HOW HIE CHINESE COLLECT DEBTS.
On Moiuluy afiuriioon while) Sir. Hal
comb and Dr. Neal were out looking at
the New u,trs sights and visitini; tuo
temple, a mau came for Dr. Maloer, not
knowing tlieio wus a regular physician
here, to go lo seo a man who had taken
opium tho night beiorc to commit
suicide.. lit) bad been iu debt and was
very much anuoyed by bis creditors
and clioso tuo ordinary method ot io-
venge, that is to kill himself and ome
back as a spiiil or ghost to trouble, his
enemy and bung all sorts-ol bad for
tune, upon him. As soon as Mr. Hal
comb and Dr Neal returned Uuy start
ed oil in great basto with tbo man and
ono of tho servants to make col feu for
them and were gone for nearly six
hours. Thoy brought Iho man through
by using thu stomach pump to empty
his stomach and to fill it again with
Btroug coffje, and by giving him hy
podermic injections ot iuropia.
Tho next morning four ot tho men's
relatives came hero all iu thoir Sutiday
best clothes to thank the Doctor and
pay their respects at this important
season. Thoy have been hero onoe
since to get otner muaiuines, as me
patient did not regain tho uso of his
limbs at ouoe ; wo havo no later news
of his welfare. Dr. Neal says that
when they reached the house the man
bad been taken off ot his bed and out
into the court where ho lay on a board
so that his spirit should havo no ditli.
culty in getting out ot thu house. This
is tho common priotioej Uiey nover let
a patient die quietly iu thu Kang (that
is tho ordinary brick-oveti bedstead)
but carry them out to tho ouon door
so they can easily ily away. And this
ilobt and credit business is one oi tho
oddost and Btratigest customs. Dr.
Matoor savs a Chinaman is never hamiv
or at rest unless he lias a debt to pay
off. As soon as one is all paid ho
hurries to opon another so ai to havo
something to inspiro him to work. For

the opium iiaiht !
Last Tuesday I was called out of bed
tboul I ril f past four in tho morning
to attend another opium case, a boy of
sixteen or seventeen who una swallow
ed n lot of opium about ten o'clock.
When I got to him ho was in Iho lust
stage of thu poisoning ho that though
1 did all I knew how lor him in the
way of pumping out hi slomaeh, jiv
ing him eolfee and hypodermic inji-a
lions of Atropia and performing arti
ficial breathing, ho db'd about eight
o'olock. I wasn't with him when he
died, very much lo my regret. I had
sent about seven o'clock for Mr. Hal
oomb as I know ho would bo interested
in seeing thu case, and when hu came
ns tho usy seemed to bo doing about
as well as ho had for several hours, I
t'lld him whiit to do and came away for
my breakfast, hoping to find thu boy
somewhat improved when 1 got back,
but when I siw htm again hu was dead.
1 had had very great hopes we might
savo him although he was so far gone
when they sent for me, but thu poison
hail gotten too firm n hold on him and
ho was too young to get oyer it I was
very sorry not To bo present when ho
died, as they havo some intereslii'g
ceremonies they perform at that time.
In thu first place they never allow a
person if thoy can help it, to die on the
King insido the room, but move them
out into tho entry into which Iho outer
door opens S3 that when the spirit
l"aves it will have no dillioulty in 'g, t.
ting away. Mr. II ilcomb told mo that
when the mother of tho boy f jiind ha
was really dyint;, she insisted upon
dressing him up iu his best clothes
and then curving him out and laying
him in the entry, al the same time talk
ing lo him and telling him how she
would mifH him and wailing and weep
ing over lit til. After they had laid
him out, a relative of tho mother, who
was with her, (tho hoy's father is over
in Manchuria,) went out and bought
somn paper money and having made a
liaper bag put tho money in it, made a
handle of paper, so that it cmild ho
thrown over the shoulders, and then
hung thu wl.olo tiling near the door at
tho bov's head to h usi d iu tho Spirit
World. Tiii'ii his mother aid to tin- boy
"Now I have given you money and I
havo dresned joti up iu jour best
clothes." and afier that I imagine she
felt moro comfurtablo for when I got
back about half past nine, (I left about
eight,) sho seem-d quiet and resigned.
Sho seemed very anxious not to have
us touch the boy after ho was dead,
but of course I went right on and ex
amined him as much as I cared to, to
bo sure ho was dead. When we oaiuo
away sho thanked us for our attontion
and I think was grateful. Indeed eo
far as my experience goes I should say
thoy are really very grateful for any
thing you may do for them, fully as
much so as the clasH of Dispensary
patients are at home. I havo been very
agreeably disappointed and pleased in
that respect since I camo here. The
other day a woman who ,vorks for
Mrs. Shaw and whom I have been
doctoring som", sent her husband oyer
with about forty eggs as a present to
mo, and day befoie yesterday anothor
woman whoso little boy had had a sore
finger camo with twenty eggs as an
expression ot her appreciation. At
home it would seem dreadful to mo to
seo a man try to kill himself for such a
slight reason, but here it is different.
These poor people don't seem lo think
of its being anything very dreadful,
they do it so thoughtlessly and reck
lessly. Thu boy I mentioned had tak
en the opium becauso his mother iiad
given him a whipping In cause ho had
quarreled with another boy. The last
case, who was stono dead when I got
there, had been worried because his
father expected him to make more
money than ho could, so ho swallowed
opium. Another man took opium
becauso his partner in selling land usid
more money than ho oiuhi fo.

