IT was an English prime minister who said that the way to stop
war, present or threatened, was to get the ambassadors of the
powers in conflict together with their legs under the same table.
It was only one way of saying that personal contact and discus
sion always proves the best peace maker. It is proposed to apply
this maxim of statecraft to allay the industrial disorders that
There is nothing that more quickly brings a man to his bear
ings than to be compelled to state his grievances or his desires in
parliamentary language in the hearing of the other party. When
once you convert a state of war into a condition of deliberation
there is hope of peace. . ]}.*s?f£t>. i
Personal contact does much. Friction of man with man rubs
off^ngles and smooths asperities. There comes a spirit of . give
These are the ideas that lie at the root of the proposed peace
conference to be held in this city next month. Labor leaders and
captains of industry will meet on common ground with eminent
statesmen of national reputation. It will «go hard if they are not j
able to find a way out for San Francisco. This is a city sorely
troubled, but her citizens are loyal and never, lose faith in her
splendid destiny nor bate a jot of heart- or hope. .
THE Yosemite stage holdup is very well done. It rings true to
life and at the same time is conducted- with the utmost regard
for the proprieties and -a' reassuring politeness. The wicked
bandit permits himself to bo- photographed as a keepsake for
tourists. The stage drivers are not permitted to carry deadly
weapons, for fear somebody might get" hurt. ' The accomplished
reinsman is ready where the security seems. good to finance a trans
action in watches between the highwayman and ,a passenger. The
t-ufferers are relieved of their valuables with the most distinguished
consideration. If we might be permitted to offer a suggestion,
the highwayman should have a more convincing gun. A rusty old
weapon that had been fished out of a haymow mars the realism.
There appears to be but one rift in the lute. The highwayman
takes a. rather mean advantage over the Yosemite inn keepers.
He always holds up the stage on the way into the valley, from
which a suspicious mind might infer that he was afraid to trust
the inn keepers with the first whack at the tourist. When we con
sider the otherwise cordial relations that appear to exist, we are
compelled to say that the highwayman is" playing it; lowdown
on his pals. >i ; > .-;
It is an ancient and honorable tradition that the highwayman
is usually in league with the inn keeper. Between them they have
always divided up the traveler, but the Yosemite robber is wiser
than the bandit of an elder day. Instead of coming in at the heel
of the hunt for the leavings he beats the inn keeper to it.
He is part of the show and tourists concur that they would
not have missed it for anything.' They are not permitted to-suffer
because of any trifling irregularity like a 'holdup/ The* valley is
theirs and all that is therein while they stay. They concur with
one accord that the experience is worth the money. They have
acquired, at trifling cost, a story that they. can hand down to their
grandchildren about the brave days of old when they took part in
a stage holdup, and good stage money was offered as a reward for
capture of the highwayman. No, the fairies are not all dead.
THERE is consternation in the camp of. the stand patters. The
future looks dark, indeed, if one may trust the gloomy
prognosis of the Washington correspondent of the Chicago
Tribune. It is the new German reciprocity convention' that
causes alarm and distrust. It is feared that the Dingley tariff has
been stricken a mortal blow. We qupte from the Tribune : \u25a0 * :
It is provided that in ca^cs where German products ar^i manufactured
especially for export trade or are sold, in such limited quantities at home
that it is impossible to establish a domestic "product ah "export price" shall
be established by the manufacturer himself... i. • ' ;
It is in this regard that Dr. North's blunder, it is said,. will cost the
ynited States so much in the future. All the German manufacturer has : to
do is to put up a staple article in an unusual-form "and refrain^ from selling
it in that shape on the domestic market. It immediately becomes an article
tor export only, and the manufacturer fixes his own price, which under the
convention cannot be attacked • either by our consuls or by customs ap
praisers at the port of .arrival, no matter what may be. its- actual value.
In promulgating the/ new:. regulations the state, department' sent out
word they vyere to be" universal and were . not to apply solely to Germany.
If this be true the opportunity for undervaluations by. foreign manufacturers
is obvious. It will not take them long to break down our tariff-walls," and
congressmen and others are becoming alarmed- for the future. Several im
porters have sent in protests and there is, talk of a contest in the courts'
although it is difficult to understand just how thft' can be made unless the
government itself takes the initiative. . - "
,We don't know whether it is quite t so bad as all that v - If the"
United States has made a bad bargain it ''-can ""be;^ corrected; That . is
about all there is to the tariff^rl^is^good : bu^ness(sften-ahd:bad
business sometimes. Tariff making is very-much akin to" the process
of selling a pig. .There is nothing sacred about it and no principle
is involved. "^ :'. '''-'\u25a0
But' we. can understand that^the Home Market club of Boston
has cold chills creeping up and'down its corporate and sees
revolution in the^ air, conspiracies and- midnight) assassins stabbing
the tariff In the back because these grave -and reverend Bostonians
see the tariff with back arid'' sides '-and; belly, "especially the last.

'/~*\ HICAGO is troubled about^mahy things, for. the' moment
I is chiefly agitated by a perplexity of. feminine iripperiesi fal-lals
\_J and furbelows. Because; the first ; place,-;the artists who
steer the "tempestuous Marcel wave in the way nt should go
have struck for higher wages; and there are symptoms on*one \u25a0 hand
of a boycott and on the other of a crusade to be waged; with more
than feminine asperity. Indeed,- we, learn from a\"hair: professor"-^
possibly connected with a rival process— that the. Marcel wave will>
do the following things: , ;. '

According to the statements of rail
roadmen., who keep in touch with trans
portation* matters in Nevada, 'J. Ross
Clark is -Quite" a disturbing element.' for
he has cut freight rates throughout the
whole' Nevada district by 25 .to' 3o per
cent, and ; the Southern,' Pacific "and
Brock: lines have had to do likewise.
Clark's object is to build up the Los An
geles trade and to secure this he is/ex
tending his road 75 miles from Beatty
to Goldfleld, paralleling the Brock road.
Clark's" line will- be completed about
September 15 and will give Goldrteld an
18 hour; communication i with Los An
geles. .Later *on ~ Clark' will extend
the Hne;tOiTonopah. ;; Brock is not idle,
either, and- he is contemplating build
ing hi?; line ; 200 miles to Ely; to con
nect with the = Nevada Northern road,
which ,' is owned by the Guggenhelms.
Schwab, -- too, is going to -build from
Goldale on, the Brock line to Saline val
