ESTRADA APPEALS.— The Estrada fac- ■
tion In Nicaragua has appealed to the j
I "tilted States to Intervene to end present
j hostilities and has proposed the selection |
' of a provisional President and an early
' election, with the condition that neither I
Estrada nor ICadrta be a candidate, It is j
I further proposed that the new government j
' recognize th deb' • of the existing admin- j
j istration, and the • sited States exercise j
! its good offices to secure a '•>:• election. !
The ESstrada proposition v.ill not be con- ;
| ■idered by this government unless ii •'•■-
' ceives the Indorsement of the Madrls .'a - j
1 tli n, as any other course would be tanta- j
I mount to an effort to save the Estrada Hes j
j sfler they had been signally defeated.!
| There is no indicatl that the Uadriz soy- \
| eminent will sanction any such proposi- i
tion. Befior Corca. who is representing |
Madris In Washington, maintains that ;
j Uadrfs is a constitutional President, and '
while this contention may be rejected by
Secretary Knox he will probably bide his j

Iby -a regular election or until lii." sue- |

j nents of Governor Hughes are dead and i
i merely awaiting interment. The only trou- !

that they are dead, and it is therefore es- j

I that fact to them. They could not com- j
mand a corporal's guard among the Re- j
publicans of tii Empire State, but, utter
, ly oblivious of the fact, they go on bold- !
, ir.g meetings and adopting resolutions and

All this is very entertaining, but it must

work injury to the Republican party in the

was made to-day by a man high up in
the councils of the party, and it expresses !
the views of a majority of the New York i
! delegation In Congress, all of whom are j
! greatly pleased with Senator Root's letter

NO PLACE FOR ROOSEVELT.-A beau

; but the Committee on Library Is at a loss j

; placing the Roosevelt bust in the Marble
; Room, the reception room of the Senate,
i where it could be seen to better advantage ,
i than In the niches above the galleries. It ,
i is regarded as a work of especial artistic i
merit, despite the fact that it could not be j

TARIFF WITH CANADA
Commission Believed to Have
A rra nged Concessions.
[From The Tribune Bureau.]
■Washington. March 9.— Charles M. l>p
, per. of the State Department, and Henry
] C. Emery, chairman of the Tariff Board.
i who, with Consul General Foster, repre
j stnted the United States at the tariff
j negotiations at Ottawa, will return to
I Washington to-morrow to tak<» up with
i the State Department the results of their
After the existiug situation has been
; carefully considered negotiations will be
i resumed by the. two governments. Air
I though no direct results were achieved,
! the negotiations were conducted In the
j most friendly md sympathetic spirit on
i bV'tli sides, and it is probabK t>»s.« some
: arrangement may be made which will ob
j viate the difficulties in the way of -rjnt
; InR Canada the minimum rate.
Thin will probably, as In the case of
j France, take the- form of a compensatory
j concession oiv-ythe part of Canada which
i will remove th** objection of discrimination
! ii; favor of France and other mo I favored
I Stations under Canadian tariff treaties. It
■ Is probable that after the State Depart
' ment has gone over the situation a pro
j posal of this kind was made to Canada,
! and it is confidently believed that the con
' cessions will be made, as the interests of
i both countries are too great to be dis
j turbed by a tariff war. and as the United
; States is. willing to make such, concession
! a.- can he allowed under the requirements
i of the. Payne, law.
The counter proposal of the French gov
i ptnment to enlarge the list of articles on
: which the French minimum rate has been
: allowed has fallen s.i far short of the fx
; pcctatiqns of the United States that the
' negotiations seemed to-day nearer than
i ever to a nock, it whs expected that
i either the entire minimum rate or cer
tain compensatory concessions would he
offered. The fact that the situation is de
layed and complicated by the revision of
'■ the tariff now in progress it France makes
ihe negotiations all the more difli'-ult.
There i* a disposition to accept in place
of the full minimum rate cf France an
arrangement by which the minimum rate
would he applied to article*" of prime Im

