carrying out the recipiocily agreement with
Canada. No agreement has been reached
as to the limit of debate, but the bill may
be passed today.
Hlilic- the vote lo displace the regular

take up reciprocity cannot be accepted hs
an exact Indication of the final vole on the
bill. It is regarded as being approximately
The votes against taking up the meas
ure came almost wholly from- tie republi
can's side. The democrats voted almost
solidly for Immediate consideration, fume
of the republicans who voted against dis
placing the renular order are not expected
to place themselves on record agAinst reci
procity at a final sjote.
Mr. McCall of Massachusetts, will handle
tho time for debate In favor of the bill,
end Mr. 1'alzdl of Pennsylvania, will eerie
in like capacity for th opposition.
At o'clock It was stated that no at
tempt would be made to get the measure
to a vote toda.
Dill lie fore Whole Committee.-
The bill Is first being considered by the
house as committee of the "whole.
Speaker Cannon calh-d . Ropfosentatl ve
Mann of Illinois to the chair to pres de
over the committee during the considera
tion of the measure. '
In the earlier proceedings Mr. Cannon,
by recognizing Mr. McCall and declaring
his motion to take up the reciprocity' bill
a privileged matter, had shown a disposi
tion to help tl.e cause along to a vote,
despite the sentiments against reciprocity
which he expressed in a letter to the Illi
nois legislature on fc-'aturday.
Representative Hill of Connecticut, one i
of the republican members of the commit
tee on ways and means, was recognlxed
for one hour In support of the reciprocity
agreement. When he began to apeak the
house was In much confusion and Mr. Hill
asked for close attention.
"Come over on thla side.'i suggested Rep
resentative Fitzgerald of New York, a
democrat. "We'll listen to you and this
is where you'll get your vutes."
Intense Interest. In Vote.
The voting on the motion to take up the
reciprocity measure was followed with the
keenest interest. On a yea and nay vote
there are always two calls through the al
At the end of the first ca.ll It was seen
that the reciprocity advocates were win
ning. The vote then was: ' Ayes, ITS; noes,
lk At the end of the. second call tile
vote was announced aa 1D5 to 121.
This was later changed lo 190 to 121 to
correct a clerical error. An analysis of
the vote to take up the , McCall bill showed
For Republicans, - 60; democrats, 136;
Against Republicans, 101; democrats, 20;
Th republican Insurgents 'attitude to
ward reciprocity was shown by the fact
that fourteen voted against consideration
and only six for It.
Mr. Hill's opening argument In favor of
the - agreement followed cjoeely the lines
laid 'down and tle facts set forth In the
majority report from the ways and means
committee. He was Interrupted from t me
to time, by question. Asked if he was in
favor of free trade with Canada, Mr. Hill
said he favored unrestricted trade with
every country where the cot of production
did not differ from that In the United
States. ' V
Mr. Hill declared that talk of injury to
various Interests In tha United States as a
result of reciprocity was "not based on
Mr. Hill said that no amendment could
be put Into the bill, except In the wood
pulp section, without disturbing his whole
agreement with Canada. He refused to dis
cuss the wood pulp clause,, leaving that to
Representatlev Mann of Illinois. Mr. Hill
pleaded earnestly for support of the agree
ment, saying It would bring the English
speaking people of North 'America into a
closer commercial union, as would be of
distinct advantage to both.
The opening speech against the reci
procity 'measure was made by Representa
tive Gains of West Virginia, a republican
member of the ways and means committee.
Mr. Cains declared the consideration of
the bill had proceeded with "Indecent
haste" and that no Idea had a yet been
given to the house as to the contents of
the McCall bill.
