Washington, Aug. 25.—Probably the
most important arrests in connection
with the smuggling of Chinese across
the Mexican border into the United
Btates were made recently in Arizona,
when William A. Hoey, collector of
customs at Nogales; B. F. Jossey, an ,
Immigration inspector; Frank Howse,
a Chinaman living in Nogales, and
another Chinaman living at Clifton.
Mexico, Just across thc border from
Nogales, were taken Into custody by
special agents of the treasury and
secret service operatives. Other ar
rests are expected to follow within a
day or two. It is said that with two
or three exceptions the whole cus
toms and immigration administrations
b( Nogales are Involved.
Some time ago an official of the
treasury department, having Nogales
as his headquarters, wrote to the de
partment that he had reason to be
lieve that the official force at that
point waa corrupt and that Chinese
in large numbers were being smuggled
across the border for a consideration.
A secret service operative was sent
there at once and plans laid to secure
evidence against the persons under
suspicion. Several Chinamen were
furnished with money and sent on to
buy their way through the official cor
don. This was accomplished without
difficulty, the price demanded being
from $50 to $200.
The secret Bervlce men also ar
ranged with one or two employes,
whose honesty had been tested, to go
Into the collector's office at a certain
time and demand a share of the money
being received from the Chinaman and
to be admitted Into the combination,
so that they might get their share of
the proceeds of future deals. This
was reluctantly agreed to and con
siderable sums of money were handed
over In the prosenco and full hearing
of a secret service man, who had pre
viously secreted hlmBelf In a nearby
office closet.
The officials soon found that China
men who presented a certificate mark
ed with the letter "A" were allowed
to proceed without question, while
those having certificates that did not
bear this cabalistic mark were turned
back without ceremony. Later on It
was developed that the amount de
manded had been paid. Several China
men were sent through with the requi
site "A" mark on their certificates
made by one of the secret service men.
The utmost care and Becrecy was
maintained from the first to secure
positive proof against each man under
suspicion. A special United States at
torney will be detailed to prosecute
the persons arrested. Hoey was ap
pointed collector about a year and a
half ago. His home Is ln Munde.
Jossey Is from the state of Washing
ton. The number of Chinamen who
have bought their way into the United
States through the alleged connivance
of the Nogales officials Is believed to
be large. A special agent has been
ordered to Nogales to take charge of
the office, If he finds It necessary.

ter drafted by Juan Guafberta Gomez, at
the request of the committee appointed to
address a communication to Thomas Es
trada Palma, asking for a more specific
statement from him regarding the program
he would follow if elected president of the
Cuban republic. The letter says:
"We think the following would be an
appropriate program in the country's
present condition."
Then followed four clauses dealing with
the question of the commercial treaty
between the United States and Cuba,
"which should tend toward free trade, but
at present Cuba needs some income from
The second clause recommends the build
ing up of a system of local taxution and
economics in the government.
The third recommends the payment of
the army after a thorough examination of
r 11 claims. The fourth clause, in referr
ing to the Platt amendment, says:
"In making treaty relations with the
United States, which are to be respected,
the government should take advantage of
any opportunity to have the United States
reverse the clauses curtailing Cuban inde
pendunce and sovereignty."
All of the letter was accepted except the
last part, which was rejected by a vote of
four to nine, though General Maximo
Gomez voted for it. It w a s decided to send
the letter to Senor Palma, with an account
of the doings of the meeting and to await
a reply from him. The letter claims to em
