He Tells Them That they must Show Cause
Wherefor his Nominations* are'
not Confirmed,
One of the "New Members Having Asked
Por the Mayor's Opinion, he Gets all
he wants.
The Letter is Plain and Pointed and Shows
{hat the author knows what he is
mayor for
E. G. Koch is mayor. If any citzen
of New Ulm had doubted that fact he
should havebeen present in the extra coun
cil session, which was held at Schilling's
office onThursday evening and listened to
the reading of the first official communi
cation handed in by the new executive
of the city. This session had been called
by the council, acting upon the request
of Alderman Steinhauser for a comuni
cation from the mayor as to his appoint
ments, and when the report had been
read it was quite evident that the council
lealized that in Mr. Koch the office of
mayor was not to be robbed of its au
thority or made to play a second part to
the whims of ceitain councilmen.
In his letter the mayor does not mince
matters. After stating that the council,
upon motion of Mr. Steinhauser, had asked
for an expression from him regarding his
appointments to the offices of attorney,
marshal and superintendent of water
works, he says:
"I am at a loss to know hat I shall
communicate to you relative to these ap
pointments, as I have noticed from the
minutes, of your meeting of organization,
that jou had at first confirmed my nom
inations, put shortly before adjourning
and upon motion of Councilors Roos and
Steinhauser, you reconsidered your A ote
and refused to confirm. Consequently I
expected that A ou would take up the
nominations in question at your meeting
last Tuesday evening and state your ob
jection if any such you had. In your
wisdom, however, you did not see fit to
do this, but passed the resolution, asking
for a conmumnication from me. I am
theiefor in the dark as to your objections
to these appointments, and, as I might,
by making new nominations, encounter
the same difficulties and as some of the
new members of 3 ours honorable body
might be displeased with any new ap
pointments that I might propose and op
pose their confirmation, I have according
ly refrained from action. In selecting
and nominating the various officers that
were submitted to you for approval, I
had only the best interests of our city
at heart and selected men, as far as I was
able to obtain them, who in my opinion,
when appointed .and confirmed, would
serve the city faithfully and do their
full duty, Had I, according to your
views and judgment, erred in making
some of these nominations and you had
assigned reasons for your disapproval,
certainly should have considered them
conscientiously, and, if convinced that I
had committed a mistake in making these
nominations, I should, with your honor
able body's advice and consent, most
cheerfully have tried to correct such mis
takes by making new nominations. As
matters now stand, how ever, I have no new
names to offer."
The mayor then enters into detail
and springs a surprise in the following,
all of which is respectfully submitted for
the council's consideratian:
"Relative to the offices of superinten
dent of water-works, I ill say that Mr.
Behnke would have qualified if Jonas
Laudenschlager had been confirmed as
city marshal. He will not qualify how
ever as long as Mr. Zieher continues in
his present position as chief police officer
of the city. As to the attorneyship, I
am again at a loss to conjecture why the
appointment of Mr. Jos. A. Eckstein to
that position of trust was not confirmed,
as in my opinion and to my personal
knowlege and I think all of the mem
bers of the rmer city council will con
cur with me in this Mr. Eckstein, dur
ing his administration of the city attor
ney's office, has been a very faithful ser
vant of the city and has done as much
or more for the promotion of the best
and true interests of the city as any oth
er man of his age. And I am satisfied
in my own mind that he would be as
faithful and as efficient as city attorney in
the future as he has been in the past."
Notwithstanding the above clear and
forcible statement of the facts as they
existed, the opponents of confirmation
persisted in their antagonism and when
a vote was taken placed themselves
squarely or record as against the pre
ferences of the mayor without any valid
excuse whatever^

i?» The Swedish Nightingales, sfSII
|S~One of the besst musical treats jfcjfat
New Ulm lovers of song have b5ea- fa
vored with in the past two years was the
reappearance on Saturday night of the
famous Swedish Nightingales, this time
only four in number. Two of the la
dies are gifted soloists' possessing both
range and sweetness, and when the four
sing together their voices blend in such
exquisite harmony and die away with
such a delicate charm that encores sure
ly follow and continue until the ladies
dressed in quaint and pretty costumes,
are compelled to return to. the platform.
The concerts have an attraction in every
feature that is peculiarly their own. No
leader's voice is heard, no straining for
effect, but a happy shading of voices in
songs suited to their range and quality
that is delightful.
One feature of the program, however,
calls for abundant criticism of an entire
ly different order, and that is the humor
ist, Mr. Day. For four years now this
young Bostonian has been traveling
through this section of the country and
each time he has dealt out with a limit
ed amount of merit, the same old chest
nuts, always imagining that he is being
enjoyed and that the audience is im
pressed with his humor to as great an
extent as he is himself. Should he visit
New Ulm again it is to be hoped that the
violent exertion to which his jaws are
subjected during the year will have
caused the moths to disappear from the
neighborhood of his A\ hiskers.
Death Of Mrs. Henningsen.
Mrs. Henningsen, the sad announce
ment of whose dangerous illness as the
result of a paralytic stroke was made
last week, died at her home in this city
late Saturday morning. She had suffered
only a wTeek, but in that time the symp
toms were such as to cause constant
alarm. Her death therefore as not en
tirely unexpected.
Mrs. Henningsen as born in Schles
ick-Holstein, Germany,on the 4th of A
ly. 1834, and married hen quite young.
Her husband died while they were yet
in the old country and it is only eight
years ago that she came to America.
She lived for a hile in Glencoe with
her son, and shortly after he had inter
ested himself in business here, she came
to New Ulm. Her lesidence here of
course has been short, but nevertheless
she had in that time formed many ac
quaintances and, what is better than all
else, gained a strong hold upon their re
spect for her many estimable qualities.
Only two children are left to mourn her
loss—Mr. Henningsen of the City Drug
Store and a daughter who resides in

