A Family who take care of the house occupies the back apartments. Ko wonder the Chicago bova work so earnestly on the ball field. Besides being the best salaried club in the country, they are also luxuriously treated. Other League clubs will doubtless follow in the footsteps of the Chicago man agemeat and also fit up club-houses in time.

SpecKa Correspondence of The Tribune, Jackson, Hay 18.—The Mutual Base-Ball Club of this city, who for the last three years have been the acknowledged champions of the State, are again in the field for tbe present season with a nine much etrooger than ever. Billy Foley, a well-known player of Chicago, was but after staying some ten days departed, and it has been since learned that he was gobbled up by the Cincinnati Reds. He made many friends coring brief stay, who mourn his loss, for had he stayed the Zluttads would have as strong infield as any nine tn the country outside of the League.

LotnsvnxE, May 20.—The Clarke stake was won by Creedmore, beating the Great Vagrant, Henry Owings, and Leamington, in the order named. It was a dash of 3 miles for $2,500. Vagrant was the favorite at big odds, baring previously been successful in all his at tempts. He was ridden to-day by Bobbie Bwim; Creedmore by Williams. Vagrant got off in the lead, bat Creedmore lapped him at the mile and a half, winning by 3 lengths. Time. 5:443f.

The French 2,000 guineas (Fonle d’Essal), 1 ■Bile, for which twelve tan, was won by M. Lupin's Euguerrande, Filoselle being second, and Malara (late Henreille) third. Mr. \Tilson, of Kentucky, has imported the chestnut horse Cobham, by Macaroni, out of Reg .saella by Eng Tom, a aix-ycar-old of fine appear ance and substance, though his performances in public hare not been at all successful. The sensation stories that hare been circulated about the running of the Eastern crack. Parole, for the Kentucky Derby, of his owner haring con cealed all information of hla condition and run him without a ghost of a chance to win, are wholly without foundation. Barring a slight cold, the colt was well, and his owner, Mr. PierreXorillard, the big tobacconist, backed him at New Tort on the eve of the race Tor $5,000. The fact is that— as the running clearly showed—Parole, like most of Ms family, has no liking for any distance over a mile. The famous English sire, Marsyas. Is dead. He was foaled in 1851 and was by Orlando, oat of Mal- Ibran by Whisker. As a two-year-old be won the J oly stakes and Goodwood Biennial, when he was intentionally injured by aone one who feared to lose money through his further successes. As a Bire his best luck was with the get of the Princess »f Wales, including Albert Victor, who came so near winning the Derby, George Frederick, who won It two years ago, and Louise Victoria, a moat successful performer at all distances. Petrarch was ridden for (he 2,000 guineas by Luke, a stable-boy (though he is 24, and has a wife and three children), who bad never before had * mount at Newmarket After the race, he received from an anonymous friend a present of $2,500. Remarkable as was Ms success and curiously lib tx&l as was this reward, neither will compare with Be case of George Parsons, who rode Caractacus for the Derby and won it That was his first pub lic race, and, unices The Chicago Tribune's memory Is notably at fault Parsons re ceived at his reward from Hr. C Entwine, the owner of Caractacus, the stakes, amounting to something like $20,000. Probably the oddest price paid for riding—or not riding—a race was given about fifteen years ago for the Liv erpool grand National Steeple-Chase. The friends »f Jealousy, the favorite, paid the best rider in England $1,500 not to ride anything else for the race, and this comingto the ears of the speculators, who had laid heavily against the mare, they paid aim $1,500 more not to ride her. So, without leav ing the bouse, be got s3,ooofor one day's work, or rather for non-work.

