City Council
Orders Repairs
South State Street To Be Put
Into Good Condition
Committee Will Investigate
Proposed Improved
Owing to the election, the regular
meeting of the city council was ad
journed from Tuesday to Wednesday
evening. The first matter that came
up for consideration was the propo.
sition presented by R. J. S. Jarter of
the Allis-Chalmer Company of Minne
apolis for tbe installation of a^turbine
at the municipal electric light and
water plant. Only a small amount of
the energy in the steam (about 20 per
cent) is really utilized and the rest of
it goes to waste under present con
ditions. Mr Carter claims that with
his machine installed, enough of the
steam that is now going to waste
could be utilized, so that the con
sumption of .coal would be decreased
practically one-half, or with the same
amount of fuel, double the energy
would be secured for the plant. The
installation of this improvementwould
cost from7 *20,000 to $30,000. One of
those turbines is in operation in
Virginia, Minn,, where the conditions
are similar to our own and Pres
Mueller was directed to appoint a
committee to go to Virginia and make
a thoro investigation.
Contractor E. T. Webster of St.
Paul having failed to put South State
Street into as good condition as it
was in before the sewers were laid, the
council directed the street committee
to go ahead and have this work done
including the necessary repairs on the
catch basins, at the expense of Mr.
Webster. The city council had held
back $200 from the contract price just
for such emergencies and this money
wlii be spent for these needed repairs.
Under our ordinance, no one is
allowed to do plumbing work in the
city unless he has paid a $50.00 fee for
plumber's license. Mr. Priesley,
foreman for W. H. Halsey of Mil
waukee who has the contract for the
plumbing work at the Loretto Hospital
offered to pay one-half of the usual
fee. This was turned down by the
council and City Attorney Somsen was
instructed to collect the, full amount
which we are informed, ha3 since been
As the contract for laying the new
4 in. watermains on Fifth North Street
from Garden Street to the Hospital is
to be let in the near future, City
Engineer Minium was instructed to
prepare the necessary plans and
Upon the recommendation of Mayor
Pritsche, August Kuester was re
appointed as keeper of the public
The matter of levying assessments
for sprinkling Minnesota, Broadway,
State and Washington Streets was
referred to the Board of Public Works
for consideration.
The public bathing place was leased
to Jacob Vetter for the ensuing year
for $5.00, fhe annual rental which has
/been exacted in past years.
Anton Stiemann, who has been on
the night police force during the
summer months, was relieved from
duty until next spring.
The Alfred Dauer liquor license was
transferred to John Zischka and his
liquor license bond was approved.
$? b\ C. Schnobrich and John H.
Arbes were granted building permits.
The council expects to meet in special
session some time this week to take up
other important city matters.
"si Th Vote on the Judgeship.
According to the official count,
Judge Olsen's majority is 104. This
is a trifle more than the earlier reports
indicated. The report by Counties is
as follows:

Public Library Program.
More than one blind red persons will
take part in the program which the
Women's Clubs of this City have pre
pared to give to-night, Wednesday,
for the purpose of raising funds to
buy book's for the Public Library.
The ladies have worked hard and the
best musical talent of the community
has been enlisted in the cause. It is
hoped and expected that all public
spirited citizens will attend this
concert so that the labors of those
who are working for the Library may
not be in vain.' Reserved seats for
the entire downstairs and the first
three rows' in the balcony may be
secured at the Pioneer Drug Store at
the moderate price of 50 cents. No
complimentary tickets have been
issued, even those taking part in the
program paying for seats. The
balcony and gallery seats will be sold
to pupils of the various schools at 25
cents each and are not reserved. The,,
concert will begin promptly at 8
o'clock and all "are requested to be in
their seats at that hour as the program
is long and unless begun early will
keep the audience late.

once, thereby gaining the avdantage
of an early start. It will never be too
late to enter during any part of the
contest but it will be to your own ad
vantage to get started as soon as
possible. Stop thinking aboutfcntering
and do so at once. Every minute
counts and to-day Js the very best
time to enter.
Remember that all votes are. ab
solutely FREE and will be given with
subscriptions and free votes from
both the Review and Post. The free
votes will be published in each issue
of both the Post and Review. .'-.*•"...'-•
Start with this issue of the paper by

papers. Do not forget that your
friends are aJso taking the paper so

reason theyydo not subscribe for either
paper see that they do so at once.
We want as many contestants in
this great campaign as we can secure,
and we want them to begin working
to-day IN'The more the better. The
main thing just now is to impress
upon your mind that the very best
sented by Miss Smith originated with
the teachers of Winona, and she- was
selected to give an outline of the same
before this meeting and urge favorable
consideration. The teachers' retire
ment fund is a proposition whereby a
teacher during active life in order to
come under the benefits of a salary
after retirement shall pay a certain
percentage of her earning capacity,
say one per cent, into this fund, the
state to make up the remainder of this
fund. No fixed salary upon retire
ment was mentioned by Miss Smith
she would hav#it based upon the earn
ing capacity of the teacher during ac
tive teaching life.
Miss Smith is a member of tne Wi
nona Teachers' Retirement Fund asso
ciation. She mentioned the fact that
many .of the foreign countries and
searen or eight of the states of the Un
ion had already adopted a plan where
by teachers at a certain age were placed
on tbe retired list. Among the more
recent states to adopt this plan is Wis
consin. Owing to this fact many of
the teachers of Winona have given un
their positions in Minnesota and gone
over into Wisconsin where they could
come under the benefits of this retire
ment fund,
The association was favorably im
pressed w^ith the proposition as made
by Miss Smith and went on record as
adopting either Miss Smith's plan or
some plan where the state through a
system of taxation could form a fund
for the purpose of pensioning teachers
after a. certain age. _s %df

