and Patriotism of the Owners of Real
Estate Manitowoc to be a City.
During the summer considerable work
will be done on the streets grading,
regrading, curb planking, side walks
filled and graveled. There are a num
ber of petitions already before the coun
cil and these will like 1 .; lie favorably
acted upon and the extensions under
taken. It is estimated by the city engi
neer and the Board of Public Works
that the various improvements on the
streets will not cost less than
“It is remarkable,’ said the mayor,
“how anxious are the owners of proper
ty to have good streets. This fact in
dicates a patriotic as well as a healthy
public sentiment. lam glad to see the
citizens take such decided interest in
municipal improvements, it augurs
well for the future.” The following
streets will undergo improvements dur
ing the summer:
Twenty-sixth street, between Mar
shal and Clark streets.

SCHLETTE BROS. BLILD
ING IS BEGINNING TO
ASSUME SOME OUTLINE.
The new Scnuette Bros, building at
Jay and Eighth streets is about rising
out of the ground. It had been expect
ed by Fred Schuette that the structure
would have been more ahead at this
time than it is, but owing to a delay in
shipping the iron girders and supports
work of laying the brick was impeded
fully ten days. No further stoppage,
however, is expected on this score: the
iron already delivered will last for the
next month. All the iron mills of the
East, it seems, are rushed with orders.
Struck by a Hammer While John
Lange one of Kennedy’s workmen at the
Rahr building was knocking down a
post with a sledge hammer last Satur
day, the hammer flew out of his hand
and struck a fellow workman, Chas.
Augenstine in the stomach. Augenstine
was at once taken to his home and Dr.
Luhman called. The injury is not seri
THE MANITOWOC PILOT.
STREETS SHOULD BE
SPRINKLED, TOO MUCH
DUST FLYS ABOUT.
The following communication was
received by The Pilot from a subscriber:
Editor of Pilot:—One of the most
urgent needs in this city is to have our
streets sprinkled. Why the city fathers
have so long neglected providing for
this necessity has been much comment
ed on by strangers visiting in the city.
One of our citizens who is a great ad
mirer of our beautiful parks, recently
said they would prefer to have the
streets cared for and sprinkled than to
have the parks cared for, unless both
could be done, for the dust we have
here not only ruins everything, but is a
great menace to health, as the air is
filled with germs blown about with the
dust. No other city of half the size is
without the proper sprinkling facilities
paid for by the city.

BUYS A BLOODED
TEAM 0E HORSES.
A spanking team of chesnnt sorrel
horses purchased by Frank P. Jones in
Green Bay arrived in the city early yes
terday morning. They are exceedingly
stylish and are blooded stock with tv
pedigree. It has been said by good jud
ge'of horse flesh that these animals tire
superior to any . utside of Chicago. In
any case, however, when hitched they
make a striking appearance, high 'top
pers and graceful movers. The team
may be seen any day on the street.
WILL PRACTICE LAW IN
CIIA 01 MANITOWOC.
Attorney A. S, Chloupek of MNliicot
is about to branch out by opening an
office in Manitowoc. He means to prac
tice law here, and believes he can share
the proceeds of the profession with his
brethern which will afford him a busy
practice. This, however, he admits
must be tested though he believes that
legal talent is much more in demand in
this city than in Mishicot. For the
present it is the attorney's intention to
retain his residence at Mishicot.
A SITE FOR THE

Th** Tumor hall was tin* scene last
Friday .*v> ning of as spirited an I thor
i otighly iire]>an i1 a for**nsi*- ei uti-* as
! has ever been witnessed in this city.
I Tlio contest for the antlers of victory lay
between representatives of the Inner
Circle Debating society of the Fond dn
Lac hit;h school and the repre- t
of the Korn in society of the S at i iie
high school of this city. The debate
] was thoroughly enjoyed by about f- nr
hundred of the friends and patrons
;of the school, as was attested by the
rapt attention paid to each of the debat
ers. as well as by the hearty applause
with which each effort was received.
Tin- hall and stage had been hand
sninelv decorated with the national col
ors, the colors of the contesting school.
1 and flowers, ferns ami palms.
The Fond dn Lac delegation, mi inher
ing stnd*nts and teachers, arrived on
the tl o’clock train over the Northwest
ern road, and were coidially received by
a large body of the students and teach
ers of the Sotithsidc school. The hear
tiness of the reception and the evident
good will manifested on every hand by
the local tudents. at once established
the most perfect > ■' ii'i ro, ' ill between
the visiting ami tin* local students, a
feeling which con tinned unbroken until
the departure of the visitors for home
the following monthly.
The judges chosen for the evening
were lion. L. ,1. Nash, of Hastily, U**v
L. E. Peeke of Fond <lu Lac, ■.•< 1 Plot
A. 11. Sage, of the Oshkosh Normal
school. .Air. Peeke, however, was nit
.avoidably detained, and the division
was left to the other two gentlemen.
The question upon which the debate
ensued was a timely one. Resolved
That all plants for furnishing water,
light ami surface transportation si., aid
lie owned find operated by the iimniei
palities of the Tinted States. Fond dn
Lac supported the affirmative and the
Southsiders the negative.
The debate was opened by Frank i iit
ford who contended that the atlinuative
repiesenfed the progressive side of tbs
unestion, that private ownership was
doomed, that it was a system of ext- r
tionate rat s for tin* least degree of efti
cieticv of service. He argued that the
public school system was under muni i
pal ownership and control, and that no
one would for u moment think of lea\
ing it to be managed by [irivute corpoi
at ions. Air. i litfurd was perfectly s**!f

inents, however, were a trifle too rambl
ing to make the strongest impression.
