The news of the archbishop's death was flashed to all parts of the city and in every parish the bells of the Roman Catholic churches were tolled. Archbishop Ryan was considered the greatest of the line of bishops and archbishops that have occupied the Episcopal see of Philadelphia since its erection in 1808. His reputation was national and in his home city be was accorded a popular recognition that far surpassed that of any of his prede cessors, he having been on the friend liest terms with men of all religious denominations.

AT NATIONAL CORN EXPOSITION Minneapolis Recognised as a Big Wheat Mart—Equal Benefit Pre dieted for Farmer, Manufact urer Middleman and All. Columbus, Ohio, Feb. 11.—Carrying forward' his campaign for Canadian reciprocity. President Taft made a di rect appeal to the American farmer on that issue. He declared that the Impression which had gone abroad that reciprocity with the Dominion would Injur* the farmer was entirely without foundation and by statistics and arguments he sought to lend actu al proof to his assertions. Mr. Taft declared without reserva tion that the reciprocal agreement with Canada would be a benefit rather than a detriment to the agricultural interests of this country. He said he said this ki answer to the criticism which had been directed against the measure presumably on the part of the farmer. As for himself, the president said he felt that undoubted general benefit of the pending agrement would entirely vindicate those who are re sponsible for It. The greatest reason for the adop tion of the agreemeat, he argued, is the fact that it would unite two coun tries with kindred people and lying together across a wide continent, in a commercial and social union, to the great advantage of both. "Such a result," added the presi dent, "does not need to be justified by a nice balancing of a pecuniary profit to each." At the Corn Exposition. Mr. Taft's address, the first of bis present trip into the middle West, was delivered at the National Corn expo sition In the auditorium at the state fair grounds. The auditorium, which has a seating capacity of more than 4,000, was crowded to overflowing. The crush about the doors was so great that the services of a score of policemen were called for. Mr. Taft's address was listened to with the deep est interest and he was warmly ap plauded at intervals. The president's speech consisted in large part of figures in substantiation of claims. For instance, so far as the corn raisers are concerned, Mr. Taft showed that the total Canadian yield was but six-tenths of 1 per cent of the total production in the United States. "Certainly, with respect to corn," he added, "the American farmer is king and will remain so, reciprocity or no reciprocity." This statement elicited a quick re sponse from the big audience and the demonstration was renewed when the president, in closing, said: "L«t the agreement be adopted and go iriio operation and Ir. six months the farmers on the bo\er who now Lave fears will rejoice in this great step toward closer business and social relations with -our neighbors. The whole country, farmer, manufacturer, railroad company, middleman, ware houseman, all will be gainer." Taft in Illinois Today. President Taft continued bis reciprocity campaign in Illinois today. During the forenoon he made brief extemporaneous speeches at Cham paign and i. -oatur. In the afternoon he delivered an address on reciprocity JV STRONG POINTS MADE FOR RECIPROCITY BY PRESIDENT TAFT IN SPEECH AT C0LUIVB JS "Open up the markst of Minneapolis and Chicago, give the trans pertation and warehousing facilities of our Northwest and the Canadian farmer will get for his wheat practically what the American farmer gets, less the higher freight charges due to greater distance from market. In other worda, the advantage we give the Canadian farmer will not hurt our farmer, for the price will remain the aame but by patronizing our elevators, our flour mills, our railroad*, he will aecure admission to the world's market at a less cost to himself, while we will secure the ad vantage of increased trade for our elevators, our mills, our railroads and our commission men." "Let the agreement be adopted and go into operation and in six months the farmers on the border who now have fears will rejoice in this great step toward closer business and social relations with our neighbors. The whole country—farmer, manufacturer, railroad company, middleman, warehouse man, all will be the gainer." "The United States secures for the farmers the free listing of such important agricultural products aa cottonseed oil, all kinds of fruits and vegetables, timothy and clover seeds, eggs and numerous other products in which the movement to Canada from the United States is much greater than from Canada to the United States." "The difference in the value of the acre between Manitoba and Min nesota is but little more than $8, while the difference between Minneso ta and Wisconsin is $6, between Wisconsin and Illinois is $52, belween Wisconsin and Iowa is $40, between Michigan and Indiana is $31. These figures show Incontestably that the fear of a reduction in farm land val ues of this country by letting in Canada's products is wholly unfounded. "The principle of production takes away the justification for any tariff whatever by way of protection, on articles imported from a coun try where the conditions as to labor and other circumstances arc the same as in ours and thus makes the cost of production substantially the same." "Should we not, by taking down a useless and unnecessary tariff wall bring within our agricultural resources the great plains of the Northwest when they can bring to us what we need and that without hurting any of our own people?" "Canada is our neighbor on the North for 3,000 miles. Her popula tion is English, Scotch and French. Her soil is like ours. Her traditions are the same as ours. Her language Is ours. Her climate is temperate liks ours, except that her growing seasons are shorter and she cannot raise corn in any great quantities. She has a free, popular government, with a wage-earning class as intelligent and aa well paid as ours. It is difficult to see in what respect her farmers have any advantage over our own except a virgin soil in the Far Northwest." "The greatest reason for adopting this agreement is the fact that it is going to unite two countries with kindred people and lying together across a wide continent, in a commercial and social union to the great advantage of both. Such a result doeB not need to be justified by a nice balancing of pecuniary profit to each. Its undoubted general bene fit will vindicate those who are responsible for it. I say this in order that by answering the arguments directed to the detailed effect of the agreement upon different classes of persons I may rot be thought to abandon the broad ground upon which the opportunity to confirm this agreement ought to be seized." before the Illinois state legislature at Springfield and in the evening will make an address at a Lincoln day ban quet in that .city. The president was met at the sta tion by Governor Harmon, a commit tee of citizens and a cavalry escort. After a brief parade through the city, Mr. Taft motored out to the fair grounds. Following his address, he visited Governor Harmon's home for a few minutes. He dined informally with 60 guests at the Ohio state uni versity, leaving later for Champaign. Owing to a severe cold and sore throat, the president was compelled to cut a part of the program outlined fey him in this city. In order that he might receive treatment and be in a position to carry out the important speaking engagements on the present trip, the president brought his physi cian, Dr. J. Richardson of Washing ton, along with him. Mr. Taft will be back in Washington Monday morning, to remain until the end of the session of congress. Me has not amplified his position as to an extra session, believing it is perfectly well understood by this time and that congress will govern itself acocrding- Despite Taft's Speech. Upon the heels of President Taft's speech about 300 members of the Ohio Corn Improvement association, in ses sion at the exposition, adopted reso lutions condemning the proposed re duction in the tariff on farm products. The resolution read: "We doubt the wisdom of throwing open unreservedly our ports to Cana dian farm products. By so doing the American farmer will be unable to obtain a fair compensation for the time and labor which he invests in his business and we recommend that no action be taken by our national government that shall be detrimental to his interests." $?0,c00 For Aviation Prize, .of France has authnri/.i'l an aviu Caus l.ake, Feb. 13.-- ,linl:,'e C. \V t!cn prize of $20,(too, to be contested for this year.
