Chnrloy Tang is one of 1 colony of Chinos
farmers who raise curious crops on n pleco ut
Innd back of Steinway avenue Steinway Long
Island City known AS the Kouwenhoxcn I
farms KlncnHntttrday morning howover lie
has temporarily quit raising vegetables and
has been devoting all his time to burning
Joss sticks And making moon cakes He says
ho was attacked by three hideous devils
shortly after midnight of Friday who bound
him hand and foot and hung him from n
ratter of his hut and went away leaving him
swinging with his toes just scraping the floor
According to tho story told by Charley In an
awestruck tono to an Interpreter ho was
awakened from his sleep on tho night men
tioned by the door of his hut flying In with an
awful crash followed by three terrlblo looking
figures wearing black masks Before he had
time to recover from his fright a towel Wil
led over his eyes hr one of the devils whllo
fie second thrust a gg Into his mouth Al
though Chnrloy I broadshouldered and pow
erful he apparently was too much bewildered
and terrorstruck to make use of his strength
In another Instant his hands were solred and
pinioned behind his bock with the nld ot n
ploco otwnshllne and then he was hustled to
the centre of the room where a noose was
Bllpped over his head and I tightened
about his nock Tho other end of the
rope was run Our a rafter about six
cut above tho floor when the hapless China
man wan rained 1 up until tho tips of his toes
barely prevented him from strangling Then
the devils got down to tho real ohjoct of their
visit < and began turning the pockets of tholr
captive Insldo out As near as ho can recall It
luuley believes he had 1 nlid some smalt
chance In his pockets before the rold After
robbing their victim tho devils made n brief
Inspection of the hut Enraged at obtaining
so little booty for their labor thoy bolted oUt
I lite
of the hut without offering to release tho
lilnanmn who was suffering terrible agony
Ho had maintained stolid silence all through
the ordeal but now ho shouted and putting
forth I his strength he broke the ropes that
bound his arms and seizing the rope from
which he was suspended drew himself up
nod released the noose from ubnut his neck
A deep crease had boen cut around his neck
by the rope
Early that mornlne ha went to New York to
tell his friends of his adventure The scar
about his neck was offered a confirmatory
proof of his story and his friends finally came
to the conclusion that he had been maltreated
and robbed and yesterday the matter was re
ported to the Long Island City police Dete
tIre Kaxanngn wont to the hutand brought
away tile pieces of rope and the towel used by
the devils and he U now searching for the
iluvil themselves As they were all masked
and Charley a blindfolded before he cauelit
n cood glance at their outlines thA police say
It will be almost Impossible to Identify them i
they are arrested
tl The huts used by tha Chinese are built of
loose boards and covered with tar caper The
farmers usually live In Cairo but return to
New York during the winter months They all
carry knives and as it is known that thoy will
rtefonil themselves 1 attacked it Is seldom
they are molested I appears that Charley
had gone to ihe farm that day merely to ar
range for the spring work and It Is probable
the thieves were well acquainted with tha
I neighborhood knew ho was alone

Secretary Foster of tho Treasury passed a
Quiet morning roster Jay nt tho Fifth Avenue
lintel In this afternoon a number ot bank
1rcslilants and bankers rolled upon him and
later he went to the Union Leaauo Club Theo
ho met President Tarren ot tho tiallatln Bank
President Perkins of tho Importers and
Traders President Cannon of the Chase Na
tions and President linker of the first Nn
tlonnl Dunk Tho Bccretiiry talked with these
gentlemen about tho financial situation tho
gold cxpotts and tho action of the New York I
banks In transferring part of tholr surplus I
cold to tho United States HubTreasury
In Walt street I was elicited at this
discussion that a number of bank Presi
dents In Wall itroot believe tlmtthe Secretary
oven though his official life is to close within
threo weeks should take store under the
Itofundlng act to sell bonds to increase the
cold reserve tome of tho bank Iresldonts
with whom tho Secretary discussed this mat
ter wore very positive In this position Others
equally well Informed could not BOB how tho
