Speech of Hon, Frank Pixley on the
Chinese Question.
The following speech, recently delivered
in San Francisco By Hon. Frunk Pixley,
is fraught with suggestions of vital interest
to the people of trfis crtast:
Mr. Pixley said: I do not believe iu
the " universal brotherhood of tuan and
fatherhood of God." It takes a great
deal of faith to believe that all who claim
to be human were created by God for
men. Some of them might have been in
tended for apes and monkeys. Many
think it best to bring Chinese here, and
talk of the brotherhood of man and father
hood of God, and that the Chinese have
the saiue right as ourselves to coine here
and get a living. Those who talk of the
necessity of cheap labor ore not tho inen
who labor themselves ; they are those who
employ others, and want the cheapest.
Others say it is a question between the
Irish and Chinese, and they feel like the
woman whose husband was fighting with
the bear—theydou't care which whips,
liut I tell you it is not a question between
ihe Irish and the Chinese, nor between
the Germans and the Chinese. It is a
contest between tho idolatry of the old
world and tho Christianity of the new;
between the symbolism of Confucius and
the religion of Christ. Their further im
portation can be stopped. As it required
a great war to rid the country of slavery,
so do 1 believe if this encouragement of
Chinese emigration is continued, it will
bring ruin to the country. They will
pome over here in swarms. If, as Mr.
Casserly said, they are skillful, indus
trious. etc., then they are the more danger
ous. Hut lam opposed to them whether
superior or inferior. They are a different
race and color. We do not want to mix
with them. The types of the different
families arc as distinct now as they were
centuries ago, and they will bo kept dis
tinct. It is the same with tlie animals.
Their instinct keeps the different races of
animals distinct. The Chinese arc so un
like us in everything that the cannot come
unless they absorb or drive us out, or we
become a hybrid race. They number five
hundred millions, and they will come in
immense numbers and overwhelms us.
Hut the political question is the great one.
One hundred thousand Chinese immi
grants have come here in twenty years.
There is to-day 72.000 of them among us,
.VJ.OOO of which are males who would be
voters if they had the right of suffrage.
We have opposed them with hostile legis
lation, and iu various ways shown our op
position to their coining, yet they still
continue to increase among us. Cease
this opposition, subsidize the steamship
line that brings them and encourage their
coming, anil they will pour in upon us
like the locusts of Kgypt. This is no idle
fear. Strike down the barriers and bring
tliein here in competition, and they will
drive every white laborer from the coun
try. l<ook at the women in China. In
infancy they are destroyed if too numer
ous iu the family. As they grow up tlicj'
are sold into slavery, and live a degraded
life. <!o through the lanes of this city,
where they are congregated, if you dare,
and sec their degradation «\nd infamy.
Wo waut no such creatures here to poison
society. I was right the other night when
I said if there was no legal way to preveut
their being brought here to (ill our hos
pitals, ami to communicate loathsome dis
ease to others, 1 would he one to take a
torch in daylight and burn the steamers
at our wharves that brought them.
[Cheers.] Mr. I'ixley then read froui a
hook a description of the Chiucse and
their habits, customs, morals, religion,
government, etc., which was not very flat
tering to them, lie read it, ho said, to
show their social life. Ho then proceeded
to say : I'nder the inevitable strikiog out
of the word " white" frou» the Naturaliza
tion laws—and he believed it was Inevita
ble, for the Republican leaders were going
to do it—l cannot see why Chinamen inay
uot vote and strike down our system of
civilization and society, and . introduce
their own. 1 can sec no reasou why
Mongol and Tartars, might hot sit iu the
President's chair, and in the hails of legis
lation, and make laws for us. The indus
trial question is an important one in con
sidering this subject. We do not want
cheap labor. Cheap labor is a heresy.
