PRICE TWO CENTS. TREATY TO BEABANDONED Decision Formed by Friends of Reciprocity. ONE WITH ARGENTINA It Has Been the "Jonah" of These Treaties All Along. PROTECTION OF THE PRESIDENT Glanoe at Contemplated Conffrea •lonal Action tpon Thla Subject. J"ron% Th» Journal Bureau. K«oi» AS, Tom Building, Wtunington. _'■.'. Washington, Oct. 26. — has been decid ed by the friends of the reciprocity trea ties. in the final battle for their ratifica tion, which will Boon open, to abandon the Argentine treaty. This will obviously not be done formally, for that would be dis courteous to the Argentine government, which has renewed the time at our dis posal for the treaty's consideration, but the "tip" has quietly been given to let that compact drop, and, with it out of the way, to see what can be done with the others. The reason for this move is plain. The Argentine treaty has been the 'Jonah" of the .group. It attacked wool, appro priately termed the "keystone of the pro tective arch," and while the remissions it offered were but slight and would still leave a very handsome protection, the wool growers are so strongly entrenched politically that they do not need to make any concesg'ous whatever and will not do so. The tr«».ty, because of this effect on wool, has been more widely discussed a.nd its terms have become better known than any other, and hence it has served to dis credit the whole group with those who "feel the sorrows" of the wool grower. It is believed that but for it half the oppo sition which the new reciprocity move ment has aroused would have been aver ted. It is now hoped to recover the lost ground; the senate will be asked in secret session to weigh the other treaties as a group and see if they are not worth adopt ing, but to pay no further attention to this one. Besides wool, it lowers the duty on hides from 15 per cent ad valorem to 12 per cent, a change of course distasteful to the four great beef-packing concerns of Chicago, which are enjoying, under the present law, for the first time in years, a tariff on an important by-product. GUARDING In many parts of the UniUt States, including THE many square miles of ter ritory, the President of PRESIDENT, the United States mlgbt be struck, beaten, and even shot, and if he did not die of his wound, the person committing the assault could not be punished. There would be no law, either of the state or the national government, for his punishment. If President McKinley had survived hiu wound, and if the shooting had ocourred in the Buffalo postofflce, or on any of the land owned by the federal govern ment, Czolgosz would have had to go un punished. Under the constitution, the federal government has exclusive jurisdic tion over the lands which it owns; the state laws do not apply. But by some strange oversight, no federal laws have been made covering assaults committed in this jurisdiction. Consequently, there is a sort of "no man's land" where of fenses against the peace and security of the person are unpunishable. To correct this anomalous condition, congress will be asked this winter to en act a law which has been drafted by the commission which is at work codifying the federal statutes. It is a paragraph of the federal criminal code which has now been completed and submitted In the form of a report to the department of justice. This new section extends the government's jurisdiction over crime to forts, arsenals, docks and wharves owned by the govern ment, to sites of postoffices, custom houses and other public buildings owned by the United States, to the mile limit shore line, to the great lakes and aboard American vessels, wherever they may be. In order to provide a larger measure of security for the life and person of the President of the United States, the code commission has drafted a law which will be presented to congress in the form of a separate bill. It makes it a felony to threaten the life or person of the presi dent, adding a penalty of $5,000 for that offense; and an assault upon the person of the president is made punishable by death. But in both Instances the assault or threat must be committed on account of the- doing or failure to do something connected with his duties as president. Much difficulty was experienced in deal ing -with the subject of a law to protect the president. In order to bring the of fense within the constitutional authority of the federal government, the crime must be more than a crime against the person. In the eye of the law, the president is not different from any other man. An assault on him is no greater offense, as the law now stands, than an assault on the humblest citizen in the country. More over, the constitution gives the states the power to punish crimes within their re spective jurisdictions. And in spite of any law which congress may pass, the state will still have the jurisdiction to punish assaults upon the president in his private capacity. If the motive for the crime is in no way connected with the president's official functions, the federal government cannot step in between the state and the accused. No effort has been made to bring such assault under the head of treason. The latter crime is well defined. The death penalty Is imposed regardless of the re sults of the assault; it is not necessary that the president be killed. Under the other section of the proposed act will come written or spoken threats against the life or person of the president, always providing that the incentive for the threat is dissatisfaction with the president's of ficial acts or policies. Another para graph of the law which will be recom mended to congress will include acces sories before the fact. The commission has experienced much difficulty in the task of framing legislation aimed directly at anarchy. Any move in this direction trenches so quickly on the freedom of speech and is so filled with the dangers of abuse that they are inclined to move with great caution. They have found that, in defining the crime, it is difficult to draw the line between the criminal intent and the honest intent which alms at the reversal of some ex isting policies or the overthrow of some individual or individuals in office, with a •lncera view to the ultimate welfare of the country.

