Wi: again feel it our duty to refer
to the charges levied upon the Chi
nese immigrants who landed here
during the months of April and May
last, as the facts have never been
clearly placed before the public, anil
publish the following table which
shows the number of men that arriv
ed -"by each vessel, the length of
tjieti detention and their payments :

Madras 21 . '27 20.00 420.00
Total 3370 20.45S.25
The" figures" speak for themselves
and show the elasticity of the
charges. The men by the Oceanic
paid S3 cachj including hospital
tax, for a three days detention, jret
those by the City of Sydney paid
8.50 each during a similar period.
Had the price of rice risen to such
an enormous extent in the interval
between the arrival of these two
vessels that it cost more Hum Five
Dollars A Head extra to provide,
for the City of Sydney men ; and
did the price of rice recede so rapid
ly again before the arrival of the
City of Tokio? The passengers by
the Suez were first told to pay 88.25
each, but the Chinese Union Society,
took the matter in hand, engaged
the services of Mr. Ilartwell, and
the charge was reduced to $3.25,
or by Five Dollars A Head ;
yet those that remained another dajr
were each charged $2 more. A
demur was made by the City of
Sydney men to paying $8.50 each
but they were told to pay it and
they need sign no bond. "What
bond was referred to they never
knew. The Coptic's passengers
were asked to pay $10.50 each, but,
Mr. Ilartwell's services being again
called into requisition, the amount
was reduced to $8.50, while those
who remained another day paid
On 1st May last Mr. Ilartwell
wrote to the Minister of the Interior
giving a detailed statement of the
number of anivals by the five first
mentioned steamers and the charges
made for each and it is' from his
letter that our figures are taken, lie
allowed fifty cents a day for the
board and lodging of each, which
was a liberal allowance, he deducted
the amount of the hospital tax and
asked that the charges be rectified.
The usual official reply was received
that the matter would be attended
to. It never has been attended to.
Deducting the amount of the hospi
tal tax there ia over $20,000 remain
ing, and the whole of this monoy
lias been paid to Government offi
cials, as we stated a few weeks since,
androur statement remains uncon
tradicted. "We also stated on the
authority o"f the Auditor General,
that not one cent had been paid
into the Treasury, and that no ac
count of the receipt or disbursement
of this amount had been submitted
to him. Wc venture to assert that
there is iio other- country in the
world where such a lax state of
things would be permitted to exist,
as to allow a few Government offi
cials to handle a sum of $20,000
without accounting for it in any
way, to the Auditor General. If
there be any valid reason for the
difference in the charges made, then
it can and should be easily explained.
The Attorney-General at the time
said that some of the charges had
tieen made ' by mistake," yet these
incorrect charges have not been
rectified, " bj mistake," probably,
also. It is from the pockets of the
planters that this money comes
eventually, and it is in their interest
that the Bdlletin asks through
whoso hands it has passed, into
whose pockets it has gone, for what
it was received and for what it has
been expended. If the business of
the Government of this country is
properly conducted, there should bo
no delay and no dillicully in an
swering our questions, and submit
ting to the Auditor General the
necessary clear and explicit statement.
The Advertiser has changed
hands. The new owners are Mr.
Edward Maufarlanc, Proprietor of
the San Francisco "Wasp and Mr.
Joseph S. Webb, a former editor of
the Advertiser and at present the
Acting Secretary of the Foreign
Ofllcc. The paper will under the new
regime, adopt an independent policy,
Mr. Gibson aud' Mr. llayseldon
having sold out all their interest.
This noble steamer left punctually
at noon yesterday on her regular
trip to San Francisco. She look a
large number of passengers inclu
ding Colonel Clans Spreckels and
his family. The Colonel invited a
few friends into his cabin lo partake
of a last glass of champagne. His
Excellency W. M. Gibson, Minister
Daggett, Mr. Samuel Parker, Mr.
"Win. Flowcrdew, Mr. John Paty,
the Auditor General, ( with iiis offi
cial pen behind his official car ) and
the Editor af the Bnr.i.rnx wished
the Colonel Aloha mti. Colonel
Spreckels hoped that, on his return,
he would sec them all as well as he
did then. His Excellency the Pre
mier felt assured that such would be
the case as lie considered the in
auguration of the O.S.S. Co's line
of steamers as a matter of sanitary
importance to the Kingdom, enabling
us all to seek a change of air and
recruit ourselves when we needed it.

The meeting of the above com
pany was held yesterday afternoon
in the Armory. There were present
Messrs. P. C. Jones, jr., vice-president,
in the chair; E. P. Adams,

The vice president in opening the
meeting said there had been 3G
meetings of the trustees who had
done all in their power to further
the interests of the company. He
referred to the number of Chinese
that arrived in the spring and to the
expense of the South Sea Islanders
brought on the Hazard.
The minutes of the meeting held
on 8th June and the Secretary's an
nual report were read. He said that
the laborers by the Julia had cost
$111.72 eacli and referred to an in
terview between the planters and
Mr. Gibson with reference to the
Chinese as being ' verbose and inde
finite." Tin' interviews with Hon.
E. E. Tiioruu were touched upon as
well as the dilliculty in making the
Chinese 'ship.' The report was or
dered to be printed.
Mr. Koelin read a paper on the
manufacture of sugar which caused
some discussion and was referred to
a committee. On motion of Hon.
II. M. Whitney it -was decided that'
Mr. Tucker be asked to give an
account of his trip to Jamaica.
Mr. "W. O. Smith referred to a
recent decision of Judge Judd's with
reference to the illegality of minors
signing contracts. The meeting ad
journed till 10 o'clock to-day.
A complaint has been mado to us con
corning the telephone officials by a gen.
tleman who last week in a case of sick,
ness wanted to ring up a relative after
having communicated with the doctor.
The officials rofused to connect until
the gentleman had stated his business.
It may often occur that important rea
sons may, at night, necessitate commu
nication between individuals, and it is
not desirable that the telephone, officials
should demand to know tlio nature of
such business. While it is praise worthy
on their part to wish not to disturb peo
pie's rest, yet, as in the case referred to,
on being assured that communication
was necessary, they fahould apt demand
the nature ot tbo business, j
