DUNWIDDIE There is a joker concealed in one of the constitutional amendments to be submitted at the election this fall. But the voters will be fully informed about it later. If you want a state to be conducted as you would your own business—if you want lower taxes, then there is but one path to follow. Go to the primary next Tuesday and vote for E. L. Philipp for governor. Don’t get all balled up trying to vote for a second choice candidate at the primary. One vote for a candidate for any office ought to be all any voter is entitled to. If you flirt with Mary Ann beware of the consequences. Overtaxation means confiscation. That is the condition which prevails in Wisconsin today and the only way the people can obtain relief is to clean house at the state capitol. The first step will be taken at the primaries next Tuesday. At the top of this page we present a list of republican candidates at the primary which The Reporter can highly commend to the voters next Tuesday. Cut out this slip and take it to your booth so you need make no mistake in marking your ticket. Think of the money tKe Atlantic cable companies are taking in! The government has spent $250,000 already in cabling about missing Americans and other war business, and private indi viduals must have spent as much as this, and probably a great deal more. The Panama canal is now thrown open to the shipping of the world. At a cost of nearly four hundred millions to this government, after the French had spent a like amount and failed, the greatest engineering feat of this world has become a reality and the dream of centuries has become real. One of the big immediate conse quences of the European struggle to the commerce of the United States is already seen to be the opening of the gates of larger trade between this country and the nations of Central and South America. So long as the war closes the channels of European trade, the Latin republics must look to this country largely for their needed sup plies and for an outlet to their pro ducts. After all is said and done, there is but one issue in Wisconsin. The de plorable condition of state affairs over tops all else. Senator La Follette blames Governor McGovern, and he in turn accuses Senator Scott and the state senate. In the meantime there is a general scramble among the state officials and members of the legislature to side-step the responsibility. But it is a case of the “pot calling the kettle black.” The truth of the matter is the men who have been in power are equally responsible and the one is as deep in the mire as the other. Sure Enough, Why Not? If the people want a change of meth ods they must vote for a change of men. They never had a better oppor tunity for a wholesome, substantial change; for getting a full pattern, sucC cessful, self-made man of affairs for* governor who would devote to their at*" fairs the same brains and energy and grasp of business that have made him succeed in his own affairs than the candidacy of Mr. Philipp affords them. About half of these “progressive” politicians are frankly calling Mr. Dahl a ninespot who would rattle round in the governorship like a dried pea in a bladder; and the <Sther half (including Dahl) are denouncing Hatton as a high taxer in office and a low taxer for of fice. Why not take them at their words, “pass up” both Hatton and Dahl, and elect anew and unbossed man with “no strings on him” who would take office with the biggest possible incen tive to give the state the best and most businesslike administration it ever had, and who, from the ground up, is built for the job—Emanuel Philipp?— Milwaukee Sentinel. The announcement of the state tax commission that a million dollars more of income taxes will be squeezed out of the people of Wisconsin this year than last causes no surprise. The commis sion is there to get the money and the spenders at Madison will find a place for it all right. Mr. Taxpayer, cut this out and put it in your vest pocket for reference when you get into an argument with a high-taxer.

Indus try is the victim of war. Agriculture is the victim of war. Art is the victim of war. Above all, the home and the family are the victims of war. War is the enemy of comfort and of all that normal man holds dear. It is barbar ous, brutal, bloody. Not a circumstance justifies it—at least such a war as this which chiefly is for the bolstering up Qf royalty. All the world is outraged by this infamous conflict, and we are all paying the bill. —Madison Democrat. Emanuel L. Philipp is the only can didate for governor who did not in some way assist in bringing about the pres ent deplorable condition of state affairs so much complained of; the only one with clean hands, without apology or excuses. The others are tarred with the same stick. While many of them admit the charges of extravagance and are prolific in their accusations of the other fellow, they are prolific in their promises to do better if given another chance. Are men who have assisted in bringing these abuses upon us to be trusted to undo the wrong? The duty of every voter is plain. Clean house is the only remedy. When the tax commission were first confronted with evidence of their de bauchery they Iristled up and assumed a half-scared, half-fight attitude. They called upon the most proficient mathe maticians and figure jugglers to cipher them out of their unenviable predica ment, as the Pharos of ancient Egypt were wont to call on their astrologers and soothsayers. The more the rules of mathematics were applied, the more the tax eaters became enmeshed in the web of their own squanderings. After a while one of their experts, on becom ing convinced that mathematics would hot stem the revolt against extortion ate taxation, concluded to try some thing else, so he invented “barbaric yawp,” hoping thereby to create a senti ment against the protesting taxpayers. It didn’t work. Now every progressive, from the chief priest down, is admit ting the charge of extravagance, each laying the blame on the other and all promising to do better if given another trial. And do you know that the same blast of opposition from the taxpayers which aroused progressive republicans aroused the progressive democrats also? It did. Until the trumphet was sound ed calling to arms all who opposed ex tortionate taxation, not a progressive democrat had uttered a word against it. The moment, hovrever, it became known that the tax protesters outnum bered the progressives, that moment certain progressive democrats joined the tax protesting movement. The whole progressive bunch are now on bended knees imploring mercy. The “barbaric yawpers” are on top.—Mad isonian. War Prices Hit the Printers, Too. Printers of all kinds are being sorely hit by the elevation in prices because of the war. The ink, which makes the letters you are reading now, has gone up 25 per cent. That is a stupendous increase and affects every printer, big and small —the one who publishes a newspaper the same as one who oper ates a small job office. The rate on paper also has ascended greatly. An important chemical used in its composi tion comes f’-rm Germany, and the supply of course has been shut off com pletely. Hence the increase. News papers abroad actually are curtailing size to save paper. American publish ers, if the war continues long, may also be obliged to adopt a similar ex pedient. High priced papers, those used in making all kinds of blanks, books to a considerable extent, and in job work generally, will cost more highly even than the paper used for news purposes. Jobbers actually are withdrawing quotations on many of the higher grades of paper. The price of type goes up too, and linotype metal likewise.—Ex. ♦♦♦ Real Estate Bargains.
