OUTLOOK MORE HOPEFUL
MRS. MeK NLEY CONTINFS TO SHOW
Physicians Did Not Hold a Long Con
sultation This Morning-A
After the usual morning consultaton as
to Mrs. McKinley's condition the following
bulletin was made public b~y Secretary Cor
'Mrs. McKinley's physicians report that
she passed a comfortable night and con
tinues to show slight improvement.''
The consultation was not a long one. and
the impression left by the physicians was a
favorahle one. The President was with
Mrs. Xlveinlt-y a part of the morning and
the improvement referred to was noticed by
him. lIe spoke to a few friends in a more
hopeful way than usual and they gathered
fron this; that the President has strong
hopes that Mrs. Mclinley will not be over
taken bv any more sinking se1ll or returns
of the t roulibe that has threattened her life.
The outlok. vi.w#l by everybody at the
Whit. Ilouse. is far more hopeful than it
has lo- n at any tieio since the return of
Mrs. Mc-inl-y from the Paciflc Coast.
PROLiE1I AWAITING SOLUTION.
The Arbitration )iseunnion lefore
A number of the South Central American
representatives, including the Chil-an. Pe
ruvian. Salvadkorean anzd Nicaraguan min
isters. were at the State Dipartment today,
and manifested much intcrest in the issue
relative to the discussion of arbitration be
fore the coming congress of American re
publics, to be held in Mexico. It was stated
by officials that no material development
had occurrcd of late. the issue still being
that Chile is unwilling to attend the con
gress unless arbitration Is restricted to
future questions, while Peru has rtated
officially that she will not attend unless the
discussion of arbitration is allowed to pro
ceed on the broadest lines. It was also
stated today that Argenting, l'ruguay.
Paraguay and Brazil had made known their
purpose to withhold representation from
the congress unless the debate on arbitra
tion proceeded on broad lines. With the
subject thus complicated, the southe-rn rep
resentatives are hopeful that Secretary
Hay will reach an amicable solution which
will terminate the uncertainty existing.
The chief difficulty arises from the fact
that the committee in charge of the pro
gram of the congress was tied as to recon
sidering its previous action limiting the
scope of arbitration. and Assistant Secre
tary 11111 has consistently refrained from
casting the deciding vote on an issue in
which the southern members of the com
mittee were themselves divided.
It Is understood that Mr. Ihay conours In
this view of the propriety of not casting the
deciding vote. But as this leaves the issue
still open, there Is a sincere desire among
many of the representatives of the coun
tries interested that dtfinite actlon be
taken. so that the uncertainty as to the
presence of one element or the other may
be known. The desire of the authoriti-sris
to bring all the republics into the congress,
and the feeling continues to be hopeful that
this will be accomplished by the course
Mr. Hay will pursue.
CRUISE OF THE MAYFLOWER.
Going to Venesuelan Wasters for a
Stay of Several Days.
Under orders from the Navy Department.
the Mayflower sailed yesterday from San
Juan for Carupano, Venezuela. She .will
make st'ops at La Guayra and Porto Cabel
lo. It is stated by naval officials in author-.
ity that the purpose of the visit of the
Mayflower to Venezuela is to keep in touch
with the situation there, and is a part of
the general plan to show our flag in West
Indian and southern ports. At. the same
time government officials feel that the trip
of the Mayflower will have the effect of
dispelling the Idea, which has been preva
lent In Venezuela, that Minister Loomis
alone was responsible for the visit of the
Scorpion and other American warships to
Venezuelan waters, and that the present
cruise will lie recognized as merely in line
with the customary movements of our
naval vessels to southern ports. The May
flower is a small craft, usually employed
in the service of Governor, Allan of Porto
Rico. Her stay in Venezuelan waters will
be brief, not exceeding three or four days.
All Likely to Be Mustered Out July 1
Lut One Comapany.
The War Department has been informed
that the transport Kilpatrick sailed from
Manila May 29 and the Ohio on June 4 di
rect for San Francisco. Both are carrying
According to latest advices to the War
Department the last of the volunteer troops
in the Philippines left Manila on the 4th
instant and are making the best of their
way to San Francisco. The Grant arrived
at Nagasaki this morning and, owing to
her great speed, is expected to reach San
Francisco by the 1st of July. All the
transports now on their way home, with
one single exception. may reach this coun
try in time to enable the department to
muster out the troops by the 1st of July.
The exception is the transport Kintuck,
now in quarantine in the harbor of Naga
saki on account of an alleged case of
plague in her crew. The vessel will not be
released until the 13th instant and can
hardll make the trip across the Pacific in
less than thirtry days.
The only troops on the Kintuck are one
company of the 38th Volunteer Infantry.
TO CUT DOWN EXPENSES.
Object of Visit of Heads of Military
Departamats to the Philippines.
Becretary Root wishes to have It under
stood that the adjutant general, commis
sary general, surgeon general, Inspector
general and chief signal officer, who are
going to Manila to inspect the army in the
Phiflppines, are not charged with any duty
connected with the establishment of the
civil government. He said they were going
fcr the purpose of getting information
which was necessary to plece the army In
the Philippines on a permanent peace ba
sis, and with a view of reducing the pres
ent heavy expenses to the lowest possible
limit. The Secretary said he would have
been glad to makre the inspection himself,
but, finding it impossible, he wanted the
heads of the military bureaus to see for
themselves what was being done, and to
give him information upon the subject.
More than this, these officers will be able
to decide whether current requisitions for
supplies are proper. The Secretary ex
plained that the war expenses were very
great. It was impossible to investigate
thoroughly all demands and requests, but
under a peace program this could be done
if the depaitment and the officers had ac
curate knowledge of the conditions, It
was hard to reduee expenses, but after t~e
heads of the bureaus have made their re
ports it is hoped that exlpenses can~ be

