Wo mut take ecrnp iijou mm thnt thn reappllcatlnn ahall be mndn In muh a way that It will not amount In a (Unification of our gyntem, the more threat of whlrh (not to apeak of the per formance) would prodnce paralyala in the biialneae cnerRlca of the community. The first consideration in making three changea would, of course, be to preaerve the prin clplo which underlie our whnln tariff aya lem that la, the principle of putting American buelncaa Intercnta at least on a full eriuallty with Interest abroad, and of alwaya allowing a sufficient rate of duty lo moro than cover tho difference between the labor coat here and abroad. The well-being of the wage-worker, like tho well-being of the tiller of the noil, ahould be treated aa an essential In shap ing our whole reonornlc policy. There miiet never be any change which will Jeopardize thn standard of comfort, the standard of wages of the American wage worker. Iteclprnc-lt y la Advocated. One way In which the readjustment ought can be reached la by reciprocity treaties. It Is greatly to be desired that such treaties may be adopted. They can be used to widen our markets and to give a greater field for the activltiea of our producers on the one hand and on the other hand to secure In practical shape the low ering of dutlca when they -are no longer needed for protection among our own peo ple, or when the minimum of damage done may be disregarded for tho sake of the maximum of good accomplished. If it prove impossible to ratify the, pending treatiea, and if there saem to be no warrant for the endeavor to execute othera, or to amend the pending treatiea so that they can ba ratified, then the same end to secure reci procity should be met by direct legisla tion. Wherever tariff conditions are such that a needed change cannot with advantage b made by the application of the reciprocity Ide.. then It can be mad outright by a lowering ot duties on a given product. It possible, such change should be made only after, tho fullest 'consideration by prac tical experts, who should approach the sub ject from a business standpoint, having In view both thn particular Intereata affected and the commercial well being of tho peo ple as a whole. Tho machinery 'for pro vldlng such careful Investigation can read ily be supplied. The executive department has already at Its disposal methods ot Col lecting facts and figures, and. If tbo con gress desires additional consideration to that which will be given the subject by Its own committees, then a commission ot business experts can be appointed whose duty It should be to recommend action by the congress after a deliberate and. scien tific examination ot tbo various schedules as they are affected by the changed and changing conditions. The unhurried and unbiased report of this commission would show what changes should be made In the varloua schedules, and how far. these changea could go without also changing the great prosperity which this country la now enjoying or upaettlng ita fixed economlo policy. The cases In which the tariff can pro duce a monopoly are so few as to consti tute an inconsiderable factor In the ques tion; but of course If In any case It be found that a given rate of duty doea pro mote a monopoly which works ill, no pro tectionist would object to such reduction ot the duty as would equalixo competi tion. In my Judgment the tariff on anthracite I coal should be removed and anthracite put actually, v. hero It now Is nominally, on the ' free list. Tbla would have no, effect at all I save In arlaea; but In crises 1( might ba of service to the people. ( arrrary aaal Bawailwaj, Interest rates are a potent factor In busi ness activity, and in ord'-r that these rates may be equalized to meet the varying needs ot the veaaona and of widely aeparated communities, and to prevent the recurrence ot financial stringencies which Injuriously affect legitimate buslneaa, It Is necessary that there ahould bo an element ot elaa ticlty In our monetary ayatem. Banka are the natural aervanta of commerce, and upon them ahould be placed, as far as practicable, the burden ot furniahlng and maintaining a circulation adequate to aup- ply the nee.la of our dlveraifled Induatrlea and of our domeatlc and foreign commerce; and tke laaue ot this should ba so regulated that a sufficient supply should bo always available for tho business Intereata of the country. It would bo both unwise and unnecessary at thla time to attempt to reconstruct our financial ayatem, '"which has been the growth or a century; but some additional leglsl tloa Is. I think, desirable. The mere out line of any plan sufficiently comprehensive to meet these requirements would trans greaa the appropriate llmita of this com municatlon. It Is auggeated, however, that ail future legislation on the eubject ahould b with tho vtww encouraging the use ; of auck Inatrumentalltlea aa will auto math-ally supply evtry legitimate demand f productive Induatrlea and of commerce, aot only la th amount, but In tha char acter ot circulation, and ot making all am lo or monv Interchangeable, and. at th i will of the holder, convertible Into th ea I tani:nej gold standard.

