The annual rainfall In North China
is most variable, both In quantity
unci tho months in which it mils. In
the best years there is a good ritlri
full during April and Muy and a
heavier one belwoen the middle ot
July and tho middle of Soptembcr.
In neither of these periods Is the
rainfall excessive. Then comes a
year pf. floods, or more of ton a year
of drought. Usually tho drought
oxtends over comparatively small
ureas, but owing to tho lack of cheap
transportation tho peoplo in the
drought area aro dying of starvation
while a few hundred miles away
there is a suplus of crops. Tho con
struction of railways will alleviate
those conditions; but in vlow of the
present conditions all tho land possi
bio is irrigated, this being done in
a most crude and primitllvo manner
There hao beon no irrigation
works constructed of any importance
or size, and tho Chineso Govern
ment has no share and has taken
not the slightest interest in this
most Important and vital economic
question. The primitivo work which
is dono is performed usually by small
village communities or individual
farmers. Tho methods employed are
much tho same in all North China,
and have apparently changed none
during tho last 2000 years. .Stone
cut pictures of "2000 years ago show
the people raising and handling the
water in oxactly tho same manner
as tho work is dono today and also
show that tho form of tho agricul
tural implements has not in any way
The principal crops of, North China
are knowllaug (broom corn), millet,
wheat, sesame, ground nuts, beans,
black peas, cotton and buckwheat
.Of grians, five varieties are grown,
and all most excellent in their season;
small hard pears, several varieties
of peaches, only fair in quality; ap
ples ,rathor tasteless, lacking in
flavorMind of poor keeping quality;
plums and persImmons,four varieties,
well flavored, large, and most dell
clous. Thoy are grown inall parts
of China, but the best come from the
province of Shansi.' There is this
curious thing about these porsim
mons-the greater portion are grown
from crafts on the "black date" tree.
Tho young date tree is.cut off square
and tho graft made on top. This
results in a most curious appearance
of a mature persimmon orchaid. To
a height of about four feet there is
tho rough, dark bark of thedate tree
and tlitm a sharp change to the
light colored smooth bark of the
pot simmon tree. Thoro arc water
melons in great quantities red and
yollow, and several varieties of small
yellow white melons, and all of the
ordinary vegetables-potatoes, sweot
potatoes, squash, pumkin, carrots,
parsnips, turnips, tomatoes, onions,
garlic, string beans, artichokes,
celery, cabbago and rico. The rice
crop howevor, is very small In North
China. The natives raise no straw
berries or other small fruit, except
ing near foreign settlements, such as
Tien tsin or Peking, where they have
been introduced by foreigners. On
all irrigated land south of tho Great
Wall the Chinese raiso at least two
crops a year. Consular Report.

Puync Oppoges Otic Bill
Acting Governor Atkinson has
received advices from Washington
indicating ihat Congrcssamun Scrciio
E. Payne, chairman of ihe Way, and
Means Cominiitee'ls unyielding in Us
0pp0Silh.11 to tho revenue n funding
proposition which the Hawaiian dele
gation is urging. Payne is a very
influential member of the House, and
his opposition Is a very serious mat
ter, but, as tho acting governor puts
it, oven If the refunding bill is de
feated, tbe effort to pass it will have
educated Congress to a rrullz.iii f
how Hawaii has been neglected in
"Cong.'ssinau Payne's view is that
Hawaii is not. entitled to special
elief, like the bankrupt former
Spanish colonies are," said Atkinson.
"He shows that the balance of tiado
is in favor of Hawaii and says that
the Tei ritory should therefore be
ready to pay taxes like other states
and territories, and secure needed
appropriations from Congress In tho
"This would bo a good argument
but for tho fact that Congress does
not give us tho appropriations. That
Is tho wholo basis of Carter's Idea in
tnls refunding business, and that is
tfhat wo are urging upon Congress,

"Even supposing that tho effort to
pass the refunding bill fails, our re
presentations to Congress will have
an effect that will make them well
wocth while. Mr. Payne's own argu
ment against it requires, to make it
roasonablo, that Congress shall give
us appropriations moro nearly in
proportion to what we pay in to the
government, and this Congress has
not beon doing. At any rato wo have
matte mat known and if we don t got
tho eoventy-tlve per cent wo shall
get moro appropriations;"
