Hence—Chanute Frosty. •f '. • The surveyors for tlie new electric line bave driven their pegs in the out- filtlrts of Chanute and have aslced permission, to survey the town. It has been promised that the matter will be 'brought before the council and reasonable action talcen. but no word has yet been received indicating that any- tlting has b^n done. The McCaion franchise at Chanute Las'expired and none now exists giving tlie right to the use of the streets of that city. There is no good reason why the Chanute people should longer object to the lola line, which In real fact means as much or more for Chanute than it does for lola. Prominent ,Chanute meh have, already expressed the opinion that at the proper time friends will apt)ear at court and intercede In behalf of the lola prompters. But up to date the line has been run Jupt to the edge af^S^^n. From lola to Hiiuboldt the profile - Buy your Groceries of us during inlyf We will'maire H profitable for yon.

Santa Fc Ave These people were turned down by the council who refused to gpnt them the privilege of running over the streets in the city. It was reported at the time that the capitalists whom they represented would build an In ter-urban road commencing at ' lola and skirting. Chanute, but the fragment rumors were not given much credence by those interested in the electric road project. Evenf.q which have transpired of late load to the cqnclusion that the early rumors wore n6t without foundation and the com pletion of the preliminary snrvey seems to give assurance (hat the road will be constructed as far as Chanute at an early date. Our own road seems to be still in an embryonic state. Tiie Oak Gold Mining Company. There has lieen organized another mining concern in this county that holds out ^he opportunity to investors to share in prospective rich r'^turns. This is the Oak Gold Mining Company, chartered under the laws of So«ith Dakota for $2,000,000 capital. T'lo mining lands are located in ihs (JIameron Mining District. In Chaffee county, Colo., and the assayer's repDrts hint at fairly rich striSes already ma-l'^uid better ones in view. Will Hcs.^of Ifumboldt, is president; John Hess Colorado, superintendent; O. B. Cllne, of Colorado, vice president, and B. S. Slough, of lola, attorney. Some stock has been sold here and at Humboldt and the promoters are sanguine of success. ..Largest Line..

Page were completed, ^rrectly the other night and Shoriif Bi^hnrd^on is expiected. home daily ^'l^ith the prisoner. Page skipped out (|Wjng some 1200 to his workmen on a'con tract for building a store building in Bassett for the cement company and he is also wanted by J. W. Coffey. Coffey sold him a watch on which Page paid %\. Mr. Coffey says ho heard that Page bragged that he would get the watch on one payment. It lia-s been rumored bore that Page would resist being bmuglit hack, but this hardly seems likely to avail him any thing. The Register has boon permitted by courtesy of Messrs. Fuller & Fuller to see a coi)y of »ho Mt. Ayr, Iowa News, published in the county whuro Page was caught, and the following extracts will douhtloss be of interest here: J. F., Pago, one of Roosovolt's Rougli Rlilors, has boon in charge of Sheriff Miller since Saturday, and will ho tak on back to his homo in lola, Kan., if Governor Cummins will honor a roqui sit ion from Governor Bailey of Kan sas. Page is wanted for embezzle ment, the charge being that he drew $2G0 from a firm for which ho wi4 erecting a building, and then refused to pay his men. For over two days after the order for his arrest came nothiiig could bo learned of tUe charge against Page, and the community was wroiipht up to a high degree of excitement and curiosity. Page Is known as a man of roving and adventurous dispositiozt. He has been all oVer the west; carrl<^, a 4r)-calibei; revolver, served in tlW Rougli Rider regiment during the Spanish, war, was the first city marshal- of Deadw <X )d, Dakota, who was not killed or forced to resign, and has traveled with Buffalo Bill's "Wild West" show. Hence when the mystery arose over his arrest the popular conclijsion was that Page must have been into some outlawry, probably a killing. A fine sensation was siKiilcd when itelegrams came yesterday afternoon stating that only the paltry sum of $260 was involved. Page Is a gentlemanly appearing man. He was born and brought up in this county, btit left here about 22 years ago, when ho was 20 years of ag6. His aunt. Mrs. Kendall, who reared him. and his sister, | Mrs. J. C Gustin. live In Jefferson tovv'nship. Page's story is that ho had a contract to build houses for th(J lola Portland Cement Qj. Through . the ,maneuvers of bis enemies his union worlc- men were Induced to tfareateD to qnitj •. if: him unless he would pay above the usual scale. The company made him employ the. union men though his con tract did not call for union labor hence ho ran oiu of funds and decided that it was just to throw the exlrn cost on the comjjany. Ho decamped and came to Ringgold county to visit relatives after fran.sacting business in Dea Moines. He says his wife ^iSt bave botr^ed him, as she alono knew ho "would call for mail at Know last Saturday. He therefore conclude (hat some family trouble which he thought was settled a few months liack is still a live issue with Mrs Page.

Ks. lo Town Mar.shal .losoph Forsythe, of Knowlton, who by a remarkable coin cidence is Pago's half brother. The message said Pago would call at Knowlton Saturday morning for his mail, and instructed that he be arrest od. When Page appeared Mr. Forsy the told him what wcyo his orders, to which Pago ropllo<l: "I wtm't let you arrest mo, but I don't want lo liurt^ yf)U. No two men can take nio. If a inuiol) of men came after mo 1 want yon to keep out of tho crowd so as to iiot got hurt. I'll be back here Satur day oyonlng." I'ago wont north, walking the rail road track.

In charge rtf a constable and two other men. Mr. Terrell took from Page a 45-ralibfr revolver, a pocket knife and a belt' of cartridges, and brought the prisoner to the jail in Mt. Ayr. Says the Men Were "Sloppy." The Register has a note from Mrs. E. B. Davis, giving her version of the unpleasant episode on the north side the other night. She says four men stood under the roar windows of the building; that they were driuking from a bottle, swearing, and using ob scene langtmge. She was awakened by a pistol shot fired by her son-in- law, A. K. Allen, who informed her that after asking the men to leave he had thrown: a pitcher of water, not slop, on them and then fired into the air to call the police. Mrs. Allen lay very 111 in a bed where she could not hearing the obscene talk. The finking men got the police and came up to the rooms, threatening arrest add the whole family is much incchs- ed that they should he so put out because they object to the carryings-tm under their window.
