THE NORTHERN TRIBUNE, JANUARY 7, 1882.
SATURDAY, JANUARY 7. 1882.
Circuit court meets two weeks from
uext Tuesday, the 24th day of January.
Judge Ramsdell will preside.
The Cheboygan Lumber company has
a boom strung across the river, from the
upper end of Baker's dock to near where
the tie elevator stands, for the purpose
of catching logs which are to hauled to
and put in the river from the banks
The American express company have
established an office in our village. X. S.
Cooper, of Kenburg & Cooper, has been
appointed agent and the office is at the
Central drug store. The general ver
dict is that Mr. Cooper is the right man
in the right place.
An oyster supper and social gathering
will be given at the Town Hall next
Thursday evening, by the ladies of the
Catholic church. A handsome card re
ceiver will be presented to the lady re
ceiving the highest number of votes a9
the most popular lady of Cheboygan.
The directors of the Cheboygan Coun
ty Pioneer society are talking of arrang
ing for an excursion to Bay City, to take
the place of their annual party and dance,
providing they can get satisfactory rates
from the railroad company. We have
no doubt a large party could be secured
to take it in if the fare was made reason
able. Harbor Springs had the most accepta
ble New Years gift received on the con
tinent. It was a new railroad; a full
grown one; too large for even a Che
boygan girl's stocking. Emmet County
Independent What do iou know about
Cheboygan girl's stockings? They are
not in the habit of exhibiting ihem to
Post & YanArsdale have about decided
to erect a new building next season for
their hardware store. Should they do so
the building will be of brick, 3G by 110
feet, and two stories high. They need it
to accommodate their business and we
have no doubt, if they do build, that
they will have one of the finest stores in
The work of repairing the bridge at
John F. McDonald's is progressing. Yes
terday they commenced putting up the
timbers of the main truss. The span
over the main channel is to be raised
two feet higher than the old bridge; and
the approaches raised to correspond, so
that the stamers can pass under readilv
without having to lower their smoke
Quite a large party took advantage of
the first sleighing of tho season to pay
Mr. and Mrs. W. B.Ellis a visit at their
home on Mullet Lake. The fact that
they visited Mr. and Mrs. Ellis is a suf
ficient guarantee that a good time was
enjoyed. They knowHiow to entertain
such parties. The "boys" were on hand
early this morning to attend to business
for the day.
Since the advent of the railroad Mack
inac City has been haying quite a "boom''
in the way of building and the promise
for the future is very encouraging. Next
season, from present Indications, will
see quite a town built up on this side of
the straits with all kinds of business
represented. We hear of several differ
ent stores that it is expected will bo
started at that point early in the spring.
Let her "boom."
The Chippewa County News says: "A.
Mathews, of Marquette, it is reported,
has located with Porterfield scrip land
covered by the new canal and extending
south to Portage street. Byron B. Adsit
in 1859, we are informed, obtained, un
der the pre-emption act, a certificate for
a patent of this and other land, and
William P. Spaulding, of the "Soo." is
his grantee, and has already given notice
to adverse claimants, of his rights."
Warren Waterman came in fromcamp
near Vanderbilt, this week and reports
their lumbering operations progressing
finely, their force banking about 100,000
feet per day. He reports more snow there
than here. They have expended a great
deal of timo and labor on their logging
road and have it in excellent condition
They will have 1,000,000 feet baukedby
the middle of next week, and expect to
put In about 4,000,000 feet this winter.
A comparison of the weather of last
month with that of December, 1880
shows a marked difference, especially at
the close of the month. The last week
of the month in 1880 being , extremely
cold. ' On the 28th the mercury never
went higher than 59 below zero, being
6 below at sunrise, 5 at noon and 9 at
sunset. The 29th at sunrise it was 10
below, at noon, just at 0 and sunset 7
bove, Onthe30Uit stood 13 below
at sunrise, 0 at noon, and 1 above at sun
set. Up to the last of December 1880 there
had fallen five and a half feet of snow,
and lumbermen were complaining of
having too much of the beautiful.
Chas. II. Eby, at the City Bakery has
just finished one of the flnest pieces of
work in the cake line that was ever made
in Cheboygan. It is a wedding cake for
the occasion of Patrick Moloney's mar
riage, which is to take place next Mon
day, Yesterday morning a large owl was
sporting around the lower part of the
village in the neighborhood of the docks,
flying from chimney to chimney. At
last it lit on the chimney of the resi
dence of Charles Brannack, Jr., and his
son Frank shot it.
The Gluteal! Trial.
To the great relief of the country It is
announced that the evidence in the Gui
teau trial is all in and the prospects are
that the great farce, that has occupied
the stage at Washington for so many
days, will soon close. The counsel for
the defense presented their law points
to the judge yesterday morning. His
honor was to rule upon them this morn
ing, immediately after opening court.
Davidge was then to make the opening
argnment for the prosecution, which
will probably occupy the entire day.
Scoville will reply for the defense on
Monday, and will be followed by Colonel
Reed and Guiteau, who will be permitted
to address the jury if he desires to do so.
Judge Porter will make the closing ar
gument to the jury. Scoville remarked
Thursday morning that he did not think
the argument would consume more than
four days. If this expectation is realiz
ed the case will probably go the jury not
later than Thursday next.
