APPOINTMENTS STILL COMING
Governor Eberhart Continues to
Flood Martin County with Fake
1VV Governor Eberhart's assistants'are
continuing to tend out appointments
as delegates to his fake conservation
congress, in Jarge nUmberB.
A communication was received at
the Independent Zeitung office this
week wbieh read in part,
"AdolphO. Eberhart, Governor."
To whom these Presents shall Come,
Know ye that reposipg especial trust
and confidence in the integrity and
ability of Martin Eytich of Fairmont,
ID Testimony Whereof, I have here
unto set my band and caused the Great
Seal of the State to be affixed at the
Capitol in the City of St. Paul this
first day of October, A. 19 2.
ADOLPH O. EBERHART,
Mr. Eyrlch who was formerly em
ployeu on the Zeitung has not been a
resident of the city for six years, and
the name was probably found in a
In some places hundreds of appoint
ments are not alone received by the
living but in some instances they are
addressed to persons who have been
dead several years.
Postmasters are also troubled by ap
pointments being sent to persons who
have moved away, and whose present
whereabouts are unknown.
The above article clipped from the
columns of the Martin County Inde
pendent pictures the ridiculous efforts
of Governor Eberhart to curry favor
with the voters. It would be trsgic if
it were not funny to see how he hopes
to win votes by appointing men bit
and miss as delegates to this conser
vation congress. His efforts are crude
—note how he applies the soft soap in
big daubs, "Reposing Especial Trust
and Confidence in the Integrity and
Ability—etc." and topi it all off with
the Great Seal of the State, hoping to
impress the icdependent voter with the
honor which has been done him by the
Governor. Not many of them will be
so foolish as to take the appointment
seriously, or to pay for it with a vote.
They are getting "too wise to be
caught with chaff."
If anything, the Democrats of Brown
County are more united than ever this
year and a very strenuous and
effective campaign is promised by the
County Committee which has ap
pointed the following precinct com

this campaign a hummer:

On a platform erected in close prox

and distinguished personages who in
tbe lifetime of Gov. Johnson had
figured prominently as helpers and as

Secretary Ames of tbe 'Monument
Commission presided and after an
invocation by Bishop Lawler, who for
a number of years was chaplain on
Gov. Johnson's Staff, Miss Jeanette

Laying of Loretto Cornerstone.
Next Sunday afternoon at three
o'clock will occur tbe formal exercises
accompanying tbe laying of tbe corner
stone of the new Loretto Hospital.
The work on the building has gone
forward rapidly all summer until now
the shell stands to show the immense
building that will be ready for occu
pancy next spring. It is expected that
the building will be enclosed before
cold weather sets in and a force of
work men will be kept busy on the
interior all winter so that if possible
tbe hospital may be opened in April.
The ceremonies at the laying of the
cornerstone will be most impressive.
Rev. Father Schlinkert assisted by
other priests from this pait of tbe
state will be in charge of tbe dedica
tion. Tbe St Caecelian Society will
also take a prominent part and Mayor
Fritsche is expected to address the
audience as will also Father
Scblinkert. It is expected that the
public generally will be fa attendance.
The hospital when complete will cost
nearly twice the sum that was first
talked of when the addition was
planned. It will be a thoroughly
modern, fireproof structure, consisting
of three stories, attic and basement
and a heating system located under a
separate roof and already Installed.
The cost complete will be more than

Tbe people of Minnesota offered for higtfnubile honor. The address

Toe statue is one that satisfies.
The sculptor, while at fault in some of
his work in the opinion of those who
knew Johnson intimately, has un
questionably caught certain traits that
endeared the governor to the people
and the presentment as a whole grows
on one through study. It stands on

final meeting after the unveiling exer
offered to produce a replica in bronze

Those from this vicinity who wit

A. Delamater has in a remark
ably short time established himself in
the very front aok of producers of
high class attractions. (His produc