A Orank Among the Officials.
Washington special to the Haltlmoro Sun.
Theollicnof a prominent Treasury
official yesterday was entered by a
lady, well dressed and apparently
about -10 years old. Sho walked di
rectly up lo the oflicial, and, address.
nig lain by nam", proceeded in a loud
voice to tell him of a conspiracy which
had been formed again-t her to de
fraud her out of a claim for several
thousand dollars which sho suppotts
sue lias agaln3t the government, oho
rammed on iu an incoherent manner
for about twenty minutes, and tho ofli
cial humored her to the fullest extent,
agreeing with everything she said.
After she had departed ho related her
story to thoso who were present. Sh"
chims to havo been a nuixi during the
war, and imagines that Congress has
passed or is about lo pass a bill award
ing her a largo sum of m- ney. Among
tho lift of conspirators who sho alleges
aro opposing her aru Sunatois, Repre
sentatives, lawyeis of national reputa
tion and several distinguished army
officers who havo been dead many
years. Sho does not appear to bo in
distress or in need of money, but seems
bent on letting thu supposed couspira
tors know that sho is awaro of their in
tern ions 10 defraud her. Sho filed a
largo batch of papers, which she said
wore sworn statements of detectives
from various parts of tho country,
whom sho says she has employed to

of his death he had no feeling of ill

On tho morning of March M, 1885,
Mr. L. Hose, keeper of tho old citv
reservoir, discovered tho body of a
good looking worn in about t'i years
of age. Tho coroner pronounced it a
case ot suicide, and had tho bodv re
moved to tho morgue for identification.
Mr. I'elor J. ISurtou, a reporter of the
Ktclimond JJistmtct, subsequently
went to the reservoir and then lo thu
morgue, and his investigation resulted
in a murder theory upon a chain of
circumstantial evidence. During two
days many people saw tho body, and
it was finally recognized by two young
ladies as a fricud of theirs, Miss Fan-
mo Lilian Madison, of King and Queen
county, but who had for somo lime
past beon teaching school in Hath
Detectives and police were set to
work, and iu a short time brourrhl to
light circumstances that added strength
to the murder theory. A woman who
had registered at tho American hotel
on the liilh of March under tho name
of Mis F. L. Merlon was missing
Horn tho Hoiel, and Her dit-appoarnnco
ami tho muling ot Iho body about tlie
same limn furnished tho clew. While
inn so-caneu "Aiiss -ueuon was al the
hotel sho wrote and received several
notes, but otio directed by her was
never delivered, and alter "her depar
ture from the hold it was torn lo
pieces by the clerk and cast into tho
waste baskol. The scraps of this nolo
and tho envelope were subsequently
brought to light, and when pasted
together it served as ono of the princi
pal links in the chain which convicted
tlie murderer, it being addressed to ,lT.
Inquiry showed that tho man was a
young lawyer of King and Queen
county and a cousin ot tho deceased
girl. This led to tho arrest of Culvur
iu, who was known t have been in
Richmond on the 13th of March. Ho
was found at the residence of his aunt,
in King and Queen county.aud brought
to this city. Ho was indicted iu April
for murder, and his trial began at the
May term of tho court and continued
for twenty-eight days. The prisoner
pleaded not guilty. Nearly two hun
dred witnesses were examined, and
step by step the evidenco fixed upon
thu prisoner the brand of seducer and
murderer. Tbo jury, after a few min
utes' cmsldoration, rendered a verdict
of muider in tho first degree. Cluvcr
ius was sentenced to bo hanged on Nov.
20, 188o. An appeal was then taken
to tho supreme court of Iho statf,
which, however, availed tlie prisoner
nothing except that it stayed thu exe
cution for over a year, as tlie court,
witli but one dissenting voice, affirmed
tho judgment of tho lower comt. Ho
was theu resentenced to bo hanged
Dec. 10, 1880. The chief executive
was finally applied to for pardon or
commutation of seutenco lo lifo im

