TEXT OF NEW TREATY.
The Terms of the Instrument
Negotiated By ,
MESSRS GRESHAM AND YANG YU.
Existing Lan i for the Exclusion of Chi
nese In No Manner Interfered With
it Will Not Abrogate the Geary and
McCreary Registration Acts.
, WABHiNOTON.When the fret mud
dled report of the new Chinese treaty
was published Senators and Represent
atives who favored the restriction of
Chinese immigration took alarm. They
thought it meant the undoing of all that
had been done in the past ten years to
. shut out the torrents of Asiatic invasion.
Acting on this idea, many of them
, criticised what they understood to be its
provisions, but now that the text of the
treaty is known there has been some
thing like a revulsion of feeling. It now
appears that the essence of the treaty is
the establishment of reciprocal relations
between the two nations in regard to
prescribing terms ou which- the people
of one nation may reside in the other,
and for exclusion where either may deem
it wise. - .
It has long been known that the Chi
nese wanted to . remove the stigma of
having her people subjected to exclusion
laws and residence regulations by this
country, to which the people of no other
nation were subjected, and to which
Americans in China were not subjected.
The best efforts of Chinese diplomacy
have for years been directed to securing
the removal of what the Chinese rulers
regarded as an invidious and humiliat
ing distinction. By this treaty this dis
tinction is removed. By it Chinese and
Americans are placed on the broad level
of equality in respect to exclusion from
or residence in the alien country. .
To secure these reciprocal relations
China has agreed to recognize the pres
ent laws of the United States relating to
Chinese as of full force, and to cease pro
testing against their enforcement. .
'. The President and Secretary Gresham,
on the other hand, to remove the fric
tion between the two nations and pro
mote commercial intercourse (for it is
understood a commercial treaty will fol
low if this one be ratified), have agreed
to these reciprocal relations. The real
question in the minds of many is whether
the game is worth the candle.
Following is the full text of the treaty :
Whereas, On the 17th day of Novem
ber, A. D. 1880, and of Kwangsii, the
sixth year, tenth moon, fifteenth day, a
treaty was concluded between the United
States and China for the purpose of reg
ulating, limiting or suspending the com
ing of Chinese laborers to anti their res
. idence in the United States ; and
Whebeas, The government of China,
in view of the antagonism and much
deprecated and serious disorders to
which the presence of Chinese laborers
has given rise in certain parts of the
' United States, desires to prohibit the
emigration of such laborers from China
to the United States ; and,
. Whereas, The two governments de
sire to co-operate in prohibiting such
emigration and to strengthen in other
ways the bonds of friendship between
the two countries ; and,
Whereas, The two governments are
desirous of adopting reciprocal measures
for the better protection of citizens or
subjects of each within the jurisdiction
of the other ; now, therefore, the Presi
dent of the United States has appointed
Walter Q. Gresham, Secretary of State
of the United States, as his plenipoten
tiary, and his Imperial Majesty, the Em
peror of China, has appointed Yang Yu,
an officer of the second rank, sub-Director
of the Court of Sacrificial Wor
ship and Envoy Extraordinary and Min
ister Plenipotentiary, and said plenipo
tentiaries having exhibited their respect
ivn full nowers. found to be in due form
and good form, have agreed upon the.
following articles :
Article"! The high contracting parties
agree that for a period of ten years, be
ginning with the date of exchange or
ratification of this convention, the com
ing, except under conditions hereinafter
specified, of Chinese laborers shall be
Article II The preceding article shall
not apply to the return to the United
States of any registered Chinese laborer
' who has a lawful wife, child or parent in
the United States, or property therein
of the value of $1,000, or debts of like
amount due him and pending settlement ;
nevertheless every such Chinese laborer
shall before leaving the United States
deposit as a condition of his return with
the Collector of customs of the district
from which he departs a full description
in writing of his famil v or property debts
as aforesaid, and shall be furnished by
said Collector with such certificates of
his right to return under this treaty as
the laws of the United States shall here
after prescribe and not inconsistent with
the provisions of this treaty, and should
the written description aforesaid be
proved to be false, the right of return
thereunder or of continued , residence
after such return in each case shall be
forfeited, and such right of return to the
United States shall be exercised within
one year from the date of leaving the
United States, but such right of return
to the United States may oe extended
an additional period not exceeding one
year. In cases where by reason of sick
ness or other cause of disability beyond
his control such Chinese laborer shall be
rendered unable sooner to return which
facts shall be fully reported to the Chi
nese Consul at the port of departure and
by him certified to the satisfaction of the
Collector of port at which such Chinese
subject shall land in the United States,
and no such Chinese laborer shall be
permitted to enter the United States by
land or sea without producing to the
proper officer of customs the return cer
tificate herein required.
