Dear Sir: The trustees of the Fair

pay 15 cents a gallon more for Devoe;
and no wonder. Two other paint agents
said it would take 150 gallons of their
paint to cover the buildings.
Our agent put it at 125 or less. It
j We saved them 35 gallons of paint
J and painting (worth $4 to 55 a gallon,
: as the painting costs two or three times
i as much as the paint) less 15 cents a
gallon on 115 gallons. Say $140.
That's how to count the cost of paint.
The cost of putting it on is $3 or $4 a
gallon. You see what that means. Go

THE RILEY HAS
Visits ihe Room of Ghas.
Wilkins, and Secures
Hothing for His .
Left night, while quietly sleeping in
his room at the Riley Hotel, Chas.
Wilkins, the cigarmaker, was awakened
by someone breathing in his face and
bending down over him running his
hands under his pillow, as if in search
for something. Mr. Wilkin3 lay on
his back with his hands under his head,
when he was awakened. He layed
quietly, as he was in a position that
the intruder, whoever he was, could
keep Mr. Wilkins pinned down, so he
could not move, and it being in the
darkness, Chas. could see how easily it
would have been for the person to have
slugged him and no one be the wiser.
He, therefore, wisely remained quiet,
and after not finding anything, though
Charley had his watch under his pillow
and his head rested "directly on it, the
man did not get it. He therefore looked
through some clothing on the wall and
finding nothing therein climbed out of
the window as he bad entered. The
window out of which the intruder
climbed led to a gravel roof in which is
located the skylight which lights the
dinning room. Mr. Wilkins had placed
his clothes, which he had warn yester
day, on a chair, and thrown his union
suit thereon and the burglar thinking
that there was nothing else there but
the union suit, did not investigate, and
missed the money which he had in the
everyday garments. These burglaries
which are getting common, and the
circumstances which surround them,
savors of local talent and. liable to get
the artist, who has gotten the matter
down, as he thinks, fine, in to seiipus
trouble be for many moons.

wb.en a 'Woodland car was hold up 0:1
Ontario street, and the moiornuin and
conductor attacked. The police dis
persed the rioters. The burning (f a
Clifton boulevard car in Lakewood was
tfce most serious riot of the strike. The
car was going toward the western ter
niiual -when it was stepped by" a log
being thrown across the track. It wa
the first effort to operate a car in Lake--wood,
and the car carried no passen

As soon as the car stopped it was
surrounded by a crowd of rioters who
were hidden behind a rail.way bridge.
Immediately the crowd began shooting
at the members of the crew and
guards. The latter, W. J. Eames and
John Swanto. returned the fire. All
told over thirty shots were exchanged.
While the shooting was in progress th'
crowd grew to nearly a thousand. An
other car arrived, and its crew and
guards joined in the fres-for-all fight.

The members of the carmen's union
have begun a series of meetings for
the purpose of arousing sympathy, and
to appeal to the public to refrain from
using the cars until the union wins
the fighL At these meetings the propo
sition also of petitioning the city coun
cil to order a public vote as to whether
tb franchise recently granted, anfi
under which the Municipal Tractiorj
company Is operating, shall become ef
fective.' This proposal Is based upon
the new Initiative and referendum
law, enacted by tbe state legislature
a few weeks ago. The petition will
make It obligatory on tbe council f
submit the matter to a vote.
The movement was started by th
strikers. Over 10,000 petitions have
been printed. It Is regarded by the
union men that public sentiment re
garding the railway company now Is
of such a character that they will hav
no difficulty Sh obtaining the signa
tures to the petitions. The vote, rtiouKl
It be against the franchise, It is al
