Progressive Was Elected on Face
of Returns in Twelfth
LANSING, Mich., Doc. 10.— (Spe
cial.) —An error In the printing of the
ballot* In the twelfth congressional
district, caui*\d the board of state
canvassers lu session here today to
Issue a certificate of election to Con
gressman H. Olln Young, although on
the face of the returns, William J.
MacDonald, of the Soo, the Progret
sive candidate, has been eelcted.
In Ontonagon county, 458 vcjpes
were cast for Sheldon William J. Mac-
Donald, but in reality no such person
exists. However, the board of state
canvassers, under an opinion of the
supreme court, is required to canvass
the returns as they appear on the bal
lots, and this will take 468 votes from
William J. MacDonald and gives tluiv
number to Sheldon William J. Mac-
If this is done it will mean that
Congressman H. Olln Young will be
elacted by a plurality of 215. It is
expected that MacDonald will carry
the contest to congress If a certificate
Is Issued to Young.
According to the canvass of the
atate board, certificates will be Issued
to the following congressmen: First
district. Frank Do ramus (Dem.); Sec
ond district, Samuel W. Beakes
(Dem.); Third district, J. M. C. Smith,
(Rep.); Fourth district, Edward L
Hamilton (Rep.); Fifth district, Carl
Mapes (Rep.); Sixth district. Samuel.
W. Smith (Rep.); Seventh district,
Louis C. Cramton (Rep.); Eighth dis
trict, Joseph W. Fordney (Rep.);
Ninth district, J. C. McLaughlin

Jilted Man Wants Presents Hack
—Row Results and Whole
Story Comes Out
George B. Zilsberger, a cabinet mak
er, residing at No. 410 Beaublen-st.,
was lined $8 by Justice Jeffries. Tues
day morning, for "holding up" Mrs.
Nathalie Vickery'* husband at the
point of a briar pipe, in the Vickery
home, at No. 824 Riopelle-at., Satur
day night, and thereby hangs a tale
of “busted" romance, and an echo of
that old familiar wail about wanting
those presents back.
Zilsberger, defending himself
against the charge of disturbing the
peace, pleaded justification. He salt!
that two years ago he was engaged to
Nathalie Tifflsency, uow Mrs. Nathalie
Vickery. He said he deeded her hie
property, consisting of a two-family
flat valued at $3,500. and for which
Mrs. Vickery is still collecting the
rent, according to Zllsherger. He say*
suit is now pending on that matter in
the circuit court.
Besides the fiat, Zllsherger says
that he gave his fiancee a gold watch,
some diamonds, and other presents.
Theu he was suddenly called west on
business. That was two year* ago. He
received regular letters from Nathalie,
he says, but last February, in Omaha,
he received word that she had mar
ried Vickery. Ho came home,
it was all too true, and retained Attor
ney W. J. Hawley to start a replevin
action for his property and presents.
Saturday night, Zilsberger called on
Mrs. Vickery and demanded the pres
ents. She showed him the door ami
when he refused to go, her husband
was attracted by the rumpus and came
rushing In with an upraised chair, Zils
Zilsberger says that he then drew
his trusty briar pipe, enclosed In a
black case, from his pocket, and
leveled it at Mr. and Mrs. Vickery,
commanding them to "back up," which
they promptly did. Then he gacked
out of the door, covering his retreat
with the briar pipe.
Mrs. Vickery insists that Zllsherger
leveled a revolver and not a pipe at
her and her husband.
Justice Jeffries imposed a fine of
$lO on Zilsberger for creating a dis
Zilsberger only had $8 with him,
and Justice Jeffries accepted that

OF DOG ORDINANCE

duce an amendment to the dog ordi
nance in the council, Tueaday night,
I to permit dogs to run at large wlth
-1 out muzzles except in June, July and
■ August. The present ordinance, pass
*ed at the Insistence of Health Officer
‘Kiefer, requires that dogs running at
j large be muzzled In all seasons of the
year. Dog owners claim that the or
dinance Is not being enforced, saying
that only a small proportion of the
dogs running at large without muzzles
are destroyed and that there Is a great
deal of discrimination showed by the
!police department in this matter. Lit
,tlefleld's amendment will be referral
to committee and the dog owners Will
again “fight It out" with Dr. Kiefer.
The committee on ordinances will
not report In favor of Dr Kiefer s
suggestion that an ordinance be pail
ed permitting the health board to
summarily destroy dogs known to
have been bitten by other dogs af
flicted with the rabies. The present
ordinance requires that dogs so bit
tern shall be quarantined for a reason
able period, and that if rabies do not
develop they shall be returned to
their owners. The board has the
authority to destroy rabid dogs and
