The greenbackers and their aillos have put up a boy, they claim. In aftairs of state it requires a man. And a tjood man too, such a man as the repablteang will place before the people of' the state tday for their suffrages. Polltlcal conventlons may wrangle.and polltlolans muy Hinirl. but for all wool harmouy and A 1 rauslc t great Saengerfust at Aun Arbor Is the model to follow. That's the k lnd ofcouventlon that overybody pralses. When shall we have one In Lauslng?- State Itepubllcan. In the language of the old song : " Never, no, never." Don Dickinson replies to tho statement of the Evening News that "the democratie managers have done all in their power to loso the state," with a subscription of $2,500! "Money talks," says Don. Boodie, boodle, boodle is the cry. "We are going to buy up the state." The Lansiug Repablksan is right in its assertion that Johnie Enright never would have thrown the chairnianship of the state committee overboard had he any idea that the campaign would have been successful.

The relationship existing between Henry Irving, the English actor, and Ellen Terry, his female eompanion, Is a stench in the nostrils of decent people.

Duncan, of South Lyon, saya, that if any of the f'urmers of the state want any of the "Red Lion," or "Lancaster" wheat, he will furnish 1,200 bushcls for $1 per bushel.
