clerks, we as clerks desire to be
of the greatest possible value to
our employers and believe that
we can put more energy in our
business and get more out of life
by having a uniform hour of clos-
ing and we state the following as
First—Just as many goods can
be sold in less time with less cost
of lights and with less strength
and vitality expended on the part
of employers and clerks.
Second—The long hours which
many clerks put in soon causes
to lose more or less interest in
Third—Many of the clerks and
their employers are interested 111
various social events and must I
be deprived of many home and I
social privileges where long
hours of opening are observed.
Fourth—The merchants have
been considerate in giving clerks
an occasional night off, but this
is often inconvenient and works
a hardship on those who remain;
therefore we submit for your
most indulgent consideration the
following proposition, viz:
That all business houses close
promptly at 8 p. m. except Sat-
urday, during the month of
August and at a reasonable houi
to be agreed upon thereafter.
This article to take effect Mon-
day, August 0.
We believe that with the as-
sistance of the clerk's union that
this can be accomplished, as the
majority of towns the size of ours
All matters concerning the
early closing hour can be agree-
ably adjusted if the merchants
will but indulge us in our request.
We realize that some of the
merchants who have living rooms
connected with their business do
not require their clerks to work
nights and do not mind keeping
open. While this is true 111 a
few cases the other 5U clerks of
the town will greatly appreciate
their kindness in closing with the
other merchants in order that
the other stores will not be com-
pelled to remain open.
Our organization has no other
aim than the best good of
merchants and we humbly pre-
sent this matter for your kind

Robber Shot Dead by Men He Sought
There has been much robbery
and a murder or two at Lawton
the past day or so. Saturday
night 011 the outskirts of the
tented town, one man sought to
hold up two others. The latter
shot him in the head. A restau-
rant was robbed and the proprie-
tor assaulted. On the Rock-
Island grades a man was held up
and relieved of a large sum.
While another man peacefully
slept on his cot is a rooming tent
a man entered and took his gun
and all his money. Only a few
days ago a man was found with
his throat cut from ear to ear.
There is much of this sort of
thing, though the attempt to sup-
press lawlessness is diligently
