WASHINGTON. D. C, Nov. 16.
Absinthe, that much adver
tised dope drink, recently ex
cluded from importation by special
treasury order, is by n means the
only article forbidden -o be brought
into this country. Investigation dis
closed the fact that there are a good
many other things on the prohibited
list, to which was added, by special
act of congress, July 31 last, the prize
fight moving picture film.
The shutting out of opium prepared.
for smoking has brought into exist
ence a new and highly objectionable
industry; i. e., the manufacture of an
extract of the drug, which serves as
a very satisfactory substitute. It is
made by rubbing crude opium in a
mortar with water, shaking the mix
ture at intervals, filtering it until the
fluid is nearly colorless, and concen
trating it by bolting. The stuff is thus
reduced to a gummy consistency, and
is utilizable for smoking.
Crude opium is still admitted at our
ports, so that there is no lack of the
raw material. But if it were excluded
by law plenty of it would be smug
gled to supply the demand. Satis
ticians in moral economics, say that
there are over 90,000 habitual opium
smokers among the white people of
this country (not to reckon the Chi
nese), every big city having its opium
haunts and habitues. They are bound
to have tbe drug, and the extract at a
pinch will satury their requirements,
especially as it can be purchased read
ily enough at many drug stores.
Xo OdIhui LiccHHea IosHed.
The internal revenue bureau is al
lowed by law to issue licenses for the
manufacture of smoking opium in the
United States. Up to the present time
it has never granted such a license to
anybody, however. On the contrary
successful efforts have been made to
put out of business the "cookeries"
which, formerly numerous in San
Francisco and other Pacific coast cit
ies. sought refuge and security later
ob. in out of the way places for ex
ample, along the Sacramento and San
Joaquin rivers, whence the opium was
shipped to ban Francisco as butter ana
eggs.
The business of makine opium ex
tract is now conducted on a consid
erable scale in Philadelphia, Balti
more. an7 other cities in the east. Ut
most secrecy is maintained by produc
ers of the article, and up to tne preS'
ent time the government authorities
have not made much headway in their
efforts to put a stop to the business.
Whereas the crude opium contains
only about 9 percent of morphine.
there is in the extract 30 percent, so

ter that makes a good deal of differ
ence to the customs receipts, and
which incidentally protects the Ameri
can fowl against cheap foreign com
petition. Ducks likewise are not
birds under the rules of the treasury
department, and importers of their
eggs must pay 5 cents a dozen for the
privilege of bringing them in.
Regulations of this kind are some
what complicated. Thus geese are
"poultry" and dutiable as such, where
as swans are free as "water fowL"
The little chicks and ducklings, killed
when two weeks old, stuffed with
cotton, wired to keep them in shape,
and imported from Japan by millions
for the eastern market, were formerly
"toys," and paid 35 percent ad valorem
Now. however, they are "stuffed
birds, not for millinery UBe." and come
in free. Live frogs are "fowls" under
the customs rules, and pay cents a
pound. Progs' legs are "dressed poul
try." and are assessed at 5 cents a
pound. This is a case of what is
called classification "by similitude."
Frogs' legs are fried like chicken and
taste like chicken; therefore they are
chicken in the eye of the treasury.
Five Birds the Limit.
Five birds (or less number) are
"baggage," and as such may be
brought into the country without
special permit But it is necessary to
obtain a permit from the department
of agriculture for tbe importation of
live feathered creatures in larger num
bers, excepting only canaries and par
rots, which are admitted without re
striction. During the last year there
were brought into the United States,
under permit. 345,210 canaries, 13.398
pheasants, 36,507 Kuropean patridges.
5,994 miscellaneous game birds, and
49,837 miscellaneous nongame birds.
In addition, there were 24.318 birds requiring-no
permits, these being mainly
parrots.
Of the pheasants. 12,32$ were Eng
lish "ringnecks." imported for stock
ing game preserves. The other pheas
ants, including two of the rare Argus
species from Java, were for avaries
chiefly. Which remark applies also
to five "greater" birds of paradise
the first living individuals of this spe
cies ever brought to America. With
in the last few years it has become
the fashion of wealthy people to main
tain aviaries filled with rare and beau
tiful birds gathered from various parts
of the world: and the estates of our
multimillionaires are being stocked
with fancv water fowl from other
lands, such as the Mandarin duck,
which lend attractive ornament and
life te smmH lakes td artificial ponds.
Cigars in Quantities less than 3000
are not allowed to be imported. Why
this is nobody knows The treasury
itself is unable to explain it, but such
Is the fact in law. It goes back to
the days of the civil war. and the pre
sumption Is that the legal enactment
on this point was obtained by cigar
dealers along the border who were
anxious to exclude retail competition
from Canadian sources.
AbsiBtae lx Shut Out.
Absinthe , was shut out under the
law which forbids tbe importation of
foods and drinks injurious to health.
But it is safe to predict that the de
mand will be plentifully supplied by a
domestic product, probably inferior.
A crude but salable absinthe liquor is
made from the essential oil of worm
wood. In the proper manufacture of
the stuff, however, the leaves and
the twigs of the absinthe plant are
steeped in water together with hys
sop, calamus, cirronelle, anise, fennel,
and other vegetable ingredients. The
decoction thus obtained is then dis
tilled and the product treated with al
cohol, sugar, and coloring matters.
Lottery tickets, of curse, are shut
out because this sort ot gambling is
destructive of good morals. Besides,
such enterprises find the poor their
chief prey. Nevertheless, it is beyond
question that a great many tickets in
Mexican, Central American, and other
foreign lotteries do find their way to
this country through the mails or
otherwise. In Latin lands, whether in
the new world or the old, the lottery
evil always flourishes, and reaches out
as far as it can to augment its ill
got profits.
Articles produced in whole or part
by convict labor are excluded. In
most of the states of the Union this
kind of labor Is allowed to compete
freely with the toil of the honest
workingman, but Our government re
fuses to permit foreign jailbirds to
enjoy the same advantage.
The requirements of permits for im
porting birds, already mentioned. Is
designed to exclude certain undesir
able feathered immigrants, such as the
Kuropean staling, which is a first
class nuisance. There is in New Zea
land a species of parrot which we
should not welcome, called the
"weka." It attacks sheep, devouring
their kidneys. Likewise, the govern
ment is on its guard against certain
objectionable mammals, such as the
Malta goat. This goat is a wonderful
milk giver and would be heartUy wel
comed, but unfortunately it is very
liable to be infected with Malta fever,
a disease dangerous to human beings.
Fear the Mongoose.
Tbe mammal whose exclusion is
most anxiously desired Is the much
advertised mongoose, native to South
ern Asia, which looks somewhat like
a ferret, though bigger. Once intro
duced into this country, it might easi
ly do $50,000,000 worth of damage an
nually. It is a wholesale destroyer of
chickens, a killer of lambs and pig
lings, and a deadly enemy to aU kinds
of game birds that nest on or near the
ground In Jamaica and in Hawaii,
whither it was carried for the purpose
of destroying the rats that infested
the cane fields, this abominable little
beast has already done incalculable
damage.
Another possible immigrant 4bat is
deemed very undesirable is tbe so
called "flJ mg fox" a giant bat. native
to the tropics of the old world. Our
bats need on insects, but the flying fux
is a fruit eater The largest species
has a wing spread of five feet. Such
bats are sometimes found in flocks
numbering thousands They have reg
ular "camps" in the midst of morasses,
or in other inaccessible places, from
which the issue forth at nighc to
make raids upon fruit orchards.
A special order was recently pro
mulgated forbidding the importation
of venomous snakes into the Hawaiian
Islands. The reason for this is some
what out of tbe ordinary. It is feared
that if poisoning serpents were