[lmmense cheering.] No Government
ever flourished under cheap labor. Kvcry
country paying high prices for labor is
prosperous. For us to say we waut im
migration, and forui immigration societies
asking Europeans to ooiue here, and tell
them we pay high prices for labor, and
bid them leave their homes and coine to
the great Republic, where there arc homes
aud farms for them all; at the s%mo tine
we arc giving subsidies to steamship lines
to bring men hore who work for teu cents
a day—that is nut tho way to induce the
white race to come aud make their homes
among us. If you want cheap labor, give
increased subsidies to the steam lines, and
send to Asia for it. The much talk of
conflict between capital and labor, he
said, was a good deal of a myth. Capital
was useless without labor; labor must
starve without capital. If he bad a mil
lion ducats that very night, of what use
would they be to hiin without the laborer;
whereas, labor would at least support it
self by the fruits of the c.irih. #IH! in that
respect occupied a higher position, and
OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON TERRITORY, SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 18, 1870.
was more independent than capital. As
to the characteristics of the laborers com
ing in upon us. For 5,000 years they
have been in the habit of living on rice.
It had been and was now their staple food,
and they could do a good day's work upon
it alone. But tho white laborer must
have his meat or ho can't work. A
Chinese laborer's food need not cost him
more than seven to ten cents a day,
while a white laborer could not live
on less than seventeen or twenty cents, at
the lowest estimate. Even the food of the
convicts in the prisons, consisting solely
of bread and meat, costs twenty cents per
day. It was useless to think of white
laborers compctiug with Chinese. They
could not do it. He had known men
heartless enough to say : " Let them com
pete ; let them live on rice, then, if they
are not able to earn more." But they
could not doit; they woeld starve and die
if they attempted it. The Chinese had
been iu the habit of living upon the water,
crowded upon their river boats, and could
live like rats in a hole. The white labor
ers, with his respectable wife and his girl
of fourteen years of age, perhaps and his
boy, could not live cat and sleep in one
room, and the boy must have his separate
rooui, cr they could not consider them
selves, or bo considered moral and reli
gious. 'llie American inan must have his
three or four rooms, or lie docs not feel
respectable; whereas, the Chinese would
bunk fitly together in an apartment with a
brazier in the center, at which all the
cooking would be done—all this in & space
that would hardly be sufficient for four of
our citizens. Thero was a gentleman, a
friend of his, a cigar manufacturer it. this
city, who had over fifty Chinese bunking
together iu u loft over a stable which was
only largo enough for six horses, lie
would put it to property holders, how
many houses would the 1,5500 Chinamen,
who came iu on the previous day's steam
er, occupy ! Mow different it would have
been had 1,5500 white laborers marched
up our streets with, at least, their five
hundred virtuous wives, beside theui, and
their two hundred stalwart sons. They
would have established themselves in
offices in time, built or occupied house.'",
or taken farms ; while those 1,300 China
men that had arrived, were at that very
time reeking and festering iu their dirty
dens, and if they were capable of any
sense of thankfulness for the termination
of their voyage, were even then worship
ping their Josses. And, said lie, Ameri
cans meet all that comes, standing niid
seeing this plague of liee, or worse, come
upon them, eating up their substance, and
bringing thousands of men to the brink of
slavery. Within the last two years thirty
thousand laboring people had left this
State; they had gme away, and were not
coming back to compote with Chinamen,
which uieant only death, starvation, igno
miny and disgrace. Xo country ciuld
prosper unless its producers wore con
sumers also. But those Chinese had
brought enough rice and opium with theni
to keep their bellies full and heads drunk
lor a year to come. Thirteen hundred
whito men would produce something, and
would spend it in the country. Whereas
all the Chinese population did not give
employment to ten white men. Instead,
they stole the bread of 1,300 white labor
ers, whom they displaced from the labor
market of this State. That steamer on
Friday had brought 1,300 Chiuo.se. There
would soon be two steumcrs a month—that
would lie 2,<500 per mouth, 02,000 a year,
even while being opposed by adverse leg
islation and by public sentiment; but if
this barrier were broken down, there would
be SO,OOO next year, and 00,000 the year
after that, until they felt strong enough
to dofy Christian civilization, and bring
ovei; their hordes to overrun this land like
Titnour and his hosts. It was absurd to
talk of competing with them. Are the
Chinese stealing the labor? Now let
them consider, said he, whether the
Chinese were really stealing the labor, or,
iu other words, the bread from white men.
