It is said the tide of public sentiment

in New York against the use of the

horse in the city streets is rising. A

few years ago no other motive power

was used. Now the horse is regarded as

a nuisance. The forces which have

been potent toward relegating the

horse to tne dump of the has beens are

the bicycle, the electric and cable cars,

the automobile and the auto car. Then

the offensiveness of horse emanations

on city pavements is greatly increased

and so public sentiment demands the

elimination of the hoire from the

principal city thuronghfares. Snch is

the progress of civilization.

There appears to be no progress in

the negotiations for a settlement of the

Alaska boundary dispute. Amabssa-

dor Choate and Lord Salisbury appear

no nearer an agreement on a mudus

vivendi than at the beginning of their

discussions. Indications are that the

joint high commission for the settle-

ment of all questions between Canada

and the United States will not;again

meet. The dispute over the Alaskan

boundary was what brought all the

work of the commission to naught be-

fore the adjournment was taken.

Since then Amabssador Choate and

Premier Salisbury have tried their

hands at a solution but with no better

success. There would probably be

little difficulty but for the pertinacity

of Canada.

Since the return of Dreyfus it has

become pubiic through his attorneys

that he was tortured while a prisonei

on Devils Island. The whole history

of this case is such as to cause the

blush of shame to mantle the cheek

that such things are r possible iu the

closing years of the 19th century. Ap-

parently whenever efforts were re

ne*ed in France to secure a pardon for

a new trial, the rigors of his treatment

were increased. As awful as the

thought appears, there seemed but one

design in all this—to get the prisoner

out of the way. It is to be hoped that

for hnmanitys sake and the fair name

of France tne second trial which is

soon to begin will not be the travesty

on justice that the first was, and that

it will result in his acquitai.

Some clays ago there was a meeting

}n Buffalo of the National Social and

Political Conference. During a dis-

cussion of "Expansion and Militar-

ism," by Rev. H. W. Thomas, of Chi-

cago, the name of Admiral Dewey was

mentioned but not a sylable of applause

greeted it.

The administration has determined

to fill up the quota of men for the re-

object of this, it. is said, is to escape

always follows the state organizations.

Where individual enlistments are

Hiade there is no way of keeping track

of the soldier, but a state organization

is always closely looked after by the

state authorities and friends of the

soldier, through state authority. This

manner of recruiting by individual

enlistment is contrary to the spirit of

She wishes of congress, but it enables

the administration to escape, in a con-

siderable measure, responsibility to the

people. It tends in the direction oi

militarism and away from democracy.

Unquestionably there should be a

larger regular army establishment

than exists today, but congress has the

right to dictate and its control of the

matter should not be in any way re-

laxed or over ridden.

On the anniversary of tha naval bat-

tle of Santiago the New York Sun per-

petrated the following:

"This year gives us the first oppor-

tunity to celebrate the most memorable

July our country has known since its

creation. Oil July 3, a year ago, the

Spanish fleet came out from Santiago

to accept the battle long systematically

arranged for it by Admiral Sampson,

and fought by the captains and their

men under him with exact observance

of orders and terrible precision in

gunnery. Within an hour the ontcom-

ing fleet was sunk or ashore, with the

exception of one ship, which surrender-

ed a few hours later."

With its usual studied unfairness the

Sun eliminates from the battle tne

commander who actually directed it

It will be remembered that Admiral

Sampson had no hand in the fight when

it came off. Upon whom did the com-

mand devolve in Sampson's absence?

Battle was fougnt by the captains, eh?

Was each captain in charge of an in-

dependent command? Who gave the

signals and directed the battle? Who

said in his report of the engagement,

"There is glory enough for all," after

Admiral Sampson with something of

thespirit of the Sun had claimed it all?

