ISTHMIAN CANAL RIGHTS.
Nicaragua and Costs Rica Negotiating; with
Washington, April 9. It is under
stood that Mr. Corea, the Nicaragua
minister here, has forwarded to his
government a proposition as to the
price the United States would be likely
to pay for Nicaragua canal rights, the
proposition having been submitted to
the minister by Secretary Hay. Secre
tary Hay's proposition is said to be in
the nature of counter proposal to that
set out in the canal protocol-drafted by
United States Minuter Merry laet year.
Mr. Corea, for Nicaragua, and Minister
Calvo, for Costa Rica, have decided to
do away with the protocol stage in their
negotiations regarding a canul, and are
pieparing drafts of treaties which will
embody tbe terms under which their
respective governments ' will reJe tbe
necessary canal rights. These treaty
drafts are expected to be complete by
tbe end of the current week. By that
time Mr. Corea expects to receive his
final instructions from bis government,
including the decision respecting Secre
tary Hay's proposal.

Mitcheirt Land Bill for Repaying Certain
Washington, April 9. Senator
Mitchell today called up and passed his
double minimum land bill. The bill

shall repay to the entry man all fees,
commissions, purchase money and ex
cesses paid upon the same when such
entry is duly cancelled by the depart
ment. In cases where parties hvae paid
double minimum price for land, which
has afterwards been found not to be
within the limits of a railroad grant,
or within the limits of any portion of a
grant which may be forfeited for failure
to construct that portion of the railroad
in aid of which the grant was made,
the excess of $1.25 an acre shall be re
paid to entrymen. Claim for repay
ment to be valid must be filed within
BIG IRRIGATION QUESTION.
May Colorado Take Water That Would
Washington, April 9. The United
States supreme court, in an opinion de
livered by Chief Justice Fuller today,
overruled the demurrer of the state of
Colorado in the case of the state of
Kansas vs. the state of Colorado.
The case involves the right of Colo
rado to appropriate for purposes of ir
rigation the waters of the Arkansas
river, which Kansas sought by an orig
inal action to restrain on tbe ground
that the stream flows through Kansas
and the people of the latter state are
injured by such an appropriation of the
water. The chief justice said that the
case is one in which the court can prop
erly assume jurisdiction. He said also
that the action of the court in overrul
ing the demurrer was intended to be
without prejudire, but was taken be
cause the importance ot the cate was
such that it should not be decided with
out full proof on the questions set up in
the allegations of damage made by tl.e
state of Kansas.

,H0U8E PASSES BILL
ANTI-CHINESE MEASURE MADE
Mixed Ble di Art Now Included In Excluded
List No Chinese Sailors to be Employed
a Amerksn Ships The Provisions of
the Bill Also Apply to Colonial Possess.
Ions of the United States.
Washington, April 8. The house
yesterday passed the Chinese excluisin
bill, after incorporating in it several
amendments which increased the dras
tic character of the measure. The
principal one not onlyexcludes Chines
by birth and descent, but all Chinese
of mixed blood. . The chief struggle
was over an amendment to jprohibit the
employment of Chinese sailori on
American ships. An amendment cov
ering this proposal was ruled out on a
point of order, but subsequently was
modified to evade the ruling and was
adopted, 100 to 74.
As passed the bill practically re
enacts all the existing exclusion laws,
and incorporates with them the exist
ing treaty regulations. It extends
these exclm-ion laws to the Philippines
and other possessions of the United
States, and forbids Chinese labor ia our
colonial possessions coming into this
country. The Philippine commission,
by the terms of the bill, is directed t
adopt proper measures for the enforce
ment of the provisions of the bill in
Two amendments were made without
division, one by Clark or Missouri to

SENATOR MITCHELL MAKE8 THE
Measure Is on the Same Basis as the Ex
isling Law Though Its Provisions Are
Drastic They Are More Liberal in Sesne
Respects Than Those ef The Geary Aet
Which It Is to Replace.
Washington, April 7. The senate
haa begun the comideration of the Chi
nese exclubion bill, Mitchell making
the opening speech. He pointed Ml
forcefully the necessity for the exclu
sion of Chinese laborers, and carefully
and elaborately analyzed the bill. He
said that it had been constructed ot
Ilia basis of existing law, in the light
of experience and of the decision! ol
the courts. While its provisions were
drastic, he said, it was in some respect
more liberal than the Geary law.
His speech had been carefully pre
pared and was given close attention by
senators. Mitchell, in beginning, said
that the policy of Chinese exclusion
had become one of the great policies of
this country, acquiesced in by all polit
ical parties, and as firmly fixed at the
Monroe doctrine. It is a policy based
upon the general welfare, upon the
principle of protection to American la
bor, and upon the doctrine ot protec
tion against noxious infection of the in
stitution which constitutes American
civilization. The basic principles ol
the pending bill were embodied in ex
isting legislation, and such additions as
have been proposed were approved by
experience and were in accord with the
decisions of the courts.
The framers of the measure had en
deavored to make it is effective at pos
sible as a restrictive measure, while
set-ping steadily in view all necessary
ueans of protection against fraud. An
effort has been made to liberalize these)
provisions relating to the exempted
lasses. No radical departure was pro
posed from the statutes now in opera
tion, the bill being a virtual codifies-
ion of the existing laws and regulations
concerning the admission to this coun
try of Chinese persons. The aim of the
framers was carefully to avoid anything
which might give just cause for offense
to the Chinese empire, and to an ex
tent, at least, it was a more liberal
measure, so far as the exempted elate
were concerned, than that which it new
on the statute books.
