REUBEN MADENWALD MEYER SANE, IS FREED, BUT MAY FACE CHARGES Declared sane by physicians who have had him under observation since March 29, Otto Meyer has been given his freedom when he was declared able to care for himself. Meyer was taken into custody by the sheriff's department following an assault upon Reuben Madenwald, superintendent of the county insane asylum. It was necessary to use tear bombs to get him out of the shack he calls a home and in the trouble which followed Meyer was wounded in the leg by a bullet. Relatives appeared in county court and demanded a jury trial for the man but it was agreed that he would remain under observation for a time. Wednesday the physicians in charge of the case found Meyer sane and he was ordered released. Whether any further action is to be taken in the case could not be learned today although there is a possibility that Madenwald may have a warrant issued on an assault complaint or the sheriff take action because of the resistance to officers. Meyer is a large, powerful man and is employed as a mason helper, having worked for John Scheurell during the last year. Meyer attempted to drive Madenwald from the trial(sic) orchard and resisted the sheriff's force when it was called. Manitowoc Herald News, Friday, April 13, 1928 Page 13

L. MANN, MRS. A Runaway Last Thursday a party from this village, consisting of Mrs. L. Mann, Miss Julia Pierpont, Miss Clara Whitcomb and a boy for a driver, went to Manitowoc for a ride. Just as they were entering that city the horses attached to their carriage were frightened at some object in the street, and became unmanageable dashing madly down Sixth-street in the direction of the river. The brave little fellow who did the driving, although unable to check the speed of the frightened animals, succeeded in reining them into a pile of corded wood just before they reached the river. Had he not done so they would have undoubtedly ran off the dock into the water, and all perhaps, would have drowned. As it was, however, when they came in contact with the pile of wood, the sudden stop smashed the carriage and threw the ladies violently out otherwise seriously injuring them. The party came home on an evening train, decorated with court-paster but in tolerable good spirits notwithstanding their mishap. Manitowoc Co. Chronicle (Two Rivers), June 1, 1875

JUSTICE H.E. MARKHAM STABBING AFFRAY. Night before last a crowd of young people went for a surprise party to the residence of Peter Holsen about four miles out of the city on what is called the Herman road between the town line and plank roads. At the close of the entertainment the boys were chipping in to pay for the expenses and called on Louis Betermichel to pay his share. He replied that he had already paid and would not give any more. In the dispute which followed Betermichel drew a knife and stabbed Peter Holsen of this city, slashing him across the face and stabbing him in the shoulder, breast and arm. Jim Hall of the town line road then took a hand in and knocking Betermichel down, but he jumped up thrust his knife in Hall's arm inflicting an ugly flesh wound, and then made his escape. He was followed by some of the party but eluded prusuit. In the morning however he was overtaken by Conrad Meyer who assuming the airs of a person in authority told Betermichel he was the person he was looking for that he was under arrest and must come with him. Meyer brought him into town and held him until the proper legal steps were taken. He is now lodged in jail where he will probably have time to find out this is not exactly a free country. Dr. Frazer was called out to care for the wounded and says that Holsen is seriously wounded but will probably recover, the most dangerous cut being the one in the shoulder. Hall's wound is not serious. Betermichel is a new comer having been this country but a few months. He was arraigned this morning before Justice H.E. Markham on the charge of assault with intent to murder. Bail was put at $1200, in default of which he was remanded to jail. Examination was deferred until Saturday when it is expected the effect of his attack on Holsen can be more clearly determined. Manitowoc Lake Shore Times, Tuesday, June 1, 1886 P.1

