CHANGED CONDITIONS RECENT INCREASE OF WAGES TO EWPLOYES. Result of General Understanding Among Manufactures So as to Pre vent Changes in Schedules. -When the revision of the tariff is dis cussed a month hence by Congress it will probably be under very different conditions than prevailed two months ago. At that time it was being urged very widely that the wages paid in manufacturing industries had not been increased as greatly as had the cost of living, and that the higher prices secured for products cf all kinds that were benefited by the tariff were not par ticipated in"by the workmen. This presen tation of the case, if sustained, would have shattered the groundwork of the tariff theory, so far as it could offer a justifica tion for the conditions prevailing in manu facturing sections. In other words, the condition, it was declared, did not justify the prevailing rates df duty by Iny argu ment that wage earners were being bene fited. Those who are now very thoroughly in touch with manufacturing interests in New England declare that the extent to wich manufacturing concerns have increased wages during the past six weeks is not fully realized, and that within the next month increases for labor from 10 to 20 per cent will have been made all along the line. Cause of Wage Increases. There are men who are well informed in manufacturing affairs who believe that these increases are not altogether the nat ural result of industrial conditions, a mere adjustment of wages in accordance with the laws of supply and demand. They be lieve that the reason for the increases. in many instances at least, is in anticipation of the fight to he waged in Congress dur ing the coming session over tariff revision. They say that manufacturers who are be ing benefited by the tariff realizing that they are apt to be brought be-fore the com mittees of the Senate and House of Rep resentatives to show cause why the full amo-ur of the tariff protection they have been enjoying should not be reduced, are getting in condition to make a favorable showing. The increases in wages now be ing made are doing much to reinforce their arguments that the rates of wages in this country are sufficiently higher than those abroad to warrant the protection they get by means of the tariff. Men who are carefully studying the sub ject of tariff revision believe that this ac tion on the part of manufacturers will be most influential on Congress in determ!n ing what shall be done with the tariff. They are convinced that by this means t'he man ufacturers are preparing the strongest ar guments that can possibly be brought for ward in favor of a retention of the pre vailing duties in which they are interested. Result of General Understanding. There are numerous reasons that lead men who are observing the situation to believe that the increases being granted em ployes in manufacturing districts are the result of a general understanding, and are not only voluntary, but have not been in fluenced by fears of labor troubles, at least at this time. In most of the firms in which these increases have been granted it is said that they were not brought about by any fear of strikes or other labor troubles. There has been widespread comment on the claim that has been made by many that the cost of living has increased out of proportion to the rate of wages, even with increases that have been made.during the past two 3r three years. But there were no conditions of ferment among men who have now been acordeded the higher wages to indicate that if they were not forthcoming there would be trouble and possible strikes and tieups. Each Industry to Stand Alone. In the case of tariff revision every in dustrV will stand alone. The argument that there may be a reasoniMe reduction of the tariff will probably be up for proof in a:! the schedules. Manufacturers who apDear in Derson or by representatives be fore the committees of Congress will show conditions In their own lines of industry. They will develop facts showing a com parison of wages here and abroad in their lines of work and will make some compari son to show the relation of wages now paid with the orices they are getting for their Droducts - Every increase of wages they concede between the present time and the discussion of this question in Congress will to that extent reinforce them in mak ing a strong argument.

