Alexander, of Wausau, is likely to be a candidate for governor, next fall, on the Republican ticket, and it is our opinion that if Walt, makes up his mind to enter the runuing he will lead the other fellows a mighty swift race; There is not another man in the northern part of the state could pull “the boys” more solidy around him than could Walter Alexander.

Sevekaj ML > have already been in troduced jp Congress relative to an archism. Senator Hoar has introduced a measure for the protection of the president of the United States. It pro vides that an attempt to take the life of the president shall be punished by death, and anyone who s all counsel or advise the death of the president shall be imprisoned for twenty years. Any one who shall aid in the escape of any person concerned in the killing or counseling shall be tried as an accom plice. Senator Burrows has introduced a bill “to provide for the exclusion and de portation of alien Anarchists. The sec tion provieds that no alien Anarchists shall here after be permitted at any port of the United States or be admitted into the United States, but this prohibition shall not be so construed as to apply to political refugees or political offenders other than such anarchists. The second section directs the special board of inquiry authorized by the im migration laws to make diligent investi gation concerning the antecedents of any alien seeking admission in to the United States who is suspected of being an auarchist, authorizing the board to eten go to the extent of ex aminiug the person of suspected alliance for marks indicative of membership in anarchistic societies. Section three provides for the return of persons to their native country who have secured admission'to the United Str’°s contrary to law and who have afterward been found to be anarchists. The fourth sec tion provides that when any alien is con victed of any crime in any United States court and it shall appear from the evi dences that he is an anarchist the pre siding judge shall direct a further hear ing and if the judge is satisfied that the convicted alien is an anarchist or that his remaining in this country will be a menace to the government or society in general he may direct that in addition to other punishments adjudged the con vieted|alien after uudergoiug such pun ishment shall be deported at the ex pense of the United States to the coun try front which he came, and if he re turns to the United States he shall be punished by imprisonment at hard labor for a period uqt exceeding five years aud afterwards again deported. Provision is made for the appointmeut of twelve immigration agents at a salary of $2,500 each to make investigation in foreign countries concerning intended immigrants. The sixth and last section of the bill provides that “the fact that an alien has declared his intention to become a citizen of the United States constitute no bar to proceedings against him under this act.” r l - Bound books Bc.

HELD FOR MURDER. The examination of Jacob Sehaum berger, charged with murder, was con cluded today. Th; examination was taken up yesterday morniDg after an adjournment from Nov. 29th. The cir cuit court room was used by Judge Mil ler in conducting the examination and all the witnesses examined at the in quest, together with some new ones, gave testimony. The work was neces sarily slow on account of a great deal of the testimony being taken only through<the aid of an interpi'eter. After all information from witnesses had been adduced, Judge Miller was of thrfopinion that the facts were such as to hold Schaumberger, and he was ac cordingly bound over to appear at the next term of circuit court under bail of SI,OOO. At the time this is written his at torneys are arranging for his bail bond. The crime with which be is charged, it will be remembered, was the shooting of Ida Andrjewski on the afternoon of Oct 25. EVERY TOWiThAsTtHEM, In the column headed “Thoughts on Things Material and Immaterial,” by Ralph H Wheelock, in the Minneapolis Tribune of Tuesday we find the fo.low ing : “Who that values a good name and loves his neighbors but can sympathize with ‘Farmer Ben,’ the rustic philoso pher of the Austin Transcript, when he says: ‘There is one womau in Austin that ought to have her tongue cut out and labeled ‘Mrs. But.’ She can’t say a thing about anybody unless she attaches a derogatory ‘but’ to it. Her neighbor is a pretty fine woman BUT she was a little gay when she was a girl. Her neighbor’s girl she likes BUT she baugs out after the boys nights. Oue woman wears a fine cloak BUT she has doubts of just how she earned it. Her girl’s teacher is a good one But she has a beau out of school hours. One woman she knows works hard Butshe isdirty in her housekeeping And so it goes. Her tongue can never say all good of any body, man, woman or child. I hate to see such women round. They are vile slanderers and traducers and injurers of reputation by their insinuative ‘buts,’ and I just "wish Mrs. But could be teetotally suppressed. My idea is that if you cannot say something good of j’our neighbors then keep your mouth shut.’ ” Special prices on fur coats at Althcn’s. J. P.

Wausau. Shoving the Queer. The game of counterfeiting in this country is played by people cf all na tionalities. and, although some women and children are used as tools, men take the principal parts. After having made the coin the great problem is how to convert it into good money. The maker rarely takes part In that opera tion. It is the business of gangs, which consist usually of two persons, known as the “holder” and the “shover.” The holder carries a stock of the counterfeit money, and the shover has one piece. This he takes to a store or a saloon and buys something for a small amount, and when he comes into the street the holder sees him from his po sition a block away, joins him, receives the good money and hands him another counterfeit. The object is to work so that the shover, if detected, may plead inno cence and prove that the piece is the only one that he has and that he has no other money. Some clever operators go so far as to mix good coin with the bad. To Gange Hl* Wife’s Temper. “I heard about a peculiar case of hen pecked husband 'recently,” said a young woman the other day. “What was it?” her friend inquired. “There is a man who has some diffi culty In gauging his wife’s temper. At times she is considerate of his welfare and at other times —well, he rather thinks that married life is a failure. “He has a peculiar manner of finding out the state of his wife’s feeling to ward him. In the evening when he re turns home from work he never steps into the house without going through a sort of ceremony. First he throws his hat in the house, and then he seats himself on the stops and waits. If five minutes pass without the hat being thrown out again, he enters and gener ally finds his wife very agreeable. However, if the hat is thrown out again the unfortunate man seeks hos pitality for the night somewhere else rather than brave the anger of his help meet.”—Cleveland Leader. An Approach to Perpetual Motion. A clock is to be seen at Brussels which comes about as near being a perpetual motion machine as can be invented, for the sun does the winding. The following is the method by .which it works: A shaft exposed to the solar rays causes an up draft of air, which sets the fan in motion. The fan actu ates mechanism which raises the weight of the clock until It reaches the top and then puts a break on the fan till the weight has gone down a little, when the fan is again liberated and proceeds to act as before. As long as the sun shines frequently enough and the machinery does not wear out the clock will keep In perpetual motion. In Retreat. Down from the upper air floated the strains of music, yet Neptune was visi bly annoyed. “What’s gnawing at thy vitals, sire?” asked a mermaid. “I wish in the name of Orpheus,” said the sea king, “that boating parties could slag something else besides ‘A Life on the Ocean Wave.’ ” And forthwith be crawled into a cave and pulled the cave in after him. —New York Marine Journal. Caring a Male. A mule In a pack train which was usually loaded with salt discovered that by lying down when fording a certain stream and allowing the salt to dissolve he could lighten his burden. The muleteer once loatled him with sponges instead, which absorbed water when he lay down In the stream and made his burden fourfold heavier. The mule was cured of his smartness. Playing It Down Low. “I haven't much use fq(r Bllthersley,” said the proud papa. “Why?” asked the proud mamma. “I listened to him for a’ hour today while he told me about what his baby had said or tried to say. and just as 1 was about to tell him nltout ours he left me. saying he had to catch a train.” —Baltimore American. The Important Thing. “Do you think it makes much differ ence which planet a person is born un der?” “Not a bit. so long as he keeps on the earth.”—Town and Country.
