SOB. SQUAD SHOCKED. Nunzia De Michele Convicted of Shooting at Former Lover. It was a severe shock to Nunzia De Michele when the Jury in Judge Con nolly's court returned, late Thursday afternoon, with a verdict pronouncing her guilty of shooting at Matteo Din olfo, her former lover, "with intent to do great bodily harm, lees than mur der." Nunzia, the roly-poly, 16-year-old Ital ian girl, almost collapsed when the verdict was announced. The trial, up to that point, had betn sort of a gar den festival for hci. The sob-squad was most active In Nunzia's behalf, and she used to road with calm and serene delight their descriptions of her eyes and her gestures and her sauciness. Occa sionally—not more than three or four times a day—she would pose for her photograph, to embellish some now sob-squad effort. The aob-squaddem assured her that she would never he convicted, and led Nunzia to believe that It waa the cutest thing in the world to empty n revolver at an in tended victim, and then he tried, and photographed, nnd rnved over.

A question which may enable the D. U. R. to contest legally with the city for the possession of almost all the streets on which franchises expire within the next few years, will be iai*ed in case the common council adopts the new car routing plan ar tanged by the mayor's Committee of 50 as a basis for anew settlement. It was stated by Mayor Thompson during the last campaign that Presi dent Hutchins, of the D. U. R.. had offered to take over anew franchise with the old Detroit railway terms. Presumably the disposition of the 1). U. R. is still the same. In the Detroit railway franchise is a clause which gives the three-cent fare company an option on any "new” routes. The legality of this option is in doubt, of course. Corporation Coun sel Hally is of the opinion that it is not valid, basing his view on a court decision which ruled that the ordi nance of 1862, giving the Citizens’ Street Railway Cos. the exclusive right to run street cars In Detroit, was noc binding. The two cases differ, how ever, in many points, and there seems no doubt but that the adoption of a lot of new routes would give the D. U. R. a chance to take the matter into BOYS’ CLOTHING Our Stock Is New and Fresh. A Selection From Mabley's Assures You of the Newest . Straw Hats at 50c to $5.00 JOHN D.
