SAN FiiANCibCO , Oct. 2 . [ Special
/o / TIIK Bici : . ] "If you'll ' como with mo
into the forecastle ot the ship , I'll show
you something worth looking at , " said
a custom house innpector to your cor
respondent on the deck of the City of
They wont , the inspector loading the
way through gloomy apartments until
the nostrilB of the pilgrims wore filled
with that indescribable odor of which
Chinamen have a monopoly , and the entrance -
trance to the forecastle yawned grimly
wide before them.
The lloor ol the room was bounded by
a triangle whoso vertex was the stem of
tlio ship. The lloor was half covered
with chests constructed after ono nat-
lorn and ot the same si/.o. Upon six or
8OVOH of them the owners were reclin
ing smoking Chinese pipes and gazing
with "rapt admiration" at a black and
sooty "god" inclosed in a gorgeously
painted ahrino. Before the shrine a
lamp was burning , shedding gmoke and
Blench through the ill-smelling room.
"That is what I wanted to show you , "
paifl the inspector , "and my reason for
fallowing it was that I read recently in
an eastern paper that a gentleman con
nected with the Pncillc Mail company
had given a largo sum of money to a
Chinese missionary. ' I would like to
know whether ho is aware of the /act
that the Pacific Mail company's steam
ships are joss-houses. "
The inspector said nothing about the
employment of Chinese by the subsi
dized company in the place of Ameri
cans , made no allusion to the fact Mint
American worklngmon are taxed toaub-
size these ships onliich cheap and
filthy pagans nro employed ; while
American seaman stand idle upon the
wharves , or are compelled by want to
seek the chilly aid that charity gives.
Chinamen wore scrubbing the docks ,
Chinamon wore hauling the freight out
of the hold , Chinamen were Hying
hither and thither at the command of
the olllcors , and Chinamen were wor
shipping their god in the forecastle of u
ship whose subsidy was largely paid by
the 17,000,000 workingmen of America.
The Poking brought to port thirty-
flvo Chinese , an unusually small num
ber , o ! whom eight wore young girls ,
dcbtiued to drag out their wretched
lives in the dens ot Chinatown if the
United States courts permit thorn to
land. Ono of thorn was apparently
under ( Iftcon years of age , and none of
them moro than twenty. The inspect
ors spoke to thorn in Knglish , hut they
did not understand the language.
"Suppose I show you what becomes of ,
the alleged wives of Chinese merchants i
who como to this country and are passed
as such by the United States courts , "
remarked a prominent interpreter of
Chinese to the correspondent.
"Where do to ? "
you propose go was
"Hight through Chinatown , and in
the most questionable houses I will
show you n number of women who have
recently bcon landed and some who are
simply out on writs of habeas corpus
nnd who have not yet had a hearing. "
Although the assertion that such a
thing could bo done was no news to the
reporter , no objection was made to the
proposal ot the interpreter , and a tour
of tlio Chinese quarter was mndo. The
guldo walked ahead , \\honovorho
came to a don that contained a now ar
rival ho pointed out the woman. On
every notorious alleyway that is in
fested by thebo women wore located
from two to fire "merchants' wives , "
engaged openly in their nefarious cull
"The piturcs of these women nro in
the custom house , together with their
descriptions , " suggested the reporter ,
"and why cannot the Unitad States
authorities identify these women and
have them rotui'iodV"
"That is some ! hlng that no follow can
find out , " roplioUheguldowitha8hrng (
of his shouldors. "Perhaps they do not
know that they are here , and , again ,
perhaps they do. There is ono thing
that I do Unow.und that ia that they are
here and that there is a society organ
ized for their protection. Women are
valuable articles , you know. Almost
any of them Is worth $1,500. "
The ease with which the Chinese
women are landed was well illustrated
in the United Slates appraiser's olllco
the other dav. A reporter walked into
the rooms where the United States dis
trict attorney was supposed to bo exam
ining a horde of Chinese who wore de
sirous of landing. The purpose of this
examination ia to secure their state
ments before the cases htivo boon heard
in court , and to investigate and lindout
their truthfulness. The horde was there
all right , and the mills of examination
wore grinding rapidly. The work was
being done by two men. Ono waa a
shorthand reporter , and the other was
Loui , a well-known Chinese interpre
ter. Loui wasrunni.ig the whole inu-
chino. and taking ovideno to bo pre
sented to the court when necessary. It
is a notorious fact that the evidence
taken in this manner never interferes
with the landing of any one. The two
men strongly objected to the presence
of an outsider , and could only bo molli
fied by his departure.
