Professor Tavlor talked yestcrclny
at convocatirn on the subject of re
ciprocity as treated in the president's
message. Ho said it was a difficult
matter to handle and in order tint it
might bo understood easily, he would
present a historical view of the sub
ject. lie first consldord the early com
mercial relations of nations. In
former timc3 eacli nation had set up
arbitrarily without treaty, tariff
laws respecting the products or other
lands. This proved unsatisfactory as
-commerce increased and about the
middle of tho past enntury an era of
free trade was ushered in and the
practice rose of making commercial
treaties. These treaties contained a
clause to tho effect that if cither one
of the nations in the treaty should get
an advantage from a third nation,
the advantago should accrue also to
the second party to the treaty. Eu
rope became so covered with a net
work of these treaties that the ad
vantages accrued to tho whole and
consequently there was a lowering of
duties from 1870-'75.
In speaklng.of tho United Slates,
Professor Taylor said that when she
made a high tariff she could not ex
pect certain advantages which she
had under former treaties. But it was
seen that high duties could be used
in particular cases to good advant
age, and they were Imposed for the
nurposc of gaining commercial con
cessions from the nations. The max
mliim and minmlum tariff imposed a
maximum and minimum duty on
certain articles and one or the other
could bo used as the state of affairs
Tho McKinley tariff of 1890 followed
tills maximum and minimum tariff
and a high duty was put on certain
goods. It then became tho uollcy of
tho"governmont to removo the duty
on Biigar. The attitude of the
United States was like this: "If
you othor countrlis don' trernove your
duties on American flour wo will put
a high tariff on sugar and wool".
This proved effestivo with most of
tho South American and some of The
Tho Wilson law repealed all these
reciprocity arangements made by the
McKinley law and allowed wool to
come ir free without gaining any
- -Tim Dinglny law of '07 non tains, a
give some arguments in favor or re
ciprocity, but the shortness of time
did not permit it.
in the course of 'ins talk ho took
occasion to comment on President
Itoosovclt's Chinese policy In connec
tion with what Dr. Ross said Monday.
About twenty years ago Professor
Tavlor belonged to a club or which
Roosevelt was a member and or one
occasion took a stand in favor of
Chincso immigration. Mr. Roosevelt
soon convinced him tint it was the
proper policy to exclude tho Chinese.
Professor Taylor mentioned this to
show that the president's idea of tho
Chinese has been the sumo for years
and lias not been influenced bv any
lato poitlcal developments.

Professor Taylor Spoaka at Convo
cation on its History and
Theory as Treated in
Word has come from Minnesota to
the effect that they would like to
schedule a game of basket ball with
Nohraksa for sonio date after the
holidays. They offer ns an inducouict
one half of the gate receipts, and
enough more, if necessary, to pay tho
expenses or tho team. This is con
sidered a very good proposition, Inas
much as at the Minnesota-Wisconsin
game last year they realized $180.
The team will, without noubt.
make a northern trip, although tho
schedule or games has not been com
pleted. Tho Sl"ux City Y. M. C. A.
