The Pilot has j intention to dis
parage any aspirant (or nomination
on the democratic state ticket. This
is no time (or playing personal favor
ites nor is the opportunity one that
will permit ol the creation oi antag
onisms; what the democratic party
has immediate need ol is harmonious,
disinterested and patriotic ellort lor
the general good, to which end all
personal interests and ambitions must
be subordinated if there is to bp a
democratic victory. The Pilot be
lieves that victory can be won only
with candidates oi highest char
acter and superior ability, and the
names ol General Arthur MacArthur
lor Governor, and the Hon. Burr
W. Jones (or Lieutenan* Governor
are merely suggestion: - t ’he kind
ol men demanded to meet present
political requirements. The Pilot
does not know nor is there even an
intimation that General MacArthur or
Mr. Jones would accept such nomina
tion: th-'y have been suggested as
Ideal Candidates; they would inspire
confidence, their ability to give accept
able service would be conceded; they
would hold the party vole and receive
the additional support necessary to
secure election. General MacArthur
and Mr. Jones may not want office,
but neither ever has lailed to answer
a call ol duty, and every duty imposed
has been well periormed. With such
candidates success will be certain.
Charges Made bj Senator Oore.
The biggest sensation ever sprung
in the U. S. Senate was that by Sena
tor Gore last Saturday. He made the
charge ttiat $25,000 and then $50,000
hail been offered him if he would not
oppose legislation permitting what tie
construed to be a $3,000,000 steal from
the Chickasaw and Choctaw tribes of
Indians. A like offer was made to
Mr. Creager. Both men indignantly
rejected the proposition and in order
to prevent the legislation sought by
certain legal tricksters, (men who
stund very high in the republican
ranks) Senator Gore took it upon him
self to make known the sorbid efforts
at bribery and corruption which had
been made. He furthei charged that
a member of the United States sen
ate lias a corrupt interest in the leg
islation and also a member of the
house has a like interest. Senator
Gore did not mention names but
signified a willingness to do so if the
Senate chose to make an investiga
tion and this cause was decided upon
by that august body. It was stated
that the following persons were in
terested in contracts made with the
Indians which would be affected:
John F. McMurray of South Me-
Alesler. Okla.
Chester I. Long, former United
States senator from Kansas.
John M. Thurston, former United
States senator from Nebraska.
Cecil Lyon, republican national
committeeman from Texas.
Just think of John M. Thurston,
—the man selected by the republican
party to vilify William J. Bryan
when he ran for president—asa briber
and a grafter. Such menj'as the
above, and Lorimer, Aldrich, Cannon
and others, are dragging the g. o. p.
through the mire good and plenty.

There is a feeliug that the Democratic party can win in the coming
State election, not confined only to the democratic rank and file, where i
hope is apt to spring periodically, but this same feeling exists among the I
republican and independent voters, and with a very large number of
these, it is coupled with a dcsife that the democratic state convention
will recognize and live up to the opportunity presented by the peculiar
political conditions existing in the state; there is hope among the opposi
tion—as well as fear among the many who are anxious that the factional
dissentions shall be terminated even at the expense of party defeat —
that the democratic party may repeat the blunders of 1902 and 1904 and
jeopardize all chances of success.
It is useless now to discuss wherein we faiied in 1902 and 1904; it will
be more profitable to consider dispassionately tunc what the chances for
1910 are, whether the opportunity for success is presented and what the
conditions are that confront the Democratic party in this campaign.
This is an off year politically and the vote cast by both parties will as
usual be much smaller than in presidential elections. Covering a period
of twenty years—since 1890 —we find that in off years the average demo
cratic vote polled was 137384 as against an average republican vote of
175739. while in presidential years the average democratic vote was
168290 as against an average republican vote of 233829.
The smallest number of votes cast in this state for governor since
ISJO was in 1906, when the total vote polled was 319746; in that year the
democratic vote was less than in any year since 1881, and this no doubt
was due to the feeling of discouragement at the lost opportunities of
1902 and 1904 aided by the disorganizing influences of the direct primary
The largest democratic voce ever cast in this state was in the presi
dential election of 1892, when Grover Cleveland received 177325 votes and
Geo. vV. Peck for governor received 178245.
The vote in the last three presidential elections in this state was as

