The bill to restrict Chinese immigration
which has just passed the House and
awaits the approval of the President to go
into operation as a law, prohibits the
coming of Chinese laborers, skilled or unskilled,
to this country for the n&& twenty
yeurs. The measure is the most important
one that has been enacted by Congress
for many years, as it is directly in
the interest of the great mass of workiug
people in all parts of the land, who have
found their meansof livelihood slowly but
surely leaving them in the competition
with the pauper labor of the Chinese Empire.
It checks in our midst the spread of
idolatry, leprosy and prostitution, will
help to prerve the dignity and respectability
of labor, which the workingmen of
the land have the light to expect the government
will foster and protect. The
passage of the bill had become necessary. It
s a measure of protection the country
sorely needed and demanded as the only
effective remedy for the evils now existing
and the greater ones to come if the tide
of Chinese immigration is permitted to
flow unchecked to this country. The Democrats
in Congress stood by the bill while
the buk of the opposition came from the
Republican, side New England opposing it
THE BOSS LIAB.
Auotlif r Confession by George Ellis one
of tfce Ashland Murderers, in n'hicii He
does Back on His First Statement.
Special to the Cincinnati Commercial.
Lkxinqton, Ky., March 23. George
EI.Ih, one of the Ashland murderers, is
the boss confessor of the day. In fact, be
discounts anybody at that kind ot amusement.
He has made another confession-He
spys Neal and Craft are innocent, and
makes an affidavit to it.
Your correspondent heard this news
as it rapidly flew around town to-day, and
he proceeded to run it down, and fonnd
out that there was some truth about it.
The man who took Ellis' alleged affidavit
was found, and refused to disclose any
any thing about it. A ma,n who had seen
the paper was then vfound, and he furnished
these facts about it:
"For several days, or rather nights,
Ellis has been seeing ghosts and other visions.
He says he has seen on three oo
citions the forms of his victims, with the
dreadful wounds from which the blood
was flowing, enter his cell and stood by
his bed, telling him to tell the truth or he
would surely go to .tho devil, and that
these apparitions have so worked on him
as to make his mind once more clear and
bring back his former reason. He says
the spirits told him that if he would tell
the truth about the matter they would
haunt him no more. So he proceeds, with
the aid of an affidavit, to tell that Neal
and Craft are innocent of the murder ; that
he and two negroos whom he hired are the
real mur.lerers; that on the night of the
murder they all went to the house of the
victims, and after outraging them, killed
them, the negroes holding them down
while he murdered them. After they had
committed their hellish work they were
creeping away from the house, when they
suddenly came upon Neal and Craft, who
were going towards the residence of the
victims. They hid in the bushes until
these two had passed, when it occurred to
him to fix the crime on them ! That he
then left the negroes and fell in with Neal
and Craft, and persuaded them to go with
him to a house where some damsels of
easy virtue resided, and on their way he
persuaded them to creep through the
fence and pass around and away from the
house where he just tommitted his' crime
in order that they might not be seen. That
after arriving at the place they were in
search of, he, after remaining awhile,- left
on some excuse, and going to Neal's house,
succeeded in stealing a coat that Neal had
worn that day, and going back to his victims
smeared the coat with their blood,
and then hid it whore he thought it would
soon be found.
"That fearful the negroes would become
scared and tell on him, he persuaded one
to leave the country, and the other one
refused to leave and can stili be found.
He gave their names, but we could not
learn them. Cor.
" He says that he induced Neal and
Craft to go with him to that place that he
might be seen in their company, in case
he should be arrested and tried, that he
could easily turn State's evidence and get
clear by fixing the guilt on them. He
says he had a feeling from the moment he
committed the crime that ho would be
caught up with, that lie felt like some invisible
power was holding him back; he
tried to get away, tried to leave the country,
but that he could not go something
he could not tell held him back. He felt
that he would be arrested and convicted,
and after turning State's evidence on Neal
and Craft, he still knew that he would be
hung, and that no power o.i earth could
"Ho says he is living in torture more
than all that is painted of Hades, and he
wants to get out of it by telling. tho truth
and suffering for his crime; that he has
lied about these two men enough, and
wants them to go clear.'1
And further my informant saith not.
From all that I can learn about it there
must bo some truth in it, and the affidavit
is doubtless held back by the man who has
it, to furnish to the proper authorities
when Ellis has his trial.
But George Ellis is a hard man to believe.
He has made so many "confessions"
and said so much about this case that one
don't know what to believe. But, in justice
to innocent men, if they are innocent
and in justice to the muidorer Ellis, if he is
a murderer, let us hope lie has at last
told the truth.
Ellis says Heflin is a fraud, and that he
didn't know what ho was doing when he
did all his great(?)detective work in hunting
down Neal and Craft.
The confession must bo taken for what
it is worth, but to those who know all tho
evidence olicited at tho trial, it is very
oasjj to seo that Ellis' confession is a very
straight one, and brings out a good many
things proven at fio trial.
Governor Rlsukburn, in respiting Neal
and Craft, said ho would let thorn live
until their innocence was established or
ihoir guilt was firmly fixed in his mind.
