LAST WEEK WAS
QUITE A SUCCESS
The institute given under the aus
pices of the city school principals last
Friday and Saturday was attended by
200 of the school teachers of the connty.
It was eminently instructive and satis
factory meeti'-ig and great good has
been accomplished. Ex. State Superin
tendent L. D. Harvey, Prof. C. E.
Patzer and Inspector Dotz came to
this city purposely to conduct the exer
cises. Mr. Harvey emphasizes the
necessity of manual training while
Prof. Patzer made a strong point of
eliminating useless studies from the
grades. He made his principal attack
against dead timber in arithmetic,
though it is understood his process of
elimination covers several branches of
so called education.
The lectures given at the institute
will be published in pamphlet form.

Hon. M. Kirwau is still in abeyance,

Fon du Lac is considering some plans to
redistrict several of the circuits for the
purpose of relieving the court in this
circuit of over pressure of business.
The immense amount of litigation, the
importance and extent of the counties
embraced within the jurisdiction of the
presiding judge is admitted every where
and it is common belief that some
relief should be afforded to this
The bar in this county actually real
izes the injustice imposed upon the

a comparison is made with the labors
of the courts in the other circuits. Not
withstanding that the bar of Manito
woc would welcome a satisfactory
change in the district, it has not taken
the initiative in demanding a remedy.
“The bar here’’ said a prominent at
torney “stands ready to forward any
measure looking to an amelioration of
die grievances that we suffer. Wehope
for harmonious action to the end that
if the district is altered each county
may be satisfied. In conjunction with
other attorneys in the county I would
favor a circuit comprising of the coun
ties of Mnnitowoc, Sheboygan and Ke

the average in size and volume ot liti

agreeable to this county but geographic

Heise, Southside teachers have been
offered positions by the government, to
teach in the schools of the Phillipine

obliged to make a contract covering
three years and their compensation
would be SHO a month. Both young
lathes have the offer under advisement
and will reach a decision in the course
of a few days. The position while
lucrative, entails some disadvantages
