Published weekly and entered at the Post Office •t Wausanas second class matter. Where Does Senator Spooner Stand? The men who are declaring with so much vehemence that John C. Spoon er will be re-elected to the United State senate this winter without opposi tion, are generally men whose absorp iton, in practical politics has stunted their intelligence in other directions. To us it appears that Mr. Spooner can be saved only by public sentiment, and is public opinion so favorable to the candidacy of Mr. Spooner as some of his professional friends attempt to make out? If he is not greatly misunderstood by the people of Wisconsin nothing of the independent voters to whom Republicans owe their overwhelming success since 1896. But is Mr. Spooner misunderstood? Wo have thought he was not. His speeches in the late cam paign were a disappointment to those who had hoped to find him standing on advanced ground with the president. It seemed to us that his attitude on the tariff and trusts was suggestive of Bourbonism more than anything else. From Wausau comes this letter to The Journal, written by a man of independ ent thought and high ideas of his duty as a citizen: To the Editor of The Jounral: I enclose a clipping from The Pilot, a local Democratic paper for Nov. 4. You will see that the subject is Senator Spoouer, and that paper treats him with some severity. It is my opinion that he deserves castigation on ali sides for bis abusive speeches in the campaign jus.closed. He should learn theopinions of the humblest citizen are as sacred as his own and must be respected. If he does not like the kind of treatment this paper accords him, let him set the examplein courtesy. How it lowers our estimation of the United States senate to be perpetually reminded that he is one of the greatest if not the very greatest men among them Independent. Wausau, Wis., Nov. 3, 1902. It is not necessary to reprint the arti cle. which is uncommonly well-written, castigating Senator Spooner, who is likened to the old Bourbons of France who forgot nothing and learned nothing. He is held to be wanting entirely in sym pathy with the progressive spirit which is making itself felt in the Republicam party and foe of a revision of the tariff that will afford some relief to the con sumer. His proposition to dispense with elections for twenty years is re garded not as the flippancy of a partisan stump speaker, but the expression of a settled conviction.—Milwaukee Journal. On Sunday, Nov, 23d, the Milwaukee Journal entered upon the 21st year of its existince, as lively as you please and as independent as a “hog on ice.” Well, the Pilot has always admired the Journal’s independence and con sidors that element its great source of strength—and the Journal certainly cuts a wide suath in moulding public opinion. It states its principles well, in the following language: “The Journal has always held to the good old Democratic gospel of belief in all the people. It has believed that all the people are wiser than any part of them, and that they work out their own proplems intelligently and to ultimate good purpose. Believing this, •The Journal appeals to the intelligence of the reading public. It prints all phases of the news, and while it is never neutral, it is never an abject slave to any party. Independence is not only compatible with the highest pur poses of journalism, it is in harmony with the greater political thought of the day, nationally and internationally. Newspaper readers will form their own opinions if they are furnished au ac curate statement of facts. This is The Journal’s constant effort and that it is measurably successful it is steadily growing clientage bears witness. The Journal has no higher ambition than to merit public confidence." Long live the JournAl! THANKSGIVING. Next Thursday is the day when this year’s crop of turkeys is supposed to|have reached such a degree of ripeness that it can be plucked and placed on the dinner tables of those who have a weak ness for that bird, and there are many persons so inclined but it is reported that this year's crop of the fowl did not “pan out" well, and they are conse quently scarce. It has been the custom in years gone by for the well to-do-peo ple of our city to get up a contribution before each Thanksgiving celebration, and distribute articles of diet to those numbered in the class of“ God's patient poor," but this year the matter seems to have beeu neglected for some rea son we cannot account for. Perhaps there are no poor people in town this year. If such is the case wc ought to bo thankful for that. Perhaps the head of every family, unless it be the editors of newspapers, is this year en abled to purchase his own turkey, cranberry sauce, mince