BUILDING THE ROAD Work Done on New Railroad to Cornicopia. WILL BE FINISHED IN 60 DAYS Port Wing People Want Road to Their Town.— Talk That Omaha People are Interested, and May Wish to Ac quire New Line. Work is being pushed at a lively pace on the Bayfield, Lake Shore add W estern Railroad, and T. L. Stevenson, of Cornucopia, who has been the chief promoter of the en terprise, says that trains will be running into Cornucopia inside of sixty days. W. H. Johnson, of Su perior, has the contract for grading and bridge work for the last five or six miles of the road. Two miles was finished last fall, and this to gether with the old grade that is be ng utilized can all be had in shape by July Ist. The steel for the new road has been provided for, and the conductor be hollering “all aboard for Cornucopia” before the summer is half gone. It is the hope of those connected with the road, as well as with the people in the north ern end of the county, to push the newline through to Port Wing this fall, and this maybe accomplished, The Port Wing' people are very anxious to continue the line on from Cornucopia and may be able to make the necessary arrangements to do so. In connection with the new road there is a good deal of talk that the Omaha line is interested in the proposition, although this cannot be confirmed. It is said that the Omaha is furnishing the steel rails, and it is known that some of the officials have investigated the new line. '’Should the Omaha take a financial interest, *it is thought it would be their purpose to continue the line along the south shore of Lake Superior. This would give the company a direct line from Ash land, Washburn and Bayfield to the head of the lakes, and would enable them to compete more successfully for the business between the two points. Besides they would be tap ping anew rich strip of country that would furnish them a great deal of new business. Notes of M. E. Church. An Illustrated Sermon will be given next Sunday evening.

Bigelow, president of the First National bank of Milwau kee, and a man widely known m business and social circles is a de faulter to the bank in a sum amount ing to $1,2u0,000, and has resigned his position at the request of the board of directors of the bank. His arrest followed The money was taken from the bank at different periods and the books falsified to avoid discovert’. According to the directors, Henry Goli, assistant cashier of the bark and other employes, were involvtd in the crime. The news of the defalcation was broken to the directors on Saturday night. The full amount appropriat ed by Mr. Bigelow was $1,500,000 but he has’ made restitution in the shape of real estate and securities sufficient to reduce the amount to 1.200,000. The board of directors decided ai once to meet the issue in a straight forward manner and not to deceive the public in any particular. They accordingly formulated a pledge which was immediately signed bv members of the board, whose aggre gate will probably aproximate $25,000,000 to more than make good the shortage made by Mr. Bigelow’s act. The capitol stock of the bank is $1,500,000 and the undivided sur plus amounts to $1,200,000, The personal guaranty of the directors more than covers the defalcation, and with the surplus and undivided profits which the bank carries over and above its capitol, it is announced that the bank is more solid than it. was before Mr. Bigelows defalcation became known. Charles F. Pfister heads the guaranty list with $600,000. An intimate friend of President Bigelow said; '‘Wheat speculation has cost the Bigelows their name! and the bank a large sum of money. It is a family tragedy, as well as a shock to business circles of the city. The father Frank G. Bigelow, had Chicago speculative connections with the firm of Tracy & Cos., of which his son, Gordon Bigelow was a member. “In the late Armour-Gates wheat battle and the sharp fluctuations of the market, which have come during the last few days, Bigelow Sr., and B.gelow Jr , were badly caught. The faiiiily name has been of the highest in the city and the failure will come as a shock to all who know them.” The board of directors of the bank also decided that no attempt should be made to shield the chief defaulter and his associates in the crime from their full measure of punishment, and they will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. • Voice Culture Tuesday and Friday a. m. at the Hotel Washburn.

Mr. Tomkins was elect ed on the second ballot, receiving ten of the eighteen votes cast. Last year’s rules for the government of the board were adopted.

Noyes aud Robert Inglis were proposed. Mr. Morgan had nine votes on the first ballot, while Mr. Noyes had seven and Mr. Inglis iwo. Mr. Noyes lost as the ballot ing progressed, and it took eight bafiots to settle the election. On the eighth ballot Mr. Morgan had ten votes, while Mr. Noyes and Mr. Inglis had four votes each. A few bills for ’abor were acted upon, but most of them were referred to the several committees, vet to be ap pointed. and the creditors of the county will likely have to wait until next fall for their pay.
