LABOR HOSTS TO ASSEMBLE
State Federation Will Convene
Secretary McEwen Makes Prelim
Meetings of Delegates Are to Be
Held in Hall.
W. E. McEwen of Duluth, secretary
and treasurer of the State Federation
of Labor, was in New Ulm Friday and
made arrangements for the state labor
convention to be held in this city Mon
day, Tuesday and Wednesday, June
13th, 14th and 15th. He was accompa
nied by Garfield Morrison, second
vice president of the state organiza
tion and secretary of the Mankato
Trades and Labor Council, and Wm.
Erd, secretary of the Mankato Cigar
Makers' Union, and the three gentle
men spent the A»f calling upon the
business men and merchants of the
During a call at the Review office
Mr. McEwen explained the object of
his visit fully. It is not the aim of
himself or his associates to organize
the artisans of New Ulm, whether the\
wish to be organized or not, but on the
contrary the matter is left entirely
with the local workingmen. At the
state convention in Little Falls last
jeai New Ulm was selected as the
place for holding the 1904 gathering
and the meetings will take place here.
They Mill be open to the public and
tho&e who so desire may attend and
listen to the discussions upon labor
questions. Speakers of note, men who
are qualified by experience and study
to deliver addiesses upon the various
subjects, will be present, and it has
been the experience of the federation
that organization follows close in the
wake of a convention. It is, however,
purely voluntary and no radical influ
ences are tolerated by the labor lead
ers although it is but natural that
the should wibh to have unions es
tablished in the cit.
The annual convention ot the State
Federation of Labor is one of the most
important held in Minnesota. Ifwill
bring to New Ulm upwards of 400 dele
gates and the major portion of these
men will remain in the city for nearly
four days Two special trains will
come down from the Twin Cities Sun
day night, June 12th, bringing the
delegations from St. Paul, Minneapo
lis and Duluth and those from cities
COLDS CAUSE PNEUMONIA.
One of the most remarkable cases of
a cold, deep-seated on the lungs, caus
ing pneumonia, is that of Mrs. Ger
trude E. Fenner, Marion, Ind.. who
was entirely cured by the use of One
Minute Cough Cure. She says: "The
coughing and straining so weakened
me that I ran down in weight from 148
to 92 pounds. I tried a number of rem
edies to no avail until I used One Min
ute ough Cure. Four bottles of this
wonderful remedy cured me entireh of
the cough, strengthened my lungs^nd
lestored me to my normal weight,
health and strength." Sold bv Eugene

that afternoon and will not close until

While here Friday ~Mr.~McEwen ar
ranged to hold the meetings in Turner
Hall and the Federation headquarters
will be at the Dakota House. It is
likely that the Turnverein will arrange
an entertainment for the delegates and
other steps may be taken to make the
labor hosts feel at home in New Ulm.
Secretary McEwen will return to the
city in May to make the final prepara
tions for the convention.

