Professor Langley this and Prof
fessor Langley that! Huh! What is
the matter with him? He’s all light.
The war department foots the bills to
the tune of 850,000. What is the matter
with the newspapers that are trying to
make out Professor Langley to be
crazy, and the war department wise?.
Here is a suggestion all our own, and
a good one, too: Let the democratic
convention nominate two candidates
for president,—Hearst and Cleveland,
and the republicans two, —Roosevelt
and Hanna, and let the voters of each
party take their choice. We expect to
get a copyright on this as soon as we
get a minute’s time.
The national committee of the re
publican party met in Washington last
Saturday and set the date for holding
the next national convention, which is
on the 21st day of June, and Chicago
was selected as the place of meeting.
The sentiment seemed to be in favor of
the nomination of Roosevelt for presi
Some few weeks ago, when most of
the daily papers were expecting a sud
den clash of arms between Russia and
Japan, The Pilot ventured a guess that
Cb : na contained territory enough to
satisfy the land grabbing propensities
of both. And so it seems to have turned
out. Russia gets Manchuria and
.Japan gets Corea. China retains
nominal sovereignity over these coun
tries, but Russia and Japan do not oare
for that. They get all they asked for.
The other powers do not like this,
but they can lump it. Russia and
Japan, together, can defy them all to
come twelve thousand miles from home,
and tight the Czar and the Mikado
at home.
We make a motion that the IT.l T . S.
Senate be abolished while Teddy is
president. It must be terrible for such
a strenuous soul as Teddy, who is
capable of managing all the affairs of
the earth, both temporal and religious,
with one hand tied behind his back, if
we only gave him half a chance, to have
his treaties —insignificant little treaties,
affecting only such small matters as
Cuba and Panama, stolidly laid aside
by that portly body of easy going seTta
tors, and hung up for a few weeks, and
then critically examined and discussed
up one side and down the other during
the long session. Too bad. The sug
gestion of several republican papers
that the U. S. Senate is a nuisance is
surely worth thinking about, ©n the
other hand there are a good many old
fogies in the country who are such back
numbers that they do not feel a bit
worried when they see the Senate going
deliberately about important matters.
We must own up to belonging to this
class. We like these occasional evi
dences that the legislative branch of
our government is more than a mere
machine to perform the will of the
executive. And at this tune, when the
house of representatives seems to re
gard its whole duty to be to do what it
is ordered to do, we feel a good deal
safer when we hear the U. S. Senate
come out with a quiet but effective
“Whoa there, Teddy. Whoa Jack! Easy
over the stones!’’

Wall Street and Roosevelt.
When the Wall street leaders were
contributing hundreds of thousands of
dollars to defeat W’. J. Bryan, l “publi
can papers found no terms too superla
tive to be used in-firaise of their patriot
ism, honesty, and sound business judg
And it an* these men who dejeated Bryan.
Now these same men are trying to de
feat Roosevelt, or at least it is so
claimed by republican newspapers.
These men have not changed, they
are the same men, with the same inter
est at heart, and if it he true that they
are determined to beat Roose
velt, k go -s without saying, as any one
must admit, that they oppose him for
the very reasons that made them oppose
And why was that ? Let the republi
can papers say why. Take the Milwau
kee Sentinel as a witness. In its issue
of yesterday it said the opposition to
Roosevelt in New York “is centered in
a clique, the members of which have too
particular sympathy with the cardinal
principles of any party.”
How often the Pilot has described
these men in just that way,—as men
who are at heart, neither democrats
nor republicans, but are simply exploit
ers of political parties, using them as
means to serve their own selfish inter
ests. They are not afraid of platforms,
which they have found to lie mere
shams, or vote catching devices. They
are afraid of honest determined men.
They could not manage Bryan and
would not have him. Again the Sen
tinel says: “Those men are neither
statesmen nor political leaders in any
form, but they are men who are ever
ready to trade their influence for the assur
ance that their selfish interests shall he sub
served in defiance of ] üblic yood and the
law of the land."
This seems a strange statement com
ing from a leading republican paper.
