THE GOVERNOR’S FAIR SPEECH Gov. La Follette Delivers an Address at the Manitowoc County Exhibition FREIGHT RATES TOPIC OF DISCUSSION Owing To Bad Weather But A Small Audience Was Present — Speech Good On Thursday afternoon the governor appeared at the fair to deliver his ad dress. The weather was cold and had been threatening all day. A* a result bnt a small crowd was on the grounds, numbering not over 1400 The rough winds caused the manage ment to have the governor deliver his address In the agricultural hall instead of outside as bad been planned. As many as could, crowded in and with few exceptions the address of an hour and a halfs duration was listened to with interest. As at the other fairs the governor selected the subject of freight rates as the topic of his address. He said the railroad companies are quasi pnblic, being absolutely necessary for the business of today, a great many many priveledges have been given them, they can seize your land or home and put a railroad through it and mil lions of acres of land have been given outright to them by the federal and state governments, but for all these favors bestowed on them the munici pality has also rights in them. As far back as 1873 railroad rates were fixed at a certain amount in our state above which the companies can not charge. Bnt since then, while traffic has increased to a tremendous extent decreasing the cost of main tenance relatively, the rates have re mained the same on our statute book*. Bnt while Wisconsin has been thus backward other states have been more active and have established commis sions who together with the railroad companies revise the rates and reduce them if they deem it necessary. Wisconsin has been struggling for some time to create such a board but without success. But what is true of Wisconsin is also true of the other states. For ten years the state of lowa battled with the railroads and then it succeeded in putting a law on the statute books that is just, to the rail roads as well as the shipper. When the measure was pending before the lowa legislature, the companies bought members outright wherever possible or brought influence to bear on them, they threatened to not build another mile of road if the bill became a law. But finally it passed, was taken to the sup reme court of the United States and upheld and since then there has not a word of protest been uttered against it. The state of lowa is covered by a net work of railroads so that not a single farm in the whole state is over seven miles from a station. Tue lowa rates on most articles are much cheaper than the Wisconsin rates and yet the rail road companies in their report state that they are entirely satisfied. This same law the governor attemp ted to have placed on our statute books bnt the railroad companies and ship pers both fought it and finally defeated it. The reason the big shipper opposed uniform low rates was that he gets a rebate or is allowed to under bill his goods. This of course gives the large shipper who receives that rebate an advantage over the small shipper, and so they helped the railroad com pany in its fight, coming personally to Madison to influence the members of the legislature. Whenever you buy an article, yon the consumer, have to pay the freight that has been on that article, so if the freight is high you have to pay so much more. Same way if you ship an article, like hay or grain, to be sold in open market, the price that is offered you will be more or less in the inverse ration as the freight is higher or lower. So if you have higher freight charges to pay to Chicago than the farmer from lowa pays to ship to the same place then you receive so much less for your grain than he does. What a difference there is in the freight rates can be seen from the fol lowing tables showing the freight paid on the same article for the same dis tance hauled in Wisconsin and lowa.

The following tables are combinations of the preceding tables. Table A in a combination of class rates from 1 to 4 inclusive, and shows the average cost per hundred lbs. of shipping merchan dise in less than carload lots from Manitowoc to each of the 15 cities given. Table B is a combinatkm of the class rater from sto E inclusive, and shows the average cost per 100 lb s of shipping merchandise in carload lots f r jm Mani towoc to each of the 18 cities given. In order to fully understand what these tables mean, we will illustrate how the tables were built up. Take the class rates from I to 4 from Mani towoc to Cliutonville as an example. The rate for shipping merchandise in class I is 40 cents; class 3, 33 cents; class 11, 25 cents: class 4. 20 cents; making a total of 1 lb cents for shipping 100 lbs. in each class from Manitowoc to Clintonville. Dividing this llbcents by 4 gives us an average of 29.50 cents per 100 lbs. as shown under “Wiscon sin” in table “A”. The average lowa rate for an equal distance is obtained in the same way, i. e. by adding the rates from class 1 to 4 inclusive, which gives 67.58 cents; then dividing this by 4 gives the average rate of 16.89 cents for shipping 100 lbs. of merchandise in less than carload lots etc. on through both tables A and B. (It was best to compile these tables in this way in order to have a less number of tables to deal with.)

