mammmmm* mm v^ Sentinel. BJstablished 1878. GLARE, MICHIGAN, FRIDAY MORNING, AUGUST ,12 1910. New Series: Vol.18, N©. S& * <$• CLERK OF GRANT MANDAMUSED. Old Ann Arbor Bonds Come to the Front Again for Payment. DEMAND T01eE RECORDS. Attorney for Bond Holders Here this Week to Look Them Over. The bonds issued by towmsbips in the vicinity of Olare to aid in the construction of the Ann Arbor railroad come up periodically for notice. This time it is because of a suit in tbe U. S. District Court for the eastern disrict of Michigan, northern divis- son, before Judge Swan, to compel the payment of bonds for 515,000, issued by Grant township in 1885, witb $30,000 of accrued interest. These bonds fell due in 1906, but no payment, either of principal or interest, has ever been made ou them, the reason generally assigned being that the railroad did not keep faith with the township. Tbe understanding at the time the bonds were given was that the road was to be extended on north by way of Dover. Also, in tbe case of Olare, local debts to the a- mount of 830,000 were incurred in the construction of tbe road which the company never paid, but is still owing. Parties in Maine have secured some of the bonds, claiming to be innocent purchasers, as tbe coupone had been detached to make it appear that tbey had been paid and the bonds valuable, and tbey have brought suit as stated above through Beach, O'Keefe and Rockworth of Saginaw. They claim to hold 13 of the 15 bonds of $1,000 each, most of whioh tbey admit they bought for $75 apiece, whioh rather nullifies their claim as innocent buyers. It looks more like a Claim agent's speculation. Frank O. Furington of Maine, representing the bond interests, was in tbe city Monday, and had a conference with interested parties with a view to effecting a settlement. This failing, he went to Mt. Pleasant and sncured from Judge Dodds a mandamus directing Olerk Daniel E. , Mater of Grant township to appear before him at Harrison, August 17, and show cause why he should not produce me records of the township for Mr, Purington's examination. The municipality of Olare is financially interested to the extent of fourteen forty-fourths of the indebtedness, as that was Clare's proportion of assets and liabilities when the oity was detached from the township. P IN POLICE COURT Cases of Dynamiting and Larceny before Judge Maynard Al Harris employed on a section crew near Temple was brought before Justice of the Peace A. E. Maynard Thursday on^a charge of having taken feed from an Ann Arbor boxcar at Temple. He pleaded guilty and was fined S10 and costs. Court was ad- journd in tbe case until Aug. 25 to allow the offender a chance to raise the money. July 17 the Newton dam in Hatton towuship was blown out by a charge of dynamite. Sheriff Sunday's investigation directed suspicion toward Roy and Ed CoffelI,whomhe succeeded in locating last week at Lansing. As the offence appeared to involve a violation of the state game laws, Deputy Game Warden Petitt went to Lansing Friday and brought back the two young men to Harrison. Saturday they were arraigned before Justice Maynard. -Dynamiting is now a felony, and bonds were fixed at S§50 each for their appearance at the September term of circuit court. Becker-Fick. Wm. Becker and Mrs. Marie Fick, hotb of Olare, Were married Friday afternoon, the 5th, at Midland, Mich., by the Rev. John Lowe, formerly of Olare. After the ceremony they went to Saginaw for a few days, returning to Olare Monday, where they will make their home on their farm just east of town. Mr. and Mrs. Becker have lived in Clare for some time and are well and favorably known. Their many friends join in extending congratulations and good wishes. STANDS FOR RE-ELECTION Hon. Geo. J. Gummins Out For Stacc Represenatitve It has been generally understood that Geo. J. Cummins of Harrison was entitled to a second term as representative in th8 state legislature for the district embracing Olare, Gladwin, and Roscommon counties, and that he was willing to go back, if his work has been satisfactory to his party associates. Although his petitions are being circulated he has not made any act- tive move toward retfomination until this week. Rumors that there was a gentleman in Roscommon hankering for the job, and that there was some one even nearer home desirous of donning the toga, have Btarted Mr. Cummins out to.look the field over and warn off trespassers. Mr. Onmmins' friends claim for him that while he did not take the legislature in hand and tell it what to do, nor have his hand in all the law making pies, he made a good showing for a first term and is entitled to repeat. Hia familiarity with the state constitution, his legal training and his general experience make him, they claim, especially well adapted to help formulate the statutes. His relations with fellow-legislators at the last session were such as to give him influence in the work of a second term. Mr. Cummins bas been identified with the interests of Olare county for a good many years, has aided in its development, and so far as this section of the state may need legislative aid is disposed to forward the interests of his district. . So far as signs now show there is not much doubt that Mr. Cummins will be returned to tbe legislature, but with some opposition. THE TRI-STATE PICNIC. A Large Attendance at Harrison if Weather-man Smiles. One year ago there was held at Harrison tbe first reunion and picnic of the Ohio-Indiana Association, comprising immigrants from those two states. While they are all right in a way and good states, still "there are others". It was felt that Michigan should be included, hence the society was given a broader basis and this is the first meetingof the new organization. L. W. Sunday is presidentand Asa Aldrich secretary and they are leaving no stone unturned to make the meeting a great success. A special train will be run from Clare and we understand there is some talk among the buisness men here of closing up that day and everybody going. Below we give the program;— 10:30 A. M.

