to have arisen between the various South
African railway administrations ns u re
sult of the opening of the new line from
Betheiehem to Kroonstad. It will be re
membered that the line was constructed
by the Natal government under nn agree

The rates which the Central South Afri

to charge In respect of It were bssnd on
that agreement, and were published last

The publication a few days ago of the
report of the estates commissioners under
the land purchase act of 1903, for the year
ending Murch 31, has given rle to much

missioners, Mr, Bailey and Mr. Flnucane,
and their senior colleague, Mr. Wrench.

MADRID, Oct e (Special Cablegram to

In a kind of suspended animation. Before
It should have come Into operation, on July
1 last, the British government represented
to Spain that the new duties) would affect
the trade in British woolens and cottons,
in machinery and cutlery and other manu
factures, and also seriously In coal. At
the same time Spanish ministers are In ac
tive negotiation with various foreign gov
ernments for the rearrangement of com
America has practically come under an
agreement whereby it Is to ray the mini
mum duties of the new tariff for the pres
ent, and obtain the benefit of any reduc
tions that may be made in the most favored
nation scale hereafter. In return for ac
cording inost-favored-ndtlon treatment to
Spanish goods. Special reductions, how
ever, will be granted on the duties on Span
ish wlnea and fruit entering the I nlted
States, under the clause of the Dlngley act,
which authorizes the president to make
such concessions without referring to con
gress. Under this agreement America ob
tains equal treatment with the great manu
facturing countries of Europe, and also
with the producers of brcadstuffs like Rus
sia and Roumaulu. The hope and expecta
tion of the Spanish government Is to ef
fect similar agreements with all the South
American republics, but this ' at present
seems at tiest doubtful. Switzerland, the
repeal of the treaty with which was the
Immediate cause of the all-round fiscal dis
turbance, has not yet agreed to a new
commercial treaty, and has not even as
sented to a modus Vivendi by continuing
the old convention till the end of the year,
though it is stated In Madrid that negotia
tions have at last been opened at Berne
which promise an amicable settlement.
Meanwhile, however. Spanish goods enter
ing Switzerland are paying the highest
duties on the Swiss tariff, plus a surcharge
of 50 per cent, and Swiss goods entering
Spain also pay the highest duties, plus Ml
per cent. Such are the practical pleasan
tries of tariff quarrels. Germany has
struck a convention with Spain to place
their respective Imports on most-favored-natfon
treatment until the end of this year,
by which time - it Is hoped that a new
treaty will lie drafted. German goods en
tering Spain are, therefore, now paying the
duties in the second column of the revised
Spanish tariff, while Spanish goods enter
ing Germany are taxed on the lowest scale
of the Imperial tariff. France and Italy
have been till now, as standoffish aa Switz
erland. France Is, next to Great Britain,
the largest customer of Spain. The trade
has suffered through protection!; on both
sides, and France now resents the summary
termination of the most -favored-nation
agreement which has existed between the
two countries for a dozen years.

now stated that there is jio present In
tention of depurting from the program
originally outlined for the dispatch of
troops for Cuba, and within a few hours
It Is expected that some of the troopships
will be leaving Newport News for Ha

In addition lo those originally ordered to
Cuba will be sent,' it is now declared, will
depend entirely upon Secretary Taft's re

Marines Disarm Rebels,
HAVANA, Oct. 6. A detachment of 2J0
insurgents toduy rode Into the Caridad
suburb of the city of Puerto Principe wav
ing machetes and threatening people.
Twenty American inarlnea from the de
tachment on duty at Puerto Principe went
to Caridad, dispersed the Insurgents and
arrested thirty-nine of them. General
Caba Hero, tho insurgent leader, with 100
men, thereupon proceeded to the head
quarters of the commander of the marines
dnd demanded the release of the captured
Insurgents. Instead of releasing them the
Americans disarmed Caballcro and all of
his followers who could bo caught. There
upon Caballero promised that all the In
surgents under his co-mvutd would dis
arm. Governor Taft today said he had no in
tention of turning back any part of the
expedition of 5,600 regular troops ordered
to Cuba. He feels that, this number Is
needed as a precaution against future
trouble. The question of pride as to which
sldu shall lay down their arms flint is
causing soma difficulty in Plnur del Bio as
elsewhere. Even the municipal police havo
been temporarily disbanded In some In
stances as a precaution against clashes.
Getting the Insurgents home and break
ing up their organizations Is believed by
Mr. Taft to be of far more Importance
than getting them to lay down their arms,
although this does not mean that the dis
armament committee la not vigorously
pressing the demand for the dlsarmamc.it

Airship a Great Card- . .
"The airs, !p was a great expense, cost
ing us over 13,000, but It was a great card
and we wore bound to have tho latest
and best attraction which was to be had.
Mr. Hamilton made three successful nights
and for these he earned an extra 11. One.
The wind has kept him from making fur- I
ther ascensions, although we offered a nlco
bonus If he would fly while tho crowds
were here. The New Parker Amusement
company brought tis the cleanest and
finest lines of. shows we have over been
able to place before tho public .and wo
were rewareled for our chol by having
these shows turn Into our treasury over
20 per cent more than did any previous
shows. It shows the people want some
thing of mnrlt and will putroulze what
they want to see.
"You remember I told you we did not
look for much larger crowds than we had
latt, year, as It Is almost Impossible for
the rail rood a to bring In. more, but still
there were more and all were pleased.
The board was especially pleased with
the Initiation. Last year, with a hustling
committee Working over slje weeks, wu
had 1,028 members and this year, without
any hustling committee, we see-u rod 1,044
members. The laat member was received
today when W. A. Paxton sent us a, check
for $10, saying he was slighted this year
and did not propose to be cut out from
membership just because some one would
not auk him to Join. He made the last
member und, of course, without the hust
ling committee many were overlooked whit
would have Joined."
So Fakes (or the People.
Emll Brandets, chairman of the amuse
ment committee, was not to be outddue
by Mr. Pcnfold by the breadth of his
smile snd said: "I think from what 1
have seen that the people were better
satisfied with tho entertainment we pro
vided this year than ever before. I know
from my own experience and from talk
ing with other merchants thst mora
money was spent In Omaha this week
than during sny other carnival period.
The proceeds gave eminent satisfaction,
this year, as well as the shows and the
airship. When I took charge of this com
mittee three years ago I laid down tha
law that aa long as I was connected with
th amusement committee no moro fakes
would go. For that reason we spent a
lot of money on the airship and It madu
good. The parades were not fakes, but
were the real stuff and that is what all
may export in the future."
"You might suy for me," said Charles H.
lie kens of the- Board of Governors, "thst
there were altogether Uio many merchants
In this city who derived Immense benefits
from the parades who did not subscribe
a rent to the fund. Our parades this year
cost us lit;, owl, or tl00 more than last
year, and of this the committee was ablt
to raise but fX.&tO from the merchants.
We took the teb-phone book early In ths
season and picked out VaO firms whom wa
thought should sutmcTtbe to fhs fund be
cause of the benefits they, would derive.
Although we wroto five different letters to
eauh of these, we received substantial re
sponses from but S00, or less than one-thlrc
who should subscribe. This Is not right,
for It takes all the money we can make on
' the carnival grounds to make up the deficit
In the parade fund. Suppose bad weather
rhpuld ftrikn us, where would we be? We
would then have to go forth and make up
the loss from the people who had do

saved the day for us and we ars on vel
