Also that at the first meeting after aid election the mem bers of such board shall cast lots to determine who shall serve for a term of one year, who for a term of two years, who for a term of three who for a term of four years anil who for a term of five years, respectively.

The per diem and mileage of members is the same as that of mem tiers of ihe county board, but no member can receive compensation for more than fifteen days in each year. The duties of the lioard are varied and in many respects very im portant. hut the new law does not j effect the school system of this or any other city that is not under the juris- i diction of the county superintendent.)

Sfcrth Street POULTRY SHOW In Three Weeks the 3rd Annual Central Wisconsin Poultry Association Exhi bition Will Be Held Here.-Big Entry Expected. The third annual poultry exhibition of the Central Wisconsin Poultry As sociation will be held in this city on •l&nuary 28. 29, 30, 31 and February 1. Last year there were only four days of exhibition but such a success had been made and so many people entered poultry fropi away that it was de cided to lengthen the time to five days. Plans are lieing made and ti e biggest entry ever made is expected this year. A premium booklet is lieing printed and this will soon be mailed to everyone interested. Arrange ments have been completed whereby the building at the south end of Third street, formerly occupied by Ritter & Deutseh furniture company will lie used instead of Elks’ hall where last year’s show was held. A great many prizes will be offered, most of them, probably in beautiful cups resembling those of last January. The weather as it has been, would be the best for such an exhibition and if we have some of tills for those who enter their prize poultry we can lie assured that they will be pleased. CITY COUNCIL. The regular meeting of the oily council mel on Tuesday evening, ancl among other business transacted was the adoption of an ordinance making a provision for the election of one alderman and one supervisor anc alderman, in each ward in the city, who shall lie members of the com mon council. The supervisor and al derman shall also represent the ward on the count) lioard. These officers w ill be so elected at the next munici pal election. The ordinance w ill also be submitted to the voters of the city for approval at the spring election. Heretofore each ward in our city was represented on the County lioard bj only one vote.—the supervisor. The council authorized the pur chase of *OO cords of rock at $2.50 pei cord. Our macadam streets do not give the satisfaction expected. For a time they are smootl and enjoyable: in a year or so the top covering is blown away by automobiles and that which cannot be dislodged in this way is washed away by the rains, leaving tlie surface fi ll of sharp pointed rocks and very uneven. A discussion brought out the opinion that more of our streets should be paved with lasting material and that instead of our present macadam, we should have tar macadam, and it was voted to test out some of our streets on tar macadam. A workhouse for the city is needed, it is thought, and the board of public works submitted plans totl e council, draw n by the city engineer for such a building. It is proposed also, to use it as a storage for tools and imple ments belonging to the city. Several saloon licenses were granted in place of those which had been re linquished. The following resolution was adopted with a view of improving the tire department: Resalved that the committee on tire be and is hereby authorized and instructed to conduct an investigation without cost to the city (except post age and stationery) and report to v Jie council a plan or scheme, the adoption of which will bring the tire depart ment to a higher degree of efficiency without any additional cost of main tenance. BOWLING LEAGUE. Anew bowling league composed of four teams has recently been organ ized for the intermediate V. M. C. A. boys. The teams have been named as the White Sox, Cubs, Giants and Tigers. Captains have been elected by each team and a schedule which began last Saturday was made to followed until March when bowling leagues will probably close the season. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.

