Published weekly andentered at the Post Office at Wausau as second class matter. President Roosevelt was silenced completely by Wm. J. Bryan’s last letter. The president found, that he was losing votes for his man Taft, so concluded that it was time to stop. E. H. Harriman raised $250,000 in 1904 and gave it into the hands of Cortel you to help carry New York state. And still Foraker has been kicked out of the republican party for doing less than this. B. F. Wilson and family will move into their new home on East hill next Monday. They have been occupying the residence owned by B. H. Conlin, on Sixth street the past summer, while additions were being made on their home. In the 1893-4 so-called democratic “panic” there were seventeen hank failures. In the 1907-8 panic, in Roose velt’s administration, forty-three banks stopped payment. That is one fact that republican orators are kept busy dodging. The Roosevelt program seems to be, Taft for president 1909-1917; Roose velt for president 1917-1921; Long worth for president 1921-1925, at the latter date Roosevelt will probably have sons or sons-in-law who can be forced on to the public. Gov. Davidson’s stand pat speech, made before the republican state plat form convention is losing him many votes. Among the things that he said, was: “If the tariff plank adopted at Chicago is made into law, you and I will be sorry for it within two years.” A Special dispatch from Madison to the Indianapolis News says that “on the highest republican authority in this state, it can be said that the judgment of the republican leaders is that if the election were held tomorrow Bryan would carry Wisconsin/’ That’s the sentiment of nearly everybody. It has just been discovered that the republicans have been illegally frank ing Taft literature through the mails. It is the latest scandal unearthed. The documents were sent out on the frank of Congressman Win. McKinley, of Illinois, who is chairman of the repub lican cangressional campaign coin piittee. Joe Cannon is having a hard time of it since he accused Bryan of being a millionaire. He is now shown to be a foe to labor. He represents the forces which are working to annihilate, the labor movement and the candidate for vice president on the republican ticket, Sherman, *s Cannon’s handy man. Both have opposed every labor bill and every effort to restrict the privileges of the predatory rich. Son-in-law Long worth has made the most stupendous eri-or of the campaign. The democrats have insisted that Pres ident Roosevelt, by his efforts, has placed Taft in nomination, and if Roosevelt is successful in electing his man, will not Taft select Roosevelt fox -1012, and Roosevelt select his son-in-law Longworth, for 1916 and Longworth select, perhaps, Roosevelt’s son as his successor and so on. Longworth in a recent speech, admitted the truth of this “presidential-apostolic succession,” by saying that Roosevelt would be the candidate for presideixey in 1916. The News And Labor. The Buffalo News keeps on insisting that if working men want work and good wages during the next four years they must elect Taft as president. Just how ignorant does the News imagine Buffalo workingmen to be? If a republican president means pros perity and employment, what explana tion has the News for the fact that millions of workingmen have been out of employment in this country for two years? If a republican president means good wages for workingmen, how does it happen that months ago employers of labor reduced wages tea per cent, and more? If prosperity goes to the bow wows under Roosevelt, will conditions be any better under Taft?—Buffalo Repub lic. Mr. Sherman m Vaudeville. Mr. James S. Sherman, candidate for Vice-President, said in an address which he delivered in this city: “I speak for little Willie as well as myselft.” The reference was to Mr. Taft, who is at the head of Mr. Sherman's ticket, and if Mr. Sherman thought that it was amusing he was mistaken.\ Such pleasantries are offensive when they come from the buffoons of the campaign. They are grossly improper in a candidate for Vice-President, who should never sacrifice the dignity that is demanded of him in a painful effort to be “funny.”—Chicago Record-Her ald. Tate guaranteeing of bauk deposits is the greatest question of the campaign. It was the idea of William Jennings Bryan and was embodied in the nation al democratic platform. Therefore Roosevelt and his man, Taft, the bank ing trust in the East, and the republi can party are against it. The voter should not be intimidated, by loud talk from republicans, but work and vote for this proposition, which means to vote the demoenftie ticket. A vote for W. J. Bryan is a vote to guarantee your bank deposits. It is easy to get protection for the corporations, the trusts, the railroads, but when it comes to securing protection for the people, that is different. -STUPENDOUS OFFERINGf- Never in Wausau’s history of merchandising were such immense crowds of people seen in one store before. Fred M. Logan’s big, forced sale, now being conducted by the Kelly Sales System of Minneapolis, reminds us of a circus striking town. On Thursday, October Ist, the opening day, the crowds tak ing advantage of this sale was something long to be remembered. The Kelly Sales System had employed 100 cleiks for this gigantic event; but yet there were nc. enough sales people to wait on all the customers, and at various times throughout the day, the crowds became so great that it was neces sary to lock the doors at times. It simply goes to demonstrate that the public appreciate good bargains and know where they are getting big values for their money. Wausau lias had different sales in the past, but never one sucli as Mr. Logan is now giving to the public, as the dry goods, clothing, fur nishings, groceries and shoes are really being handed out to the public at less than they cost Mr. Logan. The quality of his stock is well known to all and when the store opened .Thursday, the first day of the forced sale of merchandise, the store was crowded from earlv moraine till late at with eager customers, and all the other stores in town secured trade just from the overflow of customers from Mr. Logan's store; the people carried away goods by the wagon load, and it is plain to be seen that Fred M. Logan is going to outfit every farmer and his family, who reside in the county, with a full supply of winter merchandise from head to foot.

