A further section grants a rebate of
customs tax on goods which have paid

Berlin, Dec. 10.-Dr. Hasse, the Pan
German leader in the relchstag, has
been defeated, at least temporarily in
his purpose of bringing the Edinburgh
speech of British Colonial Secretary
Chamberlain before the reichstag, by
the sudden and possibly diplomatic ill
ness of Dr. Von Thielmann, the secre
tary of the treasury. It was Mr.
Hasse's intention to start a discussion
on Chamberlain's remarks during the
interpellation today of the subject of
veterans' pensions. An exciting ses
sion was expected, but the sensation
was postponed by the announcement
that Dr. Von Thielmann, who was to
have replied to the interpellation, is
suffering from influenza.

Washington, Dec. 10.-The reported
assignment of Monslgnor Scalabrlni

probable. Monsignor Spalabrli is re
garded as one of the ablest ecclesias
ties of the church in Italy.

The program opened with the song,
B ..The True Heart," sung by 19 Ger

Judge Murray Tuley. chairman of the
Chicago branch of the Transvaal
league under the auspices where the
meeting was held.
There were 500 people on the stage
when Mr. Cockran the orator of the
evening, arose and bowed in resogni
tion of the tumult of applause which
greeted him. He spoke at length and
time and again was compeltei"to stop
until applause ceased.
The meeting closed with a remark
ale demonstration. Following a speech
by Bishop Spaulding of Peoria, Ill.,
the great audience roared its approval
t of the Boer cause, the cheering being
long and continued and then contri
butions were asked for the relief of
the stricken women and children in
the South African camps. The first
response was a check for $500 sent up
by a man who requested that his name
be withheld. Then followed checks
for $100, the contributors of this
amount being numerous.
When smaller sums were asked for,
money came freely from all parts of
the great auditorium. The total

izens. believing that the wanton de
struction of property of non-combat
ants by British military authorities In
South Africa (without precedent in
modern times, save by English officers
- in the war of the American revolution)
is a source of needless suffering to the
people of the South African republics
and without advantage to the military
operations of the British army, and
that the slaughter of the helpless and
innocent, caused by English prison
pens, is a causeless outrage upon the
humanity of the civilized world which
amply justifies concenerated remon
strance by American and European
states; and believing that the rights
and obligations of common humanity
are not determined by geographical or
political limitations; and regarding
the treaty of 1871 as made to be ob
served by England as well as by Amer

protest against the acts of the English

do hereby pledge ourselves to use our
utmost powers to make this, our pro
test, known to our several represento
tives in the American congress, and to
cause a copy of these resolutions to
be brought to the attention of the
president of the United States with
our most respectful but urgent peti
tion that the treaty of Washington of
May 8. 1871, be strictly enforced, and
that the use of American ports and
waters be henceforth denied to ves
sels operating under British charters
for the augmentation of supplies of
war; and that the president of the
United States will employ every possi
ble means to bring to an end the hor
rors of concentration camps and a war
fare which. by its unexampled ferocity
and enormous coat of life and treas
ure has astounded the civilized world.
"Resolved, that the chairman be au

citizens of Chicago to call the atten

tions and inform him of the sentiment
of the citizens of Chicago, and that
such committee shall have power to
add to its number citizens of other:

T NEW CANAL TREATY
J It Is the Only Measure of Importance
to Come Before the Senate-The
Philippine Tariff May Come
up in the Houne.
t Washington, Dec. 10.-The only
a measure of importance which the sen
1 ate has on its calendar for this week
1 is the new Hay-Pauncefote treaty.
- making provision for the abrogation
of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty and
opening the way for the construction
of an isthmian canal by the United
States. Acting for the committee on
foreign relations Senator Lodge will
ask the senate to go into executive
session to-day for the consideration
of the treaty and each day hereafter
until the convention Is disposed of.
It can be said that the treaty will be
ratified, and it now looks as if this
result would be secured after compara
tively little delay. There will be some
debate and some features of the docu
ment will be closed as undesirable, but
there is no probability of captious op
Beyond the consideration of the
treaty very little business will be un
dertaken before the holidays. It is now
generally agreed that the question of
reciprocity will go over until January,
probably without 'so much as being

The house will probably pass the
measure to meet the situation created
by the Philippine decision of the su
preme court. Up to the present time,
however, the Republican members of
the ways and means committee have
not decided upon the character of the
measure which will be reported. A
difference of opinion exists to to what
should be done.
SMint Director'. Report.
Washington, Dec. 10.-The report of
Geo. E. Roberts. director of the mint
for the fiscal year ending June 30. 1901.
shows the coinage amounted to 176.
999,132 pieces of the value of $136,340,
781. Of this $99,065,715 was in gold.
$24,298850 in silver dollars. $10.9G3,648
in fractional silver and $2.009,56S in
minor coins. There also were coined
at the Philadelphia mint 225.000 gold
pieces of the value of $349,014 for the
government of Costa Rica.
The estimated production of gold in
the United States during the calendar
year 1900 was of the value of $79,179,
000, and notwithstanding the fact that
this country led the world in produc
tions, its imports exceedled its exports
by $12.866,010. The production of North
America. practically all of which conies
to the United States, was $116.051,500.
The world's coinage of gold in the
calendar year 1900 was $354,936,497 and
of silver $177,011.902.
The industry consumption of gold in
the United States during the calendar
year 1900 is estimated at $16,367,500,
and of the world approximately $75,
000,000. The stock of subsidiary coin
in the country is limited by law to
$100,000,000 and on Nov. 1, 1901, the ex
isting stock was $90.313.512.
It is suggested that the limit of the
country's stock of subsidiary coin be
raised to at least $120,000,000. No goc l
reason is apparent, says the repor
why the coinage of dollar pieces should
not be allowed to cease and all of the
silver on hand be used in subsidiary
