The fortunes of Chandler from
this time on are in our own lianas.
It will be just what the business
men of Chandler may see lit to
make it. We have always been
in the center of the best part ot
Oklahoma; we have always telt
the advantages of being the
county seat and principal town
of this great county; we have al-
ways had the advantage of an en-
terprising and plucky P(,P«la-
tioii. Now we have the addition-
al benefit of the best line of rail-,
road and,the best markets oi any
town in Oklahoma outside of < Me-
la lioma City. We are now al-
ready centering here the cotton
trade of the leading cotton pro-
ducing sect ion. We are building"
up a big retail trade and are
making Chandler, the distribut-
ing point of the wholesale houses
for the big east side, trains ot
wagons go out of I handler
now as they used to go Ironi

building and better building in
Chandler than is being done in
any town in the territory. I he
question is. Shad 1 bis go 011.

A Scheme For Chandler.
The NEWS claims that tin
school section south of towi
should belong to Chandler and
that when it is sold the Chandler
schools should get the entire
benetit of the proceeds. Since
it joins the town, it is made valu-
able by the growth and improve-
ment of the town, and the town
should get the benetit of this in-
crease in value. ■ At present the
school section is a barrier to our
expansion on the south.
offers the most desirable location
for mills, factories, and such in-
dustries, and yet no title can be
acquired as yet and investors do
not like to spend large sums of 1
money in buildings on leased I
' lands It is but justice that this j
section of land should be given
to Chandler. The government;
is responsible for the disadvan- j
tages of our townsite. Oklaho-1
ma City was given the military
reservation for the benetit of her
schools. Why not Chandler a
like benefit? The thing to do is
for our business men to make an
organized effort in this direction;
prepare a bill covering the mat-
tei and makiig proi>er provis-
ion for the handling of the pro-
ceeds; have, it introduced in con-
gress as soon as Mr. Flynn takes
his seal: and see that it is push-
ed through and that it becomes a
law. This would not only give
the city valuable land, but would
supply the means of making our
hools the best in the territory.

A Big Hotel.
A scheme is on foot foot for
the erection of a big hotel in j
Chandler at the corner «-f 10th |
street and Manvel avenue, north
of the new Hoffman bank build-
ing. The Lincoln County State
Bank owns the corner lot, M. H.
Reeves the next lot, and liem.ng-
fon & Lee the third lot from the
corner. The plan is to erect a
building 75x1 1< feet and^ two or
three stories in height, 'l^he cor-
ner room will be used loi the
bank, while the hotel proper will
front on 10th street. This
would give us one, "I the
finest hotels in the territory!
and Ihe location would be ex-j
cellent. The NEWS hopes the 1
plan will be carried out.
No cure, no pay, that is Por
Ice and Cold Storage Plant.
It has been definitly decided
by the Pabst Brewing Co. to put
in an ice and cold storage plant
at Chandler, in time to be ready
for the business of next season.
The exact extent of the plant
cannot be learned just now,, but
it, will be til ample size to handle
the business of this part of the
teriitory in good shape. The
plant will be located on
