DRILLING HAS STARTED AT THE LAKESIDE WELL FINDING T EASY WORK TO GO THROUGH SAND. Sixly-five Fret the Record for the First Day' Work l-otn of Sightseer. Drilling has started at the Lakeside oil well. For two or three weeks tli announcement has been expected, and the crowd of visitors at the plant has lieen increasing daily. The well was spudded in at 5:4" p. m. Saturday, and the drilling will continue, without in terruption, it is hoped, until a depth of at lea t o.OOO feet has boon reached. The first thousand feet is expected to be eaxy work . The drillers have J been to'd that the sand goes down that far, ami the big rotary dnll goes so fa at through this s-and stratum that the only danger is that the well will j:o down too fa.-.t for safety. Unless the drillers are fairly cautious while diilling in sand, there is danger that the walls may cave in. During the fir-t twenty hours, thei twenty-inch hole had gone down rixty tie feet. Everything hail gone along beautifully for the first twenty-four hours. They . are using the rotary drill, although their equipment in cludes both rotary and standard drills. The drillers have no way of estimat ing how far they may expect to find the sand. Already they have struck a small layer of gravel, but it did not la.-t long, and Sunday at sixty-fit c feet they were back again in the sand. A b'g crowd of interested sepeeta tors were arriving and departing all day Saturday and Sun-lav. Sunday is the favorite day for the sightseers, but ev'Mi on week davs a number of people find time to inspect tiie workings of the machinery and imiuire as to the Vn.gross lioing made.

LABOR DAY IS CELEBRATED IN HOLIDAY STYLE USUAL PARADE HY UNIONISTS DISPERSED ITIL Big Crowd Attend Roundup at Fair view Odd Fellows Enjoy Pic nic at Purinton Grove. Labor day in Alliance lost a good deal of its usual significance, due to the fact that the unions derided not to attempt a formal celebration this year. The day was observed by the men, however most of whom treated it as 11 n ordinary holiday. In other jeais, there have been parades by the various labor unions, as well as a for mal program calculated to impress the world with the dignity of labor. The holiday feature was quite gen erally observed. Practically all of the stores closed at noon or earlier in the morning, in order to give the em ploye.; a holiday. There heipg no so cial enlci tainment oll'ered by Alliance, the pleasure seeking crowd took to thejr automobile and spent the day in a pleasure trip, or attended some of the celebrations arranged in differ ent paits of the county. Two of these proved most popular, the round-up at Fairview, and the Odd Fellows picnic at the Purinton grove. The Fairview round up was prob ably the best patronized attraction on I.a' or day. The number of automo biles parked on the grounds was es timated at five hundred, and the en tertainment provided was most elab orate There wore as many attrac tions roing o,i at once as there is v. ith the u-'t.d three-ringi d circus. Vh festivities started at 1()::!0 a. in. and the program included pictty much of evoything that can be found at we.-i.'in open-air round ups. It was a mo t r.mbltious program for the Fairview community, and was an even preatrr success than they had antici pated. Among the attractions offered at ' Fairview were exhibitions of broncho '"'V?

There were two or three accidents that marred the day somewhat, but none of them resulted periously. Dur ing the game between the Fairview girls and boys, in which a soft ball and huge bat were used, a fly ball struck the infant babe of Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Trenkle on the cheek bone. It was not necessary to call medical attention. Herman Brost was thrown for sev eral yards during the relay race, when he attempted to stop one of the horses preparatory to mounting it and continuing the race. The animal stepped on his ankle and bruised him somewhat, but he ros from the ground and assisted the rider to mount and then fell in a faint. Within a few minutes he had recovered, but will have to use crutches in walking for some days. Casey Haley, ball player, was truck in the back of the head by a batted ball, but managed to continue playing the remainder of the game.

Rosrtta Outfit Again in Dutch Wltlk Authorities Two Si.teen-Yer. . old Girl Taken. Sheriff J. W. Miller, Deputy Sheriff Thomas Miskimcn, Chief of Polk Jeffcrs and Officer Eugene Stilwell en gineered a raid on the Rodgers room' ing house, on Box Butte avenue, con ducted by Mrs. Minnie Rosrtta and her husband, Harry Rosetta. Thia im tho first raid that has been pulled on this establishment, but it ia by far th most successful. Nine pemns, alx ot them women, were placed under ar rest. One of the men was a Mexican. Ihe raid took place a!out 11:30 Monday night under a search warrant that was issunI several dny.i ago, the police authorities laying low until they had an opportunity to "get the gooda" on the place. The olice found what they were looking for, they say. It was 3 o'clock before the prisoner were assigned quarters in the city and county bastiles. Sheriff Miller decided to make a night of it, and failed to go to bed at all. According to Chief Jeffers, when the officers arrived, Mrs. Kosetta was washing dishes. A niece, who makes her home there, was in an adjoining room. Mrs. Rosetta called on high heaven to witness that sho waa being persecuted, and made a bee-line for the telephone, to get into communica tion with her favorite legal defender. Then the hunt began. In one of the rooms, a man and wnm;n discovered dressed in a moro; or less sketchy fashion. In another was a man who had two half-pinta on his hip. The police say he agreed t te -tify that he purchased the liquor at tha rooming house. In othr rooms and scattered about, tho halls were other bonze receptacles. On top of a pile of soiled sheets and pillow cava in the clothes chute were found four , more bottles which had contained booze., the officers say, one or two of. them still containing n drink. On the roof, just above the rcHr entrant, a. jug was found, which had also been recently emptied. In the halU vrere found some dead soldiers. The entire collection including the people in tho. place, were taken to jail, and it waa 11 a. m. before County Attorney' Baye had been able to get the- evi dence rounded up and the complaints drawn. Mrs. Rosetta s niece was left in charge of the rooming house dur ing the interim while the proprietor! were away. Two Bixteen-yenr-old girl. wer taken in tho raid, and the police re cognized one of them as the girl orec whom the parents had quarreled some months ago. There were three children in the family, and the father finally left Alliance with the two younger children, the police nay, leaving tl o'der with the mother, who was era ployed in a local cafe. The other girl has been in Alliance before. Both have been in the city tor three or four week-, ind the police, have followed up their record here. At one place where they took rooms they were requested to leave after, three, flays; at the Wilson home on East ' Third, where they stayed two nights, they left aftr setting ftre to the bed clothing via the cigarette route. They took rooms with the Rosettas only yesterday, and were arrested when, they returned for the night.
