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
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 -

in Its appeal for reciprocity ; J. A. Ar-
