GEORGE MAY HAD A HARD GAME It required all of the beef ana' brawn George May, the husky transfer man, possesses to try and collect a bill this morning at the Southern Pacific depot. And then George did not collect It without the aid of the law, which was called In later, According to his story, George was awakened early this morning to haul the baggage of the Brltt-Nelson moving picture show to Kern In time to catch the 6:60 train. When he presented the bill, Harry Monahan, who •was In charge of the show, according to George, refused to pay it, saying • he did not have the money and that when he came buck this way in tvvo weeks he would hand over the required $3. This did not go worth a cent with George and when he remonstrated Monaham argued and In the meantime the two other members of the show got busy. One secured the tickets and the other checked the baggage and when the train began pulling out the three made a dash for the coaches. But George was not to be out done without a struggle, so he grapped Monahan and pulled him back which was the signal for the two others to break into the milling, which they did with a vengeance. It wns a hot scrap while it lasted, but as no one came to George's assistance the three men got away. George immediately took the recourse offered by the law and he declares that if Monahan does not come through with the three dollars before show time tonight, there will be no fight pictures in Portervllle this day, ROWAN IRWIN -"•• STOPPED A HOLD UP. •> Rowan Irwlu prevented a •!« holdup Saturday night.

RESENTS ROOSEVELT'S ATTACK ON LABOR CLOSINBWEEK'S STRUGGLE AT HAND WASHINGTON, Oct. 2b'.—Presidorif Kamuel Oompers, head of the American Federation of Lalioc, today made reply to President Rd'osvvelt's assault upon the working people for supporting Bryan, fie decUiros that the President has completely "changed his position of at least an apparent friendship for labor, to one of BITTER, INDEFENSIBLE antagonism. Mr. Gompers declares that in many conferences, never before did Mr. Roosevelt ever hint that the measures advocated by labor were "lawless, brutal and wicked." The President nvnetienlly fnvored. in his message to Congress, the very things he now denounces, and which are approved in the Denver platform. 1 The labor leader emphatically declares that Roosevelt's letter is a specific attack on labor because labor is aroused and is. determined to control its own vote. This, he says, is what, led Mr. Roosevelt to make the "worst exhibition of demagogiKin" and display "impotent rage and disappointment." "It forms," says Mr. Gompers, "an awful descent from the dignity of the high office of President of the United States," does this attack on the men who toil. Taft is directly referred to as the "injunction judge," and the statement bitterly resents the enmity to labor expressed by the President.
