thing patrlotlo to the effect that no war
vessel flying tbeUnitedStates flag would
ever yield to a Britisher or a ship of any
other nation. Rather than do so it
would sink within the briny deep with
the Btara and stripes still unfurled.
The Englishman was undaunted.
He replied with a remark about the
"superiority of the British tars over the
Hamerioan tare," and Hank became
still more nettled. Finally he said:
"Your an Englishman are'nt you?"
I was a lieutenant in Her Majesty's

and delivered his annual address. He
dwelt ut some length on the transition
wblch.badtbeen going on for ten years
toward younger men and different
methods in party managemept, and
continued as follews:
"As we begin here today, the march
of victory lu 1890, wo have neither
complaints nor apologies, nor explana
tions to make for the defeat of last year.
We have had a Democratic president
and congress for sixty days, and Cleve
land has hauled down the Ameri
can flag where Harrison and Republi
cans ran it up In tho namo of liberty
on the Sandwich Islands. Ho and his
secretary of the treasury, have already
frightened the business world, created
uneasiness and fear where safety and
prosperity ruled before.
As to money and banking, the coun
try will depend on the Republican mi
nority in congress for defense from
threatened harm. Neither the extreme
eastern view that would force this
country to a gold basis, nor the view
that would make money dearer and all
other property cheaper, will solve the
problem or save tho country. This Is a
silver producing nation, and our money
should be gold, silver and paper, every
dollar of which Bhould be as good as
the other, and the volume of safe money
made and kept sufficient for the de
mands of our expanding nation,

act, argument was opened by Joseph
H. Choate, of New York, for petition.
era, for a writ of habeas corputt. Ho
said there were two questions at Issue:
Fhst, shall 100,000 unoffending, help
less rcsldonts of this country, under au
thority of an act of congress, without
rovlew by our courts, be deported to
their native country?
Second, in caso the emperor of China
shall tomorrow feel Inolined to follow
tho example of this great enlightened
country, and expel from his domains
Amerloans residing therein, shall the
voice of this people, either through its
government or its press, or by Individ
nals, be prevented from uttering a sin
TUB OTHER SIDE.
Solicitor General Aldrlcb followed on
behalf of tho United Stales. Ho con
tended that the Geary act had not for
Its purpose the deportation of Chinese
laborers, but to provide a system of
registration and Identification, which
is the lawful purpose of tho act aud has
never been disputed, lis methods are
lawful and tho aot is reasonable and
humane. Aldrlch maintained the
right of congress to require registration
and identification of olttaeus or allenr.
In concluding Aldrlch said tho police
power retted with tho state, nation or
people, and Intimated that it would bo
better for the Chinese if tho nation re
tains control, for lu the present tec per
of the people In some states, any aotlon
taken by the people of those states
would probably be drastlo In its char
acter, having for its object the entire
expulsion of the obnoxious race.