MRS. JAMES MCNULTY LOCAL PEOPLE MAY SHARE IN ESTATE WORTH MILLIONS MRS. JAMES MCNULTY AND DAUGHTER MAY HAVE PART IN ESTATE OF THOMAS CRUSE, WEALTHY MONTANA MAN Two Manitowoc women may share in the estate of the late Thomas Cruse, millionaire mine owner and banker, whose death occurred at Helena, Mont., a few days ago, inquiries having been received from attorney’s in the west as to heirs here. The estate is said to be valued at more than $5,000,000 and Mrs. Cruse left no immediate family. Mrs. James McNulty, a pioneer resident of the town of Liberty, is an aunt of the deceased Montana man and with her daughter, Mrs. Joseph Brady, of this city, are probably among the heirs to the estate which Mr. Cruse had amassed in a life spent in the mining country of the west. It is understood that Mr. Cruse left no will, and in this event the estate will go to his nearest of kin, among whom are Mrs. McNulty and her daughter, who will probably receive a large share in the estate as it is not known that there are many relatives surviving. Notice of the death of Mr. Cruse has been received by Mrs. Brady and an inquiry will be made as to the estate which is represented by bank stock, bonds and ownership of mines in the west. Representatives of Mrs. Brady were not inclined to discuss the matter today, though it was said that in all probability Mrs. Brady and her mother would share in the estate. Mr. Cruse had been a resident of Montana for many years having located there during the early mining days and had amassed a large fortune. Mrs. McNulty had been in touch with members of her family and Mr. Cruse in late years and at his death, news was sent here. Inquiries are now being made by attorneys and if Mr. Cruse left no will local heirs will undoubtedly establish a claim to part of the estate. Mrs. Brady is the wife of Joseph Brady who conducts a milk route in the city. Feb. 23, 1915, Manitowoc Daily Herald

HENRY MEIHSNER HEARS FROM BROTHERS WHO FOUGHT FOUR YEARS WITH GERMAN ARMY Christmas brought Henry Meihsner, foreman at the Aluminum Goods Co., plant in this city, greetings from two brothers he had mourned as dead in the service of the German army during the war, the communication between the brothers having been established through the Red Cross society and Mr. Meihsner, always a supporter of the organization, is now more than ever enthusiastic for its great work. Four years ago when the war broke out, Christain(sic) and Karl Meihsner, brothers of the local and man and residents of Germany were sent to the front with the forces of Emperor William and yesterday’s letter, the first during the war, brings news that both have escaped. Christain Meihsner was with the Germans in the front line trenches practically all the time for four years except for two brief occasions when he was wounded and in the hospital. Both times the wounds he received were of a minor character and he was returned to the lines within a short time and was still in the game when the armistice was signed. The other brother, Karl, was also in hard service. The Manitowoc man had heard from his brothers and their service through other relatives but had doubted that they would escape, knowing that they were with the front line troops and the letter yesterday through the medium of the Red Cross announcing that both were alive and had escaped with but slight wounds came as a most welcome Christmas day greeting.

WALTER MEISNEST BRANCH FAMILY IS SEEKING SON MISSING SINCE LAST AUGUST Walter Meisnest Left Home to See Circus at Appleton and Failed to Return - Mother Anxious as to His Fate Makes Search for Him Search is being made by relatives in an effort to locate Walter Meisnest, a Branch, Manitowoc county boy, who left his home last August to attend a circus at Appleton and from whom no word has since been received. Young Meisnest, who is a nephew of County Supt. Charles W. Meisnest of this city, is said to have disagreed with his father over a question of liberty, the lad believing that he was not given the liberties enjoyed by other boys. Meisnest is a son of Mr. and Mrs. John Meisnest of Branch and up to last August resided with his parents there. When he left for Appleton to attend the Barnum shows in August he gave no intimation that he would not return the same day but his continued absence for several days did not cause alarm but when days passed into weeks and weeks into months, search was undertaken in an effort to trace the lad but up to this time his whereabouts are unknown. Relatives visited Appleton yesterday to investigate a report that Meisnest was at work in the paper mills in that city but the clew proved a false one and no trace of him was found. C.W. Meisnest of this city said today that no reason was known for the boy having left home as there had been no trouble with his parents as reported. He believes the lad is in the west. The missing boy is 18 years of age, medium size, stocky build, dark hair, a full round face, and has brown eyes. His mother is very anxious to hear from him, or to know where he is.

