Publication and Printing Office, 101 Fifth Street. Calumet, Michigan. Entered at the Tost Office at Calumet. Michigan, as Second Class Mail Matter. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1909. Thousands of men have cunio up from the lower portion of Michigan to hunt in our woods, comments the Ish peming Iron Ore. It is said that the iinst of them come provided with all they need even to their own kerosene. Wo have teen some of them buyin-r torn meal and syrup, however, which lends the impression that they do not have all they need. Some of the news, papers and peopi,. outside of this pro fession are insisting that the horde which comes annually in increasing numbers has already reached the con dition win re it can be properly de scribed as a plague. " The only enter prises getting any beneiit' 'from them are the railways. It isn't so much that the people of the upper penin sula look for any business from them, but these deer slayers menace the lives of the residents of this region, their high-powered guns throwing lead into the towns, and rmt infrequently into people who happen into the wood.-!. Very often these visiters come here a full month before the open season for shooting deer arrives, nn,i that they kill out of season is no secret. The law should be so amended that her licenses can he procured only in country in which the hunting I tli. done The number of deep permitted hunter should !,.. limited to one. incenses siiouid not ,e sent out until a week before the hunting season. It Would be better to have 11.. shoot- Ing of deer for five years, as this would give mis game a chance. Jt is getting scarcer annually with hunters in creasing. with the gain in number f hunters conies greater fatalitv in human list. th PUBLIC HEALTH. In his annual message to Congress Is it expected that President Taft will recommend the establishment of a new bureau or department of public health. If a sufficient showing Is nude he will recommend the creation of a "department." the head of which will be a cabinet officer. Otherwise h" will probably content himself with lecommeruiing a -bureau" und-r one of the departments now existing. Th rc are .'.lnady nine departments with cabinet officers and a prejudice exists in f'ongr'-ss against Increasing that number. Once a department is create. 1 its field of usefulness, and In cidentally the number of employe and expense of conducting jt. seems to increase by leaps and bounds, i )n the otlor hand, those interested In th questions appertaining to public; health insist that nothing short of an Independent department will serve to protect the health of the nation in an adequate manner, that such work must to carried on Independently and without subservience! to Interests of w calth-prf'ductlon or w calth-aceumu-Jatlon. What view President Taft will take Is as yet unsettled, but he FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS "WOULDNT PAY ME FOR THE RC LIEF I GOT FROM PILES." "For 12 years I suffered with piles, brought on by any strain or hard work. Since using Ilem-P.oid fight month3 ago, I have not had an attack, can ii any labor and eat what I wl.-th without 111 effect. I would not be In my for mer condition for J500." (Signed) Wm.

Apparently tile proposition tJ lax l!ie iron and copper mines of the upper peninsula on their output is not taking as well In the lower part of Michigan as those w ho set out to make it a par amount issue in the campaign of next year'h'-'ped and believed it would, com ments the Mining Journal. It Is sig nificant that no one of the candidates for the gubernatorial nomination has yet deemed it wise to-declare for the change so vehemently advocated bv that unterrifled democratic kicker. Jim Helme. while one of the four now be ing discussed in that connection. Mr. Osborn. has announced himself posi tively and unequivocally against it and that 'without any doseernible Im pairment of his popularity among the voters of the lower peninsula. Nor is this surprising. The people of Michigan over ten years ago de cided to seek a more uniform and equitable system of taxation for all kinds of property than that which had been In use theretofore, and elected to try the ad valorem plan. That plan Is working well in the main, and will work better as time passes and the de tails of the present taxation law are more perfectly worked out. To go back to the mixed methods of former years, when the railroads were taxed on their gross earnings, the farms en their value, and so on anil so forth, would be palpable retrogression. The intelligent voters of the state readily see this, and so they decline to rise to the bait Helnie and others of his ilk have been clumsily dangling before them on a not very skillfully covered democratic hook. The charge Is made by the advocates of a tonnage tax on the mines that, under the present system, they are tin. ilervalii"d for the purpose of taxation. Perhaps some of them are. Well. It Is Just possible that there "re farm and either properties! in the state under valued n the assessment rolls also. What proportion f the personal prop erty in Michigan pays taxe s? A scrut iny of the assessment rolls throughout the state would disclose a startling lack of millionaires in Michigan if li'-,ht assessments under the "personal PrP erty" head w re a real index e.f the personal possessions of the wealthier of our citizens. If some of the mining properties are assessed too low there is a way under the law to raise their valuations, and if there were not one could easily be provided. The re are producing mines up he re into the development of which millions e.f dollars have gone that have never paid, and may never pay, a elol lar to their shareholders. They have bee n w orke d in the hope that some day the y may prove ef value, but up to date they have eaten up money fer those who are exploring them, Instead of yielding even a small return on the e-apital put into them. To place u ton nage tax on these mines would be to odd to a tax en the ir shareholders al ready burdensome, paid In the form of assessments to keep them going, and in many cases would result in closing them down, throwing men out of em ployment and diminishing by whatever value- their output may have the wealth our mines are producing. Quite a list eemld be compiled of copper mines be longing In this class, and not a few iron mining preqiertles are in the same class. The ad valorem system admits of an intelligent and eejultable udjust- ment of values between the mine that Is a high-cost producer and the neigh boring property more fortunately con elltioned whieh cannot be had under the plan of taxing both on their output, and Is preferable because; of its mani fest fairness and proved practicability. The pe-oplo of Michigan, whether they are found above or below the. narrow waterway dividing the two pet ninsulas stand for an hemest deal and fair play, a fact that the prnpetnr-ntn e.f the tonnage tax scheme failed to take Into account. The state Is theirs. In Its entirety and in all Its parts, and they want each and every part e.f It treated like all the others, and all treated Justly.

