WASHINGTON, Feb. .-The accumulated
demands for hearings on the provisions of
the Canadian reciprocity agreement broke
upon the ways and means committee of the
house Thursday when that committee of
lis flrat hearing on the measure. Fisher
men and fish packers from Gloucester had
been accorded an opportunity to present
their reasons for objecting to the reciprocal
agreement upon fish and before the meet
ing was concluded requests had been made
for hearings on wood pulp, paper, lumber,
barley and other schedules.
Tn open hearings on all of these matters
In the opinion of the committee mem
bers will endanger the passage of the
agreement by th present congress. After
a short executive session late today It
was made plain that hearinga will not be
permitted to delay or embarrass the meas
In answer to telegrams from paper men,
Chairman Payne said they had been In
vited to como at once If they Insisted
upon being heard. The barley Interests
of the northwest, he said, had not been
heard before the committee In the framing
of the Payne tariff law and they also will
be given opportunity to present their case.
The committee does not propose, however,
to open hearinga on subjects covered In
i hearings two yea re ago.
These facts were brought out in a de
bute In the committee room before the
I Gloucester fishermen completed their case.
Representative Champ Clark precipitated
It by asking Chairman Payne if tha reci
procity agreement was to be reported to
the house before tha flrat of next week,
Mr. Payne saying he did not know, but
indliated that the request of several per-
sons to be heard will be taken Into con
I sideratlon and the bill will probably re-
main In committee until about next Tuea-
i day.
! Chairman Payne also said the discussion
I among members of the committee would be
carried on later In ae utlve session. After
that session members of the committee said
that while some hearings would be given
the v would not be such aa to delay the re
porting of the agreement.

James Calls Trial of Head of British

Taf t Sends Greeting

Hoboes at Milwaukee
PAHI8, Feb. I.-TMward II. James, the
editor of the Liberator, whose article was
the basis of the suit against Edward i
Myllua, convicted in London yesterday for
libelling King George, today Usued a state
ment saying the trial of his British agent
was illegal and tha proceedings a "ahlte
washing." The statement proceeds:
"The trial was Illegal because Myllus was
not Indicted, but was tried under 'an In
formation ex-offlclo.' which ia used only
in charges f sedition. It waa a white
washing because tha crown had no right
to call witnesses to disprove charges when
the defendant had refused to offer evidence
piovlng tha charges. Mylius having re
fused to substantiate that big imy was prac
ticed, the case ended immediately.
"Myllua refused to proceed because the
king refused to testify. If the king had
gone on the stand and sworn that the
marriage did not take place I would gladly
apologise in the Liberator, which under
the circumstances can only attack the trial
as a violation of almost every principle of
English law, evidence and liberty."

president James Eads How, in disposing
of routine business, offered to read a letter
from President Taft.
"I have here, said Mr. How, "a letter
from Mr. Taft and ulso a circular saying
men are wanted for the I'nlted States army
and navy. What is the pleasure of the con
vention?" "Tear 'em up and throw 'em In tlie waste
basket, " shouted a voice.
"That's right." shouted the convention
with almost one voice. "Tear 'em up.
Throw 'em away. If Taft wants to talk
to us let him come here."
