COUNTY COUNCIL OF DEFENSE Organized on Thursday and Necessary Work Now Under Way- Mayor H. E. Marquardt, who early last week appointed the County Council of Defense, at the sug gestion of the University of Wisconsin Extension Division, called a meeting of the council for organization on Thursday morning, May 3d, at 11 o’clock at the city hall. All of the members were present, viz., H. E. Marquardt. mayor; C. C. Yawkey, for the. manufacturing inter ests; Ed. Gensman, for the farmers; Mrs. A. H. Reid, for the Women’s clubs; Dr. Joseph Smith, for medical profession; H. G. Flieth, for the bank ers; C. B. Bird, for the bar associa tion; S. Winkleman, for the mer chants; E. B. Thayer for the press; A. V. Gearhart, for the city council and F. F. Chesak, for the county board. Mr. Marquardt stated the objects of the council and read articles adopt ed by the Portage county council and presented each member with a copy of the same. (' B. Bird was elected temporary chairman and E. B. Thayer temporary secretary. Mr. Bird went into details as to the purposes of the organization. That it was to co-operate with the State Council of Defense, gather statistics, facts and other information necessary; supervise and direct investigation in the county and make recommenda tions to the governor as may be deemed advisable; prevent as far as possible a scarcity of food and fuel. Advise the governor in case of such scaracity, and to prevent- excessive profit. A. V. Gearhart and Mayor Marquardt told what the city was doing to secure potatoes for seed, and other seed, and that many lots were being plowed and given to the people. Up to date, 80 lots have been taken and plowed up and the city now has three teams at work plowing. Nearly all the vacant land in the city will soon be growing crops. W. K. Mitchell, Dist, representative of the University of Wisconsin Exten sion Division, gave an interesting ac count of the doings of county councils in other counties in Wisconsin. He has attended nine of such meetings and all were doing excellent work; he was able to make suggestions which were valuable. The council adjourned at 1 p. m. to meet again at 7:30 o’clock, when all were present but F. F. Chesak of Athens. A. G. Burg, superintendent of the Marathon County School of Agriculture, and J. E. Giessel, County Supt. of Schools were present, who ex plained what had been done to in crease crop production this spring in the county. Mr. Berg has been very active in securing seeds of all kinds for our farmers and had not been able to get anywhere near enough potatoes to supply the demand, but with what he had promised and with what Mayor Marquardt and others expected to get in, it was thought the supply would be very close to the demand. Mr. Giessel said that indications throughout the county pointed to an increase of acre age planted. A committee of three consisting* of A. V’. Gearhart, A. H. Burg and H. G. Flieth was appointed to draft a circular to be sent to the farmers of the county on Saturday and to be published in the various papers in the county, giv ing information as to where land can be had free, where labor can be se cured and where to apply for seeds, especially potatoes. It was ascertained that the railroad companies would let responsible per sons have cleared land along their right of ways, free, and it was thought many would take advantage of this. The school board of each district in the county, was appointed to act as a local council of defense of its district and to co-operate with the county council and to call a meeting at the district school house for the discussion of the important questions submitted to the councils throughout the country at this time. The council will hold another meet ing in the court room at the court house at 7:30 o’clock next Friday evening and will meei weekly after that. 1. 0. 0. F.

