PUBLISHED ETERY FRIDAY AT Owwa. Mich. Ruljscript.on Price I , , i 50 '-Months. . , , , , 76c It is said Speaker Keifer was w!nfk(l four times during the war. T'.e Republicans elected their can didate for mayor in Ponsacola, Flori da by a majority of 272 votes last Several newspapers at Indianapolis h rr been indicted for publishing lottery advertisements, and there are wreral in Michigan that ought to be. The opponents of railroad mo nopoly, if any one can tell just what that is, are organizing leagues in eerv important town in the state of Kew York. The bourbon press are severely cising Speaker Keifer's appoint ments on the committees. Pretty food evidence that he acted honestly and impartially. The first through train on the bothern Pacific railroad, between lan Francisco and New Orleans, left tSe former place on the morning of December 30th. It is said the friends of Senator Iygan are trying to buy a control ing interest in the Chicago Tribune. Mr. Mid ill says they have not succeeded ti 1 we hope they will not succeed. The Ann Arbor Courier says: Mr. R. A. Beal has in hre posses ef-n a brick -from the first brick barn erer built in this country. The barn stood on Washington's premises at alt. Vernon, and the bricks used for fts erection were imported. The new Chinese minister was re ceived by President Arthur at six o'cloek on Saturday evening with the tiuil ceremonies. This Minister has Wrought his wife with him. She is aid to be the first Chinese lady of mnkfo visit the United States. It may be of interest to such of ir farmers as are holding their wheat lor higher prices, to learn that the storehouses at the Black Sea ports aow contain three million quarters of wheat ready for exportation, and that this amount is being rapidly augment d. We find in the Lansing Republi can a long letter from John H Fos cr, of Williamston, in which he completely exhonorates Gov. Jerome from the charges of snobbishness, tic, made against him after the York town splurge. Foster is a died in the wool democrat. At a late public meeting of the in habitants of Bismark, held on the rjth ult., resolutions were almost unanimously adopted favoring a di vision of the Territory of Dakota; the southern part to tie, at once, ad wilted as a State. We think that is Just what ought to be done. Watterson, of the Courier-Journal, Who has been shouting for "a tariff for revenue only' is beginning to hedge. He now wants "a tariff for revenue, with incidental protection." And they will all have to advocate a protective tariff. Free trade is so anti-American that no party can live that endorses it. At this writing, January 2d, indi cations seem to point to the selection wt Hon. Wm. E. Chandler, of New Hampshire, for Secretrry of the Kavy. We hope he will be given a Cabinet appointment, for, in the Re public, there does not live a man With higher qualifications or one bore deserving official recognition. The House committee on Elec tions, by working through the holi 4ay recess, have completed the tak ing and examination of testimony in the cases of Anderson vs. Reed, 1st district of Maine; Buchanan vs Manning, 2d district of Mississippi; ttid Bisbee vs. Tulley, 2d district of Florida; and are to report at once. The Post and Tribune states the receipts of grain in Detroit for the year 1881 as follows: Flour, 447, 909 barrels; wheat, 5,807,073 bushels, corn, 790,357 bushels; oats, 727,306 Jlushels, and barley 338,564 bushels. Id the year 1880 the receipts were: Flour, 341,187 barrels; wheat, 9,938, 960 bushels; corn, 427,976 bushels; oats, 507,416 bushels; barley, 290,000 bushels. Tbe question is not, is a given man a ttalwart or a half-breed, but is he a Republican! If the quesiion is an swered in the affirmative and he is honest and capable, the question of how he voted at the Chicago con vection, is of no earthly account, and we are pleased to notice in Pres ident Arthur a disposition to ignore that question entirely, and suggests whether the Tribune would not do well to say no more about the 306, and Grantism and Hayesism or Greeleyism. Let the dead bury their own dead, while we as living Repub licans grapple with the live issues of the day, it our idea of policy. Fanner' Inntltutes, lSsi. The series of iustiiutes under the direction of the state boord of agri culture are announced to be held at the following times and places: Jan uary 17 and 1 3, at Cass opoUt, Cass county J mu.iry 19 and 20, at Leslie, Ingham county; January 24 and 25. at Berlin. Ottawa county, January 26 and 27, at Greenville, Montcalm county, and 30 and 31, at Lapeer; February 2 and 3, at Macon, Lenawee county. The Sturgis Times learns that "R. H. Morrison, the defaulting treasurer of the Grand Lodge and Encamp ment of Odd Fellows of Michigan, who was tried in Lansing and held for several months in charge of the under sheriff, has married the daughter of a wealthy clergyman of Boston." We don't believe the yarn. The last we heard of Morrison he was said to be in prison in Iowa; besides the daughters of wealthy Massa chusetts clergymen are not fools. Mr. Halstead, of the Cincinnati Commercial, complains that there are American citizens so degraded