Except for the timely intervention

ST. CAR MEN

Lawrence Martin received a
telegram today from Col. Wood-
ward saying that Messrs. Whelan
and Seymour who left Iioston for
Chickasha a few days ago will ar-
rive on tho Frisco at ":'" to-
Mr. Whelan will take charge of

of the construction work.
Mr. Martin also received today
bills of lading for three car loads

for several car loads of rails were j
received' the first of the week.
It Is understood that Col. Wood"- J
ward has bought all the material 1
for prompt shipment and or . e-
lays In transit can postpon . .
beginning of construction work.
The colonel Is expected here in
about a week.'
Do .you want to te the best evidence
of Chickasha's prosperity and stabil-'
If you do jut take a drive over the
city tomorrow and note the number
of residences in course of construction.
You will please observe both the
number and the kind of houses that
the people are building. i
If you have lived here three or fourj
years just take a retrospect and think
how many of the handsome homes you
see were built during that time.
A little over six years ago when the
writer first hit the town there were
scarclv more than half a dozen sds-
cious modern houses in the town but
shacks were plentiful.
But. as time paed on and the peo-
pie became possessed of the idea that
they were not mere sojourners but!
f!H inhabitant of the nine thev i
began to build larger and better
During the past two years at least
1500 hemes have been built in Chicka-
sha ranging in style from the cozy
comfortable cottage with modern con-
veniences to the more pretentious res-
idences. And the home building move
ment is in full blast today. The people I
are building more and better homes i
than ever before. I
What does it mean Wise Man? It
doesn't take a very wise one to an-
swer that question.
It simply means that more people
than ever before have resolved to pin
their faith to Chickasha and are get-
ting ready to live here. It means that
Chickasha is a good place to live and
that there are business opportunities
here that hold the people.
Home building is the test of perma-
nent town prosress a kind of barom-
eter that shows how much the people
think cf a town.
Now when you add this indisputa-
ble proof of Chickasha's stability to the
prospects here for immediate develop-
ment the cotton mill the Girls In-
dustrial School the street railway and
much more you begin to realize that
we are living in a town that is rapid-
ly moving forward to the place of su-
premacy among the great cities of Ok

school building living at 1115 South
Tenth street has been having more
than his share of trouble. His entire
; family consisting of five children with
ages ranging from four to sixteen
years 'have been down with the .mea-
sles. Mr. Thannan's wife died about
two years apo. Up to the first of the
week kind neighbors alone assisted
him in caring for his sick children but
a nurse has been employed during tho
past few days. Dr. Browu who has
J been attenoding the family reports

ments and their skill with the bow Is1

The house accepted the senate amend-
ments to both of these bills and they
now go to the governor for his signa-
ture. The house also passed finally a res-
olution by Representatives Wort man
and Terral and Senator Graham rati-
fying the proposed income tax amend-
ment to the constitution of the I'nited
States. A bill by Bryan and Charles
making the attorney general ex-officio

of preparing forms for issuance of
bonds; a bill by Burnett Reeves anl

An attempt to resurrect the Yagev-
Strain gaa pipe line bill which was
Hilled in the house a week ago was
without resutU the motion to reconsid-
er being tabled. Bryan's proposed
amendment to the state constitution to
allow corporations to acquire and hold
Uind for irrigation and reclamation
purposes failed to receive a constitu-
tional majority and was killed.
The senate bill by Franklin Smith
Cordell and Fggerman creating the
office of county assessor took up the
major portion of the afternoon session
which began at 4 o'clock and lasted
until 6 o'clock. There was a strong
sentiment in the house against the bill
and an uproarotts but good-natured de-
bate took place. Jones of Oklahoma
City moved an indefinite postpone-
ment. This motion was tabled and
then he tried to kill the bill section
by section. The house adjourned with-
out taking any definite action.

All Branches of Industry
Tied Up by Gigantic
Philadelphia March 5. Between 50-
000 and 75000 union -workers on
strike; one hundred different branches
of industry affected and a renewal of
rioting in which two men were shot
was the situation which confronted
Philadelphiana early today.
The police are apprehensive as o
the outcome. With thousands of men
idle forced to quit their usual voca-
tions as their leaders allege because
of the obstlnancy of tho officials of th;
Rapid Transit company it will be an
easy matter to fan the spark of dis-
content into . flame of lawlessness.
Director Clay however has no hesi-
tancy In declaring that he has enough
men at his command to crush any up-
rising. The Rapid Transit company stated
last night that every effort would be
made to maintain trolley service. Cars
will be dispatched from all barns they
state' at as near regular Intervals as
possible and will be increased if po-
