keep the road open during the 'snows of
winter. We trust the information may
be reliable. Cheboygan missed the
Dight train very much last winter.

The chances are that the October term
of court will be by Judge Rams
dell and adjourned until after the
Presidential election. The attorneys
yesterday agreed to such an adjourn
ment and a telegram was sent Judge
Ramsdell requesting him to notify Sher
iff Harrington not to summon the jury
at present The term will probably be
held the latter part of November or the
first ot December, as best suits the con
venience of tho Judge. The Judge will
be here at the regular time as there are
some prisoners awaiting sentence, and
will open court for the purpose of pass
ing sentences and then adjourn, as re
quested. Rev. T. B. Leitn preached his farewdll
sermon at the M. E. Church last Sunday

preached a yery interesting discourse
and gave a brief resume of the work
that had been accomplished during bis
pastorate, showing the amount of money
raised for the different church purposes
and how it had been expended and the
number added to the membership of the
church. Mr. and Mrs.Leith and family
left for their new field of labor, at nar
risville yesterday on the City of Cleve
land. F. M. Sammons, the father of Green
backism in Cheboygan eounty, has blos
somed out into a full fledged Republican
ovt in Dakota. He was long a leading
Democrat in this county, but some years
ago took up with the Greenback doo
triue. He probably got his oyes open by
seeing how the young territory, with
whom he has identified himself, wan
treated by the Democratic Houso. Da
kota, with a population of G00.000, a ter
ritory that the Income of the postofflces
more than pays the postal expenses ex
pended by the general government for
the benefit of its citizens, which is more
than two-thirds of the states do, knocked
at the door ot the House and asked for
admittance as a state, a privilege
they were justly entitled to, but the
the Demoeratio majority, with an utter
disregard of jestice, refused to admit
them, the only reason being the fact
that the territory is Republican by a
large majority. Oh! yes, the Democrats
are dear friends of the people when
they think they can get their yotes, but
when the votes would count on the other
side, as in Dakota, their rogard for the
rights of the people cea?e. It is eyer
thus with Democracy.
