ANDREW BAETZ (From the correspondent in Two Rivers, 23 July) Andrew Baetz yesterday celebrated the 54th anniversary of his arrival in Two Rivers. He has lived here the entire time and is one of the most respected residents of the city. July 26, 1906, Der Nord Westen

ANDREW BAETZ TWO RIVERS MAN GIVES INSIDE STORY OF NAMING "MEXICO" In a communication to the Two Rivers Reporter, Andrew Baetz, a pioneer resident of that city, says that an erroneous idea prevails as how that part of Two Rivers called Mexico, got its name. He says it did not derive its name from the Indian chief, Mexico, who died in 1841 at Manitowoc Rapids. In 1862 a man by the name of Jos. Lenhart settled across the river in the southern part of the town. He came from Port Washington and was employed peeling bark for the tanneries here. This man who lived here several years, had served in the Mexican war, 1846-47, and often told about his experiences. It was through him and this fact that the South side was given the name Mexico. It is not generally known that for a time the northern part of our town in the early days, was called California. This was because a gold miner from California built himself a shanty there and resided there two or three years. His name was Farnam. This was in 1858. Farnam worked for Aldrich Smith & Co., being a relative of Aldrich's and owned stock in that company which then operated the pail factory. Farnam often opened his pocket book and showed the gold nuggets he had found in California. A few years later he again went west. The name California did not cling to the North side, but the name Mexico is still much in use. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Saturday, April 29, 1916 P.7

THELMA BARKER WOMAN GIVEN FREEDOM FROM MISSING MATE Mrs. Thelma Busselle, Two Rivers, Tells Court How Husband Lied About Past Life An unusual story was unfolded in circuit court yesterday when Mrs. Thelma Busselle, of Two Rivers, was granted annulment of marriage ties from Charles Busselle and given the privilege of having her maiden name, Thelma Barker, restored. Possibility of prosecution of Busselle, if his whereabouts become known appeared as result of the revelations made in the case. Although the marriage of Busselle and Miss Barker was preceded by an acquaintanceship of three years when it took place at Milwaukee, June 25, 1926 at the First Congregational church there, returning to Two Rivers to reside, Mrs. Busselle learned after the marriage that her husband had figured in two previous ventures in matrimony. Further, it was alleged, the divorce papers which Busselle submitted were found to have been ?doctored? probably in an attempt to quiet his wife?s complaint. Learns of Family. After the engagement of Miss Barker and Busselle had been announced to friends, the bride-to-be learned that Busselle had been married previously and when he was ? with this he readily admitted it but exhibited divorce papers apparently issued at Virginia, Minn. and which revealed that there was one child. Two months later when Busselle suddenly took French leave and deserted his bride, papers in his effects disclosed that there had been not only a wife and one child, but three children, in the former marriage. Communication by Mrs. Busselle with the former wife at Virginia brought a letter giving the information that there was another wife at Vinton, Oklahoma whom it was indicated Busselle had wedded after his marriage to the Minnesota wife. Following up the information Mrs. Busselle learned that Busselle had married in Oklahoma but that his wife there had secured a divorce June 6, 1926, which however, did not become effective until six months after the decree was ordered by the court under the Oklahoma law. She was advised by the Oklahoma woman that she should have no trouble in securing annulment of the Milwaukee marriage and that Busselle ?would not appear to contest it.? Admits He is ?Rotter? About this same time Mrs. Busselle received a letter from her husband at Waldron, Col., in which he confessed that he was a ?rotter? and unworthy. He admitted changing the divorce papers in the Virginia decree and suggested to Mrs. Busselle how to secure a divorce or annulment. After presentation of the evidence Judge Kirwan ordered that the marriage be annulled and that the maiden name of Mrs. Busselle be restored, that of Thelma Barker. Miss Busselle, now Thelma Barker, is employed in this city. Manitowoc Herald News, Friday, February 17, 1928, Page 2

ELSIE BARNES Miss Barnes Does not Intend to Marry. The following from a Green Bay paper will be read with interest here: "A statement originating in Milwaukee and copied quite extensively, among other places here in Green Bay, to the effect that Miss Elsie Barnes, of Manitowoc, who was the affianced of Conductor Howie, who was burned in the Newhall House fire (Milwaukee) was to be married, turns out to be worse than a mistake. In making the statement, various papers have advertised to the effect that the deceased lover left her an insurance of $5,000, and that some one else was going to benefit of it, and other things of the same sort. As one means of stopping the cruel paragraphs that are going round, Mrs. Barnes, mother of the young lady, writes to Mr. John Robinson here, saying that the story of her reported intended marriage was utterly false; and asking that the denial be made in as public manner as the flippant allegation was. It is only justice to a young lady still in afflicton over loss, that it should be. Jan. 10, 1884, Waukesha Freeman

ARIETTA BARRIE The concert last Friday, at the Turner Hall, given by Miss Arietta Barrie, assisted by her two young sisters and Miss Ida Patchen at the piano, was one of the pleasantest entertainments we have witnessed lately.

