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.

The cities, counties and states are
running behind. 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.
