San Fran* isco, Feb. 10.?lt lias been discovered
*by tho officials of the Chinese Registration lbi

made to Identify ench bolder by personal marks,
the Offtdala admit that portraits an.l marks
cannot prevent fraudulent Impersonation. Even
noars can be ma le I."der tn Hong Kong and
applicants thus titted t" pass even searching In?
quiry at this port. Judging by the keen desire
shown hy tbousandB of ('him se in Hong Kong

to be much fraud in this certificate business.
Some relics of the sunken steamer Hrothor
Jonathan have been brought here by a diver,
john F. Byan, win. asserts that he lias located
the ship ami found th,' "reties on her deck.
The steamer sunk nearly twenty years ago off
the California Coast Dear Crescent City, carry?
ing down IM passengers and crew and over
one million dollars treasure. Twelve attempts
have been made to locate the wreck, but none
prover! successful. Ryan says that an assistant
engineer of the Bteamer, Who was one of the
seventeen survivors, pave him the Clew t'> the
location of the wreck, and that recently he
veriii'd this Information. He declares that the
vessel is In very still water, and that her Umbers <
are sound, as .she ls below the level of usual
submarln" Insects. He is confident be ran raise
the vessel, but those who have had experience j
differ with him.
Cold rains and bitter winds have combined
to make this one of the most disagreeable weeks
of the winter. Yet the attendance at the Mid?
winter Fair ha-s .ranged from 7,000 to 12.000 daily.
Most of the exhibits are now in place, and the
vegetation is growing more beautiful every day.
The expulsion a.f Hubert II. Bancroft, the his?
torian Of the Pacific States, by the Society ..f
california Pioneers, is very tardy revenge for hi*
plain-speaking comment on Fremont, suttor anal
other men whom the pioneers hold In high honor.
Bancroft gathered evidence ahowbig that Fre?
mont never received instructions fruin the Gov?
ernment which he claimed to receive. He also
proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that |
Suttor had no claim to the military title he need,
Hnd on very small capital ha> bought an enor?
mous property from the Russians which he m ver
could hat.- paid for. Bancroft didn't mince j
words in discussing the acts of Fremont and
Suttor But he was n.it half so hitter in his
comment as Professor J .slab Royce In his history
Of California, in the American Commonwealth
Series Han. toft ls a peculiar man, with Strong
likes and dislikes, but If he deserved expulsion
from the Pioneer Society, lt seems as though
thlfl action Bhould I ave ben taken a de, ade ago,
when the books lirst appeared, and not al this
Chinatown waa beautifully decorated this
week In honor of the New-Tear's festival, but
those who hav.- observed similar celebrations
in the past declared that the pinch of hard
times was to be seen on every hand. Many
vacant stores are to be seen iti the quarter, and
merchants complain that business is bs L When
work is plenty and wagefl arc food the China?
man spends money liberally for the r.m.fI things
nf life, but he is a rigid economist in bad times.
and this ls the secret of the great shrinkage In
Among the disreputable people whom the Mid?
winter Fair has attracted are dealers in obscene
pictures and books, who have tried to circulate
their wares in the public schools. Their scheme
was promptly nipped in the hud. The proprie?
tors raf a new bookstore on Market-st also dis?
played flash pictures, but they w*re chastened
hy the police, who raided the place and car?
ried away a wagon-load of objectionable matter.
The "Society for Suppression ot Vice is -rigorously
at work, but laxity in enforcing ordinances
snakes Its labors very hard.
Among the deatns of the week was that of i
Gustave Leipnltz, known for forty years in San
Francisca as "The Snake Doctor." He kept a
drugstore, in a show window of which were
always big rattlesnakes an.l other venomous
reptiles. Leipnlta handled these pets without
fear. He was very charitable, and marie thou- ,
sands of free prescriptions every year.
The bursting of ;? great meteor in the Nevada
desert has created much Interest among scientific
men, but it la doubtful whether any large aped
men win i>r- aeeured because of the remoteness of '
the place and the deep snow. The explosion "f
the meteor was attended by many of the pbs- i
noroens of an earthquake.
FUNNY RHODE ISLAND DEMOCRATS.
SUET STILT. KBET I'P THE LCOIRLATIVg FARCE,
PIT ARE PREPARING Tai SURRENDER
Providence, R. I., Feb. 10 (Special-).?Indications
seem to point lo s more or less graceful backdown
on the part of the Dem eratic leaders in the House
of Representatlvi - Representative Honey, chair?
man of the Judiciary Committee, ta., which body
the Governor's mi isace was referred unread, made
u long and remarkable report this week, in which
hs Bald that D. Russell Brown was still <: ivernor
a.! the Btate by reason of the hold-over provision
in the Constitution; bul urged that h<- iras wrong?
fully holding tiii*. position by reason of the refusal
of the Senate to ji In the House in Grand Commit?
tee. H<* re- imnv le I lhal Ihe message of the G iv?
ernor for thal n aa >n be returned l ? ihe Bi nate un?
read. The minority of ibe Judiciary Committee to
<l.iy submitted their report, In which ihey went
over the leg il questions involved In the present
etralne 1 Bit USI lon. They considered that such a
disposition of tne Governor's message as is recom
ma-nded In the report of the majority of the Ju?
diciary Committee appears i > be Inconsistent with
the dignity of the House snd the respect which is '
due the head of the executive department of the
Government. They therefore recommended lhal the
?weenga bs received by the Houae, read snd ordered
to be printed |_ the usa,il manner. This whole
question will be debated by the House on Wednes?
day. The message will probably be sent to the
??nate unread by a strict party vote Hut that ls
about as for na the Democracy will pet In their
programme of defiance of the Governor and the
Senate. Their much boasted Intention .if refu?,n<
to pass the Appropriation bill h.is probably l-'-en |
abandoned, lt la stated thnt assurances have been j
Riven th" Republicans that the Appropriation bill '
will be passed In the regular auder a.f things, and ;
that there will be n i necessity on the iiart ..f the
?Governor again to exi rclaa his constitutional pow?
ers in adjourning Um General Assembly.
ll ;s said lhat OS Tuesday n-xt the Mons-, win
send up another resumion Inviting the Benate to
?join in Grand Committee, and that Senator Miller ;
will deliver a carefully prepared argument in favor
of accepting the Invitation. The Benate will, a-a
usual, r.-fu?c. ai. i ti;, b probably both housefl will
aettle down to the routine work ..f th** aeaaios,
and egree lo leave the whole question te be settled
In the coming Btate election.

from a pecuniary or nodal point of via w. liv un?
