A Young, Thriving and Progressive Little Place that is K a pi diy Assuming S^etropoiitan Aisrs— ft&any Benefits to be derived Under this Act by Our People. Some three or four weeks ago the idea first originated'in tbe futile brain of a. progressive Clareite to haye this village ' incorporated under a CITY charter. The ball was set a rolling, a special charier- prepared and one day last week was taken to Lansing by C. W. Perry, placed in the bands of Eepresentative Marsh and Senator Prindle for presentation to tbe proper law making powers. These gentlemen placed the bill in the hands'of the committee and a hearing before- the - house was set for Thursday of this week.' On Wednesday, Messrs. C. H. Sutherland, S. C-Kirkbride, D.E- Alward, J.W- Calkins, Will A. Goodman, J. F. Tatman and M. D. Eaton departed for Lansing in order to be present when the bill came, up before the committee, house and senate. A rush of business delayed the ac- .' tion of tbe house until this Friday morni ing, but upon its passage by that august body it was immediately taken to the senate, where the action of the lower house was ratified almost unanimously- The charter divides the'city into three - wards. The first ward i&all that portion of the city lying south -of * Third- street to the county line; the second ward, all that section north of Third street and east of Main street, extending: east 24^/ rods, taking.in'about one-half of James -.
