When the question came up in
the Cincinnati Convention on Thurs
day, suggesting an inquiry into the
effect of Chinese immigration, Pierce,
of Massachusetts, moved to strike out
the resolution which he denounced
as a departure from every Repub
lican platform and of the principles of
the Declaration of Independence and
the law of Christian love, which makes
all men, Jew or. Gentile, equal. Sam.
B. Axtell, who happened to be in the
Convention from Mexico, opposed
Pierce, Jones of Nevada followed,
Dutcher, of New York sustained Ax
tell and Jones, but. Curtis, of New
York, who has so. much to say for
Blaine, urged that in the beginning
of the new century the Republicans
of America should not depart from the
principles of the Declaration of Inde
pendence. As his remarks inferred
that anti-Mongolian legislation would
involve this, he was received with
great applause. Bedford, of Colora
do, earnestly sustained the resolution
reported, and pointed out the failure
of the Chinese immigration to assimi

delegate from Tennessee demanded the
previous question, which was-- sus
tained. The question was. taken by
States on Pierce's inotiou to strike- out,
and resulted, yeas, 215; nays, 532.
So the motion to strike out wa$. re
