IN INTERESTS OF COMMERCE.
International Confpres* Adopts Se
ries of Resolutions.
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. I.— The Inter
national Commercial Congress has
adopted the following resolutions:
Declaring the assimilation of trade
mark laws to a common standard is
nece-sary for the full protection of com
merce, and that all nations members of
the union created by the convention for
the protection of industrial property con
cluded at Paris, March 20, 1883, may, with
great advantage to their commercial in
terests, become members of the sub
union created by the agreement of
Recommending that the congress of the
United States, and all other governments
not new possessing a parcel post system,
be requested to establish euch a system.
Declaring it to be most desirable that
as far as practicable trade statistics of
all countries shcu d be assimilated for
purposes of accurate comparison.
Requesting the United Slates govern
ment and other nations to cons.der the
subject of establishment by the commer
cial nations of the world of an Inter
national bureau for the collection and
dissemination of agricultural reports of
the nations as to their cereals.
Requesting the delegates to this con
gress to mc ude in their reports to the'r
respective governments and chambers of
commerce a special recommendation
tending to enlist the active co-operation
of said gove;nm<nts and commercial
bodies in furthering the ends and objects

Declaring it to be the consensus of the
judgment of the representatives that
there should be placed on record an
earnest desire to secure lasting peare

among nations shall be submitted
Declaring that the International Com
mercial Congress heartily Indorses and
urges the construction of an inter
oceanic canal on the Western hemis
phere, at the earliest possible moment.
The resolutions adopted Oct. 18, which
placed the International Congress in the
position of urging upon the United Stat a
the propriety of granting greater privi
leges to Canadian ships, and reducing
tariff rates now imposed by the United
States on Canadian products, were ex
punged, as were all the other resolutions
adopted In the early sessions.
The congress, which has been In ses
sion here since Oct. 12, today finally ad
journed. The last day's proceedings were
devoted almost entirely to the exchange
of courtesies and leave takings.
Tolerated by Hasbandg Who Do Not
Like to Be Bored.
Foodie is the name given on yonder side
of the water to what Is sometimes here
described as the "tame cat" of an estab
lishment—that is, the only recognized ad
mirer of the lady of the house, whose
devotion to her is tolerated alike by hus
band and by society because it is known
to be harmless and platonlc. It is a cus
tom which has been imported into Eng
land from the continent, where the ad
mirer in question is known as the "ca
vallere servente," and today in Great
Britain, as everywhere on the mainland
of Europe, all women with any preten
sion to fashion and to society have their
Poodles of this kind seldom, if ever, fig
ure In the divorce court. The women re
gard them as all very well to fetch and
carry for them, to aot as their escort,
to entertain them, to give them flowers,
etc., but they would never dream of com
promising themselves for the sake of a
poodle. The poodie is usually a single
man, with enough money to enable him
to live a life of leisure. His poodledom
furnishes him with a nice house, where he
feels at home, and where he can go with
out any formal invitation, no matter
whether it is in town or in the country.
Single men get dreadful tired of men's
society and find great relief in that of a
pretty, brilliant, witty woman.
Besides, it is so very convenient for
the husband. The poodte saves him no
end of trouble, acts as his wife's escort
everywhere and serves as a sort of light
ning conductor for all ill humors. In
fact, today poodledom has become such
a recognized social Institution in Europe
that it Is only the evil-minded and the
people without any experience of the
world who see any harm in it.
Nothing is more amusing than to watch
the attitude of the husband toward the
wife's poodle. His manner is character
ized by a sort of mingled condescension,
patronage, just a touch of contempt, and
a dash of gratitude. His pride wouM be
hurt were he to see the young woman
bearing his name without all those little
attentions of which a fashionable woman
stands in need, and yet which he would
consider a bore If obliged himself to

