Fbiday. May 2# 18D3 OSPSPXeXJLXi OOTTSa-XTT PAPB1. Pdbuhicku Wbkkm bt tot CLARKSBURG TELEGRAM CO. gtuart y. Reed - - gditor 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 too 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 done 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.?Ltdgtr. Apparently there need bo no apprehension of serious trouble in either this country or China on account of the Geary law. There was reason to fear out breaks on the partof the Chirese against American residen'a in China in case the law had been put intoeffecthere with harshness. A conference held yesterday be tween Secretary Greshum and the Chinese Minister, however, seems to havo 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 excuse, for the present at least, for re sorting to violence. Attorney-General Olney, it ap pears, is prepared to act in be half ot the government in case anything is done by the World's Fair management to open the Exposition on Sunday. The right ot i he government to act in the promises 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 step 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 ConHsrntlon. As it becomes more and more apparent that tho 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 tho West and South advocate an income tax sufficient to supply any short age in the revenues under a re vised tariff. The St. Louis lie 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."
