the com mittee on banking as unanimously adopt ed by the International American coufer ttice recently in session in this city It was tlie wish of the conference that this proposition of such great interest to every American republic should as promptly as possible secure the earnest attention of the congnws of the United States Ohutucles To lie Removed Th3 foreign commerce of the nations south of the Gulf of Mexico and the Rio Grande amounts annually to more that At present the United enjoys only a meagre share of this market but the action of the recent cou will result I believe in the remov al of certain obstacles which now tend to obstruct the expansion of our trade One of the most serious of these obstacles is tho llccul absence of a system of direct exchange and credits by reason of which tho exporting and importing merchants of the United States engaged in commerce with Central liiid Slouth America have been compelled to pay the bankers of London a tax upon very transaction Wliat Wo Have to Pay Kurope Lrst year our commerce with the coun tries south o us amounted to S2S3005057 of which the imports of merchandise were valued at nnd the imports of iipecieand bullion were while our exports consisted of merchandise val ued it 71K3S 181 and in specie and bullion OE the merchandise import d into the United States the greater part paid for by remittances to London nnd ihe cities of the continent to cover drafts against European letters of credit For die use of these credits a commission of threequarters of 1 per cent is customarily paid so that the European banks enjoyed ii large profit npon our business with a minimum of risk A Way Ont of tho Trouble This system steadily results iu losses to our merchants in interest and differences in exchange as well as in commissions These losses would be largely reduced to our merchants by the establishment of an iotcrtiatiurial system of banking betwceii the American republics Tho merchants of this country are as dependent upon the bankers of Kurope in their financial transactions with their American neigh bor us they are upon the shipowners of Great Britain for transportation facilities and will continue to labor under these embarrassments uutil direct banking sys tems are established Tho report of the committee hereto attached presents n sim ple and easy method of relief nnd the en

nents of the proposed law regard ing orig inal packages did most of the talking in the senate yesterday when that measure camu up nud the principal speaker was EustLs of Louisiana He said that the question was a very perplexing one The difficulty in question arose in the attempt 1 to reconcile the conflict between the rights of property under the constitution and laws and tho moral sentiment known as Prohibition He considered that the bill proposed was a nullification of a provision of the constitution He said it was pro posed to legislate against the breweries of Milwaukee and St Louis and the distil leries oC Kentucky Illinois North Caro lina and Now Hampshire What llo Expected Xext Tomorrow they would be asking for ex clusion of cottonseed oil of which the state of Louisiana produced n large amount in value then they would be ask ing that dressed beef from Illinois and to ll baccu from North Carolina should not be J considered articles of commerce within the meaning of the constitution He was 01 a states right Democrat of tho strictest ss sect nnd wns in favor of the states exercis ing to nn unlimited extent the rights which they had reserved But the powers which they had lodged iu the federal gov eminent and lodged wisely he wanted the federal government to exercise exclu sively Grny Thinks Gray stated the constitutional difficulties involved in the question and said that the richt of congress to regulate commerce bad not taken away one iota of the police powers of the state He did not think it a delegation of the power of congress to say thatthe original

Go Back to Germany to Like Polish Jaws and Certain Remark Regarding Anarchists and So CHICAOO May congressional libcommittee on immigration held its iecond meeting in this city yesterday the nost interesting witness being Herman Raster of The Staats Zeitung He said hat the percentage of foreign bAin citi zens of Chicago was about 28 rind he numbers in detail as near could give them as follows Of Germans counting children born of German parents here must be 233000 Of the Irish it is more difficult to say as fiiey are so easily amalgamated with native Americans but there are about 150000 of these The Poles probably number 90000 as they lave one churnh which has 80000 member ship There are probably 40000 Swedes aud Norwegians bat this may be too low I estimate the Bohemians at 40000 to 50 000 The Italians can only be approxi mated at from 12000 to 15000 and there may be 1000 Chinese A Point of Importance Proceeding Mr Raster snid that he thought he was safe in saying that there are nine marriage licenses issued to foreign era for each one issued to Americans Owen explained that America was receiving from 400000 to 600000 immigrants annually and that tlie object of the investigation was to find through reputable sources where these people go where they congregate and what changes in civilization and local life resulted from it ForeignersUecoinc vrorkingmen Mr Raster was able to give little light on this subject but he declared that there was 110 other city in the country where foreigners so rapidly became work ingrnon and so certainly became home owners as Chicago We are far more an industrial city than a commercial city Ninetenths of the Germans in the city are workingmen and the small remainder only are speculators Aa to Education What education have they Common school only and the per cent that cannot read and write varies from i to 3 per cent When asked the attitude of the Germans to the common school system he said Generally they are friendly

WENT OFF lint Its Fragments AVlicre Are Tliey Dynamite Experiment PFrHYVULE N Y May large number of people from all over central York came here by the special and regular midday trains yesterday to wit ness the public experiment of the Dr Jus tin dynamite gun The cannon was fired at 3 p m and exploded into a thousand pieces Nobody was hurt but there were many narrow escapes Huge masses of iron were thrown hundreds of feet On Hie Trail of a BTrspapcr Man A piece of the cannon measuring about four feet through went flying through the air aud landed within three feet of The Svracxise Herald correspondent who was watching the proceedings from behind a tree Another large piece went in the op posite direction tearing a large chunk from the counter of n temporary refresh ment stand about 500 feet away The keeper of the stand was inside and the missile grazed his bead and scattered the j contents of the stand Exactly but How do Tltey Know It is said that the dynamite did not es the only opposition I think is just the op position that comes from people who pre er to pay for u thing rather than have it given them Owen Strikes His Hobby Owen then struck his hobby Tell us Mr Raster he said what per cent of foreigners secure a fortune in this country and carry it home to Europe He didnt make his point Germans at least he said are very domestic and I think the proportion of those who take money back to Europe is very small indeed They dont go back there to live When a fordgner gets 81000 he wants Then he wants He niij go back to visit his old home but he is here to live as a rule Two Objectionable Classes During the last five years what class of immigrants to you find objectiona ble Two only that I think class of Polish Jews and a certain Italian that comes from the heel of the peninsula or Apulia These latter are detestable nud worth nothing in any community The important portion of what Mr Raster hud to say was theii brought out in answer to What means would you sug gest to avoid this objectionable In answer to which he spoke at length Qualifications for Citizenship Each foreigner must be able to read and write his own language I dont mean that they must be literary people but they must be able to undertandmore than their own name To this I would have the con sul in each country issue to each immi graut about to sail a pamphlet in his own language containing an explanation of the laws of our country and such other information as may be desirable Is this the general opinon of the Ger mans in I think t is and it certainly is the unanimous opinion
