?CHINESE FRAUDfl MADE EAST?A DIVERS FIND-NOTES AND COMMENTS. Thy TKLEr.RArit to the TKiBrxr.i San Fran* isco, Feb. 10.?lt lias been discovered *by tho officials of the Chinese Registration lbi reau that Hts dray art opens Um 'l""r to many fraud*-, despite thc excessive care taken to guard against them. There is nothing to prevent the <"hinf"?o fr.nii ra-i-iF-ta-rm-- i:i several I iwns and then adisp .sin-- of duplicate c-ertlfk-a.es t.i China men wh".-" races *-esemble the photographs.

Although efforts ar. made to Identify ench bolder by personal marks, the Offtdala admit that portraits an.l marks cannot prevent fraudulent Impersonation. Even noars can be ma le I."der tn Hong Kong and applicants thus titted t" pass even searching In? quiry at this port. Judging by the keen desire shown hy tbousandB of ('him se in Hong Kong ami ("ant.>n t-> enter this country, lhere ls .sure to be much fraud in this certificate business. I Some relics of the sunken steamer Hrothor Jonathan have been brought here by a diver, john F. Byan, win. asserts that he lias located the ship ami found th,' "reties on her deck. The steamer sunk nearly twenty years ago off the California Coast Dear Crescent City, carry? ing down IM passengers and crew and over one million dollars treasure. Twelve attempts have been made to locate the wreck, but none prover! successful. Ryan says that an assistant engineer of the Bteamer, Who was one of the seventeen survivors, pave him the Clew t'> the location of the wreck, and that recently he veriii'd this Information. He declares that the vessel is In very still water, and that her Umbers < are sound, as .she ls below the level of usual submarln" Insects. He is confident be ran raise the vessel, but those who have had experience j differ with him. Cold rains and bitter winds have combined to make this one of the most disagreeable weeks of the winter. Yet the attendance at the Mid? winter Fair ha-s .ranged from 7,000 to 12.000 daily. Most of the exhibits are now in place, and the vegetation is growing more beautiful every day. The expulsion a.f Hubert II. Bancroft, the his? torian Of the Pacific States, by the Society ..f california Pioneers, is very tardy revenge for hi* plain-speaking comment on Fremont, suttor anal other men whom the pioneers hold In high honor. Bancroft gathered evidence ahowbig that Fre? mont never received instructions fruin the Gov? ernment which he claimed to receive. He also proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that | Suttor had no claim to the military title he need, Hnd on very small capital ha> bought an enor? mous property from the Russians which he m ver could hat.- paid for. Bancroft didn't mince j words in discussing the acts of Fremont and Suttor But he was n.it half so hitter in his comment as Professor J .slab Royce In his history Of California, in the American Commonwealth Series Han. toft ls a peculiar man, with Strong likes and dislikes, but If he deserved expulsion from the Pioneer Society, lt seems as though thlfl action Bhould I ave ben taken a de, ade ago, when the books lirst appeared, and not al this late day. Chinatown waa beautifully decorated this week In honor of the New-Tear's festival, but those who hav.- observed similar celebrations in the past declared that the pinch of hard times was to be seen on every hand. Many vacant stores are to be seen iti the quarter, and merchants complain that business is bs L When work is plenty and wagefl arc food the China? man spends money liberally for the r.m.fI things nf life, but he is a rigid economist in bad times. and this ls the secret of the great shrinkage In Chinatown trade. Among the disreputable people whom the Mid? winter Fair has attracted are dealers in obscene pictures and books, who have tried to circulate their wares in the public schools. Their scheme was promptly nipped in the hud. The proprie? tors raf a new bookstore on Market-st also dis? played flash pictures, but they w*re chastened hy the police, who raided the place and car? ried away a wagon-load of objectionable matter. The "Society for Suppression ot Vice is -rigorously at work, but laxity in enforcing ordinances snakes Its labors very hard. Among the deatns of the week was that of i Gustave Leipnltz, known for forty years in San Francisca as "The Snake Doctor." He kept a drugstore, in a show window of which were always big rattlesnakes an.l other venomous reptiles. Leipnlta handled these pets without fear. He was very charitable, and marie thou- , sands of free prescriptions every year. The bursting of ;? great meteor in the Nevada desert has created much Interest among scientific men, but it la doubtful whether any large aped men win i>r- aeeured because of the remoteness of ' the place and the deep snow. The explosion "f the meteor was attended by many of the pbs- i noroens of an earthquake. FUNNY RHODE ISLAND DEMOCRATS. SUET STILT. KBET I'P THE LCOIRLATIVg FARCE, PIT ARE PREPARING Tai SURRENDER Providence, R. I., Feb. 10 (Special-).?Indications seem to point lo s more or less graceful backdown on the part of the Dem eratic leaders in the House of Representatlvi - Representative Honey, chair? man of the Judiciary Committee, ta., which body the Governor's mi isace was referred unread, made u long and remarkable report this week, in which hs Bald that D. Russell Brown was still <: ivernor a.! the Btate by reason of the hold-over provision in the Constitution; bul urged that h<- iras wrong? fully holding tiii*. position by reason of the refusal of the Senate to ji In the House in Grand Commit? tee. H<* re- imnv le I lhal Ihe message of the G iv? ernor for thal n aa >n be returned l ? ihe Bi nate un? read. The minority of ibe Judiciary Committee to <l.iy submitted their report, In which ihey went over the leg il questions involved In the present etralne 1 Bit USI lon. They considered that such a disposition of tne Governor's message as is recom ma-nded In the report of the majority of the Ju? diciary Committee appears i > be Inconsistent with the dignity of the House snd the respect which is ' due the head of the executive department of the Government. They therefore recommended lhal the ?weenga bs received by the Houae, read snd ordered to be printed |_ the usa,il manner. This whole question will be debated by the House on Wednes? day. The message will probably be sent to the ??nate unread by a strict party vote Hut that ls about as for na the Democracy will pet In their programme of defiance of the Governor and the Senate. Their much boasted Intention .if refu?,n< to pass the Appropriation bill h.is probably l-'-en | abandoned, lt la stated thnt assurances have been j Riven th" Republicans that the Appropriation bill ' will be passed In the regular auder a.f things, and ; that there will be n i necessity on the iiart ..f the ?Governor again to exi rclaa his constitutional pow? ers in adjourning Um General Assembly. ll ;s said lhat OS Tuesday n-xt the Mons-, win send up another resumion Inviting the Benate to ?join in Grand Committee, and that Senator Miller ; will deliver a carefully prepared argument in favor of accepting the Invitation. The Benate will, a-a usual, r.-fu?c. ai. i ti;, b probably both housefl will aettle down to the routine work ..f th** aeaaios, and egree lo leave the whole question te be settled In the coming Btate election.
