Dr. Win. H. Kessler, retiring grand
commander of the Michigan Grand
C'oinmandery of Knights Templar,
who collapsed on Belle Isle, last Wed

Last Thursday he pluckily insisted
upon attending the closing session of
the conclave, though warned by his
physician not to take any active part,
hut Thursday afternoon he went home
and was unable to leave his bed
again. He was perfectly conscious
until midnight, Sunday, when he fell

years, bill he had refused
der to It, and entered with tremend
ous energy into the duties and re
sponsibilities that devolved upon him
when he was elected a year ago to
head the Knights Templar of this
state. For the last three weeks, how
ever, it w’as feared that he had over
taxed his strength.
The day of the annual parade, last
Tuesday, he appeared to stand the
strain better than his family expect
ed, but their fears were revived fchen
he coilaiAied on the island the follow
ing day. His interest and enthusiasm
had been so Centered, however,' in
■ lie conclave that marked the climax
of his Knight Templar career that it
was thought his disappointment at
not being able to attend the final ses
sion oh Thursday, might prove injuri
ous, and he was permitted to attend
with injunctions to be simply a spec
tator.
The shock of the sudden death of
James Findlater. of Detroit, past
r.rand commander of the Knights t
Templar, a year ago at the grand com
mandery annual conclave in Saginaw',
Is believed to have been a contribut
ing cause of Commander Kessler's
death. The two Templars were bound
together in a friendship of many
VW»’ standing and *occtrpied adjoin
ing room when attending the Sagi
naw conclave. It was Dr. Kessler who
first discovered Mr. Findlater’s body.
In the morning following his sudden
death during the night. After that
Dr. Kessler, it is said, was never quite
the same and the year’s .work as
:;rand commander made heavy in
roads upon his health.
The funeral services Wednesday at
2 p. m„ in the Masonic temple, will
be conducted by the grand comman
dery with Detroit and other com
manderies assisting, and the inter
ment will be in Woodlawn cemetery.
Dr. Kessler was born in 1849, in
Bristol. Ind., and came to Detroit in
1875. Outside of his Masonic connec
tions, he was well known as a promi
nent dentist, and had offices in the
Washington arcade. He Is survived
by his widow and thrde sons, Allan
H. s os Detroit; William H. Kessler,
Jr., of Grand Rapids, and J. Horton
Kessler; of housing.
When the last class was initiated
by the Michigan Sovereign consist
ory', Dr. Kessler was president of the
dais, and ho was a member of Union
lodge, Peninsular Chapter, Monroe
council, and Moslem Temple.
Pastor Praises Miss Newberry for
Withdrawing. From Loveless Marriage
a
Praise for the action of Miss Carol Newberry in withdrawing from a
loveless marriage at the eleven.!i hour, was given from the pulpit of the
North Baptist chnreh, Sunday evening, by the Rev. Thomas W. Young, '
in the course of the third sermon on "Marriage,” which series has been
attracting large congregations to the church. •
"it was the action of a sensible glr' and an honorable man,” declared
Mr. Young. * ,
Continuing his remarks on they lived happy ever afterwards," Mr.
Young ssid that a man shouid "cut out" clubs, stag parties, etc., after
marriage and that if his sweetheart liked candy, music and plcntcs he
should provide them after marriage.
Aa for the wife she shouli learn totslk to her husband on other topir
s besides "dresses, domestics and dls-eaaef.
"There can be no happiness in the marriage where there is a lack of
true companionship and comradeship, sacrifice and consideration for each
other, and a pull-together understand inf,' said Mr. Young.

