The problem of Chinese im
migration will not be solved until
the American minister returns to
China. The Chinese legation is
not empowered to arrange any
modilidation of the Burlingame
treaty looking towards the restric
tion of Chinese immigration. All
that the legation can do is to rep
resent to the Chinese government
the wishes of the United States in
General Miles, in response to
a question concerning the chances
of an Indian war in the summer,
tays that in case Sitting Bull's
tribe are able to draw out from the
agencies a sufficient number of
young warriors to participate in
their sun-dance, which will take
place in June, there will be trouble
and damage done to settlements;
-buttMij&thev -are unable- "to"
incite hostile feelings among the
agency Indians, everything will
go along smoothly. The meeting
will probably be held on Milk
river, and no outbreak is likely to
occur until after the Indians have
had their dance. General Sher

any trouble this summer, but if it
comes the army will be able to
take care of Sitting Bull and his

A Victoria dispatch says: The
relations of this province with the
Dominion are approaching a crisis
in consequence of the new tariff

The town of Farmington West
Virginia has been infested for some
time past bT a class of people who
have lived in open violation of law
and decency, selling whiskey with
out license, and living in open adul
try. On the 1st a band of thirty men,
supposed to belong to a vigilance com
mittee recentty organized under the
name of Red Men, visited a number
of scandalous places, broke them up,
inflicted the punishment of lashes and
tar and feathers on the inmates, de
stroyed the whiskey, and made a
'general purging of the filth sewer.
A Candid Opinion.
The Phihulelphifi Times is an inde
pendent journal with strong demo
cratic tendencies. It feels mortified
over the attempts being made in
congress to repeal the election laws,
and offers that body some advice. Says
Supervisors are needed at elections.
They are needed to prevent such
frauds as the republicans perpetrated
in Louisiana and Florida in 1S76, and
such as the democrats would perpe
trate in 1SS0, if not restrained by
wholesome laws. -r- The
democratic majority of congress can
not evade the issue. It dare not as
sume ro offer shadows while denying
the substance of judicious restaints
upon election frauds. If it shall do
so, it must be doubly condemned
first for espousing the cause of fraud,
and, second, for attempting to defraud
the country as to its position on the
issue. If it can have no better motive
for integrity in meeting the question,
it should do so, because to do aught
else will be to commit political suicide.
It has but one clear and thornless and
safe path to pursue. It should cordi
alljr accept the position of the presi
dent, as it is declared by his friends,
and meet him manfully and squarely
on his platform. It has nothing to
compromise with revolutionary repub
licans or with Bourbon democrats, or
with anybody else. It must do right
for the sake of the right; or it must
accept the inevitable retribution that
an outraged people will hurl upon it.