MEETING OF THE CITY COUNCIL Rail Road Crossing and Lake Shore Pro tection Considered. When the council was called to order Monday evening all the aldermen, ex cept Pbalen were present. The city at torney informed the council, that an ac tion had been commenced against the C. &N. W. R. R.. to compel them to open 14th slreet and put it into a con dition of usefulness. The railroad com pany maintains six tracks and a switch at that point, while the platform of the freight depot extends 28 feet into the street. The company has been repeat edly informed to comply with the city's request, but has finally flatly refused. The case will be tried in the January term of court. The mayor called attention to the fact that the city's business must be con ducted mure economically, especially as regards work that is paid for out of the ward funds, all of the wards with the exception of the sth and 7th being over drawn. The petition of the residents of 18th and Wollmer streets to have the water works system extended on those streets was referred to the committee. A petition for a sewer on 20th street was referred. The petition to have the water works system extended along Greenstreet be tween 10th and 14th was granted. The petition of the Western Toy Cos. for an alarm box was referred to the committee. Bids for improving South Bth street were received, .1. Trestek & Cos. for 1830 and C. Peters for $494, the latter bid not being accompanied by a check the mat ter was referred to the first ward com mittee. Tiie Park committee was authorized to have the pine trees removed out of the north side park. The Dry Dock Cos. petitioned to be al lowed to run a spur track into their yards. Oscar Lindholm was granted permis sion to run a private aewer to connect with the city system at 19th and Clark streets. Contractor Keith appeared before the council and said that the stormy weather was the cause of the slow progress being made in the placing of the protection piers. But with fair weather the job would be finished within two weeks. He encountered additional trouble in being compelled to run the pier through the old channel of the Manitowoc river where extra long piles are required. After allowing several hills the coun cil adjourned.

Ahrens of Cooperstown has been served with notice of suit commenced against him for SSOOO damages for injuring the character of Anna Wanna of the same village. The case is the re suit of gossip by which the plaintiff asserts her character has been injured.

If it will stay *vre it may do eome good, but a few years ago that at tempt was made and the scows floated away and settled on the south side where the last pieces can still le seen. MANITOWOC, WIS. SEPTEMBER 24,1903. WASHINGTON LETTER (FROM OUR REGULAR CORRESPONDENT) Washington, D. C., Sept. 21, 1903. As an indication of what one promi nent man thinks. Senator Clay of Georgia, who is in Washington this week “arranging for winter quarters” as h* puts it, says that his state, and he believes mott of the southern states will send delegations to the next national convention instructed to support Sena tor Gorman for the first place on 'die ticket. When aiJced what effect Mr. Bryan's opposition would have, the Sen ator replied, “None whatever. Why ray dear Sir, wo are sick and tired of seeing Bryan’s name in the papers. If the press of the country could only real ize that he is no longer regarded seri ously by the practical democrats, the newspapers would ignore him. As soon as the papen drop him, his occu pation, as self-appointed dictator of the democratic party, will he gone. We are nut paying any attention to him In Georgia. We have talked the matter over among ourselves and we have about concluded that Senator Gorman is not only the strongest man in the party we can nominate, hut we believe there is an excellent opportunity of electing him. Hi* democracy, hi* abil ity as a leader and his safe views on all the important questions which will fig ure in the coming campaign stamp him as the strongest man we have in onr party today. This estimate of Gorman is not confined to Georgia but it extends all the way from Maryland down through Virginia, the Carolina*, Flori da, Alabama and Louisiana.” Reports from the Northwest are to the effect that the people of that section republicans and democrats alike are anxious for tariff reform and one repub Mean Congressman, now in Washington, admits that were the democrat* to nom inate a safe man, sound on the money question and with conservative tariff reform ideas, he could give Mr. Roose velt a very close run in Minnesota. It appears that t'i .people of that section have at last awakened to the fact that the tariff on wheat was imposed merely to hoodwink the farmers and really doe* no one a penny’s worth of good, while it prevents the Minneapolis mills from grinding the thousands of bnshels of wheat harvested in British Columbia and deprives the northwestern railroads of the benefit of hauling both the wheat and the flour. The coopers would also be benefited could this wheat find its way to Minneapolis as they would sup ply the flour barrels, the lumbermen would supply the material for the bar rels and so oh, until a large number of northwestern interests would benefit di rectly or indirectly from free wheat. It is also desired that a general reciprocity treaty with Canada l>e effected. Of course such a treaty would be emphat ically opposed by the Eastern republic ans, but that very fact may augment the disaffection of those in tlie north west. Postmaster General Payne is under stood to have defended a defense of his action in removing Miss Todd, the Dela ware postmast' r, at the behest of Allee, the Addicks senator, which will enable the President to approve Payne’s course and avoid any rupture with Payne or Addicks. Although the Postmaster General told Miss Todd that she was re moved because she was personally ob noxious to Senator Allee, and although in the first interviews he gave on the subject he plainly showed that he l>e lieved the agreement entered into be tween the Delaware senators, whereby each was to control half of the federal patronage and use it to reward faithful henchmen, was ample reason for his having removed Miss Todd and replaced her with an Addicks politician; after the press of the country manifested un qualified disapproval of his action Mr Payne bethought himself of the advisa bility of alleging that Miss Todd was guilty of ' offensive partisanship” and alleged that reason in his report to the President. Of course, Mr. Roosevelt is too ardent a civil service reformer to tolerate a federal employee who was guilty of taking sides, even though she lie a woman, without a vote, and even though she took sides against a notori oils corruptionist who had brought dis grace on her state. Consequently ac cording to all reports, Miss Tisld will remain removed by order of the Presi dent, and Payne will once more escape the consequences of bis aids. General Frank D Baldwin, command ing the department of the Colorado, has just made an interesting report to the War Department in which he deals an other blow at the anti canteen move ment. General Baldwin says, “From a somewhat extensive observation as In spector general and as a commander of troops, I have l>een deeply impressed by the very marked difference in discipline and general contentment among the en listed men since the abolition of the canteen feature of the post exchange. If men are unable to get a glass of beer in a decent and orderly manner in th* garrison, they will resort to the vile brothels which cluster around the bor ders of the reservation, where they drink all manner of alcoholic beverages and often sink into debauchery and ruin.’’ In conclusion, the General quotes and endorses the words of his predecess or, General Funston, who said, “The recent legislation by congress, so far as this department is concerned, has had no effect except to lower the discipline of the army, ruin scores of good soldiers and fill the pockets of a lot of saloon keepers, gamblers and prostitutes.” The name* of the j>ersons indicted last week in connection with the Postofflce scandals have finally come out. In ad dition to Beavers and Machen, they in clude Eugene D. Scheble of Toledo, Ohio, James W. Erwin, assistant super intendent of free delivery for the terri tory west of the Rocky Mountains, Isaac S. McGiehan and George H. Hunting ton of the Columbia Supply Company of New York. It is shown by the*e in dictments that Machen and Beaver* shared the profits on a device attached to letter boxes in some cities, showing when the next collection will be made, that Machen and Scheble shared the profits on every letter box, and that McGiehan and Huntington shared with Machen the profits on every package mail box. The grand jury i now en gaged considering the legal end of the Postofflce investigation and it is expect ed that important indictments in this connection will be soon returned.

