Well Known as a Qlarc County Lumberman ■ " _——— * Edmund Hall, the aged lawyer and lumberman, who fought bis way from stone mason and country sohool teacher to a positi6n||s one of Michigan's prominent ojpizens, was at his office in Detroit-as usual Saturday, retiring at night In good spirit! and apparent good health, and was stricken with an attack of heart failure Sunday morning, which ended in his death. Mr. Hall was born May 28th, 1819, at West Cayuga, N.Y., and came to Miohigan in 1833. In the course of the Dexfc 11 years he worked his way through Oberlln college, under disheartening circumstanoes, and began the study of law .in the office of Geo, F. Hand. He was admitted to the bar in 1847 and became one of the highly regarded members of his profession of his home city. He was chosen school inspector in 1859 and before the close of his term in 1863 had the satisfaction of seeing the inauguration of the high sohool, Candies Try a box of Blue Kibbon.

I SHE TO THE CimESS^W THj| ©ITl^SF CIiaiueY - ■-- - - Decoration Day is a day dedicated by a grateful people to the laudible and patriotic purpose of paying tribute to those who sacrificed their best years, health, and even their lives for the welfare of their country and it is fitting that we who live to enjoy the fruitage of their efforts should lay aside the burden of our* labors and strew the graves of our fallen heroes with the first flowers of early springtime. The citizens of Clare will observe this day by appropriate exercise's, and I therefore request tbat during the hours of such exercises, from ten to twelve o'clock in the forenoon, that secular business be suspended and that all of our citizens join in the services of the day. Yours truly, A*rthub J. Lacy, Mayor.... Dated at Clare May 22nd, 1903. (SUA till 'S M arm.

He also carried successfully through the supreme court a test of the law establishing Detroit's public library upon its present statutory and constitutional basis. As a lumberman about 40 years ago, Mr. Hall was heavily interested in the lumbering operation & of Isabella and Clare counties and other sections of the state, with mills at Bay City. He was likewise a stock raiser and possessed fine herds of Jerseys and Shorthorns at his Gib- ralter farm, where he spent the greater part of eaoh summer. Mr. Hall was married to Miss Emeline Cochran In 1840, who died in 1879, and in 1881 to Mrs. Mary H. Vree- land, who survives him, together with two children, Mrs. W. H. Strong and Frederick S. Hall, and five grandchildren. The funeral was held at -three o'clock Tuesday afternoon from 34 Alfred street; burial private. The court convened Tuesday with a fair number of cases on the calendar, but soon melted away until the most important thing was the Gors- line cases which the supreme court had sent back for a new irial. After using the utmost, but unsuccessful effort to get a jury, the court decided it would be better to take ths case to Clare county for trial and therefore granted the change of venue asked for by the defendants. —Times.

From the time of his discharge until 1870 he, with his family resided in Ohio and Wisconsin, and during .the last named year ho located in Midland county where h8 assumed management of A. W.

I. lira Mi Importance of Agitation in its Favor Made Manifest by the Action of the Railroad Companies, Tho determination of the railroad companies to supply themselves with water from the river, presents in a most forcible manner the importance of early aption on the part of the city toward the same end. The loss of the revenue de-rived from furni.s,Mn_? water to the railroad coitap^niea, amounting to about hSfXh, will be seriously felt by the 'public, treasury, and-in itself furnishes the real reason for the meagre water rents collected. The supply at present is unfit for use, and when it is so bad that the railroads refuse to longer .utilize it for steam making purposes it is not surprising that for domegtie use- tbe residents of the city refuse .to receive it. The stream from which the water is taken cannot, be said to be a stream, but simply a drain, which is only suited for sewage. In fact It is generally utilized for that purpose, notwithstanding the ordinance prohibiting stfch use. A pure Water supply is absolutely essential to the public health, and such a supply would in short order place the system upon a self-sustaining basis. The Couribb bas no .suggestions to make as to the operation of such a system, but It is a well known fact that th.8 pumps are now practically worn out, and it is only a question' of a short time when large expenditures must be made for the perpetuation 6f- the system, aiad we 4o not believe that the taxpayers desire tbe expenditure of' further funds for the repairs to the plant as it is now situated.' • ,The railroads are now actively engaged in preparing for supplying themselves with water. Doubtless if they were assured that the city proposed to move quickly in the matter, 'and establish a plant for furnishing pure water', the rentals might .be retained. We respectfully submit tbat 'the council should take early action to learn the wishes of the people of the city. Have you tasted the ico cream so** da to be found at Smith'6 bakery? If rtot, why not?