AT THE WHITE HOUSE
The Visitors Seen by President Mc
VACANT ASSISTANT SECRETARYSHIP
It :s Expected That an Outsider
Will Be Appointed.
T 0 D A Y 'S APPOINTMENTS
Secretary Long John W. Griggs, former
Attorney General,~and Representative Dal
zell of Pennsylvania were among the few
callers at the White House today. They
desired to pay their respects and to In
quire as to Mrs. McKinley's health. Sec
retary Long is just back from Colorado
and also had some official matters to lay
before the President. Mr. Griggs Is In the
city on business and Mr. Dalzell has just
returned from a long trip to the Pacific
coast. He was out there when the Presi
dent was in the west. He said that he
had given no careful study to the decision
of the Supreme Court as to Porto Rico.
H- was exceedingly glad that there was
to be no extra session of Congress.
Mr. Griggs, because of his recent close
relations with the administration, did not
feel inclined to talk for publication as to
the Supreme Court decision.
The terms of a large number of post
masters throughout the country are ex
piring, and appointments must be made
almost daily. Postmaster General Smith
conferred with the President this morning
as to some of these places.
To He AsistsA Secretary.
The understanding Is that the vacancy on
the White House rolls made by the appoint
ment of Assistant Secretary Pruden as a
paymaster in the army, with the rank cf
major, will be filled by the selection of an
outside man. There was a belief for some
time that the position would go to some
one now on the Executive Mansion force,
Chief Clerk Rudolph Forster being most
prominently mentioned, but this has
changed. The situation is rather an inter
esting one. It is pretty generally under
stood that when another vacancy occurs
in the cabinet Secretary Cortelyou will be
promoted to the vacancy. The opinion is
that there will be an opening before a long
time. Mr. Cortelyou's almost certain pro
motion would make a vacancy in the sec
retaryship. The man to be made assistant
secretary will. along with Assistant Secre
tary Barnes, be eligible to promotion. The
chances are that if Mr. Cortelyou goes into
the cabinet the office of secretary will again
become more or less political, and will not
be conferred for personal reasons wholly,
as in the case of Secretary Cortelyou.
Saveal From Life Imprisonment.
President McKinley granted several par
dons today, among them being two men
serving life sentences for murder. One of
the men is Randall Adams, who was con
vieted in Kentucky in 1895 of complicity in
the murder of a deputy marshal, and who
was sentenced to life imprisonment in the
The sentence was commuted to expire
June 15 of this year. The prosecuting
otficer who convicted Adams recommended
the pardon on the ground that the prisoner
was not directly implicated in the killing.
The other man pardoned is Richard Toul
min, who was convicted before the. United
States consular court at Canton, China, last
year and sentenced to life imprisonment at
Shanghai for the murder of a Chinaman
aboard an American ship on December 13,
The United States consul general recom
mended a pardon because of the serious
ill-health of Toulmin. He said that Toul
min would either die or become insane if
not released from prison.

