WASHINGTON NEWSPAPER MEN
HAD EVENING OF MERRIMENT
Many Guests Attended the Banquet of the Grid
Washington, Dec. 10.—The first din
ner of the Gridiron Club for the sea
son was given at the Arlington Hotel
to-night, and the beautifully decorated
dining room rang with merriment for
more than four hours, greatly to the
delight of the 200 persons present. The
recent election afforded the famous
club of Washington correspondents an
opportunity to make mirth at the ex
pense of both the successful and the
defeated parties, prominent representa
tives of both being present to enjoy
quips and burlesque which were pre
sented with Gridiron humor and pleas
antry. Cabinet officers, senators, rep
resentatives, diplomats and other offi
cials were there to be put on the grid
iron and also to appreciate the clever
skits which had been concocted for
their especial benefit.
An attempt to reorganize the Demo
cratic party, in which Cleveland,
Bryan, Watson, Debs, Davis, Taggart

general situation injected himself,
made the lilt of the evening.

But this did not prove as profitable as

they have been ever since.
Battling went to school until he was
fifteen, and then, because there was

San Francisco Letter in Galveston
Visitors to the Chinese quarter are
attracted by red letter placards on the
dead walls of some of the principal
street corners. Occasionally a placard
is posted unusually high, like the laws
of the Medes and Persians, which they,
desired should escape the attention of
the populace. But the Chinese have a
different object—they desire the plac
ards to be read, but post them high so
as to be beyond the reach of police
men or the person who is lampooned.
The red placard is a drastic way to
collect bad debts. Instead of employ
ing a collector and paying him a
large per cent, the creditor writes upon
a sheet of paper: "Wun Lun owes
me $lO for money I intrusted to him.
I respectfully asked him to pay, and
it is always that he has not the
money. Nobody should trust Wun
Sometimes this warning is signed,
but more frequently It Is not. The no
tice is posted late at night, the injured
creditor using a step ladder for the
purpose. Every one passing 1s attract
ed by this red letter blacklist notice.
The crowd grows and all are talking
as if It were a declaration of war by
one of the tongs.
This plan of exposing delinquent
creditors is effective is most instances
and the bill is paid that the debtor
may “save Ills face” and his credit.
Until the bill is paid no one else will
give him credit, and even then he is
placed 111 the doubtful column, for It Is
known that he paid only upon com
The police discourage this free adver
tising, and where two or three excited
Chinese are gathered together discuss
ing the merits of the case they are
urged to "move on.” The Chinese do
not think tills posting libelous, but
seem inclined to Justify the creditor In
his expose of the delinquent, and are
glad to get the news for self-protec
Anew arrival who wants to find his
poor relations or friends post a no
tice that ho has arrived, and requests
them to call on him in his alley, three
flights up, back room.
Another placard that attracts atten
tion is that of the “boss" who wants
workmen. If he desires a gang of
grape pickers to go to “Fleahtno”
(Fresno) he puts up a red placard,
but lower down than the one adver
tising the fraud, Wun Lung. Other
“want" notices are pasted on these
splotched and spotted corners, and
there is usually a crowd there all day
leading the handwriting on the whlls.
There are. of course, many Chinese
who do not take a paper, and street
corner advertising is the only way to
When a family celebrates a birth
day or gives a yearly feast notices of
the forthcoming function are posted,
inviting all members of that clan.
It Is the custom for each of the
,six companies alternately to lease
a theater and give a free exhibition
for members of that company. The of
ficers of the company send tickets to
each member, und no one else is ad
mitted. Notice of this free entertain
ment is posted up and uttracts great
The reason thnt Chinese use such
heroic measures to compel delinquents
to settle is that most of the debts
are contracted upon honor. Money Is
loaned without security, or even with
out a note of promise to pay. In the
absence of written evidence or wit
nesses the Chinese court Is, of course,
largely governed by the reputation of
the contestants for truth and honesty.
It Is only when one refuses to abide
by the decision of this arbitration
board and becomes a general “dead
beat” that he Is placarded upon the
dead walls. This Is one of the humor
ous phases of Chinatown and affords
must amusement, for the street Idlers
and business men are never In too
great a hurry to stop and read about
the bud Celestial who has “lost Ills
The placard form of advertising has
spread beyond the dead walls, and oc
cupants of business corners have re
sorted to the American style of warn
ing by pasting low down, within the
view of all, In large Chinese charac
ters, something similar to our "Post
no bills, under penalty of the law!”
According to a Chinese custom which
Is as rigidly adhered to hs a statutory
law, every one must pay his debts be
fore the first day of the new year;
otherwise he is refused further credit.
Notice of his failure to do so is noised
around In about the same way that
American business men learn that a
person Is slow pay and not sure.
The delinquent debtor finds It difficult
to get employment and Is ostracized
socially. In cases where It Is impos
sible to meet his debts, and he so sat
isfies his creditor, the matter is ar
ranged by compromise. But the cred
itor must be paid or a. satisfactory
arrangement made with him before the
new year begins, or the debtor goes
to the wall like a protested note.
The general way, however, of set
tling disputed accounts is by arbitra
tion in what is called the “Meeting
Hall of the Middle Kingdom.” This
hoard Is composed of members select
ed from the six companies, and it sets
as a court of Justice in the settlement
of debts, quarrels, disputes about
wages and other business troubles. Of
course, It has no legal power and uses
only arguments and “moral suasion.”
Some writers state that this “govern
ment within a government” punishes
criminals and exercises the powers of
criminal courts. This Is denied by the
Chinese. The court or board only has
advlsorv powers. The creditor noti
fies the court that Sing Hi owes him
some “cash" and will not pay. Sing
Hi is requested to appear and “save
his face.” The complainant makes his
statement, and the debtor attempts to
Justify himself for not paying his
debts. If either disputant Is dissatis
fied with the decision he can take the
matter to the American courts. This
arbitration is not binding upon them,
but generally they consent to accept
the decision of the board before the
case Is tried.
It it rarelv that an appeal is made
to the American courts, for the con
testants are lpformed that they must
pay lawyers’ fees and court costs, and,
besides, may have to wait a long time,
as either can continue a case almost

