A PKOTEST FBOM CHINA, THE TREATMENT OF CHINESE AT BUTTE OCCASIONS A KICK. of tho City Snitl to lie Out- ritgtMittsly Trentoil —Secretary Blaino'a Attention Called to the Matter—lle- ferr«d to Oovertior Toole. TO OVERTHROW D1A2, I HELENA, Mont., Feb. 14.— P'nug Kwang Yu, Chinese charge ad interim at, Washington, has complained to tho secretary oi' state of the treatment of Chinese residents of Butte, and the matter was referred by Mr. Blaine to Governor Toole. For some time a boycott has been in force in Butte against tlie Chinese and all who employ them, aud the information upon which the complaint is made comes from the Chinese consxil general at San Francisco. It is that various citizens of Butte "have been obstructing in their lawful business and outrageously treating the Chinese subjects resident in that place. In November last various labor unions of Butte City passed a regulation prohibiting the people in the said city against trading and- dealing with tho Chinese subjects resident there, and at the same time placed guards at the front of the Chinese stores to arrest and I'unlHh Any Native who should be found to infringe the regulations. Subsequently the labor union forbade the native landlords to hire any more of their houses to the Chinese, and ordered them to raise the rents of the houses already tenanted by them. They further required the Chinese laundrymen to register their names and attempted to extort from them $10 each for the same. Upon their refusal to comply with their demands the lawless people fired at them and assaulted some of them about the head with their pistols, so grievously wounding them that their lives were imperiled." The newspapers of Butte have published isolated cases of outrage upon China- men by hoodlums, but it is not creditable that they were instituted by the reputable citizens of that place. A few days ago a burly rough in Butte assaulted a Celestial on one of the main streets, knocking him down and cruelly beating him, Knocking Him Through a 'Window then dragging him out again across the broken glass. Wednesday night Ah Sam, a suburban labndryman, and his crew came to Butte to participate in the new year's festivities aud left the wash house unguarded and when they returned the establishment was a total wreck. It had been visited by a gang of boys and men and bombarded so effectively that the doors and furniture were smashed and the clothes scattered and ruined. Dixring the proceedings a large crowd of lookers on cheered the work of destruction and announced that the Chinese must go, perceably if they would, but go they must. The laboring men of Butte are circulating a memorial to congress in which they say: "Your petitioners, representing the wage workers of the state, are especially and vitally concerned for tha prompt solution of this most important question. The immigrants are forced upon iis iu great multitudes. The situation is alarming. We are being deprived of the opportunity to earn our daily bread. The conditions are too hard to be patiently withstood. We therefore pray your honorable body to give us prompt relief by the enactment of laws clearly designated to restrict immigration and exclude Chinese."

Ho pays the revolutionary movement there i.$ b;uMdl by the lower class to a man, and while they are disorganised and poorly equipped for war, they are gathering iu numbers gradually, and becoming stronger in arms daily and in several instances have already rebelled agniusfc the government and won a victory or two against tho federal troops. The movement is urged on by the priests, who hope to overthrow the present government and resurrect the constitution of 1872. A priest, at Tainochi, claiming to be a saint lias complete control over the Indians for miles around. People have nocked to Tetnochi by hundreds, and urged on by tlie priest declared themselves against the government, and so serious did Diaz consider the movement soldiers were sent over from Guerrero to capture the leaders and disarm the people. The first detachment, of troops entered Ternochi without resistance, but soon fell under the influence of the priest and joined the revolutionary forces. A second detachment was sent, and upon arriving at the town were met by the revolutionists and a bloody battle was fought, in which twenty regulars and Nin» Kobola \Ver« Killed. and many wounded on either side. The troops succeeded in capturing the town, but the rebels escaped to Sonora, robbing and plundering along the route. Following closely upon this another battle was fought at Los Almas, in which the revolutionists came out victorious and without the loss of a man. Eight federal soldiers and their commandant were killed and arms and ammunition captured and distributed among the revolutionists, who, up to the time of the departure of tho miner mentioned above, still held possession of the town. The news of this victory spread rapidly and encouraged others to join the revolution. From every pass in tho mountains swarmed men eager to join in the movement, until the federal soldiers surrounded the town and permitted no one to enter. A few days later the federals and revolutionists had a skirmish at Yeckery, in which three of tha latter were killed and a number captured. The loss to the government troops is unknown, but it is thought to be larger than that sustained by the rebels, who were fortified in adobe buildings, and had the advantage of position. People are gathering in all the little towns and giving thfi government a great deal of trouble in dispersing them. Hundreds congregated at Neria before the federal troops arrived, but being poorly armed made no re.'siat- ance and were held prisoners for two days in the plaza and then released and ordered to return home.

