VOL. XXXVIII. NO. 154. MISSOULA, MONTANA, FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 6, 1911. PRICH FIVB Cl "OLD FOLKS"" HEAR TAFT SPEAK PRESIDENT ADDRESSES MEETING OF PIONEERS WHO SETTLED STATE OF UTAH. TREATIES ARE DISCUSSED Guest of Salt Lake Reproves President of Young Men's Republican Club for Making Bitterly-Partisan Speeoh of Introduction-Says He's There as "President of the United States." Salt Lake ('lty, Oct. 3.-President Taft today politely, but firmly, re proved the president of the Young M'.n'a Republican league of Utah, ,reud W. Price, when the latter in In, troducing himn to an immense crowd ait tile state fair, made a bitterly-par t(lan speech. It was as the prospective repub)llcan candidate for the presidency In 1912 that Mr. Price presented Mr. Taft and after predicting that he would be "triumphantly elected," and that November next year would find "the democracy of Utah in its cus toinury place, deep down In the slough of despond," he Introduced the chief magistrate of the nation us "William Howard Taft of Ohio." "I am here," saId the president, em phasizimng each word siagnificantly, "as pr'sident of the United States." There was a lusty cheer from the crowd, whicih was followed by a laugh when Mr. Taft humorously closed the Incident by saying: "My friend, the president of the Young Men's 1Republican league, is probably a better republican than he is a prophet." Tl'he president then launched Into a discussion of his tariff vetoes, repeat Ing the arguments and explanations he has made at other points during the trip. Tonight Mr. Taft attended a banquet of the Commercial club prior to leaving for Pocatcllo, Idaho. shortly before midnight. At the banquet he spoke briefly on the trust question and the Telation of government to business, following the lines laid down in his Detroit and Waterloo speeches. The presldent spent the entire day in Salt Lake 'lity. He promised to pay a brief visit to Ogden on his re turn from the Pacific coast, October 18. At the Mormon tabernacle, where he preached a sermon two years ago, the president today greeted the "old folks" of Utah, who were being given their semi-annual entertainment. They came from all parts of the state and ranged in age from 70 to more than 90. When Bishop Nlbley called for those who had crossed the plains before the advent of the railroad, to rise, more than 1,000 of the gray-bearded men and wrinkled women, many of the latter still garbed in the fashions of 50 years ago, slowly stood up while the great audience in the tabernacle loudly cheered. The picture was an unusual and impressive one, and President Taft joined enthusiastically In the ap plause. Mr. Taft spoke to the "old folks" and the several thousand others who filled the big structure, on the subject of the peace treaties with Great Britain and France. This speech is being received everywhere with more enthusiasm than any of the other subjects discussed by the presi dent. The audience at the fair grounds today, a big outdoor gathering, listened attentively to his detailed ex planation of the tariff bills he vetoed and applauded him as he closed. Mr. Taft invariably thanks his "tariff au diences" for their patience in listen Ing to a "dry, uninteresting and tedi ous subject." Class Ad History CXXXI.--SALESMANSHIP. 4 As has been remarked before, there is somebody, always, who wants to buy what you have to sell, no matter what it is. The only obstacle in the way of - making the sale is the difficulty of finding the man. The Missoulian class ad is the best means of locating him; it's best because it's surest and cheapest. Here's a bit of proof: FOR PALE-AMERICUS CIDER MILL. Phone 7405. Now, it isn't everybody who wants to buy a cider mill. If you had one to sell, you wouldn't know where to go to find a buyer. This advertiser didn't know where to go, but he did know that a Missoulian class ad would locate the man he was seeking. It took five days for the ad to do it. But the cider mill was sold on the fifth day. It cost 35 cents--easy commis sion. If you are out of work and want a job, The Mis soullan 'will print your ad for nothing. STEPHENSON HAD OFTEN KICKED WISCONSIN SENATOR'S CAMPAIGN MANAGER SAYS THE BOSS REMONSTRATED. TOO MUCH MONEY SPENT t Thirty Thousand Dollars for Cigars 0 and Beer Expended to Seoure Nom I ination at Primary-Chairman Hey burn of Committee Rules That Bur den of Proof Rests on the Aooused. t hMl!waukee, Oct. 8.-When Unilted . States Senator Isanu Stephenson found that his expenses for nomination at the primaries In 1908 were running so high that the Item for beer and I cigars alone amounted to $30,000, and the aggregate was fast approaching the final total of $107,793, he re monstrated and told his campaign managers: e "I want to win the nomination, but I don't want to buy it."