Pearl Ray Commences Habeas Corpus Pro
ceedings for the Recovery of his
Late Friday afternoon the official
chamber of Judge Webber witnessed the
commencement of some very novel and
interesting legal proceedings. The case
is one in which Pearl Rea, a young man
of Tracy, demands the return of his child,
a little girl of four years, who is now in
the possession of Sanford and Ina Kin
more, also of Tracy. The details leading
up to the suit are as follows: About four
years ago Rea went to Chicago to seek
employment and left his wife and infant
child in Tracy. The wife, it is alleged,
then became infatuated with what is
generally known as a "fast life" and in
order to be freed of all hindrances in
pursuing such a course she took her child
before the probate judge of Lyon county
and complained of neglect and depend
ence and asked that the infant be sent to
the Owatonna State school for the care
of children thus afflicted. This was done
and the school authorities in turn, as is
permitted by law, turned the child over
to Mr. and Mrs. Kinmore, who now have
it in their possession and care for and
love it as they would their own. All tidy
was done, it is claimed, while the father
was in Chicago and ithout liis know
ledgeA'\*Nowr he returns, claims that he
is able to support the little one awl de
mands its return. He has as lus attor
neys Messrs. Somerville of Sleepy Eye
and Maine of Tracy. The Owatonna
school authorities, on the other hand,
have taken an interest in the case and
have retained Mr. Wheelock, a well
known lawyer, to defend their position.
The case has been postponed until next
Charles Heideman Creates a Sensation in
Justice Court.
He Takes Occasion to Roast the Officers
*A and Ohas. Stengle in Particular.
Monday morning the court room of
Justice Blanchard presented an interest
ing appearance. An old tramp had been
arrested, very peculiarly it seems, on
charge of drunkenness and C. W.
Heideman was there as attorney for the
culprit and also ±0 express his feelings
against a certain method employed with
impunity by a certain man to eradicate
these traveling pedestrians.
The case opened by the reading of the
complaint, made by Marshal Zieher
against the said tramp who gave the
name of Chas. Reed. Zieher was then
summoned as a witness and testified that
he arrested the man Sunday morning be
cause he was drunk. He staggered, he
said, and his breath smelled. This the
prisoner denied and stated that he had
been abused- Here Mr. Heideman arose
and, with all the eloquence that the case
permitted, tried to tell how the man's
staggering was the lesult of blows from
a club in the hands of Chas. Stengle and
how the latter had followed the stranger
across the street into the depot in order
to give him enoxigh. He had witnessed
the scene of abuse himself, he continued
and while he had no defense to offer for
the tramp's condition of drunkenness, if
he really was drunk, still he wanted to
know if it was to be allowed in the city
of New Ulm for a man to beat and pound
another unmercifully without receiving
a rebuke from the guardians of the law.
He also stated that such, scenes had been
known to occur before, without coming
to the notice of the authorities of the
law, but the moment a stranger was
found to be a little intoxicated and was
pointed out by someone who desired his
arrest he was jailed and then the courts
capped the climax by socking it to them
to the full extent of the law. He con
cluded by expressing his disgust over the
sudden change in the aspect of the case.
He had expected that the warrant would
be such as to bring out the true facts of
the affair, whereas he was disappointed
in finding that they had been cleverly
avoided by confining the charge solely
to tMt of drunkenness. The court, how
ever, would not listen to his plea, term
ing it nonsense and deciding that it was
incompetent, irrelevant and not pertain-'
ing to the case in question. Accordingly
the prisoner wras convicted by a prepon
derance of testimony of being drunk and
ushered off to jail to while away six
days with biuises on his arms and leg as
the result of a terrible and uncalled-for
clubbing, as he says and as a dozen oth
er disinterested witnesses were ready on
Monday to testify.
This is the case as it appeared in court
Mondaj morning and if it has any other
aspect, it was not permitted to appear.
M11. Heideman did not accomplish what
he set out to do, but his talk developed
one thing—that the. police of this city
are not doing their duty. There is no
reason in the •world, to be sure, if a man
is drunk, why he shouldn't be arrested
and fined, but there is gross injustice in
picking out one once a month and let./
ting twenty or thirty others go. Again,
an officer should not always wait for
someone to show up with a complaint.
If he reads his instructions carefully, he
wdll find it his duty to be on the alert at
all times to ferret out offenses against
the rights of the city and of every person
within that city, be he ever so poor or
ever so rich. Distinctly does his cate
chism say that an officer of the law should
be no respector of persons. He is paid
to maintain order and not to nab one
and overlook another in act equally of
fensive. The Review pleads for equal
justice to all. It does not believe in wink
ing at any violation of the law no matter
who may be the offender.

