MISSOURI CAMPAIGN IS OPENED.
Bryan Makes One of His" Characteris
tic Talks on Tariff.
JOPLIN, Mo.. Sept. 9. The Democratic
campaign In Missouri was opened here
this evening at a meeting attended by 6C00
people. W. J. Bryan, who was the prin
cipal speaker, talked at length on the tariff
question, saying, among other things, that
it was time to take the tariff of at least
all kinds of trust-made goods. The coun
try, he said, could not look to the Re
publicans for reform In tariff matters, .add
ing: "There were more righteous men in
Sodom and Gomorrah than there are tariff
reformers in the Republican party."
Ho declared that President Roosevelt, had
no remedy for the trust evil, and that
some of his utterances on the subject were
absurd. Continuing, he said:
"I tell you, one trust magnate in stripes
behind the prison walls would do more
to break up trusts than all the speeches
the President can make. The Constitu
tional amendment the Republicans are
talking about Is not meant for the regula
tion of trusts, . but to take the power
to control trusts away from the states and
bo protect the trusts."

STRIKE AND ELECTIONS.

OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Sept. 9. Republican leaders in the
East are rather apprehensive that the
coal strike is going to seriously affect the
elections this Fall. They recognize that
if the people cannot obtain coal when
cold weather sets in, they will show re
sentment, and are likely to strike at the
party in power, even when that party is
In no way responsible for tho conditions.
The leading politicians are bending
every effort to terminate the coal strike.

Democratic politicians are making' the
most of the coal strike, charging the
Republican party with being responsible
for it. Some are even going to the length j
of saying that taking the tariff off coal 1
would relieve the situation. If the strike
should continue and universal suffering
should follow, it would emohaslzc tnc

'EVf YORK, Sept. 9. Governor "W. A.
Stone, of Pennsylvania,- who made an
effort today to eee what could be done
toward ending the -anthracite .coal strike,
returned to Harrlsburg, Pa., tonight with
out apparently haying been able to ac
complish a settlement. It was rumored
that the Governor's visit had proved suc
cessful, but Gcorgo W. Perkins, of J. P.
Morgan & Co., denied tonight that there
was any change In the situation. "Word to
the same effect was received by long-distance
telephone from President Truesdale,
of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western
Railroad, who Is out of town.
Governor Stone was accompanied to the
city by Attorney-General Elkln, of Penn
sylvania, and Senator Flynn, of Pittsburg.
The three' held a conference of several
ASBURY C. LATIMER,
hours' duration with' P. A. B. WIdener,
of Philadelphia,1 in the office of the United
States Steel Corporation. After the con
ference, Mr. WIdener went to eee'J. P.
Morgan at the latter's office, and asked
him to use his influence to end the strike.
Ten minutes later, he returned to his fel
low cbnfereees and told them that Mr.
Morgan had declined to Interfere.
Before leaving the city. Governor Stone
gave out the following statement:
"Attorney-General Elkln, Senator Flynn
and myself have beeen in consultation for
several hours today with P. A. B. WIdener,
of Philadelphia, who Is a director of the
United States Steel Corporation, and asso
ciated with Mr. Morgan In many business
interests, Mr. WIdener Is very anxious
to sec the strike settled, and today took
the matter up with Mr. Morgan. We are
doing what wo can."
Governor Stone was asked what progress
toward a settlement had been made, and
whether any direct communication had
I been had from Mr. Morgan. He replied
that he had nothing to say beyond what
was contained in his statement, and the
other men to the conference had also been
pledged to silence.
George W. Perkins, speaking for J. P.
Morgan &. Co., said tonight:
"We have no comment to make on Gov
ernor Stone's statement. We have received
no official statement as to what occurred
at the conference, nor have we heard from
Governor Stone slnco the conference

