IiNUOS. July 31. It is difficult to exaggerate
tho Importance of tbo notion of tho British
Government In denouncing tho existing com
nierclal treaties with Gormany nd Belgium. It
It the first official act toward the execution ot
tbe radically new potior ot the so-called con
solidation ot the British Empire. As such It
mark now departure, which 'will not tall to
bare far-reaching effects on the world' com
merce. Germany iocs In It alio an official expression
ottbo unfriendliness which has beon growing
more and moro marked betweon the two nations
" for nearly two roars. That there will bo re
prisals and still turther embittering Anglo-Gorman
relations' is almost a foregone conclusion,
and 11 Is Impossible to estlmato the ultimate
effects ot Lord Salisbury's action in this direc
tion. Germany Is already attempting to couplothe
notice ot tho abrogation ot tho treaty with Mr.
Goschen's announcement ot tbe laying down of
V tour new battleships. It is assumed in Berlin
L that tho British Government has deliberately
adopted an offensive policy against Germany,
and it is resented accordingly.
The chief practical effect ot cancelling the
treaty will be tho lapsing of the moat f avorod
nation clause In all tho agreement between the
two countries. Germany is thus at liberty to
engage In an open tariff war against Great
Britain if she chooses. The London press argues
that little will be done In this direction because
the consequences would bo worso to the Germans
than to the Englishmen. The newspapers ot
both parties are practically unanimous on this
point and also In approval ot tho denunciation of
the treaty. Unfriendly sentiments havo been
roost openly expressed In the German press re
cently, bnt now London is reciprocating with
Interest. "Our release from Germany" Is a
typical caption over the London comments to-dar.
It is interesting to note in all the comments
here the tacit acceptance ot the fact ot Great
Britain's political and threatened commercial
J isolation. Englishmen hare denied or blinked
the situation as long as possible, but now sud
denly admit that the Imperial consolidation
policy Is tho resort to which the country has
been forced by its abandonment of the old policy.
It is thus confessed in the St. James's Gazette:
" The denunciation of tho treaty is rather in
teresting as a species ot farewell to two genera
tions ot what we now know to have been
mistaken policy In obedience to sentiment mas
. quernding as common sense. We have tried to
make all our neighbors friendly. We hare
pressed our good offices upon them. We havo
tried, with tears in qur eyes, to convince them
that wo should be so much happier if we only
did more business. To keep them in good humor
, we have restrained our hands from what we
might perfectly well have taken, and have even
! hurried to make gratuitous promises not to ac
cept good things if they were offered to us. The
) end of it is that the much-courted foreigner is
A less In lovo with us than ever,
'fji "& "wonder, then, that wo hear,.undltnrbod,
y, of the denunciations ot the treaties. Sir Michael
k-jt , UIclcs Beach, with a way he has ot going to the
&ftp ' root of the matter, stated the prevailing opin
W Ion among us when he dismissed Mr. Courtney's
Ui" appeal to tho foreigner the other night as
r ' , absurd, since tho judge Is always sure to And us
. , guilty. But it Is a change when tho Chancellor
of the Exchequer can say theso things and
nobody disapproves except Mr. Courtney, who
has lived into wicked times when men are fall
i log away from virtue on all sides."
The chorus of approbation of tho Imperial
I Federation policy is, as I havo said, a unanimous
denial of an intention to form an Imperial Zoll
verein. Tho fact, however. Is rather amusing
that while the eulogies of Premier Lauder and
j loyal Canada are without stint, the Times to-
: day is most condescending In its announcement
of the consent of Great Britain to a sealing con
I ference in October. It is truly English in Its
observation that " the only obstacle to the suc-
, cess ot tho negotiations has been the despatch
of May 10, signed by Secretary Sherman, which
(J was Inspired, it is believed, by Mr. Foster.
ft, Tho United States have, however, so far
v ' modified their views as to be content
.- with a conference. Nothing beyond that has
j been proposed Dy tho American Ambassador.
) Apart from the tone of Mr. Sherman's despatch,
there nevor was any real difficulty In the mat
' ter, both Governments being desirous to protect,
as far as possible, a legitimate industry, and
differing only as to the facts and tbo methods to
bo pursued." It added: "It is thought that
I Russia and Japan may take part in the confer
ence." There could not possibly havo been a more de
v liberate and malignant misrepresentation of the
situation than this, Russia and Japan consented
promptly to send delegates. Great Britain vir
tually refused until Secretary Sherman's de
spatch, which the Times describes as an obsta
cle, really proved to be tho necessary rebuke
which won unwilling consent from Lord Salisbury.
She Kipect le Proilt by Baa-land's Sew Trade
Tonosxo, July 31. Canadians are much
elated over tbe fact that England will abrogate
her treaties with Belgium and Germany that
stand In tho way of the Canadian preferential
trade policy being operated to tbe advantage of
Great Britain. It Is felt here that the promul
gation of this policy will do something to offset
the disadvantages Canada will incur from tho
Dlngley tariff. The announcement of the de
nunciation of these treaties will have a most
important bearing on tbe tariff enacted by the
Dominion Parliament on April 22.
Hy the terms of that tariff a double schedule
of duties is offered by Canada, ono being 12'
sr rent, lower than the other, tho lower tariff
to be used In favor of countries admitting the
products of Canada on terms which, on tho
uncle, nri- as favorable to Canada as the terms
of tho reciprocal tariff.
At the end of ono year from tho date of the
nen tariff tho lo it scale of duties is to descend

