An action was begtm in the district court here Friday by F. V. Crouch to compel the lola Telephone Company to install and maintain a telephone in his residence. The company removed the one there and refused to put It back. The plaintiff claims that the company is a public servant and as such is compelled to serve the public. A writ of mandamus Is asked for to cbmpel the giving of the service and the hearing 1? set before Judge Foust at Yates Center tomorrow. It is prob able, however, that the case may oe held and heard at lola. The company will fight the case. Their contention ia that they had and 4naintained a telephone in the Crouch residence ' which he feiiled to pay rental for. ^ Their rule Is that the ser» vice must be paid for three months In advance.' It was upon Mr. Crouch's failure to pay this bill that the phone was removed. Afterwards, they say, he paid up and tendered |24, a year's rental In advance, for the phone for 1903, but they refused the money and refused to put in a phone. The' issue is an interesting one pnd lawyers are disagreed as to the I fthe phone company is like many public servants it will have to main tain the phone. STBEET ELECTIDN Adjourned Annual Meeting Held This Morning and Old Directors and Officers Were Re-elected. WiMa Yoli Want • Firat-Claai TIN OR CORNICE WORK 4de, The Tinner There was a meeting of stockhbld ers of the lola Electric Railway Company at the offices of Thompson & Thompson in this city this morning and the annual election of directors and officers was held. The time for hdlding the meeting was some months &eo, but at that time an adjournment was taken to July C, The same old board of directors was chosen and the same officers re elected. The directors are: F. V. Crouch, W. L. Barteis, A. W. Beck, F. J. .Horton, L. L. Northhip, Geo. A. Bowlus and C. M. Crouch. The officers are: F. V. Crouch, president and geiferal manager;'L. L. Northrup, vice president; C. M. Crouch assistant manager; J. F. Thompson, secretary and attorney; Geo. A. Bowlus, treasurer. ' Mr. G. W. Baumbpff. of St Louis, who built the road and lacks but a little of being able to control It, was not present He arrived a few minutes after the business had been attended to. His-feud with Mr. Crouch Is still as vigorous as of old, but thus far the latter's lawyers have bnought him oil victor. A year ago Mr.Baumhoff divided his votes at th? ^lefition and failed to land a single director. He sued to have the men he voted for seated but lost the suit Some months ago at the annual meeting Baumhofl was on hand but Crouch adjoumed the meeting before anything could be done. Had' Baumboff been present this morning be could have elected a director. The meeting was set for 9 a. \m., pursuant to adjoumment, and be appeared about 10. Mrs. Delp, who has been on an extended visit at Osawatomle, Is home agkin. According to the Kansas City Journal Jf lola wins today and Fort Scott loses lola will be In second place in the percentage oolumiiL Can we make thUi riffle.

W. Coffey,- has regained hhl liberty and will not be brought badE to lola. for trial. Such is 'the report broug|it^ home by Sheriff Richardson, who went after Page with a requisition from Govemor Bailey last week. : Page made the plea that a|l that he was wanted back here for"was for a debt He hired good lawyer^, one of them chairman of a state central committee In-Iowa and a close friend and supporter of the governor. County Attorney Clifford and' a firm of Iowa lawyers, represented Kansas and the plaintiffs In the case. If it were true that the crime charged was simply debt the law says no man shall be arrested in one, state and carried back to another. Governor Cummins invited the attorneys to his office and listened to their arguments and as a result .of that hearing ho held that Kansas had no claim on Pago save that he was a debtor and refused to honor the requisition. The lola men {.think there was some political pull In the' deal, as a gubernatorial compaign Is now on in Iowa. Page was turned loose. Of course if he is caught In Kansas or any other state but Iowa it may be possible to arrest him again. Page, it will be remembered, built the store room for the'cement company In Bassett. He drew the money to pay his men and skipped out with it leaving the company: liable to the men for the bills. He also bought a watch of J. W. Coffey o\a the Installment plan, paying $1 dovlrn and agreeing to pay the other |30 in install ments. The one dollar wis all he ef er paid. It will thus bo. seen that there was a dual charge of crime against Page and if ho is simply guilty of be tng In debt and exempt from being brought back and punished the bars seem to be let down for a whole lot of defaulting.
