It Is now run by steam; but the water supply Is such that I believe we shall be able at some time to move all tho cars by electricity. I made a study of that problem while -1 -1 was Civil Governor of Formosa, and I find that we can put dams here and there In the mountains and make reservoirs which will give us a constant' fall all the year round sufficient to generate electricity for thfroad and at the same time not affect the lrrlaratlon of the country below." 'Tell me something about the ratlroadsj Tour Excellency." "When we took possession of the Island we found a little road C2 miles long running from Kelung to Shlnchlku. It was In bad condition and the route selected was so Inconvenient Inconvenient that we planned out this line running from one end of the island to the other. We began work at both ends and pushed forward night and day in order to complete It at the earliest possible time. In places we employed light railways temporarily, temporarily, using Chinese coolies to push the cars. Some parts of the road were vtry difficult to construct. We had to carry the track across the valleys on bridges, and to make some very long tunnels, but -we -we kept at It and the road la now complete. It was our original intention to take 10 years to build the road, but it has been -done -done in much less than that." "What did the road cost?" "In the neighborhood of $14,000,000 or $15,000,000. We shall build branch roads here and there and shall open up the whole of the settled part of the Island through railways." "What other improvements have you madeT" . .. , "A great many. We are practically making making a new island of Taiwan," said Dr. Goto. "And. what Is more, we are now miking the-Island the-Island the-Island pay Its own expenses, and It will In time pay for all its Improvements. We are putting roads everywhere. We have Introduced postofflccs Into all the 1SU6 there were oniy p.ui era around the coast of the ls'.and and regular regular connections with Fuchan. Amoy, Swatow and Hongkong. As a result of the good steamship communication and cur Improvements In the Island the commerce with Japan Is steadily Increasing, and a large proportlon.of the foreign goods comes from here. The imports of the island now amount to In the neihgborhood of SO.000.OCO yen and the exports are considerably more than that. More than one half of the imports imports come from Japan, and more than half cf the exports go there." "Is Formrsa a rich Island?" "Yes " replied Baron Goto.

I understand that Japan supplies .the world with that drug." -That -That Is true, and It Is also true mat most of th. supply comes from' Formosa, Within the past year or so camphor forests forests have been discovered in China, and there la a prospect of competition rrom that country. At present we have a mo-nonolr mo-nonolr mo-nonolr of the worlds trade, and the Gov ernment has control of the manufacture and sale in order to protect the industry. When we took possession ot tne isiana we found the camphor business In a precarious state. No efforts were made to spare the trees, and the crudest methods were employed employed In the manufacture. Now factories have been established in Formosa ana Japan, and the most of tn. proauci goes abroad, either direct or through Japanese porta. It used to go by way of Hongkong." "How much camphor does the world use in a yearr " "About 8,000.000 pAmds. Our revenue from tt amount to In th. neighborhood of $3,500,000 a rear. We restrict th. production production according- according- to the demand, and are thus enabled to keep up the price. The camphor trees of Formosa are said to cover aa area of anaay square miles, and we probably have enough to supply all that th. world will need tor a century to come." The conversation here turned to the optani question. The Japanese do not allow optuua to be moed anywhere except as rvrmonL Mobs Is smoked la Jspan proper and the authorities believe that they have adopted a policy which will eveataally wipe out the practice m Toraaosa- Toraaosa- This - policy was largely originated by Baron Goto, who la noted as a physician and as a sanitary aelenthst as well as a at s teaman.. Said net -I -I 1 had much to de with opium pa Uenta prior to my going -to -to Formosa, and for as long as three years or fined up to 3.000 yen. As It Is now. the Government imports and manufactures all the opium used. The list of smokers Is gradually de creasing ry deaths, and tn time we hope to entirely abolish the evil." CMxuse of Formosa. "Do you think that Chaia can abolish Its opium evil by its recent prcmo.iory liwaf" "No. It is an Impossibility. Tou cau have no Idea of the extent to , which opium Is used In some parts of China. When we took possession of Formosa there were b9 native and foreign Arms engaged In Im porting the drag. There were 60 or 70 dif ferent medicines containing opium which .... t . . 1 V.

