Word of the sale of American thor oughbred horses in the Argentine re public has come to this country In a consular report. James II. Haggin and James It. Keene recently sold 75 race horses there, and the American consul general at IUienos Ayres writes: "While these sales did not come up to anticipations, still, taking everything into consideration, tiey were fairly successful. American horses are -absolutely tmknown here, and everyone turns to England for racing stock. Rich and influential breeders in this country have Im ported prominent stallions from Eng land at fancy prices, and expected great results from breeding them with cheap domestic mares. I believe that if the class of horses desired are sent in the future they will bring good prices." The board of censors at Stuttgf.rt, Germany, would not permit the per formance in that city recently of Borngraeber's drama entitled "The First Man and Woman." A Stuttgart paper says: "This play is simple and pure, with its Paradise setting, and not a work on which the pious anger of the censor should have been poured out." In the same city the owner of a hall refused to let it to Gabrlelle Reuter, who wished to read there from her novel, "The House of Tears." The same paper says that the German peo ple are awakening to the fact that all things that are written are not worthy of production. At Bromberg the pub lic sense of decency was shocked by the vending' of post cards bearing a reproduction of Josef Limborg's "Lore Jei." The cards were confiscated and destroyed. A man in New York was exonerated on the charge of having shot and killed a detective on the ground that the detective , had no warrant, had hown'no proof that he was an officer of the law in forcing his way into the man's residence and had been taken for a burglar. The right of personal freedom is one which is not always re garded by the employes of the law. If they resort to lawless means in gain ing their ends they have no rights beyond those of other lawbreakers and must stand the consequences. Per sonal freedom is one of the most im portant rights to be safeguarded by the law, and it ought to be respected by those whom the law intrusts with the duty of enforcement. ' The early vegetable season being well advanced In the south, that sec-. tJon is beginning to look over the peach orchards. It appears from the inspection that everything is promis ing for a good yield. Georgia alone counts on 4,000 carloads, and Missouri Is quite confident that if conditions continue as at present the state can how that if will produce a crop which in size and quality will be second to none. This is getting to be a peach of a country in every respect. Germany is to have its first "acad emy of aviation," which will teach all that is known of the art of aerial nav igation.

CURTISSINVOLVEDIN SCANDAL Member of Detroit Forbidden En trance to House Chamber Follow ing Visit to Clerk's House Solon's Side of Case. Lansing. D. Z. Curtlss, a shoo deal er of Detroit and member of the Mich igan house of reprec-entatives, was asked to leave the legislative halls and told by Speaker Campbell not to return at the present session. Curtiss, whose name was linked with that of the wife of Sidney Hall, D. Z. Curtiss. Journal clerk In the house, declares he win not leave Lansing until the ses sion ends, and that if any legislation comes up which he regards as being vital to his constituents he will ignore the warnings of Campbell and will take his seat in the assembly. In interviews the Detroit represen tative says that the alleged scandal with which his name has been con nected is a plot against him. He claims that he was not ordered from the house floor, but decided to save his colleagues embarrassment and left voluntarily In view of the false ru mors afloat. Flowers Bill Defeated. After all that has been said and done by the legislature regarding re forms In the handling of state lands the Flowers public domain bill was defeated by the house by a vote of 42 to 22. The bill was tabled. Tinder the Flowers bill there was a plan for a start in reforestation in Michigan, and the future control of state tax lands was placed in charge of a commission. With the defeat of that bill practically all hope is lost of legislation along this line. Since early In the year the legis lature has devoted much attention to reforestratlon and the manner of handling state lands, but when it came to abandoning the old sys tem the representatives fell away from the plan and any further move practically will have to wait for two years. Land Commissioner Russell and Senators Ming. Kline, Foster, and Fairbanks returned from a visit to the state forestry reserve In Roscommon and Crawford counties. There are 40,000 acres in the reserve, on one end of which a start has been made In growing trees. Russell says that his trip convinces him there is nothing up there worth while', and he believes that the reforestratlon project Is a failure. Let Jackson Out of Jury Expense. Senator L. Whitney Watkins' bill, designed primarily to exempt Jack son county from the cost of the Arm strong grand Jury investigation and amending the existing law to provide that the state shall bear all expenses of investigation and trial In case of malfeasance of office on the part of any state officer or employe, passed the senate committee of the whole; was placed on Its immediate passage and went through without a dissent ing vote. This is a measure of more than ordinary Interest in Ingham county. For years Ingham has borne the expense of trials of persons who violated their trust in state office, and every effort before to put through a bill amending the law to make the state at large bear such expense was met with stubborn resistance. Senate Is Even Up Now. Practically all the senate bills have now been passed by that body and it Is now ready to consider what the house has for it and quit. Senate Rips Up Liquor Bill. Provisions in the Warner-Cramton liquor bill, which members of the house regarded with much pride, were ripped out of the measure by the sen ate. The house passed the bill with a section prohibiting druggists sell ing liquor except on a physician's prescription, but the senate elimi nated the entire section, ns well as limiting to cities of over 40,000 popu lation the provision allowing councils to extend the closing hours of saloons to midnight i ' A' & J V ? MICHIGAN'S HALL OF FAME REP. DAVID S. CHANDLER. 