At the meeting of the Pan-American conference Friday the report of the com mittee on the general welfare, recom mending the nations of Europe to adopt the policy of arbitration, came up for discussion. The question involves the controversy at present existing between England and Venezuela over the posses sion of gold lands in Guayana, and the navigation of the Orinoco. As the dis cussion progressed, differences were de veloped which bid fair to block the way to a conclusion unless much time should be consumed and unless some conces sions shall be made. Ulaine to the Rescue. Mr. Blaine, who had been absent at a cabinet meeting, came into the confer ence room late in the afternoon, when the controversy seemed far from a con clusion. He asked a recess, and then invited the committee on general wel fare to join him in considering the mat ter. Reces3 was had, and Mr. Blaine and the committee retired. They wero gone scarcely half an hour. Upon re turning Mr. Blaine asked Vice President Zegarra to preside, and then from the latter's place at the long table Mr. Blaine said: "Mr. President, I am. very happy to announce that any vital difference upon any question connected with the scheme of arbitration, whioh two hours ago might have been feared, is, I hope, en tirelv removed, and the resolutions of the honorable gentleman, Mr. Quintana, have been simply changed from being in perpetuity to run at even dates with the treaty of arbitration. So they stand and fall together. They are born to gether, and if they die they will die to gether; but we shall hope both their lives will be perpetual. Applause. I shall read the first, and as I read each one the gentleman opposite me, Mr. Cruz, the distinguished gentleman from Guatemala, willread the Spanish text: First That the principle of conquest shall not, during the oontiuuance of the treaty of arbitration, be recognized as admissible un der American public law. Second That all cessions of territory made during the continuance of the treaty of arbitration shall be void if made under threats of war or the presence of an armed force. Third Any nation from which such ces sions shall be exacted may dmnand that the validity of the cessions made shall be sub mitted to arbitration. Fourth Any renunciation of the right of arbitration made under the conditions named in the second section shall be nnll and void. These conditions are under threats of war or the presence of armed force. "If I may now make a short cut, par liamentary, I shall, with the concur rence of my honorable and highly valued friend on the right, Mr. Quintana, move that these be accepted as a substitute for the first, second, third and fourtli reso lutions of tho original text. I shall move, therefore and 1 hoie with the entire unanimity of the whole confer encethat those written clauses be sub stituted for those originally reported from the committee." Carried With Cheers. The Blaine substitute was put and car ried with acclamation and cheers, save from Chili, which did not vote. The business of the conference was thus ended. The work was done. Dr. Martinez Silva, of Colombia, had, however, a proposition to present. Its firovisions are that a Latin-American ibrary shall be founded in the the city of Washington, with contributions from the nations represented; that it shall lie known as the Columbus library; that in it shall be placed histories of the nations represented in the congress, also their geographies, maim and official docu ments; that the library shall be located by the United States in Washington, and that it shall be dedicated upon the anniversary of the centennial of the dis covery of America by Columbus. These propositions were embodied in a motion which prevailed without dissent. Delegate Mendonica, of Brazil, then moved that the Ijitin nations in the con ference prepare a tablet upon which should be inscribed, in each language spoken in the conference, the dates of opening and closing and the name of the conference. This should be placed in the room in the stale department, where the delegates were first convened. Adopted. Resolutions of thanks to Mr. Blaine and to the United States for courtesies and hospitalities were moved by Mr. Romero, of Mexico, and wcie enthusi astically adopted by the southern dele gates. Gen. Henderson, of Missouri, on be half of the United States delegates, then made a short speech in which he said that if any acrimony had characterized the debate in the closing conference, ho proposed that each delegate should for get it forever. If the United States had afforded their guests pleasure or profit the United States were profoundly glad. If they could have done more they would have been more glad. Ringing cheers greeted Mr. Henderson's remarks. On motion of Mr. C. N. Bliss, the con ference tendered a vote of thanks to the vice presidents, who are southerns, and upon motion of Mr. Clem. Studebaker, to sergeant-at-arms, Capt. John G. Bourke, and to his staff. American International Law. Before the supplementary report of the committee on general welfare, which led to the discussion referred to above, was taken up the conference had adopt ed another supplementary report from the same committee, expressing the wish that all controversy between the repub lics of America and the nations of Europe may be settled by arbitration. The report of the committee on inter national law was also submitted and adopted. The majority recommends the, adoption of the following principles of American international law. , First Foreigners are entitled to enjoy all the civil rights enjoyed by natives, and they shall be accorded all the benefits of said rights in all that is essential, as well as in the form or procedure, and the legal reme dies incident thereto absolutely in like man ner as aiid natives. Becond A nation has not recognized ir, favor of foreigners any other obligations oi responsibilities than those which are is favor of the natives, established in like easel by the constitution and the laws. Third Klvers which separate several states or which bathe their territory shall be open to the free navigation of the mer chant marine or ships of war of the rlpariat nations. Fourth This declaration shall not affect the jurisdiction nor the sovereignty of an) of the riparian nations either in time oi peace of war. On the question of adopting this re port the United States and Mearagus voted no. The conference then adjourned until Saturday. WEEKLY REVIEW OF TRADE. Grain, Pork Produots, Oil and Sugai Have Advanced Stocks Stronger. New York, April 21. R G. Dun S Company's weekly review of trade says A season of extraordinary speculation has set in. Grain, pork products, cotton, oil and sugar