"I hate it for its heartless cruelty

KANSAS AVENUE HAS THE CALL.
If the property owners on Kansas
avenue will see that the lot designated
for the city hall is furnished upon
Ihe terms demanded by the. council
! there is little doubt that the people J
will !Hiiirni'0 rip Ilia i.-;t.- All .1.:
ue;riK equal doubtless most people
would prefer Chlekaslu avenue be-
cause of the superior advantage for
"showing off" a handsome building
but the town is building south and a
difference of one block cannot cut
much figure. A lot 165 by 105 feet
on Kansas with the hall in the center
and pretty parking around it will
make even a better showing than one
on Chickasha avenue with a lot just
large enough for the building. The
Kansas avenue proposition at the price
named is the best one before the
house at the present time and wo are
for it till a better one is offered.
The trouble with these bloomin' air-
ships is that every "once in so often"
one of them falls and kills a person

curred to the inventors to equip the
outfit with ladders or ropes on which
the air navigators could come down in
case fo accident to the machine.

Governor lianley of Iiuliaii.-" regard-

thing else .has decided to make a bit-
ter war on the liquor traffic in his
state. In addressing the Republican
state convention he s'iid recently:
"Personally 1 have seen so much of
the evils of the traffic in the last four
years so much of its economic waste
bo much of its physical ruin so much
of its mental blight so. much of its
tears and heartache that I have come
to regard the business is one that
must be held and controlled by strong
and effective laws. I bear no malice
toward those engaged in the business
but I hate the traffic. I hate its very
phase. I hate it for its hypocrisy. I
hate it for its cant and craft and false
pretenses. I hate it for its commer-
cialism. I hate it for its- greed and
avarice. I hate it for its sordid love
og gain at any price. I hate it for its
domination in politics. I hate it for
its corrupting Influence in civic af-

The Commercial Club Corner
The fnllow'ne tter from the pen of R. R. Paddock secretary of the Fort
Worth Hoard of Trade will be of interest to all citizens of Chickasha:
' Replying to yours of the 2nd nisl.-nt will say that the effect of the
establishment of the packing houses In' this city were little short of
"In Kh;1! when they were first propos-'d. our town had. almost ceased
to grow and our people were very solicitous for Its future. As soon as the
announcement was made that Ihe packing house had been secured a
new impetus was given to every industry and every line of business in
the c!ly. Real estate enhanced In value and become active: new
buildings a'.d res'dence were erected on every hand and a most phe-
nomenal !ro'v;h en.-ued "ml which is still gon on checked in a slight
degree by the recent financial depression.
"Fort Worth and its environments has more than doubled its popula-
tion and quadrupled its business since Rio;! and it attributes it largely
to having secured these industries.
"These once inldislnl brought others. "i;d the ball lias be -n kept
selling ever since.
