TUESDAY, MAY 8, 1917. OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY PAPER. Published weekly and entered at the Post Office at Wausau as second class matter. Are We To Let Onr Own People Starve? Hardly a paper that comes to the table of the Pilot, hut what gives out the warning that the prices of food are so high as to be almost prohibitive to the average laborer. From the same source is learned that speculators have an enormous amount of eggs stored in Chicago, and no place in which to store more. This same condition exists with reference to nearly all kinds of food stuffs. What is the remedy? The man or set of men, guilty of securing a corner on food stuffs to make enormous gains, at this time when our nation is in war, far outstrips, in downright, con temptible depravity, the traitor to his country. The speculator in foodstuffs —we mean the combination that gets control of a certain commodity and pushes un the price to double what it should, be, if left alone, —can starve out our people. He can get his ex tortionate prices by selling the goods to foreign nations. But the question is, is it right to starve our children and our people to help out other nations? Every paper in the United States should demand that there be no speculation in any kind of foods until this war is at an end. If the government is anxious to help its people it should prosecute men stor ing food stuff, with a view of raising prices to the extent or practically starve out our people. The government should buy and sell food to its subjects, if necessary, to in sure them having plenty. Will there be a vast increase of crops next fall? Not in Marathon county. There is a shortage of seed for one thing. At the price of pota toes, beans, onions, etc., many cannot afford to buy seed, even if it can be had. There need be no fear of over production. This will be a bonanza year for the farmer. The State Trunk Highway Law The passage of the state trunk high way bill over-whelmingly by both the senate and assembly is looked upon by good roads advocates as a distinct step forward in highway legislation in Wisconsin. This bill constitutes anew unit —the state—for under its terms the state will lay out, construct and maintain the state trunk system of roads. The measure is regarded as highly favorable for the agricul tural counties for the reason that the state and federal funds will be dis tributed among the counties on the basis of mileage, area and assessed valuation. As these counties usually have a large area and mileage, as compared to such counties as Milwau kee, with large assessed valuation, they will receive a much larger pro portion under the state highway law than they do -under the present state aid law. The state aid law is not amended or changed in any way. It is expected that the highway commission will at an early date be gin hearings throughout the state preliminary to laying out the trunk highway roads. It will take the bal ance of the year to continue these hearings, and construction on the system will not begin until next year. Under the terms of this bill the counties will furnish one-third of the cost of the building of the portion of the trunk highway in each county. Under the present state aid law, counties are paying from two-thirds to three-quarters of the cost of the state aid highways. Under the trunk highway bill a county may assess a town up to one-half of the county’s share of the building of a portion of the state trunk highway system in said town—-16 2-3 of the whole cost,— provided that no town shall be as sessed over SI,OOO a mile. Under the state aid law towns pay one-third of thd cost. The bill in brief provides for the laying out of a State Trunk Highway System, not to exceed 5,000 miles, to inter-connect every county seat in the state. This system will be laid out by the State Highway Commission after hearings in different localities. Appeal from the decision of the com mission may be made to a legislative committee, made up of three assembly men and two senators, and their de cision shall be final. In the next five years the state will receive from the federal government, for the building of this trunk line system $1,925,416. Under the federal act the state is required to appropri ate an tqual amount. It is proposed to raise this amount and to provide the funds necessary for the mainten ance of the system by increasing the automobile license fees to SIO.OO for each car. Under the terms of the bill the counties of the state in the aggre gate are required to provide an amount equal to that provided by the state. This means that two-thirds of the cost of this system will come from the federal government and the state, and one-third from the counties. In asmuch as the expenditure will be spread over a tnree year period and must come from seventy-one coun ties, the amount annually required from each county is small. The main tenance of the system will be done under state direction by the present county organizations and will be paid for out of the increased automobile license fees. The federal government requires proper maintenance or the federal*aid will be withdrawn. The state and. federal fund for building this system will be divided among the counties