Washington, Aug. 18. Senator Davis,
of Minnesota, member of the committee
on foreign relations, expect great things
from the new treaty with China. lie
said it will prove most beneficial to our
commercial interest. Kor years com
merce has been obstructed by the con
tention over the question of immigration.
Chinese immigration is now mado on
lawful by both countries. Owing tothis
and other disputes, other countries have
distanced u in the race for China's trade,
which they considered valuable enough
to fight for, a was shown by the action
of England and France. This country
has the beet geographical position for
securing thi trade. Our Pacific ports
and our transcontinental railway facili
tate the movement of freight in that di
rection. Chinese exclusivcnes is break
ing down. China has granted conces
sion for an immense iron and steel plant,
and for a railway from Hannow to Pckin.
Another railway from the northern coaBt
to the Russian frontier i now under
consideration, and telegraph lines are
1,-ing put op all over the empire. This
indicate commerce with an empire
whose people constitute one-fifth of the
human raoe. China oses silver in trade,
bnt produces little of it. Thi should
give our silver mine a market. In 1892
Chinese import were $123,500,000 and
her export $102,000,000. Great BriUin
furnished 3,1 10,000,00()(of the imports and
took $60,000,000 of the export, giving a
balance in ber favor of $00,000,000. The
United States' share of the import was
but $6,000,000 and she took $10,000,000
of export. Now access to the 23 treaty
porta ia a free to us as to any nation.

Will Appear a Witnesses.
Chicago. Aug. 20. President E. V.
fH'bs, of the American Railway I'nion,
was a witness before the strike commis
sion today. Thecourtroom was crowded
from bench to doorways. ''Now tell us
in your own way, Mr. leb," said Com
missioner Wright, what you know of
the Pullman strike and results."
Leaning forward in hi seat, the tall
leader of the great strike licgan in a clear
voice a recital w hich gradually became
more earnest and forcible as he pro
ceeded, until it developed into almost
an oration. He told of having received
word that a strike in Pullman was im
minent, and of his coming to Chicago
to investigate. "1 found," he said, the
men were working for the Pullman
company at wanes npon which they
could not live. I found salaries had
been cut time and again, until skilled
mechanics were working their lives
away for wages nut suflicient for day
laborers; tnat the town of Pfillman was
so schemed that every penny the work
ingmen made found its way back to the
company. In fact, I found the work
ingmen of Pullman in a pitiable condi
tion, and determined I would do all in
my power as president of the American
Railway Union to improve the condition
cf these men. The strike followed, or
dered by the men themselves.. Then
came the boycott ordered by the duly
elected delegates to our convention, and
then followed the railroad strikes, or
dered ly the various local unions, each
of which had a grievance, of its own."
"Would the railroad strike have oc
curred if there had betn no Pullman
trouble," asked commissioner Wright.
"No, the Pullman strike was the
prime cause. We desired to stop Pull
man's cars and shut off his income, thus
forcing him to arbitrate, but the lail
road men had grievances of their own.
The f ieneral Managers' Association bad
beeu organized with the avowed inten
tion of giving assistance to the railroads
in labor troubles. Its evident aim was
to drive organized labor from existence.
No sooner had this association been
formed than a systematic reduction of
railroad wages all over the country be
gan. The men were ready to strike and
felt they had caime, but the trouble
would not have come when it did had it
not lieen for the Pullman matter. The
time was nnpropitiou. I did not order
the strikes; I had not the power. The
men did that themselves, But I do not
wish to shirk any responsibility, and am
willing to say 1 heartily concurred in
and approved of the action taken by the
men. As to violence, I have always
condemned it, I have written and
spoken against it believing and know
ing a strike cannot be won by violence.

'"What about the "buy a gun tele
gram?" asked the commissioner.
"That is eanily explained. The tele
gram was sent by the private secretary
to a friend in Butt'-, and was merely a
playful expression. It was sent as such
and ho understood."
Debs then said that within five days
after the strike was declared the union
had the railroads beaten. "They were
paralyzed," he said, "but injunctions
were sown broadcast and shortly after
wards the officials of the American
Hallway I'nion were arrested for con
tempt of court. Thnt lieat us. About
that time (ieneral Miles came to Chicago
and called on the General Managers'
Association, and next day was quoted in
an interview as saying he had broken
the backbone of the strike. Now, I con
sider that call of General Mile as vul
garly out of place. He bad uo more
right to consult with the General Man

sult with our unions. I might say, too,
