TRAIN KILLS PEDESTRIAN. When the train that runs on the Two Itiyers branch reached that city last Saturday morning the train crew dis covered a man’s cap and a pair of gold rimmed eye glasses on the locomotive. On the way back to Manitowoc they kept a sharp lookout and found the body of Frank Gleicb on the truck near Evergreen cemetery. The body was badly mutilated and was not iden tified for hours until A1 Norris, a horseshoer recognized the body as that of Gleich who had lately been in his employe as a horseshoer. He left Sat urday morning, telling his family ttyit he would spend the diTy with his wife's brother Gustave Kummer at Four Corners. He was doubtless taking a short cut to that place along the track when the train hit him about 0:35 and the body remained undiscovered until the train returned from Two Hi vers. Gleich was hard of hearing. He was 05 years of age and was born in this county. He was an expert blacksmith. He is survived by his wife and a daugh ter, Miss Addie. An inquest was not deemed necessary. MODERN THEATRE PROJECTED. George Brothers, confectioners and gum manufacturers, have purchased two lots fronting on Jay street forming an “L” with their Eighth street store and will in the near future build on the property a modern theater build ing of brick, concrete and steel and will be the latest word in furnishings.

The lobby opening off Eighth street will he attractively filled up and will have tile floors. The new theater will h;.ic a seating capacity of 1300 to 15( 0, pi v ibly mere. • The o|>eiiing of the new theater will probably be the occasion of presenting a stellar aftracion and will be a big event in Hie community. COULDN'T MAKE CURVE. “Death turn” in the Calumet road between Silver Lake and the city is harmless looking enough in the day time. There seems to lie no necessity there for piling up in the ditch. There was a belief that after July I drivers would find no great difficulty in turn ing their automobiles around that cor ner in coining in from Silver Lake. However, it probably is a little decep tive at night and turns at a sharper angle than one unfamiliar with the road expects. Early last'Sunday morn ing Adolph Kressc of Sheboygan, driv ing an Oakland car, went off the road at this point. The car was nuoly dam aged. It contained five people and was coming to town at a good clip about ‘2 a. m. A girl was badly cut over an eye and Kressc was severely cut and bruised. The rest received minor injuries. When Kressc got back to the scene from town to get the car some thieves had stripped it bare of everything loose and detachable. PLANTS REOPEN AT TWO RIVERS After being shut down fur three weeks, the Hamilton and Aluminum Goods plants were opened Tuesday morning and officials of tbe Aluminum Goods company claim that about 71) per cent of their employes returned to work and more are expected to return each day. The men who remained loyal to the employers and who have remained at work will receive protection from Sheriff Brennan and by more than a hundred deputies who were brought here for that purpose. There wn no trouble when operations were resumed at the shops this morning and none is anticipated, but tbe deputies will re main here until the authorities are as sured that the trouble is entirely over. Little more than one-third of tbe em ployes of the two plants of the Alumi niiin oGods company joined the strike, it is said, and on tbe last day on which the plants were operated nearly two thirds of the men reported for work. In plant No. 1 it is said that one-third of the men joined the strike while at plant No. 4 not to exceed 10 per cent walked out. The plants of the Eggers Veneer Seating company, Wisconsin Manufac turing company and Kohlenberg Bros, company which were affected by the strike, are all running, but not with full crews. Employers feel confident that all difficulties wili soon be settled and conditions about tbe plants will re turn to normal.—Two Rivers Chroni cle. ®|i e Pilot OBITUARY. Daniel Tracy, a well known resident of Manitowoc, succumbed to an Illness of several weeks this morning at 6 o'clock at the hospital where he was taken a week ago. Tuesday evening in an effort to save his life an operation was performed for prostate ectomy but it was of no avail. Mr, Tracy was horn in Kings County, Ireland and was 70 years of age. Ue came to America with his parents when 7 years old. The family resided at Buffalo, N. Y, for a few years and came to Manitowoc In 1854 and settled on 100 acres of wood land in Liberty where the deceased grew to manhood and assisted his father in clearing the land and after some years they had converted the woods into one of the finest farms in Liberty. He received liis education in the public school and when he became a man he was promin ent in local affairs. He was twice married. His lirst wife was a Miss O’Rourke who died shortly after their marriage. A few years later he mar ried Miss Catherine Morrissey of Maple Grove who survives him. Mr. Tracy was a genuine Democrat and always took an active interest in politics. He was director of his school for many years and was chairman of Liberty for