Any observant business man who has been connected with the vari ous movements inaugurated in Hot Springs in recent years will tell you in analysis of the situation as lo why the movements are not carried to completion, that they are really never started. There is an old saw that a thing well begun is half done. Some movement is suggested that would be helpful to Hot Springs, and those interested give it approval. In fact the movement is long on ap proval, hut that is about all It gels. It is showered with acquiescence, hut dies a natural death before it gets into action. For three years we have been building that Little Rock highway, and NOW it begins to look as though the work wdll he done. For two years we suffered from initiative in the matter of the condi tion of Cehtrat avenue. For more than a year we have been oiling our streets, yet what lias it availed? For four years the council has wrestled with t?lie garbage question? Nothing done. For some years, at intervals, we i have paved Valley street from Re serve to intersection with Malvern, yet there Is no paving there. Spasmodically we have Improved Quapaw and Prospect avenues, yet a comparative photo of four years ago and now would lie disparaging to the present condition. For years we have been reaching out for government improvements, and we are still reaching. Before Superintendent Harry Myers left, the reservation office an order was absolutely made for government sustained lights along Hath House Row. yet there has been no change. For some years past Hot Springs has been convinced that a commis sion form of municipal government would help, and we seem still to be convinced, hut we haven't taken a very forward step. All of which tlie more proves that Hot Springs must awaken to the work ahead and get on the Job in a pull-together spirit that will bring results, and when we do that property will advance, aud prosperity will he ours. It is time that we pulled to gether and kept pulling for some four or five years until we have some ac complishments to point to. The business men of Hot Springs built the Business Men's League as headquarters for a commercial organ ization. Is that what it is? /President Hamp Williams says an effort to centralize the public work in a single organisation will do more harm than good, and adds, "mark this prediction." The marking has beeu done. That heat thing can make records and bake records, but we still con tend that. Hot Springs has something on about three-fourths the summer c resorts. It is the time when fellows return ■ ing from the towns where "you can't spend a cent for nothin’ ” are looking about to make overdrafts good. _ s " Those who believe the hot weather the best time for bathing should take advantage oi the situation. , when they won't even eal in peace there is some cause for complaint. »?**•-* fonu ®t government •** w» „« »“»» «•», •jrr-? “»**» i 0rk wUl cr"*(' the work so that iu *“ *• *»». «.« £ lime anti forever thereafter. After an. even after Mr. Hamp " illUini uncertain defense, u th« people of Hot Springs who patj tilt bills and wlio are still paying the salaries, and who are asked to decide Whether two organizations should continue. With that record temperature in Little Rock, the Klks managed to find cool spots and make the most of them. "(lilting down to brass tacks" is the expression one business man uses relative to the merger of the commercial organizations of Hot Springs. All the saving that can l>e made in uniting the two organizations will go that mutih further towards helping Hot Springs in other ways. There is plenty of "new blood" in Hot Springs, only it hasn’t had an opportunity as yet to get in the saddle. Mot Springs is too substantial a city to lie dependent on the effort of any one man or set of men for its future growth and prosperity. Mediation might he a success—to those mediators who are spending a hot summer at Niagara Kails instead of in Central America. Yes, the garden crop might suffer, but look what the heat is doing in tlie way of making the cotton grow. But tll'is lime next summer we will be reading t*bout the Frisco exposi tion and liow the Arkansas exhibit is attracting the attention of those who make a close study of such things. Secretary Waters of tlie state fair is making hay while tlie sun shines, and in proportion to its effectiveness. Mule No. 1 should be to lop off a big overhead expense that the busi ness men are paying for a work that in the final analysis of the thing (bey do largely themselves. Also tlie work of tlie new commer cial organization should be systema tized so that some work will be ex pected of the system. Here is hoping that annual report can lie perfected by tlie date of tlie postponed annual meeting. It will lie one meeting when a quo rum will lie present without using tne grab hooks. Analyzing motives might prove an interesting game at which more than a few could play. Which proves that it might happen that a man good at promoting pub licity might be a hunk of cheese in tlie matter cl' preventing publicity. From tlit survey made by Harap Williams it was the Business Men's League that made the world and put the people in it, and then turned on tile hot water. Most Prompt and Effectual Cure For Pad Colds.
