LONDON, September *15.?London's
Chinatown is fast disappearing:. Four
years ago 2.000 Chinese seamen were
living within a stone's throw of the
West India dock gates. Now it is
doubtful whether there are 700, says
the Daily News.
During the war London's Chinatown
ha? its most prosperious days, for
quite a number of British ships were
manned by Chinese crews. But when
the war ended the edict went forth
"British crews for British ships." I
and as the Chinamen were paid olt
they either went back to China or to
some other country where their labor
was in demand.
The result was that Chinese traders
In Chinatown began to suffer, and
one after another had to put up their
shutters. Then suddenly there came
a boom. A beautiful actress died
while attending an opium smoking
party. Stories were printed about the
thrills to be experienced In Chinese
opium dens and public attention was
focused on the sinister alleys and byAavs
