List session of the International Congress a Secretary Blaines welcoming Addre the Maine statesman elected president of the conference a lunch at the a White ii oct 2.�?the International Congress was formally opened in the diplomatic chamber of the state departments yesterday. All the Mem Bers of the United states Aud foreign delegations were present a cordial and Iress of Welcome was delivered by Secretary Blaine. He said chant linux of the International conference speaking for the government of the United states i b d you Welcome to this capital. Speaking for the people of the United states i bid you Welcome to every Section and to every state in the Union. You come in response to an invitation extended by the president on the spec Al authorization of Congress. Your presence Here is no Ordinary event. It sign fies much to the people of All America to Day. It May signify far More in the Days to come. No conference of nations has Ever assembled to consider the welfare of territorial possessions so vast and to contemplate the possibilities of a future so great and so inspiring. Those now sitting it twin these Walls Are empowered to speak for nations whose Borders Are on both the great oceans whose Northern limits Are touched by the Arctic Waters for 1,000 Miles beyond the Straits of Behring whose Southern Extension furnishes human habitations farther below the Equator than is else where possible on the Globe. The aggregate territorial extent of the nations Here represented Falls but Little Short of 12,000,000 of Square Miles More than three times the area of All Europe and but Little less than one fourth part of the Globe while in respect to the Power of producing the articles which Are essential to human life and those which minister to life a luxury they constitute even a larger proportion of the entire world. These great j of sessions to Day have an aggregate population approaching 120, i ,000, but if peopled As densely As the average of Europe the total quid tier would exceed 1.000,0 0,000. While considerations of this character must inspire , both South and North with the liveliest anticipations of future grandeur and Power they must also impress them with a sense of the gravest responsibility touching the character and development of their respective nationalities. The delegates whom i am addressing can do much to establish permanent relations of Confidence respect and Friendship Between the nations which they represent. They can show to the world an honorable and peaceful Confer Enos of seventeen Independent american Powers in which All shall meet together on terms of absolute Equality a conference in which there can be no attempt to coerce a single Delegate against his own Conception of the interests of his nation a conference which will permit no secret understanding on any subject but will frankly publish to the world All its conclusions a conference which will tolerate no spirit of Conquest but will aim to cultivate an american sympathy As Broad As both continents a conference which will form no selfish Alliance against the older nations from which we Are proud to claim inheritance a conference in Tine which will seek nothing propose nothing endure nothing that is not in the general sense of All the delegates timely and Wise and peaceful. And yet we can not by expected to forget that our common Fate has made us inhabitants of the two continents which at the close of four centuries Are still regarded beyond the sea As the new world. Like situations beget i be sympathies and impose like duties. We meet in the firm belief that the nations of America ought to be and can be More helpful each to the other than they now Are and that each will find advantage and profit from an enlaces Intercourse with Tho others. A we believe that we should be drawn together More closely by the highways of the sea and that at no Distant Day the railway systems of the North and South will meet upon the isthmus and connect by land routes the political and commercial Cap tals of All America. We believe Tubaj Hearty co operation based on Hearty Confidence will save All Amer lean states from the burdens and evils which have Long a d cruelly afflicted the older nations of the world. We believe that a spirit of Justice of common and equal interest Between the Quot states will leave no room for an artificial balance of Power like unto that which has led to wars abroad and drenched Europe in blood. We believe that Friendship avowed with Candor and maintained with Good Faith will remove from american states the necessity of guarding Boundary lines Between themselves with fort of cations and military Force. We believe that standing armies beyond those which Are needful for Public order and the safety of internal administration should of unknown on both american continents. We believe that Friend Shir and not Force the spirit of just Law and not the violence of the mob should be the recognized Rule or administration Between american nations and in american nations. these subjects and those which Are cognate thereto the attention of this conference is earnestly and cordially invited by the government of the United states. It will be a great gain when we shall acquire that common Confidence on which All International Friendship must rest. It will be a greater gain when we shall be Able to draw the people of All american nations into closer acquaintance with each other an end to be by More frequent and More rap d intercommunication. It will be the greatest gain when the personal and commercial relations of the american states South and North shall be so developed and so regulated that each shall acquire the highest possible advantage from the enlightened and enlarged Intercourse of All. Before the conference shall formally enter upon the discussion of the subjects to be submitted to it i am instructed by the president to invite a the delegates to be the guests of the government a proposed visit to various sections of the country with the double View of showing to our friends from abroad the condition of the United states Aud of giving to our own people. In their own Homes the priv lege and pleasure of extending the warm Wel �0me of to a at the conclusion of his speech Secretary Blaine withdrew and resolutions were adopted naming James g.