Sptolat CabU Dtipati to Tits Sot.
LostDOK, July 31. Tho dlroctors of tho Siberian
Railroad are already figuring upon tho tlmo table
from London to Pekln, which will go Into effect
In July, 1001. The Journoy will occupy less than
fifteen days, as follows:
Tho train, four hours from London, will leavo
Ostond for Warsaw, dlstanco 1,002 kilometres,
and will roach the latter place In nineteen hours
at the rate of eighty kilometres, over forty-nine
mllos an hour. Tho dlstanco from Warsaw to
Batrakl, 8,210 kilometres, will bo accomplished
In34s hours, at tho rato of sixty-four kilom
etres an hour. Russian trains nro much slower
than thoso on the west European systems.
From Batrakl to Chclyblnsk, where the new
Siberian lino actually commences, tho dlstanco
is 1,127 kilometres, and it will be mado in
twenty-one hours at tho further reduced speed
of flfty-threo kilometres an hour. jFrom Chely
blnsk to Vlaillvostock tho dlstanco is 0,283
kilometres, and it will bo made at a mean speed
of forty-two kilometres, and will tako 221 hours.
Thus tho entire Journey ot 14,101 kilometres
will occupy 200 hours, or 13a days.
The present tlmo is thirty-eight days by tho
Suox Canal and twenty-eight days by tho Cana
dian Poclllo Railroad. If tho eighty-kilometre
speed on tho Ostcnd-Warsaw section could be
maintained throughout the journoy it might be
accomplished In seven and one-half days.
Making every allowanco for ths difficulties of
high speed across tho Siberian stoppes, there Is
a largo margin for improvement on tho esti
mated forty-two kllomotres or twonty-alx miles
an hour from Chelyblnsk to Vladlvostock. From
tho latter city Pekln will be reached by the
Manchurlan rood.

London, July 31. Despatches received here
from varions continental news centres confirm
tho reports of tho appalling oxtont of tho floods
in Prussian Silesia, and tho consequent Urge
loss of life and almost Incalculable destruction
of property. Ilundreds of persons havo been

Despatches from Vienna report the drowning

erty as beyond estimate.
Advices from Berlin say that the floods in
Prussian Silesia are widespread and disastrous.
The pecuniary damage ia already estimated at
millions of marks, and tbo overflowing waters
are still spreading. No flood ot such magnitude
has occurred in that region within tho contury.

was accused of causing rapid wear of the rifling,
and this charge must hare had some founda

in the weapons now issued, and has beon re
placed by tho system dovised by Rlgby, which
Is said to wear well and give moro accurate
shooting than the Mannllcher, Mauser, or Lebel
Certainly the wear cannot now be a very
serious matter it the reports can be relied on
that accurate shooting has been mods even
after firing some thousands of rounds and the
weapon is still serviceable after 8,000 or 0,000
rounds hare been fired.

