When the PPM measurement service was launched, the non-commercial stations were listed and KPCC has experienced very respectable ratings. The very up-to-the-moment two hour show has four producers who work on the current events magazine-type program every day.
Jackie Oclaray has been with me more than a decade. The producers KPCC hires usually have a track record producing somewhere else, or they've done fill-in in the past. Some have been interns while attending Pasadena City College. Putting together the two hour show is just one part of what Larry and his team have to do on a daily basis. One person is heavily devoted to that, but all four produce segments for the show.
We are constantly brainstorming ideas because we may do six topics in a two-hour show. We often book two or more guests per segment, that's often 12 we have to line up in an average day. The producers also put together all the folders with my study materials for the segments.
It's like a daily conveyor belt - coming up with the topics, lining up the guests, debating how we want to come at the subject and how we can advance the story. It is tremendously challenging preparing for all these topics. How is AirTalk put together every day? We get off the air at noon and then have an editorial meeting about the next day. On the day we had lunch at the Ocean View Restaurant in Montrose, Larry revealed they already had an author booked for the final minute segment the next day.
By later in the afternoon or early tomorrow morning one or all of those may be replaced by other things because when we get in at 8 a. Typically our first half hour is breaking news from the morning and we're booking guests right up until air time. Larry said the show is always in a fluid state.
Mantle has a unique relationship with KPCC's news director. Technically he answers to the program director, Craig Curtis , but so much of how the station sounds - being news oriented - falls to Glickman. He will make suggestions all the time. He comes in every morning with a list of possible stories for us.
His job is the totality of what KPCC is doing. He has to make sure what we are doing on AirTalk is fitting into what Patt Morrison is doing in the afternoon with her show and what NPR is doing with its magazine programs.
Paul has the big picture of what we're doing and how it all fits together. Larry praised Glickman for his ability to figure out a way to take national and international stories and to localize them. People tune into a particular station because they know what they are going to get.
They're looking for consistency and reliability. We don't want KPCC to sound like different stations throughout the day, but the station does want its hosts to be distinct. KPCC is constantly trying to meet the expectations of the listener. Larry emphasized that they are mission-driven and that affects everything they do. We have to be grounded in that reality and at the same time operate as a non-profit.
Our reason for existing is to serve the community and to find ways to do that where other broadcasters are not. This gives us a lot of opportunities. We also have the luxury of significant air time, if we think a topic is worth it, but we don't want to rehash what people have been seeing on cable news. With healthcare on everyone's mind, I wondered how his listeners came down on the subject.
Opinions are all over the place. Some are very disappointed and they wanted a much more robust plan. Others feel that it's over-reaching. I see my job as bringing together all these different points of view so the listener can hear the strongest possible perspectives, then come away with an informed opinion. Larry addressed the issue of an NPR station being left-leaning or politically liberal in editorials and subject matter.
Public radio did begin as community and college broadcasting, with activist and educational roots. I think that established the early-on reputation of public radio as being the bastion of the left. As public radio has grown, and the size of the audience has grown, it's by no means ideologically based. It is much more diversified. The fact that I'm on opposite Rush Limbaugh does mean that many conservative listeners are going to be listening to him.
However, I think it would be a real disservice to say we are going to serve those listeners who don't like Rush Limbaugh. We don't want to limit ourselves in any way. Larry said he is not an advocate for any political point of view. I come out of radio. I've loved radio since I was a kid going to Hollywood High School. Mantle originally wanted to be a minister. In all of his environments he has loved taking both sides of a subject.
He was active in school debates. Our program is a place for exploring ideas from all perspectives, so that our listeners get exposed to the strongest arguments from all points of view.

In Beecher's case, he may have been exaggerating the amount he got from reselling the half-pounds of opium.
Customs office in Ogdensburg, NY. Gardner apparently gets out of this by claiming that it was part of his official duties but is then arrested again, for arranging the smuggling of another pounds of opium from Canada to Tacoma on the steamer George Starr. At his trial on June 29, he is accused of trying to cover his tracks by sending the opium to Wallula in Eastern Washington by train, then to Portland, then to Seattle. He is further accused of entering into a conspiracy with other customs inspectors.
