TUESDAY, JAN. 10, 1911. Published weekly and entered at the Post Office at Wausau as second class matter. The supreme court of the United States held, on Jan. 3d, that the bank guaranty laws of Oklahoma, Nebraska and Kansas were constitutional. The papers say that a genuine mid winter blizzard is on its way direct from Alaska and according to the weather bureau will reach this section about the middle of this week. But then we’ve known these predictions to lail and perhaps they will this time. The weather today in Wausau does not presage anything of the kind. David Harlowf., long a resident of Milwuakee, has been appointed a member of the state railroad com mission by Gov. McGovern to fill the unexpired term of B. H. Meyer. Mr. Harlowe had been chosen for this position once before, but could not see his way clear to accept. He is one of the very able men of our state, and will prove a valuable acquisition to the board. It appears as if Capt. William Mitchell Lewis is inaugurating his campaign for the governorship rather early. We note that some of our ex changes are conducting voting con tests, offering prizes to those who prove to be the most popular women In town. A large cut of the captain is run, and underneath the words, “A 25-vote coupon to each one who will send to this office the full name of the well known young man whose cut appears above.” The captain will have an opportunity of getting rid of another $77,000 in the next two years, and then when he finds out what happened he will probably get another surly streak, and close up his factory, on account of his workmen’s “pernic ious activity” in politics, as he did last September. Only four of the cities in Wis consin made a gain of one-third or more in population during the last decade, as shown by the 1910 federal census. The census figures for these four cities are as follows : City Pop. 1900 Pop. 1910 pc. gain Wausau 12,350 16,560 34 Green Bay 18,684 25,236 36 Beloit 10,436 15,125 45 Kenosha 11,605 21,371 90 The phenomenal giin by Kenosha is accounted for by the removal of several law manufacturing plants to that city from Chicago. Close behind Wausau in the race comes Madison with 29 per cent. gain. Superior with 30 per cent, and Racine with 31 per cent. The Wisconsin legislature will convene tomorrow noon. It is said that for the first time in many years there will be no contests. The slate for both houses has been arranged and from present appearances will go through without a hitch. It is as follows: President protein of the senate, Senator H. C. M.'.rtin, Darling ton; chief clerk, F. M. Wythe, Madi son; sergeant at arms, C. A. Luclib, New Lisbon. Speaker of the assem bly, C. A Ingram, Durand; chief clerk, C. E. Shaffer, Madison; sergeant at arms, probably W. S. Irvine, Clark county. It is believed that the session will be a long one. The ma jority may find some difficulty and rough sledding in carrying out the state platform of the party, and there are many important measures to be threshed out. It is quite likely that ihe legislature will not adjourn before June. It is not known as yet when the matter of choosing a suc cessor to the lion. Robert Marion La- Folletve will be taken up, nor do the stalwart republicans seem to have settled upon a candidate for the lion. Robert’s seat. Gov. McGovern’s message is in the hands of the printer, and it is under stood will be presented to the legisla ture on Thursday. Aside from rec ommendations regarding platform pledges, its contents are a matter of conjecture, the governor having kept his counsel well. It is believed he will call special attention to the amendments to the primary law, to strengthening the corrupt practices act and passage of laws for state con trol of the water powers and for an income tax. Call for Convention of the Wiscon sin Skat League A delegate convention of the W is consin Skat League is called to be held at the banquet room of the Republican house, northwest corner of Third and Cedar streets, in the city of Milwaukee, Milwaukee county and state of Wisconsin, Sun day, January 29th, 1911, at nine o’clock in the fotenoon for the purpose of receiving the annual report of its officers, to transact such other busi ness as may come before the conven tion and to elect officers. The appor tionment of delegates to said conven tion is upon the following basis: Every duly organized skat club in the state of Wisconsin is entitled to one delegate up to the first 25 members and one additional delegate for each fifty members or major fraction thereof thereafter. Every city, town or village in which no organized skat club exists, if represented by one or more skat players, at the ensuing tournament, such city, town or village shall be entitled to one delegate. The , ames of all delegates with their post office address shall be certi fied to the secretary on or before the 14th day of January, 1911, who will issue a proper credential to each dele gate- Let Us Make It 25,000 Without any booming or boosting: without, in fact, any effort beyond letting things take their own course, Wausau has grown faster than any other city in Wisconsin except three—Green Bay, Beloit and Kenosha. Such a large growth, acquired without effort, is surely a healthy one. In the meantime let it be remembered that