Anadarko is easily the first city
in the new country in progress, fi
nance, morality, and good society.
It will only bo a question of time
until we arejirst in point of popu

fore we are iirstin point of area, and
right there, to lino a common ex
pression, is where we shine, llobart
is not as large as Anadarko and can
never hone to be for it is in the
shortgrasH country and its surround
ing territory will never piodueo
such crops as this far famed valley
of the Washita. It is situated on a
bleak uninviting prairie and nine
times out of tun the fiit look at
their townsite will discourage, any
one but a Kantian. .So much for
To our south is the over grown
. balloon city of Lawton, and like a
balloon, it will collapse when the
speculative gas is withdrawn from
it. It has nothing like the natural
resources of Anadarko, andtheagri-"Hnlmral-tcrritory

hofortile acres that 'Spread in all'

These items alone are enough to
convince the homeseeker that our
city is the coming metropolis.
Now here is our clinches for this
S lpply and demand arc the great
and only price regulators. A large
supply and and small demand reduce
values, and a large demand coupled
with a small or limited supply -end
values soaring upward.
llobart is already troubled with a
plentiful supply of vacant residence
and business lots and a decreasing
demand for the same, hence she may
bo counted out of the race for first
place, leaving this city and Lawton
to struimlo for the suprcineey. The
price of lots in Lawton raised from
the opening day by jumps and
beunds until tho people went prop
erty mad and bought until now the
conservative real estate men state
that values are 20 per cent too high
and that they will have to come
down. Whci they do begin to de
cline, the speculator will get alarmed
and commence to unload his hold
ings, until a voritablo panic could
be possible. Anadarko on the con
trary has had no boom but a steady
growth, values only keeping pace
with'Mie improvements, and inves
tors , lc,avo their inonoy here after
visiting both llobart and Lawton.
Even admitting that the real ornate
value arc only normal in Lawton,
thoy must still face tho certainty of
a docl'me, for fat tho expiration of
fourteen month's Mr. Woods will
this city grow a foot except by a
special act of congress, which could
not be attained under live years.
We know that the demand will con
tinue to increase even though slow
ly, while it is and always will be
Thus the action of the natural
law of supply and demand will 'coop
property on a gradual but conserva
tive advance steady progress and
these self apparent facts will invite
capital, to come here, and confidence
will exist among all classes. Busi
ness interests will be protected, and
goo'd values will give ample city
revenue for improvements. All of
those combined conditions will dove
tail nnd form a unit, tbatiiuit being
Anadarko, the unsurpassed and in
comprehensible city on the Washita.
