The several counties of the district are cn titled to representation as follows: Ashland 4 Oneida 2 Floreuce 1 Price 2 Forest I Shawano 4 Iron 2 Taylor 3 Langlade 3 Vilas 2 Lincoln 4 Wood 5 Marathon 9 By order of the Democratic Congressional Committee. O. L. Rinci.e. Chairman. A. G. Pankow, Secretary. A citizen of Berlin, Germany, has written to President Roosevelt asking him to stop the war between Russia and Japan. Will he do it? “Aye! There’s the rub.” Will Teddy stop that war ? There is not so much difference be tween Deneen of Illinois and Folk of Missouri. One is a Republican anti the other is a Democrat; but they are botli honest men, which is much more than being either a Democrat or Republican. It means more to the people of those two states.—Milwaukee Free Press. Good healthy doctrine that. When the majority of our people agree with the Free Press, that it is better to be honest than to be a loyal partisan, there will be a brighter prospect ahead for this nation. The Kempf Case. The republican state treasurer was found to he short #14,400 of the cash paid to him for sale of state lands. He had received that amount over and above what be had accounted for. Be ing a candidate for re-election he was informed by (iov. LaFollette that he must make good the deficiency and get oft" the ticket. He has complied with b *h these demands, though, not being a wealthy man he had to skirmish around pretty lively for a few’ days to raise the cash. Now he claims that the trouble was caused by a mistake in bookkeeping. But $3,400 is rather a large sum for Mr. Kempf to have ex pended over and above what belonged to him without noticing it. He promised to make an explanation for the public, but ho did not make any. Kempf, although nominated by the regular convention of his party, was at heart a sympathizer with the stalwart faction. When any of the lights of that faction visited Madison they made his office in the Capitol their head quarters. He also employed a lot of stalwart clerks, who acted as spies upon the republiean state officers, so that the Lahollette plans were usually given to the stalwart newspapers very strangely and unexpectedly. lienee it is uot wonderful that the governor was ready to oust him the first got*! opportunity. The stalwart papers will not, of course, come out openly and defend Kempf. and they are at their wits end to make some use of the trouble that will operate to the injury of the gover nor. But without concerted action, — without any agreement before hand as to the best method of handling the matter they have made a funny jumble of it. Some of them say Kempf was singled out for punishment, because of his stalwart sympathies although not more guilty than three or four other state officers. Others say that he FOR SALE OR RENT Alt hen’s West Side Store. After Sept. Isth, 1904, u he above store will be for sale or rent, con sisting of store, granarj, living rooms and barn. This is one of the best locations in the city. For further particulars enquire at C. Althen's east side store. travelled over the state electioneering for LaFollette before the state conveu tion, and that his shortage was prob ably due to some error in bookkeep ing, apparently striving by such means to enlist Mr. Kempf aud his friends to support the stalwart state ticket. None of them seem to be willing to give the governor credit for acting as Roosevelt did in the matter of the post office frauds, although after all, that would seem to an outsider to be the most reasonable inference. R oose vel t ’ sNe wspaper Frt en ds, If you want to and out. all about the uncomplimentary things that the New York World, and other Eastern news papers say about Roosevelt, read the Milwaukee Sentinel. Those Eastern newspapers do not circulate in Wis consin, and it is a valuable service the Sentinel gives readers in reproducing for them these Eastern editorials un complimentary to the republican can didate. That however is not the object of the Sentinel. Its purpose is to uot only inform its readers that unkind criti cizms are made upon candidate Roose velt by Eastern newspapers but further to attempt to show that those criticisms are unsound. To a man up a tree it would seem that if republican news papers in the West did not spread among their readers these erroneous impressious of Teddy their readers would not know what was being said of him by his eastern neighbors who know him best, and the further effort to confute the slander, after giving it wings, would not tie necessary. “Liars Will Fi£ure.” “Figures won’t lie.” Verv true. Fig ures won’t do anything if they are left alone. It is also true that “Liars will figure.” And when liars figure they can and do make ligures lie. Uarroll 1). Wright’s half truths hate become no torious examples of this. And a half truth is one form of lie. Carroll D. Wright is the Republican appointee at the head of the labor bureau, Washing ton, I). (’. And we never hear of him except just before some important po litical campaign. At those periods he always comes out with a report de signed to l>e used as a campaign docu ment and which shows bv ligures,— that is by such part of the figures as he sees tit to publish,—that wages constant ly increase faster than the prices of commodities. Of course it is very plain, from Wright’s figures, that as the tiling is bound to contiuue so long as his par ty is in power, there is nothing for the trusts to do except to tight against, the republican party to get ready for bank ruptcy. For if wages constantly in crease faster than the price of labor's products, the time must inevitably come when the poor trusts will have to pay out more for labor than they can sell their goods for. But is it not a wonder the trusts did not tiud out about this? The trusts have been help ing the republican party all the time and according to Wright’s figures that party has l>een their worst enemy.

