OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY PAPER. TUESDAY, JULY 25, 1911. Published weekly and entered at the Post Office at Wausau as second class matter. A National Issue. When General Hancock was nomi nated as the Democratic candidate for president, he declared in his speech of acceptance that the tariff was a local issue. So it was at that time, and so, in a certain sense, it is yet, as shown by the fact that certain southern democratic members of the national legislature are high tariff advocates. Thus Senator Bailey of Texas favors a high tariff on raw wool, cotton and lumber, because Texas leads most other states in pro duction of these commodities. So with other southern politicians whose states are interested largely in lum ber, sugar, cotton, or rice. Other statesmen, both south and north, including many leading repub licans, have come to the conclusion that since Hancock made his famous declaration the aspect of the tariff issue has grown much larger, that it has become in the truest sense a national question, because, now it has become the “mother of trusts,” and trusts, left to pursue their selfish ways, unhampered and unrestrained, are robbing the consumers of the country in many ways. They are al so robbing the producers of raw materials, because they control manu facture, consequently the market and, consequently the prices of raw ma terial, —sugar, coffee, tobacco, meat on the hoof, wheat, lumber stumpage, iron, cotton, wool, etc. The consumer is cheated in more ways than one. The fact obvious to everyone is that he pays the price fixed by the trust, because there is no competitor, or, at any rate, no real competitor of the trust. If it does not produce all the output of its own specialty it produces so nearly all that the few and weak concerns who might compete do not dare to for fear of being mercilessly crushed out of existence. Their only means of self preservation is to adopt the prices fixed by the trusts. Then, again, the profits of a busi ness depend upon the demand for it, and the trusts, because they enjoy practical monopolies of their special ties can create a demand. One ob vious mode by which they do this is by limiting the output, so astocreate an artificial scarcity and make that scarcity a ehronicor normal condition. But there is another way, which, through fiendish, is adopted, or at least is a natural result of monopoly, and that is by producing goods that are not well made, and are made from shoddy materials, so that they wear out soon, making it necessary for the consumer to buy others in a short time. Our older citizens, for instance, can remember the time when the stitching of ready made clothing, and shoes, outlasted the material in them, and when the material was better than now. The time is not so long ago when a person whose vocation was manu facturing made it his highest ambi tion, and strongest effort, to produce articles that were honestly made; when a workman who slighted his work could not hold his job. Such an ideal was necessary to success in those days because there was compe tition and the manufacturer who produced the most durable goods got t lie largest number of customers. Competition was obviously the cause of this, but now, competition no long er exists, hence honesty no longer is the best policy in dealing with our own citizens, because they are compelled to buy from the trusts or go without necessaries of life. The trusts can make honest goods, and they do so for the foreign markets now, because competition compels them to; also they sell for honest prices in foreign countries. It is not even denied now, though it was denied until proved be yond a doubt, that American trust made articles are sold in foreign lands much cheaper than here. Pro hibitive tariffs which are misnamed “protective” are the sole and sufficient causes which enable the trusts to rob the American consumers. Jesse Pomeroy, known as “the boy murderer,” who after thirty-seven years in solitary confinement in the state prison at Charlestown, Mass., is soon to leaves his cell for greater freedom. Pomeroy killed two chil dren. a boy and a girl, after treating them with barbaric cruelty, lie was guilty of beating other children until they were unconscious anti delighted in other ways of mal-treating them. The juvenile monster deserved all the punishment lie has received and more, too, instead of maudlin sym pathy. Strong pressure is being brought upon former Congressman C. 11. Weisse of Sheboygan Falls, to induce him to be a candidate to succeed the late T. E. Ryan as Wisconsin mem ber of the democratic national com mittee. If selected he would lie a power of strength to his party in his state and nation. Daniel H. Grady of Portage, an accomplished orator, is also mentioned and is a strong com petitor, and is in every eminently qualified for the position. The legislature adjourned last week after being in session 185 days. The of laws passed was 650, and appropriations amounted