AlJECIRAB. Spain. Jan. ls.-Ths dels
gates to the. Moroccan conference began as-s-mbllnt
shortly before t o'clock thla after
noon., causing a scene of treat animation.
The American delegation arrived at the
town '.hall following the. Spanish. French,
Merman, and Brltlah delegations. The fact
that . the ; French and Brltlah' delegations
drova 'i to ; the conference together wae
noticed and commented upon.
'.The conference- was opened at I o'clock,
ihs duke of 'Alraodovar, the Spanish for
' elgn minister, delivering the apeech of wel
come. ,Herr ,von Radowlts, chiefs of the
, (JerQian commission, propoaed the duke of
i Almoddvar as,-president of the conference
and 'the other eountrlee represented. In
cluding the I'M tad States, seconded the
proposal with the result that the duke waa
unanimously elected president.
' Dak J far Oaaa Door.
During the course of hla address, the
duke of Almodovar aaid: "The power
have clearly shown their desire that order,
peace and prosperity shall reign through
out. Morocco. . The sultan as well as the
foreign governments dnalre this end, which
is. obtainable by. Introducing reforms upon
the triple principle of the sovereignty .of
the sultan, , the integrity of his territory
and equal commercial treatment,' namely,
the. open door. Mutual respect for our
reciprocal Interests and a sincere desire to
conciliate them must be, according to my
view, our. rule of .conduct at this confer
ence.'. Our own sentiment as well as the
expectant attitude of the entire world dic
tates such a . conciliatory ablution."
. The conference adjourned at S:lt p. m.
until tomorrow, 'after deciding to begin the
next 'session with dlacueslng the surveil
lance of contraband arma and then take
up' the question of financial reforms.
' Ambassador .White waa most satisfied
with . the . result of the meeting aa when
the duke of Almodovar emphasised the
necessity for the Independence of Morocco
and the open door he waa Immediately and
strongly Seconded by the . French and
German: delegates.
..." laaaes lavalved. .
On the eve of the Moroccan conference it
Is well to- define the essential Issues
presented, aa they will clearly Indicate the
general' scope of the meeting and the chief
danger of the Issues Involved.
On ' September ' 2 last M. 1 Rouvier for
France,-and ' Prince Radolin for Germany,
reached an agreement of the exact pro
gram of .the conference. This program Is
quite short, as It was ' part of Rouvler'a
skillful1 diplomacy to bring the conference
within , the , closest possible limits. The
program agreed upon was as follows:
' The two1 governments are In accord In
proposing to the sultan the following pro
gram:. 1. Organisation by international accord,
of the police,, except on the Algerian fron
tier. .
t. Surveillance ' and repression of contra-
band arms, except along the Algerian fron
tier. . . - . .
. I. Financial - reforms. , with - the creation
of a state bank, with the privileges of
issuing currency, '
i 4. Study of the customs and new means
Of raising revenues.
, , The , agreement , contains some ' other
minor- features, but the foregoing are the
- essential . questions to be presented to the
, Moroccan ; conference.
', ' .' fealtlea of Fraace,
' France ' throughout ' the controversy and
up tq the - opening of the conference has
;naintalned that It bad a special privileged
position In Morocco. That It' is the vital
question . about'' to be considered, for the
questions of-contraband and customs are
largely detail. If the special position of
France Is recognised, then the coming con
ference will - turn over to France the or
ganisation -of the police and military and
the! surveillance 'of , contraband. In short,
all' of the questions Involved hinges upon,
the- main question as to whether the spe
cial position of France Is to ' be clearly
, recognised. . By" the foregoing agreements
Qernlany has' recognised the need of some
outside supervision 'over Morocco. It re
mains to decide who will exercise this
supervision. Germany will doub'tloss con
tend .' for ' international supervision, in
which' It 'and ' all 'other powers shall take
equal part,, something like, the Interna
tional' administration of Macedonia and
Crete: ' ' On ' the other hand, France con
sistently, upholds Its special and paramount
right; based on geographical position, to
safeguard 'the future of Morocco, acting
thus as the' virtual trustee' of the nations,
. The issues before' the conference, there
fore, are comparatively simple; first, shall
Franoe be 'charged with tho necessary re
forms for " Morocco, and, second, the de
tailed consideration of these various re
forms relating to finances; police, customs
' and contraband.

