IN MEMORIAL - ANNA A. SLAWSON

Brief notice was given Monday of the death of Miss Anna A. Slawson at the home of her neice, Mrs. E.R. Dickerson, in Hampton, Iowa. her death took place at noon on that day.

It becomes a duty at this time to note in fuller detail the passing of a pioneer of Waukesha whose life was one of real service; one worthy to be emulated and honored.

Miss Slawson was a native of Orange County, New York, and the date of her birth is given as of February 25, 1843, her parents being Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Slawson, who moved to Waukesha in 1847.

the family traveled via the Erie canal and the Great lakes, and even at the tender age of 4 years the journey westward with its new and strange scenes and experiences made a deep impression upon her mind. Of these, she in later years spoke most interestingly.

Her school days here evidently were filled with interest and pleasures and made lasting impressions since it is doubtful if in recent years there was any other person who could recall so vividly and entertainingly, the passing events of pioneer days and the incidents related to the pioneer citizens whose comings and goings made up the activities of Waukesha.

In relating these she gave much pleasure beside imparting much valuable information to her friends.

At the close of her school days here, Miss Slawson visited for a year or more in the home of her sister and husband, Mr. and Mrs. S.G. Curtis, in Jamestown, New York, and there she took up the duty of a teacher.

Returning to Waukesha subsequently she taught school in Waukesha and in the vicinity for more than a dozen years, thereafter becoming a teacher in Milwaukee.

Her services in the schools there covered a periond of forty-four years, after which she retired on pension, following a record as a teacher of fully fifty-eight years.

Thousands of pupils during this period received the benefit of her tutelage and it may be said with euqal truthfulness that many of these owed to her a lasting debt of gratitude.

Miss Slawson always indicated an intelligent and commendable interest in the affairs of this city and its people and aided in promoting those things that made for the community good.

She wrote with much facility and vividness of things historical and has contributed chapters of this nature that add materially to the annals of city and county. She was a lover of books, a wide reader, and wrote both poetry and prose with a facility and elegance that gave pleasure to many.

Miss Slawson leaves surviving her two nephews, Frederick Curtis and Charles A. Slawson, and two nieces, Mrs. Nellie Slawson Dickerson, and Miss Bertha Curtis, of California. Three brothers and a sister beside the parents preceded her in death, vix., Mrs. Frances Curtis, Charles, Eugene and Frederick M. Slawson.

The remains will be bought to Waukesha Wednesday noon and interment will be at Prairie Home cemetery Thursday. Services will be held at Caspar's funeral home, 204 Main Street, at 3 o'clock p.m.

DEATHS

SLAWSON - Frederic Fitch Slawson, for more than half a century a prominent resident of Waukesha, died at his home on Broadway, Jan. 13, after a long illness, aged 82 years. He was born in Orange County, New York, in April 1817. His ancestors were among the pioneers of Connecticut, settling at Stanford in 1634. He spent his boyhood and youth in the vicinity of the noble Hudson River. In 1837, he married at Newburgh, New York to Sarah J. Lockwood. In 1840, he came to Wisconsin on a tour of inspection with the view of making the west his home. In 1847, he arrived with his family at Waukesha, then Prairieville, and for many years was closely identified with the growth of the village and well known to many old settlers all over the county. he served on the village board, and also held the office of town and village treasurer. He became an Odd Fellow in the early fifties, being one of the first to unite with that order and probably a charter member. As long as he was able to attend the meetings of Prairie Lodge he delighted to do so. he is survived by his wife and two children, F.M. Slawson of this city and Miss A. A. Slawson of Milwaukee. A daughter, Mrs. S.G. Curtis, died in '93, his son, Eugene, in 1896. His eldest son, Capt. Chas. B. Slawson, served with distinction in the 28th Wisconsin during the civil war and died in St. Paul in 1879.
Funeral services for Mr. Slawson were held at the house Tuesday afternoon, conducted by Rev. I.L. Cory. A quartette, Messrs. Hayes, Gaul, Thompson and Trakel, sang. Interment was in Prairie Home cemetery.
In Mr. Slawson's death, Waukesha loses another of its honored pioneers, an honest genial, kind=hearted man, who had few enemies and many friends.

DEATH OF CHAS. SLAWSON

A Bright Young Life Cut Short by Suicide.

On last Friday morning Waukesha was thrilled by the news that Mr. Charles Slawson, son of Mr. F. M. Slawson of this place, had committed suicide by shooting himself on a street of the city of St. Paul, where he was a resident, being foreman of the painting department in the railroad car shops. "Charley" was well known and highly esteemed by everybody here, and his death is deeply lamented by his friends at home. The body arrived at Waukesha on Saturday afternoon and the funeral took place on Sunday at his father's house, under conduct of Rev. C. W. Camp. We take the following account of the Coroner's inquest from the St. Paul "Pioneer Press" of last Saturday.

