Not So Certain About Reciprocity
with Canada Being- Good Thing1.
President Taft Announces that He
Will He Unable to Attend Prison
t'onsresa In Omaha Xeat
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, April Special Tele
gram.) In discussing the "farmers free
list," so-called, now under dlHcuHslon In
the house. Congressman Sloan of the
Fourth Nebraska dlstrlca said to The Bee
correspondent, when called upon to outline
his poHltion In this particular schedule:
"The majority party has forced through
the house the reciprocity measure, which
opens without compennatlnn to the Ameri
can farmer our home markets to the
products of Canadian cheap lands.
"The majority, goaded by the unrelent
ing protest which Is coming In from all
quarters, felt Itself forced .to do something
for the farmers. They hurriedly assembled
the waya and means committee and threw
together the bill they choose to call the
'farmers' free list.' Insofar as it Is en
titled to that name, I am favorable to It.
It being an omlnua bill. If a vote aa a unit
la enforced, it must be measured by its
total effect.
"The articles proposed to be placed on
the free list aro.' (1) Jute. (3) cotton ties.
(3) fence wire, (4) farm Implements, (5)
boots, shoe and harness;, (t) meats of all
kinds, (7) flour, meal, etc; (8) lumber, (9)
sewing machines, (10) salt.
"With the first and second factors my
peopls are not conoerned, The avowed
purpose la to reduce the ' cost of each
article to ' the purchaser. This has been
the position taken by practlaally all of the
advocates of the bill.
Here Farmera Are Interested.
"My people are buyers of Nos. 3, 4, 6, 8,
9 and 10. They are sellers of various grains
and live stock, out of which the articles
mentioned in Nos. g and 7 are produced.
If their purchases exceed their sales In
the foregoing list, then mlyht It be said
to be favorable to the farmer? If they
are evenly balanced, then the- farmer h
Kained nothing and the government has
lost some revenue. But if the bales under
this list greatly exceed the farmers' pur-
chaaes, then it la a loss to the farmer.
Aa near as I can figure, ' the Nebraska
farmers' purchases correspond to their
sales within the class in the ratio of about
one to five.
There is, therefore, but one thing for j
the majority of the house to do if the bill
should come up to its designation, and that
Is to cut out Nos. 6 and 7. If they do not,
then are they handing the farmers a poi
soned sandwich instead of the bread of
life. The majority purty, ever since the
famous meeting at Baltimore, have been
assuring the country that when it revised
the tariff it would be schedule by schedule.
L'niiur thla pledge thla bill cannot befalrly
forced through the house a a vnit.
Vote on Each separately.
"We should be entitled to vote on eaoh
of the divisions separate and entirely in
dependent of each other. We have, how
ever, boen given to understand by the ma
jority that the bill Is to be voted upon aa
an omnibus log-rolling proposition.
"To meet this condition I have Introduced
bills covering respectively lumber, boots,
shoes, harness fence wire and sewing ma
chines. These bills will he In the hands of
the waya and means committee long before
this Underwood so-called free list bill will
be voted upon. Their presentation by the
committee, or their withholding, will teat
the sincerity of the majority In ita pledge
to oppose log rolling and revise the tariff
schedule by schedule."
I.obe-ck Talks. In Baltimore.
Congressman Lobeck made his first
speech in the eaat on the "Hustings" at
Baltimore last night, addressing a mass

Congressman Lobeck, touching llkhtly
upon the local Issues Involved, urged the

to a report circulated today It la quite
probable that the young woman who took
the negotiable bonds -worth 1150,000 from

whether or not she will restore $60,000

refused to give up.
Directly after the disclosure of the dis
appearance of the bonda It waa learned
that the young woman had confessed to
having taken these securities.
The young woman appeared to be full
of contradiction and told Mrs. Armour's
lawyers and her banker, J. F. Downing,

Man Charged with Making Confession
Lines Up with Defense.
Lawyer Employed by mions Anra Mo
Manlignl'a Reason for Making
Statement to Proeeeutlon
la Satisfactory.
LOS ANGELES. April . Ortle E. Mc
Manlgal. who la alleged to have confessed
a series of dynamiting outrages, made an
other change of front today. Despite his
declaration to the district attorney that he
would see none of the attorneys for the
defense he held an Interview with Attorney
O. N. Hilton.
The latter said afterward that McManigal
admitted having made a statement to the
district attorney, but gave reasons for do
ing so, which said Hilton, were eminently
satisfactory to the defense.
McManigal. according to Hilton, said
nothing to him about not wanting to see
anyone connected with the defense. He
admitted that he had deceived when he
declared last Thursday to the attorney In
the preaetica of witnesses that he had not
made a confession and did not Intend to
make one.
"I talked to him for fifteen minutes, said
Hilton, "and during that time he gave me
hla reasons and detailed his Impelling mo
tive for giving the district attorney the
statement he made, day before yesterday,
a half hour after he had told me that he
would see no one connected with the de
fense then he changed his mind.
"All the main facts are now la our pos
session and 'you may aay this: 'McManl
gal'a explanation la eminently satisfactory
to us. McManigal gave me all the main
points of his statement to the distrlc at

of defense haa been stated than it will
try to prove that It waa gas which caused
the explosion in the Times building here.

busy preparing for the prosecution his work
probably, will gain an Impetus with the ex
pected arrival here Monday of his assis

It Is thought that Ford will bring with
him considerable documentary' evidence,
possibly a copy of the alleged Chicago
confession of McManigal.