BUILDING " OLLAPSED.
Three Men Dead and Several Others
Are Mlastnff .
CHICAGO. Nov. 1— Three are known
to have died and three others are re
ported missing as the result of the col
lapse of a six-story building at 139 and
141 West Lake street this evening. Con
siderable damage was done to adjoining
property, and during the excitement it
was reported that as many as forty lives
had been lost. About $200,000 damage was
done. F. S. Hanson, proprietor of the
New England mills, 145 West Lake street,
was buried beneath the debris. The miss
ing are: Henry Hilton, bookkeeper for
Hanson, caught in the falling walls and
supposed to have perished; Joseph Doc
tor, employed by Hanson, could not be
found after the walls fell; Charles Mul
lin, a peddler, was in Hanson's place and
not seen again.
Several persons had narrow escapes
from death, and two were Injured. They
were: Patrick Beeton, hurled from the
store of the New England mills to the
street and badly bruised; W. E. Adams,
proprietor of the saloon and boarding
house, 145 Lake street, struck by falling
The cause of the collapse Is unknown,
some claiming there was an explosion in
the store of S. F. Leonard, dealer in
seeds, or saying that the walls fell with
out apparent cause. The generally ac
cepted theory is that there was an explo
sion of dust in the seed store.
A number of young girls and two men
were at work at the time and a panic fol
lowed in their efforts to escape. The two
men smashed the windows and in that
way rescued the girls.
Joseph B. Doctor, barn foreman for the
New England Milling company, was
caught in the front part of the building
at the time of the explosion and his body
recovered by the firemen. Franklin 'S.
Hanson, proprietor of the New England
Milling company. Is dead; his body was
removed by firemen, badly burned. Hen
ry Hilton, bookkeeper for the New Eng
land Milling company, is dead; body un
der the wreckage near where that of his
employer was recovered.
The missing are Charles Mullens, ped
dler, purchasing feed -in the salesroom of
the mill, and last seen struggling- to reach
an exit after the Leonard building had
collapsed, and burled- in the ruins of the
mill; thought by gome to have escaped;
an unidentified woman, said to have been
caught by the portion of the Leonard
building wall that fell into the street and
buried beneath the debris; C. Williams,
address not known; employe of the Leon
ard Seed company; not yet accounted for.
ROPE MAKERS OF TONDO.
Primitive Machinery lued in an Im
portant llilli;>i>iii<- Industry.
Of all the ropemakers of Tondo there
is none so happy and jolly as Crispo, the
hunchback. His laugh is co hearty that
It can be heard from one end of the
twirling strands to the other, and some
times that is a full eighth of a mile.
Every day when there is no rain he is
seen with his fellows. Sometimes he is
twirling the reel and feeding the hemps
to the lengthening strand. When his reel
is full he begins again, or winds the
strand off upon another reel of larger
size. All the While he is- humming a tune,
sometimes one of the tuires the American
bands play on the plaza, and again the
songs of his home.
Crispo lives in one of the little nipa
houses that hug the railroad track. It
does not amount to much, as far as
architecture »oes, But it is his home and
he is happy there withr his family and
hid guitar. Crispo i^ married and he has
children about him that are as straight
as children grow. At night they listen
to his songs, as he twangs his guitar and
sings to them in the. Talalog tongue about
the ancient and chivalrous days. Often
he tells them stories ofe. the ghosts that
ride in white boats on the bay at night
when there is a storm upon the waters.
Ropemaking is an industry at which
many work. The machinery used Is prim
itive, but the finished article the workers
turn out is smooth^and strong. There is
no way of Cheating m this work. The
hemp comes in bales, as it leaves the
plantations. It is taken out to the street,
where the work ls done and where the
spools are, for the first process. Time
and practice are needed to learn the
knack of keeping the reel going around
by a simple twist of the wrist. The
operator backs slowly away as the
strands grow in length, and when he
has gone as far as he deems necessary
he begins to wind up all the cord that
he has spun.
For the next operation twelve spools of
this cord and another machine are used.
The machine has twelve cranks at one
end and two on the other. When the
strands are laid, if the rope is to be a
long- one, supports are erected about fifty
feet apart. These are to keep the strands
from twisting and tangling as they are
spun about. Two men stand at the upper
end of the walk and face the man who is
turning the twelve strands. Each has
two cone-shaped pieces of wood in his
hands, and in these cones are six groves,
through which the -strands run. The
operator at the strand end turns his
wheel to the right and the men at the
other end revise the operation. The
strands begin to twist and grow smaller
and harder, and at last the two men with
the cones start . wltjj, fheir toes. In front
are twelve Ptrands.^ Behind the advanc
ing operators are tyo.. \U ls a slow walk
from one end to the/othejc, and it is hard
work to keep the whirling and
the machinery going untfl the two ropes
are complete. Whyj, aU.Js done the fin

Boers and to the Bmall British army in
Natal, which, against fearful odds, has
performed magnificent- featß of valor. It
is not the time to caM our opponents
names or to utter cries- of vengeance,
but to back up her majesty's ministers,
who have a fearful — yes, on awful — re
sponsibility upon their shoulders."
The Earl of Cardington, Liberal, speak
ing at Buckingham, gave expressions to
virtually the same convictions.
The Earl of Lonsdale, honorary cotonel
of the Third battalion, Border regiment,
at a banquet this evening at White Ha
ven, declared his confidence In Gen. Sir
George Stewart White, the British com
mander in Natal', and predicted a grand
review in Pretoria next March. Refer
ring to Emperor William's celebrated tel
egram to President Kruger at the time
of tho failure of the Jameson raid, Lord
"If his majesty's dispatch had been
rightly understood, it would hay& had a
totally different aspect. It was sent with
a view of allaying two sores. It was not
antagonistic to Great Britain. I have the
pleasure to know the views of the Ger
man emperor, and they are In accordance
with the views of England. "
Lord Roseberry. toasting "The Army
and Navy," at a banquet given this even
ing by the lord provost of Edinburgh to
the officers of the Gordon Highlanders
and the Scots Guards, referring to the
reverse in Natal, said:
"It is much to be regretted, but in a
considerable campaign we must look out
for such incidents. If is not in the nature
of Britons to take much notice of them.
AYe have had a good many of the same
kind, and have generally got out right in
the end But, whatever happens, we
must see this thing through, even though
it would cost still more battalions and
still more millions.
"Some day there will be an inquisition
as to the preparations made for this war,
but the time for that is not now. Our
duty now is to support those who have
the direction of the affairs."
Gen. White. Detailed Report of It