Astor, who already owns the full brother to Monarchist, Frederick the Great, has bought him for $7,500, the highest price ever paid in the United States for a gelded racer, and it is not likely that he will ever come West again, but be taken East and put in trim for the'Breckenridgeat Baltimore. His engagements ahead are the Breckenridge, the Sewanee stakes at Nashville, the Galt-House stakes and Kentucky St.. Legcr at Louisville, and the Grand Exposition stakes at Philadelphia. PEDESTRIAXIS3I. AT THE EXPOSITION BUILDING. The walking tournament that bag been drag ging itself along at the Exposition Building for a week past, and which has been supported only by the side-shows that hare been daily intro troduced, came to an uninteresting end last night, and according to the posters and hand bills the winner can go forth and proclaim him self the champion pedestrian of the world.' It is unnecessary to remark that the interest mani fested by the outside public has been small indeed. For the sake .of those who perhaps may not have known it. It may be said that there were about a dozen entries on the first day. As the walk progressed and the par ticipants became tired, they dropped off, one by one, tm but three remained. These finished thefr arduous labors lastntaht, with Guyonin the lead at 4X2 miles. Russell came in a good second at 401 miles, while Fifield had made 363 miles when the final ‘ * time ” was called. The men ap peared wearied. The prizes, —$2,000 to thewia ner, SI,OOO to the second mao, and SSOO to the third in the contest, besides the Field medal for the best time,—were not distributed at the close of the contest, but will be given out In the Exposition Building Monday afternoon at 4 o'clock. During the evening Mr. Stanton, the bicyclist, attempted to ride 18 miles in one hour for a sup posed wager'of SSOO. He failed to accomplish toe extraordinary performance, and came in jontwo minutes and forty seconds behind bis time. He feels confident of being able to make his race on a larger track, and one where be will not be interfered with by pedestrians and people con stantly crossing his course, much to his discomfort and annoyance. The 3-mile walk arranged between Van Wonner of the .Adelphi, XViboa of Hooley’s, and Knowles of the Coliseum, was won br Van Wotmcr in re spectable time. Knowlea did not take part. There was also a trial open to all (barring Oddy, the pacer), which was taken part in by four youths. The prize was $25, and Olmsted walked off with it in 44 nmmtcs and 27 seconds. Then followed respectively Hate, Gerrity, and Cuthbert e cm. The comparative failure of the tournament can not he laid to any fault of the managers, who have done everything and made many sacrifices to In sure • success for their undertakjng. The poor character of the walking in itself, ana the absence of any noted pedestrians, are causes to which the lack of success may be attributed. O’LEARY. Saw Francisco, May 20.— 1 tis considered im possible for O'Leary to finish bis 500 miles to night. He will probably fall short about 40 miles. Scamehl rill probably make about 300 by mid night. It is considered O'Leary might have made the distance had he not wasted time the first day or two. anscEiiEAjraoTJS. POLO. Mr. George N.

C., May 20.—'The Judiciary Committee this morning agreed to the Law rence Union Pacific bill, with several very im portant amendments. The following is an ab stract of the bill os it was adopted by the Com mittee: It is amendatory of the act of July 1,1862. It provides that the Secretary of the Treasury shall at all times withhold payment of money due from the United States to any land grant railroad, whether such money so due bo reduced to judgment or not, to the amount of any or all claims due from such com panies to the United States. In any suit’ of such company against the United States the United States may plead as a set-off any claim -against such road, or may make such claims subjects of separate action. The companies shall be required to pay 6 per cent on all claims due the Government if pay ment be unreasonably withheld. THE SENE3N*FUND SECTION provides that a sinking-fund for the extinguish ment of the indebtedness of the road due to the Government shall be $«a0,000 a year for the first ton years, and $1,000,000 a year thereafter till the entire debt and interest be paid. These sums are exclusive of the 5 per cent net earnings ftindj* and the Government freight account, which are to be accredited to the Company on account of inter est due the United States. The sinking fund of the Central Pacific Railroad Company shall be made proportionally to their indebtedness to the Government. On this basis the Secretary of the Treasury shall invest-the money on ac count of the sinking fund in United States bonds, and reinvest the same, with the Interest and profits, and at the maturity of the bonds' shall set the money on bonds at not less than their fair value to the credit of the sinking fund, and nothing shall require the 5 per centum net earnings and one-half of the compensation for services tendered for the Government to be so invested. Non-payment by the companies is A GROUND OF SUIT. XI is made the duty of the Attorney-General to institute such suits. All such suits