Published weekly and entered at the Post Office at War.sanas second class matter. Thanksgiving Proclamation. Tte president has issued his Thanks giving proclamation and has designated Nov. 27th as the day to be publicly ob served. Here follows the public an nouncement: According to the yearly custom of our people, it falls upon the President at this season to appoint a day of fes tival and thanksgiving to God. Over a century ana a quarter has passed since this country took its place among the nations of the earth, and during that time we have had on the whole more to be thankful for than has fallen to the lot of any other people. Generation after generation has grown to manhood and passed away. Each has had to bear its peculiar burdens, each to face its special crisis, and each has known years of grim trial when the country was menaced by malice, domestic or foreign levy, when the hand of the Lord was heavy upon it in drouth or flood or pestilence, when in bodily distress and anguish of soul it Said the penalty of a froward heart. evertheless, decade, by decade, we -have struggled onward and upward; we now abundantly enjoy material well being and under the favor of the Most High we are striving earnestly to achieve mortal and spiritual uplifting. The year that has just closed has been one of peace and overflowing plenty. Karely has any people enjoyed greater prosperity than we are now enjoying, for this we render hearty and solemn thanks to the Giver of Good; and we seek to please Him, not by words only, but by tteeds, by the way in which we do our duty to ourselves and to our fel low men. Now, therefore, f, Theodore Roose velt, President 6f the United States, do hereby designate as a day of thanks fiving, Thursday, the twenty-seventh ay of the coming November, and do recommend that throughout the laud the people cease from their ordinary occupations and in their several houses and pla/es of worship render thanks unto Almighty God for the manifold blessings of the past year. A Pitiful Spectacle. What a pitiful spectacle is presented by our republican contemporaries, the Central and Record. For nearly a year these papers have been tilled with sup plements derogatory to Mr. LaFollette and condemning his candidacy for the governorship. At the same time the editorial columns of both papers have been devoted to the same ends, and in which have been copied, far and wide, editorials from other journals with the same intent. In all eases the papers professed to follow the i ecords and no one questioned their accuracy. It was made to appeal that the governor was insincere, dishonest and untrustworthy. His whole career and conduct was sub jected to a searching analysis, and he was solemnly and emphatically pro nounced unfit for the governorship. Now those same papers are com mending him to the voters and pleading for his re-election. What alchemy has so suddenly changed such base metal into pure gold that he should be pre ferred to all others ? What political chemistry was applied at Madison on July 16th, that he could be so completely transformed ? Were those papers tell ing the truth prior to that date ? If so, what are they telling uow ? They backed their statements by the public records then. Now they dare not appeal to the records. Their state ments are based upon their prejudices and desire for partisan success. Shall we believe them now or must we re pudiate them altogether ? The psgan priests of Roue are said to have been such imposters that when they met in the street they could not look one another in the face for fear of laughing. With what grins must these editors pass each other, when they think of their imposture and humbug! The twaddle, the flap-doodle, the rot that till their columns is an insult to the in telligence of their readers. The steel trust is selling steel rails $5 per ton cheaper in Europe than in the United States. How would it close our mills' and factories to compel t‘*em to sell as cheap at home as abroad, since they are making a good profit on their foreign shipments ? Barbed wire sells at #2 20 per hun dred, and wire nails at $1.40 abroad. How would it ruin our farmers to allow them to purchase at the same price ? Imported tin is taxed #1.50 per hun dred. If it is here manufactured into tin cans, and these cans are filled with American products aud exported, a rebate of 99 per cent, of the duty is allowed the exporter, but if sold at home the consumer must pay the tax. How would it promote the growth of soup houses to allow Americans free tin for their meats and vegetables ? Go to your base deceivers. If you were to do in business what you try to do in polities, you would be tried before courts for obtaining money under faise pretenses ? How can subscribers look upon these papers with confidence or re spect ? What is t' ft reward for thisba>cgcov eling, this self stultification, this mis representation * Are not manhood, in tegrity, public confidence and respect worth more than a temporary partisan advantage? It may do for Senator Spooner to j grovel ir the dust and kiss the feet that j kick him. though if his self-respect were equal to ten per cent, of his desire for j office, he would not do it. but what can compensate these papers for such folly? If they were right m June they are wrong in November. Our Democratic County Ticket Sure to Win! From Every Part of the County Comes Cheering News of Democratic Success. Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 4th, is election day. and there is a sentiment, abroad that Marathon county is going to give an old-time democratic major ity and elect every nsan on the demo cratic ticket. That there has been such good, reliable men placed on that ticket is, in a great measure, responsible for this feeling of confidence. The cam paign has been a clean one on both sides, but the democratic candidates have done the hardest and most intelli gent work, never letting up a moment in canvassing and their ability as cam paigners will certainly tell, in no uncer tain way at the polls tomorrow. The entire democratic ticket, should be elected by large majorities. The Voter’s Duty. As the campa ng approaches its end, the voters of Wisconsin are brought face to face with a duty which no one of them should neglect if he has the welfare of the state at heart. It should not be regarded by any one of them as a mere matter of convenience. It is a solemn obligation that should urge every man entrusted with a ballot to cast it as his reason and conscientious convictions suggest. The issues entering into the campaign have been fairly presented to the voters. In submitting its case to the verdict of the voters, the democratic party has every reason to expect a favorable de dision. It has made out its case. It has shown by official figures that the aflairs of state are extravagantly man aged and that it is costing the taxpayers to maintain the state government fully twice as much as it did under democrat ic administration of the state’s aflairs. It alone has offered to the voters a spe cific method for equalizing tax burdens. It has shown the folly and the injustice of double taxation and has pledged it self to remedy this indefensible wrong. It has appealed to the reason and com mon sense of the voters and has met every issue fairly and squarely, without evasion or equivocation. It is an obligation that the voter owes to himself and to the state to cast his ballot to condemn extravagance in gov ernment, the multiplying of useless officials and the heaping of added tax burdens on the people. It is a duty the voter owes to his fellow citizens to vote to secure economy and honesty in pub lic administration, and uniformity and justice in the placing of tax burdens. If the voter would he true to himself and to-the moral law, his duly to con demn the demoralizing trafficking in office that has brought disgrace upon the state is plain. Issues of great import are to be de cided at the election now near at hand. They have been thoroughly discussed and every voter should be aware of their nature. We wr uld urge upon our readers to do their duty as citizens and vote as their sober judgment dictates, confident that their decision will call for a return of sane methods in gov ernment and relief from the burdens of unjust taxation and extravagant ad ministration. VOTE FOR WILLIS LaDU FOR THE ASSEMBLY—Ist Dist. The state of Wisconsin can not afford to let it be said that school book houses control the state superintendency. Every democrat should read the ad dress to the voters of Wisconsin given out by A. F. Warden, chairman of the Democratic State Central Committee, which is published in this issue of the Pilot vote FOR ED. C. KRETLOW FOR REGISTER OF DEEDS. Both of the teachers’ Associations that met last week, without a single vote against it passed strong resolu tions indorsing the proposed school amendment. If the teachers are unanimously for it, why should we be against it? They know what it means anti they can be trusted. VOTE FOR J. F. LAMONT FOR COUNTY SUPT. OF SCHOOLS. In his speech at Ashland, the other night Senator Spooner took occasion to compliment Major Burt Williams, of that city. Democratic nominee for con gress, iu a most laudatory manner say ing amoug other things that Williams j was an ideal man, of great brilliancy and intellect, a gentleman in every sense of the word atuLc social leader of great distinction. VOTE FOR W. H GO WAN FOR COUNTY SURVEYOR. C. P. Cary’s circulars announce him |to be "prikHiculiy infallible\n judgment.” I Perhaps this is why the teachers favor Supt Karl Mathie for state Superin | teudent, for he is still human. These same circulars, issued by Mr. Cary, or ! by his friends declare boldly that "it would be hard to bad or to imagine a man better tilted by experience fer *he state superititendency th& T i is Mr. Carj-.” Drawing on the imagination for state superintendent might be more prctitable than drawing on the b* 'k houses. Is Gov. La Follette honest in what he says upon taxation ? We turn to the senate journal, page 28. La Follette's message lo the legislature on taxation. Jan. 10, 1901--to this same legislature which he condemned for not doubling the tax of the railroad corporations— and read there from this •n nilitay comfxrmet hast ban fairer j than Ike timojp' of imdiridnal*.'' Now if Mr. La Fojlette s