Washington, trMarch 14 -At the end
of a long conference with his tariff ad
v'is rs today President Taft fhat nut'
decided what actitln he will take on
the exteihon to a nanada and e rance
of the minimum tariff rates of the
Payne law. It is slid the situation
with respect to Canada 1s all but hope
less, ttnd the indications are that the
biggest, and nearest neighbor of the
United States may be the one lim

maximum rules will be applied. In
striking contrast to the attitude as
% sumned by f'anada, France Is making
every effort to roach tin agreement
