CO-OPERATIVES MAKE SHOWING
Eighteenth Annual Festival of British
Association Now In Progress
I.ONDON. Bept. 10. (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) At the Crystal Palace the
eighteenth co-operative festival has been
attracting considerable attention. At the
present time, according to M. Vivian, more
than 2,000,000 households are supplied from
"Wherever you get the conditions that
prevail in the Lancashire and Yorkshire
towns, a largo working class population.
with more or less fixed or Identical In
terests, co-operation prospers," said Mr.
kl'lvlan by way of explanation. "The con
ditions la London are rather different, but
In places like Woolwich and Stratford the
conditions are mora favorable. There you
have a large number of men engaged In
rlmllar. regular employment, with a pros
pect of remaining In town for a lifetime."
The great example In oo -operation is the
Leeds society, with a membership of M.OuO
and a turnover of nearly $10,000,000 every
year. The doings of the corporation of
the city of London are not so keenly
watched, nor by half so many people, as
the doings of the commute of the Leeds
But the novel departure of co-operatjve
housing la the thing that looms largest
for the future. Tenant owners' societies
are springing up under the guidance of t lie
Co-Operative Housing council. Each so
Clely buys land and erects real model
dwellings on the "garden village" principle,
and the co-operative tenant pays rent to
the value of his house. He then owns, not
the house Itself, but script in the society
to the value of the house, the house being
the property of ths co-operative society.

garner talks of simians
Has Discovered a nmher of Snoods
to Which Monkeys At
IiONDON, Sept. 10. tSpecial Cablegram
to the Bee.) Prof. Garner, the American
naturalist, who Is well known in
connection with his studies ' of monkey
language, Is leaving Liverpool for West
Africa with the Intention, of renewing his
observations In the forest primeval with
tile aid of a gramophone. The story of
Prof. Garner's adventures Is full of ro
mance and strange Incident. He was first
attracted to the study of the Simian
tongue by the strange conduct of some mon
keys who were caged with a savage red
nosed balloon, and he determined to try
to interpret the sounds they uttered. ( From
that time he spent much pains- and money
on the subject and has passed many soli
tary hours In the African Jungle, ensconsed
in an Iron-latticed cage.
He claims to have obtained some valuable
scientific, results and to have established
the fact that monkeys communicate by
words, not by signs. In a letter to his
brother at Sydney recently he wrote:
"Here are a few spelt phonetically:
Achru,' meaning water, rain cold; 'kukcha,'
meaning sun, tire, warmth, etc; 'goshku,'
meaning food, the act of eating, etc. Y'ou
will see that this is a very primitive lan
guage; there are perhaps not more than
twenty or thirty words in It that I have
rot ulreudy got."
He has been studying the monkeys In
Cross' menagerie and declares that there
Is a wide difference between anlmaja In I
captivity and those In the forest. There
Is no common language he states, and there
are as many varieties of the Simian tongue
as there are of the human tongue.

LOTTERIES UNDER THE
Mexican KoTernment Derides to S
press National and AH Such
GUADALAJARA, Sept. 10. Word has
been received here that notice has been
sent out from Mexico that all lotteries
must be suppressed. The suppression will
follow the expiration of the franchises
held by the Loterla' Beneflcla Publica. This
franchise was granted for twenty-five years
and has a year to run. The federal gov
ernment will set an example by suppress
ing the national lottery, which is under
government control, and the states which
conduct lotteries will. It Is claimed, follow
suit. The lotteries conducted by private
concerns will be given a certain period in
which to close up their business. The ac
tion will be in line with the efforts of the
Mexican government to suppress gambling
in every form.
The federal district authorities continue
their war against gamblers, foreign and
native, and since the last of last month
gamblers have been unable to secure
licenses. The police break up immediately
clandestine gambling as fast as discovered.
Many gamblers boasted they would open
up again In Tacubaya, a prominent suburb
of this city, but they found that the of
ficers were ready to arrest them. One prop
osition is to establish in one of the Inner
states a great gambling concern, modeled
aft r Monte Carlo, but It Is not probable
that this will be allowed.

