Wherever possible, fields were plowed over and green trees were fallen as a firebreak and all that saved several farm houses from destruction was the dying of the wind which had been fanning the blaze. The fire’s origin is traced directly to a Polander living in that section who set fire to brush piles on his farm and then went away and allowed the fire to spread. We learn that the farmers who suffered most from his careless ness are combining for the purpose of prosecuting him, and that in due time a complaint will be filed. If every farmer in the county, who has suffered such losses from the wanton careless ness of others, would make like prose cutions, it would have a good healthy effect. Give them a little of the crim inal law, which provides a fine of SIOO for such offenses, besides payment of damages to the ones suffering losses. The people living in and around Mosinee, Moon and that section were seriously threatened last week. Long stretches of furrows were plowed up and a patrol of men was kept at work night and day while the danger threat ened. Lumber companies owning standing timber in that section lost heavily. There are several large groves of Norway pine and hemlock burned over and to save the timber from becoming worm-eaten it will be necessary to log it this coming winter. On Thursday a rain -shower visited that section south of the city and the “wetness” fell so heavily that mud puddles formed on the road. For a time fires which had been burning around Kelly were checked, but on the following day they broke out anew. From a man who has lately traveled over quite a section of the eastern part of the county we learn that the forest fires have had the effect of killing large numbers of fish in different streams. This man said that last week he crossed a trout stream and found large numbers of dead trout along the banks. It is thought that the light raiu of Thursday falling on the ashes of burned logs formed a lye which oozed into the streams and had the effect of killing the fish. The residents of the village of Fen wood had a bad scare last Saturday. For a week or more tires in the sur rounding country had been slowly con suming property and working their way toward the village. Fanned by the heavy oreeze of Saturday the fires broke forth in great fury, and as the village was directly in the path of dan ger, great apprehension was felt. The Fenwood Lumber Co.’s mill and stock of lumber, it was feared, could not be saved and if the lumber piles caught tire it was a certainty the village would be licked up. C. S. Curtis of that com pany made application to Mayor J. I. Lamont for the use of the city’s tire en gine, but owing to the danger of a fire breaking out here the request was re fused. A special train was made up, Mr. Curtis closed down his factories and all who wanted to tight tire went over on the special; a few more went over on the noon train. The village has no tire protection of any kind ex cept a small chemical engine which is absolutely worthless in a tire of any size. The work of stopping the progress of the flames, therefore, was not an easy matter aud about all the men could do was to start backfires on the outskirts of the village. In this work they had to be extremely careful, on account of the high wind. Just when the crucial time had come, a raiu shower came on which continued throughout the night, and this aloue is, perhaps, all that saved the village from destruction. On the same day a fire east of I wprz: Dr - Willot j lal * Cossitt, | |yjjj OCULIST gMp Office 310 Third St.. $ over Albers' I'riu i Store. > Practice limited to diseases of l < the Eye, Ear, Nc_e and Throat. ; BLASSES PRESCRIBED Kodol will, iu a very short time, en able the stomach to do the work it should do, and the work it should do is to digest all the food yon eat.

Editor Pilot: I am pleased to comply with your re quest for an opinion in regard to the proposed provision for the guarantee of bank. deposits My experience in bank ing leads me to think that banks, like other business, depend for success upon the good will, the confidence and the prosperity of the people. And any measure which has a tendency to im prove or create these favorable condi tions should have their support. It is claimed that our present banking system is unsatisfactory. And past experience has demonstrated that the bankers of the country are unable to agree upon a substitute. The question of making provision for guaranteeing the money of the depositors in banks, so ably ad vocated by Mr. Bryan, is assuming a position as the leading issue in the pending campaign, and should be decided upon its merits. It is apparent from the present situa tion, that the near future will bring us either the guarantee of bank deposits, or the postal savings bank. There is no question that the guarantee of bank deposits is much to be preferred, from a banker’s or business man’s stand point. It gives the depositor the secur ity he needs and leaves the banking business in the hands of the banks. Whether postal savings deposits are re deposited in commercial banks upon security exacted by the government, making such deposits a preferred claim, and tying up millions of the best secur ities, or whether re-deposited in favorite banks or transmitted to a central bank it involves the inauguration of a European system, detrimental to the banking business. Postal savings banks are no aid to the borrower, take the money out of business and give no employment to labor. Besides doing nothing for the regular bank depositor, it leaves-the country, as now, subject to periodical money panics. I have been much interested in the criticisms of the guarantee propositions. No sane man