Dated Wausau. August 21. 1900. By order the Democratic County Committee made a, regular session, on the '’•lst day of July, 1800, LOUIS *’AB( BETTI, Chairman. E. B. THAYEU, Secretary. The allied forces have aiicceeded in reaching Pekin, China, and found the legations safe. The Cockran, Sc huts and Boutwell speeches have created consternation in the republican camp. The enthusiasm is ou and every day linds prominent men from other parties coming to the support of Bryan. Over S,tKK) men have been sacrificed anti $18*3,000,000 expended so far, by the U. S. in trying to pacify Filippiuos. The Negroes hissed Theodore Roose velt at a non-partisan colored meeting, held mi Boston last Thursday evening. The Boer war is ended say the Brit ish, \et Ust week Gen. l>e Wot defeated the British aud captured 4,000 prison ers. The Democratic State Convention will meet in Milwaukee tomorrow. It is a pretty certain thing that Louis G. Bohmrich. of Kenosha, will be the nominee for governor. Bolt well, because he has deserted SgcKiuley, is .said to be in his dotage, by republicans: but Palmer, who is equally as old, is a “grand old man,” because he will not vote for Bryan. J. L. Mahoney, of Janesville, is talked of as a candidal** for attorney general ou the democratic ticket. Mr. Mahoney is a tine lawyer and a general favorite ’when* he is known. The at torney generalship could not be placed in more competent hands. The republican papers arc taking great pleasure in publishing lists of papers, formerly democratic, that will support McKiuley and imperialism this year. Cau any hie named that uid not support McKinley four years ago ? Guess not. The following are r few noted repub licans who have come out for Bryan : l)r. H. Z. Leonard, consul to Clifton Falls, Canada, under Pres. Harrison. M. C. Collins, banker. Pcotone, 111. James Alexander, of Lockport, ill. Ex-Gov. A. J. Felt, of Kansas. H. C. Mueller, of Zanesville, Ohio. Paul G. isefaub, of Cairo, 111. M. C. Church,of Parkersburg, W. Va. John J. Valentine, president of the Weils-Fargo Express Cos. Two Republicans. Senator Hoar, iu his great speech, in the Senate, against the imperialistic policy of the administration said these things: “I believe, Mr. President, not only that perseverance in this policy will hie the abandonment of the principles up on which our government is founded, that it will change our republic into an empire, that our methods of legislation, of diplomacy, of administration must hereafter be those which belong to em pires, and not those which belong to republics; but I believe persistence in this attempt will result in the defeat and overthrow of the republican party.” Of McKinley’s assertion that because the American flag had been raised in the Philippine islands it should not be pulled down, Mr. Hoar said : ‘‘Mr. President, this is the doctrine of purest ruffiianism and tyranny. There is nothing of the Declaration of Inde pendence in it. There is nothing of the Constitution of the United States In it. There is nothing of the fathers in it. There is nothing of George Washington in it, or of Thomas Jefferson. There is nothing in it of old Virginia, or of the old South Carolina, or of the old Massa chusetts. If every territory over which the flag of a country has*once floated must be held and never shall be yielded again to the nation to which it be longed, every war between great and powerful nations must be a war of ex termination or a war of dishonor alike to the victor aud to the vanquished. * ***** i appeal from the spirit of trade to the spirit of lib. Tty. I appeal from the Empire to the Republic. I appeal from the millionaire, and the Iwjss, and the wire-puller, and the manager to the statesman of the elder time, in whose eyes a guinea never glistened, who lived and died poor, and who left to his children aud to his countrymen a good name far better than riches. I appeal from the present, bloated with mater ial prosperity, drunk with the lust of empire, to another and a better age. These remarks of Senator Hoar prove beyond doubt his convictions on the subject. If any one who has read that great speech failed thereby to be convinced of the terrible danger that lurks in the administration’s imperial policy, at least no one, be he ever so dyed in the wool as a partisan, can doubt the sin cerity of Senator Hoar iu his belief that his party,—the republican party, —is leading the republic to certain and inevitable destruction. And there is the wonder of it all ! For Senator Has decided, at last, that he loves his party better than his coun try and that he will help his party to remain in power, notwithstanding the malevolence of .that power toward the fundamental principles of our govern ment. Still, anyone who has read Senator Hoar’s reminiscences, recently pub lished iu a New York magazine, can not be very greatly surprised; for these “reminiscences” prove beyond a doubt that his love for his party amounts to an ungovernable passion. Senator Hoar stands convicted, upon his own confession, of treason to