Mr. Wilson Makes a Statement
ccrnin? the Bill and Its
28.—The new
Democratic tariff bill has been given or*
to the public, and its provisions fnlfill
•'very expectation of those who have
predicted that it would be a radical
measure. In many respects it is a sur
prise, even to the Democratic members
of congress, as it is unprecedented in
many of its prorisions.
The free list is of that liberal scope
sufficient to satisfy the most radical ad
vocates of reform, and the repudiation
of the principle of reciprocity, which has
'been the pride of the Reptiblicans and
the bete noir of the Democrat* for a
number of years, it
Dwlii»« Md Kmphntle.
The United States tariff bill, in addition
to the reforms it makes in the customs
laws, will necessitate readjustment of
treaties with those South American
countries which enjoy practical or theo
retical reciprocity with the great Amer
ican republic of tfce northern hemi
The bounty on sugar, which was to be
so promptly repealed, is instead, to be
repealed by easy gradations, and will
not reach its conclusive effect until after
the present century.

after the roll call, Chairman Wilson at
once laid the bill before the entire com
mittee. On and after March 1.1884, the

department is somewhat concerned over
the prospect of the Chinese registration
under the new law bearing upon that
subject which passed upon the eve of
the adjournment of the extra session,
and under which the department has
just issued its regulations. The suppo
sition is that the Chinese will comply
with the law, but no one can say
definitely until the experiment is tried.
The officials themselves are as much in
the dark as any one else. The only ex
perience they have had with the Chinese
is against the supposition.
Almost a month has elapsed since the
new law went into effect, and no test of
the temper of the Chinese has been made
under its provisions. The instructions
of the department under which the fed
eral officials are to act have now leen
prepared, and it is to be presumed that
no great time will le permitted to elapse
before the United States marshals and
other officials throughout the country
will be informed as to the course they
are expected to pursue towards the
Chinese. If they should again refuse to
comply with the law the situation would
be awkward. Estimates made by the
treasury and judicial departments has
placed the cost of de[ortation of all the
Chinese in the country at some
thing over $10,000,000, and there is little
uiouoy available for the purpose.
A PuHlIng 4|tie»tionu
Congress will, in all probabilities %e
in session when the vexed points shall be
determined, and it could of course, be
apiealed to for an appropriation. But
with the treasury receipts falling behind
the expenditures at the rate of $1,000,000
per month, the question of getting the
money would still be a puzzle, and it
would doubtless require some hard
pressing to get the necessary funds ap
propriated. The Pacific coast represent
atives, who have taken the, greatest in
terest in the question say, however,
that the money would be forthcoming,
and that there would be no
more temporizing. It is said that
intelligent Chinamen generally did not
object to the registration, and generally
look upon it as a personal protwtion,
but the bulk of them will be controlled
by their employers now as formerly.
They do not as a race take kindly to
having their photographs taken for the
purpose, but there is no reason to sup
pose that this objection will long stand
in the way of compliance with the law,

he 4s denying himself to all callers to
work ujxjn it. He does not come into
his office except on cabinet days, Tues
days and Fridays, and works late into
the night. Heretofore President Cleve
land has usually allowed himself six
weeks to work on his message. It it
supjKJsed that he has deferred the work
on it this year to allow time for soma
development in the Hawaiian matter.
The time for congress to convene is so
near that no longer delay is jKssible. It
is therefore thought probable that Ha*

of The Standard at Rome says that in
the highest and most reserved circles it
is well known that the present dream of
the Vatican is the establishment of a

of 20 persons indicted for smuggling
have begun in the United States court.
The trials are of unusual interest, owing
to the social and i»olitical prominence of
some of the defendants, among whom is
James Letan, ex-collector of customs,
and J. C. Mulkey, ex-special agent of
the treasury department.
The first case called was that of
Nathan Blum, on the charge of smug
gling 300 pounds of opium. Blum plaed
guilty. Sentence was reserved. It is
stated that Blum will now be a witness

Nov. 28.—The parliamentary

be rash to forecast the issue, the more so
that it may be said to rest outside the
house. The agrarian campaign, out

is nothing less than a deliberate at