those Interested in the preservation!
of game life, reforestratlon of the cut

ble For Cases of Self- •
Destruction
Os four people to whom the week
end brought violent death in Detroit,
i two were Polish girls, slain by jeal
ous lovers, and two were suicides,
one of the cases of self-destruction
being due to despondency and ill
i health and the other to intoxication.
The two dead Polish girls are
Gladys Walker, also known as Isabel
Kelsey, a pretty case singer, who was
shot by Rudolph Jennings, a molder,
l late Saturday afternoon, in the Bet
man case, Brush-st. and Mudison-ave.,
and Victoria Gagaleski. whf fled from
her home, No. 625 Medbury ave., Sun
day afternoon, pursued by Stanley
Wisnewski, who fired five shots at the
girl, finally sending a fatal bullet
through her brain as he caught her
and held her Ups to his.
Jennings fired two bullets into his
own head, but It is reported in St.
Mnry’s hospital that he will recover.
Wisnewski was also taken to St.
Mary’s hospital because of Injuries
sustained in a beating he received
when neighbors of Miss Galgaleski
overpowered him. His injuries are
not serious.
Os the two suicides, Miss Carrie
Speier. of No. 531 MaybTlry Gran/-
ave., stood in front of a mirror and
shot herself. Having been compelled
to abandon her profession of nurse
because of poor health, the young
woman—she was only 20 —had Joined
a sister in trying to make a success
of a confectionery store at No. 2159
Gratiot-ave., but had lost the money
Invested and become despondent.
Samuel Noble drank poison early
Sunday morning after returning In
toxicated to his home. No. 29 Craig
pi., and Coroner Burgess decided that
the case w*as so evidently one of sui
cide that no inquest was necessary.
Noble had been acting queerly since
he suffered a blow* on the head In a
fight some time ago.
Wisneakl's pursuit of his terrified
vUtim along Medbury-ave. was wit
nessed by scores of Sunday prome
nadera. The girl’t 13-year-old brother.
Dobyslaus Gagaleski, bravely ran out
in an effort to protect his sister, and
with several well-aimed bricks struck
Wisnewski 'and made him stumble
several times. But the craved lover
ran on. and the girl, as yet uninjured
but with her hair knocked down by
the first bullet, and streaming behind
her, ran screaming down the street
until she saw* an open door at No. 635
Medbury. But tile frightened occu

RICH OFFEND IN MATTER
OF UTTERING ALLEYS
Just as Careless as the Poorer
Classes, Declares Jack
Knight
"Mv experience has shown me that
the poor, or middle classes arc not
the worst offenders when it comes to
littering the alleys," said Jack Knight,
superinetndent of street cleaning.
“Take a walk through the alleys in
the Indian village or on Piety hill
and yiu will find almost ae much evi
dence of carelessness in this respect
as you will in other sections of the
city. The lawns, trees and hedges of
these places are beautiful and we do
our beat to keep the alleys looking
presentable. AVe get an alley looking
spick and spau. just like those pic
tures you see of the Alley Ideal In
the women’s magazines. We no soon
er turn our backs than out goes nn
armful of rubbish.
"The alleys in the wealthier neigh
borhoods are mostly concealed from
the houses and lawns, so their ap
pearance doesn't make so much dif
ference fro mthe front, but to us,
are expected to keep them clean, it
makesa lot of difference. If we let.
them go for a few days the people
are on our necks. The other day we
Just got through scouring an alley in
the Indian village when the people in
one of the houses threw out alvo.it half
a ton of grass, hedge clippitig and
rubbish.
“1 tell you. the people have a great
deal to do with this problem of keep
ing the alleys clean. Some of them
will rant and rave about the condi
tion of the alleys and then go home
and throw a basket of ashes or rub
bish over the back fence without their
conscience bothering them in the
least. As long as we have alleys w r e
will have an alley problem, and as
lout; as each individual fails to realize
ids own Individul responsibility in the
.matter the problem will not be solved,
Just now people are throwing old
paper by the tons into the alle>s It
costs the city $2.45 to haul every load
of rubbish from the alleyß to The
dumping station. . Teams are scarce
and the men we hire throw this paper
Into their wagons loosely and when
the wagons are filled up they drive
away. They don’t stamp down the
paper and it costs the people quite a
sum to haul away a few cents worth
of old paper. To those people I want
to say, ’Burn it.’ They can save the
appearance of the alleys and save tr.e
city, and, incidentally, themselves,
money, by burning It."
PRIEST SAYS SOCIALISM
IS SOCIETY’S ENEMY
Discussing "The Roman Cathallc
church and the working man,” Sun
day, the Rev. Henri Hlanchot, In St.
Joachim’s church, said that "Social
ism is society’s enemy and means the
disruption of home." "Socialism for
gets that since the fall of man para
dise is lot, that man is inclined to
evil and that this world has become
a vale of tears. They fail to see that
the cause of our wide-spread economic
and social evils (s the selfishness that
lies deep down in the human breast,
and that no reform is possible until
that heart is made to beat in re
sponse to the gospel message.
"If today there arc strikes and riots
and revolutions, it Is because the
principles of Christianity have taken
no firm hold on many human lives.
Riches are hoarded and the gup wid
ened between wealth and poverty be
cause men have forgotten the idea
of Christian brotherhood and failed to
learn the lessons that they are only
the steward*. In Gods name, of the
riches they handle.
"If there Is to be reform, It must
be brought about not by the aboli
tion of fundamental and long standing
human Institutions, but by the i>eace
rul teuching of Christian principles,
by insisting ujmn the duty of service

