It la a joy nnd a tiling good to con template, tho way lola peoplo go after things when oncu thoy not tholr hearts on It. Monday lola went to tbo Labor Day celebration at Pittsburg to got tho celebration for noxt year and to capturo somo of tlio band content prize inonuy, and she got both. Thero wore about 200 lola people In attendaneo and thoy mixed tip In everything, whooped It up for lola all thotlmo, made friends with everybody, and enmo homo sober. It had been practically agreed with Pittsburg bo forohand that if lola would turn out a good delegation and bring 'a good band Pittsburg should Ho low noxt year and let lola have tho blowout. Pittsburg agreed yesterday that lola did tho right thing and promised to coino here by tho train load noxt year. And It Is up to lola to hump herself noxt year, for Pittsburg did horsclf proud yesterday. Tho labor parado contained not less than 10,000 workmon, mostly minors from tho coalmines In tho neighbor hood. Thero were a do.en bands and tho parado marched for a tnilo through a packed mass of shouting, enthusias tic people. It was a goodly sight and overybody seemed to enjoy it. Tho band contest was hold in tho evening before one of tho principal hotels. Only four bands contested: lola, Columbus, Ft. Scott nnd Mid way. Culumbustrlcd to bar tho others for not boing union bands, but failed. Tho Midway band was largely inndo up of good players who had not prac ticed together and they lost out tho contest boing won by Columbus, which scored 1)1 points; lola ylth 88 points; and Ft. Scott with 7fi points, dividing money thus: $J0, $:i0 and $0. Each band played an overtuie and a march. Tho judges listened out of sight of tho band and in Ignoranoo of which was playing. lola lost tho first place to Colunibusby reason of a bobble which wouldn't happen again In a yoar, ono of tho best players failing by a second to come In on a solo when needed, lint tho crowd cheered lola and tho lola rooters, every mother's son of them, stayed thu concert out and rooted until black lu tbo face. What particularly tickled the lola boys was swiping Ft. Scott. At the Logrolling In Wichita Ft. Scott ac cepted a division of the $150 offored, taking $"' and Tola taking tho same, without a contest. Then sho wont homo and tho papers told how the Ft. Scott band had walloped lola. Yesterday Tola hung It on her, despite tho ac cident, thirteen points. Tho excursion en the Santa Fo re turned, leaving about 11:110 and got hero about 4 o'clock this morning. No Humboldt peoplo and but a few Chunuters went. Tho lola peoplo say all manner of nlco things about Pitts burg, that sho throw the keys lu tho river and that everything wasiordcrly, cordial and peaceful. Considerable drinking was done but drunks were few and far between. NotcH From Labor Day. Tho following Items from tho Pitts burg Headlight concerning lola and tho Labor Day celebration may provo of interest: Tho lola band went homo last night much ploased with tho result of tho band contest. Of course, thoy would have been moro pleased if they had secured tho first prbo, but then thoy woro Immensely tickled to think thoy had secured a higher grudo than Fort Scott. Lubt year, at Wichita, tho lola and Fort Scott bands lledjand tlio (Irst prlzo was divided between them. This year tho tlo was to bo played oil and both bands had been working for weeks for this contest. Tlio judges awarded tho lola b.ind 85 percent and tbo Fort Scott band 81, giving lola the socond prize. Thoy received tho nows that thoy had at last vanquished tholr neighboring city, Fort Scott, with a whoop. Tho decision of tho judges seemed pretty much tho de cision of tho croud present and that It was a fair ono. Tho lulu delegation yesterday woro badgos reading "Fivo hundred hero from Iolu. Fivo thousandwant to see you at lola noxt year." Mr, Whoitton, secretary of tho Tola lluolng association, and assistant cashier in tho Northrup bank, was a visitor who looked in on tho Labor Day doings and attended tho raeos.
