Money for cyclone victima, raised in Wasbtenaw county will be turued over to Gov. Rich to bs handled as be thinks best. With this discretion given the governor, the republican state central committee is wiuking at him and pointing to its treasury. It ia alleged that Ross, the newly appointed i-treet conimissioner at the Washtenaw capĂ­tol, has never taken out naturalization papers. Same man who, it is claimed wanted teainsters to run their horses up a steep hill. Let him be first Christianized and natnralized afterward. The Democrat has been wrongly informed, Mr. Ross never required it of teamsters to run their horses np a steep hill. What he did reqnire, however, was a fair day's work for a fair day's pay, both by men and horses. For that reason he was criticised and objected to by those of whom hfi required such an absolutely fair coudition of thinga. A man who had buried five wives, begged oharity at the Washtenaw Times office and all he gofc was "a cool reception." The editor says: "Any man with a record like that should be sent to jail." The editor will have nobody but himself to blame if bis inhumanity drives that man to a sixth rnnrriage. In a certain grave yard are seven mounds in a row. Sis contain the wives of John Smith and the seventh John Smith himself; and on bis tombstone runs the epitaph : "At rest at last!"
