Madrid, Jose Canalejas, premier of

suicide. The premier was killed in

facing the busiest square In Madrid.
Was a Liberal.
Canalejas was a liberal In politics,
appointed premier in February, 1910,
succeeding Antonio Maura, a conser
vative. In the main, his term of office
was quiet until a few months ago,
when a bitter discontent developed
among both politicians and people.
Canalejas' resignation wns demand

alleged that ho was not keeping tho

The famous railroad strikes followed.
Trouble was feared when the recent
Spanish parliament convened. If
Canalejas could exert sufficient influ
ence on King Alfonso to limit the
church power, it was feared that the
church would declare for Don Jaime,
tho Carllst protender, and try to ele
vato him to tho throne.
The streets were crowded and great
confusion followed the shooting. The

well as many republicans, Immediately.

Washington. A greater opportunity
to give the south a feeling of "owner

told tho United Daughters of the Con
federacy at their annual convention
tho president declared that "cir
cumstances hnvo rendered more dif
ficult for a republican administration
than for a democratic one to give our
southern brothers nnd sisters the feel
ing of close relationship and owner
ship In tho government of tho United
States." Activity of southerners In
official life consequent to democratic
control of tho government, ho said,
would give the south a feoltng of

toward eliminating sectional fcellii"
PRE8IDENT TAFT FIXES
PANAMA CANAL RATE8
Merchant Vessels Will Pay $1.20 Per
Ton Coastwise And U. 8.
War Vessels Free.
Washington. President Taft has
Issued a proclamation fixing tho rates
that tho foreign shipping of the world
shall pay for passage through tho
Panama canal. The proclamation,
mado under authority of the canal
act passed by congress in August, es
tablishes a merchant vessel rato of
$1.20 per net ton of nctual carrying
capacity, with a reduction of 40 per
cent on ships in ballast.
The provisions of the proclamation
are as follows:
"1 On merchant vessels carrying
passengers or cargo, $1.20 per net ves
sel ton; each 100 cubic feet of actual
"2 On vessels In ballast without
passengers or cargo 40 per cent less
than the rate of tolls for vessels with
passengers or cargo.
"3 Upon navel vessels, other than
transports, colliers, hospital ships and
supply ships, 50c per displacement
"4 On army and naval transport,
colliers, hospital ships and supply
ships $1.20 per net ton, the vessels to
be measured by the samo rules as nre
employed in determining the net ton
nage of merchant vessels.
American coastwise shipping was
exempted from tolls by congress. It
was to this nrovlsion of the act thnt
Great Britain diplomatically protested.
No reference to tho incident was made
In the president's proclamation.
American naval vessels are ex
empted without specific mention,
either in the act of congress or tho
proclamation because tho authorities
belleyed It unnecessary to explain tho
UBelcssness of payment from Its' navy
The rates named are practically tho
same as will bo in force at the Suez
canal next year.
