OrNERAL HANCOCK DEAD.
The death of General Winfield Scott
Hancock takes from the country one of the I
most distingihed and exemplary soldism-
A, oneDS woib base had become the synocpm
CD of all the soldierly virtues, and who, not
withstadling he was once a nominee for the
Presidency, bad not tainted blehis record with
'' partisanism nor engagqd in. the many con
e- rovses in which his compeers have shown
so little that is creditable. Gen. Hancock
was 62 years old lacking but fvi days, and
at has been for years in command of the gnest
department in the United States, wich head
quarters at Governor's Island. He was born
er in Montgomery county, Penn., graduated at
or West Point in 1844, served with distinction
e- In the Mexican war, and against the Sem
inoles and Mormons, was serving in Lower
California when the rebellion broke out,
was relieved at his own request, went into
c- service with McClellan on the Peninsula,
Id fought up to Richmond and back to Harri
re son's Landing in the Seven Days' battles,
was at South Mountain, Antietam, Freder
id icksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg,
in (where he succeeded Reynolds after he was
. habot, held the field till Meade arrived and
m he was himself badly wounded), and then
down through the Wilderness Campaign
where his corps did splendid service. In
Id November, 1864, he was relieved at the front
at to organize the Veteran Corps. He had
:h command of the Fifth Military District, in
e cluding Louisiana and Texas, in 1678-8, and
on General Meade's death succeeded him in
the Department of the East. In 1880 he was
the Democratic nominee against Garfield for
the Presidency but failed. He was a soldier
but not a statesman, and the demonstration
is of this fact had much effect on the campaign.
The defeat did not spoil him, and he could
well rest on his laurels. At the time of his
id death General Hancock was commander of
ly the military order of the Loyal Legion. It
r- was companions of this order who had
>y charge of General Grant's remains, and they
in doubtless now constitute the Guard of Honor
ie to the remains of the late commander. He
Id was a true patriot, a model soldier, and a
splendid gentleman. The nation gives uni
versal tribute of honor to his memory and
ie sorrow at his death.
FEES UNDER THE SALARY BILL.
'e We publish in this issue an opinion by
1e Attorney General Hunt on the collection of
e fees under the Salary bill enacted last
session. The opinion is in response to an
e Inquiry by Ex-Governor Potts, who advo
cated the salary system in the Legislature,
I and wants this law to have a fair trial al.
le though it was changed, very materially to its
detriment he believes, from the bill as
originally introduced. While we have never
taken the same view the Governor does of
this system, we are very willing indeed to
see it have a fair trial and, if convinced it is
the better system for the people, to support
n it. Of course it has not yet been sufficiently
,t tested to demonstrate that matter.
rt The matter at. issue now we do not deem
h an important one for or against the law,
further than the advance payment of fees
e may make it unpopular with some persons,
e and an aggravating inconvenience to others
n until they have become accustomed to the
systsm. Doubtless the Attorney General is
cqirect that there is nothing mandatory in
e this particular act about advance payments,
R and the authority of officefs in the premises
ls derived from preceding ones. But we
t believe the officers have dohe right iu requir
F ing fees to be paid with thb work, and that
g If they did not do so individually, the Coun
e ty Commissioners should, as they have done
in this county and some` others, establish
that "regulation." Under the fee system if
a county officer saw; proper to credit a per
son because he was "good," or because he
was a political or personal friend, or one he 1
wished to favor, he could do so. It was his
personal andodlvidual matter and if he
lost it the loss fell on himself. It was not
the business of any other person, or of the I
County Commissioners whether he collected I
hbis fees or not. Under the salary system
the case is different. .The officer is now on -
a salary of a certain amount paid to him out I
of the county funds The county has no E
personal friends and it is not a candidate for
office. To it every man is alike. If it does r
does the work it expects its pay and it can- I
not afford to have thousands of its accounts a
unpaid and uncollctable, perhaps, exceit e
at greater coat than the amount. The posi
tion of the officer is also changed. Under i,
the fee system he was responsible to no one Ia
but himself for extending credit.; Now he
is an employe of the county and simply act- a
ing"in a clerical capacity in the collection of h
fees. He should not he allowed to, and n
should not be requlyed to exercise a discre- E
tionary power in collecting fees-trusting p
this man 'and refusing thabt, and perhaps 1
Incurring thbe censure of the Commissioners U
for his acts. Beside, this salary system is
urged as one of economy to the public, and it
that a very material reduction of fees can be b;
made uader it. This cannot be accom-o
plished if there are heavy losses on unpaid E
fees, nor is it fair that in de4ling with the hi
county one may pay and another not. With I
the officers deriving their pay exclusively fr
from ithe fee system it waould hardly be right fu
to compel them to collect fees in advance, di
but they were allowed discretionary power i
in the premises. With tile countly conduct- he
ilg the business and the officers on salary it at
seems to us that the law should be made c
mandatory in this respect. - The credit sys dl
tem would be ruinous. Our friends who to
advocate the salary law appear to think this w
course ofeash payments was adopted to s
render the measure objectionable. We are to
free to express bellef that this 1w itself ds
does not compel cash payments. But the p
Commissloners have dlrected otfeers under pa
pre existing laws to so collect, and we accept he
tli odium of sayinglt is lhe proper course am
to pursuae. -- - wi