Yesterday's developments added nothing material to the very extended account of the "Pioneer Press" of the Slawson suicide, and what did develop only verified it at all points. Precisely at 10 a.m. Coroner Stein commenced the inquest at the house, 79 Mississippi street, where the deceased had resided. The cottage is very pleasingly and comfortably furnished, and betokens in all its surroundings, a pleasant home.

THE CORONER OPENED HIS COURT
in the front room by impaneling the following as jurors: H.B. Larson, O. Larson, Joseph Gehr, E.M. Raymond, Alexander Johnson, and W.H. Monk. In the center of the floor of the apartment stood an ice casket, with some simple flowers upon it, in which the mortal remains of the once cheerful and respected Charles B. Slawson were lying. The lid covering the face of the body was opened by the coroner that the jury might view it, and was then closed, there being no necessity for a more minute inspection. The countenance was remarkably placid, the somewhat handsome features being entirely unmarred by any distortion, while the fatal wound, being at the back of the head, was completely hidden from sight, so that there was no visible reminder of his untimely and unseemly taking off. The front room connected by folding doors with another to its rear, and the latter with one to its east, and from the last there proceeded during the whole time the inquest was being held, the irrepressible sobs and moans of the suddenly-widowed and anguish-stricken wife.

GUSTAVE JOHNSON
was the first witness sworn, and testified that shortly after 4 o'clock on Thursday afternoon he was at work on the premises of Mr. S.S. Eaton, on the south-east corner of Wacouta and Ninth streets, where he is employed. he saw the deceased come down Ninth street, turn up Wacouta street and sit down upon the steps of the First Baptist church, after which the witness ceased to observe him. in a very few minutes Johnson heard the report of the shot in the direction of the church, toward which the witness turned and saw the deceased rolling over upon his right side upon the steps, but Johnson neither saw the shot actually fired nor the pistol in the hands of Slawson, and there was no one standing near the latter. Johnson immediately ran to the spot, arriving simultaneously with the two others. The pistol was t the feet of the wounded man, who never spoke at that time.

DR. J. STEELE,
the next witness, said he was, on the day and hour indicated, reading at his window in his residence, 127 East Tenth street, which is about in the direct rear of the First Baptist church, when he heard the report of a fire-arm, and thought it must be some one discharging gun preparatory to chicken hunting the next day. he took no notice of the fact until he was summoned about two minutes after by a girl, who informed him that a man had shot himself on the church steps. Thither he immediately proceeded and found the deceased rolled over upon his right side upon the first step. Under one of his feet was a revolver, near which was his right hand, the arm being extended. The man was speechless and paid no attention to the physician's inquiries, and he never afterward rallied. The witness probed the wound to about the length of an ordinary pencil, but did not find the bullet, which had probably expended itself on the opposite side of the brain. The wound was straight and clean, and the witness, of course, was satisfied it had caused death. After giving a description of the revolver - exactly corresponding with that of yesterday's "Pioneer Press" - the witness produced the straw hat worn by the deceased. the brim was burnt on the under side near the part which would be over the right ear when on the head, and the inside edge and leather lining were pierced, evidently by the ball, as if the rim had been bent upward when the shot was fired.

MRS. SLAWSON WAS THEN LED IN
by her sister, Mrs. E. Sanford Blake, and took the witness chair. She is a good looking woman, even though her features yesterday betrayed extreme anguish, and her condition bordered upon the hysterical. Her well-rounded figure rises to a little over the medium stature, and her entire presence was prepossessing, apart from the interest attaching to her as the nearest to the dead central figure in the ice chest. Overcoming her choking sobs she said her husband's name was Charles B. Slawson - she spelt the name as here given - and that her own was Mary, and the following conversation ensued between her and the coroner, who acted with great delicacy and courtesy:

"Had you and your husband any trouble?"
"My husband and I never had any trouble," she wailed, rather than spoke, and then broke down into a passionate and uncontrollable fit of weeping and sobbing that was heartrending to hear and witness. She at length became calmer under the soothings of her sister.
"Do you know of any cause for the act?"
"Oh, no! I do not," she moaned, and sank back into her sister's embrace, and was again assuaged.
"Did he ever threaten to commit suicide?"
"Never - only once that looked like it. He used to be dreadfully troubled with neuralgia, and when he was suffering once, he said, "I feel such a pain in the spot that I feel as if I could put a hole through it.'"
Continuing, in answer to various inquiries, and in a more tranquil mood, she narrated that on Wednesday night he had been sleepless and restless from sickness, but he slept for four hours during Thursday, and arose feeling much refreshed and better. he had been troubled for some days with his feet, which had been much swollen, and as he pulled on his boots, he expressed his satisfaction at the swelling having abated. He left the house between two and three o'clock on thursday afternoon, with the intention as he said, of paying his monthly bills, he having received his pay on Wednesday. Mrs. Slawson was then supported out of the room, but never ceased her lamentations.

