LONE ON LEONG
STAYS IN HIDING
V aluable Chinaman
W arring Tong.
SEVEN MILLION IN
Portland, Ore.—The lone member of
the On Leone tong, who-te body Is be
lieved to be more valuable to a war
ring tong than that of any other
Chinaman in the world. Is staying <-b»e
In his little Fourth street shop these
days. He Is the only known On Leong
He sought seclusion as soon as word
was brought to him of the bloody out
break of the On Leong-Illp S ag tong
war In the East.
He Is repeating his practice of two
years ago when he did not venture out
of his shop for six months.
In the East the On I.eongs are
wealthy but the local man is not—ex
cept to the Hip Sings. At current
prices for the heads of tong officials
the lonely on Leong is worth about
$ 10 , 000 .
He speaks several languages, and
hence Is an Interpreter. For a IIlp
Sing to kill an Interpreter is to win
? 1,200. Hut that is only a beginning.
Being the only man In the chapter,
the <>n Leong must be Its president,
vice president, secretary, treasurer and
lay member. A president dead Is
worth $2,500, a vice president, $2,000;
a secretary, $1,800; a treasurer, $1,500
und a lay member, $I,(**l.
However, It seems unlikely that any
Hip Sing will collect the $10,000. The
Portland chapter Is also poor. The
golden days of the open lottery and
Chinese contract labor are gone.
The Hip Sings also have a substan
tial bond In the Chinese Peace society
which says they will not fight. If they
start anything the bond will l»e for
All these things wnrk'ng together

that they know and trust. (They went
to him In a similar petition at the out
break of the previous war). This was

Peddles Meat for Dogs
in Streets of Berlin
Berlin.— New occupational “ stunts"
are continually being sprung In Ber
lin because o f the ninny unemployed
seeking remunerative activity.
The latest Is the vendor of dog
meat—not the flesh of the ranine hut
meat for the family dog. Such n
peddler has been wheeling Ids cart
through the streets of thickly popu
lated Berlin sections, with a big sign
proclaiming the character of his busi
ness and the merits of Ills goods for
the purpose Intended.
Naturally the cuts are not of prime
quality, hut critical buyers with fns-
tldlous pets are not numerous In the
districts traversed, and the rather
lively business done by this pioneer
seems likely to produce competition.
