The company today will offer testimony in rebuttal, after which j it too will rest. Unless the hearing is completed to day Jt probably will be postponed in- j definitely. All members of the commis j sion. together with Harvey G. Combs, secretary, and W. TV Redding, rate ex port, will go to Memphis tonight to attend the hearing of the Memphis rate case before the Interstate Commerce Commission. It is believed that the commissioners will be absent at least a we«k. Testimony yesterday in the gas near ing was largely cumulative, and no new elements were injected. If the case is completed today it will be takn nn dr advisement by the commission and a decision probably cannot be expected until late next month.

An ap propriation of $20,000 was made by the last legislature to enable the state to fight the application, and most of the work has been done in Fort Smith in the office of Judge Joseph M.

One o ftliese was killed in the capture but four are living and can be seen a tth'1 office of the Drs Buchanan and Hirsr.

An examination of applicants for postmaster .third class, in 86 Arkansas towns lias been ordered for July 9. All examinations will be held at Little Rock and applicants are requested to secure application blanks as early as possible from W. N. Grimmett, secre tary of the Civil Service Commission, whose office is in the federal building All the examinations will be held here. Competitive examinations for first class offices is contrary to the plans of the Arkansas Republican leaders, who expected to name these offices without opposition. The appointment of James A. Ginocchio as postmaster of Little Rock was secured and Mr. Ginocchio assumed office May 15. The chances are that he will continue in office after the examination, as in all probability he will pass the examina tion and rank as one of the “eligibles.* Under a recent ruling one of three "eligibles" can be selected, and having the endorsement of both the county and state Republican Central Committees Mr. Ginocchio undoubtedly would be appointed.—Oasette.

THE BALL GAME OF YESTERDAY The Score of the Famous Game of the East vs West, was 11 to 3, Favor of the East. Yesterday afternoon quite a largo crowd of baseball fans and interested spectators witnessed the game between the East and West sides of the city. The West side was the first at the bat without a score. The East side coming to th ebat made three scores and all through the game the East side boys outclassed the West. Jack Jones who pitched for the East side, deserves a great deal of credit for the result of the game. With such fielders as Algia Dillard and Fred Fuller, how could the East side help winning for they received so many fiys from the West side (?) The West side boys did some good playing, but were just outclassed by the Easterners.