as to seek an opportunity to shake hands with the murderer of President Gar field. We suppose there were patri ots in Revolutionary days that de sired to shake hands with the spy Andre and the traitor Arnold, but Washington hung the first, and would the latter if he could have caught him, despite this fact, and we guess the same fate awaits Guiteau. The Frankfort Express of the 28th of December says: Mr. Gordon T. Johnson, of Joy field, returned from Toledo this morning, where he has been visiting relatives, some of whom are interest ed in the new railroad from Toledo to Frankfort. They say they will send a corps of engineers through in March to re-survey the route, and in all probability work will commence immediately after. Mr. Johnston has been sent here to see what arrange ments ran be made for right of wayr and what facilities there are to get out R.R. ties along the route. Gov. Long has summarily dismiss ed twenty members of the 9th regi ment Massachusetts State troops for disorderly conduct at Richmond, Va., during their trip to Yorktown. It is rumored that some of "the Michigan boys" were not altogether sober, sedate representatives of their constituents during the same trip, and ought to be held to account for their conduct, especially at a certain eating house. But then madame dame rumor is not always the best authority, and we hope is not entire ly t utsworthy in this matter. Another Republican defaulter has turned up in Ohio. But perhaps it is scarcely worth while to attempt to keep track of the almost innumera ble gang of Republican thieves. Lansing Journal. It may e true that there is a Re publican defaulter in Ohio, though we have seen no other notice of the fact. But, despite the talk of the Journal about "the almost innumer able gang of Republican thieves," we affirm our ability to pen the names of more Democratic defaulters In Ohio, in the past five years, than the Journal can name Republicans in the entire nation. We are speaking now of public officers of all grades, but not of rascals in private life, as for these political parties, as such, art in no way responsible. Despite the earnest efforts of Sena tor Vest to prevent its formation, a special committee of the Senate has been formed with Senator Hoar, of Massachusetts, as chairman on "the political rights of woman." Mr. Vest in opposing the resolution for the appointment of this committee was leading a forlorn hope, and seemed to know it for he endeavored to be facetious about it. He asked "why should not the women's peti tion be referred to the committee on Revolutionary claims?" "Practical ly," he said, "it had had nothing to do for the last thirty years, and as the proposition, in his opinion would be revolutionary, the com miltee on Revolutionary claims he thought the most appropriate to con sider the subject." Bat the Senate could not so see it and the committee was ordered. During the delivery of Talmage's sermon on "Newspapers," he said: 'Do not take the idea so prevalent that when a man can do nothing else he can edit a newspaper. If you cannot climb the hill back of your house you had better not try the sides of the Materhorn. If you can not navigate a sloop up the North river you had better not try to en gineer the Great Eastern over to Liverpool. To publish a newspaper requires the skill, the precision, the vigilance, the strategy, the boldness of a commander-in-chief; to edit a newspaper one needs to be a states man, an essayist, a geographer, a statistician, and so far as all acquisi tion is concerned, an encyclopedia To man and propel a newspaper re quires more qualities than any other business on earth." The Lansing Journal says "the 'hard money' and 'honest money' cry whi h was howled so lustily two or three years ago, now proves to be only a cry for National Bank notes as money, and the perpetuation of the national debt," and quotes, on the same page, from an article in the N Y. Sun to prove the statement true The "hard money" and "honest money" party was the Republican party. Perhaps the Journal can tell us when the Sun was the organ, or an organ of the Republican party, and just at what time it had authority to speak for that party. We had sup posed the Sun to be a simon pure ex ponent of the Journal's kind of modern, bourbon Democracy, and think we were not mistaken. This being true let the Journal say the "hard money" and "honest" etc wing of the Democratic party favors perpetuation of the national debt, and we think it would tell the truth. But when it charges these things to the Republican party it simply as the payment of $100,000,000 of the debt, by the Republican, national administration in the past year and nearly 5o per cent of the debt, the cost of a Democratic rebellion, in the past sixteen years, fully attests. Current Mention. B. H. Brewster is on duty as at torney general. The Mormon president Taylor now occupies Brigham Young's fine large house.

Jesse Spaulding is suspected of an intention to make the Chicago col lectorship the preliminary step to the senate. Mrs. Mahone takes great interest in politics, and from being a rabid Democrat has become an ardent Re publican.
