The following players have born signed by the Fairmont club for the season of 1904: Westlake, who his pitched in the Texas and Pennsylvania leagues: Dugan. an infielder, who ivaconsidered by Cincinnati this spring: Hall, ail infielder with Ashland, Ky.. last year; Post, the Buckhannon catcher, and probably Huston, the \V. V. u. and Wheeling Central league catcher; Charley Wayman, John Hein and Bryson, of last year's team. Secretary Slack received a rep'"' from Saladin, of last season's Sistersville team, who was with Marion tit it spring. Saladin is one of the faste*' players going, and will strengthen the team immensely. He has signs! a contract. Murphy and Slack are in communication with other players and none but the best will be secured. Fairmont has joined the Protective Association of Independent Base Bill Clubs, composed of all the best independent clubs of Ohio, Northern West Virginia, Northern Kentucky and Wes :ern Pennsylvania.

The objects of the association are as follows: The protection of the iruli. pendent manager from contract jumpers, the lteejiiiig of -the players' averages in the secretary's office, and ihe filing \viui the same official the bookings from time to time. Thus in case some team needs a game on shoe notice, the manager can, by wiring to Llie head office, find out what clubs have open dates and then can wire or write to the ones tie desires to play.

It occurs to us that all j patriotic and law-abiding citizens are j equally interested with the officials of | the city in having all of the contracts . that are intended to promote the wel- . fare of the community, faithfully and , honestly carried out, and one way to , do that is for every citizen and tax- , payer to promptly contribute his just proportion of the burdens of taxation. ] Those of our people who have failed , to thus pay are making it more dlfli-' j cult for the city authorities to properly discharge their public duties, and < where this failure to pay is due to an Intention upon the part of the tax- < payer to embarrass the administra- tion, or to evade his just proportion of the public debt, the officers are, in , our humble opinion, justified in having ( recourse to the remedies provided by . law for the enforced collection of ] taxes and levies. t ?2. We therefoie respectfully call j your attention to the power that Is conferred upon you, as city collector, in the charter of Lie city, as contained in section 29, of chapter 11 of tho Acts of the Legislature of 1899. whicli said section, in part, reads as follows: "It shall be lae duty of the city collector to collect city taxes, license, levies, assessments, wharfage, water rents, and sucli -other city claims a;are i>laced in bis hands for collection by t,,e council; in case the same are not paid on or before the thirty-first day of October, -after they arc placed in his hands for collection, lie shall collect interest at. the rate of one-half per centum per month until the same are paid, and may distrain and self" thereof in like manner as the sheriff may distrain and sell for said taxe.-. and he shall have, in all respects, Lh.? ? ?amt power as the sheriff to enforce ? the payment and collection thereof,' Anrl we do further call yoiir attention to the ordinances relating to the water system of the city, in which it is pro* vided that upon a failure to pay water rents yd thin twenty (20) clays, after ^ = t me becomes due, the city authorities are required to disconnect the delinquent consumer from (lie water sys ^ iem.

Evans, who is uow on liis way from Manila to New 'York on the battleship Kentucky, tolls of being entertained at dinner by the King and Queen of Italy. The report is dated at Naples, and in part Admiral Evans says: "Upon approaching the harbor of Naples It was observed that two large French and.Italian fleets were anchored in double line outside the bronkvvater, and. upon being boarded by the harbor pilot, it was learned that the presence of the ships was on account of the visit of President houbet, of the French republic, to the King of Italy, both rulers being upon the day of our arrival in Naples. "Shortly after anchoring an ofllcor from the Italian flagship came on board and informed ine thai the French President and the Kins of Italy would inspect the French and Italian fleets at i) A. M., and requosted mo to extend the customary salt! I es and ceremonies of such occasions, which request I was glad, to comply -with. "At .S A.

M. his majesty with the President of the French Republic 0:1 hoard the Italian ship Reginu Margherita. steamed out of the harbor and inspected both 1 linos of the French and Italian fleets, the Kentucky tiring the customary salutes. About 11 A. hi., upon the com- 1 plotion of the inspection, the French President left, the MarghorUa and went on hoard the French ship Alar- ] seiilaiso. after which the French fleet got under way and sailed for Franco, the King of Italy returning to Naples. "On the morning of the 30th I was informed that the King would visit the Kentucky. AL the time of the receipt. or the message we were taking in coal from lighters on both sides ind the ship was, consequently, not in a very satisfactory condition for inspection. liis Majesty, accompanied ay the Minister of Mnriue and several attendant officers, came on hoard ibout ll A.
