such n spirit by these who have
como hero to discuss commer
cial relations and cognnlo subjects is
most encouraging , and xvlmt was said
by the Brazilian representative received
cordial approval from the other delegates -
gates to the congress.
There is n much stronger and more
general sentiment in the countries
south of us , favorable to onlurgod nrid
closer trade rotations with the United
States , than is generally supposed. The
agents in these countries of European
manufacturers and merchants , and the
re presen tativoa there of European
governments , hnvo most indus
triously disparaged thin country
and by every means sought to prevent
the growth of a sentiment favorable to
the United States. But while they have
undoubtedly retarded the advance of a
friendly fooling toward us they have
not boon able to stop its progress. The
conditions which made thin impossible
wore explained in n recent interview
by one of the delegates from South
America. After stating that almost the
entire South American trade Is con
trolled by Europeans jhiolly by the
English and Germans who charge
just what they uloase , ho said :
"The people of South America
nro about tired of being continually
kept under this yoke of monopoly. Thov
see In this congress : v chance to better
their commercial relations with the
world , and especially with tlie United
Slates. " Expressions of this kind war-
rani Ihc hope that the conference of the
Americas will not bo fruitless.
But the problem presented is nn extremely -
tromoly practical one , with the solution
of which the interchange of iKitriotic
and friendly sentiments will have very
little to do. The vital question relates
to what the people of the United
Stales are willing to do
in order to secure for this 'country
at Icnsl a fair share of the large fine
steadily increasing commerce of the
other Americas. There arc barriers in
the way of our securing tills trade whirl :
it is quite as necessary to remove as il
is to provide bettor means of intercom
munication. The importance of estab
lishing btcnmship lines between the
ports of the United States and these o
the countries south of us is generally
acknowledged , but this alone would nol
enable us to command a much greater
share of the commerce of South ant
Central America tlian wo got al
present. Wo must bo able to compete
with European countries not only in the
carrying trade , biit also in the quality
and choanness of our products. Oui
manufacturers must learn the specin
requirements of the people of thosi
southern countries and supply them n
prices at least as favorable as the man a
fnoturors of Europe can nfi'ord. Whatever
over obstructions are in our way thai
arc not in the way of the maaufaclur
ors and merchants of England we mus
removeand wo must seek this trade ai
zealously and care for it as solici
tously as do Europeans.
All this will require very inateria
and radical changes from present con
ditiona , under which our export tradi
with thgso southern countries has beei
declining. Wo have increased ou :
commerce with them in a few products
but this gain has been considerably ox
ceodcd by the decline in the exports o
other products. The causes of this
which it may not bo difficult to nscer
tain , must bo remedied before wo cai
hope to get the control of the growini
southern markets now held by Euro
peans , or oven secure what might Do re
garded as our fair share of their trade
The interests' concerned in hnvini
revolted the treasury ruling undo
which Mexican silver-load ore is ad
milled free of duly seem determined tc
compel the secretary of the treasury ti
come to a decision. Several roprcson
Utivos of these interests are in Wash
inglon.and they nro reported to huvi
intimated to Secretary Windom that H
was their purpose to apply to the sn
promo court of the District of Colum
bia , which has special jurisdiction
of buoh mailers , for an order citiiif
the secretary to show cause wh ;
a writ of mandamus should not issues ti
compel him to collect the duty on lent
now imposed by law. . It Is hardly to be
expected that so extraordinary a stoi
as this will bo taken , but the more in
tlmatlon of it suggests how seriously the
matter ia regarded by the load inter
ests 01 iho country.
The matter has been under considora
tlon by the secretary of the treasury foi
Boveral months. Asslbtnnt Sourotarici
Bnlchollornnd Tiehonor recoinmcndoi
that the Mexican ores should pay dnt ;
at the rate of thirty dollars a ton
and It was expected by the load interests
osts that this recommendation would be
promptly approved , but thus far secretary
tary Windora has taken no action
Several reasons have boon given fo
his delay in rendering n decision , bu
whatever the true one may bo , it ap
pears evident that the load men have
become convinced that the soorolary is
not favorable to them , und that in ordoi
to 11 nd out what ills position is they an
dispobod to carry the case Into court ,
What particular advantage 01
bonollt they could hope to derive from
this course is not quite apparent.
Meanwhile the Mexican government
taking alarm from the movement t <
subject the ores of that country to i
duty , the effect of which would bo dls
nstrous to the mining interests there
has announced that after November 1
almost prohibitory duties will bo 1m
posed by Mexico upon American live
stock and drosscd moats. This action
evidently retaliatory , haa sorvoe
to give largely increased im
portnuco and interest to the
lend ere case , nnd very likely to also in
crease the perplexity of the Becroturj
of the treasury. The return of Minister
Ryan from Mexico , .ostensibly ou n Va
cation , is quite generally bollovod o
have had reference to the threatened
complications in our commercial rela
tions with Mexico growing out of the
load ere cnso nnd the proposed Mexican
duties on American live stock , nnd it Is
not doubtoo. that these matters have
boon very seriously discussed by the
minister , the Bocrotixry of the
treasury , nnd possibly the pres
ident and other members of
the administration. The viowa of
Minister Ryan wore very plainly ex
pressed in a communication to the stale
department , showing him to bo strongly
in favor of n most liberal commercial
policy with respect to Mexico. What
ever influence .ho mayoxort nt Wash
ington wilt undoubtedly bo in opposi
tion to a revocation of the ruling
admitting Mexican sUver lend ores
froo. The indications nro that the lead
men , cvon though they should carry the
case into court , will not have their de
mand complied with. The tendency
of sentiment in favor of reducing the
restrictions to freer and closer trndo
relations with American countries Is
unfavorable to thorn , and the elangor to
other interests involved in allowing
their demand will not bo loft out of
consideration. The present Is not an
opportune time to scol : the erection of
any now barrier against trade with any
American country. Effort to find n
practicable way to remove exiting bar
riers is more in order.

