Pursuant to the call nearly thfee
hundred of our citizens assembled at
Turner Hall last Friday evening for
the purpose of reorganizing the Jnde
school district of New Ulm.
'he meeting was called to order by
Chas. Wagner who stated that the only
business that qould properly come be
fore the meeting would be the question
pf reorganizing the IndependentSchool
District of New Ulm so as to comply
with the full letter of the law, and
that the building of anew school house
had nothing do wfth this meeting.
Nearly an hour was consumed in
choosing a president of the meeting.
Chas. Wagner and F. Beinhorn were
nominated for the position, and upon a
viva voce vote being taken the tellers
announped 88 for Mr, Beinhorn and 92
for Mr. Wagner. Upon the announce
ment of the result Carl Rolloff and J.
B. Wiedemann very ungentlemanly
questioned the yaracjty of Capt. Nix,
one of the tellers, and for a few min
utes it looked stormy. Finally a mo
tion was made that a vote for president
be taken by bajlot. The motion pre
vailed, and the vote resulted in the
choice of Chas, Wagner by \\1 to 99
for Fr. Beinhorn. B, P. Webber was
then nominated by acclamation for
vice president and H. B. Qonstans for
After the meeting was duly organized
the president stated that the next busi
ness in order would be balloting for or
against the organizafcom of the district.
A motion was made that the polls be
open an hour and a halt for the recep
tion of ballots, which motion pie
vaijed, The result of the ballot *was
145 for reqiganrzing the district to 112

Call Gebser performed the vole ot

piononncing his acting a success. The
agility and gymnastic skill of the actor
enabled him to peifonn the ditteient
tricks peculiar to -Darwin's progeni
tors" with perfect ease. The costume
was not, however, what might have
been desired, and that made it so much
more difficult for the actor to be right*
ly appreciated, Q. Stohlmann, after
a somewhat lengthy ahsence from the
stage, was also among the actois rend,
enug his part with the same grace and
comicalities as in by-gone days.
We understand that the piece will
be le-produced for the beueht of the
excuisiomsts who aieto aruve from

You can geneyaly tell a successful
business man by his surroundings.
This truth is well exemplified in the
case of our friend John Zieske the
harness man at Sleepy Eye. John has
been improving by building on a fine
and commodious work shop and has
converted his former shop into a pleas
ant salesroom. And he has got it full
of everything in his line including har
nesses, trunks, whips, valisis, saddles,
&c. in fact everything that is usually
kept in a first-class harness shop. Now
the secret of John's success is in the
fact that he keeps only the best goods
in his line and sells them at a bare liv
ing profit and the farmers have found
it out and the oonsequence is that John
is establishing a business for the fu
ture as well as for the present, When
you want anything \n his line call first
on John and if you and he don't agree
all we have to say is, that you must be
hard to suit.

The following Letter has been sent
our Member in -Congress, Major Strait
New Ulm, Minn., June 11.1878.
Hon. H. B. Strait, M. C.
Washington, D. C.
Dear Sir:
The most important measure foi
this State is the speedy passage of yoni
bill asking Congress for an extension
in favor of our Pie-emption Settlers.
Thousands of whom that lost their
crops Cor %4 years are now poorer
than ever, and entirely unable to bor
row the money to proof up and pay,
they have nothing to secure with and
in fact there is no money in the county
that could beborrowed. Please explain
this to your associates and let them
know that this is an appeal from one
who is thoroughly acquainted with the
condition and circumstances of these
settlers. It can and should not be the
aim of Congress to ruin a large class of
our people when by an extension to
October next year, the calamity may
be avoided. Push the bill, and have it
passed before it is too late.
Very respectfully.
Your obedient servant
