Mr. Tat't, then Secretary of War, gave tific coast alone or the laboring men to the newspapers an Interview re-, alone. It Is true that the Pacific iatlng to Chinese Immigration. In j count would feel the evil effects of that newspaper Interview Mr. Taft Chinese immigration first, and It Is said: also true that the laboring men would _ __. _... _ " come into immediate contact with Or- excluding" or preventing perhaps iwi j iental labor, but in Its ultimate Influ- Chinese coolies from slipping Into; PIICC the subject touches all parts of this country against the law, we the country and reaches nil classes. should subject an equal number of Chinese merchants and students of high character to an examination of such an Inquisitorial, humiliating, Insulting and physically uncomfortable character as to discourage altogether the coming of merchants and students? One of the great commercial prizes of the world Is the trade with the 400,000,000 Chinese. Ought we to throw away the advantage which we have by reason of Chinese natural friendship for us, and continue to enforce an unjustly sevure law, and thus create in the Chinese mind a disposition to boycott the American trade and drive our merchants from Chinese shores simply because wo are afraid that we may for the time onahle and extreme popular learfdll lose the approval of CERTAIN UNREASONABLE AND EXTREME POPULAR LEADERS OF CALIFORNIA AND OTHER COAST STATES? Does the question not answer it self? IS IT NOT THE DUTY OF MEM HERS OF CONGRESS AND OF THE EXECUTIVE TO DISREGARD THE UNREASONABLE DEMANDS OF A PART OF THE COMMUNITY DEEPLY PREJUDICED UPON THIS SUBJECT IN THE FAR WEST, AND INSIST ON EXTENDING JUSTICE AND COURTESY TO A PEOPLE FROM WHOM WE ARE DERIVING i\ND ARE LIKELY TO DERIVE The qustlon is whether we are going right and patriotic people and develo to build up a strong, Independent, up- rinlit and patriotic people and. develop a civilization that will exert a helpful Influence on all the world, or uli.'ther we are going to be a ureeiiy, grasping nation, forgetful of hlish Ideals and concerned only in tin making of money."

Koast pig, salad anil other good things, with coffee and San Dle^o beer as liquids, filled the tallies, and there were interspersed musical numbers by Clem Wilson, Ollie (iotchett, Chas. HuNsell.

Commenting on that Interview Mi- Bryan, in an editorial printed in the Commoner, protested as follows: "It will be seen that 'the $400,000,000 commercial -prize' Is the thing that fills the Secretary's eyes, and anything is regarded as unreasonable that stands In the way. He underestimates the number of Chinese that would come In as laborers and DENOUNCES AS UNREASONABLE THE DEMANDS MADE BY THE LA BORING MEN OF THE COUNTRY THAT THEY BE PROTECTED FROM A HORDE OF CHINESE COOLIES who are not assimilated or brought to the American level of living, but simply displace American workmen. It is fortunate for the country that thus early in his presidential campaign Secretary Tat't so dear! v aligns himself with the capitalistic si'l<>. For forty years the | manufacturers have taxed the whole ! country for the ostensible purpose of ulvitig good wages to labor; but now when they begin to reach out fur the 1 markets of the world they are willing ' tu sacridre the wage-earner to com- nil 1 :-. i;il ,'iii van t;i ires, i "THEY INSIST THAT TiiK GOODS MADE i!V C'OOI.IES THEM- .SELVES SHALL COME IN.
