Notices were posted up during the early part of the week announcing that a ''Democratic caucus" would be held at the Court House on Wednesday after noon, but previous to the time of meet ing it was ascertained that the Board of Supervisors had forbidden tha use of the building for town or village caucuses. It was then decided to hold the same in George Paquett's building, and quite a number gathered there, but there be ing no fire, notwithstanding th; Democ racy were "red hot" for a straight ticket, they did not relish the cold, and J ustice Sutton's offic3 being offered for the pur pose, all adjourned for that place."

It was suggested that 'the candidates get together and make arrangements to pay for the printing of tickets. " A. P. Newton jocosely . moved that the village pay for the printing of the same.

Iouis Jolie, of Mackinaw, was in town the early part of the week, and when he was ready to start hence found that his mittens which he had left in the Spen cer House office were so much lost that a dilligent search failed to find them. . Mr. Spencer soon suspected that they were stolen, and that a dead beat, known as 1 Jimmy D in," was the thief, as that in dividual had been seen hanging around a short time previous to the loss being dis covered. The suspected man had a!re ;dy started for his home over at ' the Point, but Mr. -Julie cime up with him on the road, but he denied all knowledge of the mittens. The next morning Mr. 'Jolie went to the young man's house and dis covered a member of his family , trying the mittens on. They were given up without argument. Whether there will be any further proceedings or not we have not learned, but he had better. make himself scares about the Spencer House. Mackinaw Caucus. - The electors of town of Mackinaw have placed the following candidates in, nomi nation for their respective town offices : Supervisor James Lasley. ' Clerk Benoni Lachance. , Treasurer Michael 3Iulcrbne. School Inspector John Biddle. Superintendent of Schools Edwin C. Gaskill. Commissioner of Highwavs Wm. P. Preston. ; Justice of the Peace Patrick McCann. Constables William 'Marshall, Wil liam H. Taylor, I Andre wj J.! Chapman, Edward A. Bouchard. ' The Ticket." Many of our most prominent citizens of both parties have expressed them selves heartily in accordance with the Tkibune, in the opinion .that it is not for ,the best interests of the' place that local elections should' be carried ori in accordance with the tactics of party pol itics. A few Democrats wrho, perhaps, may be considered the leaders of that party in the village, thought differently, and issued a call for a. straight "Demo cratic caucus." That caucus met and placed in nomination a straight Demo cratic ticket for both., township and. vil lage officers.1 The ticket in the main is a good one ; as good, probably, as a citizens meeting would" have uominated. As far as we can learn there will prob ably be no opposition to ' it All that we desire ; is that administration of our local affairs be in the hands of con scientious and competent perspni, wheth er they be Democrats or Republicans. We know that this is the feeling of the large majority .of our citizens. , If it is any gratification to a few men that the administration of our lccil affairs be en tirely in the hands of Democrats, we think it well to gratify them as long as they select good men. Party lines have never been drawn here in these affairs, and we trust that there will not 1q a con test on that basis. A .0 THE RAILROAD. The Mackinaw and Marquette , Railroad no Longer ', " , in r Doubt. ' . .. '.' The Contract For Its Construction Let Last Thursday. Special telegram to the Northern TkiBujie. -tLa'nsino, Micil, 'March 30. ; The. contract for the construction of the Mackinaw -& Marquette railroad was let to day by ! the Board of Control,' to eastern . parties, represented by II. B. Crosby, of Jew Yurk.'. . .The above telegram explains itself. The' news will be hailed . with . joy' b.v every person interested in the prosperity and growth of Northern Michigan! The efforts of the road will be felt not only through the .-country. -through which it passes, but. it will add to the growth of the -entire; state, The, commencement aud completion of the. road.. means more to Cheboygan, however, than to almost, any other place in Michigan, unless it be Marquette It means railroad communi cation to : Cheboygan at; no distant day. There is no. doubt hut that the Jackson, Lansing & Saginaw road will be pushed forward at least rapidly enough to make conneption with this road at soon as com pleted. ; That road will come to Cheboy gan, it may no tnat tne urana . itapius & Indiana road will also run 'to Macki naw via Cheboygan. ; It is contended by many that this is the most feasible route. The construction of this road means that Cheboygan .will , soon take ; the place which properly oolongs to it the leading town of Northern Michigan. .' Nothing has yet been learned regard ing the particulars of the contract, but it is presumed that-it will be completed in two years. Cheboygan can, therefore, feel witli some degree .of assurance that a railroad will reach here wi.hiu that time. - ) ' The Improvement Association. We hope that the rxcitcmenr. of tha coming election.-, Mondny and Tuesday, will not so engross the minds of cur people that the members of the Improve ment association will neglect to attend the meeting next Tuesday night. For the past two months it has so happened that the meetings have occuirnF upon been a very meager attendai.c?. It is highly important that the next meeting should be weirattem'cJ. The busy sea son U almost upon us ; the season when more can be done to advance the inter ests of Cheboygan than at any ether tim.;. Some definite plan of campaign should be determined upon. As soon as naviga tion opens there will be a large number of settlers floek here. The association can do much with them in getting them to influence their friends in favor of this country. Many will also come hc.e respecting tbee shculd be looked af ter. In short there is much which could be done to advantage, and we hope to see a large attendance next Tuesday cv; 7 ning. Jhe meeting will be held in Cueny's Halh rEtlSONAL. Mr. P. M. Lathrop arrived home on Thursday. He was absent nearly three weeks. : Mri "Wm. Shultz, formerly of this place, but now of Chicago, has been pay ing his many friends here a visit during the week. ' "Mr. Peter McRae leltlown for Saginaw yesterday morning. . i II. W. Overhall, Esq., of Mackinaw, was snow bound in town several days this week.. He returned home ou Fri day. . - .Thompson Smith went outside last Welnesday. He expe?tcd to be absent ten days or two weeks. Mr. J. F. Jessup and family will re move to Grand Rapids next week. A Bad Cut. Last Thursday Sam MacCoit was .in Devine's saloon, somewhat under the in fluence of liquor. There were -some other parties in the saloon who started to go out but he did not desire them to do so, and tried to prevent them, when In some manner he run his right hand through the glass in the door cutting a gash about three Inches ' long in. his wrist. The result was a large flow of blood and a visit to the doctor' 's office, wheri the cut was plastered up. Can He Do It Every Bay. A short time since a man named Sam Rivers, at work for ; Daniel "Wheelock, performed a days work, which Mr. Wheelock thinks deserving to be placed on record beside some of the logging business mentioned. Rivers cut down a maple tree and cut out of the body of the tree rive cords of twenty inch wood, and piled it up, completing his job in just nine hours and twenty minutes. A Small Sized Bow. Yesterday afternoon two rreii Pat Grant aiid Chas. Sorrow," had a little al tercation ,in 'Slipper' Jim's" sfdoon, which ended in Grant striking Sorrtw upon the nose, cutting quite a gash. It is rumored that tho cut was made with a knife; but be that as it may.it is probably not of a very serious nature. ; NO: 38: I STATE NEWS.
