Whon ho askod for tho passport Commissioner Bhlolds said: "Ican'tglvo It to you. Undor Instructions from tho Btato Department no Chinaman Is entitled to a passport." Commissioner HhloUs then showed him a loiter, signed by Assistant Bceretary of Btato . Wharton. This lottor rcforrod to a request for a passport mailo by Torn Loo of Now York city , hut fall. , Leo wat naturnllred nbouttwenty year ago. and has been a deputy Hhorlff. llo wanted to so to China on nv Mb Ho madotbo customa ry roquost for a purport. In reply to this ro Quost Mr. Wharton wroto that tho Btato De partment could glvu no passport to Chinese. " By tho btututos ol Hio United btates," wroto Mr. Wharton, "it Is provided that passports J may bo Issued by tho Bceretary of Btato to clt- t Icons of thnUnltcdMiitusnnly.

W ho. iovoer. docs not seem willing to be content. Tho case has u much wider bearing than ap- Iienrs upon the surface. An examination of ho statute in uuestion will raise In tho mind of any porson two curious questions: Hrt vv ho may becomo a citizen o tho United Mates unit second, if ono not entitled to becomo a ritl7on should bo naturullzed. what is his Mantling WongChin Too puts tho second query In a very clearway. Haldhu: "1 havo severed my connection with China. I am therefore east . off by tho Chlncso Uoornmcnt. Tho Btato Department sujs I am not n citizen of this country. Then I am a man without u country. and I confess I don't llko to think of myself lu that desolato position."

Judge Bawyor hold that "white" In the statute moans "Caucasian." Thoro was a tlmo when ethnologists went ' about this thing, of dividing mankind into 1 racos in a vory offhand, go-easy way. borne of f theso early ethnologists said: "Oh. yes. to bo sure, thoro aro throe kinds ot human beings white, black, and vojlow." A few years inter they wero saving: Ivo. thero aro four white. ' yollow. black, and coITeo-cplored." A few ' years after that thoy doctded that this was not ; so sure after all. Thoro might be five, thero . might bo ton. thoro might bo two score moos. I Bomo ethnologists said: "Color of tho skin Is , the dooldlng thing." Others said: "No. hair . is tho thing." Othors said- "Wo hold for eyos." and stiU others: "Wo for shape uf head." Tho most careful and accurato division Is one which enumerates no less than thlrty- seven racos undor twoho species. Now, in , this division the species which comos the i nearest to including what wo think we mean L whon wo say "whlto men" Is the Medltor ;" rannan, which Includes four races Caucasians i" (natives of tho Caucasus), Basquos. bemltos. and Indo-Europenns. There is no species A which would Includo nil Africans. Tho native pooples of Africa are ol four species Hotten- $ tots, negroes, Kafllrs. and Nubians. All those, including twolvo races, muy bo Sf proporly called Africans, and they and :f, thou descendants would come under tho f . statute and aro ontltleil clearly to citizenship In tho United Btatos. Judges have held that f Mongolians uro not so entitled, butMongo l liana are a species Including but four races .Indo-Chinese. Coreo-Japanese. Altaians, and x i Urallaus. This leaves six spuelcs of human ''- beings, 1'opuans, Australians, Malayans, Are ties.

"As to the caso of this Chinaman who was naturalized, I should say that he Isavltiron of tho United btates ami t lint ho Is eutltld to a passport. When the eomt In Grand liaplds admitted him It interpreted the statute to mean that ho was a white person. And that interpretation will stand for him until tho Unltod btates Uo eminent innkus a special raso of It and goes into court and asks that that naturalisation be set aside. "In tho early Supremo t!ourt decisions there Is a caso which applies. It was then held that any person, naturalized whou ho should not Cavo boon, Is a cltlen until a spools! decision sotting that particular uaturullzatlou aside Is made, This Chinaman oould go into tho courts ot tho District of Columbia and got n mandamus, compelling the Stuto Department to issue to him a passport.