Beecher, Gardner's superior, is not named as a member of the conspiracy but agrees to be a witness for the defense. On O October 6, Gardner's lawyer, J. Charles Haines of Chicago, is arrested in Seattle for having removed the original pounds from Ogdensburg; he presumably has brought it to Washington State and passed it to Gardner.
No Chinese are mentioned in the relevant newspaper articles. It is then either sold to Chinese of shipped to Portland and San Francisco for transportation East in trunks, valises, etc. It found an undeclared quantity of opium and seized it and the vessel. The sale and use of opium did not become illegal in the U. It was banned in British Columbia a year earlier, in Repackaging of imported opium in Victoria's Fisgard Street Chinatown, mostly for reshipment to the U.
Harbor as secretly and mysteriously as when she sailed from that place six weeks ago, heavily laden with opium and Chinese. Her officers and crew will give no information regarding the cruise, but the United States Secret Service detectives who are in Victoria watching her movements learned through one of he seamen that the vessel had touched on the California Coast and at the Hawaiian Islands since leaving Victoria.
The case turned on events that had occurred two months earlier, in October of the same year, when a pound shipment of opium was loaded aboard the steamer Wilmington in Victoria, British Columbia. Suspicious of the shipment, a Victoria customs agent telegraphed ahead to the Astoria, Oregon customs house, located at the mouth of the Columbia River—the main waterway into the city of Portland. Working on a tip, the owners of the Wilmington headed downriver to retrieve the ship and dump its illicit contents.
But customs agents had already apprehended the shipment. Then began one of the largest nineteenth-century opium and immigrant smuggling cases on the West Coast. Of the Portland-British Columbia operation, one San Francisco newspaper declared, 'the [smuggling] has been carried to an extent and audacity little short of marvelous. As stated above, throughout the 19th century the use of opium was quite legal, though somewhat stigmatized, in both Canada and the U.
When the drug finally became illegal in the latter country in , the criminal penalties involved were aimed almost entirely at opium for smoking, considered to be a vice of the Chinese. Opium for drinking in the form of alcohol solutions, abused mainly by Caucasians rather than Chinese, was not criminalized in the U. Laudanum, every bit as addicting as opium, stayed legal as a prescription drug.
Paregoric a camphorated opium extract continued to be classified as an over-the-counter drug until Until then it could legally be sold without a prescription to anyone who asked for it. Stevens, alias Tuttle, W. Cree, and Alfred Larson, all of Seattle, were arrested. Stevens is charged with being the principal.
His methods, it is stated, were unique. Chinese merchants at Victoria imported the opium, and it was landed during the night at a point near Seattle. Stevens had two skeleton pianos, it is said, and two large iron safes into which the opium was packed. The receptacles were then shipped by freight to four fictitious names in Portland, where the distributors got possession of the opium. Even the dullest customs agent, one would think, would eventually have become suspicious about two large iron safes, not to mention a pair of unplayable "skeleton" pianos, being shipped back and forth repeatedly between Seattle and Portland].
Imagined opium "den" from an publication. Like many such visual and verbal images, it is partly racist in intention, depicting Chinese as being astoundingly and unbelievably depraved. Tray with opium smoking equipment: Pieces of opium cans and sherds of opium pipe bowls are found during just about every excavation of early Chinese sites in the U.

In the meantime, this drawing, from Louis J. Note that some of: Beck's terms are not understandable to modern Cantonese speakers. Incidentally, readers should be cautious about buying old opium pipes from antique shops or on the Internet. The great majority of such pipes were destroyed long ago by opium sellers and addicts seeking the "yen pox," the tarry residue, inside.
Such residues, though unpleasant-tasting, still contained enough opiate alkaloids to satisfy users' craving for the drug. Hence, almost all "opium pipes" currently on the market are either recent reproductions or for tobacco rather than opium. The lack of erotic behavior or other intense interaction is realistic.

The growing of poppies and the production of raw opium does not concern us here. It is enough to say that the old Anglo-Indian monopoly had been broken by the late 19th century but that opium from Patna and Malwa in eastern and western India, produced under the tight control of the colonial British government, was still greatly preferred by the world's opium smokers. The Indian products, especially the Patna kind, fetched a considerably higher price than opium from other poppy-growing areas such as Egypt, Persia, Turkey, and China itself.