would apply on other article?, provided the

ROOT OPPOSES PENSIONS. - That
Senator Root believes the time has com*
hen a halt should be called on the whole
sale pension system which has so lonp been
practised was made manifest to-day when
Mr. Root made Inquiries regarding a bill
on the calendar, explaining that when th*
Curtis bill granting pensions to widows ol
veterans whose marnlag?* occurred subse
quent to -Juno 26. ISW, should come up he
desired to bo heard.. According to th« esti
mate of the Pension Bureau, the passage
of the Curtis bill would add twenty thousand
widows of ■veterans to the pension rolls the
first year. If that estimate is correct, the
cost would be $2,550,Q00 a year. The limita
tion of Juno 2<i, IS!*?, was made- to prevent
women who married old veterans from en
joying pensions as the result of their mar
i iaee. Mr. Root Indicated to-day that be
would oppose the measure when it came
before the Senate. -.
SUBMARINE SIGNALS.— Senator Lodge
secured the adoption by the Senate to-day
of a bill authorising the construction of
submarine signal bells at such places along;
the coast and In the Great I^akes as may
be deemed necessary by the Lighthouse
Hoard. These .signals consist of a bell sub
merged fifteen to twenty feet and sounded
by a small engine on shore ami an electric
cable. Th« bell can be made to sound a
given signal, by which it can he recognized
by the masters of vessels equipped with the
proper receiving apparatus. It was by
means of the submarine signal sent out
from the light vessel stationed at Nantueket
that the White Star liner ■ Baltic was ena

In collision with the Florida off Nantucket
Shonls. The night was so foggy that the

distance, but when the Republic reported
that Fhe had picked up the Nantucket sub
marine bell, '•bearing north-northeast and

NEW YORK STREAMS.-Senator Root
secured tho passage to-day of the bill re
ported by Senator Depew, giving the. city
of. New York ontrol over such streams as
are wholly within the city limits. General
Marshall, chief of engineers, reported that
there would be no injury to navigation from
permitting New York City to appropriate
these streams and to make such improve
ments as were contemplated, and Senator
Root briefly explained the necessity of the
measure to the Senate, after which it was
passed without division.
STANDARD APPLES— A hearing before
the Agricultural Committee of the House
to-day on Representative Lafeaa's bill pro
viding for t!;e»grading and standardization
of apples brought out the fact that since
Canada has adopted this plan her apples
have brought higher prices than those of
New York. J. P. Hal». secretary of the
Horticultural Society of Connecticut, fa
vored the bill, and said that before Canada
adopted a grading system her apples
brought 25 cents a bushel less than those
from New York, but that in recent years
the situation was almost reversed. He said
that foreign countries were suspicious of
American apples because, while they are
good on top of the barrel, those on the bot
tom are "nubbins." Apple producers from
Oregon and Washington spoke against the
bill. G. G. 11.

