Council Unable to Arrive at Defi
nite Conclusions Mr.O'Neil
The council at its special mooting
Monday night was urnblo to arrive at
any definite conclusions in regard to
the'existing contract with the O'Neil
Eng'nuering Co. for the construction
of t'-t' proposed dam across the Wash
ita rive nd the iim'ovotrnnts and
extension of the water and slctric
light systems. R. L. Goodman, the
secretary of the engineering company,
was present, but he did not have all
of the information regarding the plans
of construction for the dam that the
council desired, and at his suggestion
me conucii aujourneu to meet again
Tuesday night, at which time Mr.
Goodman promised to have Mr. O'
Neil here with the necessary plans
Mr. Goodman stated that tho com
pany desired to ask that the council
ask for the voting of $7,000 for
sewer extensions, $14,000 for electric
light equipment and $03,000 for water.
In addition to this the company
thought the city should vote nn ad
ditional sum sufficient to make the
total bond issue for the sewer, elec
tric light and water amount to $95,
000 in order to provide for ony emer
gency that might arise.
He explained that the $G3,000 in
cluded the $20,000jwhich was the esti
mated cost of the dam. He believed
that the dam could be constructed for
this amount, and possibly less should
all the conditions be found favorable.
However, some conditions might be
found to exist, when work was begun

It was not satisfactory to the major-

oodman stated that a contractor

rial and workmanship and construc-
n methods were concerned tho O-
ilcompany could not fully guarantee

Two Rock Island Trains Meet
on Same Track
Two Rock Island freight trains at
tempted the impossible Tuesday morn
ing near El Reno, their effort to pass
on the same track proving a failure,
and resulting in tho wrecking of sev
eral cars, tho killing of a horse and
the injury of one man. The wreck
was caused by a misunderstanding
of orders, so it is claimed. J. B.
Russell, of Rush Springs, Okla.,
was riding in a car with a horse he
was taking to El Reno for sale.
When' the accident happened, the
horse was caught in tho wreckage and
killed, Russell being caught under the
animal and painfully hurt, though not
seriously. The train crew rescued
him from his perilous position and
he was able to return to his home.

GO TO BATTLE
GO TO WAR!
Tacitus, the Koinnn historian, writing of the
Untnvians, said: "Others go to battle; these
people go to war."
With these 'persistent people, a battle was
merely a part of the war, of the campaign, no
matter whether it were won or lost.
In modern business life the same idea pre
vails. With the merchant who is destined to
win, advertising is a CAMPAIGN not n more
"splurge." A big ad. is merely a PARff OP
that campaign not a tiling upon which success
or failure wholly rest.
In a war, a great many big battles are apt
to be fought some of them costly, some disastrous-but
all inevitable, as a part of a win
In advertising a good many big ads. must
be used. Some of them may seem too expens
ive some almost a loss of money.
But all are a part of any winning campaign
in business all are incidental to the success of
tho campaign. And when a business campaign
succeeds as every persistent and wise one will
-the COST will seem very small, indeed!
Ilui we are going to have tome new
railroads and many new enterprises to
develop Oklahoma. I quite agree
with the recent declaration of Senator
Gore that we should have more busi-
nesi and less politics for awhile;
more progress and prosperity, and less
language spilled. And 1 want to
compliment the wnator for his Intelli
gent expressions upon the subject.
We want to set the example for a
square deal for everybody, in this new
state, and If in the exuberance of out
youth we make errors we should not
hesitate to eorrect thorn. This is the
proof of true statehood as well as of
Mr. Hudson said thnt the prospects
seem good for the building of a line
southwest from Oklnhomn City to
give the producers of that largo sec
tion a better opportunity for markets.
Mr. Stone, ho said, is considerably
encouraged, but nothing hns assumed
n definite shape as yet.

Hudson, manager of the publicity de
partment for the State Federation of
Commercial Clubs, returned from St.
Louis, Chicago and other points east,
where he went to present data to
prominent financial interests to en
courage the resumptionjof large out
side investment operations in Okla
homa. In assisting President Stone,
of tho Oklahoma City Chamber of
Commerce, to make a showing to en
courage the building of some new
railroads in the state, Mr. Hudson of
fered tho argument of Oklahoma's
great natural resources. In discus
sing the effect of the mission he says :
I presented, with Mr. Stone the ad
vantages offered by tho natural re
sources of Oklahoma for the construc
tion of railroads, and found interested
listeners. Tho necessity for building
at least five thousand moro miles of
railroad was shown as forcefully as
we could present it to the men who fi
nance large enterprizes, and there was
none to say nay. Everybody admit
ted that the state ought to have that
much more transportation service to
develop tho state and build un traffic.
and I believe that construction will bo
renewed before many months. Only
ono discouragement was met. The
men who handle largo investments are
seriosly afraid of being made the vic
tims of unfair legislaton, taking their
timidity from reports that have been
sent out all over the cuntry giving
sensational prominence to impossible
legislative popositions. They also
offer as a reason for their fear, the
confiscation clause of tho anti-trust I
bill, which is pointed to as practically
a barrier against investment and an '
indication of worse things that might'
nappen auer investments are made.
There is no use of attempting to
shake off this feeling with the accus
tomed levity of the average politician
when his hobbies are demurred to.
As Cleveland once said of quite an
other matter, it is a condition and not
a theory that confronts us. J have,

AND WHAT IT IS
Clear and Concise Explanation
Of the Science That Is
In an interview with the Democrat
Dr. Knrl Martin, the well-known
Anadarko Chiropractor, today gnVo
tho following explanation of tho sci
ence that has grown so rapidly in
favor during tho past few yoai.:
Chiropractic, pronounced "Ki-ro-prat-tic,"
moans done with tho hand.
Chiropractic is a recently discovered
science, being but n littlo moro than
twelve years old. A practitioner of
this science is called a Chiropractor.
Chiropractic is n distinctly soparato
and independent science' and has no
connection whatever with medicine,
surgery, osteopathy, magnetic heal
ing, Christian science, fnith cures,
massage, or with anything elso but
Chiropractic. It fulfills n great mis
sion and alone recognized necessity.
Chiropractic is a science that re
moves tho cause of nbnormal function
commonly known as disease, not
ease. Tho preceding statement is
broad, but the following article will
substantiate it with logical reasoning,
and thousands upon thoMsnnds of cases
practically demonstrated will remove
all shadow of doubts.
This science works through tho
coroebrospinnl nervous system. The
first thing formed in foetal life is tho
nervous system, comprising tho brain,
spinal cord and nerves. Around this
is formed the bony structure and soft
tissue. Thus wo see that the ner
vous system containcs tho very essence
of life; that through tho multitude of
channels in this system power is sup
plied to the different, .nortions of tho
