Washington, D. C. April 18, 1911.
The discussion in the Democratic
House of Representatives on the Can
adian reciprocity bill was opened by
Congressman Kitchin of North Car
olina, who is a member of the Com
mittee on Ways and Means. His
speech was not so much a discussion,
of the merits of the question from
an economic standooint as a. noliti-
as discussed and commented upom
by the Washington papers, is an-!
alyzed to be a political effort, thej
sum and substance of which was'
charging the Republicans with hy
pocrisy, decit, humbuggery, and oth
er sins of omission and commission,
and one which was designed to bring
forth applause and laughter more
The Other Side of Reciprocity.
Mr. Asher C. Hinds, of Maine, who
is serving his first term as a Repub
lican Congressman, but who has fcr
more than fifteen years been the par
liamentary advisor of the Speaker of
the House of Representaives, repliei
to Mr. Kitchin, making the firat
speech in opposition to the reciprocity
bill. Mr. Hinds' speech is one that
is worth - reading and studying
students and statesmen
It is a most!
thoughtful discussion of the econom
ic phases of the reciprocity proposi
tion, and presents so many salient
facts, elucidated by strong and con
vincing logic, that it has attracted the
attention of the whole country. His
speech, while being delivered with
none of the fiery oratorical demon
strations of a political stump speech,
as was Mr. Kitchln's, yet was one
that demanded the closest attention,
and upon its conclusion he was sur
rounded by his political friends and
It was thought that the reciprocity
bill would be brought to a vote on
to-morrow, but this evening it is said
that it will not reach a vote before
Friday or Saturday. It will, of
course, pass the House, and it now
looks as if it would also pass the
Senate by a close vote.

Mr. Kitchin read from several
speeches which Mr. Simmons has
made on the tariff question since he
has been in the Senate, and also
from speeches which he delivered to
the voters of North Carolina when
he was Chairman of the Democratic
Executive Committee, . and from
these speeches Mr. Kitchin showed
that Mr. Simmons has now complete

Mr. Kitchin pretended that he ws
greatly surprised at this sudden re
versal of position of a Senator from
North Carolina, without any reason
or explanation having been given for
so great a change on a question so
fundamental from a Democratic
standpoint. If Mr. Kitchin had re
membered how flippantly Mr. Sim
mons shifted his position on the ship
subsidy bill with the simple explana
tion that he found his vote was un
popular, he might be able to under
stand a sudden shift on the part of
Mr. Simmons on any question with

In this connection, an interesting
story has reached here from North
Carolina to the effect that Senator
Simmons was in Raleigh on last Sat

upon Governor Kitchin, but was clos

is considerable speculation here as to
whether or not Senator Simmons suc
ceeded in getting Governor Aycock to

Asking for Protection-
Washington, D. C, May 17. Pres-
jdent Taft to-night replied to a mes-i
rrom Governor Kicnara tJ. sioani
Arizona asking protection for citl-j
zens of Dougiag from the fire of Fed-j
erals and insurrectos; that he was!
loth to endanger Americans in Mexico
by taking so radical a step as send-j
Ing American troops across the bor
der to prevent further fighting.
The President, in his telegram to
the Governor, stated that the situa
tion might justify him in ordering
troops to cross' the border and at
tempt to stop the fighting or to fire
upon both contestants from the
American side. He hesitated to take
such a step, however, because of thej
posslblllty of resistance and greater
bloodshed and the danger of having
his motives misconstruted and mis
represented and arousing Mexicans
against many thousands of Ameri
cans now in Mexico and jeopardizing
their lives and property.
In view of the conditions, there
fore, the President felt that he
could not order the troops at Doug
las to cross the border, but he again
emphasized the advisability of the
people of Douglas avoiding exposing
themselves to flying bullets.
In his message to President Taft.
Governor Sloan declared that the
situation pointed to a repetition of
to-day's casualties on to-morrow.
That in his judgment radical meas
ures are necessary to protect inno
cent ' Americans, and adding that if
anything :an be done to stop the
fighting at Agua Priesta, the situa
tion calls for such action. "It is
impossible to safeguard the people
of Douglas unless the town can be
vacated," Governor Sloan said."
The reply of the President prompt

upon the Mexican government to is
