The old line republicans who have so blindly worshipped at the s> cine of protection for 10, these many years, will receive a jar that will loosen their teeth when they read the follow ing resolution which was passed by the Dunn county republicans iu conven tion, last Tuesday. “That many of the industries of this country have outgrown the need of a protective tariff is made evident by the fact that the American manufacturer lias entered the markets of the world and is successfully competing with the manufacturers of all other countries; many of the tariff schedules adopted- to foster infant industries have fully served that purpose and have now be come means of aiding and building up powerful trusts and combinations and cause those to exact from the Aineri can purchasers the payment of higher prices than they exact for the same class of goods sold in foreign countries. We, therefore, favor a revision of the tariff without unreasonable delay which will place upon the free list every article and product controlled by any monopoly and such other articles anil products as are beyond the need of protection. AFTER AN APPROPRIATION. There was a meeting of the Free Pub lic Library Board held last evening at the library room in the First N itional Bank building. All of the mem bet sof the Board were present, viz: Judge W. C. Silverthorn, president; Mrs I). L. Pi tuner, vice-president; Mrs. Dickens, secretary; E. C. Zimmerman, tie isurer; Mrs. S. M. Quaw, Messrs. Fred Getirieb, R. 11. Johnson, Snpt. Karl Math!**, who is tx-officio member, as Supt. of Schools of the city of Wausau. There were also present, Neal Brown, who has been ; t work with Mr. Carnegie for some time and Mrs. Margaret Trevitt who repie seuted the Ladies’ Literary club. The object of the meeting was to con sult its to the best way to proceed to secure an appropriation for th • five public library of Wausau from Andrew Carnegie, who has donated many millions of dollars for the instiut'.ing of free public libraries It w: dually de cided to make a request >i Mr Car negie, tl.e same coming fro.n the Board, as named above. It was voted that Supt. Karl Matliie draft a letter of rc quest to Mr. Carnegie and that the same be signed by each member >f the Board. It was thought that by pro ceeding iu this way that Wausau will have no trouble in securing the desired appropriation. ■ 1 ♦ ■■ ■ - Advertised Letters.

St. Paul, May 28.—Two interesting figures in the Memorial day parade next Friday will be former Gov. Alex ander Ramsey, the only living “war governor,” and the one who tendered President Lincoln the first troops at the outbreak of the Rebellion, and Col. Colville, who led the first Minne sota regiment in its famous charge at Gettysburg. These two historic men will be given a place of honor in the veterans’ division, and will be in charge of Adjt. Gen. Libby as special aide. The veterans of the First Miuucsota, under command of Col. J. R KiDg, the first volunteer of the war, will act as escort. inere will be three veterans of the Mexican war in the parade, Sergeant Maj. Simeon P. Folsom and Corporal Isaac P. Wright, members of the ouly Wisconsin company in the war, and George W. Biennan a member of the Sixth United States infantry. Both Mr. Folsom and Mr. Brennan were soldiers in the rebellion. Mr. E. A. Rowley, a clerk in the “Classified Service,” and at present assigned to the United States Land office in this city, enlisted in the First Minnesota Regiment in April, 1861, and at the first battle of Bull Run, received four wounds, two in the head, one in the hand and a musket ball in the right hip, the bullet still remains iu his hip and was received just before the retreat commenced; befell and was supposed to be killed. He was leL ou the field from Sunday noon till Monday night, was then picked up* by the Confederates, taken to Manassas Junction, placed in ?. coal shed and remained there till Wednesday night when he was loaded in a box car with other wounded and taken to Richmond arriving there Thursday noon and was four days without food or doctor and placed in a hospital, with about 500 other wounded Yankees and the same number of John nies, they were cared for by the same doctors and by Sister* of charity from some institution iu the city, and Mr. Rowley attributes his recovery to the good care lie received from these people. He lay in the hospital for 13 weeks, was than removed to Libby prison, in De cember he was sent with others to Tus caloosa, Alabama, and in March was sent to Salesbury bull pen, in North Car olina, from there he was paroled in June, sent to New York City ou Gov ernor’s Island anti then to St. Paul, Minn., and from there to St. Louis, Mo., where he was discharged on account of wounds received, during the entire time. After leaving the hospital, Mr. Rowley was in prisons in charge of inhuman, tyranical, murderous Col. YVirtz, who afterwards had command at Anderson ville, and was responsible for the suffer ing and deaths in that pestilential hell hole. Soon after returning home, Mr. Row ley was offered commissions by three different Minnesota organizations, buj; on account of wounds and poor health he declined, but, later on he re-enlisted as a private soldier in the First Minnesota Light Artillery, joining his command at Cairo. Illinois, and went with Sherman to the sea. He was in the grand review at Washington, at the close of the war. Mr. Rowley had the pleasure with the old First Minn. Inf. of serving three months under command of General Winfield Scott, of the Mexican War fame. For the last thirty years since the war the First Minnesota lias had a re-union of the regiment in June. This year it will be in St. Paul. .1. J. Hill, of railroad merger fame, and an honorary member of the regiment, gave his check for SIOOO to help entertain the old boys, they will have two days of fun, and St. Paul is putting her best foot forward to entertain the boys, free of cost to themselves. They will re ceive the freedom of the city from the mayor. Mr. Rowley has had a positive command from Dick Gorman to be there, and hwill leave here on the 10th, returning the 21st. !

