A rumor has gone out that an extra
charge will be made by the State fa?r
authorities upon all who wish to hea/
President Taft speak at the fair

As a matter of fact the proposition
was made by a member of the execu?

Cov. Ansel and Capt. Gonzales ap?
peared before the committee yester?
day and declared that Mr. Taft would
not speak at the fair ground at all If
this were attempted.
Instead of making an extra charge
the committee decided to remove the

THE DEADLY ICEBOX.
