The proposition as submitted to the
people of this city by Charles B
Hervey on the night of March 10 of
the present year at the annual ban
quet gIven by the Chamber of Com
merce went through last night with
a dash and an enthusiasm which
showed < most satisfactorily just what
kind of citizens constitute lhj popu
lation of the Deep Water City when
the remainder of the 150000 < i
ed to complete the project was rais
ed through the enterprise and tits
perseverance of those who had iden
tified themselves with the movement
from the outset and who had stood
by the city and her pet proposition
until success had crowned their ef
forts Charles B Hervey was pres
ent being intvoduced by Chairman
John K Stilmian He impressed
Pensacola people once more as to
his business ability and later won

to get busy in the most energetic
manner possible however and en
thusiasm knew no hounds whan at
the expiration of httrV more than an
hours time the work had been ac
I complished and Pensacolas half mil
lion dollar project had become a thing
of reality Those who had worked
hard and enthusiastically from the
first together with those who had
maintained an attitude of conserva
tism were frankly pleased with the
outcome of the issue and were not
backward in showing it Pen acola
enthusiasm the real brand of the real
thing was in evidence in the Brent
hall last night and there were few
who participated in the general feel
ing which prevailed who will not be
better citizens for such an expres

What Was Done
The meeting of last night which
was held in the public hail btcated in

of three years Possessing unlimit

and imbued with the energy ol

Mr Hervey was successful in putting

the matter before the people in a
I most logical manner He cited other
places which had literally been made
by the inauguration of good hotel ser