THE VERDICT
of the jury was speedily arrived at, and was as follows: "That the deceased came to his death by means of a pistol shot fired by his own hand on the 14th day of August, 1879, between the hours of 4 and 5 o'clock, p.m." This closed the coroner's inquest, but the representative of the "Pioneer Press" continued his, and with this intention, lingered in the room, after the coroner and his attendants had departed. Two ladies were in the house,

MRS. H.S. POMEROY AND MRS. E. SANFORD BLAKE,
who were willing participants in an interview. Mrs. Blake is, as above stated, a sister of Mrs. Slawson, and both were especially desirous of having it stated that there was no trouble in the Slawson household. Mr. and Mrs. Slawson were married thirteen years ago near Sparta, Wis., and their married life had been one of extreme happiness throughout that period. As an evidence of this it was averred that at one time, it was Mrs. Slawson's intention to have visited to the home of her parents in Wisconsin, but had foregone that pleasure most cheerfully on account of an attack of sickness prostrating her husband. Mrs. HS. Pomeroy - she was particular regarding the initials - had known then in Milwaukee before their marriage and was quite conclusive in her statements respecting the felicity in the Slawson family, of which she spoke as one having witnessed it since their arrival in St. Paul. "Mrs. Slawson," said she, "has trouble enough without mixing up slanders with it." Both agreed further in averring the only shadow that ever crossed the threshold was the occasional fits of intemperance to which Slawson was addicted. One trifling additional fact was obtained from the widow though Mrs. Blake. The deceased had "laid off" for two days previous to his payment on Wednesday.

BIOGRAPHICAL
The unfortunate Charles B. Slawson was a native of Orange County, New York, whence he removed with his parents, who survive him, to Waukesha, Wis. He continued his residence in that state until six years ago, when he came to St. Paul, having in 1866 married near Sparta, Wis. On his arrival here he immediately obtained employment in the then St. Paul & Pacific railroad shops as a painter, and served as a journeyman for one year. Being an adept at his business he was then promoted to the foremanship of the painting department, and retained that position to the day of his suicide. Whatever may have been his failings, he gained and held the universal esteem of all who knew him. He was quite an active politician, and wielded considerable influence, especially among his fellow workman in the car-shops. Although entertaining strong Republican convictions, he was independent enough to advocate and support the candidacy of men of opposite political views to his own when convinced of their integrity and fitness for official station. He was especially esteemed by the Druids, in which order he held high rank, being the district deputy grand arch of Marco Bonzaris grove, No. 10, of St. Paul. Mr. Slawson died poor, and left no will or other document for posthumous perusal. He was, however, insured for $1,000 in the Druids, and the only money he was known to possess at the time of his death was $15.85 in his pockets.
The deceased, before shooting himself, as traced yesterday by the reporter, seems to have left Hanft's barber shop by Broadway to Seventh street, passing west along the latter. he was noticed by Mr. Millham, newsdealer, 163 East Seventh street, going up that thoroughfare at an unusually rapid rate, and with his face slightly flushed. At the coroner of Sibley and Seventh he entered the store of J.G. Taylor, where he

BORROWED THE PISTOL
with which he shot himself. Mr. Taylor was not in at the time, but his clerk, A.M. Waite, was there. Slawson asked for the loan of a revolver, requesting the one he had borrowed some months ago, when as he then stated he was going on St. Anthony Hill and wanted it in case of an emergency. he was informed that pistol was at Mr. Taylor's house, but that Mrs. Taylor would give it to him. He objected to ask her for it as he was a stranger, and the clerk, knowing him well, and that he had borrowed the firearm before, loaded up the "Conqueror" revolver with five short, thirty-two calibre cartridges, although the pistol was adapted to long ones. Thus charged, the weapon was handed to Slawson, who evinced no excitement or intoxication. A few doors above, he visited J.F. Pannell's store, and paid there some borrowed money. Mr. Pannell though Slawson excited, or as if he was just getting over a spree and asked what was the matter, to which Slawson answered he had been unwell. Thence he went to Manning's, as detailed yesterday, and thence to the church steps and to his death.

