These young ladies have each won a silver and a smill gold medal and will now com- pete for the bightst prize in the series except tbe diamond medal. Elocutionists and tem- perance workers from all parts of the state are expected, and the event is looked for- ward to with great interest. ns VB. Wheelmen. There was a very large attendance at the meeting of tho Waukesha Wheelmen on Tuesday evening, but there were enough present to draft out a set of rules and regula- tions which has received thu signature of all the bicyclers in the village. These regula- tions require that the sidewalks on the Busi- ness streets shall not bo used as thorough- fares for wheels, and also stipulate that the signers to the document will use tha utmost discretion as to their use of the sidewalks in other parts of the village. This is a sensible move, and it will 'obviate the necessity of ordinances by tbe village Board. Pedes- trians have the- first right to the.uss of tbe sidewalks, and their rights should be rigi ly enforced. If they will amicably share their rights with wheelmen on certain streets it is better all around. _ Mud, Stonox iimd Hlood. The members of tbe -Republic. u Wide Awake ciub are feeling pretty sore as .the result, of the. demonstration made Thursday evening, and the hoodlum treatment they received at the hands of fifty or so ruffans, who attacked them in their line of march with stones and mud, but who would not come up to the scratch and measure their re- spective powers in a hand-to-hand encounter. The club had torches, two drums and a fife and carried transparencies, and were march- ing in line like well-drilled soldiers, making no more disturbance than is warantable in a political parade. A baud of what may de- velop into Democratic voters, followed in their wake, threw stouos and mud, broke torches and transparencies and laid opsn a few youthful heads. Forays were made' by tho Hoard followers and sorue of che little rascals were soundly chastised, but as the main body sought safety in flight the punish- ment fell far short of its rightful measure. The friends of Harry Prindle, whose head is badly cut, are looking for the one who threw the stone, but it-is probable that the culprit will escape the just reward of such an out- rageou-' conduct. The hoodlum element all shouted for Peck. It is quite possible that .Mr. Peck would have disclaimed his adher- ents had he witnessed the outrage.

The registration list in the several voting precincts show a total of persons en- titled to vote. This is an increase of 330 votes in two yeirs, or an addition of in our population in the Same period. These figures are not borne out by the late census report and the question suggests itself: Have the registration lists been stuff- ed? Evidently there is an unusual floating copulation in Waukesha at the present, and t behooves those interested to keep a sharp ookout that no man votes who is not en- titled to. Tbe "nimble at the caucus" crowd are ex- ceedingly active. Look out for them and arrest any man who attempts to commit perjury at the polls. IS THERE CROOKEDNESS' WAUKESHA BOOMING FROM A REG- ISTRATION STANDPOINT. SHAKESPEAREAN REPLY. Democratic Demagogue JFrom Church, Not Politics. The following is one of the replies sent to Boss Koerner's printed interrogation: KBWAUTTEE, Wis., Oct. 34, Chris Koerner, Milwaukee, Wis., DEAiiSiR: I am in receipt of a. Jotter signed by yourself asking if I am for the repeal of the so-culled Bennett law, and statiug that you wish to know, as I am a candidate for the office ot' clerk of Circut court. I presume you mean Circuit court, at least I learned to spell it that way in the public schools, to which, permit me to say, I owe all that I am or ex- pect to as an American citizen. I fail to see wherein my opinion of the Bennett law affects my competency to prop- the business of'the office for which I am honored by a nomination, but. to gratify your idle and impertinent curios- ity, I-will inform you that I am for the Ben- ni-tt law first, last, and all the time. I am for education and intelligence as opposed to ifrnorauce aod superstition. I am for the uioeteath century ideas as opposed to the line of thought and argument used in tho. six- teenth century. lam for the education of children in the language of the land in which ihoy expect to live ana die, do business, and exercise the rights of citizens. I urn a Ger- man Lutheran. In love of mother church and the traditions of the of my fathers, I yield first place to you or no other. But I solemnly protest against the use of my church as