To WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: This is to certify that Messrs. R. C. -Stevenson Son of Iowa City, Iowa, have the exclusive sale of our genuine Pocahontas coal at that point, and same cannot be purchased there through any other leader. We understand that inferior -coals are being offered to the trade at .Iowa City under our name, and would suggest to the prospective purchaser that the best proof of the inferiority of these fuels is the fact that they find it necessary to use our reputation in order to secure a market.

The plantiffs built a house in Lone Tree for Lucy Richey and presented a bill of $90 oo, for extras which she refused to pay claiming «it was too much and the case was brought into court. The action of the mayor and council in stirring up the matter of lamps on bicvcles is having a good effect. At least a half dozen bicycles with lights were seen on the street last night. This shows how quickly the public respond to laws that interest every one. Until the police are provided with tin goggles it is barely possible a lanternless bicyclist will be "run in" some night. Rev. Francis Harrington, an old time Iowa City boy and a graduate of the University, but now a missionary located at Iquique, Chili, is home for a year's vacation.

Hohenschuch has returned home from the longest and most success ful of his lecturing tours. He traveled 6coo miles and put in seventeen nights in the perepatitic hotels of his friends--the Pullmen Car Co -- and it has no more constant prtron than Will. The O. S.

Two more car loads of stone. from the Cleveland Stone Co. came in this morning, and are on the Rock Island tracks. This makes six car loads now here. Unless unloaded pretty soon there will be a prospect of a bill of demurrage on the part of the railroad, and its one that will be apt to hold good.

Miller, the marble works man, extended his visit down east to points in Vermont, and at Montpelier went out to see Admiral Dewey's home. It is a stone house on the hill side, built almost a century ago, and as usual in that part of New England tbe stable is joined to the dwelling. John asked why? and when told it was to save a trip out doors in wintry weather, he made up his mind either it was fearfully cold in Vermont in winter, or tbe natives were not inured to a bit of zero temperature when the houses were built. Notes of the Team and Game Personality of the Men Who will Battle for Old Gold. This year the football interest at S. U.. I. is at fever heat and nearly fifty men are candidates for positions on the team which will carry the banner of old gold on to victory. M. E. Eby, for two years one of the best players on the S. U. I. team, is captain and Fred. McCutcheon editor-in-chief of the Vidette Reporter and a warm friend of athletics, is manager. Among last years players, who will appear on the girdiron, are Baker, Eby, Burner, Morton, Brockway, Williams, F. A., Warner, Williams, S. C., Howell, Middleton and Macy. The new material contains some excellent players. Carl and Bordman come from the State Normal where they played last year. Edson was Ames' end last year and Weiland won glory as full back on the South Dakota University team. Ingham comes from the team of Wilton College, and Clark from the Yale Law team. Other old time players who will join the forces of S. U-1. are H. B. Waters, V. E. Herbert, R. E- Robinsofa and F. H. Meggars. Other new material is present in goodly numbers and nothing stands in the way of a winning team this year. Coach Knipe has his mon well in hand and will give them a test this afternoon against the State Normal team which defeated old gold last year. The State Normal team arrived last night and are a husky looking set of fellows. They have a strong team and are coached by Dr. Sweetland of Uulon University, New York. Mr. Sweetland has bad four years' experience as coach and thinks that he has a team of winners. Many of last years players appear on the line up of the teams together with some excellent new material. The State Normal boys seemed wel pleased with the stand that S. U. I. has taken against professionalism and say that in all probability they will also cancel their game now scheduled with tbe Des Moines school. The line up of the teams in this after noon's game is as follows. Mr. Mohnke Talks About the Court House Stone. MOCHA AND JAVA True beauty comes from within instead of from without.

Griffith attempted to kick goal but failed. Norm- alites then kicked off and a lively sciim- mage followed, S. U. I. forcing their line steadily forward, the theater ot war changing often. The game was a hotly contested one, both teams boing about evenly matched. The score at the end of the first half resulted as follows: S. U. L--5. State Normal--o. In the second half S. U. I. made 17 points completing the victory by the score of 22 to o. Contractor Mohnke of the Court House arrived in the city on the fast mail this morning and at eleven o'clock talked to a representative of the PRESS about the stone and the delay in the work. To start the story Mr. Mohnke states that today he notified the Cleveland Stone Company that four cars of stone were here subject to their orders and further states that he will unload no stone until some changes are made in the contract now existing between the Cleveland Stone Co. and Rawson Mohnke. When asked what the contract provided for and what changes were desired Mr. Mohnke replied: "The contract now provides that the stone is to be accepted by the board of supervisors of Johnson county. That we pay 70 cents for the tone and must stand the loss of all work one by us on the stone if they are not ccepted." These are the two principal hings which are in controversy. -"Mr. Rawson, my partner, signed this ontract through a mistake. We had demanded of the stone company that the icceptance of the stone should be made y the same persons and under the same conditions as are provided in our contract 'or the acceptance of the completed building from us. This, we think is right, and demand it for our own protec tion. If cur work is not accepted by the architect we can not draw a cent of money and if at any time the material used is not up to the standard the work can be taken from our hands, a board oi arbitrators appointed and settlement made and we be dismissed from the work. "The other change desired is a clause fixing the cost of work of unloading, cutting and work on inferior stone, should any be sent us by the stone company and this is also necessary for our protection. Should tbe company ship stone here not up to the standard of the sample and we unloaded it the loss to us might amount to more than our profits on the building. "The mistake in signing the contract by my partner was due to a misunderstanding, both of us thinking these clauses were in the.document. From here I ordered stane shipped and the company refused to ship any stone until the COFFEE, v 2Oc f oupd 2Oc Liimsden Ruaidliarl Telephone 104. 130 S. Dubuque St. flew jVlillipery Stoye....

The Mikado scored another success last night and to-day every one who attended is loud in praise of all who appeared on the program. The entertainment was managed and controlled by Iowa City people exclusively, and everyone who attended got full value for their money. In all, about $400 was cleared for the benefit of athletics and represents the amount, which was practically given by the cast and management. They give their services and their services brought the cash. Sums like this is what will make athletics a success in S. U. I. contract was signed and a bond given. I notified my partner of tbis-and he immediately signed, the contract, furnished a bond and_forwarded them. When our copy of the contract came back I saw it for the first time the other day, and we immediately rejected it because it provided for the acceptance of the stone and other matter as I spoke of before. Yes I telegraphed my foreman not to unload any stone and none will be unloaded un til the contract is amended as we wish it. The architect and board must be the parties to accept the stone. If they are not we are not safe in preceeding with the work, and can't do so until the matter is arranged". When asked if the delay would keep tbem from completing the contract on time he stated--"It may be, but if it does we will come on the Stone Co. for reparation". The next question ? s \ e i M r Mohnke were--What do you pay for the jail stone? Answer--"50 cents per cubic foot delivered here --That is their standard price. What does the contract now existing between you and the Stone Company provide as to the price of the court house stone?--Answer--"70 cents. Why is the difference?--Answer-"Find out,--I can't. "The specifications of the court house call for their stone and the}' make the price. The price of stone at 50 cents was bid on by us as we knew that was their standard price".
