Bryan made his first speech at West Superior on Saturday. In the course of it he said: “Mr. McKinley complains that the Democrats did not destroy the trusts when they had an opportunity and when he complained you must believe he was honest in his complaint. You cannot accuse him of being a hypocrite, and yet Mr. McKinley has been president for three and a half years and during that time more trusts have been organized than in all the previous history ol the country, and he has allowed three ses sions of congress to convene and adjourn and did not recommend a specific meas ure for the destruction of the trusts. And Mr. Hanna, w r ho stands at the head of the Republican National com mittee during this campaign, who stood at the head of ihe Republican National committee in IhWtt, declared the other day that there were no trusts. Now, if you believe that Mr. Mc- Kinlev was honest when he condemned the Democrats for not destroying the trusts, how can yon explain his policy in doing the same thing He selected an attorney general from New Jersey, where most of the trusts have their homes, and that attorney general draws his salaiy for not interfering with the trusts. The attorney general of the stab* of Nebraska, a Democrat elected on the fusion ticket has brought more suits in the state of Nebraska, against P' trust-; Hum tip* K•, . .... attorney general of the United States has brought against the trusts of the United States."

STATE BOARD OF DENTAL EXAMINERS WIN A BIG VICTORY IN THE SUPREME COURT. "While 1 have not seen the decision of the Supreme ( onrt overruling the action of .fudge Wyman in sustaining the demurrer of Mortimer J. Rioeof Monroe county to part of the return of the State Board of Dental Examiners t i his petition for the peremptory writ of mandamus compelling the hoard to grant him a license to practice in this state, 1 feel that it is highly important to all dentists and all State Boards of Dentistry," said Gen. ,1. B Doe, of Milwaukee, attorney for the State board. “Of coarse we are gratified over our victory," he continued. “As I understand it the Supreme court holds that the State board has the discretionary power to decide as to the reputableness of the dental college. Dr. 'Rice has a diploma from the Kansas City College of Dental Surgery and he wanted the State board to grant him a license on the strength of it The board, after a thorough investigation found that the Kansas City college was Hot a reputable institution, that it had been so declared by a Missouri court, and that it had sold diplomas without requiring any examinations. We found that ‘Dr.’ Rice be came an instructor in the college after being there six months. The college went out of existence in ls|t7, a year after the ‘doctor' got his diploma. After the State board had refused to issue him a license uu less he passed a satisfactory examination, the ‘doctor' brought action for a peremptory writ of mandamus to compel it to recognize his diploma and grant him the desired license. To this we made a return and the ‘doctor' demurred. His demurrer was sustained by Judge Wyman and the board appealed. As I understand it. the contention of the ‘doctors' attorneys that our law does not give the State board discretion to decide which arc and which are not reputable dental colleges is not upheld by the Supreme court. In other words, the board has power to pass on this question. " Mr. Rice's attorneys in the action ,inst decided were ex-Assemblyman David R. Jones of Sparta, bis assistant, Henry 1,. Sheldon of Madison, and Mr. Jones' law partner, Attorney Richards of Sparta. The appeal was argued before the Supreme court early this month. A suit is now pending against Mr. Rice for practicing without a license. The State board did not care to push this case until the Supreme court had passed on the mandamus action. Mr. Rice was arrested and fined last spring for assaulting Dr. W. H. Carson of Milwaukee. Secretary of the State board.

PIS SPEECH WAS HEARTILY APPLAUDED Devoted Considerable Attention to lm- i perialism. REFERRED TO THE PORTO RICO QUESTION, j He said the Administration had put <■ Tariff! on Porto Rico Articles at ihe Dictate of the Sugar Trust. < )ver 1300 voters heard Mr Bohmrich speak at Turner hall last Saturday. The auditorium was tastefully decorated fur the occasion. That the gubernatorial candidate was appreciated was evident by the hearty applause. Taking up the Phillippine question he argued at great length to show that the war with Agui naldo’s soldiers was the result of a fight between rowdies of the two armies, that Aguinaldo wanted to stop hostilities, hut Gen. Otis said no. and the war be gan and was being prosecuted to satisfy the greed of the money power. He de clared that trade would follow the Hag in its homeward journey, while the fac tory would follow the Hag on the out ward journey to get close to the raw material and to take advantage of the cheap labor in the Phillippine islands, sending the manufactured article to this county to beat the American working men. “Abraham Lincoln stood for the Dem ocracy of Jefferson," exclaimed Mr. Bohmrieh. “and William Jennings Bry an stands for the Republicanism of Abraham Lincoln."
