The house was thinly occupied, scarcely more than seventy members being in their seats. Ambassador Tower and Sec ond Secretary Garrett of the American embassy were alone in the diplomatic gallery. The chancellor said that the impe rial government asked the reichstag to authorize the application of the treaty rates to the United' States not as aright under the most favored na tion interpretation, but in order that the negotiations pending' might still be conducted to a satisfactory end and because it was in the interest of both countries to avoid a tariff war. The chancellor said he placed a high value on good political relations between Germany and the United States, which were a blessing to^ both lands, but it would be deceptive"to believe that he would buy political, .friendship by the sacrifice of Germany's economic inter ests. The grounds of the govern ment's proposals were that a tariff wax% which must only be resorted to in case of necessity, would damage not only Germany's shipping interests but other important departnientsivof indus try. Although the United States" would be injured in its exports, which had grown considerably, the advantage of such a war would rest with a third country. The chancellor presumably meant Great Britaiu. Regarding the length of the period of the tariff arrangement the chan cellor said that a longer time might have the appearance of a definite set tlement, while a shorter one would not afford time for overcoming the difficul ties in the way of a commercial treaty. He reminded the reichstag that Ger many's negotiation of treaties with other states had not always progressed smoothly and had extended over long periods. "We are therefore forced," said the chancellor, "to ask parliament to con sent to this proposal so that we may continue in peace with the United States. The note of the American secretary of state, Mr. Root, to Am bassador Sternburg on Tuesday shows that the United States has the same desire for friendly commercial and political relations that we have."' TWISTS TH E LION'S TAIL. President Castro After British Inter ests in Venezuela. Willemstad, Island of Curacao, Feb. 23.A well informed official of Ca racas, in a letter received hero during the day, says that President Castro, encouraged in his war against foreign ers by the fact that the United States and PYance have taken no action against Venezuela, has given orders to prepare the documents to institute legal, proceedings against the La Guayra harbor corporation and the La Guayra and Caracas railroad.
