In the oast patients have been sent to the pest house on the order of their physicians, and in practically all of these cases the city has paid tne bin This practice has been used to such an extent that a physician or two has comnlained because the pest house was not fitted with all the conveniences of liome. In a recent case, thecity paid for the installation of a telephone, electric liehts. city employes carried water to the building and furnished coal, and there was some complaint because the grocery bill was not paid. "The patient was not even a resident of Alliance.

A. was organized thirty- three years aeo. and now numbers a hundred thousand members. The west is rallying to the T. P.

Th Alliance men were interested in th proposition, but the estimated expens of from $1,800 to $2,600 a moaUk rather put a damper on the discussion. The concensus of opinion was that th club wasn't in financial shape t sponsor the project, and that it was more or less doubtful whether th money could be rained here at , this time. Following the meeting, some of th men are understood to have had a change of heart, and that thera may be at attempt to frame some sort of a plan by which Alliance can be included in the proposed league. The prospect ' Is a pleasant one for the dyed-in-the-wool baseball fans, and it may be that there will be enough enthusiasm to put it across.

Independent outlaw baseball, whera the players are outlaws and seek to hold up the fans and supporters ot baseball because they demand prices for their services so high that to run a ball team for the average town of thia size is too great a -burden; we, there fore, are writing you to put u itt touch with any or all parties in your city that would be interested in back ing organized baseball.

"The railroads and the employes are equally bound by the decisions of the labor board.

"We can't say there will or will not be a strike. We are preparing for an emergency that threatens. We are going to give the public the best serv ice possible should such an emergency visit us.
