Commencement exercises of the New
Ulm high school were held in thefessorships
Brown county court house Friday even
ing, when eighteen young men and
women, the largest class ever known
to the institution, received their diplo
mas. The exercises were held in theduties
district court room, which was prettily
decorated with flowers and ferns, and
filled to overflowing with an audience
that was enthusiastic and appreciative
and whose interest was unflagging.
Every seat in the spacious hall was
occupied, while late comers stood in
congested groups about the doorways.
Seated within the railing reserved
for members of the bar were the grad
uates, their parents, members of trie
board of education and others, while
near the class appeared the motto,
W Aim at Perfection," in gold let
ters upon a field of red. The whole
presented a delightful uppearance of
youth and beauty, the handsome white
gowns of the girls being thrown into
sharp contrast and relief by the black
suited young men.
The program was one of unusual in
terest and merit, the essays being
handled in an original manner and all
being well delivered. In opening, the
class chorus gave Veazie's "Son of
Welcome," and following this Miss
Emma G. Aufderheide, the salutatori
an, read her essay entitled, "The Bard
of A Miss Aufderheide's effort
was ery pleasing and she was accord
ed hearty applause.
A piano solo, "The Palms, by
Miss Elsie H. Eckstein came' next
and was enthusiaticallj received.
Miss Eckstein is a mistress of her in
strument but she has never played bet
ter or more charmingly than to Friday
night's audience. Miss Lilj M. Juni
did her share toward entertaining well
by giving a jocose history of the class.
She told of many of the happy inci
dents and experiences of school life
and paved the way for the class pro
phethess, Miss Bretta Price. The lat
ter spoke a clear, natural voice and
her utterances penetrated the most re
mote corners of the big room. In pic
turing the futures of her classmates
Miss Price made numerous happy and
humorous allusions, her reading prov
ing a distinct feature of the program.
After the chorus had sung "Joi in
Pleasure," Miss Estella M. Swanson
gave the valedictory- She took as her
$ieme, A Turning Point in History,"
and handled her topic most compre
hensively, her vivid and realistic de
scriptions conjuring up in the imagi
nation the very scenes of the important
period and epoch which she so faith
fully pictured. An excellently rendered
violin solo, "L a Fille du Regiment,"
by Max Pfaender folowed, and then
Prof. W W Folwell, of the University
of Minnesota faculty, delivered the ad
dress of the evening.
Prof. Folwell's lecture was not in
any sense flowery or farfetched, but
rather a good, plain, common
sense talk on the good points and in
efflciences of our high school system.
He confined himself exclusively to a
discussion of high schools and high
school work and advocated adding two
years to the four-year course. Under
the present state of affairs, Prof. Fol
well stated, the high school student,
upon graduating, was little more than
grounded in any of his subjects. Two
more years would allow the students
to complete the work which is now un
completed, and he believed the present
arrangement to be responsible for so
many boys dropping out of the high
school before the completion of the
course. They really had nothing to
look forward to and reasoned that they
might as well stop early as late. Fo
the young men and women who cannot
or have no inclination to take a higher
education he recommended the intro
duction of courses in manual training
and business, fitting them for the trades
or for useful labors in commercial
Upon concluding his remarks Prof.
Folwell presented the graduates with
their diplomas and then the class
chorus sang "Springtime" as the
closing number, Miss Elsie H. Eck
stein playing the accompaniment. I
addition to being the largest in num
bers, the class of 1903 is one of the
most popular which has ever gradu-
ated from the New Ulm'school. This
popularity was testified to Friday
evening by the great number of pre
sents received by the members, one of
the ante rooms being completely filled
with handsome floral offerings and ex
pensive gifts from relatives and ad
PASTOR WILL RESIGN
Rev. Christian Hohn to Leave New Ulm
Something of a surprise has been
created by the announcement that Rev.
Christian Hohn will resign as pastor
of the German Methodist church of
this city, it being his intention to leave
New Ulm next September. I re.
linquishing his pastorate Rev. Hohn
does so to accept a. chair in the St.
Paul Par college, one of the leading
German Methodist educational insti
tutions in the Northwest.
During commencement week the
board of trustees of the institution
elected him to the vice presidency of
the school and he will also become a
member of the faculty, having the pro
of history and literature.
Considering that the field opened to
him is wider and offers greater oppor
tunity, he has decided to accept the
flattering offer and will assume his new
in the fall.
Although the college opens the first
week in September it is not Jikely that
Rev. Hohn will leave his present con
gregation until a fortnight later. He
will remain in New Ulm until after the
meeting of the conference, whose
sessions are to be held in the Dayton's
Bluff Methodist church, St. Paul, when
his successor will be named.
Rev. Hohn has labored here for
about a year, coming toNewUlmfrom
Warrentown, Mo., directly after his
graduation from the theological semi
nary. He was first called to supply
the vacancy in the local pulpit caused
by the death of Rev. Fritze but when
the conference met here last September
his congregation petitioned so earnest
ly for his return that he was assigned
for another year. Rev. Hohn is a con
scientious Christian worker, a man of
wide learning and culture, and will un
doubtedly win distinction and honor in
THEIR SHOP IS OPEN
Messrs. Luetka & Harvey Now Ready to
Messrs. Luetka & Harvey, pro
prietors of the new machine shop in
the building formerly occupied by the
New Ulm Shoe factory, have opened
for business and have already turned
out considerable work. The machine
for which they have been waiting
several weeks, a planer, has at last
arrived and they are now in a position
to commence operations.
