then taken up and Mr. Mitchell ad

"Washington, Jan. 14. Tito war cry
of tho Democratic leaders of tho house
was sounded by Mr. Holman and if
echoed by tho Democratic majority the
policy of tho party m tho coming session
will bo firmly established. It will be
a policy of opposition to all sub
sidies, bounties, land grants, pledg
ing public credit and concessions of nnj
kind and will bo broad enough to bo fa
tal alike to statesmanship subsidies, su
gar bounties and governmental promo
tion of tho Nicaragua scheme. Without
warning to the Republican side of the
house Chairman Holman of tho appro
priations committee presented resolu
tions declaring it to bo tho judgment oi
tho houso that granting subsidies oi
bounties by congross,monoy,publio landSj
bonds or by endorsement or pledge oi
public credit to promoto special private
industries of enterprises independent oi
tho constitutional power of congress un
just and impolitic and manifestly in
conilict with the spirit of republican in
stitutions. Tho resolution further re
bolves that in view of tho present condi
tion of tho treasury, and because effi
cient and honest government can onlj
bo assured by a frugal expenditure ol
public monoy, while unnecessary and
lavish expenditure under any and all
conditions leads inevitably to venal anil
corrupt motliods in public affairs, noj
money ought to bo appropriated by con- j
grexs irom in puuiic treasury except
such as is manifestly necessary to carrj
on the several departments frugally,
efficiently and honestly administered.
Considerable confusion succeeded tho

giving time for debato Mr. Holman de

Mr. Meyers, from the sugar state ol
Louisiana, moved the reference of the
resolution to tho committee on ways and

lost by a vote of 50 to 115.
Mr. Henderson of Iowa and various
othor gentlemen on tho Republican side
asked an opportunity for debate, and
Mr. McKcnna of California insisted that
tho resolution, if adopted and adhered
to by the houso, would result in tho de
feat of all appropriation bills of nnj
kind whntover, except such as referred
to departmental nffairs.
"Will debato bo in order after the
previous question is ordered on tho reso
lution?" inquired Mr. Henderson of Iowa.
"Tito speaker is of tho opinion that
debato will not bo in order," replied
Speaker Pro Tern McMillin.

Mr. Reed wanted two hours on hit

Mr. SimpMHi of Kansas asked if tint

and Democratic parties.
The siieaker said that he presumed tin

Mr. Brcckenridgo's suggestion was at
once received with favor by tho house
and the resolution went over until
tomorrow by unanimous consent.
Mr. Stone of Kentucky offered a reso
lution, which was agreed to, calling on
tho secretary of tho treasury for a tabu

PniLADnuiHA, Jan. 14. General
Master Workman Powderly issued an
address on tho Chineso immigration
question which is to be read in all dis
trict and local assemblies of tho Knights
of Labor. In tho address Mr. Powderly
said had not tho tide of immigration
been checked there would not bo a white
laborer at jvork west of tho Rocky moun
tains, while those east of that range
would bo retreating before tho barbaric
hordes who work almost for nothing.
In speaking of tho Chinese restriction
act, Mr. Powderly says;
On May 0, 1882 that act was signed by
President Arthur; it wont into effect
ninety days after ho signed it, and after
tho 0th day of next May it will have ex
pired and every barrier to tho immigra
tion and importation of Chineso cheap
labor will bo swept away. Wages re
duced to a level at which mankind can
not he maintained, the substitution of
the Mongol slave for the American free
man, the abandonment of the home foi
tho street nnd slum, tho prostitution oi
men and women, talents and bodies and
tho final overthrow of this republic are
among the possibilities if congress does
not re-enact that or a more stringent law
for the prohibition of this most servile
of all races.
Some of the most jiowerful influences
in this nation are now at work on con
gress interceding for tho Chinese. They
aro at work on congressman and senator;
their missionaries aro laying plans for
tho conversion of the president of the
United States to their theories. Stand
ing behind them aro tho Christian em
ployers of this land, who would rather
import a heathen willing to work for
barely enough to sustain life than retain
a brother Christian at a wage sufficient
to enablo a man to live as becomes a
Christian. Wodorrt want tho opium
or tho Chinese who grow it; both are
curses when planted whore civilization
has a foothold.
Mr. Powderly makes a strong plea for
tho restriction gf immigration "of a
kind that is arcely any bettor than
that which flows from China." Ho says:
I believo that the day has arrived foi
thoso who lovo humanity to protest
against tho further immigration f these
peoplo. Tho United States and Canada
should no longer constituto tho safety
valvo of Europe. Self-preservation is
tho first law of uaturo, and tho timo has
como to stato fearlessly nnd unequivo
cally that tho immigration of today is a
curse to thoso who aro hero, as well as
to thoso who come.
In conclusion Mr. Powdorly urges all
members of tho order to work for tho
restriction of immigration and tho elec
tion of Umted States senators by direct
