We desire to record our praise and gratitude to the. Eepublican officials of Clare county for the economical, able and honest discharge of the duties of their several positions, and we pledge tbe nominees at this convention to the same careful and wise conduct of the people's business. 0. Mell Btjell ) 0. H, Kleinek [-Com.

But, of course, from sheer force of habit the opposition in convention today will "denounce" and Democratic organs will sneer at all Eepublicans and impute the motives of all men who are not Democrats and thus seek to degrade American politics in accordance with their Anti-eyekything campaign, but in November the people will again rise in their might and swat the maliners of the Republican party into silence. The Sentinel will 'have more to say of the candidates in subsequent issues.

The trial of Anna Curtis ended late last Saturday afternoon when the jury returned a verdict of "not guilty". In many respects it was one of the most important cases ever tried in the courts of Clare county. Forty-five jurors were examined before the necessary twelve for the jury were found. During the trial twenty-one witnesses were on the stand and five attorneys, three for the defense and two for the prosecution, carefully guarded the interest respectively of the defendant and the people. The case was very ably presented for the people. Very carefully were the interest of the respondent guarded. Prosecuting Attorney G. J. Cummins, undoubtedly "made the plea of his life" in his final presentation of the case to the jury. In fact he deserves great credit for the manner in which he has conducted the entire case and Clare county may well repose confidence in her prosecuting attorney. He was very ably supported by Attorney A. J. Lacv, who also made a strong plea in dissecting the evidence before the jury. The three attorney-" for the defense, H. A. Sanford, John yuinn and W. P. Oorbett, permitted no point from their client to escape the notice of the jury. They continually kept prominent the idea that the respondent was only a little innocent girl'under fourteen years of age and therefore presumptatively under the law incapable of forming the intent of commlting the crime charge. Thus they succeeded skill fully in making tbe prosecution, ere they could hope for conviction, prove not only tbe crime, but also the "capability of forming the inteat" of that crime and so successful were they in their endeavors to affirm the incapability of their client to form such an intent that no question seems to have arisen in the minds of the jurors as to the verdict to be rendered as it took them only forty-five minutes to decide a case that had ocsupied very nearly a week in the course ot trial. In his charge to the jury Judge* Dodds clearly defined the law in the- case with reference to the degrees' of murder. In fact, throughout tbe en-- tire trial, he sustained the reputation' he has in his circuit for fairness and; ability to grasp the vital points in' volved. The trial was unique. But two or three similar cases where such a charge as the one in this case was laid against one so young, are on record in the United States. A considerable sum of money has been spent by the county but still the person guilty of the murder of the innocent babe (for somebody certainly is guilty) has not been brought to justice and prooably never will. But at least the officials have done their duty and the people are rejoiced in seeing that as far as possible their elected servants do discharge the duties of their offices. On September *22nd Evart will vote on the question of bonding for 810,000 for the construction of a sewerage system.