Feldspar That may Have Commercial Value Discovered in the Town of Stettin. The following Irrief report of Dr. Weidniau ou a d>-posit of feldspar near Wausau, is printed for the information of the public. These deposits of feldspar were dis covered by Dr. Weidmau while in this section a few years ago, iu the employ of the VY isconsin Geological and Natural History Survey, and engaged in carry ing on au investigation of the geology of Central Wisconsin. The feldspar veius are of unsual size and it seemed worth while to devote some special at tention to them. This has been done and the results are briefly given in Dr. Weidnian’B report. The latest report of the United States Geological Survey shows that about 27,- 000 tons of feldspar were mined in 1899 and that the value of the feldspar ranged from $3 to $6 per ton at the quarry; the price depending on the quality of material. The feldspar near Wausau is present in large quantities. Itisfoundin veins solarge that they can be readily mined, and is favorably situ ated for transportation. The commer cial value of the deposit, however, de pends on its furnishing a material which will fuse to a white mass when used as a flux in pottery. The surface material investigated fuses to a grey mass aud is, therefore, not suited to this use. The analyses, however, show that the purest material is suitable for pottery use. It is, therefore, obvious that the commercial value of the de posits can be determined only by a thorough exploration, and it appears that the prospect of commercial value is sufficiently great to warrant such an exploration. This report, therefore, directs the attention of the owners of the property, and the public interested, to this subject. Following is the re port in full: Dr. E A. Biuge, Director Wisconsin Geo logical and Natural History Survey. Dear Sir:— ln accordance with your instructions I submit a brief prelimi nary report on the feldspar deposits near Wausau, Wisconsin. The feldspar deposits occur in an area live or six square miles in extent near the central part of the town of Stettin, seven or eight miles northwest of Wausau. They are found principal ly in sections 10. 11, 14, 15, 16, 22, 23, of T. 29, R. (3 E. The feldspar is in ap proximately vertical veins in quartz syenite, popularly known as granite, usually occurring in these veins in large crystals associated with a subordin ate amount of quartz and in some places with hornblende. The veins vary from a foot to ten or twenty feet in thick ness and occur at numerous places iu the above designated area. Three analyses of the feldspar from different veins of the area have been made, showing it to be quite uniform in composition. Numoerone was made NICHOLAS MARSON KILLED. Last Friday night a horrible accident occurred, which cost the life of one of our old citizens, Mr. Nicholas Marson. He was struck by the 9:57 passenger train, which was leaving this city for Marshfield and instantly killed. The engineer Fred Krahn, saw him lying on the track near the crossing oil Third avenue but was unable to bring his train to a stop and he was run over and literally cut to pieces. As soou as the train could be stopped the conductor, J. W. Conners sent word to Coroner Dickens of the accident, who at once went over and viewed the body. He deemed it unnecessary to hold ail in quest, and the remains were gathered up ami were couveyed to the under taking rooms of Ritter & Deutsch. * The body was so badly mutilated as to be unrecognizable, and while many supposed that it was Mr. Marson, it was necessary for Mrs. Marson to be called, who recognized the body as ihat of her hnsbaud by the clothes tb t he wore. It seems that Mr. Marson had started for his home from Roenier & Thalheim’s store about uine o’clock. He turned and walked south on Third avenue, crossing the railroad track anti was met by C. M. Flemming, who asked him where he was going, ami he re plied, he was going to walk a litt'.e aud then was going home. VVheu lie was near the German Lutheran church it seems he sat down for a time, where he was seen by some boys. He stopped them and asked them to help him get up. He complained of a pain iu the side ami of rheumatism, with which he had been troubled for some time. After that no one saw him until the accident. It was thought that he started to walk back towards his home and when reaching the railroad crossing he stumbled and fell and was unable to get up again. There are very few who believe that Mr. Marson committed suicide, but that his death was caused as above stated. i Nicholas Marson was iu the sixty third year of his life He was born in Germany on the ltlh day of April, 1810, a’id came to this country iu 1877, and went to