THE WYOMING MASSACRE.
IXVKSTtOATEU V A CHlNL'l. in.PHF,
SKSTATtVK. When llic news of. Ihc mussiicu' of
Chinamen at Koek Springs, AVyo
mirig Tcriilory, reached Wnshing
ton, I). C, the Cliincse Minister im
mediately telegraphed to Vice-Consul
Hoc of this city to procccil to the
scene, make an investigation ami
also rcpicsent the intcicsts of the
foreigners in whatever inquiry the
Government might institute. The
Chinese Secretary of Legation was
sent fiom Washington to join Mr.
Bee, who was accompanied by legal
counsel, and the AVnr Department
ordered General McCook and Lieut
enat Groesbeck, with a detail of sol
diers, to escort them. Colonel lice
left San Frnncfcco on the Mth of
September and has just returned.
He found at Rock Springs the Gov
ernment Directors of the Union
Pacitlc Railroad, Judge Savage of
Omaha, Mr. Ilanna of Ohio and Mr.
Alexander of Georgia. They made
an investigation, of which suminaiy
accounts hac already been pub
lished. The white miners wcie in
vited to present, with all possible
freedom, every grievance which they
might have. They failed, according
to Colonel Bee, to make any serious
charges against the Chinese. It was
not claimed that theyweie under
cutting the whites in the price, of
labor, the Chinamen lccciving ex
actly the same ratc4 and making
from $3 to $4 a day, while the earn
ings of the other miners ranged fiom
$3 to 88. The examination of wit
nesses was during the whole inquiry
in the hands of the Knights of
Labor, one of whom is a Justice of
the Peace, and acted as Coroner :n
reference to the victims. Consul
Bee stated yesterday to a Chronicle
reporter that there were seventy-five
white men engaged in the massacre.
Eighteen gave themselves up and
were lclcascd upon bail of 300
each. The outbreak of the trouble
was immediately due to the whites
claiming that a section of the mine
which had been assigned by the pit
boss to the Chinese belonged to
them. They entered it and attacked
the Chinamen with the handles of
their picks. All of the latter w ere
then ordered to the surface. The
whites armed themselves with gnus,
the women with pistols, knives and
clubs, and they mercilessly
slaughtered the Mongolians in the
streets and their houses. It is
proven that the wives of the miners
brained some of the victims, and
that others of them plundered the.
cabins and set them on fire.
a i.oxk iimp. nnr:wiN(i.
"The attack was not," declared
Colonel Bee, "the result of any sud
den impulse or provocation. It had
been brewing for three months.
The Chinamen and Mormons at work
in the mines could not be induced
to strike as desired by the Knights
of Labor, and hence it was neces
sary in order to carry out the de
signs of the organization that the'
be gottcrr l id of or else forced to
quit the region. The plot to preci
pitate a conflict was laid for the day
prior to its actual occurrence, but
miscarried because the Chinamen
did not work on that day. The
whites had taken possession of the
Chinamen's section and had pre
pared a blast and were there in
readiness to receive the latter when
the' should arrive. The atrocities
committed are beyond description.
The oillccrs and soldiers who are
irow at Rock Springs say .that iir
many combats with Indians they
have never witnessed any ti aits of
human nature so hideous and repul
sive as those which the miners dis
played. Not one of them is a citi
zen of the United States or has over
announced any intention of becoming
.such. Six of them called upon Gov
ernor Warren of Wyoming and pre
sented a demand for what they
termed their rights, lie asked them
if they were citizens. They said
no ; they did not care to lie." Tire
surrender of the eighteen rioters
was u farce, as was also the inquest.
The inquest was held on twenty-one
bodies, and wo dug up twenty-nine
soon after our arrival. There were
also fifteen Chinamen missing; the
dead bodies of two of them have
been found in the hilU. One poor
fellow crawled three miles, being
unable to walk, and was four days
in reaching the railroad, lie almost
starved, and suffered such an agony
of thirst that he diank his own
fluids, Wild animals tore out the
bowels of one of the wounded beforo
Ills life was extinct. I offered a
reward of $15 for every corpse that
could bo found and brought into
the town, but, of course, no one
would date bring one in if offered a

"What will the Chinese Govern
ment do concerning the massacre?"
"I cannot yet say, I shall mako
my, report this week. We lmvo
taken the evidence of about 700
''IIow jjjitny Chinamen were there
at Rook Springs?"
"About GOO, and about 1200 in
the whole of that mining region."
"How many troops were thcie
when you left?"
"Six infantry companies at Rock
Springs and four wero at Evanston.
General Schofield was on the spot
himself. In my opinion there is
only one w ay to deal with the of
fenders in this case, aird that is by
martial law. The mlnciswere im
ported directly from Europe by the
Union Pacific Railroad Company,
which fancied that by thus doing it
could develop the country more
rapidly. The company has lately
given them to understand that they
cannot dictate to it, and it is not, I
think, disposed to favor them at the
expense of the Chinese.
"If there wero to be u sliiko in
the mines all of tho railways between
the Missouri river and the Rocky
mountains could be deprived of their
coal supply. The matter is a far
more serious one for the Govern
ment than even for the Union Paci
fic, as the United Stales cannot get
their mails carried without coal.
Some sharp, decisive measures in
regard to these miners arc necessary,
or it will be impossible to tell at
what moment they may not lepeat
their recent outrages. No attorney's
life would be safe in that legion
without an escoit. They stone sol
diers who sit aggie from the camp.
The Chinamen resumed woik on last
Monday, but the presence of the
troops in force is all that prevents
the whites fiom renewing their at
tack. Han Francisco Chronicle.

THE undersigned, a Committee of Di
rectors of the Equitable Life As.
Burance Society of the United States,
appointed to formulate the views of the
Board on the advantages offered by the
Bociety to the public, report:
1st The Society issues all the approv
ed forms of assurance, including Ordi
nary Life, Erdowment and Tontine po
licies. It is immaterial to the Directors
which form of policy is taken by in
2d The Life and Endowment forms
of policy provide for annual cash divi
dends and a surrcmlor value; arc indis
fiutablo after three years and pnj able
mmcdiatcly after proof of death.
3d Tho premiums on n Tontine po
licy are tho same as on tho Ordinary
Life, but, while the latter is only pay
ablo in the event of d?nth, tho holder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
the whole of tho reserve and the accu
mulated profits in rash at the end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years aic past,
he can, without any larger premium
thun on an ordinary policy, secure these
4th Experience shows that tho leturn
paid in cash on maturing Tontine po
licies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that the average cost of the
assurance will bo only about the interest
on the premiums.
5th Tontine policies, like others, are
paid in full in tho event of death at any
tlmo during tho term of the policy, and
aro incontestable after three years, and
payable Immediately after duo proof of
Cth Experience shows that the mor.
tallty is lower among Tontino policy,
holders, as tho better lives seek this
kind of assuiances, which is a consider
able source of profit.
7th Tontino policies will bo mode
non-forfcitable under tho laws of tho
State, if so desired at tho time tho as.
suranco is effected.
8th Tho Tonlino system Is fnir and
Just; its accounts are accurately kept,
separate from all other business; the
funds judiciously Invested and improv
ed, and the accumulated profits faith
fully guarded and properly apportioned.
Otli Tho Society has since lis organl.
zntlon transacted a larger amount of
now business lliun any other company,
while its new business for tho first half
of the present year Is $1,750,000 larger
than that of tho first half of 1881, It
