TWO STRONG MEASURES.
With the passage by the house of
the Sherwood bill, the democrats can
now claim credit for the two most
beneficial laws ever acted upon for
the benefit of the veterans. In Janu
ary, 1875, the Rice law, fathered by
General A. V. Rice, a democratic sol
dier of Ohio, was passed. Since that
time the movement for a "dollar-a-
day" pension has been gaining force,
but while the old soldiers always were
promised relief by one republican ad
ministration after another, these
promises were never made good.
The bill was passed after a protract
ed fight over certain proposed amend
ments, chief of which was a revision
to bar from its benefits those soldiers
who have not income In excess of
$1,000 a year. This provision of the
bill was stricken out.
WHAT BILL COItVETS.
As it was finally passed, the Sher
wood bill , grants to all old soldiers
who served 90 days, $15 a month; six
months, $20; nine months, $25; one
year or more, $30.
Speaker Champ Clark voted for the
bill. Mr. Clark has always been a
good friend to the old soldier. The
consensus of opinion is that his stand
on the Sherwood bill places him near
er than ever to the honor of being the
democratic standard bearer in 1912.

Mayor Seidel's announcement that
the party willing, be Intends to run

to turn all eyes away from Los Ange

of attention. Certainly there will be

It is still too early to make a reliable

There is, of course, one other factor
to be reckoned with. The old Rose ma
chine, the more or less bi-partisan
crowd, which misruled Milwaukee for
so long, is anxious to get back. It is a
very chastened crowd and it talks
more than it used to talk about the
beauties of a "nonpartisan" govern
ment and of a "business man's" ad
ministration of Milwaukee. But the
tal La Follette "goo-goos" will have
nothing to do with them, and it is
cuestionable whether their alleged re
habilitation deceives anybody.
On the whole, the election should be
a fair index of the local sentiment upon
IJayor Seidel's administration. He
has not had full power. For example,
he has not had control of the chief of
police. Nor has he had two-thirds of
the council behind him. For this rea
son he has not been able to carry out
some of the legislative schemes with
which he went Into office. He has had
to content himself with purely admin

ful methods in the various depart

Utopian flavor, and it may readily be
seen that the mildness of the Seidel
accomplishments has tended to reas
