Beverly, Mass.. Oct. 1 "The ware of
extremely high prices for food throughout
the civilized world has reached Its height
In the United States and "Is subsiding.
The American people have cause to be
thankful that, because of our Industrial
prosperity. It has not been attended here
with the creat hardship which has pre
vailed In some foreign countries. wher6
high prices have combined with low
wages to reduce the working people to
a nnlnt bordering: on starvation."
This statement was made to-day by
President Taft, who bases his conclusion
on the results of an inquiry he caused to
be made by the Department of Agricul
ture, and which shows that as a result
of the bumper crops and the great pros
perity of the American farmer there has
been a material decrease m the cost of
food products, although in most Instances
the reduction has not yet reached the con
sumer, and.ln some, at least, will not do
so for some months.
The most notable Instance of this de
layed effect Is In the case of corn, which
Is ultimately marketed In the form of meat
products. The Increased crop will Inevi

Secretary Wilson reports that, as com

crops will be about 30 per cent greater
and that the supply this year wjll aver

Present Agreement Expires on
January 1 United States'
Powerless to Act.
Not only has there been no agreement
made Mth the government of Russia for
a year's extension of the treaty of 1832,
abrogated last year by President Taft.
but It Is extremely unlikely that there will
be any treaty to take the place of the old
one on January 1, 1913, when the present
treaty expires. Information to' this effect
developed here to-day In connection with
the report from Vienna that Russia ana
the United States had agreed to extend
the operation of the treaty of ISO for on
year more in order to gain more time for
The situation regarding the Russian
treaty Is admittedly about as bad as It
well could be. There has been no real
progress made toward the negotiation of
a new treaty since the day that Presi
dent Taft announced that he had i exer
cised bis right of giving notice of the
abrogation of the treaty of 1832. This
treaty expires on January 1. 1913.
Accordinr to the best-Informed author-
Vties here, -tne situation is practically
Impossible. It Is now the general belief
In administration circles that, the United
States will be unable to negotiate a sat
isfactory new treaty, securing the rights
demanded by the United States for
Jews in Russia, until the other powers
join with this government in making a
To obtain the co-operation of the other
powers in making-a united demand upon
Russia to this effect Is. even at the most
fcvorable estimate, a tremendous task.
Russia stands alone among all the great
nations in insisting upon treating alien
Jews as rigorously as she does Russian
Jews within her own territory. Yet. her
relations with other powers so complicate
the matter, that it will be extremely diffl
cult for the United States to bring them
all into line, with her in demanding-that
Russia discard usages which every other
nation has long since given up.
UntlK the nations unite "with the
United States in making this demand.
however, Russia's position with rela-
lton to the united states is almost im
pregnable. 'She can sit unmoved by the
representations of the United States,

British Ambassador Calls at
State Department on Return
from Lone Trip.
Ambasador Bryce, who has just re
turned to Washington alter an absence
of several months, called at the State
Department yesterday In connection
with the controversy between the United
States and Great Britain regarding
Panama Canal tolls.
His call at the department yesterday
practically Inaugurated a series ot diplo
matic discussions which will continue
between the two governments until the
matter Is settled. With the return of
Secretary Knox to his desk next Mon
day, following his Journey to Japan as
special Ambassador at the funeral
ceremonies of Emperor Mutsuhlto, the
matter will be brought to a conclusion
as soon as possible.
Officials here who are fully cognizant
of all that has passed between the
United States ard Great Britain on the
subject are confident that the Panama
Canal controversy is no longer a dan
gerous issue Between the two nations.
While no hint Is obtainable as to the
manner In which settlement Is to be
brought about, every confidence is ex
pressed that an amicable adjustment
wiu oe reacneo.
It is now understood that there will
not be any formal communication from
the British government other than what
has already been received. Discussions
between Ambassador Bryce and the
State Department will form the basis
or the negotiations to be carried on. it
is not believed here than there Is any
danger of Great Brltlan pressing the
matter to arbitration, despite the fact
that she has already hinted that such
will be her course In case of a con
tinued disagreement on the question of
the Panama Canal tolls question, j
It is believed the ultimate solution of
the problem I will be an Indirect one.
There are other Important matters pend
ing between the United States and Great
Britain, and It has been suggested that
all taken together will. afford a better
basis for negotiation than would be the
case In an endeavor to, settle the canal
question by Itself, r
Ambassador Bryce talked with
Chandler Anderson, counselor of the
State Department yesterday. " regard
ing the arbitration , treaty which the
8enate emasculated In ratifying it As
soon as opportunity-, offers, they will
confer together In an endeavor to save
something out of the wreck. The
treaties are by no means to be con
sidered a dead Issue.- it was stated here
yesterday, as both governments still
have the livllest Interest In them. President-Taft
