EIGHTH YEAR, NO. ago.
BRADLEY WILL WIN
BY LESS THAN
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,
“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
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
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
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.

GROSSE POINTE PLUNDERER
IDENTIFIED BY ARISTOCRATIC
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. Detec
tive Lieut. Thomas Lally at once
spotted a gray fedora hat worn by the
prisoner us one that had been report
ed stolen from the Grosso Polnte resl
denco of Henry Russel, attorney for
the .ilchlgan Central railroad, las.;
Sunday night, along with valuable
articles of Jewelry.
Sounds Like Stage Skit.
"Where did you get that hat?” de
"I bought it last Monday,” nnsweyed
the prisoner, and he named a store on
"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
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

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. As the dawn was breaking he
packed hi*- bolonglnge- into ~a TJTOT"