Senator William Stewart , of Nevada ,
appeared in Judge Hogo's court the
other day on an ordoi to show cause
why he should not bo punished for con
tempt of court. The order grow out
of the sensational divorce suit of
Annie M. Fox against A. W. Fox ,
which occupied tho' attention of Judge
Moguiro's court in August , 1881. Mrs.
Fox , who is the daughter of Senator
Stewart , instituted the action on the
ground of cruelty. Her husband filed
a cross-complaint , charging his wife
with desertion , and alleging that as Ills
wife was an unlit person to have charge
of their four minor children , ho prayed
that their custody should bo awarded to
him. The trial resulted in the hus
band securing a divorce and also a de
cree awarding the exclusive custody of
When Mr. Fox made an effort to ob
tain the children , however , ho found
that Senator Stewart had taken thorn
cast beyond his roach. IIo heard no
word from them. His letters , ho al
leges , were unanswered , and ho was not
even informed that one of the children
had died. During th present year
when Mr. Stewart returned to his Ne
vada homo Mr. Fox states tlmt ho ap
plied for the children , but was refused
them. lie therefore applied for Wio or
der to show cause , which came up before -
fore Judge llogc. Senator Stewart
was present in the court room with the
throe children , two interesting boys
nnd a little girl , and evidently fearing
that an attempt would bo made by the
father to lake them , the party was pro
vided with a pohco escort. In order
that the necessary witnesses might be
obtained , it was ordered that the hear-
id g of the cause should go over. Coun
sel for Mr. Fox requested that nn ar
rangement should bo made whereby
the father might bo permitted to BOO
his children , but Judge Hogo declined
tomako any order until the linul dispo
sition of the case , and ordered that the
children should continue in the posses

The Chicago Herald of"iu9t Sunday con
tained n lengthy disquisition on the canvasback -
back duck by John Chamborlin , which
would pass current ns ac SBto article with
all these who know nothing about the nature ,
habits and oharactorlsttcs- this royal
game bird. To the oldjlljck-hunternnd
naturalist , however , the dJSJ&rtatlon la sim
ply a conglomeration of , wlsstatemonts and
* ' '
As a starter , It U assorted that the Ches-
apealto canvas-back is really the only canvasback -
back , excepting 1mm the standpoint of the
naturalist ; that the North Carolina , the
Illinois , Texas and California canvas-back ,
in gastronomic merit , nan no moro bo com
pared to the bird that frequents the Ches
apeake and its myriad of tributaries than
the mud-hen can bo likened to on acorn-fed
mallard. This Is the fiist nilsstatomant.
The writer has killed canvas-back on the
Chesapeake and at Carrltucic , too ; also at
Koshkouonpr , Wls. , and Liverpool , 111. , ns
well as here , over the waters of the Missouri
and the Platte , nnd it is assorted , with em
phasis , that the canvas-hack of Koshkonnug
and the lower Illinois , has no superior in the
world in fact , the birds hero are , on nn av
erage , bigger , fatter anu-moro luscious nnd
succulent , if anything , than the bird who
makes his spring and fall habitat amidst tlio
estuaries and friths of the Atlantic sea-
And then , too , t would require the most
convincing evidence that could possibly bo
furnished by means of culinary perfection to
induce the confession from the Nebraska
duckcr that any bird in the world even
equals the tawny-headed , aslion-brcnsted
beauty ho brings to bag every autumn along
the Loup nnd the Klkhorn , und In thu
marshes of Honey crock , Onawa and Wau-
The Chesapeake and Its companion waters
nro the oldest canvns-back grounds m thu
country. It was hero the birds were first
found in their greatest numboraand for years
it wus actually bolloved that they could bo
found nowhere else , and at ono time the east
ern authorities went so far as to asseverate
that the bird shipped in from Illinois was only
nn ally of the canvas-back. The gastronomes
and gourmets of the Atlantic coast were
extremely jealous , as well ns their sports
men ; they did not want to bo convinced that
this feathered morcenu , so long distinctly
their owncould , to knocked over by the nun-
dicds along the lakes and streams of rude
and vulgar Illinois ,
But such is , or was rather , Incontrovortl-
bly tbo case. At ono period the canvas-bnck
was ono of the most numerous visitors to
the waters of the Illinois. Of the countless
millions of wild fowl that mudo transitory
halls there in the spring and autumn on
their semi-annual migrations , none wore
more plentiful than this king of thorn all.
