TUESDAY, AUGUST 14, 1100. üblished weekly and entered at the Poet Office at Wausauas second class matter. DEMOCRATIC TICKET. For President— WILLIAM J. BRYAN, of Nebraska. For Vice-President— 4DLAI E. STEVENSON, of Illinois. Will ex-Gov. Hoard succeed Senator Spooner as U. S. Senator ? Burnt W. Jones, of Madison, who fought Bryan four years ago, will vote and work for him this fall. Upon inquiry made by the Milwaukee Journal of Hon. Louis Marchettiof this city :ts to whether he would accept the nomination for Governor, Mr. Mar chetti replied that he could not do so. The special edition of the Milwaukee Sentinel reached our table this morn ing. It is one of the most elaborate editions, on the resources of Wisconsin, ever issued and is a credit to the Senti nel. The Wisconsin Valley part of the edition was compiled and arranged by L. A. Rose, of this city. Everyone should have a copy of the Sentinel’s special edition. A few of the republican papers are trying to make out that Hon. Neal Brown, of this city, will not support W. J. Bryan for -president this year. When the fellows who do the thinking for those journals, run up against Neal they will receive a jar equal to that of Ruhlin when he ran up against Fitz. No, you can’t have him. While Neal is an expansionist, he is a long ways from being a Mark Hanna expansionist and McKinley is too shifting to suit him. And as yet no republican has ex plained why the Philippines should not be treated the same as the Cubans. McKinley said in a message to Congress before the war with Spain, that forcible annexation of Cuba would be “crimin al aggression.” Neither he nor any oth er republican has explained why, if it would be criminal aggression in the case of Cuba it is not also in the case of the Philippine Islands. The two cases are precisely the same, and therefore the difference in the acts of the party in power in the two cases can not be ex plained. Hence they have not tried to explain it. One day while conversing with Wil liam J. Bryan, writes Phocion Howard in the August issue of Success, I asked him what he considered the greatest word in the English langauge. “Con tentment," he said, before I could catch a breath. “This world is full of discon tented men. Even some of the rich are not contented. The man who has contentment has the best gold that is to be secured in life. “Contentment is given to every man, but most men drive it away in the mad rush to gain things that ate beyond their reach. The man who can be eon tented with what he has is the man who finds all that life is worth living for.” The LaFollette followers insist that the republican state convention was a love feast. Of course, everything went lovely for “Bob,” and, undoubtedly, there was great rejoicing among the anti-machine crowd. Everything was cut and dried, previous to calling the convention to order. “Cully” Adams refused to recognize auy one but the faithful, therefore, what is kuowu as the “machine crowd” were barred out. Some of the more daring, tried to break in and miugle with the “faithful,” but they ran up agaiust a solid rock wall, vs it were, every time. This means that ex-Gov. Hoard, of “Beunett Law” fame, is again in the saddle and we should not bo surprised to see him rflhehing out for Senator Spooner’s position It is plain to be seen that La Follette and his lieutenants are not going to be able to down the old crowd, who have so long received ail the fav ors and beeu admitted into the import ant counsels of those who operated the machine, without a struggle. The only one way by which the “machine" republican can ever hop** to be recog nized again, is to defeat l*a Follette at the polls, aud if the reports circulated about the candidate are true, the “ma chines" would be justified in so doing. The convention, in Milwaukee, ou Wednesday, as was previously stated, was so perfectly in the control of La- Kollette that the business was transact ed during the afternoou and evening. He ba<l tt so arranged as to nominate himself for the office of governor, and the balance of the ticket is composed of the present state officers. King Humbert and. Italy. We put the King first, the country second, not because we believe the King should be put first, but because that is the actual condition. He is first because from his standpoint that is his proper plaee; anil because his positiou, his power, bis command of the army and navy, and all the prerogatives which he assumes to be his "by divine right,” enable him to take care of his own ambitions, and his own luxury, come what will to his country. Kings in Europe are not the absolute despots they were a few centuries ago, but though deprived of the direct power to take the lives, liberties and property of their subjects, they still have