Store Wisconsin Tobacco Reporter HJdgerton, - Wisconsin F W. COOIN, • Editor and Publisher. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY t.uie red asSecond-class Mail Matter at the otofflcein Edgerton. Wiaconsin. FRIDAY, JULY 7, 1916. A STATE convention has been called by the republican state central commit tee to be held in Madison July 12th to recommend a complete state ticket to be voted for at the September pri maries. It is with a feeling of regret that the press of the state learn of the death of Harry P. Myrick, appointed a year ago to the state printing board by Gov. Philipp, which occurred at Madison on Saturday last. His long connection with the Milwaukee Sentinel and Free Press gave him a wide acquaintance throughout the state and a host of friends who admired his lovable char acter. Col. Roosevelt has returned to the republican party and announces that he will strongly support Hughes. The logic of events left him nothing else to do. When the nomination of Hughes became a political certainty it was easy to predict the colonel’s course. He will feel at home again in the re publican party, which gave him all his opportunities for service. Lawrence Whittet is for all prac tical purposes, governor of Wisconsin at this time. He has been in the gov ernor’s office since Mr. Philipp was laid low with appendicitis and from there handles the bulk of matters which come before a state executive. The exper ience should stand Whittet in good stead when at some time in the future the people of Wisconsin turn to him to take charge of their affairs. — White water Register. After vainly trying to persuade the progressive convention from butting its head against a stone wall at Madi son last week, Hal Martin concludes that the real difference between the progressives and stalwarts is that the stalwarts are willing a few of their numbers hold the offices but the pro gressives all want office. This view finds some corroboration in Prof. Holt, who, after watching the antics of the gathering observes that there were about 350 delegates attending and as near as he could figure it out 350 men who wanted some political preferment. There are compensations for almost everything in life. For example, most sections would balk at the establish ment of a powder mill within its con fines on account of the danger of ex plosives, and loss of life. But in the township of Barksdale, Washburn Cos., Wis., where one of the great DuPont powder plants is located, $llB,OOO of tax money will be paid in the coming year to the town treasurer and will be available for public improvements. Hitherto the entire expenses of running the township government, road build ing and all, has not exceeded $3,000. Concrete roads will be built out of this tax money.

In 1913 the average deficit of states was 4 per cent, of the counties 4 per cent and of cities of over 8000 population 13 per cent. How to get additional revenue to meet new ex penditures is one of the gravest prob lems. Not only has congress drawn heavily on state sources of incomes un der the new provision, which it was generally supposed would be reserved for emergencies, lyit it is now threat ening an increase of the surtax rate and considering the imposition of an inheritance tax. The states are shut off by the constitution from customs. The national government, in time of peace, deliberately cut the tariff, ac cording to the admissions of Mr. Un derwood, to use an income tax, never before validly levied in time of peace. General Pershing was sent to Mex ico to “get” Villa. He has not, and is apparently not going to get him. Why, then, is he compelled to stay in the in terior of Mexico? Why are not the United States troops being employed as a mobile force along the Mexican j border to guard the United States against bandit raids? President Wil son’s Mexican policy has been weird from the beginning. He “took” Vera Cruz; put Huerta out; and then got out himself and turned Mexico over to j anarchy. He then explained it all in j an interview in the Philadelphia Satur- | day Evening Post, saying that he j wanted to put the Mexican peon back j on the land. Villa, Carranza and all the rest of them are protesting that they are after the same thing, namely, to put the peon back on his land. If we now engage in the conquest of Mex ico we shall be hearing all summer from the stump the charges rung on that well worn metaphor that we must vote for the Democrats because “we must not swap horses while crossing a stream.” The answer that the Repub licans ought to make is this: If you are crossing a stream on a spavined and obstinate old mule, and a fine well sad dled horse comes alongside the mule, the worse the current is the better it will be for you to swap for the horse.
