PUBLISHED WEEKLY. BT J. E. JONES. Washburn, Wis., March, 23 1905 _ f - . - - *2 A YEAR, Advertising Rates made known on application. at tte post-office at Washburn 1 i as second-class tnai! matter. The objection being raised against Mayor Williams, of Ash land, who is seeking re-election, is that the “big fellows v are all against him and that he is driv ing manufacturing institution out of the place. He is a *‘bad. man” if the Ashland Press is to be be lieved—and that paper is usually reliable. But inasmuch as *no one has ever pointed out where anyone has paid more than their just proposition of taxes under the Williams administration, it naturally raises the question among disinterested outsiders, as to just what is the meaning of this hue and cry against the mayor of Ashland. The question of equal taxation has been fought in Wisconsin for many years, and the legislature has baffled with the problem as to how to make big. corporations pay their taxes. A tax commis sion is maintained at an enor mous expense to help adjust these matters. Under ‘the law no illegal tax can be made to stand in court, and it is not likely that any of the people in Ashland who are raising the question have been compelled to pay too much. It is more likely that they have oeen made to pay what they i eally should contribute to thepublic treasury. And because Mayor Williams has upheld this class of laws, and endeavored to shift the bur den of taxation somewhat from the small taxpayer to the large one, he is condemned and some well meaning citizens would have him defeated. Or in other words he has given equal justice to all classes, and this seems to be a crime in some minds. Thepleafor special privileges to a few of the rich may be all right, but most fair-minded people don’t seem to think that way and when such an issue is raised against a pub lic servant it simply proves that such an officer has remained true to the people—and the peo pie should re-elect him, as they . will unquestionably do with Burt Williams. The legislature in Colorado did a very commendable thing in straightening out the governor ship tangle in the manner they did, even if it did require three governors within twenty-four hours to reach the result. It was found that Governor Adams, the democrat, who held the of fice, was not legally entitled to it on account of election frauds, while there was a deep seated prejudice against Govern or Peabody, the republican claimant, in whose behalf very corrupt election methods bad been employed. It was really impossible to say which man had the most votes at the polls for the reason that there were election frauds of such magni tude that their exact extent could not be determined. So Peaoody was compelled to sign a resignation before being de clared elected governor. Then he was given the office, and after holding it part of a day hts re signation went into effect, and now Governor McDonald, who was elected as lieutenant govern or on the republican state ticket is in office, and is the permanent governor, and will finish the ter i McDonald has kept out of the controversy and was free from implication in the election frauds. As he is clean and up right in every respect there can be no moral objection to his hold ing the office. It was a round about way of doing the thing— bui after all it was a happy solution of a bad mess. Ale remains quiet in reference to the circuit judgeship, and Judge Parish will win in a walk. The candidates against him have been making but little'headway, and the result is almost a fore gone conclusion. The people of Bayfield comity should support Mr. Paiish. This talk of Mr. Alvord bjinga home man is not so bad, and home men usually should be supported, but ii the present instance the voters should examine into the public records of these men who are up for the judgeship and then they will find that Judge Parish is the only logical candidate in the field. All things being equal the home man should have the pre ference, but where the official record of the home man will not stand scrutiny then he ceases |to hold any claim on account of residence to local support. And that is the case exactly with Mr. Alvord, who aspires to the judgeship. Jack Deitz, the Sawyer coun ty man, who has held the officers off for a year, is still enjoying his retirement, and last week entertained a newspaper man and a photographer at his home. Dietz still holds the fort and will continue to do so unless a large party of officers go alter him, in which event he may be captured. As the logs of the Chippewa Lumber and Boom company must be moved this spring the matter will likely be brought to some sort of termination. Dietz has succeeded in making him self idolized by many people, while by others *he is regarded as one of the worst outlaws northern Wisconsin has ever produced. Professor Salisbury, of White water, who is a candidate for the position of state superin tendent of schools, is certainly making an aggresive campaign, and the high endorsements he is receiving would indicate that bm is in every way qualified for the office. But there is so little real interest in the affair that most of the voters will make a “a hit and miss mark on their ballots. He and Mr. Cary might just as well lay aside their, “teachery dig nity” and go out in the school grounds and shake dice to see who will hold the job. Little President Castro, of Venezuela, has a faculty of mak ing fusses that are altogether too large for the small country he governs. He is constantly in a row, most of his troubles seaming.to result frem bad financiering. He has countless foreign creditors whom he has been holding off for years and they are becoming so impatient that some of them may take charge of the affairs of Vene zuela at most any time. Castro is almost as bad pay as Mrs, Cassie Chadwick. The Iron River Pioneer is tilled with announcements of candidates for town offices. If Iron River would stop bucking against the progress of the county by its opposition to the creation of new towns and de vote itself to cleaning up some of the things that ought not exist there, then there certainly would be a less number of candidates, because the fat salaries would not attach to the different offices. The public grab bag at Iron River must become empty some of these fine days. Iron River is still agitating the turpentine factory proposition and it is quite likely such an in stitution will be started there. It will prove a big card for the place in case a plant is actually placed in operation. Pleasant and Harmless. Don’t drug the stomach to cure a cough.

Jndge Parish Accepts. To the People of the Fifteenth Jud rial Circuit of Wisconsin. Over three thousand of you have shown your continued confidence in me, after living among you for thirty years, by making me your non partisan candidate for circuit judge. Eighteen years ago when you first asked me to be your candidate for this high and responsible office, I was young in years and in experience as a lawyer, having then Ir en in practice but fifteen years. I hesi t, itt din accepting, until I learned that my experience was as great as that of any lawv r in the new circuit. Men of every political party, race, religion, nationality, trade, calling, business and profession, native and foreign born citizens, have now chosen me to bo their candidate, This nomination, so generous and so unanimous, by the whole people, with no local, political, religious or national color or bias, (of law abid ing citizens), coming without my asking, with no remark or promise of reward, with no financial help from any man or corporation, I ap preciate most highlv and gratefully accept. All the lawyers in every county in the whole circuit are supporting me save in two counties weere candi dates live, and in one of these two the only lawyer opposing me is the candidate himself. Several of the older and more cx > f penoticed lawyers who thought of running, upon that both the people and the bar desired that should'continue as judge, joined my other friends in my support, When the people and tin lawyers are sat.sfied with a judge, it is sel dom a lawyer can bo found to run against him. It is to the time honored custom of the people of Wisconsin of keep ing experienced judges upon the bench in their highest courts and in not experimenting with new and un tried men. that 1 am indebted to you for your hearty support. The result, at the election on April 4th next, I leave with you, my fellow citizens, with perfect confi dence that that you will give me a larger majority than ever before. I i remain, Faithfully Yours, John K. Parirh. Dated March 20th, A, D. 1905. (March 9th to March 30th) Notice to Log Owners.
