Nor. 13. The Relchstsg adopted today, by 192 to 71 votes, the paragraph of the new tariff authorizing the government (to retaliate on any country discriminating against German goods. The agTarlant openly affirmed that It was neceessry to arm the government with weapona for re prisal, especially against the United Btatea customs practices. Dr. Brumer, national liberal, cited an In stance In which be aald 1200,000 worth of enameled goods were ordered In Germany for New York, but the speaker asserted the customs officials "changed the classlflca. tlon at the Instance of the American trusts, whereupon the New York importer can celled the order." "It waa proved to the customs officials," aald Dr. Brumer, "that the Invoice waa In exact accord with the Oerman seller's book and that tnatead of the goods being undervalued the books showed that shipments bad been made to India at still lower pricea. Dictated by Traata. Dr. Brumer further aaserted that the customs officials treatment was dictated by the Interests of the home manufacturers, and ha continued: ' It la said that we must not offend the I 'United Elates, but they will respect us more (and wc shall (tain more by showing our rf.ee th than by always giving pleasant words, Herr Qotheln, radical liberal, replied that such words were no fitting epilogue to the entlmenta ezpreased by Count Posadowskl, the home secretary, In the presence of the foreign secretary, Baron von Rlchthoffen, at Ambassador White's farewell dinner. "They will make discord," ba continued. ("among the wishes spoken there tor ifrlendly relations with the United States. (Why empower this government to do some thing It does not want to do?

I The Associated Press Is authorlied to an Bounce that the ministry baa not decided to I drop the tariff bill, as published In London, but la determined to persist until the dis solution of the Reichstag In June. The tariff debate will probably be abruptly bus (tended by the presentation ot the budget In a few days instead of waiting for the first week In December, aa previously Intended. Chancellor von Buelow finds that the Reichstag's time is being wasted and wtBhea to employ the house on tha finance bill. As aoon aa the latter Is resd the government will take up the tariff bill, when a lapse ot time will have reduced the majority in the bouse to a more yielding disposition The ministry has also decided not to agree with Russia or any other country for five-years' extension of existing com' xnerclal treatlea. Itlehter thaaarea Party. The Incident of tha day was Herr Rich ter's declaration that obstruction In a par llamentary body waa contrary to the dig Blty of the house and that, besides. It was futile and childish. This old radical leader's withdrawal from tha minority and Ilia action In supporting tha conservative and center party majority, which he had been fighting for thirty years, caused Herr Bebel, socialist, to point a finger at htm and exclaim pssslonately: "Go over to the right. Your place ia among the antl emttee." Hrrr Rlcbter made an angry answer. which waa lost In the uproar which fol lowed Herr Be be la remarks. Herr Rlcbter'a entire party followed him and acted with the majority against the I socialists and moderate radicals. Tha step taken by Herr Rlchter was Interpreted la tha lobbies of tha House aa being due to reiterated atucks ot the socialists upon Berlin's liberal municipal government, which la controlled by Herr Rlcbter'a friends, the socialist position being that the Berlin rouncllmen lacked the courage to resist Emperor William' Interference In city affairs. Herr Heine, socialist, today delayed the vote by apeaklng three and a half hours lis walked to the tribune with as armful 'of documents and newspapers, causing 'groans of dismay. Herr Heine began hi speech In a low voice and the conserve ,'tives shouted. "Louder, louder," to which he replied: "I will not wear out my voice iln the drat hour." ' The rest ot his speech waa audible only to those Immediately surrounding him. He waa quite Indifferent to occasional Inter ruptions and Jeers. Afraid at Oaa Bill.

At this stage Count Ballestree, president, announced that the Illumination of the hall was not provided for later than 10 o'clock.

