the words C?uhg-s??-Yat-Po, the daily
newspaper; and if curious be may as
cend the narrow stair and reach the
editorial and other rooms of one of the
several Chinese papers published in
this Chinese-American city. Little Can
ton, as lt is sometimes called. This pa
per was first started as a weekly, but
was changed to a daily, and is now
an influential organ of what might
be termed the Americanized Chinese,
or tje New Chinaman, as the editor
is a Chinese minister of the Presby
terian Church, a man of high cultiva
tion from the American standpoint.
He is the Rev. Ng Poon Chew, and one
of his literary advisers and aids is
John Fryer, LL.D., who Gils the chair
of Chinese literature at the University
of California; but the typesetters, the
clerks, in. fact all tho employes, are
Chinamen, some of whom are gradu
ates of American schools. In the busi
ness office and editorial room there is
little to attract the attention. Amer
ican desks and chairs and telephone
are the appliances of *he workers; but
when the visitor enters the composing
room, a high, cheerless brick-wall-in
closed room, he is confronted with the
fact that here as well as elsewhere in
China things are upside down. In a
word, the typesetter is quite as im
portant o factor as the editor: at least
such is the impression gained by the
Tver .who faces the extraordinary
" tl?e Chinese compositor?'
?rican typesetter is obliged
ten figures and a few signs ana sym-y
bois, as periods, dollar marks, etc., but
the Chinese compositor must be fa
miliar with 11.000 characters of this
archaic language, i.bout which Profes
sor R. K. Douglas says: "Every root
ls a word, every word is a root. It is
without inflexion or even agglutination:
its substantives are indeclinable, and
Its verbs are not to be conjugated; it
ls destitute of an alphabet, and finds
its expression on paper in thousands
of distinct symbols."
It is needless to go into a description
of this marvelous language to explain
the difficulties of the Chinese compos
itor; but one illustration is sufficient.
Certain sounds often stand for several
hundred words, the difference, often
vital- to an intelligent presentation of
an idea, depending on certain diacrit
ical marks accompanyng each word.
There are thousands of these symbols
which are engraved, each one repre
senting a .type, but a well-regulated
newspaper will require but 11,000 char
acters;, if others are needed they are
.made in the office. A font of type In
the Chinese language requires 11,000
spaces, and in the large and spacious
racks here shown each word instead
of each letter, as in English, rhns a
place for itself. There is also a pe
culiar grouping or classification of
symbols into groups to further facili
tate the mental labors of the typeset
ters. Thus in the immediate vicinity
of the symbol for nsn would be found
the symbols for scales, net, fins, tail,
gills. This simplifies the labor, which
in any event must be sb strenuous that
it is evident that the compositor's end
of the Chinese newspaper should, if
perfect "justice ruled, be tho highest
The compositor is a staid and dig
nified individual, and as he slowlv
walks from symbol to symbol, pickii ,

pos.ltor might well wonder when th<
work would be completed; and to se

"THE OLD TOIBS PRISON
AND ?HE NEU.
??EAt interest centres in the
disappearance of the old-time
wall aboht the-original struc*
lure of the Tombs Prison in
, New York City, and the substitution
j of the new granite cinelosure. The
change attracts daily attention from
the little crowds of loungers who hang
about the neighborhood' of the Crim
inal Court building. The process of
change from the old to the new Is so
gradual, yet so sure, that the ancient
regime will be merged into the new
j almost without anybody knowing it.

