THE CHINESE QUESTION.
GREAT SPEECH OF
HON. F. Kl. FSXLEY,
OF SAX FRAFCISCO.
o ,. :
We present the following speech for Hie
serious consideration of every white voter
in this State. It wa.s made in San Fran
cisco, by Hon. Frank M. Pixley, one of
the oldest and most influential Republicans
in California. He, with four oUier.-s.ignel
the first call in that Slate for a Republican
Convention, and has. until recently, been
one of its most able and warm supporters,
and has frequently held positions of honor
and trust. The Radical party of Oregon
is pledged in favor of the- further contin
uance of this infamous importation. The
Democracy are against it. Which will
you support on next Monday? Read the
speech and ponder well.
The hall of the Mechanics' Institute
was crowded to its utmost capacity last
evening, to hear the? lecture of the Hon.
F. M. l'ixley, on the Chinese problem.
A tew ladies wers pro.;
was introduced bv the
tmt. I he lecturer
President of the
Institute. Mr. Ilaliide.
Mr. l'ixley said : I do not believe in
the universal brotherhood ot man and
fatherhood of (iod.'; It takes a great,
.tk'ft) of laith to believe that all who olaim
- to be human were created by Cod for
men. Some of them might have been
intended for apes and monkeys. Many
think it best to bring Chinese here, and
" talk of the brotherhood of man and
fatherhood of God. and that the Chinese
O have the same right as ourselves to
coiie hero and get a living. Those who
talli of the necessity of cheap labor are
not tne metiQwiio labor them.-elves ; they
ate those who employ others, and want
the cheairest. Others say it is a question
between the Irish and Chinese, and they
feel like 'he woman whose husband was
fighting with the bear they don't care
which whips. But I tcil you it is not a
question between the Irish and the
Chinese, noP between the Germans and
the Chinese. It is a contest between the
idolatry of the old world and t!u Chris
tianityvbf the new ; between the symbol
ism of Confucius and the religion of
tiieiil itittueu importation' can ik
As it required a great war to rid the
country of slavery, so do I believe if this
encouragement of Chinese emigration is
continued, it will bring ruin to the coun
try. They will come over here in pwartns:
If, as Mr. Casserly said, they are skillful,
industrious, etc.. then they are the more
dangerous. But I am opposed to them
w hellui,stiperior or inferior. They are a
differ.cn.tP race and color. We do not
wantuto "mix with them. The types of
the different families are as distinct now
as they were centuries ago.
and they will be kept dis
tinct. It is the same with the animals.
Their instinct keeps the different races of
animals distinct. The Chinese are so un
like its in everything that they cannot
come unless they absorb or drive us out,
or we become a hybrid race. They num
ber five hundred millions, and they will
come in immense numbers and over
whelm us. Bat
the roi.iTic.vr. (rtesTio.v ls thk ciikat oxi:.
One hundred thousand Chinese immi
grants have come here in twenty years.
There is to-dav 72,000 of them amomr us.
52,00;) of which are males who would be
vot -rs if they had the right of suffrage.
We have opposed them with hostile legis
lation, and in various ways shwon out
opposition to their coming, yet ifcey still
continue to increa-e among us. Cease
this opposition, subsidize the steamship
line that brings them and encourage their
coming, and they will pour in upon us
i.iki: thi; i.ocrsrs of kgytt.
This is no idle fear. Strike down the
barrierrs a,fcd bring them here in compe
tition, aad they will drive every white
laborer Trom the country. Look at the
0 women in China. In infancy they ore
destroyed if too numerous in the family.
