TUESDAY, JULY 21, 1003. üblished weekly and entered at the Post Office at Wausan as second class matter. The remains of Mrs. James G. Blaine will be laid beside those of her husband in Oakhill cemetery, Washington, D. C., today. Wednesday, July 15th, was one of the most desastrous days known on Wall street since May 9th, 1891. De moralization is said to have ruled in the stock market that day. One very un pleasant feature of the situation was that corporate Iborrowring’s seemed growing rather than lessening. What the autumn may bring creates some ap prehension. JUGE W. C. SILVERTHORN of WaU sau, who is spending a brief vacation at the hotel I’hster, is inclined to be a little despondent over the operations of Wall street. “Squeezing out stocks may be necessary,” he said, “but it is well to beware and not acquire a lack of con fidence. I don’t think they can pinch the lumber business, which is the main industry of Wisconsin, but they can do lots of harm to the iron industry of the Gogebic range. Tightening up the de mand for iron ore means a great deal up north, and unless the big liners take their regular cargoes to Cleveland, business soon begins to languish. I am not an alarmist, but I cannot help remarking that it is well to beware of a lack of confidence.” —Milwaukee Sentinel. The Milwaukee Journal quotes Neal Drown, of this city, as follows on the anti-movements in the democratic party : “Neal Brown, who is a member of the committee on resolutions in con nection with the Democratic meeting in Chicago today, states that as he understands it the committee will not meet for several days, perhaps weeks, to formulate its report. ‘So far as I am concerned,’ he stated, ‘I am op posed to any anti-Cleveland or any anti-Bryan resolutions. I am opposed to any self-constituted censors trying to read anybody in or out of the Demo cratic party.’ “I believe in reorganizing the party. Grant once said that the way to resume is to resume, and I believe that the w r ay to reorganize is to reorganize. We should get together on the fundamental principles of Democracy, and let every one in on that basis.’ ” The Cleveland Boom. Twenty-five, or even fifteen years ago, such a political movement as the pres ent “Cleveland boom” appears to be would have seemed quite a harmless little thing, to the average citizen. But we no longer do thiugs in the political held, as they were wont to be done a few years ago. A “Class” of men who have arrogated to themselves the title of “The business men of the nation,” has dictated who our president shall be, for sometime past, and they do not run things with display type, mass meet ings, brass bands, flags, or fire works. They know a more effectual way. They are, many of them, not honestly eutitled to be called “business men,” seeing that they have grown enor mously wealthy by “stock gambling,” “railroad wrecking,” “squeezing,” the exploitation of watered stocks, and other illegitimate methods of acquiring w’ealth. They are not honestly eutitled to call themselves democrats or republi cans, although some of them have worked with one and some with the other of these parties in the past for they have really no political creed, and only make use of political maehiuery to fur ther their own “business” schemes. The chief center and seat of power of these men is New York City. But they have numerous allies in all the large cities of this country. Members of the ‘class’’ just mentioned are responsible for the present “Cleveland boom.” That be ing the ease it is necessarily a very strong movement, if this class which has arrogated to itself the title of “The business men of the nation,” will unite in putting Mr. Cleveland forward, as a candidate. Will these self-styled “business men of the nation" unite upon Mr. Cleve land ? If they do, how is it possible to defeat hiui, in the light of past experi ence ? It is not sensible to pooh-pooh this question. “He would not get a corporal's guard of democratic votes.” Would he not ? He would get the votes of every Southern state. They are as sure to vote for the candidate of the democratic party, no matter who he is. as the New England and some other Northern states arc to vote for the re publican candidate, no matter who he is. In the middle states Cleveland would lose hundreds of thousands of democratic votes, but he would gain hundreds of thousands of republican votes. It is not for nothing that the leading republican newspapers of the country have been educating their leaders for many years past to look up on Mr. Cleveland as a great, good and wise man. These newspapers which are usually owned by the "class’’ above referred to have, perhaps, been “cast ing an anchor to windward.’’ They generally have a purpose when they do things. In the North-western ?.nd Western states, Cleveland might not get more than 1 a corporal's guard” of democra tic votes, and he might not get many republican votes, but this would not affect the result in the electoral college, for those states, will nearly all go re publican any way. It is not the “popular vote” that the Cleveland boomers are going after. It is the electoral they want. And if they can succeed in controlling the next national convention of the demo cratic party, they will nominate Cleve land, and then, unless they can get an absolute promise from Roosevelt that he will behave himself, and be good, they will elect Cleveland, or, if they do not, they will meet with their first de feat. They have already placed Cleveland in the White House twice, as a warning to the republican party, and they have not the least doubt of being able to do it again if they can get him nominated. Let us not be foolish enough to think that the tariff issue will frighten any one from