Mr. Mmlorn's meeting with Presi dent Do La Harm at the national pal- unco was Impressive.- The former reb el chief had not met the president , nnd ns Do La Barra entered a corridor leading from his office , escorted by his military staff , ho stopped forward and grasped the hand of the trlmn- .pliant chief of the revolution. Both men , short of stature were overshad owed by the guardsmen of the Madero staff as well ns those of the chief exe cutive. The two inon chatted for n , ew minutes. "A good deal has been done , " Mr. De la Barra said , "but there is much abend of us. From the way In which you have been received in the capital , I am confident all will bo accomplish ed that should ho and with the ap proval of n popular clement. " Mr. Madoro explained his confidence In President De la Bnrra , asserting he was glad Mexico had at the head of Its government so eminent and so hon orable n man. The parting of the two men was cordial. They embraced In character istic Mexican fashion and returned down the long corridor In opposite di rections. As Madero passed down the stairway , the federal officer on guard presented arms. Hulf way down the staircase lending to the court of the national palnce , a crowd of small girls tossed flowers nt th'o descending pur ties and by the time Madero entered his carriage ) ho was almost covered with roses and confetti. Escorted to the gateway by federal guards , Madero again ontpred the cheering jam of people and made his procession through the streets. Last night noisy celebrants filled the streets nnd paraded. Madero was closely guarded throughout the day. When ho arrived at the station , short ly after noon , it was with difficulty that his bodyguard fought for the way through the almost iinpassablo barrl' cade of humanity. Ono of Mndoro's vigilant guards ob served a man with his pistol drawn and not hesitating whether it was for salute or malevolence , he wrested the weapon from the man's hand and fore ed him back into the crowd. The po lice incidentally , just before the train arrived , arrested a suspicious charac tor. Several persons wore injured in the press of the crowds , but there were no fatalities. During the march in the streets , a platform over an excavation gave way and , about twenty persons fell Into th ditch. Mndero stopped his carriage nnd ordered his bodyguard to assls them. They were all rescued wlthou injury nnd the procession continued. Following Madero , In several car riages , were members of his fnmll and chiefs from surrounding states Among them , a company from Oaxnca which was commanded by a fifteen year-old girl , Espernnza Chavarrl , dressed in khaki suit , high top boots and wearing a sombrero trimmed In flowers. Madero will , on'Friday , review the army of the south under Amhrosl Figueroa at. , Cuernarnca nnd shortly after his return will go to Tehuacan for n two months' rest. "My stay in the city of Mexico , " he said , "will depend upon the time it takes the president nnd myself to ar range details for the reorganization of the government. I shall net only in an advisory capacity. " Mexico City , Juno 7. Amid the wildest enthusiasm , Francisco I. Ma dero , jr. , today entered the seat' of the government which ho overturned. Bowing nnd smiling right nnd left Mndero wns driven from the station to the national palace nnd then to the Tiome of his father at Berlin and Liv erpool streets. Throngs that lined the way fell In behind as the carriage passed until n great , noisy but friendly procession hnd formed. Scores of cl vilian societies , political organizations women in carriages , nnd soldiers ic Ink parade uniform moved on to the quickstep kIt stop music of the military bands.

WILSON ON RECIPROCITY "CANADA IS ONE OF OUR BEST CUSTOMERS. " FAVORS CANADIAN AGREEMENT Secretary of Agriculture Wilson , Ad dressing the Detroit Board of Com merce , Makes a Strong Argument In Favor of Canadian Reciprocity. Detroit , Mich. , Juno 8. Secretary of Agriculture Wilson , addressing the board of commerce hero on the Ca- niullnn agreement , today said recipro city Is a movement for moro markets for the products of diversified Indus try from field nnd factory , nn enlarge ment of the policy 6f half n century Unit has made our homo market , and brought the fanners' customers nearer the field. "Canada Is our second best custom er now , " said he. "Wo hnvo sold to her in the lust flvo years about five hundrdd million dollars forth of goods than wo bought from her , mostly fac tory goods. Wo feed the factory people ple from our fields. There Is no pros perity for the farm If other Industries languish. The American watchword should still bo moro factories and moro divorsiflcd industries , ns it has been for half a century. The farm will feed the factory. " Secretary Wilson said that fifty years ago the American farmer had no homo markets , to sell his surplus product. lie arranged for a homo mar ket by protecting all diversified indus tries. This brought him to the home market , the best in the world. But now population has outgrown produc tion from the farm in some cases and threatens to outgrow it in others. "The Canadians see the ndvnntages that are coming to the United States , " continued. Mr. Wilson , "nnd look nt them Just as our people look at the advantages that will come to the Ca nadlans. Wise men look at both sides. "In the development of regions with climate nnd soils so comprehensive nnd varied as are found on both sides of the line that divides us from Canad ian , the Interests ofall classes of people ple must be taken Into consideration ; the producer because ho creates wealth , the consumer because he makes a market for It , and' the gar- Her because he tnkos it from the field to the mnrket. In the mnklng of this treaty the chief executive nnd those nssocinted with him have considered the Interests of all classes of the com munity. " Mr. Wilson told how the homestead Inw gave the rich glaciated soils of the Mississippi valle > v to the farmer with the result thnt the eastern farms were neglected when the young people ple left them and went went to help build up the great states in the Mis sissippi valley. "TliQi statesmen of that day regard ed It wise to extend civilization over the country , " snld he. "No mnn of intelligence can be found to condemn the statesmen of fifty or sixty years ago who opened up these lauds to settlement. And yet it was injurious to some eastern farmers who were not able to accommodate themselves to the changed conditions , which never theless , put it in their power to fur nish many things for the growing fac tory towns of the eastern states that enabled them to maintain their farms in excellent fertility. The American farmer brought about the building of the American fnctory because he want ed a homo market. Ho has voted steadily for half a century to give protection to the extent of the differ ence In cost of production between this country and nny country that de sires to sell In our markets. Was that right or wrong ? The question pending with regard to reciprocity thus seems to ho up to the farmer. Is he willing to have the government enter Into a trade agree ment by which the development of the United States nnd the develop ment of the Canadian people shall he furthered , or Is it desirable to limit our Intercourse with the Canadians to the actualities of the present day ? "It should bo remembered that Can ada Is one of our best customers. More than one-half of everything we sell goes to English speaking people If we can extend thnt trade so that the business of both countries will In crease , It Is n consummation devoutly to bo wished by both.

The move ments of the steamer Eureka have given much concern to the state and navy departments for a month. The Nicaragua ! ! minister here learned through private sources that the ves sel had cleared from San Francisco , about May 12 , for the hay of Fonseca on the west coast of Nicaragua , sup posedly with arms and ammunition. Senor Castrillo , the Nicaragua ! ! minis ter , suspected a revolutionary expedi tion directed against the government of President Diaz , though he stated that the expedition might be against another Central American country sup posedly rlpo for the revolt. The gun boat Yorktown was dispatched from Panama to San Juan Del Sur to search the Eureka. Four days ago she re ported to the navy department that no arms had been found on the Eureka , which is a steam schooner.
