PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY Entered as Second-class Mail Matter at the Rstofflcein Edgerton. Wisconsin. OFFICIAL CITY PAPER FRIDAY, MAY 16, 1913. Most of the state legislatures have adjourned, but ours has only just fairly got started on the multitude of meas ures before it and wants to take a re cess until fall. The legislature is voting away the public money with a reckless hand as the session progresses, with every prospect of a stinger of a state tax due next winter, and the end is not yet. The Manitowoc assemblyman who in the heat of passion told his fellow members that he was sick and tired of helping pass freak legislation and was going home, little thought he was speaking the sentiments of a ve*y large constituency throughout the state, but he was just the same. At a time of year when their ser vices are least called for for the alleged protection of game, forty new wardens are to be appointed to draw $3 per diem and expenses. The game warden de partment is becoming an expensive farce just to furnish places for political workers as it has been in the past. Kansas has the recall and it is work- 1 ing splendidly. Kansas City, Leaven worth, Topeka, Ottawa and Wichita are each trying it out on commission governed cities. Nothing has been in vented in recent years that promotes so much turmoil in municipal affairs as the recall. As an instrument for con tinuous political performance it is a good thing. Push it along. William R. Hearst’s editorial of October 10, 1912, which he cabled from abroad, warning the Democrats against free trade theories and citing labor con ditions in foreign countries, was read into the record of congress by Repre sentative Austin of Texas. It is likely to be recalled after the new tariff has been in effect long enough to exhibit results. A SINGLE fire at Janesville on April 3rd caused nearly one-half of the total Wisconsin fire loss for the month of April, according to State Fire Marshal T. M. Purtell's monthly report. The total loss from the 208 fires reported that month was $581,585, and the Janes ville conflagration caused losses of over $200,000. The cause is given as incen diary and the state fire marshal's de partment is investigating. The insur ance carried on the property destroyed during the month aggregated $726,700. Co-operative stores have been con ducted successfully in Wisconsin for the last 30 years, but only within two years have they become at all numer ous, under the excellent new law. At present there are 17 successful co-oper ative stores with a total membership now of about 7500, an authorized cap ital stock of some SBOO,OOO, and cash capital actually paid in of around $400,- 000. The stores employ 150 clerks and their volume of business for 1913 will exceed $1,508,000, says Farm and Home. The early co-operative stores in Wisconsin found hard sledding be cause of the lack of co-operative spirit, limited capital, the collapse of the early organized farm and labor movement, lack of business knowledge and prac tice among the co-operators, lack of wholesale houses from which the retail co-operative stores could obtain their supplies. The McGovern-Ekern row got an other hearing in the supreme court c Tuesday, when arguments were heard covering points not raised in the orig inal appeal. “It need not be a law yer,” observes the Madison Democrat, “to understand that the import of these questions is to change the entire aspect of the case so far as it has been here tofore viewed and that the court has in mind a purpose to go into the merits of the case and determine the title to the office. In the lower court the question involved only the standing of an in junctional order. That court dissolved the restraining order and until the higher tribunal signified otherwise it was supposed that it would confine itself to a determination of that issue only. The order for rearrangement was as much of a surprise to the Ekern forces as to the friends of the governor. Consideration of due process of law in this case opens up vast possibilties that may result in the writing into the precedents anew code that will have a wide influence in the future. But, again, it may result in a more com plete establishment of the old rule that the responsiple head may not be held to too strict accountability in the mat ter of removal of subordinates.” The State Journal says: “Stop weaving into law the prejudices of a class.” The question might be aptly asked, “What has the republican party under progressive domination been do ing for the past twelve years or more?” It has been one continual appeal to prejudice, one class against another class, creating unrest and distrust, and has forced thousands of voters to either become independents or to identify themselves with the opposition, and as a result the party has met defeat and will continue to meet defeat. The thinking men of the nation only ask for a “square deal” for all classes and are everlastingly opposed to robbing men because they have been industrious and economical and added to the wealth of the country, by confiscating their prop erty under the form of law, which is called progressiveism. Taxes have been greatly augmented, many commissions created, an army of tax-eaters em ployed until the state capitol was so crowded that anew and larger one be came necessary to accommodate the commissions, bureaus and subordinates to do the work for which the state of ficers are paid. It looks very much as if the State Journal vras doing its best to “weave into law the prejudices of a class.” A reaction is coming just as sure as twice two is four, and we fear that it will not come through the re- Eublican party which has been betrayed y men seeking only their own political preferment. —Watertown Leader.

CHAS. H. HITCHCOCK JEWELER FOR YOUNG MEN FOR YOUNG LADIES “Newspaper Day" In England. March 11 ought to be named “news paper day,” for on it, in the year 1702, was published the first daily paper. It was produced by E. Mallet “against the ditch at Fleet bridge”—i. e., on or near the site of the present Printing House square. Of a single page, two columns, the Daily Courant professed to give foreign news only without edi torial comments, the chief of staff “supposing other people to have sense enough to make reflections for them selves.” This original sheet soon pass ed into the hands of Samuel Buckley, “at the sign of the Dolphin in Little Britain.” the worthy printer of the Spectator and one “well affected” to the house of Hanover Abe Courant was in 1735 absorbed in Lie Daily Ga zette.—London Chronicle. Uranus. It was on the evening of March 13, 1781, that William Herschel, at Slough, England, discovered anew planet. Wishing to pay a compliment to George 111., his patron, he gave it the name of Georgium sidus. or the Geor gian star. Other English astronomers, wishing to compliment tne discoverer himself, suggested the name of Her schel. Continental astronomers pro posed that the old mythological sys tem be followed, and the name of Ura nus was accepted by the scientific world as the designation of the sev enth Dlanet.
