City Council Monday Matlo tlioClty
Levy TlioTotul Assessment Is
65.25 on tlio Hundred.
All tho officials who havo tlio honor
to flguro out tho amount of taxes tho
citizens or this city Bhall pay havo
' now finished their work and tho un-
fortunntos who uro burdoncd with
property will bo roljovcd to learn that
.thousscssraent this year will be but
$5.25 on each of their taxable hundred
dollars.
Hero is tho way tho tax is divided
up:
Tho stato board made its lovy as
follows: General purposes 4.3 mills
county put it thus: County general 0
mills; county bonds 1.5 mills; court
houso 2.5 mills; total 14.8 mills.
lola township, which voted railroad
and brldgo bonds whllo lola city was
a part of It, thus sticking tho city for
Ht share in tho Interost, lovled as fol
lows: Railroad . bonds 1.5 mills;
bridge bonds 1.2 mills; total 2.7 mills.
Tho city school board made Its lovy
of nineteen mills, divided Into 15
mills for gcnoral purposes and 4 mills
for bondH and Interost.
Tho city council lovlod as follows:
Oonoral revenue 10 mills
Int, refund bonds 1 "
Int. water and light 3.8 "
Street and alloy , 1.5 "
Total 10 "
Tho total lovy In tho city, therefore,
Is tho sum of all those, amounting to
live dollars and twenty-llvo cents tax
on oach $100 of assessed valuation.
Last year tho tax was $3.57 on $100,
.so tho burden Is lighter this year than
last. In 1001 tho tax was scattered as
follows among tho various needy de
partments: Stato $ .45; county $.00;county bond
$.12; courthouse $.25; lola township
$.30; city general $.75; railroad bond
$.20; street and ulloy $.25; school S2. ;
water and light, Interest $.00; total
city $3.85; total of all $5 57.
Tnlkcd ou Socialism.
As tho result of a liberal distribu
tion of hand bills by an lola man who
Is a chile vender by practico but a
communist in theory, some fifty peo
plo got torother in tho park last night
whon Mr. Frank P, iO'Hara, tho edi
tor socialist, explained that belief.
Tho talk of tho Socialist Is both
amusing and irritating. Ho asks his
audienco if thoy want more money,
moro lelsuro, more luxuries and less
work. Seldom does he fall to find
willing listeners. That is all their
argument: If you want what tho other
follow has got by thrift or acuteness
of unceasing toll and want It without
working for It, fall In behind mo and
as soon as enough of us get together
wo will take what we want.
O'Hara hns a good nasal whtno
when ho talks. Ono ought to whlno
.continually who has as poor an opin
ion of men as ho has. Ho bolioves
that tho rich aro all thieves; the poor
all deserving, opprossed angels.
So ho laid down this proposition:
Tho laws aro no longer mado to pro
tect society or prevent crime. Thoy
aro mado to enable tho rich to rob tho
poor. I saw a man arnggcu imo
court for stealing throo potatoes. Ho
told tho court that his baby was starv.
ing and his Iwlfo 111. After trying In
vain to find work and mado dospcrato
by tho sulferlng of his starving fam
ily, he stolo tho potatoos. Tho judgo
sont him to the work houso for six
months, and nobody intorceded. On
the othor hand John D. Hockofollor
stolo millions from tho peoplo nnd ho
was mado head of tho Bapilst church.
Ho asked tho audlonco If they didn't
want moro clothes, moro silk dresses,
moro cigars, moro carriages. If so
join tho socialists. If you want a rich
living without tho trouble to work or
think, get Into tho grab Ipnrty. Tho
only Illustration of how tho great
chango in society Is to coino was tho
story of how pike roads wore once
owned privately. JTo did not state
that they pi' mighty good roads,
made goo I b sum' man's money. He
simply felt horror that people
should be asked to keop off tho roads
or pay toll for enjoying tholr oxcol-
lonco. What ho aid. :approvo,pi was
when a mob toro dqjvn tho tpll gates
and soized tho roads. 'I hat was tho
only thing ho said whloh gave a cluo
to tho way tho Socialist mlllcnlum
1 was to bo accomplished.
Ho sneered at tho' Intelligence of his
hearcra. Ho told thorn thoy workod
for loss monoy now than yoars ago,
while tho price of a baro oxlstonco had
increased. Ho s,ad tho boof packors
cot together,! decided tho poor woro
oatlng too rauoh. moat, raisedtho prlo
on that account, stealing millions
'from tho poor and ,ut tho samo tlra0
making tho farraor sell oattlo to them
Jor olght cents which it cost nlno to
rVnd this rooming O'Hara, tho man
who wants everybody to get alibis
work is worth, who bolioves in big
' ,i little work for everybody,
ft-il r,r.aHn of unsolflsnoss,
trotted
all over town with a job of prlntlng'to
Ollara as ho carried tho job out of
two olllces. " '
And right thcro Is thosorpont In his
Eden. Human naturo Is much alike
oren in Socialist reformers and com
mon peoplo. It Is pleasant to think
of getting for nothing what tho 6thor
fellow has and wo havo npt: It Is a
different thing to pay sovonty-flvo
cents for a plcco of work, nlthough
that Is n reasonable price, when wo
can get It dono for fifty'.
Hero's bottlngO'iluro wouldn't havo
to dlvldo with anybody If his scheme
were carried out.
Something About raving.
lola has decided to pavo her streets
and so those figures which Chanuto
has secured, showing tho C09t ot tho
kind of paving wo want, aro Interest
ing horo. Tho Tribune says:
Tho council awarded tho Main
street paving contract last night after
considering tho bids In oxccutlvo ses
sion, to Stephen Schuttlo & Co., a Ft.
Madison, la., firm, whose bid for pav
ing completo was $1.57 per sq. yd.
Six othor bids were considered and
woro ns follows:
W. II. Stuckoy, CofTcyvlllo, 81.(12.
Rnmsoy & Ramsey, Topcka, $1.80.
15. S. Gllflllnn, Ft. Scott, $1.85.
W. M. Edwards, K. C. Mo., $1.87.
John Ritchie, Lawrence, $1.88.
Chopson & Groover, Leavenworth,
$2.00.
Bids on curbing alono were submit
ted by tho Ft. Scott Flagstono Co.,
and Henry A. Usher. Tho firm bid
491 per lineal foot now curbing 14o
for changing old, whllo tho latter bid
00j for tho now and 15o for tho old.
Tho contract must bo completed by
tho cud of the year so It Is not to bo
very long until Chanuto will havo ono
of tho finest streets In tho stato.
Tho contract calls for tho best kind
of paving. A baso of asphaltum then
a layer of sand, then a layer of Cha
nuto brlcklald on sldo, a layer of sand
on this, lastly pavers laid on edgo.
Tho city attorney was instructed to
propnro ten year improvement bonds.
This will glvo property owners on
Main street ten years to pay tholr
paving assossment, If thoy doslro It,
ono-tenth being paid each year by
tax lovy. All who deslro of courso
can pay cash now beforo bonds aro
issued, which it is thought most of tho
property ownors will do.
Surprised Mrs. Rnrtclts
A very pleasant social function oc
curred (it tho resldonco of Mr. and
Mrs. T. M. llartols on North Wash
ington last Tuesday.
Lt was perpetrated by Salem Chap
ter No. 4 O. E. S.. who deftly and
quietly tookposscsslonof thospaclous
parlors, completely surprising their
hostess.
Tho grounds wcro soon lighted with
Japanoso lanterns and a nmndolln
company put In an nppcaranoo who
discoursed sweet music whllo merry
voices whlled away tho hours in song
and laughter.
Mrs. Bartols is an invalid and a
much loved sister of tho order, and
tho surprise was as gratoful as lt was
unexpected. Tho gift of a largo and
beautiful bouquet of roses and astors
presented by tho worthy matron, Mrs.
Shoenarts, In a fow well-chosen and
touching words, was a pleasant
featuro of tho evening.
Rafreshmcnts, dainty and palatablo,
were served, and about fifty guests
partook.
Tho moonlight, tho music, tho foast
ing, the lovo and cheer mado an event
that will bo long remembered by Mrs.
Bartols and her happy friends.
A STAIt.
On the Day Ho Died Sum O'llaru Was
Allowed u Pension of $72 1'er
Mouth.
Notice was received In lola Monduy
from Mr. K. F. Ware, pension com
missioner ;lt Washington. ,as follows:
"1 havo the honor to inform you
that tho claim of Saiuuol O'Hara,
Moran, Allen county,' Kansas, for .in
creased pension has been allowed at
$72 per month from May, 1002."
And that Is a sad, sad story. Tho
letter Is dated'at Wathlngton on the
10 of August, tho very day on which
O'Hara died, . Beforo ho wont to war
O'Hara was, a stout young man.
Broken by tho war he carao homo and
sometime later was allowod a pension
of $8 a mouth. His health was so
poor that application for total dis
ability ponslon was mado at oneo and
urged by Kansas Congrossmen.
It is one of tho ironies of this sad
old world .that tho -pension which
might havo permitted tho soldior to
scok hoalth In a climate moro balmy
than this was allowed on tho day of
his death.

