The ShawaDo Advocate says that Shawano will give a democratic major ity of 500. Leaving the dead unhurried upon the battlefield is another modern inno vation in war. It goes in the class with reconcentration. Modern civilization is assuredly humanitarian. The great Roosevelt says that the cow boys are much better fellows and pleasanter companions than the farm ers or agricultural laborers and that the mechanics aud workmen of the great cities are not to be mentioned in the same breath. Senator Spooner has been smoked out at last and forced to speak, but his letter in reply to the Steffens’ article is a disappointment to his cohorts. He touches upon nothing but the charge made upon himself, that it was "boodle” that placed him in the U. S. Senate. If the Japs could only be content now to rest upon their laurels and keep and fortify the territory they have already conquered, giviug Russia the alterna tives of quitting, or attempting to drive the Japs from fortified positions, the outlook for Japan would be something worthwhile. Russia would have a job on hand well nigh impossible. But the Japs will not let well enough alone. It is a rather significant fact that the first Eastern defender of the Stalwart factwn m Wisconsin, against the Stef ens’ article in the October McClure's, is a Philadelphia uewspaper. Philadel phia Is known chiefly for being the most corrupt city in the United States, politically. The “system” which Steffens has been showing up in divers articles in McClure’s, has owned Phila delphia Ixnly ami soul for twenty years. An English wit once told a Scotch man that a Scotchman could uot take a joke if it were tired at him with a gun. Thereupon the Scot, true 10 the logical instinct of his race, proceeded to demonstrate that the tiring of a joke out of a gun was impossible. Now the conditions seem tv* be reversed. Mr. Carnegie recently got off a good one to the effect that Canada would by and by annex the United States the same as Scotland annexed England; where upon a great Aniericau daily published in Milwaukee proceeds to argue in its leading editorial, that this cannot La* done. ♦— ~ - A few years ago the papers contained an account of the settlement of a bitter feud between two professional men of the South. Being strong and resolute men, skilled in the use of the bowie knife, they agreed to shut them,elves, stripped to the waist, in a dark room and fight to a finish. After a long con test, one of them broke from the room and ran crazed down the street, stab biug right and left. He was finally cornered in a store, knocked down and manacled. A similar settlement will now be undertaken by our republican brethren, the supreme court having ad journed without deciding their contest. A sanguinary tight in the dark will be gin forthwith. Lincoln Steffen having flashed his dagger and Senator Spooner his toothpick. Aw ward carving and five blood lettirv* will follow, and the welkin will rint with outcry. Be hold how good and how pleasant it is for brethreu to dwell together in unity. Henry C. Payne, one of the best known men of our state, is dving in Washington. Word comes through the daily oapers that there is no hope for him Mr. Payne has been very sick for a week or more. Two Rivers Chronicle, Dem.: Asa political document the letter of Judge Parker is much stronger, more dignified and statesman like than that of Roose velt. On the subject of tariff - reduction, trust regulation, pensions and imperi alism'"he is admirably democratic and his letter will set Democratic hearts to pulsating all over the country. His views on all national and international subjects are practical, considerate, progressive and just. In short his letter shows that he is an American who will be respected abroad and be confided in and honored at home. The Supreme Court of the. state of Wisconsin, adjourned on Friday not to meet again until the 18th day of October. No decision was reached iu the repub lican factional case, and as it is, when the court again meets, there will be only twenty days before the election. Thisnuans that the republican party in the state is in a dilemma from which it is no easy task to extricate it self. The secretary of state, to keep within the boundsof the law, must send out tickets and information to voters by the 19th of October. If a decision is not reached by that time the half breeds will occupy the regular column on the ticket: To convince anyone that the republi can light in Wisconsin enters into national politics, it is only necessary to publish the comments made by the Milwaukee Free Press on the coming of Senator Foraker, of Ohio, who spoke in Milwaukee on Thursday evening viz: “It is a piece of impertinence, who ever is responsible for it, and it will not do any good. The state central committee that was appointed by the convention that nominated Gov. LaFollette was not advised with, and did not know that the Ohio man is coming. His coming is an affront to the regular organization, and was of course intended to be. A national committee that has no better judgment should confine itself to reporting its final judgments on contested seats iu national conventions. That is just about coarse enough work for it.” Senator George Frisbie Hoar, of Massachusetts, ant! one of the greatest meu that our nation has produced, died on Friday, Sept. 30th, in his 79th year. Since 1850 he had been a prominent figure of our nation, anti was a member of the Forty-first, Forty second, Forty third, and Forty-fourth congresses and declined a re-nomination for the Forty fifth. He succeeded Geo. S. Boutwell in the United States Senate, March 5, 1877, and remained there up to the time of his death. While he was a republican he did not follow that party in its un-American policy of imperial ism, or in its policy of trust-building but he fought with the democratic party on these questions. “Senator Hoar was a worthy succes sor to Webster, Sumner and the other great men who have represented Massa chusetts in the United States senate,” said Senator Joseph B. Foraker, while in Milwaukee. “He was a typical representative of all that is best and highest in American citizenship and civilization. "He not only had