ELLERY B. TREAT E.B. Treat died on Thursday evening last after a sickness of one week's duration. When first taken sick about one week before his death, no one believed that for him “life's fatal fever” was so near over. The man seemed so strong, so active in the pursuits of his profession, so entertaining a companion in social gathering that it seemed difficult to realize that he should so suddenly be called to pay the great debt of Nature. During he brief illness he suffered indescribable pain but bore it with manly fortitude. He did not share the hope of his friends that his sickness was one of those ills which checker life without terminating it. He believed it to be the final struggle and that Death was to be triumphant. But no repining of his added to the anguish of his sorrowing family. He contemplated death without a murmur as he had suffered pain without complaint. E.B. Treat was born in Erie county, N.Y., August 30, 1838. He attended school at Aurora Academy until he was 16 years or age, when he went to Buffalo and entered the law office of Backus & Lanning as a student. He was admitted to the bar December 1st, 1859. He came to Wisconsin in 1860 and taught school for six months in Sharon, Walworth county, this state. At the opening of the war he returned to Aurora organized a company of volunteers and was commissioned Lieutenant, but was compelled to resign on account of ill health. He was admitted to the bar in Milwaukee, April 16, 1861, and at Chicago, April 19, 1861. From Chicago he came to Sheboygan on law business and was so well pleased with the county that he resolved to settle there, which he did in 1862. In the fall of the same year he was elected district attorney of Sheboygan county. June 29, 1863, he married Charlotte H. Farnsworth, daughter of one of the oldest settlers of Sheboygan county. The following spring he came to Manitowoc and purchased the law business of Wm. F. Nichols, and formed a partnership with Wm. Hamilton. The partnership then formed continued for four or five years. He was elected district attorney of Manitowoc county for a number of terms. After the dissolution of partner- ship with Hamilton, Mr. Treat continued the practice of law by himself, and in 1872 formed a partnership with L.J. Nash. This was dissolved a short while after and Mr. Treat gradually discontinued his law practice and went into other business. But some unfortunate speculations compelled him to resume the practice of his profession. At the time of his death he was in partnership with John Franz and had quite a lucrative practice. In 1870 Mr. Treat became the proprietor of the PILOT and it was edited by him for the period of one year. Although the work was a new experience to him, he gave evidence of a journal- istic ability of high order. He was a pithy nervous and graceful writer and under his management the PILOT wielded quite an influence in the county. As a lawyer Mr. Treat was painstaking, conscientious and honorable. His perceptions were acute and his legal knowledge was always available. He never made his duty as a man subservient to his success as a lawyer. No false hopes were ever held out to a client to encourage fruitless litigation. His success attested his sincerity, his prudence, and the faithfulness with which he discharged trusts confided to him. He was not a showy lawyer but he was diligent, well read and faithful to the interests of his clients. The more intimate the acquaintance with Mr. Treat the higher ones opinion of his ability became. But highly as Mr. Treat was esteemed in a professional sense, much as he was respected as a good citizen, a faithful officer, and an honorable business man, in his private life his good qualities shone forth most conspicuously. In acts of friendship, charit- able deeds and the many offices of a kindly and generous heart, E.B. Treat was the peer of any man living. The writer has known him intimately for the last two years and has witnessed many acts of unostentatious benevolence which produced for the subject of this sketch a respect, now bordering on reverence since the heart that prompted these deeds has ceased to throb and the hand that never refused to give to need lies still and clammy on the breast which held a manly soul.

ANTON TROCHLELL (d. 1942) Former Police Chief Anton Trochlell Dies Anton Trochlell, 82 (photo), who retired as head of the Manitowoc Police Department in 1938 after 43 years of continuous service, 19 years as chief, died late Friday afternoon at the residence, 715 South 23rd street. He had been in failing health 11 months. Joining the department as a patrolman in 1895 he advanced to sergeant, then to assistant chief and finally head of the department in 1919, after serving under four chiefs. He saw the transition of the department from 10 men to a force of nearly 30 officers. Funeral Monday Funeral services will be held Monday at 10 a.m. from the St. Paul's Catholic church. Honorary pallbearers will be chiefs from Wisconsin cities, members of the Wisconsin Police Chiefs Association. Active pallbears will be six officers from the present department, all of whom served under him. They are Captains William Christiansen and Frank Tomchek, Lieutenants William Lasch and Walter Herman, and Sergeants William McConnell and George Tulach. Two uniformed police officers will stand guard at the casket when the body is lying in state at the funeral home. When final rites are held Monday there will be an honor guard consisting of uniformed members of the local and visiting departments who will form in parallel lines when the casket is moved from the home to the church. Interment will be in Evergreen cemetery. Mr. Trochlell was born in this city in 1860. He attended Manitowoc schools and when a young man learned the coopersmith trade which he followed for a number of years and later was employed by a coal company here. Joined Force in 1895 In August, 1895, he was named a member of the police department, which at that time was headed by the late Frank Stirn. He served under Chief Jerome Pierce from 1897 to 1908. Trochlell was promoted to sergeant in 1908 and assistant chief on April 1, 1916. When Chief Groffman resigned from the force April 1, 1918 to take charge of the special guard force at the Manitowoc Ship Building Company during World War I, Mr. Trochlell was made acting chief of the Police and Fire Commission. On March 1, 1919 he was named chief and served as head of the department until he voluntarily retired September 30, 1938. He was succeeded by the present chief, J.J. Kuplic. In his 43 years on the force Chief Trochlell saw the department grow from the stage when officers served afoot, to the horse era and finally to the motorcycle and motor equipment. When Chief Trochlell traveled a beat in the downtown district in the late nineties, there was not much detail about reporting in. Sometimes when the men went out in the early evening they were not heard from again until they checked in early the next morning. Covered Harbor Area The chief's beat included the harbor and dock areas. Many times he was forced to move inebriated persons to the police lockup with the (Continued on Page 13, Col. 2) aid of a wheelbarrow. Not until 1905 did the police have the facility of a horse and wagon to bring in offenders. The City Council provided for rental of a horse from a livery stable adjoining the police station on Franklin street. Later the Council provided a horse, stabled at the station. With the coming of the motor car the department acquired a police car, later an ambulance, then motorcycles, and finally regular squad cars. One of the highlights of Chief Trochlell's long career occurred in 1935, when he was presented with a gold medal by the police force, the occasion of his 40th anniversary of enrollment in the department. His greatest ambition-to head the department when it moved to the present quarters in the Safety building-was realized in 1938. In the 43 years Chief Trochlell served, only one member of the department lost his life in the line of duty. He was Fred Mueller, shot by the Walters brothers on a north side street June 12, 1932. Another unique feature of the chief's record is that in the 19 years he was head of the department only one murder occurred in Manitowoc, besides the slaying of Officer Mueller. That was on Sept. 18, 1931, when Del Buettner, Milwaukee alcohol cooker, was slain by his partner, Frank Mesaros, in a Commercial street warehouse. Later Mesaros gave himself up and was sent to Waupun. When the Wisconsin Police Chiefs Association was organized Chief Trochlell was one of the charter members, and remained active in the association until his retirement four years ago. He was also a member of the Manitowoc lodge of Elks. Widow Survives Mr. Trochlell married Miss Anna Zahorik in this city 50 years ago. She died in 1910. In 1923 he married Mrs. Hiram Smith. Survivors are the widow; two sons, Edward J., and Anton Jr., both of this city; daughter, Mrs. Ray Krysan of this city; two step sons, Vincent Smith of Chicago, Henry Smith of Wausau; step-daughter, Mrs. Oscar Anderson of this city; and 22 grandchildren. The body will lie in state at the Wattawa, Urbanek and Schlei funeral home and may be viewed there tonight and Sunday. It will be moved to the Trochlell home Sunday evening at 9:30. The rosary will be recited at the funeral home Sunday evening at eight o'clock. Manitowoc Herald Times, Manitowoc, Wis.

