It is now definitely settled, that they will take place oa Thursday and Friday of next week...; ',; ,-'t. . . -A meeting of those iiiturested was held on. Wednesday evening last at the store of J.

The purses for the first day's races are to con sist of $75, $25 and $15. The winners of the two highest purses are to be ruled out of the'second day's races.

The developments of the p;ist few day3 show that Cheboygan contains some sneak thieves. . Tuesday night they vis ited R. E. Pratt's clothe3 line and took away some underclothing. It would seem also, that the thieves spent the night in the -'parlors'" tit the skating xink, aud not only this, but they desecrated it by turning it into a kitchen. They stole some chickens. They were hungry, so they built up a fire in the old stove and cooked them. Just how manv chickens there were, or where tliey were stolen from as yet is not known. A pair ot drawers, were left there which had the appearance of having teen just taken from a line. These were not Pratt's there fore it is evident they called at some oth ci clothes line besides his. The noise the vagabonds made in the rink was heard and the light seen, but no one thought it worth while to examine into the matter. There i3 no clue to the perpetrators of this rascality, until they are brought to justice, our citizens would ; do . well to 4ldok a little out" for theff chickens, clothes lines, or anything else of a mov able nature A Slight "Onpleasanrnesx." Thursday night a little onpleasantness occurred in Charlie Bellant's store. It was Caused by a discussion regarding the dissensions which have for the past week or more been going on in the Cath olic Church. The principal actors in the difficulty were Dr. Pomm'ier and Sam MacCoit. The latter was dwarm par tisan of Father DeCeuninck, while the doctor wa3 oil the other side of the con troversy. The dispute waxed. very warm, and ended in blows; which were inflicted upon MacCoit by the doctor. Perhaps there were some blows the other waj but our reporter could not learn definitely about it. MacCoit did not appear to be seriously damaged when he sought the aid of His Honor Justice) button the next morning. But he made a complaint ol assault and battery, and the doctor was soon arrested and appeared before the bar of justice, and pleaded hot guilty. . His .examination was fc for nwrfc Mon day,, when we. suppose the full facts of inc case wiu ue ueveiopeiu Church Meeting. According to previous notice the con gregation of the Congregational Church met at the church on Thursday evening to take into consideration the resignation of the pastor, Rev. J. L. Maile. Some of the society thought that Mr. Maile had not presented bis resignation that he simply wished to rest a few months While he might nave an opportunity. and recruit his health, and that any ac tion by the society in accepting his res ignation would, be premature, and In fact resigning 'him. Others understood that Mr. Maile intended the society to understand that he had resigned hi3 charge here. -: After talking the matter over pretty fully, it was decided that it was best if possible to keep .the church open;, arid to that end the trustees were' insirucWd to procure a supply for the pulpit as spotf as they could do so : and for a lertein of time that they might find it necessary; . We think the action taken ia wiu. for it certainly would be detrimental to the, Interests of the church, as wlf as to th pnblV at large, to have the church ciosei. Land Office Business.

A TCTMBIXlTTtAIXJEDt. 'Cry of Tlrt Cause a Stampede From" a . Cincinnati Theatre and Nine Wom en and Children are Crushed . to Ifeath. Last Saturday afternoon Robinson's Opera House, In Cincinnati, was crowded to its utmost capacity, to see the per formance of the. "Allegory of the Great Republic.". The audience bohsfsted main ly of woien -and 'children, the tickets having Dcp JecU by ihc children ot the public schools. ' .... Just as the curtain ws about to rise upon the first sccrae, . some iool or fiend, it is difficult to determine which, started tne dread cry of " fire I" . Like a clap of thunder succeeds the vivid flash of light ning, go followed the deadly fcaiilc on the heels of the cry of fire. Every inch of the vast audience room was occupied by the eager audience. As one body, the whole mass of hu man beings made a rush for the stair ways. A human torrent going head long down the' half-lighted stairways, carrying everything before It, until the crushed and smothered, wounded and dying mass of women and children, lay piled upon each bttier, at the bottom of the stair3 to the depth of five or six feet. Over this helpless mass, the stampeders who had not lost their footing continued to rush pell-mell, tramping out the life of those below. ; ' After a time the panic was quelled and the work of rescue came, and It was as certained that there were nine women and children crushed to death; besides a great number who were more or less Injured. - , . - . This is one of the most disastrous ac cidents, which has ever taken place in Cincinnati. , . Whetherthe cry of fire which caused the tradgedy was malicious or not, probably-, lid one will ever know, although many think it was. How to Judge a Town. Quite frequently we are called upon for a copy of the Tribune by. persons seek ing a location for business, either in the manufacturing or feereantile line. The following, taken from the Jefferson (Mo.) Journal, 6hc?w3 whnt prominence Is given the to advertising department of a news paper, in judgingof the business pros pects of a town : . . About a week ago a genjleman from Tennessee, representing a junpital of 20,000, in searc'i of a good locality in which to engage In business, gave us a call, and after stating his mission, asked to look at our paper. We handed him the morning Journal, and to our sur prise he did not stop to read our newsy local "pick-up?," or our attractive edi tonal page, but turned at once to our advertising coining and commenced couuting our advertisers and me?suring their ppac??. uWeli," said he, glancing up from the paper, Hi that all ? Is that the business of this town ?" "Oh, no," said we, "here is the Tribune with a few advertisements that don't ap pear in the JournaV He then counted two additional local business advertisements in the Tribune and again looked up, with the remark : "And that's all,. U it? Why, you haven't got near a3 much of a town as I thought you had. . : And then we explained to him that we have a great many business men who do not advertise. "They are not business men to hurt if they don't advertise," was bis" answer. We could not contradict him, and we were powerless to vindicate the "claims of the city." He left us, saying if he had time he would look around, but thought this was no place for him '' Robbed. A man from Slack river,named Enault, came to town Monday for the purpose of paying hi3 taxes, . Instead of doing so he went around among the saloons until he became very drunk. , Then he went to the Benton House and went to bed. In the morning lie found all his money gone, and complained that he had been robbed. He was sure that be counted his money before he went to bed, and there was four $5 bills and one $2 bill. The money was gone, of this there was no doubt, but to demonstrate th&t It was stolen from him after he went to bed would require more evidence than Enault Is able to give. The Pioneers. -,."." The annual meeting of the Pioneer As sociation took place on Thursday even ing in Ceuney's Hail. . It was largely attended by our old citizens.' and a cood time was enjoyed by all.

Long trips, however, are not considered healthy unle33 in company with sevens other individual?, armed with six-shooters, bowie knives, Winchester rifles, and other little trinkets incidental to com munities in state of actual warfare. The reasons for the development of this weakness on the part of the staid bur ghers of this town for murderous weap ons, is. tha t " Greaiers" from Mexico and roving bands of Comanche3 from "Chihauhau " generally, possess peculi arities not genial to the best interests of said burghers. These "Greasers" being deserted of God, and possessed by ' the devil, with evil intent and malice afore thought, do sieze. and appropriate to their own use, and for their own especial benefit, all the herds of cattle, horses and merchandise of si. cj nature, (there being no expense coudected with the transpor:ation.) and convey them to Mexico the jjlo., Grand being but tweuty ja'iles $btftbwet from this pl.ice. It will not strikeyou as strange, therefore, that our citizens generally, when they meet these marauding bands, should show au ir.c'inatian to argue the matter; and when the argument has diminished to a very fine point, the above named weapons a: c a very satisfactory and final means of settling any difference which haa arts .Mi in the past or ia.likelj to arise in thd future between the parties interested. In fact, on reconsideration of the subject, I believe that Colt's is used first, and the argument after.