the respect of all his colleagues, but he was beloved by Democrats as well as Republicans. The senate will feel his loss most keenly.” The republicans are resorting to the old scare crows which have done them good service in former political strifes but which are now known to be the flimsiest kinds of fraud and deception. Judge Parker-said in his letter of accep tance that the Filippinos should be giv en self government when they are rea sonably prepared for it. Now there comes a hypocritical sniffle from those who occupy high places in the republi can party and even from the president himself. They say in effect, that the expression of such sentiments will re sult in driving the Filippinos to rebellion and that it is doing so. O, ye hypocrites! The very idea of trying to suppress any thing that will give the subjects of the United States freedom and self govern ment. The republican party should be defeated on that question alone. An other miserable species of intimidation that is being practiced by some of the republicans is that of trying to frighten the lahoriug men into voting the repub lican ticket. Up in Duluth the other day a lumberman made the statement that if Parker was elected he would im mediately sell all his lumber at 50 cents less per thousand. If this continues they will keep on getting lower iu the scale and soon get to where the heads of some institutions wli say that, if Park er is elected their factories will dose down. The men who do these things are not fit to live in a free country. In timidation should have no place in this f ree country of ours. Judge Parker Will Win. In a speech made before Tammany Hall in New York recently. Represen tative Wm. Sulzer said in part: "Judge Parker will win. In my opinion he will easily carry the state of New York. Everywhere Igo I find public sentiment in favor of the brilliant New York jurist. He is popular with all classes of people, and 1 have no doubt he will be the next president. The democrats are united and enthusiastic this year. They are alive to the task before them to wrest control of the country from the republicans, and are working with vim. confidence and de termination for sweeping democratic victory. “The Empire state is safe for demo cracy. ami we will carry all other doubt ful states. The people know Judge Parker is an honest, an upright, an able and fearless man, a great jurist—and a democrat through and through. The more \ae people know about Judge Parker the more they like him. He is growiug stronger with ti e voters evi ry day.” Gecu W. Peck, condidate for Governor, of Wis consin on the democratic ticket, will he at the opera house on Friday evening. LaFoJlettism and Reform. The political slogan in Wisconsin for several years has been "reform.” La- Follette has been the great high priest of this fetich ar.d Hoard, Hall, Stephen son, et. nl. have been its prophets. The corrupt practice act and the anti-pass law are its partial embodiment, while tax reform and primary election laws are the remnant hysteria. The refer endum, once so loudly demanded, has long lain in a state of coma. Agitation in behalf of these measures has consisted largely in impeachment of the integrity of legislative, executive and judicial officers anti a general dis crediting of both public and private morals. The corruption or corruptibil ity of the whole electorate has been constantly and vehemently affirmed. Honesty and sincerity of character or purpose have been denied to all but the devotees of this cult, and all who have questioned the utility or practicability of their measures have been denounced as venal or incompetent to judge. It is time to impure what is the net result of this agitation and legislation. Uncle Ike’s ce temptuoiis disregard for the corrupt prt: ice act consigned it to "innocuous desuetude.” The ac ceptance and use of passes hv the in cumbents of the attorney general’s office and by the sanctimonious and sniveling Hoard, relegated that cele brated enactment to the rubbish heap. The governor’s own shiftiness, treach ery and double dealing have thus ‘ar made impossible any practicable tax reform, notwithstanding two consent tive legislatures have been under bis control. He has himself denounced one of his own tax laws and the rail way corporation? are contesting anoth er. An ironclad primary election law has run the gauntlet of the legislature but awaits ratification by the people at the approaching election to make it effective. This seems a few kernels of grain for the sifting of so much chaff. It sug gests a possibillly that the governor is more eager for “issues” titan for “re form.” His present "issue” is control of the railroads. If it suffices to land him again in the gubernatorial office will he accomplish more than he has done before, or will be drop it for another “issue” that will land him in the U. S. Senate ? V\ e shall see. In the meantime it is well to beware the Greeks bearing gifts, lest we bring in a wooden horse to rob us of our liberties. We can not consider too carefully the proposed primary election law When we recall the horde of game wardens, oil inspectors, treasury agents, etc., whom the governor has employed to pack caucuses and control conven tions, not to mention the corralling of democrats for the ante purpose, we may be pardoned for doubting the sin cerity and impartiality of the govern or’s scheme. The caucus packer and convention manipulator is not the man to dictate the methods of political ac tion for honest and intelligent men. His tax reform has meant the doubling of taxes and the expenditure of the money without any corresponding ad vantage to the state. His electoral re forms may be even more harmful. The employment of thugs and sluggers to control a convention is a just criterion for judging this particular reform. The democrat who is duped by it is a pecul iarly gullible gudgeon. Vote it down anti, if you think y..u see merit in the principle, try a moderate measure on a limited scale. It is Bitter. The bitter fight in w.e republican ranks, grows more intense every day. There can only be one result, either one or the other factions must be wiped out. Just note, the bitter way in which