1862. A United States legation was established at Pekin. 1861-67. Anson Burlingame was United States minister to China. 1867: China appointed Burlingame her special ambassador to
the treaty powers of the world. 1868. By the Treaty of Washington, sometimes referred to as
the Burlingame Treaty, from the name of the man who negotiated it, China first officially accepted the principles of international law. Ex-territorial clauses were included in all
treaties. 1879. The first bill limiting Chinese immigration was passed; it
was vetoed by President Hayes, on the ground that it
violated existing treaties. A commission was then appointed which went to Pekin and
negotiated a treaty, giving the United States the power to limit, suspend, or regulate, but not to prohibit, the immigra
tion of Chinese laborers. Students, teachers, merchants, travellers for curiosity, were still
to be admitted freely. The right of laborers and servants already here to come and
go at pleasure was provided for and all privileges of “ most
favored nations were reserved. 1881. This treaty was ratified by the Senate. 1882. An act providing for its execution was passed. 1888. A treaty was negotiated prohibiting for twenty years the
immigration of Chinese laborers into the United States, but providing for the return under certain conditions of any laborer who had wife, child, parent, or property to the value of $1000, in the United States.
