New Norfolk Commercial club di rectors : A. L. Kllllan , L. P. Paso- walk , F. A. Heeler , W. A. Wltzlgmnn. 11. A. Pnscwalk , J. E. Haase. C. P. Parish , C. C. Gow , C. J. Fleming. Mr. Gow Is the only new member , the oth- rr eight having been re-elected at the annual meeting held in the city hall. It was the most enthusiastic meet ing that the Norfolk Commercial club has over held. Despite- the below-zero weather , every chair in the city hall was occupied , the gathering being made up of representative business men. The atmosphere was filled with more optimistic faith In the future of Norfolk than had been known in years. President Kllllan said ho never had felt so good over a Commercial rlub meeting as he did over this one , and when the session ended , near mid night , the business men present scenv ed all to feel that the time had come when Norfolk \uis about to do the great things by way of developing Into the commercial metropolis of a rich territory , which its natural location and railroad facilities have planned for its destiny. There was a very pronounced souti nient among those present that mass meetings of the business men of this sort should bo held every little while perhaps every three months , In ordei to talk over the possibilities of the pity and to generate new enthusiasm President Killlan's annual roporl was received enthusiastically. II showed that a good many things hat ; been done during the year for Nor folk's advancement which were wortl : while and productive of results. Tin report showed that the club has todaj only 100 members , but from the onthu siusm manifest at this meeting am from the fact that there are a mini her of new business men In the cltj "who have not yet been Invited to joli tlu club , It is believed that a cam palgtt for new members would be cm Iiiontly successful at this time. Frank Pilger , present county super Intcndcnt of Pierce county and edlto : and publisher of the Nebraska Schoo Review , was present at the meeting Ills magazine of fifty-two pages hai been published In Norfolk two year : and on motion the Commercial clul voted to give him It. * , moral supper and it committee was'- appointed t < confer with Mr. Pilger. Treasurer Pasewalk read ns ! report which showed that there yet reitialnei in the treasury JliU.Oy , while the-ells bursements for the year were $ S19XE ! Races Here , After All. More hope was Injected Into tin race committee who Thursday nigh unuouneed there would be no races ii Norfolk next summer. The club Is ti give all aid possible to the race coin uiittee and it looks now as if the race will come to Norfolk this year at'to all. A motion was made and carrlei that Norfolk have these races and r M. Barrett was asked to meet will the lace circuit people next Mondaj when dates are to be made. Till meeting takes place at the Oxnnrcl he : tel in this city. President K1 Mian's Report. President Killlan said : Members of the Norfolk Coininercin Club and Friends : Some one lias sat "It is better to live a maxim than t tell it. " Nevertheless I feel that few words from mo will do no ham It has been customary here for th president or sei-ietary to tell what th board of directors has done the pas year. Whether we have done nine' ' or little we must leave to you to judge Some things we have attempted hav not yet been accomplished , but "Horn was not built in a day , " nor will Noi fork be. If you could say that nothln has been accomplished it would not b right to condemn the board of direc ors. I can say that no set of me ever had a greater desire nor mad any greater effort for the welfare e the city In which they lived than ha this board with whom I have had th pleasure of working the past tw jears. I am not here to make e : cuses. Excuses are not what we wan It is results we need and must luivi The present board of directors ai till business men and .havo their ind vldual business interests to look afte In addition to this they have give their best efforts for the upbuilding < our little city. True we have not a compllshed all that we have attemp ed , but I will ask the man who prone to criticise if he always accon pllshcs his end. There is one tiling more than an other that I wish to Impress on tl : members of the Commercial club , do not mean the directors , I mean tl whole Commercial club and all mer bers of the club. We need your help , we need yet suggestions and we need your mone If something looks good It is our dul to attempt to get it. Sometimes v fall because of lack of support hot iluanclal and moral. . We have put : time and labor , we have spent our o\\ money and often no credit is given f < our effort , when as a matter of fa some one outside and not we is r spouslblo for failure. I wish every member of the Norfo Commercial club would feel that ho a part of the club , that success d ponds on his personal efforts , and wish that we had I50 ! members Instet of 100. I wish every man was a hoot or. I wish that everybody would a predate his own worth to this coi munity. I wish every man would ret Izo how good a town Norfolk is and I possibilities. I have absolute faith Norfolk , I have faith In its future at in its growtli and advancement , but believe , too , that we must all woi together. It does not make any d forcnco in what line of business yc are engaged or what your occupatlc or profession way be , you can do yoi share to aid the growth of our city. The Year's Record. It does not "listen bad" when v r- hear what has really been douo Norfolk the past year. Olvo the credit where It rightfully belongs , but like wise take credit to yourself for your linrt In the attainments of our busy little city. The citizens of Norfolk have commenced the erection of a beautiful $2r,000 Y. M. C. A. building ; ihrougli tlio offoitB of some a beauti ful $10,000 Carnegie library has boon completed ; seven blocks of paving has been laid ou Norfolk avenue. Wo have entertained not less than ten conventions and In every case our guests have gone away with praise for our citizens and our city. Last spring when there was danger of poor sccel coin being planted , let- lers , together with a formula feir testIng - Ing corn , we're mailed to the farmers living around Norfolk. The study of good roads tins taken considerable Lime of your directors and has ended In our securing through our county