The management of this coin-
pan.v has ever been progressive,
they have had faith In the ultimate
greatness of Oklahoma City, aiul as a
consequence, their Investments here
have run way up iuto the millions, and
the end Is not yet, for this year they
are expending upwards of $200,000.00
in improving their equipment and ex-

entire city, and we are told an addi
tional quarter of a million dollars will

as soon as the work now being doue is
A great many people entertain a very
erroneous opinion as to earnings ac-
cruing to gas and electric companies.
They seem to think that they aro coin-
ing money. While as a matter of
fact, we doubt if there is a single
gas or electric company in the
state that has been able, so far, to pay
a dollar in dividends, and a great ma-
jority of them haven't even an earning
capacity sufficient to make the neces-
sary extensions to keep pace with the
development of the cities In which
they are located. My further taking Imo
consideration the large monthly pay roll
that is paid out monthly by this com-
pany to employes, all of which is spent
in this city, one can readily rt allze
that this is one of the greatest Institu-
tions we have.
The offices of the company are lo-
cated at No. 110 N. Broadway. Cour-
teous treatment of customers Is a rule
adhered to and demanded of their
employees by the officers of the com-
pany. The officers are C. B. Ames,
president; A. S. Huey, vice president;
D. T. Flynn, secretary; K. H. Tldnam,
general manager; H. M. Byllesby &
Co., consulting and operating engi-
neers. The department heads are as
follows: Lincoln Heerbower, treas-
urer and assistant manager; credits, P.
W. Whitten; head bookkeeper, H. F.
Kl soling; cashier, G. P. Reed; chief*
engineer, E. E. Hunter; superintend-
ent electrical department, J. M. Brown;

CENTRAL DRUG COMPANY.
Among the many reliable and first
class drug stores of our city, there is
none that stands In higher favor with
our members and citizens In general
than the Central Drug Co., which Is
located directly oposlte tho Leo Hotel.
A full stock of reliable and fresh drugs
of all kinds are always on hand, and
this Is one of the very best places to
have prescriptions filled. A specialty
is made of this department of the drue:
business and expert registered phai
maclsts are In charge of this important
branch. It should always be remem-
bered that the prescription has as
much to do with tho treatment of any
ailment or disease as the physician's
care, and we urge our people to remem
ber that the Central Drug Storo is es-
pecally equipped for thlis trade. We
take pleasure in commending this
store to the consideration of our thou-
sands of readers.

NEBRASKA STORM DAMAGE.
Kearney and Vicinity Visited by Dis-
Kearney, Neb.—Several persons
were injured and probably a dozen
residences were either destroyed or
badly damaged by a tornado which
struck the southern portion of this
city at 5:45 o'clock Thursday after-
noon. No less than eight funnel-
shaped clouds formed during an hour
and passed within sight of Kearney,
but only one struck the town. Among
the houses hit by the tornado were the
residence of Elwood Jenkins, whose
wife and child were seriously Injured;
the brick residence of A. W. Bond and
the homes of Alfred Anderson, J. M.
Parr, A. P. Salgren, Henry Wagner
and 8. Nichols. Mrs. Wagner, who
was at work in her kitchen when the
storm struck the house, was blown
through a window which probably
saved her life as the house was torn
to splinters a few minutes later. It
is feared that many have been injured,
although It has been impossible to
learn details as yet.
PIONEER TELEPHONE AND TELE-
No enterprise within the city has
shown at all times a greater disposi-
tion to bo fair and liberal with its em-
ployes and the public than the Pioneer
Telephone Co. For that reason and
on account of the excellent and prompt
service which they render our people
this concern has rapidly grown into
popularity and become a leading and
most important factor in the business
and every-day life of our city. This
company has been the means of bet
t r service and more liberal treatment
of labor and the public, and their good

conservative organized labor.
Mr. Henry M. Scales was the demo-
cratic cundidate and was the choice of
the union labor voters for mayor, the
fact that he holds that office speaks
volumes for the loyal support accorded
him by the organized labor movement
at the last campaign.

OKLAHOMA CRACKER AND CANDY
We feel that we would be omitting
a most important name were we to
fall in giving proper space to the abovo
enterprising concern. Organized labor
has at all times recognized this very
deserving concern as one of their
staunchest friends. When, and when-
ever, organized labor discovers a true
riend, they use every legitimate means
possible to foster, and with that end in
view we take pleasure In calling our
members attention to the necessity of
patronizing the products of this worthy
concern. The above concern are man-
ufacturers of high class confections and
creckers. Mistletoe" Is the name of
their well known confections. They
are located at 304-06 West First street.
The gentlemen that are responsible for
the wonderful success of this very de-
serving concern are R. A. Nickerson,
prosldent; B. L. Wood worth, vice-pres-
ident, and C. A. Mason, secretary and
treasurer. The social and commercial
standing of these gentlemen are too
well known to need comment. We
take great pleasure in giving them
prominent mention in this, the initial

A.thoroughly reliable concern which
has received a splendid patronage from
our members and other readers and
one which is justly entitled to its pop-
ularity is the one whose name heads
this editorial. A splendid and unsur-
passed stock is carried and the prices
are always the lowest possible on a
first class stock of goods.
Our members should impress upon
the minds of their families the necessi-
ty of patronizing the friends of labor
at all times. No cencern Is more gen-
erally known as a staunch friend of the
cause of labor than this reliable and
up-to-date business house. Customers
can save materially by purchasing at
this establishment and we trust tnat
this store will count a steady and in-
creasing amount of patronage from our
members and friends.
The great ruling principle of this
house is that every article must be ex-
actly as represented. It Is just such
fair and liberal class of merchants
that we wish to give every encourage-
ment and patronage in their business.

to the public on the 13th day of June
as the representative organ of the or-
ganized labor movement of the state
of Oklahoma, would not be complete if
we were to omit in making special
mention of the gentleman whose name
is the heading of this editorial.
After a careful canvass of the re-
view committee of the Labor Unit we
find that they have reported this esti-
mable citizen and public official to
have been extremely frienly toward the
cause of the organized labor move-
ment. They recommend that all mem-
bers and their friends should do every-
thing possible to further his best in-
terest. In the affairs of his public
career he is known to be shrewd and
painstaking in the fulfillment of his
duties, and he is sure to continue in
the popular favor of the members of
the labor movement.
cerns whose relation with both labor
and the public are fair and Just, we
desire to call special attention to the
concern mentioned above. After a
careful investigation we find that this
Institution has never done anything in
the least antagonistic to labor, but
has, in many instances, manifested the
most friendly interest in the labor
cause, and is entitled to the co-opera-
tion of all who have the best interests
of labor at heart.
Owing to its honorable and public-
spirited methods of dealing this con-
cern has built up a large and substan-
tial patronage, and is exceedingly pop-
ular in this section.
The management comprise gentle-
men of ability and integrity who are
too well known in commercial and so-
cial circles to need comment.
Working people will make no nils-
take in giving their support to this well
known institution, and as long as Its
affairs are conducted in their present
commendable manner, we wish for it
an era of ever-Increasing success and
popularity. There is only one Keeley
Institute in Oklahoma, 1225 N. Broad-
way, Oklahoma City.

CITY DRUG STORE.
