The coinmissioners agreed to require this particular piece of work to be standardized at once and the city electrician will be direcieu to never again presume upon the condition of any job. He must give.all electrical work rigid inspection and whenever found faulty, require its correctioit before giving his approval.- The approaching winter season with the prospect of occasional shortages of gas and consequent poor light'• ing' service has caused many home owners to instal electricity. The state has a standard which it prescribes and whicli must be observed. The Insur.nnce department will not jiasa any defective jobs and If protection is to be I had. the home owner must s(>e that his wiring is such that it will pass state Inspection. h la not the intention to embarrass any jMirtlcular.-coutractor by referring to this iwrtlcular Instjinc^ and i;lvinK names and premises. The hope is i*at li general warning will aid in iinpress- •:jnK" uiHin contraitor and citizen the nn'^esslty of caution in electric wiring and t)ie necessity of Riving e \tTy tie- tall the attention it slinuld liavt'. When a evriain iilac in lola was insured recently, it *e acnt!; roiK )rt<'<l the electric wiring siiMnuard. Thi'v did so iH 'cause th. y w. ^^^ told that i: was. In- some way, thr Insurance companies learned t !;ar everytlriij: about this particular job mi ^ht not Ih- right and they caust -d .I 'l iaspfcior . to make a special visit to lola. The p'sult was that (he work was found to be below standard in several particulars. The owner was dirt<>ied to have his wiring brought up 'o standard at once upon penalty of the forfeiture of the insurance polic-es. Most home owners know nothing about wiring so the city, in order to afford protection, requires by ordinance that all electric work shall be inspect'-'d and approved by the cji.v electrician l>efore the job is passed. A little care- k>ssne.ss on the part of the Inspector who says he t/Mk the word of tlie contractor to the vffcct that the wiring was standard, caused the ditlicu !ty which the commiE ?ioners discussed to day and which tliey have agreed to settle. After disposing of this question the coinmissioners receiwU and accepted the resignation of Dr. Frank S. Beattie as ^ member of the board of park com raissioners. I)r. Beattie gave •^s the reason for his resignation the f .act that.his lime was so fully occupied thar he could not give the park work the Wme necessary. A petition asking th .-u the lola Electric railway be required to place Its thtcks on north Jefferson avenue in such a, condition as will not interfere with traffic wJN re<'eivod and referred to the city attorney with powt* to act. Mr. Hitter said he would probably bring suit to forfeit the franchise of the company if it failed to promptly hei^d the request to repair the track, M.erchants and tnotorisis say that tKe^rails project up above ih<> paving to such a |K >lnt as mak<s orossini: the trackii at any |K )int north of .Madltiun avenue dangerous Supply Aliundunt While Fort SrotI Is FJICIIIC a l)«'.>«|M'nil«' Sltuutlou Now. Kvt-ry little while it is permissible and timely to make mention of the fact that lola e"hjoys one of the . finest water supplies Ih Kansas. Not only lias the quality been pronounced as rankln.ar at the tip In this .'•tate, but the qimntity l-s practically Ine.vhaust- ible. The city supply today, after a long dry spell is about 7.'; feet wide, an average of U feet deep and about seveir miles long, every drop available for use from the iiumping plant. Listen to this from last night's Fort Scott Tribune: The residents of Fort Scott are eau- liont'd to go slow with their water and make every drop count, for the supply i.-; getting so low that if there is not a rain during the week the river will be dry. The conditions have never been i-o alarming before, not even wh^n the river was almost dry, for that year It lasted but a day or two. This year it has been going on for weeks and there Is still no rain In sight. The water drops down about a foot a week and increases each week as the river g<?{.s lower, for the bed becomes narrower. A week ago the flood gate w.as flu.*!!!ed with water; today if Is about the .ciirface and the waK . i.s' having a hard time to get through The trencWng was begun this morning to dig a course around the dam so the water could get down to the punip-housc.

Later It was learned that It was a Socialist meeting the itQin was changed, but as printed it stated that the- members of the G. A. R. and \V. K. C. had secured the So- ciallBt speaker.

Worthen, a street car conductor, are missing and robbery has been accepted as the mo- live for the crime.

Kas., Oct. 29.—"To furnish thf p'eriple of Kansas with a cheap, •A holeioirie and delicious article of food," is the chief object of the state fish hatchery dedicated here today, when Gov. W. R Stubbs turned a str..-am of water from- a twenty-one inch pipe into pond 1. The action marks the opening of the largest place in the world devoted to the raising and study of|fish. Bresent at the opening were members of the board of regents! of the .State irhiversity. Prof. L. L.' Dyche. .-=tate fish and game warden, the stat6 architect and other officials, besides many prominent men. who are Interested in the ijew venture that expects to fill the streams, lakes and pbnds of Kiinsas with jfish. The hatchery, ac- conilng to Profes.'or Byche. will endeavor to educate the people of thft state in the raising of fish to provide a !uod that can replace beef. i>ork and miittt>n. Th.> new hatchery comprises more tlian one hundrtMl concrete |)onds con netted with the latest water system. The HBier Is obtalnijd from the South .vlinne'cah river, whi .h becnust) of Us flow through miles of water cress, mo.-'S and other plants Is said, to bo well provided with minute anln^l and plant life that furnishes fish food. •The hatche.-y officials expect lo be able to furnish brood stock for ponds throughout the state, in this way bringing the food supply close to the hotne of every farmer. Fish, says Professor Dyche, to be at Its best for food, must be cooked flose to the place where it iy taken from the water, as it loses flavor when long off Its native . element.
