The Soldiers' Home Investigating; Committee Make a Report. M Isrelhtiieuii .Nrto from Lansing.' L,si'. o. March 1, Tho report of the committee appointed to investigate tho irregularities of the sol dier' homo has been finally submitted to tho house. It is voluminous und calculat ed toavert any con-id. -rat ion of then-regularities. No mention is made of Col. Wells or Maj. Long, and the only una censured in it is tho chief nurse. Tho report says: We recommend that in tho ( of Edwin Down the board of management take im mediate steps to have justice dono by any action that they may feel right in taking. Py tho evidence, as it appears upon the report presented herewith, they leave tho testimony referring to any other irregu larities in the hands of the board of man agement ami invito theircloso and careful attention thereto, in the mutter of censure attaching to any person connected with the home your committee do not deem it their duty to go farther than to submit tho evidence for the consideration of the legis lature and tho board of managers of tho homo." Numerous minor recommenda tions aro made as to buildings, hospitals and routine management. Tho entire committee signs tho report, and tho houso adopted it unanimously. One of tho most animated debates of j the session occurred in tho senate tho oth I er afternoon o er a joint resolution "that our senators ami representatives in cou ; gross bo requested to use their influence i and vote for such legislation as will give 'to the state of Michigan, in trust for tho university of Michigan, all tho govern ment lands subject to entry within thu state, together with such other lands . within tho state as may hereafter be aub ject to entry or shall revert to tho general government by reason of forfeiture." In this Senator Seymour moved as on amendment tho proviso that all of tho lauds described situate I in t he upper pen insula of Michigan sh ill bo given in trust for such schools or institutions in tho up per peninsula as the legislaturo may di rect. In spito of all the eloquence and ar guments in favor of the amendment, it wus voted down and the ivsolut.on as in troduced was ugreed to. In order to facilitate matters tho rail road committees of the two houses have arranged for a joint meeting for tho pur pose, of cou-ideriiig all the railroad I. ills introduced. In this wav tho committees hope by consideration or substitution to largely reduce, tho number of bills and still cover all tho objects aimed at. The senate committee on tie state houso of correction and bran, h of tho state pris on in tho uppt-r peninsula, reports that under the act of 1 .", a site had been pur chased two and one half miles east of tho business center of Marquette, in a health ful location, convenient tor drainage and i easily supplied with pure water. 1 lie plans for the building were made l.y Wm. Scott ot Detroit, and are modeled largely after tho Ionia house of correction. Work wits commenced in Julv last. The engine house is nearly completed. The dining room and hospital building is nearly read y for slat ing and the foundation walls of the admin istration building and we-t cell wing are nearly finished. T he buildings will bo completed within one year from date. The appropriation asked for tho building und furnishing is Jmi..J. The bill to prohibit tho sale of intoxicat ing liquors within a milo of the soldiers' homo at Grand Rapids, brought out a pretty sharp discussion participated in namely by Senators Palmer. J. W. Pab eock. Edwards and Hubbell, though Sena tors Deyo. Mavo. W. T. Pabeock and Sharp each find a few remarks to make. To the g-neral purpo-o of tho bill thero was little dissent, though there wa- some disagree ment as to details. It was amended so as to insert "knowingly and wilfully" in the clauses prohibiting sale or gilt, and in this shape passed the onimitteo of tho whole ami subsequently passed on tho order of third reading by vote of to o. The senate has confirmed tho nomina tion of Col. Heath to be commissioner of labor statistics. The house has killed the bill providing that no one can be appointed or elected .judge of probate unles he bo a practicing uttorney. Among tho petitions sent to the house is a verv carefully drawn memorial from F. A. Paker ot Detroit. At tho time Mr. linker sent to the legislature his paper on the Paker conspiracy law, he promi-ed nt some future time to"conider some of the relations between employer and employe. Tho memorial presented to day consisted chiefly of a statement ol existing laws and decisions Upon tho sub ec t of damnges to employes through accidents or negligence. Mr. Paker holds that juries ought to to allowed to award damages in excess of actual damages in cases of injury through the negligence of corporations" Ho dis-C'ls-es the doctrine that a servant cannot recover for damages cau-ed by the neglect of a fellow servunt. He refers to tho em plovers' liability act adopted in England in psi. and states that he has a bill adapt ing that act to this ktate. Tho bill was sent to a nieml er