LONDON. Nov. 1.-The British war of

ceived from Gen. White describing the
operations of Monday. It Is as follows:
"Ladvsmlth Oct 31.— Took out from
Lalyfmfth 1 a brigade of mounted l troops
two brigade divisions of the Royal ar
tfflery, the Natal field battery and two
brigades of Infantry to reconnoiter in
force the enemy's main position to the
north and if the opportunity should offer

held in strength by the enemy In con
nection with this advance, a column con.

four half companies of the Gloucester,
and. six companies of the Royal Irish
Fusileers, the whole under Lieut. Col.
Carlton and Maj. Adye, j*eP u Jy "^Wi
adjutant general, was dispatched at 11
p. m. on the 29th to march by night up
Bell's Spruit and seize Nioholson s Nek,
or some position near Nicholson s iNeK,
thus turning the enemy's right flank.
The main advance was sucessfully car
ried out, the objective of the attack be
ing found evacuated, and an artlllory
duel between our field batteries and the
enemy's guns of the position and Maxims
is understood to have caused heavy loss
to the enemy. The reconnaissance forced
the enemy to fully disclose his position,
and, after a strong counter attack on
our right, the infantry brigade and
cavalry had been repulsed, the troops
were slowly withdrawn to camp, pickets
being left on observation. Late in tn«
engagement the naval contingent, under
Capt. Lambton, of H. M. S. Powerful,
came into action and silenced, with their
extreme accurate fire, the enemy's gun.
"The circumstances which attended the
movements of Lieut. Col. Carlton' s col
lumn are not yet fully known, but from
reports received, the column appeals to
have carried out the night march unmo
lested, until within two miles of Nichol
son's Nek. At this point two boulders
rolled from the hill and a few rifle ohots
stampeded the infantry ammunition
mules. The stampede spread to the bat
tery mules, which" broke loose from th«lr
leaders and got away with practically the
whole of the gun equipment, and the
greater portion of the regimental smill
arm ammunition. The reserve was Bimi
larly lost. The Infantry battalion, how
ever, fixed bayonets, and, accompanied
by the personnel of artillery, seized a
hill on the left of the road, two miles
from the Nek, with but little opposition.
There they remained unmolested till
dawn, the time being occupied in organ
izing the defense of the hill and con
structing stone sangers and walls as cov
er from fire.
"At dawn a skirmishing attack on our
Eositlon was commenced by the enemy,
ut made no way until 9:30 a. m., when
strong reinforcements enabled them to
rush the attack with great energy. Their
fire became very searching and two com
panies of the Gloucesters, in an advanced
position, were ordered to fall back. Th«
enemy then pressed to short range, the
losses on our side becoming very num
erous. At 3 p. m., our amunition was
practically exhausted, the position was
captured, and the survivors of the column
fell In the enemy's hands. The enemy
treated our wounded with humanity, Gen.
Joubert at once dispatching a letter to
me, offering a safe conduct to doctors and
ambulances to remove the wounded. A
medical officer and parties to render first
aid to the wounded were dlspatrhed to
the scene of action from Ladysmith last
night, and the ambulance at dawn this

Issued the following additional list of
fifty-eight casualties sustained by Gen.
Yule's force, from the time of the battle
of Glencoe until it joined the force of
Sir George White; King's rifles, four kill

A careful calculation of the British
losses in all engagements since the out

ties among the non-commissioned officers
and men in Monday's disaster at Lady

BERLIN, Nov. I.— The Neuste Nach
ricfrten, in the course of an article evi
dently inspired, says:
"Germany has no intention of playing
into the hands of France by intervening
in the Transvaal. She intends to pursue
a course of absolute neutrality."
Replying to the anti-Semitic, pan-Ger
manic outcry against the emperor's ex
pected visit to England, the Neuste Nach
"Although Germans individually may
disapprove of England's policy, the ac
tions of the emperor must be dictated by
Germany' s interests, which do not allow
her unnecessarily to arouse bad feeling in
England. It would be a great mistake to
prejudice German interests to South
Africa by a one-sided attitude, in view
of the future reorganization of the pol
itical situation there. Moreover, the
greatest sea power and the greatest land
power have every reason to co-operate In
union and harmony."
