Tho business men of this city feel ag
grieved over this treatmont by tho of
llcials. An effort will bo made to got
tho road to change the order and have
tlio .workmen returned to this city,
And havo received the following roplies,
which go to show that the people of this
city aro dead in earnest in regard to
pomething being done for tho advance
ment of the intorevtHof our city.
Such being tho case, it only remains
for our people to get together at once
aud oiganize the club and proceed to
get Red Cloud before tho world iu tho
mere are many things or puDMc in
terest that should be looked after at
once, and only a united people can do
that very thing, which is bo necessary at
this time for tlio salvation of our city.
A commercial club, olllcored with our
most enterprising men, would go far to
ward putting tho city on its feet. It is
a lack of unison that has put us whore
wo are today. If wo had hud a com
mercial club to look after matters, no
doubt but what wo could have prevent

men to other places, which has just
Then thero is tho "good roadfl Bub

Tho club would bo purely for tho bon
otitof tho city and county, and would
ut all timoB bo ready and willing to take
hold of tiny project that might come up
for consideration. In this club wo want
only such men as will contribute of their
time nnd means to tho upbuildingof tho
city, aud aro in real earnest in regard to
its welfare. "Push, energy and pluck"
muBt be tho motto ut all times. Wo can
not afford to havo men sulk in their
tents whon thoy should bo at work holp
ing to advance tho interests of Rod
A public mass mooting should bo
culled at onco by tho mayor for tho
speedy organization of this club, bo that
a protest might bo ontored at onco to
tho li, it M. headquarters against the
removal of their employes from this
city, and every business man and citizon
should bo present to sign a remonstrance
to that effect.
Tho timo is now opportune for thiB
movement nnd all should grasp it
and sot Red Cloud on tho top wavo,
Traveling men say that thiB is tho
best city in the valloy for businoss, and
that wo do moro business than many of
tho other cities in thu sta.o twico as
large. Wo all know that, and therefore
lot's try to increase it tho coming year
I approve of tho call upon tho busi
ness mon for tho formation of a Com
mercial Club, and tho machinery to bo
worked for tlio interest uf Red Cloud.
It is high time that wo act togothor and
try to bo united, nnd I approve of tho
tho idea of im proving tho roads leuding
to R. C, and will aid nil projocts for tlio
interest of tho city. M. R. 11i:nti.i:v.

Your circular lotter received, in which
you ask if I am in fnvor of a Commer

will hotter our condition ub a city. A
Commercial Club would, no doubt, bo a
groat bonotlt, in that it would always be
ready to roceivo and investigate propo
sitions for tho establishing of Industries
in our city, It would also eeoin to be
tho duty of this club to croate a sonti

in maintaining those ulreudyoatablishod.