Col. Goorgo Moore Bmlth, commander of the
Sixty-ninth Regiment, Is tho man whom Mayor
Strong has selected to succeed Col. Grunt in the
Poltco Board, and his appolntmout la duo to tho
Mayor's son, Putnam Bradlco Strong, who Is on
the non-commlsslonod staff of tbe regiment.
Col. Smith has accopted the office, and ho will
take his place in tho Police Board to-monow.
Speaking of the appointment yesterday Mayor
Strong said:
"I first wantod to appoint CoU Smith to the
Pollco Board two years ago last spring, but he
was unable to arrango his business affairs so
that ho could tako the plnco. Whon I hod the
appointment ot Mr. Roosevelt's successor under
consideration I thought ot Col. Smith again, and
again ho was unable to accept. During our stay
at Richfield Springs this summer Co). Smith
was tho guest for two weeks ot my son Bradlcc.
Then camo the talk about Col. Grant resigning,
and I talked to Col. Smith about the place. Col.
Smith called on mo yestordny. He was hero
about five mlnutos. I asked lilin If ho would
take Cob Grant's place. Ho said he would, but
wanted to talk about tbe matter to his wife be
fore the appointment was made public."
Mayor Strong said tbat Col. Smith was a
stanch Republican, rather moro Piatt than anti
Watt. With which faction ot the Police Board
Co). Smith would side tho Mayor said he could
not tell. Col. Smith was not In the city yester
day. Ho la one of tho best known National
Guardsmen In tho city. For nearly twenty
years he was an officer in the Seventh Regi
ment, He resigned from that regiment to tako
charge of tho Sixty-ninth when It was threat
ened with dissolution, and he succeeded in
building It up to its present high standard. He
Is a lumber merchant and ho lives at 1182 Mad
ison avenue. Ho is a member of tho New York
Athletio Club, the Building Trades Club, tho
Quill Club, and the Presbyterian Club.
Col. Grant shook bands all around and left
Police Headquarters yesterday an hour after
word had come that Col. Smith had been ap
pointed to succoed him. Col. Grant Is not com
ing back. He had his private papers removed
and announced that he shook the dustot Mui
bery street from bis feet for good.
" It is tho best thing I havo done since I cam
here." he said. "I wish I bad done it in the first
week. Good-oy."
The laat echo of tho brief ruction ths Colonel
raised was heard In thofollowlng that emanated
In typewritten farm from President Moss's office
as Col. Grant went away:
"There Is a general misunderstanding about
the women to whom policemen hare paid monoy.
They are not arrested. Tbe proprietors of tho
houses of assignation to which tbo women take
the officers are the ones that are arrested. These
proprietors trequentl are men. Tho crime
charged is keeping a disorderly house. The
knowledge ot the proprietors of the character
ot tbe women who bring men to their houses Is
a necessary element In tho case. When women
of tho street solicit policemen, chanro them a
price and take them to these houses and tho
proprietors assign them to rooms, then there Is
proof on which tho proprietors can be arrested.
The Commissioners nave never justified officers
in paying women and then arresting them, and
I bavo never heard of such an arrest."
Of the newcomer there was nothing but hearty
praise in Mulberry street. Police Headquarters
has long been downtown headquarters for tho
Seventh Regiment, Uenb-Col. lupp ia the de
partment's chief clerk. Everybody spoko ot
Cot. Smith in the highest terms. Commissioner
Andrews, who has known him for years, said:
"He Is personally amost amiable man, a fine
soldier, a good disciplinarian, a successful busi
ness man, and a man of abundant bard common
sense. Ho will bo the senior of us nil by several
years. The department is to be greatly felici
tated upon Mayor Strong's choice.
Col. Hmlth Is expected In Mulbsrry street on
Monday. CoL Orant will not be there to receive
him, but his office Is ready for him.
The stories of Chief Conlln's retirement wcro
revived yesterday. They havo been current
every time a change or an emergency was on
foot. Chief Conltn has a habit of talking about
getting out nt sueb times. But this time those
who havo watched affairs believe that it is
likely to prove more than gossip. Mr. Conlln Is
a prudent man, and there are strong incentives
in sight to tempt him to get out. His battle
with Commissioner Andrews was fought
to a standstill by tbo refusal of Commis
sioners Parker and Grant to let charges
of Insubordination be made against tho
Chief, but the charges are still there; and now
the Chief has added President Moss to his ene
mies by betraying him Into tbe bands of Parker.
The latter said at tbo last board meeting that
tho Chief, while he was ostensibly catering to
Mr. Moss, was running to him, Parker, and CoL
Grant complaining ot Moss. With tbls new dis
ciplinarian coining Into tho board, it Is conceiv
able tbat Mr. Conlln may at last wish to compro
mise on a 83,000 pension for life, especially as
there are stories afloat to tbe effect that Mr.
Moss is preparing to accept Mr. Parker's chal
lenge and display tho sworn evidence he holds of
corruption Involving Captains and "somebody
else" in the department. The Thief's vacation
ends on Thursday, but he will be borne before
that. The board meets on Wednesday.

