consequent ot thcso methods tho will of tho

only thing that our trends In that stato have to

Tho Call publishes a letter from tho
presidents of tho Chinese Six Companies
to Collector of Internal Heventio Quinn,
Bent in response to nn inquiry us tti
whether they had advised Chinese la
borers not to comply with thu law.

sued a circular advising Chinese labor
ers that the law Is unconstitutional and
cannot bo enforced and that they havo
suggested to tho laborers that they tlo
not comply with tho law. Tho presi
dents say their circular was based upon
tho advice of their attorneys.
In support of tho assertion that tho
law is unconstitutional they say that
tho law makes no distinction between
Chinese who arc aliens and Chinese
who aro citizens of tho United Slates;
that a eltl.en of tho Chinese race is
entitled to the samo rights und priv
ileges as those ot tho Caucasian race.
.TuiIrii (luthrln UnrU tho Civil KlghU Act
Toi'KKA, Kan., Sept 21. Hotel and
theater managers, railroad companies
and other public purveyors, will no
longer stand in awo of tho civil rights
act passed by tho legislature of Kansas
in IH71. It was declared unconstitu
tional by Judge Guthrlo of the district
court, in tho ease of the state vs. De
Moss it Armstrong, proprietors of tho
St Nicholas hotel, this city.
It was alleged In the information that
tho defendants are proprietors of tho
St Nicholas hotel; that ou tho 4th day
of August, 1892, J. L Leonard, a col
ored man, called for his breakfast at
the hotel and demanded that ho should
bo given a seat In the dining room; that
tho defendants offered to furnish him
for his breakfast anything thoy had in
thu lioiiso at tho lunch counter, which
he refused to accept, ami demanded that
ho should bj permitted to tako a seat
with tho other guests at a table In tho
dining room, which was refused.
DoMots & Armstrong wero prosecuted
under an act entitled "An- net to pro
vide for tho protection of ultb.ens In
their clyll and public rights," approved
February 21, 1S74. Tho uet provides
that if the owncrt or .agents in charge
of ttnj' inn, hotel tir boarding house, or
any place of entertainment or amuse
ment shall make any distinction on tie
count of race, color or previous condi
tion of servitude, tho person ho offend
ing bhall be deemed guilty of a misde
meanor. Hits court hold that tho act of the
legislature was unconstitutional for the
reason that the language of the uet and
clnss of persons intended to bo protect
ed by tho net was broader than tho title
pf tho uet.
The tltlo of tho act is "For tho pro
tection of citizens in their civil and
public rights." Tho provisions of the
act apply to all persons, aud aro there
