The Rock Springs Affair

L\ AX-To.v, September 16.— Mr. Isauc II.
;r«milcy, a**-:stant to President Adams, of
the I mon 1'ariiic It. It., ban been engaged
lor the past two day
r. rent disturbance at Rock Springs and
the mafsaere ot t hiuese miners. He was
met at Rock Springs yesterday Ity a com
mittee of citizens, two or three of whom
were miners, who ha«t tieen informally de
puted by.a public meeting, held «0011 the
the massacre, to present the tacts in the
.!«• to the representatives of the company.
With them was Mr. Medrsbam, of the
knights of Lai sir organization of the U. P.
( o. fhe hearing took place in Mr. Brom
ley's car and was routined exclusively to a
-tateineiit ot the grievances on the part of
the miners. When questioned concerning
•he burning of the <'hinese quarters and
the killing of Chinamen they declined to
an«wei, saying that was in the hands of
the civil authorities lor investigation and
that they should say nothiug atiuut it un

Mr Bromley said he did not In-lieve
any organization, w hich, so tar as lie had
Usui aide to judge, was directed by men

make the mistake of justifying the trans
actions at K«s k Springs ; that they must
see that it would put them so far iti the
wrong that pnMi<* opinion could not sus

tiie United
States government in the event o' a gen
ual strike, said of course he was not
authorized to speak for the company, but
had no dont that the statement heretofore
published wm sulwtantially correct, that
- snier than submit to the demands of the
-Hiking miners, that the Chinese should
be excluded Irom the mines and the men
guilty of murder, robbery and arson la* re
stored to their positions, the company
would surrender the management ot the
projierty to the United States government.
Being asked what he thought as to the
outlook at Rock Springs to-morrow tuorn
icg, said he had not at any time been able
te lielieve that the Knight* of latlior 01
ganization would put themselves in so
ialse a position as to undertake to justify
the outrages at Rock Springs by a general
strike. He had heard the testimony of
Lock Springs citizens anti miners present
ed to bun as a representative of the com
pany, and mi lew c. lient Iv in better form to
the government directors, and had not
l**eti able to discover a single tact that jus
tified in the remotest degree the reesnt oc
currences. It seemed to him that all the
testimony brought forward before himself
and the government directors was after
thought ou the part of those who
desired to use that transaction for
the furtherance of their t**rsonal end*.
He w as confident the government directors
were of the same opinion after they had
beard the discharged miners, their friends
and sympathizers present their own views
of the situation. Asked if the company
had serious apprehensions as to the situa
tion so far as lie knew, he said he lieli*»ved
the directors were perfectly content to stile
mit the question sis it now stands. If a
general strike is ordered njion this state of
the facts it will go out of the hands of the
management of the company and become
a question for the American jieople to de
cide. The company is trying to manage
its affairs so us to give no just cause lor
complaint to any of its employes, but will
not lie put in a position to justify such
outrages as were perpetrated at Rock
springs. They would not evade or avoid
the issue with '.he miners or other em
ployes on this question as it now stands.
They are prepared to resume work iu the
mines to-morrow morning, and offer em
ployment to all miners w ho desire to go to
work who were not engaged in the recent
disturlianve. If any organized attempt
was made to oh*tract them in the peaceful
operation of their mines, they will do all
iu their (Kivver to override the distractions,
and should they lind themselves powerless
will simply abdicate their functions and
let the goverment take hold.
The government directors, h. P. Alexan
der, M. H. Hanna and James W. Savage,
> . * tlfeftl IBM CM Butte. Mr.
Bromley, a«*»-oiii|ianie«l by Superintendent
Dickinson, return« to Koch Springs to
await the issue ot the order to open the
mines.
C'HEYKXXi . September 21.— Work was
resumed at the Rock Springs coal mines
this morning. All the Chinamen went to
wotk, also the white mechanics, engineer,
black smiths, firemen, and carpeuters em
ployed tit the mines, while the <oal miners
declined to work i.*td were paid oft. Every
thing is quiet and no more trouble is an
ticipated.
< tv ah a, September 21.— General Mana
ger Cal la wav of the Union Pacific to-day
instructed D A. Clark, superintendent ot
the coal mines .,t Kork Springs, Wyoming,
to pay off ill the striking miners and give
them pa**«-* to leave if they go within a
week. Callaway «ays they must go wittaiu
that timed jiay their tare if they goon
the railroad. He also says that he is stiil
firm in the determination that no niau
concerned in the recent massacre of the
Chinamen shall be employed hereafter and
that he received a telegram to-day from
president Adams ot the Union Pacific stat
ing that his (Callaway) course was ap
proved by the directory of (he company,
which will back him to the last. Callaway
now thinks there is little danger of a gen
_ _________________ rn M _
ral strike of the Union Pac ific men. as the
railroad employes prefer uot to identify
themselves to the extent of a wholesale
walkout with the comparatively «mall
handful of disgruntled miners. General
Schofield, who passed through here last
evening, held a short conference w ith Cal
lawav and other l niou Pacific officials, hut
little is made public. The fa*'t of Scho
field's trip to Chicago aud to 'he territory
ol this trouble, shows that* it is still con
sidered grave by the national authorities.
Cheyenne, September 21. — The J . aul -
ir'n special from Rock Springs says : M ork
has liegu-i iu two of the company s mines.
About 1UU Chinamen and a few white men
employed at the top resumed work, ihe
white men generally have refused the offer
of the company and exhibit no disposition
te go to work. No attempt has been made
to interfere with the Chinese miners. 1 he
mine* are being guarded by troops. l.a*t
tight one of the white miners named
Vowel, a mendier of the citizens committee
who presented the case of the miners to
Mr. Bromley and to the government direc
tors. was busy giving notice to all white
miners who were siis|tecte«l of a disposition
to resume work, that they must leave the
place within twenty-four hours. Notice
was also given to the deputy sheriff's who
have been doing guard duty at the mines
that they must quit. Mr. Hoyt, another
inemlier ot the citizen.« eommiltee who was
most «-onspicnoua in the management of
their earn, left town for Idaho with the
iutention. i: is r«*port«il, not to return. The
mim -.s are still in hope* of t*eiugsiip[>orted
10 Hieir movements by the Knights of
Lalwr. but the r>»eml**r* of that organiza
tion in the etnp oy of the eom]Ktnv are free
in their denunciation of the whole busi
ness, ami assert their confidence that the
strike wil lie confined to the miners. The
tailroat. officials here say that they will
have do ditliculty in procuring the services
oi white miners so tar as is necessary for
carrying on the work at the mines. Little
time will lie required to bring them here
and put them in place, hut they have no
tcars hut that they w ill lie able in a very
short time to have the mines running with
as lull force as liefore the recent outbreak,
I he Chin* -e Consul are still pursuing their
investigations and will probably remain
through the week. tien. Schofield and staff
will arrive at Rock Springs in the morning.
Polygamists Indicted.
Sa l.T Lake, September 16.—The grand
jury to-day found live indictments
under the l uited States laws. Judge Zane.
to-day, res|iou'ling to a request for instruc
tions to the grand jury, ruled that indict
ments for unlawful cohabitation were
proper b.r every distinct violation of the
law. Ellen Birmingham, second wife of
Thomas Birmingham, liefore the grand
jury to-day, said she had been married
eight years: had three children, one four
years ego by Birmingham ; two others
since, but didn't know the fattier; couldn't
remember like some folks.
Eliza Shaffer and Elizalieth S',a;k«y
were sent to the peuitemiury for contempt
in refusing to answer questions of polyga
mous relations, the tirst with Joint W.
Snell, and second with Andrew Whith.
Sai.T Lake, September 1*.—Bishop Jno.
Sharp, the Utah director of the Union Ba
cille, and one of the wealthiest and most
influential Mormons living, appeared in j
court to-day aud pleaded guilty of unlaw
ful in-habitation: He claimed that his
plural marriages were entered into before
ihere was any statute agaio«t it. aud in
good faith tm riling to their religion, hut
recognized the supremacy of hi.« adopted
country's laws, would live within them
henceforth, ard would not advise anyone
else to break them. He was lined
ar:d discharged on payment.

