It now becomes the duty of the
Executive to deport the Chinese
?who have not registered. Ac
cording to the last census returns
there were 107,475 Chinese in the
United States. Not more than
5.000 are registered and tens of
thousands of the others could not
comply with the terms of the law
if given an opportunity to do so.
Those on the Pacific Coast would
probably find it impossible to
secure the aid of a white witness
to their identification. Besides
the gross injustice dono to tens
of thousands of hard-working
Chinamen, we are likely to see
similar injustice dono by way of
retaliation to Americans now in
China. The nation will be more
than justified in severing all re
lations with the United States
and excluding all Americans from
the country.?Ledger.
Apparently there need bo no
apprehension of serious trouble
in either this country or Ohina
on account of the Geary law.
There was reason to fear out
breaks on the part of the Chirese
against American residen'a in
China in case the law had been
put intoeffecthere with harshness.
A conference held yesterday be
tween Secretory Gresham and
the Chinese Minister, however,
seems to have set at rest the
question of reprisals by the peo
ple of China toward American
missionaries and so forth.
Our own Government is disposed
to move slowly in the matter,
and the Chinese have no excuso.
for the present at least, for re
sorting.to violence. '
Attorney-General Olney, it ap- I
pears, is prepared to act in be
half ol the government in case
anything is done by the World's
Fair management to open the
Exposition on Sunday. The right
ol the government to act in the
premises is undoubted. The
question whether the Pair ought
to be opened on Sunday is a
totally different thing from the
question whether the managers
should open it on that day after
accepting 12,500,000 from tLe
national government on condi
tion that it should be closed on
Sundays. As honorable men,
managers should feel bound to
return that money before taking
the stop which a good many peo
ple in Chicago think ought to be
taken. The present controversy
is an unseemly one. and to drag
into courts would make it still
more so.
Proposed ConlUcutiou.
As it becomes more and more
apparent that the proposed re
vision of the tariff will not pro
duce sufficient revenue to run the
Government, those who are re
sponsible for the business are
beating about for some device to
supplement thp income. And
there are a good many indications
that that most odious of all the
war taxes, the "income tax," will
be resorted to. During the past
sixteen years the proposition of
an income tax was made five times
in one or the other branches of
Congress, and on each occasion
a majority of the Democratic
members voted in favor of it.
Two members of Mr. Cleve
land's present cabinet?Carlisle
and Harbert?were among those
voting in its favor. Leading
Democratic papers in the "West
and South advocate an income
tax sufficient to supply any short
age in the revenues under a re
vised tariff. The St. Louis He
public says: "Ten per cent or
even 5 per cent on the incomes
of such plutocrats as Andrew
Carnegie and William Waldorf
Astor will give gold enough and
to spare."
Here is a confession that free
trade, pure and simple, is to be
given the go-by, and confiscation
is to be resorted to as the only
possible relief by this party
afraid of its own platform. When
the income tax was resorted to
meet the extraordinary expenses
of the war these Democratic
financiers denounce it as "odious"
and "un-American." But now,
