When Cleveland comes inarching home
again he will enter the White House ovei
the prostrate bodies of half the Democratic
Party# ?==r==?On
the new postal card the head of Jef
forsou takes the place of the Goddess ol
Liberty. This is the 11 ret substantial earnest
of reform.
I.v Virginia they are already jubilating
in this strain:
Where loujj racd* quiver,

If this is true it is, as one might say, "all
that could bo djsired." It is to bo hoped
that Fitz will stay there.
It is thus recorded in the Cincinnati
fimjuirer't Washington dispatches: "The
correspondence at the several departments
indicates an unprecedented rush and
pressure of olBce-seokers npon the return
of the Secretaries." The hunger has not
. been satistied and the thirst goes unquenched.
They can't bo beaten olf with
the Civil Service reform club.
Tub little misunderstanding between
Ju'lgo Jackson and Attorney General
Caldwell brought from the counsel for the
Htdtaau assertion of his right and from
the court a sharp reference to its dignity.
Perhaps the counsel ought to have taken
more kindly to the cracking of the court's
little Joke. and perhaps ho would liavo
done ho if tho joku had boon on tho other
-It is very clear, however, that tho Attorney
General was well within his right
when ho objected to that kind of by-play
from the bench. It is equally clear that
lie did not deserve tho rebuke which came
from tho bench. Jndges who are so quick
to take refugo behind the dignity of the
court ought to forego the luxury of cracking
jokes with the bar, for the bar itself
, lias a streak of human nature in it.
J Ion. Alfonso Tart, ex-Minister to Russia,
speaking of the tariff policy of that
country, says: "They protect all their
manufactures by heavy duties. The
manufacturing Industry of the country is
growing up under the poli jy and becoming
very large. There is very little American
capital in Russia now. The policy o/
Itussia is discouraging also to the English,
who formerly hail a lurgo colony of
wealthy traders'at St. Petersburg!!."
This from a "nation of barbarians"!
In our own country there is a disposition
to tear down what has boen built up by a
tariff high enough to protect Why need
kiiy1 American feag on a policy which pro
tecta Americans and leaves tho people of
other countries to scramble for them*
VVk fear thitt tho fyjjiattr inisapprohenxw
the position of" this newspaper in
the posiofliee matter.1 The Intkllioksckk
lias not sa?d orinUmatetL that tho Jirtjirftr
ought not to get tho poBtoflice. TEonoWB
aspect of the case has boon printed, fairly
a* wo think and hopo, accompanied by
kin Uy comment on tho JfajUter's candidacy.
The Reference tocfllce-holding by now*
papera was not designed to prejudice our
neighbor's case. It was made aa a precaution,
lest the public might conclude
that tho Intklliubnckk had changed its
oft-doclar.M opjnlon on this subject. The
opiniou applies to' the Intklliokncek
rather than to any other newapapur.
Twenty years ago the postoilico might
have baen very acceptable to the Intklliobmcku.
Now it would not bo acceptable,
because from any point of view it would
not pay. ?So with any other olllce that
might be puggested.. But this does not
abut out of oflico-taking any nowspapar
which tins other inclinations.
Wo hope not to he misunderstood in
this rnattor, for the contest ia not yet
endud andjthe Intklliqknckk will naturally
havo more to say about it both in n
news way and in the way of comment.

J)uuuquk, low a, .Sept. 4.?Arguments
were heard in tiie District Court, yceterday,
on the application of defendants for
the removal to the Federal Court of thu
petition for the temporary injunction!
agaiuat tho saloonkeepers. Captain
Adams, attorney for the Prohibitionists,
opposed the application for removal on
tho ground that it set out merely conclusions
of law, not facts which would oust
tho court from its injunction.
Colonel Lyon, one of thu attorneys for
the defendants, followed with an argument
in which he ;held that tho petition
<1 d set out suilicient grounds for removal,
llo questioned tho morality of tho people
of the State of Iowa in inviting foreigners
to tlioir .state to build breweries aud then
enacting laws to render tho property
worthlraa. ?
Tho Judge decided in favor of allowing
the removal of the injunction cases to the
Federal Court This decision has been
unxiously awaited by both sides, and ie
considered another victory by the personal
liberty party.

