Exclusively optcah MR, TAFT PROTESTS Says He Was Misrepresented as to Tariff Views. Did Not Say That Exciting Tarifl Schedules Were Responsible Foi Present Business Depression Did Say That It Is of the Highest Im portance That Work of Revising, Should Be Executed With All Pos sible Dispatch Favors Tariff Com mission. President-elect Taft made a vigor ous protest against what he said was an absolute misrepresentation In cer tain New York newspapers as to what he had .said recently In answering questions regarding tariff revision. He hud stated, he said, that the pres ent business depression was un doubtedly duo In a large measure to the fact that the to : iff Is to be re vised at an extra sosslon of congress to meet March 15; that it was of the highest Importance that this work of revision should not be delayed but ex ecuted v.'Ith all possible diligence. Mr. Taft also said he favored the Idea of a permanent tariff commis sion, the plan for which should be worked out with deliberation, the du ties of such a commission to be to make n careful study of the operation of the proposed new tariff law, to the end that suggestions be made In 'he future which would tend to place the whole question of the tariff on a more certain and scientific basis. Upon this statement Mr. Taft was made to any that the present tariff schedules wero responsible for the present business depression, and that when they were revised their own par ents would not know them, all of which waa nmrdlflod at length and made positive by appearing to be a Vigorous nnd enthusiastic statement. Mr. Tuft was pnrtlcularly perturbed over what he called a misrepresenta tion, particularly in view of the weight which Is now given his words because of his ofilrlal position. He hud, he de clared, changed his position In no way and held the siime views he had pulv llcly announced during and since the campaign. TAFT CENTER OF ATTENTION But Interest Will Follow Two Other Conspicuous Public Men. All other events of the week will hi overshadowed by the inauguration at Washington of William H.

Hut while Mr. Taft Is the cen tral figure of Imposing ceremotiles on Thursday a considerable degree of un official Interest must follow on that day the movements of two other men who long have challenged public at tention and admiration. In the hour that President Taft traces the hall that will bring the In augural program to a brilliant close, Mr. Roosevelt, relieved of the burdens of state, will be surrounded by his neighbois of Oyster Ray; and Mr. Bryan. gue.jt of honor at a dollar din ner In Pittsburg will reiterate, It is believed, the convictions upon which he contested the presidency. If he Is permitted tc f-.illow the plans chosen, Mi. Roosevelt will go to New York Inte Thursday and thence at once to Oyster Bay, where a home coming demonstration his been ar ranged th.it Is likely to eclipse fovmer welcomes extended him both as presi dent and eitUeu.

Party organization and tho respon nihility of political parties to the peo pie was the keynote of the address ol Mr. Root nt tbe dinner of the Albanj county Republican organization. "I have no sympathy, and perhaps too little patience,' he said, "wltt those who think, or think they think that a republican government can bt continued and administered withou' party organization. Organization will always overcome disorganization. Mr. Root pointed out that there it a process going on in the country no to which political organizations should give heed. "I think," he said, "thai there has ben for some time past at Indication, that there have been man: Indication? of a widespread feeling among the people of the United States that the political organizations are nol truly representative of them." Mr. Root Raid he did not intend tc discuss any question of primary nomi nations or whether nominations should be made by political committees with a referendum or any question as tc nominations by committees. "Every man who swerves from the high duty of truly representing the p-aople by whom he Is constituted an officer." said Mr. Root, "a member ol any body, any convention, any com mittee, which has political power, who swerves from the straight line of true representation. Is doing an injury, and perhaps a fatal Injury, to his organiza tion." STEAMING TROPHY Won by Battleship Ohio; Trouble Over a Mock Marriage. The battleship Ohio sailed Monday from Fortress Monroe for New York winner of the "steaming trophy for the voyage around the world." The announcement of the award was made from the flagship Connecti cut and was a splendid tribute to tho engine room staff of the winning ship. The contest was one of economy in coal and water consumption for the entire trip. The Ohio is one of the older ships of the fleet and her steaming record Is regarded as all the more notable by thnt fact. Naval circles at Fortress Monroe had a flutter fof excitement when they learned of a mock marriage In the par lors of the Chamberlain hotel in which Midshipman Robert S. Young, Jr., ot the armored cruiser North Caro lina and Mls Margaret Connell, daugh ter of A. J. Connell of Scranton, Pa., were supimsed to be the principals. The entire ceremony was a joke among young people at a party. The young people were deeply chag rined to find a se.lous announcement In Norfolk and Newport News papers of the supposed wedding. Captain Marshall directed the one who sent out the story to go at once to the news paper odlces and make a personal re traction. SHOT DEAD BY BURGLAR Two Girls Were Alone When Man De manded Money.

GOOD PHYSICAL CONDITION Mr. Taft's Universal Good Humor and Freedom From Worry. Washington, March 2. A rush of callers, interrupted for a long walk In the afternoon, and attendance atn'ght nt the special dinner given in his hon or by the "Taft Philippine expedi tion," brought President-elect Taft to within two days of his Inauguration with less serious demands on his time than he has experienced during any day since his landing from Panama at New Orleans. The apparent splendid physical con dition, the universal good humor nnd absence from worry and nervous strain ot Mr. Taft, makes a uniformly gratifying Impression on the many statesmen, politicians and friends who are received by him daily. His Jovial remark Is that "Ills Inaugural address Is prepared, his cabinet selected, the Inaugural committee is preparing all details for the ceremony on Thursday, and why should he feel otherwise than comfortable?"

