Goede & Sattler's Gallery Dam
aged Monday.
Smok Conies Near to Suffocating
Young Man.
Noise Made by Fireme Awakens
a Woratschka.
Damage to the amount of several
hundred dollars was done to Goede &
Sattler's photograph gallery onBroad
way by afire which broke out in the
studio Monday morning. The blaze
originated when an attempt was made
to thaw out a frozen water pipe and
while it was in progress a young man,
Frank Woratschka, came near to
losing his life. He was asleep in a
small room opening off the gallery
and all but suffered death by asphyxi
Monday morning when the proprie
tors opened the gallery they found that
a water pipe in the dark room was
frozen up and to replace it in com
mission burned paper beneath the
faucet. A rag ignited and the fire com
municated to a partition, where it
smouldered for four or five hours.
Shortly before noon a passerby noticed
smoke issuing from the studio and,
stepping into City Clerk Schilling's
office next door, notified that official
that the adjoining building was afire.
Clerk Schilling unlocked the engine
house and rang tha small bell in the
tower, summoning enough men to run
a fire wagon to the nearest hydrant. A
few minutes later a general alarm was
sent in and when the members of the
department responded they soon had
two streams of water playing on the
building. At first the dense smoke
made it difficult for the firemen to
work but by tearing away portions of
the ceiling they uncovered the blaze
rnd extinguished it.
The tragic part of the affair was
furnished by Frank Woratschka, a
bartender. Late Sunday night he re
tired a in small sleeping room off
the gallery and was asleep when the
fire broke out. He was awakened by
the calls of the firemen and the tramp
ling in the next room and then discov
ered that his room was filled with
stifling smoke. Beyond being dazed
and stupified by his confinement he was
not injured, but his experience is note
worthy from the fact that only a few
weeks ago Jos. Sattler, one of the
proprietors, nearly lost his life by
asphyxiation the same apartment.
At the time the fire was discovered
the studio was deserted, Messrs.
Goede, Sattler and Emil Sprenger, an
employe, being at the Catholic church
taking a series of views. They heard
the alarm but thought nothing of it
until friends informed them that the
blaze was in their building. When
they reached the studio the firemen
had nearly finished their labors and

Their backgrounds and a number of
the other fixtures in the operating
room were completely destroyed and
the fire had burned through the ceil
ing and charred the rafters on the
roof. The card stock, consisting of
mountings, envelopes and printing
materials, and the chemicals, were
kept stored above the dark room and
were ruined by fire and water. A fresh
stock of cards had been put in only
two months ago and no insurance was
carried on it.
Goede & Sattler estimate their loss
at $300 or $350. Of this .probably $200
is on the building, which is the pro
perty of Mr. Goede. This portion,
however, is covered, as the owner
carried $1,200 on the structure in the
Scottish & National Insurance Co., of
Edinburg, and the Home Insurance
Co., of New York.
Immediately after the fire Goede &
Sattler ordered new photographic
materials and will have things in
working order today.
Otto Kohn, who occupies the upper
floor of the building, did not suffer
any loss.
Eagle Hill Awards Contract to St.
Paul Nan.
S. Freeman & Sons of Racine, Wis.,
who built the marine boiler installed
last summer by the Eagle Roller Mill
company, will turn out a larger one
of the same type for the local com
pany this year. Last week Wm. Bros
of the Wm. Bros Boiler Manufactur
ing company of Minneapolis, and J.
G. Robertson of St. Paul, were in the
city figuring on the contract and
Saturday it was awarded to Mr.
Robertson. He will have the con
struction -work done by the Racine
firm and furnish a marine boiler of
300 horse power.
Thursday Mr. Simpson, represent
ing the Bates Machine company of
Joliet, 111., came to New Ulm to look
over the specifications for the new
engine which the Eagle mill will put
in this summer. The plans for this
have been altered and a larger engine
will be installed than was at first in
tended. Tt will have a capacity of 5C0
horse power and the order for it will
be placed in two or three weeks.
Nothing will be done about award
ing the contract for tha addition to
the engine room until the foundation
plan for the engine has been sub
mitted. The shape and size can then
be decided upon and the job will pro
bably go to local workmen. It will be
necessary to move a side track to
make room for the structure and this
work will be begun as soon as the
weather T\ ill permit.
Is What Iowa Needs.
Andrew J. Eckstein is in receipt of
a letter from Chris Mathes, chairman
of the board of supervisors at Bur
lington, la., in which the latter says
that Mr. Eckstein's plan to increase
the pay of county commissioners is
exactly what is needed in Iowa. The
supervisors of that state correspond
to the commissioners of this and Mr.
Mathes is at the head of the legislative
committee appointed by the Iowa or
ganization. He states that he will
read Mr. Eckstein's circular letter
upon the subject of more pay to the
Iowa supervisors when they hold their
annual convention at Des Moines and
will then recommend an amendment to
the law regulating fees.
Revival Meetings Opai.
Revival meetings, which are to con
tinue through this week and next, were
opened in the German Methodist church
Monday evening. These services are
held annually and take place every
evening, with the exception of Satur
day nights. This week they are in
charge of Rev. C. H. Sauter, the resi
dent pastor, but next week the latter
will have the assistance of Rev. A. F.
W. Krienke of Owatonna, in conduct
ing them. They are, primarily, of a
public nature, and Rev. Sauter has
extended an invitation to all to attend.
Woodmen Will Incorporate.
While the Woodmen of this city
have been busy arranging their mer
ger, their neighbors of the Rural
Camp, No. 6763, have been progress
ing in another direction. The Milford
lodge, ever since its organization, has
enjoyed great prosperity and its mem
bers have decided to incorporate un
der the state law. They will acquire
the club house in Milford and con
template making additions to the
building. Attorney Albert Pfaender
of this city, is looking after their in
terests in the incorporation matter.

