It had been the expressed wish of
nuny of the representatives present
to form an Internationa! association
for th? interchange of opinlms and
information between Iron and steel
producers of the world concerning all
questions relating to the Industry, an
organization broad In the scope of Its
activities. He believed It feasible.
Necessarily, It should be formed and
managed. Judge Gary concluded, so as
to avoid antagonism or interference
of any other ln.c tlti|t!on, and so as to
secure public approval.
Baron Van Rodenhausen, of the
Krupp works, speaking for the Ger?

Washington. I>. C. July 5.?The rlSht
of President Taft to negotiate the Ca
radian reciprocity agreement, to send
It In completed form to Congress lor
enactment, un.l to defend and advocate
li In ' stump speeches" throughout the
country, was asserted in the Senate to;
day by Senator Burton, of Ohio) at the
conclusion of ar important speech in
support and explanation of the reci?
procity bill.
The Senate agreed at. the conclusion
of lo-day'? session to sit dally at 11
o'clock, and It Is expected that the ses?
sions will continue until 5 o'clock.
| Chairman Penrose, of the Finance
Committee, advocated dally sessions
at lo o'clock, but the Democrats who
favor the reciprocity bill feared this
would be taken us a move to force
hasty action and would result in biter
[ feeling.
Senator Burton's speech followed crit?
icism by Senator Cummins, of Iowa,
Republican Insurgent, earlier in the j
'day of the speech made by President.
Taft yesterday at Indianapolis. Sen-j
I ator Cummins ssld he believed It was
better for the President to try to mold 1
opinion by appealing to the people In
speeches than for him to use the power
of the President's office to pass the;
bill through Congress, but he criticized
vigorously the Indianapolis speech, in
which the President said the Canadian
agreement would probably not reduce,
the cost of living.
In His Clear Right.
"Some degyee of censure has beer,
visited upon the administration for
sending in this agreement." said Sen-j
ator Burton "It Is the clenr right of,
the President, under the Constitution.!
to mnke communications and recom?
mendations to Congress. It is his right'
also to express on the stump. In what-!
ever terms he may choose, his advocacy :
of *i certnln line of policy.
"Not only President Taft, but hiai
predecessor and other Phesidents, have!
made free to advocate with no uncer-1
tain sound national policies recommend
ed by them in messages. Otherwise
the President would neither be the;
leader of his party nor occupy that,
place in the public attention which,
the public demr.nds of him.
"Of course, it Is for the Senate or!
th? House to accept, reject or amend
any proposition that ho may send to
Senator Burton urged that the agree. J
men', notwithstanding the power of.
Congress to change it. be passed with- ,
out amendment. He said It undoubt- '
edly did not please every body: that It :
probably had satisfied neither Presi?
dent Taft nor the Canadian commis?
sioners when it was completed. j
"But it is here." said Senator Bur-'
ton, "and I stre-ngly urge that It be j
adopted without change. Any modi- '?
ficatior. renders a situation now deli?
cate more intricate and liable of fail?
Mr. Burton emphasized that those
wh i based their objections to the agree?
ment on the ground that the farmer
would suffer injury were virtually
fighting for higher duties for the farm?
er. He said no injury to the farmer
could follow the removal of duties on
farm porducts except in certain local*
ities along the border. To keep the |
duties at the present figure, he said,
would be to plnce the consumer at the
hier >' of a short market and rlslni?
prices when the time arrived that
American production does not equni
American consumption.

