The Board of World's Fair Man
agers for Michigan are preparing a
Statistical Pamphlet illustrative of
the Resources of Michigan, in con
nection with the Michigan Exhibit
at the World's Columbian Exposi
tion. One of the most important fea
tures of the State, in a material
point of view, is found in the in
dustrial and economic value of its
Water Power. It is desired to give
a full report on this feature of
our States as possible. To this end
the Board have employed Mr. S. B.
McCracken, of Detroit, who pre
pared the statistical pamphlet for the
Centennial Exhibition of 1876, to
give his special attention to the pre
paration of a chapter on this most
important topic.
No hydrographic survey of the
State has ever been made, and in
view of the brief time intervening,
the information sought for must of
necessity be of a summary charac
ter, and such as can be obtained
through correspondence.' The spec
ial points on which Information
is dcsired, are : Location, of power,
whether iir -roved or unimproved;
the fall atcUJerent points; average
volume 6l water: reservoirs or
sources of supply, as lakes etc.; ex
tent of water shea.
r The volume of water may bo stat
ed by inches or by its horse power
capacity, or both.
It is desired, as far as practicable,
to procure this information by dis
tricts, as for example, the Saginaw
Valley, St. Joseph Valley, Grand
River Valley, Muskegon System,
etc. This will include not only the
rivers whose names the several lo
calities bear, but their confluents as
well. It will be readily understood
that the information asked for must
of necessity be approximate only.
Absolute accuracy cannot, under
the circumstances, be looked for.
Hon. Henry P. Baldwin, ex-governor
and also ex-Senator of Mich
igan, died at his residence in De
troit, on Sunday last, at the ripe
old age of 70 years.
The Cincinnati Enquirer addresses
the Democratic majority in the
following sensible and cogent words:
"If you are not aualified to pro
ceed with the legislation which has
been ordered by the voters of the
United States by an overwhelming
majority, a mistake has been made
in electing you. You have got in
to congress on false pretenses. If
you are not prepared to proceed on
the Chicago platform, and so en
thusiatically ratified at the election,
you will not be prepared on the first
Monday in December, 1803 nearly
a year hence, and thirteen months
after your election, and within six
or seven months of an other con
gressional campaign."
The Argus has always held that a
question of morals is involved in
the taxing of one roan to help the
private business of another. The
St. Louis Post-Dispatch takes a like
view and in advocating a change
from our present deceptive system
of indirect taxation on consumption
to direct system of income tax it
says:
"It is a simple question of morals,
of right or wrong. Shall the poor
man be loneer victimized by a
sneak-thief system of indirect taxa
tion, or shall the rich man be com
pelled to do his part in the social
economy? It is the question be
tween private interest and public
trood. Both ways are open. One
or the other must be chosen, for
there is no other alternative.
That brainy independent paper,
the Boston Herald, punctures the
claim that a high tariff causes lower
prices in the following words:
"There never was a high tariff
that did not bring over-production.
It has been one of the protectionist
arguments that protection lowered
prices. Protection lowers prices by
glutting markets, when it lowers
them at all. We do not say that
lowered prices may not follow pro
tection from other causes, but when
lowered prices are traced to the
effect of protection they come from
this cause. The foreign market
was shut out under McKinley pro
tection, ior reciprocity is aireaay
demonstrated to be a sham in this
connection. Lessened production,
with these facts borne in mind,
may not be a misfortune to the pub
lic, or even to the producer him
self." Those Terrible Canadian Gunboats.
One of those Canadian gunboats
that have so troubled the mind of
Gen. Miles is at St. Johns, N. B.,
having been sent thither for fishery
protection service. She is described
as a tiny craft, 125 feet in length,
carrying a six pound gun and hav
ing a crew of seventeen men. She
is not a match for an ordinary
Yankee tu gboat. The western cities
have nothing to fear from such
craft. In every one of the cities on
our side of the great lakes there are
vessels so large, swift and powerful
that they only need armament to
become effective cruisers. Enough
of these vessels are built on the
lines of Ocean Steamers to make up
a squadron formidable on the high
seas. Our preponderance on the
great lakes in time of peace is over
whelming, and in time of war,
would, with the armament of our
steamers, become even more pro
nounced. As for the Welland
Canal, one swift overwhelming
rush would give us possession of it
and stop that passage of British gun
boats from the gulf.. Canada is
scacely defendable against the
United States. As Gen. Sherman
said years ago, "Canada is within
our lines." We do not want to
conquer Canada, but if we did, we
could do it. Boston Transcript.

Improvements 1892.
f The year 1892 has seen many Improve
ments in Alpena. In new manufactures
the Excelsior Works was built, and this
season has manufactured 700 tons of ex
colsior. It has a capacity for making five
tons per day. That place of business has
brought Into value poplar wood and
other kinds of timber, that previously
were of no value. Another addition to
the manufacturing Industries Is the now
stave mill, built last fall, but not yet
operated. It has made a market for the
large amount of elm timber in the county.
Tho post year has been a notable one
in church matters. The now brick
church ' of the Norwegians, on Dunbar
street, was completed and dedicated.
The Congregational society rebuilt, en
larged, beautified and bricked their
church, at a cost of $13,000, and it was
dedicated in December. The Baptist
society erected a fine brick church, at the
corner of Third and Lockwood streets,
which cost $23,000. It was dedicated
December 25th. The French Catholio
society built the foundation for a large
church, at corner of Lockwood and Ninth
streets. The total value of the church
improvements is about $45,000.
r An elegant bath house was erected on
First street, between Water and River
stroets, by tho Alpona Sulphur 8prirjg
Co., at a cost, including site and sinking
well, of $30,000.
The large brick hall of the German Aid
society, on Dock street, was completed,
and opened to the public on the 22d of
February last.

A handsome and commodious brick
building was built by the Board of Super,
visors for a county poor house.
In addition a large number of private
residences havo been built, some very
elegant.
The city has expended over five thous
and dollars in buildlog new sidewalks,
and has laid out a large amount In mak.
lng new drains.

fires, and business has been good. One
lumber mill, that of E. K. Potter & Sons,
went out of commission.
As regards this city, 1893 has been a
good and prosperous one.

Everv racre of the January number of
the Review of Reviews shows evidence of
a freshness and a touch with tho very
latest movemeuts of the day, such as no
other issue of any other magazine in the
world ever exhibitod. The most con
spicuous article is upon "Presldont Diaz
and the Mexico of To-day." It bears
every mark of having been written, as the
publishers of the Review claim it actually
was since tho fourth Inauguration of Diaz
on the first day of December. The fron.
tleploce is a fine portrait group of General
Diaz and his full Cabinet, who gave a
special sitting at the request of the Re.
view of Reviews as late as December 9 in
the City of Mexico. That this, with a
great numbor of other Mexican portraits
and pictures that aocompany the article,
should be actually published In a month,

which will be on salo in Mexico