pie, celery, oysters, etc., and thus feel the spirit of independence. The class excepted may, however, regale themselves with promises made by delinquents of paid up subscriptions at the end of the year which never cornea, and feel contented in the resolve they have made to extend no more credit in the future. The day this year will be spent as usual. There will be services at the churches and tbe congregations of the Methodist, Baptist and Presbyterian churhes will join with that of St. John's Episcopal in services at the latter church. The Y. M C. A. will keep epen house, and will furnish amuse ment for the people as per program in another column. TURKEY GIVEN A twenty-pound turkey will be given away at the White Eagle saloon, Wednesday evening, to some lucky per son. Neal Brown Discusses What Wis consin Democrats Should Do. From Mil. Jonmi of Nov. 18th. To the Editor of The Journal: You ask me for nr,y opinion as to w hat the Democratic oarty in Wisconsin should do to prepart for the next campaign. I am not specially fond of post-mortem investigations, and I fancy that what 1 may suggest as to our future course may seem trite. Our partv should not adopt any merely opportunist policies. We should adhere to the axiom that the people cannot put a political party in power by large majorities with the assurance of practically an unlimited lease of power, and expect good gov ernment. We cannot have good government from any political party very long un der such conditions. We have had bad government in this state, and it is likely to continue, for the leaders of the Re publican party arc apt to assume that the endorsement the party has received sanctions alike its good and its bad policies. Our campaign from now on should be waged against extravagance in the expenditure of public funds, against the prostitution of the public offices of the state through the organi zation of state officials and employes into a corrupting body of political heelers and thimble riggers, and against the gross abuses in the system of accounts air! in the receipt and ex penditure of public funds that have grown up m every branch of state gov ernment. We should emphasize the difference between the economical ad ministration of Gov. Peck for four years, and the present law less and ex travagant administration of state affairs. The large increase in the expenses of certain departments of state govern ment shows conclusively that sinecures have multiplied, and that the party in power, intoxicated by repeated suc cesses, believes that it can remain in power no matter what it may establish in the way of bad government. Our party should continue to adhere to the doctrines of equal and just taxa tion announced in the Milwaukee plat form the present y ear. The silly propa ganda of one faction of the Republican party that it has discovered and is en titled to a patent on this doctrine should be met witli our sturdy protest. Their attitude is a perverted usurpation of a principle which has the support of ait good citizens. We should favor a con servative and reasonable primary elec tion law, not consenting, however, to any impracticable law proposed by closet dreamers or by self seeking poli ticians who may design to use such a law to build up their power. A primary election law must of neces sity be tentative in its beginnings and proceed along corset cative lines until trial and experience have finally per fected it. We should proclaim with unabated vigor the fundamentals of our creed on questions of national policy, and oppose the present excessive protective tariff, and all subsidies and bounties, or other form of special privilege. The effront ery of Republican leaders in charging the responsibility for the panic of 1893 to the Democratic party should be met in argument, with the facts of history; with the fact that the way for that panic was paved under the Harrison ad ministration, by the passage of the Sherman silver law, by the unprece dented exports of gold that took place all through the year 1892, when the Re publican party was in power; with the tact that imports of foreign goods were greater under the Harrison administra tion than they were under the Cleve land administration. We should make of the Republican argument on this matter a two-edged sword, for if the Democratic party caused the panic of 1893, then the Republican party caused the panic of 1873 which came when that party was in power and under a high protective tariff, a panic which lasted live years, and that was in all of its aspects almost an exact duplicate of the panic of 1393. Both of these panics have demonstrated that a high protec tive tariff will not save us from panics or from hard times. NEAL BROWN. SCRAPS. It