T a fount, of Marathon Cltj, is boil#; mentioned as the democratic candidate f>r the Assembly of the First Assembly district of Marathon county. The selection would be an ex cellent one, as l>r. Taugher is a broad minded, educated gentleman, and is a very stiong man in the district. Dt kino a terrific electric storm in Butte, Montana, last Friday, a pile of meat, in a refrigerator ear, became so highly charged with electricity that two men. coming in eoutact with the same were rendered unconscious and for several hours it was thought they could not recover. 'This is a peculiar coincidence, but it may suggest a means by which the meat trust can be downed. Tuk man who always hates every body but himself, aud perhaps his im mediate family, and who cannot keep a civil tougne in his h -ad is bound to run up against a brick wall, sooner or later, which will jar him into some regard for decency. It is booed that Gen. Bragg's recent experience in Cuba will tend to bring the doughty General to his senses. The sobriquet of ‘Tig tail Bragg" will, probably, always stay with him. Gen. Jacob H. Smith landed in America, at San Francisco, last F'riday, and not until that time did he learn of his disgrace—that ot being retired from active duty by the President, for having ordered the island of Samar trans formed into a howling wilderness, and all natives killed who were over ten years of age. Gen. Smith deserves more severe punishment. The democrats of Marathon county should make no mistake in their selec tions for candidates for the county offices this fall. Those who have, in he past, only been democrats when they themselves were placed on the ticket, and at all other times helped out the republicans, ought to be taught a U .-son b} leaving them severely alone. They are weak, very weak. Louis A. Lange, of Fond dn Lac, is being urged for the position of Secre tary of Si.ate on the democratic ticket, this fall. Mr. Lange has held promi nent positions in the party, and has al ways proven himself to he a faithful servant of the people and at all times true to his convictions. He is an able anil popular democrat of the state and if nominated will add great strength to the ticket. An address has been issued to the republicans of Wisconsin, signed by leading republicans of the sta‘e, setting forth the record made by John C. Spooner in the senate. It urges his re-election to that .body, and the appeal states that a move to the con trary would bring forth the criticism of the party and nation. The names of Hon. Alexander Stewart and Walter Alexander, of Wausau, appear among the signers of the address. Hon. L. A Pradt, in an interview at Washington, D. C., yesterday, scored Gov. LaFollette and the republican state convention, recently held at Mad ison, most unmercifully. He said, in closing, that notwithstanding the state gave McKinley over 100,000 majority in 1900, the result this fall is uncertain, and further, that “the democrats are alive to the situation and will nominate a ticket that will receive the support of many republicans, who prefer anything else to LaFoliotteism.” The U. S. Civil Service Commission will hold examinations, din ing Septem ber and October, in several places in each state to secure young meu and women for the government service. There are now 126,423 positions in the dassifield civil service, being an increase of 46,736 in six years. There were 7,972 persons appointed between July 1, 1901, and April 15, 1902, being at the rate of 10,070 for the year. There will probably be 11,000 appoint ments next year. Salaries at appoint ment vary from $660 to $1,200 a year, liberal promotions afterward. All appointments are for life and for most positions only a common school educa tion is required. Politics or religion is not considered. Those desiiing to take examinations of this kind can get full information about them free by writing to the Columbian Correspon dence College, Washington, I). C., and asking for its Civil Service Catalogue for 1902. The Milwaukee Journal, as manipu lated by the republicans, certainly per forms some queer antics. Last spring it supported David ltose for mayor of Milwaukee. Just now it is afraid that David is going to try to get into the gubernatorial chair of Wisconsin, and is bringing up everything possible against the mayor to prevent such a thing happening. Its supposed strong est point is that it will cost the city of Milwaukee upwards of $30,000 to elect another mayor. If the democrats of \\ iscousin want David Rose for their candidate for governor, whether it costs Milwaukee SIO,OOO or $20,000 will cut no ligure, and we do not think anyone with an ounce of brains, in that eity or out of it, will consider anything else but that the people have a right to choose those whom they care to have in charge of governmental affairs. Yours is a poor argument, Mr. Journal. The Pilot really has no choice for governor, unless it lie the Hon. Neal Brown, of this city; but whether it is Brown, Rose, Jones, or anyone else whom the democrats decide upon, he will be selected because of his titness for the position, and reg rdiess of whatever municipal offices that he may hold. If a man is wanted to hold important positions because of his ability, he should make sacrifices, so should his friends and so should municipalities. Our County Superintendent, Johu K. Lamont, is being urged, from all sides, to become a candidate for the position of State Superintendent of Public In struction on the democratic ticket this fall. There is no qn stion in the minds of all who know Mr. Lamont that he would make an ideal candidate and further, that he is capable of making one of tlie best superintendents the state has ever had, but there is one thing wh eh stands in the way to his becoming a candidate, and mat is Mr. Lamont will not accept the nomination. He has sad to a Pilot reporter that he has given the matter some considera tion. and for personal reasons could not accept the nomination if the same were tendered him. If the