President Says Reciprocity Will Benifit Whole Country Mulatn, Mexico, Feb. 9. Via, Arena Texas, Feb. 10. The Federals who at tacked the Insurrectos here today, were repulsed after a Ave hours', fight General Luque led the assault. The Federal loss was heavy. Troop II, Third United States cavalry, was un der fire during the engagement. Mexi can sheila hissed across the river fre quently. It Is declared by witnesses that fre quently the Federals, chagrined at the frultlessness of their assault, deliber ately turned their guns at groups of v (mien and children who had sought refuge on the American side. One shell from tho Federals fire burst near Capt. Williams of the cavulry, killing an In-surre-cto who was watching the battle from the American side. The Insurrectos took a position on n hill near town, In adobe the houses jind behind the banks of nn Irrigation ditch. The Federals approached In battle line and after shelling the town at long range advanced and the In surrectos opened fire. Tho hottest fight took place along the ditch. Twice the Federals captured the ditch, but each time were driven out by the rebels. It Is Impossible to estimate the number of killed. The bodies of eight Boldiers had been stripped of their weapons but many more were carried off the field. Only one Insurrecto was killed. The Mexican soldiers withdrew a mile from their position and enmpod. Tonight the Insurrectos are moving to a bet ter position ard there is frequent firing between the outposts. Customs Inspector Tom Perrlne and Lrf'e Grigesby were fired on by Mexi can soldiers and their pack horses shot. During the fight leputy Mar shal Warrent disarmed several refugees. Captain Williams has notified Gen eral Luque there must be no more fir Ing across the river. If his orders are disobeyed International complications may arise. Columbus Ohio, Feb. 10. "Reclpro- i city with Canada will benefit the en tire United States, farmer, manufac turer, railroad company, middlemen and warehousemen." This was the declaration of Presi dent Taft in an address here today at the National Corn Exposition. "All will be the gainer," ho said. While his speech was devoted especial ly to showing the farmer had nothing to fear, but much to gain, he attempt- ed to prove also all other Interests of the country would be benellted. The president denied It was a "man ufacturers' agreement" and "an at tack upon the farmer by depriving him of protection," as baa been charged. He said It had been the Re publican party's policy to protect American products and manufactur ers by a high tariff. Temptations to destroy competition by combinations became so great, however, that the party modified Its policy and Imposed the limitation that the tarlfT should be limited for the purposes of protection to the difference between coBt of pro duction in this country and abroad with a reasonable profit to the Amer- J lean producer. Upon this new policy and the f;iot, that the Canadian people, climate and customs, are so much like our own, he Justified the proposed re ciprocity. He showed that Canada cannot grow corn in quantities to com pete with the farmers on this side. The domestic price of wheat, he said, was governed by a world price and ar gued that the Canadian product could not affect the price in the United States. The price of farm lands Is af fected by their proximity to market, and In this particular the American farmer has the advantage. "The greatest reason." he said, "for adopting this agreement Is the fact It is going to unite the two countries, with kindred people and lying together across a wide continent; In commercial and social union to the great advan tage of both. Such a result does not need to be Justified by a nice balanc ing of pecuniary profit to each." The president then presented statls- PICK TEN BEST HYMNS. M. E.
