F.xtraovdinarv olForts w ill lie made to
secure ud judication uistn the Chinese
exclusion act bv the Supreme Court at
this term. The matter hits boon the
subject of correspondence between the
governments of the Cnited States ami
China, and at tho reouest of the State
Department the Department of Justice
has completed the necessary prelimi
naries in conjunction with tl'io counsel
of the Chinese government and its sub
jects in this country. Under the terms
of the tiearv law a case to determine
the validity of tho act cannot he begun
until the 5th of next mouth. In ordi
nary circumstances it is impossible to
bring a test case belore the Supreme
lourt of tlie I nitod States before ad
journment for the summer recess, but
by the concurrent action of all parties
interested, which has been secured in
view of the important international
character of the ipiostions involved, the
standing of the law will be decided
within a few weeks, thus obviating a
long, tedious and expensive litigation.
The arrangement entered into contem
plates the arrest of a Chinese laborer in
New York for a violation of the terms of
the law, a prompt decision in the lower
courts' and an appeal to the Supreme
Court of the United States, which mav

measure was lobbied through granting

1,000 Chineso to the World's Fair for the
purpose of putting up a Chineso village.
The steamer China has on board nearly
500 Chinese, who are said to be on their
way to the World's Fair. The delicate
question is presented to the Collector of
the port of San Francisco as to who are
entitled to go' to Chicago and who to re
main. So tar as known those Chinese
have no papers to show they are a part
of tho Chinese village. Quai will not ar
rive on the China with the first install
ment of Chinese, lie is expected to fol
low on tho Belgie with the second in
stallment of about 500. Of course, every
Chinaman who arrives during the next
five or six months will assert that he, or
sliOj is on the way to the exposition, and
their landing will follow. In this way it
is feared that from 2,000 to 3,000 Chineso
will get into San Francisco, and there
will be no means of stopping thoin. In
an interview Collector l'helps said: "1
am in a quandary. I don't know what to