a political machiue by a few de- politicians like yourself.' I will take my religion from my mother church, but not my politics. But whv do you ask me this quoscion? Du you expect to frighien me with a threat? Do yoa expeot to coerca my conscience? Do you expoct I will answer you and perjure my soul with a lie that I am op- posed to this law in hopes of getting the votes of your followers? Is this'the liberty of conscience and personal freedom of which you prate? You, who hold over me the pa- vengeance, of my church, to talk so ;libly of paternalism and liberty of con I resent your impudence, deny vour rieht to coerce my opinion, and declare myself unalterably opposed to your system of political campaigning. Yours very truly, HENRY L. FENSEL. Obituary Mention. Daisy Belle Bairtil, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Baird, formerly of Chicago, passed away Thursday morning, after a >rief illness of five days, of Diphtheria. The funeral took place Thursday tho family residence, Lincoln avenue. A previous UarlinEr from us has gone, A voice we loved is stilled. A plact- is vacant in our homo Which never can be filled. Chicago papers please cop_y. On Friday, Oct. 24, 1800, there passed to his reward, at the age of 73 years, W. L. Wright, ono of the early settlers of the coun- ty. He was of Scotch descent, and was the chief support of the Reformed. Presbyterian church, near his home, the only one of this denomination in the, state. He was very lib- eral, as is shown in his repeated gifts to Car- roll College, and churches of the nn faith. Mr. Wright came to Waukeiha in S45 and has lived hero continuouslly ever since. He leaves a widow and a son and laughter-to mourn his loss, also a large num- ber of our old citizens who in him had a valued friend. His funeral on .Sunday was very largely attended- Mr. Had field's Narrow Escapu. Quite a spirited runaway occurred on Tuesday, resulting in the complete demoli- tion of two buggies, but happily, doing no Teat barm to drivers of either, or the 'earns attached to the vehicles. Our respected ;ovrasman, J. J. Hadfield, was driving down Broadway with the tugs hitched long, so that the neckyoke slipped off the tongue. The horses were traveling at a; rapid rate and were surprised to find the tongue plow- .ng along the ground between them. When they reached the bridge the swayin? tongue struck the center structure, completely sliver- ng it and separating it from the buggy. A ;ew plunges of the horses and the buggy box was thrown gently aside in which Mr. Had- field sat perfectly unconcerned. With the of a slight bruise on the head the ;entleman is unharmed. The team .also escaped injury, but the buggy'was scattered over a large.part of the street: During, th jrogrr-ss of the work of destruction, another ggy which chanced to come in the way was disposed-of unceremoniously and is at the wagon shop for repairs.

A good deal of amusement was during Mr. Saturday night by a gentleman who claims to b'e deeply inter ested in' section 1 of the Bennett law and de sired Mr. Kolley's interpretation of the para graph. Tho speaker complied, or attempted to, do so, but was continually interrupted by his interlocutor who seemed to believe that more good could be accomplished by both talking at the same time. 'A half horn- was spent in this way diversified by 'terse suggestions' from the audience vho were ready to furnish amount of assistance to Mr. Kelly if he neaded any, which he' did not. An attempt was made to preserve order which was successful after some delay, and Mr. Kelly continued his speech without further interruption. The little altercation which he took in the most friendly spirit, erved" Mr. Kelly, as an elixir, and he con- tinued his talk with renewed vigor and with ire and eloquence lacking in the earlier part if the address. He improved the oppor- unity to show the courtesy of the gentleman and the ability of the Orator, and regarded be iuterruptiou as a little pleisantry which he turned to his own advantage. V Voters in the Second Assembly District hould make sure that they cast their ballot or 0. L. Rosenkrans for member of Assem- )ly. He is a man of executive ability, arge business experience, and possesses a knowlege of state and national affairs second ;o no roan in Wisconsin. He will do honor to Waukesha connty and to the entire state. He is sound on all questions relating to the best interests of the government Ha can do much good for Waukesha county, and if elected will be heard from to the gratifi- cation of every taxpayer, whether Republi- can or