In reply to a complaint of the Chinese
Minister in Washington the State De
partment has made representations
w hich indicate that the United States
government will not accept consular
certificates as conclusive evidence that
the Chinese subjects presenting them
are merchants or artists, and therefore
entitled to admission in this country.
Recently in New Y'ork, at the instance
of the Chinese inspectors, two Chinese,
who presented certificates from the Con
sul at Havana that they were actors and
not amenable to the' restriction law,
were refused a landing.. Inspector
Scharf insisted that the men were labor
ers and that their certificates were
fraudulent. The detained Chinese took
the matter into court, where it is still
pending under writs of habeas corpus,
and further made complaints to the
Minister, who brought the matter to the
attention of the State Department.
Secretary Gresham called on Secretary
Carlisle for information, and received a
copy of Inspector Scharf 's report, with
an intimation that the inspector, in the
opinion of the Treasury authorities, was
acting in the line of his duty and seemed
not to have exceeded his "authority in
the premises. Secretary Gresham" ac
cordingly has transmitted this informa
tion to" the Chinese Minister. The
Treasury Department's stand on the
question is still further emphasized by
Attorney-General Olney, who has di
rected the United States District Attor
ney at New York to prosecute the cases
on which the Chinese Minister's protest
was based. Mr. Olney gave this direc
tion at the request of Secretary Carlisle.

A r.fllinrkalile Method of Chooalnf
Wife lijr Making rr Apply fur O III re.
Among tho many remarkable propo
sals of marriage which have been pub
lished from time to time in the news
papers, the most unique is the follow
ing, which apjKiurs in our advertising
col minis:
Wanted-A young lady forclerk of tlir county
court of Ellstrt county. It will be Uf(ciry
for her to marry the county Judife. Audrea
County Judgo, Kllrtori. On.
Coining as it does in the dawn of leap
year, this advertisement by Judge J. A.
Roebuck has special force and signifi
cance. Application for the position of
clerk under the terms of the above ad
vertisement would be equivalent, of
course, to a proposal of marriage to
Judge Roebuck. This, in any other
year, might not be considered just the
proper thing for a young lady to do, but
in leap year who shall question her
right to such a course?
But see the cleverness of the judge.
Dy simply mustering up the audacity to
announce in the advertising columns of
the two leading papers in Georgia that
he is anxious for a wife, which is an
entirely praiseworthy aspiration, and
which is the plain English of his clever
advertisement, he has at'a single bound
left the embarrassing position of suitor
and taken the vantage ground of the one
to le wooed.
And see, too, the easy avenue of escape
from undesirable applicanta which is
left to him and the embarrassment
which is saved the young ladies. While
it might bo a trying ordeal for a young
lady to propose marriage even to the
man she loves, in this day of female
stenographers, typewriters and book
keepers there need be no embarrassment
on a lady's part in applying for any re
spectable clerkship. Therefore, when a
young lady has become acquainted with
Judge Roebuck, of the Elbert county
court, and feels that she is willing to
share the honors and emoluments of hi
office, she has only to apply for the posi
tion of clerk in his court.
If the judge fancies the applicant the
bargain can be closed at once, and the
clerk's salary remains in the family. If,
on the contrary, the applicant would
not be acceptable as Mrs. Roebuck,
the judge has only to represent the
duties of the office as being such that
she could not fill them, and regret that
he cannot give her the position. Both
parties thns escape all reference to the
embarrassing part of the business. In
the language of the sporting gentry, the
judge is "on velvet."
Girls, tho case is before you. Augusta
(Ga.) Chronicle.
Co-operation In English Housekeeping.
The English housekeeper, without in
tending to do so, has really taken two
long steps in the direction of co-operative
housekeeping. For in most small
establishments, where perhaps only
three or four servants are kept, no
breadmalring is done at home and the
washing is all put out. The bread pur
chased is not, however, what is tech
nically known to us as "bakers' bread."
The huge loaves are firm aud light, and
similar in grain to what the best home
cook could produce. The various kinds
of hot bread dear to an American's
heart are neither desired nor found on
an Englishman's table, and although
an American housekeeper might con
sider it bad management to buy her
bread, to the English housekeeper the
plan seems the best in the world.
As the English housekeeper is nothing
if not thrifty, without further discussion
it may be taken for granted that co
operation between her and the baker
must mean a saving of pocket for her,
as well as a simplifying of her household
arrangements. In the same way, tho
fact that no washing is done at home,
means a saving both of fuel and of fric
tion in the kitchen. Furthermore,-no
unsightly lines with their burden of
