Last Sunday Messrs. John Schumacher and M. F. Guinon, of Ann Arbor, addressed the meeting and brought encourasring word from our neighboring city. Ilaving won their point in the courts they now have aceess to the books of the county treasurer, and Mr. Gulnon has put in some good work copying the names of all the saloon keepers in the county and their bondsmen. He has also securêd the ainount each bondsman is assessed on the tax roll. Some of the bondsmen have slgned three or four bonds and aecording to the law have to niake a sworn statement that they are worth $3,000 over all exemptions, which would niake the amouet $4.500 for each bond siqned. The assessment roll does not tálly, in many cases, with the sworn statements, showing official negligence it not criminality. The bondsmen of psiluiti appear to bc mostly men of means, but whoever drew up the bonds took pains to ecratch out the clause prohibiting the sale to habitual druukards and those in the habit of gettlngdrunk.