Blaine then came in and escorted the members to the 55 Hite House. The president gave a special reception to the delegates at 1 30 of clock one of the features of which was an informal lunch served in the state dining room at 2 o clock. The first of a series of elegant banquets which Are to be Given in Many of the Prin Copal cities in Honor of the nation s guests was Given at the Normandie hotel this evening by Secretary of state Blaine there were no speeches save a few remarks from or. Blaine at the conclusion of the banquet. J vast american Enterprise Tram erred the the control of British capitalist in Exchange for Over 850.000,000 of Theli cold a English Syndicate purchasing big breweries elevators and 3une. Chicago oct l a two representatives of English syndicates left town saturday evening after closing deals for the Purchase of some of the Best known and most remunerative business enterprises id the United states. The sums paid of them before their departure swell the total expenditures of the English Syndicate for american properties to �10, >09,000, or 50,-090,000. The properties turned Over to to British corporations in consideration of this sum it was admitted by a member of the purchasing committee and by attorney Levy Mayer Are the following the Bemi a Mcavoy brewery of Chicago the Wacker amp Birk breweries of cd Cago the Albany brewery of Albany n. Y. The Jones brewery of Detroit the Hauck brewery of Newark . The Tretz brewery of Jersey c to the United states breweries of new York City a portion of the Stock of Tho Schoenhofen brewery of Chicago the Star elevators of Minneapolis Tho g. W. V an Dusen system of elevators of Rochester Minn. The car 11 Bros elevator system of Minnesota and Dakota the Baltimore breweries of balt More my. Braastad a Hancock Iron mines of Hancock much. Tho Rochester breweries of Rochester n. Y. These sales have been completed and the titles rest with the English syndicates but they Are not the Only deals to be made. In a few Days the sales of the following properties w ill probably be closed and the Money paid Over the arrangements having already been practically concluded the f. Dew is brewery of Chicago and the Syracuse breweries of Syracuse n. Y. In a less advanced stage Are negotiations for the Purchase of two extensive elevator hic ago. These Are of necessary to a perfect system w Ith those Al Saady purchased in Minnesota and Dakota that the deals seem As sure of being consummated As though the Purchase Price Aad been agreed on and paid Over. The purchasers of these great blocks of property Are two London corporations the City contract company w Ith a capital it is said of �10, , and the trustees and executors company with a capital of about �7,509,000. Both concerns Are among the most solid of English corporations and number among their directors some of the Best known business men and financiers of great Britain sir Henry Isaacs who w As elected lord mayor of London and took his seat september 7, being president of the trustees and executors company. The corporations Are composed of a number of Banks in 1 the trustees of Large estates who have Large funds at their disposal and Are desirous of making conservative and reliable investments which will be More remunerative than the British Consols which Only 2% per cent. In the american purchases each company pursues the same method but acts independently of the other. Since their organization each company has had an agent in Tho United states whose duty it was to look out for solid business enterprises paying Large dividends but conducted on principles which would present the minimum Prospect of failure. Only Sueh enterprises w Ere considered and it w As the agents duty to obtain a general and accurate report of the character and Quantity of but guess. Re his was submitted to the Home company and if the business Enterprise w As considered a desirable one the agent Vagt requested to secure an option on it if possible. These options Are Peculiar institutions. They Are contracts on the part of the owner to sell for a certain sum and include a Complete schedule of the business to be a old with its history Progress and the profits for the last ten years. If the net profits Are not at least 1�?~i1 per cent a year for the preceding five years the agent declares All negotiations off. If they Are per cent the seller is permitted to Complete his schedule which is nothing less than an abstract of his books. On doing this he is required to Deposit in a Bank a sum of Money generally from �1,099 to �5,090, to defray the expenses of an investigation. This arrangement concluded Tho schedule is forwarded to London for inspection and if found satisfactory expert accountant 7 Are dispatched to the United states to make a full and Complete examination of the books. If these Are found As represented the accountants so report Over their own summary of the Book accounts. Either before or after this expert examination a committee is in each Caso suit to look at the proposed Deal from d business Brand Point to calculate on the did vantages of Competition or other probable diminution of profits. It the accountants and committee 3 reports Are both satisfactory Tho matter is put into the hands of the purchasing committee which closes the Deal pays the Purchase Price and refunds the guarantee Money. If it is found that the would be seller s schedule d misleading or false the negotiations Are immediately cancelled and the expense of examination deducted from the guarantee fund. Pin spite of All the denials of the purchasers it is Tho Genera supposition that the deals have been made with an idea to forming a Gigantic Trust of a Large share of the breweries in the country. Ine ele atom scheme and flour Mill project seems to have a similar tendency. A Chain of elevators from the Minnesota and Dakota wheat District to Chicago would have an enormous influence on the Grain business Aud would give the British syndicates immense advantages in the Export Trade which they could utilize the better for their facilities in using Large quantities of the surplus w heat in to Weir own flour Mills at Minneapolis the purchasing committee will proceed to the Northwest and then to Kansas City and Omaha where it is understood it has the a Purchase of other enterprises under considerate on. Many railroads. Com in i timer Taylor make i annual report the undue construction of naw line and Branch a responsible for Tho fierce Competition Between the companies ills remarks on the us elem a �a4 ruinous rate War plan for the Fay ment of the debt of subsidised Road. Washington oct 1.