Ola Captain WhiteUead and If Joe Long ,
of Boston , who Is the author of thu clever
est work on wild fowl and wild fowl shooV
ing extant , was alive , ho could tell you who
the captain is who to this day runs n duck'
ing cabin boat utLiverppo ) , sixteen miles
above Havaua , III. , and jvho is ono of the
oldest market hunters , as well as ouo of the
best shots , in the whole country , told tbo
writer , ouo March afternoon , flvo years ago ,
as wo lay inn blind on 'thO'LUtlo ' ' Yellow
rlvrr , that ho had seen thu day wlion ho
wouldn't waste powder Und shot on
the canvas-back , und they would lly
over him , too , as jthl''k as you
over saw sprlgtulls. That was when the
superb qualities of the bird , as wall as his
value , was umcnown In thnt'primlval coun
try when they called them "gray ducks , "
and when tbero wus no market In Chicago or
St. Louis for any duck but tbo mallard and
only the "greenheud" tba. , Urako at that ,
Tlio hen mallard , with horf , pberor hues , was
classed In with the reOlioail , the widgeon'
baldpate , bluebill and wllf lcr , and It wan
only the drake mallard , with his bla/onry of
color , his darling emorum head and other
wise beautifully marked plumage that would
command any price at all. Kdlblo qualities
wore not considered then , In fact , net
known , and it wus the Impressive IOOKS of
the bird that regulated tbo market lluciua-
Ho at one time , say thirty years aero , it is
Quite probable that canvas back existed no
moro plentiful anywhere on God's green
earth than on the picturesque lilt-
nols. To-day , upon tho. Chesapeake , as
well as everywhere else , the birds appear
only in limited numbers , and ara decreasing
with every season , and ere many years will
oo the next tiling to extinct will have gene
the way of tba wild pigeon nnd the buffalo.
Of course there are days .vet , though they
bo rare enough , when tuellight is Binllciontl"
strong to recall to tlis old duoKcrtt tno times
that are forever gone.

continues , "Is not the natural progonltop of
our tublo celery , but dcuvcs its natno from
its resomblnnco to that edible. " It. is Joubt-
fulvliothcr Mr. Chnmburlm over saw any
wild celery , ( vnllisnoria spiralis ) for it bears
not tlio remotest slmllitudo to our table col-
cry , bulls , as was stated in thrso columns of
last Sunday In answer to a correspondent , n
thin , narrow , grass-lllio blado. always found
entwined with its nearest neighbor , and devoid -
void of the remotest twang of celery flavor ,
but pun eo nt and dolicata In tustc. It it the
roots of this plant that the ducks nro particu
larly fond of , and this Is milk whlto and nut
like , and tno inijrocHont that mainly impnrts
that peculiar flavor to the llesh of the can
vas-buck , as well as to tlio other ducks that
feed thereupon. They also ont the leafy
tendrils and the stock , but these are not
nearly so tempting or nutritious as the toot.
Ihe red-head , the mallard and the widgeon
are also supremely fond of this plant , bnt
not bolnp ; divers are incnpablo of its secure-
ment , save only by stealing it from the canvasback
vas-back when ho brings it to the surface.
The blue-bill , however , is as nblo in sub'
aqueous abilities as the canvas-buck , and ho ,
too. feuds largely upon this delicacy when
ho happens to bo In its neighborhood. Both
the canvas-back and the blue-bill can feed in
thirty feet of water , while the mallard and ,
his commoner con f lores rarely risk a greater
depth than three or four feet.
Yullisneria Is as abundant along the waters
of the streams tributary to the Illinois as it
is along the Chesapeake , and then there is
to bo found here , also , wild rice , acorns ,
nut grass ana many ol the seed-bearing
aquatic plants on which the bettor grade of
ducks delight to subsist , and their iie h in
merit compares in every possible detail with
that of the Chesapeake frequenter.
