OPIUM TRAFFIC INCREASES
Lieutenant Kvans, Ketorning From
Philippines, Describes Conditions
In Islands and Blame 'Native
Assembly for Law-Breaking.
VICTORIA. B. C. Oct. 23. (Special.)
That modern magazine rifles of high
gower, together with quantities of ammu
nition, are being run into the Philippine!
y wholesale and sold to the bloodthirsty
!Moros, while the American Revenue Pro
tective' Service is most inadequately
quipped for dealing with the dangerous
traffic. Is the word brought by Lieutenant
J. Evans, of the. United States Revenue
Service, who reached this city a few days
go, after many months' fighting the
gun-runners and the opium smugglers in
the Southern Philippines, Cebu being hla
Lieutenant Evans states that the smug
piling of opium since Its sale or manufac
ture In- the islands has been forbidden,
ias become very extensive and a. vast
mount of the contraband is now being
run. owing to the high price to which the
dllicit drug has been boosted by the re
strictive measures. Opium now ?lls
for J13 a tael, about 37 grammes, in the
Islands, and the profits to be made have
.produced many smugglers. There have
been a number of Important captures, the
dargest being the seizure at Manila of
tX.OCO worth of opium, landed secretly
In shafting of machinery and the hollow
drum of a winch consigned to the Par
sells Mining Company. In connection with
which two American citizens. Louis T.
Grany and William Kennedy, are under
arrest. The opium would probably never
hare been found but for the. Chinese for
whom it was smuggled tipping the reve
nue officers when they failed to secure
the drug for ! than the smugglers had
paid for It.. The Chinese In effect dotr-b!e-cross?d
the opium runners, thinking
to blackmail them Into giving up the
smuggled opium for less than cost.
S&ndakon. In Borneo, is the headquar
ters of the Illicit gun-runners and many
modern magazine rifles are landed In
lunari and small prahus on the south
ern Islands of the Philippines, the Moros
being good customers of the arm-smugglers.
The Moros are well supplied with
stood rifles at the present time, these hav
ing been bought from the smugglers at
from 309 to 600 pesos each, the high profit
having Induced many adventurers to en
rage In the trade. Wolf, an Irishman.
formerly Cb!ef of Police at Sandakan,
was one of the chief gun-runners, but he
was killed by Jlklrl. the outlaw, when
his band was annihilated some months
ago. Many remain, however, to carry
on the work.
Tli e Philippine Assembly buks the ef
forts to put down the contraband busi
ness, according to Lieutenant Evans. The
revenue officers have only a small Span
ish gunboat, one of the small vessels cap
tured during the war, an out-of-date lit
tle tub. which steams about seven knots
and can scarcely overhaul a prahu. to
combat the gun-running and smuggling
among the many hundreds of small
islands of the group.
Efforts have been made again and again
to secure an appropriation for three fast
cruisers for revenue Bervlce, but the
Philippine Assembly has always been
able successfully to prevent the passing
of an appropriation for this purpose. The
Philippines' on the whole are far from
loyal, says Lieutenant Evans. There
will be no Insurrection of conseauence,
owing to the manner in which the United
States has control of the islands, but
there will be sporadic outbreaks.
"Do you know that when a band con
cert takes place In Manila by a native
band,' he says, "instead of ending the
programme with the "Star-Spangled Ban
ner," the Filipinos play Aguinaldo's
march, and all come to attention and all
take off their hats?"

Labor Federation Hears More Rea
sons for Industrial Education.
Same Training for Rich
and Poor Alike.
"WASHINGTON, Oct. 23. Social and in
dustrial conditions In the United States
demand that Industrial education for rich
and poor alike should be democratic.
This conclusion was reached by many
leaders of worklngmen and Industrial ed
ucators addressing the American Fed
eration of Labor's committee on Indus
trial education today.
Suggesting that European countries
were far ahead of the United States in
the matter of fitting- young girls and
boys for a trade, Charles F. Richards,
of New York City, originator of the Na
tional Society for the Promotion of In
dustrial Education, argued that the com
mittee should fight for a plan that would
relieve the American schoolboy of the
confusing plight of not knowing what to
do when turned away from school.
He declared that more than one-fourth
of the boys left the public schools In New
York before graduation because they
"were sick of it." This he regarded as
due to lack of Industrial training.
President James Dnucan, of the Fed
eration, strongly Indorsed the proposition
of Introducing industrial training into the
last grades of the grammar schools.
