"Following out the suggestion of

It now turns out that a certain cle
ment of Chlncso in Chinatown havo
threatened to kill anyono who shall
give tho Board ot Health Information
In regard to plaguo cases In their
midst. -They havo already threatened
tho Clnncso Consul and Vlco Consul In
their recently nested bills. In these
Is tho statement that tho two officials
aro worse than useless nnd that they
"should not bo anywhere." This was
Interpreted by a Chlneso scholar as
meaning a threat to kill. Besides
these two men tho Chinese physlclnns
who have given Information to tho
Board of Health and tho health agents
who havo been active In tho work ot
ferreting out suspicious cases of Chin
ese sick havo been threatened,
although not openly.
Tho cmnnmen object to tho regula
tions of tho Board ot Health principal
ly because they know thnt bodies of
their countrymen who havo died from
the plaguo In this country will bo cre
mated as others hae already been cre
mated. This makes it .mposslblo to
remove tho bones to China n part of a
Chinaman's religion thnt Is most rigid
ly adhered to ull'over tho world. Tho
feeling of tho Chlneso Is most strong
on that point nnd It wns brought out
nt the meeting of tho Chinese with
Minister Cooper yesterday afternoon,
when several- ot the prominent Chln
cso present naked If tho ashes ot the
Chlncso bookcepcr ot Wing Wo Tnl's
store, cremated by tho orders ot tho
Board of Health, had been kept.
Another objection is to the quaran
tine. Many of tho malcontents bellevo
that Cnlnatown Is ngaln to bo quar
antined. They claim that natives In
tho localities where plaguo existed had
their pol dally and fared well while tho
Chlneso wero compelled to starve
A goodly part of tho blamo for this
Is laid at tho door ot tho Chlncso Con

An Enjoyable Christmas Tree.
Friends to the numbor of noventy
or more had a very enjoyablo tlmo at

nnd the agents ot iho Board ot Health
who havo been threatened nro on tho
qui vivo for anything that might crop
up, particularly slnco they know there
aro nt least four or flvo Chinese high
binder societies In Chinatown.
To show tho feeling over the mattor
nnd its early origin nn Incident that
happened on tho Saturday beforo tho
quarantine was lifted might bo cited.
Dr. LI was walking down Nuuanu
street with his wheel when a friend ac
costed him and naked for tho news.
Then ho got tho doctor Into a contro
versy ocr tho nlacuc and asked him
how ho could tell anyono was nffllotcd
with tho plague. Hot words followed
and the quostloner started to assault
Dr. LI who, wishing to avoid trouble,
Jumped on his wheel and rode off. Tho
sentiment of tho Chlncso crowd that
collected was clearly with tho question
Another caso In point Is ns follows:
Dr. Tong, of the Chinese hospital, was
credited by one of the Chlneso newspa
pers with notifying tho Board of
Health that the unineso uooKKeeper ni
Wing Wo Tal's died of the plaguo, he
having mado the examination of tho
body. This was tho causa ot dlro
threats being made against Dt. Tong.
As a matter pf fact the doctor did not
agrco that tho man died ot tho plague
until after the quarantine wns declar
ed by the Board ot Health.
Although tho threats meniioneu
abovo cannot be laid at any particular
one's door, still it is a fact that they
aro talked ot generally In Chinatown
and that tho feeling Is very bitter. The
bills defaming tho Chlneso Consul and

Resolved. By the Senate nnd tho
House ot Representatives, that tho
Government of tho United States re
cognizes a condition of public war bo

public of tno Transvaal, and tho United

they w 111 maintain a condition of strict

Congress of tho United States protests
and remonstrates against tho barbar
ous manner In which tho war has been
conducted by Great Britain, nnd tho

such steps ns may be expedient in his
Judgment to secure an obscnance of

Mr. Sulzcr said of tho resolution:
"My sympathy Is with tho heroic
Bocra. They aro making n bravo nnd
gallant fight against great odds for
their homes, their firesides nnd their
liberties. Wo-Bhould not secretly or
openly help Great Britain to their dis
advantage. We should nccord tho
Boers all tho rights of bolllgercnU. 1
want to sco tho Boers win, nnd I hope
they will. 1 nm opposed to tho 'pig
sticking' mode of warfare Great Britain
Is carrying on. it what 1 renu in inu
papers Is true this cruelty and Inhu

of conization. I shall do all In my
power to pass this resolution, and I
want to go on record In favor of tho
Boers nnd their republic nnd against
England or any Anglo-American alli
ance, expressed or Implied."
