THE NORTHERN TRIBTJNlfi, NOVEMBER 18, 1882.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 18. 1882.

A new postofflce called Rondo has been
established in this county.
Yesterday was in delightful contrast
witn the dark and stormy day of Thurs
day. Thursday was about as disagreeable a
day as is ever experienced; snowing and
blowing all day.
Diphtheria is prevalent in some por
tions of the state and in some cases
threatens to become epidemic.
The mill of the Cheboygan Lumber
company shut down Thursday night
after a very suscessf ul season's sawing.
The sacred concert at the town hall
last Sunday evening drew a large at
tendance. The music was very enjoya

the stump for Sheriff of Mackinac county
and was elected.

Work at the salt well has been pro

although the rock -has not stood up as
well as it did last week. They intend
to settle the question as to salt or no
salt at this attempt if possible.
A Cherokee Indian is editiug a paper
in the Indian Territory. As his trusty
ritle stands in a corner of his sanctum,
it may be inferred that he knows all
about "leaded matter" and keeps, no
doubt, a number of "slugs" on hand.

Services at the Congregational church
on Sabbath next at 10:30 o'clock in the
morning and at 7 o'clock in the evening.
In the morning will be given the second
discourse on "Christian Watchfulness."
In the evening the sixth lecture in the
course to young people. Subject, "En
ergy of Character.''
The rumor that John Kelly, of Tam
many fame, instigated the burning of
the Park Theater, because he felt jealous
of Mrs. Langtry's reputation as a pro
fessional beauty, is a base slander. The
leaders of the Democratic party have
enough to bear without laying that crime
at the door of either John Kellv or the
beautiful Sammy" Tilden.
If there is one thing more than another
that will make a young man in a dainty
suit of clothes, lavender kids, hair parted
in the middle, and a big button-hole
bouquet, come down to hard pan, and as
near common sense as he can get with
out previous preparations or adaptability
it is to have a sensible woman tell him
he ought to have been born a girl. Nuff
Arrangements have been made for a
union Thanksgiving service at the
Methodist church. Dr. Hartley of the
Congregational church, will preach the
sermon. Our citizens should at least
abstain from business long enough to
respect the proclamation of the President,
and of our own Governor, and participate
in this union service on Thanksgiving
Day, the last day of this month.
We have it from a pretty reliable
Hource that a corps of engineers com
menced this week surveying a route for
a railroad down the shore to Alpena, and
that before the first of next April there
will be a force of 1,500 men at work
grading the road bed between that place
and Cheboygan. We trust the statement
may be true, if so we may expect an
other road to Cheboygan inside of a
Rev. Dr. Scudder, of Brooklyn, N. Y
has been called to a Chicago pulpit. The
worst verdict yet pronounced upon Brook
lyn appears in his letter of resignation.
He says, "I feel unable to end ure the
pressure of work here, the burden is too
heavy. I have longed and prayed for
relief, ahd now that it has come I ought
not to decline it, etc." A clergyman who
after a long experience in Brooklyn
looks upon a conflict with win in Chicago
in the light of a relief and an easier flit
nation, pays a tribute to Brooklyn's wick
edness that surpasses in eloquence all
the rhetorical resources of the Brooklyn

J. Jackson & Son are making prepara
tions for large lumbering operations in
this section. The tug Cygnet took up a
lighter load of supplies for them to Mul
let lake yesterday.
A lighter loaded with hay for S, Baker
& Son, sunk above the locks Thursday
night, and being so badly water soaked
the most of it was allowed to float down
the river and out into the lake.
Messrs, Andrew Marry, John Murry
and Fred C. Rich, have leased J. N. Per
ry's foundry and machine shop, and will
carry on the business in all Its branches
under the firm name of Murry & Rich.
They are practical mechanics of long
experience and guarantee satisfaction.
The specimen suit for the uniform of
the Cheboygan cornet band was placed
in the window of H. J. Miner's store
yesterday afternoon where it shows for
itself. The boys, when arrayed in t hat
style, will make a flue appearance.
There is a considerable sum of money
yet needed to pay for the uniforms, to
raise which a subscription paper is being
circulated. The boys are deserving of
liberal subscriptions and we trust that
all will respond as liberally as possible
to their call.
The Aurora last evening attracted
much attention. It was pronounced by
many as the most magnificent auroral
display they had ever seen. What made
it more remarkable was the varied col
ors displayed and the rapid changes. At
one time the red white and blue was
distinctly seen; at another all the colors
of the rainbow. The northern he iveus,
reaching from the east to the west,
would be covered with a crimson glare.
To the superstitious it was portent ions
and we heard some declare that it was
the precursor of some great evil, just
what, they did not pretend to state. At
one time, while display was brightest, a
shooting star appeared and for some
seconds was quite a brilliant part of the
The late Democratic victories, remem
ber, are owing principally to mongrel
tickets, and it remains for 1884 to re
deem the mistakes of 1882. When we
come to look oyer thej political fleld,
there is really nothing strange about
the political defeat in New York. Be
sides the general apathy among the Re
publicans, the oldest and most influen
tial Republican papers were so outspoken
in their criticisms of the way in
which the Republican ticket was nomi
nated, that it amounted to a practical
opposition. In fact, the state went by de
fault, though the Democrats of course
will claim that their suporior manage
ment did it Their story will be short
lived. "The sober second thought" of
the people, will in 1884 consign the
Democratic party to its old hole in the
ground. Our Democratic friends need
not rejoice over what they may regard
as a fatal break in the great Republi
can party. The party which conducted
the war to a successful issue, re-organized
the south, and restored the finances
of the country, will, at the proper time,
reassert her supremacy and regain all
that her enemies now regard as hope
lessly lost. It is a matter of history
that the Democracy never yet had an
opportunity of doing good that it did not
taksome step that balked every fair in
tention. Its leaders never have seem
ed to realize the responsibilities devolv
ing upon them, but rather the kind who
sought the gratification of revenge in
preference to the welfare of the country.
History established the truth of the
above beyond all question. It is also
true that confederate bonds never ap
preciated in value after a Republican
victory, never; but they advanced a fow
notches immediately after the late Dem
ocratic1 victory. Perhaps this may not
mean anything, but straws show which
way the wind currents are moving. We
trust our jubilant Democratic friends
will not forget that it was under Repub
lican rule and management that Uuited
States bonds stand higher than those of
even Great Britain. London papers de
clare this to be a fact, which no living
man can remember to have ever occur
red before of any other country on the
face of the globe. All honor then to the
grand old Republican party, the glory
of its achievements can never fade or
