he had not made any promises to secure the in

that h» never had tried to influence them: in fact,

: Count Reventlow Expects American Fleet
To Be Kept in Pacific.
Berlin, March 17. — Count Ernst Beventlow, the
. naval authority, has published in the "Tagliche
, Rundschau" sin appreciation of the voyage made
I by the American battleship fleet aroun<; South
! America. The writer doubts, however, whether the
■ naval strategists at Washington will advise the
j Bed to return to the Atlantic by the Suez Canal
! after It has visited Australia and the Philippines.
| The count believes that the political effect of the.
i American naval demonstration will be largely lost
I unless the fleet remains in the Pacific until the
1 Panama Canal Is completed. He commends, how
: ever, the wisdom of Washington in sending the
j fleet to Australia, saying the British alliance with

PAN-AMERICAN COMMITTEE CHOSEN
Rio De Janeiro Conference Bears Fruit —
Washinaton. March IT.— Responding to the invi
tation of Secretary Root, the organization of what
<= regarded as a strong committee was perfected
to-day to execute, so far a- possible, the sugges
tions of the last Pan-American conference, which
was held at Rio de Janeiro last year. The commit
tee is known as the Pan-American Committee of
the United States. W. I. Buchanan, of Buffalo,
was m ide chairman. Andrew Carnegie vice-chair
man, and John Barrett, director of the Bureau of
American Republics, secretary. An executive com
mittee of five was authorized, of which Professor
I. S. Rowc. of the University of Pennsylvania, is
to be chairman. Another meeting is to be held
within a month.
The meeting to-day took place in th» diplomatic
room of the State Department. Its feature was
an address by Secretary Root, who reviewed the
work of the Rio de Janeiro conference, which he
attended, calling attention to the necessary -••:
to be taken iii the propaganda intended to bring
closer together the countries of the Western
The chairnnnship of the committee was urged
upon Mr. Root, but h" declined on the ground that
it was his belief the committee could be more
effective if independent of the Depart men i of
State. Andrew Carnegie was next offered the
chairmanship, but expressed himself as willing to
be vice-chairman, pleading his necessarj absence
from th*. country as, the reason why he should not
head the committee. United States Senator M ■■-
Creary was added to the committee.

Aldrich Bill Amendments Adopted—
• La Follettc Speaks.
[From Th* Tribune Bureau.]
Washington. March I".— Senator Aldrich, for the
Committee on Finance, announced in the Senate
to-day that the committee had adopted amend
ments to the Aldrich bit; providlnp that railroad
bonds should be stricken from the bill: that the
currency issued with other bonds as a basis should
under no circumstance, exceed their par value, and
that not more than 59.000.000 of national bank cir
culation should be retired In any one month, this
belnp the Tiliman amendment!
It is explained th.it several publican Senators
would have been seriously embarrassed in their
states by the retention of the railway bond pro
vision. While its elimination by the House was al
most certain. It was deemed wiser, therefore, to
strike the provision from the bill. The TiHman
amendment is also regarded by the bill's friends as
safeguarding the money market from any strln
[ ■RiCjr as a Waul! of too rapid retirement of national
j bank circulation. In effect it meiely leaver tl;e cx
