Some of the Provisions of the Bill
Passed by the House
Washington, D. C, April 4. A
t i 1 1 held ly friends and foes alike
to be one of the most important
now pending in congress was
passed by the house to-day after
only thirty minutes' debate. The
bill in question is commonly known
as "the Chinese exclusion bill," and
was reported by the committee on
foreign affairs and to-day taken up
on motion of Mr. Geary of Califor
nia. Mr. Gearv said that the Chi
nese government, both through its
officers at home and in this country
had done everything in its power to
violate the spirit of the treaty.
Messrs. Herman and Cutting also
favored the bill, and, after further
debate, it was passed yeas, 179;
nays, 43. The bill absolutely pro
hibits anv Chinese whether or not
subjects of China, excepting diplo
matic and consular officers and ser
vants, from entering the United
States, and the Chinese who may
hereafter leave this country are pro
hibited from returning to this coun
try. It makes liable to arrest on a
warrant issued by any justice, judge
or United States Commissioner,
Chinese entering this country by
crossing its boundaries or found
unlapfull) in the United States and
provides tor the punishment of the
Chinese by imprisonment not to ex
ceed five years, and subsequent
removal from this country to
that from whence they came
and provided that they when
they come here from China by way
of continguoua foreign territory,
tdiall be returned to China. The
act applies to subjects of China and
all Chinese, even if subjects of any
other foreign power. A proviso al
lows the secretaryof the treasury to
admit Chinese other thaia laborers
or artisans to temporarily visit the
United States under such rules as
he may prescribe. The last clause
repeals all acts inconsistent with
this and sets aside the provision of
all treaties now in force between the
United States and China which may
conflict with the provisions of this
act. Violations of the law will be
followed by fine and imprisonment.
The negative vote was cast by
Messrs. Alexander, Andrew, Bee
inan, Iielknap, Beltshoover, Bergen,
Brosius, Buhnell, Cheatham, Co
burn, Coolidge, Craig, Culberson,
Curtis, Knglish. Kpes, Flick, Grady,

The day opened up this morning
with a - strong, cold wind, which
was very disagreeable to be out in;
and the sky was overcast with dark
clouds, which were driven over the
city by the strong wind, and it
looked very much ac if we would
have a snow storm before the day
was half gone.
Although it did not snow, the
strong wind kept up all day, and it
remained cloudy except now and
then when the bright sun broke

and then was hid.
The voting passed olf very quiet

say anywhere near how the election
was going, but all seemed to thintc

And a pout on her lips,

Than most women aro
Whose foreheads, 1 vow.
Are smooth all the whilo.
And who fairly eclipse
A saint with their smile;
With a frown on her brow
And a pout on her lips!
With cold tears in her voice
And deep woe on her face.

Of maids who rejoice
In the pleasures of earth.
Whose features show trace
But of laughter and mirth;
With cold tears in her voice.
And deep woe on her face!

Devices for bringing this boy to a
sense of the material disadvantages of
wrongdoing have been tried, but his
uniformly happy disposition ia proof
against the punitive influence of any of
them. If he is sent to bed early be
cause he has bo torn and soiled his
clothes as to be unpresentable in the
drawing room, he turns up the next
morning with a beaming smile and some
remark about the delicious rest he has
had. If his diet is reduced to plain
bread and water for the violation of a
rule of the table, he discovers without
the slightest hypocrisy, mind you what
uncommonly fine bread the cook bakes,
and how much better water quenches
the thirst than milk or cambric tea.
If he is kept indoors because he has
abused a privilege of the yard or street,
he sets cheerfully about amusing him
self in the house, just as content appar
ently to lie on his back for hour after
hour and indulge in day dreams as to do
anything else, and the chances are that
when it is aU over his little voice will be
raised in praise of the comforts of homes
in general and of his own in particular.
The only punishment he seems to dread
is a whipping- That has been resorted to
sparingly and always for some overt
and aggressive act which was wholly
without excuse; never for a mere mat
ter of habit, however reprehensible.

"If any white female of ten years or

place of public resort, with naked shoul

Ine Dates of Easter.
It has been over 1 ,500 years since the
rule was adopted which makes Easter
the first Sunday after the first full moon
after the sun crosses the line. By this
arrangement of things Easter may come
as early as March 23 or as late as April
23. I have compiled the following facts
concerning the days of the month upon
which it has fallen from 1803 to 1891, in
elusive. In looking over the dates I
have been struck by the variety of days
represented, which include every one in
the month of April except the last five,
Since 1803 it has occurred three times
on the 19th, five times on the 16th, five
times on the 1st, four times each on the
2d, 11th and 12th, four times on March
31, four times on April 6, three times on
the 4th, 5th, 7th, 8th, 10th, 13th, 14th
and 22d of April, and 27th and 28th of
March. March 22, 1818, was the earli
est date upon which it has occurred.
Nine days in March are represented,
viz., 22d, 23d, 25th, 26th, 27th. 28th,
29th, 30th and 31st. St. Louis Republic.
The natural inquiry arises what will
telephones cost when their manufacture
is free, and what will be the expense of
equipping a private line? It is scarcely
necessary to go into detailed estimates
at this juncture, especially as the cost
must necessarily vary with the condi
tions, such as the class of work required,
the finish of the instrument and so on.
A telephone that will speak can be made
for very little, and small instruments
for household work need cost no more
than electric bells of the same quality
Some years ago I put in a large hotel
in Spain an installation of electric bells
and telephones; the telephones were in
the form of ordinary push buttons; you
pressed the button and then pulled the
wooden case from the clamp which held
it to the base fixed to the wall and spoke
into the back of the push, which con
tained a telephone of the ordinary pat
tern with a very short magnet. The
cost of these instruments was very small.
