In the case of Lee Loy, charged with gross cheat, the indictment was quashed. A demurrer was entered by A. G. M. Robertson and F. M.

THE MB CLAIMS ARE PRO BATED THE 1G1TDDE OF "PAKA 1" THE ELABORATE CALCULATIONS NEC ESSARY BEFORE THE $1,000,000 CAN BE PAID OUT ARE NOW ALL COM PLETED AND THE CERTIFIED RECORD GOES TO TREASURY AGENT McLENNAN HOW IT WAS DONE. The complete statement of sums clue fire claimants, from the mil lion dollars cash and from the bond issue, was finished on Saturday by Dies aim a lorce employed under nun, and turned over to secre tary Carter, and today it goes to Treasury Agent McLennan .with the Governor's certification. The record' as made up now, all in one b m.Ic, shows the number and amount of each claiir, the amount paid, amount due and the percentage of that amount to be paid from the mil lion dollars. McLennan will now proceed to make out drafts. The work of making the calculations was turned over to Abies and he had two sets of men working on it day and night, with an adding machine. The work was done bv a system which enabled three men to go through the list at once and all was done in a single week The mil lion dollars is not an even 75 per cent of the whole amount of claims, but is just 75.422989 per cent, hence the calculation was quite elaborate, but at the conclusion of the work the adding machine showed an even million. The first thing Mr. Abies did was to establish the percentage of each claim to be paid from the million dollars of cash and the proportion 1 3 be paid from the bonds. This calculation was carried out to six deci mal places establishing the percentage at 7:422898. The calculation!! could have been made by multiplying the amount of each claim by this percentage. But that would have involved a multitude of multiplica tions and taken an immense amount of time. Mr. Abies devised a much speedier and simpler method, and one in which speed increased as the accountants became familiar with it. His method consisted in making sixty-four multiplications with this percentage as the multiplier, which gave him the fpllowing table, the results being brought to the nearest cent, the decimals in these 'calcu lations not being carried beyond the second place, as there would be no advantage m it. Having established this table, the remainder of the computations were simple additions, and in this the use of an adding machine greatly facilitated matters.

Suppose the amount of the award as shown by the record of the Fire Claims Commission Was, $1,567.26. Ten per cent of this, the amount already paid by the Territory would be $156.72, leaving $1,410.54 as the amount still to ba paid of which 75.422989 per cent is to be paid out of the $1,000,000. rhe table shows that the percentage of $1,000 is $754.23; of $400, $301.- 69; of $10, $7.54; of $.50, $.38; and of $.04, $.03. Adding all these upi $754.23, $301.69, $7.54, $.38, and $:o3, makes $1,063.87 payable in cash' out of the $1,000,000 in cash, and substracting it from the .amount of Ihe whole claim due leaves $346.67 payable from the bonds. In this way the work could be divided into shifts. One man read off the amounts of the claims to anothenvho had the table before him, and in turn read off the amounts shown by the table as in the illustra tion above, to a man at the adding machine, or to an adept at figures who set them down and added them up almost as quickly as they were called off. In this way the whole 6,748 claims were pro rated. But of course the total amount of these additions must come oul exactly $1,000,000, whereas there were 6,748 separate calculations car ried out in effect to six decimal places, so that of course there were some trifling fractions of error of which no account was taken. How trifling these fractions of error were, is shown by the fact that on the first addition of the 6,748 claims' as pro rated, ahcre was only a dif ference of 14 cents between 'what it was and what it should have been. This error of 14 cents was then corrected -by yoing ba.ck through thci long list of claims and finding those where the error of difference ap- proached nearest to one cent and adding or substracting one cent as the case might be. In this way, every claim was brought as nearly mathe matically correct as it was possible to do using a percentage factor car ried out to six decimal places, and as far as practical affairs are concern ed, absolutely correct. If in paying out the $1,000,000, Treasury Agent McLennan uses cent pieces in making change, the million dollars will come out exactly even. This is to say, when he has paid the last of the 6,748 claims tho last penny pf the million dollars will have been paid out. With the table as herein published,. any claimant can figure out ex actly how much to a cent, the certified record as it goes to Treasury Agent McLennan, will show he is entitled to out of the $1,000,000 that Mr. McLennan brought down with him. - ' All this work was done, in exactly a week. It was, turned over to L. C. Abies one Saturday by Secretary of the Territory Carter, and it was turned back to the Secretary completed, the next Saturday. Hut it took continuous work throughout nearly twenty-four hours a day to do it. IT IS THE GAMBLING GAME KNOWN IN SAN FRANCISCO AS "CHINESE LOTTERY," AND PLAYED THERE TO AN" ENORMOUS EXTENT WITH AN ELABORATE SYSTEM OF DEFENCE AGAINST THE POLICE. TONG KAI IS ARRAIGNED CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTED BRI BERY OF DEPUTY iTTORN GENERAL PETERS. Tong Kal, the alleged agent of the paka plo gamblers, who was arrested yesterday afternoon at the Attorney Gen(ra1'8 olllce, waa 'arraigned this mpmlng before Judge Wilcox to nnswer to a charge of having attempted to 'bribe Deputy Attorney General E. C. Peters for protection to 4he game that the alleged Chinese employers of Tong were reported to bo desirous of starting up. The defendant was charged with vio lating Section 265 of the Penal Laws. This section Is as follows "Whoever corruptly gives or promises to any exe cutive, legislative or Judicial officer, or to any master In chancery, Juror, ap praiser, referee, arbitrator or umpire, any gift, gratuity, service or benefit, with Intent to Influence his vote, Judg ment, opinion, decision or other acts as suoh n any case, question, proceeding or matter pending, or that may by law come or be brought before him In his capacity as aforesaid, shall be pun ished by Imprisonment at hard labor not more than two years, or by line not exceeding Ave hundrpd dollars." The defendant was represented by his attorney F, M. Brooks. On motion of Brooks a continuance until Wednesday was granted. That a Chinese hui should be ready to make such an offer as $G,oocv a month bribe money for the privilege of running paka pio games, a was done yesterday, was a startler to the community and could hardly; be credited by some. Few people are awaic of the magnitude of thcr gambling business in Chinatown and of how much Io.m was being sus tained by the gambling ring by reason of the suspension of their busi ness. Tong Kai, the man arrested, was one of those arrested and prose cuted by Andrews a few weeks ago and who paid $2:50 fine imposed by Judge Wilcox. Paka pio is known in San hrancisco as Chinese lottery and is play ed there on a large scale. Behind many of the finest Chinese retail and wholesale stores in that city arc lottery outfits, in which six organized companies operate regularly, with two drawings a day. All over China town arc stores, barber shops and restaurants which are entrances to lottery dens behind them. In most cases there arc lengthy alleys and hallways to be traversed, with heavy, rivctted doors to be opened one after the other when the proper signal is given. The doors are often of iron and barred so that the heaviest axes might attack them unsuccess fully for a long time, and there are peep holes. The police have usually found that a raid in force was useless, for by the time the last barred and bolted door was down the evidences of a lottery disappeared. The Ho l'olulu gamblers, running with more freedom, have not yet had to adopt such precautions, but the day of the secret password and the iron doors with "outside guards" is apparently drawing near. m m & & m m b fiiii ft 3 m & m & n Mb $ m m a m m n UMLff ft n m m m mm A SAMPLE PAKA PIO TICKET, FROM A TICKET PLAYEE?
