the Colombian and Nlcaraguan treaties
will be pending for a long time to

has been antagonised by the President,
and has shown a disposition to resist
those measures which the Administra

from the beginning whether the Presi

force the ratification of the Colom

Senators, even In the previous session
when the President was strongest, de
clared their .opposition to that agree

Mr. Taft declared that In his opinion
Japan had no desire to take the Phil

itself as an Annual Clearance, and that is why right at the start we cut prices fearlessly, for there can be no question that what is worth
doing at all is worth doing with might and main. Quick and decided action is called for at this eventful period in our business year, and
our. energies and resources have been taxed to the utmost to assure in advance that the clearance would be radical, absolute and showing
