EIGHTH YEAR, NO. ago. BRADLEY WILL WIN BY LESS THAN 1,000 VOTES RESULT OF PRIMARIES CLOSE, BUT BRADLEY MEN CONFIDENT —3ANILAC COUNTY LATE WITH 1,000 MAJORITY FOR WARNER. T he Republican primary nomination for governor Is going to go to Dr. Joiner B. Bradley by a very slight plurality according to the latest re turns. At 1 o’clock, Bradley was about bf.u in the lead with lb precincts still to hour from. ' Warner men wore making c.'aims that their man had squeezed thiough, however. “There Is absolutely no chance of DradUy'b defeat," declared J. \V. Me- Cause), Bradley’s representative it* Detroit. “We still nave a lead of nearly a thousand." The precirits still out are in Ne waygo. Cheboygan, Mnrquette, Char levoix. laike and Montmorency coun ties, all of which ary Warner coun ties. The Bradley men do not figure that the pluralities can bo largo enough, however, to overcome the doctor s leud. Some of the counties which weic considered as likely to glvo Warner big pluralities have dropped ofi on the later precincts. Tuscola county gave him but hi! margin, although it had teen claimed by sevsral hundred on the showing of the first precincts Leelanau comity gave Warner only 89 plurality. The greatest surprise was Ban<!ac county. Returns were extremely late In coming in from that county and it finally gave Warner i,005 plurality, which Is pretty nearly unanimous. Brudley men consider this as very suspicious. It now appears that the vote will exceed -OO.OuO for the tbrte Republican candidates. Inasmuch as the vote for secretary of state on the Republican ticket Is usually about 230,000, the primary will show a vot ing strength of two-thirds the party’s Strength. This effectually pro\es the wide spread Interest of the people* In pri mary elections, even though ft must be considered that many Democrats voted for Warner in this primary. Go*-. Warner has acknowledged de feat and Dr. Bradley has announced his intention to ask lie* legislature for a ptato primary law to apply lo all •fade officers. Lieut-Gov. P. H Kelley, who campaigned with Warner, has hasttned to express his desire to woi k with Bradley In the campaign and during the next legislative session. Hoiutlo 8. Earle, who carried only Kalkaska, will resign his orti e as state highway commissioner the first of the year to allow Dr. Brad'ey to make that appointment with others ut the beginning of his term. "I am glad that Warner was defeat ed.” says Earle. The complete return • from the up per peninsula show that Warner car iled the Iron country by a big vote while Bradley captured the .upper counties. The support given the un limited land act by Gov. Warner, in exchange for upper peninsula support of his binder twine bill. Is supposed to have secured this big vote lo* him. Huron county, wheie Warner has big farms, shows a suspiciously large vote. The total vote this year was 3,280, of which Warner got 2,438. while the total Republican vote two years ago was only 2,810. U-- llua—W-owve* - etnrled -» majority of counties, but Bradley car rled the big counties and by large‘ma jorities. Warner only got a trifle more than 60 per cent of the vote in his own county of Oakland. The certain nomination of a govern or by primary takes interest largely away from the state convention of Sept. 29. A state treasurer, auditor general, secretary of state And other officers are to be chosen, but the only big fight seems to be between Palmer, of Manistee, and Simpson, of Berrien over the position of auditor general. Wayne county Republicans have al ready Indorsed Fred Martlndale for secretary of state.

BURGLAR WEARING HENRY RUSSEL’S FEDORA GROSSE POINTE PLUNDERER IDENTIFIED BY ARISTOCRATIC SKY-PIECE—REMARKABLY NON CHALANT CRIME RECOUNTED. A striking Illustration of the old say irg, "It’s an ill wind that brings no body gixid," was furnished, Thursday morning, in the arrest of Joseph la varnee, 23 years old, who says his home Is In Chicago. Lavarnee was picked up as a suspect In connection with the murder of Dan Walser by Patrolmen Ernest? Mack and Fred Bryan, while loitering in the vicinity of the Thomas Automobile works, out Derson-ave., about 3 o'clock a. ni. Later in the morning ho was trans ferred to police headquarters.

