JAGOBS-McDONNELL CO., Washburn, Wis. NELS NELSON TO BE POSTMASTER. Congressman Jenkins Makes the Announce ment that he will be Recommended. Private advices were re ceived on Monday from Con gressman John J. Jenkins that he would recommend the appointment of Nels Nelson for Postmaster of this city. Some recommendation had been expected for some time, but there was considerable speculation as to who would be the lucky man. It had been knoivn however that Mr. Nel son’s endorsement was ex ceptionally strong and that Mr. Jenkins looked with fav or upon him. The matter has now been set at rest and it is expected that Mr. Nelson’s name will go to the senate for confirmation within a few days. No one perhaps in the northern part of the state is better known to the people than the new appointee who came to Washburn when this was but a wilderness, and has served the public in many im portant positions. In 1897 he was a member of the town board, and subsequently served a number of years on the school board. In 1901 he was elected chairman of the town, defeating Dan Mcßeath who had held the office for two years. He was re-elected in spring of 1902 and in the spring of 1903 was again a candidate but was defeated by Fred T. Yates. When the city, was organized he was urged to become a candidate for the office of mayor. He did so but was defeated by the present incumbent. Judge Irish by only ten votes. In tb' r all of 1904 lie was a can didate for member of assem bly, but was beaten in the convention by only one vote. * jm ■mm H H 99j Present Postoffice building, upon which it is understood the government has taken a ten year’s lease. Mr. Nelson has also been in terested in Fraternal organ izations, and is at the present time National President of the I. S. W. A. The post office position in this city is a good one and the compensation is far above the average of like positions. At present the postmaster receives $2060.00 per annum as follows: Salary $1700.00 Clerk hire 240.00 Fuel and light 60.00 Fees for issuing mon- 1 j ey orders at the rate [ZIZJ of 3c for each order about. ffli.OO Total, $2060.00 Mr. Nelson, when he gets his commission has but to step into the office and as sume his duties. He w ( i)l not be required to purchase furni ture and fixures as former of ficials have done, as it is un derstood that the govern ment has leased the present building, including all the fixtures, for a period of ten years, the final approval of this arrangement having been made two weeks ago by Spec ial Inspector Gould who was here for that purpose. The contest for the posi of postmaster has been one of the most spirited in the history of the offce. Mr. Nelson was one of the first to announce his candidacy and secured a large petition of citizens. Mr. Jones the pres ent official who has served two terms was also a candi date. Mr. H. J. Finstad who was postmaster under Presi dent Harrison also became an active candidate, and Assem blyman L. N. Clausen about two months ago entered the field. • its -umhlHi SBHfTp gßalg f; HR* mfik- I ' W ■ Uk,~ a |H ■ EL *.

The following appeared in yesterday’s Evening Wiscon sin: Representative Jenkins has recommended the appoint • rnent of Nels Nelson to be postmaster at Washburn. There has been a lively con test over this office and a de termined effort was made to secure the retention of Post master J. E. Jones. On the showing made by the support ers of Nelson, Mr. Jenkens decided to recommend his ap pointment. McLeod Makes a Proposition. Attorney A. W. McLeod ap peared before a meeting of the depositors of the defunct Securi ty Savings Bank at Ashland last week and made an offer of $35,000 for the assets of the bank. The offer was rejected by the de positors. If they had accepted the proposition the affairs of the bank would have been wound up immediately and the depositors ! would receive about 40 per cent Jon the dollar. This would also have prevented the grand jury from probing into the affairs of the institution, which they will do inside of a month. The de positors are all anxious for an investigation as it was asserted when the bank suspended, that the assets would more than cover the liabilities, and that all would get 100 per cent on the dollar. A number of depositors live in this city. Fifteen per cent has already been paid on the de posits. May Run for Treasurer It has been rumored around town during the past few days that Fred Terrill would become a candidate | for the office of treasurer at the spring election, but when seen last evening by a Times man Mr. Terrill said that as yet he had not made up his mind to run, but was strongly considering the matter.

Duffy living on Pine street and Sixth avenue west. She has suffered for some time and her death was not un expected. She was one of the most popular young ladies in the city, and her death will be mourned by a great many. She was a graduate of the Washburn High School, with the class 1902, and was one of the brightest girls in school, which is indicat ed by the fact that she won the Wing Scholarship for that year. After graduating she taught school at Benoit one year, and was asked to remain, but her health was very poor and she gave up all work. Since then she has grown steadily worse aud it is said that she welcomed the end. Funeral services will be held at the St. Louis Catholic Church and the interment will be in the Catnolic Cemetery.
