'To escspo the dolay and uncertainty of
treaties. It has been suggested thnt a practica
ble and i rompt mode of testing the quostlon
was to submit an amondmontto the pending
tariff bill authorizing tho l'rosldont to declaio

our Hour, corn meal, and othor bieadstuITs,
preserved meats, 11th, egetablos and fruits,
cottonseed oil. rice, and other provi
sions, including all articles of food, lum
ber, furnlturo, and other articles of wood,
agricultural implements and machinery, min
ing ami mechanical maoliineiy, etructutal
eteol and iron, steel rails, locomotives, railway
cars and supplies, street cars, and refined pe
troleum. I montlon tho&o particular articles
because they have boon most frequently re
ferred to as tlioeo with which ax aluablo ex
change could bo readllv effected The list
could no doubt be profitably enlarged by a
careful Investigation of tho noeds und advan
tages of both tho home and foreign markets.
"The opinion was goncrat among tho for
eign delegates that tho legislation heroin re
ferred to would lead to the opening of now and
profitable markets for the products ot which
xve pave bo largo a surplus, and thus Invlgo
rata every branch of agricultural and mechan
ical ImlUBtry. Of courso tho exchanges in
volved in thoso propositions would bo rondored
imposslblo If Congress, In Its wisdom, should re
peal tho duts on sugar by direct legislation, In
stead of allowing the same objoot to be attain
ed by the reciprocal airangement suggested.
It has been so often and so persistently stated
that our tariff laws offered nn Insurmountable
barrier to a largo oxchango of products with
the Latln-Amorlcan nations that I doom It
proper to call csnaclal nttontlon to the fact that
more than H7 per cent, of tho products of thoso
nations tent to our ports are now admitted
free. If sugar Is placed upon tho froo list,
practically overy Important article exported
fiom those States will ho given untaxed access
to our markets except wool. Tho real
difliculty in tho way of negotiating profitable
reciprocity treaties is that vvo have given
freoh fcomucli that would have had value in tho
mutual (oncosslons which such treaties Im
ply. 1 cannot doubt, howovor, that tho pres
ent advantages which tho products of these
bear and Irlundly Mutes enjoy in our market,
though thoy are not bylaw.oxcluslve, will, with
othei considerations, fnvorably (IIbposo thorn

There can bo no doubt 1 think, that, with

the old headquarters of the I.nrchmont Yacht
Club at Nhopard's 1'olnt, I.archmont Mnnor,
whloh tho T utile Club had bought and im
proved. Tho club has four no res of
ground, and e.xpocts to buy ten acres more.
There nro threo handsome buildings, one of
them the main club house, with private dining
rooms and sleeping rooms, la addition to the
rooms set apart for usual club ptirposos, a cot

ments, and a billiard pavilion. In addition,
tho club Is now building n dining pa
vilion, whore ths turtlo dinners will
bo glvon, and a kitchen attachment
with four hugo cauldrons for tho brewing of
turtlo soup. Though not completed, both tho
pavilion and kitchen vvoro used at o.tonlay's
festivities, and Caterer John Tarboll was busy
at the big cauldrons for forty-eight hours be
forehand, that length of time being necossary
for tho proper preparation of turtle soup ac
cording to tha traditions of the club.
Next to tho turtlo soup the chief feature of
yesterday's banquettng was anclont history,
as boiame an organization of such yoars nnd
dignity upon such an occasion. It was told
oxer and over again that the club was founded
in 17'JfJ bv Aaron Iitirr, Alexander Hamilton,
Do Witt Clinton, and othors: that the members
In thoso dais caught tiioir own turtles
In Jamaica liny and other noar-by wntors,
nnd thnt oaeh member wos expoctod
to oat his own catch: that the din
ners were first enten In the illyslan Fields;
thnt the oloth wsb next spread In Weehawkon
for a few years then at Mnntciali. N. J and
thennt Rtrykers liay near Fifty-third street.
J'ow ork: and thnt twenty years ago the club
begun to feast at Oabe OaBo's. and thnt tho
feasting had continued at that famous road
house ever since until this yoar, when, after an
Itinerant oxistenco ot noarly a century, tho
club has settled down for good at Larchmout.
joatorday's festivities began early. A special
train irom the Grand Contral depot at b o clook
carried I'd1) members to I.archmont nnd short
ly aftor !) o'clock ISO persons sat down to tho
first brenkfast In tho club s first home. Break

