WASHINGTON, Mnrch Secretary Elaine was night about the correctness of the published report to effect that two United States delegates to tha Pan-Ameri- can congress were, in the name of the secre- tary and with his approval, to make a prop- osition of absolute reciprocity to the repre- sentatives of tbe South American countries. The secretary read the published dispatch carefully and with evident interest, but pos- itively declined to make any comments, and would not permit himself either to admit or deny tbe truth of the statements it con- fined. It was learned, however, that a gentleman who is supposed to be well posted as to what is going on in the conference, that Mr. Flint and Mr. Coolidge, two of the delegates from the United States, have been and are still in consultation with some of the foreign dele- gates with reference to the subject above stated, but whether they are acting upon their own responsibility or under the tions of the secretary of state could not be ascertained. The proposition is said to in- volve the currender by the United States of the duties upon sugar and carpet wools im- ported from the countries of Central and South'America in exchange for similar con- cessions from the governments of these coun- tries as to merchandise imported from the United States, including all farm products, reflned petroleum, lumber, agricultural im- plements and machinery, and some other articles. Itismwerted thnt such ao of.conowwions would increase- the exports from the United States to South America from fifty to Riity millions of dollars a year! He Shot the Frlest Three Times.

He fired two more shots, both of which took effect in Father Lnnagban'g right leg above the knee. The sexton then took to the woods, but WSB soon Captured and taken to Towson jail. Father Lnnn- ghan's Injuries are painful but not serious. MacNiehols says the priest treated him badly and frequently cuffed and kicked him The priest took MacNichols out of an year ago.
