Prof. A. Ackermann of the college
appeared before the Council at their
last regular monthly meeting and in
cidentally reminded them of the
promise of a cement sidewalk on Cen
ter Street which the college should
have had before now. His main
reason for appearing however was to
protest against the excessive charges
for minor repairs to tbeir electrical
switchboard such as the blowing out of
la fuse. These they could repair tbenv
selves if given permission to do so,
but up-to-date this bad been persis
tently denied them. The matter was
finally referred to the pioper com
The committee which investigated
the low pressure turbine at Virginia,
Minn, filed their written report.
Although favorably impressed with
this style of engine, the, gentlemen
were not ready to recommend the pur
chase of a turbine for our plant, but
they did recommend that further in
vestigation be made. City Clerk
Albert J. Meyer and Supt. John Bol
•tad were directed to communicate
with manufacturers of various styles
of engines andCity Engineer Minium
waa requested to get into touch with a
competent electrical engineer who is
to draw up plans and specifications
for the machinery and appliances
necessary to adequately equip our
electric light plant.
On account of the numerous com
plaints that are pouring in because
several, of .the cross streets south of
Center Street are fenced off and closed
to traffic, an Investigation was made
and it was discovered by an examina
tion of the council proceedings that
Spring street between Seventh and
Sixteenth South Streets and those
portions of Eighth, Ninth, Tenth,
Eleventh, Twelfth, Fifteenth and
Seventeenth South StreetB had been
vacated at the time the M.* & St. L.
was built. City Attorney Somsen was
requested to take up the matter with
the railroad company and secure their
consent to have Tenth South Street
opened for traffic at this time.
The committee on electric light was
given Jfull authority to erect a shed
near the station to store the supplies
of the plant, it having been reported
that no suitable storage room could
be secured. The contemplated im
provement will cost about $125.
The committee which bad been ap
pointed to investigate sewer condi
tons in South German Park report*
through its chairman that some of the
property owners along South German
St. had laid underground sewers from
their premises to the park, and that

by reason thereof there was grave
danger that the water in the springs
would be contaminated* As a majority
of the abutting property owners are
agreeable to having public sewers laid
next year, this nuisance will soon be
abated. ,.||fc
The report of Fire Marshall Jos. F.
Groebner which was read and tiled
shoved that in general precautions for
the prevention of fire were being taaen
and that whenever it had become
necessary to order premises cleaned
up, the,, orders had been cheerfully
complied with by the owners.
Upon the request of Fire Chief
Henry Engel, Joseph F. Groebner was
appointed First Assistant and Fred
Pfaender, Second. Assistant. An
honorable discbarge was {granted

A building permit was granted to

for the erection of anew boiler house.
At the meeting of the Nicollet Coun
ty Agricultural Society held recently
in St. Peter at Treasurer Jackson's
office It was voted to withdraw from
the Southern Minnesota Short Ship
Circuit. The association faces a de
ficit which may run up to $650. It
is hoped to decrease expenses by with
drawing from the circuit and thus
escape the heavy drain due to the
harness races. It was also agreed
to raise the general admission fee
from 25 cents to 50 cents.
This, it is expected, will increase the
receipts to such an extent that no
new deficit will stare the directors
in the face.
The following officers and board of
directors were re-elected:

Late Building
Is Completed

Roller Mill ami Seed Co. Com
plete Elevator and 'J
Corn Warehouse. *$
The Farmers Elevator Company has
a new store bouse for oil, meal, Hour,
feed and salt. The building is locat
ed north of tbeir grain elevator and
is a two story structure, 18x36 feet, and
costs something like $500.
The new boiler house and met*l chim
ney erected at the south side of the
Brewing & Malting Company's plant
will cost from »2000 to $2500. The
boiler house stands approximitely
23x28x14 and the chimney is 80 feet
'high. The building operations are
complete and two new bolers each
having a capacity of 50 H. P. will be
installed this week if they arrive in
time to do so.
The $3500 warehouse erected by the
New Ulm Ice Company will have a
capacity of 000 tons of Ice. A little
figuring will show that this means
more than a dollar a ton merely for a
storage place for the ice. The ware
house is located between the M. & St.
L. Right-of-Way and Water Street.
It is of thoroughly modern construc
tion with double walls. Between the
two shells there will be sawdust and
hereafter the ice will not be packed in
sawdust but will be covered with bay
instead. Electric machinery will be
used'for hoisting the bloi ks of ice into
place. The old house will still be
used. Ice cutting will be late this year
on account of the season's warmth. It
will probably not begin much before
New Years.
Building operations at the Hospital
have gone forward with speed also
and a temporary roof covers the im
mense structure so that all thru tne
winter finishing operations can be con
tinued on the inside and there's no
doubt the building will be completed
for use early next season.
At the last regular meeting of the
New Ulm Fire Department Alfred
Schroeck, Fred Pfaender and Math.
Pederson were named as a committee
for the annual Firemen's Dance which
is to be held at Turner Hall Sylvester
Eve. Chief Henry Engel will be ex
officio a member of the committee.
The extremely late season has been
most favorable to building operations
in New Ulm and several large
structures amounting to thousands' of
dollars in value have been erected and
have been so far advanced in con
struction that only the inside finishing
remains to be done. It is doubtful
whether there has been a time when
more large structures were in course
of building at this season than is the
case this year. Another favorable
feature is the fact that all these
operations have been entered upon
because of growing business which
called for more space for expansion
and this indicates a healthier con
dition than entirely new enterprises
The Minnesota Seed Company have
practically, completed tne work on
their immense new warehouse. It
stands three stories above a deep
basement. Its dimensions are 85 by
50 feet and this gives the entire
building a length of 165 feet. The
basement Is built of concrete and the
upper portion is ame covered with
galvanized iron. It has a capacity of
ten to fifteen thousand bushels of ear
orn. The interior has merely
warehouse fioisn and the curing of the
seed corn will be done as before in the
original plant. The company reports
a successful year. •:.'•'^4^
The Northwestern Hotel recently
completed the addition of a third
story which was necessitated by in
creased business. The place is oow^a.
twenty-five room hotel and plans are
already made to enlarge it to thirty
five rooms in the spring.
The New Ulm Roller Mill Com
pany's new elevator was completed
last week so that it can beused for
storing of grain. It has a capacity
of 45,0)0 bushels. It, too, is a frame,
ironclad building and was erected by
Chas. E. Web9ter of Winthrop. The
building was necessitated by the
growing grain trade of the Mill.