advice to the legislature was then right is that legislature entitled to the severe con demnation he now gives it? AN ENEMY OF WORKINGMEN. In this country every man has, or should have, the same oppor tunity in life. No other country in the world offers the same op portunity to the deserving as this country. This fact is aptly illustrated right here in Merrill. The business and professional men of Merrill are the sons of poor parents. These men have worked themselves up. We call attention to this because there is a man in this state who is seeking the suffrage of the people, and who, if successful, advocates a certain measure that would put an obstacle in the advancement of any poor man. We refer to Governor La Follette and his scheme of primary nominations. With the governor’s primary scheme in operation it needs no sage to discern that only the rich, influential ind powerful stand a ghost of a show for the nomination for any important office. What show, for instance, would a poor man have of being nomin ated for a state office, congress, or any other honorable position, against the rich with the primary scheme in operation? Abso utely no show whatever. Under the caucus and convention plan the ability of the poor man is recognized by nominating conven tions, and they succeed. In the persistent advocacy ot the pri mary nominating scheme Robert M. La Follette has placed him self on rec rd as opposed to the advancement of the poor man. La Follette with his tax reform cry is throwing dust in the eyes of the working men and farmers. His hobby is the primary nonrnating scheme. He wants that so that himself and a coterie of friends can minipulate the offices. The workingmen and far mers of Lincoln county should register a good strong kiek against thi sscheming politican.—Merrill Advocate (Rep.) To tiit Voters of Wisconsin: The campaign for a return to sane methods in government and economy in public administration has now reached a stage where it may confidently be predicted that the Democratic state ticket will be elected by a substantial majority, with promise of Demo cratic control of the legislature and the election of several Demo crats to the house of representatives of the federal congress. The issues of the campaign have been fairly presented to the voters of the state by the Democratic press and by Democratic speakers that have addressed the voters of every city, village, town and hamlet in the state. David S. Rose, the Democratic candidate for governor, has been making one of the greatest campaigns in the history of the state. Before the polls will have been closed, he will have addressed more voters than anv other public speaker who has ever spoken to during a political compaign in this state. Y\ herever he has spoken, his meetings have aroused wide-spread interest among the voters. The enthusiasm which his speaking campaign has created and the evidence on everv hand that his speeches have carried conviction to the minds of the voters, warrant the statement that the election of the Democratic state ticket is assured. It is not, however, upon what might be deemed surface indications that the predictions of Democratic success is made. A thorough organization in every precinct of the state has been perfected and from a careful poll of the voters made by the correspondents of the Democratic State Central Committee there is every assurance of the election of Democratic ticket by a majority larger than the most sanguine reasonably could expect. The voters of Wisconsin have come to realize the hollowness of ‘‘reform” and the perfidy of its apostle, who, while professing at tachment to high ideals and to purity in government, has been convicted at the bar of public opinion upon the evidence of men of the highest standing iu the republican party, of scandalous methods of raising money contributions from corporations with which to carry on his personal campaign for factional supremacy. They have come to realize the insincerity of the Republican can didate for governor in professing to desire tax legislation which shall make corporations and individuals bear a justly proportionate share of the burden of government. They have had it brought home to them that this “reformer” made the Stevens bill the paramount measure of his administration and through his in fluence withheld consideration of the tax commission tax bills by the assembly until the Republican factions had become so embit tered that the passage of any inportant measure was impossible. They have contrasted his public utterances demanding “tax re form” with the double taxation aud the enormous increase in the state mill tax under his administration that “It is but just to note in this connection that, as appears by the above tables, the railroad companies have been fairer than the average of individu als, who, as to the great mass of personal property, assess them solves,” and have come to realize that “tax reform” as advocated by the Republican party is merely to afford Gov. LaFollette an issue with which to address the voters after having exhausted his hobby to inaugurate purity in government by abolishing all political conventions and to reduce