Geo. Barr McCutcheon's most success
ful novel "Beverly of Graustark," to
be presented at the Turner Theatre
next Saturday evening, closed a suc
cessful eight weeks engagement at the
Studebaker Theatre, Chicago, last
spring, playing to gross receipts ex
ceeding 949,000, and receiving tbe un
animous endorsement of the entire
Chicago Press The dramatization of
Mr. McCutcheon's popular novel by
Robert Baker is conceded to be
a more fascinating play than story,
as all the characters in the book are
retained in the play. The cast in
cludes Dorothy Howard, formerly
leading woman with "Cameo Kirby,"
Lewreuce Evart, for six years leading
man with Walker Whiteside, Boyd
M. Turner who has played leading
heavies with many of the prominent
dramatic stars and has been prominent
in high class stock companies, Eva
Blaisdell, formerly with Mrs. Fiske
in "Tess of the D'Urbervilles,"
Florence Raoiooff for two seasons
with David Belasco's "Sweet Kitty
Bellairs," Lillian Allen De Vere
formerly with "Tbe Clansman," and
Sixteen other metropolitan players.
In fact no expense has been spared
either as to cast, scenic production or
staging to make "Beverly" one of the
strongest dramatic attractions ever
on tour. The prices for the New Ulm
engagement will range from 25 cents
to 11.00. Seats are now on sale at the
Pioneer Drug Store.
Mr. and Mrs. Louis Haas and Mrs.
John Laudon left Tuesday morning
for Clements where Mrs. Haas' father
is cntioally ill.
Harris Wallin who was bound over

charge of having shot Miss Hulda
Wiese of tbe Town of Bashaw and who
has been languishing in jail ever since,
was admitted to ball late Wednesday
afternoon and left for his home near
Springfield Thursday morning. The

Fire Laddies at Festival Board.
There is no other event during
tbe year that the members of the New
Ulm Fire Department look forward to
as they do to their annual banquet

adequate preparations had been made
by John F. Herzog, Chas. Brust, Jr
and Frank Niemann, tbe committee in
Shortly after six o'clock, the fire
laddies with their wives and sweet
hearts and the City's official family
sat down at the festive board in the
gymnasium of Turner Hall. The tables
were prettily decorated and laden with
all kinds of good and palatable things
to eat. The Ladies' Society of tbe
Turnverein are rather partial to tbe
members of the fire department and
give them tbe best service that they
are capable of which, in turn, is al
ways duly appreciated.
Wm. E Koch acted as toastmaster
and acquitted himself admirably.
There was no set program and for
that reason the task was not an easy
one. Short addresses were made by
Mayor Fritsche, Councilors Retzlaff
and Gieseke, Chief Henry-Eogel, Ex.
Chief Chas Brust, Sr., City Attorney
Henry N. Somsen and First Ass't.
Chief Fred Pfaender. The "Scbnit

proved a winner and caused no end of
About eight o'clock the toastmaster
declared the official part of the pro
gram at an end and the most of the
banqueters repaired to the hall up
stairs and "tripped tbe light fantas
tic" until midnight. Tbe banquet in
more ways than one was superior to
last year's it certainly was in the mat
ter of attendance.
Reception of New Pastor.
Two hundred of the parishioners of
the German M. E. Church gathered at
their church parlors last Friday
evening to welcome their pastor Rev.
Hohn and Mrs. Hohn to their new
field of labor. A program of music
and addresses had been prepared and
was most pleasantly carried out. Dr.
H. W. Rieke presided over the
gathering. Mr. Henry Durbahn gave
the address of welcome for the con
gregation and both Rev. and Mrs.
Hohn responded. Rev. Meyer, Rev.
Wheeler and Dr. Reineke were also

The comfortable home of Mr. and
Mrs. Ernst Strelow near Hunter's Rest

wedding of this-estimable couple and
members of the Ladies' Aid Society of
the Lutheran Church to the number of
about thirty went to the Strelow home
and surprised them in the most ap
proved fashion. Mr. Strelow who is
traveling salesman for tbe August
Scbell Brewing Co. came home after it
was all over, and will arrange to be
on band when the surprisers put in an
appearance at the silver wedding and
thus not miss any of the fun.
Ernst Strelow and wife, whose
maiden name was Annie Freitag, were
married at Nicollet on Oct. 18,1892,
