VOL. 51, COMERCMLCLUB HOLDS MEETING Regular Meeting on Friday Evening Well Attended and Considerable Business Transacted PARKING AUTOS IS DISCUSSED Club Will Sell Present Sprinkler and Donate Proceeds to City to be Applied on New Flusher There was a good attendance at the 'regular monthly business session of the commcrcial club, held last Friday evening, and many important matters were brought to /the attention of the club. It is pleasing to note the Inter est that'our business men are taking in the club and with co-operation much good will be derived. Treasurer J. T. Haugh made a report showing that the club now has on hand in the treasury $404.62. Three now members were voted in to the club Friday evening, they be ing Geo. Powell, S. Jobe and Roy Geb ert. It was .moved by C. F. Kuehnle and seconded by H. Mann that the names of 11. E. Mote and J. T. Carey be added to the bank committee, making that committee number five. This motion was carried. Mr. C. F. Kuehnle made a motion that the band committee have full power regarding the finances of the band, and that they be given power to purchase any instruments and equip ment that they deemed necessary. The motion was seconded by Mr. N. L. Hunt and carried unanimously. The club ratified and approved the contract of Robert Gibler, the new band master, and instructed the sec retary of the club to issue a warrant each month for his salary. The sal ary of Mr. Gibler has been raised among the business men of Denison who have donated liberally toward supporting the new band. The band boys are practicing two evenings each week and it is said that by spring Den ison will have a band that will make the other towns sit up and take notice. Wo are indeed fortunate in having a leader such as Mr. Gibler. Mr. Gib ler, the band director, was voted an honorary member of the club with all privileges. The postponement of .the old set tlers' picnic was brought up for dis cussion and it was decided to hold the picnic rfh September 14th. The pro gram as advertised will be carried out with some additions. It was decided that the balance of $8.50 left over af ter the license and water rent for the circus had been paid be turned to tho old settlers' fund. The club tendered a vote of thanks to its secretary, R. E. Mote, for the interest he took in securing Ringling Bros, circus. It was entirely through the efforts of A^r. Mote that the circus was brought to Denison. Klectric fans are to be purchased by the club for tho rooms to make it more comfortable for the members during the hot wdather. At times the heat is almost unbearable at the club and it is a hard matter to get many members out to the meetings, but with the use of electric fans it is hoped to Take it more pleasant for everyone. Another important matter that came up for discussion was that of parking automobiles on the paved streets. At present automobile owners are park ing their cars parallel to the curb stones while some elthel* head their cars iiito the curb or back in, which results in more or less confusion, especially on Saturday evenings when the traffic is unusually heavy. There is a concensus of opinion that the at tention of the mayor of the city be called to the matter and that some uni form method of parking cars be adopt ed. Many of the .members were in favor of parking the cars in the center of the street, which would leave a wide thoroughfare on either side of the street and would compel traffic to move in one direction. This method has been used in Omaha for some time and has been found to be most satisfac tory. The matter of sprinkling and flush ing the streets was brought up for dis cussion and the club decided to sell the present sprinkler and turn over the amount to the city to be ap'plied on the purchase price of a new flusher. The club has agreed to pay the cost of sprinkling the business section of the city until the first of the year, as here tofore, but the city is to pay for flush ing the paved streets outside of the business section. The balance on liprid of the sprinkling account is of fered by B. Brodersen, the amount be ing $220.34. The civic committee was instructed to meet with the city council and urge them to clean up the city. There is much complaint over the condition of certain streets and alleys, and resi dents are complaining bitterly over the condition of vacant lots where weeds have been allowed to grow all summer without cutting. Of course, everyone knows th^t the city dads have been so busy-' with the details of the paving, sewers and waterworks that they have not had much time for anything else. Inasmuch as most of this work is nearing completion it is hoped that they will turn their atten tion to cleaning up the city. Word was received in Denison the first of the week from Rochester, Minn, stating that Mrs. Frances Barber un derwent an operation at the hospital there last Saturday and that she is get ting along as well as can be expected. Her many friends will be glad to learn that the operation was success ful. Mr. and Mrs. H. A.

J. Garrison and E. Gulick Broken Into, but Burglars Fail to Secure but Lititle. PREPARE FOR FOOTBALL Professor Lynch and Assistant Helsley Getting Football Squad in Read iness for Fall Games. The local police are to be congratu lated upon the manner in which they handled the circus crowd last Wednes day and upon the few arrests that were made. Only two arrests were made, they being for drunkeness. 1-Mck pockets and purse snatchers, who gen erally follow circuses, did not make their appearance in Denisoh, at least no one reported occurrences of this nature to the officers. Burglars, however, were in evidence and the home of T. J. Garrison on East Broadway was entered while the fam ily was watching the circus parade down town. Mr. Garrison and family left the house about 10 o'clock and when they returned an hour later found that the house had been ran sacked from basement to garret and a handsome gold watch belonging to Miss Lillian garrison had been stol en. The thieves made entrance to the home through the kitchen door, using a "jimmy" to force the door open. Every drawer in the house was ransacked and those found locked were pried open, marring the furniture considerably. Fortunately Mrs. Gar rison's jewels were in a safety deposit box at the Crawford County State bank or they would have been stolen, as the jewel box in which she keejs them in the house was broken open. At the E. Gulick residence a robber was caught in the act of breaking in by Dr. R. P. Plimpton and frightened away. Dr. Plimpton was in his barn just across the alley from the Gulick residence when he heard the sound of breaking glass. He looked over at the Gulick residence and saw a man' on the back porch who had just brok en the glass in the back door. He called to the man who made a hasty exit, running down the street to the railroad yards. Professor Lynch of the high school faculty, who has charge of the ath letics, is in high spirits over the pros pects of a winning football team this year, and tells us that the D. H. £. will give a good' account of Itself this fall on the gridiron.

WARD & WEIGHTON GET SEWER Three Bidders on Storm Sewer, Con tract Let to Ward & Weighton Company of Sioux City. The city fathers held a meeting at tho city hall last evening and contract ed with an Omaha concern for the purchase of a flushing machine for cleaning the new pavement. The ma chine purchased is styled the Economy air pressure flusher and is manufac tured in Omaha. The machine pur chased cost the city $ti50 and is of the most improved type. It is the same make of machine that is used at Har lan, Council Bluffs, Omaha and Lin coln and does the work better than any other machine on the market. Part of the cost of the new machine will be bcrne by the Commercial club, who will turn over the proceeds o£ the sale of the old sprinkler. The contract for the storm sewer to be installed on lower Main street was let to the Ward & Weighton company, cf Sioux City, their bid of $2,410.00 be ing the lowest. Two other concerns, Katz Construction company, of Oma ha, and C. II. Wilson, of Red Oak, en tered bids. The Ward & Weighton company were the successful bidders for the laying of the new water main up Washington avenue and their work for the city has been so satisfactory that the council felt tUey were making no mistake in giving them the con tract for the new storm sewer. The council ordered Mayor Laub to see that the rings placed in the side walk in front of the Boys' store for bitching teams be removed. Several business houses placed rings in the sidewalk after the hitching posts were removed and later complied with the order of the mayor to remove them. Hitching posts are being provided on the side streets so that teams will be accommodated" without hitching them on the main business streets.
