Geo. YV. Bishop, former editor of the
Rhinelander New North, died at ten
o’clock Thursday morning at the North
ern hospital at Oshkosh. His affliction
was paresis, and death came after an
unusally bad spell of convulsions. He
had been in the asylum since April 19th
of last year, with the exception of
several months spent during the fall
and winter with his wife in California,
in the hopes of benefitting his health.
He returned to the hospital a few weeks
ago in a worse condition than before.
Mr. Bishop was forty-two years of age.
In 1897 was appointed by Gov. Scrtield
as a member of the board of contiol on
which he served several years. He
formerly edited a oaper at Lake Mills
and then went to Rhinelander ami
established the New North. He was
well known here in Wausau. In his
younger days he took an active interest
in athletics, and about twelve years ago
was often seen here on the base ball
field, he at that time being a pitcher of
great ability. One summer he was the
star twirler for the Wausau team, and
at the elose of the season was presented
with a silver base ball and bat by our
citizens. Before being seized with
paresis he was a jovial, whole souled
man, and well liked by acquaintances.

Thomas Ryan died at the Riverside
Hospital yesterday. May 30th, 1904, of
paralysis of the heart, He had been
sick for only a little over a week, there
fore his death was a great shock to bis
relatives and numerous friends. Mr.
Ryan was born in Ottawa county, Can
ada, on the 2*2nd day of May. 1858, and
was therefore in his 47th year. He
came to Wausau 21 years ago, and
most of the time since that has resided
here. He followed the business of a
mill-wr _.it, and was an expert man in
his line of work, and was liked by all
who hail the honor of his acquaintance.
For the past four years he has been at
work in the northern part of the state,
and for over a year with the firm of
Mather Bros., at their mill at the state
line. He was taken sick up there, and
was brought to this city last Tuesday.
He grew worse and died on the day
above stated. He leaves three brothers
and one sister to mourn his loss; John,
who resides in Canada; Chas. of Ash
land: Michael of Kelly, in this county,
and Mrs. J. M. Sullivan of this city.
The funeral took place this afternoon
at two o’clock, Rev. Fr. P. L. Gasper

A. H. Stange, and is a monument to the
generosity of Merrill’s most progressive
citizen. YV. S. Roberts is manager
of the opera house, and as be is a man
who has had considerable experience,
no doubt it will prove a place of enjoy

people are preparing to attend the
opening on Monday evening, and
arrangements have been made so that
our people can take the evening train

W. L. Covey. John Fehl and Henry
Switzer on Friday evening received a
number of cans of pike fry from the
state lish hatchery, containing about 60,-
000 fish. The latter two planted theirs
in Little Rib and Mr. Covey placed his
in Half Moon lake. Fish fry have Wen
planted in near by streams every year
for a great many years back, without
much apparent increase in the number
of grown tish. There are two reasons
for this. Many of the small tish are eat
en by the larger ones and the larger
ones are killed bv dynaiuirtes and net
fishermen. When the two latter are
made to desist in their work there will
be plenty of tish. A number of Wau
sau parties have made application for
brook trout fry but the lish hatchery
can not furnish any of this species this
year. The reason for this the Merrill
Advocate explains, is that the employes
of the tish hatchery have Wen neglect
ing their duty by devoting their time
in hustling delegates for the governor.
However, in the near future, a nmnWr
of cans of some other species of tish will
be brought here aud plan tint.

this being mostly due* to the fact that

likewise well attended, and services
were carried out according to the pro

listened to with the closest attention by
the large audience and particularly by
the old grey haired veterans.
There was not a hitch in the execu

Mr. Mueller addressed his old com
rades as here stated:
Again we have come to that season
of the year, when in accordance to the
mandates from the powers that be and
ui pursuance to a now long established
custom, a day is set apart as a national
holiday, called Memorial Day, and
which ought to be observed by every
loyal eitzen of this great republic,
although in the mauuer of a proper
celebration, parties may honestly dif
fer, yet lit auy event it ought to be a
day of calm reflect ion, and not a day
for boisterous amusements. My coin
cides to you aud me, who were active
partici|>ants in that great struggle
from 1861 to 1865, now calletLthe Civil
war or lire War of the Rebellion, and
wtio are now old and infirm, and
expecting every day to be called to
answer that role call from on High, it
touches the numberless chords of mem
ory, yet it is proper and tilting that
tim survivors of that great struggle,
oiran oocassTon like tills should he
called to the riage. Involuntarily our
thoughts go hack to those of our com
rades, who were takeu from us while
in active service, some by being in
stantly killed, some taken by serious
wound, some dying with blighting
diseases, and from criminal neglect,
and thousands and thousands of them
perishing in the hospital tents, in the
(lest camp, and in toe prison pen, and
we also lovingly, remember the sur
vivors of that great struggle, lasting
four long years, who have since then
gone to their eternal rest. Howquickly
our numbers are diminishing. The
years that Bring old age, infirmities
and death are decimating our ranks
even quicker than the enemies fire.
Time is our most relentless enemy,

private or a captain, he lias to meet
tiie common lot of all, for death is r,o
respeetor of person or rank. This
passing away is almost an every day
occurence, and the poet so fittingly
expresses it, when he says:

