U8.—The dinner given by tie chamber of commerce of London :o Congressman W. L. Wilson of West Virginia took place at the Hotel Metro- pole Thursday evening. Abqut 70 guests were present, including J. Sterling Morton, secretary of the agriculture; and ills two sons, Paul and Joyce Morton, Congressman Strauss of New York, Sir Courtney E. Boyle, permanent secretary of the board of trade, and a number of leading men in trade and commerce, Ambassador Bayard and James R. Roosevelt, secretary of the United States embassy, sent regrets. After the toasts to the queen had been drunk, the chairman proposed a toast to the president of the United States. He referred in eulogistic terms to America's Former representatives in London, Lowell, Lincoln and Phelps, and to the present representative, Mr. Bayard, the mention of whose names were greeted with loud cheers. He extended a hearty welcome to the guests [and to Secretary Morton as representing the American government. The toast was drank standing amid, lond *nd prolonged cheers. Proposing a toast to the guesto, Sir Albert Rollitt said Mr. Wilson's name bad become honored and familiar in England. In honoring the guests, he said, they were honoring London and its chamber of commerce asked them to go back with a menage of peace and good will. Nothing, he went on, could be worse than a war between the two great allies. That waa why arbitration in the Alabama and Bering sea cases was accepts ble to Great Britain. He was not sure that the worst wars of the future would not be tariff wars. If, as he hoped, the period of tariffs waa beginning to end both countries ought to honor Mr. Wil son. Benefits had already been experienced in England. Furnaces had been reopened in Wales and Yorkshire am' an impetus had been given to the textile industries. Mr. Wilson, rising to respond, was greeted with cheers which lasted for seven minutes. The various points in his speech were also warmly cheered. After 'acknowledging the honor con ferred upon him and reciting the events of the long struggle to overthrow protec tion, Mr. Wilson said: "All the people saw our system was generating a brood of monopolists so powerful as to defy the law and whicl used part of the wealth they drew from •baring in tho p^wer of taxation to in crease their privileges, debauch elections and corrupt legislation. Tratlo of Other Nation* Promoted. "I am quite sure our protective policy has .already served to promote the tradi of other nations and if continued i would still further promote such trade and preeminently your own. So, stand ing before you, a representative of those who are striving for a freer couitnercia policy for the United States, I fear I can not ask yon to rejoice in its- adoption ex cept as you prefer right principles to selfish advantage*. Protection has seen onr voluntary withdrawal from the seaa and from the natural markets. Onr pro tectionists have been building defenses to keep you and other nations from competing in our home market*. The tariff reformers are breaking down these defenses. Let us compote in all the mar kets of the world, Not only is our production of cotton and food products growing nioro rapidly than pur consuiup tion, but wo have today a manufacturing plant which urged to the full capaci ty would in six months fully meet oar demand for a year. Complexity of Free dovertHuent. "The nation* of tho world uro growing more and more neighborly and the manufacturing supremacy of tho world must eventually pass to that nation which, having the largest. supply, shal apply it to the highest intelligence and enterprise. "We are constantly confirmed in tho belief," continued Mr. Wilson, "that oar supply of material* Is more exhaustless and more cheaply handled than that of any other people and if we continue to be underling*, it is our own fault. We are being rapidly sobered, though an Appalled by the troth forced upon us that of til human governments, a freo government is the most complex and difficult and, judging from the world's experience, the most uncertain and short- lived. Oar institutions are strong be cause they are deeply rooted in tho past. It is for you and for us to show that while other nations have been great iu war, commerce, science, etc., wo oau be great in all aud great iu tho greatuess ol permanent freedom." Morton Corroborate* WU»«m Secretary Morton was the uext speaker. He said Mr. Wilson had stated what was absolutely correct and tUe people of America had finally said adieu to the protective system. Free trade was tuied M a bogy with Americans, bnt at last the faruwra recognized that free trade did not compel trade anywhere, but simply permitted an American olticeu to trade wherever it was moat advantageous, Mr, Morton said; "Wu, as Americans, feel at home hero." AuU the routark was loudly cheered. Sir Courtney Boyle, toaatiug Sir Albert rtollltt, uuid they owtxl u debt of gratitude to Mr. Wilsou uud liia colleagues iu congress uud tUoy hoped their action was not fluid, lie duclured their oluiiu was just, that they had changed the policy of America 1'roiu u harmful one to one buiwilttiuy not ouly thsin- aelvna but thu conimwey of the world. Hoplyjug to thu Count to the uharnbar. Uougrasuxtu Straus* of tfew York deplored the fact tho tariff wad ever made a party, question in the! [Jnited States and he urged the forma;ion aa promptly ns possible of an inter- lational agreement to settle the silver question. Mr. Strauss also asserted the compliment paid to Mr. Wilson by the dinner tendered by the London chamber of commerce will be contorted by tho protectionists and their press into a "mark of the English sense of obligation for Mr. Wilson's efforts in England's behalf." COWARDICE OF CHINESE OFFICERS. Captain Fong of the Warship Tgl luen Condemned to Do Beheaded. LONDON, Sept. 28.