tlve a year ago by inviting Can
ada's finance minister, Hon. W. S.
Fielding, to meet him at Albany.
As Fielding says, Taft wanted an
excuse to remove the maximum
tariff disadvantages imposed on
Canada by the Payne-Aldrich law,
and quickly removed them as much
as possible under the law in ex
change for some insignificant de
tails yielded by Canada. Again
Taft made the first move last fall.
The negotiations, begun at Ottawa,
culminated at Washington in the
arrangement announced simul
taneously at both capitals.
What do Canadians think' of
this "reciprocity" so eagerly
sought by our president? Suc
ceeding articles in the Times will

"Democrats" allied with the in
terests are willing to swat the far

Senator Cummins' New York ad
dress is I regarded as an inspired
presentation of the progressive re
publican attitude.
Reciprocity? Yes, but REAL re
ciprocity. Not the Taft kind, they
say, with Its deliberate slap at the
west for daring to lnsurge. Taft's
idea ls this, they say: If the west
is so blamed anxious for free trade,
let 'em have It—-on their own
wheat. _
Well, maybe, say the Insurgents,
BUT If wheat comes In free, so
must the things the farmer buys.
No slashing at his product for the
things he consumes. Let's have re
ciprocity on this side of the line,
as well as with Cauada.
"Reciprocity" is Taft's own pet
project. Canada had given up ever

templatlve thoughts favorable to
the measure.
But at least, I thought, there's
ONE man full of dynamic enthu
siasm for Taft reciprocity—Con
gressman McCall. stepfather of the
thill. I sought him In his Turkish-
I rugged lair. But ho was Just out
of dynamics.
In a blandly casual way he said
his bill undoubtedly would result
In much benefit on both sides of
the border, promote freer com
merce, cause good feeling —and
many other beautiful generalities.
Oh, yes, Its, tendency would he to
lower the price of foodstuffs — but
he couldn't see how it would hurt
the farmer! Reciprocity's right eye
was fixed upon the future when It
would prevent an artificially high
I rice after our Increasing consump
tion of wheat had overtaken our
production. Now, of course, with
Canada and the United States both
exporting large quantities of wheat
tho farmer's return was really
fixed by the world price at Liver
pool.
But there's much dispute about
Liverpool fixing the American
farmer's price. McCumber denies
it, and quotes figures to show that
the American farmer close to the
line gets 10 or 12 cents more a
bushel than his Canadian brother
a mile north. He credits that to the
25-cent tariff. He charges "high
cost of living" to expenses and
profits tacked on after the raw ma
terials leave the producer. To 11-

procity with Canada H. B. R.
Briggs, staff correspondent of the
Times, went to Washington and
then to several cities in Canada,
to find all about it. Her-rr~>ii Is
his first article.)
By H. B. It. Briggs.
WASHINGTON, D. C, April 4.
; ■— one of the 90,000,000 Amer
icans who will pay the freight on
Mr. Taft's extra session, I came to
Washington for answers to these
questions:
What Is "reciprocity"?
Will it get the votes?
If so, what will It do to us?
They know ALMOST everything
In Washington, so I got several
different answers to each question.
The net result seems to be this:
Congress, in extra session, will
chop some holes in oui tariff wall
"on the northern border —probably
BIGGER holes than President
Taft now recommends but they
may not be all the same holes.
It depends upon what you mean
by reciprocity. Mr. Taft's kind
Isn't reciprocity at all, according
to Senator Clapp of Minnesota, a
strong progressive who won't let,
his wheat farmers bo gouged if,
he can help It. Taft's plan is!
purely a tariff measure, sacrific
ing the producer to the manufac
turer, like the Payne-Aldrich bill, I
and must be considered as such, he
aays.
That doesn't mean that Senator
Clapp Is against what HE calls
reciprocity. Nor thai other pro- '
gressives are against real reci
procity. Like young Mr. Twist,
they want more — a whole lot
more —and they want a fairer bal
ance for the farmer. -

Taft "reciprocity." Even those h
who spoke on it In filibuster talks <
before the expiring congress were <
thinking about the fighting over I
things more vital to them — direct I

Beveridge went on record as a
friend of reciprocity ln general, 1
but Beveridge's heart was else- 1
where. McCumber fired a long- I
distance speech at hla North Da- I

"reciprocity" would blast their 1
hopes if more automobiles while i
