CHEBOYGAN, MICH., MAY 7, 1885. Even a number of old-line Democratic Jonrnalu insist that inch appointments to office as Pillsbury and Chaae are turn las: the raseala In instead of out. It is said that the threatened strike of the operators of the Western Union Tele graph Company has been averted, the tompany ' acceding to the demand for payment for extra time out in by the operators. It ia reported in Washington that the Testation of Judge Axtel, of the su 'preme court of New Mexleo, has been re quested by the Attorney General, with the understanding that should he not resign he will be removed. Owing to a change in the Treasurer of the United States, about 100 clerks and counters are engaged in counting: the moneys aud securities in the United 'State Treasury, and It is not expected they can complete the wwrk before the 15th lost. . Dr. Donald Maclean says: "Any thing done by the Legislature to hamper the medical colleges in procuring sub jects for dissection will be a mistake. Human bodies the student? must have, and if the bodies ef convicts are not al lowed them by law well, past expen ence shows what the result will be." The question of the annexation of Cu- "ba to the United States is being agitated at Washington and finds much favor among influential politicians. One of the arguments presented in favor is that of free sugar, which it is claimed would more than compensate for any invest ment mac migni nave to ne made to se cure the island, It is stated that there ia a large public sentiment on the island In favor of annexation. A statement prepared at the pension office shows that the business of the of fice during the month of April exceeded that of any previous months.' From this statement it appears that 5,370 ?'origin al" pension certificates have been issued during the month of April, 1835, against 3,711 during the same month last year, and that tho total number of pension certificates issued was 8,11)9, being 1.8G6 in excess of the number for April, 188-1. At the banquet at the opening of the new board of trade building in Chicago last week, Emory Storrs, in responaiiicr to thu toast upon railroads, remarked that the only thing remarkable about railroads was that "tho locomotive wa born in the same year as Mayor Harri son, and that both had been blowing off steam' ever since..' Emory wants to look out or Carter will have a libel suit against him for two or three millions of 4101 lars- - A cable dispatch from London to the daily prens, dated May 1st, says: "There is a slight relaxation in the tension of the relations of Russia and England. Russia appears disposed to entertain England's latest proposal to submit to the arbitration of ono of the crowned heads of Europe the question whether the convention ef March 17th was broken by Russia, It is believed that the king of Denmark will be elected as arbitrator in the evont of mediation being accept ed." The indications, from advices the lat ter part of last week, would seem to shew that the prospects were favorable for an amicable adjustment between England and Russia, the former, manifesting the willingness to accede to the demands of Russia in regard to the boundary line in dispute. Notwithstanding these indica tions, it would seem that both powers are still making all necessary prepara tions for a conflict. By some it is claim ed that the Gladtone ministry only adopts this policy for the purpose of gain ing more time to make preparations for the conflict and will, as soon as they are prepared, accept the smallest pretence for entering upon a conflict. While war between these powers is to be deprecated, many in the United States are hoping that the war may commence, as it would create a demand for supplies that would greatly depend upon this country to furnish. The Illinois Legislature, getting tired of balloting for a United States Senator, chartered ten sleeping cars and started on a junketing tour to New Orleans to take in the Exposition. There are twelve men tinder sentence of death in Ohio, and all will be hung In the penitentiary at Columbus in accord ance with the new'Uw requiring all hangings in the state to be within the walls ef the penitentiary. The Mormons are grieved and filled with murmurings and disgust because the United States Supreme Court has sustained the Edmund's law. The lead ers declare that polygamy is their relig ion and they will not give it up. Nev ertheless they keep on trying the leaders of the church and convicting them. Bom Houses of the Legislature Wed nesday of last week passed, almost by a unanimous vote, a joint resolution, whih was signed by Governor Alger, that temporarily bridges over the first sales of land delinquent for taxes for 1882, and advertised to be sold this week, nntll the Legislature can prepare and pass a .new tax law. ' They propose try ing to secure the enaetment of a law that will meet all objections' made by the Supreme Coart to the present law. A great many papers condemned Ad miral Jouett's wit hdrawal of the United States marines from Panama and have intimated that he had made a mistake. The result shows that they were mistak en and that Jonett who was on the ground, comprehended the situation and did the right thing. When the full truth was known, all credit him with aiting with great discretion and his ac tion in the premises has been fully en dorsed by Secretary Whitney. It is evi dent that the withdrawal ef the mariues resulted In the settlement of the trouble In. the best