for the position. Mr. Lange has
done more real hard work for the
democratic parjy than any man in
Wisconsin. He has made great sac
rifices, running for secretary of state

defeat awaited him. If he is turned
down by the powers-that-be, then,
surely, they have no just apprecia

from the cabinet at this decisive j
moment when United States diplo
matists are endeavoring in every pos
sible way to prevent our prosperous
country from being plunged into war,
seemed almost a catastrophy. During
the many short periods that Bryan
was obliged to be absent from Wash
ington, Robert Lansing, one of the
most able lawyers in the United
States and one who has been of great,
almost inestimable aid to our weight
ed President, acted in his stead, show
ing much ability. Friday the twenty
fifth, brought out the offiicial an
nouncement that Robert Lansing had
accepted the post of permanent secre
tary of state. Mr. Lansing became
first connected with the present ad
ministration following the retire
ment of Dr. John Basett Moore about
April 1, 1914. Sec. Lansing then be
came counsellor of the state depart
ment. Mr. Lansing was born at
Watertown, N. Y., Oct. 17, 1864,
graduated from Amherst college with
the class of ’B6 and practiced law with
a cousin in his home town until 1907.
In 1890 he married the daughter of
Gen. Foster, secretary of state at that
time, who later appointed him associ
ate council for the United States in
the Behring Sea arbitration. At one
time Mr. Lansing was associated with
As an official of state, Mr. Lansing
has developed a direct, decisive
manner of dealing with public ques
tions. Night and day for some time
this man has been at the president’s
call to render advice and take the
direction of the great questions aris
ing before the state department every
hour. We confidently expect that
Mr. Lansing will make one of the
most able and thorough men that has
occupied the seat of secretary of state.
President Wilson’s choice of Lansing
as a successor to W. J. Bryan, may
well be approved by every American
who desire the present difficulties to
be settled peaceably.
To the surprise of everyone, Jenkin
Lloyd Jones, 91 years old, veteran