THE OBSEQUIES
were in charge of the Druids, Mr. Charles C. Wilson, the secretary of the deceased's grove, having special personal superintendence of them. At seven o'clock in the evening of yesterday, quite a gathering assembled at the house, where Chaplain Robert Smith conducted a simply service of touching prayer. The body was enclosed in an elegant silver- mounted rosewood casket, which was decked with flowers. The Druids provided this handsome last tenement, as well as provided for the widow's transportation to Waukesha, Wis., and return, and that of the body to the same place. She was also advanced money from the same charitable source. In fact, though under the rules of the order they were only required to furnish $50 for funeral expenses, the Druids far exceeded, and simply did all things well. The following brethren of the association acted as pallbearers: W.P. Murray, C.M. Bell, james C. Morrison, Chas. N. Parker, Jr., E.P. Basford and R.J. Thomas. The body was conveyed to the depot of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad and left on the 8:05 p.m. train for Waukesha, accompanied by the widow and a brother of the deceased, who had arrived by the noon train yesterday.

9360 We learn from the annals of Dorchester, Mass., that William Phelps, the emigrant ancestor of the Phelps family of New England, came to this country in the good ship 'Mary and John' in 1630, with one hundred and forty passengers; most of them were constituent members of the church formed in Plymouth, England, in 1629. On reaching this country they transplated their church in Dorchester in 1630, where they continued to reside until 1635, when the Rev. John Warham and a large majority of the church migrated overland to the Connecticut River, and formed the town of Windsor, in Connecticut, and transplated their church there. Mr. Phelps and wife were prominently active, not only in reorganizing the church, but also in establishing a social centre for their new town.

9381 Wenceslaus succeeded his father in both roles: Charles IV had been elected Holy Roman King and, in the course of things, crowned Holy Roman Emperor under the auspices of Avignon Pope Innocent VI; however, Wenceslaus never received the imperial coronation, but was deposed; the Bohemian title came to Wenceslaus by inheritance as Charles's son.

Accusing Wenceslaus of devoting far more attention to his Bohemian than to his German duties, and of weakness in agreeing with Charles VI of France to end their support of rival Popes, the princes of the German states deposed him as King in August 1400 in favour of Rupert III, Count palatine of the Rhine, though Wenceslaus refused to acknowledge this successor's decade-long reign.

As King Wenceslaus IV of Bohemia, until his death in 1419, he came into repeated conflict with the Bohemian nobility, and sought to protect the religious reformer Jan Hus and his followers against the demands of the Roman Catholic Church for their suppression as heretics. This caused many Germans to leave the University of Prague, and set up their own University at Leipzig. Hus was executed in Konstanz in 1415, and the rest of Wenceslaus's reign in Bohemia featured precursors of the Hussite Wars that would follow his death.

He was the one who had "Saint" John of Nepomuk(Actually named Jan z Pomuka - John of Pomuk) tortured and put to death, allegedly because he was not willing to reveal the confessional secrets learned from king's wife Sofia of Bavaria as the popular Roman Catholic legend goes. In reality John of Pomuk was an notary in the consistory of Archbishop of Prague John of Jen?tejn, and was killed as a result of the property dispute and long personality conflict between the king and the fanatical archbishop.

9392 When a boy of twelve he walked from his father's home at Round Hills to Boston to ship for a voyage at sea. For many years he engaged in the West Indies trade, and sailed from Boston and New Bedford in command of merchant vessels. He was managing owner of a number of sloops, some of which were commanded by his younger brother, Captain John H. Howland. Old ship's papers show that on Dec 31, 1795, his sloop, the Goodintent, sailded from New Bedford with the following cargo: "36 boxes spermiciti candles, 50 barrels flour, 3 barrels rye flour, 45 bushels potatoes, 50 turkeys, 13 barrels ship bread, 4 boxes tallow candles, 60 barrels whale oil, 4 earth closets, wine, and 607 lbs. cheese."

Captain John H. Howland was master of the Goodintent, and his accounting states that the net proceeds of the sale of the whale oil were eight hundred ninety-one pounds, eight shillings, seven pence. In 1799 Captain Joseph sent out his brother in command of sloop Franklin with a cargo of flour for Kingston, Jamaica, to be sold at two dollars a barrel, and giving him orders to return with a shipment of sugar. During the War of 1812, the Rainbow, of which Captain Joseph was master and part owner, was captured by a French privateer. He told his crew to go below, and took the wheel himself, but was forced to surrender. With all on board he was made a prisoner, being subsequently released. Captain Howland estimated his loss at about $3000. Nearly a century afterward, through the Court of French Spoliation Claims, his heirs were partially reimbursed by a payment slightly in excess of one-tenth of that amount. Some of them received shares of only eight dollars and twelve cents each.

