John F. Swift publishes an open letter
challenging Judge Wallace to maintain
his statements that Chinese immigration
can be restricted by treaty, when the pres
ent Restriction Act expires, and that it is
unwise to invoke new and further Congres
sional action in the form of restrictive
legislation. Mr. Swift makes it perfectly
clear that no possible treaty stipulations
can prevent the exodus from China of the
class we desire to exclude from the United
States. The questions to Judge Wallace,
who has been Attorney-General of this
State and Chief Justice of the Supreme
Court, not to say chief exemplar of the
Stockton Convention Democracy, and the
new apostle of communism as exempli
fied by his recent legislative course — are of
the most incisive character. Mr. Swift
-shows the utter futility of treaty conven
tions as remedies fur the Chinese evil. No
man has studied the question more deeply
than Mr. Swift, both aa an official repre
sentative of the I'niti-il States and as a
citizen of California. He is peculiarly
qualified to speak upon the matter. That
Congressional legislation is absolutely es
sential as a remedy, Mr. Swift demon
strates by physical and legal proofs. He
assume*, for the sake of the argument
that Judge Wallace has succeeded in the
all but impossible task of negotiating a
treaty and having it ratified, by which '
China agrees that immigration to the
United States shall be restricted as we de- -
sire, and then he proceeds to ask '" What I
of it?"' "What then?" "Will they '
stop/ 11,- proceeds to point out
that the treaty will be inoperative ;
without that very "coercive force" ,
that Judge Wallace deprecates for fear :
that it "will reawaken th. New England
sentiment " against us. Will china pre- ]
vent her people from violating the treaty ?
Will the treaty enforce it-elf In* operating .
upon the Chinese conscience? Is the
Chinaman thus ohedient to treaty or other *
law? Is he so high -spirited that he will ,
stay away bt-canse his Government lias
agreed that he should do so? How will '
the Chinese Government compel _im to (
remain at home".' How prevent him
j-,oi_g to Hongkong— a British dependency j
— the Sandwich Islands and other permtsai- t
ble places, and thence to the United States? *
If China should agree to such a treaty '
could she keep her people at home even if -
she attempted to <!<> it ? Is the whole mat
ter to be left to China? Are there to lie I '
no lines or penalties for violation of the "
treaty? Or, is China to confer jurist! ic- ]
tion upon our Courts to check i 'him itn- ':i
migration? Will not New England sent!- *
ment be as much opposed to a treaty as I
to a Restriction Act. when the aim of both j
is a ; common one ? Will New England
Senators continue "snoozing" while the ' c
ireaty is being negotiated, ratified and ' c
__ „-.,.
confirmed? How about other powers?
What is to be done with British ship
masters that take Chinese out? How is
an American treaty to bind them ? How j
are they to be punished for violating a
treaty to which their Government is not a
party? These arc a few of the half hun
dred barbed questions Mr. Swift puts to '
the blundering apostle of the Stockton
Democracy. The truth is Judge W. T.
Wallace has made an ass of himself since
he went Fast, and there are not wanting
prominent Democrats to acknowledge and
deplore it with much gnashing of teeth.
The party in California must rise up and
spew Wallace out of its mouth, or take to
the woods before the dawn of another
election day.
_> ♦-
Justice Stephen J. Field, of the Supreme
Court of the United States, under date of
June sth, wrote a letter to Mr. Addington,
