Nov. 13.— The Call will say tomorrow that Secretary Metcalf before leaving for Washington today confided to a few intimate friends that the sentiment of the peo ple of San Francisco, If not of the whole state, was opposed to allowing Japanese or Chinese children to mingle freely with Caucasian children In the public schsffta, and that it was likely that the statute providing that Asiatic children be taught In separate schools would be strengthened at the coming session of the legislature. The secretary said further, according to the Call, that It was his opinion as a lawyer that the treaty between the United States and Japan guaranteed to the children of Japan resident in this country the right to an education In the public schools without discrim ination, and on an equal plane with the children of the most favored na tions, and that he would so report to President Roosevelt. He was further of the opinion that the word "Mongolian," strictly Inter preted, meant natives of Mongolia; that the Japanese could not be brought under that designation^, and that the federal courts would declare the state law unconstitutional. CALIFORNIA IS ALSO AFTER STANDARD By Associated Press. SAN FRANCISCO. Nov. 13.— The Call today says: It became known In Federal j:ircles that recent locations of land in Kern county by agents of the Standard OH company have been made the subject of -investigation by government offi cials. As a result It is asserted that indictments will follow. The . land was taken up by the petroleum combine ostensibly for the gypsum deposits, but in reality for oil purposes. That the character of the land had been carefully studied Is shown by the fact that a flowing oil well has already been developed. The inquiry is being made through the office of United States Attorney Devlin of San Francisco. Federal agents have been at work for several weeks In Kern county. From their preliminary reports it is believed that the manner in which the land was secured will warrant Indict ments on the part of the Federal grand Jury.

CHINATOWN HARBORS PLACE OF PESTILENCE AND ABODE OF DEATH LAZAK HOUSE REEKLNG WITH FILTH Celestial^ Send Doomed Men Down to Die in Lethal Chamber Where Nameless Horrors Await Victims of Poppy Flowers Until Mercifully Claimed by Grim Beaper DOWN In the veYy heart of '.he wlioienalo district, nordrri'l l>y the tinmen of the Chinese on the north and west and south, and by the shimmering sands of the river bed on the east, lies the Los Angeles city of the dead, a tiny acre of ground, where seven dying wretches, bowed beneath the curse of the "White. Lady of the Poppy," await in misery the hour whrn the great Confucius shall call them to the everlasting rest. In Chinatown that plot is known aa the living- hell, and no man goes near it. No man speaks of It. do down in the elonely settled district, where the Celestial pats his slippered heels against the greasy walls and smokes the pipe of his forefathers, and ask where the Chinese death house Is, and you will receive a gaze o' blank amaze ment In return. Ask what you will of them, and the people from the sunny Orient will give, civil answer, but don't speak of the death house, for they fear it and will not talk of it. The death house has existed for years, unnoticed by health authorities' or by physicians, while the souls of the. doomed slipped forth from the tor tured todlen and stole softly away to the realms of rest. All Shun Lazar House The place in difficult to find, for it Is troubled with devils and death Is mas ter there. The grinning demons, which to the mmr 1 of the superstitious Celes tial ever hover near the dying, await ing the chance to snatch his soul and carry k to Inferno, abound there, and the black almond eyes of the Chinese turn gray with horror as they speak of what may be seen in the neighborhood after dark, for a few of the bolder of their number have been there and have returned with pigtails stiff with fear and eyes bulging from their heads at the weird sounds coming from the old brick walls. It is but a five minutes' ride from the very heart of the city, and yet ao ob scure that no white man nan ever known o£ Its exact location, and no Chinese has ever willingly told of It. Alight from a -Grand avenue car at the Plata otid plunge Into the Intricacies of the Chinatown district, and a five minutes' walk will take you to the death house. Down through the nar row Ferguson alley, to Alamedn, where the shrill blast of the-train whistles sends the fat little yellow babies hid ing behind their mothers' "silken pantaloons," on through the narrow streets to Apablasa, where old Charlie Jue tells your fortune for 10 cents, and then straight ahead through the gamb ling district, and you are at the gate way of the stricken city. You have seen sights that may be offensive, and the odor of burning grease and spattering duck giblets may have caused a feeling of distrust to enter your system, but that is Just in preparation for what the eyes of the white man have rarely seen. Sights of Horror Begin For the sand and alkali of the lower Apablasa gleam and shimmer in the midday sun as brightly as though the fairest scene of creation smiled upon them, and the modern' walls of the Bow Wong Wei building- look down upon the meaner dwellings as though all were well. That is Jußt the beginning of the dis trict. A turn to avoid the peddlers' wagons, on past the corral where the future soldiers and liberators of China nightly drill under American officers, and then turn to a forsaken lane to the north of the street, and the death village is reached. A tumble-down brick vault with quaint old Spanish spires stands sen tinel like at tha corner as though the spirits of the long since dead held car nival there and warned the curious away. As the visitors entered that little lane yesterday and walked along in the shade of a tumble-down fence and scraggly hedge of trees, an old man came from the gate of the building to Ihe east of the road and staggered out in the sunlight. He was an old celestial, pale and hideous to look upon. His clothing was tattered and filthy; one frayed suspender held up a ragged pair of overalls and a rough cotton shirt scarcely covered the lean brown breast. His feet were covered with sandals and. his limbs, horribly twisted with the grip of the grim paralysis, seemed bound in , directions other than those sought by their