ENDS THE TREATY
:Germany Will Not Make Amer
ica Favored Nation.
TO MEET NEW TARIFF DEAL
-yew Treaties With European Na
tions Ground for Opposing
Treaty TVIUi United States.
Tariff War Possible.
BERLIN, April 26. The Imperial govern
ment, preparatory to -excluding In
United States from the privileges of the
new reciprocity treaties signed recently
fwith-seyen European states, has formally
notified the American Government that
itho tariff agreement between Germany
amd the United States of July 10, 1300,
will terminate March 1 lfiOC, the flay the
.mew treaties go into effect, but that Ger
snany stands ready to negotiate a reci
procity treaty with the United States.
This notification, made by Foreign Sec
retary von Rlchbofen, March 14, after the
decision of the Cabinet, stated that the
treaties concluded with. Russia, Italy, Bel
gium, Switzerland, Austria-Hungary, Rou
ananla and Servla, "form a new basis,"
eo reads the text, "for tho commercial
relations of Germany and the imperial
government holds itself prepared to. enter
into negotiations for the conclusion of a
Tiew commercial treaty with the United
The German lew, as hold at the For
eign Office nd at the 'Ministry of the In
terior, Is that the United States cannot
reasonably expect to share In special
benefits given by Germany to certain'
European states In exchange for other
Epecific tariff reductions. Should the
United States have the same advantage
.without giving anything In return, the
treaty countries could justly complain
"that they were In effect discriminated
against because from them certain things
"were exacted by bargain which were free
ly given to the United States. But if the
United States desires to take tip the gen
eral tariff question and arrange a recipro
cal agreement, Germany will be glad to
do so. Otherwise, Germany's new gen
eral tariff, which also goes into effect
March 1, 1906, will be applied to imports
from the United States.
The Government, in terminating the
present modus Vivendi, has done what
Agrarians have asked for since the new
commercial treaties were concluded. Pub
lic opinion in Germany has also been
fully prepared for the Government's act
by publications of the Commercial Treaty
Association, and the Central European
Industrial League and articles in the
.principal financial periodicals written by
persons in affiliation with the Ministry
of the Interior, although the news is not
yet published here.

MAX RAISE ISSUE IN SENATE
German Demands Likely to Make
New Treaty Necessary.
WASHINGTON. April 25. It is ad
mitted at the State Department that
pourparlers have been In progress for
the last three months between the Amer
ican Embassy, at Berlin, and the German
Foreign Office, respecting the commer-J
clM.treatles, put -so far Ambassador
Tower, has not notified the Department
that the German government has decided
to terminate the existing arrangement
with-tha United States. The effect of a
formal declaration of that kind would
be. very serious, it is feared, and Mr
Tower is now engaged in one of the most
difficult and complex tasks which he has
yet been called upon to discharge. If
tho arrangement Is denounced and no
substitute Is found, then it may be that
tho United States and Germany will soon
become involved in a tariff war which
would certainly prove disastrous to one
or both of the principals. In view of the
vast amount of trade between the two
countries which would be affected.
The situation in brief at this moment
is as follows:
In June, 1TO0 a reciprocity arrangement
was entered into between America and
Germany under section 3 of the Dlngley
act. whereby, in return for a reduction of
duty on German brandies, still wines and
works of art entering the United States,
Germany agreed to give United States
products the benefit or tariff reductions
accorded to the European countries above
named. Germany now has drawn new
conventions with those countries, chang
ing the tariff rates, and Is disposed to
refuse tho United States the benefit of
these special rates under the old Dlngley
convention. The State Department holds
that the now conventions are nothing
more than amendments of the original
treaties, and that therefore the spirit of
'the Dlngley act agreement would seem to
cause it to apply with equal force to the
new conventions. Correspondence Is now
passing to clear up this difference of
In, the background is a well-recognized
purpose on the part ot- the German gov
rmncnt to cause the United States great
ly to enlarge the list of articles named in
the Dlngley agreement, but, as these are
limited specially In the Dlngley act, that
object can be attained only by tho nego
tiation "of an entirely new reciprocity
treaty. If the German government de-
snounces the present agreement, the United
States either must conclude such a reol
p'roclty treaty or submit to the withdrawal
-b'f the moet-favored-natlon privilege and
the imposition on American imports Into
Germany of full maximum tariff rates.
which in-many cases will be practically
prohibitive and probably would cause such
an outcry from the great exporting inter
ests of this country as would force Con
gress to retaliatory legislation and mark
the beginning of a great tariff wan
If Mr. Tower is finally imprepsed with
4the soundness of the German contention
respecting the Inapplicability of the exist
ing arrangement to the new European
treaties and proceeds to draft a reciprocity
treaty. the Issue will be transferred
squarely to the United States Senate at Its
next session. This outcome, it is stated,
BLAST AT ROCKEFELLER
Delivered by Gladden at Secret Sleet
ing of Clergy.
BOSTON. April 26. Dr. Washington
Gladden, of Columbus, O., moderator of
the General Council of Congregational
Churches of the United States, was the
principal speaker at a secret meeting to
day of Congregational ministers Invited
to assemble by the clergymen's committee
which is protesting against the acceptance
for religious purposes by the denomina
tion and Its affiliated societies of gifts
from John D. Rockefeller. Dr. Gladden's
remarks were embodied in a statement,
which will be given to the public tomor
row. The committee in charge of today's
meeting was appointed originally to pro
test against Mr. Rockefeller's gift of $100.
000 to the American Missionary Board.
Referring to th6 statement made last
night by Starr J. Murphy, Mr. Rockefel
ler's counsel, to the effect that Dr. Glad
den's criticism of Mr. Rockefeller was
based on a "garbled report,". Dr. Gladden
said to a representative cf the Associated
I have no statement to make at thla time,
except to eay that I cannot make & formal
answer to II r. Murphy -until I have had an
opportunity to so to the library and look up
the testimony to which reference has been
made. I suppOEed, of course, that the criti
cisms which I cited had been accurately made.
They have been standing for a number of
years, and have been quoted In several booka,
and have never, to my knowledge, been ques
tioned. I used the exact words of the cita
tion as It appears in Henry D. Lloyd's book,
"Wealth Against Commonwealth." and I am
of the opinion that the nmt citation appears
in Miss Tarbell's "History ot the Standard
Oil Company.' '
Aa opportunity offers, I shall prepare an an
swer to Mr. Murphy, and make it public
through the Associated Press.
FOR GRAY'S HARBOR' RUN
Toledo Will Be Ready for First Trip
v Next "Week.
The steamer Toledo will reach Portland
early next week to- make her flret run
to Gray's Harbor points. After the first
trip she will leave Portland on Mondays
and Fridays, going to Westport, Hoqulam
and Aberdeen. This is the first boat to
run regularly to Gray's Harbor for a long
time. Before the railroad entered the
Gray's Harbor territory the steamers paid
well, and now that the towns around the
harbor have grown to their present size
tt is considered that a steamer plying reg
ularly will be a paying venture.
The Toledo left Eureka for San Fran
cisco Tuesday night. As soon as emptied,
she will probably take on another load,
and start for Portland as soon as pos
sible. Advance In War Risks.
An advance. of per cent In. -War-rlsk-lnsurance
wag '.yesterday declared effect
ive upon cargoes for Oriental ports. Up
to yesterday the Insurance was 1 per
cent; now It is 2 per cent.
' Before much flour goes to Japan, how
ever, the rates will probably undergo a
change, as by that time the Impending
battle between the Russian and Japanese
fleets will probably have been fought, and
a different aspect put upon Oriental af
fairs, so far as risks on cargoes go. Tho
Nicomedla is expected to start westward
across the Pacific today. She will load
flour here next month, and this load may
be subject to tho new Insurance rates.