A decision recently made by the
treasury is that a rail of steel is not
necessarily a steel rail at all. It was
discovered that certain importers were
bringing into this country ,the finest
kind of high speed steel made up into
the form of rails, in order to reduce
the duty to a low figure. It was, in

out from importation.
M(i Cannes Ban On Game Bggs.
One of the oddest of the articles
shut out, if one considers tbe reason
why, is the eggs of game birds. The
regulation governing such eggs had
its origin in an amazing myth, which
was to the effect that millions of eggs 1
of wild ducks, geese swans, and other 1
wild fowl were annually gathered in j
Alaska and the British possessions 1
and shipped to points in the east
where they were manufactured into
egg elbumen for us by bakers and
confectioners. In photography, and for 1
other purposes- i
It was alleged that these eggs, col
lected, from the breeding grounds of
the birds In the Yukon valley and else- ;
where, were forwarded over the Ca-
nadian Pacific road in enormous quan- '
titles, single shipments sometimes !
amounting to 1000, or even 1800.
barrels. They were mainly wild duck
and wild goose eggs, and .the bulk of
them were from Alaska, but consid
erable quantities (it was declared)
came from British Columbia. Immense
numbers, being partly hatched, were
incidentally destroyed. The ducks in
question were canvasbacks, teal, etc
and it was charged that this industrr
had done more to diminish the for
mer multitudes of wild fowl in Ore
gon. Washington. Idaho, Montana, and
California than all the guns and dogs
of sportsmen in that vast region.
The simple fact is that no such in
dustry existed. Not a single shipment
of eggs of ducks or other wild fowl
was ever forwarded over the Canadian
Pacific road. The whole story was an
invention from beginning to end. But
it was widely believed, and, to prevent
the threatened extermination of feath
ered game by such means tbe tariff
act of 1894 forbade the importation
of the eggs of game birds into the
United States. This regulation still
remains in force, and for a while did
much harm, considerable quantities of
such eggs, fetched from abroad for
purposes of propagation, being
dumped into New York harbor. In
1902, however, an amendment was
adopted permitting eggs to come in
"for propagation purposes only"
which is where the matter stands at
present.
Too Cheap For American Hens.
One or two further facts will make
the absurdity of the yarn more mani
fest. Large quantities of egg albumen
are imported into this country from
Russia. Germany, and France, where
in summer, when hens' eggs are cheap,
millions of them are broken, and the
whites, with salt added to make them
keep, are dried in the form of what
is known as "albumen cake" To
make one pound of the latter (worth
50 cents) requires IV eggs the price
being equivalent, therefore, to 4 cents
a dozen. This Is a figure at which the
American hen cannot compete, and
hence It comes about that no egg albu
men worth mentioning is manufac
tured in the United States But even
if ir were, how could wild duck ana
goose eggs be collected in Alaska and 1
fetched over thousands 01 nines ot
railroad at a price low enough to en
ter into competition with the output
of the domestic chicken'
Reference to this matter brings to
' mind the question that came up for de
cision bv the treasury not very lonff
ago as to whether the hen is a hen or
a bird, considered from a tariff stand
point. Much advertisement was given
to the problem in the newspapers, but
nobody seemB to have taken note of
what the final judgment was when it'
was made So knot was the point
that it had to be referred to the sec
retary of the treasury, who declared
that the ben was not a bird. And
this is where she stands at present
The point is of more importance than
might be imagined If the hen were a
bird, her eggs (of which many mil
