ORaOMAX NEWS BVREAU. Wash
ington, July 13. That the "tarHr Is a
local Issue" was proved beyond all ques
tion during the. long weeks the Payne
AMrlch bill was pending before the Sen
ate. Regardless of party. Senators very
generally demanded protection for the
Industries of their respective states, and
in this demand Democrats were as In
sistent as their ultra-protectionist Repub
lican colleagues. In the tariff fight party
platforms were Ignored, party lines -were
broken down, and with few exceptions
Senators, regardloss of party, voted In
accordance with the wishes of their con
stituents. The exceptions were men
strong enough to ignore public sentiment
Senator Chamberlain, a Democrat, was
one of those who experienced an early
awakening. Though pledged by his party
platform to a reduction of tariff duties,
he found it impossible on all occasions
save one to vote for reductions upon the
leading products of his state. In general,
he voted for lower duties than were pro
posed by the finance committee, but when
lregon Interests were Involved, he was
as much a protectionist as If he had been
a life-long, hide-bound Republican. He
was not alone, however, for on every
occasion when ha found himself voting to
keep up the duty, he discovered that he
had Democratic companions In plenty.
Voted for High Lumber Duty,
The lumber schedule perhaps embar
rassed more Democrats than any other
single schedule In the tariff bill, for on
that proposition a majority of the Demo
cratic Senators voted against free lum
ber, and against a reduction of the duty,
notwithstanding the specific promise
contained In the Denver platform, and
the campaign declarations of William J.
Democratic Senators who voted with
Aldrich did not live up to their party
pledge. Fourteen different times Cham
berlain Is recorded with the Aldrich ma
jority and almost without exception those
votes were on schedules having direct
bearing upon the industries of Oregon.
The principal occasions when Chamber
lain's tariff views coincided with those
of the Republican leader -were when
efforts were made to place lumber on the
free list or to reduce the duty beyond
the point fixed by the finance committee.
There were six rollcalls while the lum
ber schedule was being disposed of. and
every one of the six times Chamberlain.
Democrat, voted for the highest attain
able duty upon lumber and against every
proposed reduction beyond the rates rec
ommended by the finance committee.
Chamberlain voted against free lumber
on two occasions; he voted against the
House provision reducing the duty on
rough lumber to Jl; he voted against
proposals to out the rates on finished
lumber beyond the finance committee
limit, and finally he voted for the finance
committee lumber amendment, a marked
advance over the House provision.
For Protection on Wool.
When the wool schedule was reached.
Senator Chamberlain found It necessary
to repudiate again his party platform
and to vote protection to the wool Indus
try of Oregon. It Is true that he missed
nine of the votes taken on various phases
of the wool schedule, but when he did
vote, he almost without exception voted
with Aldrich and the finance committee
he voted for a higher duty than the
Democratic majority was willing to ac
cord; higher rates than were promised
by the Denver platform. His stand on
the wool schedule Is best understood by
reviewing the various votes taken In the
Senator Chamberlain was not In Wash
ington when the wool arherfnio --
reached. Top waste, scoured wool and
ueen votea upon Deiore his re
turn. Then came the Dolllver amend
ments, proponing to reduce the duty on
munuiaeiures. These amend
ments were supported by Chamberlain,
for Oregon does not manufacture woolen
goods to anv 1 n ri-n evtnnt
Senator Dolllver directed his amendments
ni me amy on raw wool and wool In
various unmanufactured states, "raw ma
terial." as It was nnnularlv 1 1 .l i

and the Democratic majority and cast

committee for the highest attainable

amendment regulating the duty on first
o.n.1 fi unu-riHSF wools according to
Kiirinkage. This, would materially hav.
nduced the duty, and Dolllver contend
d It would have been a more equltabl.
assessment than proposed by the Aldrlcl
plan. Chamberlain Joined Aldrich li
voting a cuius t this Amendment Tka fr.1
lowing day Cummins moved to recommit
the entire wool schedule with instructions
to report out n new si'tmHiil ln-A. i.
proposed by the committee, particularly
.n iiitiuuiai-iurcs oi wool. Again Cham
Wrlain voted with Aldrich, posslbly.be
cause the Cumnifm mntlnn hnA it
vailed, would have reduced the duty on
wool In the raw state, as well as the fin
ished product after passing through the
muis. i nat was in accord with his othe
votes on the wool schedule.
Itecord on Philippine Duty.
Against Cheap Coal and Free Sacks.
When the Senators from Washington
were making their fight against the Mc
Cumber amendment reducing the d.ny
on coal from 67 to 40 cents per ton. Cham
berlain Joined them. This amendment
was defeated, and the duty on coal was
eventually fixed at 60 cents per ton.
