While Reno was performing to a good
sized audience in Springfield last Wed
nesday night, some young boys turned
out the lights in the allway, blockaded
the doois and then gave the alaim of
fire. The audience was made up mostly
of women and children, and the fright
that prevailed can only be imagined.
Several fainted, and some were even
bruised in the lush. The boys who did
the work were discovered, but escaped
with merely a lecture, whereas they
should have been punished so as to re
member it for along time to come.
The Dramatic Section was greeted
with a splendid audience Sunday even
ing and they deserved it. The play was
one that required ability to present in
a proper manner, and the mere fact that
the audience listened attentively for four
hours shows that their efforts were appre
ciated. Capt. Steinhauser as Tjelda did
remarkably well and Hugo Fischer as
Advocate Berendt was cool, easy and
determined—just such a man as Bjorn
son must have intended him to be. Mrs.
Albert Seiter had a difficult role but ac
quitted herself with credit, as did also
Mrs. Hugo Fischer as Signe. This is
likewise true of Mrs. Steinhauser, and as
for Messrs. Brandt, Koch and Spoerhase
they gave to their various parts a por
trayal that added much to the merit of
the plav as a whole. A deep moral at
taches to the plot and the players did
not fail to bring it out.
A Citizens Caucus was held at Turner
Hall Friday evening and was largely at
tended. Capt. Steinhauser called the
meeting to order and a division was im
mediately made into ward caucuses.
The First ward meeting was presided
over by Ernst Brandt with Gottleib
Schmidt as secretary. Nominations for
alderman were called for and the names
of Gottleib Schmidt and Herman
Nagel were presented. The ballot
resulted in favor of Schmidt and
he was declared the nominee. In
theSecond ward meeting Jacob Klossnei's
name was the only one suggested and he
was accorded a unanimous and enthusias
tic nomination. In the Third Chas. Brust
was chairman and W. T. Eckstein secre
tary. Werner Boesch and Otto Tappe
were nominated and the former chosen
as the candidate. The caucuses through
out were harmonious and everybody felt
that an excellent ticket had been placed
in the field—one that deserves to win on
evtry reasonable ground.
A transfer of bear meat was made in
this city last Friday when Emil Schmahls
bear passed into the possession of Adolph
Schell, the big New Ulm brewer. The
bear has been fasting for a long time
and his physical constitution has been
depleted of a great many pounds of
flesh as a result, and the owner had no
desire to refatten the animal, after the
latter went to sleep on him just before
he was ready to serve in steaks last fall.
The bear was arousod from his slumbers
on ground hog day and after failing to
catch a squint of the sun's rays dozed off
again and-did not wake until last week
just before Schell appeared in this city.
The latter wanted him for his park in
New Ulm. The^par-k contains other
animals of the forest, and is quite a re
sort for New Ulmites and visitors on
Sundays as well as other days. Schell
made Mr. Schmahl a good offer for the
animal and it was immediately accepted.
Mr. Bear has already entered the pre
cincts of Schell's Park and makes an
other important feature to the New Ulm

The following special, concerning oui
old friend Gresham at St. Peter, was
sent out from Washington Thursday af
ternoon A protest has been received
at the postoffice department from Dem
ocrats at St, Peter, Minn., against the
action of Postmaster-General Bissell in
retaining William A. Gresham, a brother
of Secretary Gresham and a Republican,
in the office of postmaster. The office
pays $1,7000 a year. Postmaster Gres
ham's term expired Dec. 21,1893. There
were many Democratic applicants, but
all have been informed that Secretary
Gresham's brother would be retained.
Hence the protest. A few days ago.
Chairman McDermott, of the Minnesota
si ate Democratic committee, came to
Washington on a political mission. He
carried a letter of introduction to the
secretary of state from the latter's broth
er, the postmaster at St. Peter. Early
iu the present administration "Mike"
Doran, the Minnesota Dpmocratic lead
er, was constituted "referee" by Mr. Bis
sell in all postoffice cases for five Re
publican congressional districts of Min
nesota. Mr. Bissell excepted the case
of the St. Peter postoffice, however,
which he said, with a wink of his offici
al eye, could be settled "without the aid
of a referee."
The candidates have been named and
the Review cannot avoid casting its lot
with Schmid, Klossner and Boesch, as
best representing the progressive and
business-like element of the city. Mr.
Schmid is a young man of thrift and
energy, and his experience as postmaster
of the city stands to his lasting creditjn
that capacity, he demonstrated that he
was an accomodating servant of the pub
lic and earnest and active in securing ad
ditional advantages to the city. Mr.
Klossner is one of the most conservative
business men that New Ulm now classes
as her own. He has held many offices,
as the servant of the public, and has al
ways succeeded in doing his duty and
winning general applause. New Ulm
has profited by his residence here' and
she will continue to do so shoulcL^he be
elected to the council. Mr. Boesch.who
has consented to be a candidate in the
Third ward is too well-known to need
any enconiums. He has served this city
already in many ways. The town bears
many evidences of his individual enter
prise and as a councilor in years gone
by he fathered many improvements that
the city has since found reason to thank
him for. Should these men be elected
we know that wewill have an intelligent,
honest and trustworthy council and
therefore hope that the citizens of New
Ulm will have the good sense to cast
their votes'in their favor when they
come to ballot next Tuesday.