In one of the fastest trips recorded on the Wisconsin river the season's log drive of the John Week Lumber jCo., has reached this city and anxi ! ety over car shortages is a thing of |tlie past. The drive started at the Hog creek banking grounds ten days ago and was brought down under ideal conditions. Ole Larson with a smaller crew than usual, about 30 men, han dled the drive which is larger than the average for late years. About 4,000,- 000 feet are included, practically all hemlock. The distance down the Big Eau Pleine river to Knowlton and thence by the Wisconsin to this city, is 28 miles. The water has been at the right stage and all the crew had to do has been to keep the banks clear. The drive v ill be reared in hear early next week, it is expected, unless some obstinate log pockets require a longer time for breaking. The time made by this drive is very close to the record if not a record breaker, L. R. Anderson states.—Ste vens Point Journal. GIDEONS’ ANNUAL MEETING The Wisconsin Gideons, a Christian organization of traveling men, rep resenting all kinds of business, held !their annual convention in Wausau Saturday and Sunday. It was a splen did gathering of a splendid type of manhood. There were about fifty or sixty representatives present. On Sat urday morning a preliminary meeting ! was held at the M. C. A., and in the ■ afternoon the business of the annual j meeting was commenced, receiving the ! reports of the officers, election of of j ticers, etc. This meeting was followed jby a dinner in Cyrus Y’awkey hall (served by the ladies of the First Uni , versalist church. An after-dinner program was a feature of the occasion, which was enjoyed by all present. P. M. Brink of LaCrosse, presided as toast master. The dinner was opened to outsiders and many took occasion to be present. The principal public meeting of the event was held in the First Univer salist church on Saturday evening, at which Rev. D. .J. Williams, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, and Mayor H. E. Marquardt made address es of welcome and the response was made by S. E. Hill of Beloit. A song service was held at the Baptist church on Sunday morning at nine o’clock. At 9:15 J. C. Bennett of Chicago, spoke to the Men’s club of the Pres byterian church, and to the M. E.

Brink, of La Crosse, and R. L. Adams of Madison. Sunday evening there was a union service at the First M. E. church, at which the convention address was made by G. A. Briggs of Baraboo. Altogether, the convention was a great success. TRUCK COMPANY WILL LOCATE ELSEWHERE The Lamson Truck and Tractor com pany has decided not to come to Wau sau. The trouble seems to be that the company w'anted the extra capital ,to be paid in by Wausau people besides getting a building and site, and when this was done, still the company would have entire control. While the Pilot does not know* the ins and outs of the deal, yet it is apparent that it is a case of wanting too much; that which did not appeal to our people. It is too bad to lose such a large con cern and one which they say would have paid large dividends, but, it seems our people must have things as they want them otherwise interest lags. . It) Mt 0(1 If f®lint - WAUSAU SULPHATE AND FIBRE COMPANY The Wausau Sulphate and Fibre company is doing things at Mosinee without making any great “holler” about it. The company is erecting a large addition to the paper mill at a cost of $400,000. This will add great ly to the capacity of the mill. The company is also building a large hotel on the east bank of the Wisconsin river, where the old Fall City hotel used to stand. In 1852 this site was selected for a hotel by Wm. G. Blair, who was wounded in the civil war and died in Chattanooga, Tenn., in 1861. Mrs. Cornelia Blair operated the hotel until she passed away in 1881. The hotel was one of the most popular on the river before the advent of the rail roads. The old hotel was destroyed a year or two ago and that another hotel will take its place soon, speaks well of the judgment of those who selected the spot in 1852. It is at the head of Little Bulls falls and has a fine view* of the river and surrounding country. The new* hotel is now* nearly completed. GO FISHING The law* which prevented fishing until later in the season, has been changed so that people of Wisconsin can supply their tables with fish. The law is as follows: A bill relating to the open season for fishing. Whereas, To alleviate conditions due to the scarcity of and high prices for food stuffs, it is deemed expedient and advisable that the right to take of the abundant supply of fish held by the state of Wisconsin in trust for the people be granted to the people earlier than now prescribed by law; therefore The people of the state of Wiscon sin, represented in senate and assem bfy, do enact as follows: Section 1. In addition to the open season now provided by law*, any per son, who is a resident of this state may catch fish, excepting large and small mouth black bass, from any of the w'aters of this state by means of hook and line from May 1, 1917, to May 29, 1917, both inclusive, subject to the following restrictions: (1) The quantity of fish permitted to be so taken under the provisions of this act shall not exceed in any one day ten pound round, except that two fish of any weight may be so taken; (2) No fish taken under the provi sions of this act shall be shipped, sold, or caused to be shipped, sold or bartered.

