Introduction

[The first page of this book is missing -- it continues . . .]

Cedar poles, ties, posts, and other products form one of the leading industries of the city and in this line several wide awake and progressive firms do a large business here, among whom may be mentioned the Bradley Co., H. L. Brooks, the Log & Tie Co. and many smaller dealers and jobbers.

The Tomahawk Pulp & Paper Co., whose plant a short distance in the southern portion of the city, is one of the thriving institutions of the Valley and supplies the print paper upon which is printed four or five of the leading daily papers of the country. It employs a considerable force of men and is one of the factors in the development of this section of the country, inasmuch as it affords a cash market for large quantities annually of spruce pulp wood. This item is of more consequence than is apparent to the casual observer because of the fact that hardly a section of land within a wide radius of the mill but carries some timber suitable for pulp wood. As these lands are settled for farming purposes, the new settler finds ready at hand the means of obtaining easily and quickly the ready cash to meet the demands on him before he can raise his first crop. This is true of all classes of timber-nearly every foot is good for so much cash as there is a market here at home for it all.

The city has granted a franchise to the Electric, Water & Telephone Co. to place its poles and wires and our streets are now lighted by electricity. Many of the larger concerns, most of the mills, hotels, and many private houses and business places are now using electric lights. The company is a strong one financially and had an established plant.

The Somo Transportation Company is one of the institutions of the city and has a fleet of a dozen or more boats built for service on Lake Tomahawk and the rivers and employed in the lumber and logging interest or for pleasure purposes.

The Marinette, Tomahawk & Western Railway is a Tomahawk institution. It operates some 50 miles of railroad at the present time and is now building as much more, with broader plans for the future. Its lines cut across the country from Gleason on the southeast to Spirit Falls, a thriving new town built by Tomahawk capital, on the west. The road also has a branch connecting the city with the great trunk railway of the Soo Line at Tomahawk Junction, six miles distant. It is well equipped with rolling stock, engines, depots, etc., and with the Soo Line connections in one direction and the Chicago & North Western system in the other, is of great advantage to our shippers.

The road has a large and convenient grain elevator, the machinery of which is operated by electricity.

The Spirit Falls Milling Company, another large concern having one of the most completely equipped and modern flour mills in Northern Wisconsin, located at Spirit Falls, is another thriving Tomahawk institution. This is a new enterprise, having been in operation but a short time, and it is rapidly establishing an enviable reputation for its product, which is shipped in carload lots to points in this state and Michigan besides furnishing a large share of the local supply.

The Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway have a subdivision here and nearly 150 railroad men find employment on this road and the Marinette, Tomahawk & Western. The two roads with their connections give us the best possible transportation facilities and enable shipments to be made in and out to and from all points of the compass.

There are two banks in the city and an indication of the financial standing of our business concerns may be found in the fact that their total resources aggregate over $500,000.00, as evidenced by their last sworn statement of condition.

The Tomahawk Hotel Company, operating The Mitchell and The Irving in this city, and the Elmwood at Spirit Falls - all modern hostelries - The Mitchell having a national reputation as the best hotel in the state, the size of the town considered - is another important concern.

The Tomahawk Brick Works, a fine plant with a large capacity, has been in operation the past two years. It is located east of the city limits and obtains its supply of what is considered among the best quality of brick clay in the country only a few miles from the city on the line of the Marinette, Tomahawk & Western road. These clay beds are practically inexhaustible and the company is making a high grade of brick. They have an equipment of thoroughly modern machinery and employ a considerable number of men.

The City Water Works - owned by the city - draws our water supply from a large spring in the eastern part of town. It is pumped into a large elevated reservoir and the main distribution reaches nearly every settled portion of the city and is being rapidly extended. The water is pure and clear and in all respects satisfactory. The system also affords good fire protection, an ample number of fire plugs being conveniently located. An adjunct to this protection is a large and well organized volunteer hose company with complete equipment.

Chief among the many industries of the city, the gigantic tanning plant of the Eastern & Western Tannery Co. stands in bold relief against the business horizon of the city of Tomahawk. This plant has just been erected and although it is not in running order, it will commence active operations early this year. It is situated at the Tomahawk Dam one mile from the business center of the city. The plant is to be run by electricity, the generator being driven by water power, furnished by the Tomahawk river. Without the power house the buildings which comprise the plant are the roller house, yards, beam house, sweat pits, hide house, leach house, cooler house, pump room, bark mill, boiler house, engine house and scrub room; some idea of the size of this immense structure can be gained when it is known that from the north side of the plant to the south is a distance of 725 feet. An immense force of labor will be employed in this plant in the manufacture of leather. Five hundred sides will be tanned daily summer and winter. In the manufacture of this leather, 40 cords of bark are used daily. These thousands of cords of hemlock bark that are used annually are of inestimable value to the farmer, homesteader and land owner. The timber can be cut in the summer and striped of its bark and afterwards sawed into logs, ties, pulp wood, etc. Bark peeling has already become one of the leading occupations of the small and large land owners and owing to the large demand for hemlock bark, can command an exceptionally good price.

Tomahawk's retail dealers in all lines are a wide-awake class of business men, liberal and progressive. It is believed that a larger percentage of our merchants own the buildings in which they conduct business than do those of any other city in the Valley. A business man of the city, well qualified in the premises, recently remarked that Tomahawk retail business houses presented what might almost be called a phenomenon in a small city - not one of them but is doing a prosperous business and making money.

The Standard Mercantile Co., carrying a large stock of general merchandise and running several departments, is doing a constantly growing business and has established branch stores at several points. They handle pretty nearly everything that is bought and sold in the way of merchandise, and are one of the solid concerns of North Wisconsin.

