ARTHUR RAHN, MRS. SHE SAVES HER CHILD Mother Rescues her Babe from Drowning by Prompt Action LITTLE ONE NEAR TO DEATH Three-Year Old Daughter of Mrs. Arthur Rahn Falls in River - Unconscious when Taken from Water. The heroism, born of a mother's inherent love for her child, coupled with a rare presence of mind on the part of Mrs. Arthur Rahn this morning saved her three-year old daughter from death by drowning. The accident, which came so near to proving fatal to the little life, happened in the vicinity of the home on South Seventh Street and the rescue was made under circumstances that would daunt the courage of many a man. With other children of the neighborhood the little girl was playing near a creek through adjoining land into the lake, and which contained water to the depth of some five feet. In approaching the stream along the bank, the child slipped and fell into the water, and unable to save herself, and her companions being too young to appreciate the danger which threatened or to lend assistance, the little one seemed doomed to death. The shouts of the children and the excitement attracted the attention of Mrs. Rahn, who apprehending some danger, rushed to the scene and taking in the situation at a glance, unhesitatingly plunged into the water and bore the child to the bank. The babe was unconscious and although a physician was at once summoned, it was fully an hour before resuscitation was accomplished. Some fear is entertained that pneumonia may follow as a result of the icy immersion which the child was subjected to. Mrs. Rahn experienced discomfiture from her action in entering the water, and is very nervous from the agonizing suspense which she labored under during the time the child was in danger. (Note: This family lived in Calumet co., New Holstein twp in 1900/I can't find them in any Manitowoc directory) Mar. 28, 1901, Manitowoc Daily Herald

HUGO RAHN REEDSVILLE HAS WORST FIRE IN ITS HISTORY, LOSS $20,000 General Merchandise Store of Hugo Rahn Destroyed Saturday Night and Loss is Large One One of the worst fires in the history of the village of Reedsville occurred at midnight Saturday night when the general merchandise store and warehouses of Hugo Rahn were almost completely destroyed, entailing a loss estimated at from $12,000 to $20,000. The loss is practically covered by insurance. The fire was discovered at 11:30 by Engineer Birkholz of the municipal lighting and water plant who aroused Mr. Rahn and his family who occupied rooms in the second story of the store building and the family escaped from the burning building and saved their personal effects though it was impossible to remove much of the furniture. A general alarm was sounded and the entire village turned out to assist in fighting the flames which, however, were not gotten under control until three hours later. Firemen worked until 4 o'clock before it was safe to leave the ruins. Mr. Rahn had just received a large stock of fall and winter goods, said to represent an investment of nearly $5,000 which will be practically a complete loss. The goods had not been unpacked, being in the warehouse at the time of the fire. The origin of the fire is unknown. Mr. Rahn was in the store during the early evening while business was being conducted and everything was all right when he closed the place for the night. It is expected the buildings will be replaced. Aug. 13, 1917, Manitowoc Daily Herald

MOLLIE RAHR MISS RAHR NOT TO LOSE EYE AS WAS REPORTED Reports Unfounded, and Herald-News Glad To Give Real Facts of Accident Many friends of Miss Mollie Rahr will be glad to learn that the injury which she received during the play. Smiles at the Capitol theater is not as serious as first thought and that no injury to the eye was sustained. Reports today were that she had lost sight in one eye. Miss Rahr, while taking the part of the cashier at the movie when a band of cowboys came in boisterously, received the full charge of one of the blank cartridges discharged by one of the amateur actors. The latter with the rest, was supposed to shoot the weapon into the air as he had been drilled in practice, but instead discharged prematurely and the blast of powder hit Miss Rahr glancingly on the side of the face near the left eye. A physician was called and took out all the powder so that there will be little disfiguration if any and reports that Miss Rahr will lose her eye, the Herald-News is glad to report, are entirely unfounded. Of course there is no question but that the wound might have been a dangerous one. Had the charge been received full in the face the wadding of the blank pistol would have torn away part of the flesh and destroyed the optic. Miss Rahr is resting easy today and with precautions taken at once, with injection of anti-toxin and care of the physician for several hours, will come out of it nicely a fact that many will be glad to learn.

