The people of this city, through the
personal efforts of Mr. Johnson, manager
of the Turner hall theater, will be given
a treat on Thursday evening, Nov. 7 in
the shape of one of the highest class
musical and elocutionary entertainments
that can be secured. This famous Schu
bert Orchestra and Lady Quartet has
never appeared before an audience where
it did not give the very best satisfaction
not only in their musical selections but
in the other features of the entertain
ment. It is one of the few very good
clubs of the kind that tiavels and their
wonderful success is due to the fact that
they have an entertainment that appeals
to the people. That Mr. Johnson's ef
forts are appreciated should be shown
by a generous patronage, as he has
booked the company on a heavy guar
antee. Let all lovers of the best in art
of this kind turn out.

Most Conspicuous Relic of the' Ruin
Wrought by the Indians
in the City.
A MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL STORY
Of the Old Waraju Distillery* that was
Once New Ulm's Famous
Under the bluff thatskijts the boundry
of this city and half buried by the debris
that has accumulated in the yean that
it has. remained idle, he the ruins of an
old distillery, quaint, picturesque and,
in a measure, grand the only really
noticeable relic of the ruin and desola
tion wrought by the Indians in the ter
riable massacre of 1862. Most notice
able about the ruin is the tall brick
smokestack that stands sentinel-like
against the sky as the sun sinking down
behind the ridge casts its long, black
shadows toward the city.
The place has a history, linked as it
is with those early days when fortunes
were reckoued by the thousands only,
and men were paid for their labor in
checks on the stores instead of in coin,
and when thft democracy of a frontier
life made all people equal, a community
of interests was almost established and
men were happy. No railroad had been
built further west than St. Paul, and the
thrifty, happy farming community of
New Ulm was enjoying a season of pros
perity, so much so that people from the
east were hearing of it and looKing with
envy toward it.
It was then that H. A. Subilia, an ec
centric man, visionary in the extreme,
conceived the idea that all tho town
needed to complete its happiness was a
first-class distillery. The project even
in these latter days would have looked
impossible to the ordinary peison, but
with his own aud what money he could
borrow Subilia went to work and when
he got through he had a brewery that
had cost more than $10,000.
The building was 72x46 feet and to
the eaves it measured 23 ft. It had a
capacity for consuming 250 bushels of
grain daily, though the highest it had
ever attained was in the neighborhood
of 100 bushels its construction required
200,000 bucks and the excavation and
hauling was done mostly by farmers
who bad agreed to take their pay in
whiskey after the building was complet
ed. Subila himself superintended the
erection of the building aud also erected
part of what was intended to be a mag
nificent castle, patterned after the old
Italian castles. He was principally
noted for the fact that he. was the only
man west of St. Paul in those days who
wore a silk hat this he guarded with
religious care, saving it from the Indian
ruin, and when poverty overtook him
and he could not replace it with a new
one, he would polish it with stove pol
ish until it would shine. In this way
he was able to preserve it until the day
of his death.
The distillery, however, was never a
success. Although at that time New
Ulm did not possess a brewery, the Ger
mans did not take to whiskey, but the
business was kept up until, when the
Indians swept down upon the city, it
was among the first buildings to be de
stroyed.--It wfts not razed, however,
only burned, and for years the walls
stood intact, but time and the elements
have crumbled them. Brick after brick
has fallen until now only the foundation

walls remain, and through the opening
where once was the office room there
now grows a box-elder tree that is fully
a foot in diameter. Owls and bats nest
in the'wa'ls, and the swallows swarm in
and out through the openings in the
chimney and down where use to be the
snake-like worm through which the
whiskey distilled, the boys dig angle
worms and pick the wild 'thorn apple.
Shortly after the erection of the plant
the following notice appeared in the
New Ultn Pioneer, a German newspaper
published in this citv:
NOTICE TO FARMERS.
The Waraju Steam distillerv will ex
change whiskey for rye, barley, corn,
wood, etc. We distill every day, there
fore farmers can safely bring grain and
secure whiskey for the hot harvest work.
To those who have no grain on hand we
will extend credit until after the harvest.
We are always ready to extend credit so
as to give like for like. We will take
hogs to fatten and will icturn same in
December or January fattened.

H. A. Subilia& Co.
I It is said that many who thus were
extended credit have have had it extend
ed lo, these forty years. There is one
barrel of whiskey in existence today and
its product would be pretty good if it
could be located. It is buried some
where in the vicinity of Big Stone Lake,
carried there when the Indians made
their raid. It is said that the Indians
secured a quantity of whiskey during
the siege, but this story is not credited
by those who were here at that time.
The ruins now belong to the national
organization of the Sons of Hermann
and part of the park property in which
is located the magnificent monument.
Between the distillery and the city in
the historic slough which afforded the
Iudiaus 80 much protection during the
outbreak and the famous crossing at
which all the members but one of the
Leavenworth relief expedition w»re
massacred. If the old chimney could
talk it would tell a history of New Ulm
and those early days that would outdo
anj thing that has so far been attempted.
The party given by the Library board
at Turner Hall was a pleasing and decid
ed success, much to the gratification of
the association. The net receipts of the
entertainment were about $67, though
if all who worked for the success of the
affair were paid in proportion to their
work there would be but little to turn
over. The ball was nicely decorated
witb autumn leaves and Jack-o'-lanterns
of alf varieties and expression—fantastic
in the extreme. Tables for cards and
carom boards were placed in the lecture
room and every provision made to jive
all who were there a good time. Danc
ing engaged the attention of most of the
young people until a late hour. To Mrs.
Peterson almost exclusively belongs the
credit of the success of the entertain
ment, though she was ably assisted by
Misses Friedmann and Luehrs. New
Ulm is large enough to have a public
library building if the people would in
terest themselves in the matter and in
that library there should be a reom used
as a sort of museum in which should be
kept all the relics and curiosities belong
ing to the history of this place which
would be the most interesting and gener
ally attractive place possible to find in
this part of the state. The Review
speaks for the city in its commendation
of the liberal patronage of the present
library aud the effort to keep it up-to-
