WIS LENT NEARLY OVER The Lenten season closes on Saturday night and Eastertide opens on Sunday. Lent is peculiarly a Catholic custom, yet in this country, its spirit steins to pervade all religions, indeed people of no religion. Society folks siezo upon this period of religious introspection not so much forthhe purpose of introspection as for a respite from the exacting follies incident to a gay life, Somepersons, who wish to tie known as society people, vo into retreats at convent' at this season of the year; they do so because it is a fad, a novelty, what they believe the proper thing. Of course there can he no harm come from this practice and if the benefit is but passive and not active, it serves a laudable purpose, inasmuch as it keeps them from over indulgence in gayety. Soon, however, the restraints of Lent will be over and society can again plunge into the frivolities of butterfly existence. THE COURTHOUSE PROJECT The new County board will lie called to pass upon the question of issuing bonds for the erection of a court house worthy of the wealth and dignity of ttie county. The committee chosen by the late board to secure plans and specifica tions, has completed its work, and the reisirt will Is; made at the spring ses sion of the board. No taxpayer is op posed to the proposition of building a new court house. The urgency of the need is apparent, therefore no objection nor no jealousy should le jiermitted to interfere with carrying out the pro gramme. Tiie farmers who reside in the rural districts, have pride in the position they occupy of leaders in agricultural pursuits, hence wish to give concrete evidence of the fact in their public buildings. The spring session takes place in May, and it should be a part of the work of the Imard. to i arry the court house pro ject through, by adopting a design, and authorizing the issuance of isinds to meet the necessary expenses. PRESIDENT'S MILWAUKEE SPEECH President Roosevelt's speech in Mil waukee delivered last Friday before the Merchant’s and Manufacturer’s asso ciation, on trusts, was simply a bill for votes. The president's attitude on these great combinations of capital, is to regulate them, through the process of internal law. This has been at tempted through tie* Sherman anti trust law the Interstate Commerce commission has been at work for years, endeavoring to put a stop to illegal business methods, but no adequate law has yet been devised up to now and none will lie except through the reduction of tariff schedules. President Roosevelt began his address with the following proposition: 1 think 1 speak for the great majority of the American js-ople when I say that we are not in the least against wealth as such, whether individual or cor porate; that we merely desire to sis* any abuse of corporate or combined wealth corrected and remedied , that we do not desire the abolition or destruction of big corporations, but, on the contrary, recognize them as being in many cases efficient economic instruments, the re sult of an inevitable process of economic evolutions. In the above paragraph the admission is male that trusts are here to stay as f-.r as the Republican party is con cerned, and that as a palliative to tin* demands of the vast majority of the people some slight attempt will Is- made to correct glaring abuses. Nothing can be plainer than that a policy of non interference with continued amalga mations of capital will be inexorably adhered to, hence trusts can continue to thrive, protected by law under the guise of prosperity. The president says without subterfuge, "we recognize them as being in many cases efficient economic instruments, the result of an inevitable process of economic evolu tion.” Mr. Roosevelt could say no different if h- desires to be elected to office again, because he simply must cater to the interests which promoted his ambition to hold and continue in his exalted position. There is no hedg ing from this fact. In bis Milwaukee utterance the presi dent admits as we have said trusts are not wholly immaculate, but have been •onvicted of abuses. To remedy these, particularly the giving of rebates, he says: Congress, having bail its attention drawn to the matter, enacted a most important anti-rebate law, which great ly strengthens the interstate commerce law. This new law prohibits under adequate penal'xes the giving and as well the demanding or receiving of such preferences, ami provides the pre ventative remedy of injunction. The vigorous administration of this law, and it will t>e enforced, will, it is hoped, afford a substantial remedy for certain trust evils which have attracted public attention and have created public un rest. This is all very good as far as it goes, tint is it possible for any legislation to be enacted which will prevent this abuse. Men in their individual capa cities are honest, but when they are massed into corporations it takes away individual sense of honor therefore trusts have no compunction of con science in evading any provision which may be enacted to prevent unlawful acts. The men who make national laws are able, the corporations seeking to evade them are abler, hence are al ways successful. Congress may enact anti-rebate laws, but corporations handle their own books and they can evade such laws without the possibility