2 The knock-out of the McLeod law by

the supreme court left hizzexcellency

too dizzy to know where he is at and

he seems not to have recovered yet. It

has gone the way of about all the gov

ernor's reforms While there is no

occasion to waste any sympathy on

Pingree in the matter the principle

laid down by the court is one which

age should interest the people. Although

there may ben o occasion for or advant-

in municipal ownership of the street

railways of Detroit at present, the

denial of the power of the legislature to

grant snch authority has danger in it

The occasion might arise when it

would be greatly to the advantage of

the city to own the street railways.

To the layman it looks as though the

court strained the constitution might-

ily to substantiate the doctrine laid

down. Tne difference between the

right of municipal ownership of elec-

tirc lighting plants and water works,

and municipal ownership of street rail-

ways is not clear. But it appears to

be in accorded with the history that the

supreme court is making. Nothing

relative to the taxation or control ot

railways in the interest of the people is

constitutional. The state should adopt

a new constitution in which the peo-

le should have some guaranteed rights

as well as railroads.

The peace congress which has been

sitting at the Hague has, after drawing

up a convention for. arbitration,

adjourned for one week in order that

the delegates may consult their respec-

tive governments relative to the matter.

The scheme provides for a permanent

court of arbitration to which each of

the signatory powers may name four

members. Two or even more nations

may appoint the same men to sit upon

the commission. Tne term of mem-

bership is six years. The scheme pro-

vides for an office of the court at the

Hague which shall be in charge of a

secretary-general which office will

serve as theintemedieary for communi-

cations relative to meetings and also

as the custodian of archives and for the

management of all administrative


The extension of the principle of

arbitration with some sort of an obliga-

tion on the part of the signatory

powers to resort to it will probably be

about all in the way of tangible results

that toe congress will accomplish.

Even this may not become an accomp-

lished fact but the indications are

favorable. If arbitration of interna-

tional differences becomes an establish-

ed fact, it will be due in large measure

to the Unied States delegates and tnose

of Great Britain. The American dele-

gates have pushed the matter with

tact, ability and persistency. Their

efforts have been untiring. It now

looks as though their efforts are to be

crowned with success.

Vreclous Bridges.

The most valuable natural bridge In

the world is to be found at Arizona,

lying across a deep chasm 40 feet in

width. It is a petrified tree about 4

feet In diameter, and about 100 feet in

length. It is pure agate all through,

arid therefore is much more valuable

as regards material than any bridge

of marble or granite would be. But

the most expensive material of which

a bridge has ever been built is prob-

ably telegraph wire. One was built

over the Jhelum river at Kohala, in tha

Punjab, in the place of a bridge which

was swept away by the floods in 1892.

A similar bridge was constructed dur-

ing the first Soudan campaign over the

Kokora river for military purposes.

have been held back awaiting the

development of compressed air as a

experience of the New York and Chi-

cago lines indicate that this power is

feasible and economical, two lines

from this city will be at once con-

structed ; one to Jackson by way of

Dexter and Chelsea and the other to

Detroit through Superior and Ply-

He Passed Away Saturday Night at

the Age of 87 Years.

KJV. John Bradshaw, of S. Division

st,. died Saturday eveniug about 6

o'clock of gastric atrophy. He had at-

tained the age of 87 years and had

spent his long life usefully to his fel-

low men. He spent his early life in

St. Lawrence county, New York, fitted

for college at Potsdam academy, grad-

uated from Middlebury, (Vt.,) college

in 1839, taught school for about 10

years in Vermont and northwestern

New York, part of the time in Ogdens-

burg. After graduating in Union Sem-

inary in the class of 1851 he entered

the ministry of the Presbyterian

church. For 13 years he was pastor of

the churches in Elizabeth and Crown

Point, New York. He was three

years engaged in the work of the Freed-

inens Union Commission with his

office in New York. During 1869 and

'70 he was pastor of the church at

Mooers, N. Y. In 1871 he went to

Chicago and for six years was pastor of

the Clinton St., Congregational church.