In part his letter, written at Boler, Lorraine says: “You will know before this reaches you that hostilities have ceased. We are in Loraine which up to recently was in the hands of the Germans. Our division (the Third) is one of the divisions chosen to form the Army of Occupation and although this is considered quite an honor, as only the best divisions are selected, yet I know it will be a disappointment for you to learn that I will not be home as soon as you have been expecting. The people here are French and Germans and the money mostly German so if we are here any length of time I expect to be able to speak both languages. We sure will have much to be thankful for this year on Thanksgiving day. I am all O.K.” Dec. 21, 1918, Manitowoc Herald News

HENRY MENZNER The council ordered payment of $40 to Emil Kummer last night on a protest he made on taxes paid on improvements on a lot for two years. It developed that the improvements were not owned by Mr. Kummer, although assessed to him. A refund of 90 cents was given Henry Menzner who said that he had been assessed on two cows when he only owned one. A petiton of Mrs. J.

EMIL MERTZ TOOK BRIDE TO SURPRISE FRIENDS Emil Merz, York Street Plumber Wedded At Milwaukee May 25 A visit to Milwaukee, a quiet wedding and the surprise of friends is the story of the marriage of Emil Merz, the well known York street plumber. Although more than a week has elapsed since the happy event, few people were informed of the happiness which has come into his life and the announcement which is just made public, will prove unexpected. Saturday, May 25, was the date of the marriage which was performed at the home of the bride’s parents in Milwaukee. Mr. Merz and bride, who was formerly Miss Ida Lietz, returned to this city immediately and have taken up their residence at 762 North Ninth street, where they are at home to their friends. Although taken unawares, many friends will extend a cordial welcome to Mrs. Merz.

He has acquired a wide personal friendship and is known as a progressive and capable business man. The HERALD unites with other in extending congratulations. June 3, 1901, Manitowoc Daily Herald


GEORGE MESSMANN Mr. George Messmann, the well-known life insurance agent, paid us a pleasant visit yesterday, though he still complains of pain in his arm from a bullet which hit him at the Battle of Langensalza in 1866. (27 June 1866, Hanoverian Army against the Prussian Army, won by the latter.) Messmann was serving with the Hanoverian forces and was hit in the right chest. At that time the doctors couldn’t find the bullet and the wound healed so completely that he was able to participate in the 1870 war against France, for which he was awarded the Iron Cross. Later the bullet began to move and went upwards along the chest and then down the right arm. At present it’s by his underarm and one can actually feel it through the skin. Eventually the doctors will remove it to stop his pain but are waiting until it travels further away from the armpit. 24 June 1909, Der Nord Westen


ED MESSMER Ed. Messmer, who has been at home for about six weeks, slowly regaining his health, left last night for St. Paul, Minn., where he will accept a position offered him.

AUGUST MEYER AUGUST MEYER, CITY’S OLDEST BICYCLE RIDER, AGED 80, PAYS FINE FOR RIDING ON WALK August Meyer, aged 80, the city’s oldest bicycle rider, was in court this morning and pleaded guilty to riding his wheel on the sidewalk and paid a fine of $1 and costs totaling $5.01 which he paid. Officer Ladwig charged him with riding on Franklin street walk. Mr. Meyer pleaded guilty to the charge and when it was suggested that his age should mitigate the offense, he said that he was not looking for any ? on that score. He declared that he rode a wheel because he enjoyed it and that he understood that he had violated the ordinance when he rode on the walk because it was easier riding and was willing to pay the penalty. The court then imposed the minimum fine. Mr. Meyer is care taker for the Hickley-Allen property and despite his four score years, is daily at work. He said that riding on the walk might be more comfortable but it was too expensive and he would hereafter stick to the road. July 03, 1915, Manitowoc Daily Herald

CONRAD MEYER STABBING AFFRAY. Night before last a crowd of young people went for a surprise party to the residence of Peter Holsen about four miles out of the city on what is called the Herman road between the town line and plank roads. At the close of the entertainment the boys were chipping in to pay for the expenses and called on Louis Betermichel to pay his share. He replied that he had already paid and would not give any more. In the dispute which followed Betermichel drew a knife and stabbed Peter Holsen of this city, slashing him across the face and stabbing him in the shoulder, breast and arm. Jim Hall of the town line road then took a hand in and knocking Betermichel down, but he jumped up thrust his knife in Hall's arm inflicting an ugly flesh wound, and then made his escape. He was followed by some of the party but eluded prusuit. In the morning however he was overtaken by Conrad Meyer who assuming the airs of a person in authority told Betermichel he was the person he was looking for that he was under arrest and must come with him. Meyer brought him into town and held him until the proper legal steps were taken. He is now lodged in jail where he will probably have time to find out this is not exactly a free country. Dr. Frazer was called out to care for the wounded and says that Holsen is seriously wounded but will probably recover, the most dangerous cut being the one in the shoulder. Hall's wound is not serious. Betermichel is a new comer having been this country but a few months. He was arraigned this morning before Justice H.E. Markham on the charge of assault with intent to murder. Bail was put at $1200, in default of which he was remanded to jail. Examination was deferred until Saturday when it is expected the effect of his attack on Holsen can be more clearly determined. Manitowoc Lake Shore Times, Tuesday, June 1, 1886 P.1

