MAT BE BAD, BUT CONSTITUTIONAL
S3 Say Six of the J nut Ices. Fuller, Field
and Brewer Dissenting, the California
Jurist Very Vigorously Points from tlit
Majority Opinion a Keml by Gray A
SC.OOO.OOO Job with Only 816.800 Avail
able to Do It with.
Wasiiixgtox, May 1C The Chinese must
fro. The supreme court has said it, but
with the dissenting voices of Chief Justice
Fuller and Justices Urewer and Field. The
court was packed with lawyers when the
decision was read by Justice Gray which
upholds the constitutionality of the Ge:iry
law. The law is a drastic one. It denies
the right of bail and imprisons any China
man not registering after May ? last, the
Imprisonment to be for a year, and after
that it banishes htm from the couutry: It
is an axiom of law that an accused person
must be proved guilty. The law reverst
that axiom. The government is not culled
upon to show guilt. The accued must
establish his innocence, ami to this fin!
must produce the testimony of at least one
white witness. If he fails to prove his in
nocence he is deemed guilty.
A Well Settled I'rinciple.
Justice Gray said iu announcing the
judgment of the court that the power t:
any nation to restrict or prohibit the im
migration of any aliens into the country,
or to require Mich aliens already in the
country to remove therefrom, was a weil
settled principle of international law and
confirmed by n unbroken line of decisions
in this court. The legislative power of the
government had not transcended any of
its constitutional limitations in the act un
der consideration. If congress makes a
law inconsistent with a treaty, it may give
foreign nation the right to complain and
to take such action as it may deem for its
own interest, but the duty of the courts of
the United States is clear and they must
recognize its force.
ItiKlits of tlie l.eKiilattire.
The legislature has a right to preserrhe '
what evidence shall be demanded before its '
judicial tribunals. It was within its power
to provide that those ali ens who have be"n
within the Vni'ed States a year without. t;et
tiug ont a certificate should be deported. It
had the right to deline what witnesses
should he heard; n right to protect the
courts against testimony from persons who
have no regard for the sarrtity of an oath.
He would not touch upon the wisdom. the
policy, even the justice of the act. Tin se
liiest:ons were for the political the legis
lative and executive departments of the
government if the act were within their
constitution!! powers, and it would be out
of place for the court to intertere.
No I'niiisliiiieiit I'ri.videil.
What congriss hit ! done had not been to
provide for any definition of crime in the
act, nor to provide any punishment. It
provided that the persons in question
fchould le sent out of the couutry to the
place from whence tiiey came: it provided,
not for the adjudication of crime, but
simply for the removal of imtsods whose
presence congress considers inconsistent
with the public welfare. It must le re
membered that Chinese cannot le naturai
lized. Doubtless they are entitled to the
security and safeguard guaranteed by the
constitution and laws in such measure as
they provide, but there was nothing in
the constitution or law which impugned
the power of congress to compel them to
leae the country.
Jnstiee Field Finis No Good in It.
Justice Field, who delivered the opinion
of the supreme court in the first case un
der the exclusion act, read his dissent
ing opinion. He characterized the act in the
strongest language as inhuman and brutal,
and as violative of the constitution in every
section. He regretted to say that the de
cision of the court was, to his mind, fraught
with tiie gravest dangers to the priceless
constitutional liberties of the people.
A Very Kssential Difference.
Justice Field said there was a very es
sential difference between excluding aliens
and deporting them. The one was un
doubtedly constitutional, but the other had
never been asserted by the government ex
cept for crimeorasan actof war. Hequoted
Jefferson and Madison in support of this,
besides other authorities. Aiiens residing
within the country were entitled to all the
protection of law accorded native citizens.
WHAT WILL THE GOVERNMENT DO?
A Lack or Appropriation Will Hamper
What the government will do now de
pends on the action of the cabinet, which
will probably be taken today. Attorney
General Olney said that until the line of
action to be pursued by our government
was mapped out he could say nothing on
the subject except that the department of
justice had no money available for deport
ing Chinese. Conservative estimates place
the amount necessary to deport the ' unre
gistered Chinese at tti.000,000. The
suggestion is made in official circles here
that Chinese unregistered may now go to
the courts and asked to be allowed to re
gister and remain in this country. lint
the government has not $20,000 to deport
with; in fact, but $16,800 remains of the ap
propriation made by last congress to carry
out the law. f
When an effort was made to secure the
insertion of an item of 500,000 in the ap
propriation bills for the purpose of ena
bling the executive authorities to carry
out the provisions of the law Hoi man an
tagonized and defeated it. The conse
quence was that congress appropriated
only $50,000, the sum heretofore provided
with which to deport the Chinese who
might unlawfully secure entrance into the
United States and be found out.
At the Chinese legation the Chinese min
ister courteously declined to express any
opinion upon the decision of the court or
to give any information as to the course
his government might deem proper to
Wodpr unaer tne circumstances. He es
pecially declined to say anything upon th e
alleged retaliatory policy of ordering the
expulsion of Americans from China.