LAST MOUNTAIN VALLEY
Fertile Region in Western Canada
Open to Settlement.
In the Southern part of the world
famous Saskatchewan Valley of West
ern Canada lies the beautiful Last
Mountain Valley, probably the most
beautiful and fertile part of all Cana
da. Just east of this favored tract is
situated Last Mountain Lake, a mag
nificent inland lake of clear, pleasant
tasting water, teeming with fish of all
kinds, and as the lake is easily navi
gable Steamboats will be plying on its
waters in the spring.
The Last Mountain Valley country
only became available for buyers last
year, and the tremendous rush of farm
ers into this section from the older
settled and choicest parts of Manitoba,
Assiniboia and Dakota, is evidence of
the estimate at which the district has
long been held by those best qualified
to form an opinion. The celebrated
wheat districts of Indian Head and
Regma lie immediately to the south of
Last Mountain Valley. Land in these
districts is selling at from $15 to $25
per acre. As soon as the three rail
wajs which will tap this territory are
built, everj acre in this district will
be worth as much, if not more, than
anything in the Indian Head country.
The general surface of the country
is slightly rolling open prairie, emi
nently suitable for wheat raising. The
soil is a black loam on chocolate col
ored clay subsoil. A certain percent
age of grit makes it a quick warm soil
for wheat raising, together with a
large percentage of phosphate makes
remarkably heavy crops a feature of
this district. For the last three years
the average crop in this district has
been over 28 bushels per acre, No. 1
hard or No. 1 Northern wheat. Parts
of the district are of more rolling and
park-like nature, and consequently
more suitable for mixed farming.
The purest of water can be obtained
anywhere at from twelve to twenty-five
feet. A good supply of fuel can be
obtained on Last Mountain, or in the
various park-like tracts in the district.
To quote Prof. Macoun, who for many
years was the recognized authority of
the Canadian Government on land,
when writing in his well-known book,
'-The Great North West." "Wenere
particularly charmed with the rich
country to the east of the beautiful
Last Mountain Lake, particularly
with the soil and the rich vegetation.''
Large numbers of farmers from the
Dakotas, Minnesota and Wisconsin
have taken land in the Last Mountain
Valley country during the last year,
and expressed themselves as highly
delighted with the country, and it will
only be a short time before this dis
trict is entirely settled up with the
verj best of farmers that are now go
ing into Western Canada.
Accident in Saw Mill.
Adolph Krambeer, an employe of
the saw mill on Washington street,
was quite seriously injured in an, acci
dent at the mill last Wednesday. He
was helping put a log in position when
some manner the carriage started
and he was thrown against the circu
lar saw, the teeth tearing a ragged
gash from the left wrist to the elbow.
When the accident occurred Nic Faas,
the owner of the mill, was near at hand
and his presence of mind in stopping
the saw saved Krambeer from losing
his arm. As it was the flesh was bad
ly gashed and the saw cut into the
bone. Dr. O. C. Strickler was sum
moned and had Krambeer conveyed to
St. Alexander hospital. The physician
believes that he will be able to save
the arm but it will be sometime before
the wound completely heals.
Tri-State Telephone company Dividend.
The directors of the Tri-State Tele
phone Company (the long distance
lines of the Twin City Telephone Com
pany) have declared the third quarter
ly dividend, at the rate of 6 per cent
per annum, payable March 1st, 1904.
Do You W A N STRENGTH?
If you want to increase your strength
you must add to and not take from the
physical. Tn other words, the food that
you eat must be digested, assimilated
and appropriated by the nerves, blood
and tissues before being"expelled from
the intestines. Kodol Dyspepsia Cure
adds to the physical. It gives strength
to and builds up strength in the human
system. It is pleasant to the taste and
palatable, and the only combination
of digestants that will digest the food
and enable the system to appropriate
all qf its health and strength-giving
qualities. Sold by Eugene A. Pfefferle.
PUMMELED HIS SUPERIOR
Conductor Said to Have Thrashed
Lamberton Scribe's Description of
Is Alleged to Have OccurrecTNear
Owing to the fact that there have
been a number of railroad wrecks over
the country the past few monts the new
assistant superintendent and the new
trainmaster on the Northwestern divi
sion through Lamberton, endeavored
to do a little detective work of their
own in hopes of teaching the trainmen
on this division to be more careful hi
running by switch signals.
We are reliably informed that the
said railway officials stopped off at
New Ulm one evening recently and
hired a livery rig at that place and
drove to Milford, the sidetrack just
west of that city, and just after dark,
shortly before a freight train came
along going east, they removed the
switch lights at the siding to see what
the train men would do.
The train did not stop but when they
got to New Ulm the conductor report
ed the missing lights but the crew got
jacked up for not stopping and inves
tigating why the said lights were out.
The crew informed some of the other
train boys so the next evening when
another got near the siding they no
ticed that the lights disappeared. The
tram was stopped and a search was
made to find out if possible the cause
of the lights going out.
The conductor, a husky fellow, spied
a man near by standing in a field and
took after him and chased the fellow
until he caught him and was in the act
of giving him a thorough drubbing
when the fellow who was getting the
licking said: "Hold on, do you know
that you have hold of the trainmaster
of this road?"
The conductor replied: "I don't
give a d—n if you are the trainmaster
you deserve a good thumping and I
am going to give you one, because
anyone who will do as mean a trick
as that deserves to be punished, and
he went on with his thrashing. We
havn't yet heard whether the conduc
tor was fired or promoted.—Lamberton