owner. One cramped hand clutched at a handful |of the filthy "yon she,", the ashes of the opium,' to be bought for a pittance or stolen on convenience and he mouthed and gummed at the black stuff and clacked . his broken lips in frightful smirks. , ■' :• ' ' , Foul Vultures Stands Guard Without ever glancing 'to right or left he staggered to a stone by ' the roadside and with many groans perched himself upon it,' looking for all the world like some fowl bird of 11 omen awaiting its victim. : And then for the first time he turned,, one skin ny claw with long and discolored rin ger nails reached up and pushed hack the tattered hat and the celestial looked at the visitors ' and ' grinned, toothlessly, and cackled. His hair, black and greasy, hung in snakellke ringlets about the weauoned face, ilia cheek bones protruded as though try ing to burst from the thin, sallow skin, and the eyes, deep set and black, rolled as though all the world was disgust ing to their vision and only the dreams of the "White Lady"-, would satisfy their craving. Such was the outer guard or that frightful place and ; v long - brown claw stretched • forth , and begged an. alms, then clutched In vici ous hurry at the piece of silver tossed him. ■ More grinning, which died •. oft into a mumbling like cry and the vis itors had hurried past. the gateway. The house ; was : set < well back in the yard," completely surrounded by I trees, and the gate hung limp from ita hinges as 'though it, i too, had .wearied' of the demands of thin life and like the hu PRICE: SINGLE COPY 5 CENTS man creature was sinking down Into the darkness of oblivion. Here Abide Living Dead A knock at the gate brought no re sponse, for It wan the city of the dead. A Imifl cull and more knocking only served to send a swarm of green (lies buzzing and droning from their husk ing places. The visitors hesitated no lohjrer but pußhed open the gate and walked In. The yard might be said to be clean. A stack of kindling, cut from cast-off barrel staves and broken boxes, was pl|p(l on one Bide of the yard. Va rious odds and ends and an unhealthy odor filled up the other voids in yard and air and the place looked as though no one had been there for some time. No dog barked a welcome; no eat, the common friend of the lonesome celes tial, stretched Itself lazily in the sun; no duck or goose waddled about in the shade. The place was dead, just as dead as though hundreds of miles away from nowhere. Some have called the place the Chi nese hospital, but that is Incorrect; it is no hospital. When ft celestial is stricken his friends examine him and If he has a chance he is sent to the county hospital generally to spend the remainder of his life there, for pa ralysis Is the common disease of the yellow man. When Insidious Flower Kills But when the grip of the poppy poison had sucked th« last drop of healthy blood from the veins of Its victim, when the bony hands grasp in vain weakness to lift the guttering pipe once more to the thin, purple lips and fail, then it is that the bones of the death devil rattle horribly behind the furniture and the victim, be he brother, father, cousin or friend, is dragged off to die in the city of the dead. lt is an old tradition and superstition among the yellow men that. if a man dies in a house that house Is accursed. lnstances have been known even in Los Angeles v where ; a , dying celestial has been dragged 1 from • a store or dwelling by. his. heels to the gutter < to. die there in peace . and . save the house from the presence of devils.' .','" •„ ' ./;':'.*. s These : are . the - poor emaciated • crea tures carried ,in the~a*jiu>«B« of ; night f T6nf' fh«7fp'luitf^f£nfr-.t6 the death house."

All the inmates, and there are now seven, are stricken with Incurable diseases of the most horrible nature, and it Is rare that any one is seen within 100 yards of the place. Death Hovers O'er Portal Yesterday as the visitors entered the yard an old man turned from a scrap heap of cast off clothing and looked at them with expressionless gaze, then turned back to his work. He was clothed In dirty overalls which scarcely covered his nakedness, his hair, gray and stubby, hung about his ears and h% had not the energy to push it from his eyes. Sores, dark purple splotches from head to foot, told of some dread oriental malady which was sucking the life from his veins. The old man had to be coaxed to show the visitors about. He waved to them that they might enter, but he was loath to move, and finally did so only with great pain and effort. They do not fear thieves In that city of the dead, for human souls, seven in num ber, are all that are left, and they are guarded jealously by the angel of Death. A step over a tiny threshold gave full view to the utter depths of filth and degradation of the death house. There were four dirty bunks stretched around the walls of the main room; four hard wooden bunks covered with bedding so smooth with ages of grease and dirt as to resemble polished leather. The odor was sickening, and the visitors started back In horror at the four bundles of bedding lying on those couches. A call failed to bring response, ami one visitor stepped forward and drew back the covering. The sight was hor rible. Clad in a filthy shirt, a celestial occupied the bed. His skin was so tightly drawn over his fleshless bones that It seemed about to burst. His yel low skull, hairless and polished from constant contact with the greasy cover ing, turned in listless movement and colorless eyes gazed upward. It was the poppy death, and a low guttural moan came from the man, and the covering was mercifully dropped back over his head. Opium Claims Victims The attendant stuttered out thftt the mun had once been a messenger of fate, a highbinder, with great Influence. But the wooing of the white lady had broken him. The streams of soft white vapor from the poppy pipe had claimed him, and with fast dimming eyes he awaited his call to the land of his fore fathers. The next victim was In the last stages oi consumption. His mind raved and he croaked out an uncanny snatch of chant that fairly chilled the blood. Three others were dying of poppy poison. Two were on a little elevation In a rear room of the shack, dying in (Continued on hig« Two.) <$> PHOTOGRAPHIC IIUIlii: 4 <§, ■ MUST CO BACK <$> 4 TO HER JAPAN' <$> <j> By Associated Press. <i> HAN KUANCIBCO, Nov.