OLD GLORY AND UNION JACK
ST. JAMES GAZETTE ADVOCATES
JOIT DISPLAY JULY 4.
The Times Also Sees Friendly Feeling
in Remarks at Co eir;;!
LONDON, June 6.-Appreciation of the
cordiality of the sentiments Americans and
British are now so frequently exchauiging
is the burden of the comments of the
afternoon newspapers on yesterday even
ing's chamber of commerce banquet. The
St. James Gazette is so friendly that it ad
vocates a display of the stars and stripes
alongside the union Jack on all public
buildings throughbut the- empire July 4,
on the same principle that English uni
vereity men group the light blue an4 the
dark blue (the colors of Cappbrife and
Oxford, respectively,) when they-Vieet.
The Globe alone takes exceptlo to the
dictum that "conmerce is the gr46 peace
maker of the world," and thighs trade
rivalry and the'desire to secure new mar
kets are liable to prove fruitgul sources of
The Westminster Gazette 'says: "Mr.
Chamberlain once said that It would al
most be worth a great war to see the union
jack and stars and stripes floating side by
side. A less martial way of cultivating
good feeling between the two races was
adopted when the London chamber enter
tertained the New York chanber of com
merce at dinner."
The Times is rather distressed at the fact
that nobody referred to the Derby or $he
yacht race, but that the chambers stuck
to their commerce with praiseworthy de
termination, and says that whatever hap
pened in the afternoon the evening was
most correctly spent. The paper adds,
"We are glad to see Lord Lansdowne's
quoting of those admirable word* recently
uttered by President McKinley, who ex
pressed the hope that 'our Bast and in
creasing prosperity may be fruitful 9 noth
ing but good to our elders in the brother
hood of nations.'
"The most daring speaker perhaps, was
Mr. Griscom. He said his .oountrymnen
hoped to build up their shipping trade.
They had made a beginning and, *ith the
co-operation of their government, trusted
to soon see their flag flying pide by side
with that of Great Britain. Cobsidering
how frightened some of us have been at
this 'beginning' and how little we pppre
clate 'co-operation' between the state and
shipping interests in America, Mr. Griscom
was certainly a bold man."
The Westminster Gazette suggests the
banquet may "be regarded as the friendly
handshake which precedes a vigorous en
counter," and adds:
"It served at least to demonstrate that
if our American rivals are going to knock
us out of time in the markets of the world
our merchants means to take their fate in
the best of spirits." .

ATTACK ON BABCOCK
Threat of the American Protective
lY BE A HOT FACTIONAL CONTEST
Feeling of the Western Republi
cans on the Subject.
POLITICS IN THE CASE
There are indications that a very lively
factional contest will occur - within the
ranks of the republican party at the begin
nmg of the next Congress if certain threats
that are now being made are carried into
execution. The American Protective Tariff
League, the organization of the protected
interests of the country, has declared war
on those republican representatives in Con
gress who have indorsed the movement in
augurated by Representative Babcock of
Wisconsin to take the duty off of articles
manufactured by the billion-dollar steel
On the Black List.
The official organ of the league has at
tacked Mr. Babcock vigorously, and one of
the officers of the league who was in Wash
ington a few days ago stated outright that
the league proposed to "go after" every one
of the representatives who either followed
Mr. Babcock or Pefused to help oust him.
The league is to attempt to prevent Mr.
Babcock's reappointment on the ways and
means committee and to try to keep him off
the republican congressional committee.
Other members of the ways and means
committee are also said to be on the black
list, and it is reported that attempts have
already been commenced in the congres
sional districts of these gentlemen to dis
affect their constituencies on the ground
that they .are disloyal to the republican
The weekly publication of the American
Protective Tariff League in the issue of
May 31 had this to say about Mr. Babcock.
Attack on Mr. Babcock.
"Mr. Babcock has leaped into fame at
one bound. So did Benedict Arnold, among
others (? ? ?). There is fame and fame.
But what about Mr. Babcock's relations
with the republican party. He is the repre
sentative-elect of his district in the Fifty
seventh Congress and cannot be unseated
prior to March 4, 1903. He can, however.
be omitted from the House committee on
ways and means when the committee as
signments are made next December and he
can fail of re-election as chairman of the
natioril republican congressional commit
tee. As the responsible author of a bill
whose provisions are in direct conflict with
the platform of the republican party. as an
avowed enemy to the policy of protection
to American labor and industry, is he en
titled to remain, ought he be permitted to
remain a pseudo-republican member of the
House .wava-and- means committee? Should
he again be honored and trusted with the
chairmanship of the national republican
congressional committee? The obvious an
swer is No. To retain Mr. Babcock in
either position would be to bestow a re
ward upon disloyalty and treachery. Mr.
Babcock must go."
Interest in the Situation.
The interest in this situation depends en
tirely upon whether the American Protec
tive Tariff League succeeds in enlisting the
active aid of any influential representatives
in an effort to down Mr. Babcock. The
radical high tariff members of the ways
and means committee have publicly de
plored Mr. Babcock's position and disa
vowed his bill. But whether they will go
to the extremes advocated above remains to
They know, for instance, that Mr. Bab
cock is not .alone in the stand he has taken.
He has a strong following among republi
cans in the Illinois, Indiana, Iowa ano
Kansas delegations. Some of the men from
these states have publicly declared them
selves. Mr. Babcock knows that he has a
further reserve support in thp middle west
and the far western states that would, if
the fight is pushed, rally to him.
Disastrous Results From Factional
The question, therefore, is whether in
these circumstances the extreme protec
tionists will take the responsibility of pre
cipitating a factional contest in the ranks
of the party that would be likely to be
productive of disastrous results to both
It has been a topic of common discussion
and report around the Capitol that Speaker
Henderson was in sympathy with the
movement inaugurated by the western re
publicans to do something with the trust
question. It is asserted with some posi
tiveness that the Speaker would be loath
to refuse a reappointment on the ways and
means committee to Mr. Babcock. It is as
sumed, of course, that Mr. Henderson will
be re-elected Speaker.
The western republicans who are behind
the movement, of which Mr. Babcock has
declared himself the standard bearer, to
receive the brunt of the attack, have ex
plained their position In the premises
frankly. They say that they are still pro
tectionists in every sense of the word, as it
has been understood and construed by the
party in the past. That is, they advocate
p rotection to industries that need them.
But, they say, when an industry has grown
to proportions where It no longer needs
protection, but is able to control prices and
dominate the trade in every way, they
bielieve the tariff should be reduced or re
Polities in the Case.
The politics in the situation, which, after
all, is the ruling factor, is that the west
ern republicans feel that something must
be done with the trust question. They say
that in the last campaign the republicans
premised the people remedial legislation
against trusts that monopolize trade. Con
grems met, but, although a bill had passed
the House, the Senate refused to act upon
The western men fear that unless some
thing is done under the party seal and
stamp tihe question will come up to bother
them in the next campag. It may not be
that the action will b as radical as pro
posed by the Babcock bilL. But thoughtful
republicans believe that some action will
be tdkes, and they-say the Babcock meas
ure will pt least serve to arouse the party
and draw attention to the subject of anti