shall have precedence in the courts. Such companies ore prohibited paying dividends from earning?, profits, or resources, so long, as such company may be indebted to the .United States on any claim under this act. Every person receiving such' dividends shall be liable to refund the same to the United States officers, or agents of the com pany making such payments shall be liable to the United States for the full amount. No officer or agent shall bo interested in contracts with tho company. The penalty for this is SIO,OOO and one year’s imprisonment. Any remedy provided by this act shall not interfere with the remedies under previous acts. The pending suits of the Credit Alobilier and others are not to be affected by • this act. Nothing in the faniis to be deemed a waiver of the power and right of Congress at any time to amend or repeal any act relating to such companies. Nothing shall impair any right existing by law under the act of July 25,18&L The Committee received HO FORMAL PROPOSITIONS PROM THE ROADS in answer to the letter addressed to them, but the general views of the companies are known, and the Committee is in hopes that the terms of the bill trill be accepted. It is manifestly for the advantage of the companies: as the man agers trill show,that some provision should be made to pay the accumulated debt. The roads are in a condition, undoubtedly, to begin the payment provided for by the bill, and if the bill is accepted by the companies with out recourse to judicial proceedings it will undoubtedly strengthen the stocks of all the subsidy roads. The Committee think that they have drawn a bill which would stand the test of judicial examination, and if so of course its passage would force the road into compliance with its provisions. There is a strong desire to avoid any conflict between the Goverumcnt-and the companies. The amount of interest already advanced by the Government on the Pacific Rail road bonds is $24,000,000. The principal of the bonds on which this Interest has been paid is nearly $65,000,000. XOTFISIASTA. KELLOGG. Special Dispatch to The Tribune. Washington*, B. C., May 20.—Secretary Taft is pleased with the reports concerning’ the Louisiana troubles received from 6cn. Augur. These advices show that the troubles are at an end. The Secretary's orders to Augur were to keep within the Constitution and avoid any complication with the civil authorities. This remark is occasioned by the fact that while, ac cording to Gov. Kellogg, there are dis turbances in X-ouisiaruLS so grave as to lead. him to demand Federal interference he not only remains here, but has with him V/artoD, Adjutant-General oi the State; Ayers, Bcputy United States Marshal; the dork of the Metropolitan Police, a body which the Gov ernor can use at will in any part of Louisiana, and Badger, the Chicf-of-Police. These men would be needed if there were really serious dis turbances. They prefer to remain here and ask the Federal Government for troops. TUB SEW ORLEANS INVESTIGATION.

He differed from the Committee as to the extent of the evidence taken.

The House then went into Committee of the whole (Mr. Clymer in the Chair) on the Naval Ap propriation, bill. r Mr. O’Neill spoke in opposition to abolishing League Island. Mr. Blount, who has charge of the bill, moved to reduce the appropriation for the pay of the Navy from $6,250,000 to $5,750,000, and to allow officers mileage at 8 cents a mile, instead of tho S resent allowance of actual expenses, ami after iscussion it was agreed to. Mr. Whitthorue offered an amendment fixing tho rates of pay of naval officers. Mr. Banka suggested that the Committee should now rise, so that the members might have an op portunity to sec the amendment in print.

Some Pacts for Mr, Beach’s Consideration from California Sources. Interesting Statistics Regarding Our Almond-Eye d. Citizens. CHINESE CHEAP LABOR. WHAT AN ANTI-CBLESTIAL BAT 3 ABOUTIT. ; About 300 persons gathered in Farwell Hall lost erening to listen to the Hon. P. A.Z£oach, of the California Senate, lecture upon the Chinese cheap labor question. Though the admission was free, the sparseness of the audience showed how little interest is taken in this question in this city. Among those present ontheplatform were J. Deßarth Shorb, of San Francisco; the Hon. John Hfso, Commissioner Burdick, A C. Cameron, and Messrs. O’Donnell and Gilveray, President and Vice-Pres ident of the Workingmen’s Union. A. C. Cameron was called upon to preside, and introduced the lecturer,-who is a rather medium sized, white-haired gentleman, well preserved, and pleasing in his address. Mr. Roach is about 55 years of age, dresses with becoming taste, and is a man who takes well as a speaker, though, itinust be confessed, brevity is not one ! of his chief virtues. On coming forward he apologized for the present being the first time he ever visited Chicago, and then proceeded to eulogize her greatness, paying a weli-dcservcd tribute to that rhoenix of which The Tribune readers have heard and read so much. Such a city as Chicago, he thought, would, have the courage to aid the Pacific Coast in her endeavor to get rid of a calamity which THRE ATENED HER MORAL .INTERESTS. He alluded to the monster meeting of April 5 held in San