This day with its recollections,
brings forth aud revea s a wonderful
page of history, and to all who fippre
iieud the full significance of the ap
pointment of Memoral Day it is the
full bloomed, perfect blossom of a
people’s gratitude. To the children
who are amougst us, it ought to be a
school and instruction iu patriotism
and loyality. We must not fail to tell
them how that oue shot fired at our
fiag at Fort Sumpter iu the-year lMil
stirred like au electric shock, the
people of the northern stales, its
echoes reverberated from hill to dale
throughout the whole country and
how it aroused such a wonderful out
burst of patriotism. Y\e must tell the
risiug generation of those exciting
times, of the rolliug of drums, the
sound of bugles, and rustling of fiags,
of the prayer meetings turned into
war meetings, and of the school houses
turned into recruiting stations. We
must not forget to tell them how,
when the call to arms was issued, men
came from the pulpit and the rostrum,
the factory and the farm, the mine
and lumber camp, to take up their
country's cause, aud how under the
starry tl*g Ihe young aud the middle
ag-d," the slender pale fac and youth and
the bronzed aud weather l*-aieu men
marched side by side.
Tell them that before the war was
closed over two million meu had been
*alled iuio service, and tell them of
the anguish and anxiety of those left
at home watching aud waiting for
months and years which went so slow.
Tell them of camp anil march, oi siege
and l>atUe and of the prison pen, of
danger aud death, hope and despair,
of victory aud defeat.
Tell them of the day when finally thf
dark cloud parted ami we saw coming
from the sky beyond, the white winged
auge 1 of peace, how the £ e grew still
about us. and the cannon ceased to thun
der, and the musketry to rattle, how iu
the distan - gloom we heard the drum
and fife, and we saw coming lionx at
last, tattered ami U ’he reiunsftV of
our great army.
Tell them of those soldiers disbanding
quietly, becoming citizens again ami
going'home to their accustomed places
Bui do not forget to tell them, that over
three hundred thousand did not couie ,
l>ack to be mustered out at the end of hos- j
tilities and when asked by our young ]
sters why they did not come back, tell!
them they died in battle, on land and
on sea, from sickness and privations,
aud iu the prison pen.
Tell them of those remarkable scenes
when the confederates had to give up
the struggle. Tell them how the foe of
yesterday was intermingling iu the
rauksof the victor, and being treated to
subsistence to appease his hunger.
Tell them that at the close of hostili
ties, thousands, yea hundreds of thou
sands of soldiers of the North and of the
south returned to theirhomes and at once
became citizens and yeoman of the land
once more, no rumpus or excitement
about it, just as if it was a matter of
course. There is no land on the face of
the earth where such an event could
trie place without creating a great
serial disturbance, but such is and
always has been American manhood.
“Courageous in the hour of danger,
tenacious of his inherited rights, yet
magnanimous to the conquered foe.”
It is this trait of the American char
acter that brings it about, that with
each Memorial day there is lessening
of the stings ami sorrow of the pain of
war, a hiding of the scars, and the turn
ing of a feeling of bitterness into sym
pathy. No more do we speak with
uukimlness of those who sought to
divide the nation, who fought for
slavery, and whose activity and perse
verance cost us so dear. The separa
tion and danger and bitterness of the
conflict is past, and while we honor
those who preserved the nation, we do
not hate the others, who forty years
ago were our enemies, but have now as
a whole and with very few exceptions,
accepted the issue of the war in good
faith, and are now loyal to the stars and
stripes. YY’e respect them for their
bravery, remember that they are fellow
citizens. YY'e have forgiven them for
their errors and yet not forgotten the
valor of our own soldiers who defeated
their attempt to disrupt the Union.
The nation is bound together forever,
one and inseparably. There is no North
and no South, nor is there a West. or an
East. This is the United States, and when
1 say the United States is, I mean to
emphasize the perpetuation of the
Union by using the singular verb, and
we ali feel thankful that we are per
mitted to live in a country that has a
government “of the people, by the peo
ple and for the people.”
But the lessons of the day ought to he
an incentive to every American, young
and old, native born or adopted, to so
regulate his life, and so conduct himself,
individually and collectively, that the
world at large may be convinced that
we are a people desiring peace and
pursuing it, cherishing good will and
exercising it, respecting law and obey
ing it, loving God and doing his will,
and so in our day and generation work
ing out, so far as possible, and as we are
able to, the problem of our nation’s
high destiny, which is to be at the head
of civilization and an example for other
nations to follow.
At this monument we are assembled
today to pay tribute to the memory of
those of our comrades whose bodies
lie buried in southern soil or other
places unrecognized but not forgotten,
and from here, will proceed to the
cemeteries to pay a like tribute to the
memory of those whose bodies lie
buried among their friends and rela
tions. And now on behalf of Cutl< r
Post G. A. R. 1 ask these young peo
ple. to scatter memorial flowers upon
this monument, which represents the
graves of all those buried in unknown
places, and who died in the sacred
cause of our country.
Our floral tribute shall wither, let
the tender love for which it stands'en
dure until the touch of death shall still
the warm pulse beats of our hearts.