Sounds Like Stage Skit. "Where did you get that hat?” de manded Lally. "I bought it last Monday,” nnsweyed the prisoner, and he named a store on Mlehlgan-ave. "You lie, you stole it,” asserted [Ally, as he Jerked the hat from the man’s head and found that it tallied exactly ns to size with the stolen sky piece. "You are the man who broko Into Mr. Russel’s house." Lavarnee then “caved" and con fessed to the Job, making a clear, breast of the whole affair, which ha<f been reported to the police only Wed nesday afternoon. Lavarnee, it appears, found no dlffl culty in gaining entrance. The family oftens leaves the doors unlocked at night, and Sunday night was one of these occasions. All Lavarnee had to do, therefore, was to simply walk in The household w*as asleep; so was the family bulldog, apparently, for he mado no attempt to Interfere until the Intruder had completed his work Penchant for Rings. Heedness of danger, lavarnee ran sacked the house at will. In one of the bedrooms he found a handsome ring, set with 16 diamonds and a pearl. It had been Mr. Russel’s pres tlon from college, and was valued at S2OO. The burglar coolly dropped it into his pockeL In his tour of the house he collect ed two more rings, one valued at SSO and another at. $25; a fine briar plpo belonging to Mr. Russel, a $25 stop watch and the fedora, which proved his undoing. Then he helped himself to a handful of choice havana cigars from Mr. Russel’s private box, regaled himself In royal fashion In the pantry and leisurely sauntered out, Just as the family watch dog became aware of his presence and gave the alarm. One or two members of the household were awakened, but found nothing wrong and went back to sleep. In the meantime, Burglar Lavarnee gently shut, the door In the dog’s face and retired to a hammock under tho trees, where he lighted one of Mr. Russel’s cigars and enjoyed a quiet siesta.

LONDON, Bept. ..Irs. Marshall Field. Jr. and Maldwin M. Drummond were married this moraing at tho reg istry office. CHICAGO, Sept. 3.—Mrs. Marshall Field's wedding came as a distinct surprise to Chicago, as she was con sidered engaged to i>ord Robert Innes Kerr. Slnco she went to England, after the tragic death of her husband, who was killed by the accidental discharge of a gun, to educate her children, Mrs. Field lived in the strictest retirement, refusing invitations right and left. Os lute her rigorous attitude with regard to society has been relaxed somewhat and London believed it had Lord Innes-Kerr to thank for It. To Inherit Huge Estate. By far the greater part of Marshall Field's fortune —officially estimated at $150,000,000. was bequeathed by the merchant prince to his two grand sons, Marshall Field 111., now 14 years old, and Henry, 12. The little daugh ter, Gwendolyn, will be a very wealthy young woman also, hut her fortune will be trifling as compared with those of her brothers. If the boys are both living when Marshall attains the age of 50 years, the grandfather's estate will be divid ed between them, the elder receiving three-fifths and the younger two fifths. Until that time it will l>e held in trust for them aud at the rate their unostentatious mother lives, the mil lions must be piling up at an incred ible rate. Before her marriage to the son of Chicago’s wealthiest citizen, Mrs. .'ieltl was Miss Albertine Hack. She be longs to an excellent family noted for reHrrr'Trrrnnmfl cultu re", rnther than for its money, although the Bucks are far from poor. Aside from the fact that she is the mother of the world's ilchcst boys, she received a large sum of money at the death of her husband.

Corcoran was hanging around thtt city hall steps, where the street aewa boys make their headquarters, about 4:30 o’clock, Thursday morning, wait ing for a paper, the officers say, as though he were anxious to see aomtt* thing it contained. When Detective* Palmer and Dodlnus accosted aim he began to make all sorts of excuse* for being there and they decided to lock him up. He is detained in cen tral station. Corcoran Is 30 years old and gave his address as No. 130 Mich- , igan-ave. He has served time Oft more than one conviction. M. lieeks, a Wabash switchman, liv ing at No. 74 Slxteenth-st., called ttt police headquarters about 7 o’clock with what appeared to be a promising clue. While at work in the yards in the vicinity of Twelfth-sL just befora 2:30 o’clock, two men, whom he sixed up as tramps, though fairly well dressed, approached him and asked directions for reaching Adrian by freight. One of the men was about five feet seven inches in height and was bareheaded, while the other wa# three or four inches taller and wore a soft black hat. Locked in a Box Car. A train was then being made up and Reeks pointed out a row of empty box cars that would take them to their destination. they Jumped Into one of the cars and Decks, as is the custom, shut the door on them and locked it. Trainmen take no chances with hoboes who are allowed to ride with them and lock them in as a precau* tion against possible hold-ups. A few minutes later the train pulled out for the Oakland yards, where there was considerable swttcfithg to Ledone be fore It finally started on its way. Oii his return home, after his night’s work. Reeks learned of the tragedy, and became interested at once over the report that one of the men lost his hat in the struggle with* their vic tim. He recalled the bareheaded man and his companion instantly, and lost no time in reporting the incident to the police. Detective Dick Stenton was detailed to accompany him to the Oakwood yards In the hope of appre hending the pair before the freight pulled out. They found the car but it was de serted. It is thought that the men after being locked in, pounded on tho door until someone of the car crew let them out. As no one in the yards hail reen any persons of their descrip tion, tlie officer concluded that they bad been let out by some member of the night yard crew. The two men answer in a general way the description given by Charles F. Hartman, grocer at No. 751 Wood ward*ave., of two men seen running from the scene of the tragedy. Robbery plainly the Motive. That Walser was shot as a result of nn attempt to rob him. which he frustrated, is the theory of tho police. Walser locked up the store shortly after 10 o'clock and went to the s&loon <>f Benj F.
