Chnnjrcs at Tahiti.
Papeete, Tahiti, June 20. The
French Government has decided to
modify its colonial policy with re
ference to this section. The local
government will henceforth assume
the burden wholly of the expenses
of the civil, judicial and military
branches. The latter force will be
reduced to a 'score or more in the
near future. The naval contingent
will probably be dispensed with.
For many years France has con
tributed toward the support of the
local government. There are other
changes, notably the enlargement
of the Cabinet ol the Governor, and
the elimination of the popular as
sembly. The local authorities favor an
economical administration. Prob
ably the subsidy for the inter-island
service will be reduced trom 120,
000 francs to 50,000 or less. In that
event, two 120-ton gasoline ves
sels will be acceptable to the Gov
ernment, in place of its steamer of
450 tons capacity.

agents are only allowed on thet
land during working hours and for t
agricultural purposes. ,

gency. The title of the laud is
vested in the government and judg
ment must be entered. The gov
ernment gets the right to all water
