tlan C. Johnson Is .reported to have con
fessed that he 1 the mysterious John
Madson, wanted In many parts of the
country tor Irregular matrimonial ventures
nd systematic swindling of women under
promise of marriage.
Johnson's alleged confession, nowever,
which Is printed today In a local news
paper, la so full ef Inconsistencies, and
so at variance with statements he has
made since his arrest In this city last
week, that the police authorities are not
Inclined to give it full credence. In this
oonfesslon Johnson declares that he has
been married to so many women that he
cannot count them offhand.
Lore Making- Ills Profession.
'In 1!K,M he says, "I quit my business of
buying horses and from that day to this
have been making my living by marry
ing and making love to women, getting
their money and then deserting them."
One ot his most amaxlng feats, accord
ing to hi own confession was making, love
to ten women at one time In Oregon.
While he admits that he got money from
most ot them, and that hi marriages were
part of a get-rlch-qulck system, Johnson
declares that in every instance he spent
the money he received upon the victim
They kept me broke all the time," Is the
way he expresses it.
Converted from Woman Hater.
Johnson was born in Germany and com
ing to this country In the 70 s secured 1
post with the United States government,
buying horses for the army on commission
This took him all over the country. At
first he says he was a woman-hater, be
came he had been separated from a sweet
heart In Germany, who died later.
He married the first of bis many wives
in Korlnsfleld. Masa., in l&JG, She waa
Mrs. Mary Brown.
I married only one woman under the
name of John Madson," Johnson declared
Her name waa Jones If I remember
rightly Edna Jones. I got 11,800 from hor,
because she said she loved me. I could have

married and deserted within the last three
years according to the confession were:

His alleged confession to marrying' "Ellxa

I am astonished at the character of the
reports that have been made here tonight
and amazed at their comprehensiveness,
manifesting so .clearly the remarkable
growth of publlo sentiment l favur of an
American built and American operated
merchant marine. It shows that the coun
try la alive to its best Interest and that
the day of misunderstandings and preju
dice among the majority ot our people as
to much needed shipping legislation Is
rapidly going. There seems to have been a
superstitious fear of the word "subsidy."
I am not afraid of the word. Every na
tion In the world that can boast ot a mer
chant marine worth having helps to sus
tain It by governmental aid. If 'he United
States ts to have o merchant marine and
every consideration of national security
and progress demands its building w
mult meet the terms of competition forced
on u by the maritime powers. Tha United
States cannot order the maritime poltcies
of other countries. We must do as they
do or weakly suriender the ocean carrying
business of the world to them. We are
not offered a choice, but are confronted by
Something must be done In the matter of
merchant marine legislation and that
quickly. I have taken occasion whenever
1 have been asked to express myself
frankly concerning my attitude. I am glad
to know that In this particular matter
Hocaker Cannon and I agree thoroughly.
The great increase in tiie population of
the cou.itry as well as the necessities of
the navy and our own commerce make it
essential that not only our representatives
In congress, but their constituents aa well
should know the exact facts as to how
our luck of a mercnanl fleet Is working
Injury to national Interests. I regret very
much the failure of the ocean mail act,
which was lost by a n.argln of but four
votes. I feel that with the Increased
amount of Information that the people of
the country are obtaining on thl subject,
the cause will have a substantial majority
tn the house on the next vote. I pledge my
best efforts lo bring thl about.
You Me from thl that you are mistaken
when you aay that the president does not
favor subsidy. I refer you to the sen
tences "There stem to have " a su
Wkat tbe President laid.
WASHINGTON. July lO.-Vo uu. Editor
of Th Bte: I have been aent an editorial
In which you refer to the dinner recently
given by the Merchant Marine league in
this olty, tn which you say:
While President Taft waa present at th
banquet and mad a speech In favor of re
habilitating the American merchant marine,
he did nut commit himself to th subsidy
feature. Th value or even the necessity
of a strong merchant marine la nti ques
tioned and the republican nation! platform
declared In favor of Its encouragement,
but neither this declaration nor Mr. Taft
speech can be construed into endorsement
of Immediate subsidy leglslatiun.
I waa present at th dinner and President
Taft, according to notea as published at that
time, used the following language, which,
after refreshing my memory, I am sure la
perstltlou fear ef th word 'subsidy,' I
am not afraid of th word. Every nation in
the world that can boast of a merchant
marine worth having helps to sustain It
by governmental aid." If there was any
doubt left after that statement that he
1 tn favor of a aubaldy, it la certainly re
moved by the following:
"I regret very much the failure of the
last ocean mall act. which was lost by a
margin of but four votes." This was a
subsidy bill exclusively and nothing else.
The president will not hesitate to state to
you, If you were to ask the question direct,
that he Is In favor of a direct subsidy
being paid for mail lines. Whatever may
be the merit of thl system I know that
you do not desire to misquote the president.