They could have opened for business
some time ago but the proprietors de
termined not to announce themselves
as ready until all their machinery had
arrived and they were capable of
handling all sorts of work.
The new firm occupies both the first
and second floors of the shoe factory
and uses the addition for their black
smith shop. Both are experienced,
competent workmen and the machines
and appliances with which they intend
turning out their work are of the very
latest designs. They will repair all
kinds of machinery and will also de
vote considerable attention to heavy
blacksmithing, intending to make a
specialty of boiler and flue work.
When it is considered that many of
the towns and villages near here have
no machine shops, it would seem that
the field presented was a good one and
that Messrs Luetka & Harvey should
make a success of their venture. They
are progressive and enterprising and
will doubtless receive generous patron-
Supplies For National Guard.
The officers of the Minnesota Nation
al guard have received information
from the war departmentthat the guard
will receive $19,117 worth of supplies
and equipment as its share of the $2.
000,000 appropriation made by the re
cent congress. The purpose of this
appropriation is to equip the state
militia with the same ordinance and
accoutrements as are used by the regu
lar army. The infantry will \e sup
plied with Krag-Jorgensen rifles in
place of the present Springfield rifles.
The artillery will be equipped with the
new guns, which are 3-inch bore equip
ped with four field guns and onegatling
Bond Issue is Carried.
At the special election held Tuesday
for the purpose of voting upon the
question of issuing bonds to pay the
outstanding indebtedness of the village
not represented by its present bonds
the issue was carried by a vote of 51
to 3. There had been no special in
terest aroused over the question, hence
the small vote polled. But from the
taxpayers' point of view it is con
sidered a matter of importance to the
village that the bond issue has been
authorized, as the interest on the bonds
will be less than it is on the indebted
ness for which they will be issued.—

New Ulm was extremely fortunate
•last week in the way of securing con
ventions. Tnree organizations, in
session in different parts of the state,
voted to come here for their next meet
ings. Two of these gatherings, the
state convention of the Catholic Order
of Foresters and the conference con
vention of the Epworth League of the
Northern German M. E. Church, were
formerly invited to New Ulm by dele
gates sent from this city, but the third,
the annual meeting of the Minnesota
State Federation of Labor, came here
Landing the state convention of the
Catholic Order of Foresters was a dis
tinct achievement and great credit
is due Chief Ranger Andrew Eck
stein and Secretary Thos. Kretsch,
who represented St. John Court, for
their successful efforts. Not until the
week before the convention did the lo
cal court decide to enter the race but
what they lacked in the way of an
early start they made up in hustling
When the former reached St. Cloud,
where this year's meeting was held, he
found that Faribault was the field
and working hard. Their delegation
made an exhaustive campaign but
when the test came they were hopelessly
beaten. Less than a dozen delegates
voted for the Rice county town aud in
favoring New Ulm the convention was
This meetingwill be held next in 1905.
It continues three days and is alwaj
well attended. For it the state court
defrays the expenses of 500 delegates
and in addition there are an hundred
or more visitors.
At Faribault last week the New Ulm
delegation to theconference convention
of the Epworth League was equally
successful in their effort to bring the
meeting home in 1905. They were op
posed by St. Paul and Minneapolis
but at precisely the right moment Rev.
Christian Hohn took the floor to urge
New Ulm's claims. He made an elo
quent plea for recognition and when he
had completed the delegates ga\ New
Ulm a very substantial majority.
As a rule about 125 delegates attend
the Epworth League meetings but two
years hence a Sunday school conven
tion will be held in connection. This
will fully double the attendance and it
is expected that between 200 and 250
people will be present. The meetings
will cover four days.
The third convention secured was
that of the Minnesota State Federa
tion of Labor. I held an important
meeting in Little Falls Monday, Tues
day and Wednesday and on the latter
day voted to hold the 1904 convention
at this place, turning down the city of
Stillwater, which was after the plum.
In selecting New Ulm it is understood
that the labor people have in view the
organization of the town. At the pres
ent time the union men of Mankato are
brought into competition with non-un
ion workmen here and the state officers
desire a closer affiliation. This meet
ing will be held next June and will at
tract about 300 delegates.
Eckstein Elected Director.
At the state convention of the Catho
lic Order of Foresters, held in St.
Cloud last week, Andrew Eckstein
of this city, chief ranger of St. John
Court, was elected as one of the five
directors of the state court. Mr. Eck
stein reports the finest class*of treat
ment at the hands of the St. Cloud
Foresters and states that the conven
tion was very successful, a number of im
portant recommendations being made
to the national convention. He did not
return from St. Cloud until Friday
morning, a washout between that city
and Minneapolis havmgcompelled the
abandonment of a train. Thos.
Kretsch, who accompanied Mr. Eck
stein to the meeting, reached home
