Cl^UaSS F. SCOXT Bw>rto)r»' Boom BoitBeH Office ...IS HERE FROM GHANUTii JUM Attelia Bingham Drew People From Afar. (Chanute Tribune.) SeTeral Chanute theater-goers went to lola this afternoon to attend the presenUtlon of "A Modem Godira" by'Amelia Bingham and her company. More from here will go on the OU Flyer this evening- Miss Bingham has a metropolitan reputation and has rever before appeared in this part of the state. Lady Godiva it will be remembered, #aa the woman who rode through the streets of Coventry In the altogether, because her husband who had a far-fetched Idea of humor, told her that if she would do this he «^Id grant her a favor for whidt she aaked. '"*mm There were no police in those days tomake her put on a blanket, and the pedple, so the fable says—for the story ib nkerely a tradition—hid themselves and agreed not to look ui>on the fair equestrian—all but one, who peeped ao'I became blind thereby. It should not l>e presumed, however, that Miss Bingham will appear this evening 4n nothing more protecting than goose flesh. She known, doubtless, from what she has read of bi^pcnlugs in lola that the peop'e there would not be likely to go off flshing or lock themselves up! in their homes and draw their window blinds if ehe were M put on the regular Godiva stunt. She plays the vdrt of an ObgUfih woman, wbo to get the money iwoeasary to save the fortunes of her boose, poses for a painting of Lady Godiva. Because of this there is a great scandal, and she has all kinds ot trouble with her husband and her friends before things are satisfactorily explained. iLLlifl REFUSE FIRE HOSE ConrU Says It Is Not the Kind They Bargained for. The council has refused to accept \ the Are hose recently purchased from the Ehireka Fite Hose company. The h^ was ordered some time ago. It arrived a few da^'s ago but the council Is confident it is not the kind ordered and for that reason refuse to accept it. A motion was passed last night Instructing the clerk to notify .the company that the hose was rejected. It is possible that the hose which is •here was Intended for Parsons. It is known that Parsons ordered hose .al>dut the same time and it is possible that the loVa hose was seat there and the hose intended for Parsons sent here. JUST CAN'T HELP IT PiM Of Chas. Wolfe Arraigned for DmnkeBness. Chas. Wolfe who was arraigned in police court this morning on the charge of intoxication, told Police Judge J. M. Collins that he could not help getting drunk. This was the foartb time Wolfe has been arraigned in police coui;t on this charge within the past sixteen weeks. Before assessing the fine Judge Collins told him bow the money which he had contributed to the city In the paA would have purchased the meat for himself and family. He also warned Wolfe not to appear before him again on this charge as he would have to give him the maximum fine. He was given $5 and costs. XOT TET, BCT POSSIBLY SOOS. CenBcU Net Keady to,Boy Voting The city council last night adopted the report of the finance committee ad vising against the immediate purchase of a voting machine.

A rather i>erplexlng problem was Ipresented the council last night with referent^ to the sewer privileges In the Ayling district.
