, Mr. Williams. He is short of stature, stoutly built, almost 70 years of age, aud one of the ablest and most eloquent speakers on the stump to day. He spoke for upwards ot tvo hours, held his audience to the last, was humorous. pathetic aud eloquent, aud sometimes had his hearers convulsed with laughter, at otheis aroused to the highest pitch of enthusiasm. He said our prosperity wasbased upon two things: First, good markets aud good prices for our products ; sec ond, eoustant employment for labor and good wages. The first mau God made was a farmer. He had not so big a farm as the average Califor nia ranch, but he had sufficient land and all the fruits and flowers he required. Adam said, "I have an awful fine little farm," but he was quite lonesome. One morning he woke up and lour.d a beautiful woman in the gtouuds. She was lovely In form and stature, had a lily while complexion, and she pleased Adam very much. They weie extremely happy. She said to Adam, *■ Where you go I will go, where you rest there I will re;t also." They wandered about in the orange groves, inhaling the sweet perfumes of the japouicas. the heliotropes and tuberoses, listened to the murmuring of the laughing waters, the so:t t»\ itteringoi the gor geously plumed Uida. At last they came to a ticc with golden lruit. Beside It stood two sen tinels with drawn swords and sain protection. Now, Adam was a Democrat, he was a free trader, and, like the Democracy three years ago, he sighed for a change. He not it. The next day when the owner of the premises came armed and cried, "Adam, where art thou?" the place had been transformed, aud instead of fruits and flowers grew only thorns aud thisUes. Adam came out from his hiding and informed the I/ordthat he had gone into a little free trad.' business in apples and had lost all. If that little free trade business worked so much ruin then what untold di.-aster awaits the culmina tion, of the free trade doctrine advocated by the Democracy. He showed that as a matter of history Jefler sou, Washington. Madison and Jackson were all protectionists. If old "Hickory" could be called up lrom hi graie to-day he would disown the Df-moeratie party. The Democracy of to-day have gone back on al! the pr.iuiples of their fathers. Ke proved by statistics that the taritf did not add one cent to the cost of the livin _ of the laborer, but on the contrary, by eompetiUon goods of all kinds had become cheaper under the wise protective laws of the country that had been passed undcrth - l'eoublioan adminis tration. He st.oweii conclusively, Dy statistics, that of the S_ 0.000.n00 of revenue collected an nual y on imported goods, less thau Sluo.OOu is paid by the farmer, the mechanic and the labelling class. 8. Tariff is not a tax, H U simply a license which v.c charge for an import. He took up all the industries of the Cuion, and showed by statistics that under the guidance ol th^ Republican Administrations the cost of all articles had beeu reduced and that the American mechanic and laborer had the bene fit of the reduction end enjoyed much larger wages than the laboring classes of compel.ne oounirles. lie said the statement that Harrison said one dollar a day was enough for ,i laboring man was untrue. The Democrats also claimed that Har rison h»d voted fourteen limes lo admit Chi ue.'.e. ibis was untrue He never had cast one sue!: vote. When bills were presented in Conflict with treaties above and beyond the power of Congress, then it was a different proposition. Hariisou was square on tho Chi nese question. He read from a message ol Gov erno- John MoDcugsll, a Democrat, dated Jan uary 7,11-52, ill which he recommended granting the bottom river aud tule lands of thi- State to the Chinese, aud encouraging the immigration of this most desirable class. McDougali wa.- a Democrat. The Mills bill was to protect the South and touched only tho industries in those S ales which would give a solid electoral vote against Cleveland, cc closed by paying a high ti ibi'e to the Republican n miiiees, and asked every voter who lind the iutcre-t of his family at heart fo vote for protection to American in diistriei. THE DEMOCRATIC SIDE. Tlie 1> moemts Turn Out ia Force at lur ne i i Vi,. Turner Hall was ( rowded to its utmost capac ity la^t i.ight, the audience being composed largely of ladies. The spenkers of the evening were Ali^. Clara Shortruige-Foltz and Vernier Vuldo, two speakers who were announced as lateiy Ucpublicaiis but had come out In support of t':e Democratic candidates. Bonfiicaboned :it the street corners, the liussar Baud dis coursed patriotic airs in front of tlie hall, aad great enthusiasm prevailed among lim Deruj r: Lsovet the signing by the President of the ami Chinese bill. The speakers had au audkuce iv full sym pathy with them, nnd were liberal!*/ ap-.-.laudcd throughout the < utire evening. The meeting nas called io order by Thomas O' Neil, who introduced Senator Joseph Itout'er aa President of the aaeeting. Mr. R'.