COUNTY BOARD SESSION An Adjourned Meeting of Marathon Solons at the County Capitol. The Hoard of Supervisors of this county, with Chairman J. I>. Christie in the chair, convened at the court house in this city Wednesday fore noon, nearly every memb r being present in his accustomed place, all ready to take a band in the general routine of business, being in session only three days. County Judge F. E. Rump submit ted a communication petitioning that his office be put on a salary basis, w hich was referred to the special com mittee and acted upon later. Municipal Judge L. Marchetti’s an nual report was read and placed on tile. The report showed 685 criminal and 48 civil cases disposed of. Fines and fees turned over and paid in, $1,770.31. Dr. W. A. Ladwig, as county physi cian, submitted his report for the past year and it was adopted. The doctor was reappointed for the ensu-< ing year for the sum as before—s7s. Good roads building was discussed and more than $50,000 was to be used for the expenditure during the com ing year, with granite gravel as the most satisfactory material for the purpose, there being abundance of it in the county. R. H. Brown, high way commissioner, presented a report as to the value of the road machinery owned by the county, $15,705 being the value, and recommended purchas ing additional machinery to the amount of about $13,000. At 12:30 p. rn., Thursday, found the Board and other guests at the County Training school, the particulars of which are in another column of this paper. The special committee authorized to tnake a settlement of accounts be tween the city and county made its report as follows: The original claim of the county was for $5,951.45, but the committees had discovered where several mistakes hart been made and an agreement had been made for a settlement, t lie city to pay the county the sum of $5,399.62 on or be fore Feb. 15. The committee of the council is to submit its report to the city council at its next meeting for approval. The question as to the term of office and salary of Highway Commissioner Brown was debated upon and tne opinion prevailed that the commis sioner had been elected for three years and that bis salary remain as before—sl,2oo, and necessary expenses. Commissioner Brown bad reported to the Board Wednesday, giving a list of needed machinery and the cost of same and was called upon Thursday to enlighten it further. He reported briefly that, during 1913 only $29,097 had been expended upon state roads in the county, leaving a balance of $23,874 to be added to tlie amount raised for 1914. More w ork had not been done in 1913 because of the inability to secure the necessary help. There was also some delay because of the necessity of transporting the machin ery long distances. Mr. Brown also stated that with the present equip ment of machinery very little more work could he done in 1914 than was lone in 1913, unless the supply of labor was plentiful and regular. He stated that if his report was cut in any way he would prefer that the county did not purchase any more stone crushers, but that the money be put into rollers, as these would be absolutely necessary to good progress. A committee of three was asked for to make an investigation in reference to some alleged shady dealings in con nection with the purchase of some additional lands for the asylum farm. Chairman Christie announced the ap pointment of M. W. Sweet, Herman Ramthum and Fred Thomas. The reports of the commitlee on poor, of Coroner R. M. Frawley, Dist. Atty. E. I’. Gorman and of tiie com mittee on justice and sheriff’s accounts were adopted as read. The Board adopted resolutions pro testing against tiie early date set lor the state fair, as northern counties cannot make a representative exhibit of products at that time. The usual batch of bills were acted upon and allowed. The salaries of the incoming county officers for next year were fixed as follows: County Clerk $2,200 Countv Treasurer 1.900 Sheriff 2.000 Sheriff, board of prisoners 1,800 Clerk of Court, lees and 300 District Attorney 1.800 Register of Deeds 3,800 Surveyor Fees Coroner Fees County Judge 3,000 WORKING A GAME. A resident of Brokavv, a local ad vance agent for the “Menace,” an anti-religious sheet, drew a large crowd at Elks' hall last Tuesday even ing. His main object seems to have been to excite hatred of a certain religion and to organize a society of the "Guardians of Liberty” in this city of comparatively unity and friend ship. Newspaper reporters were ex cluded from the meeting but they protested and remained. A private meeting is to be held later.--Wausau Pilot. This same “Menace” has been show n about in Marshfield, and copies of it are reported to have been circu lated most industriously in an effort to divert votes fro n Marshfield's present mayor at the recent election. However, religious beliefs cut less ice than ever in politics nowadays, t>e tftuise a prejudice against a man by reason of his religious faith shows the most extreme bigotry on the part of the one who entertains that preju dice. The Menace will wear itself out by its own vindictiveness and intolerance. —Marshfield Times. BILLIARD TOURNAMENT. A billiard tournament has been going on at the Y. M C.

