A lllile mi I lie I'flho.
The I'elho river Is the one which flow's
from near Pekln on down to the sea, and
up It all of the freight which supplies the
northern provinces of China must go. It
Is a winding, muddy stream, navigable
only for large ships about ilfty miles, or as
far as Tien Tsln. There is a bar at Its
mouth, and It Is only at high tide and
with a proper wind that you i.in get over
this. During m trip this summer we lay
for two davs outside the bar, under tho
Khadow of the Taku forts, before we could
get over, ami In coming away we had to
wait two days for the proper wind and
Hood to get outside the river. Secretary
Foster and party were on the same alilii
XVe had a cargo of bonts for Jnpin, nnd
betwixt the smell and the sex th delay
was by no means pleasant. In going up
the Pi Iho you wind your way through a
low, flat pi tin, whleli is covered with one
Mory houses of mud. These houses are
built right along the banks of the river,
and the land back of them Is divided tin
into farms und orchards. The blossoms
xvere out during tho time that I went up
the I'elho, and the brown pliln was spot
ted here and there with ast patches of
-white and pink llovvers. Half-naked clill-

4ren squatted on the banks, and there were
thousands ot people at work in the Helds,
In the early morning you could see them
going out to work from the villages They
inarched by the hundreds along the paths,
going always In single Hie. At Tien Tsln
I found an ocean ot shipping lying at the
wharves, there were boats of all kinds, and
trom all parts of China There were acres
of rafts, made of logs, which were to be
Bold as lumber. Theru were great barges
and Junks loaded with all kinds of mer
chandise, and as we neared the illy we
came Into a forest of masts, among which
swarmed tens of thousands of bluccoated.
brown-skinned men, loading and unloading
the ships to which they belonged.
There are so many cf these eoolles that
they made me think of u swurrn of ants,
and they were quite as busy as unts at
their work i:very man w nt on the trot,
and I saw them at work from early morn
ing until late at night There Is no ma
chinery used on the wharves of nny Chi
nese city. There are no derricks and no
ste-am engines Human muscle carries all
the freight, and the heaviest ot packages
are borne oif on the backs of men 1
was surprised at their strength. I saw
coolies at Tien Tsln who coull lift Uu
pounds, and some were carrying bales of
cotton on their backs. At Hankow I saw
coolies unloading Ingots of steel, which
weighed half a ton. These ingots were
brought from Ilelglum to China, In
rder that the Chinese might experiment

A hnlf do'en roolles would take hold of
one of these big pieces of Mo'l, raising It
b tncans of reipcs and poles, nnd they
would grunt nnd sing.ns they mrrleel It

nil of thn ports there nrp grertt hulks or

There nrr millions upon millions of peo
ple who gel their living ort ot the Chinese
rivers China Is snld to have more boat-i
than all tho rest nf tlm world put together,
nnd Us boat population nimbi. In, nil prob
ability, be greater than that tit all Kurop"
nnd America On the Pesirl river, Iti South
Chilli, nt the cltv of Canton, there are
all In be SC.l0 people who were
born, live and die upon the water. This
river, vhlrli you rixich from Hong Kong,
Is tilled with shipping, and as you near
Cntittui vou llnd It lllled with craftH of nil
kinds, from the small steamer to the great
Chinese Junk. There are thousands of
saiurrins, or Ilttl" Chinese gondolas, with
gleat bhiek and white eyes pilntcd on iMeh
side of their prow There are cargo boats,
whi h hue bigger eyes, and there are vnst
ships, the eye uf which nrp as large
around as a dinner plate. The Chines pnlnt
eyes un nil their boats, and n sailor would
as nwn think of trying to travel through
it rlty blindfolded as of illlng on n boat
which had not a p.tlr of eyes painted on
the- front of It. I found whole families
living on thee bouts, nnd I paw some not
more than twenty feet In length, which
iiintnlned three generations of Chinese,
I remember on" woman who rowed me to
shore nt Hong Kong She was working
aw ly with a biby of nbout 2 years old
tied on her back I heard It eiiiill In the
rear of the boat, and, looking back, I saw
it raw, red baby frantically waving Its
rosy arms and crying out Its protests
through Its toothless gums. This woman
had no other homo than her boat, and on
such Is) its children are- born, grow up and
die. Marriages take place upon them, and
oil of the failures of household life arc to
be seen In connection with them.
On some of the larger boats nt Can
ton the children fairly awnrm, and little
ones of 2 nnd .1 years plav about their
decks. I saw n number of boys on those
boats who nan little routui oarreis or arums
about u foot long nnd six Inches in dlnin
iter tied to their bicks. I was told thee
were life preservers, and that If the child
fell overboard ho could lloat till his mother
or father came to his rescue I was sur
mised to see that many of the girls of the
boats had no such protection, nnd tijion ask
ing why, I was told that It was considered
by some of the people a piece of good
fortune to loe a girl as they would In this
way save the expense ot rnlslng her. I
doubt, this, however, It Is n fact, though,
that poor girls are of little account In
China. This is especiallv so among the
boat population 1 llted one place Just
oil the river at Slinngliai. win re mere were
perhaps V') Chinese babies In a foundling
asylum. One of the people In charge told
me that you could buy girl babies all the
way from a cut to n elollar apiece, and
tint they took babies from mothers upon
the payment ot 20 cents apiece bv the
mothers Clrls are sometimes bought this
w.iv and rnied for Improper purposes
Women are sold regularly by their parents
for wives and concublms, nnd I am told
that a full grown maiden of fair beauty
was worth from .' upwind. There are
hundreds ot boats at Canton upon which
dinners nnd banquets are given, nnd which
hnvo numbers of girls lonnected with them
who are kept for the amusement of the
guests. There are boats which arc owned
by beggars, and I was told bv one of our
consuls that babies weie sometimes bought
nnd their ees put out in older that they
might be, raised us blind beggars.