Even more prestigious were Indian opiums refined in Hong Kong, where the water and master refiners were thought to be the best in the world. This refining process does concern us, because the end result, opium "boiled" or "cooked" and packaged by a small number of Hong Kong firms, had a central influence on the economies and lifestyles of many North American Chinese in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Opium refining was not confined to eastern Asia. Among the places where it was done on a large scale but reputedly with less concern for quality were Victoria, Vancouver, and New Westminster in British Columbia, ideally located for wholesaling or smuggling their products to the United States.
The province's close connections with Britain must have given it an advantage in getting raw opium from the world's most famous opium-growing areas, Patna and Malwa in British India. Whether all British Columbia opium really came from there is not so clear. The low price for which it sold might suggest otherwise. One of the first North American researchers to recognize the importance of brand consciousness in the North American opium trade was Priscilla Wegars of the Asian American Comparative Collection at the University of Idaho, at which the above can seals were photographed.
By assembling a large collection of excavated opium cans, each marked with impressed brand name seals, from archaeological sites in the western United States, she has been able to show that smokers continued to be loyal to Fook Lung and Lai Yuen, in spite of their higher price, for many decades, that cans of these high-prestige brands were often reused, and that a major lower-priced competitor was Victoria in Canada, where a number of companies refined opium and sold most it for smuggling into the United States.
The general subject of opium cans is discussed below. Sheung Wan is a well known part of Hong Kong Island. Refining and Testing Opium in China, The names and stamped seals of Hong Kong opium producers were among the first internationally recognized brand names in the history of Asia.
From the s onward they were recognized in North America as well. These language and regional ties should have given Wo Hang a major advantage in selling opium to smokers in the U. The size of opium cans was standardized. The retailers, although regarded at the time as extraordinarily greedy, seem to have been satisfied with a smaller per-unit profit than any modern seller of alcohol in shops and bars.
Remains of such cans, generally well preserved, are common at archaeological sites where Chinese North Americans formerly lived, both in rural mining districts and in urban Chinatowns.
Christopher Merritt of the University of Montana has recently Note 2 made a discovery that helps to explain why excavated opium cans tend to be in good condition: Merritt analyzed 17 cans of this kind from four sites in Montana. None of the cans were of iron protected by a layer of tin -- hence, they were not the kind of container that was called a "tin" in Britain and in those days, Canada or a "tin can" in America.
Instead, all of Merritt's cans were made of brass, an alloy of copper and zinc. The seams of the cans had been soldered with a lead-arsenic alloy such as was commonly used as soldering material in both China and the West. Merritt suggests that the lead and arsenic might have had negative effects on the health of opium smokers. He is right in theory, and the copper could have had negative effects as well. However, cans of all kinds for instance, salmon cans and corned beef were regularly sealed with lead solder in those days, and those eating the contents of such cans were exposed to much greater quantities of poisonous metals than were opium smokers.
On the positive side, the copper, zinc, and lead had antimicrobial and antifungal properties that must have helped to protect the opium inside the cans. Their resistance to corrosion meant that opium cans could be, and often were, reused. Priscilla Wegars in conversation has suggested that this could mean retail fraud by sellers who repackaged cheap Victoria opium to pass it off as the more costly Hong Kong product.
We do not doubt that in many cases she is correct. However, the re-use and resealing of old cans must also have had more innocent motives.
As shown by the example on the far left of the above photograph, resealing sometimes left so many obvious signs of repair that such cans would not have fooled even the most naive of opium addicts. Opium can from private. Entrance to opium shop in San Francisco? Fake Opium Brands in San. We have also registered in Hong Kong. We have been patronized by customers locally and abroad and are famous among them.
Lately we have heard that some shameless people are using Lai Yuen and Fook Lung marks on counterfeit opium, trying to take away our business and cheat the people of the four quarters.
Now they dare to use our companies' names, falsely claiming that they belong to a San Francisco branch; their intention is to pass as pearls even though they are just fish eyes. If we do not alert the public, customers might buy their products by mistake and suffer no slight losses.
We are here to notify the public by having this announcement in the newspaper. We hope you the honorable readers will know that our Fook Lung and Lai Yuen companies do not have other branches in other cities. The products that are shipped to San Francisco are handled solely by our agent, a Westerner, H. You should find that his name appears on the tax stamp adhering to the opium can. Those who buy Fook Lung and Lai Yuen opium must identify the right stamp, trade mark, and the fragrance of the opium to avoid making mistakes.
