, BERLIN. Nor. 13. The Relchstsg adopted
today, by 192 to 71 votes, the paragraph of
the new tariff authorizing the government
(to retaliate on any country discriminating
against German goods. The agTarlant
openly affirmed that It was neceessry to
arm the government with weapona for re
prisal, especially against the United Btatea
Dr. Brumer, national liberal, cited an In
stance In which be aald 1200,000 worth of
enameled goods were ordered In Germany
for New York, but the speaker asserted
the customs officials "changed the classlflca.
tlon at the Instance of the American trusts,
whereupon the New York importer can
celled the order." "It waa proved to the
customs officials," aald Dr. Brumer, "that
the Invoice waa In exact accord with the
Oerman seller's book and that tnatead of
the goods being undervalued the books
showed that shipments bad been made to
India at still lower pricea.
Dictated by Traata.
Dr. Brumer further aaserted that the
customs officials treatment was dictated by
the Interests of the home manufacturers,
and ha continued:
' It la said that we must not offend the
I 'United Elates, but they will respect us more
(and wc shall (tain more by showing our
rf.ee th than by always giving pleasant words,
Herr Qotheln, radical liberal, replied that
such words were no fitting epilogue to the
entlmenta ezpreased by Count Posadowskl,
the home secretary, In the presence of the
foreign secretary, Baron von Rlchthoffen,
at Ambassador White's farewell dinner.
"They will make discord," ba continued.
("among the wishes spoken there tor
ifrlendly relations with the United States.
(Why empower this government to do some
thing It does not want to do? Although the
present government would not apply the
paragraph and some succeeding government
'might commit such a folly. Retaliatory
duties are the weapon of Chauvinism and
not of patriotism." '
Opposes Tariff War.

Chambers of Commerce were opposed to a

"Herr Broehiel, radical, remarked that It
'Germany adopted retaliatory measures
gainst the United States because of regu
,latlons which applied not to the goods ot
all coontriea It. would be a aerious breach
Cf tha existing treaties.
I The Associated Press Is authorlied to an
Bounce that the ministry baa not decided to
I drop the tariff bill, as published In London,
but la determined to persist until the dis
solution of the Reichstag In June. The
tariff debate will probably be abruptly bus
(tended by the presentation ot the budget
In a few days instead of waiting for the first
week In December, aa previously Intended.
Chancellor von Buelow finds that the
Reichstag's time is being wasted and wtBhea
to employ the house on tha finance bill. As
aoon aa the latter Is resd the government
will take up the tariff bill, when a lapse ot
time will have reduced the majority in the
bouse to a more yielding disposition
The ministry has also decided not to
agree with Russia or any other country for
five-years' extension of existing com'
Itlehter thaaarea Party.
The Incident of tha day was Herr Rich
ter's declaration that obstruction In a par
llamentary body waa contrary to the dig
Blty of the house and that, besides. It
was futile and childish. This old radical
leader's withdrawal from tha minority and
Ilia action In supporting tha conservative
and center party majority, which he had
been fighting for thirty years, caused Herr
Bebel, socialist, to point a finger at htm
and exclaim pssslonately: "Go over to

lowed Herr Be be la remarks.
Herr Rlcbter'a entire party followed him
and acted with the majority against the
I socialists and moderate radicals.
Tha step taken by Herr Rlchter was
Interpreted la tha lobbies of tha House
aa being due to reiterated atucks ot the
socialists upon Berlin's liberal municipal
government, which la controlled by Herr
Rlcbter'a friends, the socialist position
being that the Berlin rouncllmen lacked
the courage to resist Emperor William'
Interference In city affairs.
Herr Heine, socialist, today delayed the
vote by apeaklng three and a half hours
lis walked to the tribune with as armful
'of documents and newspapers, causing
'groans of dismay. Herr Heine began hi
speech In a low voice and the conserve
,'tives shouted. "Louder, louder," to which
he replied: "I will not wear out my voice
iln the drat hour."
' The rest ot his speech waa audible only
to those Immediately surrounding him. He
waa quite Indifferent to occasional Inter
ruptions and Jeers.
Afraid at Oaa Bill.
I Tha aession lasted until 1:45 p. m., tha
dilatory tactics of tha socialists and mod
. arsis radii' members occupying tha time.
Tha majority was determined to reach a
.vote oa tha main question and many ex-
citing paesagea characterised the night

xmoved to lay the twenty-one socialist
amendments to the bill oa tha table, and
this motion was adopted by 187 votes to (5.
At this stage Count Ballestree, president,
announced that the Illumination of the hall

