GERMAN TARIEF NEARS CRISIS Congress Must Recipro cate, or Americans Pay Penalty. WILL RAISE COST OF BREAD Socialists Opposed but Passed as Duties Go to Pension Fund. NO DtVELOPEMENTS IN MOROCCO New York, Feb. 5. All grain ship ments to Germany from American ports have ben tied up. pending the settlement of the tariff question be tween the United Slates and Gormany. lhe laat shipments have gone out nnd no more contracts for American grain -f any kind are unfilled and outstand ing. The tariff agreement between the United States .and Germany will ex pire on March 1 of this year and, un less congress, In the meantime, takes some definite steps toward the estab lishment of reciprocal trade relations. the new high tariff on American grains will go Into effect In Germany. The roichstag has accepted the proposed higher schedule on wheat, oam, rye nnd barley, bu has not yet acted upon the proposed higher schedule for earn, expecting, probably, that the United States government would take some steps toward preventing a tariff war between the two countries. Under the new law the dufy on wheat will be 65 marks per kilo, in stead of 35 as heretofore; rye, BO marks instead of 35; malting barley 4c instead of 2c marks; and icats, 5c Instead of 28 marks. Should a tariff war between the two countries break out, Germany would Impose the maxi mum rates, which are still higher than the rates here given. It has been a mystery to a great many people on this side of the ocean. how the German government was able to secure the adoption of the new schedule, as Its Immediate effect would be a considerable Increase in the price of bread In all parts of Germany. The socialists mado the best use of .that argument In opposing the new sched ule, but they were appeased . by the promise of thei German government, that the sum accruing from the high er duties, would lie fr.ansferrod to the imperial pension fund. The general sentiment In Germany Is by no means one of enlmty toward the United States cr Its products. The people simply feel that they owe It to themselves to retaliate against a country which discriminates against German products. CRITICAL STAGE HAS NOT YET BEEN REACHED Algeclras, Feb. 13.

The paper further asserts that private efforts among the delegates to Induce France to retreat from her position are henceforth useless, add ing: "It is now for the assembled conference to decide whether, as Ger many contends France's claims are Ir reconcilable with the dignity of Mo rocco, the sovereignty of the sultan and commercial liberty." This indi cates that France eloes not want to purpsue efforts for private accord be fore the controversy reaches the con ference.

President Mitchell is chairman of-this committee. Demands to be Made. The propositions to be presented t the mine operators by the union rep resentatives today have not been mada public but more or less accurate re ports of their nature have leaked out. It has been learned that among the proposals to be submitted are those for an eight hour day, without any reduction In wages for all employes paid by the hour, day or week; a uni form wage scale In the three anthra cite districts for the different classes of employes; adequate compensation for dead work performed by contract miners; increase of wages of from 10 to 20 per cent for all company men; adoption of a system by which the coal shall be paid for by weight wherever practicable; and recognition of the union. Before they went Into tlie conference today the operators and representatives of the men were hopeful of an amicable ; agreement. The operators are a unit against the recognition of the miners' association, but It is understood that if the oper ators are reasonably liberal, from the miners' point of view, and an agree ment Is in sight, the union will not push the organization to the front and pres. to rlta. recognition. , LABOR DEBATE BETWEEN ORGANIZATION LEADERS.

MINSTRELS PLEASED LARGE AUDIENCE RICHARDS & PRINGLE'S AGGRE GATION RECEIVED MUCH AP PLAUSE TWO WINNING FEA TURES. Albuquerque has had several min strel organizations here this wasou. but the performance last night seem ed to please better than any of tho previous ones. While the opening of the first part did not make much of a hit, before the performance had pro ceeded many numbers the colored per formers hud the audience with them and after that It was "easy money" for them to win laughs and applause from the audience?. With the excep tion of "Everybody Works but Father" which the writer had hoped would not be resurrected by the lieorgias. and one or two others of a like nature, thu songs were new and well rendered. The two features that won the moat appreciation from thu audience, how ever, despite the fact that funny Clar ence Powell had to sing about ten verses of ".Never," was the com edy work or Frank Klrke, tne tramp, and his musical partner, Cooper. Kirke has many laughable stunts und a fa cial expression that la great, lie keut. the audience iu an uproar from luo lime of his appearance, while Cooper furnished the music. This team re sponded to several encores, the audi ence raising the roof each time until they did respoud. The othe r star fea ture was the work of Marsh Craig, "the human enigma," und a good tillo it Is, too. His contoruion work and fea's of tialanclng were simply wou derful, he seemingly not being equip ped with bones.
