Oma u a, Sopt. 0.?General Manager Cutaway,
of Uie Union Pacific railroad company,
was asked this afternoon to make a
statement of the situation at the Rock
Springs, Evanston and other mining
camps on the line of that road regarding
the existing trouble between the Chineso
and m hitoa. Mr. Calloway said that notice
has been served on JJeckwith and (Juinn,
coal mine contractors at Rock Spring! and
Evanston, to remove all Chinamen from
Evanston by to-day otherwiso serious
trouble would ensue. The United
States Government has sunt troops
thore and he assumed that order
would soon bo restorod. "In consequence
of the difiiculty experienced."
coutinuod he, "in getting reliable American
miners in the Territories. A contract
was made some ten years ago, uuder
which a certain proportion of Chinese
were engaged. Buth classes, he asserted,
aro now paid fully 30 percent higher
wages than are paid in Eastern mines. At
Rock Springs, where the massacre occurred,
ihe coal company's returns show
that during the pest month there were
employed about 500 miners; at Evanston,
300. and at Carbon 300. All those at Car*
bori were Americans, while at the
other two places tliey are divided,
two-thirds Chinese and one-third
Americans. Their pay is from 75 cents
to a dollar per ton mined, according to the
width of the veins and difficulties encountered
in getting out the coal. Both classes
are paid at the same rate, and have been :
averaging about three dollars per day to \
the man for eight hours work. The
Americans being more industrious and
akilfull get out a larger number of tons 1
than the Chinamen, and many of them 1
earn over $100 per mouth. This scale has
been in force many years, and wps
supposed to be satisfactory to the 1
men. The only advantage claimed by the .
coal company in the employment of 1
Obinrse was tnat it euablod thorn to mini! !
suillcient coal to keep the trains moviug
when tlio other miners were otfou strikts.
Last winter all the men at Carbon weut ;
out by order of the Southern Colorado 1
uainers uniou, while they admitted having j
no grievances of their own. The Mormons
anil Chinese will not join their unions 1
I ami thftrpfnrn cnnifl under their bane.
The Mormon miners are now moving
their families away, fearing a repetition 01
last week'# trouble.
Mr. Calloway was asked to diflno the
policy of hia company. He replied that
jnollenslve employee of the coal department
and Borne of its oHicers have been
driven from their homes; had their prop
erty destroyed, and many of theiu were
foully murdered. They are now awaiting
protection from the Territorial or Federal
authorities, and when they can bo assured 1
of this we w ill resume operations.
Miners Aneilcd.
Chicago, Sept. 6.?The Daily Noes' i
special from Rock Springs, W. T., says: j
Ten miners were arrested to-day by the ,
Sheriff ou a charge of murder and i
arson in connection with tho recent
AUti-Chinese outbreak. Five other 1
I arrests wore made yesterday. There was
no attempt to avoid arrest and tho men 1
have no fear of the result if brought to '
trial. Additional arrests are oxpected tomorrow.
A committee of five appointed 1
by tho miners and business men pf Rock ]
Springs are to leave in the morning for 1
Omaha to visit tho Union Pacific oliieers 1
and presents large amount of sworn testi- 1
mony asserting that decided preference
has been shown the Chinese miners and
that white miners who complained thereof
were made to suffer in various ways, and
in inanv anmmarilv discharged.
Troop* Ordered Out.
Wabiiisotoj*, Sept. 5.?Adjutant-general
Drum to-day telegraphed instructions
to Mujor-general Schofleld at Chicago to
order additional United States troopt to
Evanston, W. T., where the fleeing Chinese
aro concentrating, and to all other
points along tho routes of tho United
State* mails in that territory where there
are indications of trouble. Information
was received to-dny that two companies of
soldiers ordered to the scoao of disturbance
yesterday arrived at Evanstoo this mornlug,
aiul that tho condition of affairs there
is threatening.
Tho instructions already given to the
United States troops in Wyoming contemplate
only the protection of the mails,
but it is understood that, in case the troubles
continue, the President and his Cabinet
wijl consider tho general question of
directing the military forces to suppress
the disorder by the use of arms if necessary.