Article III The provisions of this
convention shall not affect the right at
present enjoyed by Chinese subjects be
ing officials', teachers, students, mer
chants or travelers for curiosity or pleas
ure, but not laborers, of coming to the
United States and residing therein. To
entitle such Chinese subjects as are above
described to admission into the United
States they may produce a certificate
from their government or the govern
ment where they last resided, vised by
the diplomatic or Consular representa
tive of the United States in the country
or port whence they depart.
Article IV In pursuance of Article
III of the immigration treaty between
the United States and China, signed at
Peking on the 17th day of November,
1880, it is hereby understood and agreed
that Chinese laborers, or Chinese of any
other class, either permanently or tem
porarily residing in the United States,
shall have for the protection of their
persons and property all the rights that
are given by the laws of the United
States to citizens of the- most favored
nations, excepting the right to become
citizens, and the government of the
United States reaffirms its obligations,
a i stated in said Article III,-to exert all
its power to secure protection to persons
and property of all Chinese subjects in
the United States.
Article V The government of the
United States having by act of Congress,
approved May 5, 1892, as amended by
the act approved May 5, 1893, required
all Chinese laborers lawfully within' the
limits of the United States before the
first named act to be registered as in
said acts provided, with a view of offer
ing them better protection, the Chinese
government will not object to the en
forcement of such acts, and reciprocally
the government of the United States
recognizes the right of the government
of China to enact and enforce similar
laws or regulations for the registration,
free of charge, of laborers, skilled or un
skilled (not merchants, as defined by said
acts of Congress), citizens of the United
States in China', whether residing within
or without treaty ports, and the govern
ment of the United States agrees that
within twelve months from the date of
the exchange and ratification of this
convention, and annually thereafter, it
will furnish to the government of China
registers and reports showing the full
name, age, occupation and number or
place of residence of all other citizens of
the United States, including mission
aries, residing both within and without
the treaty ports of China, not including,
however, diplomatic and other officers of
the United States residing in China upon
official business, together with their
body and household servants.
Article VI This convention shall re
main in force for a period of ten years,
beginning with the date of the exchange
of ratification, and if six months before
the expiration of the said period of ten
years neither government shall formally
have given .notice of its termination to
the other, it shall remain in full force
for another like period of ten years.

ANOTHER DEFICIENCY. - '
Additional Appropriations . Needed for
' the United States Courts.
Washington. Acting Secretary Cur
tis of the Treasury Department has sent
to the House a communication from the
Attorney-General calling attention to
the immediate necessity of additional
appropriations for the fiscal year of 1894
for the expenses of United States Courts
as follows: . '
Fees of witnesses .200,000
Fees ot jurors 80,000
Support ot prisoners 275,000
United States Marshals, the Attorney
General says, are fearful the Judges will
adjourn the courts unless money is fur
nished for jurors and witnesses. He also
says there is not a district where a United
States Court is held that is not in need
of money for the support of , United
States prisoners. The jailers are needy
men. They supply their own money for
food for prisoners and guards in protect
ing them, and they ought to be paid
promptly. j ; -
Funds for a New Railroad.
Whatcom. Letters have been re
ceived at Blaine from Promoter Spencer,
now in Chicago, stating that funds have
been raised for the construction of the
Blaine and Eastern railroad as soon as
the subsidy conditions have been com
plied with. : . '
BIG RAILROAD DEAL.
Great Northern to Take Pos
session of the Oregon,
RAILWAY AND NAVIGATION.
To Enter Portland Via Spokane Local
Railway Officials Are Discussing the
Probability of the Consummation of
Such a Deal Other Coast News.
