The Bight» of Foreigners on the Public Lands, 1 and Chinese \ Cheap Labor. At 2 o'clock yesterday ths t^al of six o the persons accussd of violating the laws of Montana tiy interfering with Chinese eoutraet labor, was begun btfere Hon. J. B. Wilcox, siltine as * Justice of the Peace. There is a wide spread feeling in this com munity on (ids subject, which runs all the de grees of the scale, from the man who says, 'Away with the Chinese," to ths man who mildly deprecates any conflict between for ei ners and citizens, although secretly sym pathizing with the latter. Again, there are other opiuious expres-ri, to the effect that law is law, and should be eaforced as vigor ously in favor of an unaaluralized foreigner as aa American eitizen, and consequently strongly sympathizing with the prosecution in the cases the trial ef which was begun on yesterday. So much has been said about the contract under which the Cliine»e were working when, as claimed, they were driven off by wl ite men, that we publish it in full, it is as fuliewa : This agreement made and entered into by and between Henry Williams by bis agent, J. P. Catching, of Silver Bow county, Mon tana Territory, the party of the first part, and Geng Wung Lung & Co. (Chinese), ot the same county and Territory, U e parties of the second peri, witussseth: That the said second parties in considera tion of the promises and agreements on the part of the said first party herein after con tained, covenant, premise and agree to and with tiie said first party, to cut, cord up and deliver to the said first party, er to his agent, ten thousaud (10,000) cords of cord wood aud to complete the same within ene year from and after the date hereof ; said wood to be cut and corded at the places designated by said first party. Said second parties further agree to cut the stumps sufficiently low for wsgons to pass over them, and to pile and burn the brush so that it will in no manner interfere with the hauling of said wood. And tiie said first party in consideration of the faithful performance by said second par ties of all their covenants, promises and agreements herein above contained, premise and agree to pay said second parties, or to their order or agent, for all the wood cut and corded by them uuder this contract, the sum of $1.25 per cord, and to measure, receive and pay for the same monthly, that Is, once in each month until this contract is complete aud all of said wood cut, corded *nd deliv ered. & p. be | affair.

This, for the present, is the schedule time for the de parture of the morning train ; ths evening train arriving at half-past ten o'clock. The present schedule time for the arrival o. the night train at Silver Bow Junction is 9:50 p. m. an allowance ef forty minutes time be in.; made for the run from the Junction to the Butte depot. Of course when the track lias b. eu in use for seme weeks the time will be materially reduced, if not abridged by half. Tiie caution which suggests slow run ning over the newest perlion of the track is fully justified by public opinion. The regu lar pasienger train now consists of a postal car, two passenger coaches and a Pullman sleeps','tlie latter as elegantly and comforta bly fitted up as are the largest sized broad guage sleeping cars. As soon as ths rapidly increasing travel on the road warrants ths addition, another first clam passenger coach will be put on. The branch road of the Oregon sboitiine will shortly run into Bellevue, Weod River. The incorporation of the Central Pacific Railroad Company of Utah was perfected last Monday in Salt Lake City. The organ ization now mad* covers the proposed rout# from Corinne, Utah, to Y anktou, Dakota, j running through the Territory of Utah. From the ball Laae Tribune of the 18th inst. we lear that the preliminary surveys are all wade, tiie captijl subscribed, and the amount required by law is deposited in this city. The incorporators are Charles Crocker, Charles F. Crocker, Willard B. Huntington, A. N, Tonne, all of California, and Themas Mar shall, Harry T. Duke, John Tieraan, John E. Dooly, John C.

