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
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
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.

A band of Bull Moosers who ranged
off the reservation last fall held a meet
ing in Chicago this week to decide
plans for getting back into the big
tent. Satisfied that the progressive
movement cannot accomplish anything,
they now seek a reorganization of the
Republican party. “While the lamp

“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

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

posed that the old mythological sys
tem be followed, and the name of Ura

world as the designation of the sev