his country. While admitting that the policy of his party, if kept in power, will necessarily result in the destruc tion of republican institutions here, he deliberately chooses to aid iu that sub verti* n of republican government which he decries in the future and pro claims as sure to come. The guilt upon such a man’s soul is vastly greater than the guilt of the ignorant, and it is greater too than the guilt of such a republican as Hanna, who has not a conscience, to care for republican institutions, and who would doubtless prefer an empire. Hoar sins deliberately, knowing what he is doing, and fully conscious of the heniousuess of his crime. Hanna sins wantonly be cause his moral stature is so small that he does not care. Bui Hanna is sot the other republi can we would compare with Hoar. We have iu mind a different sort of man, —one who, like Hoar, is a republi can senator, who, like Hoar, discerns that his party’s policy involves sure death to republican institutions in this country, but who, unlike Hoar, loves his country better than his party, and is therefore going to support the Kansas City platform, because it condemns the imperial policy and because he knows, as everybody knows now, that Mr. Bryan is a man of deep convictions, who says what he means, and will do what he promises. This man is Sena toi Wellington, of Maryland. We wish every young man in the country would ask himself seriously this one question : “Which would I prefer to be, Senator Hoar, or Senator Wellington,—the man who loves his party better than his country, or the man who loves his country better than his party ?” It will do young men good to ask themselves this question, and to analyze their reasons for such answer as they may give to it. We clip the following interesting item from the Milwaukee Journal: The Missouri Valley Journal of Chamberlain, S. 1)., edited by W. T. LaFollette, a populist official, who ts a brother of the Wisconsin republican nominee for governor, makes the following statement re garding Wisconsin republican poli ties : A couple of weeks ago The Journal said R. M. LaFollette, of Wisconsin, would be nominated for governor, “in spite of the national administration,” and the Pukwana Reporter disputed our statement and claimed LaFollette had the support of the administration. Well, it's useless to argue a taunt with a man who makes an assertion he knows nothing about, but The Journal does not mind enlightening The Reporter to the extent of saving that all the tiddle wink pap-suckers in Wisconsin, from a fourth class stamp-licker up to United States senator, bitterly opposed his nomination for governor in 1898 and de feated him. And again in 1900 they al lied the whole McKinley office push of that state against LaFollette s nomina tion from May Ist until the middle of June, and when the machine editors and Hanna politicians found that he was carrying county after county, then they began advising all republicans to line up for his band wagon the same as the South Dakota insurgent republicans lino up for Kitiredge's political dray line. Senator Spooner, of Wisconsin, is considered a pretty good McKinley imperialist, but he concluded about the middle of June that he would pull out of the race for re-election to the United States senate and not allow LaFollelte's political trolley car to pass over his administration remains. R. M. LaFoi lette will poll 20,000 more votes in Wis consin next November than McKinley “in spite of the national administra tion.” and yet LaFollette may not be elected. See! K. 11 Sohweppe. who was nominat ed at Antigo last Wednesday for con gress, by the democrats of the Ninth Congr, ssioual District, is a prominent German attorney of Medford. He was graduated from the State University law department when twenty-three vesrs old, and has practiced law in \1 edford ever since. He has twice been elected mayor of that city; served four years as city attorney and has been twice elected district attorney of Taylor county, ile has served eleven yearn on the Medford School Board, autl was a member of the Democratic State Cen tral Committee in 1896. He is an able speaker, both in the English and Ger man languages, and will make the ablest representative the Ninth has had for many years. Caleb Powers, of Kentucky, was found guilty of complicity in the Goebel murder, last Saturday, the jury being out just forty-tive minutes, ana it fixed the punishment at life imprisonment at hard labor. Taylor and other leading republicans wilt now be prosecuted. CONGRESSIONAL CONVENTION. Democrats of the Ninth District Met at Antigo on Wednesday. The democrats of the Ninth Congres sional District held their convention at Antigo last Wednesday afternoon, and it was a representative one in every sense of the word. There was a full attendance and much enthusiasm. The convention was called to order by Chairman of Congressional Com mittee, Julius Thielman, of Merrill. F. J. Smith was chosen lemporary chairman, and E. P. Brennan, of Rhine lander, secretary, and the following