ities of Graft
Lawton, Okl., Nov. 20, Lawton
is to have mueh stfeet paving in tho
near future. There will be no chnnao
for graft in this score, as outside con
tractors will have to compete with
local busines men who proposo to mine
their own ashpalt, with which to pave
the streets. Already the machinery
for miir? this vnluable product is
being p.iced. Tho asphalt in this
section has been declared by experts
to be the equal, if not much bettor
than most of the material used in
other cities by the big paving com
panies. It is proposed to use tho
homo product in this city at all times
in the future, where possible.
