TARIFF TREATY NOW SIGNED

snatloa oa August 18,
WASHINGTON. Aug. 17. The State de
partment haa received a dispatch from T.
B. Sharretts, the treasury expert who wbi
ommlsslotied by the State department to
negotiate a tariff treaty between the Uni
ted Statea and China, stating that the
treaty was signed. -on the l:,ln Instant, and
that he would Ball for the United Statea
en the Drat steamer.
The announcement contained In Mr. Shar
retta' brief dispatch to the State depart
ment brings to a successful conclusion, ne
gotiation which have been In progress for
many months for a tariff treaty between
China andnhls country. It waa stipulated
as one of the features of the peace agree
ment between China and the foreign pow
ers, at the. cloas of the Boxer outbreak,
that an entirely new fabric to the trade
treaties should be made.
This carried out the purpose ' Secretary
Hay had maintained throughout the pre
ceedlng negotiations for an "open door,"
the desire being to open up foreign commu
nications with the Interior of China and
thua gain access to the trait markets of
Following the conclusion of the pesco
arrangements, Mr. Sharretts wss selected
to carry on the tariff negotiations In behalf
of the United States. This selection wss
due to his long familiarity with tariff af
fairs, as he had assisted In the framing of
recent tariff legislation before congress,
and bad also served aa on of the general
appraisers of New York. He went to China
about a year ago, and has stnoe been en
gaged In working out the details of a tariff
It was announced about a month ago
' that the British commissioners had con
cluded a tariff treaty with China, and tt
was understood at that time that the Brit
ish treaty would aerve as a basts for simi
lar treaties with the United Statea and other
foreign countries. Th State department
was advised at the time that the rates
on Imports entering China were U per
cent and -the export duties 1 per cent.
One of the most Important provisions of
the British-China treaty was that abolish
ing .the Llkln tax. It 'Is presumed that
similar rates are made In th American
treety, and that th LI kin tax Is abolished
as far as It relate t American goods in
transit The Llkln tax has been one of th
moat burdensome exactions of the antiquat
ed Chinese systems, as It was levied by
the officials at various points through the
Interior, without uniformity, and often with
less regard for commercial ends than for
th enrichment of the unscrupulous local
official. The abolition of th Llkln tax
will go far- toward encouraging foreign
trade and traffic In th interior of China.
Mr. Sharretts' dispatch le dated at Shang
hai, and does not go into details regard
ing the treaty he has signed.
LONDON, Aug. 18. In a dispatch from
Shanghai the correspondent of the Times
say the protocol of the tariff treaty was
signed yesterday (Saturday) by th British,
American, German and Japanese represent?
atlves without reservation and by the Aus
trian, Gengtan and Dutch representatives
This action, continues the Times corre
spondent, was principally due to the Amer
ican commissioner (T. 8. .Sharretjts) desir
ing to conclude the business before return
ing to the United States..' ; , .
The Chinese commissioners, lacking Im
perial sanction, did not sign the protocol;
therefore, if China modifies It, the signa
tures affixed yesterday will be void.
The document provides that the new tar

small Islands near Macao and the right to

SCHEMES FOR THE FILIPINO
A. Conant Believe Mortsage Banks

NEW TORK, Aug; 17. Some data re

ers under government supervision has been
forwarded o Judge Henry C. Ide, secre
tary of finance In th Philippine Islands,
by A. Conant, who was In tha Philippine
last summer for th purpose of studying
coinage and banking conditions there.
Mr. Conant says It appear that mort
gage loans under government guaranty are
successful, even ' under th conditions gov
erning in Turkey, and that Lord Cromer I
preparing to extend the system In Egypt
Th National Bank of Egypt haa already
mad loana of about $2,000,000 of this char
acter, but as It Is, a commercial bank Is
indisposed to look up further capital in
this form in security. A new bank is there
fore In process of formation to engage In
mall mortgage and agricultural loana. Th
government la to guarantee dividend of S
per cent on the capital, and Is to employ
the public tax gatherers, it necessary, to
collect the lntereat on loana.
Mr. Conant aald today:
I have sent some information on this sub
ject to tha Philippine commission in the
belief that they might find it useful If they
Intend to prepare such a plan for the
Philippines. If such a plan succeeds In
Turkey and Egypt and there la sufficient
sense of financial responsibility - among
these people to prevent serious losses, It is
possible thit the same conditions could
be obtained In tine Philippines. I know
that some means.of aiding them Is a sub
lent very close to the heart of Governor
Tart and Judge Ide.
There la already Spanish law in the Phil