FRANK RANK PIONEER BRILLION SALOON MAN HAD IDEAS OF OWN ABOUT THE SALOON-CLOSED PLACE AT 7 Frank Rank, who For 30 Years, Closed His Saloon at 7 in the Evening, Is to Retire from Business July 1 By the retirement of Frank Rank, Sr., from the saloon business, the number of thirst parlors in Brillion will be reduced from ten to nine and will never be ten again unless the Baker law is amended as proposed in the Stemper bill now before the legislature, says the Brillion News. Mr. Rank has conducted this saloon over thirty years and many old timers will miss the genial group that usually sat under the fine large box elder tree during the summer months and discussed crops, politics and pioneering. Mr. Rank always hated a disorderly customer and would not tolerate roughhouse and loud profanity in his place. Daily at 7 o'clock pm he closed his place of business and took his mode of rest or recreation twiddling his thumbs under his pet shade tree, puttering in his garden, or doing a little reading. He had old fashioned ideas. But they were good ones. Of late his health has been of the best. Mr. Rank is custodian of the municipal funds which will help him pass the time when calls for foaming lager have ceased. June 28, 1915, Manitowoc Daily Herald

GOTTLIEB RATHS Ruinous Rain Storm. Friday night a terrible rain storm visited our city and surrounding county. In the city itself no material damage was done, but from the county several accidents are reported. A horse belonging to Gottlieb Raths, a farmer living near Neshoto, was instantly killed by lightning. The lightning entered the barn through a small hole in the roof, striking one of the two hroses standing together. The horse was insured in one of Mr. Kemper's companies. The barn of John Krueger, being on the Neshoto road, was considerably damaged by the wind. The grainary of Hy. Hoefner, in the town of Liberty, was struck by lightning. The smell of sulphur awoke the owner who found the building on fire; with the aid of his neighbors it was soon extinguished and no further damages done. Several sheep belonging to a farmer in Eaton were sent to the happy hunting grounds by the electric fluid. Other damages by the wind and freaks of lightning are reported from nearly all portions of the county, but nothing reliable can be ascertained as yet.

JOHN RAU Two Rivers' People Satisfied That John Rau, Long Missing, is Alive. IDENTITY IS ESTABLISHED San Francisco Claimant to the Name Rehearses Story of Life and Responds to All Questions. Satisfactory answers to questions submitted on the part of Mrs. Peter Rau and family to one claiming the relationship of a son, long absent from home, established beyond doubt that John Rau, who fifteen years ago departed from Two Rivers, still lives and in a few days will return to his boyhood home. When a letter was received from San Francisco recently and the writer made claim to being the boy who left Two Rivers on the stormy November night in 1885, relatives were not inclined to credit the story and immediately set about to investigate the claim made. A suspicious circumstance in connection with the case was that the writer applied for financial assistance to make the journey east. Several letters were written and money was at last forwarded to a bank at San Francisco, together with a list of questions, which the Two Rivers people insisted should be answered before the money was paid. The questions were of a character demanding personal knowledge of the early life of Rau and could be answered only by one acquainted with the circumstances surrounding his boyhood. When the test was put in operation, upon the writer of the letters applying for the money, the replies given were such as to establish his identity as Rau and he was given the money. It is expected that he is now enroute home and his coming is anxiously awaited by mother and brothers. Mar. 29, 1901, Manitowoc Daily Herald ********** John Rau, Missing Two Rivers Boy, Apparantly (sic) In No Haste To Return HE HAS AGAIN DISAPPEARED. Obtains Money Forwarded at San Fransisco and No More is Heard of Him - Where is He? Fifteen years absence has evidently not brought to John Rau that longing for home and its kindred associations that he would have his relatives believe, for despite the assistance given him and the assurance of welcome, by lingers away and is apparently loath to return to Two Rivers, the scene of his early childhood. Since he claimed the money forwarded him at San Francisco, no word has been received from Rau and he has disappeared as completely as he did fifteen years ago. Relatives are confident that the claim to the identity of the missing son is genuine and are at a loss to explain the actions that now characterize his movements. There is no means of locating his whereabouts and the belief is gradually gaining ground at Two Rivers that Rau has no intention of returning at the time he made known the fact of his existence. While this may not be the case, indications point to the truth of it and many accept it. It is barely possible that circumstances have delayed the journey and upon this relatives still build a hope that the missing one will return. Apr. 12, 1901, Manitowoc Daily Herald ********** GREED LEADS TO DISCOVERY Fraud Perpetrated on Rau Family of Two Rivers Is Revealed A greed that was not satisfied with a harvest of easy money secured in successful operation of a confidence game, may lead to the arrest of a San Francisco man, who clothed in the identity of one whom is believed long been dead, imposed upon the Rau family of Two Rivers. Several months ago a letter was received by the Rau family, purporting to have been written by John Rau, who, sixteen years ago disappeared from his home in Two Rivers. The writer told of his life as a sailor in foreign lands and of his service in the navy and expressed a desire to return to the scene of his childhood home providing he was given money to make the journey and assured of a welcome. The conditions were supplied and the visit of the long absent one anxiously awaited. Time passed, and brought - not the relative, but another request for funds, which aroused suspicion and led to an investigation being made into the claims of the writer of the letters. The result was satisfactory as the party was thoroughly acquainted with the early life of the one who he represented himself to be. The second remittance was forwarded and again the anxious waiting was gone through. A third request or money convinced the Two Rivers family that the representations made were false and the aid of the San Francisco police was invoked to discover the identity of the operator of the scheme, which was evidently a game to secure money. The report of the police investigation is that the party claiming to be John Rau, was known by another name in San Francisco - a name that is recognized by Two Rivers people as that of a former schoolmate of Rau's, who has been absent for years. The man could not be located, having evidently decided that his safety would be secure only by flight, since suspicion had been aroused. Had the third request for money, not been made, it is probable that there would have been no investigation. The sum secured by the game was $75, $50 having been sent at the first request and $25 on the second. The name of the San Francisco man is withheld from the public in consideration of the feelings of relatives, residents of both Manitowoc and Two Rivers.

