JOHN M. COGIILAN.
MR. LCTTREII’S REPUBLIC.
When the South Carolina convection
passed the ordinance of secession in 1860,
the newspapers of that State the day fol
lowing, printed all the telegraphic dis
patches received from North Carolina, Geor
gia, New York and other States under the
head of ‘‘Foreign News.” Mr. Yancey,
having succeeded in “firing the Southern
heart,” until Alabama seceded, immediate,
ly wrote letters announcing the particulars
to some kindred spirits, dated from the
“Republic of Alabama.” And finally, as
if to complete the farce, the 14,000 voters
of Florida also set up a little Republic of
their own, and dated /heir letters and pa
pers therefrom. We believe, however, that
these several little institutions were finally
“crushed” by that dsspotism known as the
Government of the United States, and that
one General Grant took a very prominent
part in the “crushing” process.
Rut Freedom, like Truth never dies, and
a few years after the people of the republics
we have named had been “subjugated,” it
raised its standard in the First Supervisor
District of Trinity county. The gallant
Democracy of that District met in 1870, at
Minersville, to nominate a candidate for
Supervisor. Their convention was com
posed of sis delegates and four proxies,
representing an aggregate of 104 votes, as
was evidenced by the election held the
September following. Mr. Luttrell, the
Sacramento Union's “moderate Democrat”
was in the county at the time, it being one
of his annual pilgrimages there-to, to re
deem that benighted section from the
thralldom of Republicanism. He carried
with him a few copies of the Sacramento
Union, to prove to the people that the Re
publican party were in favor of Chinese
immigration and suffrage ; also, many copies
of the Sacramento Reporter, the “left hand
railway circular” (vide Sacramento Union
of that time,) of which “left hand circu
lar” Mr. Luttrell was the traveling agent.
Mr. Luttrell attended the Minersville Con
vention of six delegates, and saw there
in a chance to acquire cheap glory and po
litical capital, by pandering to the prejudice
which existed at that time against the
Chinese population.
So he drew up a string of buncombe res
olutions, equal in number to the number of
delegates, which were submitted to and
adopted by the “Convention.” The sixth
of the series, pledged the 104 Democrats
of the District when Sheriff Jackson should
“filially bo stopped” from the collection of
Foreign Miners’ License, to rid the coun
ty of Chinese miners, peaceably if they
could, but forciably if they must.” Hav
ing done which, Mr. Luttrell procured a
few more subscribers to the “left Laid cir
cular” and departed a happier man.
Rut, by some strange fatuity, the Gov
ernment either never heard of Mr, Lut
trell’s resolutions, or else did not care a con
tinental for them. Probably, having had
some experience in dealing with republics,
it felt itself able to cope with the Republic
o*’Minersville which Mr. Luttrell had or
ganized. At any rate, Sheriff Jackson was
“finally stopped,” and yet the tread of the
Minersville patriots in their onslaught on
the “Heathen Chinee” was not heard re
sounding through the land.
The clang of John Chinaman’s rocker
was heard in its stead, and its Celestial
owners sat down to their daily bowl of rice
in sublime unconsciousness ot the fact that
General Luttrell was liable to organise Lis
104 Democrats and “move upon their
works” at a moments notice. The clang
of that rocker is still heard and the Miners
ville Republic is “one of the things that
were.” Instead of marshaling the Demo
cratic hosts of Minersville for an onslaught
on the Chinese miners of Trinity, General
Luttrell, and General Tinnin marshaled the
Democratic forces in the Legislature, and
made a terrific charge on the State Treas
ury. Here they were outflanked by Gov
ernor Rooth, and have no doubt retired to
renew the charge, when that political mil
lennium comes in which Democracy will
have both Governor and Legislature.
Rut everything is created for some pur
pose, and even this one-horse Supervisor
Convention, with it* six delegates, has its
uses. From its proceedings can be gather
ed the animus which will characterize men
of Luttrell’s stamp if once placed in a situa
tion where they can doui'schief. A sworn
attorney, and as such supposed to uphold
the laws, he commits a body of men to the
support of mob law as a redress of griev
ances. He induces them to pledge them
selves and those they represent, to the com
mission of lawless and insurrectionary acts,
nullifying one of the laws of the Federal Gov
ernment. Rutitwasa stepping stone to pop
ulirity, to pander to the prejudice which
some entertain against Chinese miners, but
we fancy it will be only notoriety that will
be gained. People in Trinity county under
stand the Chinese question in all its bear
ings, they know that the Foreign Miners’
License Tax was only a means by which
dishonest public officials stole themselves
rich, at the expense alike of the county aui
th 3 Chinese. They knew that the office of
Collector ol taxes had for years controlled
the elections for all other county officers,
and business men, on whom the burden of
the county expenses would fall,lwere glad
to contemplate the possibility of the removal
of such an clement of corruption as the
Foreign Miners’ License tax had got to be.
The demagoguery of these resolutions could
havo no effect on such men, but on'y on
the unthinking and ignorant. Even re
spectable Democrats wore disgusted at the
resolutions, the Chairman of that county
committee would have suppressed the whole
string, but, unfortunately for his good in
tentions they got into the columns of the
“railway circular” of which Luttrcll was
agent, and by that means only the Trinity
f jlks learned of the new Government which
had been installed.
Wo say that any man who would en.
dcavor to incite unthinking men to mob
law and resistance of lawful authority, is
unfit to represent a constituency in the
Federal Congress, TLi* Mr. Luttrell has
done, and if his plan has not been followed,
it was because the advised have better sense
than the adviser Straws show which way
the wind blows, and the Minersville “straw’
shows that J. K. Luttrcll was as hostile to
the Government of the United States in
1870 as during ihe war. What Republi
can caa stultify himself by voting for a
Democrat of that stripe ?
