WASHINGTON, Fee-. II Exclusion of
foreigners who use their passports to
secure admission to the ITnited States
States to the detriment of labor conditions
In this country is provided for by an
amendment to the Immigration bill, agreed
unon by conferees of the senate and house
today and reported to congress. The
amendment la the result of the demand
from the Taclflc coast states for the ex
clusion of Japanese coolies and It Is under
stood that It v. HI aid In securing an under
standing between the administration and
the San Francisco delegation now In Wash
ington conferring with President Roosevelt.
The provision agreed upon Is as follows:
"That whenever the president shall be
satisfied that passport . issued by any
foreign government to Its etusens to go to
any country other than the united, States
or to any Insular possession of the United
States or to the canal lone are being used
to enable' the holders to coma to the con
tlnental territory of the United States to
the detriment of the labor conditions therein
tha president may refuse to permit such
citizens of the country Issuing such pass.
ports to enter the continental territory of
the United States from other countries or
front such other possessions or from the
The bill has been In conference since the
last session of congress and there has been
grave doubts as to whether an agreement
could be reached at all. Tha principal
polnta of difference were in relation to tha
proposed educational test for Immigrants
and tha provision that persons coming to
this country solely to avoid persecution
or "punishment on religious or political
' grounds shall not be deported because of
want of meana, or the probability of being
unable to earn a livelihood. Both of tha
provisions were eliminated.
It la believed that If It had not been for
tha necessity of some legislation looking
to the exclusion of foreigners deemed a
menace to labor there could have bean no
agreement on the propositions. Tha imml
gratlon bill having passed both houses last
session, offered tha bast opportunity for
legislation looking to exclusion of . unde
sirable classes, in tha tha adoption of tha
conference report on tha Immigration bill

Under the agreement tha head tax on
aliens was fixed at M, a compromise be
tween the house provision1 of 2 and the
senate provision of IS. The senate pro
vision exempting from payment of head
tax persons who have resided In Canada,
Newfoundland, Cuba or Mexico for one
year was retained. Tha conferees retained
also the house provision exempting from
the payment of the head tax persona ar
riving In Guam, Porto Rico or the Hawaiian
Islands, but this doea not permit such per
sons later to mlgrati to tha United States
and avoid paying tha head tax. Tha senate

A new feature added to tha measure

made such serious charges In the suit in
Washington, ' D. C, is a small man; his
brown hair is tinged with gray and the
top of his head Is bald. His face Is smooth.
He wore a black suit, with double-breasted
coat. He had ample protection against
cold in a very heavy fur-lined overcoat.
Mrs. Bassett Is a tall and strikingly hand
some woman, wltn Diacs. nair, nne eyes
and a strong mouth. She was modlshly
dressed In a blue tailored suit, black hat
with -white feather and a light black veil.
She wore light brown glove. Mrs. Baa

blight woman. She was accompanied by a
Aranlna of Motloa.
The entire afternoon waa taken up in
arguing on motions. Telegrams were
read by the defense In the present case
showing -that a decision had Just been
rendered In Washington giving Mr. Bas
sett an absolute divorce. The plaintiff
held that this put no different aspect on
the case In hand Inasmuch as the decls
ion of the Washington court is not bin!
ing on the local court. This Is the point
of contention. If the lpcal court decides
the decision of the Washington court Is
binding then there is nothing to the case
here. Mrs. Bassett cannot sue for a di
vorce' here, for she Is already divorced.
After some discussion. It was decided to
go ahead with the case in hand until a
eppy of the decree is received from Wash
ington. Mrs. Bassett's attorneys also filed ex
ceptions to parts of the sensational de
positions filed some weeks ags In the
district court. These depositions were
taken In the east and had reference to
some of the serious allegations mada
against Mrs.' Bassett.
The announcement of the decision of
the Washington court i in favor - of Mr.
Bassett ws a decided victory for the do-fense-
in the case about to be tried Here
and a blow to Mrs. Bassett and Rev. Mr.
