Certain Classes of Aliens Can't Come to America, Provisions of the Bill to Restrict Immigration Recently Passed by the Hoyse. PUTTING UP THE BARS. WASHINGTON, Feb. 20.—The immigration bill passed by the house Wednesday is an important measure, and special efforts will be made to get it through tbe senate before the 4th of March. But that body ias so much business to do within the [ew remaining; days the chances of the bill are doubtful. Its main provisions are as follows: It excludes from admission into this country all idiots, insane persons, paupers, persons ikely to become a public charge,- persons suf- 'eriog from loathsome or cLjos erolls contagious diseases, persons convicted of felony or other infamous crime involving moral turpitude, polygamists, and any person whose passage is paid for with tlie money of another, or who Is assisted by others ;o come, unless it is affirmatively shown -that such person does not belong to one of the !orepoing excluded classes or to the class of contract laborers. But it is specially provided .ha; persons living in the United Slates may assist friends or relatives who are not of the excluded classes. Persons convicted ofa political offense, whether such offense be a felony or not by the laws of their country, are not to be excluded from immigration. No salt lor violation of the act prohibiting the importation of foreigners under contract is to be settled, compromised or discontinued without the consent of the court and a record of the reasons. To induce mmigration by advertisement of any kind in foreign countries is prohibited except when done by states or state immigration bureaus, and any alien coming to this country in con sequence of such advertisement is to be deemed contract immigrant. Steamship, vessel and transportation companies are pro- libited from inducing or encouraging immigration, directly or indirectlyf except by ordinary commercial letters or advertisements stating the sailings of their vessels and terms and facilities of transportation. A fine of 81,000 or .mprisonment for not more than one year is prescribed for bringing or aiding in bringing Into this country any alien excluded by law. The office of superintendent of Immigration ia created with a salary of S-1,000, to be connected with the treasury department and controlled by the secretary of the treasury. TVe superintendent is to have Ms office in \Vash- .ngton, and a chief clerk at $2,000 and two first-class clerks. The captains and agents of steam and sailing vessels arriving in any port of the United States with immigrants on board are required before landing any alien to report the name, nationality, last residence, and the destination of every alien to the proper inspection officers. Provision is made for inspection and medical examination .of immi< jrants. The inspectors are given power to administer oaths and take testimony touching the right of an alien to land. The decisions of inspectors are made final, unless overruled by the superintendent of Immigration or secretary of the treasury on appeal. A flneofSl.OOO or less, or imprisonment for one year or less, is fixed for violation of the law against landing any alien at any time or place other than that designated by the inspection officers. " The secretary of the treasury is authorized to prescribe rules for inspection along the borders of Canada, British Columbia and Mexico, so as not to unnecessarily delay, impede or annoy passengers In ordinary travel. One inspector may be appointed for each inspection district. State officers and local courts are given Jurisdiction over immigrant stations for the purpose of keeping the peace and making arrests for crimes against the law of the states. Aliens coming into this country in -violation • of law are to bo sent back at once at the expense of the owners of the vessel upon which they arrived. Any such alien may be sent back within one year, and any alien who becomes a public charge within one year after arrival from causes existing prior to landing shall be deemed to have come in violation of law and shall be returned. The bill contains a section relieving ministers of religious denominations, persons belonging to recognized professions, ana professors of colleges and seminaries from exclusion under the act against immigration under contracts.

' ANOTHER SNAG. It Impedes the Progress of the IVorld'i pair—National Ofllcors May Resign. CHICAGO, Feb. 26.—A crisis is at band, in the world's Columbian commission. Unless the conference committees of the house and senate of the United States congress decide to deal inore generously with the exposition, the salary of every officer except President Palmer and Mrs, Potter Palmer will stop next Tuesday night, and with it the national commission, as a working organization, will pass out of existence. The bill that has been agreed to in the senate appropriates but .5*0,000 for the fair, imd specifies distinctly that the sum shall be available for President Palmer, Mrs. Palmer, their clerk , hire and office rent. The efforts of Senator Farwell to insert the words f'and other officers," so as to include Director General Davis, Secretary Dickinson and Vice Chairman McKenzie, failed. These officers, if the amounts named in the house bill are not restored in conference committee, must choose between working for nothing or quietly stepping out and allowing the directory to run the fair. e senate even went further, and took what was left of the $200,000 appropriated for the maintenance of the commission during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1891, and turned it over to-the government board of control, to be used in" arranging the government exliibit. This leaves the national commission without a dollar to its credit after next Tuesday, except what is set apart for the Presidents Palmer. "I do not think," said Vice President McKenzie, "that there will ever be another quorum of the national commission in Chicago, and I doubt very much whether there will even be another full meeting of the board of control." BLOODY BATTLES IN CHILI. Government Troops Defeated with, a Loss of 500 Men. IQUIQUE, Feb. 26.—On the 15th inst. a battle was fought on the pampa at Dolores. The government was defeated with a loss of about 500 men. # On the 16th Iquique surrendered to the fleet. A riot on the same night caused by an incendiary mob was quelled by the fleet and tbe foreign residents. One hundred and seventy-five of the mob were killed and wounded. On the 17th the opposition party suffered a check on the pampa near Huara. ' BITESOS AVRES, Feb. 20.—Additional advices received here from Chili state that the bombardment of Iquique by the insurgents was productive of great loss of life and heavy damage to property. When the rebels entered the cjty they attacked the stores and residences of six of the principal squares and comjdetely wrecked them. The •buildings had afforded shelter to j, large number of women and children, but the insurgents, heedless of the rules "•overning civilized warfare, gave them no chance to escape, and pursued their work of destruction regardless of the frantic endeavors of the helpless occupants to seek a place of safety. It is known that 200 women and children perished in the ruins of the sacked buildings. The insurgents seized the custom house and then pillaged all the principal houses in the city. After Gen. Soto, the commander of the government forces, had surrendered the city the rebel leader landed more troops from their vessels for the purpose of holding the place and despatched a force into the country with the-object of meeting and engaging the government troops.
