President McKinley, in his inaugu ral address-, called upon the senate-to res urrect these commercial agreements. Rep resentations have been made by the score predicting calamitous' trade warfare --.If ; the senate ■adjourns without acting upon the treaties. Protests are especially* ve hement from manufacturers and export ers in the middle west. Five Senators. • Five republican members of the senate are responsible for the blockade against ! reciprocity legislation. They are Platt of Connecticut, Platt of New York, Lodge ! of Massachusetts, Proctor of Vermont and | Aldrich of Rhode Island. They represent knit goods: manufacturers, cheap jewelry producers and other interests now waxing prosperous under the high protective tar < iff. QKipCPpI Under.the provisions of .the Dingley.laW this government invited Russia, Germany, Prance, Great Britain, South American le publics and every country with which trade is conducted, to arrange a tariff, ta ble based upon the principle of reciprocity. I Commissioner Kasson negotiated treaties ; with all these governments and placed ] them before the senate. The foreign gov ! ernments entered into these conventions j in good faith and with the conviction that the senate would ratify the treaties. But I this body not only failed to act, but i adopted a contemptuous position of utter indifference, which has aroused resent : ment among the foreign envoys here. I ' SuKtir Merely a Pretext. ! It is stated that the failure of the re j ciprocity arrangements with Russia re ! cently really was responsible for the i adoption of the Russian retaliatory tariff, j rather than the imposition of the counter i vailing duty on sugar by Secretary Gage, j which merely served as a pretext. ! State department officials are consider | ably agitated by the threats of action by ', France, Germany and Great Britain. The I French ambassador here makes no secret '■ of the fact that the French chamber of I deputies proposes to change from a mmii i mum to a maximum tariff toward this I country, while the German - program *of ! prohibition against grains, meats and oth i er American imports is already well de : fined. Owing to the vigilance of the state de i partment, an effort, partly successful, has ] been made by which the French treaty is I given another lease of life for reaffirms lion at the next session. But the re maining treaties, including those with \ Great Britain, Italy, Germany, Barbadoes, i Bermuda, Trinidad and Guiana and South American countries, will expire with this session. \\ :i »li iusi'tfin \otes.

TARBELL TAKES HIS TIME Second Census Movement at Winona May Fail. Special to The Journal. Winona. Minn., March" 9. —The delay of Mayor Tarbell in signing the resolution providing for taking a special census will militate strongly against such a move ment. The mayor has live days in which he can keep a resolution before returning it to the council, and this will so shorten the time in which the census can be taken that it is doubtful if it could be done in time to have it, effect the legislation sought, particularly if the senate date for early adjournment is concurred in by the house. The object of taking the census is to es tablish the claim of Winoua to rank in the class of cities between 20,000 and 50,000, instead of in the class between 10,000 and 20,000. along with Mankato and Stillwater. There wil probably be votes enough in the council to pass the resolution over the veto of the mayor, should he take this action, but there is a feeling that the five days' delay will be fatal.

THE GRAND JURY INVESTIGATES How Ignorant Negroes in South /•■■/■•• Carolina Are Held in Bondage. Charleston. S. C. * March 9.—Acting Under orders from Circuit Judge Bennet, the grand jury of Anderson county is making a searching investigation of the ctmvict lease' system by winch negroes are held as'slaves. A special term of court has been called for March 7. when it is expected, that a state scandal will come to light -with the presentment of the jury. Fearing the wrath of the court and pub lic indignation, the stockade managers have released twenty-one, negroes who | -were held as slaves, and others will be freed before the court has finished with ; the scandal. V.,J': ;■;, The statement was made in Anderson this week that several negroes had been liberated, but according to private ad vices received in Charleston to-day, the total number set free was twenty-one. In this list were included three or four old negroes, who served as slaves before" the proclamation of President Lincoln spread freedom to the black race. Not much has been said in this state about the libera tion of the negroes. It is known that this .fact will be divulged when the special court is held, but so many persons of prominence are said to be implicated that there is a general desire to let the affair work itself out to a natural end. In his charge to the jury Judge Bennet Baid that the stockade system had to be investigated. Under an old system con victs from the state penitentiary are leased to individuals for farm and railroad work, and barracks are built where the prisoners are confined. The men who hired the prisoners went a step further, however, and, under a special form of contract, forced negroes to give up their liberty for a certain term of years and enter" the stockades, where they were guarded and informed that they would be shot if any attempt was made to escape. The Anderson system was notorious. It was by the mer<vst accident that the true condition of affairs was discovered.^ The disclosure made when W. S. Newell was placed on trial last week in Ander son for murder. Newell managed one of these farms, and a negro, Bill Hull, was captured and sent to the stocks. The negro was sent before a magistrate, who gave him a sentence, and Newell was deputized as a special officer to take the man to prison. Instead of being carried to jail.

Judge Bennet called attention to the fact that Hull had been taken from his family under pretext of arrest. The machinery of the law was used to seize him, and he was sent to the pen and treated as a con vict. "The manner of his death." said the court, "would seem to indicate that he was shot as a felon might be shot in en deavoring to escape the sentence of the law." Hull was charged with having violated a Newell contract, hence his arrest and sen tence. The Hull case is an example. Con tracts made out in regular form have been used to bind negroes to the services of white farmers. The laborer agrees to per form general farmwork under the super vision of the employer or his agents for a stated sum and length of time, and the laborer further agrees at all times to be subject to the orders and commands of the employer, who "shall have the right to use such force as he or his agents deem necessary to reouire me to remain on the farm," and "shall have the right to lock me up for safe keeping, and if I should leave his farm or run away he shall have the right to offer a reward for my cap ture." The reward for capture is to be deducted from the wages due the laborer. The contract also gives the employer "the right to transfer his interest in this con tract to any other party," thus enabling the employer to virtually sell the laborer to another. This system is in general use in Anderson, and some of the wealthiest men in the county are believed to be work ing negroes under these contracts. When the grand jury was ordered to be gin its investigation the stockade manag ers are said to have reasoned together, and as a result the twenty-one negroes were freed. Old men, who were slaves be fore the war, were caught by the myster ious contracts, sent to the stockades and placed in cells with convicts, where they suffered indignities and were warned that death would follow any attempt to escape or communicate with friends at home. In open court Judge Bennet charged that women and babies had been shockingly treated by the convict managers, and the conditions, he declared, were more horrible than the -stories told of the prisoners in Siberia. An old slave who was imprisoned in the Anderson stockade got word to his former master of his condition and asked for help. He was released yesterday, it is said, but he might not have gained his freedom had no notice been taken of the outrages by the court. The old man went back to his master with tears trickling down his cheeks, and expressed the most heartfelt gratitude for the service ren dered. At its best the convict lease system is nothing more than slavery. It is asserted for the law that it works well in the case of regular convicts sent down by the courts, but the privilege has been abused, and unlawful steps have been takeu to send negroes to the pen on faked charges. The negroes are ignorant and poor and un able to help themselves. Shrouded under the convict lease system the slavery has flourished and the negroes have been kept in prison for months and mouths while they tilled the soil for these twentieth century slave dealers. The story of the Anderson outrage has stirred the public; indignation as nothing has done for years. The unfortunate fea ture is the truth behind the charges, and Judge Bennet has declared that, the matter shall be sifted regardless of consequences and regardless of the men who will suffer. It is common report in this state that pub lic officers and men high in authority will be involved in the scandal. sports" WILMOT AFTER A FRANCHISE May Break Into the Western League With a Louisville Team.