I'jTTsnuno, Pa,, July 31. William Curomlngs
was shot and instantly killed nt Scottdale to
night in a not betwocn union and non-union
men employed hy tho Hcottdalo Iron and Steel
Company. Curomlngs and four other non-union
workmen visited the saloons and drnnk frooly.
At tho Commercial Hotel a crow-d had gathered.
The non-union workmen wcro Insulted, and
Cummtngs began shooting. Tho crowd fired
back, and Cummtngs was hit above the right
tomple. His friends retreated to tho mill, which
was guarded by deputy ahorlffs. No ono seems
to know tho person who flrod tbo fatal shot.
Tho trouble is about the running of the Scott
dale Steel Works with non-union men. The
Sheriff and 50 additional deputies havo been
ordered to Scottdale from Groeusburg,
Two hundred non-union mon, who wore import

and, guarded by them, tho non-union mon slept
In the pattern shop over night, and had thoir
meals carried to them this morning.
Tho company last night applied to Burgess
Porter ot Bcottdaio for protection. Tho Burgess
swore In special officers and undertook to pro

surrounded the works and rendered his efforts
futile. Oconto llltt, ono of thn men lmprUuned

dispersing the crowds at 1 o'clock this morning.
O'Keefb Was One or a Crowd Trjlng to Ileocuo
a Prisoner.
Policeman Thomas II. Dovino of the East
104th street station was attacked b) a mob last
night while he was taking a prisoner to tho sta
tion house, and in defending himself he shot
one of the mob dead.
For two weeks Dovino has had tho post in
103d street eastot Second avenue. During that
time, his fellows say, he has become very un
popular with the young men who live in tho
street. On a number of occasions when be has
mado arrests he bos been attacked by a crowd
of men and beys' who hampered htm in tbe per
formal ,tu of hit dulyllo has always managed,
however, to land bla prisoner safely in the station
houso without resorting to harsh measures.
Last night about 11:30 o'clock, while Devine
was passing 313 East 103d street, he found
James L nch, one of the tenants, on the side
walk, drunk. Lynch, Dovino says, was cursing,
using foul language and Insulting persons who
passed, daring them to tlciit him.
Devine told Lynch tn buhate himself and go
into the house. Lynch turned on tbe policeman
and cursed him, Devine warned him again to
go home and finally arrowed him.
He started to walk nith his prisoner from tho
housed which Is half way between First and
Heconfl avenues, to the police station, which Is
juct est ot Third avenue, in 104th street.
TBslsltorcatlon between the policeman and
the'ilru'rlken man had attracted the attention of
uiojly-.ofthe people, men and women, who were
sitting on tbe stoops of tho houses. It became
known in a moment that Devine had a pris
oner, and from all the saloons In the street
camo men and boys, ready to bait the officer.
Before he had reached Second arenue with his
prisoner a crowd, aald to have numbered fifty
men, bod gathered. It surrounded tho police

