A Chinese Stare Mart In San Francisco.
Nineteen Chinese lVomen Sold at Pnblic
Correspondence of the Xew York "World.
San Francisco, August 27.
The Great Republic (steamer) from
Hong Kong, arrived at this port yester
day, bringing but few passengers, viz.:
103 men and nineteen women. When
the steamer was telegraphed it seemed
as though the entire Chinese popula
tion had turned out to greet her, prom
inent among them being the lately ar
rested members of the Hip Yee Tung.
Inquiry as to the cause of this great
turnout led to the revelation that there
were nineteen women oa board. I
hastened to the mail steamers wharf,
where I found several police officers,
who had been sent there by the chief
with full power and instruction to ar
rest every Chinaman who was on. board
of the steamer. As soon as the lines
were made fast the officers boarded her
and called the names of the unfortu
nates, who then were placed in close
carriages and conveyed to the City
Hall. There they were taken into the
Probate Court room, where the Chinese
interpreter, Kev. Dr. Gibson, of the
Chinese Mission, a native Chinese Mis
sionary, two police ollicers, and your
correspondent had preceded them. The
hallways and vestibules were crowded
with members of the Hip Yee Tong,
who attempted to enter the room, but
were prevented from so doing. Your
readers can gain but a feeble idea of
these females from a pen description.
Some were stout, some lean-, some
blooming with health, while cther3
were apparently in the last stages of
consumption, old, young, and ugly
though three or four, from a Celestial
standpoint, would be, and doubtless
w'cre, considered beauties. The object
for which these Mongolian women had
been arrested will become clear after
the following conversrtiou, carried on
between the missionary and one of the
women, is read, the reply in each" anjl
every case being literally translated:
Missionary. You came from China
to this country on the steamer which
arrived here to-day, did you not?
"Woman. You know that I did.
Why do. you ask? For what rare we
M. Were you examined by the Com
missioner in Hong Kong before corn-
W. Yes; both in Hong Kong and
previous thereto in Canton.
M. Who paid your way to this coun
try? W. Why. I paid some and this old
woman the rest. She bought me in
M. Bought you? How could you
pass if she bought you ?
W. I owe her the remainder, and
will soon repay her.
M. What did you come here for?
Are you married?
W Yes, I am married. I came to
join my husband, who is somewhere in
M. Did you not come over as a pros
titute, and do you not know you are
telling a falsehood when you say you
are married, or that the other girls are?
W. Xo ; Ave are nearly all married.
Those who are not intend to seek for
some employment. We have been
prostitutes, but intend to reform.
M You say you are married. What
is your husband's name?
W. I do not know his name. (Xone
of the women knew their husband's
M. Where does he live ?
W. How should I know?
M. Well, suppose you do not find
him, what will you do?
W. Work until I do. I can cook
and may perhaps find another husband.
M. If you do not desire to lead the
life of a prostitute, but are truly in
search of work or are married, you need
not go with this old woman, but will
be placed in care of officers. Which
W. We choose to go with the Chi
Further inquiries revealed that of
the women, five were twenty-one years
of age, four were twenty-two, two
were twenty-three, four were twenty
five, one was twenty-seven, one twenty
eight, one thirty-two, and 1 sixty-eight.
Being beyond the reach of our Infant
act, they were discharged after receiv
ing a caution not to pay the tax to the
Hip Yee Tong, and the following no
tice from the Chief of Police, viz:
"You have each been offered a good
home and protection if you desired it,
Lut have voluntary chosen an evil life.
