Ilia ton*, the Buey Sin* tone, has only J5 members In Seattle— an ex elusive organization of bona fide merchants and workmen. The Hop Since, (ion* says, ire so stron*ty entrenched In Tacoma that other tonitm'n have left that city. "All the irunmen stay In Tacoma," he said. "When they come to Seattle or *o to Portland It is to kill some body, then they go back." I'nless something is done by the authorities to break up the Hop Sines or compel them to live up to an lnter-ton* treaty—an agreement not to kill signed here a month ago. Seattle will lose her best Chinese. "They all go to Vancouver," said Oong. "where the law is different." He explained that many have al ready gone to the British Columbia port, where Chinese are forbidden to carry funs and where, if a Chinaman Is found concealing such a weapon, he i« sent forthwith to the peniten tiary. This phase of the matter, the movement of leading Chinese to safer quarters In Vancouver, Is drawing the attention of the China club here, as well as the Chamber of Commerce.