Feb. 12, — Eight new cases of typhus fever hwve been discovered id varictii parts of this ci(;y since 1 a. in. Friday morning, thus making, with the 57 cases unearthed Thursday, 6,'i cases in all. The victims are all or nearly all Jews, both. Russian and Polish, who ro- cently arrived here on the steamship Massila from Marseilles, and who on landing, although the ship was said to be infected, found sleeping accommodation in some of the • lowest tenement hoxtses on the East Side. All the victims have been removed to .North Brother Island, and the places they were token from carefully fumigated and quaraii • tined, a black flag being floated from a uhort distance on each side of the house in which the pestilence was situated. The hospital on North Brother island in filled to its utmost capacity, and the physicians there will erect a lame wooden pavillion to accommodate a large number of patients. Mr. Edison, of the health board, said to a United Press re porter: "The plague is by no means ended. We acted promptly and on the first suspicions, but you see how many had been scattered around and had already come in contact with many other persons, and you may look for new cases hourly. I have ordered fresh squads of men to do duty on the case. We have seen nothing like it in years." President Wilson, of the health department, said: "We have located all of the i!80 Hebrews who came here in the Massilia and have all the houses where they lodge quarantined. We know of about 200 Russian Hebrews who have come in contact with the known victims and who have lately left the city. We are now busy tracing them up. The Italians, too, who came on the Massilia, have been in a great measure located. ,Sev«M>ty-six In All. .

Mur- tlev«f Kscapes tho Gullows. HENDERSON, Minn., Feb. 13.—Judge Cadwell has denied tho motion for a new trial in the case of James O'Neil, who was convicted of murder in tho first degree last December for the killing of Michael Collins, while in an altercation over a well. After the denial of a new trial, followed by a short plea for mercy by the defendant's counsel, Cy Wellington, Judge Cadwell commuted the penalty oi : hanging to imprisonment for lii ? e at hard labor in the penitentiary. When the prisoner was asked what he had to say for himself, and whether he was sorry for what he did, he responded that he was, but it was too late now, whereupon the judge sentenced him as above stated, giving as a reason for commuting the sentence that the defendant was unduly excited at the time of the shooting. The scene was a very stirring one, the judge himself being very much effected, as were also many others in the court room. The action of the court meets with satisfaction. An almost universal opinion prevailed that the prisoner would have to hang. O'Neil's own testimony on the trial was in substance that he had deliberately and without warning, shot the deceased Collins. His own testimony was regarded the strongest evidence for conviction. The case excited much interest, and has cost Sibley county $3,500. THE WORST IS KNOWN. AJl tlir. Bodies of tbe Hotel Uoyul Victims UwIieveJ to Have Been Kocoverod. NEW YORK, Feb. 10.—The worst iu regard to the Hotel Royal fire is now believed to be known. Seventeen persons in all, eleven women and six men, is the sum total of the dead.

DULUTH, Feb. la.—United States interior department special agents who have investigated tho matter are of the opinion that the Indians of the Fond du Lac reservation,near here, have been shamefully abused. Their reservation is some twelve miles square, and lies between the lines of the Duluth aud Winnipeg and Northern Pacific railroads, with the Duluth, Mesaba raid Northern running into it at one point. It was originally exceedingly rich in a very high grade of pine and cedar timber; in fact, was selected by the redskins on account of its timber value. They have not been allowed by the government to cut any but burned, dead a7id fallen timber, which they were to take out and dispose oi: to tho lumber companies operating close by. Their land should, therefore, ba covered by a splendid .growth of line pine. Stol» «0,OOO,0(U> t-'aet, As a matter of fact, the government agents find it nearly depleted. One agent alone has minutes of 00,000,000 feet of pine that has been cut off without apparently so much as a cent of payment to the rightful owners. Once or t\vic» before this tho jj;ovei-maent, on the report of the interior department, has compelled illegal choppers to make restitution, and now it has made a wholesale seizure, has branded some 6,000,000 feet of logs and tens of thousands of telegraph poles, cedar posts and railway ties— for the robbers took everything clean— with the stamp "U. S.," aud in two weeks will offer tho lot for sale here." It will probably be all bid in by the very people who did the chopping, and who will thus bo able to secure the timber at si less price than they would have to pay if bought in the first pluse. It is probable that three-fourths of the timber of the Fond du Lac reservation has already baen stolen and cut off. An Staled by l'ru«l<l«»t Hill. SPOKANE, Wash., Feb. 12.—J. J.

A Jfuw EU'Ctricul Torpedo Succes§fti!iy VGKt.etl in I'tirlamontU Harbor. LONDON, Feb. 10.—There was an interesting and succeesful test in Portsmouth harbor of the new Sinis-Edison electrical torpedo. The trial took place under the direction of the admiralty officials, and representatives of most of the European powers were present.

Mr. Sims personally operated the torpedo. Ic was sent out a distance of a mile and a quarter, and was under such perfect control that the manipulator turned it at will in any direction while tho Drudge was steaming rapidly along- more than a mile a-\vay.
