They are Senator ljarvey and Sum

While Highgate was giving his testi

published in the RejiMer last summer
as villainous, when -the author of said
article, who was present, seized an
iron paper-weight and threw it at
Highgate, which very nearly struck
several persons, and . was about to
throw again when parties interfered
and quieted him. Highgate arose from
his seat, saying he would protect him
self unless he was protected by tho
court. Considerable excitement ex
ists on account of thu mutter and its
causes. Both sides have friends, and
they are desirous of maintaining their
respective claims.'

SAGE TO THE SENATE.
lie Sajg Tbfj 5 list Be Protected
la All I heir Treaty Bight
and Prirllege.
Washington, March 2. The IM
rtent sent the following inesstige to
Congress to-dav :
To Ihe Senate aod Houm of Rt.r aura-
ur ;
It is the constitution duty of tlu
President to recommend to the vmv
sideration of the Congress, from time
to time, such measures as ho shall
judge necessary and expedient. In no
matter can the necessity of this lie
more evident than when the good
faith of tbe United States, under the
solemn obligation of treaties with
foreign powers, is concerned. The
question of the treatment of the suli
jects of China sojourning within tlie
jurisdiction of the United States,
presents such a matter for I lie urgent
and earnest consideration of the execu
tive and of Congress. In my first an
nual message Hxm the assembling of
the present Congress, I adverted to
this question.
The President here quotes tbe pas
sage from his message upon the Chi
nese question, and continues: At the
time I wrote this the shocking occur
rences at Kock Springs, in Wyoming
Territory, were fivsh in the niuids ot
all, and had been recently presented
anew to the attention of Otis govern
ment bv the Chines- Minister in a
note which, while not unnaliinill v
exhibiting some misconception of our
federal system of administnition in the
Territories (while they are not in the
exercise of the full measure of the
sovereign self-government pertaining
to the States of the Union), presents
in truthful terms the main features of
the cruel outrage there ierpctrated
upon
INOFFENSIVE SIBJKCTS OK CHINA.
In the investigation of thu Rock
Springs outbreak, and the ascertain
ment of the facts on which tho Chi
nese Minister's statements rest, tho
Chinese representatives were aided by
the agents of tho United States, and
the reports submitted having leen
thus framed, and recounting facts
within the knowledge of witnesses on
lsth sides, possess an impartial truth
fulness winch could not fail to give
them great impressiveness. The facts
which, so far, are not controverted or
affected by any exculpatory or miti
gating testimony, show the murder of
a number of Chinese subjects in Sep
tember last at Uock Springs, the
wounding of many others and the
spoliation of the property of all when
tlie unhappy survivors had been driven
f;om their habitations. Then; is no
allegation that tho victims by any law
less or disorderly act on tbc'r part
contributed to bring about a collision.
On the contrary, it appears that the
law-abiding disposition of these peo
ple, who were sojourners in our midst,
under the sanction of hospitality and
express treaty obligations, is made the
pretext for the attack upon them.
This outrage upon law and treaty en
gagements was committed by a lawless
mob. None of the aggressors, happily
for the national good tame, appear by
the reports to have been citizens of
the United States. They were aliens,
engaged in that remote district as
mining laborers, who became excited
against
THE CHINESE LAIKHIKKS,
as it would Benin, because of their re
fusal to join them in a strike to secure
higher wages. The oppression f Chi
nese subjects by their rivals in the
competition for labor does not difl'er
in violence and illegality from that ap
plied to other classes of native or
alien labor. All are equally under the
protection of the law and equally en
titled to enjoy the benefits of assured
public order. Was there no treaty in
existence referring to the rights of
Chinese subjects, did tbeycomo hither
as all other strangers who voluntarily
resort to this land of freedom, of self-
government and of law, here peace
ably to win their bread and live their
lives, there can be no question that
they would be entitled still to the
same measure of protection from vio
lence, and the same free forum for tho
redress of their grievances as any
other aliens. So far ns the treaties
between the United States and China
stipulate for the treatment for the
Chinese subjects actually in the
United States as the citizens or sub
jects of the "most favored nation" are
treated, they create no new status for
them--they simply recognize and
confirm a general and existing rule,
AI'CLICAni.E TO ALL ALIENS AI.IKK,
for none are favored above others bv
domestic law, anil none by foreign
treaties, unless it bo the" Chinese
themselves in some respects, for bv
the third article of the tmity of No
vember 17, 1880, between the United
States and China, it is provided that,
"Article J If Chinese laborers, or
Chinese of any other class, now either
permanently or temporarily residing
in the territory of tlie United States,
meet with ill-treatment at the hands
of any other person, tbe government
of the United States will exert all its
power to devise measures for their
protection, and to Beeure the same
rights, privileges, immunities and ex
emptions as may be enjoyed by tbe
citizens or subjects of tbe most favored
nation, and winch are entitled by
treaty." This article may be held to
constitute a special privilege for Chi
nese subjects in the United States as
compared with other aliens not that
it creates any peculiar rights which
others do not share, but liecause in
case of ill-treatment of the Chinese in
the United States, this government is
bound to "exert all its power to devise
measures for their protection," by
securing to them the rights to w hich,
equally with any and all other for
eigners, they are entitled. Whether
it is now incumbent upon the I lilted
States to amend their general laws, or
devise new measures in this regard. I
do not consider in the present
communication, but confine my
self to the particular Hiint
raiseil by the outrage and
MASSCKK AT ROCK SPRINGS. s
The note of the Chines' Minister,
and the documents which accompany
it, give, I believe, an uncxaggerated
statement of the lamentable incident,
and present impressively the regret
able circumstances that the proceed
ings in the name of justice for the as
certainment of the crime and fixing
the resismsiliility therefor were a
ghastly mockery of justice. So long
as the Chinese Minister, under his in
structions, makes this the basis of an
ajvpeal to the principles and convic
tions of mankind, ii'.rx.vptinn can lc
taken, but when he pies further,
and, taking B ln precedent tlie ac
tion of the Chinese government
in past instiiim-, where the
lives of Aliieri. :in citizens mid their
proiMTty in China have U-en en
dangered, ntyiies , tcemrncal obliga

