The surfaee oif AYashienaw eouïity g. o. p. politics lias been as smooth as Fred WeínJberg's skating vink during the past week. Bui just vait until warm weather aruiwes. Justin Sturgls, of Ludington, la.unehed a "inarked copy" newspapeT 'boom for the Reüblitfan ■namination for secretary of state last week. Ferry Powers is chaperone for the boomlet. Ey the way, we -are still waüting for the Republican n&wspaipers and jioliticians- of Wlashtema-w couaty t-o define thtíir respeèfeive positions 'wi'th respect to the "federal" and state wings of their political family.