WASHINGTON. Nov. 13. A banquet was
given at the Arlington hotel tonight In
honor of the representatives of foreign
commercial bodies who came to attend the
dedication of the New York Chamber of
Commerce, and who arrived In Washington
for a short visit today.
In addition to the foreigners there were
present Leslie M. Shaw ,nu M'. fy of
President Roosevelt's cabinet. Admiral
Dewey, Generals Ccrbir., Young and Wood,
membera of the diplomatic corpa and local
The table was set In oval shape form and
was decorated in large yellow chrysanthe-
mums and American beautr roses. Mr.
A. Barton Hepburn, chairman of the com
mittee on reception of the New York
Chamber of Commerce, sat at the head of
the table with M. Cambon, ambassador of
France, on his right and Sir Michael Her
bert, ambassador of Great Britain, on his
left, while to the right and left of the am
bassadors were respectively Prince Henry
ot Pless and Count Quadt of the German
embassy. Mr. Hepburn Introduced the
speakers, among whom were Secretary
Ehaw and Major General Young.
Mr. Shaw said In part:
Speaking for that department which Is
supposed more than any other to represent
the buslnes Interests of the nation, I take
great end peculiar pleasure In bidding wel
come to the capitol of the greatest Ameri
can republic representatives of so many of
the leading commercial nations of the
world. Such a gathering as this would
have been ImposKible a century ago. In
the creation of sentiment rendering this
event both natural and agreeable, and in
the evolution of conditions making inter
national banquets possible, commerce has
played a most Important part.
The spread of Intelligence and the pru
dence of commerce are making for inter
national peace, and 1 thank my God that
the day has come when nations no longer
war without cause, when great navies are
no longer looked upon as threatening the
peace of the world and when armaments
and fortifications have lost much of their
Commerce Mnat Be School.
The universal recognition of the great
truth that the aood fortune of any one
class of Individuals redounds to the ad
vantage of all. and the prosperity of the
people of any one cc ,ntry benefits all
nutiorvs, would be of Inestimable advantage
to the world. But if this principle 1e ever
to be universally recoanlscd commerce
must be the schoolmaster and chambers of
commerce klndericarteiia of Instruction.
1 have met within the last few days dis
tinguished representatives of foreign
chambers and listened to eloquent speeches
from their lips in the current languuge of
this country. In some lnstancta this was
not their mother tongue, but they found
it to their commercial advantage to edu
cate themselves therein. I do not know
that the miracle at Babel will ever be re
versed, but if it ever .is the convenience of
commerce ana not tne rear or nooas win
be the occasion. I do not know that the
world will ever adopt uniform standards
or weight and measures, but 1 am con
vinced that such a course would be to tha
advantage of commerce and If this ever
shall be accomplished tne metric system,
for which we acknowledge Indebtedness to
nations represented here tonlaht. will of
necessity afford the solution, ft is evident
that all values will soon be measured lit
old. In fact this Is already done Inter
nationally and governments that provide
anything else than the gold standard for
local use impose a tax upon every inter
national trancactlon sufficient to bar their
people from competition in the world's
Looks for Common 1 aagnage.
I may be dreaming when I suggest that
some lime, perhaps in tne distant luttiro
perhaps sooner than we think, the current
tirlces of the world will be written In a
common lamcuaae and In uniform measures
lot quantity and denominations or money;
j but If so, my excuse for the vlaion shall
be that more ttian one dream oi yesteruay
Is oavlnc dividends todny.
The commercial struggle in the years that
will follow must not be lor commercial
supremacy. Supremacy must not be Bought
for supremacy a sake. The superiority of
world's people would be the recognition ot
debtorshlp to the world. In recollection of
blessings Incident to a civilisation planted
by previous generations, encouraged, nur
tured and advanced by commerce, let the
swiftest winds of trade carry the ripened
seed of modern Ideas to all lands, under all
skies, for the blessing and the advance
ment of all peoples.
Voani Defends Soldiers.
General 8. B. M. Young waa. to bava
apoken on "Our Soldiers In the Philip
pines," but having to leave early bia speech
waa read for him.
The address said in part:
The election Is now passed and those who
expected to gain political advantage by as
sailing the army have failed in their ob
ject, and the result bave burled that ques
tion forever aa a political one, and I feel
now 1 can speak the truth about our sol
diers, without being accused of having
pi'lltlcal bias or defending them for political
effect. Taking Into consideration the cir
cumstances surrounding them they be
haved remarkably well, better than any
other nation expected or than we had any
reasonable hope to expect. War Is a gama
and a very dangerous one. and the rules of
conduct should be left to those that are ex
perienced In the game.
During the civil war the fire In the rear
from the so-called copperheads was what
the union soldiers most feared. There may
nave been some excuse for the existence of
copperheads In lvil, but what possible ex
cuse could there be for an honest and rea
sonable man to fire In the rear ot a Fili
pino? jf every accusation that was brought
against these soldiers were true, the etay-al-homes,
these befoulers of their own
nest, these seekers after notoriety, these
active uisturbers of the peace of mind of
the brave, patriotic wives and mothers,
should have had the decency to preoent
llirlr wild fancies to tne proper authorltiie,
Instead of trying to convince the whole
world that our own brothers and kindred
I ray the American army Is the most
humane army that ever waged war, and I
could bear out my assertions by Filipino
and Chinese, and even Spanish prisoners.
War Always Cruel.
To carry on war. disguise it as we mav.
is to be cruel, ia to kill and burn, and again
Kin ano again ourn.
Jf it had not been for the Intenee desire
of the American people to carry on an easy
persuasive war with the Filipino and the
earnest attempt of the American officers to
carry out that desire tne Filipino war
would heve ended In much lees time. You
feel confident that our little Japanese
friends would have stopped the pattering
ot the barefoot little brown brothers
through the Jungles in a very short tune
and that the aggressive army of our Ger
man friends would not have viewed with
equanimity the burying alive of their
friends as our eoldiers did in obedience to
the home sentiment. I am confident that
the coming census will have on its list
a great many more people and houses than
there would have been hao the German
army had control for the past four years.
I am not an advocate of war either for
conqueet or revenge, or as a meana of mak
ing good Indiana of the Filipinos, but when
war has been decided on by our nation I
agree with the Oerman emperor's senti
ments and believe the American army
should leave such an imprest Ion that fu

