There is every evidence that another bunco game has teen practiced on the voters of Wisconsin. Some day the people may come to their sense. “A house divided against itself cannot stand”. The present status of the Re publican party in Wisconsin is most en couraging for Democratic success in l!to4, ______ The Legislature has repealed the law requiring candidates in elections to file a statement of expenses incurred. The law has been in fact a ‘‘dead letter ' since ‘‘lke” Stephenson, La Follette’s financial backer, refused to obey it. One effect of the defeat of the exemp tion of credits tax measure will be to withdraw money from the city. The man who has money to loan is not going to pay a 2 i**r. c ent lax in the city when in tie- towns the rate is far lower. Mani towoc snffeis as a natural following. The beef packing houses operating in the state of Missouri were convicted re cently of maintaining a trust in viola tion of law and were fined fa,ooo each. They paid the sum promptly and as promptly raised the price of teef 2 cents a jKjnnd. It doesn t require an expert mathematician to figure out in this in stance who "pays the freight." Today the independent man is not the millionaire, not the manufacturer, not the individual that is working for a weekly stqiend, but the man on the farm, who grown the things that the world mint have in order to live.

Milwau kee Journal It in gradually dawning on the people of the state the great mistake that was made when the republicans were con tinued and hoisted into power. While loud in profession of sympathy for Gods patient poor, they are manipu lating matters ho as to increase the rate of taxation, the burden of which is to lie borne by the man of small means who can illy afford to carry a greater load. The Assembly killed the bill exempt ing credits from taxation, a measure re commended and js-rsonally endorsed by members of the State Tax Com mission who are paid so<ioo per annum by the Slate to make a study of the subject of taxation, Gov. La Follette's disapprov al of the bill was all sufficient to a ma jority in the Assembly and the wise counsel of the Tax Commission was ig nored. Consequently, interest rates will advance and the debtor class will fie made to bear the burden. The .Sen ate passed the bill by an almost unani mous vote. * All glory to the boys iu blue who fought in the cause of freedom. All glory to the younger boys iu blue who took up arniH against Spanish tyranny and misrule! Let Decoration day le fittingly observed and with Mowers be spread the graves of those who have joined the mightier hosts. But let us learn from the <lay the lessons of peace, knowing full well that her victories are more prof* nnd than those of war. for they make for the kingdom of Heaven on earth the universal brotherhood of man State School Superintendent Cary has awarded the state township library con tract worth $45,000 for the year, to the Eau Claire B*.ok and Stationery ()otn pany, which is the Wisconsin represen tative of the Ginn Book Company of Chicago, a trust corporation that con tributed *>oo to the personal campaign of the governor for renomination in ex change for support of La Follette to en compass the defeat of L. D. Harvey former state superintendent of schools. The awarding of the $45,000 contract to the Ginn Company is significant. And it is reform. An undeniable truth was uttered by Grover Cleveland when he said the other night: ‘T, believe that among the nearly 9,000,000 negroes who have been Intermixed with our citizenship there is still a grievous amount of ignorance, a sad amount of yiciousness and a tre mendous amount of laziness and shift lessness. I believe that these condi tions inexorably present to the white people of the United States, to each in his environment and under the mandate of good citizenship, a problem which neither enlightened self-interest nor the higher motive of human sympathy will permit them to put aside." Gov. La Follette met with a rebuff when the Assembly, Friday by a vote of 54 to 37 refused to adopt the measure providing for the appointment of a Railway Rate Commission. The strong protest made against the bill by leading shippers and business men throughout the Hfate could not be ignored by even adherents to the La Follette policy of ‘‘rule or ruin” and the Assembly right ly killed the bill. The character of the men who made up the opposition was such as to impress onu with a convic tion that the Railway Rate Commission would tie dangerous to the business in terests of the state. Charles Bedell of Beloit, who is the manager of this district for the Cham, pion Harvester Company, has made a discovery that will revolutionize the world’s tool business. He has invented a process whereby malleable iron can be converted Into tools as serviceable as steel. The process has teen studied by others for half a century without success. The process is quick and looks simple. Mr. Bedell takes a piece of malleable iron and sharjienH one end. Then he subjects the iron to an intense heat after which he merely drojm it into a solution. When the iron cools the sharpened end possesses a hardness that enables it to cut shavings big or little, from other iron as easily as does the test of steel. Htoneworker's tools have teen made from this product and have done very efficient work. Hszors of a miperior quality, chisels, hatchets, planes and bits have also teen manufactured and have stood the test. The discovery will prove of great value. Bishop Huntington, of Central New York, feels that hell is being nuduly neglected by the clergy. In a mid teuten sermon in Syracuse March 22, he expressed his convictions that there was a place for hell, and that it was there, and that self-indulgent persons whose habits and conduct were not good would some day have a painful personal exjierience of it. Hell has at times leen much overdone. It has teen described as hotter and more contin uous than the human imagination can endure, and overmuch freedom lias teen uses! in forecasting its population. No hell that contains unbaptized infants or persons who died casually and the unin tentionally unregeuerate will wash in these times. An eternity of hell as a consequence of misconduct of limited continuance also seems to modern minds an improbable disfiensation. But the Idea that evil doers who man age to avoid punishment in this life are going to get off altogether does not commend itself to the average observers sense of fitness. Almost everyone be lieves in Gisl and every intelligent be liever in God must telieve in eternal justice, Somewhere, somehow, the odds come even and all crops are har vested. Without hell, or its equivalent we average observers cannot see how final justice is going to be dune. A good deal of the time the way of the transgressor is hard in this life, but some transgressorrs play so ably as to elude all obvious |>enlities, and make a show of having a gissl time as long as SCOTT’S EMULSION Scott’s Emulsion is the means of life and of the en joyment of life of thousands of men, women and children. To the men Scott’s Emul sion gives the flesh and strength so necessary for the cure of consumption and the repairing of body losses from my wasting disease. For women Scott’s Emul sion does this and more. It is i most sustaining food and tonic for the special trials that women have to bear. To children Scott’s Emul sion gives food and strength for growth of flesh and bone and blood. For pale girls, for thin and sickly boys Scott’s Emulsion is a great help. Bend fu.-free sample.