the means of doing indirectly, through par linients and officials, pretty near all that they could formerly do without circumlocution; for the royal favor is still a thing very strong to bribe the self seeker, ana to reward him for per sonal loyalty to the whims of the mon arch. Since the killing of King Humbert much has beeu said in his praise, and probably most of this praise was due him. He has been extolled for his kindly disposition, his charity, his sym pathy, and other good traits of charac ter. It is natural and right, ordinarily, that when death claims a man, we should speak rather of his virtues than his faults; but in the ease of a ruler, whether he be a King, or that more irresponsible autocrat, the president of a trust, justice to humanity requires that the whole truth be told about him. King Humbert was a man capable of sympathy with suffering when it came before his eyes. When he happened, as Kings and presidents of trusts sel dom do, to come in personal eoutact with human misery, he vyas affected by it as Kings seldom have beeu, and as presidents of trusts never have beeu so far as our information goes. Neverthe less Italy was, under his reign, an ex ceedingly ill-governed country. With the exception of Ireland, there was more want, starvation, illiteracy auil squalor; more hopelessness, discour agement and dispair; more beggars to the community, and more taxes to the square inchin Italy than anywhere else in Europe. These things may have had something to do with inspiring his assassin to the frenzy of giving up his own life in exchange for that of the King, for the assassin was an Italian, and had knowledge of these things, and of the actual cheapness of the repu tation which the King had earned as a lover of his people. The Washington Post, one of the leading republican papers of Washing ton, D. C., has this to say of the real designs of its party leaders, as con trasted with their pretenstions: “Why can not we be honest in our utterances touching the territories we have recently acquired? Really it would save time and trouble, to say nothing of life and treasure, to come out frankly with the announcement that we have annexed these possessions in cold blood and that we intend to utilize them to our profit and advant age. All this talk about benevoleut assimilation ; all this hypocritical pre tense of anxiety for the moral, social, and intellectual exaltatiou of the na tives; all this transparent parade of responsibility and deep-seated pur pose; all this deceives nobody, avails nothing, helps us not an inch in the direction of profit, dignity aud honor. We all know down in our hearts that these islands, groups, etc., are import ant to us only in the ratio of their practical possibilities. We value them by the standard of their commercial usefulness, and by no other. All this gabble about civilizing and uplifting the benighted barbarians of Cuba aud Luzon is mere sound and fury, signify* ing nothing. Foolishly or wisely, we want these newly acquired territories, not for any missionary or altruistic purposes, but for the trade, the com merce, the power, and the money there is iu them. Why beat about the bush and promise and protest all sorts of things? Why not be honest? It will pay- Asa matter of fact, we are not con cerned in the ethical or religious up lifting of the Filipinos. After all, the difference between a breech clout and a starched shirt front is a mere matter of climate aud personal opinion. Dis honesty, untruth, crime, and general wickedness are here in our midst—pres ent with us as a part of our daily life and growing with our growth. We need not go to the West Indies or the Philippines iu search of material for moral rescue. Our owu slums abound with opportunities for missionary zeal. Why not tell the truth and say—what is the fact—that we want Cuba, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and Luzon, together with any other islands iu either ocean that may hereafter commend themselves to our appetite, because we believe they will add to our national strength, aud because we hope they will some day become purchasers at our bargain counters ? We might as well throw off the pious mask and indulge ourselves iu a little honest candor. It will cost us nothing, and it may profit much. At any rate, we shall have the comfort and satisfaction of being honest with ourselves and the privilege of lookiug into the mirror without blushing." From our stand point the most signi ficant thing iu the foregoing article is not the evidence it furnishes, by con fession, of the criminal purposes of the republican party and its president. A criminal who has some conscience left may be reclaimed, but a crim inal who has brought himself to be lieve that wrong is right can do noth ing good except die. 