HARMON UPHOLDS DIXON SENATORS (Continued from Page One.) people will be allowed to vote on the matter as a constitutional ammend ment a year from this fall, "The tax commission," predicted Mr. Harmon, "will be passed by the people if they can be made to realize what it actual ly is and how the present board of equalization has fallen down on their jobs to equalize taxes." Mr. Harmon Speaking on the tax question Mr. Harmcn told how some farmers in the senate worked with the Edwards ; people in defeating the effort made gave some instances of present tax : nequalities and showed why the big interests of the state, represented by he Edwards faction, wished to defeat a real lax commission measure. to have the present rate of taxation of farm property reduced from 30 per cent to 25 per cent. He showed thru out his talk that the Edwards people neglected no opportunity to defeat anything that Governor Dixon favor- j ed. Mr. Harmon spoke of the efforts made to cut down the appropriations for the state superintendent of schools $29,500. This would have done away with both the office help and the su perintendent's salary. As Mr. Har mon once filled this position, he knew whereof he spoke. In describing the efforts made to defeat the legislative program of the governor Mr. Harmon told of the lobbying that went on at the capital and said that some of the greatest lobbies in the history of the state were maintained thei'e this past win ter. He discussed the powerful third house" that worked against the oil tax and the tax commission and told how, in the matter of the Arthur scandal, the minority report of the senate investigating committee and the majority report of the house in vestigating committee both upheld the governor in the stand he took on the question. Senator Harmon also told of the free liquor and other inducements that were to be had for the asking in Helena during the closing days of the session.

COMMITTEE WORKING ON MILWAUKEE ROUTE (Continued from Page One.) the farmers will get the right of way for the proposed road. It is thought that the available tonnage will figure quite largely in inducing the Milwaukee to construct the proposed line. As it is bue a small portion of the Bozeman tonnage goes via the Milwaukee whereas with such a cut off to the main line that road would have a more even break for the business. The superintendent of this division of the Milwaukee, vhen approached on the matter, said that were the cut off built it might be entirely possible that the road would run at least a part of their through trains through Bozeman, de spite the fact that the distance be tween Maudlow and Three Forks via the present main line. Bozeman is 41 miles farther than ; A number of others were present at the meeting held Thursday besides the members of the regular commit tee and work will be started on the The èommercial project at once, club committee in charge of the pro position consists of W.

Pence, V INI) STORM W ORST VALLEY HAS SEEN (Continued from Page One.) the H. S. Buell, ranch west of Boze man was almost completely wrecked. Around summer fallowed fields in the country where there w'ere tumble ! weeds the wind blew these against the fence and then tore off rods of barb wire and many miles of rural telephone lines were put out of com mission by falling poles. In the country south of Manhattan and on the bench a rather peculiar condition exists. Here the tumble weeds lined the fences. The wind drifted in the dust, as snow drifts in the winter, until the roads between the fences are two to two and one half feet deep in fine, powdered dust and cars cannot get through. It is said that in some places only a foot that have stood for years have been broken off, the tops of hay stacks have been scattered over hundreds of or so of fence posts and but one wire appears above the dust. All over the valley old cottonwoods acres and even the fence posts have been'broken off in some instances where they were getting a bit old. For tunately most of the winter wheat in the valley has had a good start and little or no damage is reported ss done to that crop. On the Flathead it is reported that one new house was almost compleUdy demolished and bams and sheds were blown down and turned over on many ranches.