You have doubtless been told how to
answer ; but remember that if any of
you are caught in houses of prostitu
tion hereafter, you will be punished to
the full extent of the law." The doors
were then opened, and they Avere per
mitted to leave. Desirous of seeing
the sequel to this social drama, I fol
lowed the crowd and noted the house
where the girls vrent (for unless I was
greatly deceived seA'eral among them
were in their teens), and then sought
Ah Chin Suey, my old comprador, lie
requested me to wait until 10 o'clock,
and said: "Him waitee dark;'bimeby
dark come; him Hip Yee Tong man
sell him public auction. You go with
me; can catch good see; him no see
you." I waited, and at the hour nanied
was stowed away in a room of a Chi
nese house on Bartlett alley. I have
ofteen seen negro slaves sold in the
Southern States, have seen Turks at a
slave m;irt in Constantinople, Arabs in
Alexandria, at an auction of eunuchs
and Eastern jockeys at a horse sale,
but never in my experience as a jour
nalist ha3 it been my lot to witness
such a scene as I did last night. Each
woman was brought in by herself in a
state of absolute nudity, after passing
in review before the entire multitude
was put up for sale to the highest bid
der. The prices opened low, and gradu
ally increased until the hammer
dropped. The prices realized ranged
from 6250 to 6425. Sick and disgusted
I left with my compraior and found
out, still further that, that just after
the women had been housed in the
mart or slave corral, that two leading
members of the Hip Yee Tong received
349 a piece for them, making $765, and
that they received 10 per cen. of the
purchase money, which, with the head
money, reached nearly $1,500.
Tho woman question gave me a.
chance to further my pursuit of knowl
edge as" to the social and political
economy of Chinese life, and I made
the best use of the opportunity went
with Chin Suey to the meeting-room,
where I had often before been, and
found an indignant crowd of mer
chants. They had been scandalized.
outraged and stigmatized by a crowd
of their countrymen lost to shame and
honor. I was, however, greeted cor
dially and my questions freely an
sweretL The result of my interview
wa3 as follows :
Correspondent. I noticed that your
people have again imported women,
despite all promises.
President. We know it to our sor
row, but intend to stop it, if it can be
done. We have been scandalized long
enough, and will use harsh measures if
-hall other remedies fail.
C. What will j'ou do at present in
regard thereto ?
P. We will send a written remon
strance to the head men of each sea
port by next steamer, and if, after a
sufficient time has expred, they still
continue to come, we Avill send a peti
tion to the Emperor to interfere.
C. Your Avornen are too much con
fined in China and too much kept un
der subjection to become otherwise
than mere tools. Do you not think
that if they wore thought moro of that
they would be better off and the pres
ent trouble cease ? Why also not give
over buying and selling women?
P. Our true Chinese women . are
small-footed, and from their inability
to Avalk with ease are seldom seen upon
the Chinese streets. You Avill find our
Avornen here have more freedom than
they have at home. But it is more
than Ave can as yet see, the placing of
women on an equality . Avith men.
They would want to rule, and then
would ensue riot and ruin. The sale
of AA'omen is a matter only for our Avise
men to talk of, and they are uoay trying
to abolish it in China.
C. In a former conA'ersation in re
gard to education I told j-ou I might
need more information. I notice that
your old men show as much politeness
to the young as the young ones to the
P. Yes ; Confucius teaches us that
"Politeness is an indispensable accom
plishment and virtue." In all of
our native schools in China the rules
of etiquette are as regularly taught as
is grammar in j our schools.
C. I suppose the forms and ceremo
nies of office are taught by parents?
P. Xo; there you are mistaken; a
student learns during his examination
all the necessary forms and ceremonies
of A-arious offices, and the correct
knowledge of the same is indispensable
to a successful examination.
C. You remarked some time ago
that Ave make frequent changes in offi
cers. Are your Mandarins named for
P. Xo, Sir; our Government takes
care that no man shall Avield undue in
fluence nor be partial. To prevent
this no man can hold an office in the
proA'ince of which he is a native, his
term in each province is for three
years, Avhen he is sent to some place,
and so every three years.
C. With whom then does the re
sponsibility of error in local goA'ern
ment lay ?
