Kntered at the Post Office at Calumet, Michigan, as Second Class Mall Matter FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER, 16, 1910. Republican politics In Maine are neither Hale nor hearty Just now. If Wellman succeeds in flying acrosa the Atlantic, all his failures to reach the pole will be forgiven. Mr. Hemans will make mine taxa tion the issue. How delighted the Democrats of the upper peninsula will be! Down In South Carolina a hen that sings has been discovered. This may have some effect on the canary bird market, but it isn't going to reduce the price of eggs. It Is estimated that the earth weighs seven trillion tons, or there abouts. And a lot of people you meet on .the street look as if they had the whole weight of it on their shoulders. The number of one-time popular actresses who are reported to be in destitute circumstances should serve to remind thi young ktdi? of, the land who are enamored of a stage career that "all Is not gold that glitters, especially behind the footlights. Ai Pennsylvania alchemist whose announcement that he could manu facture silver from baser metals tirrd world interest recently, failed to prove his claim when creditors de scended upon him, but his line of re search will doubtless continue to at tract others. Prosecuting Attorney Mac-Donald Hecured five convictions out of the six criminal cases tried at this term of circuit court, and wound up the criminal list with unusual dispatch. Twenty-two cases constituted the calendar and court has been In ses sion only two weeks. The prosecu tor Is making a record to be proud cf. The Issues in Maine, bo far as they were clean cut, wore chiefly state issues, such as the Sturgis law, the high cost of government and the ma chine back of the governor. Dissat isfaction with the Sturgls prohibitory law lias been growing for years, nnd this year It acted as a magnet to .draw around It all other kinds of dls satisfaction felt against the Repub leans and dislodge them from their time-honored position at Augusta, Some of the Prohibitionists them selves have felt that it would be best to let the people of Maine reconsider the prohibition law and decide how to be rid of the present demoralizing sit uatlon. Illinois Is the home of "Uncle Joe Cannon, so it Isn't surprising that the Progressives were successful In only three out of twenty-five con jrresslonal districts yesterday. Can nonlsm seems to be almost, as ipu lar as ever there, deplte the fact that in Michigan, Kansas and Washington the Progressives have triumphed Nevertheless even In Illinois the worm ta - txMrlnnlncr. to turn for the Regu lars. Including "Uncle Joe. were nominated by greatly reduced plu ralities. Rut the thing most people will be unable to figure out and ap ply a reason for la the success of three out of four Indicted stato leg islators. Their renomlnatlon Is In deed a surprise. They are men about whom ausplclon- still hovers and are not of the type In whom the people can put their whole trust. The only conclusion that can be reached In re jrard to their endorsement ia that the pertple of Illinois are not very par ticular who represent them In their legislative halls. Rut to people with out th atate the results are dis appointing. If present plana of the treasury de partment curry the country may pre pare Itself for Important changes In the ordinary 1ank notes In circulation, both in design and size. The depart ment ha." felt for some time that the present paper currcmy Is unsatisfac tory, that tho system of design is to chaotic and that the tllln themselves ire too large to be handled convenient ly and It has requested the opinions of bankers and expert money handlers on the proposed changes. TherV are at present no lc than 19 portrait and historic designs appear ing on current Issues of tank notes. These- have been selected according U no system of historic nlgnllK an?e and they .erve no purpose In Identify ing the notes. The p. Ian is to reduce the number of dcvln to nine, to h ive l hem of progressive historic nie inlni? ; and to let each be characteristic of one denomination. Thus the, saino por trait would always appear on a bill of the same denomination and would be an aid to the mony handler In quick ly and accurately recognizing the char acter of the bill. In size it U claimed that the present ' mils are ho as to te umMcitiy. i no present "paper currency is 7. 28 Inches Ion sr by 3.1 broad. It Is proposed to reduce It to six inches by two and a half. Bxperlment with bills of this size has yielded very satisfactory results, it Is claimed. W.htle the hanges are Intended to provide a more artistic, better system atized and more convenient form of currency they are a No In line with the policy of economy which Is being prac ticed by the present administration. It Is estimated thnt the reduction In the size of the bills will nave the depart ment nearly $613,000 annually, due to decreased cost of. iaper, printing, en graving and for the various processes of manufacture. On the popular side It Is thought the smaller notes would be carried flat. In stead of being folded as are the present note, 'and that they could be handled more easily by bank clerks and others an.l would not cramp the hands of those handling quantities of them, as do the notes at present In circulation. One difficulty of putting the ch:nge Into effect Is the fact that the wallets and cash drawers of the country are built to fit the present currency. There promises for a time, also. If the pres ent plans carry, to be a possible ton- fusion due to the circulation at the same time of currency of two sizes, although this would gradually adjust itself. Mine taxation, will bo the Issue of tho Michigan Democrats In the state campaign. It was the only one left for them to seize upon, but we are wondering how the Democrats of the upper peninsula will receive the news. Mr. Hemans, we believe, will have scanty picking In this neck of the woods, for the 'Democrats of the north country are as much op posed to higher taxation of the mines as are the Repub licans, and there is no doubt Fifth that thu posltlou Mr. Hemans and M louvr ' H niiisuU friends have taken will 'be u bit embarrassing, especial ly to Uiube Demoeiuts of Ut U. i' who are running for of flee. It mukes Republicans biniie, but the Demoo ure not allowing their facial muscles to tclux. It's no joke to them. (letting rlrfht uowu to brass tacks the Democrats of the upper penin sula uie in.'

Republican tick- et. We believe many uf them will J " .. la(u,r once they understand 1 that Heliums will make his light on mine taxation. Mr. ostium long ago came out j against a t linage tax, and the pco- j pie of the state know where he stands i nnd the reasons therefor. Osbora be. i lieves in equitable taxation of farms, j mines and ail other property, and not ;( in the signalling out of any class of . property for specific, unfair taxation. Jle stands as a champion of the ad valorem s.vstem, which Is the squurcst method of taxation. Mr. Hemans can. not hope to get many votes In the upper peninsula on his mining tax issue, and the Republicans will take pains to advertise his views on this subject, even though he may choose to Ignore it, while he is on his vote getting chase in the U.

Would You Like a Peek at ti r, i. .' the New Fall "Arrivals? are just opening up our Fall goods the fifst shipments. There is one big case of SINCERITY CLOTHES which we have just finished unpacking, assorting and pricing. They are all Up in the cabinets ready for inspection and such clothes as was never our good fortune to see be fore. They are marvels in the ready-to-wear tailoring line. If you don't agree with us, either your taste or ours is at fault. Then there is another shipment of the' new Fall colors and weaves in neckwear. We will let it talk for itself. The fact ' that it comes from one of the greatest neckwear houses may haye,something to do with its attrac tiveness. 1 Then there are the new hats, all ready for inspection a trifle early for most of you, perhaps, but it will take you a little while to get used to your self in a new style after wearing light weights and light colors all summer; in short, everything in the store has an air of newness and novelty, and the man who wants to be first on the ground will be as enthusiastic over our new styles as we are ourselves. Although you will find some of the things in the windows, most of them we are holding for a little later; but if you come in and ask for them we will gladly show them to you. ".'.