some time. He repre sented the second assembly district in Madison in 1887-89 serving for two years. lie was a candidate for sheriff on the Democrat ticket in 1894 but was defeated by an absurd story that he had said something uncompli mentary of a certain nationality. Dan Tracy was absolutely without national tdgotry. There was no boy ever rats ed in Manitowoc county with less of national intolerance in his nature than Dan Tracy. He til led every position of trust bo held with credit. He was a man of sturdy character, honest and outspoken, true to his friends and to his pi inciples. He made a trip to Ireland in 1381 and ’’‘sited the scene of his childhood r< turning toe following year. Some 30 years ago he sold the fa r m and re moved to this city and for the past twenty years conducted a hotel and saloon on Tenth and Marshal streets. He rented the place over a year ago and has since lived a retired life. In the death of Daniel Tracy Manitowoc suffer-, the loss of .’o benest r.nd up right man and a citizen of the highest type. Peace to his soul. The funeral services will be held Saturday morning from Sacred Heart chutcfa. interment will be in St. Isidores cemetery in Meeme. Joseph Aueriniller, aged 71 years, died Tuesday morning at tlie hospital, after a long illness. He was born in Germany and came to this country when a young man. lie was married in this eity in 1 H73 to Mary Kulil, who with Cue children survives him. The children are George and Mrs. 11. Mas sopusl of Green Hay, Edward of De troit, John of Chicago and William at home. Mr. Aueriniller conducted a saloon and restaurant at the corner of Frank lin and Thirteenth streets for thirty five years, lie retired about two years ago and turned the management of the place over to his son Michael, who died from the inflnensa last spring. The funeral was held this morning from SI. Boniface church. Interment was in Calvary cemetery. G. H Dickson, who for many years was engaged in business here died at the hospital Krieay after an illness of several months, aged *ll years. The deceased was, horn in Quebec, Canada, November 2, 1808, and came to this city over twenty years ago. Besides his wife he is survived by two daughters, Mrs. John Staudtand Mrs. I’aul DeLeon. The funeral was held Saturday after noon from the Presbyterian church. Interment was in Evergreen cemetery. LIEUT. PRIMM ON WAY HOME. Lieut. C. J. I’rimm, who lias been with the American forces in northern Russia for many months sailed from Archangel last Friday, according to a cablegram received by Mrs. Primm. His regiment, the .'l.'litth, sailed for home sccvral months ago but Lieut. Primm, on the eve of departure, received or ders to remain with headquarters in the Archangel region, lie is not ex pected here for over a month. FIRE AT CONVENT. There was a (ire discovered in the engine room at Silver Lake convent one day last week which threatened to be a serious matter. An attempt was made to hold it in check and an S. O. S. was sent to the city (ire department. The new motor pumper started away and fairly burned up the Calumet road till it came to the “rocky" road be yond llasenfus's. No road could stop the high powered vehicle and it churn ed thiough the clay and put the fire out before it had much of a start. It surely proved its utility. The appar atus left the station at Il;t5 and was hack at 12:23. The damage was only about 1100. VIOLATEGAME LAWS. Conservation Warden Kgan is get ting peeved over numerous reports of violations of game laws and has started to bring in offenders. Me says that he is going to get all of them. There are reports of the use of searchlights and duck calls before sunrise and other violations of the provisions made by our state elders at Madison. Monday Charles Berlin of Kohler and Frank Zettler of New Holstein were in muni cipal court for infractions of the game laws. Berlin had offended the peace and dignity of the state by presuming to shoot a hell diver from a boat in open water. The manner in which this bird with sinister name may he gath ered in is carefully and thoroughly de fined somewhere among the 3,000 game laws of the state and Berlin paid S3O and costs for not knowing how, or knowing how, not doing it as the statute prescribes. /.ettluer’s offense was more heinous. He paid SSO and costs for not being provided with a hunting license. In a state where a man must have a license to shave the hack of your neck or sell a vacant lot for you or apply cold cream to “milady's” nose one ought to know without being told thgt he cannot shoot at a telephone pole without having a license. BASE-BAIL The Lake Shore league season wound up in a sea of mud. The game with Sheboygan postponed on account of rain u week before was started before a good crowd last Sunday. In the sec ond inning a drizzle set in but the ath letes kept doggedly at it. They came under shelter while it poured for a while and then went out and finished the game in the rain, puddles and sticky clay. Considering the conditions it wasn’t a bad ball game. Buster Brown, as usual, had the Manitowoc boys hog tied and branded without ex erting himself. The big feature of