find no reason for interfering with tlie

Some Startling Evidence.
An incident transpired in connection
with iho murder of tho K ester broth-
ers, in Conynghatn Valley which wns
never before m'ado public, is now ar
resting universal attention, and it is
likely that if a I'inkerton detectivo had
been secured at tho time, tho murder
ers before this would havo paid the
penalty of their crime. It appears
that immediately following tho tragedy,
while tho officers of tho law wero in
stituting a careful search near the
homo of the murdered men for a cluo
to tho assassins, a portion of a letter
w is found adjacent to tho spot where
a gang of what was supposed to by
tramps camped, but who had depaiied
a fow days before tho brutal act was
perpetrated. It was evidently written
by n person not accustomed to doing
a largo amount of writing, becain-o
there was poor spelling and the lines
wero written in a xig-zng manner. It
referred to the jolly time tho writer
was having among his friends at Nanti
coke, at which plaeo tho letter was
dated. It laid particular stiess in giv
ing nn account of a family, which at
that timo kept a hotel a short distance
from the sceuo of the murder, and who
now conduct a houso of illfamo in
Il-u.ulion. Reference was also made
to tlio base ball qualities of certain pro
fessional players, especially Patsy Mo
Donald, who tho summer provious
(1885), was engaged with tho Pennsyl
vania Stato League, but was a desper
ate character, particularly when filled
with fighting whisky, and was equal to
any occasion that might arise.
It was plainly evident from tho con
tents of tho letter that there was a con
nection betweou tho tramps who camp
ed near tho Koster homo and tlio in
dividual who wrote it. Why tho mat
tor was kept so quiet can only be
answered by thoso who attempted to
capture the murderers and failed.