returned to work. At a meeting hoi i last
night measures were takon to put a stop
to the drunken carousals of a few of tboir
number who had been celebrating theremoval
of the Chinese.
Two more dead Celestials were found
to-day, one in the ruins of Chinatown And
the other beneath a railroad bridge about
Smile east of the place. Tbo latter had
een wounded and nad managed to walk
that far before giving up. Slinera who
took an sitivo wart in the attack upon
Chinatown say that less than one-thud of
the dead Chinese in the ruins of the
houses have been found thus far. They
declare that no less than twenty-live ware
shot down inside the burned bnildings.
These buildings had dirt roofs, which
covered up the dead (Jhinamen when the
dwellings uuccutnbed to the flames, and,
as no actual anarch has boon made in the
ruins, it Is quite probable that the miners'
statements are true.
Chinarnnu are still arriving at stations
East and West almost dead from fright
and weak from fatiguo and lack of food.
All are shipped to Kvanaton by the company.
They reiterate the statement that
many have died in the hills from wounds
received in the attack upon them.
it is reported thgttho white miners at
Almy, in tho western ?nd of the territory,
have notified the Chinese laborers in the

1 Legation in this city, who has resided in
| China lor forty yearn, part of the time u a
, representative ol tiiia country, and again
> aa an official In the Chinese diplomatic
' service, waa speaking to-day concerning
the diplomatic aapect ol the masaacro ol
i Ohioeeo In Wyoming. He aaya he thinks
I it may be the subject of a correspondence
, between the Chinese Foreign Office and
the State Department here, but he doea
not think China is likely to take any vigorous
action in the matter, -hr the first
place, ho says, the Chinese Government in
opposed to the emigration of her subjects.
Thero is an old Chineso law which
has been in force until within recent
years, which absolutely prohibited
Chinamen leaving their country
to make their home elsewhere. Through
the intervention of the English, the
Chinese officials were induced to relax the
rigor of this law, and it has of late years
become almost a dead letter, but still the
policyof the Government is against (Chinamen
leaving their country, and the
Chinese immigrants in this country, while
not exactly outlawed in their own country,
are looked upon with disfavor. The
Chineso Government does all it can to
prevent Chinamen leaving tho country;
and it is only through the efforts of foreigners
that lar?o .numbers of coolies are
brought here. Under these circumstances,
Dr. McCartee thinks Chinese cflicials will
not care much about the Wyoming affair,
and it will not become generally kuown in
The attacho in charga of the Chineso
Legation here, in the absence of the Minister,
stated that they had notcommunicated
with tho State Department on thj>
subject, as they wete waiting to hear from
tho Minister, who is in New York, lie
thought, howover, that correspondence on
the subject would bo opeued, and said
that, Notwithstanding his country's opposition
to her subjects leaving home, these
bad not done so in violation of any law,
and had a claim upon their country.
An Interview with Mr#. Walk op t'oucerntuc
the Story of Dr. Hoott.
Emporia, Kan., Sept. o.?In regard to
the now theory brought forward by what
is said by Dr. Scott, of Kansas City, in
which that physician slated that Walkup
had been taking arsenic in liquid and solid
form for nearly two years for chronic disease,
your reporter had various interviews
to day. Mrs Walkup was called upon in
her cell at the court house, aud when
aeked if she had read the report from Kaujas
City, said: "I havo had the story repealed
to uio."
"Do you regard it plausible?" asked the
Yea," said she, "I do. The story tallies
very well with circumstances which
came under my observation. After calling
on Dr. Scott of Kausaa City, he was
very sick on board the boat en route to
New Orleans. In his desk at home I once
found a small phial while getting some
paper to do some writing for Mr. walkup.
fne pbial contained a brownlookiug fluid,
and he told me to leavait alone." Ia response
to another question she saiJ:
"Knowing my innocsn?*e, I havo expected
something to corno to light that would
vindicate me. I have the greatest contidence
in the truthful nesa or the Kansas
Uity theory."
Judge Houston said that while he could
not yet judge as to the weight of the Kansas
City theory, ho thought it worth investigating.
Some who already believed
her iunocent, think that the Kansas City
3lory solves the mystery, while certain
physicians, some of whom are acquainted
with J)r. Jrcott, and others say thut theory
is too thiu, even for consideration.
D. S. Bell, Walkup's partner, in speaking
of the theory, said tint it is unreasonable,
for Mr. Walk up knew before his
Jeatn that Mrs. Walkup was suspected,
and after his death would be arrested. It
Mr, Walkup had poisoned himself ho
would certainly known it, and not have
allowed liis innocent wife to be arrested,
with the prospects of bslhg convicted simply
to cover up an indiscreet action of hia
Mrs. Walkup ia developing not a little
sympathy, regardless of her innocence or
guilt, from the undeniablo fact that her
husband's private life was exceedingly
ijueationable, aud developed many excesses,
end from further facts he deceived
her concerning his own standing and
wealth, all of wnioh (end to enlist a sympathy
on behalf of tho accused which may