Archibald Shipway of Calvary Memorial Church, Saginaw, which, be has accepted, and purposes to commences his ministry here the first Sunday in September.. Mr. Shipway was born in London, England, Sept, 15th, 1879, and received his education at the Latymer school, Hammersmith, a suburb of London, later taking a four years' course at Cusaok's Training College. He was then engaged in business for two years. During this time he occupied the Sundays in preaching at various Congregational churches in the country, to which he was sent as a supply. He then accepted a position as secretary of Y. M. O, A. work to which he devoted bis whole time with the exeptiou of Sundays. In 1902 he was given a call to become pastor of Half Acres Congregational Church, Scarborough. In 1905, he married Elizabeth Brain of Castleford. The same year he accepted an invitation to become the assisBtant minister of Spring and Welholme Congregational Oburch, Grimsby. In 1908 Mr. and Mrs Shipway came to this country and for the past two years he bas supplied different cburobes, waiting until an opening should occur where he would be able to be most at borne and consequently of greateslrfletyice.. He served a temporary engagement at Wolverine for 10 weeks, at the end of which time a local paper said, "■Mr. Shipway came to ue direct from England and some of* his ways were new to us, but with his bright, cheerful,energetic nature and scholarlyser- mons sooi< worked his way into the 3:30 P.

S, Dorsey tbat he is a candidate for county treasurer of Clare county, but his petitions are being circulated for nom- ination on the republican ticket and are being readily signed by his many friends throughout the county. Mr. Dorsey has had considerable experience in county affairs, is courteous and painstakng, and is well liked as a county official. He was affections of nearJy every one of his congregation who are sorry to bave him leave. In the matter of his reverence for deviue worship, and the quality of his sermons, Wolverine has been especially favored by his presence. His thoughts were always educational, uplifting, brimful of suggestions for tbe pilgrim along the way, showing study in preparotion, and were apprciatiated by the large congregations gatbered to hear him Sunday after Sunday." Mr. Shipway expresses the hope that he will find tbe people of Clare as friendly as he has been led to be- leive. As tbe servant of a Great Master, he canjbut do his best in cooperation witb bis people and leave results in His hands. X CONGRESSMAN C. E.

Sp far we have heard of no opposition to Mr. Dorsey.and if he is nominated and elected to the place, as now seems to be conceded, the citizens at large can rest assured that the county strong box will be well guarded, and the funds accurately aocounted for. P NEAR-BY NEIGHBORS. MADE eOOD IMPRESSION. His Speech Much Along Lines Reported in Daily Press. About 200 people gathered at the city park yesterday afternoon to greet Congressman Townsend. While tbe number was not large, still it was a representative gathering, farmers coming from' the surrounding country to hear the distinguished speaker. The hour of the day was unfortunate, and few business men could attend. As tbe meeting was held juBt on the eve of our going to press, only a brief notice can be given in this issue; but a fuller report will appear next week. J. F. Tatman presided and said that some time ago he thought that was the only Townsend man in Clare, but now there seemed to be plenty of them.

Fire from Gasoline Stove tne Valley Bakery in Those are not boxing gloves on George Valley's hands and he did not recently arrive from Reno, either. It is no laughing matter, in one sense, and in another, it is. The laugh is on George's part to think he got out of it as well as be did. It hipyened this way; George Val ley operates a neat little bakery and lunch room on Fourth street just east of the Citizens State Bank. Wednes' day morning, he was working in the front of his . shop when he noticed fire around his gasoline stove in the kitchen, due evidently tp oil leaking from the supply tank. The flame was already running up the wall. He bethought him of tbe reserve can of gasoline in the back part of the store and did the nervy act of seizing it and attemting to carry it from the room. The flame ran up the can and over his hands, and he let go. Soon, the flames were running all over the kitchen floor. Just then the fire alarm sounded and soon there were plenty of hands to extinguish the fire. Water was not needed, but several dry fire-extinguishers were quickly produced from different places. It took only one to put out the fire, and then Mr. Valley remembered tbat he had an extiguisher hanging rigbt by the stove, but in his confusion he did not think to use it. The damage to propery was trifling. Mr. Valley will have some pretty sore hands for days to come, but he may well congratulate himself that the result was not more serious.