Later for three years he was pastor of

the Congregational church at DeKalb,

111. Removing to Minnesota in 1879

in consequence of ill health, he after-

wards resumed his ministry and for six

years waa pastor of the churches of

Glen Coe and Mazeppa, Minn. He re-

moved to Galesburg, 111. in 1887 and

from there came to this city with his

son iu 1888, where he has since re-

sided He was married in 1839 to Miss

Sarah F. Williams, daughter of Rev.

Solomon Williams, of Enosburg, Vt.,

who died in 1883. He was afterwards

married to Miss Charlotte O'Day, who

survives him.

His only surviving son is Rev. .1. W.

Bradshaw of the Congregational

church of this city.

He was a successful teacher-in his

younger years and many of his pupils

attained distinction. He was an

earnest and successful pastor. His

penmanship was remarkable, not a

trace of tremor being shown in it up to

within three months of his death. The

funeral serivces will be held from the

houseoat 4 o'clock tomorrow and the

remains will be taken to Rochester,

Minn., for interment.

His Life Was Saved.

Mr. J. E. Lilly, a prominent citi-

zen of Hannibal, Mon lately had a

wonderful deliverance from a fright-

ful deatn. In telling of it he says:

"I was taken with Typhoid Fever

that ran into Pneumonia. My lungs

became hardened and so was so weak

I couldn't even sit up in bed. Noth-

ing helped me. I expected to soon die

of consumption, when I heard of Dr.

King's New Discovery. One bottle

gave great relief. I continued to use

it, and now am well and strong. I

can't say too much in its praise."

This marvelous medicine is the surest

and quickest cure in the world for all

Throat and Lung Trouble. Regular

sizes 50 cents and §1.00. Trial bottles

free at Eberbach & Son's, Ann Arbor,

and Geo. J. Hauessle's, Manchester,

And is Now at Grace Hospital, De-

troit Suffering from Several Severe


Detroit, Mich., July 10.—(Special

to the Daily Argus).—Horace Purfield,

of Ann Arbor, was riding on a street

car last evening and got off at the

campus martius. In doing [so he

slipped in some way and fell, being

bumped by the cat and his face was

seriously injured.

Dr. Benington, of Grace hospital,

stated to the Argus reporter thac Pur-

field's eye was badly bruised and his

cheek boue is fractured. He is doing

nicely at the hospital and will be in

condition to be taken to Ann Arbor in

a few days. ^^j

Mr. Purfield left for Detroit yester-

day afternoon at 4 o'clock on business

and the report of the accident was quite

a shock to his family.

A Hartford lawyer tells of a client

In one of the adjoining towns who had

a farm to sell. He had recently sunk

a well on it, and the job cost quite a

sum; consequently when he talked of

disposing of his property, the well

caused him considerable anxiety. "How

much do you ask for the farm?" the

lawyer asked. "Wall, I'll tell yer,"

drawled the farmer, "I'll sell the place

for $700 with the well, and I'll let it

go for $600 without the well."—Phil-

An American Railroad in China.

Moneyed men from the United States

have secured a fanchise for building a

railroad from Hong Kong to Han Kow,

China, a distance of nearly 700 miles.

While railroads are necessary to a

nation's prosperity, health is still more

necessary. A sick man can't ruak

money if there are a thousand railroads.

progressive is the fact that in ever}

Who Would Like to be on the Repub

lican State Ticket Next Fall — None

Hail from Washtenaw.

The Chicago Tribune has been writ-

ing up the candidates for the republican

nominations for state office nest fall

and promises that the campaign will be

the liveliest kind of a one. It thinks

that. Justice Long will not be a candi-

date for governor, it not being likely

that he" will resign eight and a half

years on the supreme bench at a salary

of |7,000 a year for a two years' term

as governor at $4,000. Neither does

it think that Secretary of State Stearns

has been selected as the Pingree-Alger

candidate. It is not sure thing that

Gov. Pingree may not decide to reach

after a third term hiinself. Stearns,

however, would like to be governor.

It is not believed that the rival candi-

dates for senator will engage in a pre-

liminary struggle for the nomination

for governor.

