The Chinese in this country who seek
to prevent the extension ol the time dur
ing which tbe exclusion act shall oper
ate, and tbeir sentimental white sympa
thizers, are already conducting an active
campaign. Their papers throughout the
Ei.t and the South are in impassioned
editorials urging opposition to the reen
actment of the law. The New York
Journal of Commerce argues that there
never was and never will be any danger
of a serious influx of Chinese to this
country ; thst only a few ship loads of
them came after tbe first importation of
coolie labor to build the Pacific railroads ;
that they all come from one section of
one province, and residents in other
provinces show no desire to emigrate;
that they are industrious and form a val
uable labor element ; that a continuation
of tbe policy of exclusion would deprive
tbe people of this country of all the com
mercial advantages gained during the
recent troublea in China. The answer
to all of this is that it is not troe. The
people of the Pacific Coast krtow that the
"few ship-loads" brought thousands of
Chinese to these shores, and that they
were coming in increasing numbers
when tbe exclusion act attempted to
shut them out- They know that after
twenty years the Asiatic laborers are
Still endeavoring to defeat the purposes
of tbe exclusion act, and that they are
being smuggled in by way of Canada,
Mexico and Cuba. They know that the
Canadians are awakening to the evils of
this class of cheap laborers and consid
ering (he enactment of an exclusion law,
They know that the exclusion act is
based upon treaties to which the Chinese
government has given its consent. They
know that if there were no desire on the
part of the Chinese to enter this country
there would be no need for the opposition
to tbe extension act.
Nor id tbe activity of the opposition
conQned to editorial protest. A memo
rial to Congress, based upon the propo
sition that to travel and to make their
homes in aDy land are natural and in
alienable rights of tbe human race, is
being widely circulated for signatures.
If this basic principle is sound, our
government is violating it daily. The
immigration laws exclude paupers and
criminals of every race and coming from
every country. The principle that self
defense is the highest law of nature for
nations as well as for individuals is rec
ognized by every civilized government.
The right to exclude undesirable immi
grants is universally recognized. The
nlmorial claims that if any European
government attempted to shut us out of
its territory we would complain bitterly,
and it would probably lead to a declara
tion of war. If this government assumed
such a position, it would have to reverse
its immigration policy. Tbe memorial
has even been introduced into this state,
and is being circulated for signatures.
It is not probable that it will be very j
widoly signed. The people of California
have already overwbelmiugly expressed
their opposition to Chinese laborers
! coming hero to compete with and de
grade dee w hlte labor.
This active rampalgn must be met by
equal activity on the part of the friends
of exclusion. With the opposition of the
representatives of the Kant and the
Soutti, there is grave danger that the
law extending the policy of exclusion
will lail of passage. The Chronicle, of
this city, is doing good work In its al
moat daily appeals for action. The Ar
gonaut began pointing out the danger
eighteen .nonlhs atio. Nevertheless, all
ol the friends of exclusion must aland
together in the present crUU, and we
welcome the Chronicle' assistance. Let
all the other psivr of the eosst and all
of the people of the coast, without regard
to party, follow its example. Argonaut
Last week in Portland Scottish Hite
Masons purvhased the entire block bound1
ed by Morrison, Yamhill, Thirteen and
Fourteenths treets.which was the home of
the late Frank IVkum, snd subsequently
occupied by the defunct Oregon Road
club, for foS.OCO, and wi:l erect a mag
nificent cathedral on the property. The
building will be constructed of white
marble, and as much of the material as
possible ill be procured at home. The
lower floor will be devoted to reception
rooms and a well-equipped library, while
the upper portions of the structure will
contain the various lodge-room and busi
ness othVes necesHary for the transaction
of the athirs of the Oram! lodges, sub
ordinate city lodges, Scottish Hite
Masons, the Myotic Shrine, and Grand
nd subordinate chapters of Eastern

reputation as a city of beautiful homes
and this structure will add much to the
appearance of tbe residence section.

Turn will b 6v 000,000 bushel of
wheat in the crop of l'X I, based upon
the acreage aud the condition as set forth
by the department of agriculture. This,
of course, will break all the records, if it
come. The largest wheat crop ever
harvested thus far was ttiat o' lS'AS,
which was 675,000,000 bushels, and none
has come near that previously since li'Jl,
when the yield was 613.nrt),000 bushels.
Europe's yield is apparently going to be
considerably short ol the earlier expecta
tions, and there will be a market on the
other fidq of tbe Atlantic fur all the
wheat which the Cnited States will have
to spare. .
