Albrecht Gwinner, of Detroit street, died Wednesday evening. He was born in Wurtemberg, Germany, in 1837 and emmigrated with his parents to this country, settling in Ann Arbor in 1854. He was a rausician in the First Michigan Infantry during the war. He was a member of the G. A. R. post and the A. O. U. W. He was married in 1866 and leaves a wife and five children. He numbered a large circle of friends. This is the way the Adrián Press looks at it: "The Argus and Courer made a combination bid for the city printing at about the cost of composition. The council is meetang about once a week, and has more rmsiness than the legislature, and the aroprietors of the combine are already getting their abdominal reservations so crowded, that they can only groan. In the meantime they reflect that there are neither dollars nor sense in the situation." There were 602 votes cast at the special election in Ypsilanti, to decide about bonding the city for $20.000 for bonuses to manufactories, of which 403 were cast for the $20.000, and 199 against. The proposition carried every ward in the city excepting the fourth. The factories which have gone a long ways towards building up Ypsilanti have been obtained without bonuses. If those who have opposed further bond of the city, care to resort to legal proceedings they could probably defeat the issuing of bonds. Marcus T. Woodruff has succeeded his father, Charles Woodruff, in the management of the Ypsilanti Sentinel. The Sentinel is one of our oldest contemporaries and is an excellent paper. lts readers are to be congratulated on the fact that although Mr. Charles Woodruff is no longer publisher, he will continue writing editorials, for, in the use o trenchant English, he has no superior in the state. The new publisher has push and vim and will undoubtedly make the paper as good locally as it has been editorially.