Mr. Roseuberry, the orator of the
day, spoke as follows :
Thirty-nine years have come and
gone since Generals Grant and Lee
at Appomatox formally ended the
greatest civil war known to the
history of the world. It was a
struggle that brought forth the best eu
deavors of Americans, both north and
south. It was a struggle, as each side
believed, prompted not by ambition of
any men or set of men. but by a deter
mination to stand by that which each
side thought was tight. part
of the nort h it was a struggle for human
liberty and human rights. It enlisted
the sympathy and arrested the attention
of the civilized world. It was not a
struggle for political supremacy,

When upon the stillness of that April
morning the roar of the first gun liiNul
upon Sumpter sounded throughout the
land, its echoes awoke to life and activ
ity the patriotism and devotion of
millions of free men.
No military overlord ordered these
men to assembly at government bar
tacks to enlist them in the cause of the
conqueror. They were not ordered by
anyone, but when the immortal Lincoln
requested the men of the north to en
roll themselves upon the side of human
liberty and right, most nobly did they
Every village and hamlet was in

hesitated not to sever the ties that
bound them to home and'kmdred. No
less brave than the fathers and brothers
were the mothers and wives of these
same men, who hade their departing
ones God speed as tfiey marched away
to the field of battle. Forget;ing every
thing but the duty they owed to their
country, a million free men took up
and fought out the cause of human
And most worthily did these men
bear themselves in that great conflict,
not only on the field of battle, but on
the march and in the camp they bore
without complaint the privations and
hardships of war. Today under the
southern sun sleeps quietly beneath the
flowers, side by side, the hero of the
prison pen and the hero of the battle
field. Many lie in unknown graves,
their names forgotten, but the cause
for which they lived and died can never
die, aud they will live in the memories
of our people as long as Anglo Saxon

As the homeward bound trains
poured them by the thousands into the
north they took their places in the
great industrial army of the country-,
some with their blankets and guns went
into the forests of Michigan, Wisconsin
and Minnesota, there to found bomm

pushed their way out onto the great
prairies of the west to found new states
and the American soldier proved in
that hour that he was a man and a
citizen first and a soldier afterward.
The come and went and the sol
dier grew more and more proud
of his achievements. He began to
feel that there was but one genera
tion of Americans that could be
made into real soldiers and that that
was the one to which he belonged. He
said to himself and his friends, What
would the young men of today do if
they were asked to do what I did? and

In 1898, when a treacherous foe blew
up the battleship Maine in the harbor
of Havana and the lives of 264 American
seamen were sacrificed, that chance
came. The world paused and looked
to see what a younger generation of
American men would do and the world
soon found out. Neither on sea or land
did they once fail or falter, and to you
veterans of the Spanish war 1 can only
say. there are no higher words of praise,
that you did your duty as well as
the boys of ’til did theirs. You
fought not only for your country,
but for the oppressed and downtrodden
people of Cuba to whom you were
bouud by no ties of blood or com
mon interest. The world soon fouud that
the libre of American manhood was
sound and ever since Santiago and San
Juan the civilized world has lost no
opportunity to show its respect for the
American seaman and soldier.
Let us glory today in American man
hood and citizenship, at the fireside and
in the shop as well as upon the field of
But what lesson does this day hold
for us of a younger generation, who
cannot iu the nature of things serve our
country iu this heroic way? Is there
nothing for us to do ? Must we sit
idling until the war tocsin sounds
again that we may enlist ourselves in
the service of our country ? God forbid.
There lies about us as great opportun
ities to serve our country as at any time
iu its history. The struggle for human
lights will never be ended until the
dawn of the millenium day. This day
and this hour demand coin age and un
selfish devotion to our country as much

midst of the eternal clamor for office,
place and power we should listen to'the
voice of patriotism as it points its way
to better and higher things.
If for the sake of their country and
for our sake our fathers and brothers
were willing to stand up and be shot at,
we ought at least be willing to stand up
and be couuted on theside of good gov
ernment. The man who has no opinion
as to his civic duty, or having one, is
afraid to express it for fear he may lose
a vote or lose the sale of a pound of tea
is a poltroon and a coward. He is the

be told what ourduty as citizens is. We
know what it is. Every citizen knows
that. All that lie needs to do is to lis

of two wars risked their lives, the cause
of human rights.
Let us sacrifice something of our time