BnmaKi'OKT, Conn., July 31. Fred Buxton,
tho man who has defied tho authorities ot the
town of Easton nnd deputy shortffs ot Fnlrflold
for mora thnn a week, has been arrestod. Ho was
at hay In ono of tho small rooms of his houso,
crouched In tho dark In the comer, with
bis ready double-barrelled shotgun cocked
and ready to fire for two hours to-night. In tho
larger room, out ot which tho small ono opens,
four deputy sheriffs with repeating rifles
watched him as a cat would a mouse. Ho was
completely at their morcy, but they did not
want to kill htm, and wore determined to tnko
Buxton was as defiant as cvor. From tho cor
ner of the dark room his reply to tho order of
the sheriffs to surrender was:
" I'll never surrender; I'll dto first. I'll havo
the satisfaction of knowing that ono of you will
die before I'm taken."
The officers decided to wait, and. If possi
ble, tiro him out and force him to glvo up. At
0 o'clock to-night Doputy Sheriffs Buckley,
Doolan, and Plumb, and Jailer Stoelo ot tho
countr Jnll and "Billy" Doolan, son of Sheriff
Doolan, left this olty for Easton. High
Sheriff Hawloy, after fully considering the mat
ter, decided that ho replevin writ issued lo se
cure tho possession of Miss Ogdon's colts, w htch
Buxton Is holding on a claim for damago dono
to his crous, must be served, and detailed four
deputies to undertake tbo work. A criminal
warrant ror Buxton's arrest wus also handed to
them. It charged Buxton with resisting and
obstructing Constnhlo Henry Osborn of Easton,
who last week undertook to get the colts, but
was driven nway from tho premises by Buxton
at thu muzzle ot a double-barrelled shotgun.
Tho drlvo from this city to Buxton's houso is
about ten miles, and It was dark when tho two
teams containing tho officers stoppod near Bux
ton's house. Before tho Sheriffs arrived there
they hod decided upon their plan of nction. They
know Iho location of every dojr In tho house. An
attack was to be mado on the front and back door
at tho snroo time and thus take Buxton una
wares and gain admittance to tho houso. Cau
tiously tho officers approached tho house. It
was very dark, and tho woods on both sides of
tho roadway made It impossible to seo a horse's
length ahead. There was no sign of a light in
tho house.
Tho bulldog chained in tho barn began to
bark, and, fearful that It would nlnrm Buxton,
tho officers Jumped from tho carriages und
dashed through tho narrow yard to tho house.
Plumb, Buckloy. and Billy Doolan nttackod tho
front door, whllo Deputy Sheriff Doolan and
Steele went to tho sldo door, which
opens luto the kitchen. Tho front door
was burst open and tho officers went In. Thoy
expected to find Buxton awaiting them, but no
resistance being ottered thoy hurried into the
next room, tho kitchen.' Just as they enteral
Deputy Sheriff Doolan had succeeded in break
ing tho back door.
At that moment tho sharp reriort ot a riflo
sounded. It was "Billy " Doolan who had OreJ.
Tho bullet whlstcd past the bead ot Sheriff
"Dqn'tehoot.Bt.opthat. It's mo," callod out
. "Is -that y'ou. Popl" replied Billy. "I
thought it was Buxton coming."
Buxton did come a minute later. Tho crash of
tho breaking doors and report of tho rifle had
nrousod lilm from his sleep on tho second floor,
and down tho rickety stairs ho came, cursing at
every step nnd demanding lo know what was
wanted. No light had been lit, and the officers
and tho man tbey wanted were there togotber
In the darknem. Every moment tho officers ex
pected that Buxton would lire.
After some time a match w as struck. Burton
Wus nowhere to be seen, und It was thought ho
had escaped through the door. Thon a lantern
which the officers bad with them was
lighted, and In tho corner of a small room
opening out or thu kltclion Buxton
was seen cmuchlnir in the darkness wltb the
shotgun in his hand. Ho w ns called upon to sur
render and told that thoro was a criminal war
rant for him In tho ivosesslou ot tho officers.
His reply was:
" I'll never surrender; I'll dlo first. Before
I m taken I will havo the satisfaction of killing
one of rou.
The deputies, rach armed with a Winchester
rifle, covered Buxton, and Hhoriff Plumb said:
" Buxton, If you attempt to ralso that gun we
will Are."
The reply to tbat was a string of oaths. A
conference betweon tho officers followed, and It
was decided to hold Buxton and bay and starve
blm out.
The deputy sheriffs arrived In this city Just
before midnight with Buxton, nnd ho Is
locked up at Police Headquarters. After
holding the officers at hay for two hours
the opportunity arrived. When Buxton's
xlgllance was relaxed for a moment
"Billy" Doolan mado a dash in the small room
and grabbed the gun. Then Iho officers rushed

who would order out Htnto troops to defend a
