HAZARD'S ALLEGED ASSURANCES THKNTON, TUK3DAY AKTKllNOON, JANUARY 28, 1890. TWO What the Chinese Minister Says the becre- tary Said While the Unr alined Treaty with China Befnu Mr B iyard'8 Washington News At ABHIt.GTON, Jan 28 reply to a res olution of the senate of the 8th inst the president has sent to the senate a report from the secretary of state, with accom- panying documents, in relation to the exe- cution of the acts of confess approved May 6, and Oct 1, 1888, concerning Chinese The secretary of state forwards all tbe cor- respondence which has taken place between the state department and the Chinese gov- ei ument on this subject Under the date of Oct 10, 1888, the Chinese minister com- plained thnt a number of Chinese laborers holding return certificates had boon refused permission to Innd at Ban Francisco The state department forwarded to the Chinese minister a copy of the law of Oct 1 1888, under which they were excluded, and under Hate of Jan. the Chinese minister complained at some length that this law is m violation of the treaty of 1880 He also claimed that Secretary Bayard had assured him during the negotiation of tbe unratified lieatythat the president would veto any legislation which violated the treaty then existing Mr. Bayard's Denial. In a reply to this letter under date of Feb 2, 1889, Mr Bayard wrote "I must assure you with great distinctness that you labor under misapprehension, and that no such assurance was made or could have been made by me in the course of the conversa- tion prior to the negotiation of the treaty what Mr. Bayard Said In a letter dated Feb Chang Yen Hoon, the Chinese minister, wrote to Mr Bayard that he regietted that he should have written anything to cause Mr Bayard embarrassment, that he had not intened to hold him responsible for the action of con- g.flss or the president, but he bad under stood Mr Bayard "to be giving me your view of how hia excellency the president regarded tbe proposed legislation then pend- ing in etc He did not understand, however, that this "was made in the form of a promise He inclosed a memorandum of his mteiview with Mr. Bayard, attested by Shun Cbean Ponand D. W Bartlett, of the Chinese lega tion, who were present In this memoran dnm Mr Bayard is quoted as saying "Un less yon and I soon agree upon some satis- factory measures in our negotiations, con giess will certainly enact laws regardless of the treaty stipulation Should such be the oase, they would violate and the president would of course veto them, but still the executive would not like to raise any difficulty with congress As congress has such object in view it would be bettei to meet its wishes, etc China Did Not wish Exclusion. Proceeding, the Chinese minister says fur ther, that he was Binder the impression" that he could uot duenn officially the president's message to congi-ooa, but as Mr Bayard has stated in his note that that message reached "the irresistable conclusion that the passage of the act of exclusion was m consonance with the expressed wishes of he feels it his "imperative duty to enter his respect ful but eai nest protest against any such as- sumption The act, he says, was m direct opposition to the wishes of China __ How the Bill Under Hate of Feb 28, 1889, Mr Rayard Vviote to the Chlnene minister that he was not disposed to question the accuracy of the recollection of the minister and the gentle- men of his suite He then says in explana tion of the president's signing the Scott bill that the fact that the news of the rejection of the treaty between the United States and China cflmp from RreatLBritam "gave Im- petus to tbe popular belief that influences exterior to the two nations had boon at etc. Under this condition of affairs the Scott bill "was suddenly and without notice brought forward m confess and passed with an unanimity in both houses which palpably rendered an interposition by a veto of the executive wholly futile The Celestial Grows Sarcastic. In a letter written July 8, 1889, to Mr Blaine tha Chinese minister speaks of the decision of the supreme court of the United States in the Chinese matter. The supreme court, he says, has decided that the act of October, 1888, Is in contravention of ex- preoo stipulations of the, treaty, but it is done in the exercise of sovereign power vested in congress, and must be respected nn tho supremo law of the 'an11 The su preme court cannot inquire reasons for this action were good or bad. The minister continues "Yon will pur- don me; Mr. Secretary, if I express my amazement tbat such adnctnne should be published to tun world by the anguet trib- unal, for whose members, by personal ac- quaintance, I entertain such profound re spect It forces upon me the conviction that in the three years which 1 have resided in this country I have not been able fully and correctly to compmhend the principles nnd systems of your great government In my country we have acted upon the convic- tion that where two nations deliberately and solemnly entered upon treaty stipula- tions they thereby foriued a sacred com- pact, from which they could not be honor ably dischaged except through friendly ne- gutiAtinnfl and A new agnttment Bli Five Vvvioni. He then Mr BlaWs interposition with the president to have the iviongs of tbe Chinese righted. He calls attention to tbe facts that: Fh.t The existing treaty relations were bronght about at the express solicitation of the United States. The action of is not justified by Its conduct toward other nationa nor by any action of tho Chlnwu Third The action of confess is virtually a denun elation of all existing treaties, an in- vitation to China to terminate all diplo- matic and commercial relations. The action of congress must be held to be an affront to the government of China. The government of the United States must accept accountability for all the Injuries and damages resulting from the enforce- ment of tho net of congress Hnyoi nnd Arthur Complimented Thesn fhfi points tho minister elaborates arguri nt o m 1 ngHi In conclusion he says no tu l vmy will lw found whereby tlm 1 i imnrmnl "d notion Of congress in i but idont had followed II n Irr-ppsorfl, Presulf nt i it wns nttoin) by o in h it} ftij ill n T Irivn fnllirod diti cif O i H KXIO "Vrn, (ni pi it i i H ft nnvr regulation llR 1 a Inut 1 wmcn worked great hardships on tho Chi- now This regulation required the deposit by Chlnt.. In of a bond of fStt jyf Ine minister questioned tne legality of this regulation established by the score tary of the treasury and quoted from an opinion of the attorney general m support of his position In a letter to the secretary of state de- fining his position on this matter, Secretary Windom wrote Nov 30, 1889, explaining the establishment of this regulation and saying "It will be observed that it is in the case of laborers only that a regulated transit is prescribed by this department. It seenin equally clear that to permit nn nn regulated transit of that class of Chinese subjects would be equivalent to inviting a practical nullification of all the laws pro- hibiting the immigration or retui n of per sons of that class to the United States Mr incloses a letter from the solicitor general nffil mmg the l ight of the department to establish this regulation. Forwarding these communications, the sec- retary of state writes that it is the intention of the secretary of tbe treasury to modify the regulations so that transportation com- panies may give general bonds for the trans- portation of Chinese laborers. China Likes It Not. The C hmese minister writes (Dec 16) that this modification does not in any manner remove his objection Neither the Chinese government, nor its in the United States he says, have any control or influence over the transportation com pantes m this counfry, and it is understood that these companies centering at the port of New York (through which the Chinese residents of Cuba principally puss) are nn willing to gn e an) bond for tnis traffic the nnnistei says that the passage of the act ef Oct. manifested an open disregard of treaty obligations on the part of the legislate e department of the govei nment of the United States If any thing should occur, he sajs "to make it appear that a similar spirit influenced the conduct of any of the e departments of that government, Its effect would create upon my government I fear, a most un favorable impression A RAILROAD HOLOCAUS l.