on the basis of road mileage, area and assessed value. Under the present state aid law the money is divided on the basis of as sessed value, which gives the richer counties, like Milwaukee, a much larger proportion than under the new trunk line bill. Under this latter bill the agricultural counties in the state with large areas and road mileage will receive a much larger proportion. The bill finally provides for the erec tion by the state of a standard design of road markers on the trunk system, the numbering of each of the roads and the issuance of a map of the sys tem by the state. The trunk line bill merely marks the first step and the laying out of a plan. That the financial outlay un der the provisions of the bill is small is indicated by the fact that under its terms in a three year period. $5,776,248 will be spent, while under the present state aid law we are spending about four and one-half million dollars a year. There seems to be an armistice exist ing along the entire Russian front as there has not been a shot fired for a month, and in many places the Russian and German soldiers are fraternizing —meeting unarmed. In high places of that country there are rumblings of a revolution. While everything possible should be done to conserve our food supply and to eliminate waste, every effort should be exerted to keep the business of the country going to its full capacity. To eliminate waste does not mean that one must live on bread annd water and to commence to carry on a system of starvation; one will pay out. about the same amount of money as usual, but he will necessarily have to make things go farther; have to aubatitute Circular Sent Out to the Farmers of Marathon County by the Marathon County Council of Defense There has been appointed by President Wilson a National Council of Defense including some of the most prominent men of the United States. The Governor of Wisconsin has organized a State Council of Defense of which Willett M. Spooner is Chair man, Norris C. Bachelor of LaCrosse, Wisconsin, is Sec retary and other members consisting of Guy D. Goff, Milwaukee; M. G. Jeffris, Janesville; W. E. Brown, Rhinelander; P. A. Martin, Green Bay; and R. M. Craw ford of Mineral Point, Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Committee has called upon Honor able H. E. Marquardt, Mayor of the city of Wausau to assist in perfecting an organization to be known as the Marathon County Council of Defense. This has been done and such council is composed of one representative of the manufacturing interests of the county, C. C. Yawkey; one representative of labor, Alex Archie; one representative of the farmers, Ed. Gensmann; one re presentative of the bankers, H. G. Flieth; one represent ative of the Bar association, C. B. Bird; one repre sentative of the merchants, S. Winkelman; one repre sentative of the city council, A*. V. Gearhart; one mem ber of the County Board, Frank F. Chesak; one repre sentative of the newspapers, E. B. Thayer; one woman who shall represent the Women’s Clubs, Mrs. A. H. Reid and one physician, who shall represent the medical profession, Dr. Jos. F. Smith. The Chairman of this Council has appointed you and others of your school board as members of a local council of your school district, together with instruc tions how to act and what is expected of you. At a meeting of the County Council of Defense held in the city of.Wausau, Thursday evening, the matter of food production was considered the most important, and, inasmuch as the time is short for action to promote material results in this direction, a special committee was appointed to confer with you at once with such in formation and advice as may be at our disposal. Supply and demand usually controls the prices of all commodities. The present prices of food-stuffs must necessarily confirm the fact that the world is short of in many ways and learn to be economi cal. But business should be kept up and our industries kept busy, for therein lies the prosperity of our coun try. Do Not Overdo It “One of the greatest dangers that confront us at this moment is mis guided thrift,” declares a statement issued today by S. W. Straus, president of the American Society for Thrift. “In our efforts to be patriotical eco nomical, we find ourselves going to extremes in the opposite direction, which is just as great a menace as wastefulness and extravagance,” said he. “One of the worst calamities that could befall our nation at any time would be to stop the wheels of indus try, but more especially NOW’. “The point is to differentiate be tween destructive and constructive thrift. In times of peace or war, waste is reprehensible, but indiscriminate tight-listedness is worse, because in such conditions the provident are made to suffer with the improvident. “Because the whole nation suddenly has become conscious of the necessity of thrift, we as individuals should take care not to deflect from their normal courses the tides of the nation’s money that turn the wheels of industry. America as a nation is not in any dan ger of running short of money, but we are threatened with a food short age because on us rests the duty and responsibility of feeding our allies. “Everyone can distinguish between prudent