my head felt a if it was swelling and

Chinese Attorneys Hope for a Stay
of Proceedings, aod Repeal of
Washington, May 19. President
Cleveland and hi cabinet have arrived
at a definite conclusion as to the action
to betaken with reference to the Chinese
exclusion act. The president and mem
bers of his cabinet, who have charge of
this matter, have decided to put the law
into operation provided the attorneys
for the Chinese Six Companies do not
obtain a stay by bringing forward ad
ditional legal obstacles. Attorney
Riordan proposes, if possible, to carry
back from the supreme court to the cir
cuit court, from which the appeal came,
the mandate of the court to carry the
law into effect. This point may not be
successful, but is a very important one.
The attorneys assume that it will euili
ciently delay action until congress meets
again, and then it is hoped by the at
torney of the Chinese, and probably by
that government's officials, that at least
that provision of the Geary act provid
ing fcr the deportation of the Chinese
will be repealed. .In the event that no
further stay can be secured by the at
torneys of the Chinese, there is no longer
any question but what the administra
tion will attempt to carry out the pro
visions of the Geary act just as far as it
is possible for them to do with tlieuinney
on baud to pay the necessary expenses.
This action was determined upon at a
conference between President Cleveland
and Secretaries Carlisle and Gresliaru
and Attorney-General Olnev yesterdav.