PEKIN, June 6-The mialtess have

IDEAL WEATHER AT GULLANE.
Vardon and iiraid Wilt Contend for
GULLANE. Scotlafl, June 6.-The con
cluding day's play in the open golf cham
pionship started with ideal weather. Yes
terday's weeding-out process practically
left Harry Vardon and James Braid to
fight for first place, as they were seven
strokes ahead of the next players-Taylor
The spectators, who included some well
known members of parliament and a few
Americans, almost neglected the other
matches to watch the favorites. The bad
putting noticeable was attributed to the
spongy greens. Vardon drew with J. H.
Taylor, so he had every incentive to play
Scotland's prospects of winning the
championship had not been so bright in
many years as when James Braid accom
plished the remarkable feat of going round
Muirfield links in 74 and completed the
third round five strokes ahead of Harry
Vardon. The latter got bunkered several
times and his play was generally weak.
Finally Braid won with a total of 309.
Taylor rivaled Braid's capital work, go
ing round in 74. The features of Braid's
play were perfect driving and deadly put
ting. Nearly a thousand spectators fol
lowed him and their enthusiasm was great.
The amateur. Hilton, played a fine round
for 75 and took the lead of the amateurs.
MAJ. GEORGE ARTRUR DEAD.

CLEVELAND, Ohio, June 6.-Major
George Arthur, assistant paymaster of the
United States army. who recently returned
home from the Philippines, died suddenly

Major Arthur arrived at the hotel at a
very early hour and sat down In a chair
in the lobby. Shortly afterward an attache

and unconscious. He was at once removed
to a room and a byslean smmoned.
Nothing could be done for the dying man,
however. and he breathed his last within
a few minutes after being placed in bed.
The physicians believe that death resulted
from hemorrhage of the stomach or lungs.
An autopsy will be held later.
Major Arthur was about forty-three
years of age and unmarried. Last fall,
while in pursuit of his duties as paynAster
of the troops attached to a remote post in

TELESCOPE MIRROR BREAKS.
Serious Loss to the Lick Observatory
PITTSBURG, Pa., June 6.-A great 36-inch
mirror, belonging to a Newtongn reflecting
telescope at Lick observatory, was shat- 1
tered into many fragments yesterday in the
workshop of Prof. John A. Brashear of this
city while it wars being drilled to convert it
into a Cassegrain glass. As a result it is
probable that the long-projected expedition
of the Lick observatory into the southern
hemisphere will have to be postponed.
Prof. Brashear will make a new glass for
the Lick scientists, but the glass for this
cannot be obtained from France in less
than six months. The great mirror was
five inches thick and weighed about 400
pounds. It was valued at 33,000, but the

