COOIN, - Eoitor and Publisher. ÜBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY ute red Second-class Mail Matter at the officein Edgerton. Wisconsin. FRIDAY, JULY 14, 1916. Both the republican and democratic state tickets were placed in the field Wednesday to go to the primaries in September. The former at Madison, which named for governor Emanuel Philipp of Milwaukee; Lieut. Gov., Maj. Marshall Cousins of Eau Claire; Sec. of State, Geo. L. Harrington of Elkhorn; State Treasurer, Henry John son of Oconto; Atty. Gen., E. R. Hicks of Oshkosh. At Milwaukee the demo crats nominated for governor Burt Wil liams of Ashland; Lieut. Gov., John Cudahy of Milwaukee; Sec. of State, Ned C. Jones of Portage; State Treas urer, John G. Reuterman of Milwau kee; Atty. Gen., Thos. H. Ryan of Ap pleton. Senator La Follette claims to be republican because Wisconsin is a re publican state, but on a great and his toric issue, which has divided the two parties since the birth of the republi can party, he turned his back on all his republican colleagues in the senate and Voted for the Underwood tariff. In any other republican state such con duct would end the public service of a republican senator. It would be re garded as a betrayal of trust, as a de liberate attempt to assassinate and close out the party which honored him. It would warrant the conclusion that he thought himself wiser than his par ty, and was no longer disposed to claim loyalty to party principles as de clared by the national convention, and advocated by party leaders, and by the rank and file. But here in Wisconsin, where the senator has been a boss for so many years, it remains to be seen whether he can vote with the demo crats in favor of free trade and still command the votes of republicans who claim to be for protection to American wage earners and industrial activities. •>—Sentinel. THOSE who applaud the big fellows' paying the piper, as the proper legisla tive procedure, must remember that it is upon the foremost interests that the advancement of the trade principally 'depends. Confiscatory taxation dis courages growth of property and ex pansion of activity. New factories can not be built, new forces cannot be em ployed, new campaigns cannot be exe cuted with surpluses that are constant ly subject to invasion by predatory authority. It is inconceivable that, were the efforts of the leaders in the'c several lines slackened an iota, ther would be prosperity in the trade. It is upon the large interests that the culti vation and encouragement of the smok er depend. The effect of continued op pression, moreover, is toward disinte gration of business long established. The temptation to shave or split up outputs with the view to taking advan tage of the best governmental terms is ever present.—U. S. Tobacco Journal. i Peace and harmony prevailed so ) strongly at the democratic county con i vention held at Janesville Friday that they almost had to fight for it. ■ ■■■ Now that Germany has demonstrated that it is possible to cross the Atlantic in a submarine, the terrors of a sea trip are likely to be removed. A sub sea fleet, however, opens up anew problem to preparedness. The Democratic party would like very much to make it appear that the Wilson administration is responsible for present business conditions. The re ports of the federal government totally disprove such a claim. The enormous crops of last year added approximately $500,000,000 more to the national wealth and circulation than did the crops of 1914. That, in itself, was enough to make a vast difference in relative pros perity. Neither Mr. Wilson, nor Mr. Wilson’s policies, influenced agricul tural production, although the Demo crats are disposed to take credit for it. But figures just published by the De partment of Commerce prove beyond all question that it is the war trade and the war trade alone that has expanded our foreign commerce far beyond all previous records and has made the country richer by many hundreds of millions. Owing to a combination of circum stances the new war revenue measure has been delayed and will not be pre sented for a week or two. Congress has run wild with appropriations for national defense and other things—a billion and a half of dollars, according to Chairman Fitzgerald of the Appro priations Committee, up to date. Until the Ways and Means Committee can form some intelligent idea of the total appropriations and how much money will be necessary, it cannot provide the “ways and means” to raise the same. It is said that the Democratic leaders in Congress are vexed because Presi dent Wilson has vetoed their plan of issuing a couple of hundred million dol lars of Panama Canal or other bonds to provide for the extraordinary expense. “The Democratic party cannot afford a bond issue at this time,” Mr. Wilson is reported as saying. As the leaders are convinced the party cannot stand rais ing taxes by a couple of hundred mil lion a year they do not relish the task before them, which is growing more formidable every day. As Congress cannot adjourn until it arranges to pay the piper, the date of adjournment is receding. Cars Useful to Farmers. No one would have dreamed ten years ago that more farmers would own au tomobiles than town people. Yet it is so. And after all, we think the farm ers not only can better afford to own them but get more service out of them than city folks. The latter use them mostly for pleasure, but the farmer gets real use out of them. They save his time in getting to town and back quickly; his horses get a rest; and he can take longer trips and see more when he wants to go on a visit. It does seem that the proper place for auto, if anywhere, is on the farm. Talcum Powder mate Colgate’s Talcum, the well known powder, Violet, Cashmere Bouquet Eclat, Dactylis and unscented.