voting for Cleveland. He never hurt the tariff when he had a chance to. Of course he was elected to “reform” the tariff. But he didn’t dc it. And he wont do it. He wont do anything that would hurt his New York cronies, who control the trusts. He will talk, maybe, about trusts, and the tariff. But they know him, and they know they can trust him. If they can control our next nat ional convention. It all depends on that. Will they do it?” They are organized. The rank and file of oi <’ party is not well organized. Wm. J. Bryan, through his paper, The Com moner, has been trying to a.’ouse the democratic voters, to get them to organize local Clubs. He has been, to some extent, successful, but not to any great extent. All Democrats, should awaken to an understanding that the caucus and the convention will determine the future of their Darty for the next four years. All democrats who do not desire Mr. Cleve land as their next candidate for the presidency should realize that there is probably only one way to prevent it and that is to organize now and be ready to defeat the efforts of the “re organizers,” who will be on the ground in some shape or other trying to fix things, unless alert sentinels are on the watch to thwart them. It would be a greater disgrace, and a greater political damage to the demo cratic party to nominate and elect Mr. Cleveland, after he has twice voted and worked for the republican candidate, than it would be to be defeated twenty times, while following paths of consist ancy and honesty. It is no satisfaction to win an election when you are wroDg. It is on the con trary a shame and disgrace to be wrong, and the shame is intensified by winning. But to be right, and to make a vigorous fight for democratic principles is a great satisfaction, whether the battle be lost or won. As it Works in Wausau. The Board of Review, which has been in session this month, finds that one of the governor’s pet schemes, that looked so nice on paper, tends to operate just the reverse of the way it was intended. This year there will be a loss of about SIOO,OOO from the tax rolls of a year ago, just through the working’s of the mortgage taxation law and the in creased number of exemptions of dif ferent classes of property. The officials not having completed their work, it is impossible at this time to give exact figures, but with the ratio determined by a comparison of the figures that are at hand, with the roll of last year, a fair estimate can be made. Through out Marathon county conditions are the same. The operation of this law removes from the personal tax list a vast amount of property—an amount it is thought that will nearly equal tha total mortgage assessment of last year which was about $1,750,000. At present the tax rate for Marathon county is $.0271, which will have to be greatly in creased next year to raise the necessary taxes. It does not matter what amount of property is made exempt from taxa tion through the passage of certain laws, there must be so much money raised to meet the expenses of government—paying salaries of game wardens, etc. If a money lender crawls out of paying a proportionate amount of taxes, and a poor man finds lie has to pay more, through the raising of the tax rate, who is benetitted by such a measure ? Certainly not the latter class. Marathon county is fortunate as regards the working of this law, for we have but few mortgages, compared with the older counties of the state. It is early yet, but with the adjournment of boards of review in the different cities there comes a wail of protest, the reverberation of which will be heard in thunder tones a year hone**. B. F. McMillan, the philoso pher of Marathon county, and oue of the few men in Wis consin that ever enjoyed the per sonal acquaintance of the lost Dauphin of France, was in the city for a brief visit Saturday, and started for home in the afternoon. He lives in the town of McMillan, most of which he personally as sisted in chopping out of the woods, and probably takes more comfort to the square foot than auy man in the state. “There is not much except pros perity for a lumberman to talk about," he said. “Business is climbing right along, aud I have had to hire au extra clerk, whose sole duty is to mark up price lists, and even then I can not always keep up with tho other firms. It is really wonderful to see the de mand there is for anything that looks like lumber, no matter what wood it may be made out of, and there is also the comfort of know ing that so far no Edison has ap peared with a process to convert POPE LEO XIII DEAD. There is great sorrow an I mourning throughout the civilized world over the death of Pope Leo XIII, which occurred at 4:04 o’clock, Monday, July 20, 1903. The pontiff was a great and good man and respected and esteemed by everybody, irrespective of religious oe liefs. His life has been devoted to good deeds and he was a friend to every good movement. Throughout this country all are singing praises. A Protestant journal, the Churchman paye him this tribute : Pope Leo’s career was a very remark able one, strikingly illustrating the tra ditional democratic character of the Roman hierarchy. He was boru at Carpineto, near Anagni. in Italy, on March 2, 1810, eldest of four children. The father was a colonel uuder Napo leon and the famil}’ had long enjoyed local distinction. He was educated by the Jesuits and made priest in Decem ber, 1837. His diplomatic abilities at tracted attention soon after his ordina tion, and when but 33 he was sent as papal nuncio to Brussels, and in 1846 made archbishop of Perugia. He was promoted to the cardinalate in 1853, and served in that high office for a quar ter of a century, the number of the ye(irs of his pontificate.

