The platform of the Wilson Democracy stands squarely
for relief from the almost unbearable conditions at Madison
and its slogan is: “Retrenchment, economy, efficiency—
without reaction.” Aylward not only says there shall he
no state tax, but he shows how he proposes to economize.
The people will demand also that the nominee for
Governor of Wisconsin he in full accord with President
Wilson and his policies. The President has a right to
expect that the democratic candidate for Governor of this
state be a man in whom he has confidence and with whom
he can work in perfect party harmony. We have just such
a man in John A. Aylward. He was closely identified with
the Wilson campaign two years ago, and he has the full
confidence of the President. The democrats of Wisconsin
cannot afford to nominate a man for the high office of Gov
ernor whose loyalty to the President and to the party can
be questioned. v
Rev. and Mrs. Richard Evans are
to arrive in the city from Europe j
most any day this week, judging;
from the heavy swarm of refugees
bound home from that country to
this during the past several days. All
friends will be pleased to welcome
their safe return.

gov. McGovern.
Last Tuesday evening, Gov. Francis
McGovern discussed the issues of tlte
day at the Grand Opera house. The
governor is - candidate for the re
publican senatorial nomination. He
was not greeted by a very large aud
ience. but those who were present
gave his address close attention, lie
wras introduced by A. W. Prehn and
1 his talk was principally in defending
bis administrations against the hot
shot being tired into them by the tax
payers. He was very emphatic that
his administrations had not been ex
travagant, that they had not increased
the taxes. He tried to show tire
causes which had brought about the ;
high taxes but as to that theargu-j
medits were not convincing*, the facts |
■ remain that enormous state taxes |
i have had to be paid under McGovern. J
The governor is to be congratulated |
| over the trouncing lie gave Senator;
LaKollette at Maniwa last Monday. 1
•His speech there was in answer to
i statements made against him by the
senator. Before reaching Wausa aon
Tuesday he had made ten speeches, i
first at Clintonville, then Marion.

Marathon County** Big / tnual Fair—
Every Da,’ Will Bea
Good One.
When the Pilot goes to press Tues
day next, Marathon county’s big an
ual exposition gates whl be open
and the management ready for a
big crowd during the wee* and every
body will be well taken care of. Are
you ready for a good time V If so the
association officers are ready lor you.

The Fair is an institution. It is a
measure of the community. It is
not promoted as a money proposition.
Its purpose is to provide a place
where the people may meet and ex
change views, show what they have
accomplished, and study improved
methods. Agriculture and the trades
are continually advancing, customs
are changing and new ideas are being
brought forward. Fair time is a time
we all look forward to with a certain
degree of pleasure and this year it is
to be more superior than ever before
in the history of the association, for
the reason that ‘there will be more
and larger premiums, bigger displays
in every department, more live stock
entries, lietter special features and a
better time in general.
Among the special features will be
a splendid Industrial Parade, Lionel
Legare’s Spiral act, the Boris Fndkin
troupe, Hans Reland and his trained
pigs and a speed program, in which
some of the fastest horses on the turf
will take part, the management of
the latter having given this depart
ment extra attention by hanging up
liberal purses for thoee contests
and which are to be conducted strictly
as usual, on the square and for your
amusement and gratitication.
Remember that the fair is for the
benetit of ail and should be supported
by ail. Don’t miss it—you’ll be sorry
if you do. Bring your wife, bring
tiie children, bring your best girl and
bring your grandma and grandpa and
all will enjoy it we can assure you. :
But two weeks are left before the
public schools of this citj open—an
other year of two semesters and every
attendant;, grade or high school, is be
ginning to prepare for it. In the
high school as soon as the classes are
running regularly and smoothly,
practice for the foot ball eleven will
begin. By the splendid showing of
the basket ball teams of the past Sev
eral years and track teams also, great
interest has been created among the
scholars in athletics. This year the
hoys are going out for big things in
foot bail so we are told. The coach
will be Alvin Sa ldhergof the (Univer
sity of Wisconsin who made such a
tine player last year and was captain
of the university eleven. Last year
the players were not satisfied with
having games with only Grand Rapids,
Stevens Point, and other cities, but
felt that some games with Oshkosh,
Appleton or Green Bay ought to be
arranged. Let’s hope that; that this
can be done the coming fall.