committees appointed: Credentials—Burt Williams, of Ash land county; Herman Meisner, of Sha wano, and Jesse Armstrong, of Lang lade. Permanent organization—H. H. Man son, of Marathon; J. Dagen, of Oconto, and L. T. Brown, of Clark. Resolutions—R. E. Powers, of Mara thon; C. J. Noel, of Marinette, and M. A. Buckley, of Taylor. The committee on credentials report ed fifty delegates entitled to seats iu the convention, all of whom were pres ent. The temporary organization was made permanent and the committee on resolutions submitted the following, which were unanimously adopted: We, the representatives of the demo cratic party of the Ninth congressional district of Wisconsin, do hereby affirm the principles of the democratic party as set forth iu the platform adopted by the national convention of the demo cratic party, which was held July 4th, 1900. at Kansas City. We declare that the principles of government, laid down in the declara tion of independence are the fundamen tal principles upon which our govern ment is founded, and they must be maintained in order that our republic shall live. We maintain that these principles have been abandoned by the republican party, as shown by the acts of the pres ent administration of William McKin ley in dealing with the territory and people which have come under the ju risdiction of the United States as a con sequence of the Spanish-Ameriean war. We contend that the principles of government as set forth in the platform of the republican party of 1860—the platform of Lincoln —are not the princi ples represented by the platform and candidates of the republican party of 1900. The republican platform of 1860 contains the following declaration of principles, viz : “Thai, the maintenance of the principles pro mulgated in the declaration of independence and embodied In the federal constitution 'that all men are created equal ; that they are en dowed by their Creator wfth certain inalienia ble rights : that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness ; that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among ineu, deriving their just powers from the con sent of the governed,' is essential to the pres ervation of our republican institutions.'’ We condemn the present administra tion for lurrying on a war of conquest and subjugation in the Philippine Islands: for undertaking to establish a form of government which is unknown to our constitution and directly in con flict with the principles set forth in the declaration of independence. We record our sympathy and admira tion for the liberty loving people of our sister republics of South Africa in mak ing the struggle they are making for self-government, against the greed and avarice of the republic-hating empire of Great Britain. We especially pledge our support to that plank in the democratic platform which demands that labor shall be rep resented directly in the councils of tbe nation by the creation of a cabinet of fice for that purpose. We pledge our loyal and hearty sup port to that great leader of the demo cratic party, and America’s greatest defender of American liberty, William J. Bryan, of Nebraska, and to his dis tinguished colleague, Adlai Stephen son, of Illinois, who has been tried and not found wanting, as vice president of the United States. We pledge our support to the nomi nee of this convention, and we call upon the people to join with us in support of the democratic party throughout the state and nation, to the end that the principles of our government may not be sacrificed upon the altar of greed and unholy ambition. There were three candidates present ed to the convention for consideration. Wells M. Ruggles, of Ashland county; E. H. Sehweppe, of Taylor county, and P. A. Badour, of Ooouto county. Mr. Sehweppe was the choice of the con vention on the first ballot. Mr. Sehweppe was brought before the convention and accepted the nom ination in a well worded speech. A speech was also made by Wells M. Ruggles. The business of the convention con cluded by electing the following con gressional committee: Chairman —E. P. Brennan, of Oneida. Secretary—-Burt Williams, of Ash land. Ashland —J. J. McGeehau. Clark—E 11. Thompson. Florence — Forest —J. Massbaum. Langlade—A. B. Millard. Lincoln—Jul. Thielman. Marathon —J. J. Lohmar. Marinette—Jos. Marnier. Oconto —P. A. Badour. Price —C. C. Kelcher. Shawano—ll. A. Brauer. Taylor—M. W. Ryan. Vilas—A. O. Darwin. The Chicago Chronicle sounds a timely note of warning. It seems that some of the departments at Washing ton are being prostituted to party pur poses by the republican administration. The bureau of education has been put to the service. of Great Britain in the distribution through the mails, of Brit ish literature about the South African trouble, designed to change, if possible, the sentiment American citizens, from sympathy for the republics of South Africa to condemnation of them. It is expected that giving to the free service of England, the clerical force of the bureau of education and the free use of the United