Chinese Restriction BilL
ByTelegraph to the Oregonian
"Sew York, Feb. 24. Senator J
G. Blaine, of Maine, prints in the
Tribune a three column letter in reply
reflections by Williaiit Lkyd Gar
rison upon the senators who votetl
for the bill restricting Chinese immi
gration. Ih this letter he calmly and
forcibly reviews the whole question,
and conclusively justifies his vote
Upon substantially the following
First That although the Burlin
game treaty specially reprobates any
other than voluntary immigration,
there has not been IVotn the outset
any immigration of Chinese to this
country in the sense which immigra
tion comes to us from Europe. It
has all been under contract and
through agencies, and if not in every
respect of the coolie type, the entire
immigration from China has had the
worst and most demoralized features
Second That of the 125,000 Chi
nese in the Pacific coast States and
Territories, fnlly nine tenths are male
adults without families, and the
Chinese women in this country are
almost all of the base description. If,
says Blaine, as a nation we have the
right to keep out infections diseases;
it vfe have the right to exclude crim
inal classes from corning to us, we
surely possess the right to exclude
that immigration which reeks with
impurity and which cannot come to
US without plenteously sowing seeds
of immoral and physical disease, des
titution and death.
Third Chinese immigration to
California began with American im
migration in 1848. The two races
Have been side by side for more than
thirty years nearly an entire gener
ation and not one step toward as
similation has been taken. All im
migration from Europe to-day assim
ilates at once with its own blood on
this soil, and to place Chinese coolies
on the same footing is to shut one's
eyes to all instincts of human nature
and all teachings of history.
Blaine then describes the Chinese
modeof lifein California, and inquires:
Isit not inevitable that a class of men,
living in this degraded and filthy
condition and on the poorest food,
can work for less than the American
laborer is entitled to receive for his
daily toil ? Put two classes of labor
side by side and cheap servile labor
pulls down more manly toil to its
level. The free white laborer never
could compete with the slave labor of
the South. In the Chinaman the
white laborer finds only another form
of servile competition, in some aspects
more revolting and corrupting than
African slavery. Whoever contends
for unrestricted immigration of Chi
nese coolies contends for that system
of toil which biights the prospects of
the white la-borer, dooming him to
starvation wages, killing Ins ambition
by rendering the struggle hopeless,
and ending in plodding and pitiable
Fourth Blaine informs Garrison
that the late Caleb Cashing, who had
carefully studied the Chinese-question
ever since his mission to Pekin in
1842, maintained that unless resisted
by the United States, the first general
famine in China would be followed by
an emigration to California that would
swamp the white race.
Fifth After quoting the testimo
ny of T. W. Jackson and others to
show that if the Chinese felt that
they were safe and had a firm footing
in California, they would come in
enormous numbers because the popu
lation of China is inexhaustible, Mr.
Blaine say: The decision of Con
gress on this matter therefore becomes
of very , great importance. Had it
Been in favor of Chinese immigration,
with the encouragement and protec
tion which that would have implied,
it requires no vivid imagination to
foresee that the great slope between
the Sierra and Pacific would become
emigrating ground for the Chinese
Empire, so that I do not at all exag
gerate when I say that on abrogation
or rejection of the policy passed
upon by Congress, hangs the fate
of the Pacific slope, whether its
labor shall be that of American free
men or servile Mongolians. If Mr.
Garrison thinks the interests of his
own countrymen, his own Govern
ment, and, in a siill larger sense the
interests of humanity and civilization
will be promoted by giving up the
Pacific States to Mongolian labor, I
beg respectfslly but firmly to differ
from him. There is no giound on
which we are bound to receive them
tcour own detriment. Chanty is the
first of the Christian graces, but Mr.
Garrison would not feel obliged to
receive into his family a person who
Wonld physically contaminate or
morally corrupt his children. As
With' a family, so with nations the
same instinct of selt-preservation ex
ists the same right to prefer the
interests of our own people, the same
duty to exclude that which is cor
rupting and dangerous to the republic.
Senator Blaine maintains that the
outcry that we are violating our
treaty obligations is without any
foundation. Besides showing that
China has not observed the treaty
articles concerning voluntary emi
gratkm, he cites ample authorities to
show that our Government possesses
the clear right to abrogate the whole
or any part of the treaty if it is found
pernicious to the State. He shows
that there was no difference of opin
ion in the Senate on this point, and
and that the Cockling proposition
rested upon it and announced it
coupled with a threat.
