May the lord note the title and forgive us for Ever mentioning his holy name in connection with such remnants of humanity. Poor Mac we have Long waited and watched his lofty ? aspirations any one in the least acquainted with the blankness of the poor victim As he May properly be styled cannot but agree with us in our estimation of what a penchant for Ollice will cause one of his calibre to do. Or. Mcclintock As is Well known by residents of the third Ward where he lives has since his removal to Ashland been a standing candidate for Alderman or supervisor but has always failed most Ignominy Ottly to capture the caucuses. Finally last Spring in his desperation to be recognized by his Republican party or tiny other party for that matter he prepared nomination papers which by our state Laws Are required to be signed by at least fifteen voters from that certain constituency a practice that is usually resorted to Only when one receives the cold shoulder of his party and this great chairman referred to above after canvassing the four Hundred and fifty voters of his Ward failed to even get the minimum la teen signatures to his Humble paper.

More Power to you curio Bell it is a pleasure to know that Somo men have the courage of their convictions. The log cubic Range Bandit. Another chapter is now to be chronicled in Tho career of Tho Lone Highway Man and convicted murderer Raimund Holzhay now serving a life sentence in Stato prison. Yesterday afternoon in company with a convict named Helper and under Strong guard he left for for criminal insane at Ionia. So much has been published about Holzhay and so thoroughly Havo Tho different phases of his criminal career been placed before Tho Public by the press All Over the country that Only i Brief reference need be made now to establish the thread of Tho narrative Holzhay came from Wisconsin where to had committed several minor robberies to the go Gebic Range in this Stato about 18s9. Hero he continued his Lawless deeds until Tho Climax was reached. To held up Tho stage travelling from go Gebic. Shots were exchanged and a merchant from Illinois was killed. Holzhay escaped into the Woods and a Short time after was Cap tured at Republic. He was tried adjudged guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment in Tho Branch Stato prison Here. His reputation was such that the prison Oll Licals looked upon him As a particularly dangerous Man an opinion he soon amply justified. One Day in the fore part of 1890 to managed to got po3sossion of a knife from the Sioe factory. With this he attacked a guard in the prison corridor and threatened to kill him if he was not at onco liberated. Tho details of that exciting episode in Tho history of our local prison Aro doubtless fresh in the minds of All who read the account at that time. How Holzhay sat on a Bench with his left Arm around Tho guard s neck and brandishing the knife in his right. How Warden Tompkins watched him from the adjoining compartment awaiting a Chance to Wing him with a Rifle shot or kill him if he went too. Far with Tho guard and How in. An unguarded moment Holzhay dropped his right hand still holding the knife on his leg Only to have every linger shot off with a Bullet from the Warden s gun this Sot Ted the matter for that time and reduced Holzhay s ability to harm by one hand. The scone had lasted two hours and the Warden s shot was fired from a Point thirty feet away. Since then a very careful watch has been kept on the prisoner and it was noticed that while usually quiet and easily managed there were moments when it appeared As though to would like to carve Somo one. Latterly these fits have been Moro frequent and he has been in solitary confinement Moro than Ordinary. He said to Tho Warden that he was afraid to would soon Havo another spell in which he might do damage if to were not closely watched. For two Days preceding yesterday he has been locked up. Tho prison plays Cian and the Warden Havo closely studied his different moods for months and the former arrived at the con Clit Sion that Holzhay was dangerously in coincided with the Opin Ion a Fawn front Tho Warden s own observations and it was decided to remove the prisoner to a place specially provided for the treatment and custody of such criminals. Of course Holzhay Wab a bad Man and a criminal before being convicted of murder but that he is normally murderous is open to Gravo question in his chats with prison officials re Garding himself and his crimes h often spoke of at times feeling an in sane and uncontrollable desire to shed blood and take human life. He said he did not think of killing any person while holding up the stage until shots were red at him and he professes not to remember what happened at the Tim i r he claims that his memory is equally Blank of All his threatening to kill Tho guard and he Only recalls the sting of the Warden s Bullet. Cases of Homicidal insanity Are by no Means.,rare and Holzhay appears to be one of the number. If so Warden Van eve Rahas take nth Wisest course in sending him the Ionia Helper also removed to Ionia is a idiot that was removed from the county House and serving an eight years sentence for criminal assault. The prison place for him As he was too idiotic to be of any use or. Youngquist accompanied Tho prisoners As Jour amusing experiments. To loan Ohhi appear , but Aro in to Willty .
