A kru.XK 3. The provisions of this con vention shall not affect the rights nt pres ent enjoyed by Chinese subjects being olii cials, teachers and students, merchant-i or travelers for curiosity or pleasure, hnt uot laborer?», of coming to the United State*, and residing therein. To entitle such sub jects as Bre above described to admission into the United States, they may prodace certificates from the government «here they bave resided, issued by the diplomatic reprcssntative of the United Statte of America in the conntry or port whence they depart. It is also agreed that Chi nese laborers thall continue to enjoy the privilege of transit across the territory ot the United Statesof America in thecourse ot their journey to or from other countries biihject to 8nch regulations of the gofprn mentof the United States as may be neces sary. Article 4. In pars nan ce of Article 3 of the convention treaty between tin United States aud China, ligned at Pekin on the 17th day of November, IK*:», it is hereby understood and agreed that Chinese la borer-«, or Chinese of any other class, either permanently or temporarily in the United StatefJ shall have for the protection of their persons tto<l property all the rights that are >;iv«a J>y the laws of the United States to citizens of tho most favored na tiou, excepting the right to become natural ized citizens.

INDEMNIFICATION KOK Ot'TBAUKS. Akticlk 5. Whereas, Chinese subjects being in remote and unsettled regions in the United States have been the victims of injury, in their persons and property, at the hands of lawlesss aud wicked men, which nnexpected events the Chinese Gov ernment regrets and for which it has claimed indemnity, the legal obligation of which the Government of the United States denies; ntl whereas the Government of the United Slates, humanely consider ing these injuries and bearing in mind the firm and ancient friendship between the United States and China, which the high contracting parties wish to cement, is desirous of alleviating the ex i*ptionable aud deplorable guttering acd losses to which the aforesaid Chinese have been subjected; therefore, the United States, without reference to the questions of liability thtreior (which as a legal obli gation it denies) on or More the 1st day of March, 18*<y, shall issue the sum of f 17t),til9 75 to the Cbiuete Minister at this cipital, who shall accept the same on be half of his government as full indemnity for all losses sustained by Chinese subjects as aforesaid, and shall distribute the said money among the said sufferers and their relatis'ts.

SECRETARY BAVARD S LETTER Accompanying the President's Me«»age and Treaty tu Congre««. The treaty was accompanied by a mes sage from President Cleveland and a letter from Secretary of State Bayard, explana tory of the reasons for its negotiation. The Secretary says: ' We have «reared the cooperation of China in the main purpose and object of the treaty, which it is plainly stated in the first article of the convention te be the ab solute prohibition of Chinese laborers from coming into the United States for twenty years and its renewal thereafter for a simi lar period nalem notice shall have been giver, a* provided in Article •». This pre cluded the ret am of any Chinese laborers who are not now in this country ; and for bids the coming into the United States of Chinese laborers from any quarter whatso ever. From this inhibition nre excepted any Chinese laborer, who has a lawtal wife, child or parent in the United States or property therein to the valne of $1,000, or of debts ot like amount due him and pend ing settlement. Considerations of human ity and justice require these exceptions to be made, for no law should overlook the ties of family, and the wages of labor are entitled to jast protection. Judging also by the statistics ot the clasa inqtua'.iou and from general expeuence, srch exceptes cases will 1« practically lew in num ber, infrequent and easily capable of such regulations as will prevent abuse. The regulation and control of the issue of such certificate« of return will be wholly in the bands of the United States officials, and power to prescribe other laws at dis cretion may be exercised by the United States. Snch right of return is for a lim ited period, and the certificates are inval idated by the perpetration of frauds in con nection with their procurement and nse, and the United States are free to adopt such measures as may become advisable to check or punish any abuse. PROTECTION OF CHIN KSK HEBE. "It cannot be justly alleged that any discrimination has been made against the I Chinese by the laws of the United St te», nor that they have been denied or ob structed in their access to avec nee of pablic remedial jnstice, which are open to all per sons alike without distinction of race or nationality. Bnt the fact remains that there bas been a failure of jnstice in the repression and punishment of çrime and lawless violence, of which Chinese were thft victims owing to the mingled causes of race prejudice or labor rivalry, their pecu liar habits and segregation from other nationalities. The ill-treatment to whiob Chinese laborers have been subjected by lawless and cruel men in certain scantily settled and remote regions of onr jurisdic tion, where they arc practically beyond the reach of the protecting arm of the law, baa been a snbject of just complaint by their government, as well as mortification and sorrow to onr own * * * The stipulations of our treaty with China does not demand the enactment or enforcement of laws discriminating in ta vor of Chinese subjects in the United States, nor does it entitle them to greater or other protection tban is accorded to citizen* of the roost favored nation. Tried by this t*-st, the Chinese, in all can* of injury to their person or property, are equal l*!'oie the laws of this country to the citizens of any other most favored nation, and cer tawrly to car owu citterns."

Pittsburg, Pa., March 2H.—The propo sition of Andrew Carnegie to the striking employes of the F.lgar Thompson steel work ', was read at a meeting of the Ex ecutive Committee of the Knight* 01 Labor to-night, and will he presented to the workmen at Braddock, Pa., to-morrow. Mr. Carnegie proposes a sliding scale to regnlate wages on the English plan. He suggest* that the workmen and firm each select an accountant to examine the sales and see what the selling price of the firm has been for the past month. If it is found that the price has increased, wages are tobe advance«! correspondingly, and vice versa, iu accordance with the op eration of the scale as agreed upon.