waiting, the little band presented a
marked contrast to the Indian of the
latter-day artist, or even the type of
redskin, who, under the leadership of
the late S. Bull, .achieved some promi

ago. All had discarded the blanket,
moccasins and feathers for the cloth
ing of civilization, and, in stiff hats
or cloth caps, fur coats, cloth suits
and even overshoes, appeared per
fectly content.
Most prominent of their number was
Mar-pin-ah-din-apee (Coming Cloud),
who is distinguished as being one of
two survivors of those who signed the
treaty of Traverse des Sioux in 1851.
By this treaty the Indians ceded to
the government practically all of the
territory which is now Minnesota.
Coming Cloud is now seventy-six years
old. He is a medicine man, and is
also known by the name of Dr. Enoch.
In the party was one who looked
even older than Coming Cloud, and
whose skin had the appearance of a
well worn alligator satchel. His face
was sunken with age and his eyes
nearly closed. Inquiry developed the
fact that he was known by the name of
"Bright Face."
The others were Mah-to-way-ak-api
(Saw the Grizzly Bear), In-ga-manee
(Running Walk), and Maz-a-wauk-in
za-na (Iron Thunder).
The delegation represented the Sisse
ton and Wahpeton Indians, and their
claim against the government reverts
to the treaty of Traverse des Sioux. By
this treaty, made in 1851 and ratified
some few years later, the Sisseton and
Wahpeton tribes of the Sioux turned
over to the United States government
a vast tract of territory, and return
the members of those tribes were to
receive annuities for fifty years.
At the time of the Sioux outbreak of
1862 the government took the ground
that the Indians had violated the terms
of their treaty and the annuities, which
had been paid for eleven years, were

treaty amounting to $200,000 were al

has been continued effort to secure
further payment, and the Indians now
have claims amounting in all to $3,
The members of the Sisseton and
Wahpeton tribes are scattered. There
are about 1,900 of them on the reser

more in various parts of Minnesota,
and others in Nebraska and parts of
the West.

number of years prior to his death

By the provisions of the treaty of
Traverse des Sioux the Indians were
given a reservation which extended
from a point about a half mile from
the western boundaries of Milford and

width of ten miles on each side of the
