Special by the California Assocutkd Peess.
Washington', April 25. Acting
secretary of the treasury Batchelder
has written the following letter to the
collector of customs at Port Townsend,
"Dear Sir: The department is in
receipt of a letter dated the 19th inst
from the United States attorney gen
eral in which it is stated that thero
arc nineteen Chinamen now in the
custody of the United States marshal
for the state of Washington, who were
arrested and tried for coming into the
United States in violation of the ex
ecutive act oT October 1, 18S8.
"He recommends in accordance
with the suggestions of the secretary
of slate, that said Chinamen, notwith
standing the presumption that they
may have come across the British bor
der, be returned to China on the
ground that they could not be re
turned without payment of a
head tax of S59 each
and because, even if returned to that
country, tho Chinamen would most
probably again evade the vigilance of
the United States officers and come
back to United States territory. The
department approves the recommenda
tion of the attorney general, and you
arc hereby instructed to consult with
the United States marshal, and to take
the necessary steps for having said
nineteen Chinamen returned to China
at the expense of the United States.
It is tho wish of the department that
these Chinamen be returned in as
economical a manner as possible by a
sailing or other vessel bound directly
for China without touching at any
American port en route. Vouchers
for the expense inenrred should Ik?
forwarded for payment."

Washington, April 25. TheBepub
licans of the senate finance committee
are at work on the tariff bill to bo re
ported to the senate as a substitute
for the Mclunley bill. They expect to
have all the work done and bo ready
to report very soon after the Mclvinley
bill passes the house. The under
standing is to have the McKinley bill
pass the houc practically as it is, but
there is no expectation of its becom
ing a law in that form. The senate is
expected to pass quite a different bill
and the whole matif r will be settled
in a conference on the- disagreement
between the two house.;.
It is said that there ha-; never boon
any expectation among the party
leaders that the Mclvinley bill wonlfl
become a law iu anything like tho form
it was reported. It U understood that
the plan was preltv v.vll settled on from
the first, and th it with (his under
standing in view there ww b no se
rious diflicnlty in pa-v-iug a bill
through the house. Thero :? quite a
radical difference of views between the
senate fiuauce committee and Major
McKinley on several points. The
ideas of the ultra-protectionists and
expressed in the Mclvinley bill pro
tests are being received by the ways
and means committee from interests
in various parts of the country, mauy
of which conflict with each other.
Over 500 formal petitions, having
many hundred signatures, have been
received since the bill was reported.
Some of the petitions and protests are
very emphatic in language, but the
committee remains complacent and
content wtth its work.

Chinese Have No IVIiniupr Claim

Special to Thk Astouia.v.J
Walla Walla, April 25. Judge
Willis Sweet in the district court in
tho Mount Idaho case to-day decided
that Chinese have no rights whatever
on minings lands in tlie United States.
The decision was rendered in a suit
brought by Chinese against Patrick
Flynn, et al, who last summer jumped
claims on Moose creek in Elk City,
a mining district held by Chinese for
many years under a bill of sale given
to Chinese by white men. In another
decision involving the Buffalo Hill
claims, Elk City district, white men
having leased said claims to Chinese
and beiug jumped by order of whites,
the judge heltL that a lease of mining
ground to Chinese was invalid and
amounted to abandonment of claim
unless the plaintiff proves that the
Chinese lessees were actually employed
to hold and work said ground on be
half of plaintiffs.
The suit for ejectment was therefore
denied. Upon the announcement
of the decisions parties were
immediately organized to oust Chinese
miners in Pierce City, Elk City and
other mining camp3 in northern Idaho
which are Chinese strongholds. The
decisions are far reaching in their
effects nnd will lead to abandonment
of much ground where Chinese made
a bare subsistence.