This is our profound wish. It purports to be from the memoirs of a retired opium smuggler who formerly had carried the drug by boat from British Columbia to Washington State before making his great discovery. The editors do not doubt that every word of his tale is true. I knew what kind of bottom could be counted on at every practicable landing and whether the shore was shelving or sheer. I learned the location of the most secluded coves and where a smuggler could run in and lay low up a creek when a revenue cutter threw up her smoke too close.
That is a part of the education of the successful smuggler in those waters. I learned all the data well and profited by it. But one day I narrowly escaped being captured. They gave me a hard run and against my better judgment I dropped overboard in deeper water than I judged to be altogether safe.
But I found bottom and my breathing tube was long enough to rise above the water. I found myself walking on a sea bottom paved with cans of opium. At that particular point among the islands the revenue cutters have been accustomed to waylay the smuggler on their return from British Columbia, and there in their frantic haste to remove incriminating evidence, the hard pressed fugitives have been tossing overboard year after year whole boatloads of the expensive cans of poison.
This practice kept up for forty years had resulted in a tremendous deposit of canned opium. The sea floor was literally paved with the precious little cans. You see the point was so well watched that the smugglers dared not return to recover their wealth. So they charged the loss up to bad luck and forgot the existence of the submarine deposit. The next question was the means of converting it into cash. It was a sort of crossroads of the marine tracks and at certain stages of the tide the only practicable route for south-bound boats.
It was obvious that the utmost care must be taken in raising the treasure if my father's son was to profit by the enterprise.
Having never been captured I was not personally known to the revenue officers, hence was able to put into effect a harmless little stratagem which worked perfectly. I secured a large scow decked over and on this I built a handsome cabin making a quite luxurious house boat.
I then enlisted the assistance of a trusty friend. We laid in a prodigal supply of expensive fishing tackle, bird guns, and camping paraphernalia, then rigging ourselves out in modish attire, we had our house boat towed to the scene of the opium cache and anchored close in shore. Soon a revenue agent on watch in that locality came aboard and, after sampling our prime whisky and choice cigars, departed in the best of humor. Nothing wrong about us. We were just a pair of debonair and jolly young fellows--rich young swells--house-boating for pleasure.
Every night I spent hours under water and my partner steadily hauled up baskets full of opium cans which he stowed safely away beneath the deck of the scow. Three months of nightly labor exhausted the field, but by this time the scow was well laden. Towed into a lonely cove near the city of Seattle, the cargo was easily transferred to those obscure channels of trade where vice pays the bills and always seems to be well supplied with money.
Who would suspect a couple of wealthy young house-boating tourists of being implicated in the smuggling of opium? Certainly such a suspicion never crossed the minds of the sapient revenue officials. At one point we came upon a sloop which had been scuttled in about six fathoms of water.
There was a heavy cargo of opium aboard, and what gave us an unpleasant shock, two drowned Chinese. Ugly stories are circulated among the islands as to the propensity of the smugglers to leave the helpless Chinese to drown when the revenue cutters press them close, but this was the only evidence we ever discovered of such tragedies.
Many a revenue agent sampled our good cigars and laughed at our jokes, and each succeeding summer they joyously welcomed us and our hospitable house boat to those remote and loggy wilds.
As we had by this time a million dollars apiece in the Elliott Bay National bank, we sold the luxurious houseboat and returned to the paths of financial rectitude.
While there was considerable profit in the business, I should never have made a competence but for a fortunate chance. Thus my experience disproves the theory that industry and economy are certain to lead to success. But when the goddess Chance smiled upon me my fortune was made.
I had a rubber breathing apparatus fitting over my head. A tube led up to the surface of the water and bobbing around among a lot of seaweed or rushes on a shallow bay it was hard to discover which was the rubber breathing tube and which the innocuous seaweed especially when you did not suspect the nature of the stratagem. When a revenue cutter's smoke loomed up dangerously close to me, I'd drop the cans overboard, then with leaden weights on my feet I d plunge in also and calmly wait while the emissaries of the law confiscated my empty skiff and steamed away.
