Coleman in the chair, the Greater Carson Club held an interesting meeting at the court house last evening, and though a large membership was not present only the same old crowd that is working against all kinds of difficulties in their en deavors to make something of the town a number of things were suggested and' discussed that if carried out will result in untold benefits to town and county. Following the reading of the minutes of the previous meeting matters relat ing to the establishment of a post route between this city and Glenbrook, the improvement of the Kings canyon road and the appointment of a legislative . committee to work with the assembly man and senator-elect were taken up and referred to their proper channels. One of the main matters discussed was that of the condition of the great number of houses in the city that are for rent, for which good prices are ask ed, but are so unpresentable, so ancient and so devoid of modern conveniences that rentors will not give them the sec ond glance. To remedy this condition the sugges tion was made that landlords Who ex press themselves as being unable finan cially to make needed improvements to their properties be asked to put a price on their holdings and sell them on rent al payments and action along this line will be taken. One of the noticeable features of the meeting was the absence, with one ex ception, of all city and county officials. The next meeting of the club will be held on Monday evening, December 16, when it is hoped a larger gathering will be present.
