FREE TRADE WITH CANADA.
The Benefits of the Scheme
It Would Be a Good Thing for
80 the Convention at St. Panl Has
Congressman Springer's Sapient Remarks
A Hot right lo the Anti-Trust
Convention at Chicago.
By the Associated Press.
St. Paul, Minn., June 6. —When the
delegates to the international reciprocity
convention got together today, the of
ficers selected last evening by the com
mittee on organization were elected.
Letters of regret were read from Gov
ernor Russell, of Massachusetts; Hon.
Wilfred Lanrior, of Quebeo, and other
prominent men. E. V. Smalley, chair
man of the committee on resolutions,
read a report and spoke briefly in its
support. The resolutions were sub
stantially as follows:
In favor of reciprocity in trade, espec
ially with Canada, which would, it was
held, be of great mutual advantage; im
provement of waterways from the great
lakes to tidewater, so as to admit of the
passage of ocean steamers and open com
petition between the railways of both
countries, and providing for a committee
of 10, five from the United States and
five from Canada, to lay the matters be
fore the respective governments, with a
view to securing the enactment of the
necessary laws to the ends songht.
After addresses favoring the resolu
tions, by Hon. Joseph Martin and Hon.
William M. Springer of Illinois, the con
vention took a recess.
At the afternoon session President
James J. Hill, of the Great Northern
railroad, spoke at some length. He said
if the custom houses along the border
were abolished it would make a new
geography, commercially speaking, of
the continent on both sides of the
boundary. The people engaged in prac
tically the same occupation. He saw
no reason why the commerce which now
seeks an outlet at Baltimore, New York
and Boston, should not be divided with
Montreal. Rates that will let the
farmers live and prosper are necessary
for the development of the Canadian
northwest. An arrangement agreed
upon between the two eoant'ies will
snlt in (rood to n portion >,< „hi(> COUTH «.
and all of Canada. He thought it welY
not to ask for so much that the people
will feel that Canada is getting all the'
advantage. If it were possible to build
a ship canal to the Hudson, it would
never approach in effectiveness the nat
ural highway of the lakes and St. Law
rence, if the natural way were improved.
Dr. Orton, a former member of the
Canadian parliament, J. W. Hawne of
Minneapolis and Mr. Hall of Brandon,
Man., spoke on the platform, and S. A.
Thompson of Duluth spoke at length on
deep water-ways to the sea. After
further discussion the platform was
In the evening a mass meeting was
held in the auditorium. Hon. William
M. Springer, chairman of the ways and
means committee of the last house of
representatives, delivered the chief ad
dress of the session.
Springer said in part: "The most im
portant feature in the union of our states
is the absolute freedom of trade which
the constitution secures in all the states
.of the republic. To this feature of our
institutions can be attributed more of
the substantial growth of our country
than to any other cause. If this trade
has been so beneficial, what reason can
we give, what argument can we offer in
favor of continuing this trade among our
own states which will not apply
to trade between the Dominion of
Canada and the United States? That
there has not been the same freedom of
trade between Canada and the United
States seems almost a mystery to one
who can view the situation without
prejudice. Restricted trade between
the Dominion and the United States has
been brought about by the individual
selfishness of special interests. What
is needed is intelligent debate, discus
sions in conventions of this kind, argu
ments in the public press and more un
selfish and patriotic devotion to the in
terests of the masses, as distinguished
from those of the favored classes.
''How can we proceed to bring about
this result? I would favor conferring
upon the president of the United States
authority to appoint an international
commission on oar part to treat with
any like commission appointed by the
Dominion for the purpose of submit
ting to the respective governments
a treaty of reciprocity, embody
ing as far as possible the following pro
visions : Free exchange of the products
of the soil, forest and mines of the two
countries and of the fisheries of the At
lantic and inland seas; free exchange of
manufactured articles, the component
parts of which have been produced in
either ootfntry. Where articles are sub
ject to an internal tax, each country
should impose a tariff equal to the in
"There might be some exceptions to
these general rules which it would be
sate to submit to the judgment of the
international commission. The advan
tages that would accrue to both
countries would greatly stimulate
and promote their commerce, would
develop their growth and re
sources, and confer upon each the in
estimable advantages which have re
sulted from perfect free trade between
the states of our union. Every new
change wonld broaden and widen the
system until there would be nothing left
to remind us of the folly of the past, ex
cept the records of congresses.
"The nearer the Dominion approaches
to absolute free trade with the United
States, the more satisfactory will that
oondiiion be to Great Britain. Under
that system England has developed and
brought to her people a wealth which
could not have been done under any re
striction of trade or interference with
the natural coarse of business."