P. In local, country or imperial
management in China that highest
official is responsible for the one below
him. A ruler of any province is held
responsible for any accidents or fires
occurring in his listriet, or fr any m
jury to the subjects or property of the
C. And the punishment t

C. Do you think many, if any of
the Chinese merchants Avill return to
P. If you ask each one, you Avill
find that lowing tasted the SAveets of
this country they have no desire to re
turn. Incidentally during my intervieAv I
discovered fiom others than the Presi
dent that the people who soAved rice
were being shown the difference be
tAveen the old way of husking rice by
Land and the neAV by machines, and
would ultimately adopt the latter
method; that the proposed railroad
from Shanghai to a point fourteen
miles in the interior, was looked upon
favorably, and would result in great
good every way to their countrymen at
home, and it will be one of the ways for
the introduction of a new civilization
in China, the results of which it fa dif
ficult to foresee. Wm. II. Seward, on
the 29th of July, 1852, in his speech be
fore the United States Senate on the
"Commerce of the Pacific," foretold the
present events in prophetic tones when
he said : "While the Pacific Ocean, its
shores, its islands, and the vast region
beyond, will become the great threater
of events in the world's great here
after." That we may be unable to
solve the Chinese question in all its
bearings from an- American stand
point is not to be wondered at ; yet the
"Heathen Chinee" i3 rapidly undertak
ing to solve the question, "Shall we
give up our exclusiveness?" China's
step is slow and steady ; she is sowing
seeds for her future translation from
ignorance and hate to civilization and
progress ; her wise men are busily en
gaged in the translation of foreign sci
entific works into the Chinese language,
and all the modern theories of naviga
tion are being studied, while her peo
ple are daily becoming more and more
enlightened. While we of this country
are in danger of "Caesarian," China is
rapidly on the highway to "republican
urn." I. Id. K.

FASHION STUD FAKH BURNED.
Two of President Grant's Horses Itaru
ed to DeaMi.
Tp.entox, X. J, Sept. 4.
This morning at about eleven o'clock
a carpenter employed on the Fashion
Stud Farm, near Trenton, observed
smoke coming from the cupola of one
of the stables, and at once gave the
alarm. A messenger was despatched
in hot haste to the city, a couple of
miles distant, and Avithin twenty min
utes the City Hall bell rang out the
signal for the hastening of the engines
in an easterly direction, Avhere by this
time black volumes of smoke could be
seen rolling up against the sky. SeA
eral of the engines, putting their hors
es to a dead run, reached the place in a
very short time, but altogether too late
to do any ood.
The stables Avere made of dry pine,
finished in style which rendered them
as combustible a3 tinder, and within
ten minutes of the first appearance of
smoke they Avere a mass of roaring
flame, doomed beyond all hope. There
were at this time nineteen horses in
the stable, and the alarmed keepers at
once turned all their energies toward
saving them. As is always me case,
the steeds became panic-stricken, and
fought like tigers against every effort
to get them out of danger. The keeper
of Harry B. it may be said literally
forced the noble fellow twice in suc
cession out or tne siaujc. Avnen ne
plunged back again into the smoke and
flame. A third time the keeper groped
through the suffocating vapor, and rec
ognized the terrified animal by the
sense of touch only. He managed to
g't him once more across the threshold
when the poor creature dropied dead.
The beautiful mare Rosabel fought as
desperately against her friends, but
they saved her unharmed in 'spite of
herself, although she lost $300 worth
of clothing. The keepers, numbering
over a dozen, worked like heroes tu
rescue the noble creatures under their
charge. These men made their home
in the handsome stables, aud in the
upper iortion all of their Avordly ef- j
fects Avere turning to ashes, and ye
they let them burn AA-hile they kept tip j
the desperate struggle with the horM s 1
below. Charles Cochran, the keeper of j
Goldsmith Maid, had $3,070 in his J
trunk in rrreenbacks. The trunk and !
eA'erything in it Avithin half an hour
was impalpable dust, and his own arms,
legs rind nose Avere terribly burned in
his efforts to keep the horses from
pushing into the blazing furnace.
Among the nineteen horses in the
stable these men succeeded in forcing
Out and keeping out eleven; including
the well-known Rosalind, Goldsmith
Maid, Hotspur, Susie Parker, Lucy,
and aci amen to (a fine trotter bclo ag
ing in California). All thtse Avere
saved entirely unharmed.
Those that were burned to death
Avero "Harry B." owned by Budd Doble;
and valued at $1,000 (he was sever.
years old and has trotted a mile with
ease in 2:35); W. C. Hutchinson's bay
stallion Young Windsor, live years old
worth $3,000; President Grant's three
year old. Cinderella and Blackshaw
Maid, worth together 10,000; L:i
Pierre, a black horse, seven years old.
who bad trotted a mile in 2:33, and
Avas valued at $5,000 (he Avas owned by
J. B. Butlerworth, of the La Pierre
House, Philadelphia, Avho also lost a
fine bay horse Avorth $2,500) ; Xcd Per
ry's bay mare Lizzie Ferry, worth $4.