As they grow up they are sold into slave
ry, and live a degraded life. Go through
the lanes of this city, where they are con-
gregated. if you "dare, and "see their
degradation and infamy. We want no
such creatures here to poison society. I
Wits right the other night when I said if
there was no legal way to prevent their
being brought here to 'fiil our hospitals,
and to communicate loathsome disease to
others, I would be one to
GJTAKE A TOUCH IN DAYLIGHT AND DURN
The steamers at our wharves that brought
them. Cheers. Mr. Pixley then read
from a book a description of the Chinese
O " tind their habits, customs, morals, relig
ion, government, etc., which was not very
flattering to them. He read it, he said,
to show their social life. He then pro
ceeded tooay: Under the inevitable
striking out of the word "whiW' from
the Naturalization laws and he believed
it was inevitable, for the Republican
q leaders were going to do it I cannot s,e
why Chinamen may not vote and strike
down our system of government, and our
system of civilization and society, and
introduce their own. I can see no rea
son why Mongol and Tartars, might not
sit in the President's chair, and in the
halls of legislation, and rnSUo laws for us.
The industrial question is an important
one in considering this subject. We do
not want cheap labor, we want
CHEAP MONEY AND CHEAP I-AHOU.
Cheftp labor i.- a heresy. Immense
cheering. No Government ever flour
ished under cheap labor. livery country
paying high prices for labor is prosperous.
For us to say we want immigration, and
form immigration societies asking Euro
peans to conie here, and tell them we pay
Obigh prices for labor, and bid them leave
their homes and come to the great Repub
lic, where there are homes and farms for
them all ; at the same time re are givin
subsidies to steamship lines to bring men
here who work for ten cents a day that
o is not the way to induce the white "race to
come and make their homes anions us. f
you wast cheap labor, give increased sub
sidies to the sieam lines, and send to Asia
for it. The much talk of
CONFLICT r.ETWEEN CAPITAL AND I.AP.OR,
Jle said, was a good deal of a myth. Capi
tal was useless without labor ; labar must
starve without capital. If he had a mil
lion ducats that very night, of what use
would they be to him without the laborer:
whereas, labor would at least support it
self by the fruits of the earth, and in that
respect occupied a higher position, and
was more independent than capital. As
to the characteristics of
THELAI?OREr.S COMING IN UPON CSj.
Tor 5.000 years" they have, been in the
habit of living on rice. It had bee a and
was now their staple food, and they could
do a good day's work upon it alone. But
tho white laborer must have his meat or
he can't work. A Chinese laborer's food
need not cost hha more than seven to ten
cents day, while a wLite laborer could
pot live on less than seventeen or twenty
icents, at the lowest ett'iuate. Uvea the
JU-J.JIU.lll l.JL.. ""
food of the convicts in the prisons, con
sisting solely of bread and meat, costs
twenty cents per day. It was useless to
think of white laborers
COMPETING WITH CHINESE.
They could not do it. He had known men
heartless enough to say : " Let them com
pete ; let them live on rice, then, if they
are not able to earn more.'' But they
could not do it; they would starve and
die. if they attempted it. The Chinese had
been in the habit of living upon the water,
crowded upon their river boats, and could
live like rats in a hole. The white la
borer, with his respectable wife and his
girl of fourteen years of age. perhaps. and
his boy, could not live and eat and sleep
in one room. The girl must have her sep
arate room, anil the boy must have his
separate room, or they could not consider
themselves or be considered moral and
leligious. The American man must have
his three or four rooms, or he does not
feel respectable ; whereas, the Chinese
would bank fifty together in an apartment
with a brazier in the center, at which ali
the cooking would be done all .this in a
space th.it would hardly be sutiieient for
four of our citizens. There was a gentle
man, a friend of his. a cigar manufacturer
in this city, who had over fifty Chinese
bunking together in a loft over a stable
which was only hsrge enough for six
horses, lie would put it
TO I'lUH'EUTY HOLDER,
How many houses would the 1.300 China
men, who came iu on the previous day's
steamer, occupy' How different it would
have been hud l.oOO white laborers
marched up our streets with, at least, their
live hundred virtuous wives, beside them,
and their two hundred, stalwart sous.
