Mayor Francisco, in whoso hands tho matter was placed upon adjournment or tno former meetlncr, haa issued a call for another public meeting of our citizens in the interest of the big fac tory project, at tho Holding Opera House, this (Thursday) evening, at which time tho committees that were appointed- will bo expected to present reports. As to what the committee appointed to wait upon the Belding Uros. will havo to report, readers of the Banner were informed last week. TheBeldings expect in tho near future, in fact it was voted at tho recent an nual meeting of tho Belding Bros. & Co. stockholders, to build another largo mill at some point, this mill to bo 400 feet In length, and to havo a capacity for the employment of 500 hands. Mr. M. M. Belding stated to tho Banner representative, and from our own knowledge we have not tho least rea son to doubt its being a fact, that there were plenty of cities and towns east that would gladly not onlv nav tho taxes for 10 years, but put up tho build ing ready to put machinery Into. We havo cities in Michigan raakinr? such offers to get manufacturing concerns to locate in their midst. But the Bel ding Bros., personally would like to pee this factory located -in tho city of Belding and otter it to us on tho mere condition of tho payment of tho taxes for 10 years. And as a further proof of their generosity and good will, believ ing that a public park would be a last ing source of public pride and pleasure, made their offer in such shape as to in clude tho gift of a large tract, admir ably adapted for such purpose. The sentiment of our citizens so far as we have been ahl Pi trt fan ii nt ft to overwhelmingly in favor of immediate acceptance of the offer, and wo cannot conceive how it could be otherwise. It would not remain open long if made to other cities of this or any other state, and we don't think our citizens will bo any less quick to seo what it means to them. Our city has been built and sustained thus far mainlv hv its manufacturing industries, and our only hopes for the future apparently are aiong tne Hue or fostering our pres ent industries and adding to them as the opportunity presents itself. Two of our present factories wero secured upon similar terms and is there a sin gle individual who would prefer to have his money returned which he paid on that account and havo the fac tories taken away? You can't find one. No more will any one ever regret the acceptance of this offer. Tho committee appointed to investi gate the legality of methods will havo to report that tho only way now open is to vote for water bonds and divert tho money so obtained to this purpose. If it had come at such a time so that It could have been voted on at the reg ular spring election, they could havo been made for park purposes or nublie improvements, but that cannot be done at a special election. There is how ever nothing in the way of doing it In tho manner specified and the method "cuts no Ice" so long as It will stand In the courts and brings about tho re sult. Belding wants that factory and also tho park, and must havo them. Be sure and attend tho meeting at the opera houso this evening. Th THIS AND THAT. OR. J. H.

Tho ancien t8 holloirrwl thnt. rlmnmn. tism was tho work of a demon within a man. Any one who has had an attack of sciatic or Inflammatory rheumatism will agree that the infliction is demon iac enough to warrant tho belief. It had never been claimed that Chamber lain s Iain Balm would cast out de mons, but it will euro rheumatism, and hundreds bear testimony to tho truth or this statement. One application re lieves tho pain, and this quick relief which It affords is alono worth many times its cost. For nalo by all drug glsta. , Herriman R. Firia Walker c. Field Grovenor L.

"Twenty dollars a month on a farm," says an exchange, "is very much bet ter than $35 a month in a city store. As a general thing at the end of nine months tho former has $150 in cash, three pairs of overalls and a straw hat, while the latter has two or three suits of clothes, a pair of coif socks. and $17 in tho hole. Yet there aro seventy-five applicants for tho latter job to one for the former." Belding really ought to-be thi rrne. perous littlo city that sho is, with such men as the Belding Bros.to spend their money in the town's interests. These gentlemen visited the city a few days agoand the citizens succeeded in inter esting them in a park, Belding Bros, agreeing to spend 100 in puttintr it in shape, for every $200 contributed by tho people of tho city. It is needless to say that tho offer will not bo ne glected. Portland Review. Tho next regular teachers' associa tion of Ionia county will bo held in tho court house, Saturday, May 12. It is expected that every teacher or would bo teacher for the coming year will be present. Superintendent of Public In struction Jason E.

This is a verv import ant meeting as tho officers of the asso ciation arc to bo chosen. Tho meetings havo been largely attended this year, but It is hoped this meeting will call out every teacher of this county. News has been received of tho death of Henry G. Miller, an Ionia boy with tho Thirteenth volunteers In tho Phil ippines. Ho is the son of Henry Miller and served with tho Ionia company in Cuba. He spent fivo months in a hos pital in Boston and, rccuperating,camo home. Then he went to Grand Rap ids and joined Company H. Ho Is supposed to havo died in tho hospital at Manila of smallpox. Ho was hurt by a Filipino shell a few weeks ago and had just gone back to his regi ment. A letter was written by him dated March 7, and tho letter received says ho died March 0, making somo confusion in tho matter, leaving tho family in doubt and hoping the report of death is a mistake It is claimed that Beldinir Bros, will erect a large factory in Belding if tho iaciory is exempt from taxation for ten years and that a special meeting will oeneiaintho silk city to vote unnn tho proposition. If the new factory is exempt from taxation, surely tho fac tories they already have thero should havo the samo privilege. . Then again tho city would havo nn Wi t say that any institution should bo ex empt from county and stato taxes and a vote to make such an exemption would undoubtedly invalldato tho tax rolls and in caso Of an nhinntin fo,. could be raised In tho city. Saranac A slight misunderstandinc on vour part, neighbor Potts. A careful read- ing of tho Banner for tho last two weeks wilUhow you that tho pronoi- tion Is to pay the taxes, not to exempt from taxation and no other couro is being considered, so all fears regard ing tho validity of tho tax rolls can bo set at rest.