000, and a lino black horse owned in
The "other property destroyed in
cludes fourteen sulkies, worth $123
apiece; five track wagons, Avorth $300;
three road Avagons, Avorth $yoo ; twenty
sets of harness, Avorth $2,000, besides
seven tons of hay, six tons of straAv;
buo bushels of oats, and a larjro numlxT
of saddles, blankets, .c. The total
value of the property burned, including
horses, isalittlo short of $100,000.
Fashion Stud Farm is one of the most
noted breeding and training establish
ments of the country, and is in full
vieAV of travelers passing between Xcav
York and Philadelphia. The tract in
cludes, 113 acre, belonging to the
banker, XT. Xr. Smith, 73 Broadway, Avhd
purchased it ia March. 1873, of tliO
Xcav Jersey agricultural society, paying
$81,000 therefor. The building cost
$10,000, and is insured for $10,000 only;
The origin of tho fire is uncertain.
One of tho theories is th.it it was '.ft
on fire by the sparks of a passing loco
motive; but this seems hardly proba
ble Avhen it is borne in mind that the
stable stands 200 yards from the rail
road, and the Aind at the time the
flames appeared Avas blowing in pre
cisely tho opposite direction. Many
believe that it Avas the Avork of an in
cendiary, A.hile it is by no means im
possible that it resulted from tlie care
lessness of some of the employes them
selves. There have been a large iium
1 i' of very valuable horses at the
i!;x for more than a Aear past, the-rei
b' iMover 100 at present. It was un
der the charge cf William Doble, avIhV
AViis telegraphed for at Philadelphia,'
iui'l reached the place in the afternoon
to-ii'-.d l!i;'t about all the property
s:tvi'd ;is summed up in a couple of
w:i-oi;s and sulkies. N. Y. World. .. .
A 1ARINU RESCUE.
Ihw a Tennessee Woman FrerI Her
Memphis. Turn, Sept. 7.
Some ten days since quite an excite
ment Avas created in the eastern .sub
urbs, by the arrest of J. E. White, a
prominent citizen, on a charge of horse
stealing, and within a few days no less
than a dozen specific charges for similar
offenses Avere made public, lie Avas
remanded to jail Avithout bail. This
afternoon his Avife called to see him,
and spent half an hour with him.
Shortly after she again made her ap
pearance at the gate and asked to be
admitted and Avhen the guard opened
the gate White presented a cocked re
volA'er at his head and said: "Let me
out or die." Tho guard sprung back
and White, darting out, mounted a
horse in Avaiting and diished off before
the alarm could be given. Pursuit warf
instituted early as possible, but up to
dark he had not been recaptured. Hi
wife had carried the revolver envelop
ed in her panicr and had the horse ii:
Avaiting. She Avas arrested.
The origin of the vagrant Avords for
fine girl, "Mullingar heifer," is too good
to be left untold : Many years ago a
traA'eler, passing through Mullingar,
Avas struck with the thick ankles of
the Avornen, and made inquiry about
the local peculiarity.
"May I ask," said he to a strapping
girl, "if you wear hay in your shoes V'
"Faith an' I do," replied the damsel,
"and what then Y
"Oh, nothing," added the stranger;
"only that accounts for the calves of
your legs coming down to fodder."
Hew to Manage an unuianuirMc Horse V
From the Commercial Advertiser.
A beautiful and high spirited horse
would never allow a shoe to be put or.
his feet or 'any person to handle his feet
In an attempt to shoe such a horse re
cently, he resisted all efforts, kicked
aside everything but an anvil, and av;1.:
near killing himself against that, ar.d
finally was brought back to his stable
unshod. This defect Avas just on the
eve of consifr!i!:.g him to the ploAV, sc
h might work barefoot, a; hen an offi
ce: in ourfcrvice, lately returned from
Mexico, took a cord about the size of a
c i ajem bedcord, put it in the mouth
of the horse like a Mt, ana ilea uou
the aniiral's head, passing his left ear
vnder the- string, not painfully, tight,
' I't tight enough to keep the eat
down and r!.e cord in place. This done
he p:utt J il.e horse gently on tho side
of the I.e-.iJ, and command-d him t
