Great Debate Between Two Uni
versity Literary Societies.
The Manitowoc Sludeht Closed for His
Side of Question.
Much Interest was Manifested in this City
in this Forensic Effort—This Phil
omathia Boys Proud.
In the debate between the Philomathia
and Athenae societies attched to the
state university last week the former
won. Manitowoc takes just pride in
this achievement inasmuch as Paul
Schuette, son of August Schuette, was
on the winning side.
The two societies meet annually and
the Athenae had been successful in the
two former contests. The Philomathia
had the affirmative side and the Athenae
the negative, The question was;
‘ Is the present concentration of vast
aggregations of capital in the United
States, in single, private manufacturing
corporations, inimical to the public wel
fare- ’
Interpretation—(a.) Single private
manufacturing corporations shall not
include those operating under a fran
chise by municipal corporations, (b.)
Manufacturing means the process or
one of the processes of converting the
raw material into the finished product.”
Paul A. Schuette closed the debate
for the affirmative. He said:
‘‘A combination of the agricultural
classes is obviously impossible. As these
great corporations more and more get
control of the industries in which it is
especially engaged, it finds himself
having but one buyer for many of its
raw materials. The comi>etitive buyer
has disappeared, and it is a case of one
buyer, one bid, one price for the farmer.
At tho same time these and other com
binations have raised to him the price
of the necessaries of life, and have thus
decreased the real wages of the farmer.
•'lt is claimed that combinations in
crease our export trade, but if the peo
ple pay for it, the people and not the
combinations should get the credit for
it. If combinations can better increase
our foreign trade than competing con
cerns it is because they have the power
of extorting such a high price from do
mestic consumers that they cau sell
very cheaply to foreigners.
“We have an old maxim “The safety
of the public is the supreme law’
Industrial corporations should be orga
ized and managed ou sound business
principles, and should not be allowed
to encourage over capitalization and
thus create the conditions of inflation
which inevitably result in reaction and
panic. When a period of depression
comes, failure is the inevitable result
of such a great excess of liabilities over
assets. ”
M. W. Kalaher, one of the teachers in
the First ward school was admitted to
the bar as a practicing attorney by
Judge Kirwan last Saturday morning.
Mr. Kalaher passed the rigid legal ex
amimition of the State Bar Examiners
at it fall examination, 1902. His papers
were eminently satisfactory. It is the
intention of Mr. Kalaher to abandon
school work at the close of the present
term and thenceforward to apply his
energies to the legal profession.
He is a young man of ability, whoso
work has counted, and he has a promis
ing future before him. He means to
leave this city to take up the labors of
the law in another field.

Considerable commotion was occas
ioned in tho city by the spread of infor
mation on Monday that glanders were
rife among the horses. State Veterinary
Surgeon E. D. Roberts of Janesville was
in the city on Sunday and condemned
several animals which have been killed.
It was thought the disease would Ire
come so rampant that horses very gen
erally would suffer with the disease and
would be be killed. Prompt and effec
tive measures were taken, however
which checked everything like contagion
and further trouble from this source is
averted. There is much occasion for
alarm among horse owners us the re
port was made upon the first apjrear
anco of the disease and the steps that
are being taken will make it impressible
for further contagion.

Charles C. Olsen Secures a Verdict against
the City for $250 for Injuries fron
Defective Sidwalk.
The criminal end of the Circuit court
calendar will lie finished today and the
civil jury case* will be immediately
taken up, and it is thought that the en
tire number of cases will be disposed of
within the next ten days. The court is
now engaged on the case of John
Spindler, who is accused of a grave
charge against a six year old child,
Anita Voland of Kiel. The defendant
is a young man of 21 years and his al
leged victim is so young that the Court
mercifully decided that she be not c al
led to testify.
In the case of Robert Gillett charged
with the burglary of the Rand & Roo
mer hardware store the state abandoned
tho prosecution believing it could not
prove the defendant guilty. The case
of the state was based on purely cir
cumstancial evidence which the defense
was able refute by the testimony of wit
nesses who did not appear at the pre
liminary examination.
The case of Chas. C. Olsen who sued
the city for injuries sustained through a
defective sidewalk secured a verdict of

hard fight was made. Jurors in the

Patrick Carroll, a fireman on a loco
motive of the Great Northern railroad,
was seriously hurt in a train hold up
last week at Boulder, Montana. The
engineer of the same train was killed.
Carroll before he went railroading was

this county for a number of years. He
now lies in a hospital at Clancy, Mont

of his friends writes to The Pilot that

W. F. Nash, editor of the Two Rivers
Chronicle, prints the following “S. A
Wood, a well-known and highly es
teemed resident of Manitowoc makes
a practice celebrating his birthday an
niversary by writing a letter on such
occasions to a lady friend whose home
is 'way down East' where he came from
fifty or more years ago when he 'came
West.' Frequently these letters are
written in poetry and contain many
quaint ideas and delightful literary tid
bits. laist Wednesday was his Mist
birthday and tho letter to the lady
friend, in the East announcing the fact
was written in the form of a poem
which was somewhat speculative as
regards that which awaits us all when
death shall have ended our earthly
career. He is decidedly agnostic in his
views as regards a future state of ex
istence and closes his letter as follows

More Small Pox Cases—Two in
mates of the home of Joseph Jodinski of
S. 2 th street are down with the small
pox. The city will care for the new
cases while the county has taken charge
of the old one. It is doubtful that the
economy sought by tho county com
missioners will now be found as with
three or four cases, -the charge would
have been divided and considerable less
than for caring for one case.