Declination Causes World Win; Consternation . (Communication from Col. H. O. Tair) Editor of the Wausau Pilot: Dear Sir : The wholly unexpected and unlooked for announcement, of Col. H. O. Tair, published exclusively in last week’s issue of the Wausau Pilot and in' which that well known patriot, sol dier and statesman, unequivocally refusal to be considered as a candi date for the democratic nomination for governor or president, has created consternation not alone at Madison and Washington, but throughout the entire civilized world. In Europe the news was received witji great dis may. Emissaries of all’ the great powers of Europe hastily gathered at the home of the Kaiser to take action to forestall any possible evil conse quences which might follow this un expected act of Col. H. O. Tair. As a result of this meeting the Hague Peace conference may be abolished or transferred to some place where tiie wives of tiie representatives will have more opportunity to indulge in the tango. President Wilson w as visibly affected when the news was broken to him by long distance telephone by Secre tary Bryan, early last Sunday morn ing. anil ordering the family auto mobile :iad himsell and family driven forty miles to church, where secure from the eyes of the curious he suc ceeded in recovering his equanimity. Later In the day he absolutely re fused to lie interviewed upon this painful topic, although it is under stood that it will be one of the first things taken up for consideration by the cabinet after the return to Wash ington of President Wilson. In financial circles the announce ment was received in a manner that almost precipitated a panic. As soon as the ticker had announced the news of Hon. H. O. 'fair’s determination not to be a candidate and setting forth his reasons lor so doing, a has tily called meeting of all the great interlocking directorates of Wall street was called and steps taken for an immediate dissolution of these interlocking devices for cornering the public money. Heads of National banks, including even thegreat James B. Forgen, hastened at once to wire their acceptance of the terms of the currency bill. Comments of the Press. Editorial Writers of the State, Nation and World Deplore De termination of Col. 11. O. Tair Not to re Candidate for Public Office. It is expected tuat the following press comments will appear in the course ot the next few days, tiie same having been carefully prepared and censored (not to say inspired or writ ten) by Col. 11. O. Tair, who still outwardly maintains his position of disdain for public office : Milwaukee Gentile:—Profound re gret is manifested in certain circles over the announced determination of that brilliant statesman, Col. 11. O. Tair, not to allow his name to be used as a candidate for governor of this stace. The Colonel is one of the few remaining standard bearers of the sane and conservative element! He has always been consistently op posed to government supervision of any kind, especially of the railroads and the other public utility companies which have made this state what it is. Incidentally he is opposed to all commissions, to the reckless squan dering of the public wealtli in build ing highways; tojthe Australian bal lot; to the primary election law; to all those fool expressions of law that have wrested from the rightful rulers of the commonwealth the authority which was once theirs. If sufficient of the old guard were left to co-oper ate with the disciples of Joe Cannon to insure sufficient signatures to a nomination paper, necessary In these populistic days, we are lead to be lieve that tiie Colonel might be in duced to change his mind, lead the party to victory and redeem the state from its present condition of lament able democracy, restoring tiie right ful rulers to the places w.hich should be theirs. Rib Hill Journal:—ln these days of commissions, income tax, federal supervision of private atlairs, it is with utmost sorrow that we learn that Hon. 11. O. Tair will not be a candidate for governor. It is too bad that the conditions are such that he will not allow the use of his name. We are not personally acquainted with the gentleman, but that he is well qualified for this position and that his refusal to run is a distinct loss to the state we do not doubt, as the Colonel in a personal letter to the editor of this paper has pointed out with commendable modesty his many qualifications, if he is but one-tenth as well qualified as bethinks he is, this state is overlooking the chance of a lifetime to secure the right man for the place. We would be pleased to run the autobiography of the Colonel and retain possession of the check accompanying same, but for the reason that the federal author ities last week announced that $129, 000,000 had tieen taken from the gullible by mail frauds during the past year,' and we have no desire to become defendant in a law suit. London Times:—The deplorable con dition o ' American politics is empha sized by the refusal of Col. H. O. Tair of the city of Wisconsin, to stand for election in the United States, which country he now characterizes as be ing under the rule of a mobocracy, inimical to the best Interests of the express companies which are forbid den to cut any more melons, also the other agricultural interests connected with the Wall street harvest. Mexico Stabero:—A revolution now in progress in the state of Wausau, in the United States, will keep the administration of that meddler, Pres. Wilson, very much employed for some time, and has resulted in the calling home of Mr. Lind to take charge cf the army of the Northern Division