WHOLE NO. 1008 : i i i . i OUR CONGRESS MAN IS HERE Visited the Silk City on Friday Evening on His Auto Tour. WAS WELL RECEIVED Grant Morse of Portland Was With Him Reports His Fences in Seem ingly Fine Condition. Congressman (Jerritt J. Diekema, of the Fifth district made u tour of Ionia county last week, bringing up in this city about live o'clock, Friday after noon in his auto which was under the management of his son, who has devel oiied into a lirst class chaufeur. Accompanying the congressman and his son was the old warhorse, Hon. Grant Morse of Portland who kindly volunteered to assist Mr. Diekema in the work of repairing any broken fences which might be found along the high way. In the evening a most pleasant and enjoyable reception was held on the balcony of the Hotel Belding at which our citizens were given an opportunity to meet the congressman and also Mr. Morse, formerly Stale Came Warden of Michigan. Mr. Diekema says that all through Ionia county the reception tendered him was of a most kindly nature and he is well pleased with the outlook in this section of the district. A pleasant surprise was handed the congressman when Frederick Andrews Hush, the Banner Poet, handed him the following verses arranged for the occasion. They were published in the (J rand Rapids Herald on Monthly. Postmaster George NW Moullon add ed much to the pleasure of the occasion by serving a pail of most delicious lemon ade, which was particularly ac ceptable, owing to the extreme heat of the evening. AX ODKTO DIKKKMA The Ides of old Novemlier are headed here again, When public otlice seekers must stand an awful strain. When all the many fences a scattered here and there Must be looked after closely and with the greatest care. And the man who runs for congress no matter w hat his fame J las to get out and hustle that he may save his name. Hut in the old Fifth district there's just one thing to say The people can't forget their friend the gallant Diekema. ; Deacon Kills isn't in it in the district here and there For Diekema is the people's choice for he is on the square And the members down at Washington all want him back again For losing such a man as "Diek" would surely cause them pain. They want to make him speaker and I believe they can For where in all the country is there a better man, His voice is tuned to silver, his oratory great And everybody calls him an honor to the state. So here's to G. J. Diekema, the hero of the hour, That all this part of Michigan would like to keep in iowcr. We'll yank our coats together in the old familiar way And work and shout and hustle for G. J. Diekema, And everybody says amen. REMARKABLE RECORD Prosecuting Attorney Sheldon Makes Fine Report Prosecuting Attorney Sheldon has just completed his semi-annual report to the attorney general and at the same time he has compiled ligures showing the record of the work done by his of- fice since the beginning of his duties th ree and one half years ago. The re- jort shows a remarkable record of ef- ticiencv in the prosecution 01 tne county's criminal business and also well illustrates the careful methods of look ing up eidence that have Uen pursued bv the sherill'and his deputies. There have been but nine acquittals showing the thorough manner in which evidence has been looked up. Only six have been dismissed on examination. During the past year there has been loO cases prosecuted with only one ac- mittal. Mr. Sheldon, Shenli i mey IN TROUBLE AGAIN HHP Bailey, Who Loves not Wisely Arrested on Serious Charge Floyd Bailey, who has gained more than his share of notability in this city and vicinity, has again landed in the toils and as a result of his last escapade will probably find a long term in prison awaiting him. The particulars as near as we can gain them are as follows: Uailey has been working on a farm south of Ionia for some little time past and during the absence of the men folks from the house on Friday last made a criminal assault on the wife of the man for whom he is working. Fortunately for her help was at hand and her screams brought assistance before he had ac complished his vile attempt. Strange to say the eople who caught him, let him go and he came to Ionia Saturday, leaving for this city the same evening. Ionia ollicers were noinieti of the attack and came to Belding Mon day where they soon rounded him up and took him back to jail at Ionia, where lie will be examined in the jus tice court. His iirst escapade was an attempt to kill himself with paris green lecause the girl he loved failed to rociproeate, later he was in trouble over a local oj lion violation, and was fined $2. by Justice Lapham. When next heard of he was in the jail at Grand Rapids on another love aflair, and was examined as to his sanity, liecause he made love to a female prisoner in the jail where he was conlined. If the case is as re portcd this will be his last escapade for some lime to come. It is thought the unfortunate young man is mentally unbalanced and if so will probably be siMit to an asylum.