“My experience has proved that
there Is no disease I may not cure. I
do not care how severe the case may
be, how chronic, how long standing,
what other men have said or failed to
do, or whether the patient has been
pronounced Incurable or not. I am
just as ready to cure consumption,
cancer, paralysis, Bright’s disease, or
ganic weakness, deafness, any of the
drug or liquor habits, and other so
called incurable diseases as I am to
cure stomach and bowel troubles,
rheumatism. nervous prostration,
blood disorders, catarrh or any of the
other Ills that human fiesh is heir to.
I have done so many times over. With
out Intending to boast, I may safely
say that I treat more patients In a
year than the average physician doe#
face Is considerably greater than Is
generally Imagined. The Inventor of
the hydroscope has himself been able
to read a newspaper lying on the sea
bottom at a depth of B*o feet from the
surface by the ordinary daylight pen
etrating the water. The area viewed
by the lenses at the bottom of the tub*
varies according to the amount of
light. The water at the bottom of
the sea Is often clearer than at the
surface, as sediment can sink In still
water, whereas at the surface sand and
other matter is kept In solution by
the constant movement of the waves,
the force of which Is not felt a few
feet beneath the aurfacc. This la pe
cullarly ths case in the water sur
rounding the British coast.
The hydroscope Is also llksly to prove
of considerable use on war vessels. A
• qhe can be fitted Into the renter of
a vessel, one end of which will load
to the captain's bridge and the other
will penetrate the bottom of the ves
sel and have an extension that can be
thrust out and drawn back as lenses,
which will be somewhat different from
the apparatus Illustrated, are drawn
up flush with the bottom of the vessel

