Brandt, for many yearn a resident of Manitowoc and a leading businessman. died quite sudde , lou Friday af term on of hemorrhage. His health had been imj<aired for a year or more, but he was a man of great strength and only forty-five years of age, ho that no immediate apprehension wan felt. A few days before bin death he suffered a hemorrhage, but it wan stopped, and Thursday he was out again and attend ing to business. It was hoped that noth ing serious would result, but the day following lie had another attack, which proved fatal. Mr. Brandt was born in Germany in 1855, but has lived in this country practically all his life. He came to Manitowoc many years ago, and for a long time has conducted an ice-business here. He was energetic and careful, and handled his affairs with success. He leaves surviving him a widow and three children, his mother and his brother William Brandt of the Brandt Printing & Binding Cos.

There were few present in the court room, as the jury were not ordered to report until this afternoon at two o'clock, j Attorneys from out of town in attend ance were E. M. Hyzer, J L. O'Connor and A. J. Schmitz of Milwaukee and F. W. Dicke of Two Rivers. C. H. Welsh, of Milwaukee, court reporter iu the first judicial circuit, acted in t hat capacity for Judge Clementson. As the present session is merely an adjourned session of our regular January term, the calen dar was not called, but the judge went through the cases that an 1 tobedisposed of by him. Rotsol vs. Two Rivers Mfg. Cos was announced as ready for trial as soon as the jury appeared. In Horst vs. Louis Kunz et al, A. J. Schmitz stated that a settlement was pending. Piening vs. Estate of George Pankratz will prob ably le taken out of the county for trial, unless the parties agree to submit the issues to the court without a jury. In Hubbard, administrator, vs. C. & N. W. Ry. Cos., Messrs. Sedgwick for plaintiff and Hyzer for defendant indulged in a little sparring preliminary tosubmitting the question of the statute of limitations separate from the jury issue. Langen hahu vs. Schroeder et al. was agreed to lie tried by the court. Bischoff vs. Knipfer was announced as ready for jury trial. The railway condemnation cases, twenty-two in number, were then taken up. The first thirteen of them came before the court on motions by the railway company for leave to file amend ed answers to the petitions, on the ground that the lecision of the Supreme Court in the Michael Knhl case had changed the question at issue. Nash & Nash and E. M. Hyzer appeared for the railway company in support of the mo tions, and G. G. Sedgwick, A. J. Schmitz and J. L. O’Connor in opposition. The court listened to argument from both sides and took the matter under advise ment. Dit.A. N. Kittki.hkn, who is wellknown hero where he practiced medicine for some time, is getting into the ‘ inner circles" in congress. Not that he has bought him a seat in the senate, or any thing of that kind, but his knowledge of matters in the Cape Nome gold district has l>een made useof in framing the new civil government bill for Alaska. In the debate on this bill on April 19, Senator Stewart of Nevada, opposing the schemes of some “claim-jumjK’rs,’’ read an affi davit of Dr. Kittelson’s, and stated that “Dr. Kittelsen is vouched for by sena tors here as a gentleman of undoubted veracity. He makes a short affidavit as to the inception of these claims. He was not a hundred miles, or two hun dred miles away. He does not appear here as a relator; he does not tell a lot of sensational stories for which no one can vouch. He does not implicate army officers or anything of that kind. There is no “caudal in his affidavit. It is the truth from a man on the ground, lb* does not tell a lot of roundabout stories about military officers and such sensa satioual stuff. He is not pleading In the interest of jumpers.” Senator Sjssmer of Whcousin supported Senator Stew art's argument.

Cos., Cleveland. This book although crammed with val uable information is of vest pocket size. It contains a full list of vessels of the great lakes, together with the name of the master, engineer, and owner of each vessel. The arrangement is such that by simply knowing the name of a vessel, one is enabled to find not only the names of the officers and manager or owner, but a list of the other vessels controlled by the same interest. The value of the hook as a work of reference is obvious. It is extensively used by business houses that furnish supplies to the vessels, as well as by persons desiring to send out circulars or other business communica tions. In the edition just issued there are listed more than 1.590 vessels. The book sells for $ I Golden weddings an* taking place all over the country.