of the United States. Press reports are to the effect that the Federal army endeavored to capture Col. Hot Air, insurgent, and imprison him for two years in the governor's mansion. Desperate fighting is re ported and the army of Col. Hot Air is said to be retreating to Canada. Madison Gormand:—The cultured people of this thriving city, capital of the state, who have been excluded from public office during the past de cade or more by that pxjpulistic mob : who are now holding all the fat offi ces will learn with sincere regret of j the determination of Col. H. O. Tair, ot Wausau, not to be their standard . bearer io the conflict which will take place this fall. AUts, the news is too true. We have the Colonel’s word OCCURRENCES OF LONG AGO. ITEMS OF NEWS BOILED DOWN FROM THeT CENTRAL THIRTY-SIX YEARS AGO TUESDAY, OCT. 22, 1878. Lawyer Eldred is mewing into his new home, corner Fifth and Warren streets. 4*On to Jenny” is now the program of the Wis. Val. R. R. / Third street is a disgrace to the City. Nothing but mud holes in wet weather. Eldred & Grace have moved their law offices into the Pilot building, corner Third and Washington streets. Through some disagreement or giv ing out of the machinery connected with the saw carriage in Stewart & Co.’s mill on Wednesday last the carriage took a running jump and landed twenty feet out in the mill pond. It was a good jump consider ing that the carriage w eighs three tons. It took the whole crew a half day to get the machine back on the track. The vote in Lincoln county to bond the county to insure the building of the Wis. Valley R. R to Jenny, was carried at the recent election. The road will now be extended to that town the coming year. Mr. and Mrs. S W. Putnam of Manchester, la., are vis: ting their daughter, Mrs. J. C. Clarke. Frank Fellows was a caller at our office today. Wm. Morgan, Wausau’s former boom master, who is farming in Waushara county, was in the city on Monday. At a meeting of the tog Driving association, John Phelps and J. C. Curran were appointed a committee to appraise the Otter Rapids and j Pelican dams with a view of turning : for it, and as he was never known to decline anything of value before, we conclude that this declination will stand. It had long been a dream of the better element of this city, socially speaking, that the governor’s office would soon be filled by one of such character and dignity as the Colonel, one of the old time aristoc racy, one who could with a glance squelch tiie obnoxious McCarthy, one who would restore to their pristine glory the representative!! of great wealth, who wou.d restora to us the conditions as they were in the good old days when members of our upper classes never knew the humiliation of paving for railroad tickets and when‘the mild Jersey found free transportation. Tiie Colonel is op posed to all kinds of uplift and every kipd of commission. It is hoped that the Colonel may be induced to change his mind. He will if the pressure be comes more oppressive. HIGH TAXES. Every town in Marathon County, as well as the city of Wausau, is com plaining of the high taxes. There are some poor people who cannot even p ; their taxes this year. So many poor people have been coming in, having purchaseu cut-over lands, that there are a surplus in the county*, no timber with which to bring in money; no work in camps or in cutting and hauling wood, they are, indeed in a bad way. The state makes strenous efforts to get these men and their families here and then diliberately taxes them out of their property. It is highway robbery! The state and county taxes are nearly as high as the town tax. One of the sources of high taxes is the new state and highway system. Two years ago Marathon County voted for it, the vote standing 36 to 23, in its favor. The same men would today vote *‘No,” almost unanimously. Last November, an attempt was made to go back to the old system but as some had gotten state aid, others also wanted to get'helped out, and the attempt failed even though it was evident to all that they were more taxes upon their people. Every chair man, now is complaining of high taxes; of the way money is being thrown away on our road work and the very little work done for the money under the new system. The present price for a mile of crushed stone road, with stone free, is $4,800. The county now owns three sets of machinery, one has stood idle half the summer. Five or six towns have no work done yet. The various chair men of the county lx>ard say much more work Could be dene if they co dd control the money. The high way commissioner will receive #1,200 this year. He should put setter men on the road, who know more about the work. The highway state tax is a burden on every town and the next thing is the income tax. The people of Marathon County should get into Jine and prepare to do some lighting next fall against high taxes. A Farmek. FORGETS WIFE. Newton Martin, a .voung- magazine agent of Wausau, was aoprehended by Sheriff Emil Knorr and Chief of Police Thos. Calder today, after the officials had received notice from Wausau authorities that a warrant charging abandonment was in their hands. Martin lias been in this city for several days and is said to have left his wife some time ago The young man stated that he had separated from his wife since April and desired a divorce, but was unable to find grounds to secure one. By abandon ng her he had hoped that he could bring matters to a culmination. He was taken to the county jail and incarceiated until evening, when Sheriff Knorr will take the prisoner Wausau Merrill Herald (Satur day.) NOTICE.