several nearby suburbs have taken out of the city limits a large number of people dur ing the last decade. Our city has out grown its limits, and it is safe to say that if all were counted who really live in the city, though not within its statutory limits, another one thousand would be added to our population. This fine growth, coming without especial effort, suggests a question that every Wausau citizen should take to heart seriously. What will be the effect if we henceforth do what we can to push our city ahead; to make known its advantages so that the whole country shall know about us the facts that are now known to ourselves only. We have not a par ticle of doubt that with the right effort upon the part of our citizens and especially our business men, our city will reach or maybe pass the 25,000 mark during the next decade. If we do as wall as Beloit has done during the la f c decade, and take in the suburban districts that in fact belong to us, \.e shall easily ex ceed that mark. It is up to us now. Our location, our waterpower, our rapid gain over other cities in Central Wisconsin, these and many other ad vantages make it much easier for us to forge ahead now than it was ten years ago. We cun have a really large and important city here at Wausau. We can do it easily if we really try. Let us do it then. * The fight to prevent Senator Lori mer retaining his seat in the U. S. Senate is now on. Senator Beveridge submitted the following resolution in the U. S. Senate yesterday: “Resolved, That William Lorimer was not duly and legally elected to a seat in the senate of the U. S. by the legislature of the state of Illinois.” Truly Answered Boats trading in the Midway In for mer years rejoiced in rather curious names, aid the following was only one of the many amusing incidents re sulting from this: A boat named What’s That to You? passing a lockyard at nighttime was hailed as usual by the coast guards man. “Boat ahoy! Your captain's name?” “Captain X.” “Ami what are you ladeu with?" “Coals.” “Where bound for?” “Chatham.” “Ship’s name?” • “What’s That to You?” “I asked you the name of the ship.” “What’s That to You?” “You shall be reported for your insolence!” roared the coast guards man. Again he put the question, and, receiving the same reply, the boat was commanded to remain where she was. In the morning two boats were seen keeping guard. The officials, as they boarded the vessel w r ith full authority to seize the offenders, observed for the first time the name painted in large letters. Amid the laughter and jeers of the crew of the What's That to You? they pulled moodily away.—Lon don Telegraph. Political Passions of 1844. There were elements of picturesque ness and drama in the politics of the before the war time which are lack ing nowadays. Marion Harland tells in her autobiography of a Whig rally which makes the political meetings of today seem tame, cut and dried af fairs. It was In 1844. the year of Clay’s defeat, and feeling ran high. At that particular time John Tyler was perhaps the most unpopular man in the Union. In the progress of his review of national affairs the orator at last came to the hated name. In stantly uprose the majestic figure of Captain Cocke the local eccentric, cla \ in the scarlet English hunting coat he invariably wore. “The Lord have mercy upon the nation!” he cried, his voice solemn with wrath and sonorous with the mint juleps for which the Roll was noted. “Fellow citizens. I always cry to high heaven for mercy upon this country when John Tyler’s name is ruen timed! Amen and amen!” Distilled Gold. The Investigations of a French chemist show that gold in the electric furnace boils freely at a temperature of 2.400 degrees C. In two or three minutes, it is said, from 100 to 150 grams of gold pass into the state of vapor. In condensing upon a cold body this golden vapor forma filiform masses and cubic crystals. At its temperature of ebullition gold dis solves a little carbon, which at the time of resolidification is deposited in the form of graphite. In no alloy of gold and copper, copper distills first. In an alloy of gold and tin. the tin dis tills more abundautly than the gold, and when a large quantity of these mixed vapors is taken the tin burns on contact with the oxygen of the air, forming oxide of tin. colored purple by a fine dust of condensed gold. This is one method of preparing the color known as “purple of Cassius.” —Har- per's Weekly. Japanese Children. The Japanese child is exceedingly shy and retiring before its elders, and girls are taught to practice this more than boys. In the morning as soon as they are up the children go to their parents in turn, bow their heads to the ground and say ’’Good morntng” or “How is your honorable health?” Before a meal they lift the chop sticks to their foreheads and bow in thanks, whether their parents are present or not. for the meal set before them. Before going out to school or elsewhere and on returning they must kneel before the mother and bow. When father or mother go out the children must go to the porch, kneel down and say ’’Deign to go forth'' or “Honorable return.” as the case may be. As soon as infants can bow their heads the nurses train them in these respectful salutations.—Exchange. Certainly Helpful. Optimist—Ah!

