The recent sudden changes in the con dition of the jail has induced the super visors of thU county to. call a special ses sion to take into consideration, whether or not a jail should be of such a calibre as to retain prisoners when once placed within their walls, or to allow them to pass out as scemeth to them best. .The Board will 'meet on Wednesday the 15th of this month, v Something must bo done about the jail. There are maiiy bad and insecure jails in Michigan, in fact the state is somewhat noted for the insufficiency of its jail accommodations, not so much in quantity, as in quality, but of all the poor jails in the state, we thinkthe one in Che boygan county is the poorest. If our in formation is correct, no man ever remain ed in it long after he wanted to get out. Sometimes they stay a few weeks, as this last man did, until the confinement be came a little monotonous, when they come up missing. If the county is going to have a jail at all, it should have one which will keep in safety any one who may be put in it. if We cannot have that, we had better let the criminals go with out going to the expense of catching them. A Daily Mail. Now that there is a daily stage running each way between Petoskey and this place, why is it that we cannot have a daily mail? Of course it would have to be a special arrangement between the con tractor and the citizens of this place. It would be a little more trouble lor him to bring the mail every day, still we think that Mr. Smith would be willing to do the extra service for a reasonable com pensation, and this we think our citizens would be willing to pay for the extra ac commodations. We trust that some one will take the matter in hand and see what arrangement can be made about it. Should we secure a daily mail this w inter, and the inland route be opened next sea son, there will be a great doubt about Cheboygan ever having to go back to a tri-wcckly mail again. After this year wc trust that the government will order a daily Service here, but until then, if it can be had at a reasonable cost, the' citi had bettei club together and pay the ex tra expense. Let u3 have a daily mail. v Smith's Stage Line. " Mr. David Smith returned from Grand Rapids, the early 'part of the week, where he had been to arrange a through freight arrangement with the Grand Rapids and Indiana railroad from all the principal points to Cheboygan. This we under stand he succeeded in doin. Freight will be billed direct from Chicago, De troit or Grand Rapids to Cheboygan, where it will be delivered much cheaper than heretofore. This will be a great ac commodation to our citizens, and will no doubt . largely increase the amount of freight received. The contract with the company is, that a daily stage each way shall be run, and more if necessary to transport the freight promptly. The daily line commenced ths week, and so far have been running with large load3 each way. The roads are in splendid condition, six hours being the running time, which is less than half what it was a few weeks ago. The- Stale Camp Meeting Ground It seems that the announcement that that the state camp meeting ground had been located at Petoskey was a little premature.- It is true that a majority of the committee at first favored Petoskey, but it has not been positively decided where it will go. Traverse City and Ludington will not give rip their claims for it without a struggle. 'A short time since a portion of the locating committee again visited the three places named, and Were to decide after their return. As yet we have not learned Uhat .any decision has been "arrived, at JCiaverse City, ha? agreed to raise $G,000 a3 an inducement, while Ludington will probably riot be far behind This shows that Fgfoskey has got to be awake to her interests',- Or else she will say "so near and yet so far. The Sidewalk Business, ilt may be as some sayjhat it is impos sible to keep sitewalks clear of snow du ring the winter, but such is not the expe rience or other places no better located a3 far as snow is concerned than this. In Marquette the sidewalks are kept clear during the winter, through the labor and energy of Iton. Peter White A snow- plow is used. . There is probably as much snow in MarqUette as there is in Cheboy gan. Cheboygan, unfortunatly has n Peter white, but it has material with which a snow plow might be made, and the: sidewalks kept clear as well as in Marquette, or many other places. A snow plow run over the sidewalks after every snow or wind storm, would keep them comparatively clear, and make' (he place much more