TnstMs Thompson and StoTiII in Cal­ aboose—Big Urowd Attended Trial Today. As a result of what might hav« be«>i a serious encounter between tba pas tor and trustees of the colored Bap t)st church of Ba^jsett. Saturday night duriitg a business meeting, the cit> treasury of Barssett was enriched about 126 this morulng. Those who contributed to the fund were H. A Thompson, 110 «nd costs: Mrs. H. A Thompson. $5 and costs; Alf Soval', Ifi and costii. The charRe was dls-turb- ing the peace. There are conflicting 8torle.s todny as to the origin of the troubl? but from what could be learned it soenii- to have arisen over the matter of who should have charge of the church funds. For some time Rev. Andrew Hill has bsen acting as pastor oC the church. He came here aUmt jjlgwLr ago from Georgia and ' hurkfi ^^l^en an active part in the E^^aai^bL'^jftKltus been employed at . I>oiiKlaB8' Iiv «r)- bam a good part of V the time since coming to lola. Ftor seyenil months he has been acting as the regular minister for the dMirch. The pastor has been faa^inf troub'e with several of the trustees; who is to blame is a matter of dispute. The point in tlie contention as has t>een said seems to have been over the e^re of the church funds. It is saiji. Yltat H.' A. Thompson, one of -. the-thMlJsr.'TSonght he should have charge of it. He, It is said, has been taking charge of it and putting it in the bank. Saturday night the pastor, trustees and other officials met at the church to consider business; matters. It de valoped during the hearing this morn ing of the parties fined That Mr. TI>omp::on arose rtiirlmr the sessiov and aslsed the pastor to resign, and declared the pulpit vacant. Rev. Hill had already been imited. whether officially or not could not b? Ie,-irned. tr resign, but he did not do it. .After Thompson made thi.s statement there was a general mix up in which it \>charged that Thompson drew a knif*' 0.1 the pastor. .Mf. Stova'I. also n trustee, who ha.s been in symiiathy with Thompson, took a nund and )>said to have iis?d at li -at -t Ixiisterous Icngnage. Mrs. Thompson is said to have struck Mrs. Hill in the mouth. During the melee tbe pastor was so crowded by members of h's floct tiiat he darted out of tlie door and called Marshal Jim Frederickson to put a quietus on tb? trouble. This WIS eleven o'clock. Mr. Frederickiion went to the church and arrested Thompson and put him in jail. He was arrested because it was charged that he drew a kaife on the pastor He denied this charge but a knift- • was - found on him. Yesterday mom- Icy Stovall was arrested and p'oced in-Jail. Judge Peters handed in his resignation as police judge of Bassett several . day* ago. as he intends to go to the West, but as his successor had not been appointed, his resignation was not accepted. He therefore offle iated this mornlns- One of the largest crowds that ever gathered In the Bassett police court was on hand at tbe trial. The colored people were efpecfally well represented. It was said today that a warrant woa>d be issued for Rev. Hill but at noon no action to that effect had been Ukenu Marshal Jim Fraderlckson said tcdar that Rer. Hill had reported to him on prevfcma occasions that Tn^tees Thompson and Stovall were an- rulr. PANAMA'S INMEPENOSNCE OAV. lathmiaii fla»iiblie and tho* Canal Z«n« C«l«brat«. PaLOMDa, Kor.

Ii has been suggested that i nia.-is mpplii!*; lie willed for the pur- )i 's. of taking the matter up. If any rt'asonab'e a.?reemeui can bo reached It Is likely that a committee of business men will call on the council and ascertain what water and gas ratL'S could be secured. It also has been suggested by business n;on that :i tiUl;scrlptlon paper De clriHlatcd unions the citizens and business men of the city for the purpose of raising funds to pay for the land on which to locate tha bijc power house. A. \y. Beck said this morning that something wou'd have to be done within the next week. The following shows the attitude of tbe lola business men toward the proposition. The faw who were seen this mornins were heartily in favor of an effort being made to gi-t the power house: M. Schoenbrun. of tbe \PW York store: "Since the Kansas Southfrn Electric railway orlgmateU In lola It would look bad to see the jiower house located In some other city.

It is be'ieved at the WTiite house nd among the cabinet members that <bth tbe matters on which legislation % so urgently demanded will be ths letter for deliberation Instead of laste.