When he caiuc to this country first, in
1849, lie and the others went to the eastern
slopo of the Sierras and dug for gold;
some got it, others didu't. Well, when
ever they began to pay less than 84 or 85
a day, they were abandoned, and the
Chinese carue and took them, nod at this
day the Chinese formed the real popula
tion of the mining couuties of California.
In every county that he had kuowu, pov
erty was staved off by the wash-tub. Was
the husband helpless, or idle, or dissolute,
the Woman took in washing, aud supported
herself and family. The invasion of
Chinamen had deprived many a tabic of
the bread tbat might have been earned tit i
the wash-tub. How was it with cigars ?
A few years ago Germans made all the
cigars in San Francisco; to-day there was
not a German who rolled a cigarette.
Chinamen made them all. Mutches, slip
pers—all made by Chinamen. Woolen
factories, with Chinese almost in entire
control. Only a few days ago eight men
bad been discharged from one of these
factories. One of the uicu, with a wife
aud children wholly dependent on the 8-
a day which he got as wages offered to
take 81 50. "No," 81; "No," for they
had hired Chinamcu at eighty cents a
day.
. Hope-making was iu the hands of the
Chinose; doors, a.ishcs and frames they
Were begiuuing to uiaLe; tailoring the lar-
gest trade in this county, was filled up
with Chinese workmen; at boot and shoo
making thero were now 250 Chinese at
work in this city. There were the do
mestic servants; they manufactured the
fireworks; and it would not be long before
the sewing machine would be -in their
hands. There was no reason why they
should not set type for 15 cents per 1000
ems, as they are now set for sixty cents,
and he did not know that some of them
could not be found to edit papers as well as
some were edited now.
The speaker aaid that in the first place
the idea of the laboring classes at the
Rrcsont time was probably exaggerated,
iut yet hardly a day passed that he did
not have some poor man or woman stand
ing before pleading for work; not beg
ging, but only seeking for an opportunity
to earn some bread. He thought that
Government peculiarly unfortunate that
could not provide labor and pay for it.
It was the duty of the government to make
the most sweeping laws until every man
and every woman was provided with work,
and he said were he Caius Gracchus and
this Home, he would roform the laws even
up to the point, if it were necessary, of
making every rich man divide and divide
his property again and again until labor
sufficient for all had been provided. Some
thing must be done. He said the rich
and the well-off must help tho poor. It
was easy for uien rising from well-spread
tables to preach patience to starving wives
and children; but it was not so easy to
submit patiently to see the bread which
the little ones ought to have carried off
by a horde of barbarians. The speaker
referred to the absurdity of telling penui
less men to go into the country and farm ;
to the one-sided operation of the treaty
with China, which couutry held out no
inducements for us to go there, while ours
held out every inducement for the Chinese
to come and live here—a treaty which
ought to be rejected forthwith. In refer
ring to the remark of the Sacramento
llrportrr that he intended to run for office,
ho said ho was sorry he had ever demeaned
himself to run for office at all, ond that
ho ucvcr would again as long as he lived.
Good Singing.
Good singing is one of the very finest
social accomplishments. And a good bal
lad singer, of cither sex, is a most valua
ble addition to any circle. Ballad singing
is, however, not half so popular' as it
used to be, as it ought to be. We run to
opera and operatic airs, and the simple,
beautiful melodies so charming arc for the
time being forgotten. The very soul of
music abides in ballads, and that soul is
immortal. " Annie Laurie" can never
die. The " Last Rose of Summer" will
not fade from our memory over. Ballads,
rightly sung, reach the heart, aud thrill it
with a strango sweetness.
What, then, is good ballad singing?
It is, in fact, the highest type of vocal art.
