"PIONEER" and get RESHIS VOLUME 29, Evening Times: U. S. Senator M. N. Johnson's view on the tariff ques tion as expressed by him in an inter view given to tfie Evening Times upon a request made over long distance tele phone, is very interesting. The sen ator, who arrived at his home Monday from the season ofhard work at Wash ington, takes up the question fro pounded to him, that of the relation of President Taft towards the senate,and alsj their work together. '•Did President Taft and the senate work together in harmony?'' said Sen ator Johnson. Let us examine the record. The senate proposed 847 amendments to the house bill. In conference the house conferees agreed to 422 of these amendments, and the senate conferees receeded from 124 of its proposed amendments. That left 301 to be ad justed. Each side had to give and take. When these differences of opin ion had by various compromises been induced to seven points the President in a verbal and informal way took an earnest part in helping on the final agreement: These seven points were: 1. Iron Ore. 2. Coal. Taft In Harmony With Senate. Petroleum. Hides. Lumber. A few styles of kid gloves. Three kinds of cotton hose. Agreements were reached on the first four of these points mainly by the informal, verbal, good influence of the President as follows: Iron ore was reduced from 40 cents a ton, the Dingly rate, to 15 cents. Bitumin us coal was reduced from f7 cents per ton, Iiiugly rate, to 45 cents per ton. Petroleum free as heretofore, except for the omission of a possible counter vailing duty, of no account. Hides, formerly dutiable at 15 per cent, were placed on the free list. "That left olny three points of diff erence to be adjusted, viz: Lumber, kid gloves and cotton hose. At this point tho President for the first time not counting his special message on the corporation tax—offered a sug gestion in writing. In a letter to Mr. Aldrich he named his ultamatum which was promptly and cheerfully ac 3. 4. 5. «. 7. Senator Johnson Talks on Tariff. CATALOGUE GOODS POOR.

That ultimatum has been heralded far and wide as a crushing defeat for tho senate. Exactly the reverse is true. On rongh lumber the house rate was $1. per thousand and the senate rate was $1.50 per thousand. Taft's ultimatum was $1.25. On dressed lumber, kid gloves and cotton hose the senate rate was lower than the house rate and the ultimatum was that it should be accepted. It was ac cepted. What a famous viciory that was over the senate. On rough lum ber, which is not for sale in any lum ber yard in North Dakota, we had to split the difference by each yielding 25 cents, while on dressed lumber, kid gloves and cotton hose, the President insisted that the lower rates of the sen ate bill should go into the new tariff law and there it is. If that was a crushing defeat for the senate it could stand a few more jolts. "Here is a new law covering over 4,000 items. 3,993 of these items were identical or adjusted in conference between loyal republicans of both houses of congress, without execu tive aid. Pour items were agreed up on with the friendly, tactful, informal help of the President. The last three items were agreed upon in consequence of a wise,firm, written ultimatum in which the President insisted on the house yielding its opinion to the lower duty insisted on by the senate and the President, on dressed lumber, In an inteview with a representative of the Fargo Forum, Commissioner Ladd warns the people of the state against purchasing articles of food from the cataloge houses as the larger per cent of them are adulterated and WANTED—Farm, business or income the people do not get their money's property.

'"The senate leaders/ kept in con stant touch with the President. They agreed with him up to the last seven items of the law. In four of these seven items they yielded gracefully to his wishes and in the last three they were handsomely sustained by his written ultimatum. "Now there are only two sides to this controversy—for or against the law—for or against the President. Until public confidence in the in tegrity and ability of the president is destroyed, hostility to his faithful subordinates and assistant will fall flat. Payne's name was on the bill while in the making, but Taft's name will stand alone on the law and be a part of it for all time.'' to warn the "people against buying food articles from the catalogue hous es," saidCommissionerLadd. "Sever al people in different parts of the state have sent me samples of goods they have secured from these concerns, and by testing them I find that a large per cent are adulterated, while some is absolutely unfit for consumption." JOY IN BAD MUSIC MR. MACWHIMPLETON EXPLAINS HIS THEORY. Freedom from All Rule Ho. Think* Probably Is the Reason it Gives Him Pleasure—Out of the Routine. "Next to a very good band," said Mr. MacWhimpleton. "I like best a very poor one. There is something about the music of a very poor band that always pleases me greatly. I don't suppose it's the discord exactly, nor yet the mere tumult 1 guess it's the general riotousness of it, its free dom from all rule. iiumiu 99 That's it, particularly, I guess, its general emancipatedness, its complete, ecstatic, triumphant freedom from every form of restraint. Life com monly is such a constant, uniform struggle within hard set bounds that any sort of freedom seems delightful. "In this very matter of band music, now, you take the music of a good band. How long have its members had to struggle and work to produce music like that? How many weary hours of practice, blowing the same notes over and over and over again until they have reached the desired perfection of execution? And we like that music? Why of course we do we love it. It is soothing and grate ful, suave and beautiful, it is alto gether lovely but it is music with gyves on it. "But now you take the music of the very bad brass band! How different! No slavery for you there, but freedom quite untrammeled the* whole band out of tune and no two instruments in harmony, each player with his eyes glued to his own notes and playing as he will, Intent only on his own per formance, the bass horn man blowing out thunder in massive if somewhat irregular chunks the flat cornet fairly lacerating the atmosphere with desultory sections of resonant barbed wire, the baritone finding his horn plugged now and then, but blowing the note plugs out finally in a bunch that may not match up very well with the rest of the players, but that shows he's got the horn clear anyway. "Hea.ir now the curious convolutions of unrelated sound produced by the trombone man and listen, will you listen to the piccolo! And is not this the star of all the pounders of the sheepskin, the deadly earnest man that beats the big bass drum? And where could you find another such ag gregation? Nowhere, probably which to some folks may be pleasing, but not to me. "I love to hear them play. It soothes, refreshes and stimulates me it makes me take a joyous view it is some thing out of the routine a few mi nutes, at least, of something totally absolutely different. "Mine is not the hardest life in the world, and still it is, like most men's lives, more or less of a grind, and at times I long for freedom, and when thus I crave relief from care, from all the hard and steady grind of life with its set and studied ways, why, then I find freedom and Joy unmeas ured in music unstudied and unbridled in the blessed uproar and chaos of a very bad brass band." "Why did the Jenkinses discharge the nurse they had? I understand she was such a good one." "So she was, but, you see, she was snake charmer who was with a stranded cirous here." "How did that affect her ability for nursing?" "She was a little absent-minded and when Mrs. Jenks told her to get some thing to amuse the baby with she was going to give him a rattlesnake."
