Owing to the fact that Mr. O'Neil,
president of the O'Neil Engineering
Co., of Dallas, Tex., could not reach
the city Tuesday evening the ad
journed special meeting of the city
council was postponed until Wednes
day afternoon at 1 :30 o'clock.
At this time the question of the
contract between the city und the
O'Neil Engineering Co., was taken
up and fully considered by the council.
It was explained to the members of
the council that the contract as drawn
fully covered the construction of the
proposed improvements and exten
sions to the electric light and water
systems as well as the construction of
the dam across the Washita river.
It was also shown to the council
that the contract with the Engineer
ing company guaranteed the construc
tion of the work as called for by the
plans and specifications within the
limit as of the estimcates. this 'beine
guaranteed by a bond in the sum of j Lebanon will be given, also music
$10,000 with a surety comparny. in their native tongue, and beautiful
Prior to the meetintr Mr. Goodman ' illustrated views of the most noted
secretary of the engineering compa
ny, indicated that his company would
be perfectly willing to accept a con
tract for the supervision and engineer
ing of the work, permitting the
city to advertise for the bids for the
construction work, adding that his
company knew from past experience
with the nearly fifty towns in which
they had completed similar work,
that after the city had done this and
examined the bids the city would be
glad to come back to he original con
tract. He " presented figures to show"
that in all of thejr past experience
they had by their work and methods
saved the cities in which they had
worked much money over what would
have been expended had their work
been let to contractors and supervis
ing engineers employed.

Oklahoma City, Okla., Nov. 23
PaBsing resolutions recommending leg
islation on matters which they believe
to be vital to the interests of rural
communities throughout the state and
providing for the maintenance of a
lobby to carry the measures desired
through the legislature the Oklahoma
township trustees adjourned their con
vention yesterday afternoon after a
successful two days' session. The
J mo-t important measures advocated
by tl'.in were provisions for convict
labor to be employed on the roads and
for each county to maintian two main
thoroughfares across it, one from east
to west and one from north to south
They also entered a strong protest
against any experiment with the
county assessor system.
The other resolution dealt with
raising funds for road building and
renumeration of the trustees. It was
also recommended that the trustees
be allowed to build roads by contract
with tho poll tax, money instead of
having the work done by the county

wo'-''' contract to construct all of