i "iijjihii ui ruuL-auunai inr ui iui,
1 which. has been at a standstill with all stu-

The ukase places the election of rectors
and deans of the universities, who have
hitherto teen appointed by the minister of
education and were regarded as represen
tatives of the hated bureaucratic classes,
In the hands of- the professors, thereby
making these officials truly representative
of university life.
The ukase fails to give the right of as

mands for whlcji the students have been
agitating, but the placing of the govern
ment of the universities In the bands of the
professors meets the principal grievance of
the students In regard to purely academic
conditions, as the faculties and students
are thoroughly In sympathy with each
other because of their common efforla to

CUBANS DO NOT LIKE TREATY
Hold Contention with England is Inimical
to Uni'ed States.
AMERICA BEST FRIEND AND CUSTOMER
Senate Ak Opinion of Commerelal
Bodies on the Treaty and They
Condemn It Without
Hritri nt Ion.
HAVANA. Sept. 10. Two of the principal
commercial economic associations, respond
ing to a confidential request made by thu
foreign relations committee of the senate
for advice as to whether the pending
treaty between 'Gieat Britain and Cuba
ought to be ratified, declared emphatically
against ratification. The principal reason
given is that Cuba's interests are too in
evitably bound to Its great customer, the
United States, to permit of granting for
ten years such privileges to British ships
and citizens as those named In the treaty.
Another reason given Is that the adoption
of the treaty would allow privileges to
British warships as well ns merchantmen,
not warranted by the relations between
Cuba and Great Britain and not permissi
ble In view of the relations between Cuba
and the United States. The latter reason
Is considered the most potent on account
cf the suspicion that the treaty, while
ostensibly one of commerce, navigation and
amity, would In reality give to British
warships greater privileges In Cuban ports
than those given to the United States by
the cession of two naval stations.
l'nlted States' Ohjert.
The treaty was signed in May last after
the definite favored nation clause had been
eliminated in consequence of representa
tions made by Mr. Squlors, the American
minister. The United States government,
on receipt of a report regarding the al
leged objectionable feature, made a per
emptory representation against the treaty.
The copy was sent to Washington, since
which time, according to a statement made
to the Associated Press by Secretary of
State O Farrlll, the United States govern
ment has ceased Its representations . re
garding It. It Is known, however, that In
Washington the treaty Is regarded as In
imical to the Interests of the l'nlted
States, not. perhaps, In a commercial sense,
because It d ies not contain any tariff con
cessions, but In the broader political sig
nificance of allowing British warships
equal rights In. Cuban ports with those of
Cuban wnrships. tinder plea of stress of
weather or accident, thus giving to Great
Britain greater privileges than those grant
ed to the United States.
The senate committee to which the treaty
was referred confided It first to the Havana
Chamber of Commerce and afterward to
the Central Economic association. The
former reported to the effect that while the.
privileges and immunities granted appeared
to be mutual they did not confer any real
benefits on Cuba, which had few mercan
tile ships and no warships, while the ex
tension of Its shipping might be hampered
by granting equal privileges to British
ships. The chamber emphntlcally advised
that Cuba do not concede that In cases of
stress of weather or accident both British
merchant and British warships shall have J
the right of "abesterlcerse and pertre
eharae," Spanish words signifying respec
tively to supply with provisions and with
war supplies and munitions. The chamber
considered this to be Inimical to Cuban In
terests, especially as no reservation was
made respecting the laws of international
Action Is 1'nvrlse.
The chamber also considered that It was
unwise to conclude such a treaty with an
over-sea power while no such treaty existed
with the l'nlted States, especially when
changes In the reciprocity treaty are advo
cated, which may Include provisions for
special reciprocal tariff privileges regarding
goods carried In American and Cuban
The other association has not submitted
Its formaj report, but It strongly holds
that the treaty Is Inimical to the interests
' ot Cub ar"' th Tn"d States.
Secretary of state o fr arrtll, on tne con
trary, declares to the Associated Press that
the treaty contains nothing Inimical to the
interests of the United States, and some
other person who are close to the govern
ment contend that suspicion In regard to
the treaty is unwarranted.