from takland, with tho memorial, and has been introduced. One of tho bills to bo considered by tho houso is one amending tho laws in refer ence tt 'vomiensat ion for causing death by wrongful act, neglect or default." Tho amendment incorporates into tho section tho word-!, including such general dam ages for injuries to tho feelings und affec tions and for loss of society as the jury under all facts and circumstances of tho case may deem iust and reasonable, and in cases of wilful act ami gross negligence exemylury damages may bo awarded as in both cases." A bill introduced by Representatire Herrlngton is intended to extend and regulate tho liability of employers to make cotnpesation for personal injuries au tie red by workmed in their employ, Representative Dawson is of the opinion that whatever law for the regulation or prohibition of the liquor traffic may be passed, it should be enforced, and he has introduced a bill providing for the ap pointment by the governor of a state marshall whoso duty it shall be to enforce the law. Tho marshall is given power to appoint a deputy in every county, and whenever a complaint is made of a viola tion of the law, the marshall or his depu ties shall proceed Hgainst such person and shall shall have the same powers in execut ing the laws as the sheriff may have. A number of important state boards are to be thoroughly investigated. Senator lialtcock introduced a bill a few days 6ince abolishing the state board of health. He has procured figures and statistics show ing that the institution costs something like ibVooo per year, and ho has informa tion that the expense rea- hes to,(0 an nually. A secretary receives f j,rnd per year, and ten clerk- "aro employed at sala ries ranging from Itioo to fl.ooo annually. The purpoe of tho bill is to investigate whether the state is getting full value for this largo outlay, Senator Palcoek is not radical for abolishing the board if it can show that it serves a valuable puroso, which is in some doubt. Ho says it was originally intended that tho board should not cost over .,too per year. The state board of auditors among others will come in for a share of atten tion, a bill having been introduced for the reorganization of that lody. The author of the bill says that at present they have sweeping powers, and his design is to add the governor as a memler of the board. It is now composed of the treasurer, secre tary of state and commissioner of tho state land otlice. Other bills have been in troduced for a reorganization of the state toard of agriculture and for the reorgani zation of the management of the stale prison board. A bill is before tho house prohibiting railroads from issuing passes to officials, government, state, county or judicial. All tho members of tho legislature, stato official-, sergeant at arms, and janitors are supplied with passes, and it would be U god send to t he railroads if such a luw could be enacted. It is not very probable however, that the meml ers will "vote theso passes out of their own pockets. The penalty for violation of tholaw is a tine of not less than f ioo, or more than fooo, and the forfeiture of tho otlice by the person uci epting tho pass. Almost every other pliase of the liquor question is represented by some measure. Ttie committer on the liquor trullio have seen to it that measures are in hand to reach the main questions that may arise, either with or without tho adoption of the prohibition amendment, and individu al members have introduced many bills. Prohibition, high license and local option are all provided for in measures presented and will be a fruitful subject of discussion after the fate of the amendment is decided. Another bill is before the house which has a direct bearing on the liquor traffic. It provides that where a business which has been legalized is subsequently made unlaw ful, compensation shall be made to those engaged in such business fur damages that may bo caused by its destruction. This bill, though general in its terms, and in somo contingencies applicable to other classes of business, w ill he seen to have its most prominent application to the brewers in caso prohibition is adopted in tho con stitution or by legislation. PROHIBITION' CANDIDATES. Prohibitionists Nominate a Ticket Their Own, and Resolve to Continue the Party Organization. of Tho riitform. The statu prohibition amvention met In Luck's opera houso in j.ansing February "4. Albert Dodge of Ingham was made temporary chairman, and Caleb S. Pitkin of Way lie secretary. The customary committers were appointed and a perma nent organisation edected by tho election of D. P. Sageudorph us permanent chair man. At f he close of Mr. Sugendorph s ad dress the Rev. E. li. Sutton, chairman of the finance committee, appealed tor funds to carry on the campaign. At least !. fiH was nee. leil imnieilihtely. His appeals for subscriptions were not very heartily met, about an hour's persistent work bringing only about J in pledges and cash. The eommit.tee on resolutions adopted the following: toV', First and foremost and abovo all things else, it is the duty of our party, at this hour, to give u united and aggres sive support to the amendment. Wiikkkas, State prohibition cannot bo completely effective without national pro hibition; therefore, i'r.y!i'J. That the object of tho prohibi tion pirty cannot be fully accomplished until its avowed irir.cip'es shall he fully estat)il-h!il as the controlling principles of our national government, and a prohibi tion con stitut ion.il amen line nt is incorpo rated into tho constitution of tho t'nited States; and further, that the prohibition party of the stato of Michigan pledges it telf to maintain its separate political' i ganization, and to support its nominees for otlice until its objects aro fully accom plished. J.rt'tiiet, That we wish to return sincero thanks to tho meml ers of tho legislature who voted to submit the prohibition con stitutional amendment to the deci-ion of the people of this state; und we earnestly hop tliat they, together with all good cit izens of our state, will work and vote for fcueh amendment. ..' f, That the prohibition party of Michigan finds amplw cause for thankful ness and hope in the rapidly rising tide of prohibition sentiment throughout tho country; in t lie largely increased vote of the party at the late elections in the sev ral state-, particularly in our own; and in the concessions of our political opponents in the submission of prohibition amend ments to state constitutions and in various other ways. Htnohf l. That because of the joy which it rives us to be permitted to strike a deadly blow, in our own beloved state, at the head of that "gigantic crime of crimes," the liquor traffic, through tho sacred principle of prohibition, we stop not to Inquire into the political motives of those who have presented us with the opportunity, but hero and now solemnly pledge ourselves and thoe w horn we rep resent, that if tho pending prohibitory amendment be not adopted on the 4th of April next, it shall not U from any want of fidelity or diligence on our part. Jt'fMxttii, That we expre-s our gratifica tion Ht the prompt and efficient work of the W. C. T. IT. and ail other temperanco organizations in behalf of the amendment. We also express our grateful appreciation to our friends in other states, who have already so generously ottered material aid in securing victory in April next. In considering the second plank of tho jlatforui. Judge Cheever of Ami Arbor alluded to .Judge Marstou's papers on tho subje 't and sai i that if the w riter had taken the ruht ground, and ho undoubted ly had in many respects, the work of the prohibition party would not bo finished in a hundred years. After tho amendment was adopted and prohibitory legislation en ai ted we should still need tho prohibi tion party to establish a state constabu lary and to see that the laws were enforc ed. Individual etfort could not enforce such laws against the bad elements that sustain and surround the traffic. When tho fourth plank of the platform was read a warm discussion arose on an amendment ottered to strike out tho word "wrung" in the clause speaking of the concessions of political opponents. The Rev. John Russell bitterly assailed the old farties, argued that the concessions had en wrung from them, and believed in telling them so. Mr. Woodman of Wayne made one of his humorous and telling speeches in favor of striking out, and sev eral others spoke to the same purpose. The amendment was almost unanimously adopted, and the phrase "concessions wrung from our political opponents," be came "concessions of our political oppo nents." The other resolutions were adopt ted seriatim, and without debate. A suplementary resolution was adopt ed inviting the next national prohibition convention to meet at Detroit, and prom ising to bear all the local expenses of the same. Only one person was mentioned for each of the places on the ticket, and the nomi nations were made by acclamation and unanimously as follows: Justice of the Supreme Conrt for Eight Years Noah W. Cheever of Ann Arbor. Justice for Ten Years-Lemuel Clute of Ionia. Regents of the University David Tres ton of Detroit, A. P. Cheney of tSparto, Kent county. Three cheers were given for the ticket and three with a tiger for the amendment and the convention adjourned. The prospects of tho amendment so noon to be admitted to the people were thorough ly discussed and the general feeling as ex- tressed by the delegates was exceedingly opeful. JUiM Kobbcrv. A dirlng robbery occurred at Iron Moun tain the other day shortly after noon, by which City Treasurer A. E. Kendley was robbed of $.1,000 of city funds. KendJey is a merchant and kept his money In a safe in this store. Two strangers entered the t tore, made a few purchases, and to fill their orders Kendley was obliged to go in to the cellar. Returnfng in five minutes be discovered that the safe had been rifled and the men had disapp ared. There It no clue. Kendley offers $ jOO reward. REPUIJL1CAN TICKET. James V. Campbell and Charles D.
