Tho shibboleth of the campaign of
tho Democratic candldato for Gover

Up in Kansas City is a baseball
pitcher named Tom Drummy, boliovod
to be an expert. Many havo sought
him In vain. Ho was appointed to tho
Hro department and mado a chief by
Mayor Craddoek. To obtain this Tom
promised not to ask to got away to
play ball whon tho woather got warm,
Homo weeks ago Iola began working
on a plan to sccuro Tom a vacation so
ho could cotno hero and play. Mayor
Craddoek was sought In tho matter
and when ho understood fully prom
ised Chris, lllttor and John Goshorn,
local fusion politicians, that Tom
should bo allowed to get oil and come
to Iola. Mr. Craddoek camo very
noar telegraphing htm to como then,
but decided to wait and see Tom. Ho
waited and saw Tom. Then ho said
that Tom could not get away until tho
inlddlo of August at which timo ho
was suroly to como to Iola for tho
rost of tho season. Mr. Zimmor,
Craddock's right-hand man, promised
Hut after Iola had worked tho
schemo to seeuro Tom an outing, after
Craddoek and Zttninor had earnestly
assured Iola men that Tom should
cotno hero and hero alone, Tuesday's
Kansas City Star says:
"Fred Hornaday of tho Fort Scott
base balltoant In tho Missouri Valloy
loaguo is in Kansa3 City looking for
players. Ho landed "Dig Tom"
Drummy, tho Kansas City, Kansas,
llroman-pltcher, this morning, and
will send htm to Sedalta this evening
to join tho Consolldators."
Craddoek ought to join ono of his
"Do Ulght" clubs. It might do him
And horo Is tho way Ft. Scott got
Drummy. Tho ball mauagor and Jako
Shopf ard, a local politician calledon
Craddoek and asked for the pitcher.
Craddoek informed them that as ho
had refused tho same requost from
Iola ho would havo to rcfusoFt. Scott.
Shoppard then told tho Democratic
candldato for Governor that ho could
olther glvo To.i a vacation to play
with Ft. Scott or go to you-know-whoro.
Craddoek called up tho firo
chief, socurcd Drummy's vacation
and bowed tho satislied visitors out.
And tho local base-ball lonthuslusts
of tho fusion faith aro vowing that
tho falsa play shall cost tho would-be
governor 200 votes.
Tho deal was worked from the start
through polities and Craddoek prom
ised tho Allen county loaders. Hut It
seems ho thought ho would pain moro
by tickling Ft. Suott.
Clmiiute Mile Lodge No. 1I0U.
There probably novor was Instituted
a lodgo of Kilts in Kansas that started
olT under brightor auspicos or with a
greater jubilation than did Chanuto
Lodgo No.800 Wednesday night. Dolo
Rations from oight or ten Kansas lodges
were prosont at tho "borntn' " and
thoroworo llvobandsto kcepthoalr stir
rod with rousing music. Indcpondenco
Chicopeo, Parsons, Iola and Chanuto
bauds took turns at waking up tho
town anl It was most successfully
dono, tho "Hot Timo" bolng particu
larly in evidence. Crowds blocked
Main street during tho parados and
there 'voro four hundred visiting Klks
in tho city. Tho now lodgo started oil
with :i0 chartor members and tho initi
ation was performed by tho Iola team
in the Masoulc hall. Later a ban
quet was served at Floral Hall, out at
tin fair grounds. It was a difllcult
task to handle so largo a crowd but
Chanuto did Hand did It well. Tho
rapid growth of Klks may bo under
stood whon It Is rcmomborod that but a
fow years ago Iola broke In and was
rm. Chanuto Is 800. It Is probable
Kansas will havo few moro Elk lodges
for yoars as tho national meeting at
Salt Lake City nextweok will ralso tho
limit to towns of 10,000.
Klrutrlc Line Discouraged.
Tho proposod Inter-urban olectrlo
railway between Iola and Chanuto,
which was planned by capitalists of
tho two towns and which would havo
been built. If proporly oncouraged,
seoms to havo been allowed to die.
Tho flrbt work on tho linp was tho se
curing ot a franchise and right-of-way,
and tho dlty of Chanuto was ask
ed first. Tho council hommod and
hawod nnd mado conditions which
mado tho project ihazardous. Ono of
tho ldeus of Chanuto was that tho com
pana should built Its lino and then
agree that any othor lino building In
to town might uso its tracks In the
city. Whon tho company found that
Chanuto took such a straugo vlow of
tho proposition ltdocldod thatNoosho
county would probably bo oqually dif
fident and tho project has been aban
doned for tho present at least. It Is
too bad, for tho lino would havo boon
a great convenience,
