ENJOINS THE lOLA PGfllLilNO WOrLI) I'KEVENT ITS MEKr.IXi r>TIL HIS HILL IS PAID. Vsw Three Times In Dlitfrlrt iiitd Twice in Supreme foiirt—He >Voii Everything liut .Money. George Harper, a colored ipan, has asked the courts to siiy|)cn(l the participation of the lola rortlaml Cement Company in any proposed merger until that company ha.s made settlement with him of n Judgment for damages obtained in l>eceniber, liiflS, for Jo,300, for an injury sustained on Christmas day 1902. Which recalls the fact thaf "the mills of the gods grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly fine." The Harper case is anciint and modern history to lolans. llariwr, a colored employe, was hurt at tbe plant on Christmas morning in I>eccmbcr 1902. He sued for damages and at the first trial was given judgment for |3 000. This verdict was set aside and a new trial ordered. At the new trial a demurrer to the petition was sustained, whereupon the plaintiff appealed to the state supreme court. Tlie supreme court rfeversed the lower court and remanded the case for a new trial. This trial was held in 190S and IhiF time the jur.v gave a verdict for ?'> 000. The defendant appealed but the Supreme court affirmed the judgment and the mandate was sent here in Feb ruary, 1909. In the intirim. however, the lola Portland Cement Company of had been trangferred to the olla Portland of New Jersey and later to the lola Portland of West Virginia. By reason of thcpe changes in ownership service was not obtained and the money was never paid to the plaintiff. Thinking that the latest tran^!^orm- ation of the company may prove his opportunity Harper has filed suit for $.1 ,300 with Interest at C "jwr cent from .Tanuary, 1909, and he asks for a Te- Ktrafnlnj order to prevrntvlbe tola company from jmrtlclpatlng In any merger until It shall have settled bis bill. - , • . Which Is certainly an intorestlnp ilhii-tration of why certain very pood citizens are protesting .-igaini.t fi -.e "law's delay:^" and nursing an anti- corporation prejudice which is sometimes not wholly Justified.

Dec. 6.—Returns (his nflernoon from two hundred seventy cut of three hundred precincts in yesterday's municipal election, gave Alexander 68,366 Harriman 37 064. As the count of yesterday's election progressed today statements were made by election officials that women cast nearly seveniy-fivc thousand ballots. The effect of this was shown today by statements of former proidln- ent opponents of suffrage that they had been converted. Klectlon board members declared that the women not only outvoted the men In nearly all (he precincts but showed more aptitude in hcndilng the ballots. They cast their \otes more quickly they did not need as much coadilng and explaining as the men and they worked harder than men for their'favor­ ites. The \ote of the women on city ordinances showed • discrimination There were three of them, the most important being a drastic prohibition nieasure, designed to maVe the city "dry as a borfe." The women voted overwhelmingly against that but de- ciai'cd tor a uiunieipal newspaper.

It became i'.pparrnt early that the trouble exi>med to develop on nc- (!oitnJ,of the feeling engendered by thf .Mc.Namara cuse would not occur during the balloting. "TMie peace InKur- ancc" army of l.COo clKtccrs dotal ler by Chief of Police Sebastian and Sber Iff Hammcl had little to do. Only three minor cases of trouble were reported. Except for these peace Iirevalled and for this, leaders of both -ides thanked the Vomen thousands of whom were crowded about the polling booths of the 317 precincts. The women were treated with the greatest gallantry. Many went to the polls propelling baby carriages and often father took care of baby while mother voted. In one precinct a puzzled wonian voted In favor of the prohibition ordinance though she was op posed to it. When she learned whm she had done she ruohcd bac^c to the boeth and declared: "I- want to change my vote!" She wa.s told that was imiMisslble. "Oh but it must be changed!" she exclaimed, and the election officers patiently explained that it was against the law. In one of the West Side precincts, where voting went on throughout th€ day at the rate of two a minute there was not a sign of impatience when £ woman voter indignantly inquired why there was not a mirror In tit place. Mirrors were not included In th< rlecticn supplier,' replied the chairman of the election board. Then he went to his home, around the corner r>.nd fetched a 'looking glass." Mirror AVas Ccqspicnons. It was hiing outside so as not fo block the voters passing constantly throughout the doorway of the booth. Kverywliere the women were responsible for the unusual election day features. In precinct 121, which Includes "labor temple" a busy house wife, her ^firon still on, rushed Into ore of the two voting booths. •Give in'e a ballot; 1 want to vote," she announced. "But, Madam, you must take your place Inline," an election official replied. She glanced at the long line, and refused. "I lef^ a batch of bread in fhe oven and 1 lyoulda't leave it burn for either Harrlmat or Alexander." And ihe went back'home. ( arollne M SFeverance, 92 years o>d a former associate of Susan B.