to deny most iiiphatn ally the con
clusions I seek- to dra- ns Utlie ex
istence of such a liability, ami the
right of thx- Chiiese g'eraiiA'iit to
insist iiisiii it. I draw the attention
of the lonpvw to the latter part of
thu note of the Svrrtarv of State of
February 1S in reply to the
Chinese Mill' tcr's representations, and
to invne especial consideniliou ol tlie
regent reasons by w Inch lie reached
conclusions that whilst the United
States govern iwent is under im obliga
tion, whether bv the expres term of
its treaties with China, or the princi
ples of international law, to indemnify
tlu'se subjects lot tssscs caned by
such means and under tlie admitted
circumstances, yet. that in view of tbe

tbe Knllroad Mlrlkeat far! Worth.
Foiit Worth, Tk.v., March 2. There
is universal surprise in the city at the
great railroad strike which began here
last evening. There was no intima
tion that it was coming. At 5.3(1 the
whistle at tho round-house blew, and
at once every machinist, vur repairer,
section hand', baggage handler, and in
fact, every man who lielongs to As
sembly No. 101, Knights of Labor,
stopped work. The business of tbe
Texas Pacific and Missouri Pacific was
almost completely suspended here.
Three hundred men had stoprs'd work
in nn instant A- The order came from
Sedalia. The causes are said to be
numerous, but the chief one is that
$1.50 per day is demanded as a day's
wages for unskilled laborers, w ho now
receive J 1.1. ' per day. Other reasons
are the refusal to make eight hours a
day's work, and tho discharge of men
at 'Marshall. No freight trains went
.nut last night, and all the freight en
gines are in the round-house. No
railroad work of any description is
being done, except tiie movement of
liassenger trains, and no one is left to
liandle the baggage hut the baggage
master.