New i'oftK, September 21.— A Washing
ton special says : The resignation of chair
man Dorman It. Eaton, of the civil serv ice
commission, was sent in before Major 1
Him.klev, of New York, brought action ia
the U. S. Circuit Court to test the consti
tutionality of the civil service law, and
there is good reason to lielieve that at the
refusal of the President he will withdraw
it until the action has lteen tried. The
President has represented to him that his
resignation at the present juncture would
l*e interpreted as a retreat and a sign of
weakness, and might influence the result
of the trial. The President has promised
to the Civil Service Reform Association
that the constitutionality of the law skull j
1** defended und the object of his revisit
to Washington at this time is to prepare
a defense in the action which is to lie
brought before Judge Wallace, in New
York, on Friday.

and one physician ; 15 unmarried female
foreign missionaries. £15 native laborer,*

The annual statement of the tkiard of

year ending April 1st appropriations were
made to£2congregations in 10 Presbyteries,
amounting to $87,000. The receipts from
all sources, including the quarter centen

the Republican State Convention »re ar

more than three hundred in town. No
cantos will la* held until to-morrow night,
when it is expected that all the delegates
will lie on the grouud. It is said by the
delegates here that never liefore in Hie his
tory of N^w York politics have the Repub

that there is ahaolntely uo ground at this

of D rex el, Morgan A Co.; Judge Noah
Dayis, Judge I>avenport, Wbi. H. .Seward,
Hon. I,evi P. Morton, and Secretary of
State Joseph I». Carr. There ate several
others who will not receive more than
complimentary votes. The workers of the
party do not hesitate to say that there is
not yet any programme, aud that the prob
abilities are that there will lie none until
all the delegates have arrived, and the
conferences will then lie read. All the
delegates profess to Ik* for harmony, and