should expect the inau guration of a guarantee system without proper regulation. And it is indeed a poor opinion of our law-making power Knowlton was driven in the direction of the Johnson -Creek Lumber Co.’s plant. Chas. Guenther collected a crew of men which which flames all day, until the rain came and put the plant out of danger. A fire started north of the city, pre sumably from the spark of a locomotives and was driven east along rthe foot of Marshall hill. The 'fire appeared to rage worst along the Merrill -vroad and for a time it was impossible for anyone io get through. Jos. Labarge, dray man, hauled some goods to Brokaw and on returning was held up by the flames for several hours aud then got through by taking a hazardous* risk. While he was waiting on the hill, Wm. Beerbaum, the rural mail carrier on that route, came along. He had a light tig and Mr. Laßarge assisted him across fields and fences until he reached the rail road track when he followed the right of-way into the city. There was another hot fire southeast of Schofield Saturday which was fought all day by farmers and Schofield vil lagers. That same day a fire crept up on the west side of Rib mountain nearly to its crest. Had not the rain came when it, there is no telliug the extent of the danger this city would have been in. There would at least have been a spectacular scene on the mountain by night, plainly visible to a large stretch of territory. Asa sample of the destruction of growing timber, one may ride north of the city as far as the Brokaw road and see plenty of evidence. The country on either side of the road, for stretches of miles, is blackened, with here and there a stump or pile of logs still smok iug. Nearly every tree in that area is dead or will die. A vyind storm next season will complete the work of des truction, for the fire has eaten around the roots of trees, so that very little is left to hold them up. As most of the timber killed is hardwood, the wood market this coming winter ought to be well stocked. All danger for the bal ance of the season is now no doubt past. The soaking rain of Saturday and Sunday came at a time when very badly needed, and extinguished most fires. Equinoxial storms may be looked for at this period. Still the rain men tioned will not be of much benefit to the farmers who wish to do fall plough ing—more is needed to sofien up the ground. Previous to this rain the ground was baked as hard as a Hotten tot’s pate, aud it will vequire a great deal more to soak it up. Every creek in the country was dried up and the raiu of Saturday night made no ceptible change with them. The river is the lowest it has been for years. The dry season, with its heavy tire losses, has not been very favorable for the farmer and some crops have been al most a failure. It looks as if veget ables will be high this coming winter and wood cheap. The Morteuson \ Stone Lumber Cos. lost about 2.000 cords of tau bark near Ilogarty last week. A crowd of men from Stevens Point came up to Mosinee Friday, to tight tire in a tract of timber belonging to the John Week Lumber company near that town. UND VEIN OF IRON ORE. The quiet little village of Spencer is in a frenzy of excitement over the dis covery of a vein of iiou ore near there. Although the era of the deposit is only a foot square on the surface, it widens deeper in the ground. The deposit has been found at the depth of 100 feet. Specimens have been examined by the slate geology department, which pro nounces the ore of a fine quality. — Stevens Point Journal. Wa usa u Pilot. to assume that congress, with the advice of the bankers of the country, woulcT not provide against all the criticisms, when the new state of Oklahoma has apparently met them all by a stringent regulation and fixing a maximum rate of interest on deposits. It also seems an unnatural stretch of imagination to assume, that some bank officials would willfully destroy, not only the invest ments of the stockholders of the bank, subject them to additional assessment and themselves to punishment, for the purpose of having the depositors paid from the guarantee fund. It can safely be assumed, that after the passage of a guarantee law, bank officials will be as honest, and those who are disposed to take chances will be as legally honest as they now are. And when regulation and supervision are made more strict and enforced, all objections will have been met. Even if it adds to the expenses oi banking, what stockholder will not feel relieved from some of the obligations and risks he now assumes. It is claimed that the guarantee of bank deposits only benefits the deposi tor. This might be important if true. But who is benefited when the depositor feels safe at all times and does not draw his money from the bank when the country is in a panicy condition? Is it not a relief to the banker, the stock holder, the business man and the bor rower? Who is not benefited when the deposi tor feels safe, money panics and periods of depression cease? Who will not be benefited, when a large share of the money, hoarded from lack of confidence, is placed on deposit and in circulation. If we figure the increase of bank deposits by reason of the passage of a law by congress, guaranteeing the depositors, on the percentage of in crease of deposits in Oklahoma, the in crease of money in circulation in the country would exceed six hundred mil lion dollars. Would that not restore prosperity ? Respectfully, John Rxngle. DATES FIXED. The Y. M. C. A. committee on enter tainment course has finally selected dates for its next winter’s course. On Wednesday evening, Oct. 14, the Oratorio Artists, consisting of two men and three ladies will appear in the