fPfl ' A) litlfl gathering
of nominatiu candidates for important
ofllcen. Ufually there is friction in the
contest, leaving a soreness hard for
defeated candidates to overcome: but
there was nothing of this sort engen
dered and the best of feeling-prevailed.
Chairman of the city eommitU
Chas. M. Wise, called the convention
to order, stated its object and called
for the election of a secretary. Chas.
U. Cowdin wa on motion elected, and
Llmer h. Pales was niade chairman,
who appointed Fred Kinp; and W. A.
Wilder tellers.
An informal ballot was taken for
mayor, resulting: E. C. Watklns, 59,
K. H. Lapham,G, K. L. Wright, 5, C.
M. Wise, 4, W. Ii. Reed, 4, Wood
Jackson, 3, C. E. Hills, 2, scattering,
10. A formal ballot Wits ordered but
before it could be taken, the sentiment
manifested seemed to be fo unanimous
for Mr. Watkins that tlto ballot was
ieelared formal and his nomination by
ivcclaraation made. IIo was called to
the platform and made a short speech
of acceptance, vLtich he suid was cer
tainly a great s-urpriao to him and an
honor which any man should appre
ciate; it had eonie to him entirely un
sought and if elected, would endeavor
to give to the ollice his best efforts in
serving the public. Economy was the
watchword. Money was high priced
and hard to get and commodities) and
labor was cheap. He favored an
economical uo of the public monies.
His speech was loudly applauded.
The informal ballot for clerk result
ed: Chas. H. Cowdin, li"), Frank Van
l'elt, 25, scattering, T. It was declared
formal and Mr. .Cowdin made the
unanimous choice of the convention.
The nomination for the office of treas
urer was given to Will Day by acclama
tion, as was also that of school
Inspector to Robert McLaughlin.
After the election of C. M. Wise
chairman of the city committee, the
following resolution wa introduced by
Alderman M. E. Feck:
lbsohrd. That we recognize in Hon.
IIa7.cn S. Fingree, an enemy alike to
trusts, monopolies and political rings,
and an executive of more than ordinary
ability; and we urge our delegates to
the county convention to use all honor
able means to secure the election of
delegates to the state convention, who
will favor the nomination of Mayor
Fingree for governor of the state.
The moving of its adoption by Mr.
Feck brought out a littlo discussion
pro and con. Fred King, who stated
he was a strong Fingree man, objected
to the resolution as being untimely,
arguing that something might inter
vene before the state convention, to
change sentiment and considered it
unwise to place themselves on record.
D. V.. Wilson thought that Fingree
democrats, who were in the room,
should not bo allowed to vote on the
A. L. Spencer took the platform and
favored an expression, but that it be
done by a division of the house. After
a few remarks by I', li. Lapham. the
motion made by someone for a division
of the house was put and the sentiment
seemed to be so overwhelming' that
Chairman Pales, nuiid rounds of ap
plause, asked If the Fingree men
wanted the earth.
A motion to adjourn then carried
and the convention separated to go
into w ard caucus.

Having heard that a report had gain
ed curreucy that a misconstruction had
been put upon a few words in Maj. E.
C. Watkins' speech made in accepting
the nomination for inayor. relating to
wages and that it was being used
against him by people who are always
ready to misinterpret for a purpose, a
Hanner reporter called at his office in
the fielding Cigar factory and propoun
ded the following question: In your
remarks when nominated for mayor
you referred to money being expensive
aud commodities and labor leing cheap.
Some have interpeted this to mean that
if elected you would favor cutting down
tin- pay of laborers employed by the
'Not at all! I said, what all know,
that money is high priced and hard to
get, wliiie commodities ami l.i'Kr are
heap, and favored an economical use
of the public moneys. 1 had in luiiot
the large number of men in our city
who are entirely dependent on their
own labor, who pay taxes, many upon
houses and lots, but partly paid for and
who are trying to make monthly or
early payments on them. The monei
for taxes, payments, and the support of
amily must all be earned by hard
alor. To sucn hiirh taxes are a grev-
ions burden and any useless waste of
monev thus procured, a crime.
I had no thought or reference, to the
omparatively few men who are em-
iloved by the city. Heaven knows
laborers ret little enough."

WillUm Trowbridge Olvrn The Full l.liull
of The Imvt,
When Win. Trowbridgo of lidding
w&s brought into court for sentence,
he having pleaded guilty to the horri
ble crime, ol incest with his daughter,
the court room was crowded. When
Judgy Davis ordered the man tteforo
the bar and asked him what he had to
say before sentence was passed, the
only reply he made was that he would
like to serve time at tho Ionia prison.
Hi s request, however, was not granted,
and he will spend tho next 15 years in
Juckfcon prison.
Ftfore passing-sentence Judge Davis
said the crime, was the most heniou
that man could commit. He gave
Trowbridgo a severe scoring and said
ho was not only a disgrace to the com
munity but to any family, and he was
onlyporry that the sentence could not
Ik3 longer, as tho law was to limited
for se loathsome a crime. He thereup
on tentenced the man to 15 years hard
labor in the state prison at Jackson,
the full limit of the law. Trowbridge
was then taken back to jail aDd he did
not have a word to say. Ionia Sentinel.

Claude IVifer who operated a rip
saw at the Crescent factory, met with
a serious accident this morning. He
ran his left hand against the saw but
can hardly tell how it was done, the
first he realized what had happened he
saw the severed thumb lying on the
machine table end and jerked hi. hand
away. The first linger was found to be
nearly severed also, and it is doubtful
whether it can Ih saved. It is consider"

A Talk on Wall Paper !
The tflail Spring time is at hand, and with it come that de
lightful work of cleaning house; then comes papering and painting,
it is absolutely necessary and you must face the inevitable. Hefore
you do either call at our store for we wish to see you about Wall
Taper, Faint, etc. Ymi may not know it. but it is fact neverthe
less that Holmes & Council carries a larger stock ol Wall Paper
than any other concern in Ionia or Montcalm counties. This ii no
idle boast but facts. Wc have constantly on hand more than
twenty thousand rolls of Wall Paper. Just think of it, enough
Wall Paper when stretched out to reach more than twenty miles.
We have just completed our Sample Hooks and find we have a lot
of remnants which we will sell at 5c a double roll, enough to paper
a small room. Do not buy of agents with samples as they have
no use for extra paper left over, but will waste or destroy it. Wk
have the nicest line of cheap papers, as well as the best, from 5c,
ioc to $1.00 a roll, from the leading manufacturers.' Remember
this, if you buy one single roll of Wall Paper this spring without
getting our prices first you will miss it.
