The Chinese Question.
DISCUSSION IN THE CABINET
ON ONGOLLAN LMI-
Special Dispatch hy Steamship Oregon.
"Washington, Jan. 4. Secretary
Evarts to-day brought the chinese
question, prominently to the atten
tion of the president .acdvother
members of the cabinet, and it was
made a topic for general inter
change of views during the greater
portion of the time occupied by
SECRETARY EVARTS VIEWS.
Secretary Evarts, after referring
to the passage of a resolution by
both houses of congress, seven
months ago, recommending the
executive to. institute diplomatic
negotiations on the subject, ex
plained that action on the part of
the state department had been de
layed to. await tho arrival of the
Chinese embass', "whose coming
was expected last summer, it being
believed that time would be saved
and the results more easily accom
plished by conducting negotiations
with them in person. This was
considered desirable, also, in view
of the fact that Minister Seward
had already been granted leave of
absence from Peking to oome to
INDIFFERENCE OF THE CHINESE
Mr. Evarts next remarked that
after the chinese ministers arrival
it was deemed courteous and prop
er to allow them a little time to
become settled before urging the
business upon thoir attention; but
although they have been informed
of our desire to open negotiations
concerning chinese immigration,
and havehad ample opportunities
to respond to the verbal sugges
tions made to them that our gov
ernment would be pleased to re
oejve some expression of their
views upon the subject, they have
manifested no disposition to dis
cuss it, and he, therefore, thought
the matter should, without further
ceremonious waiting, be explicitlv
brought to their attention by a
formal communication requiring
official consideration, and official
OPINIONS OF THE PRESIDENT AND OTHER
MEMBERS OF THE CABINET.
The President and all other
members of the cabinet present
(Secretary Sherman being the only
one absent) agreed to this view,
and were likewise all in perfect
accord with Mr. Evarts, in holding
that great injury is done to our in
dustrial interests, and great danger
threatened to our coun.try in. many
other ways,, by the unrestricted: im
migration of Chinese-for the pur
poses of gafe. and not to establish
homes and assimilate with our peo
ple, and" our institutions, like other
immigrants; It "was, therefore,
unanimously agreed that some
check ought- to. be imposed upon
this influx, and ascertain whether
the provisions of the Burlingame
treaty stand in the way of congres
sional action on the subject, al
though it was considered by Mr.
Eyarts and others that congress
has constitutional power to over
ride these obstacles.
REMOVAL OF- THE CHINESE- HIGHLY
It was next agreed on ail hands
to be highly desirable to. remove
them, if possible, by diplomatic
negotiations. At aU events, in the
opinion of the President and cabi
net, this course should; be fairly
tried. Secretary Evarts- was there
fore authorized and instructed to
make the effort with the- utmost
possible emphasis. an,d urgency and
at the earliest possible date..
THE EXECUTION WILL SUSTAIN ANY AC
TION OF REPUBLICANS.
In the course of the discussion
some reference was made to the
political aspects of the question,
and it was quite evident that the
administration will privately have
no objection whatever to any ac
tion which the republican members
of; the bouse and senate may take
to secure for the republican party
an access of; political power by
carrying through some measure
that would restrict chinese immi
gration by direot legislative action.