Madrid, Sept. 5.?Last night news was
received liere that a Gorman gun boat
reached Yap, one of tbe Caroline Island?
landed marines and sailors and hoisted
the German (lag. This news frenzied the
populucc, which gathered in front of the
German Embassy, tore down the coat of
arm, dragged it through the streets and
burned it in front of the oflice of the Minister
of tl;e Interior.
A later dispatch respecting the German
occupation of Yap states that the Governor
of that island wished to resist the
lunding of tho German marines and sailora,<but
that the commander of the Spanish
man-of-war b'an ijuentin, which was
the only vessel of that nationality in the
harbor at that time, refused to agreo with
the Governor as to the adoption of such a
course, or to lend tbe latter assistance. It
is generally believed the commander of
the Spauisn mau-of-war Velasco, which
was expected at Yap on the 2Gth of August,
carries with him cner^tic orders.
The Ministers and the civil and military
authorities met King Alfonso at the depot
on his arrival in this city. Large crowds
of people lined the route taken by the
royal party from the depot to the palace,

King was repeatedly greeted with cheers.
Notwithstanding ttio excitement the
most perfect order prevailed.
The Berlin National Zeitung commenting
on the scents enacted in Madrid on receipt
of the news of the German occupation
of Yap, says: "Spain must give
Germany the necessary satisfaction for
the events of last evening." The other
newspapers are silent in regard to the
Lt Paris eays editorially that France
has no reason to meddle with tue SpanishGerman
quarrel,.and that France should
remember 1870. M. De Freycinet, the
French Minister of Foreign Aflairf, has
telegraphed Biron Des Michels, the
French Ambassador at Madrid, to obseive
the greatest prudence during the difficulties
at Madrid over the Carolines afl'air.
The event] in Madrid are causing a sensation
in Paris. Arbitration for the settlement
of the Carolines question is now
considered impossible, and the position of
King Alfon6oand his ministry is regarded
as precarious. Leading Spanish residents
in this city say that war between Germany
and Spain, or a revolution, is now certain.
L>i France and U Paris say that King Alfonso
will be overthrown unless he heads
the war party.
The Cauoo of the ynarrel.
The Caroline Islands, for the possession
of which Germany and Spain may go to
war, aro a group of coral formations,
several hundred in number, in the Pacific
ocean, 10? north of the equator and due
oast of the Philinnines. Thev are divided
ill to forty-eight group?, and are known as
the Pelew Islands or Western Carolines,
the Central Carolines and the Eastern
or Mulgrave Archipelago. The latter
group is subdivided into the lladick or
Marshall Isles and the Gibert Isles. The
most importantof theCarolinasis Yap, the
chief of the central group, and an idea of
the amount of territory covered may be
estimated from the fact that the Pelew
division atone cover 340 square miles
It is estimated that the native population
is close upon 200,000. These aborigines
aro a tine race of the Polynesian family,
popsesscd of considerable intelligence and a
certain amountof civilization. At Yap there
is a well-built nativo town, whero the inhabitants
are largely shipbuilders. The
climate is generally agreeable, and bread
fruit, cocoauut, sugar cane, oranges and
bananr.s are grown in profusion. The
lagoons are tilled with turtle and pearl
oysters, and sandal-wood can be procured
in very large quantities from the forests.
Tbo earliest discoverers wore English
navigatois, but Spaniards were the explorers
who tirst took deliberate possession
of the Archipelago in 1U8G. There
ha-j, however, never been any recognized
settlement, although merchants of several
nations have for many years had tracing
treaties with the natives and small colonics
on the islands. From an archieologist's
point of view, tho Carolines pocaees
exceptional interest, a i a series of wonderful
ruins are scattered over the group, indicating
that tney were once inhabited by
an unknown raoe, who must have possess*

Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 5.?The vestry of J*
St. Philip s Church held several meetings if
last week for the purpose of investigating tl
charges that had been preferred against 8}
Kev. J. G. Armstrong, rector. At a meeting
held this afternoon to agr e upon a
verdict a resolution was adopted declaring
it the opinion of the vestry that the facts ?
do not demand the Withdrawal of "conti.lence
in our esteemed rector." In conversation
with members of the vestry it I*
was ascertained that while in Cincinnati j!j
Dr. Armstrong had drank a good deal of {$
heer and had been partially under its in- bt
fluence, not sufficiently intoxicated, how- Kl
over, to lose control of his faculties, and
that while in this condition had visited a b<
number of disreputable houses for tbe purpose
of finding and reclaiming, if possible, 0>
a female relative whom he had learned
was in one of these resorts. He found ~
hcrt purchased a ticket and sent her
home. Bishop Beckwith presided at the
investigation. Armstrong will fill his ac- w