CROWNINSHIELD'S OUT His Successor in the Navigation Bureau Soon to Be Named. MAY BE FURTHER HUMILIATED Fall Story of How Roowevelt and Crowiiinahleld Were Appointed to Navy Department. Washington, Oct. 26.—Secretary Long of the navy confirms the report that Ad miral Crowninshleld will be relieved of his position as chief of the bureau of navigation. The new and interesting de velopiTient to-^lay is the fact that a fight has started to prevent the assignment of Crowninshield to the command of the European station, which is one of the most coveted places In the navy. Crowninshield has lost his fight with Schley, and now the victors are deter- | mined that his humiliation be made com- I plete. Senator Platt of New York has: always been the nower behind Crownin- j shield, and he is now standing by him. ' Platt secured Crowninshield's assign ment to the bureau by promising not to oppose Roosevelt, who had been ap- ; pointed assistant secretary of the navy on | the recommendation of Tom Reed and others. o o : Secretary Long is doing the best : : he can to cover the retreat of the : : anti-Schley crowd, but it is ad- : : mitted that they are on the run. : o o Unless Platt prevents, Crowninshield will be given some less pleasant duty than attending the coronation of King Edward. It lit Retribution. The promised removal of Crowninshield is generally regarded as the crowning fruit of the Schley investigation. Schley is coming out on top, and it becomes necessary to get rid of a department head who was responsible for stirring up the trouble. This is the way In which Crown inshield's removal Is generally regarded here. Naturally the Schley people are wildly exaggerating the affair and striving in every way to belittle and besmirch Crowninshield. which no doubt explains why I am able to give to-day an authori tative statement of the Crowninshield ap pointment and Roosevelt's relations to the navy department as assistant secretary. Friends of Schley know that the depart j ment is on the run, and are determined that Crowninshield shall not get away without being scotched. The feeling agaln3t him here is running very high to | day. How They Were Appointed. On the highest authority The Jour nal Is able to-day to give a full story covering the appointment of Roosevelt and Crownlshield to places in the navy department at the beginning of McKin ley's first term. The day that Long for mally agreed to accept the navy portfolio he received a long letter from Thomas B. Reed, full of humor but very earnest, in his expression of a desire that Roosevelt be appointed assistant secretary. This was one of several recommendations of similar character. When Long saw Mc- Kinley in Washington they discussed j Roosevelt and decided that he should be asked to take the office. They also considered the forthcoming vacancy In the bureau of navigation. Mc- Kinley requested Long to take full charge and appoint some good man, and the place was accordingly offered to three men in succession, each of whom declined it. Taylor, who is now to take it, did not then want it, because it would cut him out of sea duty. Sampson also preferred to go to sea, chiefly because of ill health. Meanwhile all sorts of recommendations came from senators, congressmen and others in behalf of captains who wanted the position. On the declination of Se card Secretary Long discussed with him a list of available men and Sicard recom mended three as being qualified, placing Crowinshield at the head of the list. Recommendations for Crowinshield came also from prominent politicians, among the Senator Platt of New York, but there ! never was any suggestion to Long that Crowinshield's selection was necessary in order to render palatable to the New York machine the appointment of Roosevelt. It is possible, of course, that Platt, who was then feeling in not too pleasant a frame of mind towards Roosevelt, may have been Influenced to make a fight against him in the state by fear that somebody would retaliate by fighting Crowinshield. This, however, is only conjecture. Roosevelt-Crownlnnhleld Difference* Roosevelt and Crowninshleld worked; harmoniously in the department. Differ- j ences of opinion arose between them oc- ■ casionally on matters of policy, but these j always arise between men heading re- j sponsible departments. It has been said that Crownlnshield and Roosevelt quar reled over the bringing of the Oregon around the horn, but this was one point on which Long, Roosevelt and Crownln shield were agreed. Crowningshield has long wanted to go to sea, especially since he will become rear admiral in regular order next March. President McKinley had decided to gratify this wish, and President Roosevelt, as the I occasion arises, is merely carrying out his predecessor's plans. Neither president has had any desire "to get rid of Crowninshield." —W. W. Jermane.

