A desire te aetata a eosapeteacy bavtag arisea la their hearts, our people have not shrank front totl aad trouble. They have expected to come here tor oae or two years, and make a but fortune and rater. Who among them ever thought of all these aifficalries t xiensive iwatn, expensive Irving a day without work is a day without food. For this reason, though wages are low, yet they are compelled compelled to labor aad live ia constant poverty, quite enable to retora to their native land. Nov tela honorable country ia aiacuasiDg taw Importaaco of prohibiting tbe farther ir&micrstiow of the Chinese Into this country. That is vary 01, indeed. First,; because it will relieve the American people of trouble and anxiety of mind. Second, tbe Cblneee will then no bgev be wanderers ia a foreign laud. Both pert'ee will thae be benefited. Bnt tble should be brought about in a reasonable manner. It la said that tbe Chinese Six Companies buy and Import Chinasc'i into this country. Bow eaa saeh things be said I Oor Sis Companies have, year after year, seat letters letters discouraging ear peeole from coming to tbia country ; hut the people will not believe aa, aod so they conttaoe to come. The secretary expenses of these poor new-comers new-comers new-comers is a constant drain upon the resources of those already settled here ; so toat tbe Cbinese residente of this country are also opposed to this rapid Chinese Immigration. Bat tbe capitalists of ibis country are constantly calliug for Chinese cheap labor, while the white Is-boring Is-boring Is-boring msa are very sngry because tbe Chinese obtain employmeac which thevtclsim belong to white ddi alone j snd so they bate tbe Cbinamen, sometimes stone them, sometimes strike tflem while walking the streets, and constantly curse tham. The Chinese people .cannot return such treatment in the same kind, kei other nations bearing bearing of such things should ndieuie tbe laws of tbia honorable country at of no use. To prohibit tbe Chinese from coming to this country country Is not a difficult task. Formerly, his Imperial Majesty, our sugust Emperor, made a treaty of peace aod friendship with the Government of the United States, opeoing ap conimen-ial conimen-ial conimen-ial relations snd permitting free intercommunication between tbe people of tbe two countries. This treaty Is in accordance with tbe law of ell nations. Njw, if tbe American people do aot desire tbe Chinese to come here, why not go to tbo Emperor and ask a repeal of tbe treaty! Or why not limit tbe number of immigrants on each steamsr to a very tewf Then many would return and few would come, and not ten veers would elapse before not a trace of tbe Cbinamen would be left in tble country. Would not that be well indeed I But let there he counsel sod consideration. It cannot ba said that Chinese labor Impoverishes this eonntry and do not tbe eus'otns paid by tbe Chinese benefit this country t But let the Government Government of the United Statss propose to the Government Government ef China a repeal or change la the treaty, prohibiting prohibiting the people of either nation from crossing tbe ocean. Then shall we Chinese for ever remain at borne, and enjoy tb happiness of the society of father, mothers. wives, and children, and no longer remain strsngers in a strange land. Then the Industrial in terests of this countty aod the white laborer shall no longer be affected by the competition of the Chinese laborer. Then our Chlneati people shall no longer be subjected to tbe abuse aod Indignitiee now dally heapud upon them in tb open streets ot this so-called so-called so-called Christian land. If tbia can be ao-com ao-com ao-com pliebed, we Cbinese will offer to the virtue of ibis honorable country our deepest gratitude and tnanK. t It of it a o a at in improve-, '
