WASHINGTON, Sept. 21. The Pres

tered Into with the government of
France on August 22 last, extending an
Important trade advantage to tho Isl
and ot Puerto HIco by the admission of
tho coffee produced In that Island to
tho French markets at the minimum
This was accomplished by a special
agreement made between Acting Sec
retary Adee, for the united States, and
M, de Margerle, Charge for the Gov
ernment of France here. This agree
ment In turn amends the commercial
arrangement of date May 28, 1898,
which was the first drawn under the
terms of the reciprocity section ot the
That arrangement applied only to
Franco and to the United States pro
per, and the amendment Just entered
into extends It on the one side to Al
geria, and on the other to the Island
ot Puerto Rico, as to the general feat
ures of the tariff schedules affected,
while as to Puerto Rlcan coffee It Is
provided that It shall enjoy the mini
mum French tariff rate until February
23, 1903, by which date It is expected a
turther extension can be arranged.

AND THEIR HABITS
Rather more than twenty years ago
there was published In the Hawaiian
Annual a paper on the birds of these
Islands from the pen of S. B. Dole, the
present governor. In the last Annual
an article appeared written by II. W.
Henshaw of llllo, and this has now
been completed und published separ
ately as a book of nearly 150 pnges.
A comparison of the two works will at
once show the great Increase In our
knowledge of the Island birds that has
been gained, since 1879. Though mod
estly designated as a 'list' the new
work Is a complete, popular ,and at the
same time scientific, account of all the
birds at present known to inhabit these
Islands. It consists almost entirely of
Interesting readable matter, the ac
tual descriptions of the various species,
although quite sufllclent for their Iden
tification, being usually limited to seven
or eight lines or even less. Mr. Hen
shaw's work Is divided into two parts.
The first deals with questions of gen
eral interest to the prnithologlst. such
as the nature of the forests, the de
struction that has taken and Is taking
place In these, the origin of the native
birds, the causes of their decrease, an
account of the work done by various
collectors and the subjects.
The second part contains the brief
technical descriptions referred to and
likewise notes on the habits, songs, &c,
of the various species. Many of these
notes are the result of the author's
field observations and contain much of
Interest. Thus of the "Omao" he says:
"It Is a common habit for It to alight
on a limb lengthwise, a custom which
with Its erect attitude while perching
strongly indicates thrust nllmitles."
To some species Mr. Henshaw has
unquestionably paid more attention
than any other observer, to the "Ele
palo" of Hawaii and the Io for exam
ple. A few lines taken from the ac
count of the former are a fair sample
of the author's work: "The curiosity
of the Elepalo Is Insatiable and a pair
or two are always on hand to inspect
an intruder and learn his business. It
will follow and catch an Insect on the
wind, which It has chanced to dislodge
from some hiding place, but It never
sits and watches for flying insects as
do the American llycatchers. In fact
by far the greater part of Its Insect
food is gleaned from the branches ot
trees and shrubs, and from among the
lichens and tangled ferns. Its motions
generally and its hunting habits are
those of a wren rather than those of
'a flycatcher. Indeed its resemblance to
J the wren Is remarkable, especially
when it droops its wings by Its sides
uiiu vulu jih tail uici ikn unvn, jui;i.
Is its frequent habit."
It Is curious that the use of the dis
torted mandible of the Akepa should
have escaped the notice of the writer,
since It Is obvious when the live bird
is examined with field glasses or even
sometimes with the naked eye, or from
an examination of the food of the bird.
The economic value ot some of the
birds is alluded to and the need of
legislation for their protection. As a
matter of fact no forest bird should be
killed under any pretext from the first
ot March till the middle of October, for
not even for scientific purposes is It
necessary to do so. It Is a most un
fortunate fact too that of the birds of
the open country the golden plover
both for food and sport surpasses all
others, for it is of all the most helpful
to the agriculturist, and Its habit of
selecting the most injurious Insects,
and Its presence In the Islands when
these are most nctlve might well afford
it more protection.
At the end of the list the rice-bird,
mynah and other introduced species
are dealt with. For the camper out in
the woods who wishes to know some
thing of the birds around him, the
present work is the very thing, while
it Is at the same time none the less
Interesting to the advanced student ot
ornithology. It should be In the pos
session of every one who takes any In
terest In this subject.