A GREAT FAIR. The Marathon County Fair is going to be a record breaker this year and in point of exhibit and attractions will class with the famous Elkhorn Fair. It rests with the people of Marathon county to make it the best'county fair iu the state in point of attendance. There are 41 horses entered in the three stake races, and with the horses entered in the class races, one of the best and largest fields of horses ever seen in Wisconsin will come for the word. The cattle and stock show will out rank any ever held in this part of the state, the following breeders outside of Marathon county having already made entries: F. W. Harding, Waukesha; A. A. Arnold, Galesville; C. E. Blodgett, Marshfield; Benson & Anderton, Sher ry, Short Horn cattle; C. L. Underwood Son, Avoca; J. W. Martin, Riehlaud Citv; A. Dutton & Sons, Trempelesu, and Wm. Radtke, Black Earth, Wis., red poll cattle. Underwood also enters Berkshire hogs and Lincoln sheep. C. L. Hill, of Rosendale, writes that he will see that Fred. Rietbrock, of Athens, has competition in Guernsey ca'tle. A big drawing card for the breeders of Wisconsin will be the farewell bau quet ♦j be given Prof. Carlyle, who is to Ii jo dare of stock at the fair. Prof. Canylc, who has done so much for the live stock interests of the state, goes to Colorado in October to take a position at the head of the State Agricultural college. The committee in charge of the banquet is : C. 1). Rosa, of Beloit, secretarj 7 of the Short Horn Breeders’ association; C. L. Hill, of Rosendale, secretary Western Breeders' associa tion; H. P. West, Fayettville Wis., sec retary Swine Breeders’ association; W. Guilford, live stock editor of the Wis consin ‘Agriculturist, Racine; Waller Alexander, G. I). Jones and L. K. Wright, of Wausau. This banquet will bring more prominent stock men of Wisconsin to Wausau than any event ever held here. It behooves our farm ers to make a fine display of their farm products at the fair, that our visitors may see what Marathon county soil is capable of. The stock sale on Friday, Sept. 4th, will also be a large draw ing card, and a great opportunity for farmers inter ested in good stock to buy a few head of good breeding stock. The cattle parade on Sept. 3rd. fol lowing the expert judging will be worth going miles to see. The management has fixed the race track, ar ’ is adding 83 feet to the grand sta 04.0 4 . has built anew stallion barn, 15 new box stalls for race horses, anew house for care taker of the grounds and has repainted all the old building Good clean tent shows of trained animals and acrobats have lieon en gaged. Excursion trains will be run where necessary and reduced railroad rates have been secured. The Marathon county Fair has a rep utation for polling off all it adver tises and every person ir the county should make arrageniems to attend this great event. It is ®ur fair and we should l>e. proud of it and help the management make it a success. The sale of “Blue Ribbon” flour ex ceeds that of any other brands at the stores of Max E. Boehm. jl6-tf the very difficult political sitnation created by that intransigent pontiff with singular ability, and though de prived of temporal sovereignty exer cised a political influence greater than that achieved by auy of his predeces sors since the Middle Ages. It is note worthy that his first encyclical, that of Dec. 28, 1878, was an endeavor to deal w ith the political situation created by the spread of Communism, Nihilism anil that form of Socialism which al lowed international sympathies to con tradict national obligation. Through out his pontificate social and political interests have had his constant care, anti he has urged in every nation, save, perhaps, Italy, the duty of loyal citizen ship. He has beer, recognized as a judicial arbitrator in international dis putes. Kings and emperors have sought liis counsel. He has borne his honors with exemplary dignity. He has been imposing in stately functions, fatherly in personal intercourse, adding to a gracious humor the amenities of a ripe scholarship. The limitations of his statesmanship were largely inherent in the papal system. He seemed at times to follow the counsels of his ecclesiasti cal diplomats rather than his scholarly ;ulvisers. But he was capable of an en lightened bolduess, as he showed in founding his Biblical commission and in opening the treasures of the Vatican library to every accredited search for truth.” ANNUAL REPORT.

To read the Bible through in a year me,ir° reading three chapters every weekday and five chapters each Sun day. All the letters of the alphabet are conialned in the twenty-first verse of the seventh chapter of Ezra. The Bible was not divided into chap ters, as it Is now, until the thirteenth century. Early Hebrew Bibles were marked into sections and verses by means of accents, which served as marks to be observed in the eastern manner of reading. The work of di viding the Bible into chapters has been attributed by some to Stephen Lang tou. The division into verses was made by a printer of the name of Robert Stephens in 1548 and was adopted throughout all editions.
