Attorneys O'lirion ami Le-C.en-dre, acting as attorneys fonMrs. Itrink brought this suit to recover damages from the rafiroad company for th death of her husband something over a a year ago. The man whs a brakeman In the employ of the defendant com pany und lost his lift? on the tracks of the company in this vllUge nctir the bridge. Vlhen the case was about to be call ed, for f lat yesterday afternoon. At torney Joha (i. Stone of the firm of Hall & Stone and Superintendent Fales of the Copper Range appeared and announced that they would like to have the court continue the ease until this morning, as they would like to talk with the attorneys for the plain tiff with the obj.vt of reaching a set tlement without a trial. The reques was granted and the Interested par ties adjourned to the law offices o Ball & Stone where, after an hour's conference, they came to a settlement The terms were not public but It is rumored that the woman received a substantial mum from the railroad company.

Donahue-Liebert Cast On. The last case on the civil docket to be tried by Jury was started this morning. It Is a case In assumpsit In which J. C. Donahue. th. Hancock decorator, Is suing H. T. Llebert, the architect of that city, to recover the um of $210. which he claims is due him because he Indorsed a note in that amount for the architect and which he alleges the architect refused to pay nt the time It fell due and that he, Donahue, was forced to pay the sum. The Jury was drawn this morn ing, the box being filled with some dif ficulty, n each dde excused several of the Jurors by the u.o of the prc emptory challenge. - In this action the plaintiff Is being represented by Attorneys Rurrltt & tlurrltt and the defendant, Ll.bert. has as his counsel the firm of Han chette & Lawton, Attorney Lnwtnn. conducting the case. The examination of the witnesses in the case was pro ceding slowly and it is doubtful if the case will be concluded today as every Inch of the way is being stubbornly contested. Another Case Taken From Jury. At about half past three yesterday afternoon the case of John Watklns of Calumet against Eugene I Hurdick of Chassell was taken from the Jury and a verdict found for the defendant under tho court's Instructions upon the motion of Attorney V. A. Iiurrltt. who, In his motion set up that there was no specific agreement between the parties os to what kind of timber should or should should not be re moved from the land of the plaintiff, who brought suit to recover JS0.74, which he says he overpaid to the de fendant for hauling this timber. The contention of the plaintiff was that he had paid Ilurdick for hauling out the timber and afterwards discov ered that much of the timber hauled out was not of commercial valuo and that he should be refunded an amount In 'proportion to the unusable timber thus taken out. The motion of Attor ney Hurritt win strenuously opposed by Attorneys O'lirlen and LeGendre acting for the plaintiff, on the ground that no TH'eifie agree ment need enter ed Into, as the man hired to haul the timber out was supposed to bo an ex perienced timbernian and should have known what tint to have hauled. The land from width this timber was haul ed Is the same as Mr. tklns recent ly presented to the Michigan Audubon Society for a bird preserve. MERCY! NO HOPE OF EARLY RELIEF WEATHER MAN PREDICTS NEW HEAT RECORD FOR COPPER COUNTRY WILL BE HUNG OUT SOME TIME TODAY. Observer Cowdtick of the l S. weather station at nought, n is am bitious. Copper country people have suspected this for some time, and to day the secret Is out. Way back In 1901 one of his predecessors hung out a heat record which had not been up preached before nor since. 103 degrees in the shade. Now tho ambitious gent from Tampa, Florida, thinks he can co that record one better. One week ago, i3 degree s was scored, n new rec ord for the present summer. Hut Mr. Cowdiiek i hot jit satlstle-d. At noon Md.iy he ccaxcd the mercury up to S9 degrees and at 1 o'clock he was trying to convince his fv remaining friends that 93 degrees was not very warm. Now he proposes to beat that old rec ord. 103. in one dash, this afternoon. No relief is offered to those who have sweltered In the heat today. A similar condition prevails all ov r the northwest and Observer Cowdricknloos not expect the heat to diminish before tomorrow at the earliest. He thinks it entirely likely that the late after noon will be warmer than it has boon so far today. R. T. GOODfll ASPIRES TO CHAMPIONSHIP GOLF HONORS AN INNOCENT VICTIM OF BLACK HAND.

One- of the 'most startling and pathetic incidents among the many nefarious acts e.f the; P.lack Hand society was the abduction .f little 3-year-e.ld Michael Scimeca from his home at No. 2 Prince stre-et. The; father is a physk-lan and both Dr. jte inieca .and his w ife are well known throughout the- Italian distrie ts. The kidnapping e.f little Mic hael took place in broad daylight while he was playing with some friends on the third I'.oor e.f his home It folle.wcd a series of threatening p.lack Hand letters re ceived by Dr. Scimeca during the last three years. Ibdh the father and mo ther are preestrateel with grief. The missing child was playing in the hallway In front e.f the Scimeca npart ments. directly above? Dr. Sclmeca's ofllce, with Vito P.agano, six years e.ld. and Marie Ca.aro, three years old, when a man approached little1 Michael and asked the child if he cared to ac company him to a store nnd get eine- canelv. The child embraced the- oppor tunity eagerly, and. taking Michael by the hand, the stranger led him down the stairway, past the- door leading to I Dr. Scime-ia's e.flice, where he was at tending to some patients, and emt into Prince street. The Hagano boy fol lowed them tee the street and saw them disappear northward in Elizabeth treet. After waiting several minutes for the re turn of Michael the; p.agano boy en- tere-d the eiftice of Dr. Scime-ca and informed him of the occurn-i.ee. Dr. Scimeca hastened bareheaMcd into the street and ran to Elizabeth street, lie sounded the warning, and within a few minute s a scer of persons we re on the trail. Returning to his ofhVe Dr. Scimeca tclephe.ncd to police head eiuarters and Policeman Carao and Coittano, of the Hlack Hand squad, soon were engaged In the chase. The locality was thorenighly se-arth-ed for a radius ef several bletcks, but not a person was fe.und who could throw any light uion the nutvements of the man and child. Finding their efforts fruitless Policeman Carao and Costano reported to hoaelquarters and a descriptle.n of the Scime-ca child se-nt broadcast. The child wore a tan Dus ter Drown suit nnd Is pretty. Dr. Scimeca states that In his judg ment the child was stolen for ransom In revenge for his refusal to pay at te ntb.n to black hand letters which he le-ie-iveil perle-dically. Semie three ye ars .-f e. he said, hr received thre at-ii-.lug letters, which he avo to Lieu tenant Jose; h petreeslnet, who was as-ras.-inated in Italy In March, VMrj. Af ter that event the le tte rs ceased, and he be lievcd his anvonymous ce.rrcspon eleots had foi gotten him, when, e.n Apr. 3, the threatening demands were re newed. Dr. Scimeca Is convinced he will hear from his son's nbductor within the next f w d lys, on the theory that the boy was stolen for ransom. Mean while the police are searching the low er cast tide for the child, In which t.-'sk they are being assisted by hun dreds of Dr. Sclmeca's friends. $4,000 A NIGHT FOR MELQA.