A oiONDON MOB.
Lt London was, last Monday, the scene of one
I of the greatest mobs that has ever assembled
- there, the crowd at one time aggregating
n 40,000 to 50,000 people, who took possession
o Trafalgar Square, were oqsted by the
a police, and traversed the stret4, breaking
b open stores, mobbing houses and objeetion
i- able people, and threatened the government
a dlces. It was finally ispersed after re
k peatedly being driven from one point to
4 another by the police, who expelled the
it squads into side s'treets and then broke
- them up in detail. The meeting was called
n by mechanics, who really appear to be in a
it bad way, but the London Socialists took
n advantage of the opportunity and got pos
t- session of the meeting. They were beaded
tr by Burns, the notorious Socialist of Notting
t, ham, who made incendiary speeches, and
0 with the sacking and pillaging of liquor
t, houses, his audi-tors soon became an uncon
i- trollable mob. The pollee expelled them
s, after repeated attacks, and then the Socisl
r- ists and anti-Socialists had a battle, in which
i, the Burns gang triumphed, and they paraded
as the streets, carrying a red flag, taking pos
d session of some of the principal streets,
n and sacking objectionable houses. They
n steered clear of the military barracks. Al
n though $400,000damage was done to property,
it it is remarkable that no one was killed; and
d notwithstanding the riot lasted six hours,
i- the military were not called out. London
d has some bad citizens, and their immunity
n from punishment in an outbreak like the
s above is likely to result in greater violence.
r A SUBSCRIBmB wishes to know our posi
n tion on railroad tariffs forgetting, perhaps,
that we have expressed our views on this
d matter long since. The local passenger and
freight rates are simply enormous. The
is fact that it costs nearly as much to travel by
,f rail as it did in the old days of stage coaches,
and that it only costs twenty-five cents more
per hundred pounds to lay Bozeman flour
down in the London market than it does in
y Butte is sufficient proof of this, though the
r latter proposition would seem to indicate
e that through freights were quite reasonaole.
But we do not see how anything is to be
accomplished by an agitation of the matter
at this time, When Montana becomes a
1 Stats Its legislature will have an apportunity
of regulating it; but until such time the only
hope of any reduction must come from the
building of rival lines and the competition
thus instigated. Railroad corporations are
soulless and never make concessions until
obliged to. We had as well besiege a bat
f tlenent with a pop gun as try by persuasion
or any other means within our reach to
t induce a reduction of our local rates. We
o believe, however, that it would be a business
stroke to do so; that a low rate would induce
enough more travel to more than make up
for the reduction, that it would operate like
cheap postage and cheap car fare in the
r cities, and ultimately railroad companies
may see it in this light; but until they shall
or competition is instituted by rival lines or
r legislative enactments car be had there is
no remedy.-Husbandman; 4th.
The Husbandman states the case correctly.
The NEW NORTII WEST hammered away at
the railroad companies on these matters two
or three months last year, and aside from
the fact that there seemed to follw a more
liberal dispositlon to give "excursion" rates
there was no concession in rates of trans
portation. Newspapers cannot compel com
panies or corporations to do right, if their
wrongs are not illegal: and while the people
universally, so far as we know, approved our
endeavor there was never a public meeting
or any other concerted action by the people
to secure redress of- grievances. the press,
generally, stood in earnestly and steadfastly
to secure concessiotns from the companies in
rates and fares, but it had not even the
expressed support of the many more vitally
interested. Local freight tariffs and passen
ger Tares in Montana are simply extortionate.
But what can we do about it?
DEATH OF GENERAL HANCOCK.
The Distinguished Soldier and Civilian Dies
Suddenly at Governorls Island.
NEW YORK, 4 p. m., Feb. 9.-The follow.
ing official notification of the death of Gen.
Hancock has just been received:
GOVERNORES ISLAND, N. Y., Feb. 9, 1886.
-Major-General W. S. Hancock, of the
United States Army, died at 2:35 this after
noon. W. W. WHIPPLE, A. A. G.
Gen. Hancock's death was the result of a
malignant carbuncle on the back of hi neck
wbhichb had confined him to hbls bed for sv- c
eral days. No serious alarm was felt, how
ever, until shortly before be expired.
The news caused the profoundest sorrow
in commercial and financial circles as well
as among the business men generally. When 1
the sad news was known in the exchanges
and at the Custom House, the -flags were
immediately ordered at half-mast. It.had 0
not been generally known that General
Hancock was ill and his death was unex- d
pected. General Hancock was in Washing- C
ton d week ago and was obliged to return b
without paying his respects to the President.
The Larbuncle which caused his death made
its appearance on the General;s neck at the O
base of the brain. . P
The Commercial Advertiser says General '
Hancock has been ailing for some time,and P
has been unable, actively, to attend to his a
military duties on the island. He suffered
from a.complication of diseases, but still R
fought saairst the ailment, but the recent
development of a carbuncle while he was at
Washington coi' pelled him to remain in h!s ci
house. From.this attack he'did not rally, a