Caledonia, Minn., to reside. While there, for seven years, he was a teacher in the parochial school of St. Mary’s Catholic church of that place. Later he went to La Crosse and ac cepted a position with the Southern Minn. Railroad Cos. as surveyor, which position he held for three years, when he became foreman for the Coleman Lumber Cos., of LaCrosse. Deceased was united in marriage to Miss Mar garet Kroach in Inn.', and on that year they came to Wausau and for nine years conducted a hotel on the West Side lie was a kind hearted, generous man and there are many who will cherish his memory for the good deeds which he has performed. He leai es a wife and two daughters, the Misses Marie and Agues, and a brother, John P Marson, who resides in the town of Maine iu this county The fuueral was h* ld fioni the home, corner of Cal ion street and Third ave nue at 2 o'clock, Sunday afternoon. The pall hearers were Jacob Em ter, Joseph Har ler, Louis Salzman, Frank Stkneider, Jas. O’Brien aud August Rapt aeger. Excursion Rates to Kilbonrn Dells.

It is used t lesser extent 1n the manufacture of certain kinds of soap, polishing materials, and iu wood tillers. The essential quality of commercial pottery feldspar >a its capacity to fuse to a white mass wnen used as flux iu the ware. In order to test this quality fusion trials were made upon sma 1 and larger quantities of the feldsper. Small portions of the feldspar, a few ounces iu weight, were fused by me and of the ten trials made several showed fairly white, while others showed a gray discoloratiou. Larger quantities of the feldspar were sent to Mr. Kail Langenbeck of Zauesville, Ohio, who made fusion trials upoD portions of the feldspar weighing from twelve to fifteen pounds. Mr. Langenbeck made three trials of the larger qualities, all of which showed a grey discolora tion. Iu all of the trials thus far made, however, weathered feldspar has been used which was picked up from the surface of the ground, showing more or less discoloration caused by the, iu filtration of extraneous material. Mr Langenbeck, w* ,as a thorough knowledge c’ •’ manufacture and chemistiy of „c judges from tha above chemical analyses made from a small portion of fresh mineral, that the feldspars must he good in themselves and not responsible for the discolora tion siiown by the fusion trials. Pro fessors Dahiells and Lehner also Re lieve the grey coloration shown by the fusion trials is not due to the iron or other constituents shown iu the an alysis. If it is true that the discoloration is not due to the feldspars themselves, but to the extraneous matter filtered into them, the desposits are of value and are well worthy of exploration. In order to determine definitely the com mercial value of the feldspar, excava tions in the feldspar veins should be made, from live to twenty feet deep, at a number of favorable localities, aud sufficient portions of perfectly fresh mineral should be selected ami fusion trials made upon them. For a proper exploration of the feldspar iu the field and testing in the pottery laboratories considerable time aud money will have to be expended. I think it probable from my investi gation of the above deposits that the feldspar, if found to be of proper qual ity, occurs in sufficient, quantity for commercial purposes and can be read ily mined and transported. Respectfully submitted, S. Weidman. Geologist , AT MADISON. Well, anyhow, our boy's had compan ions in their retreat from Camp Ran dall without laurels: Oshkosh who has always been a candidate for a good place at these meets kept eompany with the “far away” city, along with many others; the Milwaukee West Division High School, twice winner of the enp, and looked upon as a strong adversary in this year’s contest, returned to the city of the brew with just exactly three points to her credit. Since “Misery Loves Company” >ve may console our selves with the thought that the “com pany” includes many schools with greater athletic pretentions than ours. Three pieces of bad luck we certainly had: Silverthorn fell in the 109 yard dash, Schofield had the worst piece of track in the 220, and iu the mile run Goetsch was just behind a runner who fell so our man went headlong over him. There was some exceedingly fast work done iu the field and on the track and several of the scliools that had been counting themselves in for a place at least, loft the field without it. Much credit is due the hoys and those who have coached and encouraged them for the hard work done even though it brought no results iu the form of hon ors at Madison. You can imagine how the Wausau contingent felt when news came from the great Conference meet held at Chi cago, while the Interscholastic was on