living and wastefulness. If a man buys a suit of clothes, a pair of shoes or a hat, his money goes into legitimate circulation and furnishes uses for capital and employment of labor. “The American people have respond ed in a grand way to the needs of the hour. We are going to conserve our resources and increase our food sup ply in a way that will astonish the world, but in doing this we stand face to face with economic hardships un less each individual is governed by common sense, prudence and fore sight. “In brief, administer expenditures in a clean, legitimate and patriotic manner. Eliminate waste of food, bear ing in mind that every mouthful you save may be the sustenance of some starving fellow-human being. We should not tear down on one hand while we are trying to build up on the other. Those in business should not hesitate—be courageous and keep on going. America has everything to make herself prosperous. The billions of dollars which are being raised for war purposes will eventually return into the pockets of the people. Even the money which we loan to our allies is being spent in America. The na tional bond issue means that for some years to come this country will be pay ing back the obligations incurred to day. America is still in the midst of the greatest era of material prosperity the country has ever known. “In the matter of individual expendi ture every man should be guided by his own necessities and the needs of his country. Let none of us be a slack er in the business world. This is no day for the coward or weakling. Be brave and confident. Remember the most acute need of our nation today is intelligent, productive, constructive thrift." It is dawning upon the minds of Americans generally that we are lia ble to have a long and bloody war on our hands. Some have tried to make themselves believe that there was to be an early peace; that the central powers were ready to quit annd appeal for peace. There is getting around, the fact that all of the great nations now in the war. who are doing the fighting, such as Germany, Austria. Turkey. England . Russia, France and Italy are in desperate condition. They are fast using up the resources of their respec tive countries—the wealth as well as the provisions, etc. The recent drive made by France and England, one would think, would have driven the central powers back to their own territory, but such is not the case. It is stated' that if they were continued to be forced back at the same rate as for the past six weeks, it will take another year to get them out of France. The conditions of Russia are past finding out. at least There are still rumors in the air that she is seeking separate peace. Should this be the case the war will be pro longed indefinitely. It was supposed that the U-boat campaign to starve out England was a complete failure, but English papers and English states men admit that the situation is grave. The shortage of food is so great that a system of rationing the population may be expected. On top of this is the knowledge that England’s finances are greatly depleted. From the way our country is pre paring to raise an enormous army and to build up its navy, it is evident that the powers fully realize that there is to be a long and a fierce struggle.

The‘relief from pain which it affords is alone edy and It soon got him w**!!.” Obtain able everywhere. provisions and undoubtedly will be for two or three vears to come and the farmer holds the key to the situ ation and now is the accepted time for hin to profit thereby. Secretary Redfield of the Department of Commerce has issued a statement appealing to the commercial agencies of the Country to act in concentration of their energies to increase crops and the supply of lood-stuffs for the next two or three years at least. It is proposed that the Councils of Defense shall undertake to aid the farmer along lines that will be advantageous and profitable to him and at the same time relieve the food situation. First. We urge the farmer to enter as far as prac ticable into the preparation of new and unused lands and to increase acreage at every available point, clear new lands for pasturage and plow and cultivate the old. Raise wheat and supply enough bread for your own family at least. We are advised that all railroad right of-way may be had free, by applying to any local sta tion agent or section foreman. Second. The Marathon County Council of Defense will undertake to establish a labor bureau and attempt to provide so far as possible such labor as the farmer may desire to employ for the purpose of increasing his output. Third. We desire to assist in procuring seed for the farmer and any inquiry for seed, grain or vegetables will be given prompt attention if addressed to our Mr. A. G. Burg, Superintendent of t he Marathon County Agricultural School, Wausau, Wisconsin. We are having enthusiastic reports from many points that all this is being done and we sincerely hope that every patriotic farmer of Marathon County will do his full share towards planting and harvesting an abundant crop this year, thereby contributing to our Country’s needs and also profiting himself thereby. We urge that you hold weekly meetings and keep in touch with the situation.