Its essentials are a good voice, careful cul
ture, delicate sensibilities. Quick sympa
thies are a prominent characteristic of the
good ballad singer. Without the capacity
to feel whatever he expresses in melody,
the singer will fail miserably, although
gifted with the rarest of voices. To quote
from " Coltam's Advice to Young Sing
ers
" He should be able to impress his
hearers, and rivet their atteution, no mat
ter what his subject may be, if sad, then
must he use pathos and tender feeling; if
gay, he must himself be cheerful, joyous ;
and lively; if the strain be martial, he
must also be martial in look, word and ac
tion, full of fire aud brilliancy. He must
be able to declaim in a clear and masterly
style ; too much attention cannot be paid
to this; for if he merely sing in tune and
the words arc not heard, he but does that
which an instrument is capable of.
" The soul of the singer must rise with
every emergency ; and if he be clever, he
will sway the minds of his hearers as the
wind plays with the leaves. At one mo
ment his audieuce will bo roused to the
highest pitch of enthusiasm, the next may
sue them melted unto tears. But to
achieve this lie must lose sight of himself,
and for the time being become, as it were,
the individual whose feelings he endeavors
to portray; in short, he must feel and
speak from the heart; and unless he does
so, his labors are thrown away.
" What wonderful effects are created by
merely paying attention to light and shade,
or piuno and forte ! One person with a
capital voice shall sing a song without
paying attention to the above, and ere it
is finished, it becomes monotonous and
eveu painful to the ear. Another, with
not nearly so good an otgan, will use it
with judgment, one moment thrilling his
hearers with soft, plaintive utterings, and
nnou electrifying them with his stirring
denunciation. This, let it be remembered,
is the secret of our greatest singers ; thijro
must be life, si/ul and contrast. Having
a fine voice and Using these aids, he may
attain the highest position as a singer; but
without them he is poor indeed."

Miu Sarah Winnemucca.
Harper's Weekly contains a highly
poetical allusion to Sarah Winnomucca,
the interesting daughter of Mr. Winne
mucca, chief of the Piutes, whose gallant
exploits in stealing horses and cutting the
tongues out of defenceless emigrants, will
long bo remembered by the people of
Nevada and Southern Idaho with feelings
of just pride and admiration. Now this
noble aborigine's daughter, Sarah—no less
—is to come in for a share of the honors
which have been lavished so unsparingly
in days gone by upon her illustrious sire,
the old gentleman Winncmucca. Miss
Sarah, says Harper's Weekly, has " writ
ten (?) a very sagacious letter to Indian
Commissioner Parker," in which she has
eloquently portrayed the wrongs of her
race. What infernal noodles some of
these Eastern people are. If we are not
very much mistaken we had the pleasure
of seeing, sonic years ago, Miss Sarah ai
Camp McT)eruiot, NeVada. She and a
few other interesting relics of the "noble
red man" were being fatted at the iort
during tliat winter for the spring cam
paign against Idaho emigrants. The emi
gration having stopped for the season,
" there were no other worlds to conquer,"
so Sarah and her tribe were about to fare
badly, as the supply of dried scalps, grass
hoppers and lico had been exhausted.
