Final word of progress in the securing of glass workers who would take stock in and work at a $75,000 factory in lola came' this morning in a. letter to Mr. L. L. Northrup, the main part of which is herewith printed. The letter says: "I have just had a meeting with Mr. Gilbert who has spent the time since returning from tola in a persistent endeavor to get tlie required number of men and amount of stock to insure the success of the projected glass factory. He has encountered this difficulty, namely, the organization and attempted organization of numerous co-operative and independent glass factories among the working men of the various gas towns of Indiana which have glass plants. Several of these have been succgssfully organized, some to operate. In Indiana, others to go to Pennsylvania and West Virginia, and others possibly to Kansas. These various ; enterprises have broken Into thto sources from which Gilbert expected to gather his men and ho tells mo this morning that ho feels that It Is ImpoBslblo to got the men needed at this time and that therefore ho must roloaHO tho tola people from fuirthur dependence on lilm. lie iHgroatlydiHappolnloa by tho result. I knoW myQoir Ithat ho has nindo a moat vigorous aiid determined effort— traveling among ail tho Indiana gas towns and spending much money. For tpysdlf, I asBUfo you that I feel deep regret and I triiet you will convey this expression to the good people of your Cotomerclal club who were so hospitable and who manifested so much enterprise and public spirit, .and in th^s I know that I voice the sentimed* of Mr. Gilbert also, "I mak^ this suggestion—and wholly without any initiative from Mr. Gilbert—Wl^y don't you people who subscribed stock, build and operate a glass plant: of your own? There Is big money In the business. You can employ glass workers and, with a good .manager)^ you can' get the money out of It. • ' _ '• 'Thanking you and others there for the courtesy shown us while In your city aiid wishing all abundant success I remain. yOurs very truly, M. M. Dunlap." ' • I This plant seemed certain to come here as lola people subscribed for $14,000 w6rth of stocK and the workmen were expected to put In $500 each. The letter explains the reason of failure.; On tho other hand plenty of workmen can be had who have not the funds to take stock, and the suggestion that lola people go ahead may be acted upon. The failure of the original plan is disappointing for the reason that lola public spirit came into such active life when the call for subscriptions was made. It is nobody's fault and the funds and sites ; offered to Mr. Gilbert may be used by others. flEXOICKEII SL James Butler of Emporia Bought it and Intends to Enlarge and Improve the Plant.

Yesterday was an off day In the Missouri Valley League but lola and Fort Scott played a doubleheader to make up for the games which rain prevented when lola was there the first time.

It is Mr. Butler's Intention to oq- large the present plant and give even a better market for the farmers' live stock, than the out-going owner has done.'
