Paul Carpenter was a Republican
until this year and now he appears to
have liecome a Democrat outright. This,
with the Can-t that he is a sou of Wiscon
sin's celebrated United States senator.
Matt. H. Carpenter, gave great interest
to his first appearance on the stump this
year. His subject was imperialism, and
he spoke before the Jefferson club, Mil
waukee. on Monday. It was one of the
best political discourses of the campaign
in Milwaukee. It was a cool, deliberate,
logical, clear and concise account of the
position of the opponents of the present
administration’s policy in regard to the
Some of his thoughts were these: The
future of the republic and the future ot
the Democratic party .'-re one and the
same. If the party goes, the republic
falls. The republic is an trial. For 13')
years it has stood as an example ot free
government. Will it mow forsake those
principles on which it was founded?
Bryan —as a man inis stood in the
white light of public gaze for four years
and has proved himself a man. His in
tellectnal growth has been so rapid that
it suggests that it was a*nt a growth,tixat
he was always possessed of a remarkable
mind, but that we did not know it be
fore. He has marie no "bad breaks in
four years of constant watching. He is
a tit man to lead this nation.
McKinley's words are not an index,
but rather a disguise o; his character.
He talks prosjierity and is bringing ad
versify, he talks economy and is woe
fully extravagant, he talks peace and
makes war, he talks liberty ami is crush
ing out liberty. There has been a
change, moreover, in the spirit of the na
tion in the past two years. Verily it is
the voice of Jacob but the hands of Esau.

A Number of Meetings Have Been
Outlook is Exceeding Bright for the
County Surveyor O’Hara is a Prime Favorite
Everywhere 4k have confidence
bi 1 all are Working.
The Democratic campaign iu the
county is moving along at excellent
speed, Tt is thought by those itiiiposi
tioa to know that the county will go
Democratic by a aery substantial major
ity. The Indief is that not only w ill the
county ticket triumph at the {Mills, but
that the state and national tickets will
be endorsed in a handsome manner.
Men from v arious ■sections of ttie tv unity
who come to the city report that the
farmers are violently opposed to tle ini
perialistic-militarisau policy of the Re
publican administration, and they are
waiting for the opportunity to allow
their distaste of it.
As to the county ticket it is said that
from the sheriff down to the surveyor,
all will be elected. Mr. O’Hara who re
ceived the Democratic nomination for
surveyor is more than popular. His
nomination has met with unbounded
favor, the voters believing that one m
efficient should lie retained
A number of meetings have been ar
ranged, at which there will be good

The Pilot received the following communication from sin old and
well known Manitowoc pioneer, Lafayette Smith, now u resident in
the Soldier's home at Waupaca;
To the Editor:
'T am getting disgusted with your newspapers: almost even one 1
peruse has some scurrilous remarks about Mother Hanna and her lit
tle Willie. It is a burning shame to talk about such a nice old ladj.
We all had mothers some time or other and they should be protected,
and I am going to stand up for Mother Hanna if everybody else goes
back on her. Some people forget how hard she work< and four years ago
cooking fish for little Willie down in Canton, O. When the people
heard about it they hired the railroad companies and invited all of the
coal workers and other laboring men to take a tree ride to Willie's
house to hear him tell them how to fry fat. Of course the railroad
boys had fat to fry. but they wanted to have them cooked in Wash
ington, so Mother Hanna says all right: if my campaign money holds
out. and Willie is elected, he will press the button that will carry me
to the senate, then we will fix up your railroad matters. You see,
Mother Hannah is such a nice old lady, and thinking so much of Wil
lie's morals, she would not let him associate with the Bryan Itoy. .jump
ing off from stumps, for fear of his getting his imperialistic idea- hurt.
The dear old lady's generosity is now with these same poor miners
again, full of sympathy for their misery, and tells them to !• good
children, to vote for Willie, and she will see that after election their
dinner pails will be full. What a nice motherly old lady she is' No
trust money for the poor. They will find only an empty promise for it
on mother’s ticket.
"Enclosed please find check for one year's subscription for your bright
and spicy Pilot; may it be the means of piloting some of the poor de
luded followers of imperialism back to true Americanism.
(iive your boys a smoke with the extra change, and may ‘‘success al
ways be within your reach."
“May this Immense temple <>( freedom ever stand a lesson to
oppressors, an example to the oppressed and a sanctuary lor the
rights of mankind; and may this glorious United States attain
that complete splendor which shall illustrate the blessings of their
government and relolce the departed souls of its founders.”
These words of Lafayette were read to five million American
school children a year ago this month, and were uttered by him
on the occasion of his last \ islt to this country.
The first definite step toward the erec
tion of a fine city hall and public library
building was taken by Qrten Bay com
mon council last Friday, when the com
mittee on Finance and Public Gi minis
was instructed to confer with the Com
mittee representing the Kellogg public
library concerning plans for the pro
posed building, which will be very hand
some. A majority of the aldermen favor
the construction of a building that will
cost from #50,000 to #60,000, and advise
a bond issue to raise the money. It is
promised to submit the building ques
tion to the voters at the coming general

The first annual report of the Manito
woc library will In* submitted to the
mayor and city council at the end of the
present month. President L. J. Nash is
now at work getting the matter in shape.
A numlws* of important statements will
he made, among the more immanent will
lie one showing the value -of the lift ary
and its usefulness in the city as drawn
from tignres for the first year of its ex
istence. The need of an extra or assist
ant librarian will 1m- recowiinended. The
Library Itnard is thoroughly convinced
[ that more help is needed dn the library.
| hence the request will ia■ made to pro
i vide Miss Von Briesen, the present cajia
hie librarian, with an assistant. Mr.
Nash say* that Miss Vow Briesen lias
amply fulfilled the requirements of the
hoard, but *he needs help, as the work is
expanding The library is constantly
being enlarged by new- Isioks. and they
have to lie classified and placed on the
shelves, which adds considerably to her

Louis G. Buhmrich. the Democratic

ically received at the meeting of the Ha

his pride iu Germany as well as in Amer

passed by a rising vote amid applause.
Mr. Buhmrich said.
“I thank you for your hearty greeting,
you among whom I have been so often,
whom 1 have addressed on so many oc
casions, ami you who have known me
for so many years will appieciate the
feeling that at this time permeates my
whole U'iug. I have always been glad
when you cheered my praises of the mas

more particularly have I been pleased in ]
years gone by when yon have lieen en

which you trace your ancestry to one of

Baking Powder
The strongest, purest, most efficient and
wholesome of leavening agents. Not lowest
in price, yet the most economical; indispens
able to all who appreciate the best and most
healthful food.
Our country is enjoying prosperity almost
unsurpassed in its history.
For every one there is money enough to
buy that to eat which is pure, sound, good,
Why should we use cheap, impure, un
healthful articles of food ? There is no
economy in them ; they endanger thr health,
they may cost life. There are reported
almost daily cases of sickness caused by eat
ing cake, puddings or biscuit made with the
cheap, alum baking powders.
In all articles for food buy and use only
the best. The good health of the family is
of first consideration.
Alum is used in many baking powders because it makes
them cheap It costs less than two cents a pound.
Alum is a corrosive poison. Think of feeding it to chil
dren ! Vet the manufacturers of well-known alum
powders .ire actually denying that their goods contain it.