In the next place, Blaine remarks,
a great deal has been said about dan
ger to our trade if China should
resort to some form of retaliation.
The natural and pertinent mode of
retaliation is to restrict American
emigration to China. Against that
we will enter no protest, and should
have no right to do so.
The talk about China closing her
ports to our trade is made only by
those who do not understand the
question. Last year the total amount
of our exports to all China ports out
side of Hongkong was but 002,000.
I have called Hongkong a Chinese
port, but every child knows that it is
under British control, and if we were
at war with China to day Hongkong
would be as open to us as Liverpool
To speak of China punishing us by
suspending trade is only the sugges
tion of dense ignorance. We pay
China an immense balance in coin,
and probably we always shall do it;
but if the trade question bad the im
portance which some erroneously at
tribute to it I. wonld not seek. its con
tinuance by permitting a vicious im
migration of Chinese coolies. The
Bristol merchants cried out that our
oommerce would be ruined if Eng
land persisted in dest roying the slave
trade, but history does not record
that England sacrificed her honor by
yielding to the cry.
Blaine shows that the enlightened
religious sentiment of the Pacific
coast views with profound alarm the
tendency and effect of unrestricted
Chinese immigration. After quoting
the address of the California Congre
gational churches on this subject, he
says that in regard to the process of
converting and christianizing these
people, a missionary who hail been in
the field since 1849, testifies that not
one in a thousand have even nomi
nally professed a change from heath
enism, and of this small number
nearly one-half had been taught in
missionary sclioois in China. The
same missionary says that as they
come in still larger numbers, they
will more effectually support each
other in their national peculiarities,
! 'mil t!iv will twH-sunt still more con
firmed in heathen immoralities. With
an influence in every IT spec t incalcu
lably bail, under what possible sense
of duty any American can feel that
he promotes Christianity, by the
process of handing California over to
heathenism, is more than I am able
No one connected in any manner
with the Government of the Repub
lic, can view the situation without
grave concern. At least nine large
States of the South are disturbed by
race troubles of which no man is yet
wise enough to see the end. The
central and largest and wealthiest of
our territories is seized by a polyga
mous population which flaunts defi
ance in the face of the General Gov
ernment. Discontent among unem
ployed thousands has already mani
fested a spirit of violence, and but
recently arrested travel between the
Atlantic and ' Mississippi by armed
mobs which defied three States and
commanded the great trunk lines of
railway to cease operations. Practi
cal statesmanship uTould suggest that
the Government of the United States
has its hands full, and that nothing
but sheer recklessness will force upon
the American population of the Pa
cific slope the odious contamination of
the lowest -grade of the Chinese race.
j It may be attempted, but in my
I judgment it will lead to direful
results, in which violence, murders
and massacres will be terribly fre
quent, Let it be proclaimed here
now that the General Government
will support and maintain unrestricted
immigration ot Chinese coolies, and
in less than five years a larger military
force than the existing army of the
United States will be required to keep
the peace on the Pacific slope. I
feel and know that I am pleading the
cause ot the free American laborer,
and of his children and his children's
children. It has been well said that
it is the cause of the house against
the hovel, of the comforts of the free
man against the squalor of the slave.
It has been charged that my posi
tion would arraign labor saving ma
chinery and condemn it. This answer
is not only superficial, it is also absurd.
Labor saving machinery has multi
plied power to pa', has developed
new wants, and has continually en
larger the area of labor and con
stantly advanced the wages of the
laborer But survile toil has always
dragged free labor to its lowest level
and has stripped it of one privilege
after another, until it was helpless
and lippeless. Whenever that con
dition comes to the free laborer,
America as a republic of equal rights
is gone and we shall live under the
worst of oligarchies, that of mere
wealth, whose profit only measures
the wretchedness of unpaid toilsmen
that produce it.
