Officials of the Oceanic Steamship Com
pany on the dock and aboard the steam
ship Alameda will feel considerably re
lieved this morning when the $2,700,000
worth of golden sovereigns stowed in the
after steerage are removed to the Mint.
The steamer did not get alongside the
dock until after banking hours on Satur
day, so that the treasure had to be left
on board over Sunday. The treasure is
the most valuable that ever came to this
port from Australia and comes very near
ly being the most valuable that ever
crossed the Pacific. The responsibility of
guarding it is very great.
A deck boy by the name of Colburn, a
strapping youth of 20, was entrusted with
the duty of keeping guard at night on
the way across. Just why he was se
lected nobody aboard the ship seems to
know, except that he is known to be per
fectly honest and does not seem to know
what fear means. Every night during the
trip across ColBurn sat on the steerage
hatch with a revolver In his hand and
neither passengers nor crew were per
mitted to visit that portion of the ship.
Before entering and after leaving every
port of call on the voyage the hatch was
orcned and the treasure boxes counted
and carefully inspected to see that, the
seals had not been tampered with.
Yesterday the guard of customs officers
was doubled on the Alameda. Two police
men also stooa watch at the gang plank
and none except the ship's orncers were
allowed on the dock. \\ nen the treasure
was placed aboard at Sydney it is said
that more than a score of detectives and
police officers in citizen's clothes mingled
with the crowd on the dock.
Sailor Falls From Aloft.
The schooner Compeer, which sailed Sat
urday w.ith a big cargo for Pago Pago, re
turned to port yesterday to land William
Doyle, an able seaman, who fell from aloft
to the deck soon after the vessel had
cleared the Heads, sustaining a compound
fracture of the leg. The injured man was
taken to the Marine Hospital. As soon
as Captain Larsen can secure another
man to tajce l>oyle's place the Compeer
will continue her voyage.
Hancock Finally Gets Away.
The transport Hancock finally got away
for Taku yesterday morning, passing out
through the heads about 10 o'clock. She
got away from the dock Boon after mid
night, but dropped anchor in the stream.
Captain Struve preferring- to wait for
daylight. There was "a hot old time"
aboard all night, because many of the
marines had managed to get whisky
aboard and proceeded to stow it away
before the authorities had time to search
the ship. There were several fights and
one or two men were placed In the brig
to sober up and keep out of trouble. It
was fortunate for many of the marines
that the transport was delayed, for they
had found boon companions uptown and
made a night of it. The boatmen had
plenty to do all night taking the strag
Shag Bock Is No More.
An official surve*- has been 1 made of Shag

vey demonstrated that there is thirty feet
of water over the rock at extreme low
tide, which is more than was expected
when the work of blowing up the obstruc
tion was attempted.
Schooner Commerce Launched.
The four-masted schooner Commerce
was successfully launched from Hay &
Wrirht's shipyard at Alameda Point Sat
urday afternoon. She is a sister ship of
the Philippine, Expansion and Luzon.
Miss Nellie von der Merden. the daugh
ter of D. von der Merden, one of the own
ers of the new vessel, christened the Com
merce as she slid from the ways. The
schooner is owned by Martin Sanders,
Henry Klrchman. S. Forter and others.
The Commerce, is a little larger than her
sister ships and the largest sailing vesel
ever built at Hay & Wright's shipyard.
Tellus Ready to Dock.
The steamer Tellus. which was In col
lision with the Belgian King, has been
pumped out and will go to the drydock to
day. It was necessary to use. a special
pumping plant on a barge alongside of the
big collier to get the water out. It can
now be seen that the Tellus was cut down

against T. L. Reed, president of the Reed

Pitney, stockholders of the Reed Crude
Oil Company. The Los Angeles Times
gives the following account:
"Messrs. Roberts and Pitney want their
interests in the Section Thirty-four Fuel

the Reed Oil Company. The Section
Thirty-four Fuel and Oil Company was
composed of Air. Reed, his two sons and
Messrs. Roberts and Pitney. It is alleged
that the members of the company dele
gated authority to Mr. Reed to sell their
holdings to the Reed Oil Company. The
deal wiis consummated and it was under
stood that the land, which was quite ex
tensive, brought $20 an acre and no more.
Now it is further nlleged that at the time
of the absorption of the Keed Oil Com
pany's interests by the Reed Crude Oil
Company, the disclosure was made that,
besiues getting $20 an acre for section 34,
owned by the Fuel and Oil Company.
Mr. Reed had obtained besides a.