Milwaukee Theatre Company.
The Milwaukee Theatre Conqiany
concluded their engagement here on
Wednesday evening in "Der Pfarrer von
Kirchfeld." The play is a strong one in
itself,containing plenty of comedy togeth
er with a delicate shading of earnest gloom,
and when given such a natural and ar
tistic presentation as the Milwaukee
people are capable of it receives addi
tional powTer over the eager listener. The
fragrance of love and life as found in the
sections of Germany from which the
scenes are taken are sprinkled all through
the play and the sentiment is everywhere
pure and of a splendid type. Ernst
Gschmeidler as the wanderer and self
appointed outcast proved himself a mas
ter in the portrayal ot comedy as well
as of the keenest sorrow and remore,
and every turn of the actor was met
with manifest approval.
Mr. Werbke,asthepriest,against whom
fate seemed to have turned its stin«i\
was careful and considerate, never for
getting the exacting requirements of his
part, while Carl Back in the role of the
gay and loving country 3011th was a
moving spirit for mirth and cheer. Miss
Nillason took the lead among the ladies
is this particular play, and appeared to
pretty advantage in her presentation of
the innocent girl who puld have been so

The Council Calls for Bids at it Extra Ses
sion on Thursday evening.
When President Pfaender rapped the
council to ordered at its extra session on
Thursday evening every member was in
his chair. The first business transacted
was relative to the grading of German
Street and as soon as the survever had
presented his estimates, it as agreed to
advertise for bids. Two kinds of bid*
are called for, ^iz: For grading the
street from Third South to Third North,
including cross streets, so that it will be
80 feet wide and passable, and for grad
ing it from Centre to Thud South so as
to be only 60 feet wide. Tluse bids
will be leceived up to June 7th.

three to three, those Aoiing for him be
ing Aldermen Frank, Roos and Pfaender
with Steinhau&er, Schubeit and Rudol
ph! voting against. Steinhauser pleaded
that it was not personal lea-^ons that
prompted him, but a demand from the
constituents of his ward for J. Eckstein's
removal. To this Mi. Pfaendei took
exception, sajing that he also lned in
the Third waid and represented the same
constituents as did Mr. Sieinhausei, but
that he had failed to note anv -uch de
mand on the part of the people. Ik al
so cited the fact that the nu\oi was .1
resident of the same waid, ami would
not have taken the stand that lie did,
had he believed it detrimental to any
portion of the city. It A\a» of no use
however to argue lor sensible action. The
opponents of the attorney ere deter
mined to bring about his defeat.
Regarding the nomination ot Jonas
Laudenschlaeger, the council as e-\ en
more strongly opposed. Onh Fiank
voted in his favor, while Roos, Rudolplii
Steinhauser, Pfaender and Schubeit all
voted against.
Thus the question of appointments ie
mains unsettled with no jn'ospect of
an early agreement. The major sees no
reason for offering new names and the
council refuses to budge fiom its obsti
nate stand on the old ones. The puppet's

A a
Another Wolf Bounty Pake.
Almost e\ ery day incidents are related
which go to show the necessity of re
pealing the present wolf bounty law. At
Waseca for instance, John Rasmusseu,
claiming to hail from Freeborn county,
presented to County Auditor Sw enson
last week hat he claimed were the heads
of twenty wolves, and requested the
bounty. The frequency with which this
individual presented wolf scalps excited
the suspicion of officials that everything
was not straight and experts were called
in who pronounced that Mr.Rasmusson's
wolves were all foxes. He was thereupon
subjected to a long examination under
which the fellow broke down and con
fessed that the heads he had with him
were those of young foxes that he had
raised them and thathehadheretoforere
cieved bounty on foxes from the county
amounting to $246, that he would repay.
It is understood that the county commis
sioners have the fellow in charge and
have gone to his residence to get back
some of the bounty paid him on his al
leged wolf scalps which he admitted were
thej£gme as^ those he had with him.