'l’lie WashiDgtou Post brutally avows the criminal de designs of its party, and takes it for granted that all republicans are equally aware of them (which is untrue.) It is not unlikely that The Washington Post has judged the republicans of the whole country by corrupt samples that infest the city of Washington. For our part we believe that if all republican news papers should follow the example of the Washington Post, and be equally honest in avowing their party’s designs, there would not be enough votes east for McKinley this fall to prove that he was running. Men may be willfully blinded by partisanship; they may be mistaken iu their judgment as to* the cause and effect of a certain policy; they may think a policy wrong, but may hope for better counsels to guide their party. These things are all con sistent with honesty, amt the men who can be kept in a party by reason of such considerations as these could not be kept in it a moment if its leaders were all so blind to the difference be tween right and wrong as to be willing to avow their real purposes, fearing nothing from such avowal, but believ ing that all men are as eousieneeless as themselves. Scores McKinley. In an interview, published in the Baltimore American, George L. Well ington. republican I’. S. senator from Maryland, says "I am unalterably opposed to the re-election of President McKinley. Bryan is a better man iu every way than McKinley and I re jjard his election as essential to the preservation of the republic." On being asked if he had any objec tion to specifying why he was so bitter ly opposed to McKinley and why he was working to defeat him. he replied ; "Not in the least. McKinley no longer represents republican principles; his defeat is necessary to the proserv auceofthe republic, and, in addition, he has deceived and betrayed nie in my personal relations with him." Further he says: "While 1 still adhere to the original principles of the republi can party. McKinley lias departed from them. 1 am serving the party best when 1 oppose an unlit man, and be cause I believe that in the end the party will pro tit by McKinleys defeat. 1 consider McKinley is unfit because he is so weak anti vacillating that he can't stick to an opinion over uight. If he could know his own mind and be con sistent twenty-four hours at a time lie might do, but such a thing is impossible with him and for that reason he is un fit to be president.” “THE BETTER HALF AND THE OTHER HALF” Third sermon on the “Home Life” series, First Methodist Episcopal Church, Sunday evening, Aug. 19th, at 7:45. An attractive musical programme. COMMUNICATED. Minneapolis, Aug. 11, 1900. One of the features of the University summer school is the annual excnHon to the Dalles of the St. Croix, a rugged and picturesque region. Here nature has writ her story laige and plain. Large areas of eruptive rocks show the tremendous volcanic activity of eons loug ago. The elevations thus formed were gradually depressed until they were submerged beueath the vast in land sea which exteuded over southeru Wisconsin and Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico. While thus engulfed they were covered with deep deposits of sedimen tary rocks—shales, sandstone, etc., again uplifted, they were denuded by erosion until many of their rock forma tions were entirely borne away. Then came the great ice age which brought great masses of glacial drift forming the present physiographic features of the regiou, modified only by recent erosive agencies. First a great ice sheet pressed down from the Superior region toward the southwest extending an unknown distance into Minnesota, and bringing the character istic red sandstone of the lake region. Then came another great ice sheet rrom the northwest from the Red river valley distributing limestone debris. At this Eoint these opposing glaciers locked ornß, so to speak, anu contended for possession of the territory. While these gigantic antagonists were thus struggling for the mastery the pre glacial valley of the St. Croix river was filled with drift and lost, and the river was gradually settling down into its present channel whicli it has cut down to its present level in past glacial times. The disintegration of the rocks thus brought gives the present beds of red and grey sand or clay. The cutting of the chaunel has ex posed the various formations and made them easily accessible for study. Ac companying them are many curious or interesting features. Perhaps the most wonderful are the so-called “pot holes” resembling huge cisterns seooped out of the hard resistant rock high up on the shelves of the gorge. The manner of their formation is thus described : “It seems clear from a study of the locality that all of these