COLUMBUS, O., Feb. ap- ical of President Taft to farmers in }ehalf of the Canadian reciprocity agreement fell upon deaf ears here. The president was cordially received and respectfully heard at the Nation- al Corn show but before he left the city some 300 farmers adopted a reso- lution condemning the agreement and predicting that it would injure the farmers. The president in his speech declared the fear of reduced farmland values was unfounded and that the American farmer would not bp injured by the advantage to the Canadian farmer. In a mass of statistics, special stress was laid on Canada's inability to corn- corn production because' of CAPE HAYTIEN, Feb. eral P.hjmpiimvt. and General Mich- _. ael fshort season- There was evi. were both captured and at; wora1 of the declaration, once executed, according to messages I The President, in closing, said: "Let received here today.

STAR-JOURNAL BUREAU, Dispatch Building. COLUMBUS, 0., Feb. Vining's first attempt to make 'the house work on Friday can hardly be said to have proved a shining success yesterday. He managed to muster 97 members present, but doubtless the presence of President Taft in Colum- bus had the eftect ot Keeping many here who otherwise would have gone to their homes. But even with that large number present members having bills on the calendar were unwilling to let them go to a One member, Mr. Calvey of Cleve- land, suffered from the rule that an author of a bill who is not present when his bill is reached for third read- ing will be punished by having the bill sent to the foot of'the calendar and as the result Calvey's street car vesti- bule bill now occupies that unenviable position. Only a quisk move by Price Russell, the democratic leader, to ad- journ, which carried, saved another bill by the same author from the same fate. That was his full freight crew 11 which fallowed on the calendar. The first lobby cry from. tji> floor of the house was morn- ing. Fellinger of Cuyahoga made it. He protested to the speaker against permitting lobbyists to call members Erom their seats while the house was in session His complaint was direct- ed principally to James A. Rice, of Canton, one of the speakers for the Irys at the Dean bill hearing, who was n the hall, hut also had reference to lobbyists for the county officers' asso- elation who were opposing the sage of the Leathers bill restricting :he salaries of county commissioners, which was on the calendar for third reading. The compensation of commission- ers is based on the grand duplicates of .the counties and as the grand dupli cates are being enormously increased under the full valuation of real estate and the low tax rate the salaries of commissioners will be doubled, trebled or Quadrupled if the law stands as it s. Mr. Leathers' bill limits the salar- es to what the commissioners were laid in 1910. On motion of the mem- >er from Madison, Mr. Jenkins, the bill was recommitted to the fees and salaries committee. i Speaker Vining paid no attention to he lobby complaint of Mr. Fellinger ERIE, Pa Feb announce- ment that no bcdies were taken from the Scott mausoleum here, all having been found, has not in any way clear- ed up the mystery of the despoiling oJ the tomb. That the breaking into the mausoleum and tampering with the caskets was tne work of hired ghouls in the employ of a man of considerable wealth and some posi- tion, is the latest thecry of the detec- tives employed by the Scott family. Members of the family and the de- tectives gave out the word that no body is missing Despite this, infoi- mation credited bv the Ene police is that the body ot Mi s. William L. Scott, nf the cnginal head of the fam- ily and builder o' mausmeum, has been stolen and that this fact is kept by the detectives. This infor- "police from two down the arms for permitting persons to pass n and out while a call of the house in progress. On both sides of he legislature the rule against lobbj- sts has been ignored at his session and the lobbyists are get- ing pretty bold again. The Dean bill will come from the lommittee with recommendation fo, confidential sources. One is the state- ment of a man who is represented to have had sufficient influence to pass the police guard who have guarded the mausoleum siuce it was closed by members of the family boon after the robbery was The theory for the robbery of the mausoleum on which the Peikins de- tective agency is at work is that the ghouls planned to carry off the bones of William L. Scott, millionahe rail- road man, which have been in the mausoleum twenty years, and hold them for ransom. They believe that the crjpts containing bodies of the other members of tbe family were opened in a search for toe bones of Scott and that they were kept from completing their task bj- lack, and t Scott crypt. F. of Plttsburg and F. C. Schindle of New York, who head the Burns agancj here, announce as their theory that the motive for the desecration of the mausoleum was a search for jewels supposed to have been buried with the bodies of Mrs McCullom or Mrs Scott. In sup- port of this theorj they point to the fact that the caskets of the two wo- were tho only ones opened. Crjpts containing the other bodies were broken open and the name plates hooked out with a jimmy or other in- struments In such each case as soon as the name plate revealed that the casket contained the bones of a man the work on that crypt ended. Eveij circumstance within the mau- soleum points to the certainty that the ghouls were searching for some spec- ial casket or caskets. WHAT WAS MYSTERIOUS MOTIVE OF DESPOILERS nrflni T D!

It ia the belief of most business men and others viho talked of the matter that it will be possible to secure relief and equity through this pro- ceeding. Whether or not Auditor Deist's suggestion of a horizontal reduction of ten per cent m valuations will be fol- -tewed, ont that this would mike some values too low and give relief where none is ask- ed, while the inequalities would sttll exist. On the other hand" it is urged that such a general reduction conhl be made and the inequalities adjust- ed afterward, the review board reduc- ing the figures vvheie they would still remain too high, and adding to the low valuations. Oue business man secured from the records at the couit house the figures applying to property of members qt the board of review and found that in the case of each member, the tax- es to be paid under a one per cent limit, and at the new high valuation, will be somewhat lower than the tax- es now being paid. He argued tfcfe- if every property owner could say'as much there could be no objection to the high valuations. The' complaint is that many property owners find their valuations so enormously In- creased as to add considerable to Uwfr taxes. It resolves itself back to tip same tbe yalnattons have, in hundreds of made much higher than the actual cash or market value. The figures show that Dan Knui, of the review board, has been paying 50 taxes on his residence on Co- lumbus avenue and under tie new valuation, will pay at a one per cent limit, 29. an increase of.