Although this precinct soems to bo tho city's dumping ground for foundlings, sho is tho llrst ono we have arrested In a year for that offence. It's such an easy thing, you see. to place u bundle containing a llttlo baby, in some dark, deserted spot without being (might at it. And aftor the person is onoo out of sight how can wo llnd out who ho or sho Is I " The reason that we havo so many of them here Is that tho Foundling Asjlum Is In this precinct. Women go thoro with newly born Infants, thinking that all that Is necessary Is to hand tho baby In at tho door aud then get away us quickly as thoy can. Hut overy woman finds that she must prove that she Is the mother of the child and thnt she resides in tills city. She must also bring a written statement from tho father, and then. If the house physician pronounced the child healthy. It is taken In. If tho woman is healthy thcy.nlwuvs ask her to remain there and nurse her child und another soung one. Now most of tho women who go there nro not prepared for ull theso formalities, and tho result Is thnt thev turn away from the door with their bundle ill their arms, and the temptation comes to them to pluco It In some deserted spot and run away, und ns they usually suc cumb to this temptation before thev are out of our precinct, the result Is that the infants ull Hud their way to this st.it ion houso." lA'KfSr A1IOUT THE Mil WJ.V.1.

Western Itnllroad Men Think Ho Will Make Things Lively With Ills Southern Route. Tho part of Mr. Gould's Intorvlew In which ho mentions a now lino to New Orleans in con nection with tho Missouri Pacific, has sot Western railroad mon to thinking. Tho com pletion of tho lino from Fort Smith to n juno tlon with tho Cotton Belt road will civ o tho Missouri Pacific a Bhort roiito to Now Orleans via the Cotton Belt and the Texas Pacific, both of which aro controlled by Mr. Gould. It Is probable thut this will be done within a few weeks. It is also thought that tho samo rates will ho adopted from Kansas points to Now Orleons that aro In forco from Kansas to Chicago. This will divert to the Soitthorn port n good deal ot the export grain trafflo thnt has heretofore gone East by way of Chicago, and will work considerable Injury to some of tho Chicago roads. The Hock Island will suffor most An ofllclnl of thut company suid yestor day: One thing Is certain. If Gould carries out this pliiu. und I have no doubt he vyill, thu ltoek Island will bo compelled to build to tido water. Wo havo beon moving In that direc tion slow ly for severnl years, but t his will forco us to bestir ourselves and get into Galvoston us soon us posslblo. Tho Missouri Pacific can make even a higher rato to New Orleans than wo make to Chicago and still get away with all the export business: for the ocoan rate ap plies from New Orleans, whllo Chloago ,1s nenrly 1,000 mllos from tldowntor. Already, Chicago Is bolng cut out as a gateway for east bound grain shipments, but I am Inclined to think tills now scheme of Jny Gould's will hurt it more than anything else." MORE FAST TRAVELLING.

Tho paper also contained an Interview with Mr. Stephens, who. gray, bent and weak, the mere shadow of his formof self, was takon 'immediately on Ills arrival to a cottago at Handy Mount whoro he will pnss tho remain der of his life In peace, ho says.it tho people will allow him. Patrick O'Brien. Dr. Kenny, nnd other members of Parliament, mostly Parnellltos. had already visited tho aged patriot beforo his arrival had becomo generally known. Slany bellovo that Parnoll will endeavor to use Btephonsln furtherance of his own political ends, though tho terms upon which tho cxtlo was permitted to return will not allow him any active share In politics. Dr. Konny and a num ber of of others havo issuod nn appeal for a subforlptlon of 500 forthe purpose uf buying BtephsnB n house. Htephens told a roportor thnt his former views In regard to Ireland's claims to separato nationality and the best way to arrivoat Inde pendence hod never undergone any change put he roeognlrod tho fnct that tho majority of his count r men had apparently decided to try the plan of constitutional agitation, nnd. ho added, thoro is no reason why I should pur suo n dog-in-the-manger policy. I admit that some local benellts have already resulted from that agitation." Mr. Stephens also declared that the Parnoll split hod mado It Imperative to ascertain the amount of home rulo or local government that England was prepared to give, and nlso what sacrlllco of tho nntional principle wns required In ordor to obtain concessions. Mr. Parnoll's ylpWB as to tho desirability of nn Independent Irish party were correct, Stephens thought. Personally ho had no faith In tho promises of British parties.