Pittsburg, Mtrcb 'J8 —There no longer exists even the semblance of a Coke Syndi cate. The climax to the disagreements ot the operators was reached yesterday after noon. To-day there is an open market. The cut iu prices is already said to have com menced. It comes from a reliable source that coke has been offered at $1 per ton. At the meeting yesterday afternoon the breach between the operators kept widen ing until all efforts to come to an amicable understanding proved to be fruitless, and the meeting adj.nirned »ine die. It was not evea agreed to try and snstain the price of $1 Via. Toe market was declared open, eai h operator being at liberty to sell his product for whatever ligure lie could net. As soon as the meeting adjourned there was a rush of the operators to telegraph their enstomera that they were in the mar ket to sail as low as any other firm in the Connellsville region. To-day the result of yesterday's meeting was boiDg generally discussed in coke cir cle*. The general impression of all the operators seen was that all attempts to form an Exchange and keep np the prite ended with the meeting yesterday, and that an other would not be held. This, they said, meant that the price would drop, some predicting that it would go as low aa 90 cents. Said one operator: "The sooner the bottom is reach«! the better. For my part I will shut down my ovens if the price goes to $ 1. If it goes so low then the operators will come to their senses and may conclude to agree npon some plan of harmonious action." "I understand 1 hat coke is l>eing offered below $1.25 Von can rest a-sured that, now an open market has been declared, we go into it to »ell coke as low as any other firm. I don't care who they be. We will meet every cut." Another member ot the same firm »aid: ''There is no doubt that coke in being offer ed below $1 25. 1 know that it wtw offer ed yesterday at $1. This is positive. No, sir, there will be no more meetings of the operators." It has h;eti a matter of specalatioa as to what wn< to be done with the coke of the Prodmers' Association. The old »Syndi cate members had a two yearn' contract to sell all this on commission. To day it is said that this contract is also annulled. This leaves every operator in the entire Conuellsviiie region independent to pat bis coke ou the market at whatever figare he can get. OV A SOLID HASI4.

PRESIDENT GREEN, Of the I'siM, ob tl>« Spoonrr la. t«r-.SUt* Ttlfptph Bill. Washington, March 38.—Dr. N'orrin Gk«d, Preeident of the Western Union Telegraph Company, add reaped the Senate Committee on Iuter-Stat* Commerce thia morning on the 8pooner Intei-8fate tele graph bill. He aaid be did not appear to oppose a fair and reasonable enactment for the regulation of the telegraph. If the telegraph *v commerce 'n the oonatitn tiocal sense and the Snpreme Conrt had decided that its basinemia commerce, then there conld be no question of the power of Contiens to enact ancb a law, such as that proposed. Ordinarily his company would desire to be let alone, bnt under the circnmstonces it wa« not averse to snch an enactment as proposed, with certain objectionable feat ure« stricken out. lie was led to this con clusion from the fact that bis company owns and operates four-filths, perhaps m Ten-eighths of all ot the telegraphs in the Uuited States and is therefore an ap parent monopoly, while in point of fact it ha* no exclusive franchisee—no legal privi leges* that anybody else cannot get. Tbest> emeutary patent« have expired, and except as to same improved methods anybody might bnild and operate a telegraph. Bnt the telegraph» had drifted into h combina tion uot from the grasping efforts of auy one maa or set of meu, but from the neces sitous law* ot trade. The rates bad been cheapened and the busin««* greatly im proved in its facilities and in promptness of service. It was a fact that in l*k! the old lines were prettily heavily capitalized. Theoom pauy bad to give a sum equal to ita capital stock for patents, and that duplicated the stock of the property. Since that date the water had been squeezed oat of the stock in divers ways. There were grot« popular errors as to the cost ot maintaining the property, aud he referred to the destruc tion of telegraph poles and wires by the recent blizzard to show that it («st some thing to maintain a telegraph system. The persons who said that the government could send messages for ten cents and make the line self-sustaining knew noth ing about the business. It was utterly imp*wihle. He believed that the Western Union property conld not be duplicated for its cost. Senator Culloui—Do you mean to say that your property cost eighty millions of dollars?" roj'l'I.AR KIiR|Iiis CORBKCTRD. Dr. Ureen—Yen. I mean to My that it could not he reproduced for that suiu. There w:n another popular error a* to the sanctity of telegrams The idea that any one man had access to messages pvwing over the Western Union wire« was too absurd to discuss. Another popular error was that this great property wv controlled by one man. The act nal fact aboat it was thia: The thirty directors of the company hold lea» than $'27,000,000 of the stock, leaving nearly $<k),000,000 in the hands of sundry parties. The largest holding of any one man was 120,000,000. The voting power outside of the property was larger than the voting power inside of the property, and the action taken by the company was not always in accordance with the wishes of the largest stockholders. Coming to what he de^ribed as the oh jectionahle features of the bill reported by the Postoffice Committee, he first look np the arbitrary section relative to the handling of messages, according to the time of their receipt. He said that in the «maller offices that rule conld easily be observed, bat it was not so in the larger offices like New York with eighteen hundred wires. One operator might work faster than another, aad it won Id be almost impossible to ex actly distribute ilie message* and keep them in their precise order. Therefore, be believed that the section shonld be quali fied by the addition of the words "As near as possible. " The general scope of the sec tion forbidding discrimination in forward ing messages, alio sufficiently covered the the c-ise without the specidc requirement. PARK RTtHBlTRG PICKUPS.

Assistant Postmaster Dodd said In one of the employes, Mr. McClelland: "It ia better for the boy a to resign than to ha\e us trump up charge« against them It al most breaks Mr. Jones' heart to have to trnmp np charges againit the hoys."