OTTO TROEMEL Friday, Feb. 7th, Otto Troemel, Editor of the Manitowoc Zeitung, aged 42 years. Of Erysipelas. The deceased editor has long been a resident of this City and by his culture and courteous demeanor to his fellow men, has made very many personal friends, as was attested by the extraordinary turn out on Sunday afternoon, to pay their last respects to his earthly remains. His reputation was ever that of a true and faithful friend, high minded and scrupulously honest in all his dealings in his business relations, he was universally respected as one of out best citizens. Sociable, companionable, and considerate of others views fearlessly when asked, yet without the guile or ostentation that makes them offensive. As an editor his place is difficult to fill. He was radical in his politics, but earnest, energetic, and indefatigable in his labors for the men or measures which he might expose. If he had enemies their origin was conceived through some long and tedious campaign and tanned by adverse interest. His Stewardship and faithful; what more can we ask of. Man.-Manitowoc Pilot The news of the death of Mr. Troemel, caused our fountain of sorrows to flow, as we always regarded him as a true friend of humanity as well as one of out best journalists. The deceased, although a political opponent of State Senator Schmidt, the latter, through his representative, pays the following tribute to the late departed. "Mr. Troemel was an amiable companion, a faithful friend to his friends, a gentleman in the true sense of the word, a good citizen. The Republican party loses in him one of its most zealous members, and the press of Manitowoc one of its most capable, honorable representatives. Peace to his ashes." FEBRUARY 22, 1873


GUSTAV TRONSON PORTO RICO HERO DEAD. Gustave Tronson, a Member of Co. H, Answers the Final Roll Call. Gustave Tronson died at the home of his parents, 724 N.

Born in this city in 1874, the deceased gew to manhood in our midst, and was a young man, highly respected by all who knew him. Of a genial disposition, he made many friends, who will learn of his demise with sorrow. Deceased was a member of Co. H., Second Wis. Vol., and as truly as though slain on the gory field of battle, he has given his life for his flag; for it was during the stormy days of 1898, while with the command at Porto Rico, that he contracted the disease which culminated in his death; and his name will be added to the list of heroes, who gave their all for humanity's cause. Although not ill when abroad, he became so weakened by exposure and the hardships of camp life, that immediately upon his arrival home in September he was compelled to take to his bed. He improved steadily and was again able to be around, but about a month ago he suffered a relapse and was again laid low on his couch, from which he was destined never to rise. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ole Tronson, and was a carpenter by trade. Besides his parents, five sisters and two brothers survive to mourn his loss. Funeral arrangements have not yet been made.

On Way Downtown John Turczynski said that Richard had left home but a few minutes before the accident, and that he was on his way downtown. The district attorney said that there was no reasonable explanation why Turczynski was walking in the road along Custer street. Police said that the sidewalk was apparently safe for walking for there was little ice on it. The body was found by Mrs. Gerhardt Briest, 31, 1401 South 31st street, after Mr. Blashka left the scene. She stopped at the home of Mrs. John Everard, 961 South 29th street, and police were notified. The Turczynski boy died of a fractured neck and skull fracture, the coroner said. Besides these injuries, the youth had a compound fracture of the left leg and a shattered right jaw bone. (paragraph about accident) Turczynski had just passed his preinduction physical examination for the armed forces at the Chicago induction station last Wednesday, and would have been called for active duty by Dec. 12, or shortly thereafter. Born In Manitowoc (paragraph about investigation) Richard Turczynski was born in Manitowoc in 1925.
