The trouble which arose several times
in confirming a city marshal after the ap
pointment by the mayor, was settled, as
will be seen by the council proceedings
of last night, by the confirmation of Mr.
(.?or-;e Poisall. The vote stood five to
three in his favor.
An enthusiastic republican revival
was held at Wabash last Saturday night.
A special train was run from Weeping
Water with about two hundred and fifty
passengers. Elmwood, South Bend and
Ashland were represented in grand style,
and in all there were four hundred live
republicans who attended the meeting.
That leaves seven men and two biys
away back in the shade, it seems to us.
The great base ball event which has
been before the people verbally and in
the papers for the past mouth, takes
place this afternoon. The game will not
be called till 4 o'clock, so all have time
to close up their business and attend the
circus. Smith, the pitcher for the heavy
nine, has worked his arm as powerful as
a blacksmith's, and will go into the field
this afternoon prepared for victory,
lie will pitch a ball which he claims will
dodge the bat. It is supposed that hot
disputes will arise, and the lean nine
would, no doubt, suffer considerable in
consequence, so, for their protection, the
umpire has decided to chain a couple of
bull dogs to a stake as a warning and
strap himself to two of the largest revol
vers he can secure in the city. With
such dangerous looking spectacles before
the experts, peace will surely reign su
preme. A full report of the game and a
complete score will appear tomorrow.
Two to one is being bet on the fat club at
present, and in some places bets are not
obtainable against the heavy club.
Mr. Inhelder. of Cedar Creek, was
in the city yasterday, and informed us of
the burglary which occurred at that place
yesterday morning, between the hours of
three and four o'clock. Two men broke
in the general store belonging to Mr.
Geo. E. S;iyle, one of them entering
through the transom over the front door
and admitting the other fellow by iin
biring the door from the inside. Mrs.
Saylcs heard the man drop the bar and
informed her husband that some one was
in the store, lie secured a shot gun and
started down stairs to the store, but as
they heard him coming they took to their
heels and fled. He fired several shots
after them and it is not known whether
lie hit them or not. Mr. Inhelder, who
lives a short distance away, heard the
shooting and put in appearance just as
one of tho men was making his escape,
and he says if he had been armed the
man never would hae got away. Mr.
Sayles followed the burglars from the
Btorp. and aa he fired after them when
they were running they returned the fire.
A thev succeeded in reaching the woods
their pursuers gave them up for the time.

The following resolutions were unani
mously adopted by the prohibition con
vention convened at Weeping Water
1st. Itesolced that we recognize our
rights as citizens of the United States to
work up independent party interests and
are not to be held, responsible, for the
defeat or victory of either party more
than citizens of any other party.
2nd. Resolced that we purpose the
defeat not of one, but of both the old
parties, and that we hold ourselves asun
der mortgage to neither of the old parties
to be responsible for their promises or the
carrying out of their slight temperance
In an article which appeared in the
Journal they succeeded, as usual, before
finishing the article in reference to kid
napping, to misrepresent the city officials
in the matter. Mr. Stultz had seen Sher
iff Eikenbary early in the morning and
ascertained from him what course he
should pursue to secure his boy. Mr.
Eikenbary spent the whole forenoon,
rendering his services gratis to find out
what road the emigrants had taken. He
hitched up his horse and accompanied
that gentleman wherever he thought
there would be any clu to the lo6t boy,
aud after learning the road they had
taken, told that gentleman to follow
them and he would overtake them some
where near Lousisville. He did so and
found them as stated yesterdey. He
requested Mr. Eikenbary to accompany
him, but as the boy had gone of hi own
accord, he informed Mr. Stultz that the
law would not require him to do so, and
even if he did, he could not do more
than anyone elsa and he would be work
ing on his own responsibility. As he
had business at home which hecould not
leaye, he would have gone probably, but
as it was he could not.
A juvenile base ball team here which
had made a contract with a Weepiug Wat
er team, to play here lust Saturday, were
disappointed by that club as they did
not put in appearance. The home dub
was invited to Weeping Water yes
terday, and they, accepting the invita
tion, did not suppose they would be oblig
ed to play with married boys and men
who were old enough to grow whiskers.
We could not learn the score, but we did
hear that the boys from here were badly
beaten. If the men of that burg wish to
meet nine men we keep here, we will turn
them ioosc. and there are people in the
city who think they would have a soft
bet if they could bet five to one that
none of the Weeping Water men could
shake hands with the first baseman of our
team by making a base hit.