U M w l MAY CONCEAL DANGER I et -C, ri, RE ARARLE SERZ ON BY THE to th BISHOP OP RIPON. to til English Country Police Wage War'on e (10 Automobilists-London News h( and Gossip. Speeial Corresondence of The Evening Star. T LONDON, November 12, 1902. V( The British press is hopelessly divided on gr the subject of the German emperor's visit. fo Many papers declare that it is merely 'the at friendly visit of a relative to King Edward, cc and has no ulterior motive, while others see in the Kaiser's coming new concessions al, by this country toiGermany. They remem- ra ber the three years slander campaign of ru the Germans during the Boer war, and tb long for ministers strong-minded enough to hi withstand the blandishments of the concili- w atory kaiser. . cc Lord Salisbury, it is said, recognized the W danger, and, when he could, avoided it by d flight. The English cannot forget how on a memorable occasion some years back the lir emperor, to use a homely phrase, hum- P bugged Mr. Chamberlain into the belief that Germany and England had formed a o strict alliance or would do so, and how th when the colonial secretary indiscreetly w proclaimed this supposed good news, the Y( German premier promptly disclaimed It. This rebuff caused extreme mortification t in England. What will happen now? It ce is clear that the emperor's visit to San- or diringham is not meant to end with the W shooting of a few score of pheasants. Views in Parliamentary Circles. of In parliamentary circles less heed is paid f to the kaiser's visit than is commonly sup posed. The notion that the German em peror is here formally to complete the deal er about Delagoa bay does not meet with dl crodence in most generally well-informed w circles. The understanding between Eng- at land and Germany on that subject dates m from before the war. In effect, the tr,aty simply gives England the right of pre-emip- A tion should Portugal desire to dispose of fE her rights in that region. Had it be- p rs s!ble to compel Portugal to sell the tr':aty p would have come into operation at :he be- a ginning of the war, for the obvious reason a that with Delagoa bay in Great Britain's possession the war would have taa n shn t- it ened considerably. The keenest students of foreign politics in I the house of commons are inclined to think V that the kaiser's visit is chiefly intended to remove the suspicion and unfriendliness W which have been growing between the two countries in the last two or three years. In face of this morning's news from China that Germany has made a secret ar- T1 rangement with China for advantages in the Yangtse valley, it is interesting to re call the fact that Lord Rosebery is never er tired of insisting, privately if not publicly, t that Lord Salisbury and his colleagues have ~ always proved too pliable with German dip- t lomatists. The "graceful concession" of e Heligoland is a case in point. The British are perfectly willing to be friends with the Germans if the latter do not try to overreach their cousins here, but W they are naturally somewhat suspicious of a them. Mr. Balfour at the lord mayor's banquet preached peace and predicted it as well. It is heartily desired here, and Brit- C ish statesmen will doubtless combine with c Germany to pre,erve peace if a possible way be shown. A Significant Sermon. li One of the most interesting features of Irl the royal visit thus far is the sermon which Sc the bishop of Ripon preached before the hi uncle and nephew on Sunday at Sandring- w; ham. This also breathed peace and friend- th ship. The bishop said, in part: ' * em "This is a day on which the monarch of a 10 tb kindred people has come not as a sovereign, tb but as a kinsman and a friend, to share the nE joys, as awhile ago he shared the sorrows, fit of the English people. Call it a dream that gr one day these distinctions will disappear. hi and yet it is well that we should dream th nobly. Facts seem to point to the possibil- of ity of the realization of that dream. Na- da ture may have differentiated races by one m part of her processes, but during the last n( 3,000 years she seems to have blended them. da The ninety or one hundred nations of the it time of Herodotus have diminished, and it St is calculated that in a hundred years the wJ two or three hundred tongues of the earth w will have sunk to thirty or forty and the pr nationalities to twenty.- in "The western civilization and the western gi races are growing, wole the oriental peo ples stand still. It is calculated that with in gcentury the western population will wen nigh double the eastern, and however much Germany and England may be divided SI by the German ocean the race blended by both peoples goes on growing across the Atlantic. where Germans and English are becoming one nationality." te This latter statement is the expressIon of to a fact 'that has been slowly filtering itself into the minds .of the British people, that,~ American nationality is a separate entIty. M It is nei,ther British nor German nor any thing else but American. It has many ele- in meunts and America has the power of as similating all kdnds of people, but all turn i into Americans in a way that does not seem, within the power of -any other coun try to accomplish. ct Eing of Portugal's Visit. is An emperor present, of course, overshad owe a king absent, and so with the Kaiser , Wilhelm within our borders we hear little s at the moment of the King of Portugal's th approaching visit. Yet it must prove to he one it 'treme. int.rest. The king, as an individual, is a unique personage. One might call hIm the William Tell of Portu- or gal. As a shot he is one of the very best . and has a perfect mania sfor sliooting at j coins held between the finger's of some shiv-* ering courtier, In Portugal he dispenses N with poliee supervision. No one wantsa his H life. There are no industrial troubles.- to I give birth to plots, for the simple reason thalt there are practically no industries, His people, somehow, procure enough to.H enable them to "laze" along i life, and ask for no more.

