He drew up plans f.-r this, and thought
they were so good that capitalists would
be glad to back him. So first ho threw

then came to New York Not a capital

CITY AROUSED OVER SHOOTING.

Jacksov, Mich., Sept. 15. Muttering
have been heard throughout the city that
bode no good for Capt. Blaokmaa of the
Michigan National Guard, who shot and
killed John Eisey, the sexton of St.
Mary's Catholio Churoh.
The people take the position that the
killing was wholly unwarranted. Admit
ting that Eisey raised a gun in a manner
threatening two guardsmen, it is argued
that they easily could have stopped him
from harming them without Capt. Black
An investigation by both local and
State authorities will start to-morrow.
