STANLEY ELECTED PRESIDENT. -Senate Will Be Asked to Ratify Treaties Providing for Reciprocal Relations With Foreign Countries. Organization Is Non-Partisan , Chicago , April 11. Representatives -of CO lending manufacturing and other 'industrial establishments of the Unit ed States met hero yesterday and or ganized the National Hsclproclty league. W. E. Stanley , governor of Kansas , was elected president. The object of the organization , which Is non-partisan , is to wage a campaign of education concerning the "urgent need of reciprocal trade relations with foreign nations. " In a word , these manufacturers say they are manufact uring in excess of the consumption of the homo market. They want the United States government to establish trade relations with other countries that will throw open the markets of Jf- the world for the disposal of their .goods. The United States senate will "bo asked to ratify at least nine treaties that provide for reciprocal arrange ments in the trade relationship of the United States and various countries of the eastern hemisphere. M. B. Hulet of Topeka , Kan. , was chosen secretary of the new league , and B. 13. Swift of Chicago treasurer. A na tional convention of the league will be called for the near future , probably at Chicago. Resolutions Adopted. Resolutions were reported by a spe cial committee and unanimously adopt- d as follows : "Resolved , That the doctrine that there should be no modification of tlie tariff , which involves any Injury to any home Industry , permits each industry - dustry to be sole judge whether such modification will cause Injury , pre vents all reform in existing trade laws , however beneficial to the people in general such reform would be , and subordinates the Interests of the many to that of the few , In place of which wo propose broad , liberal commercial regulations beneficial to the people of the whole couhtry. "Resolved , That the reciprocal treaties negotiated by Minister Kas- son , under the direction and with the approval of President McKlnley , . should be promptly ratified as bene ficial to the interests of the people of this country and that further treaties along the same lines ought to be nego tiated with other nations. "Resolved , That no matter what may bo done with reciprocity treaties with other countries , a liberal treaty should be promptly negotiated with Cuba , which is virtually a ward of the United States , the present duties on Cuban products being unjustly much higher than the average duties on the products of other countries. "Resolved , finally , That the Inter ests of an active minority should not prevail over those of a passive major ity , and that In making traffic and spe cial treaties with other nations , the interests of American industries , and of the American people as a whole ought to be considered. " P. B. Thurber , chairman of the for- elgn relations committee of the Now York chamber of commerce ; Charles I. Pavey of New York , who represented - ed the Cuban chamber of commerce in Its appeal for reciprocity ; J. A. Ar- bucfcle of St. Louis , Professor Edwin Maxey , of Madison , Wls. ; David B.
