DISCONTENT AMONG NATIVES.
Americans Are Appointed to Judicial
Positions In the Philippines.
MANILA, May 24. Discontent among
the natives at the appointment of
American Judges and discriminations ln
the civil service in favor of Americans
is finding expression, encouraged by
some native Judges who are aware that
reorganisation of the Judiciary will re
sult In the loss of their positions.
Judge Neer, of the court of first In
stance, of Tondo, one of the leaders of
what Is beginning to be called the radi
cal wing of the federalists, declared
today that If such things continue
there will be a second revolution. It is
undeniable that most of the nai've
Judges lack the competence required.
BUSINESS MEN DISTURBED.
Afraid of the Increase ln Power of
American InJustrial Combinations.
NEW YORK, May 24. General Man-
ager Gustav H. Schwab, of the North
German Lloyd Steamship Company in
America, who has been ln Europe for
the last two and a half months and
who returned home on the Kaiser Wil
helm der Grosse, In an interview upon
business conditions in Europe said:
"While In Europe, especially in Ger
many and England, I saw, that the
business men there were muofc disturb
ed over the Increasing competition
from this side and seemed to fear the
Increase In power of industrial combi
nations. The alarm is so great that I
am certain that some scheme of self
protection on the part of the govern
ments affected will undoubtedly be per
fected. "Of course thT are great difficulties
to be met in forming an Industrial and
commercial combination against the
United States, but there Is every rea
son to believe that earnest efforts ef
forts thit may have serious conse
quence to the trade of this country
will be made.
"I heard similar talk In Germany
which resulted In my becoming firmly
convinced that commercial and Inter
national peace between this country and
the European nations Imperatively calls
for certain concessions on our part,
without affecting our own industries.
Unless we do mike some kind of con
cessions, Europe will, as sure as fate,
put some kind of a restraint duty on
Referring to the reported steamship
combination effected by J. P. Morgan.
Mr. Schwab said:
"The British public is giving it a lot
of concern but to the average steam
ship man who understands the situa
tion It does not seem to be nearly so
dangerous as some people think. As an
American, speaking as the agent of a
German trans-Atlantic line, I do not
think the reported amalgamation will
affect the continental lines. Germany
will certainly keep abreast of the times
in the matter of ships whether of great
cargo capacity or of speed.

LONDON, Itiy 84. An explosion oc
curred this morning at the Universal
colliery at Seughenydd. in the Rhondda
valley. Tbe rescuers are working with

The rescuers have found a few bodies

brought out alive.

day. without a redu3tlon ln wages, on
all railroads In the country. On rail
roads which fail to comply with this
demand, a strike will be ordered. This
recommendation will be made In
O'Cor.nelfs annual report.
O'Connell says that such a strike
would Involve probably one hundred
thousand men. Including 40,000 machin
ists. The policy will be to enforce the
demand by tying up practically the en
tire mechanical service of the roads.
It was simply a matter of policy, he
said, that railroads were not Included
in the present strike. O'Connell said
the outlook of the present strike was
