Sydney, June 22 , In connection with tho cable about the Chinese boycott of American goods the Sydney Chinese merchants have passed a resolution endorsing the action of the Commercial Guild of China. A branch of the Chinese Empire Reform Association here has received from America the particulars which led up to the action at Tientsin. It appears that whi'e negotiations were in progress for a Commercial treaty between China and America, the latter proposed to enact a law refusing Chinese merchants the right to conduct business in t.h« States.
