" Fern Bias's! laqneat and Funeial. : Yesterday when Coroner'Bing arrived ' at Fen Sing's waahhonse with Bond's dead-wagon to remove Fen. Sing's dead body, he found a dozen or two Chinamen there who objected to tliO'romoval cause they said Fen Sin jf was "not dead but sleeping." The Chinamen then braced; the corpse up against the waQ, and two or three of them began to rob the body, and others to blew smoke into hit fan to at to restore him to conscious- ' acts, and a white man who stood by said that the' corpse 'opened his eyes and looked up at Colonel Bing, who was taking names of witnesses. A Chinaman, who teemed to have authority, politely told the Coroner and the dead-wagon driver that "there's nothing in this for you; yoVd better leave." They left, but afterward the "rubbers" gave Fen Sing up as a "gone coon," and this morning the Cononer "tat on" him. After picking up an- Intelligent jury he led them into the waahhonse, when one juryman who bafj'sat on" many dead Chinaman, inquired: "Colonel, isn't it necessary to see the bodyf "Oh, no; we have proof enough that he's dead,, and two Chinamen will awear to how he died. That's all we want Come on John and bring those two Chinamen," . answered Colonel Ring, who took the lead to M. H. Bond's undertaking rooms, when. the testimony was .taken. In the meantime the dead wagon drove np to Fen Sing! house with the coffin, and another objection waa raised. The Chinamen refused . to accept the coffin, neither would they allow the dead man lobe taken away. Tbey said that the time for Fen Sing to Quit his laundry bad not arrived. The wagon, therefore, was driven away with the, coffin in it and Mr. Bond told the mourners that when they were ready' for him they raid call him, but he did not want to be humbugged, Soon afterwards a met- enger summoned him, and Fen Sing was placed is the eoffin and taken to Chinatown. There the eoffin wai aet upon a bench in the middle of the street, where (he funeral oeremoniet were conducted by the Chinese priests. A Chinaman, who keeps a store, objected to having the corpse in front of his place, and be stormed around end orsated such a commotion that hit friends corted him away and loft tbt corps utter of the situation. The jury found verdict that death resulted from apoplexy.. .. PROMISED EXPOSURES! BIT FOR AXOTHER HITY fEXTtt ADXIMglOX. V. H. HeaeVa InterMtlnt; Hhow la the Baptist Caarra-He Make Peripatetic Splrltaallstat HieU lone, feat -Expovx" Very Little -Come A grain. Contrary to general expectation, the Baptist Church was not filled last nrjlit with anxious enquirers after the humbugs of alleged spiritualism. The church was about half filled. This circumstance goes to show that the majority of people prefer to witness the tricks and humbugs of the traveling mediums, and be mystified if hot converted to spiritualism by their cnt-aud'dried performances, to going to see the very tricks by which they are deceived, exposed. The Baptist Chnrch last night was devoted to an exposure of some of the tricks by which spiritualist mediums Jfambag the seekers after the supernatural, but the exposures last night were not many. The denunciation of the epiritualist medium a-he go about th country giving seances, was terrific and bitter and sweeping. Charles' H. Bead, who is exposing spiritualism, said that he taught H. Melville Fay and Annie Eva Fay all they know about the business they are in, and he said that H. Melville. Fay . is the Cnmminga-Braddon of. tho combination that showed at Mozart Hall, the divorced husband of Annie Eva Fay and the present lawful husband of Mrs. Carrie Sawyer, whose mediumship excited some curiosity here a few weeks ago. He said Miss Fay tried to buy some tricks of him when he called on her the other day.' Bead went on with great volubility and denounced medium after medium, and seemed as familiar with their damnable iniquities as he is with the Ten Commandments. He called them by name-Maud Lord, Flora Cook, Carrie Sawyer, Eva Fay, Katie King, the Eddy Brothers, Mary Huntoon, the President of the Re-ligio Philosophical Society of Chicago, S. 8. Jones; Isaac T. Rich and Luther Colby of the Banner of Light, Andrew Jackson Davis, and the whole crowd of them, and he recited brief histories of tome of their doings with great plainness of speech. He talked a long time, and had several copies of the Police Gazette, showing illustrations of crimes perpetrated by some of them, and he bad a copy of the New York Graphic of 1876, ahowing a full page of illustrations and exposures of Annie Eva Fay in all the tricks that he lays she performed with Professor Crookes, and a lithographic copy of the letter from Professor Crookes, that Miss Fay showed to the press of this city as her credentials. After he had tired the audience with much talk, he began to expose, but it was noticed and remembered that he had not a word to say against any to-called spiritualistic manifestations- that people experience in their own homes, when sitting for them in circles of their own friends. He said he would not denounce these, for he- knew spiritualists who were of the finest peo ple in the world, and