-utier si id th-1 he esteemed it an honor to preside at such a meeting on such a day-a r.cl-lciter day for California—tbe day oi -.v'uch a good and fear less I'resideut of the Cnlted States had sign-d ihe anti-Chiuc-se bill. He iutroduesd Mrs. Claia Sho:tridge-FolU as a lady «ho had formerly beeu a Republican, bu: who had seen the error of her wajs aud become a Di-mocrat. Mrs. FolUatld that she was present at the invitation of the Democratic Sta'eCentral Com mittee, with the understanding that she was not bound by uuy political lines she was a free lance in the political arena, and would not speak as a partisan but as an Amcrican-iorn Citizen, aud wtth no hope of reward. She spoke ot the signing of the anti-Chinese bill and brought ___> a storm of applause. Her atten tion v> as then turned briefly to the respective candidates for President, the said that Harrison was an aristocrat and belonged !o that class, while Cleveland belonged to the people. He had shown himself worthy to be trusted by his action on the Chineie question, and the people could trust him with tlie other important mat tcia to come before him during the next four years, and he would be t.usted by them. The speaker then took the main topic of her speech--the tariff— and argued at length in lavor of a revision of the tariil and a re lueiion of the surplus in the tr>*ury. She quoted froai utterances of Garfield. B_u__ aad Logan in favor of a revision of the tirill' Th-3 only qoestionin this campaign was which party ooold Ih' trusted hy the people. The Republican party had for fifteen years promise 1 teiorm that had not come, an i could no longer be trusted.

She drew similar comparisons on dozens of other articles, i ' The Mills bill was not perfection, but it was much better than the present law. It was a highly protective measure. The cry of free trade was a false one, and was maliciously put •'onli by ■•the uncrowned king" and other Re publican leaders. Figures would not lie, but liars will figure, and were doiug so in this cam paign. She said that not a mill would shut ( down or a hammer slop from the passage of the ; Mills bill. Too much money was being made by them. She paid a good deal of attention to "the uncrowned king," and said that by the blessing of God and the Democratic party 1 c would remain uncrowned. Andy Carnegie and the profits of his business also furnished a theme for comparison with the wages he paid his mm- • ers and employes. She discussed the tariff on lumber, salt, wool, iron, steel and everything else. In this fight the Democratic party was always on the side of the people. Wool was the last article in the world on which there should be a tax. The sheep aud wool industry would receive no in jury from tbe removal o"f the tariff. She believ • ed a large proportion of the Republican party ! was in accord with the President on the tariff ' question. The speaker thought if the sheep in dustry had to go it would not be an unmixed evil. The sheep men were destroying the for . ests and polluting the streams in the mountain counties. The speaker insisted that the Mills i bill would not effect the wages of labor except :to increase them. The law of supply and de . nidud governs the rate of wages. Protection , could not raise the wages of the laborer. There ; was no question of protection or free trade iv this campaign, it was simply a questiou cf a reasonable tariff and on exorbitant ore. She 1 wanted to ask that brilliant light of the Repnb : Mean party. Grove L.

It wis nearly ten o'clock when Mr. Vernier j Valdo was introduced by the President. G rover f'levaland had been elected iv IKS! because the people demanded a better government. He would be elected again in November. The people of the United States had be come tired of Republican attempts at legislation. The record of that party as to taxation and monopolies was a record of wrong, injustice and oppression. The speaker said that he had ouee been a Rtpubli cau himself, and had beeu a patriot since. When he was 14 yeirs old he ran away from home to take p.-rt in the crimson tragedy at Shiloh. That war had been fought once, and there was no occasion for fighting it over again. He was obliged to withdraw from the Republican party when it ceased to be the party of the people and became the party of the capitalist. He argued that the tariff was no longer to be borne by a free people. The Democratic party had pro posed only a moderate reform ol the tariff, and yet it was called free trade. The sneaker commended the President's mes sage on the fisheries question, and said that it did not look as if he was run by the Cobden Club. He paid a great deal of attention to tne speeches of Hon. \V. S. Williams, charging him with avoiding the real issues of the campaign. His argument was devoted almost entirely to the tariff question.
