Acting un der the law, the State board of arbi tration and conciliation formally re quested the mill agents and the Tex tile Council of this city to submit the question of a wage increase in the cot ion mills in the city to arbitration, tc avoid a strike next Monday. Both sides have the request under consider ation. Very slight hope, however, is entertained by the citizens of Lowell that the State board's request will be granted. The mill agents repeatedly have expressed their opinions that a wage increase is impossible and the textile council having in view last years' result of a civic board of arbi tration has said since receiving the re quest that it did not care to be trap ped as they say they were last year, when after a strike was declared off nothing was done to advance their in terests. flay Be Hanged.

TREATY ISWTIFIED The Cuban Senate Accb Without Argument, ADOPTED WITHOUT CONDITIONS. Approved By the Senate By a Vota of 12 to 9 -The Question of a Time Limit Dispensed With. Havana, By Cable. The. reciprocity betwcea Cuba treaty of and the Lnite! States as amended by the Sen ate of the? United States, was ap proved at 8 o'c lc 1: Saturday night, in tin? Cuban Senate, bv a vote of 12 to approval not hampered by any conditions, the limit having been j questionable, tinit dispensed with the cahle m Hay, in whic h through the receipts ssaR' irom Secretary it vas pijsitivciy de clared that President Roosevelt would .ill a special session of Congress. 1 he purport of this assurance was i transmitted to the Senate by Pre.d- 1 (b-nt I ilma and read at the beginning session, an undorstandinji hav- the int"; been reached previously with Senators Iiustamente. Capote and Doiz. comnosin-r the maioritv of the fo'ei.sn relations committee with he objectionable condition in the report b. :ng eliminated. This was done by the offering of amendments by other ocrninistration Senators substituting the unconditional adoption of the amendments to the treat v by the Sen ate. The final action was delayed for a i u;ng lime uy tne discussion or an intendment offered by Senators San iiil!y, Tainayo and Iteeio, requiring the public to pass upon the treaty. This was voted down, 5 to 15. An amendment to substitute for the committee's report was then offered by Senators Frias, Monteagudo and Retaiicourt. This approved and rati fied all the amendments cf the Senate at "Washington and recommended that the Cuban executive take action conducive to obtaining effective re ciprocity as soon as possible. To this substitute waa added the following: "This recommendation must not be taken as an amendment or a modifi-cati-on of the treaty." Senator Bustamente announced their satisfaction at the outcome. The chief contention of the committee was the action of the American Con gress. Senator Sanguilly, in a long and impassioned speech against the rati fication of the treaty, impressively pictured the gradual absorption of Cuba by the United State, in which he said the present action was one step. He argued that it was disgrace ful for Cuba to be a party to such a scheme. Senator Bustamente, in a brief and able final speech, cited various incidents of history to show that neither weak or wicked nations n ake commercial treaties, and pre dicted with certainty the results in this case. The vote was taken separ ately in each section of the substi tute report. The vote on the uncon ditional ratification of the treaty was 12 to 9; on the recommendation to the. executive it was 11 to 9. The present session of the Senate then adjourned. The ratification will be exchanged by cable. Strlks Fatalities. St. Petersburg, By Cable.

The rioters stormed the house and smashed in the doors and windows. The mayor, with a force of gendar mes and a detachment of troop3. then arrived on the scene and ordered the rioters to disperse.

The Irish Secretary Introduces the Government Land Bill Into PrilUh House of Commons. London. Uy Cable Th Irish S ro tary. Mr. Wyndham. introdu..-d the government'-s long-antic! pat -d IrUh land bill in the House of Commons Wednesday afternoon. It proposes a grant of JGO.OOO.GOO for the puriosa of the bill. Tenants ar to pay 3 pr cent, interest on loans from tb gov ernment. Mr. WynJham taij he thought the scheme would not involve over $300,000,000. but that $730.00) ('0 could be safely advanced on Irish lan I. Advances to tenants are limited to $2.- 500 in the congested districts and $5.- 000 elsewhere. The bill also provides i that untenanted farms and grazing land shall be sold to neighboring ten ants and that thiee commissioners to be known as estate commissioners thall supervise the sales. The name of tte three commissiontrs are Michael Fin aune, secretary to the government's Bengal general and statistical depart ment; Frederick S. French, one of the Irish land commissioners, and William F. Bailey, one of the assistant-commis sioners on the Irish land commission. They will be under the general control of the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. They will become effective November 1st. The keen interest felt in this new legislation, which it is hoped will pro mote peace and contentment in Ire land, was shown by the crowded House. The peers gallery and the distinguish ed strangers' gallery were filled and there has been no such gathering of members of Parliament since the open ing of the session. In the diplomatic gallery sat United States Secretary Henry White, an interested spectator, while almost every Irish peer listened to Mr. WTyndham's exposition of the bill. From an early hour this morning, the stone benches from the Honse of Commons entrance to the doors of the lobby, were packed with impatient irisnmen, among whom were many presidents. Most of there went away without even seeing the inside of the legislative chamber, the galleries of which were crowded as has not been the case for many a day. Michael Davitt, the "father" of the Land League, celebrated his 57th birthday by re-entering the House for the first time since he ceased to be a member, in or der to hear the Chief Secretary for Ire land unfold his plans. For the most, part the Liberal mem bers sat glum, the applause coming from the Irish benches. A hush of ex pectation fell on the assembly as Joha Redmond, the Irish leader, rose to speak. If he refused to countenance the bill, its death and perhaps even the government'3 downfall, was de creed. When the galleries of the House found him sympathetic and non-committal, a feeling of relief pervaded all sides. What Sir Henry Campbell Banncrman, the Liberal leader, and the others said had little effect. T. W. Russell, who with others criticised the details and various omissions In Mr. Wyandham's plan, wound up with a guttural and reluctant admission that "it is a great bill." The passage of the first reading of the bill was followed by the rush td the lobby, where ensued scenes that might well make the ghost of farnell turn in his grave. The tall form of Lord Dudley, Lord Lieutenant of Ire land, could be seen amidst a crowd of Nationalists, who scarcely a year ago would rather have suffered anything than discussed with the official head of the Irish party any question. Beside Lord Dudley stood the grizzled little Sir Anthony McDonnell, the First Na tional Assistant Irish Secretary. Mr. Wyandham, who was heartily cheered when he arose to speak in the House, announced at the outset that the government thought cash aid was necessary for the fulfillment of the pro posed scheme, but it attached greater importance to the credit operation than to the cash operation. He then unfolded the scheme, which provides for advances of money for the pur chase of land by the tenants. The ad vances will be in the shape of cash and not of stock, but in order to enable the cash to be raised a new stock is to be floated. It will be called "guaran teed" 2 per cent, stock and will be redeemable for 30 years. Mr. Wynd ham doubted if $300,000,000 of the stock would be needed. It will be issued at the rate of $25,000,000 yearly for the first three years and afterwards possi bly in larger sums. In addition to this the government proposed a free grant of $60,000,000 to be saised by additions to the stock, the interest and sinking fund which will be borne by the Treasury, and the maximum annual charge of which will not exceed $1, 950,000. Against this charge on the British Treasury the Irish government proposes rortnwitn to commence re- j ductions in the cost of administration amounting to $1,250,000 per annum for ever. Wsnts Heavy Damages. Winchester, Special. In the Circuit Court, in session In this city, S. H. Braithwaite was given $1,200 damages against Charles E.
