set to work in ignorance of their
duties, and very many of them were
ignorant of a great many other
things besides, as they were appointed upon party grounds, and
not from any qualifications possessed by themselves for the discharge of the duties appertaining
to the position. The department
has, therefore, had considerable
trouble arising through their want
of capacity, and officious and unwarranted action in many cases,
and from otlier causes. The payments being made by fee has apparently acted as an inducement to
many of these inspectors to be officious interfering. The Hon. Mr.

Scheme to Land Chinese.
Probably the most gigantic
scheme ever evolved to elicit the
government has jnst come to lighl
in San Francisco. It is nothing
less thin (he wholesale illegal landing of Chinese men and women.
Jt is proposed and in pan undertaken to fraudulently land 250 Celestials at thai porl during the next
twelve months. For (bis service
several prominent Chinese linns
agree to pay $100 a head for the
men and $100 for.every woman
who successfully passes the vigilance of Collector Wise's inspectors.
Nor is this all. If the scheme works
well from the start it is proposed to
gradually extend operations nniil
the whole customs force is involved.
In other words, the smooth dealing

Chinese, Chin \Vah Maw by name,
with more nerve than cuteness, approached a gentleman high in Federal circles with :i proposition to
make, a.- he expressed it, " Big
money.'' "Il is just like finding it
in the road," warbled the Chinese,
nnd then, dropping back into pigeon
English, added: '-Vou tix-um certificate; makee heap big money."
The official, however, did md take
kindly io the proposition, though
he appeared to. Chin With was requested to call later in the dav.
when he would be placed in a wav
to accomplish the purpose nearest
his heart. Accordingly al llie appointed hour Maw appeared and
was then introduced to a gentleman as the ''one person in all San
Francisco who could arrange the
matter." lie was supposed lo be
close to the inspectors, and, consequently, would have no trouble in
landing as many Chinese men and
women as local parlies might lind
themselves in a position to pay lor.
Chin Wall Maw, highly elated al
the success of his scheme, then arranged for a meeting between the
man who professed lo be able to
land Chinese galore and the men
who expected to put up the coin.
Lust Thursday night a week ago
the first meeting occurred at the
store of Mow Tuck & Co., successors
to Shew Ching Teong & Co., 710
Commercial street, tin this omission only the formalities of the
scheme were discussed, but everybody appeared to be perfectly satisfied wilh the situation, On the
night following another conference
took place, when all the detail- of
the plot were gone over, ll was
agreed to hind 260 Chinese, the
sum of $100 lo I"' paid for every
man and $400 for every woman.
Then it was the Chinese showed
their complete familiarity with the
situation. They wanted lo know
of the white agent if the pictures
should be made in China, or would
lie see to that at Ibis end. They
were also anxious to secure certificates of registration and were willing to pay a littlo extra for the accommodation, ll was further agreed
thai no money was to be paid until
the Chinese were actually landed,
but in tho meantime lhe coin was
to be placed in the hands of Mow
Tuck it Co., payable to ihe white
agent thirty days after lhe arrival
of a China steamer, it being understood of course that no money would
be paid for such Chinese as failed
to land.

This letter was sent on lhe steamer
Gaelic and should lie Hearing its
destination by this time. It is quite
likely, therefore, that on her return
trip the Gaelic will have three passengers who expeel to land at the
port of Han Francisco. That they
will be disappointed goes without
saying. The scheme has been laid
before Collector Wise, and tbo local
Chinese have been made to feel
this. They will be out the passage
money of their cousins from over
the sen, though Ihey are probably
thankful at being able to escape so
casilv.    There is no law to hi a
conspiracy of this character. An
overt act must be committed before
legal proceeding can be  instituted.

inger, "tint the Chinese exclusion

just such cases us this. An attempt
to corrupt a federal officer should

without reservation iiml this present attempt al corruption is the
mosl audacious of which I have any

evidently been in the same business

true remedy for uli nervous troubles.
