Canada Ready To Arrange Measures
Covering Tariff Duties On MutualI
Coast Products And Fish,
(B- Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, March 19. - The
cloak of official silence, which is
wrapped about anything official Wash-
ington is unprepared to discuss, was
thrown today over the shoulders of
Premier Mackenzie King's suggestion
for a reciprocity arrangement with the
United States.
Canada is ready to arrange a re-
ciprocal trade treaty to cover tariff
duties charged on mutual cost prod-,
acts and fish, the premier told the
Canadian parliament, and is also will-
ing to meet President Coolidge half-'
way in reducing certain duties with-
out awaiting Congressional sanction.)
But official Washington, the sceneI
of a historic battle over reciprocityt
during the past regime, today knewI
only what it had seen in the news-
papers about the Canadian premier's}
latest ainouncement.
There were a few, closely associated
with current matters, who said that1
under the law Mir. Coolidge could not
change the tariff merely for recipro-
cal purposes and that he had the
power only to. use the flexible pro-
Svisions of the tariff act to meet con-
petitive trade problems. In the main,i
however, official comment was held
to the brief statement that the gov-
ernment had not been approached on!
the subject.
The remarks of Mr. Mackenzie King
revived memories of a long interna-j
tional parliamentary uproar which
continued for some months in 19111
and which drew into conflict some of
the leading statesmen of America and
of the world.
President Taft threw the recipro-
city question into the lap of Con-
gress on Jan. 26, 1911, after havingf
labored late into the night with his
cabinet in preparing his message
which transmitted the Canadian-
American trade agreement. From that
time onward, the issue overshadowed
all others for months, bringing state
legislators, foreign parliaments,
statesmen the world over and the peo-
ple of Canada and America into aM
continuous round of debate.
Feeling on the question reached
such a pitch that at one time Glou-
cester fishermen half masted their
flags in opposition to a clause in thej
treaty putting Canadian fish on thej
free list. In Canada, there was talk
of modifying the use of the American

shal, a Democrat, to obtain posses-
sion of the ballots cast in four Penn-
sylvania counties in the Vare-Wilson
senatorial election last November.
Jerry South, a former clerk of the

was commissioned to proceed to Dela-
ware, Lackawanna, Luzerne and
Schuvlkill counties to make demands,
on officials there for the ballot boxes,'

ments which the committee holds to

South will leave for Pennsylvania,
next week, but in view of the question
raised as to the legal authority of the1
committee to proceed during the re-I
cess of Congress, he is expected to
encounter legal obstacles.
The unusual procedure of appoint-
ing a deputy-marshal was made
necessary by the refusal of David S.'
Barry, regulary elected marshal of)
the Senate, to proceed on orders of
the committe until he could have time
"to take advice on the subject."
Directed both verbally and in writ-
ing to carry out the committee's or-
ders and assured that the necessary
funds would be forthcoming. Barry, in
a letter to the committee, raised the)
question of the legality of the use
by him of money furnished through!
channels other than the official dis-
bursing officer of the Senate.
Senator Keyes, Republican, New
Hampshire, chairman of the Senate
audits committeee, previously had re-
fused to approve vouchers for the
Reed committee, on the grounds that
its status was in doubt, owing to the
failure of the Senate in the filibuster)
at the end of the session, to approve
a resolution specifically authorizing,
it to function during the recess of
The fund tendered to Barry today
by the committee was $1,000 the
amount the sergeant-at-arms had spe-
cified as necessary, and was advanced
from the personal resources of Sen-
ator Reed, Democrat, Missouri, thee
committee's chairman.
In announcing the action of the
committee in commissioning South,
Senator Reed said he and his associ-
ates did not mean to wait on "the
pleasure of the sergeant-at-arms of
the Senate."
"It is due to British influence and
control of the Reuter cable company
that America gets a distorted idea 'f
the situation in China," declared Paul
C. Meng, general secretary of the
Chinese Student Christian association'
last night in an interview. Because
I of a number of unequal treaties, Eng-
land has secured a dominance in
China that she is unwilling to re-,
linquish, and therefore does not want
the true facts to leak out, Mr. Meng
The Nationalist party is fighting
not against a nation but against these
unequal treaties, lie continued. It de-
sires nothing more than to make them
void, and to give China a chance to
delvelop her own resources, Mr. Meng
He. pointed out that Secretary of
Commerce Hoover has long advocated
a direct cable conmunication between
the United States and China, instead

