State st., ind Henry Pottinger, recentJy ot the uaval reserves, besides several parties froiu Dowagiac who will joiu tbe Ann Arbor aud Dowagiac colouy now there. Mr. VVallace who carnes with mm some fine specimens of Klondike gold is very sanguiue of the tntare iu that country. He is still hopefull of coming out all right in nis efforts to get the right of the stockholders iu the Vrooman cornpany established. At a recent stockholders meeting in Chicago he represented ex-Conirnissioner ot Peusions iviurpny and inany others and made things lively for Vroomnn, the slick Chicago minister -who orgamzed the coinpany. As an instance of Vroom an's bleeding the company in addition to what was fally detailed in the Argos Jast Jauuary, Mr. Wallace says that Vrooman pnrchased the Flying Dntchmau for $5,000 of which $1,000 vs-as cash. The $1,000 nsed was the compauy's mouey, but the title was taken in his own name. He then sold the boat to the company for $22,000. It has siuce been sold for 83.300. Mr. and Mis. Dwight Ilunt, of N. State street, expects to leave for the Klondike about May 1. Mis. Ilunt says it is not a suelden resolve as they have talked of going for the past ye'ar. Mis. Ilunt is astockholder in the comany. fcJhe says she expects she will be put at work, probably cooking. She looks forward to the trip with no apprehension.' She is a bright, clieerful, happy, stout tooking woman, who will without questiou be a welcome addition to the far away camp. She can well take care of herself as she is an expert revolver shot, planting on a trial seven off-hand shots into a target of a disk of paper the size of a quarter of a dollar. Mr. Hunt is well used to pioneer life having settled in the ÜWthern part of Dakota at an early riay. J3otu husband and wife hope that hustle and work wilt teil and that they will make the strike of their life.