Unite-el Stnti-H Senator Charles Dick has nr-rlve-d in this city anel opened his cam paign to Hueeeeel himself In thei sen ate. He declares that he Is willing to ro be-fore the pe-ople under the new Hnmsein law, whieh provieles for the nomination eif cnndhhites for the IokIs lature by the pi eiit at primaries. At the primaries next May will be chosen delegates to the oonve-ntln which will name the state, congre-sslemal and jueliclal tickets. Ily dire-ct primary vote must be named tho county tickets In all the counties, and the legislative tickets. Senator Dick declares ho will stand on his recorel as a protectionist. lie further assorts that the tarllT will not be an Issue In the ceunlng Ohio cam paign. In nny case, he says, It will not be the sle Issue. Dick ls going to have strong oppo sition for the scnatorshlp. Charles P. Taft, brother of the president, can and Harry M. Daughcrty. Judge Rob crt V. Taylor of Cleveland has been preimlne-ntly mentioned In connection with tho scnatorshlp, but he declines to become a candidate Since the recent municipal elections In Ohio the politicians ef beUi parties In the state have been formulating plans fer the clectiem of a successeir to Senateir Dick and the nomination of candidates for governor. In the re publican party two factions are figur ing for supremacy. One faction Is composed of the national aelministra tlem forces nml the other consists of those whe have nil along been allied with Dick and ex-senator Foraker. The elemeicrats are Just now In u quandary regarding the geivernorshlp, as Governor Harmon Is not yet ready to announce whether he will stand for a renomlnatlon. Many ef Harmon's closest frlonels lo not hesitate to ex press the belief that he will neit ask feir a reneimtnatlon, particularly since tho manifestation of an organized ef fort made against him by National Committeeman Harvey C. Oarber and the Bryan element. , It Is argued that If the governor should refuse to run be counted on as a candidate, as cm also ex-Governor Myron T. Herrlck again It would put him In better form j f r the democratic pre siilentlal nom ination than if he entereil the race anel suffered defeat. Not in accord with Harmon's pedi cles er with him personally, a sixth e lection as mayor of Cle veland pnb ahly would have tempted Tm U John son te try t j block the Harmon move ment In Ohio, and he could have pre vented the send'ng of a solid Harmon delegation to the national convention. Hut Johnsem's great power in the par ty has been shaken by his defeat for mayor. Fetr years Johnson has had much Influence In the councils of the party. "He-controlled tho stnto con vention at Sandusky in 1102 and forc eel the nomination of Rev.. Herbert I Rigelow for secretary of state. Tho following' "jtar be was successful In nominating himself for governor. De spite his crushing de feat he' managed to retain his powe r through his ability to hold the mayoralty, and only last year he came very clone to forcing the nomination of At lee Pomerene fer gov. crnor over Judson Harmon. "Speaking of the nerve displayed by small beiys," said a man who had Just returned from a trip hjrough the south west, "reminds me of an Incieh-nt that occurred a few months ago In the San ta Ana mountains, In soutlie rn Califor nia. An ll-ye-ar-old boy, a ine-mhe r of a family making their way to theenast, left the camp early one morning to stalk deer. He found tracks, and had followed them until he was live or six miles from camp. In reaching up em a rock he disturbed a huge' rattlesnake? that was sunning itself, and the snake, without warning, struck, wounding the beiy on the middle finger f his rlnht hand. Knowing that unless prompt actlem was taken the wound would prove fatal, the youth placed the (Inner over the muzzle of the gun and pulled the trigger. Waking a ligature above the wound to stop the flow eif Muml. he killed the snake and walke-d hack to camp, where he fainted. The linger was blown off close to his hand, hut he recovered."