GEORGE READ Still another loss to the school fund arose from the repeated violation of the laws prohibiting the sale of forfeited lands at less than their original sale price. The case of George Read, of Manitowoc County, affords an instance. In 1854 he forfeited fifty-two lots and later repurchased them at $50 each. Some of these lots had originally cost him $60. A great fraud was perpetrated on the general public and on the school fund by the many violations of the law of 1855 providing that no person should at any sale of such lands purchase more than 160 acres of school or university lands. This violation was accomplished in many cases by the use of fictitious names, the subsequent forfeiture of bids, and then purchase by application, which was allowable in cases of forfeited lands. The law was also openly violated. Another way of circumventing the law was by offering the forfeited lands at auction so early the next morning that bona-fide purchasers had no opportunity to bid. published 1908 Page 60 "The Financial History of Wisconsin" by Raymond Vincent Phelan

Reed got a "jag" this morning and while in McCully's saloon, got a little excited. He got tangled up and was ejected from the place by William Post. As a little revenge and just for the fun Reed threw a four pound rock through the window, completely demolishing it and creating havoc inside of the room. He then made his escape and has not yet been apprehended. The damage is $10.00. May 20, 1899, Manitowoc Daily Herald

ED REINDL Two Men Near Death As Car Is Turned Over CAR LEAVES ROAD ON 141, IS OVERTURNED Ed. Reindl and Paul Prowl Have Miraculous Escape From Death Two Manitowoc men, thrown out of an overturned car on Highway 141, about one half mile south of the junction of highways 31 and 141 at about 8 o'clock last night are under care of physicians today following a most miraculous escape from death or far more serious injuries than they received. Thumb Torn Off. Paul Prowl, 2610 Meadow Lane, passenger in the machine which overturned had the thumb of his right hand torn off and two other fingers are so severely lacerated that it may be necessary to amputate in order to save the hand. His back is also injured and he has severe bruises but it is believed that he escaped internal injuries. He is still confined to the hospital. Ed. Reindl, 936 North Fifteenth street meat market proprietor, driver and owner of the car, is expected to be able to retain his left ear following its being sewed in place after it was nearly severed from his head. When he arrived at the office of his attending physician, the ear was hanging by little more than a shred. A deep gash in his left cheek exposed the bone of the left jaw and he was otherwise seriously bruised. Suffer Blood Loss. Both men were in extremely weakened condition because of excessive loss of blood but this is expected to have no serious results. Both are resting easily today, Reindl at his home where he was taken this morning. Accident Theory. One of the theories of the accident is that Prowl seated next to Reindl, grabbed the steering wheel in the belief that Reindl was in danger of going into the ditch when a passing car or truck crowded them on the side of the road. The machine, a late model Willys-Knight touring car was steered across the highway to the left side of the road, went into a five foot ditch and skimmed along that for a distance before it struck a fence post and it overturned. The machine was badly damaged. The two men were reported to have been at Sheboygan and were on their way to Manitowoc at the time of the mishap. Prowl employed on the night shift of the cement plant, was to have been at work at 11 o'clock last night and it was for that purpose that the men were returning. Herbert Zannacker, one of the first to reach the scene of the accident, found Prowl a considerable distance from the car in a field, almost overcome by exhaustion, the man, in his maddening pain having started to run from the scene. Mr. Zannacker drove to a nearby telephone and summoned Dr. F.W. Hammond to care for Prowl while Reindl was brought to the city by another car.