TUESDA r V, OCTOBER 29, 1878. Job Vaughan prides himself on having the sweetest little girl bahv in town. She tips the beam at 8 pounds. Capt. Parcher lias put tiie “Belle of Wausau” in running trim, put on a pile driver and is now busy repairing the booms for the spring crop of logs. 1 D. and F. McDonald will put in J,000,000 feet of logs the coming winter. The bar association of this city has organized a moot court for the pur pose of discussing the legal proposi tions that arise in practice here. John Mesher was badly hurt in the Stewart mill Thursday. He was struck by the log carriage, tearing the muscles of his leg in a frightful manner. Dr. Higgins was called to attend the man. The Central suggested that anew name be given to the street leading to the cemetery instead of the “Wau sau and South Line Road.” It thought a good name would be “Walton street,” or Plurner avenue,” or “Brewery LarfS.” Lawyer C. H. Mueller has been up in the Lake Superior region the past week. Mr. and Mrs. James MiCrossen and Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Leahy have been in Waupaca the past week. Dr. D. B. Wylie has just secured a verdict against the city for SI,BOO for injuries received by driving into ob structions in the streets. It is a large amount to pay for experience, but not too much if our authorities will profit by the lesson. Mostly in the Valley oi the Wisconsin River. The tango and the grapevine dances have just reached Marshfield. As yet the other modern dances are still tabooed. The claim is made in Chicago that Marsh i Md is the center of the “cheese trust,’ to the extent that that city is a center for a large number of factor ies and much of the summer cheese is placed in storage. Dealers there decline to express themselves on the subject. Marshfielders are, however, in the lime light. Elizabeth Henschei, aged 14 years, attempted to commit suicide at Grand Rapids a few days ago. She went to the Wisconsin river, walked out on the ice in an attempt to reach deep water, but was unsuccessful and then returned to shore. The postal savings bank system has been discontinued at the Stratford postoffice bv order of the postmaster general. Since the system was estab lished there, over a year ago, there has not been a single depositor. Sealers of weights and measures have found it necessary to caution dealers against the sale of under weight butter packages. In many cases these packages sold for one pound, only weigh fifteen ounces, and at present prices of butter the pur chaser is swindled out of about three cents on every pound he buys. Sheriff Otto of Shawano county, shot two wolves a few days ago. This gives him $40.00 bounty. The matter is being agitated in Shawano of building anew city hall and a Carnegie library. An organizat ion that embraces em ployes of the entire Soo system has been formed for the purpose of pro moting the “Safety First” movement. A gang of track layers left Merrill Thursday to lay new rails on the C. M.&St. P. railway from Gilbert to Tomahawk. And now a Stevens Pointer saw a robin Thursday. The Journal com ments, “that unless he shows further symptoms, D? authorities will not institute pitceed ngs.” Myron Clifford of Stevens Point on Thursday afternoon was found guilty of assault only. He vas sentenced to the county jail, at hard labor, for the term of three months. Wisconsin will spend $4,000,000 for state roads in 1914—the state to pay one-third. Anew law went into effect Jan. Ist of this year and that was that live poultry shipped in this state must be placed in boxes or crates with the tops covered by a screen, in order to protect the fowls from having their eeads cut off by careless expressmen. Bounties on two wild cats, a wolf and a coyote were applied for at the office of the county clerk of Langlade county Thursday. Counties pay a bounty of $lO a head for and the state the same for wolves and coyotes. This stimulates gunners.to kill them. The Colby Lumber Cos., purchased the Romeo saw mill and the machin ery is being prepared for shipment to this city, and will be placed in the new building that has been erected on the site of the one recently burned, They will be in readiness for sawing as soon as a sufficient stock of logs are in the yard Colby Phonograph. The discontinuance of the port office at Harshaw. which was to have be come effective December 31st, 1913. has been rescinded. The office, the re fore. will be continued in operation as heretofore. Friday a solid train of logs, hard wood and hemlock, moved southward from this city. The train was an ex tra and was made up of thirty cars. This is one of the first such shipments to be made beyond this city. Practi cally all this consignment was intended for Wausau and Grand Rapids Merrill Herald. The Stevens Point Journal pub lishes the fact, that 50 years ago. Jan. 1, 18*>4, Wisconsin was swept by the coldest wave that ever visited this region. The thermometer was 50 de grees beiow :w;ro. The wind biew a fale, the air was full of drifting snow. fanv froze to death ai! over the northwest that day. All old settlers will recall the cold New Year’s and shiver at the iiiemory.

COURT SYSTEM. The circuit judges of Wisconsin, or many of them, met in Madison the past week, to confer with the com mittee of lawyers, appointed by ihe legislature to investigate court sys tem in Wisconsin. The double trial system in probate matters, it was de cided, was a hindrance to the court and should be abolished. It was the concensus of opinion that there should be either an appeal from Ihe county court to the supreme court, or when an issue is joined in probate court the matter should be certified to the circuit court. There was considerable discussion over the proposed abolish ment of the office or justice of the peace, but nodetinitedecision reached. The committee will continue in its' investigations ami submit plans as it appears best suited to the needs of the state, and report at the next legislature. An Ideal Woman's Laxative.
