We referred tbe other day to tbe
terriflo fight that is being waged by
the speoial interests against the pend
ing tariff bill. Tbe correspondents
have cot exaggerated anything, as is
demonstrated by the President's dram
atic warning and call to tbe people.
Tbe tnasees have no lobbyists, Con
gress and tbe Kxooutive are supposed
to lepresent them, Lot the pressure of
tbe paid lobbyists is an "intolerable
harden" not to say nnisanoe. Tbe
bombardment of senators, especially
tbe weaker ones, by mail and tele
graph is, of coarse, also directed by
tbe lobby. 'And, as tbe President
says, many of those who write letters
of protest and complaint know nothing
of the facts and conditions, and mere
ly do tbe liddng of friends, or of
friends of friends. The mauofaotore
of artificial opinion can only ba
obeoked by exposure and tbe open
appeal of honest men to a real publio
opinion. Let those who bave tbe facts
and arguments to present demand a
fair hearing. Threats, bluffs, baseless
fabrications arid vague orics of "ruin"
should utterly fail of effect. The
President and bis cabinet will do
their part in defeating tbe invaders
and sappers, and tbe Senate has ap
pointed a committee to investigate the
Great Diitain, France and Italy

State at Washington, according to
dispatobes of the 21st ult., of their
acceptance of tbe principle under

by President Wilson and Mr. Bryan
for tbe nations of tbe world. Now
that these three ualioos bave express
ed their approval, the Secretary of
State, Mr. Bryan, will proceed in ac
cordance with the plan to negotiate
with eaoli riatiou a sopatale treaty
ty tbe terms of wbiob such nation

One hundred oattle- and horsemen

In this oouueotion au effort is beiug
made to have a braud inspector at the
Ncrtb Portland markets. Ibis action
is found neoessary on the part of stock

rustling. The law is not enforced
severely enough against cattle aud
horse thioves. When oouvioted, as a
rule, tbey get oil with light seutenoes

A tdg Toxub tanoh of 210,000 acres

own in Texas. As tetween a Japauese

LISZT AND HIS CIGARS.
Why the Great Musician Said He
Would Quit Smoking.
Liszt was in the habit of smoking
one cigar n day. But that one cignr
was an exceedingly choice one. When
he was starting on a journey be told
his valet how many days he would be
away, and his valet put Into the valise
a corresponding number of, those ci
gars. Once when Liszt was going to, Italy
the chief customs officer at the frontier
post of Chlnsso asked him If he had
anything to declare. The musician,
with bis thoughts centered ou bis mu
sic rather than his cigars, made sljrns
to the effect that he had nothing. The
officer opened the valise without the
traveler ngltatlng himself over the
search. Presently n number of tignrs
were brought to light. The whole lot
was confiscated, nud lie was ordered to
pay a flue of $100.
When Liszt reached Milan he told his
ngent of his unpleasant adventure. Rl
cordl laughed at the whole affair, took
a stroll to the Italian treasury and re
covered the cigars and the fine. Ou
returning to the artist he offered him,
with a smile, one of his own precious
"No, my dear friend," said Liszt, "1
have taken n vow never to smoke again
so" as not to expose myself n second
time to such n humiliation."
IMcordl says he kept his vow. Other
authorities recall Iteger's visit to the
virtuoso in 1870.
"Liszt smoked and offered me n ci
gar," said IJeger, "and while I took my
ease ho walked up and down, sending
out clouds of suioko In tho direction of

A correspondent In Notes and Queries
refers to a belief prevalent In Lanca

house and will do no harm to those
who use them well, but that they cat

"That's the sixth Studebaker we've
passedthe only kind to invest in"
"The only kind-because, as I always say, when
a man puts money in a thing he wants to know that ,
he's going to get the worth of it out again."
"That's plain business as I look at it"
"That's why I say the price doesn't tell you any
thing at all. There's only one thing that talks except
the wagon itself. That's the name of the maker."
"When you buy a Studebaker you're buying a
vehicle that has behind it and in it sixty years of ex
perience sixty years of success and sixty years of
reputation for the square deal. That's why a Stude
baker always looks good to me.
"My father used to say that Studebaker Honor was as sure
at a United States bank note. He was talking after having used
Studebaker vehicles since he was a lad, and he told me his father,
before him said, 'Be sate-rget a Studebaker.' "
"Vehicle builders can't hold that sort of reputation now-a-days
without delivering the goods. A Studebaker wagon has the
best in it That's why a. man gets the mot out of It why it'
always an economy."
"Dealers may say to you something else is 'just as good.' But
when you buy a Studebaker, you're making a safe investment
