NEW-YORK , July 8. The Herald's Phila
delphia special says : Evidence ia accumulat
ing that the Chinese are introducing tholr
national feuds and oath -bound societies into
the United States , The recent assaults com
mitted upon fellow-countryman by the Chi-
neBo tend to confirm such belief , Within the
past few weeks printed cipher circulars
have boon distributed among the
Chlr.030 of Philadelphia that are
unintelligible to the best American
scholars of the language , but are supposed to
boar peculiar significance to such parsons as
understand their import. They ore printed ,
not written , on a piece of rico paper four In
ches long by one inch in width , An Amer-
canized naturalized Chinaman named John
Wing , engaged In tha tea trade in a modest
way on North Ninth street , sheds come in
teresting light on the subject. Ho pronounces
the ) slip a veritable proclamation of the Yo
Hing , ono of the most feared of all Chinese
Becrot alliances. Whllo ho frankly admits ho
does not understand the characters , ba de
clares the slip to be Ronuino Chinese , the
words coined letters being formed by combi
nations of recognized forms which are readily
pronouncablo 'though antagonistic to the
monysyllablo etructura of tha lan
guage. Ho bolloves the card to
bo the work of a Shanghai scribe , basing the
opinion on certain marked pecullartiet ) ot tha
letter formation much affected in this city.
It is the first specimen of Yo Iling ho has
seen slnco leaving Tien Tsirt , ono of tbe forts
of Pekin , five years ago. Uo had seen the air
full of auch circulars just before the outbreak
at Fou Chou. They were often circulated by
kites nnd small balloons which carried great
quantities of tissue paper proclamations aloft
and released a bushel or moro of them over
tha city when the fine silken cord , leading to
the bands of conspirators , was pulled. As
the snowy shower began to fall , the people In
the streets stopped , picked up ono of tha
tcraps , glanced at it and if they .comprehen
ded Its import , spat upon it and stuck
It to a post or tbe sldp of a house. Then they
abandoned all their vocations and hastened
to a central point previously agreed upon or
indicated in the cipher. The utmost pub
licity was given to these proclamations , and
phonetic subdivisions of Chinese characters
were carried to such an artful extent that a
properly Instructed Yo Hing could read the
newest inscription as well as the ono which ho
had previously seen. It was ascertained that
befora John Wing left China , that its mem
bership in the coast provinces and in Cochin
China exceeded ten million men ,
( "In New York there haa been for several
/ years a secret society among Chinese hailing
* J. from tbo northern provinces , " continued the
r speaker. ' I do not know that it Is Ve Hing ;
am inclined to believe it Is not , The Now
Yorkers explain they are Chinese freemasons ;
judge , they may be free , but they are not ac
cepted. The Now York order numbers fully
1,000 , however , out of a total Chinese popula
tion of perhaps -1.200. The membership ia
chiefly drawn from men of Shanghai or the
province of Keang See , in which that port Is
located. "
. , . ,
"Is tha power of this or any other similar
organization felt in the policy of China ? " was
"Yea , indeed ; the mysterious and far-
reaching influence of this society has been
enlisted several times by directors of two
rreat trading corporations , the greatest com
mercial organizations of the globe , known as
.Sam Yap and Sea Yap. These powerful com
panies have offices In San Francisco , where
their real business is hardly suspected , and
nowhere , outside of China , understood. Their
commercial relations roach to tha farthest con
fines of Kausup and Thibet. Caravans in
their service started last tall from the valley
in Keun mountains that will not reach the
market before next summer. They have cor
respondents in every part of Asia , and their
circular notes are good even among the tribes
of Hindoo-Kush or of Little Bokhara. Thay
deal in everything , from tea to
opium , or spices to gems. The Eu
India company was as a trading Yankee on
the Sioux reservation in comparison. When
therefore , the mighty company , like the Sei
Yap , itself a consolidation of four widely ex
tended corporations as Its name indicates
employs Ye Hing to aid it in procuring favo
at the imperial court or with smaller ruler
among the provinces , It Indicates at once th
recognized ability of secret order member
from the very fact that its agent ! were re
cruited from the educated classes and higher
castes of China , I doubt the presence of any
great number of Ye Hings in the United
States. It is with moro frankness than dis
cretion perhaps that I declare that most of
the Chinamen in America belong to the low
est orders ot society nt home. It must ba ad
mitted , however , that ambition brings them
hero. They hope by a few years of abject
servility hero to gather enough money to inako
their families respected and wealthy for years
to come. The highest honors in
tbo gift of the emperor are within thn reach of
any man. Education ia what ennobles in
Chma. Tnla learning many poor wretched
lauudrymon toiling over the tub or ironing-
table in the cellar hopes to give to his son or
grandson that ha may start the family lines
in ft race toward tbo prime ministry and some
of these dreams will bo realized partially at
east. "
' "Do secret societies Interest themselves in
politics as lu soma parts of Europe , or are ,
they charitable in purpose as in this country , "
was next asked ,
"Politics is a trade In China as much as
hero , " WM the reply. "It must be admitted
that for & young nation on which we , with
our five thousand years of civilization , look >
rather cynically , the United States haa made
considerable progress in several branches of
the corrupting science. In my native land
> I prievo to say , many obnoxious methods for
inlluoncing linptilal laver are employed.
Schemers exist there who would outwit the
average professional statesman In this coun
try , An Ohio congressman would ba be
headed before ho reached the dignity
of a koocho or justice of tha peace ,
Sines the beginning ot the French difficulty
with Tonquin , for instancj , couriers have
been pasting between ono province and an
other of the kingdom of Anatn , establishing
branches of Ye Hing and Initiating members.
Cochin China is socially honoycomed with
clam , and feuds of the most Implacable kind
exist , Murders oscribable to these agencies
are ot frequent occurrence. Many men ve
brought these hatreds with them , and rse
them hourly , hoping that , when they return
home , they will have money enough to hire
the removal of an obnoxious enemy of the
family to which he belongs. Wretched laundrymen -
drymen , shivering in Cherry street attic * inat
night , count and recount the dimes in theii
pockets as they calculate how much oearei
the sum brings thorn to the revenge they cav
ct and nra about to dream of for the thou
# sandth time perhaps. Tha Chinaman neve
forgives. The hittory ot Ye Hinjr ia an ad
ditional proof of thli fact. It is a voritabl
bit of actual romance of history.
"And is it this society that has effectei
lodnment In San Francisco , New York ind
Philadelphia ! "
"In Sin Francitoo , yea ; here I am not s
ure , though this aecret cipher circular or
nanlfesto , or tocsin of defiance , or flag of

