Seats at an Unusually Low
Should All be Taken.
J-ai-ge Delegation From Sleepy E^e
Has Secured Fifty Seats.T .%*
Indications at present are that there
•will not be a vacant seat in Turner
theatre when the evening of the 16th
arrives. From the way people are
calling- for seats on the outside and the
•demand that comes for them from
•illages and cities along the two lines
of railroad coming into this city tbere
fs every evidence that if the people of
New Ulm, who have not secured their
xeafcs do not- do so soon they will have
to stand. _"
A. B. Cufct«, general passenger agent
of the M. & St. L. has taken the matter
up and will provide a train for the
'people from the south, making it con
venient for them to get here and get
jsome the same evening. This will as
sure a large attendance from Hanska
and the surrounding country.-
There will also be rates on the North
western and word comes from St.
Feter that, there is to be a large num
ber from that city. More than 150
"rickets have been taken out for people
who have demanded them and all have
»ft been heard from.
The assurance that W. J. Bryan
w»uld be here, when given early in the
-?all, created much interest and the
statemeut was then made that Turner
theatre would not hold all the people
»ho would go to hear him. It.„ should
be no less true at this time.
Prom all accounts that come to this
•Ifice through the exchanges this
.:«cture, "The Value of—an Ideal" is
-Dae of the best that Mr. Bryan has and
it is received with much praise where
*verfiehas delivered it.
Aside from the lecture it is worth
-omething to all to be able to say that
you have seeu one of the greatest of
^••eh before the American people today.
Mr. Bryan is a national character, a
nan who has attracted attention at
¥!«rae and abroad and his coming to
New Ulm is on the guarantee of theCourts
"burner society and should meet the
approval of all the people of the city.
In the hope of filling the large hall

mission at the very lowest possible
ivice, 75 cents to any part of the house.

