MAMNER. 2 FOUKTKKNTIl YEAH. NO. 35. HELPING, MICH., THURSDAY, JANUARY 22, 1903. WHOLE NO. 711. BILLS ARB COMING IN Sixty II,.e Been Introduced Into the Legislature. ROUTINE OF ELECTING SENATOR Concurrent Keolutlon Oppolm; He el profit y with Cubu With drawn The .1 link ft. Lansing, Mich., Jan. 20. The two houses are now down to business, the standing committees having been an nounced by the presiding oliicers last week, so that the necessary machin ery for caring for whatever may be dumped Into the legislative hopper Is now at hand. The indications are that the usual amount of local legislation, practically all of which ought to be itept away from the legislature entire ly, will bo rounded up to occupy the attention of the solons. Thus far some sixty bills have been Introduced in the '. 11USSELL A. ALGEK. two houses, and nine-tenths of them are purely local in their application. The time m-ijr possibly come when the people of the state of Michigan will coii.stiit to a change In tho consti tution which will leave this local legis latioa to the legislative bodies of the respective localities where It properly belongs, and thus cut the sessions of the utate legislature squarely in two. Even as It Is, only the representatives of the respective localities which the measures aiTect pay the slightest at tention to thos-e bills, but the expense entailed by them is increased wonder fully by the present system. Tote for l'nl(il Stat Senator. Today the members of each house will, in accordance with the require ment, vote for United States senator. Today's vot" will be taken in each house separately, the provision belli 3 that it shall Ik? so taken on the sec ond Tuesday of the legislative session. Tomorrow at high noon the two houses will meet in joint convention and the senators and representatives will cast their votes for their choice for this high MHcc. This will com plete the re luirements, and General Itussell A. Alger will then have been formally elected senator for the unex pired term of the late James McMil lan. It is altogether likely that the legis lature will adjourn this week for ten days. This is to enable the two houses, or the committees thereof, to visit the various state Institutions. In nay first letter I predicted that the leg Ulature would go back to the old plan 01 having a so-called Junket, and it was returned to by uyanimous consent, experience having taught those who succeeded In having it abolished two years ago that it Is a saver of both time and money. This junket will take place much earlier this year than in y previous sessions, the desire of the presiding olllcers being to have this necessary business out of the way at the earliest possible moment Favors Anti-Cigarette Law. Mrs. Lucy I 'a go Caston of the antl dgarette league of Chicago was here last week ani Interviewed a number of legislators with a view to having the anti-cigarette law of Tennessee en acted In Michigan. This law provides fine and imprisonment f o making, selling or bringing Into the.tate any cigarettes. It Is understood that Sen ator Westover will introduce the bill In the senate and that loth the execu tive and educational departments of the state will give It their moral sup port at least. If the recommendations of the state court of mediation and arbitration, which wore made to the legislature n few days au . are adopted there will 1k enacted .1 law which will require the chief executive of each city and village in tii- st m t to notify the court promptly of .ll la I tor troubles within their respective jurisdictions, so that the court in;v tender its services in effecting a settlement. The court does not believe in compulsory arbitration, ryU"Vrig It an Infringement of the con stitutional rights of the Individual.

Cautfht a Kunaway Horse. Last Saturday Miss Mary Yost one of the eflicient teachers in the citv schools together with Uoorge I iced", Mr. A. Friedman and little Francis Sheldon drove out to see Mrs. II C. Seely in the country who recently sus tained a severe injury. They had a single horse and double seated sleigh, in going out a bolt drowned out loo-nlnf t ho shafts but Miss Yost the driver was equal to the occasion and soon hd it patched up, but on the return home was where it took nerve and foresight and quick action to avert a Mnashup and possible injury to life and limbs. While crossing the bridge at Can non's Creek she saw a runaway horse and rig coming on a dead run immedi ately toward them. She reined out of the road quickly but the runaway horse which had no driver headed directly for them and Miss Yost saw- that the only way to avert a collision was to head biinoi7ai, i by: almost superhuman effort grasped the animal by the bits and turned him away. She was greatly shaken up by her brave act, w hile the other occupants of the sleigh hade tubed out expecting to have seen every thing smashed to pieces and they in the general mixup YOl'.NU (illtl, in i:s.

The little girl has had a hard bat tle for life for several years. While living in one of the Blocks on Main street a few years ago she had the misfortune to break through an out side cellar way and dislocated one of the bones at the hip joint, and since that time she has been crlnnled. Later, tuberculosis set in and result ed fatally, although Dr. Litle gave her the best treatment possible. She was very patient In her suffer ing, was a very bright child and gave evidence of being readv to die. A profusion of flowers were arranged about the casket at the funeral which was held Wednesday at the home, Rev. A. O. Carmen officiating. The remains were taken to Morley for interment.

Millard came to Port land to round out a long and useful life, free from the cares of an active preacher, but his services have deen in great demand, performing official rites and supplying pulpits in the ab sence of the regular pastors. Few of his couples have been divorced, but in several instances he has been called upon to speak the last sad rites for some of those he united In matrimony.

Shortly after ten o'clock in the forenoon last Saturday while every thing seemed to be running smoothly at the Ilanney Refrigerator Works in Greenville one of the boilers ex ploded and scattered death and de struction in the wake of its fearful force.

Some of them hadgrown to o pounds In weight in i all were beauties. When Mr. Rimes came home he found the dogs there and drove them off. He says Ihey were light colored bird dogs thin and hungry looking, with black or brown spots but he was to much wrought up over the destruc tion to follow them and ascertain the owners. He says, however, that any dog caught on the premises molesting the birds will have a charge of buckshot thrown Into him from a musket. I'KASTKIt ON FINE ItOAsT.

He was considerably worked up by the loss, and an Investigation brought out the fact that McElroy's red dog had cniffed the meat on the sleigh as It drove along, and fol owing the load took advantage of a temporary halt to swipe one of the juciest pieces of sirloin roast.

Two other workmen were injured with being struck by pieces of brick or iron one of whom Ed Hammond is reported in a serious condition and may yet die. In the office where John Lewis and his daughter were at work the walls and window s came tumbling in and it was with difficulty they escaped un harmed.
