Manitowoc And Neighboring
Towns And Village Celebrate
The Glorious Fourth
Derby Day Malinee In City And M. W.
A. Picnic At Two Rivers Draw Large
Crowds—Notes Of Happenings
Cities, towns and villages of Manito
woc county fittingly honored the day of
the Nation’s birth Saturday, the glori
ous Fourth being celebrated in most
patriotic manner. The Derby matinee
in this city and the Modern Woodmen
picnic at Two Rivers were the chief
events and attracted large crowds.
Few accidents, none of serious nature,
are reported from the day’s doings and
in all the Fourth passed as a wry satis
factory event.
Some disappointment was experienced
in the Derby conducted by the Riding
and Driving club, hut it sufficed to serve
the purpose of providing entertainment.
The parade was not up to the standard
of previous events and the racing card
at the Fair Grounds daring the after
noon was not up to exjiectations.
Three events were run, the 1 ;5, class
1;30 and free for all and the number of
entries were limited. In the first class,
Lex, owned by C. Math, won, the best
time being 1:17. A. C. Whitney’s Solar
captured the 1:20, winning two of four
heats, in 131. Two horses wore en
tered in the free for all, the race going
to Floris, owned by Cootway iu three
straight heats, Behnke’s Tutio Wilkes
having no claim to the contest.
Iu the evening a dance was given at
Turner hall, under the auspices of the
club. Fifty couple attended and made
the party the event of the day’s cele

the county
picnic of the association and a crowd
estimated at 3500 people was in atten
dance to participate iu the day’s doings.
The program arranged by the Two
Rivers camp included a parade in which
nearly every camp in the county was
represented and this proved one of the
features of the celebration. The festi
val took place at Picnic Hill and
varied forms of amusement were off
ored. Prizes were awarded for a num
ber of contests conducted, the list of
prize winners being as follows:
Potato Race—l. Julia Monka; 3, Miss

A business session was held at which
the question of having a permanent
picnic organization came up. The de
cision was reserved until next year ow
ing to the fact that six camps of the
county had no representation in the
meeting. W M. Davey, of this city,
presided and Manitowoc was selected to
entertain the county gathering next
year. The picnic was a success that re
flected credit to the Woodmen organiza
tion and in particular to the Two Rivers
camp which had the arrangements in
The Nation’s natal day was celebrat
ed in fitting manner at Mishicott, the
festivities opening with a dance at
Leven Logon's hall Friday evening at
which there was a large attendance of
pleasure seekers who enjoyed a pleasant
time. Prof. Schaner’s band furnished
excellent music for the party and
everything was provided to contribute
to the entertainment. While there
was no official program for the celehr .-
Hon on Saturday. the event was gener
ally participated in and the day was
observed with all the honor which the
important anniversary is entitled to.
As was to be expected there were a
number of accidents resulting from the
celebration of the Fourth but Manito
woc was fortunate in having few ofseri
ous character; One of the most disas
trous mishaps befell David Schurr, re
siding uorth of the city. The prema
ture discharge of a toy cannon seriously
burned the boy about the face and
hands and there is considerable danger
from the wounds. Another victim of
the cannon is John Glysch, a south side
lad, who had his eyes filled with powder
and was badly burned by the discharge.
It is thought that the sight cau be saved
although at the present time this has
not been determined to a certainty.
Paul Andraseck, a resident of the Hill,
may lose two fingers of the right hand
from the injury inflicted by a cannon
cracker which exploded in his hand.
12-year old Willie Weir was severely
burned by the discharge of a fire cracker
in his face and little Helen Schweitzer
had her eye injured by a piece of burn
ing cracker. Albert Albrecht, residing
five miles north of the city, was injured
by having his face tilled with powder
from the explosion of a cannon.
Property loss and damage was light.
The roof of the Boiler Works plant was
somewhat damaged by an explosion iu
the building, hut the repairs cost but a
small sum. A plate glass window in
the store of Charles F. Fechter was shat
tered by a sky rocket which passed
through It when a large quantity of fire
works was set on fire by accident on
South Eighth street.
Oue of the pretty displays of fireworks
In the evening was that provided by
Ex-Mayor William Ruhr on the Lake
front at the foot of Marshall street.
The display continued two hours and
included all the late novelties in fire
works. A large crowd was entertained.
Numerous small displays were provided
in all parts o' the city.
In all Manitowoc had a fitting and
interesting celebration of the Glorious
Fourth and one that was particularly