NEWS NOTES AND MhNTioN.
Would it not be a good plan for every city,
town and Viillage in the Territory to hold
public toee nga to give expression to the
kentiments oVfthie people in regard to the ad
mission of the Territory as a State? There
is no doubt bht that the majority of the peo
ple desire Statehood, but let na expraes those
views for the benefit of the National Con
gress, and also let us hear the arguments to
be presented against admission. The ques
tion has seldom been discussed except in a
general way, and though we believe the only
argument against Statehood is that of the
cost, still it may be well to give the opposi
tion a fair opportunit to present their rea
sons for their faith aiouliai.
The theme is a timely one. The Deer
Lodge Lyceua has invited a diseasiion of it
by a query submitted to Judge Batterton. It
is well that our people should consider what
is involved in the issue of admission. But
so far as it effecting the results in Congress
is concerned, we, think it useless. 'The elec
tion on the issue ir of record, and the aver
age Congressman would pay no attention to
the action of a town meeting.
Astronomers are beginning to discuss some
what earnestly a corona, of copperish or red.
dish light, surrounding the 'sun at noonday.
Its radius is about fifteen degrees. It has
also been noticed, in lesser degree, arpund
the moon. This corona first became visible in
November, 1882. It is called "Bishop's ring,"
after its first observer. This ring, with the
bluish glow nearer the sun, has been quite
noticeable here within the past two years
the most distinct we ever noticed being on
emerging from Cole's circus. This is no
joke, but just to establish the day. There
appears to have come into our a~iosphere
some new element, and it is probablle "Bish
op's ring" and the "red sunsets" owe their
origin to the same cause.
Frontiersmen are not over particular as to
the style of their language. Some time ago
a 9t. Paul lady was in bMontana. Jn conver
sation with a son of the frontier she •hap
pened to say, "I stop at the Re-an when at
home." "Wlhat?" he queried. "At the Ho
tel Re-an," she replied. The pronunciation
of what was simple "Ryan" to him startled
him. A few moments later, at the dinner
table, he turned to his St. Paul friend and
said, "Can I help onu to some re-es (rice)?"
He had caught on.-Pioneer PresI .