and pastor of All Souls church in
Chicago and director of the Abraham

quite natural that he should marry

commencement in September will be

The new church is practically com

Summer Meeting of the Central Wis
consin Press Association Held in
Last Friday was the occasion of the
annual summer social meeting of the
Central Wisconsin Press association,
the members of which were enter
tained by the Marathon County Press
association, the Wausau Advance
ment association and the citizens of
this city, generally. The day proved
a most beautiful one, not too warm
nor too cold. It was noticeable that
the banks of the city unfurled the
national colors from their various
flag staffs in honor of the editors.
There were upwards of tnirty repre
sentatives of the press present, com
ing from Clark, Wood, Lincoln, Sha
wano, Portage, Langlade, Taylor and
Marathon, besides the following gen
tlemen from outside of the district:
C. A. Booth, of the Madison Demo
crat: A. M. Smith, of the Western
Newspaper Union, Milwaukee; Prot.
W. G. Bleyer, of the School of Journ
alism, Madison, and Burt Williams,
of Ashland, now internal revenue col
lector, with headquarters in Madison.
Many of the editors were accompanied
by their wives and altogether the del
egation of visitors numbered about
sixty. The first session of the associ
ation was held in the city hall at 11:30
o’clock, where they were welcomed
by Mayor John Ringle, who said
“It is my pleasant task to extend
to you on behalf of the people of
Wausau a cordial welcome to our
city. We admit that it is a source of
pride for our city to receive visits
from neighbors and friends, and es
pecially from representatives of the
press, to whom should be accorded
the major share of credit for labor
leading to the development of this
God-favored locality for human abode.
To that extent, at least, we are inter
ested in your welfare and success.
“The people of Wausau are loyal to
their home city, and endeavor to pro
vide the things necessary to make life
worth living. They are also loyal to
the fact that central and northern
Wisconsin is an ideal location for
homes and comfort. We, therefore,
rejoice in the prosperity of sister
cities and communities. We wish
you Godspeed in your work, and
should it be as is sometimes claimed,
that your recompense in this world is
not over-abundant, you still have the
satisfaction of having made many
new blades of grass grow where none
grew before, and being included
among the benefactors of mankind.”
L. Williamson, of Neillsville, presi
dent of the association, replied in
happy vein, paying a high tribute to
Wausau and citizens. The associa
tion was very fortunate in securing
Burt Williams to address its mem
bers at this meeting, lie had made a
date to speak at the Rotary club din
ner on the previous evening and was
induced to stay over, and his address
was certainly a feature of the day’s
program. He paid a high compli
ment to the progressiveness of Wau
sau and its people; went into details
concerning matters of vast import
ance to the central section of our
state. He told of the vast growth of
the dairy interests and especially of
the Ashland plan to supply farmers
with pure bred cows; of the great
agricultural possibilities, and having
long been connected with the news
paper business he was able to give
much valuable advice and strongly
counselled co-operation. His address
was a very able one and one which
would prove an inspiration and incen
tive for greater work were it pub
lished and distributed in every com
munity in northern Wisconsin. Mr.
Williams’ effort was greatly appre-
dated by those present.
As arrangements had been made to
entertain the members of the associa
tion and their wives at the Wausau
club for luncheon, an adjournment
was taken to that place, and where
between sixty and seventy were served
a most delightful repast. The associ
ation resumed its business session in
the sancing hall of the club. E.
Tricky, hf Vesper, was on the pro
gram for a paper on “Advertising,
Cost of Production to Publisher’s and
Selling Price to Customer.” As the
gentleman, at the last moment, on
account of illness found that he could
not he present, he forwarded his paper,
which was read by Secretary B. E.
Walters, of Mosinee. A discussion
followed in which Prof. Bleyer gave
much valuable information and the
result was that it was voted that the
chair appoint a committee to work
out a table of prices for advertising
and job work, so that there might be
uniformity in the district. The mem
bers of this committee will be known
later. A paper on the death of E. D.
Glennon, a member, of the association,
prepared by T. L. McGlachlin, of
the Stevens Point Journal and A. L.
Fontaine, of the Grand Rapids Re
porter, and forwarded, was read by
E. B. Thayer.
The following vote of thanks was
Resolved, that a vote of thanks he
and is hereby extended to the business
men of the city of Wausau, and to
the members of the Marathon County
Press association for the courtesies
extended and the hospitality shown
to the Central Wisconsin Press associ
ation, and in appreciation of the very
agreeable and social manner in which
the arrangements for this second an
nual meeting were made and carried
The visitors were then taken on a
ride in automobiles furnished by our
citizens, in charge of the Wausau Ad
vancement association, personally
conducted by W. R. Chellis, its popu
lar secretary. The ride was about the
city out through the towns of Maine,
Berlin, Rib Falls, Marathon and
Stettin, passing through the villages
of Little Chicago, and Marathon and
from the latter village returned to
Wausau. The ride was a little
longer than laid out on account of
some of the roads being closed. This
made it necessary to go over some of
the roads which were not as good.
Each driver was given an itinery of
the route and it was expected tiiat
the autos would he separated so as
not to catch the dust, hut instead
every driver made up his mind tiiat
lie would keep up with the procession
and the result was that a very dusty
crowd reached the pavilion. Mayor
Ringle, W. R. Chellis, Nathan Heine
maun and A. H. Zimmerman, made
the rounds with the editors.
From Wausau the editors and their
ladies were taken to the Rothschild
pavilion, svhere an excelent dinner
was served in the pavilion dining
room. This was follow ed by an after
dinner program. E: B. Thayer presid
ing. Prof. Bleyer was introduced and
spoke at length on “Results of a Sur
vey of Weekly Newspaper Publishing
in Wisconsin.” This was full of val
uable information to the editors.
This was followed by an excellent ad- i
dress by G. E. Crothers, of Neillsville.
Senator A. L kreutzer was to have
made an address but was not able to
be present. Among those who made
si 10 rt addresses were J. L. Sturtevant,
C. A. Booth, R. E. Walters, M. C. !
Ewing, Frank Lueschen, R. H.
Johnson, L. Williamson, Mrs. L. E.
Thayer of Everett, Wash., A. 11.
Zimmermann. and H. G. Flieth.
At about y o’clock the summer
session of the association came to
a Close, liaving been a most successful,
pleasant social event.
Daring the evening president Wil
liamson announced tiie appointment
of the following persons as members
of the executive committee for the
ensiling year: W. A. Drumb, Wood:

meetings and at the dinner.
OUR PECULIAR WAY
Just think of it, our macadam
streets are topped with crushed rock
liner than sand. This is washed, in
time into the catch basins, dug up
thrown onto wagons and carted away,
and then more crushed rock is placed
on top and again the same procedure
gone through with. Pretty expensive,
eh? Why not start with some kind of
a pavement which will evade this and
be cheaper in the end.
