NO PLAN TO ANNEX
Secretary Knex Declares Trade Pact Is Not Political. FEAR OF FARMERS ABSURD Nothing But Profit for Them, He Says, in Beciprocity. LAUDED BT JAMES J. HILL Northwestern Bail way Magnate Says There Should Not Be in Con gress One Opposing Vote.* CHICAGO, February 16.?Secretary of State Philander C. Knox and James J. Kill joined hands last night in urging the adoption by Congress of the reciprocity agreement with Canada. Both spoke at a banquet given by the Chicago Association of Commerce. Nearly 1.000 persons, rep resenting almost every big (commercial and industrial enterprise of the city, as well as commercial and municipal organi zations from a score of western cities, listened and applauded. Secretary Knox related the history of ;rade agreements between the two coun tries from 1846, when Canada removed its differential duties against the United States and placed it on a par with Great Britain. "The aim and purpose of the agreement which has been negotiated are to promote better trrfde relations and to < ement and strengthen friendly intercourse between the neighboring nations," he bald. Mr. Knox took the ground that though the people of the United States and Canada are "a substantially homogene ous people," with "deep moral and racial reciprocities," the benefits of the proposed commercial reciprocity with Canada ought not to be obscured by the fear of relations too cordial and conceivably dan gerous to the great Canadian loyalty to Kngland." No Politics in Treaty. Mr. Knox declared that while migra tions proceeded as constantly and as >reely between Canada and the United -tates as between two states of this ? "untry, and while the two peoples have ??en welding together for two centuries, i here was not the slightest probabilfty of any political change or annexation or ?bsorption." "It is probably more true today thAn over before," he continued, "that the weight of sentiment, both in Canada and the United States, while desiring closer relations in all other respects, is crystal lized in a belief that the present political .'-eparation is desirable and will lead to the best development of each nation and to better and more satisfactory relations between them. "In the higher atmosphere and broader aspects of the situation, it is certain that if there should be any great world move ment involving this continent, Canada and the United States would, as a mat ter of course, act in the most perfect con cert in defense of the common rights of a common blood and civilization." Benefits for Present Status. Declaring, however, that the reciprocity proposition was "economic, not political," Mr. Knox asserted: "The United States recognizes with satisfaction that the Do minion of Canada is a permanent North American political unit and that her au tonomy is secure. The United States ap preciates the advantage to the common welfare of the continent that Canada con tributes her own strength plus the strength of Great Britain." Speaking of objection to the bill, Mr. Knox said: "The principal complaints against the measure come from the politicians who have been endeavoring to persuade the farmer that his interest in the protective \ tariff Is baeed on the tariffs on agricul- ! tural products rather than upon the gen eral prosperity of the country, or they are^heard from some local special* inter 'Hill Praises Agreement. The agreement was an example of con structive statesmanship in contrast with many subjects before Congress, accord in? to Mr. Hill. "It is fashioned to large national ends," he said, "and inspired by a policy that the greatest minds of the country have approved. "There ought not be one vote in Con gXMs or one voice in the country aerainst an arrangement worth more than armies and navies. Every man in public life either knows or does not know the true value and effect of reciprocity. If he does not know he is not fit for the re sponsibility he assumes. If he does know, and yet opposes, he is willing to sacrifice the most important Interests of his coun try and to close the greatest opportunity ? >pen to it in years for the sake of some . private political advantage. "Any opposition to a project so ad- i vantageous to the American people is so j extraordinary that the nature and cause ; of it should be considered first. "It comes from three sources, two of t which may be summarily disposed of. j Such of the monopolistic combinations as find their power to overcharge the people imperiled by reciprocity are naturally against it. Thes? and all similar ob jectors are entitled to no consideration. Says Farmers Are Misled. "Am little worthy to be heard are the men in public life who regard this meas ure as merely a grindstone on which to whet the ax of political fortune. "Such of our farmers as oppose the treaty either believe lgnorantly or have been made to believe that its effect would be to lower*the price of farm products. This hue and cry centers about the ef fect of reciprocity upon the prices of wheat and barley grown in the United ! States. If we dispose of the claim that ? !

