WASHINGTON , D. C. , Oct. l. |
Senator Cork roll of Missouri , xvho xvas "a
gallant confederate soldier and fought for
the south and secession , " cut off in the sen
ate this afternoon , by a single and stern ob
jection , xvhat promised to be one of the live
liest political debates lii'ard in congress for
many years. Senutor Hale , as forecasted in
thcso dispatches on last Friday night , took
tlio initiative step In nn investigation of tin )
circumstances under xvhich the Hcnet circu
lar order xx'as issued , and the effect of its
operations , calling upon the so-rotary of xviir
for an official location of the responsibility
of the document. Commenting , Mr. Halo
declared the proceedings this most outrageous
in the annals of polities , and said that it
beggared description in administrative
depravity. Ho deplored Iho era in
national affairs xvhen llio military branch
of the government xvus prostituted for polit
ical purposes ; xvhen xvidoxx's and orphans of
union soldiers and sailors xvero discharged
from Iho menial posillons xvhich afforded
them daily bread , that democratic voters and
plug uglies might bo gix'cn roxx'iird for their
campaign services. When ho concluded ills
excoriation , Senators Chandler , Cullom ,
Muiidcrson , and oilier republicans desired
thn floor for the purpose of proceeding xvith
their expressions of disapproval of tlioorder.
Mr Cockrcll , of Missouri , said that ho xvould
enter immediate and positive objection to
further procedure on the subject ; that the
rules of the senate required such resolutions
to lay an the president's table for ono
day before their merits could bo dis
cussed. He added that to-morroxv ho
proposed to iniiko some remark * on
the subject , and intimnled that ho
would not only Justify the order , but xx'ould
Blioxv that it should Inix'o been issued long be
fore it XXMS , declaring that all of the positions
under Ihc government xvero due to the party
h'A in poxver. Cockrcll believes in turning out
not only the xvidoxx's and orphans of soldiers ,
but the legless and armless veterans xvliere-
ever and xvhencver the administration
changes from republican to democratic hands.
Tindebute promises lo be lively , ami lliero
is no doulit that un investigation will bo had ,
but in the absence of Secretary Endicolt it
may be delayed till alter the campaign. The
administration does not want to meet the
issue bcloro the election. General Bcnet
is trying to shift the responsibility from
Secretary Endicott to himself , but the fact
remains that General Henri stuted to your
correspondent on lust Thursday that Secre
tary Endicott approved of the order and
instigated it.

Politics in IMiitto County.
Coi.i-Miirs , Neb. , Oct. 1. [ Special to Tin :
BKK.J The campaign is opening up in this
county , and so fur it is of a very enthusiastic
character. The republicans and prohibition
ists are in tlio field xvith their tickets , but
the democrats xvill not appear till the
10th of October , xvhen their county conven
tion meets. The third party xvill not cut
much of u lik'uro in the campaign this fall.
Tlie b.ittle xvill be betxx'eea ttio txvo old pur-
lies. The Harrison und Morton club holcla
xx'celdy incctmgs.and is taking stops to erect
a log cabin , enclosed oy a rail fence , and
supplied xvith appurtenances necessary to
its completion. All republicans xvill turn
out and devote a day to the erection of the
cabin. The Cleveland and Thurman club
hold semi-inonth'.y meetings , and xvill soon
raise a genuine hickory pole , cut from tlio
Western Ueservo. The state ticket xvill
receive the party vote xvilh the exception of
Lcese , xvho xvill receive support from the
farmers independent of party politics. The
voters in this county are becoming xvide
nxvuko to their interests. Tlio candidates for
the leirislaturo xvill bo called upon to declare
their position on the vital issues before tiio
people. It xx-ould not bo surprising if Harrison
risen and Morton should c.irry Plutto county
this fall , as nearly all of the Irish-Americans
xvill support them. W. A. McAllister xvill be
the nominee of the republican party for
senator Irom the Txvclfth senatorial district.
Hu has in the main worked and voted in the
interests of the people .
Ur. W. A. Hampton , the republican nomi

the Twenty-fifth representalivo district , is
the farmer candidate. Ho bus an excellent
record and his position on all public question !
is known to the people.
K. H. Henry xvill probably bo the ctindi

His nomination would not mean election , a :