An analysis of the vote for governor in 1904 as compared with the
vote for president—taking the democratic vote for governor in 1900 as a
basis—will show that in 1904 when LaFollette for governor had 52911
votes less than Roosevelt for president, that 45648 republicans voted for
Peck for governor, while 30021 democrats voted for LaFollette and that
had it not been for this large democratic LaFollette vote the result of
the election should have been : Peck 206322; LaFollette 197232.
In that year LaFollette ran 52911 behind Roosevelt, while in 1900
when first nominated and opposition to his nomination for governor was
withdrawn and a treaty of harmony signed, McKinley’s vote was only
2348 more than that received by LaFollette.
The conditions this year are very much as they were in 1904, accentu
ated by the factional contentions among the republicans,—a desire on the
part of the people for cessation of this continual political strife, —and
among the democrats, a greater feeling of harmony and desire to unify
the party.
Studying the election returns of the past twenty years must con
vince that the Democratic party cannot hope to win by placing depend
ence only upon its average party vote cast in off-years. To be successful,
it must hold not only its own average vote, but be able to draw upon the
usual republican and independent vote for from 25000 to 35000 votes.
It might be very pleasing just now to paint a few rainbows and unload
a few rhapsodies of democratic hopes of victory, but just now the possibil
ity of a democratic victory is more like a hard and cold proposition in
arithmetic. No use to conjure up a mirage of a beautiful green park
with anew capitol building in the center and four lakes dotting the dis
tance, if only for the purpose of enabling a few ambitious individuals to
rise up to lead a forlorn hope in order to qualify them for membership in
the Also-Ran-Club. Much better now to consider bow the victory can be
won, than to offer explanation later how it all happened.
To win, we must hold our own average vote and gain enough more to
give a plurality of the total vote cast. Can we do that and how? There
are no great political issues to hold or 1-ally the people in this state cam
paign. There is absolutely no hope in this campaign to convert a suf
ficient number to democratic doctrine and principles to gain a victory in
The real situation is just this : The opportunity of the Democratic party
in this campaign is a disorganized opposition. Whatever the Republican
party may be in other states, in Wisconsin the personal ambitions of the
demagogue and the demoralizing influences of the direct primary law
have rent the party into factions and cliques, in which each new effort
at harmony creates anew disturbing element; add to this the determi
nation of the insurgent representatives to re-elect themselves to con
gress; of Battle Bob’s denunciations of every attempt to make him loosen
his strangle-hold on the senatorship,—and five candidates for the nomi
nation for governor, each one of whom under ordinary conditions prior
to the days of direct primary methods would have considered himself
sufficiently honored by an appointment as assistant sergeant-at-arms at
a state convention, —and whatever the outcome of the primary it will be
impossible for the candidates to command a full party vote.
Whoever the candidate on the republican ticket may be
he cannot command the vote except of his ownfaction;
that does not however mean that the vote of the other faction
will be cast for the democratic ticket —it may not be
cast at all. With some candidate the opposition faction may bp
ready tocontent itself by simply plunging the knife in and let it go at
that, while with another the preference would be to do the carving with
a saw and meat axe. LaFollette will continue to make his emotional
quivering appeal to fair-minded democrats,—but the water is low and
suckers ice hope are few; McGovern will play for any kind of a vote he can
get, be it socialist, Catholic or A. P. A.—the voibe in the wilderness of
dissention may be the voice of Jacob but the hand will be the hand of
Esau, ready to grab or knife anything that comes its way.
It is that kind of a situation the democrats must meet; they too have
the direct primary law with its disorganizing influences, which adds to
the difficulties and may spoil the best laid plans for a strong and superior
ticket, yet every effort must be made to comply with the spirit of the
law—that the nominations be made by the direct vote of the members
of the party.
The situation and the conditions confronting the democratic party
with any hope of success will require the nomination for every office on the
State ticket of the best man in the party for that particular office. Suc
cess will in a very, very large measure be dependent upon the kind, the
class and the character of the men selected as candidates. There never
was a time when unselfish devotion to party and patriotism were so much
demanded as just now. What is now demanded is a willingness to
answer the call if called , and meanwhile suppress personal ambition and
await the decision of the party as to who shall be drafted to serve and
do dut}\
The party requires candidates who cau not only hold the vote of the
party but whose standing and reputation for faithful service and accom
plishment are such that they will command the respect and confidence
of all classes and can draw on that body of voters who are tired of
the constant political agitation, turmoil and strife and who are anxious
for political peace and an able, conservative, e onomical state adminis
tration. To win we must have this vote in sufficient numbers and it can
be secured only with the right kind of candidates. The Pilot believes
that the make-up of the ticket is a matter of such grave importance
that the state convention should take it up and recommend candidates
to the voters at the primary. To comply with the spirit of the law and
to create an especial interest by friendly rivalry the convention should
recommend two candidate* for each office so apportioned by locality and
nationality to add the greatest strength to the ticket, and then with a
clean, straight, progressive yet conservative declaration of principles the
democratic party can successfully meet the existing conditions. Whether
that success shall be temporary and end there, will depend upon how
well the candidates as officials have merited the confidence of the people.
The Democrat* can wm, but only by the selection as candidates of the
ablest, cleauest. strongest men drafted for real service, and the state
convention must take the initiative to make certain of the essential I
factors for victory in November.

