He explained that by making solid quebracho ex tract in place of the liquid product, on which the duty of one-half a cent a poui'd was levied, the foreigners had practically cut the duty in half and he desired a duty of seven-eighths of a cent a pound on the solid extract to equalize the tariff. TAFT GREETED BY AN IMMENSE THRONG Charlotte, N. C., May 21.—President Taft and party, on arrival here, were greeted by an Immense throng which had gathered at the Southern Railway station. A heavy rain fell during the morning, but ceased Just before Mr Taft reached the city. It required the services of several companies of militia to keep the cheering crowds at the depot in check as the president alighted and made his way to a waiting carriage. Mr. Taft, accompanied by Captain Archibald Butt, hhs military aide, was met at North Charlotte by a loca committee. Despite the cessation of rain as the president arrived the weather continued threatening, but in nowise Interfered with the carrying out of the programme. Interest in the president's visit to Charlotte cen tered in the attitude he would take toward the Mecklenburg declaration of Independence, the anniversary of the signing of which is celebrated throughout the state of North Caro Una the 20th of each May. Mr. Taft assumes the position that regardless of the exact language of the deelara tion made in May, 1775, a full year before the signing of the Jefferson declaration at Philadelphia July 4. 1776, the tact remains that there was a declaration of independence on the part of citizens of North Carolina. It is not so material as to the ex act language used," said the presi dent "The measure of a declaration for the principles of civil liberty and self-government is not so much the abuse or denunciation of the former controlling power as the provisions made for the future form of govern ment. The impressive thing about the North Carolinan proposition is the sensible way the people of the state after deciding to sever relations with Great Britain, went about the matter of setting up a government of their own." While the president was reviewing the parade a cloudburst broke over the city and caused a panic tn the dense crowd gathered in front of the stand where Mr. Taft waa seated.