Democratic. His competitor, M. A. Place, is an honorable, upright farmer, but (is an aspirant for the position of member of the Aisambly, there 'is no comparison be- tween the two men. V There are several reasons why Chas. Van Brunt should be elected sheriff of "Waukesha connty. He is eminently qualified, having served as deputy for four years. He is a squire-toed Republican and can1 be found true-blue, first, last and all the time. Two years ago ho lacked but a few votes as nomi- nee for sheriff, but after tho choice of the convention fell upon W. S. Parsons, Mr. Van Brunt cordially grasped him by the land, rolled up his sleeves and worked like a nai'er for his election. There is never any danger iii casting your ballot for a true man, eminently qualified for the. position he seeks, as is Mr. Van Brunt. V It is not necessory to ugain enumerate the ndividual worth of each Republican candi- date on the county ticket. All have had ex- perience in the different positions which ,uey will be called upon to fill, and each one ihould receive the hearty support of every ;rue Republican. No petty jealousies should nterfere with the sentiment herein express- ed; no Republican should do aught to iuter- 'ere in any way with tho chancea of the elec- tion of every Ropablicin on the county tick- et. Let it be left with Democrats to cater- vaul. One of the most prominent nominees ever placed before the people of Waukesha coun- y for a position in the state legislature is the Hon. F. H. Putney. Ho is a gentleman and scholar, thoroughly posted on the affairs of state, and last, but not least, ho is an hon- sst man whoso fair name cannot be smirched by the foul breath of calumny. He is as (ar above the Democrats who attenpt to throw mud at him as an honest man is above a coundrel. V No cleaner ever sought the suffrages if the people than. Hon. Jesse Stonp, of Watertown, the candidate for state sona tor n the twenty-third district, which includes he Second Assembly district of VVaukeiha ounty. He will secure the entire Republi- an vote, besides many from the opposite party. V It is rumorei that a small contingent of he English faction are now attending night chool under the 'provisions of the Bennett aw to learn the rudimentary principles of he English language, so that they may be able to say "eggs" instead of "heggs" and 'horse" instead of "orse." Chris. Gaynor, the Democratic candidate or sheriff, wore a little school-house butlon n Waukesha tho other day as the resu't of a iractioal joke, played upon him by Repub- ican friends. Chris thought it was "loaded" and took it off, V No candidate in this county will have a walk-away next Tuesday. Guessers on the >olitical situation are up a stump. They Know not whether to jump or to stand still. V One of our clearest election guessers sums up the political situation" in this manner: Would: not be surprised to hear of Hoard's election by majority." According to street corner authority, the only real, genuine hustlers left in the Demo- cratic party are Matt. Regan, Pat Buckley ,nd Counselor Harrington. V No voter should be deceived by any fool- sh clap trap, or mud-throwing circulars ssue-by the Democrats in their usual left handed manner. An elegant stock of Masonic Charms nt O. L.

Season tickets for the bal- ance of the course may be purchased for one ollar, at any of the drugstores. The approaching entertainment by Prank Jeard is unique, original and humorous. Out of innumerable press notices we select he following: 'l The' caricature lecture by Frank Beard, Ssq., of New York was unusually well at- ended. He held his audience spellbound to he close, and a more delighted audience ever left the auditorium. His lecture, vbich was freely illustrated by. caricatures rawn at the moment, was brilliant with the sparks of his happy wit, und yet for those who preferred the sober thoughts there was ,n abundant supply. As an artist, Mr. Jeard, in his branch stands .peerless, and he s entertaining and accomplished as a lectur- r. His lectures ever abound with original noughts, and hie manners and expressions are free from the hackneyed Courier. Hr. Beard gave a short lecture, freely il- ustratdng it with his crayons. Ha always raws the largest crowd 'of the day when he peaks, and so, naturally enough, the audi- orium was packed to hear. ua (S. Y.)

At a date before history tho art of cotton manufacture was carried from India to Assyria and'Egypt; butit'-.vas not until the thirteenth century that the cotton plant was introduced into southern' Europe, where its wool was at first to make paper.
