principal argument in its favor being it

fewer cars and consequently fewer em

Judge Morrow has denied bail to the

This makes a curious complication. The
Chinese are at present confined in the
Alameda county jail, though according
to Judge Boss' decision they cannot be iu thev hare committed no
rime. They cannot be deported because
of their appeal to the Supreme Court,
and they cannot go free because of that
appeal. The Chinese will bring Buit
against Marshal Gard for false imprison
ment. If he releases them, he will be
Ulilty of contempt of court of the north

fused them bail. If he does not release
them, he is liable for damages on the
ruling of the District Court of Southern
California that they are not criminals
and cannot be imprisoned.

Treasury to inform that body 'to what
extent the appropriations heretofore
made for the enforcement of the Chinese
exclusion act have been expended and
what portions are now available, and
whether in his opinion it is necessary
that a further appropriation be made by
Congress in order to carrv out the law.
and if so, how much, the Secretary has
sent his reply, inclosing a statement
snowing tne appropriations and expend
itures since im. It was shown that the
balance available the 7th instant for the
current year amounted to $.'l,502, which
includes the unexpended balance of the
appropriation for the last fiscal vear,
$20.61)2. It is estimated that $38,000
will be required to pay the salaries and
necessary expenses of the officers regu
larly omployed to enforce the exclusion
act for the remainder of tlie current
year, leaving an estimated balance avail
able for the deportation of Chinese found
to lie unlawfully in the United States of
$25,502. It appears by tlie census report
of 18H0 that tlie Chinese population of
the United States in that vear was 106,
688. Of this number 1)5,477 were in the
Pacific Btates and Territories. The num
ber who registered under the act of Mav
5, 1802, was 13,243, leaving 03,444 who
failed to avail themselves of the privi
leges of the act. Assuming that about
10 per cent of these would lie entitled to
j exemption, the Secretary findB there

cost for transporting Chinamen from San
Francisco to Hong Kong is K35 per cap

rest, trial and inland transportation
would also average, he says, not less
than $35 per capita. If, therefore, all of
those who did not register should be
transported to China, the cost involved
would aggregate in round numbers about
$6,000,000. This, the Secretary says, in
his opinion would be a moderate amount
to carry out the act. He was unable to
furnish an accurate estimate of the num
ber who might lie deported during the
remainder of tlie current fiscal year, the
matter being largely dependent upon the
action ol tne courts. Assuming, now

In regard to the account of the inter
view between Secretary Gresham and
the Chinese Minister, In which Secre
tary Gresham is said to have told the
Chinese Minister that the administra
tion did not intend to enforce the exclu
sion law, It 1b stated at the Stato Depart
ment that, whatever the views of the
President and Secretary Gresham might
be in the matter, they would not give
assuranco to tlie Chinese government
that a law would not be enforced while
it remained on the statute hooks, and
that therefore the statement attributed to
Secretary Gresham was inaccurate. It
is understood that Mr. Groshain merely
assured the Minister of the good will of
the United States toward tlie Chinese
government and honed the nuesti nn uf
exclusion would be arranged in a satis-
iBCtory mannor, so that the amicable re
lations between the two governments
would not be disturbed.