For although the Sentinel feels it to be
necessary to couple this statement with
a further assertion, and argument that
“It was uot the Wall street influence
that elected the republican tickets in
189(5 anil 1900,” it will find very few be
lievers of that statement among the
intelligent voters of its own party. If
what the Sentinel says is true, the aid
furnished by Wall street to the republi
can party in 1890 and 1900 must have
been a case where “The Street,”
“traded its influence for an
assurance that its selfish interests
should be subserved in defiance
of public good and the law of the
land.” Well, if the republican party is
going to reform itself by discarding
Wall street, the Pilot is heartily glad
of it. That will be a glorious day for
the country when the republican party
drops these men, and tries to win with
out their help. The democrats dropped
them in 1900. It will be a cold day in
Wall street when these exploiters of
pol ?t icul parties for personal ends wake
up and find that instead of having two
parties begging for campaign funds as
they had in the Cleveland age, there is
no party at all that cares a snap for
their influence.
Gov. LaFollette made a speeeh at
Neillsville Saturday, at which time it
was thought that he was goiug to an
nounce that he would make the run for
a third time for Governor, but he just
went along and said nothing about it,
and so he keeps them guessing.
The Scientific American has issued an
other special number, this time devoted
to tlic iron and steel industry of the
United States. Technically considered,
the numberisoneof the best of the spec
ial issues which have so far been pre
pared by the Scientific American. Each
article bears the stamp of abso
lute certainty of fact—-a certainty gained
by a personal examination of each of
the plats described. Instead of giving
a condensed account of a large number
of less important works, the editors have
wisely adopted the plan of selecting a
certain number of large industrial estab
lishments, and of giving them a very
thorough description. Amongthe more
notable articles of the issue may be men
tioned those on armor plate and gnu
steel, structural shapes, tube making,
chain making, steel and wire making,
and rail making. The number is di cased
in a handsome colored cover.
Progress vs. Prejudice
Rev. Dr. llongau Dix. pastor of Trin
ity church, New York, in an interview
upou a subject which to be caus
ing lmn much trouble, viz: “woman - ’ is
reported to have said:
“I am sick at heart over the women.
Man used to regard women with such
reverence. W hen 1 was a boy all boja
of geuerous spirit looked up to her. hi
these days women have come down to
oiw level, tfiey were womanly aud now
they are ceasing to be. Nowdays they
talk like men and do all things that men
do. If there is anything men despise it
is a liiauuisli woman. All this comes
from leaving the womanly things of life
aud invading the spin re of men. W oinati
should never vote or be doctors, law -
yers or ministers.”
It is safe to say that Dr. l>ix is no more
sick at heart over tin women than the
women are sick at heart over such men
as he, who have fought -very step in the
progress of women from learning to
read aud w rite to having the ballot. One
would imagine from the utterance of
some of these men that the acme of
alt evil was doing anything like a man.
Had Dr. Dix lived a century ago lie
would have written as did Dr. Gregory
who was considered standard authority
at that time upou female propriety. In
his book entitled, “Legacy to My Daugh
ters,” lie said: "If you happeu to have
any learning, keep it a protound secret,
especially from men, who look with a
jealous, malignant eye on a woman of
a cultured understanding. ’ He also said
“Should you happen by nature to pos
sess a robust constitution assimilate such
sickly delicacy as is necessary to the fe
male charm,”
In strong contrast to these utterances
of Dr. Dix vve are cheered by those of
Rev. Dr. Newell Dwight Hillis pastor of
Ply mouth church, Brooklyn, given at
about the same time. Dr. Hillis said in
“Women in spite of man’s refusal ti*
give them the rights and privileges to
which they are entitled, are today in 145
branches of business aud in instances
show ing more ability than men.”
‘ln Hity years tiie women will know
more than the men. They have more
time to reail and study aud they are im
proving their time. Eventually they will
vote themselves and tell the men w hom
to vote for. There is a lesson of rebuke
in this for men.”
