Washington, April 16. The drastic
Chinese ' exclusion bill originally
framedVby the scnutors and ropresen
tatlyes from the Pacific coast states.
"tiitt defeat In the senate today, and in
lfj plate was substituted a measure
offered by Mr. Piatt, of Connecticut,
extending the provisions of the pres
ent exclusion law und also applying
jjiat exclusion to all insular territory
under the Jurisdiction of the United
The vote by which the substitute
took the place of the original bill was,
48 ycus to S3 nays. Once the substitu
tion had been made, all senators
joined in its support, with the single
exception of Sir. Hoar, the substitute
being passed, 76 to 1.
The friends of the substitute showed
their strength throughout the voting
on amendments that preceded llnal ac
tion, and succeeded in preventing any
material change in its features. Some
minor changes were made, admitting
C'dneso persons connected with na
tional expositions, and providing for
i certificates of identification of Chinese
ln6ur insular possessions. Otherwise,
however, the substitute was adopted
Substantially in the form that air.
Piatt presented it.
The senate, after disposition of the
Chinese exclusion bill, made the Philip
pine civil government bill the unfin
I The senate failed to substitute the
enacting clause of the house bill for
, .the senate measure, so that the bill
'now will go to the house as an origi
nal measure, and, from a parliamentary
standpoint will have to be acted upon
and treated the same as though the
house had not passed a Chinese exclu
sion bill already.
Mr. Quay's Proposed Amendment.
After the disposition of some other
amendments, Mr. Quay proposed an
amendment that the exclusion shull not
apply to "Chinese Christians or Chinese
who assisted in the defense or relief of
the foreign legations of the Pe Tang
cathedral in Peltln In 1900."
In explaining the amendment, Mr.
Quay paid a tribute to the Christian
religion as the basis of civilization.
Several senators spoke against the
amendment on the ground that It would
lead to evasion of the law.
Mr. Dolllver, (Iowa) referred In glow
ing terms to the heroism of Minister
and Mrs. Conger, residents of Iowa,
during the siege of Pekln, and ho ex
pressed the belief that some adequate
recognition should be given by this
government to those who aided the
American legationers during those days
That part of Mr. Quay's amendment
admitting Chinese Christians was lost
without division and on an aye and
nay vote the admission of Chinese
soldiers who assisted Americans dur
ing the siege of Pekln was defeated, 7
to 68. Those who voted for the amend
ment were Messrs, Burton, Dolllver,
Hoar. Piatt (New York); Proctor, Quay
The Piatt amendment which was
adopted as a substitute for the cut lie
bill is as follows, except, wheie changed

"Washington, April 1G. Not only the
British but the German government
has lodged a strong protest with the
state department against the applica
tion of that part of the Philippine tariff
act 'recently enacted and just ordered
Into operation which authorizes the re
bate of a portion of the export duties
on Philippine products when Imported
Into the United Stales. Tho greater
matter of complaint Is hemp, which Is
Imported Into England and Germany
in vast quantities from Manila. The
rebate afforded to American Importers
will amount It Is alleged, to a difference
of 3-S of a cent a pound In favor of the
American rope maker, a discrimination
which will practically destroy tho
British and German trade according to
These protests have been referred to
the war department which is at present
In control of the Philippines, and the
officials arc puzzled as to their disposi
tion. As the rebate provision Is part
of the law of the land It Is probable
the protestants must find their belief
in the courts, just as the Russian sugar
producers are now trying to do.

Washington, April 16. The-friends of
tho Cuban reciprocity bill won a sub
stantial victory In the house today by
carrying a motion to close general de
bate on Friday at 3 o'clock. The voto
was' 153 lo 123. Thirty-three Republi
cans voted against the motion, but this
defection was offset by 33 Democrats
who voted with the great body of tho
Republicans for It. The strength of tho
Republican opposition to tho bill,
judged by this vote, has decreased six
since tho vote was taken on tho mo
tion to go into committee ot the whole
to consider the bill, when the voto
stood 107 to SO.
The debate today was featureless.
The speakers were Messrs. Roberts

of great interest and profit.

the Wyoming conference are quartered
In every section of the town and will
even be found at Sayre, Athens and
other nearby places. As the confer

entertaining the large body of clergy

smaller towns will be less eager to

Changes in Conference.
There are changes In the Wyoming
conference to one who has looked over
the assemblage for the past five or six
years. This morning as the ministers
gathered about the communion table,
the traces of the hand of time seemed
evident indeed. The heads are whiten
ing, the steps are growing feebler, the
voices have a new note of wavering,
but close behind the faltering ones
troop new feet on tlfe floor, and young
faces with ambition and enthusiasm
flashing In the eyps, the vigor of youth
in the step, crowd after those whose
places they must take. One wonders
if, with all their modern day ad

will be more eltectlve in their work,
will comfort more hearts, more conse