Indeed, tt Is almost impossible impossible to stop the us. of th. drug erven when the man himself Is anxious to do so. The only way to handle the situation. It seemed to. me, was to have a registered list of those addicted to the practice and to have a certain amount of opium sold through th. Government to them by licensed officials. It la a crime to sell opium to those who are not so registered, and against the law for any on. to Import or manufacture it. AH this business IS a government monopoly and Infringement of th. law subjects one. t. a On. not exceeding 6.000 yen, or to Imprisonment Imprisonment with hard labor up to Ore ysnra. The Government grants special licenses lo habitual smokers, and any ons who smoke's without a license la liable to be Imprisoned hlbltlon. but I - objected to that on tne grounds that It would be Injurious to the people to suddenly stop the smoking and that such a prohibition could not be en forced. The result was our present poucy. "Olve me some Idea of the Chinee of Formosa. What kind of people are they, and now big a proportion of the population population T "They form the most of the Inhabitants. There are something like 3,000.000 of them, and only a few thousand savages.- savages.- The Chinese own all th. cultivated lands. They populate both town and country and they are the real working part of the Island. They are mostly farmers, over 2,000,000 of them being engaged In agriculture. There are about 200.000 merchants and 80.000 fish ermen. The laborers number something like 300,000, snd those engaged la manufacture manufacture about 00,000. "Have you many Japanese V "We have fifty thousand or so." "What are you doing to educate the people?" people?" , "We are establishing schools and trying to make the use of the Japanese language prevalent throughout the Island. We hav. a central language school at Taipeh In order order to teach Japanese to the natives and the native languages to the Japanese. This school has a normal branch which Is train ing Japanese teaehess for the native primary primary schools. Jt has a language branch, where students are trained for the civil service. We haye railway and telegraph sections. sections. We have also some schools for Jsp-anese Jsp-anese Jsp-anese children and some for native girls. We have established primary schools for native children all over the island, and they are largely attended." What Formosa Costa Japan. "Is Japan spending much money on Formosa?" Formosa?" "Not now," replied Baron Goto. "The Island Is self-supporting. self-supporting. self-supporting. It Is not only paying paying all of Its running expenses, but it has a surplus every year which we can devote to public improvement. We Intend to develop the island as much as we can and to spend in Formosa the taxes collected there, in addition to what I have mentioned we have already established a system of lighthouses about the coasts, we have Improved th. principal harbors, have dug sewers snd canals in the chief clUes, and have established established 11 hospitals and schools for training native physicians. The dredging of the Kelung harbor alone cost $1,000,000, and we have other works under way and in contemplation contemplation which require large expenditures. expenditures. Altogether the Island is materially Improving under our management." As 1 close this Interview I see a statement In the Talyo. a Japanese newspaper, mad. by Mr. Imal. one of the chief Formosan officials, officials, concerning the head hunters. He says that the aborigines have about half the land and that they number 100.000. There are nine tribes of them, divided ap Into thousands of - clans or families, each of which Is independent. The most vicious of the tribes Is the Atayal. This tribe still practices head hunting. Its members sally forth upon the people of the lowlands whenever they can break through the lis and bring back a head or so. Mr. Imal says that they use the human head as a sacrificial offering at the time of sowing millet, and that In marriage the would-be would-be would-be bride seeks the man who has taken the most beads. Indeed, the possession possession of human beads means influence, wealth and authority, for the owner. This man says that the savages do not like tls. Chinese, and that head hunting custom originated originated largely because the Chinese have overrun the Island and taken the best land a The savages were glad to see the Japanese come In, and some of the tribes are quite docile. Schools have been -established -established among them and men from certain tribes have lted Japan. Altogether. It Is doubtful whether Japan has lost more men In handling her savsgee) than we have lost with ours at the Philippines. Philippines. Since 1S00 there have been 14 big fights snd several thousand skirmishes. In these 282 Japanese and about 3.000 friendly Formosans have been killed, while about ti 000. 000 has been spent In defending th. boundary line. This line runs along tn. third mountain range, and there are five or six men In each guardhouse. The house, were formerly roofed with thatch, but(e savages set them on fire with burning arrows, arrows, and tuey are now covered with sod. The aborigines have firearms and are excellent excellent shots. They are becoming more and more quiet, and It hi believed that they will eventually be civilised. Fbank O. CAarajrTsm.

It ssi a as If she had become tired of tantalising him. for where tn hla previous attempts m the world he bad been surfeited surfeited with adventure Instead of gold, now he never had an adventure, while everything everything that Jie and Tom Bowling touched turned, itself Into wealth. - la less than aix months they nad disposed disposed of their entire cargo of trade stuff In exchange for gold dust an exchange that more than quadrupled their toveat-aeat toveat-aeat toveat-aeat The gold dust wsa exchanged for 400 auvea. whom they- they- took t South America without trouble and sold for a sum five times over the cost- cost- This one Toysge thus enriched "all concerned, concerned, and Roderick Random looked forward forward with eagerness to his return to England, England, where now there would be no obstacle obstacle to his marriags with Xandssn, But fortune had not yet done with nlm.

Tom Bpw ling rushed at him, seised him by the hand and cried: "Brother Random Random r" . It was. Indeed, Roderick's fsther. After the first Joy of th. dtsoovery had subsided subsided he explained that when he fled from England, heartbroken, he had deemed the child dead, as well as the mother. Having Having no reason to communicate again with his heartless father, he traveled about the world aimlessly till at last he reached South America, where he gained s fortune. Don Rodrlgo. as he was knows in Haines ayres hastened to convert all his estate bxto cash, realising 40.000.
