The Schaffer property near the western brewery has been purchased by Mack & Schmid for $1,200. From the present outlook there will be more building in Ann Arbor this season by far, than last season.

Ufe. Mayor Kapp has in his possession a book of about 3,000 pages containing reports of the various offices and departments of the city of Philadelphia, and 'presented by the city of Philadelphia to the city of Ann Arbor." The peculiarities of "srnne ]eople we meet" are astonishing. There are those who are constantly growling if they are nt noticed by the newípapen, and then again there are tliofe who will storm at you if they are noticed. So betwixt the two what's a poor local editor "gwin fur" todo? Wirt Newkirk, graduate ot the law dep't former resident of Dexter, hut who has been a resident of Willamsburg, Ky., for past two yeara, publishing a paper there, was burned out last week Wednesday, saving only two presses out of the en tire outfit. By urgent request of the citizena of the place he will at once resume business. Mr. Newkirk is also a son-in-law of Tho?. Birkltt, of Dover. The Germans are anxious that Ann Arbor should have a Germán mayor the coming year, because of the great sangerfest to be held here next August. Thto affair is substantially a Germán one.and tliey Hay it would be pleasant to have a man in the mayor's chulr who could jreet the Germán multitudes who will be here, in their own tongue. WhetUer tliis will be pressed upon the parties or not is a quetion.

C. B. H. tracks, at Detroit street, and the various improvements proposed by the M. C. R. K. at this point. As our citizens are uil cupable of judging for themselves, in this matter, it is useless for the newspapers to attempt a discussion. Among the democratie candidates for justice-of the peace, besides P. McKernan who seems to have the lead, there have been mentioned J. S Henderson, Martin Clark and Eugene Onerlin. Only two republlcan8 so far have been spoken of Joel W. Hamilton and J. W. Bennett If all tbe vacancles are filled there will be three candidates this spring on each tick et.

It Is understood that a Toledo flnn has rentec! the store of Frank Hangsterfer fonnerly occupied by the auction busiuess, for a period of two years, and will open a stock of groceries therein.

We have recently received a card and pamphlet fiom Lincoln, Kansas, announcing that the firm of Waterman Bros. & Adams have opened a real estáte exchange. This flrm includes the names of N. R. and E. D. Waterman, who are wcll known to our citizens as upright, pusliing young men, and we have not the faintest doubt as to their success. If Dr. Kapp is a democratie mayor, we shall have to do justice by him and say that lie has been a faithful one. He has not missed u regular meeting of the coun cill the past year, and only one special, and that an unimportant one. He has been very prompt in signlng the warrantst often neglecting private business therefor, and has been thoroughly alive to the city's best interests. We are credibly iuformed that lie is not a candidato for reelection, but considers his cup of glory full tn thp hrim. At the debate before the G. A. H. post last Friday night, on the conduct of McClellan, Capt. Manly opened the discussion, followed by Ciipt. Campbell. Lieiit. J. II. Stark's argumenta were so fine and plausible that the boys gave him a bearty applause. The afflrmative of the case won the day. Aa the Chelsea boy deated this same question recently with ie Lima, and won the day for the administratlon, it might be well for them to ïeet our boys and convince them of their iror in deciding the other way.

Life is too precious to continue this M, In the circuit conrt but few cases have been disposed of. Testimony was teken in he divorce sui. of Mary A. Weisenger va. Jacob F. Weiseiifter. Ia the case of the People vs. Herman Knapp, the defendant plead guilty to the charge of an attempt to steal from a store, and was sentenced to the house of correction until 891. There is now on trial the case of George Kinckerbocker ts. Thomas F Leonard. Leonard is defendant sltnply because he was the officer servlng the papers. The real defendant being Peter Polson and seyeral creditors in the Goodale estáte, and it is being sharply contened. Thos. Holmes wa admitted to citizenship yesterday, and J. Adam Klein, Saline, Geo. Schram, York, Wm. E Sanderson, Augusta, were each flned one day's pav, $2.00, for being tardy, and Eugene B. 'Abel, $1.25 for the same offeuse. Complaints are coming in thick of tbe utterly lawless manner In which Uie telegraph poles have been put up on the south Ypsilanti road by the last telegraph company going through. Shade tree on the blghwty tliat havo been set out and carefully nurtured for years by farmers have been cut to pieces and ruined. Hundreds of dollars worth of them have been so disfigured that they are practically worthless. This is an outrage that should uo be ovcrlooked. As no right of way ha been obtaioed for the line, we understand there can be no possible right fo any company to set a pole or strlng a wlre. One of the gentlemen whose tree have been nuiUlated is pretty angry abou it, and is working to get the farmer along the line to combine to see what cal be done about it. He doesn't propose to prosecute the telegraph company but b does propose to make It so hot for them that they wül wlsh they had used common decency, and not destroyed othe neople's property. He thinks thmgs ca be so tixed that the telegraph compan may attempt to prosecute the farmers when they wlll bc fightlng on tbeir ow
