Major Juhn P. Kirk, of the 31st Michigan who is aleo prosecuting attorney of Washtenaw county wiJl be home next Tbnrsday to take oare of his campaign for re-eletoion and to resume the duties of his office whiob during his enforced absence with his regiment have been ably peforrnerl by Arthur Brown and Jndge Babbitt. With the evident intention of hurting Major Kirk's candidacy, a story to the effect that be does not intenrt to resign his commission has been indostriously ciroulated by the opposition. It is absolntely false. When the country called upon its pati'iotio sons for defender√° Mr. Kirk hastened to tbe front, saerifjciug bis business to do eo. Now that all need for flghtiDg men is past, and those who rernain in tbe servioe will only be required to do polioe duty and he can honorably resiga bis oommission, he will do so aud return to the duties of civil life from whioh be cannot well be spared. Major Kirk did uot enter the army from choios but from a souroe of duty. Duty no longer demauds bis preserioe at the front and he will return to be re-elected proseouting attorney by a inajority whioh will put his magnificent run of two years ago in tbe shade.
