THE MANITOWOC PILOT.
VOLUME XLIV.-NO. 43. CITY COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS City Fathers Cut Assessor’s Claim From 100 Days Down to 70 and Disallow Clerks. CITY WILL NOT PAY FOR UNIFORMS Manitowoc Boiler Works Petition for Sidetrack to Enter Factory —Streets to be Improved. At the council meeting Monday even ingall the members were present. The meeting was called to order by the mayor, promptly at 7:80. On the report of the committee the bills of assessors Hubbard and Groll for one hundred days’ service and S3O for an assistant, was allowed at 70 days and compensation for an assistant entirely stricken off. Hereafter the assessor will receive in conformity with law pay for only 60 days. The council refused to pay A. H. Pohl S4O for the two police uniforms and if Mr. Pohl wants pay for them he will have to get it from the owners. The petition of the Manitowoc Boiler Works to be allowed to have a spur track enter its plant on south Sixth street was referred to the committee. Parties were present and remonstrat ed to the improvement of Richmond street but on the recommendation of the committee the street was ordered improved but work not to be begun un til next spring. Sixteenth street between Madison and Division was ordered improved. Trestik & Cos. received the contract to improve Main Street between Huron and New York Ave., the work to be completed within six months. Hydrants were ordered placed at Main and State streets and Fifth and Cleveland Avenue. The claim of Budycz to have the mon ey returned to him that he had paid August Dueno to have a tire alarm box installed m his saloon, and which box was removed by Chief Kratz was re fused . The plumbers were hauled over the coals for leaving the streets in such a wretched condition. The street com missioner ought to be held responsible for this. In other cities the contractor is compelled to put the street back into the same condition and they do it. But here every street has a ridge running along the center with ribs running off at every lot. Petitions for the improvement of a number of other streets were handed in and referred to the committee. After acting on a stack of bills the council adjourned. LABOR DAY SEPTEMBER 7 Day to be Fittingly Observed by All the Organizations in Manitowoc.

COMMITTED SUICIDE Tired of Life Wenzel Sladky Hangs Himself Monday afternoon the •14 year old daughter of Wenzel Sladky discovered her father’s body hanging in the barn. The alarm was given and people from all over flooded to the house but the body was not cut down until Dr. Fraser arrived about 10 miuntes after its dis covery. The foolish notion that a body cannot be removed except by an autho rized i*erson. is quite prevalent here. Dr. Fraser endeavored to restore life but finally pronounced Sladky dead. Here is again a case that shows what a man can do for himself. At the time of de°.th Sladky was 40 years old, he had formerly lived in the town of Kossuth being a prosperous well to do farmer and respected by all. But like many a one before him he got the notion that a saloon keeper had an easy life, and twelve years ago he sold his farm and came to town to embark in the boarding house and saloon busi ness. He soon became his own best customer and kept drifting down hill. As is usually the case so here also domestic troubles weie added to the financial ones and after a stormy scene Sunday night his wife concluded to get a divorce from him. When be was notified of this he became quiet and sullen and in the afternoon did away with himself. He leaves a wife and three children and an aged mother. It is a mournful fact that they will be able to get along better without him than with him. The funeral took place Wednesday morning at B’clock. DEATHS OF THE WEEK PAST OTHERSALL Saturday afternoon Robert Othersall died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ava Smith, of heart failure. Mr. Othersall had been born in England July 18, 1834. When he was still a small child his parents came to this country and settled in Kossuth There on the farm he grew up and when the war broke out lie enlisted in the 21st Wisconsin, fighting 4 years that our country might live, receiving an honor able discharge in 1865. After the war ho came back to Manitowoc engaging in various businesses and in the last as U. S. mail driver he has been known to all. This spring feeling himself growing old he resigned the position and since then has been living with his daughter. Mr. Othersall reached the age of 69 and out of a family of 17 only two sisters survive him, besides these he leaves two sons and three daughters The funeral took place Tuesday after noon, the G. A. R. of whose organiza tion he was a member, attending in a body. WESTHHAL George Westphal, the 15 year old son of Louis Westphal, died Saturday after a brief illness, thus closing prematurely a y >ung life that had good prospects. The funeral took place Monday after noon from the residence on S. 19th street. A six month old baby of Mr. and Mrs. J. Johnsrud died last week. It was buried Friday afternoon, Rev. Merrill officiating. The Driving and Riding Clubs Matinee The matinee last Friday was but poorly attended but the races were in teresting just the same. The result was as follows: 1.20 CLASS 1.

