HONG KONG'S DOPE FARMER
Big Dinner Which Marked His Retirement
ROYAL BOSS OF MONGOLIAN PIPERS
A Position That I.nsU but One Yrnr

Curlona Prnturrn nt the
In tho colony of Hong Kong there Is a
Chinaman who, white his brief reign lasts,
Is spoken of by tho quarter of a mllllou
of his fellow countrymen on the Island with
bated breath. To theso Celestials, sub
jects of Queen Victoria, tho emperor of
China la not nearly so great a roan as tho
"opium farmer," and tho queen herself,
compared with "his mightiness of tho
drug," Is In their eyes only a far-away
sovereign, not half so Imposing.
In order to regulate to soma extent tha
Importation ot opium Into Ilq'ng Kong and
to simplify tho collection of duties, ro
tates tho Chicago Times-Herald, tho UrltlBh
government several years ago decided to
placo tho wholo business In tho hands ot
ono man. Realizing, however, tho tre
mendous nnd arbitrary power that could
bo wielded bv n slnglo Individual In such
a position, It was also decided that tho
ofllco should only bo held ono year, and
that no person should bo allowed to kocp
it for moro than a single term. So It was
announced'' that the government was pre
pared to accept bids for tho privilege.
Slnco that time' tho selection of an
"opium farmer," as ho is called, has becoron
an annual event. Tho highest bid gen
erally ranges from 600,000 to S00,0i0 taels,
according to tha prospects of the poppy
crop for tho year nnd the condltlou of tho
market.. Tho successful applicant Is duly
gazetted In his position and ho In given
