RIO JANEIRO, Jwu 14.--The lr a L
of the many official functions to be
given in honor of the visiting Amer
ican naval officers during their stay
here took place yesterday.
( In the afternoon the American offi
cers went out to Petropolis, the home
of the diplomatic corps, some 22 miles
distant from the capital. They were
accompanied by many high Brazilian

afterward by the ambassador himself.
The party then proceeded to the resi

I MIKES EXCUSES
--
FAILURE TO ESTABLISH THREE
' RECEYVING BTATIONS, NOT
CONCERN’S FAULT.
Alex. L- McLeod, president of the
Detroit Reduction Cos, will send a
km* communication to the council
this evening, explaining that the fail
ure of the concern to establish three
receiving stations, as called for in the
contract with the city, was the result
Os delay in signing the contract by a
former controller and the Intervention
of the courts by Injunction. A por
tion of the communication follows:
‘ are prepared to show that it Is
an actual economy on the part of the
city to have and maintain but one load
ing station rather than two or more
At the present time fully 75 per cent
of the garbage collected is naturally
tributary to the Twenty-fourth-st. sta
tion, where it Is now received. We
have extensive barns there, which we
are leasing to the city under ex)
tremely advantageous terms to it. If
At any time additional receiving sta
tions are constructed, it will become
accessary for the city to build or
rent, and maintain barns at these
points. We are also prepared to show
that, as a matter of fact, instead of
having cost the city o,ne-tenth of the
expense of its collection for the past
year, by reason of hauling to one sta
tion instead of three, it has not cost K
one cent additional: but, on the con
trary, the city has actually saved
money thereby.
* general way, we beg to sub
mit that the whole plan or idea of
the collection of garbage by the mu
nicipality is for the health, comfort
and convenience of its citizens. If.
for the general good, it Is absolutely
necessary that some hardship be In
flicted upon the cltlsens of some par
ticular locality, then as a part of our
scheme at government It is necessary
for those citizens to submit to this
hardship, as what ts sought to be ae
compliahed .ts the greatest good tni
the greatest number. If, however, such
a burden as the establishment of ad
dition*! garbage receiving stations, is
not absolutely necessary for the gen
eral good, then this hardship should
not be Imposed upon the citizens of
any locality

place in the beautiful Whitney man
sion on Wood wards ve., which lias
been the scene of some of the most
brilliant social affairs ever known lu

ing daughter is hailed with delight by
their hundreds of friends in the city
who have heretofore enjoyed the hos
pitality of the Whitney home.

front hall being banked with palms
and fernß, the guests to be received at
the side entrance.

Whttnev, Mrs. Whitney Hoff and Miss
Whitney Hoff. Mrs. Whitney wears
while satin. Miss Hoff a girlish gown

Miss Hoff lived in Detroit until about
nine years of age when she went to
live in Paris. Her education has been
carefully watched by her mother, she
receiving all of her instruction from
private tutors, although she attended
the well-known school of Mme. Yeat
man in Paris. She is quite a linguist,
speaking several languages fluently,
but devotes the greater part of her
time to music. The piano and harp

ters of the continent and enjoy the
privileges of such well-known points

the French custom, has never been
formally received into society, nor
given the privileges enjoyed by Amer
ican young women.

