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 o 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 Its provinces. 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.

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. Charged With Intent to Kill. West Point. July 2D.

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 tuate In dissolution and a general oloc- tlou early in September next. her parents , Mr. and Mrs. C.