In an autograph letter received to
?iuy by thejApustollc delegate to Wash?
ington, applauds, the lead taken by the
United .-;:jtv.- in the world-wide cam?
paign for International peace. Although
the. Pontiff does not mention Presi?
dent Tatt specifically by name, a copy
of the letter was forwarded to-night
to the White House, it is expected
the President, because of his well
known peace views, will reply to the
cordial sentiments of the ruler of the
church. The letter follows:
"To our \enerabl? Brother,
Diomedes. Titular Archbishop of
Larlsswj Apostolic Delegate to
the United States of America:
"Venerable Brother. Health and
Apostolic Benediction:
"We are i.appy to learn from you
that in tue L'nmd States of Amer?
ica, under the leadership of men
enjoying the highest authority
with the people, the more Judicious
members of the community are
fervently desirous of maintaining
the advantages of international
peace. To compose differences, to
restrain the outbreak of hostilities,
to prevent the dangers of war. to
remove even the anxieties of so
called armed peace, is, indeed, most
praiseworthy, and any effort in
this cause, even although it may
not immediately or wholly accom?
plish Its purpose, manifests, never?
theless, a zeal which cannot but
redound to the credit of its authors
and be of benefit to the slate. This
is especially true at the present
day, when vast armies. Instrumen?
talities most destructive to human
life, and the advanced state of
military science portend wars,
which must be- a source of fear
even to the most powerful rulers.
Wherefore, we most heartily com?
mend the work already begun,
which should be approved by al!
good men. and especially by us
holding, as we do. the supreme
pontificate of the church, and rep?
resenting Him who is both the God
and the Prince of Peace; and we
most gladly lend the weight of our
authority to those who are striving
to realize this most bt-neficial pur?
pose. For we do not doubt that
the same distinguished men who
possess so much ability and such
wisdom in affairs of state will con?
struct In behalf of a struggling
age a royal road for the nations
leading to pcara and conciliation
in accordance with the laws of jus?
tice and charity, which should 1
sacredly be observed by all. For.
inasmuch as peace consists in
order, who will vainly think that
it can he established unless he
strives with all the force within
him that due respect be every?
where given to those virtues which
are the principles of order and Its
firmest foundation.
"As for the remaining aspects
of the matter, we recall to mind
the example of so many of our
Illustrious predecessors, who,
when the condition of the times
permitted, rendered. In this very
matter also .the most signal ser?
vice to the cause of humanity and
to the stability of governments;
hut since the present age allows
us to aid In this cause only by
pious prayers to God. we, there?
fore, most earnestly pray God, who
knows the hearts of men and In
clinto them ns He wills, that He
may grant to the nations which,
?with united purpose, nre laboring
to this end that the destruction of
war and Its disasters he averted,
they may at lentrth find repose in
the benuty of peace.
"As a pledge of divine favor and
S proof of our benevolence, we
must lovingly grant you, Venernhle
Brother, the Apostolic benediction.

The letter. It is understood, was
Inspired by the recent Jubilee at Bal?
timore, when Cnrdinnl C-ihhons cele?
brated the fiftieth anniversary of his

Spoils More in Three Months
Than Horace Buys in Three
Schoolmaster Taft Also Says
Brother Charley Felt Foolish
in Short Trousers.
[Special to The Times-Dispatch]
Cincinnati, O.. July S.?Horace Taft,
who owns a famous school for hoys
at Water town, Conn., and is the
youngest brother of President William
Howard laft and a half-brother of
Charles P. Taft, says he cannot un?
derstand just how "Brother Will" gets
along in snich hot weather as this. He
says that the President spoils more
clothes by perspiration In the summer
time t'.ian he buys in three years, and
that he doesn"t wonder that the Presi?
dent preferred to remain seated in his
private car when It passed through
Pfttshurg to getting out In the hot
sun and speaking to the people.
"Gcemlnee Christmas! But this hot
weather plays havoc with a man of
his heft and build." said the President's
brother this afternoon. "It certainly
is too hot to live. Beastly." This Is
the only klnel of weather when 'Will'
suffers He stands It pretty well,
though. I've often told him that he
was very foolish to get out and speak
in such weather. But he Just grins
and says he'd rather do thnt than stay
at home, where it's cool.
"And the way he does ruin h!s
clothes! Why, do you know, he spoils
more In three months than T can af?
ford to buy In three years. But 1
guess when you get right down to
figures, that ?Will's', perspiration does
him more good than my slininess does
me. But what I've never been able to
figure out is that Will stood the hot
weather In the Philippines in great
style, and can't stand the heat hero.
".SpeakinR of Brother Charley, he's
been having a dandy time at the coro?
nation ceremonies in I^onJon. I ruoss
the only thing that he felt foolish
about was the wearing of knee trou?
sers. He wrote me that he was mighty
glad so few Americans were there,
and that he felt satisfied when he

London, July 6.?The rum.">rr. that
Great Britain his ordered any naval
movement on account of Moroccan af?

however, that the British government,

the gravest concern the possibility of
the establishment of a German naval

The French government considers
that the presence of a German ivurshlp