Portland. For some'days past a ru
mor has been steadily gaining ground
that the Northwest will soon be the
scene of a big railroad deal. Like all
such rumors, it has been impossible to
trace it to any authority, but its very
probability has not only interested rail
road men, but has given them confidence
to believe the change will be made. The
deal, if consummated, will materially
change the complexion of the railroad
situation on the North Pacific Coast.
The rumor, and nothing more can be
claimed for it, is that' the Great North
ern will soon take possession of the Ore
gon Railway and Navigation. It has
been reported that the Union Pacific has
hypothecated its Oregon Railway and
Navigation holdings to Russell Sage for
ready cash. Mr. Sage is President of
the Iowa Central, of which E. McNeil,
formerly General Manager of the Pacific
Division of the Union Pacific, is General
Manager. A few days ago Mr. McNeil
was in this city, accompanied by Samuel
Hill, the son-in-law of the Great North
ern magnate and Vice-President of that
road. They were'in and out frequently,
and appeared to devote most of their at
tention to the Union Pacific lines be
tween here and Spokane, inspecting the
various branches and familiarizing them
selves with the business and possibilities
of the Columbia river route. If the deal
is made, it will therefore give the Great
Northern an entrance to this city by the
way of Spokane, while the Union Pacific
will come in via Huntington as at pres
ent. It will also necessitate a thorough
change in the organization of the Oregon
Railway and Navigation, and will . give
Portland the general offices ot the line.
i . ' '
. CALIFORNIA'S CAPITAL.
The Bill for Its Removal is Declared
San Francisco. The Supreme Court
has rendered its decision in the suit of
H, P. Livermore vs. E. G. Waite, Secre
tary of State. The decision is a most
important one, involving the question of
the right of the Legislature to order the
removal of the State capital. It will be
remembered that during the closing
hours of the last session an act was
passed delegating the power in question
to the Governor, Attorney-General and
Secretary of State. In the decision just
given the Supreme Court holds that the
act is of no force and effect. It is inop
erative for the reason that the Legisla
ture could not delegate its flower to any
individual or set of individuals. The
sovereign power rests alone in the hands
of the people, and it is for them alone to
settle the question involved. The deci
sion was written by Justice Harrison,
Justice Paterson filing a concurring opin
ion. The views taken were agreed to by
all the other members of the court. ; ,
New Telephone Companies.
Prescott, A. T. Articles of incorpo
ration of six different telephone compa
nies have been filed with the Recorder
of this county, the outgrowth of the ex
piration of the patent on the iieil tele
phone. The parent company is called
the Standard Telephone Company, and
the subincorporations coverall the States
and Territories. The incorporators are
Thurlow Weed Barnes, Allen T. Nye and
Charles Strause of New York. The com
panies are incorporated under the laws
of Arizona on account of their being
more favorable and less expensive than
any other State or Territory. The stock
of incorporations is not taxed in this
Territory. - '
Puget Sound Board of Health.
Port Townsend. At a meeting of the
Puget Sound Board of Health Frank A.
Bartlett was elected President and Lin
coln Brooks Secretary. The credentials
of C. F. Seal, Governor McGraw's ap
pointee to succeed R. C. Hill, whose
term expired recently, were accepted,
and he was installed as a member. The
third member. is Captain L. B. Hastings.
As a matter of form the appointment of
Dr. Louis T. Seavey as health officer was
ratified. At an early meeting Collector
Saunders will be in attendance for the
purpose of perfecting arrangements for
precluding the possibility of disease be
To Mine In Alaska.
San Francisco. An adventurous
party of California miners left here in
the schooner C. D. Ladd, bound for
Cook's Inlet and the Upper Yukon in
search of gold. There were fifteen men
in the party, and two of them were ac
companied by their wives. There were
plenty of guns and ammunition for a
long outing. . None of the miners expect
to be back inside of seven months, and
some of them not for a year .or more.
The latter expect to explore the remotest
parts of the Yukon. :
Wilcox Given Twenty Years.
Seattle. W. A. Wilex was sen
tenced to twenty years in the peniten
tiary for the murder of Mrs. Charlotte
Fetting in this city last September. The
evidence showed Wilcox to be guilty,
but the jury found a verdict in the sec
ond degree. Judge Humes gave him the
full limit of the law after denying a mo
tion for a new trial.
Herbert's suggestion to give the name
of historic Kearsarge to the next battle
ship of the navy is received everywhere
with marked approval.