In . the Moroccan conference, at Algeciras

Williams Offers' Ameadmea.
The minority leader, Mr. Williams, no
ticing "a lucid Interval on the part of the
administration and the party In power,"
offered an amendment putting sugar and
tobacco from-the Philippines on the free
list He twitted the republican opponents
of the bill with having "weak knees" be
cause they had Juat refused - to support
Mr.' McCall's amendment to "cut loose"
from the Philippines.
Mr. Payne thanked Mr. Wlltlams. but
declared, his help waa not needed In per
fecting the bill.
Champ Clark declared he hsd a mot
pertinent question to ssk. "Does the gen
tleman think he can peas this bill without
our help?"
-. "I consider that question very Imperti
nent." was Mr. Payne's answer, much to
the amusement of the democratic side.
Mr. Payne explained the need In the
Philippines of the revenue which will come
from the SB per cent tax on sugar and the
"Levy a tax on land," Interjected Mr. Wil
liams. The William amendment was defeated,
the house dividing aa party lines M to 170.
Mr. Mann (111.) secured the adoption of an
amendment providing that tariff and Inter
nal . revenue collections shall . go directly
Into the Philippine treasury only until April
U, 190B. Mr. Mann explained that at the ex
piration, of this time If It was so desired the
Philippines might still be allowed to retain
such collections.
An amendment cutting off 1150 a tot; of
the differential on refined sugar and leav
ing of the differential waa offered by
Mr. Clark.
Mr. Payne made a point of order against
the amendment. Mr. Clark here, replied to
a fling Mr. Payne had made to Mr. Clark's
tear down the customs houses" speech. He
quoted his predecessor In the house, who
on one occasion declared. "Fellow Cltlsens,
consistency be damned."
"If I was not a church member," con
tinued Mr. Clark, "I would repeat those
words here today. But . being a church
member and being afraid of getting turned
out, I will put it this way: I had rather be
Inconsistent and be right than be consistent
and be wrong." This was greeted with
hilarity on both sides of the house.
As fo the amendment Mr. Clark said
here was an opportunity for all those re
publicans who "had denounced the Sugar
trust" to back up their words. "If you
vote against this amendment," he con
tinued, "forever and- eternally hold your
peace about the extortions of the Sugar
trust" His amendment would reduce the
differential yearly to the total of tt.U7.906.
Differential Amendment Lost.
The differential fight was reviewed by
Mr. Payne' with -the ' conclusion that the
republicans who voted with the democrats
at that time were "stampeded."
Addressing himself to his republican col
leagues, Mr. Payne ' declared : . "You may
follow htm (Mr. Williams) to your political
graves.' There Is no law to prevent It.."
After a running debate. In which Mon-
dell (Wjc). Mann (111.). ; Clark (Mo.),
Grosvenor (O.) and Mr; Williams, the
minority leader, took part,' Mr. Olmsted
ruled the amendment not In order, saying
the. amendment was so worded as to not
even touch Philippine sugar. ..,-'
Mr. Clark appealed from the. decision of
the choir and on a rising vote the de
cision was sustained,' 220 to. 120, not a re
publican voting with the democrats. Ap
plause followed the vote when Mr. Williams
exclaimed: "Having succeeded In reunit
ing the republican party (long republican
applause) which Is always the result of
an attack 'on the Sugar trust (prolonged
democratic applause), I will not offer an
other amendment."
Mr. Williams gave way to Mr. Sullivan
(Mass.), who vainly sought to amend the
bill so that articles manufactured, . or yet
to be manufactured, might be , reshtpped
free of duty between the Philippines,' the
United States and Its territorial posses
sions. The committee of the whole then
rose and the bill was reported to the house.
Flaal Vote oa the BUI.
The democratic substitute of Immediate
free trade with he Philippines was of
fered : after the amendments to . the bill
had been agreed to in the house. On roll
call the democratic substitute was de
feated, 231 to 106. Messrs. Clark and Lamar
of Florida being the only democrats to
vote agatnat the substitute. A roll call on
the passage of the bill waa then demanded
by Mr. MondelL The roll call on this re
sulted In 268 yeas and 71 nays, with seven
answering present.

the railroad rate question, which was pre

to make a brief speech In explanation of
sa amendment offered by him to tie Dol-

thority to modify orders of the Interstate
Commerce commission Imposing nu un
reasonable rate. He had not proceedtd far
when he was switched from a general ex
planation of tbe terms of the provision
to a defense of the principle which it seeks
to establish and a general debate fr.Howed.
Mr. Fulton held the floor throughout but
there were many Interruptions, ani other
senators fully shared the time. among
them being Messrs. Foraker, Spooner,
Bailey and Clay. Tbe discussion was lis
tened to most attentively by. ail the- aa
tors, showing' the great ' Interest tliat Is
felt In the subject. The trend of the con
troversy, was all toward the point as to
whether congress haa the right to delegate
Its authority to fix rates and whethw the
courts may determine mhat Is a ream-nibble

courts may legitimately exercise this
right '.'-,'

