COTTON WAREHOUSE IS NOW ASSURED

The Farmers' warehouse will be
ready for occupancy before October 1.
All that prevents the work of build-
ing being in progess todav is the fact
that needed material has not yet ar-
rived, but it is on the way, and work
will be in full swing by the first of
The business men of Pauls Valley,
with very few exceptions, have liber-
ally subscribed to the building fund to
assure for this city a cotton warehouse
that will have no equal in this district.
The building will occupy a conven-
ient site adjoining the compress, and
facing the railroad. It will have enor-
mous capacity for cotton storage and
every facility for making quick ship-

If the Pauls Valley Commercial club
were to cease existence today its suc-
cessful promotion of the cotton ware-
house would mark the one achieve-
ment that should for years be recalled
as a great work well done for this city.
While Pauls Valley has in a some-
what limited way been the leading
cotton market of the Chickasaw nation
it has not enjoyed the full measure of
the traffic that its advantages deserved.
Heretofore the one setback in hand-
ling the cotton crop in this city has
been the lack ol sufficient storage
The new warehouse remove*, that
one disadvantage and Pauls Valley now
takes her rightful position at the head
of the cotton trade procession in the
Chickasaw nation- From Paoli on the
north, from Lindsay and Maysville, to
the northwest, from Antioch and White-
bead on the west, Byars and McGee
to the east and Wynnewood to the
south, and from such thriving districts
as Elmore, Foster, McGee, Okra,
Kiser, Klondike. Robberson, Brady,
Walker and Purdy, the major portion
of the cotton crop will find its way to
the Pauls Valley market.
The cotton warehouse is something
to jubiliate about.
C. B. Sipes, J. T. Jones and George
Rennie constitute the Commercial
club commitiee that raised the fund.
Walnut Timber From
Pauls Valley for Europe
A. G. McLaughlin of Austin, Texas,
representing the Southern Walnut
Lumber Company, the largest exporter
of fine grained hardwood in the south-
west, was in Pauls Valley this week
and purchased two carload of walnut
logs. The timber was sold by W. P.
Wade and S. M. Conger.
The logging of walnut is a growing
industry in this section and the prices
paid for fine grained timber make it a
The purchase made by Mr. Mc-
Laughlin comprised massive timbers
from which planks three feet in width
can be cut. It was shipped from this
city to Galveston, thence to Hamburg,
Germany, where the timber is cut into
planks and strips for veneer work.
In the log it brings $20 to $60 a
thousand. After polishing, part of it
^finds its way back to the United States
being imported by cabinet workers,
and makers of fine furniture.

The congressional district central
committee met in the Commercial
Club room last Monday and decided
upon the foregoing.
Momon Pruiett of Pauls Valley was
elected chairman of the central com-
mittee, and will give his indefatigable
efforts to seeing that a primary is held
in every precinct in order that the
candidate chosen will be the true re-
presentative of the party. W. M. B.
Mitchell of this city is permanent sec-
retary of the committee and J. E.
Burch, Jr., of Whitebead is treasurer.
The campaign committee, which
with chairman Pruiett comprises Frank
rfiley, Paoli, A. J. Carter, Lindsay,
Dr. B. Ward, Purdy; N' B. Spearman,
Elmore, will have full charge of the
Owing to the fact that the Oklahoma
primary law proves impractible to con
ditions in the Indian Territory the
committee was compelled to devise a
form of advisory primary for choosing
a candidate, and the plan submitted
by the state central committee was
adopted with the exception that in-
stead of adopting the plan in its en-
tirely it was so amended that the

gate to the congressional convention will be held next J hurs-

will be held in this city probably the Saturday following.
candidate receiving the highest num-
ber of votes throughout the district
will be the party nominee. In each
precinct delegates will be elected and
these delegates pledge themselves to
vote in convention for the high man.
The fight for the nomination is a
keen one. E. E. Alkire, one of the
leading democrats of Lindsay, has en-
tered the contest and promises to give
the other candidates a close run. R.
T. Jones and Milas Lasater are the
Pauls Valley candidates. Each has a
number of earnest friends working for
him, and both claim victory. All are
good men and each wants the nomina-
tion to go to the man who receives
one vote more than half of the total
cast by the democracy of this district.

were the following; Moman Pruiett,

There was no uncertainty about last
Friday night's mass meeting. Every
man present knew what should be done
and little trouble was encountered in
preparing for actual accomplishment. g

of the contributions offered to the

H. M. Can followed with a forcible
address in which he detailed the many
reasons that Pauls Valley citizens had
for needing a competitive road, calling
particular attention to the discriminating
freight tariffs and poor train service
afforded this citv in return for the
amount of business it gave to the Santa
Fe. Mr. Carr called attention to
Guthrie and Oklahoma City as examples
of what could be accomplished for a
community by enterprising citizens
and competition in railroad service.
Mr- Hickam exhibited a map of the
proposed route of the K. C. L. & P.
and it was eagerly examined by those

have been closing up legal arrange-
ments that will permit of actual con-
struction work as soon as right-of-way
questions in several localities are set-
tled. This includes the absorption ol
the Midland Valley system.
When Mr. Hill returns and this city
he will find that he did not underesti-
mate Pauls Valley's public spirit.