Senator Morgan, Chairman of the
Committee on Foreign Relations, says
he will move soon to "take the Chinese
treaty up. From conferences with other
Senators he is satisfied it will be ratified.
Secretary Morton has issued a circular
in answer to inquiries, saying the gov
ernment rain-making experiments did
not -produce such results as to justify
the belief they could be developed into
any commercial importance.
Many Senators expect to obtain in
creases in the river and harbor bill over
the amounts reported in the , House.
Representative Hermann says most of
the Oregon appropriations are more than
20 per cent above the original amounts
allowed by the committee.
Speaker Crisp has telegraphed Gov
ernor'. Northen, declining the appoint
ment as Senator. In his telegram the
Speaker says a very large majority of the
Democratic members of the House had
united in the request that he continue
to serve for the remainder of the session
as Speaker ; although deeply grateful to
the Governor and sacrificing a cherished
ambition, a sense of duty compels him
to decline the appointment.
The Assistant Secretary of the Interior
has rendered a decision which will great
ly enlarge the pension rolls. It will ad
mit "to pensions a large number of in
sane, idiotic and permanently helpless
minor children of deceased soldiers,
whose pensions had ceased by the chil
dren attaining the age of 16 years, prior
to the act of June 27,' 1890, the decision
holding that the act of 1890 has the ef
fect of restoring these dependent per
sons to the roll during life or the contin
uance of disability. .
Representative Boen of Minnesota has
introduced a bill for the reduction of
compensation of persons in the govern
ment service. The bill recites that the
unit value of money is decreasing, and
that private wages are falling, while pub
lic salaries are kept up to their old fig
ures. It further states that the ' people
are being borne down by the " incompe
tency, dishonesty or corruptness of those
who control the affairs of our govern
ment." It provides that salaries from
$1,000 to $5,000 shall be reduced 25 per
cent; those from $5,000 to $20,000, 33K
per cent ; all above $20,000, 50 per cent.
The River and Harbor Committee of
the House has practically completed the
river and harbor bill for this Congress,
though there may be some minor changes
therein when the bill is finally passed
on by the committee. The bill makes a
total appropriation approximating $9,-
900,000. This is $2,000,000 less than the
appropriation for the current fiscal year,
while the estimates before the commit
tee amounted to $38,770,611. In addi
tion to this amount carried by the regu
lar river and harbor bill the sundry civil
bill contains items aggregating $8,300,-
000 for contract work on rivers and har
bors. The total amount available there
fore for the' next fiscal year is nearly
Behring Sea affairs absorbed the at
tention of the Cabinet the other day.
and at the end of the meeting active
steps had been commenced looking to
the protection of fur seals and the ap
prehension of poachers regardless of the,
flag they fly. It is said upon the most'
credible authority that the State Depart
ment does not expect to accomplish any
thing with Great Britain under a treaty
supplemental to the award of the court
of arbitration, for the reason that the
only proposition advanced has been met
with a counter proposition tending to
weaken the force and effect of that
award. The President and the depart
ment have also practically abandoned
all hope of securing a continuance of the
modus Vivendi, and if this shall prove to
be the case, the President has decided to
act under" the authority of the act 'of
Congress of February, 1893. The whole
subject was discussed, Gresham laying
before the Cabinet a new bill incorporat
ing certain regulations in line with the
award, the passing of which would indi
cate to England that the United States
desired the co-operation she had prior to
the meeting of the court of arbitration
pledged herself to give.
The Senate Committee on Foreign Re
lations has under consideration a bill
looking to a reorganization of the Nica
ragua Canal Company, and friends of
the enterprise in the Senate are hopeful
of securing a favorable report at an early
day. A subcommittee to consider the
details of the question and prepare a
bill, it is understood, has submitted a
report to the full committee recommend
ing the adoption of Senator Morgan's
bill with some amendments, i This bill
provides for a reorganization of the ca
nal company with 1,000,000 shares at
$100 each ; for the issuance of bonds, the
payment of which will be guaranteed by
the national treasury ; for the cancella
tion of the stock of the old company ;
and prescribes the method of procedure
under the reorganization act. It is not
supposed the Dill will go through the
committee without opposition. How
ever, there is thought to be some major
ity for the bill in the committee, and
there is little doubt the bill will go on
the calendar with a favorable report.
