Wisconsin. FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 1914 The hope of a cheaper meat supply, some authorities assert, lies in sheep. The days of cheap beef are said to be over, and because of this cheap beef supply that the country has enjoyed up to a few years ago, mutton has not been appreciated. Last year’s figures show only 62,000,000 sheep on the farms, or about half a sheep for every one of our population, but according to the Department of Agriculture the country is capable of easily supporting something like 300,000,000 sheep. Un doubtedly the sheep is the future meat animal in America, but the increase will come not from the increase or es tablishment of great flocks of thou sands of animals as are to be found to day in the West, but in the raising of innumerable flocks —on every farm. Evidently this country is facing an experiment in government ownership which is likely to be a costly lesson, but which may be worth the price. Thus far the government has been hav ing a perfectly lovely time with super vision and control of railroads main tained and managed —except as to earn ings—at private expense. Now it will have to pay for the construction, equip ment, maintenance and management of a railroad system. It will have oppor tunity to learn from practical exper ience that it costs much money to run a railroad, and that money cannot be miraculously produced by scientific man agement, that there must be adequate earnings and that to produce them ade quate charges must be made for ser vice. To pass an appropriation bill, to sign it. and to make cheerful remarks about what is expected of this new en terprise—that is all very easy. The real work remains to be done; the act ual cost to be met. Deerfield farmers are up in arms over excessive taxation and allied evils. Some 200 of them met at their town hall a few nights since and exhibited vast earnestness, enthusiasm and in dignation over state expenditures and state meddlesomeness. The resolutions adopted unanimously by these assem bled farmers directly demand the aboli tion of the “state tax commission, the board of public affairs, the legislative reference bureau, the highway com mission” and numerous other boards and commissions, also that the activi ties of other administrative agencies be curtailed and their expenses be re duced to “one-eighth of what they now cost.” These farmers frankly declar ed that, as bad as taxation is, that evil is not as great as the numerous laws which “deprive us of natural rights and the right to control and manage our local governments. ” State insurance is condemned and the ten amendments to our constitution to be voted for next November are denounced. The func tions of government, these farmers in sist, are “to govern not to sell insur ance, buy eggs or deal in hides and pelts.” No such far-reaching resolu tions have been adopted heretofore at any of the numerous tax uprisings. PRINGLE, BROS. COMPANY Department Store. Eldflerton, Wisconsin In a decision in the Janesville water case the supreme court has pointed out the necessity of observing the law strictly in the submission of questions regarding public utilities to the vote of the people. The court held that one day’s time less than the number re quired in giving notice of special elec tion, invalidated the election. This may look to some like splitting hairs but the court says not. The farmers over in the town of Dunkirk told the governor what they thought of his proposition of calling a special session of the legislature in very pointed language, to-wit: “Be it Re solved, by the electors of the town of Dunkirk, that insofar as this town is concerned, we have no suggestions to offer the governor respecting the call ing of a special session for any purpose; that, in our opinion, the members of the legislature of 1913 will be no wiser, and no more patriotic, and will exercise no more care to conserve the interests of the taxpayers of Wisconsin as to now make it necessary to call them to gether to undo what they did, it would be a useless waste of public money to hold such special session; that the pru dent thing for the farmers and tax payers to do is to bide their time until next election, and then elect legislators who will represent them, and not stand for everything theorists may propose, or experimentalists avocate. Govern ment by theorists and exploiters is too expensive for even prosperous Wiscon sin.” Now old busybody Wis is to pry into the kitchens of the commonwealth. She may not become a dishwasher, but she will be next. She proposes to see that no cracked dishes are used in hotels and restaurants. Possibly she will also peep into stewpans, spiders, pots and kettles to determine whether they are broken or rusty. This all is of monumental importance. The very foundations of the state will be griev ously disturbed if these cracked plates are not cast aside at once. What a terrible danger have we not been run ning all these careless years from sub tle microbes that have sneaked into cracked ware and laid in wait for us at every meal! Lord, how narrow the escape! Hardy little customers, too, they must be to have withstood the daily boilings to which plates in use or dinarily are subjected. But now hap pily our troubles are over. We may dine in peace, for is the grandmotherly state not to have an inspector at every draining board in restaurant and hotel, armed mayhap with a maul to finish the destruction of every piece of treacherous cracked crockery. Just where Grandma Wis will get after mi crobes next remains to be seen. So far, however, no bedbug inspectors have been appointed, nor expert fly trappers. Doubtless at the special ses sion of the legislature adequate provis ion will be made to fill this yawning gap. —Democrat. —Have sold all but a 5-ft.