REPLY TO STANDARD
Charges Oil Company tcith
Washington, March It— "Kither the She?
man act should be repealed or it should b*
enforced in a manner to make the people
With this declaration of it? guiding princi
ple, the Department of Justice to-day Hied
with the Supreme Court of the United
States a thouaand-page brie* in support of
its petition that the Standard Oil Company
he dissolved as In violation of the Sherman
antl-tru«t law. The brief will be the found
ation of the government's oral argument at
the hearing of the case by tiie Supreme
Court, next Monday. It hears the names of
Attorney Ucnera! Wlckersham and of
Frank B. Kellogg. Charles B. Morrison and
Cordenio A Severance as special assistants?
One of the two thick volumes of the brief
is devoted to an analysis of testimony taken
in the Circuit Court of the United States
for the Eastern District of Missouri, which
decreed that tho Standard Oil Company be
dissolved. It represents year-- of govern
mental in\e ti'-ratio'i of Uie oil business.
The government says that this shows re
bates and discriminatory rates received by
the Standard Oil combination, not only dur
ing its formative period, but during the last
ten years, "whereby the Standard was en
abled to brine a large part of the concern!
Into the combination and to crush out and
eliminate from the field of competition the
principal part of the balance."
It Is maintained by the government that
it shows "a system of lowering the price?,
where competitors are doing business, be
low the cost of the product, while kecpins
up or raising the prices In other parts of
the country until the competitor is either
eliminated or his business brought within
a compass so that the Standard Oil Com
pany can control It; of obtaining secret in
lormatioM as to competitive business, large
ly through bribing railway employes, and
usiner that secret information to procure
countermanding of orders of Independents
and to facilitate their system of price cut
tine and oppression; of the use of so-called
bocus independent companies whose opera
tions are predatory and oppressive," prin
cipally used to drive out competitors, and
various other means."
"We do not wish to he understood as dis
couraging enterprise," says the government,
"or as taking a position against legitimate
competition, but if the Sherman act means
anything in this country it means a monop
oly acquired by such methods of compe
tition as this. Unless It is enforced the
small corporation or individual who wishes
to engage In business will have absolutely
no opportunity at all.
"In tnauv districts the Standard Oil Com
p?.ny lias an absolute monopoly. We mean
by absolute monopoly that In those dis
tricts it docs all of the business and has;
eliminated every competitor. Practically
this is the <aye throughout the Jtorky
Mountain countrj and most of the Pacific
Coast states. The percentage of indepcii
:le;,t business throughout the entire South
ern States is very small."

which are regarded as emanating from
sources hostile to the administration or
which seem designed for political rath-:

The Rue de la Paix
Has Been Brought to New York
Paris Shops, True in Architecture,
Present the Latest Paris Nov
elties, Today, at Wanamaker's.
How our American travellers love the famous little shops ca
the Rue de la Paix! And how closely all students of fashsji^
watch those magical shop windows for a new idea in neckwear «
blouses, in perfumery or jewelry!
But all who love art and fashions in their fir^t bloom cannot It
in Paris in March, when the first arbutus buds of apparel and dew
ration pop up to relieve the mid-season dullness.
Rut, WANAMAKER'S IS ALWAYS IN PARIS.
Scores of Wanamaker eyes are ever watchful for the NEW.
And always the Wanamaker brains are thinking of the new
ways to delight the clients of these ever-new stores.
And so the PARIS-CONFERENCE idea was evolved.
To bring, twice yearly, the earliest Parisian beauty things, fat
the enjoyment of our friends in New York and Philadelphia ufttt
weeks earlier than they can be seen elsewhere.
Today's presentation is not our usual Paris Costume Exhibi
tion — that is an event of a week or so later on — but it is an a^seif
blage of lingerie, lingerie dresses, blouses, women's neckwear, nil*
linery, parasols, dress goods and silks, dress trimmings, fancy work
cushions, embroideries, babies' wear, jewelry, perfumery, and o*he r
accessories of the toilette. All just off the steamers and ntw it
Paris three weeks ago.
The exhibition is ready as you read, and those who love beauty
and fashion are invited to view the collection today or any day this
week that meets their convenience. Third floor. Old BuilAaf*
Rajah Silk Often Imitated
But Never Copied
"Rajah" stamped on the selvage protects one from all tmUaUWs*
Rajah silk is woven with * very fine but sturdy warp—- the waif
is the body of a silk fabric.
Rajah is not loaded to give it momentary body. Neither is it
filled-in to give the rough, uneven surface which makes it beautiful
This is caused by "lumps" in the natural silk which is import^
specifically for the weaving of Rajah.
Late fashion magazines and style authorities predict an unusu
ally great vogue for silk suitings for the coming season.
It is very apparent that Rajah will lead this vogue— because
it is the or iginfil rough silk suiting and it cannot be copied.
Fifty colors on Fashion's color calendar for the Spring and
Summer of 1910 arc here. Natural and black have their own
followers independent of color styles — so both of these are here in
abundance. 27 inches wide. $1.25 yard. I ■' ■■ "■ "* '