of the Colusa Sun, in which he proves con
clusively that the San Francisco Examiner's
correspondent in Washington is given to
telegraphing bold-faced lies to that sheet-
The reporter, in May, telegraphed that
Judge Field had been "forcing the light"
against General Rosecrans, and named the
witnesses who had heard Field assail Rose
crans. The dispatch added that Field had
opposed Zaeh. Montgomery's appointment,
because he (Montgomery) was a Catholic,
and that Field had so stated to the Attor
ney-General. Judge Field now flatly de
nies the charges, saying:
It is difficult to comprehend the viieness o'
the nature which could scud forth such pure
fabrications. 1 have never spoken to the Presi
dent; or to any head of a department, respect
ing General Rosecrans. I have never mentioned
his name in the presence of cither of them,
whether in praise or dispraise. Nor did I ever
state to the Attorney-General, or to anyone else,
that Mr. Montgomery was a Catholic. Indeed,
I did not know that fie was a Catholic, and bis
religion wns never the subject of conversation
between the Attorney-General and myself; nor
was It even alluded to. The same mendacity
and malignity attend all dispatches of the Ex
aminer's correspondent from Washington, re
specting myself. So far as they relate to me,
they have, in all cases, been pure fabrications.
It is difficult to conceive of any method
one man could adopt to give another the
lie .more flatly than the Judge has done in
this instance. lie incloses to Mr. Adding
ton a letter from Attorney-General Gar
land, substantiating Field's denial, and
saying that Field never -poke to him of
Montgomery as being "a Catholic," or
that he ever made any reference to the
man's religious belief, and finally, that
Field never did oppose Montgomery's a)***
pointment to him (Garland.) In the face
of this testimony the Examiner should
order its Washington falsifier to step down
and out. It cannot bolster him up after
the expose without classing itself in the
category of liars. The Democratic fac
tions are doing some admirable work for
the Republicans just now. If the com
munistic wing led by Wallace, and the
Examiner clique, will keep on a little lon
ger in a course affording ample opportu
nity to the other Democratic wing to
prove its household opponents unscrupu
lous, the success of the Republican party
a little over a year hence will be involved
in no sort of doubt.
Tin-: promise for a creditable celebration
of the national anniversary in this city is
very good. There has been a difference of
opinion as to the proper methods of rais
ing the funds necessary to defray the ex
penses of the celebration, but none what
ever as to a worthy observance of the day.
The committee in charge has wisely re
solved to spend no money for fireworks.
The programme for the day is one full of
attractions. In two respects it differs ma
terially from any heretofore arranged, in
that it provides not only for a day celebra
tion, but yields tin evening to those who
enjoy burlesque processions, while the
afternoon is reserved for the varied enter
tainment to be given in Agricultural Park
by a section of the artillery regiment. The
forenoon is thus to he devoted to the usual
procession and the commemorative literary
exercises addressed directly to the thought
ful patriotic sentiment. In a celebration
thus filling the whole day and evening it
will lie seen how necessary it is that
promptness be made the rule for all act
ively engaging in the observances. The
occasion i- one that presents strong attrac
tions for people outside the city to come to
us and join with lis in renewing patriotic
fealty to the noblest of republics.

