San Francisco — a chapter that shall tell
where the ''fiends'' or "hop heads" buy
their "dope." In a general way it is easily
discovered that the victims of the "habit"
wend their weary steps toward Chinatown
for the drug. You can see them passing
up Dupont street any night, and often in
the daylight one is bold enough to go
forth and make the purchase necessary to
satisfy the morbid craving that will soon
induce nausea and cramps unless indul
gence is hastened.
Now, the laws are very strict concerning
the sale of opium in San Francisco. There
is a State law forbidding its sale except for
medical purposes, and a City ordinance
proscribing the sale of opium for any pur
pose or to any person except upon the
presentation of a physician's certificate.
The City ordinance, as abridged in a re
cent decision of the Supreme Court affirm
ing its validity, reads as follows:
The order was approved in July, 1889, and
Is numbered 2085.
Section 1 provides that it shall be unlawful
' for any apothecary * * * or any person
whatever to sell * * • to any person in the
City and County of San Francisco any opium
• * * except upon written prescription or
written order of a practicing physician, as
provided in this order, and except upon the
day of the date of said prescription or order.
Section 2 of the order provides that every
person selling opium, etc., must keep a book
and record therein the sale, name, age, sex,

color of the person receiving the poison, the
name and quantity thereof, as well as the
name of the physician and the name and resi
dence of the patient* and that there shall be
attached to the bottle or parcel containing the
article the name thereof, together with the
name of the physician, the name of the druggist
or other person who sells the article and his
place ot business.
Section 3 provides that the prescription or
order must be dated and signed l>ya physician,
who must be a graduate in medicine with a
diploma from a regularly constituted medical
institution, and must contain the name and
residence of the patient and the residence or
office of the physician.
Section 9 makes it a misdemeanor to violate
any provision of the order, punishable by fine
not exceeding $500 or by imprisonment not
exceeding six months, or Dy both such fine and
An act to regulate the sale of certain
poisonous substances, approved April 16,
1880, provided that it shall be unlawful for
any person to retail certain poiso.is, in
cluding opium, without labeling the bottle
or other package with the common name
of the article, together with the word poi
son, and the name and place of business of
the seller. The act makes it unlawful for
any person to retail any of the poisons
named unless upon due inquiry it is found
that the person receiving the same is
aware of its poisonous character and that
it is to be used for a legitimate purpose.
The act also requires a record to be Kept
stating substantially the facts required by
the order above named, and in addition
tnereto requires the seller to ascertain
wh ether the name and address given by
the person receiving the poison are the
true name and address and for that pur
pose to insist upon the person being
identified. Any violation of this act is
made a misdemeanor and is punishable as
There was a further order passed by the
Supervisors which permitted the sale of
opium to those who should procure a
license for that purpose at an expense of
from $50 to $150 a quarter. But this order
antedated the order of 18S9, and in the case
of ex parte Hong Shen, convicted of selling
opium under the latter ordinance, the Su
preme Court held that:
The language of order Xo. 2083 covers all
kinds of opium, and "any extract of opium or
production thereof * * * or any prepara
tion or compound of which any of these sub
stances, extracts or products is an element or
ingredient." There is no question, therefore,
that all orders in conflict therewith are re
So the gist of the whole matter is this:
The Supreme Court of California has held

OF EQUAL DATE WITH THE PURCHASE.
Let us see whether this law is enforced
in San Francisco.
WHERE "LI GEES" OF OPIUM WERE
PURCHASED IN CHINATOWN
FOR "THE CALL."
No; the laws proscribing the sale of
opium in San Francisco are not enforced.
In many places in Chinatown the initiate
can and continually do buy the drug with
out a physician's certificate. One day last
week The Call man and the slim, dark
eyed and hollow-chested young man who
' had previously led the way to the resorts
of the "hop heads" made a tour of China
: town for the purpose of buying opium.
Neither had a physician's prescription.
| But one of them had what is far more
j efficacious, an intimate knowledge of the
"fiends" and those who supply them with
i the drug.
The "dope" is usually sold either in
hop toys or li gees. The latter are for the
smaller quality. Fourteen of them were
purchased at as many different stores in
Chinatown. The li gee is either a 15-cent
or 2-5-cent package of second-class opium
i (always sold for the best), in which the
I drug— that looks and sruelis not unlike
black ana thick molasses— is put up in the
shells of small Chinese nuts and then
wrapped in manilla paper.
At all of the following places li gees
were purchased :
QUONG YOT LING, 10 Waverley place.
SHUN FOOK A: CO., «X5 Jackson street.
TAI Hi NO, 101H Dupont street.
MAN LEE, 709 Dupont street.
YE CHING, 739 Jackson street.
AH LEE YONG, 19 Sullivan alley. .