Government officers express surprise at
the decision, but refrain from venturing
opinions as to the future action in carry
ing out the law. Until a more definite
plan of procedure shall have been decided
upon the instructions issued by Secretary
Carlisle and Attorney General Olney to
treasury officers and United States mar
shals respectively hold good.
WENT DOWN FOR BLOOD.
And Seem to Have Obtained What They
Brazil, Ind.. May 16. News of a bloody
flgV.t at the little mining town of Benwood,
this oounty. has reached here, Benwood
and Cardonia are rival mining towns, and
have frequently had bloody wars over argu
ments of supremacy. A dance was given
In Shearer's hall, and a crowd of about
twenty-five Cardonia men went down with
the avowed intention of breaking it up. A
fight ensued, in which about sixty persons
participated. The women were driven
from the hall, and for an hour the air was
filled with chairs, revolvers, balls, and
A halt was called until the injured on
both sides could be carried out, when the
fight was renewed with increased vigor.
The police attempted to stop the fight and
were roughly handled. Xo less than thir
ty persons were cut and bruised, a num
ber of them seriously. Cardonia announces
another dance when the light will be re
newed. Xo arrests have been made.
BROUGHT THE REMAINS IN BAGS.
Only Fragments Left of the Ten Men in
Hod Jacket Shaft.
Calumet, Mich., May 10. The relief
party of eighty men who went down
through an inclined shaft over a mile away
and connected with the Bed Jacket shaft
by a long drill or tunnel have returned to
the surface. They took bags with them
and gathered up the fragments of the bod
ies of the unfortunate men. The bags were
taken to the company's hospital. The most
heartrending scenes occurred w hen the
relief party returned to the surface.
The cause of the accident was defective
machinery, the direct fault being with the
finger on the indicator which shows the
engineer the position of the bucket in the
shaft. This had slipped and the engineer
thought he had several hundred feet tn
hoist. The chief engineer says no one can
be blamed, and that the indicator had been
working right nil the morning.

IHabio Wins the Itronklyn.
GllAVESEXI), X.V., May 16. Thirty thou
sand people saw Diablo win the Brooklyn
handicap, but not one of them cheered. He
was a rank outsider anil probably the
throng had lost too much money to do jus
tice to the gallant old horse. His owner,
however, can get along without applause,
as he won about $"JO,000 in stakes. Two of
the horses that met Diablo had easily
beaten him before, and bis feat simply
paralyzed the crowd. He was fourth for
a good part of the distance, but moved up
to second in the stretch and won by a
length: Lamplighter second, Leouawe II

INDIANA MOB AW,
Judge Lynch Hangs a Murderer
A QUIET AND BECHEECHE AFFAIU.
In MTtt!ch Mo Doubt Only the "Best Citi
zens" Were Involved And Indiana Baa
No Courts, You Know, and Was Getting
a Little Behind Details or the Proceed
ings at the "Removal" of Turtley.
Bedford, Ind., May 16- This city was in
state of intense excitement when it be
came known that during the night a mob
of 100 men from Seymour had come into
town on a special train which they had
captured, and had taken from the county
jail John Turtley, who murdered Conduc
tor Lou F. Price, and hanged him to a tree
in the jail yard. Turtleybnd refused to pay
his fare, and an old man sitting by him had
paid it for him. Theconductor walked
away, when Turley shot him twice. Price
died shortly after. There were threats of
lynching on every hand, but no precoutions
seem to have been taken.
About 0 o'c'.ock at night, a an engine to
which were attached two fiat cars was in
the act of leaving the yards at Seymour
for Westport, a large crowd of masked
men appeared and took forcible possession
of the train and started for Bedford, where
they arrived about 11 o'clock. The train
stood on the siding just outside the city
limits until about i o'clock, when it pulled
down to the Monon crossing and the band
of masked men disembarked acd proceeded
direct to the county jail.
The Same Old Mob Ruse.
Sheriff Holmes and Policeman John Reed
were in the jail and were aroused by a
knock at the door. In response the sheriff
asked what was wanted, when the reply
came: "I have a prisoner." Thinking it
was Policeman Russell who had made an
arrest Holmes opened the door, when four
revolvers were pushed into his face and he
was commanded to throw up his hands.
One of the mob then said they wanted the
man who killed Conductor I'rice and the
sheriff replied that they could not get him,
and on request pointed out the cell.
Soon tiot Their Victim.
The victim was soon out of his cell and
in the hands of the mob. The prisoner
was taken to the jail yard, but no citizen
of this city saw him hanged. At 2:25 the
guards placed over the sheriff's family and
policemen left, telling them to remain in
side the house one hour. They went out
before that time, though, and found the
body of Turtley hanging to an npple tree
with the feet about four feet from the
ot a Word from Turtley.
Turtley did not utter a word from the
time the mob appeared, so far as known.
He did not undress at night, but simply
took off his coat and shoes and lay down
When the mob came he quickly put them
on. The body was let down at 7 o'clock
in the morning. The noose was formed of
cotton clothes line, and hemp cord was
used for tying his hands and feet.
The whistles of the early Monon trains
blew exultantly when they passed the body
of Turtley swinging in the jail yard, and
all the yard engines did likewise when the
crews went to work.