manner possible for tlw in terests of all concerned. The Commissioner of Pensions ha rendered a decision, subject to the ap proval of the Secretary of the interior, ou the pension application of Mrs. Em ma DeLong, widow of the late Lieuten ant Commander DeLong, of the Jeanette. The Commissioner holds that the officers and men who were on the Jeanette ex pedition were in the service of the Uni ted States, and that the order of the Sec retary of the Navy, detailing DeLong to special duty at New York and then to the command of the Jeanette expedition changed his 6tatus from an "absent on leaye" to that of ''active duty," and therefore entitles his widow to a pen sion. Governor Alger in a message to both Houses of the Legislature recommends that a beard consisting of four, two from each of the dominant political parties, wi(h such compensation as will secure able talent, be appoiated as an advisory board, whose duty shall be to investigate the cases of such convicts in our state prison and house of corrections as may apply for pardons, and report to the ex ecutive with such recommendations as in their judgment seems best either as to pardons, commutations, r non-action. After a full examination of each case is made, the recommendation so made to be acted upon by the executive as he in his judgment shall deem best. The case erf General Grant is a very singular one. A few weeks since his death was almost momentarily expected and his physicians said it was only a question of time when ho would have to Huccumb to the inevitable, but shortly his condition, began to Improve and has continued to do so until he has got so much better that last week he resumed his work on his book, the history of the late war. Thursday of last week he dic tated what will make about twenty-five pages of tho book. It Is to bo hoped that this improved condition may prove per manent, and notwithstanding the pre dictions of the doctors that his disease must necessarily prove fatal, that he will fully recover and be long spared to the country. . Washington telegrams ,to the daily press would indicate that Senatot Eus tls, of Louisiana, was not the only prom inent Democrat dissatisfied with the Gleveland administration. It is inti mated that leadiig Senators and Con gressman are making calculations for opening a regular broadside upon the present policy of the administration on the convening of the next Congress. The trouble is the appetite of the Democracy for office is .not receiving the relief the emergency demands, and the appoint ment of Republicans, even thoutrh mug wumps, to prominent positions, does not tend to produce a contented feeling among those in the Democratic ranks looking for positions which they think they ought to have. There is considerable discussion among Congressmen in Washington about the policy of calling an extra ses sion of Congress in the event of hostili ties between England and Russia, the preemption being an act might be pas-, led to amend the navigation laws so as to enable the transfer of foreign vessels to the American flag. Such a measure could not be proposed In any contingen cy without causing protracted debate and encountering most determined opposition. Higgins has mado out a list tf some 4.000 Republican office holders who do not come within the civil service rules, and he intimates that every one of them will bo dismissed before the glorious Fourth ef July. This will be good nt ws to hungry Democrats. Their patience is about being exhausted, but the assurance from Higgins that 4,000 of tlfem will be provided for by the above date may serve to alleviate their despair in the hopes that each may be one of the lucky ones to draw a prize. The London Standard editorially urg es that a public farewell dinner be giv en to the retiring American Minister to Great Britain. Mr. Lowell, who has al ways been ready to preside when pressed by presidents of councils on committees to honor them with his presence, aud whose after-dinner speeches were always attractive and genial. "We are happy to think," says the Standard, "that Americans are more and more finding a hoiiie among us,. Mr. Lowell himself ministered to the growth of this feeling and outrht not to be allowed to leave us without general indication of regret." The decrease in the public debt for April was $5,5(11,51)4 and for the ten months just ended $50,075,230, against $5,232,U75 and $87,000,471 for the corres ponding month aud ten months ef tho preceding fiscal year. Of outstanding called bonds only about $250,000 were presented for redemption during the month, the amount of these bonds still out being less than $2,000,000. The avail able cash balance is $155,816,041, an in crease of $2,000,000 sinoe April 1. De ducting what Mr. Jordan calls unavail able funds makes this balance $23,000, 000, an iucrsase of about $1,000,000 dur ing the month. The gold fund exceeds $243,000,000, but outstanding certificates show a marked increase, reducing the net gold to $118,000,000 u loss during the month of nearly $8,000,000. Tke Damocracy of Wisconsin are con siderably disgruntled over the appoint ment of J. II. Gregory, of that state as Indian Agent. Gregory, it is elaimed is a Republican and owes his appointment to the influence of Postmaster General Vilas. A leading Wisconsin Democrat says the whole story is this; "Colonel Vilas is a heavy stockholder in the Su perior Lumber Company, 'i his John II. Gregory has been book keeper of the lumber company until