AcUon Is Taken to Protect People From Highwaymen—Measure Is Popular. Manager Raymond Weils of the lola Q. A. K. League team, has been taking options on base ball players with the idea, of signing them if lola succeeds in getting the franchise which they have asked for. He is now in correspondence with Fred Finney v^hose home is at Galena, Kas., who has been playing with the Iowa State League for a number of years. He is one of the fastest short stops in the minor leagues and if Manager Wells succeeds in getting him he doubtless will add S])eed to the infleld. He also i^ in correspondence with Jess Hale of Kundulac. Was., a player in the Wisconsin State League, who will be made captain U Uie contract is signed. Manager Wells stated yesterday evening that he will sign a number ot the lola, Uas City. I.<a Harpe and Hum libldl players of the last year's Trolley Iveugiie tennis nnd give them a tr.\i out.

Such a program will not In jure the Western in the least, while ii wll give the O. K. league a high standing and stability. President McDaniel also announced lust night that he had issued a call for the annual meeting of the O. K. 'eague to be'held at the Mecca hotrl ill Ooffeyville on January 15. It is not definitely settled, nor will it be then. The council took steps Inst night to protect citizens against highwaymen by ordering lights placed at several dark paces in the city. One of the plat^es is at the intersection of Second and Monroe streets. The petition asking for the lights stated that it was a dark and dangerous place for jie- destrlans to pass at night to which the councilmen who were falmllar with the place assented. The light was ordered in. A light was also ordered in north of Miller's protograph gallery. One of the councliinen said thut the place, as it is now, is very Inviting to highway robbers and since there was a great deal of travel there, he thought a light should go in. The council passed on the matter favorably. The reiiuesl for a light at the corner of Indiana and Hrondway was turned down. The coiiiiiiittee reconitncnded that a HKIII II<> jilaced at lOIni and .Monroe near the railway crossing. ONE nCNDRED MEN MADE RAID 05 BISSELTILIE, KY. CITY CI^SES A DEAL WITH PBIME WESTERN COMPANY.

A. Cowan called their attention;;ta Mr. Heath's bill. Members of tl)e'council began asking ques tions: They wanted to know why it did not bear the O. K. of the heads under wljlch he had been working. City "Engineer Amerman arose and stated very emphatically that the reason he d|d not O. "ft. the bill was because Mr". Heath was not working for him duritig the time the bill covered. He said he had discharged Mr. Heath because he did not need him. "Well, ^id he work the time he asks pay for?';' asked a councilman. "He came back after 1 discharged him and was around there," answe'red the city engineer. "WTiat work was Mr. Heath doing?" asked another Inqliisitive counellnjaq. "He had charge of the Distribution of Dirt,"- said Mr. .\mernian, "when he was forking under me." At thlsj juncture City .\ttorney Oyler called the ntteutlou of the council to thtf fact that Mr. Heath was in the room: and might speak for himself. 1 ' Hy request of the council. Mr. Heath got up an^ said he worked on the paving force^^as an inspector during the time he ftsked pay for. "Whd hired you?" was asked. "May^r* Robinson, and Mr. Walker, the street^ commissioner. After Ire sat down there was tense silence f;>r some little time. Mr. Walker was then asked if he had hired him. 'He arose and said he had not hired htm but recommended him as a good man for the work. The, cQuncilmeft then turned, their eyes'in t5ie direction of the mayor as It seeme^ from what Mr. Heath said that he might lend some light on the question. Rut the mayor "oped not his mouth," leaving the council and spectator-e to draw their own conclusions as to Mr. Heath's statement. Dr. Gljnn, growing somewhat exas perated it the silence and circumlocution ot those who were in the hest position :to know about the matter, asked in: no meek voice: "What we want to know Is. did Mr. Heath put in the time working for the city he claims h* did." "Jle didn't' work for me," answered the city-, engineer again, and added, "I didn't" need him." "Heatfi'seems to need the money, though."/retorted Dr. Glynn. During the discussion some one said that«the ^dlrt hauled away by the force 6f men<wUh whom or oyer whom Heath v^as working reached, a fabulous sui^ and the* council bad better pay his-bill, to which Mr. Amerman said that only a part of that amount could collected, he was infonned, as the wagons were only partly filled with dirt and that the -man who bought (Bid he could prove it. John -Alien, who took Mr. Heath's place o {I the street when the latter was dis4 :harged by Mr. Amerman, arose a^ th* If st minute and handed some onfi this package. "We have put in only Ave.days ex &vating since December rett and two of them were in January.;" The coimcll then entered into a disr eussion «8 to who had the right to lire and:'"flre'' employees, after which Mr. Iie^h '8 bill was allowed aa it y^M ap^rept that he put la time towns which finished the season last year and Tulsa, Tola. Parsons, Pittsburg and perhaps other cities, will be represented. Secretary Carr of the local club informs us that he is now In corres- nondence at this time with about flflv players and- would be players, out of which list, with others which may be fiound. it is thought that a very fast team may be culled.

