The Commercial club mot last night at the city hall, together with a mass meeting nf the citizens of tho town. Sidney Suggs, acting president of tho club, called tho meeting to ordci ami stated th jirlmary object of tho nest ing to bo to look aftor the location and purchase of a United States Jail site. James Mathera kept the minutes of tho meeting. United Stntes District Attomoy W H. Johnson was called for and stated ii brief that an appropriation had boon made by the national congress for tho construction of a United Statos Jail bore, and that for tho rea son that tho appropriation Is so small a slto must necessarily bo donated by tho city to supplement tho fund In order to build a two story brick or stono Jail with tho necessary steel cages. Mr. Johnson thought It was a shame for a great government to aBk such of a town, but that tho np proprlntlon was cut at tho suggestion of an Indian Territory man. Tho Jail slto will rcqulro a lot 100x150 fcot and must be within two blocks of the court house. For tho reason that the present Jail needs Improvement and that in all probability the Jail will bo donat oil to tho county when wo aro given statehood, Mr. Johnson said ho would give $25 toward tho purchase of a site. Mr. C. L. Horhort said Ardmoro should donate tho slto; It would give a bettor place for prisoners and would almost Insure us a branch of tho fed eral court nftor statehood. Mr. Her bert said he would give $25. A committee to tako options on (lit eront sites nml to submit thorn to Judge Townseml, Attorney Johnson and Marshal Colbert for their choice was elected. Tho committee Is com posed of J. 11. Spraglns, Sam Noble J A. Hlvens. C. L. Anderson and J . nanus, me committee will re port back to n meeting nt tho city hall Thursday night. Mayor Dick nnd W. S. Wolverton made some timely suggestions that were accepted In tho Instructions to the committee. Mr. Horbort made a short nddress to the club on the question of Indus tries and read tho following letter from Mr. Hurnham of tho Oklahoma Industrial Bureau: C. u Horbort. Ardmoro, I. T. Dear Sir: In regnnl to cotton and woolen proposition; tho plant which you can secure for your city for $25,000 Is n thoroughly up to dato plant. It Is a comploto throo set mill, consisting of three sixty-Inch cards, 1,782 spindles six spinning machines, 101 lootuc complete stnndard dye and finishing machine, doublo Bot boilers, engines, lathes and other power machinery, equipped for both cotton nnd woolen fabric manufacturing. The mill ca pacity Is 115 hands. Wages will av orage a little over ono dollar a day. The machinery of this mill can not bo bought new for less than $05,000. All the machinery is In first class con dition. Tho mill, In ltsVresont loca tion, has paid rogular dividends from the date of Its establishment. An op. Hon has been secured on this mill nnd I hnvo already found two men who will not only bo glad to handle tho superintending of tho mill, In such location that may bo found for It, but will put money In tho mill nt the prlco at which It can bo secured, Twenty- tivo thousand dollaro buys tho plant. Tho town that gets tho mill will have to arrnngo for slto and building. Slto and buildings ought to bo provided for, anyway, $5,000. Tho cost of moving tho machinery would probably bo about $500. You men tioned tho fact that $25,000 or $30,000 looked cheap. It is cheap. This plant Installed In any town will stand good for $75,000 or $100,000. We located a cotton-woolen mill In Oklahoma City and In twenty-four hours you could not buy a dollar's worth of the stock for loss than two or three times the amount the origi nal subscribers paid for It. Mr. T. C. Newby, who will be tho superin tendent of our mill here, has, at my Instigation. Inspeoted tho mill, on which option has boon secured, and pronounces It ono of tho best bar gains In tho milling Industry. You might wrlto to him T. C. Newby, box 14, Springfield, Mo. for hla opln' Ion In the matter. He Is a practical mill superintendent" and knows what a mill Is.. As I told you before, there are two other points which are very anxious to get this plant, but I would like to land It for you. In, your city, aa I I bollovo It would bo 'a -success from tho start there, and a hit stir-ecs's. Now tno way lor ypu to no is jui like wo did here. Get up a subscrip tion sheet aa per the enclosed sheet, have three subscription papers and get tho $1,000 men on ono paper and the $500 men on another papor and the smaller subscribers on another pa per. As you win notice oy lorm oi subscription, the subscriber Is bound to nothing uuloss tho qommlttce se lected by the subscriber finds on In spection that tho plant Is whnt your lown wants. If Ardmore Is going to do anything, this la a sure opportunity to do It. will do all I can to help you. YourB truly. OKA 1 1 AM I1UHN1IAM. Mr. Sugga then stntcd that tho club had been dormant for tho renson that no ono know whnt his property would cost him, nnd that, not knowing whnt lraln tho payment for property would bo upon tho town, that by mu tual consent nothing In an Industrial way had been sought to bo done. Hut now, since property wns appraised wo could tako some definite action. Cnpt. John L. Onlt then Buggostcd that during tho latter part of July Ardmoro would celebrate its anniver sary, nnd that there would be a re union of tho Confederate veterans of the Indlnn Territory held hero at the same time.