The republicans take the cue from their Chief. They, too, are in rage. Which ever way they turn defeat stares them in the eye. The democrats will carry New York by a hundred thousand ma J jority. There is little legs than republi can chance in Ohio. In Indiana the elephant is hopelessly down of Asiatic cholera. Already democracy, begin ning with Illinois, sweeps the west like a prairie tire. How could it be other wise in the face of what the president is doing ? Poor Taft! Poor Taft! “Injins on the upper road, And death upon the lower.’’ —Louisville Courier-Journal. QUEER DRINKING CUP. Johu Fehl & Sons have on display in their show window the hide of an eel which was caught uear Short Portage. It is nearly three feet in length—an extraordinary size for a fresh water fish of this species. The firm also has some other interesting things to look at in the same window. One of these is a section of a yellow birch tree, about eight inches in diameter, which was cut out of the tree by a beaver. The cutting looks as if done with a dull axe and part of it is through a knot. It was found south of Stevens Point. There are several 1 lb. shells from a rapid fire gun on one of our battleships, together with samples of the powder used in them. The shell itself is about six inches in length and in shape resembles an ordi nary riffe shell. The projectile head is of solid steel, sharply pointed and has a recess in its base. In this recess is a highly explosive substance which ex plodes and shatters the projectile when the latter strikes any hard .substance. There is also a drinking cup made from the base of a three inch shell. A Lee- Metford cartridge from the small arm of the navy forms the handle. A num er of wolf, deer and muskellonge. heads, buffalo horns and hoofs, com pletes the exhibit. LINCOLN SCHOOL NOTES. We are glad that Miss Wadleigh is with us again. Albert Stanke has returned to school after an absence of a week, on account of illness. Misses Allan and Roerner have en joyed their visiting days. We lope Miss McGuine won’t stop her wo"k at the Lincoln until all have been served. Alma Sonmcrfeldt has returned to her work after an attack of tonsilitis. Olga Carlson is buffering from an in jured knee and is not able to be in school Last Finlay afternoon, Mr. Johnson gave one his good talks to the pupils of rooms A, B and C. He wished to make plain to them certain rules and customs of the school; but at the same time he held before them the thought that they could afford to give nothing but their best effort in all their work. Monday afternoon the pupils of room C enjoyed a delightful, as well as an instructive, excursion. Miss Derby, with her class of forty-five, visited the granite works, where each was able to obtain a specimen for special study. Their walk on such a pleasant autumn afternoon also gave them an opportun ity to study nature and to gather ma terial for their work in drawing. FOOT BALL. The Merrill high school foot ball team will play the local team next Saturday on the high school campus. The game will be cal led at 3:30 There has always been much feeling in athletics between the two teams and a good game is as sured. Wausau is anxious to w’oe out last year's defeat at Merrill. The following marriage licenses were issued during the week by the county clerk: Robt. Heidemann. Pine River, to Ottilie Kuiess, town of Maine. Ray Kyle to Agatha Zoepping, both of the town of I rankfort. Peter Vanish, town of Mosinee, to Anna Kennedy, town of Emmet. Aug. Loetffer to Anna Jaeschke, both of Wausau. Herman Leistikow to Ida Jaenke, both of town of Benin. Willie Christian to Martha Voelker, both of town of Maine. Chas. Friswold, Hackley. Vilas Cos., to Emma Sexton, town of Hewitt. THE KELLY SALES SYSTEM is making a terrible sacrifice on Mr. Logan’s stock, selling most of his mer chandise below wholesale cost, but on account of his being compelled to raise a large amount of money by November Ist, and his creditors refusing to wait any longer for this amount, he simply has to forget what this high grade stock cost him and sacrifice all his profits to the public. The saving to the public is manifest, as never before at this time of the year—right at the very beginning of the season—has there been such a tremendous sac rifice on anew, up-to-date, $50,000 stock. THIS ENTIRE STOCK is in the hands of the T. K. Kelly Sales System lor immediate disposal, and it will certainly pay you to come fifty miles to attend this great sale, as it presents an oppor tunity lor wise buyers to save many dollars. A word to the wise is sufficient, as this opportunity you may never have again. i ■ - Startling Price Reductions Our Finest Grades all Included in this Stupendous Offering Ladies’ and Misses’ Cloth Jackets and Coats, made in Kerseys, Beavers and Meltons, in the latest styles and tailored to perfection, consisting of short form fitting, medium and the extra full length box effect, $7.50 values, $2.97 ; sl2 values $4.97. sls, $lB and S2O Garments at less than cost of material and linings.

A little knot # of people assembled in the office of A. A Bock was very much sur prised at the agility of Mr. Fleming and at the fact that be still retains ail his facuities. He came here in 1843 and is now past 87 years of age. Though Mr. Fleming, like other pioneers, worked hard and went through much exposure and bard knocks when young, still he is quite a yonng man today, physically speaking. One of his business tran sactions of yesterday was the signing of a document. This he did without the aid of spectacles and with the flourish of one who is in daily practice.
