Thousands of persons thronged the streets to watch the mysterious visitor. The nil-ship remained over the city for 13 minutes, all the time at a height that most observers set at about 2000 feet, too great to enable even its pre cise shape to be seen.

Another probable marine disaster off the coast of Wash ington was recorded today, when the Japanese steamer Kaga Maru reported to the wireless station at Cape Beal that the American schooner Susie M.

French Tariff Seriously Affects Ameri can Oil Products. Washington, Dec. 24. Alarmed by a drop from $1,000,000 to $26,303 in min eral oil exports to France in amonth, American oil exporters have begun a movement to induce congress to renew with the French government the reci procity treaty that expired on October i. exporters also hope for the re newal of the treaty with Spain, a largo importer or American oil, which will expire on August 31, 1910. Exports to Canada under the opera tion of tho now tariff law have not been compiled by the bureau of statistics of the department of commerce and labor, mit indications are that they will show relatively as great a falling off in oil exports as those to France. Notwithstanding the abrogation of tne reciprocity treaty with France, re ports to the bureau for November, the first month under the new order of things, show larger totals in both im ports and exports than in the corre sponding month of last year. Raw cot ton, which is imported into France free of duty, and hence is not affected by the tariff changes, is largely responsible for the increase in exports, while art works 20 years old and over, admitted free under the new law, and diamonds and hides were responsible for the in creased imports. The falling off in imports of chain pagno from France, due to the in creasod. tariff, was most marked, declin ing from $.r)84,074 in November, 1908, to oa,uua in JNOvember, lu.