WOULD LIMIT TAX RATE
TO $lO A THOUSAND
Assessor Nagle Will Ask Next
Legislature To Put
Through Law
John C. Nagel, city assessor, way*
he will make an effort to have the
next legislature pass two bills affect
ing tax assessments in Michigan. One
will be a copy of the Ohio Iw, under
which cities cannot strike a tax rate
In excess of IVfc per cent of assessed
valuation, or sls per 11,000. Else
where in the state, the rate cannot be
more than one per cent, or $lO a
thousand.
"We have a law which requires the
assessment of property at its full
value, but it is not and can not be
enforced,” said Nagel. “A tax con
ference to consider this would not
have the desired effect. If the rate is
kept down the local assessing officers
will have to put iip the assessments
to get the nbcesaary revenue.”
Another bill will require the separ
ation of assessments oh land and
buildings throughout the state. De
trtht it the only place fa which this

PARCELS POST SYSTEM
IS PRACTICALLY ASSURED
WASHINGTON." June 10.—legisla
tion providing for a general parcels
post throughout the United States
and ita possessions, except the Phil
ippine islands, la practically certain
to be enacted by the present con
gress, perhaps before the Conclusion
of the session now in progress, in the
opinion of Postmaster-General Hitch
cock.
He has urged insistently upon con
gress the desirability of domestic par
cels post because among other rea
sons, he believes It will aid substan
tially in the solution of the problem
of the high cost of living.
In a statement he expressed the
hope that the measure recently Intro
duced by Senator Bourne, chairman
of the committee on postofflees and
Imst roads, might be crystallized in
to law.
In the judgment of the officers of
the postal service, the Bourne bill
represents the /most scientific’ and
business-like plan yet devised for a
parcels post. H provides for a par
cels service throughout the country,
both on rural routes and city carrier
routes. It consolidates the third aud
fourth classes of mall matter —a re
form long advo<ated by the postoffice
department—and raises the weight
limit of parcels to 11 pounds, which
is the limit of the international par
cels post. The rate to be charged
for article* carried in the rural route
service and city carrier service
is five cent* for the first pound or
fraction of a pound. For the general
pan els post service, which cover* all
mail transportation other than local
delivery by rural or .city ‘ carriers,
graduated rates would be established,
based on distance. -

night. It was the last word of the
Taft camp and they claimed that evsry
single delegate would “stand without
hitching.”
The Roosevelt leaders insisted that
while these might be the figures from
the standpoint of the individual stats
leaders who are for Taft they did not
represent the individual delegates.
They insisted that many of the in
dividual delegates from many of the
states where the Taft people were
building their heavieet hopes would
prove a great surprise when they arose,
in their places and cast their ballots
in the convention. Their smallest es
timate of the delegates that they will
controll was 700 and they 'rslsted
that as syon as the calling of tne roll
on the first question that is rataed in
the convention is well started there
will be such a rush to “climb on the
bandkagon” that the Taft forces will
hardly be able to hold two hundred of
their delegates.
While the greatest interest attached
to the meeting of the national com
mittee today, where it was conceded
that the action in the Indians and
Arizona esses would indicate whether
the committee intended putting,
through the’'“steam roller'* ■'peogggn:
and seating the Taft contestants in
every district possible, the big fight
so far as the ante-convention days are
concerned, was transferred bark to
the Congress hotel, where the rival
candidates have their headquarters.
The Taft people are satisfied the
committee will give them the tempo
rary roll of the convention, if they can
hold the delegates. And the Roosevslt
forces belleev this too, and are al
ready arranging to capture the com
mittee on credentials. They want to
be "regular” while they have coun
tenanced the bolt talk, and while they
will bolt If they are unuble to attain
their aim any other way, they were
extremely confident today that they
would not have to do so.
Here is the plan evolved by er-Boss
Fllnn, of Pittsburgh, which hgs been
approved by all of the member.) of
the new steering committee, which is
here in charge of the Roosevelt ways
