* OFFICIAL CITY AND COJNTY PAPER. TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 1913. üblished weekly and entered at the Post office at Wausau as second class matter. PUBLIC NOTICE. To the people of Wausau :. Friday, May 2, 1913, has been desig-' nated as clean up and fire prevention day. While engaged in cleaning and beautifying our homes and surround ings, special attention should be given to the removal of all inflammable and combustible material, and to remedy ing sucli conditions which are liable to contribute to our unnecessary tire waste. All public, and as far as pos sible all premises, w ill be inspected by the chief of the fire department and the officers of the board of health. And wherever dangerous and un sanitary conditions remain, the same will be remedied at the expense of the premises. > Dated April 21, 1913. John Ringle, Mayor. Postmaster General Burleson announced that republican postmast ers would hold their positions until the end of their terms. President Wilson is intensely in favor of commission form of govern ment and was directly responsible for the success of the election at Jersey City, N. .1., last Tuesday. Joseph E. Davies announced on Friday tiiat President Wilson has decided to appoint John A. Ay 1 ward as United States attorney for the western district of Wisconsin to suc ceed George 11. Gordon of La Crosse. Secretary Bryan telegraphed, Saturday, to Gov. Johnson, California, requesting him to withhold his sig nature from any anti-alien land legis lation bill passed by the California legislature which might be in viola tion of treaties between the United States and Japan. Bryan and Clark have been es tranged since the democratic na tional convention, on account of the position taken by Mr. Bryan againf Mr. Clark in the contest for the presi dency. They met at a social function the oilier day, the first time since the Baltimore convention. In the pro gress of tiie evening they resolved to bury the hatchet. An immediate cut of $300,000,000 in the cost of living—eventually a slash of half a million. That is what the democratic leaders of the House be lieve the income tax will do for the American people. The relief prom ised by the democratic party for the terrible pressure of the costs of the necessities of life seem to be at hand. Only experience will reveal the full benefit to the public of the income tax. The annual saving over the counters of the nation’s grocery stores, butcher shops and clothing emporium is expected ultimately to reach $500,- 000,000. Some of the more sanguine regard even this estimate as too con servative. The saving may reach $000,000,000, or even more. It now seems likely that half a dozen bills to reform our banking system will be introduced at the special session of Congress. Carter Glass of Virginia will introduce into the House a bill clothed with the endorsement of the administration. Senator Weeks of Massachusetts has announced that he will introduce the National Monetary Commission's bid, commonly known as the “Aldrich bill.” Senator La Follette. Pro gressive, will have a bill of his own. modeled, it is said, after the Mone tary Commission’s plan, but differing from it in important particulars. Former Congressman Fowler of New Jersey will have a bill which he lias drawn up introduced into the House. Senator Hitchcock of Nebraska has a bill. There may be others. That Press Meeting. There is a disposition on the part of a few in tlie state, to create what is termed a progressive and conserva tive element in the democratic party. Tills is reprehensible to say the least. The prime leaders in this are men who were against Bryan in 189 ti, who thought then that it was not popular to be what is termed progressive. Since they havS become ultra pro gressives, to such an extent that they think they are the whole thing, when in fact, they are looked down upon as nothing but disturbers and have no more weight with the rank and tile of the democratic party than an un desirable bum has with respectable society. This same bunch of disturb ers are trying to divide the demo cratic press of Wisconsin. An at tempt was made recently to form a democratic press association. This move was started with the very best intentions, mainly to get together and work in unison for the good of the party. All are in accord with the democratic administration. There may be different views on the various questions which come up. We would not give a cent for a man operating a paper who did not have ideas of ids own and advocate them. This is a right vouchsafed to every American citizen. There was not a very large attendance at the press meeting held in Milwaukee, but we know there were present as consistent democrats as there are in the state, yet. up jumps a few of these 1-am-holier-than-thou democrats and take them to task, for not endorsing the tariff bill now before eongresr, if they had endorsed the tariff hill, then these democrats would have trumped up something else equally as silly. As it was the associa tion passed the following resolutions: The Wisconsin Democratic Press as sociation takes pleasure in commend ing the democratic administration at Washington, and in congratulating it upon the splendid start it has made in its determination to carry out the pledges made by the party jn its plat form of 1912. This association is especially gra i tied at the thorough democracy of President Wilson, as demonstrated in both his private and public acts and utterances, and believes his efforts to humanize the presidency of the United States should meet with the hearty approval of the country. In the president’s* selections of members of his cabinet he lias called to his aid and counsel the best brains of the nation, and this association is proud of the fact that there is at the head of eacli department at Wash ington a man of such ability and honor and honesty. This association of democratic news paper editors and publishers of Wis consin extends its hearty congratula tions to the democratic house of repre sentatives and senate of the United States and pledges itself to their support in their aim to enact legisla tion which will bring about greater happiness and prosperity to the American people. % What more could have been asked ? The facts are that there is not a democratic paper in Wisconsin that was and is not fully in accord with and worked for tiie election of Presi dent Wilson. The Pilot would sug gest this: Tiiat the democratic press, generally, of Wisconsin, dig up a little history of those who are posing today as the dyed-in-the-wool, holier than-thou democrats, who are disposed to try to read out of the party any of those who do not believe as they do.

Dr. Williams, who is in this city giving talkson \ arious questions, talk ed to the boys of the high school Thurs day and to the girls Friday on“ Heal th.” Dr. Williams talks at tiie high school have been a great help to many of the students. She lias several times be fore spoken here. Karl T. Borsack in speaking of the two victories of the dabators said, that while at Tomahawk, he met a gentleman from Freeport, 111., at the debate. The gentleman heard the Freeport - Rockford debate for tiie championship of Illinois and he said tiiat tiie Wausau boys could easily have beaten eit her Freeport or Rock ford. Mr. Borsack also thinks, that our teams ought to receive a cup for their splendid showing and possibly one can lie claimed. It has been pro posed that tiie negative and affirma tive teams have a debate for the benefit of tiie school and we hope that this can be carried ’out. We would also like to mention the fact that at Fond du Lac, at Oshkosh or any of those places, contests are arranged for debate as well as for the various atheletic events and vve think it ought to be tiius here.

I)ak., Neb., and Mo., and showed that Wausau was 31st of the 34 in matter of expenditure for schools, cities of about the size of this.
