Ohineso Evicted.
Portland, Or., Sept. 5. In tbe bop
fields at Buttevllle, twenty-nine miles
south of tbis city, there was a scene of
Chinese eviction yesterday. About 100
white men herded up fifty-six Chinee
bop pickers, drove them to the dock,
and forced the captain of the steamer
to bring the Chinese to this city. There
are about 600 more Chinese around
Buttevllle in the hop fields and more
trouble may follow.
An eye-witness gives tbe following
"Tbe evictors were under tbe leader
ship of u young man, apparently not
over 25 years old, with singularly reso
lute features. The men started for tbe
hopflelds in a body, and acted very or
derly. The first place they called was
at tbe bouse of Mr. Ellers, of the Hop
growers' association. He wan not ul
home, but Mrs. Ellen, who answered
tbe knock, received the men very kind
ly. In response to an inquiry by tbe
leader, she said that Chinamen were
employed in tbe fields. Then the lead
ersald: 'We have not come to make
trouble, but to get work. Our families
are in need, and we must buve employ
ment.' Mrs. Ellers replied that so far
as work was concerned, -she would
pledge her word that the six Chinese
on tbe fields would be returned to Port
land at once, and tbe 100 or more en
gaged by Mr. Ellers and on tbe way to
Buttevllle would be stopped at Boon's
Ferry and sent back to tbU city. Mr.
Ellers returned home soon afterward
and carrried out bis wife's promise.
The army then moved on to Beck's
hopflelds, three and a half miles west
of Buttevllle. The same demand was
made, and was refused by Mr. Beck on
the ground that be bad written con
tracts with tbe Celestials and could not
discbarge tbem without losing a largo
sum of money, "if you oannot, we
can,' was the arm repiy oi tue ieaaer.
Mr. Beck was politely told to step
aside, and then the men began search
ing for tbe Chinese. Rumor of a riot
bad been floating about Buttevllle for a
day or two, and on tbe first appearance
of tbe men the Chinese bad scampered
away to places of safety. Borne sought
refuge iu tbe fllelds, some under bog

pus, some in hay stacks, but all were
rounded up In the middle of the road
They were greatly frightened, but
when given to understand that they
would not bo harmed, overcame their
fears of tbelr captors, and chattered
pleasantly witb tbem in broken Eng
lish. There were forty In the gang,
and tboy were marched back to Ellers',
where tbe other six were taken Into
custody. Then all were taken to the
dock and placed under a guard. The
whites then returned to Beck's neigh
borhood and visited a hopfleld and no
tified tbo twenty Chinamen employed
there to pack up and prepare to leave.
This tbey did quietly, and they were
escorted to tbe dock aud placed with
tbelr countrymen.
"The eviction was conducted in a
very orderly manner, and was all over
by 1 o'olook. There was no sign of
vlolouce until preparations were made
to put tho Chinamen on tbe boat.
When the Toledo arrived at tho dock,
the crowd, whldh then numbered about
400, ordered the captain to tako tbo
Celestials to Portland or anywhere else
out of tho city. He refused, and was
then told that there would be blood
shed if tbey remained in Buttevllle
The captain was 'determined not to
tako them on board and then someone
shoved a Cbluameu oil thedook. He
fell to the boat but was not hurt. An
other one was pushed offand fell to tbo
deck. Borne one in the crowd shoved
a third one off the deck but bo was not
so lucky as his companions for bo fell
Into the river and got a drenching.
Then the captain saw that if he did
not take the Chinamen on board there
would be bloodshed, and accordingly
brought them to Portland.

Record Beaters.
Fleetwood, 8opt. 6, Directum, tbe
"Blaclr Whirlwind" from California
yesterday broko tbe world's stallion
record. Ho beat all four-yoar-old figures
and wont ahead of all marks given to
trotters of five-year-old, and one-half of
bis mile was the fastest ever trotted by
unv horsu on any track.
He was entered to start ngalnBt tbe
world's stallion record of 2;07J mado on
the kite track by Stamboul; tbo kite
record of 2.-00 mado last Thursday by
Nancy Hauka and the world's record
of 2:04 made by tbe mare. If be broke
tbe track record ho was to get a purso
of $6000.
Wbon bo started away Directum was
followed by a running horse, Tbe
black stallion fairly Hew to the quarter
in SO. Tbe Journoy to tbe half was all
down bill though it bad one turn. It
was mado in ooo minute and one-fourth
seconds. Then Kelley urged the black
stallion with all bis skill. Ho passed
tbe three-quarters' in 1:32 And as ho did
so tho running was moved up another
peg. Turning into tbe stretch Kelley
began slapping the record breaker with
his reins. Tho borso was pretty well
winded but continued on his ournoy
at a fast and even pace. Thirty yards
from the wire, however, he appeared to
be all through and despite Kelley 'a slaps
tired to a walk as tho watches clloked
2.-07 on tbe mile.
Pascal, tbe black gelding stepped five

Indian Blarcr? Ia Connaetleut.
Dr. Bernard C, Stoinor, librarian
of tho Enoch Pratt Freo library, has
complotod a monograph on "Slavery
n Connecticut" Among tho inter
esting facts in the work Is tho state
ment that tho first slaves in Connect
icut wero not negroes, hut Indians,
being of tho Pequot tribe, -which was
overthrown by Bottlora in 1088. Tho
drat law against tho slavo trade, too,
was passed in 1715 against tho im
portation of tho Tuscarora Indians,
who hod boen captured by tho Caro
linians in war. Tho first idea of
slavery in Connecticut was thon that
captives in war woro Blaves. Soon
after tho foundation of tho colony
negroos woro introduced, a few at a
Umo, chiefly from tho West Indies
and not from Africa. Thoy woro
owned for the most part as house
hold Borvants, and tho Connocticut
notion of Blavory was tho patriarchal
ono, that slaves belonging to tho
family of tho master differed from
apprentices only in boing bound to
servico for life.
Slavery was tolorated everywhere
In Connecticut throughout tho co
lonial period, but with tho coming of
tho Revolution came tho idea that it
was unrighteous to hold men in
bondage This fooling led to tbe act
of 1774 prohibiting tho foreign slavo
trado, and that of 1784, providing
that all thereafter born as slaves
should bq-froo on reaching their twenty-fifth
year. This ago was after
ward lessened to 21. Connecticut is
romarkablo as boing a Btato -which
succeeded in gradual emancipation.
When Blavory was finally abolished
thoro in 1848, fewer than 20 slaves
wore in tho state, nono of whom
was under 64 years of ago. Balti

Emotional Efle of Mr. Slddon' Acting.
Every ono knows tho stories of tho
effoct Mrs. Siddons produced. Her
audloncos lost all command over
themselves and Bobbed, moaned and
oven howlfcd with emotion. She
could somotimoa scarcely be heard
so loud wero tho lamentations of the
pit. A Scotch poet described the ef
fect at tho Royal theater, Edinburgh,
in 1784

Younsr ladies used suddenly to
shriek, going off as though tbey had
been stuffed with detonating powder.
Men were carriod out gibbering, in
hysterics. Fashionablo doctors at
tended in tho theater with the ex
pectation of being amply occupied
throughout the close of the perform-
anco. umo. tie utaoi has given a
celobratod description of Mrs. Bid
dons' fronxied laugh In the last act
of "Tho Fatal Marriage," a sound
which was always the signal for
genoral swooning and moaning.
All this appears very odd to us and
may in part, no doubt, be attributed
to an emotional habit of the times,
but at least it was the expression of
a highly intoxicating popularity, and
loss than justice has surely been done
to tho manner in which the great
actress received her plaudits, Ed