They would have established themselves
in offices in time, built or occupied houses,
or taken farms ; while those 1.300 China
men that had arrived, were at that very
time reeking and iestering in their dirty
dens, and it they were capable of any
sense of thankfulness for the termination
of their voyage, were even then worship
ping their Josses. And, said he, Ameri
cans meet all that comes, standing and
seeing this plague of lice, or worse, come
upon them, eating up their substance. and
bringing thousands of men to the brink of
WITHIN Till: LAST TWO YEAK3
Thirty thousand laboring people had left
this State ; they had gone away, and were
not coming back to compete with China
men, which meant only death, starvation,
ignominy and disgrace. No country
could prosper unless its producers were
consumers also. But those Chinese had
brought enough rice and opium with
IhenMo keen their bellies full and heads
i drunk for a year to come. Thirteen hun-
dred while men would produce something,
ami would spend it m the country. here
as all the Chinese population did not give
employment to ten white men. Instead,
they stole the bread of 1,300 white labor
ers, whom they displaced from the labor
market of this State. That steamer on
Friday had brought 1.300 Chinese. There
would" soon be two steamers a month
that would be 2. G00 per month. 32,000 a
year. even while being opposed by adverse
legislation and by public sentiment ; but
if this barrier were bioken down, there
would be 80.000 next year, and MO.000 the
year after that. urtil they felt strong
enough to defy Christian civilization, and
bring over the'r hordes to overrun this
land like Timonr and his hosts. It ?-as
absurd to talk of competing with them.
AUK THE CHINESE STEALING THE LAISOU ?
Now let them consider, said he, whether
the Chinese vi
re really stealing the labor.
or, m otner words, tne broad trom white
men. When he came to this country first,
in 1819. . he and the others went to the
eastern slope of the Sierras and dug for
gold ; some got it, others didn't. Well,
whenever they began to pay less than
31 or .? a day, they were abandoned, and
the Chinese came and took thetn, and at
this day the Chinese formed the real pop
ulation of the mining counties of Cali
fornia. In every county that he had
known. po erty was staved off bv flu
wash-tub. Was the husband helpless, or
idle, or dissolute, the woman took in wash
ing, and supported herself and family.
The invasion of Chinamen had deprived
many a table of the bread that mitrht have
been earned at the wash-tub. How was
it with cigars '! A few years ago Germ ins
made all the cigars in San Francisco; to
day there was not o German who roied a
cigarette. Chinamen made them all.
Matches, slippers all made by Chinamen.
Woolen factories, with Chinese almost in
entire control. Only a few days ago eight
men had been discharged fiom one of
these factories. One of tho men. with a
wife and children wholly dependent on
the 82 a dav which he got as wage i. of
fered to take SI 50. : No;" SI ; No."
for they had hired Chinamen at eighty
cents a day.
Rope-making was in the hands of the
Chinese ; doors, sashes and frames they
were beginning to make : tailoring the
largest trr.de in this county, was filled up
with Chinese workmen ; at boot and shoe
making there were now 250 Chinese at
work in this city. There were the do
mestic servants ; they manufactured the
fireworks; an 1 it would not be long be
fore the sewing machine would be in
their hands. There was no reason why
they should not set type for 15 cents per
1000 ems. as they are now set for sixiv
cents, and he did not know that some of
thorn could not be found to edit papers
as well as some were edited now.
The speaker said that in the first place
the idea of the l iboring classes at the
present time was probably exaggerated.
But yet hardly a day passed that he did
not have some poor man or woman stand
ing before him pleading for work ; not
begging, bat only seeking for an oppor
tunity to earn some bread. lie thought
that Government peculiarly unfoitmiate
that could not provide labor and pay bu
tt. It was
THE PVTY OF THE GOVERNMENT
To make the most sweeping laws until
every man and every woman was pro
vided with work, and" he said were he

leform the laws even up to the point, if it
were necessary, of making every rich
man divide and divide his propertv again