Counrilmen Ask Questions About the Gas Inspector. Councilman J. E. Jones wanted to know last night at the council meeting what the gas insjiector was doing. His question followed the reading of a bill presented by the Inspector for the month of December. The bill ap- ijears rather large. Other councilmen asked the same question but no one could answer it. The city clerk was asked If he could tell them what the inspector was doing that made his bill «o large. His answer was, "Don't ;isk me." The rouncil allowed the bill but came to an understanding that Mr. l^olkner did not need an as.sistant any longer. It developed that the assistant's bill was Included in Mr. Folkner's bill. The gas inspector was not present to tell the council what he was doing. No one made any particular complaint against the irispee- tbr. They just wanted to know what he was doing. TO INVESTIGATE COST. Council Tclok No Definite Action toward Opening South Jefferson.

A SERIES OF LECTURES. Rev. Hamish Will Conduct Series at Reformed Church. Fort Scott. Jan. 3. —Grant Homady. who has canvassed the state for the Republican nomination for governor, tonight withdrew from the race In favor of Ex-fJovemor Willis J. Bailey. .Mr. Hornady says his act was Inspired by the belief that Bailey can reunite the waring factions in the Re- Iiub'ican iiarty In Kansas. Mr. Hor- nndy's letter is addessed "To the' Republicans of Kansas." and Is as follows: "Four years ago a sort-of Inspired frenzy that had seized the Hepubll- ciiii party in Kansas, anxious for a trial of its new fmind strength, did siilisiaiitlal violence to d-time honor, ed custom and. without good caiisn, refused thi' then Incumtient. WIIIIB J. Bailey, a renonilnatton for tho governorship. "Mr. Ikiiley's friends declared at that time, and have stoutly maintained ever since, that'n grevlous wrong v,as done him: one'that, as I had oc- raslon lo point out at that lime, would. :ifti'r siil)i>r tbouKhti be recognized by very fair man. I'he Republicans -of Kan^•as may be re'Jed on to; redress wrongs when second thought comes to the aid of their native honesty. "In the preliminary canvass I hare iieen making for a few months past, in connection with my own. candidacy. I have found- a universal sentiment within the party to the effect t^at. at some time, substantial justice should be awarded Mr. Bailey, and the hastv wrong done him happily righted. "Although these wholesome sentiments have spread over the entire state, tho plan they emliody has been in danger of defeat for the single reason that Ex-Governor Bailey has been, until -now. deaf to the entreat? ies of his friends and expressed a._ desire to remain in private life. Being myself one of his warmest snp- IKjrters. it was only after his repeated dec'aration of his wishes above stated that I got the consent of my mind to enter the contest for myself. "A caraful canvass pf the situation reveals the fact th^t It is the sense of the Republicans of Kansas that 'now Is the accepted time,' and that justice may be promptly as well as fuily done, that Ex-Governor Bailey be their standard-bearer this year. "The close political and personal friendship that has existed between E^x-Governor Bailey- and myself for twenty years continues the same. His friends are mine; mine are his. I believe there is no intention of cross political purposes between us. 'Furthermore. I .helleve that the nomination of Ex-Cqvemor Bailey will effact the amalgatnatloa 'of the factions that have, by lighting each other tended to the demiiralizatlon of party loyalty and endangered our political ascendancy In the state. In view of all these things, and feelln.g that party harmony la more to be desired than the gratification of the ambitions of any man or set of men. I have concluded to step aaife In the fight and lend my aid to the ^ movement for the nomination of Ex- Governor Bailey, thus reuplting the party and assisting In righting a wrong done to a good friend. I would like to have had the nom- nation this year. Wbat campaign I have made has been in good faith; but I cannot Ignore the sentiment that seeks to do right w^ith Mr. Bailey; and my purpose to foster that sentiment Is stronger than nfli- desire for the nomination. I hope the many friends who have given me such loyal support In my candidacy will, as I believe, approve the step I have taken. { desire to express my deep appreciation of their course in the past., and invite them to Join me in helping to do what appea's to me as a wise and needful thing— eliminate factionalism and do right with Ex-Govemor Bailey. "Very truly, "GRANT HORNADY." Precip. 7 a. m. 0 HERAT.,D Schwartz, son of E. J. Schwartz, will leave next Monday for Phoenix Arizona.