“Eventually all the universites will be
co-euucational, and the women will car
ry off all the prizes. That’s what they
are afraid of in the colleges which w ill
not allow women. The w omen study
while the young men are educating the
calves of their legs. The women are
writing our novels; the best portrait
painter is a woman; recently a woman
took the highest possible prize in math
Had it not been for the few generous
and noble men like Dr. Hillis, who have
over stood ready to accord to women
equal lights and opportunities with
themselves, it is doubtful if women
could have arisen out of the ignorance
and subjected position which they occu
pied in this country no longer than TOO
years ago.
Milwaukee Journal: (Shifter.)—There
is bui one way to reduce taxation—
that is, to reduce expenditure. If the
taxing authorities spend lavishly, they
must tax heavily. Shifting the burden
will not lighten it. Y\ hetber from rail
roads, insurance compardes, licenses,
real or personal property, under what
ever guise, it is still taxes. Shifting
the burden may or may not equalize
taxation, but it will not reduce it.

Roman Catholic Bishop Buys Wat - j
ren’s Para Austin for $330,000.
The following is taken from the Chi- i
eagu Tribune of Dec. lttlf, and relates j
to Andrew Warren, so well known in I
onr city Mr, Warren, at one time, |
owned most of the land which now |
comprises the city of Wausau:
liie last big farm in Chicago has j
been sold aud will be a farm no more.
It is known as Warren’s park, was sit
uated in Austin, and contained 163
acres, all inside the city limits, nearly
all of which was devoted to farming
purposes. The purchaser is the Ro
man Catholic bishop of Chicago, and
the tract may be used for the proposed j
seminary for the education of Roman
Catholic priests.
Warren’s park is fenced on every
side, and extends from Adams street
south to the tracks of the Great West
ern railway at Taylor street, and from
Austin to Central avenues. During
thirty years the land has been owned
by Andrew Warren, who has resided
alone vdtb his dog in a large farmhouse
surrounded by big elm trees in the cen
ter tf the property.
f'tr. W,iT*fen, who was 90 years old
this month, has resented the intrusion
eveu of au occasional visitor. The
entire farm comprises 180 acres, but
only 103 of these were purchased, the
remainder being twenty-two lots and
the railway rignt of way. The Elgin
and Chicago electric line and the subur
ban liue of the Consolidated Traction
company through the property.
North of the electric Hue’s right of
way a large crop of timothy hay w r as
grown this year, and south of the track
corn was planted. Mr. Warren per
sonally has not attended to the crops
during many years Instead he leases
to farmers in the neighborhood.
The transfer was recorded as from
the Warrens to the Chicago Title and
Trust company, and the consideration
was named as $330,000. There was an
ini* (hn bra nee of $23,000, and also a
Superior court decre by* which a trust
deed for $07,800 was foreclosed on part
of the tract. The total cash price by
the bishop was $260,000. This is the
largest acre transfer within the city
limits during many years, and the deal
was made by Henry A. Knott and James
E. Hildreth of Knott, Chandler & Cos
Several priests now are studying in
Rome for professorships in the new
college. Among those by the bishop
during the first week of last October
dfe Father Dunne of Corpus Clnisti
church, Father Frank Purcell of St.
Anne’s church, and Fathers Hobart,
Doran, and Walsh of the newly ordained
There has not been a school of the
kind in Chicago during thirty-five years.
Bishop Quater, the first bishop of Chi
cago, founded the tirst seminary in
June, 1844 which afterward became the
University of St. Mary’s of the Lake.
In 1862 the school was abandoned for
lack of funds, and the building was
converted into an asylum for orphans.
The James Music company is just now
engaged in rearranging its store on
Scott street, and when completed—
which will be in a few days—it will
be one of the very handsomest stores in
Wausau. Ths store has been divided
with a partition of red birch, and plate
glass. The design is very handsome,
some parts of the red birch being richly
carved. This was gotten out and is
being put in place by Janke it Weise.
This will give the firm a piano parlor
of about 24 feet square in the rear of
the store. New shelving for talking
machines and records have also been
put in, and eight new chandeliers, for
electric lights, which adds much to the
beauty of the store and gives a flood of
light in the evening The entire stol e
is being repainted and decorated. An
unusually line liue of pianos, talking
machines, records, music and novelties
have been purchased for the holiday
trade. ,
