Giriide'. i r .1 1 I be V llie city Is In, f<^..;anpther'law suit beduuftof the .'difference in. the gra^e nsed^hy the street niUway In boll'dlng • it8 ^l£\e and the g^de restabllshed PFop|rty owners. This linie W. BarteTs Is the.plaintiff and he sues ' both th^ railroad and the city, asking I 13 .000. damages. Mr. Bartels claims that when built his brick residence pii East Madi - son he asked for and was given the. street grade as it would be pei:nJa- nently and he constructed bis hou, accordingly. Later the car line was put through and the i^tltion says "the defendants conspired to ruin his property." At any rate Ae railway wis alltrwpa-to buinritB'tfSCE'some "thrfe feet" above the Bartels la^, nuiklng it'a jdraln for the highway .and inci dentally ruining the street as a driveway. '• '•! • ' •Mr. Bartels has undoubtedly been damaged by the way things were man aged and it wllll bie a question for the court to determine, whether the city made a blunder in establishing the two grades or whether the railway people ignored the city's orders and built to suit itself. On West street Jhe:^Ity made the bobble and paid the bill, paying for the change in grade made later. If Mr. Bartels has a good ' case against'the cjty there are a dozen other property owners on East Madl -, son who a,l80i have good cases. Partem Winti tola Workmen. J. A. Harney. J. B, Walser and Grant Humes, representing; the labor unions of Parsons, were In lola today iParsons intends to celebrate Labor Day this year and is anxious to have .the Tola unions take part as there are ' many hundreds of them here. The -three are very pleasant gentlemen and "and they mixed with the local labor * leaders and talked up the celebration If tl^ere is any failure on the part of the lola unions to enthuse it will ~ doubtless be because the Parsons unions, after a pretty definite promise last year to'help lola out, turned us down cpld and went to Fort| Scott. The local orgi^tions will decide later as to where they will celebrate. I • 250 School Seats Purchased. The braird: of Education spent good p^rt of last night listening ihj9 talks of six'agents for school aeatlB who desired to sell tbe supply for the new school house in Highland Place.

The brick work is up to the second stoi^ and ^ every day sees the walls grow.; It !8 hoped to have it done by the time school opend in tbe fall. Mad Dog Bit Savonburg Girl. Fort Scott Tribune: There was a serious mad dog bite case in the city yesterday. A young lady sixteen years old, tbe daughter of M. G.

The child was then bitten and she was, brought to this city. Two of the teeth of the dog went to the bone. The stone was applied and it adhered from 11 o'clock in the morning until three in the afternoon.