te whom spirit' ualiam was a religion, He laid that he only denounced the professional mediums and montebanks who go about humbugging people and trying to make them think their departed friends return with vulgar and disgusting tomfoolery, t- . TBI PEEP ARATIOXS. The pulpit of the Baptist Church vM removed and the rostrum was built oula toward the pewa to as to give a larger stage. In the middle of the stage was a cabinet of rep curtains, which he said wai presented to him by a distinguished Frenchman in Paris. It waa somewhat similar to Miss Fay's. He had cords and musical instruments, etc He was assisted by a Miss Davia and the Rev. John Hooper. Taking a seat m a chai r be requested Miat Davis to tie his hands, and Mr. Hooper to tie his feet Read put his palms together and Miss Davis passed the cord twice around both wrists and then between bis hands, tightening it about hit wrists somewhat, and then tied three or four knots. Mr. Hooper fastened his feet very securely to the legs of the chair and then drew Read's hands down between bis knees and tied him to the lower rung of the chair in front Road had tbt appearance of being pretty securely fattened, as cords were alto passed about hit armt and tied to the back of the chair. The lights were put out and turned on again, and all the manifestations that the mediums give when tied up, were promptly given. By and by he ahowed how easily he could slip hit hands out of the ropes, perform the tricks and get back again in a few seconds. . The audi, ence wai thoroughly entertained, and teemed as fully mystified at any audience ever waa with the spiritualistic mediums, He also took a ring from his finger and put it in bit ear, and then, tied the ring info a handkerchief and flung it into the audience. He pat on coats and did everything as well as any. medium, but bis hands were, in the first place,, tied more carelessly than any medium's hands that hat mystified an audience in years. He also showed how rings are pasted on to a committee-man's arm by the mediums, and it was limply a tlight-of-band performance, too plain to be interesting. He would frequently complain of his hands hurting him for being tied te tight, and all at once he slipped hit hands out of the cords and in the full light twanged the guitar, banged the tambourine, blew the organ, and ajngled the bells. Then he asked the audience if he thought their dead frieodt would be likely to manifest themselves in that way if they could re. turn. These are all the "phenomena" that he exposed. foil am mof, .'. i He went on to do other tricks, and got the audience very deeply interested in his materialisations, but he had not timt to explain them. He had spent too much time in talking, and had given what he thought was the money's worth. If the audience would come again be would tell how tbey wen done. One of these wai draining a glass of wstcr, putting tns gleet on hit head and patting his arm through the nog of the chair while bis. hands were tied and filled with rice. The othen were bit miterialisationt and slats writing, Be gave so explanation to them. The communication he got wai from Emperor Norton, and it wai sensible and very logiblj written the best spirit-writing ever teen. The writing was done while Mr. Hooper held the slate down on the top of the table. , . THE MATERIALIZATIONS. Read's materializations were . very mystifying, but tbey were first rate, and better than anr that have been shown by traveling mediums. The faces that appeared seemed" from observation at a distance of about ten feet, to be masks trimmed np and shown between the curtains. The other forms seemed to be living human beings tricked out for tab-' leaux. The IIesald representative observed them a distance of from abont ten feet od his conclusion was that they were real persons, notwithstanding the performance of the man in the gallery. Looking into the open cabinet, as seen by tho audience, it appeared to be about live feet . deep, but looking down on the ! outside , it seemed ' eight or ten feet deep. There seemed to be two compartments to the cabinet in the innermost one of which confederates might have been. concealed.. If it bad been a spiritual performance this ex-, planationwonldbe sufficient, but at it was an exposure of spiritualism and as Mr. Read declared, on his word of honor, that no one would enter the cabinet, it may bo safer not' to conclude how the materializations were performed, as no doublcc-abinet exposition would be deemed adequate.- When Mr. Read waa manipulating the curtains and appearing to give directions to the man in the gallery, and to harry him up, the enrtains occasionally parted and white ' objects . were seen within the cabinet, moving about as if preparing the tableaux. After the show was over Mr. Read bad trouble in keeping curious persons from nocking all over the platform and examining the cabinet and some pretty sharp, plain and earnest talk was indulged in. He promises to make everything plain to those who keep np their attendance on his entertainments, but he would not give away anything last night that was worth keeping. Commercial Notes.
