Orders have n ° "received from Washington indicating that a call may ,een i time and that all units of the gudrd must ie issued ai an.' c put in immediate readiness to mobilize. mobilization will undoubtedly take place at Camp >, las and the move to have the guard ready is based on iat supposition. V"! Gen. Holway has wired captains of all the Wiscon r companies to have their men ready to a call on a , r ’ no tice. He considers the mobilization order v it hie and believes it may come in the immediate future. (k-1. Holway believes the Wisconsin guard is in shape , all Suer the call as quickly and in as good order as that of in state in the union, and he is confident the Wisconsin untingent can prove itself as efficient as any unit of this ranch of the service. The Wisconsin soldiers in all de artments made a splendid showing on the Mexican border, ein„r highly complimented by high officers of the regular my on their efficiency. The Wisconsin guard is one of the most efficient and best quipped in the country, and recognized as such by regular rmy officers. The mobilization of the Wisconsin guard can be accom lished quickly and with military exactness. All of the Wisconsin companies can be summoned to the respective mories and be ready to entrain within ?wenty-four hours. Milwaukee supply companies as well as supply companies 1 the state will perhaps be the first to move. - These com mies will be sent first to the mobilization point to prepare >r the arrival of the troops. Instructions were received in Wausau yesterday noon, rum Adjutant CJen. Holway to Capt. Lucas, to have 'ompanv G ready at a moment’s notice to respond to a call hich might come in at any moment. The whistle at irtiY Factory gave notice at noon to the guards that they ere wanted at the Armory, and in less than an hour alb ere there attired in their uniforms.

It is that - s ki!, that extra desire to meet the strictest - dements that make the Tailor Made Suits the Leak Label so much in demand by f : ishi °nable and keen headed business men - tnmunity. They are delighted with the .. u ‘ e nce at which they can obtain that They are pleased with the style, ' ' cc 1 P* ar> d the distinctiveness of suits made by louisTeak -hi^NOTONjst. The Tailor who have the opportunity, should fail to see this evening of beautiful pic tures on May Ist. SMALL-POX t Wausau has a case of small-pox and may have others as there has been some exposure which'was unavoidable. A man by the name of Robert Eisner, of Rib Falls, who had been at the American hotel, was ill and went to the office of Dr. Thielke for treatment. It was pronounced a case of small pox. Owing to the fact that there was no available place to isolate the pa tient and being without means, he was sent to the county hospital. He was placed in the isolation ward in charge of a nurse, but it was done under pro test, as the place .for him was the pest house. Dr. Thielke stated that the pest house w as not vacant and was not fit for patients even if it was. The man is being taken care of at the hos pital, but what would have been the result if there had been no vacant rooms at the hospital? Some sort of an isolation hospital should be pro vided at once for the city’s use. It would not be surprising at all if other cases followed, but prompt measures have been taken to have the places fumigated where the man was known to have entered. Wausau is just as liable as other cities to have contagious diseases and' an isolation hospital should be provided. tPaitsaii JlHs pilot CAVALRY TROOP FORMED AT MERRILL Last Friday was a history making epoch in Merrill. It was the occasion of the organization of a cavalry troop of 100 men. A banquet was given at the Grand opera house in the evening at which 175 were present. The ladies of Scott Memorial church furnished and served an excellent dinner for the members of the troop present and the assembled citizens and guests. The troop is the first one organized under the new law. A program followed, at which A. H. Smith presided as toastmaster, who, after giving a brief resume of the work of organization, introduced General King, who made the principal address of the evening. A synopsis as follows is taken from the Merrill Herald, viz.: “The speaker held his audience for an hour, telling them in no uncertain language that this country, if it is to be saved for our children and our children’s children, that we MUST PREPARE and that he felt that Mer rill should be doubly proud of her sons who had so soon answered their country’s call, ready, if need be, to shed their blood in defense of her honor. The general put the vigor and vim into his talk that easily denies the seventy-three years that he con fesses to. His speech