people of Marathon county had a voice* in the matter they would say that they could not spare Mr. Lamont; that his services were needed in the present position which he has so ably filled for the past eight years County Superintendent of Schools He has Ibeen a very strong factor in establishing in this county, the Marathon County Training School for Teachers and the School of Agricul ture and Domestic Economy, and has made many changes which have placed our county schools in the front ranks of the very best in the state, and his services axe needed right along in this county. There is no question but that Mr. Lamont will again be renominated and elected for the position of Connty Superintendent of 3*l arnthon county. New York Journalism. The last number of The Commoner publishes an editorial from Leslie’s Weekly, which gives the editor’s opin ion of Mr. BryaD in a dirty sort of lan guage that Western people do not ex pect to hear used under any circum stances, by decentor respectable people. The Commoner publishes this editorial as a sample of the style and animus of the type of newspapers in New York City which call themselves “indepen dent.” The Commoner makes no fur ther comment upon it, and that is the right thing to do, for The Commoner is read by clean, decent, intelligent people who can be trusted to form their own estimate of the man who could write that sort of an article. It is an interesting subject for the student of social science,—although it is also a sad one—the decadence of the average editorial to be found in New York papers, as they now look to those of us who knew them when Horace Greely and his fellow giants were in their editorial chairs. We have some times heard people account for it by the fact that now the editors are hired men. That is a fallacy in our view. The fact that a man writes for hire does not alter the man. A decent inan will write de ceutly, whether he is running his own newspaper or editing one he does not own. He will write decently because that is the only way a decent man can write. A blackguard will write black guardism in his own uewspaper and will write it also if he is working as a salaried editor. He cannot write any other w'ay, for the simple reason that he is a blackguard. The difference be tween the New York papers of Horace Greeley’s day, and the present, comes from a difference in the character of the writers, os men. The sad aud interest ing fact is that such men can get such places now. Why is it? in the last analysis it will be traced to the readers of the papers. The New York papers of course depend chiefly upon New York readers for their circulation. The solution must be that the corpora tions who own the New York news papers, hire such men to write their edi torials aud other matter, as are in sympathy with the ideals of their aver age reader. New York is a very cor rupt city in every way. Its religion, its philosophy, its morals, its politics, and every leading element of its life are sat urated with hypocricy, selfishness and materialism. The newspaper requires only a trifle closer analysis than the stage to show itself as true an index to the temper of its constituency. Cities grow bad as they grow large. But New York has not grown nearly as fast as Chicago yet it has grown bad faster than Chicago—and faster than any other American city except Philadelphia. Why should New York, having grown in population much less rapidly than Chicago, grow so much faster in gen eral wickedness? Probably because Chicago owes its growth chiefly to au influx of people from all parts of the Central Northwest, —a region inhab ited by a people who stand very much higher, in all the essentials of manhood and womanhood than those of any other section of our country east of the Rocky Mountains Without going into par ticulars it may be safely said that New York was much less fortunate, in the sources of its growth, than Chicago. The people may not know it ; but the fact is that they have more influence than the editors and proprietors in moulding the newspapers they read. Starvation Starvation stared the miners in West Virginia who are on a strike, in the face, as an injunction against food is the latest decree issued by a United States court in labor disputes. Such an injunction was issued Monday by federal judge D. F. Keller, of Charles ton, and by its terms it restrains friends of union labor from supplying food or other supplies to the striking coal miners in the state, even though they be starving. A violation of this order is made punishable by jail sentence for contempt of court, and by tines. The injunction is said to have been secured to prevent the officials of the United Mineworkers of America from send ing any portion of the great relief fund now beiug contributed by the bitumin ous miners of other states, to the men in Virginia who are lighting the battle for higher w ages and the recognition of the union. If this order of court holds good it means that the striking miners are to be forced into submission by the very fear of starvation, of not only them selves but their families, and is regard ed everywhere as the most striugent and far reaching order ever issued by any court in America. It is an injunc tion against food which the employed would give an unemployed, and would result in death to the miner should he refuse to return to work at such a price as the coal baron deems a fair remuneration for a day's work. It would mean more than this, if it is not speedly dissolved, as history has proven that hunger drives men insane, and mad men do not stop to value life when death comforts them. The present labor trouble is deplored by every man iu this country, but it should not be made worse by inciting men to vio lence. It is neither humane or just that men should be legally starved or made submissive by starvation—that the coal barons, or any other corpor ation may win in a struggle between capita! and labor. Monarch* and kings may lead their subjects to the slaughter, but in the United States the “Subjects” are as great as are the elect ed rulers.