The philologist editor of the Independent
knows well enough that the word "pan"
means "to join or close together," and was
derived from the California argonauts, who
would. "pan" their gold dust-washing off

close together. After this it was carried out
to the nearest saloon and dispursed again. If

A Seattle Mob Evicts Chinese and Withstand,
Id the Officers.
S P LAN , Ore., Feb. 7.-The Oregon
t. Sdia Seattle special says: At last the long
io drawn out anti-Chinese agitatolohas reached
s- a sclminating point so far as Seattle is con
' cerned. It was thought by many when the
United States troops were withdrawn from
a here that the agitation was dead, and°as weeks
e went by without the commission of any
Sovert act this opinion was strengthened. As
-. events show, however, the feeling was not
evendormaut, and the agitators have been
.r quietly laying plans all the while. An effori
it was made to put these plans into executlon
It to-day, though with what success cannot yet
be said. An anti-Chinese meeting was held

ing, and headed by Acting Chief of Police
Murphy and accompanied by an enormous
crowd, which had apparently come togethel
e- by previous understanding, It pIoceeded tc
SChinuatown. The mode of procedure was
r. simple. The committee would approach a
s Chinaman's housa and knock at the door;
d when the occupants appeared they asked
n questions concerning cubic air and othes
city ordinances, and while the conversatior
was in progress a crowd would enter the
16 house and begin packing the contents upot
a wagon, which would appear at that june
- ture. It was useless for the Chinamen tc
n resist, and they generally acquiesced witl
o as good grace as possible. When the mov
*e able goods were loaded in the wagon the
e Chinamen were also placed on board and
driven to the ocean dock, where the steamer
"Queen of the Pacific" was lying ready tc
Ir sail for San Francisco. Not the slightest
warning of this movement had been given,
and the authorities were totally unprepared
o for it. The police force generally sided
o with the crowd, and made no effort to stol
the work of removal. Sheriff McGrew was
soon on the scene and commanded the mob
to disperse, but they paid no attention to
t him. When he would collect a few citizens
'- and attempt to interfere, the crowd would
n cease operations at that point, but carry it
a on without cessation in other quarters. This
r continued for several hours, Sheriff Mc
d Graw, Judge Green and Mayor Geslez
making such efforts as they could in behalf
of law, but without avail. About 10 o'clock
Governor Squire, who is in the city, issued
the following proclamation:
a To the People of Washington Territory:
J WHEREAs, It is represented to me by the
Msyqr of the city of Seattle as follows:
"Hon. W. C. Squire, Sir: The Chinese
residents of this city of Seattle are being
a unlawfully removed from this city by a mob
o unlawfully gathered together, the authority
fR of the city is not sufficient to keep the peace
or preserve order. I appeal to you for aid
HENRY L. YIESTER, Mayor."
Now, therefore, I, Watson C. Squire,
a Governor of Washington Territory, do here
B by publish this my proclamation, warning
all persons to desist from such breach of the
peace and that peaceably disposed persons
shall retire to their homes, except' such per
sons as are disposed to assist the sheriff and
the duly constituted civil authorities in
maintaining order to enroll themselves un
der the sheriff immediately for that purpose.
B Furthermore I order the military of the city
to immediately place themselves under
