BUILDING ERA OPENS.
Many Delays and Obstacles
Overcome and a General
Era of Building is
MANY CONTRACTS SIGNED UP.
The past few days have
brought to focus many arrange
ments and partial arrangements
for building a number of houses,
both business and residence.
It has been talked all summer
that the early fall months would
witness the opening of a general
era of building in the city, and
many were becoming anxious as
to the results of the matter, but
the letting of a number of con-
tracts and the work actually
started upon several buildings
has relieved that anxiety.
Within the past week the con-
tract has been let for the Burr-
Large building 25x100 feet, two
stories, adjoining the Hirt Stew

meeting of the democratic club.
Wynona democrats are among
the best organized on the resorva

work. There was a good attend

body gave evidence that the
questions how so prominently
before the public were being con-

Arrangements are being made
to nominate candidates for dele-
gates to the constitutional con-
vention and all citizens should
interest themselves in securing
the very best men within the
party. But under the present plan
of nominating candidates such
results will be hard to attain, es-
pecially in Osage county where
many people live in remote parts,
a days drive to Pawhuska, who
can not and will not spend the
time to attend the convention.
In this case thc people will not
be represented and a couple of
machine candidates will be forced
upon them. We claim a better
way would have been to have
waited until commissioner Dial
had announced his voting pre-
cincts and then sent qualified
delegates instructed or unin-
structed to a delegate convention.

coming and in that they hold
the key to the solution.—Osage

ple was here Monday to ascer
tam what Pawhuska would do in
the way of assisting it to
build. A meeting was called for
the evening and Mr. Gillespie ex-
plained about what they expected
from the town.
Messrs. J. W. McNeal and W.
A, Humphreys, of Guthrie, were
present and both talked a few
minutes upon the benefits to be
derived by securing the road. In
fact they were boro to confer
with Mr. Gillespie us to securing
the road for their town. Mr. Mc-
Neal stated that Guthrie had dur-
ing the last few years gone into
her pockets for $300,000 to secure
new railroads, and that they did
not consider they had lost any
It was the sentiment of the
meeting, and has been the senti-
ment of many of our people for
some time that Pawhuska must
have this road or some other one
covering about the same route,
and the first one ready to do busi-
ness is the one she wants.
Dale Lytton and C. M. Mc-
Graw, of Stillwater, were here
also to confer with Mr. Gillespie.
Their town wants to secure this
ine and are actively endeavoring
;o land it.
A motion prevailed that, the old
committee having this matter in
charge he retained, and that T.
H. McLaughlin, A. S. Sands, C.
N. Prudom and H. Norrick be
added to the committee. This
committee will ascertain what
the property holders of the city
will do by w^ay of donation.