the game was a triple play executed by the visitors. It happened thus: Manitowoc had the buses filled. Peebles, at hat, hit sharp ly to the shortstop who pegged it home whence it was relayed to first in time to cut off t'.e batter. This not being enough side, the first base man whipped it home and it was placed on Pete Herzog, who had started from second base. The game was as funny as a Chaplin film. The result ? Oh! yes. Sheboygan won, 1 to 0. It was a bit humiliating for the league champs to be bested by their favorite rivals in the closing game but Buster Brown and Old Man Luck may be blamed for it. CHECKING UP TRAFFIC. A “census” of traffic on three state highways, Numbers 10, 17 and IN, in the county was taken on September 17 and again on tbe ‘2lst. Sunday, tbe ‘2lst, was a rainy day. It ruined all afternoon cutting down the traffic to a small fraction of what it probably would have been had there been fairly decent weather. The following is the tabulated result of tbe figures gathered by the highway patrolmen: XH H > s ® 3 ® -• 3 S' g, 2.

OCTOBER 2, 1919. ITEMS FROM THE PILOT FILES FIFTY YEARS AGO Ten years ago, our country was at peace, under a Democratic Govern ment, and it cost only about eighty millions of dollars per annum to pay all the government expenses. Since that time the Republican party passed through a bloody and expensive war, and more than four years ago, that party declared that we had no more war.—That the last hostile giin had been captured, and the country again at peace. That party yet remains in power, and the people pay nearly three hun dred million of dollare for a poorer government than used to be for eighty millions. Why is this? Why arc three hundred million of dollars annually drawn from the people, when less than one-third of the amount ought to he sufficient? The surplus two hundred million, is a steal. It is paid out to useless officials, for useless services, or for no services. It is used only us a corrupt party knows how to use money. It goes into the coffers of Republican office holders. It goes to pay their private pleasure hills. It goes to pay the expenses of Grant and his whole cabinet, while on a pleasure trip to Long Branch, “and around.” It goes in a thousand illegal, and dishonest ways. And still the taxpayers of the country quietly submit and pay. They never ask,, for they know that they cannot learn where the money goes to that they pay. They know that when they buy a pound of tea, they pay at least a dollar to the govern ment, a pound of tobacco a dollar, and so on for everything they are com pelled to buy. And when a farmer has figured up his accounts at the end of the year, he finds himself no richer by his work, even though he has been blessed with large crops, and large prices. And this state of things will last just so long as the Republican party is in power, and no longer. Then give us a change of rulers. It matters not what party succeeds (o power, it can be no worse than the Republican. Peter Johnson is moving his large warehouse from the west end of his pier to his dock on the river pier. Peter does not intend to keep out of the way of business. When it moves he moves. TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO At the meeting of the Manitowoc County Democratic club on Saturday last, John Frans was elected first vice president and Dr. Luhniann second. The executive committee selected was Ernst Wagner, Frank Blesch, Victor Klinghols, John Staudt, Win. Witt and P. J. Pierce. Gottlieb Dander was elected treasurer. The vicious clement of the city con tinues to make trouble, hast week the fountain was again plugged up and in such a way as to make it difficult to set it going again. It wouldn’t be a bad idea for the city to offer a reward for the apprehension of the scoundrels. They should be shown no leniency when found. Married.—At the St. Johannes Luth eran church in Newton by Rev. A. I>. Pieper on Saturday, Septendier 29, Mr. August Mahnke of Sheboygan and Miss Theresa Wolter of Newton. Albert Schultze of Schleswig, a lad 17 years old, lost one of his eyes by an accident, about ten days ago. He was putting a shell in a gun and it stuck. He proceeded to hammer it in with a stone. The shell exploded and he was struck in the eye. He was taken to Milwaukee and it was found necessary to take his eye out. A lawsuit of a peculiar nature is on trial at Mlshicot. Floyd Westgatc and Win. Clausen, two candidates on the populist ticket, hud a meeting called at the Half Way House in the town of Two llivers. While one of them was speaking the proprietor of the hall stopped him and said he diil not want his hall used fur any such purpose. The meeting broke up and the proprietor was Sued for disturbing a meeting. T. W. Hogan has been renominated for district attorney by the democrats of Langlade county, T. W. Ward was nominated for clerk of the court. Moth were formerly residents of Newton, this county. Jule I.indstedt has plans prepared for a residence which he will erect on the property he lately purchased. The conceit of these people who mis take notoriety for fame is phenomenal. John 1,. Sullivan, while driving