H s o'clock nearly one hundred citizens. representing all trades and classes, and among whom were the most prominent men in the citj. had assembled in 'lie court room. .Indue llial called the meeting to order and moved that .Major Kellj act as dial! man of the meeting. Tlie motion was carried. Oscar T. Martin, ei., was then chosen secretary. The chairman stated tlie object of the meeting, and said that 111 conversing with otliers on the subject, he had found a strong sentiment in favor ol an organization of some sort that would take hold of matters concerning the citj and the public, and act on them intelligently and autliontativelj.

How best to affect this organiza-1 tiou is the question of the hour. Mr. George II. Krej- To my mind the question is whether we can orgauize for the best interests of the city. Such an or ganization ought not only to promote the citj-'s interesLs, but It ought also to have within it a board of arbitration, such as w as lu the boinl 01 trade 01 years ago. What the nature and workings of the proposed organization are to be Is of more iuilxirtance than its name. No town of any considerable size and prominence is without 'a citizens organization, and Springfield ought to have one to care for her interest. Some jears ago almost every town in the i countrj as flooded w ith circulars -s-nt out liv the Hoard of trade of Columbus, setting forth tlie advantages of Columlin- as a resi dence and manufacturing citj-. These or ganizations are WCIMiKltFL'I rnOMOTFKs of growth: hence, we find them in all of the rapullj rising cities Wichita, Kansas Citj, Leavenworth and many others. If such an institution were organized here, IU v arious committees w ould arrange the facts concerning tlie citj and place them before all strangers in the most attractive form. Much concerning the city might lie embodied in a printed circular which would place before a stranger a col lection of statistics and answers to ques tions that he would certainly ask that would take him several hours to secure. This organization ran be made whatever vv e choose to make it, and I believe that had w e had the Imard of arbitration to which I allude, such questions as tlie water works suit might have been adjusted with out resort to law. and our legal friends would not have had so much hard work to ,.vi. -vicnoisroseauusaiu. resigne.llj)-Wcll. 1 alwajs vote jour j 3Iiu Cihikman .

IsL That those present here tonight should freelv ex press their opinions of tlie step It is pro posed to take, and 2d. That a committee should be apointed to kv-ertain bj- correspondence and by cisUm to other cities, if necesarj. the cope of such an organization, ami to make a com plete written report of Its investigation at a subsequent meeting. .Mr. Frey I airree perfectlj with 3Ir. Martin, and if he, as secretarj . will embody those suggestions in the form of a resolu tion, I will move the whole batch. Secretary Martin then presented the fol lowing: Hesoived (1). That It Is the sense of this meeting that it is advisable to organize a chamber of commerce or similar organiza tion, tlie object of w hich shall lie to promote the commercial and material interests ol the citj-. I'i). That a committee of six shall be ai polntecl by the chairman to consider and formulate plans and form for such an or ganization, and such committee shall, after a thorough examination, report to a meet ing to lie called by the chair, or further action. 3Ir John II. Thomas I object to the kiiist nrsoi.i tio liecause, as it sajs. it is the "-eiise of this meeting'' that a certain organization be etTected.it leaves the committee w Itll noihs cretiouarj power, and I think that the committee ought to be iintramineled in its im estigations, mi that among other things. It might ascertain whether It is desirable to form such an organization, and it it is, then to report the best method. I, for one, do not know w hether it is either desirable or necesarj' to organize such an association, because I have given the subject no thought, and I caunoL therefore, vote intelligent! oniL 1 may. however, be the only one here who has not made up his mind. Mr. V. 31. liagan moved, as an amend ment to the resolutions, that a committee of six be appointed to ascertain whether it is desirable to organize such an association. Like. Mr. Thomas he had given the subject little consideration. Mr. George Sience moved, as an amend ment to Mr. Martin's resolutions that the committee be made nine, one from each ward, instead of six, Mr. Thomas and Mr. liagan urged that a coniuiltlee ought to be appointed simply to consider the matter. The) Here not pre- pared to saj whether tliej favored the plan or not. (eneral A. S. Hiislmell I am reluctant to saj anllimg because I reallj do not know what is to be done. I am inclined to agree with .Mr Thomas and Mr. liagan and think it might be V CIIKIII 111! v to drop from the resolution the words clutui- ler of commerce and have the lesolution read that it is the sense of this meeting that some organization Ik effected to promote tlie prosperitj and best interests of the city. 1 think all will agree to that. I had ar ranged to go to Chicago tonight, but after receiving the major's invitation 1 thought it my dutj" to defer mj v isiL I do not know whether 1 am in favor of a chamber of coinnierc e or board of trade or not. but 1 ani in favor of an organization that w ill ad vance Springfield. I therefore move thai the words "a ehamber of commen e or sim ilar oigauization" be stricken out of the resolution and tlie words "an association" be substituted. The motion was carried General lliishnrll then suggested that sl woulil be a lietter niiiniier for the com mittee than nine, lecause of the dimculty of securing a quorum in a large committee. and on his molioii the nunitier was made six. The resolution as amended was then adopted. Major Kellj announced tlie following committee: (ieneral A. S. Biishnell, fleorge II. Frey. C. 31. Nichols, Oscar T. .Martin. John II. Thomas and C. A. Phelps. Mr. Thomas declined to serve because he could not meet with the committee 111 the evening, and the name of Mr. V.S.Thomas was suggested. He also declined.