ILLUSTRATED LECTURE One of the best entertainments given in Wausau for a long time was the illustrated lecture on the the Yel lowstone National Park, North Pacific Coast and Alaska, by Charles Norton Hunt, at the Masonic Temple on Tues day evening. He was also accom panied by H. V. Wilmot, district pas senger agent of the Northern Pacific R. R. The entertainment w*as given under the auspices of Forest Lodge, No. 130, F. and A. M., and the large lodge room was filled to its capacity. The moving pictures of the park and the stereopticon view-s were the best that had ever been shown of the park and were greatly appreciated. The slides w*ere from actual photo graphs and beautifully colored by ar tists who specialize in Yellowstone National park and Alaskan photogra phy. The moving picture films covered the park in both summer and w*inter and show* wild animal life in a most in teresting manner. Mr. Hunt is a very entertaining lec tures and knows as much about his subjects as any man in America. COUNTY SANATORIUM The county sanatorium for the pre vention of tuberculosis had many visi tors on Sunday afternoon between the hours of three and five o’clock, the hours when all are privileged to visit the sanatorium each day in the week. Mrs. Stephenson, the head nurse in charge, took much delight in showing the visitors through the beautiful building. There are now twelve patients in the sanatorium and more are expected soon. With the exception of some of the furniture, everything is now com plete. The grounds have been laid out and grass planted, and all that is need ed is w arm weather and rain- to make a transformation that will be very pleasing. The walk to the depot in front of the sanatorium, and the broad, artistic concrete steps which form a part of it, is complete, as well as the walk south to Rib river. In about six weeks, w*hen the grass is up and the fiow*ers are in bloom, the sanatori um surroundings will be very hand some, and w*orth going out to see. MEETING AT MT. SANAI TEMPLE A meeting of the Jewish faith of this city was held at Mt. Sanai tem ple Friday evening, for the purpose of electing three delegates to attend a convention at Madison next Sunday to nominate candidates for the three congressmen to be elected by the Jew ish people of this state to represent them at the international congress to be held at Washington, D.

Louis j Wies of Milwaukee, was present and | addressed the meeting on the subject j of the object in question and the elec tion. THE RIGHT SPIRIT ; A Milwaukee concern desired to un- Iload its goods in Wausau and made arrangements to advertise through the Majestic theatre motion pictures. W. 0. Troyer. manager, as soon as he I learned that it was not a home concern and that it was a blow at home mer chants, cut the pictures out, which | was a very commendable thing to do. A little show of appreciation goes a | long ways toward keeping up this ef fective work for our home institutions. ONE OF THE FINEST Sunday was one of the most beauti ful days of spring. The day was cloudless and fairly warm, but a breeze from the north and northeast made it far from a harbinger of summer. Autos were out carrying people in every direction, many seeking arbutus patches. UkAXBEB OF COMMERCE The regular meeting of the Bureau of Information of the Chamber of Com merce will be held in the city hall this evening, a full attendance is desired. WAIJSAIJ, WIS. ( TIIESpAY, MAY 3 : 1917. CITY COUNCIL The common council of the city of Wausau met in regular monthly ses sion on Tuesday evening. A manufacturing institution known as the Gaylord Paper Products com pany had been negotiating with the Chamber of Commerce with reference to bringing its plant to Wausau. The company asked of the Chamber of Commerce a site upon which to build its factory and the proposition was laid before the city council. The plant is at present making butter enclosures and can get the material here from the Marathon Paper Mills Cos., and it desires to be where it can get mater ial at little cost of transportation. The following resolutions concern ing the new* plant were passed: “Whereas, the common council of the city of Wausau is anxious to fur thi r the development of the city of Wausau by inducing the location of other industries in the city of Wau sau. Now, therefore, be it “Resolved, That the mayor and city clerk be empowered to enter into a contract with the new* company, here after to be organized, and to be known as ‘The Gaylord Paper Products Com pany, for the purpose of erecting and operating a plant for the manufacture of paper products by which the city will sell to said company, a parcel of land known and described as Block three (3) and four (4) of Dunbar & Brow’n’s South addition to the city of Wausau, Wisconsin, said land to be purchased by the city at a considera tion of the sum of