The Milwaukee Journal asks The
Pilot this question: “Would you vote
for LaFollette if he were a Demo
crat?” Not on your life; LaFollette
has been too busy all bis life knifing
Ifemocrats. He could not break into
the Democratic party, no matter how
hard he tried to do so. He is not en
titled to a single Democratic vote.—

But your candidate for governor,
Gen. MacArthur, does not even pre
tend to be a Democrat. He’s an out
and out ship subsidy Republican.—
Milwaukee Journal.
Gen. Arthur MacArthur was one of
the youngest volunteers'of our civil
w ar, and tnlisted-at its very outbreak.
He was awarded the medal of honor
by congress for seizing the colors of
his regiment at a critical moment
and floating them on the captured
works on the crest of Missionary
Ridge. He was in most of the great
battles of that war. He was pro
moted for merit, service and bravery
through every grade, until as Lieu
tenant Colonel lie was honorably
mustered out in 1860. In 1866 he
was with the 16th U. S. Ini. and
steadily advanced in grade until at
the commencement of the Spanish-
American war, he was appointed
Brigadier General of Volunteers and
placed in command of the First Brig
ade of the Bth Army Corps in the
advance on Manilla; for gallant ser
vice he was appointed Major General
of Volunteers in command of the
Department of Northern Luzon; ap
ointed Brigadier General in the U.
a. army in 1900; appointed Military
governor of the Philippines, May stli,
1900 to Jul,> 4th, 1901. Appointed
Major General in 1001 and reaching
the highest grade of Lieutenant Gen
eral, Sept. 15, 1906. He was placed
on the retired list and returned to his
home in Milwaukee, where in 1908,
he was elected commander of tire
Wisconsin coinmandery of the Mili
tary Order of the Loyal Legion. His
life from a young man until recently
has been spent in active service in the
regular army of our countrj’. He lias
never held a political office; never
been in politics. His father was the
democratic lieutenant governor of
Wisconsin from 1856 to 1858 and from
March 21st to March 25th, 1856, was
Governor of this state.
To the Milwaukee Journal the
Pilot has this to say: That up to the
present time Gen. Arthur MacArthur
has been too busy in the U. S. army
to dabble in politics and whatever
may be said of his politics, up to this
time, therefore, counts for naught.
Should the democratic nomination for
Governor be tendered him and
accepted lie will be tlie next Governor
of Wisconsin.

occasionally put in a wedge.

