With tlie building of El Reno's
l>lg packing plant, which is now a
positive certainty, the next biggest
thing that can he accomplished for
the commercial devlopmcrU of tin*
city wi 1 be the extension of the Fort
Smith & Western railroad on to the
Southwest. One of tin- most fertile
sections of '>kl:ihom i a I of the
whole earth, , «' that matter, which
lies southwest of I'll Iteno. is almost
wholly without railroad facilities.
Enormous grain and cotton crops,]
ami 'train load after train load of
hogs and cattle are transported over
land In some Instances from twenty-
five to forty miles in order to reach
railroad stations. That the develop-
ment of Southwest Oklahoma's stock
and agricultural producing capacity
lias ju t begun, ther is no doubt in
the .minds of those who are lamiliar
with what has been done in that rich
garden spot within a few years.
The Fort Smith It Western lias for
several years had under considera-
tion the matter of extending its line
into this region. Preliminary sur-
veys have ueen run, and estimate
made of the cost of construction
clear through to a connection witli
the Orient. Mr. W. 1*1. Crane, who is
now the executive 'head ot the Fort
Smith & Western, is in El Reno to-
day presumably for no other purpose
than to make a final determination
as to the extension of the road.
Every business man of El Reno
who is Interested in this project
and every real business man should
be—Is exipected to he at the Elks
clufb house at 8:(10 o'clock tonight
to talk over the proposition w th

Some time in the cold gray dawn
of the morning after the arrival home
of the Oklahoma City Trade "Exten-
sion Boosters "Excursion of South-
western Oklahoma, a certain highly
respected citizen of the .metropolis
became suddenly afflicted with acute
Eastern Oklahoma fright.
In his fearful visions he saw
§Xea t metropolises springing up in a
single night in Eastern Oklahoma
the cause for said nocturnal sprimg-
"lng up being nothing more nor less
than the placid Auburn Arkansas,
It was a springing up that to the
fevered mind of the loyal Oklahoma
Cityan was far mare appalling than
the recent uprising of that frenzied
and essentially pyrotechnb individ-

threatened boycott of the Kiaty be-

ma points via. Galveston rate the
entire state fought that battle for
Oklahoma City—and won.
Second, .that the spirit or swinish
selfishness which the Johnson wail
evinces does more to create distrust
and hostility than all the Booster
trips ever projected can overcome.
And third, that In Its present vigor-
ous campaign for the location for
the state capital it must have the
support of one or two more towns