is worth something to tiud out what we can’t do * The silent admiration of a man is like wine; spoken, it is like hopey. * * Two mothers wore heard discussing their children. “Well,” said one, “1 wonder every day what new crochets the children have in their beads.” A horrible vision cf red worsted and a long crochet hook came into my mind until I realized that the woman prob ably meant “crotchets ” * * * We should be thankful — That there are no noisy street cars to disturb the Sunday quiet of our streets, to scare horses, and to gather in all our nickels. That by crossing the bridge we can see a fae simile of an old-fashioned country road, with its delightful soft deep rich mud, through which horses toil patiently dragging their heavy loads, as in the dear old days of long ago. That the opera house management kindly permits pop corn to be sold during the performance of a play, even though the rattling of paper bags, as we reach into them for the dainty, is some what distracting. That the whistles in the early morn ing hours are both loud and long. That our school children have not “struck” vet, even though some of them may have been struck. That the Ith of July is still soma sev ed months off. That we have thus far escaped Uncle Tom’s Cabin, and Carrie Nation. Pilgrim. AID FOR HIGH SCHOOL. State Supt, L. 1), Harvey has made the annual apportionment of state aid for free high schools. The law pro vides that a fund of SIOO,OOO shall be distributed among these schools each year. Except in the ease of the nine township high schools. which receive an amount equal to one-half of what they expend for instruction, the apportion ment is based on the number of pupils and instructors iu each school. There are three classes of these schools— township schools and those with four and three year courses. The apportion ment for the Wausau high school is $458.06 an> for that of Unity $255 50. NOTICE.

The students hare begun work upon two good choruses—“ Over the Dancing Sea” and * Silent Night.” Miss Tawcett has returned to school after in unavoidable absence of more than a week od account of sickness in the family. A number of beautiful plants, loaned by Mrs. Garske, have been received by the school during the past week, the most beautiful being a large oleander in full bloom. Mrs, Johns and Mrs. Gehrke spent a short time at the Training school on Thursday. Mrs. Meyer was also pres ent and remained through the after noon. The faculties of training schools will assemble in Madison, December sth and 6th. Mr. Wells and Miss Bohref will present papers upon important features of training school work. Members of the various training school boards expect to be present. Mrs. Sanborn and Mrs. Garske were visitors at the school during the pro gress of the literary society program on Friday last. Avery interesting ques tion for debate stirred the enthusiasm and eloquence of many members of the society for some time. Mr. Sam Wel land made a reputation in a very short time and was chosen president of the society. On Wednesday afternoon of the past week Mrs. Claire Bird gave a most in teresting description of the Coronation services of King Edward VII, as wit nessed by herself and Mr. Bird during the past August. The close attention given by the students during the hour testified to the deep interest taken in this most instructive talk. We hope it is but oue of a long series to be given by *he ladies of the literary club during the coming winter. Y. M. C. A. NOTES. The 63 boys, who attended the Friday night social, appeared to enjoy them selves. Several short addresses, some excellent selections on the gramaphone and a liberal supply of Physical Direc tor Stafford’s choice popcorn, kept everyone good natured. We expect to have a mmiber of those pleasant even ings during the winter. Assistant Y. M C. A. State Secretary, Charles Puehler, addressed our Sunday meeting. Fifty boys and men listened with interest, and we hope profit to his earnest words on the value of a clean life. On next Sunday afternoon Prof. J. M. Coyner will speak to men on the subject of “Ten years personal exper ience among the Mermans in Salt Lake City.” This will be tbe first of a series of addresses on Mormonism by Mr. Coy per. The professor is thoroughly famil iar with the question, having made an exhaustive study of the subject. The floor space of the gymnasium was taxed to its uunost last night, forty men being on the floor at one time. On Thanksgiving day, refreshments will be served during the afternoon and evening. At 3:30 a game of base ball will be played between tbe Business men and Seniors. In the evening a program consisting of dumb-bell drill, horse work, mat work, potato race and rope vault will be given.

