WEDNESDAY. FEB. 21, 188G.
(Sun Francisco, Feb. MtV), per S.
KIOTIVCi AT MHATTM'..
At an niiti-Chinesu meeting liultl
at .Seattle, Washington Territory,
Feb. Ctli, a uoiitinittcu was appointed
for the ostensible purpose of visit
int; Chinatown and ascertaining
whether the city sanitary regula
tions were properly observed by
Chinamen. This committee began
work on the following morning,
headed by acting Chief of Police
iMurphy. An enormous crowd, as
if by previous arrangement, followed
in its train. When a Chinaman's
house was opened in response to the
committee's knock, the crowd would
enter and begin packiugthe contents
on a wagon appearing at that junc
ture. When their household effects
were loaded, the Chinese weie them
selves placed on the wagon, and all
driven to the dock, where the
steamer Queen of the Pacilic was
lying ready to sail for San Francisco.
IS'o warning having been given, the
authorities weie totally unprepaicd
for this procedure, while the police
generally sided with the crowd and
made no effort to stop the removal.
Sheriff IWcGraw appeared on the
.scene and induced a few citizens to
assist him in endeavoring to repress
the action of the mob. His efforts
proved futile, for the crowd would
cease operations at a point where
they weie interfered with, only to
resume work elsewhere.
Upon representations from Mayor
Yeslcr, Governor Squire, who was
in the city, issued a proclamation,
warning all persons against break
ing the pence; commanding all to
return to their homes except such as
were disposed to assist the Sheriff ;
requesting the latter class to enroll
themselves under that olllcer, and
ordering the military companies of
the city to place themselves under
arms, and their commanding ofllcers
to report themselves to the Sheriff
for the purpose of rendering him
military assistance, if required, in
maintaining the law. This procla
mation was read to the crowd, but
it was received with howls of defi
ance, and had no pacifying effect.
Two local companies of militia and
three companies of home guards,
organized when the United States
troops were withdrawn on the occa
sion of previous trouble terminating,
responded as quickly as possible,
hut by the time they were ready for
action there seemed to be nothing
for them to do.
About four hundred men were
now huddled at the dock, prevented
hy the immense crowd fiom return
ing to their homes, and lefused ad
mittance to the ship without tickets.
The ofllcers of the vessel got icady
hot water hose and other means of
repelling an attempt to force the
Chinese on board. A subscription
was then taken up, enough money
licing shortly raised to pay the faies
of about a hundred. That number
were accordingly received on board,
apparently glad enough to get away.
The steamer should have sailed at
one o'clock in the afternoon, but
was detained in the hope that ar
rangements could be made for ship
ping the remainder of the Chines.
About five o'clock the militia
marched into Chinatown and took
possession, but it was thoroughly
deseitcd. A writ of habeas corpus,
alleging illegal detention of the Chi
nese on the vessel, was issued, re
turnable at ten o'clock, the Queen
of the Pacilic being enjoined from
sailing. The authorities were deter
mined that no Chinese should learo
unwillingly. The Governor tele
graphed the state of affairs to the
Secretary of War, requesting the
despatch of United States troops
fiom l'ort Townsend.
Surprise was felt that the move
ment had been arranged so quietly.
It was believed by many that the
plans were made in Tacoma, as
many prominent agitators from that
place, as well as reporters from its
two papers, arrived at Seattle the
previous day. Mayor Wcisbaeli, of
Tacoma, was also there, and it was
freely asserted that he, with others,
was engineering the movement.
Capt. Alexander, of the Queen of
the 1'acific, appeared in Court at 10
o'clock, and in answer to the sum
mons to produce the Chinamen,
made an aflidavit that he was forci
bly restrained from doing so. Judge
Greene, therefore, issued an order
to tlio Sheriff to have the Chinamen
in Court at 7: IS a. m. During the
night the streets were paraded by
the militia, sentries were stationed at
every comer and every precaution
was taken to prevent any attempt
, from filing on the Chinamen, he
sides the 100 on the Queen, about
twice as many were in the waie-
house on the Ocean Dock, guarded
, v v by the anti-Chinese committee, and,
yi 'being fed, were quietly sleeping on
blankets. To anticipato a rumored
attempt to force the Chinese on
board the Poitland train, that was
sent out at 1:30 a. m., two hours
ahead of time.
i n wiMywrt;
At an early hour on the morning
of thu 8th, the militia and the
home guards marched to the Ocean
Dock and took charge of the China
men. Previously the work of arrest
ing the leading agitators had begun,
and before daylight many of them
had been placed in jail, but only to
he balled out immediately. All
Chinamen on board the Quci'ii were
marched to the Court House by the
militia in answer to the writs of
habeas corpus sworn out the
picviousday. No opposition was
made to this move. Judge Gieenc
iiifoimed each Chinaman that lie
was at perfect llbeity to go or stay
as he chose. A vast majority chose
to leave. They were accordingly
escorted to the steamer and those
who wished to stay were escorted ttj
Up to that time there had been no
bloodshed, although the sheets weie
crowded. At noon, however, an
attack was made on the home guards
by a few hotheads. The guards
were finally oidered to fire, and re
sponded with a volley. Five persous
received the effect of the fire:
George Smith, aged thirty, shot
thiougli the right arm; Bernard
Mulrainc, twenty-live, shot through
the lung, probably fatal ; Charles
Stewart, thiity, body, right arm and
head, fatal ; Christian Scliricbcr,
left shoulder; James Murphy, spu
ria! policeman, shot through the
forearm. Many others were clubbed
or received other slight injuries.
Sheiiff McGraw received a shot
through his coal, within half an inch
of the body.
Gov. Squire issued another pro
clamation, placing the city under
martial law, which stopped all legal
proceedings, and afteiward issued a
general order, calling for enlistments
in the military service of the Terri
tory. Citizens responded in large
numbers, being oiganized into com
panies as soon as cm oiled. At
about 0:15 v. m. on the 8th, the
authorities seemed to have gained
contiol of the city, but ttiere were
uneasy appiehensions of further
