It was not a vcry exciting election day last Monday. Co. A has an invitation to go to Toledo the 4th of July. Prof. W. II. Payne has been out of town this week. The regular monthly ingpection and hop of Co. A. occurs next Monday evening. A confectionary store is to be started b3' Win. Hangsterfer where Henion's hat and cap store now is. A yoiing art gallery is on exhibition in the windows of Joe T. Jacobs. It con' sists of a series of coraical pictures. Aceording to the usual custotn the band was out Monday night after the election to gerenaüe tlie fortúnate offlce-seekers. The date of the concert of the Princeton Glee Club has been changed from Tuesday, the 17th, to Wednesday, the I8th. The City band was out early Monday morning and went to Dundee to assist at the represen tation of "Hobert Eramet '' that evening. The contract for the uew Sixth w;ird school house has been let to Lucas & Tesmer for $10,988. It will be on East University Avenue. Gustave Schlotterbeck and Frank Beernan will reraain on the High School Index board as chairman and business manger respectively. As usual in the spring the river needs damming again, because the heavy ice took away a part of the old dam. It is now being built up solid. If you want a good laugh go to see "Woodcocks Little Game" and "lei l'on Parle Francais " next Wednesday evening. Seats reserved Saturday morning at Bliss'. It has been a good week for entertainments. Sunday night, Finch lectured ; Tuesday night, Gough told storie; on Wednesday night, "Robert Emmet"was enacted, to-night Thomas W. Keene's "Richard III." and the Baptist organ concert are to be siven. The candidates for City Marshal are looming up. So far we have heard mentioned E. B. Gidley, Henry Richards, John Nowland and Thomas Clarkons. The Common Council, which meets Monday night, is a tie politically, and it is hard to say who has the in3ide track for that responsible position. A correspondent from Dundee, Tuesday morning writes : " 'Robert Emmet' was produced here last eveningunder the management of the Ann ArborCity Band and was a most pleasing entertainment, and especially J. E. Harkins and Mies Nellie Hoban, in their Irish caricatures were simply immense. We wish the boys to come again." The bi clubs of Chicago and the western part of Michigan will rendezvous at Ann Arbor June 30, and wheel to Detroit on the following Sunday. The next day the entire party, increased by the clubs of the eastern part of the State, will cross Into Canada and ride to Niaeara Falls and Ruffulo. The return will be by way of Cleveland. The wheelman expect to do the entire distance In twelve days.- American Sports. The Maclean-News trial is in progress and the Dr. produces lots of witnesses who ncver saw anything improper betweon the Parties. Therc was once a man on trial for thef t, and two credible witnesses swore to seeing him cominit the crime, but his tawyer produced men by the score who said they didn't see him do it, and the court said the weight of evidence was In his favor, and discharged him. Is that the Way the Dr. means to get out.-Ypsilanti Sentinel. From Rev. William Frackelton, a gradúate of the University in 1867, now living ¦' Tullamore, Ireland, we have received copy of The Freeman's Journal a Paper which probably has the largest circulaüon and the greatest influence of any of he Irish papers. By lts decided coure T SrgUefen5efthe I"'" cause it !'¦ attracted great attentie in England deve ninParliameut. It is nowin its iï„ IMl and S remarkle for its ámense 81ze, each of it9 ei ,,t ZT Inches 8quare a"d 'he enfeetï 6n Spread 0Ul would be four coml e SomethI"L remarkable for a ouimon press. . Prof. C. H. Stowell has appeared in the ! class-room and was heartily received by : the students. He is not 3'et able to leci ture but he has conducted an examina¦ tion. The funeral services of the late Oliver IC Martin werelargely atteDded Sunday afternoon by friends and the Masons. Mr. Martin was City Marshal in 1865, and in I 18GG-G7 was Mayor. He introduced the first hearee in the city, and the first child bnried with ït was his own. Gough, the inimitable, agaln delighted an Ann Arbor audience Tuesday evenlng, when he gave some of his own experiences on the stage. Although past 65 years of age, he still retains much of his oldtinie vigor and flre, and as formerly, he kept his audience alternating between laughter and tears. However it seeuied as though he did not indulge in pathos as tntich as he used to do. His stories are as rich, as varied, as pointed in application as ever, and his control over all those who heard him is as complete as in the days of yore. The Irish drama, '-Robert Eminet," was given at the opera house, Wednesday nlght, by home talent, to a crowded house, which was well pleased with the performance. The rollicking Irish boy, always ready for a bit o' fun, was adinirably portrayed of Mr. Harkins, and he was capitally seconded by the piquant Miss Nellie Hoban, who threw enough spirit into the character of Nora to make it a very natural one. Mr. and Mrs. Emmet, the other prominent characters, were admirably well played by Mr. and Mrs. Granger. We were pleased to see the boys make a success of it. J. M. Swift & Co are preparing to make extensive changes in their flourinff milis in the near future. The time-honored milistones will be entirely discarded and a " Complete Roller System " substituted. At the same time the capacity of the mili will be nearly, or quite, doubled, thus enabüng them to turn out from 250 to 300 barrels per day. The contract has been let to the " Lease Manufacturing Co." of Columbus, Ohio, and calis for a strictly first class mili. The work of remodeling is to commence in two or three weeks, and it Is expected that operations on the new system will commence some time in July. The meetings of the sixth anniversay of the Reform Club were well attended Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon and evening. Mr. Finch appeared again and gave some of his forcible temperance speeches. We were glad to see that he tacitly acknowledged the force of ourcriticism on his former speech in University Hall, by this time sticking to his subject and not running off into mere tirades against the party, which, although outside the prohlbition party, is nearest to it of any of the parties, in regard to the great principie which actuates it. Tliose deniagogical argumenta were not only useless but actually harmful to the cause we are convinced he loves. Mr. Finch is surely a powerful speaker, and it may be said of him that while he lacks the tact in storytelling that Gough has so pre-eminently, he naturally eicels the latter in logic and argument. He never will become a Gough in holding an audience, but a little of the "old man's " mantle has fallen upon him.