Halloween In Iiehncl.
Ono wild, blustering afternoon of the
last day ol October I mado my way as
best I could across n stretch of hilly
moorhnd, vainly hoping that I might
meet with some ono able to direct me
to my destination. Looking around, I
perceived a man waving his arm to
me, and ns I apjiroachcd him 1 noticed
that ho was a piper a fact of which
ho soon informed me himself, adding
that ho was on his way to Mr, Conuol
Iv'b farm to provide the music for thu
dancing that was hu.'o to follow the
regular Halloween festivities. It was
well he descried me on Iho moor, for
if I had procoaded further in thu di
rection I had been following I would
havo probably found myself flounder
So the huge nud treacherous bog called
in tho neighborhood Red Mike's Rest.
On tho way Larry O'Hara for so I
learned was the piper's inline gavo me
much curious informatien about the
customs of Hallowmas Kve in that
part of Ireland, and as his account of
bow tho great bog from which I had
narrowly (.scaped got its name is ger
mano to my subject, 1 will givo it hero.
"Rod Mike, your honor, was the
only son of Widow O'Flaherty. He
was a queer ono from his birth, an' no
wonder, for bo first saw tho light
a-ween dusk an' dark o' a Hallowmas
Jive. Hereabouts the people Bay that
if a baby bo born on this night, in inns
a mighty good chance o' bom' possess
ed by some sproitc or other j it may or
may not ba true, oi'm sure it's beyonl
the likes o' 1110 to say whether soch
things aro possible or not, but oi tcill
say that Mike O'Flaherty was different
to othor men from tho first, llo wor
always up to some game, ho wor, an'
nivver for good leastwiys I nivver
heard o' anny good hu iver did. He
lied and broke his troth to man an' wo
man, an' got into bad odor with priest
an' magistrate, for nigh upon twelve
years after ho came to manhood, until
tho judgment o' God camo upon him.
Ono Htllow Kvo he was at tho house
o' tho Flannigans, up by Glen Creach
aii. Ho was cotirtiii Mary Flannigan.
though ivery ono on us know sho didn't
caro two straws for Red Mike, but was
all agjow wi' love for Larry O'Ronrke,
the Limerick carrier. It's tho custom
in these parts for the children to run
into tho cabbage yard afore tho
evenin' fun begins, an' to pick out a
number o' cabbage stalks, an' namo
them artor any seven o' tho folk tbey
havo anything to do with ; then, hav
ing finished wi' tho uhoosin', thoy
dance around tho place.
Flannigan's childer, bavin' finished
thoir song, ran into tlio house an'
asked all tho folk to como an' see their
sowls. Ould Flannigan pulled his cab
bage stalk, and Mrs. Flannigan hers,
an' young Tim Flaumgau bis. an' Mrs.
Tim hers, an' purty Mary Flannigan
hers, and Larry O'Ronrke his, until it
camo to Mike O'Flainrty's turn. Tho
stalks of nil the othors had been quite
clean au' white, but when lied Mike
pulled up his, it was all black and foul
wi' worms au slugs, an' wi a real bad
smell ahint it. Larry O'Rourko laugh
oJ, an' Mary Flannigan giggled, an' the
others all looked moighty coosarned.
Mike clared about him for a moment,
more like a mad bull nr a haythin Turk
nor a Christian. Then ho up an' says:
'Ye may laugh, Larry O'Rourke, but
yoMl not bo laughin' lonu; ay, ye may
snigger, uiary, our, y0 11 do cryin' tor
mauny a day, when ya- lover's below
the 6od, as ho will be before tho year's
out. As for you, ould Flannigan, you
an' your son an' nil thnt belong to yo
will hnve cnuso to curso tho day when
ye mocked Red Mike, nB yn call me. Ye
forget I wns born on Hallow Kve!
I've tho gift o' tho sight, I have, and
on this day my curse can blast what
ever 1 choose. Wha-. more Red Miko
would havo said I don't know, but at
that moment Father O'Connor camo
up to whoro all was stan'in'. 'Curses
come homo to roost,' says he to O'Flah
erty, in a starn voice, an it's you
that'll suitor, Miko O'Flaherty, an' no
ono bore. Get ye gone at ouce, or I'll
pui tne wont on yo.' 'I'll go whan I
choose, F.ilhcr O'Connor,' says Red
Mike, surlily. Tne next moment tho
priest drew a crucifix from his breast,
sayin' to O'Flaherty that even if he
wor iu league wf tho devil, lie could
uot withstand that. Miko crava a
howl jist loiko n wi)d baste an' thin
turned an' ran down tho glen as fast as
ho could. Ould Thady King, tho
piper (now dead, God rest hissowll)
wor crossing this moor that nirht. nn'
who should ho seo but Red Miko dan
cm' an' shoiilin' liko mad, an' screamm'
iu mortal fear. 'Mike, ! Miko!' ould
Thady cried; but O'Flaherty paid no
attention to him, but kepi on screatnin'
an' soincimes shoutin' out, 'My timo
is up I my timo is up' Suddenly ho
bent forrard an' ran liko tho wind, "took
ono gieat leap, an' disappeared into'
tho grouud as if ho had jumped into
tho sea. Nothin' more wor over seen
o' Red Mike, leastwise as a man. An'
that's why tho great bog yonder is
called Red Miko'B Reft." William

From the rroUdenco JouraiL
Iu tho shipping nows of Friday
luurmug iu mis paper was tne an
nouncement of tho death of Senman
Jioomo Tarabocchia, of tho Austrian
bark Ukraine, Captain Mircovich, by
failing from the foro-top-gallant sail
yard when tho bark was" about -150
vards otl tho shore ot buntli Carolina.
Thu baik camo to this port from Italy
with salt, cousigned to Stephen D. An
drews. There is n weird talo told in
regard to thu young sailor's death ho
wus but 23 years old bythe sailors of
iho Ukraine. All of them, from can
lain down, are rugged practical men
and yet this voyage toiced many of
them to n partial belief iu omens nud
the weird iu life aud death. The story
must bo taken as trtio, however much
readers of it are disinclined toward tho
superstitious, and oveii if it has had re
Hcmblances iu sea life.
It was just before -1 o'clock on tho
morning ol saturaay, 1A comber 11,
and as tins beoti said, the bark was far
off the South Carolina shore. Tnrra-
bocohin was at tho wheel. Tho weather
was cloar and quilo cold, and it wns
still in the darker hours of the niuht.