HONG SING YET KEE COMPANY, 63
MAN FOOK, 818 Jackson street.
QITONG WO CHONG KEE, 808 Jackson
SING KEE, 65 Spofford alley.
Without doubt there are several other
places in Chinatown. There is a Chinaman
on Stevenson street that has sold opium
there for a long time. Perhaps in his case
the police have not been so much at fault.
Some of Captain Short's men have arrested
and convicted this Chinaman no less than
pix times. And although the penalty pre
scribed by the law is very heavy, the cul
prit has always escaped, to go back again to
his odious trade, upon payment of a fine of
$20. This is a ridiculous penalty for the
offense charged and proven.
The landlord of 517 Bush street; Noble
Lovelev, the owner of Loveley's cottage on
Pine street, above Dupont; Mrs. Mary,
Kelley of 7il Jackson street, and the pro
prietor of the lodging-house at 110 Fourth
street, all claim that there is no opium
smoking allowed on their premises. They
say they are very careful in renting thefr
rooms and would not knowingly permit
an opium "fiend" in their houses. But a
"layout" is not a very extensive concern,
and can be easily smuggled into the room
without the knowledge of the landlord. It
does not follow, of course, that because a
"layout" or a "fiend" has been discovered
in this or that house that the landlord
thereof is a party to the offense — though in
many cases he is.

o'clock they were required to appear in Judge

them. For that reason the experiments were
postponed until this morning at the same hour.

PETITION TO CONGRESS
Prayer for the Passage of a
Labor Commissioner Fitzgerald
Wants Thousands of Names
on the Paper.
Deputy Labor Commissioner C. L. Dam
yesterday sent to the State tmnter at Sac
ramento to be printed the following peti
tion to Congress for the passage of an act
restricting or prohibiting the immigration
of Japanese laborers to this country:
San Francisco, Cal., Sept. 1, 1895.
To the Senate and House of Representatives of
Congress of the I'nited States: The undersigned
citizens of the United States, residing in the
State of California, most virtually interested
in the employment of white labor to the exclu
sion of the subjects of oriental empires, re
First— That the immigration of the subjects
of the Japanese empire Is the greatest danger
impending over the present and future welfare
of the white citizens of the State of California.
Second— That to the white laborer of Cali
fornia it is a matter of imperative necessity to
have this class of immigration restricted.
Third— That the habits and characteristics of
the Japanese as laborers tend to make thi'm a
far more dangerous class and a greater menace
to the welfare of white labor, as their ability to
subsist on a minimum amount prompts them
to accept the smallest rate of wages for work
performed, and they are therefore constantly
supplanting white labor.
Fourth— That not long since the matter of
Chinese immigration Decame so injurious that
the citizens arose and demanded relief from
Congress, which came in the form of an ex
clusion law, That the Japanese immigration is
assuming such proportions that it will soon
outrival that of the Chinese.
Fifth— That in the recent investigation of
the Japanese question by Labor Commissioner
Fitzgerald the testimony developed the fact
that of the 100,000 Japanese who could come
to California the Japanese Government would
permit the emigration of 30,000. Other testi- |
mony reveals the fact that the vast number of ■
conu-act laborers now in the Sandwich Islands |
stand ready to embark for California.
Sixth— That there are thousands of unem
ployed white laborers in California, ten thou
sand of whom are supplanted by Japanese la
In view of these facts we earnestly recom
mend that a restriction or exclusion law be
enacted which will prohibit the immigration
of Japanese laborers to the United States; and
your petitioners will ever pray.
Many copies of this petition will be dis
tributed throughout tne State for signa
tures. It is hoped that at least 200,000 sig
natures will be affixed to the memorial
before Congress meets in December. When
signed it will be forwarded to Congress
and to every member of Congress. It will
be accompanied by a memorial upon the
same subject, whicn will contain the La
bor Commissioners' report of the recent
Secretary Hough of Federal Labor Union
No. 5761 of Oakland sent a letter to the
bom missioners complaining that Supervisor
Talcott of Alameda County is violating the
State law by working men on the roads in
his district over hours. He also states
that the Supervisor underpays his men.
The matter will be investigated.
Yesterday over 400 men registered for
employment. Work was obtained for
nineteen men and twelve women.
Commissioner Fitzgerald left Sunday for
Los Angeles for the of his health,
He will spend a week in that city and
about two weeks on Santa Catalina Island.