at Madison, that our “Bre’v” had won the 880 yd. run. Breitkre*. has been winniug points for the U. W. right along at various places; he was one of the men sent to Philadelphia on the four mile relay team, aud while there made an excellent showing. The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athlet ic Manual, published by the Board of Control of Wisconsin High School Ath letics is the most complete hand book of high school track and Held athletics ever gotten out. It is illustrated with a number of Hue cuts of athletic teams aud star high school athletes of this state ami others, gives a short history of high school athletics iu all the states, • contains many interesting and coucise | articles on athletic subjects, high school ! athletic records front various schools, i biographical sketches of Wisconsin r c | ord holders (among them Breitkreutz, Fleming, and Werlivh.) athletic rules, 1 foot hall scores, score cards for the W. I A A. meet and Conference meet, ! aid many other items of interest. The book was gotten up aud the material i j collected from all over the United j ! States at the expense of a great deal j of hard work and reflects high credit | on its ditor, C. C Parlin. chairman of i the Board of Control, and his associate j editor, A R Schultz. The book stands as an expression of the opinions and j decisions of the state board of control of high school athleiics. But there were other things besides athletics going on at Madison Friday and Saturday as the Wausau teachers who amended can testify. On Friday morning at a general meet ing of high school teachers under the( direction of the University Faculty , subjects of general interest in the high ! school were discussed In the after- j noon the st ite declamatory conf* s: was held and the representative from Sparta j —on.' of our opponents at Stevens t Point—carried off Hrst honors of the j state. Friday evening the U W. Faculty ; gave a banquet to the high school teach- j ers whereat it is reported that ye peda gogues were fain to regale themselves with unwonted dainties ami testified: thFir appreciation of the spread by de- j vouring everything in sight Saturday morning was given tip to department meeting- in language, sci ence Htu!

Wausau as a Member of Wisconsin State League. The Greeu Hay base ball team de feated Wausau Friday in a closely con tested game. There was a large attend ance, over 800 paid adiuissious, which is an evidence that the game is popular here. Both pitchers were effective and for six innings it appeared as though the game belonged to Wausau the score standing 3 to 1 in her favor and then came that tateful seventh inning that was nearly always so disastrous to the home team last year. The fellows from the Bay lit outo Foulks and hammered out three rnis and they again made one in the eight, following is the score by innings: Green Bay .0 1 0 0 0 0 3 1 o—s0 —5 Wausau 0 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 o—3 Or. Sunday the home team played at Kaukauna and the score shows a miser able exhibition of ball playing on the part of the Wausau team although the boys claim it was a good game under couditions. Oinstead pitched for Kau kauua and threw good ball striking out twelve men, while Foulks for Wau sau w as substituted by Papenfuss in the fourth inning. The score: Kaukauna 0 1 1 0 3 5 ‘2 o—lß Wausau 1 0 0 0 0 2 0 o—3 The worst game of* the season was played at Manitowoc Suuday when Appleton slaughtered the team of that city by the score of 24 to 0. * # * In Friday’s game here John Diamond of Eagle ltiver, played left field for Wau sau and it was the first game in which he has taken part iu for four years. * * * Wausau plays at Sheboygan next Sun day aud a week later has a game at home with Appleton. There are several weak spots iu the Wausau team, especially so at second base. Beilis says lie will continue to strengthen as fast as he can secure the right kind of men. * * * The Nekoosa Paper Makers were de feated at Warren Park Sunday by the W ausau Stars.

Tomorrow in Judge Miller’s court there will be tried the ease of State of Wisconsin vs. Jos. Wesley. It appears that some time ago Wesley and Michael Fallaski, both residents of the town of Eau Pleine, engaged in an altercation and the latter not being much of a success as a pugilist received an awful beating. He was pounded so badly by Wesley that he has until just recently, been under the care of a physician. The case promises to be interesting as quite a few witnesses have been subpoenaed on each side. The local K. P. Lodge of this city, was visited last evening by Zeno M Host, G. €. C. and U. S. Burns, G. K. of R. and S. of Milwaukee. The third rank was conferred of Dr. S. B.