—Fonddu Lac Reporter. As will be noticed from announce ments made in this issue of the Pilot, by A. F. Warden, Chairman of the Dem- YYratie State Central Committee, that the Democratic State Convention w ill be held in the city of Milwaukee on the 3d day of Sept ; and by Louis Marchetti, Chairman of the Democratic County Committee, that the Democratic Coumy Convention for the purpose of electing State, Congressional and Sen atorial delegates, is called for the &and day of August. At LaCrosse Tuesday noon the *>- ner stone of the old Pomeroy building erected by “Brick” Pomeroy in 1867, wherein was once published the famous LaCrosse Democrat, which had a na tional reputation, was opened to public view, and many interesting relics characteristic of this extremist were found. At the time the coiner stone was laid, Pomeroy could not engage a city ban.i for the occasion, so great was the animosity against him, aud he was forced to secure the services <*.' a visiting minstrel organization. In a way this man was a genius, and his caustic writings, in advocacy of the cause of the Confederate slates, gained for him a reputation throughout the country, and his pen also got him into much trouble for his printing office was several times wrecked by an angry populace. He accumulated consider able wealth, but in the later years of his life became interested in a project for digging a tunnel through the Rocky mountains in which he lost his all, and he died a penniless man. BASE BALL w ausau was met and defeated on the home grounds Sunday by the Kaukauna base ball aggregation in a game marked by excitement and interest from start to finish. Kaukauna went to bat firet and was blanked, and i j its half of the first the Waus tu team made two runs. Then visions of victory arose before the eyes of Wausau people, which vision was dispelled when the visitors made four runs in the next two innings and the locals failed to tally again until the fourth when two more runs were added to their column aud then hope again rose. In four iuniDgs a total of 8 hits had been made off Olm stead and it looked as if he would be touched up rather freely before the game was over but after that he settled down to business and allowed Wausau but one hit during the balance of the game, a three bagger by F'allon, who scored a minute later on an out, and then Wausau’s run-getting ceased. The visitors secured eleven hits off Foulkes, who did not appear at his best in this game. Bebeau dropped a fly in left field in one inning that was respon sible for several runs but to even up matters executed a difficult catch run ning backwards that looked good for a home run. A running picKup catch of a hot grouuder by Corbett aud the catch of a high thrown ball to first, which “Stepladder” Comstock had to use his wings to get, were features of interest. Following is the score by innings: Kaukauna 0 1 3 2 0 0 0 1 o—70 —7 Wausau 2 0 0 2 0 0 1 0 0-5 The same teams were scheduled to play another game on Monday out vis itors violated their coutract by leaving for home that evening. * * * About thirty-five adiuissiou tickets have been pilfered from the base hall association aud the management desires it understood that anyone presenting one of these tickets at the gate will be prosecuted. All tickets have been marked. * * * Foulkes pitched a game for Ashland Tuesday against the Waseca, Minn., team and won his game by a score of Ito 0. It was the prettiest game seen in Ashland this season. * M, * Green Bay will probably play here Sunday. Mrs. T. M. Smith, who has been on the sick list for the past two weeks, is now improving. The poetical works of Henry J. McKay are now on sale at both Mumm & Co.’s and J. Rohde’s book stores, and also at the popcorn stand on the eouri house square. The annual mission feast of St. John’s Lutheran church of the town of Maine was held Sunday at Fitzke’s grove. Rev. F. Werhahn, of this city, is pastor of this church, but in the morning services were held by Rev. 11. Thomas, of Hale’s Turners, and Rev. E. C. Grauer, of M* nominie, and in the afternoon Rev. Otto Riugle and Rev. G. Fischer spoke A great many from this eity attended. Miss Helen Gebhard bad a very narrow escape Sunday from being seriously burned. Accidentally a lighted match set lire to a white dress which she wore and instantly the dress was in flames. By heroic efforts oh the part of others who were iu the room at the time the flames were smoth ered and she escaped burns which would have resulted seriously ami might have terminated in disfigure ment or with fatal effects. A fellow r giving his name as Sam Wheeler appeared in the city Saturday evening, and sought out the district • j attachment papers served ou ..... i.itle one horse circus that showed here Friday evening, but which then had its tents pitched at S holield. The fellow stated that he had sl3 00 coming for wages vliich ho con’.i not collect. When the slicin' appeared I the owner of the circus paid over the money but not without protestations for he claimed he had a few days pre vious bailed the fellow out of jail and that he had nothing coming. A horse belonging to Dan Healy ran away on Thursday. The animal wa hitched to a dump cart and started from the stable, turned on to Third street but was brought to a standstill j at the drinking fountain in front of the court house. In his brief run he sue- ! ceeded in breaking the thills of the i cart and seriously injuring himself, j At the time of the runaway there were j several rigs on Third street, and it seems miraculous that no one was in- ; lured. One of these rigs was driven by Mrs. J K Stephany. who was aceom panied by her guest. Mm W J. Doherty, of Kaukauna. The ladies sheered the j horse into the gutter and barely es- i espod injury. They were so overcome i by fright, that they' were compelled to go into the drug store of G. N iff/ and rest until their excitement had passed away. Excursion Rates to Kiibourn Delis.
