HERE. IS THE LAW OF IT.
The Aotlonrof le Butte City Counoll Sustained by the Attorney General. Zqdne of the Treaty, Artioleg With the Chinese Have Been Violated. A Review of Legistation on the Subject and Proyvtions of the Ditrerent Treaties. Atto ney General Haskell has submitted a lengthy opinion to Gov. Rtickards in re. speat to the action of the Butte city council in requesting all city employee not to patronize Chinamon, as asked for by the Bilver Bow Trades and Labor assembly. The opinion is to the effect that the councni's action wae perfnotly proper. Thompson Campbell, of Butte, for the Six companies, asked Gov. Rickards to consider whether or not it did not militate against the treaty obligations of the United States with China, and the governor sent all the papers in the case to the attorney general. The questions submitted to the attorney general were: First, is the action of the Butte city council in contravention with any law of congress or any treaty, stipulation or obligation of the United States government with that of China and the subjects thereof iediding and being within the United States under said treaty? Second, does this cnae present such a state of facts, if true, as will warrant executive interference in the absence of any com plaint on the lart of the subjects of the Chinese government, who are residing within the jurisdiction of the state of Mon tana, or a demand for an inquiry by the department of state of the general govern ment? The first treaty of any noie that was entered into between the general gov ernment and China was one of poice, amity, and commerce, between the United States of America and the Ta Tsing empire, concluded at Wang Hiya on July 8, 1844 and ratified by the president Jan. 17, 1845, One of the conditions of the treaty was to the effect that "there shall be a pe:fect. permanent and universal peace, and a sin cere and cordial amity, between the United States of America on the one part, and the Ta Teitig empire on the other part, and be tween their people respectively, without ex ception of persons or places." 'Lo objeet of the treaty was to open to the citizens of the United States five Chinese ports and permit the citizens of the United States to proceed at pleasure with their vessels and merchandise to and from any foreign port to either of the five ports and from either of the five points to any other of them. At each of the five ports citizens of the United Etutes lawfully engaged, n com aere ,,vwere permitted to import fron theirno y other port into China,.and s41 hyre, and purchase therein and eipo arto. hiydr own or any other ports all meanner of ntsrphan dise of which the importation a exttation was not prohibited by the fisahy r).& for merlimitation of trade 0* *Orrdign'ph one to certain persons appointed at Canton y the government, and commonly called hong merchants, was thereby abolished and oiti zens of the United States engaged in the purchase or sale of imports or exports were by the articles of the treaty admitted to trade with any and all subjects of China without distinction, and were not to be subject to any new limitatione, or impeded in their business by monopolies or other in jurious restrictions. At the mlaces of an chorrge of the vessels of the United Mtates, merchants. seamen or otuores sojourning there might pams and raprise in the immedi ate neighborhood, but they could not at their pleasure inalte excursions into the country among the villnes at large, nor could they repair to publib maria for the purpose of disposing of goods unlawfully nd in frand of the revenue. All citizens of the United States in China, esceably attending to their affairs. were laced on a common footing of emity and ood will with sabjects of China, and were utitled to receive and enjoy for themselves, nd everything appertaining to them, the pedal protection of the local authoritiesof overnment, who were required to defend hem from all insult or injury of any sort n the part of the Chinese. If the citizens f the United Strtes had special occasion o address any communication to the Chi ese loal officer of government, they were equired to submit the same to their coun et or other officer to determine if the ian aage be proper and reenectful, and the utter just and right, in which event the ounsel would transmit the same to the ap ropriate authorities for their considers ion and action in the premises. And if ontroversies should arise between citizens f the United Strtes and subjects of Chinn, hich could not be nmicably settled other ise, the nnme should be examined and de ided conformably to justice and equity by he public officers of the two nations acting o coninnction. Itiwas etipulated that the provisions of the reaty should not be altered without grave euse, but inasmuch ns the circumstanoes f the several ports of China open to for ign commerce tire different, expeaience nv show that inconsiderable modillcations ie requisite in those parts which relate to ommurce and navigation; in whioh case he two covernmente will at the expiration t twelve years from the date of conven ion treat amicably