Monday Senator Foraker made a strong speech in the senate in opposition to the pending Chinese exclusion bill. He said that the measure was not only violative of our treaty relations with China, but that its enactment would materially hurt the cotton trade of the South. Mr. Foraker argued that Europe could take but little more cotton than she was now using, and that it behooved us to look to the far East as a new field for cotton goods. China afforded that field, provided we did not enact hostile legislation against her people. He added that with our possessions in the Philippines, we could easily control the eastern trade if we acted discreetly.