ward. It flew toward the sailor at the
helm, nnd at last lighted upon bis
shoulder, struggling hard to get a foot
hold there. The Bailor reached up and
took tho bird in bis hands. It wns a
full Hedged sea gull, as white na snow.
While ho looked nt it thus it slretched
out its taper ucck nud pressed its beak
up to his lips as if billing with its mate.
Tho sailor caressed it, and finally put
it into tbo bosom of bis blouse. It lay
still there, thu warmth of tho spot ap
parently lulling to quiet. Whon 8
bells struck, at '1 o'clock, Tarabojchia
was relieved. Going forward to tbo
forccastlu ho clipped the gull's wings,
and then went below. The bird
nestled by him in his berth until it wns
timo to rise again.
That day tho gull played about the
deck and acted as fully domesticated
as a chicken. In tho ntternoon the
bark cat and tlio gull quarreled, and
tho quarrel closed in a terrilio battle.
This resulted iu both suffering severe
injuries, tho cat the worst of tho two.
Tarabocchia laughed at then both.
He said to the cat, as if it could under
stand: "You'ro nover going to get well.
You're hurt bad !'' Aud he told tho
gull that it, loo, would die, ho guessed.
That nignt, at 11 o'clock precisely,
tho bark was far off tho Cbespeake
shore. It was just at tho edge of the
Gulf Stream. Suddenly a squall camo
up to westward and tho order was
given to furl sail. Tarabocchia went
up and was at work on the fore-topgallant
sail - yard, whon tho bark
lurched heavily. IIo was about 138
feet above the deck. The acci
dent, fatal to him, nnw happened.
Somehow ho fell, and his body, whirl
ing through tho air, struck tho
rail henvily, and then slid off into the
sea. It Bank immediately and was not
seen afterward, though every effort to
find it was made.
As has been said. Ibis took place at
1 1 o'clock exactly. At 12 o'clock tho
injured cat quietly died as it lay on
tho vanished snilor's chest in tho cabin.
Just ono hour later, at 1 o'clock the sea
gull died. It had been taken to Tara
bocchia's berth that evening, and tbo
sailors watched th end with strnngo
feelings, for from the first the tactions
of tlie white bird had seemed ominous
to the bark.
Capital and Labor,
Under tbo "Declaration of Independ
ence,'' "that all men aro crented equnl ;
that thoy aro endowed by their Creator
with certain inalienable rights,'' arises
tho mysterious nnd all absorbing prob-
lem, the capital nud labor question.
All men are born equal, but immediate
ly thereafter tlio dividing lines tall by
fortuno or fato into their pathway j
hastening somo to distinction, wealth
and renown, othors to success in life,
and still others to poverty, destitution
and obsouiity. Perhaps to this latter
class belougs the great majority of man
kind. Iho questiou still further arises,
is this unequal condition tlio lcsult by
divino decree, by legislation, or, by
personal eltort on thu one hand, and
deliberate indilfeieuce on the other?
Ono thing is admis-able, to-wit : that
any person ot tcrluno may retrograde
by exertion, on the downward rond,
even to obscurity. But it is not possi
ble that tho average individual may
rise from obscurity to wealth and dig
tinction,'by his owu exertions undor all
adverse, oiruumstnuces whoro tho lino
of fate, whatever it may bo, crossed
This is the general rule, to which
there aro Borne noble exceptions. All
men aro born equal but all men aro
not born to equal opportunities, and.
hence it is not possiblo for all men
to create for Ihtmselves equal oppor
tunities. With equal opportunities
many who aro destined to obscurity
would lar outstrip many wbo aro born
to destiny. Rut, tho origin of the con
dition of social nud intellectual inequal
ity may not result from tho same caus
es ns the pecuuiary unequal condition
of mankind. Tho former is due, moro
to taste, inclination and insatiable
thirst for knowledge, while tho latter
is tuo result ot covetousness nud greed
for gain, which tcruplo not at oxtor
lion, unjust advantnges, theft nud rob
bcry, until accumulated capital becomes
enthroned with power and iufluouco
snllicient to attract recognition and
control legislation in behalf of its own
selhsb interest when there no longer
seems a way to cheek its career, or
break its power. The general tendency
of capital is to concentrate, naturally
gravitating to Iho larger bulk, and un
less this principle be chrcktd, or de
stroyed, may evontually all be "gobbled
up" by general nnd looal syndicates.
All the varied intciests are in conflict
nnd in competition with ench "thcr,
nnd the weaker either suffi rs, or suc
cumbs to the strong' r The whole ten-,
denoy of business rivalry is continually
to grasp morn firmly and suroly, a bold
upon thu public, surpassing all previous
efforts. And thus poor, struggling nnd
Buffering humanity is continually being
left more nnd more in the back ground.
Inatend of a "Declaration of Indepen
dence," which means everything tbo
words define, and utider which our
forefathers achieved thoir independence
it Is rapidly npproaohing a declaration
of impoverished dependence upon capi
tal for support by tho masses of our
onco independent people. J,