It is this belief that has brought into

the field an unusually large number of

candidates for governor. Ex-Congress-

man James O'Donnell, of Jackson, who

has had a hankering for this nomina-

tion for many years, is again in the

field and will put up the best Campaign

possible. Another avowed candidate

is Roscoe D. Dix, of Berrieu Springs,

woh is now serving his second term as

Auditor-general, aud who has pre-

viously served two terms as Commis-

sioner of the state land office. Mr. Dix

has a strong following among the old

soldiers of the state, having been prom-

inent in Garnd Army circles for a num-

ber of years. Still another selt-con-

fessed candidate is Philip T. Colgrove,

of Hastings, who shares the belief that

the nomination should go to the western

section of the state, having been in the

east for the last eight years.

Railroad Commissioner Chase S.

Osborn is also mentioned, although he

may run for congress. If,|as is claim-

ed, he is to be the active manager of

Gen. Alger's senatorial campaign, he

is not likely to enter the lists fcr gov-


For secretary of state, Secretary

Stearns will be renominated if he does

not go in for governor. If he decides

to become a candidate for governor.ex—

Senator Fred M. Waruer, of Birming-

ham, will be a prominent candidate.

The office of auditor-general pays the

bfst salary in the list with the single

exception of governor. Those who havo

thus far announced tneir candidacy to

their friends are Perry F. Powers, of

Cadillac, for the last 12 years a mem-

ber of the state board of education;

Edward P. Waldrou, of St. Johns,

one ot the most prominent commercial

travelers in the state; George P. Rey-

nolds, of Saginaw, grand secretary of

the Natioual Order of Elks; ex-Circuit

Judge William R. KeudricK, of Sagi-

e Jewels of Hope."

" I had been a sufferer for more than one year

with severe depressing pains in my womb,"

says Mrs. Annie L. Mathews, a lady living at

310 Broadway, Newoort, R. I., in a thankful let-

ter to Dr. R. V. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y. "I

seemed to have no life or energy, I was always

in such misery.

" At times I suffered so much I thought that

death would be better for me. I had tried doc-

tors and different kinds of medicines but all

failed to do me any good. I commenced to take

Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and also his

' Pellets,' and had only taken one bottle when

I felt much better. When I had taken four I

felt entirely well. I continued to take it and to-

day I am in every y a well woman, and I have

found that life is worth living. To all women

who suffer wiih any womb trouble I would rec-

ommend this medicine. I thank the Lord that

such a doctor as Dr. Pierce was bora."

"Why, stupid, that is what I send

A week later Mr. Barnes was in New

Orleans, where he devoted himself to

discovering, if possible, the early his-

tories of Mr. Mitchel and the murdered

woman. Weeks passed, and he made no


One morning in the latter part of

April he was feeling somewhat de-

spondent over his ill success, when, as

he glanced listlessly through The Pica-

yune the following paragraph caught

Sis eye:

"Mr. .Barnes, the celebrated New

York detective, is iu the city and stop-

ping at the St. Charles hotel. It is be-

lieved that he is in search of a desperate

criminal, and probably the news loving

world will soou be tieated to one of the

famous detective's clever elucidations of

some mysterious crime."

This both annoyed and puzzled Mr.

Barnes. He had not told any one his

true name and could not guess how the

reporters had found.his identity. While

he was thinking of it a card was brought

to him which bore the name, "Richard


He directed that the gentleman should

be shown to his room, and soou after a

man of about 85, with dark complexion,"

black hair and keen hazel eyes, entered,

bowing politely and saying:

"This is Mr. Barnes, I believe."

"Be seated, Mr. Sef ton," said Mr.

Barnes coldly, "and then tell me why

you believe me to be Mr; Barnes, when

I registered as James Morton. "

"I do not believe you to be Mr.

Barnes,'' said the other, coolly seating

himself "I was inaccurate in using that

expression. I know that you are Mr.


"Ohl You do! And how, pray, do

you know that I am Mr. Barnes?"

"Because it is my business to know

people. I am a detective like yourself.