j Indian Outbreak Threatened at Fort Ucno.
Washington, June 22d.— The "War -Dc- ]
partment has received reports from Fort
Reno, I. T., dated the 18th instant, to the
effect that great excitement prevails at that
place over. a threatened outbreak by the
Cheyenne Indians. It is known the South
ern Cheyennes are making preparations to
go on the war-path, and troops have been
dispatched to overawe the turbulent In
dians. War Department officials are not
informed as to the cause ol the threatened
outbreak. If these Indians go on the war
path there will be great difficulty in quiet
ing them. The Cheyennes are reported to
be as troublesome to deal with as are the
Apaches. The country, however, in which
the former live would be more advanta
geous to soldiers pursuing them than is the
rough rocky country in which the latter
are being followed.
Washington, June 22d. — News was re-
rived at the War Department laic Ibis
afternoon, to the effect that the difficulty
with the Cheyenne Indians is becoming
very serious. General Auger has ordered
four companies of the Fifth Cavalry to go
to the scene of disturbance, in addition to
the companies previously sent to Fort
Reno'. This makes ten companies at Fort
Reno, and three additional companies are
held in readiness to go at a moment's no
tice. Auger recommends the appointment
of a Commission to ascertain the cause of
the discontent.
The Southern Cheyennes are located in
the western portion of the Territory. The
country is level and devoid of trees", except
along the streams. Owing to its great ex
tent, it is very easy for the Indians to
keep out of the way of the troops.
It is believed here * that the Indi
ans are well supplied with arms and
ammunition. The last trouble with the
Cheyennes occured about nine years ago,
ami continued for more than a year. It
was caused by the Indians of that tribe
massaereing (-.'portion of a family moving
overland from Georgia. The massacre oc
curred in Kansas. The father, mother and
daughter were killed, and the four remain
ing children taken captive. The daughter
who was killed, before she was captured
took the life of an Indian with an ax as
he attempted to get into the wagon in which
the children were gathered. Prior to this
massacre the Cheyennes became unfriendly
towards the whites. A number of men,
disguised as Indians, had burned a bridge
on the Kansas Pacific Railroad, for the pur
pose of stopping a train, that they might
plunder it. After the destruction of the
bridge soldiers were sent to Capture the men
implicated. An officer chanced one day to
see an Indian standing alone at a distance.
He drew nearer, fired and killed him. The
Indian was a son of Lone Wolf, the great
Cheyenne chief. When he was buried, 400
ponies were killed above his grave. Though
Lone Wolf himself did not participate in
the outbreak which followed his son's
death, it was thought that the shooting of
the young Indian greatly influenced the
tribe to go on the warpath. The massacre
of the Georgia family followed, and one
year's fighting was the result.
Indian Affairs in Southern Oregon.
Washington, June 22d. — Gen. Pope has
transmitted to the War Department an ac
count of the killing of a Piute Indian
named Joe, by two white mop, in Happy
Valley! Oregon. In commenting upon the
killing. Gen. Pope again invites attention
to the white and Indian outrages which are
increasing in frequency in the southern
part of Oregon. He says the Pi ates, hav
ing no reservation, are willing to go to and
frequent that country for sustenance In
hunting and fishing. The s'atc of affairs
now existing is certain to grow worse, and
must finally culminate in open hostilities.
unless a reservation is assigned these In
dians, and they are placed on it. The
Commissioner of Indian Affairs has di
rected an Agent to investigate the circum
stances, and report measures looking to the
protection of the Indians.)
Condition of General Grant. .
Mount McGregor 'NY V. ,June 22d.—
General Grant was awake at 7 o'clock this
morning, when Dr. Douglas dressed his
throat. His pulse was then, 72 and his
voice quite clear, although the doctor had
DO thought that it would remain so. About
11 o'clock the General arose and seemed to
be refreshed by his rest, and brightened by
the clear, cold air.
Mot****. -McGregor, June 22d. — Sitting in
a sheltered spot on the piazza, where the
breeze could not reach him, Grant quietly
passed the morning until near noon, writing
part of the time. At lunch time the Gen
eral entered the cottage, and did not again
appear until between '■'> and -1 o'clock, when
he strolled about the piazza for a short
time. lie soon went in doors, however,
for the temperature was about 60°, and a
still' breeze that had followed the early
morning rain rendered light overcoats ac
ceptable to well person?. Tbe storm this
morning threw down the one wire from the
mountain, and thus cut off' communica
tion with the outer world.
lir. Newman on General Grant.
Philadelphia, June — The Press
says: Dr. Newman preached here at the
dedication of the Newbury Methodist
Church yesterday. He. said : '"' Heft Mount
McGregor Saturday. General Grant
knows he is afflicted with a presumably
incurable complaint and is at times de
spondent. I believe he will recover. lam
not a believer in faith-cure, but 1 believe
that where a whole nation is daily sending
up prayers with a worthy object, the Al
mighty will answer those supplications.
Divine interposition is not my only hope.
I thin!-: the sick man's strength will be re
cruited in his cool mountain home. Cancer,
if his suffering is from that malady, kills
through exhaustion. I believe the patient's
physical power will be so far recruited as
to enable him to keep the disease in abey
ance and for a time possibly to vanquish
it. The General's mental depression is in
a great measure caused by physical pros
tration. Bis physicians declare to him till
the facts in his case. Here is the General's
handwriting (showing a strip of paper) on
which were penned the following: 'It
is just a week since I have spoken. My
suffering is continuous. The doctors, how
ever 'Sands and Douglas), say my ailment
is improving. [don't feel so.' The Gen
eral writes more liberal now than lie did
lormerly while in health. He takes more
time and care. .He writes a good many
little notes. They are always brief and to
the point."
Morrison Proposes to Introduce Another
Turin Hill.
Washington, June 22d.— In an interview
to-day with an Associated Press reporter,
Representative Morrison, of Illinois, said
that he purposed to introduce another tariff

