Consent Given to Change of Date For
Democratic District Meeting.
The tempest that has been raging
for two weeks in the thirteenth dis
trict democracy's teapot, and that at
cne time bid fair- to go so far as to
disturb the harmonious relations be
tween the Democrat and the Inde
pendent, appears to be subsiding. It
seems to be dying for want of wind.
It will be remembered that Chairman
Kruycr, at the request of a South
Bend democratic club and in the ex
ercise, as he supposed, of his ancient
rights in the premises, set the date
for the district convention on Jan. 8
and that subsequently the state com
mitte; directed that all such conven
tions sh' ii Id be held Jan. 2.
It seems the South Bend organiza
tion had planned for big doings on
the 8th and desired the convention to
assemble then and there as an adjunct
to their entertainment. Contracts
were made and speakers engaged for
that date and Mr. Kruyer did not
feel that it would be courteous to make
a change without the consent of the
club. He asked for such consent and
while the club was considering the
matter the Independent raised its un
friendly voice and brayed loud and
long at Mr. Kruyer. The Democrat
rebuked its asinine cotemporary and
the tempest was on.
In due season a meeting of the St.
Joseph county democracy was held and
Mr. Kruyer was notified that a change
making the date conform t the state
call would be perfectly agreeable.
They decided to make make certain
changes in their program ar.d ded
icated their new quarters yesterday
evening with a smoker instead of Jan,
8th with the more elaborate function
that was at first contemplated. The
storm is all off.
The Date is Changed.
P. J. Kruver, democratic chairman
for the thirteenth district, has amend
ed his call for the district meeting
making the date Jan. 2 instead of
Jan. 8. The meeting will beheld at
South Bend and Mr. ' Kruyer 's suc
cessor will be elected.
William J. Hand.
William J. Hand, of Union town
ship, whose death occurred Dec. 9,
was one of the earliest settlers and
oldest residents of Marshall county, to
which he came in 1842 from Ononda
ga county, ew York, where he was
born Oct. 25, 1813. He lived naarly
sixty years in one neighborhood and
was long a man of prominence and in
fluence. Unlike most of his pioneer
neighbors he possessed a good educa
tion and his judgment in matters of
interest to them was often sought and
freely given. He presided at the first
republican convention held in Mar
shall county and never wavered in his
adherence to the principles of
that party. He died at the home
of his son, Wm. E. Hand, at Culver,
passing away unexpectedly while ap
parently sleeping in the afternoon,
and was buried at Maple Grove" ceme
tery, funeral services being held at
the Argos M. E. church.
Abusing the Mail Boxes.
Neither the owners of rural mail
boxes nor the country postal carriers
have any friendly feeling toward mer
chants who fill the boxes with all
kinds of dodgers and posters for ad
vertising purposes. The department
at Washington has been informed of
the abuse and will probably ask con
gress to make it a punishable offense
to deposit other than legitimate mail
matter in any postal box. Meanwhile
instructions have been sent out direct
ing the carriers to take out and throw
away all improper matter found in
the boxes,' thus increasing the burden
of labor imposed on these employes
and littering the farmers door yards
withpaper trash. Advertising circu
lars &ent out through the country and
distributed broadcast by men and
boys are seldom read and the' mer
chant who wastes money in that form
of publicity is away behind the times.
The same matter nicely displayed in a
respectable paper obtain all the privi
leges of the mail "and is . welcomed in
to the household and read and dis
cussed at the fireside. It brings busi
ness while circulars repeal trade.

McDonald's Graft Materially Reduced From
Former Years.
, The countv commissioners were in
session Monday to receive bids and
award contracts for county supplies
for the current vear. The bids for
printing and stationery were as fol
lows: Class 1, Class 2, Class 3.
D. McDonald
& Co., $133.915 $224.00
Levev Bros.
& Co., $611.96 141.15
John R. Jones, 716.17 163.22 199.55
Journal Print
ing Co., 842,20 223.10 352.80
Levey Bros. & Co., an Indianapolis
concern, received the contract for sup
plies of the first class and D. McDon
ald & Co., for class two and three.
John R. Jones, of the Argos Reflector,
did not include in his bid everything
that was required in the third class
and his bid was not considered. The
Journal Printing Co., of Indianapolis,
put in a very high bid under an under
standing that appears to exist among
the establishments at the capital in
such matters.
A perusal of the old records will
show that in the "good old days"
when the county business was less tnan
it is now, McDonald's hold on this
kind of business enabled him to get,
more than ten times as much for the
same supplies and no question was
raised as to his right to charge any
price he felt like asking.
Ball & Co., were the successful bid
ders for certain jail supplies, at $47.