Sleepy Eye people have called for

Twelve Times Elected Superinten
dent of Schools.
At the meeting of the school board
-»st night Prof. E. T. Critchett was for
ke twelfth time named as superin
tendent of the city schools without a
•issenting voice.
This is a compliment to Mr. Crit
t'aett, who has given his undivided
time for the past eleven years .to the
•effecting of a system in the public
schools of this city that has no superior
the state. In all this time he has
kept himself and the schools free from
the usual criticism and complaint that
*s too frequent in many schools and
•as given the people of the city per
fect satisfaction.
His re-election to this office and his
acceptance of it is in accordance with
The wishes of the people of the city,
'^oo many school boards make the
mistake of changing superintendents
jrequently but in this city that error
»as been avoided, and the results have
shown that the interests of the school
.md the district are best served thereby.
It would be difficult to get a man to
»11 the office as acceptable as Prof.
Vitchett has done, at least until he
iad been in the city for some time and
had become familiar with the wants
and conditions of the patrons of
schools, and he enters upon his
twelfth year of service without,,, the.
3east friction or discord.
Senator Somerville Protests Against
New Bill.
|, The question of the adoptioiP'of the
i'A' »ill for discretionary abolition of the
grand jury came up for discussion be
fore the senate Thursday and among
those who opposed the bill was Senator
Somerville of this county.
In his speech Senator Somerville
said the grand jury was the shield of
the common people. Investigations of
all crime for prosecution would be left
to thecounty attorney by the bill.
"Undersuch a condition," he said,
"where would'you have had any in
vestigation of municipal affairs in
Hennepin county^ if it hadn't been for
the grand jury?" Senator Somerville
then questioned the constitutionality
of the bill which would permit of
prosecutions without indictment and in
oppositions to the federal constitution.
Some excellent work has been done,
on the streets of this city the past
week. The commissioner has kept up
with the thaw and the refuse that was
loosened by the warm weather was re
moved as rapidly as it accumulated
and the cross walks have been kept
clean. All this has been appreciated
by the citizens of the place.
New Uim Foresters Want Opening
Day on Monday.
The local Court, of Catholic Order of
Foresters is making an effort to have
the date of the opening of the state
convention which is set by the con
stitution of the Order for the second
Tuesday in June changed to Monday,
June 12th. The reasonfor this that it
is wanted to have a "State Catholic
Day," as one of the features of the
meeting and if the convention is called
as late as Tuesday to have that event
would make it necessary for the dele
gates to arrive at least three days in
advance of the time of meeting.
Andrew J. Eckstein, Chief Ranger
for St. John Court, has taken the
matter up with all the courts in thefor
state and will doubtless succeed in
having the time changed so that this
important feature of the convention
can be readily inserted in the program.
He has the sanction of the Higher
Court to the change, and the people of
the city are ready to co-operate with
him in securing the feature of the con
vention that will be an attraction in
itself. In his letter to the different
Mr.-Eckstein says: ~-7^
"The reason and purpose of such
change is the following:— Our city
(in all modesty) is credited with being
quite hospital towards all and every
one, regardless of race, nationality,
standing and belief, and we desire to
have a "State Catholic Day" on Sun
day, June 11, the day previous to the
opening of the convention thereby
promulgating our order and faith and
granting our welcome visitors an op
portunity to fraternize for a few hours
before the work of duty begins."
Product of New Dim Stone Go. takes
Place of Tin.
A sample of the work that can be
done with the New Ulm Stone Co. pro
duets may be seen on the roof. of the
Masonic block. It is covered with a
mixture of numbers 2 and 3 of the
crushed rock produced at the quarry.
This crushed stone is used with tar
and in its completed condition is said
to be one of the best roofing materials
of the kind that can be obtained.*.
As the season advances the company
is receiving daily inquiries for
products of the quarry and the
dications are that it will have all it
can do to supply the demand before
the summer is Over. The call now is
mostly for rock for building purposes
and the company finds that it will have
hard work to fill these orders.
The exhibit on hand at the C. & N.
W. depot attracts the attention of
people going through on the train and
is a good sample of what the NewJJlm
Stone Co. is able to turn out. "rfis*

