TUB WEEKLY I1BKALI) JULY 4, 1907.
PRESBYTERIANS PLAN PANHANDLE SCHOOL 'Jl ew col log or training school lq the psnhsndlo to be organized, en- (lowed md maintained under tho control of the National Presbyterian church Is one of tho projects now a foot Whcra this institution la to bo loratod Is (till to he doclclod but at tho lint meeting of the Trt a byterf for this dutrlct tho delegates definitely determined uyon the en terprlso and a commission was ap pointed to take charge of tho plans. Tho commlsMon whlrh consists of I C. Klrkcs, of Aninrlllo, h cluilr man; Retr. Pulton, of Wlch'ta Falls; Rev. M. 11. Frank, of Canadian; Hon. John II. StrphfUH. of Vernon; J. A. Kemp, of Wichita Falls, and M. W, Cunningham, of Amarlllo, has Just Issued an address to tho people of the district which out Hobs the plans as follows. "It Is proponed to limit tho scope of this Institution to the work of tho academy or training school with music and business departments and not to undertake university or col lets work beyond posslhly the first college year. It la proposed to do thoroughly the work attempted and to mako the school second to none within tho lines it undertakes, and with tho wealth and prrstiKo of the National Presbyterian church he bind It there will be no lack of either funds or pupils. "Tbo object of this sddress Is to outline our plans and to suggest that the school will be located In that dty cf ths Panhandle which offers tbo most substantial Inducements Tho commission has received Inti mation that ii number of cities will bo active competitors for tho school among which may be mentioned Wi chita Falls, Amarlllo, Quanah and Vernon. However, any city within tho limits of the presbytery as out lined above is Invited to communi cate with the commission." GIVES FRANCHISE TO DAVENPORT ny a vote of 207 to 88, the clti tens of Amarlllo who took part 'In the election yesterday ordered the granting of a franchise to II. H. Da venport, of Hillsboro, and the rejec tion of the franchise offered by the Amarlllo Telephone company, which now bas tho field. Although the number sf votes recorded was com paratively small,' tho voting was pret ty thoroughly representative and more interest waa displayed in the ' result than In tho election for alder man last spring. Tbo result was practically known long before the polls closed and vic tory by a Urge majority was con ceded to the Davenport people. The character of the service now being Tendered by the home telephone com pany with their outworn plant and system was a, hopeless handicap to them in spite of their assurances that they ore planning to Install a com plete and adequate modern system. While tbe result of tho election practically decides the grunting of the tranefiTse, tho formal granting of the franchise will not be done nntll the next council raw ting which may te tomorrow or may be later. One change will probably bo made from the form of frouchlsd offered In the first place and both of the apllcants had agreed to this change before the election. Instead of re quiring a speolfled bond which may fce forfeited to the city on non-fulfillment of the conditions of the franchise, the city will Insert a clause which provides that tho charter it self will be forfeited on failure to comply with It. Old Company Claims Field. In line with tholr assurances be fore tho election, ofMcluls of the Amarlllo Telephone company today maintain their determination to re main In the field regardless of the decision in the elect-Ion and of fur "tli"t action by the council. They also 'ttfUe that they are proceeding today wl, plans for the new switch board and extensive equipment with which they Intend to replace tho jpresent overworked plant. A to the possibility for reaching an agreement with tbo Danveport people whereby the new company can gain complete possession of the field, the men of tho present company are not at all reassuring. HThey would accept a proposition for purchase by the Da venport people but tbey Intimate that It would probably be on a basis which the new compsny has not yet shown a willingness to accept. Taylor to Puhh Work. Manager Taylor, of tho Daven port company, whs nioro than ever In earnest with his plsns for proceed ing with tho work of tho compsny. Ho Is especially anxious that th council grant th franchise at once in order that the company may defi nitely clone contracts for nuid-rliil for the, extensive plant which hU franchise will call for. Ho still ex press g willingness to buy out the present telephone compsny st a val uation of their property and would accept a valuation placed by a suit able competent apprlsal committee. As the recipient of the franchise from tho city, however, he wllj pro ceed with IiIh pliiis independent of uny ngrecment which nuy hereafter bo made between his compnay and tho present company. On the out line by the Davenport projile for the plant tho construction will take many nmnthH for perfect completion, but Manager