The Our Wpy resxaurant was c'os- ed this afternooa at two o'clock by 'Receiver Guy Pees. The action was taken after Dennis O'Leary, one of the partners of the business with.' drew his offer of ?1,700 which was made to and acceprce *y tne referee. Judge Corey, at Ft. Scott, yesterday The deal was to havA been closed and the business transferred to Mr. O'Leary last night, but he took tlie matter under advisement until today when he withdrew his offer. It was then decided ,to close the doors. This means, unless some offer is made to the bankruptcy court which ii satisfactory, that the restaurant will be sold the highest bidder on December 4th. The creoJtors are to meet that day to present tneir claims and as it Is the custom to sell the bankrupt stock on the day of the creditors' meeting. It is supposed that ihe Our Way will be sold on that dste. The Oni- Way went into bankruptcy a few wejeks ago. The indebtedness was approximately $2,000 and the assets $3,750. Mr. Pees was made re- reiver by Judge Corey and placed In charge. The Our Way with doors "closed presents an unusnal sjght. It has always been open night atid day and has always had a good patronage. It was established by George Wilhlte who conducted it until a little over a year ago. Jack nrennan. who conducted the business with Mr. dreary has been Ic Westphalia several days and it is not known whether or not he will re- tarn to lola. Mr. O'Leary has not yet decided what he will do. At the next session of the Municipal League, which convenes tbi* coming December of January at Parsona. Kas. Dii O. C. Glynn will endeavor to get the organization interested in a uniform system of bookkeeping for the Kansas towns. He believes that a uniform system of bookkeeping similar to the one now in force In the state of Iowa, would be a great benefit to the cities of Kansas and would be a saving) to cities all over the state. The Iowa law provides tor state auditors whose duties are to go all over ,the state and audit the books of the different cities. Provision Is made whereby n certain number of citizens in a city who want to have tne city's books audited, may sign a'petition and then the state will audit the books free of cost At the present time every city in the state has Its own bookkeeping system and it Is a big expense to any city to have its books audited. The idea of Mr. Glynn is to giet th» municipal league Interested in the project and let that organization use lis influence to have such a bill pasa ed by the legislature. The uniform sj-stem of bookkeeping for the cities and the employment of state auditors Is working successfully in lola and might give satisfaet-'on in Kansas also. It may be that the suggestions of the lola councilman wiH be acted upon favorably when the league meet.s in Parsons.
