Taft Sends Agreement With
Canada to Congress and
Asks Action.
t.umtx-r. Wood Iolp and Paper Put
on IVr- 1.1st by Itolh Cop n trie
and Large Reductions Mad
on Other Commodities.
WASHINGTON. Jan. SC. Within loss
than ton months after the Initiation by
iTaaidant Tall of negotiations with the
Tanadian Government, there was laid
imuKaneouMy before the American
Conirress and the Canadian Parliament
today a reciprocity arranKement. which.
If apf-rorej. will do much. In the
opinion of the neftotlatora. to enlarge
trade between tn two countries.
The arrannementa do not take the
form of a treaty, and considerable time
will be eared In the consummation of
the agreement, which can be made ef-fM-Mre
by a simple majority rote In
rach of the two Legislatures.
Cost of Living Iledorrd.
The animating purpose of Secretary
Knox appears to have been to procure
a reduction of the "high cost of living;"
by greatly enlarging the free list, so
fir as It relates to foodstuffs coming
trom Canada.
On the other hand, he procured a not
able abatement of duties on a number
of American products consumed In Can
ada. Prominent among these Is bitum
inous coal, which Is now exported to
i ana-la to the value of several million
dollars annually. There Is also a much
better cpenlnjc for American farm ma
chinery and Implements. No less than
M per cent of the Canadian goods im
ported Into the Cnlted States will bene
it by considerable reduction of duties.
I. u rubor Admitted Free.
Both countries put lumber on the
fre list.
The intention of the commissioners

the existing tariff acts in the United

sharp work to accomplish this In the
brief time remaining In the present
session of Congress.

Xtr. Taft holds that a commer-lal
sgreement with Canada. "Uy which we
shall have direct acves to her gnat

obstructing or prohibitory tariff Is lot
a violation of the protective principle,
a has been authoritatively n

aetween our commercial treatment of

Tbe President aaye that the Canadians
"soon must declJe whether they are to

Handwriting Expert Explains
in Turnbull Trial.
Kytke Says Forjrery of All Purported
Epistles of Woman Not Possible.
. Woman Can't Recall Receiv
ing Money From Pope.
LOS ANGELKS. Jan. 26 Two wit
nesses. Theodore Kytka, a handwriting
expert, and Mrs. Lillian Ashley Turn
bull, occupied the stand today In the
contest of Miss Featrlce Anita Baldwin
Turnbull for a daughter's share In the
estate of "Lucky" Baldwin.
Kytka ass given Into the hand Of the
plaintiff's attorneys for cross-examination.
He gave an Interesting exposition
of the best, means to commit forgeries,
which, contrary to common belief, 's not
by diligently copying anotner s nana-
writlrtg. but by turning a sample of It
upside down and then simply drawing It,
as one would any other object.
Kvtka declared that even an expert
could not forge all of the letters alleged
to have been written by Mrs. Turnbull.
The defense recalled Mrs. Turnbull to
the stand for further cross-examination.
A series of letters said to have been
itten to her bv William A. Reddln, a
New Tork lawyer In the employ of
Colonel Albert Pope, of Boston, was read
to her. They contained reference!, to
money which waa sent to her by Pope
through Reddln. and one referred to' $400
which she Is alleged to have received af
ter she thought she waa Mrs. Baldwin.
This amount was sent to purcnase pass
age to Australia.
She could not remember having re
ceived the letters and declared that any
money she received alter her alleged
contract marriage was returned to Pope,
as she believed herself Mrs. Baldwin and
could not accept any further sums from
tho Boston millionaire.
The Countr Recorder's book then were
resorted to In order to show the trafwfer
to Mrs. Turnbull on November 24, 1893,
of Pasadena tiroperty valued at $20u0,
hlch Is alleged to have been bought by
Colonel Pope. The marriage with Bald
win. Mrs. Turnbull asserts, occurred
March J. 1S93.