Later, when Jones offered an amend
ment proposing to remove the duty on
grain sacks In the interest of the farm
ers of the Northwest, Chambe-lain Joined
in and voted with his Washlngtoi col
leagues. This amendment, also, was de
feated. When print paper and woDd pulp were
under consideration, there were three
rollcalls. In each Instance. Chamber
lain voted against Aldrich. He supported .
the amendment proposing to admit print
paper free of duty; he also voted for tho
amendment reducing the duty on print
paper to one-tenth of a cent per pound
after July 1, 1912; both amendments were
defeated. Later. Chamberlain voted
against the Aldrich motion to Increase
the House rate cn wood oulp paper from
one-tenth to two-tenths of a cent per
For Free Hides and Leather Goods.
The only other instances where Cham
berlain voted with Aldrich were when he
voted for a duty of 25 cents per ton on
Iron ore something not produced In Ore
gon and something the Democrats had
proposed to put on the free list; and when
he voted against the Bacon amendment
to the earthenware schedule. -
Chamberlain's tariff record would not
be complete without a statement of his
position on uie hides and leather sched
ules. Oregon Is a producer of hides, and
Chamberlain was the only Western Sen
ator who voted for free hides. Even
Western Democrats voted for a duty on
hides all save Chamberlain. When Stone
proposed to place leather and manufac
tures of leather on the free list, Chamber
lain voted with him; when McLaurin pro
posed an amendment to the committee
amendment making the duty on hides
applicable to all hilcj. rather than to
hides weighing 25 pounds or morn. Cham
berlain supported that proposition, but
on the final vote on the unaltered com
mittee amendment restoring hide3 to the
dutiable list at a 15 per cent ad valorem
rate. Chamberlain voted against tho
amendment. The "'House had jfut hides
on the free list.
Almost Always on Hand.
Chamberlain was away from Washing
ton about ten days, during the latter
part of May and first of June he was
visiting his old home in Mississippi. Dur
ing his absence there were 12 votes in tha
Senate, but with the exception of some
of the wool schedules, none was of direct
interest to Oregon. During that same
period there were 15 calls for a quorum.
Aside from the period designated, Cnau--berlain
was almost constantly in the Sen
ate and missed, very few votes and very
rew rollcalls. rso matter how tiresome
the discussion, he was usually to be
found In his seat while the Senate was In
session. Out of the R7 rollcalls to ascer
tain the presence of a quorum. Cham
berlain answered all but ten when he
was in the city, and of the 104 votes, he
responded to all but 15. Ills record for
attendance will compare favorably witn
that of most Senators, suffering only fcy
comparison with that of Aldricn and his
lieutenants on the finance committee,
who had direct charge of the tariff bill.
Finally, after voting for protection on
so many Items, and after contributing
as much as any minor Senator in putting
the Senate tariff bill In Its present con
dition. Chamberlain voted against the
bill Jist to save his Democratic standing:

PORTLAND DAY TO DRAW
ATTENDANCE AT SEATTLE JULY
2 0 TO BE IMMENSE.
Committees Working Hard to Beat
Seattle's Mark at Iewis and
That Portland day may be the day
of all days at the A-Y-P Fair at Seat
tle Is the end toward which the Ore
gon Commission and the local Com
mercial Club are working.
Through the agency of W. H. Wehrung,
president of the Oregon Commission, a
general invitation has been extended to
the citizens of Portland to attend the
Informal reception to be held at the
Oregon Exposition building in the
afternoon of Portland day, July 20. This
is but one of the numerous features to
be provided by the' Commission toward
the entertainment and reception of the
Portlanders. A score of prominent
local women will act as hostesses.
The committee appointed by the Com
mercial Club, composed of Mayor Simon,
President Wetherbee. Edward Eiirman,
T. B. Wilcox, W. J. Hofmann, R. W.
Hoyt, C. C. Colt and William MacMaster,
is laboring actively in conjunction with
the Commission with the hope of sur
passing the usual features of the da"y
as well as securing the distinction of
making Portland day at the exposition
the banner day in the attendance fig
ure. The various committees and interest
ed bodies are optimistic as to the out
come of the occasion. While none will
venture to suggest an approximate fig
ure as to the number who (Will attend
the exposition on Tuesday, July 20,
Portland's- specified day, yet it is inti
mated and prophesied that Portland
day will outstrip the attendance figures
of any day since the opening.
The occasion for profitable advertis
ing of Portland is not going amiss
Every method to put forth the slogan
for the half-million population three
years hence Is being adopted. Every
loyal Portlander will wear a badge bid
ding for "500,000 in 1912." Aside from
making a strenuous appeal to the citi
zens of Portland who can afford the
time .and the small-expense to attend
the Fair, the Commercial Club com
mittee extends a call to all organiza
tions to participate. Every organiza
tion in the City of Portland or sub
urbs, whether of a commercial, civic,
fraternal or a military nature is invited
to avail itself of the opportunity for
boosting its home city.