Francisco, and spoke of its magni tude as a gathering or the people. That night, if there had not been good counsel, there would have been trouble. But wiser heads pre-- vailed. The. working classes were, only held down now by the moral influences of a few men. The object of his going to Washington was to ask Congress that Arts. 5 and Oof the Burlin game treaty be repealed. Theywantcdtradewlth Lino, but they aid not,want Chinese immigra tion. They did not want a commercial treaty if the immigration was continued. Everything that China produced could be produced in other countries. And lie said that our women, if they knew the extent of the evil, would desist from drinking tea, if necessary, lie drew the con trast between CHICAGO AND SAN FRANCISCO during their early contest fee supremacy. He held that when Chinese cheap labor began to come into San Francisco hcr other immigration fell off. San Francisco, with her one-third population of. California, was 200,000 behind Chicago. Chicago was out of the lines of Chinese emigration, and had been settled bv the Celt; Tueton, Swede,- Pole, and-Bohemian, and he was surprised to hear these languages spoken In this city. He meant oulv to discuss the labor question. The tendency was to doaway with individuals to give place to corporations. Little thread and needle stores and laundries were done away with, and every thing was now done by capital, which was ail the lime making itself stronger. There was no chance to compel corporations to live up to their charters. Good Judges were through their in fluences thrust from the Bench, through the machinery of conventions. He had known of 1 good Judges in California having been com- j gelled to resign by these corporations. I The atmosphere of today was changed, and was falling upon the heart and hand of labor, which was concentrated by corporations. Green backs had been hoarded when they were plenty, and so with gold. They had been cornered and I run up by WALL-STREET SHARKS* who ruined merchants and bankers on that memorable Black Friday in September. The trade dollar in San Francisco bad been reduced to 92 cents by the Pacific Coast Ring. The whole efforts of the Currency- Ring was to render the compensation of labor less. The capital of New York banks aggre gated $80,000,000, while the profits there fast year aggregated nearly $40,000,000. ' Such could not be the case with well-regulated commerce. It was usurious interest which had done this. A few years ago in California they wanted cheap labor for everything. This was before California had adopted a Constitution. They wanted to introduce slavery and peonage, bnt the coolie system was finally adopted. In 1853 the Assembly pasted a bill le galizing contracts made in other countries. This he had opposed in the Senate, and made a re port against it, which he read, and then predict ed what it would do, and it had so come out. Some had said it was a prophecy, but he had only deducted certain results from certain causes. He held that THE COOLIE .WTSTEV was against the Constitution, because it was not a voluntary servitude, and was made for a term of years. They had 30,000 Chinamen in San Francisco, and 40,000 in California. He said that the Chinese were fearful liars. It was the differences between their statements which gave an idea to outsiders of the truth. The population of California is about' 750,000, one tenth of which were Chinese. They were op posed to the manners and customs of the peo ple- They represented a larger element than the Irish in the State of Illinois. They had nearly all Chinese men in California, and a few women and children. They had 180,000 white men in California who supported families and the State, whUe the 80,000 Chinamen only sup ported themselves. Thcv supported nobody but themselves. He had seen attempts to Chris tianize the Chinese for twentv-seven vears, but very little progress had been made. They sim ply laugh at it in theirslceves. Thereweremany men and women in San Francisco who needed the abrogation of Chinese immigration. Mam women had been driven to the lowest depth o'f degradation by Chinese cheap labor. Australia and British Columbia were trred of Coolie la bor’ and were driving them away from their midst, and they were COMIXO TO CAHTOBXIA IX THOtJSAXDS. The people ot Sen Francisco were getting tired and the time was coming when it could be borne no longer. They were 'law-abiding citizens in California, and had had only one little riot there. He only asked the moral support of Chicago, and had hoped for a iareer audience. He next alluded to the glorious cli mate of California. Santa Barbara’s climate was unmatched. They had grown the olive, the orange, and the vine In California. They were not getting immigration because the working man sought a home-employment for hlmsetf and children. Juveniles when not cmplowed became juvenile delinquents. In France a fami ly of boys was a fortune. Not so in California Thera was no immigration of white men to that State now. They had 282 000 square miles of territory, a fine scacost,aud withal they had only a population of 750,000, of which 70,000 were Chinesef and some Indians. Some of the States—lowa and Wis consin—had gone ahead of them. The white man and women (would not