(From a Staff Correspondent.) Milwaukee, Wis., September 15—Allen P.
Warden, chairman of the Democratic State Central Committee of Wisconsin, to-day .outlined the political ^situation here for the correspondent of the Eagle, a~s follows":"
"There are many signs which give great promise of Democratic success in Wiscon- sin this fall—and this observation applies both to the national and the state ticket. In the first place It should be clearly held tn mind that Wisconsin has a very: large foreign population, mainly German and Scandinavian. .Metabers of both these graces are Invariably thrifty and forehanded. Those public matters which bear directly upon their individual'financial affairs are very- carefully -considered. Most of them have been raised under military govern- ments and are familiar from hard and bit- ter experience with the hardships and pri- vations that fall upon thes shoulders oF a people burdened with taxation for military purposes. Consequently they are very sen- «lHv» nn tha cpnrp of taxation in general. and especially of taxation for naval arid military establishment. - They have had enough of that sort of thing on the other tldo of the water and do not' propose to tako' any chance of repeating the experience ih their new home over here. """"There Is no doubt of the existence of a general and common conviction among this class of citizens that President Roose- velt Is Inclined to extend our naval and
"military establishments, touch beyond their present size and- to the proportions of a great military power in the sense In which that .term is used in the monarchies 'of
"Europe. ~At"any"'rater - they are "convinced th»t the President's tendencies are. in that

As I-nm alwayB interested in your arti- cles on "Recent: Exploits of Science, and In* vention," I thought I would call your atten- tion to a new device which.no doubt will Interest many of the readers of the Eagle and especially those who travel extensively on railroads. . . . : - . . . - . -
The device I refer to is a new coupling for connecting airbrake hose oh trains. The present Westlnghouse airbrake coupling Is dependent On ^ the thoughtfulnesS Of the bpakenian when coupling the,-air, hose., and after (he hose of two cars is coupled lip /he must rempr

"While they are very patriotic, they are not at all ambitious to see this countsy cut a. wide swath' in international affairs. They feel-that.,thls-io a.good deal- of a-na t ionas it now-Stands, without any colonial or in- sular extensions.
"Another strong reason for believing that the present campaign offers a splendid op- portunity for swinging-.Wieconsin into -the Democratic column is the\almost total and universal kck of enthusiasm for Mr. Roose- velt among the Republicans of the state. This indifference to the head of the national ticket is everywhere apparent and Is ad- mit.te.d.Jby; Republicans, .without regard to tbelr factional allegiance.

A young woman, to ;day, In Virginia, only 22 years .of ago, Is nothing moro than a "living death.". Attacked by a negro, who confessed and was hung without qeremony.
it Is all very well to sit calmly here at the North and say: "Qh, well! tho law should be permitted to take Its course." But let ft man enter your house, attack your daughter. What then?
To atT and any, who defend such rascals, one can only repeat the old -proverb, lri poor,'French, "Honl solt quo mat y pense."