WASHINGTON. Nov. 13. A banquet was given at the Arlington hotel tonight In honor of the representatives of foreign commercial bodies who came to attend the dedication of the New York Chamber of Commerce, and who arrived In Washington for a short visit today. In addition to the foreigners there were present Leslie M. Shaw ,nu M'. fy of President Roosevelt's cabinet. Admiral Dewey, Generals Ccrbir., Young and Wood, membera of the diplomatic corpa and local business men. The table was set In oval shape form and was decorated in large yellow chrysanthe- mums and American beautr roses. Mr. A. Barton Hepburn, chairman of the com mittee on reception of the New York Chamber of Commerce, sat at the head of the table with M. Cambon, ambassador of France, on his right and Sir Michael Her bert, ambassador of Great Britain, on his left, while to the right and left of the am bassadors were respectively Prince Henry ot Pless and Count Quadt of the German embassy. Mr. Hepburn Introduced the speakers, among whom were Secretary Ehaw and Major General Young. Mr. Shaw said In part: Speaking for that department which Is supposed more than any other to represent the buslnes Interests of the nation, I take great end peculiar pleasure In bidding wel come to the capitol of the greatest Ameri can republic representatives of so many of the leading commercial nations of the world. Such a gathering as this would have been ImposKible a century ago. In the creation of sentiment rendering this event both natural and agreeable, and in the evolution of conditions making inter national banquets possible, commerce has played a most Important part. The spread of Intelligence and the pru dence of commerce are making for inter national peace, and 1 thank my God that the day has come when nations no longer war without cause, when great navies are no longer looked upon as threatening the peace of the world and when armaments and fortifications have lost much of their terror. Commerce Mnat Be School. The universal recognition of the great truth that the aood fortune of any one class of Individuals redounds to the ad vantage of all. and the prosperity of the people of any one cc ,ntry benefits all nutiorvs, would be of Inestimable advantage to the world. But if this principle 1e ever to be universally recoanlscd commerce must be the schoolmaster and chambers of commerce klndericarteiia of Instruction. 1 have met within the last few days dis tinguished representatives of foreign chambers and listened to eloquent speeches from their lips in the current languuge of this country. In some lnstancta this was not their mother tongue, but they found it to their commercial advantage to edu cate themselves therein. I do not know that the miracle at Babel will ever be re versed, but if it ever .is the convenience of commerce ana not tne rear or nooas win be the occasion. I do not know that the world will ever adopt uniform standards or weight and measures, but 1 am con vinced that such a course would be to tha advantage of commerce and If this ever shall be accomplished tne metric system, for which we acknowledge Indebtedness to nations represented here tonlaht. will of necessity afford the solution, ft is evident that all values will soon be measured lit old. In fact this Is already done Inter nationally and governments that provide anything else than the gold standard for local use impose a tax upon every inter national trancactlon sufficient to bar their people from competition in the world's commerce. Looks for Common 1 aagnage. I may be dreaming when I suggest that some lime, perhaps in tne distant luttiro perhaps sooner than we think, the current tirlces of the world will be written In a common lamcuaae and In uniform measures lot quantity and denominations or money; j but If so, my excuse for the vlaion shall be that more ttian one dream oi yesteruay Is oavlnc dividends todny. The commercial struggle in the years that will follow must not be lor commercial supremacy. Supremacy must not be Bought for supremacy a sake. The superiority of world's people would be the recognition ot debtorshlp to the world. In recollection of blessings Incident to a civilisation planted by previous generations, encouraged, nur tured and advanced by commerce, let the swiftest winds of trade carry the ripened seed of modern Ideas to all lands, under all skies, for the blessing and the advance ment of all peoples. Voani Defends Soldiers. General 8. B. M. Young waa. to bava apoken on "Our Soldiers In the Philip pines," but having to leave early bia speech waa read for him. The address said in part: The election Is now passed and those who expected to gain political advantage by as sailing the army have failed in their ob ject, and the result bave burled that ques tion forever aa a political one, and I feel now 1 can speak the truth about our sol diers, without being accused of having pi'lltlcal bias or defending them for political effect. Taking Into consideration the cir cumstances surrounding them they be haved remarkably well, better than any other nation expected or than we had any reasonable hope to expect. War Is a gama and a very dangerous one. and the rules of conduct should be left to those that are ex perienced In the game. During the civil war the fire In the rear from the so-called copperheads was what the union soldiers most feared. There may nave been some excuse for the existence of copperheads In lvil, but what possible ex cuse could there be for an honest and rea sonable man to fire In the rear ot a Fili pino? jf every accusation that was brought against these soldiers were true, the etay-al-homes, these befoulers of their own nest, these seekers after notoriety, these active uisturbers of the peace of mind of the brave, patriotic wives and mothers, should have had the decency to preoent llirlr wild fancies to tne proper authorltiie, Instead of trying to convince the whole world that our own brothers and kindred were barbnrtans. I ray the American army Is the most humane army that ever waged war, and I could bear out my assertions by Filipino and Chinese, and even Spanish prisoners. War Always Cruel. To carry on war. disguise it as we mav. is to be cruel, ia to kill and burn, and again Kin ano again ourn. Jf it had not been for the Intenee desire of the American people to carry on an easy persuasive war with the Filipino and the earnest attempt of the American officers to carry out that desire tne Filipino war would heve ended In much lees time. You feel confident that our little Japanese friends would have stopped the pattering ot the barefoot little brown brothers through the Jungles in a very short tune and that the aggressive army of our Ger man friends would not have viewed with equanimity the burying alive of their friends as our eoldiers did in obedience to the home sentiment. I am confident that the coming census will have on its list a great many more people and houses than there would have been hao the German army had control for the past four years. I am not an advocate of war either for conqueet or revenge, or as a meana of mak ing good Indiana of the Filipinos, but when war has been decided on by our nation I agree with the Oerman emperor's senti ments and believe the American army should leave such an imprest Ion that fu ture generations shall know we had been there. The Filipinos did not know anything about the laws of war, but the American soldiers In good falih tried to carry out such laws wr.h a half-eivlliied foe. There were Isolated cases where officer exceeded their authority and where laws were vio lated, but violations of laws were cum- (Contluund oa Second Page.)