It was dead easy and reasonably profitable. Man is a curious animal: I couldn't smoke while waiting for the revenue officers to go away. You see, I was like those new coast defense cannon. I was built on the disappearing plan. Mackenzie King, Deputy Minister of Labour and a future prime minister of Canada, traveled to Vancouver to study the opium business. He went partly in response to the fact that two of those making claims for reparations after Vancouver's anti-Asian riots of the previous year were opium "manufacturers" i.
The Canadian government, which for several decades had collected major revenues from imports of raw opium and, indirectly, even more taxes from allowing refined opium to be smuggled into the U. Indignation mounted during and after Mackenzie King's investigation. The Canadian Parliament outlawed the opium trade that very same year. Several paragraphs of Mackenzie King's report are especially relevant: The crude opium is imported from India in coco-nut shells, it is 'manufactured' by a process of boiling into what is termed 'powdered' opium and subsequently into opium prepared for smoking.
One or two of the factories have been in existence for over twenty years, but the majority have been recently established. It is asserted by the owners of these establishments that all the opium manufactured is consumed in Canada by Chinese and white people, but there are strong reasons for believing that much of what is produced at the present time is smuggled into China and the coast cities of the United States.
However, the amount consumed in Canada, if known, would probably appall the ordinary citizen who is inclined to believe that the habit is confined to the Chinese and by them indulged in only to a limited extent. I saw evidences of the truth of these statements in my round of visits through some of the opium dens of Vancouver. Like other Canadian government personnel before him, Mackenzie King was evidently concerned that Americans might react negatively to an official admission that the great bulk of the opium imported by and taxed in Canada was destined for re-export to the U.
This must be why he suggests, implausibly, that quantities of the drug were being smuggled from Canada back to China. His emphasis on opium smoking by white women and girls added a racy and racist fillip to the "social evil" argument. In reality, opium for smoking was insignificant as a threat to Canadian and American womanhood compared to opium as an ingredient in popular patent medicines, and no one was talking about outlawing those.
It seems likely that Chinese Canadians rather than opiate narcotics were the real targets of Mackenzie King's investigation. More Opium Brand Names: The website belongs to Reg and Roy, both of whom have important collections of Chinese artifacts. Most of their opium cans come from a late 19th century gold mining site in British Columbia, on the Fraser River not far from Williams Lake.
They write that the site yielded large numbers of Lai Yuen and Fook Long opium cans, plus a number of others with impressed seals that are unfamiliar to us.
The absence of characters for place names at the top of these seals may indicate that most are local Canadian brands. Reg and Roy are in contact with the finder of an even more extraordinary piece: Judging from this example, the labels were printed in Canada or the U. On this label, the shop name at the top is too broken up to be readable. The rest of the printed text is in reasonable condition, however.
We are surprised that anything like this could survive for long at an abandoned mining site. Yet the interior of British Columbia is not nearly as wet as the coastal areas. Reg points out that a can or "tin" found in Australia also had a paper label, quite similar to the one shown here: Assuming that they worked steadily for nights per summer for five years, and that a typical summer night in those days lasted 10 hours, the pair had to find an average of 80 cans per hour, or perhaps cans per hour allowing for a few short breaks during each working night.
As one would expect, North American Chinese, who were not poor by the standards of Chinese in China, could afford good opium and good pipes to smoke it with. The issue of opium quality is discussed elsewhere on this page. Judging from archaeological finds of cans, the quality seems indeed to have been high enough.
As for pipe bowls, the editors have not yet seen enough excavated examples to reach similar conclusions. Bowls for opium pipes have been found at most excavations of North American sites where Chinese lived during the 19th and early 20th centuries: Such clays, with good insulating properties and excellent thermal shock resistance, were traditionally seen by the Chinese as being especially well suited for making teapots and, in the 19th century, for making bowls for opium pipes as well.
Following this incident, which took place soon after she first reached Shanghai in the s, Hahn deliberately became an addict, the lover of an aristocratic poet, and an expert on the opium habit among China's upper classes. Such bowls therefore had to be easily removable.
Serious smokers usually had many more bowls than pipes, and the best bowls -- almost all of Yixing-type ceramic see below -- became collectors' items, cherished as much as fine teawares in China or the best meerschaum and briar tobacco pipes in Europe.
