Randolph—Walker It dosen't require much of an investigation among tbe business places of Clare to learn that, as far as tbis city is concerned, there is no complaint with the way things are moving along this spring. We dont have big factories and industrial enterprises, bat we do have a goodly number of thriving stores and other business places. And we have some fine country al! around us that is developing rapidly. So there is no reason to 1 ok for anything but increasing prosperity. We are fortunate in having merchants who have leaned the secret of growth confidence in the future, and who never sit down to complain of dull tunes hut are constantly a!i\e to the development of new business. Files have also learned the ttie value of advertising, and realize that the readers of a weekh paper are anxious to get hold of the "business news" cf the town. Vour attention is invited to what the merchante have to say in this Easter Dumber of the Sentinei. Last Saturday evening Miss Sarah Randolph of Gilmore Twp. was united j in marriage with Bruce Walker, son of Thos. J. J. Walker of this city, I Justice Thurston tying the knot. They wil! remain here for a short 1 time, then move a few tniiea north, ! wbere he will work a farm this summer. They have the best wishes of friends for their happiness. Troy-WiHett. At the Caple bome in this city on Wednesday of this week, Rev. Lyford joined in marriage Mrs. Ivah L. Troy' sister of Mrs. Caple, to Mr. F.dward Willett of Detroit. Wm. H. Caple acted as best man and Mrs. Josephine Reardon of Midland as bridesmaid Tbeir future home will lu- iii Detroit where Mr. Willett is CONVINCING REPORTS From Other Cities on Municipal Ownership Plan. •no;aged in the ousines- Outrageous. The illinoia Steel Company maintains electric signs over each entrance to its yards tbat flash these questions to ics 20.000 men aa they leave tbeir work both noon and night: "Did booze ever do yon any (rood"? "Did booze ever get yon a better job?" "Did booze ever coutribute- anything to tbe happiness of yonr family." A. O. Fish owns a bouse in theweat part of this city. He has been unfortunate in hie family relations and his bome is broken up. Not finding work in this city, he bas gone into the country in an effort to make a living. In bis absence, as we are informed, vaodais have broken into bis boose, smashing farnitare. deliberately breaking all bis dishes, lamps, etc. and carrying off some things. Anyone guilty of such a performance should be doing service for tbe state. Profitable Socials. Miss Amber Ln.sing who teaches a' the Mi Kinlev had a box social March 'Ji that netted Sla ' 0. One previously heir] cleared Slo (lO, so that the school bas s:S4 toward the purchase of an organ. Miss Lansing is to be congratulated on her success and evidently the people of the district appreciate the effort she is making to procure something that wiil be very serviceable for the school. New Firm. N. D. Gover, the hustling Loomis merchant, has associated wjth him in hia business his brother, Harry G. Gover, for some time a teacher in the the Bliss Alger college at Saginaw. The new firm will be known as the "Gover Mercantile Co." and there will doubtless be "something doing" in new lines soon. Words of George E. Ellis, mayor of Grand Rapids, March SO. 1915, in Grand Rapids Herald: "The city of Grand Rapids by its municipal water system is selling water to its citizens cheaper than any city of its class where a pumping system is used. The only city selling cheaper is Reading, Pa , which has a gravity service To the voters ot Grand Rapids on April 5, 1915; Shall the city own and operate its own gas plant'.' Vote "Yes." Signed Geo. E. Ellis, Mayor of Grand Rapids. The citv of Clare should do likewise for city ownership of electric- light plant. From Detroit. News Aprii i, 1H1-". Annual report of cii> of Liverpool. England , fur la! 1 "City ownership of street railways mak'-- b;j sa\ir>gin Liverpool. Fare reduced trom .1.7 cents to J..: cents, ad expenses, interest t,nd taxes paid, and monev left for city treasury despite drain of war. During this jime 1,7"0,000 soldiers were carried free. This city has owned and operated her street cars since 18y7 " Is municipal ownership a failure? Has the water works plant of the city of Clare been a failure? If not, tben let us own our electric light plant. Citizens Committee. The Ladies liiioii ou Friday of last week met at the home of Mrs. Ter- williger, Mrs. Dr. Majnard and Mrs. Wm. H. Cole assisting the hostess in entertaining. A goodly number were present including members of tht Guild who were invited guests. It was the regular "Literary" meeting and it was made a "Bird Dav." attair. Mrs. Stone read a paper^showing tr.e objects of the day and,wbat it might accomplish. Mrs. Carl White had a paper on the Useiuluess of the birds to tbe fanner. It would seem indeed that there are ver\ few that are not his friends. Mrs, E. A. White discussed the matter at some length and gave the information of which we suspect lew are aware, that there is a boys' organization here to feed and protect the birds. Instrumental music was furnished by Prof. Peterson, Misses Hilda Bo- gardus and Hallie Kump, aiso Ross Thompson. At the close fine refreshments were served bj the hostesses. New Laundry In Town. Clare is again tbe possessor of a laundry. Several bave made the attempt to run o:.e her- before, but without great success. The last bids fair to make the business go, as be has_ had something like twelve >ears txperience in the business, and is installing up-to-date maeheriners thai wiil tern out work as w. il as it can be done iu the city. F. A Kelley is tne p oprietor, and lie rails from West Branch, and was formerly located in Mt. Pleasant. The \\ ard Building formerly used b_s the Michigan Produce Co. wiil uouse the new firm. Mr. Kelly promises to collect and deliver all work so he will doubtless enjoy a tine patronage at once. Almost A Runaway. Mrs. Elisha White. On arch 31, occurred the death of Mrs. Elisba White, who has been a great sufferer for tbe past two years. Tbe obituary will appear later. A little excitement was created on tbe street last Friday afternoon when a horse driven by Mrs. F. S. Weaver from tbe Brown neighborhood got frightened by an engine and tried to run down Fourth St. As soon as the animal discovered tbat it was not pursued, it suddenly ' noticed that tbe speed limit was be- I ing exceeded, so a halt was ordered . for a renewal of the oxygen supply. r. ire ii. c-L.-,;.., ,,...,, four'h ca', of .!..!■• const ii ui ion wn s milted to tee peop fol lowing, and b- and at the same election a full sec of sta'.i cliicers were chosen, to act under the constitution. In November following, the legislature met, and the whole machinery of a state government was s<t in motion. Stephens T. Mason, secretary cf the territory, and acting governor after the death of Governor Porter, was the governor elect ior lb- new state. But at tbis point occurs a halt in the proceedings, Ohio had raised a question of tic location of her northern boundary, whicb of course would fo-m the southern boundary ol Michigan. This question, must now be- . settled before Michigan could be admitted. The territory of Michigan claimed ' for her southern bour.darv a line run- ; ning east across the peninsula from the extreme southern point ot Lake ! Michigan, extending to the Pennsyl- ! vania line. She claimed this as a I vested right, accruing to her by compact, namely th" ordinance of 17ST, and subsequent recognition by official acts. Ohio on the otner hand claimed that the ordinance of 17s7 Lad been s-jsp. ipjed 0.. the constitution ot the I dined States, and that -congress had the power to change the boundary . It was also claimed that Ohio by her constitution, had desnoed a ditiereiit boundary from that of Michigan, which bad beta recognized by the act of admission as a state. Both claims were airly argued in congress and the committee tc whom they were referred decided unanimously in favor of the claim of Michigan, but in the nurry of other business no action was then taken by congress, and tbe question reaimned ; open till Michigan organized her 1 state government. The territory in dispute waa five miles in width at the : west end, eight miles wide at the eastern end and sixty miles long. i Michigan had had her line surveyed j by James Fulton, who was a compe- ! tent surveyor, and Ohio had em- | ployed a man whose came was Harris to survey her line, so they were called respectively the "Fulton" and the " Harris" lines. The resulting Toledo war and how the dispute wa- tinaily a.:...sled, wili be told in next article. Fords By 1 lie Dozen. I. K. Hampton, agent for the F'ord car. drove through Irom Detroit two weeks .11:0 with six new cars, his first co.isignmeut of the 1H1'> mooeis Monday he received six more by I freight, the first lot ha\ing been disposed ot in a hurry. The Ford seems to retain its popularity as the right car for the ordinary man. And the demand for tbem is as good here as anywhere, judging by the frequent sales. Work at the garage is expected to start up soon. Tuff Hampton, who took a course in vulcanizing at Detroit this winter, will look after that end of the business. Hats On Display.
