Lauf, imperial German consul for Can- ada, and Hon. W. S. Fielding, minister of finance. This agreement evidently brings tc an end the unfortunate dif- ference between the two countries which arose in 1S99 and has contin- ued until the present time. The German government concedes to articles, the product of the inanu facture of Canada, enumerated In the schedule of agreement' upon their 1m portation Into Germany, on or after March 1st next, the conventional or minimum tariff rate of duty.

The agreement means that a surtax Imposed by each country on the other's goods has been removed, and that trade conditions ex- isting before 1903 have been restored. The-schedule of the new tariff in- cludes among others the following: Canadian products to be admitted into Germany at conventional tariff rates: Wheat and speltz, barley, oats, red clover seed, white clover seed, and other clover seed, grass seeds of all kinds; horses, horned cattle {live sheep (live --meat, excluding bacon, greases and grease- like fat (hogs, lard, goose grease, beef marrow, oleomargarine and other analogous fats) meal baked or roast- ed, or not; meal of grain, excepting oats, meal of malt (with, the exception of baked or roasted malt meal or rice or pulse.

The Last Call I We daren't quote prices now REMEMBER, ON SATURDAY WE SAY FAREWELL trade which should be to the advantage of both countries is regarded, by many manu- acturers and importers as a certain outcome of the new commercial ar- rangement. This is claimed by-those who favor the proposed agreement that the immediate result will be the re-establishment of 'the old weekly steamship service, between Hamburg ind Montreal. This was for years maintained by the Hamburg Irae, 7000 ton vessels until crowded out by the surtax. From other quarters however come ooinions which do not regard the change in any wholesale delight. Was it a moment to make such reconcilia- tion with Germany is demanded, Is therfc not a prospect that in the near future the British government will be prepared to give Canada such advan- tages in the way of tariff as "would lead to as great or greater commer- cial openings than offered by the Ger- man agreement, had not Canada fore- stalled this in such a way as to pre- vent such a -happy consummation? Manufacturers, especially of such lines as jewelry, steel machinery .and are somewhat indignant. To many of them the introduction of German manufacturers under the low tariff comes is a heavy blow. the country were to be represented at the exhibition, which they claimed had the sanction of the French gov- ernment. They told manufacturers that' gold medals and diplomas were to be awarded to the best exhibits sent. Winners of diplomas would be re- quired to pay a fee of fifty dollars, and7 of gold medals As the re- sult of their canvass it is claimed that they secured about fifty exhibits which were taken by them to New York city. A few weeks after this the same men appeared -here bringing with them many gold medals and diplo- mas and they collected on them. So far as known no one that .sent an ex- uibit failed to secure either a medal or a diploma. The two men collected aoout in Rochester. Some of the manufacturers became suspicious and Chief Quigley cabled the men in and had a talk with them. They jhowed him credentials which purported to show that there is such an exhibition in Lyons and that it is maintained the year round. Chief Quigley sent a letter to Secretary of State Knox asking him to secure in- formation in regard to the exhibit from the United States Consul at Ly- ons. An answer to his letter, has not been received by him. It is thought that the diplomas and medals were made up in New York city. doesn't lOov the wick to ID point where it CAN smoke, yet perm to a strong flame that sheds a steady, stowing beat without a wfaiaT of smoke.
