Did tbc pcople of Michigan see fit to pay thcir "cliief servant," the governor, a decent salary, tliere are many men who could ifford to take the position wlo would be an lionor to the state, as well as being lionored by it, and it would not be neces?ary to hunt up somc one with a "barrel." Livingston county luis a man witliin her borders who could be the next governor ot Michigan, had he a " bar'l " ot suffleient si.e and depth. He b a mm of uncommon good eense, a farmer who is successtul In his calling, a sound republican, and one who would wear the honor and dignity of the gubernatorlal chair with becoming grace. His name is Win. Ball. of Hamburg, but he can not be our governor because the people of the great state of Michigan are too niggardly to pay their governor a decent salaiy. ïlie Michigan Club, of Detroit, which is composed of republicana of the state, is inert ain ïapidly andalready numbers a large proportiou of the active workers la the party. It is not an exclusive coterie of wealthy politlcians, for any republican voter may join it, and its purpose is to disciiss and edúcate good methods of gove''nment, to help in party organization and to dissemiuate republican principies. On the 22d of this month is a commemorative banquet nt which will be present a distinguished number of eminent statesmen, such as Senators Sbennan, Palmer, Conger, Ingalls, Hawley and many otliera. It will be a fine opportunity to hear these leaders discuss the questions of the day. A person who caunot be satlsfled with the quuntity and quallty of reading matter given by the Detroit Tribune each dny for two cent?, muet be very hard to please. 1