The House was well filled with an intelligent and highly pleased audience and we sincerely hope, that the material success of Miss Barrie was as satisfactory to her as her artistic success was to the appreciating audience.

ORVILLE BEATLEY BOY AT MCKINLEY SCHOOL FALLS FROM CHAIR, STRIKES HEAD ON RADIATOR AND CUTS GASH IN SCALP Orville Beatley, a boy at the McKinley school, met with a painful injury that might have been much more serious yesterday when in some manner he fell from a chair at the school and struck his head on a radiator. A deep gash was cut in the lad's scalp and he had to be taken to the office of a physician to have the wound closed. Had the boy struck on his temple he might have been killed in the accident.

FRANK BECKER FRANK BECKER, TWO RIVERS MAN, MAKES DARING RESCUE OF BOY WHOSE BOAT CAPSIZES ON RIVER Frank Becker, the Two Rivers foundry man, earned a hero medal when he saved the life of a lad named Mizers. The boy, who was paddling his way up the river in a small skiff, fell into the river when the same capsized at Still Bend. Mr. Becker saw the accident and plunged into the water and swam to the lad who had already gone down.

When Mr. Becker reached the shore he was exhausted, but he and the boy were soon revived. Those who saw the accident say that it was the most heroic act and that both luckily escaped with their lives. Parties on shore reached out with a rake and helped Mr. Becker ashore.

JACOB BENDER KIEL MAN, CRAZED BY DRINK MAKES MURDEROUS ATTACK UPON OFFICER IN VILLAGE JAIL MARSHAL ASCHENBACH NARROWLY ESCAPES DEATH FROM HANDS OF PRISONER WITH WHOM HE IS FORCED TO BATTLE FOR NEARLY AN HOUR IN EFFORT TO SUBDUE HIM. JAIL IS COMPLETELY WRECKED Crazed by drink after an all-day debauch which ended with his commitment to the village jail, Jacob Bender, a Kiel farmer, last night wracked the building and when Village Marshal August Aschenbach attempted to subdue the man, he was attacked and for more than an hour battled with the insane prisoner, narrowly escaping death, having twice been assaulted with a club and an aze wielded by Bender. After a prolonged struggle in which Bender was felled by Aschenbach no less than half dozen times only to return to the attack, the prisoner was finally placed in irons and was brought here late this afternoon and will be arraigned in court. Bender, who is said to be a well-to-do farmer, visited Kiel yesterday and proceeded to take on a Christmas load and late in the afternoon was taken into custody by Marshal Aschenbach and locked up. The man, using an axe, which was in the station, wrecked the interior of the jail, reducing the bunks, chairs and furnishings to kindling wood and then started to cut his way out by smashing the door, but Aschenbach, hearing the noise, appeared on the scene and entered the place with intention of subduing Bender. The crazed man made a rush for Aschenbach, wielding a piece of the broken timber of one of the bunks and Aschenbach was forced to fight to defend himself. Twice Bender's attacks were repulsed and the man felled to the floor only to return to the assault. In his frenzy the crazed man put up a terrific battle and the officer was near death several times when struck by the club wielded by the man. In a final attack Bender grasped the axe with which he had performed deadly execution on the furniture and rushed upon Aschenbach whose hat was knocked from his head by the blow, the axe grazing his scalp. Realizing his danger, the marshal renewed his efforts and by a fortunate blow felled Bender who in falling struck his head on some of the timber from broken bunks and was stunned and the prisoner was placed in irons. Bender was in irons during the night and Marshal Aschenbach left Kiel for this city this morning, arriving here at 3:47 this afternoon. It is not known what charge will be proffered against Bender.

JULIA AND JENNIE BENT THE CONCERT.-The Bent Family concert on Thursday evening did not give us general satisfaction as the preceeding ones, but it must be attributed to various causes, among which the non-appearance of Miss Jennie is prominent, as this lady has been an invaluable assistant to Miss Julia, giving confidence to the other members of the family, and variety and interest to the concerts. Mr. Bieling displayed excellent skill in his performance on the piano forte, as far as we could judge from accompainments only; and had he acceded to the wishes of the audience for a solo, we think it would have proved to his credit as a musician.

MICHAEL BENZSCHAWEL FRANKNESS OF SALOON MAN IMPRESSES COURT Escapes Fine on Charge of Keeping Place Open After Twelve. Frankness of Michael Benzschawel, a saloon man on Eighth and Quay street when he was arrested on a charge of having his saloon open after 12 o'clock Sunday night, so impressed the court and city attorney that Benzschawel escaped payment of a fine, though he expressed his willingness to settle. Benzschawel attended the Eagles' outing Sunday and told his bartender to close at 12. When the defense was presented in municipal court today City Attorney Kelley dismissed the complaint and had a warrant issued for Ora Dewey, the bartender who when called in, said that at 11 he had turned the place over to one Reno, a vaudeville actor, who, it developed, was the responsible party. Reno has left the town however. He is expected to return and the authorities decided to await his coming, though Benzschawel said he would pay as the man was the agent through the bartender. The case is held open. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Tuesday, June 13, 1916 P.6

Returning from school yesterday afternoon the Bessert girl who was always ambitious to help her father with the farm chores rushed to the barn, against the orders of her mother. She reached there just as Mr. Bessert was about to shut down the engine operating the feed cutter. In reaching in to pull some corn from between the knives her right arm was caught and drawn in up to the elbow. The girl was rushed to the office of a Brillion physician and later she was brought to the hospital here. The arm was so badly mangled by the knives that it was found necessary to amputate it at the elbow. Unless complications develop the patient is expected to recover.