McGovern, now governor of WIs e consin, who spent $11,063, were making a hard fight, their expenses finally: e aggregating 883,268. This, together with Senator Stephenson's expenses, ° made a total for the republican sbna torlal campaign that year of $191,081. a it was testified by E. A. Edmonds, e Mr. Stephenson's campaign manager, that the senator usually lasded checks for more money when told of the Sactivities of his opponents. e Sometimes Provoked. e "He pometlmes was provoked that so !, much money was being spent, and aft er prefacing his remarks with his own characteristic language, he mould say, y 'I want to win the nomination, but I o don't want to buy It.' "Then he would supply whatever r funds were needed," was the testimony e of Edmonds. ' "In a report made by a previous dlegrl'ative Investigatlng committee, n which might be considered not un y frlendly to Mr. Stephenson, the state ment is made that $30.000 was spent for cigars and beer. Do you know If e that Item Is correct?" Fenator George e Sutherland asked. 'e "I do not," the witness replied. "I d suppose the committee which estt r mated that the various Items for beer a and calars aggregated $30,000 might Lt have been considered not unfriendly to Mr. Stephenson." t No Editorial Corruption Fund. RSenator Stephenson's vote, It prevl d ously had been shown, was 52,000, s some of the voters being In prohibl e tion territory. h Edmonds denied that the fund was is used to purchase corruptly editorial :e support In various Wisconsin newspa Ie pers, or that money had been paid to I- anyone except for legitimate campaign Ir purposes. g, Senator Heyburn announced that c- where charges of the uplawful use of d money officially had been made In con r. nection with campaign expenses of I- which no detailed account was ren 1- dered, the presumption was that the i- money was wrongfully used and the burden of proof was on the accused.

New York, )Oct. ',.--Thendor Roose.. \'It hua an article on "How tile Unltl' Ntalts acqulired the right to dig the P(anama Canal" In thel current numbierl of the ()utlook.

Mr. Roosevelt says that hil messages y to congrens set forth in full and In I1 detail every essential fact connllected with the various phases of the acqulsi tion of the Panama canal. He adds: " The simple fact was that when the Interest of the Amlnercan pteolle Imn perutively demandedil that that action should be done, and I had the power to do it. I did it, unllless It was specfic ally prohlblted by law, instead of tim idly refusinllg to do It unless I could - find sonme provIsion of law which ren dered It ImperatIve that I should do It. LI In other words, I gave (lie benefit of the doubt to thie people of the United States and not to any group of ban - dts, foreign or domlestlc, whose intlr I. nets happened to be adverse to tholse n of the people of the United States. Lesson From History. r "ii my Judgment hIntory hjad taught tithe lesson that the presidelnt has very great powers If he choo-.s to exercise those powers, but that. If he Is a tImid or seftish man, afraid of-respunsibilty and afraid of risks. he can, of course, manufacture Ingenious excuses for failure to exerclse them. "At a great crslis In American his 'ory Mr. Buchanan had shown himself to belong to the latter type of presl dent; Mr. Lincoln had represented the other type, the type which gave the Speople the benefit of the doubt which was not afraid to take responslbllity. which used In large fashion for the good of the people, the great powers of a great office. "In October and November, 1903, events occurred on the Isthmus of Panama which enabled me, and which made it my highest duty to the people of the United States, to carry out the provlsions of the law of congress. I did carry them out and the canal is now being built because of what I thus l.d. It li also perfectly true that, If I had wlhed to shirk my responsibility. If I had been afraid of doing my duty, I could have pursued a course which would have been technically defensl ble, which would have prevented crltl clvm of the kind that has been made -,nd would have left the United States no nearer building the canal at this moment than It had been for the pre ceding half century. If I had ob served aw judicial inactivity about what was going on at the Isthmus,. had let things take their course and had then submitted an elaborate re port thereon to congressl, I would have furnished the opportunity fort much imasterly debate In congress, a which would inow be going oin and thel le canal would still be 50 years in the f. uture. ly Interests of the People. re "The Interests of the American peo to ple demanded that I should act just .n exactly ac I did act-and I wouldt hlave. ag taken the action I actually did ttake y. even though I had been certain that to ie (Continued on Page SBlx) CONDEMNED CONVICTS ENJOY PLAY IN SAN QUENTIN PRISON Ran Quentin, Cal., . et. 5.--In the, literal shadow of the death cell, a r.t, ularly-organizeid theatrical corn pas ty presented its standard phay todlay to 1,14. prisonlers of the Sn Q.L en'fltli penitentiary.

The pilot balloon, Pennsyl vania I, and the America IU had trou blhie cledring the ground, but by dump Ing a little sand, both were soon able to gain a good altitude. The Berlin I did not rise well until after it had cleared the aviation field and Its drag rope raked two or three spectators off the circus seats, but none was seriously injured and the h bag was not long in rising to a height of 600 feet. e With the exception of the last two hags to sall, the Kansas City II and the Topeka II, all of the balloons went almost due north. The Kansas City and Topeka were carried northwest. It was almost dark when the last two balloons sailed. An immense crowd saw the start. I about 25,000 being on the grounds. For a time today it looked as it the a Berlin would not sarl, owing to the failure of Its pilot to arrive. He had not reached here when the gas was turned into the bags, hut so certain h was his aide, J. O. Dunker, that the aeronaut, Lieutenant Leopold Vogt, would be here, that his ballqdi, was e filled.