B arms, and that the commanding officer of
each company report forthwith to the sheriff
of King county for the purpose of rendering
f him military assistance if ,need be in main
3 taining the law.
r None at Seattle' this seventh day of Feb
ruary, 1886. (Signed)
S WaTSOn C. SQUIRE, Governor.
V When this was read to the crowd it was
received with.howls of defiaice and it had
absolutely no.pacifying effect. An attempt
was then made to ring the fire bells but they
were soon silenced. The two local com
panies of militia and three companies of
f Lome guards, organized at the time the
United States troops were withdrawn, how
ever, responded as quickly as possible, and
by the time they were ready for action there
seemed nothing for them to do. About 400
Chinamen were huddled together in a ware
house on the ocean dock and an immense
crowd prevented them from returning to
their homes, Indeed a majority of them
I showed much Inclination to remain, as they
were thoroughly cowed and eager to get
away. The officers of the steamship, how
ever, refused to receive the Chinamen with.
out ttickets. They prepared hot water hose
and took every precaution to defend the
vessel from any attempt to force the China
men on board. In this dilemmaacollection
was raised and enough.subscribed to pay the
passage of about 100. These were received
on board, each one expressiung a desire to go,
and declining the offers of the. officials to
protect them from violence if they remained.
The steamer should have sailed at 1 p. m.,
but was detained in the hope that some
arrangement would be made for the passage
of the remaining Chinamen, who were bud
died on the dock unable to return to their
homes and perfectly willing to go. About
5 p. m., the militia marched down to China
town arnd took possession. It was thoroughly
deserted, except by a few merchants, who
had been allowed to remain temporarily.
At 6 p. m., a writ of habeas corpus was
issued, charging that the Chiunamen were
illegally restrained of their libert' on board
the steamer. The writ was made returnable
at 10 this evening, and in the meantime the
steamer was enjoined from sailing. The
situation at this hour (9 p. m.) is uncertain.
A dismal rain is falling and the mob has
largely dispersed. The Chinamen who are
not on board the steamer are huddled to
gether on the ocean dock; two companies of
militla'and the Home Guards are patrolling
the streets. The Oregon Improvement
company also has eighty men guarding the
docks and- warehouses.
The authorities are determined that no
Chinamen will leave nowillingly. Every
effort will be made to avoid bloodshed, but
the utmost determination is expressed on
this point. Gov. Squires, in addition to
Issuing hbls proclamation, has sent the fol
lowing telegram to the Secretary of War,
Sectetary of Interior and Gen. Gibbon, come
manding Department of Columbia:
"SEATTLE, W.T. Feb. 7.-An immense
mob are forcing the Chinese to leave Seattle.
The civil authorities are arming a posse

United States troops be immediately sent to
Seattle. The troops at Fort Townsend can
arrive soonest and probably will be suffi

WarsoN C. Sqouzas, Governor.
The troops at Pbrt Townsend and Van
couver are ready to move, and are only
awaiting orders from Washington. Much
asurprise is expressed that the. movement
was arranged so quietly. The city is full of
strangers, asd it is hard to tell whence they
come. It is believed by manythbt the plans
were made in Tacoma, as many of the prom-"

reporters of both the Tacoma papers ar.rved
here yesterday. Mayor Weisbhach, of Taoo