Captain Howland lived for a number of years after the death of his father on the old Round Hills farm.

9393 When a small child, her father, leaving his wife and three small children, cheerfully answered the call of his country, and took up arms against the encroachments of the king of England and in defence of his inalienable rights. His father-in-law, meantime, took his little family into his own home and care. On his return from war his pecuniary circumstances were such as to require him to find homes for some of his children, where they could earn their support. Sally, together with her brother John, who was just three years older than she, were put out with a mr. John Edwards of Southbury, Ct., to live until of age. Here she remained until eighteen years old, and according to their terms of her parents' agreement, she returned to Ridgefield, where, at her parents' home, married her cousin Jesse Bouton, jr.

They settled first in Ridgefield, and subsequently removed to Poundridge, where he died Feb. 22, 1822. Soon after his death she spent some time in the family of her brother, Thaddeus Boughton, in Washington, Dutchess Co., New York, where with her youngest son, Enoch Bouton, she remained a few months and then returned to Ridgefield, Ct., where, Oct. 19, 1828, she married, second, Enoch Holly, of Ridgefield, where they lived until June 1837, when he died. She then went to live with her daughter, Eliza Gilbert, three miles east of Ridgefield village. She was a member of the M.E. Church, a devoted Christian, a kind and sympathizing neighbor, and a most affectionate mother. She died July 2, 1858. at Ridgefield, where she was buried.

9394 When Aethelred died in 1016 there were two claimants to the throne - his son, Edmund Ironside, and Sweyn's son, Canute. After several battles, the two agreed to divide the country between them. However, Edmund soon died and Canute became King. After Canute's death in 1035, the throne passed to his two sons - Harold and Harthacanute - and then in 1042, to Edward the Confessor, who reigned until 1066.

Ruler of England, Denmark, and Norway from 1016 to 1035, Canute brought much-needed stability to the affairs of England during his reign. Although a Viking, he treated Dane and Saxon alike and wisely appointed Englishmen to positions of importance in the church and at court. His modernization of the country's laws bear this out and he may be fairly described a one of the bet kings England has ever had. After his death in 1035, Canute was mourned by both Saxon and Dane.

9397 When he was seven years old, he was apprenticed to learn a trade. He became a worker in iron. When the Revolutionary War broke out he enlisted. His service which began with a march to Boston when the first call came, was as follows:

Col. James Williams, Brig. Gen. Godfrey's (Bristol Co.) brigade; service 3 days; company marched from Taunton to Tiverton, R.I., on the alarm of Aug. 1, 1780.

Soon after the war he went to southern Vermont. "The first inhabitants of Woodford to take the freeman's oath were --Caleb More, Obed Eddy, Zadok Pierce, etc., a;so; the first representive chosen was Obed Eddy who utterly refused to serve, in consequence of which no suffrages were given for Governor", etc. (Hemingway's Gazetteer of Vermont History in Vol. I, p. 248).

When the census of 1790 was taken Obadiah Edee was in Bennington, Vt., with a household consisting of three males over 16, five under 16, and a male over 45, one girl under 10, and a female over 45. When his estate was settled Oct. 5, 1825, Phebe, "daughter and heir of Obadiah, late of Woodford, Vt., was made administrator with Joseph Hollister as surety." Ebenezer Temple and John Knapp were the appraisers (Bennington, Vt. Probate Rec.).

9398 When James ascended the English throne in 1603, he had already been king of Scotland for 36 years. There, he had ruled by the Divine Right of Kings - whereby kings were appointed by God and so were not answerable to men. This style of government was unacceptable inEngland, so he ruled for long periods without Parliament. He thus squandered the legacy of strong government left to him by Elizabeth I.

The two principal favourites of James I were, in succession, Robert Ker and George Villiers. Ker, Earl of Somerset, was entrusted with the King's most intimate business. He angered the nation by encouraging the King to make an alliance with Spain, and by helping to raise dubious taxes. By 1616 the King had taken to Villiers, who became Earl of Buckingham.

The Gunpowder Plot was hatched by conspirators disgruntled with the King's failure to grant toleration of Catholics. they planned to blow up the House of Lords when the King came for the opening of Parliament on 5 November 1605. they dug a tunnel under the House of Lords and filled a cellar with barrels of gunpowder. However, he plot was foiled when one of the conspirators, Guy Fawkes, was discovered in the cellar with the gunpowder. the conspirators were arrested, tried, and executed.

Although well educated, James appeared foolish, and was known as the 'wisest fool in Christendom'.