M. E. church in musical numbers. The mittee was unable to secure the opera house for that evening. All the follow ing dates will be for the opera house. Monday evening, Nov. 16, the Dun bar Cos., male quartette and bell ringers. Elias Day, whom nearly everyone in Wausau will remember from a good record he left here ten or more years ago, will appear Tuesday evening, Jan. 5. He is a character sketch artist and will be assisted by his wife, Oranne Truitt Day, in character readings. Gov. J. Frank Hanley, of Indiana, will lecture on the evening of Monday, Jan. 25. His subject will probably be “The Patriotism of Peace.” The concluding number will be given on the evening of Wednesday, March 31, when Geo. R. Wendling will deliver a lecture. His topic will probably be “Modern Doubt.” The course this year is an exceeding ly strong one—stronger than has been selected in years. Elias Day and the Dunbar combina tion need no advertising to till tho-opera house when they come. Their merits are too well known. The others are among the highest class entertainers sent out by the bureaus from which they were engaged. FIRE INSURANCE.

Items of news published in Wausau, April Bth, 1858: ARRIVAL OF THE NEW STEAMBOAT “WAUSAU.” This Thursday morning, April 8,1858, the cloud of smoke, and the whistle of a steam engine down the l iver, told the quiet citizens of our “village in the wilderness,” that new steamer “Wau sau,” built last season by Messrs. Rood Spooner, to run between W'ausau and Fail City, was approaching. Tb ' ex citement was intense, and although the weather was cold and raining, a large portion of our citizens hastened to the landing (at the foot of Fourth street) to welcome the first arrival of this much expected visitor. Capt. Rood informed us that they left Mosinee Wednesday afternoon, with about twenty tons of freight, aDd tied up at the Eau Claire landing about sunset (three miles below Wausau), not deeming it prudent to come further last night, as the channel was not as yet decided upon. The ex pectations of the builders are more than realized in its capacities, aud although in size it may not compare favorably with the steamers that plow the waters of the Hudson, the Mississippi and our great lakes, yet it is of sufficient dimen. sions to supply the wants of our country at this time and will prove a source of great convenience aud accommodation to our business men. We can now say good-bye to bad roads such as hereto fore in our pine woods have been a terror to stage passaugers and team sters, and in comfortable quarters aboard this little steamer, hereafter move up and down this beautiful river, reflecting that we are impelled by the same power that through the genius and instrumentality of Fulton and other explorers in the lield of mechan ical science, has bridged the ocean i | overcome the force of wind, tide and ! current, and leaping off the watery ele ment has traversed states and nations' almost annihilating distance and in creasing in an inestimable ratio the blessing any comforts of our race. Yesterday, when the wondering and admiring cuowd was standing upon the river bank beside the new steamer “Wausau,” we heard an old resident* of the pinery (Col.. C. Shuter) remark that he saw a similar crowd, some fifteen years ago, collected around the first wagon ever driven to Big Bull Falls (Wausau ) Surely, times are not now they were then, nor GOES TO MENDOTA. Miss Margaret Thomas visited in the city several days last week, following her return from her trip through Europe during the summer with C. C. Parlin's party of the Chatauqua Tours Cos. Miss Thomas departed on Friday for Appleton for a short visit with Mrs. Anna Thomas and will then go to Mendota where she will take a position with the state hospital for insane, located in that city. In connection with her other duties Miss Thomas will open a school in which she will impart ideas for the benefit of the patients so that they may be able to entertain themselves. It will be the first of its kind to be opened in Wisconsin. Miss Thomas was, until last June, a resident of our city for a number of years, and was matron of ovr county asylum for part of the time, under the superintendency of her brother, the late J. B. Thomas. She resigned that position last June to make a tour of southern Europe. Her experience in the work eminently fits her for her new position and her many Wausau friends wish her the fullest measure of success in her new QUEER WEATHER IN 1908, The year 11)08 has been a most re markable one up to the present as re gards the weather. The 1908 half of last winter was an exceedingly mild one with a very light snow fall. The spring was like a blushing, bashful school girl in that it was backward about coming forward, a'nd’the cool weather extended well up to the sum mer period. The summer was very hot and long and few can remember of another season when there were no frosts in September. Again the sum mer was remarkable in the fact that some sections of this county ex perienced a killing frost in the middle of August, and “once more again” in that we suffered the longest drought period we had in thirty-seven years, the total rainfall in eleven weeks being less than two inches. Another fact: If there is an “Old Citizen” (under which cognomen some human ostriches hide their heads in print) who remembers of another year when snow fell as early as the 28th of September, the Pilot has not as yet located him. Yes, it actual ly snowed at about one o’clock yester day morning, so we have been told by the n’.ght policemen, so hard that mid night prowlers’ clothes were white with the fleecy flakes. On Saturday i was hot and suit: a nd, on Sunday night it was freezing cold.

