HEMAY LOSE HIS HEAD
TheFate that lay Befall the Chinese^Consul General la San Francisco.
HeIs Charged With Taking; About ^^00,^OOO Due His Fellow Celestials^for Indemnities Paid by^I licit- nam.
SanFrancisco, Sept. *J6.--Tlie sensa^^tion caused by til*- recent pufalit'utioli of^serious cburgfes of crookedness against^Leong Hang Tsang, tin- Chinese consul-^general at this port, lias not yet subsided.^It is asserted tliut Tsang has retained in^the neighborhood of $JUu,OUO due his^countrymen for indemnity claims granted^by the United States government for^property destroyed during the unti-Chi-^nese riots at Rock Spring*, Wyo., Tu-^coma, W. T., and several other places.^The affair was lirought to light^by the arrival in this city of Bock Hing, a^merchant of Portland, Ore., who repre^^sented himself as the assignee of a num^^ber of coolies who were Justly entitled to^part of tlie money which had been paid^the consul-general and on which he is^said to have made no accounting. Mas-^tick, Belcher * Mastic, as attorney* for^Bock Ming and many claimants residing^at Portland, filed a auit in the United^States district court against Leong Hang^Tsang for eir.OOO. The defense set up is^that the consul-general lias paid that^claim and holds Bock Hing a receipt^for it. He says that the money was^paid through one Gum Yu Sam, who^Is now in China. A letter recently re^^ceived from Hong Kong by a ('hinese^merchant declares that Gum Yu Sam was^given 92,000 fay the consul-general on con^^dition that he should sign a receipt for^the $17,OUO due to Bock Hing and others.^The rest of the money, it is charged, was^divided among Tsang and two firms of^Chino^e*ierchaiits In this city. Knowl^^edge of .this conspiracy leaked out, and^Gum Yu Sam was arrested soon ufter his^arrival in China, where, he remains in^custody. The impression prevails that^now Hang Tsang will be placed under ar^^rest and sent buck home for triul. Should^lie be convicted there, his head will liter^^ally fall into the basket.

NewOrleans, Sept. 26.^The state^^ment of the cashier of the state treasury^during Burke's term that lie had called^Burke's attention in lSUti to the fact that^coupons hud hecii presented of bonds^supposed to liuve been destroyed, was^cabled to Maj. Burke in Loudon. Burke^lias replied, telling how the apparent dis^^crepancies might exist, unci says lie is^tied down by his business in London, but^when when he cuu get away will sail for^Louisiana. It is understood that Judge^Ma it will charge the grand jury next^week to investigate the matter and faring^indictments against those found to^have been engaged in placing in^^valid securities on the market.^Judge Stanberry, wlu^ wus for^some time engaged with Burke in u busi^^ness capacity, lias made a statement show^^ing he negotiated loans for Burke at differ^^ent times amounting to thousands of^dollars, always depositing as collateral^state bond* handed him by Burke for that
tiurpose.In comparing the numbers he^Kindled with those now published, he^finds that amotig the ImmmIs handled fay^him nearly $2U,UU0 were fraudulent. He^hod no doubt of their validity until the re^^cent disclosures. Stauslierry's statement,^which is made on the advice of his attor^^ney, shows that Burke as fur liuck as 1KS4^was using faotids then in his keeping us^state treasurer as collutcrul in borrowing^money for his own use.
InFavor of the Northern Pacific.
Washington,Sept. J6.--i11 the case of^the Northern Pacific railroad company vs.^Randolph, Secretary Nohle to-day decided^that fay failing to appear to op|mse the^final proof of proceedings on the part of^pre-emption or other claimants u railroad^company does not forfeit the rights which^the whole case made shows it to |*^^scss.^It simply cannot insist on any further o|^-^|m^rtiiiiity to contradict proofs submitted,^as it has hail its ^day in court,^ but if on^these proofs themselves it still up|s*urs on^the face of the whole record that the com^^pany lias prior or sii|s-riur rights, judg^^ment must go accordingly. This decision^corrects the widely prevalent misnpprc-^liclision us to the effect of the ^Forest^^and other cases which were sup|s^sc^l to^inflict forfeiture of rights upon railroad^companies who failed to appear at^hearings.

Washimiitom,Se| 1. SB. The Pruning^('nftifnl says: The report of Messrs. Ew-^iug, CamptM'll anil Bruce, the commission^that investigated tin* |ieusion office,though^chmely guarded by tin- interior department^officials, is gradually becoming known. It^is known tliut the report takes up each re-^rating case separately ami each case is ex^^hibited in itself. Stress is laid upon the^fact that Deputy Commissioner Hiram^Smith, Jr., received over BkOOU as a re-rat^^ing- This action of his comes in for se^^vere criticism in the report. Whether^Smith lias returned this BLOW or^not tin* report does not stale.^Smith receives his pension at the Topeka^agency. Secretary Noble in view of re-^|s^rt of commission has himself quee^^lioucd Mr. Smith as to the facto attending^tlu* re rating. Tin* report also contk -^na^S.piires es|m-eialIy for his action in making^cases sptsrinl. It states that Squires pos^^sesses tli.^ stamp of Tanner as commis^^sioner and affixed it to popcrs. without tlie^commissioner's knowledge in a number of^such cases. A very large numfaeris given^and Commissioner Tanner is criticised^for his carelessness in thus entrusting^his official prerogative to a mere private^secretary who violntcd tlie confidence re-^poHcd in him. Tlie names of pension^ottlcinls who causexl themselves to be re-^rat.si, form n conspicuous part of the re-
Kort.Several were discharged at tin- time^y Secretary Nofale and they now point to^the fact tliut one who received the largest^amount of all deputy commissioners is^still in nlflce. A member of tlie board who^made the investigation intimated to a re-^isirter that tin* chief culprits were still in^jiositiou but would soon follow Tanner^into privute life.
Fx-PeiisiouComissioner Tanner admit^^ted to the ass^M-iatcd press that the letter^iiurissrtiug to he his, telegraphed from^Caldwell, Ohio, is genuine. He says it^was written in confidence. He believed it^was stolen. This evening Mr. Tanner^telegraphed to private Dulaell to know^whether his letter had been stolen or had^reached the public in some other manner.
S|s-akingto a reporter for a local pa|s-r^regarding tlu-rerutuig of deputy commis^^sioner Smith. Tanner said all the rerating^cuses came Is-forc him last May and while^the matter wus under discussion there^were present in his office (general Lew^Wallace, tieiierul Barniim, of New York^ami u iloaen ncwsou|s*r men. There was^not. he says the slightest criticism as to^tlu- justice of rerutiug the pensions. That^of the deputy coumutsaiouer was with tlie^others and Tanner does not remember it^particularly. The commissioner d^si-|ined^to discuss his letter or report of tlie inves^^tigating committee which has not yet been^made public.