Considerable satisfaction la felt at the State department over the reported willingness of Germany to aubmlt to The Hague tribunal the ques tion aa to whether the Chinese Indemnity ahall be paid on a silver or gold basis. The proposition to arbitrate really orig inated with the Chinese government and while Minister Wu refrains from claiming any credit for the Idea, there la good reason to believe that it originated with him. If Germany haa accepted the proposition there is strong ground tor the belief that it will be adopted, but, of couse, there must be a practically unanimous agreement umoag the powt.ro and it is pointed " " , . that England and Japan, the two po out wera that acaled their Indemnity claims down much more severely than the other powers, feel they would not receive their actual expenditure on account of the Boxer re bellion if they accepted a settlement on a silver basis.

Aa the distance la about fifteen miles and the trail rough and bad, the chancea are that it was after dark before they- reached the camp. Smedes Is simply a siding on the Yazoo St Mississippi Valley railway where cotton Is loaded from tha big Smede plantations. Work on the neighboring plantations was suspended thla afternoon and several hun dred negroes were at the aiding when the train stopped. Moat of the men sat on tbe cotton bales, but the black mammies and the plckannlnlea stood along the track. They showed their white teeth In bard grins, but made no other demonstrations as the president stepped from the train. He was clad in bunting costume, kakhl riding trousers, heavy leather leggings, blue flannel shirt, corduroy coat and wore a brown slouch hat, around hla waist waa buckled his cartridge belt and at his side hung his Ivory-handled hunting knife.

Mr. Mlngum, who had much to do with arranging the hunt, waa too 111 to proceed to camp tonight and in trying the pack of bounds today half ot the dogs went off after a deer. As there are only twenty- two dogs in the pack the split Is very disquieting, but Mr. Mlngum Is trying to obtain a pack ot twenty-five dogs owned by Bobb, a famoua bear hunter, about 100 miles north of here. In place of Mr. Mingum It has been arranged that Hugh Foote and Hoke Collier will hunt with the president. Paths have been cut through the under growth to be used aa cutoffs to the river crossing and on these stations the members of the party, except the president, will be stationed.