During the past week the steamer Northerner has made daily trips be tween Stevens Point and Mosinee. The road from the latter place to our village has lately been quite passable, and well have teamsters improved it. We do not anticipate such a siege of bad roads this spring as we experienced a year ago and “down country” teamsters, bound for the dinery, need have no fear to start with their loads. Wm. Beer, Jr., of this village, one of the best pilots upon the river was drowned at Little Bull Falls last Tues day, just after sunset. He was piloting lumber through the falls, and was en gaged upon his last piece for the day. The raft had entered the “jaws” and was going all right. He had taken the last clip with the oar and had ordered the men away from it, and was holding on and looking around to the steers man, when the oar striking the eddy, through him overboard. The raft passed over him and, when he came up he was about eight rods&o*v,.n. He then swam several rods down the stream towards the breakers. When last seen he had turned upon his back, thrown up his hands, and probably given up all as lost. * * * He was engaged in tak ing out a fleet for Messrs. Shuter, Me- Indoe & Taylor. He had run the f ills safely a thousand times and was con sidered in no way x’eckless or careless. He leaves a wife and three children. At last accounts the body had not been found. F. A.

It was built by Henry Faff and the shelving and inside work by George Werheim. Mr. Hoffman runs a general store, dry goods, grocer ies and hardware. News items of April 8, 1858.—Lake Winnebago is free of ice and steamers are plying between Fond du Lac and Oshkosh.

Last January, as Mr. Bryan recalled in his speech of acceptance, President Roosevelt charged that “the interests” had entered into a conspiracy to dis credit progressive policies and to seize* control of the powers of government. Denouncing the men of wealth w r ho have accumulated vast fortunes “by all forms of iniquity, ranging from the op pression of the wage earners to unfair and unwholesome methods of crushing out competition,” President Roosevelt charged that “certain wealthy men of this stamp, whose conduct should be abhorrent to every man of ordinary de cent conscience, and who commit the hideous wrong of teaching our young men that phenomenal business success must ordinarly be based on dishonesty, have, during these last few months, made it apparent that they have banded together to work a reaction.” Who were the men that Mr. Roosevelt condemned? Obviously they were the Rockefellers, the Harrimans, the Mor gans and the whole tribe of plutocratic plunderers. But if he made exceptions it matters not so far as the present sit uation is concerned. For one and all they are banded together to work the same political end. They are for Taft. Harriman is for Taft. Rockefeller is for Taft. Morgan is for Taft. Rogers is for Taft. Schiff is for Taft. Not a single plutocrat that Roosevelt’s words fitted can be found that is not for Taft. And why do the plutocrats—the shy locks, trust magnates, stock gamblers, and despoilers of frenzied finance make common cause of the Republican party and its candidates? Let Roosevelt answer. “Their endeavor,” he says,“is to over throw and discredit all who honestly ad minister the law, to prevent any ad ditional legislation which would check and restrain them, and to secure, if pos sible, a freedom from all restraint which will permit every unscrupulous wrong doer to do what he wishes unchecked, provided he has enough money.” They want to be let alone. They want a “safe” administration of government. They want protection. They want a “reasonable profit.” They want Taft. And they want Sherman. They want Uncle Joe Cannon They want a “stand pat” congress. They want to let well enough alone. They do hot want to be disturbed. They do not want new laws enacted to restrain them or old laws enforced. They do not want lower tariffs. They do not want heavy tines or jail sentences. They do not want Bryan. And they do not want Kern. They do not want a Democratic con gress. They do not want a change. For they have got what they want and they are satisfied.—Milwaukee News.