commissioners the inheritance tax fund of more than $1,500 for the pur pose of building three mid one-hall miles of oil roael on South Thirteenth street. The practicability of oiled roads has been thoroughly demon strated and we believe that our little slarl will bo Ihe means of our getting miles of good roads leading into Nor folk , which of course wo all must ael mlt will improve our city and the farm land surrounding It. An effort has been made by your dl < rectors lo promote an interurban rail road from Norfolk southwest through Madison county which would bring us in contact with some of the richest farming land In the stale of Nebraska This project has not been abandoned Wo ( Irmly believe it is plausible ami worthy of our efforts. Lack of lime to devote to tlio matter and lack ol funds are the only reasons that greater or progress has not boon made. An effort lias boon made to organize n stock company and purchase a tracl of land ami give the use of it to the city for the purpose of holding al kinds of athletic games , race meets stock shows , etc. While there Is ne assurance thai Ibis will bo accomplished plishod yel there is hope , and surelj a move of this kind Is commendable even though it does nol iiicel will every one's views. We have been con stantly watching for an opportunity o : securing some factory or Industry le occupy soiiio of our vacant building ! that are suitable for various Indus tries.x We have been unsuccessful li our efforts , but believe that the di rectors next year should continue theli e-fforts In Ibis direction. Sooner 01 later we will secure something wortl while. In several cases exccssiv < freight rates have boon the means o our failure along these lines. Tin Commercial club had a thorough or gani/.ution of workers to carry tin paving bonds. The Commercial club secured spe clul train service for the state convcn tion of Commercial clubs at CoUimbui and was represented by about fort ; members , Iho l rgesl representatloi of any club in the state. You will notice in our report tha our secretary , Mr. L. P. Pasewalk , ha made no charge for his.services. . . Prc vlous years $300 per annum has beci paid the secretary. We have not hui sufficient revenue to pay a secretary There are several other things mule way that if they are accomplished wll bo wortl. ' ' of your praise. /'xDepot Coming. Through tl& > c ( Torts ol the city coun cil and Ihe CoirtYijerclal club a promts for a new joint 'tippot of Ihe Unioi Pacific and Ihe M.V , , O. has been sc cured ; the depot Is i ; > J built but w have it coming. An el\jt to get th Northwestern to run its trains up tow : was unsuccessful the Imie beliif bill Ibis mailer may ycl be ii'ljusle ' satisfactorily to all concerned W have gained a number of most lent business men and a few inuu 1 trios In the past year. Whether thes j have come to us of their own accor is immaterial. They have come be , cause they see u future for Norfoll \Ve > areglad to welcome them and wl 3 ask them right now to lend thei ? shoulder to the wheel and help us t t work for a Norfolk of 10,000 inhal i Hants In Ihe next five years. I wl : ' suggest a few things that we shoul > have. We should have a public parl ' \Ve i should have a hospital. Wo shoul i have a wholesale grocery establisl ment. We should have a candy factory B * j We should have a canning factory. W i Hhoiiid have a small packing plant , an " I a number of similar industries t 11 , make Norfolk the ellstribuling conic e thai it-should bo by virtue of its a < f vantageous location. s I The last but by no means least- is yes , the best thing wo have ever dom D has been to assist Mr. Carlson 1 : . launching "Carlson's Breeders Ri view" and to secure and place a mm her of high bred horses amoiig 01 farmers at absolute cost. Mr. Car son's paper will bo the means of mal Ing Norfolk famous and his living hei has already advertised us more tha anything that has been done. Thes things will not only give our city pu liclty all over the world , but will ten to bring the farmers closer to us. \ \ are In a farming community and vi penel on the farmers' patronage nn should do everything In our power I assist him in making his industi more profitable and attractive. Thei is nothing that will create more prlt and Interest in farming than that i raising thoroughbred cattle , horse hogs , sheep and poultry. The farm < Is likewise interested in our growt and prosperity. With the growth i ir our city we furnish him a better ma ket and increase the values of h farm lands. So wo can all readily se thai this movement starled by M Carlson and supported by the Cot merclal club will bo of untold value us all. Mr. Carlson has had llatterir offers from other places. They ai > r . anxious to have him among them ai want his services to build up the e- respective cities and communltie Ho prefers to stay with us and givi his efforts and labors free of charg We are glad to have him with us at we want him to know that we appr I elate him. .d I will say that If nothing else hit t- been done the entire year this 01 P- thing will be worth thousands of de 11- lars to this community in the ne : , ! three or four years. ts We are thoroughly enthused ovi two projects , good roads and "Cai son's Breeders Review" and all th goes with It. Concluding , I will say that the mi who never does anything never muki a mistake ; the man who does not tempt things never accomplishes thei So wo have worked ou the theory th it IB bettor to try and fall than not t at all. Anything that IB worth havii Is worth trying for , whether it la luri n or small , and things will come to ' one ? by one , and wo will surely reap the reward of our efforts. I thank you , A New Factory Building. A number of those present made brief talks. Among these was W. W. Wasson of the Norfolk Oil and Chem ical company , n new Norfolk enter prise , who said his linn had selected Norfolk because of its advantageous location. He said his company would soon build a new fncteiry which would bo a credit to the city. Ho believed In the town and Its future. G. L. Carlson , the scientific horse bleeding expert , declared his faith in Norfolk and said that tills country doesn't know the value of Its land. Blair , Neb. , has been made the seed corn capital of the world , through ap preciation of agricultural possibilities.
