MARIE-Felix Wag ner, a well known upper peninsula cliaracter, who was tried and convict ed of smuggling Chinese acro the St. Mary's river In I'nited States fimrt here hist June, and who was only released from the Detroit TIuse of Correction last March, ha lccn arrested at Sault Ste. Marie, charged iv Mil linvinir been engaged in the smuggling of opium from Canada in to he ITnlited States. Wagner's pre liminary' hearing before IT. S. Court Commissioner Odwcll at the ,Soo was begun Friday, but after two witnesses had loen examined was adjourned un til June 12. Wngner'a arrest was the result of investigations conducted toy Collector of Customs C. J. ltyrns. of Marquette and Deputy Collectors MeCallunv and Taylor, of the Soo, which have been In progress for two weeks or more Ahout two weeks ago. the customs of ficers were tipped off that Wagnei was engaged 'n Finnggrnir opium from Canada 'by way of the St (Mary's river th officers of the department to nnd clues were unearthed, which took Montreal and Toronto. While Deputy McCallum was In Montreal lookln un. reported evidence. WAgner rather unexpectedly appeared at the Soo and was immediately arrested. In the arrest of Wagner, the cus toms officials believe they have un earthed one of the biggest smuggling schemes ever nttempted on the Can ndlan border. It Is stated that there la nnl' n t the Canadian Soo, waiting for transportation t this country some $.10,000 worth of opium, and the proposed traffic was probably only In Its Infancy when nipped in the bud. It Is said that the gang formerly op erated in the East, but that thing got so warm for them there that they had to move, and chose the Canadian Soo as the basis for their operations It is generally expected that other nr rests will follow that of Wagner.

A special team of colored enter tainers tomorrow WASHINGTON AND JONES. Laurlum town hall on Friday evening has been postponed. It probably will be a month now before the big session Is held, the dates favored being the time of the big mlrsummer carnival in I.aurluin. The postponement was decided upon because of the many conflicting attractions on Friday and Saturday of this week, and the fact that many of the members who are anxious to attend would be unable to be present. He-cause of the ceremonial session in connection with the big re union at Menominee, It was decided to make no effort to conduct the local session until after that date. A large number of applications have been re ceived and it is believed the event, when It finally Is conducted, will be a great success. Pythian Degree Team. Following the regular meeting of the Laurlum lodge held this week, the per sonnel of the degree team which Is to represent I-urlum will be the largest that has ever been entered In an up per peninsula degree team contest and In ludes the following: Pythagoras, Nlel Camobell.

Kerr, Uobet't Grcenshields, Pert Dray and Charles Hanson. It is likely that all of the members of the third rank degree team will as sist In conferring the dramatic first rank. As twelve of the members of the team were nslo members of the team which won first prize at the Es canaba convention last June, the mem bers of the Laurlum lodge feel confident that the team will make an exception ally fine showing. The delegation will leave Calumet Tuesday afternoon, June 20, via the Northwestern train, spe cial cars having been provided for the trip. It Is likely that the members of Hancock lodge will travel to the convention on the same train as the Laurlum lodge members. Modern Brotherhood.

A statement has been made toy A. M. Slay, great record .keeper, to the effect that when the new Modern Ma cabees temple was built nt Port Huron a sriaec was reserved at the time on the grounds for a suitable memor ial to MaJ. Poynton. The plan Is to have every Maccabee contribute one ernt. which would create a fund of $.'0,0000. In his will . iMnJ Poynton left $1,000 for this purpose which will be added to the fund.
