THE LAND OF RUBBER
IMMENSE WEALTH IN THE FORESTS
. OF MADAGASCAR.
The Concession to Ex-Consul Waller May
Mtan Much to Americana Beaonreea of
the Island Queer C us turns of ths Na
tives. The discovery of a new rubber tree
in Madagascar a year or so ago haa
proved, a big bonanza for the natives
anal worked a commercial revolution in
the island. Small traders whose most
avaricious dreams formerly did not ex
tend beyond the possession of a few
hundred piasters as the result of 1 5 or
20 years of hard work have suddenly
achieved comparative riches, and the
price of raw rubber has been quintupled
by the keen competition of purchasers.
If the reported concession to John L.
"Waller, ex-United States consul at Ta
matave, be confirmed, it is likely to
make a great change in our trade rela
tions with the Malagasian kingdom and
may lead to some interesting diplomatic
complications with France.
The French have for several years ex
ercised a sort of protectorate over the
country and are very jealous of other
foreigners gaining any influence in its
concerns. This jealousy is particularly
marked in the case of Americans, for our
consul is the only foreign representative
who takes his exequatur directly from
the queen's government, thus acloiowl-
RAKAVALONl, QUEEN OF BtADAGASCAR.
edging her as the ruler of the island.
The other consuls take their exequaturs
from the French representatives, though
the island does not belong to France,
and the French are quite powerless in
its domestic affairs. Thuy have consid
erable influence, however, in determin
ing the foreign policy of the country
and maintain there a resident general
with a military suit, though the Mada
gascar government refuses to recognize
their right to do so.
Madagascar is now nominally ruled
by the native queen, Ranavalona III, a
woman of 83 years, who succeeded to
the throne in 1883 and the same year
married her prime minister. The gov
ernment is an absolute monarchy, in
which the prime minister usually man
ages the sovereign and makes puppets of
his subordinate ministers.
The prime minister, who rejoices in
the simple and euphonious name of
Rainilaiarivony, is not of royal blood.
He is a shrewd old fellow, more than
60 years of age and very much alive.
He rose to power by assassinating his
predecessor during the reign of the pre
It has always been the rule that the
prime minister should bo the husband
of the queen. The former queen was
married to the predecessor of the present
Another curious custom of the island
is the compulsory duty imposed by the
queen on all the foreign members of her
court to render service once a month at
her table. All these gentlemen carry rice
and chicken to her majesty. They have
the further pleasure of crawling on
their knees before her once a month in
the throneroom. On this occasion the
queen sits on a throne and wears a solid
gold crown which weighs 4 pounds.
Few people realize the vast area of
Madagascar. It is the largest island in
the world, counting Australia among
the continents. Its greatest length is 400
miles, with an average width of 250
miles, and the population is variously
estimated at from 1,000,000 to 1,250,
000. The general name of the inhabit
ants is Malagasy, but they are divided
into at least 45 tribes. It is a popular
idea that the Malagasy are negroes. As
a matter of fact, they are Malays.
There are "wide differences between
the tribes.. The most numerous are the
Sakalavas, whtf constitute about a third
of the population and -a"re the most war
like and savage of any of the island peo
ples. They are averse to civilization.
They are not cannibals, but they are
naturally lazy and stupid. They have a
fine physique and average over 6 feet in
height, but they are by far the darkest
aborigines from much mixing with the
The Hovas, the second largest tribe
on the island, comprise less than a
fourth of the whole population. They
are much smaller than the Sakalavas,
averaging only a little above 5 feet.
They have straight, regular features and
take very kindly to civilization. They
are intelligent and quick to learn and
have preserved the strong feeling of
caste that exists among the natives of
India. The Hovas are the ruling tribe,
all the kings and queens of Madagascar
having been Hovas. The Hovas do not
mix largely with the other tribes, and
their dark hair is straight, long, fine
and abundant, while that of the Saka
lavas is kinky, though it cannot be
The concession granted to Mr. Waller
is said to cover 225 square miles of the
southern part of the island and to in
clude the right to cut other valuable
timber as well as the rubber tree. Mr.
Waller, it will be remembered, was a
prominent colored Republican of Kansas
City and was appointed consul at Tama
tave, the principal port of Madagascar,
by President Harrison.

A Cute Justice.
It was the law of the village that all show
men, itinerants and organ grinders must
get a license before doing business there.
One day a fat policeman, who had been on
the force about six months without doing
anything, concluded it was time he arrested
somebody. Soon afterward along came an
Italian with a performing bear.
"Hev yez got yer license?" asked the po
liceman. "No," said the exhibitor of the bear.
"Then yer my priz'ners," said the police
man, and he triumphantly marched off
with them to the village station house, he
leading the Italian and the Italian leading
Arraigned before the police justice, the
Italian pleaded guilty, and the judge offi
ciously gave him a most severe and scorch
ing lecture on the enormity of his offense,
ending by fining him $10, the full extent of
the law. :
The culprit had a lot of small change in
his pocket, but being mostly pennies and
nickels it only counted up to $7.50. For a
few moments the judge was in a quandary.
He didn't want to send the fellow to jail
nor yet lose the $10. Presently a bright idea
struck him a happy solution of the prob
lem and he said:
"Here, officer, take this fellow but to.the
market place and let him perform with his
bear until he makes up the balance, and
when he gets it drive him out of town."

When Lawrence Barrett's daughter was
married, Stuart Robson sent a check for
$5,000 to the bridegroom. Miss Felicia Rob

the gift. '
"Felicia," said her father upon her return,
"did you give him the check?"
"Ifes, father," answered the dutiful
daughter. " ,
"What did he say?" asked Robson.
"He didn't say anything," replied Miss
Felicia, "but he shed tears."
"How long did he cry?"
"Why, father, I didn't time him. I should
say, however, that he wept fully a minute."
"Fully a minute!" roared Robson. "Why,
I cried an hour after I'd signed it!" Chica

all been tried before." He was seriously
disappointed with a certain book written
by one of his friends. This friend heard
