Pablished weekly and entered at thePostOffice at Wausau as second class matter. The Political Outlook. The spirit of the Chicago convention of ’9O snatched democracy from its death-bed, infused into it new life, and kept it during two presidential’cam paigns the most vigorous political party that has ever existed in this country. We speak, as it seems to ns, advisedly and conservatively when we say this. It should go almost without saying, among unprejudiced people, when a party has been able to cast almost half the entire vote-of the nation during two presidential campaigns, without a cam paign fund, as against a party whose campaign fund was limited only by the amount it saw lit to ask. The demo cratic party has, since the Chicago con vention, shown the nation the greatest exhibition of political virility ever seen in this country. We do not except the republican party in 1860. That party had an abundance of campaign funds, and it only won through the disruption of the democratic party. And yet today the immediate future of the democratic party is something which no one can foretell. The ele ment within the party which well nigh killed it during Mr. Cleveland's second administration, and which deserted it and went over to the republicans dur ing the last two presidential campaigns still hangs on to it, dragging it back ward and downward to the low ideals which wrecked its fortunes then. And now, in this year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and two, and of J. Pierpont Morgan the first (or there about) the conundrum which the wire pullers are vainly trying to solve is: Which party will get the next big campaign contribution from the trusts? And around this central conundrum are many others. Will Roosevelt make any serious effort to curb the trusts ? If he does will his efforts have sufficient backing with a republican congress to bo effective ? If his party in congress should ignore tin; trust question, will be nevertheless be nominated as their presidential candidate ? If he should be, would the trusts prefer a republican trust congress with a republican anti trust president, or a democratic anti trust congr<?j and a democratic trust preside at ? The democratic party has not blun dered since 1893 when, with the aid of republican capitalists it. elected Grover Cleveland. During the last two presi dential campaigns it lias been frank, outspoken, honest, and consistent. But there is a sort of political proverb that the democratic party does always man age to make a stupendous political blunder just in the nick of time to save the republican party. Such was the blunder committed by Mr. Cleveland during his last administration, in ignor ing and preventing tariff reform, although he was elected upon that issue. The Chicago convention, and its candidate, Mr. Bryan, almost accomplished the hopeless task of retrieving the party from that blunder, which two years before, in the fall of 1894, had given the party the worst defeat it ever experienced in a congres sional election. The results of last month’s election do not seem at all oucouraging to those who were inclined to follow the “expe diency” school of politicians. In uo state where their views were adopted has the party met with success. On the other hand it may well be believed that in those states the party has lost much in losing the confidence of its niost|sincere supporters. An off" year is expected to reduce the administrations strength in congress; the last election has hardly come up to the average iu this respect. From the present outlook, about the only thing that may with certainty be expected is a phenomenal growth in the socialist vote. As to what the two lead ing parties may do no one eau at pres ent foretell with much confidence. Senatok John C. Spooner has at last come out and aononueed his can didacy for re-election to the l\ S. Sen ate. A noticeable thing is that he does not do so to half breed, but does it through the man who was pitted against Gov. LaFollette and was at the head of the Stalwart element. Mr. Spooner did not declare himself upon the re pub licau state i 'itforu l but, he figures he: eau be elect* without doing that. The Stalwart pa sword- "Anything to save Spooner.*' It is rumored that the huuber jacks of Norther* Wisconsin are going to or ganise a labor union. The Chicago. Milwaukee A St. Paul railway people purpose to give the log gers all the cars they want this winter, and to that end every flat car idle anywhere has been hauled into the shops to U pot in condition for log hauling. For the f >st few winters, since nearly all the mills have been operated winter L'me, there has been a scarcity of cars NOTES FROM THE AMERICAN LUMBERMAN, Walter Alexander, manager of the Alexander Stewart Lumber company, Wausau, W is, was in Chicago last Saturday, accompanied by bis wife. They were on their way to French Lick Springs, lnd , where they intended to remain a week or two. Mr. Alexander regretted greatly that, his plans had been so arranged that he was prevented from attending the convention of lum ber manufacturers atSt. Louis this week bnt stated that he w: s heartily in sym pathy with the movement. * * * Ti>e Werheim Manufacturing com pany is doing an excellent business in sasb, door anti mill work, as well as in hemlock and hardwood lumber. Man ager J. 11. Reiser states that the de mand for stock might be better but he looks for an improvement early in tiie new year. The factory of this com pany is in better shape than ever to turn out good work. A specialty made of basswood siding, ceiling, moulding, etc., and in this respect the company is particularly well situated, being enabled to ship mixed cars of lumber and mill work to the retail: rade. Now that the political campaign is ended Manager Reiser has been relieved of considerable responsibility, he hat ing been chairman of the democratic county committee, which required a great deal of attention previous to election. lie looks several years younger than he did two months ago. * * Many of the lumbermen in the Wis consin valley are buying permanent homrs in Wausau. A couple of years ago Harry Foster, then manage, of the Merrill Lumber company, bought a residence at Wausau and moved his family there from Merrill. Afterwards his b isiness compelled him to go south and he now makes his home at Little Rock. C. C Yavkey, of the Yawkey Lumber company, Hazelliurst, some time ago built a beautiful home at Wau. sau, anl uot loog ago Mr. Wilson, of the Salsich & Wilson company, Star Lake, purchased a home at Wausau. The last arrival is W. H. Bisselll, man ager of the Iloss Lumber company, Arbor Vitae, who is now completing an elegant residence in Wausau and ex pects to move in with his family in a few days Wausau is fast becoming the home of successful lumber manufac turers of the Wisconsin valley. Its many educational and other advantages make it a most desirable place in w hich to reside. HEMLOCK TRADE IS SATISFAC TORY. Speaking of the hemlock trade sit uation, Lamar Sexmith, of Wausau, who handles considerable hemlock and hard woo I lumber, reports a heavy demand this fall at satisfactory prices. Some of the Wisconsin Valley pine man ufacturers have recently advanced piece stuff 50 cents above '..lie association list and it is Mr Sexmitb’s opinion that this indicates a scarcity ia pine which will act benelieally upon hemlock values. Mr. Sexmith has a fair stock of ln-mlock on hand anil considerable basswood, which he works into specialties for shipping in mixed car lots to the retail trade with hemlock lumber, at the mill at Kelly, Wausau. The ci ming winter Mr. Sexmith purposes to put in more timber than usual. lie is figuring on about 3,000,- 000 feet of hemlock, 3,000,000 feet of pine and 1,000,000 feet or more of hard wood lumber, all of which will be sawed at the Kelly mill with the exception of the hardwood, which he will saw at his mill on the Eau € aire river. Within the last few years Mr. Sexmith has aisiuii't'd extensive timber holdings in Marathon county. Last Wednesday ho sold to the G. D Jones company, of Wausau, over 2,000 acres of land, re taining the standing timber. Mr. Sexmith has been operating for himself at Wausau for the past four years and has become well known to the retail trade throughout the farming regions of the west owing to his ability to furnish mixed ears of hemlock and ( itu* lumber and basswood siding, ceil ing, etc. —American Lumbermen. WITHOUT FLAR OR FAVOR, There has been mere or less discus sion In the city papers, of late, relative to vice in our city. There eau be no argument that w ill justify the violation of a single law, either stare or city. Law s are made to insure a good gov ernment and to protect every citizen in his rights. The people, after careful consideration, and in many instances, after a long struggle, pass laws such as will work to the good of the greatest number; they then pay out their good hard earned money for officers to see that those laws are enforced. The Pilot believes that the most of our laws have been enforced, but those which tend to the stamping out of vice have been, to a certain extent, disre garded. This may be due, perhaps, to certain ones who have been placed in important appointive positions, who think that their peculiar ideas of mor ality are those which should be enter tained by every person iu the city. The Pilot is in the light, as it always has been, for good government, audit sp ■ :- i: eau- e \\itbsm fear or favor. It will “hew to the line, let the chips fall where they may,” ami it now gives notice that hereafter when a vio lation of law comes under its notice it will air the same and all who have any connection therewith. l3*e Scidii ‘U4ctjfctf Great 1 oil Jay oftenogs—Christmas ladies' waist sale.

