VOL XX CALUMET HOUGHTON COUNTY, MICHIGAN, SATURDAY AFTERNOON FEBRUARY 1 1, 191 1 NO. 87 OPPORTUNITY TOO GOOD TO BE PASSED UP President Taft Says We Will Add Strength to Our Country By Adopting the Reciproc ity Agreement TALKS TO III.; LEGISLATURE Gives Splendid Address in Support of Important Legislation Now Pend ing in the United States and Canada. Springfield, III., Feb. 11. President Taft defended the proposed reciproci ty agreement with. Canada .In an ad dress before the Illinois legislature here today as the "logical conclusion" of the protection plank In the last re publican national platform. t He de lieJ the protection theory as on that should Impose a tariff not exceeding the-difference In the cost of produc tion In this country and abroad and allowing a fair margin of profit for the home producer. He argued, there fore, that Inasmuch as the conditions of production from "the United States nnd Canada "were substantially the same," "the widest, latitude was given Secretary Knox and the com missioners who represented the United States In offering; to Canada a reduc tion of duties on goods and products coining Into this country from Canada in consideration of the establishment of the same duty, or freedom from duty, on similar goods going Into Can ada. "A reciprocity agreement Is give and take, and my Impression Is that when you examine closely this agreement, you will congratulate yourselves that we were able to make one that cov ered so wide a range of subjects." The president declared the criticism that reductions had been avoided pur pom ly on manufactured articles whol ly unfounded and that a reciprocity agreement between the United States and Canada must of necessity relate more to agricultural products than to manufactures. "The suggestion that the opening of our markets to Canadian wheat and other cereals," continued the presi dent, "will reduce the price of land In Ohio, Illinois, Indiana and Iowa, is re futed by every table of satlstics and represents the comparative Increases of land In those states under the In iluence of the opening of the wheat fields of the states further west. "To let the wheat of the northwest come down to Minneapolis and Chica go will steady the price of wheat, will prevent Us lluctuatlons, will make much more difficult speculation and will furnish us greater Insurance against short crops nnd high prices. Itut that It will In the end substan tially reduce the price of wheat, which is fixed for the world in Liverpool, no one familiar with the conditions will assert. it will give to the United States much greater control of the wheat market than It has ever had before. It will enable Its milling plants to turn Canadian wheat Into our and send abroad the finished predict, and It will stimulate the sale of ::inufac- tures and other things that we have! to sell to Canada." , The president further asserted that In removing the artificial barriers be tween the northwestern part of the United States and the Canadian prov inces, the agreement would result In the bringing over of live cattle to feed n the corn of the American farmer. He added that the rapid Increase of population in the United States re quired "a source of food supply like Canada, right at our doors." "We shall be blind Indeed, said the president,' "If we reject this' golden op portunity to add to the strength and "virility of our country by thus Increas ing our self supporting caiaclty.

After hav ing eluded the 'pollen In a chase half way around the world, only to be run to earth at last In a little mountain village of Bulgaria, Varum Nalban dlan," will be placed on trial here Mon day for an alleged murder committed in Lynn in July, 190U. The victim of the tragedy was Mlnas J. Monjian, tho friend and roommate ef . Nalbandlan One day in July, 190:, Monjlan'u body we. j found in a trunl: In his room with a bullet through the heart. He had boon dead for several days when found. Na'.rjar.dian was missing. The pollco allege thnt Monjian had several hundred dollars, which had also dis appeared. An Indictment for murder was re turned against Nalbandlan and the hunt for him began. The police chas ed him, to England, and then through Germany. Only bjc Jumping from one city to another nnd keeping always on tho move did the fugitive escape nrost In Germany. Tor a time the po lice lct trace of him, and then he was re-located in Alexandria, Egypt. Through an nciiualntanco of the chcif of pollco of Lynn, who had been In Alexandria, the ,'issachusetts au thorities get in communication with a mission priest in the Egyptian city and persuaded to keep them Informed as to NalVandlan's movements. The priest followed Nalbandlan to tSilistria In Bulgaria. Here Nalban dim evidently thought himself safe, for the police learned that hp had started a small clothing store there. The United States consul at Bucharest wi's communicated with and Nalbandlan was taken into cus tody fry the Bulgarian authorities anil held to await extradition.. The evidence of alleged murder Is purely circumstantial so far as Nal bandlan Is concerned. Since hi con finement In Jail hero tho young Bul garian Is said to have admitted that he Ehot MonJ'np. but declared that It wan purely an accident. This theory is ml iantlatc d 1y the fact that the two men were warm friend, and had Veen seen chatting pleasant I v together only a shct time 'before the killing Is believed to have occurred. While Nal- banV.nn may have concealed the body after thf accidental killing and then fled through far, there Is much evi dence to indicate that he robbed his friend. Ac-nrding to the statements of his acquaintances the young Pul srarlnn wn twtlfvilly pennllow be fore .the Fhontlng, while afterward he evidently had fund' sufficient to take him to Europe nnd to travel over a large section of that continent.

That City Lands a Half Million Dol lar Manufacturing Plant. Menominee Is to have a $500,000 manufacturing plant which will give employment to two hundred men. An agreement has been reached between tho Empire Portland Cement company and the Menominee Commercial club where-by the former will erect a fac tory on a site just north of the Lloyd Manufacturing company's plant on the bay shore. The city council has au thorized the mayor and the city clerk to pay the Commercial club the sum of $7,500, to be used In the Interest of the city. Of this amount $3,000 will be expended towards the purchase of a site for tho Empire Portland Ce ment company's factory. The remain der, or $2,500. will be used by the Commercial club In advertising the city. This motion was made and passed upon the recommendation of Mayor H. T. Emerson. The mayor brought up the matter by reading let ters of agreement that had been made between the Cement company and the Commercial club. By these documents It was shown that tho Cement company had agreed to commence operations on a factory at Menominee by the first of June. Fif ty thousand dollars must be expended before Dec. 31, 1911, in order that the company may get the deed to the fac tory site. If the company has not ex pended that sum by that time, but has expended only a portion . of the amount, it agrees to purchase the site for $12,000. Mayor Emerson, in speak ing in favor of expending the money, stated that he thought the purchase of the land would be a good Invest ment for the city, even though the fac tory failed to locate at Menominee, which he stated Is not probable. The officers of the Cement company visited Menominee some time ago with a view of locating a manufacturing plant there. The Commercial club showed them a number of sites and the one selected was the property north of the Lloyd Manufacturing company tract with a 600-foot frontage on North State street, next to the bay. With the aid of the $5,000 given it by the city, the club purchased the property and the deed has been placed with the First National bank In escrow. HARRY THAW'S BIRTHDAY.