Their condition excited the sympathy of
Uncle Sam's boys at the fort, so they were
taken in and cared for until spring, when
they resumed their favorite pastime of
stealing and murdering. Hut it is our
recollections of Miss Sarah wo propose to
recite. Sarah was at that time about
sweet sixteen or twenty—it would be dif
ficult to judge of her exact age from her ap
pearance, owing to a careless habit she had
acquired of never washing her beautifully
chiselled features. Hut as we had been
taught to judge the age of a cow by the
wrinkles ou her horns, or the age of a tree
by the belts of growth on its trunk, so we
made a slather at Miss Sarah's age by the
number of scales of greasy dirt which nat
urally accumulated on the ridge of her
comely countenance during the lapse of
years. She was about five feet high—how
is that for li Lo ?"—and not quite as broad
as she was uarrow. Her raven tresses,
which had been permitted to coy with the
sportive breeze, unbound,* unwashed and
uacombod, from her earliest childhood,
stood out in clegaut and awry confusion
from her clasically shaped cabesa, which
contributed to her contour an air of ro
mantio splendor. Her style of dress,
though primitive, closely assimilated that
worn by her more fashionable white sisters
iu Paris and other big towns. It was the
fashion of the day, slightly exaggerated,
consisting of an elegant scarf, about a foot
wide, cut from au ancient horse blanket,
which was gracefully girded round her
delicate waist, the circumfereuce of which,
owiug to the scarcity of clover and fresh
crickets at that season, had materially
diminished, over which hung a beautiful
set of skeleton hoops. These completed
the toggery of this sweet and simple
daughter of nature, licr feet were en
casod in moccasins, and showed evident
indications of hard service and long walks
over the rocky hills and sage brush plains,
the mud of her native heath, crisp and
dry, clinging tenaciously to her toes; and
we are glad to be able to state that this
divinity was treated during her brief so
journ among the white savages with all
the respect due her exalted rank and
birthright—as tho only daughter and
heiress of that noble old chief Winne
mucca. If Miss Sarah haa improved her
time as well since we saw licr as she evi
dently had previous to that date, we have
no hesitancy in pronouncing her at this
day a highly cultivated and refined young
lady, well qualified to write a " sagacious
letter to Commissioner Parker," or to
make a valuable contributor to Ilarper's
Weekly.—Boite. Newt.
From time to time accounts are
brought from India of the progress of the
famine which has been progressing In cer
tain districts for years. In 18C7, a mon
soon of unusual length flooded the -rice
country and rotted the crops. Since then
daring two years, not a drop of rain has
fallen. Wells and tanks arc! dried up,
grain does not germinate, herbage is
parched, and at least 900,000 deaths by
starvation and thirst have occurred in the
fjrovince of IlaipootanO. Neither the
British East Indian authorities nor the na
tive chiefs appear to be able to provide
measures of permanent relief, and the
wretched survivors of these disasters eke
out existence by sucking the top shoots of
certain tall trees, obtained with difficulty
by climbing. Four months are yet to
elapse before there is any probability of
another rainfall.

The Fox and the Land-Crab.
A young Lond-erab once erept otft of
his pond to make a little excursion in a
meadow, and see what w going on in tha
world. A Fox who happaned to be pass
ing at the moment, noticed the Crab as he
crept slowly along, and after having
wished hinytood morn'ng added, iti a mock
ing tono, are you going so sloWlv 1
When do yon hope to get to the other aide
of this field 1 It seems tn me that yon go
backwards instead of forward."
Now this was a clever young crab, who
had heard how sly foxes are, and he
thought there could be no harm in playing
this one a trick, so he answered, politely,
" I am only a Crab, it is true, and I.cati-'
not walk so gracefully as you, Mr. Fox,
but I can run much faster."
Mr. Fox, sneered, " Indeed."
" Well," said tho Crab, " as you appear
to doubt my speed, suppose we ran a facd
for a wager. Have you any objection f"
" Nothing could give me more pleasure)*
roturned the Fox, "shall we run fro*
Berne to Bale, or from Bremen to Bra
bant r
" Oh, no, that would take tip too much
time. I suggest we try half a mile, ot
say a mile, that will not be too much for
either of us."
"A mile! echoed the Fox, as if he
thought, " What is a mile to mo ? I can
rnn that, while the crab is getting ready
to start off."
This seemed to please Mr.- Fox, as he
answered i
" I will do exactly as you wish,"/turned
himself round and placed his bushy (ail
within reach of tho crab, who seized the
long hair tightly with his claws,
the fox perceiving that he had done aa t
and shouted at the same moment:
" Away!"
Off started Mr. Fox as if the hunters
were behind him, his feet scarce touching
the ground. As soon as he reached the
next mile stone, he turned round and
cried:
" Where are you, Mr. Crab; where art
you dawdling ?"
Now, as the Fax turned ronnd to look
for his companion his tail touched the
mile-stone, and the Crab, making the best
of his opportunity, let go liis hold, and
answered:
" Here lam waiting for you. I was
just wondering when you intended to

cause the lungs, being relieved of tho
pressure made by having the head down
ward and bending thtf chest in, admit tbe
