Sam Mathews Meets His Death While Swimming The Coroner' Jury lie turn A Yerdlrl of "I"uuu4 lrad-M'rre Km llues to the Accident Othcr Mew. Tamarack dam vai the wene of an other drowning accident yesterday after noon, the second this season. This time it was a young: man In the prime of life, Samuel .Mathews went to the dam early in the afternoon and there met a friend. a young boy, and the two undressed and prepared for a swim. They did not go in the water together, howerer, but warn in opposite directions, not seeing each other after being in the water a tthorttime. About 5 o'clock another party of young men went to the dam to swim and found the young boy tooling for his friend. His clothes were on the beach, but he bad not been seen for some time. They immediately came to the conclusion that he was drowned and commenced diving for him. After half an hour's work they succeeded in finding the body and getting it ashore. His right leg was cut and the uodr was black and blue in the vicinity of the wound and it is supposed that be struck something while diving or was taken with a cramp while in the water. The deceased would have been 20 years of age on the 9th of September, and leaves a father, mother, two broth ers and a sister to mourn his untimely taking off. The funeral will be held Wed nesday afternoon, services at the Calu met M. E. church. A jury to inquire into the deuth of the late Samuel Mathews was impaneled by Justice Fisher, but no witnenxes could be found and they simply returned u verdict of "Found dead." Mr. I'loy inquired at the dam when be went after the bodv, but could get no reliable information. Who was the constable? Surely it was his business to provide witnesses, or the inquest should have been adjourned. CoinpIalnlM. The Nkw has become the repository of three complaints, one of which is from the inhabitants of Calumet, w ho complain that, in the absence of any law to the contrary, the owners of cows allow them, and many of the cows have a bell attach ment, to meander about at night at their own sweet will, to the annoyance of their neighbors. This should certuinly be put a stop to and if there isat present no law to do it one should be arrived at, either by a statute or township rule. It seems scarcely possible, but on Sat urday last a resident of Keweenaw coun ty informed us that the I'.oys' brigade had made sad havoc of the 'glass in the windows of the old bouses on the mining location where they had camped. Our informant did not know which of the companies did the mischief, but from his remarks we presume it was the company which returned from camp last week. He also informed us that it was stated in Keweenaw couuty that the captain, or one of the officers, was present w hen the boys were firing at the windows, and also hinted that it was more than likely some of the boys would be prosecuted for their connection w ith the damage done. If there is no foundation for this report the sooner, in justice to the boys and the officers, it is contradicted the better, but, if on the other hand, it is true, the com pany should be assessed for the damage done, as those in command must have known of it and should at oDce have taken steps to stop it. It cert inly was a very poor recompense to the owner or agent of the location to hate the proper ty destroyed in return for giving the boys a camping ground. 'Twas certainly not fulfilling the good old doctrine of return ing good for evil, for it was just the re verse. A letter has been received from "Truth" dated August 1, complaining that in a recent addition to Lauriutn's population can be found a most accomplished liar and hypocrite and refers to Matthew 1:1-2 inclusive. The letter is too person al and obscene for publication, but if the writer will send particulars as to what this wolf in sheep's clothing-' in Baying and whose name be is using, presumably without authority, the Nmvh roar sue the propriety of again referring to this matter. Off For llie Tournament. The fire department and their friends left on this morning's train fur Sault Ste. Marie to attend the annual tournament of the l'pjer Peninsula departments. They expect to get back the latter part of next week, probably on Friday or Sat urday, but not earlier than Friday. The most interesting day of the tournament is Wednesday, when tbe principal races take place. The team, attind in white sweaters with tbe letter "C. & U, J. F. I," across ths front, formed at the Opera Ilout-e and marched to the depot. At Hough ton they were joined by the Lake Linden department and the Lake Linden baud. Tbe Hancock and Houghton departments also left with the others and altogether a mall army of fire fighters from the cop per country will take in the tournament. Tbe Houghton bind accompanied the de partment from that city. The members .f the running team who attend! from thU-place are Capt.

Tbe boys have practiced faithfully, and have good ma terial, and they go to tbe tournament with the best wishes of our people that they may take some of the events. Ar Thaukful for the Arraatulailou The South Shore train Saturday night was two hours late and the Mineral l'ange train did not wait to connect, but came to Red Jacket on time. It was in tended that those who came up on the late train for Calumet should wait until the early morning special from Marquette and come out on that. The Fifth llegi ment band and a number of passengers came up on tbe regular from Marquette, getting into Houghton shortly after 10 o'clock. They were just making arrange ments to sleep in Houghton, when Sunt. Shields beard of their dilema and got out a locomotive and car and brought the party home. They are all singing the praises of the popular superintendent today. The excursion train which brought back the A. O. V. W. people did not reach here until early this morning. Arretted for Vagrancy. John Johnson, 18 years of age, was up before Justice Curtis this forenoon charged with vagrancy. He was ar rested by Officer Murphy and pleaded guilty to the charge. The boy said be came up from Chicago and was in search of employment, lie was given ten days with Sheriff Dunn at Houghton and will be taken in this evening. Nelson Ie Rooscher was brought op before Justice Curtis this morning for being drunk and disorderly on Saturday night. He was arrested by Marshal Ward. His honor imposed a fine of f 3, which with the costs, amounted to 111.10. Ie Roocher is still in the village lockup awaiting the action of some of his friends whom he thinks will Day the fine fo him. F.u trlen lorn inn In. Roy fioldsworthy, of Hancock, has en tered the races for Saturday, and the chances are that Demo, the Dollar Day man, Dunstan and Crawford, of the Por tage Lake Cities, will also enter, Leary and Koblhaas have entered, and it is known that Ziebr will also be in the races. I be outside riders will add inter est to the sports, as their abilities, as compared to those of the local riders, are comparatively unknown. Most of those who were entered at the races on the 4th of July have also entered these events, and the novice race will take more than one beat if the entries keep on coming in as fast as they have. Hold or Nil vert M tilth? It is earnestly hoped that all those who may wish to vote intelligently on this question will make a point of attending tbe meeting which is to be held at Jus tice Curtis' office tonight at 8 o'clock. The association then proposed to be formed will be certainly non-partisan. There can be no doubt each side of tbe question is supported by good and conscientious people. The question for us to individ ually decide is, w hich is tbe beet for the country at lare, and it is to help the voter to decide this point for himself that it is proposed to organize tonight, so that each side may be fairly discussed in this neighborhood. F.irnrMlou lo Hie F.ntry. The Finnish tTnjerance societies of the copper country united in a monster ex cursion yesterday. A Hecial train over the Mineral Range railroad carried the Calumet people to Houghton w here all boarded Hennes' pleasure barge and went to the Entry where tbe day was spent. The Fifth Regiment band ac- companion the excursionists and gave a concert at the Entry. While there speeches were also made by the leading workers in the society.

Parties of picnicers are very frequent and many spend weeks in the different places at tbe point. Messrs. L. W.

Possibly thoro is no greater terror among tlio many art -with at son than a fog. Tbo helplessness of onr harbor boats and tbe clamor of bells and whis tles during a heavy fog in New York harbor give ono some idea of this night mare of tho orean, but when a fog closes down upon a vessel at sea tho most reck less captain procwxla cautiously and anxiously. The probability of collisions and wrecks duo to fogs has been accepted as a sort of unavoidable evil, which must become greater ns the number and speed of vessels increase. But tho inventive genius of man could not let such a con dition of affairs continue without at tempting to do away with it, and thero has Istii perfected a simple instrument, called the eophono, by which tbo direc tion from which a sound proctvtl may bo determined with absolute accuracy in fog or darkness. Tho simplest description of tho in strument is that it consists of two U-ll mouthed sound receivers, p r.:-r fi'd by a central diaphragm. Thew.uii'I icreivers are connected to the twot when pointed directly at a source of sound, the noise is (he s.imo i: r.;rlicar. When turned nway, the sound is heard in only ono ar. On shipyard the sound catching and dividing part of the instrument extends above the top of the charthouse. Tbo tubes am brought within the chart house, and the instrument may ls turned from below to int in any desired di rection. The enphono has now been perfected, there being many jtoints for which nu merous exsTiments, lusting over several years, havo been required, in order to determine the lu st form, especially with the sounding tubes and ear pif s. Va rious refinements, such as microphones and devices adding to tbe complication, but not improving tho use, have been eliminated. New Yok Herald.