about Washington recently stopped at the White Mouse, hut as It was undergoing repairs he was refused admittance. Me pleaded that he was better known than the occupant of the mansion hut even this did not prove an open sesame. Mr. and Mrs. George Groffinan leave next Tuesday for Denver, where Mrs, Gruifman will spend the winter. EDUCATIONAL. Secretary of the Treasury Carter Glass has sent out an appeal to the 20,- 000,000 school boys and girls of the country, urging them to continue the habit of earning and saving money and investing it in government securities. In addressing them as the producers, consumers and home makers of the fu ture, the Secretary of the Treasury praises the wonderful work the school children of America did during the world w ar in production of needed ma terials, saving of food and money and investment in War Savings Stamps and other Government securities. The text of tlie appeal is us follows: “In addressing the twenty million or more school hoys and girls of this country, 1 am addressing the citizen ship the business and professional men and women, the producers and consumers and the home makers of only a few years hence. The responsi bility of all the problems of our coun try will ultimately fall upon you. The spirit of patriotism and helpfulness which you displayed during the world war has proved your fitness for your future responsibility. Your record in production of needed materials during the war, your saving of food and money, and your investment in Gov ernment securities is a record of which every American citizen is justly proud. “It is the earnest desire of your Government that you should continuue to practice and make permanent those same habits of industry and economy, that through your influence and ex ample America may soon become a nation of savers and cease to he a wasteful nation; that this may he a nation of people who always save some part of their earnings, who spend money with greatest care, and who in vest what they save in some safe place. “I am glad to see that our school boys and girls have continued during the vacation months to save their money and are buying Thrift and TV ar Savings Stamps, thus laying aside u portion of the money they earn for some future purpose, and while they are continuing to render some service to their government, they are at Hie same time providing for their own needs. "The habit of corning and saving money is a most interesting and happy one. I am sure that this habit lias be come so fascinating to you that you will continue to earn and to save through all the months and years to come and keep investing what you save iu government securities. “It is my personal hope that the les sons of thrift that arc being taught in your school may help you to develop in your life permanent habits of saving and thereby lay a foundation for your personal happiness and usefulness and ultimately for a bigger and better America.” SCHOOL OF THIS HOMK The public school comes in for u good deal of scolding every once in a while on the ground that it does not do nil that it ought to for the American child. Is it not time somebody asked the question -are we not expecting too much of the public school '< We expect the public school to take the raw material and turn out a fin ished product often without any help and sometimes in the face of hin drances from the home. If John and Mary come from a home where good manners and morals are taught and their parents take a genuine interest in their development, the teacher will find her task made easy and pleasant. If the right kind of home influences and encouragement arc absent, the fact will in most cases he reflected in the child’s general conduct and interest in the school. Many parents take the position, per haps unconsciously, that it is the school’s business to make something out of their children and when the re sult does not answer their expectations they are very likely to assume that the educational system is wrong. The school has its imperfections and faults, but it must he recognized that the pri mary responsibility for what a child becomes rests with his parents, because they can deal with him as an individual and bci i isc the school cannot do its best work without their moral hacking and co-operation. A more general recognition of this partnership of school and home would help the home life and make possible the rendering of better service by the school. Milwau kee Journal.

Platt, displayed rare presence of mind that probably saved her some broken bones or worse in juries in an automobile accident Satur day night, She was returning trom the Country cluli driving a closed car. At the second street railway crossing near the club she edged over to the side of the road to allow another car to pass. \s she did so she felt the car slipping off the road and threatening to go down the embankment head first. She deliberately deserted the wheel and crawled over into the back seat. As she got over the car dropped eight feet and the empty front seat took most of the impact w hile the occupant crouched in the rear and suffered only a cut in a knee and some bad bruises.