Cormick Works opened as usu il ttis
morning. There were large irowds of

presence of the police, prevented Htv
outbreak on their part, even though
they bad contemplated one. Five
hundred and forty men reported for
work an increase of 2C0 over yester
day and tho managers of the works
exjiect that the number will be in
creased to 800 to-morrow. The nth
cers think the strike is practically
ended.
Strike at Ljachbnrg, Va.
LvNciuii'iwi, Va., March 2. A striko
has been inaugurated at the Old Do
minion Iron and Nail-Works in this
city and the mills have stopped work.
Aeompromise is probable. The Arbi
tration Committee of the Knights of
Labor and the stockholders are in ses
sion. The strike was caused by a no
tice of a reduction of wages on March
1st of 50 cents a ton.
The Slrlke ol the Texas aad Pari He.
St. Louis, Mo., March 2. Ltsr ad
vices regarding tbe strike on the Tpiih
and Pacific lailioad give an interview
with Gov. Brown, one of tbe receivers
of the road, which in subfitince is as
follows:
"The workmen in the shop at Mar
shall, Big Springs and Foit Worth
walked out yesterday, but no em
ploye of tbe company has ever laid
any grievance before the receivers or
tbeir agents. If any man felt ag
grieved aad had expressed it, we
should immediately have looked into
it) merits, and would have righted
any wioog we found. We are deter
mined to protect our employes against
aoy wrongs from ourselves or our
agents, or from outside intermeddlers.
We claim, however, the right to ad
just onr differences, if any there be,
between ourselves and our employes
without the mediation of neople who
are not in our employ. We pay em
ployes prompily, and we claim they
shall prefer their grievances direct t)
up, and cot ti tbe officious interfer
ence of persons wbo do net appear on
our rolls and who are unknown to us."
From other sources it is stated tint
the strike is likely to tecome gpnersl
on all tho Gould lines in IVxhs rs
well as tbe Texas Pacific, and that th
trouble may extend to other roads in
the State.
A kemkhv resting on the basis of in
trinsic worth demands the confidence
of all. Dr. Hull's Cough Syrup is known
and nwd most satisfactorily through

sales. Your drnggist keeps it.

New York, .March 2. A breeze has
l'ii stirred up among the otlb tills
coiiiecUd with the construct ion of
newCroton aqueduct. Tlie chief en
gineer of this great ami cont'y work is
named Church, and the construction
engineer i. H. S. Craven, air orliccr in
tbe United Stafrs navv. Some time
ugo Craven laid i-harycs of dere liction
of duty against Chief Kngincer
Church licforv tl Board Aque
duct Commissioner. Tim- result
has been an informal demand
on Crawn for his reigiiation. Craven
to-dav addressed a letter to tbe tmird
in which ho refuses to resign mi the
ground that such a course wahM le
tantamount to an aduiission that his
charges against Church were, untrue.
He reiterates his charges smiinst
the chief engineer, and assert that
systematic efforts are ls'ing made to
get him out of otliiv in order that
ROOkKllNKSM IM TUB KXKTTIO
of the contract may have full play.
He charges that viuioimattempts nave
been made to compel him to with
draw, or, if he remains, to close his
eyes to open violations of contract,
for tbe bencHt of tlie contractors. On
one occasion, he says, he was threat
ened that unless he quit seeing so
much the Secretary of the Navy
would be prevailed on to return biiii
to bis regular naval duties. He
says be can prove that inferior ma
sonry has been ucirptcd by Kngiiuier
Church after its rejection, by the
w riter and two or three inspectws;
that wooden tiniU'm are being put up
to supply the phuv of masonry, and
that tuulieKs arc Is-ing paid for twice.
He intimates that the Board of Com
missioners even do not show proper
zeal for thv enforcement of honesty in
the work.