Roosevelt and his party arrived shortly be
fore 4 this afternoon and started soon
afterward for tbe camp on Little Sunflower
river. Aa the distance la about fifteen
miles and the trail rough and bad, the
chancea are that it was after dark before
they- reached the camp.
Smedes Is simply a siding on the Yazoo
St Mississippi Valley railway where cotton
Is loaded from tha big Smede plantations.
Work on the neighboring plantations was
suspended thla afternoon and several hun
dred negroes were at the aiding when the
train stopped. Moat of the men sat on tbe
cotton bales, but the black mammies and
the plckannlnlea stood along the track.
They showed their white teeth In bard
grins, but made no other demonstrations
as the president stepped from the train.
He was clad in bunting costume, kakhl
riding trousers, heavy leather leggings,
blue flannel shirt, corduroy coat and wore

hung his Ivory-handled hunting knife. The

horses and dashed away for the woods at

Two disappointments met the president
here. Mr. Mlngum, who had much to do
with arranging the hunt, waa too 111 to
proceed to camp tonight and in trying the
pack of bounds today half ot the dogs went
off after a deer. As there are only twenty-
two dogs in the pack the split Is very
disquieting, but Mr. Mlngum Is trying to
obtain a pack ot twenty-five dogs owned
by Bobb, a famoua bear hunter, about 100
miles north of here. In place of Mr.
Mingum It has been arranged that Hugh
Foote and Hoke Collier will hunt with the

days. I rode through tberr a few daya ago
and when I got out my Clothes were al

Mr. Mlngum aaya tbe black beara here
about s weigh from 300 to 600 pounds. "We

"and the beasts will be weighed when they
are brought in."
Signs of beara In the vicinity of the camp
are plentiful and Mr. Parker promises the

