These Chinamen have been gathced at li'-TpooI. and are said to be coming to tals country In small partle". Instead of In ono largo band, a- originally arranged They were lo be received at Halifax and transferred from lh.ro bv acm of 111" smugglers to St ThoniHs.

It Is supposed lo be several hun dred dollar a Chinaman It Is hardly thought tho smugglers would paj the ex panses of getting tho Chinamen from their country" to Liverpool. So. it is presumed, someone in tho country of Tsi-An has h"Ipcd a:h would-ba resident of the United States to $M or & to make the attempt for breaking in. Just how strong tho gang- of smugglers nnd the ramifications of It aro can le Imagined -when It Is announced that It is planned to bring manv hundreds of China men over tho Canadian border, and trat there, is a well defined usp'cion that the rarnt i-nir is Implicated in tho attempts, to set the Chinimen into the United Blatcs bv way of Merico SARGENT INVESTIGATED Commissioner Sargent bpnt seve-al 3a in Canada two weeks ago making an Investigation Into the doings of tho smug glers there.

While in the South he organized a corps of Rough Riders to patrol tho line in the rparsply etllcil district, to head oil parties of Chinese coming this -waj. While In Canada ho increased tha force of men there. Tho result of it nil Is that the attempts of the smugglers have been foiled by the vigilance of tho immigration authorities, and the fortune the Chinamen have spsnt to get in has been lost " 'The Chinamen will bo arrested ns rap idly as they appear. Tho officers hope they wilt at the same time b able to land soma of tho white smugglers -, Commissions Sargent and his subor dinates aro -very reticent when a&ted about the doings of the gang, preferring to wait lcr more developments before giv ing up the facts they have.
