The communication in the last issue
of the Post, over the signature of A.
Westphal, in which the writer sadly
labors to answer our article in last
week's issue on the "ferry question,"
forcibly reminds us of a story that is
told on a preacher whoupon a certain oc
casion, when a parishioner complained
of having had his chickens stolen, took
up the Bible and informed the congre
gation that he would hurl it at the
guilty culprit, and, when going
through the motion of throwing the
missile, the thief dodged under the
pew. The old chronic agitator's con
science must certainly have told him
that he was one of the "certain class of
people who are continually raising
questions, and agitating new projects
that constantly keep the community in
a furor or he would not have found
it necessary to come out in a lengthy
article in his own defence. He does
not endeavor to deny that he and his
crew have been engaged in the con-Bates,
temptable business we alluded to, but
claims it is their right. The REVIEW
certainly has no objections to any citi
zen agitating projects or circulating
petitions for any plausible object, but
to circulate petitions and solicit signa
tures with misstatements, and misrep
resentations, with no other earthly ob
ject than to be.contrary, to rob the city
treasury of six or seven hundred dol
lars for the benefit of two or three in
dividuals, and to obstruct the proper
channel of local legislation, is abomi
nable to say the least, and cannot but
work to the detriment of the commu
nity at large. In his ferry project he
endeavored to mislead the people by
claiming that the city conncil con
templated building a pontoon bridge,
for which the people should be charged
the privilege of crossing. He, and
those that trail with him, knew very
well that the city council had not even
thought of such a thing, and he cer
tainly must think that the people have
but little confidence in the members of
the council, to endeavor to make them
bejieve such a flimsy stoiy. His pro
position, simmered down a nut-shell,
was that six or seven hundred dollars
should be taken out of the city treasury
and presented to the several ferry own
eis, and that the people coming here to
trade should be taxed another 10 cents,
each time they come, for the benefit of
these men. Does he call this progress?
A blind man might see who the pro
position intends to benefit. Certainly
not the faimers. When a change is
made it will be made for a free bridge,
and not for the old ferry system that
has been discarded years ago.
We are glad to be assured that the
'Buerger Verein" is not a myth, that
it is composed of bonafide citizens with
no hostile intentions. But if they do
not commit some rash ant it certainly
will not be the fault of fidgety old W.end
and his adjutant.
The closing flourish of his epistle is as
little as the man himself, and in ans
wer we would merely say that all the
medecines he has ever bought of
would not have physicked a flea.
At a most unfortunate time it has
been asceitained that the proceduie at
the time our school district was organ
ized was not quite according to law.
It appeals that the call for the meeting
at which the district was organized
was only published ten days, when the
law provided that it should be pub
lished twenty days. While the dis
trict is legally enough organized for all
common purposes, this flaw would pre
vent the Board of Education from dis
posing of the bonds,| to be issued for
the erection of the new school house, to
advantage and a call has accordingly
been issued for a meeting, to be held at
Turner Hall, next Monday, for the pur
pose of re-oiganizing the district We
say that this irregular procedure has
been discovered at a most unfortunate
time, because, the delay occasioned by
the le-organization of the district will
make it doubtful whether the building
can be completed this season and be.the
cause we understand that there are a
paity of men the city who, because
contract was not awarded to the
New Ulm bidder, propose to overthrow
the whole action of the board, and
some even declare that the building
not be built at all.
The Board of Education is composed
of honorable men, men who have the
welfare of the district at heart, and
under the circumstances they could
have done nothing else than to award
the contiact to the lowest bidder, who
was over $3,000 lower than
Berndt and Co., of this city, and their
action will receive the endorsement of
eveiy good citizen. We would appeal
to the better judgement of those that
are unjustly dissatisfied with the action
of the board, to look at the matter in a
bussiness-Iike manner, and they cannot
but sustain the action of the board,
The Iberia boys speak in highly ci
plimentary terms of the treatment
they received at the hands of the New
Ulm boys.' We understand that anoth
er game has been arranged, to come
off at Sleepy Eye, at some future day.

A good story of a ludicrous attempt
of suicide comes to us from -Sigel town.
It appears that a farmer of the above
named town, whose name might com
mence with the letter P, and who has
been in the habit of abusing his wife
and family on divers occasions, deliver
ed some steers in New Ulm, a week ago
last Monday. After having disposed
of hia steers he proceeded to invest the
proceeds in lager, but having filled up
to his fullest capacity he proceded on
his way home. By the time he reached
his domicile he had sobered up enough
to realize what a fool he had been
making of himself, and in consequence
he felt ugly, and at once began to vent
his ugliness upon his family who stood
it as long as they could and then left
the house, and sought refuge in the
brush close by. Now comes the laugh
able part of this story. Finding him
self left alone, and no doubt wishing to
gam the sympathy of those he had dri
ven pell mell from the house, he load
ed his gun, with a determination to
his miserable life.
The gun being loaded he proceeded
in fiont of the house, divested himself
of his shoes, placed the but of the gun'
on the ground, the muzzle over his
shouldei, and endeavored to pull the
trigger with his big toe. But it was
no go. Either the guard over the trig
der was too small or his toe was too
laige. At least he couldn't get it near
the trigger. Looking around to see if
any spectators were about,, he stooped
down, the muzzle still over his should
er, and pulled the trigger with his
finger. At the discharge of the gun
he fell over backwardssober.
The self-binder is now a complete sue-

shop. Mr. August Wangurun, the
proprietor, seems to be the man that
can guarantee a good fit every time. 1