JOHN REINDL BULLET IN HEAD John Reindl Tries Suicide at Two Rivers But Fails in Attempt Family troubles, coupled with the effect of a debauch, led John Reindl, a Two Rivers man, to attempt suicide Saturday by bring (sic) a bullet into his head, but the deed has not yet accomplished its purpose as Reindl is still alive. The affair happened early Saturday morning, following a quarrel which Reindl had with his wife the night previous, and early reports gave rise to a story that the case was an attempt at murder. Dist. Atty. Hougen, who investigated the matter, however, expresses the opinion that the wound was self inflected by Reindl, who has been brought to the hospital here. It is thought that he will live.

MR. REINHARDT A man by the name of Reinhardt living on the Calumet road last week, attempted to commit suicide by cutting his throat. His failure was due to the want of knowledge of anatomy as he cut an ugly gash on the back of his neck which if it had been placed over the jugular vein would undoubtedly have ended his life. Depression on account of financial difficulties is said to be the reason he desires to escape this world. Manitowoc Lake Shore Times, Tuesday, January 13, 1885 P.4

MELVIN REINHARDT ALL IN A DAY'S WORK SAYS LIFE GUARD RESCUER Second Boy Saved From Drowning At North Side Beach By Reinhardt Declaring that it was "only in connection with the work I am hired to do," Melvin Reinhardt, youthful life guard, employed by the city at the northside bathing beach, refused to give any details regarding a rescue he made at the beach yesterday. A nine year old boy, playing on the pier contrary to signs posted, fell into the lake and had gone down twice when the life guard went to his rescue and dove into the water to pull him to safety. One Rescue Previously. Like an occasion last week when Reinhardt and a companion went out into the harbor basin to rescue two young boys who were drifting out into the lake on a raft, details regarding the rescue were refused. The life guard declared there wasn't any reason for a fuss and it sounded like bragging. Parents Make It Hard. Superintendent of Parks Edward Pasewalk said that beach conditions here were made more difficult because children refused to obey regulations and said that demands that they be enforced on the part of the lifeguards had resulted in parents berating guards at the beaches. The regulations are made for the safety of the youngsters and will be carried out, Pasewalk declared. Manitowoc Herald News, Friday, August 10, 1928 Page 1

B. REINKEN Thieves Caught. Six or seven weeks ago we chronicled several cases of thieving as having occurred one Sunday in the early part of the month of November. Among the sufferers was B. Reinken, who has a store and cigar factory, corner of 8th and Quay streets. Last Monday Mr. Reinken having obtained what he thought sufficient evidence for the purpose, swore out a warrant against two hoble-de-hoys, named respectively Aug. Owert and Carl Damrow. The two boys were arrested and brought before Justice Zinns. When brought up they both plead guilty to the charge of burglary. The manner in which they gained access to the premises was by breaking out a glass in the cellar window, removing the fastenings and entering the house. The boys in talking with their companions bragged of their exploit, and so the matter leaked out, leading to their detection. The amount stolen was about $12.50 first cost, and being within the jurisdiction of a justice of the peace, Mr. Zinns sent the boys to jail for three months. They are about 17 and 19 years old respectively. It is to be hoped that other parties having committed depredations can be caught and punished. Dec. 24, 1874, Manitowoc Tribune