Those Who Tralllo In Moiicol Labor
Held HcHponnlblc For the Inop
erative Condition of Ex
isting Treaties.
WABJHSOTOX , Oct. 1. In his message to
congress to-day regarding the Chinese bill
President Cleveland announced his approval
of it. Ho said : "The experiment of blend
ing the social habits and mutual race Idlo-
syncracics of the Chinese laboring classes
xvith those of the great body of the people of
the United States has been pro\cn by an ex
perience of txventy years , and over
since the Burllngnmo treaty of 1S03 ,
to bo In every way a failure. The
governments of the respective countries
liavo resolved to modify and suftlciently ab
rogate all thcso features of prior conven
tional arrangements xvhich permitted the
coming of Chinese laborers into the United
States. lu th'o modification of prior convcn-
ions the treaty of November 17 , ISbO , xx-as
concluded , whereby , in the first article
thereof , it xvus agreed that the United States
should at will regulate , limit or suspend the
coming of Chinese laborers lo Iho United
States , but not absolutely prohibit
it ; and under this article the act
of congress approved May 7 , lHb'2 , and
amended July 5 , 18S4suspended forteu years
the coining of Chinese laborers to the United
States , and regulating the coming nnd going
of such Chinese laborers as xvero nt that time
in the United States. This viexv of the Chi
nese government , so completely in harmony
xvith that of the United Slates , xxfas by my
direction speedily formulated in a
treaty drafted betxveen the txvo nations ,
embodying the propositions presented by the
Chlueso foreign office. Being submitted for
the ndvico and consent of the senate , its
confirmation last May xvas accompanied by
txvo amendments which that body
engrafted upon it. On the 1-tli
day of the same month the Chinese
minister , xvho xx'as the plenipotentiary of his
gox'orniner.t in the negotiation nnd conclu
sion of the treaty , in a ifoto to the secretary
of state , gave his approval of these amend
ments and they xvero at once telegraphed to
China , xvhither the original treaty had pre
viously been sent after its signature
March 18. %
"On the 18th day of last month I approved
the senate bill to prohibit the coining of
Chinese laborers to the United Stales. The
bill xvas intended to supplement the treaty ,
and xvas approved in oonlldent anticipation
of an early exchange of ratifications of the
treaty and its amendments and u proelana-
lion of Ihe sumo , upon xvhich Iho legis
lation so upi'iwedvii8 by its terms to take
effect. No Information of any definite
action upon the treaty by the Chinese go\-
ernment xvas received until the 'Jlst. ultimo ,
the day the bill xvliich 1 have Just approved
xvas presented to me , xx'heii a telegram from
our minister at Pekin to tlio bccretary of
state announced the refusal of the Chinese
government to exchange ratifications of the
treaty unless further discussion should bo
had xvith u viexv to Hborton the period stipu
lated in tlio treaty for the exclusion of
Chinese laborers , and to chungo the condi
tions agreed ujion.
"It xvas , hoxvovcr , soon made evident that
the mercenary greed of the parties xvho xvero
trading in the labor of this class of popula
tion xvus proving too strong for a just execu
tion of the lu\v , and that tlio virtual defeat
cf the object and intent of both laxv and
treaty xvas being fraudulently accomplished
by fulso pretenses and perjury , contrary to
the expressed xvish and xvill of both gox'orn-
nicnts. Such demonstration of the inopera-
tix-o and ineflicient condition of the treaty
and laxv lias produced deep scaled and in
creasing discontent among tlio people of the
United Stales , and especially xvith llipso res
ident on Iho Pacific coast. This had induced
mo to omit no effort to find nn effectual rem
edy for the evils complained of , and to an
swer tlio earnest and popular demand for an
absolute exclusion of Chinese laborers , xvho
hax'o objects and purposes unlike our own ,
and xvho are xvholly disconnected xvith Amer
ican citizenship.
"The necessity for a remedy has been fully
appreciated by that government , and in Au
gust , ISiU , our minister at Pekin received
from the Chinese foreign office a communica
tion announcing that China , of her oxvn ac
cord , proposed to establish a system of strict
and absolute prohioition of her laborers un
der heax-y penalties from coming to the
United States , and hkcxviso to prohibit the
return to the United States of any Chinese
laborer who shall ut any time have gene back
to China , in order , in tlio xx'ords of the com
munication , 'that Chinese laborers may bo
gradually reduced lu number , and the causes
of danger ax'eried and lives preserved. ' It
should entitle any Chiucsa laborer xvho
might go back to China to return again to
the United States.
"In u note from the charge d'affuirs ud in
terim of Chinu to the secretary of state , re
ceived on the " .1th ultimo , a third amendment
is proposed , xvhcroby a cerlitlcale , under
xvhich any departing Chincso laborer alleging
the possession of property in the United
States xvould bo enabled to return lo this
country , should bo granted by the Chinese
consul instead of tlio United States collector ,
as had been provided by the treaty. Tlio ob-
X'ious and necessary effect of the last propo
sition xx'ould bo practically to place the exe
cution of the treaty beyond the control of the
United StaU-s. Article 1 of Iho treaty , pro
posed to be so materially altered , had in the
course of negotialions been settle'l in
acquiescence xvith the request of
the Chinese plenipotentiary and to
his expressed satisfaction , Article 'J xvas
wholly of Chincso origin , and to that alone
oxx-es its presence in the trcaly. The admit
ted and paramount right and duty of every
cox'ornmcnt to exclude from its borders all
'elements of foreign population xvhich for any
reason retard its prosperity or are detrimental
lo'.lho moral and physical health of its people'
must bo regarded us a recognized canon of
international Jaxv and intercourse. China
herself has not descended from this di ctrine ,
but has , by the expressions to xvliicli I have
referred , led us confidently to rely upon such
action on her part In co-operation xvith us us
xx'ould enforce the exclusion of Chinese la
borers from our country , This co-operation
has not , hoxvcver , been accorded us.
"Thus from the unexpected unddisappnlnt-
ing refusal of the Chincso government to
confirm the acts of its authorized agent and
to carry into effect an international ugrco-
menl , the mam feature of xvhich xvas volun
tarily presented by that government for our
acceptance , nnd xvhich lias been the subject
of long and careful deliberation , the emer
gency has arisen in xvhich the government of
the United States is called upon to net in
sclf-dofcnso by the exercise of its legislative
"Tho facts and circumstances which I liavo
narrated lead mo , in the performance of
xvhat seems to bo my official duty , to Join
congress in dealing legislutix-cly xvith the
question of the exclusion of Chinese laborers ,
in lieu of further attempts to adjust it by nn
international agreement. "
In the course of his message the president
recommends that congress , by u Joint resolu
tion , or in some other manner , provide that
such Chinese laborers as have actually em
barked on their return before the passage of
Ihis bill may bo permitted to hind. Ho uUo
recommends the appropriation of the amount
named in the rejected treaty to Indemnify
certain Chincso subjects for damages suf
fered through violence in the rcmoto and
comparulivoly unsettled portions of thu
United States.