The county board convened last Wednesday afternoon, and most of the afternoon was taken up in listen ing to reports from county officers, of the business transacted in their offices the past year. The matter of establishing a home for tuberculosis patients in this com munity was brought up and was made a special order of business for Thurs day. On Thursday the report of the county treasurer was read. A resolution was adopted which pro vides that hereafter each county officer on salary or salary and fees shall keep a record of all receipts and file the same w.th the county clerk in November. These reports will be used as a basis for tixipsr the salaries of such officers. The report of Wenzel Pivernetz, county superintendent of schools, was read. It showed that there are 15,525 children in the county between the ages of four and twenty, a gain of fifty-five over the year preceding; of these 6,930 attended school; the num ber living two miles or more from school is 590; the total teachers in the county is 242; they are divided: 30 male and 212 female; the number of schools supplying free text books is 152 ; there are recorded the names of one blind child, eight deaf and fifteen feeble minded in the county; the number of high schools, exclusive of the city is five, located in the follow ing villages : Athens, Edgar, Mosinee, Stratford and Unity; there are four graded schools of the first class as follows: Schofield, Spencer and Stratford; of the second class there are seven: Elderon, Fenwood, Marathon City, Norrie, Moon, Dist. No 3 of the town of Emmet and Dist. No. 7of the town of Wausau. Dur ing the year the village of Unity has erected anew school building at a cost of $15,000; Colby has one nearly completed costing $20,000 and the little village of Dancy has built a structure of cement blocks, the only one in the county of this construc tion. The chair appointed Supervisors J. D. Christie, John Ringle and W. N. Daniels a committee to fix the salary of the county superintendent of schools. These gentlemen later re ported in favor of fixing the superin tendent’s salary at $2,000 per year, to include all expenses, and the salary of his assistant. Miss Eva Bernier at S6OO per year. Peter Robinson a resident of the tow n of Eau Pleine died Sept. 20,1910, in the county poor house. The resi dents of that town presented a reso lution which said among other things that deceased, before his death, was possessed of $47.44, which had been taken i*v,ay from him by the super intendent and turned over to the county treasurer. Further, that the town had been at the expense of burying him, and the resolution pro vided that the above sum be turned over to the town by the county treas urer. It was carried. Frank Swanson of the town of Bergen, petitioned for a roadway to give ingress and egress to his land, stating that he has seven children of soiiool age, who can not conveniently attend school on account of there be ing no road. It was signed by quite a number of freeholders. On account of the chairman of the town not be ing present, no action was taken. The meeting having come to a close Chairman Plowman, who can no long er serve because of his election to the state legislature, arose and feelingly thanked the members for their uni form courtesy toward him while chairman. In return a rising vote of thanks to Mr. Plowman was extended by the board, expressive of the bond of uni son which has manifested itself since Mr. Plow man has been chairman. The report of the committee on per diem and mileage was accepted and approved, as was also a motion to adjourn. This was on Saturday morning. FINE SPRING WATER. Adolph Melang has made arrange ments to furnish spring water to the citizens of Wausau. He is the owner of the finest spring, probably, in the north. The spring is at the foot of Stony Foint hill near Little Rib river. This spring was known to the Indians long before Wausau’s first in habitant came. Mr. Melang has put in a cement receptacle which holds 500 gallons and this is more than filled daily by the spring. The water has been approved by the health officer of our city and as soon as possible an analysis will be furnished by the State Board of Health, samples of which have been furnished. Those who desire the best spring water that can lie secured, address Adolph Melang, R. F. D. No. 1, Wau sau. Mr. Melang will commence his daily rounds next Monday, and will furnish water every other day during the week at a price within the reach of all. MARRIAGE LICENSES.

Werhahn has received a call from Zion’s Evangelical Lutli erali church of 91st St. and Superior Ave., Chicago, and has accepted it.

Last Saturday night snow fell to the depth of six inches or more and Sunday morning everybody had to get busy shoveling snow. The storm kept up all day Sunday and in the afternoon the wind blew a perfect gale driving the snow in great drifts and filling the air to such an extent that it was difficult to get about. It was the fiercest storm of the winter thus far, trains were delayed and have been every day since. The snow is now over two feet deep on the level and unless we have thaws, any more snow will prove a serious thing. First National Bank.

The coldest day of the winter was Saturday morning, when the spirit level in the cage on the court house grounds showed that at some time during the previous night Jack Frost, or one of his imps, shoved the recording stuff down to twenty-two degrees below zero, and then sat on it and held it there. Since Christmas day we have had an abundance of snow. There is still 101 days of winter before us, with a few days of a nasty spring thrown in.