OTTO MEYER MEYER SANE, IS FREED, BUT MAY FACE CHARGES Declared sane by physicians who have had him under observation since March 29, Otto Meyer has been given his freedom when he was declared able to care for himself. Meyer was taken into custody by the sheriff's department following an assault upon Reuben Madenwald, superintendent of the county insane asylum. It was necessary to use tear bombs to get him out of the shack he calls a home and in the trouble which followed Meyer was wounded in the leg by a bullet. Relatives appeared in county court and demanded a jury trial for the man but it was agreed that he would remain under observation for a time. Wednesday the physicians in charge of the case found Meyer sane and he was ordered released. Whether any further action is to be taken in the case could not be learned today although there is a possibility that Madenwald may have a warrant issued on an assault complaint or the sheriff take action because of the resistance to officers. Meyer is a large, powerful man and is employed as a mason helper, having worked for John Scheurell during the last year. Meyer attempted to drive Madenwald from the trial(sic) orchard and resisted the sheriff's force when it was called. Manitowoc Herald News, Friday, April 13, 1928 Page 13

CHRISTIAN MILLER DEATH FOLLOWS PLAY Sad Accident in Which Two Little Girls Lose Their Lives at Two Rivers DEATH STRUGGLE IN WATER Henry Schultz, Sixteen Year Old Lad, Makes Heroic Effort to Rescue the Victims-Both Children Non-Residents A sad fatality in which two lives were lost by drowning is reported from Two Rivers and details of the shocking accident received at this office reveal the heroism of a sixteen year old lad who made strenuous efforts to save the victims and nearly met the same sad fate as a result. The accident happened shortly after 4 o'clock Friday afternoon, Mabel Garvis, an eleven year old girl of Milwaukee and Beatrice Pearson; aged ten years of St. Paul, being the victims. The children were at Two Rivers to spend their vacation with their grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Christian Miller. They had visited the beach and were playing near about when they ventured out on the boom and losing their balance, both girls were precipitated into the water. The current at the point where they fell into the river was very swift and they were carried down. Henry Schultz who happened to be in the vicinity, saw the terrible peril in which they were placed and responding to their cries for help, plunged into the water to the rescue. He succeeded in reaching them and would undoubtedly have been able to save their lives but for the girls themselves. Highly excited and crazed with terror, both grasped the boy tightly about the arms and neck, weighing him down so that he was unable to swim or make progress and all three were dragged down. It was impossible for Schultz to make the girls understand that they must not hold him if they would be saved and realizing the danger to all he freed his arms but when he again attempted to reach the others, they had been carried beyond his reach to their fate. Making for the shore he succeeded in reaching it in safety completely exhausted. He was assisted by willing hands and recovered shortly. The life saving crew at once launched a boat and pulled to the accident recovering the two bodies but all efforts to resuscitate them proved futile, and they were carried to the home which they had left but a short time before in life. The bodies will be sent to their respective homes for burial. The news of the accident spread quickly and a pall was cast over the city. The heroic effort of young Schultz in behalf of the victims is highly commended and the boy is certainly deserving of all praise for his manly act.

