TO THE MAYOU AND CITY COUN.
CII, OF AKDMORE:
The undersigned have been appoint
ed by tho Coirtuerclnl club to call your
attention to the iucwlty fur a Public
Wilghei In the city ot Ardmore. Com
plaints culculated to iltstroy confidence
In Ardmore ns a market for cottou'and
other products have been circulated
nmong the farmers who bring tholr
products here for sale, ngalnt cortaln
weighers In the employ ot private In
dividuals of this pUee. We do not
vouch for the truth ot these com
plaints, but the fact that the com
plaints nro In circulation and that they
Impulr the confidence of thoso who
bring their products to Ardmore for
market, Ir sufficient to Justify nctlon
on the part ot the city council. Wo un
derstand some question has been rais
ed ns to whether or not the city coun
cil has the authority to create the of
fl oe of Public Weigher or otherwise
establish and regulate markets In the
city, but wo submit thnt this objec
tion l not well taken. Chapter 29 of
Mansfield's Digest ot the stntutos of
Arkansas, has by. act of congress, been
In forco In the Indian Territory, and
authority conferred upon the city coun
cil of towns In this territory, to pass
ordinance to make the provisions of
that chapter applicable to conditions
prevailing here. Section 750 provides
thnt municipal corporations to be or
ganised under tho provision ot that
chupter, shall have general iwvers
and privileges and section 751 pro
vides that they shnll hnve power to
estoblhili and regulate markets, and
provide for the measuring and weigh
ing ot hay. wood, or any other nrtlclo
for sale. This sectlou ot tho Arkansas
statute, which is In full forco In the
Indian Territory has been conatrueu
by the suprome court of Arkansas and
It hns been held that It confers upon
city counolls authority to enact a reas
onable ordlnanco creating tho onlco oi
Public Weigher and requiring nil per
sons who bring produco within tho
city limits for sale, to havo tho s.mio
-relzhed at public .scales ostabllshon
by the authority ot tho city, nnd to
provide reasonable penalties for fall
ure to do so. We submit that the au
thority to create the office ot Public
Weigher, to establish and regulate
markets and to provide for measuring
cr weighing of all articles brought to
Ardmoro for sale, is vested In the city