was a revelation to many who have been secure in the faith that a citizen soldiery is an ade quate defense for this country. He re ferred to the remark of the “Iron Chancellor” of Germany, Prince Bis marck, “God protects the poor and the United States.” That statement he repeated with all due reverence, for it was and is true. We pride ourselves on our isolation when as a matter of fact the oceans, instead of being a protection, are rather a path to our shores, over which any belligerent na tion might easily send an army of a million trained men in a month’s time and force us in less time than we could mobilize half that number to pay them a ransom of ten billions or more. Not a pleasant prospect, and yet possible. Thinking men and women are afraid, for, as has been said, if the present war keeps on another year, the United States will have all the gold in the world and Europe all the guns, and some of thpse guns might come back for that gold. Outside of France, the United States has, because of Its policy, al lienated the friendship of practically every European nation of any' conse quence with the possible exception of Fiance. Likewise, we have told that proud and growing nation, ‘the Eng land of the Pacific,” that, her people cannot enjoy the privileges we readily grant to nearly every other nation un der the sun. We have made enemies; let us not forget that we MUST PRE PARE. The speaker closed with a few words of advice to the troopers and was accorded a long round of applause much of which had punctuated his talk.” Other talks were made by Major McCoy of Sparta, and prominent citi zens of Merrill. It was expected that Adjutant Gen. Orlando Hohvay would be present,- but he was unable to at tend. STEVENS POINT AVILL HAVE FINE DEPOT AND DEPOT GROUNDS The Soo depot at Stevens Point, which burned a short time ago, is to be supplanted by anew one of vastly better proportions and up-to-date in every respect and will be surrounded by a handsome park, Which is due to Stevens Point’s wide awake mayor, Dr. F. O. Walters. At first it was the intention of the Soo road to build a suitable depot on the old grounds, but with the matter properly set before the people by live Wires, several blocks of land will be purchased and added to the present depot grounds, ajl through the co-operation of the people with the mayor and city coun cil and this showing of public spirit, lias spurred on the officials of the road to give the city a depot of which it may well be proud. It was argued that the first impressions of a city were by far the best, and rightly, too. The following petition, which recited reasons for the park, was generally signed: “That our depot and its surround ings are and will always continue to be the front door of the city and should be made attractive in appear- ance. “That the travel through our city to the great northwest is increasing and will continue to increase, and in creasing numbers of persons look ing for new homes and business lo cations will go through our city. “That one or more of the new trunk line highways to be built will. pass through this section of the city and first impressions of the city to trav elers thereon will be created by the depot and its surroundings. “That the proposed acquisition and improvement of this property will in crease real estate values in the city generally to an extent in excess of the cost of the property.” The new round house which will be erected will have room enough for 20 engines. The Pilot was. and is still of the opinion, that if the people of Stevens Point will give Mayor Walters half a chance he will do great things. RUNAWAY A delivery team, owned by John Mohelnitzky. while the driver was making a delivery Friday, became frightened and ran away and ran into Winkelman's delivery auto, on the cor ner of Fifth and Franklin streets. In the mix-up the auto was badly wrecked and the team slightly cut and bruised. The driver of the car jumped before the impact and saved himself from probable death or painful injuries. It was a lucky escape from more serious results. ROTARY CLUB Next Thursday evening A. R. Hall, of the Wisconsin University Extension Division, will lecture on ‘Life's Play ground,” before the Rotary Club, at Cyrus Yawkey hall. WAIJSAIJ, WIS.. TIiESPAY, MARCH 27, 1917. COL. H. 0. TAIR IS HOME AGAIN Great Patriot and Statesman Arrives From the State Capitol Saturday Night and is Interviewed—Stands Ready to Save the Nation. (Written by Col. H. O. Tair.) Standing as we do on the threshold of a war which threatens to devastate our beloved country, citizens of Wau sau breathed a sigh of relief, Satur day night, when they learned that Col. H. O. Tair, that renowned states man, diplomat ?