President Roosevelt, in conversation with his congressional callers Friday, dwelt upon, with serious emphasis, the necessity for the enactment of the pending Philippine tariff legislation. He said that in the last few days cablegrams had been received from Governor Taft strongly urging that the Philippine tariff bill be enacted, and pointing out that failure on the part of the ingress to provide for a lower tariff on Philippine products would result certainly In hardships to the people of the islands, and probably to a recurrence of serious disturbances. Indeed, Governor Taft Is of the opinion that the recent outbreaks instigated by hands of ladrones in the island of Luzon are due largely to a feeling of discontent that is growing throughout the Philippines. The conditions in the Island are said to he bordering on distress and the president, in discussing the situation with members of congress, appealed strongly to them for the enactment of the legislation that, in the opinion of the would remedy the administration, present difficulty. Senator Lodge and other Republican senators are making an effort to secure the passage of the tariff bill, but they have little hope of success. EXTRA SESSION LIKELY.

Three of the Rioters Killed and Many Wounded as a Result of a Pitched Battle Between the Two Sides, At Stannlford City, in Raleigh coun. ty, W. Va., at dawn Wednesday morn. Ing, a battle took' place between the Joint posses of Deputy United States Marshal Cunningham and Sheriff Cook on one side and rioting miners on the other, as a result of which three miners were killed, two others mortally wounded and a number of others on both sides more or less seriously hurt. The trouble grew out of an attempt tc arrest thirty-fou- r miners for vlolalion of the blanket injunction issued by Federal Judge Keller last Saturday. Deputy United States Marshal Cunningham went to Atkinsville, a mining town in Raleigh county, to arrest men charged with violating the injunction. He was surrounded fry a large party of miners armed with Winchesters, who ordered him to leave the place, an order which he quickly obeyed. Sheriff Cook at the same time attempted to make some arrests under a process issued by the state court, and was treated in a like manner. The officers returned to Charleston, and were instructed to return, being provided with 100 well armed men. Wednesday morning about daybreak the officers and their combined posses surprised the rioters in their camp and called on them to surrender. The reply was a shoL This was answered by a shot, and immediately a furious battle was raging. When It ceased three of the rioters lay dead and many others were found to he wounded, two of them fatally. Seventy-thre- e arrests were made. The locality in which the tragedy occurred is one which the miners recently opened, and the small towns are filled with the most desperate characters that have ever come into the felt among members of the cabinet that the Cuban reciprocity and Panama canal treaties will be ratified by the senate at the present session, and each indays delay In acting upon them is extraoran of the probability creasing dinary session of the senate la the state. event of failure of either one or both MEXICANS ARE TERRIFIED. of the treaties.

The document had been previously signed by President Palma and was brought to Washington by Minister Squiers. It does not specify the price of the properties to be acquired by the United States, and this detail is left to be settled by the usual legal condemnatory proceedings after the navy department has decided exactly the amount of land it wishes at each place. With these two places properly fortified as naval bases, the Gulf of Mex. ico would not be possible of occupation by a hostile fleet, and the Carib. bean sea would be unsafe for an enemy. At Guantanamo there will be erected extensive coal docks, and perhaps a short line railroad to connect the port with the backbone railroad already finished by private enterprise. Bahia Honda will for some time probably be used simply as a place for the storage of coal. SITUATION IN CHINA IS SERIOUS. Arms Being Imported Into Celestial Kingdom by Foreign Nations. Representations have been made to the state department by the Russian ambassador, Count Cassini, regarding the increasing seriousness of the in China, in the hope that the United States will with the other powers to stop the Illegal importation of arms, which has reached an alarming stage of activity. Similar representations have been made through the Russian representatives to Belgium, Germany and Great Britain. The Chinese officials claim they are powerless to stop the practice and the Russian government, in the Interest of peace, has called the matter to the attention of the powers. Secretary Hay and the Russian ambassador have had several conferences on the matter, but it has not been decided just what course the United States, under the constitution, can take toward preventing the exportation of arms. It is probable that the only relief lies In special legislation by congress, which is deemed impossible at this session. The Belgians are the chief offenders in this illegal practice, though it is said many arms are entering China from the United States, Germany and Great Britain. sit-nati- WILD TIME AT FIRE. of Elephants Trumpetings Causes a Panic. Almost Fire partially destroyed the new brick car barn at the new winter quar. ters of the Barnum & Bailey circus at and Conn., Tuesday, Bridgeport, burned a number of cars belonging to the circus. While the fire was at its height a cornice fell, carrying to tho ground with it twelve firemen who were at work on the roof. The men were much bruised, but were not otherwise injured. Excitement was occasioned during the removal of fourteen elephants which were quartered in a building adjoining the car barns. It was necessary to remove the elephants through door facing the burning building and across the tracks between rows of burning and smoking cars. In order to accomplish this safely the four keepers took one animal out at a time until the entire herd was removed. The loud trumpeting of the elephants gave rise to a rumor that the animals had broken loose. This rumor rapidly spread around the city and occasioned much alarm.
