No dopnrtmcnt of tlio Govorn
inont sorvico in San Francisco
gives tlio Federal authorities more
trouble thnn the dotoction of
smugglers who opornto through
tlio Post Ollico, yot it is one of tlio
most important bronchos of tlio
sorvico, requiring koon observa
tion and dolicato touch.
Sorao of tho most important
smuggling operations ovnr dotcct
od in tho United Stutes Postal
Sorvico have boon unearthed in San
Francisco. Though the Now York
Post Office is at tho gateway of
tho groat Occidental civiliza
tions of Europo and tho Conti
nent, that office has novor boon
imposod upon by tho sinugglors
sn much us tho San Francisco
ollieo. Tho reason for this m that
tho goods of tho Orient are of that
dolicato texturo and weight that
rondor thorn peculiarly adapted
to tho mails, whilo most of tho
manufactures of tho countries of
Europo are bulky and moro adapt
ed to freight ships than to mail
But tho practico of smuggling
at tho San Fraucisoo marUot is
not what it was onco, bocause tho
many ruses formerly employed
have lost thoir novolty, ono by
one, and tho risk is generally too
great in proportion to the value of
tho articlos that can bo smuggled
"In tho old days," said Supor
intendant Moiiros a fow days ago,
"thero woro fifty or sixty casos of
smuggling a month, but now tho
seizuros will not reach over
Tho poculiar genius shown by
tho sondors of prohibited articlos
is now quito wen niuancou oy mo
astuteness of tho clerks whose
duty it is to forret thorn out.
During the holiday season tho
groatost uumber of confiscations
aro mado. Thoy consist largely
of silk handkerchiefs, silk hose,
fans, curios, books and other
valuable things from tho Oriont,
nnd thoy como to tho office in all
guises and shapes. It is a vory
common practice to placo a hand
korohiof in a newspaper, tho en
tire package being folded and
addressed in tho ordinary way.
Of courso, tho handkorchiofscomo
principally in the China mails,
and thon often reach their desti
nation without discovery.
A votoran in the offico, who has
mado a close study of tho silk
handkorohiof problem, rocontly
said: "I cannot say just how
it is that I discover hand
kerchiefs in newspapers, but
it seems to be a sort
of intuition or second nature, like
playing a piano or shaving in tho
dark. Tho ends of my fingors
seom to bo alivo, and I get an
idea that tho yiohling packago
contains a silk fabric. I can
Bimply feel it."
About a dozen hankorchiofs are
taken from evory Oriontal mail.
It is ono of tho most interesting
phases of tho curious dotectivo
art to watch a low rapid clerks
handle twonty or thirty largo
sacks of Oriontal mail. Somo
times glovo3 and dainty articles
of silk aro detectod in tho San
Francisco mails, and once a silver
cross from across tho Atlantic
catno in a prayer book. A squaro
holo was cut in tho inside of tho
book from pago ono to the oloso,
nnd in it was placed a valunblo
silver cross. Tho recoiving clork
folt tho depression and tho book
was turnod ovor to the Customs
It seoms odd that attompts
flhould ho made to smuggle mush
rooms into tho San Francisco
Postoffico from Italy, but tho
practico is quito prevalent. Tho
mushrooms aro of a poculiar
brand, dried, and quito
rolished by Italian rosidonts.
Thoy como in small hags, as a
rulo, with 10 to 18 conts in pist
ngo attached, and aro almost in
variably detected by tho clerk's
organ of srnoll, upon which tho
mushrooms havo an omphatic
Goods sent in violation of tho

tho receiver is usually advisod
that ho had bettor inform the

case of a ropotition of tho oflbuso