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS
Solid Eight in Court Again
for Argument To-
BIG RISE IN THE TAX RATE.
Old City Hall to Be Rebuilt-Other
I tern 9— Vacation for a
The Solid Eight of the Board of Super
visors appeared all in a row before Judge
Hunt. Department 5 of the Superior
Court, yesterday morning, General Dick
inson, the attorney, being well up in
front, standing with his broad shoulders
and his answer and his demurrer directly
betwen them and justice— that is to say,
General Dickinson stated the situation
to Judge Hunt— about the conflict between
the order of the court which sent the case
to Department 10 and the stamp on the
complaint which consigned it to Depart
ment 5. Judge Slack had refused to hear
the case, and so here they were.
R. M. Smith, who brought the accusa
tion, took the -ground that the case be
longed to Department 10, and after some
discussion Judge Hunt made an order
sending it back to Judge Slack.
The whole party walked down the
corridor to Department 10, and stated the
case to Judge Slack. "Very well." said
his Honor, "I will hear tne case. Mr.
Smith, I understand you want to file an
"But I would like to argue that matter,"
said General Dickinson.
"Not as to his amending his complaint?"
"Yes. I think I can show your Honor
that he has no right to and so end this

"But if I can show your Honor that he
has no right to amend the complaint?"
"I cannot hear an argument until there
is a complaint."
"General Dickinson has got his criminal
and civil law tangled. But lam willing
that he should argue the matter if he
wishes," said Smith.
The court would not, however, and
Smith filed his new complaint. It is
different from the other only in the
strength of legal form and technicalities.
General Dickinson will file his demurrer
to this, and it will be argued probably this
The meeting of the board which took
place yesterday afternoon was character
ized by a discussion of the resolution fix
ing the rate of the tax levy and a very ma
terial amendment and lifting of that rate.
The rate, according to the provisions in
the report of the Finance Committee and
the resolution based on the same, was a
fraction above $1 47 on the $100 property
valuation. The estimated valuation, as
stated in the committee's report is $320,
--000,000. The total expenditures as the
committee reported upon them were
$6,093,583. but of this $1,386,000 will be
raised from other sources, the amount to
be raised by taxation being $4,707,583.
When the resolution based on this re
port came up for passace Supervisor Wag
ner called attention to the appropriation
for Golden Gate Park, $25*5,000. He moved
that it be raised to $300,000. The park, he
said, was the people's playground, and the
monev was necessary to carry out the
work in progress.
Hughes also favored the rise. Dimond
wanted the question to go over until the
meeting in September, but the motion to
make the appropriation $300,000 passed —
Dimond, Taylor and Hobbs voting "no."
Then Wagner called attention to the
appropriation for the Kearny-street City
As provided bv the resolution it is but
$48,000 to pay for the lots now owned by
private parties, which will have to be se
cured by condemnation proceedings, it
says, and which proceedings will doubtless
consume a great part of the present fiscal
Wagner moved that it be raised to the
full amount permitted by the act of the Leg
Dimond opposed this warmly. He
thought all tinkering with the resolutions
should be stopped for the present and un
til the Septemoer meeting, when the judg
ment of the people might be learned.
Supervisor Taylor, who had been called
to preside by Mayor Sutro, who had re
tired some time before now, called
Dimond to the chair. Taking his place on
the floor he made a long argument against
the increase. He reminded the members
of their party pledges to keep the appro
priations down. The building of a new
City Hall downtown at this time was ab
surd, he said. It was in the interest of a
few people and against that of the people.
But the rise was favored by the Solid
Eight, and they voted solidly for it.
Hirsch now called attention to the item
for the Dipsomaniac Hospital, $25,000, and
moved that it be lifted to $35,000.
Even Dunker couldn't stand this, and he
forsook the eight when it came to a vote,
and the result was 7 to 4— Spreckels being
Now the committee had reported in
favor of the levy of 10 cents provided in
the act of the Legislature for completing
the new City Hall, and also for the salaries
of the seventy-five new men for the police
force, Jeft Folsom street's $80,000 regret
fully out, and held the $210,000 for the pay
ment of the City's back debts in abeyance
until the Supreme Court decision.
Kinc now started in on a new tack. He
wanted to cut out the $320,000 for the work
on the new City Hall.
City and County Attorney Creswell asked
for leave to speak to this, and in an earnest
talk called attention to the great danger of
leaving the attic with its forest of timber
to threaten the destruction of the costly
building; cited Fresno Courthouse as an
example of that danger; said that a little
crossing of electric wires up there might
cost the City a million, and finally, that
the law which "permitted" the Supervi
sors to lew taxes for the purpose was
really mandatory, and if the" board failed
in this it would be required to meet the
City Hall Commission in the courts. This,
Mr. Creswell said, would put him in an
embarrassing position, as in everything
except his duty as City Hall Commissioner
he was at the service of the Supervisors.
No action was taken on King's motion.
A resolution had been introduced earlier
and passed to print fixing the number of
the police force at 485 men, 5 captains, 5
lieutenants, 39 sergeants and 12 detectives.
This left off the seventy-five new men and
simply created rive lieutenants. Benjamin
moved that the appropriation of $704,448
for the Police Department be cut $94,448—
the amount provided for the extra seventy
five and this, of course, was adopted with
With these amendments— which raise
the tax rate to nearly $1 60— the resolution
was passed to print.

directed to cause the removal of the unused
