D. E. Alward was made chairman' and 0. IL Clark secretar*/.

T. Converse, E. <x. Jefferies and Ed. Falk. The convention was animated . U-'H-ygliout and at all times enthus- liiStic, and when the voters separated afteradjournment it was with a firm determination on the part of every Eepublican to work in every honorable way for the success of the ticket. SECOND WAED. The second warders repaired to the Sentinel office immediately after the adlournment of the city convention and there held their caucus. Prof. W. -J. Hutchinson was chosen chairman, J. W. Calkins, secretary, and W. J. Dwyer and Ed. "W. Whitney, tellers. The candidates were nominated as follows: Supervisor—Gordon T, Converse.- * Alderman—Charles H, Clark. Constable—M. G-. Smith.

A SPLENDID TICKET. The gentlemen named are representative citizens, who, if elected, will discharge the duties incumbent on them with fidelity "and honor. Mr. Jenney is in every way qualified for the office of mayor. His service as an alderman has given him experience which will be valuable to him in the higher office, A clean, straightforward, business man, upright and honorable, with the best interests of the city at heart. Mr. Jenney deserves to win in this campaign. To elect him will be to make certain that the city government for the next year will be presided over by a worthy man, and the welfare of all the people will be guarded. Everybody is! Murney Bell's friend. His qualifications for the office of city clegk no one can question. He is ..all right au_: his name adds strength i;o the whole ticket. Isaac Harris-, the nominee for city treasurer, has been there before and the people know him as a careful, conscientious and faithful public servant. In his former term as city treasurer, he 'was gentlemanly and obliging,.always on hand and ever active to discharge his duties. A very small percentage of the tax had to be returned uncollected that year. Mr. Harris is a Union veteran, deserving of support on that account as well as on account of his eminent fitness. E. D. Palmer, for school inspector, and A. W. Mclntyre, for justice, are the right men for those positions. Each has proved his worth by former service, and each has a host of friends who will rejoice that the convention nominated them. The ward tickets are good ones. Eepublicans can rally around their nominees this spring with enthusiasm. Let every honorable -effort be put forth from now until election day,that these men may be elected and the principles of Eepublicamsm triumph again ! <j£^ EASTER OPENING.

Harrison, March 25th.—There is a movement on foot to haye the Michigan Central railroad extend its line from Gladwin westward, striking Harrison, Marion, Cadillac, and thence to Manistee, where, we understand, the M.C. has purchased dockage.. Several years ago a similar movement was started but for some reason was hot carried out. At that time the citizens of the various towns along the proposed route went so far as to secure the right of way and in several instances offered a bonus, but it seems that the M.C. was not willing to make the extension. Under the present existing circumstances it appears that by a goodly amount of hustling this project can be made successful. It behooves our citizens as well as the citizens in the various towns along the proposeed route to get to work and see what can be done in the way of inducements. With a line extending eastward from Manistee to Bay City the M.C. would become a competitor with the F. & P. M. in the western freight traffic, besides opening up a large tract of timber, and placing large tracts of excellent farming lands on the market, which with good shipping facilities would soon become settled up by practical farmers. We have the assurance that Marion will put her'best work in to secure this road and later we will be prepared to say more on this subject. NOTICE OF REGISTRATION. To the Electors of the City oe Clare: ft. Notice is hereby given that the Board of Registration for the several wards of the City of Clare will be in session, Saturday, April 4th, 1896, from 8 o'clock in the forenoon until 5 o'clock in the afternoon, at the following places viz.: First Ward, at the old Council Eoom.

