At a mass meeting held at the Armory
yesterday there was a free expression
as to the merits of the purchase of
Chautauqua Park by the city, the
amount involved being $15,000. The
area of the proposed purchase is about
seven acres of camp ground and forest,
Ashland Creek running directly through
the property. ,
- The transfer implies that every cent
of the purchase money shall be ex
pended by the Chautauqua Association
In a new building, not only for Chau
tauqua, but also general public pur
poses as an auditorium. Many urge the
erection of a building costing at least
$25,000. confident that the difference
between the amount realized from sale
of the park and the- maximum figure
stated can be easily raised by private
subscription. The prospect of the trans
fer has reached such a stage that plans
for the new structure are already on
