A CA18SON ACCIDKNT. A WRIT OF ERROR TO BE TAKEN. Men Butler Says They Were Imprisoned Without Due Process of law-l^ecleral Officers After a Florida Mayor AVIio Has Run Things with a High Hand. Chicago, May 15.-Preparations have been made to attempt to secure the release from the pen of the convicted Anarchists, Fielden, Schwab and Neebe, by a method heretofore not hinted at in the case. In a short time an application will be made to Judge Gresham for a writ of habniis corpus, on the ground that the prisoners are detained without due process of law. No less an authority than Benjamin F. Butler says that the effort will almost beyond doubt be successful, the opinion being based on the expressions of the United States supreme court in the proceedings heretofore brought before that body. Butler is a regularly retained associate counselor in the case. The anarchists' lawyers say the writ of habeas corpxis will be asked for on the ground that after the sentence of death was passed upon the condemned anarchists, and Neebe was doomed to spend fifteen years in the penitentiary, the case was appealed to the supreme court, where the finding of the lower court, with the sentence of death for Spies, Parsons, Lingg, Fischer, Eugel, Schawb and Fielden, was afiBrnied. The prisoners were not taken before the suprejne coixrt to hear this aflarmation of their sentence, and their lawyers were not even notified to be present. The claim was made that this was a breach of their constitutional rights and that the Constitution says that a sentence of death rendered in the absence of the prisoners was not due process of law. Gen. Butler writes imder date of May 10th: After giving sulTloient oxarainatiou to the record in tlio ciiso of Fielden, I biive come fully to lliu conclusion that such action is er-roneons, in tliat it was au attempt to take his life without duo jiroucss of law. I therefore advise very "strongly your taking a writ of error to have such proceodure corrected by the Judgment of the supremo court of the United States, if any technical objections are miulo to the circuit court, for a writ of habeas corpus for I'ielden, because under that writ the facts, as well as the law, can be discussed, and forms are of no consequence w^ien they stand in the way of due course of .justice. Of couree, tUo decisions of tJioso questions relieve any of his fellows wjio are sulTerlng from the same errors, it decided, as I b'jlieve they must be, Bavo the men wliose lives have been taken without due jirooess of law!

Quebec, May 15.-The Allan line steamer Parisian, which anived here fi-om Liverpool, narrowly escaped a wreck oS the banks of Newfoundland by running upon an iceberg.

THE TRAFFIC IS PBOFITAULE And Heavy Capital Is llehind It-Treaties witli Mexico and Canada Necessary to Secure Exclusion of tlie Clilncse-The Day In Congress. Washinoton, May 15.-The secretai-y of tlie treasury sent to the senate a report of Datus F. Coon, Chinese inspector of the department at San Francisco, dated April 21; Mr. Coon writes that the Chinese are coming into the United States despite the effort of the customs officers to keep them out. The arrests made last month, he thinks, had a salutary effect in checking the traffic. Twenty-six Chinamen are now in custody, and the Portuguese captain of the schooner Benecia Boy is in jail for having brought ten Chinamen within the United States unlawfully. One of the Chinese employers of the captain has been arrested on the captain's confession and the other is being pursued. Thirty complaints were filed by Mr. Coon with the United States commissioner during the month. Mr. Coon thinks the present force entirely inade- quate to prevent the smuggling wliichis ! Mexican border. The ig on over the _ _______ ____ jtt act, he says, is practically a failure, because while a Chinaman is under arrest he is able to make arrangements with his friends to bring him in again and take him to some other town, where be will not be known. A I'rofitaltle liusiness. The smuggling of Chinamen is very profitable and has heavy capital behind it. The price paid in China for each Chinaman safely landed in the United States is $140. The order of the secretary of the treasury prohibiting the transfer of Chinamen in transit at San Francisco, Mr. Coon says, was most fortunate and will check the traffic for a time. But as Canada is too cold and Mexico too poor for the Chinaman, he thinks some other method of getting in will be found. Unless treaties on the subject are made with gi-eat Britain and Mexico, he thinks the exclusion of the Chinese will be very difficxilt. Mr. Coon thinks the bills which provide for the return of the Chinaman to the country from which he was smuggled in are defective. He thinks this provision ex-penjsiye and useless. He thinks the Chinainan, after trial, should be returned to his own country with the threat that if found in America again he will be imprisoned for a long term. He thinl�s also that a xihotograph should be given vnth each Cliinese certificate. CONCiBKSSlONAl, I'ROCEEDISTGS. Dashed Into an Open .Switch.
