He Outlines Four AVays to Meet Hos
tile Tariffs of Foreign Countries; -.
but Expresses No Prefer- ;
ence for Any of Them.
CLEVELAND, O., May 30. The 56th an
nual dinner of the Chamber of Commerce
was-held here "tonight,: with 309 persons In
Leslie M. Shaw, Secretary of the Treas
ury, spoke - cm "Nonpaatlsan Statesman
ship." He said in part:
Ways of Meeting Discrimination,
I cannot believe that any country se
riously considers Imposing new and severe
discriminations against the people of the
United States. Such action would be most
unfortunate from every point of view to
both countries. Certain it is the United
States has done nothing and will do noth
ing to invite such a course. If. however,
at any time anj country should do this,
and I wish expressly to say that I refer
to no particular country, for some coun
tries already do it, then- there remain
for the people of the United States .four
possible-policies. Without expressing an
opinion as to their relative merits. 1 will
state them concisely an possible. The re
sponsibility of determination rests alone
Four Alternative Policies.
First The United States could. continue
her present policy of reserving to her
own people some advantages in her own
markets and making no discriminations
against others. There are those who. ad
vocate this course.
Second We could yield to the demand
of those countries which threaten adverse
tariff legislation and give to their people
material advantages over those which
make no such discriminations. There are
those in this country, I am told, who
favor material reducttbns-in present tar
iffs on merchandise coming from certain
countries and the enforcement bf present
rates as against others. I think they call
Third We could materially reduce all
our tariff schedules, leaving it to the mag
nanimity of others lo emulate our gener
osity. There are those, and I am told
there are many, who advocate this policy.
Without expressing an opinion as to tne
merits of the proposition, I venture to
suggest that even the free-trade policy
of Great Britain does not exempt her
from discriminations by countries which
adopt the discriminating policy, nor from
the demand that the United States shall
join In discriminations against her.
Fourth Plan Is Retaliation.
Fourth The only remaining course pos
sible to be pursued is for the United
States to make discriminations against
the countries which discriminate against
us. I have heard it intimated that an
amendment to our present tariff laws is
likely to e proposed at the next session,
but with what prospect of passage I can
not say. substantially as follows:
"Be it enacted. That, whenever any
country grants to the neonle of any bther
country privileges within Its markets i
wnicn are wunneid from tne people of the
United States, then and In all isuch in
stances the tariff duties on all merchan
dise coming from those countries showing
such preferences shall be per cent
highpr than provided In the schedules of
existing tarKt laws." .
This would constitute a maximum and
minimum tariff, the maximum to be en
forced only against such countries as ex
act a .maximum rate against us.
I understand that those who advocate
this course meet the charge that it means
tariff war" "with the suggestion that the
United States will not first declare such a
war. Being forced to follow the example
of other countries "Is not the equivalent
of a declaration of war. while yielding to
the demand that the United States shall
discriminate against those who do discrim
inate against her might involve neutral
powers In a universal tariff war. Such a
war would necessarily harm us, but it
would harm more seriously still those who
drove us into it. The United States pre
fers to treat all alike, and fully appre
ciates like treatment by others.
ASKS PRESIDENT TO ACT
New York Wants Xatlonnl Investiga

NEW" YORK, May 20. President Roose
velt has been requested to take cognizance
of the situation that has brought out
the Equitable Life Assurance Society trou
ble, and to institute a National investi
gation of the insurance business as it is
This request was made by W. F. King,
former president of the Merchants' As
sociation of this city, who has written
the President as a policy-holder in sev
eral companies, asking that such an In
vestigation be made under the Interstate
Commerce law. Should this course be
deemed practicable, Mr. King asks the
President to appoint a National commis
sion on the lines of the Coal Commission,
that settled the anthracite strike, to make
an inquiry and report.
"In case the President decides that he
has no jurisdiction," said Mr. King, "it
is my purpose to form a committee prior
to tho convening of Congress to start an
agitation In every state by sending out

Governor Higgins Advised to Propose
Action at Extra Session.
NEW YORK, May 20. (Special.) It was
learned this afternoon that there is every
likelihood of Governor Higgins naming
life insurance as one of the subjects ot
consideration by the extra session of the
Legislature, which is .to be called pri
marily to try the charges against Justice
Warren B. Hooker. Close friends of the
Governor have been urging him to take
a stand on the insurance question ever
since it became a settled fact that there
would have to be an extra session.
Senator Alfred R. Page, it is understood,
is among Governor Higgins' advisers- in
this matter and, .should the Governor de
cide to Include Insurance In the call for
the extra session, will most likely draw
the stipulation. Legislation that he is
said to - have under way will form the

The Petit Journal says this fact was,

LONDON. May 20. Not since the war
in the Far East began has the tension I
bere been so great as .at present, and
in military and naval circles the ex

past three months General Lintevitch
has been actively engaged in getting
his troops ready for a decisive con
flict and that they are In better shape
than at any time since the outbreak
of hostilities. That being the case,
Oyama will have bis work cut out to
secure a victory, especially as the
Russians can withdraw to the banks

Compares His Trial to That of Car

Evidence Was Direct.
CHICAGO, May 20. (Special.) Convict
ed of wife-murder, Johann Hoch dis
coursed sarcastically today about the
Jury that convicted him and claimed the
police did not give him a "square deal."
Comparing the action of the car-barn
bandits' jury, where the evidence was all
direct, with his trial, in which it was all
circumstantial, he said:
"Now, look at the difference between
my case and that ot the car-barn bandits,
who were tried In the same court last
year. I am guiltless and the facts are
clear. In the other case the bodies of
three victims had bullets In them. The
criminals boasted about their crimes. Yet
the jury was- out a day and a half, if I
am informed correctly.
"Here Is ,the difference in my caser Jo
hann Hoch was found guilty by the Jury
in ten minutes. The first ballot was
taken at most a minute after the Judge
finished his Instructions. Then Bailiff

stated the first stood ten for hanging and
.two for imprisonment. Another ballot
was Voted. This time the result was that
all the 12 men voted to hang me. That
wag quick work, when It Is remembered
that Judge Kersen thought enough of the
importance of the case to read over 60
Instructions and say that a man's life
was. at stake.
"The eating of the dinner and the tak

altogether only a "little more than an

lasted exactly one month, and you will
see at once that there was something

When a "Hercules" boy is out
on pleasure bent and the clouds
commence to gather black and
drizzle rain, does his mother
worry about his getting wet to
the skin? Never; she has no
occasion to; she knows that he
will stay out in the rain, that's
boy nature, but she knows, too,
that he is wearing a "Hercules"
shower-proof suit. '
Our claim that a "Hercules"
boys' suit is shower-proof isn't
an advertising dodge; it is a fact.
If a manufacturer can waterproof
cloth and cut it up into raln-coata,
that usage proves shower-proof, why
can't we do the same thing and cut
up the cloth in Boys' Suits? That's
Just what we do. The cloth we use
in Boys' "Hercules" suits Is put
through the rain-coat shower-proof
process before we make it up; then
whyWt a "Heresies" Boys' Suit
a rain coaFtoo?
In fact, a "Hercules" suit is mor
thoroughly shower-proof than most
rain-coats, especially the cheaper
kind; the cloth is better quality,
closer woven and AdT WOOL.
"Hercules" afevtade in. iwo-fiiece,
knee-partis suits for Boys from 6
to j6; and your boy will get more
wear out of a "Hercules" than
any suit for which you fay half
as much again for.
Your dealer's name and "Hercules'
book if you ask.