reduction. The truth is they do not want

Protection of Washington Monument
from Light mirg. V -/iv-
Philadelphia! June 22d. — The copper
rods ordered by Colonel Casey in this city,
to guard the : Washington Monument
against further strokes of lightning, are;
now ready for duty. The rods, which are
four in number, arc three-quarters of an
inch in thickness, and are to extend to the
outside of the roof of the monument, one
for each face of the roof, and are to be in j
diii •* connection with the four; copper'
rods which extend from the iron pillars

each terminate in seven branching j.

lermined by experience that the ; interior [
lightning-rod apparatus is capable ' of t con- I
ducting all the electricity that could possi
bly come from any storm, and," with the'
additional outside facilities, it is thought ,
that : all' danger \ from lightning will lie j
averted. There will be, with , the alumni- i
t:m tips, twenty-nine lightning rods on the !
roof of the monument for the lightning to
strike, and be " conducted . thence ; without
damage into the ground. Ylt is almost im

Missouri's . Vest " Palled Down", by the
President and Postotlice Department.
.Washington, June 22d.— Senator Vest is
the latest addition to the army of Demo
cratic politicians who are disgusted with
the Administration. Last Saturday the
Senator went to the Postoflice Department
to make inquiries about applications on
file tor vacant Postoflices in his State. He
was told by the messenger at the door of
the Postmaster-General's . room that he
could not be admitted, because Mr. Vilas
could not sec any callers on Saturday. He
then asked to see First-Assistant Post
master-General Hay, and was told that
that gentleman, not feeling well, had gone
home. His patience being almost ex
hausted, he next asked to see the Chief
Clerk of the Department. He was es
corted to that gentleman's office, and
asked of him permission to see the ap
plications on file for Missouri Postoflices.
The Chief Clerk told the. Senator that he
had positive orders from the Postmaster-
General not to let any person see the ap
plications or indorsements of any ap
plicant for a position under that Depart
ment. The little Senator was in a tower
ing passion, and taking a cab drove to
the White House, where 'he related
to the President his experience in the Post
oilice Department. In plain language he
told Mr. Cleveland what he thought of an
Administration that would not permit the
representative of a State to inform himself
as to the number and character of appli
cants for appointment to the offices in that
State. The President told Senator Vest
that he did not know what regulation the
Postmaster-General had seen lit to adopt
for the transaction of business in his De
partment, and that he was unable to inter
pose in its management: The conversation
then turned upon general topics, and the
President asked Mr. Vest what the people
of Missouri thought of the policy of the
Administration since its inauguration. The
Senator said that the Missouri Democrats
were not at all satisfied with the manner
in" which the President was doing busi
ness; that a great many Republican office
holders in the State had not been disturbed,
although the people expected that in the
change of Administration these offices
would be taken from their political ene
mies and given to the friends and adherents
of the Democratic party. The President
said he was sorry the people ot Missouri
were not pleased with his policy. He said
that he intended to go ahead in the same
manner he had begun to discharge the
duties of his office. He intended to strictly
adhere to the pledges given by him in his
letter of acceptance, and in his inaugural
address on the subject of civil service re
form. He said he should endeavor to
select the best men for public positions in
every instance, and that before making
any appointments he should consider the
claims of every candidate placed before
him and render his decision in conformity
with what he thought to be the best inter
ests of the public service, regardless of
purely political considerations.
EDbbs, the Defaulting Idaho Postmaster.
Washington. June 22d. — A dispatch was
received at the Postotlice Department
from British Columbia to-day, saying that
Hibbs, the absconding Postmaster of Lewis
ton, Idaho, who stole $20,000, is willing to
compromise by giving the Government
$8,000 of the stolen money for his freedom.
The Postmaster-General directed that the
offer be refused, as the Government would
rather have Hibbs than the money. The
extradition proceedings will begin in a few

Portland (Me.), June 22d— The day is
perfect and delegates of the Grand Army
people are beginning to arrive. The Law
and Order League has issued a circular
stating that all honors consigned to mem
bers of the Grand Army will be promptly
seized. The proposition made by the same
committee — that all consignments to mem
bers of the Grand Army should be seized
and taken to police headquarters' and if
after inspection by Commander-in-Chief
Kountze they would be found to contain
any liquors," they, would not be forwarded
to the consignee — met with instant opposi
tion, and the fact of : such proposition hav
ing been made has caused something of a
rebellious spirit to arise, and visitors open
ly declare their intention to defeat any
such arbitrary action, should it be at
tempted. It is not denied that there are
quantities of liquor now en route, con
signed to members of the Grand Army of
the Republic, who arc either here or are to
arrive, and prominent officers of the organ
ization declare that they will take and keep
possession of their consignments. The
constant agitation of this subject recently
by temperance leaders has caused it to
take a place of paramount interest on all
General Logan is expected to arrive to
night. He will be given a grand recep
tion, as also will Generals Slocum and
lei--, ratis. who are also expected to-night.
The Executive Committee is likely to be
put to a severe test by the demands made
upon it.
The lowa delegates this morning tele
graphed for 500 additional quarters, and
numerous other requests of a similar na
ture have been made.
Poi:ti.ani>, June 22d. — A great deal is
heard on till sides In regard to the liquor
question to-night. The Associated Press is
in receipt of the following telegram, which
seems to have been inspired by the circu
lars issued by the temperance ladies:'
Newport (Vt.), .lime 22d.
To the Associated Press: Two thousand com
rades of the Grand Army of the Republic have
read the dispatches regarding the appointment
of special police to care for the lives and prop
erty of Portland. We call your attention to the
fact that in times past we were the police of ihe
nation, and twenty years has not diminished
our respect for law and order. We came un
armed, and on a peaceful mission, as your
guests, and respectfully ask permission to enter
your city, unmolested by special police or spe
cial investigating committees.
(Sinned)— Departments of Ohio. Tennessee,
Georgia; Illinois, Wisconsin, Kansas, lowa, Col
orado, Minnesota, Oregon, Dakota, Missouri,
Nebraska and Michigan.
The peculiar wording of the circular sent
out by the advocates of Temperance seems
to have had the effect of creating no small
decree of resentment on the part of the
visitors from other States, and many of
tlicm claim that to issue such circulars to
a body of men so old in years, in service
and in distinguished honors as that of the
a. A. R., is scarcely less than an insult.
The Coming National Soldiers' Encamp
Piii_Ai>K_i , iilA,June22d.— Major Hughes,