The action of the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin, after two years of deliberation, in electing Pro fessor Charles A. Van Hise to succeed the late President Charles Kendall Adams, is meetig with favor throughout the state. The caution which the Board has exercised in its selection is commensurate only with the importance of the position, and it establishes a good precedent for future Boards. The sel ection of a president for a University such as that of Wisconsin involves great responsibility. Beside effecting the edu cational interests of the state, it also affects those of the nation to a consider able extent. There is not a school, pub lic or private, city or country, in Wis consin that is not more or less under the influence and inspiration of the Univer sity, the policy of which is, to an almost unlimited extent, shaped by its presi dent, and the action of the Board, in taking sufficient time in making its decision is justified by the excellence of the choice. PreHident-elect Vhti Hi*e conie3 to the position with the maturity of profound preparation ami broad experience in uni versity work. He ifi a graduate of Wis consin University and has received the highest degrees which the institution confers. During the past twenty-two years he has been a member of its facul ty, at present he holds the position of professor of geology in tne University, ami ho is a non-resident lecturer in that subject at Chicago University. For a considerable period of time, he has been connected with the Wisconsin and United States geological surveys. He is the author of several publications which contain valuable contributions to science. He is a consummate scholar and his reputation as a scientist is inter national. Being a native of the state and an alunmns and a member of the faculty of the University, he is thorough ly familiar with the affairs of the Uni versity and the state, whose creature and servant the University is. He is a man of literal opinions and remarkable physical and intellectual energy. Being in the prime of life, he still has his test years to spend in the service of the Uni versity; and with the students the alumni and the people of the state re posing confidence in him at the outset, the institution promises to prosper under his administration. The following testimonial was re ceived from Mr. John W. Young, an old soldier and highly respected citizen of Lincoln, 111., who says, 'T had a severe cough and cold and I decided to get some kind of medicine.

It is u.n outrage on health and decency that Brookline, Muss., the richest town in the world, should not be able to af ford decent books for its school chil dren. “Is this economy? Economy is all right in its place, but should it be thoughtof when health and cleanliness are at stake? Someone is to blame. Who is it? It does no good to com plain to the headmaster. We are told that for economy's sake the superin tendent has decided not to buy any more books for school use before next September.” The speaker was a member of the class of 1903, in the Brookline high school, and has been using one of the books which have caused so much crit icism and comment throughout the town. The books referred to are Burke’s “Conciliation,” the “Immen se?,"by Strom, both of which have been distributed to members of the sopho more and senior classes. The fact that millions of germ breed ing microbes might be hidden among the pages has brought about a storm of censure. Immediate action will be taken to investigate, and undoubtedly the books will be collected from the pupils. Pupils are quite indignant, but refuse to allow their names to be used in connection with the controversy. Superintendent of Schools George I. Aldrich was surprised that such a state of affairs existed, and knew nothing of the matter. Be said that he had no knowledge that the books were in the condition described, and asked whether it was fair to presume that Brookline would father such a stale of affairs when money is spent so generously for the schools.