THIS DELAY ANNOYS The Cruiser Dcs Moines Cannot Be Christened This Year. NO BRONZE BOLTS TO BE HAD Event Will Thtus Go Over Into a. New Administration and Add More Complications. Special to The Journal. Dcs Moines, lowa, Oct. 26. —The date ot the christening of the new sheathed cruiser "Dcs Moines," which was orig'n ally fixed for Thanksgiving Day, has been postponed until after the first of the year because of a queer and peculiar situation. When the builders came to sheathe the cruiser with copper over the wood they found that the 28,000 bronze bolts ordered to hold the copper to the wood and running through the wood to the steel plates un dernearth, had not arrived and the manu facturers were unable to get them out on time because of a scarcity of material. Iron bolts w'll not fill the bill because of the galvanic action of the copper which transmits to the steel a corrosive ele ment. The Dcs Moines party which will attend the christening at the Quincy, Mass., ship yards has not yet been made up. Gov ernor Shaw named Miss Frances West as sponsor for the cruiser and the gov ernor and staff Intended to be present at the exercises. The delay puts the event over into a new admin'stration, for the reason that Governor Shaw's term of office expires on the first Monday in January. Another marring incident has also transpired in connection with the christ ening. Mayor Hartenbower is miffed be cause he was not selected to name the sponsor, rather than the governor. He insists that this right has always accrued to the mayor of the city where a cruiser or ship was named after a city or town instead of after a state. He accordingly will take no part in the ceremonies, and the city of Dcs Moines will have no direct representatives present at the launching. Miss Frances West will not only christ en the cruiser by breaking a bottle of champagne over the bow, but with her own hand will set the ship in motion, cut ting a small cord with a silver hatchet in order to accomplish this purpose. The parting cord releases weights which in turn remove the "dog shores" that hold the cradle until the last moment. The bot tle of wine will be enclosed In a silver netting, and both the hatchet and the bot tle holder will be suitably engraved by the builders, the Fore River Ship and En gine company of Quincy, Mass., and pre sented to Miss West as souvenirs of the occasion.

Minnesota | lowa | Northrop Field, Oct. 266. —A perfect au tumn day was dealt the gopher and hawk eye collegians for their football game on Northrop field this afternoon. The field itself was In ideal condition. There was a mild breeze from the north west, which intermittently blew in stiff gusts, making goals a questionable quan tity. There was a large crowd—some 5,000 people In the grind stand and bleachers when the game was called —but they had been slow in arriving, there being no such jam as at the Nebraska gam«. The megaphone brigade occupied its ac customed place on the bleacher side. The training of the past two weeks had put the rooters in excellent condition and there was more decorum in yelling,than hereto fore. The hawkeyes were not numerous, but were enthusiastic and vociferous in their rooting. Phil Allen, Chicago; C. R. Rinehart, formerly of the Lafayette team, are offi cials.

