Washington. June CO. The President's re
iteration of his determination to provide
for a tariff reduction on Cuban Imports has
retried taik of an extra session. There
ore those who believe that, if the matter Is
not attended to at the present session of
Congress the President will reassemble the
lawmakers in extraordinary fression this
A new compromise on the Cuban rec'p
roclty question is suggested bv the bet
tugar men to-day, and they are urging Its
adoption by the administration Senators
as an easy and profitable way out of the
dilemma. The Ii'ea is that the United
States shall adopt a countervailing duty
against the cartel of Germany and Austro
Hungary The effect, it Is claimed, would be to al
most immediately increase the price of raw
sugar the world over about 1 cent a pound,
nnd bring Instant Drospcrity to the sugar
growers not only of Cuba, but I,ouIsIana,
Hawaii and Porto Rico.
It is declared that the cartel which has

Lord Beiesford, in House of Com
mons, Scathingly Criticises
Xaval Inefficiency.
London, June 20 Durins tho discussion
of the navy estimates In the House of
Commons to-cay. Rear Admiral Lord
Charles Beresford, Conservative, scathing
ly ciltlcised the deficiencies of the navy.
He declared the whole admiralty system
was rotten and led to great extravagance,
and that there was a general want of
efficiency In the navy, on which depended
the existence of the Empire.
This was the Judgment of all tho com
missions of Inquiry and had been proven a.
fact. Every increase In the number of
ehlps and every improvement in them had
been the result of outside agitation. As a.
result of such agitation the British Medi
terranean fleet was now a fourth strongeri
than a year ago.
It is remarkable, Lord Beresford added,
that both army and navy officers are com
pelled to threaten to resign In order to get
things righted Great Britain has only 20,
000 naval reserves Instead of the requisite
89.000. and the engine-room departments are
thousands of men short. As to armament,
both tho United States and France possess
superior guns'
Blunders will continue, he said, until a
separate business board is appointed at
the ndmlralty and made responsible for the
efficiency of the fleet. Treasury control,!
fatal to efficiency. As an Instance, the
speaker pointed out the case of Sir Wil
liam Vernon Harcourt, who, when Chan
cellor of the Exchequer, put his pen
through the ammunition supplies after tho
.guns had been ordered.

Aix la Chapelle. Pri.sl3, June 20 A
striking speech on religion was delivered bj
Emperor William at the City Hall here yes

After observing that tho city was the
cradle of the German Empire, as Charle

"This justifies me," continued Emperor
William, ' In .saj ing that our two greit

IVatnrcx of Primary Law,

that they cnuld do this If they refrained
from participates in the Democratic
primary, June CO
Senator Drabelle. the author of the new
primary law, was aiked concerning this
teature of the case yesterday and raid.
"Puch Democrats will find themselves dis
qualified If they attempt to vote at an
Democratic primary in the period of two
vears from the date of yesterday's primary
"Section 2 of the new primary law defines
the term, 'primary period' as 'the time
Intervening irom the date of the election of
State officers to the date of the next sub
sequent election of the lame officers,'
n lilch is tw o y ears
"Section 18 of the act provides that when
any elector votes at a primary election one
of the judges shall lmmediatdy enter up in
his prisence in the proper column tne word

are used in all primaries a record is thus
kept, which, if the Judges do their duty,
will prohibit the elector from voting at a
primary election held by any other during

"Section 17 provides that the primary'
registration bocks used at a primary shall
be open to Inspection at all times, during

Friend Defend Him on Point of Ape
nml Mlvcr luetIon.
Speaking of the candidacy of Judge Thom
as A. Sherwood for the Supreme Court
bench, one of his friends yesterday com
mented upon some of the points which
Judge Sherwood's opponents have sought
to xalse against him
"I notice," said the friend, "that the ques
tion of advanced age has been brought up,
notw Ithstanding Judge Sherwood's age com
pares with that ot all the Judges of the
Supremo Court. Judge Sherwood was born
in June. 1S3I. and Judge Braes Just one y ear
later. Judge Burgess was born In Novem
ber, 1S35. and Judge Valllant In June 1SJ8
So it will be seen that Juage Sherwood is
only four yearn older than the youngest
member of the Supreme bench.
When they urge ngalnst him that he Is
a 'gold bug, they are clearly away from
the facts." the friend continued. "Judge
Sherwood was one of the earliest champions
of silver, and one of the first to boldly re
buke Cleveland at a time when most of tho
present sliver leaders were w.th the former
President. In a speech at the Mercantile
Library Hall in October. 1SS6. Judge Sher
wood said on the money question:
" 'In reference to the free coinage ot sil

Western Democrats. He is Indorsed by
some Western Democrats for his approval
of tha oleomargarine bill. There Is a con
flict of approbation and disapproval which is
explained only by Mr. English's utterances.

uf this ailment developed during Ills Majes

Easter holidays. Prompt treatment and a
period of absolute rest, with very little
physical exertion, were efficacious.
Since the London bcason began, however,
the King has been called Upon to stand a
great deal a courts and other functions,
which rath - tried his strength and brought
on a recurrence of the former attack.
The King, appreciating the fact that un

the coronation might prove too severe a

trouble, decided to cancel nil engagements
until those immediately connected with the
coronation began.
It Is now pretty definitely decided that
after the coronation the King will go for a
cruise in the royal yacht, and, away from
cares of state and social functlors. will seek
the rest which his system demands and e--cape
from the necessity of standing for
long periods of time.

