ACT NOW GET READY FOR GOOD TIMES
In considering the general industrial situation It Is well
to be.sr in wind that the present small consumption must
1)9 made up in the cot distant fiuure by a consumption
wry much greater than the high point reached lust year.
There is no let-up in the increase in population. With an
Increase in population of 2000000 a year with an enor-
mous increase in consumptive requirements by virtue of
Improved labor-saving machinery and modern methods
the activity of 1905-1 SOB and the early part of 1907 great
as it seemed at the time will soon be but a normal con-
dition. Our regular volume of business considering the
growth of the county must in the very near future equal
that of the period mentioned while the abnormal or spec-
ial periods of activity will run as far ahead of that as that
was ahead of 8 or 10 years ago.
City growth has only fairly begun. The great cities of
the country wiih one or two exceptions are not much
more than overgrown viilases. Municipal improvements on
a scale never seen in our country must go forward. Good
roads must bo built fit a cost of hundreds of millions of
dollars and every other line of work needed by a virile
vigorous population of 85000000 people at present to be
1030ut)000 people 10 years hence and 180000000 20 years
hence backed by resources unequalled elsewhere on the
face of the earth must go forward upon such a scale
commensurate with our naturil advantages and the world's
wonderful material progress.
Now when labor is cheap and abundant when building
material is lower than it has been for some years when
iron is down in price when machiuo shops can accept
and till orders within a reasonable time is pre eminently
the opportunity for the far-seeing man to prepare for
the future and for the hustling man or concern to secure
business. In this time of dullness and low prices when
the timid folks are unwilling to spend a dollar for fear
prosperity will never return the man of strength and
force and business ability should be putting his factory
into shape re-equipping it with the best machinery en
Urging his plant in order to enable him to produce lo the
best advantage and at the lowest cost. This is a great
time a time of opportunity for the business man who
wants lo be ready to reap his full harvest of prosperity
with the next swing of the pendulum from the present de
pression to the high water mark of the future. Nobody
need imagine for ono moment that this country will not
toon right Itself. Mr. Charles A. Moore president of Man
liing .Maxwell & Moore the preat. machinery builders and
handlers discussing the outlook for the future said:
i;n;c but in the loiti? run growth of the vountry will always
beat them." The men who recognize these facts and who
sieze an opportunity such as this are the ones who al-
ways make the fortunes of the. world.
This is the time for men who can command capital
and municipal and county authorities to carry forward
tneir projected improvements. Hundreds of thousands of
laborers are out of employment wages are low and ma-
terials can be bad at a much lower cost than last year.
Under such circumstances men who expect to build and
can secure the needed capital ought to go ahead at once
while states cities towns and counties which have planned
for public improvements should act immediately. They
would thus secure the lower cost of construction work and
help to create prosperity.
THE SCHOOL BOND PROPOSITION
A resolution passed by the school board requesting that
committees be nppoiuted by the commercial club and other
organizations interested in civic affairs to investigate the
needs of the schools is worthy of more than passing at-
tention. The idea is an excellent one and should be carried out.
While there is no subject in which people generally are
more interested than the public schools it is a fact that
few know their condition and needs from personal obser
vation. The committees suggested should be able to furnish
ho public a vast amount of Information that will be of great
The bond election has been postponed ami in the mean-
lime the entire situation should be sifted and discussed with
a view to unanimity of action when the election is held.
The board has been earnestly considering the question of
more buildings for many months and 1 heir investigations
lead them to ask for an $85000 bond issue but there were
many who belic-ved this amount larger than is required.
There is no doubt that the bond issue would have encoun
tered opposition from tnis source although in all proba
bility it would have carried but there is no reason for' any
division of sentiment on a question of this kind. . The peo
ple of Chickasha want good schools and are willing to pay
for thein. If the needs demand $50000 or $100000 thev
will vote it without and scruples about burdening the next
generation. The present generation is under no obligation
to provide all the senool facilities that may be needed for
forty years or more; it is right that the folks coining after
us should help to pay for that which will benefit them.
But the point to be emphasized and which is to be gained
by the action of the proposed committees is to unify public
sentiment insuring no opposition of consequence when the
bonds are voted upon. The commercial club is an or-
ganization (hat can put through any proposition thai
is igree upon. It embraces all classes of citizens in
its membership and the school question should be consid-
ered by them. AVhen the committees have made their in-
vestigation a joint meeting of the club the school board
and all citizens should be held and an agreement should
be reached. Let's get together talk it over and then let
every citizen stand by whatever proposition is agreed
