Edgerton - Wisconsin D G. RISTAD - Publisher FRIDAY. JANUARY 14, 1921 The Legislature. In the caucus of the assembly Tues day evening, Riley S. Young of Darien, Walworth county, was nominated for speaker of the house. He won out against William Olson of Monroe, ad ministration candidate. Mr. C. E. Shaffer of Madison was chosen chief clerk, and T. G. Cretney of Madison seargeant-at-arms. The assembly con vened Wednesday at noon. In the Republican senate caucus, Timothy Burke of Green Bay was nom inated president of the senate, Col. O. ' G. Munson of Viroqua chief clerk, and Leo Kelpinski of Milwaukee sergeant at-arms. The formal election took place when the senate convened at noon Wednesday. The Good Roads association of Wis consin announces through its executive secretary that a total of 1461 miles of road in the state were built and im proved during 1920. Of this 264 miles were gravel, macadam and similar type; 623 miles dirt roads graded and drained; 126 miles of sand-clay surfac ing; 88.3 concrete surfacing. For 1921 there is $24,000,000 available for high way construction from all sources. Of this $19,000,000 is for construction and $4,500,000 for maintainance The car rying out of the proposed program for the new year seems feasible as labor and material conditions are improving. Washington Vanderlip, a hard headed American business man, has been in Russia. He was there, not as a political representative of this coun try, but as a businessman looking for business. He was so impressed with the trade advantages to be established in the great Russian republic that he entered into negotiations with the Rus sian government for certain concessions of mines, timber and other natural re sources of the country to run for sixty years, and he had the faith in the pres ent Russian government to pay down good American money to hold these concessions. England and Germany are already on the ground to furnish the Russians with manufactured goods. They know that Russia has platinum, gold, furs and other valuable goods to exchange for all the manufactured goods they can furnish. Vanderlip says that America may have a billion dollar trade every year with Russia. Is it not time that our government get a move on itself and establish trade rela tions with Russia? American agricul tural machinery is well and favorably known in the vast republic. With the inauguration ceremonies over at Madison, the new administra tion is in the saddle. Mr. E. L. Philipp retires to private life. He bore the burden of one of the most trying per iods which the state has had to pass through, and will be remembered as the war-governor of the state. The new governor, Mr. Blaine, has assumed the responsibilities of guiding the af fairs of the state during the recon struction period, which now, with its perplexities and difficulties, is upon us. The new governor i3 familiar with the business of the state government; he assumes the duties of the office with a large popular backing, and all good citizens of the state, whether Mr. Blaine was their choice or not, will give him the fullest support and wish him and his administration the wis dom and good fortune to guide the state on its course during the next two years in a manner to uphold the honor of commonwealth, further its welfare, and reflect credit upon the administra tion for patriotic, just and unselfish ser vice. Nineteen twenty-one —and go to it. It is up to everybody to make, not resolutions, but resolute endeavor to do his very best. A great European statesman who at one time was honor ed by a procession which came to his residence to shout their approval of some things be had done for the nation in an hour of great national need, met his enthusiastic and noisy countrymen with the following admonition; “Don’t waste your breath shouting; go home, go to work, and mind your own busi ness!’’ The years just back of us have upset our judgment, impeded our ef ficiency, filled us with notions of get ting much in return for little service, and given us an appetite for a lot of things that in the long run we can not afford. The last months have warned us that the days of joyriding are about over, and that the time of conservative “taking stock” of our as sets is upon us Wages are going to be lower in fields where they were in flated; in other fields they will continue in force, because they were increased only moderately, the price of goods must be adjusted to the buying power of the consumers, speculation must cease, “easy money” has had its day for some time to come. Normal con ditions will call for normal service, normal remuneration, and normal judg ment in the use of one’s earnings. It is no time to whimper; it is time to get down to honest work, honest pay, and honest spending. In the national end of the readjustment there are some things that should be done to help make the general business situation easier to cope with. Congress should put all Liberty bonds where they were at the time when we bought them, Next, the debt that is now owed us by Eu rope should be guaranteed in some way so the 810,000,900,000 they owe us be come an asset instead of a liability. Perhaps it might be done by having England, France and our other debtors issue bonds which the government of the U. S. would be willing to guaran tee, and then sell them. Thus our gov ernment could collect the debt and use it to pay its own debts, and reduce the current expenses of the government, ease the tax burden, and mend our finances generally. Above all, let the new year find us with new courage, new willingness, and renewed common sense. Wanted— Dealer to represent fast selling, popular priced, six automobile.

Whatever you say, in a whisper or clear, Say nothing you would not like Jesus to hear. Whatever you read, though the page may allure, Read nothing unless you are sure, Consternation would not be seen in your look, If God should say solemnly, “Show Me that book.” Whatever you write with haste or with heed, Write nothing you would not like Him to read.

Vespers at 4:30. Christian Endeavor at 7:00. , The “Girls’ Sunday” service at the Congregational Church next Sunday morning will be a unique form of worship. The delegates to the recent Older Girls’ Conference at Oshkosh brought the idea back with them, and entered into plans with enthus iasm. The service will be conducted all through by the girls themselves. Mr. Atkins will give a short talk, but the rest will be in the- direct charge of the various (girls’ organi zations. In this way, the recognition of the mutual responsibilities of the church and its young people will be given concrete expression. Although it is called “Girls’ Sunday,” everyone is most warmly urged to be present. C. L. Atkins. P p* • Common Council Proceedings. i Edgerton, Wis., Jan. 3, 1921.
