Guatemala City for consultation with
President Cabrera on matters concern

said. "Hundreds of thousands have

and they stand ready to Impoverish
themselves to bring about the fall of the
Diaz ring in ' Mexico. They were wise
enought to transfer their immense' for

embarked in the revolution.
"There-is no question of the disrup

'"! -. ; ...... 5
Norfolk, March 24 Bitterly opposed
to tbe reciprocal trade agreement with
Canada as inimical to -their business.
members of the North Carolina Pine
Association, in their , annual meeting
yesterday in the Monticello Hotel, gave
Voice to a strenuous protest against its
adoption, 4' Jirey declared. that it wotfld
hurt, their trade to be placed on an equal
footing with . Canadian manufacturers
and that they could not compete with
their, brethren across the hoe unless
protected by a tariff wall. Several talks
fwere - made and each speaker found
something in the bill to object it " r
''Just two interests are behind the
propoted reciprocity : bill," said Mr.
Brunson, manager of. tbe National Lum
ber Manufacturers'! Association, 7 ho
was clled to the. floor, "and they" are
the "Jim Hill" line of railroads and tbe
newspapers off the country. ' Jim pill
wants the bill passed, for: his own per
sonal gain and the newspapers are? af
ter free wood pulp, which means a tre
mendous raving to them. , . : '
"This reciprocity," he went on, 'la a
foundling, and its father is greed.
Taft is the mid-wife, who is fondly nur
sing the infant, ' The newspapers you
will not;ce have already eased up1 on
their attx.cks on the President, sndjthis
is the chief reason whir he wants 1 re
ciprocity so badly. , , : h'?t' ,
. "This trade agreement, if ilt goes
through, may not affect the manufac
turers of short leaf pine so much, , but
your brotherss on the Pacific coast are
going to be up against it, Youv owe iti
to your brother out there to do all in
your power to fight the bilL" ! :;
The speaker said that the agreement
wag thrown ' together in a hurry by
those who drew it , up for the United
States, While Canada had had experts
working on it for a long lime. ' It was
money in the pockets of the Canadian
manufacturers, he declared, and meant
the reduction of prices on lumber in the
United Slates. . '
f'The Canadian manufacturerr del not
favor the aifrementr" said -the spfck
er, '"That is, I mean the old conserva
tive manufacturers. They want a tariff
wall and do not want to have to fight
for business With the American manu
facturers." . : ' ' y-
The speaker said that President Taft
himself, even after the bill was framed
did not know what it contained and that
on one occasion he showed his ignorance
of its provisions, by declaring a certain
clause was in the bill that upon investi
gation was not there at all. ' 1
, Taking a view opposite to that of the
lumber manufacturers' was Congress
man John H. Small who made; an ad
dress before the association last night
He said that the reciprocioy bill, if pas
sed, would not hurt American manu
facturers at all; that free trade on lum
ber now existed with other countries
and that the passage of the agreement
would not be felt by the association.

As it is now abouthalf the carriers are

only the general "delivery window will
b kept open, and that only for a ahort

Mann is an able parliamentarian and

! It is asserted by parliamentary ex-

when he ordered, an adjournment in
stead of a recess early in the morning
of March 4th. By law the terms of re

March 3, but it is usually the custom to
allow the "legislative day" of March S

Notes From Oriental. '
Oriental. March 26. -The matter, of
greatest interest here today was the
land sale by the Southern Realty Com
pany, of Greensboro. Mr.. E. M. An
drews. the manager, with his auction
eers had everything in readiness,' and
last night the Aurora brass band ar
rived to take its part Although it was
rather cool in the early morning the
band was out betimes playing some
really good music which was heartily
enjoyed by the citizens.
The land sold lies about one and one-
half miles from town, towards th'Bay
boro road, another tract is known as
Neuse River Heights, Which is si very
desirable location. The first tract
only partially cleared, but it sold well)
small lota went from 130 to $75 each,
quickly. The other property of course,
sold higher. It is understood that, most
of the land was bought for improve
ment and not for speculation.
Oriental is not on any special boom,
but it is gradually making a substan
tial growth that makes for permanency.
Two large saw mills here, the, Roper
Lumber Con.pany's and the Defiance
Box Factory, the fish catching and
packing business, trucking and other
forms of sgriculture constitute the main
I industries of the town and section,
there are a number of smaller ones such
as Concrete Works where tiling and
plastic ornaments are manufactured,
an ice factory, carriage shops, livery
and sale stables and so on, besides- the
hotels snd boarding houses, of which
there are a plenty, to accommodate ss
many guests as may arrive, The town
also has f everal art' sian weils f rotn '
which flow continual streams of health
giving mineral water. Oiienlal can

It waa known that in this case, as is
the invariable rule in diplomacy. Presi
dent Taft and Baron Uehida agreed be
fore they parted as to what statement
shou'd be made public! ' and under the
circumstances the statement made was
the most obvious one possible, accord
ing to the diplomats. It is pointed out
that it was the natural announcement
for this country to declare its f riendli-
ness for Japan, and in turn for Japan
to do the same, in view of the fact that
recent developments were satisfactory
to the United States. -: ; ' ,
.It was learned todiy that the secret -
Japan-Mexican treaty, the existence of
which was publicly denied by all officii" Is
was formed in April of last year, when
a special agent of the Mikado went to
Mexico City and concluded the negotia
tions. Since that time : the United
States has been watching every devel
opment with the utmost care and obser
ved . with increasing displeasure the
growing activity of Japan in Mexico,
This continued until the Japanese prac
tically controlled the Isthmus of Tehu-
antepei a ml tne ports on tne west coast
of Mexico below Gusymas. This was
accentuated and corroborated when ten
days ago the Pacific Mail Steamship
Company, realizing the futility of com
bating the Japanese " ton the west coatt
of Mexicothrew up its hands and an
nounced its withdrawal! from Salina
Cruz,, the , Pacific terminus of the
Tehuantepee National railroad.
; The secret treaty related chiefly to
trade relations and opened the doors of
Japan to Mexico. It was of such a na
ture, however, according to report hero
that it could have been used as the
basis for a much stronger alliance. This
development was what was chiefly fear
ed by Uncle Sam, and is said to have
led to the decision on tbe part of this
government to act in forceful fashion.