Numerously Mentioned Internrhan Project
Discussed for This Section of State.
Articles of organization have lieen
filed for the Fond du Lac and North-
Western Railway Company, proposing
to construct aud operate an electric in
ter-urhan between Fond du Lac and
Manitowoc, via Chilton, Eaton,
Liberty. Cato and Manitowoc Rapids.
The line is also to branch to Appleton
and connect Kankauna with that city.
The Company is capitalized at SIO,OOO
the incorporators lining W 11 Phillips,
W. H. Wilson. Franklin Phillips, J. E.
McMullen and F. H. Sweet. Fond du
Lac and Chilton men. This is the
second internrhan ptoject proposed for
Manitowoc and Fond du Lac within the
past few weeks, both ot which are said
to lie backed by sufficient capital to
consummate. It Is not probable that the
lines will materialize for two or time
years to come, although an internrhan
connecting Manitowoc with the cities of
Oshkosh, Fond du Lac, and Kankauna
is certain to come in time. A third
internrhan project talked of is one I>e
tween Sheboygan and Manitowoc.
This is iierhaps most likely of early
realization than the others.

Mishkot People Want Definite
Statement as to Extension
of Car Lines.
Murmurs that Grant May Be Recalled U
lets Move to Extend b Soon Made —
Company Cannot Secure Material
Ml.hicot people are growing anxious
over the delay iu the starting of work
on the extension of the interurban
lines of the Manitowoc & Northern
Traction Company north from Two
Kivers and the murmur, of dissatisfac
tion have reached the ears of officials
of the line. It was confidently expec
ted that the extension would b under
way early iu the present year, bat
nothing has tieen done at this time.
The franchise granted to the Company
by the village of Mishicot was for a
limited period and will expire in a few
months. This fact is being suggestive
ly set forth iu the character of a covert
threat (hat unless some definite inform
ation is forthcoming, the fianobise
may be refused a renewal
inability to secure the material for the
extension has been given by Traction
Company officials as the cause of tha de
lay in starting the work. According to
the statement of Thomas Higgins, presi
dent of the Company, the price of ma
terial has advanced during the past year
to figures almost prohibitive for the
construction of the lines, end it is Im
possible to secure shipment. la view of
these conditions the company cannot
engage iu the work. At Milwaukee re
cently. Mr. Higgins gave oat an inter
view in which he stated that the Com
pany would begin the construction of
the Mishicott extension as soon ae con
dition. were favorable and material
could be secured. With this the North
must be satisfied. Another thing that
may have entered into the ooneidera
tion end canoed delay on the part of the
Company, is the trouble which inter
urban lines iu other sections of the state
have encountered over the law regulat
ing the rights of the electric roade to
carry freight. A case involving the
question is now pending iwfore the Su
preme Court and a decision is expected
within a short time. Should the Court
bold adversely to the interurban a* a
freight carrier, it would mean a henry
loss to the local company as the pnrpoaa
is to engage in that line. While It is
nut probable that a dscision in this
would interfers with the construction
of the Mishicot line, it might delay It
fur au indefinite time.
The original intention of the Com
pany to build to Mishicot has not been
altered and if negotiatione now under
way are successful in giving the Com
pany supply of materia), work will be
pushed this Fall. It is improbable
that an attempt will be mode to extend
the line north from Mishicot for a year,
unless the conditions should be greatly
changed to favor tne Company. Mr.
Higgins expresses greet confidence in
the success of a hue to Mishicot an ia de
sirous that the work be started.
