A NEW BRICK PLANT To be Establish at Once, in This Citv- COMPANY HAS BEEN ORGANIZED With SIO,OOO Capital Nearly all of Which Was Subscribed in Ten Minutes, the New Company Will Begin Busi ness. Anew industry has been add ed to those already here. An in dustry of no small proportion, which will eventually grow to be one of the largest in this part of the state. Last Saturday even ing a number of persons who are interested in the development of the brick industry in this city met at the Commercial Club rooms, and a company was organized with a capital stock of $10,000.00 for the purpose of manufacturing brick. Nearly $7,000.00 was subscribed within ten minutes after the prelimin aries were arranged, and stock has now all been subscribed. The affairs of the old temporary organization, formed for the pur pose of making the tests of the value of the clay for making brick, was closed up and anew company was organized with E, E. Kenfield temporary President and H. P. Axel berg temporary Secretary. Permanent officers will be elected as soon as all the details of the organization have been completed. The money to be put into the plant will be furnished to some extent by outside parties. C. C. Frampton of Phillipsburg Kansas was present and gave evidence of his confidence in the venture by subscribing for a large block of the stock of the company. Mr. Prampton will move here, and will take active charge of the enterprise this spring. The other heavy stock holders are E. E. Kenfield, M. A. Sprague, O. A. Lamoreaux, Thomas L. Dukelow, E. C. Stevens, EE Kenfield of Ashland, Q, Brooks of Ashland, besides others who took smaller amounts of stock. The plant will be lo cated between eighth and tenth avenues south of Bayfield street, where clay deposits have been found. Modern and up-to-date machinery has been ordered and will be installed as soon as it ar rives. The plant to begin with will have a capacity of between twenty and thirty thousand brick per day, and will be en larged later. Mr. Framptoti who is a partical brick man says that there is here a splendid opening for the institution, good brick clay may be found any place in and around the city, the market, is practically unlimited, and there is no reason why the plant should not be a paying venture from the very beginning. Thus one by one we are adding industrial institutions to the city, and the end is not yet. The Indigestion is much of a habit. Don’t get the habit.

Individual members of the club are one the lookout for these things. So far as the brick plant is concerned too much credit cannot be given Mr. Ken field for his interest in th e matter, he has spent time and money to make a through in vestigation of every detail of the industry. He has interested outside capital in the matter, he has been istrumental in interest ing local people in the matter of making tests of the clay, and the city has been immeasurably benefited.

TO OPPOSE JENKINS Assemblvman 0. G. Kinnev of Col fax is the Man. HAS ANNOUNCED CANDIDACY Mr. Kinney is One of the Prominent Mem bers of the Legislature, Has Served Two Terms, is Chairman of Com mittee on State Affairs. Assemblyman O. G. Kinney of Colfax, member of the Legis lature from Dunn County, has announced his candidacy for the office of Congressman from the Eleventh congressional district in opposition to Congressman John J. Jenkins. Mr. Kinney is well known in this city, both in a business and social way. He has served in the legislature during the last two terms, and his record there is said to be ex - cellent. He was chairman of the committee on State Affairs dur ing the last term. This is one of the most important commit tees in the legislature. Mr. Kinney has issued the following statement: After careful consideration and h,fter having consulted and advised with friends throughout the district I have decided to be come a candidate at the pri maries to be held in September next for representative in Con gress from the eleventh con gressional district. The republicans of Wisconsin have during the recent years served as the advance guard for reformation in legislation and in administrative methods which are a* important in the nation as in the state. With this move ment in Wisconsin I have been, and am, in full accord. My re cord as a member of the assem bly during the last two sessions of the legislature is the best evidence I can offer as to my views in public affairs. If elected I pledge my best efforts to faithfully represent the district on subjects of gen eral legislation, and to support such measures as stand for a representative form of govern ment. Further, I believe that the public service corporations should be subjected to such reasonable control as shall ab solutely abolish discrimination, and best subserve the general public, and that legislation of tnat character is essential and no longer to be postponed. I believe in the policies ad vocated with such ability and patriotism by President Roose velt and shall, if elected, do what lies in my power to aid in enact ing them into law. O. G. Kinney. The following editorial appears in the Dunn County News: The News publishes this week the announcement of Hon. O. G. Kinney of Colfax as a candidate for the republican nomination for member of congress of this district at the primary election next September. Mr. Kinney enters the field at the earnest solicitation of friends from all parts of the district and is well equipped to make a vigorous canvass. He is now serving his second term as member of as sembly and his record in the legislature is beyond criticism. His fidelity to the principles of the republican party is assured by long service and he has been an influential factor in the great reform movement in this state from the beginning to the pres ent time.

A company has been incorporated to establish a wireless telegraph system for the use on the great lakes from Duluth to Buffalo. This was foreseen as soon as the development of wireless telegraphy arrived at a practical stage, but the advent of the system was not expected to take place so soon. Some of the passenger boats are now equipped with the wireless and the first steamer to make a round trip between Cleveland and Detroit this season was kept in con stant communication with both points. Delay, caused by ice, was explained to anxious friends of of ficials and passengers. The big marine interests will sup port the company placing the system in operation, and the corporation, is well furnished with capital. The work of putting in the plant will be begun this summer and the service will be for freight as well as passen ger boats. The Cleveland Leader, In refer mg to the proposed innovation, says: “Any boat anywhere on the lakes will be able at any time to communi cate with at least one station of the system. The advantages are mani fest and great. Wireless telegraphy will probably begin anew epoch for the lake marine. “Once in use it is likely to take on the importance of the telephone on land and become a necessity. The expense will be more than made up by reduced insurance rates, greater safety for the vessels which are be ing made bigger and more costly every year, and increased expedition in the dispatch of business.”—Du luth News Tribune. Court to Pass on Question. Orders to show cause have been served on President Clau sen and Secretary Hering of the School board, requiring them to appear before Circuit Judge Parish at Ashlandand show why the recent action of i . e School Board in requiring pupils to rent text books should not be vacated. Attorney Alvord has charge of the case for those who wish to test the validity of the board’s action. To Give Lecture. Winnifield R. Gaylord, of Mil* waukee, will give a lecture on the “Mission of Socialism ”at the Knights of Labor Hall, Tues day evening, March 20th. No admission will be charged. The Ashland News has the following to say to his lecture given in that city: He is one of the most eloquent and convincing speakers who has ever addressed an Ashland au dience. His talk yesterday ap pealed particularly to laboring men. It was delivered to them and for them, and he made a very favorable imprestion. He is not only a very eloquent talker, but one who is very logical as well, and those who heard him felt very fortunate that he had been secured for the main Labor Day address.—Ashland (Wis.) News. Good Investments. Copper Stocks which are listed on the Boston Exchange (do not buy any other) are better investments that anything you can buy in the United States. Why leave your money in the bank where you only receive three per cent when you can double it in a short time by buying Adventure, Victoria or Mass. Nothing like them for an investment it is a sure thing. I had one trader make over a thousand dollars last week on the short side of May wheat and a num ber made from $25 up from small investments. All those who have taken my advice in years past are in comfortable circumstances like myself. A number of my traders are rich and gone to California on their profits this winter. There is a good chance for you, if you will take my advice. I have been in the business for twenty years and my advice should be good and it always is. You never hear of anyone losing money with me. Buy wheat and make money like finding it. I can refer you to any bank or busi ness man in the city. J. W. Spear, Broker. Marquette, Mich.
