Many people, utter a long spell of"

"Whllo in Capo Town tho past

NO MORE IMPURE TEAS
WILL BE BKCBIVED 1ST
UNITED STATES. '
Tea-TaMere Will Reject All Not Vp
to Ntandard and Will Enforce llio
Non Act of Coiiicre.
Collector Wise of tho port of
San Francisco received recontly
from the Secretary of the Treasu
ry an important communication
with reference to the now aot of
Congress prohibiting the importa
tion of impure teas. The Treasu
ry Department is determined to
enforce tho aot, and the tea trade
of the United States will be revo
lutionized for the better.
The cheap and trashy grades of
tea will no longer appear in the
market, and while the effect will
be to raisothe price of this luxury,
the publio health will bo the
gainer thereby. (
The communication from the
Sooretary of the Treasury notifies
the Collector that there will be
shipped to him from New York a
line of samples of the standards
established by the Board of Tea
Experts. Tho information is also
given that the Collector of Cus
toms at Now Yerk is packing half
pound samples for sale to impor
ters and brokers. Collector Wise
is instructed to paok samples in
convenient half-pound packages
representing the full line of the
standards, which may be Bold to
importers and brokers at cost;
namely 20 cents per pound.
After May 1 of this year it shall
be unlawful to import into the
United States any tea below the
standard established by tho Trea
The aot of Congress was ap
proved March 2, 1897. It author
ized the Secretary of the Treasury
to appoint a board of seven
experts in tea to submit to him
standard samples of pure teas.
On their report be has established
the standards on their recommen
dation, and is now depositing in
the Custom-houses of New York
City, Chicago, San Francisco and
Buch other ports duplicate samples
of suoh standards, and a sufficient
quantity of other duplicate sam
ples to supply at cost the import
ers and dealers in tea at all ports
desiring the same.
The act provides further that
importers or consignees shall
furnish samples of all lines of tea
imported by them together with a
sworn statement, that the samples
are genuine, or suoh samples shall
be obtained by the examining
Should the tea be found inferior
to the established standard the
importer or consignee must give a
bond with sureties that he shall
export the tea outside the limits
of the United States within six
months. In the case of failure to
export the condemned tea within
six months, the Collector shall
cause the tea to be destroyed.
An appeal from the decision of
the tea experts may be
taken before a board of
three United States General Ap-
raisers to be designated by the
ecretary of the Treasury.
Teas on board ships for ship
ment to the 'United Spates at the
time of the passage of this hot
shall not be subject to its pro
visions. The grades of tens, as recom

lished by the Sooretary of the

There Will Be No, Exereliea In the
It baa been decided by the
Memorial Day committeo of Geo.
W. De Long Post, G. A. R., to
have no literary exorcises at the
Opera House in tho evening. The
reason is that after the arduous
marching in tho heat to and from
the cemetery, with the standing
Bomo time in that place between,
none of the members on return
ing homo will have any inclina
tion to go out again that evening.
Even at cost prico for lights and
caretaking, too, the expense of
hiring the theater would make n
sum that might bo moro usefully
expended. As with probably
from three to five war vessels in
port at the time, lesidea an un
usually largo turnout promised,
by the Hawaiian troops the
parade is likely to bo upon an un
exampled scale, the publio has no
right to complain of the omission
of exercises in the evening.
It is not given out who is to be
the orator of the day. Whoever
he may be, it is not desired that
he shall occupy more than