HORSES STRIKE LIVE WIRE Causes Excitement on Hamilton Street But No Injury is Done. Monday evening a charged electric wire hung to the ground at the corner of Seventh and Hamilton streets. A horse and buggy came along when sud denly the horse came in contact with the wire and was thrown to the ground. The horse was assisted to get up and had scarcely gotten out of the way of the wire when another rig arrived. A warning was shouted to the people but they never heeded it until suddenly their horse went down, breaking the fils in the fall. The current only stunned the animal temporarily and all the parties escaped with none the worse for their experience. These live wires about town are getting a little too nu merous and caution ought to be exer cised before a serious accident happens. BICYCLE RIDER NEARLY KILLED Takjs a Bad Fall on the Green Bay Road. Is All Right Now. Friday, Charles Bne'slatte and Eddie Kerscher started for the Coo()erstown Caves on their bicycles. A short dis tance before reaching the hotel the road has a long and dangerous decline. Both of the riders attempted to coast down the hill. Ed Kerscher being in ad vance. but Charles gained on him, till he suddenly realized that he would have to run into his companion or take the gutter, he took the latter, and a few moments later the neighbors carried him from the road and laid him on the grass. But you can’t kill a Canada thistle by knocking it down, and so Charles revived and is about town again as happy as a lark. Next time when Charles is going to coast down a hill he will walk.

C., Aug. is, The personality of the democratic ua tional ticket continues to be the most talked of political subject in Welling ton, When General Miles retired on August 8, and his retirement was an nounced by a stereotyped older, signed by Corbin and unaccompanied by a word of congratulation or commenda tion on his long and faithful services* the possibility of German ami Miles as the democratic nominees became a sub ject of general discussion but soon re ports began to come from the South which dissipated the idea that Milt's could ever become a democratic candi date. It was shown that Hie Southern ers had never forgiven Miles fur putting Jefferson Davis in irons and in some cities of the South, Miles’ retirement had been celebrated. In Atlanta the state house had been decorated with Hags and bunting in honor of the occa sion. It is generally held in Washington that Senator Gorman is today the strongest possibility ami the Maryland statesman's friends maintain that, as leader of the minority in the Senate during the approaching session, Mr. Gorman will gain new laurels and will enter next summer’s campaign with not only the confidence of his own party but with tiie approval of that large element of the republican party which rebels at tlie “stand pat" policy of the adminis tration and desires moderate tariff re form, especially in those schedules which have been raised to their present high altitude at the demand of Hie trusts. “Sound money and moderate tariff re vision’’is the platform fur which Sena tor Gorman stands and it is evident from the attitude of the eastern press that he is regarded as a very strung candidate, by republicans as well as democrats. Another payability has loomed upon the horizon recently in the person of Judge Gray of Delaware. Judge Gray undoubtedly profited much in public opinion by the fairness with which he presided over the Anthracite Coal-Strike Arbitration ('on.mission and (he equity of the deci-ion of that commission re flected credit on all its members and doubtless insured to Judge Gray a place in the affections of the labor element. Now Judge Gray is again acting in the capacity of peacemaker between labor ami capital. He is presiding over the commission called into existence to ad just tlie differences between the Ala bama coal operators and their employes. Delaware, though a small and southern state, is a doubtful one and it is regard ed as not improbable that Judge Gray's name will figure prominently before the democratic national convention. When asked recently if he would entertain the nomination Judge Gray declined to dis cuss the subject. Just where ex Senator David 11. Hill stands these days is also a subject of speculation by politicians. Mr. Hill has long been silent, but that he will figure in the c> i vent ion as a dark horse is believed by some very astute politi ciaus, who claim that Mr. Hill advanced the claims of Judge Parker with a view to riveting attention on Now York hut with the knowledge that the Judge would never receive the nomination and that any boom he might receive would be premature and could never survive a long cold winter Speaking of political possibilities your correspondent learns from authoritative, although confidential sources, that the situation in Wall street is causing grave ! concern to the republican leaders. A