Signs of beara In the vicinity of the camp are plentiful and Mr. Parker promises the president a shot before tomorrow evening The president's train is on the sidetrack here and a telegraph station haa been ringed up In a box car on tbe siding.

CONVENTION OPENS, BUT DOES LITTLE Dtaeassea Trouble Between Rival Car penters nraranlsatlone and Re fera It to Special Building Trades Committee. NEW ORLEANS. Nov. 13. Samuel Comp ere, at tha opening ot the American Federa tion today, delivered an impassioned warn ing to the members of the organization. The Immediate future of trade and labor assemblies was seriously endangered, he said, by the conflicting claims of Jurisdic tion msde by different bodies. Unless such matters were approached calmly and handled with moderation the tabor organi sations of the country would aoon be In volved In a conflict which would, by com parison, dwarf all the atrugglrs In which they had so far engaged. Unless something was done to check present tendencies the time would come when laboring men would fight with laboring mon from behind barri cades. His warning of danger and hla counsels of peace and moderation met with a hearty response from the assembled delegates. The first day ot the convention, aside from the president'a address, was not of great Interest to outsiders and many dele gates found it fatiguing, but tomorrow It la expected the annual work ot the conventtoa will be entered upon.

Although no hamc vrua mentioned. It waa ' understood by the delegates that reference tae made to the head of one of the leading educational institutions of the country, and they applauded with vehemence. Cheers were again called forth when It waa de clared that the man who acted the role of a strike breaker waa looking backward to ward barbarism and not toward the future. Dclearates in the Convention. A roll was made for the report of the roramlttee on credentials and that body not being entirely prepared, considerable delay resulted. The report declared that sixty nine national organizations, nine state or ganizations, fifty-five central bodies, fifty four local and federal bodice and four fra ternal delegates bad reported and were en titled to representation. The total voting strength of the bodies represented by the delegates wss about 10.QO0. It waa recommended that credentials be denied to a number of delegates who were opposed chiefly because of nonpayment of dues. A protest against the seating ot the delegates of the Amalgamated Association of Carpenters was made by the Vnited Brotherhood of Carpentera and Joiners. Upon motion tho contest was referred back to the committee for further actlan. Jsmes Duncan moved that a special com mittee be appointed to which all dleputea between the branches of the building trades should be referred, this committee to re port direct to the convention.

At the end of the fiscal year there were affiliated with the Federation ninety nlno national and lcternatlou.l autoes, composed of approximately 14,000 locals, twenty-elx state federations, 424 city cen tral bodies and 1,483 local unions. The affiliated national unions have chartered not less than 8,500 local unlona with a total membership of not less than 300,000. Mr. Gompera cautioned tba membera ot trade unlona directly affiliated against tha formation of national societies before auf flclent members and experience bad been secured. Aside from the miners' strike, be ssld. the contests between capital and labor bave been few generally tor higher pay and shorter hours and havs generally been successful, one organization reporting aa Increase of not less than II, 000,000 to lis membera. Mr. Gompers then reviewed the miners' atrika at length, aaying that In the present arbitration proceedings a great moral vic tory bad been won for union labor and that tbe contest waa a splendid exhibition of solidarity on tba part of tha men. He denounced tha Idea ot compulsory arbitration, aaying that aa a remedy It ia worse thsn the dlseass it seeks to cure, while voluntary arbitration after concilia tion bas failed la the ideal plau. He op posed tbe idea of compulsory incorporation of labor unions, saying that while the plan seemed fair on the surface, the well known prejudice against labor organizations on tbe part of Judges would make tbe plan hazardous, and that the result of Incorpora tion might be the outlawing of tba unload.
