WASHINGTON, Feb. 0.—The President late Thursday afternoon issued the following proclamation: "By tho President of the United States of America—A proclamation: "WHEREAS, Pursuant to section 3, not of Con- freaa, approved October 1, 1890, entitled 'An Act to Reduce the Revenue and Equalize Duties on Imports uncl for Other Purposes,' the Secretary of State of tho United States of America communicated to the United States of Brazil the action of the Congress of the United Btatos of America with a view to secure reciprocal trade In declaring the articles enumerated in said section 3—to wit, sugars, molasses, coffee and hides, to be exempt from duty upon their Importation Into the United States of America; and "WHEREAS, Tho Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of Brazil at Washington has communicated to the Secretary of State the fact that, In duo reciprocity and for consideration of the admission into the United States of America free of all duty of the articles enumerated In section 3 of said act, the Government of Brazil has, by legal enactment, authorized tho admission from and after April 1,1891, Into all the established ports of entry of Brazil, free of all duty, whether National, State or municipal, of the articles of merchandise named in the following schedule, provided that tho same be the product and manufacture of the United States of America. "Schedule of articles to be admitted free Into Brazil: Wheat, wheat flour, corn or maize and the manufacture thereof, including cornmeal and starch; rye, rye flour, buckwheat, buckwheat flour and barley; potatoes, beans and peas; hay and oats; pork, salted, including pickled pork and bacon, except hams; flsh, salted, dried or pickled; cottonseed oil; coiil, anthracite and bituminous: resin, tar, pitch and turpentine; agricultural tools, Implements and machinery: mining and mechanical tools, implements and machinery, including stationary and portable engines and all machinery foi manufacturing and industrial purposes, except sewing machines; instruments and books for the arts and sciences; railway-construction material and equipment. "And that the Government of Brazil has by legal enactment further authorized the admission into all the established ports of entry of Brazil, with a reduction of 85 per cent, of the duty designated on tho respective article in tho tariff now in force or which may hereafter be adopted in the United States of Brazil, whether National. State or municipal, of the articles or merchandise named In the following schedule, providing that the same be tho product or man ufucture of the United States of America: Lard and substitutes therefor, bacon, hams, butter and cheese, canned and preserved meets, fish, fruits and vegetables; manufactures of cotton, Including cotton clothing; manufactures of iron and steel, single or mixed, not included in the foregoing schedule; leather and tho manufactures thereof, except boots and shoes; lumber, timber and the manufactures of wood, including cooperage, furniture of all kinds, wagons, carts and carriages; manufactures of rubber. "And that the Government of Brazil has further provided that tho laws and regulations, adopted to protect its revenue and prevent fraud in tho declarations and proof that the articles named in the foregoing schedules are the product or manufacture of the United States of America, shall place no undue restrictions on the importer or impose any additional charges or fees therefor on the articles imported; and, "WHEUEAS, The Secretary of State has by my direction given assurance to tho Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of Brazil at Washington that this action of the Government of Brazil in granting exemption of duties to the products and manufactures of the United States of America is accepted as a due reciprocity for the action of Congress as set forth in sections of said act. Now. therefore, be it known, that I, Benjamin Harrison, President of the United States of America, have, caused the above-stated modifications of the tariff law of Brazil to bo made public for the information of the citizens of the United States of America. "In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed. "Done at the city of AVashington, this fifth day of February, one thousand eight hundred and ninety one, and of the independence of the United States of America the one hundred and fifteenth. BENJAMIN HARRISON. "By the President: ••JAMES G. BLAINE, Secretary of State." The first of a series of letters which passed between Secretary Blaine and the Brazilian Minister upon the subject of reciprocity was written by Mr. Blaine and was dated November 3, 1890. In it the Secretary of State expresses to Senor Mendonca the hope that the Government of Brazil will meet the Government of the United States in a spirit of sincere friendship in its desire for such trade relations with that country as shall be reciprocally equal, and that it may be the happy fortune of Senor Mendonca and himself to be instrumental in establishing 1 commercial relations between the two Republics on a permanent basis of reciprocity profitable to both. In his reply, dated January 31, 1891, Senor Mendonca informed Mr. Blaine that the United States of Brazil is animated by a desire to strengthen and perpetuate the friendly relations which happily exist between it and the United States of America and to establish a basis of reciprocity and equality. Under the provisions of the agreement Brazil reduces her import charges vipon American products of the farm, factory and mine to the extent of about £5,000,000 annually, which is as far as she could go in the present state of her finances. The present annual importation of sugar from Brazil is about liia.OOO tons, and it is believed that under the stimulus which this reciprocity will give she will this year increase her sugar shipments to 200,000 tons, next year to 500,000 tons, and that in five years Brazil will be able to furnish all the sugar required in the United States. Some idea of the far-reaching importance of this reciprocal agreement may be gathered from the estimates which have been made of the increased trade which .vill result. At present the United States pays to Brazil annually about SW5,000,000, while it only receives §8,000,000 in return. It is expected that in three years Brazil will pay the United States in return for our manufactures and products at least 8125,000,000, which amount vyill be distributed through every section of the country.

No one doubts that Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy really cures Catarrh, whether the disease be recent or of long standing, because the makers of it clinch their faith in it with a $500 guarantee, which isn't a mere newspaper guarantee, but "on call" in a moment. That moment is when you prove that its makers can't cure you. The reason for their (aith is this: Dr. Sage's remedy has proved itself the right cure for ninety-nine out of one hundred cases of Catarrh in the Head, and the World's Dispensary Medical Association can afford to take the risk of your being the one hundredth. The only question is—are you willing to make the test, if the makers are willing to take the risk? ; If so, the rest is easy. You pay your druggist 50 cents and the trial begins. If you're wanting the $500 you'll get something better— a cure/ A Mooting of Delegates from Western States to Ue Called.