Senator Blaine concludes his letter
as follows : "This Chinese question
connects itself intimately and inseper
aoly with the labor question. Their
immigration is encouraged by some
openly and by many secretly, because
their labor is cheap. The experiment
is a most danderous one in a Repub
lic where the man who works carries
a ballot in his hands. It will not do
for capitalized wealth to legislatefor
cheap labor; we do not want cheap
labor; we do not wand dear labor;
we want labor at fair rates, at
rates that shall give the laborer his
fair share and the capitalist his fair
sham. If more is sought by capital,
less will be in the end realized. There
is not a laboring man from the Pe
nobscot to the Sacramento who would
not feel aggrieved, outraged, burden
ed, crushed, by being forced into
competition with the labor and wages
of the Chinese coolie. Years ago
Mr. Carlyle said to an American
friend, 'you will have no trouble in
your country as long as you have few
people and much land, but when yon
have much people and little land
your trials will begin.' "
MX AO.tlAI.OI S POSITION.
We have in this State a Governor,
who was elected to that honorable
position -by the suff rages of the Dem
ocratic party ; a life-long Democaat
himself; he look into his ' councils,
so far as possible, well known Demo
crats, but aff r five month's adminis
tration we find him unsupported by
the. organs of the party. The papers
that, were loudest in their professions
of support before the election, are
now swift to denounce, and why? It
is not charged that he has proven a
traitor to Democratic dogmas ; it is
not chamed that he has been truiltv
of any high crimes or misdemeanors;
it is not charged that he. is conspiring
against the best interestsof the Stale
or attempting to defraud the people
in any particular. But alas, he has
been guilty of conspiracy with honest
men to ferret out corruption in high
places, and bring to justice those who
have betrayed the trusts confided in
For this Governor Thayer must go
to the wall. It was not enough that
he RDDointed two of Tilden's cinher
dispatch agents to positions of hon
or; it is not enough that each fac
tion ot the party has been considered
in the matter of making appoint
ment's. He has shocked the modesty
of partisan chivalric friends by at
tempting ,o make his living by prac
ticing his profession instead of steal
ing from the State.
It looks now very much as though
the Governor would have to run in a
crowd by himself and stand isolated
and alone in the midst of a throng
ingmultitude. Go back he cannot
go forward well, we shall see. Sa
To Get the '.N.t Out of Life.
Rev. O. B. Frothiiigham has an
article on this stibject in the Herald
of Health, horn which we quote par
agraphs of excellent counsel :
Length of days is still one of the
criteria of a good life, for it implies
temperance, frugality, counlinence,
regard for the conditions of prosperi
ty. Is one desirous of obtaining this
blessing? Then must he practice
moderation in pleasure, cultivate the
virtues of prudence and obedience,
cherish simplicity, abstain from ener
vating vices, avoid unseemly violence,
repress anarchical and tempestuous
dispositions. He must study peace
and good will, and thus substitute
economy of force for waste, encour
aciinir the powers that build up. Rea-
son reinforces, passion squanders, vice
destroys, lo escape wear and tear
is wisdom ; but to escape wear and
tear lays a duty on conscience and
soul which the foolish cannot under
stand. Longevity implies material
ease and comfort,-admitting reasona
ble contentment, easy social relations,
circumstances that do not rasp or
fret, and to create these it is necessa
ry that impulse should be submitted
to judgment, and that reflection
should be strong enough to'subordin
The next condition on which the
most is to be extracted from the
world is that our days on earth be
not only long, but happy. Freedom
from misery, from sickness, perplexi
ty, heartache and corroding care, is a
condition of successful life. A mis
erable life cannot by any stretch of
interpretation be called well used
life, for misery means wate. dissatis
faction, discord. How does one make
himself happy? Not by putting
himself out of tune with himself and
his circumstances, not by running the
risk of misfortune, jeopardizing his
chances of felicity. The hero may
do this; the philanthiopist may do
it; the reformer; but these do not
seek happiness. They are exceptions
to the rule. We must not pitch our
doctrine on the heroic key. We may
be simple, lowly, wise, and say frank
ly the aim is to make life happy.
Hence it has become a trite saying,
that the people who wish to make
the most of life, must practice the
old childlike virtues of sincerity, ve
racity, consideration, kindness. They
must not think of themselves first,
but must be willing to believe that
they can learn as well as teach, that
the right to be served must be bal
anced by the zeal to serve.
