TTNDEIR THE VERANDAH.
(By Hush Kal.)
It Is surprising how all the charac
teristics of Celeotlal life are displayed
among our local Chinese population,
small as It Is, and It 1s also a matter
of comment to the observer tow our
plg'tiolled brethren ape, nd sometimes
enlarge .on, the manners Ithat distin
guish their Caucasian surroundings.
Take, for Instance, the vanity we call
pnSde, caste, society, and the like.
There are a great many old residents
among us who have always considered
the locality opposite the north side
of tho postofnee as a hotbed of coolie
life, where all Hve together In damo-
craltlo unfty, surrounded till the crack
of doom by a very apparent odor of de
cayed vegetables and opium. But. bar
rlng"the odor (which Is'strong enough
to take care of hsolf, and needs no de
nial) this is not the case. The differ
ent degrees of social life are vert
strongly marked In our Chinatown, ani
I have often noticed with amusement
how plainly the trait shows Itself, On
the lowest rung of all stands that
ubiquitous gentleman the will China
man. He is divided into two classes,
the swill Chinaman from choice, and
the swill Chinaman from necessity,
the latter being a market gardener
who, possessing a discriminating ey
for the exact quality of swill moat

suited to his purposes, prefers to do
the work himself rather than entrust
it to a menial. The expert bows to
the common selector, and renerally
passes the time of day Witlh Wm when
they' meet at neighboring coal oil cans.
Next on the social ladder, end proba
bly the best known to our housewives
comes the "fruit John," otherwise
known as the Vegetable Chinaman.
He recognizes the will Chinaman by
a grave nodi when they meet and very
seldom troubles to give any other re
sponse to the latter' hearty "goon
morning." He himself Is snubbed a
little further on when he proceeds up
Chinatown with his baskets and passes
through crowds of "contract men."
taking the air In front of the various
stores., These represent the next
grade. They are day laborer living
and boarding with various merchants
till they are packed off to work by
contract In Alaska or elsewhere andi
redeem Uhelr board money. They only
notice their bumble brother who vend
vegetables, by barely concealed sneers
and various remalrka jcalcuHabedi to
moke him blush. Then we can watch
how they in. turn cringe and make
way from the doorsteps when the book
keeper of some store approaches. He
gets lots of open homage, being the
sole resort of the contract man when
he wants a few cents on account for
opium or some other delectable com
modity, The bookkeeper too 1 respon
sible for their good behavior, and nev
er refrains from lashing with, his
quick tongue some unfortunate who
has helped himself too much to the
tea, or broken a pane. of. glass when
taking down a door shutter. But the
bookkeeper himself, Seared as he is,
also comes under the lash of this so
cial system, when he meet the eye
of his employer, the portly merchant
"The old man" (they call their boss
"the old man" In Chinatown just the
same way as moat of the clerk do in
the other parts of town) never deigns
to know anybody but the1 merchants
who stand on the same grade of re
spectability and wear clothe of as
good quality a himself. He keeps an
eye on his bookkeeper, and never lets
a slip go by without reprimand. This
lordly individual know only one per
sonage in town that he' can" kow-toy
to without losing bis -dignity. H js

wthobe fabric, from' retired ' merchant
down to swill coolie, bowing i to th
ground before his most noble highness
the occasional distinguished Chines
visitor from Portland or Ban Francis
es. Here Is positively the latest. The
proprietor of the Astorlan ha been
given an Ironclad guarantee that It It
hurt the paper financially he will not
puill out a loser. Last night a well
known Irish genius was dining in the
Occident at the table next to Ham
mond and the rest ot the "railroad-'
ers." The polite waiter approached
him as he took hi seat and, gliding up
to his elbow yelled as usual "Wattleeu
have ternlght sir? The Wlroffare Is
beefsteak, mutton chops, ham and
eggs." "Hammond eggs?" replied the
Irlrihman, "ahure thlm must be the
kolrwt that hatches railroads." Stan
ton fainted and had to be carried nut
Into the air.
I see that the milkmen of Astoria,
or some of them, are talking of form
ing a combine "to protect themselves
against people who don't pay their
milk blWs." A couple of new purvey
ors of milk have come to town, how
ever, and have started cutting rate.
This, it seems to me, Is the meaning
of such a sudden desire for a combine,
and It Is a little bit mean, to say the
learit, for the .milkmen to try and
cover up the real reason for their con
duct, which the public are sure to get
onto sooner or later. In this direction
as well as oMhers, new method are
oomlng In with the railroad, and peo
ple will no longer tolerate a milk ser
vice with filthy cans, when they can
turn to newcomer and get both de
cent goods and decent delivery. Some
of our milkmen, of course, don't come
under thto category, but one or two
of them do.
