NEW ULM CITIZENS EXPRESS
HOSTILITY TO PLAN OF
DAM NEAR CITY.
CLAIM LAKE WOULD BE ONLY
A MENACE TO HEALTH
Asserting that the proposed conser
vancy dam near the city of New Ulm
would not solve the flood-water sit
uation the Minnesota river valley
and that the result for New Ulm would
mean only a costly swamp with dead
vegetation and trees, a breeding place
for mosquitoes, the cutting off of
trade highways, and not a real lake
with spring water and gravel bottom,
but silt and mud, many business men
and others expressed themselves as
forcibly opposed to the plan at a meet
ing held in the Commercial club rooms
Monday evening. After many citi
zens had expressed their opposition, a
motion was adopted instructing Presi
dent Otto Buenger to appoint a com
mittee of three or five citizens to meet
with the conservancy board with the
idea of heading off the project. The
meeting went officially on record as
opposed to the dam here with the
adoption of a resolution to that effect.
Graff Give* Opening Talk.
J. P. Graff, the New Ulm member of
the conservancy commission, gave the
opening talk, explaining the history
of the conservancy movement, the
act of the last legislature which created
the commission, the surveys that had'.
been made and the plans agreed upon
by the commissioners. He compared
the commission's work with that of
a drainage ditch board, stating that
the viewing, laying out, bonding etc.
were practically identical. Two of the
commissioners live above New TJln
on the river and two below, and with
a practical agreement upon dams at
Big Stone Lake, Lac Qui Parle and
New Ulm we are in between, and in
case of a fight would be at some dis
advantage. A dam at New Ulm would
be a fine thing for Mankato and the
other towns down along the line as
well as for the farmers down that way.
Mr. Graff reiterated that about 2,000
acres would be permanently flooded
here and something like 65,000 per
manently reclaimed, and the cost of
the dam here would be about $1,000,00
and the two dams above here would
cost about $1,500,000. Maps are now
being drawn to indicate the levels
and appearance of the proposed lake,
dam and surrounding country.
Mr. Graff stated that a permanent
level of 798 feet had been suggested
for here, whereas 805 feet would bring
the water about on a level with the
floors of the new bridge here.
F. W. Johnson Opposes.
W. Johnson expressed himself as
absolutely opposed to the dam pro
ject, stating it would be detrimental
to the best interests of the city of
New Ulm. He said it was impossible
to have a beautiful lake here with the
ground covered only to a shallow
depth that would furnish breeding
places for mosquitoes, and that in
all his experience with floods here
since 1881 he had never seen a stage
of water that indicated anything like
a real lake at this point. The deposit
ing of silt and the growth of rushes
and weeds as well as the killing of the
trees within a short time he said were
a menace to the city. Mr. Johnson
also argued that much trade would be
lost to New Ulm if roads now leading
to the city were flooded or put out
"Now is the time for the citizens
of New Ulm and our neighboring far
mers to act", said Mr. Johnson in
"Who is going to handle the flood
gates and get the waterpower?", asked
President Otto Buenger.
Hasn't Heard Good Word.
"I haven't heard a good word for
the project from anyone", said H. Auf
derheide. "The channel of, the Min
nesota river should be widened, straight
ened and cleaned and the Cottonwood
made to run in its old course".
F. H. Retzlaff said this was a very
serious matter and that New Ulm
citizens would do well to act energeti
cally in their own interests.
Jacob Klossner spoke of his 66 years
residence in the Minnesota valley and,
said he had seen the water as |dcep
as 30 feet and then again only one
foot. Mr. Klossner is opposed to the
dam here. ^,
Somsen Advises Committee.
Atty, H. N. Somsen was called upon
as one who had made a deep study
of the situation. Mr. Somsen said that
while he was in sympathy with a great
deal that had been said by the other
speakers he felt it was not so much a spring of
matter of cost and engineering as it
was of usefulness or damage to the
city of New Ulm. If New Ulm was
opposed he project, Mr. Somsen
felt that the opposition should be ex
pressed in such manner as would get
results, and not merely by passing a
resolution and then afterwards fighting
when the' board had made a decision
that is likely to be backed up by the
courts. Mr. Somsen said we must
not overlook the fact that the Minne
sota river has a fall of only ten feet in
about thirty miles in the New Ulm
territory and westward. The problem
of conservancy here is a big one, and
when the matter of conservation was
first broached there was much senti
ment in favor of doing something now,
with a dam proposed at the New Ulm
site much opposition had developed.
Mr. Somsen advised the appointment
of a committee of three or five to re
present New Ulm at board meetings,
and this suggestion was favorably
acted upon. President Buenger will
name the members later.
Others who spoke Monday evening
were John Huelskamp, Philip Liesch,
A. P. Boock and Ferd. Crone.
Another Meeting Soon.
President Buenger announced that
he would call another meeting as soon
as the engineer had his drawings of
the proposed dam here completed, and
he will announce at that time the
names of the committeemen to repre
sent New Ulm at the hearings.