FRANK REMIKER FRANKLIN GIRL, JILTED, ASKS FOR $5000 HEART BALM MARY WILHELM, 27, SUES FRANK REMIKER, 45, FOR BREACH OF PROMISE TO MARRY Five thousand dollars is the valuation which Mary Wilhelm a town of Franklin girl, places upon her affections in a suit instituted today against Frank Remiker, a wealthy farmer of the same town who is alleged by the girl to have failed to fulfill a promise made to wed her. Papers in the action, alleging breach of promise, were filed in circuit court and the case will come up at the June term next week. In her complaint Miss Wilhelm, who is 27, says that she was engaged to Remiker, but that the wedding date was deferred from time to time by the defendant and that he has now refused to marry her and she asks the court to award her judgment in the sum of $5000 for her blighted hopes. Remiker is a prominent farmer of Franklin and a bachelor, aged 43. It is alleged by the plaintiff that she became engaged to him nearly three years ago and fully expected to be his wife and had prepared for the marriage but that Remiker postponed the event from time to time until last fall when following the birth of a child, he refused to fulfill his alleged promise and has continued in that refusal. The action is the first breach of promise suit instituted in the Manitowoc county courts in several years and will attract considerable interest, both parties being well known in the section in which they reside. The plaintiff is the daughter of a well known farmer of the town. Atty. A. P. Schenlan appears for Miss Wilhelm and Atty. Isaac Craite for the defendant.

MR. RESEBURG Kiel news: Mr. Reseburg's saw mill caught fire and would have been destroyed had not some one discovered the flames before much damage was done. Manitowoc Lake Shore Times, Tuesday, May 12, 1885 P.4

WILHELM RESEBURG It is reported from Kiel that 13-yr. old Wilhelm Reseburg there, a son of the late Wm. C. Reseburg, recently became a hero by saving the lives of three other children. Norma Ammann, also 13, her sister Vera age 9, and little Lester Meiselwitz age 3, were playing in a skiff in the river. The river there runs by the residence of the two girls' father. The skiff broke loose and before the children noticed, was going down the middle of the river.

WILLIAM H. ROBINSON FARMER THROWN FROM WAGON MAY BE FATALLY HURT WILLIAM ROBINSON, ROUTE 7, NEAR DEATH'S DOOR AS RESULT OF INJURIES IN RUNAWAY ACCIDENT SATURDAY NIGHT Thrown from his wagon when his team became unmanageable and ran away Saturday night, William H. Robinson, a prominent farmer residing on Rural route No. 7 from this city, sustained injuries from which he may not recover. While Mr. Robinson today showed some improvement he is in a precarious condition. Mr. Robinson sustained the fracture of two ribs, had his leg broken and his body severely bruised in the accident which happened while he was en route to the city with a load of grain. The team, which was a young one, took fright and in a mad dash became unmanageable and Mr. Robinson was thrown from the wagon into the roadway. He was picked up unconscious and taken to his home. Owing to the fact that the team in its flight collided with a telephone pole, breaking the wires it was impossible to get into communication with the city from the Robinson farm and a call was dispatched to Mishicot for a physician. Mr. Robinson was made as easy as possible in the meantime but was suffering greatly. His injuries were attended by the physician and reports today say that his condition is as favorable as could be expected but that he is not out of danger. It is said that Mr. Robinson did not sustain internal injuries aside from the fractured ribs. Mr. Robinson is 55 years of age and is well known in the city and county. He is a cousin to Thomas Robinson of this city. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Tuesday, November 16, 1915, Page 1 ******** Mr. and Mrs. William H.