PRESS NOTICE, The Progressive Entertainers, who are lajoked to play in the tirand opera house Tuesday, Aug 9, present creden tials from people whose judgment must be respected, and from all indications they are giving a performance that is well worthy of a good patronage. One of their principal features is the presen tation of the entire story of Robinson Crusoe, in moving pictures, accom panied with scenic effects which make the performance appear marvelously realistic. We are all well familiar with the lines of this thrilling story, and its memories are connected with our earli est and dearest impressions, and this is presumably the reason why this com pany has received so many compliments from their reprodaction, on this score, from both young and grown. The de tails are said to be brought out remark ably well. Illustrated songs, and mov ing scenes from the Russo-Japanese war will swell the program, while the more instructive part will consist in a i brief talk, by Mr. W. R Stokes, of St. Paul, on the pre historic ages of this earth, long before the appearance of man the globe. In eonnecton with this there will be scientifically 1 correct illustrations of the peculiar ani mals and plant life belonging to these remote periods of time. The combina tion of instruction and amusement, to this degree, is a rather new departure in the show business, and we feel that it deserves good encouragement. The prices are popular. 15, 25 tod 35 rents. M. E. CHURCH CORNER STONE. The corner stone of the new church in process of erection by the M. E. congregation of Wausau will be laid at 3:00 o’clock next Friday afternoon, Aug. 12th. There will be a number of distinguished visitors pi - e9ent, and the ceremonies quite extensive, interesting and iu keeping with the occasion. The building committee has secured a col lection of newspapers, coins and other articles to commemorate the date which will be placed ia the re ceptacle of the stone at the time the latter is placed iu the wall. Besides Bishop McCabe, who come3 here from Philadelphia, to participate in the ceremonials, there will be many other persons from outside towns present on the occasion. The work of building the foundation walls is nearly completed and in a short time the force of men at work will begin the erection of the superstructure and the contract calls for the church being completed by Jan. Ist. The contractor is an Appleton man, Smith hy name, anti he promises the congregation a splendid church substantial iu construction and modern in every detail. GOOD PERFORMANCES. Gentry Bros’, shows gave two perfor mances at Warren park, Friday last The show carries a large number of well trained ponies and dogs and the manner in which the little animals per formed was something remarkable. They rendered several new and difficult “stunts” the like of which has never before been seen in this city. The tab leaux, termed “Flags of All Nations" in which some two dozen ponies and a herd of elephants participated, was the opening number on the program. From that time on for fully two hours and a half there was something “doing” every minute. The military drill and cake walking and waltzing ponies made de cided hits. The program closed with the acrobat ie and balancing work of a troupe of Japanese. These little people from the far East, six in number, eclipsed any thing in their special line ever presented before a local audience. The company left two of its ponies in this city in its hurry and they were picked up next morning hy City Treas. Henry J tiers. Next day two of the company’s attaches came here from Neillsville and got the ponies, FARM FOR SALE. I will sell my farm, situated in the town of Texas, for a very low price if taken soon. Will sell with stock or without. Call Monday or Tuesday. a9-2vv Dora Edgeiiton. Joe McLean, who at the recent elec tion at Schofield was chosen village marshal, assumed his_duties yesterday noon. He will be on duty from noon each day until midnight and it is possible that later on a deputy will be chosen to serve the balance of the day. The basement has been dug and foun dation walls are being laid for the F. X Linder cigar factory, on Jackson street, opposite the Northern hotel. When the walls are completed the old Althen building, row occupied by H. C Thresher as a fruit store, will be moved onto the property. We were mistaken last week in our statement saying that mail carriers in the city make but two deliveries daily now. All the carriers for the outlying districts make but two deliveries but Carriers Becker ami Vaughan, whose routes are iu the business portion of town, make three deliveries as formerly, and will contiuue to do so. A volunteer lire company has been organized at Mosinee, a lire engine and 1,000 feet of hose purchased, three res ervoirs ting, and a chief and captain appointed. Besides the three reser voirs the company also gets a supply of water from the basement of Ardin I’arnto’s store, which has contained from two to three feet of water ever since it was dug. Iu a test of the steamer Wednesday evening the water in the store basement was only lowered six inches, and Ardin has a supply of water constantly on hand to quench the Haines of a very large tire. “Do It To-Day.” The time-worn junctions, “Never put off ’til tomorrow what you eau do to day,” is now generally presented in this form: “Do it today!” This is the terse advice we want to give you about that hacking cough or demoralizing cold with which you have been struggling for sev eral days, perhaps weeks. Take some reliable remedy for it today—and let that remedy be Dr. Boschee’s German Syrup, which has been iu use for over thirty-five years. A few doses of it will undoubtedly relieve your cough or cold, and its continued use for a few days will cure you completely. No matter how deep seated your cough, even if dread consumption has attacked your lungs, German Syrup >ill surely effect a cure—as it has done before in thou sands of apparently hopeless eases of lung trouble.