This Is an era of federation and combination. Exactly aa buslneaa men find they must often work through corporations, snd Ss It Is a con- tant tendency ot these corporations to grow larger, so It la often necessary for laboring men to work In federations, and theao bae become Important factors of modern Industrial life. Both kinds of fed- ratlon, capitalistic and labor, can do much good, and as a necessary corollary thoy can both do evil. Opposition to each kind of organization should take the form ot pposltlon to whatever Is bad In the con duct of any given corporation or union not ot attacks upon corporations aa such nor upon unions ss such; for some of the most far-reaching beneficent work for our people has been accomplished through both corporations and unions. Each must refrain from arbitrary or tyrannous Interference with the rights of others. Organized cap ital and organized labor alike should re member that in the long run the interest of each must bo brought into harmony with the. interest of tho general public; nd the conduct of each must conform lo the fundamental rules ot obedience to the law of individual freedom and ot Justice and fair dealing toward all. Each should remember that In addition to power It must strive after the realization of healthy, lofty and generous Ideals. Every em ployer, every wage worker, must be gunr- nteed his liberty and his right to do a he llkea with his property or his labor so long as h does not infringe upon the rights of others. It is of the highest Im portance that employer and employe alike hould endeavor to appreciate each the viewpoint ot the other and the sure dis aster that will como upon both In the long run if either grows to take as habitual an attitude of ' sour hostility and distrust toward the other. Few people deserve better of the country than those repre sentatives both of capital and labor and there are many such who work continu ally to bring about a good understanding of this kind, based npon wisdom and upon broad and kindly sympathy between em ployers and employed. Above all, we need to remember that any kind ot claBS ani mosity In the political world Is, if possible, even more wicked, even more destructive to national welfare, than sectional, raoe or religious animosity. We can get good gov ernment only upon condition that we kejp rue to the principles upon which this na tion was founded, and Judge each man not as a part of a class, but upon hia Individual merits. All that we have a right to ask of any man, rich or poor, whatever his creed, his occupation, his birthplace, or his residence, Is that be shall act well and honorably by his neighbor and by his country. We are neither for the rich man as such nor tor the poor man as such; we are for the upright man, rich or poor. So far as the constitutional powers of the national government touch these matters ot general and vital moment to the nation, they should be exercised In conformity with tho principles above set forth. Department of Commerce. It la earnestly hoped that a secretary of commerce may be created, with a Beat In tho . cabinet. The rapid multiplication of questions affecting labor and capital, tho growth and complexity ot the organizations through which both labor and capital now find expression, the steady tendency toward the' employment of capital In huge, cor porations, and the wonderful strides of tbla country toward leadership In the inter national buainess world, Justify an urgent demand for the creation of such a position. Substantially all the leading commercial bodies In this country have united In re questing its creation. It Is desirable that some aucb .measure as. ..that which haa .al ready passed the senate be enacted .into law.' The "creation of such a" department would In Itself be an' advance toward dealing with and exercising supervision over the whole subject, of the .great cor porations doing an Interstate business, and with thla end in view the congress should endow the department with Urge powers, which could be increased aa experience might show the need. Reciprocity with Cubn. I hope soon to submit to the senate a reciprocity treaty with Cuba. On May 20 last the United State kept Its promise to the Island by formally vacating Cuban soli and turning Cuba over to thoBe whom her own peoplo had chosen as the first officials ot the new republic. Cuba lies at our doors, and whatever affects her for good or for ill affects us also. So much have our people felt this that In the Piatt amendment we definitely took the ground that Cuba must hereafter have closer political relations with us than with any other power. Thus In a sense Cuba las become a part ot our Interna tional political system. This makes it necessary that In return she should be given some of the benefits ot becoming part of our economlo system. It Is, from our own standpoint, a short-sighted and mischievous policy to fail to recognize thla need. Moreover, It is unworthy of a mighty and generous nation. Itself the greatest and most successful republic In history, to refuse to stretch out a helping hand to a young and weak sister republic Just enter ing upon Its career ot independence. We should alwaya fearlessly insist upon our rights in the face of the strong, and wo ahould with ungrudging band do our gen erous duty by the weak. I urge the adop tion ot reciprocity with Cuba not only be cause It Is eminently tor our own Interests to control the Cuban market and t)y every means to foster our supremacy In the tropi cal lands and watera south of us, but also because we, ot the giant republic of the north, chould make all our aister nations of the American continent feel that when ever they will permit It we desire to show ourselves disinterestedly and effectively their -friend. Trade with Newfoundland. A convention with Great Britain has been concluded, which will be at once laid be fore the senate for ratification, providing for reciprocal trade arrangements between the United States and Newfoundland on substantially the lines of the convention formerly negotiated by the secretary of state, Mr. Blaine. I believe reciprocal trade relations will be greatly to the ad vantage ot both countries. International Arbitration. As civilization grows warfare becomea less and less the normal condition of for eign relations. The last rentury haa seen a marked diminution ot wara between civil ized powers; wars with uncivilized power are largely mere mattera of international police duty, essential for the welfare of the world. Wherever poalble, arbitration or some similar method should be employed In lieu of war to settle difficulties between civilized nations, although as yet the world has not progressed sufficiently to render it possible, or necessarily desirable, to In voke arbitration in every case. The forma tion ot the International tribunal which sita at The Hague la an event of good omen from which great consequences for the wel fare ot all mankind may Oow. It la far better, bre poaalble, tq Invoke aucb a permanent tribunal than to create apeclal arbltratora for a given purpose. It la a matter'of alncere congratulation to our country that the United Statea and Mexico should have been tha first to use the good office of Th bague court. Thil waa don laat aummer with moat aatiafac lory result In th eaaf a claim at iaau between ua and our alater republic. It la earnestly to b hoped that thla firm aaa will erv a a wrweedeat for others.