LOUIS ROD WILL TAKE A REST. Louis Rod Gets Sixty Days In County Jail For a Jag. Louis Rod, who makes his home with the family of John Espen on Franklin street, will spend sixty days at the county jail in payment as the result of a little misunderstanding he had Tuesday evening. Louis is of a happy-go-lucky disposition and when he gets on the outside of a few beers it is almost impossible for him to restrain his joy. Tuesday evening he was about town with the boys and he went just a "few." He returned to his boarding place rather late in the evening and became quite hilarious. He danced, sang and in fact did most everything that could be imagined. The songs he warbled didn't suit Mr. Espen and he requested him to "dry up." This was more than Louis could stand and he made a pass at John, and a fight was the result. A warrant was sworn out for his arrest on a charge of asault and battery and he was brought before Judge Craite yesterday afternoon, found guilty and in default of money to pay a fine, he was sentenced to "do" sixty days time.

CARL ROESER, SR. The following taken from the Sunday Telegraph of last week, will be interesting reading for many of our citizens: Carl Roeser, Sr. went to Wisconsin in 1850; was engaged in editing a Free Soil paper, the Anzeiger, (Advertiser) published at Oshkosh until late in 1853. Early in 1854 he went to Manitowoc and there began publishing and editing the Wisconsin Democrat, a German paper, in support of the Free Soil party. In July, 1854, Mr. Roeser participated in the State Mass Convention at Madison in which the Republican party was born and baptized, and his paper thenceforth advocated the principles of the new party, it being the first German paper in the Union to do so. In 1855 he was the Rpublican nominee for state treasurer. Mr. Roeser has been here since 1861, most of the time employed in the third auditor's office, where he is now located.

CHARLES ROSE Under Sheriff Edwards arrested Chas. H. Rose charged with robbing the letters and till of the Post office in this village, of which he has been Distributing Clerk. He was yesterday examined before Justice Waldo and held to bail in the sum of $2,000. July 10, 1858 P. 3, The Daily Tribune ********* THE POST OFFICE ROBBERY. We mentioned in Saturday's paper the arrest of a clerk in the Manitowoc Post Office on a charge of robbing the letters which passed through the office. Mr. Wittman has furnished us with the following statement in reference to the affair, which we publish for the information of those interested. It seems that only registered letters were robbed, unless there were some other means of ascertaining that money was sent in them, another proof that the present system of registering is merely a nice little plan for showing a thief where to find the money. It seems that Mr. Wittman, P.M. having occasion to make out his report to the Department, on Saturday July 3d, was in the act of throwing the concept into the stove, when he discovered two packages of the New York Staats Zeitung ready to be consumed. Mr. W. attributed this act to carelessness, or want of inclination or time to distribute them on the part of Rose, and discharged him forthwith. But immediately upon his discharge, Mr. Jacob Stephani, who lives six or seven miles in the country, heard of it, and hurried to town to find Mr. Wittman, to whom he related the following facts: On the 15th of December, Mr. S. had mailed a registered letter containing $11, to Wolf River, Kewaunee Co., which Rose entered on the Register book as usual. Mr. S. shortly after received a letter from Wolf River saying, that his letter had not been received and immediately went to Rose, who said the letter had certainly been sent, but he would write on to the P.M. at Wolf River and see about it, although he had no business to conduct any correspondence connected with the Post Office business, and contrary to Mr. Wittman's repeated instructions, who alone attends to the correspondence. Mr. S. again called on Rose, and this time told him he should see Mr. W. in relation to his letter and money. Rose objected to this, and told Mr. S. that he (Wittman) would be angry, &c., and finally said he would pay him the money out of his own pocket, and on the next Sunday, did pay him $6.00 of it. On examining the books, Mr. W. Found that Rose had marked an "R" on the margin, indicating that the letter had been "received," at its destination, although the letter never left this place, as the postmaster at Wolf Rivers says he never received it, and other circumstances prove his statement. This is only one case in many. A poor woman, whose husband is in Milwaukee, laboring by the day, and has been in the habit of sending home three dollars a week to support his family, is among the sufferers, the letters being deprived of part of the contents in this post-office. Mr. Richter, wishing to send home the daguerrotype of his family, over a year ago, gave them to Rose to forward them to Germany. Rose stopped the correspondence between Mr. Richter and his father, averring all the time that the daguerrotypes had been sent, but finally handed them back to Mr. R. a week or two ago in the same condition they were in when given to him to forward to Germany. Mr. Wittman showed us several statements, of different persons who had lost money and drafts, which were sent in registered letters, and which were undoubtedly abstracted by Rose. The amount stolen is not known although several of our citizens are losers by his dishonesty. Rose will be taken to Milwaukee, and tried before a Commissioner appointed by the Department for that purpose. The Daily Tribune, Tuesday, July 13, 1858 P. 2 ******** UNITED STATES versus CARL ROSE.- Carl Rose, a German, recently a clerk in the Post Office at Manitowoc, was this morning examined before Judge Miller, on a charge of destroying a package of newspapers, and embezzling letters containing money. After hearing the testimony, the judge bound him over in the sum of $2,000 to appear at the January term of the U.S. District Court. Hon. Isaac H. Parrish, of the firm of Parrish & Bradley, appeared as counsel for the prisoner.-Wisconsin, 14th. July 19, 1858 P. 3, The Daily Tribune ********* Deputy Marsahl B.J.