comfortable to live' in during the winter. ; -,'u. -' . Postpone). Owing to sickness in his family, Dr. Spinney, who was advertised to visit this place during the past month, has postponed the visit until" about the middle of this month'. r ; ' ' . WINTER NAVI&ATION. , ' - . ; Seven Days of Perilcft Navigation From Sauit St.T ietd i t uneooygs. r i ' The Propeller Missouri rzen Up In St. Mary's Ri ; l For several days past it has been ru mbred around town that several vessels were frozen up In Mud Lake and the St. Mary -s River. From Mr. F. W. Dygcrt, superintendent df " Williams & Cos dredges who arrived Here ft-oin tile Sault on Thursday, and w;hd was A passenger" on the propeller Misssdurij we learn the following particulars of the trij5 down and the conditions of the vessels : . Mr. Dygert left Sault St. . Marie on the 2Gth ult. on the Missouri. They arrived in Mud Lake about two o'clock p. m., when 'they struck ice, and made only about six miles by dark, when they be came fast. ' The propeller Xorman also left the Sault soon after the Missouri, expecting to come through the ice in company. AVhen the Norman struck the heavy ice she turned back, going to the " encamp ment," where she unloaded about one hundred tons of pig-iron and took on wood. Saturday morning was clear and cold, commencing to freeze hard by two o'clock. The Missouri by this time was short of fuel, and her crew was employed during the day hauling wooti about two miles on a hand sled. About five o'clock the propeller St. Paul and Norman came in sight reaching the Missouri about seven o'clock. All night Saturday night, the propellers broke ice, the vessels taking turns in going ahead. Sunday morning the clear ice was six and seven inches thick. All day Sunday slow progress was made by breaking through the Ice. Sunday night about seven o'clock the gale struck them when they were ricar the head of Lime Island, the St; Paul and Norman going ahead Soon after this these two boats shot bff frdm heavy into light ice; but, unfortunately, just ntthis time the gale broke .off a heavy field of ice and wedged the Missouri fast. Capt. Hunt immediately piit iijj lie foresail and put on all steam, but the ves sel could not be moved.- The wind tore the sail into shredSi Efforts were then made to chop the vessel out, but without avail. By morning aii Lopes of getting her out were given up. When it cleared up the St. Paul and Norman could be seen about a mile and a half away iu the ice. The captain and mate went down to see them, and made arrangements with the Normau to wait at Detour for the Missouri's passe ngers. Mr. Dygert and party then went to the shore and walked down the beach to De. tour, nearly twenty miles. They then came to Mackinaw on the Norman, reach ing here on Thursday. The crew of the Missouri came to De tour on Tuesday, nearly all of them more or less frozen. ' Capt McCIoud, of the Norman, waited at Detour for the whole party, aud did everything in his power for their comfort, as also did the clerk, Gilexson, for which the passengers ex press their warmest thanks. Mr. Dygert, as in fact were thd others, was compelled to leave hi3 baggage on the boat. This accident to the Missouri is doubly unfortunate, on account of the fact that she was to have been rebuilt during the winter. Mr. Dygert informs us that the City 'of Fremont and the barge Rust are in Lake Superior, and expected to come down, but will no doubt be compelled to re main there. Although the passage from the Sault was a very tedious one, it was not nearly as bad as it would have been had all the boats' been frozen in A Night Ride. Mr. E. T. Williams, who has been in town about four weeks superintending the dredging operations of his firm, and since they were closed awaittng the return of their superintend ent, Mr. Dygert, started for the railroad Thursday night, so as to be able' t6 take the Friday morning train. The rid& to Petoskey is not overly pleasant at the best, but we know from experience that a night ride over that route is about as dismal - and lonely as can well be imag ined. New Lumbering Firm.- Messrs. Mc EiUnotl & Cameron, a lumbering firm from Saginaw, arrived this week, and to-day left for tneir field 6T operations, which will be on Pigeon rivea. They have purchased the teams and equipments of Messrs. Ross & Co. and propose to get in as much as possible for them to do, taking into consideration the lateness of the season. We wish them success. ; Deserve Mention. The men who went out' to the wreck in the small, boat Monday last, deserve more than a passing mention. Theirs wras an arduous .under taking and not without danger. We would give their names, but have not been able to learn- them-alk- ESCATED. Samuel Harbold Tiuirns Out of Jail Tie is Captured, but Is out Again Before Morning. ; It was Sabbath morning.