office-seeking to an exact Science. The voters of Wisconsin have come to see that the Democratic party alone offers in its plan of uniform taxation the only method of placing the several classes of property subject to taxation upon a basis of absolute equality. The record the Democratic party made in.its administration of the state government from 1891 to 1895 offers a striking contrast with the ‘‘reform” administration of Gov. La Follette. Under Democratic administration, economy ruled, tax burdens were lightened and sinecures abolished. Under the administration of Gov. La Follette there has been great out cry for “tax reform,” but no effort has been made to relieve the burdens of the taxpayers by cutting off useless expenses; instead there has been extravagance in every department of government, the taxes of the individual taxpayer have been made heavier, useless officials have been multiplied, and under the increase in the assessment the taxes of public-service corporations have been reduced. Thd Democratic party of Wisconsin has never made a secret alliance with the railway corporations to attain its ends. It has never trafficked in office or bartered places upon its ticket. It goes before the voters with clean hands and a clear conscience. It is unequivocally for honest taxation, without favoritism to any class or interest, but with justice to all. It has never lost sight of the tax question. In state and nation it has always stood for an adjustment of taxes to relieve the masses of unjust burdens. It was the Democratic party that enacted the income tax that was made void by a decision of the United States Supreme court. It was the Democratic party that first recognized the evils of tariffs that enable monopoly to receive undue advantage and fatten on the substance of the people—a nositioa which is now coming to be recognized by a growing element among the Repub licans of the West as eminently correct. The Democratic party of Wisconsin has not abated its zeal for tariff reform. It has not lost sight of the greater issues that press for solution, but it has recognized that in the election of a state ticket, issues that are purely local should not be neglected. The verdict of the voters of Wisconsin will be rendered upon the aggression of the pro tected monopolies in the election of members of congress and in directly to the election of members of the legislature. There is every reason to believe that their decision will be favorable to the Democratic party in its attitude of no-protection to criminal trusts. In the election ot state officers, the votes of Wisconsin are called upon to determine whether they prefer conservative and sane methods of public administration, uniformity in taxation and economy in expenditures, or false pretense, extravagance, the riding of hobbies and the blocking of legislation by factional war fare between the executive and the legislature. That their ver dict will be such as will justify the efforts of the Democratic party to present the issues fairly before them, I have every reason to believe. Democratic success is assured, if every De - • -at does his duty. To you. Democrats of Wisconsin; to you. independent voters and Republicans that have freed yourselves from partisan prejudice, the Democratic party confidently looks for the redemp tion of our common state from the affliction of Pharisaical and hypocritical “reform," and relief from the burdens of unjust tax ation and extravagance in public administration which the peo ple of Wisconsin are now to bear. A. F. WARDEN. Chairman Democratic State Central Committee. r”~' ilk Wfe. *W ■ VOTE FOR HERBERT H. MAXSON, FOR TIIE ASSEMBLY AND EQV'AL TAXATION. John C. Spooner. Senator Spooner, the much heralded and greatly overpraised orator, has come and gon ?, and we still survive. His friends are Lot much elated nor are his enemies cast down. There is a bit ter taste in the mouths of many. He made no converts and healed few wounds. ituperation and bluster do not make con/erts. It is an old saying that molasses will catch more flies than vinegar. Ihe Senator is a disappointment as a campaigner. He never compliments an audience by crediting it with intelli gence and appealing nobly to that intel ligence. On the contrary, he invariably underrates the intelligence of his audi ors and insults them with sophistry, demagoguery and clap-trap. He not infrequently ventures upon misstate ments of facts of common knowledge or perversions of history. Often he is abusive, low-down, dirty. It is doubt ful if any other Senator in the United States so shamelessly drags the senator ial toga in the mire as does Senatoi Spooner. He insults, vilifies and-heaps contempt upon his political opponents, and arrogantly, imperiously, flippantly commands or advises his followers. It was exceedingly difficult for his most ardent admirers on the stage to keep up a show of enthusiasm to the end of the speech. His failing lies in his utter lack of sympathy with common humanity. His life has been given to the service of great corporate and monetary interests and he is out of touch with the common people. It was he who advised the method of punishment iu