The Effort S{ the Republicans. to Moke Out that Mr. Finn Is a Thief, '• ' Is n feoomerang. it seems to me, in view of all that has'beondone that it-U time for something to be sftid of a definite eharacfoi in this matter.

When t *gavo Mr Michulson my demand note it was fnade such it note to cover, tho ponding settlement. Should anything happen to mo before a settlement was obtained to covet any possible amount due-him, t left with Mr. Miehelsou some stock. If I had been, dishonest, done wrong, or embezzled by saving Mr. Michelson $800 that he otherwise would have lost, I fnil to see it. Mr. Michelson'9 letter, given me on request, was voluntary and told the truth.; His latter actions, in view of the election, is plain. I never He aeo, ovit public comment. I'invested some money for Mr. Michelson in stock, wanted the stock sold some limb fearing it would decline. I deeded and and turned over to him certain property before tho sale of the stock, doing so to indemnify him against any further loss by a decline in value of tho stock, which loss was then $800. At the'time Mr> Alexander panic' first to Ishpeming the matter was unsettled betWcen.us. I had deeded Mr. Michelson a piece of property for five hundred, He had cut with'my consent certain pine from my lands—the amount I did not know—and was also an old unsettled matter on a land deal between Messrs. Sailing, Hansen & Co., of which he was the company. When J, stopped in Grayling some time since, after the charge made in tho Iron Ore we had not tho time to make a full and complete settlement. I that day gavo to Mr. Michelson $500 for a iioto. ho had endorsed, with ipe at the bank and a demand note for $930, as tho amount due on stock, less the timber cut off my lands would afterwards be deducted. Back of all this there was duo' me on a land deal, the particulars of which will bo found in the following affidavit, the same amounting to more than the amount or the original investruwit. of •eceived one dollar on the Fair & Michelson .deal and when the balance is finally struck it will be in ray favor. With this explanation I leave the matter with the public to judge. J, MAURICE FINN. LADY MANAGERS ASSIGN SPACE Oen. Miles Officially Admires One Hun dred Thousand Men.'

Maurice Finn, now of Ishpoming, Michigan, and formerly of Grayling Michigan, since April' 1834. In the summer of :; 1884 I wan a member of the Firm of Fair Brothers, then of Cheney, Michigan, a small town lying nine miles east'of Grayling. Mr. Finn was engaged in general merchandising and lumbering at Grayling, and was "furnishing our Mill at Cheney with logs for Sailing, Hanson & company, of Grayling. Fair Brothers obtained an outSon on a tract of land near Watersmeet, Michigan. After looking it over ourselves wo entered into an agreement with JJels Michelson, of Grayling, and J. Maurice Finn, then of Grayling, to purchase tho said track of timber. The tract was thoroughly examined by myself, Mr. cause of homo duties, and the rest of tho committee began work by looking "oyor tllo applications. They will continue this work for a time and then go homo to prepare for a long stay in Chi- ciigo. .Mrs. Candemus Wheeler, of New York, chief Of decorationjind,ar- rangements in the woman's building, will confer with the committee and practically be part of it.

We, Fair Brothers, received something from Sailing, Hansen & Co., to apply on this transaction —the exact amount of which I am uu able to state at present. The cutting of the timber was finished last winter. Whether Mr. Finn ever received any thing on this transaction or not I dc not know, but am credibly informed he has not.