Yet a third condition for getting
the utmost out of lite is, that life shall
be harmless. I do not contend that
it should be noble, great, magnanim
ous, or even conspicuously useful.
But how not to harm the world; that
is a simple thing.- Dp not cheat; do
not lie ; do not betray ; do not un
dermine the physical or moral health;
do not make light of social advan
tages ; do not fly in the face ot im
mutable facts; do not impugn the
established principles of rectitude;
do not make war on institutions that
will yield to the power of reason ;
throw no stumbling block in the way
of your neighbor, but open paths as
fiir as you can; multiply opportuni
ties; increase privileges; make it
worth while for people with whom
you associate to say and think pleas
ant things of vou.
A Good Mother. We passed an old
lady staggering Under the burden of her
baegage, Who was too poor to ride or pay a
porter. Before I knew it he had her load in
his own hand, without a word said, and he
carried it until he gave it to her at her des
tination. When he returned I asked him
what she gave him in return. He answered
"She gave the richest reward I ever re
ceived for so small a service, and she didn't
even thank me ; she said, 'God bless yonr
good mother, for you have got one at
home.'" foreign Letter.

Alleged Cure for Urunkcnncss.
The Chicago Tribune of March 24,
printed the following letter:
Minneapolis, March 9.
In times past you have published
numerous articles on the cure of
drunkenness; but none of them, so
far as I have been a-ble to discover,
have resulted in relU ving the victim
they were intended to benefit. With
your permission I will now give to
the world, through the Sun, a sure
and speedy cure for intemperance a
cure that has been tried frequently,
and always successfully.
Let the inebriate it matters not
whether he is just getting off, is be
ginning it, or on a "spree" begin
by taking every two hours one drachm
(teaspoon ful) ot' tincture of cinchona
(Peruvian bark). This will make
him feel -rood. He can increase the
dose to six drachms (tcaspoonfuls)
without any danger, and take it in
that proportion four to ten times a
day. It will not destroy his appetite
for food. In the course of a l'ew,days
the anti periodic properties of the
cinchona begin to tell, and he loses
not only taste for the tincture, but
also for everything in the way ot
Recently, in this city, a wfill-fcnown
gentleman who has in times past
been on his 500 and 1,000 sprees
tried this remedy, telling the various
druggists where he drank it that he
was fighting, and would conquer, the
greatest demon on earth; but they
would hardly believe him. Yet he
conquered, and the appetite for drink
vanished, lie was never nervous,
never lost his appetite or sleep din
ing the siegf, and came out of the
ordeal in perfect health. During the
time the fever lasted I ave him two
or three deses of simpk- medicine for
his general health, but the tincture of
cinchona did the business. This case
can be verified by the proprietors of
seven of our drug "stores. So well
satisfied am I of the value of the
treatment, that I will guarantee a
cure in all cases, using this remedy
alone. R. D'UNGER, M. D.
In a subsequent letter, communi
cated to the Chicago Tribune, Dr.
D'Unger says :
As all medical men and druggists
are aware there is a large amount of
adulteration in "Peruvian bark of
commerce," many barks which are
mixed with the genuine possessing
the same bitter principle observed in
quinine, but not the alterative and
antiperiodic properties which the
genuine bark alone possesses. In
speaking of tincture of cinchona,
therefore, I should have mentioned
that the bark out of which it is made
mint be pure, for it is the antiperiodic
property that cures inebriation.
The Tribune adds the following,
If Dr. D'Unger has really discov
ered a specific that will cure inebri
ates of the burning desire or appetite
for strong drink, he will be one of the
greatest benefactors to the human
race the world has ever known. If
this remedy proves successful and
could be administered lo every man
and woman who has an appetite toi
liquor, it would advance the world
toward the millcnium. It would do
away with crime almost altogether.
It would bring sunshine into thou
sands of darkened homes. It would
banish poverty. It would reuniti
dissevered families. It would make
men industrious and women nappy.
Any man who can bring about such
results as these has made a discovery
oy tne side or wnicn Mr. j&atson s
are unimportant. It may be that Dr.
D'Unger's remedy will prove a fail
ure; but it certainly deserves a fair
trial, and there are plenty of men in
this city who ought to test it at once.
i here is no secret about the medicine
or the formula. It is easily procured
and any one can prepare it. Avery
short lime will test its merits.