Dixon All Possible Latitude in His Great Work EARLY VOTE ON LOCAL OPTION Republican Leaders Keep Pledge That Measure Shall Be Given Fair Pby. Not in Quarter Century Has Legis lative Body Worked So Harmonious ly and Intelligently. The state of Pennsylvania Is evi dently determined to go the full limit in providing Dr. Samuel G. Dixon, State Health Conimistioner, with the necessary Winds to do battle with tho great white plague. Dr. Dixon seen:. to have demonstrated that his meth od of treating tuberculosis victims is no longer an experiment. So far as his work is concerned he has, appa rently, "produced the goods," in the vernacular of the streets. Ever since he entered the state's service bo has been giving abundantly of his wonder ful energies and his accepted skill as a physician for the best Interests of the state. No employe of the common wealth has worked harder or with more intelligence than has Dr. Dixon. Though in receipt of only a compara tively small BHlary, he "burns the midnight oil" constantly, and he reg ularly brings to his work skill of th highest order. The Legislature some few years ago was slow In acceding to Dr. Dixon's demands for financial support in his work. For the first three years of his service Dr. Dixon was actually ham pered for funds with which to carry out his splendid system of work. La ter, however, he became better known, because of his works, nnd now the Legislature seems willing and anxious that he sliall be given all possible !-'.t itude in the important labor he lias undertaken. Notwithstanding the gracious sup port extended to Dr. Dixon, be Is not in favor of having the hospitals of the state hampered to the end that bis own particular work may be extended. He Is opposed, however, to having the general hospitals equipped so that tu bercular patients may be treated in them. Such a proposition does not ap peal to Dr. Dixon. Discussing the mut the recently Dr. ltlxon said: "Our department is in hearty sym pathy with every practical effort to re duce the fearful tribute which our peo ple are today paying to tuberculosis. We must not. however, in waging war against this disease do It at the ex pense of the tight we are also making against all communicable disease, which like typaoid fever causes so much death and suffering and pecu niary loss in Pennsylvania todayj. H therefore docs not seem a wise move to let tuberculosis Jeopardize In any way the work of our general hospitals throughout the state. Such would, 1 fear, he the result of the plan that has been proposed for such hospitals to admit tuberculosis patients on con dition of state aid. "The provision in this plan that sop a rate wards be equipped at our gen eral hospitals for this would not work out, for these cases can only be prop erly handled by especially equipped and entirely separate buildings, nnd this would necessitate an enormous ap propriation to all hospitals for tuber culosis buildings. Without such sepa ration the danger to other patients in the hospitals would he too great to consider for a minute." There Is an Impression that the Leg islature will do largely as Dr. Dixon suggests. The appropriation for the Department of Health will bo liberal and will lie given with the full con sciousness that the money voted to that particular department will bo spent for the best interest of the state, and that is a sitllii ient guarantee for the Legislature. The appropriations for the charities of the state the indi gent insane, the feebleminded and all the other wards for which the state has assumed responsibility, arc to be cared for first by the Legislature. This, it is believed, will take most if not all tho time of the session now rapidly drawing to a close, so that in what time remains between now and the 'date of final adjournment, April 15, only measures of real merit and pressing need will be taken up for consideration. Of rourse, the anti-saloon or local option bill will be given serious con sideration nnd that without much fur ther delay. The liquor people were di:; posrii to have that measure disposed of by this time, but the anti-saloon peoplo fought successfully for delay, and while there was no particular reason for granting them more time for prep aration the pledge of the Republican leaders of the stale thnt local option legislation should have absolutely fall play was redeemed to the very letter and the delay asked for by Represent ative Fair, who has charge of the local option measure, was granted through tbe personal efforts of the Speaker of tho House. If tbe local option people are strop enough to pass their bill it will bo passed, for it Is very evident that the leaders In the Legislature and tho state are not disposed to interfere in the matter. At last accounts Repre sentative Fair was contldent that his bill would be passvd finally, by t In House side lit least. The liquor peo ple, on the other hand, were just as confident tfcat Uic-y vrnH hava enough votes to defeat the bill. The Republi cans of tho state, as a p.irty and or ganization, have not taken sides and every member of the Legislature ha been encouraged to act for himself lu this particular matter. The House has passed finally tho McClain bill providing that 95 per cent of the personal property taxes shall be returned to the counties from w hich that tax was collected. The bill was a very popular one In the House. Two years ago, however. It was de feated on the Senate side and there is ground for the belief that it will again meet that same fate when It reaches the Senate this year. No Legislature within a quarter of a century has disposed of its work with more harmony and intelligence than has attended every move thus far made In the present session. There have been no scandals. There have been no charges against the Integrity of the membership or the management of the several important committees, and it is a marked feature that each individual member has been allowed tiro pleasure of exercising his ovn best Judgment, re?zrdless of whateve inlluence has been brought to bear in favor of any of the measures under consideration. The Republican leaders of the stat: have determined that there shall li no profligacy, no reckless or selfi-li legislation, yet it has been made plain that any economies practiced shall not extend Into the realm of stinginess. Only the best Interests of the state are being considered, and with this important object constantly in view It Is not probable that any freak legis lation will stand any show during the remaining days of the short but skill fully managed session.