It is with the spirit of rivalry that
the committees are going about their
work. While the one principal effort
will be to advertise Portland, yet the
extra endeavor will be to outdo Seat
tle in point of attendance on its desig
nated day at the Lewis and Clark Fair
in this city.
"Everybody is going!" was the en
thusiastic expression of W. H. Wehrung,
president of the Oregon Commission,
last night. "I have every reason to
believe that every Portlander who can
possibly get away will attend the ex
position on his home day next Tuesday.
Every loyal Portlander should imbue
himself with that Trlendly rivalry
toward Seattle to the extent of Joining
the ranks of visitors, which in the ag
gregate wili outnumber the Seattleites
who visited our fair on their designat
ed day a few year ago. We have
prided ourselves in the fact that all
Portlanders are boosters and loyal In
every extreme. The crucial time for
displaying our boosting proclivities and
loyalty has arrived. It's up to us now
to prove we are what we claim to be.
The tremendous turnout we anticipate
will, not only have its desired effect on
Seattle, but s bound to make the
proper impression upon the visitors at
the Fair who hail from all points of
the compass" "
On Way to San Quentin Parasite
Boasts of His Many "Affairs"
and Says He Regrets but
One Case of Deception.
SAN JOSE. CaJ.. July 13. Before de
parting for San Quentin prison today to
serve his seven-year term for bigamy.
Christian C. Johnson, otherwise known
as John Madson, the professional bride
groom, made a statement In which he
described many of his adventures into
matrimony. In reviewing his long career
as a parasite- upon trusting women,
Johnson said, with evident zest, that he
had enjoyed the best time of his life in
Portland, Or., where he had married
one woman and courted nine others all
at the same time.
He went to Portland in the Fall of
190f and advertised for a wife. He re
ceived numerous answers and the result
was his marriage to Eliza Jones, he as
suming the name of John Madson. Mad
son said she had been divorced from her .
husband and she owned a one-third in
terest in the biggest coal and woodyard
In South Portland. He said:
I got $1800 from her because she loved
me. I could have gotten $50,000 from
the woman I am sure I could have.
'We took an Interurban car and went
to one of the suburbs of Portland and
were married by a minister. She had
already' arranged for him. We returned
to Portland and I lived with her for two
weeks. At the eame time I was paying
court to nine other women. I had the
best time I ever had in my life. i
Spent Money on All.
'One of the women was a rich woman, ;
the wife of a sea captain He ran be
tween Seattle and Nome. 9he wanted to
leave her husband and marry me. Her
name was Deloem. I made love to her
and to all the other nine women In Port
land who answered my advertisement I
took a fancy to. I did not get any
money from any of them, however. I
spent the money that I got from Mrs.
Jones on them; In fact, when Mrs. Jones
nd I started from- Portland to San
Francisco, I left Portland because I was
afraid my wife would find out about the
attentions thatI was paying these other
women. I left her right opposite the City
Hall on Fourteenth street in Oakland.
We arrived in Oakland at night about 8
o'clock, and we went to the -Hotel Tour-
aine on Fourteenth street. We, were
going . to some springs, , and I left her in
the hotel and went from there direct to
Continuing his story. Johnson said he
had married so many 'women that he
could not recall the names of all of
Started Game In 1900.
"In 1906." he said, "I quit my business
of buying horses, and from that day to
this have been making my living by
marrying and making love to women, get
ting their money and then deserting
Johnson was born in Germany, and
coming to this .country in the 70s, secured
a post with the united States Government
buying horses for the Army on commis
sion. This took him all over the coun
try. At first, he says, he was a woman-
hater, because he had been separated
from a sweetheart in Germany, who died
He married the first of his many wives
in Springfield. Mass., In 1905. She was
Mrs. Mary Brown.
Really Loved One.
"As I think over the list of women that
I have either courted or married, I think
I 'would pick out Mrs. Sylvia Pollard de
Bonnett, of San Francisco, as the one I
loved, best. She is really a good woman
I went to Germany and when I returned
some one told me she was dead. Had I
known she still lived I would not have
gotten Into this trouble. In St. Louis
met a woman, head nurse at a hospital
at 3144 Grr.nd avenue, who; I believe, was
one of the most beautiful of all the wo
men I ever met. And she certainly did
love me. Her given name was Catherine
but I don't remember her last name. It
was really a shame to take her money.
The following 18 women were onlv
few of Johnson's dupes, according to his
conression, and figured most prominently
in r.is matrimonial intrigues:
