CALUMET PIONEER DIES AFTER BRIEF ILLNESS John fjeiieko, one of the old pioneers of the copper country, passed away at his home In Swed town at 2 o'clock this morning after an Illness of only five days. Mr. Geueko suffered u par alytic stroke last' week and his death today was ' due to' this malady. Mr. tjeuckc was born on Jan. 1, 1840, In Germany and at an early age came o America. When a young man he amo to the Michigan copper country nd worked in tho Delaware, Calumet and IJulhcy mines. Later he returned Calumet, he having been a resident of this city for the past 42 yours, lie survived by a ivldow and six chil dren, Henry of the Wieder Harness comoany. John. Teter. Anna and Mrs. Williams of Calumet anil Pen of De troit. " ''' . Mr. Geueko was a charter member of the Calumet and Hancock branches of the German Aid noddy. He is well known ln Calumet, and his demise is the cause of much regret. Xo funeral arrangements have been made as yet, but these will be an nounced tomorrow. Calumet republicans seem to be u unit In their expressions of good will towards tho candidacy of Chane S. (s born of the Soo for the republican nomination for governor, which was announced on Saturday. A.ejresenta- tlve of Tho Xews called on many of the leading republicans of Calumet to day and everywhere found a warm welcome for the Osborn candidacy, and expressions of pleasure ln tho definite announcement which has been made. In view of the completeness of the local endorsement, it is hard to see where any other candidate will get many local votes. I The fact that Osborn Is an upper pe ninsula mun, with a keen perception of the needs of this section as well as of tho state at largo, eeoms to be tho chief argument ln his favor. The Soo mans wonderful personality and broad acquaintance with tho Interests of the citizens of the state are generally rec ognized here and the best of feeling pr vails. One of the most enthusiastic en dorsements of the Osborn candidacy is as follows: It Is remarkably fortunate for the republican party of Michigan that Mr. Osborn has consented to enter the race. Xot In a decade has a man of the Osborn type and caliber offered himself for the office." Another Osborn supporter responded to the general query by saying: I am extremely gratified to learn that Mr. Osborn has consented to en ter the field, and I feel that the strong- est endorsement that can be grven him Is well deserved. He looks like a win ner." The opinion prevails that Osborn has an excellent chance to win. One of the party leaders In Calumet stated today that he has a very strong backlnir in the lower peninsula, and that with the support generally conceded o him ln upper Michigan, should win easily.

Charles Stelzle of New York, the Presbyterian general assembly's representative ln the work of "the church and labor," who talked at the Calumet theater vesterdav afternoon. said In an address before the Presby terian synod of Michigan in Cadillac last week on "The Social Unrest." that the church Is losing ground because of the failure to exhibit to the laboring man that spirit of brotherhood which is essential to saving souls for Christ. "Hell .Ore cannot be preached suc cessfully tftday," he said. "No hell of the future has so many terrors for the worklngman of today as the hell he Is In here on earth. Christian citizenship and an activity of Christians that equals the activity of socialists would correct the social unrest of this coun try." SOCIETY STILL FLOURISHES. False Report Circulated That Finnish Liberty Society Would End. A report has been circulated to the ffeet that the Finnish Literarv socie ty of Calumet, which owns the Fin nish nail on Kighth street, was about to die a natural death. This report was denied this morning, it being stat ed that the society is in Just as flour ishing condition now ns at any time In Its history. It was organized some years ago for the distribution of Fin nish literature among the Finns of the copper country, who became affiliated with the society eithe r as life or yearly members. Most of this literature Is on matters historical and all of it Is print ed In the Finnish language. The ob ject is to enlighten the local Finns on Finnish history and other matters ior- tntnlng to the government of their na tive land. The society has not n laree inctn heirship, but there are several life members, end the Income from these alone would be sufficient to keep up and maintain the society. Its expenses are not largo, while its revenue meets all current expenses. Mrs. Mary Ann Angove of Cm. im.o sustained a broken nrm by falling on trie sidewalk near her home yesterday.
