(San Francisco Chronicle.)
Pandemonium roigus in Spuflbrd
alloy and tho highbinder is hold
ing high carnival. Tlioro is a ilut
tor of buttlo flags, gorgeously
tinsollod bunners and ombroider
ed draperies. Tliero is tho shout
of thorn th tit feast, tlio screeching
of bullet singors with tbo usual
oar-splitting accompaniments of
torn toins, gongs and drums
mingled with tho fulsotto notes of
tho chief soloist. Tho center of
till this commotion is the bull of
tbo -Choe Kune; Tung in tbu inid
dlo of tlio Spaflbrd alloy, a nar
row street running between Wash
ington iiml Cluy. Few poodle in
Sun Francisco liavo any idea of
tbo character of this toug. It
poses beforo tbu American com
munity as an innocent lodge of
Chinese Free Masons and is in
corporated under tho laws of tbo
State as a benevolent institution.
In reality its uiotnbors are no
moro tbo kindred of Froo Masonry
than are the Chicago unurchists
or the Mutiu.
It will surpriso muny roadors of
tbo "Cbroniole" to bo informed
thut the Cheo Kungs are n branch
of that terrible Hung Society
which is responsible for tbo mas
sacre of tho Kueheng missionaries
lust Juno und for tho riots and
J destruction of foroign property in
I iTang Tszo valley some four yoars
ago. Their identity has been es
tablished beyond doubt by the
book of ritual which was captured
by bergeiuil Trice during tho not
ed police raid upon tho highbind
er tongs in 1892. This book is
identically tho sumo as that of the
Triad, tho Ko Lo, White Lily ntid
Vegetarian societios in China.
They tiro all brunches of the Hung
Society, that rebol hordo whoso
aim is tbo overthrow of tbo pro
sent dynasty, which is Mauchu
To i tur, and tho restoration of the
Ming dynasty, tho Chinese family,
that was overthrown by tho Tur
turs in 1850.
Thore is no noed of speculation
about tbo history and objects of
this society. Thoy aro fully set
forth in the Hung manual. An
ordor of monks, who like theso
brethren of tho yellow robe overy
whoio, live on rico and vogotables,
wore suspected of troasonublo in
trigues und wero cruolly put to
deutn by tbo Emperor Kion Lung.
It was to avenge their doath that
tbo Hung Society was organized
and which has boon responsible
forevory uprising in China against
tho present ruling house culmin-
iitiiig ui tho Tuo ring reboilion
yeais ago which devastated ton
provinces and was only put down
by General Gordon.
Tho rolontloss rigor with which
tbu rebels wero pursued by tho
Viceroy of Canton thirty-iivo
years ago drovo thousands across
tho sous whoro fhoy established
themselves in Singapore, Malacca,
tho Philippines and other places.
Happening just at tho time tho
Chineso wore coming to America
muny Hung mon camo over to the
United States and huvo establish
ed sociotios wherever Chinese mo
found. On the l'uoilic Coast it is
known as the Choo Kung Tong or
Hall of High Justice In tho
Eastern States tho samo society is
kuown us tho Yeo Ming Uey or
the Society of Just Brotherhood.
Theso Mungsuro really the must
powerful und cohosivo body of
Chineso on this continent. There
is not a Chi atown in tbo land
but bus u branch society and hall
of tbo association over which
ilouts tho woll-known rod Hug
with white fringe
Americans liavo formed tho im
pression that tbo Six Companies
dominate tho Cbinoso in America.
Tlio fact is thoy liavo littlo or no
authority ovor their kinsmen, mid
the real dominant Chineso power
is the Cheo Kung Tong. It is a
star chamber which brings every
Chinoso under mirvoilliiiico and
whoso iron grip holds tbu Cbinoso
in America in abject terror. Its
traditions aro bloody. Its oaths
are tikon in blood. Tho neophyte
must drink a mingled portion of
wino and blood, ouch person's
finger boing pricked with a neodlo
till a drop of blood falls nto the
wiuo cup. Ho swears that ho
will nevor more recognize tho
Manchu sovereigns; ron.iuncos
kith and kin, swears bis allegiance
to tho grand master, imprecates
don th upon himself if ho over
divulg-s tho secrets of tho Hung
or tbo decrees of tho court, and
olTors his life and fortune to bo
used us tbo chief shall direct.
If he enlists as a salaried
soldior bo is providod with a
ch'tin coat which is worn undor
tho blone, and a Colt's revolver
when the titno comes for fighting
Tho Cheo Kung Tong after
sevoral years of discreet retiro
mont is beginning to come to the
front one.' moro. It is tho only
highbinder society that is per
mitted to 'bang out its sign and
Uing its Hag to tho broizo in
San Francisco. There is a vast
amount of crime and plots con
cealed from public view under
tho cover of that innocent look
ing sign in English which rends
"Chineso Free Masons." Tbo
Cbinoso know tho Choe Kuugs
are tbo worst highbinders in
America, and are responsible for
half tho crimes that liavo dark
ened Chinatown. These thugs
aro showing thoir hand once
moro, emboldouod, it is boliovod,
by tlio hostile attitude of tbo
civilized world just now to tho
corruption and incompetence, of
the present dynasty.
At present these mon huvo no
desire to return homo. Thoy
know that if they go to China
thoy would get no further than
Hongkong. Information from
tbo Cousul-Genoral to tho au
thorities in Canton would ac
company thorn on tho steamer
and thoir summary arrest and do
dipitutiou would follow. Threats
of deportation made by tho Con-sul-Gcneral
have donu more to
keep this torriblo organization in
check than tho whole polico force
in San Francisco. But China is
now in a stato of chaos, and tbo
bighbindor of San Francisco, who
has loarned to shoot straight nt
street targots, and who is by fur
the bravest and tbo most fearless
Chinese in Amoricn, may yet have
a chance of playing tin important
part in that revolution and over

Tho ordinary general meeting of
tho shareholders of tho Hawaiian
Tramways Company (Limited)
was hold on Soptombor 30th ut
tho Cannon-stroot Hotel (Lon
don). Colonel 0. M. Davidson
presided, and, in moving tho
adoption of the report, stated that
tho cause of tho declino in tho
profits was the onforcomont of
martial law, which had been no
cossitated by the change from a
Monarchy to a ltopublio. Owing
to this the hours of movomont
wore curtuiled nnd tho usual pur
suits of tho population were upset
Tho profits of tho company had
thus been reduced by about $5,
000, but if the trallic returns of
tho past few months wero main
tained thoy would do vory well.
Thoy obtained permission from
the Legislature in 1890 to use
electric traction, but up to tho
present they had boon nnublo to
recommend its adoption to tho
shareholders, owing to tho ox
peuso both of tho installation and
oonvorsion. In America electric
traction was greatly usod, and no
doubt it hud an advantage in
man' instances over horse trac
tion. Some company promoter
brought forwaid a bill for electric
traction in opposition to this
company's, but tho measure was
thrown out in Honolulu. There
still, howover, remained a desire
for electric tiactiou on thoir tram
ways, and tho directors were tak
ing ovory stop to inquire tlio price
of the conversion and the cost of
generating uud rouowal. It was
very difiicult to obtain correct de-1
tails as regarded rouowal, electric
tramway iicoonnts not yet being '
nerfoctlv olcnr on this bond. Thoy
would wish to convort, run. anil
renew tho systom thomsolves. but
thoy must bo usiurod that thu
shareholders would receive b'no
fit as woll as the traveling publ
When they had tbo whole infor
mation ready they would report
tho fact to tho shareholders und
cull a mooting of thorn bo fore do

with steel hulls, and all of them
