Watertown Republican.
WATERTOWN. WIS,, NOV. 23, 1887.
thanksgiving proclamation.
Through the goodness of Almighty God,
health, peace, prosperity, and security to person
and property have been accorded to the people
of Wisconsin the past year, and our industries
have received abundant rewards. Because of
these benefits it is due that we reverently, and
with sincere hearts, return thanks to Him for
Hir. blessings.
Now, therefore, in accordance with the procla
mation of the President of the United States. I,
Jeremiah M. Rusk, Governor ot the State of Wis
consin, do hereby appoint Thursday, November
24, 1887, as a day of public thanksgiving and
praise, and I recommend that on that day the
people of this State abstain horn their usual vo
cations, and meeting in their accustomed places
of worship, return thanks for the innumerable
blessings bestowed upon them by the Supreme
Ruler, and that they remember by substantial
benefactions and kindly deeds, the poor and af
flicted among them.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my
hand and caused the Great Seal of the
State to be affixed. Done at the Capi
[seal.] tol in Madison, this 27th day of Octo
ber, in the year of our Lord one thous
and eight hundred and eighty-seven.
By the Governor:
Ernst G. Timme, Secretaryof State.
At the recent election in New York
city, there were 333 candidates for office
and the average cost of the campaign was
$3,000, making nearly a million dollars
altogether. The party managers assessed
each candidateinacertain amount for the
nomination. The candidates for the su
preme court were assessed $20,000 each,
and the successful one spent $40,000. The
comptroller was assessed $15,000 and
spent nearly $40,000, of which he collected
half from public contractors. The presi
dent of the board of aldermen paid $2,000
for his nomination, the coroner $5,000
and each civil justice $5,000.
The election expenses are mostly legiti
mate, so-called, consisting of printing and
posting circulars, the hire of halls and
bands, and the widespread treating of the
free American voter. It is evident from
this showing that a poor man and honest
stands a very poor chance of a nomination.
As long as nearly a million dollars is
needed to carry on a campaign, men who
must be put up, or men who
get money from contractor!
jwud Gibers who seek jobs at public ex
pense. * Tffe i managers of New
York claim that they never assess can
didates for judicial positions, but it is not
denied that the Democratic managers put
a very high figure on every judgeship.
The danger in all this increasing cost
of elections, this assessment of candidates,
is not alone in the exclusion of a poor
man from office, but in giving public
plunderers an immense power. Since
money is a first object, the candidate of
public plunderers who are ready to open
their fat purses to the widest extent, must
stand a very good chance of getting pub
lic office. It is not reassuring to think
that the controller, who in a way passes
on the accounts of contractors, had a large
part of his campaign assessment paid by
two contractors to whom he can, if he
chooses, show favor at the cost of the
people. More republican simplicity and
certain honesty, and fewer brasss bands,
is the need of the hour in political cam
paigns.—Milwaukee Sentinel.

In fifty-tour counties in the State of
New York the Republicans polled more

At a convention of cigar manufactur

The resolution was a signal for a lively

There is a row in the State University
growing out of the hazing of a student
named Rosenstaengel, whose father is a
professor of German in the college.
Twenty of the hazers were arrested and
fined, and the whole crowd concerned in
tbe affair, numbering fifty, have been
called upon by President Chamberlain to
apologize to Professor Bosenstaengel for
their misconduct. The hazers are not
inclined to make tbe apology, and severe
measures are said to be contemplated
with regard to them.
The winter quarters of Barnum’s cir

New York World: Free and honest
elections are the conditions precedent to
all other political reforms. To secure
them the first step is to take the control
of elections out of the hands of the “strik
ers” and “bummers.”
Cleveland Leader: If the present
administration, with the aid of the South
ern statesmen, succeed in the plans which
they say they are determined to carryjout
this winter, the history of the Polk ad
ministration may soon repeal itself.
A CIRCULAR has been issued announc
ing the appointment of W. A. Scott,
former superintendent of the Madison di

road, to the general superintendency of

Omaha road.

Commenting on the fact that Prohibi
tionists in New York have again suc
ceeded in delivering the state into the
hands of the whisky Democracy, The
New York Times says that “the obvious
lesson” for Republicans is that they must
adopt a definite and consistent policy,
and suggests high license or a high tax,
with local option, as “their best hold,”
the minimum limit of the tax to be uni
form throughout the state and the re
ceipts to go into the local treasuries.
This method of dealing with the liquor
traffic is now generally regarded as ihe
wisest and most practical, as has been
evinced by the Republicans in many
states, notably in Wisconsin.

The county board of supervisors baa
been in session since Tuesday last and
will probably continue in session during
all of the present week. All of the bills
of the county officers show a reduction of
over one-half from bills of a similar na
ture hitherto presented by these officers.
The sheriffs bill this year is less than
$2,000, as against over SIO,OOO in 1885
and nearly $6,000 in 1886. The county
clerk’s bill for postage and express charges
this year is s2l, against $54 for last year
for similar expenses; the clerk of the
court’s is $24, as against $64 for last year.

In the matter of the county printing,
this year’s experience has shown that
there is no saving for the county in let
ting it to the lowest bidder, but this is
explained by the fact that the county
board cannot control but comparatively
little of the printing; so that for another
year only the printing and publication of
the proceedings of the board will be let
by contract. That ther printing bills this
year are nearly SSOO higher than usually,
is also explained by the fact that the late
county clerk, just before vacating his of
fice, ordered about S3OO worth of printing
done for which he had no use whatever.
While the ordinary expenses of the
county have been lower than for many
years past, and consequently the taxes
ought to he very materially reduced, it is
reported that a combination has been
formed by which a grand raid on the tax
pavers is contemplated, in voting aid to
different cities and towns for bridges and
drainage. This question ought to be
thoroughly investigated, and every mem
ber of the board, before he votes in favor
of any such aid, ought to satisfy himself
that there is not some “steal” at the bot
tom of the matter.
A resolution looking towards heating
the court house by steam has been intro

certain quarter, are so filled with coal gas
as to be uninhabitable for the officers.
