TUESDAY, JULY 17, 1906. OUR COMMERCIAL CLUB. Every business man in Ama rillo should be' an active mem ber of the Commercial club. He tliould pay hl9 dues and stand ready to pay them even If they are several times wtiat they are now. There are places no larger than Ama rillo where the lnltatlon fee to the Commercial club has been as high aa $50. And It was paid by a mAnber shlp as numerous as that of the Ama rillo Commercial club. The people of Amarillo have the public spirit, have the means, have the disposition to do the right thing, but many of them are so absorbed in their private business that they don't know what Is going on and what is needed. Thirty thousand dollars was raised for the Santa Fe hops. Amarillo got there and the people deserved the credit for It, but the money was not raised in one day by any means, which could have been done In many places, not because we lack In liberality or appreciation, but Just a little too busy to look away from our private business. The Santa Fe railroad made a proposition with out a precedent in its liberality. It did not ask a dollar in bonus and offered to pay nearly one-half of what the land would cost that Is needed. The Missouri Pacific railroad de manded and received from the town of Sedalla, Mo., as a bonus for put ting its shops, the land upon which to cash, which the d-v of Sedalla ac cepted and the shops were built. And then Sedalla got the best of the proposition. The Panhandle Is a territory be wildering In Its vastness. Kailroad building has Just commented In this fccctlon. Amarillo may have a rival some time, that present conditions do not disclose, and In order to keep In the lead of that possible rival and to maintain this place In a position whAe It can never have a real com petitor for railroad and commercial Importance, now Is the time to do the work of building a city. There Is but one means through which this ean be done and that Is a live, active, up-to-date Commercial club, proiwiiy financed and officered. The directors of the Commercial club charge nothing for their time. Out side of the benefits common to the public, all the advantages that they receive is simply the criticism that they get for doing for the public the best they know. The secretary of the Commercial club in a sense is a manager of the business subject to the board of directors, and upon his efficiency and ability much depends. At this tlmo Amarillo is to be con gratulated upon the thorough and effective work the secretary is now doing. He has much important and weighty business and as his work progresses Ills business responsibili ties increase rather than decrease. An appreciation of the work he Is doing should be shown by every busi ness man of the city becoming a member of the club and holding up his hands and encouraging him In what Is belntr done for the common DONAHOE & -AGENTS 13 m wmrr "T'""n"ff" Panhandle Lands f Yovnr Patronage Solicited (I J) Room 10,EakleBldg.

The concerted efforts to Improve sidewalks, plant ttves and beautify the city will bear fruit In due time that will provoke the inquiry why so Important a move was not made soon er. All things, meritorious and oth erwise, must have a beginning, and now that the city government and the Ladles' Civic league, reinforced by public sentiment, are working in harmony, all can feel safe that among the improvements under way at Ama rillo none are more acceptable and certain than paved streets, miles of cement sidewalk, a system of tree planting, boulevard construction and park improvements. Brick and mor tar can combine in substantial and handsome structuresin a few months, railroads can transform a pasture into a busy mart In a season, but the more beautiful and inspiring of ur ban wealth are the flowers, shrubbery and towering shade trees that must be preceded by the forethought of yoars. Why delay the Inauguration of an era when toomeseekers will find in Amarillo those attractions that command their admiration In a high er degree than can the puny work of man when compared with nature's more useful and nobler adornments that allure us from the turmoil of business and direct our thoughts to wards the hand that moves the uni verse? Senator Bailey registered In the United States senateavlgorous "kick" against what teh Cosmopolitan said about him. He made use of some good and some very poor logic. Among the latter was the conclusion that he drew In being elected to the United States senate after the charg es preferred against him by the Cos mopolitan, had been made in the state legislature that elected him. What the legislature did by way of exonerating him sounded so good to him that he even pointed with pride to the future action of that body in re-electing htm to succeed himself. What legislatures do nowadays Is not received as character recommen dations,' as they were long ago, be fore trusts and corporations had so extensive a business to look after as they now have. 1 Senator Bailey will be re-elected to the United States senate, but It will be done by a whooplng-up-don't-care hurrah legislature, elected in a hap hazard way, and consisting of men not above the average legislature, even If it is In Texas, where the Sen ator tells us no political machine has yet made its appearance. The expose of trusts and combines Is water on the wheel of socialism. Socialistic literature and oratory have not done one tithe as much as has been done by the organized efforts of syndicated wealth in annulling the competitive system of driving small dealers out of business. The Oil trust, tlw Tobacco trust, the Sugar trust and the rest of the trusts covering every staple article of commerce, will have to do business within the legiti mate channels of competition- and obey the law or be inundated and kicked out of existence 'by the trl ump of socialism. How paradoxi cal, but true, that the Croesuses of the competitive business should face annihilation by a rival business sys tem or sent to the workhouse for abase of power under their own. The president's summer solstice at Oyster Bay has commenced on quite a strenuous plan. One of the corps of detectives and body guards knock ed down and blacked an eye of an innocent photographer, who was au thorized to take a snaV-shot of the president. Thus Is greatness guard ed by ruffians. The Beef trust and the railroads are pointing with pride to the record of congress, and the president agrees with them, so everyone should be sat isfied.

Trust magnate Schwab has just lost so much money gambling at Monte Carlo that he will have to re consider his determination to run for senator in Nevada. The president has given Senator Beveridge the credit for the meat In spection bill, but Congressman Wadsworth and the packers knocked down the persimmons. The hot weather and the congress got on the presidential nerves, but the democrats were quite cool and comfortable, thank you. Trust products are costly to the citizens, and cheap to the foreigners. Why not revise the tariff that pro tects the trusts and even things up? The North Carolina federal office holders have cooked a programme of nigger and Taffy for 19lti. (room.

Mr. Neely says he would not have missed the congress for any thing, and thinks it a great thing. He Is also very enthuslatic over the prospects of the Panhandle congress, and expects it to be the best gather ing ever held. He expressed his re grets that Secretary F. V.

An Oltlclul of the Uoek Island Rail road Escorts Them on Their Texas Trip. S. B. Hovey, vie president and general superintendent of the Rock Island, has returned to Fort Worth, after a trip over the Amarillo branch of the Rock Island. He gives good reports of conditions along the line he traveled over, and says twice as much cotton as usual has been plant ed this year, and, while the crop is backward, it looks well. The physical condition of the road is good, but that is only In keeping with nearly all else he saw or heard of In this part of Texas. The range Is fine, the cattle are waxing fat as butter balls, and look as strong and healthy as any range cattle could. Mr. Hovey told of a party of twen ty-nine from Iowa who came down on a homeseeking trip and were well pleased. They went down Into the Plainvlew country, and among other things liad a very fast automobile ride. They went nlnety-flve miles each way, saw the land they wished to see, and yet were back to the starting point In ample time to catch the train they wanted to take. They were fairly laden with samples of the products of the soil, and took them back home for the reason that some of the stories might be doubted with out the tangible evidence afforded by the fruits, vegetables and other plants themselves. Practically all of the party became Investors before leav ing the state.
