Randall,
There is no title on IMDb of Chinese Laundry (1895), so I presume that you mean Chinese Laundry Scene (1895).

It is worth noting that this title already has the aka title of Robetta And Doretto [No.2] as it was the title used in the USA when the 1895 film was released in 1894.....I know what I am saying is contradictory but it worth being clear.

The short is also credited with being an USA film, so where the "original title" was used if not in the USA release then I am not sure!

It also raises questions on the year of 1895 assigned to Robetta and Doretto, No. 1, since 1 would be before 2 I presume....perhaps even it puts Robetta and Doretto, No. 3 in doubt as these things tended to be churned out in short times back then.

So you see your factually incorrect subject line (wrong title) has raised a lot of other questions - even after a casual glance by me however nothing will be changed because you wrote two sentences on this forum....and the use of bold, underline and ALL CAPS to explain wrong and correct won't change that either.....facts and evidence are really better tools....

I have no knowledge of these films or the period - if you do then is it possible you could help resolve the questions and then we can make changes based on the evidence?
