Rail read Commission Het.ru Testimony on lagging Rates on Association Complaint. Lumber mill men in the small northern Wisconsin cities may be compelled to move their plants nearer to the woods if the present rates for hauling logs is continued, according to testimony given be.’ore the rail road commission. The present rate, ir effect since Feb. 33, 1913, is an increase of from 70 to 100 per cent over the old rate, it was shown. For this reason the only course open for the lumber deal ers if the rates are not reduced is to move their plants nearer the woods, a rnoce that would ruin some of the small cities that have grown up around the mills. r i # he hearing by the commission was upon the complaint of the Northern Hemlock and Hardwood Lumber Manufacturers’ association. WATER POWER HEARING. The tirst hearing upon the water power bill was held in Madison last Friday. G. D. Jones of this city was present. It was the concensus of opinion that tlie water powers in Wisconsin will not be developed or improved if the pending conservation committee bill become a law for the reason that investors will not put their money into such a hazardous undei taking. Prof. Jolin it. Cannons of the commission who helped draft the bill opened the discussion with an explanation of its provisions. He was questioned by many of the water powei men present. Prof. Daniel W. Mead of the University of Wisconsin, an expert hydraulic engineer ex plained the construction of dams and reservoirs and the problems to be overcome and the expense per horse power developed. it was his opinion thai capitalists would not care to in vest their money if the conservation committee bill was passed because it was too uncertain. Attorney Bundy said the scheme proposed by the bill was nothing less t.har contiscation and acquisition of ownership, under condemnation proceed ngs, was the proper way for the stateto take this property from private persons. Nine ty pe • cent of the undeveloped water power of the state, Mr. Bundy said, was north of the line running from Manitowoc to La Crosse. Most of it was ii unsettled territory and would not be developed until the country became reasonably well populated. But under the proposed committee bill it would, lie said, be impossible to And any one who would care to finance the development of a water power in this state. The. hearing on the bills w ill be re resuu ed this Tuesday afternoon and may run through Wednesday and Thursday. A CLOSE CALL.

When they started it was calm and serene as one could wish, but when quite a distance from shore a heavy wind sprung up and in attempting to turn around the canoe-upset. People on shore heard the tirst cry for help and a boat set out to render aid. George succeeded in holding on to the canoe until rescued, but he had taken in so much water and it was fbe cold that it required considerable work to revive him. His companion started out to swim ashore but was picked up just in time to be saved from a watery grave. It was a very close call for both, and the many friends of Mr. Ruder are rejoicing over his escape. CLEAN UP. \ Mayor John Ringle has desq .ted Friday, May 2d, as clean up and tire protection day.

It is the intention of the tire department, so far as possible to inspect the premises about our city and ty point out what shall be done to prevent possible tires. Especially will this be done in the conjested parts of our city and where a tire would be the most disastrous. This is an ex celler t move on the part of our mayor and every citizen should eo-operate with him in seeing that debris of whatever nature, is removed to the dumj heap. This will not only beautify our city but may prevent a conflagration, which would cause vast damage. Prepare for May 2 and let us have a cleaning up that will astonish the natives. NOTICE.

GENERAL SECRE TARY’S REPORT. Young Men's Christian Association Wausau, Wig., April 17, 1913. To the Board of Directors : At the close of eight months of work and at a period which marks practically the close of our greatest indoor activities, it is perhaps well for us to review in a broad way the work which has been accomplished, at least as far as the tangible results are concerned. We have at present a membership composed as follows: business Men’s club, 53; Seniors, 263; Limited, 55: Sustaining 13. Total number of men 354; Intermediates, 82; Juniors, 128; Working Boys, 35; total number of boys 245, Grand total 029. There are a number to be added to this when our membership committee rounds up some who have been slow in re newing. The interest in the physical work during the wintei has lieen good. In all the gymnasium classes the attend ance and interest have kept up well. From the physical director's report we iind that the a tendance by classes lias been as follows: Business Men, 1490; Seniors, 1 785; Intermediates, 1578; Juniors A, 1232- Junior B, 1110, Working Boys 417; To’a! attendance all classes 7624. ('lass enrollment, Business Men, 30; Seniors, 80; intermediates, 42; Junior A, 42: Junior B, 48; Working Boys 20. Wrestling lias held up well in inter est, a total of 215 having participated. Basket Ball in classes was as fol lows: Class Leagues Teams Enrolled Seniors 3 15 90 J unior A 1 0 .‘55 Junior B 2 12 Intermediates 2 12 72 8 45 209 Bowling leagues: Class No. Teams No. Games ' x Enrolled Senior 12 uo t>o Intermediates 4 18 25 The new hand ball court installed last fall has proved very popular and is being used by an increasing mim. her. The Association skating link was of course well patronized w hile the skating lasted. 41 boys have been taught to swim so far tins year. The night school work was dropped tliis year because of its introduction on a far more comprehensive scale by our public schools and a duplication of work was not deemed advisable. Our reading room lias been constantly our best patronized feature and has well repaid all that lias been invested in it for magazines. A debating club, “The Yaly Forum”, was organized in the fall among the younger business and professional men with a member ship of thirty. It has held weekly meetings for the discussion of current topics and has been of the very high est value to tliose who have taken part. Two clubs for the study of birds have been organized this spring, one for adults and one for boys. The scope of the work of these groups will be broadened to take in oilier nature studies later on. as flowers and trees. Closely allied to the educational and yet coming strictly under the religious work have been the two groups, one of men and another of ladies, meeting once a week during the winter to study the nature and training of the Adolescent Boy, from the standpoint of the parent and the Sunday school teacher. The attend ance ajid interest in these classes was such as to warrant us in the belief that they were well worth while and worth repeating another year. There lias been an exceedingly hearty and helpful co-operation be tween the churches and the Associa tion and plans are under way at present whereby this co-operation will be strengthened into something very delinite in making for greater ettieience in our Sunday school work with boys and girls. In the religious work among Junior boys we have taken up the study of “Old Testament Characters” in two classes each meeting once a week. There has been an average Attend ance in the two classes of 31 and a total for the year of 369. 29 boys took the Bible examination at the the course. The total attendance at the monthly Bible class suppers for these groups was 81. The High school boys have met each Tuesday night for supper and then in three groups have studied the "Life Problems oi High School Boys:” tlie total attend ance having lieen 462. The purpose has been in this work to get these boys to think matters of vital import ance in the building of their own characters thru to their logical con clusion, never, however, forcing a decision upon them. The State Boys’ Work Conference at Oshkosh wa.> attended by 21 delegates from Wausau and proved an exceed ingly helpful gathering in the inspir ation and suggestion given the boys. The Sunday Fireside meetings have been well attended and very helpful. The policy has been to conduct a short informal meeting, with plenty of singing, an orchestra, special music and a short spicy talk of not mure than 20 minutes. The average at tendance has been 35 men and 3o boys. A total of 629 men, 3-<0 older boys and 155 younger beys. Among the boys an organization known as the High Seh.ool Boys' Club has been very active in promoting the work among the boys of the Association and have had much to do with making tlie Boys' Department a success' 52 boys have lieen enrolled in active service thru their commit tees. They have promoted the basket ball tournament among the grade schools: the sale of Christmas calen dars: the New Year's Calendar exhibit: the Carroil College Quartet, which they had in our city lor three days: OCCURRENCES OF LONG AGO.