The road will Ise 110 miles in length in Utah, and it is expect ed that, it wilt all be cvmpieted to the coal fields in Wyoming in 1S82. It will form a link in the Central Pacific trans-continental road from San Francisco Bay to the Missouri river, and, when completed, will make an other esstern outlet for Utah, direct wiih the Atlantic States. It can be made, if its mana gers so decide, an unqualified blessing to the whole West. The building of the Utah link will furnish a ready market next year for the surplus labor aud supplies of the three Utah counties through which it is to run. the Granger division of the Union Pacific railn aff is expected to be completed to Wood River by next summer, and is now wittiin eighty mile" of its objective point. From the Wood River Miner of the 17th Inst, we learn that C. P. Tatro, postmaster at Bellevue, and E. C. Headrick, his deputy, came up to Hailsy Monday with Colonel George Wo'cott, Surveyor in Chief of tiie Union Pacific Rail way Co., sud A. L. Robison, riglit-o!-w»y agent, o* "a voyage of dijeovery," as they to mied it. They took a run ever the ground set apart for railroad dspcits, freight offices, side tracks, etc., and also made a trip to the leading producing mines of Bullion. These railroad men aie very favorably impressed with the appearance of things in Bullion camp as well as in and about Hailey. This seems to b« the objective point for al! passen ger and ft eight business of the road, which ■'■really favois the assertion already made in the Miner that Bailey will be the terminus of tiie Wood River railroad. THE OTHER SIDS OF THE QUAR ANTINE QUESTION. No Violation of any Que.rant.ina Or dinance, or Cause lor Arrest. Buity City, Dec. 22. 18SJ. Editor Miner : Silt: My attention has been called to an article in your issue of the 21st. lust, with the caption, " Quaiautine," which was evidently written under a misapprehension of the facts of tiie ca««', sod which 1 wish to correct, and 1 beg that you will allow me space in your columns for that purpose. 1 be statements that L shall make I can prove by respectable witnesses. Oil the 20th inst, "OldJack," the Chinaman that had been at work in tl.e House—where we are now kept iu close cou fi einsnt, on account of having had small pox but who was discharged some days ago, came back after an old scrubbing brush which he had left. I saw the Chin* nan coming,and mot hits at the door, and would not allow hint to corns, in but got lus brush and gave it to him. Just aa he started eff, Mr. Loeb, tiie watch man, came up and began to kick the China man, and followed him seme thirty pacts kicking him all the time as hard as he could. The Chinaman then turned upon Loeb and knocked him down. Loeb got up and went for the Chinaman, who got him by the leg and threw him down again. Loeb gut up again and knocked the Chinaman down, aud while down eomutenced kicking 1dm on the head and face so violently that l began to fear he would kill tiie poor, crizy old fellow, i then went out and told Loeb not to make a fool of himself. He turned to me and told me to go into the house aud tuiud my own bust neu. I told hitu 1 would not go into the t house until 1 got ready. He said that he i would sse that I did, and went up tonandw j reported to the Marshal Marshal Vsnable came down and talked very insultingly to me. I caa prove that I was not on Park street, nor within thirty foet of any other etroot. The first attack that Mr. Loeb made on "Old Jack," some days ago, was right, and he did his duly wall, but this sec ond attack was in my judgment entirely un called for. "Old Jack" is a poor, insane, ig norant Chinaman, and had no inteutiou of doing anything wrong. Very respectfaily, Charles Shaddock. The readers of the Miner will remember the statement referred to in Mr. Shaddock's tetter, which is published in full shove, and on which he take» issue. The accouut already published was on the authority of the officers who served the warrant and made the com plaint against Mr. Shaddock. It is wiih pleasure that Mr. Shaddock it allowed an op portunity of stating hi* view of the case in these columns, and while not able to judge at present which of the statements published is the correct oue, it can be freely said that we are willing to be informed aud will gladly render Justice where truth shows it to be due. At far as old "Oolu Jack" ia concerned, the Chinaman who *as the cause of the difficul ty, all acquainted agree that he is not in his right mind, and may consequently have been utterly ignorant of the effect of the quaran tine regulations he is said to have violated. If Mr. Shaddock's statement is correct, there was certainly no violation of law on hi* part [From Saturday's Dallly. CELESTIAL SCENES In Montana Courts of Justice. The average Chinaman has about as much Idea ef the sanctity of an oath, as administer ed in an American court, as he lias cf good cooking. All frequenter» of Lutte restaurants which employ Chinese cooks will appreciate fully this comparison. In the first place an interpreter is an essen tial accompaniment to a Chinaman's idea of a court of justice. The interpreter is a medi ater between the judge and the witness, and whatever blunders the latter may make, he seems te rely on the interpreter's shoulders bearing the burden of his misdeeds. In a re cent trial before a Butte Justice ot ths Peace, in which the prosecuting witnesses were principally Chinamen, one of the latter tssti fitd that a fiercs-looking white man, who looked as if he killed a Chinaman before breakfast every morning, had come into his tent, and said to him in English; "If yeu don't light out firm here I'll bang you. All this the loquacious Celestial rattled off through the medium of the interpeter, pr* tending utter ignorance of the English Ian guage. On Croat- « x » wu n at : on counsel for de fense, after repeatedly addressing questions to the witness in English, and being assured by tiie interpreter and tiie opposing counsel that the witness did not and could not understand him, suddenly growled at the innocent look ing Celestial : "If you don't light out from hers, I'll hang you." The witness, interpre ter and opposing counsel Rgain reminded defendant's counasl liât the witness did not understand English, and the point was ob vious. Again, the following is a transcript from the short hand report of Hie cross-examiua of the Chinese interpreter in regard to the sanctity of au oath : "What did the court say to you?" "He swear." "Well, what does that mean ?" "Well, that moans—I can't tell exactly what it means, i can tell in Chinese, What a witness say that lie can say it, and i not tell eo lie what witness says." "Do you know what the penalty is if you lie—wliat will lie done to you ?" "Bid tiling," "Suppose you tell a lie, would they punish yeu ?" "Well, bail thing." "You don't know what would be done un der tiie American law ?" "Well, 1 know it very bad." "Would you be punished ?" "Y'es, sir." Chapter Election.