holes have been formed by swiftly running water, whose swirling eddies, produced by the' un evenness of the rock floor, have carried loose sand and gravel round and round so persistently that great holes have beeu literally drilled into the hard crys taline rooks which formed the river bed. Each hole was then filled with a rotat ing column of water at whose ‘top the onward How of the river furnished power enough to keep it iu rotation, and at whose bottom pebbles and sand and boulders rolled round and round year after year, century after century— Dol ing the hole deeper and griuding the pebh'es smaller —until the river desert ed its task or accomplished the object of its toil. Untold thousands ot pebbles, imprisoned in these great mills of na ture, ground themselves to atoms on ly to lie replaced by as many others swept down by the Hoods as were those which preceded them—all used as slaves by the river as a great live monster to grind awaj’ this defiant obstacle to his progress.” Similar pot holes are now forming in the present river bed aud the operation can be watched so that the description is no fancy sketch. Five distinct river terraces are easily distinguishable, the highest 905 feet above sea level; the second, 810 feet; the third, 780 feet; the fourth, 750 feet; the tilth, 725 feet, and from 25 to 35 feet above the present water level. Abandoned channels of the river are seen, one of which, two miles long, now contains Lake Thaxter. Evidence is presented of former falls which may have been 50 or 100 feet high. A peculiar rock column, knowu as the Devil’s Chair, is seen on the right bank below the elbow in the gorge. There seems a slight inconsistency iu the name, since his majesty is not sup posed to have a material body aud is never represented as sitting. A little above, on the Wisconsin side, near the top of the ledge, is the Old Man of the Dalles, a face resembling somewhat the Great Stone Face seen in the White Mountains. These are but a few of the interesting features of this region set apart as an inter-state park. Instructors in geolo gy and botany accompany the excur sion to point out and explain what is of most interest and importance. * The Beaver Dam Argus brings out Hon. Joliu Ringle, of this city for Gov ernor. All that the Argus says about Mr. llingle is heartily eudorsed by the Pilot, and by the people iu general of our city. Mr. Ringle would make an ideal candidate. The following is what the Argus says: •‘At this time the names of many emi nent democrats are being mentioned for the nomination for governor at the com ing democratic state convention, and their availability and qualitications are being discussed, and in addition to the names already mentioned. The Argus desires to present for consideration by the convention, the name of the Hon. John Ringle of Wausau. We have known Mr. Ringle for many years, and can frankly say that no man in the state is better qualified and equipped for the cilice of governor than he is. "John Ringle was born in the town of Herman, this county, in 1848: his father was oue of the pioneers of Wis consin, having come here in an early day from Germany. John removed to Wausau in 1809. and has been indenti tied with the development and growth of northern Wisconsin for over forty years. He was county clerk of Mara thon county for six years, member of the assembly in '79, 'BO and *Bl, and state senator in *B3 ard ‘BS: be was the democratic candidate for state treasurer in 1877, and was a delegate to the dem ocratic national convention at Cinci natti in 1880. He is a man of ability, good judgment, and with his knowledge of state affairs, we believe, he would make one of the best executive officers Wisconsin has ever had. He is well known throughout the whole state as a man of sterling integrity and high character, and we believe his nomina tion for governor would be enthusias tically received by the entire democ racy of the state, and would add strength to the national ticket.” William Jexxingsßryan ani> Aolai Stevenson, were notified formally of their nominations for President and Vice - President. respectively. on Wednesday last, at Indianapolis It was a great gathering and one of the most notable in the history of the f nation. James 1). Richardson, of Ten nessee. notified Mr. Bryan who replied, accepting the nomination, and dealt solely with the question of imperialism. Governor Charles S Thomas of Color ado, notified Adlai E. Stevenson, who replied touching all planks of the plat form and give especial notice to im perialism as the paramount issue. Speeches ean be found on the inside pages of the Pilot. The democratic congressional conven tion, for the ninth district. will be held at Amigo tomorrow. The delegates from the county are : B. H.
