Billiard in his $3300 Lancia won; all credit is due him. Burman in his $1000 Buick gave him the fight of his life and brought his car in with such a lead over the remaining contestants that there was no question concerning the standard which the Buick has set in low-priced automobile construction. The great duel between the leaders was a sight which spectators will never forget, NOTES ON THE RACE The Buick used was a regular stock the sake of securing less clearance, the were underhung.

Holiday Suggestions! feK? z** '-» Good Things and Fine China Organized labor the country over Is deeply interested In the outcome of the contempt cases whereby the labor leaders, Gompers, Mitchell and Morrison, were sentenced to Jail. The statements of the accused men when asked If they had ought to say is indication of tlielr position. Mr. Qom- pera said in court: "I am not conscious at any time during my life of having violated any iaw of the country or of the state in which I live. I would not consciously violate a law at any time during my full life. It Is not posible that under the circumstances which I am before your honor this morning and after Ilfl- tening to the opinion you have rendered, to say that which I have in mind, but, sir, I may be permitted to say this: That freedom of speech and freedom of the press has not been granted to the people to say the things which please; but the right to say things that displease, even to do a wrong. "This is a struggle of the working people of our country and it Is a struggle of the working people for right. The labor movement does not undertake to presume to be a higher tribunal than either the courts or the other branches of the government of our country. It is a struggle 'of the ages—a struggle of the men of labor to throw off some of the burdens which have been heaped upon them; to abolish some of the wrongs and to secure some of the rights too long denied. If men must suffer because they dare speak for the masses of the men of our country; If a man must suffer because they have raiged him * ?* to meet the sordid greed—even to grind the children In the dust to get in dollars—they must bear the consequences. "But," continued Mr. Gompers, "If I cannot discuss grave problems, great Issues in which the people of our country are interested—if a speech made by me during a political campaign, after the close of this case; if j the speeches In furtherance of a great principle or a great right are to be held against me, I shall not only have to but am willing to bear the consequences. I would not have you believe me a man of defiant character In disposition or In conduct. But In the pursuit of honest conviction and In the furtherance of the common interests of my fellow men, I shall not only have to, hut be willing to .submit to whatever your honor may Impose/' Jlr. Mitchell followed in a strong, resonant voice: "I thoroughly and unreservedly eft- dorse what Mr. Gompers has said. I would like his expression to be accepted as my own." Mr, Morrison spoke last, 44 I endorse," said he. "what Mr. Gompers has said. I am conscious of doing no wrong or having in any way violated any law and It Is my belief that In every act I have committed I have but exerted my rights under the constitution and the laws of the- land." Commenting upon these remarks, the court said that there was nothing In them that would cause him to change the conclusion that he had reached. In fact, declared Judge Wright, they but emphasized the at. titude of the? defendants which he Shad pointed out carry the finest line of imported goods to be found in Valley.

A Chicago dispatch says: Orval Overall is telling his friends why he quit the stock yards. Acordlng to Orvie, they were having fun with him at the i yards. Instead of assigning him a soft and lucrative job, like the one given Mordecal Brown, they gave him the task of herding sheep in pen and runway, where the mud was four feet deep. Everybody else had hip boota [on, but Orvie had new striped pants jancl patent leathers. Into the mud they chased him, and for hours he fought rains and baa-ing beasts that stepped on his vest, and occasionally hit him in the dinner with very strong horns. Once lu a while one them would hop the \wn t an 1 Orvie had to Marathon up and down the mud after i stockdom sat on ed for joy.