INDIANAPOLIS.' Ind., Jan. 1-Pres.
dent ' John . Mitchell's announcement this
afternoon . .that "satisfactory progress Is
being made toward a conference between
the mine workers and the operatora' of
the anthracite region," drew round after
round of .applause from 1,200 delegates
assembled In Tomlinson hall for the seven
teenth convention of the United Mine
Workers of America, which began this
morning. . This announcement was made
In the course of the president's annual
report and address almost as an Incidental
remark. There-wss no further explanation
In, regard to the anthracite situation from
President Mitchell, but the word of their
chief ' was enough, and " when, a ' few
minutes later, delegates came In from the
streets . with t a rumor that President
Thomas ' of the Lehigh Valley company
waa reported to have said that the anthra
cite oerators had agreed to hold a con
ference with . the committee appointed by
the mine workers In their Shamokln con
vention the enthusiasm knew no bounds.
'When Mr:' Mitchell had finished reading
his' report Vice : President Thorns L.
Lewis, who had presided during the read
ing of the - president's report, called A. D.
Falrlee, national executive board member
from Alabama, to the chair and Mr. Fair
lee announced the report of the vice presi
dent The report of Vice President Lewis told
of the work "f the organisation, which has
proceeded during the year Just ended at
a tremendous pace and also gave glimpses
of his connection with the adjustment of
many difficulties which arose during the
year In widely separated parts of the coun
try. Secretary-Treasurer Wilson's report
gave the statistics of the organisation in
full and Is a remarkable showing of the
wonderful strength and vitality of the
united mine workers.
Addresses ' of welcome were made by
Governor ' Hanly on behalf of the state;
Theodore Perry, president of the Central
Labor 'union. In behalf of Indianapolis
union labor, and Alfred Potts, president
of the Commercial club, in behalf of
Indianapolis' institutions.
Mayor Bookwalter's letter, welcoming
the miners to the city, was read.
Though the preliminary work of the con
vention, which pressed closely upon the
addresses, was ' long, . the delegates re
mained In their seata and showed great In
terest. The report of the credentials com
mittee seating tbe delegates showed that
1.461 local unions were represented.
' ' L'aion Is Growing.
Mr. Mitchell In his address said that
notwithstanding "opposition of open foes
and professing friends" there had been
a substantial increase in the numerical
strength of the organization, the paid up
membership having passed the 300,000 mark.
The gain In the anthracite field waa 41,677.
President Mitchell said the committee ap
pointed at the Shamokln (Pa.) conference
to confer with representatives of the com
panies fors the purpose of formulating an
agreement was making satisfactory prog
ress. He called attention to the increase
In machine mined coal to 3.78 per cent of
the total production and urged that stren
uous .effort be made to establish a fixed
differential. The executive board.: he said.'
had prepared a bill for presentation to
state legislators, the object of which Is to
provide for the examination of persons
seeking employment In mines and so
prevent the employment of Incompetent
men. The; bill presented In congress for
the, creation of a government bureuu of
mines was' indorsed In the address.
Drafting Sew Wage Scale.
Mr. Mitchell, in speaking of the policy to
be pursued by the miners In the coming
Joint, conference with the coal operators,
saldt ,
I am conscious of the fact that more than
ordinary significance attaches to anything
I may say aa to the policy we should pur
sue when we meet the operators In Joint
convention: especially Is this true at the
present time, when It is well known that
the miners of practically the entire country
will Boon be released of
and that they and their employers will be
compelled In the event of a disagreement
relations0"1 otner me"ns of adjusting their
In connection with this subject It may
not be amiss to review briefly the history
of the recent past.
You will recall the depression In the coal
trade in the fall and winter of 1903, which
culminated In a reduction of wages In the
spring of 19M. The adverse conditions pre
vailing at that time continued during the
year 1104. and even up to the spring of 1906
From that time on there was a gradual Im
provement both In prices and tonnage which
has continued until tho present, and If the
activity In the iron market in the railroad,
Industrial and commercial affulrs of the
country Is any barometer hy which future
conditions may be forecasted, the prospect
of continued prosperity In the mining In
dustry seems assured.
I recognize the fact that there is little
sentiment and no philanthropy In the deter
mination of our general wage agreements-;
however,, it appears to me that Inasmuoh as
we gave relief to our employers by accept
ing a lower rate of wages at a time when
there was little demand for coal, and when
prices were falling below a profitable mar
gin, they should reciprocate and voluntarily
aliare with us their nresent and nrnaructiv'n
prosperity, "and f recommend that the scalu
committee take these facts Into considera
tion in the formulation of its report."
Soareea of Opposition. I
In. the opening paragraph of this report
reference was mode to the obstacles we
have encountered In the work of organization.-
Lest our language he misunderstood
when we speak of "open foes and profess
ing friends.". I desire, even at the risk of
giving offense and Inviting controversy, to
aay that we have been attacked from two
sources which one would expect to be dia
metrically opposed.
First, we have had the Intense opposition
of the Parry-Post aggregation of union
wreckers who have antagonised every effort
we have made to organise tho union fields
of the country, especially the Rrwln, Con
nellsvllle and Meyersdale districts of Penn
sylvania, the Georges Creek district of
Maryland, the state of Colorado and the
two Virginias.
Second, we have been opposed with equal
vigor although with different weapons by
an organization styling Itself the industrial
woraers or ine world, and bv ila nrlncirutl
affiliated body, the Western Federation of
The recognised spokesmen of these or
ganlsatlOHS profess real solicitude for the
Welfare of the coal miners; thev seek to
convey the Impression that the coal miners
are so densely Ignorant that they are
unable to conduct their affairs or success
fully to manage an organization of their
owu choice. Indeed, these self-constituted
advisers, none of whom, to my knowledge,
ever worked in a coal mine In his life, anil
most of whom have made failures if the
several organizations with which they have
been, connected, Justify their attacks upon
us by saying thst we- may make. trad.
agreements which so tie tho hands of our
members as to render us unable to strike
at any time during the year when condi
tions would seem propitious. They lose
sight of the fact that if we had no agree,
menta and were' then-fore at liberty to
strike at our own sweet will, the operators
would have precisely the same right

