The terms of the new tariff reci procity agreement between the United States and Dominion of Canada were made public yesterday, simultaneous ly at Washington and Ottawa. Presi dent Taft sent It to CongTess with an extended message, urging1 the confir mation of the proposed treaty. This agreement, if approved by the legislative branches of the two govern ments, will effect a considerable saving in the cost of living in both countries, as It will lower the prices of many commodities and enlarge trade. Many foodstuffs coming from Canada are placed on the free list. It Is a notable fact that no less than ninety one per cent of the Canadian goods im ported Into the United States will ben efit by considerable reductions and on There Is sure The ly nine per cent of our Canadian im ports will remain unaffected. In the opinion of nexUlent Taft the agreement would steady local price movements and postpone the effect of a further world increase In the price of hading commodities entering into the cost of living. The hauls of the agreement is sum marized as follows: Reciprocity on leading food product! tuich as wheat and oilier gialns; dairy products; fresh fruits and vegetables; ttsh of all kinds; ega and poultry; cattle, shee-t) and other live animals.

TO PROBE STATE AFFAIRS. The governor' recommendations for a thorough-goinsT Investigation of the date's various dejwu tments and insti tutions which was one of the features of his message, has borne fruit In the form of a bill reported out by the state affairs committee of the house, which provides for a comml-slon of three Investigators, with the governor an ex-oliii i member who shall w ield the probe in Michigan, says the So. News. This commission, under the bill, Is to tie appointed by the gov ernor and It is proposed to ap propriate $8,000 to be expended under tho direction of this commission in making the suggested investigations. This plan has much more to commend It than that proposed by Representa tive Dusonbury who suggested the ap pointment 'of a joint committee of the two houses to carry on this work, with instructions to report its findings to the legislature within forty days. While the bill does not make such provision, it is to be presumed that this commission w ill make reports and recommendations to the legisla ture as rapidly as they conclude titelr Bring Your Cash.

CARNATION DAY. Next Sunday, Jan. 29. Is the anni versary of William McKlnley's birth, and the date will be generally observed. An organization known as the Carna tion League has come to the front in this country with the request that the people of the United States wear n carnation On that day. This was McKlnley's flower, and the wearing of one on that day will be n fitting observance f the memory of a man who lost his life while serving In the capacity of chief executive of the United states. While Jan. 2D is not ob served In many states as a legal holi day, a mevement has been started to that end, and It Is believed by many that it will be but a question of time when the people in the United States will observe It ns a national holiday. The following circular has been Is sued by the Carnation League: "The life, character and services ef William McKlnley will never pass from tho memory of the people. In his death the nation suffered the loss of a man beloved by nil. The people can not have too tunny days to show their appreciation of such men as this mar tyred president The thoughtful ob- remembered and most talked of Sale ever held Lot Men's Dress Shirts values to $1.50 sale price. .'.

The Incident ef the governor's re fusal t i attend the Dr. Kennedy dinner at Detroit last Saturday night contin ues to be tho subject of much talk at Lansing. Some of the "ant is" in the senate advocate the theory that the governor would like to have an open breach with the senate, so that he could charge it with the responsibility for the failure to carry out such parts of his program as are not accomplished this session, us a preliminary to hav ing a demand go up from the people for him to accept another term. This Is only an "anti'B" view, however. .If the governor lvad wanted a second term it would have been easy enoimh for him to have gotten It by simply saying nothing to the contrary. King Alphonso Is said to be plan ning to annex I'ortugal to his king dom. Considering how rudely the Por tugese people treated Manuel, it would seem advisable for Alphonso to let them alone.
