What Reciprocity Will Accomplish
For Consumers of United States
Debate on the Bill In More Than 60 Deadly
the Senate Lasted Amendments Were
29 Days Voted Down
Canadian reciprocity agree-
TUB was passed In the sen
ate nftor twenty-nine days of
debute. Bomo of tbcso sea *
slons were wasted with other matters ,
but during that period the agreement
remained the uuflnlBhed business and
hiiJ profcrcnco over all other matters.
Moro than sixty nnicudments wcro
offered to the reciprocity agreement.
All were rejected by votes approxi
mating five to one. The one caus
ing the most apprehension was pro
posed by Senator Uoot of Now York.
It provided that paper and pulp should
not bo admitted from Canada until
the Dominion permitted shipments of
American materials and paper into all
Almost every conceivable kind of
tariff rcvison amendment was sug
gested and rejected.
The passage of the agreement was
effected by a combination of Demo
crats and regular Republicans. The
progressives , with two exceptions ,
voted against It. Three Democrats ,
Bailey , Simmons and Thornton , stead
fastly opposed It.
An understanding existed In advance
between the president and leaders of
the regular Republicans and Demo
crats that the reciprocity agreement
should be passed without change.
This proved a continual source of irri
tation to Its opponents.
Effect of the Agreement.
The Canadian reciprocity agreement
Is expected to materially reduce the
cost of living , although this may not bo
appreciable at the outset. Its purpose
Is to bring the necessaries of life In
greater quantities. The belief Is that
It will prevent higher prices and check
the continual advance In foodstuffs.
The agreement affects 01 per cent of
the goods Imported from Canada Into
the United States.
The free list contains wheat and oth
er grains , fresh fruits and vegetables ,
all kinds of fish , poultry and eggs , cat
tle , sheep and other live stock.
A mutual reduction of rates Is pro
vided for fresh and canned meats , ba
con and hams. caum > d vegetables , Hour
and cereal preparations.
Concessions are made on agricultural
Implements and coal and Iron oro.
Print paper and wood pulp tire inndi *
free so far as the provincial restric
tions of Canada will permit.
Cottonseed oil la made free by Can
ada and rouph lumber by the L'nltL'il

Zombro Dies From Cold.
Zombro , George Becker's 2:11 : trot-
Ing stallion , died at Sedalla , Mo. , Sat
urday morning as the result of a cold.
This information was received in n
telegram from Mr. Becker to J. M.
Askey of this city. Zombro was sired
by the great McKinney , champion
speed sire of the world. It was said
that Zombro was worth $23,000.
Crops Fairly Good.
West Point , Neb. , July 20. Special
to The News : Corn throughout this
section Is doing well. With no un
toward circumstances occurring the
yield will be at least normal. Late
planted corn will produce much better
than the early variety , the drouth and
hot winds hai Ing occurred at a stage
of its development which precluded
serious injury. What injury has been
done to the corn crop Is much more
apparent in early planted fields. Po
tatoes are practically a failure. In
the very small area of low lying lands
where the seed was planted very deep
the crop Is n bare one-half the av
erage , but throughout the county the
yield will net be sufficient to supply
the home tables.
Whear and oats are threshing out
fairly well , much better than was ex
pected. Wheat Is running from fif
teen to twenty bushels and oats from
thirty to forty , all of most excellent
quality. The crop of apples will be
immense. Early apples are already
glutting the market. Root crops , out
side of potatoes , are doing well and
gardens generally thriving. Taken al
together the abnormally dry weather f
of spring and early summer has not
done the harm which was anticipated.

West Point. July 2D. Sppeclal to

Situation In Canada.
The Canadian government Intends to
press reciprocity to n definite conclu
sion and passage , if such is possible.
But equally determined is the opposi
tion that it shall not pass. The result
will be o deadlock , and then dissolu
tion and the immediate calling of the
general election , a development which
seonilngly both sides welcome.
Opinions differ as to whoii the crisis
will happen. Some think it will not bo
delayed longer than three weeks ;
others believe It may bo two mouths
away. It will mainly depend upon de-1
velopmcnts fiom dny to day , all of
which cannot now be foreseen , but
whatever tninspires In the Intervening
period of time mid whatever tacth-s
and byplay may be resorted to by the
parties , thuu > does not appear to be the
remotest doubt that It will all even

Witness Says Morgan Did Not Bring
About Tennessee Co. Failure.
New York , July 31. That the brok
erage firm of Moore & Schley , that
was saved from ruin in 1907 through
the purchase of the Tennessee Coal
and Iron company by the United
States Steel corporation , owed money
to J. Pierpont Morgan & Co. , which
was secured by Tennessee Coal and
Iron stock as collateral , was levealed
to the steel trust investigating com
mittee by Lewis Cass Ledyard.
Representative Littleton asked Mr.
Ledyard about the nature of Moore &
Schley's loans. Ho said :
"The firm of J. Pierpont Morgan &
Co. had loaned the firm a considerable
"Was It secured by Tennessee Coal
and Iron stock ? " asked Mr. Littleton.
"Yes , it was , but the Morgan firm
had never bothered Moore & Schley
and did not call the loan. "
"There never was a more infamous
outrage than the suggestion that has
been made that either Mr. Morgan or
the United States Steel corporation
brought about , engineered , or inspired
an attack on the Tennessee Coal and
Iron company. Such a thing is abso
lutely false , " said Mr. Ledyard.
Mr. Ledyard made a defense of the
absorption of the Tennessee company
and said he never saw anything ille
gal in it. He said :
"Since the recent decisions of our
learned chief justice , I am more than
ever convinced that it was not illegal. "
