Cburchills friends in lola and oyer the state, who know what he has'don? for the labor society think so. That i.« the reason they are working nl&hf .ind day for his election at the convention of the State Lrfilior -society in February. About a year ago a number of the members of the society inet at Pittsburg for the purpose of selecting a candidate to run against W. U A. Johnson, the present incumbent. Pratt Williamson of this city, and a member of the lola Carpenters' I'nion to which Mr. Churchill belongs, suggested that C. O. Churchill, of Tola, was especially fitted for the place. .Mr. Churchill had served two years on the committee on legislation and those attending the conference knew of his ability and at once put their stamp of approval on (he lola man. He was later persuaded to get into the race and is now an avowed candidate. However, he does' not feel that he can spend any money to get the office, and hence is not traveling around over the state In the The fourth annual banquet of the .\ll<n Count.v Haker University 6t ilf-nts Association will be held tomorrow night In the auditorium of the Y .M.

At the conference of Mr. Churrhlirs friends held at riflsbnrg, Pratt Will lamson was selected to manage Mr. Churchill's campaign and he Is l«'av ing no stone untitrn'-d to carry il)e day.

Of course we know that Mr. Johnson will put up a strong fight. He ha.^ alt the machinery at his di.«posal bii' I do not think that he will be the choice of the delegates. Mr- Churchill has been indorsed by so many of the cities over the state that we are greatly encouraged. The objeciion raised over the state against the re-election of Mr- John son is that he has used the office for private and political ends. The position pays $2.."i>0 per year. Speaking of the fight for presld<'nt of the society the Toi)eka Capital says: Indications now are that there will be three candidates for Labor Com mlssioner when the convention of the State Labor society is held February 1. The names are W- T>. A. Johnson, •who will be a candidate to succeed himself; Charles H. Danner, of Fort Scott, and C. 0- Churchill of lola. Mr. Danner Is new president of the organization. Four years ago he was elected vice-president and last year •was raised to the presidency. He is said to be preparing to make a hard fleht tor the ofllce- Mr. Churchill, the other candidate, has served two terms upon the le^slatlon committee. Mr. iobneoD, who has had charge of the stAte labor headquarters for sev' eral years, does not anticipate any great fight, dispite the reported confidence of the other candidate, and feelB «UTe he wiU be re-elected.

Vandiveer. father of Eugene Vandiveer, the young Bayard man who Inthe winter of lf»0.5-0t; was found guilty in the Crawford county court of manslaughter in the first de- ?ree in causing the death of Miss Bertha Smith, also of Bayrad. is making an effort to secure a parole for his son. A few days ago a brother of young Vandiveer asked an lola attorney to write the prison ofilcials with reference to when the prisoner would be eligible to parole. Vandiveer was given an indeterminate sentence from Tt to 20 years- It is believed, by some that since he has not yet serv-ed the minimum sentence his application for parole will not now be considered. A prison official who was In the city recently said he believed that Vandiveer could secure a parole, on account of his good behavior, at the expiration of the minimum sentence, providing all charges against him in connection with the case were drop- Iied. .At the time Vandiveer was tried in Crawford county he was charged with a like offense In this county. In N'ovember last this charge was dismissed In Judge Hough's court. Hence It now Biipears that Vandiveer may hope for a parole when "he has serv- d the minimum sentence. This morning the father of Vandl- oer called on the county coramlsslon- era who were In special snsslon and asked them to sitnj the application for parole. He thought that It would make the application more effective If some pf the covjnl'y officers signed At noon when the cimmlssloners The (Jo-lHjvlls, according to the Chanute papers, want (fnother game with Ihe Triplets to be played on .New Year's day. The Siin says that the game here Christmas day has given the Go-Devils much courage and that they are anxious for another contest. ' The Tribune .says of the game: lola won from Chanute at fcot ball again yesieo^ay. bui if wa.s more l)e- cause of luck than anything else. The score was t! to 0. The Triplets made their touchdown in the .'^econd half when the game lacked but twelve minutes of being over. They had recovered a punt, and when forced to punt again kicked the ball to (;hannte's five yard line. Clch- erty tried to- kick gut of danger. He ni-ide a nice piint. but it went high and ihe wind coming over the tops of the trees almut the field, blew it out of bounds over Chanuie's five yard line. Inhi jmt it in play there, and succeeded in farrying it over. It took them three -"crinmiage.s to do it. the Chanute men contesting every Inch of ground, lola only managed to squeak through by using lionald, Kansas university's greatest tackle, to batter a pace or two gain at u lime, and on the third scrimmage the ball was just iiver Ihe line and that was all. Chaniue had much the better of the game in the first half. The lola team was iieavier, Iiui ii could not prevail. Chanute had no truble in breakiijg up the forward pass, which is tola's fereat offensive weapon, and the game' was mostly two bucks against ihe line and then a iMuit. A fair-sized crowd was in attendance, eiilte a number going up from here. The gate re.-eipts were H20. of which the Chanute p'ayera received $210, it having lipon agreed tliat the teams should .share half and half, no matter which won. Priest and Clark were roughed up considerably In Ihe game. Priest got a terrible blow In the groin, but was able IO fl;ii.-h Ihe game. There was seme talk of playing another game IO be pulled (iff here (Ui .New Year's day. If It Is iiiiitched. Chanute feels confident of winning It'. CENTER OF SE8SMIC SHOCK IN ISLAND OF SICILY.

The case attracted much interest in -Allen countv as thi) families of the or'ncipals In the case were both well Vnown. having lived in the Rayard vicinity for vears. -An Incident in connection with the trial and the application for paro'e which has excited much comment is the attitude of Conrad Smith, father of the girl. It is said that he refused to lend his efforts or to give his sanction In prosecuting Vandiveer. • the case being pushed by Mrs. Smith and her father. It Is also said that Mr Smith was among the first to sign Vandlveer's application for j>arole. Vandl veer's defense In the trial waa that he was entirely Innocent. He -'d that he took the jlrl to Pittsburg o marrj' her. but was not responsible for her .condition. It Is said that his relatives now claim that another man waa responsible for the girl's down- fa'l.

K. J. Giddings. "Parker's father lives in lohi. Kan., and his mother in Arkansas City," was one sentence in the tetter, and -Attorney Giddings attaches much significance to this additional information, sirice the defense is to be I>a.sed on an alibi and the Harry Parker c'-aini will fi.giire prominently in ihe case.
