of a strike. While the scale com

Firemen Want Public Park.
Norfolk firemen at their regular
meeting last night took possession of
a petition with twenty-two names al
ready attached to It asking the city
council to call a special election to
vote $10,000 for the purpose of pur
chasing ground for a public park.
The firemen are now behind the
movement and after Uioy have the
required fifty names signed to the
petition they will present It to the
city council for action. The firemen
declare that they can get BOO names
signed to such a movement.

by the firemen when Hurt Mnpes ,
who has had the petition In his pos
session since 1907 , offered to turn
the document over to the firemen

culate such a petition.

Would Buy Twenty-Six Acres.

to vote $10,000 bonds for the purpose
of purchasing twenty-six acres of
ground north of the city , Including
the race track and ball park. This
ground is to ba converted into a
public park , owned and supported by
the city. The firemen believe that
the time is opportune for immediate
action on the park proposition and
they expect to put energy Into the
proposition. Acompanylng the peti
tion now being circulated by the fire
men Is a plat showing the ground
proposed to be taken into the park
proposition. It is not necessary to
secure options for this land , as the
present statute makes provisions for
the city to use what ground it deems
fit for park purposes.

ROOSEVELT IS DISAPPOINTED '
Oyster Bay. March 15. Col. Roosevelt
velt earnsel $37.80 as a juror , but
probably never will receive the mon
ey. After he had been excused from
further duty nt Mineola yesterday a
court officer advised him that he
could claim mileage at the rate of
eight cents a mlle for the distance
between Oyster Bay and the county
seat. By railroad the distance Is fif
teen miles , so that Col. Roosevelt
Is entitled to $1.20 for each of the
nine days of his service as juror. I
"I haven't any mileage , " ho said.
"I came by automobile. " j
He loft the court house without
putting In the claim or producing the
subpooena which qualifies Jurors to
receive $3 a day so that the $27 fees
and $10.80 mileage allowance which i
the colonel has earned probably will \
remain In the county treasury. ]
Col. Roosevelt did not conceal the
fact that ho was disappointed in not
having served in st least ono case.
Ho said ho always hnd held that men
who are prominent in business or
public life should do their share of
the public work , particularly In nerv
ing on juries , and It wus largely be
cause of his views on this subject
that ho did not avail himself of the
immunity ho might have enjoyed at
When it became apparent that his
services probably would not bo ac
cepted , ho decided It was useless to
make any more trips to Hlncola and
gladly availed himself of the sugges
tion of Judge Putnam to bo excused.
