Mistakes in Fiscal Laws
Pointed Out in
OTHER NATIONS' PREY
Seeks to Point a Remedy
for Decline of
Ixmdoui, Sept. 3(5. Premier Balfour
has issued the advance sheets of a
pamphlet on the subject of "insular
free trade," In which he presents at
length arguments in favor of a change
In Clrcnt Britain's fiscv.1 policy. In In
traducing the pamphlet Balfour says
his. purpose in issuing it is that it
would be impossible to put all the im
portant iH)ints of this question within
the limits of a single speech, and
therefore he says the pamphlet may
'be n fitting prellninary to the speech
which he will shortly make. This
undoubtedly refers to the speech Bal
four will make at Sheffield Oct. 1.
Views the Subject a. a Free Trader.
Balfour says he approaches the sub
ject from the standpoint of a free
trader as far as contemporary circum
stance will permit. He continues: "I
am a free trader, but not of the pat
tern which holds that the doctrine of
free trade is so universal in Its appli
cation and so capable of an exnet ex
pression that every conclusion towhich
it logically leads must be accepted
without hesitation and without re
serve." Point. Oat m Notable Fact.
The premier ioints out that as a
result of England's jioliey of retaining
a fiscal 'policy made for a free trade
country in a world of free traders,
rot for a free trade country in a
wjrld of protectionists, the rate of her
exiHirt trade has not increased, and in
fact hns seriously diminished. The
premier asserts that there is no reason
to expect an Improvement. Meanwhile
Germany, the United States, France,
Russia and even Great Britain's self
governing colonies, continues to build
up a protected interest within their
MISTAKES OF FREE TRADE
Aa Balfour See. The in and There
on British Trade.
Balfour says the mistakes made by
the free traders half a century ago
Lave left Great Britain bearing all
the burdens and enjoying only Lalf
the advantages which should attach to
the empire. He devotes considerable
space to the effect of protection upon
combinations in countries in which pro
tection exists. This, the premier points
out. Is to the disadvantage of the Brit
ish manufacturer, who is unable to
compete with the manufacturer who is
able to -n abroad at a lower price
than he charges for the same article at
home. He gives an instance of Ger
man steel In this particular, saying
that It is selling cheaper in England
than the English manufacturer can
posr-ibly produce It.
Balfour declares that the optimists
who advocate a continuance of the
free trade policy In place of the in
jury worked by protection on Great
Britain's interests are foolish, and
their arguments little short of reck
less. The only possible hope cf a
mitigation of the evil is through nego
tiation, which he says can only appeal
to self-interest in foreign protected
conntries. and in the case of the col
onies' to self Interest coupled with sen
timent. Balfonr concludes: '"Were I proved
to le wrong my opinion on the fundaT
mental question would remain un
changed. Where we fail others may
f-ueceed. It cannot 1k right for a coun
try with free trade ideals to enter into
competition with protectionist rivals,
self-deprived of the only instrument
whereby their policy can conceivably
le modified. The most essential ob
ject of our national efforts 6hould be
to get rid of the bond3 In which we
have gratuitously entangled ourselves.
The precise manner in which weshould
use our regained libery is important,
yet. after all, only a secondary Issue."
Trade Flrares Given.
London, Sept. 16. Government sta
tistics dealing with conditions were
issued today by the board of trade
in the shape of a blue book contain
ing tables and figures showing vari
ous aspects of the British foreign
tradeand industrial conditions. One
of the most important phases dealt
with are imports and exports.
The tables show that the exports
from. the United Kingdom to the
United States declined from $145,000,
000 in 1S90 to .$97,500,000 in 1902, while
imports rose from $485,000,000 to $635,

Result of Alaskan Boundary Hear
' Ing Before Commission at
London, Sept. 10. The first day of
the oral arguments in the Alaskan
boundary question was taken up by
Attorney General Finlay, who partly
presented the Canadian view of this
imiortaut controversy. "When the tri
bunal adjourned for the day, tb,e Cana
dians were gratified at secriug wbai
they believed to Imp the first good point.
The attorney general sought to estab
lish the position of Portland channel
and fix the entrance thereto.
He interpreted the words "a la
hauteur de" in the Itusso-British cor
respondence leading to the signature of
the treaty of 1S2.", not as showing that
the boundary lies "on the same pa
rallel" and the lower end of IV.uce of
A Vales island, as claimed by the Unit
ed States, but '"off of" as asserted by
Canada. The effect of this would be
to fix the .line at 54 degrees 45 min

Justice Alverstoue agreed with Attor

A valuable explanation is given the
much quoted excess of imports over
exports which is so often held a sign
of British trade decline. The book
says that while the excess in yearly
averages is $800,000,000, the income re
ceivable from foreign investments is
calculated at $312,500,000, which, add
ed to the earnings of the British mer
chant .fleet engaged in foreign trade
calculated at $450,000,000, is probably
more than sufficient to account for
the excess of the average' imports.

Bent to Prison San Do
"Puerto Principe, Cuba, Sept. 1G.
President Palma, after he started from
Havana on his tour of eastern Cuba,
traversed long stretches of sparcely in
halu'ted country. At every town he
was greeted by squadrons of mounted
Cubans, received addresses from 'the
officials and party leaders, and was
presented with bouquets by pretty
senoritas, who made speeches of wel
come. The enthusiasm increased when
the president entered the region In
which opioition to the administration
was reputed to be the strongest. On
his arrival at Puerto Principe the en
tire vicinity of the station was filled
with a cheering mas of jn'ople of all
colors and conditions. Nearly thewhole
population followed the carriages con
tabling the presidential party to the
provincial building, where Senor Palma
was formally welcomed.
Modestly Dears His Honors.
Commenting on the enthusiastic re
ception accorded him the president dis
claimed that it was a tribute to his
personal popularity. He said: "It is
the result of the people's joy over the
success of the republic, and the tribute
is tendered to me as the chief execu
tive." President Palma Is making no
speeches save brief responses to ad
dresses of welcome. When local shak
ers bring up the snbjee-t of the revo
lutionary soldiers' pay the status of the
matter is courtesously and briefly ex
plained by the president.
LABOlt LEADERS IN TROUBLE
Charged with Insulting the United States
Flag and Threatening Hunt.
San Juan, Porto Kico, Sept. 10.
Eduardo Conde and Leonidas GuIIlot,
two socialists who spoke at a recent
meeting of the American Federation
of Labor, were put on trial for insult
ing the United States flag and threat
ening the life of Governor Hunt. Their
speeches teemed' with abuse of the gov
ernment. One of the prisoners was ac
cused of advising the workmen, upon
the return of Governor Hunt on Oct 1
fron the United States, to parade, car
rying black flags, and then to make de
mands upon the government. If these
demands were refused, the speaker
added, the alternate of killing Govern
or Hunt remained.
The other orator was said to have
declared that the United States flag
was a rag fit only. to cover rascals and
criminals. The accused vehemently de
nied the charges. They were tried be
fore Justice Kopel, convicted of - an
archist conduct and senteced to" six
months in prison.
Justice Kopel says the .flag Is higher
than the law andanarchists need never
expect any mercy in . his court. The
case has established a precedent as a
Porto Rican oifficial warning that at
tacks on the flag and government must
stop. The United Statesans and loyal
Porto RIcans are Jubilant, while the
socialists are angry at this decision.
The convicted men will appeal from
the Judgment.nlleglng that Justice Ko
pel had no Jurisdiction, as there Is no
law covering the offense. The interest
in the case is intense.

After the conference Murphy said:
"The Pennsylvania decision, which evi

law in Pennsylvania, but when it con

uphold the proceedings of the militia