Crescents against the Blair Commercial col
lege team. Thla turned out to be a very
much one-sided match, the Crescents scor

total score of 61 to 19. Previous to this
game.a preliminary match between the

and high school class A team was put on
and furnished a deal of real sport for the

good players on both teams. Dodds of the
Juniors perhaps being the most notable In

like Westminster,' and provincial seats like
Oxford, where the working class popula
tion Is small, managed to retain unionist
representatives. Otherwise today's story
of the struggle ls a repetition of yester
day's heavily . Increased pollings of
enormous labor votes and discomfiture of
tho unionists, who did not gain a single
scat In today's balloting, but lost twenty
two to the liberals and laborltes.
. The 247 seats already elected for the
new Parliament are distributed aa follows:
Liberals, 127; unionists, 54; laborltes, 28;
nationalists, 88. The solitary unionist gain
at Hastings since the elections began Is
met by a combined liberal and labor gain
of eighty -nine seata.
' The elections In London and ' Liverpool
have not gone so heavily In favor of the
liberals as did those at Manchester, hut
several seats were won In London and two
at Liverpool. In most cases, however, the
unionists retained their seats with greatly
reduced majorities. T. P. O'Connor waa
re-elected for the Scotland division of
Liverpool. At Birkenhead the liberals
gained a seat and at Edinburgh. The la
borltes gained one at Dundee. This Is re
garded as an Important Indication of the
drift of the feeling In Scotland.

Battle In . Blrmlngrtiam Today.
BIRMINGHAM. England, Jan. 16. Thi
city ls resting tonight preparatory to to
morrow's battle at the polls, which prom
ises to be the most sensational In many
years. Few persons venture to forecast tho
verdict. It is evident the unionists are
frightened by the results of the last three
days, particularly that at Dudley, the near
est constituency polled, where the liberals
gained a seat. The' unionists are exerting
every effort. Joseph Chamberlain, con
trary to his usual custom of non-partlclpa-tlon
in the canvass on an election day, has
at the urgent request of his supporters
agreed to visit the polls In hla division to
morrow and, accompanied by Mrs. Cham
berlain, will tour the district.
It la generally believed that two of the
seven divisions tf Birmingham are likely
to be captured by the liberals tomorrow.
At the election of 1900 alx unionists were re
turned unopposed and In the seventh the
unionist majority was 2,150, or almost two
to one. Despite the landslide throughout
the country It ls not believed that Joseph
Chamberlain has lost the personal grip on
his home town that he has held for a third
of a century. According to a statement Is
sued by the unionist committee tonight the
other five districts are safe. The Issue In
Birmingham ls that of straight fiscal re
form, but it is affected by Bide Issues on
which the workingmen are split..
In a speech at Nuneaton, near here to
night Joseph Chamberlain said .he sympa

Manchester. It waa no use, Mr. Chamber
lain said, to attempt to minimise the events
of the lost few days, but it was his belief
that a reaction would soon set In. If 8lr
Henry Campbell-Bannerman thought he
had crushed the agitation for "fair" trade
he waa greatly mistaken, for that agitation,
Mr. Chamberlain declared, would be con
tinued as long as he lived, and after his
death the work would be talten up by
