cured six bottles of Hood's Sarsaparllla.
After taking tho first bottle I could see an

UNCLE SAM GETS PEARLS
Extensive Fisheries With the Group of
Fishers Nearly All Americans Many Dark
Tales Told of Manipulations of tho Busi
ness Big Honey In It.
In tbo picturesquely miscel
laneous collection of sultans, ac
tive volcanoes, rajas, Dyah pirates
and so forth, handed over to the
United States in tbo far Paoifio as
ono result of the late Spanish war,
are the important pearl fisheries
altaobed to the group of Sulu isl
nuds pearl fisheries tbat since
Ibo decline of those of Ceylon and
tbe Persian pulf, divide with the
north coaBt of Australia tho repu
tation of boing tho most valuable
iu the world. These pearl fish
eries promise to furnish groat
opportunities for tho investment
of American capital.
Like many otbofields of enter
prise in tbat part of tho world,
the Sulu poarliDg grounds have,
for bo mo time, been controlled by
men or companies with largo
capital, of which the chief is the
great London jewelry firm of
Streutor. Thco capitalists equip
and eond out fleets of from twenty
to thiity moilornto-sized schoonors
upon aunual cruises, and employ
iu the pursuit besides numerous
Europeun officers and super
cargoes, many hundreds, if not
thousand, of nativo divers.
An rogards tbo latter, a con
troversy has raged in the western
Pacific for many years. Several
individuals whose information
was apparently founded upon tho
beet of grounds porsonal obser
vation, Hlfirmod that mauy of the
pearl fleet owuers woro nothing
but pirates 0HI10 worst typo, who,
while shielding thomselves be
hind contracts with the native
chiefs, in reality kidnaped thou
Hands of the Paoifio islanders and
compelled them to dive on tbe
hanks, whether the lattor wore
willing or not.
As tho matter so nearly affeotod
tho Ausiralian goverumont, they
tuailo such urijout representations
to tho British authorities on be
half of tho uativo divers that, at
length, a veritable martinet was
dis atched as high commissioner
to Ibe Pacific, who in turn vowed
tbntjie would bang without mer
cy auyHritisu subject convicted
of the offense before his court.
rAAIlL FISHER.S NOW NEAItLY ALL
Then tho pearl lloot owners did
a very simple thing. Tbey chose
tho territory in the Amorican uni
on whoro naturalization could be
the most quickly offeoted, and
thilhor dinpatabed thfir Diiuoinal
oiiicers to lonrn tuo science or fruit
fnnuuiL'. When they bad bocome
full iktlgful American citizens,
they smilingly returned to their
old vocations, being then subject,
of course, to tbe jurisdiction of the
American consular agnnts in thoso
latitiulos-meu .who, as tbo pearl
11 ot owners declared, wero so
touch moro amenablo to roason."
This, for the time, coiled up the
swinging rope of tho British offici
al, but tho trouble has sinco re
mained more or less on tho sim
mer, until now that tbo United
States hriB acquired ono of the
principal fisheries, it will probab
ly breath oat afresh, thus afford
ing sundry prospective interna
tional commissioners a pleasant
winter tour among tho islands of
tlio Pncilii!, before it i'h finally set
tled with justico to all concornod.
AMOUNT OP REVENUE FROM 1'EAItL
It may be information to manv
that tbo-chlef rovenuo of the poarl
uMiuig industry is aorivea not
from tho find of pearls a very
uncertain contingency, but from
tbe pearl bIioIIb. or mothor-of-
pourl, whioh brings in the market
$100 a ton and upwards. As an
illustration of this, while tho
West Australian pearl fisheries
uottud iu one yoar $100,000 from
tho shells, tho roturus from tho
find of pearls was valued at a littlo
over $150,000, or about one-third.
In this respect, while tho pearls
found iu theSulusaro of the finest
quality, the mother-of-pearl is
sometimes characterized by a
yellowish tint, whioh roudors it
loss valuable from a commercial
point of view, as being upsuitable
for many ornamental purposes,
nnd consequently makes the in
dustry more of a speculative na
ture than tbat carried ou upon tho
adjacout Australian banks.