TARIFF AND TRUSTS
Statements Made to the Industrial
ER. TIYLER GIVES HIS VIEWS
Any Discussion of the Tariff
Would Be Disastrous.
REPLIES TO QUESTIONS
Mr. Robert W. Tayler of Lisbon. Ohio.
talked about the relation of the tariff and
the trusts before the industrial commission
today. There were present Vice 'hairinan
Phillips. Messrs. Clarke. Harris of Ohio.
Litchman. Kennedy. Farquhar. and Repre
sentative Livingston. The examinatioin was
generally conducted by Mr. Clarke.
Mr. Tayler opened his remarks by declar
ing that in view of the conditions that pre
vail in this country any attempt to t ike off
the tariff on even trust-made goods would
be bad in its effect. Mr. Tayler referrt'd to
the tariff "principle" that should not be
abandoned, and this brought out a questlin
from Representative Livingston of Georgia,
who is against the Dingley tariff. iind be
lieves in the southern democratic idei re
garding a tariff. Mr. Livingston wanted to
know what the witness called the tariff
principle of this country. Mr. Tayl.r re
plying that the idea under the 1 'ingley
tariff being that in order to mainta4in the
standard of living of the working pt ople a
tariff was necessary on goods impl-rted.
"Then you place your demand for tariff
now on the need of the workmen?" inquir
ed Mr. Livingston.
"Chiefly." replied Mr. Tayler. The wit
ness then spoke, in reply to a question. In
regard to the tariff on steel, and said there
is very little tariff on steel products, except
In the case of the newer industries. One
of the newer products was tin plate, and
be said under protection the price of tin
plate has been reduced.
"If any attempt were made." he declar
ed. "to seure a price for tin plate that
was secured before the McKinley tariff on
tin plate went into effect, it would be coe
The Matter of Trusts.
"I am one of those," he said. "who ha
not been able to bring myself in harmony
with the idea that the trusts are good
The trusts, he said. put too much power
In the hands of a few men. He did not
doubt that tfie trusts lead to socialism and
will reach governmental socialism. First.
because of the sentiment in the public mind
growing out of it, and second. when ele
ments of production and distribution are
.ombined in the hand; of a few the ten
lency is toward socialism. When the peo
re see these great combines used for the
nefit of a few they will begin to ask
why they should not be operated by the
government for the benefit of the many.
Mr. Clarke asked whether the witness
knew of any concern that has control of
the production and distribution of any ar
tiele. Mr. Tayler replied that he did net,
rnd said he was not at all in
that any conce I 'r control the
steel use iron and coal are se
widely distributed that they could not be
monopolized. In his own state and district
an independent tin plate plant is being
erected at the present tim, and he was
sure that If the tariff were taxen off tin
plate now it would bring that enterprise t*
a close, and It it should be done in the
future it would be disastrous to such am
Independent concern.- He could imagine
hat such a large concern as the United
States Steel Company. which has absorbed
the American Tin Plate Company, migtt
.ontinue to produce tin plate. If there
uly the trust to consider the takingwof
the tariff off of trust-made goods migh
solve that question, but there were otbal'
nterests to consider. The first result fr
the taking off of the tariff would be to rn
luce the rates of wages.
Combinatien Ameng Werkenm.
Representative Livingston asked whether
;ere is not a combination among work
en that will allow them to take carm
)f themselves in such a case. The witness
-eplied that there was undoubtedly a corn
sination among workmen, but they could
lot secure good wages unless manufactur
re are prosperous. Labor organisations.
ie said, have the power to stop the wheels
f industry just as the capitalist has, but
when they are stopped then labor could
lot maintain Itself for any length of time
Ls capital could.
Speaking of dealing with trusts he said
ie knew of no remedy for that evil If i
a an evil. Publicity might be a goo
king, but it would be a mere scratch o1
he surface. He knew that a trust has
ower to reduce the price of an article.
ut he did not thinkr the public wouldge
nuch benefit from that. In order to
ilvidends on securities of the United StateS
teel Company that company would have
.o extract a great deal from the public.
The witness said that apart from any
sther question he thought that it woul$
pe exceedingly unfortunate to Introduce
iny elements of unrest In the country by
scussing the tariff in Congress or opes
ng up the tariff for any revision.
Mr. Clarke brought out the fact that in
'ree trade Elngiand there are trusts an4
be witness said trusts do not depend tapes
he tariff nor are they the outgrowth of it.
Pref. Guatem's Views.
Prof. George Gunton of New York also
estinled in regard to the relation ofth
aiE and the trusts. The witness dwelt aS
