Senator Clark an Optimist.
Salt Lake. I'tah, Dec. 6���ln an Interview last night, former Senator W. A.
Clark of Montana said: "The total reduction ln the output of copper Is so
large thai six months oughl to see the
surplus eliminated entirely. When that
Is done I expect to see copper go hack
to about 10 cenls per pound and that Is
enough. At thai figure consumption is
possible on a large scale and while it
will not permit all Ihe mines lo resume
on the old basis It will still furnish employment for a large proportion of the
men who have been thrown out of employment by the recent slump."

ON FOREiGNJOMHERlE
Representatives of American Boards of
Trade  Conferring With   Secretary   Straus.
Washington. D. C��� Dec. 5.���At the
iuvitatiuQ of Secretary Straus, of the
department of Commerce and .Labor,
representatives of the chambers of commerce and boards of trade of twenty or
the leading cities of the United States
assembled in conference here today to
discuss ways and means for promoting
the country's foreign commerce. The
meeting is the first of a series of similar conferences planned by Secretary
Straus. The chief purpose is to establish closer relations between the commercial bodies of the country and the
department of Commerce and Labor.
So many cities are interested in the
movement for the extension of American commerce abroad that it was
found impossible to accomodate delegates from all at one conference. Those
Invited to pariicipate in the present
conference included the commercial or-
lrtinizations of Chicago, Philadelphia.
Cinci nnati. New York, Atlanta, New
Orleans, Host on. Minneapolis, St. Paul.
Pittsburg. Galveston. Richmond. Seattle. Milwaukee, Portland tOre.,, and
Charleston (S. C.)
The idea of these conferences is to
crystallize the work of extending the
United States' foreign commerce in
manufactures, and they will be held
during the winter for the effect their
action Is expected to have on Congress.
Although the work of extending foreign commerce has been largely increased during the past few years, especially since the organization of the
department of Commerce and Labor,
and of the llureau of Manufactures, at
the same time the United States is far
behind other countries in its study of
commercial conditions, and its efforts
to push the sale of Its manufactured
products. Secretary Straus will tell
the conference of the results already
achieved by his department and will
ask the views of the commercial representatives on the further development
of practical plans for rendering the department of greater service to the commercial interests of the country.

here at noon today for Berlin. A number of Russian officers and functionaries

British Criticism.
London. Dec. 6.���ProteBsor Hewlns.
secretary af the Tariff reform league,
circulates In the press an analysis of
the new Franco-Canadian treaty. He
p.tints ont that Canada ln a number of
instances has gone below the Intermediate tariff and sometimes below tbe
British rates, altogether materially reducing the preference. He criticized the
warehousing and transhipment clauses
and emphasizes how an extension ot
trcntles to other countries must subject
Hritish trade In Canada to far more
strenuous competition ln the absence of
a British  reciprocal  agreement.
Merger in Japan.

the rates would be laid before the commission and a hearing asked for. It
was the concensus of opinion, although
few have had time for detailed analysis
of the new schedules, that they left
Kootenay's special grievances unaffected.