In a lifetime, and among them are
numbered many of the worst cases In
the country. And I cure because I
have at my command a power over
disease so great that Its extent can
hardly be realized. Recently I re
ceived this letter from Mrs. C. M.
Weston, of Burnegat, N. J., which will
give you an Idea of how many patients
regard my power to cure:
“ 'I am so glad to be able to tell you
that I am well. I can hardly realize
that I am cured. I had been told so
many times by doctors that my case
was Incurable and that I could never
got well that 1 was almost hopeless.
Still, I always felt that if I could find
a doctor who knew how, he could cure
me, and I found him in you. Most doc
tors do not know how. I think they
know a little about common diseases,
but when U comes to the serious and
difficult ones, such as mine were, they
•say they arc Incurable, und never
learn anything about them. My res
toration to health has surprised all
who know me. No one thought I was
really being cured when I told them I
was, hut they see It now and cannot
account for it. One of the doctors
who uttended me last winter was the
most surprised of all, as he thought
iny heart trouble, complicated by
bronchitis asthma, and catarrh of the
stomach, would surely kill me before
this. So you see how near death I
was, and that you literally saved me
from the grave. I also want to thank
you for your personal Interest und
care of my case. Your kind words of
encouragement did me a world of good
when I was so weak. 1 am writing to
all my friends who are 111, urging
them to put themselves under your
care, for I know you cun cure them.’
"Another clergyman, the Rev. T.
Horrls, I). D,, of Harwood, Tex., whom
I cured of a complication of diseases,
writes to me, saying: T am much
stronger and more active than I have
been for years. I shall always thank
God and you as Ills servant for the
great benefits vou have conferred up
on me, and shall take great pleasure
In recommending you as one of the
most courteous, efficient, Christian
gentlemen whom I have ever known.
I shall always hold myself ready to
serve you as a beneficiary of your won
derful skill. Command me whenever
I can serve you In anything. May
God, our common Father, preserve
you long in the land of the living.'
Even doctors ure compelled to admit
that my power is greater than their
own medicines. Dr. J. C. Feather, M.
D., of Hheakleyville, Pa., was afflicted
with (hat terrible disease, locomotor
ataxia. He finally put himself under
my cure, and now writes me that he Is
cured and can walk without the
crutches he carried for so long. I
could go on indefinitely telling you of
case after case similar to these, but
these are sufficient to prove to unyone
that I have been able to restore health
In the face of what seemed certain
“But how about those who cannot
afford to come to New York to have
you treat them?”
“It does not make the slightest dif
ference. I cure them in their own
homes Just as easily and Just as surely
as If 1 went to them or they came to
me. Distance cannot weaken the heal
ing power I have. All that anyone
who is 111 In any way, from any cause,
has to do Is to write me a letter, ad
dressing Wm. Wallace Hadley, M. D.,
office 619 .1, 708 Madison ave.. New
York, telling me the disease they suf
fer from most or their principal symp
toms, age, and sex, and I will send
them a course of home treatment ab
solutely free of charge.”
"Surely you do not mean that you
give services and treatment free to
anyone merely for the asking?"
“Yes. I mean Just that. I helievo
that as a Christian It Is my duty to
God and man to help all who are In
need. When I have been given the
power to cure. I do not believe that I
have the right to make anyone waste
his money< on useless drugs when I
can heal him without them.We all owe
a duty to our fellow-men. We must
all serve In one way or another.
Where a rich man gives money, I give
health. I am not a millionaire, but I
am able to afford to do my share to
ward relieving the sufferings of man
kind. And I am happy to give freely
of my services wherever they are
needed. And I am especially anxious
to cure any poor mortal who has
been told that ills or her case is In
curable. that there Is no hope left on
earth. Or anyone who has grown
weary spending money on drugs and
doctors in a vain search for health.
If they will write to me and accept
my offer, there Is not only hope, but
an almost absolute certainty that they
need he sick no longer. And It Is a
blessing that my power makes a letter
do Just as much good as a personal

where It proved very satisfactory.
One of the meet romantic things yet
accomplished by the hydroscope and
the raisin* apparatus has been the
bringing to the surface of an old Span
ish galleon, one of a fleet sunk In the
Bay of Vigo In 1708. During the night
the old hulk rolled over, broke Into
pieces, and again sank to the bottom.
The metal bolts which held the tim

addition to this attempt on the old

were made with raising hsavy boilers