It is reported that a deal was con summated in Wausau, on Friday last, by which 500,000,000 feet of standing pine, and the land on which the pine is ’ growing, changed hands. The tract comprises 33,000 acres, and is located ! in the state of Mississippi, near Laurel, | in the counties of Jones and Wayne, I about 90 miles from Mobile, one of tbe largest cities in the South. The land and timber was purchased from Michi gan parties by Messrs. J. D. Ross, C. J- ! Winton, W. H. Bissell and Jacob Mor tenson. At Laurel, a distance of about fifteen to twenty miles, are three trunk | lines aDd there is a railroad laid out, I and which will be built in the near! future, which touches the western part 1 of the tract. This deal has been in progress for some time and such able cruisers as Angus McDonald and August and William Ziebell, of this city, Wm. Corcoran, of Grand Rapids, and Mr. Hesse, of Iron River, have been en gaged in estimating this timber. The company will, no doubt, put in a mill and manufacture the timber. At the rate of manufacturing 20,000,000 feet a year, it will take twenty-five j years to exhaust the tract, but it is ’ probable that a large plant will be erected, but in any event, with the other timber that will be brought there to he manufactured, the company will do business there for the next tweuty five or thirty years. ANOTHER HOLD UP. We are called upon occasionally in this paper to record the fact that a citi zen has been beld-up by footpads and robbed of his valuables but such a mis hap is not so bad as that which happens to the trusting citizen who goes to a merchant and purchases goods and is first held up for the price of the same and afterwards finds he has beeu rob bed also so far as the value and reliabil ity of the same are concerned. At Seim Bros, you experience no hold-ups, you merely place your money on deposit until you are satisfied. A tine line of underwear is now being made a spea ialty of at this store. There are suits to fit the person. If you a>e warm blooded you can find light suits of line texture that will answer your needs ; if you have icicles running down your shoulder blades you can get the kind that is spun right off *he lamb's back and all fleece line , these will keep your blood and marrow from congeal ing. Don’t go into the dark alley of un reliable goods and prices and get held up but visit the store of daylight deal ing, where goods and prices are on the square and where methods of dealing are as.open as a book. A PROTEST. The Armour Packing Cos. has inti mated that it wH, in ti a near future, move its offices from tl.ij city to Merril and conduct the business from this sec tion of Northern Wisconsin from that point hereafter. This is a move which the company should consider well, be fore undertaking. The people of Wau sau have, since the branch house was established here, through their local, meat dealers and otherwise, patronized this company to a liberal degree, and now that the concern lias established a good trade the people do not consider it an act ©f gratitude for it to move its offices elsewhere. This is :i good live town—one of the best in Wisconsin— and will continue to be so in the years to come, and we can see no reason for the change. It has also been intimated that Merrill may in time be made the distributing point, and in this also we think the company will err, for in Wau sau there is railroad competition, while in Merrill there is none. The regular monthly meeting of the W. C. T. U. will be held in the Presby terian church next Friday afternoon, at 3 o’clock. The program will be as follows : Devotional* Mrs. C. S. Gilbert Business.

A report was circulated around town Sunday morning that Jos. Noiseanx had committed suicide in the county jail by cuttirg his throat with a pocket knife.

A most enjoyable time was had by all present aud never were the words, “many happy returns of the day,” said with more sincerity than by the guests upon their departure. A play of more than passing interest will be presented on Saturday night, Nov. 29. at the Grand opera house. It is indeed a treat to think that at last we will be given an opportunity of seeing anew actor on the stage,* While the character of Moses Levi is that of a Re fa.rw, still Mr. Morris plays the part in a most artistic manner, and in no way burlesques the race. “The Peddler’s Claim” affords great chances for scenic effects and Manager Marks has been very liberal in giving his star a com plete production. Prices 25-85-50 cents. The fire department was called out twice on Saturday evening. The first alarm was occasioned by the burning of an old blacksmith shop near the site of the old Munson mill. It had lately been fixed up, one portion for a dwelling house the other for a barn. It was totally destroyed. When the depart ment was on its way home another call was sounded. This time a chimney lire at the boarding house of Alfred Larson, on First Ave. caused an uneasi ness for the occupants of the house for a little time. CHURCH NOTES. BAPTIST. Rev. Adam Fawcett.