to $12,- 000,000 not including that provided by previous ’egislatures or to be raised by special tax levies. It was next to the longest session on record. Reciprocity Bill Passed The Canadian reciprocity bill passed the senate without change Saturday afternoon, by a vote of 53 to 27, after amendments had been voted down. The vote on the measure was as fol lows: For—republicans 21, demo crats 32; against—republicans 24, democrats 3; pairs—lo for and 10 against. The republicans were badly split in connection with the passage of the bill, the democrats presenting practically a united front. When the house reassembles tome: row the en grossed act will be signed by chair man and taken to the White House, where it will receive the approval of the president. William Jennings Bryan, thrice democratic candidate for the presi dency, has started his fight to prevent Gov. .Judson Harmon of Ohio, from securing the democratic nomination for the presidency in 1912. Harmon bolted the democratic national ticket in 1896, and used his influence to elect Wm. McKinley, the republican candi date. At the same time Bryan is de fending himself for having bolted against the candidacy of Mayor J. C. Dahlman of Omaha, for governor of Nebraska last November. Champ Clark, speaker and demo cratic leader of the house, is shy just $166.67 every day he spends in Wash ington during the Chautauqua sea son. His work on the platform would bring him SI,OOO a week. Politics is dear experience—sometimes. Andy Carnegie says he knows nothing of any steel trust. For one so extensively in the library business Andy is exceedingly illinformed. “PUT HER IN BUCKWHEAT” Young Preacher Who Was Exhorting Mountain Farmers Received Un expected Solution of Problem. A young preacher had been sent out by the state mission board to hold evangelistic meetings In the moun tains, and at the first one he held he met Lin Dobbins, a tall, lank, rusty looking indiivdual who immediately conceived a great liking for the preacher, and decided to let his crops go while he followed him. So every where the minister went, Lin went, too; and he always sat on the front seat with one leg crossed over the other, his chin in his hand, his elboy resting on his knee, looking up at the preacher as if he were some kind of deity. The young preacher knew very little about the methods of tie mountain farmers and their haphazard manner of scratching a living out of the rough hillsides; so when he attempted to use illustrations which he fancied would appeal to their understanding, Lin always became uneasy. “Let me tell you,” said the preacher one night, “of a certain man who had a piece of ground. The snows melted and the ground lay moist beneath the rays of the early spring sunshine. The many voices of awakening life called to this man, but he heeded them not. He failed to plow his ground in due season; and even after the gentle rains came and the buds put forth, his land still lay untouched. Seed time passed away, the summer sun poured down upon the ground, and the weeds had grown up in rank profusion. The day of harvest was nigh at hand, but he had sown nothing. At that late day, what was to be done?” He paused to give his words effect, and at this juncture, Lin, who with dropped jaw and open mouth had taken all this in, suddenly threw up his head, made a speaking trumpet of his hand, and exclaimed in a very audible stage whisper: “Put her In buckwheat!” —National Monthly. > Gone Is Age of Sentiment. Among the out of date warships to be sold at Toulon by the order of the French government are the armor clads Magenta and Admiral Baudin, the cruisers Milan and Pascal and three submarines, Lutin, Gymfiote and Gustave Zede. The Lutin was the little submarine which sank off Bizerta roadstead in 1906, drowning two officers and four teen men. She was raised and brought to Toulon, but left In the ar senal unrepaired. The Gustave Zede and the Gymnote are the two earliest submarines of the French fleet, dating from 1888 to 1889. Both were in active service for over twenty years. It seems a pity that they should be broken up for old iron instead of be ing preserved as historic relics, par ticularly the Gymnote, the first boat to navigate under water and the first to torpedo an armorclad —in 1901, in the roadstead of Ajaccio. The Young Man’s Tact. The man who was having his pic ture taken in the photograph gallery was an innocent listener to this con versation between two young ladies on the other side of the screen: “You know, Kate, I sometimes wear a long curl hanging down the back of my neck?” "Yes.” "Well, when Phil was calling on me the other evening he asked me if he might have that curl, and I Jokingly said yes. Before I knew what he was about he had taken a little pair of scissors out of his pocket and clipped it off, close to my head.” “Why, the idea! Didn’t that make you furious?” “Not for the smallest fraction of a second. I thought It was splendid of him that he didn’t seize it and pull it off.”