four thousand dol lars, which said land is to be con veyed to the said company for the sum of one dollar, conditioned how ever, that the title of said land is not to pass until the expiration of a period of four years after the completion of said plant to be erected during the summer of 1917. The said company is to erect a manufacturing plant, sixty by two hundred feet, and to pro vide a capital of at least fifty thousand dollars. Said company is to employ an average of fifty-five hands per day for four years after the completion of said plant. “It is further provided that said site shall be used for industrial pur poses for ten years. “It is further provided that the said company shall at any time "have the right and option to purchase the said land from the city of Wausau for the said sum of four thousand dollars, upon which payment being made to the city of Wausau, the title of said land shall be complete and without restrictions in said company. "It is further resolved that the mayor and the clerk of the city of Wausau be authorized to enter into a contract w*ith the owners of the land, hereinbefore described, for the purchase thereof by the city for the sum of four thousand dollars, the same to be paid for at the rate of one thousanld dollars per year; and re solved further “That for the purpose of providing the funds for the purchase of the said lands, there is hereby appropriated, the sum of one thousand dollars to be paid from the industrial fund of the city of Dausau for the year of 1917, the further sum of one thousand dolars to be levied against the taxable prop erty of the city of Wausau for the year 1918, the further sum of one thousand dollars to be levied against the taxable property of the city of Wausau for the year 1919, and the further sum of one thousand dollars to be levied against the taxable prop erty of the city of Wausau for the year 1920; said levy being made un der the provisions of chapter 276 of the laws of 1915, authorizing an ex penditure of two thousand dollars per annum for industrial purposes and which Was adopted by the electors of the city of Wausau.” The health committee presented a proposed ordinance, which relates to the perfect sanitary condition of every place where goods are for sale; such as packing, canning, bottling, or w*here goods are kept, handled, served or dis tributed. The ordinance is a splendid one to conserve the health of thte city. It takes in our stores, bakeries and gives the department the power to look after adulterated food, dairy pro ducts, etc. The ordinance was referred to the judiciary committee. The city attorney was instructed to look into the matter of the partial purchase of a truck for the fire depart ment of the Lamson Truck and Trac tion company. An invitation was accepted from Rev. Father Hauck, to attend the dedi catory services of the parochial school of St. Mary’s congregation on Sunday, May 6th. The matter of the amendment of the franchise with the Wisconsin Val ley Electric company was taken up and a committee consisting *>f Alder men Morisette, Damon, Leak, and Kust. B. C. Gow*en, city engineer and F. P. Regner, city attorney, were ap pointed to confer with the Electric company. There is no reason why the franchise should not be amended, but the city feels that it should have some right in directing the extensions. The alderman from the seventh ward, Ed. Hoenish, w*ho had moved from the city resigned and William Klukow was elected to succeed him. One hundred dollars was appropri ated to the G. A. R. Post to defray ex penses on Memorial day. An ordinance proposing to license junk dealers and peddlers w*as re ferred. The petition asking for the condem nation of property on Prospect avenue south, opening the street to the ceme tery was granted. The recreation committee was au thorized to ** nploy such help as was necessary to the bathing beach during the coming season. The council adopted a resolution to allow residents of the city to keep pigs, so long as they adhered to the rules of the health department. Bills were passed and reports read from the different departments. GIVEN PROMOTIONS " Promotions in the ranks of Cos. G, W. N. G. have been made. Capt. E. I.

EYE IS REMOVED Marshfield Herald, April 28th: B. F. McMillan, president of the First National bank, and one of the pioneer lumbermen of this section, is in a Milwaukee hospital recovering from a recent operation for the removing of his left eye, the operation having been performed last Saturday by Dr. Snyder of that city. His eye became affected at the time of the forest fires that swept over this section fifteen or eighteen years ago, at which time Mr. McMillan, was nearly blinded by smoke. Ever since he has been a great sufferer, until finally, to save the sight of the right eye, an opera tion was deemed advisable. Mrs. Mc- Millan is with him.

