77.V PLATE MAKING RESTRICTED.
(Joi.oir.i.v river can tiers and
others who have spent any time
regretting the fact that the United
States is not extensively engaged
in making tin plates will be inter
ested to know that British tin
plate makers are contributing a
fund to present to a Mr. James
Spence as a recognition of his suc
cessful efforts to bring about a
combination of makers to reduce
the production of tin plates by 25
per cent. The London Iron Ex
change says of it that the "true
benefactor of his country was once
described as the man who caused
two blades of grass to grow where
one grew formerly, but the tin.
plate makers do not apply this
principle to their industry. They
consider that the true benefactor
of the tin plate trade is the man
who causes a mill which formerly
turned out 2,000 boxes of plates
monthly to produce only 3,500."
Alter referring to the fact that the
tin plate workers, as a conse
quence, have lost one-fourth of
their wages of late, it is suggested
lo the tin plate manufacturers that
they may produce to the full if tin
plates be "sold for cash against or
der delivery" and manufacturers
"pay cash for their bars and fuel."
The paper named adds that "the
depression in the tin plate trade is
not. owing to free trade, for
the markets ol the world
are absolutely and entirely
in the hands of South "Wales. No
one knows better than Mr. Spence
that it is "the underselling of
needy maker.-, who pay their cred
itors by four months1 bills anil who
receive cash on delivery for their
plates, that lias ruined the tin plate
Acvoi:iin: to the Doise City
Statesman the first massacre of
Chinese in the United States took
place in Idaho in 18GS, when sev
enty of them were killed by Indi
ans. They had left the mines of
Nevada, and were proceeding in
bands to the placers of Idaho, in
search of work and gold. It was
the first time Chinamen had ever
been seen by the Shoshone In
dians, and they were the last they
wanted to see. A freighter who
was well known to the Indians ot
that section, camped near the
creek where the massacre took
place on the day following, and
the Shoshone chief explained to
him how it all happened. "Mcbe
so, mcbe not. lie no white man,
he no nigger, he no Injun. lie
go quack! quack! like um duck.
He no good; Injun kill um all."
The Shoshone then went through
all the motions of pulling the
queues and lifting the heathens'
scalps, with many grimaces, and
to the great delight of the freighter.
The summary method of Idaho
leds in settling the Chinee ques
tion was adopted lv the early
miners of ('-omji- d'Ait-ne. This
has reference, pmUr.bly. lo the
killing of ('hints.- in Owyhee
county, an ac.-omr " nhieii was
published :tl. tlif turn-.
Thirteen piMson.- ha v. been
arrested at Seattle, indictments
having been found against them
by the grand jury for alleged vio
lation of Article 1 of the Chinese
treaty which says: "If Chinese la
borers, or Chinese of any other
class, now either permanently or
temporarily residing in the terri
tory of the United States, meet
with ill treatment at the hands of
any other persons, the government
of the United States will exert all
its power to devise measures for
their protection, and to secure to
them the same rights, privileges,
immunities and exemptions as may
be enjoyed by the citizens or sub
jects of the most favored nation,
and to which they are entitled by
Tiik San Francisco Call of the
11th, in an editorial referring to
a matter under discussion by some
Nevada papers, to annex southern
portions of Grant and Baker coun
ties, Oregon, and Owyhee county,
Idaho, to Nevada, in order to
lighten her burden of taxation,
says: "It is stated that large
property holders in the Oregon
counties favor annexation to Ne
vada. Public opinion in Owyhee
county, Idaho, is also said to be
favorable to the scheme. The fact
that many of the property holders
of these counties are residents of
Nevada may account for this sentiment."
Tin: Harrington Times says:
"When you hear a man sneering
at the local papers because they
are not as big, cheap and newsy as
other papers, you can safely bet
that he does not squander his
wealth to assist in making them
better, and that generally the pa
pers have done more for him than
he has for them. The man who
caunBt see the benefits arising to
a town from a newspaper has -not
the sense of an oyster, and he is
about as much yalue to a town as
a delinquent tax list."
"Mi:s. Mary; Kknworthy" is
among those indicted by the Seat
tle grand jury for conspiracy, etc.
It is one of woman's rights in
Washington territory to take part
in public business, and of course
no true advocate of the cause can
complain if the full responsibility
of those rights is assumed. Mrs.
K. is said to hare become "hys
terical"' when the indictment was
read. Let us hope this is a base
slander on the sex.
Since the state census returns
are ail in, says the Orryonlat), the
present is an excellent time to
make a new apportionment of
members of the legislature. The
present distribution of mem
bers is based on a system long
since outgrown. Consequently it
does injustice to many parts of
the state. Reapportionment has
already been delayed much too
long. AVe hope to see a just bill
in this behalf become a law.
There is already enough work
before the legislature to keep it
going for the remainder of the
session. The recommendation of
the governor was a good one
that it would be better to fix up
and straighten out faulty legisla
tive action of the past, before in in
teoducing: new bills.
Advices from Calcutta state
that King Thebaw has ordered all
Englishmen in Burmah to be ex
terminated. It is feared that all
Europeans at Mandalay have al
ready been massacred. The Bur
mese are blockading the Irawaddy
river at Minhla.
It is said that very few of the
replies received to Secretary Man
ning's tariff circular are favorable
to free trade. A considerable
number favor a change from ad
valorem to specific duties.
The silver men claim to have
made a careful canvass by letter
of the members of the next house,
Democrats and Republicans, and
affirm that it shows that they will
have a working majority.