sometime ago. J. H. Knight, who is a stockholder in in -the lumber company, aud Colonel Vilas and, another gentleman, whose name I forget started a bank. They put Gregory in as cashier. So now he is recommended here tor , this place as a bank cashier. He is still in the employ of Colonel Vilas. Howeyer, the Chippe was are no longer supported by annui ties, but subsist from the products of their reservation. On their lands stand the tlne6t white pine in the Kerthwest, or anywhere in the country. It is cut and shipped down the lakes and the St, Lawrence to Europe. It is clear as day to me that the appointment of Gregory will result in the purchase of this white pine by the Superior Lumber Company at a vry low rate, and to tho exclusion of competitors." A Coming; Claim. From the Now York Tribune. A story which eomes from Charleston, South Carolina, has considerable inter est just now in view of the return of former rebels in large number to the place which they deserted in order to help the rebellion. According to this statement, the active demand for Con federate, bonds, which has two or three Limes been noticed, and which was com monly supposed to be altogether sense less, was in fact not without a meaning and practical object. It has long been known that a considerable fund, raisod for 'the uses of the rebel government abroad, remained at the close of the war undisbursed. It was eaid to be on de posit in the Bank of England, but not in the names of Confederate officials as snch. According to the report now cur rent, a consultation was held in regard to the disposition of this fund. It was determined that, as the only remaining assets of the late rcb9l government, this money rightfully belonged to the credit ors of that government who had taken its bonds. At the suggestion of Mr. Ben jamin, formerly of Louisiana, and since ihfi war of London, holders of Confeder ate bonds were advised by advertisement to make known their addresses. The persons in whose name the secret service fund was held then proceeded to negoti atfl for the surrendered the bonds upon payment of one or more of the coupons due. In many cases, it is stated, the bonds were given upon payment of a single coupon. In other rases more than one coupon was paid, until finally, ac cording to this report, the whole of the secret service fund was disbursed to the creditors of the dead rebellion. So far the story is not particularly dif ficult of belief. Mr. Benjamin and the other gentlemen who- acted as trustees for the fund were probably in snch a po sition that neither one of them could have absorbed any of it, even if he had been so disposed. Nor is there reason to believe that either of these men, though willing to violate their oaths toward the government of the United States, was dishonest in the sense that he would have been willing to secure any personal eain for himself at the risk of an accu sation of criminal breach of trust. But the question row arises, what has be come of these bonds? The story which is now circulated is that the Confederate bonds, after having been surrendered by the former holders, Were immediately destroyed. This is a shade too much for belief. There is not a prominent Confederate, whether skill ed in the law, as Mr. Benjamin undoubt edly was, or wholly unskilled, who has nbt persuaded himself that these bonds mast some day be paid by the United States government. Tho lawyer consid ers that the Confederacy had a certain legal status as a de facto government, and could hold assets and incur debts, and that its conquest entitled the con quering government to all the assets and altio made it liable for all the debts. Now that the "Confederacy is in the saddle again," Mr. Cleveland having been elect ed, we shall see before long claims made on behalf of the holders of Confederate bonds. Mr. Garland, as Attorney Gener al, is apt to treat this claim quite unlike that of the creditors against Virginia, and it will be interesting to observe in the not distant future what the Demo cratic Administration finds it eonveni et to do about such a claim. To reject it with scorn would be to cast reproach upon the memory of the rebellion, which it seems to be one of the principal objects of this Administration to keep ever fresh and green. I. E. DeGOWIN, Is the Man to BUY YOUR GROCERIES OF ! And Don't You Forget Tt J5grTho live grocery mon of Che boygan have come and gone, but De Gowm is at his new, reliable stand selling goods ch.ea.ner than anyone else dare Jo sell. Call and get prices and quality that can'; bo beat; DeGowin has struck it quite right at last, Down goes the prices and in comes the cash. Some grocerymen cry out ''it's a fraud and a cheat," Because my low prices they never can beat. But lfct them cry out aud whimper and whine, My geods are all paid for, of course they are mine. I bought them quita right, and this you will know, Or I never could sell them at prices so low. Some say I'll be bankrupt, but that's not a fact; I never wauted the benefit of any such act. Dollar for dollar I alwayg have paid, And never had a dollar but honestly made. I pay no high rent, nor drive fancy rigs; Can make a good living with profits not big. Five years I have labored right in this same town, thus paid for my store and goods now on hand. For all theso past favors I thank you kind friends; I am net of the sort that only pretends, But will sell you Groceries so cheap and so cheap, That no mortal in town In prices can beat. I. E.