I have come to help you. "

"Youhave come to help me! Youare

very kind, I am sure. But since you are

BO very clever, perhaps you would not

mind telling me how you know that I

need help and in what direction."

"With pleasure. You need help be-

asuse, pardon my saying it, yon are

working on a case in which time is

precious to you, and you have already

wasted abont six weeks. I say wasted,

because you have learned nothing that

will aid you in your search."

"In my search for what?"

"Mr. Barnes, you are notovercordiaL

There should be some fraternal courtesy

between us. I have come to you as a

friend, honestly wishing to aid you. I

have known that you were in the city

for some time. I have heard of you, of

course. Who in our business has not?

Therefore I have spent a great deal of

spare time watching you. 1 did so sim-

ply to notice and perhaps to learu some-

thing from your methods. In this way I

became acquainted with the fact, first,

that you are interested in the name

Mitchel, and, secondly, in the name Le-

roy, I have simply put the two together

and jumped to the conclusion that you

are trying to learn something about Le-

roy Mitchel. Am I right?"

"Before I reply to you, Mr. Sef ton, I

must have more assurance of your good

will and responsibility. How do I know

that you are a detective at all?"

"Quite right! Here is my badge. I

am in the department here. "

"Very well so far, but now how can

you prove that you have any good reason

for assisting me?"

"You are a hard man to help, I de-

clare. Why, what object but a friendly

one can I have?"

"I am not prepared to answer that at

present. Perhaps I shall be able to do so


"Oh, very well! You can look me np

all yon want to. I can stand it, I assure

yon. But, really, I did want to help,

though of course I have no right to in-

trude. As you say you do not need me,

why I"—

"I did not say that I would not ac-

cept your aid. You must not think me

ungracious. I am simply a detective,

and careful from habit. I certainly

should not speak confidentially to a man

Wahr & Miller have had a busy day

today. Their advertisement in the Ar-

gus announcing that they would today

give away to each and every little girl

who would come to the store with

their dolls a beautiful pair of fine vici

kid slippers foifthe dolly, brought many

customers who do not often visit them.

The delight pictured on the faces of

the little tots as they came in with

dolly dressed in her best, and saw for

the first the half dozen boxes filled

with elegant slippers, was a study.

It is altogether safe to say that they

were never happier in their lives than

when fitting dolly with the finest foot

gear she ever wore. These enterprising

shoe men have already at present writ-

ing fitted 611 pairs of feet with new

slippers and before the day closes they

will undoubtedly have shod more feet

than during any previous day in their

For Whom No Place Could be Found

in the Pontiac Asylum—The Project

for a County Asylum Talked Of.

Judge Newkirk, who has been dili-

gently endeavoring to find a place for

the insanej patients of this county,

who are awaiting a place in tbe asy-

lums, has just received word that an

arrangement had been made by which

the five lady insane patients in this

county who are yet awaiting rooms in

the asylums, would be taken at the

Kalamazoo asylum. No provision has

as yet been made for the male patients

awaitingjplaces. The communication

of Judge Newkirk in the Argus advo-

cating the building of an addition to

the county house so that insane patients

coald be cared for there, their treat-

ment being put in charge of the noi-

verity doctors has met with wide-

spread comment and favorable com-

ment too. It would fix it so that the

unfortunate insane would not be com-

pelled to consort with thieves and

criminals at the county jail and so that

respectable iamillies would not have

tbe disgrace of having an unfortunate

member of their family in jail. As

far as the university physicians are

concerned, it would increase the effii-

ency of their instruction on the sub-

ject of insanity and every physician is

called upon to deal with this subject in

some form. The county now has to

pay |3 a week for patients committed

to the asylums. The asylums are of

course opposed to the county system of

caring for the insane, notwithstanding

their crowded condition, evidently

fearing that the crowded condition

which they now seem to want would

not continue. Reference to Judge

Newkirk's letter was made in various

parers about the state and this may

have had something to do with the ar-

rangement to take the five lady

patients at Kalauiazoo