The $5 rate from lowa City thinned out the crowd of rooters expected from the university town on the regular St. Ix>uia train this morning. Where at least a thousand more rooters from the Hawkeye state had been confidently counted on, that total scarcely exceeded 400. With few exceptions, they were from lowa City, having left for Minneapolis at 9 o'clock last night. There wag room to spare in the seven coaches and two sleepers. Only a few Minnesota and lowa, men, who had already arrived, were at the depot to meet the rooting recruits, and there was no demonstration over their arrival. Not a college yell was heard. The lowana didn't appear particularly jubilant over the outlook; Instead, with scarcely an exception, they wore an anxious look which aeemed to Indicate that they were doubtful as to the out come. The S. U. I. band was mixed up in the crowd, but denied repeated requests to "limber up." "We're using lowa wind to-day," ex plained a cornetist, "and we're saving it for the game. We don't know how thlg Minnesota air will work on our horns." Co-Ed Gum (hewer*. Most conspicuous in the delegation wer» "Hunch" McCutcheon, the famous clair voyant manager of the lowa team, and a smart young man representing a certain brand of chewing gum, said to be very popular among the lowa co-eds. This en terprising individual had supplied the only lowa college colors visible in the contin gent. . • Yellow—not "old gold"—ribbons flut tered from every coat lapel, but where one expected to see the college yell, he ran up against an earnest objurgation to chew several varieties of jaw exercisers. At the top of the ribbon was the word "Don't," immediately beneath which wai suspended a small metal monkey, the rest of the inscription being: "with me for I am from lowa and chew 's gum." Other rooters were placarded with cards suspended from buttons, which announced that they had lots of nerve because of their constant application to the gum. Met uCcliciin Brought Hla "Hunch." Manager McCutcheou was asked If he had his now famous li"nch on his person or If it was in the "baggage coach ahead." He replied that it was a portable device and that by careful folding he found no difficulty in tucking it snugly away in his innermost vest pocket. "Is it in good working order to-day?" ha was asked, as his compatriots, who have staked all on the "hunch," 'hung breath less on his words. "Yes, sir; it's all right; couldn't be Im proved upon." "Then you regard it as absolutely in fallible and a certain augury of victory for your team at Northrop field?" "Beyond the shadow of a doubt. I have seen the handwriting on the wall. You se« the present hunch is not without prece dent; the patent has been applied for so to speak. This is the third year that a still, small voice, in my waking hours or the stilly night, has told me what the outcome would be not ajone on the eve of a football battle, but even while we ware preparing for the campaign. I had the same identical hunch before the opening game of the season last year when the spirit moved me and told me that no one would cross our goal line that year. You see, I had my original dream at the West Hotel, in Minneapolis, and I understand I couldn't have selected a better place. They tell me that one of your most prom inent lawyers once got religion while sleeping at the West. He had a vision, and has been engaged in evangelical work ever since. Now I find that the con ditions are just right for the hunch to demonstrate itself to-day and it is not betraying confidence to say that I re ceived certain occult communications while in the sleeper this morning which, left no room for conjecture as to which college pennant will flutter highest when the tale is told this afternoon. I want to say to all the real game sports In this town —all questions of college pride aside— they will be very wise if they take my tip and bet on lowa. That's, the way to place your money if you want to speculate. Bet on lowa at any odds; you can't lose." McCutcheon declined to express aa opinion as to the relative merits of Min nesota's protest on Captain Williams of the lowa team. "I don't believe there's anything in It, but it's none of my business," he ex plained; "let the professors fight it out." McCutcheon thinks that the counter at traction of the Chicago-Pennsylvania game at Chicago to-day is responsible to some extent for the comparatively light attendance from lowa at the Minneapolis game. He explained that the Chicago roads had made a special rate from lowa points to Chicago, and expressed the be lief that hundreds of rooters who would otherwise have come to this city had gone to Chicago to see the battle between the east and the west. It hardly speaks well for the college spirit in lowa that any kind of a gam* in Chicago could prove a greater attrac tion than a struggle in which the lowa team is a principal.
