WASHTENAW MAN MISSED BIG SHIP
JOHN LIGANE INTENDED TO SAIL ON TITANIC BUT DID NOT DO SO

So far as is known no Washtenaw county resident was on the Titanic at the time of the awful accident last Sunday. John Ligane of Sylvan township was supposed to have been among those lost but dispatches yesterday from the White Star offices at New York assured his family that Mr. Ligane was not registered. No word has been received from Mr. Ligane, however and his son Patrick Ligane of Sylvan township says he does not know how soon his father will return. Mr. Ligane left last winter to visit his old home in County Cork, Ireland where he was born nearly 62 years ago. A week ago, his brother, Patrick Ligane, of New York received word that he intended to return on the Titanic and would reach this country sometime before April 24th. In the absence of other news it was supposed that he had embarked on the big ship and when news of the shipwreck arrived and his name was not in the list of saved his relatives gave him up for lost. Evidently, however, from the statement of the steamship company, Mr. Ligane changed his mind and did not sail on the Titanic. His sons Patrick and James Ligane of Sylvan, Jeremiah Ligane of Battle Creek, and Vincent Ligane of St. Paul, Minn. are anxiously awaiting his return. Mr. Ligane has applied for admission to citizenship and his petition will be among those heard in June. He has been in this country since 1873, and took out his papers in 1878.

Boy Pushed Off Chute by Playmate May Not Live

Ypsilanti, Mich., June 11 —-Nine year old Fred Brooks lies at the point of death as a result of an accident with which he met at the High school athletic meet held at the Recreation park last Friday. The lad was shooting the chute, and was at the top of the chute, when a bigger boy gave him a push and he fell down. Nothing was thought of the affair at the time and although when the boy reached home he complained of feeling sick his people did not think it was anything serious. He became unconscious in a few hours and has remained so ever since. It is not believed that he can live. The boy is colored, but is a bright little chap and well liked by everyone.

CONGRESSMAN WEDEMEYER WAS BORN HERE AND LIVED HERE ALL HIS LIFE.
Hon. WIlliam W. Wedemeyer was born in this city March 22, 187?. His father, Frederick Wedemeyer, was a native of Lilienthal, Germany and came to this country as the representative of his brother who was an extensive dealer in sugar and tobacco. He acted in this capacity in the West Indies and in North and South America. He was a man of superior education, spoke several languages fluently and had traveled extensively, visiting almost every part of the world. He was married to Miss Augusta Gruner, a native of Germany, in 1855, and settled on a farm in Lima township, this county, near Chelsea, where he engaged in agricultural pursuits until his death which occurred when he was 57 years old. In the family were a daughter, and three sons: Mrs. Nellie Klein, wife of Jacob Klein of Lima, and the sister of William W. Wedemeyer, and Fred and Theodore, who live at Chelsea. Mr. Wedemeyer acquired his early education in the district schools and was graduated from Ann Arbor high school in 1890. He then entered the literary department of the University of Michigan and took a Bachelor's degree in 1894. One year later he took his degree from the law department of the University. Through the two succeeding years he filled the position of commissioneer of schools of Washtenaw county, and in 1897 and 1898, was deputy railroad commissioner of Michigan. In the latter year he was candidate for the nomination for congress before the Republican congressional convention but was defeated by a small majority, and was once again a prominent candidate for that office in 1902, but the threw his strength to Hon. Charles E. Townsend, who won the nomination and election. Upon his retirement from office Mr. Wedemeyer formed a partnership with Martin J. Cavanaugh and this firm, formed in January 1899, soon became one of the most prominent law firms in the city. A few years ago George J. Burke, now prosecuting attorney, was received into the firm as a junior partner, and the firm name has since been Cavanaugh, Wedemeyer & Burke. In 1905 Mr. Wedemeyer was appointed by President Roosevelt to the position of United States consul to Georgetown, British Guiana, and left [for?] that place in April but returned to Ann Arbor on July 3, having resigned because the climate proved detrimental to his health. He was taken ill almost as soon as he arrived there, suffering from fever, and was at once sent to a hospital where he remained until he was taken home. Mr. Wedemeyer was interested in a number of business enterprises, and in former years he had some extensive experience in newspaper work. On Jan. 9, 1901 he was married to Miss Louise Locher of Kalamazoo, and she, with the following children, survive him: George, Edward, Mary and Josephine. Mr. Wedemeyer was a member of the Masonic fraternity of the Knights of Maccabees and of the German Bethlehem church.
