An invention that has been sought,"
but with indiffeient success, lo, these
many years, in various couniiie,
has to all appearances been hit upon
in Honolulu. Jn every huge town
where inanufaci uves are carried on,
what is known as the "smoke nui

to the public, one of its fruils being
vexatious lUigption. April foni is

gives promise of being the long
souglit boon. He calls it a hol-uir
biirige wall, and has applied it to
the furnaces of the steamships Kinau
and Likelike. The essential prin
ciple of it is the utilization of the
nalinal drriight, the air being healed
to a very high tempeiature before
reaching the burning ma;s. Only
in the moments when the doors aie
open for adding fresh coal does the
thick, black bmokc, usual in the
oidinary furnaces, escape combus
tion and pour out of the smokes ack
in a nasty, wasteful volume of civ
bon. In a few seconds after the
flies are replenished only a little,
thin, white smoke issues from the
chimney. Tho saving of coal on
the steamers named is estimated at
ten percent, while the enhanced
comfort of passongors on the upper
decks is inestimable. Many of the
Molokui excursionists on the Like
like tho other day observed wilh
satisfaction the successful operatlou
of the invention. Mr. Tucker has
taken out a patent for it here, and

The Chineso Quailcr of Snn Fran
cisco lias been aptly termed a bit of
old China. Willi Hi shops i osplcn
dent with Oriental led and yellow,
its pagoda-like restaurants, Us nar
row, noisome alleys, its uiitlcrgiotiud
opium and gambling dens, it fur
nishes a picture in miniature of the
seamy side of life in a Chinese city.
But what most wi iters forget is thai
Chinatown in the far Western me
tropolis rcpresenlB mainly the worst
featuics of Mongolian lite, and is as
unfair a type of comparison as
Mulberry or Baxter Street to-day
would be of the life of New Yoik.
Nine-tenths of the dwellers in San
Francisco's Chinatown me coolies,
ranking ns viitual slaves In their own
country, and doomed from biilh to
nicninf labor of the coaisest kind.
No Chinese of rank would tolerate
one of them as his body servant or
would permit otic to woik in any
capacity in his household. Outside
ihu Chinese Consulate in San F yu
cisco it is dutibtlul whether -me
would be able lo find a scoie of Chi
nese of good family or breeding
among the 20,000 hei'ded in China
town. Gathered in this way, is it
any wonder that the coolies in Cali
fornia include many criminals':'

i out!, they formed fc inulti ' u -(I'ciiou
what are knov.n as ol.o h t
Companies. Thesuvvie 'ashioni d
on ihe principle ol ,. :du &f'l s.
The men from Canton, "d insw i o,
formed one company. Aoiq otn
Hongkong another. The memliets
paid icgular dues, for which the
bociety furnished Ihein ho'ipif.il care
when sick, and guaranteed that their
bones should be carefully trans
ported lo China in ease of death.
They were nl-o lo be aided in any
iliflicully with Chinese of other com
panies or wilh whiles. The com
pany rooms weie the heatlquaiteis
for the members, where they could
get the latest news from China.
Outgiowths from these companies,
but independent of ihein, ate the
Highbinders' societies. Tlic-u aie
purely American institutions, like
the Six Companies, without counter
part in the old country. They ate
many in number, and their strength,
anil the desperate character of llieir
active members, and the swift ven
geance which they have dealt out
in offenders, have made them ieatcd
throughout the Pacific coa.t.
Though known as Freemasons, the
Highbinders ate really banded to
gether for black-mail and police
purposes. If by any favor the con
fidence of a Highbinder is won, lie
will have no hesitation in acknowledg
ing that he lives by black-mail. He
legal da his calling as perfectly
legitimate, and in carrying out the
oideis of his society ho would slop
at no ciiinc, for he looks on the
murder of one who has violated the
secrets of his society, or who has
received its sentence, as a meritori
ous bit of work.
The mother society among the I i'gh
jinders is the Chee Kung 'Io:j;,
which occupies a 4Ubslanlil i.rcd
slory building on Spoffoid Alley, in
the heart of the Chinese Quailor of
San Francisco. The society owns
the building and is icgulaily ini-oi-porated.
Ascending a llight of
staiis, one comes lo the Iaije assembly-hall,
a room sixty by twenly
ilve feet, well furiiLhcd in Chinese
btyle. Around the sides of the
room are ranged heavy carved onk
chairs, the wood of which looks like
ebony in shadow, and in strong light
shows the rich tolor of old rose
wood. In the centre of the reoin is
a table, and at one side are aiiauge
ments for making tea. On the
walls aie hung Chinese painliugsi
and mottoes, from Confucius. Just
at the head of tho M airway is a
long tablet of boxwood, on which
ate inscribed Ihe namss of the 1,200
charter members of the society, with
the amounts which they oiigiually
contributed. In the tear of the
npaiinifitt is a small olllce which
contains the usual corclt, covered
with clean malting and piovidcd
with an opium layout; on Iho walls
are the names of' the olllce and of
the police force for the half year.
Four "headmen" are eleted semi
annually, whoso woid is law, as well
us thirty-three "hatchetmen," as the
guard detailed to execute the de
crees of the society is called. Tho
Chee Kung is the most powerful of
nil tho societies, and has 1,500
members in Sun Francisco, and l.",
000 in all the Ameiican colonies
where Chinese have pencil ated.
Their lolls show thi't they have
branches in .'590 town in the United
States, Spanish America, and Cuba.
I A singular fact is that many mem
bers or the minor societies suit uc
long lo the Chee Kung.
The initiation for membership is
very ligid, and has been witnessed
by a few Ameiican detectives in
whom the Chinese have learned io
place conlldence. Tho candiU"o
kneels, and, with a largo Chinese
sword placed across his ihroat, and
the point of another piessed against
the nape of his neck, joins in the
chanting of an oath before the sa
cied symbols of the society an
oath which binds him to obey the
society, to renounce all ties of kin
dred, nnd lo swear to obey its com
mands without question at any lime.
Trials of accused persons ate held
ut stated intervals, and the sentence
is executed on the spot. Tho Im
plcinent of punishment resembles a
snw-liotse a log about six feet,
with four sho:t legs. Over ihis the
victim is bound, and Uio executioner j
with a club which resembles a base
ball bat, gives ihu icqiiisilo number
of blows on the back and legs. On
the floor above wheic this lot litre is
pr cllsed is the jii-s of the society.
The lulluence of this head society
is far-reaching, and il io doubtful
whether lis leaders would heed any
older from a lesser source than the
Chinese Consul. It is even said that
the Consul's order has sometimes
been oven tiled, as there are men in
the Chee Kung Tong who acknow
ledge no allegiance to China. The
doctrine is that the society must be
obeyed lira.. So when the Council
of Judges decide that a Chiucse has
committed an act which merits
death, the hatchet-men aie instruct
ed to kill him wherever found. "
he escape i'lom tvtu Lianeisco, the-e
is small prosne t of evading his
ptirsucis, as his name and dcsciip

