(By Associated Press.) Chicago, May 24.—A special to the Record-Herald from Washington, says: The decision of the supreme court of the United States is that the constitu tion does not follow the flag. This decision will be handed down next Monday. The decision is In favor of the government, but by a divided bench. There will be at least five opinions, but some of these are concurring opinions ex pressing the views of the writers more fully and faithfully than is done in the opinion of the majority. The court goes back to the period In which the republic was formed and the constitution framed and endeavors to as certain what was the intent of the found ers of the nation. The opinion of the majority of the opurt disposes of the uniform taxation clause of the constitution which has been invoked by all the appellants in these cases in the following manner. The framers of the constitution, in AGAINST AMERICA CONTINENTAL EUROPE WILL FORM A COMBINE. ALARMED OVER OUR SUCCESS Petty Jealousies Will Be Swallowed Up in the General Fear of American Commercial Domination—We Must Arrange a Truce or Have a Fight With Whole World. (By Associated Press.) New York, May 24.— Générai 'Manager Gustave H. Schwab of the North Ger man-Lloyd Steamship company In America, who has been in Europe for the last two and a half months and who returned home on the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse, in an interview upon busi ness conditions in Europe, said: "While in Europe, especially in Ger many and England, I saw that the busi ness men there were much disturbed ever the increasing competition from this side and seemed to fear the increase in power of industrial combinations. The alarm is so great that I am certain that some scheme of self protection on the part of the governments affected will undoubtedly be perfected. "Of course there are great difficulties to bet met in forming an industrial and commercial combination against the United tSates, but there is every reason to believe that efforts—efforts that may have serious consequences to the trade of this country—will be made. Concede Something or Fight. "I heard similar talk in Germany, which resulted in my becoming firmly convinced that commercial peace be tween this country and European na tions imperatively calls for a certain concession on our part, without effecting our own Industries. 'Unless we do make some kind of con cession, Europe will, as sure as fate, put some kind of a restraint duty on American products." Referring to the reported steamship combination effected by J. Pierpont Morgan, Mr. Schwab said: "The British public is giving a lot of concern but to the average steamship man who understands the situation, it dees not se.>m to be nearly so dangerous as some people think. As an American, speaking as the agent of German trans Atlantic lines, I do not think the report ed amalgamation will effect the con tinental lines. Germany will certainly keep abreast of the times.

No such question as is now presented had arisen in their minds. The clause "all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States," the court holds, was placed in the con stitution as a result of the Jealousies of the states whjch united n forming the nation. It was intended to prevent any state or combination of states securing -advantage over another or others; to pre vent the ports of one state gaining pre ference over those of another in the Im portation of goods. This rule of uniformity was made pri marily for the states united, the court holds, not for territories then possessed or afterwards acquired, and the consti tutional requirement is satisfied as long as all duties on imports are uniformly imposed at all the ports throughout the United States. The advantage of this uniformity may be extended to territories and possession not states and not members of the Amer-, ican union, but that is for congress to determine under the authority of the constitution. GATES GOES FOR PLEASURE His Visit to England Is Not for Busi ness—But He Would Sell Steel Trust Shares. (By Associated Press.) New York, May 24.—A dispatch to the Journal and Advertiser from London, says: John W. Gates, interviewed upon hi; arrival here, said: "My visit to England Is simply one of recreation and has no connection with business. I have no desire to do any thing for steel trust shares. It is quite certain, however, that these shares will rapidly advance within a short time. "Firms forming the combination have been making twenty-four million pounds annually. Taking as a basis their earn ings for a period of years a dividend of seven per cent is assured. The preferred shares of the trust I regard as one of the best investments that could be made. They are shares which will be put away in boxes as securities as they are on a perfectly sound base annd the right men have control of the corporation. "Regarding railroad matters I think both Atchison and Union Pacifies are certain to advance in value. "The country is experiencing an era of great prosperity. The new find of oil in Texas Is a highly promising one and will add to the national resources. The chief flow of oil is at Port Arthur, Tex as. I think the Standard Oil company will eventually acquire a holding there." C0RTELY0UB00M HE MAY BE THE NEW POST MASTER GENERAL.