Continue#?A Bolter Feeling In the Iron
Market?The Clearing Huuee Exchanges.
The Wool Market BtlU Hold# np.
The Oole Trade a Bhntle Better.
New Yobs, 8ept 5.?Bradttrctft Journal
in itscommercial summary says: The
general business situation as reported to
UradtlreeC?continues quite as favorable as
reported last week. The activity is mainly
confined, as heretofore noted, to print
cloths, bleached cottons, wool and boots
and shoes, but the feature of the week is
f jund in the improvement noted in eastern
iron marketB. Notwithstanding the reported
gain in this line in the South and
Weft manufacturers and dealers east of the
Alleghenies had failed toreporta like gain.
Within the past week the improvement
has become more general. The inquiry
for pig iron has increased and one sale
i't new lor* is noieu 01 /,uw urns 01
forge at $15, for which $14 50 had beon
offered. While none in the trade admits
the likelihood of a boooi, all appear satisfied
that there is a better business in
sight. Dealers in Scotch pig have advanced
prices 60 cents per ton, and orders
have been cabled in some instances for j
shipment to this port Steel rails for i
uoderate sized lots may be had at $28a i
.'8430, while smaller quantities command ]
521). No large orders extending in deliv- l
sry beyond January 1 will be taken at <
heae figures. One small lot for prompt t
lelivery has been sold during the week at I
532, furnace delivery. These are very en- J
iouraging features. Scotch pig at Glasgow i
b Dials higher, with some speculative fi
nd jobbers' hands at the East has*been c
ree, and previous advances have been t
ally sustained. August sales of dry goods I
t Boston are heavier than those of that J
lonth in 1S84. The movement of general c
lerchandise, affected as it is in the lines c
otcd, is regarded as seasonably active, b

The Wool Market. ?
Boston, Sept. 5.?The Advertiser in its
eekly review of the wool market says: c
ontrary to the expectations of some, the P
larket shows increased sales of nearly p
,000.000 pounds over last week. There
srtainly appeared good ground for these "
xpsctations, for the average of the sales
f the prev'ous seven weeks has been over r
,000,000 pounds, and more than the f
umediate wauts of manufacturers should i
avo been met by them. b
The feature of the market iB practically p
ae continued sharp demand for low 1
ools. which are from 3 to 4 cents per r
ound higher than the lowest point. b
Extra super pulled wools have been ad- \
anced 2c per lb this woek. It will be replied
that, early in the season, the atten- i
on of manufacturers was directed, in this
Rport, the low prices these wools were r
elling at, being out of all proportion to
eece. Pullers have now either with- D
rawn their wools, or have advanced 1
heir prices at least 3c per lb.
Some lots of XX delaine have been sold J
130c, and some No. 1 combing has also J!
rought that price. It is noticeable that 1
here is a greater difference than io usual a
etween washed and uawa^hed combing, 1
ow 10 or 11 cents, whereas, generally, ?

rade is just a shade better this week.

activity among the independent
vena, notably the works of W. J. Eainey
nd Uompany, Moyer and Dawson. They
lave secured orders for 20 cars per day
dditional and this hoi had the effect of
tutting them on full time again. The
utlook continues promising. Prices re- ?
oain at $1.20 for foundry coke; $1.40 for
urnace coke, and $1.75 for crushed coke,
ihipments are now over 3,000 cars per
reek, as they were under it two weeks
go. To be exact, the weekly output is
low 3,000 cars, and is on the rise. The
irightening prospects of the iron trade
ive promise of a continued incroase in 1
he demand, and some of the more san- r
uinu coko operators anticipate an order r
a the near future to fire up more ovens. {
jabor continues plenty and there is no {
nek of cars. j

Chicago, Sept. 0?Tho red baunere of (
socialism llauuted in tho market square
to-day. Processions of men, women, boys \
and girls were marching an-j countermarching.
Each woman bad either a
crimson feather in her hat or wore a piece
of red ribbon pinned to the bosom of her
dress. The men had red bands about their
hate and more of the same material fast- a
ened to their coats. The children wore g
red stockings. The occasion of this display _
was the socialistic picnic, organized in
opposition to the Trades' Assembly dem- d
onutration to-morrow, because the latter si
had voted to taboo the red flu?. Speeches*
to the assembling crowd were made by u
Messrs. Field, Parsons and Spiea. A l
tirade against capital was indulged by all j(
the speakers, each putting much streos p
upon the assertion that poverty is close- a)
ly allied to social degraditlon.
