.MARCH IS. 16SO
COXGRA TULA TORY.
Portland is to be congratulat
ed. Despite, the assertion of a
panic-stricken journalist of that
city that danger was imminent,
the icsidents of that pleasant in
land burg appear to be enjoying
ordinary safety and arc enabled
to pursue their usual, avocations
with whatever vigor the prevail
ing malaria in fever and ague dis
tricts usually allows unfortunate
dwellers in low and swamp' areas.
The report of the dual meeting
held in that city last Tuesday,
must indeed be a source of satis
faction to every well wisher of the
general peace of the common
wealth, and is a striking exempli
fication of the unanimity of senti
ment that pervades that com
munity. The maj'or had called a meet
ing at two i. at., but so eager
were, some of the citizens to evince
their desire for law and order that
they filled the court room in which
the meeting was to be held by
half past one, and it is alleged
that some of them wanted to be
gin before Judge Smith, who was
holding court, was ready to ad
journ. This delegation appear to
have captured the works, so to
speak, and after organizing hy the
election of a president and secre
tary they passed a series of reso
lutions which for plainness of lan
guage, directness of meaning and
comprehensiveness of intent have
rarely been equaled in modern
Here they are:
Whereas, A petition was circulated
and extensively signed by the business
men of Portland urging ihe boaid of
trade to call a mass meeting of the
citizens to take steps to protect the
peace of the city, and
Whereas, Said board of trade, after
full consideration of the question, re
spectfully referred the petition to
Gov. Moody, and also expressed en
tire confidence in the ability of the
local authorities and state militia to
maintain good order in any emergen
cy, and at the same lime pledging its
members to stand ready to respond lo
any call that might be made on them
at any time for the protection of the
city, and the maintaiuauce of law
and order; and
Whereas. Nothing has occurred
since said action of the board of trade
to diminish confidence in the com
petency of the civil and police author
ities to maintain order and preserve
Resolved, That we the citizens of
Portland in mass meeting assembled.
endorse me aciion 01 ino noaru 01
trade in its expression of confidence
in the competency of the state, coun
ty and municipal authorities to pre
serve the peace of the city, and that
we hereby pledge them our hearty co
operation and support in maintaining
order and enforcing the laws.
Resolved, That we deprecate all at
tempts to incite one clacs of the com
munity against another as inimical to
the peace and good order of the city,
and the only result of which will be
most damaging to its prosperity.
Resolved, That as law-abiding citi
zens we will exert all our personal in
fluence to discountenance and put
down lawlessness of auy and all de
scriptions, and to that end tho state,
county and municipal authorities are
urged to enforce all the laws and or
dinances of the city in letter and spir
it, irrespective of persons, occupation
Resolved, That the presence of the
Chinese in our state is an unmixed
and nnmitigated evil, and we pledge
ourselves to use all lawful means to
rid ourselves of the same, and for the
furtherance of that end, wo will not
give employment lo any Chiuam-m in
any capacity whatever.
In the meantime another dele
gation, equally determined to show
llieir zeal for good order butSina
bla to squeeze into the densely
packed court room, adopted the
clever plan of having a meeting of
their own. The accordingly met
in the judge's room, regularly or
ganized and passed another series
of resolutions, equally worthy of
Here the' are:
Whereas. Many unlawful and riot
ous nets havo of late been committed
in this city and vicinity by persons
unknown, but supposed to bo chiefly
incited bv non-residents, by forcibly
driving inoffensive and defenseless
Chinese laborers from their humble
homes and avocations, rendering
them homeless and preventing them
from working for a livelihood, there
by compelling them to become either
criminals, a public charge or starve;
Whereas, Threats aro openly in
dulged in, to continue such outrages
id violation of law and order, in vio
laticn of sacred treaty obligations en
tered into by our government, and in
jL violation of all laws, both human and
9 divine; and
4 Wxxmas, The citizens of Portland,
mindful of the fair fame of their city
and proud of its hitherto good repute
for peace, observauce for law and
good order, viewing with alarm the
probability that riot and disorder,
sbamo and disgrace will surely follow
if the said threats be executed and
such unlawful conduct be persisted
in, thus tarnishing the hitherto un
blemished history of our town, deem
it now our sacred duty to rise in our
might and declare earnestly and em
phatically that we will not suffer this
state of affairs to continue; we de
clare that it has ceased to be a ques
tion whether the Chinese aro a desir
able population or not, (and we "be
lieve that it is the sentiment of this
community that they are nolj; but it
hasjjecome a question whether law
ancTorder shall prevail and govern
this community, or whether we will
allow irresponsible persons to bring
shame and disgrace, riot and anarchy
Resolved by (he citizens of Roi t
land in mass meeting assembled,
That it is our duty to uphold law and
order in this community and that we
will sustain and aid the legal author
ities in maintaining the same: that
wo will maintain and sustain the fun
damental principles of liberty and
humanity as adopted by the found
ers of the republic; that man has an
inalienable right to life, liberty and
the pursuit of happiness, and that
these aro inherent rights of which
no one can unlawfully be deprived:
and that we will not allow any oiieto
be prevented through violence or in
timidation from working for a livli
hood, or be driven from hone or
home, and we pledge our means and
if necessary our lives to uphold these
principles; and that wc will do all in
our power to bring condimi punish
ment on any and all who may be
found engaged in riotous and unlaw
Resolved, That the chairman of
this meeting appoint a committee of
fifteen whose duty it shall be to con
sult with the proper authorities and
adopt such lawful measures as they
may deem advisable under the cir
cumstances, to the end that peace
and good order prevail.
Here wc have the pleasant spec
tacle of a populace unanimous in
their determination lo put down
lawlessness awl to lnnko il hot for
disturbeis of the peace. The only
question that arises is il every one
is detei mined lo squelch lawless
ness, what is the probability of
there being' any lawlessness?