Washington, Sept. 4.?The reception o
( replies from manufacturers and businesi
men to the letter of Secretary Manning ir
relation to the tariil' have materially fallen
ofr. While there has not been so general t
' redponao to tho Secretary's request aa wai
anticipated, those received have placed
tho Department in possession of much
valuable information, which can not foil
to be of great service to the President and
Secretary of tho Treasury in the prepara<
tion of their unnual communications to
Thus far about two hundred replica
have been roceived, moBt of which came
from importers and business men other
than manufacturers. Tho information
thus obtained is being elsas'iticd and collated
by competent ollicers of the cnBtoma
service for the special use of the Secretary
in nrnnnrnfion nf liin fnr?hV?omini? r??
port to Oongres3.
Nothing of any consequence has beon
received from workers in and manufacture
erg of irun, but it is understood that those
interested iu these industries will cause to
bo prepared, through the Iron and Steel
Association and kindred organizations, a
comprehensive paper, which will notonly
represent the views of the principal
workers in this varied industry, but which
will contain statistical and other information
that will be serviceable to the legislative
as well as to tbo executivodepartmeut
of the Government.
It would, perhaps, bo adviaablo for
those who contemplate the preparation
of replies to the Treasury's request, to
keep in mind thefa-t that their statements
may bo obtained from the department
upon a call from the .Senate or House,
and they may bo printed by order of the
branch which obtained possession of
tut in. lias auinomuun is given 10 mu
en.I that manufacturers ami others may
make 110 revelation connected with the
conduct of their business that might
prove hurtful to them if published and
distributed broadcast in a Congressional
document, or statements of fact that can
not be fully substantiated. In such an
event, and particularly should Congrefcs
cuter upon tahfl" revision next winter,
these communications from the manufacturers
of the country would play an
important part in the debates.

Some Sickening Development*.
Rock Springs, Wyoming, Sept. 4.?Yesterday,
for tlio lirst time in many years,
there was not a Chinaman in llock Springs' j
streets, except the dead and wounded.
The live or six hundred who wero at
work in the mines here have been driven
out, and nothing hut heaps of smoking
ruins mark the spot where Chinatown
stood. The feeling against the Chinese
lias been growing stronger all summer.
The fact that the white men had been
turned ofT the sections, and hundreds of
wum minliino i?? train tnr ttfnrlr
while tho Chinese were being shipped in
by tho cur-load and given work, strengthened
tho feeling against them.
It needed'but little to excite this feeling
into an active crusade against the Chinese,
and precipitate the battle at No. 0
mine, about one mile north of town.
Through some misunderstanding. two
Chinamen took a loom in the mine belonging
to two white men. When the
white men catno they ordered them out.
They would not go, and a tight eneued,
which was participated in by nearly all
tho whites and Cniuamen in the mines.
The Chinamen were worrited in tho tight,
and four of them were badly wounded,
one of whom has since died. The white
miners then came out, armed themselves
with Urearms, and notified tho men in the
other mines to come out in tho afternoon,
Meantime all was excitement in Chinatowu.
The llig was hoisted as a warning,
and the Cbinoso working in the different
parts of the camp lied to their quarters.
After dinner the saloons closed, and no
liquor has been sold siuce then. The
miners gathered on tho front streets, about
one hundred of( them armed with guns,
revolvers, naicneis aim KinveB, anu proceedcd
to Chinatown Uufore reaching
there they sent a committee of three,
warning the Chinamen to leave in an hour.
This they agreed to da, aud started to
pack up, but in about half an buur the
white men glow impatient and advanced
upon the Chinese quarters, shouting and 1
tiling their guns into the air. Without
ottering resistance the Chiuese fled, with
whatever they could anatch up, to the
hills about a mile east of town, the miners
tiring at them as they went.
Soon a black cloud of smoke was seen
i/wuing from the peak of a house in lion#
Kong, then from another, an J very soon
tight or ten of the largest houses were in
iiutnes. Half choked with tire and smoke,
numbers of Chinamen came rushing from
the burning buildings. With blankets and
bod quilts over their beads to protect
themselves from stray rifleshots, they followed
their retreating brothers into the
hills at the top of their speed.
A laundry in town was next visited and
the inoffensive inmates shot dead. All
ihe employes of the coal department of
the railroad were ordered to leave town,
which they did on the morning train.
During the night all of the Chinese houses
in to#11, numbering nearly lifty, were
burned to the ground. A number ?f
Chinamen who were hiding tied from the
burning buildings.
The light of Thursday morning revealed
some terrible sights. In the smoking cellar
of two Chinese houses the blackened
bodies of six Chinamen wero seen, three
others were in the cellar of another, and
four more bodies were found near by.
From tho position of some it would seem
lie though they had begun to dig a hole
in the cellar to hido themselves, but the
liru UYCIWU? 1111.111, UI1I1IIIJ? IIICll I'AUKUf
ilies to a crisp anil leaving tho upper j>ortions
of their bodies untouched.
At the east end of Chinatown another
body was found charred by the liainoaand
mutilated by hogs. The eraull that arose
from the smoking ruins was horribly suggestive
of burning flesh. Further east
was the bodies ol four more Chinamen,
nliot down in their (light.
A Coroner's jury was summoned,which,
after examining the bodies, returned a
verdict that eleven of the Chinese had
been burned to death, and live shot by
parties unknown to the jury. A number
were found seriously wounded, and how
many more may still be wounded out in
the hills is unknown. Larue numbers of
Chinese have been picked up by the trains
going West, and a Quantity of provisions
have been sent out for them.
It is rumored that the Mormon miners
in camp are to bo ordered out, but no action
in this direction has yet been taken.
The miners here are entirely unorganized
in the crusade, and, although a large namInjr
of them are Knights cf l.abor, the
move was not made under their direction.
The mines have not been wot king since
Wednesday, an-1 business is almost entirely
suspended. Everything is now
quiet, however. _________
The Military Called Out.
Washington, 1). 0., Sept. 4.?Governor
Warren, of Wyoming Territory, to-day
telegraphed tho President and Secretary
of War at Washington, requesting the assistance
of Federal troops in suppressing
the disturbance at Rock Springs, Wyoming
Territory, cnusod by tho massacre of
Chinese laborers by miners. A copy of
the telegram was forwarded to Secretary
LCndicott at his home in Massachusetts.
Adjutant General Drum had a conference
with Secretary Bayard asto the heft course
topnisue in the matter,and decided in view
..f >l>u inf.irmalilv r.f tlio ?alt fnr Irnnnu
not to disturb the President with tho question,
but instead issue orders for United
States troops to proceed to tho eceno of
the disturbance for the purpose of protecting
the United States mails. Tho soldiers
are to keep open the route over which the
mails are carried and prevent any interference
with them. Adjutant General
I h um therefore telegraphed Ueneral Schotield
at Chicago to order two companies to
proceed at once to the sceue of the disturbance
hr tho purpose indicated. It is
expected tho presence of troops will tend
to prevent further trouble.
Fnvoruble to Mr*. Walk up.
K an8ah City, Sept. 4 ?A morning paper
publishes an interview with Dr. C. W.
Scott, a specialist of this city, who reports
that early Inst winter a gentleman introducing
himself as Mr. Walkup, an Alderman
of Emporia, Ks., called upon him for
advice, saying that ho had suffered for
some time from a chronic disease and had
t>een treating himself for it, using arsenic
both in solution aud pills. The visitor
appeared somewhat under the influence
of liquor, and after receiving some advice
from the doctor took his leave and the latter
lias not seen him since. He says, howover,
that he was visited yesterday by
Mrs. Walkun's attorney and recognized
Mr. Walkup's photograph among a down
others. Mr. Walkup during his call was
accompanied by a man whom the doctor
did not know. This testimony will probably
be nsed by the defense in the tnal of
Mrs. Walkup. who standi charged with
the murder ox her husband.

