The annual banquet and meeting o! the Wausau Advancement association was held Friday evening in tiie base ment, of the old St. James' church, on Second street. The tables were so arranged that tiie large number in attendance could be seated at once and w’ere served with a very good and substantial supper, at the conclusion of which tiie cigars were oassed, and when tiie light blue smoke began to dim tiie room, tiie business of the evening was commenced. President M. C. Ewing in a brief report, called attention in a general way, to what has been accomplished and criticize* the past legislature for placing tht w ater power bill on tiie statute books a result of which has been to make all proposed waterpower developmenl dormant. At the conclusion of Mr. Ewing’s remarks he called on A. C. Schmidt, manager of the association, for his report. Mr. Schmidt mentioned that while he had beer, with the associa tion as manager for only eight months, yet, during that time, several smal factories had been located here and more were inslgl..; a traffic depart ment had been started on an active line of work; an employment bureau organized; the good roads movement gotten under way and an active inter est taken in all movements to get the city and county closer together foi the mutual advantage of both. He referred to tiie fact that timber pro ducts; paper and its products; granite surplus of female labor arid cheap electrical power are our natural re sources and the permanent develop ment of this community is closely de pendent. on these and successful in dustries for Wausau will be such that utilize these natural resources. Mr. Schmidt also stated that the associa tion is attempting to make Wausau a better place to live in by assisting in any movement w hich tends to elevate or make its citizens more contented and liappy, as. for instance, the asso ciated charities; tiie lyceutn course; the Chautauqua and any similar movements. The moral tone created thus is being used as an argument in favor of locating the proposed new normal school at Wausau.

Curtis, as a member of the traffic department, in brief, endorsed Mr. Solie’s reDort and further ex plained tiie workings of the depart ment and showed liow it saved the shippers large sums of money. Neal Brown was called on for :i t few remarks and lived up to his repu-’ tation of being able to create interest. He dwelt upon the necessity of hand ling a city's affairs in a business like manner and favored a plan of taking tiie city out of politics and have its affairs administered by competent men, employed on account of their ability. This statement, of course started something so that W. It. Cheilis took the opportunity of launch ing his old love of commission form of government but the subject was cut short when Gr D. Jones stated that lie always enjoyed an excursion with Neal Brown for the reason he never knew what it would be, where it would lead to or when lie would get to it. He stated that while all subjects of interest to tiie citizen ought to he discussed at these meet ings, yet care must he taken to keep the association out of politics, as its object is of a business and civic nature rather than political. B. F. Wilson called the attention of those present to tiie value of hav ing a cow r testing association. He stated that tiie dairy business forms ttie backbone of agriculture; assists in tiie development of the county and is of inestimable value to all mercan tile interests of the city. His opin ion was endorsed by Mr. Jones and Prof. Kadonsky. The result of the discussion will probably be that an agricultural board will be for led. in order to establish a cow testing associ ation auu to engage an expert who will devote his whole time to develop ing tiie dairy industry in the county. Carl Krueger spoke on the big asset that this community lias in its boys and girls and the advisability of keep ing track of them and developing them into skilled laborers. S.. B. Tobey commented on this and stated that this is being done at pres ent in a limited way by the industrial training schools that are now being conducted in the old city hall build ing and the high school. Judge F. PI. Bump suggested that c. committee on municipal affairs be ap pointed and Senator Albers brought the meeting to a close by moving a rising vote to the Judies for the de lightful supper served. The following were elected as direc tors for the new year: G. D. Jones, M. C. Ewing, C. E. Turner. O. C. Lemke, W. F. Nettling, Otto Mueller, W. C. Landon, W. R. Cheilis and Henry Seim. Tiie meeting was very w ell attended and a complete success.