The following opinion of Bulte mises, and Montana generally, was expressed in a recent letter from H. B. White, formerly State Min eralogist of Nevada, te a Nevada newspaper : "On lire whole, i have never in any country seen a more prosperous people. Everybody is doing well. All the old timers are either rich or in a fair way to become so. The rail roads and tiie Butte mines will do something great fer Montana during the nsxt few years, j At any rate 1 shall not soon hunt for a better country."

Jn * recent sun disturbance a protuberance From Sunday's Dally. MINING REVIEW. Week Ending December 24,1881. THB GAGNON. Stoping is still progressingsteadlly between the 220 and 320-foot levels, with tesults if anything more gratifying than ever to tbs Management. The daily output of ora con tinues as large aud the percentage of silver and copper as great as ever. On the west drift ef the 320-foot level rich ore is being extracted, particularly fjom the "Fraction," owned by Col. Thornton individually. The •riguial Gagnon claim Includes 3t8 feet, a< d just west of this location lies the "Fraction," covering 50 feet, and making the total ot 375 feet. The west 320-fnot level has been run into the " Fra lion," the old shaft sunk on the latter claim bc'ug now unused. The ore taken out on the west level is said to be par ticularly valuable. STEVENS. The 200-foot level east has been runuing for the past few day* on a rich streak of ore about 12 inches in width. Two winzes have been sunk from this level as far as the water will allow, and stow the vein improved iu quality and size. On tiie 90-foot level from the west shaft a winze has been sunk about 12 feet on a nanow streak of ore which has at that depth increased to two feet of 60 ounce ore. A crosscut south from tire bot tom of tli* shaft 100 fset deeper bas cut tli* tame ore body. The stope on tiie 90-foot level is Ihoking well. Altogether the condi tion of tke mine is much «ore favorable than fer some lime past. MOULTON. Sine* Friday the Monlton hands have been •njoyiDg a well-ea ned holiday. Tuesday operations in the mine will he resumed with renewed vigor. Since the last report drifting has been continued east and west on the 100 foot level, aud west en ths 200-foot level, and raising has been goisgou at tw* points on the 300-foet level. On the 400-foot level work •n the west drift has been prosecuted, and a raise made on the center vein. There bas been a temporary slacking of the mill engine on account of a bested journal, sand having become accidentally mixed with the Albany grease, scratching ths journal slightly and causing it to heat, but ne serious difficulty is contemplated, as iu a very short time all strain will be avoided, when this im mense piece ofmschinery gets its bearings. Of the ere already run through the batteries from 90 to 96 per cent, has been cbloridized without difficult. The Cornish pu tops will be at w uk in about two weeks. An average of all ore roasted up to last night gave a chlori nation of 9S.8 per cen.. AUSELMO, The east drift on the 350-fcot, or lower level, is now in about 180 feet, and the aver ege assay and quantity of the ore lakeu out has continued about the same. The d stance hetweeu the two shaft» is only only about 90 feet, the old shaft being dewn th the same depth as the new one, the wo being connected by a tunnel. Tl.e dtiftieast and west on the lower level now measure 280 feet. j a j T e perfect satisfaction, ORIGINAL BUTTE." The Natioaai eompauy have been abund antly rewarded for their large expenditures in machinery and in tlieir magnificent new hoisting works, by the ricii strike made some two dajsago in the Original Butte mine. At no great distance from the shaft on the west drift, two hundred foot level, a body of »relias been lapped which is five feet wide and assays from seveniy-thres to oue hun dred ounces iu silver, some twenty-live per cent, copper, and giving every indication of ■.ontinnity. ALICE