THE GERMAN PIONEERS'
' Society Enjoy* Its Aumtnl Ontlng nt
j The German Pioneer Socltty held Its
yearly picnic at the Wheeling park yesterday
afternoon, and many of the old
members of the society were present.
The society was Incorporated In 1882,
with C. E. Stlfel as president. Most
of the members are post middle- age.
the oldest one of them, John Rlest,
being eighty-nine years old. The society
had not many members at the start,
but every year it kept on adding new
men to Its memlMJshlp and nov. li Is
a large society. ? " The afternoon was
pleasantly spent' chatting over old
ilnvn Thi- Onr?rn Tl.nm,- orrhpsfrn. nt
tended, the programme being made up
of German selections.
Dr. riri.-h. the present president of
the society, being called upon to make a
speech, said h*- had to compliment the
Pioneers on their : numerous attendance.
He regarded-these gatherings as
the most pleasant entertainment possible,
as old men and women, who lived
moderately, and did all In their power to
make life pleasant, xilet and had a good
time, and although they might appear
old In face and body, their spirits and
minds were still young. He then demonstrated
by the finding of an imaginary
stone tablet, excavated from such
a depth that It must have been 4.000
years old and over which he had spent
unheard of labor and many sleepless
nights to decipher, that pioneers existed
in those days.
Mr. Mayer then recited a very witty
pleee of i>oetry, which told of the German
pioneers. Mr. vViedebusch and
several others aiso made speeches, after
which supper and refreshments were
served, the Pioneers returning on the 6
o'clock motor. %
ixmon^ same or ine pioneers present,
were: Dr. Ulrlch, president; Messrs.
Stelnmets, secretary, and Schneider.
Wiedebusoh, Wllheta. Frank Woebber,
August Itolf, C. Hess, John Ricst
and Fritz Mayer.
TO THE ISLAND.
Another anil Mwcti Nccdril Waiter Main to
tile Cnrtlm Spot.
The passage of the appropriation ordinance
by council on Tuesday night
makes It certain that the Island will
soon have additional and improved
water service by the water works. Th-wat?-r
board will at once proceed to let
contracts for pipe and get It on the
Kround so as to be In shape to take advantage
of the expected low water In the
river which will be neti?-ssary before the
pipe cun be laid across the stream. Superintendent
Varney.'bT the works, has
ju*t returned from M)? cast, where ho
conferred with pip#* manufacturers.
Messrs. Hall and Jpuc:?, of the water
board, are now In Infltanapolls. attending
the meeting of the National Water
Works Association, Probably on their
return the contract for the pipe will brlot.
Th? pipe will be fourteen Inches In
<llamet?r. four Inches larger than the
present pipe crossing the rlvor, which
will give a bountiful supply of water for
the Inland. The pipe will be laid between
the foot of ICIghth street, strlkln:;
tho Idand nt North Front Btreet. and
running thence south towiard tho tvnter
of the 1'ilnnd. to Zone street. Jt 13 estimated
that .'1.000 foot of the fourteenInch
