I presume that every ' citizen of
Liberal knows that the Liberal Wom
an's Club has provided the city with
a free public library for several
years, assisted only by a few public
spirited citizens who have donated
books and money. This', library has
been a success in every respect bat
with its growth in size and useful
ness the burden of its maintenance
has become to' great for ..a few citi
zens to bear. They now offer to do
nate the fifteen hundred ' vdlumes
now in the library and ask that the
city assume responsibilty ' for the
RUNNING EXPENSES of the libr
ary. . This is not a proposition to build
a building nor, if it carries, would
the city be authorized to build one.
To secure a building it would be nec
essary to submit that proposition to
the voters at a later time. No voter
need fear that he is placing a great
and unjust burden on the city. The
injustice is in expecting a few citi
zens to provide for the city those
things the cjty ought to provide for
Anyone who may vote for city off

RAILROAD EMPLOYEES LOOK
FOR 20 CUT IN WAGES
According to the rumor the local
railroad employees are looking for a
20 per cent reduction in their wages
in April. The labor and railroad of
ficials will have a meeting in Chica
go beginning March ' 21st at whjch
time the. question will be discussed.
The railroad employees do not ob
ject to the- cuf providing living ex
penses come down with it. The raise
in their wages came about when the
freight rate and passenger' rates went
into effect but unless . these come
down with" the cu tm wages there
will likely be troubled 'Apparently
the railroad oficials are uot counting
on lowering the freight . rates' ana
until they do living expenses can
not .very well be lowerejd.

ship will start today according to
present intentions and the well will
be drilled to a depth of 3000 feet or
more. The well had reached a depth
of 2200 feet when drilling was stop
ped last year and it is hoped to go far
enough this time to settle the ques

found in Finney County.
The work is in the hands of Mr.
Smile, an experienced oil men, geo
logist and capitalist and he is very
well pleased with the 'conditions . in
that section. The formation is all
right and he thinks there is a good
chance to find oil.
He has the latest and most approv

can go any depth that may be re

: Oil is like any other commodity, its
price is controlled by supply and de
mand. In mid-west and Texas fields
the supply at present, is greater than
demand, hence lower prices. In Cal
ifornia the demand is greater than
supply, hence no lowering of price
