Earthquakes In Michigan.
Tha anrthnnakfl Frldav last was the
third occurring in this region of which
there is any record, although judging
from the disturbed appoarance of the
rocks in the Lake Superior region and
the native mttallle metals gold, silver
and eopper there must nave Deen a
soms remote period a far peverer shake
than any of which ws have any knowl
edge. The first shock of which we have
any record occurred in lbiz ine.eeouu
in 1869, both of which were slight, and
as described in Roberts ,,Clty of the

that of Friday last. A resident or mis

Michigan Visited by an Ea thquake.
Between 2:15 and 3 o'clock Friday after
noon several towns in Michigan, Ohio,
and Indiana were shaken by an earth
quake of a few seconds duration, the os
cillations being more perceptible in the
upper stories of structures. Tableware
was dashed to the floor, furniture dis
turbed, and windows wrecked, alarming
the inmates, who, in many instances,
fled tfanic-stricken to the streets. At
Detroit the quake was severely felt and
the river rose some Inches. The Metho
dist Confernance and Ladies' Missionary
Society In session at Definance, Ohiov,
hastily quitted the building which they
occupied; and the disturbance almost
caused a panie at a reunion In Ottawa,
Ohio, Children in the schools at Indian
apolis became alarmed, and occupants
of railroad depots in the sections visited
imagined that a locomotive had collided
with the buildings. A rumbling sound
was heard in some places, resembling a
distant explosion. Tremors were also
felt in portions of Canada, Kentucky,
and West Virginia, and were so severe
In the suburbs of Cincinnati as to terriiy
the Children in the schools. A shock
was felt by printers In a newspaper
office at Dubuque at 2:05 o'clock in the
morning.
"Every Man Ills Own Saloon Keeper."
Hon. Robert White of East Tawas, who
was a delegate to the Democratic con
vention in this city, was interviewed by
the Tribune reporter relative to the mor
al effect of prohibition at Tawas. The
village authorities have made it a
prohibition town. There is not a public
saloon in the place although several at
tempts have been made to establish one.
Said Mr. White: "You may not believe
it, but that prohibition is one of the
worst thidgs that could have happened
to our place. It has made every man his
wn saloon keeper. Tnat is to say,those
wh are inclined to drlak, carry the
liquor in bottles la their pocket. But
it's a regular bonanza for the shore
boats. Their bars sells an immease
amount of liqsor between the two vil
lages." Bay City Tribune.
