Washinc.Ton, July 27. M. Cambon, the French ambassador at Washing ton, in the name of the Spanish government, has presented to President McKin ley a proposition for peace. Just what the proposition is has not been made public. Washinc.Ton, July 27. The initiative of the overtures for peace has had the effect of suspending 'in a large measure for the time being the interest in the military and naval situation. It is known through the admission of the members of the administration that the present peace phase would remain until after another cabinet meeting on Friday. Washinc.Ton, July 27. Nothing has been heard today at the war depart ment of the Miles expedition which has landed on Porto Rican soil, but Capt. Higginson, the senior officer of the naval convoy, forwarded a brief cablegram tliat gave keen delight to the navy department because of the praise it accorded "Dick" Wainwright, the commander of the little Gloucester. Wainwrigh tenioys the solitary distinction of being the only officer of Sampson's fleet commended by his superior officer twice since the war began. Washinc.Ton. Tulv 2S It is reiorted that the Spanish troops in I'orto Rico are being withdrawn from the outlying towns and concentrated in San Juan. The defences of the capital are also Detroit JockNAL, Julv 27.--I.eroy Ithaca, a private in Co. II , First Missouri quest, been transferred to Roosevelt's Rough Riders. BICYCLES get dirty, the chains squeak, the wheels wobble, the tires don't hold wind, the bearings get loose and the best way to fix 'em is to have E. H. WESTON give your noble steed a thorough cleaning, repairing and re-enameling ami DON'T FORGET that when the faucet at your kitch en sink leaks, or you want a bath room fitted up, or your hydrant or cistern pump need repairs, he can fix them too. The Same Story. Only Worse This Time Is the Report of the Ball tame at itnaca Last weeK i nursaay. The business men of Alma having in mind their defeat at the hands of the Ithaca business men on tho Alma liamoud a few weeks ago, left for Ithaca on Thursday of last week re solved to play ball or die. They did not do either. That is they thought they would play ball, but the Ithaca players soon convinced them they were not in it at any stage of the game. Our team had been strengthened somewhat since tho previous game but their team had been strengthened more. However our boys are loud in their praises of tho treatment accorded them outside of the game of ball. They naturally feel some what blue over tho way they wore ever lastingly walloppcd, but time will heal those wounds and nothing but pleasant memories of the day will linger in their minds. Below is the score by innings: l :t 4 Itha -a Alma 0 lo o o Is ; Passed BeyonJ. Ellie M. Mayes, wife of John E. Mayes, died at their home in this place, on Sunday ?ast of consumption, aged 22 years. The funeral was held on Tues day from tho Adventist church, Rev. Ostrander of Saginaw preaching the sermon, and the remains were laid at rest in Riverside cemetery. The de ceased was an exemplary christian young lady and of the Adventist faith. Sho leaves a husband to mourn tho loss of a true and loving companion. Teachers for Alma College.