have advanced, the lattei in spite of tho proposal to remove the en tire duty, and spruce lumber, also, ic spite of the rapidly increasing interrup tion of building by eight-hour strikes. The general average of prices for com modities have advanced .8 of one pel cent, in a week, and 1.7 per cent, in three weeks. Stocks have also been stronger, and reports of trade which are influenced rather by prices at which goods are sold than by the volume of business transacted, are uniformly more cheerful. At the same time there is con tinued evidence of an actual increase over hist year in the volume of business transacted. Wheat was started upward by reports of injuries in winter wheat states. At New York the Bales have teen 124,000, 000 bushels, probably the largest week's transactions on record. Corn has ad vanced, "in sympathy," two and one fourth cents, and . oats ne- and three fourth cents. Oil has advanced four and one-half cents without known oc casion. Pork has risen $:3 per barrel. There is not a corresponding improve ment in the industrial condition. ' Wool lias lieen firmer at Boston, without change in price, and very dull and in active at New York and Philadelphia. In the goods market no improvement is seen. Cotton manufacture does not thrive tho better for the advance in the ma terial, with goods unchanged in price, and print cloths only U.ltc, for 6ls. The boot and shoe industry is clearly thriv ing, and leather and hides are both a shade firmer and in more active de mand. But the eight-hour strikes in many cities have already arrested many building operations, and are expected to extend so lliat the market for glass is already affected unfavorably, and also the demand for structural iron. The iron business shows no improvement. In steel rails large orders are pending, and it is thought thev can lie placed at ijitti. Bur iron is dull and depressed. Substantially all the reports from other cities give an encouraging record of the state of business. At Boston improve ment continues; retail dry goods trade is large, and causes better jobbing trade, and domestic hides are higher. At Phil adelphia there is especial activity in drugs and chemicals, and the past week was the lest for a long time in groceries Chicago reports the usual great increase in tho movement of grain and dressed beef, lake shipments of grain being double last year's, and dry goods sales fully eiiual to last year's, while clothing falls behind, but is fairly satisfactory. Collections there are generally good. St. Louis also notes improvement, fairly promnt collections, and expectations of a good spring trade. At nearly all west ern points similar favorable reports are made, and St. Paul notes that recent rains help farmers and seeding is going on rapidly. It is especially noteworthy that there is no serious monetary pressure any where. Money is quiet'and easy at Bos ton, easier at Philadelphia, and steady, with plentiful supplies, at Chicago, St. Louis, Milwaukee and Omaha, Cleve land and Detroit only reporting some closeness. Exports of products in March appear to have increased fully 5 per cent, over last year, and probably exceeded ex ports by $,,"!)0,0!.0, but thus far in April exports have fallen alsnit 19 par cent, below last year's at New York, while imports show an increase of lit 1-2 per cent. . The business failures occurring throughout the country during the past seven davs number 214, as compared with 209 last week. For the corre sponding week of last year the figures were 24ti, INSURING CHILDRENS' MVE3 Murder Preetleed by the rnts U Se cure the Insurance Mooey. London, April 21. The vigorous cru sade of the bishop of Peterlioro against the system of insuring children' live for the benefit of their parent! has mere ly revived a subject that has occasional ly come before the public, but dijpied in very horror. A former detective, who is now writing the reminiscences of his career, bluntly says that a child insured is a child deau, unless a miracle inter venes. In plain language the British Assur ance company says to 'its clients: "We know you will murder your children whom we take risks upon "if you can do it safely, but we have men on the watch who are paid to detect such crimes and will inatcn their cunning against yours." There is great competition in the life assurance business, and of course trade must go on nud sentiment must not be allowed to block the wheels of progress. 1 SEVERE i I GiTen Australia by England for Demanding Autonomy. If Given Independence Would She Keep It Long? She'd Be a Tempting Morsel for the Co lonial Appetite of Oermauy, or I ten Russia, Perhaps John Bull Mot Wor ried by Hit Discontented Children, fclt tnloy Leaves Paris for Hvu8.-1 . London, April 21. Another British dependency has been made to feel of how little importance it id to tho home government, or perhaps with what in difference its threats of severing the ties that bind it to the mother country are regarded. The Canadians actually thought that Great Britain would take tip arms against the United States because the latter broke up the business of the Cana dian seal fishers, and the inhabitants of Newfoundland demanded war at once with France about the rights to capture a few lobsters. Of course England had some difficulty in pacifying her bellicose colonists, and it is known that the Marquis of Salis bury flatly informed the discontented blue nose that their threats of demand ing autonomy or even absolute inde pendence were regarded with perfect placidity by the government. Treated 'Km Too Nice. Now Australia has come in for a se vere snubbing, nud the inhabitants of the western part of that . vast island are demanding autonomy very loudly, be cause their delegates were treated so cavalierly by parliament. Over four months ago the said delegates came to London full of their own importance and a scheme for confederation. After exhausting their patience and their purees it finally dawned upon the gen tlemen from the antipodes, that they were being made fools of, and that the house of commons had not the slightest idea of granting them the long expected hearing. Various fiery editorials have expressed the Australian's wrath, but the colonists know, aa England does, that Australia alone would be a tempting morsel for the colonial appetite of Germany, or, perhaps, even Russia, and it may be easily conceived what charms such a prospect would have for the most rabid autonomist. Stanley Goes to Brussels. Paris, April SL Mr. Henry M. Stan ley left here for Brussels Saturday morning. Before leaving ho said that he was in no way troubled by tho strictures of the French press, nor annoyed by the hostile attitude of the French Geographical society.

