Group 1, Oklahoma Bankers Attsocia-
tion End Annuul Convention With
Theater Party and Smoker
The 1910 meeting of Group 1, Okla-
homa Banker* Association, will long
be remembered as one of the best meet-
ings ever held by the nnnociation, which
anded early Wednesday morning, with
a smoker at the Elks club, in honor of
the visiting bankers.
Promptly at 1:30, the appointed hour,
the convention ronHsitmbl d.
G. G. Hostiitler, of Cuator Uity, wus
vailed for and addrossod the convention
with a few well chosen yarns, of inter-
est in banking lines.
H. D. Porter, of Sentinel, and at one
time a pioneer Hobartite, addressed the
meeting on "Trou'ilea of a New Hank-
er." He told hits troubles to the oon
vention, and ended by stating that most
of the troubles encountered by bankers
were imaginary. "You take your troub-
les too much at heart Bnd are too sin-
cere,"' he added.
K. M. Estes, of Oklahoma City, read
a paper on "Chattel Loans."
D. W. Hogan, of Oklahoma City de-
livered an address on "A Central Bank."
G. M. Fuller of Stecker, on '•High
Taxation" stated that the present meth-
od of taxing banks in Oklahoma was
unjust. "One merchant might have a
just assessment," he said, "while his
neighbor's assessment might be almost
nothing. What Oklahoma wants is
equality to all."
H. Hancock, of Blair, made a hit^
with the press boys reporting the con-
vention, when he read his paper on "Ad-
vertising." "Printer's ink pays," de-
clared Mr. Hancock. "Patronize your
home newspapers, but study your ads
to make them practical. Another im-
portant feature of advertising, is to
keep continually at it; always pass up
the fake advertising schemes. I say
stick to your home newspaper, not only
in your advertising, but also have them
do your job work, as the newspaper is
at all times the bankers friend. Cut
out freakish ads, and use advertising
space effectively," he concluded.
J. P. Whatley, assistant state bank
examiner, had prepared a paper, on
"Changes that Should lie Made in the
Banking Laws It suggested that the
state b.iuking board consist of state
bankers, appointed by the governor, up-
on the reoomtriendttion of the Bankers
Association; that the guarantee fund be
left with the banks that are assessed to
crente the hind; permit the bunk to is-
sue certificates to the amount of fund
left with the bank; cut out politics in
the banking board. While VVhatley's
paper brought forth a grunt deal of ap-
plause, it appears as if the governor had
a hand in its preparation, as identically
the same thing appeared in Haskell's
reconiuiendution to the legislature, and
appeared in ^tha state press, several
hours previous to its delivery before the
L. A. Wilson, of El Keno. "A Few
Observations." Mr. Wilson is president
of the State Bankers .Association. ,
JoeW. McNeal, of Guthrie, who
>ntly retired from active banking, nnd
a prominent candidate on the republi-
can ticket, addressed thn meting on
"Postal Savings Bank."
Thos, Hartmun made a talk on "Agri-
Following the program, the conven-
tion took up the regular order of busi-
ness, suspended the rules and elected
T. P. Martin, president; C. W. Brewer,
1st. vice-president; F. T. Chandler, '2d.
vice-president and Fred Smith, of Law
ton, secretary; Claude Prather, of Hol-
Two towns asked for the next meeting
Clinton and Chickasha, and the latter
was chosen for the place of holding the
D. 8. Wolfinger was named represen-
tative from this county.
\ vote of thanks by the convention
was extended to the people of Hobart
for their hospitality. In order that the
co ivention might bear part of the ex-
pense of entertainment, 8150 was voted
for that purpose.
This closed the convention proper, but
tickets were furnished the visitors for a
theater party at the new opera house, to
be followed by the smoker at the Elks

that l ho output of yellow metal will be
doubled if not trebled the coming sea-

"Many of the operations last season
were in ground that had twice responded
to the efforts of tbe early miners. Pierce
and his associates found wealth in the
dirt in 1859 and tbe succeeding year and
after they left the ground was success-
fully worked by Chinese miners, most
of whom returned as rich men to China,
