a business like manner that speaks
well for the future of the club.
It shows thai real and abiding
interest has at last been aroused
among the business men. There
were over sixty present and many
important matters wcro discussed
at length. The reading of the mtii-
utcs of the last meeting recalled
the fact that at the last session, the
club had deposed the old advertising
onnniiteoand appointed a new one.
'he president, W. R. Dutlon, ask-
!d why this step was taken in his
ibscnee, and stated that it looked
like a disoouttesy to the chair and
i reflection upon the work and
bility.of the old committee. Fred
.'faff, one of the most earnest work
ers in the club, in a neat but point
ed speech, tpiiekly disabused Mr.
I I)utton's mind of any suspicions or
injustice intended toward the old
committee, lie stated that the
change had been mado because two
of the old committe had never at
tended any of the club meetings and
two others had begged to be reliev
ed from the duties of committee-

ho t ''visibility of a change by as
serting and offering to prove that
xei.W committee had accomplish
ed more practical rceults in one
meeting than the previous commit
tee hat! since its appointment. The
chair replied that he simply deiired
to know why the change had been
made. Under the head of new bus-
less, L. W. Vivion urged the club
, ' . . . ..
to again emphasize to the city conn
cil the urgent necessity of better
sanitary regulations. A. T. Boys
seconded the suggestion' while 1I
Bhaw defended the attitude of
the city council, stating
that the sanitary measure which
they had passed was as strong as
law and common sense would per
tnit. Uu then, reverting to the
order of new business, spoke of the
uiagniiicant proposal made the city
by Lieutenant Colonel Randelett
to the effect that ho would reoom
mono to the secretary of the Interior
hat all that part of tho government
reserve lying west of and adjacent to
the city townsito and north of the
Otto Wells allotment, running wen
to the river, be given to the city of
Anadarko as a park. Mr. .Shaw of
fered a motion that the chair ap.
point a committee of three to tlraft
resolutsons to the Secretary of the
Interior asking that he use his in
fluence with Congress to secure the
passage of an act giving this pro
: posed park site to the city. The
motion was seconded and carried
and the chair appointed P. 1'. Shaw,
