The Independent Ticket.
All independent township ticket has
been put forward by prominent citizens
of both political parties. The ticket, as
it appears at tbe head of our columns, is
worthy the support of every citizen of
the township who cares more for the in
terest of the town than the advancement
of members of the "ring," or those
working In that interest. Jt was not be
cause of any desire on the part of those
arranging this ticVct that persons of any
particular political party should be elect
ed to office, but because they desired that
only men who have the entire confidence
of the community should administer the
affairs of the township. They have,
therefore, only selected nominees in the
place of objectionable names which ap
pear on the ticket already in the field.
Had the Democratic caucus nominated a
ticket throughout as satisfactory to the
people as the names left upon the ticket
we present, there would have been uo
opposition to it. Otherwise, had the
people of the Democratic party, and not
the ring, dictated the nominations, there
is very little doubt but that an unobjec
tionable ticket would been the result.
Changes have been made only in the
offices ol Treasurer, Justice of the Peace
and School Inspector. For Treasurer,
Henry A. Todd has been placed in nom
ination. Mr. Todd has held the office
for the past two years, and a better
Treasurer the town has never had. Be
cause he refused to ioin the office hold
ing ring in their scheme for increasing
thfir salarit?,vhen theirk,slaiev was made
up he was left off. This ring dictaion
should be rebuked, and a flrst-cl Us officer
obtained by the election of II. A. Todd'
Treasurer, by a large majority.
For Justice ol the Peace, Samuel EL
Taylor lias been nominated. Mr. Taylor
is a young man. who has no superior in
qualifications for the portion, and during
the years that he baa lived Lere he ha
won the good opinion and confidence of
all. Against the candid. ne on the op
posing ticket, there is every reason why
he should receive tho votes of all who
have the welfare, and reputation and
best interests oT the town at heart. It is
for the citizens of the town to decide
whether the present incumbent, who is
the ring nominee, in his official tru: in
actions for the past three years. ha
shown such qualifications for the posi
tion as should be recognized by a re
election. The record of the two candi
dates .are known to all, and in our mind
there is no doubt as to what the result
O. B. Weed, Esq., has been nominated
for School Inspector, in place of Mr. P.
A.Inglesby. The difference in the qualiti
cations of the two men are so well known
that limply calling the attention of
the public to this ticket is all that is nec
essary. With the exceptions above named, the
ticket previously nominated was en
dorsed, thus forming a ticket which
merits the support and suffrages of all.
How It Was Done.
Unit' does not reign in the Democratic
party in this village. Muttering
against the tickets nominated, amount
ing to almost mutiny, are heard from
many sources, me '"ring is not over
well pleased with the result, because
they were compelled, by threats of open
rebellion in the party, to drop their can
didate for supervisor and take up with a
man whom they hoped would cany the
rest of the ticket through. The be-t
elements ot the nartv, those who
work for the best interests of the place
do not like the ticket,
because all the ticket, but
supervisor, was made up from
the ring slnte. So joy does not
reign supreme. There are some demo
crats who attended the caucus who do
not'exactly understand how thirty-two
or three Jnaftctt present can cast forty
three votes ; nor how one person eafc
honestly cast four votes tor one of the
ring candidates; nor how Canadians who
are entitled to no vote in the election are
entitled to cast their votes for the ring
candidates in the caucus. They have
come to the conclusion that it is quite
difficult to beat the ring when such tac
tics are adopted. The ring went in the
caucus to win, and did so. It now re
mains to be seen whether the people will
sustain all these machine-made nomina
tions, as far as the candidates who are
members of the office holding, office
seeking ring are concerned, or not.

A BOLD ROBBERY.
Burglars Ransack Charlie Farr'a
Residence, Iflakinff a lioort Haul. .
In the extra issue of the Tribune on
Tuesday the public were first made
aware of the fact that Mr. Patterson's
residence was burglarized during his
absence. Before the people had time to
get over their surprise about this, they
were made aware that another robbery,
still more bold and of greater proportions,
had been committed. Tuesday night,
during the absence of himself and fam
ily at the happy seven entertainment, the
residence of Charlie Fai r was entered and
a large amount of valual le property taken.
The thies entered by breaking in the back
door, and everything In the house was
ransacked. Mr. and Mrs. Farr's clothing
was nearly all taken, or what was almost
as bad, if ttyey did not take all, only
portions ot a suit were left. The silver
spoons, forks and knives were taken, but
for some reason a silver cake basket and
castor were left. The value of the prop
erty taken is estimated by Mr. Farr at
not less than two hundred dollars. As
yet no clue has been obtained to the
thieves, although the officers have been
dilligently at work. One house was
searched on suspicion, but nothing was
found. During the evening on which
the robbery was committed, a little giil
of Mr. W. I. Milliken, who lives next
door, saw a man goin to the house and
spoke of it, but of course nothing was
thought of it. Xot enough attention
was paid to him to give any description
ot him. It is very likely that jboth bur
glaries were committed by the same
party. It is to be sincerely hoped that
they will be detected hefors long, but in
tbe mean time our citizens had better
exercise a little care, and be prepared to
giye them a warm reception.

Jlorc Hoorn Needed.
All that is needed to show how rapid
ly that Cbeboygan is acbieviog a repu
tation as a summer resort, is to state that
almost If not quite every room in our
hotels and private houses which are ar
ranged for tbe accommodation of sum
mer visitors are already engaged, and rip
plications are constantly being made
from others who wish to come. "We hear
trom all sources that there are many who
expect to come here who have either
been here before or who have heard of
the superior attractions of tbe viciuity
from others. We have no doubt bur
that there will be many more pleasure
seekers here the cominc Mimmcr, than
ever befor4 and we hope that arrange
ments and room can be made to accommo
date all who desire to come. If the IncrtBM
is such as we are led to expect, it will not
be man' years before our hotel facilities
will have to largely increased.
X. T. Va.11 Ardu.lc.
Tbe Tribune has never made "party
a qualification for local offices, but is al
ways willing to help elect all good men
to these offices, regardless of their party
affiliations. The candidate for super
visor. T. T. Van Arsdale, whom the
Democrats have put forward, is a man of
sterling worth and integrity, one whom
it would be a credit to any town to bav
at the head of its affairs. It docs not
matter to us wbal causes or eombiuatiot s
led to his nomination ; we are satisfied
that he will work for the best interests
of the township, and not be the tool ot
any ring or clique ; therefore we can
cheerlully recommend him to the suf
frages ot our citizens, regardless of party.
We wish we could say as much lor all
the rest of the ticket.
The School Board had a meeting Mon
day night, aud among the other business
transacted they emploved Mr. Weed to
take charge of the schools for the com
ing year. The employment of the real
ol the teachers was postponed until some
future time. It was decided to employ
two teachers, instead of one, iu the pri
mary department. Applications are,
therefore, still in order for the interme
diate and primary departments.

The above statcmeU shows that the
result of the winter's operation is the
largest stock of logs ever put in the
Cheboygan waters. Tl e grand total, re
ducing the square a id board timber to
board measure, is in round numbers 57,- '
000.000 feet, w hich is fully 10,000,000 feet
more than was ever put in before.
The winter, on the whole, has been
quite a favorable one for the logging op
erations, although in February most of
the operators ha ! to work at some dis
advantages on rxc unt of the warm
I weather and lack of snow. No logs
w ere got out for Smith Bro'4 mill or for
Mattnon & Barclay's mill. These mills
will probably not run unless a supply of
logs is obtained from some of the jobbers.
The icst of the mills will have a full
supply of logs to keep them running at
their full capacit .
