If yon do nut. jjcrbaim you haye beeii a patssHnKer on IntenirbftH car :when, the lowlands of East lola were flooded and when the water, after a bard rain, was sweeping over the street car track and flowing in torrents In Lincoln park and even on up as far west ae the .Missouri Pacific and electric line •crossing. A move to remedy this condition was started last night. A petition was presented to the city council last night asking tliat that body investigate and devise some plan by which the pro|>erty lying east of Kentucky street and south of East street might be protected from the flood. The petition set forth the fact that, when hea,vy rains fall, property in (he "wet" l)elt becomes a veritable sea. The water backs up into the yards of hemes in the vicinity of the Missouri Pacific crossing and renders it un- liealfliy, almost untenable lo say nothing of the inconvenience. The street and alley committee to whlcl^ the matter was referred^nd of which Alderman J. ^. Jones is chairman, said that his committee would take action at once. C^mmfttee WIU Act at Oncew . "I am not quite certain that this matter was referred to us." .Alderman Jones said this afternoon. "We had quite a discussion cf the subject and vtt tR,lkp(1i nf raf«trring it to one of (iWmi -lionmiltteeB. However, if our committee Is the one to whom the responsibility falls, 1 will see that some action is taken at once. Something ought lo be done out there. I will call a meeting of the committee and we will go to East lola un u trip of inspoction tomorrow." Alderman .Jones' uncertainly a.s to the committee to which the matjpr of drainage for East lola was referred will be dispelled by the note.s of Charles E. Wendorff. city clurk. whose record of the session last night shows that the matter was referred to .Mr. Jcnes' commit!CP. i The move for the drainage and thus the betterment of East lola is a good one and is one that will be heartily welconied by thp citizens who live in • that vicinit}-.

One week from tomorrow it is expected that the Kansas Supreme court will pass upon the Barnes law <^ase. appealed fronii the AHen county district court. The case was heard at the November sitting of he court and has been advanced on the docket for the reason that it is of vast importance to the high schools thrnugbont the state. Several counties are contemplating the erection of new high school buildings, but of ronroe could not afford »o do so if tlie law is declared to have been illegally passed. Judge Poust held the law to be inoperative In .Allen county and the board of commi^:- sioners refused to make the levy provided for in the law.

Tne plan is. this: The street coinniissionor has a most excellotit op- portuHiiy to keep advlsfd of the condition of siilewalks throiichont the city. In liis dally trips about town hi' olistTvi s many wlii(rh are in a bad condition. If the plan suggested iiv .Ald 'Tiiinn Jones is ndniitpil. and it sfHins now that It will be. J. S.

ARE IN A QUANDARY A Street Intersection Should be Paved But.City Ooesn't Know Whose Duty it It. A Imtcr from Charles E. Eldredge, of Topcka. state fire insuraiice inspector, was read to the city council 'ast night, it cricltlsed the condilioo :,t the city wafer works station at the N'eoaho river. •The city ought to have more fire hose out there," .Mr. Eldredge Wrote, "and there is too much waste and In- ianimable material lying around. Haste should be taken to install fire apparatus and the oils and waste should be taken into the power house sparingly, .say, one day's supply at a .Ime." .Mr. Eldridge said that an agent who had visited the plant some time ago, iiade the report at his request.

'•i.,et's see," .Mr. Heech said remin iscently, "I do remember that an insurance agent came out here and looked around about two weeks ago. Whea Mr. Eldredge writes of the lack of fire hose, it must be on account of the report of the agent. I recall that on the day the agent was here that the apent did not see our l>cst hose. We bad quite a lot of hose whifh was out' on the fence drying and which the inspector's agent evi- cm\y did iioi .see." •As for the accumiilatiui of waste and oil. we have bni little o!i hand at 1 tiniP.

Property owners residing in the vicinity of North Buckeye' street last night presented a petition to the council askins that .a tile be laid in the too block on .North Buckeye in order that the water which accumulates there after each rainfall might be drained off into a sewer.

The \)oni\ is signed by Burri>n E. Clifford and W. J. Evans. WTiose duty is it to pave the Inter section at Benton street and the Missouri Pacific? Any and ail answers to tbfs perplexing question will receive due consideration at the hands of the city council. For mouths and months citizenr. have clamored for the paving of the Intersection. But the railroad com nany. by saying nothing, declares by its silence that it i.t up to the city. The city belleveH that tlie railroad company ought to do the paving-. First, an eight foot front was granted to the railroad, then the railroad gave it back to the city and now no one hardly known who the littl<^ tract 01 land on Benton belongs to.