—A dispatch from Shanghai says: The Chinese rmval officers now at Port Arthur and Tien-Tsin are squabbling among themselves as to the responsibility of the terrible Chinese losses in the naval battle off Yalu, A court of inquiry la sitting and has already found Captain Fong of the warship Tsi Yuen guilty of cowardice in the Face of the enemy. He was condemned to be beheaded and it is believed that other officers will lose their heads. -A telegram from the Kunk Taotal at Port Afthnr received by the commandant at Wei Hal Wei positively accuses the commander of the Chen Yuen of taking flight with his vessel before the battle at the first sight of the enemy's smoke. Admiral Ting, who remains at Port Arthur, has telegraphed to Wei Hal Wei, making grave charges against some of his officers. The admiral declares that the Ping Yuen, tho Kwang Ting and the Chin Chung, together with four torpedo boats, were up • the Yalu river when the battle commenced. Then they remained until all the fighting waa over. They then sneaked out and made for Port Arthur. Two of these torpedoes boats are said to be still missing. SUMMONED TO THE VATICAN. Hgr. HoUt Will Beeelve Initruotloni From the Pope on French AflUtr*. ROME, Sept. 38.—The pope has summoned Mgr. Hoist, the spiritual adviser of the late count of Paris, to the Vatican for the purpose of imparting to him in< structions in regard to the Royalists. In clerical circles this action is believed to be a fatal blow to the pretensions of the Monarchists. . In view of the fact that the Auetro-Hungarian legations have raised the question of the exclusive right, anciently belonging to the sovereigns of Spain, France and Austria, to object to the election of any cardinal as pope, a special clause will be added by the pope to the secret instructions to be given at the coming conclave in order to frustrate any attempt to revive the right. Chlneee Commander* Bell Ammunition. LONDON, Sept. 88.—The Pall Mall Gazette publishes a letter from Shanghai, dated Aug. 11, saying the Chinese navy cannot fight because the ships have only about 13 rounds of ammunition per Bhip, the supply of ammunition having been, sold, according to the correspondent by the captains of the warships. The corrtispondent adds that one of these commanders actually sold one of his ship's Armstrong guns and went to sea one gun short. __^_____ American* Returning Home.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 28.—The Brazilian overnment has given notice that the re- iprocity treaty between the United tates and Brazil will be terminated by Srnzil on January 1. Senor Mondenca said: "Brazil's ac- ion is a necessary sequence t<5 the en- ctment of the new tariff law by the Jnited States, and there is no signifl- ance in the action of my country be- ond it doing its part toward the termin- tion of a treaty which the tariff law tself abrogates. "The original agreement gave either onntry the privilege of renouncing tho treaty on July 1 or Jan. 1 of any given ear by giving three month's notice. 'he tariff law served to abrogate the reaty without any notice to Brazil, bnt ur government saw fit to give the full otice and the reciprocity rates to Ameran goods will remain until January in Brazil." Mr. Mondenca was asked as to tho ffect of the change on trade. Braill'i Snf-ar Trade Tripled. •'The reciprocity treaty," he said, 'was chiefly beneficial to Brazil in sugar, •rior to it onr sugar had only the domestic market, bnt the reciprocity treaty gave ns the United States market, and is a result our sugar trade to this conn- ry has tripled in the last three yean. Onr coffee trade, which was another main item, will not be affected by the ihange. On th« part of the United States the treaty gave advantages to this country on manufactured iron goods, ailroad supplies, lard and agricultural iroducts. The rates will not be ma- erially raised against this country, and am expecting this country to make arge increases in sending manufactured woolens to Brazil as a result of the new wool manufacturing induced by free raw wool in the new tariff law. Out- ide of these, few changes will occur by he termination of reciprocity." Besides the reciprocity treaty with Brazil, which will lapse entirely January L next, the United States has entered nto nine other arrangements with other nations under the authority conferred by ho McKinley act. The arrangements are with Spain and Cuba, Porto Rico, he Dominican Republics with Guatemala, with Germany, Nicaragua, Honduras, Austro-Hungary, San Salvador and Great Britain, the last named for :he British colonies of Trinidad, Barbadoes, the Leeward islands, Nevos, Dominica, the Windward Islands, British Guiana and Jamaica.
