Capt. Ames, witli the Algomah, is

Acuity in making his way through the
ice in the strait and arrives and de
parts on time.
The range lights were lighted Wednes-
nesday night for the last time for this
winter unless the Algomah's time
should bo changed so as to bring her
here after dark.
. Way bill Xo. 1 for Cheboygan over

rived here Monday morning.

U. W. lodge are to be installed next Mon
day evening at their hall Odd Fellows
hall and a full attendance of the mem
bers of the order is desired.
Sugar making the latter part of De
ceinber is something unusual for north'
f m Michigan. A neighbor of Mrs. Crouse
who lives near Freedom, informs us that
the latter on Monday of last week gath
ered nine pails of sap.
There is a rumor that the mercury in
the thermometers captured zero two or
three nights this week. We have heard
of no positive proof of the matter, ' but
several evenings it was known to be
sneaking around that point.
Francis Kennell, of Munro township,
has left a potato at this office that is
quite a curiosity. It really is eleven po
tatoes in one, being comprised of oue
Urge one in tho center with ten others
cnHtered around it, the whole weighing
twi pounds ten ounces.
William Langmaid has rented the
1. .Jding recently occupied by II. Hale
Cobb as a laundry and next week will
open a boot and shoe shop. Mr. Lang
maids reputation as boot and shoe maker
is the very best and the location is a
. most excellent ono for the business.
R. J. Corrigan brought through a car
load of horses from Canada. They ar
rived at Oaylord Saturday and as there
was no train coming through until this
week the horses were unloaded and five
got loose and strayed away. At first it
was thought they had been stolen but
afterwards they were found this side of
Some of the larger cities were getting
uneasy about their ice supply for next
season, but (he indications now are thi.t
the ice manufactory will do a large
business between this and spring, so
that those who have been fearing a cor
ner in the ice cream crop next season
may rest easy in anticipation of an
abundant ice crop.
Last week we received the proceedings
of the third annual meeting of the
Northwestern Michigan Press Associa
tion, held at Cadillae last summer, print
id in pamphlet form. The fact that it
was printed at the Traverse City Herald
office is a sufficient guarantee that it
- was a neat job. The Herald turns out
no other kind of work.
The residence of Chas. R. Kniffln at
Freedom was burned Tuesday night.
Mr. Kniffin is postmaster and kept the
office at his honse and we understand
lost a number of postage stamps, that
were burned. He also lost a consider
able portion of his household effects.
Some of the men working on the rail
road, who boarded with Mr. Kniffin, lost
Fome of their effects.
Capt. J. W. Brown while in Detroit
was shown the preliminary drawings of
the new car ferry boat to bo used in
transferring cars across the straits, Tho
plans were for a boat of 270 feet koel,
50 feet beam, with a capacity of 21 cars
at each trip. The boat in the drawing
was named tho "Ice King." This was
only the fancy of the draughtsman but
would bo quite appropriate should the
cratt meet expectations when completed.
The plans 'provided for twin screw
wheels to propel her.
More new type at the Tribune office
this week. ! 1
Another family made hapy Mrs. Or
lando Pitcher a boy Thursday.

morning for Ionia with William Winn,
who was sentenced to that institution
for 90 days for larceny.
E. A. Dodge, postmaster at Mullet
Lake, has deputized Joseph Rife to act
as such, and the office, we understand
has been removed to the latter'a
A recent ruling of the postofflce de
partment at Washington makes useless
all stamps which have their corner torn
off. Just how mnch of a corner the
ruling does not say.
The new tubing and tools for the salt
well arrived Wednesday evening. Work
has been again commenced and they
keep picking away trying to get that
hole down to salt. They are bound to
find It, if it is there.
John Mason, the salt well contractor,
buried a little son last week. The child
took 6ick after Mr. Mason arrived home,
and only lived a few days thereafter. Mr.
Mason has the sympathy of his many
friends in our village.
. Some of our lumbermen fearing a
scarcity of'snow have been making ice
roads for drawing logs. McArthur'
Smith & Co., we understand, have one
in good condition and working succes-
fully, and that Nelson & Bullen are

was given two days to find bail, and he

We are glad to announce that Geo. E.
Frost.clerk of the Congregational church
received a letter from Rev. A. H. Lowrie
last Saturday evening, accepting the
call to become pastor of that church.
Mr. Lowrie writes that he is coming with
the Intention of fully identifying himself
with tne future prosperity of Cheboygan.
The acceptance of the call is very grati
fying to all who made the acquaintance
of Mr. Lowrie, or heard him preach, dur
ing his recent visit to our village.
A number of our builders complain
very much about the manner the plans
and specifications for the addition to
the Town Hall were drawn up. They
say it was impossible for any one to put
in a bid understandingly as the specifi
cations gave but few dimensions of the
timber and material to be used in the
construction. In consequence of this,
it ie claimed, only two bids for the work
were presented. The contract was
awarded by council to Alex. McDonald.
We notice several newspapers in the
northern part of the state are "opening
out their batteries ' upon Indian Agent
Lee, with reference to his conduct in re
gard to the small pox among the In
dians in that section of the state. The
Charlevoix Sentinel even goes so far as
to intimate that the interests of the In
dians would not suffer if the Indian agen
cy, of which Mr. Lee is the head, was
abolished. We would suggest milder
measures in the way of a change in
agents first. If that did not improve mat
ters then the heroic system might be re
Hon. Andrew Jackson, who was ap
pointed assistant superintendent of the
Sault canal when it passed under gov
ernment control, has Just received notice
of his promotion to the clerkship at a
salary of l,800.per year. Tho appoint
ment took effect January 1st. George
Reynolds of the Sault was appointed to
the vacancy caused by Mr. Jackson's pro
motion. This was Mr. Jackson's "New
Years gift" and we congratulate him
upon his good fortune. He assumes the
duties of the position at once, in the U.
S. engineer's office, in Detroit, where he
will remain until the opening of navi
gation when, of course, he will go to the
We learn from Col. Thompson, Gener
al Superintendent of the railway mail
service, that it usually takes about four
weeks from the opening of a railroad for
general business before arrangements
can be effected for regularly established
mail service. Everything that can bo
done by Col. Thompson, or Mr. Lovell,
superintendent of this division, has been
done to secure the early establishment
of the service. However if the railroad
company will sign an agreement to car
ry the mail free until such a time as tho
preliminaries can be arranged and a
regular contract made, the service can
be put on at once. We understand that

Manv of our citizens will, doubtless,
remember Dr. J. B. Truax, who, some
years since, practiced in our village. We
received a letter from him this week re
questing a copy of the Tribune. He
and son are practicing medicine in In
dian Territory. We not only forwarded
him a copy of the Tribune but also one
of the Democrat that he might see the
progress Cheboygan newspapers had
made since he left our village, which
was in the days the Cheboygan Indepen
dent was the only paper published here.
Under the time table as now arranged
for the railroad if the mail should come
through from Detroit by rail, while let
ters and the Evening News would come
to hand earlier than they do now, the
morning papers would not arrive as
early as they have been doing for some
days past by two or three hours, the
train leaving Detroit in the evening and
reaching here late in the afternoon next
day,' thus it would bring the morning
papers of the day previous, the same as
the route by Petoskeydoes at present.
