The loeal political situation was never in such a muddled state since the city was organized as it is this spring. Where before wo have always had only two tickets in the field there now seems good prospects of four. The BANNE acknowledges It can make no very clear forecast of the outcome but, will hav to await developments. Besides tho usual Republican and Democratic cau cuses, the Prohibitionists have Issued a call and expect to put full city and ward tickets in nomination. Some say neighbor Tucker of tho Star will be their nominee for mayor, others say it will bo Dr. Morris. Their cancus not ice appears in another column. Bu perhaps the greatest surprise is occa sioned by tho notices which havo been posted calling a ''Citizen's caucus" for Tuesday evening to which all citi zens "interested in good govern ment, irrespective of former polit ical affiliations" aro invited. This is reported to bo a non-partisan move by members of both parties, who havo becomo dissatisfied for various reasons with tho way things havo been conducted. It is said that II. J. Leon ard is their candidate for Mayor. On the Republican ticket tho sentiment apparently is concentrated upon Dwight C. Sheldon for Mayor. Geo W Moulton considers that ho is en titled to a renomlnation for clerk, but has an oppouent in Alva W. Pringle Tho three supervisors it is presumed will not refuse a renomlnation. For aldermen wo havo heard the names of E. E. Hudson in tho first v.ard and M. a. r limns in tno second ward men tioned. In the third ward Jame6 Cra mcr,anold citizen and staunch republi can is In the hands of his friends. In the Democratic ranks all seems to be confusion, many leading lights advis ing that no ticket be nominated. Oth ers of course do not agree with this. F. J. Luick's name is mentioned in connection with tho mayorship on that ticket. !. ti. VANWIMiLt: ii:.i. The sad news was received here Saturday that Prof. J. G. VanWinkle had passed over to join the great ma jority at his home in Washington, D. C, where he held a government posi tion. It is with a feeling of more than usual sorrow that we pen these words. The writer had known "Van" for many years and we truly mourn to think that that noble heart had ceased to beat, tho tongue to speak words of friendship, the tired brain and arm to work for those he loved. During the four years he served as superintend ent of our city schools he labored un der most discouraging disadvantages, disease had fastened itself upon him and in spite of all his endeavors to loosen its grip it only seemed to secure firmer hold. He bravely fought against these tremendous odds but at last he is vanquished and laid low. The sympathy of many Belding friends go out to the sorrowing wife and two children now without a father'6 protection. The remains were brought to Manchester, Mich., for burial. The class which graduated from the high school here under his guidance made up a purse and secured some beautiful flowers which were sent as a token of their love and esteem. Peace to his ashes. The following resolutions were adopted by the Belding high school: Whekkas. We in sorrow record tbe deutb of our estci nu d friend und former teacher; und Vv utiiKAf. He was the esteemed superintend ent of tho Jielding public schools for four ton seeutlvo years; therefore be it UexolveU. I hat we the members of the I lei ing llitfh School, extend our heartfelt sympa thy to his bereaved ones and unite with bis many f-iends in mourning his loss.

Sunday even ing there will bo a union service at which Rev. D. M. Canrlght will speak pou "Why Christians keep Sunday." No man In Michigan probably is better able to givj an interesting discussion of that question than Elder Canrlght nd all aro invited to hear him. J. A. Spencer and wife returrted Sat urday from their Washington and To ledo trip which they enjoyed very much. In the former city they witness ed the inauguration of President Mc- Kinlcy, attended tho t-amo church which ho did, visited the many public buildings including the capitol, being present at sessions of congress, also vis ited Alexandria, Arlington national cemetery and other places of interest in tho vicinity. It was a very enjoya ble and memorable trip, occupying about four weeks. It was announced that the last pedro party given at the K. P. hall would clo-o the season in that lino of enter tainment, but tho ladles concluded they would like to glvo one, so they aro to do so tomorrow (Friday) evening, and it is rumored that they intend to put tho men way into the background in tho entertainment provided.

The citizens of Flint and Belding can condole with each other. Flint people were much interested in an electric road being granted a grade crossing with the steam roads there, but rail road commissioner Qsborne refused it on tno same irround which ho took here, that our state laws would not per mit it. That law certainly needs amending. W. II. Bradley's 6toro at Greenville, was damaged by firo Monday night. 'overed by insurance. Tho W. S. Can field Co has secured tho stock and will bring it here, jdacing It in the oom formerly occupied by the Palace Bakery, adjoining their store on the west, and will thereupon Inaugurate one of the greatest bargain sales ever conducted in Belding. Mr. Canfield was in Greenville Wednesday to in voice the stock. The box social last Friday evening for the benefit of the school library, held at Kldd and was at Kidd's, proved to be a grand success. The large houso being full, tho evening was spent in lively games and a short program was rendered, after which auctioneer Thomas Kldd and clerk Lewis Berry of Chadwlck, attracted the attention of the crowd. They performed their duties elaborately, tho proceeds bein $15.70. The party dispersed during the wee hours of the night, all report- ng an extra lino time.