work in the same shop with the Chinaman, and who could blame them. Some held THAT CnIXAMEX PLATED THE mvmi PIRT in industry as machinery. This, he held, was not so, and brought to boar arguments showid"- the inequality. The Chinaman workc3 longer and cheaper than the white man, and, in fant, was a machine himself. The employment of the Coolie and the throwing the white man out of work was demoralizing and degrading. The Chinamen living in Chicago were a better class than those living in San Francisco. There they bombed, lodged, and got their washin"- done for « per week. The Chinese quarter was acityhtrstelf in San Francisco. It cost the Chinese txerchant but little more to live than the Chinese laborer. It was the boast of . e count T tliat tlic public do main had been set apart for public school pur poses. The system of education in this country had been such that it had produced some ot the greatest men in the world. Eiihu Burritt, the simple blacksmith, was one of this class, and so with the Natick cobbler, Henry Wilson. An drew Johnson was also complimented for his In tegrity. The system of public education had given the States their population. The vast number of newspapers in the States showed their popular intelligence. If Chinese tion was not stopped they could ° TURN OUB INTO POOH-HOUSES for a learned pauper could find no place in soci ety. If Stephen A. Douglas lived to-day, his voice would roll out like thunder against this iniquity. The Government had legislated In a manner to degrade the people and abase the working classes. They could not legislate against a treaty, and what was now demanded was that tlic treaty with China be repealed. He pictured the Chinese woman-slavery in San Francisco, where they are fanned out for prostitution, and cruelly punish ed., by their masters, and read the evidence fli the Kct. Otis Gibson. In support 01. Ills statement. The Chinese Government sold their prisoners and panpers to the Chinese com panies, which made money out of them. The question of labor and money was the least t among them. Thev brought diseases with them* which they spread "broadcast. He had been tola of six cases of leprosy among Chinamen. Emi nent physicians of San Francisco bad stated that boys of 14 and 15 years of age had been the victims of loathsome diseases—spread i among them by Chinese women. ’ The press had the power to prevent the spread of the evil, and they should oppose it. In some cities there was opposition to the views enunciated by him. He wanted thepapers to treat this question boldly and prevent the farther existence of this evil. The Chinamen seemed honest and docile, yet they had more than their share in the penitentiary in Califor nia. There they learned trades and were brought in direct contrast with honest labor. He. argued against convict cheap labor. He wahtca the farmers to RAISE JXTTE AND HEMP, which the convict should weave and sew into bags. Trades had been rained by convict labor in California, where it could be hired for from 50 to 52 cents a day. He alluded to the immense quantity of pawnshops in San Francisco, which could not exist if white labor was employed. Chinese boys had displaced girls in the workshops. If China ‘ did not want to abnegate the coolie trade, why, they could afford to do away with trade with China, which had a balance in its favor each year of $6,000,000. The speaker read the reso lutions adopted at the meeting held on April 5 last, in San Francisco. He read from President Grant's message of lost year, showing how he viewed the Chinese labor question, and sup ported the speaker’s views, who had 10,000 copies of it circulated. There were 5,000 house-servants in Ban Francisco, dis placing so many women. This was not always the fault of the Chinamen, because some women didn’t like to see girls in the house, and nave the preference to Chinese boys. Thousands of Spanish and American cigar-makers were thrown out of work by Chinamen. Women formerly made SIS and S2O a week at this business. Chinese carried on every occupation, and drove out competition. In the fisheries they' had driven out 700 men, ! and bad destroyed nearly all the fish in San Francisco Bay. The people had built an avenue in San Francisco at a cost of $1,500,000 to pre vent their children from being taken through the Chinese quarter on their way to school, on account of the vice exposed there. He held that the reciprocity treaty was not reciprocal at ail, but entirely for the benefit of the Chinese Government. There were 4,000 Chinamen engaged at cigar-making in San Francisco. He characterized a California letter recently published in the Cincinnati Ga zette as a base fabrication. California mechanics were frugal andindustrious, and had $60,000,000 in the savings banks. Toe workingmen had more houses in San Francisco than any other city in the country. THE WORKINGMEN ON TUB PACIFIC COAST had no desire to be idle, and were now doing drudgery and bard workatfroms3tos2.soa day. Air. Barth was one of the largest vine-growers in California, but he would not employ Chinese labor. The white men bought laud. The Mon golian accumulated S2OO or SBOO, and then went back home to live in luxuir. He closed with an appeal for sympathy for the people of the Pa cific