DRESSMAKING Miss Ella Harris wishes to announce that she is again ready to do all kinds of first-class dressmaking. Call at her home, east 8th street. 17-4 Job printing at Sentinel office, first- class and cheap POLITICAL POINTERS. T. C. Holbrook got there just in time to take the Democratic nomination for city clerk, he being one of those who became citizens of the United States this week. Eollin H.' Jenney always does what he thinks is right, without fear'or favor. * That's one qualification that commends him as a candidate for Mayor. * David Kirkoatrick and John Kirk- patrick took out their papers before Judge Dodds this week and are now full fledged citizens of the United States. * *. * The Eepublicans of Clare have an opportunity this spring to win a decisive victory. The convention and caucuses have left no sore snots anv- where and we believe there will be a strong pull all together for the whole ticket. * A vote for Isaac Harris for city treasurer is a vote for* a brave soldier, a tried and true custodian of the people's money and an honest man. * * * The pupils of the high school and grammar school have caught the fever and have been practicing this week on holding caucuses, electing U, S. Senators, etc. - Tbe youngsters worked up lively interest among themselves in political affairs. * Archie McKinley and James Walsh, were in the city this week, both of them declaring their adherence to Eepublican principles from now on. Both these gentlemen have always been democrats. * The following is the committee appointed at the democratic city convention, charged with the work of booming the democratic ticket: Messrs. J. Mason, Harry Hubel, °C. P. Louch, John A Jackson and Geo. Benner. * « Charlie Fishley was nominated for two offices, by the democrats, school inspector and supervisor. Messrs Clark, Yan Brunt and Mortz, the Eepub[ican candidates for Alder- man?are all pledged to strict economy in the administration of the city's business. ■ar A man who has proved himself capable of successfully conducting his- own business and bringing the same to a highly successful issue* is the man much needed to pilot the affairs of our little city foi* the ensuing year. Such a man is Rollin H. Jenney. * * For nearly eighteen years has Eollin H. Jenney, the Eepublican candidate for mayor, been employed by the Union Iron Company. The man who can hold a position for that length of time in one firm i certainly well qualified to hold the office for which he has been nominated. The fact that he has worked from the bottom of the ladder up should also be considered. And what is more, while Mr. Jenney would like to resign his position with this company in order to the better look after his private business affairs, the Union Iron Co. is determined not to let him go—he is too careful and good a business man for them to lose. It is just such a man that we want for mayor the coming year. The man who is mayor of Clare next year will have the office in one of the most critical periods in her history, and we need a man with Mr. Jenney's business ability for the position. * * * For clerk—vote for genial Murney Bell. There isn't a man in the city better qualified for the office. * "Honest Ike" Harris will be our next city treasurer. Just set that down. It will be money in every tax paper's pocket to have him elected. Mr. Harris was our treasurer for one year and not one one word of complaint was ever heard of him so efficiently did he perform his duties, With his one years' experience he will be enabled to collect almost every cent. Every taxpayer knows that it takes at least one year's experience to. get on to the ropes, That is the reason it will be money in your pocket to vote for Mr. Harris. He's had the experience and there'll be mighty little tax returned as "un-collected" when begets through with the tax roll. * * * No better choice could possibly have been made than that of the 3rd ward Eenublican caucus in nominating John C. Eoekafellow for supervisor. He is an honest and careful man and in every way well qualified. In electing J. C Eoekafellow, the citizens of the 3rd ward will place their affairs in the hands of a man with years of experience in which lie has never been found wanting. JTHE DEMOCRATS. C. H. Sutherland presided over the deliberations of the democrats at their city convention Tuesday evening and June Eoss was secretary-. Thirty-six votes were cast and the following ticket was nominated: Mayor—David Eorison. Clerk—Thos. C. Holbrook. Treasurer—John H. Wilson. School Inspector—Chas. H. Fishley. Justice—J. H. Carpenter. J. S. Eoss was nominated for clerk but he wouldn't run against Murney Bell and so pulled out. Then Mr. Holbrook was induced to take it. SECOND WARD. Dayid Eorison presided and Charlie Eoss was clerk in the 2d ward democratic caucus. There was no contest on anything. Charles Fishley captured the nomination for supervisor, James Louch was made, the candidate for alderman and Henry Brown for constable. THIRD WARD. E. M. Musseil presided here, with June Eoss keeping the record. James S. Boyd secured the nomination for supervisor, Alfred Louch and John Jackson were named for aldermen and Will Parrish for constable. THE PROHIBITIONISTS. There were thirty-nine voters in the city convention of the Prohibitionists last night. James F. Tatman was elected chairman and E.Harvey editor of the Eeporter, secretary, but as the latter is not a citizen of this country, it was feared that his serving as secretary might lead to some difficulty later on, and so Jay Piper was selected in his stead. John Giberson made a speech then and when he got through the convention proceeded to nominate their ticket. This was uhe result. Mayor—James F. Tatman. ■ Clerk—L. E. Harding. Treasurer—Thomas Dorsey. School Inspector—Harvey Hinman.. Justice—W. H, Elden. The nominee for mayor accepted the nomination reluctantly, saying that he could not enter upon the campaign with any heart this spring, "FIRST WARD. G. W. Lee was chairman here and Adam Fall was secretary. Some mighty efforts have been put forth by some outsiders to get the prohibitionists in this ward to leave the head of the ticket blank or else nominate a man not a prohibitionist for the place, but the work was done all in vain, for the ticket is as follows; Supervisor—George W. Lee. Aldermen—C. Scoonover and W. E. Bidwell. Constable—Adam Fall. SECOND "WARD. John Harris presided over the deho- erations of the prohibitionists in this ward, and Jay Piper continued his arduous duties at the side table. The ticket named is: Supervisor—E. B, Gorr. Alderman—A. S. Ehoades. Constable—D. J. Fox. THIRD WARD. The third ward caucus was presided oyer by James Dunwoodie. H. Holden was secretary, and Ed. White and Elder Long were tellers. Following is the ticket: Supervisor—J. Schilling. Alderman—L. E. Davey for the long term aud H. Allen for the short term. Constable—George Mater. OUR PRICE LIST.

DAVY & COMPANY CLARE SCHOOL NOTES. Two new pupils have entered the kindergarten department. '' Hart Holden and Arthur Robinson visited the high school, Wednesday. Mr. Downs, principal of the Far- well schools was visiting the various departments of our school this week, and looking over our school work. It is well for lovers of beans that Clare county farmers do not treat the early developement of that homely vegetable as did one of the bright young ladies in the botany class, recently. It is solemnly affirmed that she poked them back in*co the earth as soon as they attempted to raise their* delicate sprouts. The grammar rooms and high school had a sham election of senators this week, the former representing the House 'of Representatives and the latter the Senate. * While speaking of political terms in our morning exercises, the question was asked: "What is meant by a -dark horse ?'" No one being able to tell, we were then asked to name a so-called '•darkhorse," and an innocent lad answered—"Grover Cleveland !" DIST. ISO. -4, VERNOK. Report for month ending March 20.

Ross, Clare, Michigan, ; City Clerk. Mairch 17th, 1896. . Washington Gardner Will be in the Up-, per Peninsula Next Week. The Republican committee had engaged the opera house and expected to secure Hon. Washington Gardner, secretary of state, for a speech in Clare on Friday evening next, but the plan has of necessity been abandoned. Mr. Gardner wired the committee that he will be in Negaunee April 3; had he not been so engaged he would surely have come. This will be a disappointment to all., but it cannot be helped. How to Accumulate Friends. "I know what Pll do," said the candidate. 'Til lay in a big supply of plug tobacco, and every time I meet one of the hayseeds, I'll offer him a chew.,' "You will do nothing of the sort,)J said his manager. "You will go out j without a bit and borrow a chew from-:' every man you meet. Haven't you got sense enough to know that the mar* you are under obligations to alwayjf feels warmer noward'you than the raai* you€aVe done a favor?"
