A white witness Is easily found who will swear to the identity of the applicant, and, as all Chinamen look so much alike to the officials, the matter Is easily worked. The most common way, how ever, is for the Chinaman to have his photograph taken and send a white con federate to make out his application and hand in the pictures. Tho applica tion, of course, Is full of false state ments. When the certlllcate is granted the Chinaman must claim It in person, and this he does with no fear of detec tion through the attached photographs. About 60 Chinamen had arranged to get residence certificates ln this way, and some of them have succeeded. One of them Is said to be Hong Gong, a Chi nese merchant, of 79 Morgan street. whose case Inspector Debarry is now In vestigating. Gong, it is asserted, was In China when his application was made out Hong uong, impresaeu wii.a me ease ln which he had been smuggled, undertook to care for a number of his friends ln the same manner, and this aroused the suspicions of the officials. The authorities will now Investigate all cases very strictly. SIXTY-TWO LIVES IX)ST. -New Tork, Feb. 19.