memorate fne 56th anniversary of tbe
New UlmTT-urnvercnn and the 23d
birthday ofxtaLs/nes' Society.
This anniversary celebration is for
the members only and is looked for
ward to with pleasure by every one
affiliated with either society, because
of the really good time all enjoy.
Monday evening's function proved no
exception to tbe /rule and a tbonly
enjoyable evening was spent by each
and every one present.
The evening's program was begun
with an orchestra number, followed by
the reels of moving pictures and then
a one-act comedy entitled: "Die an
genehme GeburtstagsueberraSchung''
(The Pleasant Birthday Surprise)
which was put on by the young folks
under the ablr management of R. W.
Soberer. Jos. B. Groebner, Her'tha
Mueller, Frances Zeller, Walter
Pfaender, Peter Scherer and Kurt
Bell constituted the cast and they cer
tainly made a hit. The vociferous
applause with which their efforts were
rewarded was well-earnea and they
should feel sufficiently encouraged
thru this success to make their bow to
tbe public soon again. The play and
the moving pictures were Innovations
on the usual program. The Misses
Elfrieda Toberer and Laura Krause
sang a duet and Airs. Irma Monson a
vocal solo. Both* numbers 'were en
This concluded the program in the
large hall and the guests marched into
the small hali and sat down at the
beautifully decorated tables. The
bountiful supper wa& exquisitely pre
pared and the service was excellent.
Members of the youth's clas# had been
impressed into the service as waiters
for this occasion.
Capt. Albert Steinhauser acted as
toastmaster. The musical numbers
rendered at the banquet consisted,of a
piano solo by Mrs.- Elmer Biaeberle
and one by Miss Henrietta Hauenstein,
and a zither selection by Messrs. Wm.
A. Aab, Franz Kagemeier, 'L. B.
Krook and Henry Steinhauser. All
of them responded to encores,.*
Mrs. Geo. Schmidt, president of the
Ladies' Society, was called on first
and spoke at length and at the close
of her remarks handed over to the
Treasurer of the New UlmTurnverein
a check for the Sum of 9500 as a
present, a most acceptable gift, in
deed. Wm. Pfaender, Treas. thanked
the ladies on behalf of the society for
their generous gift.
Mrs. Frances Bellm pleased the
banqueters with a short humorous
poem.' Capt. Frank Burg recited
several poems of his own composition
which he had prepared while taking a
much needed rest in the Cascade Mts.
His words certainly struck a respon
sive chord in the hearjfc of those
Mr. and Mrs. John Hauenstein who
had been married 50 years on Aprii
20th of this year were presented with
a framed memorial which they accept
with profuse thanks. Diplomas for
years' membership in the Turner
Society were awarded to Wm. E.
Koeb, Fred W. Seiter/Paul V*oss and
Emil Wicherski.
Others who made short talks were
r. Ernst Brandt, Mrs. Ernst Brandt,
Mayor L. A. Fritsche and Julias
Krause. Mr. A. J. Alwin was rather
taken aback, when the toastmaster
suddenly called on him to tell about
his interview with the celebrated con
tralto, Madame Schumann-Heink
His*description of the whole affair
was very graphic and he held the rapt
attention of his audience during the
entire time. With a reading of a
letter from Hugo Roos conveying coc
gratulations for his%mother and him
self and family, the official part of ti
program was at an end. It was
followed by a dance which the young
people oreatly enjoyed.

November 24th, the Sunday before
Thanksgiving, has been selected as
the date when the crack shots of the
city and the outlying districts will be
given" an opportunity to secure a
Thanksgiving turkey for next to
nothing, if Fortune smiles on tbem.
Preparations are already under
way, so that nothing will be left un
done to make it pleasant for the large
number of visitors expected on that
day. There will be music, of course
and a "Hasenpfeffer" lunch.
The "Hasenpfeffer" will be prepared
by the most efficient chef of the Fair
Managements culinary department and,
there will be enough to go around.
The lovers of a "Hasentreibjagd''
will see to that part of it. Last Sun^
day about 20 of them went out to ¥w9 ''$$**&
din and Crone's farm and they were
lucky enough to secure 57 cottontails1^- «J
The promoters and commanders-in-'^^
chief of this expedition were Emil G^ J? v,
Hage, Alfred J. Vogel and Joseph*
Arbes. It is barely possible that a, *Jf
similar stunt will be pulied oflf next 4|
week. r-
Fully 200 turkeys will be required
for the shoot, and altho those io f,
charge do not beg for any turkeys or t'-'j*
other fowl in the shape of donations, ^srt
to help make the event a financial sue- $
cess, they will not refuse anything of
the sort. Any one who is so imbued r~£m,
with the spirit of Thanksgiving that
he must perforce give away things to
give proper vent to his pent-up feel
ings, should not hesitate to confer at
once either with Ferdinand Crone,
Pres., or Wm. E. Engeibert, Secy, of
the Brown County Agricultural So
ciety. Townspeople who may not
raise turkeys or other fowls should
not consider themselves barred from
getting the "giving" habit. Nothing
can equal the pleasure that a cheer
ful giver experiences..., Anyone who is
of a doubting Thomas turn *of mind
should try it once and be convinced.
The deer raffle should not be for
gotten. It is proposed to purchase a
deer which will be raffled off, and the
mflte with the lucky number may regale
himself with venison.
It should be emphasized in connec
tion with this shoot, that some of the
barns at the fair grounds burned
down this year, and it is hoped that.
With the money realized from the
shoot, the major portion, if not the
total expense of the new sheds will be
