SEWER AND IJCiHT COMMISSIONERS. -V The commissioners appointed by the city council to have charge of the construction of municipal water, sewer and lighsplatus, qualified latter part of last week and or ganized by electing I)r. C. G. Dodson president and A. M. Leitzell secretary. The other member is .1. F. Harris. The next step will be the employment bv the board of an engineer to make a survey of the proposed improvements and to prepare plans and estimates of the costs. This estimate will then be submitted to the city council, which body will appoint three electors residing within the dis trict who will constitute a board of assessment to assess the benefits io be received by each lot or parcel of real estat* by reason of the proposed improvement. he News desires to congratulate and commend the members of the city council on the character of men se lected as commissioners. Dr. (’. G. Dodson is president ■ f the Firs: National Bank and has large holdings of real estate. He "crowed up” in Springdale, and has always taken an active interest in every enterprise for the better ment of the town and surrounding country. ‘Mini” Harris has been a resident of Springdale ever "since the wood- were burned," and is the senior member of one of the prominent mercantile firms of the town. It is char acteristic of him that he always takes off his coat, rolls up hi> sleeves and wades in when there is work to be done for Springdale. The other member and secretary of the board s A. M. Leitzell, local representative of the Frisco ra’iroi.d. lb was transferred to this point from Fort Smith a number of years ago, owns irw of the best homer n Spr ngdaie, and is thoroughly idem i d with the inter ests o* the town. i nese .cenuemen are an not onn capaoie aim tiuai - tied for the duties for which they have been chosen, but each possesses n a marked degree the confidence of a who know them. With: such men at the‘head of this ere; ■ under a king every resident of Springdale can feel seen r* n the knowledge that the interest- of the tax payers will be safeguarded and carefully looked after. The News heels and we believe his feeling is general, that we wii' et fall value if every dollar that s spent, and that win n ue iinnro •'semenus will have Inen comj>leted we will have as g< 'i water sewer and light plants as the money available w ’ build and that they will be a credit to the town. tne orosecution of the w ;rk undertaken by the c. mnu i oers there will be obstacles to overcome—there aiways are n och enterprises. But the petitions pre seine I to ihe c oum il show in- ninety per cent oi the protuntv owners of the o wn wain these enterprises, : n-i thi- v.d ii*. it-elf. by a wonderful it centive to the com mi-sioners to push on t - success n spite of any obstacle While la* poodle it ■ n !t want any undue haste to the tie: ri the welfare oi the >v. n, s 1 >elieve it is their i.v Lhnt ! h: u be pushed fonvard as, rapidly as nt ''.itii good s >und business judgt men . and this we believe the commissioners will do. Messrs Dodson. Denzel! and Harris have an oppor do con-islt tunit\ that comes to but few men in a life time. - The power has been placed in their hands to provide their home town with three public utilities that will survive iong after their builders have passed away. It .vill be a lasting monument, and The News trusts that they may K1\ i w J \ :Hhl WP11 mer.i i.tl within the next week or two and rushed as rapidly as possible.

Addresses were delivers! by ( apt. M> Hi ury of Rot' ers, who served with the British forces and Lieut. Fred Tillman of Fayette ville, who served with the French flyers. The address of Lieut. Till man was unusually interesting, beinp pronounced by all as one of the best ever heard in Springdale. (’apt. Mc Henry and Lieut. Tillman both spoke in very complimentary terms of the oldiers with whom they served. II. L. McDonald presided as chairman of the rreetintr, and Carl Rice sane a s do. Invocation was by Dr. R. T Phillips and the benediction was pro nounced by Rev. T. W. Shipley WAKE VV SPRINEDAEE TOWNSHIP.

Whaley, cashier of iht Batik of Sulphur Springs, who is the War Loan <'hairman for his township, informed the •'Liberty Bell” that al ready Sulphur Springs township as usual had gone over the top. In recounting the record achieved hy his township, Mr. Whaley says that in the Third Liberty Loan the township went three and thr>e fourths the amount of their quota and won a Libi-ry Flag. When the Fourth Liberty Loan ■ a me aloi;:- • chairman Whaley was -till on the job anil before breakfast on the firs’ volunteer day he telephoned the county chairman that Sulphur Spring * township had exceeded its quota. When the drive was finished d was found it had doubled its quota. In thi War Sa» mg drive, the tow ip w at Ml* pc>- rent above its quota. In the Red Cross drive. Sulphur Sprint township ex tolled its quo Li trebly 1' also went over the top in th* Cnited War Work drive.

STIMWBKKIO SF\SON NOW ON * he strawberry cason is now on, and the loading of the first car be !-ran yesterday afternoon. The qual ity of berries this season is s,u<| to be unusually trend, and the prices prom ise to be the best over known. The rains of the past week have been of material bo> . fi to He crop, and all] that is t ow m- - -s t' v i.- warm sun shine. It is estimated that fifty or sixty cars will be shipped from ■ Sp, ivrdale this season Favlor Jones brought in tin firs* strawberries of the season Monday, , consisting of five crates, being Klon lykes. They were sold to local buy I era for $6.00 per erati . Thirty crates j were shipped out Monday by express, • and about the same number each dav : during' the week. The price hu> j ranged from $4.50 to $6.00. Speculators have been buying a number of patches throughout this vicinity, paying good prices. The crop on the seven acres mirth of town planted last year by Bob Beasley sold for $1500. They arc* Aromasxaml are on new ground. Over $200 an acre for one crop is not bad, and ex perienced berry men say the purchas ers will make good money ori their investment if the season is favorable. Kim Springs growers will begin loading a car here to-day. Tonti town and Harmon growers will also do their shipping from Springdale this season, since the “grape vine” railroad has been abandoned. Kirn Springs growers have contracted to have i heir berries transported to S i lab by tel at - cents per erati' M VRKIAGKS. i SHhl ION '.Ik.! KT'I.