Ono of tho funniest games of tho sea
son was thu Saturday game at Ft.
Scott. Never beforo has lola bcon

confidently predicted an easy time. At
tho end of tho second Inning tho oven
ing papors went to press and thcro was
u chuckle, uudlblo for miles, among
tho fans whon thoy road the scoro at
that time: Ft. Scott 10 Iola 0. But
tho now lola toam knows not tho word
"dcspalt." Tho boys had mado er
rors galoro to help Ft. Scott get thoso
runs. Thoy grinned, cut out tho er
rors, began slugging tho ball and
when tho gnmo was over Jimmy Cra
vens sadly admitted that ho had "got
his drubblu's" and tho final scoro was
13 to 12 in favor of Iola. In tho ninth
tola wus two runr behind, needing
threo to lead. Sho got 'cmand blanked
Ft. Scott.

Iola lost tho Sunday gamo at Ft.
Scott 5 to 4, principally because tho
nuw team work Is not yet pat with tho
players. Tho threo errors mado were
costly, but tho gamo was lost only by
ono 'run. Hull'man, tho Ft. Scott
catcher, did some dirty work In a late
Inning. Carpenter, of Iola, was
scoring from third ou a long lly. Tho
throw-in was perfect but Carpenter
reached homo nearly with tho ball.
HulTmau blocked tho lino and Carpen
ter collided with him, but, not heavily.
HulTmau snatched oil' his mask and
struck Carpenter a dirty blow In tho
face.
Tho Scott team and tho fans wcr
tickled nearly to death when the game
was over and thoy realized that they
had won. That Saturday gamo made
them very anxious. Today tho two

brilliant Holding and only ono error
was made, it costing nothing. A
vicious cloud blew up .In tho north

tho storm did not como over. Tho
wind blow a terrific galo from tho
north, converting many a hit into a
a pop-up, Fair field hits wero
blown foul by twenty feet. Long drives
woro hold by tho wind.
Thus tho gamo proceeded, both
teams doing lino work. Tho last half
of tho ninth inning looked like victory
for Iola. Shaumyor was up first for
lola and got a safe hit. Kuran got a
walk. Holms hit, advancing Shaumyor
to third, but putting Kuran' out at
