Milan, Not. 17. The aspirants for
the office of postmaster in Milan are
a Treat deal like a lot of heirs work
ing for a share of an estate before the
owner is dead. Our present post
master. Dr. H. J. Hayett, has near
ly a year vet to hold the office, bat
in spite of this the supporters of
Hanna are working with all their
power for the position. G. H. H .
nens, who was postmaster here once
before, is around with a petition.
William Goldsmith also has a peti
tion, and so has Robert Little and a
great many others, whose names are
known, are willing. There are, it
is said, abont twenty-five after it,
bat only boat ten have pot ia an
appearance. The Milan office is a
fourth class office and averages about
$C0O per year as a salary. Twelve
mails a day, six incoming and sis
outgoing, are recorded each day.
Everything will likely be calm
and serene until the location of th
ofliae is settled, when more trouble
will likely arise, as there are a num
ber of places where the postolfice h
been that are not fit places. When
the question as to who will be post
master has been settled the location
of the office will mean a great deal.
The office we have had daring the
past few yeara was the bast that was
ever in Milan. The lock boxes were
of the latest design and everything
modern in every respect.
A quarterly missionary meeting
will be held in Milan Dec. 27.

The M. E. church is making ar

The Bryan Free Silver club of
Milan has received a charter and
will hereafter be known as the One

national silver clubs.
Friday evening a dance was given
at McAfee's in Bowling. There were
about forty couples present, and all
enjoyed themselves very much. Sup

Some one entered the school house
in Black Hawk in District 7 Monday
evening and stole the dipper and
wash basin. There is no clue to tha
perpetrators, but the directors in

Milan town hall Friday evening.
Although the crowd was small all

Hunting is all the rage around
these parts, and the amount of game
that is secured beats everything.
From the small boy to the man, all
come home with game every time
they go out. Last Sunday there was
a great amount of game slaughtered.
Carl Brassel, of Edgington
township, who has been operating a
sw mill for the past four years, was
injured Saturday while sawing wood
for Fred Garnett on the old Weaver
place in Bowling. The fingers on his
rght hand came in contact with the
saw and were badly lacerated. Dr.
Wiggins, of Milan. was called and
found it necesssry to amputate the
mall finger, it being so badly torn.
Miss Carrie Walker, of Milan, was
pleasantly remembered by a aarpris
party at the home of Ed Wangelin
in Bowling, Friday evening.- Miss
Pesrle Bennett invited all the young
folks for miles around, and nearly
all of them responded. Between one
hundred and one hundred and fifty
were present, and the evening was
passed very pleasantly. Sapper was
served and all voted the occasion
would never to be forgotten.
Daring the past week a great
masy events have taken place on the
social side of life. Thursday a dance
was given at the residence of Mr.
and Mrs. J. W. Caldwell, of Rural.
The dance was in honor of McKinley
and liobarts election, and about
twenty-five coup lei responded to the
invitations and spent the eveniog in
dancing. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Woch
ner. Will Caulfield and Thomas
Wynes composed the orchestra. At
12o'clock Mrs. Caldwell served au
elegant sapper, and it was nearly
morn before the guests departed.
Darkness in Milan will soon be a
thing of the past, as work was begun
today setting the posts for street
lamps. The lamps have been given
a thorough test, and their merits are
that they burn less oil than other
lamps; will not go out, but will burn
steady ia a high wind, will extin
guish themselves at a certain hoar,
and they have a neat appearance.
Electric lights, would probably give
better service, but as the town is not
fixed at well financially as to allow
this service, these lamps will fill the
purpose, and if ever a time should
come that a change is needed, it can
be done without extra cost.
R ne, the 5-year-old daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Ash Fits si mm on s, of Milan,
was kicked by a hone Tuesday
evening. She was with one of her
brothers who bad been seat after the
hone, aad as the horse wae not go
ing to suit her she strnek it across
the heels with a switch. The horse
kicked hack and attack her ia tha
fare, the frontal bone being broken
near the left eye, aad at present it is
not known whether the eye can be
saved. Dr. H. J. Iiayett dressed
the wounds, which required several
stitches, and at present the little
one is doing nicely.
The Junior league of tha M. E.
church gava a very pleasant social

The church was decorated with flow

Lillie Ganahl carried tha audience
awav by her recitation. She nor
trajed the different parts of her reci
tation with the ease and grace of a
well trained elocutionist.. She has
wonderful talent for one so
young. After the program the
young ladies served reiresnmen's in
the church parlors, and a neat little
sum was realized lor me society.
EMRICH IS ENRAGED

The definite announcement bv Con
gressman G. W. Prince of his pur
pose to appoint nis nett friend, F.
A. Freer, postmaster at Galeaburg.
has sent Honry Emrich, the defeated
leading opposing aspirant, oil in high
dungeon. Emrich is the editor of the
Plaiudealer of that city, is a tireless
politician, and has been since the
formation of the new Tenth congres
sional district chairman of the re
publican congressional committee.
But he is through now. He will not
play in Congressman Prince's yard
any more. He is out of politics. The
Republican-Register tells about the
"Congressman G. W. Prince gives
authority for the definite announce
ment that he will recommend Frank
A. ' Freer for the Galesburg post
master the next four years. Who
ever Mr. Prince recommends is very
likely to be appointed, so that so far
as the postofiice here is eoncerned,
there will be no further controversy.
It has been known for several days
that the indications were favorable
to Mr. Freer. Mr. Prince further
saye that regarding the deputy pott
master no decision' has yet been
reached. It ia not bis business to
appoint deputies. He claims that
Mr. Freer has this to do. Mr. Freer
authorizes the statement that he has
not yet selected a deputy. The ap
pointment has created a little ruc
tion in political circles. M O
Williamson, the county clerk, Satur
day informed Mr. Prince that he had
not been and would not be a candi
date. Thia narrowed the contest
down to Henry Emrich, of the Plain
dealer, and Mr. Freer. Mr. Emrich
feels that the sudden appointment of
Mr. Freer does him an injustice, as
he had been given to understand
that he would be given an opportu
nity to present hie claims aad had
taken other steps to strengthen his
candidacy. As it is, he has had no
chance tc present certain important
letters and other recommendations
or properly to put his arguments to
the congressman. Report has it that
Mr. Emrich from now on is out of
politics. He has been a staunch
worker tor Mr. Prince and an active
republican, and as a member of the
congressional committee has done
some excellent service ia the district.
The friends of Mr. Emrich share his
disappointment with him."