States mails, will, to the extent it may mislead public senti ment as to Great Britain’s aets, inci dentally justify the administration for its sympathy with Great Britain aud the secret understanding between Hay and Salisbury. The treasury depart ment is also engaged in an effort to make converts to McKinleyism by sending out statistics. Statistics ought not to He, but they can be made to lie by telling half truths. The departments of government should be non-partisan, they should at tend to their duties and leave, wire pull ing to politicians, and they have always done so until this new departure under Hanna's administration. There is no call to Ik* surprised at anything Hauna may do unless he should happen to act manly, which is not supposable. The people have had confidence in what they get from the departments, but that confidence is lost, since they have been turned into electioneering devices. They are trying to stem the title which has set In for Bryan in Minne sota, by organizing McKinley and Litni clubs. The republicans admit that Lind, the democratic candidate for governor, will be re-elected. The Pos ten. a weekly Scandinavian paper, which has a circulation of 55,000. is this Year supporting Bryan and Lind. Mr. Turnbiat, its editor, who is one of the best posted men in the state as to the Scandinavian vote, says he is confident that Bryan will carry the state. As usual, the Crosse Chronicle “dou't know auything about if” It tells its readers all about lawyer Bird, of this city, or tries to. It says that he is a partner of Mylrea. Marchetti & Bird, when the fact is Mr. Marchetti has been out of the firm for over a year. The Chronicle also avers that Mr.'Bird has been in accord with the democratic party until the platform recently adopt ed by the party at Kansas City. This is about as near as the Chronicle gets anything. Mr. Bird has been a very lukewarm democrat since 1896. r mm.

Redway upon geography, physiographic and econo mic. Asa man anti public speaker he is sine genris. His measured diction, droll or grotesque conceits and pe culiar voice pitched in many keys give point to his utterances and help to fix them in the memory. He treats the subject on broad lines and in a popular way. He is eminently practical, pur posing to make one feel that our physi cal surroundings condition our lives and control our activities; that what touches the person or pocket-book is the ultimate importance in geography. By way of illustration, lie showed that the Cape of Good Hope is a point worth knowiug because it is directly related to the present industrial pros perity of Minneapolis and St. Paul. He said that the decadence of Venice. Genoa aud Florence began when the unspeakable Turk blocked the caravan routes to the Orient and compelled the people about the Baltic and North seas to seek a water route to the East Indies, which led to the discovery of the New World, the development of whose re sources brought about the founding of the Twin Cities whose flour now feeds the people of Europe. The timorous marines hugging the African shore landed at the cape. Exploring tne coast on the further side they found that the shore turned northward. Set ting sail they mo.de their way up the eastern coast and across the ludian ocean to the far famed Cathay. This gave a great impetus to navigation and exploration and turned theltide of com merce to the Tuetonic people. Had that crew not landed at Good Hope the development of America might have come much later, and these great cities might have been still non-existent. Emphasizing the importance of a people’s adjusting themselves to the conditions of their physiographic envir onment, he pointed to the poverty of the New England colonists until they be gan to appreciate the fact that they had about all the good harbors on the At lantic coast and the best of timber for ship building, and were led to engage extensively in fishing and commerce after which inches flowed in upon them. Then came the various embargo acts in the years preceding the war of 1812, which annihilated commerce and brought poverty and distress to the people. This piece of folly he charac terized as knocking off our national nose to spite our national face. Again scrutinizing their physiographic envir onment they pereieved that their river3 afforded abundance of water power for manufacturing. Adjusting themselves to these conditions the busy wheel of industry brought peace aud plenty to the land. Commenting ou the inlluence of phy siographic features he called attention to the different.conditions under which farming is carried on in eastern aud western Kansas, regions which differ in elevation from two to four thou sand feet. Comparing the circum stances of a farmer in the western part with one iu the eastern, he said, would be like comparing Buffalo Bill with China; Buffalo Bill has a show; but — well, the man in western Kansas isu’t in it, that’s all. He said the gap that across the ext ern highland through which the Mo hawk river flows is not important