CHARLESTONS. C. July 8. About the middle
of June Gov.Thompson was Informed that the
convicts employed in grading the Savannah
Valley railroad , In Abbeville county , were
cruelly treated ; that one convict had died in
consequence of whlppinga by guards ;
that they were overworked , and that excessive
mortality prevailed among them. The gov
ernor immediately instructed the superinten
dent of the penitentiary to investigate tha
charges. Tbe official report , which boa just
been made , shows that sixteen deaths have
occurred since June 1 , out of a total
forca of about 120 convicts ; that seven are
unable to work ; that the convicts are required
to march nearly three miles to their work in
shackles on their legs ; that on account ofthe |
bed quality of their food , scurvy has made its
appearance ; and that there has been excetsivo
cruelty in punishing the convicts.
In describing the effects of tha beating of
Henry Porter , by A. W. Jackson ,
who had temporary charge of the
convicts daring the absence of the regular
overseer , Dr. S. S , Pope , penitentiary physi
cian , says :
"As an evidence of the severity of the
whipping inflicted , I would state that tbo
tissues bavo sloughed , leaving an open sore
eighteen inches long and ton Inches wide. The
punishment must have been very cruel. 1
doubt his comp'ete recovery. "
Other convicts wore also cruelly beaten , al
though the condition of those now at work is
sail to bo "very fair. "
Jackson , the inhuman guard , has fled to
Georgia , but efforts are being made to secure
his arrest. There is great Indignation a'
these outrages and steps will probably bi
taken at the next sess'on of the legislature to
discontinue the practice of letting out con
victs to railroad companies and phosphate

