THURSDAY, May 24, 1906 With thi closing down of the lid in Louisville, Ky., on Sunday last, so that nont of the southern gentlemen could get "a little red, sah," the truth becomes more apparent that the days of the open saloons are numbered. Public spirit and the peo ple in general are becoming opposed to its continuance. The banquet at Ionia Tuesday evening In honor of Wm. Alden Smith, candidate for United States senator, is only another straw indicative of the love and admiration borne by the republicans of Ionia county for their chosen representative. And the love and admiration is not borne by the fifth district alone. His prowess is far reaching and could the people choose he would surely be the successor to that grand old statesman, Russell A. Alger. Ur from New York on that fatal day, when McKinley cold in death did lay, there a man of power and might, who in the day time and the night, for justice stood, on western soil, in southern clime. At home, abroad, and all the time, in north and south, in east and west, standing al ways for the best, as good men should Brave, fearlesn, noble Roosevelt, thy pow er for right is truly felt. N6 tyrants hand shall e'er feel free to trifle with monopoly, when thou art near. And so with trusts, whose mighty power, have menaced us from hour to hour. Thy hand alone should seal thy fate, and banish them from every state. The way is clear. One thino in the application of the law at primary of June 12 demands careful consideration. Besides the vote on the acceptance of the method, and the vote for candidates for governor and lieuten ant COvernnr ll.ru n(r i called upon to vote for delegates to the county convention which will choose dele gates to the state convention to nominate who uwier state officers anu to aisirici conventions whese candidates are not nominated by method. His ticket will contain blank lines for the number of del egates assigned to his precinct, and he must write in the names; and many will hardly be prepared to do that without previous consultation. So, some informal caucusing preliminary to that will proba bly be found found necessary, in order that the voter may understand who are willing to be delegates, and who would accaptably represent him as such. It would certainly seem desirable if in some way the voter could be informed as to what candidates or what issue, on which sentiment had divided, would be favored by a vote for this or that proposed delegate. There is one thing apparent in the great and wonderful management of the uni verse, and that is the fact that, no matter what people may think, the creator of all is opposed to Sunday ball games. During the progress of a ball game near Mobile, Ala., on Sunday last, a bolt of lightning struck in the midst of a number of base ball enthusiasts, killing five persons at once and seriously injuring twenty-five others. "Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy,' is seemingly as important to day as in mosaic times. Mr. A. K. Greenlaw. Mr. A. E.