HUNTERS M REST
All Worn Out After Two Days'
BROWN BEAR SKIN TAKEN
President Drives Animal Up Tree
and Shoots Him Through Heart
News of World Carried to
Camp by Secretary Loeb.
GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Col., April 25.
A rest was taken at Camp Roosevelt
today by all members of the party. They
were utterly worn out after their hard
chase of Monday and Tuesday. Secre
tary Loeb found the President reading
and several others ot the hunters were
telling stories when he reached the camp
on East Divide Creek.
Mr. Roosevelt questioned the Secretary
concerning the happenings of the past
few days; preferring to get his news In
this manner rather than by reading the
big bundle of newspapers taken to the
camp by Courier Chapman. Mr. Loeb
was urged to remam several dayg with
the party, taking the place of P. B. Stew
art, ot Colorado Springs, who left yester
day. He has not decided what he will do,
but expectB to return tomorrow night.
He may hunt a part of the day before
riding to Newcastle.
Women of Newcastle sent a huge fruit
cake to the camp today, and Dan Mc
Pherson, a rancher, sent a basket of sev
eral dozen fresh eggs. The supplies were
addressed directly to the President, but
are a special, treat for the hunters.
The bear killed by the President on
Monday furnished one ot the finest skins
ever seen here, according to the taxider
mist with whom It has been left for
mounting. The bear was brown, with hair
long and uniform in color. It wbb shot
directly through the heart. After it had
been overtaken by the dogs it went up
a tree to a position 25 feet high and after
the President shot the bear it went 20 feet
higher and then dropped to the ground
The bear killed by Dr. Alexander Lambert
was killed an hour earlier.
The President may attend church ser
vices at the "Old Blue Schoolhouse" on
next Sunday. The schoolhouse is only
three miles from camn. Services are con
ducted fortnightly by a Presbyterian min

German Scientist Says It Injures
Health of Children.
WASHINGTON, D. C, April 26. (Spe
cial.) German scientists have decided that
afternoon school work does great Injury
to growing children. After carefully
studying tne subject, Dr. Otto Dornbluth,
a famous nervous specialist of Frankfort,
has issued a statement, in which he de
clares that the number of sick among
children attending morning and afternoon
sessions was by one-half greater than
among children who attended sessions in
the forenoon only. United States Consul
General Guenther, reporting the matter to
the State Department, says that Dr.
Dornbluth favors a morning session of
five hours, giving a resting pause of 15
minutes at the end of each hour.
"He says that Afternoon sessions ex
haust the vitality of the children," writes
Mr. Guenther, "disturb their digestive or
gans and tire their brain. From a med
ical standpoint, afternoon sessions should
be abolished. The afternoon hours should
be given to play, outdoor exercise and