Secretary could adopt such a line of boiler In
tho closing days of the Harrison Administra
Tho Secretary listened to all the arguments
And decided to visit tho SubTreasury at noon
todav and discuss the matter with a larger
number of bank Presidents and bankers I
mar be sot down an I foe that ho Is opposed
to selling bonds lint ho does not beitevo the
contingency has coins for the adoption of that
policy by him but ho Is ready to listen to nil
nreuments either for or against and that In
why hiss will remain In town over today and
discuss tho matter with tho bank Presidents
and others at the SubTreasury at noon The
Secretary believes thAt nltogathcr too much
emphasis has bnen put upon the notion ot the
bnnkH In transferring part of their cold to
Assistant Treasurer ItohertB Ho believed it
was u cood thing at tho time but ho does not
believe It was absolutely necessary to con
vince I financial community of the solidity
of tim Governments re ource
It WOK admitted that If III Seoiotnry decided
to sell bonds ho would have to act quickly
The Hecrotary hoer will not take any do
clslxe steps In the matter alone Ho will moot
the bank President and bankers tnday And
hearken to their views nnd lie will then com
municate thethe situation to President Harri
son It was very pointedly said last night
that If the Secretary and the President de
cided I thnt It would Rul good policy to sell
bonds thoy would not undertake such a meas
ure until they had communicated with Mr
Cleveland nnd his coming Secretary of the
Treasury Mr Carlisle One of tlioso who con
ferred with the hecrctary yesterday said
Tho situation Is not one In which politics
should be considered It Is ono that relates
to the food or the American public I IK a
business < iue tlnn entirely Tho demand for
a sale of bond has certnln merits and then
again the Interest of certain people In de
manding the idling ot bonds Is quite another
mlndlnl These questions will be considered
by the Secretary and tho bankers at the tub
Treasury tomorrow at noon 1 It turns out
that the situation demandit the advice ot Pres
ident harrison It will also turn out that the
financial advisers nf Mr Cleveland and Mr
Carlisle will Ito consulted
One bank President said that I It became
necessary tho Harrison Administration would
sell under tho Itolundlne act Slo000000 In
4 per cent bond otnethlnc had been Mid
nlout tolllne MOlXOfiUOOO of those bonds
This bank President did not think It necessary
to sell such an amount He believed that the
conference betwoon Mr Foster nnd tho bank
Presidents at the bubTreasury today would
clear the atmosphere In financial circle ex
hibit the motives of certain interested Indi
viduals and eventually end In quletlne an ap
prehension which has proceeded mostly iicut
VABniNOTOv Fob 12 Senator Sherman was
asked this afternoon If the hU ho Introduced
yesterday to authorize the Government to
Mil three per cent liveyear bonds to main
tain iipeclo resumption had any sig
Tho legislation l soucht be accomplished
said Mr hhormnn hIS for Its object the sav
ing ot money to the general Government That
U the whole thing briefly stated The its
sumption act took place at n time when we
could not borrow money at less than tour per
cent and It was thought to be a very success
ful operation when I was tho Secretary of the
Treasury to be able to float our bonds at those
figures When tho Ilenumptlon act took effect
the bonds authorized by the Funding act wore
drawing that nato of Interest oDd f omn of them I
creator Those worn tho fortyrear bonds at
four par cent the ultecnyonr bonds at four
and 1 halt per cent and the tonyear issue at
live per cent It Is well settled that under
that act tho Secretary of the Treasury < can If
he deems It necessary Issue bonds but whon
tho Funding act was passed no one thoucht i
that we could Issue our bonds at three per
cent and the object of thin amendment Itr
nuthoilzo tho Secretory Issue bonds at three
percent I he finds I necessary to do so It I
simply saves the Government the ona per
years cent of Interest And limits the bonds to five
larS Sherman In general conversation In
dicated thnt It would exceedingly bad policy
for tho United htntes to issue loneterm bonds
at such high rates of Interest ns that provided
in tho Resumption ncl4 4Gor5 per cent
simply to tide ovor what he and everybody
else felt to bo only a temporary exigency The