Why, only my old friends will be there.—Judge. —Last April, when the roads were in almost impassable condition, two men came into the Beers & Cos. garage with a sorry tale of bad road experience and said that their car was again stuck in the mud just west of the village. They engaged Mr. Beers to pull out their machine, a Hudson Six, and making a loan of S2O, which K they said would get them to their home in Illinois, left by train saying that they would be back for the car in a couple of weeks. The car is still in the garage, and no one has called for it. Effort has been made to locate its owner, and, through correspondence with the Illinois author ities it has been learned that it is a stolen car. Effort is now being made to find its owner through the Hudson manufacturers. —Sun Prairie Country man. Financial Report (Official Publication.)

Perhaps the most remarkable and Intricate strait in the world is likely to be chucked on the scrap heap. Its day, which began late in history, is almost over. The Panama canal has diverted most of its traffic and will presently divert much more. The fa mous explorer Magellan was the first man to brave the dangers of this tor tuous passage. He did it in a wind jammer, but as a rule only steamships follow in his train. It is too crooked a strait for the sailing ship. In the first place, the strait of Magel lan is 400 miles long. It is as twisty and bendy as a serpent or an eel, and in places it is flanked with snow cap ped mountains 7,000 feet high. It would help matters if ships could anchor, but they cannot. The water is too deep. So this strait has never been popular with sailing skippers, and they prefer the rigors of the Horn and several hundred miles farther around. The Cheering Wasn't Renewed. Professor Tt. W. Lee of McGill uni versity law school was once address ing the Ontario Bar association, and the Osgoode hall students were pres ent. Of course Dean Lee’s address had to be punctuated by the usual stu dents’ outbursts. Dean Lee touched on ancient and modern law and the methods of lawyers and judges. Tak ing up one line of legal problems, he said: “Now, if I asked .1 lawyer of such and such an age this question he would answer so and so or something to that effect But, coming down to the present day, if I were to ask the same question of an Osgoode hall stu dent” — Instantly the noise began. The students yelled and cheered and applauded and stamped on the floor and pounded their desks. It was some noise, but at last it subsided. Dean Lee, unruffled, went on to say, “If I were to ask an Osgoode hall student he would answer, T don’t know.’ Silence. Song of the Marines. The United States marine corps is unique in all branches of the American services in having a distinctive march ing song that is as swingy and catchy as many of the foreign marching songs.. True, West Point has its Ben ny Havens song, and the Seventh cav alry marches to the inspiring tune of Garry Owen, but the “Halls of Mon tezuma” is sung by all who wear the marine’s uniform. One verse of the song, a favorite one, runs: Our flag’s unfurled to every breeze From dawn to setting sun. We have fought in every clime and place Where we could take a gun. In the snow of faroff northern lands And in sunny tropic scenes You will find us always on the job. The United States marines- Ribbons Ribbons 50 new pieces, beautiful patterns in taffeta rib bons.
