A Sound Business Proposition
How the State of Oklahoma Can Build Its Capitol Without
a Cent of Direct Taxation.
It can buy 2,000 acres of land near Oklahoma City at 1300 per acre.
The cost w ill be $600,000.
It can reserve 40 acres for capitol purposes.
This will leave 1,900 acres.
; Each acre will plat into eight lots.
This will make 15,080 25-foot lots.
■Each lot will sell for $300.
This will make a total of $4,704,000
The commissions at 10 per cent on the lot sales will be $470,400.
Other expeiices may amount to *100,000
It can pay back to the State Treasury the $600,000.
This will leave a net balance of $3,533,600.
■You would give *300 for one of these lots, wouldn't you?
The net balance would pay for an elegant Capitol.
f It would not cost any body any thing except the people who bought lots.
THE INDUSTRIAL COMPAMY OF OKLAHOMA CITY RAISED A
LARGE SUM OF MONEY TO PAY THE PACKING HOUSE BONUSES. |
k On May 19, 1009 it bought 570 acres of land.
f1 They cost $185,000, or $325 per acre.
' It was platted into 4,388 lots.
?: Lots numbering 2,275 have been sold for the sum of *632,707.50
This paid the bonus of $400,000 for the Packing Plants.
It repaid the investment of $185,000
There is a cash balance on hand of over $18,000.
There remains 2,114 lots to be sold at the book price of $528,500. And
if acreage price of these was $87,733.54
Some of the lots sold for $125, most of them for a larger sum.
Would you prefer a lot in Packingtown to one near the Capitol of the
| state? . .
If so, the Capitol lots would be worth more that Packingtown lots ana
I sell for larger sums of money.
The Packingtown proposition was a success, because the addition ot tne
packing houses to Oklahoma City made a demand for more residence lots.
i The Capitol location proposition will be a success, for the reason that the
location of the Capitol in Oklahoma City would create an additional and
far greater demand for a choicer class of lots, and they would be sold to
I supply that necessity.
Will the people of Oklahoma cast aside facts and figures such as these
listening to the cry of Guthrie, "to wait a little longer," permitting an
B opportunity thus afforded to be delayed, untill it is too late, and they
are required to tax themselves for the purpose of erecting a suitable
state house? ,
We think not—that is, if they know beans when the bag s open.
And most of us flatter ourseltes that we do.