WOMEN GOLD BEATERS.
A FIELD OF WORK ABOUT "WHlvH
l\ - LITTLE IS KNOWN.
r?cfe ht Regard to tlio Industry - Great
Judcinont nnil Skill .IN quired by the
Workmen- Successful Opposition ortho
^ Men-Mentors to Women Employment.
! The recent strike among the gold
heaters, the Issues at stake being the
Increase of wage3 and discharge of
women employed in the business, must
have caused a good many people to
inquire what a woman gold .beater Is.
Gold beating is one of the smallest
of American industries, as it is, in
some respects, one of the most-pecu
liar. The conditions under which it
exists enable, the workmen to-dicate
. terms to their employers, the latter
frankly admitting that they have to
j cither give in or go" out of business..
There- are only about 500 gold beaters
in this country; the work is expert,
: ard not every one can learn it. The
English and German workmen" are too
well paid to think of emigrating; and
o? course the contract labor law stands
in the way of sending for them from
The recent strike was really on ac
count of the women. The increase of
w^ges would have been granted the
m'^n for the asking, hut employers
\w>re reluctant to discharge for no
caise women who served faithfully
foTlow wages, did their work better
than the men could do it, and were,
in many cases, widows and orphans
of /.he strikers* fellow-workmen. They
hefd out for seven weeks, hoping that
tho men would soften, but tho hope
was not realized. The women had to
go. It is pleasant to know that ono
firm, the largest in New York, kept
the,.discharged womens names on the
pay-roll, and will continue to send
thom their wages until employment
can be found for them. .
Small as the gold-beating industry
i&, and little notice as its troubles at
tracted, the results of them might
have been very far-reaching. Manu
facturers, it is said, actually consid
ered whether it would not be as well
for them to go out of the business
as far as the beating itself was con
cerned. If they had done so the price
of gold picture frames would have ad
vanced at least 25 percent on ac
count of that tariff on gold leaf. Art
ists would have felt this very serious
ly, since their frame-maker's bills are
heavy enough as it is. Decorators,
painters, sign makers, bookbinders,

squares and placed between the
leaves of a parchment book three
inches sqrare. This book is called
the cutch, and contains two hundred
leaves. . When it has been placed in
a heavy parchment --envelope it is giv
en to a brawny workman- with arm
and shoulder muscles like a gladiat
or. ' .He- stands before' a pounding
block of solid granite, and, with an
iron hammer. weighing 15 pounds,
beats the cutch until tho gold within
is three inches square instead of one
inch. The blow struck is not the
crushing blow of a butcher's ax; it
must rebound lightly. The effort is
expended in the upward swing of the
arm and not in thc stroke. Women,
of course, have no part in this work.
The gold is next cut in quarters and
placed in another book called thc
shoda, which contains so-'o 850
leaves. This book consists of a pe
culiar substance made from the en
trails of oxen. It is as fine and
smooth and flexible as the lining of
an eggshell. It is very costly, the price
of a single book being $50. A book will
stand 150 beatings, after which it is
sold to manufacturers of imitation
Tho shoda is beaten with a lighter
hammer and a more expert stroke.
The idea is to make the leaf a little
thicker on the edges than in the mid
dle. This is in order that when he leaf
is finally trimmed and sold the manu
facturer and not the buyer will get the
The man who beats the shoda was
really the cause of the strike. Up to
this time all the work is in the hands
of men. The transferring of the leaf
from the shoda to the next hook and
the final beating has always been the
work of women. A light touch and a
deft hand are required to do this With
out breaking the leaf, which has now
been beaten to the thinness of the
thinnest tissue-paper. Some of tho
men say they wanted to take the work
away from the women because they
knew they could do it, and they
thought they ought to be alloweu more
chance to sit down and rest from theil
severe labor. Others admit that th'ej
"'uiply wanted to earn more money.
Ono is interested to observe thal
the men are rather awkward in the ac
complishment of . their new task. Al

J?aron -Sliibnsnu-n of Japan.
In'the East-as well as in the West
lhere are opportunities for a strong
man to make his own way. In proof of
:his, the life story of Baron Shibusa
wa, the Japanese financier,-who was
recently so well received' here, is told
throughout the Orient as ari illustra
tion of what a plain citizen may hen
. Starting without advantages of birth
or backing, he attached himself as a
youth to the great Tokugawa family.
He reorganized <he unsettled finances
of the clan, and out vi gratitude its
chief made him a government officer.
His ability was quickly shown in
the minor office he obtained and he
rose rapidly. First he was tax. comp-'
troller, then assistant vice-minister,
next junior vice-minister and, finally
vice-minister of finance. ? ' :
Then, when the highest places with
in the gift of the emperor were with
in his reach., ho suddenly gave up state
craft and returned to privat? life. As j
a plain citizen he planned, he labored,
lie organized. < .
In.a-few months he was acknowl
edged as the leader of an. industrial
revolution which was' to make a new
Japan. Largely through bis ' influence
the empire set aside dreams of mili
tary glory and chose the . sober tri
umphs of peace.
He extended her railways, her ship
ping and her industries. A Japanese ad
mirer has counted and tabulated the
organizations and companies, of which

wa is either the head or the guiding
spirit. They number more than one
hundred and fifty and include every