■ 1 patriot, had again returned to our city and was here to guide, counsel and direct the thought of this particular community, the state or the nation, as the case might require. There were not many at the depot to welcome the colonel home, owing to the fact that his arrival was wholly unxepected, both by the citizens of Wausau and himself. It was not to be rid of the multi farious duties which devolved upon him that the colonel has abandoned the state capital, but rather because the high cost of living is less marked here than in the home of the state solons, and the colonel was summarily divorced from the pay roll late Friday evening by the hot-headdd and arro gant chief executive, with whom he had a rather stormy interview. “I have no desire to pose as a mar tyr,” said the colonel as he benevo lently accorded the reporter of the Pilot an interview a few minutes af ter his arrival in the city, “but the fact of the matter is that my patriot ism was put to such a test that I could no longer hear the indignities that were being heaped upon me and my country by the chief executive.” “I had been delivering an address to a gathering of Americans in*the corridor of the capitoi, and as I spoke my patriotism began to seethe and boil, and I said things which would not be approved by the senior senator, William Jennings Bryan or the Kaiser. Forgetful of where I stood, and that I was in Madison, I made a strong plea for national honor, for the rights of Americans to travel the high seas and to express their honest convictions anywhere in the United States, or Mil waukee or Madison. “I was hastily summoned to the presence of the chief, he who usurps the place that should have been mine, and who with a wave of his hand, said, “Consider yourself bounced. Your annexation to the pay roll ceases right here and now, colonel.” “Upon what grounds am I, who have consecrated my best energies, my wealth of experience, my recognized patriotism, to be divorced from the emoluments which should be mine un til the end of the session?” I asked him. “Traitor,” said he, “I would have you know that I passed down the cor* ridor and heard your seditious utter ances against our good Kaiser W’il helm. You are guilty of lese-majesty. Well you know that our grievance against Germany rests entirely upon her interference with our commerce, while in the outer hall, in a loud tone of voice which may be heard as far as Berlin, thou didst proclaim in uni son with that arch knave, Wilson, that our grievance rested upon Germany’s willful and deliberate assassination of American men, women and children.” “Your honor.” I replied, “the snow still lies deep upon the ground in my northern home; wood is $8 per cord, and I am unprepared for this sudden separation from the pay roll, and if you will reconsider your rash utter ance, I will still abide with you and will promise to say nothing more which may be offensive to the good W’ilhelm, for whom you entertain so warm a re gard.” “Nix on that stuff.” he replied, at the same time pointing to the door. “When I fully realized that T must go, I became reckless and Ijc forth a burst of patriotic oratory that will linger in the halls of the state ca >itol for months, and which, had the as sembly been in session, might have re sulted in my impeachment for treason against the kaiser. While I was at it, I let forth a flood of pent up in dignities and reminded the governor that I was the sole and original dis coverer of high taxes upon which he* was carried into office, that I was the original discoverer of the fact that they were still higher during his ad ministration than when I made the original discovery, that they would be higher next year, and I would dis cover that also and defeat him at the polls, that while I had supported him last year in the campaign as a matter of party regularity. I would not again stultify myself. ‘•Well,” he replied, ‘‘go back home and muck-rake me like you have been doing. the senior senator for years. Bob has grown fat on that and got votes to burn, right up in your own community, and I guess if you get after me in the same manner, I will make a better showing at the polls than I did last time.” Our excited conversation appeared to attract considerable attention, for the office rapidly began filling up with spectators upon whose faces were looks of horror, which were more deeply accentuated when he pointed his finge’ at me and in tones of scorn said, "Rous mit him. He is a t. aitor. He is a supporter of the president, and I verily believe voted for that arch enemy of America and Germany, that tool of the munition manufacturers and Wall street." “Your honor,” I handed back to him, “you will remember that you too have some responsibility