President at His Desk.
'.' JVAfipINOTON; Oct. 1T6. Not withstand
tag the sever strain. Incident to the men
tal and physical labors. .yestarday and last
night. President Roosevelt Wis at his desk
early todajn.'. ' .,
Burgeon General QRellly and Dr. Lung,
who called at the temporary White House
shortly after 9 o'clock, announced, on
leaving, that the president was progress
ing finely mild was In excellent spirits.
Already the' president Is In receipt of
scores of telegrams ot congratulation upon
hla efforts to effect a settlement ot the
anthracite 'coal strike. ,:
No doubt Is expressed that- the misers
will accede' to tha arrangements made by
the president and accept the commission of
arbitration appointed by him. Indeed, it la
known already at tbe White House that the
personnel of the 'commission meets tha
personal approval of Mr. Mitchell. It Is
understood, to fact, that tbe miners' presi
dent suggested to President Roosevelt that
in tbe selection et the members ot tbe
cpmmtssloa, .he include a, representatlv of
the clergy and one who. was known to be
In practical. If not In active, sympathy
with drganired labor, Hla desires in this
respect wero gratifies by the president's
appointment of Bishop J. L. Spalding and
of ,E. Clark,, gram) chief of the Order
of Railway Conductors.'.
Whether Mr. Mitchell suggested these
among other oanes of "men who trould be
satisfactory to blm, could not be ascer
tained. It la understood tbat those named
ns membera of the commission have Indi
cated to the president, their wi.Uogness to
accept' tile trust Imposed upon tbem.
It has pot been determined at this time
wlen or where the commtskton wUI hold
Its slUlngs. It Is stated at the White
Houst that this will be one ot the details
to be- worked out when a formal accept
ance of the arbitration commission shall
have bon received from the miners.
Naturally, it la assumed that the head
quarters of the commission ill be la Wash
ington, but It is entire? likely that some,
at least, of its proceedings will be held
Id New York and la the coal regions, prob
tbly t .Wilkesbarre.
Tbe report ot the commlsaton will' be
made to- the prealdent and by him wUI be
communicated to .the parties to the con
troversy aad to the general public.
'Two of the all members. General Wil
son aad Mr. Parker, and the recorder, Com-mission-
of Labor Wright, live In this
city, and they are ready to begin their
labors at any time. The other, it la v
pected, will be able to come here without
delgy. Mr. Parker today to 1 New Have.
Con., where he la attending the con
vention of the American Institute of Min
ing Bngineer. He will probably return
to .Washington at once.
The work of the commission-will be ex
haustive' and 'will take considerable time.
It V -tbe president's desire that the In
quiry be: very thorough and that the com
mission perform the labors set before tt
so coaiplolely aa to secure not only
final adjustment of the preaeat troubles,
but also to furnish a basis upon which
similar great labor troubles may be averted
in tbe futare.
Ita first step will be. to organise and
select a chairman to preside over its delib

uet settled, but depends oa the Individual

The president himself feels deeply grate
ful for' the outcome. He regards It. as
honorable to both aides, ss securing Jus
lice to both aides and above all as avert
ing a terrible calamity to the people.
Mr. (Urgent,'. th oompilssloner general
of Immigration, Jho is well known In

in the movement to secure a settlement of
the difference between the operators and
the strikers, I pleased with the outcome

the president has had steadily In view the
fact that the enry way a settfeiaent could

given much time and earnest thought to

E. B. Thomas, chairman of the executive

Discussing the possibility of getting coat
into the market promptly after the mines

BKRLl.V. Oct. 16. The Reichstag, al its
session today entered on the discussion of
the tsriff bill, commencing with the
schedules' relating to wheat and rye.
Chancellor von Buelow recommended that
the bill be 'passed, aa drawn' up, saying
that th house committee proposals In
creasing the minimum tariff would render
the conclusion ot new treaties Impossible.
The' tariff propoeed by the government, he
added, was the extreme limit tt Germany
wished to obtain from .other countries
greater concession than It now enjoyed.
Tbe chancellor enumerated tha consid
erations which guided them In framing
The object In view was to afford agri
culture Increased protection, and at the
me time pot only to retain th homi
market, for Germany's Industries, but ale
to develop as much a possible the sale
of German producta abroad.
It was desirable for trade, agriculture
and Industry that commercial treaties ex
tending over' long periods should be con-
clu(ld, 'but they should be based on full
reciprocity while safeguarding Germany'
Tbe chancellor pointed out that the new
tariff specialized to a greater extent than
former tariffs,' and said this was Intended
to afford an effective weapon In the' nego
tiation for treaties. It also provided In
creased duties ori article considered' Im
portant fronV 4 politico-commercial view.
point. These increases offered sufficient
scope tor negotiation. The federal gov
ernment regarded moat of the apprehen
sion regarding the minimum rate pro
vided by tbe bill as unfounded. No lack
of solicitude tor agriculture waa shown in
the bill, and tbe fear that the passage of
the measure would lead to increased cost
ot living for tbe working people he eon
Will Never Discriminate.
- The government, the chancellor declared,
would never consent to discriminate against
others ta favor of' working people. They
muat pteer . a middle course, between tbe
In.tercstsof all, between the interests of
the, .agriculturalists and industrialists,
whosft respective success was necessary to
the wri 'are- of, each other. , Th proposed
agrarujn duties would not harm the indue
IriallBts, but the Increase in the. minimum
ratpa would make., it . impossible to con
cjud the .treaties. .
. If , the. bill was rejected the government
would .toe obliged Jto continue the existing
treaties or negotiate, new ones on the basis
of the. ld. tariffs, in- which case It waa
doubtful If German trade, especially agri
culture, wpuld benefit. ..
The .chanoeller's remarks cauaed violent
pretests- and made- him appeal to tbe bouse
not to disturb the course ot the proceed
ings er bring about their suspension-by
artificial mean. Jt would, be laying an
ax -ta the root . of tbe parliamentary sys
tem if thq matter was not discussed in
proper seriousness and In a practical
manner. --.;t -. r
Herr Gothaln (radical) said the bill pro
vided a defensive armor so heavy that it
would only- make the- fight, harder; other
states would .increase their duties and this
process would be-without end. In the In
terest of Industry, he' laid. It would be
wiser to 'extend the Existing treaties. Tho
wretched condition tf agriculture was due,
mainly,' to mismanagement.
Herr von Kardorff (Imperialist) declared
on behalf of hla party tbat It would Insist
upon the proposals ot the tariff committee.