"We believe our order is based upon the jc

A Now Fonu of Crliitv Which In l'erplt xlnc
the Government.
London, Kept. 4.?Tho Government is
much perplexed over a new form of agrarian
crime which is becoming alarmingly
prevalent in Ireland. At the last assizes
in County Kerry, Judge l'alles decided
that perEous whose cattle had been stolen
were not entitled to compensation under
the Malicious Injuries act, although those
whose cattle had been houghed or hamstrung
were entitled to such compewation.
Under this decision tho mutilution
af cattle has becomo unpopular among the
moonlighters since, by these acts, they indict
no injury upon the owners of the cat>!<
final nnlv c.ina?? ininrv ami ilpnt.h fntl.n
unoffending animals.
Instead of mutilating the cattle of obnoxious
landlord?, baililfa, etc., the moonlighters
now steal the cattle outright ami
run them oil* to remote parts of the
country, or keep them snugly concealed
until tho hue and cry is over. The cattlo
thieves are well organized aud the animals
aro kept moving, being passed along from
one gang to another until they have been
driven across two or three'counties and to
a distance of hundreds of miles froin the
raid. Kohberies of this kind are now of
nightly occurrence in Home parts of Ireland,
jnd of nil the cases which have occurred
the police have not yet succeeded in
tracing and reclaiming a single animal.

[lately in a tavern yard at Boliball, in

Duff in company with Gately just previous
to tho latter's body being found in
tho yard. Two witnesses stated that the
prisoner and tho victim were drinking in
tho tAveTnJogptliyjS^ w(eut,out in the
yard seemingly on good toins. Gately,
it is alleged, incurred tho enmity of tho
Fenians by disclosing some of their secrets,
and the prosecution endeavored to show
that a price had been put on his hoad,
and that Dufl was detailed to kill him.
l ho prisoner s solicitor complained to
the court of the alleged unfairness of tho
examination, stating that be had not been
allowed to see his client, a/id that the ob?
jectofthe Crown appeared to bim as a

merely because he was an Irishman.
In conclusion, he said the prosecution of