Coast, and drank the health of the people of Chicago in a glass of pure lake water, amid applause.. The lecture was well received. ifr. John Gilveray offered the following, which was adopted: Whereas, The people of the PaciOc Coast hare found that the importation of Chinese labor is a misfortune, and contrary to good policy, and not calculated to foster and maintain the spirit of in dependence for which our forefathers hare fought and brothers died to maintain; and Whereas, The Chinese emigrant baa no inten tion of becoming a permanent citizen, and avoids studiously to support our free institutions, ignor ing bur courts of justice; therefore, Resolved, That we pledge ourselves to use our moral support in favor of the abrogation of any treaty whereby the Coolie slave is pat on a footing of equality with the free men of our country, SYDNEY HYEBS was then called upon, and he spoke briefly in support of Judge Roach’s argument, and paid him a glowing compliment. He termed Coolie ism as but another name for slavery, and bnt another way lit carrying on the slave trade, and he believed in abolishing it, no matter whether African or Mongolian. At the conclusion of Mr. Myers’ remarks, the audiunce dispersed. THE OTHER SIDE. AN ARGUMENT IS BEHALF OP CHINESE LABOR. In order to give both sides of the Chinese question in California, an abstract is herewith given of a pamphlet Issued in San Francisco, and entitled, “The other side of the Chinese question in Calfornia; or s reply to the chafes against the Chinese as embodied in the resolu tions adopted at the Anti-Chinese Mass-Meeting, held April 5,157 C, in San Francisco.” The preamble acknowledges the importance of the controversv on Chinese immigration to this country to both State and nation, bnt holds that it is a debatable question upon which only one side has been heard thus far ; that it is the constitutional right and privilege of every citi zen in this free Republic to write, publish, and speak candidiy his own sentiments on any pub lic subject, whether popular or unpopular. It is held that the charges embodied in the resolu tions of April 5 are untrue or exaggerated, as presented Ry the Citizens’Anti-cßuese Com mittee. “ The friends of right, justice, and humanity, while entertaining the highest respect for said Committee and the vast assembly which hon ored their address and resolutions with their approval, are compelled to dissent from them and to accept the challenge contained in the above-mentioned resolutions, to ‘successfully refute the charges they have made against the Chinese.’” It is charged that the Chinese population in California is about 200,000 (about one quarter of the entire population of the State), of whom 75,000 reside in San rrancisco, and constitute about one-ouarter or its people. This estimate, the reply says, is grossly incorrect, as is readily ascertained from the Custom-House records in San Fnmdsco. which give the arrivals anddepartores since IS52* The figures show that during the twentv-four veare and three months which ended on March 31 last there had arrived 214,126 Mongolians. during the same period were THE EXCESS OF ARRIVALS over departures, according to this table, is 124,- iniiw st ™ a ‘ cd number before that in the State, 10,000, total, without deaths, now in the eoum try, 1M 000; deduct 24,000 for deaths, which 110 0(X) 10431 Chmese population in the State “The arrivals of Chinese in 1573 were 11,749 and departures 6,200.

THE NEW i'OEK “ EVENING POST” OS THI QUESTION. “ There arc two sides to every question, and the Chinese difficulty in the Pacific States feta exception to the rule. The. American side-so called—of the Chinese controversy has beea the only one heard for weeks past, but now th« other side is slowly finding its waj into print. A correspondent of tig Cincinnati Gazette says he ‘has yet to find the first respectable citizen is California who does not say that the State conid not get along without the Chinese. They an particularly necessary to the fanners. Theyan industrious, and labor-saving, and cleanly, and surprisingly quick to leant. As to prices, tlei demand high wages: S4O a month for a coot S2O for a scullion to wash dishes, tend firesiand the like; S 3 to $4 a day for harvesters, and s3l a month for farm hands; $2 a day for a porta in a store, and prices to correspond m tig trades and other occupations, all payable in gold.” “ When the white laborers declare themselva ruined by ‘Chinese cheap labor,’say they can not compete with such prices and live, the asscr tion will hardly be believed in view of then facts. Ifis also argued in favor of theCete tiaU that, if they do not remain in the country, it is owing to the manner in which theyan treated; and as to the money they take ami with them, no one win dispute that the label they have given for it is a full equivalent. It n rather a singular circumstance that, while hifii are introduced in Congress in the interest a S?. se are bitterly hostile to til Chinese in California, and would carry their op position even to brutal and murderous treat ment of them, a measure for constructing « State out of New .Mexico, with its population m way superior to the Chinese, has passed the Sen ate and is eagerly pushed in the House.” FOREIGN.
