Chinese Cases. The spectacle of 234
Chinamen, each dressed in the national
costume of black pants, blue blouse, and
black hat, standing on Benton street and
gazing at the court-house yesterday, was
occasioned by two suits in progress of
trial therein, in which Chinese were
plaintiffs and defendants. The services
of the entire force were required; a spe
cial bailiff was appointed to prevent the
steaming crowd from invading the sacred
precincts of the inner temple, six law
yers, two interpreters, a basket of chick
ens, twelve jurymen, sundry bundles of
red and yellow paper, were among the ad
juncts of the scone. As each witness
gave his or her testimony all due formal
ity was observed, and the glittering knife
that decapitated the hapless fowls who
squawked dismally, fell with a dull thud
as the attendant demon burned the pa
pers and the witness called on :J7 Chinese
gods to witness the truth of his asser
tions. Chickens are scarce and dear in
Astoria, and it was with mingled feelings
of alarm and regret that several Cau
casians saw the mthless slaughter of
poultry as deodands to justice. If niany
more Chinese cases come up the price of
chickens will materially advance. The
point in dispute was a certain or uncer
tain promissory note, and requires some
time yet to decide.

TTLLARD'S YAXISnED F0BTU5E.
Richex that Tool TVIni: and Fleir AnaT.
From New York comes the news that
the resignation of Villard was positively
presented yesterdaj to the meeting of tho
Northern Pacific stockholders. There is
a gi owing feeling of sympathy for Vil
lard. Many of those who lost heavily by
his management still maintain their be
lief in his management. From several
authoritative sources, says tho World,
we are enabled to state what Yillard'a
condition is, financially and physically,
as viewed by those who take tnomost
generous view of his acts. It is said by
these that Villard is a poor man; that
the fortune he created in so short a time
has crumbled to dust: that ho does not
even own the house in which he lives,
and that the 500,000 he settled on his
wife has disappeared also. Villard, they
sav is an honest man, and has not created
a fortune out of his friends, and that his
great losses, coupled with the great fall
he has had in public estimation, have
completely shattered him. He is actually
dazed at his position, and is far from his
former self. Villard, they say, a3 an ex
planation of his fall, is a visionary man,
and his enthusiasm ran away with his
judgment. This is the favorable view of
Villard, and it is unnecessary to say there
is a darker construction of his character
and financial career. Villard himself
maintains that ho has lost his all.
The Herald says: "We print an inter
view with a friend of Henry Villard con
cerning the relation of that gentleman to
tho Northern Pacific and its kindred cor
porations, and concerning Villard's
health and private fortune, which will be
read with great interest, and, we believe,
with great sympathy.
The fact that the'reporter was referred
by Villard to this gentleman for an au
thoritative statement gives the report an
air of truthfulness, iollowing are pas
sages from tho interview:
"Villard is ruined in his private for
tune. He has not as much money to his
name to-day as you have. AH has gone
to help the great enterprises he has been
at the head of. There can be no question
of his conscientiousness or integrity,
for he has voluntarily sacrificed
his private means to support the North
ern Pacific. Ho has nothing left abso
lutely nothing. His stocks, bonds, two
residences, all are involved in the wreck
Ho has saved nothing. Ho never was so
rich as reported. He was not worth $10,
000,000. Five was nearer the figure."
"Did the conversation with Billing3
take place, as reported?"'
"Yes. Last Sunday Billings called to
see Villard. Billings, you know, had
quarreled with Villard, and there was
some ill felling between them. "When
Billiug3 called and found him sick in
bed, and learned that Villard had im
poverished himself in his efforts to sup
port tho company, Billings expressed en
tiro belief in Villard's integrity, and
there was a scene of reconciliation be
tween tho two. "When tho rascals in
"Wall street made their combined attack
on the street, Villard was straining every
nerve to preserve the company's credit,
and began to sacrifice his own money.
To make matters worse he was away
from the city, and had to do business by
telegraph. A certain banking firm was
in difficulty, and would have failed if he
had not come to its rescue by raising
money on bonds jnd property belonging
to him. So he has gone on," giving his
own money away, until everything he
owns is pledged. But there is one source
of strain upon him which I have not
mentioned. Money has been trusted in
to his hands to invest for other people.
All financial men know what that ex-
Eerience is. His friends would insist on
aving him invest their savings. "When
the stock went down such was Villard's
sense of honor that I have known him,
many a time, to put his hand into his
own pocket and purchase stock to save
them from depreciation. I suppose he
has lost $1,000,000 in this way."
"Has Villard resigned the presidency?"
"His resignation is in the hands of tho
