Poktlas'd, March 13, 1880.
To the Editor of the Ohegosiax:
You and I huvn been neighbors and
friends for ahout twenty yearn. We are
still such and I hope we mny remain
such for the remcinder of our lives.
All thul wo lioth h'nvo was mnde
and in now invented in Portland, and
we ought, therefore, upon every ques
tion ntlecting Portland and Oregon to
advise (hut which wo think to Im thti
le-,t. If, howevr, we should Imppeii
to dilH-r (us we often Ho) it ih no reason
I should ahuse you or you should aliuse
me. We ought, in discussing quehCions
iiffi'cting public interest to treat each
other respectfully and fairly. I have
can fully read what you liuvn had to
day on this Cliiii'-sii question and
all hough I liav very materially (iilTer-
ci with you on every point, except
lien you have urged a coinpiianoe
with, and an enforcement of the. Iiw,
I have held my pacH until now. Dut
now when you have come noldly out
and have demanded, as I read it, in
plain and uiiiuistnkahlo terma tlio for
mation of a vigilance committee, which
is nothing else in the world hnt a
measure of ouilawry.it is high lime that
and every other luwahullng citizen of
Portland should most HolemnW protest
against it why should a vigilance
committee I formed Are the courts
of Justice oUtru'jtedt lias the Shenll
. - . - j.
1 serving the procriweM ot Hie courts
been resisted? Ihe court are unpn
struoted and the ollicers ot tlie Jaw
hove not-, in ono singlo Instance, met
with resistance, Ihen why this appeal
to molt law, for a vigilance committee
is nothini! chin in the world than a well
organized nio'i. Is i' for the purpose
of hanging two or three men without
judge or jury, for th" sake of intimidat
irg others? This Would l simply
murder, and nothing else. The con
dition of affairs that now exist ih and
about Portland is most deplorable in
deed HoMYcls'of lawless midnight nift
rauilrs nre abroad, ind now it' i.i
deliberately proposed to organize
iinother lawless band to nppbne them.
This is a sad state of allairs. How
much better they manage this thing in
California. Them last week a state
convention was held, composed in part
of the best citizens of the state, and a
united resolve was mado to use every
Uwful effort toward the removal of the
Chinese from the state, and one of the
means to le employed was the hoy
oottinir of the Chinese. This measure
is perfectly lawful, expedient, practi
cal, justifiable and elective. v ny tiu
not the people of Portland and Oregon
pursue the same policy Why are they
not acting qnitedly on this question, as
are the people of California? In that
state tlie leading men joined the anti-
:nolie movnneiits, mid the leading
papers espoused its cauce. Jioth men
and papers there pursued the same
course that John Myers ami the News
have endeavored to pursue here. 1 hey
used their influence in keeping the
movement within the hounds of the
law. II the Oregmrian had also put-
sued the same course we undoubtedly
would have united action :rf this stale
is lias heen hod in California, and the
organization could now he doing eflec
live work in a lawful way in removin
the curse 6f ChinesH slavery from the
soil of Oregon. Dut the Oregouian
saw fit to otioose the movement from
tlie start,' and to belittle those who en
niL'pd in it, Tins has euibitteieJ Kiune
and has had a leniency to drie them
to extreme measures, mid the result lias
leen the engendering of feeling lietween
neighbors who diner on this question,
the ein'ioldeningof the Chinese anil the
curri g of weapons ly Ik h pirtii,
and by the Chinese also, so liar, wiih
i Iiw lad blooil tlilit is aroused, and the
carrying of weapons, we are really

Ymj and I must agree to the fact
that the pn-senee of the Chims here in
Orimn is an unmitigated evil. Put-
tincr the avefawe of the t u n's-r of

Have they built any homes, school

the moneyf It has all gone to China,
and, so far as we are concerned, it
might as well have been dumped
into tliH sea. Now, suppose the Chin

that all this money had been paid to

itanU Hie extent of the material ami
moral curse of this Chinese slave
labor on the Pacilio coast chii not be
fully computed in figures nor ainpfy
portrayed in words. You and I, bo(h
of us, through our own exertionR, and
by the blessings of God, have f.ecured
enough so that we are not compelled
to work at manual1 labor for our living.
We have a little something to leave to
our children, but we all know that
riches are very uncertain. Ihey Very
often (ake to themselves wings and tly
away. It may he possible that our
children may so.ne day have to w'ork at
manual labor for their daily bread. Do
you want to leave your children in a
country where, if that contingency
comes, they will have to compete for
their daily hread with coolie tlaves
No,' never. We, both of us, if we pos
itively knew that such a fate was in
store for oiir1 children, no matter how
much we love them, had much rather
Is-ar them to their graves and see the
earth close over them forever. And
feeling so, must we not, both of us,
have some sympathy with the tailoring
men w ho are now among us, with noth
ing in the world hut their hands to de
pend upon for1 a living", and some of
them' witli' families to feed, and whof
now on J here,' have to compete with
these same coolie slaves' for their daily
bread And is there one single man in'
this community, who has to employ
'labor, that would turn a deaf ear to
free meii'of his own blood and race for
the sake of a mere saving of a small
difference In wages hire these alien
slaves If there hn, such men' they
should hide their heads for very shame.
The people of Portland have now be
come divided into two distinct parties
t he anti-Chinese and the pro. Chines
The people of Oregon, like the people
of Californij.'Bhould le aunit on this
Chinese question. I hero should be no
rest until this curse is removed. I5ut
it should lie removed by and through
the law. There is an irrepressible con
flict lictween'freo labor and slave labor
that never Will and" never ought to
cease. This" Pacitio coast cannot re
main peaceable Inlf white and half
Chinese. Hie Chinese must go, and
thev ou-'ht' to co.' Hut no methods
but lawful method' ought to he em
ployed. The states" of California and
Oregon,' in their state capacity, have
never done towards the removal of the
Chinese what they might have done,
anf oul'IiI to have done, bf tlib lawful

exercise of their plenary reserved ponce
powers. The Chinese should be evictad
by law, not in defiance of law; and un
til we have such leual remedies our
only recourse is to refuse to give them
emnlovmeut. In this we should all
auree. And u an classes oi our com
uiunity should agree to this, there is no
doubt that the anti-collie associations
would join with us in ferreting out and
punishing all persons who would resort
to lawless methods, fly suth a course
onacs instead of discord would reign in
nor n. iilst. As I irohib v w ill not be
at the meeting called for to-morrow
T will suggest here the resolutions
which I think ought to Imb adopted at
1. That the existence of Uhinee
slave labor is an unmixed and unmiti
gated evil and we pludge ourselves,
sing y and unitedly, to do all in our
newer, bv all peaceful and lawful
means, to gel rid of these alien aerfi
and that to that end we will not give
employment in any capacity to any
these coolie slave's.
2. That we respectfully entreat our
fellow citizens of the Anti-Coolie Asso
ciation of this city, to unite with us
tireservinff the peace and in discounte
nancing all lawless methods and pro
cesses for the eviction of the Chinese,
Miffing as wo do, that by refusing to
