"The church demands an American ized franchise as well as a naturalized franchise," said tho bishop. "The con tinuation or foreign languages and customs in this country is wrong and we are opposed to the teaching of for eign languages in our schools. We be lieve that the franchise should be more Jruurdcd and foreigners bo required to serve a longer apprenticeship to secure it We regard the legislation in con gress to exclude Chinese as inhuman, and recommend that petitions to con gress be prepared by this conference to not pass the measure."

Naught can lie done to prevent the law, but sotnethiny must be done to protect the Chinese In the United States and tho American nissionaries In China or there is liable to be lossof life.
