Wisconsin Tobacco Reporter PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY Entered as Second-class Mall Matter at the Postofflcein Edgerton. Wisconsin. FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 1910 Dr. Cook is going back to Etah to consult his Eskimo friends. He wants to find out whether they were mis taken about his discovery of the north pole. We notice a very general crystaliz ing of sentiment among republicans that this business of sand bagging President Taft must be stopped. We never had a fairer, more honest and more patriotic man in the president’s chair and it is time that he had a square deal from the great heart of the com mon people.—Ft. Atkinson Union. That Edgerton people who send or receive goods by express, in common with nearly all residents of Wisconsin, pay exhorbitant express rates as com pared with rates for like service in practically every state where express rates have been brought tinder public regulation, was shown by express rate comparisons introduced in evidence be fore the state railroad commission in Milwaukee last week. These compari sons, presented in statistical tables containing thousands of rates, and also shown graphically by large charts, com prise the most exhaustive express rate comparisons ever introduced before any commission. After introducing tariff and rates in force in Wisconsin, show ing that express rates and charges in this state have been recently greatly increased over rates and charges in force in this state for many years, com parisons with rates in other states were presented. —The interest in the play “St. Elmo” is not confined to any class or age of men and women. The book has been very popular with the last three gener ations, and the management asserts that it is no unusual thing to see three f;enerations of one family at a per ormance. Readers of fiction recall “St. Elmo” as one of the most beau tiful love stories of the language. The character of Edna Earle is undoubtedly as appealing as any in fiction, and the regeneration of St. Elmo Murray through her love is a tale of which one never tires. Miss Grace Hayward, who dramatized the book, has taken few liberties with the story, and the result is a play that fully satisfies, wholesome and true to the last degree. The ap pearance at Royal hall next Wednes day evening is one of the most promis ing events of the year. The original company and production are guaranteed by the management.

Comment on Recent Convention. ! The gathering of that mighty host of i republicans in Milwaukee on Wednes ! day in demonstration of their loyal sup j port of President Taft and his efforts to redeem the pledges given in the na tional convention, was one of the most significant political events in the his tory of Wisconsin. Let it be plainly understood that this convention was composed of hundreds of men, stal warts and half-breeds who have grown heartily tired of the effort certain lead | ers have been making to make them | disloyal to President Taft. They are j tired of the effort to divide and disinte ! grate the republican party. They are ! still republicans, filled with old time loyalty to a loyal leader. And so they came together to say to the world, “We stand by President Taft,” and stand by him they will. —Gov. Hoard. The presence of twelve hundred rep resentatives of the party at the confer ence called on so short a notice and with so little advertising is indicative of a profound feeling among the repub licans of the state. The usual driving power that makes a convention, name ly candidates in the field who see that county delegates pledged to them shall attend the convention, was absent. The delegates went to Milwaukee* to ex press their faith in a good and hard laboring president who is carrying out the wishes of the party and as a sol emn protest to men elected by the party who are balking and thwarting the efforts of the president.—Madison Journal. The time has come when men claim ing to be republicans when wanting of fice, and democrats when in offee, will be obliged to flock with those with whom they sympathize politically, when men professing to be republicans re nounce and denounce, by their acts, every principle of the party. Mem bers of the party may differ on ques tions of procedure and expediency, but in the main should stand for the prin ciples of the party generally, and work for carrying out the party pledges to the people. If they cannot do that, they have no right to wear the label or claim membership in the party, much less to ask for party recognition.— Watertown Leader. While the railroads and the indus tries represent great blocks of capital, contributing largely to the wealth and stability of the nation, the farms of the country total more wealth than these two great forces combined. The Or ange Judd Farmer is sending out some statistics, recently com 'led, which are of interest, because reliable, and be cause they demonstrate that the farm is the foundation of national prosperity. The number of farms in the United States is 6,730,000, an increase of 1,000,- 000 during the last decade. The value is placed at $30,000,000,000 and the product for 1909 represents $9,000,000,- 000, nearly 33 per cent on the capital invested. That’s- better than a gold mine, a railroad, a factory, a commer cial business, or any other investment. While life is a lottery representing more blanks than prizes, the farm is by far and away the safest medium for investment. The land never runs away, never burns up, and the forces of na ture are reliable partners. Stay by the farm. BROWN & PRINGLE June Specials.