The president's train is on the sidetrack
here and a telegraph station haa been

arrangements made to prevent a crowd of
curious people from spoiling the presi

NEW ORLEANS. Nov. 13. Samuel Comp
ere, at tha opening ot the American Federa
tion today, delivered an impassioned warn
ing to the members of the organization.
The Immediate future of trade and labor
assemblies was seriously endangered, he
said, by the conflicting claims of Jurisdic
tion msde by different bodies. Unless such
matters were approached calmly and
handled with moderation the tabor organi
sations of the country would aoon be In
volved In a conflict which would, by com
parison, dwarf all the atrugglrs In which
they had so far engaged. Unless something
was done to check present tendencies the
time would come when laboring men would
fight with laboring mon from behind barri
cades. His warning of danger and hla counsels
of peace and moderation met with a hearty
response from the assembled delegates.
The first day ot the convention, aside
from the president'a address, was not of
great Interest to outsiders and many dele
gates found it fatiguing, but tomorrow It la
expected the annual work ot the conventtoa
will be entered upon.
Gompers Scores Kllot.
When the convention had been called to
order President Lee of the New Orleana
organizations delivered an address on be-
j half of the laboring men of New Orleana,
(o which Mr. Gompers responded.
Mr. Lee closed hla address ot welcome
with a warm tribute to President Gom
pers' personality, declaring that the mem
bers of the federation would follow btm to
President Go:.ipers declared In bis reply
that he fully appreciated whatever waa aald
of him personally and thought be could

After touching upon the scope and bear
ing of the labor union movement. President
Gompers declared that it waa amazing to
note the ignorance among so-called edu
cators. "No man who is an educator." aald
President Uompers. "and praises a strike .
breaker la fit for the nosltlnn ha rnntt '
Compared to such a man Benedict Arnold
a jn.rrtyy and JAaJgMrJjrt.a ailrt.? .
Although no hamc vrua mentioned. It waa '
understood by the delegates that reference
tae made to the head of one of the leading
educational institutions of the country, and
they applauded with vehemence. Cheers
were again called forth when It waa de
clared that the man who acted the role of
a strike breaker waa looking backward to
ward barbarism and not toward the future.
Dclearates in the Convention.
A roll was made for the report of the
roramlttee on credentials and that body not
being entirely prepared, considerable delay
resulted. The report declared that sixty
nine national organizations, nine state or
ganizations, fifty-five central bodies, fifty
four local and federal bodice and four fra
ternal delegates bad reported and were en
titled to representation. The total voting
strength of the bodies represented by the
delegates wss about 10.QO0.
It waa recommended that credentials be
denied to a number of delegates who were
opposed chiefly because of nonpayment of
dues. A protest against the seating ot the
delegates of the Amalgamated Association
of Carpenters was made by the Vnited
Brotherhood of Carpentera and Joiners.
Upon motion tho contest was referred back
to the committee for further actlan.
Jsmes Duncan moved that a special com
mittee be appointed to which all dleputea
between the branches of the building trades
should be referred, this committee to re
port direct to the convention. Thla mo
tion, which removed much of tbe work in

ters from tho floor of the convention, waa
A special committee was alao appointed
to consider the differences between the
longshoremen and other organizations who
claim the former are Intruding upon their
Growth of Organisation.
President Gompers, In hla annual report,
as Id that In the past year six new na
tional unions have been organized, two
are in the process ot formation, while
others are in a position to form national
organizations from existing local unions
of the trade. Charters have been Issued
to fourteen national and International
unions, six state branches, 127 central labor
unions and to 877 trade and federal labor
unions, a total ot 1,024 charters during tha
year. At the end of the fiscal year there
were affiliated with the Federation ninety
nlno national and lcternatlou.l autoes,
composed of approximately 14,000 locals,
twenty-elx state federations, 424 city cen
tral bodies and 1,483 local unions. The
affiliated national unions have chartered
not less than 8,500 local unlona with a total
membership of not less than 300,000.

Mr. Gompers then reviewed the miners'

arbitration proceedings a great moral vic
tory bad been won for union labor and that
tbe contest waa a splendid exhibition of
solidarity on tba part of tha men.
He denounced tha Idea ot compulsory
arbitration, aaying that aa a remedy It ia
worse thsn the dlseass it seeks to cure,
while voluntary arbitration after concilia
tion bas failed la the ideal plau. He op
posed tbe idea of compulsory incorporation
of labor unions, saying that while the plan
seemed fair on the surface, the well known
prejudice against labor organizations on
tbe part of Judges would make tbe plan
hazardous, and that the result of Incorpora
tion might be the outlawing of tba unload.
