THE BELDING BANNER
C. It. CO Will N, Kililor. THURSDAY, AUG. 29, 1901, i:mn:it imioni:. Arrlvetl on Time. The almanac ways about this time look out for a lif,r blow.--Last week's llANNKU. The editor of the H annum don't be lieve in newspaper quarrels. As a rule they are needless ami take up a great deal of space widt h initfht be utilized to far letter advantage from the standpoint of the general reader, whom we arc here to please. Conse quently what we have to say in an swer to the essay in last week's Star will le made as brief as possible, and will end the matter as far as we are concerned, unless new developments arise which have to be treated from the standpoint of news matter, which was our only intention in what was waid In the Hannku of two weeks ao. Wo have no quarrel with the pres ent editor of the Star, with the new owners, or the Citizens Lijfht Co. The parties interested in the lat ter have seemed to think that we were opposed to them ever since the change in the management nearly two years ago and have taken pains to draw away from the otlice as much business as possible, but we leave it to all disinterested parties if they have not had fair treatment at our hands, in fact refrained from criticism when perhaps it would have been justified. It is a matter of regret to the editor of the Hannku that this electric light light enters so prominently in all our local affairs, we wish it were otherwise, and we started out with the intention of giving 1 m t li sides al nolute fair play in all treatment in our columns. The article published in the Han NEK was absolutely true we have reason to believe and we hold to the (statements therein made. What changes have taken place since our statement or may take place in the immediate future we know not, but we gave it as it stood then. We are not at librrty to give the names of our informants but could do so if necessary and can say their reputa tion for truth and veracity is not us ually questioned. Three men inform ed us that they had been approached In regard to assuming the editorial and business management upon salary by the parties whom we stated were the purchasers. Two men have also stated that they saw the check given for the purchase and that the facts were as stated. If it is a square business deal and the purchasers are not afraid or ashamed to 1k known why do they not come out into the open and declare themselves. Mr. Tucker lias stated time and again in private during the past few weeks that he had sold but refused to give the names of the buy ers. "You can't fool all the people all the time.'' These under the hat deals may fool some of them a part of the time but the facts will come out The Banner is here to print the news and tell the truth about it. Saying that it is anybody's ''organ" don't make it so, and we have nothing to conceal. That the people like it and approve of it is shown by the fact it has the largest circulation of any newspaper in Uelding, and it is going tocontinuc to "hew to the line, let the chips fall where they will." The Tenth district republicans, nominated H. II. Aplin as the late Congressman Crump's successor. Mr. Aplin has long been a figure in east ern Michigan politics, and upon many occasions has demonstrated his abili ties as a politician. As chairman of the congressional committee in Mr. Crump's three campaigns he was largely responsible for the splendid showing his candidate made at the polls. His career had not been con lined to managing campaigns for oth ers either as he was twice elected auditor general upon the republican state ticket. Mr. Aplin's nomination was made on the twenty-second ballot which, when it is considered there were eight or ten favorite sons to select from, was a particularly good sboing. The preliminary canvass and the convention, while spirited, were marked by good nature. With Mr. Aplin In congress the Tenth dis trict will be ably represented. Mr. IJryan in the latest issue of The Commoner makes it clear that he has no intention of permitting the demo cratic party to ignore the principles of the Chicago and Kansas platforms, if he can prevent it, and that lie will light to the end the plans of the alleg ed harmonizers who as a first step to wards party peace propose to oust everybody who has had a hand in par ty management during the past eiuht ycar- Mrs. Frank Mason lias been appoint ed sole agent in this city for Dr. Shac kclton's Inhalar and Inhalent. The many persous using this remedy will be glad to hear that it has recently been greatly improved. Mrs. Mason will call at any residence and give a free trial treatment, or the same can be had at her residence. Mrs. Mason also handles the Kleans-AU in bulk and the famous Snyder extracts and perfumes. i'aris Green at llenedict's. At the la9t National convention of the Modern Woodmen society, held In St. Paul (Minn.) last June, a resolu tion was adopted providing for the appointment of a committee of live on revision of assessment rates. This committee will formulate various propositions for a change in plan and these propositions will be submitted to the mcmliership for discussion next January, through the columns of the society's onicial paper, a copy of which goes to each member. At the next biennial convention, to be held at Indianapolis, Ind. in June, HM)3, the plan which seems to be the most pop ular with the memlership will le finally adopted. In December, l!KM), the membership of the Modern Wood men society voted on a proposition to establish a reserve fund, and it was defeated by a majority of 32,2X. About this time of the year over seers of the 'highways warn out the men of the r respective districts, plow up the centre of the road, throw in roots and sod from the sides and call It "working on the road." Shov elers set on the fence and talk, and loys a dozen years old, drive a team and are credited with a man's day's work. This country has been settled about 70 years, and this sort of a thing has yone on from year to year and the roads are but little better than at the beginning and some are worse. It seems It is impossible to make roads by the present system. A road commissioner who will plow up the road should be asked to immed iately resign his otlice and someone appointed who is up-to-date and knows his business. The road bed should never be broken by a plow, but should le gradually raised from year to year until it is higher than the ground on either side. Systemize the work, re quire a full day's labor, and quit fool ing and we can have passable high ways. Kx. In many of the towns of Southern Michigan cement walks areUing put down at from c to 7Jc per square foot. In Albion the price is Vyic and the city pays half the amount. Whether this is the result of the new cement industry which has recently been developed in this state or not it is hard to state, but it is certain that the price has become considerablj- re duced In many places ,and that it is today the most economical walk in the long run that can le built, as well as giving the K-st appearance to the streets. The Hannku favors the re late plan in Holding which has been tried in so many other cities and vil lages, and given, so far as we have been able to discover, satisfaction in every instance. They are a public lenelit and it is entirely fitting and proper that at least a portion of the expense should le paid from the pul lic funds. Holding claims to lie an up-to-date town and is in most things, but in this matter of cement walks, she is a little slow. Hotter late than never, however and we have faith that our city fathers will sec it later if not sooner. Honored by Ynle. Messrs.