—Youth’s Companion. The Merry Chase. “Friend," began the st: r '.ling philos opher. “do you know anything about the pursuit of happiness?” “Ought to,” chuckled the rural con stable. as he filled his mouth with to bacco. “Calculate I have chased more eloping couples than any man in this section.” Not Yet Christened. The Browns had anew piano, and Jessica was telling two little neigh bors all about it “What Is the name of your pi.uio?** asked on* listener. “Ours is the Pick ering.” “Why—we haven’t named ours yet replied Jessica, rather puzzled. "You „ee, it only came last night” SHOR”' NEWS ITEMS. Since the new child labor law went into effect it has resulted in a number of our manufacturing institutions dis charging a number of employes who could not be employed under the new law. The Pilot a week ago published some of the important features of this law, which is a very stringent measure. Atty. Erbstein of Chicago, a noted lawyer, is in the city today conferring with Tony Imperio and Phillip Roberti, two Italians, confined in the Marathon county jail for the killing of Sheriff John Radcliffe of Eagle River. A negro lawyer of Chicago was in the city a few days ago and held a confe with the two dagos. The Waus~ r .. ..sentatives who attended tne shuwt held in Monroe recently have got their pay envelopes. They left Monroe in a hurry before prizes were announced, in order to get back to the city on Monday morn ing. The boys won on the several targets a total of $170.62. This was divided as follows: Frank Mathie $45.65; Otto Mathie, $.‘15.00; A. Lipin ski, $17.50: Paul Weinkauf, $38.75; F. Ritter, $10.22; Ililmer Schmidt, $4.00 Otto Mueller, $19.50. The Wausau boys won no firsts and were third on team shoot. They won most of their money on individual scores. Jos. McClosky, the popcorn vender, has left town without making any statement as to where he was going. The general impression is that he has gone out west to buy a turkey ranch. It seems queer, but it’s a fact never theless that every time Joe disappears a certain girl also leaves town. This girl has not been seen since Friday. Her disappearance of course has no connection with Joe’s leaving town, but we mention it merely as a news item. McOloskey is to be tried Aug. 7 for a former escapade with this girl, and is under bonds of $2,000 for his appearance on the above date. Joe lost his popcorn wagon a few days ago, Sheriff O’Connor seizing it to satisfy a claim against it. Different. “Why, a year ago you told me this place was easily worth $15,000. Now you estimate its value at less thaD $10,000.” “You must remember that I was trying to sell it to you then. Now you want me to sell it for you." THE - . LEAVINGS. "Every dog has its day.” “Yes, and every cat its night, and poor man takes what is left” Who Wrote ’Em? "Cease to do evil, Learn to do well--” "Is an excellent rule. As many can tell.” She Laughed It Off. “What is wrong between them?” “He suggested jokingly that her hair was false, and she started to laugh it off.” “And did she succeed?” “Yes, when she threw back her head to laugh it off it caught in the back of the chair and came off.” A Black Outlook. She —Why are you loking so sol emn this morning? He —I was worried over a dark sug gestion an acquaintance made me yes terday. She —What was it? He—He asked me if I hadn’t better get in the coal this summer. A Summary. “So Jaggsby has gone to Africa to hunt wild game? The last time I met him, he told it was wedding bells for him.” “Yes, but he and his bride were continually quarreling.” “Oh, I see how things went Jingle, Jangle, jungle.” Useful. “How did that anti-trust decision af fect our friend the monopoly king?” “The news of it arrived Just in time to be of great benefit to him. He was suffering from hiccoughs and needed a little scare." WHY POETS SING —j 1 She —I wonder why poets always sing about the delights of spring? He —Few poets have money enough tc have a house; therefore they don’t know the trials and tribulations of housecleaning. An Author’s Confession. Although his book had made a hit. Original in thought and diction. The man who wrote the ads for it Composed the more Ingenious fiction. Excessive. “Do you call the past June days rare?” “Nd, I call them raw. Contrary Clues. “Why was Jack so down on Jim’s plans ?" “Because he war up to his trick*.” WORK FOR EDUCATION MANY STUDENTS SUPPORT THEMSELVES IN COLLEGE. Statistics Gathered at Princeton Uni versity Showing the Varied Occu pations That Were Taken Up by the Young Men. Statistics recently gathered at Princeton, show that 40 per cent, of the students are working their way through college. This means that of the entire enrollment of 1,442 stu dents 577 are helping themselves to gain an education. These figures in clude all those who are making money in small and larg° amounts, and do not mean that the men are not getting outside assistance of a substantial kind. Students paying half their expenses are included in 20 per cent, figures, and