BALLASTING OF THE WAIKIKI
EXTENSION OF THE RAPID
TRANSIT COMPLETED TONIGHT.
Work was In progress all last night
on the Rapid Transit Company's lino
of track through tho McCully tract and
the banana plantation between King
street and the Wnlklkl road at Kalla
road. Incandescent lights were rigged
up on the trolley wire, and plenty of
light was thus afforded.
Rush work Is being done on the line
this extension and it is oxpected it will
be ready for car service by Thursday.
The ballasting is expected to be com
pleted today and tonight. There will
then ibe some Avork straightening up of
the trolley wire, and then the line will
be ready for service.
The track for this distance Is a per
fectly straight piece of track, and It
crosses no streets It may be expected
that fqst time can bo made on it. The
ballasting Is now being done and It Is
claimed that such good work Is being
done In the ballasting as to make It
perfectly safe to run at a very high rate
In ballasting, a very ingenious device
has been resorted to. The track runs
through old rice fields and bannnn
patches. It would be an Impossibility
to haul the ballasting to where it Is
needed In wagons or carts. In this
exigency the platform on top like a'
Hat car. Two hatches are loft In this
platform. The car is then loaded with
ballast and sent as a trailer to a trolley
car to any point where ballasting Is
going an. The ballasting Is then
thrown down through the hatches In
the ballast car right 'between the rails
and ties. In this way tho entire track
Is being ballasted.
When this line Is completed and the
car service on It has begun, the King
3treet cars will run from Kalihl out
King to McCully street, then over this
straight piece of track to Waiklkl road.
The other main line system of the road
will run its cars from AVyllle street
down Llliha to King, thence along
King. Hotel, Alapal, Kinau, Pensacoln,
Wilder avenue Alexander, Betetnnia
and McCully street stopping nt King
street. Passengers by this line desir
ing to go on toward Wnlklkl will be
transferred at this point to the King I
street cars. j
The ballast material for Iho line is
brought by wagons and carts from
Mollllll quarry, at the rate of a hundred
or more cubic yards a day.
AFTER EXPERIMENTS WITH THE
EXTRACT DR. SHOREY COMES
TO FOREGOING CONCLUSION.
Examinations of the tua tun by Dr.
Shorey, food commissioner have re
sulted In the discovery of a '1 sadly poi
son In the seed of the plant, and this
is thought to be the lngrelient that
produces the painful effects attributed
to the extract by those who clnim it H
a cure. Three cats on which experi
ments were made by Dr. Shorey have
Joined the silent majority, turning up
their toes in short order after being
given only a few drops of the oil of
the tun tua seed.
The tua tua extract, without the s-ed
produces no effect at nil, und I Is
thought by Dr. Shorey that In the cases
in which the supposed medicine proved
an active drug seeds were mixed with
the rest of the plant, nnd the extract
contained some of the poison, not
enough to produce a serious effect, but
suiucient to cause a disturbance of the
Dr. Shorey has a smnll quantity of
the oil In his laboratory and some of
the extract as well. "I have taken at
one time enough of the tua tua extract"
said Dr. Shorey, "to constitute two or
three ordinary doses, and no effect has
been shown. The oil is a poison some
what similar to croton oil and ns It was
fatal to the cats, I don't propose to
take any myself. I believe that in all
the cases in which the so-called tua tua
remedy produced any effect at all, seed
was mixed with the rest of the plant
In making the extract and some of this
oil, which Is not a strong enough poison
to be futal In very small quantities, nnd
may possibly have Its medicinal uses as
croton oil, was In the extract. This ac
counts for the contradictory reports
about the 'cure.' Some of those who
take It remnin quite unaffected, and
increase the doses beyond all proportion
without llnding that It effects their sys
tems at all. Others Und It a strong
purgative, and suffer severe pains from
Dr. Shorey's experiments have con
firmed the opinions of the members of
the Bourd of Health who thought that
Tua Tua was useless as a remedy, and
there appears to be little chance that
anything will come of using It at Mo
lokal, as reports continue to be dis
couraging, and patients are giving up