Had of Catholic Church Passes Away
With a Prayer on His Lips—
Twelve Years in Service
Giuseppe Sarto. Pope Pius X., died
in Rome at twenty minutes past 1
o’clock Thursday, August 20th. at the
age of 80 years. He had reigned as
pope for eleven years. His last
words imparted a blessing to those
who stood at his bedside, and among
his last earthly thoughts was and" sot
row over the present war in Buoy*.
His last words were the famous
motto of his reign;.

On Thursday the body of the late
pontiff was embalmed. The laying-in
state will take place in the throne
rosm of the Vatican where many thou
sands of persons were admitted to his
presence, during his lifetime.
The question, of a conclave to elect
his successor is being discussed. It
probably will take place Sept. 3.
The deatli of the pontiff in the
eightieth year of his life and the
twelfth year of his pontificate, while
long anticipated because of ailments
incident to advanced age, came as a
shock even to those near him. For
several days lie had been suffering
from gouty catarrh, but on Tuescmy
his physicians declared that the
trouble was of no great importance,
and Wednesday reasuring reports con
cerning the patient were current.
The change came suddenly during
the forenoon Thursday and early in
the afternoon those in attendance an
nounced ttiat deatli was imminent.
Similar attacks had been resisted
with the aid of the pope’s will power.

At the request of President Wilson,
Secretary Bryan on Thursdy sent the
following telegram to the Vatican:
“The president desires me to express
his sense of the gieat loss which the
Christian world has sustained in the
deatli of his holiness Pius X. By his
pure and gentle, his unaffected piety,
and iiis broad and thoughtful s- oa-
Lhy with his fellow men lie ai <ied
his exalted station and attracted to
himself the affectionate regard of all
who felt his worldwide influence.”
“Secretary Williams announces that
Mark Beilis of W&csarrhas consented
to start the Marsh field races next
week. Mr. Beln? has a state-wide
reputation as a starter and his pres
ence in the stand will insure justice
to tiie horse-men and satisfaction to
the spectators. Two years ago Mr.
Beilis started the races here and the
year previous lie olficated at the staet

What the Proposed Packing Plant Will Do
For Wausau.
The preliminary arrangements for
the building of a co-operative pack
ing plant for our city have been com
pleted and the field forces will soon
begin the work of selling stock There
will be a house to house canvass
made, as it is the intention to in :er
etit all the farmers in Marathon
and surrounding counties, and giving
all an opportunity to purchsse stock
and become active participants in an
enterprise that promises to tlo more
for the development of Marathon
county, and particularly its agricul
tural interests, than anything else
ever undertaken in this city.
The benefits of a packing plant to
tiie farmer in general will be a ready
market for tlieir livestock at all
times, irrespective as to its condition
at the time of sale, for if it should
not prove fit for meat when delivered
at; the plant, it will be taken to feed
ing farms in this vicinity where it is
fed until tit for killing.
A packing plant located near the
place of production offers many id
vantages. in the first place the own
er can deliver direct to the plant and
receive a price based on the Chicago
market, less the cost of freight charges.
There will be no middle man or
dealer to pay- no charges for reeding
—no expense connected with holding
of the stock in yards waiting for a
buyer, apd no commission for agents
making the sale.
The stockholders in the plant will
receive an annual dividend on all the
stock they own, and in addition, “a
dividend on all sales made to the
packing plant during the year.”
Stock will be bought from anyone,
no matter whether a stockholder or
not, but non stockholders will not
share in tiie profits in any way, ex
cept by the. higher prices paid for
their animals. The plant will be ar
ranged for the killing of cattle, hogs
and sheep. All the by-products will
be utilized, and there will be settling
tanks for all the waste to be manu
facturer' into fertilizer.
Thus tiie direct benefit to the farm
er— the indirect benefit will be that
this direct market will result in larger
herds of cattle kept to consume tiie
products of the farm, that are now
shipped out in bales, and the utilizing
of the greater amounts of manure re
sulting from the feeding. With the
present scarcity of beef cattle, it be
comes of great value to stimulate
the growing of more cattle and better
feeding, in order to produce a better
Too much immature stock is mar-
Kc’.ed at the present time to be
shipped out jf the state to feeding
far.ns where tiie feeder gains all the
advantages that should and will go to
the grower in this community with
the advent of better markets, with
better prices, and the profits of the
middle men cut out.
Benefits to the consumers will he
in tiie direction of cheaper meats as
tiie freight on both the animals and
the finished products will be saved.
In general the prices of meats is on
the increase, due without doubt, to
the diminished production, and we
may look for a steady advance until
such time as the supply will reach
nearer the normal demand, but at all
times the establishing of the packing
plant will always enable our citizens
to purchase their meats below the
prices charged by the larger concerns.
For our local butchers—those who
prefer to purchase their own animals
and kill them—there will be accom
modations for tiie killing at actual
cost so that they will not be under
the necessity of operating a slaugh
terhouse of their own, and as all the
products of the packing plant will be
inspected by men appointed for that
purpose by the National Government,
both the retailer and the consumer
will always be assured of wholesome,
healthy meats. Furthermore, cities
of the size of Wausau are not in the
class that receive tiie best of the
packing house products, but witli this
condition changed to local institu
tion, the quality of meats offered to
the people of our city will be far
and away oetter than at present.
The benefits the city itself will de

