What Is believed to" have been an at

Citizen' Oa and Electrlo company was
mad Tuesday night by unknown parties.
The apparatus was tampered with In such
a. way that had not the fact been dis
covered at the time It was, serious damage
would undoubtedly have resulted to the
plant. The discovery that tb apparatus
had been tampered . with was mads by
Dsn Driscoll, the foreman, early yeater

meter at tha work be at once noticed
that something was amis and Investiga
tion disclosed the fact that ths "by pass"
valve and a valve In ths gasoline tank
had been opened and tb apparatus other
wise Interfered with during the night.
In Foreman Drlscoll's opinion, ths work
was that of someone familiar with the
apparatus and Interior of the building.
Officers of ths company believe that a
discharged employe waa responsible for
the attempt to wreck the plant.
The Citizens' Oa and Electrlo, company

ployed In digging trenches. Yesterday
afternoon thirteen men engaged In digging
a ditch on Avenue B and Tenth street de
cided to strike if their demand for an In
crease of wages from II. 50 to $1.75 was
not complied with. Manager Fritchman,
learning of their Intenttona, decided to
nip the strike In ths bud. When the men
completed ths work of. digging the treneh
on Avenue B, Instead of sending them to
another place to work, he Informed them
that there waa no mors work for them
at present and told them to go to ths
office and draw their pay. This fore
stalled ths men In their proposed walkout
for Increased wages.
Some of the men who had planned to
strike were seen and said that while they
bad Intended to ask for an increase to
$1.75 a day, what they objected to most
was Manager Fritchman standing over
the ditch tha entire day watching them
work. This duty, they asserted, belonged
to the gang boss and not ths manager of

mers havs Just got a good start on thslr
wheat and It will take nearly two weeks
before the crop Is finished being cut. Ths
weather that has led up to ths harvest
tlms has been as near perfect as pessible.
That It will be a marvelous crop there
I now no . question. In this immediate

Ths ost harvest Is practically finished
and ons ot tb best crops that has ever

Corn is making a splendid growth and
It Is gaining on Its stand of a year ago
at the same period, taking Into considera