PUGEJIIOeiiTIN The Absconding Contractor Located and Arrested—Sheriff Will Get Requisition for Him. The Register told the other day of the efforts being made by the ofilcers to locate J. T. Page, the contractor who had the Job of building the store building in Bassett for the cement company, and who drew the money and left without paying his men. Sheriff Richardson made a fruitless trip to Missouri this week after him, but did not give up. Yesterday a tip came to the sheriff that Page was probably at Knowlton, Iowa. A long telegram, giving par ticulars of ivhy the man was wante.!. was sent to the town marshal of ihe little Iowa town. This morning there came a message: "Have J. T. Page. J. B. Forsythe, marshal." Which great ly pleased the sheriff and application has been made for requisition papers in ca^c Page refuses to come without them. Page is charged with appropriating about $260 to his own use rnd if prosecuted lo tbe full extent of t/ie law, has a hard time ahead of him. ilOFTROOMEtliiD House Cenurnlng a Lot of OlirepuU-i lile Colored Wo^en Raided in the Davis Addition. The police last night made a raicl op the house at SU West Scott* street in the Davis addition and 'arrested the Jnmates on.the charge of conducting a disreputable., house. ° There were four women In the place whose names are: Mrs. Coats,. Bessie Coats. Minnie Montgomery - and Alma Wakefield. They were to have been tried this morning but to accommodate the court the.hearing was pdt off until next jWednesday.: The reason for the raid is complaint of neighbors that the house is disor derly and attracts all the tough and drunken negroes to it. Night sessions of carousing disturb the whole neighborhood: and the. general anxiety to get rid I of the bunch - was the ^rst ca^se of the talk about mobbing the colored people. Steps have been taken to: prevent any such outbreak ahd it is believed that with the breaking up of the chief gathering places of the worse class of negroes the feeling against them -will die down. Cement Plant for Independence. — \ The Irjdependence Reporter says Mr. A. C. Stich is home from a trip east and that he secured the location of a glass plant and a cement plant The glass plant is the one that Messrs. Lunney and Biorn, of Orestes, Ind., were looking up a location for.^ Of the cement plant the Reporter says: At Jackson, Mich., Mr. Stich met the men who are interested In the cement l)lant to be located on Rock creek. Mr.. Stich has agl^ed to tak^ an interest in this plant and will'be one of the directors of the company. He says that the plant is a certainty, about all that remains to be done in the way of preliminary work, being to secure the necessary railroad connection. As the capacity of the plant will be 2,500 barrels of cement per day, it probably will not be difficult to get railroad connection. The plant will' cost about 11,500,000 and employ probably 350 men. It is a big enterprise and cannot be put In operation inside of a year, but work on it under way very soon. Real Estate Transfers. Palmer Oil Co. to R L.

Cleage Taltes Revenge. The Register last fall told of the col lapse of the St. Louis corn deal in which lola men had thousands of del lars invested" and from which they were drawing |10 a week on the 1100 invested. The locals were wiped off the map. A dispatch from Chicago dated June 26, indicates that T. A. Cleage, who was squeezed out in corn by the Chicago ring, has Just manipulated a wheat deal and taken revenge. The dispatch says: "Dollar wheat" is the cry of the St. Louis bull clique which at present is engaged ^in squeezing J. Ogden Armour and a long list of "shorts" in one of the most desperate struggles ever witnessed on the board t of trade. For four hours yesterday Thomas Cleage, head of tbe bull clique, manipulated prices in new September wheat in such a manner as to indicate that the cry has substantial foundation. Old style July wheat closed at 83 1-3 cents yesterday, an advance of cenis over Wednesday, September wheat showed a corresponding advance. Cleage settled a million July wheat for from 83 to 84 cents, and more than a million new September at prices ranging as high as 79 cents. The market went %oaring at the start and Cleage refused to sell a bushel. The Armours made frantic endeavors to stop the upward tl^nd. but in vain. Clean up the Town.

A new railroad is being built along the West African coast to be 900 miles long. It is expected .that it will develop that region of Africa. The builders of railroads in Central Africa are constantly complaining of the trouble caused by lions that attack constructing parties. A movement has been started among the builders of New Ybrk City to establish an internatiofial assoca- ton of builders on account of the Trades Union demands. Enormous quantities of i apples are annually exported to Germany. The German government is-about to enact a law restricting • importation, I which will compel apples to be shipped in bulk and afterwards shoveled into barrels. The present scarcity of money in the country is strangely explained by Wall street bankers as due to the fact that the people of the country are carrying much more money n their packets than they ever had before. The anthracite coal companies are preparing an "emergency supply of 10,000.000 tons, which is one-sixth of the annual output. New York merchants have organized to bring about a revivaf of American shipping by which they hope lo have three-fourths of the American exports, carried'in American shps. Financiers are^now predicting a general expansion of speeulaUon in all j kinds of stocks and securities throughout tbe remainder of the year. Stocks are now cheap. China is to be supplied with a uniform currency which it is intended shall drive out all other kinds. The mint at Peking is to be run night and day to supply" the demand.—Pittsburg Chronicle-Telegraph. Glass Sand' In Kanssl^t. Indopondonco .Reporter: ^ Chas.