man lo hmbor ihe fugitive or aid
him in any way. Ilu cannot return
to China unless he is unusuaby
clever 'n disguising himself, for all
the sui'jpiug ports sue closely watch
ed by the society's agents. This
sleepless espionage undermines the
courage of the btavcci man. It is
thi.ittgh tenor ol this fearful menace
t. 'at so many icpiuable C'lineso be
OiXic members of tue society. Out

Nauually these societies become
nest-) of criminal-. The ImlchctHncn
nie usually mtllnvvx. Even the best
of the Chinese have small regard
for human life, as llieir laws tolerate
the purchase of a substitute by a
wcilthy criminal condemned to exe
cu'ion, and the couipiomisc of a
minder by a money payment to the
relatives o" the victim. Trained in
his way, llie Highbinder is as reck
less of human life as the slave-
hunting At ab of Ihe Soudan. There
have been cases of minder in China
town, done for private revenge by
hired Highbinders, for the small
sum of Iwemy dollais, and the
ch'iapncss in which human life is
held by these people is a constant
marvel. he den-1'i.icss of the re
venge of the Highbinder when he
fancies ho hiw been e.iouged is illtts
luited by an incident which occpp'oi!
last year in ban Francisco. A while
salonn-kee or in I he Chinese Quarlc,
named De .i;wy, icscnicd an insult
offered to hK p.ulner's wife l.ry a
Chinese Highbinder by tin owing the
offending cooly into Ihe slieet. He
wtis warned lo be on his guutd, as
the man was a noloiiotis despeiado.
Two days laier Uetnpsey, in broad
daylight, wuite urawing a glass of

Chine; e, who coojly walked out of
the saloon, and escaped. Though
tue police Used evciy effort to force
the society io give him up, tho niur
deier still icniaius at large.
The Highbinder is almost cntiiely
beyond lue pale of Ameiican law.
His siciet hi(iiit';'-pltices defy the
ingenuity of the police; lie holds an
oath in court in contempt; he can
get a suit.o of witnesses in his so
ciety to swear to ruy.'bing which he

of the difficulty in the enforcement
of the Kestiictiou Act in San Fran

The weapons of tho Highbinder
arc all brought from China, with the
exception of the hatchet and the
pistol. The most murderous weapon
is what is called the double sword.
Two swords, each about two feet
long, are wornin a single scabbard.
A Chinese draws these, one in cacli
hand, and chops his way through a
crowd of enemies. Only one side
is sharpened, but the blade, like
Unit of all the Chinese knives, is
ground to a utzoredge. An effective
weapon at close quarters is the two
edged knife, usually worn in a
leather sheath. The handle is of
brass, generally richly ornamented,
while the blade is of the finest steel.
Most of the assassinations in China
town have been committed with this
weapon, one blow being sufficient to
ensure a mortal wound. The cleaver
used by the Highbinders is smaller
and lighter than the oidinary butch
er's cleaver. Tho iron club, about
a fool and n half long, is enclosed
in a sheath, and worn at the side
like a swoid. Another weapt n is a
cuiious sword with a large gttaid for
the hand. The hatchet is usually of
American make, but ground as
sharp as a utzor.

the leather wiisllet. This conies
half-way up to the elbow, and pieces
of iron inserted in the leather serve
to ward off even a heave stioke of
a sword or hatchet. Tllarper's
