Changps Thpy Have Made On
an Island In tlie Bay of
The evolncion of a commnn
iry of 10000 persons of a most
degraded type from a state of
squalor and vice to that of
prosperity and wide intelligence
has set all Enrope talking. The
scene of this marvelons .pro
gress is the Andaman Islands
in the Bay of Bengal England's
greatest penal settlement for
It has taken just forty years
to bring aoout the present state
of affairs to make over as it
were these criminals from foes
of law to admirable citizens.
Whpn the first convicts landed
on the island 'they fonnd a
primeval swamp and forest. In
fact the climate was" so deadlj'
that sixtj' years ago when a
British foice under Lord Corn
wallis tried to establish a set
tlement there utter failure re-
sulted. The first convict settlement
was made in 1S57 5S not long
after the Indian mutiny and it
seemed at that lime as if the
sentences of the convicts would
be short indeed even though
they were for life. All the con
ditions were such as made
human existence brief and it
seemed a well nigh impossible
task to alter them.
Perseverance however will
accomplish much and.Lhe flour
ishing state of affairs on the
island at present shows wha'l
hard worK and plenty of it
when engineered by capable
men will do.
The convicts were told when
thej' landed that while th3r
never could leave the island
after ten years of good behav
ior they would no longer be
forced to lead the life of prison
ers but could work for them
selves and the government
would help them. This pioved
to be the needed impetus and
the result is seen to day in a
fertile island settlement cover
ing many square miles of gar-
dens and consisting of more
than fifty villages of reformed
criminals. All this beside the
convict stations 'and the exten
sive government buildings.
Originally the islands were
covered with magnificent trees
from many of which the rarest
orchids hung in rich profusion.
These irees formed the very
best timber and lumber culture
was proved one of the most pro-
fitable industries to which the
island-re devoted therasplves.
While the progress of the in-
habitants of the islands has
been very great since the first
decade of settlement it is only
at a recent date-that the maiked
evidences of prosperity hare
created such widespread won

landers and the government

the islands an important factor
in the commercial workL
A few weeks ago sawmills of
the most improved and expen-
sive sort were established on
Chatham Island one of the
chief divisions of the group.
Thpse are driven by engines
the boilers of which are filled
with water that is first drawn
through a tunnel which was
eighty feet out to sea and then
is poured into a surface conden
Six hundred convicts are
employed in the task of getting
out timber. A sufficient amount
is procured by their labors tn
supply all the lumber and
timber that the island needs
and leaves a great qnatititj' foi
export to. India and Europe.
So fine is the quality of this
product of the forest that even
the poorest is sold at a far
highr figuie than lumber that
in most countries would be
considered of the first grade.
In fact the total value of the
lumber product in the Anda
man Islands runs into millions.)
All sorts of tropical fruits
abound. There does not seem
to be anything that will noi
grow there that is found in the
tropics Not only do tropical
products flourish almost be
yond belief but such clever
farmers horticulturists and ar
boriculturists have these crim-
inals and descendants of cri-
minals become that they I a v
coaxedjthe products of colder
climes to flourish almost as il
in their native land.
While many experiments
have been made by the various
governments of Europe to es
tabiiah penal settlements wheie
convicts would in tiiae become
good citizens there never has
been an instancenot even in ihe
Australian Archipelago of so
successful a resnlt. The first
settlements in Australia of
criminals were by no ine;ns as
extensive as those of the An
daman Islands. When it is
consideted that the thousands
of convicts who formed the
pioneers of the present corn
mnnity were controlled by a
single British regiment of sol
diers the peaceful and law-
abiding result seems all the

rived from New Orleans -last
night in his private car which
was hitched to the west bound

north Texas at io.20.
Mr. Green was accompanied
by Colonel A. Faulkner but
that gentleman when seen to-
day said if Mr. Green while

concealed from his 'traveling-
companions. A FAVORABLE REPORT.

The committee on commerce
of the senate today authorized
Serator Gorman to report fa-
vorably the resolution intro
duced by Senator Mills in the
senate to instruct an examina-
tion into the harbor wofks at
Aransas Pass looking to their
purchase by the government.
The commission to make the
examination will as usual in
such cases be composed of
army engineers. It seems that"
the harbor improvements and
the franchises are owned by
persons in Texas and in Bal-
timore as gentlemen frQm the
j latter place have been here