valiant effort is being made to put a brave front on and republican newspap er correspondents are lieing asked to state that there is nothing to he feared, that the liquidation is confined to Wall Street speculators, that it cannot affect the general prosperity and, in general, to write dispatches calculated to uphold the hands of the hulls and counteract the almost inevitable consequences of the liquidation The market is in a pe culiar condition. There is no lack of money hut public confidence is lacking. Thus far the capitalists have been obliged to let go only their good stocks and even they Lave sold low, but if the time comes, as it is feared it will, when the brokers and others have to let their poor things go there will follow a geoer al panic which will bring to an end the boasted era of prosperity which is cal cnlated to elect Mr. Roosevelt. If the prosperity of the West weathers the present liquidation the general situation will be safer than it has lieen for some time but. as a prominent republican financier describes it, "the amputation has taken place and gangrene basset in. If the doctors (Morgan et al) can check it and heal the stump the patient will be better off than before, but if the ! gangrene spreads; well you can see what the result will be." Secretary Root is to retire from the Cabinet, not immediately but probably some time in December. Mr. RisU's re tirement will be a serious loss to Presi dent Roosevelt who has long been oppos ing it,for in all the cabinet there are but two men on whose judgment Theodore Roosevelt relies, hut two men who can influence him for his own good when he has determined upon an injudicious step. Those men are Hay and Root and of the two Root is, in many instances, the more influential. It is generally be lieved that Governor Taft will succeed Secretary Root. Through the operation of the general staff plan, the direction of the army, which has heretofore de rolved on the Secretary of War, lias de volved on tile staff ami “with a compe tent staff of experienced army officers a thorough incompetent could do little harm as Secretary of War." I quote a prominent naval officer who was advo cating the staff plan for the navy to make up for the deficiencies of Secretary Moody. The serious problems which are likely to arise in the War Depart merit in the near future will, therefore, concern the Philippines and it is be lieved that Taft's familiarity with Phil ippine conditions would make him a valuable officer of the administration. ■Postmaster General Payne is sched uled for retirement, as soon as it can be said that he is not "retiring under lire", and the old story that Secretary Wilson is to resign, to make a life position as president of the lowa Agricultural <'< >1 lege, is again in circulation. THE BIG INTERNATIONAL RACE Shamrock and Reliance Sail Today for the Cup Today off Sandy Hook the race be tween the two liest sail boats of the world will be run. The distance will he 80 nautical miles, equal to about 844 land miles. The course being 15 miles to windward and return.

TEACHERS’ INSTITUTE NOW IN PROGRESS The Most Successful Institute Ever Conducted at Manitowoc Closes Friday 118 TEACHERS WERE ENROLLED Special Lectures on the Need of the Country Schools Were Given Every Afternoon The teachers’ institute held in the north side school closes its weeks work tomorrow, Friday, and was the most successful ever held in the county. Every year since Suierinteudent Chris tiansen lues been at the head of onr school has marked an increase not only in the nnmber of attendance,but also of the interest taken in the work Scholars were enrolled only for the first two days and then the number of 11H was reach ed, The institute was conducted by Professors Hewitt of Oshkosh and Land graf of Marinette assisted by Professor Hyer and Snpt. Christiansen from here. The attendants were divided into divi sions and work in Arithmetic, History. Reading and Agriculture was done while in the afternoon of every day special lectures on the “Needs of the Country School” were delivered by the conductors. State superintendent of schools Cary visited the institute the opening day and expressed himself as well satisfied wiili tlie attendance and work done. There was only one remarkable thing about the institute and that was the absence of the city teachers. This was all the more so as a number of them are very weak In just the work that is Isdug done at the institute. Every person that desires to be up to date in any particular business finds that he or she can learn by coming in contact with other people and especially by meet ing those that are recognized as under standing that particular work. Onr city s< hinds pay high wages and have a right to demand good service in return therefore and if the lassies and laddies do not deem themselves aide to learn anything they also cannot complain if their services bring a lower price.
