The 28th Republican Senatorial convention was held at Roscommon on Tuesday and the convention did the rie-ht thing by nominating a hustler— A. J, Doherty of Clare.

His many Coleman friends extend to him their hearty congratulations.— Coleman Independent. John Archamboult left Wednesday for Harrison where he will again take up housekeeping with his family.

The good people of Clare made up a purse for him this week and through the columns of the Sentinel he wishes us to express hiB sincerest thanks to his benefactors, for this and past favors. At a meeting of the Lansing business men held last week it was decided to do no further advertising in any of the various little schemes constantly being presented to them, but to confine their advertising entirely to the news papers. The decision was a wise one, and Clare merchants would find it profitable to adopt the Lansing.policy.. as their own. In this connection it would be also profitable to keep the fact in mind that the circulation of the Sentinel nearly equals the combined circulation of all the papers in Clare county. Mr. and Mrs, Hartshorn and two sons, Myron and Ward, from Dixon, Illinois, are visiting a couple of weeks at the home of Mr, and Mrs. P, M. Loomis. Mrs. Loomis is an aunt of the lady.

They were very thankful to escape with their liyes, wmtwmwiiwm?^^ & a avy and ompany Uhe Susy Stores, A Grand Success. The Sunday School Convention held at'Clare August 21-22 was a grand success. Some sixteen schools were represented. The Basley school led in representation. Tuesday morning session opened with very few in attendance, but the other sessions were well attended, and when the convention closed Wednesday evening, every one said that It had been the best and most inspiring convention ever held in Clare. The addresses which were most helpful, were: "The Needs in Sunday School Work and Normal Class" by Mr. M, H Reynolds. "Primary Work" by Miss Clara Bruske; "Spiritual Work" by Rev. G. H. Maxwell; "Social Work" by Rev. Younglove: "Instruction of Children" by Rev. E. R. Clark, of Saginaw; but best of all was "Best Things" in which Rev. M. Knowles showed us what the Sunday school has done, and Rev. E. R. Clark, led us to look at the possibilities for the Sunday school of the future. The young peoples' meeting led by Asa H. Aldrich was helpful to all. The following officers were elected for the county work for another year: President, Rev, A. C. Barclay; Vice President, Mrs. 0. B. Chaffee: Secretary, Mr. Asa Alarich; Treasurer, Mr. Mell Buell. Additional members, Mrs. Langin, Loomis; Mrs. Dr. BraGy, Harrison; Rev. G. W. Maxwell, Far. well, and Mr. Wm.

Fred, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Doherty, met with a painful accident Wednesday evening. It appears that Olna Hawkins got possession of a twenty-two caliber t single shot pistol and went in snucks with Fred, the latter furnishing the cartridges. They had burned considerable powder that afternoon and 'were about to seperate in the evening at eight o'clock and were in front of the G. A. R. hall on Main street, when the pistol was acJidently discharged, the ball -penetrating Fred's neck and taking an upward course. Dr. Sanford and Dr. Richmond were called, and yesterday morning Dr. Barbour of Saginaw was here, but It was decided not to probe for the bullet. Later the X-ray may be applied and if the ball can be located it will be removed. Fred is resting easily at this writing and it is hoped nothing serious will result, but Is It only a wonder he was not Instantly killed, which would have been the case had the bullet taken effect in the brain. We tack no moral onto this, but trust every boy having an old rusty, broken-springed pistol of any sort about his old cloths will go down *to the bank of the lake, and throwing it in, say, "Here goes nothing."

The democratic national platform has arrived in the Philippines and is bearing its logical fruit—dead American soldiers. More American soldiers were killed in July in the island of Panay than in any other month since January, as the result of democratic encouragement. Encouraged by a.the democratic denunciation of the American campaign in the Philippines and by democratic promises of Filipino independence in the event of the election of Bryan, the Filipinos are making war against our troops with renewed energy. Filipino hostility is increasing in Luzon, where the rebels are now using smokeless powder, obtained from filibusters. The good results that the administration expected from the amnesty proclamation have been rendered impossible of attainment owing to the hopes Of independence held out to the Filipinos In the democratic platform. Some of the democratic words of cheer follow: "We condemn and denounce the Philippine policy of the present administration. * * * We favor an immediate declaration Of the nation's purpose to give to the Filipinos first, a stable form of government; second, in^ dependence; and third, protection from outside interference.'' .The foregoing part of-the democratic platform has already cost the lives of many American)soldiers in the Philippines. Dead: Americans probably Will be even more numerous when the Filipinos read the following extract from Bryan's speech of acceptance: "If elected l shall convene congress In extraordinary session as soon as 1 am inaugurated and recommend -an immediate declaration of the nation's purpose * * * to give independence to the Filipinos."—[Detroit Journal.