campment, which begins next Sunday at

Street Railways and Stages. YY
: New York, June 22d.— A marked still
ness, compared with the continues roar and
rumble of Broadway, has followed the in

cars run at one minute and a half intervals,
one hundred in number, from Fourteenth

vey their passengers from the ferries. The
stages will run in the same way; from

run above Fourteenth street. The Madison
avenue street railroad will run from the
City Hall to Harlem riverm a week or two,
crossing the new bridge over the Harlem

knocking in several of her plates.
The Peking correspondent of the Chinese
Mail says: *' There have been strange do
ings in the Liv Yell Fu, or Palace of the
Sixth Prince— Prince Kung. Deviltry is at
work. The Prince has a room which he
uses as a treasury, and this is full of sycee.
Lately the 'shoes' of sycee have down
into the air of their own accord; taken to
themselves wings, as riches are said to do ;
and when the attendants rushed to shut the
door, all the ' shoes' in the place flew out,
being too quick for mortal man to impede
their Sight. Supernatural flames, too, have
been bursting out of the Prince's ward
robes, or chests, and destroying some of his
richest garments. No origin can be traced;
the lire just breaks out of itse'f. Your
leaders may not credit this, but it is a fact
that both Prince Kung and his son have
had to leave the Palace and take up their
quarters somewhere else."

Death of Prof. Norton.
E ED6.'_UcOB->IUKIO-i." The" telegraph, an
nounces the death, his home in Skyland
Oi Professor H. B. Norton, of the State Nor
mal School at San Jose. Probably no man
in the State could have so gone ; out of it
more widely mourned.' or mourned with a
more sincere and unaffected sorrow. From
Siskiyou . to : San J Diego, bright eyes will ■
dim and light hearts grow heavy. "He was
a man '. whom ; men trusted arid women '
loved.' His face, his voice, his character,
were all invitations to confidence a confi
dence he was incapable of abusing.- Thou
sands of young men and young women in
the State will miss him as a lost benedic
tion, and the writer, though an older man
than lit-, will bear them company. His
place was taken in the hearts of- Li's asso
ciates almost from his first coining among
them eight years ago, and it grew larger
with each succeeding year. He was a pop
ular lecturer on a variety of subjects, but
especially on scientific topics. The calls
upon him were much more frequent than
he could respond to, nor did they come
from teachers' institutes alone. Lyceum
bureaus and local associations of various
kinds called almost daily at his door.
.Professor Norton was a Normal School
man from boyhood. He Was graduated
from the State Normal School in Illinois,
and was almost immediately elected Prin
cipal of the State Normal School of Kan
sas, from which he resigned about the year
1872, but resumed work there again soon
after, and from that position was called to
the Chair of Natural History in the Nor
mal School at San Jose. For the last two
years he has been Vice Principal of that in
stitution, a position in which- lie has ren
dered signal service to the school. lie was
a man who hated meanness and injustice
as only supremely gentle natures can, and
in the history of his administration the
public has once or twice had occasion to
know what rapier thrusts could lie hidden
away behind the habitual accents of help
fulness and sympathy. At the time of his
death he was President of the State Teach
ers' Association, whose organization will
greatly miss his magnetic presence and
energy. I{.