Last Thursday several of our busi ness men went out into the country on a hunting expedition; among them were Louis Schlecht and Paul Riebe. These gentlemen were “on the track’’ of a partridge, passing through thick ets and climbing over fallen trees. Mr. Schlecht, while jumping from one log to another, was thrown to the ground by the bark slipping off, and in falling, a twig caught the trigger of his gun causing a discharge of one of the barrels. The load contained fine shot for small game, which went straight for the smallest part of Paul Riebe’s body, his foot, demolishing his boot and a couple of shot entering the foot, making an ugly and painful wound. Mr. Riebe was instantly brought to his home and Dr. Fleischer called, who pronounced the wound not of a serious nature. Paul’s friends rejoice that he escaped so luckily. ARBOR AND BIRD DAY ' Last Friday was Arbor and Bird day in our state, in Wausau not much in terest was taken, excepting, perhaps, in our schools. The agitation of planting trees should not be allowed to lag. Ten years ago or more, our cemetery was a barren w*aste. Thou sands of small trees wer planted, close together; only about five per cent died and now* the grounds are a perfect beauty spot, made so by the el egant long lived trees. It was worth the while to plant trees. If at every arbor day, thousands of trees were planted in barren places, about the city, what a beauty spot Wausau would be in ten years and from that time forever afterwards. It is worth the while to observe Ar bor day. And the birds! We want them with us. We want beautiful bird houses put up in every yard, and most of all, the young should be taught not to mo lest the birds. Arbor and Bird day, when rightly observed, are very* important to the happiness of every one of us. PROMOTE GARDENING Miss Emma Conley has spent two dayr, in Wausau. She came by* appoint ment of Gov. Philipp to work up added interest in gardening. Miss Conley was formerly ore of the faculty of the Marathon County School of Agricul ture and Domestic Economy, and was a very able teacher in the latter de partment. She started at the Y. M. C. A. on Monday morning at 8 o'clock, j Tuesday* was a busy day. She spoke ! at the Wausau Business college, Mara ; tlion County Training ard Agricultural (Schools; at the High school and Wau sau Free Public library and Y. M. [C. A. This evening she will address the Campfire girls at the office of the - University of Wisconsin Division. JANE ABERCROMBIE Jane Abercrombie, formerly of Wau sau, sang 1n Mason City, lowa, April IS and 19, taking part in the rendition of “The Seven Last Works of Christ,” Ahich was presented by the Phil harmonic society of that city. The Mason City Times said of Jane Aber crombie, “Miss Abercrombie sang the soprano in the introduction and displayed not only a voice of beautiful quality, but added charm to her sing ing by her delightful personality.” While in Mason City, she was a guest of Mr. and Mrs. R. K. Janes, formerly ,of Wausau. She sang in Davenport ( and Rock Island, before returning to her home in Chicago. COLD AND FROSTY The weather history of the past j week has been sunshiny but cold, so ! that there has been a heavy frost every [night. So there is nothing growing. ! Gardens and produce, generally, are j back a couple of weeks. There is this [about it: When garden vegetables and produce, generally, commence to grow, we will be in the “no frost” time of summer. The same can be said of fruits and berries: There will be no fruit or berry blossoms until about June Ist or later from present indications. Our farmers seem to think that the oat crop this year will be a failure, because of the lateness of the season. Seed which has been planted is- just laying in the ground and rotting. DYN VMITING FISH It is quite generally reported that parties from the village and immedi ate vicinity have been dynamiting fish in the lower river. The evidence seems to be well founded, and arrests will no doubt follow. Dynamiting fish is the worst abuse and most destructive practice that can be followed. It of fers no element of sport and only the greedy, insatiable fish hog will fol low it. The damage to small fish is the greatest evil, as frequently hundreds of fish are killed that are never seen and are too small for food purposes.— Mosinee Times. —■ WEATHER REPORT FOR APRIL ’ i April was a cold month and only twice has it averaged up colder in twenty-two years. The precipitation •was 2.86 which was a little above normal. Prevailing wind, northwest. Number of days clear, nine, partly cloudly 11. There was fog on the 19 and bail on the 20th. Thunder storms on the 18, 19 and 20th. ADDITIONAL LAND PLANTED Our county superintendent says that he observes as he travels over the county, that there is considerable ad . ditional ground being planted. It is not land that has been cleared, but it seems that every piece of land that can be utilized is being planted. WEEKLY WEATHER FORECAST For the week beginning Sunday, May 6, 1917: The weather will be i cool, and with the exception of rain ; Tuesday or Wednesday, it will be generally fair.