those paying their way through without any help from others could be put within the ten per cent, limit. There are scores of ways of making money at Princeton, and the fact that so many students take advantage of them is sufficient evidence that to work a little on the side is consid ered highly honorable by the student body as a whole, and it explains the further fact, that among those work ing their way through are some of the most prominent men in college, both in athletics and in scholarship. One of the most popular ways of making enough money to help pay a term bill or keep the recipient in spending money is work on the col lege publications. Agencies of various kinds—from laundry work to socks that won’t tear out —give profitable employment. Three principal laundries doing stu dent work have student representa tives. These men are usually ath letes, as are those who have clothing and athletic goods agencies. Calen dars are sold by students at one dol lar apiece and cigarettes, tobacco, steins, p->nnants, sofa pillows, pipes and the l.'ke are offered to the stu dents, but to freshmen especially, at the beginning of every college year. Freshmen carry baskets around, well stocked with pretzels and chocolates. Soft hat men come through the dormi tories in the fall and straw hat men in the spring. Shoes arc sold by stu dents, and orders for clothing of vari ous kinds are taken. Program priv ileges on the occasion athletic events are frequented, and the ad vertising thereon yield% a good re turn. Students are agents for typewriters, bicycles, kodaks, golf sticks, caps, canes and the like. The privilege of taking newspaper subscription on the campus is considered a good one. Magazines are represented in Prince ton by the score. Pressing establish ments yield some money.—New York Times. HOW THE JAPS FIGHT FIRE Review of the Tokio Department, as a Demonstration of Practical Efficiency, Was Farcical. Asa display of low comedU talent of acrobatic skill and of lung capac ity, the review of the Tokio fire bri gades at Hibiya park may have had a certain degree of interest, but as a demonstration of practical efficiency in dealing with what the Japanese translator loves to designate “confla grations” it was unutterably farcical. After witnessing such a lamentable display of ineptitude one could only marvel that the capital has hitherto escaped total destruction or that the ravages to which Osaka was subject ed last year were restricted to some 20,000 houses. It is true that the metropolitan fire companies represent a great advance upon what they were during the pre- Meiji days, when the greatest solici tude of the members of the “hi-keshi gumi” was devoted not to the task of extinguishing the flames but rather to that of preserving from incinera tion the little effigy of a god or patron saint which every company unfailing ly carried with it on these expeditions for good luck. Old residents bear witness to the vociferous energy and enthusiasm with which the firemen fulfilled this self-appointed task, while the fire in its turn merrily discharged its mis sion of gutting everything inflam mable within an accessible area. If, however, in the end the firemen es caped in withdrawing with their little wooden god still intact they were im mensely pleased with themselves and were satisfied that society at large could have no ground for demanding anything more than this. Cool and capable in war, the Japa nese, despite centuries of familiarity, appear to lose their headt when fire starts. Confusion reigns supreme. Connected with each fire station are large numbers of what may be termed auxiliaries, who have really nothing to do with the actual task of extin guishing the flames, but whose dutfes consist in appearing on the scene at the earliest possible moment armed with lanterns and in thereafter help ing to remove goods and chattels from the buildings within the danger zone.—New York Herald. Bear Romance Is Ended. Old Ben, the big black bear who has lived at the Bronx zoo almost ever since the zoo started, is dead. Old Ben was about twenty-two years old and Dr. W. Reed Blair believes that old age had a great deal to do with his death. But the attendants, who were fond of the good natured old fellow, insist that It was the shat tering of a bear romance that killed Ben. Ben was for many years a favorite with Clefty, a brown female bear who shared his den. Recently Clefty, who is much younger than Ben, began to show that she was bored by his atten tions, and she was shifted to an ad joining den. Next door to her new quarters lives a young and handsome Abyssinian bear, and it wasn’t long before Clefty was rubbing noses with him. Ben, catching this courtship from his enforced bachelor quarter;*, began to refuse food and medicines couldn’t restore his Interest in life. And when he died Clefty didn’t stop rubbing noses with the Abyssinian for evtn a moment’s warning.—New York Sun. • 7“ ———— Th* Easier Way. First Burgilr—Stung!