MUlen, the famous violinist, and

FORMER S CRITICISM OF MANNER
OF BUYING COUNTY BONDS
DRAWS SARCASTIC REPLY
FROM DIMINUTIVE AUDITOR.
A meeting of the Wayne county
sinking fund commission, which is
composed of the auditors, Judge Dur
lee and County Tr. usurer Forbes
Robertson, wa» held Tuesday morn
ing, and two offers were. received
from brok» rs anxious mj sell to the
commission county bonus at I*7 3-4.
The meeting was called chiefly be
cause County Treasurer Robertson
had charged the commission with fa
voritism In buying the bon is quietly
from certain dealers without giving
the others a chance to make an offer.
He claimed that W. E. Moss & Cos.,
had sold to the cornmisrlon 2& onus
at par, whereas the bonds were free
ly offered on Griswold-st. at more than
two points less.
In Tuesday morning’s meeting. Mr.
Robertson was made the target for
the sarcasm of the other members,
particularly Auditor Christian. When
offers were received from Matthew
Finn A Cos. and the Bumpus Stevens
Cos., to sell bonds at 97 ?-4, Mr. Rob
ertson moved that the offers be laid
on the table for a week, so that other
broker* emtM- be nottfl«4 -ts- submit
bids. Mr. Christian seconded Mr.
Robertson's motion, in order he ex
! plained, "that Mr. Robertson could
have a chance to notify his friends
that the county would buy a few
bonds.” adding, “of course, I have no
friends in the business, and I don’t
care who gets them, but I don’t want
Mr. Robertson's friends to be slight
ed."
Mr. Robertson pronounced Mr.
Christian's talk "rot and foollshm
"When the first five bonds were
bought for $5,03194, I protested
against the methods used.” says Mr.
Robertson. "No one kne*r that bonds
were to be bought back by the com
mission except the auditors and the
broker. I made a motion that here
after when the sinking fund commis
sion Is in the market foil bonds, that
It advertise for bids and buy the
bonds as cheaply as possible. We
must advertise for any little bit of
printing, why not for transactions
covering thousands of dollars?
“The county has lost about S9OO on
the purchase of five bonds in Decem
ber and 25 in January at par. I will
not sit with the other members of the
commission if such methods are to
continue.”
WARNER TO SPEAK
TO BRICKLAYERS
GOVERNOR WILL MAKE PRINCI
PAL ADDRESS AT DELEGATES’
BANQUET TUESDAY NIGHT.
Gov. Warner will be the principal
speaker at the banquet of the Brick
layers' and Masons' International
union in Harmonie hali, Wednesday
evening. J. Walter Dohany will act
as toastmaster. The list of speakers
Is not yet complete.
There was no formal session Tues
day morning, the delegates merely as
sembling Informally In the Light
Infantry armory to visit. The com
mittees were organized and will com
mence their deliberations during tire
afternoon.
Detroit bricklayers entertained the
delegates to the international union
convention in Bricklayers’ hall. Mon
day night. A strong plea was made
by Thomas R Preece for affiliation
with the American Federation of La
bor The convention cannot orde.-
this, but can merely submit it to a
referendum-vote in the unions. Such a
referendum on this question was de
feated last year.
It was shown by the report of Inter
national Secretary Dobson, read iu *he
afternoon session, that 74 locals had
reduced their hours from nine to
eight, while 470 locals had gained a
wage increase of two cents per hour.
JUDGE DURFEE JAILS
MAN FOR CONTEMPT
Julius Lochbiler created a scene
In the probate court Tuesday morn
ing. when remanded by Judge Durfce
into the custody of a sheriff and or
dered to jail for contempt.
Lochbiler has been acting as guard
ian for h 1« daughter, who three years
ago was awarded damages against the
D. U. R., for Injuries. The old man
Is alleged to have spent his daugh
ter’s money In paying his own debts,
and be was forced by his bonds
men to make good tbe amount,
which he did by mortgaging his prop
erty. He was recently served with a
notice by his bondsmen that they
would no longer serve, and this
coupled with the fact that he was or
dered by Judge Durfee to file a re
port of his daughter’s estate, led the
old roan to believe he Is being perse
cuted.
He raged about tbe court room, de
claring that he was honest, that he
could receive no Justice, and flatly re
fused to furnish any bonds or file a
report. He was then committed for
contempt.
Suppressed Divorce Suit.
Rut one suppressed divorce suit was
started Tuesday morning, that of Cora
vs. Reuben Woodward.

The trading element on the floor of the
exchange was apparently out of long
stocks at the opening and made an ef
fort to force a further reaction in the
stocks in which there has been an ac
tive speculative interest, some of the
large trader? not only selling stocks
themselves, but giving out selling or

moderately lower levels, but while
their selling was in progrcss*scattered
buying orders combined wit If renewed
bull manipulation absorbed this supply
and started an upturn which was in
full swing as the first hour ended.
The buying of Soo common attracted
general attention and it was consider
