I is?iWIEO TB EXPECT HI iColftrcd Family A«k«d Polle* Prbtoe- < , tion When Nil^bors Jold Them ' f of I Comfngi Trouble. Loat nigbt wuAoot one of peaceful reit to a iQUmlief bf colored famtflei I'esidiag in t;be sputbweflt part of town Barljr in tlio evening a couple of white -women called at: tber borne of one of ' the best colored [families in town and warped them that a mob of smelter- men, was planning to raid the colored settlement and run all the negroes out of town. The colored family, was warned as a friendly tip so the members might seek safety in time., Instead they'appealed to the police for protection. The night passed without Incident . IhTestigatipn later leads to the con ;Clusion that the report was based on fsfjme 'strong talk against one disreputable' colored family which white and 'black neighbors would be glad to see run out ^nd the white women got an idea a general raid was. In preparar ' tion. It Is not even known that the ' smeltermen were planning the raid, and, their name may^ have been used without justice, or merely to give the siorjj added weight, the white smelter­ men being opposed to working with colored men so strongly that none find employment at the Smelters. ; Investigation today seems to Indl cate that the trouble is more serious than at first supposed. Neighbors of some of the colored settlements have been gipwing Impatient. Thieving and 'cupusing at night disturb the ' peace. The colored street walkers, in suiting 'and holding up passersby, have!'irritated people and created belief that the new colored population is bad. There is a deep-rooted prejudice among wprkingmen against ^working alongside colored men. No one of these causes of bad feeling <iould. make trouble, but the pmbina- . tion is said td^ have aroused a deep: ^eated hostility, and there bis been ' talk of a clearing out The situation is of sufficient gravity to have attracted the* attention of the authorities. An officer this morning looked up the state law on mobs and posted himself as to the powers of officials, and especially on the point of financial responsibility of the commun- Jty for all damage done. The, law is strict and makes a county liable for •^rnchings, killings and mob violence. Brick Business House Sold. A deal which has been hanging fire ;for some months was concluded the ,other day through the finesse of Mr. Heller. It calls for the transfer of ownership ifrom J. A. Robinson to . yhos. Bicknell of the brick building on East Madison now occupied by the Schell & Baird hardware store. The consideration was $8,000. It is a good building in a;good, location. Mr. Bicknell Is an Iowa man who has been 'idealing in lola property for some time, jhaving bought the C. H. Wheaton bbouse and the Nichols hotel at different times. '; Fine Funeral Cars for lola. Claude GulbKertson recently received from a callage maker at Lawrence two Tery handsome undertaking vehicles. One is an easy-rlding ambulance for moving sick and injured peo- , pl^, and the other a handsome funeral car for carping the dead to "their last resting place. 1 Speaking of the ve- bicles the liawrence Journal says: ' The Lawrence hearse and vehicle builder. Ralph; Knox, has recently built f(H- Mr. Claude Culbertson lola, as fine an eight column funeral car and white -ambulance as any un de^taker need own. Nothing like the Ambulance has' ever been seen here and the car fa^ eclipses anything ever owned here or; likely to be anytime "ebon.

The department thought the fire was in the town south of the creek and a good run was made, the fire being reached in ten minutes. THfe fire proved to be in the elevator in the west end of the main south building of the cement plant, where the ground cement Is raised to be carried across the tracks to the house. A hot box started the fire and the shaft building was considerably dania£ed, the loss being estimated at about $2,000. partly damage to building and partly cement ruined by the water. The cement company's fire department had over a dozen streams of water playing on the fire and the city department took no hand. iandjjust starting ia business and the getting of such vehicles will surely belp him as it helps a man who can jtum out'such' I work.

The enrollment.was oyer iOO and the Instructors have become very popular. It had been planned to hold the closing festivities last night, but a change was made and th© evening program w^ combined with; the semi-annual association meeting which was held at 3 o'clock. Miss Corn was chosen chairman of the meeting and the election of officers resulted as follows: Maurice Patton, LaHarpe, president; Miss Dodds, LaHarpe, vice president; Miss Cora Powell, lola, secretary, and treasurer. The county was divided into fdUT districts for association meetings in 1904 and the meetings will be held at lola. Moran, Humboldt and Elsmore, tbe time of holding meetings and the number of meetings being left to the county superintendent This formal work being disposed of, the program arranged for the evening was taken up. To begin with, everybody present had been urged and had succeeded in meeting evdry one present. This eliminated all formality and shyness and the 100 teachers all got injp the game. First on the program was i singing of "Die Wacht am Rheln" by Professor Greider and six young ladies and three young gentlemen. Miss Grace Nelson rendered a piano solo. Oscar Brown, of Moran, played a violin selection, accompanied by Miss Young on the piano and was encored. Prof. Greider then read a paper on Schools for Defective Children." He told -:8ome very Interesting things about Helen Keller, the deaf, dumb and blind girl who has surpassed many in skill and ability who have all their senses. Frank Wright, of Bronson, sang a song. Miss Lillian Thompson, of Hartford, recited "The Raven." and was followed by Miss Beeman with "The Inventor's Wife." It bad been planned to demand a three minutes' talk on a subject to be propounded after he was on his feet of each of the'instructors. rUnder the impression that he was a bachelor, Prof. Williams' was asked to dlidilss Ehiforced Bachelorhood." He happened to be married and so turned the loke on Prof. Hall who is juot Hall turned it over to Prof. White and the fun was hilarious. Cards with the letters L. U. B. A. written across the top, each being the first word of a sentence were given all present and efforts were made to fill in the words correctly. The nearest was ''Let us be agreeable," as the sentence in mind was "Let us become acquainted." . Prof. White then tried experiments with his electric -battery and there was holding of hands, while the girls screamed and the men made faces e.3 the current circled about It was decided that the boys took more klpdly to sparking than the girls did. The normal icloses with today's session and the instructors leave for their jhomes. Final examinations come Monday and Tuesday. This morning Prof. Hoagland talked to the students about music and 1 his experiencein the reform school a,t Hutchinson where boys with hard, sullen faces marched Into a room under orders. After a few minutes of singing the faces changed and became human and sensitive. He dwelt upon the elevating, moral effect of good music and his talk was listened to with deep interest. The corps of Instructors this year has become very popular with the students and this has aided greatly in the success of the term. Prof. Greider left today for Marysville, Prof. White for Colony, and Prof.Wil­ liams for Hiawatha. Prof. Hall will remain here some time.

The Iola management would have played a game with Pittsburg yesterday had the groundl permitted it, btit they wore too wet and at the last minute the game was called off. The two teams broke even on the four games played, and have two postponed games yet to play off on Pittsburg's next visit here. By rights, with the tcain not crippled lola should and would have taken all four games, but up to (late wc have lost four giamcs to Pittsburg wTiich team has wpn but thirteen games altogether. i .1 Th^ Forjt Scot;; ball t^am which has Just won 'two gafaies out of four iit Leavenworth, arrived today for three games here, and lolai should move past her in the percentage column. Care should be taken by the new management to preserve order. The last management, it will bo remembered, permitted the umpire to be "mobbed," and let the crowd throw stones at Harry Cheek."
