MORE CHINESE SMUGGLING.
Tricks 61 the Celestials to Got Into
New Yohk, 20. The actkmsoftbe
cutora-bouso oflcora hero would seem
to Justify the charges of Special Treas
ury Agent Rcharf that there bus been
smuggling of Chinese through the port
of New York. Notwithstanding
Kcharfs protest against the Admission
of six Chinese who arrived from Hava
na Tuesday on the Seneca, one of
whom called himself a merchant and
tho other flvo students, four of them
were admitted by tbo collector because
tbelr passports issued In Havana by the
Chinese consul there, In Mr. Hood
rick's opinion, described the four Chi
nese sufficiently for Identification. The
alleged merchant, Tu Kl Lin, and one
of the students, Cbl Lin, who said be
would be supported by Lee 8ee,,of the
flrm-Lee On & Co., of Mott street,
where he Is not known at all, were de
tained by the collector; the latter be
cause his passport makes him out to be
5 feet and inches blgh,whereas he is 5
feet 6 inches high, and not because of
the false address given. The collector
had not waited to hear Col. Soharf'a re
port on the students or to back bis opin
ion. In tbe meantime tbo special
agent had founa out that all live stu
dents gave tbe addresses of guardians
or supporters In Mott street who had
no knowledge of tbo arrivals. Colonel
Soharfs report about Tu Kl Lin did
not satisfy the collector, who sent to
Providence, R. I., on h'ls own account
and has entirely ignored tbe letter giv
ing him the information which the
Chinese Inspector received from Col
lector Pomeroy of that place, showing
that Tu Kl Lin had given a false ad
dress. The two Chinese detalued will
appear tomorrow in the United States
court On a writ of habeas corpus. In
making Inquiries about the students
who were admitted, two special depu
ties for Colonel Scharf encountered
Chu Fo'ng, proprietor of a Chinese the
ater, who inadvertently made s me
startling discourses. "Why Scharf at
tack? me?" said he. "1 gave him jto.
inuctxitrforrratlon and no say anything
about Lee Fol and Young Luck, who
smuggled in moro than 800 Chinese
last year." These are the two Interpre
ters characterized in Soharfs report to
Secretary Carlisle us smugglers. The
inspector has Chinese letters saying
that these two theatrical manngors are
bringing their countrymen as mem
bers of large local Chinese firms.
"The collector and his dopullea," said
Colonel Scharf, "have not taken tbe
slightest notice of Assistant Secretary
Hamlin's directlon'to aid In the enforce
ment of the Chinese exclusion act. In
stead of help, I have been opposed step
by step, As I am reporting to my su
perior tonight, I have not been informed
of the arrival of ship carrying Chinese,
and even today the Yucatan came here
from Havana wlttf seven, aboard, ac
companied by' this nefarious interpreter
Fol, and I could not have known it
were it not for my special assistants."
Collector Hendricks has taken a rathbr
novel means of defending bis men.
Yesterday he brought out the records of
his department to show just bow many
Chinese had arrived In New York dur
ing the past few years, it being his In
tention to squelch Mr, Scharf with a
solid array of cold figures. To bis as
tonishment, apparently, he found these
records very Incomplete. He announced
that he would get his figures from tbe
Chinese cousul, and with them prove
tbe honesty of bis men. It remains to
be seep whether tbe treasury depart
ment will accept these figures, whose
authenticity can In no way be proved.

ment from England of hops that had
been consigned to that market by tho
Continent. Tho English situation is
rather less complicated, owing to more
favorable weather. Scarcity of Pacific
coast offerings, and limited supplies of
desirable grades generally, should lead
to a renewal of business with England
at an early date. In tbe East, holders
show a firmness under a less promising
outlook as to quantity, although it Is
generally agreed that tho quality will
