M
me, and 1 do not want to die,'
Said Lu Chi.
I "But they will not kill you,"
said Kim Chung, ""because this
shall be done-according to the
White Man's law, and- the police
in the blue uniforms will stop
Bing Shi Ko and his. -friends if
they attempted violence."
"All right," whispered "Lu Chi,
and stole upstairs and spent
many hours making herself ever
more beautiful
'Then Kim Chung, who was
completely out of his senses,
went to 'the Eresbyterian mission,
and whispered thataslave girl,
a girl who had bepnybought and
paid for, was heldat the house of
Bing Shi'Ko,Mhe merchant, o'n
Grant street!
The membersof the mission
Were: very indignant when they
jieard this, and communicated
With the police, and it came-to
pass even as Rim Chung had
prophesied.
The police in 'blue uniforms
descended upon the house of Bing
Shi Kb and took therefrom Lu
Chi, the slave girl, and gave her
to the missionaries, and talked
about indicting Bing Shi'Ko
The rest was eas)r. Kim Chung
went to the mission and saw Lu
Chi, and set a time that night, and
met her, and took hereaway with
him to Sacramento.
When Bing SKi Ko understood
the trick that had been played up
6n him, he was rery angry. "Who
Would not be angry who had been
robbed of a fair slave girL whom
ne had bought cheanlv o'r S52.-
Bink Shi Kb went to the head
of his tong, and told him the
story. The head of BingShi Ko's
tohg sent a messenger to the head
of Kim Chung's tong, demanding
recompense for the stealing of Lu
Chi.
But the head of Kim Ghung's
tongs breakfast had not agreed
with him, and he beat the mea
serfger of Bing Shi Ko's tongand
sent him back to his master with
an insulting message.
This explains why Kim Chusg
aqd Lu Chirthe slave girl, were
found .dead in a room in the
China town, of Sacramento, and
why four other menibers of Kim
Chung's tone paid for the imper-
rtinenceof their chief and the
stealing of Lu Chi with their lives
It also explains why there will
be many more killing in the
Chinatowns, because the Kim
Lums have armed, and sent word .
to the Bing Shi Ko's that they
wiljexact a life for a life, and the
war will not end unjil the Six
Companies, mighty arbitors of
the affairs of the American Chi
nese, "get together and say
"enough blood has been shed;
honor- is satisfied." And this
will not come at once, for the
Six Companies move slowly.

"The law," stormed the refor
mer, "says that "you can't have a
saloon within five hundred feet
of .a. church."
"That's all right, oW man," said