The most suc sful plan appears to be to measure a Ile or a fraction of a mile on some nice. vel, unfrequented stretch of country road id to time the speedy car from point to 4nt by means-suen is the scrupulous ac racy of police evidence-of stop watches. rtain tempting lengths of road in va )us parts of the country have become no rious for the number of "cases" which ey furnish, and one of these was referred in court by the police by the suggestive le of "Catchem Corner." Here a police an. disguised as a yokel, signaled to con aled colleagues farther along the road lenever a car passed at what appeared be over the legal limit of speed, and a avy crop of summonses is the result. any Entries in London-Oxford Rin. rwo hundred and thirty cars, the largest imber ever assembled in Britain, took part sterday in the Automobile Club's anni reary run from London to Oxford. But a easy road and a blizzard proved too much r many of the cars, and these turned tail I Richmond Park. The hundred which mpleted the journey had some good fun 4 the policeman's expense. Constables i ere plentifully sprinkled along the road le, though the run was in no sense a ce, and both the laws of the land and the lea of the road were rigidly enforced by e club officials. The disappointed faces I th'e policemen contributed largely to the I amors of the road. In all cases "traps" ere located before being reached, the untry people, far from being hostile to ird the motorists, going out as scouts in i Ivance and warning the procession when I nger lay ahead. Across the street of one village hung a ke supporting a constable's helmet and a ard bearing the legend, "Beware of the )lice." On one occasion constables In j aIn clothes were pounced upon, ignomin uisly dragged from behind hedges and anked. An amusing hoax, however, was Drked upon the automobilists. Two auths, standing at the limit of a subposecf i 0 yards, brandishing a card printed with e words, "Police Trap," the whole pro salon crawled painfully over the distance, ly to find they were the victims of a holesale practical joke. The motorists rre enthusiastically received at Oxford. is noteworthy that of the E10,000 worth cars, 50 per cent were of British manu cture. Walls of Old Abbey Unearthed. A most Interesting archaeological discov y has been made in Bermondsey. While gging foundations in Abbey street the Drkmen found masonry belonging to the tcient abbey of Bermondsey. In 1082 a onastery was founded in Bermondsey by win Childs, an eminent and wealthy citi n of London. It was at first an allenf undation, being dependent on the Cluniac lory of La Charite-sur-La Loire. It grew pidly in importance, however, was made "Danizen" monastery In 1380. ardd in 1399 is erected into an abbey. At that time had attained such importance as to justi the appellation of "Westminster of South. >ndon." In 1537 the abbey surrendered to Henry [II, and the site was granted to the naster of the rolls," Sir Robert South 1l. The latter ipPmediately conveyed the tate to Sir Thomas Pope, who demol ied the old conventual church and with e materials built Bermondsey House. ie use afterward came into possession Tromas, Earl of Sussex, who on sev al occasions en-tertained Queen Elizabeth ere.

In Grange Walk there are still to seen the last remains of the last gate Ly. the hooks in which the gate was hung ill remaining in their original position. [n addition 'to the pieces of masonry there ye' also been unearthed a few bronze Ins, a token dated 1M5, and a broken ucible containing pieces of glass. New Dook on America. A new book on America has been pub hed by M. Emile Boutmy, member of the etitute of France, director of the High g hool of Political Sciences, well known for 3 philosophica- lectures and works, and lo has a great many followers among e young French generation. The book is titled "Political Psychology of the Amer Ln People." It studies the formation of e United States; how its people came to e idea of fatherland and to the oonscious' as of being a state, by which secret in tences the idea of future life became so eatly extended and diversified hand in md with the political growth. M. Boutmy inks that American democracy has need a counterbalance, without which It is in ,nger of a popular despotism. The actual ultiplication of electoral mandates will ot be a sufficient remedy against this .nger. Writing on imperialism, he thinks will last and develop itself in the United 3 atea as the effect of deep causes, but t thout damaging the American traditions bose consequence it is. The book is of imary interest to Americans as manifest- t g the ideas of one of the most distin sished men of Latin mentality. L. H. MOORE. Kensington News.r esci Corresuondence of The Evening Star.