THE MANITOWOC COUNTY FAIR The Fair Closes its Gates This Year Showing a Deficite of About S2OO CARNIVAL INJURED FAIR SOMEWHAT Fair Very Interesting in Many Repect*. But Fakirs Were Missed Friday the fair closed and when all was checked up the management found that they were abont two hundred dollars to the bad. But thin is no sur* prise. In the first place the weather was against them, the rains dad made the roads almost impassable and caused heary damages in the county. And then a number of the city people as well as some farmers had left all their loons change at the carnival and not being allowed to jump the fence stayed at home. Thursday the gate receipts showed about 1300 to MOO people in the grounds while Friday as childrens day brought about 5000 people within the enclosure. The exhibits in manufactures and liberal arts hall were better and more numerous than for some years, the fruit display also was larger than last year even if this was a bad fruit year likewise the exhibits in agricultural hall were many and good. The machinery of the Smalley manufacturing Cos. and A. J. Anderson in operation on the grounds recalled the good olden times, and we would advise the dealers not only to keep it up but increase next year as it forms on# of the best ways of advertising that they can get. The Central Railway Cos. had a tent with products from northern Wisconsin and this attracted a great d* al of attention. There was a nice exhibit of horses bat the stock was less than usual, being composed of the beards of Christ Mutb, Hall, Kiel and Capt. Fulton. Christ lauded the pramiumon the herd they be ing a fine set of animals. There were but a few hogs there and no sheep. Next year the secretary must do soms per sonal soliciting to induce the merchants to make the halls interesting and then get the farmers to till every single pen they have with stock. The races were good, and good time was made in spite of all the rainy weather. Rut all mourn the fakirs were miss ing, the rainy weather caused most of them to liquidate and go out of business and then thev do not find that the two days fair warrants them in coming, the time being too short for the expense in cured. as a result the midway was very empty FVter Undress with sauerkraut ami weiners being the onlv attraction. The youngsters looked in vain for the carousel hut Stastnv had most likely got stuck in the mud and his hoby horses could not get there. Altogether the fair was one of the good old kind ami if a day more is added next year ami local interest worked up there is no rea*on why it should not make money.
