Washington. May 19 President
Cleveland and his cabinet have arrived
at a de6nite ccnc'usioo as to tbe action
to be taken with reference to tbe Chinese
exclusion act. Tbe president aud mem
bers of his cabinet, who bave charge of
this matter, bave decided to pat tbe law
into operation provided the attorneys for
tbe Chinese Six C 'mpanles do not obtain
a stav bv bringing forward additional
legal obstacles. Attorney R ordan pro
poses, if possible, to carry hack from tbe
supreme court to tbe circuit court, from
which the appeal came, tbe mandate of
the court 10 carry tbe law into effect
This point may not be successful, but is
a very important one I he attorneys
ass time to. tit will fumcientiy ae av
action until congress meets again, find
then it is hoped Oy tbe attorney of the
Chinese, and probably by . tbat govern'
ment's officials, that at least tbat pro
vision of the Geary act providing tor the
deportation of tbe Chinese will be re.
pealed. In the event tbat no further
stay can be secured by tbe attorneys of
the Chinese, there is no longer any ques
tion but what tbe administration will at
tempt to carry out the provisions of toe
Geary ant just as far as it is possible for
them to do with tbe money on band to
pay the necessary expenses. Ibis action
was determined upon at a conference be
tw en President Cleveland and Secreta
ries Carlisle and Gresbam and Attorney-
General OIney yesterday.

when Madame Ulein, a notorious woman
of the town, appeared on tbe scene, and,
with the aid of a mountain howitzer,

miyaiouer will ofier a resolution that all
foreign exhibits be closed till the ques
