ASKS COMMISSION FOR FARE
HIKE; WOODWARD TELLS WHY
Announcing the fact that tho
Chickasha Street Railway company
ha.i petitioned tho corporation com-
mission for an increase of one cent
In the fares that is from six cents
to seven cents Chas. F. Woodward
treasurer of the company has issued
a statement from the Boston office
of the company outlining tho rea
sons why the increase Is asked. The
The Chickasha Street Railway
company ha.3 forwarded to the Cor
poration Commission a petition for
authority to Increase the fare to sev
en cents which the management dis-
likes to do but i3 compelled to by
increased expenses. The people may
not desire thi3 increase or tho ad
vance in price of anything which
they buy but we feel that no one
can object providing they understand
the true situation.
"When we received authority to
I charge six cents last year we thought
the advance would be sufficient but
increased costs of operation more
than offset the receipts. To illus-j
trate take the three months ending
March 31 191S the last quarter with
five cent care as compared with the
Bame period this year:

July 1 members of the Chickasha
Chamber of Commerce and Chicka-
sha citizens in general have not sup
ported the organization financially.
according- to a statement issued by
Alger Melton president of the cham
ber to Wm. H. Donahue.
This statement shows that out ot
a budget of about $3500 for the last
six month3 of the year approxi-
mately $7.r)0 represents the tot.ni
that has been paid into the treasure;-
of the organization. Mr. Melton's
statement points' out that out of a
list of monthly subscribers about
i5 per cent have paid their dues this
month. Out of the list of. annual
subscribers the statement adds.
about 15 percent have jaid and out
of a list of 100 indlvfflulls and firms
of Chickasha three have paid mon
ey to the treasurer. All the indi
viduals and firm3 on the three lists
represented have received letters
outlining the purpose of the chamber
of commrce and askinK that finan
cial support be given.
Donahue Makes Statement.
"I don't know how the rest of th.
business men in Chickasha feel
about it but it i3 my idea that if ws
are to have a chamber of commerce
to boost for the Interests of Chick
asha we must support it financi
ally" said Mr. Donahue.
"There is no use in dragging
along about it. Chickasha needs an
organization of the business and
propert yinterests to further and pro
mote the thing3 that will benefit the
town generally. There is no ques
tion ahout that. The only question
now is whether the business men
and those interested in property
here want to support such an organ-
izatio with their money.
"ft we are going to have a Cham
ber' of Commerce let's give it suffi
cient cash cn which to operate. A
business man wouldn't think of run-
ning his business without an appro
priation. If he didn't supply the ap
propriation the business would have
to close up.
"That's about the size of it with
the chamber of commerce. I want
to ask all the members of the or-
gnnization the subscribers to its
upkeep and the property interests of
General and mis-
cellaneous . 328.64
"The Increase of expenses Is main-1
ly in the repairs "of the track and
line and the men's wages operating
the cars. While wages will doubt-
less not bo any hlger they probably
will not be much less for some time.
The expenses of repairing the track
and pole line will doubtless increase
as the property gets older. The
cars will surely need much repair-
ing in the near future and one or
more new one3 should be purchased.
"The commission in their order
last year said:

Last night at the First Baptist
church Rer. Sam D. Tavlor nlctnT-nrt
' the "Two Ways'
oc leading to
Christ and the other to hell and ex
plained the different methods and re-
sults of entering upon these ways
and negotiating them.
His text was taken from Matthew
T:l3 and Luke 13-24 and the min-
ister spoke In part a3 follows:
"Our subject for this sermon is
"The Two Gates Two Ways and
Two Destinies." The text naturally
breaks itaelf up 'into these three d.'
visions. In this scripture we have
the picture of a man; who has come
to the years of accountability and
must an3wer to Cud for himself
standing face-to-face with two gates
through which he Just . enters into
life. One gate Is wide and wide
open and no effoll ij required to en-
ter "into it. "The other 13 narrow
and in order to enter into it Jesus
say 3 one has to put forth Un ef
fort; more than that he must strive.
This is a strong word In the original;
and means to agonize. .;
"These two gates 'fepesent the
-choice yor rejection or 1 Jesu3 Chrlsi
as one's Savior Snd redeemer. Every
man woman and child here tonight
who has come to the years ot ac-
countability have stood before these
two gates and have been compelled
to choose between them. Pilate
stood there and the easiest way out
of it was to waah his hands and
without a struggle enter iiv at the
wide gate. It took agonizing for
Paul to enter the straight and nar
row way. A spiritual operation had
to take place before he could get
in. His sins had to be separated
from him his mind must 4 be re
newed his faith had to be wrecked
in the old : system ancT built up in
the new; his whole attitude toward
Christ and his followers Sad to be
"When you entered was your sins
left behind? Was your faith In your
own ability to save yourself
wrecked? Was it. then grounded in
Christ and Him alone? Was your atti-
tude toward the church and Christ's
followers changed? Did you quit
prosecuting the church members'
when you came in? Did you turn to

the two ways are as distinct as the
gates were. One is broad and spa-
cious easy to get into and hard to
get cut of. The other i3 narrow

there are certain inducements for
cne to enter either of these ways.
Let us consider the Inducements to
follow the broad way first.

"The county commissioner have

a county agent we can have no free

county agent to do most of the real