IJaeh of the high olllclals who live along
the Chinese rivers has .lis own boat. This
Is decorated with Hags, and the bigger the
man the more Hags and bunting. 1.1 Hung
Clung has a steam launch When his wife
died, not long ago, a gorgeous funeral
barge was made for her. Ibis was deco
rated with white, and it looked gorgeous
to American eves The Chinese have boats
which are worked by the feet, and which
are sh ipeil Just like a slipper. These are
used as dispatch bolts They are not
much bigger than the ordinary canoe, and
they can be made to io erv fast At
Canton 1 was shown boats which had pad
dle wheels at the sides, and which were
worked by man power Tne men turned
the wheels In-dde the boat, which connect
ed with the piddle wheels outside, and a
half a dozen men weie doing the work of
an ordinary gas engine. I could 1111 this

I saw boats at Hankow which had come
down almost from the harbors of Thibet
They were made so that tliex could Jump
the rapids and work their way through
(he great gorges of Ichang These gorges
are 1'TO miles above Hankow, and nearly a

hour It rises and falls ten and twelve
feel In a single night, and It bolls and
seethes as it goes through Here Is an
eddy, there a whirlpool and there against
the rocks It dashes in a spray almost like
that of the sea Tin rocks are tilled with
all kinds of ferns, tin y are of gianlte, and
along the edges blue-gowned, pig-tailed
workmen are iiunriylng gleat blocks of
granite, whleh are shipped down the
latigt-.. Klang. There are mlKs of these
gorges, and the scenery about them Is the
most beautiful in China 'Ihe bolts are
tracked thiuugh the gorges, and there Is
quite a population along them whose main
support Is from such work.
Hull, and liiinse Hints.
The queerest boats T saw during mv ttlp
on the Pearl liver were those devoted to
the raising of gees.- and durks The Chi
nese are the best fowl ralsois of the world
'I ley raise ducks by nrtlllolal Incubation,
and they know Just how to fe. d and cue
for them l'or live days after they liave
the shell they are not alloweel to hear any
noise, and their food i onslsts of lite water.
After this they are given boiled rl e Coi
the llrst two wioks they aie kept In a
coop and then thev aii'put on the bonts
and made to shift for themselves. The
boats are iry clumsy and they are some
what like rafts une bo it will seiinetliiit s
hold more than a thousand ducks, which
are In i barge of one or two keepeis. The
duck fanner rows or stalls the boat to the
low land along the banks of the river eir
cri eks, nml he drives the ducks olt from
time to time to feast on the worms and
snails which are here to be found He has
the ducks so trained that he can call them
back to the boat at will, ami he hurries
thira up bv giving the last duck a blow
with a stick. After the ducks are giovvn
he carries them from one market to anoth
er on his bo it. There are fowl markets In
all of the titles and the goo-e market of
Canton is lllled with thousands of birds ev
en' day row Is are sold IhuIi dead and
alive. The ducks antl goose an- dried and
pie-ssctl and they are shipped In large quan
tities nil over China Taxes will now be
collected on nil such articles of food and
there will be nothing which passes through
the rivers which will not have to piy a
share to this fund demanded by Japan,
One of the chief resources of the Chinese
government Is through the sale of salt, and
the taxes on salt will now be greatly In
creased, The silt trade In China Is a gov
ernment monopoly, and no one can sell It
without a license from the salt commis
sioner There are salt boats and salt Junks
on all the rivers. The salt is curled in
Junks through the linger strenms, mid Is
tiken to the vlllngcs through the canals In
smaller boats The country Is divided into
cltcults and the salt In each circuit Is sup
losed to be produced there. It is made
from sea water around the coast and from
brine In the interior Just above the mouth
of the Pelho river I passed vast silt vvoiks
The ground looked much like the marshes
near New York and the salt was produced
by evaporation There were windmills for
pumping the brine ftom tho sea and there
were great mountains ot salt which had
been piled up ready for shipment The
government icqulres that all salt shall be
sold at Hxed rates to governme-nt agents.
It Is distributed thiough salt meichauts
und over these theru Is u spe-elal salt com
missioner for each district The salt com
missioners pay for their places and a good
oillce of this kind Is worth ftom Jiu.uui to
Sl.'.WiO The salt, after having been landed
In a district, Is kept In n hondtd warehouse
ami the government llxes the prices. It
makes a juoflt on every sale until the salt
readies the hands of the retail dealer. It
has the right to increase the prices and
there will iinduubtttlly be a rise in this re
spect ns soui) as Urn vvai Is oyer
During late years the government Income
from salt has been less than JlO.OOO.Om) a
year, but I was told that time had been a
great deal nt stealing on the p.ait of the
cominl-isluneis, and that It ought to l)iln
In fully twice as much ns it does. If the
taxis should be collected by foielgners In.
stead of by Chinese. .'Is Is possible In case
of a foreign loan, the salt levenue will be
doubled. At present the marine customs
are cullected by foreigners under an Hn
gllsh Inspector general, Sir Ilobcrt Hart.
All of the ofllclili get high salaries, but
since they took charge of the customs they
have tripled the receipts from them to the
government. 'Ihe same would be the result
If they had charge of the other taxes of
me country inti government would get
all the money Instead of one-half of it
going as stealings to the Chinese olllclals
who collected It. If China, In fact, was
unCer the administration of a foreign gov

At present China does everything In the
most ixpenslve way. Traveling costs ten

no rallroids through the thickly settled
parts of tho country, nnd you have to take