TUESDAY, JAN. 27, 1880.
The Pilot is authority for the
! statement tbit St. John’s congrega-
I Lion is about to build a rectory.
A race at the ice skating rink on Sat
! urday for a purse of 116 called a
i big crowd. Dee Mitchell, Mark Beilis
and; Dave Sarvis were the contest
ants and after going around the rink
80 times, Beilis came out ahead and
Sarvis second.
The practice of putting in chairs
rive from the establishing of this en
terprise are obvious. Wausau is.rap
idly becomingamanufacturing center
and any addition to its manufactur
ing industries means the employment
of more labor. With i. complement
of at least 100 laborers, many of them
receiving high wages, the pay roll
will amount to a good figure, all of
which will go to enrich the field of
labor. Our merchants will profit by
increased trade, not only from this
source, but because farmers within a
radius of twenty miles or more who
now ship from nearby stations, will
bring their stock to this city, and
consequently, the influx of trade will
be increased considerabl}, as likewise
from those that come to buy the pro
ducts of the plant. Within a very
short time we will daily see people on
our street who probably never visited
us before, and they will all have the
price of tlieir sales willi which to
make purchases of goods from he
merchants. Under these circum
stances the enterprise should not o.ily
have the full merit of the most en
thusiastic support of the merchants,
hut they should tie realy to further
give it their support by the purchase
of stock aifd aid in its establishment
as participating stockholders.
As an illustration of what a plant
of this character can accomplish,
reference need only to be made to
the cooperative parking plant at La
crosse, the only cne of ils kind at
the present time, and in operation
since last June, where the support
given has been of such a character as
to lead to tiie killing at present of
about 300 bogs, 50 to 75 head of cattle,
100 sheep and 100 calves per week,
without experiencing any difficulty in
disposing of tiie product. All of this
stock comes from within a radius of
about fifty miles from LaCrosse, the
greater part being delivered by the
growers direct, while the products
are sold to dealers living within a
radius of 150 miles from the city.
On all tiie stock thus delivered by
the growers, expenses such as men
tioned in this article and comprising
dealers, commission men, freight
charges, yardage end feeding are
avoided, and the prices paid to
the growers include all these items,
certainly a great gain to the farmer
in tiie larger amount of money re
Tiie co-operative law of our state
limits the amount of stock any one
person may carry to ten shares, of a
total value of SIOOO.OO, the dividend
that can be paid on the alxive to 0 per
cent, yet It aids the stockholder by.
making this stock non-assessable.
* It must not be forgotten that stock
feeding is a growing industry and is
highly developed in tiie vicinity of
the large packing plants where land
is worth $200.00 per acre, and exper
ienced farmers and feeders will wel
come this or““‘ r tunity of coming into
this co - where more natural for
age fc.ows than ajiywhere else, and
take advantage of the cut over, medi
um priced lands to develop this in
dustry, and our home farmers will
benefit by these lessons and keep and
prepare stock properly for market.
The general benefits accruing to
our citizens by reduced meat prices
and the increase of business to all our
merchants, and better prices to farm
ers, should bean incentive for all to
join in a unified slogan reading,

To the Voters of Marathon Countg:
Kindly permit me to announce my candidacy for the nomination of
District Attorney on the Democratic Ticket, at the Primaries.
In announcing myself again this year for this office I feel I am justi
fied in asking for your support. You wiil remember I was nominated for
District Attorney over two opponents at the primaries two years ago,
receiving nearly as many votes as the combined vote of both, and was
defeated at the election by a very small margin. Having spent con
siderable time and effort in the campaign of 1912 and the result being so
close, I feel lam justly entitled to another nomination. Therefore, may
I ask you to give me your support at the primaries on September First ?