6ENATOR SHIELDS. v . V -v Sip . N ; Will Print Report at Once. Representative Robert Ogg of De troit, member of the special commit tee on prison investigation which was responsible for the sensational report relating to the conditions in the Mar quette prison, stirred up some trouble for the state printer when the an nouncement was made that the report would be delayed. Ogg objected strenuously to the de lay, which he said was meant to de stroy the purpose of the report. Rep resentative John Perry took a hand in the objection. The speaker called Representative Perry's attention to the fact that he Is acting chairman cf the committee on printing and he might be able to hurry up the printer or accomplish something where the chair had failed. Representative Perry and the print ing committee visited the state print er, and were somewhat surprised to learn that he was prepared to get out the report, or any other printing, with in any reasonable time demanded. The committee is highly indignant that an attempt should have been made, through a statement that the printer is unable to get out the re port before next week, to smother the report and keep it from the attention and consideration of the public. When the committee t returned to the house after Its visit to the state printer, it announced that the report would be prlpted and ready if it was so decided, and Perry's motion to have it printed in the Journal was car ried. He rose to explain the matter, but was shut off in the hurry to ge the motion through. Liabilities of Employes Bill Killed. Largely owing to suspicion that the measure practically restored the dead ly provisions of the notorious Raillee limited liability law, the bill of Rep resentative Stewart of Grand Rapids, relating to the liability of employes was killed in the house. Speaker Campbell raised the ques tion of whether the iniquitious pro visions of the Raillee bill would not bo again put in force by the bill. He asked if the first section of the bill didn't provide for a change relating to the measure of damages for In Juries resulting In death. Stewart examined the bill, and expressed the belief that such was not the case. Hut the house was all suspicion at the mere mention of the Raillee act, and voted to concur in the striking out, 40 to 38. Victory for Flatters. ' Those lighting to keep the state from retaining possession of the St. Clair Flats won a victory in the house when the Judiciary committee report ed out the bill sent over by the sen ate providing for renting the Flats, with amendments made which allow the occupants of quarters there to buy the sites of their cottages and buildings at the rates fixed in the bill passed in 1899. Fair Appropriations Pass. The senate has passed the two bills carrying apporpriations for the state and western Michigan fairs, after re ducing the amounts to $10,000 for the state fair and to $6,000 for the west ern fair.

Kermit Roosevelt Had a Lone Night in the Jungle. It became known Friday that Ker mit Roosevelt lost his way from his father's camp near Machakos, on Fri day, the 7th, and spent an entire night alone on horseback riding through a region unknown to him. On Saturday morning he turned up at Kiu, a sta tion on the railway. Inquiring there the way to camp, "lie was given the desired directions. Roosevelt and his son arrived at the Ju Ja ranch of George McMillan on the 14th. They came from their camp at Machakos. They will remain at Ju Ja from 4 to 10 days, acc6rdlng to tho luck they have in hunting lm palla, buffalo, warthog and waterbuck. At the conclusion of their visit with Mr. McMillan, Mr. Roosevelt and his son will come to Nairobi. The region in which Kermit Roose velt is reported to have been lost lies between the Athl river and the Ugan da railway. Kiu, where he finally found himself, Is about 50 miles be low Nairobi, and CO or 40 miles south east of Machakos. There is an old cart road from Machakos to Kiu, but otherwise the country and the region thereabouts Is very sparsely Inhabited by natives of the Wakamba tribe, a peaceful people engaged chiefly in agriculture. Gagged and Robbed. Otto Sosnof8kI had some debts to pay. He went to a bank In North Ianslng and drew a considerable sum of money. Otto was found at 11 o'clock Saturday evening on Pennsylvania av enue by Patrolman Ran O'llricn, in a semi-conscious condition and gagged with a rag and a piece of wire. Young Sosnofskl was unable to walk when found. His face was badly cut by the wire gag which had to be removed with pincers. Fortunately for Otto he had paid his debts before being at tacked. The robbers got but $3. Militia Promotions. It is said by those close to Gov. Warner that if he appoints Adjt.-Gen. William T. McGurrin warden at Jack son prison, he will appoint Quartermaster-General James II. Kidd. of Ionia, adjutant-general, and Col. Wal ter G. Rogers, of Detroit, now assist ant quartermaster-general, to succeed Gen. Kidd. Friends of Gen. Harrah, of Detroit, have bc-n working hard to land him as adjutant-general, but it is said that Gov. arner has made up his mind to -appoint Gen. Kidd. "Doc" Collins, ex-patrolman, who was refused a liquor license by the Ann Arbor common council, will ap peal for a mandamus to compel the council to grant him a license. This action will test the validity of the new city ordinance.