"At the Government Land Office In Los
Angeles it is reported that since Judge
Rosa rendered his decision regarding
scripping, there has been an Increase in
the number of claims tiled in that office
ostensibly for agricultural purposes but
evidently • to cover oil prospects
This is taken as indicating a belief that
an agricultural claim Is preferred bv
many people to a placer mining claim for
holding oil land found In the public do
main. As far as can be ascertained,
there Is little disposition to make these
filings supplemental to previous filings as
mineral land, though the records of the
office do not cover mineral claims, and
consequently the Land Office officials do
not speak authoritatively on that subject.
It is believed, however, that most of the
claims are being filed on new discoveries
of oil prospects. It is stated that home
stead claims are given the preference over
scripping claims, because it is cheaper and
is fully as effective where the land is
classed as fit for agricultural purposes."

THE officials of the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association In this
city have addressed a communication to the people of the United States
vv...ch is of unusual Interest at this time. It is especially novel as being
the official utterance of the powerful organization known as the Chinese
Six Companies. Rarely does any organization of its Ftrenjrlh address lt-
to the public directly, almost invariably finding some other mode of convey
ir.p to the outside world any matter it wishes mnde public. The communica
tion takes the form of a set of resolutions, as follows:

Ifive expression to the American public of the
views which It holds regarding the Chinete-
Western conditions bo far as they appertain to
the people under our purview or jurisdiction.
No Tartars in America,
First, we desire to accentuate the fact that
the people from China resident within the United
ttates are cZl Chinese. None of them are Tar
tars nor Manchuria ns. They are from the
Kwang Tur^g province of Southern China, of
vhich Canton Is the chW city and Hcngkong
the port of er.try. The Uovernment of China is
not Chinese but Manchurian. beln^ the victor
of a Jormer conquest of the Chinese. This con
quest occurred at a period so remote in our his
tory that the Chinese have long peacefully sub
mitted to the rule ot the Manchus, and while
there is always a certain dopree of feeling and
frictloa among jartiefe In China over the dis
criminations made by the Manchu rules agaia^t
the Chinese in repard to the inelipibility of the
Utter to hold certain offices, yet it may be
laid that for many years the nation has, com
fortably or uncomfortably, rested as a. whole
unj»r the Manciurian rule.
The population of China, contrary to the
crinion held in the west, is exceedingly indis-
I'osefi to travel. They are a non-emigrating
ji>-. lie; a people for the most part who never
ror»ve rfuririE their whole lives a. distance of
tarty miles away from the place of their birth.
liather than remove from their native soil to
take up residence elsewhere the Chinese popu
lation as a whole would rather meet death:
and In fact thousands of them do at periods
calmly meet cieatn in districts etneken by
famine rather than leave those places and re
s >rt to adjacent localities of comparative plen
ty, which they mifcht readily do by merely ris-
Iriir and pmoeedlac »n foot.

a* we deplore and denounce the fact, it is nev
ertheless true that there has actually prown
up lr. China among a considerable percentage,
especially cf the northern population, a distrust
cf the westfra peoples, and this distrust art
fully manipulated by politicians, may be read
ily fanned into hatred o£ those against w-h.->m

teen occasioned by the seizure of the territory
of China which certain ¦Testers nations have
imposed upon the <»mj'ire ar.1 its people. The
explicit expression of this malice is apparent,
iarticuiarly against the missionary element
within the country.
The feeling of outrage which ha« attended
the loss ni pieces of the empire has. therefore.
drome bound up and associated with the na

every enlightened mind will recognize that the
missionaries have conferred a vast and Im
measurable benefit upon those parts of China
¦which they have favored with th-»ir presence
arid their work, and the view taken by the
, anti-foreign element that the re^ldf'nce of the
ml^sioTiarieg will cause a dissolution of the em

staff of the army for some time and the
conclusions formed from an exhaustive
study of the situation have resulted' in
the issuance of the following order from
the office of the United States Military
Governor in the Philippine Islands:
In view of the fact that a large number of
people in these Islands are aifllcted with lep
rosy and have in consequence become a menace
to public health, and lcr the purpose of initi
ating measures for preventing the further
spread of this disease and eventually stamping
it out of existence, a board of officers la hereby
appointed to select an inland for the segre
gation of lepers, to prepare plans and estimates
tor suitable buildings thereon, to submit an
estimate of salaries for the necessary officials
and employes, and to nx the ration and other
allowance for the support of such leper colony.