(By Associated Press.) Philadelphia, May 24.—The debate on creed revision was continued by the Presbyterian general assembly today, and Cavalry church was unable to con tain the throngs that came to 'hear the discussion. Moderator Mlnto said he had found the sentiment of the assembly in favor of a full and fair presentation of the question, but suggested that the com missioners endeavor as far as possible to adhere to the rule of brevity, espe cially as the great ground had been staked out by the able speakers of yes terday. Rev. David S. Kennedy of Allegheny, Pa., yielded the floor to Judge E. W. C. Humphrey of Louisville, who signed the minority report with Dr. McKibben. Judge Humphrey urged the elimination rom the committee's report of the clause recommending a brief summary of file reformed faith bearing the same relation to the confession which the shorter catcheism bears to the larger catechism, and formed on the general model of the concensus creed. He claimed it meant practically a new creed and should not be concurred in, as the Presbyteries did not desire a new con fession. Dr. Kennedy followed with a forceful argument against revision. The •way to break down the confession, final ly, he said, is to go on making holes In it. (fr "We stand united on*the. confession," continued Dr. Kennedy. "It is construed from beginning to end to be used for scientific purposes. It is' the constitu tion of our church organ. We are not considering popular creed, but the fun damental principle of our organization.

No one forced us to sign that confession. We did not sign it in Ignorance, and I am sure not one of us signed it dishonestly. "I repudiate the statement that the confession does not set forth the man side and the personality of the Holy Spirit." This brought Rev. Dr. Herrick Johnson to his feet. "I beg your pardon," he said, "but if you refer to me, I did not say that." Dr. Kennedy replied that while he might have misunderstood Dr. John son's words, he had received that im pression. In conclusion, Dr. Kennedy said: "Our plan is that now is not the time for changes, while the church is under fire. We are not living in a constitu tion-making age. After a fair, deliber ate and free discussion, we find ourselves all' divided up. Let us wait until God, in His providence, brings us to the time when we can agree on the questions at issue." Rev. Dr. J. E. Moffatt of Cumberland, Md., became eloquent in his appeal to the assembly for confession that wou! 1 give a more even balance of truth. '.The confession," he said, "is a man made constitution, tout is not the word of Goa. And we are not discussing the word of God. If this question is voted down .by this assembly it will come to the front again until we give the church what It demands. I want to see side by side two great truths—first, the sover. elgnty of God, and above all His election of men; and, second, the freedom of 'ityin to choose. I believe that God has elected all infants to salvation." LAKE STEAMERS WRECKED One of Them Had 500 Passengers Aboard, on Their Way to Queen's Birthday Celebration. (By Associated Press.)

RUIN THE FISHERS CANADIANS OBJECT TO AMERI CAN TREATY. FISH BAIT IS THE TROUBLE If They Sell It to United States They Will Lose Their Own Fish Market— The Alaskan Boundary Is Interest ing Our Northern Brethren, and Must Soon Be Settled. (By Associated Press.) Ottawa, Ontario, May 24.—The leader of the opposition in the house last even ing asked for information respecting the announcement that the Joint high commission was shortly to resume its sittings. Sir Wilfred Laurier said he had reason to believe the sittings would be resumed. It was desirable to bring matters to an Issue of some kind. He said the Alaskan boundary had not been eliminated, but was in the very forefront of the negotiations. In jus tice to Canada and in justice to New foundland it was necessary that the commission should resume. If the sit tings failed, Canada would have to con sider the question of revising Us rela tions wjth Newfoundland. He also said it was important for all concerned that the Alaskan boundary should be definitely settled. If the com mission failed to reach a settlement, and the American and the Cunadian contentions were so far apart that the premier did not see any assurance that a settlement would be reached, and if a fair compromise could not be arrived at, then there must be arbitration. Fish Bait Privileges Valuable. The objection to the Bond-Blaine treaty, which is causing considerable discussion by Canada, is that it gives to the United States fishing vessels the privilege of entering the waters of New foundland and purchasing bait at all times and on the same terms as New foundland vessels. In return, the United States gives free admission to Newfoundland fish. This will prove, 50 it is said, disastrous to Canadian fishing. It appears from (tie announcement of the deputy governor of Newfoundland that the government will Introduce im portant railway legislation during the session. A revision of the tariff is prom ised. and a vote of $10,000 will he asked to entertain the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York in October.

Mr. Chamberlain is also to give an os tentatious luncheon to Sir Alfred Milner, to which, however, a number of leading liberals have declined invitations.
