Bartlesvllle Roasts Hayden. Some time ago Tom Hayden. who o»'ned the tola baseball teaih in the O. K. league became quite incena- . d hecniise a Parsoiis paper referred to him as a "tinhorn sport." Mr. Ilay- d'-n will probably not !«• pl«-aseii when he reads the following from the Rar- i|r'.svill<» Kxamlner relative - to the closing games of the O. K. league: It is hinted that Tulsa money pur- cha.sed t^c. whiski-y that produced' a driink for the Bartlesville players. While that is not sportsman-like it Is no more than could l»e expected. .\gain. with hut nine Bartlesville men in uniform yesterday. John Ratirwine. .acting as a representative of Hayden. would not allow^ Ross Speck to play iu left field for the; locals, c'aiming that be had not heretofore played with the local team. At the time the game was six to four in favor of ttc visitors. Does any person suppose for an instant that McDaniel would have acted similarly, under like cin^umstances? He v.'ould have allowed the man lo go in and never questioned the propriety of the act hut not so with Hayden'3 bunch. Baseball Is a sport for the fair-minded public, those liking fair play and an even chance for ail. rhc bringing up of a technicality and playine: a petty, un- sportsman-like and baby tactfcs shows that the city of lot air is well represented by "T.

Sept.i 12.—Bradstreet's says today: The advance of the fall season and the notable enlargement of the mov<;ment of cereals and cot ton to market .at goo«l prices have mad*' for a further moderate expansion In jobbioK and retail trade and collections. This Is especially marked In Western. Paciflc coast and Sou thorn centers, hut itie point Is made that a great many si>ctlons have done better relatively than large industrial cities in the matter of n'tall trade, osalbly liecause of warm weather or the reduced purcha4ing power of city workers and xhe hl^h prices paid for (arm products. Induatrics too. have shown some luproTement. .notable in this respect being coal ami lumber interests. Au increase also is reported in blast furnace capacity, and (there is mort* doing at the paper mills. In the textile tradea little chan^^c is noted, and while the fall demand for dry coods,- millinery and kindired lines has im> proved, the consensus of reports Is that buying Is frequent rather than heavy, and con .ser ^tism rules purchasing. tANSING WANTS \% state Prison Town Wants to be City of the Third Class Now. r I.>anslbg Sept. 11.—The fifth attempt to incorporate Lansing into a city df the third cla.ss is meeting with opptt- siiion and J[his with the fact that th.e p.'o-incon>ni^ation faction believes that it is gainink deserters from the anti- corporation! ranks will delay the firing of the petition. :The opposition prophesies high taxes, and the warmest of ttie opposition candidly admit that if they did not see increased taxes in incorporation they would favor the movement. Dr. .1. T. Faulknor. who is circulating one of the petitions, expressed bis opinion that the advantages to be derived from incorporation would more than counterbalance the raise in taxes. Dr. Faulkner said yesterday: i Taxing Tonganoxie. Easton and Linwood as a basis, in my case—they give a specific Rlustratlon—the Increase in taxes would be $3.S0. Now I pay $50 a year for coal. Lighting and beating my house would cost me not to exceed $15 a year If I used gaf. and incorporation makes this a-possibility.