concerning the same y the means of suitable persons arnointed o conduct the negotiation, In 1858, which as nearly thirteen years after the ratid ation of the first treaty with China and wring the administration of President uchanan, the two governments adopted ad renewed in ii manner clear and positive y means of a treaty or general convention f reace, amity and coutinete, the rules, bich were in future to be mutually ob ived in the intercouses of their respective notries. This treaty wae substituted for e treaty of 1844 so far n. the provisiona 'lated to identical subjects and had the ifect of opening additional ports to com eorce and permitted citizens of the United tates with their fatuilies to trade therein, ad to proceed at pleasure with their ves Is and meachandise from any of the ports any other of them. Prior to the ndop. on of this last unmed treaty the veessels f the United States had not been admitted trade freely with the ports of China on equal touting with the veseels of other untrie. but this treaty had the effeot to en to the United States all the ports of hina which were at that time open to for g n commerce. Following the rnle laid down in artiole 34 the a eoty of 1814, which provided that ditional a tioles might be made thereto ery twelve years, the United States and e Tn'l icing empire entered into articles ditional to the treaty of 1858 which were tifled by the president in 1`188, and which as known an the tiurlingume treat,. In s last named t enty the emperor of China as delegated with the right to appoint oceic at ports of the United Statoe. who onid enjoy the ente privileges aind im unities no those which art enjoyed by hbie law and treaty in the United States the consuls of Great Britain tond Russia. either of them. This treaty by its tiles recognizes the inherent and in cable right of man the change hisAtamq d alleginuce, and aleo the mutual dyatit ge of migration and Immigation of 0181 ns and subjects respectively from th'I one untry to the other-for the parpose of ade, or as pa m aont residents. It pro dad that citizens of the United States siting or iesiuing in China should enjoy e sanme privileges, imrunnit s o ezempp ns in respect to travel or residence as my there te enjored by the citizens or bjects of the most favored nation; and iprosally, Chinese subjects visiting or siding in the United States shall enjoy a same privileges, immunities and ex tions io respect to travel or idence as may there be enjoyed by the clitases or subjects of the most favored nation, but nothing therein contained should be held to confer naturalisation upon oltisns of the United States ip China, nor upon the subjects of China In the United States, It further provided that Chinese subjects shquld enjoy all tariv leges of the public educational inatsti$ qi under the control of he government, of, bp United States wh oh are enjoyed In' the arespective coun tries by the oltiosue or onbjeatp of the most favored unation; asd that Chinese enbjects 'maw freely establihb and. maintain schools within the United States at those pices whise foreigners are by treaty permitted to reside, Under the provigions of the treaty of 1888 as well as those of fo mer treaties, harries of Chinese laborers who were sub jects of the Ta Sing government took ad. vantage of their plenary conditions and literally poured into the United States, and not until protect after protest had gone up from the people against this influx of im migration, which endapgered the good order of certain localities within its boundaries, namely, the Pacftic coast staten and terri tories, did the government of the United States by its congress take legislative no tion thereon, and on May 0, 1882, passed what was called the Chinese ex oliqion act. The eot provided that the coming of Chinese laborers to the United States be and the sane is hereby one' ended after the passage of the not and until the expi ation of ten years next there after. The not further provided that no state court or court of the United States shall admit Chinese to citizenship. This act was intended to prevent and did have the force and elfect of preventing Chinese labo ors from immigratiti into the United States, and for its conetitutonality de t ended upon the feat that it was a police regulation, in this, that the coming of Chi nese laborers to this country endangered the good order of certain localities within the territory thereof. While this not ex empted from its provisions all Chinese Is borers who were in the United Statee on Nov. 17,1880, and as well those wLo came to the same before the' expiration of ninety days after the passage of the not, it was in itself, so far as the United States could speak through that body, a congressional declaration that the subjects of the Ta Taing empire and the Chinese are objec tionable to the people of the United State. The people of the United f tates spoke through congress which was their sovereign power, and declared in plain and unmis takable language "that Chinese chean labor which had taken or obtained so firm a root in American soil should be unrooted