- The day was beautiful and the hour was yet early when a solernn procession moved, with out music, along Court House street with uncertain steps, for the snow was deerj. In one unbroken line they marched, each stepping in the tracks of his file leaden It was a curious throng, for they had gathered .from 'the dwellings near "by, none coming lrom a distance. They came "not conquering and to conquer," but to view .the . last resting place of Samuel Harbold, the man .who resided at " Paquette's Hall." He had fled ! During the long, dark, and 6tormy night, Samuel ilarboid had secured his freedom by his own wit and exertion ; and this thrdng had come thus early to view the hole through which he went out. The facts arc these, . as near d a Tri bune reporter could gather' them : With a piece of hinge frdm one of the cell doors, by heating it to a white heat, he at last cut a hole large enough to let himself out; Having obtained his free dom, he went down to Duncan City, there hired out as a teamster and went at his hard but honest labor". He did not hie himself away to" a wild wool fastness as might have been ex pected. He had been too lonely within his prison walls for that He drove a "tote" team, only this, and nothing more, passing by his old quarters at the bastile (?) every day without fear or trembling, for if returned, could he not again get out ? His liberty was of short duration. Thursday the eagle-eye of Sheriff Paquette saw him, and when he least expected it he was captured and taken back to his prison home and placed in another cell. Again preparations were made to give him his accustomed iHeal. Sheriff Pa quette went to the prison the next morn ing with Mr. Harbold's breakfast. When he opened out the cell wherein Harbold had been secured, it contained him no longer. The prisoner had gone, and gone too, through the same hole he went out at before. The sheriff at once compre hended the situation, and gave it tip, all because Cheboygan county will not fur nish a prDper place for its criminals. Samuel Harbold is gone "where the woo:lbinc twincth" for aught we know. The eagle that soars from1 his home on som? lofty mountain height is notmore free than he. Let him ro. Dlrctcions for Conduct at Fires. (To the Editor.) Tt must be that the burning of a dwell ing which is occupied has a tendency to cause insanity in the human race. I have been to several fires in this village, in the short period that I have resided here, and if the actions of the citizens are any criterion by ."which to judge, I should think that there was a regular 1 ule to govern everybody upon such occasions. When the whistle blows little spasmodic toots, you may bd sure there is a fire somewhere, for that is the1 way tlley give an alarm of fire in this tdwri. Grab your hat, hunt up your mitten?, but be very careful not take a bucket, biit run and yell. The faster you run and the louder you shout the more excitement there will be. When ydu get id the fire, if you can find an axe grab it and knock the first door off its hinges you can reach. Be very careful to spoil the door if possi ble, because you want to srve it for the insurance company; for they never have to pay for any doors that are taken off, whether there are any panels left or not. Having got a firm foothold in the build ing, and becoming satisfied that you are in no danger yourself, take your axe and knock out a window. Grab a rocking chair you will find there and throw it out the window with all your pdwer, because that will brdak it; you know; Take the bureau and pitch that out, especially If you are up stairs; If there is A miridr in the room be sure and pitch tbat out, or if you do not think that is the correct thing to do, take it carefully down stairs, across the street, and sling it against the fence, because that will save it; Take the mattress off the bed, cdrry it down stairs carefully; arid if you can find a secure place to put it in a neighbor's dooryard, do' s"o. Be sure and take up the carpets; and do it as careful as you have a mind to, but be sure and tear them in two or three places in doing it. S, In Trouble and Jail. A member of the numerous family of Petoskey, from the village by that name, came into town Thursday. In the evening he started out to make some calls. Feeling quite sociable, he called alike upon those he knew and those he did not know; if anything showing a preference, for the latter: This led to a little dissatisfaction on the part of some of the reciperits of his visits, and he was jmt out of the house. He then coinmerice'd making a disturbance, and this ended up by his being put in jail by Marshal Mulvaugh. CnuRcn Social. The first meeting of the M.' E. Church social will be held at the residence of J. Sutton Esq. on Wednesday evening.