Tho Nntr C'lilnene Treaty,
It is unolllcially learned that the new
Chinese treaty has four provisions :
l'i ml It defines Chinese lalxirers. and
states that all laborers hereafter shall ho
excluded from entering into tho United
States, except two classes, namely, those
who show that they have property iu the
United States to the value of $1.U00 when
thoy departed, and secondly, those who
leave a wife and family In this country,
it is provided however, In thu first pro
vision of the treaty, that Chinese labor
ers who leave this country for China
must establish these two acts to tho sat
isfaction of tho American ollicer before
thoy depart. '
'iho counsel of thu Chinese minister
stated that tho ground upon which a
writ of baboon corpus might issue was
limited. Also that 11 Chinese arriving In
this country and claiming admission and
securing a writ of halcus corpus, could
make proof of only one thing to entitle
him to land, and that is that ho had al
ready proved to tho collector of tho jxrt
from which ho had departed before he left

Ono ile.ia1tt afternoon not long ago I