The well-known established of John Oelhafen, general merchandise, is also doing a large business, and is among the solid institutions of this section. Mr. Oelhafen also has an extensive logging and lumber business and is now adding considerable farming and stock-raising operations to his numerous occupations.

C. A. Gesell's clothing store is also one of Tomahawk's prosperous business institutions. This store has a large and complete stock of clothing, furnishing goods and shoes.

Fairfield & Co., under the management of A. A. Dutrisac, carry a complete line of dry goods, etc., and have a large trade; the New York Bargain House, managed by Mrs. James O'Leary, also handles dry goods and notions and has a lucrative trade. A. Thum conducts a general store, and is one of the oldest merchants in the city; there are a number of first-class grocers, among them. D. C. Jones, P. Marcouiller, A. Wangard and H. Burrington; three hardware dealers, A. J. Olson, Evenson Bros., and R. F. Koth, all carrying large stocks; two drug stores, the Standard Pharmacy and C. E. Macomber; two confectioners and bakers, J. N. Meunier and Joseph Tremblay, also doing a restaurant business; two restaurants, Geo. E. Roberts and G. H. Gerwell; numerous hotels, boarding houses and saloons; dealers in sash, doors and blinds, building material, etc., Cronkite Bros., also carry hay, feed, grain, etc.; a furniture dealer carrying one of the largest stocks in the northern part of the state, Jacob Nick; numerous blacksmiths and wagon shops; A. Moe, Tomahawk Bottling Works; three butcher and packing establishments, the Piper Packing Co., R. C. Thielman and P. Marcouiller, each concern having a large business in supplying the city trade and the numerous logging camps; two cigar factories, L. Kabat and E. Schultz; one notion store, Mrs. K. E. Clarke; four barber shops, Phil Jenelle, Peter Paul, A. Langlois and G. Slater; two millinery stores, Mrs. L. C. Nourse, and Miss L. Wangard; three jewelers, W. Kaphaem, the Standard jewelry store and E. E. Searl.

Tomahawk also has one of the most complete foundries and machine shops north of Milwaukee, the Tomahawk Iron Works, the establishment being thoroughly equipped for all classes of light and heavy work. There are three livery establishments, the Irving Stables, O. Londo and L. A. Hildebrand. There are three doctors, J. D. Cutter, Jay Johnston and W. A. Baker; four lawyers, A. H. Woodworth, James O'Leary, G. M. Sheldon and W. V. Silverthorn.

The Sacred Heart Hospital under the management of the well-known Catholic Sisters of the Sacred Heart, is one of the best institutions of the kind in the state.

There are several dealers in land and logs, among them the Tomahawk Land Co., Whitson & Johnson, Smith & Sutliff, Charles Hoogsteel and Atcherson & Foss.

There are two newspapers, The Tomahawk Leader, H. D. Bliefernicht, and The Tomahawk, published by The Tomahawk Publishing Co.

Besides the stocks of boots and shoes carried by the general merchandise dealers, there is one exclusive shoe store, G. O. Newborg.

There are four insurance agencies, W. H. & J. W. Bradley, Bankers, carrying a line of companies; A. J. Olson, J. W. Kelly and C. E. Macomber.

There is a first-class dentist, Dr. J. R. Todd; a good photographer and taxidermist, C. A. Seidler; three tailor shops, William Bohn, F. Bunde and the Tomahawk Tailoring Co.; one optician, D. P. heath, several renting agencies, contractors, painters, etc.; two good dairies, H. E. Fuller and William Ehmann.

Besides the concerns named, there are various other small industries that are usually found in towns of this size.

The Lumbermen's Boom Company is also a Tomahawk institution, employing a large number of men at certain seasons of the year, as well as the Sorting Works, where the logs of the various lumber concerns are sorted.

No attempt can be made in an article of this character to cover the entire field of the industries of the city, nor can accurate statistics of output of products or number of men employed be given. When to this general cursory view is added some few brief facts regarding the development of the farming and stock raising resources of the trade territory of the city the purpose of this article will have been accomplished. It is conservatively estimated that within the past twelve months over one hundred and fifty families have settled on farming lands within this territory. The Meadow Farm Co., operates a large stock, dairy and poultry farm at Bass Lake, about seven miles from the city as well as a vegetable and truck farm of between four and five acres in the city limits. The sales of goods to the farmers, in nearly all lines, has increased from 50 to 100 per cent; farm lands, aside from timber values, have increased in actual selling prices from 25 to 75 per cent; more lands have been sold for farming purposes in the past year than in the five previous years.

Perhaps to this should be added the fact that within the past year the city has built a fine City Hall, and a complete sewer system has been put in. The Standard Mercantile Company are now at work building one of the largest and best mercantile buildings in Northern Wisconsin.

One can't help feeling proud of the dozens of pretty houses which have been built in Tomahawk in the past two years. They are not mere frames or boxes with so many cubic feet of space cut up by haphazard partitions. The builders have put brains in their work. They have studied beauty as well as convenience, and the result is that Tomahawk now has a number of neat and pretty cottages; not palatial, but cheerful, attractive, homelike and up to date.

Then you have before you some small conception of the raw material from which our citizens expect to build a city here, as well as some idea concerning the future growth and progress of the place.

And to these things you may add the fact that within near limits of the city is a very large horsepower of undeveloped water power; that within the radius of a few miles are seven or eight rivers and some twenty lakes of as pure and clean water and as picturesque, healthful and beautiful surroundings as can be found in an section of the Union; that there are untouched hardwood forests of millions of feet of the best timber for a half dozen manufacturing purposes, almost within sight of the city, and thousands of unoccupied acres of as fertile and productive soil as there is in the state.

Take all these things together and you have not a far cry to predict a prosperous future for Tomahawk.
