DEAL CLOSED SATURDAY
The 8. Heinemann Lumber Company
Coming to Wausau. Now Have Lease
of the Alexander Stewart Lumber
Cos. s Mill.
The following news will be of great
interest to the people of Wausau and
vicinity. While much has been said
during the past few weeks in refer
ence to the matter, no final agree
ment had been, entered into. The B.
Heinemann Lumber Cos. of Antigo
closed the deal Saturday, March 2nd,
Tor the Alexander Stewart Lumber
company’s saw mill in this city, and
have also closed a deal with the
Wausau Street Railroad company for
the lease of the land near the mil; for
piling ground.
This will mean a big thing for
Wausau, as the B. Heinemann Lum
ber Cos. will run the mill night and
day and have from fifteen to twenty
years' cut, and will employ about two
hundred men. The Antigo people
have been offering the company big
inducements to locate at Antigo. and
it was feared for some time that
the company could not be induced to
come to Wausau. A great deal of
credit is due the Wausau Street Rail
road Cos., Alexander Stewart Lumber
company and G. D. Jones in closing
the deal, as they have made very
liberal terms in order to get tire
Heinemann Lumber Cos. to cut its
bunch of Limber here, where every
body will be benefited. This is the
kind of business men we want. Mr.
Heinemann, and the gentlemen in
terested, did not ask the city for a
bonus or for a site, hut the city would
have been glad to assist if it had
been called upon. There is a move
ment on foot to organize an advance
ment association, and have a paid
secretary to go after other factories,
and we understand, from reliable in
formation, that there are several
other factories which are contemplat
ing coming to Wausau, and with an
organization formed with a paid sec
retary we ought to be able to nail
some of them.
BUSINESS CHANGES.
A re-arrangement of business inter
ests is being made this week in the
store building in the Pilot block.
The James Music Cos. is discontinu
ing business, although it will retain
its corporation for some time to come
in order to make final settlements of
its accounts.' E. M. James, who lias
been at the head of the company
since its organization, will maintain
an office in the store and will fit up a
parlor for the handling of the Victor
line of talking machines and records
and will also become the district
agent of the Aetna Life Insurance
company.
F. B. Laabs will continue the piano
business occupying a part of the front
of the store. lie will be general agent
of the I vers & Pond Piano Cos , Kim
ball Piano Cos. and the Baldw in Piano
Cos. lie lias been in this husiness for
a good many years and all are glad
that these excellent pianos will con
tinue to be sold by Mr. Laabs.
Geo. 11. Wilke will open anew
jewelry store and repair shop on the
other side of the store. Mr. Wilke
has had long experience in the jewelry
business and is a thorough workman.
Ilis line of jewelry will arrive in a
short time.
We trust that every one of the
young men will be as busy as bees
and from our long acquaintance with
them we can heartily recommend
every one of them for integrity and
fair dealing.