Troable Over tbe Racial Eqaallty
Qacellea.
Gainesville, Q a., February 28. On
Thursday night, in tbe Arlington
Hotel, a rn'ty of settlemen were
severely criticising the action of thu
rronibitionlBta in bringing tne colored
Bishop, Turner, from Atlanta, meet
ing him with a carriage and a band ot
music, attempting to obtain a room
and meals for him at the Hudson
House and in general making so much
of him. They denounced the action
of the Prohibitionist Committee as
tending to enconrtgi the negro in the
demand for civil rights. A Masia
cbusetts man, who drnms for
a Baltimore house, took op
the gauntlet In favor of. the colored
bishop, and s'out y maintained the
negro's right to occupy the same
hotel, sit at Ihefuaie tables, and, if he
should cboof.e, t marry a white girl.
This h st remark came "near result ing
in a personal difficulty. But friends
interfered, and the Massachusetts
man was earnestly advised to degitt in
making any more such remarks. He
was bent on arguing tbe equality ques
tion, however, into the people, and
went to tbe court-house. After lis
tening to the speech of the biBhon, be
came back etill more enthused. Noth
ing could exceed his admiration lor
him. He asserted that be would
rather have his daughter marry such a
negro than an ignorant white man.
Though urged not to do so, he began
anain next morning, and male him
self so obnoxious that, late in the
afternoon, a party of citizens waited
on him, and were about to lay violent
hands on bim, bnt desisted on hie re
treating.' He bad contracted to fur
nish parties here with gcods, but the
order was countermanded. In fulfill
ment of his promises he left last nlgt t,
and will probably steer clear of Gaines
ville for the future.

rels ol bis gnu, loaded wiih bin k lmt,
at ilUain, striking bun in tbe N ad
ami killing Kim instantly. Ihe nir
derer tlu'ii deliberately witiked up to
tbe liody of his victim and shot Van
through the Ixwk of the bead, to
make sire tbH hishlondv aork ;
completed. This is considered one t
tbe coldest-blooded ami mont delib
erate murlem that lias ever Wm com
mitted in Yirgi&ia. It occurred in
tU presence of a man named Mor
ris, who, with tlu- murdered man
was uuaimcd. Tbe murderer made
hia escape, but efforts are bcinu
made to capture to him, ami there is
strong talkot lyiiclimg if lie is caught.
William P. Kiin, tlx murdered man,
was a prominent I li 'publics n and took
an active part, in politics, and roc a
long time was supervisor of Sussex
county. A few veara ago he and a
man named T. VV. Atkinson became
involved in v diflicultv, during w hU h
Atkinson was tabbed by I'm i ri and in
stantly killed. Itaiti was arrested, tried
and acquitted, having I sit defended
by able counsel. Bain, wbo was mur
dered yesterday,, stands now imlicuil
in the County Ciurt of Sussex
for an attempted rape on Otiiiury
ltitin's w ife, for w hich olfense he was
to have been tried in the County Court
on next Thursday. It is understood
that recent developments have pmvvu
that the charges brought agaimt him
could not have been sustained, aad
that on next Thursday the attorney
for the Commoitwiiilth would hate
asked lb" Court for tbe acquittal of
the licensed. The murderer and his
victim arc married, and alsmt thirtv
tive years of age. The murder is the all
absorbing topic of conversation in the
neighborhood in which it occurred, in
asmuch ns tbe parties are prominent
and highly connected. The Common
wealth s Attorney savs that the people
of Sussex county are good and law
abiding citizens, and that if the mur
derer is caught and lynched before
the authorities can prevent it, be
shall use the utmost diligence to as
certain the names of the lynchers,
ami have them arrested and properlv
punished. It was only a couple of
weeks ago that Bain, the murdered
man, had his store and contents
burned. At the time of the tire be
was asleep in the building, ami barely
escaped with Ins hie.