sena tor Quarles talks about La Follette. How ean any republican vore for him after reading this tirade by the senator viz: “The man,” said hr, "is ambitious. He seeks to hold the strings of power in his own hands and to dictate who s .all be candidate for the Legislature and who ghall be the members of Con gress and who shall be United States senator. "He is the Caesar of his faction. In his time and never before has the shadow of the executive mansion thrown itself over the legislative halls and every man who is bold enough to differ from him is regarded as the enemy of the people and is held up to the derision of the public. "He conducts himself as if he and he alone had discovered the principles that he is parading as his own. Why, these principles have been the watchword of the Republican party for the last fifty years, Mr. La Follette has no patent, on them. "Nexer before has a governor of Wis consin so disgraced the executive office as it is now disgraced by the incumbent who is riding through the state dictat ing to caucuses and conventions who shall he the candidates and who shall be rejected. Nothing does he leave to the independence of the voter. “It is thus that representative govern ment in *hls state is threatened. The men who differ from the governor are black listed and their names are read with opprobrious criticism. Eastern pa pers are dictating to the people of Wis consin aud their ignorance of the situa tion is deplorable There was as much difference between Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde as there is between the La Fol lette of the eastern papers aud the La Follette who tours the state in his ’red devil’ and by every act seeks to subvert the independence of the voter. "One, Liucolu Steffens has defamed the fair fame of this state. Coming from the corruputio/i of other places with the stench of corruption iu his nostrils, he has discovered a rotten con dition iu Wisconsin and blames it to the thiugs that he calls a system. Now, I want to say that there never was in the Republican party a machine until Gov. La Follette built his adjustable, back-acting machine to control the pol itics of this state..’ "Oh, that mine adversary had writ ten a book,” is a complaint that the adversaries -f President Rxseveit can not make. He has written many of tnem aud mighty interesting reading are they these days.

Think of the cowboy presi dent belittling the author of the Declaration of Independence and the father of the constitution, either one of whom, in manhood and intelligence, would equal a cow-pen full of Roosevelts. His letter of acceptance is a further ex hibition of his stupendous egotism aud impudence. It. impeaches the intelli gence and capability of one-half of the citizens of the laud. It is an insult that ought never to have been given. He should have remembered that the civilities current among ranchmen may be very unbecoming to the president. Every farmer and laboring mat, should be furnished with authentic copies of his deliberately expressed contempt of them. Peck Writes Letter to Democrats. Prominent democrats are in receipt of personal letters from George W. Peek, of Milwaukee, the democratic nominee for governor, urging them not to cast their ballots for the republicans, but stick to the democratic ticket and vote it straight. The letter reads in part: "Late years many of our democrats have good naturedly helped our politi cal enemy to win elections. They are like the farmers who are short of help in the busy season ‘changing works.’ Democrats have helped republican political farmers to sew anti reap, and now it is no more than right for them to come back to the democratic farm and bring with them some of the re publicans they have helped and ask them to help us iu our ‘husking’ and our threshing.’ “One object of my accepting the nomi nation for governor was to get our par ty together again, and have all factions of it ready to light shoulder to shoulder. When a co nmanding general is having the fight of his life, and his enemy seems almost too strong for him, he calls the reserves to rally to the colors and every loyal man should respond. As the tem porary commander of the democratic army, 1 ask you all to re-enlist at once for the battle that is soon to take place, and when the battle is over, and the political enemy is routed on the retreat, trying to getaway from the democratic bayonets, and we have taken possession of the eapitol now held by virtue of democratic votes which were borrowed from us, and the democratic banner is unfurled over tin? fortress at Madison, every democrat who has strayed away in years past will !>e proud that he has got home from his furlough in time to help win the greatest of all battles.” Tariff Tribute. In the campaign text book issued by the Democratic national committee quotations are made from the price lists of a large number of American manufacturers showing the difference iu the prices charged for export and the prices charged in the home market It is shown that the total wholesale value of manufactured goods sold at home amounts to ffi.OHO,OOO,OOO, and that the difference Un ween the prices j charged in the borne market and those j charged for the same goods when sold ! to foreigners amounts to $1,200,000,000 : In other words, the tariff privileges the j American trusts, as the larger part of onr manufactures has passed under! control of the great industrial corpora- \ tions, to take out of the pockets of the 1 American people $1,*0.000.000 a year ! in greater profits than the same goods would be sold for in foreign markets j or that they would be sold in the | American markets were it not for the j elimination of foreign competition. This enormous sum, which places a heavier burden upo: the American people than was placed upon them by j the civil war, is as much an extortion ! as if congress had privileged the tariff beneficiaries to erect toh gates upon j the public highways and exact from the public $1,200,000,000 annually. The immensity of the tribute may be bet ter understood when it is realized that * With Many Special Not-to-be-Repeated Bargains. Competition Impossible on These Men’s Suits and Overcoats.
