V> •fr Communication, [The Sentinel believes that every man should have an opportunity to show his innocence of crime when he has been accused, and thus we pub- isb the following letter written by Mr. McKinnon which is self-explana- tory.l—Ed. Mb. Editor:—Please pardon me for taking up a little space In your valua- tg© paper, but I feel it my duty to call the attention of tbe public to the fact that it has been whispered around and in some instances has been talked quite loud that I was the instigator or in some way connected iu theoiigin of a fire purported to have oeen set in the rear of an outhouse connected at the back of Mr. Tatman's store. I hope that the people of this city do not think that I am a fool or that there is insanity in any way connected with mv parents or myself, as no case of this nature was ever proven against any person who was not foolish or had an object in view, that is, spite, enmity, gain or notoriety. From the fact that this story has been circu- Jated I realize that I have been done a #reat injustice. 1 feel there has been committed upon me a damnable outrage without any foundation, whatever as I defy the authorities of this fiitv to establish one fact by reliable testimony to cast a reflection of guilt npOQ my character of the above charge. False tale bearers have done .more mischief in this world than has the .poisoned bowl or the assassin's jJagRer, First question: Was there a fire set in the rear of Mr. Tatman's outhouse on that night or was it a „ream or ah imagination on the part (Ot the person Who gave the alarm? 1 questioned Mr. Sines before witnesses iltie saw a fire and his reply was in fcbe affirmative. "Did it blaze up?" "Yes." "Did you put the Are out?" "No."' "Who put the fire but?" "I &aa'b know," Henry Horning and ,Gflorge Hickey were the first upon the ^Celaeand they claim there was no Are. 3$q signs of fire when the hose com- D»ny arrived on the ground. Thev failed tp locate any trace of fire. As 1 Said before, if there was a Are there jffliist be Some object in view in setting such. My brother, Arcby's, blacksmith shop joins immediately upon this outhouse which is purported -t^have been fired, and as for Mr. Tat* ga__t ue has been my guide in busl- „j<BS3 while living here and a personal friend since I first formed his acquaintance about seventeen years ago. The next information I gain from a friend is to the effect that this Are was set for the purpose of burning out my own store and stock that we might obtain the insurance. This matter can be illustrated in a few words. My partner and I have between nine .and ten hundred dollars invested in stock and building and carry three hundred dollars insurance. I feel satisfied that there is one of two things connected with this mystery, either taere was no fire at all or the accusition was made with the idea of boycott. 1 acknowledge that I have some enemies in this city so gotten from the fact that 1 have endeavored to collect from them what duly belouged to me. In one instance I was obliged to reson to tho courts by garnishment to collect a grocery bill. In another instance 1 found a man stealing from me valuable property that I had entrusted to him and for this offence I forbad him permission of entering my place of business. I cannot believe that the broad minded people of this city would take any stock in reports without any foundation whatever. Understand 1 realize I owe a duty to my family, to my neighbor, to my fellow being and to my God and I hope that his Satanic Majesty will never become so entwined about me that I will be influenced to do that which will bring disgrace upon my aged mother, my family and my friends. This absurd and malicious attack will undoubtedly be of some Injury to my reputation but thank God my character stands spotless as the infant in its mother's arms so far as this matter is concerned. I understand that this' story got into circulation through a report of Mr. Sines stating that he had seen a man enter a shed at the rear of our store on that night. A few words in relation to my whereabouts. On the night this fire Is purported to have been set, between nine and ten o'clock I closed the store and walked down the street, Visited a while and then went home and had gone to bed. When the first alarm was given I arose, dressed and went immediately to the fire, looked around, and learning that the lire was not a dangerous One, started for home. On the way 1 fell in with Clyde Harris and Wesley Ortb and they accompanied me home to my own door. After leaving these men I walked into the house, undressed and went to bed. In-a very few minutes the second alarm was given. I arose again, dressed, and started for the scene of conflagration. Just as I passed out of my door 1 met Thomas Dwyer and he and I walked to a place where we saw a crowd gathered in a shed at the rear of the store. I saw a light and inquired what was the matter. Someone told me that Mr. Sines bad seen a man enter that shed and they were in search of him. I said if he went in there he was there yet if he had not made his escape through those open windows on the north side. 1 hurried and got a key for the front door, opened it, and in company with under sheriff Welch and marshal Parmeter, we entered the building and made a thorough search finding no one. I am prepared to establish eyery statement in the above by a preponderance of testimony and satisfy any courtobeyond any question of doubt that those stories in circulation are absolutely false, erroneous, malicious, and without foundation. Dated May 8,1901. A. J, McKinnon. UNDER THE BLANKET. Clare's Citizens Take Action Regarding Our Charter.

Canfleld, J. H. Galliver, E. G. Welch and E. M, Mussell, the mayor ex-officio a member, were appointed to reyiew the charter and compare it with our present special charter, reporting at a meeting called for Monday evening. The committee very carefully compared the charters and made a lengthy report showing the advantages of the Blanket charter and this meeting almost unaminously voted to notify Senator Doherty that the wishes of the people as expressed by this meetingi are that he use his influence to secure such legislation as will put us under the Blanket Charter, Space prevents a complete report but it is well to know something of what the change of charters would mean.

' All the ordinances, now in force, continue In force. The aldermen and mayor may receive a salary not to exceed fifty dollars per year, at 'the discretion of the council. But tbe best of all is, that as a large number of the small cities, in Michigan are under this charter, the Supreme Court has decided on many of the sections, and these decisions hold in all cities with this charter, thus the expense of testing the validity of any portion of the charter has already been paid. Glare is the only city in Michigan having a charter like the one under which we were incorporated. Suffice it to say that it is the unanimous opinion Of the committee who spent hours study* ing these charters, that the Blanket Charter will in the end be a great saving financially to the taxpayers, and we trust that ere this Is seen by our readers the legislature will have granted the request of the citizens of Clare, and placed them along with the majority Of small cities in this state under the Blanket Charter. Miss Beatrice Fall Passes Away. After a lingering illness Miss Beatrice Fall, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Adam Fall, passed away Tuesday morning about five o'clock, having suffered from a complication of diseases at the last. Death is always an unwelcome guest, but when it enters the home and takes the pride and hope of the family in her youth the grim messenger is doubly unwelcome. One year ago in June when the four young people of her class were graduated, they little thought that before a year had passed one of their number would finish her earthly work and cause another link to be broken in the alumni association. After graduating in June she began teaching in September but at the close of" her second term she was obliged to resign her school and since then has beefe confined to her bed most of the time. As a teacher she was mo3t successful, endearing herself to her pupils and taking a deep interest in her work. As a student in school, Supt. Bennett of the city schools, under whom she graduated says of her: "In my thought Miss Fall will always be associated with the pleasant memories of school life. She was strong as a student, steadfast in purpose, faithful to duty and always unselfishly gave her influence to the elevation' of the best side of school life.'' She was twenty years old December 27, bor» in Stockdale, Ont., and came here with her parents ten years ago. She was a member of "the Methodist church also the Epworth League ta both of which she was an earnest worker. Besides her parents ao« three brothers 4here is a very large number of friends left to mourn itteeir loss and her early death. The foseraf services will be held at the M. &. church this afternoon at 2:30, (Rev. •& C. Eobinson of St. Louis «_tf .Eew. Hathaway officiating.