LOUIS BETERMICHEL 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

MR. BIELING THE CONCERT.-The Bent Family concert on Thursday evening did not give us general satisfaction as the preceeding ones, but it must be attributed to various causes, among which the non-appearance of Miss Jennie is prominent, as this lady has been an invaluible assistant to Miss Julia, giving confidence to the other members of the family, and variety and interest to the concerts. Mr. Bieling displayed excellent skill in his performance on the piano forte, as far as we could judge from accompainments only; and had he acceded to the wishes of the audience for a solo, we think it would have proved to his credit as a musician.

A.C. AND GEORGE BILLINGS A.C. Billings and George, his son, former residents of this village, with their wives, paid Two Rivers a visit last Saturday. George and his wife returned to Milwaukee, where they reside, the same day, his father and mother remaining to look over the improvements made since he left in 1863, returning to his home in Waukesha, - the Saratoga of the West - this morning. Mr. B., who is the same old shilling sixpence that he was in 1855 when he first landed in Two Rivers, expressed astonishment at the rapid strides made in this village, where everything was at its lowest when he left. It seems like old times to see our genial friends on the street and listen to his quaint descriptions of scenes and events which had transpired here within the writer's observation in former years. Success to him and his is the sincere wish of all who know him. June 15, 1875, Manitowoc Co. Chronicle (Two Rivers)

RICHARD BLOCK PHALEN AND BLOCK MIX IT ON JAY STREET Plumber Objects To Language Man Uses To Women BIFF! CRACK! BANG! AND SCRAP WAS ON Richard Block and John Phalen mixed it in a free for all fight on Jay street this morning when a difference arose over some language the former used to some women on the premises. It seems that Block occupies a small cottage near the Schmidtman wholesale house and was served with notice to vacate. New tenants arrived this morning to take up their abode in the cottage but found Block still living there. A dispute between the people who were about to move in and Block the latter using, it is said, abusive language which Phalen who was standing near, objected to. "If I was that woman's husband, I'd knock your block off," said Phalen. "If you were her husband or not, you wouldn't be able to do any such thing," replied Block. Biff! Phalen swung on Block's jaw. Crack! countered Block on Phalen's neck and the scrap was on. To add spice to the occasion, Block's wife rushed out in time to see her spouse at the bottom of the heap and crying "Blucher has arrived" hit the plumber over the head with a shovel. By-standers separated the belligerents and so the police were on the scene. The affair may come up in the courts, a call for an officer having been sent in bringing Officer Christensen on a run.

HERMAN BLUTTIG MURDER IN THE COUNTY JAIL Herman Bluttig was killed in the county jail on Tuesday by a fellow prisoner named Frank Jelinek, during a quarrel, in a very peculiar manner. The fatal blow was struck with a little stick, scarcely more than a splinter, which Jelinek had previously used to light his pipe. The splinter entered the back of the neck and then to the lungs. Bluttig died on Tuesday evening of internal hemorrhage, the chest being filled with blood. The fatal blow was struck in the morning. Both men were awaiting trial for burglary. Jelinek was one of the men implicated in breaking into Blesch's store some months ago. At least the stolen goods were found in his house. He is miserably poor and a sort of worthless fellow. Last winter he sought aid from the city and was then almost in a starving condition. He is rather a weak looking man, and it is difficult to understand how he could have struck with sufficient force to kill a man with a splinter of wood not much over one foot in length and one inch in width. Bluttig was arrested for breaking into the house of a man named Schroeder, a resident of Kiel. He was a kind of tramp and not of very strong mind. Some time ago he stood trial on a charge of having set fire to the property of Peter Hoffman of Centerville. The two men were inclined to quarrel at various times, though they never before came to blows. On this occasion Bluttig called Jelinek a vile name and approached him in a threatening manner. Jelinek claims that Bluttig was about to draw a knife and he struck in self-defense. It is certain he had no intention of killing the other. Tuesday was the day fixed for his trial for burglary. The case was in progress when Bluttig died. He was quite certain of conviction but the district attorney asked that a verdict of guilty of receiving stolen goods be rendered so that the prisoner might be kept in custody here. Bluttig was sitting up a short time before his death, and even walked about a little. His slayer is very much depressed and sits by himself the very picture of dispair. His trial for manslaughter will possibly not take place until the January term. Manitowoc Co. Chronicle (Two Rivers), June 16, 1891
