Somk of the newspapers and
newspaper correspondents of the
upper peninsula are, seemingly,
very anxious to see a rupture
'twixt labor and capital in this
region. Don't intimate the pos
sibility of such a thing, gentle
men, it would be a calamity in
every sense of the word,
and the individual who en
courages a strike at this time,
or "when shipping . begins," is
the enemy of the workingman.
pursuing at Washington is to fur
nish the opposition with a little
campaign thunder. Perhaps
that is not a bad move, for the
Democrats were so effectually at
sea as to what to fight on in the
coming campaign that the few
straws thrown out by the hair
splitterr, have been eageily
grasped at, and it might as well
be that as something else. It's
amusing to hear these fellows
tell how the Republican party is
going to the dogs, departing
from the ways of its" originators,
and a lot of such rot. It is very
curious if the Republican party,
which has done so much in the
past, has solved all the knotty
and intricate questions that have
arisen m the country s history ,
has run amuck this time. The
theorists are having their
innings. As usual they "sec
things" and are painting their
visions with effect, but soon the
practical man in the Republican
party will assert himself as ever
and our hair-splitters will then
find their occupation gone and
their only remuneration for all
th eir efforts some cheap politica

It is reported that l'intfrco is
to opposo McMillan as a candi
date for U. S. Senator. No
better good fortune could befall
Mr. McMillan than that of
having Pingree opposo him. A
short timo ago Mr. 1. gave out
the statement that in caso 1). M.
Ferry was nominated for (lover
nor ho would buck him on an
independent ticket and immedi
ately Ferry began to show
strength until today ho is forging
to the front and stands tko best
chanco of getting the nomination.
Tm: proposition that came up
before congress after the presi
dent had sent in his message
recommending free trade va
whether tho government would
by legislation aid syndicates to
enrich themselves at the expense
of tho nativo of Puerto Rico.
Thoso syndicates had bought up
tho products of Pour to Kico and
put them in store houses in ex
pectation that ' this, government
would admit them freo of duty.
There were public improvements
inado and money was needed to
pay for them. The Puerto
Kicans bad already sold their
products to syndicate specula
tors, leaving nothing but their
homes to bo taxed.
Tm: greatest effect of the hue
and cry that is being made 'by a
few Republicans against the
policy which the leaders are
Oni: of tho conditions upon
which the tax cases were settled
last Monday was that, in the
future, tho monies raised are to
bo paid out for legitimate pur
poses. This compact was enter
ed into between tho county
otlieials and M. .1. Sherwood and
that it will bo kept, and kept to
tho letter, there is not the hast
doubt. . Immediately following
tho coining election Mr. Sher
wood will notify every supervi
sor in the county that if remun
eration for services as supervi
sor are I alien at a rate to exceed
$V(). per year ho will
cause their at rest and tho
prosecuting attorney has g'.von
his word that ho will prose
cute any person against whom
Mr. Sherwcod brings a caso.
In other words, in place of light
ing taxes in tho future Mr.
Sherwood proposes to tight those
who misappropriate th() funds
and cause excessive taxes. It is
a- move in tho right direction
and in it Mr. Sherwood will
have the sympathy and support
of tho people whereas under old
conditions ho had only their
enmity. This is tho lino of pro
ceeduro that tho Taxpayers'
Association should have taken a
long time ago. There is no ex
cuso for tho crippling of our
schools and municipalities by a
nonpayment of taxes because
.some of tho otlieials take more
money than tho law allows.
Tho way to slop it is to tight tho
individuals, not punish the wholo
Tho amount stated is good
pay for a supervisor and is more
than the statute allows but Mr.
Sherwood is not careful to stint
a man to tho least possible
amount. Ho is willing to allow
twice the natural amount but no
further. Wo also have Mr.
Sherwood's wort I that the school
taxes which he refused to pay
this year will be paid providing
some lit t To concessions' are made
in the Hue of equalisation,
