hi'' r K 1 . h , 14' & Yt i i M ! ft a-. m i -V W I II II 8EB008LY Kansas City lias No Kultli lu Helm's Proposition to Pipe loin tins to That City. Tho lUxnsTEii has alroady re-prlnt-cd a long article from tlio Kansas City Journal In which JooIIoira statod he was going to plpo gas from the Iola gas Hold to Kansas City for light and fuol. The Register mado tho com ment that It was all hot air and that nothing would come otit. Tho follow ing from today's Kansas City Journal shows that Kansns City docs .not tako .tho proposition seriously: "Before Joe Holm could got a hear ing on his natural gas franchise or dinance ho will havo to mako a sub stantial deposit as a guarantee. Alderman Pendcrgast, as spokesman for Mayor Reed, told Mr. Iloim yes terday ho 'would havo to put up tho browory.' " 'No moro Holm funny business goes with us,' said tho alderman. 'The last time wo had anything to do with him ho agreed to put up Si, 000. That would not havo been more than a ponny anto lntho gamo, yot wo did not got it. Tho mayor was Isold out and Mr. Holm was on his feet. Hold Ileim then that ho need never a9k tho coun cil again for a franchise, andtho same day I told tho mayor Joo would bo back in no timo again for something else. Hero ho is.' "Alderman Sawyer, tho mayor's friend in tho upper houso, said Helm had told him be would bo willing to put up $50,000 as a guarantee that tho work would bo completed within a given time after tho signing of tho enabling act. "Thoro are at least, two natural gas franchises in existence today, having been granted undor the administration of Mayor Kumpf. When Mr. Helm was asked why ho did not buy one of these ho said they had been declared byilawyers not to bo sound. Tho Kansas City Electric Light Company is operating under a 'hand-rae-r'-wn' franchise it bought fromtholate . tin Beobo and associates." Iff IT'S Gil Tlio Cherokee County Metroplis has a I'ipe Dream. Galena Times; The cty council hold a moat im portant meeting last night. Tho re Bult of tho meeting may bo far-reaching in Its effect upon Galena and th Galona-ICmpiro district. It is all but positively assured that Galena is to havo natural gas in tho very near future. Mr. McGuire, leprcseutlng a Kansas City jCompany, uppeared be fore tho council and asked for a twenty-year franchise for furnishing Galena natural gus and oil. He of fered an ordinanco granting this fran chise and tho ordinanco was placed upon its first reading. A committee, composed of J. L. Phillips, S. R. Ping and Will Schmidt, wcro appointed by Mayor McCann to confer with tho city attorney in regard to tho ordinance. Tho Kansas City company agrees to plpo gas into Galona within two years time or pay almost any forfeit the city may demand. They ask a twenty-year franchise and agree to pay tho city 2 per Cent per annum of the gross re ceipts from sales of gas and oil. They guarantee to furnish gas at a cost not exceeding 50 cents per thousand cubic inches, which Is a most liberal charge. It is hard to estimate all the benelit which Galena would derlvo from na tural gas. Tho company proposes to pipe the gas from Iola, and will agree to have H in Galena within two years. Dr. Hendricks For Coroner In another column appears tho an nouncemont'Of Dr. Herschel L. Hen dricks as candidate forcoronor before the Republican primaries and conven tion. The old resldentsof Allen coun ty are pretty well acquainted with Dr. Hendricks, but a few words of intro duction may not bo out of place for the benefit of the nowcomors.

A little over a year ago he moved to Iola and has a good prac tice here at the present timo. Bbsldes this he holds -tho position of County Health Olllcor. Ho received his edu cation at ono of tho host schools in tho west and his experience as prac tloner make him well fitted for any medical duties. Ho has always voted the Republican ticket and is a stead fast Republican. Ham Emory, wanted somo timo ago for being drunk and disorderly, and fined a total of $7.50, showed up in town this morning, was arrested and taken to jail.

At tho very entrance to tho stock yardB tonight, after all seeming dan ger had passed, George June, an em ploye of tho Anglo-American Packing Company, was struck by a baseball bat and knocked from his wagon seat. He was picked up in an unconscious condition, and It is believed, may die. Many others wero struck at the samp timo by a shower of stones, but tho police wore too worn out to offer re sistance. Moro than a dozen battles were fought during tho day between rioters and tho polico, and tho hospit als tonight aro overcrowded with the injured. Tho fiercest battle of tho day took placo thtsaftornoon at Sixteenth street and Michigan avonuc. The rioters stood on the viaduct and hurled rocks at tho meat wagons passing under neath. Tho mob was the most formid able in numbers and in daring of any of tho crowds that gathered during tho day. Before this mob could bo dlsporsed, tho' polico were compelled to use rovolvors.