For this reason it in probable that the price of Canadian wheat would advance under reciprocity. It is certain that the price of American wheat could not de cline apreclably. The case of barley is exactly the same. "There has not been one objection made nor one fear stated, so far as the Amer ican farmer is concerned, to complete reciprocity in farm products which is not proved groundless bv the govern ment's statistical reports." Indorse the Agreement. At the close of Mr. Hill's address. President Wheeler of the association asked the chairmen of visiting delegations for resolutions on reciprocity which the bodies they represented had adopted. The following responded with resolu tions indorsing the agreement: Cham ber of commerce, Peoria, 111.; chamber of commerce, Oshkosh. Wis.: Publicity Club of Minneapolis, Minn.; Commercial Club of Duluth, Commercial Cljb of Minneap olis. Commercial Club of Omaha, Grand Rapids (Mich.) Board of Trade, Detroit Board of Commerce, St Paul Jobbers' and Manufacturers' Association and the Commercial Club or St. Paui. Clark's Talk of Annexation Stirs Canadian Parliament OTTAWA, February Ifi.?There was considerable interest and some irritation here yesterday over Champ Clark's speech, in which he said that the reciprocity agreement was the first step toward an nexation. The government suporters say his speech has given the opponents of reciprocity their only effective weapon. When parliament met yesterday after noon Col. Sam Hughes, a former army officer and the military member of the opposition, directed the attention of tl?e prime minister to these annexation dis patches, and asked If the government had anything to say. Sir Wilfrid Daurier re plied: * "I h'ave not had my attention drawn to it until this moment. I have only to say that the policy of the government is already settled, but if some nefarious in tention of the kind mentioned in these dispatches should be put in action and the worst comes to the worst. I shall call upon my honorable friend and gallant soldier to dispose of it and guard our in terests." "Does the prime minister place the mat ter in my hands?" asked Col. Hughes. "If so, I will proceed to Washington at once." ? Annexation Made Issue. Outside of this incident, the reciprocity debate dragged itself along wearily enough. Martin Birrell of British Columbia, con servative, declared that the reciprocity agreement would bring competition which would result in the ruin of the fruit in dustry of Canada. He also quoted re ports of the speech made by Champ Clark, and declared it was the unveiling of the real intention of the United States in making the reciprocity agreement. Hugh Guthrie, a leading supporter of the government, scoffed at the idea. "In spite of what Champ Clark or any one i else may say, the reciprocity agreement < does not^ imply the annexation of Canada i to the United States or the severance of British connection," said Mr. Guthrie. Opposed in British Columbia. VICTORIA, B. C., February 16.?The British Columbia legislature yesterday adopted the resolution introduced two weeks ago condemning the proposed reci procity agreement between the United States and Canada. There was only one dissenting vote. Premier McBride spoke at length on the resolution, asserting that he regards reciprocity with the United States as un necessary and uncalled for bv conditions now existing in Canadian trade. He said that although he believes freer trade with the United States wouiQ not weaken Canadian loyalty to Great Britain, it would not assist in bringing the Domin ion and the mother country closer to gether. He interprets the agreement as a departure from the established policy which both parties in Canada have recog nized as vital to the welfare of the Do minion. Burton Points to Benefits of Former Canadian Treaty s The beneficent operation of the reci procity treaty .between Canada and the United States from lt??4 to 18ti5 is cited by Senator Burton of Ohio as an argu ment in favor of the pending agreement in a statement he -gave out last night. The farmers benefited by that treaty, and its abrogation was secured, it is charged, by the railioads, which objected to competition in freight lates of the Welland canal in Canada. Senator Bur ton said: "Those who are fighting President Taft's reciprocity program upon the 'ground that it will injure the agricuituial | interests of the country lose sight of the fact that these very interests once upon a time profited immensely by a similar treaty with Canada, and were the principal opponents of the movement that finally succeeded in effecting its abroga tion. This treaty was in force from lv>4 ! to and during its life the business of both countries prospered wonderfully, our exports to Canada jumped from tne $*.>,< K>0P00<> a year to more than $ir>,OiH>,0ou, while the impoits from the Dominion leaped from $rj,O00,OUU to more than *27,000,000. War Interrupted Commerce. "A continuous improvement in busi ness conditions was reported on both sides of the border line until the ap proach of the civil war interfered with commerce, and an appeal to the long sleeping, anti-British sentiment of our people, brought to the front by design ing interests, finally succeeded in se curing the abrogation of the treaty. "The abrogation of the treaty of 1854 has been regarded as a public calamity by practically all the students of our relations with Canada. That treaty placed upon the free list grain, flour and breadstuffs, animals of all kinds, meats (fresh and otherwise), cotton, wool, seeds, vegetable*, fruits (dried and undried). fish of ali kinds, poultry, eggs, hides, furs, crude stone or mar ble, slate, butter, cheese, tallow, lard, horns, manures, ores of all kinds, coal, pitch, tar, turpentine, ashes, timber and lumber of all kinds, firewood, plants, shrubs, trees, pelts, wool, fish oil, rice, broomcorn, bark, gypsum, grindstones, dyestufTs, flax, hemp, tow, unmanu factured tobacco and rags. Reciprocity in Navigation. "It gave American vessels unimpeded access to the Canadian canals and the Canadians the same rights to navigate Lake Michigan. More than that it set tled the Atlantic fisheries question, by permitting American fishermen to flsh where they pleased along the Canadian coasts, without regard to the three-mile limit, and to land upon the coast, to procure bait and for all other legitimate purposes. "That question, when, the treaty was abrogated, reverted to the old and ill defined original treaties, caused a re opening of all the manifold disputes on the Canadian fishing grounds, and was not finally settled until the recent action at The Hague and the following nego :: ?? ?? :: :: :: 8 ?? :: ? ? ? ? :: ? ? :: More Wonderful Savin at O'Oonnell's. 8 :: H I ? i i Old drugs are not cheap at any price.

Circula tion becomes poor, blood thin and waters', appetite fitful and digestion weak. This condition leaves th? sys tem open to disease such as coughs, colds, grippe, pneumonia, rheumatism, etc. VINOL is the greatest health cre ator and body builder we know of for old people, as It supplies the very ele ments needed to rebuild wasting tissue and replace weakness with strength. . HERE IS THE PROOF. A case Is recorded In Albany, N. Y., of a woman who felt she was break ing down by age and was doomed to the weak and feeble condition of old people. She had no strength, and the slightest exertion tired her, but VINOL made her well and strong, and she states that she feels ten years younger than she did before taking VINOL.
