COOIN, - Editor and Publisher Subscription - $1.50 Per Year FRIDAY. MARCH 28, 1919. The primary law seems doomed in New York, Idaho and a few other states betore legislative sessions finish their work. A big majority of the people of this country are against the surrender of American independence involved in the British league of nations plan as now being advocated by Mr. Wilson, and when the thing has been thoroughly ventilated the number of its supporters will be greatly lessened. Don't fool yourself about that. The people want ed and expected a court of nations to adjust international differences; not a league of nations in which legislation by international majorities is substi tuted for judicial determination of equity. After ten years of direct primaries, Idaho will return to the convention plan. Hereafter only precinct commit teemen and county officers will be chosen at the direct primaries. County conventions will name dele gates to the state conventions, and at the state conventions congressmen and state officers will be nominated. Dem ocrats and republicans united in mak ing the change. The abuse of the pri mary system by the entrance into them of voters who do not belong to the parties whose nominations they seek to control was the cause of the change. Independent elements or new parties will now be required to stand on their own merits in the nomination and elec tion of officials. The Department of Labor has issued a statement by Roger W. Babson that contains many interesting bits of in formation concerning the things being done in Washington to help business. According to Mr. Babson, the United States hasn’t been losing its money, since in 1910 the country was found to be worth $186,000,000,000; while today it is estimated to be worth $265,000,- 000,000, while our war debt is only some fifteen or sixteen billions. In view of the fact that the world con flict has cost the nations $193,000,000,- 000, Uncle Sam seems to have come through in enviable shape, financially. The statement throws light on many public questions. In one place it says: “In addition to this work of stimulat ing public and private construction of school houses and other public build irgs, private residences and wage workers’ homes, sewers, water works and other municipal improvements, the Labor Department is making a special drive to get public utilities on a stable basis. The secretary is especially sym pathetic with the needs of the traction companies, believing that they deserve higher fares, and relief from taxation and other burdens. Studies are now being made in the secretary’s office for planß which will stabilize the public utility industry.’’ Grocery Bargains for One Week.

Blanks are now available for use of parties subject to payment of this tax in making return of their lia bility. The law places upon every per son subject to this tax the duty of vol untarily disclosing their liability to the collector and paying the tax, and pro vides severe penalties for failure so to do. Therefore, any person who is sub ject to tax levied by this law should write the collector of internal revenue for necessary blanks upon which to make this return. There is one man whose candidacy should not be ignored, and against whom not a single vote shoud be cast, and that man is Justice Marvin B. Ros enberry, one of the justices of the su preme court of our state, whose name will be found on the judicial ballot to be voted at the April election. Justice Rosenberry has discharged with great credit to himself the duties of supreme justice for more than three years. If during that time he failed in any re spect, his failure would be known to the people of the state. He has not only not failed, but he has demonstrat ed judicial qualities of the very highest order, and acquitted himself so credit ably that few believed, until quite re cently, that any opposition to his can didacy would develope, and when it de veloped many were surprised as well, as disappointed. Now that opposition has developed, it is up to the people of Wisconsin, who early in the state’s his tory established the precedent of re taining sitting judges who have served satisfactorily in office, to take such action as will preserve this precedent. It would be little less than a calamity to our courts and our state if Justice Rosenberry should now be defeated and this precedent ignored. Every voter who believes in retaining capable judges in offiee, and in perpetuating the precedent early established in this state of re-electing such judges and keeping our court out of the quagmire of petty politics and factional bicker ing which lowers them in the estimation of decent citizens, will vote for Justice Rosenberry and thereby lend the sanc tion of his vote to the retention of such precedent and principle. Justice Ros enberry deserves and should have the hearty support of all citizens, regard less of politics, and regardless of any and all factional differences, for if there be one judge who has religiously eschewed factional and partisan politics since election, that judge is Marvin B. Rosenberry. Notice of Dissolution of Partnership of W. T. Pomeroy & Co.* The co-partnership heretofore exist ing between W. T. Pomeroy and W. L.

Merrick, president of the Chicago Association of Commerce, re called that Germany was built up for many years on “the real theory of gov ernment downright control and opera tion of everything, including the men themselves. Year by year the initia tive of the individual and the initiative of the business man was reduced; and I doubt if any of our people knew the ! extent to which the German govern ment was a partner, and controlled the great industries of Germany.” Thus there was built up in Germany a ma chine which had the government at its head. Every individual was a cog, built to function as the government de creed, and barren from thinking or do ing for himself. The American people want nothing of this kind. Resolutions Adopted by the City Federation of Women’s Clubs March 25, 1919 Whereas, The question of license must again be settled on * election day and, Whereas, a year ago as "a food conservation measure the women of Edgerton appealed to the voters, to vote for no license, that Edgerton might do her share in conserving food for our boys at the front, and, Whereas, Grateful to Almighty God for the brighter outlook of the world today, and grateful to our re turning heroes, and to those who have been sacrificed, and believing that there is no more fitting monu ment than a clean and wholesome city, for our returning boys. Therefore Be it Resolved, That the Edgerton Federation of Women’s Clubs appeal to the men of Edgerton to again vote for no license, that our soldiers may see that while they suf fered to make the world safe for de mocracy, that their own people are willing to put aside greed, that their own home town may be kept clean and fit for them to live in. Ears Continue Growing. It is said that throughout one’s life* time one’s ears continue to grow big ger. The ears of a girl, admired per haps for their small size, are fairly large by the time she has reached mid dle age. In old age they may be larger. In any company of people one may no tice that it is the elders who have the big ears. In the very old they are overgrown.—Boston Globe. Real Estate Bargains.

Telephone No. 147 Whetstone in Tree Trunk. While sawing down a large poplar tree on the Weimar farm two sons of Joseph Weimar found their'saw would not penetrate. They began a little higher, and after the tree was down they discovered a whetstone in the heart of the trunk. It is supposed that many years ago, when the tree was a sapling, lumbermen working in the fields laid the stone there and forgot to take it away, and the tree grew around it. — Marietta (Pa.)