anticipation of an offence, and condemnation with out trial by jury. Government by in junction is a tribute to his acumen aud a monument to his contempt for the rights of man. Like the old Bourbons of France, he forgets nothing and learns nothing. H - is a half-century behind the times in economic thought and industrial devel opment. His mouthings about trusts and the benefits of protection are an insult to the intelligence of a digger Indian. It is the height of insolence as well as absurdity to tell the laboring men and farmers that they are bene fited by the sale of American manufac tures in foreign countries cheaper than at home. In commending the trusts and the tariff he would have his coun trymen accept one of the blessings of J icob: ‘Tssacher is a strong ass, bowed down between two burdens. And he saw that rest was good, aud the lind that it was pleasant, and bowed his shoulders to bear, and became a s :rvant unto tribute.” Mr. Spooner lias lost faith iu popular government. In his speech at Lancas ter he called our elections a “demo gogic tear-up,” and said it would be better for the country if we might not have another election for twenty years, his party, of course, being in power. He declared that he had found more of “demagogic imbecility” in the state in oue week’s campaigning than he ever dreamed existed in the country. That statement perfectly reveals the real sentiment of the man, —a profound dis gust with common humanity. The peo ple seemed unwilling to accept rot for argument, and he taunted them with “imbecility,” He is the embodiment of the spirit of the old Federalists. Hamilton said that Democracy is a great beast. John Adams declared that the rich, the well born, aud the able ought to rule, and accounted for his failing of re-election by saying that “a group of foreign linrs, encouraged by a few ambitious native gentlemen, have discomfited the education, the talents, the virtues, and the property of the country.” A Fed eralist newspaper said the rise of De mocracy was putting those into power who ought to be in servitude. Similar ly, Spooner calls popular intelligence “imbecility,” and would dispense with elections for twenty 3’ears. If that could come to pass, there never would be another election in the United States and the people would be in servitude. Senator Spooner is lauded as a great speaker. But a great speaker must be lieve in humanity, „jstiee and right eousness, else he cannot argue and per suade; he can only pettifog, rant and abuse. That is what ails Spooner. His alliance with selfish aud overreaching corporations makes it necessary for him to hoodwink and befool the people. As a campaigner, LaFollette is immeasura bly his superior. He is more argument ative, plausible and persuasive. If he is insincere, as is charged, he at least has the semblance of sincerity, and makes a good profession of devotion to the interests of the people. If he would make good his professions in this re spect, and vindicate his sincerity, he will take Spooner’s scalp at the tirst I opportunity. Senator Spooner is not j only a greatly overestimated man, but ! he is also a deadly foe to liberty, equal- j ity and humanity, in no sense does he 1 represent Wisconsin in the senate. He I is the agent of the great monetary in- j terests of the country. Senator Spooner was met on Wednes- j day, at Eland Junction by a delegation ! of prominent Wausau republicans, and j escorted to this city and the afternoon \ was spent in talking over the situation. 1 The opera house was filled by those ! who were anxious to hear him, but nundreds of democrats left when they! could stand his abuse and vilification j no longer. He was introduced by Sen- t ator A. L. Kreutzer, who took occasion j to deliver a written speech, setting him- i self is line with the LaFollette platform i especially on the primary election and the tax bills. It is difficult to ex- | plain why Mr. Kreutzer deemed it nec- \ essary to do this as all are aware of the j stand which he had taken in the legis- j lature, and it looked as if he was j ‘ afraid of the cars. ' He certainly j w ake ed himself. He made a rank statement when he said that the demo- j cratic platform was silent on the ques- i Lion of taxation and declared against \ a primary election law, when every j Totei knows that the democratic plat form euipfaa'icaDy declares for the re- peal of all laws now in force which pro vide for double taxation, and was in favor of uniformity in the taxation of all property; and on the primary elec tion question the platform only places itself on record as against the Stevens’ primary election bill. Mr. Kreutzer said: “I am now authorized to say, on be half of George Fen rich, from the First district, and Herman Miller, from tile Second district. thsl we all stand un qualifiedly for just and equal taxation as demanded by the state platform.” The voter can hardly be expected to cast his ballot for such meu if they fol low the example of Herman Millet ho voted against the railroad tax hills in the legislature two years ago. The Spooner meeting failed to do any good for the republicans in Wausau, but on the.contrary, made democratic votes.