REFUSAL WILL BE MET BY JOINT ACTION Recent Increase Not ( onaldered a ffl rlent on Weatern and Northwest ern I.lnra and Those P.nlerlnc Chlcnajo from the Kaat. CHICAGO, Dec. 2. With the purpose of formulating requests for Increases of from 10 to 20 per cent In the pay of 170,000 rail road employes, cpmmlttees from four labor organizations are now meeting In Chicago and expect to present their demands early next week. The four organizations represented by the committees are: Locomotive Engineers, Locomotive Firemen, Railroad - Trainmen, Railway Conductors. For the first time. In eight years the four organizations are working In harmony and may tie counted upon to stand together in the possibility of trouble with the rail roads. It Is announced that requests for In creased pay will be made on every railroad system In the middle west and northwest and on eastern roads entering Chicago. The roads are to be given one month to meet the demands. If, by that time, a dis position to treat Is hot shown concerted ac tion will be taken. It Is the general opinion that drastic ac tion will be unnecessary as railroad man agers are showing a disposition to treat with committees, of .their employes and the chances are that amicable adjustments of tho wage question will be effected. In some Instances the Increases have been already formulated. The engineers employed by the Chicago & Northwestern are asking 4 Vi cents a mile. They are now receiving 3 7-10 cents a mile. The Chicago & Alton men have also form ulated their requests. A new rate went Into effect today and provides for a maximum of 4 cents a mile for engineers. This Is not considered satisfactory and 7 cents a mile will be demanded; The new rate establishes a minimum of 2.65 cents a mile for firemen. f They will ask 2 cents. The freight conductors will ask 4 cents and the brakemen 8 .cents. Passenger conductors are now receiving $120 a month. They will ask $135. Passenger firemen are now paid $60 a month and will ask $76. READING ROAD RAISES WAGES Distribution of Coal Is Being" Grad ually Extended to the West and the South. TAMAQUA, Pa., Dec. 2. Employes of the Shamokln division of the Philadelphia and Reading Railway company'have been noti fied of an increase In Wages. The advance Is as follows: Machinists, from $2.25 per day to $2.50; fire cleaners, from $1.92 to J2.1I; Inspectors, from $1.80 to $2.00; engineers, from $1.50 to $1.68; engine wipers, from" $1.10 to $1.21; foremen, from $2.30 to $2.80.. "The car Injectors, who received $45 and $50 per n Q i, are ad vanced 10 per cent. 1 8emnp..ie men are also to be Increased. $5 per month. The wage scale for locomotive engineers,' fire men and trainmen' will be announced later. PHILADELPHIA, Dec 2.

Pat at Man Oat of the Rc. Coffee serves some people In a most atrocious manner. "I was a veritable coffee fiend, until finally my atomach rebelled at the treat ment and failed to work," writes a gentle man from New York. "I had dyapepsla In Ita worat form; blind ataggerlng headaches with vertigo about a half hour after each time I ate, and I finally grew ao weak and became so thin that my mother advised me to stop coffee and try Postum Food Coffee. I did not like It at first, but after ex perlmentlng In mailing It, Mother soon got It Juet right, and I then liked It better than coffee. I soon noticed my biliousness stopped and I lost the trembling effect on my nerve; Poatum'dld not stimulate me but seemed to exhilarate. I gradually regained my wonted good health; my old appetite returned, and today I am well dyapepsla, headache and vertigo all gone, and Poatum did It. When I began Ita ue, I had been troubled for two yeara with all klnda of atomach trouble. I became a veritable walking apothecary ahop, but I have not taken a duae of medicine ainee I commenced ualng Poatum." Kama given by Poatum Co., Bat tie Creek, Mich.