A number of stock fanciers of this city and county have purchased of Mc- Laughlin Bros., ot Columbus, 0., a French coach stallion, paying for the same the sum of $3,000. The horse is a beauy; it has taken first premuim money at the Ohio state fair and also at the Chicago horse show aid will help im prove the stock of this county. His pedigree can lie traced back to 1680 and he was bred and registered under supervision of the F'reneh government and was brought to this country July 23d, of the present year. He has also been registered by the French Coach Horse society of America and certifi cates of both registers have been issued The horse was sold by Amos S. Leist, agent of McLaughlin Bros., who has sold horses throughout Wisconsin. The animal is now owned by a stock com pany aud 30 shares of stock have been issued at 1100 per share. There are twenty-eight share holders as follows: C. S Curtis R E. Parcher Dan Healy ¥. Devoe G. I). Jones M. G. Beilis John Manser A. L. Kreutzer Chas. Guenther Herman Weinkauf S. M Quaw B.

Do you skim it ?

The pensioners, who fought in the wars at that time, must be pretty old men by now. That’s about as long as we may expect to wait for the “new” government building.

When we got our bauds full of Cuba and Philippines the limit of our ability to hang onto a squirming, restless mass of half-breeds was about, reached. If in addition to this we have to tackle the whole Sooth America muss we may have to throw up the sponge. This posing as a great world power certainly has its draw backs. Milks Angcish.

It is curious to watch the faces of people as they enter the great doors of St. Ptrter's at Rome and push back the heavy leathern curtains that keep out the noise and the air and find them st Ives in the presence of the most im pressive spectacle on earth, as Byron said: Majesty, Power, priory, strength and beauty—all are aisled In this eternal ark of worship. It is easy to detect those who have never been there before and those who have become accustomed to its mag nitude and gorgeousness. It requires several visits to adjust the vision and the mind to its colossal proportions aid brilliant decorations and enable them to realize the vastness and the beauty of the scene. The more fre quently you visit St. Peter’s cathedral the greater and the more beautiful it becomes, and after a time you are en abled to drink in with complete satis faction the fullness of its area, its al titude and its magnificence. The cost of the building up to date has been more than $55,000,000, and the annual expense of maintaining it is about $55,000.

A student of natural history had been In the habit of immersing for preserva tion his different specimens of spiders and ants in bottles of alcohol. He saw that they struggled for a few minutes, but he thought that sensation was soon extinguished and that they were soon free from suffering. On one occasion he wished to pre serve a large female spider and twen ty-four of her young ones that he had captured. He' put the mother into a bottle of alcohol and saw that after a few moments she folded up her leg3 upon her body and was at rest. He then put into the bottle the young ones, who, of course, manifested acute pain. What was his surprise to see tho mother arouse herself from her lethar gy, dart around and gather her young ones to her bosom, fold her legs over them, again relapse into insensibility until at last death came to her relief and the limbs, no longer controlled by this maternal instinct, released their grasp and became dead!
