Survey for El Reno &
WANT DEPOT SITE
Proposed Road Now Seeking
Entrance to Tpwn Sure to Be-
Built Says Engineer
li Dunn locating cnginier for U19
El Reno & Anadarko electric railroad
and his corps of surveyors arrived in
Anadarko Friday after having com-
pleted the survey of tho road from
El Reno to this city as far as the
Washita river. Reaching this point
tho engineers have been compelled to
suspond tholr work temporarily until
it can bo determined at what point
the road will enter the city and
through what part of tho city it can
pass to such point as may bo selected
for dopot and terminal facilities.
There has been considerable mys-
tery purrounding this proposed road
the first that was heard of it being
the announcement in tho EI Reno
Daily American of the incorporation
of the comuany. This announcement
Ptated that tho El Reno Industrial
club was promoting the enterprise
and sxid that the question as to tho
financing of tho project had been
settled so that there was no doubt
but that tho road would be con
structed at once.
Tho next heard of it was the an
nouncement made a few days ago
that the surveyors were at work
alone tho proposed line and that it
was tho intention of tho promoters to
begin tho actual work of construction
In talking of b work aftor reach-
ing this city l Dunn stated that
tboro was' nc question about the
rohfJ being bui and that under the
terms of tho d itract it was neces
Bary that tho I prk of construction bo
begun Jan. 1 and tho road completed
and in operation within the year. He
m also stated that it was the inte'ntion
to have the lino in operation by the
time tho electric lino now building
between Oklahoma City and El Reno
was completed which would bo dur-
ing the coming summer. Just what
syndicate ia back of this company is
not known although it is suppoed
that it is a part of tho proposed net
work of electric lines which it is said
will soon cover tho Btato radiating
out of Oklahoma City.
Nothing definato has yet been done
toward securing a right of woy
trough this city or the location of
1 jnilnal grounds.
Bootlegger Claimed to Have Made
his Own Booze
A Greseck who lives nfar Hydro
and who was convicted in the County
Court Saturday of selling intoxicat-
ing liquor caused considerable amuse-
ment when ho testified that bo made
his drinks from cooked apples syrup
and alcohol. He said the first that ho
made was too strong and that it mado
a man crazy drunk so he made it
weaker. Tho officers found him with
'drinks and mado the arrest He kept
tils Bupply in a pllo of hay. Greseck
has a wife and four children and ho
is a cripple. He was sentenced to 30
lays in jail and $50 fine. Tho jury
withheld the sentence during hit) good
The Big Fight
No fistic battl - over waged in this
country attracted more attpntion in
the public prints than tho recent Tight
between Stanley Ketchol "The Mich-
igan AssaBslii " and Jack JohnBon
tbo champion of the world at CrolT-
oth'B Arouu California. No contest
over received moro spaco in tho daily
press and certainly nono overrecoived
moro brliliont word-paintings than
wcro lavished on this struggle Rut
ll tho word-paintings ovor drawn all
the fascinating description flowing
from tho pencils of the ablest scribes
fall short of the real thing tho gcru-
ine article as shown in the moving
pictures of tho fight which will b
seen at the Dreamland Theatro Sat.
Tho reporters wrote thoir best.
Thoy saw tho contest and they trans
ferred their impressions to paper.
But words nro not actualities. Tho
moving pictures are. Tho pictures
show the fight as it was fought and
all thn printed columns over written
cannot bring tho scene before the eyo
as these films do. There is tho bout
itself in actual vivid realnoss wiih
tho figures moving striking seeming
to veritably live and stand forth in
fighting llfi upon the white canvas
screon The sight is wonderful. It
is something not to bo missed and
once seen never to be gorgotten.
Many actors havo beeomo well
known and gome famous through
"Monto Cristo." Chas Fechtor aad
James O'Noil being the most noted
but in timo thoy have and must ro-
tire and give younger blood a chance.
Among tho young actors who havo as-
sayed tho part none havo been moro
successful than Mr W H Lcmlt who
is now being featured in Fred G Con-
rad's production of Eugeno Moore's
version of Dumas' novel Mr Lemle
brings youth and looks two great
essentials to an artistic impersona
tion of Edmund Dantes. This classic
romantic character requires nil the
skill of a tried artist and that Mr
Lomle is equal to the task is borne
out by the fact that Mr Conrad for
tho third season presents him to tho
public Lemle and "Monto Cristo'
will soon become synonymous If the
tho verdict of all who havo spen this
production. "Monte Cristo" will be
at tho opera house Monday
