We are Mighty Sorry.
The Methodist church conference
which was held at Antigo and terminat
ed Tuesday, treated this city in a man
ner to arouse our righteous indignation.
Hie bishop, in making the assignment
of ministers to the various charges in
the state, assigned Rev. M. L. Eversz
who had been with us for several years,
to the church at Amigo, which accord
ing to a rule which is recognized in the
conference gives the church in which
the conference is held, the privilege of
naming the minister they want—and
the church chose Rev. Eversz—and. of
course, we cannot blame them, fr the
members undoubtedly appreciate a good
man when they see him.
W hen Rev. Eversz came here, the
membership of the Mt thodist church was
small and they worshipped in a small
wooden church edifice, which under the
activity of Rev. Eversz, was removed to
make room for the new church, which is
a credit to the city and society. The
membership and congregation has in
creased, and the church become active
in every good word and work, exerting
a benificent influence in the city.
Rev. Eversz is a Christian in the
broadest and best sense of the word, ac
tive in every department of spiritual
endeavor, while tenacious for the ad
vance of his church, kindly disposed
toward all ether co workers in Christian
labor regardless of denominational lines
regarding every follower of the cross as
a brother and sister in the great army
serving the master.
Rev. C. J. Mathews was assigned to the
Watertown church and comes highly
recommended as a minister and no
doubt will receive a cordial welcome.

side shoe merchant, was astonished upon
entering his store to discover that dur

smashing a window in the rear of the
store and departing with ten pairs of
men’s shoes and a few pennies left in
the cash register which was opened. A
noise was heard by those living in the
vicinity of the store about 2 a. m., but
no attention was paid to it, because of
the excitement in the city occasioned by
the fair.