alone because it gave New York City the commercial and financial supremacy but because it today fixes the rates on all western freights. The New York Central railway with its six tracks mak ing an ascent between the Great Lakes and tide-water not more than four hun dred feet has a tremendous advantage over its competitor like the Erie road which must lift its load many thousand feet in crossing the numerous elevations. The stock of the first eoporation stands away above far while the latter road has been in the hands of a receiver for more than half its history. The doctor is a good deal of an icon oclast and enjoys smashing popular geographic idols by knocking ancient fancies against modern facts. The statement which perhaps most shocked his audience was that the Gulf stream does not affect the climate of western Europe more than five miles from the coast line. He gave an amusing account of the visit of an irate schoolmam to his home to complain of his little daughter’s fail ure to pass her examination in geo graphy. The child met his stern re proof with the blunt reply that he could not pass it himself. He said he prompt -1 - put up a big bluff b3 - demanding the questions, which were produced forth with and proved to be mainly upon location. The first one being pro pounded, he found himself short ou that stock of knowledge and passed on the seeond he was likewise short aud passedagain. He made a stab at the third and got it partl3 - right. The up shot of it all w r as that he, one of the fore most geographers of America was not able to get more than forty percent upon an examination prepared for chil dren of ten or twelve years, a strange commentary upon the judgment of the teacher.

Dr. Dorn has made excellent progress iu his profession and his advancement is a source of pleasure to his many friends. It is nearly three years now since he has visited his home here, and all will be glad to see him. Strange, very strange, though it be, the usually placid and dignified Mil waukee Sentinel is actually losing its temper over politics, and getting “weal mad, don’t eher know.” It devotes to Mr. Bryan a small vocabulary of inde corous nomenclature. It calls him “a democratic free trade apostle of 1892, a populist free silver crank and calamity howler of 1896, and a free rebellion ad vocate and apologist of 1900.” Prob ably this sort of talk, will not hurt Mr. Bryan with the American people, for even his political enemies have learned to know him as the very soul of honor, sincerity and patriotism. But the question is what are we to think when the Sentinel begins to use that sort of political argument ? Really, if one snuff's in between the lines of that, there is a quite smart smell of sulphur. The writer must have breathed some pretty strong “cuss words” on that article w'hile lie was writing it. What can the matter be ? Has there been a review in the Sentinel office, of the “surething”republican election figures? And does it look as if Bryan, who could be kindly tolerated as a sure loser, is likely to win, and therefore must be a very bad man ? One can only guess at the cause of this outbreak of bad lang uage. PICTURES OF SOUND. The Human Voice or Musical KotM May He Photographed, To take a picture of your voice it is caly necessary to tie a sheet of thin strong paper over the flaring end of an old tin horn. Hold the horn with the sheet of paper upward. Take a little pinch of fine sand and place it in the center of the paper. Then hold the horn vertically above your face and sing a note into the lower end of the instru ment. Do not blow, but sing the note. Now lower the horn carefully and look at the sand. You will find that the vi brations of your voice have scattered the pinch of sand into a beautiful sound picture. Every note in the musi cal scale will produce a different pic ture. So you may produce a great variety of them. Some of these pic tures look like snakes, and others like flying birds; in fact, there is no limit to the variation. The pictures of the notes of musical instruments are made by holding the horn as near as possi ble to them. As stated above, sand may be used, but lycopodium powder will produce even better effects. Lycopodium pictures may be “fixed” by first dissolving the powder in alcohol and then placing a drop of the fluid on the paper. But you must be quick about it. The alco hol evaporates in a few seconds, so you must make the sound in the horn as soon as you have deposited: the drop. The small amount of liquid will not prevent the powder in it from spread ing. When it has spread, however, it will stick the picture in its place on tne paper, which may then be taken off the horn and preserved. You may thus obtain pictures of the voices of all your friends. Common gum tragicanth with a little alcohol in it also makes good pictures. If you wish to see the pictures while they are being made, you may employ an old flaring bell-shaped ear trumpet, or you may use your old horn with a short piece of rubber tubing on the month piece.—New York Sun.
