Detroit Michigan, Jan. G.—Bishop Charles D. WS'llams. of the Episcopal ! diocese of Michigan, has opened a I downtown office. "\V^y should not churchmen take as much Interest in public affairs as anybody else?" asks the bishop. "I believe the man who Is an advocate of one kind of righteousness ought with equal energy seek all other forms. Partisan politics are the , curse of municipal elections. The on- I ly place for parties In city affairs is In nonpartlsanship—^paradoxical as that may sound. I believe In municipal ownership. It is conducting for the people and by the people what is essentially their own." FLAT RATE FOR BEET 3IE\. Growers In (3ardcn City District Ask .More fur Siloing. WORKS AT 124 YEARS.
