Many Business Men and Citizens
Present-Twenty or More
New Members
Pursuant to the call ol the Sec
retary, the Commercial Club held
a public meeting at the City Mall
Tuesday night for the purpose of
increasing its membership and set
tlingonsome plan to finance th
organization. Col. T. V. Meman,
the Club's Secretary, was called to
the Chair, stated the object of th
public call and asked the pleasure
of the meeting. Joseph Israel was
elected Secretary.
Col. Meman explained to those
present that while in its embryo
the club had been working rather
on close communion lines, but it
was not the purpose nor the d
sire of those connected with it that
such was the case, but the direct
ors and many of the members had
been and an: busy people, and it
has been a hard matter to gel them
together. Put, since the duties ol
tlie organization are heeoming
more and more urgent, and since
the work to be done is wholly in
the interests of the whole people
of the community and county, that
the time has now arrived when our
citizenship must understand tin
Club's objects and purposes and
must be induced to get in and help
to pull the good work along. The
meeting at once resolve itself into
:i committer ol tlx whole. and be
gan enlhuueu i.alh tin di ii'-.-iiop

Club. A Committee on Membership
was appointed as follows:
V. J. Mittson, chairman: M. H.
Cioldenberg, C. C. Davidson, Dr.
Coulter, Earl George and M. 15.
Initiation fee was fixed at Si. 00,
and dues S1.00 for every three
months for each member. The
committee was instructed by mo
tion to begin active work at once
to elist all those present to become
members of the Club. Twenty or
more joined. The membership
was instructed to pay initiation
fee and dues to Karl George, As
sistant Cashier of the First Na
tional Hank.
Messrs. Mechein, Davidson,
Israel, Campbell, Grubs and oth
ers spoke of different enterprises
that should be looked after by the
Club organization, and offered
some valuable suggestions, among
the most important of which is to
settle on some plan to most effect
ively advertise to the outside world
our resources agriculture, horti
culture and stock. There are many
other things too that will be con
sidered. An agricultural experi
ment station is a help that we must
have if we can get it, and no effort
that is in the power of the Com
mercial Club will be left undone to
secure it.
The meeting adjourned subject
to the call of the Secretary.

I take this means of calling your
attention to what is known as the
Flag Law. passed by the last leg
islature (chap. XLVIM ) and found
in the late compilation on page
103 of the English edition, and on
page 100 of the Spanish edition.
I request you to endeavor to have
the provisions of this law carried
out in spirit and earnestness.
You will observe that February
1 2th the anniversary of the birth
ol Abraham Lincoln - is the day
established by law for appropriate
patriotic exercises.
The accompanying outline ol the
program will suggest to you what
may be done on that day. This
occasion allords a rare opportun
ity for implanting in children such
patriotic sentiments as tend to
make them loyal citizens. Let
them year over and over the story
of the building of our nation. Let
them individually take part in tin
exercises befitting the occassion.
Let all friends of common schools
join in honoring Flag Paw Thus,