CONFIRMATION AT ST. JAMES’ CHURCH Yesterday was confirmation at St. James’ Catholic church of this city and 125 candidates were confirmed—69 boys and 76 girls, and among them were 29 converts to the church. The ceremonies commenced at 9:30 o'clock and the church was crowded to its capacity. The candidates marched from St. James hall to the church with acolytes, priests and the Rt. Rev. Bishop Joseph Schwebach of the diocese. Solemn High Mass was celebrated —Rev. W.Daniels, celebrant; Rev. John M. Owens of Merrill, deacon; Rev. F. Forster of Stratford, sub-dea con and Rev. F. X. Orthen of Edgar, master of ceremon.es. Avery eloquent sermon was preached by Rev. J. J. Robliecki of Mosinee. The Rt. Rev. Bishop delivered a splendid address after the Sacrament of Confirmation had been administered. There were cwelve priests present and participating in the ceremony. The St. James’ choir, under the direc tion of Del Curtis, rendered Bass’ Mass in G, splendidly, while Miss Mamie presided at the organ. The entire ceremony was performed without a serious defect and the day will long be remembered by those who witnessed it. THE SITUATION Considerable progress has been made in the planting of potatoes and other garden vegetables this spring, many of our people having taken ad vantage of utilizing the vacant lots and lands within and close to the city limits. I’he agricultural committee has rendered very valuable service to the poor and working classes of the city by having nearly all available lands plowed, they being however, somewhat handicapped in their inabili ty to secure the necessary teams to do the plowing. The seed potato situa tion was taken quite well in hand; one car was shipped in here by the Dodge-Hooker Milling Cos., and was disposed of by the Mayor and Mr. Burg, the principal of the* Agricultural school. A second car was secured bv the Mayor through the American So ciety of Equity and since then two cars were shipped in here bv C. H Wegner. E. A. Hochtritt and G. A. Oss wald. Although there is still some de mand for seed potatoes, there is how ever, no shortage and a further supply will undoubtedly be available within a few days. I’ARTIAL ARRANGEMENTS MADE Partial arrangements for the ob servance of Memorial Sunday and Me morial day exercises were made at a regular meeting of the members of ( utler Post, Xo. 55, G. A. R. and a committee of the Spanish-American war veterans at their headquarters on Saturday afternoon. Committees were appointed to make all necessary ar rangements relative to the occasion and to report at another meeting which is called for Saturdav. May 19 when the full program will' be com pleted and publicly announced. WAUSAU PILOT A. V. GEARHART. A. G. BURG. H. G. FLIETH. Committee DO YOU NEED FARM HELP County Agricultural School in Touch With Central Agencies for Supplying Farm Labor. This is the year above all others when farm labor is going to yield big returns. The nation needs food. The shortage in food materials is con stantly becoming more acute. There fore, our farmers cannot afford to be without necessary help to care for the season's crops if it is at all possible to get it. The State Department of Agriculture is informed that there are thousands of men in our larger cities who have had farm experience, and who are willing to go back to the farm if they knew how and were to go. Some of these are experienced in one line of farming, and some in an other. Some will be single, and some will be married with families. There fore, there will be at least some choice in the men who are available for work. Again it is reported that there are many boys in Chicago from sixteen to eighteen years old, good wholesome boys, but without farm experiences who would be willing to take jobs at from eighteen to twenty dollars a month, if you are in need of farm help write at once to the County Agriculture School at Wausau, and blanks will be furnished you immedi ately to make application for some of this help. P>. A. Humphrey, County Fieldman INTEREST IN GARDENING This evening, after school hours, Miss Emma Conley will be at the pub lic library, where she will talk to the children of the fifth and sixth grades of the local schools, on the subject of child gardening. Ail children of those grades in parochial and public schools, who are interested in garden ing are cordially invited to attend. Last year the children’s gardens were successful and Miss Conley’s sugges tions will undoubtedly urge the young workers on to greater interest this season. Miss Conley, who is state representative of garden work, with headquarters in Madison, was at one time a teacher in the Agricultural school in Wausau and has many inends and acquaintances here. Miss Conley will speak tonight in tne Lincoln school under the aus pices of the Marathon County Council ot Defense, commencing at 7-30 o clock.

Our long talked of sale is set for Friday, May 11, at the home of Mrs. Roberts, 625 Scott street. Anew proposition confronts us. We have never held any rummage sales, strictly speaking, but have been in the habit of bringing things from our own homes, either new or old, but always clean. Now, according to the st in gent rules of the Health department, (which are certainly all right) this is no longer allowable, so it’s likely our collection of all new articles will be somewhat limited. Our meetings are always open to all, and we urge you all to come; mem bers, and non-members. We have plans to make, and questions to de cide, and we want wou all to have a voice. For one thing, we want to learn the best way to dispose of the discards we have on hand, to the best advantage; it’s a shame to cumber out attics and closets with these things which, by giving, will mean a service to our country. (Smile.) We shall have some fancy work for sale, and may take orders. There will be the little books of poems by the blind lady, and sheet music by the same author—regular 25 cent' size, for 5 cents. We also have a few of the dainty silk bookmarks we’ve mentioned be fore. The proceeds go to Mrs. A. J. Brown, a hopeless invalid from rheu matism. If you have anything you wish to do nate, it will be gratefully received; but do not feel that you are not entirely welcome, if you bring or buy nothing. If the day is pleasant, we hope to have Miss Metz with us. Remember the date—Friday, May 11, —and the number —625 Scott St. Sec.