tlvitles. 'i ho bill of faro consisted yesterday,
as from ttmo immemorial, of turtle
stoak, fried ools, stowed eels, cucumbem
and onions, tomatoes, oofTeo, nnd hot rolls.
After breakfast tho members, all of whom had
come to mako a day of It, sot about tilling In
tho time boforo the 4 o'clock dinner, at which
tho club house) was to bo formally opened,
bonitor Tommy Dunham led tho anglers,
among whom woreAsdemblyman Martin. J. J.
Dobtis, ox-bonator U. 11. Wilson, and ex-As-Borablyronn
U. E. Pcotleld. They caught n
erent mess of sea roblnB. eels, and
flounders off tho roks during tha alter
noon, with nn occasional cunner and
blaekflsh Moantime tho quiet members
went curiosity hunting, and Tom I'earsall of
Long Island louud no loss than twelve land
turtles, on whoso sholls ho scratched the
ilovlco of tho club before releasing them. Hut
the vast majority of tho club did nothing but
drink lu tho landscnpe, waterscape, and
othor things until dinner tlmo. Among thoso
who occupied themselves In this way wore:

London, Juno 19. An address waB presented
to Mr. Htanloy at Ilerwlek to-day. In reply ho
spoko in tho most outhuslaBtla torms ot tho
wisdom of Lord Hullsbury as shown In tho set
tlement with (lormnny of tha Afrlcnnquostlon.
lly the agreotnont between the two countries
500,000 square miles of ton Itorr were added to
the British possessions In Africa.
Instead of a dolorous ttrado against the
Prime Minister, Mr. Htanlav said, now Is the
tlmo to slug n pfan In his honor. It Is now
posslblo to realize tho groat dream ot those
xvho ate concornod in tho oxploratlon and
civilization ot Africa from tho Capo of Good
Hope to Cairo. In conclusion Mr, btnnley said
thnt God gnvo Lord Salisbury tho wisdom to
gain this end. and exprossod tho hopo that the
Prime Minister long might llvo and flourish.
Henry M. Htanloy, In receiving tho freodom
ot Nowcnstlo, repeated his laudations of Lord
Salisbury, and said thnt, looking at tbo unex
pected turn of ovonts, it was not right to crltl
clso too minutely. Ho saw good will on both
the German and tho L'nglish sldo. En
tering into tioiaus oi tne vaiuo, posi
tion, Ac, ot the regions acquired
ho declared that It Germany had acquired
Home territory whloh L'ngland would have
liked to retain. England was amply compen
sated elsewhere, nud the granting of free tran
sit In tlio Gorman regions wbb as good for the
English ne the possession ot tho torrltory.
Further, it would now bo to Germany's Interest
to jolu England in doiuauding the freedom of
the Zambosl. nnd thus tho Portuguese dlQlcul
ty xvould bo removed.
Dwelling with enthusiasm npon tho nros-
Eocts lu Africa, ho said ho w as confident thnt If
o could muster nil tho chlefo of tho regions
that England hnd acquired thov would acqui
esce In tho opinion that the daioof tho agree
ment would be a red Icttoi day InthoAfilcun
calendar. He wna sure that whoa the news
spread a grand feast day xvould Lo held
throughout tho Interior of Afrkn.
In conclusion, ho doclarod that Pemba, It
put on the market, would fetch tun tlinon as
much as Heligoland, to say nothing of Zanzi
bar. He would bo pleased if the Mayor colled
n mooting of citizens to couxoy congratula
tions to J ord balisbury, who had dono more
than u lotion of explorers could have dono.
'J ho Jinitu lues's Paris correspondent de
clares that Franco and Hussla will oppose an
English protectorate over Zanzibar.
Tho niorriDi'n llorlln correspondent says:
" The idea of ceding Heligoland to Germany
was entirely England's, and thu spontaneity
ot the oiler gavoLniporor William much pleas
ure. Tho Colonial party Is Indignant and dis
appointed, but tho londors of the National
Liberals and a majority of tlio ltolohstag en
dorse the agreement fully. Thooesslon of He