Depew Has Some thing to Say ou the Froblem. He Thinks Education and Sav ings Banks Would Solve It. Hew the Church In the Sun th Might tend a Helping Hand In the Great Work The Place for Home-Seekers Extract from m Speech Made Before an Alumni Asso ciation In New York City. New York, April 21. Chauncey M. Depew presided at the regular monthly meeting of the New York Association of the Yale Alumni, at Delrconico's, and made an impromptu speech upon the south, touching upon some of the things ho had seen during his recent trip tc Florida. In discussing the race problem he said education and accumulation would solve it, as it would remedy the evils of New York city's bad govern ment There are in New York, he thought, 100,000 persons as ignorant and illiterate as any negroes in the south. He heard more about Sherman's march to the sea and the Battle of Lookout Mountain during his trip than anything else. Shermans march, he believed, will live longer in the memories of the people of the south than any other ac complishment of the civil war. In relation to the negro question, M; Depew Buid: "The negro is not badly treated in the south so fur as his physical relation to the community in which he lives ia con cerned. If he leaves politics alone he is treated probably better than he is here, because he has opportunities in the south which he has not hero. One of the sad dest things that happen to me are visits of educated negroes to my office, who come to me complaining that there is nothing for an educated negro to do in New ork. There is a large section in the south who say, 'solve the race prob lem by picking the wliole population up and carry them to the islands of the sea, to Central America, to Africa.' But the more intelligent southern people the ones not moved by theories or by any sjieculation, but who are facing the problem of the de velopment of their state say the ne groes must stay. Eight-tenths of the community say, 'We cannot get along without them,' and then the question comes which . nine-tenths don't know how to solve; 'how to get along with them.' The two forces which seem to be working and they are the only two which are working for any solution of the question, are education and the ac quisition of property. Education is rapidly solving the problem in the way and at the same time throwing difficul ties in another way. Supplement educa tion with the church and the negro is immensely susceptible to Christian influ ence ana force upon him moral influ ences which oome from the sentiment of the community which sits down upon and frowns upon anything not of a high moral character, and add to that the ac quisition of proHrty, and wherever that exists I find the problem solved. "A man with 13,000 can go to the leg islature and sit in the municipal council. They ore happy to liave him do it. They have confidence in him. But the diffi culty is in accumulating money, for in money matters the negro trusts nobody. I believe it to be the imperative duty of this government to establish a postal savings bank in every post-office' in the south. Applause. 1 believe that a system with a provision for interest to encourage to dejiosits should be formu lated, so that the negro of the south who has $1 will, instead of going without work until that dollar is spent, deposit it in a savings bank and redouble his work to get a no her dollar to add to it. Ap plause. In closing Mr. Depew said; "The net result of this visit to the south, to my mind is just this, that the south is the bonanza of the future. We have devel oped all the great and sudden oppoituni ttes for wealth, or most of them, in our northwestern states, and on the Pa cific slope. But here, 1 say vast coun try, with the beet climate in the world, with conditions of health which are ab solutely unparalleled, with vast forests untouched, with enormous veins of coal and iron, which have not known any thing bevond their original conditions, with soil, that under proper cultivation, for ljttle capital, can support a tremen dous population; with conditions in the atmosphere for comfortable living, win ter and summer, which exist nowhere else in the country; and that Is to be the attraction for the young men, who, ?:oing out from the farms to seek other arms, and in the settlement not by im migration from abroad for I d not think that that will go that way but by the Internal immigration from our own country it is to become in time, and In our time, as prosperous as any other sec tion of the country, and as prosperous by a purely American development." loud and prolonged cheers.