of detection. Now, then, the president laid es pecial emphasis on publicity. This method of finding out how trusts con duct their business would lie wise if it were jsissible to get an adequate and truthful account of thei* business which we doubt. The one great and sure remedy for the trust evil a revision of the tariff does not appeal to the president; he ignores it as impracticable, yet the wisest political economists are almost unanimous in the view that through a revision of the tariff and the conse quent expansion of competition can trusts be dealt with. THE CONFERENCE COMMITTEE The senate and assembly have agreed to conference committees to bring about some understanding on the pri mary bill. Th# men who will represent the assembly are Messrs. Andrew of South Superior, Frear of Hudson and LeKoy of Marinette, while those who will act for the senate are Morse of Princeton, Whitehead of Janesville and Beach of Whitewater. It is as well to take a clear view of this question and not to be disappointed at the results ol the conference. The assembly, through Sjsiaker Lenroot. is represented by a committee unalterably op[K>sed to the referendum clause in jected into the assembly primary bill by the senate, and the senate committee is just as inexorable in its position, to in sist on the referendum clause. What will be the outcome V No harmony, no agreement. This, then, means that for this legislature no primary bill will lie enacted and that the caucus and con vention will still lie in the saddle. The assembly rejected the referendum clause or the amended assembly will at the instigation, we believe, of Gov. La Follette. In this the governor lost an admirable chance to test the value of his bill as well as to do something in the nature of constructive statesman ship. His action was impolitic, some people would call it ball-headed, and by the time the present session of the legislature closes, which will tie a)suit June 15. he will have the satisfaction of seeing a zero as far as ho will have been able to bring about any practical legis lation. ALL THE GOVERNOR ASKED Even a Republican pajier like the Re publcan of La Crosse writing of the senate’s action on the primary bill says, "There is nothing vague or uncertain about the measure its it stands to-duy. It is all that Gov. laiFolletfe and his lieutenants have contended for. It is tvs revolutionary as the most pronounced primary election advocate could pre- Consumption The only kind of consump tion to tear is "neglected consumption."

At the faintest suspicion of consumption get a bottle of Stott’s Emulsion and begin regular doses.

The only condition at tached is that the people of Wisconsin shall indorse so much of the measure as relates to state, congressional and legis lative officers.” SOME TIMELY CONCLUSIONS Interest is still rife in the mysterious death of Mr. Burdick, who was slain in his Buffalo home by some hand yet un known. From the tragedy, as dark a one. which has happened in this coun try, the Springfield, (Mass.) Republican draws some timely conclusions. The excerpt which we give is well worth re ailing and pondering on. The paper says: “If Pennell did no more than break up Burdick’s home, and was in nocent of the actual murder, yet he has been visited with immeasurable retri bution in his fate, for, if innocent of as sassination, he cannot now convince the majority of his fellow-men that on his hands theie was no blood. As for the woman upon whose weakness he had played with his attractive manners and his high education, her plight is as miserable as one could conceive. The whole wretched affair is a warning that those who play false to their most sacred vows court a degradation and a ruin worse than death. “The fact that Mr. Pennell was a Yale graduate should not prejudice any one against a college education. Nor should there be a disposition to believe that the revelations of the case neces sarily indicate a widespread or growing looseness among married people who are received in respectable society. Domestic relations in this country are really much purer, on the whole, than they were in the l*th century in Eng land, when a father like Lord Holland deliberately introduced his own son, the famous Charles Fox, to social vices in Paris, because he considered such things part of the education of an English gentleman. At the sume time, it cannot lie ignored that the growth of luxurious and idle living, the increase of mere pleasure seeking, exposes the wealthier portion of our people to those vices which have always atliicted a polite society. But the heart of the American home remains sound and pure, in spite of the occasional lapses which may or may not become known to the world.” Don’t Don’t get the notion that the curative jiower of a medicine exists in a name. It must le in the medicine itself. You may not have heard of Re-Go Tonic Laxative Syrup. It is not made of tigs liecanse the laxative principle of figs are the seeds, yet it is as pleasant to bike as figs are to eat and is a certain cur- for biliousness, constipation, in digestion and stomach trouble. The name is Re Go, which in Sanscrit means “good.” The merit is all in the medi cine itself. Sold by Henry Hinricbs, Druggist. H Very Low Kates to California and Return, Via the North-Western Line.
