THE RAGTIME ARGUMENT.
Help I This argument about the
rlglnator of ragtlmo Is becoming
too strenuous for us. Charloa Cor
win of Cincinnati writes to state that
nobody originated syncopated popu
lar music that It Jut grow, lie
docs admit, however, that lien Har
ney probably perfected IL Kdward
R. Winn, who tnacbcji ragtlmo piano
tlaylng, Ja inclined to think that we'd
bo in the right If wo guva Mr. Har
ney tho. championship belt and tho
bronia modal. He thinks Ned Way
burn's claim to tho honor Is doubtful.
Tho Wuyburn song "Hynoopated
Sandy," Mr. Winn thinks, is no proof
of any ability on be part of Mr.
Waybum to write ragtime music, bo
cause, as he remembers It. Ned wrote
merely tho words and Uoorgo A.
Nichols the music. Therefore, says
Mr. Winn, how can anybody aay Mr.
Waybura originated ragtlmo with
tali "Sandy" song? Mr. Wlnn'a ar
aramrnt sounds rcuaonablo enough
and ha In undoubtedly a very nice
fellow, but Just the same, tho cham
pionship beK and tho medal might
ba great sources of comfort to Mr.
.Wayburn at this time.
Edgar Pretorious of HrooVlyn,
Siernly queries us as follows:
