GLIMPSES OF CUSTOM HOUSE LIFE
The Great Building Wherein Intelligence
Copes with Conning ami the Honest
Officer Sharpen HU Wit Combating
with the Shrewd Swindler.
In Wall street. New York city, there Is
no place more Interesting t han the queer,
gloomy and sullen looking Custom House.
In its gloomy recesses there are every day
enacted many little comedies, and some-
THE XEW YORK CrsTOM HOUSE,
times a tragetly. Drnprinfr in the other
day for a chat with, Mr. llickey, who has
charge of the main room of the "bureau
of seiznrea," I was struck with the appear
ance of several enormous packing cases,
each the size of a biglrunk, but made of
wickerwork, each marked in big letters

Pro N. D. & S. UIIS.
"These," said Mr. llickey, "are the
latest subjects of judicial inquiry, and
tbe stall in them cost f 10,000 in Kuroito
The actresses wanted to pass them as
personals,' but we discovered that the
corporation had hail them made to order,
so the treasurer of the theatre had to come
down with $7,400 in cash for the duties,
and they aren't through with it vet. Oh.
the goods are simply gorgeous! The ballet
certainly intended to 'outstrip all creation.'
The girls had got themselves up regardless
of expense, and it seems to be the nature
of women to hate a custom house and
custom house officers. A woman will do
almost anything to escape paving duty."
At this point in the conversation the
porters brought in another "seizure'
plain pine box, which some gentleman had
sworn through, or tried to, as his "per
sonal effects," but when opened it was
found to contain 1,000 cigars of a flavor so
delicate that it was a pleasure to sniff at
them. The biggest seizure made in recent
years was of 80,000 cigars, ingeniously
packed in imitations of ordinary ebony

wood blocks the cigars being the finest
made in Europe, so elegant that even at
auction und by wholesale they went for
over twenty cents apiece. On general rea
soning one would say that smuggling does
not pay when so many valuable seizures"
are made; but customs officials shake their
beads at this suggestion and intimate that
in spite of extraordinary vigilance the
smugglers get enongh stuff through to
make a general profit, deducting the occa
"The trouble is," said the old handler,
who has U en in the room ruanv years.
"the sharps are ever a get tin' up some new
way, and by the time we get onto it they've
got anotber way you wouldn't dream of.
But the women are the daisies they're the
ones to snake the stuff through."
"And what do they smuggle?"
"Well, nearly 11 of it 1s in diamonds,
jewelry, silks, shawls, ribbons, laces and
dressmakers' goods generally. It "bothers
the officers sometimes to tell what really
is unuaoio; ana t urate women well, they'll
.wear without a quiver that it is all 'per
sonals,' swear they've wore it on the other
aide. One woman had an underskirt made
up of the finest kind of lace f 100 worth, I
believe and it was by the littlest kind of
an accident she was caught. Wouldn't
have happened again in ten thousand
While he talked there came in a delega
tion of grave and gray spectacled gentle
men to "swear through" some Egyptian
and Pompeian relics, subscribing them
selves as officials of the "Society of Egypt
ological Research;" they took oath that
the articles were of no intrinsic value and
not for sale, and went away with tuuw In
high good humoh.
The biggest "seizure" in a small space
made for many years was of Mexican dia
monds set in a curiously chased silver
band the whole valued at $13,000. These
were reclaimed, and, after much discussion
and many appeals to higher authority, the
owners were allowed to receive them with
ont penalty as "personals." . "Seizures" of
the value of to.OUO are common, and a few
have occurred of the valu of $20,000 and
upwards. A package of luces, valued at
4,000, is soon to lie sold at auction. The
lady who had tried to get them through
pleaded guilty without a contest and paid a
fine of $.VK), besides forfeiting the goods.
"But she'll try it again," said the old
handler "yes, sir, you can bet she'll try it
No one about the custom house knows
the amount of the biggest seizure ever
made, and to find out would require a
search through record books far more vo
luminous than The Congressional Globe;
but there is an accepted tradition that a
Spaniard many years ago got through safe
ly with $SO,000 worth of diamonds, watches
and jewelry. The authorities afterwards
proved, the amount and facts, but it was
too laJe,Some sixty .years ago a Cuban
named Carol ino Estradas was convicted" on
a charge of murdering a woman who had
been his mistress and who hd stolen his
diamonds. It was first proved that he had
obtained the diamonds by fraud; then he
proved that they were family property In
Cuba long before; then the prosecution
proved a third story, and on appeal to the
customs books for some evidence none ap
peared. Then the question arose as to
whether he had smuggled the diamonds,
and it was proved that he had. Last of all,
still another account was proved, and as
Estradas about that time died in prison
the problem remains among the Insoluble.
That there were at least three sets of Jer
juriea is certain, but which was which no
man can tell.
A few years ago a family of the plain
middle class with a few trunks and boxes
rtOTfNUA OF THE CUSTOM HOUSE.
had just pussed inspection when theofficial
undertook to le familiarly friendly with
one of the boys who seemed more reserved
than tlie rest. To his surprise the boy
seemed afraid of him, and when he play
fully caught at him the boy "jnmped stiff
legged," as jockeys say. He could scarcely
bend. Thinking it a peculiar deformity he
pressed the hid for an explanation when
the latter commenced crying. The mys
tery was soon solved. His clothing was
literally padded and stiffened with valu
ables of many kinds; he was incased in
wealth. Some clever rogues had during
the voyage induced the parents to consent
to the fraud and tutored the fcy well; but
he broke down at the critical moment and
they lost their property. In the days of the
chignon there was much more smuggling
of diamonds and jewelry than now; that
receptacle was too convenient to be neg
lected. Perhaps the roost interesting part of the
"seizure room" is that where mail pack
ages are stored from 200 to 800, or even
more, at once. Many people think they
can send small articles free in the mail,
and about Christmas time letters by the
hundred are seized containing rings, hair
jewelry, gold ornaments, bits of fine lace,
kid gloves and other tokens of affection.
These the consignee can recover by simply
paying the duty. Occasionally, however,
a "queer" book or picture is seized, and
there is no recovery. If a suspected letter
is registered, it is delivered to the con
signee, who must open It in the presence of
an official. It is rather odd that there
should ever have been smuggling in such
heavy 'and bulky articles as iron, timber
and the like; but it was done by disguising
When, for instance, "old scrap iron" was
admitted duty free the ingenious foreigner
soon found a method of "putting down"
the finest erf metal with a mixture that
made it look as if it were the refuse of a
blacksmith shop. Unknown thousands of
tons wore fraudulently entered thus before
the trick was discovered. Similarly when
sugar was graded by color the importers
learned, how to give a dark hue to the
finest grades without injury; but .now the
polanscope beats all that. All the old
tricks are exposed and can be defeated;
but who knows how many new tricks are
in operation? J, II. BEADLE.
Queer Matrimonial Experience.
Three times in twenty years August
Young has become tbe husband of the
same woman. In 1870 he married Miss
Emma C. Ensign, of Illinois, who was
only 14 years of age. They went to Fresno,
Cal., where he started in tbe shoe business.
After three years his wife got a divorce
for habitual intemperance and resumed
her maiden name. She tried another man,
but tired of him in five months, was di
vorced, and went back to Fresno, where
she remarried Young. They lived happily
until a few months ago, when the woman
went through the same performance. She
resumed her maiden name and went to
San Franeipn. Aim nfnin mMiraAt .nJ

Deafness is caused by an inflamed con

deafness is the result, and unless the in
