    The German Language in Lake View

    A great many German residents of Lake View held a meeting, yesterday afternoon, at Korn's Hall, presided over by F. W. Labahn, who introduced Mr. E. Rummel as speaker of the day. Mr. Rummel explained the standpoint of Lake View German settlers, who have wished since many years the introduction of German in instruction in Lake View public schools.

    All further action on this subject was transferred to an agitation committee, which will start at once to circulate twelve petitions at the same time, in order to get the necessary number of signatures towards the realization of the plan.