and transplanted into the soil of its nativity." It was a declaration that the fittest shall survive, and a further declaration that their presence in this country was preju dicial to, and endangered the good order of certain localities within the territory thereof. The act of congress of 1882, and as amended by the act of 1884, was accepted and must be understood as ii proscription against the admission of Chinese subjects into the United btates by land or water, and any Chinese person found unlawfully within the United States shall be caused to be removed therefrom to the country whence he came at the cost of the United States after being brought before some jus tice or commissioner of a court of the United States, and found to be one not lawfully entitled to be or remain in the United States. 'I he fist step that was taken to p otect free white labor ngainet competition with Chinese coolie labor, and discoorage the immigration of Chinese into the United States, wirs taken by the miners of Cali fornia. in 1854 and in 1855 resulted in the passage of a law in that state which fixed the r ate of foreign namer's tax at *4 a month as to all foreigners "eligible to be come citizens of the United States," and as to all foreigners "ineligible to become citi zens of the United States," increased it $2 a month for every snuceasive year, ad in finitum. The agitation of this question which was so vital to the people continued, and their oprosition thereto was made manifest by further legielatlon ty the leg islature of California in 1858. by an act en titled "an act to prevent the further immi gration of Chinese, or mongolians, to this state." It made it unlawful after Oct. 1, 1858, for any person of the Chinese or Mon golian races to enter the state. The attorney general hode that the ion nicipality of Burtte', beinre a component part of thie stte of Moitrna and goterned by the existing laws of this state, has a no ordinate right with the state to enforce such rules and regulations which are not irron aiitent with the constitution and laws of the state, to protect auch utunicipelity from danger of patre:lem, drneer to health, danger to morals, danr:er to property or danger to religion. 1le erys the attorney for tire Chinese companies must concede that the Chinese are not bona fido residents in any sense of the word; they will not even perrmit their bones to have sepulture in American soil; that this request by the 'trades and Labor union of Butte. even if incorporated into a rule by the municipal ity of Butte, would not into. fere with the "possession" or "enjoyment" of property by the Chinese or prevent them from en gaging in trade in common with American citizens resident therein; that suech a rule does not confliet with the treaty obliga tions of the United Statea government with that of Chint and the subjects thereof re siding and being within the United States under ntriri Ceate. tant these two first prorositions are not mooted must be conceded from the fact that the customs and habits of the Chinese are each as negative the assumption that they are bona fide rosidents of this state, says the attorney gener 1; and too, that the laws of Montana permit foreigners to en gage in trade on an equal footing with the citizons thereof; and that this cannot be regarded in any sense as an inhibition upon the right of the Chinese to engage in trade. The treaties that have been entered into from time to time between the United States of America and the Ta Teina empire show nothing more than that they were in tended fo: the purposes of trade and com merce between the two countries and for maintaining permanent and universal teace between the people of these govern ments reeroctively. The so called Burlingame treaty is the only treaty In existence which purports to grant to the subjects of the Ta Acing em pire residing in the United States rights, privileges and immunities co-equal with those granted to the citizens of the United IStater. As to those privileges the treaty provides that Chinese subjects visiting or residing in the United States shall enjoy the same privileges, immunities and ex emptions in resfect to travel or residence as may there be enjoyed by the citizens or subjects of the moat favored nations. 'Ihis latter paratraph does not, as witl he per ceived, grant to subjects of the Chinese emephe residing in the United States the right to engage in trade or deal In lands and estates, and the holding of any chiee the cin is practically Inhibited by pro scription of the right of naturalization. To aesovrrate that citizens of the United States under the articles of either t eaty have the right to freely engnge ti trade in any part or portion of the is Tsing ampire except such as are stecifically enumir ated in the irticles would be to contend for that which is not therein written. All that is not therein delegated isexeluded therefrom. for that cach treaties are a limitation of rights rather than ii delegation of prerogn irves. Tihey carry with them the stamr, of eutocratic conceseints on the one hand end monarchical reservations rn the other.
