The Labor Journal published at Alne- na, eays the wages for river drivers in that region range from $1.00 to $1.00 per day, and also, that over 000 laborine men were awaiting the arrival of steam ers so a to get awty from that town. With snch excess of laborers in the mar ket is It any wonder that wages are low? J. F. Moloney left last week for Grand Marais, but on reaching Seney he dis covered it was impossible to get through to that place with a team. A man who had just came through informed him that the snow was still three feet dftpn in the swamps. He returned home Mon day morning, and will again attempt to mae the trip in a few days. The strike of tho river drivers has ef fected hotels and boarding house keepers quite seriously. Many of the men were behind with their board and depended on the drive for sufficient to straighten up with, but instead of that the hotels are forced to board them as long as the strike last?, or until they can get other employment. Village President Barker, of Sault Ste. Mario, advanced that burg $023.83 to pay the ft?es of Washington lawyers in order to secure a claim which they had suc cessfully prosecuted, but which they would not turn oyer until their feewere paid. There' was only 53 cents ia the contingent fund of the village, and hence something had to be done, and President uarker did it. The entertainment given at the Opera House on Friday evening for the benefit or the M. E. Church passed off most suc cessfully. The programme which was quite lengthy, wis well arranged and admirably carried out. All parties par ticipating deserve credit for the manner in which they performed their different parts. The society realized $23.K from the entertainment. This' evening at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. J. II. Waterman George E. Lrost and Mrs. Emma C. Freeman, their daughter, will be united m marriage. only the intimate friend being: invited. The Interested parties are well known in Cheboygan and deservedly popular.

E. church will give a, maple suar sugar social at the church to-morrow evening. All are most cordially invited to attend. Tickets 25 eents. Refresh ments served from 6 to 10 P. 31. A general clean-up seems to be the order of the day in almost eyery city, town and village in the country and Che boygan should not neglect this impor taut duty. "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," and don't cost half so much. E. Nelson, learning that some of the disaffected riyer drivers had started. Tuesday to try and create dissatiafaetton among th me.i in the employ of the Cheboygan Lumber Company, started by team Tuesday evening to reach the drive before they did. The two St. Ienace papers are again having a wordy war and indulging in uncalled for personalities. Taken les sor gentleman from the serenity that hovers about the journalistic fold iu Cheboygan and your readers will rise up and call you blesssed. We hear considerable complaint this spring about well water. The severe frosts of the past winter have sprung the tubing and let in surface water. Oar citizens should be careful about the use of such water as it is a fruitful source of disease. The best way Is to first bcil all water used and then filter it. E IT. Hayen, of Chicago, deputy grand commander for the state of Michigan of the Select Knights of the A. 0. U. Y.( favored the Tribcnr ofilee with several calls during his stay in Cheboygan. We found him a most genial gentleman and greatly interested ia th a order which he represents. Any ledee of A. 0. U. W. in the state that may wish to form a legion of Select Knights can obtain all neces sary information by -Addresln him at 100 South Water strett. Chicago. As cvlt citizens did not observe Arbor Day on account of too much snow for tree planting, we would suggest now that the snow is gone and the frost out df the ground that seme attention be paid to the planting of shade trees. It has been demonstrated that they can be made grow, and there is nothing that adis more to the handsome appearance of a town than tows of beautiful shade trees along the streets. A little time and attention paid now, will in a tew years greatly improve our village in this respeet. Capt. J. W. Brown of the Messenger says he intends having everything about his eraft as near perfection as possible and is using his best endeavors to ac complish this end. She has been thor oughly repainted inside and out. Her outfit is being overhauled and improved. A new carpet Is being pat down in her after cabin, her state rooms' put In tho best of shape and everything about be tokens care for the eomfort and pleasure of his passengers. There is no reason why the Messenger shoald Lot meet with favor from the traveling public and secure her share of the business on the route. . , ' The officers of the M. E. church wish to return thanks to those who so gener ously assisted in giving the entertain ment on Friday evening last for the benefit of the church. - George L. Colwell has taken a season contract to run the propeller Colwell aid tow between Cheboygan and T ona wanda with lumber for Thompson, Smith & Co., of the former place, at Bay City rates. Inland Marine. , A man named Curtis, returning from an attempt to shoot ducks at the mouth of the river, Friday evening stumbled and fell from McArthur's dock into .the river. It was a cold bath and a danger ous place where he fell in, but he climb ed out without assistance. He left his gun at the bottom of the river. The Van Raalte has been considerably improved and will put in her appear ance ou her new route lookin A. No. K She has been repaiuted inside and out, her main deck repaired, new bulwarks forward and tho concave portion of hull replanked, so-that she is in excellent condition for her season's business. Since the adyent of mild weather many sportsmen have been shooting ducks at the month of the river. This is wrong, as every duek killed now moans four ducks short next fall. Be sides, they are not as good now as thev will be then. Genuine sportsmen should let the ducks off easy at thij season of the year. Cheboygan, as usual, showed its en terprise in securing the third legion in Michigan of the Select Knights. Niles has Legion No. 1, Detroit Legion No. 2 and the following places were worklug for No. 3 long before nn attempt was made to effect an organization here: Grand Rapids, Manistee, Iahpeming, IJattle Creek, Jackson; Oscoda. Ypsilantl. Albion and Berrien Springs, but Cheboy gan stepped in and took the prize, by or ganizing Cheboygan Legion No. 3 of S.