of gettilg falsified accounts viaLon -
don, but due to British pressure the
project has never been seriously con-
sidered. If the United States would es-
tablish a cable servic3 and send im-
partial and unprejudiced journalists
to China, the Americans would soon
view her in a new light, Mr. Meng

Clippy [assesAway!
As Disease Causes
Use Of Chloroform
By Timothy Hay
Clippy is dead.
The shy and undemonstrative Scot-
tish terrier, who created such a furore
last fall when she strayed away from
the President's home and who had the
whole campus hunting day and night
for her until she finally wandered
home of her own accord, will never
more scamper across the campus.
For it was discovered yesterdayI
that Clippy had the rabies and there-
fore had to be chloroformed imme-
diately. Clarence E. Weaver, assistant
in the Pasteur Institute of the Mied-
ical school, diagnosed the case and
put her to death.
Not only was Clippy loved by mem-
bers of President Little's family, but!
the whole campus knew this little
black brindle dog, who was to be seen
romping over the campus on every
sunny day.
Clippy was a great favorite of the
President, and had been his playmate
during leisure hours ever since she)
came into his home when a puppy,
seven years ago. When notified over
long distance telephone last night,.
President Little, who is East on a
speaking tour, was much disturbed by
the news.
Clippy had been sick with distem-
per for three days, according to mem-
bers of the Little household, and when
a veterinary was called today, he ad-
vised tests for rabies. Weaver was
called, and he found that it was ra-
bies, which Clippy is believed to have
received from a dog which bit her
a few days ago, when she was out
walking with President Little.
Although Clippy alive providedj
amusement to the campus because of
the publicity following her running
away from home, in death she is re-
membered as a likable brindle terrier,
and as a joyful playmate of a Pres-
Attacking Cantonese Army Expected
To Reach Prize City Within
Two Or Three Days
(By Associated Press)
SHANGHAI, March 19.-By the col-
lapse of the Shantungese defense on
the Sunkiang front, the road to
Shanghai has been opened o the at-
tacking Cantonese army, and military
authorities here anticipate that they
may reach the prize city within a
couple of days. Their advance, how-
ever, may be delayed by adverse
weather conditions, such as have been
responsible for the delay of the Na-
tionalist operations for the capture of
Foochow, about 50 miles west of
The collapse of the northern line
at Sunkiang, which has been defended
by 7,000 of the army of Gen. Chang
Sun Chang, was brought about
through an out flanking movement
by the southern or Nationalist
forces. This maneuver rendered un-
tenable the northern position at
Minhang and farther eastward. The
northerners retreated without the
slightest attempthat resistance. Two
thousand of them had arrived in
Shanghai tonight.
The collapse, though not unexpect-
ed, as the northerners had been
heavily pressed on all fronts the past
week, was not looked for so quickly.
It had been generally believed the
Nationalist would eventually gain
control of Shanghai by some sort of
political bargaining.
Naturally there is some anxiety
over the possibility of clashes with

Shanghai, but the foreign communities
feel quite secure with nine battalions
of the British troops and artillery;
strung around the settlement, with
the forces of other nations within
call, and strong naval forces avail-
able in case of emergency.
British troops were ready tonight
to oppose any invasion of the inter-j
national settlement, whether by
northern or southern troops. In the
sections of the city under Chinese
control, the streets were deserted and
the houses closed. Here and there!