-Pecember 8lh. The public are cordially invited to attend. t Mrs. E. A. Vorce, President.- SAULT ST. 3IAKIE. A few Items of Information Concerning trie Improvements in Progress There. Captain Gorton, the superintendent of the canal, v is making arrangements for putting In a new set of gates at the low er entrance of the lock. . Every thing has beeri prepared In advance as near as pos sible, "so tlia't active operations could be cbnimenced as soon as navigation closed. The steani pumps are on hand, as are also the new gates. A coner dam will pe built just below the lock, and the water pumped out, wlien the new gates will be put in place. It is probable by this time that active operations t on the dam have been commenced. . , . Barker & Co.. have their contract for putting in piers at the entrance of the new canal nearly completed. There wa3 about five hundred feet of piers under thi3 contract, and they look extremely well, showing that they have been built in a good and substantial manner. E. T. Williams & Co. under the super intendence of Mr. Dygert, have been tak ing diii the slope wall on the east side of the did lock, using the heavy dredge tak en from here. The work was very heavy, the wall being filled wVth stone. It is the intention of Captain Gorton to put pier work in the place of th's sloping wall. Mr. Dygert also done some dredg ing for the coffer dam, " " Messrs. Boyle & Roach have the pit of the new locks completed as far as possi ble until the material for the walls Is furnished by the government It was the intention to have the stone there this season, but for some reason it did not come. The contractors are keeping a pump running this winter, to keep thd pit clear, so that operations may be com menced early in the spring. With the exception of the improve ments upon the locks, under way by Captain Gorton, Mr. Dygert, from whom we gather this iuformaton, thinks there will be very little public work in pro gress at the Sault thU winter. Poor Lo. f Ltf 1 the poor Indian, whose tintutbfe mind Sees Got in the ekio and bears Ilira in the wh.il." . His name wa3 Petoskey, and he was a descendent of that noble red man of the forest who loaned the use of his name to the Grand Rapids and Indiana Railroad as a fitting one for its present terminus On Thursday morning, with his knap sack strapped to his back, he came, wea rj footsore and friendless, within the corporate limits of this village. He had a ten dollar bill in his pocket which, becoming known, found him nlariy friends. They rallied around him and he rallied back", until at last it was painfully evident i liatf Cheboyg'dh fire water was too much for him.- In an un guarded moiricrit fie' surrounded too much of it, and, alas! what degradation! At nightfall of tliat day He was a'rrcYted by thd Marshal of the village ah'cl thrown into prison for being drunk. The morning hour came, with all its pains in the head, as well as the terror of Justice Sutton's court iS poor Lo. " Unruffled and calm1 was the brow of His Honor as he paused, with pen in hand, to remark : "Mr. Lo, why do I see you here this morning? They tell me j-odwere drunk yesterday. I had ex pected better things of you as a repre sentative of your noble race than this; Yesterday morning you had monej", and soon you had friends. To-day where are you and what is your condition. Did the Great Spirit beguile you to taste of the intoxicating cup, or, rather, were the cir cumstances such as to make you get drunk?" The only reply that could be got to this speech was, "Me want much drunk last night. Me been a great deal drunker over Petoskey, and they said nothing about it." - , . This was too much for nis ifonor to bear. With indignation stamped on his usually smiliug couutenaiice he said the fatal words, "Five dollars and costs," which were promptly paid, and Mr. Lo departed for his wild wood home in Pe toskey without money or frie'rtdsV d sad der if not a wiser man. - Christmas Dance. There wiii be a ball at the Brutus House on Christmas eve, December 24th:. This will no doubt be an erijoyable affair, as Mr. Sherman will spare no pains to make it so.
