OPIUM TRADE SUICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 24 December 1914

OPIUM TRADE SUICIDE. The Indian Government determined in 1894-05 that, the urea of cultiva tion of opium .should 1k» fixed as far as possible to produce 54,000 chests per annum. This is .a somewhat i higher standard than • that of the seven preceding yenrs, The net opium revenue has fallen from JWVJTT/.MO in 1889-90 to £2,074,828, in 38!>iJ-l!»00, ,the Gov ernment cannot therefore be held^to have broken any pledges not to un duly increase the production. The real reason for the diminution is admitted to be the "increased cul tivation of the poppy in China ; yet Britain is accused of poisoning China. The high Chinese officials said tq deploro tho havoc being wrought in China by opiuin. It is a fact, however, that many of these would-be humanitarian mandarins are themselves extensive cultivators of opium, and by every means in their power to stop the Importa* tion of Indian 'opium,' so that they may have the monopoly of the home grown ( Chinese ) urticle themsel ves.

—THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XXXI. "WE WERE CHUMS." When Cis Devcrel parted from Ida Duval, his manuor might liavo been like ice, but his heart was on (ire. lie was disgusted to think that a woman whom ho though unworthy of his lovo should have sueli power ovor him. It soemeil a 'sign of weakness, not to be ablo to trample oil an affection which ho had tried to drag up by the roots. Tho touch of her little hand upon his arm made tho blood tingle in his veins,' though ho walked by her side in stern silcnce. Perhaps lie might have relaxed a I little more, if he had been more sure of himself; but his heart had nearly burst with indignation, when ho caught Belgrave by tho collar, and ho was afraid of speaking one word lost he should say too much. Better to go away and loavc hor to think him cold and cruel, than stay and risk the dag ger of a" tete-a-tete, and the aftcr-peace of three lives. Ho had tho unselfish couragc to go, whilst a weaker man would have had the cowardice to stay, and...
