still more spicy quality which you will find out for yourselves if you
will investigate. Here is a telegram.
Cheese Makers Convention,
Sheboygan, Wis.
Am sorry that sudden urgent necessity requires my presence in
Washington in connection with relief for unemployed. However, I
extend to you my welcome to the original center of America's cheese
industry. Extend best wishes for your success in solving prob'ems
of your hard pressed industry.
MAYOR SONNENBURG.
We always have open house here, so that anybody who feels he
wants the key to any place in town should simply feel themselves at
liberty to go and find out for himself what we have here. The City
of Sheboygan through me as representing the mayor, gives you a
hearty welcome and hopes that you will enjoy yourselves here.
RESPONSE
By E. F. HORN, Beaver Dam
Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen, Ald. Messmer: In behalf of
the Mayor of Sheboygan who has handed you the key to Sheboygan,

farmers of Wisconsin and the cheese makers in particular through
his editorials. He is always a free speaker and I haven't seen up to
this day, where anyone contradicted his editorials. There is still a
lot of work to do, and through Mr. Broughton's presence, possibly
others will follow in line, and we can whip some of the things that
actually are ruining our good cheese-producing state.
You all know that Wisconsin has been noted everywhere for its
quality and also quantity of cheese. The quantity is in jeopardy.
Many other states today are making cheese in large quantities where
they have never made it before. There is a reason for that. And
the big reason is that many of our good cheese makers from the state
of Wisconsin were driven out of the state and have gone to other
states to establish their trade. One big reason is the competition
among the cheese makers themselves as to selling their labor for a