It now develops that the motive for the killing of Marrazzo Paryurate, by another Italian miner, Joe Dascota, in Stamhaugh, was that the dead man had killed a brother of the latter sev eral years ago, in Italy. The love af fair in which the men were concerned was a side issue. In an address to a large body of citizens, at the banquet given In his honor at the Cadillac hotel, Detroit, Dr. F. M. Shumway. secretary of the state board of health, stated that the prevalent epidemic of typhoid, which has slightly Increased of late, Is due to the impure drinking water. DAK IIS WIDESPREAD FOWLERVILLE THE CENTER OF SATURDAY'S FIERCE f STORM. WRECK OF BUILDINGS. One Death and Many Injuries Make Up the Sad Record Aside From the Property Loss. Fowlerville and surroundinR country for a radius of two miles is strewn with wreckage, with probably 23 fam ilies homeless. The damage wrought by Saturday aiternoon's cyclone will reach unwards of $40,000. Townspeo ple did not realize the severity of the windstorm until Sunday, and then everyone whose home hsd been spared turned out to assist the unfortunate ones in gathering up their property. Not until lone after the cyclone nau passed over did many of the residents leave their homes and places of em ployment. Many were frightened stone stiff and, In some instances, peo ple were even afraid to venture into the open after the rainbow had made Its Eppearance, giving assurance that tho storm had ended. They were timid even until Sunday, many fearing that the tornado-like windstorm would return ta wreck their homes and, per haps, send them to eternity. A conservative estimate places tne number of buildings damaged, or de molished at 230. This may be in creased when all districts are heard from. Dwellings were unroofed, barns and outbuildings demolished, orchards uprooted and boards and trees carried for several rods in the air. The houses and store buildings clustered In town escaped serious damage, although they were not left untouched. Many awn ings, chimneys, verandas and roofs were carried away, narrowly missing the hf ?ds of pedestrians in the cou-;e of their travel. One known death has resulted from the storm, that of Mrs. Wm. Ludke, aged 60. who lived about four miles from here. When the storm broke her house was damaged and she was so frightened, according to her hus band, that she went into hysterics and fainted on the kitchen floor, dying shortly afterwards. Four persons are known to have been hurt, and It is be lieved there were other cases of in juries not yet reported. Col. Avery Stood Mute. Col. Stephen H. Avery, former quartermaster-general, indicted by the grand jury for the embezzlement of $2,300, was arraigned before Judge Parkinson In Jackson, waived the reading of the Indictment, stood mute and was held for trial, ball being fixed at 13,000. Charles Lewis and J. H. Mahoney qualified as sureties. Sheriff Hean arrested Col. Avery on a sage brush ranch near Wendell, Lincoln county, Idaho, which he had purchased. The indictment charges that Avery embezzled the sum of $2, 300 by collecting money on a contract for a heating plant, which his firm In stalled In the postofflce. On January 6, 190G, Postmaster Richardson turned over a draft to Avery, which he cashed at a local bank, and immediate ly left the city, leaving creditors in the lurch. His bondsmen, a surety company, has made good the defllclt. Avery claims he has a good defense on the charge of embezzlement, but would make no other statement. A Mysterious Girl. A tangible clue seems to have been secured by the Muskegon officers to the Identity of Hattie Talket, the 13-year-old girl, whose unbroken silence 6lnce she was first found in that city, unkempt and begging, has baffled all the attempts of the Muskegon and Grand Rapids authorities to find her parents. County poor Superintendent Gordon has received an unsigned let ter mailed from Newaygo Inquiring for the girl, purporting to be from her parents. The writer states that he thinks Hattie Is his daughter who ran away three months ago and asks for a description of her. He says that he saw her picture In a Grand Rapids p3per, evidently having picked up and old Issue. The local authorities are at a loss what to do In case the writer of the letter proves his parentage. It is plain that Hattie came from an ig norant household, while now she Is well looked after by a farmer's family at Nunlca. A Magnificent Gift. It is announced that while in Na ples, Chase S. Osborn ordered cast a bronze monument, "Lupo' de Roma," first modeled by Michael Angelo, and since then the symbol of Roman civil ization. It shows the mylhical wolf that suckled Romulus Remus. The monument will be of heroic size, and an exact replica of the one presented to Bucharest last year by the city of Rome. Mr. .Osborn will present the monument to the city. So far as known this will be the only monument of the kind in America. Among his former gifts to the city are two lions secured in Switzerland. The coroner's Jury in the Newburg wreck of April 18, returned a verdict stating that P. H. yorton, who was instantly killed, came to his death through the excessive spred of the electric car. No blame is attached to the D. U. R. The trial of Charles Charlwood, charged with the killing of John Smith, of Buchanan, an April, 9, is on In the circuit court at St. Joseph. George Smith, a brother of the dead man, tes tified that Charlwood struck the fatal blow, and then dragged the body to the railroad tracks. Elmer Quillman, the 17-year-old Ca pac lad who is charged with assault ing the 4-year-old daughter of John Cobb, of Mussey township, has been apprehended and will have tO stand trisl.