The anxiety of President Taft with
respect to the postal savings baffle bill
which becomes a law with his signa
ture, is not difficult if comprehension.
When the deft., of the bill was
threatened president even went
so far as to abandon a trip and to de
clare he would remain in Wash
ington all summer if necessary to
force the passage of the measure.
This statement of his might not
have carried much weight but for the
fact that he held upon his desk the
building appropriation bill and certain
other measures that constitute what
is commonly called the pork barrel
approval of which he would withhold
until the postal savings bank should
be passed.
Both parties, before the last presi
dential campaign, were pledged to
the policy of establishing postal sav
ings banks and there should not have
been much difficulty in reaching an
agreement on the subject but for the
fact that the Republican measure
proposed contained certain provisions
that would work to the advantage of
Wall street as against the interests
of the localities w here the deposits
are made.
The national Democratic platform
provided as follows:
We favor a postal savings bank if
the guaranteed bank cannot tye secur
ed, and believe that it should be so
constituted as to keep the deposited
money in the communities where the
depositors live. But we condemn the
policy of the Republican party to pro
posing postal savings banks' under a
plan of conduct by which they will
aggregate the deposits of the’ rural
communities and deposit the same
while under government charge in the
banks of Wall street, thus depleting
the circulation medium of the produc
ing regions and unjustly favoring the
speculative markets.
This is precisely what the bill does
for the hanks of Wall street, makes it
possible to drain the money of the
country into the money centers and
out of reach of local investors, and de
feats tiie original purpose of the
postal bank idea which grew out of
the panic of 1907 when there grew up
a popular demand for a place of de

Not so much because it is one of
the Redublican platform measures as
because it has been so framed as to
conserve the interests of those whom
the Republican party primarily serves

even to the extent of foregoing a ride
upon the cars which lie had planned.

On the Right Track.
The new chairman of the Demo
cratic State Central Committee has
placed himself on record as opposed
to the nomination of a ticket at the
convention to be held in Milwaukee
on July 12th. He says.
“What will the state convention do?
That’s up to the convention. It has
the power to shape its ow n ends. Will
it nominate candidates for the various
offices? That I do not know. That
matter was considered long and care
fully by the state central committee,
and it was unanimously the judgment
of the members that the convention
should not nominate candidates.
Personally, 1 think it would be a mis
take, and a grievious one, to nominate
single candidates for the various
offices? If it nominates candidates at
all, it should nominate two candidates
for each office. My own opinion is
that it is wrong in principle as well
as poor judgment to violate the spirit
of the primary law which is the law
of this state and upheld by the su
preme court in its recent decision.”
To place one ticket in the-field at
the convention, w ill be a mistake that
will work incalculable harm to the
party. It will result in the loss of
thousands of votes. Thtv democrats
will stay at home, or help out some
friend on the republican side for they
will feel safe as to their own ticket
as any number voting for it will place
it in nomination. Give us two or
three tickets if necessary.

The Language of Rapture.
She was one of a Sunday walking
party which was wending Its way
southward to the brow of West Rock.
At a turn In the path there burst on
her view that vista which seldom falls
to impress the one for the first time
beholding It, a view hardly to be
equaled in this part of New England.'
At her feet lay the resting city In its
length and breadth, its streets and
houses and public buildings standing
out clear In the leafless springtime.
Eastward was sentinel East Rook,
with its heavenward pointing sliaft
reflecting the westering sun. South
ward were the waters of the blue har
bor, and further the bluer waters of
the sound, while'one could almost
discern In the dimmer distance the
white sands of Long Island. It was
an Impressive vision, and the beholder
was visibly Impressed. Her ruby lips
parted In a burst of rapture, and this

Buzzards Seldom Use Same “Home”

The flight of the buzzard la as well

In fact, he might he called the most
perfect aeroplane In existence. To
see him soaring befeveen the bare
hills, with a vast green fertile valley
below him, and with the spring sun
lighting tip his brown plumage as ha
slowly sails around, with outspread
pinions, is a sight never to be forgot
The buzzard usually chooses a
ledge on a cliff for an eyrie, but In
certain parts of Wales there are a few
well used nests in trees, and as
these are generally used by some
bird of prey each season, they grow to
an enormous size. The buzzard does
not as a rule, use the same nest two
consecutive seasons, but return* to
It the third, and after that allowa an
other season to elapse before occupy
ing it again.
Two nests are often constructed In
one dingle, and nn amusing lneldeut
happened a few years ago In one of
these places. The hen laid one egg In
each nest, and as It was quite Im
possible for her to sit on both at once,
we did her a good turn by placing one
of these eggs in the nest with Its com
panion. The result of our kindness
was that a collector passed by about
two hours afterward and put both
eggs In his collecting box.
When I thought the matter over I
came to the conclusion that that old
buzzard was not half such a fool as
we took her to be, and If we had
left the eggs as we found them the
bird might have had a chance of rear
ing one yonngster -Country Life.