WAHHINOTON , July 8. Dr. Hamilton ,

I He does not think that this should cause

Failure In the Dolphin Case
General Gossip.
Special Telegram to The Bis.
WASHINGTON , D. 0 , , July 8. The newspa
per member of the cabinet , Secretary Whit
ney , seems to have abandoned , or at least sus
pended , the Dolphin performances. It is the
general impression tbatjhe will , after all , get
worsted in his contoa t with Koach , It par
takes so much of persecution that Whitney
finds himself with little tupport outsldo of
sensational bourbon newspapers. Men high
in naval lifo here laugh at Whitney's naval
board. It wis composed of two naval officers
without any knowledge or experience as engi
neers or constructors. The third member is
an engineer and constructor by reputation.
The report may thorcforo bo consid
ered his. It is worthy of note that the only
export on Mr. Whitney's board lathe civilian
engineer and constructor , Mr. Harmon Win
ter , who happens to bo the consulting engin
eer of a line of steamboats from New York to
Boston , of which Secretary Whitney's brother
ia general manager , and Secretary Whitney's
brother-in-law is tha principal owner. That
Winter's conclusions should not bo nt variance
with Secretary Whitney's desires and wishes
ia not to bo expected. To any unprejudiced
mind the whole action of Whitney's will ap
pear to ba n crusade against Koach , anil con
sidering all the circumstances , few will bo
found so credulous as to believe that had
Koach bean a democrat the chip would have
been accepted after the report of the advisory
board. It la the desire to make political cap
ital and throw discredit on Arthur's adminis
tration that baa evidently prompted Whitney
and led him into the preseut unenviable posi
tion , from which even the help of his man
Friday will not extricate him with credit ,
In answer to complaints made by drovers
that they are prevented by settlers upon the

Commissioner of Internal Revenue , Sir : This
office Is in receipt of your letter of the 1st

sion of seven months from June 25,1885 , on
this transportation bond dated January 16 ,
1885 , for seven months , coverIng -
Ing 527 barrels of _ whisky with
drawn from the distillery warehouse.
The application alleges that the present con
dition of tha market for American whisky in
Knropo Is depressed , and that tbo outlay for
the transportation and exportation of thii
whisky at this time would entail a great hard
ship. Yon express the opinion that.the tirn >
of seven months allowed by bond under th <
provisions of circular No. 282 , of January 3 ,
1885 , was ample for the transportation
of said whisky Irom tbe place where ,
It h deposited Cynthinthia , Ky.-to thi )

WASHINGTON , D. O. , July H. The pgrlcul-
tural college convention met to-day and wai
, called to order by the Hon. W. F. Switzler
- ot Mlnourt. Commissioner Coleman in his
opening addrets of welcome briefly eketclitc
the ditcuwioni in confjrew which
the magnificent grant of land for the endow
ment of agricultural colleges in several states
and laid It would be conceded that the gen
eral public professed ft degree of disappoint
ment in the outcome of these Institutions.
After alluding In detail to torno
ot the brant DM which should te
fundamentally taught in all agricultural col
leges , lie referred at length to some of tba
operations and plans which might bo carried
out on college farms by college faculties , and
which would ba more particularly , under the
auspices of the department ot agriculture and
fonts special advantage. The peculiarities
consequent upon changing seed from ono
soil and climate to others wera strongly sug
gestive that good would result from a well
conducted series of experiments made over
widely diversified climates and conditions.
The wider the system of interchange of seeds
and the greater the number of simultaneous
test * , the sooner could bo tabulated the re
sults out of which to deduce principles
for futuio guidance and action ,
As an example of the special
work Buitabla for localities he would mention
the investigations relating to the cotton plant.
The department could collect seeds of many
varieties and assign thorn to all the colleges
in tba cotton states with Instructions which
would secure timllarity of treatment through
out their growth.
Semi-weekly inspections might bo made ,
when every detail of progress connected with
rainfall , temperature , time of first flowering ,
continuation of the blooming period , etc , ,
should ba carefully noted. This process
should ba continued for n corles of yean , but
when completed could not fail In being
of great benefit to all engaged tn
the culture of a crop. A determination
would bo reached as to the adaptability of
certain kinds to certain climates ; better va
rieties than these now cultivated would bo
indicated for many localities and the
profits would bo enhanced. The
first fact to bo developed by
such experiment would bo tbo eliciting of
knowledge necessary to the Intelligent crossing
of varieties for Ili9 purpose of combining
in ono the excellencies of many. He
coald sea the necessity for a _ great
national exporimantal I arm also , which ha
would have cstablishtd near the capital , nil4
if ho might go further ha would establish on it
a permanent national exposition whcra
porducts of this nnd other nations might bo
exhibited. Uo be.iove d Hint at no distant day
this ideal would bo realized , for agri
culture , tha nursing mother of all in
dustries , waa entitled to such recognition ,
After the conclusion of the cotnmisaioner'a
opening address , the temporary officers were
made permanent. Commissioner Column this
afternoon announced that ho had received a
latter from Miss Cleveland , of the executive
mansion , which he did not think was intended
as .1 private communication , He said Miss
Cleveland hod manifested laudlblo Interest in
one of the industries In which tha country was
intrreated , Ho then read the letter as fol
lows : .
"EXECUTIVE MANSION. I venture to ask If
the subject of silk culture in the United
States Is ono which will receive attention from
the agricultural convention , I find myself
feeling a deep interest iu this industry , not
only because it seems rigb t and fitting that
we should produce our own silk in success
ful competition with the old world
but because this industry when BO es
tablished , na it may bo by the encouragement
of tbo government , will afford ono mora
avenue of self-support to women. I am sure
you desire with mo to see such avenues In
creased m a worthy and legitimate way. I
nm hoping to have the pleasure of visiting your
bureau before long. Very truly yours ,