with the outlook. The new manager

New Ulm makes the sixth in a chain
of stores established by the firm, the
others being located at Minneapolis^
Faribault, Red Wing, Stillwater and
St. Cloud. President Constans attri
butes the success of the stores to giv
ing the public the greatest possible
value for the purchasing dollar. The
organization occupies a large space at
the Great Northern Warehouse Co. in
Minneapolis, where all buying is done
for the stores. The company also
does a wholesale business in the Twin
Mr. Constans attributes the success
of his company to the large purchases
it makes with quick turn-overs and
small profits. He is a firm believer in
advertising and maintains that success
ful merchandising consists of fair and
honest dealing with the public. Pro
gressive "store keeping" means that
the merchant must protect his busi-'
ness as well as the interests of lus
patrons with a uniform high quality
of merchandise bought right so as to
be able to sell at prices that will in
duce home patronage.
W. F. Dietz, the manager of the
local store, is a young man of pleas
ing personality and of the progressive
type that assures everything will he
done to give the customers the best
in service and merchandise. The new
store is located in the Behnke building
at 18 North Minnesota street.

Justice George Hogen Thursday on a
charge of having struck Anton Groeb

Groebner testified that Kurzweil
sprang upon him Thursday from ab

his eye by striking him heavily with a
pair of pliers.

NEW ULM, BROWN COUNTY, MINNESOTA, WEDNESDAY, MAY 31, 1922
Capt. Joseph Hof meister
LEAVE NEW ULM
•VwS -—f- -#si
SPRINGFIELD fcHOOSES THE
Capt. Joseph C. Hofmeister who has
been the leader of the former Second
Regiment band, now the Hofmeister
band, for almost a quarter of a century
and who has been looked upon as a per
manent feature of New Ulm will
leaye in the very near future to be
come the leader of the Orpheus band
of Springfield. This comes as a sur
prise to most of the citizens who had
no idea whatsoever that Captain Hof
meister was considering offers from
other cities. It will be generally re
gretted that he has taken this step and
has severed his connection with the
band which has, under his able leader
ship, attained a state wide reputation.
"Captain Hofmeister likes New Ulm,
likes the people and liked his associa
tion with the band members, but, as
he puts it, everyone must look out for
himself. He has reached that age in
life where he must look out for the
future welfare o£ has family and the
offer made him by the people of
Springfield is so flattering from a
financial view point that he simply
felt that he really could not turn
down, especially as provisions are to
be made to find employment for other
members of his family who will be
come associated with the Orpheus
band. Captain Hofmeister feels that
he has spent enough years in the musi
cal field for the love of the thing and
without adequate financial returns and
for that reason he accepted the Spring
Musician From Childhood.
From childhood on Capt. Hof
meister devoted a great share of his
time to the study of music and musical
instruments. He was born March
29, 18G7, in Eger, Kreis Bohemia, and
was only fourteen
old when he
came to New He was already
quite proficient on the violin, having
taken lessdhs while still in the Old
Country. Being musically inclined
it was natural for him to seek for op
portunities to play in orchestras and
bands and we find him as a member of
the Turner Hall orchestra under the
leadership of Henry Subilia and a
member of the string quartettle with
Robert Nix as leader.1^ -1 r-
His next venture was to organize
ajid become the leader of the Cotton-:
wood Valley Band of Milford and he
was the leader of the later Milford band.
He was also the Reader of the Concor
dia Band, Star band and City band
organized here in New Ulm. ,***
In 1898 it was quite generally felt
that New Ulm had too many bands
and yet really did not have a first class
band and an effort was made to unite
the different organizations that were
in existence at that time. In April,
1898, this was accomplished and the
name given to the new organization
was "The Great Westeni Band" and
Captain Hofmeister was elected leader.
l|r* Military Band Formed,
After the Second Regiment was re
organized in 1869 the Great Western
band was selected as the Regimental
Band -and from that time "on "until
about four years ago Captain Hof
meister was the leader of this military
band. When the Second Regiment was
mobilized for service at the Mexican
border, Captain Hofmeister stuck to
his post and served as leader of the
band on the Mexican border for seven
months. After the regiment and the
band were mustered out at Fort Snel
ling, he returned to New Ulm. Shortly
after Ms return the band was reor
ganized Ideally and ever since has been
lenbwn under the name of Hofmeister

take part. The parade headed by the
Hofmeister Band, followed by Co.