Massacres by the Treacherous Nana Sahib—Black Hole of Calcutta and Other Places of That His toric Nightmare. At Cawnpur was a large native gar rison, and when they mutinied, Nana Sahib put himself at their head. The Europeans, including more women and children than fighting men, were be seiged for two weeks, and then, trust ing to a safe-conduct from Nana Sa hib, they surrendered. They em barked on boats on the Ganges, the boats were set afire and shot at by the natives from both banks, and only four escaped. The women and chil dren were massacred a few days later, some of them being pitchforked living upon the bayonets of their mur derers. Delhi was beseiged for months from the surrounding ridge, over which I have walked and driven, but it was only in September that the Kashmir Gate was blown in, and Nicholson fell at the head of the storming party. The chief commisioner of Oudh was a Lawrence, and not a Lawrence for nothing. He prepared for a siege in the residency at Lucknow, and was mortally wounded there, but his intel ligent provision saved his companions till at last Lucknow was relieved. It is one of the ghastly nightmares of history to see that Black Hole of Calcutta, that well at Cawnpur, that cellar in the residency at Lucknow, that grave-dotted ridge at Delhi. Wom en and children outraged, suffocated, pitchforked on bayonets, burnt, stab bed, starved and strangled; it is a horrible tale. Say what one will of all that, it is British business, British vengeance, not ours, but it is a dis grace to the whole white race that British callousness, and lack of taste and reverence, should permit these graves to be overgrown with weeds, should suffer that miserable little graveyard on the ride above De’hi, should allow the lettering on the Kashmir Gate to become defaced.

Life Saving Contests for M ners. Mining men from all parts of the country attended the second annual inter-company meet of first aid teams held recently at Wilkes-Barre, Pa., under the auspices of the National Red Cross society. United States army officers acted as judges in the con tests in which various teams demon strated their skill in rescuing miners under most difficult conditions. An air-tight mine chamber was built in an open field for the contests and charged with various kinds of fumes, such as are met with in coal mines, and it was in this that the first aid teams did their rescue work, com pleting their task of restoring the rescued men out in the open air. Teams from the Lehigh Valley Coal company, Pennsylvania, Hillside, Tem ple and Delaware, Lackawanna and Western competed in the events, which were in charge of Maj. Charles Lynch of the United States army. For the first time in the history of the movement there was a display of first aid work by engineers from the government experiment station at Pittsburg. How the Spirits Spell. “Judging by spiritistic communica tions I have received lately simple spelling must be more popular in the world beyond than it is in this,” said a man who patronizes mediums. "Hall the messages received from the spirit land nowadays are spelled in a way to bring joy to the hearts of the simple spellers. Not one medium, but many, transmit them thus. Me diums who know the old-fashioned spelling book well enough to spell down a whole room full of folks hav< gone over to the revised edition. “Whatever force it is that guidei their hands when transmitting mes sages must be impressed with th utility of the new system. At the las' seance I attended I received a com munication from a man who fought new-fangled spelling with his dyinf breath, but since he passed over h must have learned something to mak< him change his mind, for he now writes like a disciple of Artemui Ward.” —New York Times.

Rorer, the well-known cooking expert, compared French and American cooking in a lecture to the girl graduates of Chicago. “American cooking, with Its simple dishes and Its free use of the grill,” she said, “Is healthful; but the rich sauces of French cooking and the lib eral use of the frying pan make the FYench flabby and dyspeptic. “I was once entertained at a Paris restaurant famous for Its chef. We had such dishes as salmi of becasse, etuve of beef and aubergine au gratin —and then my host, leaning back with a satisfied smile, handed me the menu and said: “ ‘And what’ll we have next, Mrs. Rorer?” “‘Well,’ Bald I, ‘I think we’ll have Indigestion next.'"
