Uricker was nominated at Sarunac on Thursday, aa the demo cratic candidate for representative for the western district. Messrs Henry Frace, C. F. Huntsman, William Mer cer were in the list of names balloted on. Uricker was nominated on second ballot although a third was taken in order to satisfy certain members of the convention who wished it. Personally speaking: the Haxkek has nothing but admiration for Mr. Uricker, but repre sent! ntf as be does all the isms of the democratic party as at present pro mulgated, he is indued a poor republi can that would cast his vote for him. When so many men are nominated and elected to the legislature whoso honor does not seem to be above tarnish, It is a matter of congratulation to the voters of this district that the nominees on both sides are men in whom we have full confidence. Everyone acquainted with John Mick knows he would sooner cutotT his riyht hand than knowingly perform adL-honest act. He is entitled to and will have the united and solid support of the republicans of the dis trict. The Democrats are staggering as usual under a multiplicity of issues that do not fit all parts of the country. They can not talk free silver in the east, they dare not press anti-expansion in the west, they fear to dwell on free trade in the manufactur ing districts, and the "consent of the governed" is an expression non grati in the south. Mr. IJryan attributes the non-fulfillment of his calamity prophecies to th3 good weather and fine crops. Yet, judging from the tenor of his speeches four years ago, one might easily have concluded that the sun would stop shining and the rain cease to fall un less 10 to 1 was adopted without delay. The Michigan Bulletin of Vital Sta tistics states that there were 2,954 deaths reported in the 6tate for the month of August which would corre spond to a death rate of 14.5 per 1,000 population. Hate for preceding month 12.4 and for Aug. 'U9, 13.8. Deaths in Ionia Co. 45, in Helding City 7. "Men, not walls, make a city" is a most appropriate inscription for the medal with which the siege of Pekin is to be commemorated. It is strongly suggestive of a "progress, not walls make a nation" maxim for the Repub lican campaign banners. If there were really any danger rf empire there would bo no Democratic, Republican, Populist or Prohibition party. Tariff, silver, and everything else would bo forgotten and the entire nation would rise as one mau and put it down. The experience of tho city of Omaha with a padded census should be a warn ing to those Ncbraskans who would vote for a padded currency. There is always a day of settlement. The democrats now regard Ohio as a "doubtful state. ', They might go even farther and regard it as very doubtful as far as they are concerned. General prosperity Is talking during the present campaign from every gran ary, workshop and store counter in all this broad land. Chairman Jones say that New York is to bo redeemed. ' Wasn't that done at the last presidential election? OOVUKNOIW lltOCLAMATION. To the people of the State of Michigan: The news of the terrible calamity which has befallen the people of Gal veston, Texas, has by this time reach ed the remotest parts of Michigan The reports of the number of deaths and the extent of the destitution re suiting from the flood and storm are as yet somewhat conflicting. Probably the most reliable state ment is that which comes from the Mayor of Galveston, that the loss of life will exceed 5,000 and that there are 125,000 people homeless, in need of shelter, food and clothing. I am sure that these fact s need only be stated to bring a prompt and generous response from the people of Michigan. I earnestly hope that this State, in proportion to its population and wealth, will be second to none in the size of its contribution to the fund for the relief of the people of Galves ton. Monty orders, checks and currency in amounts, no matter how small, may be sent to Hon. Geo. A. Steel, Treas urer of the State of Mlc. igan, Lansing Michigan, who will see that the funds are forwarded to the proper author! ties for the aid of the sufferers. In those cities where persons have already been designated to receive fnnds, it will facilitate matters to hand contributions to them. This call is intended not only to urge all those who have not done so to contribute but also to name someone to whom people in smaller towns and in the country, where arrangements have not been made, may forward contributions. Fortunately calamaties like this have very seldom happened to the people of our Republic, but when they have, our duty to our fellow country man has been promptly done. Let the response In this case be liberal. Correspondence fromChauncey post office to the Grand Rap ds Herald states: Ola Terry who eloped with Rev. Chas. F. Smith, a Kent county pastor, some time ago and recently re turned mentally unbalanced, has re gained her right mind. Referring to the affair she says she was as much to blame as Smith and that they had talked of going away together, but had not decided on the day. She is an xious to know if her folks and Smith's are on good terms and wants to know where Smith's wife is and says she thought a great deal of her. She says she wrote a letter and sent it to Smith from Grand Rapids and also says they are married and she only came home on a visit. She expects to return 60on. A good many people question the truth of her story and it is hoped the real facts will soon come to light. - 1 t The semi-annual apportionment of primary school money to be made Nov. 6, will distribute $1,170,000 among the counties of the state at the rate of $1 05 for each child of school age in tho respective counties. This is the larg est rate by nearly 11 per capita ever known in the state, and will give school fnnds a substantial boost. Last May the rate was 50 cents per capita. The increase is due partly to the In creased earnings of railroads, insur ance and other corporations paying specific taxes, which goto support pub lic schools, and partly to the collection of railroad taxes in July instead of January, as formerly. Regarding the Republican candidate of Representative from this district. the Saranac Advertiser says: John Mick of Campbell, is one of the best known Republicans of the county, hav ing represented his township for many years upon tho board of supervisors. fie is a farmer, as well as a first class business man, and during the past two years has held the responsible position of Deputy County Treasurer. He is a man that every republican can give his hearty support to, and no one can say he represents any faction, for he comes from a town that has no faction, but which, under all circumstances, can be depended upon to pull the whole ticket out of the hole if necessary. An esteemed contemporary, not an organ for any party has this in a re cent issue: "An exchange says in its editorial columns: 'The average American, no matter what his politics may be, is not likely to enthuse over prospect of turning the country Into an empire.' As there has been noth ing in the course of events to Indicate such an outcome possible, it is amus ing in the extreme to note the long and highly colored articles that ap pear daily bearing on the 'empire' question. Probably not one man in 500 believes that we are tending in any way toward such a destination, yet men will peruse such stuff, look wise and predict calamities that would make a tiralc person quake in his boots. There is too much of this thing going on for the good of the country. The man who is busy at the work bench, the desk or any other place has no time for such things, and he never bothers his head with lurid tales of awful things to come. He is the good citizen; his country, his town and his home are his pride, and ho is never found willing to put bis shoulder to the wheel and help push the world along. Calamity walling in times like tho preeent, while not very prevalont. is still found in sufficient quantity to bo disgusting." Till: IONIA FA lit.
