South Tenth street; and fourth ward W. K. Stone's Garage, -orner of Conley avenue and Hill street. The election tomorrow which will de cide whether or not a one-mill tax will jie levied for the establishment and up keep of a public park S)sem ha been called a a result of a petition signed by A'iO Columbia citizens. Only 150 signa ture were required to call tbe eleclion but an additional 200 citizen signed. Of the 332 pcr-ons asked to sign the peti tion only two refused. All Columbia residents not under 21 )car old are eligible to vote in tomor row" election. A majority of the vole cast h'iII lie ncves-ar) lo defeat or pass the measure. Ma)or Gordon recently made clear that the election tomorrow i not one at which the voting public will have an opportu nil) lo accept or reject an) specific park site. Under the term of the measure, provided it is pa ed, a park board of nine members will be appointed b) the Ma)or with the confirmation of the City Council. This board will have charge of the paik fund and the final word in the acceptance or rejection of park offer mule now or in the future. be nark made to the city. Thi is the c-fer of tudre J. A.

The gen- cral impr.ssion of those who aw the grounds jesterday was favorable. The park propnsiiion appears to be better supported on the eve of election than at an) time before. A former mem ber of the City Council, Virgil Hawkins, when a-ked for his opinion on the park quc-tion said, "I had not eipected to vote for ihe park proposition, but after looking over the land which has been of fered free to the cily I shall support the measure, for the ground is very prett), well located and will make a beautiful park or pla)grounJ." S. F. Conle), of the Boone Count) Tru-I Comjian) said that Columbia mast have parks. He pointed out that Colum bia wa- the onl) cit) of its class in the whole state that was without J public park. With regard to the Stewart offer Mr. Conley said that he believed the city should accept it as it would be the be ginning of a park sy-tcm. Mrs. J. D. 'an Horn, 1614 Amelia street, said: "I am in favor of the park proposition and I think that the mothers in Columbia should support it for it is much better to have children pla)ing in a suieni-ed park or plajground .than pla)ing in the wood. S. C Hunt of the Boone County Trust Compan) said that il was his opinion the voters of Columbia would make a big mistake if they did not accept the offer for a free park. The propo-ed site he said is well located and would make one of a -cries of Iieauliful parks that Co lumbia should have. J. S. Ilicknell. cit) clerk, has estimated the revenue which the cily would derive for park puro-es from the one-mill levy if us-ed at $10,2o0. Local contractors sa) this would pay the initial cost of a park and provide for the upkeep as well. Lions Club Visits Light Plant.

Providence, and Rocheport, town which then were heralded as the coming centers of west ern industr), but which now lie sleeping, the silent reminder of a period that ha passed. The westward rush left them like the back water of a stream, quiet and undisturlied, and now the through train merely whistle and pas them by.

She lay there twenl)-four hours and everybody ru-hnl down to see what she'd brought. In those days the whole town would turn out when boat landed.

The Railroad Labor Board has promised to reconsider the $30,000,000 wage rut, which went into effect July 1. The? unions maintain that the cost of living has gone up and that a new wage scale should be worked out. The striking shop craft employes claimed a long hand here today follow ing the refusal of the maintenance work ers to strike and the burning of the strike orders. The railroads are continuing to hire strike breakers. There has been very little violence between the strikers and the strike breakers. A few clashes have been reported here. We are able to stand on our own feet, said B. M. Jewell, head of the six shop crafts "We would rather settle this af fair with the railroads ourselves rather than to draw the other unions into the controversy. If the maintenance workers have found the best way out of the sit uation we have no complaint, but the shop crafts will not return on the terms on which the maintenance men accepted.