ISADORE ROUSSE Two Rivers section: FIREMEN UNEARTH 100 GALLON STILL AT SOUTH SIDE FIRE BASEMENT OF ROUSSE HOME A DISTILLERY Owner Frantically Working to Put Out Flames As Firemen Arrive- Faces Prosecution When firemen responded to a south side call Sunday morning at nine o'clock at the home of Isadore Rousse, 2504 Thirteenth street, they found Rousse working frantically in a secret compartment of his basement, trying to extinguish a fire that started from a defective 100 gallon still and which he hoped to prevent the firemen from unearthing. In so doing, he was quite badly burned about the face, arms and chest and is under the care of a physician today. Police Chief Schroeder and his men as a result of the fire discovered one of the largest whiskey stills that they have dug up since the Volsteadt law went into effect and also gathered in some 13 gallons of liquor. However one ten gallon keg disappeared. While they were loading the liquor on to a truck of the street commission following the putting out of the fire, some thirsty bystanders made way with a ten galllon keg and a further search of the vicinity failed to locate it. To Prosecute Rousse. Rousse, who in addition to suffering severe burns, also had a badly sprained ankle, will be prosecuted on a charge of manufacturing moonshine. He may be brought up late today or if his burns are too severe he will be allowed to remain at home until it is possible for him to appear before Justice Larkin. The still was removed from the basement together with all the coils and the other apparatus and brought to the basement of the fire station for evidence. The ten gallon keg as well as three gallon glass containers, all filled, were brought in the police station and locked up. The alarm of fire was sent in by neighbors shortly after nine o'clock Sunday morning, when they noticed smoke pouring from the Rousse home. The still was located in a secret basement compartment with but one entrance by a cleverly concealed window let down by a secret trap from the inside. This trap was sprung by means of a rope concealed in a corner and the location of which was known only to Rousse. It was a certainty that no federal agent would have discovered the location of the still. Denies Selling Stuff. The still proper was shaped like a small cheese vat and was made of copper. It was so constructed that it could not be cleaned and so the brand of moonshine would hardly be of the best. When questioned by the police Rousse denied having sold any of the liquor as yet. He said that this was the third batch he had made. He heated the still by means of a five burner gasoline stove. Both Rousse and his wife work during the week. They have four children. Sunday he works at his still. Earlier in the morning he had gone to the basement and started the still operating and then gone upstairs for breakfast. During this time the woodwork caught fire and when Rousse went back to work he found the flames beyond his control. The neighbors summoned the firemen and when they got there they found Rousse making a valiant effort to put out the fire before they arrived. He realized that his secret would be discovered as soon as the firemen entered the secret basement compartment. Police Are Called. When the flames were controlled the police were summoned and took charge of the still and the moonshine stored in the basement. It was while moving it to the police station that one of the two ten gallon casks mysteriously disappeared. It is probably stored in some south side cellar by this time. The still in the basement of the fire station was the magnet that attracted large crowds to view the contraption. Rousse insisted that he had not sold any of the manufactured liquor. The fire loss Sunday was small. Manitowoc Herald News, Monday, April 16, 1928 Page 11
