China will be represented at the
world' fair by an oflicial exhibit.
The L'hineae government did not
and will hot reply to the invitation
extended by the Ynited States gov
ernment to lake part in the exjiwi
tion. You paw laws forbidding
our people to land on American toil,
and you can scarcely exn-et us to
lie so grateful for such treatment as
to lend our aid for vour glorification.
A syndicate of Chineae merchant,
aided by French capital, will have
an exhibit of Chinese products and
manufacture at the fair, if .space
cun bo obtained, and it is to obtain
information on that oiul that I am
here. The Chinese dislike of for
eigner is born of bitter experience.
Time and again foreigners have been
well received in China, only to repay
their benefactor with treachery,
avarice and greed, utterly regardless
of the rights of the jicople whose
guest they wore. Itcjxjntcd ex
periences of this kind have made
the Chinese think that all foreigners
art' enemies, and in too many in
stances this opinion has been veri
fied by the acts of foreigners. The
missionaries of China are a hind
rance to the progress of western
thought and the adoption of western
customs. The missionaries assume
an air of superiority mental, moral,
roligioiis and every other way over
our people that amuses the' intclli--gant
and educated Chinamen, but
angers very much the ignorant. We
have our own religion ami are satis
fied with it. Were a Chinese mis
sionary to come to America, and

Christians preach sermons in which
he ridiculed, sneered, and blasphem

all the forms of your leligion and

occasionally meet rough treatment
from the jsHijile whose faith he was
publicly outraging. Western in
lluonce in China would be benefited
by tho withdrawal of the mission

In Siam, as noon a ft man falls
into debt, hi creditor can seize his
person, put him in chain if neces
sary, and keep him as a slave fur
the term of his natural life. The
man's labor pay only the in
terest of the debt, however small it
may be; and his ole chance of re
covering his freedom is if a friend
or relative pay the original turn.
Should the debtor run away, his
wife and children, his father, or
otlior relative, are liable to be seiz
ed. The ordiuarv reply made bv a
servant on being engaged is that if
lie proves uniaitiiiul, you may take
his wife, children and house.

Church and state are kept pretty
distinctly apart in the 1'iiitcd Slates
a fact that causes a number of re
ligious monomaniac great distress.
Still in some cases the line of tie
marcatiou is not very pronounced,
as witness some of the legislation
regarding the observance of Sunday.
The (iotl in thc-constitulion rcople
clamor for some legal admission
that we aro a Christian nation, and
they sometime get it. I'p in
Washington the legislature has no
authority to pay a chaplain how
ever. The chaplain of the I'niled Slates
senate this year in hi first jirayer
of the session prayed long ami loud;
his eirort was a fine literary produc
tion but there was no reference in
it to Christ except in one expression
"Prince of jieaca." The prayer was
no more Christian than it wa Jew
ish or Mohammedan.
Tho law prescribing a new design
for silver coins docs not provide for
tho "In Cod wo Trust" motto,
though the designer has taken the
liberty of placing the phrase on the
coin. It seems to have been pur
posely omitted in the law, and its
ap(earanee ukii the new coins will
be entirely unwarranted.
As early a 17s7 there was a
pretty clear definition of the attitude
of this government upon Christian
ity. In the treaty with Tripoli,
made that year, it stated that "the
government of the I'nited States is
in no sens! whatever a Christian
In spite of nil the.e evidences
there seems to lie a tendency to
unite church matters with alfairs
of state. The government appro
priates a handsome sum annually
to aid sectarian Indian schools, and
in some states financial aid is given
private denominational school.
This insidious mixing :(" politics
and religious element." will produco
trouble sooner or later if por.-icvered

The authorities of Victoria, II. C,
have discovered in that city regular
slave shambles, where the China
men buy women as they would buy
tea. An investigation has just re
vealed the careers of six Chinese
girls who arrived by the limpres
of China about the middle of Ooto
Ikt. These girls, ranging in age
from 1 1 to I I years, were in charge
of two old women. Immediately

ami $1,100 rcsjicctivcly, but they
bound the four youngest ones over
to Liu You, a ianious procuress,
with instructions to wait for a better
market. On Monday last she sold
them for $1,110, $1,010, $.v and
$770 resectively, cash being paid
Tuesday night Lo Lee, a low, re
pulsive looking man, besotted with
opium smoking, but dressed in a
manner that at once pronounced
him wealthy, carelessly 0wucd his
disirs to the men w ho were search
ing for the. girls. In the first room
huddled in a native lied, were the
two girls, but pale and with eye
like those of hunted minimis. When
questioned they told their tale in a
plain, straight forward manner.
Ilrielly, they were slaves, living in
dread of their owner anil forced to
immoral lives; this in the principal
street of Victoria, 200 yards from
the city hall.
More Indian troubles are brewing
over the decision of the interior de
partment to the effect that half
breeds on the Sioux reservation are
not entitled lo the same right as
the Indians themselves in the allot
ment of their laud in severalty.
The half-breeds retort that if such
is the case the necessary majority
w as not obtained to secure tin- allot
ment, as their votes were all count
ed in that connection, anil it was
not questioned that they were en
titled then lo the same right a
their full-blooded brothers. Tho
half-breeds seem to have rather tho
best of the argument, but that is all
the good it will do them, as the
whites w ho are waiting for what the
Indians do not iclect will see to it
that the half-breeds do not gut much