EDWARD MORGAN Last week we reported that the family of Edward Morgan, who had been missing since 20 December last year, feared that he had fallen into the river and posted a $50 reward for his body. The police searched the floor of the river but found nothing and abandoned the search, but Friday morning Charles M. Downer, while passing the mouth of the Little Manitowoc, saw a body on the bank and notified the police. Police Chief Drews went to the site and with the help of Downer, Daniel Fleischer, and John Smith, retrieved the body and took it to Frazier’s Funeral Home. The body was clad in a union suit, shirt, socks and patent leather boots. From the gold front teeth and the initials E.M. on the shirt, it was presumed to be Morgan’s body. (Two columns and several hundred words are devoted to supposition about the circumstances of the man’s death, and to testimony before the coroner’s inquest. The sensational nature of the case is probably covered in detail by the English language press.) 08 Mar. 1906, Der Nord Westen

MICHAEL MORRISEY CATO FARMER IS MADE DEFENDANT IN SUIT BY WOMAN Michael Morrisey Sued For Damages on Grounds of Slander and Hearing is Held In Court Here. Aleged slanderous statement, which she claims the defendant made, are the basis of a damage suit instituted by Miss Katherine O'Connor, formerly of Maple Grove, against Michael Morrisey, prominent and wealthly farmer of Cato, residing near Reedsville, defendant being held before Judge Chloupek last week. The complaint in the case has not been filed but it is said will allege slander and ask damages of $10,000. The case is said to date back two years or more when Miss O'Connor, nowa (sic) resident of Calumet county, left Maple Grove to visit in South Dakota. She alleges that through the tongue of Mrs. Morrissey a story became circulated concerning her visit in the western state which reflected seriously on her honor and good name. She also claims that the story was circulated far and wide and was generally believed and became imbedded in the minds of people before it reached her ears. When she learned of it, she commenced suit. Morrissey was summoned to appear before Judge Chloupek in an examination under the discovery statute but declined to answer questions upon advice of his attorneys, on the grounds that "an answer would tend to incriminate him." Morrissey was represented by Hougen & Brady and Isaac Craite. Both principals in the case are prominent and widely known in the county and the case will attract much interest. It will be heard at the June term of circuit court. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Monday, May 29, 1916 P.1

FRED A. MUELLER SON SUES ESTATE. Alleged Promise of Dead parent Is Basis for Claim Made by Fred A. Mueller. SOLD BUSINESS AT A LOSS. Says he Sacrificed Large Sum to Return Here and Wants to be Reimbursed- Claim Is Contested. For losses which he claims to have sustained by reason of the hasty sale of his business prompted by the express wish of his father, Fred A. Mueller has instituted a suit to recover $3,580 from the estate of the late Gustav Mueller and the papers were served Friday. Mueller was engaged in the drug business at Junction City, Oregon and came here at the time of his father's serious illness at the request he alleges, of the father and upon promise that he would be reimbursed for any loss which might result from the immediate sale of his business. $2,450 is the amount which Mueller claims to have sacrificed when he disposed of his drug store and he adds to the claim another $400 to cover the cost of removing his family to this city. Other heirs of the estate will contest the claim made by Mueller and have retained attorneys to fight the case which will probably come up at a date in the near future. The plaintiff is now employed as collector for the Schreihart & Mueller Brewing Co., in which the deceased father had a half interest. The inventory of the property is $92,000 and in addition there is $6000 to $10,000 of other property which will be dipsosed of under the will. There are nine heirs to the estate. In the suit commenced by Mueller, Nash & Nash represent the plaintiff, Edward Schmitz and Emil Baensch, the estate. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Saturday, May 9, 1903 P. 1

MR. MURREY THE BADGER STATE MANUFACTURING COMPANY We were quite surprised, the other day, on taking a look through the extensive sash, door and blind factory of the Badger State Manufacturing Co., to behold the extent of the business of this company, and the facilities they have for carrying it on. Of course the immense structure which this company occupies is indicative, in a measure, of the amount of work that is going on within, but one can only fullycomprehend its extent by going through the establishment, as we did, and noting the number of men employed and the number of machines in operation. The internal arrangements of the factory are superb, every machine is of the most approved kind, and each seemed placed in exactly the most proper and convenient position. Mr. Murrey is the ruling spirit within the establishment, and to his care and oversight all the order and regularity which prevails is due. He will permit none but first class work to leave the factory, and for this reason the goods of the Badger State Manufacturing Co. find a ready sale in any part of the country. Indeed, the Company find it difficult to fill all their orders as fast as they come in. Mr. Cole, one of the firm, is the business manager, and the ability with which he has managed the business of the establishment has already made its success a certainty. Manitowoc Co.