country delegates appear to be relying on
the New York delegation to present the
name ii(kih which they can harmonize, and
the city delegates say the nominee must
be a New York City mail. It is believed
the result will be the selection of a man
from that city, although there are many
here who think favorably of Seward.
Saratoga, September 21.— Delegates
fairly swarmed upon the town on the after
noon train*, ami the scone* a boot the hotel*
to-night are decidedly animated at this
hour 11 p. ru. >. There is no change in the
sit uattoil from that indicated early in the
day except that Cornelius N. Bliss and Levi
P. Morton have taken the lead, leaving
Cornell a go<s| third. It is very apparent
that Cornell blocks the way to reaching an
amicable arrangement without considerable
difficulty, and unless he can he gotten rid
of by the friend* of the other two gentle
men. they will have hard work in carrying
out their wishes It is nndersto«*! that
Cornell holds a sufficient uumber of votes
in the New York delegation to emhanus
Bliss: and .Morton, and it is probable that
this may necessitate the naming of a new
man.
Midnight--The Kings county 1 Brooklyn) !
delegation held a conference to-night and
appointed a committee to confer with the
New York delegation with a view to select
ing a candidate upon whom the delega
tions could unite.
The State committee held a meeting to

tion of Senator Warner Miller to.* tem
porary chairman
Saratoga, Septomlier 22.— This morn
ing opened w ith bright «un-shine, aud at
au early hour the corridors of the leading
hotels presented an animated scene. The
convention assembled in the Casino at 12
o'eh>ek. Indications jx>int to a lively scrim
mage for the nomination tor Governor.
Were it possible for the New York City
men to join hands upon a candidate this
morning before going into convention there
is no doubt such a man would secure the
nomination w ith a hurrah, hut all hope of
this'has been abandoned for the present,
aud the situation is a decidedly mixed
one. Th-re is not a man rash enough to
predict who will lie nominated among the
several hundred Kepuhlteaus now ou the
■ • :
At 12:20 o'clock James I). Warren, the
chairman ol' the State Committee, called
the convention to order. Roll havii g been
called the chairman announce«! that the
State Committee had agreed upon Senator
Warner Miller for temporary chairman,
w hich was greeted w ith applause.
In his address Mr. Miller called attention
to the fact that the Republican party of
the State for the first time in 25 years was
confronted by t*oth federal and state gov
ernments in the hands of the Democracy.
Iu future generations the heroes of the
late war. he said, would be plainl along
side of the Revolutionary heroes of out
first period. He advocated a rigid adher
ence to the protection of American indus
tries aud American labor cheers.) When
we turned over to the opjavsition the civil
affairs of the government no better civ il
service existed under the sun.
Referring to the political complexion of
the Southern States, tue speaker main
tained that throughout the length and
breadth of that land then* was not to be
found a single government which holds the
reins of government by the will of the |
people. The Republicans,he said, to prove
this statement only a«ked for a lair field
and a fair fight. Continuing in reference
to the alleged illegal balloting iu the South,
the speaker said that the men who have
managed the polls in that sec tion would
not continue to do the work without pay.
Upon the question of the civil serv ice of
the government, Miller said the Repub
lican party had put the law into practical
use aud were committed to it. He would
suggest, however, that the Civil Service
Commissioners be at once summoned to
gether and directed to add a clause provid
ing that **all jail birds and ex-convicts" are
forbidden to hold office. This he thought
would relieve the President of the United
States. He closed by predicting a victory
in November next.
The chairman was authorized to appoint
the usual committees, and the convention
to order. The chair announced that the
tir«t business in or.ier was the report ot the
eommiltee on contested seat.«. Gen. Sharp,
chairman of the committee, reported in
In vor of recognizing the contestants tu the
1st Albany district, and the regular dele
gation from 'he 2d Albany district. The
report was adopted as resjiected the 1st
distriet. A motion was made by NY tu. B.
AY nodin of Auburn, that in «nier to have
|K-r!«i*t g<M»d frelmg Ixith delegations from
the 2d AIbuny district la* admitted, each
member to have liait a vote. This motion
railed oat rattier a sharp del »ate, iu whuli
it was charged that the regular delegation
repre*ented a eombination with lVmœrats,
to which it vv is replied that the time had
passed when a man must lie set dowu as a
Democrat because he bore an Irish name.
The report of the committee was then
unanimously adopted.
The committee on permanent organiza
tion reported for permanent chairman Hon.
Jas. \Y. liusted, and a lut of secretaries
eoiii|>osed of the names of Yrooman, Check
ering, Stearns and Barker, as also a long
list of vice presidents. The report was
adopted amid great applause.
(■en. liusted took the chair aud spoke
briefly. Among other things he said :
**Tliat honest money, an honest ballot, au
bouest count, and protection to every form
of American industry will be forever the
cardinal doctrines of the Republican party.
(.Applause.] \Ve stand to-day on hallowed
ground. On yonder mountain iu sight,
that h( stor i c little hill where the couti
nental soldiers won the victory that made
nation, died a great captain w ho by his
great prowess and his skill saved for all
tune what the continental soldier had
gaihed. I nder that grand name we meet
here to day to renew onr fidelity to the
principles for which he fought and to fight
it out ourselves in that line until the leaves
fall in November. [Applause]

Haleb's remarks a crowd of several hun

this speech was the hearty at>plati«e aroused
by the casual mentiou of ex-President
