SuGciMer to th« tola Dally-RMlster, ttiri ^ lela Dally Record and the lola^ Dally Index . * EIGHT PAGES: MlT A> OLD rilORLEM (WME TO I.IFK AT COMMISSION MEKTIXl TODAY. HORVIlLESWJiNTIMPeOVEM'T COMMISSIONEKS HESITATE: CITY JiOT RESPONSIBLE, THEY SAY. Foniiul Notice Served on Coninils. sloncrs This Afternoon Indicates J)aniiige Suit to Follow. . The mayor and city commissioners wrestled with an old proMem this afternoon. It conecrnod the railway switch that connects the city power house with theOIissouri Pacific railway. It is the track upon whlcli cars containing supplies for the city's power house are delivered to the plant. Part of the switch is on the llorvillo land and part on the city's. Jlr. L. _E. Honllle, representinR the llorville estate, contends that the city has raised the grade of the track until It has made ingress and'egress to tho-Hor- ville land near the Neosho particularly difficult. In a communication to the commissioners this • afternoon. Mr., llorvillo made a formal demand that the city provide a good and sufficient crossing. The comnfunication further stated that becaus-e of tlie present condition of the track continuous danmge •was being done. This proposition has boen up many times previous to this session of the commissioners. The board iwlieves thkt the city is not responsible for the situation of which Mr. llorville complains and the comniissioiiors assert that they cannot see how ihey can be required to place a crossing on the city's land. The improvement, it is contended, is iii) to the railwaj- or Ihe HorvlUe estate. If the railway dtnies that the spur Itclongs to it. then tho city nuiy take possession of tlio switch and operate it. At a late hour the question still was under discussion with Attorneys Morse and i'ees representing Mr. Hor- vllle. Aside from tlie discussion of the Horvilie claim only -routine business was I'ransacted liy the board. OITOSE HETTINti AT F.MKS. Hutchinson Ministers Stiirt Flirlit oni KnnKHs Law.

'' General Diaz In replying, thanked Beltran an dsaid he was sorry the>it- uation would compel him '• to offer a forcible defensq. At the same time he asked Beltran to fix the longest possible time for the exacuation of the city b>; all non-combatants. Diaz then sent copies of both communications to the foreign constils. a.^king that ail foreigners in the city should make an inventory of their effects left behind when they moved aiid promising to indemnify them as soon as iiossible for any damage that might be entailed by a battle.