Milford Will be Firstof Rural Lines
Company Organized to Build Tele
phone Line to New Ulna.
Shares in New Enterprise Sell For
S $25 and are Readily Taken.
The first"move- in the .direction of
getting a system of rural telephones in
this county was made by the farmers
of Milford at a meeting called for last
Friday, and the willingness with which
the farmers entered into the-project is
assurances that it will be a success.
It was decided there to ^ell the shares
at $25 and immediately thirty-six were
taken, and a committee was appointed
to solicit further and to report at a
meeting to be held this week, "at which
time an organization will be perfected
and the movement put in definite legal
shape. •.-,
There seems to be a misunderstand
in regard to what the Minnesota Cen
tral is willing to do in the way of help
ing the farmers-and in giving the con
nections with the local exchange. The
Review saw the vice-president of the
Minnesota Central in regard to the
matter and he talked freelyC-'^f^'.'-^fe^
He said that his company was will
ing to give the rural lines anything
they asked that was in reason. They
would connect with them- at the city
limits and for the use of the exchange
would charge each subscriber on the
rural lines 25 cents a month. This is
cheaper than the service in the city,
for if there is a general rural system
connected with the city .exchange the
cost of rent to the city users will no
doubt be increased to more than- that.
Where farmers" are willing to pay
service a year in advance the com
pany will make a rate of $2.50 for the
year. The idea that ten cents a mes
sage would be charged comes from the
fact that Essig, which is atoll station
of the Minnesota Central, being in
cluded in the farmers exchange, would
have free acess to New Ulm over the
lines of the rural company and the
Minnesota-Centra! would be handling
their work for nothing, this the com
pany refuses to do.
More than this Mr. Schoeh says that
the Minnesota Central will furnish the
rural lines men to keep their instru
ments and lines in repair, the only
cost to them will be the pay of the men
while they are actually in the employ
of the rural company. In this way
the farmers will not be at the expense
of keeping an experienced man for that
purpose. When they are ready to
build the lines the Minnesota Central
will assist them in getting line men if
they desire it, in fact the farmers will
find that when they are ready to talk
business that the local company will
meet them more than half way.
There are many things in connection
with building into New Ulm that are
not in evidence at any other point,
one of which is the limits of the city.
To meet some lines coming, into this
city the local company would have to
build two miles or more of their own
line on which they would not have a
subscriber, and in any direction to get
to the city limits would cost the com
pany considerable.
In this respect New Ulm is an excep
tion to the general- run of cities and
the cost of keeping up these lines and
paying for the increased expense of
the exchange'will have to
met in the small toll rural subscri
bers will be asked to pay. y--
When it is considered that 'citizens
of this city are paying a rental of $1
a month for residence phones and $2
a month for phones in their places of
business, it will be seen that the ad
vantage to the rural liaes is great if
they manage their company in the
right way. ^Mjjjte'"'- ?fe :"".-
Rural telephones1 and rural mail de
liveries are advantages that accrue
only to the farmers, as far as the cities
are concerned, looking at it in a selfish
way, they are a detriment, for the ten
dency is to keep the farmers out of the
city and at their homes, so if there is
any concerted action in the way of
getting these things for tbe farmers
they will have to 16ok for it among
themselves, for while the business men
of the cities are not going to throw
anything in the way of their success,
it is not to be expected that they will
take the initiative in securing for them
what is to .work even this slight injury
to their business.
It may be difficult -to see where tnt
injury comes in, but it is here: A man
seldom comes into the city without
spending some money and if he can
telephone if he does not need to come
it is
he a
A If ILL fill I rnUllLU {s 6 the right way, and it is not like-
that he, will
not be here to spend his mouey^This I sied^e Roy, N. Y. 10
som&people look at it. It
ly that, there are any men in this city
who would be so selfish as to let that
stand in the way of wishing the far
mers all the comforts and conviences
they can secure, but it explains why,
if the farmers do not take an interest
in these things, they cannot expect the
business men of thegjeity- to become
active in their behalf.?-':
/The Review is-of the opinion from
what it can gather from the officers of
the Minnesota Central, that this city
will be given all the advantages found
in other cities when the rural lines are
ready to co-operate, though they do
noji hesitate in saying that where rural
lines anticipate, through Minnesota
Central exchanges to get a toll system
over their lines free', they will not
tolerate it and will shut them out. They
claim this is only fair to the sub
scribers wheLwpuld have to pay for the
same service.

Will Give Premiums to Members
Securing Applications,
President Barnes of the Inter-State
Accident and Relief Association has
this week placed a large order with a
Minneapolis firm for watch fobs which
he will give to agents and others se
curing applications for. insurance, in
the association!:^ -V^—V^- /.--7—
The idea is a new one and some
thing entirely different from anything
that has ever been undertaken. Some
expensive premiums were given to
agents at one time, but this was con
ditional upon securing a large number
of applications, and while it stimulated
the agents to increased activity, it did
not have the effect desired, and it is
anticipated by the new move to make
the interest more general. _-
These fobs, which are heavy gold
plated, with the best of black silk
ribbon, and are not objectionable be
cause of conspicuous advertising but
are such as- may be worn and admire
by anyone, are to be handled by the
agents and will be given to any per
son securing an application for the
agent or sending one directly to the
association.wii. U^fS"/'^
By taking "a Targe number of the
fobs the association is able to make
this unusual offer and give a premium
that is worth working for and by so
doing expects to realize an increase in
business that will repay it for the
expense of the experiment^
A number of different things were
suggested for this purpose such as
pins, buttons and the like, but it was
decided that these were all too common
and while the fobs are more expensive,
it is believed that they will prove more