Certain books and websites insist on calling the bowls "dampers," even though that term was not used traditionally and has a quite different meaning in connection with flues and fireplaces in the English-speaking world.
Our guess is that damper represents a misunderstanding by some non-English speaker, who believed that the bowl somehow made the opium vapor more humid. As that part of a pipe could not have such an effect, "bowl" seems to us a better term. All images are of the same pipe and bowl, Field Museum Bowl inserted in pipe. Bowl removed from pipe. Top with "rimmed" hole in center.
Bottom with maker's stamps. Opium pipe with a Yixing-type clay bowl in the Field Museum's collection. Thus far, the editors have only looked at a handful of opium pipe bowls from Chinese North American sites that have readable inscriptions, in the form of seals stamped into the clay before firing, showing where they were made. We did not expect, therefore, to find that several pipes in this small sample come from ceramic centers that were and are famous for high-quality, high-status products.
Even more surprising are a pair of pipe bowls in the collection of the Asian Archaeological Comparative Collection in Moscow, Idaho. Shekwan , whose kilns were famous for making a low-fired buff- to reddish brown stoneware that competed with the Yixing kilns in eastern China in sculpture, desk equipment, miniature landscape items, and upscale flower pots.
Shiwan was certainly capable of producing opium pipe bowls that would have competed with those from Yixing. And yet, here are not one but two examples from sites in the United States. It would seem that excavations in North America can reveal facts about Chinese history that are little known in China itself. One came from a cache of opium paraphernalia found sealed behind a wall in the former Wing Sang store in Vancouver's Pender Street Chinatown.
The fact that the material had been hidden so carefully indicates that this example dates to the period when smoking opium was illegal in Canada i. The other Yixing pipe bowl was found at a historic Chinese habitation site. It appears to have been used and may be earlier than the other.

The Caucasians might have owed money to their Chinese suppliers or buyers but were not working for them. White smugglers put up their own money, took their own legal and financial risks, bribed rheir own customs officials, and earned the profits of real middlemen, not the wages of mere employees or "mules.
In only a few recorded cases did Chinese do the actual smuggling. By far the best publicized of these cases was that of a westernized upper-class lady, Suzy Sui'e Ying Kao. Time Magazine reported the story in this way: Watching the San Francisco skyline was a young Chinese woman--Mrs. She was returning from a visit to her homeland. When the liner docked she, a lady of some importance, requested courtesy-of-the-port, that her baggage might be passed and delivered at once.
She pointed to the imposing official seals that marked each of her seven wardrobe trunks and four suitcases, claimed diplomatic immunity. The Customs men communicated with the State Department, which verified their belief that diplomatic immunity is granted only to ambassadors or ministers and their wives, not to vice-consular ladies.
Promptly the agents broke the seals, opened the trunks, lifted out laces, silks, and many a small tin box. Kao, high born and college-bred, daughter of the Chinese Minister to Cuba, expressed polite surprise.
The tin boxes, she explained, had been placed in her trunks by influential friends in China, to be carried as gifts to other influential friends in the U. Asked who these friends were, she refused to tell. She would be killed surely if she did, she said.
The searchers found a total of 2, cans about 1, pounds of opium in her baggage, making it a very large seizure by contemporary standards. Suzy Ying Kao may have been an amateur but was a big thinker anyway. Collector Beecher's haul of 3, cans back in broke all records see above. Ying Kao's 2, cans did not quite equal that but was still enough to put her into the big leagues of opium smugglers.
In his hand are two oval opium cans. Then I saw that what I had taken for yarn between the two needles he manipulated was actually a kind of gummy stuff, dark and thick. As he rotated the needle ends about each other, the stuff behaved like taffy in the act of setting; it changed color, too, slowly evolving from its earlier dark brown to tan. At a certain moment, just as it seemed about to stiffen, he wrapped the whole wad around one needle end and picked up a pottery object about as big around as a teacup.
It looked rather like a cup, except that it was closed across the top, with a rimmed hole in the middle of this fixed lid. Heh-ven plunged the wadded needle into this hole, withdrew it, leaving the wad sticking up from the hole, and modeled the rapidly hardening stuff so that it sat on the cup like a tiny volcano. He then picked up a piece of polished bamboo that had a large hole near one end, edged with a band of chased silver.
