In looking over the list of offleera one might cnsily be h-cl into the error of thinking the organlzntlon nitonamed. Tliey might eonsider '; univeisity league" more approprinte as a title. The statement was made Unit the organizatlon was in no sense a temperauce organizatiéD, and thil two or threeof the Ann Arbor saloon keepers had expressed a desire to join the league. The constitution say the otlieers " shall be elected by ballot," bot tliey were not. Was the etection legal ? Marshall Statesman : "Ann Arbor citizens are Indignan at the conduct of Sopt. Corbet in removlngMHo Pulcipher, who bas managet! their Western Union telegraph ollice satisfactirily for seventeeó years. The charge agalnat hlm was slmply that he had DOtifled peopk of the change in office hours instead of letting them ascertain for themselves. A petition will be sent to headqnarters at Kew York deinaiuling Pulcipher's rc-instatement. Mr. Puldpher married a former Marahall foung lady, MissDrakc, aniece of Mr. Benjamin Drake, and bas msny frtends here who will learn of his renioval, wilhout caute, with regret." In dectJTng upon j-our vote for prosecuting attorney would it not be well to remember tliat f the repulican candidate is elected be will keep the office open at the county seat all the time? You will be obliged to go away to one Blde of tlie county to consult the peopte'l attorney should he not be eleetol.