Still another inaccuracy of Chamberlin's
is that ho says the canvas-back cannot bo
allured by decoys. Ho la right , however ,
when he declares them the most difli-
cult of all wild , fowl to bring
to bag , but this Is simply from their incalcu
lable velocity of wing , and their extreme
wariness , and not their refusal to decoy.
Under the most favorable auspices it re
quires a quick eye and arm and unerring aim
to stop a cativas-bark , and the hunter must
ho scrupulously cool , and careful and cau
tious at all times. The crook of an elbow ,
the rise of a head , or the slightest move lu a
blind , will swerve incoming birds in th ° ir
flight , and a shot is lost. But that they will
not decoy is pioposterous , for by the rnht
kind of management this is really the only
way of an assurance to make a bap. The
writer has crouched in his "hido1' ' at Kosu-
Icononp , behind u "stool" of 100 decoys , and
seen as beautiful work with the canvas-back
as he over has with mallard , redhead or blue-
bill. Of course in their Keen shyness they
are not as apt to alight In the water among
the decoys as their less perspicacious cous
Ins , but they will BWOOD down , and over and
by your lures , as readily and as often as ttio
others , rum that is all the true sportsman
asks , If ho is unable then to stop thorn in
their lightning flicht , all right , he is con-
lentcd to await another duy to got a
crack at them. The canvas-back is partial
tn deep water and is "leary" of the shallows
along the shores. Ho is a ionbly , isolated
genus and consorts but little witii ins kin-
died , all of which goes to increase the dllU-
culty of making a good kill ,
Ihe following paragraph from Chamber
lin's aiticlo is the aumo of absurdity :
"Of course this national prize commands
sucii high figures in the market that there
are men who are willing to sink the natural
noble instinct of the sportsman to accom
plish their destruction. Those adopt various
prohibitory measures tending toward whole
sale slaughter. One of the most familiar of
these is Known as "tollng , " This consists
In building the "blind" on shore within a
few feet of the water mark. Through an
opening in it a common cur , odd in color
and sire , but trained to his work emerges
nnd trots up and down in front of the screen
ami performs all manner of antics. Canvas-
buck clucus are nflllcted with an insatiable
curiosity , and although they will not come
near a decoy , the don's nmncuuvcrs soon at
tract their attentlou , and , strangely enough ,
they swim in a body toward the odd object
until they como within the range of the
hunter's gun. Then , If they aio not "over
shot , " they can bo picked off one after an
other , nor will they go It the dog continues
his movements until the last one is killed ,
It is needless to say that this method of cap-
turn is looked unou along the Chosaonako
much as the theft of a horse Is considered in
the far western country , "
"Tollng" canvas-back was to bo sure at onetime
time m the early days , when the ducks were
more plentiful nnd less shy , a common mode
adopted by marlcet hunters to capture the
bird , but has fallen Into itiocuous desuetude
these scores of ycnis. The idea of shooting
Into a flock of canvas-back on the wutor and
not putting all Into instant flight , save the
crippled nnd the dead , is laughable indeed ,
and then bani'lag away , picking them off ono
by ono until the whole bunch is annihilated
is enough to maka a horsu cnohliuUo.
Airaln , In speaking about the aptitude of
some restaurateurs in palming off the red
head on customers for canvas-back , Cham-
borlmsuys : "The upper purt of the bill of
the red-head is of a scarlet hue that no
amount of cooking will alter. " What folly 1
The oill of the red-head Is bluish-black , alf-
forlug In almdu but immaterially from the
canvas-hack , and this gives rise to the doubt
whether this ornithological savant foully
knows a canvas-bacK from a red-head. Any
old aucker , however , recognizes thorn as
quickly as ho docs a mallard from a morgan-
7,08 , not by their bill , although that Is a mark ,
but by tholr whole anatomical structure ,
their plumage , and everything also ,
What the gentleman has to say with refer
ence to the serving of the canvas-back , I
tnlro no Usuo. That portion of hl profound
cffoil gives indisputable testimony , however ,
that ho Is moro at homo in the culslno than
In the field or marsh , or on the hay or river.