From McGregor, Iowa, the Tribune
has the following :
About two weeks ago I read in
your paper about the cinchona cure
for drunkenness, discovered by Dr.
D'Unger, of Minneapolis, Minn., and
I thought I would try it by sending
to him for some of the medicine
through a friend. My friend got the
medicine, and after taking it three
days I couldn't drink a glass of whis
ky to save my neck. It acted won
derfully but not disagreeably. In
deed, it made me feel splendid, and I
was astonished at the result. I have
been more or less a drunkard for fit
teen or sixteen years,, and I am now
like a new man in health and spirits.
I thought I would write to you about
it, so that it would reach the people
of Chicago, where I first began my
drinking, and where I know such a
remedy is badly needed. I give you
my name, but 1 don't wish you to
publish that, though I do wish you to
print just what I have said.
Suit to be Commenced. We un
derstand that the charges of the In
vestigating Committee against ex
Secretary Chadwick, are to be tested
in the courts at no distant day, as
suit is to be brought in the name of
the State against him for the delin
quencies charged in the report. This
is of course the way to settle the
matter to the satisfaction of the pub
lic, and if any vindication can come
to Secretary Chadwick it must be
gained in this way. If the courts ex
onerate him he will be above attack,
and until they do, no-vindication can
avail. The public will await the is
sue of this trial with great interest,
and the disclosures to be made will
perhaps go deeper than the Investi
gating Committee were able to pene
trate,, as that committee could not
compel attendance of witnesses.
THE WHEAT TRADE.
Ed. Gazette : The cars and river steam
ers are rapidly carrying to Portland all the
wheat and flour for sale, as far south of that
city as Jtoseburg. A considerable amount
of this wheat has remained over for two or
three years past. Our people have held
back their wheat for war prices. Diploma
cy has done what the vast armies in Europe
and Asia were expected to do. Now, de
mand and supply alone will regulate sales
and prices. It is only the superiority of
our wheat and flour that keeps up the pri
ces of our wheat at present rates. In al
most all cases it is good policy to sell our
wheat, at the best figures obtainable, at
threshing time. This is the course gener
ally pursued by our California friends. In
fact it is a good rule to sell anything which
we have to dispose of, at the best price then
offered. Many have held back their wheat
here to their own loss. Long years of expe
rience prove this to us. Perhaps in three
weeks more our wheat, in all the warehous
es, and most of our flour, will b converted
in to gold, which will greatly relieve the
money pressure amongst us. If the farmers
and others here, while they have the yellow
boys in their purses, should happen to
think of the poor, toiling printers, who are
supposed to lie able to live on air and water,
ami fork over their old, delinquent debts to
them, and pay in advance for a year, would
not the printers be in luck, and would not
they go on their way rejoicing ?

f alitornia Elastic Truss Co:
After practicing medicine manv years in this city
during which time I have had an extensive experience
m the application of all kinds of Trusses, 1 can and
do recommend yours as the best in every respect for
it is as near perfection as modem science can make it
It has many advantages over the torturing stcel-hoon
Trusses, which inflictgreat injury on the hips and
spine, bringing on other distressing ailments, such as
lumbago, morbid affections oi the kidneys and numb
ness in the loWcr limbs, all of which are avoided by
wearing the California Elastic Truss. It is not only a
perfect retainer, combining ease and comfort, but the
pressure can be changed to any degree. It also re
mains in its proper place at all times, regardless of the
motions of the body, and is worn night and dav with
perfect 'ease. It is superior to any of the Elastic
Trusses now in the market, while 'it combines the
merits of all. 1st It is easily adjusted on and off
with snaps, doing away with straps and buckles.
2d The universal spring between the plate and pad
prevents all irritation, which is a god-send to the suf
ferer. 3d. The pad is adjusted on and off in an in
stant, and can be changed for any other size and form
most suitable to the case. In fact it combines every
quality essential to comfort and durability, and is un
equaled in lightness, elasticity, natural action, and
artistic finish. Many of my patients who are afHictecr
with hernia are wearing them, and all shall in the fu
ture, for 1 think the great ease with which these
purely scientific appliances are made efficacious, is
trulv remarkable. You can refer any parties to me
on the subject of their merits. I remain trulv yours.