Friends of the bill assert a scheme for
building a canal across the isthmus un
der the auspices of the United States
has made material progress in public es
timation within the past few years. At
tention is called to the fact by a member
of the committee that the President had
changed from his attitude of hostility,
which he occupied nine years ago, to one
of open advocacy, and that the Legisla
tures of the various States and Cham
bers of Commerce of several large cities
have memorialized Congress in the in
terest of the enterprise, advocating the
building of the canal by the government
or with its support. It is also asserted
that the House Committee, which origi
nally opposed the measure, has changed
in sentiment and is now in a fair way to
report a bill similar to the Morgan bill.
The Rapid Advance in Scien
;j tific Husbandry.
AN AGGRESSIVE IMPROVEMENT.
New Methods That Have Been Adopted
: by Progressive Farmers A Higher
and Better System of Agriculture is
Generally Displayed. '
J. F. Elsom In Orange Judd Farmer.
The agricultural processes as ordina
rily observed in this country in fact,
have been followed since we became
known as an agricultural people have
had a very exhausting effect on the soil,
and could with the utmost propriety be
denominated the old system of agricult
ure in contradistinction to the new sys
tem to be seen in many places, especially
where poverty and illiteracy, the former
handmaidens", have been superseded by
intelligence and wealth, the present as
sociates of no mean proportion of our
It is indeed gratifying to read the re
ports from farmers in so many parts of
the country, in some instances in sections
which have suffered from the old system
of impoverishment of the land, showing
that farm operations have been brought
into increased value and profit by this
aggressive and progressive improvement,
reduced farms having been reclaimed
and enhanced in value while supporting
the family and adding to the wealth of
the farmer, in some instances the prod
ucts having been raised even above the
amount produced in the days when all
nature's elements were in the soil undis
turbed and uncalled for.
As positive as I am that this condition
of things is becoming more and more
apparent, I am equally positive that ag
ricultural departments of our papers
stand second to agricultural societies-Tin
fact as well as name in furthering
this improvement. They have set forth
the principles and practical details of
the new system of agriculture in all its
varied conditions, departments and sur
roundings. They have demonstrated the
advantages resulting from the judicious
application of new principles as well as
manures, from good tillage, from proper
rotation of crops, from the assistance to
be derived from root culture, from the
substitution for naked fallows of clover
and other fallow crops. 1 .
All these means are to be considered
as new methods, and have become gen
erally adopted in connection with ample
drainage, together with the mechanical
advantages to be derived lrom subsoil
plowing, and the chemical results of sys
tems of artificial irrigation. Notwith
standing all that has been achieved al
ready, 1 believe that the improvement
has but fairly started. Many of the
processes which may and will be resorted
to in carrying out and practically dem
onstrating the new system of agriculture
are yet to a great degree mysteries to a
large proportion of the farmers of the
United States farming in other coun
tries I am not interested in, only in a
general way and in so far as their failures
may serve as guides ior our own people
although familiarly known and long em
ployed by their more enterprising neigh
bors, often ostracized by them merely
because thev farm by rule and not in ac
cordance with the phases of the moon or
signs of tne zodiac, who with less nat
ural advantages perhaps are better re
warded for their labors. Such has been
the agricultural improvement noticeable
in many sections that the surrounding
country shows the effects by better roads,
better ' buildings, better fences, better
stock, aye, and better people.
The great States bordering on the five
Great Lakes have increased their pro
ductive capacity as shown by statistics
20 per cent during the last decade, 2 per
cent per annum by virtue of reading and
profiting by what others have done or
failed to do. The system inculcated by
the. new principles has, wherever fol
lowed up, increased the productive ca
pacity of the farms everywhere, some
times more than double. This means an
enhanced value of at least 100 per cent.
It has in short made every acre of land
upon which it has been practiced ten
years, lying contiguous to markets of
transportation facilities, worth much
more for agricultural purposes. -
The zeal which apparently pervades
this entire country for a higher and bet
ter system of agriculture is displayed in
all geological and other departmental
reports published by the government, in
the agricultural surveys of several States,
together with the liberal concessions
made by some of the agricultural socie
ties for the encouragement of everything
tending to improve and advance agri"
cultural interests. All have borne the