that the rain would be of only short

hold the memorial services there as
originally planned, The rain increased
and there was a steady downpour
while the program was being rendered.
Howard Vogel gave Lincoln's Speech

AT LOCAL HOTEL
ARRESTED SATURDAY AT 3 A. M.
WHILE STOPPING OVER
PLEADS NQT GUILTY WHEN HE
IS TAKEN BEFORE JUDGE
OLSON IN COURT.
A. Isaacson, also known as Saxon,
was placed under arrest by Deputy
Sheriff W. H. Gieseke at the Dakota
House Saturday morning at 3 o'clock
and taken to the county jail on a
charge of attempted disposition of
an automobile here while it was still
mortgaged, and without notifying the
man who held the mortgage.
Chevrolet Car Mortgaged.
Isaacson has been living at St. Paul
for some time and working out of there
in a line of business which seems to
bring him down into this section of,
the state quite frequently. From the
charges made against him it appears
that Isaacson had a Chevrolet car
which he sought to trade off for a
Buick to Alfred Baltrusch. There was
a mortgage on the car Isaacson sought
to dispose of it is said and he gave
no information regarding this to the
parties interested,* including the man
who held the mortgage.
Isaacson pleaded not guilty when
brought before Judge Olson Saturday
morning. He was represented by Atty.1 Windschittl he was found not guilty*
Pfaender. He put up $500 bail,
furnished by two local citizens.
Sheriff Goes to St. Paul.
The case against Isaacson will come'
Monda to farfheo vi
dence the as the part alleged'
to haver'a $450 mortgage on the Chev
rolet car is said to reside there. The
Chevrolet car is at Alfred Baltrusch's
and if it had been taken by the latter
with a mortgage on it he would have
had either to give up the car or pay
the mortgage. Mr. Baltrusch demanded
the' money when Isaacson came to
close the deal for a Buick car.

NIGHT FOR JURY.
ELEVEN MEN AND WOMAN FAIL
TO AGREE AND ARE
The end of the criminal calendar had
not been reached at the time the R«
vivw went to press, and it is not likely
that the end of the calendar will be
reached by Saturday, which is the last
day of the present term here, as Judge
I. M. Olsen opens a ertn of district
court at Marshall Monday^ Unfinished
cases will have to be heard later.
Herbert Fath pleaded guilty to the
charge of non-supporjfc of a minor child.
Jake Meyer, living near Comfrey*
was found guilty on the charge of
stealing two geese. Meyer had pre
viously been found guilty in justice
court at Springfield but had taken an
appeal to the district court.
The jury in the case of the state
versus John Ubl of Sleepy Eye on a
charge of carnal knowledge of a female
child was out twenty-six hours without
being able_to agree on a verdict, and
it is reported were quite equally divided
in their opinion as to the guilt of the
defendant. The jury went out Thurs
day morning and made its final report
to Judge I. M. Olsen at 11 o'clock
Friday, after twenty-six hours of con
tinuous service. The jury had re
ported once before, at 9 o'clock
Friday morning and upon informing
Judge Olsen that they had been un
able to agree, were told to retire to the
jury chamber once more and see if it
were not possible to come to some
agreement. This proved impossible,
and when the jury was called into
court again at 11 o'clock and reported
its inability to agree, Judge Olsen dis
charged the members.
Up To The Sheriff. __*
Sheriff W. J. Julius was a busy man
Thursday evening when it was re
ported the fury was still out with little
prospects of agreement. He hunted
up bedding, cots and curtains and
made the jury room into improvised
sleeping quarters. One part of the
room was curtained off for the only
woman member, Mrs. Larrabee, and
the eleven men slept in the other part
of the room, all on separate cots. Out
side were the two faithful bailiffs*
Mrs. Martha Luetjen and Chas. Brust.
The bailiffs kept awake all night and
were very tired Friday morning, and
it was the hope of Mrs. Luetjen that
there would be no more all-night
John Ubl, defendant in the case
which held up the jury so long, is a
driver of an oil truck at Sleepy Eye.
In the civil case where he was charged
with the parentage of a child of Clara
but the criminal charges growing out
of an indictment by the grand jury for
offenses against Clara Windschittl
while under the age of eighteen, were