New Bkokord, Mass., June 6.—The

hex father and step-mother in Fall River
began this morning with a statement of
the case on behalf of the commonwealth
by Attorney Moody, who rehearsed the

these dispatches. He related many in
stances to show that ill:will had long
existed between Lizzie and her step

tOBT IN A CAVE.
Wind-Reader Johnston*'* Faculty Seesas
to Have Fulled Him.
Minnkafolts, June 6. —A special to
the Tribune from Hot Springs, S. D.,
Bays: Guides who went into W'nd cave
to search for Mind-Reader Johnstone,
who, with newspaper men and a guide,
went into the cave to search for a hidden
article, have found several miles from
the month of the cave a note written by
a newspaper correspondent, John Moore,
saying the party lost their way in an
unexplored portion of the cave, and
calling for help, and adding they are
without food or water and will surely
perish if not soon succored. Johnstone
was almost delirious from a wound in
his head caused by a fail in the cafe.
The people of Hot Springs are greatly
excited, and all who know anything of
the cave have joined In the search.
A Decision In the Famous evangelical
Reading, Pa., June 6. —Judge End
licb handed down a decision in the fa
mous Sixth-street Evangelical church
case, in which he sustains the report of
the master in chancery, deciding in
favor of the Dibsites and confirming the
right of Rev. J. J. Shirey and his sup
porters to the possession of the church.
He holds that the Indianapolis general
conference in February, 189 L, was illegal
and void for the reason that, even if the
delegation of power to fix the place of
the conference to the board of publica
tion had been legal, the participation of
Bishops Biwman and Ealrer in the de
liberations ol tb&t body vitiated and
rendered nugatory its action. The case
will now go to the supreme court.

OFF THE STAGE OF LIFE.
Edwin Booth Numbered
With the Dead.
The Great Tragedian's Life
After Many Days of Suffering Belief
Came to Him.
At an Karly Hoar This Morning the
inaetrlons Actor's Spirit Took
Its Flight—A Sketch of
By the Associated Press.
New Yokk, Jane 7.—America's great 1
tragedian, Edwin Booth, who has been j
hovering on the verge of the shadow <
land so many weary days, passed away
at 1:15 this (Wednesday) morning, in
his apartments in the Players' club. A
decline in his physical condition had
been very perceptible for several days,
and as long ago as Saturday night all
hope of saving his life was given up
All day today his condition grew
steadily worse, and at 7 o'clock this
evening Dr. St. Clair Smith was hastily
summoned to the club. After a brief
examination of the dying man, Dr.
Smith prepared a bulletin, which was
posted in the hallway, to the effect that
it was doubtful if Mr. Booth would sur
vive the night. Dr. Smith told one of
the members of the club that the trage
dian's pulse was in the neighborhood of
160, and his temperature over 105.
There was nothing that could be done,
except for the anxioue watchers to sit
by the bedside until the feeble spark of
life was'finally extinguished.
At 10 o'clock another serious change
was noted and Dr. Smith was again sum
moned. He did what he could to ease
the dying moments of Mr. Booth, who,
although completely unconscious, ap
peared to suffer greatly for lack of air,
it being apparently extremely diffi
cult for him to breathe. From
this time until he expired the
great actor gradually grew weaker;
the restless motion of the hands ceased,
and his life finally passed away, when
his breath had died to an almoßt imper
At the bedside were the actor's daugh
ter and her husband, Mr. Grossman ;
Booth's brother-in-law, Mr. Magonigle;
William Bispham, an intimate friend,
and Charleß Farryll.
A Biographical Sketch of the Illustrious
Edwin Booth waa born at Bel Air,
Md., Nov. 13, 1833. Hia father waa the
celebrated actor Juniua Brums Booth.
Edwin when a boy received instruction
from different teachera in the neighbor
hood of hia home, but this tuition waa
neither continuous nor thorough. He
waa thoughtful and studious, and made
much of his limited opportunitiea. He
was reticent and singular, profound and
sensitive, and the eccentric genius of
the elder Booth found in him an object
of peculiar sympathy. The father and
son Were atrangely attached to each
other from the firat, and while Edwin
waa yet very young his father made
a companion of him in professional
journeys. It was in the course of one ol
these tours that Edwin Booth made hie
lirst regular appearance on the stage, at
the Boston museum, September 10,1840.
The nlav waa Oriboer's version of Rich
ard 111., and the youth came forth In
the little part of Tressil. At first the
elder Booth opposed his eon's choice of
the stage, but ultimately he relin
quished his opposition. The boy perse
vered, and presently, etill acting in his
father's train, he appeared at Provi
dence, R. 1., at Philadelphia, and other
places, as Oassio in Othello and Wilford
In The Iron Oheßt—the latter imperson
ation being deemed particularly good.
Edwin Booth continued to act with
his father for more than two years after
the advent at the Boston museum. His
first appearance on the New York stage
was September 27, 1860, at the National
theater, as WilforoV. At the same
theater in 1851, bis father being ill, he
suddenly took the place of the elder
tragedian, and for the first time in his
life enacted Richard 111. This effort,
remarkably successful for a comparative
novice, was hailed as the beginning of a
brilliant future. In the summer of
1852 he accompanied his'father to San
Francisco, where his elder brother, J.
B. Booth, had already established "him
self as an actor and a thea
trical manager, and where the
three now acted in company.
Other cities were visited by them, and
the elder Booth remained in California
about three months. One night at Sac
ramento, seeing Edwin dressed for
.Taffier, in Venice Preserved, he said to
him: "Yon look like Hamlet; why
don't you play it?" a remark that the
younger Booth afterward had good rea
son to remember, for no actor ever
played Hamlet so often or over so wide
a range of territory. Jnst as the name
of Junius Brutus Booth is inseparably
associated with Richard 111., so the
name of Edwin Booth is inseparably as
sociated with that of Hamlet. In
October, 1852, the father and son parted
for the last time, the elder Booth re
turning to the east and dying on a Mis
sissippi river steamboat November 3d.
The California period of Edwin
Booth's professional career lasted from
the summer ot 1852 all the autumn of
1856, and included a trip to Australia,
The young actor at first played parts of
all kinds, and he had a severe experience
of poverty and hardship. Soon, how
ever, he began to display uncommon
merit, and thereupon to attract uncom
mon admiration. One of bis earliest and
best successes was obtained as Sir Ed
ward Mortimer in The Iron Chest. For
a time, indeed, he traveled in California,
conveying bis wardrobe for this piece in
a trunk fashioned and painted to resem
ble a chest of iron. His trip to Austra
lia in 1854 was made with a dramatio
company that included the popular act
ress, Mies Laura Keene, as leading
woman. Previous to this he had in his
brother's theater at San Francisco acted
Richard HI., Shylock, Macbeth and
Hamlet, had made an extraordinary im
pression and acquired abundant local
At this time his acting began to at
tract thoughtful attention from learned
and critical authorities. He stopped
and acted at Honolulu on bis return
voyage from Australia to San Francisco,
and he was then and there the original
representative in America of Raphael
in The Marble Heart. In 1856 he took
leave of California, being cheered on hia
way by several fa>ewell benefits.
Returning to the east, he first ap
peared at the Front street theater, Bal
timore, and then made a rapid tour of
all the largest cities of the south, being
everywhere well received. In April,
1857, he appeared at the Boston theater
as Sir Giles Overreach in A New Way to
Pay Old Debts, and his great success on
this occasion, always regarded by him as
the tnrning point in his career, deter
mined him to endeavor to win the first
place as a tragic actor. His career
since then has been marked by many
vicissitudes of personal experience
and by fluctuations of fortune, but it
has been one of lofty endeavor and con
tinuous advancement. May 14, 1857, he
came forward in New York as Richard
111, and in the following August he was
again seen there in a round of great
characters, all of which he acted with
brilliant ability and greatly to the pub
July 7, 1860, he married Miss Mary
Devlin ot Troy, N. V., an actress
whom he bad met three years before at
Richmond, Va., with whom he shortly
afterward made a visit to England.

