I The .Mnyor's Statement.
I The Mayor gave this statement to
j the papers, yesterday morning:
"1 know of no law wh/eh will justify
the arrest of the manager of a news
paper for publishing a notice that th?
paper will give $100 to the person who
will identify a woman, acting as its':'
advertising agent, at a certain time j
and place, and under certain condi- j
tions; nor do I know of any law which j
will justify the arrest of a woman who
is acting as such agont and who la
not guilty of any disorderly conduct.
?'I do know, however, that this meth?
od of advertising may be, and believo
that it has been, taken advantage oi
by disorderly persons to annoy ladies
and that such persons are amenable
to arrest and punishment. To prevent
such disorder, and bring such persons
to punishment, I have bad four or five
conferences with the Chief of Police,
and have instructed him to have every
! available policeman at the point at
which this woman was expected to ap?
pear, to keen the streets clear, and
promptly to arrest any person who,of?
fered any indignity or annoyance to
any lady.
"At a conference with the Chief of
Police Saturday morning,. I was led
to believe that there would be no repe?
tition of these disorders, and was sur?
prised to hear of the occurrences Sat?
urday evening,
j "1 am now satisfied that in the in- j

"Washington, D. C, February' 13.?

The main concern of the department
at present is that some of these ir?

Washington, D. C February 13.?The
McCall bill, carrying into effect the
Canadian reciprocity agreement
rcachod the floor of the House to-day
and probably will be passed by that
body before adjournment to-morrow
night. Rven the opponents of the
measure admitted to-day that there
was no hope cf stopping it in l\U
A test vote came to-day soon aftex
the House was called to order by
Speaker Cannon. Mr. MeCall moved
the immediate eonsideration of his bill
This was objected to ostensibly on the
ground that it was District of Columbia
day on th? calendar and that Important
matters of legislation affecting tho Dis?
trict were pending.
When the voting began, however, it
soon became apparent that, with com?
paratively few exceptions, the lines
were being tightly drawn between
those favoring and those opposing the
trade agreement. As finally corrected,
the vote to take up the hill was 197
to 120. The bill will be passed. It is
expected, by even a larger majority.
To-day 101 Republicans voted against
Immediate consideration. This mini
ber will show a decided diminution on
the final call. Sixty-three Republicans
voted for immediate consideration.
Few Democrat* Oppose It.
The Democratic vote was divided ?
13 1 In favor of immediate considera?
tion and nineteen against. Democratic
leaders say there will bo but six pi
(even votes against the passage of the
bill from their side.
No time for a vote was set to-day.
but to-morew Mr. MeCall will endeavor
to secure ah agreement to end general
lebate at f> o'clock and then to begin
*.he reading of the bill for amendment,
'.be House to remain in session until
the measure Is passed.
The test vote taken to-day nnd the
general debate that followed clearly
demonstrated the serious split fhat ex?
ists among the Republicans of the
House on reciprocity, it now appears
thnt a majority of the Republicans
will vote against the measure, although
the President is likely to get more sup?
port from that side of the chamber
than he first anticipated. T.Ike- the
Regulars, the Insurgent ranks also are
torn wide open, and, like the Regulars
again, a majority of them will vote
against the measure.
Some of the Republicans who spoke
to-day declared they saw in the reci?
procity agreement the beginning of the
end of protection. The Democrats ap?
plauded this vociferously.
The Republican spilt is accentuated
hy the fact thnt one member of that
party. Mr. MeCall, of Massachusetts; i.t
directing the debate in favor of the
.measure, and another Republican. Mr
Dalr.ell. of Pennsylvania, Is directing
the fight against it.
Representative Hill, of Connecticut,

Mr. Galncs complained that the reel

Mr. Harrison, of New York, favoring

anxious to bare reciprocity. Tt would

little while, he asserted, that protec?

The farmer, he said, had fe.r years been

"And when he finds that protection

Harrison, "he will help us gel hetter

upon the basis of a plan to allow the]

As the situation stands, it appears
i that the tight at Celba two weeks ago.

! sweeping victory, was the decisive hat

Champ Clark", who had just left th?
House of Representatives, announced
in his address, amid loud applause,
that the test vote for immediate con?
sideration of the Canadian reciprocity
bill had been won by the administra?
tion. Turning to President Taft, hu
said laughingly:
"That's a document which the Presi?
dent and myself own in partnership.
Rut. speaking for myself, not for
President Til ft or any one else. I am
for reciprocity not only with Canada,
but with all Southern and Central
American republics. in fact. I'm in
favor of reciprocity with all nations
of the earth. My principle Is that hon?
est trade never hurt r-ny nation."
Mr. Clark's concluding statement,
that the Tan-American Union nnd Ths
Hague Tribunal were two Influences
which flnnll\ would put an end to war
among civilized nations, was enthual
astlcally received.
"The last Speaker and the next
Speaker and l." said President Taft,
who followed Mr. Clark, "have gotten
together on one plank of the platform;
we're both rather heavy men, nnd I
hope it'll support us. Tt's a great

Legislature we have already gotten

and I hope we can carry It through."
Mnhei YVnr Less l.lkely.
The President declared that the pro?
motion of commercial relations neces?
sarily brings about a closer political
and social relationship between na?
tions, and "makes less likely the hos?
tility and hard feeling that are. like?
ly to lead to war."
"1 have no doubt." added the Presi?
dent, "that as commercial relations be?
come wider and The Hague Tribunal's
purpose in precenting war become?
better understood, the union of all
the countries In this world can b?
done by an International union for the
purpose of maintaining peace."*
Secretary Knox emphasized the part
that American capital should play in
developing the resources of the Pnn
A merlon n countries.
"I/Ct me candidly confess," he said,
"that tn the past we have been too
ignorant of our Southern neighbors,
their vast undeveloped resources and
the measures they have been taking
to open themselves to the world. The
trade currents which flow between
the United States and its Uatln-Amerl