�?horace h. Taylor the commissioner of railroads has filed with the Secretary of the Interior the annual report of the operations of this Bureau for the fiscal year ending june 30, 1�-the commissioner discusses the Railroad situation in the 5vest and Northwest he save a several of the Railroad companies which have Rece Ved Grants of Public lands to Aid in the construction of roads decline to report to this office for the reason that such Grants were made by the respect be state in which the roads Are located and not by the United states. The Point made is that a Grant to a slate for a Railroad is not a Grant to the Railroad company. The position taken by these companies would seem to be technical and evasive. The lands were owned by the United states and granted by acts of Congress to the states for the sole purpose of aiding in the construction of railroads. The companies receive the full benefits of the Grants. The certificates issued by the general land off for the land granted named the railroads to whose use it is to he applied and in som cases do not even name the the commissioner discusses the Railroad situation in the 5\est, and says a repeated and ruinous rate wars destructive alike to the interests of the railroads and the shipping Publ a have prevailed to an alarming extent through Trout the West in recent years. The u a paralleled development of the vast resources of the Western states and territories has attracted capital there and railroads have opened inviting Fields to investors. As a result Railroad has been carried on far in Advance of the needs of the country. These rate wars Are in Many it not in most cases devoid of Pallia to on or excuse inaugurated without reasonable cause and omd a Tiv by prosecuted with an utter disregard of the disastrous effects upon the a Nti rests of the companies engaged and the business Publ c. They destroy or imperil the value of Railroad securities impose unjust burdens Uron the Commerce of competing sections prevent Stab hey in business and Render the profits of the producer and the trader alike the c commissioner says that he does not believe that recent losses in railway circles Are due to restrictive Law s. The recognized Laws of Trade have become imperative and it is necessary to invoke legislation to curb the unwarranted presumption of transportation companies. The report continues a the exceedingly unfortunate situation which has of late Preva led in the West and Northwest presents a vivid illustration and gives an expensive and apparently unheeded lesson regarding Tho effects of unregulated Conn edition. Unless conditions Are changed through the voluntary actions of the Railroad companies or by legislative interference commercial relations will be seriously disturbed and lasting injuries inflicted upon the railroads and to on every department of Trade. 1 believe that in Many sections of the West conspicuously in the states of Iowa and Kansas the mileage of railroads is greatly in excess of the leg Tim ate needs of the. Carrying Trade. If this by True then Many of Tho investments in Rad Road properties there must. Fa11 to yield remunerative dividend or the schedules of rates be fixed so Birb As to prove ruinous by burdensome to traffic. This condition of things presents a problem difficult of so ution. It is Safe to say that the remedy does not he in the levying of extortionate charges or wag no of reckless rate wars. The Security of the railway system lies in administering it with careful respect to Justice and the Public w Clare. Relief can Only come through increased settlement stimulating business and developing natural the commissioner gives in detail the condition of the subsidized roads with which the government has Petunia re relations and says that in his opinion the most feasible plan to secure to the government the payment of the amount due from the bonded roads is to Grant a reasonable Extension of time with a reduced rate of interest and require the payment of a certain p r cent of the Gross earnings of the roads to be applied to the liquidation of their indebtedness to the government the commissioner prefers his plan to those of fixed amounts and per cent of net receipts because it is elastic and will yield to the necessities of the roads in unfavourable years and because it will meet and overcome the evil of the diversion of traffic from subsidized to non subsidized lines. Continuing he says a fat is beyond controversy that the subsidized rods can not discharge their obligations to the government at maturity. La a Ting Laws Are wholly inadequate to secure the debts due and shortly to become due. It is imperative that Congress provide some measure of Relief. It is my of Nion that it would be Wise to Page san act giving a reasonable Extension of time re in Cong the rate of interest to a or 4 per cent. Requiring that the earnings from All government transportation by the aut Sidi Zed companies on All lines operated by them whether aided or non aided should be applied to the payment of any interest or Pron Ciubal due or to become due within the fiscal year in which the services might be rendered Prohic Ting the payment of any dividends by either of the subsidized companies unless such company shall have paid All uni erect on its bonded debt having a Lien prior to the govern sent and All May ured indebtedness and interest than due and of such a percentage of the Gros s earnings of the subsidized tines As by careful estimates would realize sums sufficient to accruing interest and raise a sinking fund that would meet the principal of the debts at their maturity. The said companies should also be permitted to refund their first mortgage Bonds under such provisions a would prevent any increase in the debt which is allowed priority Over the debt to the United states.�?�, mors Point meeting was Terian Church discharged a emptied the .
