United Press Association —Ky Electric Telegraph—Copyright. Sydney, May 25 On the arrival of the German steamer Prinz Waldemar, from Hong Kong, the Customs officials discovered 23 Chinese hidden m water tanks and coal buukors. Their names did not appear on the list of the crew, and they strongly resisted arrost, having to be dragged from their hiding places. Eeceived May 2(5, 10.28 a.m. Sidney, May 2G. The Waldenur's captain. says that the steamer was thoroughly searched after leaving Hongkong, and not a single otowaway was found. He is unable to account for their presence, unless that they were assisted by Chinese firemen aboard. One explanation is that the Chinese are so much alike that it is possible for stowaways to be' about without being distinguished. It is alleged that an organisation exists m China for sending Chinamen to Australia, and despite watchfulness, a considerable number manage to land. It ia also stated that the officers of ships trading between Australia and China have frequently been offered bribes to assist atowaways.