London Nctvspnpcrs Comment on De
crease of American Exports.
LONDON, Sept. 10. The publication of
the report of Secretary Mour-Eell, com
mercial agent of Great Britain In the
United States, on American trade, and
especially Mr. Bell's comment on the re
duction In American exports, has result
ed in a number of expressions of editorial
opinion. The Dally Telegraph makes a
careful analysis of Mr. Mour-Bell's facts
and deductions, and reaches the conclu
sion that the decrease In American ex
ports is merely a warning to Britishers.
"American attacks upon European and
Colonial markets have been weakened
for tho moment only," says, the paper,
"and will be resumed with immensely
Mr. Bell's favorable comments on the
action of the United States Steel, Corpo
ration In not raising the price of steel In
spite of tho demand, for that article,
causes the Dally Telegraph to say:
"ThiB is a signal combination of nerve,
daring and firm judgment which stamps
the personality of the great American
man of business. Mr. Morgan and Mr.
Schwab entirely decline to fulfill the pes
simistic predictions of pur traditional
economists. The managers of the billion
dollar comblno have chosen the better
part with perfect foresight."
This moderation and tacit support of
the economic benefits of tho McKInley
tariff, the Telegraph holds, makes It still
more difficult for President Roosevelt to
deal with the trusts.
Mr. Bell's statement that the railroads
and shipping Interests are combining, so
that when the supply exceeds the demand
tho surplus can be carried to Europe more
economically than ever before, causes the
Da lly"' Telegraph to saV":
"If forewarned was ever forearmed,.,
British manufacturers naye reason to lay
Mr. Bell's warnings seriously to heart
and work while there" Is yet time at the
task of completely modernizing our In
dustrial apparatus, which alone can en
ablo us to" hold our own when the vast
forces of American production are con
centrated once more upon the competition
in foreign trade."
The Standard takes a slmllarllno of ar
gument. Sir Joseph Lawrence, president
of the Machinery Trust, Is quoted as say
ing: "There is no doubt that the United
States and Germany have shot ahead of
us enormously In the Iron and steel In
dustry, hut lt'does not follow that Eng
land Is going to the dogs. Most of our
firms are sending representatives abroad
to pick up Ideas, and I do not think wo
shall go backward."
BRITISH DEEM IT A TRIUMPH.
Question Noyv Arises Whether Anglo
Chinese Treaty Will Please AH..
NEW YORK. Sept. 9. The Anglo-Chl-nesc
treaty Is hailed as a signal triumph
for British diplomacy, and Sir James Mac
kay's achievement in persuading the Chi
nese Government to strike off the heaviest
fetters that have hitherto Impeded for
eign commerce with the Celestial Empire
is lauded to the sklc3, says a London dis
patch to tho Tribune. It Is fully recog
nized, however, that the abolition of the
Ukln cannot be an accomplished fact
without the concurrence of all the pow
ers. Russia has not. yet disclosed her
hand. Her commercial Interests In China
are not Inconsiderable, and she may ob
ject to any arrangement which would be
principally for the benent oi j&ngianu.
Certainly whatever Russia does will be
duly supported by France.
On the other hand, the advantages to all
nations of having Important commercial
relations with China is manifest, and no
opposition 13 anticipated fromA.merlca or
Germany. It is hoped that Russia and
France will consider the treaty on its mer
its and not allow economic reform to be
blocked by any of the difficulties and jeal
ousies which are only too apt to make the
European concert Inharmonious .and Inef
fective. But even assuming that all the
powers approve Sir James Mackay's
agreement, the task of .carrying it out

SURRENDER IS CONFIRMED.
Insurgents Control Agua Dnlce, and
Another Battle Ix Expected.
PANAMA, Sept. 9. The surrender to the
Colombian insurgents of the government
General Morales Berti and the troops of
his command at Agua Dulce. which has
previously been reported, and which was
generally believed to have taken place,
has now been confirmed. This news

Conservative prisoners of the Insurgents,
who were liberated yesterday at San Car
los as a result of the landing there of an
expedition from the government fleet of
General Bertl, who had been besieged
.at Agua Dulce by the Insurgents since
July 8, only surrendered when his cause
was hopeless. In the act of surrender the
Insurgent General Herrera.deelarcs he rec
ognizes tho abnegation of General Bert!
and his men, whom he succeeded in domi
nating because of the superiority of his
forces and the quantity of munitions of
war at his disposal. He promises to hold
invlolate-the lives and honor of his prison
ers, and he allows General Bertl to retain

tion of his heroic defense of Agua, Dulce
The surrendered Generals and offiqers, who
have been paroled, also will not be com

government could not send him timely
General Bertl was very popular, and he
has tho sympathy of everybody In his
present reverse. It Is recognized that he
could not have done otherwise than sur
render. It Is believed that the surrender of Gen
eral Bertl simplifies the situation for Gen
eral Srflazar, Governor of Panama, who
can now devote the forces of his command
to the defense of Panama and Colon. The
national government has appointed Sala
zar supreme commander- of all the govern
ment forces. The strong" entrenchments
which have been erected In and around
Panama are defended by 2300 men, and
there are over 1000 government soldiers at
Colon. Also, a large number of rein
forcements have left Ronda, on the Mag-
dalena River, for the isthmus, and SO0O
more men are expected to come in this
week. General Herrera Is expected to
change his field of operations to the Isth
mus, and he probably will locate his camp
somewhere on the railroad line between
Panama and Colon. It Is believed that a
big battle will take place somewhere be
tween these two ports.
The Conservatives of Panama are very
much disappointed at the delay in the
departure from Seattle, Wash., of the new
Colombian war vessel, the Bogota. It Is
believed that If the Bogota had reached
here In due season the government would
have bqen able to defeat General Herrera
by taking the offensive at sea, and thus
preventing the insurgents from mobilizing
and otherwise carrying cut their plans.
Colombian Legation Not Alarmed.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 9. The officials of
the Colombian Legation profess not to be
seriously alarmed over the surrender of
the forces at Agua Dulce. The number
of Government soldiers there Is estimated
to have been somewhat lcs3 than CWO
men, and, while their loss is a setback.
Colombia's representatives declare the er
fect will be to stimulate the Government
to greater activity to crush out the re
bellion. The general understanding here
has been that the Government had 7W0
men under arms on the Isthmus, wnile
this may be an overestimate, legation offi
cials say there are sufficient men left to
offer strong resistance to any efforts tne
revolutionists may make to take the In
teroceanlc railroad or the cities of Colon
or Panama. The revolutionists are be
lieved to be In the vicinity of thcee
places. Since the capture by the Insur
gents of tho gunboat Boyaca, the gov
ernment Is without naval representation
on the Pacific Coast, though the Bogota,
recently purchased in the United States,
Is now on her way down from Seattle.
This vessel, the officials say. will be more
than a match for the whole rebel fleet.
No advices regarding the surrender of tne
government forces at Agua Dulce have
reached the legation.
