The trip was made b I motor ear and the coal mine owner Jolted all day ou r twisting roads through Gie hill COUntr) Of Las Ani UMUI and Huerfano counties. In the course oi the day Rockefel ler visited mining camps at Louse, Lester, Ideal and Cameron. At House, in a conference With the miners grievance representative, he went on record with the uneautvocal state ment that the Colorado Fuel Iron Co. did not oppose it employes be longing to unions. As Mr. Rockefeller was leaving the boarding house at Lester, where he had lunched with a crowd of miners and company officers without having taken time to wasli the accumulated dust of a lung hot ride from his face, he was greeted by a negro miner jusi from the pit. "Mr. Rockefeller, this Is Willis Hood." said B, 3. Mattisoti, assistant general manager of the com pany. Hood, after greeting Mr. Rock efeller, recounted at some length that he had been an employe of the com pany 12 years and asked for the prom is. ,,f y pension when he had served 26 years. siH-aks t Rockefeller. think you and I will ko on a pension about the same time." smiled .Mr. Rockefeller. Later Hood met Mr. Rockefeller again and Insisted upon making a lengthy speech to him, couched in b ug words and pounded home with vigorous gestures. The negro was still talking wtien the motor cars rolled out of camp. Just at the edge of Lester Mr. Rock efeller pointed out a clump of forbid ding looking houses. "lo you see that line of sharks?" he asked. "Well, a photograph of that place was printed recently and the hotlSes credited to the Colorado Fuel & Iron Co, As a niatr of fart, only a few of the near, er are on our land nt all, and they were there when we bought the prop erty. We are arranging to buy them of their owner and tear them down. The rest of the settlement Is on the property of another coal mining com pany." At Cameron Just before entering Walsenburg Mr. Rockefeller made a minute examination Of a new club house and several homes of the min ers. On the edge of the town of Walsen burg Mr. Rockefeller inspected the big W.ilsen mining camp.

Describes Occident Before setting off the second blast Messanotte said he took the usual precautions. Including the sending out of flagmen to stop traffic, and when this was done he gave the signal that the blast he fired. "In three or four seconds." Mcz- sanotte stated, "the deck i wooden pavement i began to go. It started where the blast went off and rolled away like a wave. 'Tho street then sank In." he add ed, "but no debris was blown in the air." The sound paralyzed his senses. Uessanotte said. He thought scores had been killed when the street car fell Into tho excavation. When he recovered he ran from the place.

Moroney Points Out the Danger of Failure. gptolsl u The World. m, ytj i SKI IGKK, Sept, 23 H r inalned 1V1 for the Okmulgee Demoorat to supply the strongest argument yet advanced against the proposed bond issue in this city to install a munici pal gas plant, while endeavoring to detract flum the arugmentl against it. Colonel J. J. Moroney, editor of the Okmulgee Democrat, was for years in the employ of the Standard nil company during the days that the great octopus was at the senitfa of its reign and Is thorough!) familiar both by training and actual experience with all its devious methods. Ho says that unless the conserva tion gas law pussi d bj the last Okla homa legislature is upheld by the courts, of which there are many doubts, that Muskogee's municipal gas plant n null not last a year us the gas monopoly would immediately enter any field which the city might dis cover and put It OUt of business be fore It would get fairly turned around. Then on the oilier hand if the law u upheld and gas has to be prorated the city would bo still equally at the mercy of the mo nopoly. So while knocking the gas monop oly at every step and expressing the most friendly interest In the success of tho Muskogee scheme Colonel Moroney supplies the very best argu ment against tin; proposition that has yet been offered, but winds up by de claring that the opponents of the, bond Issue date not use it. Contin uing, colonel Monroney says: "There was but ono town In ull Ohio of any considerable size that won against the monopoly, and that was by a series of peculiar fort m ale events which favored Flndlay and al lowed her to enjoy an immunity Which Toledo did not. And In the yean finally even Flndlay was trimmed out of her advantage by the landing In office of a bunch of ''bus iness men" politicians, which Is lo say, officeholders after the gas mo nopoly's own heart, a b'ineh that sold the city gas plant out. Tho history of Toledo's venture will he the history of Muskogee's, too, If the law which Is on the hooks does not stand up to protect her against the assaults which tho monopoly will make upon her. This ts the one menace which stands In her way to success." With evidence of this kind from this source It would seem that no further nrgument ought to ho neces sary to defeat a scheme admitted by even Its warmest supporter as dls tlned to certain failure. Surely If Muskogee Is anxious to twist the tu 11 of the gas monopoly this is no way to do It. Tho people of this city will be skinned out of their money with out doing a particle of damage to the gas coi.cern. Lord Heading, representing Britain ami France, and .1 I'.

If that Is Hie plan and purpose of Ihe board, surely this S3t, I of unused interest on the bonds Collected in taxes last v,ar Would buy quite a large Oact of suburban property, one sufficient Iv far out so that the high school pupils would get plenty of physical training In going to and from Hi'' school, as we I as manual train lug after they got there. An agricultural department might also be added to the high school, where milking, churning and che. making oouid tie taught. Under such conditions the high school pupils would be , Dtlrety rt moved from all city Influences, The 3e,000 the school board new has on hand In excess of the amount they were authorised to spend would be sufficient to buy quite a respectable farm in the ml urbs of Tulsa. W'e simply offer this as a suggestion worthy of the consideration of the school board, and in keeping with their apparent policy of econotn y, If the members of the school board are fooling themselves with the idea that the public will look upon such conduct on their part as efficient public service, The World begs to assure them they are deceiving themselves. The present delay on tho part of the school board in proceeding to erect a new high school build ing on the present site Is inexcusable and unjustifiable and will not Succeed in fooling even a most gullible public. This sort of discharge of a public trust will not he long tolerated by the citizen ship of Tulsa, and the present members of the school board will soon discover that they have been welgheil in the balance and found wanting. At the time O.is half million dollars in bonds were voted and the expenditure of the funds authorized by the taxpayers. It was distinctly understood that the new high school building would he erected on the present high school site. No hint or suggestion was given at 'he time this election was held that there was a necessity to change the site, either because It had become tOO valuable to be occupied for school purposes, or In anywise unfitted for the same. No suggestion of either selling or renting the present high school site was mile by the board, either before or nt th" time the bond Issue was being considered. But as soon as the bonds were voted and their issues authorized, a plan was proposed by the school board, not l.y any of the school patrons, to change the location of the high school and either lease or sell the present site. The leasing plan was tried and proved a miserable failure, and now It Is proposed to sell at least a part of the school prop erty and change the high school site to some place, no one seems to know where. And so the matter has dragged on until the present. With the npproarhlng winter season the possibility of having a high school available this year vanishes, and the high school children must go on for another year with their confessedly Inadequate facilities; for it. 1 Ihe report fr Hint the mobilisation poned.
