RICE FAMINE 680,000 NOW EAT S TEA W President's Appeal for Relief by America is Based Upon Har rowing ReportGranaries Denuded b y Ruined Crops. Washington, 1). C, March 5. Upon the theory that "nations, like men, should stand ever ready to aid each other." President Roosevelt has writ ttn a general appeal for relief to the famine sufferers in Japan and has rec ommended that contributions be sent to the American National Red Cross society, which Mill forward them to the Japanese Red Cross. The president has been stirred bv a story cf starvation that people in this land of plenty, can scarcely realize Three of the northern provinces of the valiant Island kingdom, with a population of nearly 3,000,000 people, are facing the worst famine since the terrible one of 1840. Rice is the prin cipal diet of the Japanese people and the crop in the three districts hits failed woefully. Japanese government, reports says Henry B. Miller, consul general of Yokahama, tells only part of the terri ble condition of tho people. He has sent home an estimate that "over 650, 000 people are in extreme distress, with no possibility of saving life with out aid. Thousands of people are lin ing cn roots, acorns, leaves of straw mixed with small quantities of rice and flour. What, makes the famine doubly hard to bear is that the silk LATE ECHOES OF RECENT STORMS Report Is Confirmed. That French Establishment in Oceania Devastated.

CONSUL GENERAL MILLER. crop was only half the average out put, thus bringing additional famine. The three provinces affected, show this appalling condition: In Miyagi province, with a popula tion of 8!9.279, and a 12 per cent crop In 1905, 250.000 people are starving. In Fukushlma province, population, 1.174,024. with 25 per cent crop in 1905. 300.000 are starving. In Iwate province, with a popula tion of 748.254, and a 33 per cent crop in 1905, 100,000 are starving. The value of an average crop in the three provinces totals $18,630,936. but the loss on the present crop Is es timated at $14,150,787, or $5 per per son. Extremes In temperature and an un usual excess of raina caused the fail ure of the rice crop. Every effort to save the crop and avert disaster was unavailing. The Japanese government crop bulletins tell the story as geo graphically us anything. In the case of Fugushima province the bulletins were: Crop Date. Condition. August 23 75 per cent September 25 62 per cent Octolier 5 38 per cent October 1G 32 per cent October 24 29 per cent November 10 25 per cent Famine alarms began with the bulle tin Issued on October 5. Behind these bare flugres was a propitious June In tne first hair, se vere rains In the last half and twenty- seven days of rain In August, wlt'n only one of the three kinds of rice blossoming. There was Improved weather in September, but cold nights followed and even the partial crop was marly destroyed. A Mockery of Food. In the desperate resort to devour ing straws, roots and acorns food the world over for cattle and hogs the Japanese of the future provinces are indeed undergoing a supreme or deal. Samples of the food shown to the foreign residents' relief commit tee smelted sour, and the mess was nasty and fcretn and altogether ro-4 pugnant. The Japanese government has made elaborate tests of these foods to determine how much nour ishment they contain, and to warn the people agahist poisonous lngredi ents.
