OPEN LETTER ON MARTIN
To the officers of the Tacoma Commercial Club, George Mil

It is to you that the 900 members of the Tacoma Commercial
|club are looking today to remove from the office of "secretary
and manager" of your organisation, Thomas H. Martin.
If you have any doubt as to the sentiment of the vast major
ity of the members of your club, you will have that doubt erased
by an interview with these members.
The matter of Martin's removal is of interest to all of Tacoma
—not merely the members of the club. As the only commercial
organisation in the city, your club has asked for and has received,
the liberal and enthusiastic support of the whole citizenship of
When the $50,000 publicity fund was raised, it was promised
that the name and fame of Tacoma would be spread broadcast.
Martin was brought here to direct this fund and to induce new
industries to come to Tacoma. MARTIN'S FAILURE TO
ACHIEVE ANYTHING AT ALL HAS BEEN SO POSITIVE
AS TO MAKE HIM NOTORIOUS.
That Martin is speedily disrupting the Commercial club is a
matter of some consequence, too. That you may have no false
notion of this serious condition, let us point out that at your
monthly meeting on Tuesday, you received resignations from 31
The Times deplores the necessity of publicly criticising your
"manager." It was hoped, some months ago, by the majority of
the members that when Martin's contract jexpired, he would

Although eastern club women