Chicago, June S.—Eulalia, the mod
est little princess of Spain's royal house,
is in Chicago. She came today and
thousands of people from every state in
the union and almost every conntry on
the face of the earth were at the train to
see her and give her a welcome to a
truly democratic city. As she disem
barked at the nnion depot in Canal
street Mayor Harrison received her aa
one of Chicago's world's fair guests and
extended to her the hospitality of the
city. Formality was minimized.
When presented to the princess Mayor
Harrison, like a true Kentucky gentle
man, kissed her hand in rapid succes
sion. Others of the reception committee
were presented, and then Prince An
tonio, the.husband of the infanta, the
duke of Tamanes and the remainder oi
the suite followed and handshakings
Then the princess was escorted by
Mayor Harrison to a carriage in waiting,
and the remainder of the party being
quickly seated in their respective con
veyances, the procession started on a
quick pace, escorted by two troops of
United States cavalry, over the bridge
and down town to the Palmer house.
Here, as at the depot, was a large and
enthusiastic crorvd waiting, and the
princess was greeted with loud cheers.
The portico ot the hotel, as well aa the
rotunda, was gaily decorated with Span
ish and American colors. As the princess
entered the hotel she bowed smilingly
to the vociferous crowd, which extended
for several hundred feet on both aidea of
the lines of the yellow-plumed cavalry,
who gave them no chance to break in
upon the entrance aa they would have
liked. The princess and suite quickly
disappeared in the hotel, and the crowd
The committee on ceremonies at the
world's iair held a lengthy session today
and arranged an elaborate programme
for the reception of the infanta Thurs

been provided for a grand parade, with.
40,000 men in line. Trouble has arisen,
however, over the fact that the date in
question is the anniversary of Emperor
William's accession, and the Turners of
