REFUSE HIM ADMITTANCE New York Authorities Will Not Allow Wealthy Merchant to Land, Through Technicality. BY ASSOCIAIRD I'RESS. New York, Sept. 5.-Sam Ilonang, a Britis;h subject, who is said to be one of the wealthiest residents of the island of Demara, is held aboard the steamship Grenada, of the Trinidad line, and de nied a landing in this country by the im migration inspectors on the ground that it would be a violation of the Chinese exclusion act. llonang, who owns one of the largest cocoanut plantations on the island, de cided a few weeks ago that he would take a trip to the United States and Europe. Letters of identification to promi nent and wealthy persons all over the world were forwarded by his correspon dents and he set out on his voyage. Never Was in China. Iionang never has been in China. He was born in Demarara of Chinese parents. They were both British sub jects, so that the Chinese exclusion act did not figure in his plans. When the ship reached her dock at Long Island City the immigration in spectors held up the traveler, who finally called upon friends in New York for aid. The inspectors would not release him, however, and the papers, together with Honang's passports, were forwarded to the authorities at Washington. The vessel soon will be ready for her return passage and it is a question whether the captain of the Grenada, who is responsible for his passenger, under the terms of the exclusion act, will have to take him back to Dcmarara.

San Bernardino, Cal., Sept. 5.-Repre sentatives of the San Felipe ranch In dians were in town today, seeking legal advice in an endeavor to hold the lands they have occupied for a hundred years, but now have been ordered to vacate. It is a parallel case with the Warners' ranch Indians, who were mnoved to Pala a few weeks ago, with the difference that no place has been designated for the San Felipe redmen. The San Felipe ranch contains az,ooo acres in San Diego county and is wished for stock grazing. The lessees have long been endeavoring to induce the govern ment to move them, but the matter is now only taken up. TI.

MONEY HAS BEEN PUT UP Heavy Reward for Arrest of Any Who in Any Way Stop Trains Bearing United States Mail. While the railroads are exerting them selves to prevent holdups of their trains in Montana, it may be interesting to know that Uncle Sam is also an interested party, lest the would-be roJlbbers tamper with the Un iterl States mail. 'I he postoflice dcpart ment has a standing reward for the cap ture of any one impllicated in the robbery of mail trains. T'rhere is a sltanling reward issued over ,the signature of the postmaster general in "If these alleged train robbers bother the United States mail they will have the governmellnt after them good anti hard," said an at' ache of the Butte postollice. "This circular will give the pIllic an idea of the rewards that will be paid." Elliminating that part of the offer of reward relatiiiig to the robbery of mail wagons and pI,,i:ollices, the notice reads: '()ine thousand dollars for the arrest and conviction of any person, in alily United States court, WI the charge of robbingi the mails while being conveyed in any Imail car attached to a railway train, and in viola tion of the provisions set forth in the con cluding clause of Section 547J, Revised Statutes, the et.:ire section of which reads as follows: "Any person who shall rob any carrier, agent, or other person intrustaed with the nmail, of such mail, or any part thereof. shall le punishlable by ilmprisonllmtnt lat hard labor for not less than live years, and lot lmore than lo years ; andl if convicted a second time for a like ofelnse, or if, in ef fectiltg such robbery the first time, the rob her shall wountd the' lperson havinlg trls tody of the mail, or Iput his life in jeopardy by the use of dangerous wueaponls, such of fender shall be punishable by imltrisollment at hard labor for tile term of his natural life." * * * "Two hundred dollars for the arrest and conviction of any person, in any United States court, on the charge of larcetny of mail matt- or of any valuable tling contl tained therein while in the custody of any mail messenliger, licing conveyed to or from a railroad depot, or of the robbery of or larceny fromnt the nail while renmaining at any rialroad depot awaiting transfer. "For the arrest and conviction of any person in any United States court, as ac cessory in any of the a;forcnmeltioned of fenses; or for rceciving any molley or property stolen fromt a postoflice, or other wise, as provided in any of the foregoing offers of reward, the sane reward will be paid as for the arrest antd conviction of the principal offender. "Th'le postmaster or his subordinates iat any postofflice where a burglary or larceny may occur, are barred from receiving any of the above rewards for the arrest andl conviction of any party on the charge' of stealing from or robbing such postollice. T'he postoflice delpartmntet re.ervs thle right to refuse payment of a reward to any other ollicer of the United States un less the facds and circumstances in the case justify the same, of which facts the said department will be the sole judge. "The larceny from street letter boxes, or from Ioxes rented ill a postolfice, or frolll any public receptacle for mail matter, will lie regarded under this olfer of reward as of the same effect as the larceny fromt a postolfice proper. "The postullice department reserves the right to refuse payment of any claim for reward, when in its opinion there has been any collusion or improlper methods used to secure an arrest and conviction thereunder; and to allow only one reward where sev eral are arrested and convicted for the same offense, unless the circumstances en title the claimant to a reward in each case. "Special awards will be made for ar rests and convictions for offenses against the postal laws not specified in this offer of rewards, where in the opinion of the ,ostoflice department the facts justify the salmle. "These rewards will be paid to the per son or persons causing such arrests and convictions, upon presentation to the de partment of satisfactory documentary proof thereof, but no claim for any of the above rewards will be entertained by the depart nment unless presented within six months from the date of conviction. "All previous offers of reward are here by rescinded except as they may apply to cases in which arrests have already been made."

San Francisco, Sept. s.-In the trial of the case of the United States against Nai Nanamatsu, who is charged with the crime of smuggling, Judge de Haven ldelivered instructions to the jury, In which he in substance said that landing of the goods was necessary to constitute the crime of smuggling.

The reason assigned by Governor Sparks for the action is that he does not wish the arresting officers to be put to the trouble and expense of having to sue for the money, and he is detemnined, he says, that unless a check comes for the aniount due, the men will not be surrendered. GovernqF Pardee of California, on his part, declines to say what he will do in the matter until be is officially notified that the governor of Nevada refuses to lionir his requisition for the prisoners. Until then the authorities of this state are not inclined to credit the governor of Nevada with any desire or intention of refusing to honor the demands of Cali fornia. 6PECIAL RATEb TO COUNTY FAIR AT BILLINGS.