for the elec tion of Wilson. Four years ago, know ing that Taft was out of the race, and fearing the election of Teddy, you counselled me and others to cast our jvstea for the man you now revile,” OCCURRENCES OF LONG AGO ITEMS OF NEWS BOILED DOWN FROM THE WAUSAU PILOT THIRTY-TWO YEARS AGO Monday, August 20, 1883 Dick Clark and Will Gilbert came home from Lake Superior last Wed nesday. Misses Clara and Lute Judson start ed today for Portage City to visit their sister, Mrs. L. W. Davis. J. R. Bruneau was at Stevens Point and Plover on business during the fore part of the past week. Geo. Shaughnessy left for his home in Beaver Dam lasr Tuesday, after a stay of several weeks in our midst. R. P. Manson and W. B. Scholfield have been absent the past week look ing over their pine lands on Pine river. A lawn mower was run over the county square last Saturday for the first time. The grounds are in good condition. The residence of Will LaSelle, which I is in process of erection on the hill, east, when finished will be credit to Will’s architectural ability. Last week thirty-five tons of hay were cut off the meadow of B. Single, near Rib Mills, hauled two miles and put under cover without receiving a wetting. Geo. Lindsey, who owns a harness and saddle establishment on Washing ton street, has purchased a building of Chas. Woesner, on Washington, street, opposite Agricultural hall, but here the*policeman prevailed and I was dragged from the room. At this point the great philosopher, statesman, diplomat and patriot, who has seen fit to honor our city by mak ing it his home, wiped the perspira tion from his brow and with anew light of resolve in his masterful eye said: “Why inflict these harrowing details upon the public? Merely that they may know the kind of men in charge of our state affairs, that they may remedy the evil at the next election. I cannot promise at this time that I will be their standard bearer, but I will as sist. “My services may be of greater value to the nation as a whole. Again I will volunteer my services to the ad ministration at Washington. Modesty will not deter me. Have you ever noticed that the greatest defect in the American plan of government is the lack of any provision wherehy the best men of the country can he called to the front when their services are needed? To remedy this defect I now and here offer my services, and shatter its hide-bound rules and traditions.” “The time for diplomacy has passed. Lansing is probably good enough for that position now. Our real weakness is in the navy. The head of that department is so notor iously unfit for the job that his name is a byword throughout the country. In offering to take this position at this critical time I feel that my experience and ability would constitute a pillar of security upon which the country could rest satisfied, for Lassure’ you that my superior qualifications are recognized throughout the civilized world, that my energy, enthusiasm and patriotism would alone be worth a navy of a mil lion men, while my vigor and dash, my knowledge of statecraft, would com- themselves to all depart ments with which I came in contact, heal all breaches, inspire confidence and lead this country to that point of eminence where it might confident ly challenge the whole world.” (Editor’s Note —The unselfish patriot ism that inspires this great patriot and statesman to put aside for the time being all his own ambitions and de sires and lay uoon altar of his country his wonderful abilities, should be an inspiration to every American citizen and make him resolve to -do “his bit” for hn country. W’e might add that in addition to his many other qualifications, Coi. H. O.Tair is especially qualified to be the head of the navy department, for he is an experienced navigator, having twice travelled the whole length of the. Erie canal, and in hiswyouth having been in sole com mand of a freighter which sailed from Troy to New York.) Note to Editor —Kindly let this last paragraph go as though an inspiration from your own pen. H. O. T.

Lincoln school building and the pupils will give; a first class entertainment. It is hoped that the public will ico operate with the school in making this as big a success as entertainments given by this school in the past. Prac tice work has been commenced. Beau tiful and striking costumes, clever dances and choruses, are among the specialties to be offered. The drawing and manual training exhibits alone ought to attract a large number of our people to the Lincoln building during the two days fnen tioned above. This will give parents and friends an opportunity of viewing the work of the children along these lines. JUDGE REID TRYING HEAVY SUIT A suit instituted by J. P.
