Site Hoard to De
cide This.
The polls for the special park election
which is to be held tomorrow will open
at 6 o'clock in the morning and will re
main open until sundown. Polling place
will lie located at the following places:
fir! ward. Brown's Confectionary, 702
North Eighth treei; second ward, Boone
County Courthouse: third ward, base
ment of the Flks lodge. 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

Council. This board will have charge of
the paik fund and the final word in the
acceptance or rejection of park offer

viewed b) ino!orits wlio drove west on
Stewart road and came back along the
north boundan on Broadna). 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.

Rocheport Resident Recalls
Glory of Old Steamboat Days
In these day of radio, vitamine, and
ran-continental motoring, who talk of
the old steamboat da) on the Missouri
River? Yet, between Kanas City and
St. Louis, sixty )ears ago, steamboats
long since forgotten except by a few old
settlers, plied the muddy, restless waters
of the Missouri and stopped al booming
town like Old franklin. 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.
But there wa a time, and Jack Hen
ley, one of the old re-ident of Roche
port remember it welk when steam pack,
el landed ever) da) where now onl) the
Ajgut Wohlt f err) boat waits to carry
tourist across to Overton. Sitting on
the porch of his little gra) home in
Rocheport and looking out toward the
liver, lie can sec them all in bis imagina
tion just a the) were when they used
lo pas b) on their way ea-t to St. Louis
or west to Kansas Cit) and the Dakotas.
There was the llonrna, owned by the
Dozier of Si. Loui. the Florence, the
GciM Dun, which wa the large! one
afloat, the Dakota, llie Durid R. I'ourll,
the llitffington, the Kate Klnner, named
for ( jwlain Kinnev of Roonville, the ,lm-
nehaha, the Belle ol it. Louis, and the
Old GlaSjioK, all of them averaging 300
feet in length and 70 feet in width. It
wa on the Old Glasgotc that Mr. Henley
and hi wife went for their honeymoon,
back in the seventies.
"Fitted up like a palace she wa," he
said rcmini-ccntly as he watched the un
romantic ferryboat start back from Over
ton with it load of louri-ls, "white enam
el and gill trimmings everywhere, while
coated waiters in the dining room, and

f But we got loose, and a-ide from the
women making a racket, nothing came
of it.
"Down there," he continued, pointing to
where the river touchrd the end of the
street, "is where the Dakota came in from
the North with the finest cargo of skins
you evet saw. 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. Once a passenger coming
up from Kansas City aked the captain
as they were nearing the town how big a
town Rocheport was. and he replied,
'Wait till we get there; they'll all be

At night hundreds of fireflies play
around Jack Henley's house, a dim light

TO RECONSIDER
RAIL WAGE CUT
Unions Maintain Cost of Living
Has Risen Wage Scale
Should Be Made.
4r ViuUd ftnt.
Chicaco, July 5. 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.
