R. W. BURKE IS A SOCIALIST. Has Organized His Followers in This City. TO BE AGGRESSIVE IN POLITICS. At The Right Time Will Put Ticket in Field- INTERESTING INTERVIEW ON SOCIALISM. The Attorney Believes the Death Knell of Democracy has Been Sounded. — Rise of Hls Party. Through the influence of Richard W. Burke an organization of Socialists has been effected and a charter applied for from the state Social Democratic party. This happened las: Saturday night a.ul as soon as the charter is received the Socialists will proceed to extend their memberships. Only nine men signed the petition for a charter, but it is hoped that the organization will contain many hundreds of members befor next year s election. “I am an avowed Socialist,” said R. W. Burke, to a representative of The Pilot. “I am out of the Democratic organiza tion forever and I shall align myself with the Socialist party because I am firmly convinced that within a very short time the Democratic party will be no more. The signs are evident that disintegration is going on fast. Many old line Democrats are entering the Re publican fold, forced into it through policy, if not through conviction; other Democrats are renouncing allegiance to the old party and are fast becoming Socialists. I believe W. J. Bryan is a Socialist, although he will not admit it. The two groat parties of the future will be Republican and Socialist. “We have effected an organization of Socialists here, and officers elected are George H. Radi, secretary; Peter A. Peterson, treasurer and F. C. Skuhra, literary agent. “It is the purpose of organization to disseminate litrature ad vancing its special theories concern ing local, state and national govern ment, and by this means to win over to their side of the fence as many converts as possible.” The Socialists intend to put a ticket in the field in the next municipal and county elections. ORDERS ISSUED AFFECTING DELIVERY OF RURAL MAIL. Persons using rural routes in Mani towoc county must use one of the four teen kind of boxes recommended by the government.

D.” and the number of the route. COUNTY PERSONS WHO WERE SEEN IN THE CITY THIS WEEK. W. C. Maertz, of Reedsville, transact ed business in the city Friday last. Mr. and Mrs. C.

CLOSE OF LAKE SHIPPING IS FAST APPROACHING The close of the lake shipping season is approaching and by the end of the present month the Manitowoc winter fleet will be docked and the shipyard again be basy. So far only four vessels have completed the season bat return ing boats from lake ports will not go oat again, with the probable exception of some large steamers. Harbor Master Anton Johnson estimates that from 70 to 75 boats of all classes will findaccom modations at this port for the winter. If his estimate is correct then this year's winter fleet will be the largest in the history of Manitowoc and will be the source of a large distribution of money.

The following communication from Win. and Reiuhard Rahr will be of in terest to the Shove bank creditors: ‘ To the creditors of the T. C. Shove Banking Company: “You have doubtless been informed by public notice published in the Mani towoc Herald that the undersigned haye been required to pay into court for your benefit a little more than S3OOO. The money is now on deposit with the clerk of the Circuit Court at Green Bay. It is right and it is our desire that all the creditors alike have the benefit of this deposit ami not that it be distributed to a few. The amount payable to ach will, of course, be small. It is im portant, therefore, that the expense of proving claims, tiling them at Green Bay, receiving dividends and distribut ing the money, be reduced to a mini mum. With this end in view we have arranged with Mr. P. J. McMahon, clerk of Circuit Court of Manitowoc County, to provide the necessary blanks, make out the proper proofs, file them at Green Bay, receive the money there and pay it out here, all for 25 cents to be by each claimant at the time of swear ing to his proofs. There are still several mouths allowed for the making and filing of these proofs, but it is best that the work proceed at once. We, there fore recommend that each creditor call upon Mr. McMahon as soon as practic able, at his office in the Court House at Manitowoc, and make the necessary affidavit under the arrangement above stated. All creditors who fail to present their claims at Green Bay within six months next following the Kith day of September last will not be permitted to participate in the distribution of this fund. When that time expires those who have complied with the order of the court will take the entire fund. “Dated Manitowoc, Wis., Oct. 31, ’Ol William Rahk. Reinhardt Rahr. Christian Science.

WILL BENEFIT THF DISTRICT SCHOOLS-1 Manitowoc will Receive More than $14.- 000 Paid Out. ' INTRICATE SUBJECT MADE VERY CLEAR. University and Normal Schools Receive Lit tle of the Large Increase shown by Tax Apportionment. The following communication has been written by a man familiar with the subject; Editor Pilot:—"Much has been said and written anent the recent apportion ment of state taxes for school purposes among the several counties hut much of what has been said has tended to con fuse rather than make clear the reasons for the increased state tax. The matter is not new to the columns of The Pilot, but I believe readers will welcome furth er light on the subject. The following table compiled by the Wisconsin State Journal shows how the state taxes recently apportioned will be distributed among the different institu tions of learning in the state. The dill' erent beneficiaries and the amount each will receive compared with the amount each received last year are shown: 1(102. 1901. (traded schools, chapter cm. laws of iixii s*kmxi One mill tax. common school Income, chapter 1,072. laws of ISOS . 1,438.284 000,(XXI Normal schools, chapter 370. laws of Ih.II 215.000 190,000 state nnlveraitv. chapter IBS. laws of 1901 289.000 208.000 Free high shools, chapter 345. laws of 1001 125,000 90.1XX1 Interest on certificates of indebtedness, chapter 200, laws of 1898 157,570 157,870 Totals $2.282,854 $1,335,570 "It will be seen from the foregoing table that the total increase of taxation for educational purposes is $947,384 of which $806,384 will be apportioned to the district schools of the state in De cember 1902 in accordance with the fol lowing provisions of chapter 115 of the laws of 1899. "The school fund income which shall have been received up to and including the first day if December, including the amount to accrue from the one mill state tax provided for by section 1073 a. to be collected by the several counties of the state before the first Monday in Feb ruary next succeeding the date of such apportionment, shall be apportioned by the state superintendent between the tenth and fifteenth days of December in each year. Such apportionment shall be made among the several counties, towns, villages and citie-- according to the number of chi! Iren in each, over the age of four and under the age of twenty years, as shown by the reports made to the state superinteudtyit for the year preceeding, ending June BOth. The law then specifies the things that must he done in the town, village or city to en. title the school thereof to participate in the apportionment. ‘‘Of the remaining $141,000 of the in crease, $60,000 of it goes to the graded schools which up to this time have been without special aid or attention from the state department of public instruc tion, $85,000g0 to the free high schools of tiie state and the remainder of tin* in crease or only if)6,non goto the support of the .State University and the State Normal schools. So that out of the to tal increase in the state tax all but $16,• o()o will be returned by the state to the people to help support the schools in the country districts and in the villages and cities, and while the tax payers of -Mani towoc county must bear their share in paying this increased state tax to the ex tent of $14,006 it should be a consolation to them to find that more than this amount will be returned to Manitowoc county hv the state when the apportion ment is made next year.
