Wisconsin. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY FRIDAY, JUNE 11, 1909. Both branches of the legislature have resolved to continue the investigation and take in everything about the state capitol. It looks as if there would be plenty of material for the next cam paign. - s The slaughter of bills the closing days of the legislative session was something awful and yet there seems to be a well founded opinion that it would have been better if a good many of the laws passed had never got by the ax. The most serious criticism of the present legislature is that the game of politics was played to the limit and all the good legislation accomplished had to Jfight its way through the political cloud. The Madison Democrat proposes a state commission to look after the oth er state commissions. Not a bad idea. And why not have a commission in place of the state officers? The com mission business seems to be overdone by the state legislature and we will soon have an army of salary grabbers that will astonish even the members of that body. Mr. Whittet’s Telling Facts. Oratory may sometimes sweep off its feet an audience, but the binder twine proposition met failure in the assembly chiefly it is believed, because of the concrete presentation of hard facts made by Chairman Whittet of the com mittee on claims. His was a discussion built up with strong statistics relative to the operation of twine plants in other prisons; staggering financial invest ments elsewhere and ultimately certain wherever such an enterprise is under taken; of the questionable fiscal results in some places and the large stocks-of raw material on hand and finished prod uct unsold in others; of the hazard a state encounters in dealing with a ca pricious market; of the menace to health involved in twine making espec ially under prison auspices, and, of the unsuitability of the business to a situa tion such as ours, where less than 100 convicts could be employed out of a to tal of four or five times that number for which work must be found. Such an assembling of forceful facts, which to a considerable extent have seemed beyond effective refutation, must prove as it did, a most serious obstacle for the earnest proponents of the plan to overcome. Mr. Whittet spoke strongly, clearly and with the evident sincerity of conviction. Indeed, he voiced the undi vided opinion of the conscientious and intelligent committee on claims that previously had bfen convinced, doubt less against its own will, that twine making by convicts is a perilous exper iment from a financial standpoint for the commonwealth. —Madison Demo crat.

It begins to look as if there would be trouble again in Cuba before long. The government is indulging in great extravagance that may quickly lead to bankruptcy. Lotteries and cock fight ing have been licensed, and bull fight ing is about to be. Confidential infor mation to our government leads to the fear that intervention may be neces sary in the very near future. It IS no great credit to Illinois that it cast aside Senator Hopkins and chose in his stead “Billy” Lorimer, the Chi cago congressman, who has long repre sented the stock' yards district. Sena tor Hopkins was nominated at last falls primary election as the choice of his party "for the place he had filled with credit. A small faction of republican members refused to be governed by the state wide primary and a deadlock has been maintained throughout the legisla tive session. Lorimer was elected by a coalition of democrats and republicans. —Viroqua Censor. Thus is the direct primary law again vindicated. —Greatest lace curtain sale ever held in Janesville.