AND MAGNA CHARTA. It may be reasonably said of s mining company which keeps eighty stamps «oiislant |j engaged in reducing its ora product, that no news is good news. Since t lie last report in the Miner thsie hsv# been no remarkable developments in tl.e Alice and Magna Charta mines, but opera tions bav* continned steadily with tiie usual results, both mills runuing as we are inform el to their full capacity. The levels iu the Magna Chsria continue to expose a continu ous body of rich ore, giving an ave age assay considerably greater than that of the Alice ore. The new Bruckner furnace continues to WABASH in this valuable mine, which is now being developed with great energy, connec tion lias just been made between the west drifts on the 55 and 100 foot levels, by a winze, exposing very rich ore. On the east 55 foot level stoping is going on vigorously, the ore taken out yielding 150 ounces to the ton. Chinese Courts. in addition to the regular courts provided hy the laws of the United States fur the ad ministration of justice, it appears that there are in existence a«ong the Chinese here courts, which are unknown to the general puolic. Last evening there came to the municipal court of this city * Chinaman, by same Ah Sing, who slated that he had just been mulcted iu ths sum of $300 for the privilege of keeping a laundry in Walkerville. The fine had been imposed by a Chinese court, holding roguiar secret sessions iu this city, and operating under a aysteui utterly foreign to any judicial principles known to the laws of tli* United States. Ah Sing, otherwise known as Charley, wishes to start a laundry in Walkerville, and accordingly proposed to buy out Sam Lee. He now finds himself coufremed by the sen tence of the Chinese court thpt in addition o the consideration paid to Sam Lee, he must pay a license fee of $300 to the Chinese Court. Tliis is a state of affsiie utterly foreign to the civilization of the U, 8. and Territories, ami consequently demanding serious and im mediate attention fro« the proper authorities. .

Mr, Harris gave bund yesterday afternoon for ins appearance, with Col. W. ■ W. Botkin snd Mr. Chris. Houser as sureties. The decision rendered yesterday morning in the cases already mentioned as being betöre Just ce Wilcox, was as follows ; There is no doubt that there has been a vio lation of tiie law, and that certain pereous bave unlawfully interfered with the rights of the complaining witnesses. .Sufficient evi dence lias been produced bsfors Justice Wil cox to warrant his liindiug over fire of the defendants oh trial te appear before the Grand Jury of this county, and the bond of each on» is accordingly fixed at $250.

August Schmidt was net sufficiently identi fied by any witness pioducedas havingb«en a pany to the disturbance, ana he was con sequeuily discharged. It is only proper to say that thesentimeut of the better port on of tiie community sustains the decision rendered iu the e cases, ard up holds decidedly every effort made by the courts of the county and township to enforce an impartial administration of the law in favor e f and against all persons arraigned, win ther they be whit* or colored, natives or foreigners. THE SMALLPOX. The Happy Termination of a Great Soare.

There is at present only one smallpox pa tient in the pest lions*—Otto Abellng, who was taken Llitre nearly two weeks ago. The patients quarantined inside the city limits, at the horses of Mrs. Drak* and Mrs. Yates have been for some time convalescent, and will be discharged in a day or tw*. J. J.

Several weeks having now passed since tiie occurrence of any trash case ef th* d sease, and the patients uuder treatment having been cured and now pronounced out of danger and beyond the risk of spreading the contagion, the public may feel definitely .ssured the danger is passed, and that Butts is »gain restored lo that condition of health which lias ever b»*n its distinguishing char acteristic.