RESULTS IN EGYPT [XENSE PROFITS OF THE ABOU IR COMPANY. gas Reclaimed 15,000 Acres of Land That Was Formerly Worthless The Alkali Drained Off. The extraordinary commercial poss;bil ties of-the great irrigation project in which he government of the United States is now mrgaged are well illustrated by data gath 'red in Egypt by Prof. Thos. M. Means of he Department of Agriculture, who citc. he case of the Abou Kir Company of Alex Lndria. a corporation which obtained from he Egyptian government the title to a ract of land regarded as utterly worthless >ecause of excess of water and the pr,s mnee of great quantities of alkali, which ias 'reclaimed approximately 15.01to acres, Lnd whose dividends have gradually risen Irom 5 per cent to 45 per cent per annu-n within a period of a few years. The land !ost the company nothing to start with, but :he irrigation and underdrainage entailed in expense of from 20 to V25 per acre. roday the land is renting for V25 per acre )er annum, and none can be bought out -ight for less than $300 per acre, the figure it which the last sales were made. The tract now undergoing reclamation by he Abou Kir Company contains 30,4mm Lcres. In the days of the Romans it was ioted for the excellent quality of the wines nade from its grapes and was one of the nost valuable regions in ancient Egypt. After the Arabian conquest it was permit :ed to "go back." to use the local term, and is a result became flooded with swamp water, which left deposits of alkali double n strength those on the western lands of :he United States, which the federal gov -rnment hopes to reclaim. This case is iot a-n isolated one, according to Prof. %leans. A large portion of the territ-ry of Fgypt is now undergoing reclamation. and t was to study the methoils which have ,iclded such remarkable results that Prof. Weans journ<-ed to Egypt and spent the iottest months of the year inspecting the rrigation and underdrainage systems. In the Land of Goshen. In the land of Goshen. lying between the Nile and the Red sea, and famous in bibli :al history as the region to which the [sraeli-tes were assigned by Pharaoh, the ,gyptian government is now engaged in a rigantic reclamation project., Profiting by :he example of enterprising private com )anies. the authorities have determined to ,eclaim an immense area which has long iuffered from lack of sufficient moisture tnd which was, it was supposed. rendered itterly worthless by a canal dug by the en xineeirs constructing the Sues cana' for the 3urpose of supplying fresh water to the arge force of workmen engaged in that indertaking. The camal was not care ully constructed and the seepage was of inusual proportions. Reaching the alkaline leposits which underlie the entire area,' Ae water brought them' to the surface in iuch quantities as to make the soil abso utely arid. The government is now constructing two :anals at different altitudes. One will sup fly fresh water for irrigation, and the other will carry away the alkali drawn off by the trains, which will be placed about four eet below the surface and 150 feet apart. 3uring the first year it will be necessary o keep the surface saturated and no crop an be grown, but immense Quantities of tLkali will be washed out and into the Rted ea. The second year.-a forage crop can be 'aised, and after that the usual crops of ligypt--corn, wheat and cotton-can be rrown in great abundance. In the course. >f this work the surveyors discovered the well-preserved remains of an irrigation tanal, constructed by one of the Pharoahs, description of which is to be found in ieroditus. The officers in charge are now working on the problem of restoring por ions of the original aqueluct for present se. Irrigation in This Country. The exceptional success with which the ftorts of the Egyptian hydrographic engi ,mers, who, by the way, are mostly Eng ishmen, have been crowned, is the result of *ears of careful and expenelve experimenta ion, and they cheerfully furnished to the 'epresentative of the American government very facility for profiting by the knowledge hus attained and avoiding the otherwise nevitable mistakes. There are thousands of acres in the nited States where irrigation alone will rove sufficient without the underdrainage recessary in Egypt, but some areas of the reatest value because of their fertility Lnd proximity to large markets will require he dual treatment. The irrigation bill passed at the last ses lion of Congress provides for the establish-. nent of reservoirs and the construction of listributing ditches in suffBcient number to permit of the use of the water thus stored, iut there is no provision made for the un lerdrainage of the more alkaline soils. This will have to be done by private capital, al hough the bureau of bois of the Depart nent of Agriculture is already making innall demonstration experiments to prove he efficacy of the system in various sec-. ions of the west. In one instance, In the 5an JToaquim' valley, a single irrigation had, Lt last reports, removed fifty-five tons of tlkali from a single acre and the drains were still running. There are hundreds of housands of acres in this valley which it s 'reasonable to assume will yield to the rrig~ation underdrainage treatment and which ' will double and treble in value as oon as the alkali has been removed. Will hInresse Wealth Enornm.ualy. The application of this system will add naterially to the area which will become usceptible of c6ltivation as a result of the iansbrough-Newlands Irrigation bilL, and very acre will add enormously to the. g regate wealth of the country, for not only a the land now saturated with alkali, most ertile is plant foodi: but the possibility of tpplying water to the growing crops as~ eeded, in itself greatly iecreases the yield.