ligoland has llattored tho national prldo. The
Voi$uche 'uluug, the lagblatl, nnd tho ISoer
sen. Courier all express congratulations upon
the success of tho Emperor and tho Govern
ment, and the nnauclnl world is delighted."
The VliTomcle protests against Lord Halls
bury going out of tho way to onlurge tho ter
ritorv of Oerraany when thoro is tho utmost
necisslty, on account of Newfoundland, to cul
tivate the friendliness of Franco. It thinks the
Government blunder has brought us within
moosurabla distance of dissolution. If tho
Heligoland bill Is rejected, the Ministers will
bo bound to appeal to tbo country.
A despatch from the lime s'n correspondent
at Berlin says: " It would be nn International
misfortuno if the current ot German thankful
ness toward England should bo converted Into
n loss fraternal fouling by the rejuction by the
British Parliament of tho bill for tho session
of Heligoland to Germany in return for terri
torial concessions In Africa mado by Germany
to England. The Germans are delighted bo
j ond measure with tho successful toi ruination
of the Anglo-Gorman negotiations regarding
African torrltory."
In an intorvlow Mr. Charles 17. Allen, F. II.
G. 8.. Secretary of the British and foreign
Anti-Slavery Society, said he greatly approved
the Anglo-German settlement. With the es
tablishment of an English protectorate over
Zanzibar, It will now be England's fault If
slavery continues In that section of Africa.
In tho House of 1 ords to-day tho Earl of
Ilosobory asked whethor thv Government be
fore arranging for the transfer ot Heligoland
to (j or main, bad consulted the naval and mili
tary authorities ; ulso. xvhether an effort had
been made to ascertain tho wishes of tho in
habitants of Heligoland In the mnttor.
'I he Marquis of balisbury replied that the
Government boforo coming to a decision had
nvnlled tliomselves ol nilvioo not oxolusivoly
military or naval. Although no plebisoito bad
boon talcou in Heligoland there was no ground
for supposing that the inhabitants objected to
the transfer, oxeept as retarded conscription,
nnd this had been provided againBt lu the
In the Houbo of Commons Mr. W. H. Smith
said that conditions Inserted in tho agreement
with Gormnuy removed whatexer objection tho
inhabitants ot Heligoland might have to tho
transfor of tholr turrltory, as far as compulsory
military service was concornod. The Govern

The Imprisoned men cannot be reached for

within a tew feet of tbo line leading from the
Mahoning to tho Hill 1 arm mine, but utter that
Is reached tho men will have to drive
through eexenty-Hvo foot of t oal to
reach their Imprisoned comrades. Tho
best authorities In tho rescuing pnity hold
that It will bo alter 12 o'clock to-morrow be'oro
the men nie reachod. Boit Wormley, the
former superintendent of the initio, was seen
at his house this evonlng. He had just romo
down from the mine to eat a bite. He said:
" 1 was going down the heading a short way

The news that the eutoiubud mlnsii had ,

tho little mining town, and in a bhort time the
mouth of tho Mnhonlng mine was crowded j
At least 500 people wore cathored thoie. 'Ihe
excitement grew more Intense onch momoiit,
and tho crowd gathered fo clo-oly about the
mouth of tho pit that tbe coal and iron police
wore finally compelled to move them buck.
About H P. M. Mine Boss Gray enmo up Irom

party might rench tho party nt any time. Tho
sound nf tannine: ntrainst tho wall bus I eon
hoard. Tho ruBCuers are Inspired with fresh
courage. They do not now fear danger, and it
is probable that thoy will not meet with any.
At 11 o'clock u thousand people were at the
mine. In some way or other the news was
spread that tho men wero sate. Every one who
bad frlonds in tho inino was there. Tho enmo
