Detroit and Chicago did not know which was the proudest yesterday. One had the president and the other the base-ball pennant. Guess honors were easy. Hon. John B. Finch, of Nebraska, the celebrated temperance advocate, died in Boston on Tuesday. He was taken ill on the train that brought him from Lynn, Mass., where he had delivered an address the evening before. He was a very logical and convincing speaker, and one of the ablest champions of the temperance cause. He will be greatly missed.especiallv by the prohibition party, of which he was an ac. knowledged leader. Adrián Press: Already the democrat managers of the 2nd congressional district have been casting about for a victim for the next canvass. Lieut. Salsbury, of this city, who bore the banner last time, very promptly gave notiee that he would have no more of it; Regent Whitman, of Ypsilanti, said the election of either a Monroe or Washtenaw man was impossible, with the bitter feeling existing between the counties, and so the choice has as good as fallen on Hon. Chauneey F. Cook, of Hillsdale. Mr. Cook is an exceedingly popular youngman, altogether too good a man to be sacrificed at this time, and when the nominating convention meets it may have to look farther. Great changes are Hable to occur in ten or eleven months.
