(By Telegraph to Virginian-Pilot.) Washington, D. C, July 21.?The long pending reciprocity treaty negotia? tions between the United .states and France were brought to a successful ? lose at the State Department late this afternoon, when Ambassador Cambon, in behalt of France, and Commissioner Knsson, in behalf of the United States, affixed their signatures to the treaty. It is by far ihe most important treaty concluded under the reciprocity provis? ions of il\e Dlngley law anil the only "?lte affeettng tile ItMlle Witll a large commercial nation. The negotiations were marked by rather sharp and long ' continued discussions, which continued up to the time the signatures wore placed on the document. In tho end a spirit of compromise prevailed and each ?nie yield- .1 something. As a whole both sides express satisfaction witii tin- gen? eral resudts secured, for while the compromise necessitated some minor sacrifices the general effect of the treaty will encourage commerce be? tween the two countries. CONCESSIONS FROM FRANCES. The concessions granted by France embraced most of the articles tn what is known ns the French minimum tnr i Iff. This comprises 641 heads, the rates being on nn average about "JO per cent, below those in the general tariff of France. It was found necessary, liow ? vor, owing to protests from French agrarian Interests to except from this minimum list about 24 articles, chielly agricultural products. The French min? istry was obliged to pay heed to this sentiment and in turn M. Cumbon made the exceptions a condition of closing the treaty. It was on this point that the negotiations were in doubt for seve? ral days, nnd it was only by compro? mising on the extent of the exceptions that an agreement was made possi? ble. AX IMPORTANT TREATY. Reside the reductions given to this country the treaty is Important in con? tinuing a number of minimum rates, which would have been abolished if the treaty had not been concluded. The most important of tluse articles are petroleum and mineral oils. At present these oils enter France on the minimum rate, but had to-day's treaty failed a rate would have been Imposed, making a difference of duty amounting to about $5,000,000. The same is true an to cot? ton, which is one of the chief articles of shipment from the United States to France, and enters duty free. Had the treaty failed a heavy duty woutd have been impeded upon American cotton. The same is true of copper, rubber, and many classes of machinery. CONCESSIONS TO FRANCE. France secures Important concessions on over one hundred of the chief pro 'lllrls "on I'm-- '??Minify The Dlngley law allows not to exceed 20 per cent, reduction as* a basis of reciprocity, but the full 20 per cent. Is not allowed on all the articles covered by the tr.-.ity. On sonie of them the re? duction is live per cent., on others ten. and others 15 and up to 20 per cent. Tin- list would have been larger, and tlic per centage of reduction greater in some casts had it not been for the re? luctance of Commissioner Kosson to permit exceptions from the French minimum list. This was tho main cause leading up to the omission of cham? pagne from the list of Important French products included in the treaty. While finite desirous of securing a re? duction of duly on this class of wines the French authorities were not ready to grant the large number of reduc? tions asked as an offset for the pro? posed reduction nn this particular ar? ticle. As a result the regular rales will be maintained on the sparkling wines coming to this country. EQUALITY WITH OTHER COUN? TRIES, The treaty will result in placing the products of the United States on the eta me basis in France a s products of Oreat Britain and Germany. At pres? ent these countries have the minimum French rate, while the American goods, with few exception?, have had to pay the maximum rate. The negotiations ended to-day were begun nearly two years ago by M., Patenotre, then Ambassador from France. TREATY WORK CLOSED. The French treaty Is :he last of the instruments of this kind, and the treaty work under the Dingley act Is now brought ton close. Six treaties have been made, all. save that with France, relating to British West India Islands. REVOLT AGAINST GOEBEL. A LARGELY ATTENDED DEMO? CRATIC MEETING REPUDI? ATES HIS CANDIDACY. fBy Telegraph to Virginia-Pilot.) Bowling Green, Ky., July 24.?Tho antl-Goebel meeting here to-day was largely attended. Ex-Congressman w. [ C.

The meeting adopted resolutions condemning thei movement inaugurated by so-called Democrats in Eastern States to aban? don the principled of the Chicago plat? form ami endorsing William Jennings Bryan for President, and charging thai the State convention In Louisville, which, nominale 1 Goebel, "was per? verted from its true purpose by <. : - -rtiptlon. fraud and force, by intrigue *ind treachery, by infam-us rulings of the acting chitirman, th< reby setting at naught the time honored principle of Democracy tbal the will of the ma? jority Of the people shall be the gov? erning power." The resolutions deny tii.it the ticket is entitled to pr should receive the sup? port of the party in this State.

It Is known now that the Senator will'not allow a primary for the expression of a choice . for Senator in a single county In the State. He is imposed to the principle. While it is known that he Is as strong" in this oily as anywhere In the Stnte, he would not allow the City Committee to permit the people to vote on Gov? ernor Trier and hims-lf. If he con? sented to a primary In a Martin county he would have to have urimaries In anti-Martin counties. He knows he cannot won thai way. His return to the Senate Is about the most remotely ? possible thing conceivable If the people are allowed to settle the mutter.
