Judge Shackelford of Stonj&r
Webster and John T. Bibb of the=
Tacama Grain company called on
Mayor Seymour Tuesday morning
seeking some way out of the lto*
in which they find themselves by
reason of the violation of the
franchise of the Seattle-Taroma
Power company in furnishing
electric light to the Bibb mill.
Bibb seemed much alarmed lest
the city would not have powftr
enough and did not want to give
consideration to the suggestion of
the mayor that the easy way out
of the difficulty is for the mill to
take both power and light from
the city.
In the absence of Commission
er Lawson the mayor refused, to
negotiate any compromise.

Although spectacular from the

because Teddy \ Tetzlaff, .the . fans',

contest by \ accident. Tetzlaff led
the :field"- from 5 the \ first 5 lap until
the . seventh, when 7he B changed
tires. He gained second place
again, '% but was forced %to g drop
out in the 14th when his oil pump
broke completely off. Burman, in
