Miss -Emma Kirkbride, accompanied by her niece, Miss Nellie Waite, and nephew, Master Carlton K. Waite, of Minneapolis, Minn., are guests atthe home of Miss K's brother, the. postmaster. Wm. Giberson, a well known business man of Clare in the days of lumbering, and postmaster during President Cleveland's first term, is calling upon his numerous friends here today. Mr. Giberson now resides in Saginaw. Last Svtnday evening one Win. H. Scott was arrested by Under-sheriff Welch, charged with an assault upon a number of girls. He appeared before Justice Carpenter this morning, paid the costs amounting to $20, and was discharged. —" Angus Stanton, a Mt. Pleasant upholsterer, was doing work in this city last week, and Mrs. A. Van Brunt and other parties charge that his work was not tip to specifications. On Monday morning Marshal Bobinson went to the -hub, arrested\ Stanton and brought him before Justice Maynard, upon a charge of obtaining money under false pretenses. His trial is set for today. We will not have much to say about the bali game at Clare Tuesday afternoon between Coleman and Shepherd. There is nothing to say so far as Coleman is concerned.

They were accompanied by a party of eighty- six rooters carrying all kinds of noiso making instruments. The entire party returned at six o'clock and quietly slipped away to their several homes. Score: Shepherd, 13; Coleman, 4. We can't see that there is anything to gain by making a longer report of the game.—Coleman Independent. The carnival of crime continues unabated in Clare, and tho officers seem powerless to stop it. Last Saturday night at the hour of twelve, when honest people are resting from their labors, Marshal Bobinson was aroused by a vigorous rap upon his door. He answered the call, to find an enraged citizen of German persuasion. The caller announced that some deep dyed rascal had possessed himself of a large and juicy soup bone which tho owner had' deposited upon the bar of a thirst parlor while he moistened his parched tongue. The great heart of the city's peace officer immediately went out to the unfortunate caller, but upon calm deliberation he felt that before he could safely proceed to the arrest of the bold thief that it would be necessary for him to have an accurate description of said soup bone. Not" having placed any identification mark upon the bone when .purchased, the German felt that he could liaxdly furnish the description desired, arid departed, uttering words of deepest contempt for Michigan's variety of justice. The tale to be told is a sad one. Not because of the fact that.out of eleven successive games the East side mufifers have succeeded in winning their second, but because of the asparstions being cast at an. esteemed citizen. Were the hints of crookedness without foundation, The Courier would rise as One man and hurl baclc the base, insinuations I But dear reader, we must in justice to ourselves and to the unsuspecting citizens of this city, who. have heretofore sworn by, to, for and at Uncle Sams representative, reveal the plain, unvarnished facts regarding the colossal swindle of Wednesday afternoon at the base ball park. To relieve his closest friends of all the embarrassment possible we will proceed at once to the naked truth as revealed since the game, to-wit: 1st—the Blues won; 2d—Manager Enders of the Blues was heard to say before the game that he knew his side would win; 3d, and lastly—The umpire was heard to demand of Chief Booter Alward the balance of his pay, after the game! In the name of all that goes to make up an honest ball game, what more evidence do you want? Samuel C. Kirkbride, ex-mayor, postmaster and prominent citizen, stands -today eonyicted, by. a jury consisting of every honest ball player upon tho west side (and they are all honest) of having made it possible for the East side hot air aggregation to claim a victory. Our duty to the public in revealing the naked truth having been performed, we will now proceed to a discussion of the features of the game: Space will not permit a discussion of all the thrilling scenes enacted, because some of "the"sc ___._. thrilled nurnerous times, but we shall touch lightly upon several of the more prominent., _ When the church and judiciary unites it usually can accomplish results, whether it be in legislation or otherwise. Bev. Potter and Judge Maynard as battery for the east side struck terror "to a few of the unsophisticated west side batters on tho start, and the poor boys didn't recover their nerve during the entire game. However, the losers are not making any apologies for their plain crackers and cheese battery. The record of strike-outs shows the dealers in cucumbers and health food to have been fully up to the professional gentlemen of the Blues. The honOrs for heavy hitting unquestionably belongs to Alderman Ward, Bev. Potter and Mayor Lacy for the Blues, while Clarence Van Brunt, John High and Paul Grieser received the bouquets from the Beds. Some of the aforesaid gentlemen did not hit often, but they hit awfully hard. Elder Woodloek stole a base and caught a fly, which aots even vPaul Grieser and Alderman Bicknell wouldn't'Stoop to; Charlie Calkins and Ted Sutherland made sensational efforts to hit the ball for home runs but the pitchers were so unkind as to refuse to place tho ball in line .yifch their tremendous swings.

The game by innings was as follows : East side 4313300 0 *—14 West side 2.114000 0 1- 9 The score sheet disclosed the fact that both sides played better ball after the players had limbered up, as but four scores were made after the fourth inning. Everybody enjoyed the sport, and but few of-the participants were compelled to remain- in bed the following morning and call in the family physician. The net receipts for the band was $15. Tbe winners are jubilant over the result, while the Beds stand pat upon their right to charge the result to the umpire. At last accounts the postmaster was seriously consider- ing'tbe advisability of removing his flouring mill over into • the second ward. Lambrigger's Zoo, on exhibition in this city on Wednesday artd Thursday, attracted a* large number of people, and tho exhibit proved very pleasing. The specimens of "the ape family, the snakes and the tropical birds are especially rare and worth .many times the price of admission to seo. While driving near the railroad, three miles west of Farwell last Sunday evening, David McAninch, a well known and respected farmer of Surrey townshipp, was thrown from his carriage and instantly killed. The team became frightened at a, hand car, started to run and the buggy struck a stump throwing Mr. McAninch out. 18 Proposition Made by Local Committee to Col. Boynton for Electric Railway Line. Committee Rapidly Completinjr Arrangements tor a big Time on August ig. As noted in these columns last Veek, the. proposition of the committee to give the Grand Bapids Electric Bailway Co. itfe right-of- way through this county in consideration of its line being constructed to Clare, was submitted to Col. Boynton, the president, in writing. No reply has as yet been received from the Colonel other than a telephone message to the Mayor, saying that the proposition was under consideration. Doubtless a reply will be. had before another issue of The Courier. The committee having in hand the preparation of the program for the fourth annual field day of the Clare fire department, report much progress, and. early next week the attractions for the day, together with the prizes .offered will appear upon large bills. Negotiations are now pending with an attraction syndicate for furnishing something entirely new and novel in the way of a free street performance. A ball game between two good nines is in sight, and all the features are about decided upon. The program of street sports will be practically as follows, though the purses have not yet been determine'd: 100 yard dash. Bunning broad jump. Standing broad jump. Bunning high jump. Standing high.jump. Hop, step and jump. Three legged race. Old men's race, (60 yds.) Boys' raco, 75 yds. Pie eating contest. Barrel race." "Water fight". ilSlPlll)!