A correspondent of the London Ex press in Paris describes his.experiences in. trjing to change a sovereign ith the king's head on it for French mon ey. The first place was at a stall of a leading Parish bookseller. “It is not good,” said the woman be hind the counter. “Yes, it is,” was the reply. “It is an English sovereign and is worth 2j francs.” "Ah, no; it is a medal.” “No, no; good English money.” “But I have not seen one like it, I am afraid.” "Never mind whether you have seen one like it. It is the head of Edward, the new king, and the gold is. g00d..” “No, no. I want to see the queen’s head, and then L will take it.” Finally the woman, said she would give 20 francs for it. Four other peo ple who were tried argued in a similar manner, and were allaf raid to take the risk.

OLIVE OIL IN ARIZONA. ■ omethlnK About the- RlaeofaGrMtt Industry In the Southwestern Country. Olive oil is now being shipped by the ton from the Salt River valley of Arizona and the business is on the boom, says a I’hoenix report to the Washington Star. The entire valley is becoming dotted with olive orchards, and at this season of The year the trees are covered with thousands of tiny star-like buds, which will soon be followed by the fruit formation, which when matured on the tree will amount to hundreds of pounds of fruit. Olives remain on the trees until they are thoroughly ripe before they are picked to have the oil squeezed and pressed from them. When the olives are ripe it requires a large; number of hands to pick them, for the work must be done quickly. This is usually done by spreading large canvas sheets around the trees upon which the pickers throw the olives as they are plucked off the branches. Once they are picked the fruit is carried to the crushing machine, which breaks tlie fruit up much as apples are crushed for cider. The pulp is then put into a machine which presses the juice from it, which runs off into a tank, where by force of gravity the oil proper rises to the top and ia skimmed off and put away for sev eral months to settle before it is bottled ready for market. It re quires about 75 pounds of fruit to produce a gallon of oil.—Washington Star. TYPICAL RUSSIAN PRISON. Tbr Monastery of Soumilhl Wliieh la Used for OlTr<naea Concern ing UellKtou. An interesting description has been published in a Vienna newspaper of a monastery at Sousdul, in the Russian province of Vladimir, which is used as a prison for priests and laymen who are guilty of religious offenses. Pris oners are sent to Sousdal only by spe cial decree of the czar, who, however, accepts the advice of M. Pobiedonos zeff. the procurator of the holy synod of the orthodox Greek church. According to a recent report there arc about 120 prisoners there,andi they include two princes, one count, two barons, one general, four bishops, 16 common soldiers, 52 officers, 124 priests and one shoemaker. They are treated with severity, says the London Ex press, and undergo solitary confine ment in gloomy cells. Many prisoners become insane after a brief period, while the weaker ones soon die from want of light, air and proper nourish ment. The prisoner most recently sen tenced is a priest named Cvietkoff, and the offenses for which he was sent there are typical. Cvietkoff disputed Hie holy synod’s right to rule abso lutely over the church as a whole and advocated the formation of a council of clergy to advise and to a certain ex tent control the synod. This sufficed to bring about bis sentence to life Im prisonment at Sousdal. DOG WITH GOLD TOOTH. Phllmlrliihln Canine- of the “nail” Ureed Hum Itrmarkable Month Adornment. A well-known Philadelphia pet stock dealer some years ago hit upon a very odd and effective way to iden tify a dog, says the Philadelphia Rec ord. The owner of this dog called on him and said: “.Jack, my valuable bull, is running away nil the time. Ro far he has been traced and found in each of his flights, but it has been amatter of difficulty, and I am afraid that some day he will bo irretrievably lost be cause of the lack of some positive and striking mark of identification.” “You want,” said the dealer, “a good identifying mark? Well, I’ll tell you what to do. Oo to a dentist and have a gold crown put on one of the dog’s front teefh. The crown won’t hurt the tooth; on the contray, it will preserve it; and always it will be a mark whereby your dog will be readily known.” The other did ns the dealer advised, and since then there have appeared from time to time advertisements In the newspapers that began; “Lost —A bulidog with a gold front tooth.” _____ _____ Americans llt-ulnit Contracts.