that he could not send troope withetadireet

SAarTE, W.T., Feb. 8.-AL an early
hour this morning the militia and Home

the Chinamen were. cosoned, and took

been called on for troops, consequently he
did not order any sent there.
SEATrLE, W. T., February 8.-From
g the hour of the shooting the excite
1 ment and bitterness increased. Denuncia
tions of the Home Guards were beard on all
Ssides, and prominent citizens belonging to
the organization-were threatened with bang.
: ilug by the mob. At last a warrant was
sworn out in the police court charging five
I Home Guards with shooting with intent to
I kill. A constable attempted to serve the
i warrant but Judge ..rene declared the
t Guards were officers of his court and that he
would not have them molested. Just before
t the warrants were Issued, however, Governor
I Squire had determined to take vigorous
action. It was plain the most extreme
measures were necessary and Governor
Squire issued a proclamation with a long
and calm preamble reciting the situation
and closing as follows:
"Now, therefore, be it known, that I,
Watson C. Squire, as Governor of said
5 Territory, and - commander in chief of
r the military forces thereof, do hereby
assume military command of the city
5 of Seattle, and do hereby order that no
. person exercise any office or authority in
said city which may be inconsistent with
1 the laws and constitution of the United
r States or the laws of said Territory, and I
I do hereby suspend the writ of habeas corpus
s and declare martial law within said city."
This, of course, stopped all judicial pro
ceedings at once. Gov. Squire at the same
tie telegraphed President Cleveland stating
that the city was in a state of actual insur
rection and urgently requesting aid. Major
A. E. Alden was appointed Provost Marshal
and the military authorities took complete
possession of the city. Orders were issued
closing all the business houses between the
hours of 7 p. m. and 6 a. m., closing the
saloons indefinitely, and giving a warning
that all persons found on the streets without
passes after 7 p. m. would be arrested. By
a subsequent order the drug stores, hotels,
restaurants and newspaper offices were
allowed to keep open day and night on a
permit from the Provost Marshal.
The following order was also issued:
SEATTLE, W. T., Feb. 8, 1886.
General Or der No. 5.
All persons willing to enlist in the service
Sof the Territory to serve in the city of Seat
tle, are hereby called upon to report as
recruits to the Provost Marshal at the court
house in this city. All persons disposed to
violate any law of the Territory of Wash
ington or any law, treaty or constitution of
the United States, are hereby warned and
commanded to leave the city forthwith.
By command of the Governor,
WATSON C. SQUIRE.
G. O. HALLER, Adjutant General.
In answer to the call for volunteers, the
citizens are responding in large numbers,
and recruiting is going on rapidly. The
authorities have plenty of rifles and ammu
nition, and men are organized into com
panies as soon as enrolled. At this hour
(0:45 p. m.) the authorities appear to have
complete control of the city, but there is an
ugly feeling In the air. Rumorsof all kinds
are rife, and the greatest apprehensions are
The Chinese question seems to have been
entirely.lost sight of, the only feelings now
are revenge on one side and a determination
to uphold the law on the other. Many
prominent leaders of the anti-Chisese move
ment are openly on the side of law and are
making every effort to restrain their late
followers. The militia and Home Guards
have been on duty continuously since Sun
day morning, and they are about worn out
and cannot stand the strain much longer.
Appeal after appeal has been sent for United
States troops but for some reason ho orders
were issued from Washington until this
evening, and troops cannot possibly arrive
before the morning.
PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 8.-Eight conmps
nies of the'Fourteenth Infantry were placed
on board the river steamer "Lurline," this
evening, ready to go to Seattle as soon as

prevails. The regular troops have relieved
the militia and the mob Is subdued. In

The Lorillard Fortune.
NEW YORK, Feb. 5.-The World says: At
the time of his death Lorillard's fortune
wuas estimated at $2,000,000. His share of
the estate of rls father, Peter Lorillard,
which amounted to $1,000,000, was placed
in trust, and he sold his share in the tobacco
factory in Jersey City to his brother, Pierre,
for $225,000. By careful ipvestments he
almost doubled the original amount. One
million dollars of the money e1~ goes to his
widow, and the other million in trust will
be divided among his brothers and lsisters,
as-Lrillard died without Issue. As to the
future of his horses, all of them are disqual
ifed for the stake engagemen.ts made for
them in 1884 and in 1885, to ron this year 1
and in 1887, including those made by letter 1
from Nice to be ran at Sbeepshead Bay in
June. In this reqpect George .Lorillard's
death is a greater loss to the turf than Pierre
Lorillard's retirement. It has been Intl.
mated that the transfer may have been by 1
George Lorilard either to Louis Lorllard t
or possibly to one of Pierre Lorillard's sons. '
If such la the case It is not known. The a
chancqs are that the whole property will be(
sold in due time.