Wllkesbarre, Pa , June 20 Reports re
ceived to-day- from the unionized States
which have contracts with the operators in
the Middle West show general opposit on
there to a strike.
These reports come from the presidents
and other officers of the State districts who
are supposed to have control of their men.
With the exception of Illinois, the officers
of all the organized districts where con
tracts exist are reported to view the pro
posed national strike with disfavor. There
are to be added to these figures about 2D
votes from Maryland, Colorado, Washing
ton, Montana, Indian Territory, Arkansas,
New- Mexico, Texas and the bituminous re
gion of Pennsylvania, which Is not under
contract with the operatois.
Most of thesie votes are understood to be
for a strike, because a victory would per
fect the organization In those States and
gain contract for the workers which they
are eager to have, so that, despite the pro
nounced opposition in the central belt. It
looks now as If a soft-coal strike Is una
voidable, providing all the anthracite woik
eis are for It.
There is a belief that a few will refuse
to declare for a general strike, but the
number will be so small that It will be un
important. The question is now not so much whether
there will be a strike, but whether those
btaies having contracts and which oppose
a strike, win obey tne strike ord;r or
vh tlier they will, as the ptestdents of most
of tnem say to-day, keep their contrac.s
and refuse to stop work. If this occurs
there will be a split In the union.

'10 All Optolns: Firecrackers anil firework

Chief Klely"s reason for Issuing the order
was because, in the last few days, several
horses have been frightened by the explo

nons by children over the city, who have
been anticipating Independence Day. On
that dav the Chief feels that patriotism
may be allowed to give vent to Itself with

Roik Island Officials to Participate

Intel est 3.
Suba Siations of Wab t-.Ii and
Rock Island Re-ids -May Be
Located Within the Im
position liroiinds-.
'PrtVdem Willfum B I. cd of the Rock
Island will airlve Sunday frcm Chicago to
arslst In the arrangement for the disposi
tion of Jhe Wcr'd's Tair railway terminals,
yet In an indefinite shape. He will be fol
lowed Monday- by General Attcrnev Rnbeit
Mather of the same line.
The presence of President Leeds and
other Hock Is. and officials revives interest
In the IsFue which must be met by the
Wabash and Heck Island for the safest
and. most expeditlnu fettlement of the
terminal question at the World's Fair.
The Rock Island is known to in-
' sIyt
upon art Independent righ-of-way
the city by way cf tlu World 3
Fair grounds, parallel to the Wabaso. Tr
Wabash Is willing to grant tbe Rock I lard
trackage facilities Into the city and ovr its
terminal lines to the Etiosl.lon. The-K cJt
Island is not willing to accept such facl
itles. which has given rise to the later pro
posal by the p-operty owners concerned m
the complications, that a parallel right-of-way-
to the Wabash through the park 1o
the line of De Baliviere avenue be canted
to the Rock. Island.
The questions which have to do with the
J proposal of the property owners on West
moreland and Portland places to purchase,
from the Rock Island the terminal territory
acquired by that road recently from tho
Park View Realty Company; the adjust
ment of the route of the Colorado line, now
controlled by the Rock Island; an airree
ment whereby the main entrance of the Ex
position will be protected from spoliation by
being placed out of its logical location In
the front approach to the grand court of
the Fair; the adjustment of the railway
tracks In the Fair site, and the rearrange
ment of the railway routes through Forest
Park In thtlr approach to the Exposition.
The first proposition, with respect to the
sale of the Rock Island's recent property
acquisition on the Park View Realty Com
pany's former holdings, near Union boule
vard, to the property owners of Westmore
land and Portland places. Is to be made cons,
dltiona! upon provisions for other adequate
terminals for that line, near the main en
trance of the Fair, insuring a fair competi
tion with the Wabash at that point. Inci
dent to this provision is the problem of the
removal from the north line of the Catlla
tract of the Colorado line, or the depression
of that road below the property grade. Tola
is the point on -which the Catlln tract own
ers stand.
With such an adjustment, the Rock Island!
has Intimated through Its officials In tha
conference with city authorities. World"! '
Fair representatives and property owners,
that it will Fell Its holdings at Union boule
vard to the property owners of Westmore
land and Portland places. Those who have
been In these conferences agree in saying;
that the key of the present problem is some
arrangement by which the Rock Island 1x187
secure the parallel right-of-way up to tha
main entrance of the Fair and a continua
tion through the park Into the city.
This arrangement would necessitate the
rearrangement of the existing right-of-way
of the Wabash across a part ot the north
ern end of Forest Park. As related in Th
Republic of Friday, the proposal is that
the roadbed of the Wabash be carried
through the park on a subway from the
Bolnt where it now makes Its entrance at
fnlon avenue to a point about where the
Lindell pavilion stands, where a subway
station tor the delivery of passengers for
the Fair could be made. The tracks. In this
event, would then leave the park in the
subway and take a course along the line
of De Baliviere avenue and thence to rejoin
the main line at or near Forsythe Junction.
The Rock Island desires the same privileges
and out of this demand arises the pro
posal for parallel tracks.
A World's Fair official has gone a step
further In the statement that the great un
derground subway stattcn of the Wabasn
and Rock Island would be located Inside
the Exposition site at Its eastern end, near
Lindell boulevard. This location would not
affect the plan to carry tho tracks of both
roads Inas -v under Lindell boulevard
and along De Baliviere to the Junction with
the main tracks of either road further to
It has been learned that it is the intention
of the city authorities after the Exposition
to extend the Increased width, of Lindell
boulevard past the point where the main
entrance to the ExposlUon would be situ
ated to Washington University. Tha pres
ent plan contemplates only the widening of
the boulevard to the gates of the Exposi
tion. This would be dons by taking fifteen
feet from the Park View Realty Company's,
holding and fifteen feet frcm Forest Park
for the distance between Union boulevard
and De Baliviere avenue, where tha Fair
entrance la to be located.