support and active Initiative of the gov

ernor Taft and his aasociatea have so many
problems before them that it will probably
be some time before they will be able to

os'y disased. but ths rsizy vcaihsr which
continued up to Saturday has provd that
th damage was far from general In any
part of th state, only Held her and ther
having been seriously affected.
Stacking is completed In many localities.
Owing to the rains of tb last few days mor
threshing will be done from the shock than
had been anticipated earlier In the season.
While the yield of oats, barley, rye and
other grains la the best for years, Interest
naturally centers In the wheat production of
the stafe. "
In tha, tens of thousands of shocks and
stacks which now thickly dot the entire ag
ricultural portion of the state Is contained
th wheat which will a little later be ex
changed for sums aggregating many mil
lions of dollars.
Whether the estimate of 40,000,000 bushels
as .the state's wheat production thla year
win prove to be accurate, only the future
can determine. That It will not run under
thl figure appears certain, while everything
Indicates that it will exceed the estimate,
perhaps by as much as 5,000,000 bushels.
Preparatory to handling the vast quantity
of wheat and other grain which will be
shipped out of South Dakota this fall, new
grain warehouses and elevators are being
erected in all parts of the state eaat of the
Missouri river, while the capacity, of old
elevators Is being greatly Increased, In
many instances doubled.
Some threshing has been done, and, com

will, tt fair weather prevails, be resumed
and become general In a great part of the
FOR IMPROVEMENT OF PARKS
Mayor of Sioux Fall Takes Step to
Better City's Breathlng;
SIOUX FALLS, S. D., Aug. IT. (Bp-
clal.) In accordance with a pronounced
public sentiment. Mayor Burnsia nas ap.
pointed a committee, consisting of mem.
bers of the city council, for the purpose
of investigating the feaaablllty of tb city
establishing a system of public parks.
Thla is something that th people of the
elty badly need, as there Is not at pres
ent a desirable spot within the city limits
wbr th resident can go tor recreation
and pleasure. Ther ar a number of
sites near th city which could easily
be converted into fine parks.
Among the spots to be considered by
th committee will be what ar known
as Msredltb. Ford, Natwlck and Brough
ton groves, all situated oa the Big Sioux
river, within reasonable distance of the
heart of Sioux Falls, and what is known
as tb big island near the farm of Clark
Coatea. The latter la an unusually hand
some spot. The Island Is entirely sur.
rounded by water the year round. There
are some large trees on the islsnd and
It could be made quite attractive at small
expenses. The question or purchasing
what la known as Seney Island, located on
the Big Sioux river only a few block dis
tant from th business center of Sioux
Falls, and converting It Into a park will
also be considered by the committee. Seney
Island would be the most convenient place,
as It Is easily reached from any part of
n smms f if s
Brewed In plant as dean as the
Prickly Ash Bitters Yr
the city. From It an excellent view of
th falls of th Sioux, from which th
city take Its name, can be obtained.
The committee will make a report to the
mayor and city council In the near future,
when action toward securing a park may
WISHING RAIN WOULD CEASE
"outh Dakota Ranchmen Heplua; that
Present Rainy Seaaoa Will
PIEflRE, S. D.. Aug. 17. (Special.) -Ranchmen
are hoping that the rainy season
for this year will soon coma to an end.
Last year tt continued Into September
and as a result grass on the range was
kept green until killing frosts cam and
It was spoiled aa winter feed. They fear
the same results this year again. While
th fall rains essur early grass in the
spring, and bring a heavier hay crop, they
have the disadvantage of spoiling winter
range. Such seasons a last year and
this year will mean that a supply of hay
must be depended upon for winter feed
Instead of. the open range, and this will
mean smalhir herds, as It Is practically
impossible to put up enough bay for the
cattle In the larger herds, which are scat
tered over a scope of country larger than
many of th eastern states, and could
not be got to a central feeding point, even
If th hay supply bad been secured for