The nomination of Judge Norval , of

supported by the factions that opposed
Reese , Judge Nurvjil was the most
available. His location was central
and the political complications in the
Second district over the Lairei sntibes-
sion wore materially siinpliliocl by
his nomination , .luelgo Norval is : :

The afternoon eession wns opened with

port on the accounts of the treasurer and the
financial secretary and found t.ium correct.
Mrs. U. C. Munlo.v , the president , doliv
crcd the annual address.
Mrs. ' 'To do Intelligently
Mauley began b.v saying :
telligently and faithfully the work which
belongs to u charitable organization has al
ways been the highest aim of the association
whili ( : wo have the honor to represent in
annual convention to-day. Representing ns
wu do tlio loading charitable organization of
Ncbrasua , acting for a largo und intelligent
constituency , trusted with the expenditure
of thousands of dollars from the state treas
ury , and responsible as we must bo for the
safety of scores of human lives' , it is but just
that wo question the past and ourselves , ere
wo assume tno grave responsibility of plan
ning for the future. "
She continued : "Our membership has not
increased in tlio past year as rapidly as we
could desire , but since wo have hud no regu
lar organizer in the Held , wo have had no
reason to expect largo numerical gums. "
Sue spOKc of the financial condition of Iho
association and said that it wus never in u
better or moro satisfactory condition. She
praised tlio work of the auxiliaries and said
they wore doing excellent , services and were
never more needed than to-day.
Spanking of certain cpluouiics that have
visited the iimtitution in the past year , she
said that u system of quarantine had been
introduced which would materially lesson
the danger from such diseases in the future.
Very few adult inmates have been received
in the year just past , in fact applications
have been received fora small number , us it
si-cms to bo generally conceded that the
children should have tlio preference. The
aged womun that have received shelter for
some time are still in their qulel corners , but
it is impossible to rcccivo more , us there is
only room for a limited number. Mrs.
Mauloy continued : "If it. is not deemed ad
visable to establish a state homo for the
aged , wo earnestly hope that some benevo
lent or Christian association will undertake
the case of this deserving and dependent
class. The rules which govern the ad
mission of in ma ten are unchanged. No more
old I adieu can bo admitted , because wo have
no room for them. Yourig infants can not
bo received un less the mothers accompany
them , uccaiiso it is cruoltv nnd injustice to
the little onca audit great injury to tlio home.
Half orphans uro received when tbu remain
ing parent can nay u small sum per month
for thi'Ir maintenance. SuricndereU chil