The city Is thronged with visitors. The
chief feature tonight was a special service
In the First Baptist church. The soldiers,
marines and bluejackets from the forts,

Dr. Edward Johnson, whose theme was
"Commodore Terry, Rhode Island s Gallant
The church was handsomely decorated.
Special seats were reserved for Perry Bel
mont, a descendant of the commodore, and
Mr. Belmont today made public a letter
sent to him by Baron Kaneko, who was
unnble to be present at the celebration to
morrow. Baron Kaneko wrote:
"Ton know what a keen Interest Japan
ese people take In that connected with the
name of Perry. It was another Commodore
Perry whose able service so closely cemented
the relations between this great govern
ment and Japan, and particularly you know
what a unique privilege I had In connection
with the monument which was erected at
Kurlhama In token of our grateful ap
preciation of the commodore's service to
our empire. Therefore, you can well Im
agine my disappointment when I found
that the engagement at Oyster Bay pre
vents nie from having the pleasure to ac
cept the Invitation."
PRINTERS' STRIKE TO SPREAD
Men Are l.lkely to Go On
In Cincinnati and
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Sept. I0.-From In
formation given out last night by James
M. Lynch, president of the International
Typographical union, a strike of union
printers employed In typothetae shops In
St. IOtils and Cincinnati may occur tomor
row and within a few days at least 100
cities throughout the United States may
"I have received a telegram from St.
I-ouls stating that 1,000 printers In that
city today agreed to demand the eight
hour day. Information from Cincinnati
Indicates that s. strike may be called to
morrow. Of course I am unable to say that
printers In these two cities will strike un
til It Is seen what action the typothetae
In these cities will take. In all cities
throughout the l'nlted States where there
Is not an existing agreement extending be
yond January 1. 19oJ, and In which the
typothetae refuses to grant the demand,
a strike will occur. At this time It looks
as though a strike will occur. Should It
occur It will be one of 'the most notable
In recent years.
"The question hss been brought on nt
this early date by the action of the typoth
etae at Chicago and Detroit and by the
decision of the National Typothetae. I
went to Niagara Falls during the meeting
of the National Typothetae and proposed
a conference between the Typothetae and
the Typographical union on any proposi
tion that might lead to a settlement of
the question. My proposition was refused."

conferences Inst night between President
Roosevelt and the Russian peace envoys,
Mr. Wltte, by direction of the emperor

nication: Some years ago In consequence of mis
understanding in the Interpretation of tha
most favored nation clause, there were
established In Russia on several articles
of American production customs on a
higher scale than those levied on the same
articles when imported from other coun
tries. His majesty, the emperor of Russia, has
commanded me to Infortn the president of
the l'nlted States that he has been pleased
to order the discontinuance of the levying
of such higher duties on American pro
ducts In order that henceforth the Ameri
can manufacturers should pay the same
duties ns Importers from other countries.
Articles Which Are F.ffeeted.
WASHINGTON. Sept. 10 As understood
here the customs duties referred to by M.
Wltte In his communication to the presi
dent, and which by the direction of the
rxar have been discontinued, grew out of
the Imposition In the early part of lfol by
this government of a differential duty on
Russian sugar Imported Into tha l'nlted
States. Following this action of the l'nlted
States was the issuance In retaliation of an
order of the Russian minister of flnnnee,
which became effective Msrch 9. 1901, Im
posing maximum duties on certain Amer
ican articles, the Increases ranging from
20 to SO per cent. Generally stated these
articles were cast Iron wares, manufac
tures of Iron and steel, Iron and steel
hollers, tanks, bridges, pipes, etc., ma
chinery, sewing machines, motors, dyna
mos, portable engines, locomotives and
locomotive cars, locomobiles and fire en
gines. The controversy with Russia which In
volved the Imposition by the l'nlted States
of a countervailing duty on Russian sugar
grew out of the allegation by producers
that Russia was paying a bounty to Ita