CHICAGO. 111. July 8. The wheat market
opened weak this morning nud under consid
erable pressure prices frit off Jo from the clos
ing of yesterday , the offerings being largo and
the shorts soiling rampant. The tone changed
during the middlool the session , owing to im
proved foreign advicor , more marked export
inquiry and lightened receipts at all primary
receiving points. News from the harvesting
sections disclosed no improvement and the
view appears to bo now generally entertained
that the winter wheat yield will ba less than
estimated ono month' ago , Ono of the fea
tures of the later strength shown by the mar
ket was contained in the fact of a shipment of
270,000 bushels from Now York. Kngagements
wore a'.eo reported for IQO.COU bushels
from this port , With rumors that tome wheat
was taken for direct export , prices advanced
IJc from the Inside figures ; reacted § 0 and
closed on the regular board at about the ( nine
figures as yesterday. On the afternoon board
the market was again excited and stronger ,
closing fcr the day go higher than that of yes
There was more doing on a speculative ac
count in corn , and the feeling was strung and
prices higher , Influenced by the falling off in
receipts. Prices advanced ic , foil back , and
closed @ic higher than yesterday.
Prices ruled jt@yc higher for oats , the re
ceipts showing a falling off ,
Provisions ruled easier early , but rallied and
closed steady.

Trade was rather slow and prices at least

unexpected , and it ia something of a surprise
that it Is not more considering tbo extraordin

pounds made as high prices as moro weighty
animals. There was a light supply of lirst-
class butchers'stock and the offerings on sale
mode high prices. Low grades were
plenty and cheaper. There wore
only about thirty cars of Texans
and they sold equally as well as yesterday and
are 30 to 60c higer than a week ago owing to

that parties concerned do cot care to ris

There ia a general impression that the reve

are in the main truo. The questions .
muin are whether It is ( .notifiable to pair-dfl
such slckanlng details in the public press , and
whether the motive of their publication Is
moral or mercenary. It ia generally thought
that tha solo object was Jo raise the drooping

PHILADELPHIA ! Pa. , July 8. Information
was given hero yesterday upon goad authority
that the negotiations that had been made by
the Pennsylvania and the Now York Central
railroad companies , with the view ot a settle
ment of the trunk line difficulties , were pro
gressing satisfactorily. For the first time
since these negotiations were begun it is stated !
that they are in a position where they can bo
concluded within twenty-four hours , but
whether it will ba done so speedily as that
even those who are the parties to the matter
cannot say. The most serious obstacle to the
settlement of the trunk line difficulties has
been the jealousies and antagonisms existing
between the Pennsylvania and the New York
Central companies , and- these have been occa
sioned by the invasion by eich upon the
other's territory. An officer of the Pennsyl
vania stated that those jealousies and antago
nisms could not ba appeased except by the
withdrawal of each from the other's territory ,
and this meant that the Vanderbilt interests
must abandon the Pennsylvania enterprises ,
and that in return for this the Pennsylvania
would exert Its influence to subordinate the
West Shore to Vandeebllt control , while the
Pennsylvania would not bo BO aggressive inlts
New England business as heretofore.
