Connty Will Have Nothing to do With Idea. P. J. CONWAY LEADS IN FIGHT. Resolution Killed on a Tie Vote of 14 to 14. WILL NOT RECONSIDER PROPOSITION, Most of the County Board Committees W ill Report Before the End of The Week. Little has yet been ac omplished by the County board asr .v hole so far, the members having been diligently attend ing to committee business. Most of the committees will have reported by the end of the week and then the board will quickly dispach any work which may come before it. The proposition of the city for the sale of property to put a county pest house has been rejecter!; the fight against it being led by P. J. Conway, the Meeme member. The objections raised by Mr. Conway were evidently insurmountable: he faking the position that the location practically precluded most/of the town from ever using it. He said this being the case the towns deriving no benefit should not he taxed for its support. Then he argued that any had case of infections disease would hardly go there from nearby towns, be cause the health officers would raise a quarantine against the removal of the patient. When the subject came before, the board in the form of a resolution it was hotly contested and finally defeated by a tie vote. A member voting in the minority asked for a reconsideration, but this was not allowed on the ground that the motion should emenate from the majority side. An appropriation of SSOO has been made toward the construction of break water at the Little Manitowoc. A report of former District Attorney E. S. Schmitz of moneys received dur ing his tenure of office, pending the set tlement of the Hongei.-Schmitz controv ersy previous to May 1. was made to the hoard. Orders paid by Clerk ot Court McMa hon, according to report submitted to the board, amounted for the past six months to $5 loti. 78. The reportof the Committee on Bridges was presented at the session. Two bridges have been constructed, one at Centerville and the other in the town Rockland. The former cost $1,700 and the latter sl,tW2, of which the county is to pay one-half. MANITOWOC WAS WELL REPRESENTED ON MADISON GRIDIRON.

PATZER AND HYER. Both of The Men Are Favorably Known in Wisconsin- HAVE LED IN FIELD OF EDUCATION. Their Names Have Been Projected to the Front by Their Friends With out Solicitation Manitowoc will likely have two candi dates before the State Teachers' associ ation for the office of president The meetings take place in Milwaukee and the principal sessions will be held i.i the Grand avenue Congregational church the week following the Christmas holi days. The section meetings will he held at the Normal school and the PHnkinton House. Some of the more prominent members of the association recognizing the high standing of C. E. Patzer and Principal Hyer as educators have suggested these two names as available candidates fir the office. It is true Mr. Patzer is now located in Milwaukee, hat Mnnitowi c still lays claim to him as one of her worthy sous and watches his advance - ment with kindly solicitude. For a great many years Mr. Patzer ha been associated witli education, having taught in this county for many years; subse quently he became principal of the -Southside school, then county superin tendent. He retired from the latter office to associate himself with the Mil waukeeNormal school, in which insti tution he supervises instruction work. Should his name go before the associa tion he will gather big support to him self because of his recognized ability. Principal Hyer, the second man talk -1 e l of, is like Mr. Patzer a leading educa | t >r and well known in every part of the I state. He is principal of the Training School for Teachers for Manitowoc conn | ty. and since bis iucnmbaucy of that j position the school has become a power, I and has called out the commendation of i superintendent of puhlic.lnstruction for [ the state. Mr. Flyer’s name would cer j tainly be received with favor and. if | either heor Mr. Patzer get the office they will he certain to adorn it. It should he said in justice to Mr. Patz.r and Mr. Hyer that neither man seeks the office. Deaths of a Week. Miss Frances Fischer, of the Rapids died last Thursday.

HIGGINS M \KES PREDICTIONS. As Soon as Two Risers and Manitowoc are Joined Track W ill be Laid to Kewaunee. “The track is laid between here and Two Rivers with the exception of cross ing the Little Manitowoc bridge,” said Mr. Higgins, yesterday, “and n in completed work on the road will bo rushed as rapidly as possible. We are hopeful that the power house and elec tric machinery will be installed by the early part of January.” Mr. Higgins was asked whether the road would Ihj in operation in January and he replied:* 1 It had been our inten tion to have run cars by the middle of Die 'inler, bat we find this impossible, because our construction has been con siderably impeded by the condition of the right of way between Manitowoc and Two Rivers, more particularly iu the vicinity of the Little Manitowoc river and the bridge. All the difticnl ties are now solved and we do not I> < k for further<delay and if this is the cso we shall have the road running, carry ing passengers not later than Feb. 1. We set this date as the maximum aid not the minimum.” As soon as the road is in operation b - tween Two Rivers and Manitowoc and is running smoothly additional con struction will be commenced, extend ing the passenger line to Mishicot and thence on through Tisch Mills to Ke waunec. It is confidently hoped that by the latter part of next summer most of the rails will be laid, thus giving railroad i connections with • Kewaunee, which, certainly will lie great accommo dation for persons living iu the cities and between them.