Taylor says thst engin eering work will begin as soon as ho receives the official right to begin and that all construction will bn pushed from tho st.trt. Complies with all requirements of the National Pure Food Uw, GuaranU - Vs. 204 1, filed at Washington DEATH OF K. W. WHITK Honored Citizen I'mmcs Away at Bat tle Cm Kunllarlum. (From riatuniay'B Dally.) Yesterday afternoon W. K. Kirk received a telegram from his slater at Itattlo Creek, Mich., stating that her husband, K. W. White, died thero at the sanltsrlum at 1 o'clock yester day afternoon. Arrangements were being made for tho shipment of tho remains here for burial which will probably take plnco Monday from the Fillmors street Presbyterian church. Dean Kirk left Amarlllo Thursdsy evening in response to a telegram from his sister stating that Mr. White waa much worse, and ho Is now with Mrs. Whit. With the passing of K. W. White, tho city loses one of Its hKt known, oldest and most trusted business men and one ot Its clenneRt and most useful citizens. With his family he has been a resident of Amarlllo for over thirteen years and has all the time been intimately and steadly Identified with the upbuilding of the highest Interests of the city. Almost continuously since his com ing to Amarlllo Mr. White has been in the mercantile business and at the time of his death was senior mem ber of the well known firm of White fi Kirk. Today the storo Is cloned and the heavy crepe with which it Is draped is Indicative of tho real nnd deep personal loss felt by the mem bers and employes of that firm nnd by hundreds of peoplo throughout tho Panhandle. Mr. Whlto was born near Colum bia, S. C, and is tho fourth in dl- rect male line from that sturdy rev olutionary patriot, General Henry White, who was one of the framers and signers of the Mecklenburg dec laration of Independence. His early life was spent in South Carolina and twenty-seven years ago ha camo to Texas as tho representative of a mer cantile house. For a number of years beforo he came to Amarlllo he was in buslnoss nt Postoak, Tex as, and mere ne met ana married Miss Kirk, who now survives him. Three children were born to them. Two daughters, Fsy, who was a member of this year's graduating class at the High School, and John nie, aged twelve, and a little son, agod eight. AH the children are at the home here and the shock of their father'a death at the farawny sani tarium falls with crushing weight upon them. Although Mr. White had all throuh his life been an untiring worker and not until recently did he realize that his health was in immi nent danger from weaknesses of long danger. Brlght's' disease, accom panied by enlargement of the heart, bad undermined his health to an alarming extent and although he has bent every effort for the last few months toward remedying the weak ness, the rest came too late and yes terday the crisis which had been ex pected for Seevral days, came at the Battle Creek sanitarium where ho water man, Domlnlck Flynn, Orchard had been taken two weeks ago in the hope of gaining relief. Mr. White was a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian church and in keeping with his character In all fields of right endeavor, bo was known for his unwavering and con scientious performance of his duties. He was and has beifn for many years an elder In the congregation here. Definite announcements as to the time of arrival of the party In Araa rtllo and funeral services will be given tomorrow at the various churches. . i mmm ...... 1 - T MM I 1 ' .m ' iT-St 1 a r td . m :') sVarcmiA An old soldier writes about ARIOSA Coffee: "Your coffee is the best and richest coffee I ever drink since I left the service, from '61 until I received your coffee yesterday." A soldier knows coffee by the taste, and the way it makes him feci, and would sooner go without lu bread than without his coffee. Arhucklcs ARIOSA was the firt routed, packaged coffee, packaged for protection of ront!mrr, roasted and the pores ol cai h berry sealed with a coating of fresh cgg and pure sugar, to hold the goodnm in and make the coffee settle clear end quickly.

GRAIN CROP IS ABOVE ESTIMATE (From Saturday's Daily.) "This plains grain rrop has turned our estimates all wrong," said A. B. Spencer the division freight and pas senger agent of the Rock Island, this morning. "We estimated tho pros pective crop pretty thoroughly along our lines some time ao and wo plac ed yield at 10 per cent or a possible twenty. On tho showing at that time we thought wc. would bo lucky to get a 10 per cent yield on an av erage.. "Well they are harvesting the crop now along the line in Texas and over In Oklahoma aud the yield Is fully 50 per cent. There are a number of fields that are yielding 1(5 to 17 bushels of wheat to the acre and tiulte a good deal of the oats la bringing 36 or more bushels to the acre. This plains country has a re markable recuperative power and crops aro able to recover even late In the season.
